first_imgHow victory over India gave England confidence vs Australia in World Cup semi-finalWorld Cup 2019: England had triumphed over India at Edgbaston on June 30. 11 days later, England got the better of defending champions Australia at the same venue to reach the World Cup final.advertisement Rajarshi Gupta BirminghamJuly 11, 2019UPDATED: July 11, 2019 23:16 IST England defeated Australia to set up final clash with New Zealand. (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSEdgbaston is where India beat India to get their World Cup campaign back on trackIt was again in Edgbaston that England beat Australia in the semi-finalEngland will now take on New Zealand in search of their maiden World Cup triumphThis has been quite a journey for England in the 2019 Cricket World Cup. The hosts are through to the final where they will take on New Zealand at Lord’s on July 14 after crushing defending champions Australia in a one-sided semi-final.But 20 days ago, England were nervous. They had just failed to chase down 233 against Sri Lanka; at that stage, England had won 4 and lost 2 out of their 6 matches.By then, New Zealand, India and Australia were looking red-hot and that stunning Sri Lankan win over England had opened up the tournament nicely.England had started their World Cup campaign brilliantly. They smashed South Africa by 104 runs on May 30 but lost their second match to Pakistan. Victories over Bangladesh, West Indies and Afghanistan sent English hopes soaring.But there was a twist in the tale. England lost back-to-back games to Sri Lanka and Australia. Jonny Bairstow got into a spat with former captain Michael Vaughan and you could suddenly feel the tension in the English camp.England had their task cut out now. Next up, they had to face India who were unbeaten at that stage. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah were on fire and the Indians were dangerous even without Shikhar Dhawan.On June 30, England’s campaign got back on track. Jason Roy came back from injury and reunited with Jonny Bairstow and the two dominated India’s star-studded bowling line-up.Jonny Bairstow smashed a hundred and England posted 337 which India failed to chase down thanks to MS Dhoni’s baffling go-slow approach.advertisementAnother convincing victory over New Zealand sealed a semi-final berth for England. But their opponents were their oldest nemesis.England had lost to Australia at Lord’s on June 25 and here they were up against the defending champions in the semi-final of the World Cup. Australia had never lost a World Cup semi-final. This was England’s first World Cup semi-final in 27 years.But England brushed aside a strong Australian team.In the 2019 World Cup, Australia had lost only to India and South Africa – the last defeat sent them to Birmingham to play England. And England were ready. They were ready because it was here at this very venue that they had vanquished another powerhouse.”To be honest, having beaten India at this ground, we’d have come here with similar confidence, taken the momentum from the group stages,” England captain Eoin Morgan said at the post-match presentation ceremony.What a turnaround this has been for England. Morgan had replaced Alastair Cook before the 2015 World Cup. 4 years ago, England were knocked out of the group stages but this time, Morgan and England were ready to make amends.Also Read | World Cup 2019: England crush defending champions Australia, set up final vs New ZealandAlso Read | Whoever beats India will win World Cup.

Iraq UN human rights chief concerned over plight of civilians in Falluja

The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights today voiced deep concern about the situation of civilians caught up in the ongoing fighting in Falluja, Iraq and called on all concerned to protect them.Through her spokesman in Geneva, Louise Arbour cited allegations that the rules of war designed to shield civilians and combatants had been broken during the current confrontation.”All violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law must be investigated and those responsible for breaches – including deliberate targeting of civilians, indiscriminate and disproportionate attacks, the killing of injured persons and the use of human shields – must be brought to justice, be they members of the Multinational Force or insurgents,” spokesman José Diaz told reporters. He also voiced the High Commissioner’s concern about poor access to humanitarian aid in Falluja and about the lack of information regarding the number of civilian casualties.Ms. Arbour called on parties in the fighting to take “every possible precaution” to protect civilians,” he said.Meanwhile, the World Food Programme (WFP) said it was closely monitoring the situation of internally displaced persons and others affected by the events in Falluja and has pledged to help Iraqi institutions provide food through the public distribution system if necessary.In other developments, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, Ashraf Qazi, met today in Baghdad with Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi for talks on how to advance the political process in the country, a UN spokesman said.Discussions also dealt with the security situation in the country and preparations for national election, set to take place towards the end of January, Fred Eckhard told the press in New York. read more

