The report is an annual overview of achievements and challenges as well as a progress update on its 2015 sustainability targets.

DESCRIPTION:

April 22, 2015 /3BL Media/ - The adidas Group has published its 2014 Sustainability Progress Report, an annual overview of achievements and challenges as well as a progress update on its 2015 sustainability targets. The report is the 15th published by the company so far.

Some highlights of the 2014 Sustainability Progress Report include:

PEOPLE

  • In 2014, the company revised its Code of Conduct for its employees.
  • The SMS worker hotline, launched at the end of 2012, was expanded to a total of twenty-five factories across Indonesia and Vietnam, covering roughly 160,000 factory workers.

PRODUCT

  • In 2014 the adidas Group used more sustainable cotton than ever before, as the company sourced more than 30% of all its cotton as Better Cotton, exceeding the originally planned 25% target. The adidas Group has committed to source 100% of cotton across all product categories in all its brands as ‘sustainable cotton’ by 2018.
  • The product offer integrating DryDye fabric has steadily increased, reaching four million yards of DryDye fabric produced by the end of 2014, and saving 100 million litres of water.

PLANET

  • The company opened its first 'green' retail concept in the HomeCourt store in Nuremberg, Germany.
  • A total of 143 environmental audits were performed at the Group's suppliers. This number includes specific chemical management audits.

PARTNERSHIP

  • To further improve its chemical management programme, the adidas Group entered into a strategic partnership with bluesign technologies. This partnership is already bringing multiple benefits such as the even more responsible use of resources in the manufacturing process.
  • To achieve convergence and consistency of monitoring tools, the Sustainable Apparel Coalition (SAC) Higg 2.0 Index Environmental Facility Module was integrated into the company's environmental supply chain work, replacing the current environmental audit tool.

This year's report is available online as PDF. Additional information is available on the adidas Group Blog. To provide any feedback about the sustainability programme and its reporting, please direct questions and/or comments to sustainability@adidas-group.com.

North Vietnamese K-50M Submachine Gun

This is lot #545 in the upcoming RIA Premier Auction. It was scheduled for April, but has been postponed - check their web site for upcoming Online Only auctions every month, though!

The K-50M was a North Vietnamese modification of the PPSh-41 submachine gun to mimic the handling of a French MAT-49. Made from Chinese Type 50 guns (which were direct copies of the original PPSh-41) in small shops, the K-50M used a wholly new lower receiver assembly. This new lower fitted an AK pistol grip and a collapsing wire stock patterned after the MAT-49. The barrel was kept intact, but the barrel shroud was shortened, the muzzle brake/compensator removed, and a new AK (or SKS) style of front sight block added. Mechanically, the guns remained unchanged, firing from an open bolt in 7.62x25mm Tokarev caliber, with the semiauto selector switch of the original Shpagin. The K-50M is compatible with PPSh-41 drums (allowing for fitting issues), but was issued with 35-round box magazines.

Professor Erhard Schütz liest Bücher über den Krieg
Das Grausen, das Warten, der Kampf

Eine Art Stammbuch wäre das für jeden friedensfreundlichen Haushalt: Zwischen den Kriegen. Blätter gegen die Zeit – haben Werner Riegel und Peter Rühmkorf ihre Zeitschrift genannt, die zwischen Dezember 1952 und August 1956 – im Juli 1956 ist Riegel an einem Hirntumor gestorben – hektographiert in einer Auflage von 100 bis 150 Exemplaren erschien. Sie hatte ein großes Thema und kaum Wirkung. Finisten nannten sie sich: „Finismus ist kein Negativismus. Er verneint nicht, er bejaht das Ende.“ Mag man heute von dieser Untergangsfixierung sieben Jahre nach dem untergegangenen Zweiten Weltkrieg verwundert sein, damals war angesichts von Korea-, heißlaufendem Kalten Krieg und Atombewaffnung keineswegs ausgemacht, dass man By the Skin of our Teeth (so das Stück Thornton Wilders) davonkäme. Orientiert waren die jungen Männer am pazifistischen Expressionismus um und nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg. „Im Hintergrund die Säulen / Des toten Griechenlands. Die Engel schrein, die Eulen / Zum nächsten Totentanz“ – steht neben dem finistischen Credo, ist von Peter Rühmkorf, aber eigentlich von Gottfried Benn her. Gemengelage. Genauer, was Werner Riegel „Schizographie“ und Rühmkorf „Schreiben mit gespaltener Feder“ nannte – Zerrissenheit zwischen Politik und Dichtung. Ein archäologisches Musterstück vom aufrechten Gang – und ein philologisches Vorzeigewerk: Sorgfältig reproduziert, mit der ganzen Patina des Hektographierten, aber auch kommentiert mit der ganzen Akribie editorischer Leidenschaft. Ein wahrer Schatz!

