Leningrad take to the stage at Sziget Festival once again

Leningrad, the elementary Russian ska classic who are celebrating their twentieth year of existence, are once again returning to Hungary's world famous Sziget Festival. Catch Russia's most famous bad boy Sergey "Shnur" Shnurov and his motley crew of guitarists, drummers, sax players, vocalists and other musicians and non-musicians on the World Music Stage on Aug. 15. The band was formed in the late 1990s and is known for combining rich brass sounds, catchy tunes, and extravagant performances. Leningrad are also known for using obscene lyrics in their songs, so there’s rarely a dull moment during their shows. Shnur spoke exclusively to Russia Today about life, music, and politics.  Over the past thirty years, ever since the collective term world music (widespread for the ethnic-based music) came to be, it has become one of the most popular music trends. Bands and performers became well-known from countries of which you don’t hear about too often, and where - as the Cape Verde Islands and Madagascar - record industry did not exist. Sziget World Music Stage has been taking the part in the world music movement since 2000 and at its current site it serves approximately 15,000 people. Over the past 17 years, the stage has gained an outstanding international ranking, thanks to the best of the best of the genre performing here. More than two hundred artists have accepted the invitation, the world's biggest stars from England to Guinea from Belgium to Senegal.

Fitness Buff Turned Trash At The Beach Into Full-Fledged Gym

Most people go to the beach to kick back. Not Alcindo Soares. Soares always dreamed of becoming a professional athlete, Great Big Story reported in its profile of the exercise buff. But when he couldn’t afford to join a gym in Cape Verde, an island country off the coast of West Africa, he decided to build his own. Soares, who works in construction, collects the detritus he finds on the shores of Santa Maria beach and fashions it into workout equipment. The outdoor facility is replete with many of the trappings you’d find at a standard fitness club, including weights, pull-up bars and a bench for dips. But there’s no membership fee here. There’s a dual purpose behind Soares’ mission. He’s is cleaning up his beach at a time when environmentalists are particularly concerned about the amount of pollution in our oceans. There are more than 150 million tons of plastic in marine waters today. At this rate, there will be more plastics than fish (by weight) in the oceans by 2050.  Soares is also providing a free community center to an area that’s been ravaged by poverty. In Cape Verde, 21 percent of the population lives below the international poverty line, meaning they subsist on less than $1.25 a day. “For as long as I live, I’ll continue to use it,” Soares told Great Big Story of his gym. “Train, then go swim in the ocean, and the day is complete.” type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related... + articlesList=58fed37be4b0c46f0781d426,58ff7685e4b0b6f6014b0d03,5866c5c0e4b0d9a5945b6168,58d006e9e4b00705db51431e -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Justin Trudeau Pledged $650 Million To Counter Trump's Anti-Abortion Rule

Trudeau’s pledge, which is aimed at addressing gender-based violence, female genital mutilation and forced marriage, as well as providing women with safe and legal abortions and post-abortion care, came after President Donald Trump announced in January that he would reinstate what’s know as the “global gag rule.” The rule is a U.S. government policy that bans organizations around the world that receive federal aid from providing information about abortions or offering abortion services. Democratic and Republican presidents have historically used the rule as a political football, reinstating or rescinding it depending on which party is in the White House. The policy could have serious consequences for women’s health. According to Marie Stopes International, an organization that provides global abortions services, the funding cut to their activities alone will result in a projected 6.5 million unwanted pregnancies, 2.2 million abortions and 21,700 deaths over the next four years.   The premise that reducing abortion access reduces abortions is inaccurate, according to a 2015 report published by BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology. Women don’t stop having abortions when their access to safe and legal abortions services is limited. Instead, they have unsafe abortions, which could mean having the procedure performed by someone who doesn’t have formal medical training or that it is performed in unhygienic conditions.  “When women want to end a pregnancy they find a way,” Susheela Singh, the lead author of the 2015 report, previously told The Huffington Post. “Even in countries with very restrictive laws, women are still seeking abortions.” In January, the Netherlands started a global fund to help women access abortion services, and pledged $10 million toward the four-year, $600 million funding gap the country said Trump’s gag rule reinstatement decision created. Norway followed suit in February with its own $10 million pledge. Other countries that have supported the fund include Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, Canada and Cape Verde, according to Reuters. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Norway Pledges $10 Million To Counter Trump's Global Anti-Abortion Move

