... and followed the rules of the most democratic constitution of that age. ... 1930s had been rendered impossible by extreme left-wing and right-wing groupings, the ... the Weimar Constitution had been the chief focus of plebiscitary democracy.



The lecture below was delivered to the plebe class at the United States Military Academy at West Point in October of last year.


ON THIS DAY
On Aug. 19, 1934, a plebiscite in Germany approved the vesting of sole executive power in Adolf Hitler as Fuhrer.


 Now, though, we know that there will be a third option. Mr Salmond used his conference speech to throw his weight behind a three-question plebiscite – with the third option providing for what is called “devolution max”. The implication is that the return to Scotland of full control over the economy, spending, taxation and borrowing would represent a moderate third way.
不過,現在我們知道,還會有第三個選項。薩爾蒙德在上述年度大會的講話中,全力倡導帶有三個選項的全民公決。這第三個選項即是所謂的“最大限度移交權力”。言下之意是:英國政府把對蘇格蘭經濟、支出、稅收和舉債的控制權完全交還給蘇格蘭,代表著溫和的“第三條路”。

倫敦警方指控密契爾上月十九日騎著單車想從首相官邸大門離開時,被守衛的警察攔住要他下車,密契爾 表明他貴為黨鞭,硬是要騎車出去,警察警告他可能被捕後,密契爾當場發飆用粗話罵警察「最好搞清楚自己的地位」、「這政府可不是你們管的」,甚至還罵警察 是「白痴」(moron )和「死老百姓」(pleb)。
pleb一字是plebian (sic)的簡稱,源於拉丁字plebeius,原指不同於上層貴族的普通公民,但在英國已演變為用來形容工人階級的歧視性字眼,凸顯上層階級面對下層階級時的傲慢態度。

But on the other hand, the Indian appropriation made me feel a bit rattled!


There is not narcissism and non-narcissism. There are narcissisms that are more or less comprehensive, generous, open, extended. What is called non-narcissism is in general but the economy of a much more welcoming and hospitable narcissism. One that is much more open to the experience of the Other as Other. I believe that without a movement of narcissistic reappropriation, the relation to the Other would be absolutely destroyed, it would be destroyed in advance. The relation to the Other, even if it remains asymmetrical, open, without possible reappropriation, must trace a movement of reappropriation in the image of one’s self for love to be possible. Love is narcissistic.
― Jacques Derrida




每年的5月8日,歐洲多國都會以不同的方式紀念第二次世界大戰歐洲戰場的結束。71年前,納粹德國在柏林正式簽署投降書,宣布在第二次世界大戰中無條件投降。因該投降書於柏林時間1945年5月9日零時生效,故此不同地區的國家會產生日期的差異,比如俄羅斯等東歐國家是在5月9日紀念二戰停戰。法國總統奧朗德將參加在凱旋門下舉行的二戰停戰日紀念活動。
Two separate capitulation events took place at the time. First, the capitulation to the Allied nations in Reims was signed on 7 May 1945, effective 23:01 CET 8 May. This date is commonly referred to as the V-E Day (Victory in Europe Day) in most western European countries. Joseph Stalin was displeased by this, believing that the German surrender should have been accepted only by the envoy of the USSR Supreme command and signed only in Berlin. Stalin insisted the Reims protocol be considered preliminary, with the main ceremony to be held in Berlin, where Marshal Zhukov was at the time, as the latter recounts in his memoirs:[6]

Another flaw in the exhibition is its limited acknowledgment of the women influenced by Cézanne. It holds one landscape by Popova, a Russian Constructivist who became acquainted with Cézanne through the collection of the Moscow businessman Sergei Shchukin, and a photographic homage to Cézanne’s “Skulls” by the appropriation artist Sherrie Levine. That’s it, unless you count the catalog’s brief nods to Elizabeth Murray, Sylvia Plimack Mangold and Cecily Brown.


Some of their firms are concerned about growing unrest in China as swathes of the country's rural population, particularly in the west, fall behind the thriving east. Official figures record 87,000 incidences of rioting and social disturbance in 2005, much of it following the forced appropriation of farmers' land in the name of development. The actual number of cases of civil unrest could be far larger.


Wm. Theodore de Bary combines linguistic clarity with historical scholarship in Asian Values and Human Rights. While disputing the politicians' appropriation of 'values,' he emphasizes the importance of community and communitarianism. He also raises the controversial question of women's dignity and position in a Confucian society. An informative and provocative book.

 In Chapter XXII Leverkühn develops the twelve-tone technique or row system, which was actually invented by Arnold Schoenberg. Schoenberg lived near Mann in Los Angeles as the novel was being written. He was very annoyed by this appropriation without his consent, and later editions of the novel included an Author's Note at the end acknowledging that the technique was Schoenberg's intellectual property, and that passages of the book dealing with musical theory are indebted in many details to Schoenberg's Harmonielehre.[9]



In 2005, Gore returned to the studio to record what would be her comeback album,Ever Since, which won critical acclaim. "She was a broad, she had moxy, she was tough," said friend and record executive Blake Morgan. He helped Gore record and produce Ever Since. Morgan said he had to reach for words from bygone eras to describe Gore's talent. "She had all of that," Morgan said. "And she had a strength ... There was something incredibly compelling about just who she was, on or off the record."

