Founder and CEO of Allset, Justin Clegg joins Ryan in this episode. Justin had a great start in AI, he founded 3 Silicon Valley start-ups and worked at multiple fortune 500 software companies before building his newest venture, Allset. He reveals his step-by-step framework for creating a repetitive start-up flywheel of revenue growth and talks about why Allset is on track to becoming one of the fastest-growing start-ups in Utah and even the U.S.   KEY TAKEAWAYS Allset is Justin's fourth start-up venture, they focus on building tools for communications and payments for underserved home companies Allset is on the trajectory to go from zero to 1 million by the end of the year! There are a few different go-to-market strategies Allset focus on. Number one is they rely on a strong capital-efficient sales team. Secondly, they offer demos to potential clients. Thirdly they attend many trade shows and conferences across the states and invest in digital channels to build their network. The pandemic saw the focus of capital moving away from Silicon Valley, this gave Allset the initial opportunity to find funding. Building a strong brand and having their story known alongside being an SME are all things that have helped further funding to be obtained. Fundraising isn't suitable for all businesses; it doesn't make or break a successful company. You must believe in what you are building, be in a large attractive market and have existing customers to attract significant fundraising. It's important to remember that strings and expectations are always attached when raising capital. Sales is a key cornerstone of a business, and it can solve all problems in a variety of ways. Being surrounded by start-ups in Silicon Valley meant that Justin was immersed in possibilities, he was surrounded by unique and novel concepts that were ground-breaking. If you can align your vision and focus with customer pain points, that they are willing to pay you to resolve, you are on to a winning concept. Growth is simply about press, PR, getting the business and brand in front of the right people and of course, revenue. Good product-market fit means if your product was to stop then at least 40% of your customers would be disappointed or frustrated. Writing code, building your product, and listening to customers is critical to the beginning stages of a start-up and creating a great product market fit.

We often report on how well sight loss services are operating, but its not often we talk about services that just do not exist - but should. Listener Alex Scott contacted us after he attended London's Pride Festival a few weeks ago, expressing his dismay at the lack of LGBTQ+ community groups for people who are also blind or partially sighted. Indeed, very few do exist. We found one UK-wide group run by The RNIB in Northern Ireland. We invited Alex to tell us about this missing link and what he'd like to see happen for future. We also speak to Una Mulgrew, who is a Community Facilitator at RNIB Connect in Northern Ireland. She tells us more about her group and whether the RNIB has plans to fill this gap. The Commonwealth Games 2022 have drawn to a close, but these games were unique.

Libby was once a highly decorated sprinter, achieving two gold medals at the Rio Paralympics, but she has since switched to para-cycling and this year's Commonwealth Games was her first track cycling competition.

Chi saranno coloro che verranno accolti dal Padre in Cielo? Gesù rende chiaro che il popolo che troveremo là sarà ben differente da come ce lo immaginiamo, e molti saranno quelli invitati, ma pochi coloro che accetteranno l'invito... e non saranno delle categorie che ci aspettiamo di trovare.---Predicatrice: Jean GuestCLICCA SUL TITOLO PER ASCOLTARE IL MESSAGGIOTempo di lettura: 12 minutiTempo di ascolto audio/visione video: 38 minutiC'è una foto scattata al mio matrimonio trentadue anni fa in cui compare un ragazzo  con gli occhiali, così elegante in giacca e cravatta, proprio in mezzo agli invitati e dal suo sorriso è evidente che gli è piaciuta i matrimonio. Non ho idea di chi fosse. Né mio marito ne ha idea, né le persone sedute accanto a lui, né chiunque altro fosse presente quel giorno. In trentadue anni non abbiamo mai scoperto chi fosse stato e come fosse arrivato in chiesa, perché non compare in nessuna delle foto del ricevimento dopo.Matrimoni, banchetti, feste e ospiti extra compaiono spesso nelle parabole raccontate da Gesù. Oggi ne esamineremo due, la prima in Matteo e la seconda in Luca.Diamo un contesto alla prima parabola. Matteo sta registrando la risposta di Gesù a una sfida dei capi dei sacerdoti e dei leader del popolo quando si trovava nel tempio di Gerusalemme. “Quando giunse nel tempio, i capi dei sacerdoti e gli anziani del popolo si accostarono a lui, mentre egli insegnava, e gli dissero: «Con quale autorità fai tu queste cose? E chi ti ha dato questa autorità?»” (Matteo 21:23)Egli continua rispondendo con quale autorità lo faccia attraverso il racconto di tutta una serie di parabole molto serie che terminano con la parabola degli agricoltori malvagi, permettendo loro, se lo volessero, di vedere il terribile errore che stavano per commettere. Egli sa che i lupi stanno girando intorno e che si trova negli ultimi giorni del suo ministero terreno. Continua quindi con questa parabola che esamineremo più da vicino.