Siemens (dpa)

Siemens-Chef Joe Kaeser hat sich beunruhigt über die Eskalation der Ukraine-Krise geäußert und angekündigt, dass sich sein Konzern strikt an alle verhängten Sanktionen gegen Russland halten wird.
«Das Primat der Politik gilt. Wir halten uns daran, und wir werden auch sehr konsequent diese Dinge umsetzen», sagte Kaeser am Samstag bei einem Besuch der CSU-Vorstandsklausur im oberbayerischen Kloster Andechs. Er betonte aber, dass er weiter daran glaube, dass eine Verständigung mittels Dialogs die Methode der Wahl sei.
«Wir sind natürlich auch besorgt über die Entwicklung, die sich ja leider nochmal deutlich verschärft hat», sagte Kaeser. «Und wir werden auch sehr sorgfältig die Entwicklungen bewerten und dann die Dinge abstimmen, die in unserem Ermessen liegen.»
Siemens ist traditionell stark engagiert in Russland und kommt dort auf einen Jahresumsatz von zuletzt rund 2 Milliarden Euro. Rund 3000 Beschäftigte sind in Russland für den Elektrokonzern tätig.
Kaeser betonte, er habe bei seinem Besuch beim russischen Präsidenten Wladimir Putin vor einigen Wochen «deutlich gemacht, dass wir den Dialog bevorzugen, dass eine Eskalation problematisch ist für alles, dass wir zwar zu unseren Verpflichtungen stehen wollen, aber dass wir auch die ersten sein werden im Lande, die das politische Primat auch respektieren» und mögliche Sanktionen umsetzen.
Kaeser war zugleich bemüht, Irritationen auszuräumen, die er damals mit einem ZDF-Interview ausgelöst hatte - da hatte er mit Blick auf die Krim-Krise von «kurzfristigen Turbulenzen» gesprochen. «Ich hatte damals von diesen Turbulenzen gesprochen im Zusammenhang mit der 160-jährigen Geschichte und im Zusammenhang damit, dass wir zwei Weltkriege auch mit diesen Beziehungen überstanden haben. Das muss man auch immer ins Verhältnis setzen», sagte der Siemens-Chef, räumte aber ein: «Natürlich ist der Begriff, wenn er aus dem Zusammenhang gerissen ist, nicht zutreffend. Das war vollkommen klar.»
Über mögliche Auswirkungen der Sanktionen auf seinen Konzern wollte Kaeser «nicht bewerten, bevor die Dinge nicht klar sind».

Anzac Day

Anzac Day /ˈænzæk/[1] is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served."[2][3] Originally 25 April every year was to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Anzac Day is also observed in the Cook Islands, Niue, Pitcairn Islands, and Tonga[citation needed]. It is no longer observed as a national holiday in Papua New Guinea or Samoa.[4][5]


History

An Australian veteran on Anzac Day.
Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first campaign that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. The acronym ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, whose soldiers were known as Anzacs. Anzac Day remains one of the most important national occasions of both Australia and New Zealand,[6] a rare instance of two sovereign countries not only sharing the same remembrance day, but making reference to both countries in its name. When war broke out in 1914, Australia and New Zealand had been dominions of the British Empire for thirteen and seven years respectively.

Gallipoli campaign


In 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of an Allied expedition that set out to capture the Gallipoli Peninsula to open the way to the Black Sea for the Allied navies. The objective was to capture Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire, which was an ally of Germany during the war. The ANZAC force landed at Gallipoli on 25 April, meeting fierce resistance from the Ottoman Army commanded by Mustafa Kemal (later known as Atatürk). What had been planned as a bold strike to knock the Ottomans out of the war quickly became a stalemate, and the campaign dragged on for eight months. At the end of 1915, the Allied forces were evacuated after both sides had suffered heavy casualties and endured great hardships. The Allied casualties included 21,255 from the United Kingdom, an estimated 10,000 dead soldiers from France, 8,709 from Australia, 2,721 from New Zealand, and 1,358 from British India. News of the landing at Gallipoli made a profound impact on Australians and New Zealanders at home and 25 April quickly became the day on which they remembered the sacrifice of those who had died in the war.

Though the Gallipoli campaign failed to achieve its military objectives of capturing Constantinople and knocking the Ottoman Empire out of the war, the actions of the Australian and New Zealand troops during the campaign bequeathed an intangible but powerful legacy. The creation of what became known as an "Anzac legend" became an important part of the national identity in both countries. This has shaped the way their citizens have viewed both their past and their understanding of the present.


Foundations of Anzac Day

On 30 April 1915, when the first news of the landing reached New Zealand, a half-day holiday was declared and impromptu services were held.[7]

In South Australia, Eight Hour Day, 13 October 1915 was renamed "Anzac Day" and a carnival was organised to raise money for the Wounded Soldiers Fund.[8]

The date 25 April was officially named Anzac Day in 1916; in that year it was marked by a wide variety of ceremonies and services in Australia and New Zealand, including a commemorative march through London involving Australian and New Zealand troops. In New Zealand it was gazetted as a half-day holiday.[7] Australian Great War battalion and brigade war diaries show that on this first anniversary, units including those on the front line, made efforts to solemnise the memory of those who were killed this day twelve months previously. A common format found in the war diaries by Australian and New Zealand soldiers for the day commenced with a dawn requiem mass, followed mid-morning with a commemorative service, and after lunch organised sports activities with the proceeds of any gambling going to Battalion funds. This occurred in Egypt as well.

In London, over 2,000 Australian and New Zealand troops marched through the streets of the city. A London newspaper headline dubbed them "The Knights of Gallipoli". Marches were held all over Australia in 1916; wounded soldiers from Gallipoli attended the Sydney march in convoys of cars, accompanied by nurses. Over 2,000 people attended the service in Rotorua.[7] For the remaining years of the war, Anzac Day was used as an occasion for patriotic rallies and recruiting campaigns, and marches of serving members of the AIF were held in most cities. From 1916 onwards, in both Australia and New Zealand, Anzac memorials were held on or about 25 April, mainly organised by returned servicemen and school children in cooperation with local authorities.


Anzac Day was gazetted as a public holiday in New Zealand in 1920, through the Anzac Day Act, after lobbying by the New Zealand Returned Soldiers’ Association,[9] the RSA.[10] In Australia at the 1921 State Premiers' Conference, it was decided that Anzac Day would be observed on 25 April each year. However, it was not observed uniformly in all the states.

During the 1920s, Anzac Day became established as a National Day of Commemoration for the 60,000 Australians and 18,000 New Zealanders who died during the war. The first year in which all the Australian states observed some form of public holiday together on Anzac Day was 1927. By the mid-1930s, all the rituals now associated with the day—dawn vigils, marches, memorial services, reunions, sly two-up games—became part of Australian Anzac Day culture. New Zealand commemorations also adopted many of these rituals, with the dawn service being introduced from Australia in 1939.[10]


Anzac Day since World War II

With the coming of the Second World War, Anzac Day became a day on which to commemorate the lives of Australians and New Zealanders lost in that war as well and in subsequent years. The meaning of the day has been further broadened to include those killed in all the military operations in which the countries have been involved.

Anzac Day was first commemorated at the Australian War Memorial in 1942, but, due to government orders preventing large public gatherings in case of Japanese air attack, it was a small affair and was neither a march nor a memorial service. Anzac Day has been annually commemorated at the Australian War Memorial ever since.[6]


In New Zealand, Anzac Day saw a surge in popularity immediately after World War II. However this was short-lived, and by the 1950s many New Zealanders had become antagonistic or indifferent towards the day. Much of this was linked to the legal ban on commerce on Anzac Day, and the banning by many local authorities of sports events and other entertainment on the day. Annoyance was particularly pronounced in 1953 and 1959, when Anzac Day fell on a Saturday. There was widespread public debate on the issue, with some people calling for the public holiday to be moved to the nearest Sunday or abolished altogether. In 1966 a new Anzac Day Act was passed, allowing sport and entertainment in the afternoon.[11]

From the 1960s, but especially in the 1970s and 1980s, Anzac Day became increasingly controversial in both Australia and New Zealand. Protests against the Vietnam War were common Anzac Day occurrences during the 1960s and 1970s.[12][13] In 1967, two members of the left-wing Progressive Youth Movement in Christchurch staged a minor protest at the Anzac Day ceremony, laying a wreath protesting against the Vietnam War. They were subsequently convicted of disorderly conduct. In 1978, a women's group laid a wreath dedicated to all the women raped and killed during war, and movements for feminism, gay rights, and peace used the occasion to draw attention to their respective causes at various times during the 1980s.[14] In the 1980s, Australian feminists used the annual Anzac Day march to protest against rape and violence in war and were banned from marching.[15][16]

From about the late 1980s, however, there was an international resurgence of interest in World War I and its commemorations. Anzac Day attendances rose in Australia and New Zealand, with young people taking a particular interest. Protests and controversy became much rarer.

