"The couple bought their new mansion for 15million in a private, off-market sale, The Sun reports. The previous owner had performed an extensive renovation on the property, meaning up until this point Pippa and James have had to do very little renovating."

-I wonder about this sale, because it seems like a lot of money and it wasn't listed so other people could buy it.
-It probably contributes to inflation because it's not maybe the right price exactly that the house is sold for.
-This seems like questionable business practices.

Saint Petersburg was founded in 1703. The men are tall and handsome. They walk around speaking Russian and looking like Vikings. They wear blue Russian navy coats on the trains. Their skin is green, even. The nightclubs are open until about 4am in the morning. At night the bridges are closed and so you kind of have to stay out really late and you can't get home until the morning.
Over here in Washington, DC...
Alex Ovechkin is from Moscow. It is so obvious on television and in every newspaper that he needs dental work. His front top teeth, a long time ago he lost that tooth and he won't either get an implant or something to make it so the other teeth grow right. And then Anastasia brings their two small kids to the hockey games. They sit up in the box seats. The games are at night and then, I guess, they have to drive all of the way back to their home in rural Virginia. It's difficult to watch the hockey games because everyone is thinking about Anastasia and Alex's two small children in those box seats.
The embassy of Uzbekistan is in a large building near DuPont Circle. It's not always clear about that building and how it is managed.

[WASHINGTON - The Pentagon's top general told congressional investigators scrutinizing the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol that he has become a "lightning rod for the politicization of the military," decrying critics who have sought to "smear" him and the Defense Department's other senior leaders. Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, offered the assessment during a remarkable portion of his discussion with the House select committee in November of that year. The panel in recent days released Milley's interview transcript along with dozens of other documents as its work drew to a close.] (January 5, 2023)

The British intelligence people sometimes argue with me about diplomatic etiquette. And then Kate will show up to a formal dinner wearing a ball gown with her shoulders bare.

Anastasia can bring the kids to the hockey games.
Kate can show off her bare shoulders at dinner.
And the Tashkent diplomats can be mean to me when I ask them something.
I'm alright if we don't have this phone call today.

This one is about Jakarta.
There have been reports about the German navy near Jakarta.

"Writing in the Daily Mail, Richard Eden reveals that the Princess of Wales's sister and her investment banker husband are planning to dig up the walled garden at their Berkshire home. They hope to replace it with a large 82 ft x 19 ft swimming pool, which Eden dubs 'more than twice the size of a typical private pool' and which rivals that of two nearby leisure centres in the county. The lawn alongside the pool will also be dug up, with plans to replace it with an AstroTurf tennis court, 'to enable safe playing conditions all year round', while the potting shed for the current kitchen garden will be transformed into changing rooms." [...]
"Eden previously revealed that the couple had purchased the 32-room Georgian property and its 150 acres for 15 million in July last year, having sold their five-floor Chelsea home (reportedly complete with six en-suites, a gym, an underground cinema and staff room) for 22.5 million. The main house at their Berkshire property, which underwent an extensive multi-million-pound restoration at the hands of a previous owner, is Grade II-listed, as is the walled garden, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near ancient woodland. This means the pair need to secure planning permission before they can push ahead with the project."

-Here, if James is an investment banker then he seems to have a lot of free time for home renovations. Maybe he just takes the money from his investment bank and uses that for the home renovations.
-Second, I wonder if he's like rowdy and belligerent because what if people don't want to give him the planning permission he needs?

Notes on James Matthews

The Germans are using Croatian ports for their navy maybe. Zagreb is reporting price increases. That might mean there is inflation throughout Croatia. The news reports mention the Euro as a currency. Maybe the Germans think they can send their navy where Euro is used. Albania, Croatia, and Bosnia all have strategic ports on the Mediterranean Sea. Maybe the Germans send their navy to all three countries and they use those ports. Today, anyway, there are reports in the Serbian news about prices in Croatia.
The Syrian desert seems to be used for German military testing. The Russians have reported chemical munitions in Syria. Also, there are reports about Israeli airstrikes near Damascus. The Turkish army crosses the border into northern Syria presumably because of the PKK. These are counterterrorism or security operations. The complaint is that Ankara holistically ignores the border with Syria.
Similarly, there are reports about the Turkish border with Bulgaria. Maybe the Germans send border fence items to both Ankara and Sophia. The Germans might employ labor unions to police this border. It has been suggested that the Turks don’t enforce their side of the border with Bulgaria. Both the Turkish border with Syria and the Turkish border with Bulgarian are in the news. It seems likely that the Germans do provide the borders with fence items.
The Bulgarian parliament is in the news. It’s possible that the German security services are cyberattacking the Bulgarian parliament. There are strange reports because it is as though the parliament cannot find a majority. The BSP behaves strangely sometimes. Maybe the Germans have the means to influence the Bulgarian legislature.

