Topic: CLOSED FOR THE SUMMER
Hi there again or if you are a first time visitor welcome to
Ricks Machs Cafe.
Grin nope I dont smoke I quit but its not the first time I get to call my self an ex do you get me? Grin. Hey listen if youre so good at naming piano tunes why dont you go over to that bench and take Sams old position and play like him? Grin disappears.
Ok so my blogging gig is up I don't have time ..(O)-.. to blog so I find what I really need to do , or what I should do is speed up to change my medium to adopt to a new format, like a free online zine for instance.
Okay but for now here we go.....
The prominent art dealer Michael Werner has just donated 130 works to Paris’s municipal Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris
If link or page doesnt load try this one, please.
Werner opened his first gallery in Berlin in 1963, before inaugurating another in Cologne in 1967 and then New York in 1990. This autumn he opens a new space in London, in Upper Brook Street, with a show of Peter Doig, and at the same time the Musée d’Art Moderne will present a mega-show of 800 works from Werner’s collection, including some of his donation (October 5 - March 13 2013).
A New York Times’ writer named Nicholas Kristof has come out and writ it’s harder now to hide facts from the public, saying, ”Modern information technologies raise the cost of repression.”
How easy is that to say when you are talking about the so-called "developing world" and coutries that work actively supress what we affectionately call: democracy?
It's not like a country is a finished product after all. Countries have to work to maintain their democracies. Citizens are only once and for all only totally free when they are free from policing, watchdogging, enforcing and ensuring elected members do as they promise, run efficiently without scandal and shenanigans, refrain from corruptive practices which erode confidence and so on. This heads to the pumping aorta and ventricle that stems to the beating heart of the issue my friends. You said it. Trust. Us.
n the 40th Anniversary of Watergate, replete with its small bevy of commemorative gatherings in certain small tight DC journalistic circles now comes thus
. (It reminds me now of the time I thought: what would have Columbus blog looked like if he had charted his journey live on the Internet i.e. Date 1492 . 3 months at sea, have found land. Week 2. "Natives are friendly enough but some members of my own party are starting to disrespect my authority."
You can bet if a person drops the name "Plame" in an article about scandal and sources, for purposes of veracity, and red herring-ness and other ducks that walk around going quack quck quack...
it had better not be doing so for funny noises from its armpit...it might ruffle a few feathers.
So what exactly does one make of a headline which dares to ask:
Could leaks sink the Obama White House?
So my new venture would have seperate sections. One for national, international and local.
Heres a great example of what I would include as fodder for international in the new up and coming format
Turkey: Public Theaters in the Crosshairs of Culture War
As everyone knows, as the backdrop for the situation in Syria that changes analytical bearing each and every day, it isnt getting better with words of a chart to path evading the US as surely as it does from Russia, Turkey is taking in people who have had enough of that situation. In the news , any country taking on refugee's from any situation is a sure sign of bad to worse.
Look at the latest geocache of splintering from battle that is clamouring for bleed space on your newspaper. Somewhere Mrs Clinton stopped over on her way to Syria I think. Are we onto a totally unimaginable scenario from yesterday? Five days ago?
Azerbaijan and Armenia
I could probably do better to use one of these
if I wanted to blog to draw attention for stories like these
Tajikistan: On Afghanistan’s Heroin Highway, Corruption Fuels Addiction and HIV
Funny way to end an article, too. Copyright infringement be damned.
Funny, that's really funny.
So I figure in light of all this, showing what is happening in Turkey of all places, culturally and politically on the map, why not offer a splice of where we are at here in Canada? Voila.
We want local.
It does not mean we should be un-necesarily proud or are not willing to do better. Whats always been the enemy of better?
I think it it means are crowing achivement be a reality tv show on trophy wives, we have a long road in front of us indeed. But challenges have always been the impetus for growth and change and this one is no different.
And thus ends this lengthy blog entry, but I leave you with all the links and stories I don't have time -(O)- to provide a running commentary on, but with hopes by visiting you get a brief snapshot of my encapusulated world view online. This aint Tumblr but it very well could be.
Canada is among the planet's top 10 sources of greenhouse gas pollution. ... by transferring activities and their associated pollution to other sectors such as the refining industry. ....
A little-known Canadian industry wants the right to build what Americans and Europeans can build: Ornamental guard rails on balconies and decks.

Locals need help. No one steps forward.
Fortress Paper Ltd said it ramped up production of highly refined dissolving pulp, used in making rayon products, and increased its shipments to China, sending the company’s shares up 16 percent.
Production at the company’s specialty cellulose mill in Thurso, Quebec has averaged 92 percent of its targeted capacity during the last 10 days, Fortress said.
The mill, which has an annual production capacity of about 200,000 tonnes, started production in December.