Doch nicht wenige sehnen sich nach den vermeintlich klar geordneten Verhältnissen des Kalten Krieges zurück. Das ist aus vielerlei Gründen ein Trug, nicht zuletzt wegen der starken Fixierung auf Europa. Denn der Kalte Krieg hat die gesamte Welt hineingezogen in die Konfrontation der Blöcke und Ideologien. Unter dem „Gleichgewicht des Schreckens“ wurden Kriege, Revolutionen, Umstürze und Bürgerkriege angezettelt. In Finnland, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Persien und so fort. Es bliebe auch bei einer ganzen Zeitungsseite Platz vermessen, die 760 Seiten dieser Weltgeschichte des Kalten Krieges des norwegischen Historikers Odd Arne Westad angemessen wiedergeben zu wollen, zumal sie – sehr plausibel – weit zurückgeht, bis ins Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts. Da muss auch nach längeren Lesemonaten die kurze, aber nachdrückliche Versicherung reichen: Das ist eine Globalgeschichte, die viele andere ersetzt. Vor allem nicht kalt lässt! Als spekulative ‚Parabel zum Grundmodell scheiternder Abschreckung und innerer Aufweichung der beiden Seiten ist übrigens Cixin Lius SF-Wälzer Der dunkle Wald (übersetzt von Karin Betz, Heyne Verlag 2018, 816 S., 16,99 €), das Mittelstück der Trisolaris-Trilogie, höchst zu empfehlen.

Vorm Einfrieren des Kriegs wurde bekanntlich besonders hart gekämpft und geschlachtet. Durch Steffen Kopetzkys Roman Propaganda (Rowohlt Berlin 2019, 496 S., 25 €; siehe der Freitag 40/2019)wurde jüngst die besonders grausame Schlacht im Hürtgenwald in der Nordeifel 1944 wieder in den Fokus gerückt. Ernest Hemingways Depeschen gelten als legendäres Musterstück dazu. Die knappen Kriegsberichte, die W. C. Heinz – später mit Hiester Richard Hornberger Jr. unter dem Pseudonym Richard Hooker Co-Autor des Romans MASH , der einen erfolgreichen Film und eine langlebige Serie nach sich zog – parallel dazu vom dortigen Schauplatz schrieb, sind indes noch viel beeindruckender, zuverlässiger wohl allemal. „Die noch Lebenden saßen auf den Rücksitzen, und manche […] auf den Motorhauben, weil die Jeeps so überfüllt waren.“ Die nüchterne Beschreibung dessen, was man gedankenlos Blutzoll zu nennen pflegt, wurde als einzige seiner Reportagen nicht gedruckt, weil, so die Redaktion, sie erst in Verbindung mit der Berichterstattung zu den Konzentrationslagern zuzumuten gewesen wäre.