Complaints were made by the citizens due to price increases made by certain merchants disguised by the introduction of the Euro.

Plenkovic pointed out that the introduction of the Euro is not the reason for the increase in the prices of goods and services.

This is the main version on which the Bulgarian and Turkish investigators are working, prosecutor Doychin Doychev, administrative head of the Yambol District Prosecution Office (Southeastern Bulgaria), told the media on Tuesday. He took part in a joint coordination meeting with representatives of the Turkish authorities, held at the Kapitan Andreevo border control checkpoint so that the two sides could exchange information on the investigation.

The Border Police officer, Sergeant Petar Bachvarov, was shot dead while patrolling the border with Turkiye, near the village of Golyam Dervent. A Turkish national was detained for the killing.

[Michael Matthews, age 22, of London, England, lost his life on May 13, 1999, while descending to Camp 4 from the summit of Mt. Everest. Mike was wearing a red Northface Himalayan down suit. There as black trim on the shoulders and knees, and he would have been wearing a Russian oxygen system with perhaps a "UK" or American bottle (UK or American bottle is about twice as large as the orange Russian bottles) and was a grey-blue color. His boots were black One-Sport boots with yellow trim. His ice axe was a silver color and was made of metal. We have reason to believe that Mike was approximately 200-300 meters above the balcony when he lost his life. Mike's picture with what he was wearing that day is here. Mike was the youngest climber to ever reach the Summit of Everest from the UK. As you can see clearly, Babu's "stuff" is in the background. There is no doubt Mike reached the Summit. The above is part of what we published per the requests of the family and expedition with the hope that other climbers would see Mike's body on Everest in later years. Despite the requests and investigations, Mike's body has never been found. Mike's father, David Matthews, has threatened and considered taking legal action against the guiding company, OTT Expeditions, after the Everest Expedition. He has made his feelings pretty widely known. The movie about Mike's death is due to be played tonight on TV in the UK. It has been reported the family is now considering filing suit against four of the guides on the OTT expedition that year, one of which went home early on the expedition due to illness. The family and the family's lawyers have been in contact with EverestNews.com since the accident. The family seems to believe the guides let Mike down that day on Everest. EverestNews.com released the News on May 15th 1999 with a statement from the OTT Expedition and the Matthews' family. Daily News: 5/15/99 Report 12:35 PM EST Everest Takes another life: The following release has been made by the Matthews family and OTT Expeditions to EverestNews.com. "Michael Matthews, aged 22, was lost presumed dead whilst descending from the summit of Mount Everest on the afternoon of 13th May 1999. Although he never held it as an ambition he was the youngest Briton to reach the summit of Everest. He was a keen mountaineer who had successfully climbed Mount Aconcagua in Argentina in January of this year and whose previous climbing experience included the Swiss Alps, the Pyrenees and Kilimanjaro in Kenya. He wanted to follow Everest with an attempt on Mount Vincent. Michael was educated at Uppingham School. He worked as an equity options trader in the City of London. He leaves behind his parents, David and Jane, his two brothers, James (23) and Spencer (10) and his married sister, Nina Mackie, all of whom are quite inconsolable over the loss of Michael Robert Matthews (4th March 1977- 13th May 1999.) Michael had been climbing with OTT Expeditions. The family wish to thank members of the Team for their courage and determination shown on the descent in Atrocious weather conditions."]

This is saying that James has two brothers and a sister. One of his brothers died in a climbing accident. James' dad once got into a racecar accident and a different driver died. Maybe they are Prussians because they are into these kinds of recreational activities. (January 3, 2023)


The Virginians want their covert operations jobs to be, no reading or writing, in the building day and night, and aim the loudspeaker at the civilian agents who write the reports. The whole time they are working in coordination with the Pentagon. (January 3, 2023)

At the invitation of Karl Nehammer, the Bulgarian president is the only state leader invited to this year's edition of the traditional New Year's concert of the Vienna Philharmonic in the Golden Hall of the Musikverein. The two leaders highlighted during the warm-up the good cooperation between Bulgaria and Austria and discussed the European migration and asylum policy before the European Council on February 9 and 10. Rumen Radev stressed that the protection of the external European borders requires even closer cooperation between European countries, as well as targeted technical and financial support from the EU. The President also reminded that Bulgaria has made substantial investments in the improvement of the protection of its borders and this has been confirmed by all the missions of the European Union. For his part, the Federal Chancellor of Austria - Karl Nehammer expressed his appreciation for the invitation accepted by the Bulgarian head of state to visit Vienna to continue the bilateral dialogue and highlighted Austria's desire to strengthen cooperation with our country in the protection of the EU's external borders to deal with illegal migration. In his words, Europe cannot afford tens of thousands of unregistered migrants to cross the territory of EU member states. The high number of illegal migrants also represents a serious problem for the security of the entire European Union, for which more support is needed for the countries guarding the external borders of the Union and exposed to migratory pressure, including Bulgaria. Chancellor Karl Nehammer is scheduled to visit Bulgaria on January 23, where he will familiarize himself with the measures taken by our country to protect the borders of the EU. Nehammer stressed that Bulgaria has made a lot of efforts to strengthen the protection of the external European borders to counter the increased migratory pressure, and our country should also receive greater financial support from the EU to improve the border fence, as well as to increase the presence of Frontex. During his visit to Austria, the head of state Rumen Radev also spoke with the federal president Alexander Van der Bellen and held a meeting with the minister of foreign affairs of India Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, the press release of the Bulgarian presidency also states.] The Bulgarian news is reporting on Vienna.

