【特集】電気料金安くできるのか



現在、電力事業は、大手電力10社体制で事実上の地域独占となっている。それが、2000年から始まった規制緩和で新規事業者が参入可能となった。46社が参入し、安く電力を供給している。東京電力など電力会社の電気料金は、“統括原価方式”と呼ばれる計算方法で決められている。人件費や燃料費、広告費などをコストとして積み上げ、そこに決められた金額の利益を上乗せ。この総額によって電気料金が決まる。公益事業のため、法律によって一定の利益を確保する仕組みとなっている。一方、新規参入業者は、この統括原価方式を使わず、一般企業のように人件費や広告費などを削減し、安い料金を実現させている。しかし、国の規制があるため、契約対象は、企業や工場など大口利用者のみで、一般家庭とは契約できない。電気料金の値上げが取りざたされるなか、私たちに第2の選択肢はないのか。政府も検討を始めた。


これ、ちょこっとみた。賛成なのだが、報ステが、新規参入、規制撤廃をいっているのはちと驚いた。

電力会社だけではあるまい。

官僚・企業の既得権益維持・拡大のための無駄・非効率的な事業、独占事業をメディアはどんどん摘発していくべきだ。

市場・競争原理になじまないものが一部あることは認めた上で、原則として、競争原理を導入し、競争を歪める政官業の癒着および規制をもっと摘発してくべきだ。

日本で徹底したネオリベはなじまない。そこで、官から民へ、その他で浮いたお金を弱者や子供の保育、若者の教育に費やすべきだ。

無能な官僚と政治家、それに寄生して私腹を増やす企業家を太らす必要はない。

Violent Anti-Roma Demonstrations Spread Across Bulgaria

動画


The hit-and-run killing of a teenager blamed on the criminal underworld has sparked violent protests across Bulgaria against the Roma community and the government for its failure to deal with organised crime.

Police have arrested 200 people during protests since Friday when Angel Petrov, 19, was killed near the city of Plovdiv in central Bulgaria.

Properties have been set on fire and cafes ransacked by rioters, while police have acted to prevent attacks on Roma districts and mosques in a number of cities.

Australia’s First Indigenous Woman MP Quits Over Racial Taunts


The first indigenous woman to serve in any Australian parliament has announced she is leaving politics after being called a “toxic coconut.”

Carol Martin told the Labor Party leader in Western Australia she will not run in 2013 for the state parliament, The West Australian reported.

Martin has represented the Kimberley, a vast region in the north of the state, since 2001.

Martin and other indigenous leaders were called “toxic coconuts” in a newsletter put out by opponents of a natural gas distribution hub near Broome in the Kimberley, The Australian reported.

The newsletter said she was “brown on the outside and full of the milk of white man’s money.”

Hate Crime Alleged In Attack On Latino Man


A 42-year-old Kent man was charged Monday with second-degree assault and malicious harassment for allegedly beating a Latino man last week in what prosecutors allege was a racially motivated attack.

Kurt Randall Madsen was arrested early Thursday and is being held in the King County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail, according to jail records. He is to be arraigned Oct. 10.

Madsen and the Latino man were drinking together behind the Applebee’s restaurant at 25442 104th Ave. S.E. and argued after Madsen began making racial slurs, according to charging documents.

A co-worker of the Latino man ― both worked in the restaurant ― separated the men.

Madsen, who was intoxicated, was denied service in the restaurant and went out to the parking lot, where he confronted the Latino man and accused him of being “an illegal immigrant.”

Madsen is accused of punching the man repeatedly in the face until he fell to the ground, then straddling the man and slamming his head into some rocks, the papers say.

French police round up Roma ahead of vote
(AFP) – 23 hours ago



MARSEILLE, France ― French police on Tuesday rounded up more than 160 members of the Roma minority from a camp in Marseille, sparking the ire of rights groups some six months ahead of presidential elections.
President Nicolas Sarkozy is expected to make security a central theme of his re-election campaign next year, and last year provoked international outrage by targeting foreign-born Roma for expulsion.
Around 150 police took part in the latest round-up of a group that included children and babies, clearing an illegal encampment that local authorities regarded as unsightly and unhygenic.
The purpose of the round-up was not to expel the Roma, but some of 161 detained could be sent back to Romania or Bulgaria if they cannot show how they can support themselves, while others will be offered alternative housing.
There was no violence, but the local head of the Human Rights League, Bernard Eynaud, criticised the raid as "aggressive".
"There are two Roma camps left in Marseille. This one, which is old, houses children at school. Once more, they will be split up and the children will not be able to go to school today," Eynaud said.
He accused the town hall of reneging on an August offer for a negotiated solution, declaring: "Today the only answer they have is the police."
The families were living in caravans and corrugated iron and wooden huts next to a railway line.
"An emergency housing solution has been offered to all those living in the camp," a police official said, asking not to be named.