“Gesù ricominciò a parlare loro in parabole, dicendo:  «Il regno dei cieli può essere paragonato ad un re, il quale fece le nozze di suo figlio.  Mandò i suoi servi a chiamare gli invitati alle nozze; ma questi non vollero venire.  Mandò una seconda volta altri servi, dicendo: “Dite agli invitati: ‘Io ho preparato il mio pranzo; i miei buoi e i miei animali ingrassati sono ammazzati; tutto è pronto; venite alle nozze'”.  Ma quelli, non curandosene, se ne andarono, chi al suo campo, chi al suo commercio;  altri poi presero i suoi servi, li maltrattarono e li uccisero.  Allora il re [udito ciò] si adirò, mandò le sue truppe a sterminare quegli omicidi e a bruciare la loro città.  Quindi disse ai suoi servi: “Le nozze sono pronte, ma gli invitati non ne erano degni.  Andate dunque ai crocicchi delle strade e chiamate alle nozze quanti troverete”. E quei servi, usciti per le strade, radunarono tutti quelli che trovarono, cattivi e buoni; e la sala delle nozze fu piena di commensali.  Ora il re entrò per vedere quelli che erano a tavola e notò là un uomo che non aveva l'abito di nozze. E gli disse: “Amico, come sei entrato qui senza avere un abito di nozze?” E costui rimase con la bocca chiusa.  Allora il re disse ai servitori: “Legatelo mani e piedi [, prendetelo] e gettatelo nelle tenebre di fuori. Lì ci sarà pianto e stridor di denti”.  Poiché molti sono chiamati, ma pochi eletti».” (Matteo 22:1-14)È una lettura difficile, alla quale dobbiamo prestare attenzione nel modo in cui la affrontiamo e la leggiamo. Come per tutte le parabole, dobbiamo chiederci: "Dov'è Dio in tutto questo"? Non è corretto pensare che sia sempre il padre, il re, il giudice, il protagonista. Se lo facciamo, possiamo ritrovarci con un'immagine di Dio che va contro tutto ciò che le Scritture dicono di lui. Quindi inviterei alla cautela nell'identificare il re qui come Dio, perché quell'uomo è un tiranno assoluto. “Allora il re [udito ciò] si adirò, mandò le sue truppe a sterminare quegli omicidi e a bruciare la loro città.” (v.7)È possibile che Matteo, nel raccontare questa parabola, stia pensando a ciò che è appena accaduto a Gerusalemme con la distruzione del tempio. Non lo sappiamo, ma quello che sappiamo è che il nostro Dio non è un tiranno, è un Dio di amore, compassione e misericordia.Il fulcro della parabola non è il re o il figlio, ma ciò che accade durante un banchetto di nozze nella Palestina del I secolo. Quindi che cosa succede? Si viene invitati al matrimonio più volte. Oggi alcuni inviano i biglietti “Segna la data” prima dell'invito vero e proprio, soprattutto se si tratta di un matrimonio di destinazione come questo invito che mi è giunto qualche anno fa: sulla cartolina si legge: “20/07/2020, segna la data - Liz & James  diranno “Si, lo voglio”  nella Bellissima città di Firenze, Italia”Le persone hanno bisogno di tempo per risparmiare i soldi! Ai tempi di Gesù si riceveva un equivalente del "segna la data", poi un invito, poi un promemoria e infine, quando tutto era pronto, un avviso finale del tipo: "Forza, siamo pronti".“Mandò i suoi servi a chiamare gli invitati alle nozze”  (v. 3)Quindi il banchetto nuziale non doveva essere una sorpresa per gli invitati: ne erano a conoscenza da molto tempo e l'invito proveniva dal loro re. Una volta sono stata invitata a incontrare la Regina Elisabetta in visita alla mia città, Nottingham, ma ho rifiutato: sono repubblicana, non voglio aver a che fare coi reali. Ma sono grata alla democrazia che mi permette di scegliere. All'epoca di questa parabola le cose erano molto diverse. Ci si aspettava che gli invitati al banchetto di nozze del figlio del re esprimessero l'onore che dovevano al re e la loro fedeltà al legittimo erede del suo trono. Rifiutare l'invito equivaleva a ribellarsi. A chi sta parlando Gesù? Ricordiamo che sta rispondendo ai farisei, ai sacerdoti e agli anziani ebrei, le persone che più di tutte dovrebbero conoscere il Messia e l'invito di Dio.Se i primi invitati non verranno, il banchetto sarà aperto a tutti.“Quindi disse ai suoi servi: “Le nozze sono pronte, ma gli invitati non ne erano degni. Andate dunque ai crocicchi delle strade e chiamate alle nozze quanti troverete”. E quei servi, usciti per le strade, radunarono tutti quelli che trovarono, cattivi e buoni.” (v.