Beautiful Marquis

This woman was born in New York in 1931. June 3, 2011-th it was exactly 80.
She grew up in poverty – the mother raised her alone, and during the war and immediately after it, even in wealthy by our standards the United States was not sweet. Sometimes the mother even had to take my daughter to a boarding school for several weeks or even months: money to feed the child, critically lacking. Modest and shy girl dreams of becoming a ballerina, but transferred rheumatic fever struck out this possibility.

Carmen has become a model by chance: One day, when the 14-year-old girl riding in a bus with lessons, it sat down a young woman and offered to try his hand as a model. Husband stranger, who shot for Harper’s Bazaar, did test shots, and soon his mother Carmen, received a letter with photographs, which stated that her daughter – a very nice polite girl, but unfortunately, it is not photogenic.

Dell’Orefays signed a contract with the magazine, under which she earned $ 7.50 per hour, and began working with the most outstanding photographers of the period: Cecil Beaton, Irving Penn, Horst P. Horst. A year later, in 1946, she graced the cover of Vogue, and soon appeared on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar. Her fees rose to 60 dollars per week (equivalent to a thousand dollars today).

So the 15-year-old Carmen started her own family have. Ahead were three failed marriages, the birth of her daughter, a successful career and its inevitable decline when the ‘age came up. ”

After her divorce from third husband and more than a decade of interruption of Carmen was at a crossroads. She was 47 years old – the age, who (as it was thought) no longer allows you to work in the fashion industry. She did not try, but success came to her county ways. At a party Carmen met her friend, photographer Norman Parkinson, who suddenly asked her to try to do a photo session. You know, – he said – are you fucking attractive old bag. Carmen then just beginning to turn gray, and decided instead to dye your hair, lighten them, stressing the gray hair.

So in the fashion world very different image emerged Dell’Orefays: mature, independent, sexy and … gray!

In 1993 he debuted in Dell’Orefays movie, playing a small role in “The Age of Innocence” by Martin Scorsese. This was followed by another appearance in several films and TV series.

In 2000, Carmen defile on the show John Galliano for Christian Dior. After that she came out in the Guinness Book of Records as the “podium model with the longest career.” This was followed by the appearance on the show Jean-Paul Gaultier, Hermes, Donna Karan and Moschino.

And now Carmen continues to operate successfully, while remaining an excellent example of that age and beauty – the concept of fully compatible.

In pictures and videos: the life of ‘mad dog’ Muammar Gaddafi

In pictures and videos: the life of ‘mad dog’ Muammar Gaddafi

MUAMMAR GADDAFI, THE man who ruled Libya with an iron fist for over 40 years is dead, killed in a raid on his hometown of Sirte, where he had fled in the aftermath of an uprising which pushed him from power.

Gaddafi had outlasted seven US presidents, one of whom tried to assassinate him and had in the aftermath of 9/11 appeared to court favour with the West.

But it was the very people whom he ruled who grew increasingly restless with his autocratic regime. His death was confirmed by Libya’s interim premier Mahmoud Jibril and came as Libyan fighters defeated Gaddafi’s last holdouts in Sirte, the last major site of resistance in the country.

In February, inspired by events in other north African nations such as Tunisia and Egypt, the Libyan people rose up against Gaddafi and with the aid of NATO air forces, they took control of Tripoli in August, effectively ending his 41-year rule.
Raised in a tent

Born in June of 1942, Gaddafi was part of the Bedouin, a desert-dwelling Arab ethnic group. He was raised in a tent near Sirte and attended Muslim schools before entering a military academy in Benghazi in 1961 from which he graduated in 1966.

It was from Benghazi that as a lieutenant in the Libyan army, 27-year-old Gaddafi led a bloodless coup against the then ruler King Idris and together with his loyal followers established a new Libyan Arab Republic.

Gaddafi is said by Al Jazeera to have modelled himself on the Egyptian ruler Gamal Abdul Nasser whose nationalistic streak led to the Suez Crisis of 1956 in which the UK, France and Israel fought a brief but disastrous and deeply embarrassing war against Egypt.

Here is Gaddafi with his ally Nasser in 1969:

The early years of Gaddafi’s rule were marked by his declaration of a cultural revolution in which he set up People’s Committees, formed to take over businesses and silence dissidents who expressed discontent with his rule. Many of these dissidents simply disappeared.

