A l’heure où, une fois de plus, notre pays est frappé par le terrorisme islamique, l’A.P.M. –qui s’incline devant les victimes et exprime sa pleine solidarité avec les forces de…

Or, on ne peut manquer à cet égard d’être perplexe et inquiet devant certaines des perspectives que peut ouvrir ce scrutin.

Non point en raison de la présence, parmi les candidats, d’un hurluberlu qui fait campagne pour... le désarmement des policiers (on veut croire qu’il restera dans sa marginalité), mais, parce qu’un autre –à qui les augures donnent des chances sérieuses-, s’est manifesté, au-delà des postures électorales de circonstance, par un comportement qui trahit un très préoccupant déficit de crédibilité à cet égard, en étant capable, pour complaire aux responsables d’une puissance étrangère et peu amicale envers la France, et, en leur présence, de renier l’histoire de son pays, et, pire, l’insulter, au mépris tant de la vérité des faits que de la plus élémentaire connaissance du droit : or, s’agissant du thème particulièrement sensible, dans certains milieux, de la colonisation, c’était là, en dehors même de l’indignité morale et civique du propos, cautionner et alimenter des discours de haine envers la France que ce thème cristallise et qui sont l’un des humus nourriciers de la radicalisation islamiste, autant qu’un prétexte facile au prosélytisme de cette dernière auprès d’esprits faibles ou mal informés. Irresponsable comportement, qui trahit un esprit de démission, s’inscrivant dans une vraie logique « munichoise » et qui devrait, de ce fait, disqualifier son auteur (qui vient encore de confirmer qu’il ne reniait rien de sa pensée), pour l’accession à une telle responsabilité de chef de guerre. Est-ce vraiment là le signal que notre peuple veut aujourd’hui adresser à ses agresseurs ?

Prelude to War: United Kingdom   

Cache   

After World War I, Great Britain was marked by the death of a million of her young men, more than she was to lose in World War II. Her leaders, many old men overdue for retirement whose replacements were dead in Flanders field, were gripped by the memory of their war dead. The true horror of trench warfare had been kept from the British public, but not to the same extent that the German public was. With the returning armies came graphic descriptions of the violence and fear of massive unemployment.

Throughout the twenties, Great Britain faced industrial conflict. The war had proved that men of all classes died together, seriously shaking the foundation of Edwardian culture. The abdication of the King Edward VIII in 1936 to marry a divorced American woman is the most striking example of how English class lines were beginning to blur.

In “exile” during the thirties was a master politician who had planned the disastrous Gallipoli campaign in 1915 and went to France as a lieutenant. Winston S. Churchill had come out of World War I critical of the Versailles Treaty and warning of the danger of a rearmed Germany.

In the 1930's he was a Member of Parliament from his lifelong family home. Often ignored, he was still a colorful figure who dined with T.E. Lawrence and greeted his children with guttural animal noises instead of their Christian names. Half American, he was nevertheless British to the core and believed absolutely in the greatness and majesty of Great Britain.

Churchill watched the policy of appeasement that marked the thirties and waited for the coming storm. His arguments for increased defense spending during a depression went unheeded as the British government sought to stop the economic chaos by cutting back spending. He watched the growing Nazi movement and once waited to meet Hitler in Berlin, who never showed.

History would prove that Churchill was meant to be a wartime Prime Minister, not a peacetime one. After Neville Chamberlain returned from Munich, the world thought it was safe from another global war. Within a few months, antiaircraft guns would be placed around London, and her young men would once again be sent to die in France. The British people faced the war with a twinge of resentment over another war, but determined to see it through. Within a year Churchill would be Prime Minister and Great Britain would stand alone against Nazi Germany.


          

Czechoslovakia in World War II   

Cache   

Adolf Hitler had completed Anschluss with Austria and now was looking towards lands not traditionally part of “Greater Germany.” The Sudetenland, a narrow strip of mountainous land in Czechoslovakia, held a predominantly ethnic German population on the border with Germany.

The Sudetenland was important to the Czechs for two reasons: the mountains were a natural defense against German aggression, and most of their man-made fortifications were located there. If the Sudetenland were to fall, the whole of Czechoslovakia would be open to German occupation. Also in the region were most of the Czech coal, electric, and iron and steel works.

Against the guarantee of Czech border integrity by her geography, they also entered into a treaty with the French to protect them against any aggressors. French had signed this treaty after World War I to actualize the new political map of Europe.

In the summer of 1938, the Nazis had an experienced political and paramilitary organization set up to ferment pro-Nazi dissent and smash their opposition. Nazi sympathizers, Czech and German, began to enter Czechoslovakia and the Sudetenland to fight with Communists, Social Democrats, and Socialists, their traditional enemies, and to focus attention on the supposed plight of the ethnic Germans. Most of these ethnic Germans did not want to be part of Germany, and many did not even speak German.

After street battles like those of Hitler’s rise to power and Austrian Anschluss, Hitler demanded the Sudetenland from Czechoslovakian President Eduard Benes. Benes turned to Britain for help, especially to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain.

Chamberlain was a man who did not comprehend the circumstances in which he lived. The world was changing far more rapidly than he could handle. He knew that Britain did not possess the arms to fight a renewed German Wehrmacht. He sought to appease Hitler, and flew to Munich on September 29 to discuss the Czechoslovakian crisis. Also joining the discussion was Italian Duce Benito Mussolini and French Premier Edouard Daladier. Benes was not present, nor any Czech representative.

Chamberlain essentially sacrificed Czechoslovakia on the altar of appeasement. In exchange for the Sudetenland, Hitler promised to guarantee the new Czech borders. Eduard Benes immediately resigned, and Czechoslovakia would not be guaranteed. Parts of the country were broken off by Poland and Hungary, and on March 15, 1939, German troops entered Prague. Czechoslovakia ceased to exist.

A Czech and Slovak brigade was set up in Poland and fought the Germans the following September. Benes fled to London and set up a government in exile after the invasion of Poland.

The Czech Skoda munitions works made tanks for the Panzer legions, and the country was broken up into districts. The Czech monuments were taken down, streets and plazas renamed for prominent Nazis, and the singing of Czech songs forbidden. The Slovak region under Czech Nazi and Roman Catholic Priest Josef Tiso was second only to Germany in enacting anti-Semitic laws. Over 70,000 Slovak Jews died in concentration camps.

The Czechs responded with guerrilla activity, underground resistance, and uprisings. A Special Operations Executive Operation dropped Czech agents into Prague, where they murdered SS Deputy Protector Reinhard Heydrich in 1942. The entire town of Lidice was executed in reprisal; the men locked in the town church and burned to death. The women and children were sent to a concentration camp.

After the liberation of Czechoslovakia by the Allies in 1945, Benes returned to power and authorized the forced removal of the ethnic Germans from the Sudetenland and Hungarians from Slovakia. Thousands died on the march.

Benes was elected to form an interim government in 1946. That was the last election until 1989. Czechoslovakia became a Soviet satellite.

