KodakNo.3BrownieModelB的鏡頭(1917) 冼鏡光 April15,2019上線 老鏡叢談:拆老機、玩老鏡系列的上一篇文章KodakAnastigmat152mmf/6.3老鏡在此 十一年前(2008),在此介紹一台十九世紀末的KodakNo.2Bulls-Eye:Kodak的早期傻瓜盒子相機(1895)時就有把它的鏡頭拆下來拍攝的衝動,終究是因為這是一台古物而下不了手,過了些日子後念頭就淡了。前些日子整理機材時看到這台相機,拆機的衝動又出現,這次不再猶豫,上網找了台較晚但卻比較有名而且產量相當大的Brownie。這台Brownie相機光圈可以運作、T快門正常、鏡頭乾淨,但機身卻有點破損,所以售價相當便宜,當下就成交。我不計較機身品相,因為我只要鏡頭,而且生產量大、日後要保存展示的話,多花點錢買台漂亮的就好。 這台相機叫做Brownie倒是有個緣由的。1898年時Kodak的老闆GeorgeEastman要求相機設計人FrankBrownell設計一台非常便宜但同時又可靠好用的相機,因為GeorgeEastman認為降低售價就可以吸引更多人、特別是小孩進入攝影領域,同時就提高了底片的銷售業績。Brownell弄出了一台極為簡單的盒子相機、並且命名為Brownie,在1900年2月上市。在19世紀末到20世紀初,加拿大的插畫家和作家出了一系列噲炙人口極受兒童歡迎的有插畫的童書,名字就叫做TheBrownies、講的是一群小精靈的故事(譬如上學、出遊、等等兒童耳熟能詳的題材);此地brownie指的就是這一群小精靈(或說是sprite)、不是拿來吃的布朗尼糕。下面是從一本在1887年出的書《TheBrownies-TheirBook》中翻抽下來的若干插畫。 Kodak當時就用Brownie的造型打廣告,結果一砲而紅,此後80年間Brownie就幾乎成為普羅大眾口中的攝影,而相機本身也幾經改版,但一直維持在盒子樣式,後來的機型改用塑膠而非木料、而且還有閃光燈型。不論如何改良,那種容易操作、相機結構簡單倒是一脈相傳。此地要談的No.3Brownie在1917年上市,大致到1934年停産,到1921年時大約生産了47萬台,總産量可能超過一百萬台。 Kodak有許多不同的Brownie機型,此地介紹的是盒子機型,此外還有摺疊式Brownie、BrownieTLR(雙鏡反射式機型)、等等,名目繁多,此地就不一一說明了。接下來,我們會談到如何取下鏡頭、如何操作、如何轉接等技巧,然後用一系列照片說明鏡頭的特性。希望您喜歡這種拆老相機鏡頭裝到現代數位相機上的玩法! 相機和它的鏡頭 Kodak的No.3Brownie是一台十分簡單的盒子相機、從1908生産到1934,它使用124底片、片幅是10.795x8.255cm(3.25x4.25英吋),因此對角線長為135.896mm,是135底片對角線長43.267mm的3.14倍。換言之,135底片上的鏡頭焦距乘上3.14倍大約就是這台相機上視角相當的焦距。所以這台相機的標準鏡頭大致上就是120mm到180mm,相當於135相機上的40mm到60mm。 下面就是這台盒子相機(4.375x5.125x6.125英吋)的照片。從照片可以看出,機身上方和右側各有一個方形的觀景窗,上(或右)方的觀景窗使用前方面板上(或下)方的圓形鏡頭。相機前方的大圓孔就是拍攝用鏡頭。機身左側的小圓孔是腳架孔。 機身上方的左前(下左照片)和機身右側下前方(下右照片)各有一個扣著機身和前方鏡頭的扣子,把它轉到大孔所在就可以鬆開鏡頭上的小突出,從而把鏡頭從機身中拉出來,第二張照片中右邊是鏡頭部位、左邊是機身的盒子。 下面是鏡頭部位,開孔處是底片經過的地方,前方圓孔才是鏡頭: 鏡頭是用一個方型漏斗狀的鐵罩罩著的,主要就是防止機身各處可能漏光、從而影響到底片。在鐵罩的一面打上了相機型號(No.3BrownieCameraModelB) 和專利日期(1916年2月1日和1916年3月21日)。以扣著鏡頭的圓扣子的樣式來看,這一台應該是1917年10月以後的版本、最遲不會到1920年,因為1920年Kodak推出第三版,而這台相機的第一版(1908–1911)的扣子樣式不同。另外,ModelB(第二型、在1911年8月上市)在1917年8月有個小改版,所以此地的相機是第二型的第二板。 把這個鏡頭部位豎著放,會看到凹進去的地方有三個釘子、在對稱的另一面也如此,把這六個釘子拔掉才能把鐵罩子取下留下鏡頭。 因為鏡頭部位是木頭的,找個小老虎鉗子很容易起出來。把釘子拔出來後不要忙著把鐵罩子取下來,因為鐵罩子是套在鏡頭後方的木片上的,機身都已經近百年、用力一掀很可能就破壞了鏡頭背面的木板。釘子取下後,輕輕地把鐵罩往前推,之後才能取下鐵罩(下面第一張照片),拿下來後就會發現鏡頭是在一個幾乎是正方型的扁木盒中(第二和第三張照片)。 鏡頭操作 鏡頭部份上方有兩個可以抽出來的長條,寛的管光圈、窄的管快門。這台相機只有兩個快門速度、一個是T叧一個是一般速度(不知道是多少),把窄的長條抽出來的快門是T(下面第二張照片);換句話說,把快門按下去打開快門、再按一次關閉快門,這正是我要的,因為快門速度是由拍攝用的相機控制。 把寛的長條抽出來可以控制光圈。當寛長條沒抽出來時,光圈是最大的(下面第一張照片,此地是用T快門)、把長條抽出一半得到中央光圈(第二張照片)、把它完全抽出來就是最小的光圈(第三張照片);所以這台相機有三個光圈,大致上每個光圈之間差一級。 相機右側是快門桿(下面照片),把它往下撥打開快門、相機內的快門機制會自動關閉。在T快門時,往下撥打開快門,再撥一次關閉快門。 前面說過,快門速度由拍攝用的相機控制,所以我都是把快門定到T、再調整光圈拍攝。然而,我們可以看到光圈開孔相當小,於是快門速度很難很快,所以我大部份時間都用最大光圈、偶而使用中等光圏。 另外,因為鏡頭部份內有光圈和快門機制,很怕再進步分解鏡頭可能會把這些機制弄壞,所以就打算到此為止、不再分解鏡頭部份了。 如何改裝? 首先,我得找出一個可以把這個鏡頭裝上相機的方式。思考一會兒之後,我覺得應該裝上一個非常普及的裝鏡頭的方式,那麽M42(42x1mm)絶對是首選,所以找了一個T到M42的轉接環,這是在1980年代之前很普及的方式。那時不少副廠生產鏡頭時會生產T(正確地說是T2)接環鏡頭、再附一個T2到其它相機(譬如Canon、Minolta、Nikon、Olympus、Pentax、M42等等)的接環,所以從這些給M42用的鏡頭上把它的T到M42接環取下,再用強力膠黏到鏡頭後方、並且用黑膠帶把四周全部貼滿避免漏光,就像是這樣: 這樣鏡頭就有了一個M42的螺紋!要如何裝上相機呢?第一,我不知道鏡頭的真正焦距,因此需要一個蛇腹以便可以確實量出需要的長度。我量過了鐵罩子的長度,大約是12cm,因此蛇腹的長度大約是12cm、而且還會短一些。為什麼?這台相機並沒有對焦機制,換言之,鏡頭應該是對焦在泛焦距離(hyper-focaldistance)附近,所以鏡頭到底片的距離會比12cm短些。以下就是開始測試時的器材,下面照片中很容易看出有M42接環的鏡頭和NikonPB-6蛇腹,後排中是Nikon到Sony的轉接環、前排中是一個約16mm的M42延伸筒,中間的那個銀色的是M42到Nikon的轉接環: 於是,蛇腹後面是一個Nikon到Sony的接環、再接上SonyA7II。在鏡頭方面,先是在鏡頭的M42螺紋上接了16mm的延伸筒、再透過M42到Nikon接環,這就完成了用蛇腹的裝法。16mm的延伸筒是用來增加一段距離、以免在裝鏡頭時鏡頭被蛇腹軌卡住,當然蛇腹必須拉到最長端才能裝鏡頭。 這些老鏡頭沒有抗反射膜,所以最好加一個遮光罩。我有一個不太常用的52mm遮光罩,所以在鏡頭前方也黏了一個62-52下降接環,這樣就可以使用52mm的遮光罩了: 為了要拿出去拍攝,帶著個蛇腹十分不方便,所以得找出個簡單的方法。從使用蛇腹的經驗、我用了兩個M42有對焦機制的M42的對焦筒、再加上一個M42到Sony的轉接環。首先,我把一個25-40mm的對焦筒裝在鏡頭後方、再加上前述的16mm延伸筒,在後方的是一個17-31mm的對焦筒。在後面的17-31mm對焦筒是用來決定對焦到無限遠的距離(前面的對焦筒是定在最短的);也就是說,把前方的對焦筒定到最短,對一個在非常遠的的物體用後方的對焦筒對焦,成功後後方的對焦筒長度就不變了,往後就用前方的對焦筒對焦。下面兩張照片就是用這種方式裝成的簡單而且可攜性非常高的方式。 再說鏡頭 依據各種文獻的說法,這台相機的鏡頭是個新月形雙合透鏡(meniscusachromate)、凹面朝外,是個非常簡單的鏡頭。因為光圈很小、對焦十分困難,所以在戶外拍攝時對焦失誤十分常見;光圈小而帶來的慢快門速度也是個問題,於是我幾乎都沒用到最小光圈。 鏡頭當然沒有抗反射膜,而且因為凹面朝外,鏡頭下(或上)緣的亮光常會被反射到鏡頭的上(或下)緣、從而産生奇怪的泛光。不但如此,還會使拍到的影像對比變低。因此,我的做法是讓畫面稍許曝光不足,從而保留多一些細節、當然也可以讓泛光不那麼明顯。 因為這些緣故,本文的照片可能有些對焦欠準。另外,生産這台相機時彩色底片還沒上市,當時用這台相機拍攝的全是黑白底片,因此本文除了有用這個鏡頭拍攝的彩色照片之外,也提供了轉換成黑白的照片。當然,這些照片全被縮成600x400大小,大致上就是124底片的寛度、但高度是短了些。從黑白照片看來,對比實在不高,所以我也用Photoshop的自動對比(AutoContrast)的功能提高對比,如果看起來太不自然,就自己用Level稍許調整。在底片時代可以在放相時用高對比相紙得到比較高對比的效果。或許您會說我應該直接拍黑白、並且在鏡頭前面加黃或紅色濾鏡提高對比,但是一來是用濾鏡太不方便、二來是快門速度會太慢,我沒這様做。 下面是124底片和135底片大小的示意圖,我用SonyA7II拍攝,所以相機只擷取了原鏡頭畫面中央約1/9的大小,因此影像素質不致於太難看。 一些照片 接下來我們看看拍攝結果。第一張是此地的昇降鐵橋,拍攝時地上水上都還有冰、難以選擇個好的拍攝位置。接下來的照片是轉成黑白、和加強對比後的結果: 下面是畫面下方對焦所在、和畫面右方的裁切。對焦部位的解析度明顯不足,因為下方的鐵欄桿糊到難以分辨。右方的裁切可以看到隱約的紫邊、而且柱子右邊都有蔓延出來的暈。 下面是右橋塔頂端,細節不多,但表現不錯,請記住這是一百多年前的簡單鏡頭。另外,因為光圈小,各個畫面中會出現塵點的影子,這是無反光鏡機身的一大致命傷,我的這台A7II的除塵功能沒多大用處,手上的NEX5和NEX6也如此。這麼多年來,Sony在這一項功能上似乎沒什麼長進。 再看第二組照片,這是咱們學校經營的滑雪場,畫面下方是結冰的湖面,上頭的軌跡是雪上摩托車跑過的痕跡。 下面是對焦部位的裁切,距離不詳,200公尺到300公尺是有的,除了左右有點蔭開的現象之外,這個一百多年前簡單鏡頭的表現還不俗。但是,離開中央品質就差了,第二張是左上角的裁切。 這一組是城裡頭街道一景,對焦是遠處的教堂鐘樓。畫面左方的建築(沒掛招牌那一棟)是1860年代末的樓,那個區域都是老房子、曾經在十九世紀末二十世紀初有過風光的歲月,下知道當年住那兒的有錢人有否用這一型相機用這個角度拍過這一棟老樓。 下面是鐘樓頂端用來對焦的十字架,看起來還真不錯: 接下來是對街的房子: 這是對焦部位,樹枝和窗框等的表現還真很好、只是對比很低。 這是校園中一個哈士奇(Husky)犬的像,以及嘴部的對焦位置,除了隱約有一層薄霧的感覺之外,解像力的確不錯。 這是色彩鮮明對比高的景,不太能夠察覺出是一百多年前鏡頭拍的吧?我們看看對焦部位的指針部位,很明顯地鏡頭問題就出現了。請看長指針,上方邊緣表現相當好,但下方邊緣和左下方的弧形邊緣卻因為有暈而削弱了解像力,這是像散(astigmatism,一般叫做散光)的徵候(請看拙著《DSLR:觀念、技巧與原理》中第M-50到M-52頁的解釋。 其次是週五圖書館中一景,空盪盪了,對焦部位是女孩的頭部。 咱們圖書館一個角落有一間小小的Starbucks,這是座位上方的燈飾,對焦部位是最前方的燈。從燈的虛化程度來看,這個鏡頭的最大光圈真的是很小的,但整個畫面的效果是很好的,不是嗎? 其他課題 因為SonyA7II只用到原鏡頭影像中央約1/9的區域,所以邊緣失光(暗角)不是個問題,見下面的第一張照片。變形也一樣,因為中央部位有變形也是相當低的(第二張照片)。 我們看看色散(特別是紫邊)。下面照片中太陽在樹幹後方,第二張是左上角部位的裁切;很明顯地,樹枝左緣有紫邊、右緣有綠邊。然而,這個鏡頭的生産年份在彩色底片出現之前,為黑白底片生產的鏡頭、特別是低價鏡頭,在修正色像差方面不是首要課題。 我們一直提到這個鏡頭會產生很嚴重的泛光,下面照片就是一例,在中央右方的太陽把畫面右方全洗白了。 下面第一張照片是加了前述小遮光罩拍攝的,陽光在右上角畫面之外,左下角就有很嚴重的泛光。稍許換個角度再拍一次,泛光就少多了(第二張照片),所以用這個鏡頭時得花很大的工夫尋找拍攝角度和地點降低泛光。 因為這個鏡頭泛光十分嚴重、縱使一直加上前述的小遮光罩後也如此(上面兩張照片就是加了遮光罩拍攝的),所以我一直在想是否遮光罩不夠長。為方便計,我用兩個望遠鏡頭遮光罩接在一起、長度約16公分,看看情況是否好些,這就是下面照片: 接下來我在室內用閃光燈拍一個固定的景,並且用鏡頭上的三個光圈(大、中、小)各拍一張照片,敏感度是定在ISO100。照片拍好後用Photoshop的Desaturate功能轉成黑白、也用自動對比(AutoContrast)提高對比。為了瞭解鏡頭在SonyA7II上的表現,我也把中央和右下角部位裁下來做個比較;要注意的是,此地裁下來的「右下角」其實是原鏡頭中央1/9部位的右下角、真正的原鏡頭拍到影像的右下角還很遠。總之,如果此地的右下角表現不佳,那麽原鏡頭影像的右下角會更差;然而,若此地的右下角不差,卻也未必能保証原鏡頭的右下角會很好。 下面是用最大光圈拍攝的結果並且縮成600x400,在目前的顯示器上大致就是比原底片直接無放大印相的尺寸小一些。這一組三張照片是SonyA7II照片縮成600x400的結果、轉成黑白的結果、和自動修正對比後的結果。很明顯地,使用超長遮光罩後,畫面中幾乎沒看到泛光了。 接下來是使用中光圈的拍攝結果: 最後是最小光圈的結果。要注意的是,在拍這張照片時,閃光燈出力已經是最大,因此相機的敏感度得調到ISO320才能得到類似的曝光;因為在中光圈時閃光燈已經調到最大出力,把ISO從中光圈使用的ISO100調到ISO320是12/3級;換言之,最小光圈和中央光圈曝光的差異約是1又2/3級。 我們看看三個光圈在中央表現的差異,下面是三個光圈中央部位600x600的裁切,依次是最大、中央和最小光圈。很明顯地,最大光圈時每一個字母都有向右暈開的暈、中央光圈時這層暈消失鏡頭表現不錯、最小光圈時是差了些但(依個人看法似乎比最大光圈好差、至少沒有暈)。另外,從裁切看來,最小光圈的結果是亮了些,或許中央和最小光圈差距不是12/3級、而是11/3級。 下面是右下角的400x500裁切。這很顯了,字旁邊的暈在大光圈最大、中光圈次之、到小光圈就幾乎完全消失了。 結論 前面介紹了幾乎和中華民國同庚的KodakNo.3BrownieModelB上的鏡頭,這是個很簡單的新月形雙合透鏡,因為這台相機似乎以青少年為對象、並且當時都使用直接印相而不放相,所以鏡頭素質並不需要十分高。又因為SonyA7II只擷取了原鏡頭影像中央部位約1/9的區域,所以得來的影像還不壞、大致上還能在近代高解析度的晶片下表現不太差。 一般而言,在最大光圈時各物體外圍都會有一層暈、它會隨收小光圈而消失。在135片幅的邊緣(只是原片幅的中央1/9)也有暈、而且表現也稍遜,隨著收小光圈暈會消失、而且解像力也有所提升,在邊緣表現最佳的是最小光圈。 另一方面,這個為黑白底片設計的鏡頭在色澤表現上飽和度相當低、在黑白照片上如果不加強對比就都是淡淡的。紫邊和綠邊都有些、但不會十分嚴重,真正嚴重的是鏡頭很容易産生泛光,最後是發現遮光罩要很長才有辨法擋得住一些不需要的斜射光。 總之,用相差近100年的鏡頭和相機拍攝的確富饒趣味,想想這可能是我祖父母甚或曾祖父母用的鏡頭就覺得頗有點思古幽情、雖然那時候有錢能玩得起相機的人實在不多。往後有機會,我會再去拆其它早期的老機的鏡頭,看看效果如何。 未經本人同意,請勿轉載轉貼本文任何片段,請尊重智慧財產(著作)權 引用方式:冼鏡光,KodakNo.3BrownieModelB的鏡頭(1917),DCView.com達人部落格(http://blog.dcview.com/article.php?a=DzMDZgVjATIMaQ%3D%3D)

Lotus Engineering "back in business" and planning expansion

 Cache   
Lotus being built As Lotus revives the Elan and others, the British firm's engineering arm has a raft of new projects in the works

Lotus Engineering, the division that acts as an engineering consultant for third-party clients, is set to be expanded under new leadership. Boss Miguel Fragoso has begun reinvigorating the division, with a new commercial director appointed. Fragoso has kept a team “working on the areas instrumental in maintaining our capability”, such as advanced structures, dynamics, propulsion systems and electronic controls.

During the cost-cutting drive under previous Lotus CEO Jean-Marc Gales, Lotus Engineering’s contribution to the group’s turnover dwindled to as little as 15%. In the past, it has contributed almost half. However, Fragoso has credited Gales with bringing “the financial discipline that it didn’t have. That made it more attractive for an investor.”

Recent projects have included an exploratory exercise in collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover for the government’s Technology Strategy Board and two projects with unnamed Japanese companies.

“We’ve been able to keep some extraordinary talent,” said Fragoso. He also pointed out that by offering services in these areas, “we are more than subject specialists, we are a car company ourselves”, providing additional insight.

For these reasons and because of the fresh impetus behind Lotus Engineering, Fragoso said: “We’re back in business.” It’s a business he divides into two broad areas: one being the familiar mainstream car makers, the other start-ups. Within this, he said: “We will be working with Geely.” For the future, Fragoso said: “We want to be among the leading companies providing these services. And these companies aren’t small.”

Assisting this ambition will be the fact that Lotus is now developing the electric Evija hypercar and a new family of sports cars, a process that exposes it more fully to the latest technologies, better enabling it to take on “projects that align with our sports car plans”.

Lotus Elan in frame as Boxster rival in revival plan

Lotus Elan render
How the new Lotus Elan could look, as imagined by Autocar
The Elan could be reborn, joining a range of old favourites being reintroduced through Lotus's new growth strategy

Lotus is considering reintroducing the Elan name on a new drop-top sports car, as well as other models in a back catalogue that includes the Elite, the Europa and the Esprit.

The Elan name is said by sources at the Hethel-based firm to have a strong possibility of being revived in the next few years. Few of the details are known at this stage but insiders are said to be “very excited” by the proposed configuration of this car, which is expected to be positioned above the Elise as a two-seat convertible with more refinement, space and creature comforts to take on the Porsche Boxster. Despite this, the new car should stick to the classic Lotus traits of being lighter than rivals and among the best in its class to drive.

The company is developing an all-new, rivet-bonded platform to replace its two existing structures – with the Elise/Exige architecture dating back to 1995, and the Evora to 2008. The all-new platform, which is around two years away, will provide the basis for a new sports car range including the Elan.

The proposed new model would be the third-generation Elan; the first highly regarded version of this sports car series was introduced in 1962. The platform family on which it’s broadly based is the central plank of a new product cycle plan that’s part of Lotus’s 10-year ‘Vision 80’ strategy.

Before these newcomers, Lotus will launch the last variation on the current Evora platform, a new sports model. It will appear late next year as a very driver-focused package but it will also be significantly easier to get in and out of than current models and have much improved ergonomics. Alongside this, CEO Phil Popham has expressed a need to overhaul the brand’s rather limited connectivity technology, so we could see new Lotuses ditching the usual aftermarket stereo systems for a bespoke infotainment set-up.

Planning a decade ahead is a given for most car makers but a strategic rarity for Lotus. It has been enabled by the Vision 80 investment programme led by Popham. In the past, the company has typically had the resources to develop only one car at a time. Now it can realise a complete product plan.

The scale of this investment has been estimated at around £1.5 billion by Bloomberg, although this figure is said to be “very conservative” by a Lotus spokesman. That sum should be enough to pay for the new architecture, whose structural concept will be similar to the current platform.

Lotus will retain the rivet-bonded alloy core concept, which, insiders say, provides excellent overall stiffness and allows plenty of scope to increase local rigidity for different models. These qualities will be essential if the high-grade driving dynamics promised by the company’s ‘for the driver’ brand ambition are to be achieved.

The rivet-bonded approach also suits Lotus’s sales goals. Although the firm is aiming to increase sales sixfold – from last year’s 1630 cars to around 10,000 by 2029 – this vehicle construction method reportedly remains the best solution for Lotus’s relatively low volumes.

The rivet-bonded and composite structure is also light – essential to the Lotus mission – and its detail design will benefit from the brand’s 25 years of production experience with this technology.

As before, a mix of materials will be used, probably across a wider palette that includes carbonfibre and several metals. A key ambition will be to reduce the time required to build each car, say insiders. That will be achieved by reducing the time it takes to bond each structure and also by cutting the number of hours required to assemble a car, the corollary of which should be improved quality.

Containing costs will be aided by the use of ‘keep zones’, the term Lotus engineers use to describe the three-dimensional slices of architecture that will be shared among all cars using this new platform. One example is the position of the front wheel relative to the driver’s seat, a high-investment zone of the platform that it makes sense to retain across all versions. But the ‘keep zones’ strategy doesn’t preclude tailoring the wheelbase and track to suit the needs of different models, insiders say.

As for the new model being introduced late next year, this will be the last new variant to be developed on the current Evora platform and much effort has been expended on ergonomics. That includes not only the driving position and forward visibility but also the ease of getting into and out of the car, a drawback of the current models that has limited sales.

Given the wide variety of cars to be derived from the all-new platform – from track-only models via an Elan to the Evora and Esprit supercar, which is also understood to bea long-term goal for Lotus – the scope for a variety of dynamic and functional levels will need to be built in. The company has reportedly done a lot of work assessing competitor cars to define these goals at the outset for each new model.

The targets also include the cars’ electrical functionality. Insiders have reported that membership of the Geely Group is giving Lotus affordable access to everything from infotainment systems and electronic dampers to electric power steering technology. The last of these will be essential for providing the advanced driver assistance systems mandated by law in some markets, but there will also be models, probably track-focused ones, with unassisted steering.

Regulations and a shifting market will also demand that alternative powertrains be developed and these are said to be under evaluation. But, as Lotus found when developing the Tesla Roadster from the Elise, packaging large numbers of battery cells can affect both the platform’s design and the car’s dynamic behaviour, which Lotus will hope to limit in part by harnessing tech from Geely.

The recent announcement of a Geely combustion engine and hybrid development centre, created by combining the Volvo and Geely internal combustion development departments, would provide a source of expertise.

A further sign of the more substantial resources behind Lotus is the plan to develop all models for worldwide homologation from the start, as well as building in the scope to cater for the customer requirements of markets such as China and the US. The long-mooted SUV will be key to these markets. It is tipped to become Lotus’s ‘cash cow’ in the same way the volume-selling Cayenne and Macan have become for Porsche. “Today, Porsche is our benchmark,” Group Lotus CEO Feng Qingfeng told Autocar earlier this year.

