How Prince Philip’s brave mum Princess Alice was forced into sick x-ray tests on ovaries to ‘cure sexual frustration’

Náhled

A SWISS mental asylum is the last place you’d expect to find a member of the royal family, but the incredible – and often tragic – story of Princess Alice is far from one of gilded privilege. Sectioned over schizophrenia, neutered by Sigmund Freud in twisted experiments and torn away from her family to live […] Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Wayne Merry August 1931 October 2019

Wayne Merry who was on the first ascent of The Nose on El Capitan in 1958, passed away October 29 2019. El Capitan, a sheer granite wall that towers 2,900 feet above Yosemite National Park in California, is one of the most famous climbs in the world. Professional climbers are so familiar with this arduous rock formation that some climb it without rope or race up as fast as they can; the speed record on a route called the Nose, set in 2018 by Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell, is a little under two hours. But for climbers in the first half of the 20th century, limited by rudimentary tools and techniques, El Capitan was terra incognita. The rock face was very smooth, without many of the vertical cracks climbers rely on, and many alpinists considered it insurmountable. Most climbers who did try were content to scale a pitch or two near El Capitan's base. But Wayne Merry, Warren Harding and George Whitmore were determined to go much higher. On Nov. 12, 1958, they became the first climbers to reach the top of El Capitan after ascending the Nose, notable for a daunting overhang called the Great Roof. The climb took 45 days, spread out over about a year and a half; in each leg of the climb they would secure fixed ropes to the highest point they had reached so that they could later resume the climb with relative ease. Merry, whose pathbreaking ascent inspired many climbers who have completed El Capitan in his wake, died on Oct. 30 at his home in Atlin, British Columbia. He was 88. His wife, Cindy Merry, said the cause was metastatic prostate cancer. His death was little reported beyond climbing publications and websites. Harding undertook the climb in 1957 with Mark Powell and Bill Feurer, who were aware of the difficulties they faced. "It was obvious that existing methods of conducting a sustained rock climb would be inadequate," Harding wrote in an article in American Alpine Journal in 1959. "Because of the extreme difficulty of the climbing, we anticipated slow progress - perhaps no more than 100 to 200 feet a day." He added, "We agreed unanimously that the only feasible plan of attack would be to establish a succession of camps up the face, linking them with fixed ropes." Powell and Feurer dropped out before completing the climb. Whitmore, Merry and Rich Calderwood joined Harding in 1958. They subsisted on cheese, raisins, canned fruit and sardines. They carried water in an old paint-thinner can, and drank wine. "We trained on red wine, if anything," Merry told The Yukon News in 2015. They relied on improvised implements, including pitons that they fashioned from the legs of old wood stoves and tools from a hardware store that they repurposed for climbing. "I wouldn't hang a picture from them today, but back then we hung our lives on them," Merry told Yukon North of Ordinary magazine in 2016. The climbers also faced limitations imposed by humans. Yosemite park rangers forbade them to climb during the summer tourist season, so they had a limited time to climb and faced greater risk of bad weather. They also had jobs or were attending school, so they climbed mainly on weekends. The National Park Service gave them a deadline of Thanksgiving to reach the top, so in early November they began a nerve-racking final push. During that effort Merry dropped letters to Cindy Barrison, then his girlfriend and later his wife, from the cliff in tin cans. "We were scared to death half the time," Merry told The San Francisco Chronicle in 2008, the year of the climb's 50th anniversary. "There were days I didn't know what I was doing up there." The push took about 12 days, interrupted by an intense snowstorm; Calderwood dropped out before they reached the top. Frustrated by the delay, the three remaining climbers decided to push on, even in the dark. Harding, wearing a head lamp, climbed up the final pitch overnight, scaling a 90-foot wall, which he later described as "completely devoid of cracks," with the help of "15 pitons, 28 bolts and 14 hours." Harding clambered over the top of the wall at about 6 o'clock on the morning of Nov. 12, with Merry and Whitmore close behind. Members of their small support team had hiked up the mountain from the other side and greeted them with champagne. Fifty years later the House of Representatives passed a resolution honoring Merry, Whitmore and Harding for the accomplishment. Harding died in 2002. In a phone interview, Whitmore, the last survivor of the three, described Merry as "the epitome of a good, steady fellow" whose "even-tempered, usually cheerful, never negative" outlook made climbing El Capitan possible. "Don't get excited, just keep plugging away at it" was Merry's climbing philosophy, Whitmore said. "Maintain a positive at Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Chilean police knock protesters to the ground with water cannon on 50th day of unrest

Protests in Chile stretched into their 50th day on Friday, with both peaceful and violent demonstrations that brought hundreds to the streets against the govt of President Sebastián Piñera. On a central avenue, a mass advanced toward police who retaliated by spraying jets of water strong enough to send people tumbling to the ground.