Until 1981 Papua New Guinea commemorated its war dead on Anzac Day; however, since then Remembrance Day has been observed on 23 July, the date of the first action of the Papuan Infantry Battalion against the Japanese at Awala in 1942 during the Kokoda Track campaign.[17]

Revival

Following Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War, interest in Anzac Day reached its lowest point. On 26 April 1975, The Australian newspaper covered the passing of Anzac Day in a single story.[18] However, in recent years Anzac Day has drawn record crowds,[19] with an increasing number of those attending being young Australians,[20][21] many of whom attend ceremonies swathed in Australian flags, wearing green and gold T-shirts and beanies and with Australian flag tattoos imprinted on their skin.[22][23][24][25] This phenomenon has been perceived by some as a reflection of the desire of younger generations of Australians to honour the sacrifices made by the previous generations.[26]


Australians and New Zealanders recognise 25 April as a ceremonial occasion to reflect on the cost of war and to remember those who fought and lost their lives for their country. Commemorative services and marches are held at dawn, the time of the original landing, mainly at war memorials in cities and towns across both nations and the sites of some of Australia and New Zealand's more-recognised battles and greatest losses, such as Villers-Bretonneux in France[27] and Gallipoli in Turkey.[28]

One of the traditions of Anzac Day is the 'gunfire breakfast' (coffee with rum added) which occurs shortly after many dawn ceremonies, and recalls the 'breakfast' taken by many soldiers before facing battle. Later in the day, ex-servicemen and ex-servicewomen meet and join in marches through the major cities and many smaller centres.



Dawn service


Poppies, a symbol of remembrance

After the First World War, returned soldiers sought the comradeship they felt in those quiet, peaceful moments before dawn. With symbolic links to the dawn landing at Gallipoli, a dawn stand-to or dawn ceremony became a common form of Anzac Day remembrance during the 1920s.

The first official dawn service was held at the Sydney Cenotaph in 1927. Dawn services were originally very simple and followed the operational ritual; in many cases they were restricted to veterans only. The daytime ceremony was for families and other well-wishers and the dawn service was for returned soldiers to remember and reflect among the comrades with whom they shared a special bond.

Before dawn the gathered veterans would be ordered to "stand-to" and two minutes of silence would follow. At the start of this time a lone bugler would play the Last Post and then concluded the service with Reveille. In more recent times the families and young people have been encouraged to take part in dawn services, and services in Australian capital cities have seen some of the largest turnouts ever. Reflecting this change, the ceremonies have become more elaborate, incorporating hymns, readings, pipers and rifle volleys. Others, though, have retained the simple format of the dawn stand-to, familiar to so many soldiers.

Typical modern dawn services follow a pattern that is now familiar to generations of Australians, containing the following features: introduction, hymn, prayer, an address, laying of wreaths, recitation, the playing of the Last Post, a minute of silence, Reveille, and the playing of both the New Zealand and Australian national anthems. At the Australian War Memorial, following events such as the Anzac Day and Remembrance Day services, families often place artificial red poppies beside the names of relatives on the Memorial's Roll of Honour. In Australia, sprigs of rosemary are often worn on lapels[29] and in New Zealand poppies have taken on this role.[30]


Commemoration


In Australia and New Zealand, Anzac Day commemoration features solemn "Dawn Services" or "Dawn Marches", a tradition started in Albany, Western Australia on 25 April 1923 and now held at war memorials around both countries, accompanied by thoughts of those lost at war to the ceremonial sounds of the Last Post on the bugle. The fourth stanza of Laurence Binyon's poem For the Fallen (known as the "Ode of Remembrance", or simply as "the Ode") is often recited.

Australia

Anzac Day is a national public holiday and is considered by many Australians to be one of the most solemn days of the year. Marches by veterans from all past wars, as well as current serving members of the Australian Defence Force and Reserves, with allied veterans as well as the Australian Defence Force Cadets and Australian Air League and supported by members of Scouts Australia, Guides Australia, and other uniformed service groups, are held in cities and towns nationwide. The Anzac Day March from each state capital is televised live with commentary. These events are generally followed by social gatherings of veterans, hosted either in a public house or in an RSL club, often including a traditional Australian gambling game called two-up, which was an extremely popular pastime with ANZAC soldiers. In most Australian states and territories, gambling is forbidden outside of licensed venues. However, due to the significance of this tradition, two-up is legal only on Anzac Day.

Despite federation being proclaimed in Australia in 1901, it is argued that the "national identity" of Australia was largely forged during the violent conflict of World War I,[31][22] and the most iconic event in the war for most Australians was the landing at Gallipoli. Dr. Paul Skrebels of the University of South Australia has noted that Anzac Day has continued to grow in popularity;[32] even the threat of a terrorist attack at the Gallipoli site in 2004[33] did not deter some 15,000 Australians from making the pilgrimage to Turkey to commemorate the fallen ANZAC troops.[34]

Although commemoration events are always held on 25 April, most states and territories currently observe a substitute public holiday on the following Monday when Anzac Day falls on a Sunday. When Anzac Day falls on Easter Monday, such as in 2011, the Easter Monday holiday is transferred to Tuesday.[35] This followed a 2008 meeting of the Council for the Australian Federation in which the states and territories made an in principle agreement to work towards making this a universal practice.[36] However in 2009, the Legislative Council of Tasmania rejected a bill amendment that would have enabled the substitute holiday in that state.[37]

New Zealand

New Zealand's Commemoration of Anzac Day[48] is similar. The number of New Zealanders attending Anzac Day events in New Zealand, and at Gallipoli, is increasing. For some, the day adds weight to the idea that war is futile.[49]

Dawn Marches and other memorials nationwide are typically attended by the New Zealand Defence Force, the New Zealand Cadet Forces, members of the New Zealand Police, New Zealand Fire Service, Order of St John Ambulance Service (Youth and Adult Volunteers) as well as Scouting New Zealand, GirlGuiding New Zealand and other uniformed community service groups including in most places the local Pipe Band to lead or accompany the March, and sometimes a Brass Band to accompany the hymns.

Anzac Day now promotes a sense of unity, perhaps more effectively than any other day on the national calendar. People whose politics, beliefs and aspirations are widely different can nevertheless share a genuine sorrow at the loss of so many lives in war.

Paper poppies are widely distributed by the Returned Services Association and worn as symbols of remembrance. This tradition follows that of the wearing of poppies on Remembrance Sunday in other Commonwealth countries.[50]

The day is a public holiday in New Zealand. Shops are prohibited from opening before 1 pm as per the Anzac Day Act 1966. A prior Act passed in 1949 prevented the holiday from being "Mondayised" (moved to the 26th or 27th should the 25th fall on a weekend),[51] although this drew criticism from trade unionists and Labour Party politicians.[52] In 2013 a bill was passed to Mondayise Anzac Day, the Labour Party getting enough votes from other parties, despite Government opposition.[53] Waitangi Day was Mondayised in the same bill.

