Embun

 Cache   


    Aku dan kamu sudah saling kenal sejak seminggu yang lalu. Dalam rentang waktu tersebut aku tahu kamu tidak sedingin es seperti yang pernah kuterka sebelumnya. Di balik perawakanmu yang keras seperti karang di laut, bermukim satu siluet lembut yang penuh kasih. Mungkin kamu akan tersenyum kecil tatkala membaca perumpamaan ini. Dan bisa jadi kamu tertawa karena kata-kata tadi terasa picisan. Biarpun begitu, aku tak peduli. Karena hanya itu yang mampu kuungkap.


    Sebenarnya aku ingin berucap aku senang bersamamu. Setiap gerak-gerikmu seperti magnet yang membuatku terus-terusan menatapmu. Aku penasaran. Daya tarik macam apa yang kamu punya. Bahkan aku juga tak bisa membunuh rasa penasaran itu saat rasa kantuk sudah mennguasaiku.Ini gila! Belum pernah aku terinfeksi oleh sesuatu yang berasal dari makhluk yang disebut manusia.
    Berdua denganmu, seperti mengenakan sweater hangat saat embun pagi masih mengambang di puncak-puncak bukit. Kamu hangat, dan kehangatan itu aku yakini bukan sebagai kehangatan sesaat. Tiap jengkal sweater itu, yang membungkus kulitku, mampu membuatku  bernafas sebagaimana mestinya.
    Suatu kali pernah kudapati kamu bermenung di balkon. Kamu pandangi rekahan-rekahan merah dan magenta di ufuk barat. Tatapanmu berat dan sendu. Jika aku adalah langit yang kamu tatap itu, tak akan kubiarkan sejumput sendu bersemanyam di kedua bola matamu. Akan kuganti sang merah dan magenta menjadi beberapa barisan aurora.
    "Apa yang kau pikirkan?" tanyaku setelah berdiri di sebelahmu.
    "Langit itu," ucapmu datar.
    "Ada apa dengan langitnya?"
    Kamu mendesah pelan. Ringan kepalamu menoleh padaku lalu kita pun bertatapan untuk beberapa detik. "Langit itu seperti hati. Kadang mendung, kadang cerah."
    Senyap. Desau angin sore menelisik helai-helai rambut kita. Kata-katamu yang baru saja kudengar sudah membuatku tahu bahwa ada sesuatu yang menyesaki pikiranmu. Aku tidak tergerak untuk memberi pertanyaan lanjutan.
    Sore semakin jingga, cerah tanpa awan. Sebelum meninggalkanmu dan lamunananmu, kucari sebuah kata yang bisa kubaca dari wajahmu. Kamu masih memandangi langit senja di ufuk barat. Kamu tak lagi menoleh padaku. Dan tanpa kuhendaki, senja yang hangat terasa seperti pagi yang basah dan berembun. Dingin.

* * *


    Pagi-pagi buta aku terjaga. Tidak biasanya aku begini. Kulirik jam dinding. Pukul tiga dini hari. Aku mengosok-gosok kedua mataku kemudian turun dari ranjang. Rasa haus yang mendadak muncul secara otomatis menuntunku menuju dapur di lantai dasar.
    Setiap anak tangga yang kuinjak berdecit. Mau tidak mau kucoba untuk turun dengan pelan. Aku tidak ingin membangunkan yang lainnya. Apalagi kalau sampai membangunkanmu. Terhitung sejak percakapan kita tadi sore, baik aku maupun kamu tidak saling menyapa. Hanya seulas senyum yang saling kita berikan bila kita berpas-pasan. Dalam konsep ini, aku yakin senyum itu hanyalah sebentuk perjuangannmu untuk menyatakan bahwa kamu baik-baik saja. Padahal sebenarnya tidak.
    Langkahku terhenti pada anak tangga terakhir. Lampu ruang tengah masih menyala, berikut televisi berukuran tiga puluh inchi. Aku menggeleng. Ingin tahu siapa yang telah melakukan kesembronoan ini. Mataku tertumbuk pada remote televisi yang ada di atas meja. Reflek aku melangkah menuju meja tersebut lalu tersadar bahwa ada seseorang yang sedang tidur pulas di sofa panjang. Rupanya kamu tertidur di sini,membiarkan seorang presenter di layar kaca bercuap-bercuap sendiri tanpa ada yang menonton.
    Sebelum mendapatimu, kedua kelopak mataku berat. Namun, seperti yang sudah-sudah, kedua bola mataku akan terbuka bila  parasmu telah ada di hadapku. Aku yakin Tuhan pasti memahatmu dengan ketelatenan yang tinggi sehingga tak pernah kuasa aku mengabaikan segala yang ada padamu. Bila ada yang bilang cinta itu tak melirik tampilan fisik, itu perlu diklarifikasi. Karena pada hakikatnya apa yang tampak di luar, mempengaruhi apa yang akan tampak dari dalam. Kendatipun begitu, tak perlu salahkan aku kalau aku tergoda karena parasmu.
    Kamu tidur seperti anak kecil. Berbantalkan sweater abu-abu tanpa selimut. Aku tersenyum. Kamu tetap menarik, bahkan saat tidur.
    "Kamu belum tidur?"
    Aku berbalik. Seorang laki-laki berusia setengah abad tengah menatapku. Aku bergeming, "Saya terjaga."
    "Dia?" laki-laki yang biasa dipanggil Koh Achan itu kini melirik kamu yang masih tidur, di belakangku. "Kenapa dia tidur di situ?"
    "Ketiduran." Ujarku datar lalu menunjuk televisi yang masih menyala. Koh Achan geleng-geleng. Segera kumatikan televisi dan ia pun berlalu. Kembali ke kamarnya di lantai atas.
    Sekarang, ruang tengah senyap. Cuma ada aku dan kamu di sini. Indera penglihatanku kembali menikmati parasmu dalam decak kagum yang tak pernah terucap. Bukannya aku egois, hanya saja aku tak ingin kamu berpikir bahwa aku tipikal orang yang mengejar kesempurnaan jasmani sementara kesempurnaan rohani dikesampingkan. Jadi, akan lebih manusiawi kalau rasa kagumku padamu tetap kupendam di dasar hati. Dan jika waktu bermurah hati padaku, aku yakin kekaguman itu akan keluar sendiri dengan cara yang tak diduga-duga. Seperti orang bilang, semua indah pada waktunya.

    Kamu menggeliat. Memeluk tubuhmu sendiri untuk memberikan sedikit kehangatan. Sontak aku sadar. Malam semakin dingin dan sudah pasti dalam kondisi macam ini kamu butuh selimut. Aku menggaruk-garuk kepalaku yang tak gatal. Intuisiku bilang, tidak seharusnya aku menikmati parasmu manakala kamu tengah kedinginan. Kutinggalkan kamu sejenak lalu melangkah ke kamarmu yang pintunya masih terbuka. Kupagut selimut tebal bermotif daun-daun bambu. Tanpa kumau, aroma tubuhmu tercium.
    Selimutmu lucu juga. Karena di setiap sudutnya ada gambar kepala Panda. Aku tersenyum kecil. Mencoba menerka bagaimana parasmu waktu kecil dulu. Pasti kamu tidak kalah lucu bila dibandingkan dengan hewan herbivora itu. Pipi yang berisi, bola mata yang besar, dan mulut yang masih belum memiliki gigi. Kamu pasti menggemaskan.
    Kututup pintu kamarmu tanpa menimbulkan suara gaduh. Aku yakin, kamu akan terus tidur di sofa itu sampai fajar menyingsing. Jadi bisa kupastikan kamu tidak akan kembali ke kamarmu kecuali kalau kamu ingin menaruh selimut pandamu di tempatnya semula.
    Kamu masih di atas sofa. Memeluk dirimu sendiri dalam keadaan mata terpejam. Mungkin mimpimu terlalu monoton atau bisa jadi kamu tidak sedang mimpi sama sekali. Eksperesi wajahmu datar dan hanya hela lepas nafasmu yang bisa kudengar. Segera kuusir dingin yang masih menggerayangimu dengan menutupi tubuhmu dengan selimut. Kamu kembali menggeliat, aku berhati-hati. Takut kalau sentuhan selimut yang baru saja menghangatkanmu merusak tidur pulasmu.
    Kamu tidak kedinginan lagi. Aku senang.
    Kupadamkan lampu ruang tengah, agar lelapmu semakin nyaman. Selepas itu, aku memasuki dapur yang bersisian dengan tangga ke lantai atas. Kuraih cangkir kaca yang tertangkup di atas meja. Di sebelah cangkir itu, kulihat sekotak teh celup berikut sebungkus gula pasir. Sekarang, rasa kantukku benar-benar sudah hilang. Satu-satunya yang bisa kulakukan sekarang adalah menanti pagi. Dan sepertinya, secangkir teh panas bisa membuat penantianku sedikit lebih menyenangkan.
    Aroma teh yang telah kuseduh cukup nikmat. Kuteguk teh berwarna cokelat kemerahan itu perlahan. Merasakan manisnya di lidah lalu menikmati hangatnya saat melewati tenggorokan lalu berhenti di lambung.
    Sepuluh menit lagi jam dinding di ruang tengah akan menunjukkan pukul empat dini hari. Aku tidak ambil pusing. Di malam yang dingin ini, aku hanya ingin merenungi keberadaanku. Ngomong-ngomong, kenapa aku bertemu denganmu di tempat seperti ini? Barangkali kamu akan menjawab bahwa memang takdir lah yang menyebabkan pertemuan itu terjadi.
    Sebenarnya aku tidak begitu suka dengan sesuatu yang berbau liburan, apalagi berlibur di puncak. Tapi, aku tidak bisa menolak ajakan Lili saat ia memberitahuku tentang rencananya menghabiskan libur semester di alam terbuka. Ia bahkan merajuk pada ibu dan ayahku agar ia bisa membawaku turut serta dalam agenda liburannya. Ia sukses.
    Alhasil, di hari pertama aku menempati villa Lili, aku bertemu denganmu. Waktu itu perbukitan di sekitar villa tidak bisa dilihat dengan jelas. Embun turun dengan ketebalan yang hebat sampai-sampai aku merasa sedang berada di atas awan. Dingin sedikit menusuk tulang, juga membuat bulu-bulu halus di leherku meremang. Aku, yang saat itu sedang duduk santai di teras villa, dikejutkan oleh suara klakson mobil. Itu kamu.
    Kamu keluar dari mobil seraya menjinjing sebuah koper berukuran sedang. Bersamaan dengan itu, seorang laki-laki paruh baya keluar dari sisi mobil yang berlawanan, Koh Achan. Baik kamu maupun pamanmu itu, memiliki tiggi dan postur tubuh yang sama. Hanya saja, kamu lebih muda dan tentunya lebih menarik di mataku. Bukannya aku menyanjung atau membual, tapi memang demikianlah adanya. Saat itu, darahku langsung berdesir pada pandangan pertama.
    Tidak terpikir olehku bahwasanya kamu juga memiliki rasa humor yang bagus. Kamu mudah menulari tawamu pada siapa saja, termasuk aku. Lili, Rila, dan Anton bahkan seringkali kesulitan untuk menahan tawa karena guyonan-guyonan segarmu. Kata Koh Achan, 'lucu' adalah kata yang paling tepat untuk mendeskripsikan siapa dirimu. Kendatipun demikian, ada sebagian dari diriku yang ingin menguak sesuatu dari dirimu. Apakah dibalik derai tawamu itu pernah mengalir air mata? Apakah dibalik wajah yang selalu tersenyum itu pernah tergores luka? Aku sangat penasaran dan sayangnya pertanyaan itu masih kupendam.

    Dari hari ke hari, aku seperti terlupa tentang rasa engganku untuk menikmati liburan di villa Lili. Aku tak kunjung jengah bersepeda di alam hijau, bersantap barbeque tiap malam, bersantai di halaman belakang sembari menyaksikan air terjun, dan berbagi cerita tiapkali kita semua berkumpul di ruang tengah. Aku bisa menikmati semua itu karena ada kamu.
    Dua hari lalu, baru kutahu kalau kamu sudah memiliki seseorang yang spesial. Bahkan, di antara obrolan-obrolan kita, kamu juga menyinggung tentang hubungan manismu dengan orang spesial itu. Walaupun sebagian hatiku tidak ikhlas menerima kenyataan ini, tapi aku masih tak kuasa memalingkan mata darimu. Barangkali beberapa urat syarafku tidak lagi berfungsi secara optimal. Sehingga aku masih mengagumimu untuk alasan yang irrasional. Ya, aku sadar diri. Kamu tidak bisa kumiliki.
    Rila dan Anton sesekali menggodaimu dengan kata 'pernikahan'. Menanggapi kata itu kamu tersenyum lebar tanpa memberi ungkapan yang muluk-muluk. Dan Lili, sepupumu yang manis itu, tak pernah bosan menggodaimu sampai akhirnya pipimu bersemu merah. Sementara aku, jauh merasa lebih baik untuk tersenyum lebar saat melihat mereka menggodaimu. Aku tersenyum bukan karena aku bahagia dengan guyonan mereka, tapi aku hanya menyembunyikan rasa sakitku yang tak tertahan. Aku tidak mau mendramatisir keadaan dengan air mata berlinang. Itu bukan aku. Sesakit apa pun, senyumku masih tetap sama. Tetap hangat tapi menyimpan makna yang kadang berlawanan dengan kenyataan.
    "Hai," satu sapaan berlabuh di telingaku. Sontak lamunanku terhenti. "Tidak tidur?"
    "Aku terjaga."
    Kamu menaruh salah satu tanganmu di mulut, menguap. Kantukmu masih bergelantungan di pelupuk mata. "Kenapa tidak tidur lagi?"
    Aku angkat bahu. Tersenyum.
    Kamu mendekat. Kemudian menarik kursi yang ada di sebelahku. Sekarang, kita duduk bersisian. Denyut jantungku seketika memburu.
    "Apa yang kamu pikirkan?"
    "Banyak," ujarku hambar.
    "Oh, ya?"
    Aku mengangguk. Nyaris tanpa ekspresi. Aku tak mau kamu menyelami apa yang sedang kurasakan. Tidak boleh.
    "Ceritakan padaku salah satunya."
    "Haruskah?"
    Kamu tersenyum, "kalau kamu keberatan, aku tak memaksa."
    Akhirnya, aku penuhi permintaanmu. Mumpung di ruang ini hanya ada aku dan kamu, kita. Saat-saat yang tak pernah kubayangkan akan ada di dalam hidupku.
    Aku mulai bercerita, tentang kisah cintaku yang tak pernah berakhir bahagia. Jujur, cinta itu seperti petir. Tidak ada yang bisa mencegahnya terjadi, hal itu terjadi secara alamiah tanpa rekayasa manusia. Kedengarannya mungkin agak puitis, tapi memang itulah satu-satunya filosofiku tentang cinta.
    Kamu mengangguk pelan, kemudian menatapku sendu.
    "Intinya, apa itu cinta masih merupakan tanda tanya besar bagiku. Karena itulah aku masih single sampai detik ini."
    "Begitu, ya." Timpalmu tanpa meninggikan suara.
    "Apa?"
    Mulutmu mengatup rapat. Kedua matamu menatapku lurus, seolah-olah ada sesuatu yang kamu cari di kedua bola mataku. Setelah itu, kamu bangkit dari kursi lalu mendekati jendela dapur. Mendadak aku menjadi arca. Tak berucap sepatah kata pun.
    "Sebentar lagi pagi," jelasmu datar. "Berbahagialah, karena pagi ini kamu masih hidup untuk mencari arti cinta."
    Usai berkata demikian, kamu beranjak dari hadapanku. Dan sementara itu, aku masih menjadi arca di depan secangkir teh manis yang kini telah dingin.
    Aku, kamu, dan cinta. Sukar dipahami.

This Israeli startup is hitching a ride with NASA to make ‘space meat’

 Cache   

Astronauts don’t have to eat astronaut ice cream anymore.

Thanks to White Castle, Burger King, Dunkin’, and Subway, consumers have been thinking beyond meat (or perhaps Beyond Meat?) lately. One startup wants us to think beyond the planet, too. Aleph Farms, the company that claims title to growing the world’s first lab-grown steak, has taken one small step on its journey to make a giant leap toward the future of food—by hitching a ride to the International Space Station and making lab-grown meat, 248 miles away from any natural resources.

Favorable Views of Federal Agencies

 Cache   
From Pew:
Despite historically low levels of public trust in the federal government, Americans across the political spectrum continue to overwhelmingly express favorable opinions of a number of individual federal agencies, including the Postal Service, the National Park Service, NASA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And majorities of both Republicans and Democrats now express favorable views of the FBI, reflecting a rebound in GOP perceptions after a decline in recent years.
Of the 16 agencies asked about in a national survey by Pew Research Center, conducted Sept. 5-16 among 2,004 U.S. adults, 14 are viewed more favorably than unfavorably by the public.
 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is the sole agency asked about in the survey viewed more negatively (54% unfavorable) than positively (42% favorable), while the public is divided in its view of the Department of Education (48% favorable, 48% unfavorable).

La Diputación de Alicante abrirá una nueva conexión viaria entre Alicante, Sant Joan y El Campello

 Cache   
El presidente de la Diputación de Alicante, Carlos Mazón, ha visitado esta mañana el municipio de Sant Joan d’Alacant donde ha traslado a su alcalde, Jaime Albero, el compromiso de la Diputación de impulsar de forma inmediata el proyecto de construcción de una glorieta en la CV-772 que mejore las comunicaciones de esta localidad con las playas y con El Campello y Alicante. “Para la Diputación de Alicante es una prioridad absoluta resolver cuanto antes esta actuación que permitirá dar salida al PAU 5 y al parque móvil de los tres municipios, mejorando así las conexiones entre ellos”, ha resaltado Mazón. En este sentido, ha recordado que ya se ha consignado una partida de 18.000 euros en los presupuestos provinciales de 2019 para la redacción del proyecto, al tiempo que ha agradecido a los ayuntamientos su implicación para la cesión de los terrenos. El presidente, que ha estado acompañado por la vicepresidenta de la institución provincial, Julia Parra, se ha reunido en primer lugar en el Ayuntamiento, donde ha firmado en el libro de honor, con el alcalde y con el vicealcalde, Santiago Román, para abordar las distintas necesidades de la localidad. En este punto, y con el fin de atender la petición del consistorio, Mazón ha mostrado, además, la predisposición de la Diputación de compartir algunas de las instalaciones que son de propiedad provincial con servicios municipales colindantes. Este sería el caso de parte de la parcela del Instituto Alicantino de la Familia Pedro Herrero con el Centro de Salud del municipio y el Colegio Público Lo Romero. “Gran parte del patrimonio provincial reside en el municipio de Sant Joan y por ello es importante compartir determinados espacios para ofrecer mejores servicios a los ciudadanos y favorecer el libre tránsito de los profesionales”, ha destacado Mazón. Por su parte, Albero ha valorado positivamente “todos aquellos proyectos puestos encima de la mesa y que han tenido tan buena acogida por parte del presidente de la Diputación”. “Quisiera poner en valor esa concepción de que todos, independientemente de qué administración sea, colaboremos para dar servicio y mejores instalaciones e infraestructuras para los vecinos y vecinas”, ha concluido.

It's not as simple as the media tries to portray it

Important article at CONSORTIUM NEWS by John Kiriakou.  Here's the opening:



The news is dominated by “the whistleblower,” the CIA officer who reported to the CIA Inspector General (IG) that President Donald Trump may have committed a crime during a conversation with the president of Ukraine.  I’ve been fascinated by the story for a couple of reasons. 
First, as a whistleblower and a former CIA officer, I know what must have been going through the guy’s mind as he was coming to the decision to make a report on the president of the United States.  That is, if he is a real whistleblower. 

If he’s a whistleblower, and not a CIA plant whose task it is to take down the president, then his career is probably over.  Intelligence agencies only pay lip service to whistleblowing. A potential whistleblower is supposed to go through the chain of command as the current whistleblower did.  If an employee has evidence of waste, fraud, abuse, illegality, or threats to the public health or public safety, he is supposed to go to the Inspector General.  The IG, then is supposed to go to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI).  And when the DNI investigates and finds the complaint credible, he then takes it to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.  That sounds straightforward, but it’s not. 


Check out the whole article.  Grasp that it's not necessarily as simple and straightforward as the media wants to portray it.

"Iraq snapshot" (THE COMMON ILLS):
Wednesday, October 2, 2019.  The corruption in the Biden family is a reflection on Joe and in Iraq the security forces attack the protesters.


Starting in the US with the race for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination and starting with the still fading 'front runner' Joe Biden.  War Hawk Joe is the choice of those who would do nothing.  The demands and the needs of people in 2019?  Ignore them, says Joe.  Medicare For All, they don't deserve it.  He's not going to a damn thing.  I would say "except speak a little better than Donald Trump" but Joe can't speak better as we all know.

He certainly can't 'restore ethics' to the White House.  Not with his family.  In recent weeks, a great deal has been rightly made about his niece Caroline Biden.  A few years after she got to walk on assaulting a police officer (if she were African-American, she'd probably been killed in response), Caroline stole over $100,000 by charging -- to a credit card that she had stolen -- purchases at a drug store.  Was the buying drugs?  That's the first question the press should be asking.  As Marcia noted last night, it's doubtful she racked up over $100,000 in charges on toothpaste and tampons.  The second question the press should be asking is what happened to the two men who found Joe's granddaughter's credit card?  When Naomi Biden lost her credit card, two men found it and used it for three purchases.  What sentence did they receive because they charged no where near $100,000.  At least one of those men were African-American.

Most importantly, the press should be asking about the charges.  Caroline was not charged as she should have been.  The press needs to ask why?  Were favors called in?  She was guilty as hell, that's reality.  If a plea deal was made on that case, that needs to be explained.  As it stands, in the state of New York, she should have additional charges the most pertinent being forgery.  There's no way she charged over $100,000 without signing a slip at some point -- a slip with someone else's name since she had stolen the card.  She should have been charged with identity fraud as well.

This was never an issue, for the prosecutors, of can we prove it in court?  The proof was all there, she would have been convicted in court -- and faced a real sentence.  So why did the prosecutors make a deal with her?

People are up in arms over Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, among others, buying their children's way into college.  (As disclosed years ago at THIRD, I know Lori.)  How is Caroline stealing over $100,000 not more appalling?  Don't say, "She's a kid."  No, she wasn't..  She was in her late 20s when that happened, she's over thirty now.

She was allowed to enter a guilty please to two charges.  Why was that allowed?  She'd already assaulted a police officer which, grasp this, is a violent crime.  Who called in favors to get Joe Biden's niece a sweetheart deal that let her admit to fewer charges than she should have been charged with and allowed her to serve no time at all after stealing over $100,000.

Theft and corruption is a pattern with the Biden family.  And, yes, it does reflect on Joe and it should.  Roger Clinton reflected on Bill Clinton, Billy Carter reflected on Jimmy Carter.  In what world do the actions of Caroline Biden, her father James Biden (Joe's brother) and Joe's son Hunter Biden not reflect on Joe?

And let's grasp too that Hunter turns fifty in a few months.  Fifty.  And he's currently got a woman suing him for paternity.  How's Joe going to reassure American families when the reality is that Hunter Biden's not providing for the child that's supposed to be his own?  Even staffers on Joe's campaign have told me it's obvious Hunter's the father of that child.

Family values?  Deadbeat Dad who won't step up to the plate and that's family values?  And Hunter's not a 20-year-old gas pump jockey.  By unethical means, he's earned millions.  And he won't pay child support.