Schwann cells expressing nociceptive channel TRPA1 orchestrate ethanol-evoked neuropathic pain in mice

 Cache   
Excessive alcohol consumption is associated with spontaneous burning pain, hyperalgesia, and allodynia. Although acetaldehyde has been implicated in the painful alcoholic neuropathy, the mechanism by which the ethanol metabolite causes pain symptoms is unknown. Acute ethanol ingestion caused delayed mechanical allodynia in mice. Inhibition of alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) or deletion of transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1), a sensor for oxidative and carbonyl stress, prevented allodynia. Acetaldehyde generated by ADH in both liver and Schwann cells surrounding nociceptors was required for TRPA1-induced mechanical allodynia. Plp1-Cre Trpa1fl/fl mice with a tamoxifen-inducible specific deletion of TRPA1 in Schwann cells revealed that channel activation by acetaldehyde in these cells initiates a NADPH oxidase-1–dependent (NOX1-dependent) production of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and 4-hydroxynonenal (4-HNE), which sustains allodynia by paracrine targeting of nociceptor TRPA1. Chronic ethanol ingestion caused prolonged mechanical allodynia and loss of intraepidermal small nerve fibers in WT mice. While Trpa1–/– or Plp1-Cre Trpa1fl/fl mice did not develop mechanical allodynia, they did not show any protection from the small-fiber neuropathy. Human Schwann cells express ADH/TRPA1/NOX1 and recapitulate the proalgesic functions of mouse Schwann cells. TRPA1 antagonists might attenuate some symptoms of alcohol-related pain.
          

Splicing factor SRSF1 controls T cell hyperactivity and systemic autoimmunity

 Cache   
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is a devastating autoimmune disease in which hyperactive T cells play a critical role. Understanding molecular mechanisms underlying the T cell hyperactivity will lead to identification of specific therapeutic targets. Serine/arginine-rich splicing factor 1 (SRSF1) is an essential RNA-binding protein that controls posttranscriptional gene expression. We have demonstrated that SRSF1 levels are aberrantly decreased in T cells from patients with SLE and that they correlate with severe disease, yet the role of SRSF1 in T cell physiology and autoimmune disease is largely unknown. Here we show that T cell–restricted Srsf1-deficient mice develop systemic autoimmunity and lupus-nephritis. Mice exhibit increased frequencies of activated/effector T cells producing proinflammatory cytokines, and an elevated T cell activation gene signature. Mechanistically, we noted increased activity of the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway and reduced expression of its repressor PTEN. The mTOR complex 1 (mTORC1) inhibitor rapamycin suppressed proinflammatory cytokine production by T cells and alleviated autoimmunity in Srsf1-deficient mice. Of direct clinical relevance, PTEN levels correlated with SRSF1 in T cells from patients with SLE, and SRSF1 overexpression rescued PTEN and suppressed mTORC1 activation and proinflammatory cytokine production. Our studies reveal the role of a previously unrecognized molecule, SRSF1, in restraining T cell activation, averting the development of autoimmune disease, and acting as a potential therapeutic target for lupus.
          

Cannabidiol attenuates seizures and EEG abnormalities in Angelman syndrome model mice

 Cache   
Angelman syndrome (AS) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by intellectual disability, lack of speech, ataxia, EEG abnormalities, and epilepsy. Seizures in individuals with AS are common, debilitating, and often drug resistant. Thus, there is an unmet need for better treatment options. Cannabidiol (CBD), a major phytocannabinoid constituent of cannabis, has shown antiseizure activity and behavioral benefits in preclinical and clinical studies for some disorders associated with epilepsy, suggesting that the same could be true for AS. Here, we show that acute CBD (100 mg/kg) treatment attenuated hyperthermia- and acoustically induced seizures in a mouse model of AS. However, neither acute CBD nor a 2-week-long course of CBD administered immediately after a kindling protocol could halt the proepileptogenic plasticity observed in AS model mice. CBD had a dose-dependent sedative effect but did not have an impact on motor performance. CBD abrogated the enhanced intracortical local field potential power, including the delta and theta rhythms observed in AS model mice, indicating that CBD administration could also help normalize the EEG deficits observed in individuals with AS. We believe our results provide critical preclinical evidence supporting CBD treatment of seizures and alleviation of EEG abnormalities in AS and will thus help guide the rational development of CBD as a treatment for AS.

IMH, Duke-NUS and Neeuro Pilot Home-Based Brain-Training Game to Help Children with ADHD

 Cache   
Nov 06, 2019

• Researchers at IMH, Duke-NUS and A*STAR have developed an advanced brain-computer interface technology that harnesses machine learning to personalise brain-training for children with ADHD.
• Partnering local tech start-up, Neeuro, the researchers are rolling out a pilot home-based intervention programme for children with ADHD undergoing treatment at IMH. The take-home kit comprises a wireless headband and a Samsung tablet with the pre-loaded game.
• Extensive clinical testing through a large-scale randomised clinical trial of the game-based brain-training programme found improvements in the attention span of children with ADHD.

Singapore, 6 November 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- A first-of-its-kind personalised, interactive brain-training game will soon be helping children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) improve their attention span. The unique selling point of this technology is that children with ADHD can participate in this programme from home. A pilot run for the home-based programme will be launched for 20 children, aged 6-12 years, who are currently receiving treatment for ADHD at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH).

The game, called CogoLand1, was developed through a decade’s worth of extensive research, utilising Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology that incorporates machine-learning algorithms to personalise attention training, with the hope of complementing mainstay ADHD treatment. The use of CogoLand to complement ADHD treatment is the result of a collaboration between IMH, Duke-NUS Medical School and A*STAR’s Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R). Neeuro Pte Ltd, a local tech startup and spinoff from A*STAR, is the current sole licensee of the technology.

This non-invasive ADHD intervention programme was the subject of a large scale randomised clinical trial funded by the National Medical Research Council, involving 172 children with ADHD in Singapore.2 Associate Professor Lee Tih Shih, from Duke-NUS’ Neuroscience and Behavioural Disorders programme and Principal Investigator of the large scale clinical trial, commented: “Our patented, personalised intervention using advanced BCI technology has shown very promising and robust results, and we hope it can benefit many children with ADHD in the future.”

Furthermore, Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) scans of a subset of the children, led by Associate Professor Juan Helen Zhou, also from Duke-NUS, showed positive post-training effects observed in brain areas associated with attention and task-orientation.3 The patented technology was summarised by Professor Guan Cuntai, technical lead of the system and scientific advisor to Neeuro: “Our technology can accurately quantify a person’s attention level in real-time using a machine learning algorithm and, from there, develop a unique patented personalised training programme using a feed-forward concept for cognitive training. Further improvements have been made in recent iterations by capitalising on the latest deep learning approaches with our large dataset.” Professor Guan was also the Principal Scientist who led the BCI research when he was part of A*STAR’s I2R.

Dr Lim Choon Guan, Deputy Chief of the Department of Developmental Psychiatry at IMH said: “While medication and behavioural therapy are effective in treating symptoms of ADHD in children, some parents are also keen to explore other approaches that can help their children to improve their concentration. After a decade of collaborative work, our team is very excited to pilot this home-based brain-training game which parents can use to help their children regulate themselves.” The home-based programme will see the 20 children each receive a take-home kit that includes Neeuro’s brainwave-reading SenzeBand and a Samsung tablet with the preloaded CogoLand game, which they will use following a prescribed regimen for the duration of the programme. This approach is intended to be a complement and/or supplement to conventional ADHD treatment.

According to Dr. Alvin Chan, CEO and Co-Founder of Neeuro, “At Neeuro, our aim is to utilise technology to enable positive change in the neurological agility and fitness of our users. We are privileged to be working with institutions such as IMH, Duke-NUS and A*STAR, in conjunction with our hardware partner Samsung, to explore the use of cutting-edge technology in order to achieve this aim. It is our hope that this trial paves the way to enable the progressive development of new complementary options that will bring about positive outcomes for the millions of children afflicted with ADHD globally, especially those in Singapore.”

Mr Philip Lim, CEO of A*STAR’s innovation and enterprise office A*ccelerate, said: “It is always fulfilling when homegrown technologies are translated into meaningful outcomes. We are proud to be a part of Neeuro’s journey, and A*STAR will continue supporting entrepreneurial companies like them to grow and innovate.”

October 25 devotion - What Do You Want?

 Cache   
Matthew 20:32 Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” He asked. (NIV)

            In the Gospel story from Matthew 20:29-34, Jesus heals two blind men outside the city of Jericho. They had been begging at the gate of the city, so when they heard that Jesus was there, they suddenly cried out to Him for help. Obviously, they had been told stories of this new teacher who healed all sorts of people. As He passed by them with His entourage of followers, they realized this would be their only chance to be cured of their blindness.

            When Jesus heard their cries, He stopped what He was doing and asked them, “What do you want me to do for you?” The answer was obvious: they wanted to see. Jesus then quickly healed them of their blindness and they were both so thankful for this miracle that they decided to follow Him. It was not only an end to their blindness, but it was also a new beginning for their spirits.

            Throughout our days, we all ask Jesus for help and healing. We experience situations and circumstances that are difficult and sometimes painful. We look to Jesus to stop what He is doing, in order to lift us up and out of those predicaments. After Christ has helped us, how do we respond? Are we grateful for His aid? Are we thankful for His support? Are we willing to follow Him faithfully and serve Him after having our prayers answered, or do we take Him for granted until the next emergency or crisis in our lives?

Point to ponder

When was the last time Jesus helped me and answered my prayer? Have I responded faithfully by following Him?

Prayer: Lord Jesus, You know us completely and are fully aware of our present difficulties and current circumstances. When we cry out to You for help, please hear our prayers. And when those prayers are answered, strengthen our faith so that we may gratefully follow and serve You. In Your Holy Name, we pray. Amen.

Độ bền của phủ răng sứ phụ thuộc vào đâu? Lời giải đáp chi tiết từ bác sĩ

 Cache   

Độ bền của phủ răng sứ sử dụng được bao lâu là vấn đề được nhiều người quan tâm khi lựa chọn loại phủ răng sứ để phục hình. Tuy nhiên, độ bền của phủ răng sứ thẩm mỹ còn tùy thuộc vào nhiều yếu tố, trong đó có bản thân loại phủ răng sứ và việc phục hình răng như thế nào.


phụ nữ cười hở lợi có 2 dòng chính đó là phủ răng sứ kim loại và phủ răng sứ toàn sứ. Mỗi một loại phủ răng sứ sẽ có đặc điểm khác nhau, vì thế độ bền của phủ răng sứ ở mỗi một loại sẽ khác nhau.
điều trị cười hở lợi bao nhiêu tiền với cấu tạo lớp khung sườn bên trong được làm bằng kim loại và phủ răng sứ ra bên ngoài. Mặc dù phủ răng sứ kim loại rất cứng chắc, chịu lực ăn nhai tốt nhưng do lớp khung sườn bằng kim loại, nên sau một thời gian sử dụng, lớp khung sườn bên trong sẽ bị oxi hóa trong môi trường miệng và thức ăn, gây ra tình trạng thâm đen viền nướu.
Vì vậy, đối với phủ răng sứ kim loại, độ bền của phủ răng sứ có thể duy trì được khoảng 5 năm thì cần thay mới để đảm bảo tốt về thẩm mỹ như ban đầu. Riêng với phủ răng sứ Titan với lớp khung sườn được làm hoàn toàn bằng titan nên độ bền của phủ răng sứ sẽ được khoảng 7-10 năm.

Predictors and Clinical Correlates of Gestational Age at Booking: A Multicenter Survey

 Cache   

Background: Although several factors are known to influence the gestational age at booking, current knowledge indicates that the distribution of these factors could vary from one country to the other, and even within countries, the variation could exist between states. This study aimed to assess the prevalence, predictors and clinical correlates of gestational age at booking in southern Nigeria.

Materials and Methods: One hundred and fifty pregnant women who visited the study centres within the study period were evaluated for socio-demographic, clinical and biochemical characteristics associated with early and late ANC initiation using standard instruments and procedures.

Results: Fifty-six per cent (56%) of the pregnant women initiated ANC within the first thirteen weeks of gestation according to the WHO recommendation. Fewer numbers of previous pregnancies and births were significantly associated with early ANC initiation. Being of older age, (OR=1.52, C.I=1.318-1.956), fewer number of previous pregnancies (OR=2.2. C.I=1.923-2.511), low parity (OR=2.05, C.I=1.884-2.264), public servant (OR=1.52, C.I=1.316-1.753), higher educational attainment (OR=2.21, C.I=1.043-3.498) significantly increased the likelihood of early ANC initiation. Also, pregnant women who booked early had a lower incidence of anaemia, hypertension and gestational diabetes and better biochemical endpoints.

Conclusion: Some demographic variables and fewer numbers of pregnancies and births were significantly associated with a higher likelihood of early ANC initiation and vice versa. These factors should be considered in designing interventions to improve gestational age at booking among pregnant women in Nigeria and globally.

Sky Rezidence Bohdalec

 Cache   

O projektu: V Praze 10 na Bohdalci pod bohdaleckým kopcem se rodí nové bydlení v podobě Sky Rezidence Bohdalec. Jde o bydlení typu Sky House, které je zároveň energeticky úsporné. Dva nové domy s osmi nadzemními podlažími v sobě bude ukrývat celkem 58 nových bytů, a to s plošnými dispozicemi od 1+kk až po 3+kk, přičemž výměra bytů činí od 30,3 do 86,7 m2. Nebudou chybět ani celkem čtyři obchodní prostory , všechny se budou nacházet v prvním nadzemním podlaží. Soukromí a klid zajistí okna situovaná do privátního vnitrobloku a balkony a terasy i různá intimní zákoutí.

Odstínění hluku z rušné dopravní křižovatky zajistí přístupové chodby. V prvním podzemním a prvním nadzemním podlaží vzniknou parkovací stání a sklepní kóje, parkovacích stání je k dispozici celkem 65, sklepních kójí 59. Dokončení výstavby objektů je naplánováno na červenec 2021. Projekt vzniká pod dozorem developera Bohdalecká Project Development.

Lokalita: Roh ulic Bohdalecká a U Plynárny je významnou dopravní křižovatkou na Praze 10 a právě zde roste nový developerský projekt Sky Rezidence Bohdalec.

Top 5 takeaways for developers from Microsoft Ignite 2019

 Cache   

Microsoft’s annual Ignite conference has usually catered to IT professionals, with a focus on servers, applications, and management tooling. That’s not the case this year, with developers getting a much larger slice of the pie.

It’s not surprising, really. Microsoft’s transition to cloud behemoth is almost complete, and the modern hybrid cloud needs code that can take advantage of Azure’s hyper-scale platform. There were so many developer announcements that they ended up getting their own separate keynotes, one for Azure and one that brought Windows and Office together under the umbrella of Microsoft 365.

What were the biggest announcements for developers at Microsoft Ignite 2019? I’ll explore the top five below.

Inside Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney's Honeymoon in Indonesia

 Cache   

Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney's have embarked on an idyllic honeymoon after saying "I do."

The Oscar winner and her art gallerist beau tied the knot in Rhode Island in mid-October, exchanging vows in front of celeb guests Adele, Ashley Olsen, Nicole Richie, Joel Madden, and Cameron Diaz. The couple's nuptials came eight months after Lawrence's rep confirmed the Hunger Games star's engagement to E! News. Lawrence and Maroney, who works as a director at Gladstone 64, first sparked romance rumors in the summer of 2018.

Now that Maroney and Lawrence are officially husband and wife, the couple has jetted off for a romantic honeymoon. According to People, the newlyweds are staying at the Nihi Sumba Resort, located in Indonesia.

"At Nihi Sumba, we build itineraries that transcend a traditional vacation experience. We foster creativity and passion in our guests, helping them unplug from their hyper connected lives and reconnect with earth and community," the resort's website states. "Each experience is singular, custom. Made to fit each guest differently. The days are yours, let us help you design your adventure."

7 Things to Know About Jennifer Lawrence & Cooke Maroney's Romance

Lawrence and Maroney are reportedly staying at the residence of resort owner Chris Burch. The five-villa estate, called the Raja Mandaka, offers gorgeous views of the ocean and a luxury pool.

So, how much does it cost to stay in the five-villa Mandaka estate? That would be $12,745 per night! That means, if Lawrence and Maroney decided to stay for a week, it would typically cost them just under $90,000.

A source also told People that the couple went horseback riding during their stay at the resort. According to the resort's price list, equestrian activities for couples range from $140 (swimming with horses) to $300 (Nihioka Ride & Breakfast).

If the newlyweds wanted to take a private surf lesson on their honeymoon, the total cost for a couple is listed at $495 for an hour and a half. The resort also has a spa, which offers massages, manicures, and body treatments, among other options. And if Lawrence and Maroney wanted to enjoy a private yoga session, they'd be looking at a $200 price tag for an hour session.

And, fun fact for those Hills fans out there, this resort is the location where Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter had a wedding celebration in June 2018. Though a source later shared that the duo, who called it quits over the summer, were never legally married.

SE WI segregation fueled by governments which need to address it

 Cache   
11/5/19 update: I am adding to this post about environmental justice and government-enabled discriminatory planning in SE WI the schedule of an important television documentary about the destruction of African-American homes, business and neighborhood cohesion by I-43 construction from Milwaukee to the northern suburbs:

[Updated from 1/8/19 - - with news of litigation alleging racial profiling in a traffic stop on a stretch of interstate highway reminiscent of another outburst in Waukesha County which ended in hate crime convictions.]
------------------------------------------------------------------------

There should be widespread dissemination of yet another report focusing on Southeastern Wisconsin's worst-in-the-nation segregation, but let's add some history and information to the discussion - - especially with a new Governor more attuned to the needs of cities and their residents.

As I have noted often on this blog, the disparities have been fueled by multiple actions by multiple layers of government as far back as the 1950's - - and 50 years later - - and often involve transit, such the Robin Vos-led prohibition against regional transit authorities which can move people to jobs and housing across local jurisdictional lines, to repeated threats to the sparse bus connections which do link urban workers with suburban employers.

In fact, civil rights and public health organizations had to force the Walker administration via litigation to provide a welcome, but hardly restorative sum - - $13.5 million in a billion-dollar project - - for transit during Zoo Interchange construction that would put the work into compliance with federal law. 
The Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission urges better public transit financing. Photo included in recent SEWRPC report.


I am also calling attention to this 2008 item about regional segregation, and am reposting one summary from 2016, below:

State and regional governments keep Milwaukee, minorities isolated, part II

On Monday I posted some lesser known facts and history about race, economic justice and inequitable use of regional and state governmental power that have kept the City of Milwaukee poorer than its wealthier and whiter neighbors for more than 50 years.

A technical glitch on the blog duplicated the post, so what I want to do is put the text in one place, below, with a few updates.

*  I added a link to the most recent budget of the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission - - the seven-county, state-created agency located in Western Waukesha County that makes recommendations for the region in such crucial development-related areas as land use, transportation, water distribution and others - - but on which the City of Milwaukee has no designated seat, no authority to name a commissioner and thus relatively less influence on commission spending and policy-making than its whiter, more affluent, more suburban and still-rural neighbors. 

The six other counties outside of Milwaukee all have three commission seats, fewer minority residents and residents total than both the City of Milwaukee and Milwaukee County - - yet while Milwaukee County with most of its residents living in the minority-majority city pays the largest annual share of the agency's budget.

Because City of Milwaukee residents are contributing roughly half of the Milwaukee County tax collections, I argue that city residents are taxed for SEWRPC purposes without representation.

*  I am also adding here a link to SEWRPC's most recent report on affirmative action, hiring and staffing, and note that, as it has in the past, the agency says in these reports that it continues to struggle attracting minorities to its most-senior positions.

And SEWRPC candidly includes this ironic, telling, all-encompassing reality about jobs and the Milwaukee-centered region which Scott Walker's anti-urban, anti-transit policies have made worse: 
Transit services have -- at least temporarily -- been terminated by Waukesha County to the Commission’s primary work place in the Waukesha area. Today 38 percent of Commission employees commute from Milwaukee County residences. The Commission has long recommended in its plans, and advocates strongly for improved transit service to job centers throughout the Region. The Commission has identified the severe transit funding problems in the Region, and the need for dedicated funding. Implementation of the Commission’s regional transit plans should provide reasonable transit access to the Commission’s present primary office location.
Echoing its 2012 affirmative action report:

In its 2011-2012 Affirmative action report - - click on the pdf at the bottom of this SEWRPC page - - SEWRPC says:
Transit services have -- at least temporarily -- been terminated by Waukesha County to the Commission’s primary work place in the Waukesha area.
Four-to-five years is "temporarily"?

The original post from Monday:
-----------------------------------
Media and others interpreting civil unrest in Milwaukee might want to dig deeper into a few issues:

*  Cities are creatures of the state in Wisconsin, and during the Scott Walker era, Milwaukee has lost state-supplied revenue - - the program dates back decades as a substitute for local income tax collections - - and also lost the ability to expand its budget above state-mandated limits.

*  The "hypersegregation" label applied to Milwaukee is regional, tolerated for decades.

Many of these issues and impacts have been studied and reported to death, but the state and region resist meaningful change.

*  The state put a permanent limitation on Milwaukee's growth, tax base, job market and citizen opportunities when it froze the city's borders in 1955 through the so-called anti-annexation "Oak Creek Law."

As a result, suburbanization around Milwaukee boomed, and with it also a proliferation of discriminatory housing local ordinances which, though ruled illegal years later, remain camouflaged through legal substitutes mandating expensive home construction site and interior dimensions (in Chenequa, in Waukesha County, for example) or Mequon's decades-long five-acre lot minimum, now eased, that effectively kept residency upper-income and predominately white in that Ozaukee County community.


No other Wisconsin municipality has had its borders - - and its future - - politicized, influenced and fixed by a special state law: 
Through the use of restrictive covenants, exclusionary zoning, and aggressive police patrols, these suburbs have over the years tried to keep the City of Milwaukee, as a real and symbolic embodiment of the “urban,” out of their self-styled sanctuaries. These policies, in turn, have had the effect of concentrating the poor, people of color, single moms, and unemployed young men in the City of Milwaukee itself. The new suburbs form what [historian John] Gurda calls the “iron ring” around the City of Milwaukee, and there is no obvious way to break through the ring.
Interestingly enough, the new suburbs are the very communities in which support for Governor Walker is strongest. 
*  The state created a seven-county Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission in 1960 made up of Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha, Walworth, Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha Counties.

[Updated] SEWRPC, with staff and headquarters in Western Waukesha County that is far from Milwaukee, literally and philosophically - - and not even on a transit line - - prepares influential studies, provides technical assistance to governmental agencies in matters such as housing, water and transportation, and has the power to approve certain highway projects paid for with federal funds.

All effect job creation, access, distribution, and economic opportunity.

The commission's makeup, focus and output is heavily suburban and exurban.

Each of the counties has three commission seats. For most of its existence, the commission had no African-American members.

Most of the region has higher incomes and housing values than does Milwaukee.

Commissioner appointments are controlled by the Governor and the counties.

The City of Milwaukee, with a population larger than all the non-Milwaukee counties, and by far the largest number of transit dependent, minority and low-income residents in the region and state, has no designated commission seat or appointing authority.

Yet the commission's budget comes 100% from taxes, so the city of Milwaukee and its residents are taxed without representation for commission purposes.

More financial unfairness: Milwaukee County, which has the same number - - three - - of commissioners as do the other six counties, including far smaller and still rural Walworth, for example, picks up 33% of the counties' annual tax contributions to SEWRPC, according to the agency's most recent, and relatively stable budget.

I noted SEWRPC's disconnect from minorities in this blog's first month in February, 2007, and have covered its activities repeatedly in the intervening years.
------------------------------------

The Wisconsin ACLU, from its Milwaukee offices, has rightly told the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission that the agency is moving far too slowly with the formation of a task force on environmental justice.

SEWRPC has had months to get this outreach effort underway but has not made task force appointments and is not aggressively getting input on appointees from communities to whom this long-overdue outreach effort is aimed, the ACLU says in its new release.

With its laissez-faire approach, SEWRPC is skating on thin ice with watchdog groups like the ACLU, and federal regulators who could use federal civil rights to light a fire under SEWRPC, as the ACLU further reminds SEWRPC by letter.

The Pewaukee-based agency already has minimal credibilty with large sections of the region because of its pro-suburban history, and giving the task force formation a low priority only reinforces SEWRPC's negative image.

At this very moment, SEWRPC and other entities are discussing major changes to transit and water management policies that will guide development in the region for generations, and will therefore profoundly impact low-income residents.

Yet those residents are regularly shut out of many of these policy discussions - - a problem the environmental justice task force could help remedy.

If SEWRPC had a comprehensive planning strategy and a more inclusive mentality, it wouldn't need an environmental justice task force in the first place: its commissioners and multiple committees would have integrated genuine environmental justice principles and goals into all their work as a matter of routine.

For example, if environmental justice were an important thread in SEWRPC operations, its last housing plan for our heavily-segregated region wouldn't have been done in 1975, and SEWRPC would have been a champion for transit expansion, not $6.6 billion in new, suburb-serving freeways lanes.

It's a disgrace that community groups representing low-income and minority populations had to demand a task force in the first place, and reprehensible that SEWRPC continues to drag its feet on its implementation.