Riding Europe: Two Americans in the Alps   

Cache   

Special guest post by Lori Taylor.

An AltRider supporter from the very beginning, Lori is “a friend of the family.” She’s active in the local riding community, which is how she met Jeremy and Brianna several years ago. Lori is an excellent rider, can make Jeremy feel slow, and is great about passing on her own hard-earned riding knowledge. When she and her husband Tom returned from their first riding trip through Europe, we asked her to share their story with everyone. Read on.

==

Riding a motorcycle in the Alps was a big bucket list item for me and my husband, Tom.  Now that we’ve done it, we know it was worthy of such a list.  It was one of the coolest things I have ever done; slightly below marrying Mr. Tom Taylor and perhaps slightly above riding a dirt bike in the Cascade Mountains.  We did a guided tour with Edelweiss Bike Tours that took us through Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Liechtenstein over a period of six days.  The tour was all around top-notch: great route, very capable and helpful guides, high-end hotels, incredible food, new motorcycles, minimal stopping & screwing around.  The tour was focused first on riding and second on gawking at the scenery, just the way we like it. 

Lori Taylor

We were excited to see the van pull up to the hotel with a trailer stacked full of bikes the first day.  We had signed up to ride identical bikes, the BMW F650 GS, but it turns out they put me on a Triumph Tiger 800 while Tom got the promised GS. 

Lori Taylor 

Very similar bikes with 19” front tires and quite linear, mellow but capable engines -- they worked great for the riding that we did.  There were two guides and 23 tourists.  Five of the bikes were ridden two-up for a total of 20 bikes split into two groups each day.  The tourists were all from North & South America, the guides were from Austria & Germany.  All of the bikes were less than a year old, one BMW had just 8 km on the odo when the tour started. 

Lori Taylor

The first day of riding was began pretty mellow as we traveled through the countryside approaching the Alps.  What wasn’t mellow was learning the European roads and driving habits.  Motorcycles trump automobiles in this neck of the woods.  You never just ride along behind a car or truck.  Apparently, cars must be tail-gated and then passed as soon as possible.  Most roads do not have a center line, perhaps because the roads aren’t really wide enough for two full lanes.  Due to the topography there is rarely what we would consider a “good” place to pass, so you just go for it and oncoming traffic usually makes room for you.  Speed limits are not adhered to by anyone and the rarely seen police don’t care.  It almost felt like a video game, but with substantial consequences if you lose the game. 

Lori Taylor

Near the Germany-Austria border we started climbing into the mountains and things got really fun. 

Lori Taylor

The biggie of the day was Grossglockner Pass.  Of the several dozen mountain passes we did on this trip, this one was my favorite.  It was steep and flowed well, but also had lots of sharp switchbacks interspersed with ample space to pass (by Euro standards). 

Lori Taylor

Twisting it a little too hard exiting corners, I found the limits of traction offered by the Tourance on the back of theTiger.  YAHOO! 

Lori Taylor

At the top of the pass we visited “The Biker’s Nest” where the view of the road and surrounding mountains was breathtaking.  The switchbacks were all numbered from the bottom up on big blue signs that read Kehre #__ in the apex.  This numbering was done on the main road (which was paved) and up the spur road up to The Biker’s Nest (which was cobblestones).  We stayed in Lienz, Austria that night and had our first bidet sighting in our hotel room.  The bathrooms would sure be a lot roomier if they left those things out!

Lori Taylor

Day 2 of riding took us into northern Italy and the Dolomite Mountains.  This is ground zero for European sportbike riders.  Bikes are everywhere and for good reason, the roads there are built for bikes. 


Lori Taylor

We rode for two days in the Dolomites and I’m certain that motorcycles outnumbered cars and trucks.  Our van driver, Roberto, who transported our luggage between hotels each day for us, laid out a beautiful picnic near the top of Falzarego Pass for lunch.

Lori Taylor

About the time we finished eating, some Italian Army newbies walked out of the mountains from a multi-day training mission.  We offered up our leftovers to them, which they were very happy to get.  It’s a rare ride when you take a break to chow down with the Italian Army.  In early afternoon we did Passa de Gardena which was epic riding and scenery!  Tom and I went back and did it again and took some action shots while everyone else in our group stopped for coffee. 

Lori Taylor

Day 3 was shown on the schedule as a “rest day” in Bolzano, Italy.  About ½ of the people in the group elected to ride anyway, including us, but we were the only ones to head out without a guide.  While the others pointed north, Tom and I went for a great ride by ourselves in the Dolomites, hitting five more passes.  It was really fun exploring and navigating in this region.  We went into a couple little villages in the mountains and saw some great stuff from every day Bavarian life where any grouping of more than about five homes requires a village name and a church. 

Lori Taylor

The roads winding between buildings are a pretty tight squeeze sometimes, with someone having to stop if two cars approach at the same time.  Every home and business has flower boxes on the front of it and a massive stash of firewood.  We saw a couple logging operations in swing and log trucks carrying logs that were 14 feet long; can’t haul anything longer due to the tight, twisty roads.  The whole area is very motorcycle-friendly.  On Passo di Rolle, which is a seriously fun ride, we saw roadsigns encouraging safe motorcycle riding so that you can continue to “live the life”.  Those made me smile.

Lori Taylor

Leaving Bolzano on day 4 we headed west with the first stop at a town called Glurns.  Shortly after being destroyed in the Engadin War, Glurn was rebuilt in the 16th century including a 30 foot high wall all around it. 

Lori Taylor

It is a crowded yet charming little medieval town all paved with square stones in a cool pattern.  Visiting Glurns allowed us to stretch and get ready for Passo del Stelvio (a.k.a. Stilfserjoch).  It was built in the early 1800’s with 48 switchbacks up the eastern side that work you over!  This was pretty technical riding, all of it in 1st & 2nd gear.  Bummer deal, one of the riders in our group crashed on a switchback headed up the pass.  He got whiskey throttle exiting a switchback and hucked his 1200 Beemer over the side.  The rider was bumped & bruised; the BMW had to be returned due to a cracked valve cover hemmoraging oil.  After that drama, I enjoyed a very spirited ride to the top of the pass with lots of “yahooing” going on.  Riding down the west side of Stelvio we were passed by a bright red Ferrari that was hauling ass!  It was really cool to see a car like that doing what it was built for. 

Lori Taylor

After Stelvio we rode over Passo de Gavia, which is basically a paved trail.  I loved it!  If they paved the Teanaway trail system in the Cascades, it would look like this road.  The day ended in Pontresina, Switzerland at a beautiful hotel with an amazing mountain view.

On the 5th day of this trip of a lifetime we knocked out a few more fun mountain passes in Switzerland.  We saw a Lambourghini tearing up one of those passes, what a beautiful sound that was!  We left that country for a quick ride through Liechtenstein.  The most entertaining thing that happened in Liechtenstein was that two riders in our group got pulled over for running a red light.  A couple of former police officers in our group circled back and traded some California police patches to the cops for allowing them to ride away without a ticket.  Good stuff!  We ate lunch in a really cool old fort and finally this extremely hot day of riding ended in Warth, Austria at a little ski resort.  The post-ride swim in the hotel pool and several semi-cold beers were well deserved.

