          Mueller Report Not The End, ‘Long Shadow’ Of Russia Investigation Spreads To Roger Stone, Other Ongoing Cases      Comment   Translate Page      

Robert Mueller listens

With a heavily redacted version of the Robert Mueller Russia investigation report due to be released publicly within a week, Mueller’s own work appears to be done. However, the special counsel investigation continues to cast a “long shadow” over the Donald Trump administration, according to a Politico report, with an unknown number of investigations continuing to target key figures in Mueller’s probe — including longtime Trump friend and political adviser Roger Stone.

On Friday, prosecutors told a judge in a Washington D.C. federal court that they could not make search warrant documents from Stone’s case public — despite a freedom-of-information demand from several media organizations — because the warrants contain details that “concern investigations that remain ongoing,” according to CNN.

In January, Stone’s home was searched and he was arrested in an early morning raid. Mueller then slapped Stone with a 24-page indictment charging him with lying to investigators, witness tampering, and obstruction, as The Inquisitr reported.

           Comment on Trump’s anti-Semitism envoy’s main target is ‘ancient scourge of anti-Zionism’ aimed at ‘strangling Jewish state’ by Keith       Comment   Translate Page      
PHIL- <i>"This screwball obsessive focus on anti-Zionism can only serve those who have not been heard, criticizing Israel and seeking to reform it (as Asad AbuKhalil suggests)."</i> At the time, I am sure there were those who said the same thing about the "excesses" of Hitler's Brown Shirts. Things are rapidly going from bad to worse. Do you think that the blatantly illegal arrest of truth teller Julian Assange will lead to rebellion? Intimidation usually works. The fat-cats have taken the gloves off and will likely crush any and all resistance. This is all part of the endless war at the end of the present era to determine who rules in the new era, assuming there are survivors.

I'm interested in that last sentence - "last night David Brooks of the New York Times endorsed reparations to blacks as a policy idea.". Brooks has the conservative creds to be a leader on this issue but don't hold your breath - his son served in the Israeli army ( http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2014/09/david-brooks-son-idf-israeli-army.html ). Yesterday I heard him on the radio saying that "Israel tried to be a liberal multicultural society but the Oslo peace process failed..", as if Israel had nothing to do with it.

If David Brooks supports reparations, then you know that the idea has been completely pacified and tamed in the context of mainstream debate. See Adolph Reed's criticism on this issue. Does Brooks support reparations for the Palestinians?

          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.

          Ohio Republicans just made it legal for men to rape their drunk wives & force them to give birth. Seriously.      Comment   Translate Page      

The tagline for ACASignups.net is "healthcare policy data, analysis & snark", so naturally many of my blog posts have tongue-in-cheek, sarcastic headlines.

This is not one of those times. The headline above is absolutely, sickeningly true.

On a couple of days ago, both houses of the Ohio state legislature--the House and Senate alike--voted to ban abortion outright six weeks after conception. There's no exception for rape. There's no exception for incest. There is an exception for the life of the mother (not her health, mind you...just her actual ability to keep breathing)...but that's it. Yesterday this bill was signed into law by GOP Governor Mike DeWine.

The six-week abortion ban known as the "heartbeat bill" is now law in Ohio. That makes Ohio the sixth state in the nation to attempt to outlaw abortions at the point a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

Gov. Mike DeWine signed the bill Thursday afternoon, just one day after it passed the Republican-led General Assembly. The law is slated to take effect in 90 days, unless blocked by a federal judge.

Now known as the "Human Rights Protection Act," SB 23 outlaws abortions as early as five or six weeks into a pregnancy, before many women know they're pregnant. It is one of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country.

The bill does include an exception to save the life of the woman, but no exceptions for cases of rape or incest.

...DeWine's signature will set off a lengthy legal fight. The ACLU of Ohio announced it will sue to stop the law, which the group says "virtually bans all abortion care."

"This legislation is blatantly unconstitutional and we will fight to the bitter end to ensure that this bill is permanently blocked," said ACLU of Ohio legal director Freda Levenson in a statement.

As horrific as this is already, it gets worse...far worse. You see,

During House session yesterday, @RepGalonski had an amendment to make it illegal to rape your wife. (It's legal in Ohio if she's drunk or incapacitated. Seriously.)

These are the 58 Republicans who rejected making spousal rape illegal: pic.twitter.com/GWM0h9Rdkq

— Gabriel Mann (@OhioGabe) April 12, 2019

I decided to look it up, and sure enough, if you take a look at pages 314 - 341 of the Ohio House Session Journal for Wednesday, April 10th, 2019, you'll see this section (actually starting on page 321), which deals with amendments to the "fetal heartbeat" bill:

Sec. 2907.02. (A)(1) No person shall engage in sexual conduct with another who is not the spouse of the offender or who is the spouse of the offender but is living separate and apart from the offender, when any of the following applies:

(a) For the purpose of preventing resistance, the offender substantially impairs the other person's judgment or control by administering any drug, intoxicant, or controlled substance to the other person surreptitiously or by force, threat of force, or deception.

(b) The other person is less than thirteen years of age, whether or not the offender knows the age of the other person.

(c) The other person's ability to resist or consent is substantially impaired because of a mental or physical condition or because of advanced age, and the offender knows or has reasonable cause to believe that the other person's ability to resist or consent is substantially impaired because of a mental or physical condition or because of advanced age.

Sec. 2907.03. (A) No person shall engage in sexual conduct with another, not the spouse of the offender, when any of the following apply:

(1) The offender knowingly coerces the other person to submit by any means that would prevent resistance by a person of ordinary resolution.

(2) The offender knows that the other person's ability to appraise the nature of or control the other person's own conduct is substantially impaired.

(3) The offender knows that the other person submits because the other person is unaware that the act is being committed.

(4) The offender knows that the other person submits because the other person mistakenly identifies the offender as the other person's spouse.

Sec. 2907.05. (A) No person shall have sexual contact with another, not the spouse of the offender; cause another, not the spouse of the offender, to have sexual contact with the offender; or cause two or more other persons to have sexual contact when any of the following applies:

(1) The offender purposely compels the other person, or one of the other persons, to submit by force or threat of force.

(2) For the purpose of preventing resistance, the offender substantially impairs the judgment or control of the other person or of one of the other persons by administering any drug, intoxicant, or controlled substance to the other person surreptitiously or by force, threat of force, or deception.

(3) The offender knows that the judgment or control of the other person or of one of the other persons is substantially impaired as a result of the influence of any drug or intoxicant administered to the other person with the other person's consent for the purpose of any kind of medical or dental examination, treatment, or surgery.

(4) The other person, or one of the other persons, is less than thirteen years of age, whether or not the offender knows the age of that person.

(5) The ability of the other person to resist or consent or the ability of one of the other persons to resist or consent is substantially impaired because of a mental or physical condition or because of advanced age, and the offender knows or has reasonable cause to believe that the ability to resist or consent of the other person or of one of the other persons is substantially impaired because of a mental or physical condition or because of advanced age.

...and so on and so forth. In all the "not the spouse of the offender" exception to rape is mentioned 25 times.

It's important to stress that it was ALREADY legal for men to rape their unconscious, drugged, drunk or mentally impaired wives in Ohio, because the world is a sick and repulsive place.

On Wednesday, the Ohio state legislature had an opportunity to at the very least correct this sickening and misogynistic legal exception at the same time they were imposing an equally misogynistic one...and yet, as noted by Gabriel Mann, here was the vote on tabling the amendment...which is to say, shooting the amendment down:

The question being, “Shall the motion to amend be agreed to?”

Representative Seitz moved that the motion be laid on the table.

The question being, "Shall the motion to amend be laid on the table?"

The yeas and nays were taken and resulted – yeas 58, nays 38, as follows:

Those who voted in the affirmative were: Representatives

Antani Arndt Baldridge Becker Blessing Brinkman Butler Callender Carfagna Carruthers Cross Cupp Dean DeVitis Edwards Ghanbari Ginter Green Greenspan Hambley Hillyer Holmes, A. Hood Hoops Jones Jordan Keller Kick Koehler Lanese Lang Lipps Manchester Manning, D. McClain Merrin Oelslager Perales Plummer Powell Reineke Richardson Riedel Roemer Romanchuk Ryan Schaffer Scherer Seitz Smith, R. Smith, T. Stein Stoltzfus Vitale Wiggam Wilkin Zeltwanger Householder-58

Those who voted in the negative were: Representatives

Boggs Boyd Brent Brown Cera Clites Crawley Crossman Denson Galonski Hicks-Hudson Holmes, G. Howse Ingram Kelly Kent LaTourette Leland Lepore-Hagan Lightbody Liston Manning, G. Miller, A. Miller, J. Miranda O'Brien Patterson Rogers Russo Sheehy Skindell Smith, K. Sobecki Strahorn Sweeney Sykes Upchurch West-38

The motion to amend was laid on the table.

Let me reiterate:

  • It was already legal in Ohio for men to rape their wife if she's drunk, drugged, unconscious or mentally incapacitated.
  • It's no illegal in Ohio for a woman to have an abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected...which is often before she even knows she's pregnant.
  • This means that as of today, in Ohio, a married man can legally drug his wife, rape her and impregnate her...and if she doesn't happen to discover she's pregnant and have an abortion within the next six weeks, she's legally required to carry her rapist's fetus to term and give birth.

Most mind-boggling of all? Six of the Republicans who voted to keep allowing men to rape their wives are women.

Here's the full list of the 58 "Yes" votes, with their districts (two Republican women voted No, and it looks like one Republican man didn't vote at all):

I have nothing snarky to add to this.


          Bernie definitively answers the question: Yes, MFA would "reduce Blue Cross to nose jobs" (and that's the point)      Comment   Translate Page      

 

Over the past month or two, I've written a couple of pieces which explored the whole "MFA would eliminate private health insurance" issue.

My main point was that while most MFA activists have long insisted that eliminating (or virtually eliminating) private health insurance companies is not only a feature but the entire point of moving to single payer, ever since Kamala Harris walked back her “get rid of all that!” comment in a CNN Town Hall the next day, I’ve seen some MFA activists fall all over themselves to suddenly insist that “no, no...there’d still be plenty of room for private insurance, really!”

This refers to the fact that the MFA bills (in both the House and Senate) do allow for private coverage of anything which isn’t covered by MFA itself...basically, supplemental coverage of things like elective procedures, experimental drugs, enhanced services (private hospital rooms? upgraded wheelchair models? etc) and so forth. However, how wide a range of services that would include has always been a bit fuzzy.

For example, the MFA language states that hospitalization would be “comprehensively” covered...but doesn’t list any limits on hospital days, for instance. It doesn’t clarify whether “comprehensive” coverage of medical devices includes the bare bones model or the enhanced one with digital readout and built-in wi-fi. Most of those specifications would be left up to the HHS Secretary and/or a board of some sort to determine. Whatever they come up with, presumably private supplemental insurance could cover the rest.

I whipped up this table which I believe is a fairly accurate depiction of what the House/Senate MFA bills would cover or not cover. As you can see, caveats above aside, it doesn’t leave much room...and again, that was kind of the point:

And yet, some still argued with me about this.

It's important to understand that I'm not making a value judgment about whether eliminating private health insurance companies is a good or bad thing--I just wanted MFA die-hard supporters to make it clear what the official stance on the issue is.

Well, guess what?

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said private health insurance companies would be reduced to covering cosmetic surgery under his vision of a "Medicare for all" program.

..."What happens to those insurance companies after your plan is implemented?" O'Keefe asked.

"If you want cosmetic surgery—under Medicare for all, we cover all basic health care need—I suppose if you want to make yourself look a little bit more beautiful, work on that nose or your ears, they can do that," Sanders said.

"So basically BlueCross BlueShield would be reduced to nose jobs," O'Keefe said.

"Something like that, yeah," Sanders said.

Before anyone start screaming at me for linking to Free Beacon (a conservative site), note that the link was provided to me by a staunch MFA advocate, and the exchange and quotes above are 100% in context.

So there you have it: For good or for bad, under the House/Senate Medicare for All bills, Bernie Sanders himself says that private health insurance companies would indeed be reduced to a pathetic shadow of their former selves. Glad we cleared that up.

Cell-intrinsic depletion of Aml1-ETO-expressing pre-leukemic hematopoietic stem cells by K-Ras activating mutation.

Haematologica. 2019 Apr 11;:

Authors: Di Genua C, Norfo R, Rodriguez-Meira A, Wen WX, Drissen R, Booth CAG, Povinelli B, Repapi E, Gray N, Carrelha J, Kettyle LM, Jamieson L, Neo WH, Thongjuea S, Nerlov C, Mead AJ

Abstract
Somatic mutations in acute myeloid leukemia are acquired sequentially and hierarchically. First, pre-leukemic mutations, such as t(8;21) that encodes AML1-ETO, are acquired within the hematopoietic stem cell compartment, while signaling pathway mutations, including K-RAS activating mutations, are late events acquired during transformation of leukemic progenitor cells and rarely detectable in hematopoietic stem cells. This raises the possibility that signaling pathway mutations are detrimental to clonal expansion of pre-leukemic hematopoietic stem cells. To address this hypothesis, we here used conditional genetics to introduce Aml1-ETO and K-RasG12D into murine hematopoietic stem cells, either individually or in combination. In the absence of activated Ras, Aml1-ETO-expressing hematopoietic stem cells conferred a competitive advantage. However, activated K-Ras had a marked detrimental effect on Aml1-ETO-expressing hematopoietic stem cells, leading to loss of both phenotypic and functional hematopoietic stem cells. Cell cycle analysis revealed a loss of quiescence in hematopoietic stem cells co-expressing Aml1-ETO and K-RasG12D, accompanied by an enrichment in E2F and Myc target gene expression and depletion of hematopoietic stem cell self-renewal-associated gene expression. These findings provide a mechanistic basis for the observed absence of KRAS signaling mutations in the pre-malignant hematopoietic stem cell compartment.

Homoharringtonine exhibits potent anti-tumor effect and modulates DNA epigenome in acute myeloid leukemia by targeting SP1/TET1/5hmC.

Haematologica. 2019 Apr 11;:

Authors: Li C, Dong L, Su R, Bi Y, Qing Y, Deng X, Zhou Y, Hu C, Yu M, Huang H, Jiang X, Li X, He X, Zou D, Shen C, Han L, Sun M, Skibbe J, Ferchen K, Qin X, Weng H, Huang H, Song C, Chen J, Jin J

Abstract
Homoharringtonine, a plant alkaloid, has been reported to suppress protein synthesis and approved by U.S. Food and Drug Administration for chronic myeloid leukemia treatment. Here we show that homoharringtonine also potently inhibits cell growth/viability and induces cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in acute myeloid leukemia, and significantly inhibits acute myeloid leukemia progression in vivo and substantially prolongs survival of mice bearing murine or human acute myeloid leukemia. Strikingly, homoharringtonine treatment dramatically decreases global DNA 5-hydroxymethylcytosine abundance through targeting the SP1/TET1 axis, and TET1 depletion mimics homoharringtonine's therapeutic effects in acute myeloid leukemia. Our further 5hmC-seq and RNA-seq analyses, followed by a series of validation and functional studies, suggest that FLT3 is a critical down-stream target of the homoharringtonine/SP1/TET1/5hmC signaling, and suppression of FLT3 and its downstream targets (e.g., MYC) contributes to the high sensitivity of FLT3-mutated acute myeloid leukemia cells to homoharringtonine. Collectively, our studies uncover a previously unappreciated, DNA epigenome-related mechanism underlying the potent antileukemic effect of homoharringtonine, which involves suppression of the SP1/TET1/5hmC/FLT3/MYC signaling pathways in acute myeloid leukemia. Our work also highlights the particular promise of clinical application of homoharringtonine to treat human acute myeloid leukemia with FLT3 mutations, which accounts for more than 30% of total acute myeloid leukemia cases.

FLT3/ITD cooperates with Rac1 to modulate the sensitivity of leukemic cells to chemotherapeutic agents via regulation of DNA repair pathways.

