The evidence and the science show, what?

The market in January 1930 in Eastern Finland.

The evidence and the science show that Donald Trump has badly damaged the U.S. and its people—because he rejects evidence and science.
According to Scientific American it has never endorsed a presidential candidate in its 175-year history. This year we are compelled to do so. We do not do this lightly.
Maybe now it hit his ax in the stone.
For the sea currents are now in the same position as in 1915, when, according to press reports, behind there were four snow-free winters in Scandinavia - and large cooling begun little by little.
Really, all we can do now is look at - 
we cannot take computer simulations as a very serious science.
I want to see it self. 
However, with regard to the climate, everything possible must be done because of the precautionary principle.

In the aftermaths .... Strawbs

This one, vinyl, was there, in my teenage, and one of those my favorite plats.

   
Strawbs - Hero And Heroine - album.

mät mej ej med mått.

Skön var min krona och härligt var mitt rike, jag haver varit konung och kejsarens like i en livet.

Mät mig ej med mått, men vät mej med tårar - en dåre är jag vorden, en dåre ibland dårar. 

i spillror är mitt rike, i stycken är min krona,

i fängelsets mörker mitt brott vill jag sona.

att om vilka brott?

Religioner införlivar brott i våra sinnen.

Переписка с 18-го века

Теперь в Финляндии! В Художественном музее Атенеум
представлена (19.3.2021 - 29.8.2021) ​​выставка международного 
мастера, художника Ильи Репина (1844–1930).










Текст в дореформенной орфографии по двум спискам: сборнику XVIII века и списанный из бумаг московского архива.

Я, султанъ, сынъ Магомета, братъ — солнца и луны, внукъ и намѣстникъ Божій, владѣтель всѣхъ царствъ: Македонскаго, Вавилонскаго и Іерусалимскаго, великаго и малаго Египта; царь надъ царями; властитель надъ всѣми существующими; необыкновенный рыцарь, никѣмъ непобѣдимый; хранитель неотступный гроба Іисуса Христа; попечитель Бога самого; надежда и утѣшеніе мусульманъ, смущеніе и великій защитникъ христіанъ, повелѣваю вамъ, запорожскіе казаки, сдаться мнѣ добровольно и безъ всякаго сопротивленія, и меня вашими нападеніями не заставьте безпокоить!

Султанъ турецкій Мухамедъ.

Запорожские казаки турецкому султану!

Ты, султан, чёрт турецкий, и проклятого чёрта брат и товарищ, самого Люцифера секретарь. Какой ты к чёрту рыцарь, когда голой жопой ежа не убьёшь. Чёрт ты, высрана твоя морда. Не будешь ты, сукин ты сын, сынов христианских под собой иметь, твоего войска мы не боимся, землёй и водой будем биться с тобой, распроёб твою мать.

Вавилонский ты повар, Македонский колесник, Иерусалимский пивовар, Александрийский козолуп, Большого и Малого Египта свинопас, Армянский ворюга, Татарский сагайдак, Каменецкий палач, всего света и подсвета дурак, самого аспида внук и нашего хуя крюк. Свиная ты морда, кобылиная срака, мясницкая собака, некрещённый лоб, ну и мать твою ёб.

Вот так тебе запорожцы ответили, плюгавому. Не будешь ты даже свиней у христиан пасти. Этим кончаем, поскольку числа не знаем и календаря не имеем, месяц в небе, год в книге, а день такой у нас, какой и у вас, за это поцелуй в сраку нас!

Безнравственность в мире хоккея

ногие что надеется, что Йокерит еще раз подумают над выездом в Минск.
Отмывание денег и коррупция и другие моральные недостатки является обычным делом в хоккейный клуб генеральный Хельсинки. 

Общество хоккеистов Финляндии выступил с заявлением вчера, с заявлением, согласно которому в Беларуси не должно проводиться никаких крупных спортивных соревнований до улучшения ситуации в стране.

Общество хоккеистов Финляндии высказалось против организации в Беларуси каких-либо крупных спортивных соревнований до улучшения ситуации в стране.

Но bчера генеральный менеджер Йокерит Яри Курри сообщил, что команда отправится в Минск в соответствии с расписание игр КХЛ.

Pуководство клуба должно подумать, какое послание команда отправит своей аудитории, сыграв в Минске.

Также Министр науки и культуры Анника Саарикко (Центр), которая в правительства курирует также вопросы спорта, призывает руководство хоккейного клуба Йокерит еще раз подумать над поездкой в Минск.

Она напомнила, что государственное руководство дало критическую оценку происходящим в стране событиям.

Финляндии принято доверять клубам и их решениям в таких вопросах, но спорт - это не просто спорт, он имеет и этическое и ценностное составляющее. 

В клубе не захотели прокомментировать слова министра.

Syftet med livet, igen


Andlighet är ett mycket bredare begrepp än `religion´, även om religion kan vara ett uttryck för det också (i de östra länderna). Andra uttryck för andlighet inkluderar bön-meditation, men också att bara spendera tid i naturen, generositet mot orsaker och mer.