Im Nachkriegs-Berlin fühlte sich Curt Riess, der aus dem Exil einen Ausweis als „War Correspondent“ mitgebracht hatte, weiterhin als Kriegsreporter, einer des Kalten Kriegs. Doch auch über heiße Kriege wurde berichtet, indes blieben – so meine Erinnerung – die Reporter dahinter unhinterfragt. Erst 1979, mit Nicolas Borns eindrucksvollem Roman über einen Korrespondenten im libanesischen Bürgerkrieg, Die Fälschung, rückte dies „Handwerk“ in all seinen Fragwürdigkeiten so recht in den Fokus. Seither ist viel geschehen und geschieht leider immer noch. Es bedurfte nicht Peter Handkes, wieder danach zu fragen. Trotz der 17 befragten Journalistinnen und -en ist Konstantin Flemigs Band im Umfang recht knapp, jedoch nicht im Inhalt. Lakonisch, desillusioniert, selbstkritisch, in der Klarheit und Nüchternheit beeindruckend, geben sie ihren Alltag zu Protokoll. Einer, zu dem die eigene wie die Gefahr anderer gehören, das Grausen, Warten und der Kampf um die Wahrheit. Am Anfang sagt Benjamin Hiller, der „krasseste Kriegsreporter Deutschlands“, schien es in Syrien cool. Doch: „Es war nicht cool, es ist nicht cool.“

Art for Human Rights: Peace Now!, thru Jul 12   

Cache   
In the spring of 1970, President Richard Nixon announced an expansion of the Vietnam War into eastern Cambodia. After fifteen years in Vietnam, the maneuver prompted outrage across an already divided United States. Nixon and other conservative politicians, tired of near-constant dissent, focused their energies on vocal university students who protested the war. Nixon called them “bums,” while Ohio Governor James Rhodes went so far as to refer to student protesters as “the worst type of people that we harbor in America.” Rhodes would permit police and the National Guard to use force against campus protesters—a decision that led to the death of four students at Kent State University in Ohio on May 4, 1970. Ten days later, two more students were killed at Jackson University in Mississippi.

Nationwide, colleges and universities closed their campuses in response, but at UC Berkeley a coalition of students, faculty, and staff formed to protest the escalating violence abroad and at home. Rapidly, they produced silkscreen posters on any surface available—used computer paper, old festival posters, pieces of cardboard—and plastered them across the campus and the cities of Berkeley and Oakland.

Fifty years later, Peace Now! presents a selection of these posters from BAMPFA’s collection and places them in context with other protest material created at and around UC Berkeley in the sixties and seventies. The latest entry in the museum’s ongoing Art for Human Rights series, the exhibition considers the materiality, ephemerality, and utility of posters as tools for social and political intervention, and speaks to the sense of urgency, anger, and vulnerability felt by students coming of age during that tumultuous time. It offers contemporary viewers the opportunity to reflect on an era in our country’s history when we were at war with one another while waging war abroad, and politicians targeted college students as enemies of the state.
          

The Art of Protest, thru Apr 30   

Cache   
This exhibit showcases original silk-screen political posters from the 1960s and 1970s on the 50th Anniversary of the Great Poster Workshop in Wurster Hall in May 1970, triggered by the killing of four students at Kent State University in Ohio. UC Berkeley, the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement, paved the way for mass protests and prolonged student strikes across the country against the Vietnam War and the draft, for black liberation and ethnic studies, and for a variety of other struggles for social justice. This legacy of protest continues to be felt in the social movements of today.
          

La lucha contrarreloj por la válvula que haga funcionar un respirador fabricado en España   

Cache   

En una minúscula válvula de apenas 15 milímetros de largo puede estar la diferencia entre la vida y la muerte. Esta válvula puede aportar a un enfermo de coronavirus el oxígeno que le roba la infección, pero es tan compleja y tan escasa que apenas quedan en España. La alternativa es hacerla, pero se parte de cero.

Un puñado de ingenieros trabajan a destajo desde hace cinco días para desentrañar los secretos de esa válvula de miniatura, obtener los materiales y fabricarla. Buscan replicar "una joya", según sus palabras. Su trabajo puede salvar vidas: por cada cinco que se fabriquen, una pequeña empresa radicada en Móstoles puede ensamblar un respirador portátil, un objeto vital para los pacientes críticos que necesitan ventilación mecánica, y que ya empieza a escasear.