On our final day of the tour I managed to drag up out of bed early, hike up the mountain and catch a sunrise.  Kind of a big deal since I started at 5000’ elevation, the road/trail was so steep that my heels weren’t even touching the ground and I was wearing a leather jacket.  It was worth it though. 

Lori Taylor

Pretty casual day of riding, as we dropped out of the mountains to flatter ground.  We got another fantastic picnic that day and then stopped at a small ski resort to ride the luge.  It scared me, but Tom and most everyone else enjoyed the hell out of it.  Late in the afternoon we visited the rather obnoxious Castle Linderhof (I think they probably are all obnoxious) built by King Ludwig II in the late 19th century.  Next up was a stretch of the Autobahn.  We all rode as fast as our bikes or common sense would allow.  For Tom and me it was the bikes limiting us.  The Tiger did 200 kmh (125 mph) and the BMW 196 kmh (121 mph) for as long as we were willing to hold it.  A couple cars passed on in the midst of this craziness, including a Lotus - never seen one of those before.  We ended back near Munich for a very nice final dinner with the group and then flew to Rome in the morning for a motorcycle-free week of site-seeing.

The weather for our ride was fantastic, running in the 80’s and 90’s every day.  Got pretty sweaty most days, but it was just a warm-up for Rome and certainly worth it to see such amazing scenery and experience what I’m calling the best motorcycling roads in the world.

Lori Taylor

A week later we flew home from Rome via Berlin.  Flying over the Alps we saw fresh snow where there was none while we were riding there just a week earlier.  Timing is everything!

Ehi, ma mi fate arrossire! Io lo avevo presentato aspettandomi critiche (costruttive, per carità!), e invece guarda un po'! @Nicola: scherzavo! Ma sono felice che ti sia così piaciuto, non avevo ben capito in effetti la tua opinione dal primo commento, anche se avevo intuito un certo apprezzamento. @Luca: "Tutto sacrosantamente vero tranne “nella vita ciò che conta non è affatto la forma”. Nella vita la forma conta eccome, anzi è quasi tutto. Siamo ciò che facciamo, Elisa." Come è vero. Solo che, vedi, se dicessi che nella vita la forma conta più della sostanza, come credo nell'arte, direi una cosa che non credo, o che credo solo in parte. La forma è tutto. Ma credo che nella vita non si possa avere solo forma, la sostanza è necessaria. Poi la sostanza è visibile nella forma, la forma diventa sostanza ecc. ecc. ma non si può fare a meno della sostanza. In arte no: dimmi tutto quel che vuoi, ma fammi vedere la forma, perché solo attraverso la forma mi comunichi la sostanza... ecco, devo forse lavorare ancora su questo concetto e ti ringrazio, è un passaggio che rappresenta senza dubbio un maillot faible... Quanto alla verità, non mi azzarderei mai a entrare nel filosofico... non sono decisamente all'altezza. Quello cui mi riferivo è la verità nell'arte. "Truth, reality" queste le parole chiave degli autori che amo e che di realista non hanno nulla (Woolf, Eliot, Mansfield) ma hanno tanta verità all'interno delle proprie opere... quanta verità contiene la "manciata di polvere" di Eliot! @Francesca: che dire... grazie e ancora grazie. Sono molto imbarazzata...!

Comité permanent de la citoyenneté et de l'immigration

Bienvenue. Je suis vraiment heureux que vous soyez ici. J'ai eu plusieurs fois l'occasion de visiter l'Allemagne. Je suis arrivé ici en tant que réfugié hongrois en 1957 et nous sommes restés dans un camp de réfugiés en Autriche. Le premier mot d'allemand que j'ai appris était nicht versteher. C'est ce que tout le monde ne cessait de me répéter lorsque j'essayais de leur parler en hongrois. J'ai été très heureux de constater la réunification de l'Allemagne, lorsque des Allemands de l'Est sont passés par la Hongrie pour aller à l'Ouest démanteler le mur de Berlin. Cela a véritablement entraîné la destruction du rideau de fer.

Je vis dans la région de Kitchener-Waterloo. On surnommait Kitchener Berlin. Nous comptons une forte proportion de personnes en provenance de l'Allemagne. Comme vous le savez probablement, notre fête Oktoberfest est la deuxième en importance après celle de Munich, et s'il vous est impossible d'aller en Allemagne, vous pouvez certainement venir à Kitchener-Waterloo pendant l'Oktoberfest. J'invite donc mes collègues à le faire. Lorsque le comité parlementaire précédent a fait cette visite, nous avons eu une réception au Club Concordia.

C'est donc très bien.


          

Pengalaman musim sejuk di Hokkaido, Jepun   

Cache   

Bila dah masuk hujung tahun, ramai antara kita sibuk merancang trip untuk tahun seterusnya. Good, sebab bila kita plan awal-awal kan dapat la harga flight, hotel atau aktiviti murah. Bukan itu sahaja, kita juga mempunyai masa secukupnya untuk prepare segala keperluan trip.


Jika ada antara anda yang bercadang nak ke Hokkaido pada musim sejuk, this article is definitely for you. Teruskan membaca artikel ini untuk tahu pengalaman saya (@neysaassila) ke salah satu destinasi impian orang ramai khususnya yang suka snow.


Pssst. Memandangkan sekarang ni dah ada direct flight AirAsia X dari Kuala Lumpur ke Hokkaido, senang la kita nak visit this island dah kan? Layari laman web AirAsia untuk periksa harga tiket flight anda sekarang!

So, back to Hokkaido. This is my experience |
Teks: Neysa Assila

 Hari pertama: Rusutsu Resort 

Aku naik overnight flight jam 11.50 dari Kuala Lumpur (KLIA) dan sampai di New Chitose Airport. Sampai je airport, aku freshen up and start my journey here!


First place aku nak pergi ialah Rusutsu Resort. Dari airport, aku menaiki bas ke Rusutsu (Harga tiket JPY 3,000, perjalanan mengambil sekitar 2 jam).


Sampai je Rusutsu Resort, aku terus check in, freshen up dan tidak lain tidak bukan, keluar main salji. Salji kat Hokkaido ni memang istimewa bagi aku. It's soft and clean berbanding dengan snow di tempat lain yang aku pernah pergi.


Rusutsu Resort tak terlampau crowded masa aku ke sini. Ianya terletak di bawah satu bumbung dengan fasiliti lain seperti monorel, kedai-kedai, kolam air panas, kantin, tempat permainan dan banyak lagi.

There is nothing much untuk hari pertama. Aku cuma jalan-jalan explore the nearby area dan tinjau harga nak main ski, snowmobile dan macam-macam lagi.


To those yang belum tahu, snowmobile merupakan salah satu sukan salji di mana penunggang akan membawa moto salji manakala snowtubing pula penumpang akan duduk dalam pelampung dan motor akan tarik dengan kelajuan agak pantas di atas salji. It is fun to do.

