‘Angel’ descends on St Mark’s Square

Claudia Marchiori dressed as an “angel” descends on Saint Mark’s Square during the Venice Carnival, Italy, yesterday. Tens of thousands of revellers in masks and period costume packed the square yesterday for the “flight of the angel,” the traditional opening of the Venice Carnival. On the 12th chime of midday from St Mark’s Campanile, Marchiori descended gracefully from the famous bell tower, attached to a wire 80 meters above the crowd that had gathered for one of the world’s most famous carnivals.

Quotation of the Day…

(Don Boudreaux) Tweet… is from Ludwig von Mises’s 1958 essay “Foreign Investment“: The only way to increase industrialization is to have more capital.  Protectionism can only divert investments from one branch of business to another branch. Protectionism, in itself, does not add anything to the capital of a country.  To start a new factory one needs capital. […]

Hitler 'Doppleganger' Busted in Austria

He looked mighty familiar. Now a man identifying himself as “Harald Hitler” and sporting the clothing, slicked-down black hair and toothbrush mustache of der Führer has been arrested by Austrian police on suspicion of “glorifying” the Nazi dictator. “Hitler” had been spotted several times over the last week in the border town of Braunau am Inn, Adolf Hitler’s birthplace, and posing for photos at the building where the German dictator was born. Police said the 25-year-old man had recently moved to the town. He had also been seen on the streets of Graz and Vienna, according to police. Officials said his intent was to honor the Nazi leader. “It is definitely not a carnival joke or an art project. The young man knows exactly what he is doing,” said a local police spokesman, the Telegraph reported.  “I have often seen this gentleman in Braunau and wonder if this means something,” the Oberösterreichische Nachrichten quoted a local resident as saying, reported German broadcaster Deutsche Welle. Glorifying the Nazi era or Hitler is a crime in Austria. Similar anti-Nazi laws exist in Germany, France and Italy. Media that ran photos of “Harald” blurred out the man’s face. “Harald’s” actual name wasn’t provided by police. Austrian officials reportedly plan to turn the building where Hitler was born in 1889 into a charity headquarters for the disabled, though some also want the structure demolished. The building has become a magnet for neo-Nazis. Hitler moved to German in 1913. Hitler’s shadow lurks in the background whenever there’s a resurgence in Europe of the extreme right — and the emergence of Nazi symbols and sympathizers triggers crackdowns. On Sunday, Amazon yanked controversial self-published books that deny the Holocaust occurred off its websites in countries where such books are prohibited under anti-Nazi laws. The books vanished from the sites following an investigation by The Times of London that found dozens of such titles were being offered for sale in those countries. The books are still available on Amazon websites in other countries, including in Britain and the U.S.  type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Coverage + articlesList=55acecefe4b0d2ded39f51d8,584021c1e4b0c68e047efd18,57b33fb6e4b0863b0284f882 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Canadians Freak Out As Sarah Palin's Name Comes Up For Ambassador

But first to complain were politicians. New Democrat Party member of Parliament Nathan Cullen told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation it would be difficult to take the former Alaska governor and onetime vice-presidential candidate seriously because she wouldn’t know the truth “if it jumped up and knocked her on the head.” He also compared her to “another Donald Trump.” Another NDP member of Parliament, Charlie Angus, characterized such a choice as insulting, saying it shows “how little” Trump and Steve Bannon “think of Canada.” Sarah Palin as ambassador? Well that would show how little Steve Bannon and his pal @realDonaldTrump think of Canada https://t.co/Js4B2Qseah— Charlie Angus NDP (@CharlieAngusNDP) February 8, 2017 Then the rest of Canada piled on their Alaska neighbor. Speculation first arose last month after the resignation of ambassador Bruce Heyman, who was appointed by Barack Obama. It kicked up Wednesday when Spicer, pressed specifically on a Palin ambassador appointment at a White House news conference, did not count her out. “We have no additional ambassador nominations or announcements to make on that front,” he said. “I’m sure at some point we will have, soon.” A headline in the Ottawa Citizen warned that Palin could “bring her carnival show here.” Twitter users’ #SarahPalin comments ranged from the hilarious to the horrified. Lots made fun of her notorious geographical mistakes (she boasted during the 2008 presidential campaign that you could “see Russia” from Alaska, as evidence of her global experience) and apparent general cluelessness about foreign affairs. Sarah Palin is being considered for job as ambassador to Canada. She's presently on a flight to Europe to meet with us. #sarahpalin— Rob Willcott (@advantagephysio) February 9, 2017 No Sarah Palin, that's Mexico. Canada's in the other direction.#sarahpalin #trump pic.twitter.com/eFybxJ8UyB— dm gillis (@dmgillis) February 9, 2017 Michael @deAdder toon says it all, Eh! #sarahpalin can see #Canada from her backyard #YouBetcha! pic.twitter.com/6graLFQOVt— Miss Myrtle (@MissMyrtle2) February 9, 2017 Others were mostly stunned. One asked Trump instead to simply bomb the country, and signed the tweet: “All intelligent life in Canada.” A number of Americans apologized for the potential nomination, with one saying a Palin appointment was “no way to treat a friend.” One reminded Palin to “drive on the other side of the road.” Dear Mr. Trump: Rather than appoint Sarah Palin as ambassador to Canada, please bomb us. Signed, all intelligent life in Canada. #killmenow— Doug Youmans (@dippedbanana) February 8, 2017 As an American citizen, I want to apologize to Canada. Appointing #sarahpalin as Ambassador is no way to treat a friend. https://t.co/UZRGLqmvvj— Marion Swan (@BlueEyesSwan) February 9, 2017 #sarahpalin @SarahPalinUSA if you do come to Canada don't forget to drive on the other side of the road— Mark Flanagan (@flanagan61) February 9, 2017 #sarahpalin potential ambassador to Canada?! pic.twitter.com/PdZiqmsldK— Naomi Elizabeth (@Naomi_Beth2) February 9, 2017 type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related Coverage + articlesList=589cd796e4b0c1284f2b74d2,564b765ce4b08cda348affeb,586e74ede4b099cdb0fbb984,566998a9e4b009377b23f784,564e4f29e4b0d4093a570fce -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
