News Headlines (446) 13 January - 15 January 2014




ONLINE TODAY

13 January 2014 : Better get your chores done now, because in a couple of days, a certain someone will make it their business to completely monopolize all of your attention. If it happens to be your current partner, you can expect that the bond between you two will deepen and intensify. If it's someone new, don't be surprised if you feel as if you've known each other forever. Brevity is the soul of wit -- so be as witty as you can be today! Keep all your communications short and to the point and you are sure to blow past any competition you may have.

Right around dinnertime, the urge to connect with someone on a very deep level will cross your mind -- and your heart. You already have someone in mind, but the universe may have other plans for you. Stay open to new possibilities and don't turn down any offers to be introduced to someone new. You never know. This time might just be different.

14 January 2014 : Right around dinnertime, the urge to connect with someone on a very deep level will cross your mind -- and your heart. You already have someone in mind, but the universe may have other plans for you. Stay open to new possibilities and don't turn down any offers to be introduced to someone new. You never know. This time might just be different. You need to move closer to what you think of as home. That could just mean skipping work or school, or it could involve a serious, long-term lifestyle change. Whatever it is, take it seriously! Be extra careful not to let yourself become tired or run down. You'll need all the physical and emotional strength you can muster to get through today -- and, more importantly, tonight. Of course, if anyone has mastered the concept of the 20 minute power nap, followed by a cool shower and a strong cappuccino, it's you. Go ahead. Show us how it's done and make this day work for you.

Iran nuclear deal to take effect on January 20 - By Parisa Hafezi and Justyna Pawlak
ANKARA/BRUSSELS - A deal for Iran to freeze parts of its nuclear program in return for sanctions relief will take effect on January 20, giving world powers and Tehran six months to agree a complete end to a standoff that has raised the risk of a wider Middle East war.

OPINION : French minds turn to scandal - By John Lloyd
The web and gossip complex have redefined political coverage in France. French leaders are forced to respond to the news media mid-scandal, unable to count on a hands-off press.
* Gumbel: France says 'Non' to the digital age
Based on the above case, and see how bad becomes Valerie, (being just a partner of Hollande, and not the wife of Hollande, so she is not flexible enough to be displayed as the First Lady in proportion, and she can not open her mouth freely to yell and asking for symphaty of media and public) I am wondering to myself, "Should I get married?" (Darling, you're too diligent to always be with me. I will name you as My Time's Craftman. La-di-dah!)

Rumoured affair turns messy for France's Hollande
I will never understand what is interesting from Hollande so that now he is reported as closeout items, aahahhaa ...ops! Oh,ohohhoo ... Valerie, Valerie, come on, no need to feel insulted if there is another woman who likes your partner, because, -- ayaah, hehee... at least, but definitely not me -- your partner is still marketable, eehehhee ...  because I -- even if I am given free -- I will reject him, ahahaha ...

And as I typed in my previous post, if what is left in this world is just me, Hollande, and my facebook account which has been inactive since a long time, then I will click "like" on Hollande only through my facebook account, and at any time, every time, I can click "like" again, so "like" has now been changed to "unlike". Ahahahaa ...without a word at all. Cool, is not it? Nice to imagine Hollande will stupefy with his clown face ... ehehehee ....

France's Hollande vows to deal with affair fallout in private

Stop feeling cool, Hollande! Who would actually really care about your personal affairs, hm? If the rumors are true, who you think you are? You want to be the sexiest guy from France? Ahhaaa ... I'm afraid you're in the wrong plot.

Who does not know the old French tradition? Your relationship with Gayet only perpetuates the old French tradition which has seducer presidential and politicians. Jacques Chirac was believed to have many extramarital affair. Francois Mitterand even has a daughter from his affair. Valery Giscard d'Estaing also described as a fan of women, even in his book he alluded to his relationship with Princess Diana. Nevertheless, the French people are known to tolerate their leaders adventure, which often it is proved to have little or no negative effect on their popularity.

We're just measure you. Your popularity has sunk to the lowest record, and it's not just because of how you deal with the immigration problem. You face many problems, including unemployment and housing. And my question now is, "Are you going to finish your term, considering all these problems? I personally doubt you will finish your year." Ops, please do not be too bitchy, Cisca. Do you think it's just a matter of coitus interruptus, hm? ehehehee ...

At the very least, there are three your important agenda in your leadership. First, your gait awaited by the European community in dealing with the European crisis especially with countries in crisis: Greece, Italy and Spain. Second, in the context of France, you are also expected to reduce unemployment, in line with the European economic crisis. Third, your policy toward immigrants become an important issue for you and your cabinet. France is known as a convenient and promising country for immigrants. Recorded 11.5 million immigrants come and live in France.
Of the 65 million residents of France, nearly 19 percent are immigrants.