Turkey

In Turkey the name "ANZAC Cove" was officially recognised by the Turkish government on Anzac Day in 1985. In 1934, Kemal Atatürk delivered the following words to the first Australians, New Zealanders and British to visit the Gallipoli battlefields. This was later inscribed on a monolith at Ari Burnu Cemetery (ANZAC Beach) which was unveiled in 1985. The words also appear on the Kemal Atatürk Memorial, Canberra, and the Atatürk Memorial in Wellington:[54]
"Those heroes that shed their blood
And lost their lives.
You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country.
Therefore rest in peace.
There is no difference between the Johnnies
And the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side
Here in this country of ours.
You, the mothers,
Who sent their sons from far away countries
Wipe away your tears,
Your sons are now lying in our bosom
And are in peace
After having lost their lives on this land they have
Become our sons as well."[55]
In 1990, to mark the 75th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing, Government officials from Australia and New Zealand (including Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke[56][57] and New Zealand Governor-General Paul Reeves[58]) as well as most of the last surviving Gallipoli veterans, and many Australian and New Zealand tourists travelled to Turkey for a special Dawn Service at Gallipoli. The Gallipoli Dawn Service was held at the Ari Burnu War Cemetery at Anzac Cove, but the growing numbers of people attending resulted in the construction of a more spacious site on North Beach, known as the "Anzac Commemorative Site" in time for the year 2000 service.

A ballot will be held to allocate passes for Australians and New Zealanders wishing to attend Anzac Day commemorations at Gallipoli in 2015. Of the 10,500 people that can be safely, securely and comfortably accommodated at the Anzac Commemorative Site, in 2015 this will comprise places for: 8000 Australians, 2000 New Zealanders and 500 official representatives of all nations involved in the Gallipoli campaign. The ballot is open from 1 November 2013 - 31 January 2014. Australians can apply at www.gallipoli2015.dva.gov.au [2] New Zealanders can apply at www.gallipoli2015.govt.nz [3] Eligibility requirements apply for all places.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by Zach Johnson

The royal tour has come to an end.

Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince George capped off their 19-day visit Friday. Before leaving, however, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge made a surprise 5 a.m. appearance at a ceremony commemorating ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Day, a special day of remembrance.

"Very early on the Palace advised us that it was likely that the Duke would attend the Dawn Service and we were advised a few days ago that the couple would both attend," the memorial's director, Dr. Brendan Nelson, told local press. "I thanked them both very much for attending and I said to them this means a lot to us, it means a lot to our country and it means a lot to our veterans. Suffice to say they were very, very committed to be here and found the service very meaningful."

Later that day, the royal couple visited the Australian War Memorial in the nation's capital. While there, they planted a Lone Pine tree in the memorial garden to honor the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought in Gallipoli 99 years ago. They also laid a wreath, which featured a handwritten note from William: "Never forget those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom."

The Cambridges then joined Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove, Prime Minister Tony Abbott and the leader of the opposition Bill Shorten to check out the Tomb of the Unknown Australian Soldier.

Middleton's bouquet, which featured rosemary and Kangaroo Paw flowers, contained a handwritten note that read: "In every second of every day, you will be remembered for your courage and your bravery. Thank you for your sacrifice and for what you have done for us. For that, I am truly grateful."

The Duchess, 32, modeled an indigo and white tweed Michael Kors coatdress, which she paired with a Jonathan Howard hat, a Russell and Bromley clutch, a Cartier watch and an Asprey charm pendant.

Not long after, the royal family boarded a plane at Fairbairne Airbase in Canberra, Australia. Before taking flight, however, the Duke and Duchess waved goodbye to their admirers as their 9-month-old son—looking cute as a button in a red cardigan and striped shorts—made funny faces at the crowd.

"The tour of New Zealand and Australia has been an incredible experience for both The Duke and Duchess and the couple really have enjoyed it immensely," a Kensington Palace spokesperson tells E! News in a statement. "We always said this would be an opportunity for the Duke to introduce both countries to the Duchess and Prince George and the couple have been bowled over by the extraordinarily warm welcome shown to them as a family by people everywhere they went."

Drive My Car /What You're Doing/The Word




Asked a girl what she wanted to be
She said baby, can't you see
I wanna be famous, a star on the screen
But you can do something in between

Baby you can drive my car
Yes I'm gonna be a star
Baby you can drive my car
And maybe I'll love you



Look what you're doing, I'm feeling blue and lonely,
Would it be too much to ask of you,
What you're doing to me?

You got me running and there's no fun in it,
Why should it be so much to ask of you,
What you're doing to me?



It's so fine, It's sunshine
It's the word, love

Mr. Dominique Alderweireld (AFP)

Dominique Alderweireld, alias "Dodo la Saumure", mis en examen dans l'affaire de prostitution dite du Carlton de Lille, a annoncé jeudi l'ouverture d'une nouvelle "maison de plaisir" en Belgique, baptisée le "DSK". L'ouverture du DSK, "Dodo Sex Klub, en flamand", aura lieu mercredi soir à Blaton, près de la frontière française, "pas loin de Valenciennes et de la sortie d'autoroute", a-t-il déclaré à l'AFP.

"C'est un clin d'oeil et ça m'apporte de la publicité. Commercialement, c'est excellent, c'est fabuleux parce que tout le monde en parle, de DSK (Dominique Strauss-Kahn, NDLR)", a souligné sur le ton de la plaisanterie M. Alderweireld, qui compte ouvrir prochainement un sixième établissement en Belgique, le "Carlton Club". Le "DSK", qui emploiera "sept filles dont un transsexuel", est "une maison de plaisir qui comptera une table dance et des chambres", a-t-il ajouté.

Renvoyé en correctionnelle aux côtés de 13 autres prévenus dans le dossier du Carlton, "Dodo la Saumure", Français de 64 ans, a toujours nié avoir fourni des prostituées à l'ancien patron du FMI Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

Kate Upton by Brett Malec

Earlier this week, Kate Upton opened up to E! News about her super-sexy bikini scene in her new film The Other Woman, telling us her body could have looked better.

And now, the 21-year-old Sports Illustrated supermodel is revealing she wasn't a hundred percent comfortable frolicking around in a skimpy two-piece for the movie cameras (seriously!).

"This was my first movie role and these two supported me every step of the way," Upton said during a visit to GMA yesterday with costars Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann. "They made me feel so safe from day one. They encouraged me to mess up and try new things and they were amazing examples."

"She's fearless," Diaz added. "I mean she really went for it."

Upton went on, "It was funny because when we were filming that scene, whenever you go to a beach, everyone's wearing bikinis, so it's just pretty normal. It's part of life. But when you're filming a bikini scene, nobody's wearing a bikini, it's only you and 60 crewmembers. And these two saw that I was feeling a little uncomfortable, because anyone's uncomfortable when that many people are staring at you."

"I've never had support like that before and it was just so amazing that I got that on my first film experience," the blond beauty added.

Hard to believe a star as hot as Upton would feel insecure in a bikini!

Upton recently talked to E! about that already infamous bikini scene and admitted she wasn't in her tip-top shape. "Of course, I always try to live a healthy lifestyle, but that was my birthday week," she said. "So that was the least healthy I've ever been. I just turned 21...Cameron, Leslie and I were just living it up that week."

"She's fearless," Diaz added. "I mean she really went for it."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by Zach Johnson

The royal tour is almost over!

On Thursday, the eighteenth day of their trip Down Under, Prince William and Kate Middleton traveled to Canberra, Australia. Their first stop was at the National Arboretum, where the perfect pair planted an English oak tree. Middleton, 32, wore an emerald green Catherine Walker coatdress and paired the look with her favorite L.K. Bennett nude pumps. After the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took turns shoveling dirt, two young boys poured water over the base using bright red watering cans.

The royals signed the guestbook and met with groups of local children and their parents. The Duke and Duchess left 9-month-old Prince George at home in the care of his nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo. The couple—who will soon celebrate their third wedding anniversary—played with several kids, and Middleton accepted gifts for George, saying that his cot will be "full of little teddy bears."

The Brits then visited Parliament House and greeted fans on their way to the Great Hall. While there, Prime Minister Tony Abbott hosted a reception in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's honor.

William, 31, then delivered a speech that roused the Australian audience. "When Catherine and I arrived in Sydney last week, I said how much we had been looking forward to this visit. Drawing on my own experience, I told Catherine that it would be wonderful, and so it has been. Anticipation has become deep admiration. There is so much to admire about Australia," he said. "Catherine and I acknowledge the timeless values of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. They have been the custodians of this ancient and majestic continent for thousands of years. The Traditional Owners' stories, and the magnificent and moving rock art at Uluru, which we saw for ourselves, are a priceless inheritance. They tell us not just about the past but provide a precious vision for the future."

