It’s called MPP, and it drives liberals crazy. And thanks to a judge in the 9th Circuit, it’s going to be in practice for a little while longer. MPP stands for Migrant Protection Protocols, although if you’ve heard of it, it’s likely under its popular nickname, “remain in Mexico.” Roughly speaking, the program forces asylum…

          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 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.”

          California Judges Hand Trump Rare Court Win By Allowing Return Of Migrants To Mexico      Comment   Translate Page      

It might be a sign of the apocalypse, but a panel of judges in the Ninth Circuit has temporarily blocked a California judge's order to halt a Trump administration policy to allow the return of some asylum seekers to Mexico while they await their court dates - handing the administration a rare victory in the courts.

According to the Associated Press, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a temporary stay Friday, blocking a ruling by San Francisco Judge Richard Seeborg, who delivered a temporary injunction on Monday blocking the policy while challenges filed by civil liberties groups moved forward.

Seeborg justified the injunction by arguing that the policy failed to take into account the dangers that migrants might face in Mexico.


The three-judge panel set a Tuesday deadline for civil liberties groups to submit arguments for why the policy should be discontinued while the issue winds its way through the courts. The panel set a Wednesday deadline for the White House to argue why the policy should remain in effect.

The government asked the panel to reconsider the injunction, arguing that Seeborg's argument was made in error, and that keeping the migrants in the US, where federal facilities are overflowing, forcing the government to release more asylum seekers amid an unprecedented surge in border-crossings. More than 100,000 migrants crossed into the US via the southern border in March - a 12-year high.

The circuit court managed to block the injunction before it took effect, meaning there was no interruption to the Trump administration's plans to start returning some migrants to Mexico, according to the AP.

Though the decision doesn't mean the policy will be upheld indefinitely - it could still ultimately be ruled unconstitutional - but it does underscore how San Francisco judges have been a persistent thorn in the administration's side when it comes to immigration policy, contributing to the White House's six percent win rate on legal challenges surrounding its policies.


At a time when appropriations authorized by Trump's national emergency declaration appear to be moving forward in spite of a flurry of legal challenges, one can't help but wonder if this marks a turning point in the administration's struggle to implement its immigration agenda, as the crisis at the border - which Democrats declared "fake" as recently as February - has now been widely acknowledged, as municipal officials from border cities like McAllen, Texas, which have strained under the influx of migrants requiring shelter, medical care and other services, have warned of a "system-wide collapse."

          'Hostile And Aggressive' Migrants Break Through Border Into Southern Mexico, Join US-Bound Caravan      Comment   Translate Page      

A group of around 350 Central American migrants broke the locks on a gate at the Guatemala-Mexico border, forcing their way into Mexico to join a larger caravan of 2,000 or so migrants headed towards the United States, AP reports. 

According to the National Immigration Institute, the migrants were acting in a "hostile" and " aggressive" manner - and said that they were attacking local police in the Mexican village of Metapa near the city of Tapachula. 

The incident echoed a similar confrontation on the same border bridge between Mexico and Guatemala last year. 

Migrants breach Guatemala-Mexico border in October, 2018

Several groups of migrants in the southern border state of Chipas have expressed frustration at Mexico's cold attitude towards them, as they have been slowed or stopped during their northbound journey, according to AP

A group of several hundred Cuban, African and Central American migrants have been waiting at the immigration offices in Tapachula for documents that would allow them to travel to the U.S. border, where most plan to request asylum.

Some members of that group have scuffled with immigration authorities and broken windows at the offices in recent days, accusing officials of making them wait too long for papers. -AP

One group of Central American and Cuban migrants estimated at 2,500 strong have been stuck for at least a week in the Chipas town of Mapastepec, north-west of Tapachula.

          Donald Trump campaign eyes chances to vie for states lost in 2016      Comment   Translate Page      

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump loves to recount how his 2016 campaign defied expectations to pierce the vaunted Democratic “blue wall.” For 2020, he’s looking to do one better.

As his re-election campaign kicks into high gear, it’s exploring opportunities to contest states he lost in 2016, aiming to keep divided Democrats on the defensive.

Trump on Monday visits one of those states, Minnesota, where he lost to Hillary Clinton by fewer than 45,000 votes in 2016. The campaign also is targeting New Mexico, Nevada, and New Hampshire, all states where Trump fell short by under 100,000 votes.

The tax day visit to Minnesota is meant to highlight the effect of Trump’s signature legislative accomplishment, the 2017 tax overhaul, in a historically Democratic-leaning state that appears to offering Republicans hope.

“We see trends in the state that we like,” said senior campaign adviser Bill Stepien. “We like what we see on the ground. We like the energy we’re seeing.”

In 1984, Minnesota was the only state carried by Democratic nominee Walter Mondale, a former Minnesota senator, against President Ronald Reagan. Over the past several presidential elections Minnesota has grown increasingly competitive, particularly as Trump’s rise coincided with a realignment of many white-working class voters to the GOP. And in an otherwise bleak 2018 for the GOP, Trump helped flip two congressional seats to Republicans.

With record fundraising for this stage in a presidential cycle, both the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee are largely unrestrained financially, allowing them to make riskier investments in states won by Clinton. All the target states, except for Nevada, also have Senate races in 2020, a factor that the party believes will provide extra return.

Any early spending could pay dividends for the GOP in 2020, even if those efforts aren’t successful, forcing Democrats opponents to expend precious resources later in the campaign cycle to defend what should be safer Democratic states.

The Minnesota visit marks Trump’s third to the state since taking office. His first two were political trips to help put two Republican congressional candidates, Jim Hagedorn and Pete Stauber, over the top in 2018.

The focus on Minnesota and Trump’s other near-misses come as there is mounting concern within the Democratic Party that its heavily contested primary is providing Trump with an opportunity to reinforce his political position with little in the way of organized opposition.

“Trump and the RNC are hell-bent on expanding on the list of states Trump won in 2016 by targeting states like Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Nevada, and they’re counting on early money to build a formidable ground game to make it happen,” said a recent Democratic National Committee fundraising email.

Stephen Stepanek, chairman of the New Hampshire GOP, silenced the room at the party’s recent spring fundraiser, keynoted by the president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump, when he said the Democrats have “out-organized us. Outraised us. And quite frankly, we have to do a better job.”

“We are in a war right now,” he said. Trump lost the state by fewer than 3,000 votes and the GOP recently placed five staffers in the state ahead of 2020.

To date, early Democratic investments have been focused on shoring up the “blue wall” of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Until 2016, they had been solidly Democratic for two decades. All three states saw Democratic gains in 2018 that the party believes indicate they are ripe for returning to the fold in 2020.

The Trump campaign is also eyeing the fallout of a political scandal among Democratic leaders in Virginia to determine whether there’s an opening in the state. But it acknowledges that the heavy concentration of federal workers in the northern part of the state makes it a more challenging opportunity.

The Democratic super PAC Priorities USA has announced a $100 million campaign in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Florida, all states that Trump carried. Its publicly announced “phase two” plans include a focus on Trump’s narrow-loss states of Nevada and New Hampshire.

Trump’s team still believes his likeliest path to the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency means re-running the 2016 map. But it is exploring other permutations.

“We’re casting a wide net and looking for opportunities to grow the map,” said Stepien.

          Can Non-Native English Speakers Teach English Abroad?      Comment   Translate Page      

Can non-native English Speakers Teach English Abroad? Yes, it's possible although it depends on where you want to teach and the school.

Usually schools in Asia require teachers to be a native speaker and to have a degree to get a legal visa.

And schools often prefer a native speaker to a non-native speaker.

But it depends.

Now I'll try to answer this question for Japan, China, Korea and Taiwan.


Can non-native English speakers teach English in Japan?

Yes, it's possible.

I know a German girl here in Fukuoka who got a job teaching English in an eikaiwa. She said the rule is that you have to be able to prove that you have 10 years of experience learning English.

She didn't apparently have to offer any proof of that, but she is German and Caucasian which might matter somewhat in some places. Germans and Dutch both tend to speak English well and they do study it in school.


I met a guy online through the course who was from Mexico (if I remember correctly) and he was there teaching English on a humanties visa - the visa often given to English teachers.

Can non-native English speakers teach English in China?


I met many non-native speakers teaching English in China. More importantly I have met various teachers online through the course that were non-natives and taught there legally on Z visas.

The ones that I can remember were from Holland and Czech Republic.

The legal visa is a Z visa.

The not-so legal visa for teaching is the F visa. Some schools may provide that, however it's not the official visa - it's a work around. 

Can non-native English speakers teach English in Korea?

Not legally that I am aware of unless you can get one of those visas below. 

However, I have heard something about an E-1 visa if you are a professor. But other than that you need to be a native speaker to get the usual E-2 visa.

What about in Taiwan?

Not that I am aware of, but you can check your options for other visas below.

The VISA is the reason why you often need to be a native speaker.

But if you can get another kind of visa then you may have more options.

Here are some other kinds of visas that you can get that may allow you to legally teach English.

  • working holiday visas
  • spouse visas
  • student visas
  • heritage visas

These sorts of visas may allow you to have a job possibly part time or more, but they may not apply to you if you are not from a certain country, married to, studying, or have ancestry there.

You may also learn more by reading teaching without a degree.


If you look different then you are going to stand out and get some discrimination in some places and that can vary depending on your race.

Everyone discriminates.

Relationships are an act of discrimination. Why did you choose your girl or boyfriend over another?

Employers (all over the world) always discriminate. But in Asia it's common for employers to say they want a female teacher or a Caucasian teacher. This sort of discrimination can be shocking for some.

Because in the west you won't find that on paper or advertised.

But think about it.

Who gets the job?

The person who they think is going to be the best.

Caucasian teachers are preferred by many schools. But it doesn't mean that you can't teach abroad if you are not white, but some schools definitely prefer that.

And then when you add the fact you aren't a native speaker then your chances decrease.

Will a CELTA, TEFL, or TESOL certificate help?

They don't replace the fact that you aren't a native speaker. They don't guarantee anything either. It's something that you can put on your resume that won't hurt it, but it doesn't compare to actual experience teaching English.

If you want to hear a different story then you can go do a search for TEFL courses and many of them will tell you that you will get a better job or make more money. But in my experience that is mostly B.S. marketing.

The main benefit you should get out of a course should be what you learn because getting a job is just the beginning and you can often get a job without a course.

Choose wisely though as courses are not created equally.

I would choose a course that's targeted towards teaching the students you want to teach. ESLinsider's courses are targeted towards teaching mostly children in Asia.

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 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.

          Chevron to acquire Anadarko Petroleum for $33 billion      Comment   Translate Page      

Chevron positioned itself to become the dominant oil producer in the field that is driving the U.S. shale revolution when it said Friday that it was buying Anadarko Petroleum for $33 billion.

The acquisition is the largest takeover in the global oil industry in three years and signals that shale drilling, which was once dominated by small and nimble independent companies, has now become a battleground for oil giants. It also demonstrates that the largest oil companies believe that they can profitably drill in shale fields even when crude oil prices are much lower than they were a decade ago.

In buying Anadarko, San Ramon’s Chevron is picking up major oil and natural gas projects in the Gulf of Mexico, Colorado, Mozambique, Algeria and Ghana. But most of all, it is building on its position in the Permian Basin of West Texas and New Mexico, which recently passed Saudi Arabia’s Ghawar field as the world’s most productive oil field.

More than a dozen oil and gas pipelines serving the Permian are expected to be completed by the middle of 2020, potentially increasing exports from the Gulf of Mexico region to 8 million from 2 million barrels a day.

Anadarko and Chevron have a 75-mile stretch of contiguous acreage in the Permian, which should help the companies reduce production and transportation costs. About a third of total U.S. oil production comes from the basin, which is largely responsible for the production and export boom of recent years.

“This is a compelling transaction,” Chevron CEO Michael Wirth told analysts. “We intend to accelerate activity in Anadarko’s Permian acreage.”

Chevron is the world’s 10th largest company producing oil and gas, and Anadarko ranks 41st, according to Rystad Energy, a consulting firm. Once the merger is completed by the end of the year, Chevron will climb to seventh...

          Ai Weiwei recorda estudantes desaparecidos no México      Comment   Translate Page      

Um milhão de peças de Lego contra o esquecimento: no México, o artista chinês Ai Weiwei expõe, em trabalho artístico, um monumento aos 43 alunos mortos no massacre de Iguala. Obra de Ai Weiwei recriou os rostos de 43 jovens que estão desaparecidos desde uma ação policial há quase cinco anos. Edgard Garrido/Reuters Com um milhão de tijolos coloridos de Lego, Ai Weiwei, artista chinês exilado em Berlim, recriou os rostos de 43 jovens de Ayotzinapa que estão desaparecidos desde uma ação policial há quase cinco anos. O mural faz parte da exposição Restablecer memorias, aberta neste sábado (13) no Museu Universitário de Arte Contemporânea (MUAC), na Cidade do México. Com seu trabalho artístico, Ai Weiwei disse querer lembrar as vítimas da violência. "O autoconhecimento é baseado na memória", disse o artista de 61 anos. "O vazio é um insulto à dignidade do ser humano e pode ser a fonte de raiva e violência." O mural é acompanhado por uma videoinstalação com entrevistas de parentes, policiais e autoridades mexicanas. O sequestro dos estudantes provocou uma avalanche de indignação em todo o mundo. Os 43 alunos de uma faculdade em Ayotzinapa, no sul do país, desapareceram em setembro de 2014 quando queriam viajar para participar de uma manifestação na Cidade do México. De acordo com a Procuradoria-Geral mexicana, o grupo foi levado para o estado de Guerrero, no sul, por policiais corruptos e entregues à gangue de drogas Guerreros Unidos. Eles teriam sido considerados membros de uma facção hostil pela gangue, que os matou num depósito de lixo e depois queimou os seus corpos. Peritos independentes da Comissão Interamericana de Direitos Humanos duvidam dos resultados das investigações oficiais, que foram marcadas por negligências e tentativas de encobrimento. O governo foi criticado internacionalmente devido ao tratamento lento dado ao caso. Os críticos também veem uma conexão entre o Estado e o crime organizado. Ai Weiwei posa para fotógrafos na abertura da exposição, na quinta-feira (11) Edgard Garrido/Reuters Na abertura da exposição, Ai Weiwei disse que o tema o comoveu não apenas como artista, mas também como ser humano. "Quando se ouve que alguém está sendo maltratado, que o filho do seu vizinho nunca mais voltará, e depois de quatro anos, o governo ainda não esclareceu o caso – que tipo de governo é esse? Em que tipo de sociedade vivemos?", indagou Ai. Em seu país de origem, a China, Ai se posicionou repetidamente de forma crítica ao governo em Pequim, o que o levou à prisão por certo tempo. Em relação à escolha do material para o seu mais recente trabalho, ele disse que sempre entendeu o Lego como um meio "democrático". "Qualquer um pode usá-lo, todo mundo reconhece", disse o artista. Além disso, Ai Weiwei afirmou que lhe agrada o fato de as peças individuais de seus retratos o lembrarem de pixels de computador.

          L'essentiel d'Omnivore 2019 ... en deux jours      Comment   Translate Page      
On l'appelle officiellement L'Omnivore World Tour, car il est international mais les parisiens disent le festival Omnivore. Il a lieu chaque année au premier trimestre pour célébrer la cuisine contemporaine à la Maison de la Mutualité, construite en 1930, à côté de l'église Saint-Nicolas-du-Chardonnet, au 24 rue Saint-Victor dans le 5e arrondissement, dans un très pur style arts-déco.

Il existe depuis 14 ans mais je crois que j'y suis allée pour la première fois il y a 7 ans, en 2012. Ce fut cette année les 10-11 et 12 mars autour de 140 invités (chefs, artisans, paysans, vignerons, sommeliers) conviés à partager leur passion de la cuisine avec les festivaliers. Car c’est ça l'esprit Omnivore : échanger ses bonnes recettes et ses impressions avant et après les master-class, dans les couloirs et les ascenseurs puisque la manifestation investit 3 étages. et il serait impossible de rendre compte de tout ce que j'y ai fait mais je vais tenter de restituer l'essentiel. 