Haematologica. 2019 Apr 11;:

Authors: Wu M, Li L, Hamaker M, Small D, Duffield AS

Abstract
Acute myeloid leukemia is an aggressive hematologic neoplasm, and patients with an ITD mutation of the FLT3 receptor gene have a poor prognosis. FLT3/ITD interacts with DOCK2, a G effector protein that activates Rac1/2. Previously, we showed that knockdown of DOCK2 leads to decreased survival of FLT3/ITD leukemic cells. We further investigated the mechanisms by which Rac1/DOCK2 activity affects cell survival and chemotherapeutic response in FLT3/ITD leukemic cells. Exogenous expression of FLT3/ITD leads to increased Rac1 activity, reactive oxygen species, phosphorylated STAT5, DNA damage response factors and cytarabine resistance. Conversely, DOCK2 knockdown resulted in a decrease in these factors. Consistent with the reduction in DNA damage response factors, FLT3/ITD cells with DOCK2 knockdown exhibited significantly increased sensitivity to DNA damage response inhibitors. Moreover, in a mouse model of FLT3/ITD acute myeloid leukemia, treatment with the CHK1 inhibitor MK8776 + cytarabine extended survival over cytarabine alone. These findings suggest that FLT3/ITD and Rac1 activity cooperatively modulate DNA repair activity, the addition of DNA damage response inhibitors to conventional chemotherapy may be useful in the treatment of FLT3/ITD acute myeloid leukemia, and inhibition of the Rac signaling pathways via DOCK2 may provide a novel and promising therapeutic target for FLT3/ITD acute myeloid leukemia.

          Perchè prezzo Bitcoin può salire (davvero) fino a 20000 dollari?      Comment   Translate Page      
Oggettvamente c'era da aspettarselo. Il recente recente rally del prezzo del Bitcoin ha determinato il ritorno dell'entusiasmo su tutte le criptovalute. Mentre oggi il BTCUSD si attesta attorno a quota 5000 con un ribasso del 3,11 per cento, gli investitori di chiedono se, dopo la cavalcata da 4000 dollari ad oltre 5000 USD, ci sia ancora lo spazio per un apprezzamento dei valori. La domanda che tutti si pongono è la seguente: il prezzo del Bitcoin salirà ancora oppure è pronto un ritracciamento dei valori? Alla luce di tale interrogativo è abbastanza intuitivo capire che nel presente post si parlerà proprio di previsioni Bitcoin. Più precisamente l'attenzione sarà focalizzata su quelle stime che vedono la quotazione BTC a quota 20mila dollari nei prossimi anni. E' davvero possibile che BTCUSD possa aggiornare i suoi stessi massimi storici? Il gestore di Crypto fund Brian Kelly è stato intervistato dalla CNBC proprio su questione. Cogliendo al balzo la palla fornita dal recente apprezzamento del BTC (+30 per cento da inizio aprile ad oggi), il gestore ha spiegato i motivi per i quali ritiene possa essere possibile una salita del Bitcoin ad oltre 20mila dollari.  Precisiamo subito che a differenza di tutte le previsioni per tori scatenati che riguardano il Bitcoin ma anche tutte le altre criptovalute, le stime di Kelly sono profondamente ancorate alla reatà. Non siamo quindi nel ramo del quasi impossibile ma nell'ambito del poco probabile ma comunque non da escludere. Diciamo questo perchè è lo stesso gestore ad affermare che affinchè BTCUSD torni verso i 20000 sarà necessario attendere ed avere pazienza. Vedere la quotazione Bitcoin a 20000 dollari, ha affermato Kelly, non sarà un gioco da ragazzi. L'analista ha però poi precisato che "senza dubbio" il prezzo del Bitcoin raggiungerà questo target nel "prossimo ciclo" specificando poi di parlare "probabilmente di un ciclo di due anni." Sarà quindi necessario un pà di tempo ma BTCUSD potrebbe davvero arrivare ai nuovi massimi. Kelly, nel corso dell'intervista, ha poi chiarito che "il ciclo per bitcoin è di solito circa un anno prima fino a un anno dopo". Dalle parole del gestore, quindi, sembra dedursi che possa essere la stessa natura del Bitcoin a portare BTCUSD verso i 20000. Certamente accorrerà avere pazienza per il raggiugimento di tale traguardo ma varrà certamente la pena attendere. Gli investitori sono stati avvisati, ora sta a loro definire la migliore strategia trading alla luce di questa previsione.

Al momento, dall’osservazione dei grafici sembrano esserci nuove conferme rialziste per il cambio EUR/USD, con il cross che prosegue nel rimbalzo dopo il test del supporto di quota 1,118, incrociando a 1,126 la media mobile a 21 sessioni, spingendosi poi verso la media a 50 giorni passante a quota 1,129. Superata tale soglia, i successivi target del cambio sono in area 1,134/ 1 ,135 prima e in area 1,139 / 1,140 poi. Dunque, prospettive incoraggianti secondo gli analisti tecnici, e tutti gli investitori che cercheranno di monetizzare il cambio EUR/USD con posizioni call. Ricordate di fissare adeguati e congrui stop loss e take profit prima di aprire la posizione.

Target genes for plant productivity improvement.

J Biotechnol. 2019 Apr 09;:

Authors: Beatrycze N

Abstract
The use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides, as well as the development of high-yielding varieties enabled substantial increase in crop productivity during the 20th century. However, the increase in yield over the last two decades has been slower. It is thought that further improvement in productivity of the major crop species using traditional cultivation methods is limited. Therefore, the use of genetic engineering seems to be a promising approach. There is ongoing research concerning genes that have an impact on plant growth, development and yield. The proteins and miRNAs encoded by these genes participate in a variety of processes, such as growth regulation, assimilate transport and partitioning as well as macronutrient uptake and metabolism. This paper presents the major directions in research concerning genes that may be targets of genetic engineering aimed to improve plant productivity.

MicroRNA-31-3p Is Involved in Substance P (SP)-Associated Inflammation in Human Colonic Epithelial Cells and Experimental Colitis.

Am J Pathol. 2018 03;188(3):586-599

Authors: Fang K, Law IKM, Padua D, Sideri A, Huang V, Kevil CG, Iliopoulos D, Pothoulakis C

Abstract
Substance P (SP) mediates colitis. SP signaling regulates the expression of several miRNAs, including miR-31-3p, in human colonocytes. However, the role of miR-31-3p in colitis and the underlying mechanisms has not been elucidated. We performed real-time PCR analysis of miR-31-3p expression in human colonic epithelial cells overexpressing neurokinin-1 receptor (NCM460 NK-1R) in response to SP stimulation and in NCM460 cells after IL-6, IL8, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, and interferon-γ exposure. Functions of miR-31-3p were tested in NCM460-NK-1R cells and the trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS) and dextran sodium sulfate (DSS) models of colitis. Targets of miRNA-31-3p were confirmed by Western blot analysis and luciferase reporter assay. Jun N-terminal kinase inhibition decreased SP-induced miR-31-3p expression. miR-31-3p expression was increased in both TNBS- and DSS-induced colitis and human colonic biopsies from ulcerative colitis, compared with controls. Intracolonic administration of a miR-31-3p chemical inhibitor exacerbated TNBS- and DSS-induced colitis and increased colonic TNF-α, CXCL10, and chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 2 (CCL2) mRNA expression. Conversely, overexpression of miR-31-3p ameliorated the severity of DSS-induced colitis. Bioinformatic, luciferase reporter assay, and Western blot analyses identified RhoA as a target of miR-31-3p in NCM460 cells. Constitutive activation of RhoA led to increased expression of CCL2, IL6, TNF-α, and CXCL10 in NCM460-NK-1R cells on SP stimulation. Our results reveal a novel SP-miR-31-3p-RhoA pathway that protects from colitis. The use of miR-31-3p mimics may be a promising approach for colitis treatment.

Fibrosis in Preeclamptic Placentas Is Associated with Stromal Fibroblasts Activated by the Transforming Growth Factor-β1 Signaling Pathway.

Am J Pathol. 2018 03;188(3):683-695

Authors: Ohmaru-Nakanishi T, Asanoma K, Fujikawa M, Fujita Y, Yagi H, Onoyama I, Hidaka N, Sonoda K, Kato K

Abstract
Although fibrosis is one of the most prominent pathologic features of preeclamptic (PE) placentas, its mechanism remains largely unknown. Consistent with previous reports, we observed overexpression of collagen; actin, α2, smooth muscle, aorta; connective tissue growth factor; and fibronectin in PE placentas compared with control ones. To investigate the mechanism of fibrosis in PE placentas, placental fibroblasts were isolated from PE placentas or normal pregnancies at delivery. The expression of fibrosis-related factors in fibroblasts was evaluated by real-time RT-PCR, Western blotting, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and gene microarrays. An in vitro collagen gel contraction assay was also performed. Fibroblasts isolated from PE placentas showed higher expression levels of fibrosis-related factors compared with those from control ones. Global gene expression profiling of PE fibroblasts was contrasted with that of control ones and indicated an intimate association with transforming growth factor-β1 (TGFB1) signaling. Furthermore, the PE fibroblasts expressed abundant phosphorylated SMAD family member 2 and showed higher expression levels of target genes of TGFB1 signaling compared with the control ones. The PE fibroblasts also had a greater ability to contract compared with the control ones. Contractility also depended on TGFB1 signaling. Our results suggest that TGFB1 signaling is activated in the fibroblasts in PE placentas and that these active fibroblasts contribute to fibrosis.

miRNAs as Biomarkers for Predicting the Progression of Ductal Carcinoma in Situ.

Am J Pathol. 2018 03;188(3):542-549

Authors: Hannafon BN, Ding WQ

Abstract
Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is defined as a proliferation of neoplastic cells within the duct of the mammary gland that have not invaded into the surrounding stroma. DCIS is considered a precursor to invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC); however, approximately half of DCIS may progress to IDC, if left untreated. Current research has shown that the genomic and transcriptomic changes are present in DCIS before the emergence of invasive disease, indicating that the malignant nature of the DCIS is defined before invasion. However, important questions remain surrounding the specific changes and processes required for malignant progression and identification of prognostic indicators of aggressiveness. miRNAs are small regulatory RNAs that can modulate gene expression by complementary binding to target mRNAs and inducing translational repression and/or mRNA degradation. In the past decade, research has shown that miRNA expression is dysregulated in IDC and that these changes are already present at the DCIS stage. Therefore, changes in miRNA expression may provide the necessary information to identify a clinical indicator of the aggressiveness of DCIS. Herein, we review the miRNA signatures identified in DCIS, describe how these signatures may be used to predict the aggressiveness of DCIS, and discuss future perspectives for DCIS biomarker discovery.

          AOC hit with brutal backlash for using Holocaust to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar, bash President Trump      Comment   Translate Page      


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) ignited outrage Friday after she used a poem about the Holocaust to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota Democrat who is embroiled in controversy herself.

What happened?

On Friday, President Donald Trump tweeted a video criticizing Omar for referring to the Islamic terrorists who attacked the United States on Sept. 11, 2001 as "some people who did something." The video spliced together Omar's controversial comments with footage from 9/11.

In response, Ocasio-Cortez urged members of Congress to condemn Trump for "dangerous targeting" of Omar.

"Members of Congress have a duty to respond to the President's explicit attack today.@IlhanMN's life is in danger. For our colleagues to be silent is to be complicit in the outright, dangerous targeting of a member of Congress," Ocasio-Cortez said.

With her tweet, Ocasio-Cortez included a picture of the famous poem from German theologian Martin Niemöller, who was imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps from 1938-1945 for opposing Hitler's Nazi regime. Niemöller only narrowly escaped execution.

The poem, which is mounted on a wall at the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., reads:

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

What was the reaction?

Ben Shapiro — who is the biggest target of anti-Semitism online, according to the Anti-Defamation League — condemned Ocasio-Cortez's "deeply disturbing" comparison.

Others echoed Shapiro's sentiments:

          Selectors targetting problem!      Comment   Translate Page      

Greetings everyone. I'm having a hard time finding the right selector (element class name) so I can properly target it in css.

I'm using a module called field formatter  class which made it better! Still, it is not enough because some times one has to target the parent div to change any aspects of it (for instance width so that there more available space in a row for other elements to follow).

The way I'm doing is by inspecting the html code and then searching for the right element.

In this specific case I need it because as you can´t see I want to place several elements in the same row.

On the left side a Juicebox Gallery, in the center the text group (title+ref label and field+description+price label and field) and in the right the form.

The thing is I don't have enough space in the row to fit all these elements due to the marked element (see picture) DIV which is really wide. I want to target it with css but can't find the right selector!

See the image below for better understanding:

          Fca vede rosa e torna ai dividendi      Comment   Translate Page      

Un gruppo "forte e in salute", pronto "a giocare il proprio ruolo" nello sviluppo del settore auto, e con l'intenzione di rendere il ritorno al dividendo "strutturale" negli anni a venire. Questo il ritratto del gruppo Fiat Chrysler delineato dal presidente John Elkann e dall'ad Mike Manley, che oggi ha debuttato - in maniche di camicia - al posto che fu di Sergio Marchionne, al tradizionale appuntamento dell'assemblea primaverile di bilancio.

Elkann ha iniziato ribadendo come in passato l'impegno "di lungo termine e per la stabilità" da parte della propria famiglia nell'azionariato di Fca: "Abbiamo accompagnato l'evoluzione della società negli ultimi 120 anni, ci siamo stati nei momenti più belli e in quelli difficili e continueremo a farlo".

Fiat Chrysler, annuncia "non è mai stata più forte e così in salute come oggi. Il suo bilancio ci consente di fare gli investimenti opportuni e al contempo di remunerare i nostri azionisti con i dividendi".

Proprio il ritorno al dividendo, 0,65 euro per azione, dopo dieci anni di digiuno, e anzi la prima cedola da quando esiste il gruppo Fiat Chrysler, ha catalizzato l'attenzione dell'assemblea.

"La nostra intenzione è che diventi strutturale"ha promesso Manley, mentre Elkann ha precisato che "non sarà un importo fisso ma legato ai nostri utili netti, sarà in proporzione di quelli".

Di dividendo, straordinario questa volta, si tornerà a parlare già nei prossimi mesi, in seguito alla vendita della Marelli.

Manley ha confermato che il closing avverrà entro il primo semestre per una cifra vicina ai6 miliardi e che a seguire il board approverà una maxi cedola da 2 miliardi di euro.

Di alleanze non si parla

Non si è parlato invece di alleanze nel settore auto. I piccoli azionisti non hanno sollevato il tema e i vertici non hanno affrontato la questione, con Elkann che è volato alto: "I prossimi 20 anni per l'auto saranno vivaci e ricchi di novità come lo furono i primi 20. Oggi stiamo vivendo una nuova fase di profondo mutamento creativo e di fermento tecnologico. Siamo pronti a costruire questo futuro, con tecnologie utili e a prezzi accessibili. Siamo pronti a giocare il nostro ruolo in questa nuova ed entusiasmante era dell'industria dell'auto. Come in passato, siamo preparati a prendere decisioni e ad agire con coraggio e creatività, per costruire un futuro solido e ricco di opportunità per Fca".

Quanto al 2019, Manley si è dichiarato "fiducioso" nel raggiungimento dei target per il 2019, e che "i risultati operativi saranno superiori a quelli record del 2018".

Nell'area Nafta i risultati saranno dapprima in calo poi in ripresa, per Maserati è prevista una flessione nella prima metà, nell'area Emea le azioni intraprese spiegheranno i loro effetti durante l'anno con pieni benefici nel 2020.

In sintesi, afferma Elkann, "ci aspettiamo un significativo miglioramento nel secondo semestre".

Confermati gli investimenti per "oltre 5 miliardi" di euro in Italia nell'arco di piano al 2022, che serviranno tra l'altro agli investimenti per la seconda generazione della 500 Bev elettrica.

Vertici abbottonati poi sull'accordo tra Fca e Tesla sull'acquisto da parte del Lingotto dei crediti per le emissioni zero.

"E' un accordo pluriennale - precisa solo Manley -ma mi rifiuto di svelarne i costi, perché sono dati che non vanno divulgati, vanno tenuti all'interno dell'azienda per proteggere questa intesa".

L'assemblea di Fca ha approvato il bilancio 2018, chiuso con un utile di 3,6 miliardi di euro, e ha rinominato i consiglieri del gruppo, con la novità della nomina in cda del direttore finanziario Richard Palmer, che sarà consigliere esecutivo.

"E' consuetudine che chi riveste la posizione di direttore finanziario sia anche consigliere - ha spiegato Elkann - Palmer è in Fca da anni, parlando con Manley abbiamo pensato che fosse un valore aggiunto averlo in consiglio. Lui ha allargato le competenze, sta seguendo una serie di attività, è un valore per l'azienda e un rafforzamento per il board, siamo contenti per questa opportunità di eleggerlo in consiglio".