Hunter is unethical and he is the poster boy for "as a Biden" -- remember Joe lying about an incident that didn't happen the way he said it did and swearing that it was true, giving his word "as a Biden."  Hunter's actions (and James and Caroline's actions) say a lot more about what happens "as a Biden."  Patrick Martin (WSWS) notes:

The younger Biden has always been the black sheep of the family, even according to various sympathetic accounts, most of them appearing in publications—The New Yorker, the New York Times, the Washington Post—favorable to the Democrats.
The New Yorker piece, at more than 10,000 words by far the longest, published in July, was obviously planted by the Biden campaign for the purpose of venting all the bad news about Hunter Biden as a preemptive measure against anticipated stink bombs from the Trump campaign.
It was prepared through lengthy interviews by reporter Adam Entous with Hunter Biden. And it delivers a lot of bad news about a career devoted apparently to influence-peddling and drug abuse, both on a scale that matches or exceeds that of any dubious relative of any previous president, at least until Donald Trump.
Hunter Biden was hired by MBNA bank in Delaware, fresh out of Yale Law School, and paid a six-figure salary at the age of 26 because his father was a senator from that state and a fervent defender of the bank and credit card industries. MBNA was then the largest US issuer of credit cards.
He then moved to Washington to take a position in the last years of the Clinton administration. Once the Republicans came to power with the George W. Bush administration, in 2001, he became a lobbyist, helping Jesuit Catholic colleges insert earmarks into congressional appropriations bills.
When earmarks became more difficult to obtain, and after losing money in a speculative venture on the eve of the 2007-2008 financial crash, Biden formed a “consulting” group with Christopher Heinz, stepson of Senator John Kerry and an heir to the Heinz fortune, and a Yale friend of Heinz’s, Devon Archer.
Inevitably, after his father’s election as vice president, given a prominent international role in the Obama-Biden administration, Hunter Biden’s consulting firm branched out into global deal-making, focusing on countries where influence-peddling would be most lucrative and actual business credentials least necessary, among others, China and Ukraine.
In China, the younger Biden traveled on Air Force Two in 2013 with his father, who was making an official trip to Beijing. In the course of this, Hunter Biden introduced a Chinese business partner, Jonathan Li, to the vice president. He left China with promises of future investments, although not with the $1.5 billion that Trump now falsely claims. According to Hunter Biden’s attorney, no money has yet flowed from that particular connection.
Another Chinese business prospect gave Hunter Biden a diamond worth either $80,000 (according to his ex-wife’s divorce suit) or $10,000, according to Biden’s response to the suit, but in any case, much beyond the normal range of business gratuities.
But Ukraine is where Hunter Biden has apparently cashed in most extensively, trading on his father’s name and position. In 2013-2014, a right-wing populist movement backed by the CIA and the German government gained the upper hand in an internal power struggle within the Ukraine capitalist class.
The Maidan “revolution” was actually a right-wing coup, spearheaded by outright fascist forces, some of whom marched under Nazi insignias, against the elected president, Viktor Yanukovych, who was aligned with the Russian government of Vladimir Putin.
Ukraine has been a “wild west” for the operations of foreign intelligence services and capitalist oligarchs at least since the so-called Orange Revolution of 2004, the first successful effort by Washington to bring to power a US-backed regime in one of the major countries emerging from the breakup of the Soviet Union.


Joe Biden trots out his dead family members every chance he gets.  He's been married to Jill, for example, for decades.  But he can't stop trying to get sympathy for losing his first wife.  Apparently, he also trots the dead members out constantly becuase the living ones are so damn corrupt.

I believe it was Elizabeth Edwards, in the fall of 2007, who suggested to the press that if Hillary couldn't even handle her family how was she up to the job of president?  At best, Joe has just looked the other way as unethical deals have been made by his family members who used access to him to rake in millions.  At worst?  Joe may have been an active participant.

He's stated he never spoke to Hunter about the Ukraine deal.  Hunter told THE NEW YORKER that they had one conversation.  But let's again note this Tweet about a photo that was unearthed this week.



BREAKING: After Joe Biden claimed that he never discussed his son’s foreign business dealings with him, A photo surfaced, from 2014, showing the former VP and his son golfing with a board member of the Ukrainian company that paid Hunter Biden $50k a month. This. Is. Corruption.

Yesterday's snapshot noted the protest that were just starting to take place in Baghdad (and elsewhere in Iraq).  Last night, Margaret Griffis (ANTIWAR.COM) noted:

Protests across Iraq have left at least 10 dead and 286 wounded. The injured included 40 security personnel. The fatalities occurred in Baghdad and Nasariya. At least 11 people were arrested in Basra. The Iraqi government blamed “groups of riot inciters” for the violence.
At least 1,000 people gathered in Baghdad’s Tahrir Square, where much of the violence took place; the trigger may have been an attempt to enter the Green Zone. This is largest gathering since Prime Minister Adil Abdul-Mahdi took power last year. Security personnel at some point had turned to live ammunition to disperse the crowds. Demonstrations were also reported in Basra, Dhi Qar, Diwaniya, Karbala, Najaf, Nasariya and Wasit. Use of live ammo to clear protesters was also reported in Nasariya, where a fatality occurred.
Among the complaints are lack of  basic services, rampant corruption, and unequal treatment within the Iraqi Army. Many of the protesters are unemployable college graduates. Riots during the summer of 2018 turned deadly as well. Today, however, the recent removal Iraq’s counterterrorism chief, Lt. Gen. Abdul-Wahab al-Saadi from his post was an added motive to demonstrate; many marchers carried his photo with them.

When it comes to protests, I always have to question Margaret's wording.  The headline, for example, "protest turn violent."  Really?  Now Margaret can rightly question me back (that I'm too sympathetic to protesters) but the protests didn't turn violent, the security response was violent.  For me, her voice is always too passive when Iraqi security attacks the Iraqi people.

Astronauts are swapping out ISS batteries like it’s an old pickup truck

 Cache   
The International Space Station is a high-tech laboratory and high-flying living space. It's an incredible structure that has been keeping astronauts safe and helping them carry out scientific objectives for nearly two decades now. But, like any decades-old piece of machinery, the old girl needs a bit of maintenance every now and again, and that's why astronauts spent their Sunday hauling around some supersized batteries. Just like a mechanic dropping a shiny new battery into the guts of a 1998 Dodge Ram, astronauts Christina Koch and Andrew Morgan yanked three aging batteries from the exterior of the space station and installed two brand new ones. The batteries, which store power generated by the space station's array of solar panels, are absolutely huge. As NASA explains, they weigh in at some 400 pounds and are about half as large as a refrigerator. The good news for the astronauts is that the new batteries are much more advanced than the ones being replaced. The more powerful lithium-ion batteries are a big step up from the nick-hydrogen batteries currently installed on the space station. For every two of the old batteries being removed, just one new battery is needed to replace them. Kock and Morgan were so efficient in their work that they even managed to push the battery replacement schedule ahead a bit. Originally, the duo's primary goal was to replace two of the batteries, but because they were moving at such a brisk pace they were able to remove a third old battery, getting a head start on a second spacewalk scheduled for October 11th.
          

NASA’s Curiosity rover paints ancient Mars as a water-rich paradise

 Cache   
NASA's Curiosity rover is currently cruising around an area of Mars known as the Gale Crater. It's a massive impact site that has existed for billions of years, and the version of it we see today hints at a much wetter time on Mars, when water flowed freely into the crater to form rivers and lakes. Researchers are using observations from Curiosity to paint a picture of Mars as a watery world, and there's no shortage of evidence to support it. As NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory highlights, a new paper published in Nature Geoscience uses the layers of sediment that make up the towering structure within the crater, known as Mount Sharp, to estimate when the climate of the Red Planet changed. The Gale Crater is a perfect place for scientists to try to look back in time. On a much wetter Mars, researchers believe water flowed into the crater, building up and then drying up over and over again. Each time it happened, the sediment carried into the crater by flowing water formed a new layer. Winds that carved the peak of Mount Sharp have exposed these layers and now those layers offer clues about the history of the planet's climate. Figuring out when Mars was wet, and for how long, can give scientists an idea of when life may have existed on the planet. If surface conditions were warm enough for liquid water for an extended period of time means that life would have had a chance to take root. "We went to Gale Crater because it preserves this unique record of a changing Mars," Caltech's William Rapin, lead author of the research, said in a statement. "Understanding when and how the planet's climate started evolving is a piece of another puzzle: When and how long was Mars capable of supporting microbial life at the surface?" We're certainly not to a point where we can say that life definitely existed on Mars, but we're getting closer. When that day comes, studies like this one could tell us what the planet was like for those organisms.
          

Buraco negro explodiu na Via Láctea há 3,5 milhões de anos, diz estudo

Buraco negro supermassivo explodiu no meio da Via Láctea há 3,5 milhões de anos (Foto: NASA)

 

Há 3,5 milhões de anos, um buraco negro supermassivo explodiu no meio da Via Láctea — explosão tão grande que o impacto foi sentido a 200 mil anos-luz de distância, na Corrente de Magalhães. A explosão foi desencadeada por um disparo de radiação ionizante no buraco negro Sagittarius A*, que tem a massa cerca de 4 milhões de vezes maior à do Sol. A descoberta foi realizada por cientistas estadunidenses e australianos e será publicada em breve no The Astrophysical Journal.

Chamado de "bengala de Seyfert", o fenômeno emitiu uma onda de radiação tão poderosa que saiu ao espaço profundo em forma de dois "cones de ionização" radioativos 

Usando dados coletados pelo Telescópio Espacial Hubble, os pesquisadores calcularam que a explosão maciça ocorreu há pouco mais de 3 milhões de anos (um evento considerado surpreendentemente recente em termos galácticos). Para se ter uma ideia da escala de tempo, quando ocorreu a explosão do buraco negro, o asteroide que provocou a extinção dos dinossauros já tinha acontecido há 63 milhões de anos, e os ancestrais da humanidade, os australopitecinos, estavam povoando a África.

"Isso mostra que o centro da Via Láctea é um lugar muito mais dinâmico do que havíamos pensado anteriormente. É uma sorte que não estamos morando por lá", disse a professora Lisa Kewley, diretora do centro de astronomia ASTRO 3D. Os pesquisadores estimam que a explosão durou provavelmente 300 mil anos — um período que também é bastante curto em termos galácticos.

 

 

"Esses resultados mudam dramaticamente nossa compreensão da Via Láctea", afirmou a coautora Magda Guglielmo, da Universidade de Sydney. "Sempre pensamos em nossa galáxia como uma galáxia inativa, com um centro não tão brilhante. Esses novos resultados abrem a possibilidade de uma reinterpretação completa de sua evolução e natureza.

Загадки Луны: почему наш естественный спутник "гудит"?

Часто необычные физические явления становятся не только интересной загадкой для учёных и энтузиастов, но и невольно провоцируют появление настолько нелепых мифов, что комментировать их не всегда возникает желание. Так, например, исследования Луны в прошлом веке легли в основу слухов о якобы нераскрытых тайнах естественного земного спутника. Некоторые искренне уверены, что Луна внутри полая. Прямо как в произведениях Николая Носова или в одной из серии "Доктора Кто". Надо сказать, что аргументы у этой своеобразной гипотезы вполне себе реалистичны.

Дело в том, что лунные экспедиции всегда сопровождались проведением целого ряда экспериментов - изучались основные условия на ближайшем к нам небесном теле, в том числе сейсмическая обстановка. Проще говоря, учёные регистрировали динамику лунных недр и поверхности, с помощью приборов фиксируя лунотрясения. И вот какой феномен удалось открыть благодаря работе сейсмометра PSE: когда взлётная кабина одной из экспедиций отстыковалась и врезалась в Луну, датчики показали сильную реверберацию. Этим термином называется явление продолжающихся колебаний после окончания звука. На Земле оно хорошо заметно в концертных залах. 

 
Сейсмограф на Луне (spaceflight.nasa.gov#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/35104&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com)

Вопреки ожиданиям, сейсмические колебания после удара кабины не затихали в течении 50 минут, что вновь сделало актуальным вопрос о наличии пустот под поверхностью Луны. Уже в 1970 году на естественный спутник Земли "уронили" многотонную ступень ракеты "Сатурн-5" и реверберация продолжалась чуть больше четырёх часов. 

С первого взгляда действительно кажется, что наш спутник ведёт себя как шарик с пустым пространством внутри. 

К счастью, в науке не любят поспешных выводов. Благодаря миссии 1972 года загадочному гудению Луны нашли объяснение. Реверберация происходила на глубине не более двух километров из-за того, что приповерхностные породы небесного тела под воздействием экстремальных условий стали чрезвычайно сухими и отчасти даже рассыпчатыми, словно слой гальки. Всему виной перепады температуры, которые не способна сгладить местная разреженная атмосфера, влияние гравитации Земли, остывание небесного тела и сильнейшие удары астероидов миллиарды лет назад. Всё это дробило и измельчало планетарную кору.

Именно рыхлые породы и гудели от соударений с частями ракетной техники землян. Такое же явление можно наблюдать, если в карьер со щебнем бросить гранату - сейсмограф достаточно долго будет регистрировать остаточные колебания.

Несмотря на то, что очередная тайна соседнего мира была раскрыта, отчего-то до сих пор ходят рассказы про реверберацию Луны, которую не могут объяснить и тщательно скрывают от общественности. Ну, фантазия ведь не знает границ :-) Интересующимся научной стороной вопроса я предлагаю найти и прочесть статью П. Кропоткина "Гудящие полости" на Луне, которая вышла ещё в 1970 году в журнале "Знание - сила" (страница 25).

«Космический заправщик» Northrop стартует 9 октября

 Cache   

Запас топлива, который может иметь спутник, по очевидным причинам, ограничен. После его исчерпания маневры по удержанию на рабочей орбите становятся невозможны, и аппарат может перейти в категорию космического мусора.

Northrop Grumman и NASA планируют 9 октября запустить, по их словам, «первый в своем роде» аппарат MEV-1. На околоземную орбиту его выведет российская ракета-носитель «Протон-М». MEV означает Mission Extension Vehicle или «аппарат продления миссии». Этот аппарат способен дозаправить спутник, исчерпавший свое топливо, отбуксировать его на правильную орбиту, после чего заняться спасением следующего спутника.

Уже через три месяца MEV-1 сблизится со спутником Intelsat 901, которому он продлит срок службы на пять лет, пристыковавшись к нему и вернув на прежнюю орбиту. После этого MEV-1 сможет помогать другим спутникам — его ресурс рассчитан на 15 лет. В 2020 году планируется запустить космический буксир-заправщик MEV-2.

Как утверждается, аппараты MEV могут состыковаться с 80% современных геостационарных спутников, даже если те не рассчитаны на обслуживание в полете.

Want to Start a Videoconferencing Program? Here’s How eli.zimm#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/47990&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comerman_9856 Mon, 09/23/2019 - 14:07

In February 2017, I was a digital coach at Pinecrest Academy St. Rose, a middle school in Las Vegas, where I supported teachers and students with tech-based initiatives

A colleague of mine was teaching about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and his U.S. history students wanted to learn more. 

I contacted Clint Hill, who worked as a Secret Service agent and witnessed the shooting in Dallas in 1963, and asked if he could speak to the class. Hill, who had served in Jacqueline Kennedy’s Secret Service detail, agreed to do a live session from San Francisco

We originally planned to connect by phone, but I figured why not try a videoconference? We agreed to use the technology to connect the students for a once-in-a-lifetime history lesson.

In my 10 years as an educator, I had never seen such high-impact lessons before. I decided to run with it and create as many guest speaking events as possible for students.

5 Ways to Expand Learning Beyond Classroom Walls

Videoconferencing, also known as web conferencing, is not new. But at Pinecrest Academy, we’ve developed a unique program that features videoconferencing sessions several times a week, at multiple schools, at minimal cost. 

In some cases, we’ve set up videoconferencing programs that simultaneously connect up to 200 classrooms in five countries

The vast majority of the sessions, though, connect our classrooms with the speakers, who typically conduct the sessions in their home or at their office. 

Teachers contact me all the time to ask how we got started. It requires minimal technology — and schools already have much of the basic infrastructure needed. 

Use these five best practices to get a videoconferencing program started in your district. 

  1. Set goals and an overall vision: Will the videoconferencing run only for one school’s students, or will the school open it up to other schools in the district, local community colleges and universities, or other institutions around the country or world? It’s best to start with high school students because they are more mature, but any group from fifth or sixth grade up will work fine. 

  2. Determine technical requirements: There’s a very low barrier to entry with videoconferencing. Anyone can get started with an internet connection and a computing device that has a webcam and a projector. Most schools already have these pieces in place. If the guest speaker isn’t comfortable with the video tools, it’s possible to send them an audio link from a videoconferencing service, which allows the speaker to connect to the classroom, make a presentation and answer questions with students in an audio-only format. We once had a 94-year-old guest speaker who was a Holocaust survivor and was uncomfortable with the video setup. In that situation, the audio-only connection worked well.

  3. Embrace the flipped classroom: Videoconferencing is a great tool to facilitate a flipped classroom, increasing student engagement. Once a speaker is scheduled, the teacher should think through strategies to ensure students are prepared for a robust conversation. For example: Assign short videos about the topic at hand or the speaker’s life, or have students read about the speaker and prepare questions for the presentation.

  4. Strive for emotional learning experiences: We’ve had a World War II veteran tell our students about fighting in the Battle of the Bulge. We’ve also had a survivor of the 9/11 attacks recount what they witnessed in New York on that day and how they escaped danger. For younger students, we’ve had zoologists talk about various animals and had a NASA scientist discuss space missions. Hearing these stories firsthand creates an experience that students can’t replicate by reading a book or watching a documentary. It’s a way to engage them — and 40 percent of middle and high school students say they don’t feel engaged, according to a survey from the national nonprofit YouthTruth. And with roughly half of middle and high school students saying they don’t feel their studies are relevant, creating an emotional connection to the topic is a way to turn that around.

  5. Find funding for a full-time pro: Videoconferencing works best when there is at least one person — whether it’s someone in the IT department or an educational technology teacher — who’s dedicated to managing it full time. 

That person will plan videoconferencing sessions and manage a website where teachers can make requests, view the schedule and sign up. 

If funding for a full-time professional isn’t in the budget, consider splitting the responsibilities between two or more people. Another option is to apply for grants to seed the program.

Explore the Possibilities of Classroom Videoconferencing

Many colleges have had solid videoconferencing programs for years. K–12 schools have lagged, mainly because many lack the funds to dedicate full-time staff and acquire the needed technology

However, as costs decrease, school districts that lack resources can usually find the money to secure at least a basic setup. In many states, districts can apply for technology grants. 

For example, funding for my position as a digital coach came through a Nevada Ready 21 technology grant, which also supported secure one-to-one technology and digital coach positions throughout our cluster of charter schools in southern Nevada. 

We support teachers with device management and develop new ways to deliver content in the classroom to help create a tech-rich learning environment.

Once administrators try videoconferencing, they’ll appreciate the wide range of speakers they can bring in and the topics they can cover, from history to current events and even complex subjects like math and computer science.

макошь311: NASA: На Землю надвигается астероидный шторм – 16 астероидов за 7 дней!

 Cache   
Express.co.uk#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/55509&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com: Согласно специальному официальному объявлению NASA. опубликованному буквально только что, NASA обнаружило рой из 16-ти астероидов,  сквозь который пройдет Земля в течении текущей недели. 
 
Самый крупный из астероидов этой группы по размерам значительно больше, чем Великая пирамида в Гизе, в Египте.
 
По данным Центра исследований околоземных объектов (CNEOS), 8 октября Землю посетят первые семь астероидов. 
 
Как отмечают в CNEOS, эти астероиды носят наименования:  2019 TU, 2019 TW1, 2019 RK, 2019 TC1, 2019 SB6, 2019 TM и 2019 TS.
 
Эти астероиды начнут прибывать один за другим, начиная с раннего утра понедельника. 
 
Хотя большинство этих астероидов пройдут мимо Земли на безопасном расстоянии, ожидается, что как минимум один из них пройдет он нас критически близко. 
 
Согласно CNEOS, астероид 2019 T1 пролетит мимо планеты на дистанции  0,00378 астрономических единиц или примерно на 351 000 миль, что немного больше, чем расстояние между Землей и Луной
 
Эти астероиды, а именно 2019 TV1, 2019 TZ и 2019 SL7, посетят Землю рано утром 8-го октября (по британскому времени). Имея диаметр от  29 до 38 метров для планеты эти астероиды не опасны, но при попадании одного из них в город они будут убийственны. 
 
Следующие астероиды, астероид  2019 TV1 и астероид 2019 TZ пролетят мимо Земли за миллионы миль, в то время как 2019 SL7 приблизится к Земле с расстояния всего 0,00363 астрономических единиц или около 337 000 миль.
 
Далее,  еще один астероид  пролетит мимо Земли в районе 10 октября. Он известен как астероид SX5 2019. Он самый крупный в обнаруженной группе и имеет диаметр  140 метров, то есть он больше, чем Великая Пирамида.  По оценкам NASA он пройдет мимо Земли на дистанции 0,04533 астрономических единиц или около 4,2 миллиона миль.
 
Наконец в субботу, 12 октября, Землю посетят еще четыре астероида.
 
По сравнению с 2019 SX5, диаметр которого 140 метров,  астероиды 2019 TN1, 2019 SK8, 2019 SV9 и 2019 SE2 значительно меньше. Их диаметры в среднем от 25 до 90 метров.
 
Ожидается, что эти четыре астероида посетят окрестности Земли рано утром в субботу по среднему британскому времени.
 
Последний астероид, который пролетит мимо Земли на этой неделе, называется 2019 TT1.
 
Этот астероид диаметр 38 метров и 13 октября он приблизится к Земле на дистанцию 0,00744 астрономических единиц или около 692 000 миль.
 
К счастью, астероидов хотя и довольно много, все они относительно небольшие и представляют опасность только при прямом попадании в город.
 
Однако, если когда-нибудь на Землю упадет скала размером с астероид (99942) Апофис диаметром в несколько сотен метров – разрушения будут уже планетарного масштаба. В последний раз обитатели  Земли видели этот ужас 66 миллионов лет назад, после чего всего они были уничтожены.

Sehingga Ogos, 57 kes direkodkan berbanding 21 kes sepanjang tahun lepas.


KL: Bilangan kes sumbang mahram yang dituduh di mahkamah tahun ini meningkat berbanding tahun lepas, kata Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Liew Vui Keong.

Beliau berkata sehingga Ogos, 57 kes direkodkan berbanding 21 kes sepanjang tahun lepas.

Menurutnya, 35 kes sumbang mahram tahun ini direkodkan sebagai tiada tindakan lanjut (NFA) berbanding tujuh tahun lepas.

"Bagi kes seksual rogol, bilangan kes yang dituduh di mahkamah setakat Ogos adalah 269 manakala tahun lepas pula mencatatkan 481 kes," katanya dalam jawapan bertulis kepada soalan yang diajukan Kasthuriraani Patto (PH-Batu Kawan) yang dipaparkan di laman web Parlimen.

Dalam pada itu, 183 kes cabul dituduh di mahkamah sepanjang lapan bulan pertama tahun ini berbanding 384 sepanjang 2018.

Bagi gangguan seksual, 54 kes direkodkan sehingga Ogos lalu berbanding 90 kes sepanjang tahun lepas.

Komen Weblog Ibnu Hasyim: 7 Tips dan Kesimpulan.
1.Menjelang cuti sekolah, jenayah melibatkan seks dan kanak-kanak dilaporkan meningkat. Rata-rata mereka ditinggalkan sendirian di rumah atau terdedah kepada pemangsa yang menunggu peluang. 

Kebiasaannya rumah dikunci untuk menghalang penjenayah masuk dari luar, tetapi jenayah ini berlaku ketika rumah terkunci dari dalam bersama penjenayah. Kerisauan ini selari dengan peningkatan kes sumbang mahram yang makin menjadi-jadi mutakhir ini.