Uncontrolled immigration is destroying Britain's literacy
By ABHIJIT PANDYA
Last updated at 12:34 AM on 27th September 2011



Migration figures support the fact that there are significant numbers of new arrivals from countries that have very poor numerical and verbal literacy rates. Many of the states of origin of new migrants have no system of cohesive curricula and very few schools that actually function effectively.
Thus there are a bulk of children in the UK today that can get very little early direction towards, both numerical and verbal, literacy from their parents. The burden of educating these folk now falls squarely and unfairly on British tax-payers, at the expense of their own children that continue to be squeezed out from schools, particularly those surrounding inner city migrant ghettos.

Countering Slurs: Hollywood’s Anti-Arab Propaganda

28. SEP, 2011





Fordson High School is a secondary school in Dearborn, Michigan. At times Dearborn has been a victim of hostility toward its Muslim community. The city has the largest concentration of Arabs outside of the Middle East.

The school and its football (American football) team is the setting for the new film “Fordson: Faith, Fasting, Football”.

In recent years, Fordson’s team faced a range of challenges, from racial slurs hurled at them while playing to being falsely accused of being terrorists.

The film, about Faith (Islam), Fasting (Muslims during Ramadan) and Football (the film’s setting), premiered on September 9th, two days before the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

The team had to train during Ramadan, and in order to fast for the month, they set their practice times from 11 pm to 4 am.

Paul Brunick, reviewing the film for the New York Times, notes that “…sound bites of unidentified but recognizable talk radio and cable news mainstays are the kind of provocations regularly criticized by media watchdogs.”

A narrator in the film says, “We’ve been called many names: an Islamic School, an Arabic School, a Hezbollah High School, camel jockeys, damn Arabs, towel heads, sand niggers.”

One of the students comments, “It’s real hate; you can feel it
.” But they’re young, they’re football players and they want to win, not just on the football field but as Arab Americans.

Says the narrator, “But when all of this hatemongering is mashed together with a sweeping orchestral march, the individual instances of bigotry are transformed into something larger: a glimpse of how monstrous our post-9/11 hysteria may appear to future students of American history.”

In the film, residents of Dearborn react to the events of 9/11. One man says, “Please God, don’t let them be Arabs” about those who flew the planes into the twin towers.

Another reflects, “We were hit twice; once by Osama bin Laden and second by those who associated us with Osama bin Laden.”

Very few films or TV programmes portray Arabs in a favourable light. Those that do need to counter the negative images reflected in the bigotry of a century in Hollywood.

Films like Oscar nominated “Syriana” and “Kingdom of Heaven,” which display Arabs and Muslims as people rather than stereotypes, can help break down the image that has been built up for years.

As Professor Emeritus Jack Shaheen made clear in his landmark study Reel Bad Arabs and his documentary based on the book, Hollywood has a long and reprehensible record of vilifying Arabs.

Latinos Continue To Be (Illegally) Told, 'Show Me Your Papers!'
A number of states have passed 'Show me your papers' laws, but it's not legal to enforce them until the courts weigh in. That's not stopping police.
September 27, 2011 |



Saul Razcon was driving on Tuscon’s I-10 when he was stopped by the Arizona Highway patrol in August 2010, ostensibly for a broken window. He was asked for his driver’s license. However, the officer proceeded to ask for the license of the passenger driving with him in his car. Then, he asked the three young girls who were present with them in the backseat – aged 11, 13 and 17 – if they had “papers.”

Jamie Juarez’s stepdaughter’s friend was scared and simply did what a good girl should do: she told a highway patrol officer the truth when she was asked questions. As a result, she was deported back to Mexico along with her friend.

Study: What You Wear Can Influence How People Perceive Your Race

What you wear can influence how others view you ― specifically what they perceive your race to be, a new study finds.

The findings show how stereotypes and prejudices play a powerful role in how we mentally categorize people, says Jon Freeman, lead author of the study and a doctoral candidate in psychology at Tufts University.

The researchers, a group of psychologists and sociologists from Tufts, Stanford University and University of California, Irvine, asked study participants to determine the race of computerized faces wearing high-status attire (a business suit) or low-status attire (a janitor’s jumpsuit).

Faces viewed in high-status attire were more likely to be seen as white and faces viewed in low-status attire were likely to be seen as black.

UK Racist Killer Apologizes To Victim’s Mother Over Facebook Abuse

Mother of murdered teenager Anthony Walker has received an apology from one of his killers after racist abuse was posted on a social media site.

Gee Walker said Paul Taylor had contacted her to say that he did not write the abuse which appeared on his Facebook profile in August.

She said Taylor wrote that he knew she had “suffered enough and didn’t want to bring me any more pain”.

In the letter, he also offered to meet her but she said she was “not ready”.

