Obama Urges Americans To Reject Language That 'Feeds A Climate Of Fear'

 Cache   
Former President Barack Obama weighed in on the mass shootings this past weekend in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, saying on Monday that Americans "should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments." In a statement released on Twitter , Obama did not mention President Trump by name, but his reference seemed clear. Obama denounced language from "leaders who demonize those who don't look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people." Such language, Obama said, "has no place in our politics and our public life." He added that "it's time for the overwhelming majority of Americans of goodwill, of every race and faith and political party, to say as much — clearly and unequivocally." Obama's statement Monday was a rare occasion when the former

A partir de octubre de 2019 iWith.org#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/25915&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com cede el paso a Help-On, la asociación sin ánimo de lucro que toma el relevo a la Fundación y gestiona los servicios.
Lo explicamos en detalle:

¿De dónde venimos?

La Fundación iWith.org#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/25915&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com nació hace casi 20 años para ayudar a las organizaciones en el uso de Internet. En aquella época Google era poco conocido y junto a nosotros nacían proyectos con un nuevo carácter social como Hazloposible, Idealist y Wikipedia. 

En este entorno hicimos una labor indispensable transmitiendo conocimiento, impartiendo formación y desarrollando la plataforma de servicios integrados Abcore con la que muchos proyectos iniciaron su andadura en Internet.

Pasados los años, la situación es muy distinta, el conocimiento está en la red, hay una oferta formativa suficiente, existen muchas empresas, organizaciones y consultorías dispuestas a acompañar a las ONG en su camino por internet, y se han desarrollado infinidad de programas con los que hacer webs, blogs, campus, tiendas y todo tipo de herramientas para establecer comunicación en las redes. Hemos visto nacer a Facebook, Twitter y Skype, y hemos visto desaparecer Fotolog, Tuenti y Google Wave.

En este entorno muchas cosas cambian, y nosotros también tenemos una buena propuesta.

Estamos orgullosos de haber estado entre los pioneros, de haber participado en cientos de proyectos no lucrativos, de haber gestionado bien importantes recursos privados y públicos, y en resumen de haber trabajado con tantas buenas personas en la digitalización del sector no lucrativo.

¿Qué cambiamos? 

Cedemos el paso a Help-On, una nueva asociación sin ánimo de lucro que concentra toda la experiencia y valores de iWith.org#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/25915&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com, y mantiene los mismos servicios con una estructura más ágil. 
Cambiamos

¿Cómo hemos preparado el corto plazo?

Nuestro plan incluye un respeto absoluto para todos los stakeholders, voluntariado, colaboradores, partners, donantes, usuarios, proveedores y todos los que nos habéis acompañado en estas dos décadas.

Entre todos hemos desarrollado la Plataforma integrada de servicios Internet Abcore Cadí, y ahora la devolvemos a la sociedad en forma de software libre con código abierto y gratuito. 

Muchos de los que hemos hecho crecer a iWith.org#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/25915&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com estamos ayudando a nacer y seguiremos apoyando a Help-On liderada por David Soto al que probablemente ya conoces. 

No tienes que preocuparte de nada, mismo servicio, mismas condiciones, mismas máquinas, mismo equipo técnico y una nueva oportunidad de avanzar.

¿Cómo vemos El futuro?

Sin duda el mundo seguirá evolucionando y deparando sorpresas, y todo indica que Internet junto a la sociedad civil y los proyectos no lucrativos tendrán un papel importante en el desarrollo de la sociedad.

Estamos seguros de que la nueva estructura más flexible y dinámica continuará dando respuestas a los nuevos retos que planteéis desde las organizaciones.

Body Language Analysis No. 4398: Mohammed bin Salman regarding the Murder of Jamal Khashoggi ("60 Minutes" Interview) — Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

 Cache   


Last week on 60 Minutes, Mohammed bin Salman was interviewed by Norah O'Donnell. What follows is a crucial portion of that interview evaluated in detail with nonverbal, verbal, and paralanguage analysis. 

NORAH O'DONNELL: Did you order the murder of Jamal Khashoggi?

MOHAMMED BIN SALMAN: Absolutely [drawn-out], ah-um — [pause] — not.


Immediately after Ms. O'Donnell asks the question, "Did you order the murder of Jamal Khashoggi?" — when the camera switches to him, Mohammed bin Salman does not have eye contact with her or the camera. He's looking down. More specifically, he's looking down to his left. This is the quadrant to which most people look when they're formulating an answer.

Why does the Saudi Prince have to think about this simple question regarding such an important matter? There should be no thinking. There should be no planning of sentences or syntax.

Mohammed bin Salman's lack of eye contact here is profoundly telling and cannot be over-emphasized. When being asked a direct question, particularly a yes-or-no question, the presence of (and nuance of) eye contact is the most crucial component when separating truth from deception. While, importantly, eye-contact is not expected to be constant or staring — during this crucial portion of his answer, his lack of eye contact screams deception. 

The Crown Prince also shakes his head side-to-side (No) as he takes in a deep breath. Mohammed bin Salman then holds that breath in a Valsalva-type variation — thus exerting elevated intrathoracic pressure. In this context, this physiology indicates significantly elevated anxiety and it's highly indicative of deception.


Mohammed bid Salman then blinks twice within a second — the latter being of longer duration and a deeper blink (complete eyelid closure). Two seconds later he again begins rapid blinking.


The Saudi Prince then hand-shrugs with his right thumb pointing up. The camera angle did not permit a view of his left hand. This particular thumbs-up illustrator is an example of a Partial Emblematic Slip. In detail, an Emblem is a universally recognized nonverbal signal (A thumbs-up dynamic is a universally recognized gesture of approval). It's Partial, because it's not presented in a fully-expressed manner, but rather in a lower-height and short-duration mode. And, it's a Slip, because it's a tell — or leakage of feelings he truly has, yet is trying to suppress — it slips out.

Mohammed bin Salman, despite his extensive coaching and preparation for this interview, let his true thought-emotions slip in this split second — via his thumb. His body language is saying, "Yes, I did". Intriguingly, this affirmation signal comes just prior to him saying the word, "Absolutely".


During the last portion of the word, "Absolutely" — as well as during his "ah-um" and also during his pause, Mohammed bin Salman can be seen displaying a suppressed smile. This is an example of what is known as Duping Delight (Ekman). It signals that the speaker is feeling true joy-happiness in his belief that he has fooled his audience.

It's important to note that, that what action delight the perpetrator, may very well not delight onlookers (as is the case here, of course). Moreover, those displaying duping delight may not be as convincing in their camouflage of deception as they believe.

Can you imagine being innocent of committing a murder or ordering that murder and having even an iota of a smile on your face in your denial? Smiling out-of-context is always a telling red flag.


After his stutter/ah-um and his pause, Mohammed bid Salman then says the word, "No". As he speaks it, his forehead and eyebrows elevate, while his eyelids simultaneously mildly move downward. The opposing directional dynamic of these two closely juxtaposed facial tissues — as he is denying (saying the word "No") is highly correlative with lying.

A monumentally important tell is displayed toward the end of the pause, and when he is saying, "No" — The Crown Prince stops his side-to-side head movement and thrusts his head and neck forward. When his words are saying, "No", his body language ceases to agree. This nonverbal-verbal disparity dynamic is a blaring siren of deception.


He then avoids eye contact again looking down to his left —


— and exhibits additional rapidly blinking.

The Crown Prince's choice of words here are also quite noteworthy. His first word, upon being asked this question, should not be one of affirmation — rather it should be that of negation.

He also draws out the word, "Absolutely". Moreover, he inserts an "ah" immediately followed by a brief "um", and a long pause prior to saying, "No".

Why would an innocent person need to pause before saying, "No"?

In full, he answers, "Absolutely [drawn out] ah-um [pause] not".

Of course, the translator did not insert these critical paralanguage (statement analysis) details as he translated, and his omission completely changes the meaning. You don't have to speak Arabic — or even watch the video, you can simply listen — the Saudi Prince did not speak with conviction or confidence.

SUMMARY: Mohammed bin Salman's nonverbal, verbal, and paralanguage behavior during this crucial portion of this interview indicates that, with extremely high probability, he did order the killing of Washington Post journalist and US resident, Jamal Khashoggi.

Sistema de ataque del Power Electronics Valencia. La pizarra de Svestislav Pesic

 Cache   

\"\"Como comenté en la anterior entrada sobre los sistemas de juego del ASEFA Estudiantes, el TOP 16 de las dos máximas competiciones europeas nos deparará cada semana grandes partidos de baloncesto de primerísimo nivel. La primera jornada nos trajo una nueva exhibición del Power Electronics Valencia de Svestilav Pesic. Más allá de enumerar todos los numerosos cambios que ha supuesto la llegada del entrenador serbio en la metamorfosis del equipo taronja, quería analizar uno de los sistemas que utilizó en el encuentro de la semana pasada y que evidencia el gran trabajo táctico que están realizando para explotar las cualidades de los talentosos jugadores que tiene a su disposición.

He de reconocer que he disfrutado como un enano recopilando los movimientos que utiliza el Valencia Basket y analizando las diferentes variantes que tienen de un mismo sistema. En los cinco minutos de vídeo que podéis ver a continuación aparece uno sólo de estos sistemas que aunque parece de inicio muy complejo es de una "belleza coordinada" increíble en la que todos los jugadores saben qué tienen que hacer, cuándo lo tienen que hacer y dónde pueden hacer daño a la defensa. Dependiendo de las decisiones de los jugadores el sistema va evolucionando con el paso de los segundos para ofrecer un sinfín de recursos tácticos a los jugadores para atacar la canasta.

