Today’s Holiday: Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde National Heroes’ Day


Today’s Holiday:
Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde National Heroes’ Day

Citizens of Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde have great reverence for Amílcar Cabral (1921–1973), a nationalist leader who was assassinated before he could see his native Guinea-Bissau and nearby Cape Verde achieve independence from Portugal. The two countries settled on January 20 as their National Heroes’ Day because it falls on the anniversary of Cabral’s murder. A public holiday, National Heroes’ Day commemorates the legacies of Cabral and other freedom fighters. Leftist associations have observed the day by holding symposiums on the writings and political theories of Cabral. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Today’s Birthday: Allan Haines Lockheed (1889)


Today’s Birthday:
Allan Haines Lockheed (1889)

Though Malcolm and Allan Loughead attended only elementary school, the mechanically gifted brothers built their first airplane in 1913. Malcolm soon left the industry, but Allan persisted. Though several of his aircraft companies failed, his name—with the spelling changed to Lockheed—would eventually be connected to one of the world’s largest aerospace manufacturers. Who once turned down a flight in Lockheed’s first plane by saying he would not fly in any plane “for all the money in California”?

This Day in History: Nazi Officials Decide on “The Final Solution” (1942)


This Day in History:
Nazi Officials Decide on “The Final Solution” (1942)

In early 1942, Nazi officials held a conference at Lake Wannsee in Berlin to discuss what “final solution” would be used to eliminate the Jewish population of Europe. On paper, the plan called for gathering Jews into camps for deportation to work details in the East. The official record of the meeting does not mention killing but notes that the “evacuation” was to happen as soon as possible. Who later admitted that the actual conversation at the meeting differed significantly from the record? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

LYRICS
The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless skies
The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command my love
And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last till the end of time my love
The first time ever I saw your face
Your face, your face

I’ll Never Fall in Love Again

Dionne Warwick

LYRICS

What do you get when you fall in love?
A guy with a pin to burst your bubble
That’s what you get for all your trouble
I’ll never fall in love again
I’ll never fall in love again

What do you get when you kiss a guy?
You get enough germs to catch pneumonia
After you do, he’ll never phone ya
I’ll never fall in love again
Dontcha know that I’ll never fall in love again?

Don’t tell me what it’s all about
‘Cause I’ve been there and I’m glad I’m out
Out of those chains, those chains that bind you
That is why I’m here to remind you

What do you get when you fall in love?
You only get lies and pain and sorrow
So far at least until tomorrow
I’ll never fall in love again
No, no, I’ll never fall in love again

Ahh, out of those chains, those chains that bind you
That is why I’m here to remind you

What do you get when you fall in love?
You only get lies and pain and sorrow
So far at least until tomorrow
I’ll never fall in love again
Dontcha know that I’ll never fall in love again
I’ll never fall in love again

The appointment of Romania’s first female prime minister has proved a controversial process.

[Romania’s PM designate] only knows to say yes and that’s how things will be from now on.

Stelian Tanase
Political commentator
President Klaus Iohannis named Viorica Dancila as his choice to lead the government yesterday.

Parliament, dominated by Dancila’s Social Democratic party, is expected to offer a full endorsement.

A different reaction could be seen on social media. President Iohannis lost more than 3,000 fans on his Facebook page after making the announcement as government critics expressed their disappointment that he had not chosen someone from the opposition.

Political pundits say that there was little Klaus Iohannis could do, considering that the ruling coalition headed by the Social Democrats holds an absolute majority in the Parliament.

Dancila will become third head of the government since the Social Democrats won elections at the end of 2016. Both her predecessors, Sorin Grideanu and Mihai Tudose both clashed with the PSD president, Liviu Dragnea, and were ousted amid internal power struggles

But Dancila, regarded as aDragnea loyalist, is expected to follow the party president’s lead and avoid her predecessors’ fates.

“She only knows to say yes and that’s how things will be from now on,” commented political commentator Stelian Tanase on his blog. “There will be no personal opinions. She’ll do what she’s told by party leader.”

A two-term member of the European Parliament, Dancila made little mark during her stint. Vote Watch Europe ranks her 700th out of 751 MEPs in terms of session attendance.

In an interview for the Parliament Magazine, as noted by Politico, she managed to duck five questions about her inspirations and achievements, failing to name a book she has read, a model for her career, or a surprising accomplishment.

In another interview posted by the Digi 24 channel, Dancila refereed to Iran and Pakistan as EU member states.

Answering a question about women’s rights posed in English in her native Romanian, Dancila concludes “Of course we will not try to interfere in the internal affairs of a member state such as Pakistan or Iran.”

Dancila, 55, is from the same county as PSD leader Dragnea. She worked as a teacher at the local high school and then as an engineer at an oil and gas group before joining the European Parliament.

The first popular reaction to her appointment will be seen on Saturday when a now regular assembly of anti-government protestors is due to reconvene.

This is so one-sided it’s frightening . One might be left to wonder how PSD got such a massive chunk of the votes in the first place, but I guess we’ll never know. Maybe at most we can blame it on the ‘uneducated’ half of the population. That will probably help. I guess reporting and journalism really are dying.