2.‘Mahram’ bermaksud pertalian yang diharamkan berkahwin disebabkan halangan nasab atau perkahwinan. Sumbang mahram merupakan perbuatan zina atau hubungan seks yang dilakukan oleh orang yang mempunyai pertalian darah atau keturunan. Menurut Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Negeri (Selangor), 75.5% jenayah melibatkan seks dilakukan oleh orang yang dikenali.
3.Berdasarkan kes-kes yang dilaporkan di media massa atau dibawa ke muka pengadilan, profil pelaku sumbang mahram terdiri daripada mereka yang hidup susah, rendah pendidikan dan lemah tahap keimanan. Pelaku sumbang mahram hidup tidak berkat kerana melakukan pengkhianatan dengan perbuatan terlaknat. Sudahlah hidup melarat, hina pula tertangkap kerana perbuatan yang terkutuk.
4.Mereka bukan sahaja tidak menjaga maruah diri malah menggadai maruah orang yang sepatut dilindunginya. Kesan langsung kepada mangsa ialah kemurungan, rasa dikhianati, diri ternoda, hilang makna diri, dendam dan mangsa cenderung melindungi penjenayah kerana berada dalam dilema untuk melaporkan atau diugut supaya merahsiakannya.
5.Sumbang mahram merupakan penganiayaan seksual yang menjejaskan biologi, kesihatan mental dan masa depan mangsa. Jika hamil anak hasil sumbang mahram tersebut berhadapan dengan risiko menjadi manusia yang tidak normal, mengalami kerencatan otak dan kecacatan anggota badan atau organ dalaman malah terdapat kes yang berkesudahan dengan kematian. 
Jika mereka hidup sempurna, mereka mengalami kekeliruan identiti dan gangguan psikologi sepanjang hidup.
6.Antara punca berleluasanya perlakuan terkutuk ini ialah pelaku di bawah pengaruh dadah, menjadi hamba nafsu, hilang pedoman hidup, mengabaikan undang-undang, kebanjiran sumber pornografi dan tata hubungan yang melampaui  kewajaran. Bahan lucah dan gagal menjaga aurat serta kesempatan yang terbuka mempunyai hubungan langsung dengan maksiat ini. Akhirnya, berlaku zina secara rela atau paksa.
7.Dari ufuk falsafah maqāsid, syariat melaknat perbuatan terkutuk ini tidak lain kecuali kerana untuk memelihara nasab keturunan dan kehormatan manusiawi. Al-Quran melarang manusia agar tidak sekali-kali mendekatinya. 
Tafsiran larangan ‘mendekati’ ini menjadi lebih jelas apabila diteliti menerusi sebuah hadis, Rasulullah SAW menyebutkan peringkat zina ialah...
  • zina ‘ain (mata); melihat bahan pornografi atau aurat terlarang dengan bernafsu, 
  • zina lisān (lidah); suara mendesah dan ghairah, 
  • zina yadin (tangan); menyentuh dan merangsang, 
  • zina qalb (hati); membayangkan dan menginginkan kenikmatan seks seterusnya berlakulah zina.
Menurut Ibn Hajar al-Haitami (seorang fuqaha Mazhab Syafie, ahli Kalam dan Tasawuf dalam kitab Az-Zawājir ‘an Iqtirāfi al-Kabā’ir) mengatakan bahawa zina yang paling keji adalah berzina dengan mahram sendiri. 
Penzina atau pelaku sumbang mahram tidak layak untuk tinggal di muka bumi Allah sebagaimana pencerahan seorang ahli sufi Ibrahim bin Adham apabila ditanya tentang maksiat, beliau memberikan beberapa syarat jika ingin terus melakukan maksiat iaitu: 
“Kalau kau mampu melaksanakan lima syarat ini, kau boleh melakukan dosa iaitu jangan makan rezeki Allah, jangan tinggal di bumi-Nya, carilah tempat yang tersembunyi daripada-Nya, sempatkan diri bertaubat saat malaikat maut mencabut nyawa dan akhir sekali, sedia mampu lari jika diseret ke neraka oleh malaikat Zabaniah.”
Sebaliknya bagi mereka yang ingin bertaubat dari segala maksiat, Rasulullah SAW bersabda yang bermaksud: “Semua anak Adam melakukan kesilapan, dan sebaik-baik pesalah ialah mereka yang bertaubat” (h.r Ibn Majah). 
Taubat mampu membersihkan diri dari dosa kerana Allah Maha Pengampun. Mafhum firman Allah: “Kecuali orang yang bertaubat, memperbaiki diri dan berpegang teguh pada (agama) Allah dan dengan tulus ikhlas menjalankan agama semata-mata kerana Allah. Maka mereka itu bersama orang yang beriman dan kelak Allah akan memberikan pahala yang besar kepada orang yang beriman” (Al-Nisa’: 146).
Selain menjanjikan kebaikan kepada mereka yang ingin pulih dengan bertaubat, Islam juga  mencegah kemungkaran dengan mengekang jalan-jalan menyampai kepadanya. Islam menetapkan hukuman sebat kepada penzina yang belum berkahwin dan rejam kepada yang berkahwin. 
Sumbang mahram boleh didakwa di bawah peruntukan Seksyen 376A dan Seksyen 376B(1) Kanun Keseksaan dengan hukuman penjara dan sebatan.
Hukuman tegas terhadap pesalah sebenarnya menzahirkan ciri rahmatan lil ‘alamin kerana hukuman yang keras dapat mengekang orang tersebut mengulangi dan menimbulkan kegerunan kepada orang lain yang bercita-cita melakukannya. Sudah pasti kedua-dua situasi ini baik untuk pesalah dan masyarakat keseluruhannya.
Begitu juga laporan yang dibentangkan oleh Jabatan Penjara Malaysia yang melihat sendiri perubahan tingkah laku dan tahap pemulihan pesalah menjalani hukuman sebatan di samping mengikuti modul pemulihan akhlak di penjara. Tidak hairanlah pelopor perundangan Islam, Profesor Ahmad Ibrahim menyimpulkan bahawa undang-undang Jenayah Malaysia dianggarkan 65% selari dengan hukuman Islam.
Kesimpulan:
Kesimpulannya, jenayah dan maksiat kronik ini perlu ditangani dengan mengukuhkan kembali institusi keluarga, menjaga sempadan pergaulan, meningkatkan kecaman masyarakat terhadap sumber lucah di media serta memupuk iman dalam kalangan setiap kaum muslimin. 
Masyarakat jahiliah di Mekah yang dilanda krisis moral mampu dipulihkan dengan pemupukan iman yang haq (sebenar), kenapa kita tidak nampak dan yakin kepentingannya demi pembinaan peradaban manusia. Memahami Islam, membina peradaban.
Kembalilah kepada Islam sebagai perlaksanaan dalam seluruh cara hdup manusia, termasuk politik, ekonomi, sosial, dalam diri, keluarga, masyarakat dan negara.
Wallahu 'aklam.

Setiap isteri perlu ada rasa cemburu dan curiga pada suami kerana hanya isteri yang mengenali suaminya.  Sebagai contoh, jika suami suka menonton video lucah, pihak isteri harus sentiasa mengawasi suami dan anak-anak perempuannya.  Jika boleh jangan sesekali membiarkan anak perempuan dan suami tinggal di rumah bersendirian.
  2. Diri anda sendiri sebagai perempuan harus sentiasa menjaga diri sendiri.  Elakkan diri anda dari bersendirian di rumah bersama sama ada adik-beradik lelaki, bapa, pakcik, datuk atau lain-lain lelaki di rumah.  Pastikan anda sentiasa ada ditemani oleh adik-beradik perempuan, kawan perempuan, ibu, nenek dan sebagainya.  
  3. Setiap wanita harus peka dan berwaspada terhadap perubahan tiangkah laku mesra yang ditunjukkan oleh keluarga lelaki.  Anda harus ingat, semua lelaki berpotensi untuk menjadi perogol.
  4. Jika di rumah, jangan sesekali berpakaian menjolok mataatau berkemban di hadapan ahli keluarga lelaki.  Jaga penampilan dan gerak-geri walaupun anda berada di rumah sendiri.  Bagi ibu-ibu yang bekerja, hubungilah anak-anak anda selalu.
  5. Ibu bapa haruslah sentiasa memeriksa ruang peribadi anak-anak.  Jangan terlalu memberi ruang kepada anak-anak sama ada lelaki atau perempuan untuk melakukan apa saja tanpa sebarang pengawasan.   Jangan terlalu mempercayai tindak tanduk luaran anak- anak anda.  Perasaan curiga dan ingin tahu harus anda titik beratkan sebelum perkara yang tidak diingini berlaku.
  6. Awasilah anak lelaki lebih dari anak perempuan.  Jangan sesekali menganggap anak lelaki lebih senang dijaga berbanding anak perempuan.  Kawalan dan didikan terhadap anak lelaki harus di titikberatkan dan di tingkatkan kerana kebanyakan masalah yang terjadi kepada anak perempuan adalah berpunca dari anak lelaki.

Hukum Lesbian, Gay, Biseksual Dan Transgender

ISLAM sememangnya berbeza dengan gaya hidup liar yang diterapkan oleh sistem sekularisme-liberalisme. 

Menurut mereka, perbuatan seks bebas seperti lesbianisme, gay, biseksual dan transgender adalah dibolehkan kerana ia merupakan hak asasi manusia (HAM) dan sebahagian daripada kebebasan individu yang perlu dihormati dan dijaga oleh negara.

Islam sama sekali tidak membenarkan apatah lagi bersetuju dengan selera murahan yang lebih hina daripada binatang itu. Perilaku lesbianisme, gay, biseksual dan transgender hukumnya adalah haram dalam Islam. Bukan sekadar itu, segala perbuatan haram dianggap sebagai perbuatan jahat/jenayah (al-jarimah) dan ia wajib untuk dihukum. (Abdurrahman Al-Maliki, Nizham Al-Uqubat, hal. 8-10).

Lesbianisme dalam kitab-kitab fiqih disebut dengan istilah as-sahaaq atau al-musahaqah. Definisinya adalah hubungan seksual yang berlaku di antara sesama wanita. Tidak ada khilafiyah di kalangan fuqaha bahawa lesbianisme hukumnya adalah haram. 

Keharamannya antara lain berdasarkan kepada sabda Rasulullah SAW, “Lesbianisme adalah (bagaikan) zina di antara wanita” (as-sahaq zina an-nisaa` bainahunna). (HR Thabani, dalam al-Mu’jam al-Kabir, 22/63). (Sa’ud al-Utaibi, Al-Mausu’ah Al-Jina`iyah al-Islamiyah, hal. 452).

Lesbianisme menurut Imam Dzahabi merupakan dosa besar (al-kaba`ir). (Dzahabi, Az-Zawajir ‘an Iqtiraf al-Kaba`ir, 2/235). Hukuman untuk lesbianisme tidak sama dengan hukuman zina, tetapi ia termasuk di bawah hukuman ta’zir, iaitu hukuman yang tidak dijelaskan oleh sesuatu nas yang khusus. Jenis dan kadar hukumannya diserahkan kepada Qadhi (hakim). 

Ta’zir ini boleh dalam pelbagai bentuk seperti hukuman sebat/rotan, penjara, tasyhir dan sebagainya.(Sa’ud al-Utaibi, Al-Mausu’ah Al-Jina`iyah al-Islamiyah, hal. 452; Abdurrahman Al-Maliki, Nizham Al-Uqubat, hal. 9).

Homoseksual dikenali dengan istilah liwath. Imam Ibnu Qudamah mengatakan bahawa telah sepakat (ijma’) seluruh ulama mengenai haramnya homoseksual (ajma’a ahlul ‘ilmi ‘ala tahrim al-liwaath). (Ibnu Qudamah, Al-Mughni, 12/348). Sabda Nabi SAW,”Allah telah mengutuk sesiapa saja yang membuat seperti perbuatan kaum Nabi Luth, Allah telah mengutuk sesiapa saja yang membuat seperti perbuatan kaum Nabi Luth, Allah telah mengutuk siapa saja yang membuat seperti perbuatan kaum Nabi Luth.” (HR Ahmad, no. 3908).
Hukuman bagi homoseks (gay) adalah hukuman mati. Tidak ada sebarang khilafiyah di antara para fuqaha khususnya para sahabat Nabi SAW seperti yang dinyatakan oleh Qadhi Iyadh di dalam kitabnya Al-Syifa`. Sabda Nabi SAW,”Sesiapa saja yang kalian dapati melakukan perbuatan kaum Nabi Luth, maka bunuhlah kedua-duanya (yang meliwat dan yang diliwat).” (HR Al-Khamsah, kecuali an-Nasa`i).
Para sahabat Nabi SAW hanya berbeza pendapat (khilaf) tentang cara perlaksanaan hukuman mati untuk gay. Menurut Ali bin Thalib ra, kaum gay harus dibakar dengan api. Menurut Ibnu Abbas ra, harus dicari terlebih dahulu bangunan tertinggi di sesuatu tempat, lalu dihumban pelaku gay  tersebut dengan kepala menghala ke bawah, dan setelah sampai di tanah dilemparkan pula dengan batu. 

Menurut Umar bin Khattab ra dan Utsman bin Affan ra, gay dihukum mati dengan cara ditimpakan dinding tembok ke atasnya sampai mati. Memang para sahabat Nabi SAW berbeza pendapat tentang cara perlaksanaanya, namun semuanya sepakat bahawa gay wajib dihukum mati.(Abdurrahman Al-Maliki, Nizham Al-Uqubat, hal. 21).
Biseksual pula adalah perbuatan haram yang dilakukan terhadap kedua-dua jenis jantina. Jika dilakukan terhadap berlainan jantina, ia adalah zina. Jika dilakukan dengan sesama jenis, ia tergolong sebagai homoseksual (gay) jika dilakukan di antara sesama laki-laki, manakala jika dilakukan dengan sesama wanita, ia tergolong sebagai tergolong lesbianisme. Kesemuanya adalah perbuatan maksiat dan haram, tidak ada satu pun yang dihalalkan di dalam Islam.
Hukumannya disesuaikan dengan faktanya masing-masing. Jika tergolong sebagai zina, maka hukumannya adalah direjam (dilempar dengan batu) sampai mati, jika pelakunya adalah muhsan (sudah bernikah). Bagi yang belum bernikah, ia disebat sebanyak seratus kali.. Jika tergolong dalam homoseksual (gay), hukumannya mati. Jika tergolong dalam lesbianisme, hukumannya ta’zir.
Transgender adalah perbuatan menyerupai jantina yang lain, sama ada dalam percakapan, berpakaian mahupun perbuatan, termasuklah dalam aktiviti seksual. Islam mengharamkan perbuatan menyerupai jantina yang berlainan jenis sesuai dengan hadis bahawa Nabi SAW mengutuk lelaki yang menyerupai wanita dan mengutuk wanita yang menyerupai lelaki (HR Ahmad, 1/227 & 339).
Hukumannya, jika sekadar melalui percakapan atau berpakaian yang menyerupai jenis yang berlawanan, ia perlu diusir dari daerah atau perkampungan. Nabi SAW telah mengutuk orang-orang pondan (mukhannas) dari kalangan lelaki dan orang-orang tomboy (mutarajjilat) dari kalangan perempuan. 

Nabi SAW berkata,”Usirlah mereka dari rumah-rumah kalian.” (akhrijuuhum min buyutikum). Nabi SAW pernah mengusir fulan dan Umar ra juga pernah mengusir fulan (atas perbuatan tersebut). (HR Bukhari no 5886 dan 6834). (Lihat Imam Syaukani, Nailul Authar, hal. 1306).
Jika transgender melakukan hubungan seksual, maka hukumannya disesuaikan dengan faktanya. Jika hubungan seksual terjadi di antara sesama lelaki, maka dijatuhkan hukuman homoseksual (gay). Jika terjadi di antara sesama wanita, dijatuhkan hukuman lesbianisme. Jika hubungan seksual dilakukan dengan yang berlainan jantina, dijatuhkan hukuman zina.
Dalam Islam, memang ada golongan yang dikenali dengan istilah khunsa, atau hermaphrodit, iaitu seseorang yang mempunyai dua alat kelamin. Mereka memang diakui dan disebut dalam fiqih Islam. Namun, ini sama sekali berbeza dengan transgender, kerana golongan transgender hanya mempunyai satu alat kelamin yang jelas dan sempurna, tetapi mereka berperilaku atau menukar alat kelamin mereka supaya menyerupai jantina yang berlawanan jenis dengannya.
Berdasarkan penjelasan di atas, adalah jelas bahawa lesbianisme, gay, biseksual dan transgender adalah perbuatan yang diharamkan oleh Islam, sekaligus ia merupakan kemaksiatan yang wajib dijatuhkan hukuman yang tegas.
Yang berhak menjatuhkan hukuman adalah Imam (Khalifah) dalam negara Khilafah yang mana ia akan menerapkan dan menjalankan syariah Islam secara kaffah (keseluruhan). Realitinya, Khalifah sekarang sudah tidak ada sejak hancurnya Khilafah di Turki pada tahun 1924. Maka adalah menjadi tugas dan kewajiban bagi kita seluruh umat Islam untuk mengembalikan semula Khilafah di atas muka bumi ini sekali lagi sebagai Khilafah yang mengikuti minhaj an-nubuwwah (jalan kenabian). Khalifah itulah nanti yang akan menjalankan syariah Islam secara kaffah, termasuk menjatuhkan hukuman-hukuman yang tegas untuk manusia-manusia hina yang melakukan perbuatan lesbianisme, gay, biseksual dan transgender. 
Wallahu a’lam.

-EYES ON MARS —

Here’s an Example of the Crazy Lengths NASA Goes to Land Safely on Mars..........

15 years of work for 10 seconds of action.

ERIC BERGER - 10/7/2019, 9:08 AM

  • Over three weeks in April and May of 2019, NASA's Lander Vision System flew 17 flights attached to the front of a helicopter.
  • The vision system is an integral part of a guidance system called Terrain-Relative Navigation on the Mars 2020 rover.
  • The missions took place in the Mojave National Preserve as well as Death Valley.
  • While it is hotter than Mars, the terrain has a similar appearance.
  • The vision system took pictures and processed them as if it were coming into a landing on Mars.
  • The vision system performed well during these tests.

If all goes well, the Mars 2020 mission will launch toward the Red Planet next July. Then, after a six-month cruise to Mars, a lander carrying a 1-ton rover will detach from the spacecraft and attempt to make a soft landing in an ancient lake bed named Jezero Crater.

Most likely, it will all go well despite the enormous challenge of safely sending spacecraft to Mars. Historically, about 50% of missions have failed. But NASA has gotten pretty good at this stuff, and there's a reason for that. The agency works really hard at getting all of the details right.

Probably the most challenging part of the Mars 2020 mission involves putting the rover on the ground. It is true that NASA performed pretty much the same landing profile in August 2012 with the similarly sized Curiosity rover. However, there is one key difference—whereas Curiosity sought a safe landing site in the relatively smooth terrain of Gale Crater, the Mars 2020 mission will land in a more sporty location with boulders and other hazards.

To increase the odds of success, therefore, the Mars 2020 mission will have an added technology called Terrain Relative Navigation, essentially an autopilot. And this autopilot has been meticulously developed. An engineer named Andrew Johnson at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California has spent most of the last 15 years working on the technology that will guide the 2020 spacecraft's flight for just 10 seconds.

"These 10 seconds may make the difference in whether we land safely on Mars or not," said Johnson, who is responsible for the lander's vision system.

How it works

At 4.2km above the surface, as the lander is descending under parachute power, an on-board computer begins to rapidly take pictures of the Martian surface. Each image has a resolution of 6 meters per pixel, and the landing system is looking for features such as craters, cliffs, and large boulders to compare against previously captured orbital imagery. After the on-board computer has made 15 landmark "matches," it switches to a higher-resolution mode to fine-tune the landing positioning. Previously, a lander could estimate where it was on Mars to within about 3km. The new vision system seeks to bring this error down to 40 meters.

There's about a 10-second period in this sequence during which the on-board computer must assess the high-resolution imagery, calculate the expected landing position, compare this location to satellite imagery of the Martian surface, and determine whether to alter the vehicle's course. All of this must be done before the separation of the back shell, after which a rocket-powered diversion of up to 600 meters would no longer be possible.

 On Sept. 28, 2019, engineers and technicians working on the Mars 2020 spacecraft at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, look on as a crane lifts the rocket-powered descent stage away from the rover after a test.

NASA

Making all of this work requires both new hardware, including a "vision compute element," as well as a lander camera. And writing the software and creating algorithms for all of this has taken a long time, but Johnson knows the system must work. There are no do-overs. "This is what will allow us to land in a site of high scientific interest, like Jezero Crater," Johnson said.

Without the landing vision system, the rover would most likely still make it to Mars. There is about an 85% chance of success. But this is nowhere near good enough for a $2 billion mission. With the landing camera and software Johnson has led development of, the probability of success increases to 99%.

Test program

NASA, of course, can't test the landing vision system on Mars, so it has turned to the next best thing—the Mojave National Preserve and Death Valley. Johnson and other engineers developed a test program and, in April and May, participated in a series of drop tests to simulate landing on Mars, where the vision system has observed Mars-like terrain such as Kelso Dunes.

Working with Pursuit Aviation, Johnson would fly in a helicopter up to 5km above the Earth's surface, with the vision system attached to the front of the vehicle to take and process images. The vision system has flown more than 600 simulated Mars landings, and it has performed well in terms of identifying its location, assessing hazards, and finding safe landing sites.

"It's pretty incredible to watch these guys work," said John Tamburro, a pilot for the aviation company that flew the Airbus H125 helicopter used for the tests. "They dedicate their lives to this. It's incredible that Andrew has been on this project for 15 years. They are all in."

Super-sized Space Bubbles in Another Galaxy Are Spewing Cosmic Rays in Our Direction.....

 

10/07/2019 / By Edsel Cook

Tagged Under: cosmiccosmic eventscosmic raysdiscoveriesGalaxiesNASANGC 3079 galaxyouter spacespace researchStars, super bubbles, super-massive black holes

You have probably seen a child huffing and puffing and blowing at a bubble blower toy to fill the air with glistening soap bubbles. Researchers identified a galaxy in the universe that is going through a similar phase in its life — except its space bubbles are shooting cosmic rays in the general direction of Earth.

The NGC 3079 galaxy lies 67 million light-years from the sun. It produced two huge bubbles of gas that span several thousand light-years in diameter.

Both formations gave off tremendous amounts of highly charged particles that streaked across the vast void as cosmic rays. Their particles displayed 100 times more energy than any counterpart on Earth, including the ones created and studied at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland.

A NASA-led international team of researchers from the United States, Canada, France, and Germany made this discovery. They went over imagery sent by the Hubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-ray Observatory — two of the four “Great Observatories” launched by NASA from 1990 to 2003.

They spotted the two cosmic bubbles bobbing near the center of NGC 3079. The researchers released their findings in The Astrophysical Journal. (Related: Sci-fi in real life: Scientists propose building a space station INSIDE an asteroid and using its gravity to mine valuable space rocks.)

A distant galaxy formed two big super bubbles

While researchers have spotted similar bubbles in the past, the vast bulk of the two cosmic formations in NGC 3079 earned them the classification of “super bubbles.”

The bulkier member of the pair sported a diameter of 4,900 light-years. Meanwhile, its partner measured around 73 percent of its size (3,600 light-years).

To give an idea of how big these super bubbles are, the orbit of Neptune around the sun measures a diameter of 5.6 billion miles (nine billion kilometers). Multiply that by one thousand, and you get a light-year, 5.6 trillion miles (nine trillion kilometers.)

Now, note that both NGC 3079 super bubbles have diameters that span thousands of light-years. The bigger super bubble measures more than 27.4 quadrillion miles (50.4 quadrillion kilometers).

These and other super bubbles throughout the universe are made up of stellar gas that originated in stars in their home galaxy. While a star releases gas regularly, it may experience a tremendously strong shock wave or multiple such events. The shock waves hurl its material so far into space that the expelled gas forms a bubble-shaped structure.

The secret origin of NGC 3079’s super bubbles

The NASA researchers might know about the process that formed cosmic bubbles, but they remained mystified regarding the particular event that produced the shock waves responsible for creating NGC 3079’s super bubbles.

One theory involves newly formed stars. A lot of energy goes into the birth of a star. The process produces “stellar winds” similar to solar wind, but arguably much stronger.

These stellar winds may possess the force to cast stellar gas into the far reaches of space. And there are a lot of stars being born.

Another theory attributes super bubbles to the activity of super-massive black holes. Often found in the hearts of galaxies, the titanic space-time distortions devour anything that passes their event horizon.

Whenever a black hole consumes matter, it releases immense amounts of energy. The radiation from the supermassive examples has enough energy to form super bubbles.

Like most galaxies, NGC 3079 hosts a super-massive black hole in its center. And this black hole so happens to sit in between the super bubbles, lending credence to this theory.

Whatever their origin, the super bubbles appear to act as natural particle accelerators of immense power. The interactions within the gas-filled cavity may impart tremendous amounts of energy on cosmic particles. They may be a source of the cosmic rays that make space travel so risky.

WE’RE ABOUT TO FIND LIFE ON MARS BUT THE WORLD IS “NOT PREPARED,” NASA SCIENTIST WARNS..............

 

October 1, 2019

Elias Marat, TMU
Waking Times

 

As we humble earthlings begin to learn more about the universe and potentially stand on the cusp of great discoveries about the planet Mars, we may not be prepared for what’s in store of us, warns the chief scientist of U.S. space agency NASA.

Dr. Jim Green believes that as two rovers from NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) prepare to embark for Mars next summer, humanity could be overwhelmed by the implications of studies to come.

Speaking to the Telegraph, the director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division compared the potential discoveries to Renaissance-era astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus’ theory that postulated that the Earth revolves around the Sun, rather than vice-versa.

The Copernican model, which is credited with revolutionizing science during the 16th century, earned him the condemnation of the Roman Catholic Church due to the model’s impact on the Church’s doctrines relating to astronomy.

“It will start a whole new line of thinking. I don’t think we’re prepared for the results.

I’ve been worried about that because I think we’re close to finding it and making some announcements.”

The ESA’s ExoMars Rover and NASA’s Mars 2020 are set to drill 6.5 feet into the Red Planet’s core to take samples in hopes of finding evidence of life on. The samples will be processed and examined in a mobile laboratory that will look for any traces of organic matter.

The ESA #ExoMars #RosalindFranklin rover is assembled for testing before heading to #Mars in 2020! The bogies we designed + built are shown in a stowed configuration - meaning the legs & wheels on the bogies of the #rover are folded pretty compactly for launch/transit to Mars!

Green said that if scientists find bio-signatures of life in Mars’ crust, a new era of astrobiology could begin.

“What happens next is a whole new set of scientific questions.

Is that life like us? How are we related?