In January, the Netherlands started a global fund to help women access abortion services, saying Trump’s “global gag rule” meant a funding gap of $600 million over the next four years, and has pledged $10 million to the initiative to replace that. Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, Canada and Cape Verde have all also lent their support. “The government is increasing its support for family planning and safe abortion by 85 million Norwegian crowns ($10 million) compared with 2016,” Prime Minister Erna Solberg said. “At a time when this agenda has come under pressure, a joint effort is particularly important,” he said in a statement. Last month, Trump reinstated a policy requiring overseas organizations that receive U.S. family-planning funds to certify they do not perform abortions or provide abortion advice as a method of family planning.

8 Countries Sign Up To Counter Trump's Global Anti-Abortion Move

Isabella Lovin told Reuters a conference would be held on March 2 in Brussels to kick-start the funding initiative to help non-governmental organizations whose family planning projects could be affected. The Netherlands announced in January the launch of a global fund to help women access abortion services, saying Trump’s “global gag rule” would cause a funding shortfall of $600 million over the next four years. Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Luxemburg, Finland, Canada and Cape Verde have all lent their support, Lovin said. “(The gag order) could be so dangerous for so many women,” said Lovin who posed for a photograph this month with seven other female officials signing an environmental bill, in what was seen a response to a photograph of Trump signing the gag order in the White House with five male advisors. The global gag rule, which affects U.S. non-governmental organizations working abroad, is one that incoming presidents have used to signal their positions on abortion rights. It was created under U.S. President Ronald Reagan in 1984. Trump signed it at a ceremony in the White House on his fourth day in office. Barack Obama lifted the gag rule in 2009 when he took office. “If women don’t have control over their bodies and their own fate it can have very serious consequences for global goals of gender rights and global poverty eradication,” Lovin said.   (Reporting by Alistair Scrutton; Editing by Robin Pomeroy) -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Can Trump's Pick for Secretary of State Pass the "Togo Test"?

John Richard Cookson Politics, Americas Visiting one African state—or not—can reveal a lot about the diplomatic agenda. After a wide-ranging selection process, President-elect Donald Trump will reportedly name his secretary of state in the next week or so. As soon as America’s top diplomat is revealed, pundits will undoubtedly pillage through his past, looking for clues that may augur the country’s foreign policy future. There is, however, an even simpler way to determine how the likely sixty-ninth secretary of state will set his agenda: Does he plan to visit Togo or not? It is an odd question, but one which the sixty-seventh secretary of state answered easily. In January 2012, Secretary Hillary Clinton did visit Togo, the nation of seven million wedged between Ghana and Benin in West Africa. In the capital, Lomé, she toured the modernist, multimillion-dollar, Chinese-built presidential palace with President Faure Gnassingbé. As Clinton pointed out later, “No secretary of state had ever been to Togo before.” In fact, no secretary of state has ever been to as many countries as Clinton, before or since. Her successor, John Kerry, is at the moment a full twenty-one stops short of her total 112. To reach that record, Clinton had to visit a number of places usually skipped by U.S. secretaries of state. Between 2009 and 2013, her travels took her to the Cook Islands and Timor Leste, to Angola and Cote d'Ivoire, to Uzbekistan and Mongolia, and to Papua New Guinea and Uruguay. She visited Cape Verde a couple of times. Of course, the relevance of these countries to America’s immediate national interest is somewhere between nearly and entirely nonexistent. Nonetheless, there was intention behind this wild itinerary. Read full article