The surveillance teams are inappropriate with the women civilian agents. They watch them in their apartments with the police radios. Maybe they have formed a weird fraternity because they are Prussians. The surveillance teams don't read or write during their shifts. They say they are providing security, but they sit and stare at the women even while they are asleep. Maybe they are a policemen group, but they resemble the Duke lacrosse team or the Yale Skulls.

How Pippa will get a title to rival sister Kate after engagement PIPPA Middleton will finally get an aristocratic title to rival older sister Kate following her engagement to the fabulously wealthy son of a Scottish Laird, Express.co.uk can reveal. The 32-year-old sister of the Duchess of Cambridge will one day become Lady Glen Affric and have access to a sprawling 10,000-acre Scottish estate after marrying nobleman James Matthews. Mr Matthews, a super-rich hedge fund manager, is the son of David Matthews, the Laird of Glen Affric, who owns an historic castle 15 miles from world-famous Loch Ness in the Scottish highlands. He will inherit the title upon his father's death, until which time Pippa will be able to use the courtesy title of Mrs Matthews of Glen Affric the younger, bestowed upon her as the heir's wife. She will be able to use the title anywhere in the Commonwealth, such as Australia or Canada, but it is thought she is unlikely to do so given the recent down to earth portrayal of Mr Matthews as the grandson of a coal miner. David Matthews, a former mechanic, is thought to have acquired the hereditary title, which is largely ceremonial, when be bought the magnificent Glen Affric estate in 2008. The aristocratic connection was unearthed by Australian art historian Michael Reed, who said the Matthews family "keep to themselves" but that "they know how to play the royal game". He said: "You've certainly got this Matthews family who own this huge baronial castle." The aristocratic title has a long and rich history and even comes with its own red and green tartan, which Mr Matthews could opt to wear at what will be a star-studded wedding. Sprawling Glen Affric Lodge also has its very own royal connection with the Queen's grandmother, Mary, having stayed at the estate in the late 19th century. And Mr Mathews, who is chief executive of London-based Eden Rock Capital Management Group, went to Eton College like Pippa's brother-in-laws William and Harry. Miss Middleton and Mr Matthews, 40, announced their engagement yesterday following a whirlwind romance of less than a year. And Mr Matthews is already strongly involved in the family business, with Glen Affric Lodge being used to host hunting parties whilst the family live in London. Visits to the estate cost 11,880 for a three night stay for up to eight people or 17,880 for a party of 16. It has also been used for television work, most notably when David Beckham stayed there whilst filming an advert for Haig Club whisky back in 2014. As first son and heir Mr Matthews is listed as the "solitary managing director" of Beaufort Glen Affric Ltd - a title he has held since 2007. Documents lodged with Companies House list the company's assets as the 10,000 acre "sporting estate" which hosts tourist parties for "hunting, trapping and related services". His younger brother, Spencer Matthews, is a notorious socialite who shot to fame as a suave ladies man on the television show Made in Chelsea. Miss Middleton and Mr Matthews are expected to get married next year in what will be the most highly anticipated society wedding since her sister, Kate, wed Prince William in 2011. Announcing their engagement the happy couple said: "Miss Pippa Middleton and Mr James Matthews are delighted to announce they became engaged on Sunday 17th July and plan to marry next year."

-Pippa hasn't worked much. This says she wrote cookbooks and she worked in event planning. That doesn't make much money, usually. So, it's not as though Pippa has money that she herself has earned.