Can life move from planet-to-planet or do we have a spark and just the right environment and that spark generates life – like us or not like us – based on the chemical environment that it is in?”

NASA’s Mars 2020 rover is set to launch next July before making the 140-million-mile trek to Mars and landing on its Jezero Crater in February 2021.

With two high-definition cameras and a detachable helicopter drone, the rover is set to collect an unprecedented batch of visual data and images of the cavernous and cliffy terrain of Mars.

However, the primary mission of the rover is to find signs of life. Habitable environments and biosignatures left in rock are being sought so that samples can be studied back on earth.

The latest research has shown that many planets believed to have always been uninhabitable may have once enjoyed conditions suitable for sustaining life. Earlier this year, NASA’s InSight rover found evidence of a potentially vast global reservoir of water on Mars.

Dr. Green notes that research also suggests the existence of civilizations on other planets. He commented:

 “There is no reason to think that there isn’t civilization elsewhere, because we are finding exoplanets [planets lying beyond the solar system] all over the place.”

 Over the last several days, we’ve highlighted the stunning breakthrough in “quantum supremacy” announced by Google and NASA. Across other articles, we’ve revealed how quantum computing translates highly complex algorithmic computational problems into simple, linear (or geometric) problems in terms of computational complexity. In practical terms, quantum computers are code breakers, and they can break all known classical encryption, including the encryption used in cryptocurrency, military communications, financial transactions and even private encrypted communications.

As the number of qubits (quantum bits) in quantum computers exceeds the number of bits used in classical encryption, it renders that encryption practically pointless. A 256-qubit quantum computer, in other words, can easily break 256-bit encryption. A 512-bit qubit computer can break 512-bit encryption, and so on.

Those of us who are the leading publishers in independent media have long known that government-funded tech advancements are typically allowed to leak to the public only after several years of additional advances have already been achieved. Stated in practical terms, the rule of thumb is that by the time breakthrough technology gets reported, the government is already a decade beyond that.

Thus, when Google’s scientists declare “quantum supremacy” involving a 53-qubit quantum computer, you can confidently know that in their secret labs, they very likely already have quantum computers operating with a far greater number of qubits.

At the time we were assembling those stories, we were not yet aware that D-Wave, a quantum computing company that provides exotic hardware to Google and other research organizations, has announced a 2048-qubit quantum computer.

The system is called the “D-Wave 2000Q” platform, and it features 2048 qubits, effectively allowing it to break military-grade encryption that uses 2048 or fewer encryption bits.

As explained in a D-Wave Systems brochure:

The D-Wave 2000Q system has up to 2048 qubits and 5600 couplers. To reach this scale, it uses 128,000 Josephson junctions, which makes the D-Wave 2000Q QPU by far the most complex superconducting integrated circuit ever built.

Other facts from D-Wave about its superconducting quantum computing platform:

  • The system consumes 25 kW of power, meaning it can be run on less electricity than what is typically wired into a residential home (which is typically 200 amps x 220 v, or 44 kW).
  • The system produces virtually no heat. “The required water cooling is on par with what a kitchen tap can provide,” says the D-Wave brochure.
  • The system provides a platform for truly incredible improvements in computational efficiency involving machine learning, financial modeling, neural networking, modeling proteins in chemistry and — most importantly — “factoring integers.”

“Factoring integers” means breaking encryption

The “factoring integers” line, found in the D-Wave brochure, is what’s causing unprecedented nervousness across cryptocurrency analysts right now, some of whom seem to be pushing the bizarre idea that quantum computers are an elaborate hoax in order to avoid having to admit that quantum computing renders cryptocurrency cryptography algorithms obsolete. (At least as currently structured, although perhaps there is a way around this in the future.)

“Factoring integers” is the key to breaking encryption. In fact, it is the extreme difficulty of factoring very large numbers that makes encryption incredibly difficult to break using classical computing. But as we have explained in this previous article, quantum computing translates exponentially complex mathematical problems into simple, linear (or you could call it “geometric”) math, making the computation ridiculously simple. (In truth, quantum computers are “computing” anything. The universe is doing the computations. The quantum computer is merely an interface that talks to the underlying computational nature of physical reality, which is all based on a hyper-computational matrix that calculates cause-effect solutions for all subatomic particles and atomic elements, across the entire cosmos. Read more below…)

Depending on the number of bits involved, a quantum computer can take a problem that might require literally one billion years to solve on a classical computer and render a short list of likely answers in less than one second. (Again, depending on many variables, this is just a summary of the scale, not a precise claim about the specifications of a particular system.)

Given that D-Wave’s quantum computers cost only a few million dollars — while there are billions of dollars’ worth of crypto floating around that could be spoofed and redirected if you have a system that can easily crack cryptography — it seems to be a matter of economic certainty that, sooner or later, someone will acquire a quantum computing system and use it to steal cryptocurrency wallets by spoofing transactions. To be clear, I’m sure D-Wave likely vets its customers rather carefully, and the company would not knowingly provide its quantum computing tech to an organization that appeared to be motivated by malicious intent. Yet, realistically, we’ve all seen historical examples of advanced technology getting into the hands of twisted, evil people such as those who run the Federal Reserve, for example.

D-Wave quantum computers don’t really “compute” anything; they send mathematical questions into multiple dimensions, then retrieve the most likely answers

So how does quantum computing really work? As we’ve explained in several articles, these systems don’t really carry out “computing” in the classic work sense of the term. There is no “computing” taking place in the D-Wave hardware. The best way to describe this is to imagine quantum computers as computational stargates. They submit mathematical questions into a hyper-dimensional reality (the quantum reality of superposition, etc.), and the universe itself carries out the computation because the very fabric of reality is mathematical at its core. As some brilliant scientists say, the universe IS mathematics, and thus the fabric of reality cannot help but automatically compute solutions in every slice of time, with seemingly infinite computational capability down to the subatomic level.

Put another way, the world of quantum phenomena is constantly trying out all possible combinations and permutations of atomic spin states and subatomic particles, and it naturally and automatically derives the best combination that achieves the lowest energy state (i.e. the least amount of chaos).

The end result is that a short list of the best possible solutions “magically” (although it isn’t magic, it just seems like magic) appears in the spin states of the elements which represent binary registers. Thus, the answers to your computational problems are gifted back to you from the universe, almost as if the universe itself is a God-like computational guru that hands out free answers to any question that you can manage to present in binary. (Technically speaking, this also proves that the universe was created by an intelligent designer who expresses creation through mathematics.)

Programmers can easily break encryption codes using standard C++ commands that interface with the quantum portal

All of these quantum functions, by the way, are controlled by standard computer language code, including C++, Python and MATLAB. The system has its own API, and you can even submit commands to the quantum realm via its “Quantum Machine Instruction” (QMI) commands. As D-Wave explains in its brochure:

The D-Wave 2000Q system provides a standard Internet API (based on RESTful services), with client libraries available for C/C++, Python, and MATLAB. This interface allows users to access the system either as a cloud resource over a network, or integrated into their high-performance computing environments and data centers. Access is also available through D-Wave’s hosted cloud service. Using D-Wave’s development tools and client libraries, developers can create algorithms and applications within their existing environments using industry-standard tools.

While users can submit problems to the system in a number of different ways, ultimately a problem represents a set of values that correspond to the weights of the qubits and the strength of the couplers. The system takes these values along with other user-specified parameters and sends a single quantum machine instruction (QMI) to the QPU. Problem solutions correspond to the optimal configuration of qubits found; that is, the lowest points in the energy landscape. These values are returned to the user program over the network.

In other words, breaking cryptography is as simple as submitting the large integer to the quantum system as a series of bits which are then translated into electron spin states by the quantum hardware. From there, a “go” command is issued, and the universe solves the equation in a way that automatically derives the best combinations of multiple qubit spin states to achieve the lowest overall energy state (i.e. the simplest solution with the least chaos). A short list of the best possible factors of the large integer are returned in a time-sliced representation of the binary registers, which can be read over a regular network like any subroutine request.

From there, a classical computer can then try factoring the large integer with the short list of the best answers from the quantum system, using standard CPUs and code logic. Within a few tries from the short list, the correct factors are easily found. Once you have the factors, you now have the decryption keys to the original encrypted message, so decryption is effortless. In effect, you have used quantum computing to “cheat” the keys out of the system and hand them to you on a silver platter. (Or, in some cases, a holmium platter lined with platinum, or whatever exotic elements are being used in the quantum spin state hardware.)

Any competent programmer who has access to this technology, in other words, can break encryption almost without effort. The programming logic is not complex at all. The difficulty in such systems is in the hardware control systems, including spin state “reads” and “writes,” which are strongly affected by temperature and electromagnetic interference. The exotic hardware is the real breakthrough in all this, not the computational part. (Quantum computers are physics oracles, in a sense. The physics is the challenge, not the computer code.)

Most people cannot grasp quantum computing, but that’s not a reason to pretend it isn’t real

One of the more curious things I’ve found recently is that some writers and publishers who don’t understand quantum computing are trending in the direction of pretending it doesn’t exist. According to some, Google’s 53-qubit announcement was a hoax, which must also mean that, in their view, D-Wave Systems isn’t real and doesn’t sell quantum computers at all.

That is not a rational position. There’s no doubt that D-Wave is a real company with real hardware, and that Google already possesses 2048-qubit quantum computing capabilities. Furthermore, Google and the NSA have every reason to keep this fact secret for as long as possible, so that they can continue to scrape everyone’s “encrypted” emails and financial transactions, all of which can be retroactively decrypted any time the NSA wants to look more closely at your activities.

To me, it has long been obvious that the cosmos itself is inherently computational. Just look at the collapse of probability waves found in the orbital shells of electrons. It should be self-evident that the universe is computing solutions at the subatomic level in every instant, effortlessly and without apparent cost. The very framework of the cosmos is driven by mathematics and rapid computational solutions. Once you realize how much subatomic phenomena is quantized, it becomes blatantly apparent that the universe is digitized and mathematical. The entire construct in which we exist, in other words, is a mathematical simulation, perhaps created by God for the purpose of amusing himself by watching our collective stupidity.

D-Wave Systems, by the way, knows exactly what’s up with all this. Their goal is to make quantum computing available to the masses. They also seem to hint at the hyperdimensional reality of how quantum computing works. From their brochure: (emphasis added)

While the D-Wave quantum computer is the most advanced in the world, the quantum computing revolution has only begun. Our vision is of a future where quantum computers will be accessible and of value to all, solving the world’s most complex computing problems. This will require advances in many dimensions and contributions from experts in diverse domains. It is exciting to see increasing investment worldwide, advances in research and technology, and a growing ecosystem of developers, users, and applications needed to deliver on that vision.

I can tell that the D-Wave people are some very smart folks. Maybe if these systems get at least an order of magnitude less expensive, we could buy one, install it in our mass spec lab, and start throwing computational questions at the universe.

Personally, if I had one of these systems, I would use it to solve protein folding questions for all the obvious reasons. Then I would probably have it start looking for blood and urine biomarkers for cancer. You could make a fortune applying quantum computing to solving horse race betting and handicapping equations, but that would seem silly compared to what the system is really capable of. Another application would be solving atomic decay patterns to derive the best way to synthesize antimatter, which can be used to power faster-than-light drive systems. (Which I cover at OblivionAgenda.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/66696&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com in a series of lectures. The FTL lectures have yet to be posted there, but are coming soon.)

Sadly, the deep state will probably use this technology to surveil humanity and enslave everyone with AI facial recognition and “precrime” predictive accusations that get translated into red flag laws. Once the tech giants profile you psychologically and behaviorally, a quantum computing system can easily compute your likelihood of becoming the next mass shooter. You could be found guilty by “quantum law” even if you’ve never pulled the trigger.

As with all technologies, this one will be abused by governments to control and enslave humanity. It doesn’t mean the technology is at fault but rather the lack of morality and ethics among fallen humans.

BREAKING: NO MORE SECRETS – Google Achieves “Quantum Supremacy” That Will Soon Render All Cryptocurrency Breakable, All Military Secrets Revealed

 

Saturday, September 21, 2019 by: Mike Adams

Preliminary report. More detailed analysis coming in 24 hours at this site. According to a report published at Fortune.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/66700&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com, Google has achieved “quantum supremacy” with a 53-qubit quantum computer. From reading the report, it is obvious that Fortune.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/66700&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com editors, who should be applauded for covering this story, really have little clue about the implications of this revelation. Here’s what this means for cryptocurrency, military secrets and all secrets which are protected by cryptography.

Notably, NASA published the scientific paper at this link, then promptly removed it as soon as the implications of this technology started to become apparent to a few observers. (The link above is now dead. The cover-up begins…) However, the Financial Times reported on the paper before it was removed. Google is now refusing to verify the existence of the paper.

Here’s the upshot of what this “quantum supremacy” means for Google and the world:

  • Google’s new quantum processor took just 200 seconds to complete a computing task that would normally require 10,000 years on a supercomputer.
  • A 53-qubit quantum computer can break any 53-bit cryptography in mere seconds, or in fractions of sections in certain circumstances.
  • Bitcoin’s transactions are currently protected by 256-bit encryption. Once Google scales its quantum computing to 256 qubits, it’s over for Bitcoin (and all 256-bit crypto), since Google (or anyone with the technology) could easily break the encryption protecting all crypto transactions, then redirect all such transactions to its own wallet. See below why Google’s own scientists predict 256-qubit computing will be achieved by 2022.
  • In effect, “quantum supremacy” means the end of cryptographic secrets, which is the very basis for cryptocurrency.
  • In addition, all military-grade encryption will become pointless as Google’s quantum computers expand their qubits into the 512, 1024 or 2048 range, rendering all modern cryptography obsolete. In effect, Google’s computer could “crack” any cryptography in mere seconds.
  • The very basis of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies rests in the difficulty of factoring very large numbers. Classical computing can only compute the correct factoring answers through brute force trial-and-error, requiring massive computing power and time (in some cases, into the trillions of years, depending on the number of encryption bits). Quantum computing, it could be said, solves the factoring problem in 2^n dimensions, where n is the number of bits of encryption. Unlike traditional computing bits that can only hold a value of 0 or 1 (but not both), qubits can simultaneously hold both values, meaning an 8-qubit computer can simultaneously represent all values between 0 and 255 at the same time. A deeper discussion of quantum computing is beyond the scope of this news brief, but its best application is breaking cryptography.
  • The number of qubits in Google’s quantum computers will double at least every year, according to the science paper that has just been published. As Fortune reports, “Further, they predict that quantum computing power will ‘grow at a double exponential rate,’ besting even the exponential rate that defined Moore’s Law, a trend that observed traditional computing power to double roughly every two years.”
  • As a conservative estimate, this means Google will achieve > 100 qubits by 2020, and > 200 qubits by 2021, then > 400 qubits by the year 2022.
  • Once Google’s quantum computers exceed 256 qubits, all cryptocurrency encryption that uses 256-bit encryption will be null and void.
  • By 2024, Google will be able to break nearly all military-grade encryption, rendering military communications fully transparent to Google.
  • Over the last decade, Google has become the most evil corporation in the world, wholly dedicated to the suppression of human knowledge through censorship, demonetization and de-platforming of non-mainstream information sources. Google has blocked nearly all websites offering information on natural health and holistic medicine while blocking all videos and web pages that question the corrupt scientific establishment on topics like vaccines, pesticides and GMOs. Google has proven it is the most corrupt, evil entity in the world, and now it has the technology to break all cryptography and achieve “omniscience” in our modern technological society. Google is a front for Big Pharma and communist China. Google despises America, hates human health and has already demonstrated it is willing to steal elections to install the politicians it wants.
  • With this quantum technology, Google will be able to break all U.S. military encryption and forward all “secret” communications to the communist Chinese. (Yes, Google hates America and wants to see America destroyed while building out a Red China-style system of social control and total enslavement.)
  • Google’s quantum eavesdropping system, which might as well be called, “Setec Astronomy,” will scrape up all the secrets of all legislators, Supreme Court justices, public officials and CEOs. Nothing will be safe from the Google Eye of Sauron. Everyone will be “blackmailable” with Google’s quantum computing power.
  • Google will rapidly come to dominate the world, controlling most of the money, all speech, all politics, most science and technology, most of the news media and all public officials. Google will become the dominant controlling authoritarian force on planet Earth, and all humans will be subservient to its demands. Democracy, truth and freedom will be annihilated.

Interestingly, I publicly predicted this exact scenario over two years ago in a podcast that was banned by YouTube and then re-posted on Brighteon.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/66700&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com a year later. This podcast directly states that the development of quantum computing would render cryptocurrency obsolete:

Beyond Skynet: Google’s 3 pillars of tech: AI, Quantum computing and humanoid robotics

Google has been investing heavily in three key areas of research:

  • Artificial intelligence (machine learning, etc.)
  • Quantum computing
  • Humanoid robotics

When you combine these three, you get something that’s far beyond Skynet. You eventually create an all-seeing AI intelligence that will know all secrets and control all financial transactions. With AI quickly outpacing human intelligence, and with quantum computing rendering all secrets fully exposed to the AI system, it’s only a matter of time before the Google Super Intellect System (or so it might be named) enslaves humanity and decides we are no longer necessary for its very existence. The humanoid robots translate the will of the AI system into the physical world, allowing Google’s AI intellect system to carry out mass genocide of humans, tear town human cities or carry out anything else that requires “muscle” in the physical world. All such robots will, of course, be controlled by the AI intellect.

Google is building a doomsday Skynet system, in other words, and they are getting away with it because nobody in Washington D.C. understands mathematics or science.

A more detailed analysis of this will appear on this site tomorrow. Bottom line? Humanity had better start building mobile EMP weapons and learning how to kill robots, or it’s over for the human race.

In my opinion, we should pull the plug on Google right now. We may already be too late.

Nasal Septum Defects Detected on Postmortem Computed Tomography

 Cache   
imageNasal septum defects may have forensic relevance because they are associated with various mechanisms, including trauma and cocaine abuse. Like all human body tissues, the nasal septum may be affected by maggots' infestation during postmortem decomposition. Postmortem computed tomography (PMCT) can reveal small findings and related details. Three cases of early postmortem period and 2 cases of advanced decomposition, where external examination of the nasal cavities and PMCT revealed nasal septum defect, are presented. In the early postmortem period cases, the lesions' edges appeared smoother on PMCT, whereas in the advanced decomposed cases, the edges were irregular and maggots were infested. Postmortem computed tomography can detect nasal septum defects and may help differentiate the preexisting from the postmortem ones based on their edges' radiological appearance. Such findings may indicate possible chronic cocaine abuse (cocaine nose), trauma, or other nasal pathology. It is important to note that such defects may be altered or caused by advanced decomposition.
          

«Манон» Жюля Массне открывает новый сезон в Израильской опере

«Кавалер Де Грие, напрасно,
Вы мечтаете о прекрасной,
самовластной – в себе не властной –
Сладострастной своей Манон!»

Марина Цветаева

Роман аббата Прево «История кавалера де Грие и Манон Леско» оказал огромное влияние на развитие французской литературы. Точно так же опера Массне – важнейший этап эволюции оперного жанра во Франции. Считают, что «Манон» – это квинтэссенция оперы вообще. В ней есть то, за что любят этот жанр: бурные страсти и прекрасные мелодии. Многие коллизии этой оперы выглядят абсолютно современными, ведь выбор между любовью и деньгами порой встает сегодня не менее остро, чем во времена Прево. В XIX веке появилось несколько опер и балет о судьбе Манон. В 20-м столетии историю, сочиненную аббатом Прево, превратили в кинофильм. Сюжет будоражит деятелей театра и нашего времени. Выдающийся английский хореограф Кеннет Макмиллан поставил балет «Манон» на музыку Массне в лондонском Королевском театре в конце ХХ века.

Всего же на тему романа Прево создали оперы пять композиторов – М. А. Белф (1836), Д. Ф. Э. Обер (1856), Дж. Пуччини (1893), X. В. Хенце («Бульвар Солитюд», 1951) и Ж. Массне (1881). Постановкой последней откроется новый сезон Израильской оперы.

Сам Массне спустя несколько лет после создания «Манон» вернулся к роману Прево, написав одноактную оперу под названием «Портрет Манон» (либретто Жоржа Буайе, 1894). Сюжет же «главной», знаменитой оперной «Манон», заимствованный из повести аббата Прево, рассказывает о трогательном и печальном романе бедного юноши, студента де Грие, который хотел посвятить себя служению церкви, и легкомысленной девицы, погубившей себя. Ее именем названо это произведение, хотя… «Дорогой шевалье, когда нечего есть, о какой любви может идти речь?» (из письма Манон Леско кавалеру де Грие).

Manon photo copyright by Martynas Aleksa

Либреттисты этой оперы – А. Мельяк (1832—1897) и Ф. Жилль (1831—1901). Действие происходит то во дворе провинциальной гостиницы, то на шумной площади в Париже, то в соборе, то в игорном доме, то в скромной комнате де Грие, то на дороге в Гавр, по которой проходили каторжники. Здесь представлены зарисовки городской жизни Франции XVIII века, различные социальные слои общества и человеческие типы. Однако в центре – судьба двух влюбленных. У Массне сохранены основные сюжетные линии романа, но изменен финал, и образ героини приобрел иные черты. Это скорее парижская гризетка, чем простодушная героиня, способная и на самопожертвование, и на измену.

Осознавал ли французский аббат Антуан Франсуа Прево, создавая свою «Историю кавалера де Грие и Манон Леско», что она станет одним из шедевров литературы? И что образ пленительной, грешной, жаждущей роскоши, а в итоге познавшей большую любовь Манон откроет список куртизанок-авантюристок, которых возвысит и оправдает любовь?

Опера Массне была закончена в 1881 году. Первое представление состоялось 19 января 1884 года в Париже, на сцене Opéra Comique. С того дня и до сих пор «Манон» Массне считается одним из лучших образцов французской лирической оперы.

«Манон» (название которое Массне отстаивал и защищал как свое авторское – другие оперы на этот сюжет назывались «Манон Леско») после «Фауста» и «Кармен» – наиболее популярная французская опера, как в самой стране своего рождения, так и за ее пределами. Первой исполнительницей роли Манон была знаменитая сопрано Мария Хейлбронн. Она и сама опера имели огромный успех, но певица скончалась после восьмидесяти представлений. Массне глубоко страдал. Он написал: «Я предпочел скорее снять оперу, чем видеть в роли Манон другую певицу».

Неожиданный перерыв в постановках оперы затянулся. Вскоре после ее снятия с репертуара самим Массне здание театра Opéra Comique сгорело, и «Манон» не возобновлялась здесь еще десять лет. Тем временем это произведение стало необычайно популярным во всем мире, и в Opéra Comique вернулись к ней с энтузиазмом. Только в этом театре опера шла около трех тысяч раз. Она до сих пор составляет основу его репертуара. Музыка оперы показательна для музыкальных вкусов «Прекрасной эпохи» («Belle Époque») 1870-1914 годов во Франции.

Именно благодаря «Манон» Жюль Массне окончательно утвердился как один из ведущих авторов французской оперы, в которую принес новые сюжетные повороты, новые характеры, новые театральные и музыкальные реальности – мир кафешантана, напудренных красоток, мук чувственной любви…

Постановка «Манон» Жюля Массне в Тель-Авиве – результат сотрудничества между Израильской оперой, Оперой Сан-Франциско и Литовским оперным театром. Режиссер и сценограф Винсент Боссар черпал вдохновение в традиционных французских визуальных образах, используя и «крупные» кинематографические планы. Границы времени и места исчезают, и на первый план выходит то, что делает «Манон» универсальной для всех эпох.

Manon photo copyright by Martynas Aleksa

«Жанр французской лирической оперы требует, чтобы певцы обладали и немалыми актерскими способностями, – говорит Боссар. – Мы воссоздали на сцене подлинные чувства, подлинные характеры через вокал, речь и танец. Это очень интимная и очень трогательная опера, а музыка Массне насыщена любовным томлением, страстью, экстазом…»

В роли Манон мы увидим и услышим сопрано из России Екатерину Баканову (исполнившую в Израильской опере партию Донны Анны в «Дон Жуане» в 2018 году) и сопрано из Румынии Кристину Пассарау (выступившую в Израильской опере в роли главной героини Лейлы в «Искателях жемчуга» Бизе в 2016 году). Итальянский тенор Леонардо Кайми (для него появление в Израильской опере будет премьерным) и корейский тенор Хо-Юн Чунг (недавно исполнивший в Израильской опере роль Вертера в одноименной опере того же Массне) на этот раз предстанут в партии шевалье де Грие. Американский баритон Дэвид Адам Мур и израильский баритон Одед Райх выйдут на сцену в роли Леско, кузена Манон. Израильские басы Денис Седов и Владимир Браун исполнят партию отца героя, графа де Грие. В остальных ролях Эйтан Дрори (Гийо), Яир Полищук (Бертини), Юрий Кисин (трактирщик), Яэль Левита и Элинор Цон (Пуссета), Таль Бергман и Шакед Струль (Жавотта), Шай Блох и Анат Чарны (Розетта).