Den franska jesuittprästen Pierre Teilhard de Chardin sade att 

Vi är inte människor som har en andlig upplevelse. Vi är andliga varelser som har en mänsklig upplevelse. 

Mänsklig utveckling, humanisering är själva sej syftet med livet.
Psaltaren 50:12

 Om jag vore hungrig skulle jag icke säga dig det; ty min är jordens krets med allt vad därpå är.

 Livets uppgift är en annan sak än syftet finns. 
Vissa hänvisar till livets syfte som deras kallelse eller till och med deras öde.

Warning about grays

One of those grays, R71, tells 
(through the binary)  that
he/she is coming from
Zeta Reticuli. 
Look at this one.

In this crop circle, the shape is looking like an alien stands behind a disk.  There is an extraordinary short message on this something kind of the binary encrypted circle. Scientists had found that there is a message in the disk. 

There it is a binary code,  and it can be translated exact:

Beware the bearers of false gifts and their broken promises. Much pain, but still time. Believe there is good out there. We oppose deception. Conduit closing. 0x07 

The binary code of 0x07 at the end of the message would produced a bell sound similar to that of an old typewriter or bell sound.

For scientists it is looking like a warning for human beings and also for their future. This crop formation is not artificial, but it is done by some paranormal activity. All know that its a warning (there were grays ones behind nazism's technology, for excample).

Rudolf Steiner's work in the Goetheanum - first building made of wood-plastic  - human representative, Lucifer, Ahriman.

According to Britannica, crop circles are large geometric patterns made by flattening the crops of farmers. Sure, it is suggested that the purpose of the markings is to create a guide for other space crafts or to communicate with us.

Crop circles are most often found in England, but they have been reported across the globe. The first crop circle was very simple and was spotted in England in the 1970s. But the first publication of crop circles was by John Capron, in July, 1880.

Over the next two decades the number of crop circles and the complexity of the patterns increased.  One major theory involves aliens. Proponents of this theory believe that aliens are either physically making the crop circles or these extraterrestrial beings are using some energy forces from their spacecrafts to create them. 

The first binary code from human computer art, based on a crop picture near Crabwood, England, in 2002 , explained and decoded:

We are your galactic neighbors. Disclosure is coming - no more pain and deception.

Conduit closing. 0x07

Наш собственный директор - он герой

Ac proinde haec cognitio, ego cogito, ergo sum, est omnium prima - certissima, quae cuilibet ordine philosophanti occurrat. 

Президент  Финляндии, в пятницу сообщил, что между ним и Путиным состоялся длинный телефонный разговор, в ходе которого они обсудили, в частности, оказание медицинской помощи Алексею Навальному.

Президент  Финляндии Саули Ниинистё раскрыл некоторые детали своего вчерашнего разговора с президентом России Владимиром Путиным в интервью утренней телепрограмме Yle. 

Ниинистё: 

Я поинтересовался у Путина, можно ли Навального перевезти в Германию – Путин ответил, что не видит политических препятствий этому.

Я не считаю свою роль здесь решающей, 

добавил он.

Но это был решающий поступок.

Ранее Ниинистё по электронной почте прокомментировал Yle ситуацию с Навальным и назвал произошедшее с ним "ошеломляющим" и "шокирующим".

Вечером в пятницу также стало известно, что врачи омской больницы согласились отправить Навального на лечение в немецкую клинику. 

Утром в субботу самолёт с Алексеем Навальным приземлился в берлинском аэропорту Тегель.

Ниинистё: Меркель и Путин готовы вместе помогать Беларуси

Перед разговором с Путиным состоялась беседа между Ниинистё и канцлером Германии Ангелой Меркель.

A letter on justice and open debate

But this needed reckoning has also intensified a new set of moral attitudes and political commitments that tend to weaken our norms of open debate and toleration of differences in favor of ideological conformity. As we applaud the first development, we also raise our voices against the second,

according to this address.

The democratic inclusion we want can be achieved only if we speak out against the intolerant climate that has set in on all sides, they add.

Compassion is the primary experience

Oscar Wilde.
Talk about so called `cancel culture´.

So called cancel culture once honourable attempt to reimagine our society in a more equitable way now embodies all the worst aspects that religion has to offer but none of the beauty. As far as I can see, cancel culture is mercy’s antithesis. Political correctness has grown to become the unhappiest religion in the world.

Cancel culture is mercy’s antithesis. Political correctness has grown to become the unhappiest religion in the world.

We are a culture in transition, and it may be that we are heading toward a more equal society — I don’t know — but what essential values will we forfeit in the process,

says Nick Cave in his site The Red Hand Files.

Mercy is a value that should be at the heart of any functioning and tolerant society. 

He adds, mercy ultimately acknowledges that we are all imperfect and in doing so allows us the oxygen to breathe — to feel protected within a society, through our mutual fallibility. Without mercy a society loses its soul, and devours itself.