          Final stats, top performers from Missouri’s spring game      Comment   Translate Page      
In a ho-hum afternoon, these were some noticeable performances. Missouri’s 2019 spring game was a low-scoring affair with only one touchdown — a Larry Rountree rush — through three quarters. Still, there were some good performances and pleasant surprises from the XX-XX starters’ win over the reserves. WR Barrett Bannister: 8 catches, 73 yards Bannister surely got more reps because Johnathon Johnson was held out of action, but the walk-on-turned-starter impressed and was a top target — along with Johnathan Nance — for new quarterback Kelly Bryant. Bannister looked especially adept at finding space when Bryant rolled out of the pocket. Johnson is still going to be the starter at the slot, but Bannister is more than just a feel-good story. He’s going to be a real asset for this team this season. WR Johnathan Nance: 3 catches, 48 yards Nance didn’t make an impact everytime he was on the field, but he had a run late in the first quarter in which he showed his chemistry with Bryant. Nance’s best play was when he b

          Styling Windows Phone Silverlight Applications      Comment   Translate Page      

Originally posted on: http://maxblogson.net/archive/2011/11/10/styling-windows-phone-silverlight-applications.aspx

If you have not developed with styles in Silverlight/XAML then it can be challenging and resources can be sparse depending on how deep you get.  One thing that you need to understand is what level you can apply styles and how much they can cascade.  What I am finding is that this doesn’t go to the level that we are used to in HTML and CSS.

While styles can be defined at a page level if you want to share styles throughout your application they should be defined in the App.xaml file.  This is of course analogous to placing a style in your HTML file versus an external CSS file.  This is the type of style I will concentrate on in this post.

The first thing to look it how styles associate to elements.  TargetType defines the object type that your style will apply to.  In the example below the style is targeting the TextBlock object type.

<Style x:Key="TextBlockSmallGray" TargetType="TextBlock">

Next we use a Setter which allows you to apply values for specific attributes of the target object type.  The setters can be a simple value or complex.  The first example here is simply applying a color to the background property of the target.

<Setter Property="Background" Value="White"/>

The second setter example here is for the same property, but we are applying a the definition of a LinearGradientBrush.

<Setter Property="Background">
<Setter.Value>
<LinearGradientBrush>
<GradientStop Offset="0" Color="Black"/>
<GradientStop Offset="1" Color="White"/>
</LinearGradientBrush>
</Setter.Value>
</Setter>

The last thing I want to cover here is that you can leverage the system styles and then override or extend them.  The BasedOn attribute of the Style tag allows this sort of inheritance.  In the example below I am going to start with the PhoneTextTitleStyle and then override properties as needed.

<Style x:Key="TextBlockTitle" BasedOn="{StaticResource PhoneTextTitle1Style}" TargetType="TextBlock">

So now that we have our styles defined applying it is fairly straight forward.  Add the style name as a static resource to the style property of the element in your page and off you go.

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Style="{StaticResource PageGridStyle}">

So this is one step in creating consistency in your application’s look.  In future posts I will dig a little deeper.

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

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

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

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

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



Background

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Vegetarian Diet and Adiposity

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

Vegetarian Diet, Adiposity, and Inflammatory Markers

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

An interesting mobile app design case study by Yaroslav Lozovoi, a UI/UX designer based in Odessa, Ukraine. He shared on Behance about a concept of a NYC Taxi App, we are commonly used to the Uber experience but how about for cab drivers? Following his design process from research to the UI design, he also has done a tremendous job at building the presentation as well. 2 more points on the presentation! On the actual work, I can feel some patterns from Uber but I just love the thinking behind the "advanced search", it's intuitive and on point on the user goal. Hope you will like this case study!

Hi mates! Some time ago I worked on a taxi application and was inspired to make my own one. I made some research and interviewed a target audience to be able to create a useful and comfortable product that corresponds to all user's needs. Advice and opinions are welcome :)

          Unknown Command Error using NI-VISA to communcate with a 3rd Party Hardware by Ethernet connection      Comment   Translate Page      

Hello,

 

We are trying to control a 3rd Party Hardware using NI-VISA. The charge has a driver, however in our application we want to deploy a VI in a RT Target (in this case a PXI) and, following a NI suggestion, is better to use NI-VISA (see "IVI Driver for 3rd Party Hardware"  in [1]).

 

The charge is controlled by Ethernet Connection and we get to established a connection without problems following the tutorial presented in [2]. The problem starts when we try to test commands. When we open NI-VISA Test Panel (in NI MAX) we get to make a query unsing "*IDN?\n" command, but any order command gives "Error: Unknown Command" response.

 

After this error appears the first time even "*IDN?\n" stops working giving the same response "Error: Unknown Command" when we use query.

 

The same error happens when we try to control the 3rd party hardware direct using a VI in LabView and the "*IDN?\n" command does not work a single time when executed by this VI. A print of the VI mentioned in this paragraph is anexed.

          Finding Symlinks by Name      Comment   Translate Page      
Hi all. Happy Saturday. I've just started to dig into Alfred for things beyond launching apps. I've got a bunch of randomly-named files that I symlink into a "quick access" directory: $ ls Quick Example.txt -> ../entries/B9K0EP7C5B1W6KF30S3C.txt Foo.txt -> ../entries/HPE1MMGUHFU3KS13TD6K.txt Alfred can easily find these files by the "long" name/symlink-target (B9K0...) but not by the short/symlink name (Example.txt). I want to be able to find 'B9K0EP7C5B1W6KF30S3C.txt' by searching for 'Example.txt'. Other posts mention this in the context of applications installed by `brew cask` and the like, but I would like to be able to search for symlinks by their names (I guess not have Alfred follow symlinks before indexing their names). Am I out of luck on a simple way to accomplish this? I'm handy with code and could start to create my own workflow for this but it seems like it may be a common thing? Maybe there's an existing workflow I could use? I searched for a good 10 minutes before posting but apologies if this is covered elsewhere. Appreciate any input.

          Customer expectations of gold colour      Comment   Translate Page      

I worked at a mom-pop jewelry store for a bit as a sales person. YMMY, but the vast majority of our customers wanted & purchased white gold (rhodium plated of course).

As far as yellow gold, I would say 95% of our customers couldn’t tell the different between 14k, 18k or 10k yellow gold; they shopped by the price point. When customers would bring in their jewelry to sell for cash, explaining to them how the spot price is not what you get for your gold jewelry and what those numbers mean on the piece, was the first time they were educated on what an alloy is and all the nuances of alloys.

It really depends on who your target customers are, where you are selling and what you want to do artistically as a jeweler.

          Jack Harrison’s flawless finish gives Leeds victory over Sheffield Wednesday      Comment   Translate Page      

Leeds returned to second as the cat-and-mouse dynamic at the top of the Championship continues. Jack Harrison’s fourth goal of the season was enough to yield victory but on another day Marcelo Bielsa’s side – who racked up 28 shots but only six on target – could have steamrollered to victory over Sheffield Wednesday in a Yorkshire derby played at a frenetic pace from start to finish.

Leeds’ gusto simply blew Wednesday away, while a superb goalkeeping performance by Keiren Westwood kept a hungry home side at bay until midway through the second half, when Harrison applied a classy first-time finish. With four games to play, Leeds are back in the driving seat for the second automatic place, three points clear of Sheffield United though three behind the leaders, Norwich, who visit Wigan for their game in hand on Sunday.

          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.
          Ιταλία, το κουτί της Πανδώρας      Comment   Translate Page      

Η νούμερο ένα απειλή για την Ευρωζώνη και την ΕΕ δεν είναι το BREXIT, οι αμερικανικοί δασμοί ή/και η Κίνα – αλλά η τρίτη μεγαλύτερη οικονομία της που είναι υπερχρεωμένη και καταδικασμένη σε μία κατάσταση μόνιμης παρακμής με ορίζοντα μία ελληνικού τύπου χρεοκοπία (PSI), από την οποία είναι αδύνατον να ξεφύγει παραμένοντας πιστή στην πολιτική λιτότητας.

.
«Η Ιταλία, υπογράφοντας τη συμφωνία του Μάαστριχτ του 1992 και τηρώντας την πιστά σε αντίθεση με τη Γερμανία και με τη Γαλλία, αυτοκτόνησε – χωρίς δυστυχώς να το έχουν ακόμη συνειδητοποιήσει ούτε οι κυβερνήσεις της, ούτε η Ευρωζώνη».

Από: analyst.gr - Βασίλης Βιλιάρδος

Ανάλυση


Το ΒΡΕΧΙΤ δεν αναβλήθηκε τυχαία από την ΕΕ, εάν υποθέσουμε πως πράγματι θα συμβεί αφού θα ήταν σίγουρα αρνητικό τόσο για τη Μ. Βρετανία, όσο και για την Ευρώπη – ιδίως για τη Γερμανία και τη Γαλλία. Η βασική αιτία είναι οι κίνδυνοι που προβλέπονται για την ήπειρο μας, από την πλευρά των Η.Π.Α. και των δασμών που θέλουν να επιβάλλουν, καθώς επίσης από την Κίνα που προσπαθεί να αντικαταστήσει ένα μέρος των αμερικανικών εξαγωγών της με ευρωπαϊκές – στηρίζοντας την ανάπτυξη της στο δρόμο του μεταξιού με τα έργα υποδομής που ήδη έχει δρομολογήσει.

Η μεγαλύτερη απειλή όμως ευρίσκεται στο εσωτερικό της και έχει σχέση με την Ιταλία (ανάλυση) – η οποία ήταν η πρώτη χώρα των G7 που ανέβηκε στο άρμα της Κίνας, ελπίζοντας πως έτσι θα επιλύσει τα χρόνια προβλήματα της οικονομίας της. Μπορεί δε αρκετοί να αμφιβάλλουν για τις δυνατότητες της Κίνας, λόγω των οικονομικών της δυσχερειών (υπερχρέωση των επιχειρήσεων της, φούσκα στην αγορά ακινήτων κλπ.), αλλά η χώρα διαθέτει πολλά όπλα -, όπως συναλλαγματικά αποθέματα της τάξης των 3 τρις $ και σχέδιο για τη μελλοντική της ανάπτυξη.

Ειδικά όσον αφορά την Ιταλία, έχει βυθιστεί για τρίτη φορά μέσα σε μία δεκαετία στην ύφεση – ενώ τόσο ο ΟΟΣΑ, όσο και η ΕΚΤ μείωσαν τις προβλέψεις τους για το ρυθμό ανάπτυξης της σε αρνητικές, με την ΕΚΤ να αναβιώνει προληπτικά το πρόγραμμα αγορών κρατικών ομολόγων που είχε πρόσφατα περιορίσει. Εκτός αυτού ο υπουργός οικονομικών της Γαλλίας δήλωσε ότι, τυχόν συνέχιση της ιταλικής ύφεσης θα είχε σημαντικό αντίκτυπο στην ανάπτυξη της Ευρώπης – ενώ θα μπορούσε να επηρεάσει σοβαρά τη Γαλλία, επειδή είναι ένας από τους σημαντικότερους εμπορικούς εταίρους της. Ακόμη πιο σημαντικές όμως θα ήταν οι συνέπειες στο χρηματοπιστωτικό τομέα – αφού οι γαλλικές τράπεζες κατέχουν συνολικά (ομόλογα, παράγωγα, πιστωτικές δεσμεύσεις και εγγυήσεις) περί τα 385 δις € ιταλικού χρέους, ενώ οι γερμανικές σύμφωνα με την BIS 126 δις € στο τρίτο τρίμηνο του 2018.

Στα πλαίσια αυτά είναι απαραίτητο να κατανοήσει κανείς τις αιτίες, λόγω των οποίων δεν μπορεί να ξεφύγει η Ιταλία από την ύφεση – ειδικά όσον αφορά την Ελλάδα, η οποία φαίνεται πως οδηγείται στον ίδιο δρόμο από τη συνεχιζόμενη πολιτική των μνημονίων και τα υπέρογκα πρωτογενή πλεονάσματα που της έχουν επιβληθεί, με πρώτο καταστροφικό αποτέλεσμα το ανεξέλεγκτο πλέον κόκκινο ιδιωτικό της χρέος που έχει εκτοξευθεί στη στρατόσφαιρα. Εν προκειμένω, σύμφωνα με μία νέα μελέτη (S. Storm), η χώρα βιώνει μία διαρκή κρίση – η οποία χαρακτηρίζεται ως «κρίση του ιταλικού καπιταλισμού μετά τη συνθήκη του Μάαστριχτ».

Εξέλιξη κατά κεφαλήν ΑΕΠ της Ιταλίας


Ειδικότερα, έως τις αρχές της δεκαετίας του 1990, ο ρυθμός ανάπτυξης της ήταν πολύ ισχυρός – με αποτέλεσμα να καταφέρει να καλύψει την απόσταση που τη χώριζε από τα άλλα ανεπτυγμένα κράτη της Ευρωζώνης, όσον αφορά το κατά κεφαλήν ΑΕΠ. Στο γράφημα φαίνεται η εξέλιξη του κατά κεφαλήν ΑΕΠ της Ιταλίας σε σχέση με τη Γαλλία (μπλε καμπύλη), καθώς επίσης με τις τέσσερις κεντρικές οικονομίες (διακεκομμένη γραμμή) από το 1960 και μετά – σημειώνοντας πως ενώ το κατά κεφαλήν ΑΕΠ της Ιταλίας (σε σταθερές τιμές του 2010) ήταν στο 85% του γαλλικού και στο 74% των τεσσάρων (Βέλγιο, Γαλλία, Γερμανία, Ολλανδία), έως τα μέσα της δεκαετίας του 1990 είχε φτάσει στο 97% της Γαλλίας και στο 94% των τεσσάρων.

Αμέσως μετά όμως (από το 1996) ξεκίνησε να μειώνεται σταθερά, «σβήνοντας» πολλές δεκαετίες σύγκλισης – με αποτέλεσμα σήμερα να είναι στο 82% του γαλλικού, περισσότερο δηλαδή από ότι το 1960 και στο 76% των τεσσάρων. Έκτοτε όλοι οι βασικοί δείκτες της οικονομίας της (κατά κεφαλήν ΑΕΠ, παραγωγικότητα εργαζομένων, επενδύσεις, μερίδιο αγοράς στις εξαγωγές κλπ.) παρουσιάζουν μία συνεχή πτώση – ενώ αυτό που συνέβη τότε στην Ιταλία δεν ήταν άλλο από την υιοθέτηση της «νομικής και πολιτικής υπερκατασκευής» (legal and policy superstructure), η οποία επιβλήθηκε με τη συνθήκη του Μάαστριχτ το 1992.


Εξέλιξη επιτοκίων (αριστερά) και χρέους (δεξιά)


Μίας συνθήκης δηλαδή που καθόριζε το δρόμο για την ίδρυση της ΟΝΕ το 1999 και την εισαγωγή του ευρώ το 2002 – το οποίο αναγκάσθηκε να υιοθετήσει η Ιταλία λόγω του υψηλού δημοσίου χρέους της και των μεγάλων επιτοκίων που πλήρωνε (γράφημα) όπως η Ελλάδα (14% η Ιταλία, 25% η Ελλάδα), ενώ παραποίησε τα στοιχεία της λίγο πριν την είσοδο της στην Ευρωζώνη, επίσης όπως η Ελλάδα (ανάλυση). Το κακό με την Ιταλία ήταν όμως το γεγονός ότι, δεσμεύθηκε με τον πιο έντονο και συνεπή τρόπο στη δημοσιονομική λιτότητα, καθώς επίσης στις διαρθρωτικές μεταρρυθμίσεις που απαιτεί η συμφωνία της ΟΝΕ – πολύ περισσότερο από ότι η Γαλλία ή η Γερμανία, με αποτέλεσμα να το πληρώσει πανάκριβα. Δυστυχώς σχετικά ανάλογα λειτουργεί η σημερινή ελληνική κυβέρνηση, με τα θηριώδη πλεονάσματα που οδηγούν στην εξαθλίωση των Ελλήνων, με την ληστρική εισπρακτική πολιτική, με το ξεπούλημα των πάντων κοκ. – οπότε δεν θα αποφύγουμε μία πολύ μεγαλύτερη τραγωδία από τη σημερινή.
Επανερχόμενοι στην Ιταλία, η μόνιμη δημοσιονομική εξυγίανση, η συνεχής συγκράτηση των μισθών, η υπερτιμημένη συναλλαγματική της ισοτιμία κλπ. δολοφόνησαν τη ζήτηση – ενώ η έλλειψη ζήτησης μείωσε με τη σειρά της την παραγωγικότητα των εργαζομένων, τη βιομηχανική παραγωγή, τις θέσεις εργασίας και τα εισοδήματα, με αποτέλεσμα η οικονομία της να βαδίζει από το κακό στο χειρότερο.