Bloqueos indirectos, bloqueos ciegos, bloqueos directos, trabajo en lado débil, continuo movimiento para que la defensa no pueda estar pendiente del balón, coordinación, puertas atrás, pases mano a mano, un perfecto timing de ejecución, aclarados para sus mejores hombres en las posiciones donde son realmente efectivos... realmente un gran trabajo de ingeniería táctica que dio un buen número de canastas al equipo de Pesic ante el Zalgiris la semana pasada. Os dejo con el vídeo y con el pdf donde se explica el sistema paso por paso.

'Vulnerable' Migrants Should Be Exempt From 'Remain In Mexico,' But Many Are Not

At first, the boy running around this migrant shelter in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, appears to be just like any other 8-year-old: Skinny, shy, giggly. You don't even notice his glass eye. But it's a constant source of worry for his family, who fled Guatemala earlier this year. The boy, Jonathan, lost his eye to a tumor when he was a toddler. Now he needs medicine to keep the eye clean. "It's a very delicate sickness, very complicated," said his father Giovani, speaking in Spanish through an interpreter. "He needs checkups frequently by medical specialists in the hospital." Jonathan, 8, from Guatemala, shows his prosthetic eye. He lost his eye to a tumor when he was a toddler. Now he needs medicine to keep the eye clean. Paul Ratje for NPR Giovani says that care has been hard for the family to get in Juarez, the border town across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas.

Fear, Confusion And Separation As Trump Administration Sends Migrants Back To Mexico

 Cache   
Several dozen Central American migrants crossed the U.S.-Mexico border again, this time escorted by federal agents to an El Paso, Texas, courtroom as part of an unprecedented effort by the Trump administration to control migration. During a hearing last week, the judge asked the migrants one by one if they had a lawyer. Nearly all of them said, "No." That's not unusual. More than 6,000 migrants who came to the United States to ask for asylum have been sent back to Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, just across the border from El Paso, to wait for their day in U.S. immigration court under the "Remain in Mexico" program. But only about 20 of them have lawyers, according to human rights groups and attorneys who work with the migrants. Remain in Mexico is a key part of the Trump administration's plan to turn back a crush of migrants at the southern border, and it's a historic shift in how the asylum system works.

Border Patrol Officials Allow Reporters To See Inside Clint, Texas, Facility

Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit AUDIE CORNISH, HOST: The Border Patrol has come under withering criticism this week after reports that children were held in a remote west Texas station in squalid conditions and without enough food. Officials have denied the allegations. And today, they took reporters on a tour of the station where more than a hundred children are still being held. NPR's Joel Rose was on that tour. He joins us now. And, Joel, let's just start with what the facility was like. JOEL ROSE, BYLINE: Hey, Audie. Yeah. It's out here on a remote country road a little more than half an hour outside of El Paso, Texas. The building looks kind of like a warehouse. On the inside, it has Border Patrol offices as well as holding cells. It was clean. It did not smell bad. Frankly, it smelled better than some of the other holding facilities I've seen. We were shown where the children are kept in the holding cells with up to about 20 kids each. They're segregated by age, by gender.
          

Immigration System At The 'Breaking Point,' Homeland Security Official Warns

Updated at 6:45 p.m. ET Immigration authorities are expressing alarm about the growing number of migrants crossing the Southern border. Federal agents apprehended more than 4,000 migrants crossing the border on each of two days this week — the highest daily total recorded in 15 years, according to a senior official with Customs and Border Protection. "The breaking point has arrived," said CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan in a news conference Wednesday in El Paso, Texas. The breaking point has arrived. - Kevin McAleenan, CBP commissioner "CBP is facing an unprecedented humanitarian and border security crisis all along our Southwest border — and nowhere has that crisis manifested more acutely than here in El Paso," McAleenan said. As the weather warms up, immigration authorities warn that the flow of migrants crossing the border will continue to grow, possibly reaching as high as 150,000 per month. Federal agents are on pace to apprehend or encounter more than 100,000 migrants in March —

Irsi Castillo clutches her 3-year-old daughter to her chest to shield her from the wind. They've just crossed the Rio Grande and stepped onto U.S. soil in El Paso, Texas, after traveling from Honduras. Thousands of migrants like Castillo are crossing the border every day and turning themselves in to the Border Patrol. They're fleeing poverty and violence in Central America. At the current pace, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen says, almost 100,000 migrants will cross the border this month — far exceeding last month's total. Nielsen traveled to Texas on Thursday and talked with local sheriffs about what she's calling a "catastrophe" at the Southern border. "Our laws aren't keeping up with the migrant flows," Nielsen said earlier this week in Washington. "And until they are fixed, the situation will only get worse and more heartbreaking." And that's at the heart of the current immigration debate. One side says these migrants deserve the chance to apply for asylum, while the

Gobierno de Claudia Rivera trabaja para evitar desvío de recursos públicos

Las políticas públicas y las iniciativas que trabajan en materia de la normatividad y economía del ayuntamiento, deben ser corregidas a beneficio de la sociedad para evitar los desvíos de recursos en tiempos electorales, informó Claudia Rivera Vivanco, presidenta municipal de Puebla.

Durante la sesión de Cabildo donde se aprobó la regulación, análisis y padronamiento del comercio informal en el primer cuadro de la ciudad, la alcaldesa señaló que desde su administración se ha venido trabajando a favor de los poblanos cambiando todos aquellos reglamentos, sobre todo en materia de normatividad que estaban hechos de modo para que en tiempos electorales se hiciera desvíos de recursos sin tener problema alguno ni consecuencias legales.

Asimismo, detalló que desde el inicio de su administración ha emprendido un trabajo que consiste en acercar a la ciudadanía los proyectos administrativos del ayuntamiento, para que se de cuenta en tiempo real de los gastos y salidas que se tienen en cada uno de los proyectos del municipio.

Durante la sesión de Cabildo, determinó que no hay mejor trabajo que el que se hace a favor de los ciudadanos, por lo que uno de los puntos importantes es establecer medidas de apoyo a quienes se encuentran sin un trabajo fijo, entre ellos el comercio informal en el que se aprobó la revisión, análisis, reordenamiento y padronamiento de quienes laboran en el primer cuadro de la ciudad, para así regularlos y trabajen sin dañar la viabilidad, la contaminación y el desorden generado por el aglutinamiento, por acaparar toda una sección evitando el paso peatonal.

Por último recordó que en cada Sesión de Cabildo, habrá siempre análisis y críticas, pero con el objetivo de salvaguardar la integridad, seguridad y paz social de los poblanos, en cada una de las propuestas e iniciativas llegadas al ayuntamiento capitalino.

Man Behind Slogan Promoting French Preservation

"The great replacement has become a household word. I take responsibility for it. I believe in its relevance."

THOUGH the writer had already lived in his castle for a quarter of a century, it was only three years ago that he finally restored it to its original purpose as a fortress.

The writer, Renaud Camus, rebuilt the top 10 feet of the 14th-century tower, giving him an even more commanding view of his surroundings: the village of 40 souls below; the Pyrenees, faintly visible some 100 miles south despite the midsummer haze; and, in every direction, the peaceful, rolling hills of the “eternal France” that he describes as under assault from what he calls hordes of immigrants.

Up in his castle, the France that Mr. Camus imagines has made him one of the most influential thinkers on the far right in his own country and elsewhere. In his writings, he describes an ongoing “invasion” of France by immigrants bent on “conquest” of its white, European population. To him, the immigrants are “colonizing” France by giving birth to more children and making its cities, towns — and even villages — unlivable.

Others have espoused similar ideas. But Mr. Camus’s portrayal of demographic change — le “grand remplacement,” or the supposed “great replacement” of France’s original population by newer arrivals, mostly from Africa — has become an extremist talking point, cited by mass killers in distant parts of the world.

“It’s a slogan that dramatizes the situation, talking of great replacement the same way we speak of the great barbarian invasions,” said Rudy Reichstadt, an expert on political extremism at the Fondation Jean-Jaurès research institute in Paris. “Now, if you go to a horse race betting bar and talk politics, and you mention the great replacement, people will understand what you mean.”

The idea of the great replacement has directly influenced French politicians and thinkers. Interpreted and repackaged across the internet, it has resonated widely beyond France, including in white supremacist circles.

The men held in two recent mass shootings — at a Walmart in El Paso and at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand — both referred to the “great replacement” and the need to defend white populations against invading outsiders.

While decrying the killings, Mr. Camus said he had no regrets about coming up with the term.

“The great replacement has become a household word,” he said. “I take responsibility for it. I believe in its relevance.”

Stroking his white beard, Mr. Camus, who is not related to the 20th-century writer Albert Camus, sat in his expansive study — half the top floor of his castle filled with books and a handful of African masks. In contrast to the harsh words he chooses to describe France’s immigrants, he spoke softly, and sometimes with the mannerisms of another era. He and his partner of two decades, Pierre, addressed each other as “vous,” though they said they sometimes slipped into the informal “tu.”

Ensconced in his castle in southern France, in a village an hour’s drive across country roads from the nearest train station, Mr. Camus, 73, is perhaps an unlikely source of inspiration for the world’s far right and white supremacists. Until a few years ago, Mr. Camus was known, mainly by other French writers, as a novelist and a pioneering writer of gay literature. An early book about his sexual experiences, called “Tricks,” remains his most translated work.

Growing up in a conservative rural town in central France, Mr. Camus went to Paris in the 1960s and found a niche in the capital’s literary and artistic scene. He befriended Roland Barthes, who wrote the preface for “Tricks.” As a member of the Socialist Party, he became active in politics on the left.

Still, Mr. Camus longed to return to the countryside. He sold his Paris apartment and, in 1992, used the money to buy and restore the castle in Plieux, fulfilling a lifelong fantasy.

A few years after moving to Plieux, he had what he calls an epiphany that would shape his political views. While visiting a 1,000-year-old village in southern France, he said he saw a group of veiled women milling around a fountain.

“And in the ancient windows — beautiful, paired gothic windows — veiled women would appear all of a sudden,” he said. “It was really the population of eternal France that was changing.”