Forcément, d'année en année on attend beaucoup de ce festival. Des nouveautés, des partenaires motivés et motivants, des jeunes chefs sincères et enthousiastes et des grandes pointures aussi pour apporter un regard sur le long terme et assurer des démonstrations de leur savoir-faire. Ceux qui disent que c'est le Festival de Cannes de la gastronomie ont bien raison et j'avais très envie de consacrer une émission spéciale à cette manifestation. Ce n'est pas une journée que j'y ai passé mais deux, du matin au soir, et elle sera ré-écoutable en podcast à partir du site de Needradio.
La question du dressage est cruciale dans les émissions culinaires. On l'entend souvent, et à juste titre puisqu'il procure la première impression. Or la notion d'assiette plate/creuse n'a plus guère de sens. On préfère le terme d'écrin, en précisant un critère de taille. On détourne les usages codifiés jusqu'à récemment. On brouille les lignes. Ainsi on peut utiliser une assiette à dessert pour y déposer le pain, ou une tasse à café pour servir une sauce.
Guillaume Sanchez (chef de Neso, 6 rue Papillon, 75009 Paris) est peut-être celui qui fut le plus original (avec justesse). En posant un pinceau imprégné de sauce sur une coupelle de bois pour finir son fameux dessert à peindre ou en présentant deux bouchées de poulpe sur un os de seiche ... tout blanc, jolie manière de raconter la mer.
Des porcelainiers comme Pillivuyt, une société française vieille de 200 ans, l'ont bien compris et accepte le principe de "créer une page blanche pour laisser libre cours à l'imagination des chefs en se l'appropriant" comme me l'a confié Amaury Osmont Du Tillet, responsable Ile-de-France de la marque. Leur création en forme d'oignon est très inspirante. La gastronomie s'invite chez les particuliers et la décoration aussi, suivant les tendances de couleur comme le noir et le beige.

On peut ainsi avoir envie d'acquérir l'assiette pliée à angle droit que l'on peut voir dans Top Chef. Son fabricant n'a pas le droit de communiquer à ce propos mais je n'ai pas l'interdiction de vous révéler qui c'est puisque je l'ai reconnue. Et il faut beaucoup de savoir-faire pour oser se lancer dans des techniques complexes comme les tasses carrées, sachant que les arêtes ne sont pas réalisables en porcelaine.
Le porcelainier a imaginé aussi une série dans un esprit bistronomique reprenant les codes des monuments parisiens qui est très réussie. En tant que partenaire d'Omnivore, Pillivuyt équipe bien entendu les grandes scènes même si souvent les chefs arrivent avec leur propre vaisselle.

Grosso modo il y a deux types de choses à faire à Omnivore, rencontrer et discuter avec les producteurs ou les partenaires sur leur stand, et assister dans une salle plus ou moins grande à ce qu'on appelle une Scène, qui en fait est une sorte de master-class ou de démonstration, en général se terminant par une dégustation, puisqu'il s'agit tout de même de cuisine.

C'est un des grands plaisir d'Omnivore d'assister à des master-class dans ce grand auditorium au sous-sol de la Mutu, dans une salle immense et pourtant c'est très agréable d'y être dans la position intime d'une conversation entre amis, marquée par la convivialité et un certain humour témoignant que le meilleur régime alimentaire est ... bien entendu... omnivore.

Certaines démonstrations sont plus marquantes que d'autres. Je me souviens encore -il y a six ans déjà- de Pierre Sang, finaliste de Top Chef 2011 coupant des légumes à la mandoline tout en racontant sa manière de cuire un oeuf à 65° pendant une demi-heure, alors que des champignons de Paris rôtissaient dans une vieille cocotte comme le faisait sa grand-mère, avec des échalotes, et de l'ail compotée. On sentait presque l'odeur de noisettes rien qu'en l'écoutant évoquer ses plus anciens souvenirs de cuisine, engrangés depuis l'âge de 7 ans par cet auvergnat d'adoption.

Je me souviens aussi d'Adeline Grattard, chef du Yam'Tcha et de "sa" technique pour faire cuire une volaille en seulement 10 minutes, en la cuisant verticalement, de manière à ce que la graisse se loge dans la cuisse, qui est l'endroit le plus épais,  et y bouillonne pour accélérer la cuisson. Cette façon de faire, inspirée du canard laqué, dispense de retourner la viande sur le flanc. Il n'y a même pas à surveiller.

Je n'oublierai jamais Florent Ladeyn et son estaminet (une étoile quand même) où le partage est élevé au rang de vertu. Les plats sont déposés en centre de table. Le pain arrive avec une incision pour donner envie au client d'intervenir en le rompant.

Christophe Felder m'avait impressionnée avec un dessert présenté dans des verres à pied, composé de crème anglaise, sur laquelle il a déposé des suprêmes de pamplemousse rosé, ajouté des agrumes confits. Il a commencé ensuite une étonnante vinaigrette à base d'huile d'olive vanillée et de cassonade pour assaisonner un mesclun qu'il a délicatement ajouté dans les verres avec un peu de confiture de mandarine pour enlever le coté amer de la salade. Avec une belle cuillerée de sorbet pamplemousse pour terminer. C'était sublime.

J'ai aussi des souvenirs de Pierre Hermé reconnaissant qu'il ne reste pas campé sur ses positions. Lui qui n'appréciait pas le jasmin a changé d'avis sur les conseils d'un ami. Il insiste sur le fait qu'il faut du temps pour mémoriser les arômes et affiner ses choix, ce que disent tous les grands cuisiniers aussi. C'est Guy Martin qui me l'a appris : il faut gouter 15 fois avant de savoir si on aime ou non.

Je me souviens aussi de Gérard Vives sur la Scène artisan. Gérard est un spécialiste des épices. Il a créé le Comptoir des Poivres, épice roi selon ce fin gourmet qui est aussi cuisinier. Michel Rostang comme Alain Senderens figurent parmi ses clients fidèles. Il est tout de même utile de rappeler que, sauf si on pratique des cuissons à basse température il faut attendre le dernier moment pour poivrer. Qu'il est préférable de choisir une mouture plutôt grosse qu'ultra fine parce qu'il ne perdra alors pas sa puissance aromatique. 

Il avait amené un poivre long qui a séduit nos nez par sa fraicheur, son coté végétal, citronné, à peine mentholé, boisé et même cacaoté. Il apprécie les poivres chargés en essence et va les débusquer aux quatre coins de notre planète.

Gérard Vives recommande un poivre pour une recette, à l'instar d'Apicius. Ainsi le poivre long sera un allié précieux en pâtisserie. C'est le poivre blanc qu'il convient d'employer pour le "fameux" steack au poivre. Il nous a encouragé à mener nos propres expériences, par exemple en torréfiant des baies de Setchuan avant de les écraser et de comparer les notes aromatiques en faisant l'opération inverse.
Cette année la séparation sucré-salé a été supprimée et la Grande Scène fut alternativement l'une ou l'autre, ce qui a peut-être brouillé la lisibilité des master-class.

Six scènes avec 140 invités ... Le planning est forcément complexe et le choix hasardeux même si il faut rendre hommage aux organisateurs le planning a été respecté à la minute près, et nous n'avions jamais connu cela à Omnivore.
Malgré tout il était impossible de tout faire et je ne peux pas savoir si mes choix furent judicieux. J'ai essayé d'aller chaque jour sur chaque scène, la Grande Scène bien sûr, la Scène Artisan, la Scène Cocktail, la Scène Tasting, la Scène café by Lavazza (qui a permis de découvrir des associations insolites mets et café, et des cocktails étonnants) ... et de déguster de délicieux desserts.
Un sixième lieu de conférence, nouveau cette année, était vraiment particulier parce qu'il n'offrait ni à manger ni à boire. C'est la Scène Grand Angle qui donne tout à entendre sur ceux qui pensent et font la cuisine aujourd'hui.

J'ai assisté à une rencontre entre Guillaume Sanchez (28 ans seulement, pâtissier de formation, depuis un an à la tête de Neso), Christophe Saintagne (qui est passé par le Plaza, le Crillon, le Meurice, et depuis trois ans chef du restaurant Papillon), et Christophe Pelé (ancien de Bigarade, chef du Clarence).  On leur a demandé d'explorer les nouveaux codes et les nouvelles frontières de la haute cuisine. Ils ont été d'accord pour dire que la haute cuisine est nécessairement bonne, sincère et généreuse, et pouvant s'exprimer dans un plat aussi simple (d'apparence) que le sandwich, pourvu qu'il soit travaillé de manière intelligente avec des produits d'exception et de saison, en véhiculant un message.

Il ne suffit pas d'apprendre le métier dans des maisons d'exception qui ont reçu toutes les récompenses. Il faut savoir ensuite inscrire sa cuisine dans son époque, héritière d'une tradition mais en ayant aussi intégré les nouvelles pratiques. S'adapter est une nécessité incontournable.

Guillaume reconnait pratiquer une cuisine très personnelle (dont il a fait une démonstration éblouissante sur la Grande Scène en précisant que les dogmes sont faits pour être secoués et qu'il a tout redéfini en ce qui le concerne, lieu, équipe, propos), une cuisine très actuelle, qui parle de produits. Je préfère servir une excellente sardine plutôt qu'un turbot daubé. D'ailleurs il cuisine un délicieux bouillon de sardines rafraichi aux agrumes. Il estime que c'est aujourd'hui un acte patriote de faire de bons bouillons, de bons fumets ...

Il insistera sur la fin de la perte en cuisine et bien entendu sur l'emploi des produits de saison.

Ils n'ont pas tous le même point de vue sur le dressage. C'est rarement bon parce que c'est beau. C'est l'inverse. Alors qu'un autre chef aura le besoin viscéral de rendre ses assiettes esthétiques.

Par contre ils sont assez d'accord sur le fait qu'une étoile ne facilitera pas la création en raison des contraintes qu'elle impose. Et surtout ils vont être tous d'accord pour estimer que le sourcing est essentiel.

J'y ai suivi aussi une très intéressante interview de Jean-François Piège, disant que la vie c'est des opportunités, on les prend ou on les prend pas. La liberté c'est décider de ne pas faire, peut-être. Cet homme qui n'a jamais envoyé de CV de sa vie a déroulé son cursus et la philosophie de chacun de ses restaurants pour conclure que la cuisine est un terrain de jeu. L'important c'est ce que vit la personne qui vient s'asseoir.
Omnivore est un lieu où on retrouve avec plaisir des maisons que l'on connait déjà et dont on découvre les nouveautés. C'est aussi l'endroit où l'on fait connaissance avec des distributeurs inconnus de nous jusqu'à présent, ou mal connus, comme la Maison Medelys dont vous entendrez l'interview de son responsable des ventes, Yannick Thibault, dans l'émission ou Bleu Agave, qui importe et distribue du téquila, alors que quelques mètres plus loin se trouvait un spécialiste de mezcal.
J'ai appris que Marie Brizard fut la première femme liquoriste française. Parce qu'elle est une femme elle a dû s'associer avec un homme, et ce fut le mari d'une nièce, Jean-Baptiste Roger (1731-1795), pour fonder la société Marie Brizard et Roger en 1755 parce que à ce moment là les femmes de la bourgeoisie soit rentraient dans les ordres, soit oeuvraient dans des hospices. Elle avait une grande bonté d'âme et selon la légende elle aurait appris le secret de la fabrication d'un élixir soignant toute sorte de maux, d’un malheureux esclave noir brûlant de fièvre errant sur le port qu’elle aurait secouru et soigné. Il lui donna la recette en remerciement et comme son père, tonnelier et bouilleur de cru l'avait initiée à la distillation elle inventa une liqueur anisée qui portera son nom, à base d'épices, et d'une dizaine de plantes, dont le quinquina aux vertus antipaludéenne, le fameux anis vert, et de l'essence de citron qui fera dire aux marins que consommer cette liqueur est un moyen de lutter contre le scorbut. Elle passera toute sa vie dans son laboratoire et créera bien d'autres liqueurs comme le curaçao
L'histoire lui rend hommage puisque c'est son nom à elle (et pas celui de son mari) qui est passé à la postérité. Son anisette prit un essor rapide grâce aux échanges maritimes à travers le monde. Et en France à partir du moment où la bouteille a été déposée sur la table du roi Louis XV.
J'ai appris une astuce de mixologue à Omnivore : vaporiser le haut de l'intérieur du verre d'une essence, par exemple le jasmin ... qui créera une vraie surprise si le cocktail est à base d'agrumes. J'ai gouté sur la scène Cocktail le seul vrai apéritif corse, le Cap Corse Mattei, idéal pour un Spritz à la française.
La scène Cocktail était très intéressante surtout par son aspect le goût plutôt que l'ivresse qui se manifeste par des recettes ayant par exemple recours à une feuille de shizo pour donner un parfum particulier. On sent une tendance à proposer des assiettes à partager dans les bars.
Il y avait cette année plusieurs maisons de champagne et j'avoue que je n'en ai dégusté qu'un seul, modération oblige, celui de la maison Bardiau, affilié Champagne de vignerons (qui étaient installés dans une salle dédiée), qui m'a séduite par ses très fines bulles, notamment la cuvée parcellaire 100% Chardonnay qui exprime une minéralité dans ce qu'elle a d'élégant.
Omnivore donne l'occasion de mettre en cause des certitudes. J'ai appris que les vins de Bordeaux (qui existent aussi en rosé !) sont très soucieux de l'environnement avec pour objectif en 2025 d'être engagés à 100% dans des démarches certifiantes. Actuellement ces vignobles le sont à 60% et alors que je faisais remarquer qu'une bouteille mentionnait la présence de sulfites on me répondait qu'ils seraient moins dangereux pour la santé que les stabilisateurs et conservateurs que l'on emploie quand on se passe de sulfites. Il y aurait des vignobles qui utiliseraient du vitriol bleu (non dégradable) et qui ont pourtant reçu l'appellation bio, en toute légalité d'ailleurs. Cette question du bio, qui est perçu par les consommateurs comme une garantie de consommer bon, mérite me semble-t-il qu'on s'y penche un jour.
On ne fait pas que des découvertes dans les alcools. L’Apfelsaftschorle, si léger et désaltérant est de loin la boisson sans alcool la plus populaire outre-Rhin. Deux nantaises (qui se sont rencontrées en Suisse) se sont associées sous la marque Les filles de l'Ouest, pour proposer leur version du Schorle, avec trois références pour le moment, la pomme bio, le cassis-pomme et la rhubarbe. un mélange de fruit et d’eau finement pétillante! Un produit 100% naturel, sans sucre ajouté, sans arômes ni conservateurs avec des fruits méticuleusement sélectionnés. Cela nous changera du Perrier-rondelle et surtout de la boisson au cola. 

En matière de jus de fruits était présent (depuis 2014) Alain Millat qui est selon moi, la référence dans le domaine. Chaque produit est la résultante de 3 données qui ne varient pas : une variété, un producteur, une région. Le gourmet peut choisir entre Jus de Raisin blanc Sauvignon, Raisin rosé Cabernet, Raisin rouge Merlot, Raisin Rouge Syrah, Tomate jaune (qui vient de Marmande), Tomate rouge (qui vient de Marmande aussi), Tomate noire de Crimée (qui vient de la Drôme), ou encore Tomate Verte. 

On pouvait déguster les 3 derniers de la gamme qui cette fois sont des recettes de citronnade : citron-gingembre, citron-passion et citron-litchi, bio et sans sucre ajouté, évidemment sans aucun additif, de couleurs naturellement différentes, et dont j'aurai l'occasion de reparler plus en détail.
J'ai beaucoup aimé les infusions de l'Amante verte qui sont des mélanges très aromatiques, comme l'Ardente : basilic, cannelle, sarriette, angélique, monarde.