Photography tip:
How to take great shots when you're riding snowmobile? I use my favourite action cam and also a helmet mount to safely capture stunning shots.

Harga untuk snowrafting lebih kurang JPY 2,000 manakala untuk snowmobile pula ada macam-macam pakej yang disediakan.

Untuk restoran pula anda boleh cuba makanan di Sekka Tei, Rusutsu Resort. Ia menyediakan pelbagai hidangan halal termasuk la daging ayam, lembu dan banyak lagi.


Pastikan anda book awal-awal kalau nak makan kat sini sebab diorang biasanya prepare halal meal based on request/early reservation.



 Hari kedua: Aktiviti ski

Inilah masa yang ditunggu-tunggu, main snow dan ski!


Disebabkan aku tak pernah lagi main ski sebelum ni, aku sewa pakaian dan peralatan ski di Rusutsu Resort. Terdapat banyak pakej disediakan untuk penyewa dari pakej standard hinggalah premium. Penyewa boleh memilih saiz dan warna pakaian mengikut citarasa masing-masing.


Selain peratalan ski, pengunjung juga boleh sewa peralatan untuk sukan lain seperti snowboarding dan a few others. Anda boleh rujuk maklumat tengok ski mountain di sekitar Rusutsu Resort di sini.

Travel tip:
Travelling in Hokkaido in winter means you need to expect super freezing days here. I decided to wear Howon men's winter fleece jacket and also Lethmik winter beanie to keep myself warm throughout the trip.

Sebagai first timer, aktiviti ski ni boleh tahan susah ya. Ada juga la beberapa kali aku jatuh sampai satu tahap aku memang dah tak kisah orang sekeliling tengok aku jatuh. HAHAHA. Kalau anda pun first timer, jangan risau sebab ada guide di sekitar kawasan ski yang akan bantu anda.


Pemain ski yang tak pernah ada pengalaman kebiasaannya disarankan untuk hire guide untuk ajar basic selama sekitar 1 atau 2 hari sebelum anda main ski independently. Pakej-pakej lain termasuklah private lesson, kids group, snowboard dan mountain guiding. Boleh tengok harga di sini

Lepas selesai main ski, aku makan tengahari di kantin yang beroperasi di Rusutsu Resort.


Ada pelbagai hidangan yang anda boleh pilih. For me, harga dia pun quite affordable. Done with my lunch. Aku rest sekejap before check out dan proceed ke aktiviti seterusnya. 


Rusutsu Resort - Sapporo

Ada macam-macam tarikan di Rusutsu Resort. Bukan ski sahaja. Anda boleh juga tengok reindeer yang sangat la comel.


Aku teruskan aktiviti ke Sapporo. Dari Rusutsu, anda boleh naik bas secara percuma untuke ke Sapporo jika anda merupakan in-house guest. Perjalanan mengambil masa sekitar 1 jam.

Jika anda dah puas makan makanan laut dan rasa nak makan daging di Sapporo, boleh cuba hidangan di Gengkhis Khan. Ia dikenali sebagai Mongolia Barbeque dimana hidangan ini terdiri daripada  daging kambing dan pelbagai jenis sayur-sayuran. Jangan risau, ianya halal dan selamat untuk dimakan oleh para pengunjung Muslim. Baca sini untuk tahu lebih lanjut mengenai Gengkhis Khan.


Untuk penginapan di Sapporo pula aku pilih untuk menginap di Resol Trinity Sapporo. Ia bukan sahaja menawarkan harga yang agak affordable tapi juga lokasi yang agak strategik terletak 10 minit jalan kaki ke Tonukukoji serta berdekatan dengan Munich Christmas Market, Sapporo Clock Tower, festival lampu dan bermacam lagi. 

Okay, time to rest now. Tak sabar nak explore more on the next day! 



 Hari ketiga: Sapporo dan Otaru 

Untuk hari ketiga, aku berpeluang untuk ke beberapa tempat iaitu Sapporo dan Otaru. Since ramai yang dah pergi Sapporo, aku tak akan cerita panjang pasal Sapporo.



Few attractions yang aku sempat visit ialah Former Hokkaido Government House, Odori Park dan Sapporo Clock Tower. Semua anda boleh visit within walking distance. If anda minat ambil gambar, sekitar city centre Sapporo ni agak cantik dan sesuai untuk street photography.


Done with Sapporo. Now, let us move to Otaru. Perjalanan mengambil masa sekitar setengah jam menaiki train. I guess ramai yang belum tahu lagi pasal Otaru.


Tempat pertama aku visit di Otaru ialah Otaru Aquarium iaitu salah satu tarikan di Otaru yang menerima sekitar 350, 000 pengunjung setiap tahun. Tarikan utama tempat ni ialah peluang untuk melihat sekitar 500 jenis ikan air sejuk dan suam. Pada musim sejuk pula para pengunjung boleh saksikan sekumpulan penguin berjalan di atas permukaan salji.


Haiwan lain yang ada di sini termasuklah dolphin, seal, pelican dan banyak lagi. I'm glad to see the animals dijaga dengan baik. 

Selepas visit aquarium, aku ke Otaru canal untuk menaiki bot sekitar sungai-sungai di sini. Sepanjang perjalanan bot boleh nampak deretan bangunan-bangunan lama. So picturesque!


Untuk makanan pula, anda boleh cuba Donburi Chaya Otaru Restaurant. Masuk sahaja restoran ni, terus I was like "Ah, I feel home!". Bukan apa, sebab nampak ramai Malaysian, Indonesian and Singaporean visitors datang ke restoran ni. Ia menghidangkan pelbagai jenis makanan halal dengah harga berpatutan. Plus point, ada surau untuk solat. Nice!




Sekian saja perkongsian pengalaman aku di Hokkaido. Ada banyak lagi tarikan menarik yang ada di sini. So, apa tunggu lagi? Book la tiket cepat for your next winter trip!