Chile: Police deploy tear gas and water cannons amid heavy clashes with protesters

Náhled

Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe Thousands of people took to the streets of Santiago on Friday, marking the 50th day of antigovernment protests with clashes and scuffles. Masked activists armed with Molotov cocktails were on the front-line, facing the riot police deploying tear gas and water cannons. Protesters shouted slogans, started a fire in the middle of central Plaza Italia and played the drums. Some activists walked with national flags with a drawn closed eye and banners calling on the authorities to stop the excessive use of tear gas, as they were enraged after the latest report of Chilean National Institute of Human Rights indicated 352 activists had suffered eye injuries since the beginning of the unrest in October. The protests were triggered by a now-withdrawn increase in subway fares. Social discontent has been fuelled by frustration with President Sebastian Pinera's policies and growing inequality.

Jaromír Vašek 08.12.2019, 16:27

Svátek pro mě nastal 6.12.2019. Navštívil jsem naší družební 13.ZŠ Naděžda v Alčevsku (LLR). První hodinu jsem strávil na hodině literatury v 5.třídě. Probírali poemu Nikolaje Někrasova „Moroz, Krasnyj nos“. Děti byly velmi vnímavé. Druhou hodinu jsem s 5.třídou šel do nedaleké místní knihovny Vasilevka na pořad o encyklopediích. Knihovnice děti seznámila s různými druhy encyklopedií, děti si encyklopedie

D.D.: Jsem povoláním adiktolog a ve své práci jsem pomáhal lidem, aby mohli žít důstojně, ať už s drogou nebo bez ní, ale především aby mohli žít důstojně – to je ta nejpodstatnější věc. Abstinence je věc sekundární. V r. 2000 jsem mohl dávat nemocným heroinistům syntetický metadon – látku, která zabije člověka. Aniž bylo

Malá klimatická předpověď: „Globální oteplování“ končí.

Jaromír Bradávka 08.12.2019, 16:06

(Příspěvek ke Konferenci OSN o změnách klimatu (COP25) v Madridu 2. – 13. 12. 2019) Úvod. Zlí jazykové tvrdí, že předpovídat počasí je jako věštit ze skleněné koule. Není to tak úplně pravda. V dnešní době máme k dispozici soubory dat (z hlediska objemu i časové přímky), které nám umožňují poměrně přesně předpovídat počasí alespoň

Česká politická scéna jako na dlani

Čunek opět naštve: Babiš a Čapí hnízdo? Čekal jsem to, dobře to znám. Je to jinak

09.12.2019, 04:44

ROZHOVOR „Domnívám se, že drtivá většina poslanců Evropského parlamentu tyto problémy nevnímá jako nějaké závažné,“ říká o kauzách kolem českého premiéra lidovec a zlínský senátor Jiří Čunek. Obnovení trestního stíhání ho nijak nepřekvapilo, podle něj je nyní Pavel Zeman spíše politik než nezávislý státní zástupce. Čunek v rozhovoru pro ParlamentníListy.cz řekl, že vyšetřování Čapího hnízda nešlo správným směrem, jak ukazuje pravomocné zastavení trestního stíhání rodinných příslušníků Andreje Babiše. A jeho voliče to prý neodradí.

„Že prý máme poslouchat EU!“ Babiš shrnul brutální týden. A šokoval na téma Milionu chvilek

08.12.2019, 19:02

Šéf hnutí ANO Andrej Babiš sepsal další „Čau lidi“. Zdůraznil, že v Česku existují lidé, kteří Babišovi přejí smrt, a když ne smrt, tak dělají všechno pro to, aby zmizel z politiky. I učitelky údajně ponoukají děti, že mají jezdit protestovat na Letnou. Další lidé na něj žalují do Bruselu a snaží se veřejnosti vnutit představu, že EU má co mluvit do přidělování dotací, které plynou z jejího rozpočtu. Mezi těmito žalobníčky je prý i senátor Lukáš Wagenknecht, kterého Babiš označuje za psychopata.

Kokot, poslal ke Klausovi Pavel Novotný. Ale zle se mu to vrátilo. I jeho ODS

Starosta Řeporyjí Pavel Novotný (ODS) opět prokázal, že se nezdráhá i veřejně mluvit či psát tak, jak se říká, jak mu zobák narostl. Ve veřejném prostoru použil slovo „ko**t“. Označil tak výkonného ředitele Institutu Václava Klause Jiřího Weigla. Jenže netrvalo dlouho a přišel protiúder. Ozval se i europoslanec Jan Zahradil (ODS).