Coast Guard tows Russian ship carrying fuel that was drifting in rough

Coast Guard tows Russian ship carrying fuel that was drifting in rough seas off Canadian coast by The Associated Press Posted Oct 17, 2014 10:32 pm MDT OLD MASSETT, B.C. – Canadian coast guard officials secured a towline to a Russian container ship carrying hundreds of tons of fuel as it drifted without power in rough seas off British Columbia’s pristine northern coast. The move lessened the threat of the ship running aground, hitting the rocks and causing a spill.The Canadian Forces’ joint rescue co-ordinationcentre said the Russian carrier Simushir lost power off Haida Gwaii, also known as the Queen Charlotte Islands, as it made its way from Everett in Washington state to Russia.The Council of the Haida Nation said late Friday the Coast Guard Ship Gordon Reid managed to secure a towline and the two vessels were moving away from the coastline at Gwaii Haanas at 1.5 knots. The statement noted the situation remained highly tenuous, and the outcome was subject to weather. Another coast guard ship was expected to arrive early Saturday and attempt to assist in towing the vessel to Prince Rupert, British Columbia, depending on weather.The ship was drifting northwest in stormy seas Friday, away from shore, but Roger Girouard, an assistant commissioner with the Canadian Coast Guard, said it had no propulsion. The ship lost power late Thursday, officials said.The fear of oil spills is especially acute in British Columbia, where residents remember the Exxon Valdez disaster of 1989. Such worries have fed fierce opposition — particularly from environmentalists and Canada’s native tribes — to a current proposal to build a pipeline that would carry oil from Canada’s Alberta oil sands to the Pacific Coast for shipment to Asia. Opponents say the proposed pipeline would bring about 220 large oil tankers a year to the province’s coast.The president of the Council of the Haida Nation, warned earlier Friday that a storm coming into the area was expected to push the ship onto the rocky shore.“If it hits where it’s going to hit, this ship is going to be torn apart,” Pete Lantin said. “We expect a catastrophic event and a huge disaster on our hands.”About 5,000 people live on the island and fish for food nearby, Lantin said.Girouard said their top concern was the fuel and diesel oil onboard and the risk that the ship could hit the rocks and break apart.He earlier said if the ship did come apart the rough seas would break up the oil “so we would have an ally there. It’s cold weather so we don’t have a lot of migratory species right at the moment.”He said they have been already moving assets to the region to respond should the break apart and spill.Acting Canadian Sub. Lt. Ron MacDougall said the Simushir, which is about 440 feet (135 metres) long, was carrying “a range of hydrocarbons, mining materials and other related chemicals.” That included 400 tons of bunker oil and 50 tons of diesel.The vessel is not a tanker but rather a container ship. In comparison, the Exxon Valdez, spilled out 35,000 metric tons of oil.A spokesman for Russian shipping firm SASCO, the owners of the vessel, said it is carrying 298 containers of mining equipmentin addition to heavy bunker fuel as well as diesel oil onboard for the voyage.The U.S. Coast Guard had a helicopter on standby in the event that the entire crew needed to be pulled off the ship. Officials said the captain was evacuated, but they were given no further medical details.Rough weather was a concern. MacDougall said there were 18-mph (29-kph) winds with high seas. Environment Canada had issued a storm warning for much of the northern coast, including the area around Haida Gwaii.The Haida Nation said it had set up an emergency command centre in Old Massett, located on the northern tip of Haida Gwaii, in case the vessel runs aground.The Simushir is registered in Kholmsk, Russia, and owned by SASCO, also known as Sakhalin Shipping Company, according to the company’s website. The SASCO website says the ship was built in the Netherlands in 1998._____Associated Press writer Rob Gillies in Toronto and Kathy McCarthy in Seattle, Washington contributed to this report.