- :8-10a)Attenzione a ciò che è scritto: “cattivi e buoni”....Ho ripreso questo annuncio comparso qualche tempo fa nella mia Inghilterra il cui testo diceva questo:AVVERTIMENTO: fornicatori, ubriaconi, sodomiti, omosessuali, rapper gangster, donne immodeste, spettatori di film immorali, darwinisti, femministi, atei, abortisti, fumatori di marijuana socialisti, ballerini sporchi, giocatori d'azzardo, masturbatori, razzisti, Cameron, Clegg, elettori laburisti, abusatori, adulteri, evoluzionisti, epurati, terroristi, predicatori di prosperità,  NON EREDITERANNO IL REGNO DI DIO L'inferno attende tutti i peccatori; pentitevi o perirete. Il giudizio sta arrivando!Questa è una piccola e affascinante lista messa insieme da alcuni frequentatori della chiesa di persone che, secondo loro, non sono invitate al banchetto. Io vi compaio almeno sei volte. Il regno di Dio vuole essere un regno inclusivo, aperto a tutti. Se la Chiesa deve essere un segno efficace della presenza di Dio, allora deve anche essere inclusiva, in modo che ogni essere umano sia accolto, indipendentemente dalla razza, dalla classe, dal colore della pelle, dalla sessualità, dal credo o dalla mancanza di credo. Questa è certamente una sfida, ma ricordate che non siamo i guardiani o i custodi, siamo i cittadini del Regno. È ridicolo che questa parabola, 2000 anni dopo essere stata raccontata per la prima volta, sia ancora scandalosa per alcuni cristiani. Ed ecco che arriva l'avvertimento. “Ora il re entrò per vedere quelli che erano a tavola e notò là un uomo che non aveva l'abito di nozze.  E gli disse: “Amico, come sei entrato qui senza avere un abito di nozze?” E costui rimase con la bocca chiusa.  Allora il re disse ai servitori: “Legatelo mani e piedi [, prendetelo] e gettatelo nelle tenebre di fuori. Lì ci sarà pianto e stridor di denti”.  (v.11-13)Non indossa gli abiti adatti? Sembra un po' troppo severo. Il punto è che quando siete stati invitati al banchetto di nozze, i vestiti vi sono stati forniti gratuitamente. La Scrittura fa molti riferimenti al fatto che Dio ci veste con l'abito nuziale della salvezza - Isaia 61:10 è solo uno di questi. E l'Apocalisse fa riferimento al fatto che i giusti saranno rivestiti con le vesti della gloria - a proposito, la fine del mondo non avviene come un'apocalisse, ma come un banchetto di nozze. L'invitato alle nozze rifiutava non solo ciò che gli veniva offerto gratuitamente, ma anche di riconoscere la bellezza e il valore del suo invito. Dio chiama tutti al suo regno, a prescindere. Ma si aspetta anche che tutti vivano una vita degna della chiamata. Gli uomini e le donne che si presentano al banchetto con l'odio nella loro lista, gli uomini e le donne il cui amore è freddo o assente, potrebbero scoprire di essere quelli che non indossano l'abito accettabile.Come dice il teologo N.T. Wright"Non vogliamo sapere del giudizio sui malvagi e ancor meno degli esigenti standard di santità o delle conseguenze per noi. Ricordate che ciò che fate nel presente durerà nel futuro di Dio." (N.T. Wright)Sarete contenti che il nostro sguardo alla seconda parabola sarà molto più breve! Ma prima di tutto, spieghiamo perché Gesù ha raccontato questa parabola. I farisei hanno portato davanti a lui un uomo morente, i cui organi principali si stanno spegnendo, per vedere se Gesù lo guarirà - il problema è che è di sabato. Gesù guarisce l'uomo e si occupa di quella particolare sfida, poi viene invitato a cena dallo stesso gruppo di farisei. Notando che tutti fanno a gara per avere il posto migliore a tavola, ricorda loro con delicatezza che l'umiltà è un segno di santità e che la generosità verso chiunque si trovi ai margini della società sarà ricompensata da Dio."Uno degli invitati, udite queste cose, gli disse: «Beato chi mangerà pane[a] nel regno di Dio!»  Gesù gli disse: «Un uomo preparò una gran cena e invitò molti;  e all'ora della cena mandò il suo servo a dire agli invitati: “Venite, perché [tutto] è già pronto”.  Tutti insieme cominciarono a scusarsi. Il primo gli disse: “Ho comprato un campo e ho necessità di andarlo a vedere; ti prego di scusarmi”. Un altro disse: “Ho comprato cinque paia di buoi e vado a provarli; ti prego di scusarmi”. Un altro disse: “Ho preso moglie e perciò non posso venire”.  Il servo[b] tornò e riferì queste cose al suo signore. Allora il padrone di casa si adirò e disse al suo servo: “Va' presto per le piazze e per le vie della città, e conduci qua poveri, storpi, ciechi e zoppi”.  Poi il servo disse: “Signore, ciò che hai comandato è stato fatto[c] e c'è ancora posto”.  Il signore disse al servo: “Va' fuori per le strade e lungo le siepi e costringili a entrare, affinché la mia casa sia piena.  Perché io vi dico che nessuno di quegli uomini che erano stati invitati assaggerà la mia cena». “(Luca 14:15-24)Ecco quindi Gesù a cena e questa parabola è una "chiacchierata a tavola" piuttosto che una difesa formale delle sue azioni. Sapendo quello che sappiamo dei farisei e di tutti i loro schemi, siete sorpresi che Gesù accetti questo invito? Vale la pena di notare che era disposto a passare del tempo a parlare con coloro che gli erano ostili, oltre a tenere la compagnia più piacevole dei suoi discepoli e di coloro che lo accoglievano sinceramente, come i poveri e i bisognosi. In diverse altre occasioni leggiamo che fu invitato a mangiare in casa di un fariseo. Non esitò a farlo, anche se l'accoglienza fu di solito, come in questa occasione, molto dura e ostile, anche se a prima vista non sembra.