In the late 1970s, Gaddafi published three volumes of his famous Green Book which presents an alternative to both socialism and capitalism combined with aspects of Islam. As part of his Green Book-based revolution, Gaddafi changed the official name of the country to the ‘Great Socialist Popular Libyan Arab Jamahiriyah’ (State of the Masses) in 1977.
Foreign intervention

He exercised total control of the government and even established a calendar which was based on the death of Prophet Muhammad.

Here is Gaddafi explaining his policies in an interview with the BBC broadcast in 1976:

Gaddafi’s political and social ideals were not confined to Libya. He was a supporter both idealogically and financially of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation and funded groups such as the IRA in the North and the leftist FARC guerillas in Colombia.

In his interview with the BBC he argued that countries like Libya have a duty to intervene in other nations where it is believed that ordinary people are being oppressed by autocratic governments.
Mad dog

For years, relations with the west were fraught. In 1986, a bombing on a Berlin nightclub in which three people were killed, including two US servicemen, and hundreds injured led to US airstrikes on Tripoli which directly targeted the Gaddafi compound.

The man himself survived, labelled by then US president Ronald Reagan as the “Mad Dog of the Middle East”.

Gaddafi denied involvement in the 1988 Lockerbie bombing in which 270 people were killed after Pan Am flight flying over the Scottish village of Lockerbie blew up.

But he was later forced to handover two of the men accused of the bombing, one of whom, Abdulbaset Al Megrahi, was later controversially released on compassionate grounds from a Scottish prison, returning to Libya where he is now said to be close to death.

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States, Gaddafi joined the west in fighting Al Qaeda, surrendering his weapons of mass destruction in 2003 and forming relationships with western leaders:
http://www.thejournal.ie/in-pictures-and-videos-the-life-of-mad-dog-muammar-gaddafi-258922-Oct2011/

He even addressed the 64th General Assembly of the United Nations in 2009, reeling off a lengthy list of demands including compensation for the colonisation of African countries which he said meant that Europe owed some $7.7 trillion:

The end

But it was the the sight of revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt which inspired the ordinary Libyan people who had become disillusioned with Gaddafi’s rule to rise up against him.

Rebels forces first took control of the eastern city of Benghazi from where Gaddafi had many years ago launched his own revolution.

Rebel forces, who politically became known as the National Transitional Council, effectively partitioned the country in two as Gaddafi retained control of the west repelling attacks from the rebels.

Eventually, Nato got involved as western leaders grew increasingly concerned with Gaddafi’s rhetoric and his vows to crush people who rose up against him. A series of televised addresses showed Gaddafi waving his Green Book and being steadfastly defiant.

But when Tripoli fell in August, he fled his compound, on the run since there have been sightings but it was only today that it could be confirmed that he is dead.

Somewhat bizarrely, a US television sitcom broadcast in 1987 seemed to predict Gaddafi would die in 2011 (thanks to Oliver Walker/@locke24 for the tip). Let the conspiracy theories begin…


EU quest to save euro raises fear of ‘two-speed’ Europe

EU quest to save euro raises fear of ‘two-speed’ Europe
In the scramble for tighter policing of Europe’s economies to save the euro, the bloc faces breaking up into “in” and “out” nations of a two-speed EU — and Britain risks dropping off the map altogether.

In the scramble for tighter policing of Europe’s economies to save the euro, the bloc faces breaking up into “in” and “out” nations of a two-speed EU — and Britain risks dropping off the map altogether.

At a summit Sunday to chart an escape route from Europe’s sovereign debt crisis, European Union leaders will look at ways of putting a single pilot in the seat to steer the 17 nations that share the troubled nearly 13-year-old currency back to economic health.

But any decision to tighten economic governance and budgetary discipline will leave 10 of the EU’s 27 nations sitting on the outside, including four — Britain, the Czech Republic, Denmark and Hungary — which to date have refused to join the euro-club.

“The federal core which is needed to save the euro means inevitably a less engaged periphery,” Britain’s Andrew Duff, a member of the European parliament, wrote in the Financial Times this week.

“The outcome will be not just a two-speed Europe, which we have had for years, but a two-tier Europe in which the UK is in a minority pursuing different objectives,” he warned.

The warning came as British MPs next week prepare to vote on whether to hold a national referendum on staying or leaving the bloc — or negotiating a looser relationship based on trade and cooperation.