Carmaker hits trouble with advert that takes pot shot at hunting

Stewart Abbott, from Belper, in Derbyshire, added: “Well done Seat UK for looking forward. It really should be in the past.”In a response to criticism of the advert the Spanish car manufacturer stated: “The ‘Because Them, us’ advert  is all about the strength of the individual. Seat UK supports and encourages those who contribute to a more inclusive society and the metaphors in this advertisement reflect that, encouraging people to move forwards in life and make a positive contribution to society. It features art by Jonathan Calugi created in association with the mental health charity Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).”Mr Calugi added: “The idea behind the artwork is that we are all connected and helping each other.” The Countryside Alliance said that the advert should not have been given approval, claiming it breaches rules banning political advertising. A spokesperson said: “We are surprised that Clearcast saw fit to ban Iceland’s Christmas Rang-Tan advert, but let this clearly political advert air.  “When this advert first aired over the festive period, hundreds of thousands of people attended meets to show their support for hunts up and down the country. “It is a shame Seat have gone out of their way to alienate so many potential customers, as well as anyone else who wants to see advertising free of subliminal political messages.”A number of Seat owners have also criticised the advert for it’s representation of the hunting community.Graham Atkinson, from Cumbria, wrote to Seat on Twitter: “I have just seen your advert describing the tradition of Fox Hunting as ‘Backward’. Your quote: ‘Because they look back’, can someone please explain this? I take part in Countryside pursuits, and own a Seat Ibiza. I may now rethink my decision on this.”Francesca Jones, from Crewe, added: “I don’t take part in country pursuits but don’t shame those who do. I own a SEAT too. Feel like I need to watch the advert again to see who else they are slagging off.”However others defended its stance. One Scottish environmental activist said: “Thanks immensely Seat UK for your bravery, morality and catching feelings of vast majority in posting the anti-hunting ad. Seeing wildlife free enhances health of so many of us.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Car manufacturer Seat have been accused of “political advertising” after they used footage of fox hunting in an advert to represent “backwards” attitudes.The advert, released last month, is titled ‘Because them, us’ and is themed around the idea of challenging the conventions of the past.It contrasts a series of more traditional scenes with alternatives, such as commuting versus working on a laptop outdoors and a dinner party versus a food truck. One of the juxtapositions sees footage of a group of fox-hunters with hounds, with the words “Because they look back” emblazoned over it, contrasted with a group of young adults walking across a bridge with the message “We move forward”. This has prompted an angry response from some in the hunting community. Country Life writer Octavia Pollock tweeted: “The ad is absolutely disgusting. Intolerant, prejudiced, ignorant. “Never buy Seat UK, not a brand for any open-minded person with respect for the ways of life millions hold dear, not to mention great art & reasoned debate. Just fostering division.” read more