“Uno degli invitati, udite queste cose, gli disse: «Beato chi mangerà pane[a] nel regno di Dio!»” (v. 15)Ho sentito descrivere questa frase come un "pensiero celestiale ma anche  una terribile supposizione". Ed è proprio questo il senso della parabola. Fu raccontata a un gruppo di persone che presumevano che la piena benedizione di Dio ricadesse su di loro, indipendentemente dalla loro vera motivazione o da ciò che avevano nel cuoreCome nella nostra parabola precedente, le persone furono invitate più volte a questo banchetto e l'invito stesso era un grande onore. Ma quando giunse il momento, si giustificarono.Il primo si scusò perché aveva appena comprato un campo e quindi, implicitamente, fece capire che la ricerca della sua futura ricchezza era più importante per lui che onorare l'ospite e prendere posto al banchetto. Il secondo si giustificò dicendo che aveva appena comprato cinque paia di buoi e doveva esaminarli per assicurarsi che fossero bestie sane. Ecco l'esercizio quotidiano di un'attività regolare. Per lui era molto più importante fare questo che occupare il posto d'onore al grande banchetto. Infine, il terzo aveva appena sposato una moglie e quindi, ovviamente, doveva essere scusato. La Legge di Mosè prevede che un uomo appena sposato possa essere esonerato dall'obbligo di prestare servizio militare per un anno. Tuttavia, tale disposizione potrebbe essere ragionevolmente estesa per scusare quest'uomo, all'ultimo minuto, dal breve tempo necessario per partecipare a un banchetto così importante? Era chiaramente giusto che egli onorasse la moglie e adempisse a tutta una serie di doveri domestici, ma usarli per giustificarsi dal banchetto significava mostrare disprezzo per l'organizzatore del banchetto e per il suo invito.Questi uomini sono stati onorati con un invito. A ciascuno di loro era stato ricordato. Ma, per il totale disprezzo di colui che ha dato il banchetto e il suo invito, nessuno di loro è venuto. Non c'è da stupirsi che abbiano richiamato l'ira e il giudizio del padrone del banchetto: “Perché io vi dico che nessuno di quegli uomini che erano stati invitati assaggerà la mia cena.”E non possiamo sederci qui oggi, nel 2022, e dire semplicemente: "Ma certo che Gesù sta parlando ai farisei e non a noi". No, proprio come loro non possiamo dare per scontato che saremo accolti a prescindere. Forse non vogliamo sentirci dire che il discepolato è costoso, che la santità non viene naturale, che questa vita cristiana non è facile o chiara. Dobbiamo renderci conto gli uni degli altri attraverso la comunione e la trasformazione spirituale. L'apostolo Pietro dice: “Perciò, fratelli, impegnatevi sempre di più a rendere sicura la vostra vocazione ed elezione, perché, così facendo, non inciamperete mai." (2 Pietro 1:10)Quante volte nelle nostre pratiche quotidiane, se non addirittura in teoria, ci scusiamo, come gli uomini della parabola, perché totalmente assorbiti dal nostro lavoro, o immersi indaffarati in questo mondo, o completamente presi dalle faccende di casa... con nostra grande perdita?Gente, il banchetto si sta preparando, l'accoglienza del cielo vi aspetta, aggrappatevi al vostro prezioso invito “con tutto il cuore, tutta l'anima, tutta la forza e tutta la mente" (Matteo 22:37) . E a proposito,  se avete una lista, disfatevene: "Ama il tuo prossimo come te stesso"(Matteo 22:39)Amen.GUARDA LE DIAPOSITIVE DEL MESSAGGIO---GUARDA IL VIDEO DEL MESSAGGIO IN HD

Psalm 20; Matt Clegg, Associate Pastor at RMC; the sixth sermon in our Summer Psalms (2022) series.

The Wanderer Anglo Saxon Heathenism

Reasonable Force A person may use such force as is reasonable in the circumstances for the purposes of (in the alternative): - self-defence; defence of another; defence of property; prevention of crime; lawful arrest. In assessing the reasonableness of the force used, prosecutors should ask two questions: was the use of force necessary in the circumstances, i.e. Was there a need for any force at all?; and was the force used reasonable in the circumstances? The courts have indicated that both questions are to be answered on the basis of the facts as the accused honestly believed them to be (R v Williams (G) 78 Cr App R 276), (R. v Oatbridge, 94 Cr App R 367). To that extent, it is a subjective test. There is, however, an objective element to the test. The jury must then go on to ask themselves whether, on the basis of the facts as the accused believed them to be, a reasonable person would regard the force used as reasonable or excessive. It is important to bear in mind when assessing whether the force used was reasonable the words of Lord Morris in (Palmer v R 1971 AC 814); "If there has been an attack so that self-defense is reasonably necessary, it will be recognised that a person defending himself cannot weigh to a nicety the exact measure of his defensive action. If the jury thought that in a moment of unexpected anguish a person attacked had only done what he honestly and instinctively thought necessary, that would be the most potent evidence that only reasonable defensive action had been taken ..." The fact that an act was considered necessary does not mean that the resulting action was reasonable: (R v Clegg 1995 1 AC 482 HL). Where it is alleged that a person acted to defend himself/herself from violence, the extent to which the action taken was a necessary will, of course, be integral to the reasonableness of the force used. In (R v O'Grady 85 Cr App R 315), it was held by the Court of Appeal that a defendant was not entitled to rely on, so far as self-defense is concerned, upon a mistake of fact that had been induced by voluntary intoxication.