-----------------------------------------------
In recent years, the commission did establish a task force on economic justice, but only after initial resistance from the top and successful pressure from citizen and civil rights organizations.

The same kind of pressure recently led to federal civil rights litigation which forced the state to add a relative pittance - - about $13 million dollars worth of temporary transit services - - to a billion-dollar regional highway expansion at Milwaukee's western border with more affluent, faster-growing Waukesha County which the state is building at the recommendation of the commission.

More billions have been spent and will be added in future years to the same freeway expansion principally serving white, affluent areas in the region without  transit extensions.

*  Waukesha County, GOP state legislators, and then-GOP Gov.Tommy Thompson blocked light rail connections between the City of Milwaukee and Waukesha County then went further and blocked light rail development within the City of Milwaukee.

A summary story about light rail, regional politics and disparities and SEWRPC, here.

Some years later, Waukesha County officials pulled the plug on a jointly-funded bus line - - Route 9.


The line had connected the two counties, but its cancellation sent an anti-urban message regionally and deprived Milwaukee residents without access to a car - - one documented tally some years ago out the figure at 87,000, or about 15% of the total city population - - of one option for reasonable access to out-county jobs who.

*  As has been par for the course, the state just helped win for the City of Waukesha a jobs-and-growth guaranteeing diversion of water from Lake Michigan.


Let's take a bit of a closer look at how all this works.

SEWRPC had already recommended Lake Michigan water transfers to communities, including Waukesha, before the Great Lakes states accepted the city's diversion application first green-lighted by and then strongly backed across the Great Lakes region by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.


Matt Moroney, an attorney representing regional builders, was a forceful member on the SEWRPC's water advisory committee. 

That body endorsed Lake Michigan diversions beyond the Great Lakes basin and the SEWRPC commission formally adopted those recommendations.

Moroney became the Deputy Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources after Scott Walker won the governorship in November, 2010, and now serves as a special assistant on Walker's staff. 

No Milwaukee individual has had that kind of suburban-development enabling impact on local, regional and state development.

State and regional policies have for decades kept Milwaukee and its residents land-locked, economically stunted, disconnected from neighboring wealthier, whiter areas and thus segregated - - regionally - - by race and economic status.

*  Add in Walker's failed job-creation policies, his scandal-ridden and failed job-creation agency, his refusal to allow the minimum wage to rise above the poverty-enforcing level of $7.25/hr. and his deletion of tens of thousands of poor people from food stamp roles - - summary posting, here - - what do you think the ripple effects have been and will continue to be in the Wisconsin city with the largest number of low-income and unemployed people?

This blog has covered these issues for nearly ten years. There are hundreds of posts with supporting documentation. Use the index box at the upper left.

if we're going to have a discussion about segregation, let's look at the bigger picture.

Vmworld 2019, Tanzu e Kubernetes guidano il futuro

 Cache   
tanzu kubernetes

Vmworld 2019 apre orizzonti nuovi: la piattaforma per ii container Tanzu integra Kubernetes in vSphere, Nsx e vSan.

Ne abbiamo parlato con Michele Apa, Senior Manager Solutions Engineer di Vmware, e con Rafffaele Gigantino, Country Manager Vmware Italia.

Michele Apa ci ha ricordato che la missione della società americana è semplificare le tecnologie, che nel tempo si fanno sempre più complesse.

Peraltro, è una complessità amplificata dalla quantità di dati che negli ultimi anni è letteralmente esplosa. Gestirne una mole così rilevante non è semplice, ma al tempo stesso è indispensabile e offre vantaggi competitivi .

Si rende quindi necessaria l’adozione di soluzioni adatte allo scopo, e Vmware è in prima linea anche in questo ambito.

Tanzu segna di fatto l’ingresso dalla porta principale di Vmware nell’ambito dello sviluppo software e di Kubernetes, e in questa ottica va vista l’acquisizione di Pivotal.

Kubernetes ricopre un ruolo essenziale per Vmware, grazie alla versione beta di Project Pacific (che è già in testing su un gruppo limitato di clienti).

La presenza di Project Pacific all’interno di vSphere consente di estendere la piattaforma di sviluppo in ambito multi-cloud, con l’aggiunto delle capacità di governance di Tanzu; un importante aumento di sicurezza e scalabilità fanno della reingegnerizzazione di vSphere

Con riferimento alla realtà italiana, l’interesse per le proposte Vmware è organico rispetto alla situazione globale. Un importante lavoro di evangelizzazione viene svolto nei confronti dei prospect, e in questo i system integrator svolgono un ruolo essenziale nel mettere in campo tutte le competenze specifiche per meglio integrare le tecnologie nella specifica realtà della azienda cliente.

Non solo: il sistema di partner gioca un ruolo determinante nei confronti delle organizzazioni, avendo già creato un solido rapporto fiduciario, che rende più semplice l’adozione di tecnologie che impattano in maniera rilevante sulla attività quotidiana.

L’attività formativa di Vmware, sul territorio italiano, è particolarmente attiva e si concretizza in operazioni cime Orizzonte Digitale.

Le tecnologie Sd-Wan e 5G si abiliteranno a vicenda, amplificando le potenzialità di connettività e di Intrisic Security, che viene distribuita sugli hypervisor. In questo modo si annullano gli effetti sulle performance, garantendo una sicurezza di livello best in class.

Il 5G consentirà a Vmware di aumentare la presenza sul mercato, e non a caso il rapporto con le telco è particolarmente approfondito: nei prossimi anni è facile prevedere ampi spazi di crescita in questo segmento.

L’acquisizione di Carbon Black, conclusa a metà ottobre, ha apportato una robusta componente antivirus alle soluzioni di security di Vmware. L’integrazione in vSphere rendere quest’ultima de facto “security by design”.

Il mondo Pmi è presente nei pensieri di Vmware, e attraverso i cloud service provider una piccola o media impresa può avviare un percorso verso il cloud senza dover passare tramite una ingegnerizzazione delle proprie applicazioni.

Gigantino ha voluto sottolineare la filosofia di Vmware: dare ai clienti il massimo della scelta possibile. È questa la miglior traduzione possibile del tradizionale motto “any device, any application, any cloud”

L’importanza della customer experience è determinante per il successo di una organizzazione. In questa chiave vanno lette le acquisizioni di Bitnami e Pivotal.

Far si che le applicazioni siano in grado di girare su qualsiasi cloud, e gestite in modo efficiente, è un chiaro vantaggio competitivo per le aziende clienti.

D’altronde, la gestione delle complessità fa parte del DNA di Vmware, e per questo gli investimenti in ricerca e sviluppo ed acquisizioni sono ai vertici del mercato.

A novel NFKBIA variant substituting serine 36 of IκBα causes immunodeficiency with warts, bronchiectasis and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis in the absence of ectodermal dysplasia.

Clin Immunol. 2019 Nov 01;:108269

Authors: Sogkas G, Adriawan IR, Ringshausen FC, Baumann U, Schröder C, Klemann C, von Hardenberg S, Schmidt G, Bernd A, Jablonka A, Ernst D, Schmidt RE, Atschekzei F

Abstract
Genetic studies have led to identification of an increasing number of monogenic primary immunodeficiency disorders. Monoallelic pathogenic gain-of-function (GOF) variants in NFKBIA, the gene encoding IκBα, result in an immunodeficiency disorder, typically accompanied by anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (EDA). So far, 14 patients with immunodeficiency due to NFKBIA GOF mutations have been reported. In this study we report three patients from the same family with immunodeficiency, presenting with recurrent respiratory tract infections, bronchiectasis and viral skin conditions due to a novel pathogenic NFKBIA variant (c.106 T > G, p.Ser36Ala), which results in reduced IκBα degradation. Immunological investigations revealed inadequate antibody responses against vaccine antigens, despite hypergammaglobulinemia. Interestingly, none of the studied patients displayed features of EDA. Therefore, missense NFKBIA variants substituting serine 36 of IκBα, differ from the rest of pathogenic GOF NFKBIA variants in that they cause combined immunodeficiency, even in the absence of EDA.

Biological depletion of neutrophils attenuates pro-inflammatory markers and the development of the psoriatic phenotype in a murine model of psoriasis.

Clin Immunol. 2019 Oct 30;:108294

Authors: Havnaer A, Lee HH, Carmichael DJ, Martinez LR, Han G

Abstract
Although neutrophils are considered a histologic hallmark of psoriasis, their pathophysiologic role in psoriasis remains unclear. We characterized the effects of neutrophil depletion via injection of monoclonal antibody 1A8 on the development of imiquimod (IMQ)-induced psoriatic lesions in a murine model. Lesions were followed with photographs and histologic analysis, revealing reduced psoriasiform scale and epidermal hyperplasia in neutrophil-depleted. ELISA and flow cytometry were used to determine relative levels of cytokines and immune cells. Compared to controls, IMQ-treated neutropenic mice had significantly lower levels of macrophages in tissue samples (P < .05) and displayed significantly lower numbers of CD4+ T-cells (P < .05). Neutropenic animals exhibited lower levels of TNF-α, IFN-γ, and IL-1β than controls (P < .05). These results show that neutropenia reduces the development of psoriasiform skin lesions and substantially decreases infiltration of pro-inflammatory cytokines and immune cells to IMQ-induced cutaneous lesions, suggesting an active role of neutrophils in maintaining inflammation in psoriasis.

#Cleantech and #Climate Change #Podcast interview with Graciela Chichilnisky, Co-author of REVERSING CLIMATE CHANGE, @Fridays4future

A Quest for a Carbon Revolution



Point Roberts WA, Delta BC, November 1, 2019 – Investorideas.com, a global news source and leading investor resource issues a special edition of its Cleantech and Climate Change podcast, talking to well-known thought leaders and management of publicly traded about today's problems and solutions for the future.

Today’s podcast features an exclusive interview with renowned economist Graciela Chichilnisky, co-author of the forthcoming book REVERSING CLIMATE CHANGE (World Scientific Publishing, December 2019).

Chichilnisky also talks about her company, Global Thermostat and its “direct air capture" technology that removes CO2 from the atmosphere; how it works and its current status. This technology could potentially play a role in a carbon revolution. Chichilnisky believes economics and climate change need to go hand-in-hand.

CO2 removed from the air will not only potentially reverse climate change but can become the main feedstock of economic growth, replacing petroleum.

A fair global economic playing field and a reversal of climate change; now that is a revolution!

Could we have a revived gold and silver era?

 Cache   

One can hope that the predicted pending implosion of the world currencies and monetary system will create a flight to gold and silver which, if SA plays its cards right, should reinvigorate our mining industry. Predictions of the gold and silver prices rising by multiples emanate from their obvious roles as a safe havens more than as a base for currencies, although that remains an option. No one really can predict the future monetary model. The world has never had the massive issuing of currency by central banks, politely known as Quantative Easing (QE), and negative interest rates before, so there are no precedents. There is an odd and worrying counter play between deflation and hyper-inflation looming.

The number of views as to what this all means and what the results will be are as diverse as those making predictions. Suffice it to say that overriding aspect remains undisputed: the massive debt burden that the global governments and the public are carrying, effectively debiting the credit cards of the next generation. QE has in effect just kicked the can down the road and is postponing the pain of reset that should have occurred after the 2008 crash. The eventual reset would likely mean the collapse of much of the central banking system and debt write-off .

Let’s hope we can get the gold and silver mining industry going again along the lines of its former glory. Would mechanised methods be used, and can we create a sustainable all-stakeholder structure that includes safe mining practices, well rewarded Miners, decent living conditions, treated mine water, associated and supported industries such as agriculture and localised manufacture, and cooperative unions?

Studying the current developments by Sibanye Gold gives one a real level of confidence that this can be achieved. If Sibanye ‘s model can be successful at the current gold price, imagine the opportunities if the price goes near the projections of US$ 5000 per oz and silver maintains its price ratio with gold.

Clearly this is not in the Treasury plans to get this growth going in SA, but it could emerge by default as a windfall from the stressed global economy. But assuming this works, then we must ensure that it becomes the enabler for both the traditional and new downstream industries that have always been the hallmark of the SA mining industry.

A big challenge is the investment required to revamp the mines under close-out or care. Can the vast resources of retained funds by investment funds and industry be a source of this financing? After all mining feeds the very industries that would be involved.

The reverse flow of skilled and experienced engineering resources referred to in last month’s leader article continues and is witnessed daily. Thee is still no evidence of serious activity in the National Development Plan (NDP) and the 19 Strategic Infrastructure Projects (SIPs). If the Minister and the group from the private sector really want to do something effective, surely this must be one of the growth goals? There are so many competent resources on the market that one would wish to see actively involved in managing the SIPs rather than scouring the industry for new jobs.

With the encouraging shift in the political balance following the municipal elections, will we see some active realisation by government that their neglect of the economy becomes evident to them?


          

Will gold shine again?

 Cache   

Studying the current state of the world economy following, amongst other effects, the end of the commodity cycle, there is a growing concern that the worlds’ currencies, which have since 1913 been effectively fiat based (ie no value backing such as gold), will eventually collapse. Historically currencies do this. The US Dollar as the world’s reserve currency might remain the strongest of the lot until there is the impact of deflation and hyper-inflation resulting from the quantitative easing with fiat currency.

Ultimately, it is all a result of the debt based currency systems which have been manipulated to create the biggest debt bubble in the history of money and currencies. Anyone interested in the impact this is having on world trade should look up the Baltic Dry Index records. It is a very interesting metric that measures the shipping movements between continents. It is at the lowest index level in its history.

Out of most misfortune one hopes for the glimmer of positivity. In the current economic saga is the possibility that there will be a replacement world reserve currency that would be based on a value backing, and the most obvious is gold. Silver may have its role as well.

Some protagonists of this are predicting a massive hike in the gold price. Two interesting issues are evident. China is buying large quantities of gold, and the USA banking system and Fed are doing their best to suppress the price. Gold is no longer following the commodities index and going its own way.

SA does not have any perceptible agenda on the table, let alone observable action, to get economic growth going to uplift the rate of wealth generation and make an impact on the rating agencies. Would the rise in the gold price to such an extent happen such that it provides acceptable margins above the cost of recovery in a stable manner and be an option to get our gold mines going as before so as to help a bit?

It is of concern that we are losing, and have lost, a significant number of our experienced resources including Mining Engineers who have in the past managed our gold mining industry. We see them leaving the industry: retiring, leaving the country or moving in to other careers. From our historic role as number one we are way down now, not sure where.

For one hundred years SA has effectively grown its economy based on mining and commodities. The investment into that has almost ceased. Have we learnt anything from history that should have prepared us for the end of that boom, and undertaken development of other industries?

The NDP has proven to be stillborn and the excitement created in 2012 on the need to train up skilled resources to enable us to build the SIPs has waned into a dilemma that we now have surplus skills and no projects. It appears we have no funding for them now.

Did anyone have any confidence in the budget speech and its rhetoric? I did not. If I had not known we have a serious economic recessionary environment on our hands, I could have believed it was a business-as-usual budget. Do you really believe that government will cut back on the blue label and the top of the range Mercs? Please, where is the real strategy to create growth?

Terminator: Dark Fate

 Cache   










Director Tim Miller’s Terminator: Dark Fate marks a fitting conclusion (hopefully) to the 35-year-old franchise.

This time around, an enhanced human (Mackenzie Davis) is sent back from the future to protect a young Hispanic woman (Natalia Reyes), who is being marked for assassination by a new liquid terminator (Diego Boneta) because of whom she will become as a force for humankind.

The script by David S. Goyer from the story group including him, James Cameron, Charles H. Eglee and Josh Friedman, is first rate, bringing in the original terminator Arnold Shwarzenegger and the original would-be victim Linda Hamilton.

Terminator: Dark Fate is a cut above the subsequent Terminator films.  I give it a 3.9 out of 5.

Apparition and Angst: Stories of the Strange in Late Nineteenth Century China

 Cache   

This study offers the first systematic textual analyses and translations of classical-language anomaly accounts, or the so-called “new tales of the extraordinary”, published by China’s first modern newspaper house Shenbaoguan in the latter half of the nineteenth century, during which time China underwent incessant social and political turmoil. The anomaly accounts examined both pay homage to the indigenous zhiguai, or “tales of the strange” tradition, and are clearly influenced by the classical tale masterpieces from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. They contain direct mentions of the progress of the Nian and the Taiping Rebellions, vivid representations of encounters with the rebels, and sharp commentaries on the aftermaths of war. Their authors were all survivors of these bloody civil wars themselves. This project taps into this body of commercially successful yet critically neglected narratives to study how nineteenth-century literati storytellers appropriated an ancient tradition to provide unique depictions of human suffering as well as moral, political and ethnical contestations during this war-ridden chapter of China’s early modernity. This study makes five thematic inquiries. Chapter 1 investigates the use of gender tropes as socio-political critiques. Women are exalted as ethical paragons, betraying the male authors’ frustration over their collective failure to maintain order and to be victorious in battles. The growing representations of female sexuality, homosexuality, and transgenderism suggest an updated literary genre that affords more latitude for moral ambiguity. Chapter 2 unpacks the self-reflective caricatures of impoverished and disillusioned Confucian scholars: the scholar’s fall from the pedestal is hyperbolically accentuated by the elevation of the despicable members of the society, suggesting a rapidly declining faith in the shi class’s traditional moral leadership. Chapter 3 explores travel-themed stories that showcase encounters between Han Chinese subjects with frontier ethnic minorities and foreigners. In these cross-country and transnational journeys, distortions of time and space signal a new historical consciousness. Chapter 4 examines the falling out of favor of the scholarly obsession over antiques and the rise of foreign inventions as a new category for material adulation. Chapter 5 discusses how writings of the diseased body serve as a metaphor for the health of the state, and how fiction-writing itself became perceived as a therapeutic practice for the traumatized authors. This study ends with concluding comments and an appendix of fifteen translated tales. Together it argues that these late nineteenth century anomaly accounts emerged not as escapist detours from rationality, but rather a creative expression of resistance to cultural and political hegemony that was characteristic of an incipient literary modernity.


          

The Evolution of Modern Music: Tradition and Innovation in Bartók, Schoenberg, and Stravinsky

 Cache   

Despite their reputations as musical revolutionaries, Béla Bartók, Arnold Schoenberg, and Igor Stravinsky continually asserted that their styles were not revolutionary, but evolutionary. For each composer, stylistic evolution implied a continuation of the musical traditions and techniques they inherited from their predecessors. While much has been written about the innovative—or revolutionary—aspects of these three composers, less has been written about how their styles connected to the classical tradition. This dissertation attempts to capture the evolutionary aspects of the styles of Bartók, Schoenberg, and Stravinsky. In each chapter, I analyze the interaction of innovative and traditional musical structures. Chapter one discusses the interaction of tonal rhythm and hypermeter with atonal triadic structures in the music of Béla Bartók. Chapter two discusses the interaction of tonal textures and forms with atonal pitch structures in Arnold Schoenberg’s music. Chapter three discusses the interaction of tonal musical patterns from the galant era and modern approaches to texture and harmonization in the music of Igor Stravinsky. In addition to the analyses, I also explore the cultural and aesthetic reasons behind the mixture of modern and traditional musical structures.


          

Electron Decoupling with Chirped Microwave Pulses for Magic Angle Spinning Dynamic Nuclear Polarization Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

 Cache   

Dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) is a method of generating hyperpolarization of nuclear spins for nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Coherent, time domain techniques make the possibility of DNP directly to spins of interest at room temperature and higher feasible in magic angle spinning (MAS) NMR, allowing for optimal experimental repetition times to be limited by the T_1 of the electron, rather than a much longer T_1DNP, with excellent resolution. The strong hyperfine couplings that make such direct DNP transfers possible, however, can lead to short nuclear relaxation times that result in broadening of nuclear resonances and reduce sensitivity. This dissertation describes the implementation of electron decoupling, performed by rapidly chirping the irradiating microwave frequency through the electron resonance frequency of the narrow line Trityl Finland radical. The frequency chirps are produced by modulating the accelerating voltage of a frequency agile gyrotron. The voltage modulation is programed into the spectrometer arbitrary waveform generator using MATLAB. The experiments described here were performed both at a common DNP temperature of 90 K and with the first MAS experiments performed below 6 K. Experiments were performed using both direct polarization of the nuclei from the electrons, and with indirect polarization using cross polarization. Electron decoupling both narrows nuclear resonances and improves their integrated area. A method for performing analytical powder averaging for fast simulations of electron detected MAS DNP experiments is also described, anticipating the incorporation of electron detection into magnetic resonance experiments under ultra-fast MAS for excellent sensitivity. The simulations are performed using a home written PYTHON code.


          

Determining the Genetic Contributions of the Williams Syndrome Critical Region to Behavior Using Mouse Models and Human Genetics

 Cache   

Williams syndrome is a neurodevelopmental model caused by the deletion of 26-28 genes on chr7q11.23. The loss of these genes affects multiple organ systems resulting in severe cardiovascular disease, craniofacial dysmorphology, intellectual impairment, a specific Williams syndrome cognitive profile made up of deficits in visual-spatial processing with preserved language skills, and a characteristic hypersocial personality. The reciprocal duplication occurs at a lower frequency and manifests with diametric phenotypes to the deletion. This suggests that this locus harbors dosage sensitive genes that play a role in neurodevelopment. Large efforts have been taken to identify which genes are responsible for causing the different aspects of the disorder. Only the cardiovascular phenotype has been linked to the hemizgosity of the ELN gene. In order to incorporate the complexity of genetic contributions to complex traits, we synthesize genetic and behavioral analyses in both humans and mouse models. We performed whole exome sequencing on 85 individuals with Williams syndrome to test the hypothesis that genetic variation on the remaining chr7q11.23 allele contributes to variation in the social phenotype. We show that the social phenotype consists of deficits in several aspects of social behavior, but social motivation is preserved in Williams syndrome. Whole exome sequencing revealed that there is little common variation contribution to the variability of the social phenotype but did suggest involvement of SNPs in the BAZ1B and GTF2IRD1 genes. Using mouse models, we generated three new mouse lines to test the hypothesis that two genes in the syntenic region, Gtf2i and Gtf2ird1, share overlapping DNA targets and both contribute to overlapping behavioral phenotypes suggesting an oligogenic contribution of these genes to phenotypes relevant to WS. Finally, we show that loss of function mutations in both Gtf2i and Gtf2ird1 are not sufficient to reproduce the full phenotype that is produced by deleting the entire syntenic Williams syndrome critical region in mice. Taken together these data suggest an oligogenic pattern of contribution to the phenotypes seen in WS.


          

Index Theory for Toeplitz Operators on Algebraic Spaces

 Cache   

This dissertation is about the abstract Toeplitz operators obtained by compressing the multishifts of the usual Hilbert spaces of analytic functions onto co-invariant subspaces generated by polynomial functions. These operators were introduced by Arveson in regard to his multivariate dilation theory for spherical contractions. The main technical issue here is essential normality, addressed in Arveson's conjecture. If this conjecture holds true then the fundamental tuple of Toeplitz operators associated to a polynomial ideal $I$ can be thought as noncommutative coordinate functions on the variety defined by $I$ intersected with the boundary of the unit ball. This interpretation suggests operator-theoretic techniques to study certain algebraic spaces. More specifically, we are interested in Douglas' index problem. In the special case of monomial ideals we give a new proof for Arveson's essential normality conjecture, also answer Douglas' index problem. Our main construction is a certain resolution (in the sense of homological algebra) of Hilbert modules. Finally, Thinking of the fundamental tuple of Toeplitz operators as noncommutative coordinate functions, we start applying them to study the isolated singularities of algebraic hypersurfaces. The main extra operator-theoretic ingredient here is a unitary operator, the holonomy of a certain Gauss-Manin connection induced by the monodromy of the singularity. We want to understand how this unitary operator interacts with the Toeplitz operators. This study could lead to an analytic way for detecting exotic smooth structures on odd-dimensional spheres.


          

Brain Blood Flow and Metabolism: Variable Relationships in Altered Metabolic States

 Cache   

Brain metabolism is usually thought of in terms of energy production. Decades of research has shown that the brain derives the majority of its energy from the oxidative phosphorylation of glucose transported from the blood into the brain. Because of this, cerebral blood flow (CBF), the cerebral metabolic rate of glucose consumption (CMRglc), and the cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen consumption (CMRO2) generally are tightly coupled. Indeed, the coupling between CBF, CMRglc, and CMRO2 is robust enough such that many investigators believe them to be equivalent measures of brain activity. Nevertheless, research over the last few decades has shown that cerebral metabolic coupling is not stoichiometrically exact. Perhaps the best example of metabolic uncoupling occurs during focal increases in brain activity. Sensory stimulation, for instance, increases CBF and CMRglc to a much greater extent than CMRO2. This response results in: 1) an increase in nonoxidative glucose consumption, and 2) an increase in oxygenated blood in the brain’s vasculature, the phenomenon which underlies blood oxygen dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Importantly, metabolic uncoupling is not restricted to periods of increased neural activity. The primary goal of this thesis is to investigate other examples of uncoupling between CBF, CMRglc, and CMRO2. I performed four separate studies that all examine metabolic uncoupling from a different perspective. In the first study, I performed a meta-analysis of published papers to show that at rest, nearly 10% of the brain’s glucose consumption uses nonoxidative pathways that do not end in lactate efflux. If CMRglc and CMRO2 were completely coupled, then one would not expect to find any nonoxidative glucose consumption (NOglc). The second study expands upon the first by showing that there are regional differences in the amount of glucose consumed using nonoxidative pathways. In some brain regions, such as the precuneus and medial prefrontal cortex, NOglc accounts for nearly 20% of resting CMRglc. Conversely, there does not appear to by any NOglc in the cerebellum. The aim of the remaining two studies was to determine if changes in blood glucose concentration produce similar changes in CBF, CMRglc, and CMRO2. Although multiple studies have reported that hypoglycemia focally increases CBF in humans, it is not clear how it impacts regional CMRglc. Therefore, I examined both regional CBF and regional CMRglc during moderate hypoglycemia. Although hypoglycemia decreased CMRglc in every region of the brain, it only increased CBF significantly in the globus pallidus. This suggests that CBF does not increase during hypoglycemia to prevent a fall in CMRglc. Next, I examined regional changes in brain metabolism during hyperglycemia. Previous studies have established that acute hyperglycemia alters the topography of cerebral glucose metabolism. However, the impact of hyperglycemia on regional CBF and CMRO2 has not yet been determined. Therefore, I examined CBF, CMRglc, and CMRO2 in several brain regions during hyperglycemia. Hyperglycemia did not change CBF or CMRO2 in any brain region. However, hyperglycemia did increase CMRglc in white matter and in the brain stem by over 30%. CMRglc was not altered by hyperglycemia in any other region. Therefore, hyperglycemia appears to selectively increase NOglc in the brain stem and white matter. Taken together, the four studies that make up this thesis show that metabolic uncoupling, in particular NOglc, is an important part of brain metabolism. These results also highlight the need for future studies that can elucidate the mechanisms behind uncoupling in both health and disease.