Faced with growing euroscepticism at home, British leaders in recent weeks have denied plans to repatriate, instead calling for stabilisation of the eurozone in London’s own interests.

“A successful EU is impossible without a successful eurozone,” Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg told The Economist last month. “It’s good for all of us, whether you’re in the eurozone or not, to make sure that it doesn’t lead to a fracturing.”

So a European finance minister? A super-commissioner? The October 23 summit is expected to explore a range of new governance ideas on the table and for the least approve one, a French-German call for the appointment of a “Monsieur Euro” — EU president Herman Van Rompuy.

If agreed as expected, according to EU sources, Van Rompuy would not only preside EU summits but would, with the help of new staff, organise twice-yearly eurozone summits aimed at streamlining policy decisions between the 17 to avoid a replay of the contagion currently threatening the entire zone.

The move would underpin new rules to be agreed at the summit to force states to submit their annual budgets ahead of passage and to slap sanctions on offenders.

But the idea of a “Monsieur Euro” is not to everyone’s liking.

The European Central Bank has called for a European finance minister, but that seems impossible in the short-term as it would require a painful change in the bloc’s founding treaty.

Fed up like many other EU states with diktats and done deals from Paris and Berlin, the Dutch favour a new super-Commissioner to prevent states going off the economic rails.

“The European Commission needs to play a strict and independent role in this, identifying the inherent weaknesses and risks of national economies,” said Dutch Economic Affairs Minister Maxime Verhagen.

Whatever the outcome, friction between the “ins” and the “outs” is on the increase.

Eastern power Poland, which currently holds the rotating EU chairmanship, has given a cool reception to the idea of closer integration of the 17 eurozone members, pointing to the risk of a two-speed Europe — despite the fact it is in no hurry to adopt the single currency.

“But do you prefer a two-speed Europe or a no-speed Europe that gets stuck and then collapses?,” retorted Poland’s central bank chief Marek Belka.

“If today the best way to save the eurozone is further budgetary integration, or even political integration within the framework of some kind of federalism, then we cannot prevent it and we should not protest against it,” he added.

Analyst Thomas Fischer, of the Bertelsmann Stiftung foundation in Brussels, took the argument a step further in a comment this week, arguing that now was the time to drive growth rather than austerity and “to take a daring qualitative leap of further integration”.

“What we need is, first of all, a more courageous approach — including the establishment of a European Treasury as well as a much stronger coordination of anti-cyclical economic policies.”

“We should also take into consideration whether the time has come for a two-speed Europe. A treaty change procedure enabling those member states, which ratify them, to go ahead would be the most pragmatic way to set the new course of integration.”

What are the human needs?

In Uncategorized on October 20, 2011 at 7:36 am

What are the human needs? Why do most of us human beings go to work each day, why do we live with a partner, why do we have children? What are we trying to achieve in all of this? What indeed are we striving for? Is it merely to obtain food, to procreate, or do we want to purchase as many objects as possible, possess company shares, make careers for ourselves, go down in history, exercise power over others?

Women in Rural Argentina Speak Out on Climate Change

Women in Rural Argentina Speak Out on Climate Change

RESISTENCIA, Argentina, Oct 13, 2011 (IPS) – Rural and indigenous women in northern Argentina, hit hard by the expanding agricultural frontier, deforestation and the spraying of toxic pesticides, spoke out about their problems and set forth proposals for discussion at the next global summit on climate change.

They did so at the Women’s Hearing on Gender and Climate Justice 2011-Argentina, held Tuesday Oct. 11 in Resistencia, the capital of Chaco province, 950 km north of Buenos Aires, attended by representatives of organisations from the northern 10 of the country’s 23 provinces.

These women are on the front line of indiscriminate logging, erosion, loss of biodiversity, drought, floods and pesticide pollution. They are all too familiar with the impact of the productive model that is exacerbating global warming, and they are demanding a stop to it.

“When the trees are cut down, we lose the rain, we lose everything, we are left without water, without firewood and without crops,” said Basilea Barrientos from Colonia Aborigen, in Chaco. “Our community has always believed that when resources are used, they must be replaced.”

“When the forests are felled, the wind blows the soil away, cold and heat become extreme, campesinos (small farmers) emigrate and agribusiness companies fumigate us,” Jorgelina Córdoba, of the Indigenous Campesino Assembly of Formosa province, told IPS.