"Catherine and I had the privilege earlier this week of visiting Sydney's Taronga Zoo, which is committed—through conservation—to just such custodianship," he continued. "And I know, too, how important Australian support has been for the global consortium, United for Wildlife, which is fighting the scourge of the illegal trade in wildlife, and poaching, something very close to my heart."

"Australia has a quality of life and a level of excellence that makes it a magnet: an enormously attractive place to live, trade, invest, and indeed just visit. The arts and sciences flourish; Australian sporting success is legendary; agriculture—from the traditional to the technologically most advanced—is hugely successful. This is a country that is in the front rank internationally," he said. "We have both seen all this for ourselves. Australia may be known as 'the Lucky Country,' but often the harder you work, the luckier you get. Australians make their own luck. The distinct Aussie formula that has fashioned such a dynamic society is the source of admiration and envy around the world."

"What Australia has achieved goes much wider than Australia itself. The last 30 years have seen the rise of the Asia-Pacific region. In a short time, it has become an economic powerhouse with huge consequences for the whole world order," he said. "The Asia-Pacific region is now a key actor—sometimes the key actor—in confronting many of the global challenges of the twenty first century. It is enormously important—and reassuring—that Australia is at the heart not just of its own success but of the wider regional story, too. Australia is a champion of justice and economic and political freedoms. Australia plays an invaluable role in building an open and peaceful Asia-Pacific for the benefit of all."

"Over the years, Australians have fought bravely for freedom in numerous conflicts. As those who were involved pass on, succeeding generations must remember and keep vivid the sacrifice they made. Catherine and I look forward to paying tribute to them at tomorrow's ANZAC Day commemoration; and with my brother [Prince Harry], to taking part in next year's Gallipoli centenary."


"Reluctantly, Catherine, George and I leave Australia tomorrow. Thank you for the warmth and generosity that has been shown to us during our visit. We go away with wonderful memories, and George goes away with his cuddly wombat, which he has taken to chewing so lovingly. We greatly look forward to coming back. And when we do return, it will be to marvel again at all that Australia is, and will yet become."

The audience applauded before turning their attention to a man playing traditional music on a guitar.

The royal couple then visited the National Portrait Gallery. Their visit to the art museum undoubtedly resonated with Middleton, who is a patron of the gallery's equivalent in London. The royals viewed an exhibition and met with some of the portrait's subjects, all of whom are well-known Australians.

That evening, Governor-General Peter Cosgrove hosted a reception at his residence, located in the suburb of Yarralumla. Middleton modeled a white Lela Rose dress and got an up-do for the occasion.

Natalia Vodianova (Bang Showbiz)

Natalia Vodianova wurde in der Schule wegen ihres Aussehens gehänselt.
Heute ist das russische Fotomodel eines der gefragtesten Gesichter in der Modeindustrie. Sie hat bereits in Kampagnen von Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Yves Saint Laurent oder Etam gemodelt, seitdem sie mit 17 Jahren entdeckt wurde. Als Kind hatte es die heute 32-Jährige allerdings nicht leicht. Sie verrät im Interview mit der französischen 'ELLE': "Die Kinder in meiner Klasse mochten mich nicht wirklich, da half auch mein exzentrischer Kleidungsstil nicht! Ich bin mit einer stark autistischen Schwester aufgewachsen. Ich habe nie jemanden zu mir nach Hause eingeladen, ich war sehr ernst. Manchmal habe ich die Schule geschwänzt, um mit meiner Mutter auf dem Markt Gemüse zu verkaufen."

Weiter berichtet das Model: "Ich war nicht hübsch, ich war dünn und sehr groß. Es ist das alte Klischee von dem hässlichen Entlein, aber es ist wahr! Mein Leben war nicht einfach. Aber tief in mir drin wusste ich, dass etwas passieren würde und alles gut werden würde." Nachdem sie eine großartige Modelkarriere hinlegte, entschied die Schönheit 2004 sich aus dem Business zurückzuziehen und hat seitdem ihre Charity-Organisation 'Naked Heart Foundation' ins Leben gerufen. Sie sagt, sie brauche mehr in ihrem Leben als Mode, um sich erfüllt zu fühlen.

Jodie Foster (AFP)

La oscarizada actriz estadounidense Jodie Foster contrajo matrimonio con la fotógrafa Alexandra Hedison el pasado fin de semana, confirmó este miércoles a la AFP la representante de la intérprete.
"Sí, puedo confirmar" que Foster y Hedison se casaron, afirmó Jennifer Allen, agente de la actriz, que no ofreció detalles sobre la ceremonia.
La actriz, de 51 años, y Hedison comenzaron a salir hace casi un año, según la revista estadounidense People.
La fotógrafa mantuvo durante tres años una relación con la popular presentadora y humorista Ellen DeGeneres antes de romper en 2004, cuando ésta comenzó a salir con la actriz Portia de Rossi, ahora su esposa.
El trabajo fotográfico de Hedison ha sido expuesto en todo el mundo, aunque también ha incursionado en el mundo del cine como directora y actriz, como en la serie sobre lesbianas "The L Word".
Foster atesora dos Óscar como Mejor actriz por "El silencio de los corderos" (1991), película en la que interpretó a la agente del FBI Clarice Starling en busca del asesino en serie Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) y "Acusados" (1988).
También tuvo actuaciones destacadas en "Taxi Driver" (1976) de Martin Scorsese, "La habitación del pánico" (2002) de David Fincher y "Elysium" (2013) de Neill Blomkamp.
Durante la entrega de premios de los Globos de Oro de 2013 en Los Angeles, Foster sorprendió al público al hablar por primera vez habló de su rumoreada homosexualidad y decir que su expareja, Cydney Bernard, es "uno de los amores más profundos" de su vida.
Ambas mantuvieron una relación de 20 años hasta 2008 y son madres de dos niños, Charlie y Christopher, quienes son su razón "de respirar y evolucionar, mi sangre y mi alma".
Sin embargo, negó que fuera a "salir del armario", pues ya lo había hecho "como cien años atrás, en la edad de piedra, en esos días en los que una chica frágil confió en familia y amigos y compañeros de trabajo", señaló.
Foster reconoció que se siente muy orgullosa de su "familia moderna".


Happy Easter to both of you. Same to your families and fans.