„Nepřisírej!“ Pitomec, Pajda, do prdele. Kalousek versus Piráti: Už jde do tuhého

08.12.2019, 20:32

„To Kalousek!“ opakuje často předseda vlády Andrej Babiš (ANO). V poslední době však do Miroslava Kalouska (TOP 09) s chutí šijí především Piráti, k nimž se přidává i bývalý předseda lidovců Pavel Bělobrádek (KDU-ČSL), který konstatoval, že Kalousek napřed rozbil politický pravý střed, a když mu začalo téct do bot, volal po jeho opětovné spolupráci. V tu chvíli se už neudržel bývalý předseda ODS a premiér Mirek Topolánek.

Islám je nenávistná doktrína k ovládnutí světa. Hrozí vyhlazení Evropanů, řekl poslanec od Babiše a představil zásadní projekt „národní fronty“, který chystá proti imigraci

22.08.2017, 16:27

ROZHOVOR „Je to další otřesný důkaz selhání politiky multikulturalismu a celého toho šílenství s přijímáním migrantů, za kterým stojí paní Merkelová a další politici západní Evropy,“ říká o teroristickém útoku v Barceloně poslanec ANO Zdeněk Soukup. Varuje před ustupováním tlaku ze strany Evropské komise a před korektní politikou, která se podle něho bojí přiznat, že nejsme ve válce s radikálním islámem (islamismem), ale s islámem jako takovým.

Chvála české rozvážnosti

David Hilbert 07.12.2019, 00:10

Podle známého kontroverzního výroku Ústavního soudu z dubna tohoto roku je diskriminace (v tomto případě Rusů) v pořádku, pokud ní nevedou hanebné pohnutky. Důvody, které k tomu Ústavní soud vedly jsou ve stručnosti tyto.

Pavel Novotný: Když si Žid přeje smrt Čechů, je to zcela v pořádku

Valentin Dobrotivý 06.12.2019, 00:10

Hned na začátku se přiznám, že osobu Pavla Novotného jsem zaznamenal až minulý měsíc, v souvislosti s jeho plánem postavit v pražských Řeporyjích pomník padlým vlasovcům. Toto gesto jsem ihned pochopil jako typicky populistickou, provokativní snahu o získání tolik důležitého celorepublikového politického PR a laciné reklamy na svojí osobu. Což se očekávaně splnilo na více než 100%. Za jiných okolností by to byla bezvýznamná akce vůdce jedné z periferií hlavního města. Díky přehnané (ale účelově plánované) medializaci ovšem překročila hranice této země a dostala se až do hlavního vysílacího času ruské televize.

Je evropská komise neomylné božstvo?

Lubomír Man 04.12.2019, 00:10

Jistě je, vždyť je to komise složená z lidí tak nesmírně moudrých a nadaných rozumem tak bezchybným a neselhávajícím, že jakýkoli omyl či chybný úsudek kteréhokoli z jeho 28 členů je naprosto vyloučen. A je vynikající okolností, že míru této nadlidské duševní dokonalosti celé komise jako celku i každého z jejích členů zvlášť, jsme si mohli my Češi v minulosti (a můžeme tak činit i v přítomnosti), tak říkajíc osahat na jednom z členů této komise, jímž je naše krajanka a komisařka Věra Jourová.

Kam jsme (ne)došli po třiceti letech

Radomír Dolanský 03.12.2019, 00:10

Chtěli jsme na Západ. To se povedlo. Tehdejší západní svobodu a demokracii socialistický tábor infikoval a dnes se potácíme v něčem, co má něco málo ze Západu, něco víc ze socialismu a stále více z diktatury orwellovského typu. Po roce 89 ́ jsme byli nadšení, jak úžasně nás Západ vítá, objímá s ochotou všemožně pomoci. Dnes, po letech, je jasné, že šlo převážně o kšeft a strategické politicko-vojenské pozice. Navezli do východního bloku miliardy tun západní nadvýroby – převraty v soc. dem. bloku pomohly Západu oddálit agónii nekryté měny a zadluženosti. Následující kolaps se už bude týkat i nás.

Město v Bosně: migranti jsou všude

Autor neuveden 02.12.2019, 00:10

Po zásahu tehdejšího rakouského ministra zahraničí Sebastiana Kurze v roce 2017 byla balkánská trasa z velké části uzavřena, takže se migranti začali hromadit na vnější hranici Chorvatska. Zhruba 90% všech migrantů je natěsnáno v jednom městě v Bosně a Hercegovině, které má 61 000 obyvatel, uvedl starosta Šuhret Fazlić .