THAT led to the formation in 2002 of his own political party, l’In-nocence, which calls for an end to all immigration and promotes sending immigrants and their children back to their countries of origin.

But it was a decade later, when he publicly began using the term “great replacement” and wrote a book with the same title, that his influence in France began to be felt.

The great replacement, he wrote, indicates the “replacement of a people, the indigenous French people, by one or others; of its culture by the loss of its cultural identity through multiculturalism.”

He says he sees no contradiction between his earlier life as a gay writer on the left and his current role as an ideological beacon for the right, including violent extremists. He contends he has always told “the hard truths.”

Previous generations of European immigrants had been drawn by “love” for France, he wrote. But the newer arrivals since the 1970s — mostly from France’s former colonies in the Maghreb and in sub-Saharan Africa — didn’t come “as friends.” Instead, he declared, they came as conquerors, filled with hatred and a desire to punish France.

He singled out Muslims for “not wanting to integrate” into French society.

According to government data, immigrants now make up about 10 percent of France’s population, many of them nonwhite, up from about 7 percent in the 1970s, or 5 percent in 1946, the year of Mr. Camus’s birth — a steady rise, though far from the overwhelming one described by Mr. Camus…

Mr. Camus’s ideas — and his subsequent call to support Marine Le Pen, the far-right leader of the National Rally party — turned him into a pariah in France’s literary and media circles.

His longtime publishers dropped him, forcing him to publish on his own. “The Great Replacement” was never translated into English. Invitations from mainstream news shows dried up. Lifelong friendships came to an end.

But even as Mr. Camus became toxic, his phrase gained traction, first on French farright websites, like “Observatoire de Grand Remplacement.” Politicians on the right and far right, including Ms. Le Pen, used the term.

Then “great replacement” slipped into the right-wing mainstream. While Mr. Camus’s books went largely unsold, best-selling writers, like Eric Zemmour, have expounded on the idea.

Jean-Yves Camus, an expert on the far right at the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs, said that the author of “The Great Replacement” viewed the world from the perspective of a novelist and aesthete without recognition of realworld consequences.

“He should become aware that in our universe, where everything happens in real time, what you say from the position of an aesthete or a writer, can instantly be transformed into a gun and bullets,” said the expert, who is not related to Renaud Camus.

Isolated in his castle, Mr. Camus grew even more removed from the actual France he purported to describe — one filled, he believes, with people of Arab and African descent burning with hatred for France and plotting its conquest. In fact, he acknowledged that his understanding of such people was based mainly on Twitter and Facebook.

He said he almost never read newspapers or watched television.

“Distance is very, very necessary for observation,” he said.

My Book Defending Free Speech Has Been Pulled

James Flynn

I recently completed a book defending free speech. Emerald Press scheduled it for publication but then decided not to proceed. Here’s what it said about the book in Emerald’s September 2019 catalogue:

In Defense of Free Speech: The University as Censor
Author James R. Flynn, University of Otago, New Zealand

Synopsis: The good university is one that teaches students the intellectual skills they need to be intelligently critical—of their own beliefs and of the narratives presented by politicians and the media. Freedom to debate is essential to the development of critical thought, but on university campuses today free speech is restricted for fear of causing offence. In Defense of Free Speech surveys the underlying factors that circumscribe the ideas tolerated in our institutions of learning. James Flynn critically examines the way universities censor their teaching, how student activism tends to censor the opposing side and how academics censor themselves, and suggests that few, if any, universities can truly be seen as ‘good.’ In an age marred by fake news and social and political polarization, In Defense of Free Speech makes an impassioned argument for a return to critical thought.

I was notified of Emerald’s decision not to proceed by Tony Roche, Emerald’s publishing director, in an email on 10th June:


"I am contacting you in regard to your manuscript In Defense of Free Speech: The University as Censor. Emerald believes that its publication, in particular in the United Kingdom, would raise serious concerns. By the nature of its subject matter, the work addresses sensitive topics of race, religion, and gender. The challenging manner in which you handle these topics as author, particularly at the beginning of the work, whilst no doubt editorially powerful, increase the sensitivity and the risk of reaction and legal challenge. As a result, we have taken external legal advice on the contents of the manuscript and summarize our concerns below.

There are two main causes of concern for Emerald. Firstly, the work could be seen to incite racial hatred and stir up religious hatred under United Kingdom law. Clearly you have no intention of promoting racism but intent can be irrelevant. For example, one test is merely whether it is “likely” that racial hatred could be stirred up as a result of the work. This is a particular difficulty given modern means of digital media expression. The potential for circulation of the more controversial passages of the manuscript online, without the wider intellectual context of the work as a whole and to a very broad audience—in a manner beyond our control—represents a material legal risk for Emerald.

Secondly, there are many instances in the manuscript where the actions, conversations and behavior of identifiable individuals at specific named colleges are discussed in detail and at length in relation to controversial events. Given the sensitivity of the issues involved, there is both the potential for serious harm to Emerald’s reputation and the significant possibility of legal action. Substantial changes to the content and nature of the manuscript would need to be made, or Emerald would need to accept a high level of risk both reputational and legal. The practical costs and difficulty of managing any reputational or legal problems that did arise are of further concern to Emerald.

For the reasons outlined above, it is with regret that Emerald has taken the decision not to publish your manuscript. We have not taken this decision lightly, but following senior level discussions within the organization, and with the additional benefit of specialist legal advice. I realize that this decision will come as a disappointment to you and hope that you will be able to find an alternative publisher with whom to take the work to publication."


If the book is sober and responsible, and if Emerald’s letter is correct, that poses a question: Does Britain have free speech? The above letter inspired me to change the title from “In Defense of Free Speech: The University as Censor” to “A Banned Book: Free speech and universities.” I hope that some publishers will contact me (jim.flynn@otago.ac.nz#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/80550&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com), so they can decide whether the book is worthy of publication and whether it runs afoul of any of the U.K.’s laws. If a journalist gets in touch, I can also send them the text for their eyes only. Let me give an outline of its contents.

The benefits of free speech

First, I give a general defense of free speech and criticize Jason Stanley and Jeremy Waldron insofar as their views differ from my own. I then use the case of Charles Murray being denied a platform at Middlebury College to show what students and staff miss out on when they refuse to hear or read those who offend them:

[My] dividends from reading Arthur Jensen, Richard Lynn, and Charles Murray: a plausible case that genetic differences between the major races are unlikely to confer an advantage or a handicap for desirable personal traits; a far better understanding of black America; a method that sheds light on personal development and leaves room for personal autonomy; an understanding of how differently males and females respond to formal education; a case that genetic differences between the genders seem cognitively trivial; a somewhat better understanding of the Chinese both at home and in America; a case for affirmative action that does not depend on racial bias; and most of all, a better understanding of the dynamics of a truly humane and egalitarian society.

This is the sad fate that the mob at Middlebury wanted to save me from. If I had not read these “discredited” scholars, I would still have a half-educated mind full of passion about race and gender and class and not much else.

A history of oppression

I then chart the history of the sins of universities against free speech with an emphasis on the McCarthy era (when conservatives barred or fired those they considered suspect), through the transitional period of Vietnam, to the present (when many on the “left” do much the same, particularly student protest groups). I detail the use of speech codes, and trigger warnings, and departments that have a party line (“Walden codes”) to discipline, expel, fire, and, above all, to defend indoctrination rather than education.

I include among the latter some African American studies departments that will not assign books or papers by conservative thinkers, some women’s studies departments that reject incontrovertible social science that runs counter to the official feminist ideology, and some (almost all) education departments that define their purpose as sending out “missionaries” to convert schools to their vision of an egalitarian society. I also provide a history of America’s schoolteachers, tracing how the low status of their profession has made the schools susceptible to adopting a missionary role.

Finally, I criticize the failure of universities to provide their students with the critical intelligence they need to be autonomous human beings and good citizens, despite the fact that they all state this as their chief objective.

Is this book worth reading?

Well, it will not be read unless it is published. To discuss a point made in Emerald’s letter, every reference to a person is documented by citations of published material or material in the public domain. At present, I can only cite the testimony of distinguished scholars. Some of the following were referees who sent their opinions to Emerald and some read it to give me an informal assessment.

This book is an education in itself…It is a brilliant and courageous book.
—Thomas Bouchard

That’s shocking [the rejection] even by the standards of contemporary restrictions on free speech, and especially ironic given the subject of your book.
—Steven Pinker

It is ironic that a book critical of restrictions on free speech should itself be rejected by a publisher who is worried about the book falling afoul of UK laws on incitement to racial hatred.  In fact this is doubly ironic, given that the book is by Jim Flynn, after whom the “Flynn effect” is named, because the Flynn effect is all about the difference that culture and environment — rather than genes — makes to IQ scores. The draft I have seen has the potential to be an important and controversial work that will be very widely discussed.
—Peter Singer

I must admit I was shocked. Well, anyway, they have given you material for another chapter!
—John C. Loehlin

This is in-[expletive]-credible…Your book should not be considered even close to the fringes of politically correct discourse. If publishers are scared of your book, the censorship problem is a few orders of magnitude worse than I realized.
—Charles Murray

Homily

Discussing why free speech should extend to questions of race and gender necessarily involves presenting views (such as those of Jensen, Murray, and Lynn), if only for purposes of rebuttal, which upset those who believe that racial and sexual equality is self-evident. If upsetting students or staff or the public is a reason for banning speech, all such discussion is at an end. I end the book by quoting from George Orwell’s original preface to Animal Farm, which was itself rejected by Faber and Faber for being too critical of Stalin: “If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.”

James R. Flynn is an intelligence researcher who gave his name to the Flynn Effect. He is Emeritus Professor of Political Studies at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand.

As Fundraising Shoots Up, Lawsuits Threaten Southern Poverty Law Center
  
The embattled far-left Southern Poverty Law Center flew past the half-billion-dollar mark in assets for the first time, ending the last tax year with $518.3 million in assets—after raking in $122.9 million that year, according to a newly disclosed IRS filing.

