A Yugoslavia war anniversary raised the role of U.S.-NATO aggression

first_imgNew York, March 24 — Today opponents of the 1999 U.S.-NATO war against Yugoslavia gathered in Ralph Bunche Park, across from United Nations headquarters, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the air attack directed mainly against civilian targets in Serbia. The 78 days of bombs and rockets killed 3,000 people, destroyed hundreds of schools and collapsed bridges and hospitals.March 24 demonstration at the U.N. denounces 1999 war against Yugoslavia, says ‘Kosovo is Serbia.’The war and subsequent imperialist intervention in the Balkans completed the disintegration of the former Yugoslavia, a multinational state of 20 million people. Yugoslavia had remained sovereign and socialist since its partisans drove out German imperialism in 1945. Now what remains are six small capitalist countries, semicolonies of Western imperialism. Already three of them are NATO members.In addition, there’s the rump region called Kosovo, a province wrenched out of Serbia in violation of international law. There the U.S. military built Camp Bondsteel, its major base serving NATO in the Balkans.Speakers at the rally had been active opposing the U.S.-NATO war in 1999. Besides reviewing the war crimes of the Western powers and their Balkan lackeys, some pointed to the insidious role of NATO. NATO expands role during warSara Flounders, co-director of the International Action Center who visited Yugoslavia during the bombing, underlined that it was at NATO’s 50th anniversary meeting in April 1999 — during the bombing — that the U.S. pushed through its strategy of expanding NATO membership and area of intervention. Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary then joined and brought NATO membership to 19 countries. There are now 29 members, with some on or near Russian borders, plus nine “global partners,” including Colombia. President Donald Trump has announced his intention to invite Brazil to join. NATO began its expansion with its first open aggression aimed at Yugoslavia. Since then, NATO opened the war against Libya in North Africa and participated in the occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, all under U.S. military direction. The military alliance, whose name — North Atlantic Treaty Organization — implies a limited area of responsibility, now intervenes worldwide.In the period just following World War II, the United States was by far the dominant imperialist state, measured both by its economic and military power. Originally designed to confront the Soviet Union and to prevent workers’ revolutions in Western Europe, NATO’s structure puts Washington in control. The U.S. president always chooses the NATO commander, and the general in charge is always from the Pentagon.While U.S. world economic dominance has constantly decreased, its power of destruction is still preeminent. NATO has been U.S. strategists’ choice instrument for keeping the other imperialist powers under U.S. control, something that went without question in 1949 at NATO’s founding. For contributing money and their youth to imperialist military adventures, the ruling classes of the other imperialist powers get a small piece of the loot stolen from the rest of the world. What the “new” members get is a few crumbs. NATO has been turned into a worldwide police force serving imperialism in an attempt to reconquer colonies liberated during the existence of the Soviet Union. Other speakers at the rally included former Serbian Information Minister Radmila Milentijevic, historian Barry Lituchy and composer Milos Raickovich, who organized the event. Raickovich called for a Yugoslav delegation at the major anti-NATO march in Washington, D.C., on March 30 to protest the April 1-4 NATO anniversary meeting there.

Mother arrested for allegedly using stun gun to wake son for Easter church service

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(PHEONIX) — A mother in Arizona is in trouble after allegedly getting too overzealous in waking her son for Easter church service.According to Phoenix ABC affiliate KNXV, the mother was arrested after she used a stun gun to wake her son for Sunday service.Phoenix police say 40-year-old Sharron Dobbins “contact tazed her teenage son on the leg” in order to wake him.“I said, ‘Get up! It’s Jesus’ Day!’” Dobbins told KNXV.Dobbins admits she was holding a Taser, but says she only flashed its lights and made it spark in order to warn her 16-year-old son.“I made the noise with the Taser, but I did not tase my son.”Phoenix police say they found two marks on the teen’s leg and took Dobbins into custody. Dobbins spent 12 hours in jail on Easter, KNXV reported.“He was like, ‘Mom, I’m calling the police.’ I said, ‘You can call the police, UPS, DPS, whoever you want to call,’” Dobbins told KNXV. “Police were on the phone and I told the dispatcher, I told her, ‘You need to be with Jesus right now.’”Police records show Dobbins was charged with one count of child abuse with intent to cause harm.“I don’t think I did anything wrong because you’re supposed to put God first and that’s all I was trying to do is tell my kids to put God first,” said Dobbins.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Model uncertainty in the ecosystem approach to fisheries