Los ventiladores mecánicos de fabricación española

Hersill es esa empresa de Móstoles, la única que fabrica este tipo de respiradores portátiles en España. Una empresa pequeña, de unos 60 trabajadores, que realiza hasta ahora una producción limitada, unas pocas al día, de un objeto convertido en un producto estratégico.

A diferencia de los respiradores comunes, de gran tamaño y engorrosos para manejar y transportar, el modelo Hersill Vitae 40 es portátil, tiene batería y el tamaño de una tablet. Mientras que un respirador común puede tener hasta 3.000 piezas, el de Hersill tiene 82, según cuenta Claudio Cabeza, director de desarrollo de negocio de Grupo Premo, una empresa ubicada en el Parque Tecnológico de Málaga. Para este ingeniero, el aparato es poco menos que una pieza de orfebrería.

 

Hace unos días los responsables de Hersill recibieron la visita de técnicos del Ministerio de Industria. Los funcionarios pidieron que hiciesen muchos respiradores. Tantos como pudieran. La respuesta, según publicó Voz Pópuli, fue que no es cuestión de capacidad o de voluntad. Pueden escalar su producción, pero necesitan componentes.

El problema con este tipo de artilugios es que su especificidad es máxima. No vale cualquier pieza sino componentes muy concretos. Y de entre ellos, el más necesario y especial es la válvula, que hasta ahora importaban desde Estados Unidos. La escasez ya se acusa en un contexto de lucha descarnada por el aprovisionamiento de material médico.

Es un momento de altísima demanda de grandes multinacionales de aplicaciones médicas, y la empresa española no deja de ser un pequeño cliente con pocas posibilidades de garantizar sus pedidos. El objetivo principal sigue siendo comprar sus válvulas en el menor tiempo posible, pero se trabaja en varias alternativas y panes de contingencia, desde revisar diseños a buscar los componentes allí donde puedan estar.

A la búsqueda de las válvulas

La semana pasada, Ametic, la patronal de la industria digital, recibió un encargo del Ministerio de Industria: "Potenciar las capacidades de las empresas españolas para fabricar y suministrar respiradores". Participan en este trabajo empresas como Grupo Antolín, Velatia, Ikusi, SM Sanchez Martin, Escribano, Súrtel, Quandum, Andaltec…Ametic encargó una tarea a Grupo Premo: coordinar la búsqueda de las piezas necesarias para los respiradores.

Así que, mediante redes sociales y contactos en la industria, se pusieron a buscar tres modelos de electroválvulas en miniatura. Válvulas capaces de aportar un caudal de ventilación de hasta 120 litros, cincuenta más que las comunes. Estas válvulas se usan en otros equipos industriales cuyo uso no es esencial en este momento.

Hasta ahora han encontrado unas 500, que servirían para fabricar cien respiradores, según Cabeza. Una ayuda extra, pero aún insuficiente para escalar de manera significativa la producción de respiradores.

Puede que haga falta otra cosa. Fabricar.

Desentrañando los secretos de la válvula

"El sábado Ezequiel [Navarro, CEO de Premo] pidió una válvula de cada modelo, para hacer ingeniería inversa y fabricarlas", cuenta Cabeza. Es un proceso muy complejo, que en condiciones normales llevaría meses. Pero la situación actual dista mucho de la normalidad: el sábado por la noche, alguien viajó de Madrid a Málaga con una válvula, y el domingo seis ingenieros se pusieron a la tarea de desentrañar sus secretos.

Ese mismo día desmontaron la válvula, extrajeron sus piezas, realizaron los planos, tomaron las medidas y analizaron los materiales. Dos de ellos especialmente extraños fueron enviados a Andaltec, un centro tecnológico especializado en análisis de materiales y del plástico con sede en Martos (Jaén).

El martes ya estaban compradas las piezas necesarias para las válvulas. El jueves los centros de mecanizado y fresado que trabajan habitualmente con Premo fabricaban las primeras piezas. "Es metal mecanizado de alta precisión, con CNC [control numérico computerizado] y electroerosión", explica Cabeza, que confía en que este viernes o el sábado puedan tener el prototipo, listo para validarlo.