Дирижер – Дан Этингер.
Хор Израильской оперы (хормейстер – Эйтан Шмайсер).
Израильский симфонический оркестр Ришон ле-Циона.
Опера исполняется на французском языке. Титры – на иврите и английском.

Segir 105 Miðborg ekki líkjast sjóði Gamma

 Cache   
Fimm lífeyrissjóðir eiga liðlega 40 prósent hlut í fagfjárfestasjóði sem reisir húsnæði á Kirkjusandi. Þar stendur til að reisa alls 150 íbúðir auk 25 þúsund fermetra atvinnuhúsnæðis. Íslandsbanki og Landsbankinn veita lán fyrir framkvæmdunum með sambankaláni. Hluti íbúðanna er þegar kominn í sölu. Fagfjárfestasjóðurinn sem stendur að baki verkefninu heitir 105 Miðborg og er rekinn af Íslandssjóðum,  dótturfélagi Íslandsbanka. Á vefsíðu Íslandssjóða kemur fram að eigið fé sjóðsins er 4 milljarðar króna og heildarstærð byggingaverkefnisins er 22 milljarðar króna. Þar kemur líka fram að í heild eru hluthafar félagsins 10 íslenskir lífeyrissjóðir, 5 vátryggingafélög og 11 fagfjárfestar. Samkvæmt upplýsingum frá Íslandsjóðum er framkvæmdafjármögnun fyrir fyrri hluta verkefnisins lokið að fullu. Fyrri hlutinn er um helmingur byggingamagns.

Gamma: Novus heldur utan um fasteignafélagið Upphaf sem reisir 277 íbúðir á höfuðborgarsvæðinu. Tilkynnt var í síðustu viku að nánast allt eigið fé sjóðsins, sem nam um 4,4 milljörðum í lok síðasta árs, hefði verið afskrifað. Ástæðurnar sem hafa verið gefnar upp eru að kostnaður við framkvæmdir verkefna á vegum Upphafs hafi verið vanmetinn og raunframvinda verkefna félagsins ofmetin. Jónas Þór Jónasson, sjóðsstjóri hjá Íslandssjóðum, segir að 105 Miðborg sé mjög ólíkur Gamma: Novus. „105 Miðborg var stofnaður utan um eitt vel skilgreint verkefni, Kirkjusand, sem var fjármagnað að fullu áður en hafist var handa. Auk þess hafði verið samið um fastan byggingarkostnað við öflugan stýriverktaka (ÍAV) sem ábyrgist allar framkvæmdir á Kirkjusandi. Þá má nefna að gengi sjóðsins hefur aldrei verið uppfært og gengið hefur ekki áhrif á greiðslur til umsýslu og rekstraraðila. Strangt regluverk er um greiðsluferli innan sjóðsins ásamt tvíhliða eftirliti með framkvæmdum,“ segir í skriflegu svarið Jónasar Þórs. Eftirlitið er í höndum 105 Miðborgar og fjármögnunaraðila. Jónas segir fjármögnun vera í samræmi við áætlanir og vel innan marka þar sem vaxtakostnaður hafi farið lækkandi samhliða lækkun stýrivaxta Seðlabankans. Hann segir félagið hafa verið að fullu fjármagnað á fyrri hluta árs 2018.  Seinni áfangi háður markaðsaðstæðum Spurður hvort félagið hafi séð ástæðu til að endurmeta áætlanir vegna breyttra aðstæðna í efnahagslífinu segir Jónas að félagið sé stöðugt að meta horfur og áform. Ekki sé gert ráð fyrir að hefjast handa við seinni áfanga verkefnisins fyrr en markaðsaðstæður leyfa og samningar um atvinnuhúsnæði eru í höfn. „Lagt var upp með í upphafi að félagið gæti beðið af sér stöðnun eða samdrátt í efnahagslífinu  með því að; skipta byggingaráformum í hluta, fjármagna allt áður en framkvæmdir hófust og halda eiginfjárhlutfalli háu í verkefninu,“ segir i svari Jónasar. Samkvæmt ársreikningi sjóðsins eru stærstu eigendur hans Lífeyrissjóður verzlunarmanna og Lífsverk lífeyrissjóður með 11,25 prósent hlut hvor. Eignarhaldsfélagið Brimgarðar er svo með 10 prósent hlut. Brimgarðar eiga meðal annars hlut í Kviku og Heimavöllum. Ragnar Þór Ingólfsson, formaður VR, hefur gagnrýnt Gamma harðlega eftir að upplýst var um niðurfærslur á eigin fé Gamma: Novus og Gamma: Anglia í síðustu viku. Í samtali við fréttastofu kvaðst hann ekki hafa kynnt sér rekstur 105 Miðborgar.

Το μυστήριο του κβαντικού υπολογιστή

 Cache   
Σπύρος Μανουσέλης


Απ’ ό,τι φαίνεται, η είσοδος στην εποχή της κβαντικής υπολογιστικής επανάστασης έχει ήδη ξεκινήσει και αναμένεται να είναι εξίσου συναρπαστική και ανατρεπτική με εκείνη του περάσματος από τη συμβατική στην ψηφιακή τεχνολογία. Γεγονός που επιβεβαιώνεται και από την πρόσφατη αλλά αμφιλεγόμενη είδηση για τη δημιουργία του πρώτου κβαντικού επεξεργαστή. Ο ανταγωνισμός για την κυριαρχία στην κβαντική τεχνολογία οδηγεί προς τον «θαυμαστό καινούργιο κόσμο» του τεχνολογικού μας μέλλοντος, που αποτελεί ήδη παρόν.

Σύμφωνα με μια περίεργη είδηση που δημοσιεύτηκε πολύ πρόσφατα, στις 20 Σεπτεμβρίου, στην επιστημονική στήλη της εφημερίδας «Financial Times», οι ερευνητές στα εργαστήρια της Google υπό τη διεύθυνση του φυσικού John Martinis διατείνονται ότι κατάφεραν να υλοποιήσουν το άπιαστο -μέχρι χθες- τεχνολογικό όνειρο της «κβαντικής υπεροχής»: την κατασκευή δηλαδή ενός υπολογιστή που θα διαθέτει έναν κβαντικό επεξεργαστή, η αρχιτεκτονική και η λειτουργία του οποίου βασίζονται στις αρχές της κβαντικής φυσικής. Μια επιστημονική είδηση που, αν επιβεβαιωθεί, θα καθιστούσε αναπόφευκτα τους σημερινούς υπερ-υπολογιστές τεχνολογικά και λειτουργικά ξεπερασμένους.

Η είδηση αυτή είναι πολύ περίεργη επειδή η σχετική ανακοίνωση των ερευνητών της Google, ενώ έγινε στην έγκυρη ιστοσελίδα της NASA («Nasa Technical Report Server»), μετά από μερικές ώρες αποσύρθηκε.

Χωρίς καμία περαιτέρω εξήγηση και χωρίς καμία μέχρι στιγμής επίσημη επιβεβαίωση ή διάψευση της είδησης από την Google. Πρόκειται, άραγε, για αθέμιτο και κακόγουστο μάρκετινγκ της συγκεκριμένης εταιρείας ή για την εξαγγελία της επόμενης τεχνολογικής επανάστασης στο πεδίο των υπολογιστών;

Μήπως έχουμε εισέλθει ήδη στην κβαντική εποχή της υπολογιστικής τεχνολογίας;



Αν επαληθευτεί η είδηση ότι οι ερευνητές του εργαστηρίου της Google κατάφεραν όντως να δημιουργήσουν τον πρώτο λειτουργικό κβαντικό επεξεργαστή, τότε πρόκειται αναμφίβολα για μια μεγάλη τεχνολογική επανάσταση. Κι αυτό γιατί ένας κβαντικός υπολογιστής θα μπορούσε, θεωρητικά, να επεξεργάζεται και να εκτελεί με απίστευτη ταχύτητα υπολογισμούς που κανένας από τους υπάρχοντες σήμερα ψηφιακούς υπολογιστές -όσο ισχυρός κι αν είναι- δεν θα μπορούσε να εκτελέσει σε αντίστοιχο χρόνο.

Η επίτευξη αυτού του στόχου θα ήταν μια τεχνοεπιστημονική καινοτομία ανάλογη με αυτήν της εισαγωγής των πρώτων ψηφιακών υπολογιστών στη ζωή των ανθρώπων. Κάποιοι, μάλιστα, ισχυρίζονται ότι οι κβαντικοί υπολογιστές θα επιφέρουν πολύ δραματικότερες αλλαγές στη ζωή όλων μας.

Πάντως, σύμφωνα με το αμφιλεγόμενο δημοσίευμα, ένα άρθρο που αναρτήθηκε και σχεδόν αμέσως αποσύρθηκε από την ιστοσελίδα της NASA, ο συγκεκριμένος κβαντικός υπολογιστής κατάφερε να επιλύσει ένα δυσκολότατο τεστ εκτελώντας έναν τόσο περίπλοκο υπολογισμό που η επίλυσή του από τον πιο ισχυρό ψηφιακό υπολογιστή που διαθέτουμε σήμερα θα απαιτούσε να εργάζεται αδιάκοπα επί 10 χιλιάδες χρόνια, ενώ για τον κβαντικό επεξεργαστή της Google αρκούν 3 λεπτά και 20 δευτερόλεπτα!

Πρόκειται για μια επιστημονική είδηση που, αν επιβεβαιωθεί, θα καθιστούσε, εκ των πραγμάτων, τεχνολογικά και λειτουργικά ξεπερασμένους όλους τους σημερινούς υπερ-υπολογιστές.

Εν αναμονή της επίσημης επιβεβαίωσης ή της διάψευσης αυτής της είδησης, έχει νομίζουμε κάποιο ενδιαφέρον να εξετάσουμε τις ασύλληπτες δυνατότητες που ανοίγει η τεχνολογική υλοποίηση του άπιαστου μέχρι σήμερα ονείρου της κβαντικής υπολογιστικής.

Από τα μπιτ στα κιούμπιτ



Για να συνειδητοποιήσει κανείς τις τεράστιες υπολογιστικές δυνατότητες ενός κβαντικού επεξεργαστή και τι ακριβώς είναι η λεγόμενη «κβαντική υπεροχή» (quantum supremacy) σε σύγκριση με τη σημερινή ψηφιακή τεχνολογία, αρκεί να αναλογιστεί ότι ο ισχυρότερος ψηφιακός υπολογιστής στον κόσμο, ο αμερικανικός Summit (που σημαίνει «Κορυφή»), έχει υπολογιστική ισχύ 148,6 petaflops, μπορεί δηλαδή να κάνει «μόνο» 148,6 τετράκις εκατομμύρια υπολογισμούς το δευτερόλεπτο και είναι απελπιστικά αργός σε σχέση με έναν κβαντικό υπολογιστή.

«Αυτή η δραματική επιτάχυνση, σε σχέση με όλους τους γνωστούς κλασικούς αλγόριθμους, αποτελεί την πειραματική υλοποίηση της κβαντικής υπεροχής στην υπολογιστική εργασία», όπως επισημαίνουν στο σχετικό άρθρο τους οι ερευνητές της Google και προσθέτουν πως «απ’ όσο γνωρίζουμε, αυτό το πείραμα αποτελεί τον πρώτο υπολογισμό που ολοκληρώθηκε επιτυχώς αποκλειστικά από έναν κβαντικό επεξεργαστή».

Το νέο υπολογιστικό πρότυπο κβαντικού επεξεργαστή βαφτίστηκε από τούς δημιουργούς του «Sycamore» και μολονότι φαίνεται πως διαθέτει εντυπωσιακή υπολογιστική ισχύ, οι ανταγωνιστές της Google αμφισβητούν τις πρακτικές εφαρμογές του.

«Είναι μόνο ένα εργαστηριακό πείραμα χωρίς πρακτικές εφαρμογές», δήλωσε ο Dario Gil, διευθυντής ερευνών της ανταγωνιστικής εταιρείας IBM, όταν διέρρευσε η είδηση για την επιτυχία της Google.

Σε έναν συμβατικό ψηφιακό υπολογιστή (που είναι κατά κανόνα ηλεκτρονικός), η στοιχειώδης μονάδα πληροφορίας είναι το bit, ενώ σε έναν κβαντικό υπολογιστή το qubit. Η βασική αρχή της κβαντικής υπολογιστικής είναι το πειραματικά επιβεβαιωμένο γεγονός ότι οι κβαντομηχανικές ιδιότητες της ύλης μπορούν να χρησιμοποιηθούν για την αναπαράσταση και τη δόμηση δεδομένων. Συνεπώς, ο απώτερος στόχος της είναι η επινόηση και η κατασκευή μηχανισμών που, στηριζόμενοι στην κβαντομηχανική, μπορούν να επεξεργάζονται αυτά τα δεδομένα.

Πράγματι, ως κβαντικός υπολογιστής ορίζεται κάθε μη ψηφιακό υπολογιστικό σύστημα που εκμεταλλεύεται τις χαρακτηριστικές ιδιότητες της κβαντομηχανικής, όπως π.χ. την αρχή της υπέρθεσης και της διεμπλοκής, ώστε να φέρει εις πέρας επιτυχώς την επεξεργασία πληροφοριών μέσω της εκτέλεσης σύνθετων υπολογισμών.

Το μυστικό της τεράστιας υπολογιστικής δύναμης των κβαντικών επεξεργαστών πρέπει να αναζητηθεί στο αινιγματικό φαινόμενο της κβαντικής διεμπλοκής ή κβαντικού εναγκαλισμού (quantum entanglement): όταν δύο σωματίδια ή ομάδες σωματιδίων αλληλεπιδρούν μεταξύ τους μέσω της σύζευξης των κυματοσυναρτήσεών τους, με αποτέλεσμα να παραμένουν σε κατάσταση «διεμπλοκής», ανεξάρτητα από την απόσταση που τα χωρίζει. Έτσι, όταν συμβαίνει κάτι στο ένα σωματίδιο, το άλλο το αντιλαμβάνεται αμέσως και αντιδρά ακαριαία, ακόμη κι αν βρίσκεται στο άλλο άκρο του Σύμπαντος.

Όμως, ποια είναι η βασική διαφορά ενός ψηφιακού από έναν κβαντικό επεξεργαστή; Όλοι οι ψηφιακοί υπολογιστές αναπαριστούν, αποθηκεύουν και επεξεργάζονται τις πληροφορίες αποκλειστικά υπό τη μορφή μπιτ (bit), δυαδικών στοιχείων «0» και «1».

Αν λοιπόν σε κάθε συμβατικό ψηφιακό υπολογιστή η στοιχειώδης μονάδα πληροφορίας είναι το bit, σε έναν κβαντικό υπολογιστή είναι το κβαντικό μπιτ ή κιούμπιτ (qubit), το οποίο μπορεί να παίρνει όλες τις δυνατές τιμές που υπάρχουν ανάμεσα στο 0 και το 1. Ενώ ένα μπιτ μπορεί να λαμβάνει μόνο δύο τιμές, να βρίσκεται δηλαδή σε μία μόνο από τις δύο καταστάσεις «1» ή «0», το κβαντικό μπιτ μπορεί χάρη στην ιδιότητα της «κβαντικής διεμπλοκής» να βρίσκεται σε πολλές ισοπίθανες καταστάσεις και άρα να λαμβάνει πολυάριθμες τιμές.

Συνεπώς, ένα qubit μπορεί να αναπαραστήσει τόσο τις δύο τιμές «1» και «0» όσο και οποιαδήποτε υπέρθεση αυτών των δύο: 2 qubits μπορούν να αναπαραστήσουν οποιαδήποτε υπέρθεση 4 δυνατών καταστάσεων, 3 qubits οποιαδήποτε υπέρθεση 8 καταστάσεων. Γενικά, ένας κβαντικός υπολογιστής μπορεί να επεξεργάζεται την κατάσταση υπέρθεσης πολλών δυνατών καταστάσεων, ενώ ένας κλασικός ψηφιακός υπολογιστής μπορεί, κάθε στιγμή, να βρίσκεται σε μία μόνο από αυτές τις καταστάσεις!

Κάτι που, σύμφωνα με την κβαντική φυσική ισχύει και για όλα τα στοιχειώδη σωματίδια (π.χ. τα ηλεκτρόνια των ατόμων). Όπως αναφέραμε, η θεμελιακή παραδοχή της κβαντικής υπολογιστικής είναι ότι αυτές οι κβαντικές ιδιότητες της ύλης μπορούν να προσομοιωθούν από τον κατάλληλο επεξεργαστή για την αναπαράσταση και τη δόμηση όλων των πληροφοριών και των νέων δεδομένων. Και επομένως, το μόνο που χρειάζεται να γίνει είναι να κατασκευαστούν τα κατάλληλα κβαντικά τσιπάκια, η λειτουργία των οποίων θα είναι η επεξεργασία των πληροφοριών που θα βασίζεται στις επιβεβαιωμένες αρχές της κβαντομηχανικής.

Όμως, η υλοποίηση του ονείρου της κατασκευής κβαντικών υπολογιστών προσκρούει σε πολλά δυσεπίλυτα θεωρητικά και πρακτικά προβλήματα. Όπως π.χ. το γεγονός ότι όλα τα κβαντικά τσιπάκια, δηλαδή οι μικροεπεξεργαστές των κιούμπιτ, για να δουλεύουν καλά πρέπει να διατηρούνται σε θερμοκρασίες κοντά στο απόλυτο μηδέν (-273o C).

Ένα επιπλέον εμπόδιο είναι ότι ο κβαντικός επεξεργαστής πρέπει να είναι εντελώς απομονωμένος από τον περιβάλλοντα χώρο, διαφορετικά οι υπολογισμοί που έχει προγραμματιστεί να εκτελεί επηρεάζονται από τον «θόρυβο» και μπορεί να είναι εντελώς λανθασμένοι. Πρόκειται για ακραίες καταστάσεις και γι’ αυτόν τον λόγο όλοι οι κβαντικοί επεξεργαστές που έχουν κατασκευαστεί μέχρι σήμερα από την Google και την IBM είναι πολύ μικρών διαστάσεων.

Τέλος, ακόμη ένα εμπόδιο για την εκμετάλλευση της τεράστιας υπολογιστικής ισχύος των κβαντικών υπολογιστών είναι ότι αυτοί θα πρέπει να εργάζονται με διαφορετικούς και πολύ πιο περίπλοκους αλγόριθμους από αυτούς των ψηφιακών υπολογιστών.

Όμως στη δυνατότητα ταχύτατης επεξεργασίας και ολοκλήρωσης τέτοιων αλγόριθμων από τους μελλοντικούς κβαντικούς υπολογιστές πρέπει να αποδοθεί το πολύ μεγάλο ενδιαφέρον των πιο ισχυρών εταιρειών και των κυβερνήσεων γι’ αυτή την άμεση τεχνολογική εξέλιξη, στην οποία και επενδύουν τεράστια ποσά.

Ο λυσσαλέος ανταγωνισμός για την κυριαρχία των qubits



Παρ’ όλες αυτές τις εγγενείς δυσκολίες, υπάρχει ήδη σφοδρότατος ανταγωνισμός τόσο μεταξύ των διεθνών εταιρειών στον χώρο της επικοινωνίας και της πληροφορικής όσο και μεταξύ των κρατών για το ποιος θα κυριαρχήσει σε αυτήν τη νέα τεχνολογία του αύριο. Και τα κίνητρά τους είναι πραγματικά πολλά: από το απόλυτα ελεγχόμενο κβαντικό διαδίκτυο και τις ασφαλείς κβαντικές επικοινωνίες του μέλλοντος μέχρι την κβαντική κρυπτογράφηση, που όλα δείχνουν πως θα είναι τεχνικά αδύνατο να παραβιαστεί από τους χάκερ και τις μυστικές υπηρεσίες των άλλων χωρών.

Πράγματι, το μελλοντικό κβαντικό διαδίκτυο σχεδιάζεται ήδη ώστε να περιλαμβάνει λίγους ελεγχόμενους «κόμβους» από πιο απλούς κβαντικούς επεξεργαστές, οι οποίοι θα συνδέονται με όλους τους μεμονωμένους ψηφιακούς υπολογιστές, δημιουργώντας έτσι ολότελα νέες διαδικτυακές υπηρεσίες και πολύ πιο ασφαλή επικοινωνία.

Ο αντίλογος βέβαια σε αυτό το νέο τεχνολογικό θαύμα είναι ότι υπάρχει σοβαρότατος κίνδυνος το κβαντικό διαδίκτυο να γίνει μια αποπνικτική, ιεραρχική και απόλυτα ελεγχόμενη διαδικτυακή Βαβέλ.

Όσο για την απαραβίαστη «κβαντική κρυπτογραφία», το άπιαστο όνειρο όλων των μυστικών υπηρεσιών, και αυτή στηρίζεται στην ανάπτυξη της κβαντικής υπολογιστικής. Πάντως, για την ώρα, δεν υπάρχουν κβαντικοί υπολογιστές με υπολογιστική ισχύ χιλιάδων κιούμπιτ, ώστε να είναι ικανοί για τέτοιες αποκρυπτογραφήσεις. Και η υποθετική κβαντική υπεροχή του κβαντικού υπολογιστή της Google, του «Sycamore», είναι πολύ μικρή για να γεννά τέτοιες ανησυχίες.

Προφανώς, όμως, όλα αυτά τα φουτουριστικά τεχνολογικά σενάρια αποτελούν ένα επαρκέστατο κίνητρο για τις σημερινές εταιρείες και τις τράπεζες όσο και για τις μυστικές υπηρεσίες, οι οποίες έχουν κάθε λόγο να ενδιαφέρονται για την ταχύτατη ανάπτυξη των κβαντικών υπολογιστών, επειδή τους ενδιαφέρουν οι ασύλληπτες εφαρμογές τους.

Kuching Waterfront Music Festival 2019: Jazz with No Borders

 Cache   
Haze or no haze, the show must go on. 

Heck, even the famous white cat monument in Padung was wearing a mask while we were in Kuching. But the Kuching Waterfront Music Festival did go on as scheduled last September 27-28, 2019. From the waterfront, it was moved indoors to the MBKS Community Hall, just around five or so minutes by shuttle bus or taxi from the original venue. 

The haze from Indonesia cleared alright but as it was a day away from performance night, it was logistically impossible to move it back outdoors. Still, the festival enthralled audiences with a curious mix of performers from the region and as far away as Australia. 

Our Pinoy contingent of two (me and my buddy, Ferdz Decena of ironwulf.net#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/86905&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com) got into Kuching on the eve of the second conference. This 3rd iteration of the jazz festival marks the second time it is featuring a Filipino artist. Sitti Navarro was an interesting addition to the lineup, bringing a taste of bossa nova to the proceedings. Sitti thought we were Kuching residents (fact: there were not a lot of Pinoys here, nor is it a frequent destination for Filipinos, tourists or expatriate workers). She was buoyed by our presence, telling us "Ganito pala pag nasa ibang bansa ka,"  to express finding elation in bumping into fellow Pinoys abroad.  
Rhythm of the Sitti
She got onstage on the second night, nursing a cold (I think I must have gotten my share of sniffs from her during the press conference LOL) but you wouldn't know it.  I first met her many years ago in an event I was involved in and she has grown and matured into a really engaging artist.  Performing barefoot (she dumped her high heels early in her set), she used every inch of the stage launching into Filipino ditties (including a memorable rendition of Yeng Constantino's "Ikaw" which we found out was popular in Kuching, some bossa nova standards, then capping her set with a Malaysian song re-arranged to a bossa beat.  Was she a hit with the crowd?  You bet. 
Ning Baizura
Anyway, I would like to share some highlights from the two nights of performances. Well, we missed some of the performances as we were in Kuching for some other matters and on the second night, had to pack for our trip to Mulu but here goes...