"Turking" Por Daniel Galilea EFE Reportajes

Los ‘turker’ son profesionales que efectúan un trabajo que no puede ser realizado por ordenadores y, según los expertos, conforman un nuevo mercado laboral de creciente auge ya que serán siempre necesarios, a pesar de la evolución de la inteligencia artificial.
Los ordenadores y cerebros electrónicos son capaces de ganar al ajedrez al mejor jugador de carne y hueso o dotar a los robots de muchas capacidades humanas que le permitan actuar incluso en los ambientes más inhóspitos donde las personas no pueden vivir sin protección como el vacío espacial o las entrañas de un volcán.
Pero hay tareas que las máquinas más avanzadas no pueden realizar. Por ejemplo, si un ayuntamiento quiere contar cuántos parquímetros tiene debidamente pintados y limpios en la ciudad, necesita disponer de personas para efectuar ese trabajo.
Una de las opciones, en este caso, consiste en pagar un determinado número de profesionales para que hagan ‘clic’ en miles de fotografías y etiqueten qué cantidad de estos elementos urbanos están en buenas o malas condiciones y cuántos de ellos habría que remozar y limpiar.
Estos trabajadores, que hacen un trabajo que no puede ser realizado por los ordenadores, son los denominados ‘turkers’ o personas que practican el ‘turking’, y está considerado como un nuevo y pujante mercado laboral ‘online’, señalan desde la compañía multinacional Xerox.
El equipo de investigación de esta empresa ha elaborado un estudio para descubrir las claves e identificar las principales características de los ‘turkers’ y cómo llevan a cabo sus Tareas de Inteligencia Humana (Human Intelligence Tasks, HITs), cómo están organizados y cómo se puede controlar este tipo de labor que, en cierta forma, es “invisible”.
El término HITs proviene la sigla HI (Human Intelligence o inteligencia humana) en contraposición a la Inteligencia Artificial o Artificial Intelligence, de los cerebros electrónicos o máquinas que razonan por si mismas, cuya sigla en inglés es AI.
“Las relaciones son clave para los 'turkers'”, según el trabajo titulado “Being a Turker” (“Ser un "turker") y efectuado por los científicos David B. Martin y Benjamin Hanrahan, del Centro Europeo de Investigación de Xerox (XRCE); junto con Neha Gupta, de la Universidad de Nottingham (Reino Unido); y Jacki O’Neill, antiguo investigador del XRCE.
De acuerdo a esta investigación, los 'turker' prefieren el anonimato y la flexibilidad, aunque también quieren mantener buenas relaciones de trabajo y una comunicación fluida, y piden una remuneración justa para el trabajo que realizan, lo que incluye salarios coherentes, imparcialidad a la hora de juzgar el trabajo y puntualidad en los pagos.
Según Xerox, el ‘turking’ es considerado como profesión cuya principal motivación es ganar dinero por la plataforma Amazon Mechanical Turk (AMT), un mercado de trabajo en internet que requiere la participación de personas y permite a las empresas acceder, mediante programación informática, a un personal diverso y aprovechar la denominada ‘inteligencia humana’.
Desde AMT señalan que existen asuntos que los seres humanos pueden hacer de manera más eficaz que los ordenadores, como identificar objetos en una foto o un vídeo, evitar la duplicidad de datos, transcribir grabaciones de audio o buscar detalles en los datos.
UNA PIEZA CLAVE: LA PLATAFORMA AMT.
Las empresas o los desarrolladores que necesiten que les hagan tareas “HITs”, pueden utilizar la plataforma AMT para acceder a miles de empleados de calidad alta, de todo el mundo, a bajo coste, y después integrar mediante programación los resultados de dicho trabajo directamente en sus procesos y sistemas empresariales.
En esta web, una serie de empresas o usuarios ‘solicitantes’ suben a la plataforma diferentes tipos de HITs y los usuarios ‘trabajadores’ eligen los encargos que les interesan y los efectúan. Cuando los ‘solicitantes’ verifican que se han ejecutado de forma correcta, remuneran a esos trabajadores.
Según el estudio de Xerox, los salarios de los ‘turker’ suelen variar, aunque los ingresos de estos trabajadores no suelen superar los 11.000 o 12.000 euros al año.
Por otra parte, de acuerdo a esta investigación muchos "turker" eligen este tipo de profesión porque no pueden encontrar un buen trabajo o necesitan ingresos adicionales, mientras que algunos trabajan desde sus casas y, para otros, hacer ‘turking’ es una de las pocas opciones para ganar dinero.
"La mayor parte de los 'turker', un nombre propio que carece de traducción, provienen sobre todo de Estados Unidos y la India", explica a Efe, Ben Hanrahan, uno de los autores del estudio de Xerox e investigador en el Work Practice Technology Group del XRCE, situado en los Alpes franceses, cerca de Grenoble.
Según Hanrahan, "los 'turker' americanos son tanto mujeres como hombres, en su mayoría de unos 30 años de edad y están relativamente bien educados, con al menos un diploma de la escuela secundaria y, a menudo, con algún tipo de formación profesional o licenciatura. En general trabajan desde su casa".
“Parte de la motivación para ser `turker´ radica en que disfrutan de la flexibilidad que les aporta el trabajo desde casa, o porque necesitan hacerlo por razones de salud, o porque no pueden encontrar trabajo”, explica el experto del XRCE.
Para Hanrahan, la principal diferencia de los "turker" respecto de otros trabajadores en línea o a distancia, es que su trabajo, denominado 'freelance radical’ o ‘trabajo independiente radical', es a menudo anónimo y no requiere mucha coordinación entre el 'turker' y el empleador.
"El ‘turking’ se caracteriza - según este profesional- por la falta de relaciones tradicionales entre el empleado y el empleador, aunque en algunos casos puede surgir una relación que se va desarrollando con el tiempo debido a que un trabajador es especialmente eficaz.
TRABAJOS PARA LA ‘INTELIGENCIA HUMANA’.
"El tamaño y la ‘granularidad’ de las tareas de los ‘turker’ son también mucho más pequeños y su trabajo es más aislado, que los de otros trabajadores profesionales remotos o en línea", añade Hanrahan.
El especialista explica que los 'turker' efectúan tareas como el etiquetado de imágenes, la transcripción de imágenes a texto (por ejemplo, las imágenes de tarjetas de visita) o la escritura de contenidos.
Además, Hanrahan cree que el modelo de 'trabajo independiente radical' "tiene el potencial de propagarse a otros trabajos más cualificados, en particular a aquellos que pueden ser particionados y transformados en paquetes de información con facilidad, por ejemplo escribir las entradas de un blog, lo cual ya se está efectuando con este sistema actualmente".
En opinión de este experto, dadas las actuales tecnologías y la dirección que sigue su desarrollo, los 'turker' serán necesarios, al menos hasta que se entrenen los algoritmos que finalmente podrían sustituirlos.
En el futuro previsible habrá un número suficiente de las tareas tipo HIT que necesitarán un entrenamiento proporcionado por los seres humanos, de acuerdo a Hanrahan.
"Además, hay muchas tareas que requerirán a los humanos en el futuro inmediato, como las que son en si mismas juicios subjetivos o que involucran la generación de contenidos, y también se prevé que habrá una migración de nuevas formas de trabajo hacia el modelo 'turking'", explica.
Para Hanrahan, los humanos son mucho mejores que las computadoras en muchas cosas, algunas de ellas particularmente relevantes para el ‘turking’, como la comprensión y el razonamiento semánticos, el razonamiento subjetivo y la generación de texto, así como en los temas relacionados con la perfección espiritual y las respuestas emocionales.
"Para su trabajo, los 'turker' necesitan un ordenador con un acceso a internet, preferiblemente rápido", señala este experto.
Matiza que más allá de eso, "la habilidad que se necesita puede variar, si bien disponer de un alto nivel en cuanto al ordenador y al inglés, idioma en el que están escritas muchas de las tareas, ayuda a completar los trabajos de manera más rápida", precisa.
"El pago y la asignación de las tareas del ‘turking’ se realiza principalmente a través del sistema de Amazon", señala Hanrahan.
Para convertirse en un ' turker ' bien remunerado y eficaz, el experto de Xerox recomienda al aspirante invertir una buena cantidad de tiempo en aprender el paisaje de ‘turking’, es decir, la forma de identificar a los buenos y malos solicitantes, cuáles son las cualificaciones más rentables y cómo configurar bien su entorno con diferentes recursos de software y aplicaciones.

Rebeca Pous Por Cine54






No el hambre, sino las picaduras de mosquito, han sido las responsables de la evacuación de Rebeca Pous de la isla de Supervivientes para mantenerla durante 48 horas en observación debido a una reacción alérgica.
La cantante ya ha demostrado con anterioridad que está preparada para la supervivencia (no en vano se alzó con la cuarta posición de Aventura en África, la última edición del reality emitido en Antena 3), sin embargo la suerte no le ha sonreído en esta ocasión y el concurso puede terminar antes de lo previsto para ella.

El programa ha dado dos días a Rebeca para ser tratada en la civilización, con el fin de lograr su recuperación y que pueda reincorporarse al concurso con sus compañeros. Y parece que lo está consiguiendo. Álvaro de la Lama, presentador de El debate de Supervivientes daba la última hora sobre la cantante, y aparentemente su mejoría es un hecho. No obstante, al tratarse de una reacción alérgica a las picadoras de mosquito (que van a seguir estando en la isla cuando ella vuelva), habrá que vigilar con lupa a la concursante.

Pese a este contratiempo, Rebeca Pous quiere continuar en el programa y no se plantea abandonar, algo que demostró al ser evacuada entre lágrimas. En la isla ha dejado a sus compañeros divididos en dos grupos: Amador Mohedano, Vivi Figueredo, Carolina Sobe y Chiqui, que son más afines a ella, y Nacho Montes, Kátia Aveiro, Tony Spina, Abraham García, Diego Matomoros y Yong Li, en el bando contrario.
El próximo lunes se producirá una nueva baja en el programa, que podrá desestabilizar la balanza en favor de uno de los dos grupos. Amador Mohedano, Nacho Montes y Viviana Figueredo se juegan la expulsión de Playa Uva y el traslado al palafito, donde Rafa Lomana y Leo Margets esperan a su nuevo rival.