Παρά το ότι λοιπόν (ή, καλύτερα, ακριβώς για αυτό) η Ιταλία ήταν η μοναδική χώρα της Ευρωζώνης που την περίοδο 1995-2008 είχε συνεχώς πρωτογενή πλεονάσματα της τάξης του 3% του ΑΕΠ ετήσια κατά μέσον όρο, ενώ η Γαλλία την ίδια περίοδο πρωτογενή ελλείμματα 0,1% του ΑΕΠ και η Γερμανία πρωτογενή πλεονάσματα 0,7% (από τη χρεοκοπημένη Ελλάδα σήμερα απαιτούνται 3,5%!), το δημόσιο χρέος της δεν μειώθηκε όπως υπολογιζόταν από το 117% του ΑΕΠ της το 1994 στο 77% το 2008 – επειδή ο ρυθμός ανάπτυξης της ήταν σταθερά χαμηλότερος από τα υψηλά ονομαστικά επιτόκια δανεισμού της.

Την περίοδο τώρα της κρίσης, από το 2008 έως το 2018, η Ιταλία συνέχισε να έχει πρωτογενή πλεονάσματα ύψους 1,3% του ΑΕΠ της κατά μέσον όρο – όταν η Γαλλία πρωτογενή ελλείμματα 2%. Έτσι η Ιταλία αποδέχτηκε μία «σωρευτική δημοσιονομική διαρροή», μία αφαίρεση δηλαδή της εγχώριας ζήτησης της ύψους 227 δις € – όταν η Γαλλία εφάρμοσε ακριβώς το αντίθετο, προσθέτοντας στην εγχώρια ζήτηση 461 δις € (=σωρευτικό δημοσιονομικό κίνητρο), πάντοτε σε σταθερές τιμές του 2010.

Το αποτέλεσμα ήταν να εκτιναχθεί το δημόσιο χρέος της πάνω από το 132% του ΑΕΠ της, να δημιουργηθούν προβλήματα στις τράπεζες της, να οφείλει στην ΕΚΤ πάνω από 480 δις € (Target 2) κλπ. – παρά το ότι οι κοινωνικές της δαπάνες ανά άτομο είναι περίπου στο 70% αυτών που ξοδεύουν η Γερμανία ή η Γαλλία για κάθε τους Πολίτη! Με δεδομένη δε την αντίδραση των κίτρινων γιλέκων στη Γαλλία, μπορεί κανείς εύκολα να καταλάβει τι θα συνέβαινε εάν μείωνε η κυβέρνηση της τις κοινωνικές δαπάνες ανά άτομο κατά 30% όπως η Ιταλία – ή εάν συνέχιζε να αφαιρεί ζήτηση της τάξης του 3,5% του ΑΕΠ της κάθε χρόνο, όπως η Ελλάδα (ανάλυση).

Η εγχείρηση πέτυχε, αλλά ο ασθενής πέθανε


Περαιτέρω, όταν η Ιταλία υπέγραψε τη Συνθήκη του Μάαστριχτ, θεωρήθηκαν ως τα σημαντικότερα προβλήματα της ο υψηλός πληθωρισμός και η ανεργία – ενώ ως αιτία του πληθωρισμού η υπερβολική δύναμη των εργατικών συνδικάτων της που οδηγούσε σε αυξήσεις των μισθών μεγαλύτερες της παραγωγικότητας των εργαζομένων της, με αποτέλεσμα να τίθεται σε λειτουργία ο φαύλος κύκλος μισθών-τιμών που πυροδοτεί των πληθωρισμό και πιέζει παράλληλα τα κέρδη των επιχειρήσεων. Έτσι κατηγορήθηκε ως υπεύθυνη της ανεργίας και του πληθωρισμού η άκαμπτη αγορά εργασίας της και η «εργατική αριστοκρατία», όπως της ΔΕΗ στην Ελλάδα – οπότε επιβλήθηκαν οι γνωστές «διαρθρωτικές μεταρρυθμίσεις» για τη συγκράτηση της ανόδου των μισθών.

Σε αντίθεση τώρα με τη Γαλλία, η Ιταλία δεν είχε κατώτατο νόμιμο μισθό, ούτε ένα αντίστοιχα γενναιόδωρο σύστημα επιδομάτων ανεργίας – αν και η προστασία των εργαζομένων για τους τακτικούς υπαλλήλους ήταν ανάλογη με αυτήν στη Γαλλία ή στη Γερμανία. Οι «διαρθρωτικές μεταρρυθμίσεις» που επιβλήθηκαν, οδήγησαν στη δραστική μείωση της προστασίας της απασχόλησης των προσωρινά εργαζομένων και στην αύξηση του ποσοστού τους – από το 10% την περίοδο 1991-1993 στο 18,5% το 2017. Έτσι από τα 2,5 εκ. νέες θέσεις εργασίας που δημιουργήθηκαν από το 1992 έως το 2008 (3,6 εκ. στη Γαλλία), το 73% ήταν ορισμένου χρόνου – ενώ μειώθηκε δραματικά η διαπραγματευτική ισχύς των συνδικάτων.

Εξέλιξη των ιταλικών μισθών συγκριτικά


Ως εκ τούτου, η αύξηση των πραγματικών μισθών των Ιταλών εργαζομένων ύψους 3,2% ετησίως κατά μέσον όρο από το 1960 έως το 1992, μειώθηκε στο 0,1% την περίοδο 1992-1999 και στο 0,6% την περίοδο 1999-2008. Για σύγκριση, από το 1992 έως το 2008 η μέση αύξηση των πραγματικών ιταλικών μισθών ήταν 0,35% ετησίως, των γερμανικών 0,4% και των γαλλικών 0,9% – ενώ στο γράφημα φαίνεται η σχέση του μέσου μισθού ενός Ιταλού σε σχέση με έναν Γάλλο, Γερμανό και των τεσσάρων του ευρωπαϊκού κέντρου.

Ειδικότερα, στις αρχές της δεκαετίας του 1960 ο μέσος μισθός των Ιταλών εργαζομένων ήτα στο 85% των Γάλλων, έχοντας αυξηθεί στο 92% το 1991 – ενώ το 2018 είχε σταδιακά μειωθεί στο 75%, πολύ χαμηλότερα από ότι το 1960. Τα αποτελέσματα αυτής της μείωσης ήταν (α) η πτώση του πληθωρισμού, από 9,6% ετησίως κατά μέσον όρο την περίοδο 1960-1992 στο 2,5% το 1999-2008 και 1,1% το 2008-2018 (β) η μείωση της ανεργίας από το 11% το 1995 στο 6,7% των 2008 (7,4% η Γαλλία και η Γερμανία το 2008) και (γ) η αύξηση του μεριδίου των κερδών των επιχειρήσεων στο ΑΕΠ, από 36% το 1991 σε 40% το 2008, μεγαλύτερο από αυτό της Γαλλίας ή της Γερμανίας.

Λογικά λοιπόν θα συμπέραινε κανείς πως με τη συγκράτηση των μισθών, με τη μείωση του πληθωρισμού, με την πτώση της ανεργίας και με τη σημαντική αύξηση των κερδών των επιχειρήσεων, η ιταλική οικονομία θα αναπτυσσόταν με υψηλούς ρυθμούς – κάτι που όμως δεν συνέβη, με αποτέλεσμα να λέγεται πως η εγχείρηση πέτυχε, αλλά ο ασθενής πέθανε. Η αιτία του θανάτου του πάντως ήταν η «διαρθρωτική έλλειψη συνολικής ζήτησης» – όπως αποδείχθηκε από τη νεκροψία.

Αναλυτικότερα, από το 3,3% ετησίως που αυξανόταν ετήσια η εγχώρια ζήτηση στην Ιταλία μεταξύ των ετών 1960 και 1992, περιορίσθηκε στο 0,25% από το 1992 έως το 2018 – έναντι 1,1% των χωρών της Ευρώπης των τεσσάρων. Παράλληλα μειώθηκε η πραγματική κατά κεφαλήν αύξηση των εξαγωγών της από 6,6% κατά μέσον όρο ετησίως (1960-1992) σε 3% (1992-2008) – με τελικό αποτέλεσμα να μειωθεί η χρήση του παραγωγικού της δυναμικού σε σχέση με τη Γερμανία, ιδίως στη μεταποίηση, από 110% το 1995 στο 63% το 2015. Ως εκ τούτου περιορίσθηκε το ποσοστό κέρδους της ιταλικής βιομηχανίας κατά 3-4% συγκριτικά με τη γερμανική και τη γαλλική, παρά το ότι η κερδοφορία τους αυξήθηκε σε σχέση με το ΑΕΠ – οπότε λογικά μειώθηκαν οι επενδύσεις.

Επίλογος


Συμπερασματικά λοιπόν η διαχρονική μείωση της ζήτησης που προκλήθηκε από τη διαρκή δημοσιονομική λιτότητα, από τη συγκράτηση των πραγματικών μισθών και από τη μείωση της τεχνολογικής ανταγωνιστικότητας λόγω του περιορισμού των επενδύσεων, σε συνδυασμό με τη δυσμενή συναλλαγματική ισοτιμία του «ιταλικού ευρώ» απέναντι στο γαλλικό ή γερμανικό (είναι υπερτιμημένο περίπου κατά 20% – μετρείται με τη συγκριτική ανταγωνιστικότητα), μείωσαν την ικανότητα των ιταλικών επιχειρήσεων να διατηρήσουν τα μερίδια αγοράς των εξαγωγών τους – οπότε τις καταδίκασαν, μαζί με την ιταλική οικονομία, σε μία κατάσταση μόνιμης παρακμής.

Το μεγάλο ερώτημα που τίθεται εδώ είναι βέβαια εάν μπορεί η Ιταλία να ξεφύγει από την παγίδα, στην οποία οδηγήθηκε μόνη της – ενώ εάν δεν συμβεί κάτι τέτοιο, τότε η Ευρωζώνη είναι καταδικασμένη να διαλυθεί. Για την Ελλάδα, την οποία θα έπρεπε να απασχολεί πολύ περισσότερο το ίδιο ερώτημα, η κατάσταση είναι κατά πολύ χειρότερη – αν και δεν κινδυνεύει πλέον από την οικονομία της το ευρώ. Εν προκειμένω, θα δοθούν απαντήσεις στο δεύτερο μέρος της ανάλυσης – θεωρώντας πολύ πιο σημαντικό το πρόβλημα της Ιταλίας, από όλα τα υπόλοιπα της Ευρώπης.

analytics5cb097c5a66aa.jpg

According to the daily time-frame, we found that the neckline at 111.82 from the inverted head and shoulders pattern got broken, which is sign that demand is in control. To confirm even more the breakout, we would like to see USD/JPY to trade at 112.30 before we buy. Support level is seen at the price of 110.85.

Trading recommendation: We are watching for buying USD/JPY if price trades above 112.30. Projected target is set at the price of 113.90.

          Euro rose from the ashes      Comment   Translate Page      

Despite all the attempts of Mario Draghi to drown the euro, EUR/USD bulls managed to finish the second week of April in the green zone. The vulnerability of the main competitor and positive news from China's inflation and the trade balance, as well as from European industrial production, allowed the main currency pair to consolidate above the base of the 13th figure. Buyers do not intend to stop, hinting that it is time to put an end to the upward trend in the USD index.

At a time when the US economy slows down and the Fed intends to keep the federal funds rate at least until the end of 2019 (according to a consensus assessment of the Wall Street Journal experts, it will not change until 2021), practically nothing depends on the US dollar. It is forced to go with the flow and react to the behavior of other currencies and central banks. In order to resume the normalization cycle, the Fed needs very strong statistics. And how to get it, if the effect of the fiscal stimulus disappears, and the IMF predicts a decline in US GDP growth rates to 2.3% (the Fed forecast + 2.1%). The White House still believes in magical + 3%, but this requires either a new tax reform, or a reanimation of QE, or a weak dollar. The latter option is perhaps the most realistic for Donald Trump, which reduces the risks of a large-scale trade war between the US and the EU because in this situation the USD index will go up again.

For a long time, "American" were afraid to sell because of the weakness of its competitors. Nevertheless, a positive from European business activity and industrial production returned interest in buying EUR/USD. If the economy of the currency bloc groped for the bottom, and the Chinese data would stretch a helping hand to it, then why not increase the share of the euro in investment portfolios? In this regard, the release of data on the GDP of China for the first quarter and for the indexes of purchasing managers in the eurozone in April can disperse the upward movement of the main currency pair. Unless, of course, there are no unpleasant surprises.

Dynamics of European business activity and GDP

One of them may come from the States, which intend to impose duties on imports of aircraft and other goods from the EU due to non-market subsidies to Airbus. There are rumors in the market about the start of a new trade war, but in fact, in this way, Donald Trump may push Brussels to negotiate the abolition of tariffs on industrial goods. If the parties agree, this will improve the position of international trade, and in fact, its slowdown, according to the IMF, has become the main brake on global GDP. The authoritative organization lowered the forecasts for economic growth in the eurozone from 1.6% to 1.3% in 2019, however, as often happens, the worse the estimate, the more reasons for joy if it is exceeded.

Technically, the second false breakdown of the lower limit of the medium-term consolidation range of 1.125-1.15 testifies to the weakness of the "bears" in EUR/USD. If the opponents manage to return the quotes to the middle of the trading channel and activate, thus, the "Deception-Release" pattern, the risks of continuing the rally in the direction of the "Wolfe waves#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F297880" target will increase.

Key short-term resistance is set at $1.310.00.

          A few Azure scaling thoughts      Comment   Translate Page      

Originally posted on: http://coolcat.de/archive/2013/02/16/a-few-azure-scaling-thoughts.aspx

A lot of noise around cloud and in particularly Microsoft Windows Azure is the ability to scale up or down at will. This is a very important aspect of the whole cloud story but it is also something that must be treated with respect.

Customers have been asking why Microsoft didn’t provide and automatic scaling feature and reason why not gives us an insight into the whole issue around scaling.

So when should we scale? The need to scale up and down comes in a number of forms or patterns. Simply put they can be considered to be either expected or unexpected. Unexpected patterns in load can be in bursts, ramps up or down or just completely random  fluctuations. Expected patterns are typically linked to events such as Christmas, tax submission day or times of the day such as lunch hour or straight after work. So should we scale for both?

Obviously the expected patterns are an obvious target for ‘controlled scaling’ or even some form of auto-scaling. The unexpected patterns are a different challenge all together. To decide we must understand the impact the challenge has on our application and why it could be a problem. If we consider typical cause this helps to give us a better idea. For instance a sudden burst in customer traffic to a web site might simply have been a random event such as an unexpected mention in a blog or twitter! In planning for this we have to be careful not to over-anticipate. If we are measuring a 2 or 3 fold increase in visits to our site shouldn’t necessarily mean we spin up loads more web instances.

For unexpected ‘bursts’ or increases the most sensible approach is to asses this over a period of time say 2 or 3 hours. Then we can consider the best way of acting. It could be spin up more web or simply invoke an asynchronous approach to ensure we process data in the down time rather than keeping the user waiting. 

Finally, having been working with Azure for a couple of years here are some key thoughts around scaling:

  • Don’t instantly react to ‘spikes’! It may be just that! Consider it takes 10 minutes to start a new work role – the spike could be gone even before the worker role has spun up! Consider other options in your code such as threading before scaling up that extra role.
  • The process of scaling up or down takes a finite time – typically this is 10 to 15 minutes. Azure bills by the hour so to maximise the use I suggest you scale up no more than 10 minutes before the start of the next hour ensuring that you are not ‘burning’ your hour before the instance is up and running. Similarly plan the shut time before the end of the hour to ensure you don’t incur the charge for another hour!
  • If you are going ‘automated’ the set sample times to be long enough to be meaningful and sensible upper and lower boundaries.
  • Consider the events occurring that may cause increased access to your site. Prepare in advance rather than simply reacting are letting the automatic system do it.
  • Lastly, treat Azure as any other resource: it must be managed , it must be measured and it must be monitored.