Et le (petit) miracle Omnivore c'est de pouvoir déguster une glace à la monarde, quelques mètres plus loin, parmi les créations de Terre adélice qui a aussi une glace au persil totalement surprenante. C'est une marque implantée dans l'Ardèche et qui a une forte éthique. Ce n'est pas dans leurs produits qu'on trouvera de l'air pour augmenter le volume.

Le visiteur a l'embarras du choix, entre toutes les variétés de beurre de jean-Yves Bordier (quel souvenir que son beurre au yuzu, créé en 2012!), le dernier chocolat de Valrhona, le Tulakalum, un 73% de cacao, avec des fèves du Belize, des olives de Kalamata de Kalios, dirigée par les frères Chantzios qui sourcent les meilleurs produits du terroir grec pour les chefs et épiceries fines, des olives, des huiles d'olive, mais aussi des fruits à coque, des miels, des gressins et des herbes des montagnes.
Chaque année c'est un régal de goûter le Parmesan Parmigiano Reggiano, cette fois ci le Vache rouge, 40 mois d'affinage. Tout est bon dedans, y compris la croute qu'en Italie on donne aux enfants pour qu'ils se fassent les dents.
Restons en Italie avec les Pasta Garofalo, élaborées à Gragnano, un petit village situé au fond de la baie de Naples où la tradition remonte à la fin du XVI° siècle. Elles bénéficient d'un label IGP garantissant l'emploi de semoule de blé dur et une eau de source locale, présentant un taux de protéines supérieur à 13%, et façonnées à l'aide de moule en bronze. Par exemple les radiatori conçues pour s'enrober facilement dans la salsa.
Il y a aussi beaucoup de producteurs français. Par exemple la famille Boutrais dont les huitres sont dorées parce qu'elles sont exceptionnelles, et non l'inverse et Sturia, qui est un caviar d'Aquitaine, en cours de reconnaissance IGP. Il allie la subtilité et la complexité des saveurs à une longueur en bouche persistante, surtout le caviar vintage qui associe la rondeur et la fermeté des grains à une palette de saveurs harmonieusement fruitées et iodées en bouche.
Omnivore est vraiment un lieu de rencontres entre professionnels et entre journalistes s'intéressant à la gastronomie, même s'il y a de plus en plus, me semble-il aussi de jeunes professionnels, parfois encore étudiants venus humer l'air du temps. Et bien sûr des restaurateurs. J'en ai interviewé plusieurs. Frédérique Triquet, chef du restaurant Poulette m'a dit venir (aussi) pour rencontrer des producteurs du Collège Culinaire de France qui est cité dans l'interview qu'on vient d'entendre était officiellement présent pour la première fois à Omnivore avec des Producteur-Artisans de Qualité renouvelé chaque jour. Le Collège regroupe 1700 restaurants, 150 vignerons, 750 producteurs. Quelques-uns étaient présents sur Omnivore pour une journée. 
J'y ai rencontré la Maison Boutarin (un des 5 producteurs français à faire de l'ail noir, ail éléphant, ail blanc… en millésime compte tenu de l'ensoleillement, une merveille sur une tomate-mozza et une bonne huile, ou une Saint Jacques. Ce produit a tout de même une DLUO de 18 mois et développe un coté réglisse au fil du temps), Elixia (la plus ancienne limonaderie de France), Les Vergers de la Silve (jus et pétillants sans alcool), L’Amante Verte (infusions bio cité un peu plus haut). Il y a eu aussi (mais un jour où je n'y étais pas) Chambelland (pains biologiques au levain naturel, naturellement sans gluten) La Cour d’Orgeres (confitures artisanales) O Ma ! Gourmandises (produits artisanaux corses).

Ce sont tous de très bons produits dont j'avais eu l'occasion de parler sur le blog, et qui appartiennent à notre patrimoine.
J'ai fait, au fil des années beaucoup de belles découvertes dans le domaine des fruits et légumes comme la capucine tubéreuse qui se dégustera crue pour en apprécier le goût piquant et poivré, ou cuite si l’on préfère une saveur douce, le chou kale qui est maintenant banal, et puis la betterave, qui a été employée par kilo il y a quelques années, pour agrémenter les créations des candidats Top chef, la Redchard, qui ne présente pas un grand intérêt gustatif mais qui a pour elle d’être joliment bicolore. On ne la voit plus sur les assiettes, à croire qu'en cuisine aussi il y a des phénomènes de mode.
Je me souviens aussi du citron caviar, qui pousse dans la forêt tropicale australienne, et de son goût très particulier, proche de la bergamote, qui à l'époque était facturé plus de 100€ le kilo. Et puis le baby Kiwi, une variété néozélandaise, cultivée en France, d’une taille équivalente à une tomate cerise, qui n’a pas de noyau et se déguste tel que, avec la peau, rappelant, mais en plus subtil, le parfum des groseilles à maquereau de mon enfance.
S'agissant des fruits et légumes ce sont cette année, apportés par Trans Gourmet, la pomme cannelle, toute noire qui m'a surprise et l'oca du Pérou, rouge brillant.
La plus grande surprise était venue il y a cinq ans des herbes aromatiques de Koppert Cress. Cette entreprise démontre avec brio qu’il n’y a pas que des fleurs en Hollande. Impossible de hiérarchiser mes préférences entre celle qui évoque la carotte et le céleri, celle qui dégage un parfum de citron et d’anis, la borage cress à la saveur combinée d’iode et de concombre, ou encore les feuilles de la majii qui m’ont fait penser à une pomme Granny Smith, mais la feuille d'huitre reste ma préférée.
Je peux vous dire que encore cette année cette société a surpris énormément de visiteurs alors que l'emploi de ces petites feuilles est désormais très démocratisé dans les restaurants.

Il y a dans les allées un côté très international. On entend parler toutes les langues. Des chefs viennent du monde entier. De plus, un pays est chaque année mis à l'honneur. Après la Belgique en 2018, c'est le tour des Pays-Bas (où est d'ailleurs installé Koppert Cress) et ce fut une révélation pour moi que d'apprendre que ce pays compte plus de 100 étoiles au Michelin depuis 10 ans.
Ils ont des vins très surprenants, qu'on ne soupçonnerait pas d'avoir été élevé dans ce territoire si "nordique", notamment un beau Blanc au cépage mystère (non indiqué sur l'étiquette). Dans leur cuisine le poisson et la viande tiennent moins de place que les légumes, lesquels ont une richesse insoupçonnée notamment dans des variétés d'asperges et de chou qui n'existent pas en France et qui surprend par ses fromages. Par contre c'est surtout une cuisine encore familiale qui n'est pas encore sortie du foyer.
Le hareng est peut-être l'ingrédient le plus emblématique de ce pays. Je connaissais les maatjes qui sont de jeunes harengs succulents. J'ai eu l'occasion de goûter des préparations dignes de la haute cuisine en terme de saveur, de présentation et de raffinement.
Sur la scène Artisan j'ai rencontré des charcutiers Néerlandais, Brandt & Levie dont le credo est d'inspirer les gens pour qu'ils mangent mieux que de la très bonne charcuterie. Ils fabriquent des saucissons et des charcuteries d'exception, tous bio, avec une préoccupation de minimiser l'impact sur l'environnement qui est très louable avec une philosophie from nose to tail dans un soucis de développement durable les amenant à produire jusqu'à du savon (mais oui). On consommera dans les années à venir moins de viande, mais de meilleure qualité. Comme leur saucisson Chipotle et cacao que je ne suis pas prête d'oublier. Ils ont aussi olives vertes et anis, truffe, ail et noix de muscade, romarin pétales de rose, et je ne vous dis rien de leur pancetta, des saucisses de foie, des rillettes ... Ce fut une vraie découverte.

En terme de tendance culinaire en terme de plats et de recette, ce n'est peut-être pas à Omnivore qu'il faut se rendre mais à Taste of Paris au Grand Palais. J'ai tout de même relevé que Guillaume Sanchez (encore lui) disait que la fermentation est au coeur de sa cuisine, parce que c'est sain et c'est un exhausteur de goût incroyable.
Déborah Dupont, responsable de la Librairie Gourmande, présente sur le salon, a d'ailleurs mis en avant plusieurs livres sur le sujet et s'est exprimée sur son travail avec les chefs. Vous pouvez elle aussi l'entendre dans l'émission. Et pour ceux qui voudraient se lancer, voici mon expérience en matière de fermentation, à partir du livre que l'on remarque sur la photo ci-dessus.

Parmi les chefs il y a des français, j'en ai cité plusieurs au début de l'article, mais on rencontre aussi des grands noms de la scène internationale. Comme par exemple le Suédois Jacob Holmström, le pâtissier québécois Patrice Demers et la pâtissière mexicaine Sofia Cortina (cheffe de Hotel Carlota, Mexico) qui a piloté une master-class en français, s'il-vous-plait.
La jeune mexicaine utilise, et c'est normal, des produits locaux, entendu mexicains, mais elle a adopté des techniques françaises. Il faut savoir qu'en Amérique latine, la sucrosité est très forte. Est-ce parce qu'on y produit la canne à sucre ? Toujours est-il qu'il faudrait diviser la quantité de sucre par deux. Un stage chez Pierre Hermé a changé sa manière de faire ... et de considérer son pays. Elle dit qu'elle détestait le Mexique, étant aveuglée par les risques d'insécurité. Pierre Hermé m'a fait voyager, en m'envoyant quatre mois à Oaxaca, la capitale de la gastronomie mexicaine. A son retour elle a décidé de donner à ses plats des noms d'Etat ou de fête.

On peut être élégant et subtil sans ajouter beaucoup de choses. Il n'y a pas besoin de colorant au Mexique car les fruits sont naturellement très colorés. Elle travaille bien sur les churros, l'arroz con leche (le riz au lait), les desserts qui appartiennent à l'héritage espagnol mais en raison du diabète et de l'obésité, deux fléaux au Mexique, elle réduit le sucre, allant même jusqu'à créer un dessert sans sucre. Elle nous a fait goûter le mamey (sorte de papaye un peu molle) et incité à respirer l'odeur de son noyau, qui si on le casse, dégage un parfum d'amande amère.

Elle saupoudre de gruau de cacao sur sa tarte de crème brulée de mamey tout en commentant les diapositives qu'elle a préparées. Et attaque son dessert-signature, un vacherin-meringue-sorbet corrosol décliné dans des tonalités de blanc, avant de râper de la lime du Yucatan. Elle peut le décliner avec des cactus d'été, le pitahaya ou fruit du dragon dans un jeu délicat d'acidité.
D'autres chefs m'ont fait réfléchir cette année. Comme par exemple Claire Damon (Des gâteaux et du pain) qui préfère le mot imagination à celui de création et qui ne craint pas de prononcer le mot amertume. Le défaut doit être accepté. il faut partie du produit. C'est à nous de nous adapter. Elle se préoccupe de plus en plus des questions d'intolérance et écoute les préconisations de ses clients, y compris quand ils lui font découvrir des produits. Il faut l'entendre parler de ses inspirations : le littoral au printemps, le pamplemousse rosat, un nocturne de Chopin ... qui ne sont pas du tout "gadget" quand on a ensuite la chance de croquer dans un de ses gâteaux.

Il m'a peut-être manqué de fortes émotions comme celles que j'ai relaté au début de l'émission. Je ne suis pas la seule à le dire, le départ de grands partenaires historiques d'Omnivore se ressent. Je ne citerai que l'absence de la Bourse Badoit, qui sans faire de mauvais jeu de mots apportait de l'effervescence au festival. Beaucoup de jeunes venaient s'y renseigner avant de finaliser leur dossier d'ouverture de restaurant pour se donner le plus de chance pour remporter une belle somme d'argent, 10 000 €, mais surtout un coaching d'un an en cuisine, en gestion et en communication.

Néanmoins les deux jours ont été riches d'échanges et de découvertes, ou de confirmations.

Il y a un leitmotiv que j'ai entendu plusieurs fois et que je tiens à vous donner. Beaucoup de chefs ont tenu à remercier publiquement leur épouse pour son soutien au quotidien. C'était à chaque fois très touchant, et applaudi chaleureusement.

Cette année, le focus était annoncé sur la cuisine responsable, les racines et les territoires d’agriculture et d’élevage et il a bien été respecté. Je me souviens de Claire Damon disant : il faut consommer moins, c'est évident, si on veut que ça dure ... Je n'utilise que l'amande de Provence, ça nous aura couté un point de rentabilité. J'ai supprimé l'attaché de presse.

Le festival a permis aussi de satisfaire la curiosité de ses visiteurs et de partager des expériences. Je ne pouvais pas restituer en un article ce que j'ai fait en deux jours. J'espère que je vous aurai donné l'envie d'y faire un tour l'an prochain. Cela reste un moment très important pour tous les passionnés de cuisine, qu'ils soient d'un coté ou de l'autre des fourneaux.

          Shocking ruling from liberal 9th Circuit Court hands President Trump huge immigration victory      Comment   Translate Page      

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which has traditionally ruled against the Trump administration, handed President Donald Trump a rare immigration victory Friday night.

What are the details?

The appeals court issued a stay against a lower court decision — which came just four days earlier — that blocked the Trump administration from enforcing a policy that forced migrants to wait in Mexico while U.S. authorities processed their asylum requests.

However, the stay was only temporary. The court will consider extending the stay sometime next week, according to the New York Times.

The court gave civil liberty groups until Tuesday to submit arguments for why the policy should be overthrown, while giving the Justice Department until Wednesday to submit arguments for why the policy should remain in place.

What's the background?

On Monday, Federal District Court Judge Richard Seeborg granted an injunction against the Trump administration's policy. Seeborg claimed the policy violated existing immigration law. He also claimed the president did not have the power to enforce the policy.

Seeborg's injunction was set to go into effect Friday, which explains the emergency stay from the 9th Circuit.

In December, the Trump administration rolled out a new policy that forced migrants who entered the U.S. illegally to wait in Mexico while U.S. authorities processed their asylum requests.

The policy sought to end the controversial practice of so-called "catch and release," where non-criminal migrants would essentially be released into the general population while courts decided their asylum requests.

Prior to the removal of the page, Correa lambasted his successor in a series of posts

Facebook has unpublished the page of Ecuador’s former president, Rafael Correa, the social media giant confirmed on Thursday, claiming that the popular leftist leader violated the company’s security policies. 

"...Since 2015, Correa—who lives with his family in Brussels, Belgium—had used the social platform to great effect, using strongly-worded posts, video interviews, and live-streams as a platform amid the Ecuadorean media’s de facto blackout of the former leader, who remains reviled by the center-right former opposition and sections of the country’s left.
Former President Correa minced no words in his assessment of Moreno, denouncing him in an English-language tweet as “the greatest traitor in Ecuadorian and Latin American history … Moreno is a corrupt man, but what he has done is a crime that humanity will never forget.” ...


Trump Fires Off Late Night Tweet – Calls Democrats’ Open Border Policies “TREASONOUS”

President Trump fired off a late night tweet Wednesday, calling the actions taken by Democrats to keep the borders wide open, “TREASONOUS.”

Thank you, President Trump for calling it what it is!
“I think what the Democrats are doing with the Border is TREASONOUS. Their Open Border mindset is putting our Country at risk. Will not let this happen!” Trump said in a tweet.

There is a huge crisis at the US-Mexico border with record number of illegal aliens flooding into the United States.
Asylum seekers are being released into communities because of dangerous “catch and release” policies and Congress refuses to act.
No doubt these caravans of illegals are being funded by open border zealots looking to destroy US sovereignty.
Multiple caravans full of military-aged Central Americans and other migrants from all over the world are currently marching to the US border where they will seek asylum then be released into the US.

Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch said that in his sector alone, border agents have captured people trying to enter the country illegally from more than 50 different countries, including Turkey, China, Bangladesh, Egypt and Romania. “People are traveling across hemispheres to attempt to illegally enter the U.S., using the same pathways as the Central Americans,” he told lawmakers.
“Karisch noted that Border Patrol has apprehended more families illegally crossing the border in the first five months of fiscal 2019 than during all of fiscal 2018,” Fox News reported. “Customs and Border Protection (CBP) apprehended more than 76,000 migrants across the border in February and said it was on track to apprehend more than 100,000 in March. In the Rio Grande Valley alone, Karisch said that at current pace, they would have more than 260,000 apprehensions in his sector by the end of fiscal 2019. There were 162,000 in RGV last year. He also said that his agents apprehend, on average, 1,000 people a day.”
President Trump declared a national emergency in February to secure funding for a border wall, however, the insanely dangerous asylum laws are causing the biggest surge of illegal aliens flooding over the border.
Despite nearly 100,000 illegal invaders being apprehended by border patrol in the month of March alone, Democrats continue to give comfort and aid to the invaders by refusing to stop the border surge.
Judge Richard Seeborg on Monday blocked President Trump’s policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait their turn for an immigration judge to hear their cases.
Judge Seeborg, an Obama appointee in San Francisco, granted a request by a civil liberties group that sued the Trump Administration on behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America.
Trump is right — what the Democrats are doing with the border is treasonous.

Dear Savannah, 

You can’t make this up.
Yesterday I went to the Attorney General’s Office in New Hampshire to give them proof of voter fraud.  An admission from an Atkinson man who voted twice in the same election in two different states.

You can view the video HERE.
How did they respond?
They handed me and my executive producer a grand jury subpoena.  
Did the summons mention anything about voter fraud or double voting?  Of course not. 
We are now ordered to appear before a grand jury in Hillsborough County, New Hampshire for an investigation.

Our journalists found a man who admitted to double voting.  Breaking the law!
Now, the response of the AG’s office isn’t to investigate the double voter, but instead our operations.
I will not budge.  I will not capitulate.  And I will not cave to this political pressure.
I will keep releasing voter fraud videos in New Hampshire and I will not be not be intimidated by the misguided use of the grand jury process to try and prevent our lawful investigative journalism.
I'm not asking for your money, I'm asking for your help.
Please help me put pressure on the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office to investigate this voter fraud case right now.  
Please call their investigator Robert J. Sullivan at:603-271-1182
Or you can email him
Tell him the following:
Please investigate Robert A. Bell for admitting to voting twice.  Why did you subpoena James O'Keefe, the journalist, instead of subpoenaing the person who voted twice? 
Be Brave!
James O’Keefe



Chinese cops send people to ‘concentration camps’ if they’re found with Facebook on phones during random stop and searches

Western social media is banned in China’s Xinjiang region where police are accused of seizing phones and installing spyware

"...Offenders are said to be sent to "re-education" camps to clamp down on social media use.
Mandatory spyware is downloaded onto citizen’s phones to restrict what citizens can access.
And police check mobiles for evidence of foreign social media apps like Twitter or WhatsApp.
Xinjiang is home to 11 million Uighurs - one of China’s fifty-five ethnic minorities who have their own language and mainly practice Islam.
The Chinese government is accused of routinely targeting citizens of the region with “counter-terror” measures and brutal policing.
Kasim, who claims to be a Xinjiang native, shared what he says are secretly taken pictures inside the secretive region, which the Chinese government restricts access to by outsiders.
He says he used special software to bypass the government's censors and post the images on Twitter.
And he said living in China is “like Nazi Germany” and likened the Chinese Communist Party to ISIS..."


Your car is watching you. Who owns the data?

Computers on wheels raise thorny questions about data privacy

If you’re driving a late model car or truck, chances are that the vehicle is mostly computers on wheels, collecting and wirelessly transmitting vast quantities of data to the car manufacturer not just on vehicle performance but personal information, too, such as your weight, the restaurants you visit, your music tastes and places you go.
A car can generate about 25 gigabytes of data every hour and as much as 4,000 gigabytes a day, according to some estimates. The data trove in the hands of car makers could be worth as much as $750 billion by 2030, the consulting firm McKinsey has estimated. But consumer groups, aftermarket repair shops and privacy advocates say the data belongs to the car’s owners and the information should be subject to data privacy laws.
Yet Congress has yet to pass comprehensive federal data privacy legislation. And although Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi, chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, has said he would like to see federal privacy legislation passed by the end of the year, it is unclear if that goal can be met.
Financial technology is changing how we do business, and regulators are trying to catch up

Plant-Based Diets Are Associated With Lower Adiposity Levels Among Hispanic/Latino Adults in the Adventist Multi-Ethnic Nutrition (AMEN) Study

  • 6Health Policy and Management, School of Public Health, UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, Los Angeles, CA, United States

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.


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.
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.

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.

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).

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.

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).

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.

          It's Hard Staying Focused On Issues In The Midst Of Trump's 10-Ring Circus-- But Bernie Is Staying On Message       Comment   Translate Page      

How does Trump get people to not think about his disastrous economic policies, built on an entirely wasteful deficit that has nearly doubled to a trillion dollars since he occupied the White House? His pathetic circus routine has done the trick in a general sort of way. No one seems to be paying attention, for example, to his trade agenda with new outages come out every day, often more than one a day.

Yesterday, for example, Jake Tapper broke the news that a senior White House source-- probably Kushner-in-law or someone trying to get Kushner-in-law in trouble-- leaked the news that Trump told the Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan that he would grant him a pardon if he were sent to jail for having border agents illegally block asylum seekers from entering the U.S. Another Hair on Fire Friday moment! (And, by the way, since then Trump named McAleenan, acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.)

Active Shooter by Nancy Ohanian

Doing his best to leave Trump's constant, insane and attention-grabbing provocations to the media, Bernie keeps focusing on his core issues of income inequality and a rigged system. Yesterday he followed up on his trade agenda by releasing the video below, itself an update of the video above from last year. Bernie's key points about Trump's soggy trade deal with Mexico and Canada-- currently in no man's land in Congress where it has virtually no chance of being ratified-- are that:
the deal would continue to ship U.S. jobs to Mexico because Mexico's workers make as little as two dollars an hour, which the deal doesn't address
the deal doesn't protect the enironment
the deal is a give-away to pharmaceuticals and other big corporate special interests
Last November Bernie told his Vermont constituents exactly why he opposes Trump's deal too replace the same NAFTA that Bernie has always opposed and feels needs to be replaced.
As someone who not only voted against NAFTA, but walked on the picket lines against it, there is no question that this unfettered trade deal needs to be fundamentally rewritten. In my view, a re-negotiated NAFTA must stop the outsourcing of U.S. jobs, end the destructive race to the bottom, protect the environment, and lower the outrageously high price of prescription drugs. Clearly, Trump’s NAFTA 2.0 does not meet these standards and I will strongly oppose it in its current form. Unless strong enforcement mechanisms are written into the text of this agreement, corporations will continue to ship U.S. jobs to Mexico where workers are paid as little as $2 an hour.

Further, this deal includes some outrageous giveaways to the fossil fuel industry and big pharmaceutical companies that will harm the environment and increase prices for life-saving prescription drugs. Before this deal is sent to Congress for a vote it must include strong enforcement mechanisms to increase jobs and wages and all of the riders that benefit big fossil fuel polluters and pharmaceutical companies must be taken out of it. Trade is a good thing-- but it has got to be fair.

          La historia de Frida Kahlo en la que hay tantas tragedias que serían suficientes para varias vidas      Comment   Translate Page      

Es imposible confundir las pinturas singulares de la artista mexicana Frida Kahlo con las obras de otros artistas. En muchos sentidos, son autobiográficas, ya que, según la propia artista: “Pinto autorretratos porque estoy mucho tiempo sola. Me pinto a mí misma, porque soy a quien mejor conozco”. Sin embargo, la atención de muchas personas fue atraída no solo por las pinturas de Frida, sino también por su vida llena de dolor y amor infinitos, desesperación profunda y muy poca esperanza. Estudiamos cuidadosamente la vida y la carrera de esta mujer increíblemente fuerte y queremos compartir contigo algunos hechos de su vida. Desde el momento de su nacimiento, la vida de Frida Kahlo puede considerarse un completo misterio. Nació en 1907, aunque en su documento de identidad, la arista, ya siendo adulta, cambió el año de nacimiento a 1910, ya que quería participar en la  Revolución mexicana que comenzó en 1910 y duró hasta el año 1920.

Su padre también construyó un dispositivo único para que la chica pudiera pintar acostada, además colocó un espejo grande directamente sobre su hija. La primera obra de la artista después de la tragedia fue el boceto a lápizAccidente. Frida confesó más de una vez que la pintura le dio fuerza, fue gracias a ella y a sus familiares que se recuperó.

Frida conoció a Diego Rivera unos años después del accidente. La artista principiante decidió mostrarle sus obras, las cuales el famoso pintor valoró muy positivamente. Entre ellos corrió una chispa. Los enamorados celebraron su boda en 1929. Ella tenía 22 años, él tenía 43, era un hombre poco atractivo, bastante corpulento, pero muy encantador. La pareja fue apodada “el elefante y la paloma”. Diego nunca fue un marido muy fiel, los 2 matrimonios anteriores del artista habían terminado debido a sus numerosas traiciones. La alianza actual no fue la excepción. Frida sabía de los asuntos amorosos de su cónyuge, pero no le decía ni una palabra. Aparentemente para vengarse de su esposo, tuvo una aventura con el revolucionario ruso en exilio León Trotski, quien encontró refugio en su hogar. Según algunos rumores, Frida mantuvo relación amorosa con el poeta ruso Vladímir Mayakovski y la cantante mexicana Chavela Vargas. View this post on Instagram "El diablo es rubio.

Entonces, la artista desbordó todas sus preocupaciones en los lienzos. Su obra más emblemática sobre este tema que tanto le dolió fue el  Henry Ford Hospital. Después de 10 años de matrimonio, se enteró de la traición de su esposo con su hermana Cristina y solicitó el divorcio. Este evento contribuyó a la creación de la pintura Unos cuantos piquetitos. Luego se cortó su lujoso cabello largo y comenzó a vestirse con trajes de pantalón. Después de la dolorosa ruptura con su esposo, Frida comenzó a retratarse rodeada de animales. Entre sus adorables mascotas había perros, monos, loros y palomas. En 1940, la artista fue ingresada al hospital por presentar graves problemas de salud. Diego vino de inmediato a ver a su amada y nuevamente le hizo la propuesta de matrimonio, que fue aceptada por la mujer sin pensarlo dos veces.

Se sometió a varias operaciones importantes que apenas lograron mejorar su condición. En 1953, debido a la gangrena, los médicos tuvieron que amputarle la pierna. En el mismo año fue inaugurada su exposición personal en México, donde la artista fue llevada directamente en la cama. Anticipándose a su muerte, la artista escribió en su diario: “Espero que la partida sea exitosa y que no vuelva más”. La última obra de Frida Kahlo fue el cuadro inspirador y optimista Viva la vida. La artista falleció en julio de 1954 por neumonía. En 1955, en la casa donde vivía Frida, se inauguró el museo que atrajo a numerosos admiradores de su arte. El patrimonio artístico de la pintora mexicana cuenta con más de 150 obras. Frida les dio gran importancia a sus autorretratos, muchos de los cuales describen mejor que cualquier palabra su vida que era tan complicada y llena de constante dolor. Como, por ejemplo, la imagen de culto La columna rota, que, por cierto, inspiró a Jean-Paul Gautier a crear el vestuario para el personaje de Mila Jovovich en  El quinto elemento. Se han producido muchas películas sobre ella, una de las más destacadas es Frida, matices de una pasión protagonizada por Salma Hayek; también se han escrito libros e incluso se le dedica música. La personalidad multilateral de esta artista no deja indiferente a nadie, incluso en nuestros días.

          La nueva generación provida es la “gran rebeldía” de este siglo      Comment   Translate Page      
BUENOS AIRES, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- La activista provida argentina Ana Belén Mármora afirmó que en medio una avanzada abortista que ha ganado espacios a nivel mediático y político, se ha gestado “la gran rebeldía de este nuevo siglo: la nueva generación provida”.

La directora ejecutiva de la agrupación Frente Joven en Argentina dedicó una columna de opinión para referirse al desafío de “ser jóvenes provida” en una sociedad donde los medios, las redes sociales, las universidades y otros actores sociales “se embanderan detrás de un pañuelo verde”.

“La propuesta del mundo seduce especialmente a la juventud y nos ofrece ser parte de la cultura del descarte que irrumpe en nuestras vidas para cegarnos con modas pasajeras y placeres efímeros bañados de un individualismo extremo y de una falta de compromiso que nos vuelve funcionales a los intereses de esa agenda”, explicó.

Advirtió incluso que este año “ha logrado especialmente que muchos de nosotros se agruparan bajo el canto de ‘aborto legal’, incluso sin siquiera saber lo que conlleva esa práctica”.

“Nos usan. Lo hacen del modo más maquiavélico: nos adoctrinan en el aula, nos mienten en las redes sociales y hasta en la serie que miramos; nos venden un paquete de ‘derechos’ que conquistar y buscan hacernos olvidar de lo más preciado: el valor de la vida”, dijo Mármora.

Pese a este complejo escenario, la activista destacó que “hemos gestado y hecho nacer una nueva generación que con una mirada crítica a esos oscuros propósitos se permite ir contra la corriente y es la gran rebeldía de este nuevo siglo: la nueva generación provida”.

Aseguró que “hemos asumido el desafío de llenar de color, canto y frescura estas nuevas batallas que nos mantienen en velo, que nos invitan a involucrarnos con la maternidad vulnerable, y que nos han dado un baño de realidad: necesitamos defender la vida de las mujeres y los niños por nacer, porque todas las vidas valen”.

Todos estos esfuerzos resultaron en la gran “ola celeste que crece” en cada rincón de Argentina y donde “llevamos nuestras convicciones a todos esos ámbitos que buscan confundirnos”.

“Nos inquietamos. No nos callamos. No nos da lo mismo. Nos agrupamos. Nos formamos. Movilizamos las calles y damos testimonio vivo en los medios de comunicación. Nos comprometemos”, sostuvo Mármora.

Con esta nueva generación provida, la activista del Frente Joven aseguró que “los jóvenes ya no estamos dormidos. Somos el pilar de esta nueva gesta. Juntos descubrimos que la patria nos llamaba, que necesitaba a hombres y mujeres que no tuvieran miedo de cuidar la vida. Sabemos que hay que actuar”.

“Tenemos la convicción profunda de que nuestro compromiso es con las futuras generaciones. Y por eso nacimos con fuerza. Y por eso, somos esperanza”, expresó.

Para esta joven, la clave para ser joven y provida en estos tiempo es que “no tengan miedo” y responder a la invitación de San Juan Pablo II a ser “los centinelas del mañana”.

“Luchemos por un mundo más humano, donde ninguna vida sea descartada, donde el vientre de una mujer sea siempre el lugar más seguro para un niño por nacer”, concluyó la Mármora.

          3 medios para influir en defensa de la vida y la familia [VIDEO]      Comment   Translate Page      
Santiago, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- “Somos responsables de nuestro mundo”, es el mensaje del abogado español Benigno Blanco Rodríguez, miembro del directorio del Foro de la Familia de España y de la Fundación Red Madre.

Para Blanco “la actitud de esperar todo del poder, para lo bueno o para lo malo, es una irresponsabilidad. El poder es muy importante, pero la capacidad que tenemos de influir en los que están a nuestro alrededor es tan importante como ser presidente de gobierno”.

En su visita a Chile para dar una serie de conferencias sobre la vida y la familia, el abogado compartió con ACI Prensa tres medios con los que un ciudadano común puede influir a favor de la familia y la vida en la sociedad:

1. La palabra. El abogado explicó que “cada vez que hablamos entramos en el interior de la cabeza y el corazón de quien nos escucha”.

En ese sentido, “hay que usar ese poder de hablar para hablar bien de las cosas buenas: de la vida, de la familia, de la sexualidad, de la lealtad a los propios amores, porque cuando hablamos bien de las cosas buenas colocamos el bien en el interior de los demás”.

Para esto, es importante “formarnos para poder dar una razón razonada de nuestras convicciones en las conversaciones ordinarias de la vida donde estos temas salen”.