👋 Sheryl Sandberg abandona Meta

2 de junio | Nueva YorkBuen trío. Bienvenido a La Wikly.Leer esta newsletter te llevará 7 minutos y 28 segundos.👋 Fin de cicloPor Emilio DoménechLo importante: Sheryl Sandberg anunció este miércoles su salida de Meta Platforms, compañía de la que ha sido directora de operaciones desde hace más de 14 años, cuando Facebook todavía no operaba en bolsa e Instagram no existía.Recuerda: Meta Platforma es el nuevo nombre de la compañía que opera Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger y Oculus.Explícamelo: la salida de Sandberg supone lo que Mark Zuckerberg ha definido como “el fin de una era” en la compañía. Meta Platforms tiene ahora objetivos diferentes a los de 2008, cuando Facebook ni siquiera tenía un modelo de publicidad.El desafío, por si no lo recuerdas, es ayudar a sentar las bases del metaverso, un nuevo capítulo más inmersivo en la historia de internet que sucederá a la era de los móviles en la que vivimos ahora.Contexto: en los últimos 14 años, Sandberg se ha convertido en una suerte de leyenda en Silicon Valley, desde donde ha ayudado a que Facebook sea el monstruo que es hoy en día:Primero, gracias a un modelo publicitario global que los ha puesto a la par de Google, empresa en la que Sandberg trabajaba antes de aceptar la oferta de Zuckerberg.Y segundo, asentando los éxitos financieros de Facebook al tiempo que Zuckerberg se centraba en las iniciativas de hacer un mejor producto y escalar el alcance de ese producto (las plataformas de Meta tienen más de 3.800 millones de usuarios mensuales activos).Cualquier startup con sueños de aspirar a ser la próxima Facebook quiere su propia Sandberg, una figura en la que un fundador “pueda confiar y tener a su lado para compartir algunas de las tareas más exigentes del día a día”, como han definido algunos expertos en el pasado. Pero no todo son luces.Sandberg también ha liderado durante mucho tiempo el equipo de política y comunicación de Facebook, navegando controversias que han sumido a la compañía en multitud de crisis públicas de las que todavía no han conseguido escapar.Por recapitular: la desinformación rusa en las presidenciales de 2016, la persecución de rohinyás en Myanmar y la filtración de Cambridge Analytica en 2018, o la publicación de The Facebook Papers en 2021 de la que ya te hablamos aquí y aquí.Sandberg perdió poder, influencia y prestigio tras esos escándalos. En la mayoría de casos, la compañía respondió a ellos tarde y mal, frustrando otras iniciativas paralelas de la compañía.¿Y ahora? La salida de Sandberg podría haberse producido en cualquier otro momento de los últimos años y pocos se habrían sorprendido. A esas polémicas cabe sumar las dificultades personales de Sandberg, que perdió a su marido en 2015.De hecho, es precisamente su boda este próximo verano con el productor televisivo Tom Bernthal y su familia con él una de las razones por las que Sandberg deja el puesto.La otra tiene que ver con sus iniciativas filantrópicas, incluidas sus fundaciones Lean In y Option B. Ambas comparten nombres con sus best-seller. El primero fue un alegato feminista para mujeres trabajadoras. El segundo, sobre cómo lidiar con la pérdida.Sandberg llevaba más de un año perdiendo poder en Facebook; incluso desde antes del cambio de rumbo hacia el metaverso, como bien apunta Casey Newton en su newsletter.Sandberg ya estaba cediendo responsabilidades a gente como Nick Clegg (presidente de asuntos globales fichado por ella), Marne Levin (directora comercial fichada por ella) y el español Javier Oliván (nuevo director de operaciones que ya estaba antes que ella).La idea de Zuckerberg es que las ramas de producto, crecimiento y publicidad operen de forma más integrada en el futuro con el liderazgo de Oliván, mientras que Clegg desempeñará las funciones de comunicación que Sandberg encabezó en el pasado.Menciono esos nombres porque serán importantes para el futuro de Meta Platforms conforme la compañía deja atrás estrategias y nombres de la era convulsa que arrastra desde 2016.Sandberg no es ni mucho menos un sacrificio, pero su marcha sin duda deja claro que un nuevo capítulo ha comenzado.Más información en The Verge, donde Sandberg ha dado una entrevista en la que, spoiler, tampoco dice demasiadas cosas interesantes. No cabe descartar un futuro político para ella, btw.🗣 Victoria de JohnnyLo importante: un jurado de Virginia dio una clara victoria al actor Johnny Depp en el juicio de difamación que le enfrentaba a su expareja, la actriz Amber Heard.El jurado también determinó que un exabogado de Depp hizo declaraciones difamatorias contra Heard en una entrevista con el tabloide británico The Daily Mail.Contexto: Depp denunciaba a Heard por una tribuna que la actriz escribió en The Washington Post y en la que se definió como “una figura pública que representa el abuso doméstico”, una declaración que parecía hacer referencia a su relación con Depp entre 2015 y 2016.El equipo de Depp se centró en desmontar las acusaciones de Heard, ofreciendo una ventana a una relación sentimental tóxica en la que las discusiones y el consumo de drogas y alcohol eran una constante.Explícamelo: el jurado concluyó que Heard se refería a Depp en su tribuna del Post, que mintió sobre haber sido abusada y que además lo hizo de mala fe, perjudicando a la carrera del actor. Tendrá que pagar 10 millones de dólares por daños y prejuicios.El jurado también determinó que la actriz tiene que pagar 5 millones de dólares en daños punitivos, una forma de sanción económica común en los juicios de corte civil. Pero Heard no tendrá que pagar tanto. La cifra está limitada a 350.000 dólares en el estado de Virginia.Por su parte, Depp tendrá que pagar 2 millones de dólares de indemnización compensatoria por los comentarios hechos por su exabogado.Más información en CNN.