The example Neymar needs to follow from Ronaldo Nazario

first_imgIt’s time to talk about the example that Neymar urgently needs to follow from Ronaldo Nazario if he wants to keep playing football at the highest level.Now that a few days have passed with Neymar’s new right ankle injury, a new pattern has emerged that brings up several similarities with Ronaldo Nazario’s career and the comparisons now have become inevitable.Let us illustrate you in a little bit of football history. When Ronaldo Nazario was starting his career as one of the most impressive strikers anyone had ever seen, he was coming out as the ideal Romario replacement at FC Barcelona and that first season with the Catalan club was one of the most impressive anybody ever witnessed in modern football.We are obviously talking about the pre-Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo era, the Brazilian Ronaldo was the very first example of what a modern striker could become in today’s football.But not everything was bound to be perfect for the player, he had a curse that eventually caught up to him and even ended his career in the blink of an eye.Just like Neymar did recently, Ronaldo left Barcelona after a strong disagreement with the board of directors and decided to hear the offer from the highest bidder.Internazionale Milano made the transfer of the century back then, they got the best player in the world and everything seemed okay at that moment.Before his career-threatening knee injuries, Ronaldo scored 130 goals in 155 league games all against the ilkes of Maldini, Nesta, Costacurta, Thuram, Roberto Carlos, Hierro, Cafu, Aldair, Blind, De Boer & Mihajlovic.— FourFourTweet (@FourFourTweet) January 16, 2019Between 1994 and 1999, Ronaldo scored 115 goals in 134 games before his first knee injury. The greatest.— 90s Football (@90sfootball) August 14, 2017But Ronaldo was coming from a large period of playing a style of football that was very risky for his knees, something terrible was bound to happen due to this dribbling style that can only support players who are lightweight and drastic turns are not as bad on the joints.But Ronaldo was gaining more pounds as time went by, he was still the most impressive footballer anyone had ever seen during his first couple of years at Inter and he even delivered unforgettable performance such as the UEFA Cup final against Lazio.The trick for Ronaldo was in the way he changed direction and his pacing, something that eventually brought him a career-ending knee ligament injury that kept him out of the game for a little over two years.The recovery process was incredibly painful for Ronaldo, but he was determined to return to the very top of world football. During this time of gruesome recovery and reflecting, the Brazilian striker realized that in order to keep scoring many goals he needed to change his playing style and become more practical with his finishing skills.We weren’t going to see the same spectacular Ronaldo anymore, but we still got that same natural born predator by the time the 2002 World Cup came.On this day in 1999, Ronaldo suffered a knee injury that would keep him out for three years… 🚑He returned for the 2002 World Cup – top-scoring with eight goals as Brazil won the competition! 🏆David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.O Fenômeno. 🇧🇷— Goal (@goal) November 21, 2018Sigue con tu MAGIA Neymar. No cambies nunca. Te amo. Volverás mas fuerte.— Andreina Dessiree (@AndreinaRoldan) January 29, 2019Neymar has a very similar decision to make but he still hasn’t realized it, the PSG star needs to understand that he can’t keep playing that dangerous ‘Ginga’ style of football because the rivals will always come to get him.Just as Ronaldo had those dreaded knees, Neymar now has that cursed right ankle which he has already injured three times throughout his career.The first time was when he played for Barcelona and he recovered in time for the 2014 Champions League’s Round of 16, the second time was the already familiar injury from last year that almost kept him from playing the FIFA World Cup in Russia.And finally, Neymar suffered a blow in the same area of the previous injury that may keep him from playing against Manchester United in February and it may even keep him from playing the Copa America in Brazil.Neymar needs to stop listening to people like his father and make a mature decision to stop risking himself that much during a game, he is way too talented to throw his career down the drain like that just because of pride or keeping a style.Neymar needs to follow Ronaldo Nazario’s example, but time could run out for him if he doesn’t realize it soon enough.La maldición del tobillo derecho de 🇧🇷Neymar 🚑😳📆 Enero 2014.