          

Decoupling Information and Connectivity via Information-Centric Transport

 Cache   

The power of Information-Centric Networking architectures (ICNs) lies in their abstraction for communication --- the request for named data. This abstraction was popularized by the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) as an application-layer abstraction, and was extended by ICNs to also serve as their network-layer abstraction. In recent years, network mechanisms for ICNs, such as scalable name-based forwarding, named-data routing and in-network caching, have been widely explored and researched. However, to the best of our knowledge, the impact of this network abstraction on ICN applications has not been explored or well understood. The motivation of this dissertation is to address this research gap. Presumably, shifting from the IP's channel abstraction, in which two endpoints must establish a channel to communicate, to the request for named data abstraction in ICNs, should simplify application mechanisms. This is not only because those mechanisms are no longer required to translate named-based requests to addresses of endpoints, but mainly because application mechanisms are no longer coupled with the connectivity characteristics of the channel. Hence, applications do not need to worry if there is a synchronous end-to-end path between two endpoints, or if a device along the path switches between concurrent interfaces for communication. Therefore, ICN architectures present a new and powerful promise to applications --- the freedom to stay in the information plane decoupled from connectivity. This dissertation shows that despite this powerful promise, the information and connectivity planes are presently coupled in today's incarnations of leading ICNs by a core architectural component, the forwarding strategy. Therefore, this dissertation defines the role of forwarding strategies, and it introduces Information-Centric Transport (ICT) as a new architectural component that application developers can rely on if they want their application to be decoupled from connectivity. When discussing the role of ICT, we explain the importance of in-network transport mechanisms in ICNs, and we explore how those mechanisms can be scalable when generalized to provide broadly-applicable application needs. To illustrate our contribution concretely, we present three group communication abstractions that can evolve into ICTs: 1) Data synchronization of named data. This abstraction supports applications that want to maintain data consistency over time of a group's shared dataset. 2) Push-like notifications for the latest named data. This abstraction supports applications that want to quickly notify and be notified about the latest content that was produced by a member(s) in the group. And 3) distributed named data fetching when the content is partitioned. This abstraction supports applications that their named data is partitioned and distributed in the group, and the names of content items in a partition cannot be generalized and hierarchically represented using one partition name. For each ICT, we provide examples of known applications that can use it, we discuss different mechanisms for implementation, and we evaluate selected implementations. We show how by relying on an ICT instead of a forwarding strategy, the tested applications can maintain sustainable communication in connectivities where IP tools fail or do not work well.


          

Early exposure to sounds can address hypersensitivity to noise associated with Fragile X Syndrome

 Cache   
A research team has found exposure to sound -- not sound reduction -- during early development of mice engineered to have Fragile X Syndrome, or FXS, restores molecular, cellular, and functional properties in the auditory cortex, the area of the brain that processes sounds. The results suggest that facilitating exposure to sounds during early age can restore communication between brain cells altered by the gene mutation that leads to FXS.

Double the challenge

The added challenge is that by joining the Grenadiers you become one of the elite who combine the duty of The Queen's personal bodyguard with being a professional Infantry soldier employable anywhere in the world.

A Profession

Today's British Army is more than a job. It's a profession. The Grenadiers know that they have to compete with other employers for the best men in the country.

Times have changed. Yes, standards are still high and yes, it can be tough, but today as a Grenadier you have to combine the traditional skills of an Infantry Soldier with the new skills required of many professionals in the 21st century. 

Training to be a Grenadier Guardsman

The training to become a grenadier Guardsman is undertaken in two distinct phases at Catterick in North Yorkshire. All aspects of the training courses are progressive, starting out at a basic level whilst you, as a recruit, will build your confidence, then become more challenged as your skills and knowledge increase:

PHASE ONE TRAINING

The course lasts for 12 weeks, and as a teaching course, means that you are not expected to know everything when you join. The aim of the course is to turn you, a civilian, into a soldier able to protect yourself and carry out all basic military skills.

THE PURSUIT OF FITNESS

The Army places physical fitness high on its list of priorities. Phase One training is progressive and with commitment, you will achieve the level of fitness required to finish the course.

In the first week, you complete a series of physical tests; sit ups, press ups, lifting weights and a mile and a half run.

To give a guide for how fit entrants need to be when starting, the run must be completed in less than eleven and a half minutes.

It is an impressive fact that, at the end of the course, you are able to march six miles carrying 35 pounds and then do a days work!

THE LESSONS AND TRAINING

The Phase One training course consists of indoor and outdoor lessons, each covering a great variety of subjects and skills.

INDOOR LESSONS

During the twelve week course, you will cover a lot of ground in the form of lessons and skills development. These range from survival on the battlefield to how to wear your uniform correctly. The majority of these lessons are taught by the platoon staff. Some of the lessons taught in the classroom include:

 

  • Map Reading
  • Rifle Lesson
  • Nuclear, biological and chemical survival
  • Moral understanding
  • Equal opportunities
  • First Aid
  • Battlefield Skills
  • Health and hygiene

OUTDOOR

Whilst most topics are introduced in the classroom, you are training for the Army and must be able to put what has been taught into practice outside, on training areas, in any weather conditions. For this reason, a large amount of instruction takes place outside. Some of the topics covered in outdoor lessons include:

 
  • Ranges (shooting)
  • Map reading
  • Foot drill and arms drill
  • Fire and movement
  • March and shoot
  • Platoon harbour drills
  • Patrolling skills
  • Movement at night
  • Adventurous training

You are twice the man
in the
Grenadier Guards!

After eight weeks of the Phase One training course, you undertake a week of 'adventurous training'. these activities are varied and may include: canoeing, rock-climbing, abseiling, swimming, mountain biking and quad biking, to name a few.

The adventurous training week is popular with both staff and recruits as it is a lot of fun. Coming almost halfway through the course, it's a welcome change from military training and is challenging, but in a different way. The atmosphere is more relaxed and provides an opportunity to get to know the training staff in a less formal atmosphere.

PHASE TWO TRAINING

Phase Two training will make you, a soldier, into an infantryman.

DISCIPLINE

Self-discipline is vital in the Army. This is certainly a strength that you will need to develop and use in order to complete Phase One training and progress to Phase Two. If you are prepared to put in the effort, the staff will teach you all you need to know to pass the course.

TRANING FOR THE REGIMENT IN CATTERICK

The Combat Infantryman's Course is the framework upon which all Regular Infantry training is based. It equips you with special skills needed to operate in a rifle platoon. Successful completion of the Combat Infantryman's Course marks the end of your initial Army training.

As a qualified combat infantryman you will then possess the fitness, knowledge and skills allowing you to join a battalion ready to deploy on operational tours. You will have gained an excellent foundation upon which to learn other specialist infantry skills such as driver, Milan missile operator, mortar man or radio operator. The training at Catterick also earns credit towards a national vocational qualification, Level 2.

SERVING WITH THE REGIMENT IN NIJMEGAN COMPANY

The Company enjoys the independence of its own transport, physical training instructors, snipers and pioneers. The Company is 108 strong and its role is to assist in ceremonial duties and military training.

THE HISTORY OF NIJMEGAN COMPANY

The Company was formed in 1994, from the Second Battalion Grenadier Guards and is based, at present, in London. It is ready for deployment anywhere in the world and engages in an overseas exercise once or twice a year.

BECOMING A GRENADIER GUARDSMAN

The Grenadier Guards becomes family and friends for all new Guardsmen and this settling in takes time. Guidance is given on the role and conduct of a Guardsman and the encouragement to develop the appropriate manner with which Grenadiers carry out all tasks.

Further training is given in diverse climates from deserts to Artic conditions, to build on the skills and fitness achieved during the first phases of training. Training tests the physical fitness already achieved and extends it to a level that equips a Guardsman to be fit at all times.

VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE FOR A GRENADIER GUARDSMAN

Life in the Regiment is taken at a more measured pace than Phase One and Two training and whilst new arrivals are still given a set programme and specific tasks to complete, they usually find that they have a little more time to complete them. The outline below gives an idea of the type of day that a Grenadier Guardsman can expect.

A DAY IN THE LIFE

The day can vary from live firing on Salisbury Plain to learning how to survive in the jungles of Belize. Your day may well include the following:

 
  • Rehearsals for a State Visit
  • Rugby, tennis, volleyball
  • Night attack rehearsals in the Kenyan Bush
  • Priming grenades and loading magazines
  • Nights out in London
 
The over-riding theme of life as a Grenadier Guardsman is variety. An enthusiastic approach and willingness to adapt to change and the unexpected are essential. All in all, life in the Grenadier Guards is never dull and promises a rewarding and stimulating future for all who can meet its challenges.

Kadri Simson: Tallinn-Helsingi tunnel pakub huvi kogu maailmale

 Cache   
Majandus- ja taristuminister Kadri Simson viibib sel nädalal visiidil Los Angeleses ning osaleb kõrgetasemelisel konverentsil "LA CoMotion: The Global Laboratory of Future Mobility", kus minister tutvustab Eesti ühistranspordisüsteemi ning innovatiivseid transpordilahendusi. Lisaks Eesti lahenduste tutvustamisele on ministril Los Angeleses mitmeid kohtumisi. Kohtumisel Virgin Hyperloop-One'i kaasasutaja ja CTO Josh Giegeli ning nende uue CEO Jay Walderiga arutati Hyperloopi projekti hetkeseisu ning võimalust kasutada antud lahendust ka võimaliku Tallinn-Helsingi tunneli juures. „Tallinna ja Helsingi vaheline tunnel ei paku huvi ainult Euroopas. Tegemist oleks maailma pikima veealuse tunneliga ning pakub huvi üle kogu maailma. Hyperloopi projekt on järjest arenemas ning seda tuleb kindlasti kaaluda ka Tallinn-Helsingi vahelise tunneliprojektiga edasi liikudes. Kohtumisel Hyperloop-One’i juhtidega selgus, et just meie visiit oli uue CEO Jay Walderi esimeseks ametlikuks kohtumiseks. Eesti on uutest transpordilahendustest huvitatud ja hyperloop on kindlasti üks neist projektidest, millel silma peal hoida,“ rääkis Simson. Majandusminister kohtus ka World Trade Center Los Angelesi presidendi Stephen Cheungiga, kellega arutati, kuidas arendada Los Angelese ja Eesti ettevõtjate vahelist koostööd. „Los Angeles on peamiselt tuntud maailma filmitööstuse südamena, kuid tegemist on ka ühe suurima majandusega piirkonnaga kogu maailmas. Siin on Ameerika suurim sadam ja meeletu arengupotentsiaal ja innovatsioon erinevates majandusharudes. Kohtumisel World Trade Centeri juhiga arutasimegi, kuidas Eesti ettevõtjatele siinsel turul veelgi rohkem uksi avada. Hea näide Eesti ettevõttest, kes on siinsel turul jala maha saanud ja on tegemas tõelist läbilööki, on Digital Sputnik, kes pakub nii riist- kui ka tarkvaraplatvormi filminduses kasutatavatele LED valgustitele ning ettevõte mängib võtmerolli praegu Hollywoodis juurutatavates VR/AR süsteemides. Digital Sputniku loetelu filmidest, kus on kasutatud just nende lahendusi, on juba täna väga muljetavaldav,“ mainis ka Digital Sputniku juhtidega kohtunud majandusminister Kadri Simson. Lisaks ettevõtjatega kohtumisele väisas minister ka Eesti kogukonda ning külastas Soome peakonsulit Los Angeleses. Simsoni sõnul on Eesti valitsus otsustanud rajada Ameerika läänerannikule konsulaadi, kuid selle asukoht on veel otsustamisel. „Los Angeleses on 66 konsulaati ja suur hulk aukonsuleid. Soome peakonsul tervitas Eesti otsust rajada läänerannikule Eesti konsulaat ja julgustas meid valima just Los Angelest, mis on kahtlemata üks võimalus. Siin on ka väga aktiivne Eesti kogukond,“ lõpetas Simson.

FinEst Link uuring: Tallinna-Helsingi tunnel oleks maailma pikim raudteetunnel

 Cache   
Täna Tallinnas esitletud FinEst Link projekti uuringutu hinnangul on ette näha kahe linna vahelise kauba- ja reisijateveo mahu kahekordistumist või isegi kolmekordistumist järgmise 30 aasta jooksul. Helsingi-Tallinna tunneli maa-aluse osa pikkus on 103 kilomeetrit, mis oleks ühtlasi ka maailma pikim merealune raudteetunnel. Projektis valminud kalkulatsioonid näitavad, et umbes 12 miljonit reisijat kasutaks kahe riigi vahel reisimiseks rongi ja 11 miljonit reisijat reisiks jätkuvalt laevaga, mis teeks kogureisijate arvuks 2050. aastal 23 miljonit. Praegu reisib kahe riigi vahel umbes 9 miljonit reisijat aastas. „Tuleb meeles pidada, et selle uuringu ülesanne oli prognoosida plaanitava tunneli tõenäolist toimimist ja maksumust, kuid arusaadavalt on paljudes aspektides veel väga palju määramatust ning garantiisid selle uuringu tulemused ei anna. Pigem on tegu tulevikuvisiooniga, mis tugineb parimale olemasolevale teadmisele,“ selgitas Majandus- ja kommunikatsiooniministeeriumi FinEst Link projekti koordinaator Eva Killar. FinEst Link projekti tasuvusuuringu hinnangul toob merealune raudteetunnel kaubavedudele märgatava ajalise ja rahalise kokkuhoiu ning omab tõsist kasvupotentsiaali. Hinnanguliselt veetakse 2050. aastal nii raudteetunnelis kui ka parvlaevadel 4,2 miljonit tonni kaupa, mis teeb aastaseks kaubamahuks kokku 8,4 miljonit tonni. Praegu veetakse Helsingi ja Tallinna vahel umbes 3,8 miljonit tonni kaupa aastas. Poole tunni ja 18 euroga Tallinnast Helsingisse   FinEst Link projekti tasuvusanalüüsis esitati rongide opereerimismudelit, kus tipptunnil sõidaksid rongid 20-minutilise graafiku kiirusega 200km/h. Reisiaeg oleks 30 minutit ning üksikpileti hind 18 eurot. Perioodipileti ostjatele on ühe reisi hinnaks arvestatud 15 eurot. Päevas sõidaks kahe linna vahel umbes 40 reisirongi. Autoreisirong, veoautorong ning kaubarongid sõidaksid umbes 30 korda päevas ja nende rongide kiiruseks oleks 120-160 km/h. FinEst Link projekti lõppraportis välja pakutud tunnelilahenduse kohaselt oleks Tallinna ja Helsingi vahele kõige sobivam rajada kaks raudteetunnelit, milles kummaski oleks üks rööpapaar ning lisaks sellele veel kolmas tunnel, mis täidaks teenindustunneli ülesannet. Raudteetunnel ühendaks lennujaamu   Uuringus selgitati välja tunneli võimalik asukoht koos peatuste, terminalide ja depoodega. Soome poolele on planeeritud kolm peatust reisijatele: Helsingi kesklinn, Pasila ja Helsingi-Vantaa lennujaam. Terminalid ja depood võiksid asuda lennujaama mürapiirkonnas ning teenindaksid kogu Soome kaubaliiklust. Tunnel seoks kavandatud 4. ringteed (Kehä 4) ja ülejäänud teedevõrku, logistilisi terminale ja Hanko-Hyvinkää raudteed, luues hästitoimiva ühenduse ülejäänud Soomega. Tallinnas on peatus planeeritud Ülemistele, mis on ühtlasi ka kiirelt kasvav majanduskeskkond veidi rohkem kui kolme kilomeetri kaugusel Tallinna vanalinnast. Peatuskoha vahetus läheduses asub Tallinna lennujaam ning äsja avatud trammiliin ühendab piirkonda kesklinnaga. Tunneli kaubaterminalid ja depood asuksid lennujaama mürapiirkonnas logistikaparkide vahetus läheduses. Kaubavedude jaoks on planeeritud tunnel ühendada ka Muuga sadamaga, mis on suurim kaubasadam Eestis. Tunnelis kulgev raudtee on planeeritud Euroopa rööpmelaiusega (1435mm), kuid kui kavandatakse ühendus ka Helsingi lennujaama liiniga, varustataks tunnel kahte erinevat mõõtu raudteega: Euroopa standardile vastava ning Soome rööpmelaiusega (1524mm). FinEst Link projekti raames analüüsiti traditsioonilise raudteetunneli majanduslikku tasuvust ning tehnilisi lahendusi, kuid samas paluti ka uute tehnoloogiate arendajatel oma alternatiivseid ideid esitada. Oma lahendused pakkusid kõik maailma suurimad uute tehnoloogiate lahenduste loojad nagu Virgin Hyperloop One, FinEst Bay (Peter Vesterbackaga eesotsas), SwissRapid (Maglev) ning ka Eesti oma innovaatilised ideed nagu Ankrutunnel ning AL Engineering. Neid lahendusi esitleti täna ka Tallinnas toimunud konverentsil. FinEst Link tunneliprojekti uuringut tutvustav video: https://www.dropbox.com/s/u4bj9ecwbewtgtc/Finest_Link-animation-FINAL-DRAFT-v2_1.mp4?dl=0 Uuringu kokkuvõte avaldatakse projekti kodulehel http://www.finestlink.fi/et/

Riigi Infokommunikatsiooni Sihtasutus (RIKS) asub koostöös Ericssoniga rajama pilve lahendust Eesti avalikule sektorile

 Cache   
RIKS valis Ericssoni ja tema koostööpartnerid rajama ja haldama Eesti riigi hübriidpilve keskkonda. Valmiv lahendus suurendab riigi e-teenuste digitaalset järjepidevust, käideldavust ja turvalisust. Projekti juhtivpartneriks on Ericsson ja teised koostööpartnerid on EMC, Telia, OpenNode ja Cybernetica ning pilve kasutajateks on avaliku sektori organisatsioonid.   Koostöös luuakse lahendus, mis pakub riigi asutustele DevOps keskkonda. Valmiv lahendus on osa Eesti riigipilve lahendusest, mis võimaldab riigi asutustel paremini maandada IT riske, võtta kasutusele innovaatilisi pilveteenuseid ja suurendada riigi asutuste ressursi kasutamise efektiivsust. „Pilveteenuste tehnoloogiad ja eelkõige hübriidpilve lahendused arenevad väga kiiresti. Riigi Infokommunikatsooni Sihtasutusel on hea meel alustada koostööd juhtivate tehnoloogiaettevõtete konsortsiumiga, mille eesotsas on Ericsson. Usume, et tänu sõlmitud kontsessioonileping on kõik osapooled motiveeritud pakkuma Eesti kodanikele parimaid teenuseid, ühendades juhtivate pilveteenuste pakkujate kõige kaasaegsemad tehnoloogiad,“ sõnas Riigi Infokommunikatsooni Sihtasutuse juht Laur Lemendik. Projekti juhtivpartnerina paigaldab Ericsson riistvara lahendusele Intel Rack Scale Design ehitatud hüperskaala andmekeskuse (Ericsson Hyperscale Datacenter System 8000) koos pilvekeskkonna (Ericsson Cloud Execution Environment), Apcera hübriidpilve ning integratsiooniteenustega. Ericssoni lahendus sisaldab ka Guardtime ajatempli tehnoloogiat Keyless Signature Infrastructure (KSI), mis tagab süsteemide, võrkude ja andmete tervikluse. Lisaks innovatsioonilisele tehnoloogilisele lahendusele on ka unikaalne advokaadibüroo Triniti vahendusel sõlmitud kontsessioonileping RIKSi ja koostööpartnerite vahel. „Tehnoloogiasõbralikud inimesed, proaktiivne IT sektor ja e-arengut toetav poliitika on võimaldanud Eestil areneda maailma üheks arenenumaks e-ühiskonnaks. Seetõttu on siin võimalik IT abil pakkuda elutähtsaid teenused efektiivsemalt, kuid ka õigel taristul on siinkohal oluline osa,“ sõnas Ericssoni tööstuse ja avalike teenuste üksuse juht Charlotta Sund. „See kokkulepe näitab, et Ericssoni omas valdkonnas juhtiv pilveteenuste pakett pakub turvalisust ja skaleeritavust, mis on vajalik muutuste läbiviimiseks ja e-ühiskonna teenuste potentsiaali täielikuks väljaarendamiseks.” Lisainformatsioon: Laur Lemendik, RIKSi juhataja, Laur.Lemendik@riks.ee  /24.08.2016/

A New Parks Policy Threatens to Hurt Portland’s Poorest Residents

 Cache   
by Alex Zielinski

It’s just after 1 pm on a bright, cold Wednesday at Sunnyside Park, and several people in knit caps and down jackets carry pots of coffee and cream of broccoli soup to a picnic table. For dozens of houseless Portlanders who live near the Southeast Portland park, this is the start of the best part of their day: A free, warm lunch with friends after a long night outside.

“This is something I definitely look forward to,” says Jeff Callicrate, taking a slow sip of coffee and turning his back to the biting October wind. “It’s how I stay connected with people. It’s how I stay positive.”

He waves at a bundled couple as they approach the table, where volunteers with the homeless advocacy group Portland Assembly unpack homemade cookies and sandwiches. Nearby, several men chat about their mornings over cups of steaming soup.

“Last night was bitter cold,” Callicrate says. “This makes those nights more bearable.”

Scenes like this one are happening elsewhere across the city, too. Later in the afternoon, more than a hundred people will gather downtown in Director Park for another free meal, this time provided by the group Free Hot Soup. Around the same time, volunteers with Food Not Bombs will dish out free vegan dinners in East Portland’s Montavilla Park, and the next day, volunteers with yet another organization, Night Strike, will meet at Tom McCall Waterfront Park to serve dinner to anyone in need.

In Portland, public parks have become go-to gathering spots for organizations that offer free meals to the city’s poor communities. But the creation of a new park permit that will be required for any group hosting these “social service” gatherings has threatened to limit the ability of these scrappy, volunteer-led organizations to use public spaces to share food with Portlanders in need.

City leaders say the change is meant to help coordinate social services, while still allowing equal access to public parks for all Portlanders, regardless of economic status. But in a city in the throes of a housing crisis—and with diminishing access to affordable food and health care—restricting free services for those in poverty could exacerbate Portland’s inequity issues.

The new Portland Parks and Recreation (PPR) permit requires that any group that uses public parks to host events that support “improved health, safety, and quality of life” must purchase event liability insurance and pay a $137.75 application fee for the permit. (If the group applies for a permit at least 30 days before its planned event, that application fee will be waived.) The permit also restricts the number of social service gatherings in parks, with each Portland park only being allowed to host one per week.

Previously, social service events have been required to apply for a generic event permit from PPR, but that rule was only sporadically enforced. Organizations that serve meals on multiple days in a row at the same parks, like Portland Assembly and Free Hot Soup, say that despite not having permits, they’ve always felt supported, not policed, by Parks staff. At least, they say, until 2018.

According to Portland City Commissioner Amanda Fritz, who served as the Parks Commissioner from 2013 to 2018, the permit is the result of a single conflict at one park. When the city created Director Park in 2009, the public plaza at SW 9th and Park was expected to be financially self-sufficient. The city hoped the permit fees associated with renting the space for private events would cover the general maintenance costs.

Then Free Hot Soup began using the centrally located plaza to serve meals every weekday evening. The group didn’t have a permit.

Fritz says Free Hot Soup’s nightly presence in the small park kept other groups from getting a permit to rent out the space, with those groups also citing fears that Free Hot Soup’s popular gathering would crowd out their private events. Without any revenue coming in from Free Hot Soup, this created a problem.

“Parks depend on revenue for a certain amount of its budget,” says Fritz. “That’s the reality.”

Fritz says Free Hot Soup’s gatherings, which often attracted nearly 200 guests nightly, sometimes left Director Park in disarray, leaving unexpected work for park staff the following morning. Park rangers had also grown tired of having to intervene when groups that had obtained permits for the plaza clashed with Free Hot Soup volunteers about who could use the space.