According to Cave tolerance allows the spirit of enquiry the confidence to roam freely, to make mistakes, to self-correct, to be bold, to dare to doubt and in the process to chance upon new and more advanced ideas. Without mercy society grows inflexible, fearful, vindictive and humourless.

Mercy allows us the ability to engage openly in free-ranging conversation — an expansion of collective discovery toward a common good. If mercy is our guide we have a safety net of mutual consideration, and we can, to quote Oscar Wilde

play gracefully with ideas.

Cancel culture’s refusal to engage with uncomfortable ideas has an asphyxiating effect on the creative soul of a society. Compassion is the primary experience — the heart event — out of which emerges the genius and generosity of the imagination.

Many can think also that "creativity is an act of love that can knock up against our most foundational beliefs, and in doing so brings forth fresh ways of seeing the world. This is both the function and glory of art and ideas. "

A force that finds its meaning in the cancellation of these difficult ideas hampers the creative spirit of a society and strikes at the complex and diverse nature of its culture.

with love, Nick.

Cancel Culture works behind, when:

Comes out a desire to cancel out a person or community from social media platforms. Some kind of half-narcissists make up the majority of the people who engage in cancel culture, and others who do this would include immature individuals.

Cancel Culture is characterised by the response of an evil individual when they are shown to be wrong. 

They will call on their followers to report the social media accounts of the person or group that did the criticising rather than discussing the criticism or showing by evidence where the criticism is incorrect.

Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

Oscar Wilde, De Profundis

Those smart killers of the world

Documents from litigation in the US show that Hans Eysenck, one of the most famous and influential British psychologists, had lot of theories on personality form as it a stronger cause of lung cancer than smoking - brought it to him research funding from the tobacco companies. See the guardian.com.

By the way, we in Finland have a small factor, Dr. Lasse Lehtinen, the favorite of the common people, who has underestimated the contribution of tobacco to cancer mortality for decades. In actually, it was his job at while.

fel mössa

 H&M-chefer tagna ur tjänst - men varför? 

efter rasistnamn på en mössa.

Fruktansvärt att dessa megaföretag aldrig lär sig. Det här är varför de måste regleras betydligt hårdare och allra helst förstatligas så att myndigheterna bättre kan kontrollera jämlikhets- och värdegrundsarbetet. Sånt här ska inte få hända år 2020!
Ikke så fruktansvärd, tycker jag.

Att finnas till och se på

Man se på världen som den finns 
(efter rättelserna som gjordes genom tjänstemannabeslut)
Att finnas till och se på
Vad är det att leva livet tystnad på en ö, frågade Björn Ulvaeus och Benny Andersson
Att finnas till det är för mig
att se sommarängar blomma

Även de forntida kineserna kände till de terapeutiska effekterna av trädgårdsskötsel
Lyssna och se på vågor från en sjö
När vinden blåser står jag på stranden
När vinden blåser vill jag se de största vågorna
Känner man finnas till
Man vill se ett hav i solnedgången
hård som fan
vad fan om morgon

"Mark my words"

Joe Biden
has previously raised the possibility of Trump attempting to delay the election.
Mark my words: I think he is gonna try to kick back the election somehow, come up with some rationale why it can't be held, 
Biden said at a virtual fundraiser in April (2020), according to a pool report.

1) The President does not have the power to change the date of the election.
2) Election Day is set by congressional statute, and most experts agree that it cannot be changed without congressional approval.
3) How ever historically, voting by mail has not led to massive voter fraud. And nonpartisan election experts say the possibility of foreign entities printing millions of fraudulent mail-in ballots this November is highly unlikely.
See the background information in this case by CNN.

the comment speech

The Nazi Bell.
According to Scientific American UFOs have been back in the news  because of videos initially leaked, and later confirmed, by the U.S. Navy and officially released by Pentagon that purportedly show unidentified aerial phenomena = UAP in our skies.
Judging the nature of these objects, objects, as confirmed by the Navy, needs a coherent explanation that should accommodate and connect all the facts of the events. And this is where interdisciplinary scientific investigation is needed.
As Carl Sagan concluded at the 1969 debate,
Scientists are particularly bound to have open minds; this is the lifeblood of science. 
A template to perform a thorough scientific investigation can be found in James McDonald’s paper Science in Default.
Methodology itself is a great example of objective scientific analysis. And this is exactly what scientists can do to study these events.
We do not know what UAP are, and this is precisely the reason that we as scientists should study them.
Not everything comes from the outside.
So called Nazi Bell was Hitler’ssecret technology
Maybe there were finded a way of defying gravity, sure.
The Bell, known as Die Glocke in Nazi-German powered by a mysterious red-hued fuel - it was red mercury, the flying saucer was capable to soaring from Earth. This is said to have been developed by a top team of scientists and engineers, headed by SS General Hans Kammler.

I don’t know if those engineers were fed specific diagrams and algoritms in their sleep. But something went wrong.