          Allegri: Skuat Muda Juventus Kurang Pengalaman di Markas SPAL      Comment   Translate Page      

Jakarta Juventusmengalami hari buruk di Ferrara, saat tandang ke markas SPAL, Paolo-Mazza Stadium, Sabtu (13/4/2019) malam WIB. Hanya butuh hasil imbang, Bianconeri malah tumbang dengan skor 1-2.

Dampaknya, Juventus harus kembali menunda perayaan gelar juara musim ini. Padahal, Nyonya Tua berharap bisa menyegel gelar itu sebelum menjamu Ajax Amsterdam dalam laga leg kedua perempat final Liga Champions 2018-2019, Rabu dini hari WIB (17/4/2019).

Setelah pertandingan kontra SPAL, pelatih Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri, memberikan komentarnya.

Ia mengaku menyayangkan kekalahan itu, namun terkesan tak mempersoalkannya lantaran ada target lebih besar dibidik pada Selasa mendatang (Rabu dini hari WIB), yakni saat menjamu Ajax.

"Kami ingin mengakhiri (perburuan juara) pada hari ini. Penampilan pemain cukup bagus dan pemain muda bermain dengan percaya diri, sayangnya kami kalah," ujarnya.

"Gozzi bermain baik, dia menjalani laga bagus. Begitu pula Kastanos, Nicolussi dan Mavididi," imbuhnya.

"Pada gol kedua, kami membuat sedikit kesalahan, tapi kami memainkan permainan bagus di babak pertama, serta punya reaksi apik. Semuanya bermain bagus, kami menyayangkan untuk kekalahan ini, hanya kami harus membayarnya karena kurangnya pengalaman," ucap Allegri.

Allegri memang menurunkan pemain lapis kedua dalam laga ini. Ia memutuskan tak membawa pemain pilar seperti Cristiano Ronaldo, Miralem Pjanic hingga Giorgio Chiellini.

Sebagai gantinya, Allegri memberikan kesempatan debut untuk dua pemain muda, Paulo Gozzi dan Grigoris Kastanos. Gozzi menggantikan Chiellini, Kastanos mengisi posisi Pjanic. Moise Kean juga kembali dimainkan sebagai striker utama Juventus.

"Membuat sejarah itu cukup sulit, Anda harus mengeluarkan energi dan ada juga pertandingan di Eropa yang harus kami perhatikan," kata sang pelatih.

"Jika kami memasang seluruh pemain starter kami, akan lebih mudah buat kami untuk memenangkan pertandingan. Tapi, ada tujuan yang kami bidik pada laga Selasa mendatang. Kami sudah mencatatkan 27 kemenangan, tiga imbang, dan dua kekalahan (di Serie A). Ini rekor yang mengesankan," tutur pelatih 51 tahun ini.

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Debat pamungkas Pilpres 2019 yang berlangsung di Hotel Sultan, Jakarta pada Sabtu, 13 April 2019 telah selesai digelar. Kedua pasangan calon presiden (capres) dan calon wakil presiden (cawapres) sudah menampilkan yang terbaik.

Saat debat, paslon nomor urut 01 Joko Widodo atau Jokowi-Ma'ruf Amin kembali mengeluarkan akronim-akronim andalannya. Tak mau kalah, paslon nomor urut 02 Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno juga turut mengeluarkan akronim.

          6 Zodiak Ini Anti Menunda Pekerjaan      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Banyak dari kita yang suka mengerjakan pekerjaan, apapun itu, di saat-saat terakhir. Tapi, beberapa orang dengan zodiak ini tidak suka menunda-nunda pekerjaan. Ketika ada pekerjaan, mereka akan bungkam dan langsung fokus menyelesaikannya.

Ada istilah sense of urgency yang mereka miliki. Sense of urgency adalah insting untuk selalu menyelesaikan sesuatu, atau merasa dikejar-kejar ketika masih ada pekerjaan yang tersisa.

Dalam dunia kerja, insting ini sangat membantu kelancaran operasional bisnis karena seluruh agenda atau kegiatan terlaksana tepat waktu.

Dari 12 zodiak, 6 zodiak ini tidak suka menunda pekerjaan, seperti yang dilansir dari Your Tango:

1. Capricorn (22 Desember - 19 Januari)

Capricorn punya sikap pantang santai sebelum pekerjaan selesai, yang tentu saja bagian dari instingnya. Dia tidak mau menyentuh kata deadline, semua pekerjaan harus selesai jauh hari sebelum deadline.

Mereka punya tujuan yang tetap dan punya batas waktu mengerjakan tugas. Tentu saja, dia adalah calon pemimpin yang baik dengan sikapnya ini.

Capricorn tidak akan senang dengan orang yang hanya duduk dan diam tanpa melakukan apapun padahal punya pekerjaan menumpuk di mejanya.

2. Scorpio (23 Oktober - 21 November)

6 Zodiak Ini Anti Menunda Pekerjaan, Siapa Saja?#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F304707

Ketika zodiak ini melakukan sebuah proyek, semua orang yakin dia akan melakukan yang terbaik. Scorpio akan merelakan waktu bermainnya demi menyelesaikan target proyek.

Mereka tidak suka meninggalkan pekerjaan yang belum selesai dan benci tim yang tidak bekerja sesuai dengan jadwal. Kalau Scorpio jadi pemimpin, sudah pasti dia akan memilih orang-orang yang juga pekerja keras seperti dirinya.

3. Leo (23 Juli - 22 Agustus)

Zodiak ini dilahirkan sebagai pemimpin, jadi tidak heran kalau tanggung jawabnya juga besar. Mereka terbiasa menyelesaikan pekerjaan dengan cara mereka sendiri.

Leo juga selalu menginspirasi orang lain dengan sikapnya yang disiplin. Ketika ada suatu pekerjaan, Leo tidak mau diganggu dan akan fokus hingga pekerjaannya selesai.

4. Virgo (23 Agustus - 22 September)

Ketika sudah berkomitmen untuk melakukan pekerjaan, Virgo akan dengan tekun menyelesaikannya supaya dia bisa mengerjakan pekerjaan lainnya. Tidak ada kata santai sebelum pekerjaan beres dengan baik.

Mereka juga tidak suka melakukan pekerjaan setengah-setengah. Kalau sudah mengerjakannya, mereka akan habiskan waktu sampai pekerjaan selesai. Virgo juga sangat berorientasi pada detail dan tidak bisa diganggu ketika sedang fokus.

5. Aries (21 Maret - 19 April)

6 Zodiak Ini Anti Menunda Pekerjaan, Siapa Saja?./Copyright unsplash.com/daria nepriakhina#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F2019_04_14%2F304707

Aries selalu membuat keputusan dengan cepat dan bergerak sigap mengerjakan apa yang sudah dimulai. Mereka akan menyisihkan sebagian waktu pribadi hanya agar sebuah proyek bisa selesai.

Meski begitu, kadang Aries bisa merasa stress karena banyaknya tekanan pekerjaan, sementara dirinya tidak bisa berhenti. Aries harusnya bisa membagi prioritas pekerjaannya agar tidak terlalu stress.

6. Aquarius (20 Januari - 18 Februari)

Aquarius mungkin bisa jadi berbeda namun tak sama dengan Aries. Mereka sama-sama bisa menangani pekerjaan rumit dan berkomitmen untuk menyelesaikannya tanpa tanggung-tanggung, tapi Aquarius punya emosi yang lebih stabil dan bisa mengatur rasa paniknya, sehingga kesehatan mentalnya tidak terganggu.

Mereka lihai memisahkan pekerjaan dengan kehidupan pribadi. Mereka dikenal bisa mengatur waktu dengan baik, tetap bisa bersantai namun pekerjaan selesai tepat waktu.

          Liverpool Sudah Lupakan Tragedi 2014      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Pelatih Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp memohon agar fans mereka tak lagi mengenang memori tahun 2014 jelang pertandingan melawan Chelsea besok. Klopp menilai kondisi timnya saat ini berbeda jauh dengan 2014 dan tidak akan terpeleset lagi.

Pada tahun 2014 silam, Liverpool memimpin perburuan gelar EPL hingga tiga pertandingan terakhir musim itu. Pada saat itu mereka harus menghadapi Chelsea di Anfield pada tanggal 27 April. 

Di laga itu, The Reds harus kalah dengan skor 2-0 oleh Chelsea, di mana kejadian Steven Gerrard terpeleset dan Demba Ba merebut bola itu dan mencetak gol membuat The Reds harus menyerahkan gelar juara kepada Manchester City.

Minggu ini, Liverpool akan mengulangi pertandingan itu di Anfield dengan menjamu Chelsea, dan Klopp menegaskan timnya sudah move on dari kekalahan itu. "Saya tidak yakin kekalahan itu ada di benak semua pendukung kami kecuali kalian [Media]," ujar Klopp seperti yang dikutip Goal International.

Klopp menyebut bahwa kejadian itu sudah lima tahun berlalu, dan saat ini Liverpool sudah memasuki lembaran baru dalam perjalanan mereka.

"Saya belum mendengarkan para fans membicarakan kekalahan itu belakangan ini. Jika memang ada fans yang membicarakan kekalahan itu, saya akan meminta mereka untuk mengabaikan itu semua."

"Kekalahan itu sudah tidak ada hubungannya dengan kami, karena saat ini kami memasuki kisah baru. Kejadian-kejadian seperti itu biasanya terjadi satu kali dalam seumur hidup, terkadang dua kali, bahkan terkadang tidak pernah terjadi sama sekali."

Optimistis

Klopp juga mengaku optimis timnya bisa memenangkan pertandingan di Anfield itu karena ia menyebut timnya memiliki Mohamed Salah dalam timnya.

"Saya tidak tahu berapa pemain Chelsea [tahun 2014] yang terlibat di pertandingan hari Minggu nanti. Bahkan sekarang kami memiliki Mohamed Salah dalam tim kami."

"Sejauh ini hanya warna dan nama klub kedua tim yang masih sama. Saya benar-benar memandang positif pertandingan ini, dan saya tahu kami harus bekerja keras untuk mendapatkan hasil yang bagus."

"Saya pribadi senang pertandingan kami di hari Selasa malam [vs Porto], di mana kami menunjukkan permainan yang bagus dan kami memiliki target yang besar. Itulah yang harus kami tunjukkan lagi pada pertandingan besok." tandasnya.

          Allegri: Skuat Muda Juventus Kurang Pengalaman di Markas SPAL      Comment   Translate Page      

Jakarta Juventusmengalami hari buruk di Ferrara, saat tandang ke markas SPAL, Paolo-Mazza Stadium, Sabtu (13/4/2019) malam WIB. Hanya butuh hasil imbang, Bianconeri malah tumbang dengan skor 1-2.

Dampaknya, Juventus harus kembali menunda perayaan gelar juara musim ini. Padahal, Nyonya Tua berharap bisa menyegel gelar itu sebelum menjamu Ajax Amsterdam dalam laga leg kedua perempat final Liga Champions 2018-2019, Rabu dini hari WIB (17/4/2019).

Setelah pertandingan kontra SPAL, pelatih Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri, memberikan komentarnya.

Ia mengaku menyayangkan kekalahan itu, namun terkesan tak mempersoalkannya lantaran ada target lebih besar dibidik pada Selasa mendatang (Rabu dini hari WIB), yakni saat menjamu Ajax.

"Kami ingin mengakhiri (perburuan juara) pada hari ini. Penampilan pemain cukup bagus dan pemain muda bermain dengan percaya diri, sayangnya kami kalah," ujarnya.

"Gozzi bermain baik, dia menjalani laga bagus. Begitu pula Kastanos, Nicolussi dan Mavididi," imbuhnya.

"Pada gol kedua, kami membuat sedikit kesalahan, tapi kami memainkan permainan bagus di babak pertama, serta punya reaksi apik. Semuanya bermain bagus, kami menyayangkan untuk kekalahan ini, hanya kami harus membayarnya karena kurangnya pengalaman," ucap Allegri.

Allegri memang menurunkan pemain lapis kedua dalam laga ini. Ia memutuskan tak membawa pemain pilar seperti Cristiano Ronaldo, Miralem Pjanic hingga Giorgio Chiellini.

Sebagai gantinya, Allegri memberikan kesempatan debut untuk dua pemain muda, Paulo Gozzi dan Grigoris Kastanos. Gozzi menggantikan Chiellini, Kastanos mengisi posisi Pjanic. Moise Kean juga kembali dimainkan sebagai striker utama Juventus.

"Membuat sejarah itu cukup sulit, Anda harus mengeluarkan energi dan ada juga pertandingan di Eropa yang harus kami perhatikan," kata sang pelatih.

"Jika kami memasang seluruh pemain starter kami, akan lebih mudah buat kami untuk memenangkan pertandingan. Tapi, ada tujuan yang kami bidik pada laga Selasa mendatang. Kami sudah mencatatkan 27 kemenangan, tiga imbang, dan dua kekalahan (di Serie A). Ini rekor yang mengesankan," tutur pelatih 51 tahun ini.

          Holy Smokes...did Washington State just pass a full-blown ACA Public Option??      Comment   Translate Page      

Back in January, 2nd-term Washington Governor and Democratic Presidential candidate Jay Inslee jumped fully onboard the Public Option train:

Inslee proposes ‘public option’ health-insurance plan for Washington

The proposal, which Inslee said is the first step toward universal health care, is geared in part to help stabilize the exchange, which has wrestled with double-digit premium increases and attempts by Republicans in Congress and President Donald Trump to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.

...The proposal would have the state Health Care Authority contract with at least one health-insurance carrier to offer qualified health coverage on the Washington Health Benefit Exchange, according to a summary of the proposal.

The plan would be designed with transparent and consistent deductibles, copays and coinsurance, according to the summary, and would “compete on premium price, provider networks, customer service, and quality.”

...Washington state Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler said getting the legislation passed will be difficult, but is necessary, especially for people buying health insurance on the individual market who don’t qualify for a subsidy.

...Cody said insurance companies know about the proposed legislation and are not “overjoyed” about the plan.

As I noted at the time:

Well no, they wouldn't be, would they (except for whichever carrier wins the state contract, I presume).

Since January, however, I haven't really written much about Inslee's proposal. I obviously hoped it would be serious, but figured it was mostly just meant to bolster his progressive street cred for his Presidential run.

Well, guess what just happened?

Democrats in Olympia push through governor’s 'green' agenda and public healthcare coverage bills

...Another key item on the governor’s agenda is the so-called “public option” socialized health care coverage measure, SB 5526. This bill would create subsidized state-funded public health plans managed by regulated insurance companies. It would require the State Insurance Commissioner and the Health Care Authority to set up the socialized plans by 2021.

Side note: The term "socialized" is being misused here in my opinion, since the proposal would be neither socialized medicine (i.e., the healthcare providers wouldn't actually work for the government), nor would it be single payer (since enrollees would still be paying premiums, deductibles & co-pays).

These plans would be available through the state’s health care exchange to all residents, but the state would pay subsidies to individuals with incomes of up to five times the poverty level. Premiums would be limited to no more than ten percent of adjusted gross income, and payments to doctors and other health care providers would be restricted to Medicare-level limits.

That's like a trifecta of what progressives were dreaming of a decade ago when the ACA itself was originally being developed and voted on: A true public option, more subsidies available to more people and perhaps most significantly, Medicare-level rate setting. I didn't even know about the "bumping up subsidies to 500% FPL" part, but that's obviously welcome as well! For comparison California is hoping to bump APTC assistance up to 600% FPL, and the federal House Dems ACA 2.0 bill would remove the upper-threshold cap altogether...but 500% would still be better than 400%, especially if the policies were priced based on Medicare-level reimbursement rates.

In other words, if this actually goes into effect, it would be huge.

So, what actually happened this week?

The bill passed the Senate last month by a 36-13 vote, after a House version of the proposal, HB 1523, passed the House on a 57-41 party-line vote. The final proposal of the bill was incorporated in SB 5526 and passed the House on Wednesday by a 54-38 vote, with six members excused.

Changes to the bill made by the House will have to be approved by the Senate before it goes to the governor for his signature.

Holy crap on a stick! How did I not hear about any of these developments over the past month?? If I'm understanding this correctly, all that stands between Washington State and a full-blown, robust Public Option being added to their ACA Healthcare Exchange is for Gov. Jay Inslee a final vote in the state Senate and a signature by Gov. Inslee...and voila???

Well, ok, as noted above, it wouldn't go into effect until 2021, but still...this seems like a potentially massive healthcare development.