To provide a sense of scale, $518.3 million is more in assets than either the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation Inc. ($452.8 million) or Planned Parenthood Federation of America Inc. ($446.3 million) had at the end of 2017.

Critics say the Montgomery, Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), a public-interest law firm whose founder, Morris Dees, and president, Richard Cohen, were ousted earlier this year amid accusations of racial discrimination and employee abuse, unfairly tars conservatives as racist as a matter of policy, treats all opposition to illegal or legal immigration, open borders, and multiculturalism as hate, and all political expression of those views as hate speech.

The SPLC, critics also say, deliberately lumps together all sorts of groups on America’s political right in order to intimidate and “de-platform” non-leftists. Conservative, libertarian, anti-tax, immigration reductionist, and other groups are all viewed as legitimate targets for vilification.

The group has its defenders in the media who take its work seriously. For example, in Rolling Stone, Amelia McDonell-Parry wrote that “the SPLC has developed a reputation for being an authority on extremist hate groups, monitoring and exposing their activities to the public, media and law enforcement.”

The Center appears to have brought in donor dollars by blaming something it calls the “Trump Effect” for thousands of cases of alleged “prejudice,” “bullying,” and “hate crimes” in the nation’s schools. Within weeks of President Donald Trump’s election, the group released the results “of a new survey, answered by more than 10,000 teachers across the country detailing the negative effect the election has had on school climates.”

The SPLC called on the president-elect “to immediately and forcefully publicly denounce racism and bigotry and to call on Americans to stop all acts of hate” even though there was little evidence from across the country that Trump supporters had done anything wrong. To the contrary, media reports at the time were bursting with stories of Trump supporters and Make America Great Again hat-wearers being violently set upon by angry liberals and progressives.

As part of its mission, the SPLC brings civil rights lawsuits that attack school choice, tracks so-called hate groups, publishes newsletters, and provides educational materials and grant money to teachers in hopes of reaching young minds.

Among the conservative groups that the SPLC has labeled “hate groups” are the Center for Security Policy, David Horowitz Freedom Center, Alliance Defending Freedom, Liberty Counsel, and Christians and Jews United for Israel. SPLC official Mark Potok has said, “I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, completely destroy them.”

Some groups resist the label. In June 2018, the SPLC paid more than $3 million as part of a legal settlement to former Muslim extremist Maajid Nawaz for wrongfully placing him and his London-based counter-extremism group, Quilliam, on an anti-Muslim hate list.

Although a federal judge recently dismissed a racketeering lawsuit brought by the nonpartisan Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) against SPLC leaders for blacklisting it as a “hate group,” other lawsuits appear to be in the making.

Liberty Counsel and 60 other organizations are considering filing defamation lawsuits against the SPLC, according to PJMedia.

In a lawsuit already filed, a federal judge in Missouri refused in July to dismiss a defamation lawsuit brought against the SPLC by Craig Nelsen a former heroin addict, who created the Robinson Jeffers Boxing Club (RJBC), a 13-week residency “life treatment” program for men with opioid addictions or other serious problems.

Nelsen said the program was “designed to address the specific challenges unique to white males in the United States, [but that] the program was open to, and would benefit, men in distress of any race.” True to form, the SPLC claimed Nelsen was a neo-Nazi, anti-immigrant, and racist, and that his club was for whites only.

Conservatives—and more than a few leftists—have long complained that the SPLC perennially hypes and exaggerates incidents involving racism in America in order to promote its radical agenda and raise a mountain of money.

JoAnn Wypijewski wrote in The Nation magazine that “No one has been more assiduous in inflating the profile of [hate] groups” than the center’s founder, Morris Dees.

The SPLC “spends most of its time—and money—on a relentless fundraising campaign, peddling memberships in the church of tolerance with all the zeal of a circuit rider passing the collection plate,” Ken Silverstein wrote in Harper’s magazine.

The $518.3-million figure for SPLC assets for the year ended Oct. 31, 2018, was up $41.3 million from $477 million the year before.

The Montgomery, Alabama-based SPLC also beefed up its workforce, reporting having 360 employees and 514 volunteers, compared to 302 employees and 197 volunteers the year before. As a result of the workforce expansion, the group paid out $29.2 million in salaries and benefits, compared to $23.9 million the year before, according to a Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax (IRS Form 990) signed by the 501(c)(3) nonprofit’s secretary-treasurer, Teenie Hutchison on Jan. 31, 2019.

The SPLC acknowledges in the IRS filing that it “has ownership in several foreign corporations,” indirectly owns “several passive foreign investment companies,” and has financial dealings in the Cayman Islands, a tax haven in the Caribbean.

The SPLC famously ignited controversy when it labeled a conservative group, Family Research Council, a “hate group” because it opposes homosexuality on religious grounds. Liberal Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank called it “absurd” for the SPLC to place FRC, which he called “a mainstream conservative thinktank,” “in the same category as Aryan Nations, Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Stormfront and the Westboro Baptist Church.”

But gay rights activist Floyd Lee Corkins acknowledged he acted based on the dubious hate group report, shooting up FRC national headquarters in 2012, nonfatally wounding building manager Leo Johnson before he was subdued. Corkins said he wanted to kill as many FRC employees as possible, after which he planned to rub Chick-fil-A sandwiches in their faces as they died. Chick-fil-A became a target of LGBT protests in 2012 when its CEO, Dan T. Cathy, acknowledged he was “guilty as charged” of supporting anti-gay-marriage initiatives.

The SPLC has tried to spread its radical views to the education sector through its Teaching Tolerance program, which critics say is a means of ideologically indoctrinating students.

In late 2017, the group started handing out money as part of its Educator Grants program “to support projects that promote affirming school climates and educate youth to thrive in a diverse democracy.” The grants “support social justice work at the classroom, school and district level.”

“Teachers and administrators know best how to come up with innovative ways to teach their students to fight bigotry and hate,” Maureen Costello, director of Teaching Tolerance said. “We want to help them turn those ideas into projects that will have a big impact on the way students see themselves and how they view and treat others.”

“Our hope is to build, over time, a network of educators who are enthusiastic about learning from each other and who will share their experiences fighting injustice in their schools with the broader Teaching Tolerance community,” Costello says. “Instead of allowing prejudice and hate to fester in the minds of our young people, we want to cultivate future generations with greater empathy, kindness and understanding for one another.”

On its IRS form, the Center disclosed having given more than $600,000 in grants.

What are educators doing with the money?

Grant recipient Amy Dickerson worked with her students in New Orleans on what should replace Confederate statues.

“We started the project with reflecting on our own identity and generating adjectives to describe ourselves,” Dickerson said. “Students studied the artist Nick Cave, who creates wearable pieces of art called Soundsuits that express his identity and views on social justice.”

In Boston, a grant was used to “empower” “black and brown girls” to “practice self-love, self-advocacy and sisterhood.” Ayanna Pressley, the first black woman elected to the Boston City Council, addressed the crowd. Pressley, a far-left Democrat, is now a U.S. representative from Massachusetts who is a member of the radical so-called Squad headed up by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist from New York.

Teaching Tolerance embraced the Global Climate Strike protest event Sept. 20.

“From the civil rights movement to recent youth-led movements to stop gun violence, we have asked educators to learn from young people’s activism and to instill students with an understanding of their power and value.”

Educators were encouraged to “introduce students to young people around the world who have truly been at the forefront of the fight for environmental justice—and made a difference in the face of apathy. Perhaps most famously, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg has helped inspire global action and conversation through her activism.”

Educators “should consider introducing students to the diverse coalition of young people calling for climate justice.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center did not respond to a request for comment.

Australia: Abortion is decriminalised in New South Wales after weeks of contentious debate and heated protests

This is a storm in a teacup.  Abortion has been decriminalized in NSW for years -- ever since the Heatherbrae case. The 1971 case of R v Wald ruled that abortions do not contravene the laws in certain circumstances.

That case involved a criminal trial of five people – most of whom were health care professionals. The five defendants were involved in performing an abortion at the Heatherbrae clinic in Bondi. All were charged under section 83 of the Crimes Act.

The trial judge found that an abortion is lawful if there is an ‘economic, social or medical ground or reason’ upon which the doctor could honestly and reasonably believe that an abortion could avoid a ‘serious danger to the pregnant woman’s life or her physical or mental health.’

All five defendants were ultimately found ‘not guilty’ on that basis – and the ruling opened the doors to women seeking to terminate a pregnancy for reasons such as financial disadvantage or instability, or fears of social stigma and judgment – factors which may negatively affect a woman’s mental wellbeing.

The judgment also affirmed that abortions do not need to be performed in hospitals – paving the way for women’s health clinics around the state.


NSW parliament has passed laws decriminalising abortion following a marathon debate and weeks of protest. There was applause in the lower house on Thursday as the Abortion Law Reform Act 2019 passed its final hurdle.

It comes after the controversial bill passed the upper house 26 votes to 14 on Wednesday night following nearly 40 hours of discussion - making it the third longest debate in the state's house of review.

The bill, presented to parliament in August by Independent MP Alex Greenwich, takes abortion out of the criminal code and allows terminations up to 22 weeks.

'Thank you to all members for the role you have played in this historic reform ... we can feel proud that part of our legacy will be the decriminalisation of abortion in NSW,' the Member for Sydney said. 

An amendment passed in the upper house recognised doctors performing abortions after 22 weeks could seek advice from a multi-disciplinary team or hospital advisory committee.

'With the passing of this bill, our parliament affirms that we trust women,' Labor MP and bill co-sponsor Jo Haylen said just before the final vote. 'We trust women to make decisions about their own lives and about their own bodies.'

The legislation was opposed by religious groups, anti-abortion activists and several MPs who raised concerns about late-term and sex-selective abortions, conscientious objection and the way the bill was introduced. 