"my golden years" by pH

Give us some insight into the well of inspiration driving all of your activity?




I think it’s possibly to do with finding myself in my golden years. I’m also involved in two different halves of a career. One is the solo work and the other being Van Der Graaf Generator trio work. Together, the activity has reinvigorated me. Going from one thing to another is an energizing thing.
I too, I' ve writtin songs to finding myself -  also in my previous lives.

If you describe the creative process behind Consequences?
Every time I do a record, I try to do something different. That might seem a bit absurd after a 46-year career.
You might think a record is a routine effort, but it isn’t for me. For instance, the minute I sit down to record a rough piano part, that part might still be there on the final effort.
[...]
I’ve never gone into making a record or writing a body of work thinking “These are the things I want to say.”
I discover the things I want to say the minute they’re coming out of my mouth. That’s when I discover the stories and areas of human interaction that interest me at any given time. In this particular period, I think the writing had an even more unified aspect to it. The album (Consequences, 2012) includes a few slightly bizarre, stalker-oriented stories which took me by surprise. I hasten to say I have not been subject to stalking in the last year or so, nor has anyone I know personally, but it is an aspect of modern life people have to deal with.
stalker-oriented stories are the best.
How long the time seems, how dark the shadow
How straight the eagle flies, how straight towards his arrow
How long the night is – why is this passage so narrow?
How strange my body feels, impaled upon the arrow
Arrow

Peter Joseph Andrew Hammill (born 5 November 1948) is an English singer-songwriter. He is a founder member of the progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator.

vi har en sten i vår sko

.. därför gör resan är inte naturligt.
Finskt koncentrationsläger
 i Petrozavodsk, som den finska
ockupationsmakten döpte
 om staden till 1941.
 Bilden är tagen vid den allierade
 befrielsen av staden 1944
 och visar ryska civila
 som tillfångatagits i etnisk rensning.
Den finländska debatten har präglats av två perspektiv – dels är finländare medvetna om att de som finländare utgör objekt för stereotypisering, dels tillämpar finländare själva stereotyper i sina beskrivningar av omvärlden.

Jag hållar med synvinkeln historikern Henrik Arnstad: Finland ljuger om nazismen.
Finland allierade sig med nazisterna.
Finlands utrikesministerium bör skickas på en grundkurs i historia. 
75 år efter krigsslutet har Finland ännu inte medgivit den nära militära alliansen med Nazityskland.
Därför är det bara extern forskning om finsk historia som har värde.
Vi måste påminnas att Finland var den enda demokrati i världen som frivilligt allierade sig med Nazityskland.
Ett faktum som borde tillhöra allmänbildningen i Finland.
Men i den finska offentligheten levas det en nedtystad sanning. Detta har jag personligen fått erfara i mitt barndom.
Vårt förflutna med nazisism är en tabu sak.

FN-stadgan undertecknades i San Francisco den 26 juni 1945 - av de fyra stormakterna, Förenta staterna, Sovjetunionen, Folkrepubliken Kina och England och de stater som ingått i anti-Hitler-koalitionen, totalt 50 länder.
FN-stadgan har alltid handlat om mer än bara att förhindra och förebygga krig, alltså så kallad negativ fred.
i kapitlet om "internationellt samarbete på det ekonomiska och sociala området" formulerar stadgan också FN:s uppgifter för att förbättra levnadsstandarden, främja full sysselsättning och lösa internationella problem av ekonomisk, social, hälso- eller kulturell karaktär.  Alltså mänskliga rättigheterna, som annars inte nämns i stadgan, måste observeras, artikel 55 d. Allt som statsvetenskapligt kan betraktas som "positiv fred" bör också vara en del av FN:s uppgifter.

den röda linjen

Rött är rätt.
Rött är rätt färg
Blått är flott. Gult är verkligen nästan fult.
 jag kommer inte längre att röstä för de gröna.

Den röda färgen är både traditionstyngd och revolutionerande - och symbol för fara, kärlek och inte minst jul.
Polsk-tyska Rosa Luxemburg (1871–1919) rörde sej inte från sin synvikln människan som politisk varelse, sin tro var på aktivismen – på möjligheternas nej och att vi blir till genom våra handlingar – och sin övertygelse om massornas styrka samt vägen mot möjlig förändring.
Hun hade på samma gång den hårdföra revolutionären, den skickliga retorikern, den analytiska marxisten.
Luxemburg kan ha varit också vara en ömsint kärleksfull privatperson och de politiska drömmarna varieras med fantasier om att någon gång få stanna upp, viljan att sätta oväntat borgerligt bo och bilda familj. Hun var manniskan.

Consciousness

Representation of consciousness
 from the seventeenth century
by Robert Fludd.
Consciousness is a scientific problem that is unlike any other. This is a different, and a true solving will be unlike any other known solution. The brain is a use tool of consciousness.