Here's the actual text of the bill itself (or at least of the "original" version...there's also a "Substitute" version and an "Engrossed Substitute"...I have no idea which one actually passed, but they're alll about the same length. It's surprisingly brief, actually...just four pages:

AN ACT Relating to increasing the availability of quality, 2 affordable health coverage in the individual market; adding a new 3 section to chapter 43.71 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 42.56 4 RCW; adding a new section to chapter 41.05 RCW; creating a new section; and providing an expiration date.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON:

NEW SECTION. Sec. 1

A new section is added to chapter 43.71 RCW to read as follows:

(1) The exchange, in consultation with the commissioner, the authority, an independent actuary, and other stakeholders, must establish up to three standardized health plans for each of the bronze, silver, and gold levels.

(a) The standardized health plans must be designed to reduce deductibles, make more services available before the deductible, provide predictable cost sharing, maximize subsidies, limit adverse premium impacts, reduce barriers to maintaining and improving health, and encourage choice based on value, while limiting increases in health plan premium rates.

(b) The silver standardized health plan must have an actuarial value between sixty-eight and seventy percent.

(c) The exchange may update the standardized health plans annually.

(d) The exchange must provide a notice and public comment period before finalizing each year's standardized health plans.

(e) The exchange must provide written notice of the standardized health plans to licensed health carriers by January 31st before the year in which the health plans are to be offered on the exchange.

(2)(a) Beginning January 1, 2021, any health carrier offering a qualified health plan on the exchange must offer one silver standardized health plan and one gold standardized health plan on the exchange. If a health carrier offers a bronze health plan on the exchange, it must offer one bronze standardized health plan on the exchange.

(b) For plan years 2021 through 2024, a health carrier offering a standardized health plan under this section may also offer nonstandardized health plans on the exchange subject to the following:

(i) For plan years 2021 and 2022, a health carrier may offer an unlimited number of nonstandardized health plans on the exchange;

(ii) For plan years 2023 and 2024, a health carrier may not offer more than three nonstandardized health plans in each of the bronze, silver, and gold levels on the exchange; and

(iii) The actuarial value of nonstandardized silver health plans offered on the exchange may not be less than the actuarial value of the standardized silver health plan.

(c) For health plan years beginning in 2025, a health carrier may not offer nonstandardized health plans in any metal level on the exchange.

(d) A health carrier offering a standardized health plan on the exchange under this section must continue to meet all requirements for qualified health plan certification under RCW 43.71.065 32 including, but not limited to, requirements relating to rate review and network adequacy.

NEW SECTION. Sec. 2.

A new section is added to chapter 42.56 RCW to read as follows:

Any data submitted by health carriers to the health benefit exchange for purposes of establishing standardized benefit plans under section 1 of this act are confidential and exempt from disclosure under this chapter.

NEW SECTION. Sec. 3.

A new section is added to chapter 41.05 RCW to read as follows:

(1) The authority, in consultation with the health benefit exchange, must contract with one or more health carriers to offer silver and gold qualified health plans on the Washington health benefit exchange for plan years beginning in 2021. A qualified health plan offered under this section must meet the following criteria:

(a) The qualified health plan must be a standardized health plan established under section 1 of this act;

(b) The qualified health plan must meet all requirements for qualified health plan certification under RCW 43.71.065 including, but not limited to, requirements relating to rate review and network adequacy;

(c) The qualified health plan must incorporate recommendations of the Robert Bree collaborative and the health technology assessment program; and

(d) The qualified health plan's fee-for-service rates for providers and facilities may not exceed the medicare rates for the same or similar covered services in the same or similar geographic area. For reimbursement methodologies other than fee-for-service, the aggregate amount the qualified health plan pays to providers and facilities may not exceed the equivalent of the aggregate amount the qualified health plan would have reimbursed providers and facilities using fee-for-service medicare rates.

(2) When implementing this section, the director must use a request for qualifications process. The director must review the qualifications of health carriers seeking to offer qualified health plans under this section and may negotiate with the health plans to the extent necessary to refine the health carriers' responses. The director must contract with all health carriers who meet the minimum qualifications.

(3) Nothing in this section prohibits a health carrier offering qualified health plans under this section from offering other health plans in the individual market.

NEW SECTION. Sec. 4.

(1) The Washington health benefit exchange, in consultation with the health care authority and the insurance commissioner, must develop a plan to implement and fund premium subsidies for individuals whose modified adjusted gross incomes are less than five hundred percent of the federal poverty level and who are purchasing individual market coverage on the exchange. The goal of the plan is to enable participating individuals to spend no more than ten percent of their modified adjusted gross incomes on premiums. The plan must also include an assessment of providing cost-sharing reductions to plan participants.

(2) The Washington health benefit exchange must submit the plan, along with proposed implementing legislation, to the appropriate committees of the legislature by November 15, 2020.

(3) This section expires January 1, 2021.

I keep thinking that I must be missing something here. The bill is only four typed pages, it seems to have quietly flown through both the WA state House and Senate with little notice outside the state, and there's zero details on where the funding for either the public option itself or the subsidies for those earning 400-500% FPL would come from.

There's nothing about submitting a 1332 waiver approval request to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid, which either means a) it wouldn't be needed since WA operates their own exchange and they intend on financing the entire PO using state funds, or b) that's covered by a separate document.

It's worth noting that Nevada actually pulled off a similar hat trick a couple of years ago (it was a Medicaid buy-in bill, not a Medicare-level Public Option)...and like this Washington development, that one also somehow flew under the radar until it was actually mostly through the process:

The Nevada state legislature quietly, and surprisingly, passed a Medicaid buy-in option for anyone in the state. I wrote about this back in April, but even I didn't think much of it at the time--I assumed it was more of a symbolic proposal than anything, or that it would die in committee at most. The details are important, of course, but assuming they make sense, this is exactly the sort of approach I would recommend in trying to gradually transition to some type of universal single-payer like system.

The biggest questions I'd want answered are 1) What type of coverage does Medicaid actually have in Nevada? It varies widely from state to state, so if NV's is pretty comprehensive, awesome, but if it's skimpy, that's not very helpful; 2) What sort of premiums/deductibles/co-pays would buy-in enrollees be looking at?; 3) What sort of impact would this have on the state budget?; and most significantly, 4) How many Nevada doctors/hospitals would accept these enrollees? Remember, the reason a significant chunk of healthcare providers don't accept Medicaid patients is because it only reimburses them around 50¢ on the dollar compared to private insurance.

Unfortunately, while the bill passed quickly through both the Nevada House and Senate, it was ultimately vetoed by then-GOP Governor Brian Sandoval.

The difference in Washington State, of course, is that not only do they have a progressive Democratic Governor...he's the one who actually proposed the Public Option in the first place.

In terms of funding...again, I see nothing.

How much would it actually cost? I'll run some very rough estimates tomorrow.

Stay tuned...


          Update on measles cases      Comment   Translate Page      
     The Centre for Health Protection of the Department of Health (DH) said today (April 13) that no additional case of measles infection has been recorded as at 4pm today.
 
     Regarding measles control measures implemented at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), a total of five persons received measles vaccination at the airport vaccination station as at 6pm today, bringing the cumulative number of vaccinations given to 8 135.

(1) Were born in or after 1967, and have not received two doses of measles vaccination, and have not been infected with measles before, and with evidence of living with infants under one year old or living with pregnant women; or
 
(2) Have laboratory evidence of testing not positive against measles antibody (IgG)
 
     Details of evidence are as follows:

          "Medieval" Times in Verona - A Report from the World Congress of Families       Comment   Translate Page      

[Note: Quotations in the following piece from speakers at the World Congress of Families may be paraphrased. They are based upon my own notes taken at the time, and in the case of speeches not given in English, based on the simultaneous translations provided by the Congress.]

I was privileged to attend and speak at the most recent World Congress of Families (WCF), held in Verona, Italy from March 29-31. Only after hearing what the Italian speakers at the Congress had to say did I realize that this may have been the most controversial of these events—in its own country—held so far.

The most frequently cited (and refuted) criticism of the WCF was that its views are “medieval.” After two days of hearing references from the podium to the attacks upon the Verona Congress, I finally went online to find Italian news in English to document what had gone on.

The source of the “medieval” charge was an Italian politician named Luigi Di Maio. He is the leader of a relatively young political party in Italy known as the “Five Star Movement” (abbreviated M5S), and is a co-deputy prime minister. He also asserted that the WCF was for “right-wing losers.”

Some Americans may not realize the extent to which a parliamentary system creates strange bedfellows. The Five Star Movement—described by Wikipedia as a populist party taking a “big tent” political position—won the most seats in the Italian Parliament in the 2018 elections, but not a majority. Therefore, it had to form a coalition with The League, a more conservative party centered in Northern Italy (where Verona is). Several League politicians were stronger supporters of the World Congress of Families—meaning that Di Maio’s attack was directed at his own coalition partners. Di Maio had said, “The League in Verona celebrates the Middle Ages, we do not.”

When a criticism is repeatedly cited by those who were the target of it, it has probably backfired (think of Hillary Clinton and the “basket of deplorables”). That may well have been the case with the “medieval” charge, which speaker after speaker at the WCF seized upon.

“This is an open community.”

For example, Luca Zaia, President of the Veneto Region where Verona is located (roughly the equivalent of a governor in the U.S.), told the opening session of the Congress, “You must thank those who attacked you—you have become well known!”

Part of the reason defenders of the World Congress were able to take the high ground from critics was because of the heavy-handed efforts not only to stigmatize the event, but to prevent it from taking place at all. This had the effect of turning defenders of free speech into defenders of the World Congress, and vice versa.

Zaia reported, “I’ve been attacked a lot—people said we should not have this event in Verona.” However, he declared, “This is an open community as long as I am here. There is freedom for everyone to talk. The fundamental rule is to have respect for everybody . . . I do not consider this the middle ages.”

“Everyone has a right to express their own ideas.”

Federico Sboarina, the Mayor of Verona, struck a similar note. “In my city, everyone has a right to express their own ideas—no one has a right to intimidate them. Verona is being depicted as a ‘medieval’ city. It’s those who stop people from speaking freely who are ‘medieval.’”

“The worst thing you can do is prohibit [an] idea.”

This theme of free speech even led to an unscheduled appearance by Italian radio host Giuseppe Cruciani. He said bluntly, “I’m not one of you,” as far as pro-family and pro-life policy is concerned. However, he noted that “for weeks now, there has been a campaign against this event.” He said he had learned from his experience in radical politics, “If you want to fight an idea, the worst thing you can do is prohibit that idea.” Therefore, Cruciani pledged, “Every time they want to stop you from expressing your opinion, I will be with you, even though I do not agree with you.”

“The media . . . want to suppress freedom of expression.”

Writer Maria Giovanna Maglie said, “The controversy actually attracted me; but I didn’t think the attack would be so violent. If you read the papers, you would think we were here to create an outrageous scandal, to celebrate the funerals of freedom and liberty.”

Actually, she said, “Freedom is of fundamental importance—but much of the media is here to stop it. They want to suppress freedom of expression.”

“Does the World Congress of Families promote hatred?” she asked. “No, it promotes the family” (and “so does the Italian constitution,” she noted. Article 29 of that document says, “The Republic recognizes the rights of the family as a natural society founded on marriage.”).

“If you are pro-life, why should you be called ‘medieval?’” asked Maglie. She referred to political correctness as “a new authoritarianism,” and drew prolonged applause when she concluded by calling on all to resist its “tyranny.”

“This event has become a symbol of freedom.”

Sandro Oliveri, President of the Federation of Italian Pentecostal Churches, praised the organizers of the Congress, saying that they “have been very brave in light of what you have faced in the last few days,” including “aggressiveness and violence.”

“This event has become a symbol of freedom,” he declared—although not the kind promoted by those who “think that freedom is [only] to say what they agree with.”

“Why should people be afraid of talking about family?” Oliveri wondered. “This is about protecting the weakest people, the children.”

“Saying no” to practices that harm women and children “does not limit anyone’s freedom,” he insisted. “It does not mean to be ‘medieval.’”

“So much hatred”—but toward the World Congress of Families, not from it

For Lorenzo Fontana, Italy’s Minister for the Family and Disabilities, the attacks on the WCF had a personal cost. “I saw so much hatred in the polemics of the last few days,” he said. “I had to be accompanied by twice as many police as usual in my own city. Many people suffered: my wife was ill-treated at work because of the polemics. My child has been discriminated against at kindergarten because she is the daughter of Minister Fontana.”

Fontana addressed another stereotype about the Congress. “I was told that those at that Congress are against women who work,” he said. “I was told I wanted to keep women at home.” In reality, he insisted the opposite is true—“All the women in my life work!” Instead, what he wants to do is to aid female employment by facilitating “work-life balance.”

“Having a child is positive for business,” Fontana declared, citing research showing “an increase in productivity” with mothers in the workplace. “Unfortunately,” he lamented, “some people in Italy still have a ‘medieval’ view and don’t understand these things!”

The real “backward thinkers”

The fieriest speech at the Congress came from Giorgia Meloni, a member of the Chamber of Deputies (the lower house of the Italian parliament) and president of a conservative political party known as the Brothers of Italy. One article describes Meloni as the “leading lady of Italy’s right.”

“They said we are medieval, depressives, losers,” Meloni said. “I reject these [charges] and send them back to those who formulated them.” They are the real “backward thinkers,” she insisted. “A loser comes to insult us when we talk about families,” she declared. “Losers are those who accept abortion at the ninth month!”

“The fascists are gone.”

The highest-ranking government official to address the Congress was Matteo Salvini, who serves as both Interior Minister and Deputy Prime Minister in the current Italian government, and who was described last year by Time magazine as “the most feared man in Europe.” Salvini said that the criticism of the World Congress of Families had been “surreal,” with people asking him, “Are you sure you want to go to Verona? It’s the middle ages, losers, right-wing people.”

Several of the officials who spoke at the Congress are referred to in the media as “far right” or even “neo-fascist”—but it is hard to know how seriously to take those characterizations, coming from outlets that unquestioningly accept the Southern Poverty Law Center’s designation of mainstream conservative organizations like the World Congress of Families and Family Research Council as “hate groups.” Responding to such attacks, Salvini said wearily, “The fascists are gone;” but then added wryly, “There are still communists, though.” Salvini also declared, “Racism and excessive religious beliefs are not here in this room—it is others who are [wrongly] judging us.”

Grazie, Italia!

Given the ferocity of the attacks, the organizers of the World Congress of Families (especially Chairman Antonio Brandi) deserve tremendous credit for persevering. And the speakers who braved the criticism to address and/or actively support the Congress deserve the thanks of all those of us who attended. Special kudos to those not even part of the pro-family movement who nevertheless stood for the principal of free speech. To all of these, I say—Grazie, Italia!

中国学子无人不知的清华园
(德国之声中文网)在法学教授许章润因发表批评性文章而被清华大学解职之后,声援这位敢言学者的各界人士也越来越多。据美国之音报道,汉学家黎安友(Andrew James Nathan)等人发起公开信行动数天以来,已经有超过120名国际学者参与了联署,共同敦促清华校方恢复许章润教职。此前,已经有包括清华社会学教授郭于华和北大法学教授张千凡在内的多名中国学者呼吁清华大学修正错误,恢复许章润的职务。
3月底,曾经获得"十大杰出青年法学家"荣誉的许章润教授疑因批评习近平的政策而遭到撤职。此前他在2018年发表了一篇题为《我们当下的恐惧与期待》的文章,明确提出"恢复国家主席任期限制"和"平反六四"的期待,至少在两个方面挑战了中国的政治禁区。有评论认为,这是2012年以来中国体制内学者批评统治集团最为严厉的檄文。

许章润遭解职引发了人们对于中国公共言论空间愈加收紧、审查日益严苛的担忧。这位法学教授不仅得到了多位中国国内学者的声援,在国际上支持他的声音也越来越多。
据黎安友教授向美国之音介绍,敦促清华大学让许章润复职的公开信距离联署到4月19日截止,届时这封信将会寄给清华大学校方。公开信要求清华校长邱勇恢复许章润的教学研究工作,免去进一步处罚。黎安友还指出,近年来美中之间的学术交流受到越来越大的阻力,很多领域的研究工作都因为北京当局的压制而遇到麻烦。他警告道,清华大学解聘敢言学者的行为会损害这所高等学府在国际上的声誉和排名,其它中国大学也是如此。
台湾外交部官方推特在4月6日的时候发贴表示对许章润的支持。值得注意的是,这个官方推特账号一般都是用英文发布内容,而声援许章润的这条推文用的是简体中文。
对此《环球时报》主编胡锡进也在推特上予以回击,讽刺台湾公开声援北京持政治异见的教授,说明这些"地方官吏"越来越关心"中央和首都北京的事情",越来越"中国化"了。这条推文引发了激烈讨论。网友"YOYOGO"就不乏嘲讽地留言道:"胡编翻墙当心刑拘啊。"还有网友表示是来看大家怎么怼胡锡进的,反问胡主编是不是在对"党国"进行"高级黑"。
目前在清华大学法学院的官方网站上"师资情况"一栏里,许章润的个人简历页面仍然可见。在《我们当下的恐惧与期待》一文结尾,许章润这样写道:"话说完了,生死由命,而兴亡在天矣。"

          Bidik Bek AS Roma, MU Minta Bantuan Raiola      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Manchester - Manchester United (MU) sedang bergerak untuk mendapatkan bek AS Roma Kostas Manolas. MU kabarnya meminta bantuan super agen Mino Raiola.