Pero hace una advertencia: "Si todo va bien". La pieza requiere un encaje de tolerancia de altísima precisión. "Todo el funcionamiento es mecánico. La garantía de que funcione es que la precisión sea muy buena. No hay tornillo ni pegamento. Todo es unión mecánica", ilustra el ingeniero, que el jueves a mediodía buscaba caudalímetros especializados en válvulas de pequeño tamaño.

El posible conflicto por la propiedad industrial

La fabricación de esta pieza podría generar un conflicto por la propiedad industrial de su diseño. Premo encargó un informe a sus asesores jurídicos para conocer los riesgos de desentrañar la válvula. Los abogados aseguraron que la protección del diseño había decaído.

Cabeza asegura que han recibido garantías del Gobierno de que, si hubiera problemas, contarían con su apoyo: "El ministerio considera esto estratégico a nivel industrial por posibles futuras situaciones con esta. Nos han dicho que debe estar terminado cuanto antes y con capacidad nacional de fabricación".

Grupo Premo no se dedica al sector sanitario. Sólo son especialistas en la bobina que contiene la válvula, y que ya están fabricando en Marruecos. La empresa, especializada en aplicaciones del magnetismo a la electrónica, tiene más de 1.400 trabajadores, centros de I+D en Francia, Corea del Sur y Estados Unidos, y fábricas en Marruecos, China y Vietnam. Su sede sigue en Málaga. Su especialidad son las aplicaciones del magnetismo a la electrónica. Por eso fabrican las llaves y antenas de los coches Tesla.

Ahora se enfrenta a un gran desafío. Lograr en un esfuerzo contrarreloj y bajo presión una pieza de precisión milimétrica que hasta ahora desconocían. "Es un reto brutal".

Top Fall Hiking Trails Near Toronto   

Cache   

Hiking trails near Toronto are beautiful any time of the year, but especially during fall. Fall is definitely my favourite season – with all the beautiful colours, brisk air, giant sweaters, and hot beverages, whats not to love! There’s pumpkin patches to visit, giant cornfields, tasty pumpkin treats, and so much more that make me look forward to this season all year long. Of course, the season definitely doesn’t last long if you happen to live in Canada! We are lucky if we get more than a month of nice fall weather before it gets really cold or rainy, unfortunately. But, it definitely makes you take advantage of the fall weather you do have for that short period of time! My top thing to do in fall is to go hiking. I love wandering through the forest with the colourful leaves falling everywhere, and the views that overlook kilometres of colourful leaves. I definitely prefer to hike in the fall because of the temperature as well – I don’t have to worry about being too hot or getting a sunburn! I am lucky to live in Toronto where there are plenty of hiking trails nearby that are great for day trips and/ or weekend excursions. A lot of these places are closer to Hamilton, which is actually closer to my hometown. The Niagara Escarpment creates beautiful waterfall, lookouts and hiking trails near the Toronto area, and there are quite beautiful trails to hike during the fall season! 1. Dundas Peak Dundas Peak is definitely the most popular spot in this area due to the picturesque views from the lookouts. Accessible via the Spencer Gorge Conservation Area, the trails make for an incredible Autumn walk. The forest is filled with different types of trees, all with varying shades of red, orange, and green. The hike along the escarpment will bring you to the main lookout point, where you overlook kilometres of foliage, towns, and train tracks! I enjoy visiting Dundas Peak year round, but the Fall colours make the views that much more mesmerizing! 2. Rattlesnake Point This conservation area is located in Milton, Ontario and covers approximately 100 square kilometres near the Niagara Escarpment. It is a go-to destination for rock climbers, with walls of varying difficulties spanning the 10 kilometres of cliff-edge throughout the park. These cliffs are not just for rock climbing, but make for incredible views of the surrounding areas! The park is filled with ancient Cedar trees, some over 800 years old. If you’re interested in camping, Rattlesnake Point offers 18 campsites, which are typically open during the Fall season. 3. Devil’s Punch Bowl This conservation area is home to two waterfalls and stunning trails hidden away along the Niagara Escarpment. It was created at the end of the last ice age, where giant rivers plunged over the Escarpment, carving out the gorge. You can see different layers of colourful rock throughout the gorge, where the main 37 metre waterfall plunges over. Nearby, you can see a 10 metre tall cross overlooking the gorge, which is lit up at night. As with the other places outlined in this post, the area surrounding Devil’s Punch Bowl offers great autumn views of Hamilton and area, spanning for many kilometres. 4. Albion Falls Albion Falls is Hamilton area’s most popular waterfall, and one of the most picturesque. The water falls down rippled rock, and is about 18 metres wide and 19 metres tall. Although there is no access to the base of the waterfall, there are a couple of amazing view points and trails throughout the area. 5. Webster’s Falls This may be my favourite waterfall in the Hamilton area. It is 22-metres long and spills over a tiered drop. It is situated in the Websters Falls Conservation Area, which is a gorgeous spot to visit with all the autumn colours. It definitely has a beautiful hiking trail near Toronto! The hike is generally easy to navigate, with wooden stairs and cobblestone bridges along the way. It’s great to bring the family and get lost in nature for a few hours! Nearby, there is also Tew’s Falls – Hamilton’s tallest waterfall. There isn’t a trail connecting the two waterfalls, but it is a quick drive between the parking lots. Then, you can see two waterfalls in less than half a day! Have you been to any hiking trails near Toronto? Where was your favourite spot?