Ops, ... one more thing, your mission in Mali: it is the most costly, you know!

Why they did not investigate all of his crimes when he was still alive? He's untouchable, right? Israel's untouchable, is not it? And you feel strange with that fact. Do not agree? So what? What can you do with your disagreement? Well, That's your homework for ever! 8 years of coma is a mysterious time. I do not know what happens there, maybe a soul is in exile and imprisoned by a justice untouched by human laws. So, stop dancing and rejoicing in the death of your neighbor, because who will do the same for you when you die?

Well, ... now -- before he dies -- get Olmert! Can you, hm?

MIKHAIL KHODORKOVSKY

MIKHAIL KHODORKOVSKY

RUSSIA BEYOND THE HEADLINES 10 January 2014 : Russians indifferent to Khodorkovsky's release from prison - poll

REUTERS 20 December 2013 : Putin critic Khodorkovsky in Germany after pardon. Within hours of being released from Penal Colony No. 7 at Segezha, deep in the sub-Arctic forest near the Finnish border, Khodorkovsky was in the German capital and issued a statement confirming he had sought a pardon and had not admitted guilt.








This December 20, 2013 picture shows Penal Colony No. 7 where Mikhail Khodorkovsky was held at the village of Segezha, near the Finnish border, 300 km (186 miles) south of the Arctic Circle


What are the conditions in which you are being held in Segezha?
      Russia's penal colony FBU IK-7 is located 150 kilometres from the Finnish border.
      It is a fenced-off area of a few dozen hectares, and closely guarded by armed persons. The area includes prisoners’ dormitories, production buildings and social premises, which are separated from one another by barbed wire. I live in one of these dormitories with nearly 200 prisoners. The dormitory is small, but warm, which is important.
      I work in a production building, producing plastic goods. As a worker. It is familiar to me. I have experience. I did the same kind of work 25 years ago.
      Relations between prisoners vary, as is the case with any community like this, but there are not many serious conflicts.

 
You have been sentenced to prison through 2016. Are there political forces behind your sentences and if so, who are they?
      Everyone in Russia knows that political forces are behind my sentencing, and they do not spark any kind of discussion. These are the siloviki [security service personnel] of the inner circle of [Prime Minister] Vladimir Putin. If we speak about individuals, [current Deputy Prime Minister] Igor Sechin has a leading role.

 
You have said that if Putin returns to the presidency, "the hope of many for reform of the present power structure will disappear, and emigration of Russia;s societally active intelligentsia will sharply accelerate".
      What is the future of Russia, now that the Putin presidency has been decided for all practical purposes, and could continue another 12 years?
      I assume that we are faced with stagnation. For instance, after 2015, when the economic resources of those presently in power have been consumed, any crisis may prove to be its last.

 
Will you be released as long as Putin is in power? What do you plan to do when you are released? Will you go into politics, will you go into business, or will you move out of the country?
      Putin will release me only if he gets more benefit from it than if he kept me in prison. In addition I doubt that he would dare allow me to act in politics.

 
What do you feel about what will happen to Mikhail Prokhorov, who has declared himself a challenger to Putin?
      At present, Mikhail Prokhorov seems to be nothing but a project of Putin, even though this might not be to the liking of Prokhorov himself.
      If he really proves to be a project of Putin, he will have to guarantee Vladimir Putin a position in the political centre. But politics – and judging from the December protests, politics is coming back to Russia – is more complicated than primitive formulae. This is why I will not try to predict Prokhorov’s fate, and everything can change in a completely unexpected direction.

 
Do you regret having stayed in Russia in 2003? Why did you stay?
      I have answered this question many times. Perhaps a short answer is the easiest for your readers to understand: I stayed because I am a Russian.

 
How have the years you have spent in prison changed you? How has Russia changed?
      Prison destroyed the businessman in me. I doubt that I can ever think according to categories of economic advantage. The values are different. I feel that my country is also changing all the time. The civic society is taking shape. I like the views that today’s youth have started to adopt.

 
The European Court of Human rights has not recognised your sentence as having been politically motivated. What do you think of this?
      I understand the motives of the European Court of Human rights. It did not recognise the obvious fact that there is evidence of political motives behind my arrest and imprisonment. Meanwhile, this fact is recognised publicly even by Russian civil servants.
      The court also did not recognise the equally obvious and generally recognised political motivations behind the dissolution and destruction of [the oil company] Yukos when it processed Yukos’s appeal. The destruction of Yukos was the result of the discriminatory implementation of a “retroactive” law.
      Positive cooperation with those who are in power in Russia is in the interests of the European Court of Human Rights, because the court fears that the impact of its decisions on the situation in Russia might remain low.
      For these reasons the court is forced to relent in certain matters to those in power in Russia. Unfortunately, the concessions erode the reputation of the court in the eyes of the most active Russians who support the European trend of development.