2. Testimonio. Blanco sostuvo que “vemos y nos mira mucha gente” y “un rostro alegre genera alegría y un rostro triste genera tristeza”.

“Esa posibilidad que tenemos de transmitir alegría, de mirar a los ojos, de darnos cuenta de los estados de ánimo de la gente que nos rodea para interesarnos por ellos, es un poder de influencia impresionante”, explicó.

3. Asociarse. El tercer medio para influir según este abogado es asociarse con otros, ya que en las sociedades plurales en que vivimos “colaborando, cada uno aportando lo que puede, logramos ser mucho más eficaces”.

“Cada uno según su tiempo disponible, sus capacidades, sus actitudes, debe buscar dónde pueden aportar algo. Unos estarán en ONG providas, otros en ayuda a familias, otros en asociaciones de padres en los colegios, otros echarán una mano en Cáritas. Y así nos vamos haciendo responsables de la sociedad en que vivimos, de mejorarla”, expresó.

Finalmente, como una sugerencia a agregar, Blanco sugirió la participación política. “No digo que todo el mundo debe ser diputado, pero hay que votar, hay que influir, hay que opinar, hay que decir”, indicó.

Agregó que “hoy día gracias a la red tenemos la capacidad de hacer llegar nuestras opiniones sin costo a todo el mundo. Hay que utilizar eso porque son medios también para defender la verdad, los derechos humanos, etc.”.

          Arzobispo advierte del peligro para la libertad y la dignidad sin un Occidente cristiano      Comment   Translate Page      
Filadelfia, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- El Arzobispo de Filadelfia (Estados Unidos), Mons. Charles Chaput, advirtió que la antigua cultura cristiana de Occidente ha olvidado sus raíces, y que los principios básicos de la dignidad humana y la libertad están ahora en peligro.

“Los verdaderos enemigos de la libertad humana, la grandeza, la imaginación, el arte, la esperanza, la cultura y la conciencia son los que atacan las creencias religiosas, no los creyentes. La caída de Occidente se debe al olvido de Dios”, dijo el Prelado en una reunión con sacerdotes, seminaristas y laicos el viernes 12 de abril, en el Seminario del Corazón Inmaculado de María en Winona, Minnesota.

Además, dijo que se debe entender que, "cada vez más, los principios morales principales de la Declaración de Independencia, cosas sobre las que los Fundadores podrían decir: ‘consideramos que estas verdades son evidentes’, no son en absoluto evidentes ni permanentes para muchos de nuestros líderes intelectuales y políticos”.

“Los derechos naturales que la mayoría de nosotros los estadounidenses damos por sentado no significan nada si no existe una naturaleza humana permanente, una naturaleza que muchos de los que buscan gobernarnos, o que ya nos gobiernan,rechazan. Y eso tiene consecuencias”, añadió.

El Arzobispo notó una creciente hostilidad pública hacia los valores de la ley natural y dijo que los “inquisidores seculares” buscan imponer una nueva ortodoxia que rechaza las verdades humanas básicas.

“El sexo es su arma de elección, una especie de navaja suiza de confusión de género, licencia sexual y feroz moralización contra cualquier cosa que insinúe la moral cristiana clásica, la pureza, la modestia, la fertilidad y la fidelidad de por vida basada en la complementariedad sexual de mujeres y hombres”, denunció Mons. Chaput.

Mons. Chaput lamentó que la sociedad estadounidense rechace cada vez más la fe en Dios, que una vez fue su rasgo distintivo, y llamó a la fe la fuente perdida de “decencia y vitalidad”.

“La incredulidad, ya sea deliberada e ideológica, perezosa y pragmática, es la religión del estado del mundo moderno. El fruto de esa ortodoxia es el hambre y la destrucción del espíritu humano, y una sociedad sin un propósito superior”.

“Lo que alguna vez fue nuestra nación, hoy corre el riesgo de convertirse cada vez más en una nueva Roma con todos los defectos inhumanos que eso implica”, dijo.

El Arzobispo explicó que los cristianos no están llamados a ser testigos pasivos de los tiempos, sino que cada persona es el sujeto y el autor de su lugar en la historia.

Los cristianos, agregó, tienen el deber de rehacer la sociedad a la imagen de Cristo al oponerse firmemente a la cultura prevaleciente, recordando que las acciones de cada persona tienen consecuencias.

“En la medida en que tratamos de encajar en una cultura que es cada vez más hostil a lo que los católicos siempre han creído, que es lo que hemos estado haciendo durante décadas, repudiamos con nuestras acciones lo que afirmamos que consideramos sagrado con nuestras palabras. Ninguna persona, ni ninguna Iglesia, puede sobrevivir por mucho tiempo con lealtades divididas”, advirtió.

Mons. Chaput también dijo a la audiencia que los católicos tenían el deber de “servir a la verdad diciendo la verdad de la manera más alegre y persuasiva posible”.

“Nuestra fe cambió el curso de la historia y dio sentido a toda una civilización. Y en el Cristo resucitado, Dios nos está llamando ahora mismo, comenzando con los que estamos aquí esta noche, a hacer lo mismo”.

El Prelado dijo finalmente que fue a través de la fe en Dios que la sociedad apreciaba la dignidad de la naturaleza humana y la libertad del alma humana. 

“El problema central en la construcción de una cultura cristiana es nuestra falta de fe y la cobardía que produce. Necesitamos admitir esto. Y luego debemos someternos a un camino de arrepentimiento y cambio, y al testimonio desinteresado de los demás”, concluyó el Arzobispo de Filadelfia

          Iglesia en México tendrá presencia en dispositivos electrónicos de Amazon      Comment   Translate Page      
Ciudad de México, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- La Conferencia del Episcopado Mexicano (CEM) entabló una alianza con Amazon México para desarrollar tres “skills” o “habilidades” de evangelización que estarán certificadas y cargadas en el dispositivo Alexa, un asistente de voz virtual y automatizado.

La tecnología de Amazon permite responder preguntas, reproducir música, reproducir podcasts y audiolibros, proveer información de todo tipo, entre otras funciones.

“La Conferencia del Episcopado Mexicano Conferencia del Episcopado Mexicano en sintonía con el Papa Francisco y atendiendo a las voces de jóvenes que viven en los nuevos ambientes digitales en donde muchas ocasiones se encuentran en territorios de soledad, manipulación, explotación y violencia, es necesario hacer presencia con el mensaje de nuestro Señor Jesucristo y salir al encuentro a través de las nuevas plataformas”, informa el comunicado emitido el viernes 12 de abril.

Los obispos precisan que estas plataformas deben “ser un espacio para los jóvenes de diálogo, reflexión, oración, así como de acceso a la información y formación de su fe”.

Entre los “skills” se puede encontrar.

1. Evangelio del Día

Es un servicio donde escuchar el Evangelio y una reflexión elaborada por un obispo de la CEM. 

“Mediante el ‘Evangelio del Día’ queremos ayudar a la explicación y meditación de la lectura diaria de la Misa, para tener una referencia constante de cómo vivir nuestra fe a través de sus enseñanzas”, indican los obispos.

2. Red Católica

A través de esta se puede encontrar información actualizada de las actividades del Papa Francisco, del Vaticano y de la Iglesia en Latinoamérica y México.

3. El Santo Rosario

“Es una guía perfecta de acompañamiento para la reflexión y la meditación del rezo del Rosario. Con ella se mantiene una unión espiritual con Jesús a través del diálogo con la Virgen María”, precisa la CEM.

          Este es el verdadero sentido de las palmas de Domingo de Ramos      Comment   Translate Page      
REDACCIÓN CENTRAL, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- Este domingo millones de católicos acudirán a las iglesias para iniciar la Semana Santa con el Domingo de Ramos y recordar así la entrada triunfal de Jesús en Jerusalén cuando fue recibido por sus discípulos y la población con palmas y ramos de olivo.

No obstante, ¿cuál es el verdadero sentido de estas palmas una vez bendecidas?

Luego de ser bendecidas, muchos fieles suelen colocarlas en algún lugar privilegiado del hogar y las utilizan como un sacramental, es decir, como “signos sagrados con los que, imitando de alguna manera a los sacramentos, se expresan efectos, sobre todo espirituales, obtenidos por la intercesión de la Iglesia” (CIC 1667).

A pesar de esta precisión, son muchas las personas que acostumbran colocar las palmas benditas detrás de la puerta "como amuletos, con fines curativos o para mantener alejados a los malos espíritus o a los rateros, lo cual es una superstición”, advirtió el Sistema Informativo de la Arquidiócesis de México (SIAME).

Esta creencia –según el SIAME– es errónea debido a que “el verdadero sentido de las palmas en nuestro hogar es tener presente que Jesús es nuestro rey y que debemos siempre darle la bienvenida en nuestro hogar”.

Una vez termine la Semana Santa, se sugiere llevarlas “a la iglesia para que sean quemadas y emplear su ceniza precisamente en el ‘Miércoles de Ceniza’, principio de la próxima Cuaresma”, concluye el SIAME.

Se estima que existen 2600 especies de palmas, pero la planta que produce las hojas que se usan el Domingo de Ramos solo puede sobrevivir en climas tropicales o subtropicales.

En los lugares donde no se pueden encontrar palmas o están en peligro de extinción, como es el caso de Colombia o Ecuador con las “palmas de cera”, se pueden utilizar ramas de olivo, saúco, abeto o de otros árboles.

En el "Caeremoniale Episcoporum", libro que contiene los ritos y ceremonias latinas de la Iglesia Católica, se sugiere que en estos casos, al menos se le adjunten a las ramas de olivo flores o cruces hechas de palma.

          Piden declarar en emergencia educación en Perú debido a textos con ideología de género      Comment   Translate Page      
Lima, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- El congresista de la República, Juan Carlos Gonzales, hizo un llamado al presidente de Perú, Martín Vizcarra, a declarar en emergencia la educación nacional tras el escándalo de los textos escolares vinculados a la ideología de género con contenido sexual inapropiado.

Gonzáles, responsable del grupo de trabajo de la Comisión de Educación del Congreso que está revisando los textos, realizó este pedido tras denunciar el viernes 12 abril, otro texto escolar con material inapropiado.


#Atención 🔴
Deseamos mostrar links en los textos escolares impresos por el @MineduPeru, donde enseña a las niñas de tercer año de secundaria sobre la masturbación

— Juan Carlos Gonzales (@JCGonzalesA) 12 de abril de 2019


Esta vez encontró en el libro “Desarrollo Personal, Ciudadanía y Cívica” para alumnos de tercero de secundaria, tres enlaces a sitios web sobre masturbación femenina. Asimismo, en la bibliografía del mismo texto, señaló que hay un enlace a un video que ilustra diversos “objetos sexuales” para llevar a cabo la práctica sexual.

“Hemos planteado la reforma total y declaración de emergencia de la educación peruana. Hemos planteado reorganización total del Consejo Nacional de Educación. Reforma integral de la SUNEDU (Superintendencia Nacional de Educación Superior Universitaria) y también la educación técnico-productiva”, dijo el congresista Gonzáles en entrevista con ACI Prensa el 12 de abril.

El parlamentario señaló que el tema de la sexualidad debería abarcarse “en forma gradual” y con “ciertos temas” acordes a la preadolescencia. Sin embargo, dijo que es inadmisible instruir sobre poses “sexuales”, técnicas para practicar un aborto cuando éste es considerado un delito en el país u otros.

Sobre el mensaje a la Nación del presidente Vizcarra del jueves 11 de abril para abordar temas de coyuntura nacional, de los cuales dedicó poco más de 20 segundos al escándalo de los textos escolares, Gonzáles lamentó que no haya sido “concreto”.

“Ningún Gobierno le ha dado énfasis a lo que significa la familia. A enseñar a nuestros hijos el respeto, valores, amor a la patria”, lamentó.

En un videomensaje a través de su cuenta de Twitter, Gonzáles dijo que para el 2019 el Perú tiene un presupuesto de 14 814 millones de soles, es decir, el 8.3% del presupuesto total.


#Emergencia 🚨
Hago un llamado al Presidente de la República @MartinVizcarraC a la declaratoria de emergencia y reforma del sistema educativo nacional que incluye el @MineduPeru, la @SuneduPeru y el Consejo Nacional de la Educación @cneperu.

— Juan Carlos Gonzales (@JCGonzalesA) 12 de abril de 2019


“Sin embargo, en los últimos 20 años hemos visto que en las políticas públicas no ha creado el valor público que los peruanos esperamos, tenemos una bajísima comprensión lectora y no tenemos los resultados esperados en ciencias ni letras”, denunció.

“Hago un llamado a los maestros, sociedad, empresa privada, políticos y al Estado a unirnos para mejorar sustancialmente la educación en Perú, sino vamos a seguir totalmente atrasados. Eso hay que hacerlo ya aprovechando la crisis”, instó el parlamentario.  

          El Papa pide a los jóvenes que se liberen de la adicción al celular      Comment   Translate Page      
VATICANO, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- El Papa Francisco pidió a los jóvenes que se liberen de la adicción al celular. “Liberaos de la adicción al celular, por favor. Seguramente habéis oído hablar del drama de las adicciones. Esta es muy sutil”, advirtió el Santo Padre.

El Pontífice hizo estas declaraciones durante la audiencia que concedió este sábado 13 de abril en el Vaticano a os alumnos de la Escuela Ennio Quirino Visconti, célebre institución educativa heredera del Colegio Romano.

En su discurso, Francisco aclaró que “el celular es una gran ayuda, es un gran progreso; hay que usarlo, es bueno que todos sepan cómo usarlo. Pero cuando te conviertes en un esclavo del teléfono, pierdes tu libertad”.

“El celular es para la comunicación: es muy bueno comunicar entre nosotros”, pero también advirtió que puede convertirse en una droga.

El Papa explicó lo que, desde su punto de vista, es la escuela. Señaló que “la escuela es un bien de todos y debe seguir siendo una fragua en la que se educa a la inclusión, al respeto por la diferencia, a la colaboración”.

En ese sentido, les animó a no tener miedo de las diferencias, pues “el diálogo entre culturas diferentes, entre las personas diferentes enriquece a un país, enriquece a la patria y nos hace avanzar en el respeto recíproco, nos hace ir adelante mirando hacia una tierra para todos, no solamente para algunos”.

El diálogo entre culturas, continuó el Pontífice, “es un laboratorio que anticipa lo que la comunidad debería ser en el futuro. Y aquí es donde la experiencia religiosa juega un papel importante, en el que todo lo que es auténticamente humano entra”.

En ese compromiso con la fraternidad entre culturas, la Iglesia promueve “el valor universal de la fraternidad que se basa en la libertad, en la búsqueda honesta de la verdad, en la promoción de la justicia y la solidaridad, especialmente hacia las personas más débiles”.

“Cuando no hay libertad no hay educación, no hay futuro. Cuando no hay una búsqueda honesta de la verdad, sino una verdad impuesta que te quita la capacidad de buscar la verdad, no hay futuro: te anula como persona”. 

Por otro lado, “cuando no hay promoción de la justicia, ciertamente se acaba en un país egoísta y pusilánime que solo funciona para unos pocos. Sin la atención y la búsqueda de estos valores no puede haber una verdadera coexistencia pacífica Cuando hay injusticias, empiezan a crecer el odio, el enfrentamiento y se termina como todos sabemos”.

En su discurso, el Papa también reflexionó sobre el problema del acoso escolar, y animó a “luchar contra esa agresividad que es verdaderamente una semilla de guerra”.

Ciudad de México, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- El Obispo de Apatzingán, Mons. Cristóbal Ascencio García, hizo un “llamado urgente” a las autoridades del estado mexicano de Michoacán para frenar la situación de violencia causada por el narcotráfico, que hace unas semanas dejó una iglesia saqueada y perforada por balas.

El 19 de marzo la parroquia de San José Obrero, en el poblado de San José de Chila (Apatzingán), se vio en el centro de la lucha de poder entre los grupos de narcotraficantes conocidos como “Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación” y los “Caballeros Templarios”.