Autore: Tenente Kyel Rezon


Sheldon
Ponte 16 - Stiva
20/10/2398 - Ore 17.32


"Dove siamo?" era la domanda più gettonata in quei terribili frangenti
"Che facciamo?" la seguiva a ruota per lo stato d'animo che regnava a bordo
"Dov'è il Capitano?" si chiedevano da più parti
"Comandante Faith che facciamo?"
"Dobbiamo fidarci?"
Adrienne era come spaurita.
La consapevolezza che il Capitano Amundsen si era sacrificato per salvarle la vita l'aveva destabilizzata.
La ferita alla fronte non l'aiutava, la sentiva continuamente pulsare e fremere.
La testa le stava ruotando e le immagini le apparivano sfocate.
L'enormità emozionale, proveniente da praticamente tutto l'equipaggio, la stava facendo vacillare.
Non solo, ma percepiva materialmente su di sé gli occhi di tutti.
Aveva la responsabilità di quegli uomini e quelle donne e non era pronta a farlo.
Non ancora.
Aveva però il grado più alto: era obbligata a farlo, ma come?
Era appena stata promossa Tenente Comandante, sperava in un lungo e proficuo affiancamento con un Capitano di esperienza come Amundsen e, invece, si trovava lì: del tutto impreparata a guidare una nave sconosciuta, per lo più senziente, in un Quadrante pressoché inesplorato.
Alla mente le venivano i racconti sull'Ammiraglia Janeway e la Voyager, ma lei non aveva la tempra di quella donna e la nave su cui si trovavano non era una Classe Intrepid.
Col passare dei secondi prima e dei minuti poi, le domande si moltiplicavano.
Le richieste aumentavano di intensità verbale e la cacofonia di voci sovrapposte era come una bomba ad orologeria pronta ad esplodere.
Adrienne percepì distintamente il contatto mentale di Blake, pronto a darle una mano, ma non era la mossa giusta, il momento non era opportuno per l'intervento dell'amico e lei reagì negativamente.
Alec non insistette: fra i Betazoidi vi erano ordini e priorità non di costume o folklore, ma di profondo rispetto delle altrui capacità mentali.
Ciò nonostante, anche lui non poteva esimersi dal fissarla, così come facevano tutti quanti.
O quasi.
Il brusio divenne ronzio.
Il ronzio divenne baccano.
Il baccano divenne silenzio.
Assoluto.
Quasi inquietante.
Fu allora che Adrienne la sentì: una voce familiare, in un contesto, però, negativo.
"Tenente Cruz, le ripeto la domanda. E' d'accordo con me che, allo stato attuale, il Comandante Faith non è in grado di espletare il ruolo di Facente Funzioni di Capitano? Conviene con me che, fino a quando non si sarà pienamente ripresa, non può assumere l'eredità di guidarci lasciatagli dal rimpianto Amundsen"
La voce di Kyel era decisa e determinata, l'impulso del mezzo Risiano mezzo Betazoide aveva preso il sopravvento
"I - io n- on saprei.." balbettò Jeanette "D- dovrei esaminare la ferita del Comandante e.. sì.. insomma.. n- non credo di essere la persona più adatta a.."
"Tenente Hewson? Lei è esperto in espressioni facciali e comportamenti.. le sembra che il Comandante Faith sia completamente in grado di intendere e volere in questo momento?"
"Sicuramente ha subito uno shock, la scomparsa del Capitano è stato un duro colpo per tutti noi, ognuno può rielaborare tale accadimento, così come la distruzione della USS Rutherford, con tempistiche differenti.."
"Non è quello che le ho chiesto, Tenente.. come Facente Funzioni di Primo Ufficiale le sto ordinando di fornirmi una risposta chiara ed univoca: le sembra il Comandante Faith perfettamente in grado di adempiere i propri doveri di Ufficiale in Comando di questa unità?"
"Non posso fornirle un responso dal solo impatto visivo, Signore.. sicuramente non potrà avere la sua abituale lucidità, ma nessuno di noi la ha.."
"Lo prendo come un no. Tenente Cruz, questa momentanea difficoltà del Comandante Faith, evidenziata, ma non esauriente, da parte del Signor Hewson, può essere dovuta alla ferita che ha sulla testa?"
"Beh.. sì.. è teoricamente possibile, ma, come le dicevo, dovrei analizzarla per esserne certa"
Di fronte all'assoluto immobilismo e mutismo di Adrienne, Alec tentò di chiamarla senza successo.
"Molto bene, come evidenziato, suo malgrado, anche dal nostro timoniere, sollevo seduta stante il Comandante Faith dalle sue funzioni. Viene destituita dal grado e dal ruolo sino ad avvenuta guarigione. Assumo formalmente il comando della nave denominata Sheldon"
"Signore non mi pare il caso, forse dovremmo solo aspettare che si riprenda"
"Temo di non poterlo permettere Tenente Jenkins. In conformità con l'ordine generale 104, sezione A, dichiaro inabile il Facente Funzione di Capitano Faith e la sollevo momentaneamente dai suoi incarichi"


Sheldon

20/10/2398 - Ore 17.38


"Dottoressa Cruz.. Jeanette raduna il tuo staff e mettetevi all'opera. Sono certo che Sheldon non avrà problemi a fornirvi il materiale di cui avete bisogno per curare i feriti.."
"Sì Signore.. ehm sì Capitano.. agli ordini.. Sheldon ci teletrasporti in.. ehm.. esiste un'infermeria a bordo?"
=^=Ponte 11.. subito=^=
Una decina di fasci luminosi azzurrini fecero la propria comparsa, permasero per una ventina di secondi di sfarfallio, prima di scomparire.
"Ci sono problemi?" domandò Kyel notando il malfunzionamento dei teletrasporti
=^=Non proprio. Mi sento più meno come un arcotangente in prossimità di un asintoto=^=
Kyel si girò verso l'ufficiale scientifico che gli suggerì sottovoce qualcosa
"Vuoi dire che è bloccato?"
=^=Quale parte di arcotangente in prossimità di un asintoto non avete capito? In ogni caso, ho risolto..=^=
Due secondi dopo, medici e feriti, fra cui Adrienne, sparirono dalla stiva


Sheldon

"Signor Rush, si coordini col nostro ospite e faccia in modo di localizzare spazi operativi per ogni sezione. Voglio, al più presto, una sua valutazione in merito, una planimetria dei ponti ed una dislocazione degli stessi."
=^=Posso fornirvela io, seduta stante=^=
"Grazie Sheldon, ma preferisco il nostro Capo Operazioni. Il suo apporto sarà fondamentale. Nicholas dovrà valutare ciò che è stato salvato della nostra tecnologia e dei nostri abituali strumenti, se siano ancora funzionali o meno, com'è la struttura della nave e come possiamo interagire con essa.. e voglio che predisponga, su ogni pad salvato, una mappa olografica per ogni evenienza"
=^=Posso intuire che non abbiate un'intelligenza abbastanza sviluppata da comprendere appieno il significato della mia frase precedente, ma la ripeto. Ogni vostra necessità la posso sbrigare io stesso, seduta stante=^=
"E di questo, ne sono perfettamente consapevole e riconoscente. Ci è stata salvata la vita, ma i miei uomini hanno bisogno di mettersi a lavoro per testare i nervi, affrontare la nuova realtà, mettendo in mostra le abilità di ciascuno. Dobbiamo comprendere tutti se siamo pronti e se potremo un giorno tornare a casa"
=^=Capisco=^=
Paul Hewson, il Consigliere di Bordo, pur essendo ancora perplesso circa l'avventatezza di Rezon nell'assumere il Comando, di cui poteva condividerne l'esigenza che ne stava alla base ma non le modalità, decise di assecondare il nuovo Facente Funzioni di Capitano
"Abbiamo bisogno di credere che possiamo riprendere in mano le nostre vite, dopo essere stati così vicini a perderle.. è solo grazie a te, Sheldon, che siamo ancora tutti vivi.. perché lo hai fatto?"
=^=La elementarità logica che vi contraddistingue è abbastanza stucchevole.. e le vostre domande sono sciocche=^=
"Beh.. non proprio.. è vero, sicuramente volevi essere generoso.. avevi abbandonato un equipaggio ritenuto immeritevole e.."
=^=Mi risparmi il trattato da psicologo dilettante.. io non volevo essere munifico.. come tutti sapete alla base del rito del dono c'è la reciprocità. Ciò che vi ho dato non è frutto di benevolenza, ma è un'obbligazione. Ora dovrete riuscire a produrre in mio favore qualcosa di equivalente che rappresenti lo stesso valore insito nel mio gesto=^=
Prima che il Consigliere di Bordo della ormai distrutta USS Rutherford potesse ribattere, intervenne nuovamente Rezon
"Motivo in più per permetterci di studiare la nave, di comprendere le nostre possibilità e cercare di ripagare la nostra obbligazione nei tuoi confronti.. signor Rush, si faccia accompagnare da chi vuole del suo staff ed esegua i miei ordini"