Bukan rahasia lagi bahwa MU membutuhkan bek tengah baru. Raiola kebetulan adalah agen dari Manolas.

MU sukses mendatangkan Paul Pogba dari Juventus pada musim panas 2017. Pogba merupakan klien dari Raiola.

Manajemen Setan Merah ingin mengulang sukses mendatangkan klien Raiola. Oleh karena itu, MU membangun komunikasi dengan agen asal Italia tersebut demi meminang Manolas.

Seperti dilansir Gazzetta dello Sport, agenda utama MU memang secepat mungkin mendapat bek tengah berkualitas. Manolas, yang merupakan pemain internasional Yunani, termasuk paling mudah untuk didapatkan MU.

Kontrak Manolas dengan AS Roma memang baru akan habis Juni 2022. Tapi, Manolas punya klausul rilis kontrak yang terjangkau yakni sebesar 36 juta euro.

Impian

Manolas konon juga tertarik hijrah ke Old Trafford musim depan. Bermain di kompetisi Liga Inggris merupakan impiannya.

Sesungguhnya, MU juga mengincar bek tengah kelas dunia lainnya seperti Raphael Varane maupun Kalidou Koulibaly. Namun, harga Varane dan Koulibaly jauh di atas Manolas.

Target 4 Besar

Saat ini, MU masih berjuang untuk finis di posisi empat besar Liga Inggris. Jika gagal, Setan Merah tentu akan lebih kesulitan mendapatkan pemain-pemain incarannya.

          Liverpool Sudah Lupakan Tragedi 2014      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Pelatih Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp memohon agar fans mereka tak lagi mengenang memori tahun 2014 jelang pertandingan melawan Chelsea besok. Klopp menilai kondisi timnya saat ini berbeda jauh dengan 2014 dan tidak akan terpeleset lagi.

Pada tahun 2014 silam, Liverpool memimpin perburuan gelar EPL hingga tiga pertandingan terakhir musim itu. Pada saat itu mereka harus menghadapi Chelsea di Anfield pada tanggal 27 April. 

Di laga itu, The Reds harus kalah dengan skor 2-0 oleh Chelsea, di mana kejadian Steven Gerrard terpeleset dan Demba Ba merebut bola itu dan mencetak gol membuat The Reds harus menyerahkan gelar juara kepada Manchester City.

Minggu ini, Liverpool akan mengulangi pertandingan itu di Anfield dengan menjamu Chelsea, dan Klopp menegaskan timnya sudah move on dari kekalahan itu. "Saya tidak yakin kekalahan itu ada di benak semua pendukung kami kecuali kalian [Media]," ujar Klopp seperti yang dikutip Goal International.

Klopp menyebut bahwa kejadian itu sudah lima tahun berlalu, dan saat ini Liverpool sudah memasuki lembaran baru dalam perjalanan mereka.

"Saya belum mendengarkan para fans membicarakan kekalahan itu belakangan ini. Jika memang ada fans yang membicarakan kekalahan itu, saya akan meminta mereka untuk mengabaikan itu semua."

"Kekalahan itu sudah tidak ada hubungannya dengan kami, karena saat ini kami memasuki kisah baru. Kejadian-kejadian seperti itu biasanya terjadi satu kali dalam seumur hidup, terkadang dua kali, bahkan terkadang tidak pernah terjadi sama sekali."

Optimistis

Klopp juga mengaku optimis timnya bisa memenangkan pertandingan di Anfield itu karena ia menyebut timnya memiliki Mohamed Salah dalam timnya.

"Saya tidak tahu berapa pemain Chelsea [tahun 2014] yang terlibat di pertandingan hari Minggu nanti. Bahkan sekarang kami memiliki Mohamed Salah dalam tim kami."

"Sejauh ini hanya warna dan nama klub kedua tim yang masih sama. Saya benar-benar memandang positif pertandingan ini, dan saya tahu kami harus bekerja keras untuk mendapatkan hasil yang bagus."

"Saya pribadi senang pertandingan kami di hari Selasa malam [vs Porto], di mana kami menunjukkan permainan yang bagus dan kami memiliki target yang besar. Itulah yang harus kami tunjukkan lagi pada pertandingan besok." tandasnya.

the best conditioners for curly hair

  • Conditioner is one of the most important — if not the most important — part of a curly hair care routine. It moisturizes dry curls and cuts down on frizz.
  • DevaCurl One Condition is a nourishing olive oil-infused formula that hydrates curls without weighing them down.

A good conditioner is useful for most hair types, but absolutely essential for curls. All varieties, from loose waves to coarse coils, can benefit from the nourishing effects of conditioner. Textured hair requires more moisture to retain a defined shape and cut down on frizz.

I've tried many conditioners over my 27 years of having a head, and have found that the ones specifically formulated for curls tend to perform better for me. Tempting as it is to use any old combination shampoo/conditioner hybrid, you'll be happier if you pay more attention the ingredients.

Not all curl conditioners are created equal. My hair is quite curly, but also pretty fine. It tends to frizz easily and fall flat when it hasn't been properly cared for. I gravitate toward moisturizing, but not heavy formulas. Someone with very dry, thick hair should look for a deep conditioner to give strands a heavy dose of hydration and definition.

Here are the best conditioners for curly hair in 2019:

Read on in the slides below to check out our top picks.

The best conditioner for curly hair overall

Ulta

Why you'll love it: DevaCurl One Condition is a creamy, hydrating formula infused with olive oil that's suitable for most hair types.

DevaCurl One Condition is considered the holy grail of curly products, and the label is well-deserved. It’s truly fantastic. Maybe I’m biased, because DevaCurl products and styling methods changed my hair care life. But One Condition is ideal for many hair types.

The formula is creamy and hydrating, infused with olive oil and the brand’s signature lemongrass scent. It’s not a super thick or heavy product, but it’s nourishing enough to dramatically cut down on frizz and help define ringlets without weighing them down.

Curl authorities at Naturally Curly recommend this conditioner for the 2C curl type, which tends to be "tends to be more resistant to styling and will frizz easily." This conditioner has been featured by The Strategist, Allure, Byrdie, Bustle, and Rank and Style. Shoppers at Ulta give it a 4.5 rating based on 690 reviews.

One shopper writes, "I use this during each wash day (every 4 days) and it consistently brings back life to my curls. I've also started putting about 1 tbsp into my mister, mixed with water, for daily curl refreshing. Its light enough to not weigh down my thin hair, and doesn't make my hair greasy."

Pros: Cuts down on frizz, hydrating, works for a variety of curl types, available in two sizes

Cons: Expensive, strong scent

Buy DevaCurl One Condition at Ulta for $46



The best color-treated hair

Ulta

Why you'll love it: The Unwash Bio-Cleansing Conditioner cleans and conditions hair without stripping strands of essential moisture or vibrant dye.

Unwash makes products for all hair types, but many of the brand's products are especially excellent for curls. I personally like the Bio-Cleansing Conditioner. It's a co-wash that cleanses and conditions strands in one go (but it's not a shampoo).

The product boasts a "unique formula" that "attracts and removes daily dirt and surface build-up without stripping hair of its healthy, natural oils." It cuts down on frizz and helps create defined ringlets with minimal post-shower styling required.

This non-stripping, nourishing effect makes this an especially good choice for color-treated hair. The product claims to "[lock] in natural oils & color," so it contributes to keeping dyed hair vibrant and well hydrated. Unlike many conditioners, this one can be used on the scalp as well to access the full cleansing benefits.

Ulta shoppers rate the product 4.5 stars, based on 181 reviews, and it's been featured by Allure and Into the Gloss.

"This is the first cleaning conditioner I have tried (have used 5-6) that didn't leave my hair weighed down or very brittle. My hair was damaged 8 months ago from bleaching. I never thought my hair would look or act like it did before the damage till this conditioner. This leaves my curly hair soft and bouncy again and not weighed down," writes one shopper.

Pros: Cleanses and conditions, non-stripping, free of sulfates and parabens, can be used on color-treated hair

Cons: Expensive

Buy Unwash Bio-cleansing Conditioner at Ulta for $29



The best drugstore conditioner

Target

Why you'll love it: The Kristin Ess Frizz Management Cleansing Conditioner is an affordable option that works as well as its salon-branded counterparts.

Kristin Ess products are a delight to use, with sleek packaging and a nice floral scent. Plus everything in the range (besides the recently-launched electronic tools) costs less than $15 at Target.

My most recent fave is the Kristin Ess Frizz Management Cleansing Conditioner — and not just because of the photogenic pink packaging. It’s a creamy, lightweight cleansing conditioner that combats frizz and humidity and whisks away dirt and buildup while retaining moisture in just one step.

"The best cleansing conditioner! I have curly hair that needs extra care and no shampoo. This is a quality conditioner that cleanses and is affordable," writes one Target shopper. "My daughter has very thick, curly hair. She loves this and said it feels much softer since using this. I love the dry shampoo too!" says another.

Racked writer Tanisha Pina also gives the product high marks.

Pros: Affordable, cleanses and conditions, good for all curl types

Cons: Strong fragrance, can be hard to get product out of packaging

          Do You Feel Anger? - The Dangers of Running with the Herd      Comment   Translate Page      

Reviewed by Judd Hollander

Trying to see things from another's point of view can be an admirable trait. But when one sacrifices their own principles in the process, even if they believe it's for the right reasons, tragedy can result. This is the idea at the heart of Mara Nelson-Greenberg’s satire "Do You Feel Anger?", now having its New York premiere at the Vineyard Theatre.

Sofia (Tiffany Villarin), is a so-called "empathy instructor". Someone companies hire to help their workers better understand the feelings of their customers; and through that process, hopefully develop insights into their own behavior. Sofia’s latest assignment is at a debt collection agency. One which has been the target of multiple lawsuits. At least some of which stem from the employees’ attitudes toward those they contact.

It quickly becomes clear that the company in question is a misogynistic breeding ground for condescension. The employees' overall attitudes being basically that of immature high schoolers, with sexual innuendos and other crude comments the order of the day. Management, as personified by Jon (Greg Keller), being no better. They basically preferring a “hands-off” approach to the entire matter. Sofia's only ally is Eva (Megan Hill), one of the few apparent female members of the company, who offers her several veiled warnings on how to navigate the obstacles she will soon be face.

Initially hitting a brick wall in her attempts to connect with the workers - via a series of visual and verbal exercises - Sofia decides to come at the problem from a different angle. She suddenly seeming to go along with their attitudes. Such as laughing at their obscene jokes and lewd drawings of women. Sofia then using these new-found bonds of familiarity to push her own agenda.

Surprisingly, the men quickly respond to her new approach. This leading to some rather humorous moments as they begin to open up emotionally and try to realize the people on the other end of the phone are often more than simply financial deadbeats.

At the same time Sofia is becoming “one of the boys” so to speak, she is just as quickly alienating Eva. Someone who, until now, has simply gone along with the attitudes of the rest of the office. Now however, thanks to Sofia’s presence, she is beginning to stand up for herself. Sofia’s subsequent actions being seen by Eva as a complete betrayal at a time she needs her support the most.

This viewpoint shift is also visible in the clothes Sofia and Eva wear during the course of the play. When Sofia first arrives at the company, she is wearing a formal suit – only to be told that she should probably wear a dress. Sofia does appear in such attire soon after, with her outfits becoming ever more casual and loose fitting (i.e. a sweatshirt) as time goes on. Eva on the other hand, begins to wear garments that are more professional and austere during the course of the story. She and Sofia moving in opposite directions in terms of attitude and permissiveness.

Nelson-Greenberg has come up with a fascinating idea here. The work showing, despite how far we think we may have come in terms of equality and basic decency, that we still have so much further to go. The piece also pointing out the importance of standing one’s ground when it comes to these issues, and not simply excusing them for the sake of expediency. No matter what the underlying reason for doing so may be.

While we do get a good picture of the various employees, most of whom are stereotypical caricatures, we never get a clear idea of Sofia is, or what drives her. Without such insight, the audience is unable to see where she's coming from, and thus can't truly understand her. Which is rather ironic, as doing just that is the basis for the work Sofia does. The only thing we do know about Sofia is that her parents have just split up. She apparently either taking her father's side in the conflict, or simply refusing to deal with the matter at all. Though we only know this via a series of one-sided phone calls she receives from her increasingly distraught mother (Jeanne Sakata). Sofia choosing, for whatever reason, not to respond.

Another misstep occurs when, after laying out the basic scenario of the story, the playwright takes things in a completely new direction for the final scenes, pretty much upending everything that has gone before. The show going from a not-so-gentle poke at some serious issues, to a much harsher atmosphere; with no real explanation for the shift. Including the changing attitudes of some of the characters. The last scene in particular, meant to offer a moment of clarity by moving things completely into the metaphysical, feels more like a tacked-on afterthought. One which pretty much falls flat.

The various performers all acquit themselves well. Justin Long stands out with a strong performance as a sexual objectifier, who changes from being from simply offensive to outright threatening at the drop of a hat. Also quite effective is Sakata, who delivers some rather heartfelt monologues as Sofia's Mother as she continually tries to plead her case.

Margot Bordelon’s direction works nicely, but it's stymied by a weak script. Emilio Sosa does an excellent job with the costumes, particularly the different outfits Sofia and Eva wear. Laura Jellinek’s sets are good, with the final scenic effect being especially striking. Marie Yokoyama's lighting design works fine.

Do You Feel Anger? is definitely a show with something important to say, but the final product is too disjointed - logistically and emotionally - to leave a lasting impression.

Featuring: Jeanne Sakata (Sofia's Mother), Tiffany Villarin (Sofia), Megan Hill (Eva), Greg Keller (Jon), Justin Long (Howie), Ugo Chukwu (Jordan), Tom Aulino (Old Man)

           Comment on Vintage Snapshots: Chicago Auto Show 1966 – Here’s an Auto Show I’d Like To Have Attended by nrd515       Comment   Translate Page      
I don't know where my dad and his 2 brothers saw the Toranado, but it probably was at the Chicago show when it was first shown. They ordered 3 of them, my uncle's cars were gold (About the only gold cars I ever liked) and my dad's was probably "Laurel Mist" according to a chart I found. Dad admitted after he had it a while, he screwed up and should have gotten something else, color wise. I remember seeing a Target Red one not long after he got it and saying to him, "That's what you should have got!". He wasn't a "red car kind of guy", as he put it, and after the Toro came some truly awful colored cars, like his '68 Bronze with a black vinyl top Imperial, followed in 69 by the awful Avacado green Lincoln MkIII that was traded to my uncle for his '69 Cadillac Sedan De Ville in almost the same awful green. I, on the other hand AM a "red car kind of guy", and i've have had 6 red cars of various shades, and one orange one. I never get tired of, or regret buying red, even though I was looking to go Yellow Jacket on this one.

          Bidik Bek AS Roma, MU Minta Bantuan Raiola      Comment   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Manchester - Manchester United (MU) sedang bergerak untuk mendapatkan bek AS Roma Kostas Manolas. MU kabarnya meminta bantuan super agen Mino Raiola.

Bukan rahasia lagi bahwa MU membutuhkan bek tengah baru. Raiola kebetulan adalah agen dari Manolas.

MU sukses mendatangkan Paul Pogba dari Juventus pada musim panas 2017. Pogba merupakan klien dari Raiola.

Manajemen Setan Merah ingin mengulang sukses mendatangkan klien Raiola. Oleh karena itu, MU membangun komunikasi dengan agen asal Italia tersebut demi meminang Manolas.

Seperti dilansir Gazzetta dello Sport, agenda utama MU memang secepat mungkin mendapat bek tengah berkualitas. Manolas, yang merupakan pemain internasional Yunani, termasuk paling mudah untuk didapatkan MU.