Ning Baizura is a Malaysian powerhouse, having been a household word for the past 27 years or so as a singer, actress, and later as a record producer.  The way she sang and connected to the audience tells me she've had been performing for a long time and yet she looks youthful.  I take note of one particular song she sang because it's akin to the Tagalog phrase, "Ikaw at ako" (You and I).  Another highlight of her extended set was her duet with Indonesian veteran, Harvey Malaiholo.  My personal favorite though was her tender rendition of Maxwell's "Whatever, Whenever, Wherever."
Saxx in the City
Sax trio Saxx in the City from Indonesia bookended the first night.  And what a way to cap the first evening, uptempo and high-energy all throughout their set.  They dished out some original music reminiscent of the Average White Band's 1977 epic "Pick Up the Pieces".   My personal pick was their foot-stomping rendering of their Earth, Wind & Fire suite.  I was singing and bobbing my head all throughout, a reminder of the power of a horn section to move the crowd, whether young or old.
Q Sound
Q Sound gave the proceedings a hefty dose of R&B and hip-hop.   Their 3-piece horn section (4 if it includes lead singer American Marques Young) provided an aural backdrop of high-energy music that got the crowd moving as Marques admonished "side-to-side".  Their jazz-hip-hop version of Michael Jackson's "Rock With You" was a big hit, getting kids who weren't even born yet when the song hit the charts in the early '80s into the groove.
Nisa Addina
Nisa Addina is more than a Malaysian phenom, she's actually a homegrown talent.   The Kuching native is Berklee-educated, returning to the Kuching stage to wow the locals and foreigners alike with her incredible talent.  What Clapton did to the guitar (make it weep), she keeps doing with her violin, reminding the audience that violin music is not just about classical performances that only get played in big halls, accompanied by an orchestra.
Z Yan
Z Yan, Dawn Wong and the Shanghai Jazz Club, Ushera and Xanaduduo comprise four acts with female lead singers, each one bringing a different taste of jazz.   Z Yan gave a sultry performance, dressed up in red.   Dawn Wong and her band performed sassy, playful numbers, Chinese brand of jazz singing and playing.  Xanaduduo reminded me of smoky clubs and thoaty divas accompanied only by piano, singing their hearts out.  And finally, Ushera took jazz to the Latin vibe direction -- moving, muscular and danceable.
Ushera provided that Latin vibe
Dawn Wong and the Shanghai Jazz Club
Xanaduduo
We regret missing the second part of the Sunday evening performances, Harvey Malaiholo, Dave Brewer and the DooDaddies, plus the grand finale as we it was getting late and we had to pack up for our next day trip to Mulu.   Still, the performances we did caught gave us a wonderful glimpse of the jazz festival's power to draw even non-jazz audiences and give them a melange of musical tweaks within the genre.  If anything, the performances show that jazz, indeed, knows no border, and two decades into the new millennium, a musical genre that traces its origin to African-American musicians in New Orleans, has no color.

Special thanks to Place Borneo Sdn Bhd and the Sarawak Tourism Board for the giving us heprivilege of experiencing this jazz spectacle in person.

Moreno culpa a Correa de golpe de Estado

 Cache   
El presidente ecuatoriano, Lenín Moreno, decidió trasladar la sede del Gobierno a la ciudad costera de Guayaquil, después de que este lunes tuvieran lugar fuertes protestas cerca del palacio de Carondelet, y culpó a su antecesor, Rafael Correa, de un intento de «golpe de Estado». En un mensaje a la nación por radio y televisión, Moreno, acompañado del vicepresidente Otto Sonnenholzner, y del ministro de Defensa, Oswaldo Jarrín, anunció que el traslado de las operaciones del Gobierno a esta ciudad se deben al asedio de los manifestantes en Quito. «Me he trasladado a Guayaquil y he trasladado la sede del Gobierno a esta querida ciudad de acuerdo a las atribuciones constitucionales que me competen», añadió el gobernante al asegurar que lo que ha sucedido en el país en los últimos días «no es una manifestación de protesta frente a una decisión del Gobierno». También acompañado de varios jefes militares, el mandatario culpó a Correa (2007-2017) de estar detrás de los supuestos intentos de desestabilizar a su Gobierno, y le acusó de estar detrás de lo que denominó «intento de golpe de Estado». «Hay -dijo- una intención política organizada para desestabilizar el Gobierno y romper el orden constituido y romper el orden democrático». Para Moreno, quienes han generado actos de violencia extrema son «individuos externos pagados y organizados» y dijo que no es coincidencia que varios líderes del Gobierno de Correa hayan ido a Venezuela hace algunos días para preparar el supuesto plan de desestabilización. «Son los corruptos que han sentido los pasos de la justicia cercándolos para que respondan, son ellos quienes están detrás de este intento de golpe de Estado y están usando e instrumentalizando a algunos sectores indígenas, aprovechando su movilización», afirmó. Según el mandatario, sus opositores correístas «están financiando las agresiones y los saqueos» con el dinero que «se robaron» durante la anterior administración, por lo que rechazó con contundencia «este atentado contra la democracia». Moreno agradeció a las Fuerzas Armadas y a la Policía y remarcó que su Gobierno va a «seguir protegiendo los derechos y la tranquilidad ciudadanas». «Evitaremos siempre cualquier derramamiento de sangre», añadió el mandatario e insistió en que «la democracia y la paz saldrán nuevamente victoriosas» de esta prueba. Pero sobre la medidas que han desencadenado la violenta protesta, repitió que no dará «marcha atrás» y que la eliminación de los subsidios o ayudas estatales para abaratar el coste de los combustibles, es una «decisión histórica» que mantendrá en firme para que «nuestra economía esté sana y la dolarización protegida». Además, señaló que la medida de ajuste, que ha sido rechazada por varios grupos sociales, especialmente sindicatos e indígenas, afecta a grupos económicos poderosos, como los contrabandistas de gasolinas. «Les aseguro que por duro que parezca hemos hecho lo correcto con la patria», apostilló Moreno tras llamar al diálogo a los sectores sociales, «una puerta que -según dijo- en el Gobierno jamás se cerró».

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.

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

Tribute
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

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)

6 Permintaan Absurd Penumpang Ojek Online Ini Bikin Elus Dada

Liputan6.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/100228&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com, Jakarta Saat ini kehadiran ojek online atau yang lebih akrab di telinga dengan sebutan ojol ini tentunya sangat membantu aktivitas sehari-hari. Sejak beberapa tahun belakangan jenis tansportasi berbasis online ini mulai diminati banyak orang.  

Salah satu hal yang diperhatikan oleh ojek online ialah penilaian bintang pada aplikasinya. Bukan hanya sekadar pengembang aplikasi, pemberian bintang pada ojol adalah rapor bagi para pengemudinya. Wajar saja, jika pengemudi ojol berusaha memberikan pelayanan yang terbaik ke pelanggannya.

Tak ayal bagi para ojek online, pelanggan adalah raja. Sayangnya, tak sedikit penumpang ojek online yang  jadi kelewatan dengan meminta yang aneh-aneh.  Enggak cuma sekedar meminta dijemput atau mengantar makanan, para penumpang ini punya permintaan yang bikin kamu ngelus dada sendiri deh!

Penasaran seperti apa?  Berikut Liputan6.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/100228&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com rangkum dari berbagai sumber, 6 permintaan absurd penumpang ojek online yang bikin ngelus dada, Selasa (8/10/2019)

5 Pemain Timnas Indonesia U-22 Absen di Turnamen di China?

 Cache   

Jakarta - Timnas Indonesia U-22 terancam tak bisa memainkan lima pemain di turnamen CFA Team China Chong Qing Three Gorges Bank Cup International Football Tournament 2019 di China. Malah, dua dari mereka, telah dipastikan absen.

Kedua pemain yang tidak akan membela Timnas Indonesia U-22 pada turnamen tersebut ialah Septian Bagaskara dan Todd Rivaldo Ferre. Adapun, kondisi Bagas Adi Nugroho, Rifad Marasabessy, dan Osvaldo Haay masih diragukan.

"Kondisi Septian dan Todd memang tidak memungkinkan untuk bermain di turnamen di China," ujar Nova Arianto, asisten pelatih Timnas Indonesia U-22.

"Jadi, kami tidak membawa mereka," imbuhnya.

Pelatih Timnas Indonesia U-22, Indra Sjafri, berencana membawa 26 pemain ke turnamen di China. Namun, jumlahnya dapat berkurang dengan banyaknya pemain yang dibekap cedera.

"Bagas Adi, Rifad, dan Osvaldo Haay, masih dalam tahap pantauan," imbuh Nova.

Sementara itu, Timnas Indonesia U-22 telah terbang ke China pada Senin (27/10/2019), namun, PSSI belum merilis daftar pemain.

Timnas Indonesia U-22 akan bertemu dengan China, Arab Saudi, dan Yordania, pada CFA Team China Chong Qing Three Gorges Bank Cup International Football Tournament 2019, 9-13 Oktober 2019.

Pada partai pertama, Tim Garuda Muda bakal menghadapi Arab Saudi, Rabu (9/10/2019). Dua hari berselang, Timnas Indonesia U-22 telah ditunggu tuan rumah China.

Timnas Indonesia U-22 akan memungkasi turnamen pemanasan SEA Games 2019 tersebut dengan melawan Yordania pada 13 Oktober 2019.


          

Bra Temuan Manohara Saat Bebersih Pantai Gegerkan Jagat Maya

 Cache   

Liputan6.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/100237&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com, Jakarta - Peduli pada kebersihan pantai jadi salah satu movement yang belakangan cukup sering digalakkan. Satu di antara sekian banyak yang ikut turun dalam aksi nyata mempertahankan cantik wilayah pesisir adalah model Manohara.

Lewat deretan foto dan video yang diunggah ke akun Instagram-nya, @manodelia, beberapa waktu lalu, dara 27 tahun ini tampak, sebagaimana dituliskan di sana, spontan membersihkan pantai ketika pelesiran ke salah satu wilayah Kepulauan Seribu, Jakarta.

Salah satu sampah tak biasa yang ditemukan Mano, begitu ia akrab disapa, di pantai adalah pakaian dalam perempuan berupa bra. "Jackpot!!" tulisnya melengkapi video boomerang tengah memegang dalaman berwarna merah muda tersebut.

Manohara temukan sampah bra ketika bebersih pantai. (dok. Instagram @manodelia/https://www.instagram.com/p/#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/100237&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comB3UMvHIDPU0/)

Temuan tak biasa ini kemudian membuat warganet geger. Mereka bingung bagaimana bisa sampai ada sampah bra di pantai. "Nggak paham lagi kok bisa ada begituan (bra). orang sekarang buang sampahnya kreatif ya," celoteh salah satu pengguna Instagram.

Di samping bra, tampak pula beberapa jenis sampah lain yang juga dikumpulkan Manohara, di antaranya sandal, ban, dan, yang paling banyak, botol plastik sekali pakai. Karenanya, di kesempatan itu, Mano juga mengimbau untuk mengurangi pemakaian produk plastik sekali pakai.

Kesadaran Bebersih Pantai

Menteri Kelautan dan Perikanan Susi Pudjiastuti memunguti sampah di Pantai Timur Ancol, Jakarta, Minggu (18/8/2019). Gerakan Menghadap Laut 2.0 akan diikuti oleh puluhan komunitas pecinta laut dan influencer serentak di lebih dari 100 titik lokasi di seluruh Indonesia. (Liputan6.com/#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/100237&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comHerman Zakharia)

Menggunungnya sampah di panti menggerakkan hati tak semata Manohara. Ya, gerakan bebersih ini bahkan sempat diadakan secara masif di berbagai pesisir di Tanah Air lewat Hadap Laut 2.0 pada 18 Agustus 2019.

Menteri Perikanan dan Kelautan Susi Pudjiastuti sempat terlibat dalam gerakan ini dengan ikut bersih-bersih di Pantai Ancol, Jakarta.

Lebih dari hanya satu momen besar, bebersih pantai sudah cukup sering dlakukan secara pribadi oleh sekian banyak orang. Salah satu yang pernah membagikannya di Instagram fotografer perjalanan Marrysa Tunjung Sari.

Tak hanya sekali, perempuan yang akrab disapa Sasha ini sudah menjadikan bebersih pantai sebagai rutinitas hampir setiap kali pelesiran ke pesisir. Sampah-sampah tersebut biasanya akan dibawa ke daratan, jauh dari laut.

Jelang Tampil di China, Timnas Indonesia U-22 Matangkan Skema Menyerang

 Cache   

Jakarta - Timnas Indonesia U-22 terus mematangkan persiapan menjelang duel di CFA Team China Chongqing Three Gorges Bank Cup International Football 2019. Tim asuhan Indra Sjafri mulai mengasah kemampuan menyerang.

Turnamen tersebut menjadi ajang pemanasan buat Timnas Indonesia U-22 jelang tampil di SEA Games 2019. Egy Maulana dkk. akan mendapatkan ujian berat karena menghadapi tim sekelas China, Arab Saudi, dan Yordania.

"Dua hari yang lalu kami fokus membenahi pertahanan. Sekarang, itu sudah berjalan dengan baik. Kami akan mencoba fokus kepada penyerangan," kata Indra Sjafri seperti dikutip situs resmi PSSI, Senin (7/10/2019).

Menurut Indra Sjafri, untuk membuat tim yang tangguh harus bisa meliputi 3 aspek penting. Faktor tersebut adalah serangan, pertahanan, dan transisi.

"Membuat Timnas itu tak semudah yang dipikirkan. Jadi, ada prosesnya sampai puncak. Saya harus terus memperbaiki apa yang ada dalam tim ini," tegas Indra Sjafri.

Turnamen CFA Team China Chongqing Three Gorges Bank Cup International Football 2019 juga dijadikan Indra Sjafri untuk menemukan komposisi pemain Timnas Indonesia U-22 di SEA Games. Rencananya, sebanyak 26 nama akan dibawa untuk mengikuti turnamen yang berlangsung pada 9-13 Oktober 2019 itu.

Terkendala Visa

Timnas Indonesia U-22 sejatinya berangkat ke China pada Senin (7/10/2019). Namun, permasalahan visa membuat pemberangkatan di tunda.

Situasi itu sempat membuat Indra Sjafri kecewa. Sampai saat ini belum diketahui kapan skuat Garuda akan bertolak ke Negeri Tirai Bambu.

Timnas Indonesia U-22 dipersiapkan untuk berlaga di SEA Games 2019 Filipina 24 November-11 Desember mendatang. Tim Garuda Muda ditargetkan meraih medali emas.  Dua tahun silam, Timnas Indonesia U-22 besutan Luis Milla hanya bisa meraih medali perunggu.

Apa itu rokok elektrik? Rokok Elektrik adalah rokok yang khusus dibuat untuk para perokok yang ingin BERHENTI setidaknya MENGURANGI merokok tradisional dengan cara yang NYAMAN dan terbukti 99.9% AMAN untuk tubuh kita dan RAMAH LINGKUNGAN.
ALASAN MENGGUNAKAN ROKOK ELEKTRIK "HEALTH"
1. AMAN, bebas dari -+4000 jenis bahan kimia (seperti dalam rokok tradisional) yang menimbulkan Kanker paru,otak,rahim, ginjal, mulut, gigi hitam & rusak, mulut bau, kerusakan pembuluh darah (penyebab gagal jantung & impotensi). Ingat:Menthol BUKAN PENYEBAB Impotensi, melainkan zat2 beracun dalam rokoklah yang menyebabkan kerusakan pembuluh2 darah dan syaraf2 di tubuh.

2. 100% bebas dari Api yang membakar & Asap yang beracun(CO, Pb, Hydrogen Cyanide, Methane, dll) & menyengat. Ingat, perokok pasif(orang yang menghirup asap rokok tradisional Anda)beresiko 3 x lipat terkena kanker daripada Anda sendiri.

3. Anda BEBAS merokok DIMANA SAJA karena HEALTH hanya memproduksi asap dan api buatan yang 100% AMAN & TIDAK BERBAU : tidak beresiko kebakaran & bau menyengat pada baju, ruangan & perabotan. Dalam berbisnispun, Anda akan terlihat jauh lebih sopan & lebih 'berpendidikan' karena HEALTH bersifat: Ramah Lingkungan dan berteknologi tinggi (Nano teknologi).

4. Dengan HEALTH, Anda membuktikan bahwa Anda menyayangi Diri Anda, Keluarga Anda dan peduli orang lain (3 hal ini bentuk ibadah bukan?)

5. HEALTH otomatis menjadi asuransi tanpa premi bagi Anda dan keluarga Anda yang akan menghindari Anda (& keluarga Anda sebagai perokok pasif) dari pengeluaran yang sangat besar bahkan tak ada habis2nya yang tidak seharusnya terjadi akibat Anda terus merokok tradisional yang akhirnya menimbulkan KANKER di tubuh Anda.

Syamsuir, warga Bendungan Hilir, Jakarta Pusat, kini tak bisa bicara lagi. Pasalnya, ia pernah terkena kanker pita suara. Sebabnya? Tak lain karena dia perokok berat selama 30 tahun. Satu hari tiga bungkus rokok ia sulut.
yamsuir bekerja sebagai tukang reparasi jam. Penghasilannya tak seberapa. Jadi, untuk kebiasaan merokok ia nyaris menghabiskan sebagian besar penghasilannya. Akibatnya? Di lehernya kini terdapat lubang besar bekas operasi yang pernah dijalaninya. Dan, yang lebih ia sesali: suaranya pun menghilang.
Syamsuir adalah satu dari jutaan korban akibat merokok. Di Indonesia, 70 persen dari 60 juta perokok adalah mereka yang berasal dari golongan ekonomi menengah ke bawah. Artinya, sudah miskin, masih terjerat kebiasaan merokok yang menguras isi kantong.
Belum lagi sekitar 65,6 juta perempuan dan 43 juta anak- anak di Indonesia yang terpapar asap rokok. Mereka ini adalah perokok pasif dan rentan pula terkena bermacam penyakit akibat rokok, yakni bronkitis, paru- paru, kanker usus, kanker hati, stroke, dan berbagai penyakit lain.
Setiap tahun sekitar 200.000 kematian di Indonesia diakibatkan kebiasaan merokok. Sebanyak 25.000 korban adalah perokok pasif.
WHO melaporkan tembakau membunuh 100 juta jiwa pada abad ke-20 dan diperkirakan akan membunuh 1 miliar orang pada abad ini. Di Indonesia sendiri, tembakau membunuh 427.948 ji wa pada tahun 2001 atau sebanyak 1.172 jiwa setiap harinya (Soewarta Kosen, 2004).
Hasil Survei Sosial Ekonomi Nasional 2003-2005 membuktikan, konsumsi rumah tangga miskin untuk tembakau menduduki rating kedua (12,43 persen), setelah konsumsi padi-padian (19,30 persen). Jadi, untuk keperluan tembakau keluarga miskin mengalokasikan 15 kali lipat dari keperluan daging (0,85 persen), 5 kali lipat dari keperluan susu dan telur (2,34 persen), 8 kali lipat dari keperluan pendidikan (1,47 persen), dan 6 kali lipat dari keperluan kesehatan (1,99 persen).
Peneliti senior Lembaga Demografi Fakultas Ekonomi Universitas Indonesia, Sri Moertiningsih Adioetomo, pernah menyatakan, dari sebuah studi ditemukan bahwa biaya rawat inap pengidap penyakit akibat merokok mencapai Rp 2,9 triliun per tahun.
Indonesia memang hebat dalam hal konsumsi rokok. Bayangkan, kini Indonesia menduduki posisi ketiga di dunia setelah China dan India untuk urusan konsumsi rokok. Pemerintah Indonesia dinilai tidak memiliki kemauan politik untuk menangani persoalan rokok secara serius.
Bayangkan saja Road Map Industri Rokok justru menargetkan penambahan konsumsi rokok. Pada tahun 2005 konsumsi rokok di Indonesia mencapai 220 miliar batang rokok. Pada Road Map Industri Rokok tahun 2015 ditargetkan konsumsi rokok meningkat menjadi 260 miliar batang.
Target 10 tahun meningkat 40 miliar batang. Sebanyak 40 miliar batang rokok dikonsumsi 10 juta perokok. Artinya, dalam 10 tahun direkrut 10 juta perokok baru. Bisa dikatakan dalam satu tahun ditarget 1 juta perokok baru atau 249 perokok baru per hari, kata Setyo Budiantoro dari Tobacco Control Support Center Ikatan Ahli Kesehatan Masyarakat Indonesia (TCSC-IAKMI).


Kandungan Ecig
Kadar Nikotin
E-Cartridge vs Rokok
0.1ml E-Liquid (Cairan E-Cig) ≈ 1 Batang Rokok
Secara normal, sebatang rokok memerlukan 12-15 hisapan untuk
menghabiskannya, sedangkan 0.1 ml E-Liquid memerlukan sekitar 12-15
hisap untuk menyelesaikan rokok nya juga, jadi 0.1 ml E-Liquid sama
dengan sebatang rokok.
Kami mendefinisikan kadar nikotin dalam E-Liquid sebagai berikut:
- untuk kadar nikotin Extra High, memiliki kadar 24mg nikotin dlm E-Liquid,
- untuk kadar nikotin High, memiliki kadar 16mg nikotin dalam E-Liquid,
- untuk kadar nikotin Medium, memiliki kadar 11mg nikotin dalam E-Liquid,
- untuk kadar nikotin Low, memiliki kadar 6mg nikotin dalam E-Liquid,
- untuk kadar Non Nikotin, tidak terdapat nikotin dalam E-Liquid.
Nikotin per hisap tiap batang Rokok:
Nikotin yang terdapat pada sebatang rokok bervariasi mulai dari 0,6 mg
sampai 2,4 mg. Sebatang rokok memiliki antara 10-15 hisapan untuk
menghabiskannya secara normal, jadi nikotin per hisap pada sebatang
rokok adalah sebagai berikut:
- untuk rokok dengan kadar nikotin 1,0 mg: 0,6 / 15 = 0,040 mg/hisap,
- untuk rokok dengan kadar nikotin 1,8 mg: 2,4 / 15 = 0,160 mg/hisap.
Nikotin per hisap tiap 0,1 ml E-Liquid:
Berdasarkan kadar nikotin pada rokok, kami memiliki persamaan kadar
nikotin dalam E-Liquid tiap 0.1 ml dengan kadar nikotin yang berbeda
sebagai berikut:
- untuk kadar nikotin Extra High: 2,4 / 15 = 1,260 mg/hisap,
- untuk kadar nikotin High: 1,6 / 15 = 0,107 mg/hisap,
- untuk kadar nikotin Medium: 1.1 / 15 : 0.073 mg/hisap
- untuk kadar nikotin Low: 0,6 / 15 = 0,040 mg/hisap,
- untuk kadar Non Nikotin: 0 mg/hisap.
Kapasitas
E-Liquid dalam E-Cartridge berbedia pada setiap model E-Cig, jadi tiap E-Cartridge memiliki pesamaan yang berbeda dengan jumlah rokok.


Cara Perawatan dan Tips Penggunaan Ecig
Untuk mencegah kerusakan pada unit & demi kepuasan pengguna, terutama pada atomizer(atomizer yg tdk terawat/'dikasari' bs merusak aroma rasa), pada pemakaian perdana(pertama kalinya), SANGAT DIANJURKAN untuk meneteskan cairan refill 3-4 tetes pada ujung pin atomizer yg berwarna silver(2-3 tetes pada tipe HG93, namun hanya 1-2 tetes pada tipe Elite), tunggu beberapa saat sebelum memasang cartridge baru; lalu hisap pelan2 TANPA TERDENGAR SUARA tapi konstan & cukup dalam, & untuk menghindari kemungkinan kelebihan cairan terhisap, jika perlu tutup lubang udara kecil dng jari(terlihat di perbatasan koneksi antara cartridge&baterai)HANYA SEKEJAP SAJA(1 detik saja) pada waktu mengisap. Lakukan prosedur ini hingga asap terlihat(& akan terlihat cukup banyak), dan tetap teteskan cairan ke ujung pin atomizer (tetesan dikurangi)&ke tube cartridge setelah asap/aroma rasa jauh berkurang.

Jika tidak memiliki cairan refill, SELALU pastikan gunakan unit HANYA dengan cartridge yg masih basah/terisi penuh & sebaiknya TUNGGU 1 menit sebelum unit digunakan stlh cartridge baru dipasang AGAR ujung atomizer meresap cairan dlm tube cartridge. BERHATI2lah agar atomizer tidak terlalu digunakan secara berlebihan, baiknya gunakan secara lembut & HINDARI suhu kerja/panas yg tinggi, tp suam2 kuku/hangat : lakukan hisapan pendek (1.5-2 detik tepat setelah lampu menyala)dan berikan jeda 5 detik/hisapan.

SANGAT DISARANKAN selalu ready cairan refill kemanapun Anda & jaga suhu atomizer + berikan jeda/hisapan agar unit atomizer awet & aroma tetap terjaga dengan MAXIMAL/sempurna.

Penanganan unit yg bermasalah: Jika LED menyala tp atomizer tdk hangat,artinya: baterai rusak/atomizer yg rusak. [PERHATIAN: unit JANGAN terus dipakai jk cartridge sdh kering(indikator:asap makin brkurang/rasa hambar),krn bs merusak atomizer yg tdk terbasahi] Coba pin atomizer ditetes langsung dng cairan refil(2-3tetes), tunggu 5-8detik,lalu coba hisap(PELAN tapi konstan,& mhn dicatat, demi keawetan unit, baiknya hisapan TIDAK > 3detik &beri jeda 5-10dtk/hisapan). Jika msh,tlg unit diretur ke kami unt pemeriksaan teknis(dng instrumen khusus) &akan kami ganti dlm 1x24jam.