In August 2018, Fritz was in the process of helping Free Hot Soup find a more permanent, less budget-draining location when Mayor Ted Wheeler decided to redistribute city bureaus among city commissioners. Suddenly, the Parks bureau became Commissioner Nick Fish’s responsibility. Fritz says she briefed Fish on the Free Hot Soup quandary, but notes that at the time, Fish was rightly preoccupied with addressing the PPR’s broader budget shortfalls.

{{image:1}}

Free Hot Soup didn’t hear anything from the Parks bureau for months and continued serving meals in Director Park. Then, in October 2019, the Parks bureau unveiled the social service permit as a citywide solution to the dust-up at Director Park. Unlike Fritz, Fish says the decision had nothing to do with finances.

“Revenue is not the driver here,” says Fish. “The goal was always to reduce barriers to providing these kinds of services, balanced against the need for our parks to be available for all users.”

While he’s grateful that groups like Free Hot Soup are serving “a real need,” Fish says he wants to ensure that all Portlanders have equal access to public parks. That means every group that uses a park needs to follow the same rules.

“It is not an unhealthy thing to require some mutual accountability,” says Fish.

“We’re always trying to improve the way Parks serve the public,” says Todd Lofgren, the deputy director of PPR. Lofgren adds that the new permits will help staff to both better prepare for planned events and refer those needing free meals to planned gatherings at specific parks.

The new rules, and the costs that come with them, won’t have the same effect on every social service provider. Groups that already serve people in parks only once a week, as well as groups that have the money to buy insurance, don’t expect to be impacted by the permit requirements.

“As a larger organization, this change won’t affect us,” says Lesley Snider, founder of Night Strike, a nonprofit that, since 2012, has had a permit to run its weekly program in Waterfront Park. “But it could have a big impact on the smaller groups who aren’t insured.”

If the city begins enforcing the new policy, groups that operate on shoestring budgets—like Free Hot Soup, Portland Assembly, and others—say they’ll be forced to shut down, cutting off a critical service to poor people living in Portland.

“This is a revenue problem that’s the city’s own doing,” says Sara Rudolph, a volunteer with Portland Assembly. “And the city’s poorest populations have been caught in the crossfire.”

Fish says he would never approve a policy that targeted a vulnerable group, and he’s dismissed concerns about the new permit by offering to help raise funds to cover insurance costs. As for the groups that are built on a model of serving a daily meal at a consistent location, Fish suggests they simply relocate to a different park every day of the week. (As long as those other parks don’t have their own social service gatherings scheduled that week.)

Volunteers familiar with the homeless community say that proposal could do more harm than good.

“Our folks are hyperlocal,” says John Mayer, a coordinator with Beacon PDX, another group that serves lunch at Sunnyside Park. “To expect them to hop around and not have a solid place to meet, the city is promoting instability.”


“If you have money in this city, we have a lot of spaces where you can freely exist. But if you don’t have a car or a house, there are very few places where you can exist. When we further limit those spaces, we’re making a city that is skewing towards wealth.” -Kaia Sand, director of Street Roots


A commitment to consistency is reflected in Mayer’s work. He previously helped run a weekly dinner program in the basement of the United Methodist Church across the street from Sunnyside Park. That Wednesday gathering, “Hard Times Dinner,” abruptly ended its 38-year run in September after receiving an eviction notice from the church’s new owner.

Mayer and other Hard Times volunteers formed Beacon PDX as a way to continue serving the Southeast homeless community, partnering with Portland Assembly to make free lunch a weekday staple at Sunnyside Park.

“So much about their lives is unpredictable,” Mayer says of those who benefit from the service. “Giving this community something stable to depend on is the least we can do.”

David C., a regular at the Sunnyside lunches and one of the many Portlanders who lives in a tent, says the gatherings allow him to stay in touch with friends. He also appreciates the relatively rare opportunity to be taken care of. “It’s the people that make this,” he says. “The people who take time out of their day to bring us food and show us they care. That means a lot.”

For some, these daily gatherings are also critical for survival. Craig Bordelon, who lives in a car in Southeast Portland, struggles to live off his monthly Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) stipend of $200—especially since he doesn’t have a way to cook food. Warm meals in public parks have become an essential part of his diet. “I’d probably get sick or starve without them,” Bordelon says.

Mayer expects the new permit was partially inspired by complaints from homeowners and business leaders who don’t want to see homeless people in nearby parks. He says his group is regularly harassed by Sunnyside Park neighbors.

By instituting the new permit policies, Mayer says, “The city is signaling to the public that those who own a home are worth more than people without.”

Kaia Sand, director of the street newspaper and homeless advocacy group Street Roots, echoes Mayer’s concerns. She says she’s wary of any restrictions to public space that appear to fall along class lines.

“If you have money in this city, we have a lot of spaces where you can freely exist,” says Sand. “But if you don’t have a car or a house, there are very few places where you can exist. When we further limit those spaces, we’re making a city that is skewing towards wealth.”

Portland Assembly’s Rudolph says groups like hers fill a need that isn’t being met by city and county services. She believes if low-income Portlanders had more access to affordable housing—where they could prepare and cook their own food and store perishable items—groups like hers wouldn’t have to use public spaces to feed others.

We go to where the people are,” says Rudolph. “And right now, that’s outside. We are fighting so hard to do a little to help the city’s poorest people, but [the city] keeps making it more difficult.”

Troy Howard, a volunteer with Free Hot Soup, says his group chose to hold its nightly events in Director Park—a bustling plaza in an upscale part of downtown Portland—to draw the public’s attention to the above-average levels of food insecurity in Multnomah County.

“A big part of our location is to create a spectacle,” says Howard. “To show as many people as possible that others living in this city are food insecure.”

Howard says the new permit program shows that City Hall is out of touch with the needs of Portland’s low-income and homeless residents. He says the program also illustrates the pitfalls of a city government where major bureaus are led by rotating politicians, who may or may not be well-versed in the services their bureaus are expected to provide.


“I will welcome being arrested for feeding people in need, if it comes to it. We’re reasonable people and we’re doing reasonable work.” -John Mayer, volunteer with Beacon PDX


“It’s super frustrating,” says Howard, pointing to the clunky handoff of PPR between Fritz and Fish. “We have been very consistent and reliable from the start. It’s [the city] that has not been consistent, and we’re going to be the ones that pay for it.”

But the smaller social services groups—the ones that are the most threatened by the new regulations—aren’t shutting down without a fight. Howard, Rudolph, and Mayer all say they’d risk arrest to continue serving meals to Portlanders.

“I will welcome being arrested for feeding people in need, if it comes to it,” says Mayer. “We’re reasonable people and we’re doing reasonable work.”

And if the city plans on strictly enforcing the permit rules, a number of the groups say they’re prepared to sue. They wouldn’t be the first social services organizations to challenge a regional government over these types of restrictions. Volunteers in major cities like St. Louis, Houston, Philadelphia, and Orlando have all filed costly lawsuits against their city governments for introducing policies that place limitations on feeding the homeless in public. In 2018, Florida’s 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals decided that sharing food with people in need is a protected form of political expression, ruling that it was unconstitutional for the City of Fort Lauderdale to force its local Food Not Bombs group to obtain a permit to serve food in public parks.

Oregon’s 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is generally considered more progressive than Florida’s 11th Circuit, has yet to hear a similar case.

Tristia Bauman, an attorney with the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty, says what’s happening in Portland is similar to the Fort Lauderdale case.

“When we know people need hot food and the city has provided no alternatives, and we know people will continue to break rules to feed the public—that’s a political statement,” Bauman says. “Any restriction of that could end in a legal challenge.”

While PPR says it will waive the permit application fee for social service groups, Bauman says the restrictions that accompany that policy—like only waiving the fee if groups apply a month in advance and can afford to purchase insurance—could also be interpreted as restricting free speech.

“Portland is opening the door to legal challenges. Why?” asks Bauman. “If the city wants to end food sharing in parks... instead of costly litigation, it could invest in more shelter spaces or creating its own food-sharing program.”

Fish says he’s looked into city programs in cities like Seattle that provide indoor kitchen and dining spaces that can be used by social services groups to serve the public. He’s also spoken with a downtown church that’s interested in providing space for Free Hot Soup. But before looking for permanent solutions, Fish says the bureau will prioritize educating groups about the new permits and helping them to comply with the new restrictions.

Back at Sunnyside Park, the conversation has turned to the autumn weather. A group of men talk about finding new sleeping bags and blankets that would make nights spent outside a little more tolerable.

“It’s getting colder and darker,” says David C., holding his cup of soup. “That’s another reason why these warm meals are so important. If the city is planning on taking this away, it’s going to be a long winter.”

The 36 Best Things to Do in Portland This Weekend: Nov 8-10

 Cache   
by Mercury EverOut Staff

Ladies, gentlemen, exhibitionists, voyeurs, appreciators of fine art, smut peddlers, comedy lovers, music aficionados, trappers of Blitzens and Yungest of Baes... if ever there was a weekend specifically designed for your specific tastes, it's this one. Hit the links below and load your plate accordingly


Jump to: Friday | Saturday | Sunday

Friday, Nov 8

Morgan Murphy
Listen, I’m not saying that Portland is entirely responsible for the success of Morgan Murphy’s career as a stand up and a comedy writer. But isn’t it interesting that she was born here and then went on to great acclaim as a writer for both Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talk shows and popular CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls? That’s not even counting her work on stage where she redefines deadpan delivery for our modern hyperbolic age. All I’m saying is that Portland made Morgan Murphy, and I’m hoping she does the right thing by acknowledging that this weekend. (Fri-Sat Nov 8-9, 7:30 pm & 10 pm, Helium Comedy Club, $17-33) ROBERT HAM

HUMP!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! When the annual HUMP! amateur porn fest rolls into town, you know you’re going to be in for a hot time in the old town tonight. Don’t miss 21 new, sexy five-minute dirty flicks made by your friends and neighbors here in the Pacific Northwest that represent every stripe of sexual persuasion. Plus you get to vote on the lucky winners who will take home thousands in sweet cash MONEY. Get ready to laugh, squeal, and feel super tingly (down there) because HUMP! audience members have the time of their lives. But don’t delay, tickets for these shows are hotter than what you’ll see onscreen! (Fri-Sat Nov 8-9, 6:30 pm & 9 pm, Revolution Hall, $20-25, through Nov 23) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Mikal Cronin, Shannon Lay
Mikal Cronin possess the uncanny knack for penning effortless-sounding pop gems. On his fourth record, Seeker, he mines his self-introspection and the comeback from a bad case of writer’s block with convincing aplomb, conjuring Tom Petty melodies on the single “Show Me” with help from Ty Segall’s Freedom Band (of which he is a card-carrying member). There’s a lot of inferno-inspired writing coming out of California following last year’s devastating wildfires, and Seeker is no different, exploring ideas of rebirth from destruction. Cronin seems a gentle soul armed with the ability to pull wisdom from a chaotic world. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Mississippi Studios, $15-17, all ages) RYAN J. PRADO

Lit Crawl Portland
A boozy jaunt to literary parties all throughout downtown's bars and other nontraditional venues for readings, including stops at the Dorsa Brevia, Kickstand Comedy, Oregon Humanities, Literary Arts, The Big Legrowlski, Valentine's, and more! Click here for a complete schedule and list of participating venues. (Fri Nov 8, 6 pm, Various Locations, free)

David Sedaris
If you think you’re too cool for David Sedaris—the first of his name, brother of Amy, author of NPR’s old reliable holiday mainstay (c’mon, the Santaland Diaries is GOOD) and such humorist delights as Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim—you’re lying to yourself and you need to stop. Sedaris’ dry wit is indispensable in trying times. Go get some! (Fri Nov 8, 7:30 pm, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, $32.50-57.50) MEGAN BURBANK

Twin Peaks
Chicago-hailing garage rockers Twin Peaks return to town for an all-ages, headlining show supporting their latest album, Lookout Low. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $18-20, all ages)

Little Hurricane
With the weather growing colder and the sun going down earlier, now is the perfect time for discovering new music at home, especially when the artist in question—dirty blues band Little Hurricane—provides ideal background music for nocturnal snuggling on the couch. Their minimalist blues-rock has been the soundtrack of five Taco Bell commercials, which, as a cheap-burrito lover, almost makes me love the San Diego duo even more. The only thing better than a Friday night is one spent listening to Little Hurricane’s lo-fi sounds. Check out songs like “Haunted Heart,” “Sun Sets West,” and “Give ’em Hell,” and prepare yourself for one mother of a staycation. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Doug Fir, $20-23) KATHERINE MORGAN

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Brooklyn Nets
The Trail Blazers return home for a Friday night game against Kyrie Irving and the new-look Brooklyn Nets. (Fri Nov 8, 7 pm, Moda Center, $31 & Up, all ages)

Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage, Wuhlux
What can’t Jeffrey Lewis do? He’s the world’s leading authority on Watchmen, a noted comic book artist, and a brilliant (anti-) folk singer and lyricist. Catch up with him tonight when he brings the latest iteration of his band through the Fixin' To for a Friday-night performance that's guaranteed to lift your spirits heading into the weekend. (Fri Nov 8, 8 pm, The Fixin' To, $10)

IRCO Fundraiser
A benefit concert for the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization, featuring performances from The Vagilantes, Mess Machine, Charley No Face, and Fake News. (Fri Nov 8, 8 pm, Twilight Cafe & Bar, $8)

Alaska Thunderfuck & Jeremy Mikush: Amethyst Journey Live
RuPaul's Drag Race all-star Alaska Thunderfuck and her longtime collaborator Jeremy Mikush bring their newly-minted musical duo through the Aladdin Theater for the Portland stop on a tour supporting their new album, Amethyst Journey. (Fri Nov 8, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $40-100, all ages)

Moonchild, Kiefer
Soul'd Out presents a headlining set with Los Angeles trio Moonchild, who bring their jazzy blend of R&B and soul back to the Star Theater stage in support of their latest album, Little Ghost. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Star Theater, $23-25)

Monsters of Rock PDX
Monsters Of Rock PDX returns to the stage for the first time in 4 years to head up a benefit show for local musician Merrill Hale and his battle with ALS. Expect to hear covers from the likes of Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Thin Lizzy, and more, with sets spanning the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, and 2000s. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Dante's, $20)


Saturday, Nov 9

The Portland Book Festival
This one-day book fair and live reading / discussion event used to be called Wordstock, but no one can deny that Portland Book Festival has grown into its own cool beast. Since it’s only one day, it’s easy to splurge on a bunch of books, get them signed by your favorite authors, and sit in on a talk or two. Then you still have Sunday for laundry and “Book Church,” which is what I call making too much breakfast and sitting around with a huge pile of unread books. If you like the sound of this, but also want to get wild, make sure to scope the always boozy, popular Lit Crawl the night before. (Sat Nov 9, 9 am, Portland Art Museum, $15-20, all ages) SUZETTE SMITH

The Pacific Crest Comedy Fest
Portland’s comedy scene is bonkers (bonkers GOOD) which is why the addition of a brand-new comedy festival that features the greatest comedians from around town and across the nation is very welcome indeed! It’s the Pacific Crest Comedy Fest, featuring Steph Tolev and Maggie Maye; hometown gals made good Caitlin Weierhauser, Bri Pruett, and Amy Miller; local heavy hitters Nariko Ott, Amanda Arnold, Shain Brenden, Kate Murphy, Amanda Arnold; and many more! But that ain’t all: Expect awesome podcasts and regular shows like Earthquake Hurricane, Minority Retort, Speechless, the return of Lez Stand Up, pant, pant, pant… TOO MANY TO MENTION! Good god, that’s a lot of laughs in a short amount of time. (Sat-Sun Nov 9-10, Siren Theater) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Yung Bae, Birocratic
Portland producer Yung Bae brings an array of future funk and disco jams out to Holocene for a two-night hometown stand. (Sat-Sun Nov 9-10, 9 pm, Holocene, $13-17)

Robert Forster
The last time Robert Forster was in the Northwest, it was as a member of the Go-Betweens, performing in Seattle in 2005 during what would become that venerable pop group’s final tour. (Forster’s longtime musical partner Grant McLennan passed away suddenly a year later.) Much has happened in his life since then, including a regular gig as a music critic, an impassioned memoir about his work with McLennan, and three fantastic solo albums. His most recent, Inferno, finds Forster in peak form, with a folk-pop backing band, ambling through his back pages and unblinkingly facing his waning years with grace. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Mississippi Studios, $22-25) ROBERT HAM

Dune Rats
Brisbane-based garage punk trio Dune Rats comes back to Portland for a night of boisterousness finely honed down under. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, Bunk Bar, $15)

The I, Anonymous Show
Fuck off, Avengers! When it comes to once-in-a-lifetime superhero team-ups, NOBODY can compete with the lineup of comics that are assembling for the next installment of the Mercury’s beloved I, Anonymous Show! This time around—and in conjunction with the Pacific Crest Comedy Fest—our live show will feature host Kate Murphy, former host Bri Pruett, and former host Caitlin Weierhauser! AND they’re bringing along the hilarious Steven Wilber for the ride! In other words? If you want top-notch comics reading and reflecting on some of the Mercury’s funniest, weirdest, creepiest, and (very occasionally) sexiest submissions to our popular I, Anonymous column, you can’t do any better. And who knows, maybe Hawkeye will show up too. Not like he’s got anything better to do. (Sat Nov 9, 6 pm, Siren Theater, $10) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Max Bemis, Perma, Museum Mouth
Say Anything frontman Max Bemis steps out for a solo show at the Hawthorne Theatre, with Perma and Museum Mouth on-hand to round out the all-ages bill. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, $19-23, all ages)

Del McCoury Band, The Jacob Joliff Band
Del McCoury's band is a well-oiled machine of precisely plucked strings and high lonesome vocals that should sound positively divine bouncing around the Aladdin Theater tonight. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $42.50-45, all ages) BEN SALMON

Matt Andersen, Gaby Moreno, Liz Vice
The Canadian guitarist and singer/songwriter out of New Brunswick brings his brand of blues through Portland as part of the "Roots Rising" Tour, with Guatemala-hailing folk and blues artist Gaby Moreno and Portland gospel and R&B singer/songwriter Liz Vice rounding out the bill. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, Star Theater, $20)

NW Food & Wine Festival
Three of the greatest things on the planet, all at the same time? Food, Wine, and the Northwest combine for a full day of deliciousness, with over 600 wines available to sample, and bites from over 50 restaurants to enjoy. There's beer too, because it's an event in the Northwest so that means there's beer somewhere in there. (Sat Nov 9, 4 pm, Oregon Convention Center, $75-95)

Patrick Sweany
The blues-rock singer/songwriter out of Massillon, Ohio brings his soulful sound back to town for an intimate Saturday-night show supporting his latest album, Ancient Noise. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Polaris Hall, 413-15)

Hell Hath No Funny
You can always count on Siren Nation coming through town and putting together one hell of a lady-centric night of comedy. This year's hell features stand-up sets from local all-stars Katie Nguyen, Susan Rice, Andy Iwancio, Quinne Salameh, and Katie Murphy. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, Alberta Street Pub, $12)

Sisters of the Road 40th Anniversary Fundraiser
The 40th anniversary of Sisters of the Road's founding is a momentous occasion, so big that only Darcelle XV could properly star in it, with special guests Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, and Sisters co-founder Genny Nelson. The evening will include speakers, musicians, performances, and more. (Sat Nov 9, 5 pm, Billy Webb Elks Lodge, $100)


Sunday, Nov 10

Little Brother
Fresh off the release of their latest album, May The Lord Watch, North Carolina-hailing rappers Phonte and Big Pooh bring their reunited hip-hop act to the Wonder Ballroom stage for an all-ages performance. (Sun Nov 10, 9 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $28-33, all ages)

Blitzen Trapper, The Parson Red Heads
The experimental, folk-country monster pairing of Blitzen Trapper and the Parson Red Heads alone would make for a formidable evening at Revolution Hall, but tonight’s all-ages, fully seated show has a more philanthropic bent. The concert will benefit Do Good Multnomah, a local nonprofit working to assist veterans with housing by way of “relationship-building, one-on-one engagement, supportive services, and direct community participation.” Both bands are staples of Portland’s psych-oriented roots-rock scene and have transcended the city’s confines with their last several albums. Check them out and help a good cause at the same time. (Sun Nov 10, 7 pm, Revolution Hall, $30, all ages) RYAN J. PRADO

Ariel Gore
Journalist, author, and teacher Ariel Gore returns with Hexing the Patriarchy, detailing over two dozen potions, spells, and magical elixirs in the form of a "magical guide to subverting manboy power, one spell at a time."

MusicPortland Gear Fest
Music advocacy program MusicFest takes over Polaris Hall to transform it into a celebration of Portland's music community; not just its performers, but the artists who make the actual instruments and gear those performers communicate with. (Sun Nov 10, noon, Polaris Hall, $5-6)

Taylor Tomlinson
Do you need love, or do you need carbs? Taylor Tomlinson says they’re basically interchangeable and anyone who’s ever had baked macaroni and cheese will confirm: carbs are flat-out better. But would we have put this hilarious truth together before Tomlinson swept in like a wildly funny eagle with that gag clenched in her razor-sharp talons? Things I have compared Tomlinson to: a joke-firing machine gun and a powerful eagle. Needless to say, I’m hella excited to hear this up and coming comedian tape her next Netflix special in OUR CITY. Prepare to hear all her best material because THIS is going to be on the internet! (Sun Nov 10, 5:30 pm & 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $20) SUZETTE SMITH

Sci-Fi Authorfest 13
Your chance to meet, mingle, and get books signed by Sci-Fi authors Terry Brooks, Robin Hobb, Brent Weeks, Fonda Lee, Sebastien de Castell, Shawn Speakman, Caitlin Starling, Jason Gurley, Curtis C. Chen, Brenda Cooper, Kevin James Breaux, Spencer Ellsworth, Ken Scholes, Devon Monk, and Emily Suvada. (Sun Nov 10, 4 pm, Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, free)

The Shivas, Cry Babe, Ex-Kids
Beloved Portland psych and garage rock outfit the Shivas swing through the Doug Fir to celebrate the release of their new Tender Loving Empire-issued album, Dark Thoughts, with like-minded locals Cry Babe and Ex-Kids rounding out the bill. (Sun Nov 10, 8 pm, Doug Fir, $10)

Mouthy Live
Piper Davis' podcast comes to the Nightwood Society for Native American Heritage Month, to talk about culture, tradition, history, and of course, food, with special guests Brigette and Sean McConville of Salmon King Catering. (Sun Nov 10, 3:30 pm, The Nightwood Society, $25)

Phenomenal Woman
Portland singer/songwriters LaRhonda Steele, Bre Gregg, Beth Wood, and Ara Lee James link up with a talented backing band to bring you an array of original music, along with tributes to greats like Nina Simone, Carole King, Etta James, Dolly Parton, Bonnie Raitt, Patty Griffin, Aretha Franklin, and Joni Mitchell. (Sun Nov 10, 7 pm, Alberta Rose Theatre, $20, all ages)

Sincerity is Gross: The Dirty Thirdiversary
James Barela's stand-up showcase makes it to its third year on this filthy planet, and if you thought this was the show where some sentimentality and (gasp) sincerity poked its head through the crust, you're pretty sadly fuckin' mistaken: Mr. Barela promises that when Anthony Desamito, Lance Edward, Dylan Carlino, Wendy Weiss, and Diana Potter all take the stage? They're comin' with their nastiest shit, son. (Sun Nov 10, 8 pm, The Slide Inn, free)

    Comment on ABC News Doing Damage Control Over Leaked Video by Sir William

     Cache   
    Every day something else comes out about the main stream media not reporting on the news, but picking and choosing, slanting and omitting, shading and outright lying. Just last week it was CNN exposed as a hyper partisan network, ignoring any other news in their quest to tell the world how bad President Trump is. It shouldn't be any surprise that ABC (as did NBC) spiked the bombshell story of Jeffrey Epstein. That the Royal Family pressured ABC is a bombshell story in and of itself. Where would we be without alternative media sources nowadays ???

    Hi Messenger, Your question: "Considering the scriptures below, do you feel it safe to teach your narrative of a “level playing field,” that every human must receive before receiving God’s judgment, along with your teaching that God was using hyperbolic language when he ordered Jews, in scripture, to commit mass killings; but God really didn’t mean what those scriptures claim God said?" My answer: "Yes, I do." Eric

    Vantaggi economici, finanziari e sociali per le smart city

    ESI ThoughtLab ha presentato in anteprima i risultati preliminari della sua ricerca "Smart City Research Initiative 2019,  Building a Hyperconnected City". Lo studio  ha preso in esame  100 città metropolitane  in tutto il mondo ed ha  scoperto che la maggior parte di queste  città  ha ottenuto molti vantaggi economici,  finanziari, e  sociali grazie agli investimenti  nelle tecnologie smart. Sono però aumentati anche i cyber-rischi quando tali tecnologie non sono gestite in modo adeguato.

    Secondo lo studio, il 38% delle città che hanno implementato soluzioni di mobilità intelligente, hanno avuto un riscontro positivo dagli utenti e nel 32%  delle città, grazie ai miglioramenti nei tempi e nelle modalità di consegna delle merci, sono migliorati i tempi di produttività per le imprese. Nel 45% delle città che hanno implementato iniziative ambientali ed energetiche intelligenti  si stanno riscontrando miglioramenti per la salute dei cittadini, il 44% sta  riducendo l'inquinamento e il 43%  sta  stabilizzando i  prezzi dell'energia.   