Islands in the Sun

Cape Verde and Aruba are island nations well on their way to total reliance on clean, renewable energy for their electricity generation needs. Are they harbingers of a transition to take place in mainland nations, which by virtue of size alone make such a shift from fossil fuels a more complicated proposition? If trends are any indication, the islands ambitious transformation foreshadows similar moves in many other parts of the world. Indeed, commitments to derive 100 percent from wind, solar, hydro, and other renewable sources are edging toward our shores slowly but surely. Our own island state of Hawaii is seeking to take advantage of its maritime location and exposure to the elements to emulate its smaller cousins. The goal is 100 percent of its electricity from renewables by 2045. [That still leaves the formidable challenge of phasing out fossil fuel consumption in transportation as a result of the internal combustion engine.] One hundred percent targets have also started to take root in scattered locations on the United States mainland. San Diego, Salt Lake City, and Aspen, Colorado, are among the few cities that have so far officially committed to that ambitious objective. Nor has the energy transition been overlooked on a national level. A resolution has been introduced in Congress calling for a one hundred percent American renewable dependency by the year 2050. Environmental groups recently sponsored a week to promote the establishment of a 100 percent national renewable energy system, also by 2050. A pipe dream? Several well documented studies make the case for reaching that goal in the United States 20 years earlier. Recent technological advances, falling prices, and extensive job creation make attainment of the 2030 goal all the more plausible. Meanwhile, Cape Verde off the coast of West Africa is exploiting its location by adding tidal-generated energy to its current 35 percent renewable mix. The initial target is 50 percent renewable energy dependency in nine of its 10 islands and 100 percent on the remaining one by 2020. Caribbean-situated Aruba is even more ambitious, with a 100 percent target by 2020. Accordingly, it is reducing import duties on wind turbines and solar panels. In our country, there is still some residual unwarranted skepticism regarding the feasibility of a wholesale transition to renewable energy, even as the technology gathers momentum in China, Europe, and many other places abroad. That is all the more reason not to lag in making the changeover lest our nation end up a disadvantaged backwater island in a sea of international energy progress. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Early winter brings extreme conditions to Russia’s soccer fields

Source: Mikhail Japaridze/TASS Russians are hardly surprised by cold weather, but even people who are prepared for the cold can get confused by how football changes from a summer to a winter sport. This year blizzards swept through most of Russia in early November, making the final month of the Russian soccer league program before the winter break a struggle for survival. Moscow’s Spartak, the most popular team in Russia, were probably the unluckiest team in the league when they had to play an away match in Tomsk, Siberia, in conditions of minus 15 degrees Celsius (5 degrees Fahrenheit). The old athletics stadium in which the match took place is not equipped with underground heating to tackle the frost and, unfortunately, local weather forecasters failed to predict the snowfall – so the teams went out to play on a snowy pitch, where it was difficult to see the markings on the field.

Source: Vladimir Fedorenko/RIA Novosti And though Spartak and the local club Tom were able to warm up with a bit of running around, the few thousand brave souls who came out to support them had to find a way to entertain themselves in the cold. At first the footballers started playing with a white ball, which was replaced after only a couple of minutes with a colored ball, since the original one proved quite difficult to see in the snowy conditions at the Trud stadium. “The Tomsk climate is harsh. Frost-resistant varieties of the soccer ball only ripen to a reddish color in September, and even then not for long and not every year,” tweeted (in Russian) the Russian commentator Vasily Utkin.

Spartak’s head coach is the Italian Massimo Carrera who, it seemed, did not notice the cold. He was seen walking around the technical area in a light coat without a hat. This was hardly news however: A week earlier in Moscow, when Spartak played their enemies CSKA, the teams had to play under similarly extreme conditions.

Многие даже подзабыли, что существует еще недавно один из главных ньюсмейкеров нашей планеты – премьер-министр Израиля Беньямин Нетаньяху. А ведь лет 5–10 назад без Израиля и Нетаньяху не обходилось ни одно более-менее значимое мировое событие. Тема Израиля звучала всегда и везде и на первых полосах. Израильская агрессивность, способность влезать в любые международные дела и ставить свои условия внезапно сошли на нет.