[Pippa Middleton Is About to Marry Into a Family With Major Money Spoiler alert: her future husband is quite successful Pippa Middleton may not be marrying into the royal family, but in a matter of just a few days, she'll have wealthy and respected new relatives all her own. Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton's younger sister is set to walk down the aisle on Saturday to her fiance James Matthews, a former race car champion-turned-hedge fund manager. It's no question that Middleton can certainly support herself-she's authored cookbooks, written as a columnist, benefitted from trust funds handed down by her great-grandmother and worked in the family party-planning business, Party Pieces, which is reportedly worth millions of its own. However, when she becomes Mrs. Matthews, she'll also come into contact with her husband's self-made fortune. After achieving a level of success in the racing world, Matthews entered the finance world as a trader in 1995 and soon assumed major status as co-founder of Eden Rock Capital Management in 2001, where the 41-year-old remains CEO today. The firm reportedly managed over 1 billion worth of investments by 2007. "His stake in Eden Capital and the money he potentially has taken out over the last 16 years could make him a demi-billionaire or close to a billionaire on his own merits," David Friedman, co-founder at WealthQuotient, told E! News. However, that estimation is also reliant on other factors like the market and his fees. While the company has come under fire as of late for alleged association with some scandals overseas, Matthews is also linked to a tremendous family fortune. As Friedman said, "To characterize James wealth, one must look at two core areas: family wealth and Eden Capital." Before a racing career of his own, Matthews' father David Matthews began as a coal miner and apprentice mechanic. After nearly a decade of racing, he built up a successful car dealership, Kirkby Central Group, before retiring and turning his attention to the hotel business. In 1995, he became owner of the Eden Rock in St. Barts, which has since become an A-list luxury destination, serving the likes of Beyonce and Leonardo DiCaprio. He also has the 10,000-acre Glen Affric Estate in Scotland to his name. The sprawling property also comes with a title—one James is set to inherit upon his father's death. That title-Laird of Glen Affric-has a matching moniker for Matthews' spouse, who will be Lady Glen Affric. While the title serves more for logistical description of the property owners than for everyday use, we don't think Pippa will mind when she can call 10,000 acres one of her vacation spots.]

https://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/who-are-pippa-middletons-new-in-laws/CY6Y5MR7ICMBTYB5X7UUZ2Q7CY/ Who are Pippa Middleton's new in-laws? Panicking about the table plan, fretting over the final dress fitting, obsessively checking the weather... with just three weeks to go, Pippa Middleton will be getting the same pre-wedding jitters as any bride-to-be. But with two future Kings, her Duchess sister and a smattering of Lords, Earls and A-listers on the guest list, it's fair to assume Pippa, 33 - who marries boyfriend James Matthews, 41, on May 20 - will be most concerned about how everyone's going to get on. While the Middletons have their own black sheep in Gary Goldsmith - he of Ibiza party house La Maison de Bang Bang fame - the Matthews family has a few colourful characters of its own. Pippa, meet your in-laws... James' younger brother Spencer, with their mother Jane, at Wimbledon. Photo / Getty Images The groom's glamorous mother, 69-year-old Jane Matthews, grew up in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, where she enjoyed a privileged childhood. Her father, Robert 'Spenny' Parker, was a sports-mad architect and something of a wild child who passed on his bohemian attitude to Jane and her siblings, Pamela and Paul. Sporty and popular, Jane was voted carnival queen by fellow undergrads at South Africa's prestigious Rhodes University and rode through the streets on a gold throne atop a motorised float. Aged 21, she graduated in Fine Art and won a scholarship to the Rijks Academy in Amsterdam. When her ferry stopped in England, she hopped off on a whim - and ended up staying for good. Jane settled in London and worked as a receptionist at Christian Dior while pursuing a course at the Slade School of Fine Art. It was then she met Dave, James's father, recently divorced, who had spotted an old photograph of her in a yearbook belonging to his sister-in-law, Lu, another Rhodes graduate. He got her number, turned up to meet her in a Ferrari Daytona - and that was that. They married in the early Seventies, a low-key register office affair to which Jane wore an old brown sweater and a skirt. A celebration in Zimbabwe followed, where her father turned up two hours late, riding a donkey. Their first child, James, was born in 1975, followed by Michael in 1977 and Spencer in 1988. As her husband's business ventures flourished, they upgraded from their bungalow in his home town of Rotherham to a 30-acre, 18th-century estate in rural Lincolnshire, before moving to Paris, then Monaco. In 1995, they decided to buy a dilapidated hotel on the idyllic island of St Barths. Today, Jane splits her time between London and the Caribbean, while Eden Rock - where the priciest suite costs 25,000 a night - is now a celebrity haunt, with guests including Beyonce, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. Super-stylish, impeccably groomed and with a penchant for pricey designers, Jane is well used to mingling with the rich and famous. So she'd have felt quite at home when she and Dave were introduced to Prince William and Kate over dinner at James and Pippa's 17 million London home. EX-RACER DAD Son of a coal miner, Dave Matthews's origins are less illustrious than his wife's sun-kissed upbringing. He and brother Bob had a modest, happy childhood in a village near Rotherham and, on leaving school, he started work as an apprentice mechanic at his father Wallace's garage. Aged 19, Dave started selling cars door-to-door and, in his spare time, indulged his love of motor racing at the local track. A skilled petrol head, he became division champion in the British Touring Car Championships in 1971. But his dream ended in August 1973 in a catastrophic accident during a race at Silverstone. His car flipped at 130mph, killing one driver, critically injuring another and temporarily stopping Dave's heart. A bystander said: "It was horrific. His car was airborne. How Matthews escaped is beyond me." The damage to Dave's left eye was so severe he never raced again. Instead, he devoted himself to business, transforming his small used-car operation into one of the region's biggest dealerships and overseeing two lucrative mergers which put him at the helm of one of the UK's top 500 companies. In 1991, as the recession began to hit, level-headed Dave cashed in his chips and left the industry to work in property development. As they explain on Eden Rock's slick website, Dave and Jane moved their family to St Barths "in pursuit of a more adventurous life". Over 20 years, Dave, now 73, restored the run-down property - once a haven for Thirties stars Greta Garbo and Howard Hughes - to its former glory, building a blissful retreat. In a recent interview, he gushingly describes it as not just a hotel "but a way of life". He also owns the 10,000-acre Glen Affric Estate in the Scottish Highlands, which opened in 2012 as a luxury hunting lodge, offering guests deer stalking, whisky tasting and helicopter rides. Transfer of the title deeds made Dave a Scottish laird. THE BLACK SHEEP Playboy Spencer's status as the Matthews family's bete noire has been well-documented - ever since he boasted of having slept with more than 1,000 women in his lurid 2013 autobiography, and confessed to a £300,000 steroid addiction which led him to quit reality series I'm A Celebrity . . . in 2015. Eton-educated Spencer found fame on E4 reality show Made In Chelsea in 2011, before which he worked as a PR manager for London clubs Movida, Amika and royal favourite Boujis. He quit his job as a stockbroker to focus on his TV career - and earlier this year won Channel 4's The Jump. Lothario Spencer - who has admitted a liaison with a South African prostitute and being involved in a six-person orgy - is a mummy's boy at heart and is often spotted around London with Jane. Of late, he's formed a firm friendship with James Middleton, Pippa's younger brother. Spencer's current squeeze, Irish model Vogue Williams, 31 - whom he has likened to 'a younger, better-looking Cindy Crawford' - is rumoured to have been banned from the wedding over fears she may upstage the bride.