Guestwords: Creativity in the Age of Corona by Andrea Grover

Guestwords: Creativity in the Age of Corona by Andrea Grover editor Thu, 03/26/2020 - 13:12
The Grover pirate crew in the Bahamas in 1977. The author appears in the foreground wearing a straw hat.

I’ve always loved disaster films, I just never hoped to be living through one. A few years ago, I heard Max Brooks (the son of Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft) on NPR talking about how he became a writer of zombie books and a sought-after consultant on epidemics. It turns out that his celebrity parents had an apocalyptic plan in place, just in case, and would ask questions over dinner like, “At what point would we eat the family dog?”

I grew up in an environment with similar imaginations. My mother was an artist and a forager who would often pull the car off the road to pick some wild berries that she would shove unwashed into our mouths, and my father, a boatman, tested our skills by leaving his five kids clamming on an island in the Great South Bay, with no sunblock, food, water, or tools, and a vague time for pickup. We’d come home sunburned, with matted hair, and he’d have a good laugh while my mom cleaned us up.

It wasn’t cruel, it was fun for us. We loved their creativity and spontaneity. One day we’d be in Catholic School, and the next morning we’d be sailing to the Bahamas, seven people on a sailboat meant to sleep four. My bunk was a bookshelf with a floatation cushion. We fished for our dinner, survived foul weather, and fought over stale cookies. Every one of us was nearly left back a grade in elementary school for unexcused absences.

Jump ahead to 2019. After a hard day’s work, I became hooked on a few streaming TV series: “The Leftovers,” “Wayward Pines,” “Under the Dome” — the first series brilliant, the second two terrible. But they all had one thing in common: An unknown catastrophic world event has happened and a group of unrelated people are forced to be together in a small town for eternity because the rest of the world is unsafe or inaccessible. Kind of like the 1990s hit TV series “Northern Exposure” if everything outside of Cicely, Alaska, was a zombie wasteland.

Or like the 1972 disaster film “The Poseidon Adventure” (with the all-star cast of Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Jack Albertson, Shelley Winters, and Red Buttons), in which people of disparate backgrounds are forced together to cooperatively figure out a way out of the hull of an overturned ship, or die. The cast typically includes a doctor, a former athlete, the sheriff, the businessman, the waitress, the priest — one of every type.