🇺🇦 Cohetes para UcraniaLo importante: Estados Unidos enviará por primera vez sistemas avanzados de cohetes a Ucrania como parte de un nuevo paquete de armamento valorado en 700 millones de dólares.El presidente estadounidense Joe Biden asegura que solo ha dado el sí al envío tras contar con el compromiso de su homólogo ucraniano Volodímir Zelenski de que su ejército no lanzará cohetes contra territorio ruso.Explícamelo: Biden sabe que está jugando un equilibrio peliagudo con el envío de armamento cada vez más pesado a Ucrania. El país invadido lleva semanas pidiendo sistemas más potentes de artillería para frenar los avances rusos en el Dombás, donde las fuerzas ucranianas siguen perdiendo terreno.Para evitar sustos, Biden ha evitado enviar cohetes o misiles de mayor alcance que puedan asestar golpes en partes más profundas del territorio ruso.¿Y ahora? El nuevo paquete incluirá solo cuatro HIMARS (Sistema de Cohetes de Artillería de Alta Movilidad) para los que los soldados ucranianos necesitarán un entrenamiento de tres semanas.Eso significa que el ejército ucraniano no podrá ponerlos a buen uso en combate hasta dentro de al menos un mes, teniendo en cuenta el envío, el entrenamiento y el despliegue al frente.Dentro del paquete de 700 millones, Estados Unidos también envía miles de misiles y armas antitanque, más munición de artillería, vehículos tácticos y cuatro helicópteros.Más información en The New York Times.🌍 Monitor globalBREAKING🚨🇺🇸 Cuatro personas, incluido el tirador, asesinadas en un ataque a un centro médico de Tulsa, dice la policíaThe New York Times(en inglés, 3 minutos)🇨🇳 Shanghai, capital financiera de China, reabre tras dos meses de confinamientoLa Vanguardia(en español; 6 minutos)🇩🇰 Dinamarca da un abrumador respaldo a su integración en la política de defensa de la UEEl País(en español, 5 minutos)🇹🇷 Protestas en Turquía contra el intento de silenciar al mayor grupo de denuncia de feminicidiosFrance 24(en español; 4 minutos)👾 En el DiscordUn retazo de Maricopa Land@blupwa comparte un hilo de Twitter para los amantes de las mascotas: “Es un hilo con emergencias graciosas sobre mascotas.

💰 EE. UU., oligarquía en potencia

23 de mayo | Nueva YorkLeer esta newsletter te llevará 11 minutos y 12 segundos.¿Has conocido a Anne? Bienvenido a La Wikly.🇺🇸 ¿País de oligarcas?Lo importante: una nueva decisión judicial del Tribunal Supremo este mes volvió a dejar claro el papel protagónico del dinero en las campañas electorales en Estados Unidos. Es solo un capítulo más de la política de un país cada vez más influenciada por los ricos.Muchos de los cuales son congresistas y senadores, como bien veremos más adelante.Explícamelo: el Supremo de mayoría conservadora dictaminó que los políticos en el cargo pueden reembolsar dinero que hayan prestado a sus campañas incluso después de haber ganado las elecciones; sin límites en la cifra.La decisión es controvertida, pero no sorprende vistas las decisiones que ha tomado el Supremo en ese contexto, especialmente ahora que seis jueces conservadores tienen el control ideológico de la corte.Contexto: la decisión más importante en ese término se remonta al año 2010, cuando el caso Citizens United v. Comisión Electoral Federal abrió la veda a que empresas, fundaciones o sindicatos tuvieran el poder de influenciar elecciones a golpe de talonario.A grandes rasgos, Citizens United permitió que grupos conocidos como Super PAC pudieran recibir cantidades ilimitadas de dinero que después invertir en campañas políticas de la forma en la que quisieran.Principalmente, los gastos van dirigidos a publicidad de defensa y ataque para ayudar o perjudicar a los candidatos de la elección de esas Super PAC. A veces, algunos grupos gastan decenas de millones de dólares para catapultar o enterrar a un candidato.La única condición importante es que esos grupos tienen prohibido coordinarse con las campañas de los candidatos, pero es algo que ciertos políticos están ignorando con iniciativas tan creativas como marcar en rojo en sus páginas web aquel contenido que quieren que sus grupos afines destaquen en sus inversiones publicitarias.¿Y ahora? Cada vez es más habitual ver a candidatos millonarios entrar en carreras políticas con el apoyo de su propia cuenta bancaria. Y si no son sus cofres, lo son los de sus socios millonarios que invierten millones de dólares en Super PAC paralelas.Lo vimos en las primarias republicanas al Senado por Ohio y por Pennsylvania, donde o bien había millonarios firmando cheques para sus campañas (Mike Gibbons, Mehmet Oz, Dave McCormick) o bien los firmaban otros por ellos (Peter Thiel, cofundador de PayPal, con J.D. Vance).Pero entonces, ¿qué es lo último que ha pasado?