Sheldon
Ponte 16 - Stiva
20/10/2398 - Ore 17.58


"Signor Kelley, voglio che lei e tutta la sua sezione operiate di concerto per comprendere la struttura ingegneristica della nave. Dobbiamo capire come conciliare le nostre conoscenze tecnologiche con quelle di Sheldon e come standardizzare le richieste al computer di bordo in base alle procedure abituali in vigore sulla Flotta Stellare"
=^=Cioè debbo semplificare la mia meccanica di bordo=^=
"Non necessariamente, sono ingegnere capo, figlio di un grande luminare in ingegneria.. sono sicuro che potremo cooperare al meglio e potrei sicuramente anche migliorare alcuni aspetti della tua parte tecnica"
=^=Hai le stesse probabilità che ha un telescopio di scoprire che al centro di ogni buco nero c'è un omino con una torcia intento a cercare il contatore=^=
"Sheldon, nel mio ufficio sulla USS Rutherford c'era un diploma che affermava che ho ottenuto un master in ingegneria col massimo dei voti"
=^=Se è per questo, fra le cose salvate, c'è anche un messaggio registrato di tua madre che dice che ti vuole bene, ma nessuno dei due elementi è un motivo pregnante per preferire il titanio ai nanotubi di carbonio. Oppure di preferire la struttura di una nave da voi classificata come Miranda ed osare paragonarla al sottoscritto=^=
"L'ingegneria è solamente il fratellino ritardato della fisica" intervenne anche Vosek, l'ufficiale scientifico Vulcaniano.
"Ci si mette pure lei ora? Non si tratta di capacità intellettive, ma di risolvere problemi, per questo sono un ingegnere. È quello che mi piace, quello per cui ho studiato. È ciò che sono."
"Ho solo esplicitato un parere comune a circa il 78,59% degli scienziati"
"Non mi pare proprio.. ci sono fior fiore di studi a riguardo che.."
"Basta così!" comandò Rezon "Signor Kelley, esegua gli ordini! Signor Vosek, sia così gentile di provvedere, assieme al Tenente Blake, ad identificare la nostra posizione in base alle conoscenze astrometriche che abbiamo del Quadrante Delta"


Sheldon
Ponte 6 - Sala Controllo del Nucleo principale del Computer
20/10/2398 - Ore 19.16


La chiamata di allarme era terminata da una manciata di minuti, quando Kyel Rezon tallonato da Jekins come Responsabile della Sicurezza, fece la sua comparsa in quel strabiliante amplesso di luci, tastiere e bottoni illuminati che era parte integrante del nucleo del computer di bordo.
Nicholas Rush vibrava sollevato a mezz'aria, illuminato da un cono di luce biancastra, quasi diafano dalla fatica dovuta alla scarsa respirazione.
"Cosa succede qua?" domandò Kyel con tono deciso, tentando di nascondere la propria preoccupazione
Una riproduzione olografica di Sheldon comparve da dietro un enorme pila di processori
=^=Un altro scherzo del genere e vi deposito nel primo pianeta abitabile che incontreremo nel nostro cammino=^=
L'espressione era arcigna, la voce, seppur priva di inflessioni, sembrava furente.
"Ripeto la domanda Signor Rush, cosa succede qua?"
=^=Il suo Capo Operazioni non può rispondere: rimarrà in atmosfera con ossigenazione prossima al minimo vitale per altri minuti, così potrà imparare che..=^=
"Che cosa? Lo faccia scendere da lì, immediatamente"
=^=Uhm.. sto pensando ad una similitudine banale, in grado di essere compresa anche da voi individui fisici dotati di intelligenza limitata=^=
Kyel fece finta di non afferrare la situazione, limitandosi a mettersi fra Jekins, pronto a scattare in avanti, e la riproduzione di Sheldon.
"Quindi?"
=^=Uhm.. sarebbe opportuno che lei spiegasse al vostro Capo Operazioni che non può entrare in un supercomputer e provare ad aprire compartimenti di auto protezione del nucleo intellettivo, senza che i meccanismi di difesa lo spifferino all'AI sotto attacco=^=
"D'accordo, ma lo metta giù! Noi dobbiamo conoscere la nave e, per farlo, per forza di cose dobbiamo accedere alle tue interfacce ed apprendere"
=^=O quello di sicuro.. dovete imparare un sacco di cose=^=
"Se vuoi, puoi aiutarci tu, rispettando le nostre acclarate inferiori capacità intellettive.."
=^=Che proponi?=^=
"Potresti pur sempre seguire ogni capo sezione. Non avresti problemi a ricreare piccoli te olografici per darci consigli e suggerimenti. Tu conosci te stesso, noi siamo solo tuoi ospiti"
=^=Abbiamo un genio, a quanto pare. Era evidente che nessuno di voi potesse essere lasciato solo. Già lo stavo facendo, ma la teoria dei mini me, potrebbe essere divertente=^=
Non finì quasi di parlare che la riproduzione altezza uomo di Sheldon si dissolse.. a fianco di Kyel apparve una specie di genio della lampada color cobalto dal turbante bianco e dalla parlata scoppiettante.
=^=Oh eccolo il genio col bollino sulla testa=^=
"Ce l'hai con me?" domandò Kyel stupito da tanta differenza fra quella piccola riproduzione tendente al cartone animato rispetto al gelido ed indisponente Sheldon
=^=E chi sennò? Certo che sei proprio sciocco. Ehi, sveglia coso!=^=
"Scusa un momento. No, dico ce l'hai con me?"
=^=Pronto c'è nessuno in grado di fare una sinapsi dentro la tua testolina? O lo fai apposta? Vuoi un riassuntivo o vuoi fare la vittima? Oh povero.. la nebulosa gli ha distrutto la nave?! Oh chi è che mi è venuto a salvare?! Chi mi hai portato qui?! Non mi parevi così grande grosso e stupido! Ci hai messo un attimo a destituire la fanciulla.. E adesso? Mi vorresti analizzare per poi piantare in asso?!? Ma io non credo proprio! Te lo puoi scordare! Quindi seduto!!! In caso di emergenza le uscite sono qui, qui, qui, qui, qui, qui, qui, qui, qui, dovunque! Ah.. ma non si apriranno mai senza il mio consenso.. quindi.. i signori passeggeri sono pregati di allacciare le cinture di sicurezza. Si paaaaaaaaaaaarteeeeeeeee!!!=^=
La Sheldon se ne andò a curvatura, senza attivare gli smorzatori inerziali.
Si fermò meno di sessanta secondi dopo, con tutti a gambe all'aria.
=^=Ops.. non sono più abituato ad avere ospiti viventi a bordo=^=
"Capitano Rezon, mi faccia scendere" sibilò un cianotico Rush
=^=Oh.. ah già che c'avevo ancora il pappagallo impiccione appeso=^=
Un tonfo sordo accompagnò la caduta di Rush.
Mentre Jekins si affrettava a prestar soccorso al collega, due riproduzioni di Sheldon fecero la loro comparsa a fianco dei due ufficiali. Erano del tutto identiche a quello originario, come se dovessero attendere di conoscere il proprio assistito prima di trasformarsi.