Europe suffering from Italian mafia cancer

first_img‘Europe suffering from Italian mafia cancer`International anti-mafia stings may have increased in recent months, but Italian organised crime groups constitute a social and economic “cancer” that the world seems to underestimate, experts say.The most high-profile recent operation saw 90 mobsters from the Calabrian ‘Ndrangheta mafia arrested in December in six different countries, in raids involving hundreds of police officers.While the notorious Sicilian Cosa Nostra is well known to be present in Australia, Canada and the United States, other Italian mafias have been globalising too — with Europe Union countries among their top destinations.The three main groups — Cosa Nostra, the Neapolitan Camorra and the ‘Ndrangheta — are “among the most threatening in Europe” because of the global reach of their criminal operations, according to Europol.Their power lies in their control and exploitation of territory and community, including installing allies in administrative positions even in places far from the territories they control, the European police agency said.Italian mafia-hunting expert Cristiano Tomassi cited cases of entire neighbourhoods in European cities which are under the control of organised crime groups, and are having the life strangled out of them.”Why does it seem like nothing’s going on in those areas? Because the mafia is in control, but it is not a healthy control, it is like a cancer that progresses. And where there is a cancer there is no more life,” Tomassi told AFP.”Petty crime no longer exists, but neither does the healthy economy. It’s true that weeds no longer grow, but grass doesn’t grow either,” said Tomassi, a police colonel and organised crime analyst with anti-mafia investigative authority DIA.Mobsters ‘think like economists’The powerful Italian mafias make their money in large-scale drug trafficking and money laundering, as well as currency and goods counterfeiting, and the trafficking of toxic waste.They wreak heavy damage on local and national economies, according to the latest DIA report: They “pollute financial and credit channels, disrupt competition and the markets (and) promote black market activities and tax evasion.”In places suffering an economic crisis — such as Europe — the mafia infiltrates even more easily, for “whoever brings in new money can initially be seen as a resource,” says Tomassi, referring to the mob’s “almost unlimited” financial means.Tomassi and his colleagues at the authority’s imposing offices on the outskirts of Rome have been forced in recent years to expand their scope beyond Germany, France and Spain to eastern European countries.Assets worth 250 million euros ($280 million) were seized in a recent operation in Romania, where the mafia had got its claws into everything from construction companies to hundreds of apartments and even spas, Tomassi said.”Mafiosi reason like economists: growth rates and development prospects are higher (in Eastern EU countries) even than those in prosperous Germany,” he said.’A choice for life’Investigators have uncovered mob activity in Slovakia, for example, where the ‘Ndrangheta is attempting a favourite mafia pastime — syphoning off European Union grants, he added.Vast sums are also to be made through illegal gambling, and the mob has been moving its operations in that sector to Austria, the Netherlands Antilles, Panama, Romania and Spain, “where the law is most advantageous in terms of tax”.Drawing heavily on DIA expertise, the European Commission set up a new EU taskforce at the end of last year aimed primarily at fighting Italian organised crime groups, as well as Eurasian and Albanian criminal networks.Experts know well that the issues key to understanding the mafia — the concepts of family, power, respect and territory — also make their clans difficult to infiltrate.”It’s a choice for life. You decide to embrace a lifestyle, an idea, and that’s the difference between the mafia and ‘simple’ organised crime,” Tomassi said.”When you’re a mafioso, it’s forever”.last_img

OnStar opens gate for thirdparty developers

first_img More information: Press release OnStar changes over privacy concerns ( — OnStar staged a Sunday night conference at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to announce that the telematics provider will open its application program interface (API) to third-party developers. OnStar also used the CES venue to announce that it has struck a deal with Verizon that will make use of Verizon’s 4G LTE service to carry a variety of content. The beam-up to bring digital cars of the future to 2012 is a competitive move by GM-owned OnStar to enhance its portfolio of services. Pragmatic locked-out uses will extend into lock-me-in uses in infotainment. The move is aimed at giving customers more reasons to be willing to stay with OnStar. Company president Linda Marshall said, “Customer demand is driving a new marketplace for a variety of automotive applications. With this step we believe we can broaden our portfolio, grow our business and enable our customers to achieve additional functionality from their vehicle using their computer, smartphone, tablet or other device.” Video: CES 2012 OnStar APIAs a technology-centric service, OnStar said it had to move faster than the longer automobile development cycles. Selected developers can plan on getting on board with OnStar in the first half of this year via its Advanced Telematics Operating System (ATOMS) server, which connects to over six million customers.Popularly cited statistics show that, over the past 15 years, OnStar Advisors have answered 346 million button pushes, responded to over 160,000 vehicle crashes, unlocked more than 5 million doors, provided 2.6 million with roadside assistance and routed customers to their destination more than 70 million times.Now OnStar wants to travel into additional, customized territory. Like other companies, OnStar has recognized that opening up to third-party developers can be a fast and profitable way to bring successful products to market.The possibilities include restaurant reviews, apps for cars with large fleets, social networking, gaming, and maintenance-related text alerts.Early users at the ATOMS gate will be GM-backed RelayRides, a peer to peer service that was launched in 2010. Last year, San Francisco-based RelayRides announced its special partnership with GM. Relay Rides is a company that has users renting out their cars to others. The idea is that OnStar subscribers who use RelayRides can unlock the reserved car through OnStar with a smartphone. The app will launch this year.Video: OnStar RelayRidesOn the Verizon side, the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network will be used for OnStar service. A demo at CES showed a Verizon rep Skyping from the back seat of a 4G-enabled Volt. Using Verizon’s high-speed 4G LTE network, the vision is vehicle occupants accessing streaming content from the web, holding Skype video conversations and playing games.When asked about costs, a senior OnStar executive at the Vegas show said several pricing options may be possible.According to OnStar, developers interested in the API should contact OnStar at developers(at) Citation: OnStar opens gate for third-party developers (2012, January 9) retrieved 18 August 2019 from Explore further © 2011 This document is subject to copyright.