"China stages big military incursion, Taiwan says" "China has staged one of its biggest incursions in the seas and skies around Taiwan, the island's government says. It said that 71 Chinese air force planes, including fighter jets and drones, had entered Taiwan's so-called air defence identification zone. The US said China's military activity was "destabilising" and undermined "regional peace and stability". Taiwan is self-ruled - but China sees it as a breakaway province with which it will eventually reunite. Tensions between the two sides have steadily increased in recent months. In August, Beijing was enraged by a visit to the island by US Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, the most senior US politician to visit Taiwan in 25 years. China responded to that visit by holding what was then its biggest-ever military exercises in the seas around Taiwan, and also blocked some trade with the island. Taiwan's foreign minister Joseph Wu condemned China's action then as highly provocative. China has never said it would not use force to bring Taiwan under its control. On Monday, Taiwan's defence ministry said 43 Chinese aircraft had crossed over the so-called median line, an unofficial buffer separating the two sides inside the air defence zone. China said it had conducted "strike drills" around Taiwan on Sunday in response to what it said was provocation from the island and the US. A White House National Security Council official said the US was concerned by the latest development, adding it would "continue to assist Taiwan in maintaining a sufficient self-defence capability in line with our long-standing commitments and consistent with our one-China policy". Washington has always walked a diplomatic tightrope over the issue of Taiwan. On the one hand it adheres to the one-China policy, a cornerstone of its relationship with Beijing. Under this policy, the US acknowledges that there is only one Chinese government, and has formal ties with Beijing rather than Taiwan. But it also maintains close relations with Taiwan and sells arms to it under the Taiwan Relations Act, which states that the US must provide the island with the means to defend itself." The BBC is reporting on Taipei. (December 31, 2022)

["UN vote on Israel's occupation 'a victory,' say Palestinians" "The Palestinians on Saturday welcomed a vote by the United Nations General Assembly requesting that the International Court of Justice (ICJ) provide an opinion on the legal consequences of Israel's occupation of the Palestinian territories. The Hague-based ICJ, also known as the World Court, is the top U.N. court dealing with disputes between states. Its rulings are binding, though the ICJ has no power to enforce them. The vote on Friday nonetheless presents a challenge for Israel's incoming Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who took office on Thursday at the head of a hard-right government that includes parties who advocate for occupied West Bank lands to be annexed. Israel captured the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem - areas the Palestinians want for a state - in a 1967 war. Peace talks broke down in 2014.

-Do James and Pippa legitimately get these building permits?
-Are they ever turned down if they want to build something?
-Will they take no for an answer?