Kontrak Manolas dengan AS Roma memang baru akan habis Juni 2022. Tapi, Manolas punya klausul rilis kontrak yang terjangkau yakni sebesar 36 juta euro.

Impian

Manolas konon juga tertarik hijrah ke Old Trafford musim depan. Bermain di kompetisi Liga Inggris merupakan impiannya.

Sesungguhnya, MU juga mengincar bek tengah kelas dunia lainnya seperti Raphael Varane maupun Kalidou Koulibaly. Namun, harga Varane dan Koulibaly jauh di atas Manolas.

Target 4 Besar

Saat ini, MU masih berjuang untuk finis di posisi empat besar Liga Inggris. Jika gagal, Setan Merah tentu akan lebih kesulitan mendapatkan pemain-pemain incarannya.

          Anytime, Anywhere: This 6-Move Workout For Your Legs and Core Requires Absolutely NO Equipment      Comment   Translate Page      

If you're constantly traveling or, like me, looking for new workouts to do in your living room, we've got some good news for you: exercise can happen outside of the gym. You don't even need fancy equipment (or any equipment!) for an effective workout; you can get your sweat on doing bodyweight moves basically wherever you so choose. Tommy Powers, the NHL Florida Panthers' strength and conditioning coach and founder of Empowers Performance, emphasized the fact that there are plenty of ways you can get a workout in that require minimal space.

Tommy, who's always on the go with the Panthers, said that a bodyweight circuit is a great for "staying sharp and feeling decent on the road, and you can just make it up as you go. Or, if you have certain body parts you want to work, you can focus on those." For instance, if you wanted to do a lot of abs, he said it's easy to do planks and crunches in a small area. He created a zero-equipment workout for POPSUGAR that will primarily target your lower body and core. Check it out in full ahead.

6-Move No-Equipment Lower-Body and Core Workout

Full-Body Warmup

Repeat this warmup for a total of two rounds.

6-Move No-Equipment Workout

  • Squats: 10 reps
  • Single-Leg Romanian Deadlifts: 10 reps each side
  • Curtsy Lunges: 10 reps each side
  • Creepy Crawlers: 10 reps each side
  • Dead Bug: 10 reps
  • Tempo Bicycle Crunch: 20 reps each side (five each side slow; five each side fast, two times)

Rest for one minute and repeat this circuit for three rounds total. Tommy said you can decrease how long you rest between rounds if you want a challenge. And, don't forget to do a cooldown stretch.

For more no-equipment workouts, check out these videos or this full-body 20-minute routine. Ahead, see directions for each move Tommy suggested, and get your workout on!


          Check Out This Trainer's 6 Favorite Plank Variations For That Oh-So-Good Core Burn      Comment   Translate Page      

Planks, like chicken soup, are good for the soul. OK, maybe we just want you to do them because they truly target your core, especially the deepest part of your core called the transverse abdominis, or TVA. These are your deep abs that wrap around your waist. Having a strong core is important, because it helps support your spine, and you use these muscles for everyday activities like walking, twisting, even going to the bathroom.

You probably know the basics: regular planks on your hands, elbow (or prone) planks, and side planks, but there are tons of variations that will either bring the intensity or tone it down for modified moves that still burn your core. "Planks are a personal favorite of mine because there are endless modifications and variations you can try to increase or decrease the intensity and keep the movement interesting," Kenzie Hayes, a coach for personal training platform Ladder, ACE-certified group fitness instructor, and personal trainer, told POPSUGAR. "They are beneficial at any stage of a fitness journey, and I believe everyone should work some sort of plank variation into their routine several times per week."

Ahead, check out Kenzie's favorite plank variations: one is foundational, three add an extra challenge, and two are modifications you can try if the others are too hard. Note that these are a list of exercises, not a full workout; we don't recommend doing all these in a row, otherwise your core will be too sore to laugh. Instead, pick a couple and incorporate these into your workouts. Let's get to planking, shall we?

          Pace of Bering Sea changes startles scientists      Comment   Translate Page      
ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The Yupik Eskimo village of Kotlik on Alaska’s northwest coast relies on a cold, hard blanket of sea ice to protect homes from vicious winter Bering Sea storms.

Frigid north winds blow down from the Arctic Ocean, freeze saltwater and push sea ice south. The ice normally prevents waves from forming and locks on to beaches, walling off villages. But not this year.

In February, southwest winds brought warm air and turned thin sea ice into “snow cone ice” that melted or blew off. When a storm pounded Norton Sound, water on Feb. 12 surged up the Yukon River and into Kotlik, flooding low-lying homes. Lifelong resident Philomena Keyes, 37, awoke to knee-deep water outside her house.

“This is the first I experienced in my life, a flood that happened in the winter, in February,” Keyes said in a phone interview.

Winter storm surge flooding is the latest indication that something’s off-kilter around the Bering Strait, the gateway from the Pacific Ocean to the Arctic Ocean. Rapid, profound changes tied to high atmospheric temperatures, a direct result of climate change, may be reordering the region’s physical makeup. Ocean researchers are asking themselves if they’re witnessing the transformation of an ecosystem.

The Bering Sea last winter saw record-low sea ice. Climate models predicted less ice, but not this soon, said Seth Danielson, a physical oceanographer at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

“The projections were saying we would’ve hit situations similar to what we saw last year, but not for another 40 or 50 years,” Danielson said.

Walruses and seals use sea ice to rest and give birth. Villagers use sea ice to hunt them. Sea ice is the primary habitat of polar bears. Algae that clings to the bottom of sea ice blooms in spring, dies and sinks, sending an infusion of food to clams, snails and sea worms on the ocean floor – the prey of gray whales, walruses and bearded seals.

Sea ice also affects commercially valuable fish. Sea ice historically has created a Bering Sea “cold pool,” an east-west barrier of extremely cold, salty water at the bottom of the wide, shallow continental shelf. The wall of cold water historically has concentrated Pacific cod and walleye pollock in the southeastern Bering Sea.

“It tends to extend from the Russian side to the northwest,” said Lyle Britt, a fisheries biologist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. “It kind of comes down almost like a little hockey stick shape ... through the center of the southeast Bering Sea.”

However, when Britt and other NOAA researchers last year conducted annual fish and ocean condition surveys, they got a big surprise: For the first time in 37 years, they found no cold pool.

Researchers found high concentrations of Pacific cod and walleye pollock in the northern Bering Sea. But the species that was supposed to be there, Arctic cod, was hardly found.

More than half the fish landed in U.S. waters come from the North Pacific, and most are caught in the Bering Sea. Chad See, executive director of the Freezer Longline Coalition, a trade association of vessels that target Pacific cod using baited lines, said members caught their quota last year but had to travel farther north.

“Does that mean that the stock is declining, is suffering because of the warming temperatures? Or is it that they’ve moved north and it’s still a vibrant fishery?” See said.

It’s too soon to conclude that atmosphere and ocean changes are due simply to climate change, said NOAA physical oceanographer Phyllis Stabeno, who has studied the Bering Sea for more than 30 years. The southern Bering Sea since 2000 has undergone multi-year stanzas of low and extensive ice, she said.

When sea ice in November began forming as usual, she expected a bounce-back this winter. Instead, warm winds in February mostly cleared the northern Bering Sea of sea ice through the Bering Strait into the Chukchi Sea.

“We’re in winter,” she said. “This is all supposed to be frozen.”

Formation of the cold pool is again in doubt. It could return in the future, but temperatures are trending upward with the rate of greenhouse gases entering the atmosphere.

Scientists say figuring out the ocean physics is far less of a challenge than projecting the biological ramifications.

“We sort of opened up this whole Pandora’s box of not really knowing how the ecosystem as a whole is going to adjust to that,” Danielson said.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Park Service early last summer detected trouble. Resident called with reports of emaciated and dead seabirds.

Common murres, which can use up fat reserves and starve after three days without eating, fly hundreds miles to find fish schools or krill but were washing up dead on shore. Forktail storm petrels, fulmars, shearwaters, kittiwakes, auklets and puffins also died.

No one can say why. Seabird experts wonder whether the presence of more pollock and Pacific cod, which have voracious appetites and are far more efficient hunters of forage fish than seabirds, was a factor.

Dean Stockwell, a research associate professor at the University of Alaska Fairbanks with a specialty in phytoplankton, said the ocean changes have the potential to affect plant life at the bottom of the food web but it’s too soon to know.

Of immediate concern is whether warmer water will allow harmful algae containing toxins to stay viable long enough for shellfish to eat them and pass toxins to marine mammals and people. Toxins are being carried to the Arctic, Stockwell said.

“The question with global warming types of things is, ‘Can it get a foothold? Can they do damage?’” he said.

Seabird experts wonder if toxins played a role in recent seabird deaths by affecting their ability to forage.

No one has connected the dots, said Britt, the NOAA fisheries biologist.

“At the moment, nobody’s sitting with in-hand a comprehensive research study that covers the birds and the mammals and the fish and the zooplankton all in one synthesized report,” he said, adding that it will take researchers more time to figure out what’s going on.

Meantime, Kotlik resident Keyes is researching climate change effects in her coastal village of 650 as project coordinator for a team working under a Bureau of Indian Affairs program.

The absence of sea ice since mid-February meant taking land routes to visit nearby villages, she said. And seal hunters this spring found bearded seals to harvest but not near the village.

Like the cod fishermen, “They had to go farther north,” Keyes said.

          PERU - In honor of the fallen fighters of the Day of Heroism      Comment   Translate Page      


April 13, 2019


We share an unofficial translation of a document of the Communist Party of Peru from the year 2018 on the demolition of a mausoleum erected in honor of the fallen fighters of the Day of Heroism:

The Communist Party of Peru in front of the proletariat and the peoples of the world denounces:

I. That on the 19th of July of 1986 the reactionary state, through its government on duty with Alan García Pérez, ordered the most abominable act in its counterrevolutionary war: THE GENOCIDE OF THE PRISONS OF EL FRONTÒN, LURINGANCHO AND EL CALLAO, murdering 250 unarmed political prisoners with bullets, incendiary bombs and explosives. Not satisfied with this vile act, they didn't want to give the remains back to their families and surreptitiously carried out a clandestine burial scattering the remains in multiple tombs without names, without telling anything to their relatives, but publishing in the newspapers "they have been given Christian burials" and "the burial places will be made known".

Genocidal act, genocidal order and day of genocide of 250 murdered men and women covered with 32 YEARS OF IMPUNITY.
But the struggle of the relatives has not been given up and continued demanding the return of the remains and their exhumation in order to identify them. Recently, the reactionary Peruvian state kidnapped the remains keeping them in boxes in the basements of the Public Ministry since 2003, when the Inter-American Court of Human Rights demanded the state of Peru to carry out a trial. 

The peregrination of the mothers, sons, fathers, brothers and friends lasted, in the context of the open trial, 30 years after the genocidal act until only about 20 remains of bodies were returned, to which their relatives and friends finally gave a dignified and appropiate burial, for being youths, who were imprisoned and murdered for fighting against the inequality and injustice of the capitalist order of exploitation, who were never judged or condemned, only processed.
The CPP having branded the vile genocide, saluted the heroism of the revolutionaries and ratified the DAY OF HEROISM the 19th of June of 1986. From this date onwards homage is paid to these heroes of the people and the revolution. They also paid solemn homage to the remains as little as they were.
The famlies with their poor economies legitimately bought the terrain, not in the vast and sumptuous cemeteries of the capital, but in the historic and populous village of Comas, in the outskirts of Lima, Cono Norte, last hill. They fabricated a beautiful sculpture out of piedra de Huamanga (T.N.: type of alabaster originary of Peru) 40cm in size. Thousands of sons of the people accompanied the families and not one legal asset was damaged that day. Internationally, communists, revolutionaries and real democrats moved extended their just homage to the fallen in Peru.
And as it had to be, again the reactionary Peruvian state, of the extreme right today, decided to demolish the humble, but meaningful construction and without hesitation passed a law with a name of its own through its corroded far-right Congress, even though the law proposed by the far-right supposed liberal Alberto de Belaunde and approved by the replacement of the renouncing Pedro Pablo Kuczynksi, the engineer Vizcarra, who trying to save his putrid bourgeois state that is in general crisis and fulfilling the orders and the advice of the IDB and the CIA, puts the the target of his attack on the corruption, keeping hidden the capitalist neoliberal oppression and exploitation with maneuvers like the last Referendum.
A law that modified in an express way the Law of Cemeteries to demolish in a "democratic" way the niches.
That's the bourgeois democracy, it makes the laws that can serve the interests of its group, not even class and apply the political persecution as the only option against those who question the system of capitalist exploitation and this in the year declared Year of Dialogue and Reconciliation.

With this "legal" instrument and other legalisms, arbitrariness and discriminatory measures like the non-notification, the representative of the district, submissive to the far-right state, again DESECRATED THE REMAINS AND THE TOMBS OF THE YOUNG MURDERED IN THE GENOCIDE OF THE FRONTÓN, LURIGANCHO AND EL CALLAO.
The relatives with just indignation condemn this new act of barbarism, typical of cowards, who rejoice with the bones of the ones murdered by them, looking to not leave a trace behind of the revolutionaries and of the revolution. TO NO AVAIL!


II. Today as yesterday, the Communist Party of Peru, at the same time as it denounces the prosecution of the genocidal politics of the Peruvian state, SUPPORTS with all its firmness the struggle of the families, who only want justice and respect to bury their relatives in accordance to their own customs.
It also salutes the legal struggle put forward in the Peruvian and foreign courts. And considers just the Action of Unconstitutionality taken against this Amending Law with a name of its own that denies the fundamental rights of burrying the dead.

Who killed them?! The genocidal Peruvian state!
Who will avenge them?! The party and the revolution!
Long live the heroes of the people and the revolution!
Glory to the Day of Heroism!
Long live the Peruvian revolution!


Peru, 29th of December of 2018

          Ámbito de aplicación territorial del Reglamento UE sobre protección de datos: casos difíciles      Comment   Translate Page      

Es conocido que entre las innovaciones significativas del Reglamento (UE) 2016/679 General de Protección de Datos (RGPD) se encuentran algunas de sus previsiones en relación con el ámbito de aplicación territorial de sus disposiciones, de gran trascendencia, habida cuenta del frecuente carácter transfronterizo de las actividades de encargados, responsables y afectados, en particular cuando se trata de actividades en línea. Es sabido también que en la interpretación de los criterios establecidos en esta materia por el RGPD son de especial interés ciertos pronunciamientos del Tribunal de Justicia en relación con la Directiva que el RGPD deroga, como sus sentencias Google Spain y Weltimo. A todas estas cuestiones ya me he referido en diversas ocasiones en este blog, y con más detalle fuera del mismo (por ejemplo, aquí), incluida la circunstancia de que próximamente está previsto que el TJ se pronuncie sobre aspectos muy relevantes del ámbito territorial del llamado derecho al olvido previsto en el RGPD (aquí).

Entre las Directrices sobre la interpretación del RGPD más relevantes adoptadas por la European Data Protection Board (EDPB) se encuentran precisamente las tituladas Guidelines3/2018 on the territorial scope of the GDPR (Article 3), adoptadas el pasado 16 de noviembre. Por el órgano del que procede y por lo riguroso de su contenido, se trata de un documento de referencia imprescindible en la materia, como –salvando las distancias- sucedía antes con el llamado Grupo del artículo 29 de la Directiva. Más allá del interés de las Directrices en tanto que presentación de un marco general en lo sustancial ya conocido, con la inclusión, eso sí, de algunos ejemplos muy didácticos, puede resultar de interés detenerse en que en ciertas situaciones algunos de los criterios de interpretación que pueden desprenderse de las Directrices parecen requerir precisiones adicionales o matizaciones. Por ejemplo, en lo relativo a la conexión de una interpretación amplia del criterio de que el RGPD se aplica al “tratamiento de datos personales en el contexto de las actividades de un establecimiento del responsable o del encargado en la Unión” (art. 3.1) con la idea de que al aplicar ese criterio la localización de los afectados es completamente irrelevante (pp. 8-9 de las Directrices), así como en lo que concierne a las pautas de interpretación de los criterios de localización empleados en el artículo 3.2 RGPD, al apreciar si existe en el caso concreto oferta de bienes o servicios a interesados en la Unión. Para plantear estas cuestiones en las siguientes líneas, reproduciré partes del texto de las Directrices en inglés e insertaré seguidamente mis comentarios en español.