Is a relentless true that
every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
by Ernest Hemingway.
Yes, but I can't write my own - it does not make sense if a clairvoyant does not indicate both the most important and the most interesting things.
Here's too, is already half too much.
But maybe it could a new study in consciousness: a contribution to the sciences of psychology and physics.

I hate patriotism

Woody Guthrie.
Fourth of July is fast approaching, and with it, the in US there comes a wave  of customary patriotic playlists featuring rousing anthems, nostalgic rock 'n' roll favorites and all sorts of other songs with America in the title.
But many of the classic songs that casual listeners may assume to be patriotic are anything but, from misunderstood anti-war missives to singalong favorites masking darker meanings.
Yes, I have been singing one or two of those.
See the list of songs with meanings that go deeper than their patriotic or America-centric first impressions.

According to USA Today both President Trump and candidate Bernie Sanders used Neil Young's 1989 track during their respective presidential campaigns.
Perhaps both rabble-rousing candidates found something to agree with in Young's tale of George H. W. Bush-era disillusionment, as he rails against wealth inequality, consumerism and the general decline of American society.
The chorus' Keep on rockin' in the free world refrain may be a rah-rah catchphrase that was used at the time of its release to celebrate the collapse of communism, but Young's words are almost certainly intended to be taken ironically, making the song less patriotic than the anthem it may initially seem.  
I think that is not.
This is NOT ok with me…, 
Neil Young self tweeted Friday evening.
Canadian-American rock veteran Neil Young took to Twitter on Friday to blast U.S. President Donald Trump for using his song Rockin’ in the Free World at a 4th of July rally at Mount Rushmore.
Remember it is the voice of a tax-paying U.S. citizen who does not support you,
You are a disgrace to my country,
Neil Young posts open letter to Donald Trump on last February. It seems so Young was triggered about Trump’s consistent usage of his 1989 rock anthem Rockin’ in the Free World at a number of his campaign rallies. To Trump:
Your mindless destruction of our shared natural resources, our environment, and our relationships with friends around the world is unforgivable.
They say that only a month later being naturalized as an official U.S. citizen, Young, 74, went on a scathing rant defending his country against its Republican leader Trump.

Jeff Beck

Jeff Beck and Tal Wilkenfeld.
I’m sort of horribly, pathetically fannish about Jeff. Ever since Hi Ho Silver Lining came out, when I was 20-odd, I’ve revered him and his playing. In many ways he just is the best guitar player. 
According to David Gilmour, Beck is still, after 40-something years since he came to prominence in the Yardbirds, the only person pushing forward in that way.
He’s never retreading old ground, he’s always looking for a new challenge.
Jeff’s scarily brilliant. Jeff’s a tightrope walker, I’m not. 
I like to cover all my bases and make myself secure with a great band of people and the music all rehearsed, and I just walk out there and if I didn’t even play anything it would still sound great.
Jeff’s different, he’s out there mining that seam.
I do not fully understand this last sentence, but it sounds good.

Headline: no medicine like the blues



Black Magic, by Yvonne P. Chireau,  looks at the origins, meaning, and uses of Conjure―the African American tradition of healing and harming that evolved from African, European, and American elements―from the slavery period to well into the twentieth century.

(University of California Press, 2003)
Illuminating a world that is dimly understood by both scholars and the general public, she describes Conjure and other related traditions, such as Hoodoo and Rootworking, writing richly detailed history that presents the voices and experiences of African Americans and shows how magic has informed their culture.
However, blues healing was primarily focused on the fixing of relationships that had gone awry, and the resolution of oppressive romantic entanglements.
Bullshit!
Blues' healing
Ambience was rather depressive, so there was the blues healing from some by aspectacular.

Finland’s president warns that EU can be losing out to strongman politics
Our president Sauli Niinisto says rising geopolitical risk should be a wake-up call for bloc.
 It’s difficult to get a seat at the table because it’s a table for the strong and powerful,
he says according to news agency Bloomber/FT.

As he reflects on the new age of strongman politics that has left little space for nations like his own on the world stage, Finland’s president momentarily abandons the understatement for which his country is renowned.
A Cossack takes everything which is Loose, so you have to have a very straight opinion and say it clearly.

To Donald Trump ..according to John Bolton,
on the topic of Mr Putin, Mr Sauli Niinisto cites an old Finnish proverb:
A Cossack takes everything which is Loose, so you have to have a very straight opinion and say it clearly.
Yes, but, mr Bolton, this is confidential discussion within the framework of national security. If its not, there is no such a thing as a national security.

Could it really be true that despite the best diplomatic efforts and political outreach, the occupant of the White House, once considered the most powerful person on the planet, doesn’t know that Finland is an independent country.
Yes, I Think that its a true.
Senior Research Fellow Charly Salonius-Pasternak says to News Now Finland -magazine that if true, the episode is surely more nuanced than it might appear.
Did he say it to John Bolton when he was already in office, at a point where he’s already spoken to Niinistö,
asks Salonius-Pasternak.
Salonius-Pasternak also says that on a positive not the president’s alleged comments are more of a reflection of what we already know about Donald Trump, rather than about Finland’s bilateral relationship with America.