Paul Taylor and Michael Barton were jailed for life in 2005 for the racist murder of Anthony Walker.

Walker died as a result of an ice axe being swung “at him with such force that its end smashed through his skull and was embedded in his brain” . He was only 18.

Update: Three Greeks Face Trial For Attacks On Asians & Africans

Three people went on trial in Athens Tuesday in a rare criminal case against xenophobic violence and the first charges related to a series of vicious attacks on Asian and African migrants in the Greek capital.

The trial of a 44-year-old woman and two men aged 31 and 47 was adjourned to 12 December. They are charged with group assault and causing serious injury in connection with the Sept. 16 stabbing of a 24-year-old Afghan asylum-seeker.

Each charge carries a possible prison term of three months to five years on conviction. This is the first trial of this nature since 1999 when a Greek man was given two life sentences for shooting nine migrants.

“The fact that these people have been brought to trial is positive,” said Giorgos Tsarbopoulos, head of UNHCR’s office in Greece. “It takes courage for foreign victims to go to the police since many feel they will be attacked again.”

Feds Sue Over Alleged Racial Discrimination In New York Apartment Rentals


Loventhal, Goodman and Velasco were caught red-handed by African-American and white “testers” sent to the red-brick, 72-unit building near W. 238th St. to inquire about empty apartments, the suit alleges.

Velasco refused to give a black tester a rental application on April 8, 2009, but hours later provided a white tester with an application, according to the suit.

On April 29, 2009, he allegedly told an African-American tester that the building had no available apartments, but the same day showed an empty apartment to a white tester.

On May 8 and Nov. 18, 2009, Velasco steered away African-American testers while offering apartments to white testers at discounts, according to the suit.

Accused Thai Killers: “Australians Are Racist”

Two Thai men accused of murdering good Samaritan Luke Mitchell claim they cannot get a fair trial in Victoria because of racism.

Surad Seehaverchart, 29, and Thatiya Terdputham, 36, are fighting extradition over the 2009 killing of Mr Mitchell, 29, who was stabbed five times after he broke up a fight outside a Brunswick nightclub.

Mr Seehaverchart told a Bangkok court yesterday he was happy to stand trial in Thailand but did not want to be returned to Australia, because he had been called a “stupid Asian” and had heard reports of many racist attacks.

Asians have to stay low profile to avoid being bullied in Australia,” he told judges in Ratchada Criminal Court.

He said he had been a student at Taylor College in Melbourne.

He flew back to Thailand soon after Mr Mitchell was killed and was arrested several months later.

He denied running away.

Asked why he wanted to stand trial in Thailand, he said: “Because I’m Thai. If I’m found guilty, I’d like to be punished in Thailand.”

Asked by one of the three judges what he was afraid of, he replied: “I understand the procedures in the Thai court. I’d like to prove my innocence to a Thai court only.”

He and Mr Terdputham, dressed in orange prison garb and with heavy metal chains on their legs, denied killing Mr Mitchell, a chef from Sanctuary Lakes.

After yesterday’s final witness hearing, they told reporters the person who stabbed the Melbourne chef two years ago was a third Thai man yet to be arrested, who is reportedly the son of an influential military officer.

“We did not kill him. The one who did, he’s away – he’s still on the run,” Mr Terdputham said after the judges had left the court.

SA Journalist Arrested In New Zealand For ‘Looking Like A Drug Dealer’, White Peers Claim Racism

New Zealand police arrested and strip searched a black South African rugby journalist drinking with white colleagues in a pub because he “fitted the profile of a drug dealer”.

Vata Ngobeni, who works for the Pretoria News newspaper and acts as an analyst for South Africa’s national broadcaster SABC, was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning and taken to a police station where he was strip searched.

When he tried to explain that he was a journalist on tour covering the Springboks’s performance in the Rugby World Cup, which New Zealand is hosting, he was told they were following standard procedure when they spot someone who fits “the profile of a drug dealer”.

The reality? I live in Shibuya and there are protest marches ‘every weekend’ by large groups of Japanese citizens who want Chinese and Korean people to leave Japan. I repeat: they march ‘every’ weekend. And the protest groups are not just old angry men, it also has young, attractive women/housewives, teens, a full cross section of Japanese people. So, compared to korean & chinese foreigners, we are in heaven. Still, I think it’s important to remember that even though most Japanese don’t even care if we are here or not, there ‘are’ a large number that would prefer we were just visitors and not residents.

The latest Global @dvisor survey conducted in 23 countries shows that only Russians are more likely than Britons to agree that there are too many immigrants in their country (77% do so). Other countries with similarly high levels of agreement are Belgium (72%), Italy (67%), Spain (67%) and South Africa (66%). The Japanese are the happiest with their current level of immigration – just 15% think there are too many immigrants.