LeBron apologized after the game, but Colin doesn’t have a problem with it.It drives Colin crazy when stars like Andrew Luck go out of their way to avoid laying into teammates who aren’t doing their job. Most of the all-time greats across sports, from MJ, to Kobe, to Tom Brady have all laid into their teammates. Jordan even punched people in practice.“Leadership is what LeBron James did yesterday. Got in a guy’s face.”Zags over the Tar Heels in a close oneUNC faces off against Gonzaga for the national title tonight. It’s a matchup between a traditional power school and a former Cinderella turned perennial juggernaut. Carolina enters the game as a 1.5 point favorite.Colin is taking the Zags in a close one, even though he likes the Bulldogs’ personnel better than the Tar Heels’, he likes Carolina’s big game experience, including having played in the last year’s title game against Villanova.All signs point to a close game late, with both teams having a chance to win.

Tony Blair tourism an instrument for change

first_img“Globalisation is changing the world, technology is transforming the world,” Mr Blair said. Speaking to delegates at the inaugural World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Asia Summit 2013, Mr Blair said decision-making in this post 9/11 world is a difficult task for decision makers, given the scope, scale and speed of change. The former UK Prime Minister said countries like India and Indonesia will also dominate the landscape of travel as economic output becomes more aligned with size of population. “Therefore the need to cooperate and build alliances has never been stronger than it is today,” Mr Blair said. Given the unpredictabile world in which we live, the need for cooperation is more important than ever, especially in the areas of tourism and travel, according to former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair. Given this precedent, Mr Blair emphasised knowledge as the key to opening our minds to others. “As power shifts east, the west is going to have to discover a new spirit of partnership with these countries, in which power will be shared.” With power shifting from west to east, education and partnership will be vital. Source = ETB News: P.T.center_img “Power is shifting east and its shifting fast… in the realm of tourism, over the next ten to fifteen years China will become the biggest nation in the world.” Despite the need for change, there has been little proof in human history that a shift in the global geo-political power balance can occur without conflict. “The industry that you represent is an industry that can genuinely help to bring about not just commerce and prosperity but peace, security and understanding.” “We need to know about each other because it is ignorance that breeds fear and fear that breeds conflict,” Mr Blair said. ETB News is reporting live from Seoul at the WTTC Asia Summit this week. WTTC president and chief executive David Scowsill and former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair. “That’s why travel and tourism are not just important for enjoyment and business; people visiting other countries and cultures provide a powerful basis for acceptance and education.last_img read more