⚖️ Nueva ayuda judicialLa Corte Suprema de Estados Unidos avaló este mes la eliminación del límite que impone la normativa federal a los candidatos para recaudar fondos después de sus elecciones para devolverse el dinero que prestaron a su campaña.Es decir, los candidatos adinerados que prestan millones de dólares a sus propias campañas pueden obtener un cargo público y luego acudir a sus principales donantes para reponer las sumas que se prestaron en un primer lugar.La normativa hasta hace poco vigente se aprobó en 2002 como parte de la Ley Bipartidista de Reforma de Campañas. Lo que hacía era poner un tope de 250.000 dólares en la cantidad de dinero recaudado después de unas elecciones que las campañas pueden usar para pagar préstamos personales de los candidatos.El senador Ted Cruz, demandante en el caso, había argumentado que el límite de 250.000 dólares violaba la Primera Enmienda, restringiendo la libertad de expresión política sin preocupaciones de corrupción quid pro quo legítimas que la justifiquen.“El gobierno no puede identificar un solo caso de corrupción quid pro quo en este contexto. […] Y como asunto práctico, los préstamos personales a veces pueden ser la única forma en la que un candidato desconocido que desafía a alguien en un cargo público y conexiones limitadas puede potenciar el gasto de su campaña desde un primer momento”, escribió el presidente del Supremo John Roberts, de ideología conservadora, en su opinión mayoritaria.La defensa explicaba que los políticos pueden tener conflictos de interés una vez en el cargo. Si quieren recuperar el dinero prestado a su propia campaña antes de ganar su escaño, tienen la opción de pedir donaciones a cambio de votar de una forma u otra.“Reembolsar el préstamo de un candidato después de haber ganado unas elecciones no puede servir a los propósitos habituales de una contribución: el dinero llega demasiado tarde como para ayudar a cualquiera de sus actividades de campaña. Todo lo que hace el dinero es enriquecer al candidato personalmente en un momento en el que puede devolver el favor —por un voto, un contrato, un nombramiento. No hace falta ser un genio político para ver el riesgo elevado de corrupción”, escribió Elena Kazan, miembro progresista del Supremo, en su opinión minoritaria.Con esta última decisión, la Corte Suprema impulsa la capacidad de los donantes adinerados para enriquecer personalmente a los candidatos de su elección, incluidos a aquellos que invirtieron millones en sus propias campañas y siempre que acaben prevaleciendo el día de las elecciones.Si bien los donantes individuales todavía están sujetos al tope de contribución por elección (2.900 dólares por campaña en 2022), la decisión de la Corte Suprema significa que los candidatos pueden recaudar mucho más de ellos en conjunto para pagar sus propios préstamos.La decisión del tribunal es retroactiva, lo que significa que las campañas de este ciclo que tengan préstamos de candidatos podrán aprovechar las nuevas reglas después de sus elecciones. 95 candidatos a la Cámara y al Senado ya han prestado a sus campañas más de 250.000 dólares, según los registros de la Comisión Federal de Elecciones.En las primarias senatoriales de Pennsylvania, el famoso médico Mehmet Oz se enfrenta al financiador de cobertura David McCormick y a la exfuncionaria de la administración Trump Carla Sands. Oz ha prestado casi 15 millones de dólares a su propia campaña, mientras que McCormick prestó 11 millones y Sands aportó otros 3,9.En Arizona, el empresario republicano Jim Lamon le ha prestado a su campaña para el Senado 13 millones.En Alabama, el republicano Mike Durant prestó unos 2,6 millones a su campaña para el Senado.Y en Wisconsin, el demócrata Alex Lasry prestó a su campaña para el Senado más de 7 millones. Su principal oponente, Sarah Godlewski, ha prestado casi 3 millones a la suya.💸 Políticos acaudaladosQue haya candidatos con mucho dinero para poder desafiar a políticos en un cargo público, o acaso para optar a nuevos escaños abiertos por una jubilación o muerte, está lejos de ser novedad.Un estudio de Open Secrets reveló que el año pasado los candidatos a elecciones invirtieron un total de más de 100.000 millones de dólares en sus propias campañas electorales.Según estos datos, la mayoría de los candidatos autofinanciados de 2021 son republicanos. Registraron un total de 85,6 millones de autofinanciación en el año, en comparación con los 22,7 millones de los demócratas.En 2020, otro estudio de Open Secrets señalaba que más de la mitad de los miembros del Capitolio eran millonarios. La mediana del patrimonio neto de congresistas y senadores que presentaron declaraciones en 2019 es de poco más de 1 millón de dólares.Sin embargo, la enorme riqueza de algunos miembros del órgano contrastaba con la carencia de otros. Mientras que algunos legisladores todavía adeudaban préstamos estudiantiles, otros estaban pagando su tercera o cuarta hipoteca.Los líderes de ambas cámaras forman la lista de los 10 principales. La presidenta de la Cámara de Representantes, Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), ha visto aumentar su riqueza a casi 115 millones de dólares desde los 41 que tenía en 2004, el primer año en el que OpenSecrets comenzó a rastrear las finanzas personales.El líder de la mayoría del Senado, Mitch McConnell, vio aumentar su patrimonio neto desde 3 millones a más de 34 durante ese mismo periodo.