    La velocità del  cambiamento  tecnologico  è stata rapida. Wifi, IoT, Cloud, Mobile  sono  ormai  tecnologie pervasive in tutte le città smart, utilizzate da più di 9 cittadini su 10. Altre promettenti tecnologie che stanno diventando di uso comune  sono:  biometria  (83%  delle città), Intelligenza Artificiale (82%) e Blockchain (66%). Mentre robot e droni, 5G, realtà aumentata e elaborazione distribuita sono promettenti nuove tecnologie promettenti, ma ancora nelle prime fasi di utilizzo. 

    L'uso di queste tecnologie sta trasformando l'ecosistema urbano portando: nuove  opportunità di business, miglioramento  della salute pubblica, riduzione del crimine, incremento della produttività. Inoltre questa trasformazione sta comportando vantaggi economici e finanziari che vanno oltre il recupero degli investimenti, procurando rendimenti tangibili soprattutto nel settore della mobilità e trasporti, energia, gestione dell'acqua, ambiente e rifiuti e pubblica sicurezza.

    Ma l'uso di tecnologie smart espone le città a maggiori rischi informatici. Oltre la metà delle città analizzate ha dichiarato di  non essere ben preparata per affrontare gli attacchi informatici. Le  maggiori vulnerabilità dichiarate si riferiscono ai sistemi  finanziari e di pagamento (54%  delle città), alle telecomunicazioni (51%), alla mobilità e ai trasporti (40%). Per far fronte all'aumento dei rischi informatici, l'82% delle città  prevede di aumentare di importi significativi il proprio budget per la sicurezza informatica il prossimo anno.

    Lo studio si  basa su un  rigoroso sondaggio di benchmarking  condotto  durante l'estate del 2019  da  ESI ThoughtLab e un gruppo intersettoriale di sponsor, tra cui Deloitte, Oracle,  Stantec , Pennoni ,  Eaton Lighting,  NTT Group, Nokia, Cognizant,  Visa e Microsoft . Il campione consisteva  di 100  città di diversa tipologia in  tutto il mondo  impegnate in  iniziative di smart city.

    Lo studio completo  sarà presentato nel mese di novembre  allo Smart City Expo World Congress di Barcellona.

    Voix off : Libre à vous !, l’émission pour comprendre et agir avec l’April, l’association de promotion et de défense du logiciel libre.

    Frédéric Couchet : Bonjour à toutes. Bonjour à tous. Vous êtes sur la radio Cause Commune 93.1 en Île-de-France et partout dans le monde sur le site causecommune.fm. La radio dispose également d’une application Cause Commune pour téléphone mobile.
    Merci à vous d’être avec nous aujourd’hui.
    La radio dispose également d’un salon web, utilisez votre navigateur web, rendez-vous sur le site de la radio, causecommune.fm, cliquez sur « chat » et retrouvez-nous ainsi sur le salon dédié à l’émission.
    Nous sommes mardi 29 octobre 2019, nous diffusons en direct, mais vous écoutez peut-être une rediffusion ou un podcast.

    Soyez les bienvenus pour cette nouvelle édition de Libre à vous !, l’émission pour comprendre et agir avec l’April, l’association de promotion et de défense du logiciel libre. Je suis Frédéric Couchet, le délégué général de l’April.

    Aujourd’hui c’est une émission exceptionnelle, car c’est la 42e émission de Libre à vous ! et 42 est un nombre fétiche dans la culture geek, informatique, la culture de l’imaginaire. C’est issu de l’œuvre de science-fiction de Douglas Adams qui était originellement un feuilleton radiophonique sur la BBC, totalement déjanté, et ensuite une série de livres, Le guide du voyageur galactique. Imaginez un peuple extraterrestre, intelligent, qui construit le plus puissant ordinateur de tous les temps pour trouver la réponse à la question sur la vie, l’univers et le reste. Après 7,5 millions d’années de calcul et de réflexion, l’ordinateur propose la réponse : 42. Le problème, c’est que personne n’a jamais su vraiment la question précise.
    Pour connaître la suite de l’histoire, je vous invite à lire l’œuvre de Douglas Adams et nous allons faire dans l’émission quelques clins d’œil à cette œuvre de Douglas Adams.
    Déjà, pour les personnes qui partent en vacances ou autre, n’oubliez pas, évidemment, de prendre avec vous des podcasts de Cause Commune pour accompagner votre voyage et n’oubliez pas, surtout, votre serviette c’est en effet l’outil indispensable pour tout auto-stoppeur galactique qu’il doit avoir ou qu’elle doit avoir en permanence.

    Le site web de l’April c’est april.org et vous y trouvez d’ores et déjà une page consacrée à l’émission avec toutes les références utiles, les détails sur les pauses musicales et les moyens de nous contacter.
    Si vous souhaitez réagir, poser une question pendant ce direct, n’hésitez pas à vous connecter sur le salon web de la radio, donc sur causecommune.fm, et vous pouvez également nous appeler 09 50 39 67 59 ; je répète 09 50 39 67 59.

    Nous vous souhaitons une excellente écoute.

    Voici maintenant le programme de l’émission.
    Dans quelques secondes nous allons commencer par la chronique de Marie-Odile Morandi, animatrice du groupe Transcriptions, qui va nous parler de communs numériques.
    D’ici dix à quinze minutes nous aborderons notre sujet principal qui portera sur le fameux lecteur multimédia libre VLC avec notre invité Jean-Baptiste Kempf.
    En fin d’émission nous aurons la chronique de Jean-Christophe Becquet, président de l’April, sur Wikidata, relier tous les serveurs du monde.
    À la réalisation de l’émission aujourd’hui Étienne Gonnu. Bonjour Étienne.

    Étienne Gonnu : Salut Fred.

    Frédéric Couchet : Comme à chaque émission on va vous proposer un petit quiz. Vous pouvez proposer les réponses soit sur le salon web, soit sur les réseaux sociaux.
    Première question : lors de l’émission du 15 octobre 2019, nous avons parlé de Google et des assistants personnels connectés. Par quel prénom et pourquoi on a proposé de renommer les assistants personnels connectés ?
    Deuxième question : nous allons parler du lecteur multimédia libre VLC au cours de cette émission. Savez-vous pourquoi l’icône de VLC est un cône de chantier ?

    Tout de suite place au premier sujet.

    Chronique « Les transcriptions qui redonnent le goût de la lecture » de Marie-Odile Morandi sur les communs numériques

    Frédéric Couchet : Les choix voire les coups de cœur de Marie-Odile Morandi qui met en valeur deux ou trois transcriptions dont elle conseille la lecture, c’est la chronique « Les transcriptions qui redonnent le goût de la lecture » de Marie-Odile Morandi, animatrice du groupe Transcriptions. Bonjour Marie-Odile.

    Marie-Odile Morandi : Bonjour.

    Frédéric Couchet : Le sujet du jour dont tu souhaites nous parler aujourd’hui : les communs numériques. Nous t’écoutons.

    Marie-Odile Morandi : Effectivement, ce mois-ci dans la chronique j’ai souhaité faire une rétrospective des transcriptions de conférences et interventions de Lionel Maurel, publiées par notre groupe, de « La dictature du copyright » à « Faire atterrir les communs numériques » sur le sol terrestre.
    Les transcriptions auxquelles je vais me référer sont listées à l’onglet références de la page relative à l’émission d’aujourd’hui sur le site april.org, mais il y en a aussi d’autres que vous pouvez retrouver sur la partie consacrée aux transcriptions, toujours sur le site de l’April.

    Pour savoir qui est Lionel Maurel et quels sont ses sujets de prédilection, je vais m’appuyer sur la transcription de l’émission 13 du Vinvinteur qui date de 2013, d’une durée d’une quarantaine de minutes ; à noter que cette émission n’existe plus. Lionel Maurel y était interviewé par Jean-Marc Manach. Il nous explique que le pseudo qu’il a choisi, Calimaq, fait référence à un certain Callimaque de Cyrène, un des premiers bibliothécaires de la bibliothèque d'Alexandrie dans l’Antiquité. En effet, Lionel est à la fois bibliothécaire et juriste d’où aussi le nom de son blog : lex, la loi et SI sciences de l’information donc S.I.Lex. Avec cette double casquette, Lionel s’intéresse aux problèmes juridiques liés au droit d’auteur et aux licences libres qui, dit-il, « mettent le droit d'auteur sens dessus dessous en laissant l’auteur au centre du dispositif ».
    Dans cet entretien il explique ce que sont les biens communs avec la nécessaire prise de conscience qu'il y a un écosystème numérique dans lequel il faut défendre la neutralité du Net et préserver certaines libertés essentielles, avec des références au logiciel libre et à l’intelligence collective.

    Je vous laisse lire cette transcription avec en bonus les explications que donne Lionel Maurel concernant la compilation hebdomadaire qu’il réalise, le Copyright Madness, c’est-à-dire les dérives de la propriété intellectuelle, du droit des marques et du droit des brevets, ce qui, généralement, ne manque pas de sel.

    Concernant le droit d’auteur, nous avions transcrit une intervention de Lionel Maurel à l’université de Compiègne en 2016 intitulée « Contenus numériques : droit d'auteur et licences libres » qui dure une heure et 40 minutes. Cette intervention est un cours complet et j’invite toutes les personnes qui sont intéressées par ce sujet, soit personnellement, soit dans un cadre professionnel, à écouter ce cours et à relire sa transcription : les thèmes abordés vont des notions de base du droit d’auteur, son fonctionnement, sa gestion, ses exceptions, pour arriver à l’application de ce droit sur Internet et terminer par les licences Creative Commons auxquelles est faite une large part. C’est un ensemble très complet qui mérite vraiment d’être relu régulièrement.

    Toujours concernant les licences libres, Lionel Maurel avait fait une intervention d’une dizaine de minutes au Paris Open Source Summit de 2017 intitulée : « Creative Commons. Où en est-on en 2017 ? »
    Il rappelle l’origine de ces licences, c’est-à-dire la façon dont Lawrence Lessig aux États-Unis, suite à sa défaite en tant qu’avocat pour empêcher l’allongement de 50 à 70 ans du copyright après la mort de l’auteur, souhaite « redonner directement aux créateurs le pouvoir de changer les choses et d’ouvrir leurs œuvres directement à la base en utilisant leur droit d’auteur non pas pour mettre des restrictions, mais pour donner des autorisations ». Il rappelle que certaines de ces licences ne sont pas libres au sens classique des termes des licences pour les logiciels libres dont elles s’inspirent. Je mentionne que les musiques qui sont diffusées durant les émissions Libre à vous ! sont réellement libres, c’est-à-dire Attribution et Partage à l’identique si elles sont publiées sous une licence Creative Commons.
    Je vous laisse lire les conclusions de cette intervention, somme toutes optimistes, ce qui est de bonne augure, avec la présentation de belles réussites d’œuvres placées sous ces licences Creative Commons.

    Lionel Maurel s’intéresse aussi au matériel et il avait tenu une conférence d’environ une heure au festival Pas Sage En Seine de 2016 intitulée : « Que manque-t-il pour avoir des licences Open Hardware qui fonctionnent ».
    Avoir du matériel vraiment libre est un enjeu fort, mais difficile parce qu’on entre dans le champ de la propriété industrielle qui comporte d’autres droits, les dessins et modèles, les marques, les brevets. Le droit d’auteur et la propriété industrielle ne fonctionnent pas du tout de la même manière, les règles sont différentes : pour obtenir un droit de propriété industrielle il faut notamment faire un dépôt.
    Actuellement ce mouvement se développe. Une fondation s’est montée, donne des instructions sur comment on doit faire pour être dans une démarche d’open source hardware et propose une définition : « conceptions réalisées publiquement et disponibles de manière à ce que n’importe qui puisse étudier, modifier, distribuer, créer et vendre un design ou un produit basé sur ce design », ce qui ressemble beaucoup à la définition du logiciel libre.

    Lionel Maurel estime qu’il y a trois stratégies possibles pour libérer le matériel :

    • la première serait de publier la documentation de ce qu’on a produit et verser directement l’invention dans le domaine public. Sauf qu’il existe aux États-Unis les patent trolls qui pourraient s’en servir. Ce sont ces sociétés qui ne fabriquent rien, déposent le plus de brevets possibles et vivent de la menace des procès qu’elles peuvent faire ;
    • deuxième pratique : documenter le projet : expliquer la démarche, le processus de fabrication, publier les plans, les fichiers de conception, préparer un maximum de documentation et tout publier sous licence libre. Sauf que la seule chose qui peut être protégée par le droit d’auteur c’est le texte de la documentation et absolument pas l’objet réalisé à partir de cette documentation ;
    • la dernière stratégie c’est de se dire, puisqu’il faut un brevet, eh bien déposons des brevets et ensuite ouvrons-les. Sauf qu’il faudra engager la procédure de dépôt, payer les coûts et, pour un petit constructeur, un petit inventeur, ce n’est certainement pas possible.

    Lionel Maurel propose des solutions que je laisse découvrir aux auditeurs qui liront la transcription. Pour lui il y a là un champ sur lequel faire de la recherche. Il appelle les personnes intéressées à participer car, dit-il, c’est un peu sous-estimé par le monde du Libre qui devrait être beaucoup plus présent sur le sujet.

    La dernière conférence en date qui a été transcrite est son intervention au Colloque « Territoires solidaires en commun : controverses à l'horizon du translocalisme », de juin 2019 et qui dure environ une heure.

    Là encore, il nous propose quelque chose de très complet, très documenté, avec des références à de nombreux auteurs ce qui permettra aux personnes qui le souhaitent d’approfondir leurs connaissances.

    Habituellement, dans notre esprit, nous distinguons les communs matériels, tangibles, des communs de la connaissance, des communs informationnels qui vont être des communs immatériels, intangibles.

    Charlotte Hess, qui a travaillé avec Elinor Ostrom, se pose la question : « C’est quoi Internet ? C’est la machine que j’ai devant moi. Il y a un fil. Le fil va à un serveur. Le serveur va à d’autres fils. D’autres ordinateurs sont reliés à ce serveur qui est relié à un système d’information. Ce réseau est relié par des câbles au réseau des réseaux qu’est Internet », et elle fait ainsi une description qui n’a absolument rien d’immatériel ; Internet est indissociable d'un certain nombre d'objets – ordinateurs, câbles, serveurs. Donc, nous dit-elle : « On peut penser Internet comme un commun local et global », montrant que les communs de la connaissance ont une dimension matérielle.
    Sur Internet, tout ce que vous allez échanger va laisser une trace quelque part et cette trace n’est pas du tout virtuelle, elle est matérielle parce qu’elle est inscrite dans une infrastructure physique. Nos données ne sont pas du tout stockées dans un nuage, elles sont stockées dans des datacenters, ces immenses hangars extrêmement matériels ; c’est la fameuse phrase « le cloud, le nuage, c’est toujours l’ordinateur de quelqu’un d’autre. »
    Donc le fait de nous présenter Internet comme quelque chose d’immatériel est extrêmement faux. L’idée selon laquelle le numérique allait nous permettre de produire les choses avec moins de matière est elle aussi fausse. On lit régulièrement que la consommation électrique due à Internet est préoccupante, à laquelle il faut ajouter les coûts de production des machines, sans oublier les déchets en fin de course qui sont difficilement recyclables. D’où les problèmes sur l’environnement. On en revient à des sujets d’actualité.

    Selon un des auteurs cités, une réelle émancipation « impliquera de se réapproprier toute cette chaîne logistique numérique aujourd’hui intégralement privatisée et aliénée ». Il faut qu’on fasse des centres de stockage des données autogérés et contrôlés par nous-mêmes.

    Lionel Maurel nous rappelle alors l’existence des fournisseurs d’accès à Internet associatifs, c’est-à-dire ces associations qui disent : « L’accès à Internet est un droit fondamental, donc nous allons tirer des câbles et nous gérerons nous-mêmes la couche physique du réseau. »
    Lionel Maurel nous rappelle les projets de l’association Framasoft et l’excellente idée du collectif d’hébergeurs CHATONS. Nos données se trouveront à un niveau local, sur les serveurs d’une entreprise ou d’une association proche de chez nous, qui a signé une charte avec notamment la clause de ne pas utiliser nos données personnelles, donc respect de la vie privée.
    Ainsi Internet redevient « translocal », thème de cette conférence.

    Actuellement de nombreux penseurs s’interrogent sur la matérialité d’Internet et sur son coût écologique que nous avons sans doute négligé.
    Cette dernière conférence m’a particulièrement intéressée, avec, il me semble, une évolution de la pensée, et j’ai souhaité partager.
    Transcrire les conférences de Lionel Maurel, défenseur de longue date des logiciels libres, est toujours un plaisir. N’hésitez pas à rejoindre notre groupe Transcriptions, vous ne le regretterez pas !

    Frédéric Couchet : Merci Marie-Odile. Tu nous a donné envie de lire ces conférences de Lionel Maurel.
    Je précise que le collectif CHATONS est le Collectif des Hébergeurs Alternatifs Transparents Ouverts Neutres et Solidaires dont nous avons déjà parlé dans les émissions Libre à vous ! du 18 juin et du 16 avril 2019. Vous retrouverez les podcasts sur april.org et causecommune.fm. Je précise également que tu as parlé des patent trolls, de ces trolls de brevets. On en reparlera rapidement en fin d’émission parce que c’est dans l’actualité.
    Marie-Odile je te remercie et je te souhaite de passer une belle journée.

    Marie-Odile Morandi : À vous de même. Bonne soirée.

    Nous allons passer à notre sujet principal.

    [Virgule musicale]

    Le lecteur multimédia libre VLC avec Jean-Baptiste Kempf président de VideoLAN et fondateur de la société Videolabs

    Frédéric Couchet : Nous allons donc poursuivre par notre sujet principal qui porte aujourd’hui sur le célèbre lecteur multimédia libre VLC dont l’icône est un cône de chantier et nous allons bientôt apprendre les raisons de ce choix. Notre invité est Jean-Baptiste Kempf président de VideoLAN, l’association qui gère VLC, et fondateur de la société Videolabs qui crée des services autour de VLC et plus généralement des nouveautés autour de la vidéo. Bonjour Jean-Baptiste.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Bonjour.

    Frédéric Couchet : On a déjà eu l’occasion d’avoir Jean-Baptiste dans l’émission en octobre 2018 pour nous parler de DRM, les fameuses menottes numériques sur lesquelles on reviendra très rapidement au cours de l’émission ; vous pouvez écouter évidemment le podcast. Déjà une première petite question, une présentation personnelle. Jean-Baptiste, d’où viens-tu ? Qui es-tu ? Quel est ton parcours ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Je m’appelle Jean-Baptiste. Je suis un geek, j’ai 36 ans, je suis Parisien, j’ai vécu la plupart de ma vie à Paris. Ça fait un bout de temps, à peu près 13 ou 14 ans, que je fais du VLC et que ça a pris de plus en plus de temps dans ma vie jusqu’à être mon métier principal.

    Frédéric Couchet : C’est quoi un geek ? Tu as employé ce mot-là au début.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Oui. Quelqu’un qui adore coder et être sur son ordinateur. Moi j’ai toujours été dans le logiciel libre dès que je me suis mis à l’informatique, pendant que j’étais en école.

    Frédéric Couchet : Donc un passionné notamment d’informatique.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Principalement.

    Frédéric Couchet : Principalement.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Mais aussi de bons bouquins de fantaisie comme le Le Guide du voyageur galactique de l’espace.

    [Rires]

    Frédéric Couchet : En plus c’est un grand honneur de te recevoir car, depuis le 15 novembre 2018, tu as eu le grade de chevalier de l’ordre national du Mérite, c’est l’une des plus importantes décorations françaises. Ça a l’air de te faire soupirer mais en même temps ça récompense une dizaine d’années de contribution à la fois dans ta société et dans la communauté du Libre.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Ça va te faire rigoler parce je suis un gros boulet : je n’ai toujours pas récupéré cette décoration parce qu’il faut organiser une cérémonie, avoir quelqu’un qui te la remet, et je dois avouer que ce n’était pas vraiment dans mes priorités, notamment personnelles, cette année. Il faut absolument que je m’en occupe parce que sinon je ne vais jamais avoir le droit de la porter. C’est génial ; c’est clair, c’est génial parce que ça montre notamment qu’on a eu des gens dans l’État qui commencent à comprendre ce qu’est le logiciel libre et pourquoi c’est important pour l’État et pour la France. Ça c’est vraiment très cool. C’était Mounir, à l’époque, qui m’avait proposé.

    Frédéric Couchet : Mahjoubi, qui était ministre du numérique [secrétaire d’État chargé du numérique].

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Maintenant c’est Cédric O, je crois, qui l’a remplacé. Donc c’est très cool. Par contre, ce que je n’aime pas : c’est une décoration personnelle pour un projet qui est un projet commun. C’est sûr que je suis la personne qui a passé le plus de temps autour de VLC et d’autres projets autour de VideoLAN, mais je suis toujours un peu mal à l’aise avec ça.

    Frédéric Couchet : C’est le côté starisation qui ne te plaît pas.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Ouais. Il y a beaucoup trop de starisation dans tout ce qui est tech, tout ce qui est startup. On parle plus souvent, on voit plus souvent, à propos des startups, plus des photos des fondateurs que de leurs produits. Ça me gêne un peu ; ce n’est pas très grave, mais ça me gêne un peu.

    Frédéric Couchet : OK. Avant d’oublier je précise que si des personnes qui écoutent veulent appeler pour faire une intervention et notamment poser une question à Jean-Baptiste, vous pouvez appeler le 09 50 39 67 59 et Étienne Gonnu, en régie, attend vos appels.
    Déjà une petite première question. En fait de très nombreuses personnes utilisent VLC souvent sans savoir que c’est un logiciel libre et ça permet à ces personnes de lire des vidéos. Mais toi, quand tu présentes par exemple peut-être en soirée ce que tu fais, comment tu présentes VLC, en une ou deux phrases ? Petit résumé.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Ça dépend de qui est en face, du public, et ça dépend de si je veux troller ou pas. En général, ce que je dis, c’est que c’est un lecteur multimédia qui est capable de lire tous les formats de fichiers audio, vidéo et qui marche partout. Ça c’est l’accroche et après, surtout, je dis que c’est un logiciel libre, développé par une communauté, pour le bien commun.

    Frédéric Couchet : D’accord. C’est intéressant parce qu’une des forces, effectivement, de VLC c’est de lire à peu près tous les formats de fichiers et on va y revenir dans la partie plus technique, présentation des fonctionnalités. Tu dis que c’est une communauté qui développe ça, justement, on va parler de l’histoire de ce projet. Comment c’est né ? Parce que c’est un projet très ancien, il y a de nombreuses années. Est-ce que tu peux nous raconter comment est né ce projet à l’École centrale de Paris, si j’ai bien suivi.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : En fait, ce qui est marrant dans VLC, c’est qu’il n’y a pas eu de créateur de VLC et surtout il n’y a personne qui a voulu faire VLC. Souvent les gens, quand je leur raconte ça, ça les déçoit un peu, il n’y a personne qui s’est dit « je vais faire un nouveau lecteur vidéo, ça va être mieux que le reste ». En fait, c’est une succession de projets qui commence il y a très longtemps, et une partie du projet du projet est devenu VLC. Je vais m’expliquer un petit peu parce sinon c’est un peu flou.

    Frédéric Couchet : Avec des dates.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Le projet originel date du fait que dans les années 60 l’École centrale Paris a déménagé de la gare de Lyon à Châtenay-Malabry dans le sud de Paris, pour des raisons un peu bizarres, mais notamment parce que l’Éducation nationale n’avait pas l’argent pour le faire. On s’est retrouvé avec une grande école française qui était sur un campus géré par des anciens élèves, donc privé. Et tout dans l’organisation du campus était fait par des étudiants : le téléphone, la télé, la radio, la cafétéria et le réseau informatique. Dans les années 80 ils mettent un réseau informatique et c’était un réseau informatique qui était basé sur Token Ring, donc un réseau très lent. Vers le milieu des années 90, ils veulent avoir un réseau plus rapide et quand ils vont voir l’École pour dire « on a besoin d’un nouveau réseau plus rapide », en particulier pour jouer, il ne faut pas mentir.