Lupita Nyong'o

Lupita Nyong'o by Zach Johnson

Move over, Gwyneth Paltrow—Lupita Nyong'o is People's Most Beautiful Woman!

The Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave star succeeds the Iron Man 3 actress for this year's title, marking her first appearance on the magazine's cover. The news was revealed on NBC's Today Wednesday.

Nyong'o never dreamed she would be the person selected for the publication's 25th anniversary issue. "It was exciting and just a major, major compliment," the 31-year-old Non-Stop star humbly admits. "And especially, I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen."

Born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, Nyong'o first equated beauty with what she saw on TV: "Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair," she recalls. "Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess." Luckily, Nyong'o says her mother, Dorothy, "always said I was beautiful. And I finally believed her at some point." Now she says the best compliments are "when I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on. And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress."

When it comes to beauty, Nyong'o says, "Happiness is the most important thing."

When editorial director Jess Cagle revealed the magazine's cover on Today, he explained why the staff chose the relative newcomer. "She is fantastic...She's kind of all the rage," he explained. "There was really no contest this year. She seemed like the only choice. Usually there's a lot of debate; this time, we were all in agreement. She's obviously talented, obviously beautiful, she is incredibly stylish, but the way she carries herself with such grace and such humility, I think it's what put her over the top."

"I fell in love with her right before the Oscars when she gave a speech at the Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon, and she spoke really frankly about...having felt unbeautiful when she was a girl. And she would pray for lighter skin. She spoke really openly about her journey to embracing the way that she looked, and then ultimately realizing that physical beauty is not what sustains you," Cagle added. "I just love her."


In a pre-taped interview with Savannah Guthrie, Nyong'o reiterated that the honor came as a surprise. "What an incredible journey to go from that feeling to being on the cover of this magazine. I mean, you could have never told me that that would happen when I was 16 and insecure about my complexion," the Yale School of Drama graduate said. "I hope it means something to more than just me, to people like me who feel unbeautiful in whatever skin they're in." And while she may look at ease at awards shows these days, that's not always the case. "The red carpet—I mean, that thing is intense!" Nyong'o admitted. "It's horrific, it's frustrating, it's painful, it's beautiful, it's funny, it's exciting and it's fun."

Winning an Oscar has elevated Nyong'o's profile, but she's yet to book another movie role. "I don't know what doors I thought would open, but it's opened doors," she said coyly. Asked if there's any casting news she wanted to share with Today viewers, she replied, "Nothing that I can speak of."

"You say it so nicely, though, that I forgive you for not telling me anything," Guthrie said, laughing.

What's been the strangest part about becoming famous so quickly? Recently, she recalled, "I was sitting, getting my haircut. Someone passed by and peered in and said, 'You're really beautiful,' and I said, 'Thank you.' And he said, 'You know that girl in 12 Years a Slave? That actress? You look just like her.' I said, 'Thank you so much,'" she said. "I was like, 'That is an interesting scenario.' But I liked that."



Congrats. Also, Happy Easter to you. Same to your family and fans.

God bless.

Margot Robbie by Peter Gicas

Talk about one lucky fish!

Sure, he may have been out of the water, but the fella undoubtedly thought it was a small price to pay to be held by the likes of Margot Robbie. In a bikini, no less!

The beautiful Wolf of Wall Street actress took to Instagram on Tuesday and graciously posted a pic of herself sporting a sexy two-piece on a boat in Nicaragua.

While our view of the hot 23-year-old is slightly obstructed here by her newfound friend, we're certainly not complaining.


And it's probably safe to say that Robbie returned her pal to the ocean, seeing how she did write as the caption, "Fish are friends not food! #HappyEarthDay."

The stunning star went from blond to brunette back in January.

She recently revealed the change to her lovely locks was for her role opposite Chris Pine and Chiwetel Ejiofor in the post-apocalyptic drama Z for Zachariah, about a small farm town that's pressing on after a nuclear war.

No word if the part calls for a bikini. Fingers crossed, though.

Justin Bieber by Rebecca Macatee




Justin Bieber's latest offense appears to have been an honest mistake.

On Wednesday, the 20-year-old singer paid a visit to Toyko's Yasukuni Shrine, a controversial structure honoring Japanese criminals who committed horrific acts against China and other parts of Asia during World War II. The Biebs, seemingly unaware of its history, Instagrammed a photo of himself bowing before the shrine, writing, "Thank you for your blessings."

But Justin, perhaps thanks to social media, quickly discovered the disturbing history of his roadside stop and why his Chinese fans would be upset with him for dropping by. He deleted his photo of the structure, putting up, instead, a screen grab of a Time article with the headline (which has since been updated to reflect his apology), "Justin Bieber Drops by Controversial Shrine Honoring War Criminals in Tokyo." He didn't just acknowledge his gaffe, though—he took responsibility for his inernational faux pas and explained how it happened.


"While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine. I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer," he wrote. "To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan."

Just two hours after posting his apology, Justin still appeared to be upset by his mistake, Instagramming a solemn picture of himself, head bowed, staring at the floor sadly.

Lesson learned.




Happy Easter. Same to your family and fans. God bless.

Rumer Willis (Not suitable for kids) Publiée Aujourd'hui





Attention mesdames et messieurs, Rumer Willis, vilain petit canard de la famille n'est plus. Désormais la fille de Demi Moore joue les bombes sur tapis rouge et ose tout, même montrer sa culotte aux Elle Women in Music le 22 avril 2014 à Los Angeles.


Etre la progéniture de deux stars hollywoodiennes n'est pas forcément l'assurance d'être ultra-canon (ça nous rassure), Rumer Willis en sait malheureusement quelque chose. Pendant longtemps vilain petit canard de la famille et physique atypique d'Hollywood, elle a grandi dans l'ombre de sa mère la sublissime Demi Moore, souvent surnommée "Mister Potato Head" par les cruels médias américains. Sauf qu'aujourd'hui, Miss Rumer prend sa revanche.

Invitée à la soirée donnée en l'honneur des femmes faisant partie de l'industrie de la musique organisée par ELLE US à Los Angeles le 22 avril 2014, elle opère le tour de force d'éclipser toutes les autres jeunes femmes présentes ce soir-là, Sophia Bush et Stacy Keibler inclues. Il faut dire que la fille de Bruce Willis sort le grand jeu avec une tenue à la limite de la décence !

Vous avez dit sexy ?

Visiblement déjà nostalgique de Coachella, la jeune femme s'affiche dans un cropped top noir à manche longue qu'elle associe à une jupe ultra moulante et surtout agrémentée de découpes qui laisse très peu de place à l'imagination. Dangereuse à porter, cette pièce se révèle être en plus très traître puisque en prenant la pose la main sur la main sur la hanche et de 3/4 (l'astuce pour affiner sa silhouette) Rumer nous dévoile sa petite culotte rose ! Un petit fashion faux pas mais au moins la fille de Demi porte des sous-vêtements ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas, oui Iggy Azalea, on parle de toi ! La rappeuse nous a en effet flashé lors de la cérémonie des MTV EMAs 2013.

Le beauty look qui va bien !

Bref, malgré ce petit écart Rumer nous en met quand même plein la vue et si elle se sent pousser des ailes côté style, elle semble avoir enfin trouvé une mise en beauté qui lui convient. Le regard sublimé d'une ombre bronze et d'une touche de mascara, elle affiche un teint unifié, les pommettes accentuées par un blush qui adoucit un peu son menton qu'elle tient malheureusement de Bruce. Même idée côté coiffure, en craquant pour une crinière dans les tons roux ramassée d'un côté entre la cultissime cascade Veronica Lake et le Wavy tendance.

Par Élodie Mandel

Plusieurs mois avant les révélations de Closer et alors que la relation entre François Hollande et Julie Gayet commence à faire parler dans Paris, Valérie Trierweiler aurait tenté, à sa façon, de reprendre la main explique la journaliste Elise Karlin dans son livre "Le président qui voulait vivre ses vies".