This is from the British news. James Matthews bought a home near Pippa's parents' house. It is a country house. There is already an old, small pool. James is wanting to build a very large pool and a tennis court on the land. There was a lawn and a garden in these spots. They need a permit from the land ordinance people.

"EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Pippa Middleton looks to make a splash with huge outdoor swimming pool and tennis court at 15million Berkshire country home she shares with husband James Matthews" Pippa Middleton is determined to make a splash at the country home she and her husband, James Matthews, bought for 15 million. I can disclose that the Princess of Wales's sister plans to dig up the massive walled garden where the previous owner lovingly cultivated fruit and vegetables. In its place, Pippa, 39, and investment banker Matthews, 47, want to install a huge outdoor swimming pool. At 82 ft x 19 ft, it would be more than twice the size of a typical private pool and the same size as those at her two local leisure centres in the Royal County of Berkshire. Next to their pool, the lawn will be dug up and replaced with a tennis court. While Catherine presides over manicured grass courts as patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, her sister intends to install one made of AstroTurf fake grass, 'to enable safe playing conditions all year round'. The kitchen garden's potting shed will be converted into changing rooms. I disclosed in July that the couple, who married in 2017 and have three young children, had bought the 32-room Georgian mansion set in 150 acres. They need planning permission because the walled garden and main house are Grade II-listed and lie in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and near ancient woodland. 'Ownership of [the house] has recently changed hands and the new owner is seeking to evolve and identify a new use for the expansive walled garden site,’ their planning agent said in documents submitted to the local council just before Christmas. 'This in turn will facilitate a significant investment in the heritage asset, securing its future for generations to enjoy. The owner has a growing young family and the proposals seek to provide a secure, private and enhanced area of residential space.' There is already a much smaller pool in the grounds of the house, but their agent says it 'was installed in excess of 20 years ago and is in need of significant renovation and infrastructure upgrades to bring up to modern standards'. The house, which was the subject of a painstaking multi-million-pound restoration by its previous owner, is a short drive from the home of Pippa's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, in Bucklebury. Her brother, James, bought a farmhouse in the county for 1.45 million with his French wife, Alizee, last year."

["Serbs in Northern Kosovo remove the Barricades" "Serbs in northern Kosovo who have been blocking roads for the past 19 days to protest the detention of a former policeman will begin removing the barricades this morning, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said last night, as quoted by Reuters and BTA. "This is a long process. It will take some time," he said after a meeting with the Serbian population in northern Kosovo. Former law enforcement officer Dejan Pantic, whose detention sparked protests among Kosovo's Serb minority, was placed under house arrest yesterday at the request of the prosecutor's office. A day ago, Kosovo asked NATO peacekeepers stationed there to remove the barricades and hinted that Pristina's forces would do so if KFOR forces did not respond. About 4,000 NATO peacekeepers have been stationed in Kosovo since the 1999 war that ended with Belgrade losing control of the territory. Tensions between Kosovo and Serbia have reached a peak in the past month. Western attempts to reach a negotiated settlement have failed because Serbia refuses to recognize Kosovo's statehood. KFOR and the European Union called on Pristina and Belgrade to show restraint and avoid provocations.] The Bulgarian news is reporting on Kosovo. (December 29, 2022)

"Serbian President Vucic discusses with Patriarch Porfirije situation in Kosovo, Metohija" "The situation in Kosovo and Metohija was still tense, with Serbians in the north of the country remaining at the barricades for the 18th day in a row" "BELGRADE, December 27. /TASS/. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic discussed with Patriarch Porfirije of Serbia the situation in Kosovo and Metohija, the Tanjug news agency reported on Tuesday. The meeting reportedly took place on Monday night after Pristina banned the patriarch from entering the region before Christmas. It was held at the residence of His Holiness. Several Serbian media outlets reported that Vucic had asked Patriarch Porfirije to give his blessing to defend Kosovo and Metohija just like Prince Lazar did before the Battle of Kosovo in 1389. The situation in Kosovo and Metohija was still tense, with Serbians in the north of the country remaining at the barricades for the 18th day in a row. The situation in Kosovo escalated sharply on December 6, when special forces of the unrecognized entity, accompanied by patrols of the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX), started to occupy the premises of election commissions in northern Kosovo and Metohija. The Serbian population fought back against the Kosovars, who withdrew across the Ibar River. On December 8, about 350 Kosovo police officers entered the Serb-inhabited north of the province in armored vehicles and blockaded the northern part of Mitrovica. On December 10, the Kosovo police in Mitrovica arrested former Serb policeman Dejan Pantic on spurious charges. In retaliation, the Serbian population held mass protests and blocked several roads with barricades." The Russian news is reporting on President Vucic. (December 27, 2022)

South Korea has determined that the drones came from North Korea, crossing the so-called military demarcation line between the two countries. They were spotted in the skies over the western South Korean city of Gimpo at around 10:25 a.m. local time, the military said. A KA-1 light attack aircraft crashed shortly after taking off from its base to counter the drones, a South Korean defense ministry official said. The two pilots managed to leave the plane before it crashed and were taken to hospital. South Korea's transport ministry said flights from Incheon and Gimpo airports were temporarily suspended at the request of the military.