Warning

Now The Facebook says the Donald Trump's offending ad contained an inverted red triangle similar to that used by the Nazis to label opponents such as communists. Facebook said the ads violated its policy against organised hate.
We don't allow symbols that represent hateful organisations or hateful ideologies unless they are put up with context or condemnation,
the social network's head of security policy, Nathaniel Gleicher, said on Thursday according to BBC.
So Facebook says it has removed adverts for US President Donald Trump's re-election campaign that featured a symbol used in Nazi Germany.
Mr Trump's campaign team said they were aimed at the far-left activist group antifa, which it said uses the symbol.

the weak

I like to see that.
The president of U.S. Donald Trump looks like A very weak commander-in-chief during sleepy West Point commencement address.
He delivered an address to West Point Academy graduates on Saturday, hoping to use the military to prop up his failing presidency, but it was a complete flop as he only reminded everyone watching just how weak he is.

1) The president stuck closely to the teleprompter,
2) with slowly delivering each word without the emotion or passion
3) he stumbled over words and names, while showing that he apparently isn’t strong enough to hold up a glass of water with one hand.
I hope this episode was the beginning of the end.

So Donald Trump has liked to reserve the term `sleepy´ for his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, but his speech to West Point cadets showed that maybe the president, not Biden, deserves the moniker.

Yes, Biden, sunglasses on his head looks like that only the blind stick is missing in a picture. But I guess it's just an image.
Perhaps U.S. dominance in the world has already ended.

En Sannfinne igen; riksåklagaren kräver att polisen inleder förundersökning kring Ano Turtiainens tweet

Detta Ano Turtiainens,Sannf,
 tweet togs senare bort.
Tidigare i veckan sade Helsingforspolisen att en förundersökning inte behöver inledas kring fallet. Men nu riksåklagaren kräver att en förundersökning ska inledas kring riksdagsledamot Ano Turtiainens, Sannf, tweet om George Floyd, rapporterar tidningen Demokraatti.
Men

Turtiainen hade lagt upp en bild på amerikanen George Floyd som var nertryckt på marken av en polis, på bilden hade hans ansikte färgats ljusrött och under bilden fanns texten Pink Floyd. Enligt riksåklagare Raija Toivanen är det möjligt att detta tweet handla om hets mot folkgrupp - så finns det viktigt att Turtiainen hörs eftersom att tweeten kan uppfattas som rasistisk.

Sannfinländarnas partiordförande Jussi Halla-aho säger att det kan finnas skäl att utesluta Turtiainen ur partiet om han inte har för avsikt att ansöka om att få komma tillbaka till Sannfinländarnas riksdagsgrupp.

Sannfinländarnas partistyrelse vill nu ha en utredning av Turtiainen om han tänker söka om medlemskap i riksdagsgruppen på nytt efter årsskiftet.
Om han inte bryr sig om att komma tillbaka till riksdagsgruppen sker utträdet ur partiet per automatik, 
sa Halla-aho.
Redan tidigare uteslöts Turtiainen ur den Sannfinländska riksdagsgruppen. Engligt Yle sade Ville Tavio, ordförande av riksdagsgruppen, att Turtiainen utslöts på grund av att han upprepade gånger betett sig opassande på sociala medier.

i förra weckan visade det sig också att tweeten fick följder för Turtiainens företag. Företaget samarbetade bland andra med det kanadensiska styrkelyftsförbundet, som meddelade att man bryter kontakten.
Turtiainen var tidigare styrkelyftare, och har han efter karriären satsat på att sälja gymredskap via sitt företag Metal Sport & Gear.

Skådespelaren Mimosa Willamo

Mimosa Willamo, finska filmskådespelare som fick en gång den Jussi-statyett för sin första roll i en långfilm. Efter det har hon gjort flera filmer och också spelat huvudrollen i TV-serien Lola uppochner.
Det ville hon förstås och det gick bra. Hon har varit Stina i Saltkråkan och Lotta på Bråkmakargatan. Hon berätter att har förtjänat sina egna fickpengar sedan hon var åtta år och det händer att hon dubbar ännu i dag.

Familjen gett tryggheten.
Vi har alltid tvingats hjälpa till mycket hemma. Men mamma och pappa ger också tillbaka hela tiden. De hinner sällan vara med oss en och en, men vi är tillsammans så ofta det går,
sa hon till Yle.
Att klara av en tuff bransch som tonåring kräver skinn på näsan. Det skinnet har hårdnat efter otaliga kamper med fyra bröder.
Storfamiljen ger tålighet och flexibilitet. Bröderna garanterar att man aldrig blir en diva. Mimosa är uppväxt i ett kaos av ljud och människor, och egen tid med föräldrarna var förstås en bristvara.

The boycott is expanding - and will it bite?