As I binged on “The Leftovers,” a masterpiece about a community trying to act normal after 2 percent of the global population disappeared from life mid-sentence, I wondered why we had a surge in the genre of small towns dealing with the aftermath of doomsday. There’s always a reason certain subjects come to the fore at different periods in history. The “Heimat” film (wholesome bucolic stories) was a soothing staple of post-World War II Germany as the country was grappling with a new toxic identity. Horror films about mad and dysfunctional families, like “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” and “The Hills Have Eyes,” were box office hits during and immediately following the Vietnam War, when American ideals of the perfect nuclear family were dismantled as young soldiers returned home with physical and mental trauma.

I often say, artists see the future. Authors of speculative fiction have an especially advanced capacity for imagining tomorrow. In 1945, the writer Arthur C. Clarke predicted geostationary communications satellites 15 years ahead of NASA’s launch of Echo, the agency’s first experimental communications satellite project. In 1941, Isaac Asimov popularized the term “robotics” in his short story “Liar!” long before robots became part of the vernacular. Aldous Huxley foresaw cloning in “Brave New World,” 1932, decades before Dolly the sheep was made incarnate (again), and countless other authors and artists envisioned the future before it was written. More recently, in 2011, Steven Soderbergh directed the film “Contagion,” which imagined how a deadly virus could travel globally in a matter of weeks by, guess what? Touching your face.

Jump ahead to March 21, 2020: We are in the early stages of a very real global pandemic related to the spread of COVID-19 and being told to stop touching our faces, or anyone else, for that matter. I am quarantined in the small town of Sag Harbor, with a cast of characters that includes my two teenage daughters, Lola and Gigi, my husband, Carlos, and a handful of friends who I take “safe distance” beach walks with daily.

Suddenly, every parent is a homeschooler, and everyone is an artist. Joseph Beuys was right. We’re playing music, performing, dancing, writing stories, and making art. Creative expression is at an all-time high. Who could spare the time for this two weeks ago? Priorities back then that seemed critical, like getting to work on time and keeping the mortgage paid, have radically shifted. Could we live smaller? Work less? Spend more time together?

Observation, slowing down, and time in nature have become essential to maintaining sanity. With each passing day, my circle of associations gets smaller and smaller. I speak with two to three co-workers daily, my parents and my siblings make funny, insider humor check-ins, and I eat three square meals with my husband and kids. All other non-essential relationships have gone virtual.

Were my parents right to pluck us out of reality and challenge our imaginations? And to routinely tell us that everything we thought mattered, like graduating from elementary school, was an illusion? One thing is clear, artists, writers, and creative people have advanced skills for surviving unpredictability in the world. They may be most prepared for life during, and after, coronavirus.

Voice of America - English: US Pledges Additional Foreign Aid to Battle COVID-19   

Cache   

The United States announced additional foreign assistance funding Thursday to help 64 at-risk countries battle the COVID-19 global pandemic while welcoming “continued, no-strings-attached” contributions from other nations.

"Today, I am pleased to announce that the United States has made available nearly $274 million in emergency health and humanitarian funding,” U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday in a statement.

The $274 million in foreign aid includes $100 million that was announced in early February, $110 million in new international disaster assistance, and $64 million in humanitarian assistance for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to assist in its pandemic response efforts for some of the world’s most vulnerable populations.

Homeless people are pictured at the

The funding will “support countries by providing protective services, water, sanitation and hygiene, food security, livelihood assistance, and humanitarian response coordination in order to mitigate the broader economic stabilization and security effects of the outbreak,” said USAID Deputy Administrator Bonnie Glick in a telephone briefing Thursday afternoon.

Among the 64 most vulnerable nations that are facing the threat of the deadly virus are Afghanistan, Angola, Indonesia, Iraq, Kazakhstan, Kenya, South Africa, Tajikistan, the Philippines, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, Burma, Cambodia, Ethiopia, the Kyrgyz Republic, Laos, Mongolia, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Thailand and Vietnam, according to Glick.

The U.S. government’s new pledges in foreign assistance came as China is stepping up its outreach to nations that are particularly hit hard by the pandemic. Planeloads of Chinese medical supplies, doctors and quarantine specialists have begun landing in European capitals almost daily, with governments of the hardest-hit countries, including Italy and Spain, openly welcoming China's help.