first_imgFisheries scientists habitually consider uncertainty in parameter values, but often neglect uncertainty about model structure. The importance of this latter source of uncertainty is likely to increase with the greater emphasis on ecosystem models in the move to an ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF). It is therefore necessary to increase awareness about pragmatic approaches with which fisheries modellers and managers can account for model uncertainty and so we review current ways of dealing with model uncertainty in fisheries and other disciplines. These all involve considering a set of alternative models representing different structural assumptions, but differ in how those models are used. The models can be used to identify bounds on possible outcomes, find management actions that will perform adequately irrespective of the true model, find management actions that best achieve one or more objectives given weights assigned to each model, or formalise hypotheses for evaluation through experimentation. Data availability is likely to limit the use of approaches that involve weighting alternative models in an ecosystem setting, and the cost of experimentation is likely to limit its use. Practical implementation of the EAF should therefore be based on management approaches that acknowledge the uncertainty inherent in model predictions and are robust to it. Model results must be presented in a way that represents the risks and trade-offs associated with alternative actions and the degree of uncertainty in predictions. This presentation should not disguise the fact that, in many cases, estimates of model uncertainty may be based on subjective criteria. The problem of model uncertainty is far from unique to fisheries, and coordination among fisheries modellers and modellers from other communities will therefore be useful.last_img read more

Former housing minister confirms he’s now tested negative for Coronavirus

He appeared unwell while delivering a speech in parliament during which he sweated heavily and mopped his face.The 52-year old was housing minister for less than six months between June 2017 and January 2018 under Theresa May’s ill-fated post-election government and spent most of his short tenure dealing with the aftermath of the Grenfell tower fire.He is now Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and it was in this capacity that he gave a speech to parliament yesterday afternoon, wiping his brow repeatedly as he struggled to deliver his thoughts from the dispatch box on upcoming legislation.“Alok Sharma began feeling unwell when in the chamber delivering the second reading of the corporate governance and insolvency bill,” a spokesperson told The Guardian.“In line with guidance he has been tested for coronavirus and is returning home to self-isolate.”The announcement of Sharma’s confirmed Covid illness comes just two days after a vote in the Commons during which MPs voted to return to parliament, despite vigorous opposition to the proposal.Parliamentary authorities have confirmed that the front-bench seat on which Sharma sat on Wednesday has now been deep cleaned. Sharma is currently self-isolating after testing positive for Coronavirus.alok sharma covid alok sharma coronavirus Housing Minister Alok Sharma June 4, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Harley-Davidson to Stop Sales of Illegal Devices that Increased Air Pollution from the Company’s…