The American fitness company Elitefts announced on Friday the termination of its commercial cooperation with the company of TrueFinns-MP Ano Turtiainen, who has been under fire over a racist tweet in which he mocked the death of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis; now the same decision made by The CPU.
The CPU board has voted to ban all Metal gear from our platforms, effective immediately. We cannot condone the actions of the company founder or support his messages of disrespect.
We hope our athletes and partners will stand with us in supporting those who need it most right now.
Because The CPU wholeheartedly supports movements that support equality for all and believes our cultural and personal differences should be celebrated.
This includes the #BlackLivesMatter movement that has recently gained significant social traction.. As an organization, we do our best to act with honesty and integrity and conduct ourselves in a manner consistent with our values and we expect this from our athletes, sponsors and partners.
Turtiainen's firm produces and sells powerlifting gear, recreational gear and gym training equipment. According to its website, part of the company’s profile includes the promotion of powerlifting and related events.

Edward Colston went away


In Bristol the statue of Edward Colston which had stood for more than 120 years, has been toppled.
There were wild cheers as the statue was yanked off its plinth and later sprayed with paint and dumped in the harbour.

"That tweet was a mistake",

- On Friday, Elitefts announced the immediate end of its commercial relationship with Ano Turtiainen's company Metal Sport & Gear.
We have zero tolerance for anything so offensive such as the social media post that was made today by its founder,
this American company said.
- On Friday the parliamentary group of the far-right party True Finns decided to expel Ano Turtiainen temporarily, until the end of the year. Actually, permanently separated from the group.
This was some
shocking and simply wrong from the standpoint from universal human values.
Ano Turtiainen, a member of Finland’s populist party, has been expelled from the its parliamentary group in response to a series of racist social media posts by the lawmaker — the latest one was on George Floyd, tells Associated Press.

The opposition Finns Party decided Thursday to expel Ano Turtiainen from the group. He has since conceded it was racist, deleted the tweet and apologized to the party that was formerly known as the True Finns.
No.
He did not apologize nothing and he will not apply for readmission in the parliamentary group of the True Finns next year.
Turtiainen’s exit means meant the TrueFinns Party is no longer the largest group in the country’s parliament.

att "inte ångrar någonting"

Slutligen sannfinländarnas riksdagsledamot Ano Turtiainen kritiseras där för tweet om polisvåldet i USA - kan uteslutas ur riksdagsgruppen. I värsta fall kan Turtiainen straffas genom att uteslutas ur Sannfinländarnas riksdagsgrupp. Ordentligt.
Han är en upprepad brottsling.

Turtiainen tog på denna wecka ställning till fallet George Floyd och de rådande omständigheterna kring polisvåld i USA med ett inlägg på Twitter.
I inlägget ställde Turtiainen frågan (på finska):
Har ni märkt att mer `jämlikhet´ i ett välfärdsområde leder till mer härjande?
I inlägget fanns också en bild av George Floyd, nertryckt på marken av polis. Polisens knä är tryckt; mot Floyds nacke och hans ansikte har färgats ljusrött. Under bilden stod texten: "Pink Floyd".
 Inlägget innehöll en bild som gjorde narr av en död person. (Det har också tagits bort, men du kan se det) - yttrandefriheten är en central mänsklig rättighet, men att den inte är helt obegränsad.
Enligt en färsk obduktionsrapport kvävdes Floyd till döds till följd av det polisvåld han utsattes för. Hans död har väckt häftiga protester och demonstrationer, inte bara i USA utan också runt hela världen.
Vi vet att sanligen att det är inte första gången Ano Turtiainen har fått kritik för sitt beteende på sociala medier.
Turtiainens inlägg har kritiserats på sociala medier och anmälts till polisen flera gånger.
I skriverier på Facebook år 2015 berömde han personer som hade "tagit risker" och deltagit i "elimineringsuppdrag" riktade mot befintliga och planerade mottagningscentraler. Turtiainen dömdes till 50 dagsböter.
Turtiainen pekade också ut Finlands röda kors som "vår värsta fiende" och undrade om det inte var dags att
utvidga aktionerna mot fiendens ledning.
Efter domen uppgav Turtiainen till tidningen Länsi-Savo (egentligen Länkkäri, på finska) att han "inte ångrar någonting".

Police will soon investigate this crime?

Ano Turtiainen (true finns), who won a seat in the Parliament from Southern Finland, has tweeted about the case of George Floyd.
In this tweed (lately deleted) he asks, but the true essence of messages subtance, glorifies brutal violence and racist segregation of people.
Sure, The True Finns Party is not the only party with lawmakers with criminal convictions.
But Turtiainen in December 2015 described attempts to burn down reception centres as “elimination missions” that are crucial for “protecting our independence and security”.
Turtiainen filed an appeal against a fine issued on him for public incitement to an offence. He appeared before the Eastern Finland Court of Appeal in Kuopio in May 2019.

btw,
Syd Barrett created the name Pink Floyd. The name is derived from the given names of two blues musicians whose Piedmont blues records Barrett had in his collection, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council.