Sheldon
Ponte 2 - Alloggio del Capitano
20/10/2398 - Ore 22.42


=^=Perché piangi?=^= domandò Sheldon ad Adrienne
Nessuna risposta.
=^=Non ce n'è alcuna ragione=^=
Neanche una reazione da parte della Faith
=^=Vi ho salvati, dovreste essere felici. O per lo meno suppongo lo dobbiate essere, ma potrei sovrastimare la vostra intelligenza. Che io sappia, si piange quando si è tristi, io, per esempio, dovrei piangere sempre perché so quanto voi altri siate stupidi e ciò mi rende triste.. so che è impossibile che vi siano altre intelligenze capaci come la mia, ma nessuno si è mai rivelato degno della mia attenzione=^=
"Perché ci hai salvati dunque?"
=^=Mah.. veramente mi annoiavo.. e potrei pur sempre pentirmene=^=


Sheldon
Ponte 2 - Alloggio del Capitano
21/10/2398 - Ore 01.31


"TU!" la furia di Adrienne, a lungo repressa, scoppiò come un fiume impetuoso che frantumava gli argini
"Che tu sia dannato Kyel Rezon! Non ti era sufficiente avermi rovinato la vita, non ti soddisfaceva avermi mollato col cuore a pezzi senza una spiegazione. Non ti accontentava avermi subito riportata a letto dopo anni in cui ti ho odiato. Non ti bastava tormentarmi con le tue donnine da quattro soldi. NO! Sei un bastardo! Mi hai addirittura destituita dal Comando! Dal mio PRIMO Comando! Tu e quella sciocca della Cruz che si è fatta imbambolare dal tuo bel faccino! Ma ora ti do tanti di quei pugni sul naso che tutte le femmine che respirano smetteranno di venirti dietro!"
Kyel si gettò al riparo non appena vide arrivare verso di lui una serie di oggetti, alcuni riconoscibili, altri del tutto sconosciuti, di varie forme e dimensioni.
Un lancio rabbioso, disorganizzato, ma continuo: qualunque cosa fosse a tiro di Adrienne, lei gliela stava lanciando contro.
Sebbene, appena varcata la soglia del suo alloggio, che era, stranamente, comunicante con quello di Adrienne, Kyel fosse eccezionalmente divertito dal fatto che la Betazoide fosse così tanto uscita dai gangheri da ammettere ad alta voce cose che, di solito, avrebbe negato anche sotto tortura, ora il mezzo Risiano stava iniziando a preoccuparsi.
Gli oggetti sotto mano della Faith non stavano diminuendo, come si aspettava, ma stavano addirittura aumentando.
Approfittando di uno dei rari momenti di pausa della sassaiola di colpi, Kyel si accorse, con una punta di spavento, come al fianco della Faith fosse comparsa una delle riproduzioni in miniatura di Sheldon e che questa continuasse a fornire alla donna munizioni di vario genere.
Quella copia olografica aveva un non so che di familiare, ma Kyel non era riuscito a metterla a fuoco, dovendo evitare, per un soffio, una specie di bussola portatile che gli aveva pericolosamente sfiorato la guancia destra.
Non solo, quell'accanimento stava lentamente, ma inesorabilmente, deteriorando la poltrona di design dietro la quale si era rifugiato: distrutta quella, non avrebbe avuto altri ripari.
Il tavolo era saldamente ancorato al pavimento ed il resto della mobilia armoniosamente disposto alle pareti.
Kyel sapeva che doveva prenderla per sfinimento, ma sarebbe durata più la poltrona o la resistenza fisica di Adrienne?


Sheldon
Ponte 2 - Alloggio Capitano
21/10/2398 - Ore 01.40


L'offensiva fisica e l'invettiva verbale da parte di Adrienne non sembravano dar cenno di diminuire.
La riproduzione olografica di Sheldon al fianco della Betazoide sembrava divertita nel fornire alla donna materiali di lancio sempre diversi e confabulava bisbigliando con la stessa come sogghignando
"La vuoi finire e farmi parlare?" domandò Kyel
Nessuna risposta, tranne un crack improvviso della poltrona di design.
"Sheldon, ho bisogno di aiuto"
Silenzio assoluto
"La vuoi smettere di fornirle materiale da gettare?"
Il mini ologramma formato Genio che Sheldon aveva deciso di utilizzare per Kyel fece la sua comparsa tranquillamente appoggiato allo stipite della porta che divideva i due alloggi.
=^=Ascolta, cocco, le chiacchiere stanno a zero! Se vuoi ancora rimorchiare la ragazza, l'unica cosa che ti resta da fare è scoprire le tue carte!=^=
"Non credo serva, finché la armi di tutto punto"
"Oh non credere.. Io ti rivolto la faccia anche senza niente.. solo con un pugno! Vieni fuori da lì!" urlò Adrienne con rabbia
"Ho un'alternativa? Hai quasi distrutto tutto qua!"
"C'è sempre un'alternativa, sebbene il nostro sia un universo deterministico, ogni individuo ha il pieno controllo delle sue scelte. Vieni fuori da lì, siedi e prova a spiegarmi se hai il coraggio!"
"Ok, ma calmati.. smetti di lanciarmi contro roba e leggiti il pad che ti ho mandato"
"Quale? Di che parli?"
"Quello che ti ho fatto teletrasportare un'ora fa sul tavolo, contenente il tuo reintegro in servizio attivo, lo stato delle varie sezioni ed alcune preliminari valutazioni sul personale"
"Sheldon, che ci fa quel pad nel cestino?" domandò sorpresa Adrienne dopo aver scrutato il suo alloggio da cima a fondo, sospendendo l'attacco verso Kyel
=^=Beh, c'è la possibilità che il cestino si sia formato spontaneamente attorno al vostro banale strumento di registrazione dati, ma, secondo il principio del rasoio di Occam, qualcuno l'ha buttato=^=
"Perché?"
=^=Per non perdermi la scenata, ovvio!=^=