first_imgWASHINGTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) today announced a settlement with Harley-Davidson, Inc., Harley-Davidson Motor Company Group, LLC, Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company, Inc., and Harley-Davidson Motor Company Operations, Inc. (collectively Harley-Davidson), that requires the companies to stop selling and to buy back and destroy illegal devices that increase air pollution from their motorcycles, and to sell only models of these devices that are certified to meet Clean Air Act emissions standards. Harley-Davidson will also pay a $12 million civil penalty and spend $3 million to mitigate air pollution through a project to replace conventional woodstoves with cleaner-burning stoves in local communities.The government’s complaint, filed today along with the settlement, alleges that Harley-Davidson manufactured and sold approximately 340,000 illegal devices, known as “super tuners,” that, once installed, caused motorcycles to emit higher amounts of certain air pollutants than what the company certified to EPA. Aftermarket defeat devices like these super tuners alter a motor vehicle’s emissions controls and are prohibited under the Clean Air Act for use on vehicles that have been certified to meet EPA emissions standards. Harley-Davidson also made and sold more than 12,000 motorcycles that were not covered by an EPA certification that ensures a vehicle meets federal clean air standards.“This settlement immediately stops the sale of illegal aftermarket defeat devices used on public roads that threaten the air we breathe,” said Cynthia Giles, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance. “Harley-Davidson is taking important steps to buy back the ‘super tuners’ from their dealers and destroy them, while funding projects to mitigate the pollution they caused.”“Given Harley-Davidson’s prominence in the industry, this is a very significant step toward our goal of stopping the sale of illegal aftermarket defeat devices that cause harmful pollution on our roads and in our communities,” said Assistant Attorney General John C. Cruden, head of the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division. “Anyone else who manufactures, sells, or installs these types of illegal products should take heed of Harley-Davidson’s corrective actions and immediately stop violating the law.”Since January 2008, Harley-Davidson has manufactured and sold two types of tuners, which when hooked up to Harley-Davidson motorcycles, allow users to modify certain aspects of a motorcycle’s emissions control system. These modified settings increase power and performance, but also increase the motorcycles’ emissions of hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides (NOx). These tuners have been sold at Harley-Davidson dealerships across the country.The Clean Air Act requires motor vehicle manufacturers to certify to EPA that their vehicles will meet applicable federal emissions standards to control air pollution, and every motor vehicle sold in the U.S. must be covered by an EPA-issued certificate of conformity. The Clean Air Act prohibits manufacturers from making and selling devices that bypass, defeat, or render inoperative a motor vehicle’s EPA-certified emissions control system. The Act also prohibits any person from removing or rendering inoperative a motor vehicle’s certified emissions control system and from causing such tampering. The complaint alleges violations of both these provisions.Under the settlement, Harley-Davidson will stop selling the illegal aftermarket defeat devices in the United States by August 23, 2016. Harley-Davidson will also offer to buy back all such tuners in stock at Harley-Davidson dealerships across the country and destroy them. The settlement requires the company to obtain a certification from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for any tuners it sells in the United States in the future. The CARB certification will demonstrate that the CARB-certified tuners do not cause Harley-Davidson’s motorcycles to exceed the EPA-certified emissions limits. Harley-Davidson will also conduct tests on motorcycles that have been tuned with the CARB-certified tuners and provide the results to EPA to ensure that its motorcycles remain in compliance with EPA emissions requirements. In addition, for any super tuners that Harley-Davidson sells outside the United States in the future, it must label them as not for use in the United States.The complaint also alleges that Harley-Davidson made and sold more than 12,000 motorcycles from model years 2006, 2007 and 2008 that were not covered by an EPA certificate of conformity.  A certificate of conformity covers only the motorcycle models that were included in the certification application and that are listed on the certificate. These 12,000 motorcycles were models that were not included in Harley-Davidson’s applications and that were not listed as covered by the relevant certificate. Under the consent decree, Harley-Davidson will ensure that all of its future motorcycle models intended for sale in the United States are fully certified by EPA.Hydrocarbon and NOx emissions contribute to harmful ground-level ozone, and NOx also contributes to fine particulate matter pollution. Exposure to these pollutants has been linked with a range of serious health effects, including increased asthma attacks and other respiratory illnesses. Exposure to ozone and particulate matter has also been associated with premature death due to respiratory-related or cardiovascular-related effects. Children, the elderly, and people with pre-existing respiratory disease are particularly at risk of health effects from exposure to these pollutants. The woodstove project, which Harley-Davidson will undertake in conjunction with an independent third party, will eliminate excess air pollution caused by using the illegal tuners by providing cleaner-burning stoves to designated local communities, thereby assuring better air quality in the future.EPA discovered the violations through a routine inspection and information Harley-Davidson submitted after subsequent agency information requests.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
