EU flags alarm over US sanctions on Russia

Germany has already warned of possible retaliation if the United States moves to sanction German firms involved with building a new Baltic pipeline for Russian gas.

EU diplomats are concerned that a German-US row over the Nord Stream 2 pipeline being built by Russia’s state-owned Gazprom could complicate efforts in Brussels to forge an EU consensus on negotiating with Russia over the project.

The case against human drivers

 

Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk became the first non-franchise film to top the weekend box office this summer and the first since March of this year as it delivered over $50 million this weekend.

Christopher Nolan’s Wartime Epic
“Dunkirk” is a harrowing look at a barely averted British catastrophe.

‘Dunkirk’ is a good movie and one of the better ones this year in a time when there is almost nothing worth seeing. It is a movie. It is neither a war movie nor an epic. You never see the Germans. Spoiler alert: Tom Hardy spends the rest of the war in Hogan’s Heroes.

  1. get your puke bucket ready before you read this. won’t want to stain the carpet.

    “As we move to get off fossil fuels, we can … create a whole lot of stable, well-paying jobs in green sectors, in land and water remediation, and in the caring professions. … We could live in a country powered entirely by renewable energy, woven together by accessible public transit, in which the jobs and opportunities of this transition are designed to systematically eliminate racial and gender inequality. Caring for one another and caring for the planet could be the economy’s fastest-growing sectors. Many more people could have higher-wage jobs with fewer work hours, leaving us ample time to enjoy our loved ones and flourish in our communities.”

  2. yeah, baby boomers suck. i should know, i’m one of them. just a bunch of overly entitled fuck wads. i’d say…

  3. the only generation that i think sucks worse than the bb’s is that ww2 generation, my parents. they were the first to full on buy into corporatism and industrialism. the bb’s just followed in their footsteps. if i can somehow label a generation…

  4. the purse-seine
    robinson jeffers

    Our sardine fishermen work at night in the dark
    of the moon; daylight or moonlight
    They could not tell where to spread the net,
    unable to see the phosphorescence of the
    shoals of fish.
    They work northward from Monterey, coasting
    Santa Cruz; off New Year’s Point or off
    Pigeon Point
    The look-out man will see some lakes of milk-color
    light on the sea’s night-purple; he points,
    and the helmsman
    Turns the dark prow, the motorboat circles the
    gleaming shoal and drifts out her seine-net.
    They close the circle
    And purse the bottom of the net, then with great
    labor haul it in.

    I cannot tell you
    How beautiful the scene is, and a little terrible,
    then, when the crowded fish
    Know they are caught, and wildly beat from one wall
    to the other of their closing destiny the
    phosphorescent
    Water to a pool of flame, each beautiful slender body
    sheeted with flame, like a live rocket
    A comet’s tail wake of clear yellow flame; while outside
    the narrowing
    Floats and cordage of the net great sea-lions come up
    to watch, sighing in the dark; the vast walls
    of night
    Stand erect to the stars.

    Lately I was looking from a night mountain-top
    On a wide city, the colored splendor, galaxies of light:
    how could I help but recall the seine-net
    Gathering the luminous fish? I cannot tell you how
    beautiful the city appeared, and a little terrible.
    I thought, We have geared the machines and locked all together
    into inter-dependence; we have built the great cities; now
    There is no escape. We have gathered vast populations incapable
    of free survival, insulated
    From the strong earth, each person in himself helpless, on all
    dependent. The circle is closed, and the net
    Is being hauled in. They hardly feel the cords drawing, yet
    they shine already. The inevitable mass-disasters
    Will not come in our time nor in our children’s, but we
    and our children
    Must watch the net draw narrower, government take all
    powers–or revolution, and the new government
    Take more than all, add to kept bodies kept souls–or anarchy,
    the mass-disasters.
    These things are Progress;
    Do you marvel our verse is troubled or frowning, while it keeps
    its reason? Or it lets go, lets the mood flow
    In the manner of the recent young men into mere hysteria,
    splintered gleams, crackled laughter. But they are
    quite wrong.
    There is no reason for amazement: surely one always knew
    that cultures decay, and life’s end is death.

  5. that is a nice poem. so true, unfortunately. best to get out of the city, but you cannot escape death. might want to miss the horror, though, of witnessing the surprise and panic.