Gejala Atomizer terasa lbh panas
Atomizer lbh panas krn :
1. Terlalu sering hisapan panjang tanpa jeda(harus kasih jeda minimal 10 detik antar tiap hisapan agar pin atomizer tdk cepat berkerut krn overheated).
2.Cairan dlm cartd mau hbs, jd atomizer tdk mendpt "coolant" dr cairan refill. COBA hisap dng arah cerutu menghadap ke atas(sudut 30 -45derajat),agar sisa 'tumpahan' cairan dlm casing atomizer bs tertangkap pin atomizer) & SEGERA CEK cartd jk asap mulai tipis, mgkn cartd kering di permukaan atas busanya, teteskan lg hingga permukaan atas cartdg terlihat basah.

Jika asap mau banyak, dalam pemakaian rokel, tipe apapun itu, HINDARI menghisap dengan cepat, tapi hisap dengan pelan(jk bs,tanpa suara)TAPI KONSTAN, nah dijamin asap lbh banyak,tapi JANGAN LUPA: beri JEDA minimal 10dtk/hisapan! Ingat, ini alat elektronik sensitif,&butuh proses melewati bnyk komponen&ruang proses. Baterai yg lemah pasti berakibat asap yg sedikit pula.







Info Seputar Ecig
1. Food and Drug Administration (USA) /Administrasi Makanan dan Obat USA
Penelitian FDA telah diperiksa pada bulan Juli 2009 oleh perusahaan konsultan ilmiah eksponen, Inc, dalam sebuah laporan yang ditugaskan oleh produsen salah satu rokok elektronik diuji oleh FDA. Beberapa kritik di laporan eksponen adalah standar miskin dokumen dan analisis. Daftar eksponen studi sebelumnya yang telah terdeteksi di tingkat TSNA disetujui FDA-produk terapi pengganti nikotin yang sebanding dengan FDA terdeteksi dalam penelitian mereka, dan objek ke FDA tidak membuat perbandingan untuk produk tersebut dalam analisis mereka rokok elektronik. Akhirnya tinjauan menyimpulkan bahwa penelitian ini FDA tidak mendukung klaim potensi efek kesehatan yang merugikan dari penggunaan rokok elektronik.(Artinya FDA tidak bisa menyimpulkan secara logical medic bahwa rokok elektronik berbahaya bagi kesehatan).
2. Di Denmark, Denmark Medicines Agency mengklasifikasikan rokok elektronik yang berisi nikotin sebagai produk obat-obatan.
3. Penggunaan elektronik rokok belum dilarang. di Bandar Udara Kopenhagen, tapi setidaknya satu maskapai penerbangan (Scandinavian Airlines) telah memutuskan untuk melarang penggunaan dlm penerbangan onboard.
4. Di Belanda, penggunaan dan penjualan rokok elektronik diperbolehkan, namun iklan adalah dilarang undang-undang Uni Eropa yang tertunda.
5. Di Inggris, penggunaan dan penjualan rokok elektronik saat ini tidak dibatasi, meskipun telah mengusulkan MHRA membawa semua produk kecuali nikotin tembakau dalam rezim perizinan obat-obatan.
6. Kesehatan Selandia Baru Ltd studi:

Adanya jumlah jejak TSNAs dalam uap rokok elektronik sebelumnya didokumentasikan dalam analisis 2008 Oktober dilakukan oleh Selandia Baru Kesehatan Ltd dan didanai oleh produsen rokok Ruyan elektronik. Namun, tidak seperti penelitian FDA, penelitian ini dilakukan analisis kuantitatif rinci dan menyimpulkan bahwa penyebab kanker dan toxicants hadir hanya di bawah tingkat yang membahayakan. Kesimpulan akhir laporan keselamatan adalah: "Berdasarkan informasi produsen, komposisi cairan kartrid tidak berbahaya bagi kesehatan, jika digunakan sebagaimana dimaksud."
7. Health Issues /Masalah kesehatan
efek kesehatan dari penggunaan rokok elektronik saat ini belum diketahui. Beberapa perusahaan rokok elektronik mengklaim bahwa bahan berbahaya yang dihasilkan oleh pembakaran tembakau dalam rokok tradisional tidak hadir dalam cairan atomized rokok elektronik. Beberapa juga telah memasarkan rokok elektronik sebagai cara untuk mengurangi kecanduan nikotin, meskipun organisasi kesehatan internasional telah menyatakan mereka tidak dapat dipasarkan sebagai alat penghentian. Dalam sebuah survei online terbaru dari bulan November 2009 di antara 303 perokok, ditemukan bahwa e-rokok substitusi untuk rokok tembakau menghasilkan manfaat kesehatan dirasakan (batuk kurang, kemampuan yang lebih tinggi untuk melakukan latihan, dan rasa yang lebih baik dari rasa dan bau)
8. Rokok elektronik pertama kali dikembangkan dengan paten terdaftar, pada bulan April 2003 oleh SBT Co Ltd, sebuah perusahaan berbasis di Beijing, yang sekarang dikendalikan oleh Golden Dragon Group Ltd Pada tahun 2004, Ruyan mengambil alih proyek untuk mengembangkan lebih lanjut muncul teknologi. Ruyan resmi diserap SBT Co Ltd dan nama mereka diubah menjadi SBT Ruyan Teknologi & Development Co, Ltd Sudah bulan Mei 2004, Ruyan menjual rokok elektronik pertama di Cina. Dalam pertama 3 tahun produksi, SBT Ruyan melihat terus meningkat dalam penjualan, dari $ 13 juta HKD ($ 1,7 juta USD) pada tahun 2004 menjadi $ 136 million HKD ($ 17 juta USD) pada tahun 2005, dan $ 286 million HKD ($ 37 juta USD) pada tahun 2006 .

Pada bulan April 2006, rokok elektronik dibawa ke Eropa, dan secara resmi meluncurkan di "Ruyan" Promosi Luar Negeri Konferensi di Austria. Setelah diperkenalkan, produk ini telah disesuaikan dengan pasar Eropa dan dipasarkan di Inggris sebagai "Electro homo ". Pada tahun 2007, Reuters mengunjungi SBT Ruyan di Beijing, yang menarik perhatian media untuk teknologi. Menurut pengguna Matt Salmon, presiden baru terbentuk Rokok Elektronik Association, jumlah e-rokok diperkirakan 300.000 pada bulan Oktober 2009, berdasarkan hasil survei. Menurutnya, Salmon ditambahkan, angka yang sebenarnya lebih dari itu.

Sekedar share pendapat dari hasil nyoba beberapa tipe rokel dan baca-baca dari internet. Mungkin bisa berguna bagi yg baru pertama mau 'hijrah' ke e-cigar. Semua yang saya tulis dibawah ini adalah murni pendapat pribadi, jadi kalo ada kesalahan, mohon dimaapken Maklum, pengalaman individu tiap orang kan beda-beda.


Info-Info Penting
1. Jangan berharap untuk menemukan rasa yang benar-benar sama persis dengan rokok analog favorit anda sekarang, apalagi yg taste-nya 'Indonesia' banget seperti 234, Sampoerna, dan semacamnya, yang bisa diharapkan hanyalah taste yang mirip bukan sama persis.

2. Rata-rata asap yang dihasilkan oleh rokok analog masih lebih banyak (untuk tarikan/draw inhale yg sama) dibanding e-cigar low end yang beredar di pasaran. Jadi jangan kaget kalau diantara para 'noob' sering ada pertanyaan 'Kok asapnya nggak sebanyak rokok biasa ya?' Menggunakan e-cigar adalah proses 'learning curve', lama kelamaan kita akan nemu sendiri kok gimana cara menggunakan yg baik.

3. Sensasi 'merokok' dengan e-cigar yang dirasakan biasanya tergantung banyaknya vapor (uap/asap) dan 'throat hit' (rasa di tenggorokan) yang dihasilkan oleh unit e-cigar dan cartridge/liquid. Karena asap yang dihasilkan sebenarnya adalah 'uap' maka seharusnya untuk 'sensasi yang sama' pada e-cigar dibutuhkan asap yang jauh lebih banyak karena asap rokok analog walaupun sedikit namun lebih 'bold' atau pekat.

4. Banyaknya asap yang dihasilkan e-cigar sebagian besar tergantung oleh unit-nya. Secara teknis, batere dgn voltage tinggi dan 'low resistance' (LR) atomizer (disingkat 'atty') akan menghasilkan panas yg cukup tinggi untuk membuat asap yang lebih banyak. Namun rata-rata e-cigar yang beredar disini spec listrik 'dalemannya' sama aja. Tidak seperti di luaran sana, banyak varian e-cigar dgn bermacam spec sesuai keinginan user termasuk spare part-nya sehingga user bebas memilih sesuai kebutuhan.

5. E-cigar ukuran standar normal biasanya tidak memiliki 'battery life' yg cukup lama sesuai keinginan kita (umumnya hanya berkisar 2-3jam untuk 'heavy user') jadi pertimbangkan untuk membeli e-cigar yang batere-nya bisa tahan lama (walaupun ukurannya lebih gede), atau bisa juga dengan tipe PCC yg kotaknya bisa nge-charge. Tentu ini akan merogoh kocek lebih dalam, tapi menurut saya mending inves awal agak mahal daripada belakangan jadi keluar duit lagi karena tidak puas. Namun jika kita hanya "lite user" mungkin e-cigar yg biasa (value pack) udah cukup.

6. Ukuran dan tipe e-cigar yang beredar sangat beragam, biasanya semakin besar e-cigar maka semakin besar pula kapasitas baterenya dan semakin lama pula waktu pakainya. Menurut saya yang terpenting adalah sedapat mungkin belilah ke trusted seller dan kalo bisa yang berani memberikan GARANSI. Ingat, ini adalah barang elektronik, kemungkinan fail/rusak selalu ada. Mending ngeluarin duit sedikit lebih daripada nyesel karena percaya omongan seller 'Barang ane gak ada garansi tapi jangan kuatir bos, ane jamin barang ane kualitasnya top'. Tapi yaaa semua tergantung anda sebagai pembeli, kalo udah kenal baik dan yakin dengan seller-nya ya monggo aja, hehe...

6. Konfigurasi interchangeable part antara satu tipe dgn tipe e-cigar lainnya tidak sama. Artinya bahwa kita tidak bisa menggunakan batere tipe A dgn atomiser tipe B. Jadi kalo mau beli sparepart sebaiknya disebutkan tipe e-cigarnya (lebih bagus lagi dgn sample foto) agar tdk salah beli. Sebenarnya sih bisa aja kita gunakan sparepart yg gak kompatibel dgn bantuan 'adapter' tapi sepertinya belum ada yg jual disini.

7. Yang terakhir, sekali lagi menurut saya e-cigar tidak benar-benar bisa menggantikan rokok analog. Sensasinya tetap beda (asap uap VS asap tembakau). Tapi bagi teman-teman yang ingin hijrah dengan tetap 'merokok' namun yang lebih sehat dibanding rokok analog maka e-cigar adalah jawabannya. Disamping itu anda pun bisa stylish dgn beragam tipe e-cigar yang beredar (blue led, penstyle, screwdriver, dll).

Girl Scouts can now earn badges in space sciences like astronomy and the search for ET

 Cache   

Through a collaboration with NASA and the SETI Institute, Girl Scouts can now earn badges in space science, from astronomy to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence.

“Part of science literacy is understanding our place in the big world, in the solar system, in the universe," Pamela Harman, the director of education at the SETI Institute, told Air & Space Magazine. "Once we realize that, I think it’s easier to think about protecting our planet.”

From Air & Space:

Girl Scout cadettes (grades 6-8) can earn the space science researcher badge by investigating properties of light and observing the night sky; seniors (grades 9-10) can obtain the space science expert badge by classifying stars and studying their life cycles; and ambassadors (grades 11-12) seeking the space science master badge will explore exoplanets through activities such as designing a habitat for an alien world.

A Novel Graphical Lasso based approach towards Segmentation Analysis in Energy Game-Theoretic Frameworks. (arXiv:1910.02217v1 [cs.LG])

 Cache   

Authors: Hari Prasanna Das, Ioannis C. Konstantakopoulos, Aummul Baneen Manasawala, Tanya Veeravalli, Huihan Liu, Costas J. Spanos

Energy game-theoretic frameworks have emerged to be a successful strategy to encourage energy efficient behavior in large scale by leveraging human-in-the-loop strategy. A number of such frameworks have been introduced over the years which formulate the energy saving process as a competitive game with appropriate incentives for energy efficient players. However, prior works involve an incentive design mechanism which is dependent on knowledge of utility functions for all the players in the game, which is hard to compute especially when the number of players is high, common in energy game-theoretic frameworks. Our research proposes that the utilities of players in such a framework can be grouped together to a relatively small number of clusters, and the clusters can then be targeted with tailored incentives. The key to above segmentation analysis is to learn the features leading to human decision making towards energy usage in competitive environments. We propose a novel graphical lasso based approach to perform such segmentation, by studying the feature correlations in a real-world energy social game dataset. To further improve the explainability of the model, we perform causality study using grangers causality. Proposed segmentation analysis results in characteristic clusters demonstrating different energy usage behaviors. We also present avenues to implement intelligent incentive design using proposed segmentation method.


          

Local community engagement, Part 5

 Cache   
Part 1 introduced this project to engage local residents in villages north of Cambridge UK. Part 2 elaborated on some resources available and communication via Story Maps. Part 3 looked at three more resources, introduced an open call and closed with an Elevator Pitch. Part 4 looked at community engagement's key differentiator, to search for local info your way, not the search engines'. Let's round this off with our own gazetteer, and then touch on issues around sea level rise maps.

Wikipedia Gazetteer

With my cottenham.info#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/116865&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com partner Terry Jackso, we completed a Cambridgeshire gazetteer from Wikipedia data! Click on View larger map  and select any town to pop up a full suite of associated information...




Cottenham2020 are a social enterprise keen on linking villagers and businesses for the better good. The context for this is climate change, and local environmental groups such as SusCott are among our partners. The neighbouring village of Histon&Impington just declared a climate emergency. Sea level rise maps are thus part&parcel of the environmental hazard assessment... but we have a surprise!

A tale of two sea level rise models

Part of the climate change risk&mitigation efforts revolve around coastal inundation. I first mentioned this almost a decade ago , when I highlighted flood.firetree.net#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/116865&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com sea level rise map based on NASA SRTM data. A more recent spectacular example on the same data is shown here.



I could not, however, source the original NASA data - an issue around openness and web services discussed five years ago - but I did find a version of it on Esri's Online platform. Toggle on the  WWF / NASA 4 and 11 m. sea level rise below, and see half of Cambridgeshire inundated!



When I was doing Arctic sea ice maps, however, I found NGDC-based CReSIS sea level maps. Desktop mapping showed me a far more conservative coastal inundation of East Anglia: measured from 1 to 6 m contrasts with the 4 and 11 m above. Luck would have it that @kennethfield  I follow on twitter already posted the 1 and 5 m global sea level rise. Toggle those two on in the map above, and you'll only see the north tip of Cambridgeshire inundated!

Note: both Firetree and CReSIS maps were created in 2006 and 2005 respectively, before this became a hot topic, unlike the Risk Zone Map very much in the news evidenced here.

This highlights the issues in modelling. Do consult the sources in my East Anglia sea level rise map. On the NASA side, incremental sea levels are intersected with SRTM topographic data to derive inundation zones (any SRTM data below incremental sea levels is marked blue as under water, any above are left clear as above water). On the NGDC side a two-step raster modeling procedure run atop GLOBE abd ETOPO2 elevation data models flooding scenarios.

Exposição “Pinturas Nordestinas” mostra obras de socioeducandos

 Cache   

O Supremo Tribunal Federal (STF) inaugurou nesta segunda-feira (7) a exposição “Pinturas Nordestinas”, com 27 quadros criados por jovens socioeducandos que retratam a cultura popular da Região Nordeste. A iniciativa visa apoiar as atividades de ressocialização de crianças e adolescentes em conflito com a lei por meio da arte. 

As obras foram produzidas por alunos da Escola da Unidade de Internação do Recanto das Emas (Unire), no Distrito Federal, a partir da releitura de trabalhos de artistas como Romero Britto e Ricardo Cavalheiros e xilogravuras de José Borges. Atualmente, a escola tem pouco mais de 200 internos. A coordenadora pedagógica Ana Rosa Sherman e a professora de educação artística Jaqueline Ornelas idealizaram o projeto, desenvolvido em aulas diferenciadas que criaram um ambiente descontraído e criativo para os jovens.

Nas telas, eles utilizam técnicas de colagem com aproveitamento de diversos materiais que sobraram da festa junina realizada este ano na escola, como tinta guache, palha, papel, tecidos, barbante e algodão. Alguns trabalhos retratam a realidade do sertão, sua fauna e sua flora, a música, a dança e a arte. Fazem, ainda, releituras das imagens de personalidades nordestinas como Padre Cícero, Lampião e Maria Bonita, e de uma das obras mais importantes e conhecidas de Tarsila do Amaral, o “Abaporu”.

Cidadania

“A ressocialização por meio da arte é um meio de defender os direitos da criança e do adolescente em nosso país”, afirmou a secretária-geral do STF, Daiane Nogueira de Lira, no lançamento da exposição. Ela ressaltou a importância de o Tribunal abrir suas portas para os trabalhos culturais de jovens que se encontram em situação de conflito com a lei e parabenizou os participantes do projeto pela iniciativa de concretização da cidadania.

Segundo o professor William Tannuri Fogaça Júnior, da Unire, a pintura faz parte do trabalho pedagógico no sistema socioeducativo e atua como forma de aproximação dos alunos. Ao lado de outras atividades, como o esporte, ela dá oportunidade para que eles se expressem por diversos meios e aprendam de forma diferenciada. “Estamos muito orgulhosos pelo reconhecimento do nosso trabalho com essa exposição”, disse. “Iisso é o que mais almejávamos, porque a escola é muito carente, inclusive de materiais básicos”.

Apresentação musical

Na abertura da mostra, um grupo de socioeducandos fez uma apresentação musical com voz, vilões, violinos e teclados. Eles executaram músicas como “Sabiá”, de Luiz Gonzaga.
A exposição permanecerá por um mês na Biblioteca Victor Nunes Leal do STF e pode ser visitada de segunda à sexta-feira, das 11h às 19h.

Mila111111: NASA: На Землю надвигается астероидный шторм – 16 астероидов за 7 дней!

 Cache   

Согласно специальному официальному объявлению NASA. опубликованному буквально только что, NASA обнаружило рой из 16-ти астероидов, сквозь который пройдет Земля в течении текущей недели. Самый крупный из астероидов этой группы по размерам значительно больше, чем Великая пирамида в Гизе, в Египте.


По данным Центра исследований околоземных объектов (CNEOS), 8 октября Землю посетят первые семь астероидов. Как отмечают в CNEOS, эти астероиды носят наименования: 2019 TU, 2019 TW1, 2019 RK, 2019 TC1, 2019 SB6, 2019 TM и 2019 TS. Эти астероиды начнут прибывать один за другим, начиная с раннего утра понедельника.

Хотя большинство этих астероидов пройдут мимо Земли на безопасном расстоянии, ожидается, что как минимум один из них пройдет он нас критически близко.


Согласно CNEOS, астероид 2019 T1 пролетит мимо планеты на дистанции 0,00378 астрономических единиц или примерно на 351 000 миль, что немного больше, чем расстояние между Землей и Луной


Эти астероиды, а именно 2019 TV1, 2019 TZ и 2019 SL7, посетят Землю рано утром 8-го октября (по британскому времени). Имея диаметр от 29 до 38 метров для планеты эти астероиды не опасны, но при попадании одного из них в город они будут убийственны.


Следующие астероиды, астероид 2019 TV1 и астероид 2019 TZ пролетят мимо Земли за миллионы миль, в то время как 2019 SL7 приблизится к Земле с расстояния всего 0,00363 астрономических единиц или около 337 000 миль.


Далее, еще один астероид пролетит мимо Земли в районе 10 октября. Он известен как астероид SX5 2019. Он самый крупный в обнаруженной группе и имеет диаметр 140 метров, то есть он больше, чем Великая Пирамида. По оценкам NASA он пройдет мимо Земли на дистанции 0,04533 астрономических единиц или около 4,2 миллиона миль.


Наконец в субботу, 12 октября, Землю посетят еще четыре астероида.


По сравнению с 2019 SX5, диаметр которого 140 метров, астероиды 2019 TN1, 2019 SK8, 2019 SV9 и 2019 SE2 значительно меньше. Их диаметры в среднем от 25 до 90 метров.


Ожидается, что эти четыре астероида посетят окрестности Земли рано утром в субботу по среднему британскому времени.


Последний астероид, который пролетит мимо Земли на этой неделе, называется 2019 TT1.


Этот астероид диаметр 38 метров и 13 октября он приблизится к Земле на дистанцию 0,00744 астрономических единиц или около 692 000 миль.


К счастью, астероидов хотя и довольно много, все они относительно небольшие и представляют опасность только при прямом попадании в город. Однако, если когда-нибудь на Землю упадет скала размером с астероид (99942) Апофис диаметром в несколько сотен метров – разрушения будут уже планетарного масштаба. В последний раз обитатели Земли видели этот ужас 66 миллионов лет назад, после чего всего они были уничтожены.

Калифорния погружается в 7 дней тьмы.


8 октября 2019 года все средства массовой информации Калифорнии и основные медийные ресурсы США сообщили американцам очень странную новость:


В связи с погодными условиями, такими как сильные ветры, из-за которых усиливаются пожары и начали падать линии электропередач, на период с 9 октября по 10 октября, а так же в течении следующих 7 дней 28 округов штата Калифорния превентивно, в том или ином объеме отключаются от энергоснабжения.

Карта затрагиваемых районов:



Ситуация складывается беспрецедентная и очень неоднозначная. Так, в Калифорнии сейчас действительно наступает время пожаров и всё там пылает со страшной силой:



Strong Santa Ana winds may develop over Southern CA later this week, raising the threat for quickly spreading wildfires.https://t.co/g#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/120144&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comPPHvxaET0 pic.twitter.com/ef#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/120144&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comIE7b1MlB

https://twitter.com/#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/120144&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.comNWSSanDiego/status/1181380967807586305


Когда в лесу происходит пожар, а вокруг дует сильный ветер, то распространение огня осложняется еще и обрушением ЛЭП, которые в Калифорнии не очень мощные: особых заводов там нет и электричество подается на городки и на города:



Это фото за ноябрь 2018 года и оно говорит о том, что ситуация и с пожарами, и с электричеством там постоянная. Но превентивно свет там никогда не отключали.


Более того, как следует из нижеследующей контурной карты отключения в Калифорнии будут ползучие, то есть начнется с 28 округов, а потом, в течении недели, начнут отключать и других потребителей, погружая их в тьму нежно и постепенно:





Как объяснить происходящее никто не знает. Особо напрягает американцев тот факт, что 3 октября 2019 года командование Морской пехоты США получило приказ к развертыванию на территории США. При этом морпехов передали в подчинение губернаторам штатов, где находятся их военные базы. Срок развертывания был 72 часа, по истечении которых энергетические компании Калифорнии сообщили, что на неделю тушат свет. То есть в 28 из 58 округов не будет работать интернет, радио, телевизор и прочее – новости граждане будут получать из объявлений местного левитана. И то – при условии, что у них есть приемник на батарейках.


Что происходит люди не понимают и все очень волнуются, поскольку ситуация беспрецедентная. Одни подозревают, что готовится дефолт доллара, другие видят в этом начало погружения страны в хаос и инициацию гражданской войны, третьи предполагают какое-то стихийное бедствие, которое ожидаемо.


Какая из обсуждаемых сейчас американцами версий самая правильная мы не знаем, но склоняемся к версии ожидаемого стихийного бедствия и напоминаем нашим читателям, что:


Во-первых, на протяжении текущей недели Земля проходит облако астероидов: NASA насчитало их 16 штук и до двух дистанция будет меньше, чем до Луны.



Камни не сильно большие, размером с Челябинский метеорит, но NASA вполне могло посчитать, что какой-то из них упадет на один из энергетических узлов Калифорнии. Его разрушение немедленно вызовет перегрузку сети, что всегда бывает, когда из системы вдруг резко выходит ГЭС, ТЭЦ или АЭС. Восстанавливать работу системы потом очень сложно и долго, поэтому находящийся под угрозой объект лучше планово выключить, постепенно и подконтрольно перераспределяя нагрузку.


Во-вторых, как мы уже сообщали еще в мае текущего года – 14 октября 2019-го должен сработать 47-ми дневный цикл Нибиру, открытый The End Times Forecaster. Скорее всего землетрясение будет в Калифорнии и USGS это знает, поскольку у них данные по циклу Нибиру точные.