Comme nombre de femmes trompées, sans doute n'a-t-elle pas voulu voir, accepter, reconnaître la réalité, la présence d'une autre femme dans le cœur de son compagnon. Si, à Paris Match elle a déclaré que "quand elle a su, elle a cru tomber d'un gratte-ciel", Valérie Trierweiler savait. Déjà le photographe Pascal Rostain avait raconté comment la first girlfriend avait interrompu une discussion du président et de lui-même au cours de laquelle ils évoquaient la rumeur...

Dans son "livre choc" qui sort aujourd'hui en librairie et dont les bonnes feuilles ont été publiées dans l'Express, la journaliste de l'Express raconte comment, alors qu'il ne s'agissait encore d'une rumeur encore confidentielle, en mars 2013, c'est Valérie Trierweiler qui a conseillé à sa rivale de dénoncer la rumeur et de porter plainte. Malgré les discussions avec son compagnon qui tente de l'amadouer, elle "décide de téléphoner à Julie Gayet, qu'elle a croisée pendant la campagne", explique la journaliste. La suite on la connaît...

UNE PLAINTE QUI DONNE CORPS À LA RUMEUR

Son avocat Me Toledano fait savoir dans un communiqué à l'AFP que sa cliente "porte plainte contre X pour atteinte à l'intimité de la vie privée". "La comédienne Julie Gayet, dont je suis l'avocat, a chargé mon cabinet de poursuivre sur le plan judiciaire la diffusion de la rumeur colportée sur internet qui lui prête sans aucun fondement une relation sentimentale avec le président de la République", a indiqué l'avocat dans une déclaration transmise à l'AFP.

C'est Valérie Trierweiler "qui la pousse à démentir et l'engage à porter plainte, comme Benjamin Biolay en 2010". encore une fois, Malgré les "dénégations" de François Hollande qui a toujours veillé à "rassurer" Valérie, la first girlfriend n'est "pas apaisée"... Quelques mois plus tard, dans le Grand Journal Stéphane Guillon, désireux de faire un bon mot, évoque à mots à peine couverts la rumeur face à l'intéressée dans un ping-pong verbal avec un Antoine de Caunes plus cabot que jamais ... Si celui-ci rejettera d'un revers de main l'idée d'être responsable du Gayet Gate et de l'enquête de Closer, débutée, comme l'avait expliqué la directrice de la rédaction après cette émission, le mal est fait... Julie Gayet, se sentant piégée, s'en prendra d'ailleurs, en coulisses à Guillon.

LE PRÉSIDENT DÉMENT LA RUMEUR AUPRÈS DE VALÉRIE TRIERWEILER ET PAS QUE...

Une fois encore, c'est un trait de caractère du président qui apparaît dans cette anecdote, rapporte l'auteur du livre. Il n'y a pas qu'à Valérie Trierweiler que François Hollande avait démenti la rumeur... et menti... "Dans la voiture qui le ramène le 19 juillet 2013, 4 mois après le dépôt de plainte, du marché de Tulle où il a fait une ballade avec Julie Gayet, il se retrouve face à un Bernard Combes, surpris de voir « cette femme grande blonde, jolie, comédienne" à ses côtés. Pour expliquer qui est cette mystérieuse inconnue qui ne figure au planning officiel que sous le terme « déjeuner privé », il explique "c'est une actrice avec qui on m'a prêté une histoire. J'ai même dû démentir", conclura avec aplomb le président... face à un maire de Tulle circonspect, qui rapporte l'auteur "ne sait pas qui est Julie Gayet"...

US-Ölpreis gibt weiter nach

NEW YORK (Frankfurt: HX6.F - Nachrichten) /LONDON/WIEN (dpa-AFX) - Die Ölpreise haben sich am Mittwoch uneinheitlich entwickelt. Während US-Rohöl weiter nachgab, stieg der Preis für Nordseeöl leicht an. Gegen Mittag kostete ein Barrel (159 Liter) Brent zur Lieferung im Juni 109,42 US-Dollar. Das (Shenzhen: 002421.SZ - Nachrichten) waren 15 Cent mehr als am Dienstag. Der Preis für ein Fass der amerikanischen Sorte WTI sank hingegen um 35 Cent auf 101,40 Dollar.
Den Preisdruck bei WTI erklären Marktbeobachter mit dem reichlichen Angebot an US-Öl. Nachdem das private American Petroleum Institute (API) am Dienstagabend einen Anstieg der amerikanischen Ölreserven gemeldet hatte, werden am Mittwochnachmittag die wöchentlichen Bestandszahlen der Regierung erwartet. Diese liegen nur noch vier Millionen Barrel unter dem vor einem Jahr verzeichneten Rekordniveau, wie es in einem Kommentar der Commerzbank (Xetra: CBK100 - Nachrichten) heißt.
In der Ukraine-Krise zeichnet sich unterdessen keine Entspannung ab. Während die USA Russland abermals aufforderten, mehr zur Deeskalation im Ostteil des Landes zu tun, nahm die ukrainische Regierung ihren "Anti-Terror-Einsatz" zur Entwaffnung prorussischer Uniformierter wieder auf. Russland ist einer der weltgrößten Ölexporteure. Sollte der Westen Wirtschaftssanktionen gegen das Land verhängen, könnte dies im Gegenzug eine Einschränkung der Öl- und Gasexporte nach sich ziehen.
Der Preis für Rohöl der Organisation Erdöl exportierender Länder (Opec) ist weiter gesunken. Nach Berechnungen des Opec-Sekretariats vom Mittwoch kostete ein Barrel am Dienstag im Durchschnitt 105,19 US-Dollar. Das waren 15 Cent weniger als am Montag. Die Opec berechnet ihren Korbpreis auf Basis der zwölf wichtigsten Sorten des Kartells.

Ex-Frau: Wusste nichts von Strauss-Kahns Eskapaden (AFP)

Die frühere Ehefrau des in mehrere Sex-Skandale verwickelten Ex-IWF-Chefs Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Anne Sinclair, will nichts von den Eskapaden des heute 64-Jährigen gewusst haben. "Ob Sie es mir glauben oder nicht: Ich wusste es nicht", sagte Sinclair dem Fernsehsender France 2 in einem Interview. "Als ich Dominique geheiratet habe, wusste ich, dass er ein Charmeur, ein Verführer ist." Sie habe dann von "Gerüchten" über Sex-Affären ihres Mannes gehört, diese aber "ignoriert".
"Gerüchte sind dazu gemacht um zu zerstören, um zu töten, um zu beschädigen, also habe ich nicht auf sie gehört", sagte die 65-jährige Journalistin in einem vom Sender Europe 1 veröffentlichten Auszug des France-2-Interviews. Wenn sie einen Verdacht gehegt und ihren damaligen Mann darauf angesprochen habe, habe dieser alles abgestritten und sie "beruhigt".
Dem früheren französischen Finanzminister, der lange Zeit auch als möglicher sozialistischer Präsidentschaftskandidat gehandelt wurde, steht in seiner Heimat wegen Sex-Partys mit Prostituierten ein Prozess wegen Zuhälterei bevor. 2008 hatte er eine Affäre mit einer Volkswirtin des Internationalen Währungsfonds (IWF), an dessen Spitze "DSK" damals stand. Als IWF-Chef musste Strauss-Kahn im Mai 2011 zurücktreten, nachdem er in New York wegen Vergewaltigungsvorwürfen festgenommen worden war. Ein Strafprozess wurde später wegen mangelnder Glaubwürdigkeit des mutmaßlichen Opfers, eines Zimmermädchens in einem New Yorker Luxushotel, eingestellt.
In der Affäre um das Zimmermädchen hatte Sinclair fest zu Strauss-Kahn gehalten. Erst später trennte sich die Herausgeberin der französischen Ausgabe der Online-Zeitung "Huffington Post" von Strauss-Kahn. Die Ehe wurde im vergangenen Jahr geschieden.