 “Hago un llamado urgente, especialmente a las autoridades, que tienen como tarea primordial procurar las condiciones de seguridad, a poner todo el empeño y los medios necesarios para que se vayan dando las condiciones de seguridad necesarias, donde estos acontecimientos no se repitan más, y que nos puedan llevar a vivir en la paz que tanto deseamos”, dijo Mons. Ascencio en un comunicado emitido el 9 de abril.

El Prelado indicó que está en la obligación de “levantar la voz para denunciar esta realidad”, porque “lastima a la sociedad, las familias y a cada persona en las raíces más profundas de su dignidad de hijos de Dios y hermanos”.

Refiriéndose a los sucesos de violencia en la parroquia de San José de Chila, lamentó que “la violencia no haya parado” y que continúen “los enfrentamientos en diferentes comunidades, causando pánico y haciendo que muchos de los habitantes se conviertan en desplazados”.

“Algunas de estas pequeñas comunidades se han quedado prácticamente sin familias, dentro de un mismo municipio las personas no pueden ir de una comunidad a otra, hay robo de vehículos con violencia, asesinatos, amenazas y hasta quema de viviendas”, denunció.

Por ese motivo, el Obispo de Apatzingán cree que “estos delitos y pecados que claman al cielo y no son escuchados con frecuencia por quienes deberían procurar seguridad, deben ser denunciados”.

Asimismo, toma de ejemplo al profeta Isaías, quien le habló al pueblo “para concientizarlo de las situaciones que estaban viviendo”, peor que eran “provocadas en buena medida, por alejarse de los mandamientos divinos”.

Sostuvo que la situación actual “es un llamado de parte de Dios a que cada uno asuma su responsabilidad, como ciudadano, pero, sobre todo, a quienes son responsables de cuidar la seguridad de la comunidad”.

Finalmente, Mons. Ascencio invitó para últimos días de Cuaresma “a la conversión, a la transformación de nuestra vida y de nuestra manera de vivir en comunidad, en sociedad”.

“Dejémonos reconciliar por el amor de Dios y pidamos por aquellos que siguen provocando violencia y muerte. Hago votos, para que cada uno, en el ámbito de su competencia, hagamos todo lo necesario para contribuir al bien común de nuestra sociedad”.

“Agradecido por su atención a esta denuncia, pido a Cristo, príncipe de la paz, que pronto llegue a ser una realidad, para nuestro pueblo, la paz y seguridad que tanto deseamos”, concluyó.

          Papa Francisco nombra dos nuevos Obispos para Perú      Comment   Translate Page      
Vaticano, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- Este sábado 13 de abril el Papa Francisco aceptó la renuncia del Obispo Auxiliar de Lima (Perú), Mons. Adriano Tomasi, y nombró dos nuevos obispos auxiliares para la Arquidiócesis.

Se trata del P. Ricardo Augusto Rodríguez Álvarez, hasta ahora párroco de Santa María de Nazaret, y el P. Guillermo Teodoro Elías Millares, hasta ahora párroco de El Señor de la Paz.

El P. Ricardo Augusto Rodríguez Álvarez nació en 1962 en Lima y fue ordenado sacerdote en 1987. Después de sus estudios de Filosofía y Teología se especializó en Pastoral Juvenil en Santiago (Chile) y Bogotá (Colombia). En su ministerio sacerdotal fue vicario parroquial y párroco en diversas iglesias de la arquidiócesis.

El P. Guillermo Teodoro Elías Millares nació en 1953 en Lima y fue ordenado sacerdote en 1981. Después de sus estudios de Filosofía y Teología se especializó en Teología del Matrimonio y de la Familia en el Pontificio Instituto San Juan Pablo de Valencia (España). En su ministerio sacerdotal ha sido, entre otros, vicario parroquial y párroco en la arquidiócesis de Lima y en la diócesis peruana de Carabayllo, así como en Alicante (España).

          El Papa destaca el acto de generosidad que supone la donación de órganos      Comment   Translate Page      
VATICANO, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- Ante la cultura y las amenazas contra la vida que se producen casi a diario, como el caso del aborto y la eutanasia, el Papa Francisco destacó la solidaridad y el acto de generosidad que supone la donación de órganos, que ayuda a entender “que la vida es algo sagrado”.

“De nuestra misma muerte y de nuestro don, pueden brotar la vida y la salud de otros, enfermos y que sufren, contribuyendo a reforzar una cultura de la ayuda, del don, de la esperanza y de la vida”. 

El Santo Padre recibió en el Vaticano este sábado 13 de abril a los voluntarios de la Asociación Italiana de Donantes de Órganos y, ante ellos alabó que “los avances de la medicina en materia de trasplantes han hecho posible la donación de órganos después de la muerte y en algunos casos también en vida (como en el caso del riñón) para salvar otras vidas humanas, para conservar, recuperar y mejorar el estado de salud de muchas personas enfermas que no tienen otra alternativa”.

Explicó que “la donación de órganos responde a una necesidad social porque, a pesar de los avances de muchos tratamientos médicos, la necesidad de órganos sigue siendo grande”.

Sin embargo, “el significado de la donación para el donante, para el receptor, para la sociedad, no se agota en su ‘utilidad’, ya que se trata de experiencias profundamente humanas y cargadas de amor y de altruismo”. 

“Donar significa mirar e ir más allá de uno mismo, más allá de las necesidades individuales y abrirse generosamente hacia un bien más amplio. En esta perspectiva, la donación de órganos surge no solo como un acto de responsabilidad social, sino como una expresión de la fraternidad universal que une a todos los hombres y mujeres”.

El Papa recordó las palabras del Catecismo de la Iglesia Católica, donde se enseña que “la donación de órganos después de la muerte es un acto noble y meritorio que debe ser alentado como manifestación de solidaridad generosa”.

Asimismo, subrayó la importancia de “mantener la donación de órganos como un acto gratuito no remunerado”. Insistió en que “cualquier forma de mercantilización del cuerpo o de parte de él es contraria a la dignidad humana. Cuando se dona sangre o un órgano del cuerpo, es necesario respetar la perspectiva ética y religiosa”.

En ese sentido, pidió “promover una cultura de la donación que, a través de la información, la sensibilización y vuestro compromiso constante y apreciado, favorezca esta oferta de una parte del propio cuerpo, sin riesgos ni consecuencias desproporcionadas, en la donación en vida, y de todos los órganos después de la propia muerte”.

          Seis preguntas clave para entender la Semana Santa      Comment   Translate Page      

Sin embargo, no todos conocen cada detalle sobre este tiempo, como por qué se celebra o de qué se compone exactamente. Recogemos las 6 preguntas básicas para entender la Semana Santa.

¿Qué es la Semana Santa?

La Semana Santa es el periodo en el que se prepara y conmemora la Pasión y Muerte de Jesucristo.

Comienza con su entrada en Jerusalén y termina con su crucifixión.

¿Cómo celebran los católicos la Semana Santa?

Hay cuatro ceremonias importantes durante la Semana Santa.

El domingo de Ramos recuerda la llegada de Jesús a Jerusalén. Los católicos ese día organizan procesiones con ramas de olivo y palmas bendecidas.

El Jueves Santo se conmemora la traición de Judas y la Última Cena, donde Jesús instituyó la Eucaristía. Por la mañana, los obispos se reúnen con los sacerdotes de sus diócesis y bendicen los santos óleos. El lavatorio de los pies tiene lugar más tarde ese día durante la Misa de la Última Cena.

El Viernes Santo es el día más triste del año para los católicos. Rememora la agonía y el sufrimiento del prendimiento, el juicioy la muerte de Jesús. Ese día no hay Misa. Jesús ha muerto.

Al anochecer del sábado Santo tiene lugar la principal celebración cristiana del año: la Vigilia Pascual. Se conmemora la Resurrección de Jesús.

¿Por qué adornan las iglesias de esa manera?

Durante el Viernes y el Sábado Santo, las iglesias están adornadas de manera distinta que el resto del año. Muchas de ellas, utilizan el negro o el morado para la decoración. En Italia, cubren los crucifijos una semana antes de que comience la Semana Santa y durante el Viernes y el Sábado Santo, no hay Eucaristía ni Agua bendita.

¿Desde cuándo celebran los católicos la Semana Santa?

La Semana Santa se celebra desde los comienzos de la Iglesia. Hay documentos que datan que ya en el siglo IV, cristianos en Egipto, Palestina, y la actual Turquía y Armenia, conmemoraban la Pasión de Cristo. Es probable que estas celebraciones se llevaran a cabo durante algunos años antes.  A Europa esta costumbre llegó en el siglo V.

¿Cuándo se celebra la Semana Santa?

La Semana Santa es la última semana de Cuaresma. Comienza con el Domingo de Ramos y termina el Sábado Santo. Este año, la Semana Santa dura desde el 29 de marzo hasta el 4 de abril. Cada año se celebra en una fecha distinta, se fija el domingo siguiente de la primera luna llena de la primavera, este año el 5 de abril.

¿Cuándo ocurrió verdaderamente la Semana Santa?

Se calcula que la Resurrección de Jesús se produjo el Domingo 9 de abril. De manera que el Jueves Santo tuvo lugar el 6 de abril.

Cristo con la cruz (El Greco)

El santo Triduo pascual
de la Pasión y Res urrección
del Señor es el
punto culminante
de todo el año litúrgico

Durante el Triduo,
la Iglesia conmemora
los grandes acontecimientos
que jalonaron los
últimos días del Señor. 

La expresión Triduo pascual, aplicada a las fiestas anuales de la Pasión y Resurrección, es relativamente reciente, pues no se remonta más allá de los años treinta de nuestro siglo; pero ya a finales del siglo IV San Ambrosio hablaba de un Triduum Sacrum para referirse a las etapas del misterio pascual de Cristo que, durante tres días, et passus est, et quievit et resurrexit

Deslumbrada por la realidad histórica de la muerte de Cristo, la primitiva Iglesia advirtió la necesidad de celebrar litúrgicamente este hecho salvífico, por medio de un rito memorial, donde, en obediencia al mandato expreso del Señor, se renovara sacramentalmente su sacrificio.

De este modo, durante los primeros compases de la vida de la Iglesia, la Pascua del Señor se conmemoraba cíclicamente, a partir de la asamblea eucarística convocada el primer día de la semana, día de la resurrección del Señor (dominicus dies) o domingo.

Y, muy pronto, apenas en el siglo II, comenzó a reservarse un domingo particular del año para celebrar este misterio salvífico de Cristo. Llegados a este punto, el nacimiento del Triduo Pascual era sólo cuestión de tiempo, cuando la Iglesia comenzase a revivir los misterios de Cristo de modo histórico, hecho que acaeció, por primera vez en Jerusalén, donde aún se conservaba la memoria del marco topográfico de los sucesos de la pasión y glorificación de Cristo.

De todos modos, en el origen de la celebración pascual, tampoco puede subestimarse la benéfica influencia de la respuesta dogmática y litúrgica de la ortodoxia frente a la herejía arriana; reacción que supuso una atracción de la piedad de los fieles hacia la persona de Jesús (Hijo de Dios e Hijo de María), y hacia sus hechos históricos.

Cada celebración del Triduo presenta su fisonomía particular: la tarde del Jueves Santo conmemora la institución de la Eucaristía; el Viernes se dedica entero a la evocación de la Pasión y Muerte de Jesús en la cruz; durante el sábado la Iglesia medita el descanso de Jesús en el sepulcro. Por último, en la Vigilia Pascual, los fieles reviven la alegría de la Resurrección.


Cristo en la crucifixión


La Misa vespertina in Cena Domini abre el Triduo Pascual. La iglesia de Jerusalén conocía ya, en el siglo IV, una celebración eucarística conmemorativa de la Última Cena, y la institución del sacramento del sacrificio de la Cruz:

Al principio, esta celebración se desarrollaba sobre el Gólgota, en la basílica del Martyrion, al pie de la Cruz, y no en el Cenáculo; hecho que confirma la íntima relación entre la celebración eucarística y el sacrificio de la Cruz.

A finales del siglo IV, esta tradición se vivía también en numerosas iglesias de occidente, pero habrá que esperar hasta el siglo VII para encontrar los primeros testimonios romanos.


El Viernes Santo conmemora la Pasión y Muerte del Señor. Dos documentos de venerable antigüedad (la Traditio Apostolica de San Hipólito y la Didaskalia Apostolorum,ambas del siglo III) testimonian como práctica común entre los cristianos el gran ayuno del Viernes y Sábado previos a la Vigilia Pascual.

Sin embargo, habrá que esperar hasta finales del siglo IV d.C. para encontrar, en Jerusalén, las primeras celebraciones litúrgicas de la Pasión del Señor: se trataba de una jornada dedicada íntegramente a la oración itinerante; los fieles acudían del Cenáculo (donde se veneraba la columna de la flagelación) al Gólgota, donde el obispo presentaba el madero de la Cruz. Durante las estaciones se leían profecías y evangelios de la Pasión, se cantaban salmos y se recitaban oraciones.

Los testimonios más antiguos de una liturgia de Viernes Santo en Roma proceden del siglo VII. Manifiestan dos tradiciones distintas, y nos han llegado a través del Sacramentario Gelasiano (oficio presbiteral con adoración de la cruz, liturgia de la palabra y comunión con los presantificados) y el Sacramentario Gregoriano (liturgia papal, limitada a lecturas bíblicas y plegaria universal).


En los primeros siglos de historia de la Iglesia, el Sábado Santo se caracterizaba por ser un día de ayuno absoluto, previo a la celebración de las fiestas pascuales. Pero a partir del siglo XVI, con la anticipación de la Vigilia a la mañana del sábado, el significado litúrgico del día quedó completamente oscurecido, hasta que las sucesivas reformas de nuestro siglo le han devuelto su originaria significación.  El Sábado Santo debe ser para los fieles un día de intensa oración, acompañando a Jesús en el silencio del Sepulcro.


La celebración litúrgica de la Pascua del Señor se encuentra en los orígenes mismos del culto cristiano. Desde la generación apostólica, los cristianos conmemoraron semanalmente la Resurrección de Cristo, por medio de la asamblea eucarística dominical.


La Resurrección de Cristo (Piero della Francesca)

Además, ya en el siglo II, la Iglesia celebra una fiesta específica como memoria actual de la Pascua de Cristo, aunque las distintas tradiciones subrayen uno u otro contenido pascual: Pascua-Pasión (se celebraba el 14 de Nisán, según el calendario lunar judío, y acentuaba el hecho histórico de la Cruz) y Pascua-Glorificación, que, privilegiando la resurrección del Señor, se celebraba el domingo posterior al 14 de Nisán, día de la Resurrección de Cristo. Esta última práctica se impuso en la Iglesia desde comienzos del siglo III.

La Noche Santa (San Agustín la llama la “madre de todas las vigilias”) culmina el Santo Triduo e inicia el tiempo pascual, celebrando la Gloria de la Resurrección del Señor. De aquí que su contenido teológico encierre el misterio de Cristo Salvador y del cristiano salvado. Ello explica que, desde los primeros siglos, se celebrase el bautismo de los catecúmenos en la Vigilia Pascual.

Como ya indica San Agustín en sus Sermones (220-221), toda la celebración de esta Vigilia Sagrada debe hacerse en la noche, de tal modo que o bien comience después de iniciada la noche, o acabe antes del alba del domingo.

La Vigilia Pascual se convierte en el punto central donde confluyen las celebraciones anuales de los misterios de la vida de Cristo.

          Domingo de Ramos – “No os dejéis robar la esperanza”      Comment   Translate Page      

24 de marzo, 2013.

Montado en el papamóvil, el papa Francisco entró en la plaza de San Pedro para presidir la Misa del Domingo de Ramos, que da inicio a la Semana Santa. La primera de su pontificado.

Tras un pequeño recorrido por la plaza de San Pedro, el Papa bendijo junto al obelisco las palmas y las ramas de olivo que recuerdan la entrada de Jesús en Jerusalén.

El papa Francisco habló en su homilía de tres puntos importantes en la vida de los cristianos. El primero la alegría de haber encontrado a Jesús.