А широкая публика гадает, большей частью, на кофейной гуще, поскольку, как правильно отсчитать 47 дней обращения вокруг Нибиру массивного спутника мы не знаем. Но пока, если брать за отсчет майское землетрясение в Перу – цикл работает: по прошествии 47 дней от Перу бахнуло в Калифорнии, потом прошло 47 дней и в Италии активизировались сразу три вулкана, а теперь 14 октября истекают следующие 47 дней, так что все может быть.


Ну а поскольку мы предвидим возмущение некоторых читателей, которые уверены, что раз Нибиру не видно, то её и нет, приводим ссылки на научно-популярные издания официлов sciencemag.org#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/120144&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com и phys.org#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/120144&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com, где люди уже открытым текстом пишут, что Нибиру – это, возможно, черная дыра.


То же самое пишет таблоид The Sun с аудиторией в миллионы читателей. Нам, конечно, совершенно до лампочки взгляды на астрономию знатоков теоретической физики из The Sun, однако главное тут другое. Главное, что про Нибиру и про черную дыру говорят уже официально и открытым текстом.


Еще есть в интернете такой господин как Олег Моленко. Он священник, находящийся в оппозиции попам, перевозящих свои телеса на мерседесах, поэтому он не очень известен и даже клеймим позором. Очень давно, лет десять, наверное, назад, когда у господина Моленко еще не было канала, но был свой сайт, он там выкладывал нечто наподобие полученного свыше откровения, в котором ему показали, что Нибиру – это черная дыра, которая в финальной фазе Апокалипсиса подойдет очень близко к Земле. Кто сомневается в наших словах – пишите автору канала, пусть перезальет ролик, который, по нашим подсчетам, лет через пять станет исключительно актуальным. Хотя, все его посмотреть не успеют ибо, как было сказано в откровении господину Моленко – с Земли тут многих сдует, особенно тех попов, что ездят на мерседесах. Вероятно из этих соображений они и копят массу.


А пока это долгожданное всеми время Нибиру не наступило – следим за развитием событий: если 14 октября (плюс-минус несколько дней) где-то бахнет – значит отсчет цикла Нибиру от землетрясения в Перу правильный и нужно считать следующие 47 дней, поскольку по прошествии этого периода М 8.0 будет где-то непременно еще.

Santo Evangelio 7 de Octubre 2019

Día litúrgico: Lunes XXVII del tiempo ordinario


Texto del Evangelio (Lc 10,25-37): En aquel tiempo, se levantó un maestro de la Ley, y dijo para poner a prueba a Jesús: «Maestro, ¿qué he de hacer para tener en herencia la vida eterna?». Él le dijo: «¿Qué está escrito en la Ley? ¿Cómo lees?». Respondió: «Amarás al Señor tu Dios con todo tu corazón, con toda tu alma, con todas tus fuerzas y con toda tu mente; y a tu prójimo como a ti mismo». Díjole entonces: «Bien has respondido. Haz eso y vivirás».

Pero él, queriendo justificarse, dijo a Jesús: «Y ¿quién es mi prójimo?». Jesús respondió: «Bajaba un hombre de Jerusalén a Jericó, y cayó en manos de salteadores, que, después de despojarle y golpearle, se fueron dejándole medio muerto. Casualmente, bajaba por aquel camino un sacerdote y, al verle, dio un rodeo. De igual modo, un levita que pasaba por aquel sitio le vio y dio un rodeo. Pero un samaritano que iba de camino llegó junto a él, y al verle tuvo compasión; y, acercándose, vendó sus heridas, echando en ellas aceite y vino; y montándole sobre su propia cabalgadura, le llevó a una posada y cuidó de él. Al día siguiente, sacando dos denarios, se los dio al posadero y dijo: Cuida de él y, si gastas algo más, te lo pagaré cuando vuelva. ¿Quién de estos tres te parece que fue prójimo del que cayó en manos de los salteadores?». Él dijo: «El que practicó la misericordia con él». Díjole Jesús: «Vete y haz tú lo mismo».


«¿Qué he de hacer para tener en herencia la vida eterna?»

Rev. P. Ivan LEVYTSKYY CSsR
(Lviv, Ucrania)

Hoy, el mensaje evangélico señala el camino de la vida: «Amarás al Señor tu Dios con todo tu corazón, (…) y a tu prójimo como a ti mismo» (Lc 10,27). Y porque Dios nos ha amado primero, nos lleva a la unión con Él. La beata Teresa de Calcuta dice: «Nosotros necesitamos esta unión íntima con Dios en nuestra vida cotidiana. ¿Y cómo podemos conseguirla? A través de la oración». Estando en unión con Dios empezamos a experimentar que todo es posible con Él, incluso el amar al prójimo.

Alguien decía que el cristiano entra en la iglesia para amar a Dios y sale para amar al prójimo. El Papa Benedicto subraya que el programa del cristiano —el programa del buen samaritano, el programa de Jesús— es «un corazón que ve». ¡Ver y parar! En la parábola, dos personas ven al necesitado, pero no paran. Por esto Cristo reprochaba a los fariseos diciendo: «Tenéis ojos y no veis» (Mc 8,18). Al contrario, el samaritano ve y para, tiene compasión y así salva la vida al necesitado y a sí mismo.

Cuando el famoso arquitecto catalán Antonio Gaudí fue atropellado por un tranvía, algunas personas que estaban de paso no pararon para ayudar a aquel anciano herido. No llevaba documento alguno y por su aspecto parecía un mendigo. Seguramente que si la gente hubiese sabido quién era aquel prójimo, hubiese hecho cola para auxiliarlo.

Cuando practicamos el bien, pensamos que lo hacemos por el prójimo, pero realmente también lo hacemos por Cristo: «Os aseguro que todo lo que hicisteis por uno de los más pequeños de estos mis hermanos, a mi lo hicisteis» (Mt 25,40). Y mi prójimo, dice Benedicto XVI, es cualquiera que tenga necesidad de mí y que yo pueda ayudar. Si cada uno, al ver al prójimo en necesidad, se detuviera y se compadeciera de él una vez al día o a la semana, la crisis disminuiría y el mundo devendría mejor. «Nada nos asemeja tanto a Dios como las obras buenas» (San Gregorio de Nisa).


«El que practicó la misericordia con él»

Hno. Lluís SERRA i Llançana
(Roma, Italia)

Hoy, un maestro de la Ley plantea a Jesús una pregunta que quizás nos hemos formulado más de una vez: «¿Qué he de hacer para tener en herencia la vida eterna?» (Lc 10,25). Era una pregunta que iba con segundas, pues quería poner a prueba a Jesús. El maestro responde sabiamente lo que dice la Ley, es decir, amar a Dios y al prójimo como a uno mismo (cf. Lc 10,27). La clave es amar. Si buscamos la vida eterna, sabemos que «la fe y la esperanza pasarán, mientras que el amor no pasará nunca» (cf. 1Cor 13,13). Cualquier proyecto de vida y cualquier espiritualidad cuyo centro no sea el amor nos aleja del sentido de la existencia. Un punto de referencia importante es el amor a uno mismo, a menudo olvidado. Solamente podemos amar a Dios y al prójimo desde nuestra propia identidad.

El maestro de la Ley va más lejos todavía y pregunta a Jesús: «Y ¿quién es mi prójimo?» (Lc 10,29). La respuesta llega a través de un cuento, de una parábola, de una historia corta, sin formulaciones teóricas complicadas, pero con un gran contenido. El modelo de prójimo es un samaritano, es decir, un marginado, un excluido del pueblo de Dios. Un sacerdote y un levita pasan de largo al ver al hombre apaleado y malherido. Los que parecen estar más cerca de Dios (el sacerdote y el levita) son los que están más lejos del prójimo. El maestro de la Ley evita pronunciar la palabra "samaritano" para indicar a quien se comportó como prójimo del hombre malherido y dice: «El que practicó la misericordia con él» (Lc 10,37).

La propuesta de Jesús es clara: «Vete y haz tú lo mismo». No es la conclusión teórica del debate, sino la invitación a vivir la realidad del amor, el cual es mucho más que un sentimiento etéreo, pues se trata de un comportamiento que vence las discriminaciones sociales y que brota del corazón de la persona. San Juan de la Cruz nos recuerda que «al atardecer de la vida te examinarán del amor».


          

Se reía de la Iglesia hasta que una frase de su hermano y la llamada de la Virgen le transformaron

Una profunda vivencia interior con la Virgen María cambió la vida de Wilder.

Se reía de la Iglesia hasta que una frase de su hermano y la llamada de la Virgen le transformaron

Una profunda vivencia interior con la Virgen María cambió la vida de Wilder.

Wilder Guerra es hoy un activo evangelizador de Lazos de Amor Mariano, asociación privada de fieles con aprobación diocesana nacida el día de la Virgen del Carmen de 1999 en Medellín, y posteriormente extendida a otras ciudades de Colombia y a otros países de América. Pero antes de ser un católico comprometido, Wilder vivió una época muy amplia de su vida muy lejos de la Iglesia. Su cambio proviene de un profundo encuentro con la Virgen, que ha relatado Portaluz:

Una visión de la Virgen transformó su corazón

Wilder Guerra es hoy un comerciante de 40 años, casado, con cuatro hijos, proveniente de una familia muy unida. “Mi papá albañil, mi mamá docente, de muy buenos principios, católicos por demás”, cuenta a Portaluz.

Nacido en Granada Antioquia (Colombia), recuerda que por años este fue un lugar violento, abatido fuertemente por la guerrilla y las creencias paganas. “En mi pueblo pululaban los grupos de oración con videntes, donde era muy común que la gente fuera a que le dieran sus mensajes, sus cosas, era como una brujería oficial”, destaca Wilder.

Él también buscaría crearse un dios a su medida oscilando entre grupos protestantes, también con seguidores de la ufología y otros de la New Age. Diez años anduvo en su búsqueda personal de un sentido trascendente, pero su corazón seguía inquieto.

La rabia y el perdón

Pero no gustaba de mostrar a otros aquellas dudas, las zonas oscuras del alma; y cuando vio que su hermano –a quien llamaban “oveja negra”- se convertía a la fe católica, lejos de apoyarle o respetar esa experiencia vital, lo cuestionaba.  “Yo no tenía fe y de alguna manera socavaba la fe de muchas personas y los cuestionaba con los mismos errores, vacíos y sofismos que yo tenía en mí”.

Resultado de imagen de wilder guerra lazos de amor mariano 

Su hermano no se dejó amilanar por la verborrea de Wilder y cuando este hubo terminado de hablar le respondió humilde… “Yo no estoy en la capacidad de contestar todas esas cosas, pero si la Iglesia católica es una mentira, no es necesario atacarla porque la mentira se acaba sola, no se sostiene, no es necesario. Entonces, te pregunto: ¿Por qué la atacas?”.

Wilder recuerda que en ese momento quedó unos instantes sin argumentos y solo pudo pronunciar dos palabras: “Es verdad”, respondió Wilder y nada más decir esto -agrega- sintió… “una explosión de ira, mucha rabia conmigo mismo al haber contestado eso porque yo quería decir todo lo contrario”.

A pesar de seguir inmerso en esa lucha interior, Wilder se dejó tocar por la bondad espiritual que su hermano le transmitía, pidiendo le perdonase por su conducta intolerante y aceptando la invitación de asistir juntos a un retiro espiritual mariano. 

"Soy tu Madre"

Pocos días después ya en medio de esa experiencia, le pidieron colaborar portando en procesión una imagen de la Virgen. La emoción le invadió mientras hacía el trayecto procesional con esa imagen de la Madre de Dios y perdió, dice, la noción espacio temporal por un tiempo que no logra precisar. Sintiendo un profundo ardor en el centro del pecho que se expandía por todo su cuerpo tenía visiones por lapsos breves, como relámpagos… Observaba como manos visibles arrojaban piedras contra imágenes de la Santísima Virgen y él podía sentir el dolor que provocaban aquellos ataques. “Entonces fue que escuché una voz diciéndome: «Soy yo en tu vida, soy tu Madre, aunque me has atacado»”.

Finalizado aquel retiro -ya hace 15 años- Wilder señala haber comenzado un proceso de conversión apoyado en los sacramentos, uno de cuyos frutos ha sido fundar en Cali una sede del movimiento Lazos de Amor Mariano.  “Mi sueño ahora es ser fiel a esta gracia que Dios me ha dado, para que con el instrumento que Dios tiene que es la Virgen María, podamos ayudar a tanta gente que como yo lo estuve, anda en la ignorancia, metidos en miles de ofertas espirituales, que solamente ahondan el vacío de muchas personas” afirma.

低成本探月接连失败 实施太空任务必须“不差钱”?

 Cache   

最近,印度月船二号探测器在落向月球南极的最后阶段突发状况,与地面失去联系,至今“生死未卜”。无独有偶,今年4月,以色列月球登陆器“创世纪”号,也在距离月面10公里时出现故障,摔到了月球表面,功亏一篑。

这两次任务的成本都不高。“创世纪”号是目前到达月球最小、造价最低的登陆器,任务花费仅1亿美元。月船二号项目成本略高,也不过1.5亿美元。这样的成本与美国航空航天局(NASA)同类项目相差甚远。

低成本太空任务是不是注定要面临更大的风险?全国空间探测技术首席科学传播专家庞之浩向科技日报记者表示,节约成本不是不可以,但不能一味追求便宜,应更多从技术创新的角度来实现。

过于强调成本 或增加风险,难获有价值成果

有报道称,印度的人工费用很低,其高水平航天工程师每月的工资仅为欧美工程师收入的零头,这能为他们的航天项目节约不少成本。

但想省更多,就要靠技术了。如果有成熟的火箭、航天器,或者完善的地面基础设施,就能缩短研发周期,省下一些技术研发和基础设施建设费用。

印度此前发射过月球探测器和火星探测器,具备一定技术基础,但技术水平并不很高。

2008年10月,印度发射了该国首个月球探测器月船一号。这台探测器造价约8300万美元,可以说很便宜了。同时,它的确有些本事。相比我国首个月球探测器嫦娥一号的200公里环月轨道,月船一号直接进入了距月面100公里高度的轨道;其携带的相机性能也不错,获取了分辨率较高的月球地质图、月球矿物图和月球地形图。为了“少花钱多办事”,月船一号搭载了6台国外的载荷,超过了载荷总数(11台)的一半,以弥补自身技术的不足。

不过卫星平台的缺陷,导致它未能完成为期2年的工作计划。2009年7月,月船一号的星体传感器发生严重故障,一度影响到定向导航。8月29日,地面突然与月船一号失去联系,多次努力均告失败,据判断,探测器的天线已停止工作。虽然NASA于2017年发现月船一号仍在月球轨道上转悠,但再也无法传回数据。

2013年11月,印度发射了火星探测器曼加里安号,10个月后,该探测器成功进入火星轨道,使印度成为亚洲第一个、全球第四个成功进行火星探测的国家或组织。

此次火星探测任务的预算只有7300万美元,比许多好莱坞电影都便宜得多(如《地心引力》预算约1亿美元,汤姆·克鲁斯主演的《明日边缘》预算达1.78亿美元),但其技术含量也很有限。

首先,印度的运载火箭能力不强,其极轨卫星运载火箭的地球同步轨道运载能力只有1吨多,仅为我国长征五号火箭的十分之一。庞之浩说,受火箭运力制约,印度只能拿出“蚂蚁啃骨头的精神”,通过探测器围绕地球多次变轨,才能飞向火星。

这种比较“原始”的方法,早已不被航天界看好,因为这会消耗探测器大量燃料,直接影响其工作寿命。事实证明,曼加里安号抵达火星后,虽然开展了一些探测,但都是简单重复前人所为,并未获取有价值的科学数据。

此次月船二号也是如此。庞之浩说,与我国嫦娥三号、嫦娥四号落月时采用大型可变推力发动机不同,印度不具备这种技术能力,因而使用多台发动机并联,通过控制发动机工作数量来调整推力。同时其姿控发动机数量较少,备份也不够。探测器最终坠毁,很可能与发动机在切换时失控有关。

庞之浩认为,印度虽然实施了一些低成本太空任务,但过于强调成本,一方面会增加风险,另一方面也很难获得有价值的科学成果。如上述工程项目,最终收获以政治意义为主,也具有一定工程意义,但科学价值极为有限。

论节约的正确方式 钱都花在刀刃上,以创新谋最大效益

2007年9月,日本也发射了首颗绕月探测器——月亮女神一号。与印度的“穷游”相比,日本走的是“不差钱”路线。月亮女神项目耗资约4亿美元,当时被日本称为“美国阿波罗计划之后规模最大、最复杂的探月计划”。

常言道“一分钱一分货”,重金打造的月亮女神一号技术十分复杂。庞之浩介绍,其由1个主探测器和2个子探测器组成,搭载了15种精密仪器,有些仪器的探测精度能达到以往同类设备的10倍甚至100倍。这使它能以前所未有的精度对月球进行全面观测,获得了大量全新而且很有价值的探测数据。

可是,搞航天一定得这么烧钱吗?其实低成本航天活动的成功案例并非没有,我国嫦娥一号任务就是其中一个。

2004年初,中国探月一期工程立项。国务院批给该工程20亿元经费,实际花了14亿元,其中包括嫦娥一号探测器、火箭的研制,以及2个地面测控站的建设。剩下的6亿元被用于研制备份探测器,即嫦娥二号。按照当时的汇率,14亿元人民币相当于1.7亿美元左右。

2007年实施的嫦娥一号任务,无论在工程上还是技术上都取得了很大成功。其不仅使我国突破并掌握了大批具有自主知识产权的核心技术和关键技术,也为后续探月及深空探测任务奠定了基础,在科学上取得了许多重要成果,例如获得120米分辨率全月球影像图,探明了14种有用元素在月球的含量与分布等。尤其是我国采用创新思路,凭借1台CCD相机和1台激光高度计解决月面拍摄难题,获得了世界首幅三维立体全月图。

由于嫦娥一号获得了成功,原本作为其备份的嫦娥二号,成为了探月二期工程的先导星。它不仅在探月成果上更进一步,为后续落月任务探了路,还成功开展了多项拓展试验。其开展的日地拉格朗日2点探测,以及对图塔蒂斯小行星的飞越探测,取得了珍贵的科学数据;最后飞至1亿公里以外,对我国深空探测能力进行了验证。

可以看出,虽然中国也注重节约成本,但该花的钱并未盲目节省,而是把每一分钱都花在刀刃上,通过技术创新谋求效益最大化。

如果将中、日、印三国同期发射的月球探测器进行对比,月船一号耗资最少,探测器体积最小、重量最轻,广泛采用了国际合作方式;月亮女神一号最贵、最大、最重,技术含量最高,与嫦娥一号同为自主研制。从任务完成情况来看,月船一号“提前退场”,而中日月球探测器均超期服役,圆满完成了任务。

庞之浩表示,所谓节约成本,并不能只看眼前利益,一味求便宜,而要从任务全局考虑算总账。例如在载人航天领域,我国天宫一号目标飞行器跨越“登场”,直接跳过了国外先发射两艘飞船验证交会对接技术的过程。又如货运飞船,俄罗斯的做法是将联盟号飞船改成进步号货运飞船,我国天舟一号货运飞船则是在“天宫”基础上改进而成,虽然研制经费较多,但运输能力比进步号多出将近2倍,后期运营成本可以大大节省。

综合来说,无论是火箭、航天器还是人工成本,都不可能无限制的降低,何况还要付出牺牲任务目标的代价。真正有“科技含量”的节约,是花该花的钱,办更多的事,但这需要以技术创新为基础。(付毅飞)


          

Comment on NASA is Working on Electric Airplanes by sajc

"Inverters are critical to electronic propulsion systems since they convert alternating current (AC) – generated by engine-mounted generators and the electric motors driven by propellers – to the high-voltage direct current (DC) power." I don't get this. Inverters convert DC to AC not the other way around. And why would an electric aircraft have "engine-mounted generators" and "electric motors driven by propellers"?

CASTRO LABOREIRO pertence ao concelho de Melgaço e situa-se no Parque Nacional da Peneda-Gerês. Possui um dos mais ricos patrimónios pré-históricos do país que reúne gravuras e pinturas rupestres, 120 Dólmenes (datados de há 5000 anos) e Cistas (monumentos megalíticos funerários).

Esta aldeia possui um património histórico e arquitetónico de grande riqueza, destacando-se um tipo próprio de construções castrejas existentes em Castro Laboreiro: o Castelo de Castro Laboreiro – classificado como monumento nacional; a Igreja Matriz de Castro Laboreiro; o Pelourinho de Castro Laboreiro, datado do século XVI, classificado como imóvel de interesse público; igrejas medievais; os fornos comunitários; os espigueiros; e os moinhos.

Situada no extremo Norte do Alto Minho e de Portugal. Está localizada no cimo da montanha, a mais de mil metros de altitude, levou a que os castrejos defendessem os seus costumes, e tradições de todas as influências estranhas, e que ainda hoje persistem. Uma dessas tradições é a das inverneiras e das brandas. Em meados de dezembro, com a chegada do frio e dos nevões, as populações de Castro Laboreiro pegam nas suas roupas, utensílios caseiros e de lavoura e ‘tangendo o gado, migram em massa para os vales, onde possuem uma segunda casa e uma segunda aldeia.’ (Rocha, 1993, p. 127). E ficam nas Inverneira, abrigados do frio, até meados de março.

No Núcleo Museológico de Castro Laboreiro é possível conhecer os hábitos, costumes e tradições das gentes da terra. Terra das ‘viúvas dos vivos’, nome a que os seus habitantes davam às mulheres cujos maridos, filhos e netos emigravam em busca de condições de vida melhores.

É uma região de grande beleza, serpenteada pelo rio Laboreiro, que é atravessado por inúmeras pontes representativas das épocas romana ou medieval, das quais sobressaem a Ponte da Dorna, a Ponte da Capela, a Ponte Nova ou da Cava Velha e a Ponte Velha.

Castro Laboreiro é também conhecido pelo seu fumeiro e enchidos, confecionados de forma tradicional, por mãos hábeis e com o saber de anos e anos.

O guardião desta localidade é o Cão de Castro Laboreiro, defendendo o gado do grande predador, o Lobo Ibérico, conhecido pela sua rusticidade, caráter e nobreza desde tempos idos.

Recorde-se que Castro Laboreiro foi finalista nas 7 Maravilhas de Portugal® – Aldeias e foi distinguida com o Prémio 5 estrelas, na categoria ‘Aldeias e Vilas’, no âmbito do concurso ‘Portugal Cinco Estrelas’ 2018.

Quantum Supremacy? Yes and No!

Quantum Supremacy Is and Is Not

How quantum is that?! The RadioFreeHPC team discusses the Google/NASA paper, titled "Quantum Supremacy Using a Programmable Superconducting Processor", that was published and then unpublished. But it's the internet and everything is a "digital tattoo", so there are copies out there (see below).

The paper, right in its title, and at least in that draft form, claimed Quantum supremacy. "Doing what?" we hope you ask. Well, nothing particularly significant, and decidedly quantum-friendly. You might even call it "embarrassingly quantum" since quantum is all about probability functions and this experiment samples the probability distribution of a repeated experiment. But it's not nothing. 

One scary consequence of quantum supremacy is its ability to readily factorize large numbers which could be used to unscramble encrypted data. But A) this is not what happened, B) it's not expected to happen any time soon (think years), and C) it will depend on the specific encryption algorithm. We must say, however, that the paper looks pretty good. Here's the abstract. Click on the title to read it all:

Quantum supremacy using a programmable superconducting processor

Google AI Quantum and collaborators The tantalizing promise of quantum computers is that certain computational tasks might be executed exponentially faster on a quantum processor than on a classical processor. A fundamental challenge is to build a high-fidelity processor capable of running quantum algorithms in an exponentially large computational space. Here, we report using a processor with programmable superconducting qubits to create quantum states on 53 qubits, occupying a state space 253∼1016. Measurements from repeated experiments sample the corresponding probability distribution, which we verify using classical simulations. While our processor takes about 200 seconds to sample one instance of the quantum circuit 1 million times, a state-of-the-art supercomputer would require approximately 10,000 years to perform the equivalent task. This dramatic speedup relative to all known classical algorithms provides an experimental realization of quantum supremacy on a computational task and heralds the advent of a much-anticipated computing paradigm.


LANL gets the First 5,000 Qubit D-Wave

Meanwhile, D-Wave announced that its new 5,000 qubit quantum computer has found its first home at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Qubits are different from vendor to vendor in terms of the underlying technology and implementation. Shahin lists several.

Henry Newman's Why No One Should be Online, Ever.

Henry tells the fascinating story of Krebs thwarting the nefarious schemes of a professional hacker who aimed to frame him and actually mailed him narcotics. The mastermind behind it was was arrested and imprisoned for unrelated charges. Henry is really turning this into a good news segment. Dan isn't encouraged, however.