Nationals MP Barnaby Joyce, and former prime minister Tony Abbott were both outspoken in their opposition of the bill.

Joyce described it as the 'slavery debate of our time,' while Abbott accused the NSW government of putting forward 'the most radical abortion laws in this country.'

Liberal and Labor MPs were allowed a conscience vote on the bill.

Tensions in the government reached a climax last week when Liberal MPs Tanya Davies, Mathew Mason-Cox and Lou Amato said they would move a leadership spill motion against Premier Gladys Berejiklian over her handling of the bill.

The rebel MPs, who ultimately withdrew the motion, said it had been made clear that 'at an absolute minimum' four key amendments were required to ensure continued Liberal Party membership.

Ms Davies on Thursday supported amendments made to the bill, saying they created more safeguards and brought the bill to a better place.  

Abortions after 22 weeks are allowed with the approval of two 'specialist medical practitioners.'

All terminations after 22 weeks will now have to be performed in a public hospital.

'Many of us within the Parliament, and also outside in our communities, had concerns with the original bill ... concessions, amendments, changes to the original bill were moved through both houses of Parliament and that is a good thing,' she said.

The legislation that passed on Thursday is more conservative than the initial bill that Greenwich introduced after changes were made following opposition.

Labor MP Penny Sharpe, who is one of 15 co-sponsors of the bill, on Wednesday night said the vote was 119 years in the making.

'The current law has meant women and doctors have a threat of 10 years in jail for making this decision and that not okay,' she told parliament. 'This is a massive step forward for women in this state.'

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

Google trabaja en una certificación oficial para móviles 'gaming', según XDA Developers

Con los móviles se puede jugar casi desde el origen de los teléfonos móviles modernos, aunque la llegada de los smartphones impulsó este concepto de dispositivos de juego móvil. Con el paso de los años, el concepto ha ido evolucionando y a medida que los dispositivos se hacían más potentes, comenzaban las especializaciones. Finalmente, llegaron los móviles 'gaming'.

Teléfonos móviles ya no con una potencia suficiente para ejecutar juegos de gran calibre sino con otras ventajas como sistemas de refrigeración más avanzada, diseños más llamativos o ajustes de software para llevar la experiencia de juego más allá. Ahora, según la información recogida por XDA Developers, Google trabaja en una certificación oficial.

A la luz a través de la documentación de Google

Google

Los propios fabricantes de procesadores están ya diferenciando su catálogo entre chips normales y chips pensados para ejecutar juegos para móviles. Qualcomm y Mediatek cuentan ya, por ejemplo, con sus series G. Los primeros a modo de apellido y los segundos a modo de nombre. Ahora Google pretende ir un paso más allá en materia de recomendaciones con su nueva certificación.

Esta certificación forma parte ya de la documentación interna de Google para enviar a los fabricantes

Cuentan en XDA Developers que conocieron las intenciones de Google ya en el mes de junio, pero no ha sido hasta ahora cuando todo el proceso se ha hecho más oficial. XDA ha obtenido una copia de los últimos requisitos de Google para la instalación de sus Google Mobile Services, los que traen de cabeza a los móviles de Huawei en estos momentos, y en dicho documento aparece una referencia al CDD, o documento de compatibilidad de dispositivos.

Es en este documento, actualizado a día 3 de septiembre, en el que aparece una sección, la número 13, que habla de los requisitos que deben cumplir los teléfonos para poder obtener estos Google Mobile Services. Y precisamente el punto 13.14 es el que habla abiertamente de la certificación para dispositivos de juego.

Los requisitos a cumplir

Vulkan

Según esta sección 13.14 de la documentación de Google, los dispositivos que quieran ser certificados como "dispositivos de juego", o como 'móviles gaming', deben "proporcionar una GPU moderna y actualizada de alto rendimiento además de APIs para la pantalla y una razonable tasa de fotogramas por segundo".

Además, los terminales deben ser compatibles con la API Vulkan Graphics en su versión 1.1, pasar los tests OpenGL ES/Vulkan facilitado por Kronos y cumplir con otros requisitos de compatibilidad, como con Choreographer o co SurfaceFlinger. Junto a todo esto, los dispositivos deberían poder asignar al menos 2.3GB de RAM para su ejecución antes de que el sistema los elimine.

Por el momento no se conoce más sobre esta certificación oficial de Google para 'teléfonos gaming' pero estaremos atentos a cualquier novedad que pueda producirse. Sí se sabe que Google está formando un equipo interno para trabajar con fabricantes de teléfonos móviles y de procesadores en virtud de los nuevos requerimientos que han de cumplirse. Veremos en qué acaba esta certificación, aunque todo apunta a que será una realidad y que se acabará creando una lista pública de dispositivos soportados, del mismo modo que existen los Android Enterprise.

Cómo evitar o eliminar los molestosos callos de los pies

 Cache   
Lamentablemente además de causarnos dolor y muchas molestias, los callos no permiten que nuestros pies luzcan como queremos, bien arreglados y hermosos. Para saber cómo evitarlos, tratar de eliminarlos o reducirlos hablamos con Joaquin Manuel, creador de la línea de esmaltes 7 Free Joaquín Manuel Nail Polish Collection  y quien es un experto en el cuidado de manos y pies. “Los callos pueden aparecer tanto en los dedos como en la planta del pie sobre todo el área que se conoce como la bola del pie, esto es como consecuencia del roce o de poner demasiada presión en el área, ya que la piel reacciona y se protege formando ampollas o úlceras que pueden llegar a ser infecciosas”, comenzó explicándonos el experto. “Al principio puede ser que causen mucha molestia, pero con el paso del tiempo, pueden causar dolor y dificultar el paso y las actividades más cotidianas. Yo he tenido clientas que los callos les molestan hasta cuando usan zapatos deportivos”, añadió. Cómo prevenir y quitar callos Es muy importante que visiten un especialista en el cuidado de manos y pies y se aseguren que tiene todas las certificaciones necesarias pues los callos se deben tratar con mucho cuidado. “Los callos pueden parecer duros y fuertes, pero no por ello se deben rebanar o arrancar, para lograr una estética mejor. Si lo hacemos puede que nos provoquemos alguna lesión, e incluso alguna infección, además de la posibilidad de dañar nuestra piel”, puntualizó Joaquín Manuel. Mi recomendación es la prevención: No utilizar zapatos cerrados que les aprieten Evitar los zapatos que provocan demasiado roce en una determinada área Visitar su especialista en el cuidado de mano y pies regularmente y hacerse un buen pedicure Mantener los pies hidratados Por otro lado, el especialista nos mencionó que lo más aconsejable es buscar una alternativa que te ayude a eliminar los callos definitivamente, pero para ello debemos armarnos de paciencia ya que quitar callos toma mucho tiempo. Remedios caseros para eliminar los callos Utiliza piedra pómez  Remoja tus pies en agua caliente unos 20 minutos. Luego utilizando una piedra pómez suavemente raspa la dureza de lado a lado. Hazlo hasta que consideres que sea necesario, o notes que la piel de la zona donde está el callo está más rosada. OJO ten cuidado de no tocar la parte de piel sana pues podrías lastimarte. Mezcla de limón, ajo y manzanilla seca Mezcla una cucharadita de manzanilla seca con un diente de ajo machacado y zumo de limón, y aplica directamente sobre los callos. Déjalo actuar durante unos 20 minutos y retíralo con agua tibia. Con esto estarás eliminando las células muertas que se hayan acumulado en el callo y además ablandarás la dureza lo que te ayudará a eliminar el callo. Utiliza bicarbonato de sodio Pudiéramos decir que el bicarbonato de sodio, es uno de los productos más efectivos para quitar callos. Disuelve tres cucharadas de bicarbonato de sodio en agua tibia y mantener tus pies en remojo durante unos 30 minutos. Luego puedes raspar con piedra pómez el área y poco lo vas eliminando. Mezcla cebolla, limón y sal, Esta mezcla te ayudará a eliminar bacterias y las células muertas que acumulan los callos porque el limón y la cebolla son buenos ayudando a limpiar la piel y ablandarla, y la sal es un exfoliante natural. ¿Cómo lo aplicas? Corta una rodaja de cebolla y agregarle unas gotas de zumo de limón y sal. Colócalo sobre el callo y cúbrelo con algún tipo de venda que lo mantenga sujeto durante toda la noche. Repite cada noche el mismo procedimiento hasta que los callos desaparezcan. Tomate para quitar callos Extrae la pulpa del tomate y aplícala directamente sobre la piel con callo. Cúbrela con una venda y deja que actúe durante toda la noche. Repite el mismo tratamiento cada noche antes de acostarte para conseguir resultados.

How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they breathe?

After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?

Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own.

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.


The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm

We have all been CO poisoned, some more than others
We have all inhaled carbon monoxide. We are a world of fire users.

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning.
We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn. GET BUSY

Measurement is continuing education at its best. Bob Dwyer, CSME Carbon Monoxide Safety

George Kerr, a pioneer in smoke and carbon monoxide alarm manufacturing passed away in his home during the early morning of July 4, 2017. George will always be remembered for his passion to save lives and protect the health of people through low level carbon monoxide detection and alarming. He lived for over 84 years, beginning his career in fire safety in 1953. “We’ll never know how many lives we’re saving, but I know we are saving a few.” George E. Kerr (1933-2017)

U.S. Carbon Monoxide Laws for each state
National Conference of State Legislatures
As of March 2018, a majority of states have enacted statutes regarding carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, and another 11 have promulgated regulations on CO detectors. Alaska requires detectors approved by the state fire marshal be installed in all dwellings. Connecticut requires them in all new construction, as does New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. Florida also requires them in new construction, and in every room with a boiler. Minnesota passed a law requiring detectors in motor boats.

CO Detectors in U.S. Homes
27 states and the District of Columbia require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings via state statute: Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia (via adoption of the International Residential Code), Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Certain states limit the installation to buildings with fossil-fuel burning devices, others only require the device be installed upon the sale of the property or unit.