Distorted electric guitar

Jimmy Page with bow in1969.
the photo by Chris Walter
The Kinks are refuting a new BBC Radio 2 documentary that once again alleges the long-debunked myth that Jimmy Page played on their 1964 hit, You Really Got Me.
He has never say that he didn’t play on the track You Really Got Me.
Yes, he played just on that track, among other things.

We know  that Jimmy Page played lead guitar on The Who's Bald Headed Woman.
It explained how Jimmy Page ended up on lead for The Who´s Bald Headed Woman. Those the fuzz-pedal sounds, which droning throughout is played by Page.
The reason being, he owned the only fuzz box in the United Kingdom at that time.
Perhaps the first sucht this kind of Fuzz used by Jimmy Hendrix in America.
(today I have a similar one)

They did it in Iceland

I think ‘Immigrant Song’ was great. Having been to Iceland, where we wrote it, I could understand exactly how it caught me musically and the agitation of the music too. It was smooth, cool.
At radio station Q107 in 2010, Robert Plant shared the reason why this song The Immigrant Song (1970) meant so much to him.
We weren’t being pompous … We did come from the land of the ice and snow. We were guests of the Icelandic Government on a cultural mission. We were invited to play a concert in Reykjavik and the day before we arrived all the civil servants went on strike and the gig was going to be cancelled. The university prepared a concert hall for us and it was phenomenal.
Plant in Chris Welch's book his 1994 book Led Zeppelin, reflecting on the now iconic trip to Iceland.
The response from the kids was remarkable and we had a great time. ‘Immigrant Song’ was about that trip and it was the opening track on the album that was intended to be incredibly different.
I also like to play and sing this piece.
But why are there two completely different versions of it?
That the another version of The Song find from the remastered Zeb's III album.

för Dharma

en högtid - mycket mer 
Vesak Dagen infaller på fullmånedagen under den femte månaden enligt månkalendern. Detta menar att där pyntas med lampor som symboliserar att Buddha förde ljus till världen.

Där finns tre händelser under månaden i tibetansk buddhism med  Vesakhaanses av theravadatraditionen. Vesak är en buddhistisk högtid som firas till minne av Buddhas födelse, uppvaknande och parinirvana.
I högtiden är det Buddhas uppvaknande som har den viktigaste betydelsen, eftersom det är då som buddhismen börjar.

Vid sitt uppvaknande var Buddha 35 år och han spenderade sina återstående 45 år i livet med att vandra omkring på norra Indiens slätter och undervisa om sin lära, som han kallade Dharma
Det är en slags motsats till karma, ljusets väg.







Den här dagen är helig på t sätt.

a seamless collaboration considering

We know that Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis were making plans to record together in 1969.  Legend has it that Hendrix and Davis were hoping that Paul McCartney would join them on bass. And more: Jimi Hendrix wanted to form supergroup w/ Paul McCartney.
Jimi drew his own conclusion, it could be it could be "a seamless collaboration considering"

According to Far Out Magazine when Jimi Hendrix arrived on the scene in London he blew everybody away and really did change rock and roll almost overnight. His psychedelic musings may have even influenced Paul McCartney during the making of his masterpiece Sgt. Pepper. It would be under the influence of The Beatles that Hendrix would get his shot at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967. It’s fair to say that Hendrix was influenced by The Beatles too.

In 1969 Davis and Hendrix sent an impromptu telegram to Paul McCartney with the hope they might convince him to join their new supergroup. A telegram was sent to Apple Records on Oct. 21, 1969.
The note read
We are recording and LP together this weekend in NewYork. How about coming in to play bass stop call Alvan Douglas.
Peace Jimi Hendrix Miles Davis Tony Williams.
Unfortunately, the recording would never take place as Rolling Stone reports no one knows, what has happened.
It’s still unclear if McCartney was aware of the request. Beatles aide Peter Brown responded the next day, telling Hendrix and Davis that McCartney was out on vacation and wasn’t expected back for two weeks.
Unrealized history is interesting.
But official history is not interested in it.

from the psychopath

W
hat I know is this. Something is most assuredly amiss in the brain of the President of the United States. And he is the one with the nuclear codes.
Karen Shiebler
I write because it’s getting harder to march and because words are my only weapon. 
He is the one who has the nuclear codes, for sure.
I like this “missed the boat”
Then there is the repeated phrase “missed the call”. We have a few idioms that are close to this one (“missed the boat” or “missed the mark” come to mind.) But we don’t say “missed the call” unless we mean a phone call. Or we’re referring to a sports referee.

So it goes ..

We saw the same lack (like before) of comprehension this week when Trump was asked about having second thoughts on his trade war with China.
Mr. President, do you have any second thoughts about escalating the trade war with China?
Yeah. Sure. Why not? Might as well, might as well.
Once again, he completely failed to understand the question. A question which was then repeated by a different journalist, to which he replied,
I have second thoughts about everything.
Did he even understand the meaning of  `second thoughts´? I am not at all sure.
 i see.