“No seáis nunca hombres, mujeres tristes: un cristiano jamás puede serlo. Nunca os dejéis vencer por el desánimo. Nuestra alegría no es algo que nace de tener tantas cosas, sino de haber encontrado a una persona, Jesús”.“No os dejéis robar la esperanza”.

Con esta celebración comienza la Semana Santa, en la que se recuerda la Pasión, Muerte y Resurrección de Jesús. Por eso, el segundo punto de la homilía del papa Francisco fue explicar el sentido de la cruz.


“Pienso en lo que Benedicto XVI decía a los cardenales. Sois príncipes de un rey crucificado”. “Esto es el bien que Jesús nos hace a todos nosotros en el trono de la cruz. La cruz de Cristo, abrazada con amor, no lleva nunca a la tristeza sino a la alegría, a la alegría de ser salvados y de hacer un poquito, como él hizo el día de su muerte”.

Desde hace 28 años, el Domingo de Ramos es también una Jornada de la Juventud en Roma. Por eso el tercer punto de la homilía del Papa fue para los jóvenes a quienes les dijo que les espera en Río de Janerio, donde este julio tendrá lugar la Jornada Mundial de la Juventud.


“Queridos amigos, también yo me pongo en camino con vosotros, sobre las huellas del beato Juan Pablo II y Benedicto XVI. Ahora estamos ya cerca de la próxima etapa de esta gran peregrinación de la cruz de Cristo. Aguardo con alegría el próximo mes de julio, en Río de Janeiro. Os doy cita en aquella gran ciudad de Brasil. Preparaos bien, sobre todo espiritualmente en vuestras comunidades, para que este encuentro sea un signo de fe para el mundo entero”.

Con fuerza, el nuevo Papa habló de manera improvisada a los jóvenes y les dijo que tienen un papel muy importante dentro de la Iglesia y también en el mundo.


“Los jóvenes deben decir al mundo entero que es bueno seguir a Jesús, que es bueno caminar junto Jesús, que es bueno el mensaje de Jesús, que es bueno salir de uno mismo e ir a los confines del mundo y de la existencia parallevar a Jesús. Tres palabras: alegría, cruz, y jóvenes”.

Antes de terminar la Misa del Domingo de Ramos, el Papa rezó en latín el ángelus, ante unas 250.000 personas presentes en la celebración que da inicio a la Semana Santa.

          Hoy se celebra a San Hermenegildo, mártir y “patrono de los conversos”      Comment   Translate Page      
REDACCIÓN CENTRAL, 13 Abr. 19 (ACI Prensa).- San Hermenegildo fue un príncipe visigodo formado dentro de la herejía arrianista que murió martirizado después de su conversión al catolicismo, específicamente por negarse a recibir la comunión de manos de un obispo arriano. Nació en Sevilla cerca del 564.

El arrianismo tiene su origen en el sacerdote alejandrino Arrio, quien formuló una herejía en contra del dogma de la Santísima Trinidad: la negación de la divinidad de Jesucristo. Esta fue adoptada por el pueblo visigodo durante su permanencia en el Imperio Romano de Oriente.

El último monarca que profesó esta herejía fue Leovigildo, padre de San Hermenegildo, quien afianzó en España el dominio del pueblo visigodo entre 1569 y 1586.

A pesar de que San Hermenegildo fue criado dentro de esta herejía, se casó con una princesa católica franca de nombre Ingunda en el 576, de la cual aprendió todo acerca de la fe.

Por otro lado su padre contrajo segundas nupcias con Goswintha viuda del rey Atanagildo, quien además era abuela de Ingunda y una fervorosa arriana anticatólica.

Goswintha era intransigente con Ingunda y trató de apartarla de la religión católica. Ante la negativa y para zanjar el entredicho, en el año 579 el rey Leovigildo envió a Hermenegildo a la ciudad de Bética (hoy Córdova, Andalucía), donde sería gobernador.

Sin embargo, ante el insostenible fanatismo religioso de su madrastra y la severidad con que su padre trataba a los católicos en España, San Hermenegildo se vio obligado a tomar las armas en protección de sus hermanos cristianos y de sí mismo.

Fue por ello que el ahora santo decidió alzarse en armas contra su padre, con el apoyo de Bética y Mérida, y se proclamó rey. Asimismo, formó una alianza con los bizantinos.

Tras cinco años de guerra civil, Hermenegildo fue derrotado y capturado en Sevilla por su padre. Después fue desterrado a Tarragona donde finalmente sería ejecutado con un mazo en la cabeza en la Pascua del año 585, por no querer recibir la comunión de manos de un obispo arriano.

El rey Leovigildo murió en el 586 y fue sucedido por el hermano de Hermenegildo, Recaredo, que un año después se convirtió al catolicismo. En el III Concilio de Toledo (589) los principales representantes del pueblo godo profesaron solemnemente la fe católica, fecha que marca la asociación de España y el catolicismo hasta hoy.

San Gregorio el Grande atribuye a los méritos de San Hermenegildo la conversión de su hermano Recaredo y de toda la España visigótica.

En 1585 Felipe II de España le pide al Papa Sixto V que autorice el culto al mártir Hermenegildo en todo el reino. Su festividad se escogió en el aniversario de su muerte, el 13 de abril.

San Hermenegildo fue oficialmente canonizado por el Papa Urbano VIII en 1639 y lo declaró “patrono de los conversos”.

          Cellist Yo-Yo Ma Plays Bach In Shadow Of Border Crossing       Comment   Translate Page      

World-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma brought his Bach Project to the sister cities of Laredo, Texas, and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, on Saturday. Laredo's "Day of Action" featured performances in both cities to celebrate the relationship between the two communities.

Ma played the opening notes of Johann Sebastian Bach's "Suite No. 1 for Unaccompanied Cello" in a park next to the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge, one of the crossings that connect the U.S. and Mexican cities.

The Laredo performance took place on an elevated stage before an audience of officials and onlookers. Concerns over possible rain disappeared as Ma began to play in the morning sunshine.

It was part of his Bach Project, which uses the composer's 300-year-old music to explore connections between cultures. The project has taken him all over the world. On Friday it brought him to Laurie Auditorium at Trinity University in San Antonio, and on Saturday it brought him to Laredo, within a few feet of the Rio Grande.

"As you all know, as you did and do and will do, in culture, we build bridges, not walls," he said. After his performance, he gestured to the bridge to his right. "I've lived my life at the borders. Between cultures. Between disciplines. Between musics. Between generations."

Mateo Bailey, 16, lives in San Antonio. He grew up in El Paso, plays the cello, and is the son of Grammy Award-winning cellist Zuill Bailey.

He felt Ma's performance had special significance "because this event is on the border. And I'm half-Mexican as well as half-American ... and for him to connect cello with what's happening in the world is like, it's a cultural bridge that was just built, and it's amazing."

Betty DeLeon praised the cellist for visiting. "It speaks of him. What a wonderful human being to take his time and come to our tiny little town to share the importance of culture. On the border. It's amazing. It's a privilege to be a part of this."

Pete Saenz, mayor of Laredo, said despite the river and despite the bridge spanning overhead, the border is one community.

"And although people may perceive us as being so different, we're not," he said. "Here the border is extremely unique in that it's one organism. I've always said we're interdependent, interconnected. We survived because the border side survives, especially here on the border area."

This "Day of Action" also included a performance in Plaza Juarez in Nuevo Laredo, a few blocks from the international crossing. Its overall theme was an appreciation for the connections between the two cities, which see themselves as one community.

Ma was originally scheduled to play on the actual bridge, which would be briefly closed. The planned closure would've been a collaborative effort between officials and residents on both sides of the border. But the traffic and pedestrian delays the performance would have caused convinced officials to move the locale to the Tres Laredos Park right next to the bridge.

The famous cellist has studied and performed the German composer's music for six decades.

In 2018, Ma set out on a two-year journey to perform Bach's six suites for cello in 36 locations around the world. He felt the music had an ability to connect cultures and humanity from all walks of life. He said that is what motivated him to launch the project.

          Event Update For 2019-04-11      Comment   Translate Page 

The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.

A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

          US warns citizens to ‘reconsider travelling to Nigeria’      Comment   Translate Page      

The US department of state has cautioned its citizens to “reconsider travel to Nigeria because violent crime, such as armed robbery, assault, carjacking, terrorism, civil unrest, kidnapping, rape and piracy, is common throughout the country.”

In a travel advisory recently released on its website, which contains information on the safety and security of US travellers, Nigeria was listed among 35 countries with a “K” indicator that indicates where its citizens could be at risk of getting kidnapped or taken hostage.

“The new “K” indicator is part of our ongoing commitment to provide clear and comprehensive travel safety information to U.S. citizens so they can make informed travel decisions,” the department said.

“The Travel Advisories for 35 countries have been updated to include a “K” indicator for the risk of kidnapping and/or hostage taking: Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Kenya, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Mali, Mexico, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Russian Federation, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Uganda, Ukraine (in Russian-controlled eastern Ukraine), Venezuela, and Yemen.”

While Nigeria was placed on level 3, the US department of state issued a level 4 travel alert for Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states.

“The security situation in northeast Nigeria is fluid and unpredictable, particularly in Borno and Yobe States and northern Adamawa State,” the department said.

“Terrorist groups based in the Northeast target churches, schools, mosques, government installations, educational institutions, and entertainment venues. Approximately two million of Nigerians have been displaced as a result of the violence in northeast Nigeria.”

The 35 countries were placed in four levels of travel with respect to their safety and security risk.

          4/13 From 1950 Through the 1970’s: Roberts Makes History (maybe); 10 In A Row For Law; Balky Rule; Game Stories; HBD Doug & Ricardo      Comment   Translate Page      
  • 1954 - Seven years after Jackie Robinson broke baseball's color barrier, second baseman Curt Roberts made his major league debut during the season opener at Forbes Field and became the first African American to play for the Pirates (although a good case can be made for Carlos Bernier, who came up in 1953, but was considered Latino rather than black). The former Kansas City Monarch tripled off Robin Roberts in the first inning as the Bucs beat the Phillies, 4-2, by scoring four times in the eighth frame. It was the first time the Pirates had ever opened the season at Forbes Field, drawing 32,294 fans. It was their 11th straight home opener win, a streak that would end the following year. There was a little pre-game merriment as three-year-old Leslie Blair, Honus Wagner’s granddaughter, was slated to throw out the first pitch after the City had awarded a plaque to Hans’ daughter. She was struck by stage fright and never let loose the horsehide, forcing the umps to begin the game without its traditional opening.

  • 1962 - The Mets played their first Home Opener against the Bucs with only 12,447 fans at the Polo Grounds on a cold, drizzly day. It was Friday the 13th, and the date cursed the home team as the Pirates scored the winning run on two eighth-inning wild pitches thrown by Ray Diavault, scoring Dick Groat, who had opened with a walk, to defeat New York, 4-3. The Pirates had eight hits, with five coming from the 6-7-8 hitters (Smoky Burgess, Don Hoak & Billy Maz), who accounted for two runs and three RBI. Tom Sturdivant went seven innings for the win with ElRoy Face working the last two frames for the save. 
  • 1963 - The Pirates clobbered the Reds 12-4 at Crosley Field, but the big story was on the bump. The league decided to clamp down on balks and a record seven were called in the game, including a MLB high of four on Bob Friend (the mark lasted a month until the Braves’ Bob Shaw was caught five times), who was nonplussed by the calls. He admitted that he never adhered to the full stop rule because it had never been called before. An MLB record 924 balks were rung up during the season after umpires were instructed to enforce the complete, one-second stop during the wind-up. As for the game, three Bucs - Ducky Schofield, Bob Skinner and Billy Maz - had three hits; Roberto Clemente and Friend had two knocks each. Pete Rose collected his first MLB hit during the game, a triple. 
  • 1964 - IF Doug Strange was born in Greenville, South Carolina. He ended his nine-year MLB run off the bench in Pittsburgh, batting .173 in 90 games. He spent a couple of seasons as minor-league depth, then joined the Marlins as a scout for a couple of more years before coming over to Pittsburgh’s Baseball Operations section in 2002. He’s now a Special Assistant to the GM. 
Doug Strange 1998 Pacifica Aurora
  • 1966 - Vern Law won his 10th straight game by a 6-0 count over the Braves at Atlanta Stadium. The Deacon gave up four hits, no walks and fanned four, never allowing a runner beyond first base. Willie Stargell had a homer and three RBI; Donn Clendenon added a two-run blow. Law would miss a month after that with an injury, lose the next outing in May and finish 12-8/4.05 on the campaign. He had one more year left in the tank. 
  • 1968 - Al McBean went the distance to claim a 2-1 victory over San Francisco and Gaylord Perry at Candlestick Park. McBean did it all; he tossed a three-hitter and even singled in the winning run with two outs in the seventh inning. The key play was The Great One gunning down Willie Mays at third to keep the lid on a potential rally by the Giants. Per BR Bullpen, Willie Mays recalled being caught going from first to third just once in his career, and it was on this day. "Roberto Clemente threw me out on a bang-bang play at third. I should have remembered what a tremendous arm he had" later explained the sadder-but-wiser Say Hey Kid. 
  • 1970 - LHP Ricardo Rincon was born in Cuitlahuac, Mexico. Rincon, signed as a veteran of the Mexican leagues, pitched for the Pirates from 1997-98. He went 4-10-50/3.17 with 135 K in 125 IP. Rincon was part of a combined no-hitter on July 12th, 1997 when Francisco Cordova threw nine innings of hitless ball and Rincon pitched a clean 10th. He was traded for Brian Giles in 1998.
  • 1976 - The Bucs promised a Lumber Company for the fans, and came through in the home opener at TRS with a 14-4 win over St. Louis, hammering out thirteen hits to go with twelve walks. Dave “The Cobra” Parker homered and collected five RBI, Al “Scoops” Oliver had three hits and three RBI while Manny Sanguillen had the only three-walk game of his career and touched home three times.

More red coral.
The ancient Egyptians placed pieces of coral in tombs as a protection against evil spirits because they believed that each piece contained a drop of divine blood. Coral is not a mineral but the skeleton of sea creatures, thus organic in origin. Developed over many thousands of years, it consists almost entirely of calcium.

The role played by silver in ancient civilizations is similar to that played by gold. Until the eighteenth century silver was considered almost as valuable as gold. Silver jewelry has been found as early as the fourth millennium B.C. Saxony was the main supplier of silver for a long time and as a result, became very rich. The discovery of the America's and subsequent silver mining in the United State and Mexico were responsible for the drop in value. Silver is a precious metal, not a mineral. Today the largest deposits of silver are found in Mexico, Australia and Russia.

Some believe that silver transmits and intensifies the power of healing stones, so that when they are set in silver they become even more powerful. Turquoise and coral are examples. Like gold, silver symbolizes wealth and prosperity. Those prone to outbursts of anger and rudeness can be pacified by silver.

Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Asuncion, Paraguay
April 13, 2019

QUESTION: Thank you, Secretary Pompeo, for another time, another opportunity to talk to you.

SECRETARY POMPEO: It’s great to be with you again.

QUESTION: Thank you. Let’s begin with one of the hottest topics, Venezuela. This is one of the topics you have been talking about for quite a long time already, and I would like to know how you can explain to the Venezuelan people who is the real president. We take into consideration that some Venezuelans still pay taxes to the government of Nicolas Maduro. If a government, a foreign government, needs to help their own citizens living in Venezuela, they need to get in contact with Maduro’s officers. How can we explain that to the Venezuelan people?

SECRETARY POMPEO: That’s a great and important question. The Venezuelan people have spoken. The sham election that gave Maduro the pretend authority that he has – the world has recognized. There are now 54 countries in addition to the people of Venezuela who recognize that Maduro is not a legitimate leader. He still has control of elements of power, to be sure, but the people have spoken; we know what they want.

Maduro and his henchmen have destroyed this nation. The Venezuelan people can see that very plainly. It’s why they didn’t want him back. They gave power to the National Assembly, now Juan Guaido, in a way that will ultimately deliver true democracy and prosperity back to Venezuela.