Amerikanisches Kabelfernsehen vor dem Abgrund (Handelsblatt )

So muss die Hölle aussehen. Jedenfalls dann, wenn man ein Anbieter von Kabelfernsehen ist. Mit einem einfachen Trick hebelt ein Start-Up-Unternehmen das lukrative Geschäftsmodell einer ganzen Branche aus und ist seit zwei Jahren durch Nichts zu stoppen. Ab heute muss sich der oberste Gerichtshof der USA in Washington mit dem Fall Aereo befassen, und es geht für alle Beteiligten um alles oder nichts. Urteilt er wie die Vorinstanzen, dann stehen für Comcast, Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC -Nachrichten) & Co Milliarden Dollar an Umsatz im Feuer - und TV in den USA wird nie mehr das sein, was es einmal war.
Der (Shenzhen: 002631.SZ - Nachrichten) frühere Paramount-, QVC- und Fox-TV-Manager Barry Diller hat nicht immer Glück gehabt im Internet-Geschäft. An seine Suchmaschine Ask.com mit Sitz in Oakland, Herausforderer von Google (NasdaqGS:GOOG - Nachrichten) , erinnert sich heute kaum noch jemand. Aber mit Aereo hat der alte Haudegen der TV-Industrie einen absoluten Überraschungscoup gelandet. Für die einen ist das 2012 gegründete Unternehmen nichts anderes als die Wiedergeburt der Musik-Raubritterplattform Napster für TV-Sender, für die anderen ist es der lang erwartete Fangschuss, der eine der am stärksten verkrusteten und selbstgefälligsten Branchen der Unterhaltungsindustrie zur Strecke bringen könnte.
Zuerst als frech und anmaßend verlacht, erwies sich Aereo als unerwartet zäh. Der Webdienst liefert seinen Kunden gegen eine Gebühr von acht Dollar im Monat TV-Sender wie ABC (Taiwan OTC:1780.TWO - Nachrichten) oder CBS auf Fernseher, Smartphone, Tablet oder PC. Nichts umwerfendes, sollte man meinen. Doch Aereo zahlt den TV-Sendern dafür, anders als die Kabelbetreiber, keinen einzigen Cent.
Ein klarer Fall von Urheberrechtsverletzung, war der erste Gedanke der TV-Gewaltigen, die schnell wieder zum Tagesgeschäft übergingen: Wie erfinde ich ständig neue Gebühren für die Kunden und wie gestalte ich die Programmbündel so unattraktiv wie möglich, damit der Kunde so viel wie möglich abonnieren muss. Das Risiko dabei ist überschaubar: Kabelanbieter wie Comcast haben in ihren Verbreitungsgebieten praktisch keine ernsthafte Konkurrenz.
Doch die TV-Manager hatten nicht mit der Gerissenheit des in San Francisco geborenen Diller gerechnet. Er hatte den Stein der Weisen gefunden, die Achillesferse der Quasimonopolisten, die eine, entscheidende Lücke im Gesetz. Der Fall "American Broadcasting Companies, Inc vs. Aereo, Inc" zog sich von Instanz zu Instanz und jedes Mal gewann der Neuling.
In den USA gibt es traditionell drei Möglichkeiten, TV zu sehen: Über Antenne, kostenlos, oder über einen Kabel-TV- oder Satellitenanbieter, dann gegen entsprechendes Entgelt.
Aereo nun simuliert den Antennenempfang über das Internet. In großen Lagerhäusern stehen zigtausende Antennen, jede nicht größer als eine 25-Cent-Münze. Die greifen die Signale der Sender ab und senden sie per Internet weiter auf die Empfangsgeräte.
Wichtig dabei: Pro Antenne gibt es immer nur einen Empfänger. Denn das ist der Trick. Damit ist es nach US-Recht kein "Broadcast", keine öffentliche Vorführung, so wie bei einem Kabelunternehmen. Es ist eine private Vorführung. Und für die muss, so argumentiert Aereo, auch keine Gebühren bezahlt werden. Nur weil die Antenne nicht auf dem Dach des Kunden, sondern im Lagerhaus steht, wird das Recht nicht ausgehebelt. Bislang folgten zum Entsetzen der Sender und TV-Kabelanbieter alle Richter der Argumentation.
Urteil hat Folgen für die gesamte Internet-Branche
Jetzt ist es am Obersten Gericht der USA in Washington, endgültig zu entscheiden. Der Prozess kommt zu einer absolut schlechten Zeit für die TV-Industrie. Immer mehr Amerikaner zeigen ihrem Kabelanbieter von hohen Kosten genervt die kalte Schulter. Online-Video-Anbieter wie Hulu oder Netflix (NasdaqGS: NFLX - Nachrichten) feiern immer neue Rekorde. Für ein paar Dollar im Monat gibt es Spielfilme, Sitcoms und Serien, alles aus der Konserve. Zusammen mit Aereo für das aktuelle Programm ist ein Paket für den Ersatz von Comcast oder Time Warner Cable geschnürt.
Das (Shenzhen: 002421.SZ - Nachrichten) trifft die Sender tief ins Mark. Wenn Aereo vor dem obersten Gerichtshof siegt, gibt es für Satelliten- und Kabelanbieter keinen Grund mehr, Milliarden von Dollar an die Studios zu überweisen, damit die im Gegenzug die Programme nach Gutdünken in teuren Paketen weiterverkaufen. Ein System, bei dem alle profitieren, mit Ausnahme des Kunden.
Chase Carey, Präsident von 21st Century Fox, hat für den Fall eines Sieges von Aereo schon angekündigt, seine Programme aus der Antennenverteilung zu nehmen. Der nationale Football-Verband und der Major League Baseball-Verband warnen das Gericht, dass mit Aereo das Finanzierungssystem, auf dem die Verbände "seit Jahrzehnten" beruhen, komplett zerstört werde. Ein System, das "gut etabliert" sei und "hervorragend funktioniert".
Barry Diller sieht das ganz anders. Seit Jahrzehnten, schreibt er ein einem Meinungsbeitrag für das "Wall Street Journal", hätten die Sender von einem lukrativen Deal mit der Regierung profitiert. Sie durften die wertvollen Frequenzen nutzen, um ihre Inhalte kostenlos zu transportieren und mit Werbung riesige Gewinne einfahren. Jetzt aber gebe es das Internet.
Im Grunde sagt Aereo nichts anderes, als dass der TV-Konsument entweder eine billige Antenne bei Best Buy (Berlin: BUY.BE - Nachrichten) für 20 Dollar kauft oder die Antenne in einem Lagerhaus von Aereo mietet. Dazu gibt es den Cloud-Speicher, in dem Aereo TV-Sendungen speichert, damit man sie später ansehen kann. Die USA sind ein riesiges und weites Land, viele Gegenden sind für die Kabelanbieter wenig lukrativ. Über 50 Millionen Haushalte nutzen heute noch Antennenfernsehen.
Damit steht das Gericht vor einer schweren Aufgabe. Erklärt es private Cloud-Speicher wie Aereo zu öffentlichen Veranstaltungen, hat das weite Auswirkungen auf die gesamte Internetindustrie und Anbieter wie Box.net, Dropbox oder Cloud-Riesen wie Google und Amazon. Sie könnten auf einmal dafür verantwortlich sein für das, was sich auf ihren Speichern abspielt.
Urteilt das Gericht, voraussichtlich im Juli (Shenzhen: 002342.SZ - Nachrichten) , für Aereo, dann werden Klone des Dienstes wie Pilze aus dem Boden schießen. Vor allem die Inhalteanbieter selbst werden überlegen, warum sie das dann nicht selbst anbieten sollen. Vor allem dann, wenn ihre Kabel- und Satellitenpartner obsolet werden.
Schon heute ist die Wut groß, kündigten 2007 laut Nielsen noch rund zwei Millionen US-Haushalte ihre Kabelverträge, die im Schnitt über 100 Dollar im Monat kosten, waren es 2012 schon über fünf Millionen. Netflix dagegen meldete am Montag ein starkes Wachstum und einen Kundenbestand von rund 48,4 Millionen.
Die Investoren in Aereo scheinen jedenfalls optimistisch, dass man den Trend der Zeit erkannt hat und die Dinosaurier stürzen wird. Im Januar bekam das Unternehmen weitere 34 Millionen Dollar Risikokapital.