    Frédéric Couchet : Pour jouer en réseau au début.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Pour jouer en réseau et l’École leur dit : « Écoutez, vous allez être gentils, vous allez l’utiliser pour jouer en réseau et pas du tout pour travailler » et surtout, la raison principale de l’École c’est « vous comprenez, le campus est privé, nous on ne peut rien y faire » ; ils disent : « Allez voir les partenaires ». C’est là que le projet qui s’appellait Network 2000 – on est en 1995, à l’époque, évidemment, tout projet s’appelle 2000 sinon ce n’est pas un vrai projet – ils vont voir des partenaires, ils vont voir notamment TF1 qui dit : « Le futur de la vidéo c’est le satellite — aujourd’hui c’est facile de rigoler, mais en 1995 c’était important — et pour 1500 étudiants s’il faut mettre 1500 décodeurs et 1500 antennes ça va coûter une fortune. Ce qu’on vous propose, c’est de mettre juste un réseau très rapide, numérique – ce sont les débuts de la vidéo numérique – on met une grosse antenne et on diffuse la vidéo sur tout le réseau hyper-rapide. Évidemment on est en 1994/95, les ordinateurs les plus puissants ce sont des 486DX-33, DX-66 ou des Pentium 60, c’est absolument impossible, sans avoir des grosses machines, de faire du décodage vidéo taille DVD à l’époque, sans matériel, mais ils le font quand même et c’est comme ça qu’ils justifient l’achat d’un nouveau réseau pour ce projet dans l’association des étudiants qui gérait le réseau informatique. À ce moment-là il n’y a pas du tout de VLC.
    Ça finit, il y a une démo qui marche, ça crashe au bout de 50 secondes ; on fait une démo de 42 secondes, comme ça c’est nickel, c’était cross-platform, ça marchait grosso modo sous BeOS et Linux, rien d’autre, mais on montrait que c’était possible. Pendant un an il ne se passe plus rien. Il y a des étudiants en 98 qui disent : « C’est un projet qui est marrant, de diffusion de vidéos sur un réseau, il y a peut-être d’autres campus ou des réseaux d’entreprises qui sont intéressés ». Donc ils remontent un projet qui, à ce moment-là, s’appelle VideoLAN, lan qui veut dire réseau local en anglais. Donc ils montent le projet VideolAN. Ils sont en 98, ils ont comme objectif de devenir open source et d’être cross-platform. Mais dans VideoLAN, il y avait une partie serveur, une partie réseau, une autre partie un truc un peu compliqué, et il y avait une partie cliente. Mais la partie cliente ce n’était pas forcément le focus, parce que ce n’était pas forcément l’endroit le plus compliqué. La partie cliente s’appelle VideoLAN client.

    Frédéric Couchet : Donc VLC.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : À ce moment-là tout le monde l’appelle VideoLAN client. Ça ne va s’appeler VLC que trois ou quatre ans plus tard. Au moment où en 2001, après une bataille de longue haleine, l’École autorise le changement de licence pour que ça passe d’une licence propriétaire vers une licence open source, libre.

    Frédéric Couchet : Une licence libre, en l’occurrence la licence GNU GPL, General Public License.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Exactement. Ils ne précisent pas la version, ils disent GNU General Public License et ils ne précisent pas VLC, ils précisent « pour l’ensemble des logiciels du projet VideoLAN ». Donc VLC c’est une petite partie du projet VideoLAN, qui est un projet dont le but a été d’être libre, mais qui, au début ne l’était pas, basé sur un projet qui était originellement de faire un nouveau réseau parce qu’il y avait un réseau informatique lent à l’époque. À ce moment-là, quand ça passe en logiciel libre, c’est à ce moment-là qu’il y a des contributions extérieures importantes qui font que ça passe sous Windows et sous Mac OS rapidement et pas à l’initiative des élèves et que ça commence à démarrer à l’extérieur.
    En fait il n’y a personne qui s’est dit « waouh, je vais faire un nouveau lecteur, je vais le porter partout ». Ce sont vraiment des étudiants, plusieurs générations d’étudiants parce qu’on parle de 1994 à 2002 pour le début de l’explosion et il n’y a personne qui s’est dit « je vais créer VLC ! »

    Frédéric Couchet : D’accord. L’École centrale de Paris c’est une école d’ingénieurs. Toi tu intègres l’École centrale à quelle date ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : En 2003.

    Frédéric Couchet : En 2003. Je suppose, comme tu l’as dit en introduction, tu es un geek et tu es là pour apprendre, que tout de suite le projet te plaît. Est-ce que tu contribues tout de suite ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : C’est pire que ça. Moi j’ai choisi l’École centrale Paris parce que je savais que c’était une école où il y avait une association informatique qui faisait du Libre.

    Frédéric Couchet : Tu as choisi l’école pour ça ! D’accord !

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : J’avais rencontré en vacances quelqu’un ; j’ai eu le choix entre plusieurs grandes écoles et je suis allé à Centrale parce que je savais que un, il n’y avait pas beaucoup de cours et deux, parce qu’il y avait une association qui faisait du réseau, qui était sous Linux. Je n’y connaissais rien, c’était clair à l’époque. Donc ça a été mon choix, c’est pour ça que ça que je suis allé à Centrale.

    Frédéric Couchet : C’est marrant parce que ça me rappelle ma propre histoire à Paris 8, mais des années avant parce que je suis un peu plus vieux que toi. Donc tu arrives à Centrale en 2003. À l’époque il n’y a pas d’association qui porte ce projet et, si j’ai bien suivi, c’est toi qui vas initier l’idée de créer une association qui va s’appeler VideoLAN.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : En fait ça arrive bien plus tard parce qu’à l’époque entre les gens du réseau VIA et les gens de VideoLAN c'était très interconnecté. Je deviens vice-président de l’association du réseau et c’est moi, avec notamment un autre développeur qui s’appelle Rémi, qui portons pendant une année cette association, donc on fait des choses sur VideoLAN. La première chose que je fais sur VideoLAN c’est gérer la diffusion interne de la télévision pour le campus de Centrale. Et ça, ça doit être fin 2003/début 2004 que je commence à toucher au projet VideoLAN, mais pas du tout par la partie code, vraiment par la partie infrastructure. En fait, je fais un stage plus tard en 2005/2006 et je m’emmerde pendant ce stage.

    Frédéric Couchet : C’est aux États-Unis, ce stage ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Pas du tout. J’étais au CEA [Commissariat à l'énergie atomique], à la direction des applications militaires. Le stage était génial, mais j’avais beaucoup trop de temps. Je me suis vraiment amusé sur le stage, mais c’est juste que ça n’allait pas assez vite pour moi. Donc j’ai fait deux choses : j’ai fait pas mal de documentation et j’ai commencé à aider sur VLC.
    En fait, on s’est retrouvé un peu avec le problème que le projet était trop gros pour l’école, trop gros pour des étudiants, trop d’utilisateurs, et c’était très difficile de faire quoi que ce soit, surtout parce qu’en 2006/2007/2008 la nouvelle génération d’étudiants n’est vraiment pas intéressée par le projet. C’est à ce moment-là, fin 2007 et début 2008, que je lance l’idée de se séparer de l’école. Je crée l’association au VideoLAN Dev Days en décembre 2008, hébergée chez, Free et c’est là où on fait un vote, où on décide de créer une association. Début 2007 il n’y avait plus que deux personnes et demie actives sur le projet. Quand j’étais dans mon stage, comme tu l’as dit aux États-Unis, j’ai passé beaucoup de temps à retrouver des mondes, des anciens et des nouveaux, pour se remotiver autour de projet et ça va prendre quelques années pour qu’on arrive à la version 1.0 de VLC.

    Frédéric Couchet : D’accord. On va y arriver. Petite question : le choix du cône chantier comme icône, c’était à cette époque-là ou pas ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Quand je suis arrivé, le cône de chantier était déjà là.

    Frédéric Couchet : Est-ce que tu sais pourquoi le cône de chantier a été choisi ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Oui, je sais, évidemment !

    Frédéric Couchet : Vas-y.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Il faut savoir, et je suis désolé pour les auditeurs, qu’il y a une bataille d’anciens pour expliquer quelle est la raison du cône, mais quand moi je suis arrivé à Centrale, c’est sûr, on avait des étages de 24 étudiants et sur l’étage du 2H, l’étage du réseau, il y avait à peu près une centaine de cônes, il y avait une armoire à cônes.

    Frédéric Couchet : Le culte du cône !

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Le culte avec des jeux physiques comme le cône acrobatique, le « côneball », des batailles, des montages de batailles moitié laser moitié cônes. Il y avait vraiment un culte sur le cône qui était très drôle, pas du tout malsain, attention pour ceux qui ont peur, très marrant et hyper deuxième ou troisième degré. À l’origine ils avaient besoin de parler à un étudiant qui ne voulait pas leur ouvrir la porte. En fait, après une soirée probablement un peu arrosée, ils ont utilisé le cône comme porte-voix pour l’appeler et l’alpaguer depuis sa fenêtre. Plutôt que d’avoir une petite mandoline pour chanter une sérénade, ils ont pris un cône qui était là. Ça c’était des gens autour du réseau et, en fait, dans la première sortie sous Linux X11.

    Frédéric Couchet : X11 c’est l’environnement de fenêtrage graphique, on va dire.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Avant, la première version était en framebuffer, c’est encore au niveau plus bas. Ça passe à la première version. En fait, à l’origine, tout le monde se tirait un peu la bourre dans VLC, ce qui est normal parce qu’il y avait toujours plein de choses à faire, c’est super marrant, donc celui qui met la première version X11, il commit à quatre heures du matin, même si ce n’est pas fini, mais juste parce qu’il a quand même fait le plus gros du boulot, il envoie sa version et, pour montrer que ce n’est pas fini, il met comme icône le petit cône de chantier pour dire que c’est en travaux.
    Ensuite Sam Hocevar, qui est un des génies qu’il y a eu autour du projet, dessine la première icône et ça reste. Ce n'est pas réfléchi, c’est complètement débile d’utiliser un cône de chantier pour un lecteur multimédia, mais c’est un coup marketing absolument génial parce que c’est hyper-reconnaissable. Là, maintenant, je vais partout dans le monde, quand je parle de VLC les gens connaissent déjà beaucoup plus que l’École centrale Paris ou des choses comme ça, mais, surtout, il y a plein de gens qui font : « Je ne sais pas trop » et tu dis : « Mais si, le cône qui lit des vidéos » et là, c’est universel.

    Frédéric Couchet : Le cône de chantier. C’était une excellent idée et on salue Samuel Hocevar qui a aussi été le responsable du projet Debian, qui est aussi un grand fan de cinéma et notamment de La Classe américaine dont on parlera peut-être un jour. En tout cas, allez chercher sur un moteur de recherche Samuel Hocevar, c’est un génie.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Et qui a été un des premiers à introduire Wikipédia en France.

    Frédéric Couchet : Exactement. C’est aussi un des fondateurs de Wikimédia France.
    J’ai une petite question sur le salon web de la radio, je rappelle que c’est sur causecommune.fm, une réponse rapide, Marie-Odile qui demande : « Est-ce que cette école est toujours aussi sympa afin de la conseiller aux jeunes qui vont prochainement passer des concours ? » L’ECP ? Est-ce que tu conseillerais d’aller à l’ECP aujourd’hui ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Désolé, je n’en sais rien du tout. Maintenant elle s’appelle CentraleSupélec, ça a été fusionné avec Supélec. J’y vais de temps en temps parce que je suis toujours administrateur de l’association du réseau, je trouve que les gens sont toujours aussi cools, par contre je trouve que leur campus est quand même moins marrant que le nôtre.

    Frédéric Couchet : D’accord. Voilà la réponse par rapport à ça. On a bien compris qu’au départ il y a pas mal d’étudiants et d’étudiantes qui ont contribué. On va revenir tout à l’heure sur la contribution concrète, aujourd’hui, à VLC, parce que les gens doivent se dire qu’il doit y avoir des centaines de personnes qui contribuent tous les jours à VLC. On va aussi parler du financement, mais dans une deuxième partie. On va revenir un petit peu, une fois passé cet historique, on remarque que c’est un logiciel libre qui existe depuis très longtemps, qui se développe. Aujourd’hui c‘est la version 3.0, c’est ça ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : C’est ça.

    Frédéric Couchet : 3.0. Tu l’as dit tout à l’heure, l’un des grands atouts de VLC en termes de fonctionnalité, c’est que ça intègre les codecs nécessaires à la lecture de la plupart des formats audio et vidéo et que VLC peut aussi lire à peu près tous les flux réseau. Donc le choix de VLC, pour beaucoup de gens, c’est aussi la qualité et la capacité d’accéder à peu près à tous les contenus. Une autre caractéristique c’est la capacité de lire des flux un petit peu endommagés et de les réparer à la volée, c’est assez magique ! Un autre avantage, et là j’aimerais bien que tu expliques comment vous faites, c’est le côté multiplateforme, parce que souvent les logiciels libres sont disponibles sur environnement Windows, Mac, GNU/Linux, mais vous allez encore plus loin, c’est de l’Android, c’est de l’iPhone, c’est OS2. C’est intégré dans certaines box et ça serait intéressant d’en reparler tout à l’heure. Comment vous faites pour ce côté multiplateforme ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Il y a plusieurs raisons. La première raison c’est que VLC est hyper-modulaire, contrairement par exemple à un autre lecteur multimédia qui est sur Linux qui s’appelle MPlayer, qui était là avant. Le cœur de VLC est tout petit, ça doit être un dixième du code, un vingtième du code, et après on a plein de modules. La raison pour laquelle VLC est passé en modules, ça n’est pas du tout une idée, une grande idée en disant « il faut absolument faire ça », c’était, je suis désolé pour le terme technique, pour raccourcir les temps de compilation à l’époque. Quand on faisait une modification on modifiait juste un module et on compilait, c’était beaucoup plus rapide que tout compiler.

    Frédéric Couchet : La compilation c’est partir du code source pour arriver à la version compréhensible par l’ordinateur.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : C’est ça. En fait, pour faire plus simple, c’était juste plus facile de développer, mais ça n’était pas dans le but d’être plus cross platform, c’était vraiment Sam qui voulait coder plus rapidement, donc pour aller plus rapidement dans son développement il est passé en modules. Et ce passage en modules, en fait c’est vraiment un coup de génie, qui n’était peut-être pas forcément vu à l’époque, c’est que ça a permis justement d’être sur plein de plateformes, parce que quand tu vas sur une autre plateforme tu fais juste une nouvelle sortie audio, une sortie vidéo, une nouvelle interface et puis c’est tout ; tu n’as pas à modifier tout le reste. Et, deuxième effet cool qui est très bien, c’est que ça permet aux gens qui rentrent dans le projet de commencer à contribuer sans être capables de comprendre ce qui se passe au cœur. Moi, pendant quasiment deux ans depuis le premier moment où j’ai codé sur VLC, je n’ai jamais rien fait dans le cœur de VLC parce que c’est compliqué ; mais ce n’est pas grave, comme ce sont des modules, tu rajoutes juste une fonctionnalité : tu veux un nouveau format, tu rajoutes juste un module ! Et quand tu veux placer sur d’autres plateformes, que tu as mentionnées, mais on est aussi sur Apple TV, sur Android TV, on a une version qui marche sur la PS4 – elle n’est pas publique parce que, pour des raisons de liberté, on ne peut pas la publier.
    En fait, ce que je dis, c’est que VLC est un des logiciels le plus porté sur plein d’autres plateformes, en tout cas interfaces. On est sur plus de plateformes que Chrome, on est sur plus de plateformes que Firefox, que LibreOffice et je ne parle même pas, évidemment, de logiciels propriétaires comme Office ou Apple.
    Il faut comprendre que, évidemment, ça prend beaucoup de temps, mais, en fait, le cœur de VLC est géré par cinq personnes. C’est important. Ce sont des gens très bons et je suis poli, à part moi ce sont vraiment des gens exceptionnels au niveau code, qui sont vraiment de classe internationale, qui sont hyper-bons, qui savent ce qu’ils font et c’est ça qui permet de supporter plein de plateformes. Ensuite on est très conservateurs sur notre approche du code. On écrit tout en C, un petit peu de C ++.

    Frédéric Couchet : C, c’est un langage de programmation.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : En langage de programmation C, donc vraiment du bas niveau, parce que c’est un langage qui est très limité mais qui est relativement simple, dont on connaît très bien les limites, donc ça permet à VLC de garder cette qualité. Et un truc important aussi concernant VLC, sa marque, c’est que les gens normaux, c’est-à-dire pas les gens qui passent leurs journées à recompiler leur VLC sur Linux, font confiance au code. Et ça c’est hyper-important. La deuxième raison c’est que dans VLC il y a des gens comme moi qui ont été hyper-embêtants sur la qualité du produit. J’ai emmerdé les autres développeurs des centaines de fois en disant « non, ça ce n’est pas possible, ça casse ce problème pour l’utilisateur ». J’ai passé des heures et des heures sur les forums, sur Twitter, etc., à écouter ce que voulaient nos utilisateurs, c’est hyper-important, ce n’est pas la partie la plus marrante. Pour moi c’est important d’avoir du produit qui fonctionne.

    Frédéric Couchet : Justement sur la partie support j’ai une question : est-ce que globalement l’équipe reçoit plus d’encouragements ou de remerciements que de plaintes, ou traditionnellement… ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Non ! On n’entend que des plaintes, voire des insultes ou des menaces de mort.

    Frédéric Couchet : À ce point-là !

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Oui. Des gens ont envoyé des lettres anonymes que j’ai reçues chez mes parents. Il y a des tarés partout ! Par rapport aux centaines de millions d’utilisateurs, en fait c’est ridicule les plaintes. Évidemment, quand tu es de l’autre côté, tu ne vois que la partie négative et c’est vrai que de temps en temps tu as des mecs qui te dises : « C’est trop bien ! » Il y a des mecs qui m’ont envoyé de la bière parce que sur un thread reddit j’ai dû raconter qu’une des bières que j’adore c’est la Kasteel Rouge et il y a quelqu’un qui a envoyé chez mes parents une caisse de Kasteel Rouge, que j’ai bue.

    Frédéric Couchet : Est-ce qu'il t'a invité au Dernier Restaurant avant la fin du monde ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Non, on ne m’a pas encore invité au Dernier Restaurant avant la fin du monde, mais on m’a déjà invité pas mal de fois au Dernier bar avant la fin du monde soit celui de Paris soit dans d’autres endroits.

    Frédéric Couchet : Il y en a dans d’autres endroits ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Oui. Il y en a dans d’autres endroits.

    Frédéric Couchet : D’accord. OK. Tu parlais à l’instant de la qualité, notamment par rapport à l’expérience utilisateur et utilisatrice, il y a un autre sujet qui doit sans doute te faire stresser c’est la sécurité. D’ailleurs je ne sais pas sur combien de machines, si c’est estimable, VLC est installé, mais le problème de sécurité soit par un bug soit par une injection de code malveillant, ça doit te faire flipper !

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : C’est clair que c’est un vrai sujet qui est très compliqué. Je vais d’abord répondre à ta première question qui est combien il y a de VLC installés. On ne fait pas de télémétrie – moi j’appelle ça de l’espionnage, certains appellent ça de la télémétrie, ça s’appelle de l’espionnage même quand c’est Mozilla qui le fait, nous on ne fait pas d’espionnage –, par contre, c’est vrai qu’on peut savoir des choses. On peut savoir le nombre de téléchargements sur notre site web, sachant qu’il y a évidemment plein d’autres sites de téléchargement comme Download.com, Telecharger.fr et toutes les distributions Linux qui redistribuent sans passer pas nous, donc on n’a pas cette information. Mais là, déjà, on voit qu’on est à peu près à 25 millions, 30 millions de téléchargements par mois. Deux tiers, en fait, ce sont des updates, mais le reste ça ne l’est pas. Déjà le fait qu’il y ait pas mal d’updates ça nous donne des informations.

    Frédéric Couchet : Les updates ce sont les mises à jour.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Les mises à jour. Après, on a des informations de Microsoft, du nombre d’utilisateurs, notamment pour les crash reports.
    En fait, on n’a pas d’infos fiables, mais on a une estimation. En nombre d’utilisateurs actifs, ce que tu définis comme une personne qui utilise VLC une fois dans le mois, sous Windows on a 300 millions d’utilisateurs actifs.

    Frédéric Couchet : Waouh !

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Donc tu peux considérer qu’en nombre d’installations on doit être au moins au double, en nombre d’installations !

    Frédéric Couchet : Sous les environnements GNU/Linux, FreebSD et autres, libres, on n’a pas d’estimations.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Si. À une époque j’avais fait des estimations : grosso modo on prend le nombre sur Windows, on divise par dix et on a la part de marché qu’on a sous Mac OS et on prend exactement la même chose sous Linux, donc ça fait 30 millions. Sur les machines bureau on pense qu’on a 350 millions d’actifs, donc en nombre d’installés c’est peut-être 600 millions, 700 millions. Après il y a les mobiles. On a eu, par exemple sur Android, 250 millions de téléchargements, de comptes qui l’ont téléchargé et 60 millions d’actifs et sur iOS quelque chose de similaire. Ça donne un ordre d’idée.

    Frédéric Couchet : C’est une grosse masse.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : C’est une grosse masse.

    Frédéric Couchet : Donc la partie sécurité doit être stressante !

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : En particulier parce que nous on fait du C, on est vraiment au bas niveau, on n’est pas en train d'avoir un langage qui nous aide parce que dans le multimédia, on n’a pas le choix, il faut être hyper-performant. On va le plus proche du matériel, donc on a accès au bas niveau, donc on a accès, en fait, vraiment à tout. Pour ceux qui comprennent, quand on est dans VLC on est vraiment en mode kernel quasiment partout.

    Frédéric Couchet : C’est-à-dire qu’on est au plus proche du matériel, donc on peut quasiment tout faire.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Et surtout j’ai accès à tout, j’ai accès à tous tes fichiers, si tu crashes VLC, normalement. C’est le même problème qu’a Chrome, sauf que Chrome ils ont une approche, ils ont des millions pour améliorer ça. On a vu, par exemple, la CIA qui a utilisé une fausse version de VLC et, en même temps que tu regardais ton film, il y avait un petit plugin qu’ils avaient rajouté, un petit module de VLC qu’ils avaient rajouté qui, en fait, chiffrait tous tes documents dans ton dossier « Mes documents » sous Windows et les envoyait quelque part. Ce n’était pas notre version de VLC mais c’était une version récupérée quelque part qu’ils redistribuaient et tu ne t’en rends pas compte : tu regardes un film, ça dure deux heures ou trois heures quand c’est Avengers games, donc ton PC travaille, il y a un peu de bruit, ça ne t’étonne pas.
    Ça c’est un vrai problème et puis il y a des failles de sécurité, comme pour tous les logiciels, mais les gens font un peu moins les mises à jour que pour Chrome ; pour ton navigateur, tu passes ton temps à faire ça. On a une approche, notamment depuis trois ans, qui est très proactive, où on va notamment analyser le code et faire des choses comme ça pour, justement, trouver des bugs en amont. On a eu un bug bounty par la Commission européenne qui payait des hackers pour essayer de trouver des problèmes dans VLC et ensuite nous on allait réparer.

    Frédéric Couchet : C’est le projet FOSSA [Free and Open Source Software Audit] ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Sur le projet FOSSA.

    Frédéric Couchet : Le projet FOSSA de la Commission européenne.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Évidemment que c’est grâce à Julia Reda.

    Frédéric Couchet : L’ancienne eurodéputée du Parti pirate.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Évidemment il n’y a qu’elle qui est intéressée par ce genre de truc. C'était vraiment très cool et ça permet de remonter des problèmes, mais ça ne règle pas le problème fondamental. Pour régler le problème fondamental on a une idée avec un système de sandboxing, c’est très compliqué et surtout ce sont des choses qui n’ont jamais été faites.

    Frédéric Couchet : Est-ce que tu peux expliquer en une phrase ce qu’est le sandboxing ? Ou après la pause musicale si tu veux.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : L’idée du sandboxing et je ne pourrai pas faire plus technique que ça…

    Frédéric Couchet : Moins technique que ça.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Ouais, pardon, c’est que quand VLC a un problème, en fait, il est dans son petit environnement, donc il n’a accès à rien sur ta machine, donc ça n’est pas grave.

    Frédéric Couchet : C’est un bac à sable juste pour VLC.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : C’est ça. En fait, ça c‘est la théorie. En pratique, il va falloir mettre une dizaine de bacs à sable à l’intérieur de VLC et c’est très compliqué.

    Frédéric Couchet : On va permettre aux gens de réfléchir en écoutant une pause musicale. Nous allons écouter Jack’s Playing Ball par Jono Bacon. On se retrouve juste après. Belle journée à l’écoute de Cause Commune.

    Nous allons poursuivre notre discussion sur VLC, le lecteur multimédia libre, avec Jean-Baptiste Kempf du projet VideoLAN et de la société Videolabs dont on parlera tout à l’heure.
    Juste avant on parlait de technique et notamment de sandboxing, bac à sable, et pendant la pause musicale Jean-Baptiste m’expliquait un petit peu les projets pour la version à priori 5, ça a l’air d’être quand même un sacré enjeu technique.
    Là on va parler un petit peu des problématiques juridiques. On va les aborder rapidement parce que chacune de ces problématiques juridiques est complexe en tant que telle. Déjà j’ai une première question parce que tu es connu pour avoir reçu des propositions, parait-il de plusieurs dizaines de millions d’euros, en échange de l’insertion de publicités et de logiciels malicieux dans VLC et tu as refusé. Pourquoi ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : C’est tout à fait exact. Ça m’est arrivé au moins trois fois, des mecs qui voulaient : en même temps que ça installe VLC, il t’installe un antivirus Avast ou Avira, changer ta page de démarrage ou d’installer des spyware. Ça c’est hostile à l’utilisateur donc pour moi c’est no way, quel que soit le montant.
    J’ai des gens qui m’ont proposé de racheter le nom de domaine videolan.org, ils étaient déjà un peu plus malins parce que c’est un peu plus malin que d’essayer de mettre de la merde dans VLC, mais pareil, ça ne correspond pas à quelque chose qui est bien pour mes utilisateurs ni à la philosophie que j’ai autour du projet. Je ne suis pas contre l’argent en soi, mais l’argent ça doit être fait de façon morale.