[Bishop Gerasim read the Christmas Message by Patriarch Neophyte from the pulpit. "Let us desire, seek, and treasure the peace the Lord brought to earth by His birth as man, and let us not forget that, though at odds with our Lord and Creator from the very beginning of our existence, 'while we were God's enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son' (Rm 5:10)," Patriarch Neophyte said in his message. "Today, when our world continues to be torn apart by internecine strife and controversy, when goodwill among men is increasingly giving way to enmity and intolerance of the other, when military conflicts as a means of settling our disputes are not only not diminishing but are assuming ever more threatening proportions and are ruining millions of human destinies, we have again the only true hope, and that is our faith and our trust in God's goodness and God's all-forgiving love. That love which led God Himself to take on human nature, to enter our world and live among us as man; which led Him to the Cross and the crucifixion, to suffering and death, and even to the abyss of hell, in order thus to accomplish our redemption and salvation," the Patriarch stressed and extended his Nativity greetings.] This is the Bulgarian Christmas message.

I guess, the extent to which Cleopatra resembled Alexander. It seems like she wasn't like him. Maybe she was.

Cleopatra was the last of the Ptolemaic dynasty. Ptolemy had been one of Alexander's generals.
This is one description of who the dynasty was named after: "Ptolemy, one of the seven somatophylakes (bodyguard companions), a general and possible half-brother of Alexander the Great, was appointed satrap of Egypt after Alexander's death in 323 BC."
And so it is the dynasty between Alexander and Caesar. And Cleopatra is the last of the dynasty. Supposedly she spoke several languages. Maybe she wasn't Greek like Alexander.

[Kremlin accuses US of using Ukraine as battleground to weaken Russia Russia on Thursday accused Kyiv and Washington of turning a deaf ear to its concerns and charged the United States was using Ukraine as a battleground to weaken Russia. It came as President Vladimir Putin insisted Russia was aiming for a speedy end to the fighting. "Our goal is... to end this conflict. We are striving for this," he told reporters. "We will seek to make sure that it all ends, and the sooner, the better." "All conflicts end, some way or another, with talks... The faster our adversaries (in Kyiv) understand that, the better it will be," Putin said. Moscow's military chief has said Russian forces are now concentrated on wresting control of the eastern Donetsk region where the battered city of Bakhmut has become an epicenter of fighting. fficials in Moscow have repeatedly said in recent months that they have not ruled out talks with Ukraine. They blamed the closure of diplomatic channels on President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who has said he will not negotiate while Putin is in power. The Ukrainian leader has returned from a historic trip to Washington, where he told Congress his country was "alive and kicking" and supporting it was an investment in global security.]

"Taiwan scrambles jets to warn away Chinese air force incursion" "TAIPEI: Taiwan scrambled combat jets to warn away 39 Chinese aircraft that entered its southeastern air defence zone, the island's defence ministry said on Thursday (Dec 22). Taiwan has complained of repeated missions by the Chinese air force over the last two years, often in southern areas of its air defence identification zone, or ADIZ. Thursday's incursion included 21 fighters and four H-6 bombers, as well as early warning, antisubmarine and aerial refuelling aircraft, Taiwan's defence ministry said in a report detailing Chinese activities in its ADIZ over the last 24 hours. Many of the aircraft flew over a waterway known as the Bashi Channel to an area off the island's southeastern coast, according to a map provided by the ministry. Three Chinese navy ships were also detected near Taiwan, the ministry said. Taiwan sent unspecified combat aircraft to warn away the Chinese planes, while missile systems monitored their flight, the ministry said, using standard wording for its response. Separate Taiwan government notices have said the defence ministry's research and development arm, the National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology, is holding a missile firing drill this week on the island's southeastern coast. China, which claims Taiwan as its own, has stepped up pressure in recent years on the self-governed island to accept Beijing's rule. Taiwan's government rejects the Chinese claims and says it wants peace but will defend itself if attacked."

