Environment Agency chairman Philip Dilley resigns over job demands | Environment | The Guardian
Dilley quits weeks after coming under fire when it emerged he was on holiday in Barbados as floods hit northern England. [...] In a statement, Dilley said he was resigning in part because expectations of the role had expanded, to require him to be available at short notice throughout the year, which he found “inappropriate”. [ like Zero Hour Contract? ... We are all in this Together, right. ] He denied giving any untrue or misleading impression about his whereabouts during the floods, after the EA initially said he was at home with his family.

Ignoring watersheds, ignoring climate change: flooded by our ignorance | George Monbiot | Comment is free | The Guardian
Storm Desmond’s floods expose the utter madness of government policies, both in the hills and at the Paris talks. It’s as if it had come to remind us of what’s at stake.

COP21: UK under fire on climate policy - BBC News
Allegations of hypocrisy will be levelled at the UK when the Climate Secretary Amber Rudd appears at the Paris climate summit on Monday. [...] Most recently Mr Osborne scrapped a £1bn fund for a demonstration plant to capture CO2 from a power station and store it underground. It was a major pillar of UK climate policy. Craig Bennett from Friends of the Earth said: "The government is totally hypocritical on climate change. "George Osborne's anti-environmental policy decisions on energy fly the opposite way to the low-carbon route the vast majority of other countries are pursuing. // also hypocrisy to cut renewable's and investment (increase future energy price, see Steel industry; wholesale price 1/3 higher than Germany, in Germany steel companies did not close shop. They complained too. but did not close shop.) and on the other hand say only austerity will strengthen economy and a strong economy guarantees a strong NHS.

No mention of climate change in the TPP: Sierra Club report shows “dirty deal” means environmental disaster -
The Trans-Pacific Partnership will "fuel the climate crisis" warns the environmental organization in a new report [...] Environmental and labor organizations have warned for years that the TPP, which has been characterized as “NAFTA on steroids,” will mean disaster for the climate and for the economy. “A Dirty Deal: How the Trans-Pacific Partnership Threatens Our Climate,” the Sierra Club’s new report, details just how disastrous it could be. [...] The Sierra Club’s report finds that the TPP will do the following: “Empower fossil fuel corporations to challenge climate policies in private tribunals” [...] he deal will give foreign corporations the ability to sue governments for implementing environmental policies that do not meet companies’ “expectations” or that could make their investments less profitable.

Why the phrase ‘first world problem’ is condescending to everyone | Books | The Guardian
first world problem [...] To pre-emptively concede that my problem is just a first world one is to ostentatiously check my privilege before anyone else tells me to do so. At the same time, I remind myself and everyone in earshot that we are indeed living in the “first world”. So it is also a humblebrag. [...] For a start, it patronises those outside the “first world” by implying that hunger, disease and war are not only prevalent among the global poor but in some way the sole conditions of their lives. It implicitly characterises the less fortunate majority of the world’s population as saintly idiots who would never dream of complaining about anything more trivial. In the guise of right-on sympathy, we condescendingly picture others as living lives of homogeneous horror while rhetorically rendering them invisible as people, denying the individuality of everyone’s various joys and sorrows. [...] As is well known, we all compare ourselves to others close by, and feel bad if we are ...

The World’s Biggest Popstars are Walking Contradictions | NOISEY &! "However, what's most telling, is that Lorde has become a bit of an icon for the materialists that she set out to criticise. Kanye loves her; "Royals" soundtracked an advert for a $700 Samsung phone; she's collaborated with MAC cosmetics. It's this exact contradiction - I'm this and I'm also this - which is part of a wider social trend that's fucking around with the definition of authenticity and counter-culture. This stems from what, if you want to get academic about it, is called hyperreality - a phenomenon first observed in the eighties by French sociologist Jean Baudrillard. Shows like The Only Way is Essex are the pinnacle of hyperreality, where even though it clearly states that it's been scripted for your pleasure, the programme relies on the viewer buying into the idea of the characters being completely genuine. [...] we don't want to reject consumer culture at all. We want to buy into the idea of rejecting it. [...] We suck it up and go along with it.

BBC Sport - Athletics drug-testing report a wake-up call, says Wada boss
Only 1% of the athletes tested each year are found to be taking banned substances - the same percentage as in 1985 - and last year Wada set up a special working group to investigate why more cheats are not being detected. The group's damning report points out multiple failures including a lack of independence among national anti-doping organisations, and doping officers being offered bribes, being harassed and even threatened. It also said instead of Wada being recognised "as the leader in the fight against doping in sport and supported by the stakeholders, it is viewed as an irritant". [...] And Pound added there was evidence of "potential interference of the governments in the operations of national anti-doping organisations to make sure domestic athletes are not caught". ... >> money is missing in anti-doping. Posted Solution on Blog/email. All put money in one pot - distribute it through NADA's worldwide. Independence & Integrity has to be ensured.

Interview mit Snowdens russischem Anwalt Kutcherena - SPIEGEL ONLINE
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Haben die Amerikaner Kontakt zu Ihnen aufgenommen? Kutscherena: Die Botschaft hat mich angerufen, sie wollen ein Treffen. Was mich verwundert: Es gibt bis heute kein offizielles Auslieferungsgesuch von Seiten der USA. Ich wiederhole: Amerika hat kein Auslieferungsgesuch gestellt! Und Amerika hat nicht verlautbart, dass Snowdens Vorwürfe nicht stimmen. Snowden hat der Welt die Augen geöffnet. SPIEGEL ONLINE: Russland hat einen riesigen Geheimdienstapparat. Abgehörte Telefonate Oppositioneller tauchen schon mal in der Kreml-nahen Presse auf. Ist der demonstrative Einsatz für Snowden nicht scheinheilig? Kutscherena: Ich bin für Ehrlichkeit. Die Amerikaner predigen von der Kanzel, dass sie die Verfassung schützen. Der Mensch steht dort an erster Stelle, seine Rechte und Freiheiten sind unantastbar. Natürlich erlauben die Gesetze auch Spezialoperationen und Einschränkungen, etwa im Kampf gegen Terroristen. Aber doch nicht in solcher Masse!