On Wednesday, Chinese President Xi Jinping told German Chancellor Angela Merkel in a phone call that China is ready to share "experience on COVID-19 control and treatment" with Germany while cooperating on “the research and development of the vaccines.”

“The Chinese Communist Party has a special responsibility to provide no-strings-attached assistance around the world and take responsibility for what everyone realizes is the result of the cover-up that happened in Wuhan,” said James Richardson, who is USAID director of U.S. Foreign Assistance Resources.

The U.S. is the largest health and humanitarian donor in the world.

“The United States contributes close to 40 percent of the world’s global health assistance every year, nearly five times larger than the next donor, which is the UK, and 30 percent of the world’s humanitarian assistance,” Richardson said.

Thursday, the U.S. surpassed China and Italy to become the country with the highest number of confirmed coronavirus cases.

Senior American officials have expressed frustration at Beijing's unwillingness to cooperate and provide transparent information at the initial stage of the pandemic when it was still confined to China’s Hubei Province. The U.S. said China declined its offers of assistance.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK - MARCH 26: People are seen wearing protective masks while smoking as the coronavirus continues to spread…

Beijing was upset when the U.S. announced travel restrictions on people traveling from Hubei Province and China and was disturbed by Washington’s decision to evacuate the U.S. consulate in Wuhan.

“U.S.-China relations were on the decline long before the pandemic started. But it's really the mutual animosity that's only increased since the outbreak,” said Drew Thompson, a visiting senior research fellow at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore.

"The threats to embargo the export of medical equipment from China to the U.S., including protective gear, and the war of words between government officials about the national origins of the virus, indicates that we probably have not yet found the floor of the bilateral relationship, and tensions are probably going to continue and potentially even get worse," Thompson told VOA.

Pastor é libertado após 16 anos de prisão por defender a liberdade religiosa, no Vietnã

Pastor é libertado após 16 anos de prisão por defender a liberdade religiosa, no Vietnã

O cristão vietnamita Y Ngun Khul, que foi preso por defender a liberdade religiosa de sua comunidade cristã Montagnard e por protestar contra as autoridades que fecharam sua igreja, foi libertado após 16 anos de prisão no final de fevereiro.

Ele apresenta uma série de problemas de saúde, adquiridos durante os anos de confinamento.

"Eu tenho insuficiência renal e pressão alta e tive uma hemorragia gastrointestinal", disse ele em 5 de março.

Y Ngun sofreu espancamentos dos guardas da prisão, deixando-o fisicamente marcado e foi repetidamente chutado no estômago. “Agora eu posso comer apenas uma tigela de arroz por dia porque tenho problemas de estômago que dificultam a respiração. Meu pé também está inchando, dificultando a minha movimentação”, explicou.

Durante sua ausência, a família de Y Ngun perdeu sua casa e terra e conseguiu visitá-lo apenas quatro vezes em 16 anos, pois a casa deles na província de Dak Lok ficava a mais de 800 quilômetros da província de Nghe An, onde Y Ngun estava preso.

Ngun recebeu uma sentença de 18 anos de prisão em 20 de abril de 2004. Ele destacou a discriminação do governo contra sua comunidade, muitas vezes alvo do governo vietnamita.

Muitos cristãos de Montagnard fugiram para o vizinho Camboja e Tailândia para escapar da perseguição sancionada pelo governo.

Um relatório em 2011 afirmou que mais de 350 cristãos de Montagnard, que vivem no Planalto Central, foram presos pelo governo desde 2001.

Em 2019, a Comissão de Liberdade Religiosa Internacional dos Estados Unidos (USCRIF) relatou vários casos de autoridades locais tentando coagir esses cristãos vietnamitas se retratam de sua fé, às vezes com ameaças de agressão física ou banimento.

O relatório estimou que 10.000 Montagnards permanecem apátridas porque as autoridades locais se recusam a emitir carteiras de identidade, registro doméstico ou certidões de nascimento, geralmente porque se recusam a renunciar a Cristo.