'Myanmar junta foreign minister meets some ASEAN counterparts at 'informal' Thai meeting' 'BANGKOK: Three Southeast Asian foreign ministers and a regional envoy tasked with solving the Myanmar crisis met with the junta's top diplomat at an "informal" meeting in Thailand on Thursday (Dec 22), the Thai government said. The meeting came shortly after the United Nations Security Council adopted its first resolution on Myanmar, demanding "an immediate end to all forms of violence". The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has led diplomatic efforts to resolve the turmoil that has gripped Myanmar since the military seized power last year. There has, however, been little progress on a "five-point consensus" agreed with the junta in April 2021, which calls for an immediate end to violence and dialogue between the military and the anti-coup movement. There was "candid and constructive" discussion between the foreign ministers of Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia, Thai foreign ministry spokesperson Kanchana Patarachoke said. "This included the opportunity to hear from Myanmar and to exchange views on finding the exit strategy and pathways towards a return to normalcy in Myanmar," she said. The meeting touched on facilitating humanitarian assistance, Kanchana said, as well as "exploring other approaches that could support the implementation of the Five-Point Consensus".'

'North Korea sold arms to Russia's Wagner group: United States' 'WASHINGTON: North Korea has delivered arms to Russia's private military group Wagner, the White House said Thursday (Dec 22), calling the group a "rival" for power to the defence and other ministries in the Kremlin. The US will boost sanctions on the Wagner group following North Korea's sale to the group of infantry rockets and missiles last month, in violation of UN Security Council resolutions, said White House national security spokesman John Kirby. "Wagner is searching around the world for arms suppliers to support its military operations in Ukraine," Kirby told reporters. "We can confirm that North Korea has completed an initial arms delivery to Wagner, which paid for that equipment," he said. Kirby said the Wagner group, which is independent of the Russian defense establishment and is leading a bloody siege of Bakhmut, Ukraine, is spending more than US$100 million each month in its Ukraine operations. "Wagner is emerging as a rival power center to the Russian military and other Russian ministries," Kirby said. "SIGN OF DESPERATION" In a statement, British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said the UK concurs with the American assessment that North Korea delivered arms to Russia for the Wagner group in violation of UN resolutions. "The fact that President Putin is turning to North Korea for help is a sign of Russia's desperation and isolation," Cleverly said. "We will work with our partners to ensure that North Korea pays a high price for supporting Russia's illegal war in Ukraine." The Wagner group is controlled by Yevgeny Prigozhin, a businessman once called "Putin's chef" for his work catering dinners for Vladimir Putin before and after he became the Russian president.

'Hong Kong court rejects bid to terminate sedition trial of Stand News' HONG KONG: A Hong Kong Court on Thursday (Dec 22) rejected an application to terminate a sedition trial against now-defunct online media outlet Stand News, a case that could see two former top editors jailed if convicted. Former editors Chung Pui-kuen, 53, and Patrick Lam, 35, and the outlet's parent company, Best Pencil (Hong Kong), have been charged with conspiracy to publish seditious material related to news articles and commentaries between July 2020 and December last year. They have pleaded not guilty and are free on bail. Sedition is punishable by a maximum two years jail. Defence lawyers Audrey Eu and David Ma applied to terminate the proceedings arguing the National Security Department had improperly handled evidence related to scores of additional articles prosecutors have cited as seditious since the trial began. But District Court Judge Kwok Wai-kin said the defence could not prove that the prosecution had failed to disclose relevant material in a way that would compromise the fairness of the trial, or would "abuse the court procedures in future hearings". Stand News was forced to shut and took down all their online content after police raided its office and arrested seven former editorial staff and board members in December 2021. Hong Kong's government has said press freedom is enshrined in the city's mini-constitution, the Basic Law.

- Maybe these are German-made Chinese warplanes that are flying in the Taiwanese ADIZ.
- The Chinese infantry and the Germans might do secretive military stuff in Burma and that's why there is a need for a UNSC resolution.
- These might be German-made infantry rockets and missiles that passed from North Korea to the Wagner group.
- The Hong Kong PD might use German-made police radios and that's why they jail people for sedition.

"Investigation Into Death of Bulgarian Border Police Officer Is At Advanced Stage, Turkish Court Is Yet to Rule" "The investigation into the death of the Bulgarian border policeman Petar Bachvarov, who was shot at the Bulgarian-Turkish border, is in an advanced stage and a court ruling in Turkey is pending, Interior Ministry Secretary General Petar Todorov told journalists. He received the information in his meetings late last week with the Turkish authorities. Most likely, the sentence in the case will be served on Turkish territory, Todorov assumed. The Border Police officer, Sergeant Petar Bachvarov, was killed on November 7 while patrolling the border with Turkiye, near the village of Golyam Dervent. Two days later, the Turkish authorities arrested two brothers, one of whom confessed to shooting at Bachvarov from Turkish territory through a chink in the border fence. Turkiye will build a monument to Bachvarov, it emerged during a visit by Bulgarian National Assembly Chair Vezhdi Rashidov earlier this week. Todorov and part of the Interior Ministry's leadership attended a ceremony in front of the Monument to Police Officers Killed in the Line of Duty, where flowers were laid on the occasion of the professional holiday of the Border Police."