Another 11 states require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings regulatorily through the adoption of the International Residential Code or via an amendment to their state’s building code: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wyoming.

CO Detectors in U.S. Schools
California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine and Maryland require carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in school buildings.

CO Detectors in U.S. Hotels and Motels
Fourteen states require the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in hotels and motels under the statute. - Three of those states (New Jersey, Vermont and Wisconsin) have complementary administrative regulations. - Two states (Kansas and Washington) have requirements through administrative regulations alone.

Carbon monoxide safety, we are all in this together, now!

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865, bio link)


Daily News Links Are Below These Opening Questions And Warnings
How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they breathe?

After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?

Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own.

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.


The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm

Standard for Single and Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Alarms
UL 2034
1.3 Carbon monoxide alarms covered by this standard are not intended to alarm when exposed to long-term, low-level carbon monoxide exposures or slightly higher short-term transient carbon monoxide exposures, possibly caused by air pollution and/or properly installed/maintained fuel-fired appliances and fireplaces…

Please Note: "Place a carbon monoxide alarm with a digital display on a seat in the motor vehicle when you are out driving in emergency snow conditions (or always for that specific). Harmful levels of carbon monoxide (CO) can penetrate inside a motor vehicle just due to prevailing winds and exhaust not moving away from the vehicle but under it. If you want to learn more about carbon monoxide, begin measuring it with a personal CO monitor everywhere you go." Bob Dwyer, CSME Carbon Monoxide Safety

Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn. GET BUSY

Residents of Winong, a village of fewer than a thousand people, have since 2016 blamed the power plant for polluting the water and air in area. They say the plant’s operations have depleted the water table, and that any water they can draw up from their wells is salty. They also complain of a constant rain of ash peppering their homes, forcing them to clean up every day. Local children have reportedly been diagnosed with pollution-related ailments, including bronchitis and skin rashes. (More)

El Valencia Basket exhibe su artillería

Galería de fotos del partido (Cipriano Fornas)

La fonteta cierra la serie de tres partidos, en este era  el turno para el primer equipo femenino del Valencia Basket con el Coosur Real Betis en el  encuentro correspondiente a la jornada tres de la Liga ACB. El equipo quiere volver a recargar pilas, después de la derrota de forma holgada ante el  CSKA de Moscú.

En cuanto al equipo,  Juame Ponsarnau recupera a Jordan Loyd que vuelve a la convocatoria tras superar los problemas físicos.  . Los descarte son Vanja Marinkovic y Maurice Ndour , por otra parte Quino Colom debuta con el conjunto taronja.

El partido empezaba , con los primeros puntos anotados por el Valencia Basket   que llevaba la iniciativa del partido , con confianza y soltura . Apenas el Coosur Betis , podía con el equipo valenciano  . Fernando San Emeterio y Guillem Vives enlazaban dos triples seguidos, para acabar con catorce puntos de ventaja el primer cuarto.

Empezaba el segundo cuarto, con la misma sintonía  aunque con menos acierto ofensivo para Valencia Basket , insistiendo desde la línea de tres . Jordan Loyd se marcaba un mate, tras un robo defensivo , con confianza .  Ante el despiste del Valencia, el equipo visitante ogro recortar puntos y acercarse al marcador ( 44-35).

Después del paso por vestuarios, los hombres de Jaume Ponsarnau volvían a coger fuerzas. Loyd junto con Motum , encendian a la fonteta , con un jugada que el estadounidense no pudo encestar.  El Valencia Basket volvía a sumar un mas quince  de ventaja, porque entre otras cosas  el equipo no estaba acertado en el rebote, mientras que Quino Colom empezaba a dejar destellos de su calidad (70- 57).

Último cuarto,  el Coosur Real Betis no había dicho su última palabra  ya que el partido no estaba visto para sentencia y sin hacer mucho ruido  acariciaba la igualada por momentos, aunque fue algo ficticio porque el  conjunto taronja apretó en los instantes finales, para llevarse el partido  que en todo momento fue por delante  y nunca por detrás, en el marcador.

El equipo viajará   a tierras griegas parra jugar el próximo viernes once de octubre a las 19:00 horas ante el Olympiacos.

 

 

 


          

Debut amargo en la Euroliga

 Cache   

El equipo comienza su  quinta  participación en la Euroliga ,con el peor rival posible como el CSKA de Moscow, recién campeón de la competición europea . El ala-pivot senegalés Maurice Ndour podría estrenarse, después de superar su lesión en el brazo, mientras que hasta última hora Jaume Ponsarnau, contaba con la dudad de Jordan Loyd.

El CSKA Moscow  ha perdido hombres importantes, pero ante esta situación se ha reforzado con sustitutos de altura como el exterior Ron Baker que se estrenará, al no estar inscrito en la VTB-League .  El pívot Kosta Koufos , sigue recuperándose de la lesión del pie y ni siquiera ha entrado en la convocatoria

Primeros del  partido,  para el equipo ruso que quería mandar el partido y llevar la delantera en el marcador. A los seis minutos del primer cuarto ya había ocho puntos de diferencias entre los dos equipos, un asedio que el Valencia Basket intentaba aguantar como podía. La afición empezaba a silbar, mientras tanto Jaume Ponsarnau solicitaba tiempo muerto. La reacción llego, en los instantes finales que le sirvió para tomar aire fresco ( 17-24).

El segundo cuarto comenzaba con una buena defensa, del montenegrino Bojan Dubjelevic . Con un guión distinto al primer cuarto, con un Valencia Basket más incisivo y un Marinkovic forzando tiros libres en un momento decisivo. Motum demostraba, porque era uno de los mejores triplistas.  Las sensaciones eran contrariadas, porque no se reflejaban en el marcador ( 38-47).

Después del paso por vestuarios, el equipo visitante volvía a mandar en el marcador para dejar claro que era el campeón de la competición, por ello mostraron una gran ofensiva . Se dice pronto ,pero Hilliard llevaba 22 puntos que estaba imparable.

Último cuarto,  con una separación entre equipos de tan solo  veintidós puntos , hasta que de forma paulatina la distancia y que daba prácticamente el partido finalizado .

El equipo ,con tan solo un día de descanso tiene que volver al modo ACB el próximo domingo a las 17:00 horas, también en la fonteta contra el Coosur Real Betis.

Los costes de trabajar en la nube y por qué muchas empresas no quieren asumirlos

Los costes de trabajar en la nube y por qué muchas empresas no quieren asumirlos

Hoy en día una empresa de nueva creación es muy posible que apueste por llevarse muchos de sus servicios o infraestructuras a la nube. Sin embargo las ya consolidadas, a pesar de que poco a poco van dando pasos en esa dirección tienen en los costes a largo plazo una barrera importante a la hora de dar el salto a la nube.

Fundamentalmente las nuevas empresas ven varios motivos fáciles de entender para apostar por la nube. Por un lado los costes iniciales se reducen muchísimo ya que la mayoría de programas, servicios o infraestructuras son de pago por uso. Por otro lado, es escalable. Si el negocio va bien contratar más usuarios, más potencia en el servidor, más extensiones para la centralita virtual, es coser y cantar. También en caso de que la cosa no vaya según lo previsto y tengamos que reducir personal o incluso cerrar.

La empresa veterana ya tiene hardware y software para utilizar

Una empresa ya consolidada sabe que la inversión que va a realizar en montar un nuevo servidor, programa o servicio la tiene amortizada. Sabe que su número de clientes no subirá como la espuma, pero tampoco bajará. Que tiene los empleados que necesita para sacar a adelante el trabajo y ampliar plantilla tampoco es algo tan habitual.

Cuando habla de mudarse a la nube es el momento de echar números. Y ve que a 10 años le sigue saliendo más rentable invertir en hardware, software o infraestructuras que tiene en su propia oficina. Esa inversión inicial más elevada, le sale más económica que la que le propone la nube. Y es complicado convencerlos.

Porque por mucho que al cabo de 10 años haya que volver a renovar, en la mayoría de los casos la vida útil de programas es un ciclo que no convence a todo el mundo. Por mucho que con la nube siempre tengamos la última versión de un programa o el último hardware para nuestro servidor virtual.

Un ejemplo de esta dualidad de tendencias lo tenemos en los coches de leasing, donde la empresa paga una cuota que comprende todo, desde el coste del vehículo a su mantenimiento. Y llegado el momento de renovar, buscan un modelo nuevo. Otras empresas adquieren su vehículo, y corren con los gastos de mantenimiento y lo exprimen hasta que ya no da más de sí.

Con los datos en la nube muchas organizaciones temen que sus secretos no estén a salvo

Por último una de las grandes ventajas de trabajar en la nube, la movilidad, poder trabajar desde cualquier sitio no es una necesidad para muchas organizaciones que trabajan apegados a su oficina en un horario concreto. Al salir del despacho no quieren saber nada del trabajo. Y el no saber dónde están físicamente sus datos un problema para muchos de ellos que no se fían y consideran que en sus propias instalaciones estarían más seguros.

Quizás todavía haga falta tiempo. La nube es un cambio muy grande y hay que ir haciéndolo poco a poco. ¿Quién le iba a decir a muchas empresas que su centralita sería virtual hace apenas unos años? ¿Y su programa de facturación o el de nóminas en la nube? Muchos solo dan el paso cuando alguien cercano ven que ha apostado por determinado servicio y funciona bien.