🔭 ¿Y adónde vamos?Con la decisión de Citizens United y varias posteriores como la que nos trae aquí hoy, el Supremo estadounidense ha determinado que decidir dónde invertir dinero es una cuestión de derechos fundamentales. En concreto, de libertad de expresión.Por tanto, invertir dinero en campañas políticas, que es la cumbre del debate público, debe estar protegido a nivel constitucional.Esa perspectiva es y sigue siendo controvertida, sobre todo en un país donde la desigualdad económica es cada vez más rampante y el 1 por ciento acumula cada vez más riqueza.Y aunque ambos partidos han sabido aprovechar la proliferación de las Super PAC, ya hay estudios que han determinado que es el partido republicano el que mejores resultados ha logrado tras la decisión de Citizens United.La pregunta es, ¿será capaz Estados Unidos de entender y solucionar los problemas de la clase trabajadora cuando sus políticos son más ricos a cada ciclo electoral que concluye?¿Desea saber más? En The Atlantic tienen una columna interesante sobre lo que el movimiento progresista puede hacer para contrarrestar estas decisiones judiciales que juegan en contra de sus sueños por políticas más redistributivas. Y esta entrevista al catedrático Jeffrey Winters especializado en el estudio de la oligarquía es un buen plus a esta newsletter.🎬 Una recomendaciónCon la colaboración de FilminCosmópolis es una película canadiense de 2012 dirigida por David Cronenberg. Sigue el trayecto en limusina de un ejecutivo que quiere cortarse el pelo en su barbería de confianza, situada en la otra punta de la ciudad de Nueva York. Durante el recorrido, el capitalismo que lo enriqueció se desmorona a su alrededor.Robert Pattinson encabeza el reparto en el papel de Eric Packer. Fue la primera película puramente de autor del actor lejos de su periplo comercial con Harry Potter y Crepúsculo —uno que agradecemos hasta el día de hoy por habernos dado interpretaciones geniales en títulos como The Rover, La ciudad perdida de Z, Good Time o High Life.Cronenberg adapta la novela homónima de Don DeLillo, no exactamente su trabajo más aclamado pese a la reputación que le precede en Estados Unidos. Y esta película sufrió casi el mismo destino, pues la crítica la desplumó tildándola de aburrida, anodina y evidente.Pero por esa misma razón creo que Cosmópolis es tan interesante y puede disfrutarse desde una perspectiva menos analítica. No es tanto la ambición ni las pretensiones lo que fascina, sino la forma en la que lo presenta (qué forma de rodar en interiores) y la forma en la que lo narra (esas interpretaciones y esos diálogos desprovistos de vitalidad; esa comicidad seca y cruel).Me quedo con esta cita de Manohla Dargis para The New York Times, muy relevante en los tiempos que corren:“Tomada como un comentario sobre el estado del mundo en la era del tardocapitalismo (para empezar), Cosmópolis puede parecer obvia y casi banal. Pero estas banalidades, que están acompañadas por miradas vidriosas, también son la clave: el mundo está quemándose y todo lo que algunos de nosotros hacemos es ver las llamas con una familiaridad exhausta”.Cosmópolis está disponible en Filmin.🌐 Facebook concreta planesBy Marina EnrichLo importante: Nick Clegg, el presidente de asuntos globales de Meta, escribió un artículo la semana pasada exponiendo en unas 8.000 palabras qué significa el metaverso y por qué es relevante. Sí, igual no es la forma más efectiva de hacerlo cuando tienen como misión “acercar a la gente”, lol.Contexto: en octubre, Facebook anunciaba que iba a cambiar su nombre a Meta para representar el nuevo rumbo de la empresa hacia el metaverso.Es importante recordar que ese cambio se hizo en medio de una muy mala racha de imagen por falta de transparencia.Wait, ¿qué era el metaverso? El metaverso es una experiencia más inmersiva de internet. Incorpora la realidad virtual, pero no solamente eso. Hoy en día quienes más han desarrollado ideas del metaverso son juegos online como Roblox o Minecraft. Emilio tiene un vídeo hablando del tema.Las claves: Durante estos últimos meses, tanto Clegg como Mark Zuckerberg han desarrollado las siguientes ideas sobre el metaverso:El metaverso no es un producto como lo es Instagram. Es una infraestructura que no posee nadie y en la que todo el mundo debería poder desarrollar ideas —y es ahí dentro donde Meta desarrollaría productos.Meta no gobernará el metaverso, “igual que no hay un internet de Google, o un internet de Microsoft”, dice Clegg. Aunque con el poder que tienen estas grandes tecnológicas, es fácil argumentar que sí tienen un papel importante en la futura gobernanza.Los problemas de moderación continuarán. En el metaverso habrá los mismos problemas que tenemos en la vida real y Meta sigue sin plantear soluciones. Las reglas que habrá dependerán de la “sección” en la que estés dentro del metaverso.En 10-15 años, o quizá más, veremos el metaverso tal y como lo imaginan Clegg y compañía.El Presidente de Asuntos Globales de Meta ha planteado muchas preguntas sobre el metaverso y no ha resuelto tantas dudas. Está claro que es un gran reto, pero visto el pasado (y presente) de Meta, no se pueden permitir no ser más transparentes con sus planes de acción para lidiar con esos problemas.Además, tampoco ha hablado sobre los planes de monetización de Meta en el metaverso, pero como ya los sabemos (i.e. rastrear y elaborar perfiles para comercializar los datos), es muy difícil que no nos genere desconfianza.Pero bueno, como dice Clegg al acabar el artículo, el metaverso va a llegar, queramos o no. 🙃En otro orden de cosas, hoy ha vuelto Lunes por el mundo con novedades sobre la gira de Joe Biden en Asia, la caída de Mariúpol en Ucrania o los temporales que han devastado ciudades en India y Bangladesh, entre otros titulares internacionales.Puedes volver a ver el directo completo en Twitch.Feliz semana, This is a public episode.