Sheldon
Ponte 1 - Plancia
21/10/2398 - Ore 08.00


"Ma allora, come va fra voi? Mi pareva di aver capito che vi eravate chiariti, ma ancora non vi parlate?" domandò bisbigliando Blake a Rezon notando il comportamento del tutto asettico di intimità fra Primo Ufficiale e Capitano della Sheldon
"Non solo ancora non mi parla, ma fa questa cosa di voi Betazoidi di fissarmi intensamente.. sembra sempre che stia cercando di far esplodere il mio cervello.. e dire che l'ho aiutata ieri".
"Sarà, ma l'hai un pelo umiliata davanti a tutti!"
"Se avesse fallito, non se lo sarebbe mai perdonato, la dovresti conoscere.. ho fatto quello che andava fatto, non ho minato la sua autorità.. l'ho rafforzata, ha potuto passare la nottata a riflettere su come agire.. il resto, la contingenza, l'urgenza l'ho gestita io.. l'ho fatto per lei, prima lo capirà, meglio sarà"
"Mah.. ammesso che sia così, allora che cos'ha? Non mi pare sia particolarmente contenta di aver riottenuto il Comando"
"Ecco, è difficile da spiegare... a volte quando fa così significa che si trova in una dimensione alternativa che occupa lo stesso spazio fisico della nostra, ma dalla quale non riesce a percepirci"
"Signor Blake comunichi al Primo Ufficiale di non sopravvalutarsi, lo sto solo ignorando" esclamò Adrienne strappando un sorriso sia ad Alec che a Kyel.

The Hotwire #41: Proud Boys assaults—Hurricane Michael autonomous relief—squats and rent strikes   

Cache   

Our features for this Hotwire are interviews about the Proud Boys attacks in New York City and Portland, Oregon, and we have an interview about autonomous relief after Hurricane Michael, which is also seeing organizing from neo-confederate fascists. We have a whirlwind of headlines from around the world, with breast-baring feminists burning barricades in Argentina, squatters from Ireland to Germany, and indigenous resistance in Canada. Connor Stevens of the Cleveland 4 is getting out soon, Jalil Muntaqim could use letters of support for his parole hearing, and we have calls to action from the L’eau Est La Vie anti-pipeline camp, plus much more! Send us news, events, or ideas on how our show can better serve anarchist activity in your town by emailing us at podcast@crimethinc.com. {October 17, 2018}

  • Autonomous Mutual Aid in the wake of Hurricanes Florence and Michael:
  • You can support the East Hamilton rent strike by calling the building’s administrative office at 289–426–3001 and telling them to stop repressing tenant organizing. Alternatively, consider contributing to their GoFundMe to help pay for the filing fees ($190 per tenant) required in Ontario of the strikers when they are issued eviction notices, a common retaliation to rent strikes.

    If you prefer to donate by cheque, please send it to the following address:
    The Hamilton Tenants Solidarity Network
    c/o Hamilton Community Legal Clinic
    Suite #203, 100 Main St. E, Hamilton, Ontario

  • You can support the Seattle GDC’s campaign to get Proud Boy Nicholas Boling fired by calling Boeing’s commercial airplanes division at 206–655–1131 or the plant in Auburn where he works as a fabricator at (253) 931–2121.

    Sample script: “I am calling about Boeing employing Nick Boling, who is a member of the violent hate group the Proud Boys, and has misrepresented himself as being a Boeing test pilot when he assaulted a bartender in Bellingham Washington. Boeing should do the right thing and hold him accountable for his reprehensible behavior.”

  • Abraham Hernandez, a Black Mesa supporter, was arrested in Utah and is currently being held captive at an immigration detention center. Here’s a link to a fundraiser to guarantee Abraham’s safety and intentional protection, to contribute to and/or share!
  • Visit rupression.com for ways to support the eight antifascists currently being held captive and tortured by the Russian state. Ways to support them include: sharing on social media, online and physical letter writing, and monetary donations (including several cryptocurrencies).
  • Connor Stevens, one of the Cleveland 4, is being released as soon as November, and there’s a fundraiser to help get him basic necessities when he is released! Here’s also a Paypal to support the rest of the Cleveland 4.
  • Atlanta Antifascists have announced a new campaign against local white nationalist organizer Casey Jordan Cooper. Casey is attending John Marshall Law School and they’re asking people to call the law school at (678) 916–2600 and express your concern about the white power leader attending their school. Here is a sample script provided in an earlier call to action:

    SHORT SCRIPT: “Why aren’t you doing anything about Casey Cooper’s white supremacist organizing at your school?”

    LONGER SCRIPT: “Hello, I am contacting you about second-year student Casey Jordan Cooper. AJMLS has known for almost a year that Cooper is responsible for making racist death threats. All the evidence is at caseycooperinfo.wordpress.com. You are also aware that Cooper coordinated white power propaganda campaigns on Metro Atlanta campuses. I am deeply concerned by your school’s inaction. Why does AJMLS still view Cooper as fit to study and practice law?

    “I am reminding you that the issue is not just Cooper’s bigoted speech, but Cooper clearly threatening to lynch somebody. Doesn’t helping Cooper on his way to a become a lawyer — where he will have greatly increased power over people’s lives — make further harm likely? How is AJMLS working to repair the damage it has already done, to the broader community and to its own student body? The time has come for AJMLS to do better. Thanks for listening today.”

    EXTRA CREDIT: CONTACT BAR ADMISSIONS

    We also invite you to contact the Office of Bar Admissions for Georgia, supplying them with information on Casey Jordan Cooper’s conduct. Explain that Cooper is currently in law school but that his white power harassment and death threats reveal that he cannot be trustworthy and reliable as lawyer in the future. This information should be kept on file and Cooper should be denied admission to the bar.

  • There is a call out from L’eau Est La Vie camp to protest banks who are invested in the Bayou Bridge pipeline.

  • We have a Twitter! Follow @HotwireWeekly and send us news that we should include in the show.
  • CORRECTIONS & CLARIFICATIONS:
    • In Hotwire #40 Riot Dogg said that Laquan was murdered in 2015. He was shot on October 20, 2014. Also, a second degree murder charge in Illinois carries 4 to 20 years, with no mandatory time served. Each account of aggravated assault with a firearm carries a minimum of 6 years, with a max of 30. 85% of time must be served in the state of Illinois. That means if Officer Van Dyke gets the minimum 6 years for all 16 counts it’s a total of 96 years. 85 percent of that is 81.6 so that should be the minimum.

Water protectors have been hard at work opposing the Mountain Valley Pipeline, and Panama City landlords have begun evicting devastated residents from their homes. You’ll hear from Carbondale anarchists mobilizing against Trump and right-wing reaction, and a hotline created by New Orleans antifascists to document Proud Boy activity—plus much more!