Córdoba is well aware of what she is talking about. A widow with 11 children, she lives in the place where she was born, Bañado La Estrella (a wetland created by annual flooding of the Pilcomayo river), where she leads the resistance against the encroaching bulldozers.

“We know how to raise cattle on arid land, but now the campesinos are leaving, and the trees on their lands are being felled to make way for soy,” she complained.

Soy is now Argentina’s top export crop; the transgenic variety resistant to glyphosate, an herbicide, is grown on a large scale for export to Asia. However, spraying with glyphosate destroys biodiversity and harms human health.

Cándida Fernández of the Formosa Campesino Movement told IPS that in her village, Loma Senés, children are being born with malformations caused by the toxic herbicide. Local people are also being affected by the spread of cattle feedlots.

Unlike traditional ranching in Argentina, in which cattle range freely and feed on natural pasture, expansion of soy crops has caused cattle to be raised in feedlots where the animals are confined in pens and fed on grains. “The smell is unbearable, and they are only metres away from houses and the school,” Fernández said.

Next to the fields where small farmers grow crops using sustainable techniques, waste channels from feedlots carry endless flows of animal dung, urine, and even carcasses.

The hearing was convened by Global Call to Action against Poverty (GCAP), a coalition of NGOs, and the Feminist Task Force, affiliated to GCAP, which works on underlining poverty as a women’s issue and calls for “gender equality to end poverty.”

Similar hearings and tribunals will be held in October and November in another 14 countries in Latin America, Africa and Asia, as part of the “Strengthening Voices: Search for Solutions” 2011 Women’s Tribunals.

In Argentina the hearing was organised by the Institute for Social Development and Human Promotion (INDES) which is part of the Encuentro network, a member of GCAP. In an interview with IPS, INDES representative Analía Delssin said the aim is for the conclusions and contributions of the hearing to reach decision-makers at national and global level.

The hearing was presided over by a tribunal made up of one member of INDES and two women from organisations affiliated to GCAP.

A report documenting the women’s testimonies and proposals will be drawn up and sent to the 17th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 17), to be held in Durban, South Africa Nov. 28-Dec. 9.

Delssin said climate justice is about highlighting the fact that some groups are more vulnerable to climate change than others. Among the more vulnerable groups are women, and especially rural women. “They have to walk further to fetch water, firewood, and craft materials, and they struggle to care for their sick children who get respiratory illnesses from exposure to pollution,” she said.

But women are also the people who are most knowledgeable about the problem, and they are part of the solution, so they should participate when decisions are taken about measures and financing for adaptation and mitigation of the effects of climate change. In fact, several women brought valuable experiences of mitigation to the hearing, such as teachers in rural schools in Chaco, who are developing educational programmes to promote sustainable farming based on agroecological principles, in spite of resistance from neighbours who farm in the traditional way.

Lucrecia Marcelli, head of the School of Family Agriculture in the Chaco town of General San Martín, said that her secondary level students have an organic vegetable garden, and have shown neighbouring producers that cotton can be grown without the chemicals that the other farmers use to the detriment of the school.

Maria Amelia Bertoldi, from a primary school near Pampa del Infierno, in Chaco, talked about a programme to train “eco-guardians” to protect the environment. They are students and teachers who take part in studying and analysing toxic agricultural chemicals, environmental laws and other activities to promote eco-friendly development.

Examples of eco-friendly agricultural production were also presented, for instance by Zunilde Poggio of the Bella Vista Ecological Association, in a rural area in Corrientes province, where some 20 families produce natural foods.

“The goals of agroecology are food sovereignty, respect for biodiversity and natural resources, avoidance of toxic chemicals and of air, water and soil pollution. And it is not large-scale farming, it does not use hired labour but instead encourages families to stay rooted to the land,” she told IPS.

However, this form of environmentally friendly farming is under threat. “We have three large rice plantations nearby, where they use pesticides, and we have not been able to get the 1994 law against toxic agricultural chemicals enforced,” Poggio complained.

“We must change the large-scale agricultural production model, which causes pollution and employs only a few people. That is what summits like Durban are for,” she said.

And it is the Durban summit that the dozens of rural women – whose meeting in Resistencia was held just ahead of the International Day of Rural Women, to be celebrated Oct. 15 – are determined to reach with their proposals and testimonies about the impacts they are already feeling on their environment, production and way of life.