The decision by a federal district judge in Texas to block the President’s executive order on immigration until the states have contested it through the courts isn’t as serious a blow as it looks. The Justice Department is appealing it, and I doubt it will survive in the appellate courts. A more serious threat comes from House Republicans who say they'll shut the Department of Homeland Security if the executive order isn’t gutted in the Department’s appropriation (the Department’s funding runs out February 27).


The Tea Party wing of the GOP instigated the lawsuit and are behind the House Republican shutdown threat. But they’re playing with fire because:

(1) The executive order well within the President’s authority to set enforcement priorities.

(2) The President has broad support on this. According to recent polls, 72% of Americans favor allowing illegal immigrants who are the parents of children with legal status to stay in the U.S. for three years without being subject to deportation if they pass a background check and have lived in the country at least five years, and only 27% of Americans oppose this policy.

(3) The policy is overwhelmingly supported by Hispanics who constitute the fastest-growing group of American voters.

(4) The public doesn't want another government shutdown. If it happens, Republicans will be even more severely punished in 2016.

Republicans Senate Republicans know all this and are better insulated from the Tea Party than are House Republicans -- which is why the biggest upcoming fight will be between Republicans in the two chambers.

social appropriation 或譯社會利用

Cultural appropriation is the adoption or use of elements of one culture by members of a different culture.[3] Cultural appropriation is seen by some as controversial, as the use of elements of a minority culture by a cultural majority are seen as wrongfully oppressing the minority culture or stripping it of its group identity or intellectual property rights.[4]

エンジン接合部で燃料漏れか 中華航空機炎上
2007年08月22日08時00分
 那覇空港の駐機場で中華航空機が炎上した事故で、国土交通省航空・鉄道事故調査委員会は21日、火災原因となった燃料漏れは、右主翼とエンジンとの接合 部(パイロン)内部で起きた可能性があるとの見方を強めた。主翼にエンジンをつり下げて固定するパイロンには燃料タンクからエンジンに燃料を供給する配管 がある。調査委は、ゴム製の配管の継ぎ手部分に何らかの問題がある疑いを強め、22日に現地入りする米国・国家運輸安全委員会と共同で調査を進めるととも に、関係者から事情を聴く。
 主翼と胴体にある三つの燃料タンクから電動ポンプで吸い上げられた燃料は、配管を通ってエンジンに送られる。主翼内の配管はほとんどがタンク内を通っているため、損傷しても機外に燃料が漏れ出ることはない。
 パイロンを通る配管や、エンジンへの燃料供給を遮断する弁の一部などはタンクの外にあるため、破損すれば機外に燃料が漏れ出る可能性がある。特にパイロン内で配管と配管をつなぐ継ぎ手はゴム製で金属製の配管に比べ、長期間使うと劣化しやすい。
 調査委が21日、カバーで覆われたパイロン部分以外の目視できる範囲の配管などを調べたが、燃料漏れにつながる異常は確認されなかった。右側エンジン内の燃料を加圧するポンプなども燃料漏れの形跡はなかった。
 事故機は整備記録が整っていたことも確認。こうした理由から調査委は、パイロン内部以外で漏れが起きた可能性は低いとみている。
 調査委の現地調査で、右主翼はエンジンから翼端寄りはあまり燃えていないのに、パイロンの胴体側とパイロンから胴体までの右翼下面は激し く燃えていた。調査委はこれを「漏れていた燃料が火災で発火した証拠」として、漏れた燃料がこの付近にたまっていたとの見方を強めている。
 国交省によると、中華航空の整備士は、事故機が同空港の駐機場に到着した際、機体から燃料が漏れ出ているのを目撃。「右主翼の下側から燃料が漏れていた」と、同省に対して証言したという。
 現場にいた別の整備士の話では、燃料は「ジャージャー」と相当の勢いで機外に漏れ出していたとされる。
 一方、事故機のパイロットが、燃料漏れを目撃した整備士からの要請に基づいて、配管の弁を操作してエンジンへの燃料供給を遮断したことも確認された。調査委はパイロットの操作にとくに問題はなかったとみている。

Palestinian condemn ongoing Israeli operation in Nablus

Israel has expanded a massive military operation in the northern West Bank city of Nablus on Saturday and placed the city centre under curfew. On the operation's third day, Israeli soldiers

The incursion has angered the Palestinian Authority, which took charge of the town's security as part a deal reached with Israel several months ago. Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat described the operation as a systematic process to destroy the Palestinian Authority and the peace process. US President George W Bush will visit Israel and the Palestinian territories next week in an attempt
to boost peace initiatives from November's international conference in Annapolis, Maryland.