You know the history. This is a rich nation, a wealthy nation, a nation of people who are industrious and are prepared to work very, very hard. What they need is a leader who is prepared to help them, not be corrupt, not turn over power to the Cubans, and demand interventions to save them by the Russians. The new leadership will do that, and the United States stands ready to support not only the Venezuelan people but all of the countries in this region – we’re sitting here today in Paraguay – the countries of this region who recognize the same.

QUESTION: What about if Maduro continues to hold the military power and to hold the city? Does the U.S. have a new strategy to go – does Maduro have a deadline, for example, for the U.S. Government?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So the strategy is not just an American strategy. It’s the Venezuelan people’s strategy. The opposition groups banded together, made clear that it was unacceptable what Maduro’s regime did. They gave Juan Guaido the authority through the National Assembly to lead their nation forward. This won’t be an American solution to this problem. It’ll be the solution that the Venezuelan people choose.

I remark sometimes people think Maduro is winning, and yet he’s handed over all of his power to the Cubans, to the Russians. This is weakness from Maduro. And so this weakness will ultimately lead to his departure, and democracy and prosperity will be restored in Venezuela. I am very confident of that.

QUESTION: And I know you already answered this question many times, but I have to ask. Are all options on the table still?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Of course. They remain on the table. We keep all options on the table because it’s very important, in that we don’t know how things will proceed. The Venezuelan people are entitled to the democracy that they have demanded, and we want to make sure that the resources of the United States of America aren’t foreclosed from being used if that turns out to be the right thing to do.

QUESTION: Now, as you mentioned, Maduro has the support of Russia and China. Does that turn a decision against the government of Maduro more complex to take? Could this rise tensions between Washington and the Kremlin?

SECRETARY POMPEO: I always remark I’ll hear some of the Maduro people talk about intervention in Venezuela. The Russians will say the Americans shouldn’t intervene in Venezuela. I mean, it’s almost funny to say, right? They have intervened in the most fundamental ways. The Cubans own the security apparatus. I would think if you were a Venezuelan military leader, you’d be embarrassed by that, right? The people, the people of Venezuela, want their own security. They want their own democracy. They want Venezuelans to lead their nation, not people from a small island, not people from Russia. They want their country to be led by their own people, and that’s what – that’s what Brazil and Colombia, the Lima Group, the OAS, here in Paraguay, that’s what all the leaders of the region are demanding, and it’s what the United States stands ready to support.

QUESTION: Is there any line of communication between U.S. officials and Venezuelan militaries?

SECRETARY POMPEO: I don’t think there’s any mistake about what America’s position is with respect to the Venezuelan military. We’ve made clear publicly that they ought not to continue to support Maduro, that this regime is over, it’s done, its day is finished, and that a new page needs to be turned, and that those who continue to support Maduro will face their own consequences, and those who make a different decision, those military leaders that make the decision to defend the Venezuelan people, will find happier days.

QUESTION: And does the U.S. support or has given any advice to the Guaido government about giving amnesty to any Venezuelan military who turns their back on Venezuelan government?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Sure, we’re talked with Juan Guaido about what a first day would look like, right? Maduro will leave, and we want to make sure that that next day that the world stands ready to support Venezuela. That will involve making decisions about how to address the transgressions of senior military leaders, those that inflicted violence, those who did harm to Venezuelans – well, they’ll be held accountable. Those who made a different decision, a better decision, a decision on behalf of the democratic institutions of Venezuela, will be treated very differently.

QUESTION: With many countries in Latin America turning to the right and with the economical crisis in Venezuela at its worst, do you think the Iranian Government still have some presence in Latin America? And if it does, is it still a threat for the U.S. national security?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So the question is does the – do the Iranians? Yes. There’s no doubt Iranian money remains in South America being used for malign purposes, supporting Hizballah, supporting transnational criminal organizations, supporting efforts at terrorism throughout the region. The United States is working with our partners in this area to take down those networks, to take down that risk.

IRGC – you saw the other day there was an air flight straight, straight from Tehran to Caracas. This is Iran intervening in South America. That’s not in the best interest of the South American people, and the United States stands ready. We see Iran for what it is, the world’s largest state sponsor of terror. That’s a global threat, and we’re prepared to push back against it not only in the Middle East but in South America and wherever we find that threat present.

QUESTION: Moving forward, Secretary Pompeo, yesterday you mentioned in a speech from Santiago, in Santiago, and you used Chile as an example, as a model for economical growth. But Chile also have many trades with China – $43 billion, if I’m not mistaken – and the U.S. comes as a second partner. Can any country from Latin America have economical and diplomatic relationship with China while at the same time they do with the United States?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Well, of course. What we have said about China is very clear. The United States has big economic relationships with China. We want China to thrive and prosper.

Here’s what we don’t want, especially in South America. We don’t want China to show up with bags full of money and bribe officials. We don’t want China to show up and put Huawei or Chinese technology into the infrastructure of these countries so that the citizens, the citizens of Chile or the citizens of Paraguay, have their information, their private information, stolen by the Chinese Government. We don’t want corrupt activity.

China should compete. We have democracies here in South America now. This is a glorious thing where there’s free markets and capitalism and opportunity. That value set of transparency, of the rule of law, that’s the one the South American people are demanding. It is not what China brings.

If China shows up to compete on a commercial basis, that seems perfectly reasonable. When they show up with malign intent, to give money with strings attached, which will destroy the sovereignty of a South American nation, that’s not good for the people in that country, and the United States is prepared to help those countries recognize that threat and to offer alternatives to it.

QUESTION: Changing the topic a little bit, the U.S. cut the funds for three countries in Central America – Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Is this a final decision, or can they make things better and gain the confidence of the U.S. Government and also the money?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Yeah, of course, they can. The United States is the most generous nation when it comes to both humanitarian and foreign assistance of any country in the world. The Trump administration has maintained that.

What we want to make sure is where we provide those resources, those dollars from the American taxpayer, that they are effective, that we get outcomes not only what we want but that those countries want as well. So President Trump’s decision, we saw that those countries weren’t doing what needed to be done to prevent this enormous migration challenge, this crisis that the United States has at its southern border. As those countries work to develop systems to prevent their citizens from taking this incredibly dangerous journey from Guatemala, from Honduras, or from El Salvador through Mexico into the United States, when those countries begin to take actions that stop that, we’ll reconsider that decision.

QUESTION: And my last question, Secretary. This week Nicaragua will remember a year since the political and social crisis began. More than 350 people died in this crisis. The negotiations are very slow right now, and their oppression continues with people who has demonstrated publicly. Is the United States taking new steps against the government of the president in Nicaragua?

SECRETARY POMPEO: That’s a great question. Here I am in Paraguay. I was in Chile. I’ll be in Peru, I’ll be in Colombia, before I head back to the United States. You watch most of the countries in South and Central America turning in the direction of freedom, in the direction of liberty, in the direction of democracy; and yet, you have Venezuela and Nicaragua stuck in history, stuck with dictatorships, stuck with bad leadership, kleptocrats, stealing from their own people.

Our efforts in Nicaragua are very similar to those in Venezuela. We want the Nicaraguan people to have all the great things that they are entitled to have and that they so desperately want. And Mr. Ortega and his wife both need to change their ways in order to give Nicaragua that very opportunity.

QUESTION: Secretary Pompeo, thank you very much for your time with Voice of America’s Spanish Service.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you very much. Thank you, sir. It’s great to see you again.

QUESTION: Thank you.

          What the War on Mexico Taught Grant      Comment   Translate Page      

From Grant, by Ron Chernow (Penguin, 2018), Kindle pp. 49-51:
THE MEXICAN WAR did more than just educate Grant in strategy and tactics, it also tutored him in the manifold ways wars are shot through with political calculations. “The Mexican war was a political war,” he would observe, “and the administration conducting it desired to make party capital out of it.” Monterrey’s fall made Zachary Taylor the darling of the Whig press. When this was followed by Whig victories in the November elections, giving the opposition party control of both houses of Congress, President Polk grew leery of Taylor as a Whig rival for president. In a Machiavellian maneuver, he decided to divest Taylor of most of his troops and replace him with Winfield Scott, a Whig lacking Taylor’s brand of popular charisma.

In high-handed fashion, Polk dispatched Scott to Texas without notifying Taylor of what was afoot. When Scott arrived in Point Isabel after Christmas, he informed Taylor by letter that he had taken over the Army of Invasion and was radically revamping the war strategy. ...

Grant was with Taylor when he received the shocking news of his demotion and never forgot his hero’s befuddled reaction. ... This early experience made Grant tend to view war as a hard-luck saga of talented, professional soldiers betrayed by political opportunists plotting back in Washington.

Between the founding era of the Republic and the Civil War, no figure embodied the American military more splendidly than Winfield Scott, who was promoted to brevet major general by the War of 1812. Straddling two eras, he would serve under presidents as far apart as James Madison and Abraham Lincoln. Mocked as “Old Fuss and Feathers” behind his back, he had never seen a parade ground he didn’t long to tread or a uniform he didn’t wish to wear. With his enormous height, wavy hair, and ample flesh, he loved to flash medals, flaunt plumed hats, and preen before mirrors, a vanity that made him susceptible to flattery. Grant noted how Scott sent word ahead to commanders of the precise hour he planned to arrive. “This was done so that all the army might be under arms to salute their chief as he passed. On these occasions he wore his dress uniform, cocked hat, aiguilletes, sabre and spurs.” Such vainglory was so alien to Grant that it is sometimes hard to say whether he modeled himself after Zachary Taylor or in opposition to Winfield Scott.

For all that, Grant credited Scott with a brilliantly resourceful mind and strategic daring. To travel from Veracruz to the capital, an army of twelve thousand would quit a secure supply base, traverse 250 miles of mountainous terrain, then face a much larger and well-fortified enemy in a populous capital. To do this, Scott assembled a first-rate team of bright junior officers, including Pierre G. T. Beauregard and George B. McClellan and a rising star on the engineering staff, Robert E. Lee. Throw in a host of other officers who later reappeared in the Civil War—Joseph Johnston, John Pemberton, James Longstreet, Winfield Scott Hancock, Albert Sidney Johnston, Joseph Hooker, George Thomas, Braxton Bragg, and George Gordon Meade—and the Mexican War seemed a dress rehearsal for the later conflict. With a retentive memory for faces and events, Grant accumulated a detailed inventory of knowledge about these varied men that he drew on later.

ABSTRACT: Продуктивность популяций рыб в водоемах и водотоках определяется степенью утилизации водо-рослей фильтрующим зоопланктоном. В зависимости от доминирования тех или иных размерных групп водорослей они с разной эффективностью будут потребляться фильтраторами зоопланктона, что в результате сказывается на потоке энергии по трофической цепи от водорослей до рыб. ! Рыбопродуктивность природных водоемов во многом определяется степенью утилизации первичной продук-ции консументами, в первую очередь ракообразными с фильтрационным типом питания. В пресных и морских водоемах основная масса зоопланктона представлена так называемым «мирным» зоопланктоном; на их долю по-рой приходится до 80% общей массы зоопланктона [8; 12]. Именно фильтраторы играют ведущую роль в трансформа-ции вещества и передаче энергии по трофической цепи от фитопланктона к рыбам. В связи с малыми размерами зоопланктон имеет ин-тенсивный обмен веществ [7], высокую фильтрационную активность и плодовитость [4; 5]. Фильтрационная способ-ность их настолько велика, что в эвтрофных водоемах весь объем воды пропускается через фильтрационный аппарат зоопланктона всего за одни сутки. В море биомасса зоо-планктона меньше, чем в пресных водоемах, но и там объ-ем воды поверхностной зоны, в которой сконцентрирован зоопланктон, за год много раз проходит через фильтраци-онный аппарат зоопланктона [3].

Детрит формируется за счет органического веще-ства, выделяемого водными организмами, а также после их смерти. В некоторых изученных водоемах количество частиц планктонного детрита достигает несколько десятков частиц в 1 мл воды. В некоторых водоемах скорость оседания частиц детрита составляет около 1 м/сут., общая поверхность детритных частиц-10-20 м 2 /м 3 , в некоторых случаях больше. Детрит обладает высокой сорбционной способностью. ! | Введение | Одним из важных компонентов водных экоси-стем, включая водоемы рыбохозяйственного на-значения, является детрит. Изучению детрита и других видов биогенного органического вещества в экосистемах, в том числе в водных экосистемах, посвящена большая научная литература [1; 6-10; 13-28; 30-37; 43-50]. В подавляющем большинстве пресных водоемов (за исключением случаев цветения водорослей) де-трит по массе преобладает над живым веществом планктона. Детрит и различные формы органиче-ского вещества имеют большое экологическое зна-чение в функционировании водных экосистем []. Цель этой статьи-краткий обзор некоторых данных о детрите, с включением результатов работ авторов. Часть материалов данной статьи была доложена авторами на Объединенном пленуме Гидробиологического общества, Меж-ведомственной ихтиологической комиссии и Научного совета по гидробиологии и ихтиологии РАН (Москва, 25.03.2017).

A Trophy Hunter Paid $110K To Hunt An Endangered Goat In Pakistan

An American trophy hunter is currently receiving heat for a recent expedition to the northern Himalayan region of Gilgit-Baltistan in Pakistan. Bryan Kinsel Harlan, from Texas, paid $110,000 to hunt and kill a rare mountain goat. In the photograph below, he proudly kneels beside the kill.

“It was an easy and close shot. I am pleased to take this trophy”, Mr. Harlan told the Pakistani press.

Harlan is the third American to visit Pakistan to kill a markhor goat. The wild animal is believed to be endangered. In 2011, there were just about 2,500 markhor goats in that region. Over the past years, the population has dwindled immensely, largely due to deforestation, military activities, local poaching, and unregulated trophy hunting.

The picture prompted outrage on social media. People are mainly angered by the lack of laws banning or regulating hunting. Despite the fierce backlash, Harlan remains proud of his adventure.

The video of Harlan’s hunting expedition depicts him climbing a cliff. He then shoots a male markhor which was sitting next to a young goat.

In the next footage, Harlan expressed his gratitude for being “welcomed with open arms.” He called Pakistan a safe destination for tourists and recommended it to American travelers.

Pakistan has allocated five sanctuaries in India for the rare mountain goats to roam freely and breed, to prevent the markhor goat from going extinct. Authorities in the country also allow hunters that have paid large amounts of money, to hunt markhor goats in the region. They say that the effort will protect the endangered species from potential extinction.

          Washington is about to become the next state to pass a 100% clean energy bill      Comment   Translate Page      

With a vote of 56-42, the Washington state House of Representatives passed a clean energy bill that would require the Evergreen State to use 100 percent clean energy for its electricity needs by 2045. The Associated Press reports that the amended bill goes back to the state Senate, but is expected to pass and get signed by Gov. Jay Inslee as one of his campaign promises.

The bill would require coal to be phased out by 2025, relying on a large amount of hydroelectric power until the state finds more carbon-free sources. This bit of legislation would potentially provide an even more stark juxtaposition of the conservative and progressive movements, with the Trump administration reportedly mulling over the idea of turning military bases on the coast of Washington state into coal export facilities.

When this bill is signed into law it will make Washington the fourth state, following Hawaii, California, and New Mexico, to commit to a 100 percent clean energy solution.

          USA RV Park 5/10 - Gallup, New Mexico      Comment   Translate Page      
Pro - Not far from I-40, close to shopping, fuel, restaurants. Park is easy to maneuver in, we stayed in the new part with plenty of room for the RV & Tow to pull in. Sites are all gravel with a picnic table. The laundry is clean and reasonable. The shower/bathrooms are clean and nice. To cold to use the pool, but it looked nice. Small store in the office area that sells some food and other things. Deltas - Most pull-thru sites are opposing each other, so it makes you very close to your neighbor. The new section sites are very close also. Wi-fi was terrible and did not work, no cable tv. The park is located at the end of the town airport, so planes are coming in/going just over your head at all hours. Did hear a train at night in the distance, but not to loud. People were just walking their dogs on the park roads. They do