 
What do you know about Finland, which is near the place where you are serving our new sentence? Do you have friends or acquaintances in Finland? Who are they?
      I have been in Finland a couple of times. I skied. I bought good winter clothing. I visited your water parks and villages in the north. I tried to copy something from that for us in Siberia.

This is the html version of the file, but this site claims this article is the result of their interview. I doubt it.

14 October 2010 : In place of Military Service, Alternative Civilian Service

Karelia Youth Human Rights Group seeks to bring to the attention of conscripts across Karelia that their right to replace military service by alternative civilian service is guaranteed by the Constitution of the Russian Federation and in particular by Article 59.3: 'A citizen of the Russian Federation shall have the right to replace military service by alternative civilian service in case his convictions or religious belief contradict military service and also in other cases envisaged by federal law". A conscript needs to make an application to a draft board, expressing his desire to enlist into the civilian service. If a draft board will seek to breach the conscript’s right to choose, he can call on our organization for assistance.

According to Maksim Efimov, the Director of Karelia Youth Human Rights Group:

"To serve in an alternative capacity is both honourable and prestigious. If the army tends to brainwash conscripts and can often turn a human being into a monster, Alternative Civilian Service, on the contrary, enables conscripts to realize their humanistic ideals by assisting people as part of their service. Importantly, Alternative Civilian Service leaves conscripts time for reading books and self-development. On the territory of Karelia, young men from St Petersburg have been successfully undertaking civilian service for a number of years already. And, in stark contrast to what they would have encountered as part of the military service, they face no threat to their life or health, no humiliation or attacks on their dignity and no 'cannibalism'."

HRO RIGHTS IN RUSSIA 17 June 2011 : Khodorkovsky's Transfer to Prison: "Red Zone without Horrors". The ex-head of Yukos, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, was sentenced by Moscow’s Khamovniki District Court in the so-called Second Yukos Case to eight years in prison. On appeal, Moscow City Court reduced the sentence by one year. Khodorkovsky’s transfer to a new prison (he served a sentence imposed under the First Yukos Case in a penal colony in the town of Krasnokamensk, Chita region) took place in conditions of extreme secrecy: neither Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s relatives nor his lawyers were able to obtain any official information.

NY TIMES 20 June 2011 : Russian news agencies, citing unidentified police and court officials, reported he would go to Penal Colony No. 7, near the town of Segezha, and join a team of inmates assigned to clean barracks and do other household chores. He may later work at a sewing shop or furniture factory, the reports said. In Chita, Mr. Khodorkovsky worked in a sewing shop.

"Thank you for your perception! I like your romantic side, even if I do not always comment and I'm glad that you're in my circle of friends."
(Courtesies by: Wolfgang A. Gerhardt)

Wolfgang A.Gerhardt : May be you like this Sunday collage

Cisca Zarmansyah : Before today, there never was a person doing this to me. You create a simple matter to look special. This is a special thing for me.

Cisca Zarmansyah : Thank you. I love it. I love you, my friend.

CieL- FreYa Ceastle : Hmm, he's so nice...















"I am me.
In all the world,
there is no one else exactly like me.
Everything that comes out of me
is authentically mine,
because I alone chose it --
I own everything about me:
my body,
my feelings,
my mouth,
my voice,
all my actions,
whether they be to others or myself.
I own my fantasies,
my dreams,
my hopes,
my fears.
I own my triumphs and successes,
all my failures and mistakes.
Because I own all of me,
I can become intimately acquainted with me.
By so doing,
I can love me
and be friendly with all my parts.
I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me,
and other aspects that I do not know
-- but as long as I am friendly
and loving to myself,
I can courageously and hopefully
look for solutions
to the puzzles and ways
to find out more about me.
However I look and sound,
whatever I say and do,
and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time
is authentically me.
If later some parts of how I looked,
sounded,
thought,
and felt
turn out to be unfitting,
I can discard that which is unfitting,
keep the rest,
and invent something new
for that which I discarded.
I can see,
hear,
feel,
think,
say, and do.
I have the tools to survive,
to be close to others,
to be productive,
and to make sense
and order out of the world of people
and things outside of me.
I own me,
and therefore,
I can engineer me.
I am me,
and I am okay."

VIRGINIA SATIR
(American Phychologist and Educator, 1916-1988)