Are Vocal Homophobes Really Just Homosexuals in the Closet? | Skeptikai
" our research suggests that some who oppose homosexuality do tacitly harbor same-sex attraction." [...] Is it possible that the link between vocal homophobia and homosexuality is the same as the link between the homophobic rhetoric and the porn consumption of a taboo population (e.g., racists searching for black people, homophobes searching for gay people)? I think it’s possible, but it’s very hard to say. Sexuality is a fundamentally natural part of one’s existence, whereas something like racism is totally environmentally learnt. Therefore, while one may feel guilty about hiding their sexuality, there may be no inherent reason to feel guilty about being a racist. But still, it’s something to consider.

Europe's bank stress tests as bad as 1979 Irish driving test - Telegraph
Take one of the more pertinent “stressed” assumptions the European authorities have used to test the 90 banks in the latest tests.Greek bonds are currently trading in the market at half their face value, yet the EBA seriously asks sophisticated investors to believe that they have properly tested the banks by applying a “haircut” of just 15pc to Greek debt.Or look at the €2.5bn (£2.2bn) of new capital the EBA says the eight banks that failed the tests will have to raise.Analysts at Credit Suisse, just three hours and 25 minutes after the EBA announced its results, have concluded that the actual amount needed would be more like €45bn and that 14 banks should have failed.

 honesty really is the best policy.

Rede zum Arabischen Frühling Viel Pathos, wenig Pläne
Klare Unterstützung für Reformer im Nahen Osten - aber eine allzu vage Agenda für eine neue US-Außenpolitik: Die arabische Welt wird US-Präsident Barack Obamas Grundsatzrede zur Kenntnis nehmen, Jubel dürfte sie kaum auslösen. Nicht zuletzt wegen der deutlichen Unterstützung für Israel.

Dieser Auftritt war von vornherein ein Risiko. Niemand zwischen Casablanca und Bagdad hatte darauf gewartet, dass Barack Obama eine Grundsatzrede zum Arabischen Frühling hält. Der US-Präsident hat sich trotzdem dafür entschieden - und erläuterte am Donnerstag seine Einschätzungen zu den Umwälzungen in der Region. Obama erklärte, warum diese ein "neues Kapitel" in der Geschichte der amerikanischen Diplomatie nötig machen.

Bundesbank-Hilfe bei lgeschft: Das Rtsel um dendeutschen Iran-Deal - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Politik
Berlin - Das umstrittene Engagement der Bundesbank bei einem Ölgeschäft zwischen Iran und Indien hat womöglich eine größere politische Brisanz als bisher bekannt. Wie es in Regierungskreisen in Berlin heißt, soll der Deal im Zusammenhang mit der Freilassung zweier Reporter der "Bild am Sonntag" aus iranischer Haft im Februar dieses Jahres stehen. Demnach soll die Bundesregierung die Hilfe der deutschen Zentralbank bei der iranisch-indischen Transaktion im Gegenzug für die Freilassung der beiden Deutschen gebilligt haben.

Japan Crisis Isn't Yet Grasped by the Markets -
Such “what if” scripts are the stuff of modern Wall Street. Everyone runs them. Entire schools of financial analysis are devoted to examining historical market patterns in the belief that those patterns can predict the future.
Such analysis, of course, depends on — and perhaps even encourages — our belief that tomorrow will be much like today. And all that despite the fine-print caveat on your 401(k) statement that reads, “Past performance is no guarantee of future success.”

 we rely on history for guidance - and that is a fallacy 

Big economic questions remain unanswered.

Former Goldmanite And Head Of New York Fed Bill Dudley: "Let Them Eat iPad" | zero hedge
So, Dudley sought an everyday example of a price that is falling.
"Today you can buy an iPad 2 that costs the same as an iPad 1 that is twice as powerful," he said referring to Apple Inc's (AAPL.O) latest handheld tablet computer hitting stories on Friday.
"You have to look at the prices of all things," he said.
This prompted guffaws and widespread murmuring from the audience, with one audience member calling the comment "tone deaf."

Blaming Rubin | Analysis & Opinion |
When he was in the Clinton administration, Rubin thought that absent a crisis, it would be politically impossible to pass new rules because of the intensity of the opposition from his former colleagues on Wall Street. He also faced disagreement from Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan, who believed that markets were essentially self-regulating, and some skepticism from his own deputy at Treasury, Larry Summers. Rubin goes into this at length in his book, noting that Summers later ridiculed the kind of comprehensive margin requirements Rubin favored as “playing tennis with wooden rackets.” The three did agree, however, that a legally ambiguous effort by the Commodity Futures Trading Corp., then led by Brooksley Born, to regulate over-the-counter derivatives could have created dangerous market uncertainty.

The psychology of power: Absolutely | The Economist
However, an intriguing characteristic emerged among participants in high-power states who felt they did not deserve their elevated positions. These people showed a similar tendency to that found in low-power individuals—to be harsh on themselves and less harsh on others—but the effect was considerably more dramatic. They felt that others warranted a lenient 6.0 on the morality scale when stealing a bike but assigned a highly immoral 3.9 if they took it themselves. Dr Lammers and Dr Galinsky call this reversal “hypercrisy”.