The NRMLA/RiskSpan Reverse Mortgage Market Index (RMMI) found that in Q2 2018, the total housing wealth of homeowners aged 62 and older in the U.S. grew to $6.9 trillion, a $130 billion in senior home equity over Q1 2018.NRMLA President and CEO Peter Bell notes that for most homeowners, the home represents the largest chunk of personal wealth.”If you consider that the typical retiree household might have one or two incomes from Social Security, a modest pension and/or limited income from low-yielding fixed-income instruments, and, perhaps, a diminished 401(k) account, then home equity becomes their greatest asset and an important resource for funding their future,” said Bell.The NRMLA RMMI hit its highest mark since 2000 in Q2, at 249.37, and the NRMLA notes that the increase is mainly driven by an estimated 1.7 percent or $143 billion increase in senior home values, offset by a 0.8 percent or $12.8 billion increase of senior-held mortgage debt.Seniors weren’t the only group to see rises in equity in Q2, however. According to the CoreLogic Homeowner Equity Insights for Q2 2018, equity for all homeowners with mortgages has increased by 12.3 percent, or by $981 billion since Q2 2017.“Homeowner property values continued to increase in value this quarter with homeowners gaining an average of $16,200 in home equity wealth,” said Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic. “When aggregated across all homeowners, that totals almost $1 trillion in gains in home equity wealth. This wealth gain will support additional consumption spending and home improvement expenditures in coming years.”Additionally, the total number of mortgaged residential properties with negative equity, borrowers who owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth, went down by 20.1 percent, from 2.8 million homes in Q2 2017 to 2.2 million in Q2 2018. The national aggregate value of negative equity was approximately $279.8 billion in Q2 2018.center_img September 25, 2018 590 Views Sharelast_img read more

political economics China and current affairs It has been a pretty speedy descent from truth to truthiness to fake news And many of us are asking ourselves if should we just throw in the towel and start putting out fake news of our own The late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously said "Everyone is entitled to his own opinion but not to his own facts" In our time many beg to differ On the so-called "progressive" end of the political spectrum which I am happy to inhabit a common narrative about the recent presidential election is that we lost the battle in the media due in good part to unfair and dishonest manipulation by the Trump side Once you believe that it is a small step to Why not do likewise and win next time This is a question I have heard in several conversationsnever advocated for but nonetheless raised The special problem with fake news in a democracyas opposed to satire spoofs and performance artis that if citizens can be made to believe completely fabricated stories we will choose our leadership based on false information Although Trump lied repeatedly on his way to winning the election this did not prevent him from winning the hearts and minds of nearly 63 million voters Most likely it helped Perhaps you know that Hillary Clinton is not the overlord of a satanic cult or a ring of pedophiles but such stories were certainly produced and consumed by significant numbers of voters Moreover in a case where the lie is more believable (like for example Hillary is suffering from some terminal malady) how certain really are you that it is false Somehow we have devolved to a point where moral equivalence is given to stories made up from whole cloth Yet especially at this time of hyper-connectivity a rebuttal simply perpetuates the original meme linking a candidate stickily in the mind of the voter to a despicable or otherwise disqualifying attribute Over the centuries philosophers have inquired as to the nature of truth Modern theories put their own variation on the question of whether there is such a thing as objective reality going so far as to aver that there is no objective reality other than our own beliefs Contemporary science with its ever-greater ability to see subatomic particles has paradoxically thrust us into a world where probability has replaced certainty And politics seems to be mimicking contemporary philosophic and scientific uncertainties If finally there is no objective reality we can be sure is true then why not just pick ones own favorite narrative and call it truth That "the first casualty of war is truth" is a verity that has been known for centuries And if this is war why should progressives not lie in the service of a greater truth So the heck with it right We have a president-elect who has seated Americas top ultra-right-wing propagandist at his right hand Why not take off the gloves and say "When they go low we go lower" Well one problem is that precisely at the juncture where the end of preserving a greater truth justifies the means of one lie or another we risk infecting ourselves (and the end we achieve) with the methods we have chosen to achieve them Just as a revolutionary who seizes power in the name of the people through bloodshed unwittingly transforms into a murderous dictator if you lie your way into power will you not govern through lies If we are ready to embrace outright lying as a path to regaining power arent we destroying our political village in order to save it Another aspect to consider is would lies even work better than truth Because when you have created a nice lie you still must get the publics attention for it Trump could teach a master class in how it is done perhaps titled How to Conjure a False Controversy to Overshadow a Fraud Settlement We have a PEOTUS who apparently falsely claims 224 million Twitter followers But whatever the true number is each time he tweets its picked up by global news reporters who amplify his voice even as he