NUESTRA VOZ

Para que los pasos no me lloren,
canto.
Para tu rostro fronterizo del alma
que me ha nacido entre las manos:
canto.
Para decir que me has crecido clara
en los huesos amargos de la voz:
canto.
Para que nadie diga: tierra mía!,
con toda la decisión de la nostalgia:
canto.
Por lo que no debe morir, tu pueblo:
canto.
Me lanzo a caminar sobre mi voz para decirte:
tu, interrogación de frutas y mariposas silvestres,
no perderás el paso en los andamios de mi grito,
porque hay un maya alfarero en su corazón,
que bajo el mar, adentro de la estrella,
humeando en las raíces, palpitando mundo,
enreda tu nombre en mis palabras.
Canto tu nombre, alegre como un violín de surcos,
porque viene al encuentro de mi dolor humano.
Me busca del abrazo del mar hasta el abrazo del viento
para ordenarme que no tolere el crepúsculo en mi boca.
Me acompaña emocionado el sacrificio de ser hombre,
para que nunca baje al lugar donde nació la traición
del vil que ato su corazón a la tiniebla inegándote!

Morante de la Puebla resurge de sus propias sombras en la Feria del Pilar

 Cache   
La cara y la cruz, el blanco y el negro. O al revés. Morante de la Puebla en doble versión. De casi Morante a Morantazo, lo que va de quien ni está ni se le espera, al diestro comprometido y artista. Morante apenas fue Morante en el primero, al que no quiso ni ver. No porque fuera una fiera corrupia ante la que pegar la espantada que siempre han dado los toreros con duende, es que no quiso verlo, ni mirarlo. Y entre la bronca, muchos todavía se preguntan el porqué. Pues por gracioso, dijeron algunos. Pero con el cuarto, otro toro feote de la desigual corrida de Garcigrande, las cosas cambiaron, y, cuando nadie lo esperaba, surgieron dos chicuelinas movidas que supieron a gloria, por llenas de gracia. Pero lo mejor estaba por llegar en dos series con la derecha plenas de mando, temple, ajuste, de arte en definitiva. Sobre todo en tres muletazos, que todavía resuenan en la Misericordia. Morantazo, que ahí sí hubo un torero. La oreja le redimió de las gracias primeras. Urdiales venía por el lesionado Manzanares y se encontró con el segundo, de Domingo Hernández, al que toreó con excelentes formas por el pitón derecho. Fueron dos tandas en las que, dentro de la desigualdad, hubo muletazos de la mejor expresión. No desentonaron los naturales y se gustó en un torerísimo final por bajo. Los aceros emborronaron todo. Como en el quinto, un bravucón que embestía a arreones, con el que lo intentó con escasos logros. Cayetano resolvió con una contundente espada dos faenas un tanto difusas a dos toros manejables. Sin apreturas, el público tornaba del beneplácito a la censura, según iba la cosa. Algún muletazo largo, poca templanza y esa suerte suprema que a veces, y ayer no fue la ocasión, lo tapa todo. La expectación de la corrida, que se tradujo en una plaza hasta la bandera, respondió a medias. Al final, el recuerdo de unos retazos del mejor arte. Morante, que se atrevió a cruzar el umbral del compromiso y dio el paso del Morante que no fue ni Morante a Morantazo. Eso que ganamos. FERIA DEL PILAR PLAZA DE LA MISERICORDIA. Domigo, 6 de octubre de 2019. Lleno. Toros de Garcigrande y Domingo Hernández (2º y 6º), desiguales de presentación, de feas hechuras y de poco juego. Destacaron 2º y 4º. MORANTE DE LA PUEBLA, de azul y oro. Pinchazo hondo en los bajos, media y descabello (bronca). En el cuarto, estocada desprendida (oreja). DIEGO URDIALES, de marino y oro. Dos pinchazos y estocada. Aviso (ovación). En el quinto, media y dos descabellos (ovación). CAYETANO, de azul y oro. Estocada (ovación tras petición). En el sexto, estocada (ovación).

Lexus cumple 30 años: de una marca de coches "imposible" a la conquista de la excelencia en el mundo del automóvil

Lexus cumple 30 años: de una marca de coches

"Imposible". Esa palabra resonó cientos de veces en los oídos de Ichiro Suzuki, ingeniero jefe del proyecto Circle F, proyecto de donde nació Lexus en 1989. Para muchos era imposible plantear un coche que fuera estable y confortable, rápido y eficiente, silencioso y ligero, elegante y aerodinámico, cálido y funcional.

En 1989, Lexus acalló bocas a mansalva. Y comenzó a dejar otras abiertas.

Los orígenes de Lexus se gestionaron con rapidez y en secreto. Sólo seis años antes, en agosto de 1983, el entonces presidente de Toyoya, Eiji Toyoda, había planteado a sus hombres de confianza el reto de fabricar el mejor coche de lujo del mundo con estas palabras: “¿Podemos crear un coche de lujo capaz de desafiar a los mejores?”.

Para 1989, más de 1.400 ingenieros y 2.300 técnicos habían trabajado en el Lexus LS con 450 unidades de prueba y un millar de prototipos de motores que darían paso al propulsor V8 4.0 de 253 CV que montó el primer Lexus, un motor con el que Lexus apuntaba directamente al mercado norteamericano.

Todo, mientras resonaba en los oídos de Ichiro Suzuki la palabra "imposible".

Lexus Ls400 Usa 1989

El Lexus LS 400 fue un coche avanzado en lo tecnológico, contaba con unos impecables acabados hechos a mano y con una inigualable calidad de fabricación. En el proceso de fabricación Lexus incluyó 300 controles de calidad nunca vistos antes en Toyota, y la planta de Aichi (Japón) se convirtió en la factoría que menos fallos tenía en el mundo.

En cuestión de dos años, el Lexus LS 400 se convirtió en el mejor coche de lujo del mercado norteamericano, reconocido así por JD Power con el primero de un montón de galardones que en poco tiempo fijaron a la marca premium de Toyota como un referente en Estados Unidos. Y entonces comenzó la aventura de Lexus más allá de Norteamérica. En 1994, Lexus llegó a España.

Takumi, una clave para la excelencia

Takumi es un concepto japonés que sirve para explicar el afán por lograr la excelencia en los coches Lexus desde el primer momento. Un takumi es un artesano. Y en Lexus, los takumi son los maestros artesanos que lideran los procesos de fabricación. No hay ningún takumi en Lexus que no tenga 25 años de experiencia, y no hay en la marca ingenieros de grado más elevado que los ingenieros takumi.

Para que nos hagamos una idea acerca de sus capacidades, basta decir que a los aspirantes de takumi de Lexus se les evalúa realizando varias pruebas de destreza, de entre las que destaca la elaboración de un gato de origami con una sola mano, la mano no dominante, en menos de 90 segundos.

Desde que Eiji Toyoda planteó a los suyos la necesidad de tener el mejor coche del mundo en conceptos tan contrapuestos que a Ichiro Suzuki le saturaron los oídos con la imposibilidad de conseguirlo. Tan imposible era, que sólo con takumi sería posible llevar a cabo este reto.

No sabemos si la papiroflexia está o no presente en la confección de los acabados de Lexus. Lo que sí podemos certificar es que el primer Lexus LS 400 rezumaba una excelente factura en sus acabados. Sin ser probablemente el más bonito ni seguramente el más equipado del momento, sí que fue un producto muy bien conseguido.

Lexus sacó partido de esa excelencia y no dudó en vender su Lexus LS 400 como un producto muy bien acabado, suave y fiable, terminado con unos ajustes precisos que en aquella época no conocían rival.

El anuncio comercial del Lexus LS 400 sosteniendo en equilibrio una pirámide compuesta por 15 copas de champán colocadas sobre el capó mientras el coche rodaba a casi 230 km/h sobre un banco de pruebas representó un serio toque de atención para todo el sector. Lo imposible se había hecho posible.

Hoy, los ingenieros takumi inspeccionan de forma manual las piezas más importantes de los vehículos. Apenas hay unos pocos takumi en cada planta de Toyota, pero su papel resulta imprescindible en la fabricación de Lexus.

Lexus marcó el camino hacia la excelencia en el trato con el cliente

Omotenashi

La calidad que buscaba Eiji Toyoda para Lexus no se limitaba a tener el mejor coche de lujo del mundo. Lexus debía ser una marca que acogiera al cliente en su concesionario y lo tratara de forma distinguida.

Omotenashi es el concepto japonés que engloba la filosofía de Lexus en este apartado. Con orígenes a caballo entre la ceremonia del té y las artes marciales, omotenashi no tiene una traducción sencilla, pero habla de la hospitalidad llevada hasta lo máximo, habla de la pasión por lograr que otra persona se sienta a gusto.

Muy presente en la cultura japonesa, el omotenashi guía la forma de hacer de Lexus en su red comercial desde el primer día. Y, de hecho, algunos de los protocolos que estableció Lexus en su red comercial fueron pasando poco a poco a otras marcas, para acabar siendo prácticamente un estándar del sector.

Entre las características que definían a los concesionarios Lexus estaban que el lugar resultara acogedor y el trato al cliente, excepcional, haciendo de sus necesidades una absoluta prioridad. Si Lexus era un producto excepcional, igual de excepcional debía ser el proceso de compra y las acciones de posventa.

Así, Lexus destacó por ofrecer servicios como los dos primeros mantenimientos de forma gratuita, mayores facilidades a la hora de recepcionar el vehículo, incluyendo la recogida a domicilio del coche para realizar sus revisiones en el taller. A la entrega, Lexus decidió que sus coches debían devolverse completamente limpios, de manera que el paso por el taller supusiera para sus clientes poco menos que un nuevo estreno de su propio coche.

El camino de Lexus a través de los años

Lexus 30 Aniversario 1 Lexus UX (2019)

En los 30 años que han transcurrido desde el lanzamiento del Lexus LS 400, la marca ha ido incorporando otros pilares sobre los que ahora se asienta su política de marca. Además de la calidad encarnada por esos takumi y el cuidado por el cliente representado por el concepto omotenashi, Lexus dio en 2005 un paso adelante, y ese paso se llamó hibridación.

Un punto de inflexión llegó cuando Lexus anunció que abandonaba el diésel, allá por 2013. Hoy por hoy, nadie duda que la marca premium de Toyota está volcada con los sistemas híbridos de gasolina y electricidad.

Lexus LF-NX Crossover Lexus LF-NX Crossover (2013)

Un nuevo paso adelante lo dio Lexus cuando decidió innovar por completo en diseño y presentó en el Salón de Frankfurt de 2013 un concept-car que sentó la base para muchos de los diseños que estamos viendo hoy en el mercado, y no sólo firmados por la japonesa.

El último paso adelante lo ha dado Lexus, en buena sintonía con su matriz Toyota, trascendiendo el mundo estricto del automóvil. Si Toyota anda buscando su hueco en soluciones de movilidad aptas para todos los públicos, Lexus se quiere acercar cada vez más al mundo del lifestyle, el estilo de vida.

En esta vertiente, Lexus estructura su interés en tres ramas: arte y música, gastronomía y viajes, deporte y vida social. Y todo esto, de hecho, entronca bien con aquella marca de excelencia que quiso crear en su día Eiji Toyoda.

Conduciendo con una mirada hacia el pasado

Lexus 30 Aniversario 1 400

Para celebrar su 30º aniversario, Lexus ha dispuesto una jornada de pruebas con siete modelos clásicos de la marca. Por centrarnos en algunos, hablaremos de tres de ellos: Lexus LS 400 (1989), Lexus IS 200 (1998) y Lexus SC 430 (2001).

El resto de los clásicos son los Lexus RX 400h (2003), Lexus GS 450h (2005), Lexus LS 460L (2006) y Lexus LS 600h (2006). Demasiado modernos para poner a prueba los primeros pasos de la marca en el mundo. Y no hablemos ya del salvaje Lexus LC 500, que probamos a fondo en su día.

Todas las fichas técnicas de los clásicos puestos a disposición de la prensa, en la siguiente galería:

Por cierto, que las unidades clásicas pertenecen no sólo a Lexus sino también a propietarios particulares, que las han cedido para la ocasión. Y todas ellas han sido viniladas en blanco para el evento, a fin de conseguir una mejor apariencia y una mejor experiencia, sin que apenas nadie note la modificación a primera vista. Lo de los takumi y el omotenashi, y todo eso.

Abundando en la lógica del evento, recupero unas palabras de Maya Angelou que nos ha brindado Lexus, y que dicen así:

"Las personas olvidarán lo que dices y lo que haces, pero nunca olvidarán cómo las hiciste sentir".

Cosas de la amígdala. Vamos a por los coches.

Lexus LS 400: Space Oddity

Lexus 30 Aniversario 1 500 Lexus LS 400 (1989)

El Lexus LS 400 supuso el pistoletazo de salida para la marca Lexus. Fue aquel famoso mejor coche de lujo del mundo que quiso lanzar Eiji Toyoda. Y las primeras impresiones que se perciben al ponerse a los mandos de uno de ellos hablan de pulcritud y de sobriedad.

Pulcritud en la elección de materiales, pulcritud en la forma de combinarlos, pulcritud en el ensamblaje de los elementos. Es un coche limpio, soberbio en el buen sentido, rezuma calidad y esplendor. Y por fuera transmite esa sobriedad que tanto gustaba en Estados Unidos a partir de los años 70. No extraña nada de nada que diese la campanada en su día.

Cuenta con ajustes poco frecuentes a finales de los 80. Reglaje eléctrico de la altura del cinturón de seguridad, botón para elegir entre dos ajustes de dureza de la suspensión, asientos traseros calefactados con botones situados en una mesa abatible... En la siguiente galería de fotos podemos ver esos y otros detalles.

Al ponernos en marcha, descubrimos una estabilidad y una precisión que incluso hoy sorprenden. Es un transatlántico navegando firme por las carreteras del Penedès, donde nos encontramos. Sereno e imponente, resulta cómodo al volante y también en las plazas traseras (salvo por el espacio libre en las rodillas).

Nos combinamos en la experiencia Gerard Farré (coches.net#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/143192&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com) y yo, turnándonos en la diversión de ser chófer y pasajero de un coche que, sin aspirar a ser más de lo que muestra, con el paso de los años mantiene una esencia de berlina señorial que para sí querrían muchos. Quizá no fuera el mejor coche de lujo del mundo... pero hoy por hoy sigue siendo un cochazo.

En mis oídos suena David Bowie, mientras con el móvil grabo un pequeño vídeo para Gerard, que está que no cabe en sí de gozo, sentado al volante del sobrio pero sin embargo emocionante Lexus LS 400. Ground Control to Major Tom...

Repaso mis notas. Según dijeron en su día muchos cuñaos de la época, era "imposible" tener un coche que a la vez fuera estable y confortable, rápido y eficiente, silencioso y ligero, elegante y aerodinámico, cálido y funcional.

Pues menos mal que era imposible... Salvo por el tema de la eficiencia, que no lo puedo atestiguar por motivos casi obvios, el resto de los condicionantes que pesaban sobre el proyecto Circle F se diluyeron, dando vida a un coche más que posible. Lo veo, lo toco, lo siento. Fue una realidad.

Lexus IS 200: Good vibrations

Lexus 30 Aniversario 1 465 Lexus IS 200 (1998)

Cambio de ambiente de manera radical y me voy a por el Lexus IS 200. Viendo su exterior sufro un flechazo instantáneo a cuenta de un Honda Civic MB3 que tuve un tiempo, y busco en el Lexus ese punto desenfadado que puede aportarme una berlina media como esta, que con sus 155 CV para 1.360 kg promete diversión.

Y vaya, si cumple... Hay dos unidades disponibles, una manual y otra automática, y realizo mi recorrido con una que tiene cambio automático. Es impresionante su entrega de potencia y par, hasta el punto de cortarme un poquito las ganas de buscarle las cosquillas al coche, que tampoco es plan.

En carretera, y con todas las precauciones posibles, el Lexus IS 200 se muestra vivaracho y fiel a lo que se le pide. Es un coche que aunque no destaca por su ligereza consigue ser ágil. Acelera de fábula, se mantiene en el sitio, gira de forma fiel. Y esto, sin renunciar a acabados bien trabajados. De ellos, me quedo con el panel de instrumentos, compuesto por tres esferas de aspecto intachable.

Y de repente me acuerdo de los Beach Boys. I'm pickin' up good vibrations. She's giving me the excitations... Y de pronto siento que todo está bien.

De vuelta al punto de encuentro, paso momentáneamente por la unidad que lleva cambio manual, con una palanca rematada en un pomo de tacto algo discutible, y decido que en este caso el caballo ganador no precisa de un pedal de embrague.

Lexus SC 430: Forever young

Lexus 30 Aniversario 240 Lexus SC 430 (2001)

Para completar mi tríada, y dejando de lado otras unidades probadas, vamos ahora con el Lexus SC 430. Un capricho, mira... Confieso que le he echado el ojo enseguida, y parece que no he sido el único. Hay dos unidades a disposición de la prensa, y las dos tienen más pretendientes que Penélope. Por probar, probamos hasta si podemos viajar más de dos personas en uno de ellos. Ni de coña. Los asientos traseros están de adorno y ahí no hay quien quepa.

Por fin salgo con el descapotable. De primeras se le nota algo pesadete, la verdad. Su motor V8 4.3 desarrolla 286 CV con 419 Nm para mover 1.740 kg, y aunque sean potencia y par sobrados, esa masa tiene sus inercias. Supongo que nos pasa a todos. Con la edad nos volvemos algo más lentos y pesados, más sosegados, aunque intentamos conservar ese nervio que nos hizo triunfar en el pasado.

Con todo, la experiencia que proporciona un cabrio de 4,52 metros como este mientras sopla una suave brisa por la carretera es de esas cosas que hacen que uno flote a unos dos metros de altura, centímetro arriba o abajo. Y la estabilidad que me brinda el Lexus SC 430 contribuye a mi bienestar.

Miro a mi alrededor. El lujo de un interior decididamente Lexus me saluda con su cuero y sus plásticos de gran calidad, y veo ahí el resultado de años y años de experiencia. Takumi.

Y de repente empiezo a canturrear...

Let's dance in style, let's dance for a while.
Heaven can wait we're only watching the skies
Hoping for the best, but expecting the worst,
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever.
We don't have the power, but we never say never.
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip,
The music's for the sad man.

Can you imagine when this race is won?
Turn our golden the faces into the sun
Praising our leaders, we're getting in tune.
The music's played by the madman...

Forever young,
I want to be forever young.
Do you really want to live forever?
Forever, and ever...

Y vuelvo a casa. Y toco de nuevo el suelo. Omotenashi.

  • GAROU: Mark of the Wolves por 6,99 euros. Dos décadas después, nos resistimos a creer que GAROU: Mark of the Wolves se trata del canto del cisne de la saga Fatal Fury. No solo porque se prometió una secuela, sino porque es, de lejos, uno de los mejores juegos jamás hechos por SNK.

  • Moon Patrol por 6,99 euros. Un shooter espacial realmente único: Irem nos propuso limpiar la luna de amenazas a bordo de un vehículo lunar a seis ruedas. De hecho, el modo en el que se adapta al terreno sigue siendo fascinante. 
  • PUNCH-OUT!! por 6,99 euros. Seguramente lo habrás jugado en NES, SNES o Wii, pero la experiencia de boxeo nintendera original se jugaba con dos monitores y esta versión te permite adaptar (y con acierto) ambos a la pantalla de Switch.
  • TRACK & FIELD por 6,99 euros. Quizás no se considerara deporte per se, pero Konami nos hizo sudar la gota gorda a la hora de machacar botones en sus olimpiadas particulares.

  • Space Harrier por 6,99 euros. Si bien SEGA Dominó los recreativos durante casi dos décadas, la experiencia futurista de Space Harrier (lanzado en 1985) es una de las más icónicas y reconocibles. ¿Será por los mamuts ciclópeos?