    Frédéric Couchet : D’accord. Au niveau des problématiques juridiques, on va parler de deux problématiques juridiques précises assez rapidement, les DRM, les menottes numériques et ensuite brevets.
    Les DRM, les menottes numériques, on en a déjà parlé avec toi et Marie Duponchelle dans l’émission d’octobre 2018, vous retrouverez le podcast évidemment en ligne, donc les menottes numériques qui empêchent un certain nombre d’usages. Il y a quelques années VLC avait saisi l’HADOPI [Haute autorité pour la diffusion des œuvres et la protection des droits sur Internet] parce que beaucoup de gens ignorent que l’HADOPI, au-delà de son activité bien connue, a normalement la régulation de ce qu’on appelle les mesures techniques de protection, ce que nous on appelle les menottes numériques, et notamment vous l’aviez saisie concernant les Blu-ray, le format des Blu-ray : est-ce que VLC avait les capacités juridiques – non pas techniques parce que techniquement vous saviez le faire, évidemment – pour lire ces fameux Blu-ray. Première question : pourquoi vous avez dû saisir l’HADOPI ? Quelle était la réponse de l’HADOPI et quelle est la situation aujourd’hui par rapport à la lecture notamment de ces Blu-ray ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : VLC est capable de lire les DVD depuis 2001 et, en fait, c’était avant les lois LCEN, EUCD…

    Frédéric Couchet : LCEN, loi pour la confiance dans l’économie numérique et EUCD c’est la version française de la directive droit d’auteur.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : C’était des lois qui avaient été faites. On était passé avant ça. Quand on veut mettre la lecture du Blu-ray dans VLC on est après ça et il y a notamment une agence de régulation des mesures techniques de protection qui avait été créée et qui n’avait jamais rien foutu. Ils n’avaient même pas rendu le rapport annuel qu’ils devaient rendre, donc on a mergé ça dans HADOPI au moment de la loi HADOPI. En théorie, c’était à eux de nous aider parce qu’en fait il y a un problème fondamental qui est l’interopérabilité et les mesures techniques de protection. Grosso modo, ce sont deux concepts qui sont impossibles et puis la loi était hyper peu claire, donc on est allé poser des questions, puisqu’en théorie c’était eux le régulateur. On n’a rien compris à la réponse, en particulier parce qu’ils n’ont rien compris à la question. Ils ont fait ça avec une mauvaise foi absolument forte. Ils n’ont jamais réussi à comprendre, ça a mis deux ans avant qu’on réussisse à avoir une question au gouvernement par un député et c’est à ce moment-là qu’ils ont commencé à se bouger. Grosso modo, ils n’ont rien compris à la question, ils ne nous ont même pas posé la question. En fait ils étaient dans un mode complètement politique avec Franck Riester.

    Frédéric Couchet : Actuellement ministre de la Culture et anciennement rapporteur du projet de loi HADOPI.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : À la fin il s’est rendu compte qu’en fait qu’il y avait quelque chose à faire et qu’on n’était pas là juste pour les emmerder, qu’on posait vraiment une question ! Et puis il y avait le secrétaire général de la HADOPI dont j’ai oublié le nom.

    Frédéric Couchet : Éric Walter.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Éric Walter, qui a essayé de bouger, mais c’était trop tard. J’ai dit publiquement que c’étaient des gros nuls. Je le redirai publiquement.

    Frédéric Couchet : Tu es en train de le dire publiquement.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Je peux le redire une fois de plus, ça ne me dérange pas. Jacques Toubon qui, évidemment, ne se souvient pas de moi parce que c’était mon maire quand j’habitais dans le 13e arrondissement de Paris, qui a écrit dans la presse que j’étais un méchant, grosso modo.

    Frédéric Couchet : Jacques Toubon qui est aussi un ancien ministre de la Culture et qui, à l’époque, devait être député européen, je pense.

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Peut-être. Aujourd’hui il fait un travail qui est plutôt bien en tant que médiateur civique de la République [Défenseur des droits], je crois que ce qu’il fait est plutôt pas mal. Il m’avait gonflé. Une fois je l’ai croisé, je lui ai dit qu’il n’avait rien compris au sujet et je crois qu’il m’a dit : « C’est possible, je n’ai rien compris ! »

    Frédéric Couchet : Donc l’HADOPI a répondu à côté ou n’a pas compris le sujet, aujourd’hui, légalement, comment ça se passe ?

    Jean-Baptiste Kempf : Je ne sais pas. Tu p

    A History of Homeworld Part 5: The Homeworld War

     Cache   

    In this series celebrating the franchise's twentieth anniversary (and the recent announcement of Homeworld 3), I look at the background lore of the critically-acclaimed Homeworld series of video games.

    Following the defeat of the Hiigarans and the driving of their people into exile in a remote corner of the galaxy, the Taiidan emerged as the strongest and most powerful of the galactic empires. The strongest race on the Galactic Council – bar only the now avowedly non-interventionist Bentusi – the Taiidan expanded their empire far and wide. They established their new seat of government on Hiigara, although Taiidan remained their most populous world.

    Emperor Riesstiu was hungry for more power and influence, but also cautious. He knew that the Bentusi, should they be provoked out of their neutral stance, could destroy the Taiidan with the very same technology the Hiigarans had used to lay them low, so adopted a cautious path of expansion mixed with consolidation and aggression tempered by compromise. For three millennia, the Taiidan ruled as the pre-eminent galactic power, but its rulers always restrained their worst instincts.

    During this time period the galaxy entered a period of stagnation; technological development proceeded extremely slowly and, with almost the entire galactic disc mapped and explored, there was a lack of brave new frontiers to explore. Various expeditions to the neighbouring satellite galaxy and even other galaxies altogether were proposed, using the Bentusi’s Far Jump capabilities, but nothing came of them. For three millennia, as the Exiles on Kharak collapsed to a medieval level of technology and then rose again, the galaxy spun in peace, but an uneasy peace punctuated by the slowly growing brutality of the Taiidan.
    In 9035 GSY, whilst the Heresy Wars still raged on Kharak, the long peace was interrupted by the arrival of the Turanic Raiders. A race of space pirates, the Raiders waged unceasing war on the Outer Rim Trade Routes, stealing vast quantities of cargo. The Raiders soon learned not to test the might of the Bentusi, but had no fear of the ships of other races and became a serious menace. In 9410 GSY (four years after the Second Core was found in the ruins of Khar-Toba) Emperor Riesstiu IV the Second made an alliance with the Turanic Raiders, giving them free reign to attack other races as long as they steered clear of Taiidan ship sand worlds.

    Emperor Riesstiu IV had already been among the bloodiest and most unhinged of the Taiidan Emperors, but his clone-successor was possibly deranged, soon becoming known as the Mad Emperor. Riesstiu IV 2nd was so bold as to be reckless, constantly baiting and testing the patience of the Galactic Council and even the Bentusi. In 9503 GSY, the Bentusi broke their long neutrality to censure the Taiidan and suspended all trade contact with the Empire. The Frerrn Aggregate, a powerful Council race along the Far Rim, found itself in almost a state of war with the Taiidan due to a series of border conflicts.

    At the same time, Riesstiu IV 2nd was cracking down hard on dissidents within the Empire, including a nascent democratic movement which was demanding the replacing of the monarchy with a republic, restored to Taiidan rather than captured Hiigara. The Mad Emperor’s brutal measures brought several Taiidan worlds and naval fleet elements to the edge of outright rebellion.
    If there was one weakness in the Mad Emperor’s armour it was the fate of the Exiles. His predecessors had sent ships to the edge of the Kharak system to monitor their fate, with orders to sterilise the planet completely should the Exiles show even the vaguest signs of developing hyperspace technology. Instead, many of the Taiidan ships simply vanished and failed to return. 
    Taiidan forces eventually discovered the presence of a massive hyperspace interdiction field surrounding the Kharak system, presumably the result of Bentusi intervention (the possibility that the Second Core had survived the destruction of Sajuuk’s Wrath and been taken to Kharak seems to have been discounted). An experimental drive managed to briefly penetrate the field and allowed a weapons platform to be deployed in Kharak orbit, but the ship carrying out the work was then pulled down to the planet’s surface and the platform never activated (until, ironically, its discovery by the Kushan themselves).

    A prophecy had been uttered at one point that the Exiles would escape from their prison and return to Hiigara, toppling the Taiidan Empire along the way. Despite their best efforts to stamp out the superstition, it continued to be repeated and Riesstiu IV 2nd became convinced that if the Exiles ever did escape their planet in his lifetime, he would need to take swift action. He had a Taiidan fleet positioned as close to the field as possible with orders to completely annihilate all life in the system should it fail. He also granted the Turanic Raiders the right to strip the system of anything of value afterwards.

    In the year 9510 GSY, 1216 by the Kharakian Dating System, the inhibitor field shut down and the Taiidan guard fleet immediately responded.

    The Kharakian Genocide.

    The Kharakian Genocide

    It was only a matter of hours after the Mothership departed to the outer edge of the Kharak system that a fleet of alien warships appeared in the skies above Kharak. The planet’s missile defence system immediately responded, destroying several of the Taiidan warships out of sheer surprise, before the Taiidan responded, obliterating first the Scaffold and then the orbital fighter squadrons and missile launch platforms. The space around the planet secured, the Taiidan then dropped several atmosphere-deprivation bombs on the planet.

    These weapons of mass destruction, whose use was prohibited by the Galactic Council, detonated with tremendous force across Kharak’s northern hemisphere. The multi-gigaton blasts annihilated vast swathes of the planet, its cities and people by themselves. The blasts then ignited the atmosphere, burning the planet’s biosphere from the ground up. Nothing could survive. Approximately 300 million people were killed.

    Satisfied that the job was done, the Taiidan fleet withdrew, aside from several frigates left behind to mop up any remaining orbital assets.

    The Kushan Mothership had jumped to the outer edge of the Kharak system to rendezvous with the Khar-Selim, only to find the ship already a wreck. Turanic Raiders were already swarming through the outer system, seizing resources. The Mothership fought off the Raider forces that had eliminated the Khar-Selim and jumped back to Kharak, only to find their planet burning in space. They also found the Taiidan assault frigates commencing an attack on the cryo-trays which had been left behind in orbit. The Mothership’s own fighter and corvette squadrons were able to destroy the Taiidan ships and capture one intact. The cryo-trays were recovered. The Kushan race was now reduced to just 650,000 survivors.

    The Mothership in the Great Nebula.

    The Journey

    The crew of the Mothership had to overcome immense shock and grief to ensure the survival of their race. With Kharak rendered completely uninhabitable, they now had no choice but to follow the path laid out by the Guidestone, to Hiigara. The odds seemed ridiculous, especially once the interrogation of the Taiidan crew was completed. The Taiidan Empire was vast, spanning a considerable portion of the total width of the galaxy, with a population of billions spread across dozens of planets and their capital standard planted firmly on Hiigara itself. The Taiidan navy consisted of thousands of ships, compare to the single Mothership. The chances of victory seemed slim.

    However, the Kushan possessed several advantages. The first was surprise: the Taiidan did not know that the Mothership even existed, let alone had survived. The Mothership’s Hyperspace Core was also capable of jumps dozens of times greater than those of the Taiidan. The Mothership could jump past Taiidan fleet lines and make its way to Hiigara in a few months, whilst it would take the Taiidan years to recall their entire fleet to defend Hiigara. The Mothership’s ability to harvest resources and build new ships in deep space also allowed it to rapidly expand itself from a single vessel to the flagship of a substantial fleet of vessels consisting of fighters, corvettes, frigates, destroyers, heavy cruisers and carriers. The Kushan also had remarkable salvaging abilities, boarding and seizing control of enemy ships under heavy fire, allowing them to swell their fleet further. Although the Kushan were ludicrously outnumbered, they were still able to bring their entire firepower to bear in a single engagement, whilst the Taiidan were scattered in an attempt to find them.

    In this manner, the Kushan undertook one of the boldest and most impressive military campaigns in galactic history. From Kharak they travelled into the Great Wastelands and destroyed the Taiidan fleet that had attacked Kharak. They then reached the outskirts of the Great Nebula. There, for the first time in three millennia, they were confronted by a Bentusi trade ship. The news of the Exiles’ return was greeted with cautious optimism by the Bentusi, but some trepidation for the behaviour of the ancestors. But the Kushan proved surprisingly merciful for a race which had lost so much, accepting the surrender of enemy forces where it took place and accepting diplomatic mediation with the Bentusi.

    The Exile fleet passed through the Great Nebula, coming under attack by the Kadeshi, an off-shoot of their own race who had abandoned the flight to Kharak three millennia earlier. The Exiles defeated the Kadeshi and seized some of their ships to add to their fleet. Beyond the Great Nebula, in the Sea of Lost Souls, they neutralised an ancient alien vessel which had been seizing control of passing ships for centuries. Even the Bentusi had been unable to subdue it.

    The Exiles entered Taiidan imperial space by destroying a guard post near an active supernova, then closed in on the Galactic Core. By this time news of the great “victory” at Kharak had reached Hiigara and the Emperor loudly proclaimed the achievement, but the result was not what he expected.

    The final battle over Hiigara.

    The Galactic Council censured the Taiidan for their use of a forbidden weapon and the Bentusi petitioned the Council to restore Hiigara to the Exiles. The Emperor, furious, launched a concerted attack on the Bentusi. The Bentusi refused to respond with their full force, but defended themselves. One trade ship was actually in danger of being overcome by a large Taiidan fleet until it was rescued by the Exiles themselves. The Emperor’s obvious insanity now split the Taiidan Empire, with a new, free republic being declared on Taiidan itself. Dozens of Taiidan worlds fell into civil war.

    The final act began when the Taiidan Republican Navy made contact with the Exiles and formally allied with them. Fleet Captain Elson guided the Mothership fleet to the vast starship graveyard at Karos, from where vital intelligence was extracted showing a way into the Hiigaran system, bypassing most of the Taiidan defences. The Emperor, now aware of the growing precariousness of his situation, had called as many ships in as possible to defend Hiigara, but found this was much less than expected; the allied Kushan and Taiidan rebels were able to smash his fleet in a final pitched battle over Hiigara. They then fired on and destroyed the Emperor’s flagship.

    As fire reigned down on Hiigara, the Taiidan forces on the planet surrendered and agreed to withdraw. The Taiidan Empire fell, almost half of the member worlds joining the new Taiidan Republic, the rest becoming independent worlds, or falling to various warlords styling themselves the new Emperor.

    It had taken the Exiles – Kushan no more, now once again Hiigarans – six months and thousands of lives to reclaim their homeworld. Hiigara was again theirs, a planet they could barely have dreamed of in the burning sands of Kharak. A world of vast blue oceans, bright blue skies and cool breezes, teeming with animal life.

    The Mothership took up station in orbit as a defensive redoubt and then a shipyard. The fleet it had accumulated became the core of an even larger navy dedicated to defending the planet and the system. The slow process of unloading the cryo-trays and thawing out the half million survivors of Kharak could now begin, but not before all of those who had fought their way to Hiigara were allowed to stand on the surface and breathe its air.

    The Right Skincare For Every Stage Of Your Monthly Cycle

     Cache   

    We cycle through four distinct hormonal phases each month. With our endocrine systems constantly in flux, it can be difficult to know what our bodies need to get to that elusive state of balance.

    We asked LA-based holistic aesthetician, Hayley Wood aka Therapeutic Skin Coach, to talk to us about how to manage skincare when our hormonal cycles are wreaking havoc. From lifestyle adjustments to a few powerful products, here's how to manage skincare through your monthly cycle...

    The Follicular Phase

    This phase starts on the first day of menstruation. During this phase, the pituitary gland communicates to specific hormones to start producing egg cells in the ovaries again. The follicular phase is often 13 days long and rebuilds energy levels after shedding the uterine lining. For the most part, women don’t seem to experience too much of a fluctuation in their skin during this time unless they are incredibly depleted in certain vitamins and minerals, or have not been experiencing a lot of PMS symptoms caused by excess stress.

    This is often the result of excess cortisol, adrenal fatigue and/or even thyroid imbalance if stress isn’t managed daily. The results of these imbalances also have a more lasting effect on the skin, which may be classified as a hormonal imbalance. Typically, the follicular phase is one in which we start to feel better and more energized, so our skin reflects this shift beautifully.

    The number one takeaway of this stage is to help the skin feel supported. We can do this by adding vitamin-rich and hydrating ingredients that encourage the skin’s natural ability to regenerate. Over-treating skin with harsh actives (such as AHAs and retinol) could deplete your skin more. In other words, think about feeding your skin instead of stripping it. This is what I recommend...

    Sonage High Impact Vitamin C serum | Lightweight water-based Vitamin C Serum harnesses a unique liposomal delivery system to hydrate the skin. The extra boost of citrus-derived Vitamin C reduces the appearance of dark spots and evens skin tone. CHECK OUT

    odacite vitmain c serumLaurel Whole Plant Organics Antioxidant Serum | This moisturizing and brightening serum features a whole plant blend of gotu kola, comfrey, calendula, nettle, and rosehip oil that stimulate collagen production, reduce sun damage, and encourage healthy cell reproduction. CHECK OUT

    Odacite’s Blueberry Jasmine Serum | A treasure trove of antioxidants, blueberry seed oil helps promote free-radical defense as it improves skin tone and texture. Jasmine oil rejuvenates dry and dehydrated skin, promoting a soothed, soft complexion and combat feelings of anxiety. CHECK OUT

    The Ovulation Phase

    This phase starts once your menstrual and follicular phases are over. This is often the fourteenth day of your cycle. The now mature egg cell is prepared to be released from the ovary to the fallopian tube. Once the pituitary gland communicates this function, the body will secrete the hormone needed for ovulation. This is also the opportunity to conceive or the signal to avoid intercourse. Most standard birth control pills are created to trick the body into skipping this step to prevent pregnancy. At this time the body tends to peak in hormone levels, as well as temperature, which can be associated with breakouts during the next phase of our cycle.

    On a skin level, the reason you may experience imbalance is because of actions taken in this stage — eating non-supportive foods, overextending without proper stress management, ignoring the overall body temperature or little-to-no rest/reset time. All of these habits can trigger overcompensation by our skin for detoxification. It will work on one or more of its primary functions as a filter to shed excess waste, a barrier to protect from environmental triggers and regulation of body temperature. The skin will start to feel stressed when working on all of these functions at once.

    The ovulation phase is not always when we can physically see an imbalance, but it is the perfect time to set yourself up for skin success. Take preventative action to avoid skin stress. Add a gentle, calming mask to your routine that will balance the primary functions of your skin. This is what I recommend...

    Sonage Tulsi Soothing Tri Clay Mask | This calming clay mask extracts toxins and impurities from the skin while delivering minerals to maintain a smooth, fresh complexion. It features three mineral-rich clays with a trifecta of healing Ayurvedic herbs. CHECK OUT

    hormonal skincare clay mask

    MV Skincare Signature Mineral Mask | Rich in silica, zinc and magnesium, this mask is softening, strengthening and gently exfoliating. CHECK OUT

    Sonage Pom Crush Detox Mask | If you tend to become excessively oily and are prone to congestion, give this mask a try. It includes a combination of several gentle but effective fruit enzymes, and is a great way to naturally break down the excess build-up so your skin doesn’t overdo it. CHECK OUT

    The Luteal Phase

    This phase starts right after ovulation and is typically when many feel the most intense skin shift. Hormone levels peak and immediately drop to help prepare the shedding of the uterine lining if conception didn’t take place. Along with monitoring overall nutrition to make sure the body feels supported during this stage, it is also a time when brain activity can feel sluggish. The need for an afternoon nap may feel exceptionally strong.

    Because we don’t live in a culture where our schedules are designed to optimize time and focus per phase of our menstrual cycle, it can feel like we are all overcompensating. We opt for a quick fix to help us stay alert and present. This can mean more caffeine or an increase in stimulating foods. If the body is feeling slow or sluggish, this can mean that our overall system needs more rest.

    The best piece of advice I give my clients is to try to get more rest. Otherwise, skin cells may deplete from their overall radiance. Go to bed early. Avoid excess blue light which can trigger hyperpigmentation. If our hormones are not supported (since all of our cells have different circadian rhythms) when we’re pushing ourselves too much, add hydration to your cells. This can help your overall appearance and energy. I recommend these products to rejuvenate tired skin...

    Osea Malibu’s Hyaluronic Sea serum | This lightweight, non-greasy moisture boosting serum smoothes wrinkles & fine lines and replenishes dry, thirsty skin. Hyaluronic Acid is considered to be nature's most powerful moisture magnet, as it draws in moisture and delivers intense hydration that plumps skin and gets you glowing. CHECK OUT

    osea hyaluronic serumSonage NMF hyaluronic serum | Hydrating hyaluronic acid gel serum works as a "water-reservoir" to protect against dehydration. Plumping and rejuvenating humectant leaves skin smooth and silky. CHECK OUT

    De Mamiel Pregnancy Oil | This gentle, hydrating daily cleansing oil purifies the skin from the pollution, toxins, and stress of modern life. This formula infuses its natural protective layer with deep regenerative nourishment and the soothing and fortifying benefits of carefully selected phytonutrients. CHECK OUT

    The Menstrual Phase

    During menstruation, it’s really valuable to simplify your care and allow your skin to do what it does best: self-heal.

    What is most important during all the cycle phases is to make sure you are connecting your whole body. The primary reason we experience skin imbalance directly connects to a blockage in the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is essential for eliminating excess dermal waste and stagnant proteins in the skin. If this system is blocked due to stress, tension or a lowered immunity in our body, it will cause build-up or blockages on the skin. This will present in the form of breakouts, wrinkles, inflammation or even hyperpigmentation. Here's what I recommend...

    Gua Sha | A good practice of at-home gua sha and overall lymphatic system support (like a rebounder routine and/or dry brushing) will make a big difference for glowing and vibrant skin throughout each phase of your cycle. CHECK OUT

    Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator | This spray is rich in aloe, healing herbs and natural astringents like lavender and witch hazel. Using this product indicates to the skin that you trust its functions and gives it the space to reset. CHECK OUT

    Actualités du scepticisme (VI) Pierre Bayle hyper-sceptique

     Cache   

    C'est dans la pensée du dernier sceptique du XVIIe siècle, Pierre Bayle, qu'on trouve le point culminant des critiques sceptiques de la philosophie et de la théologie. Dans ses très nombreux écrits, cet hyper-sceptique attaque une grande variété de théories et d’opinions.

    Né en 1647 dans la petite ville de Carla (aujourd’hui Carla-Bayle), près de la frontière espagnole au sud de Toulouse, où son père est pasteur protestant, Pierre Bayle vit dans l’atmosphère agitée de la persécution des huguenots, dont le statut de minorité puissante est mis à mal par Louis XIV.

    Le jeune Pierre Bayle est d’abord envoyé dans une école calviniste à Puylaurens, puis au collège des jésuites de Toulouse en raison de la disparition dans la région d’institutions protestantes convenables pour son éducation. L’importance des controverses religieuses dans les livres de l’époque et la force de conviction dialectique des protagonistes du débat à Toulouse le conduisent à abandonner le protestantisme pour le catholicisme. Après avoir commis le pire péché qui soit pour le fils d’un pasteur calviniste persécuté, il se rachète aux yeux de sa famille par une seconde conversion, quelques mois plus tard, en abandonnant (semble- t-il de nouveau sur la seule base de considérations intellectuelles) le catholicisme pour revenir au protestantisme.

    Par son second changement de religion, Bayle devient, techniquement, un « relaps », c’est-à-dire un individu à nouveau hérétique après avoir abjuré ses hérésies, et donc exposé à de sévères peines dans la France de Louis XIV (tels le bannissement et l’emprisonnement). Pour sa protection et sa réintégration dans le monde calviniste, Bayle est envoyé en 1670 à l’université de Genève, où il achève ses études de philosophie et de théologie. Profondément endoctriné en faveur de la philosophie cartésienne par les philosophes de cette université calviniste, il revient clandestinement en France en 1674 et devient précepteur à Paris et Rouen. Il rend alors fréquemment visite aux Basnage, une éminente famille protestante rouennaise, et fréquente souvent le salon de Justel à Paris, où il rencontre l’évêque Huet. En 1675, Bayle concourt pour le poste de professeur de philosophie à l’académie de Sedan (dernière institution protestante d’enseignement supérieur en France), qu’il obtient en tant que protégé du très orthodoxe théologien Pierre Jurieu – qui deviendra son ennemi le plus acharné.

    De 1684 à 1687, Bayle publie et édite les Nouvelles de la République des Lettres, dans lesquelles il recense et commente des livres de toutes sortes. Son jugement aiguisé fait bientôt de lui une des figures centrales de la communauté intellectuelle et l’amène à entrer en relation avec des figures de premier plan comme Leibniz, Malebranche, Arnauld, Boyle et Locke. En 1686, il publie l’une de ses œuvres magistrales, le Commentaire philosophique sur ces paroles de Jésus-Christ, Contrains-les d’entrer. En 1693, la carrière universitaire de Bayle prend fin avec le renvoi de son poste à Rotterdam – ce qui lui offre le temps nécessaire pour s’occuper de son Dictionnaire historique et critique et des controverses qui suivront.

    L’esprit qui imprègne le Dictionnaire est déjà à l’œuvre bien avant sa rédaction. Bayle a en effet compilé pendant des années les erreurs qu’il a identifiées dans divers travaux historiques. Et sa lettre de 1675 à Minutoli fait apparaître qu’il est alors déjà sérieusement intéressé par le scepticisme. Ses conférences de Rotterdam montrent qu’il se consacre à l’analyse et à l’attaque de toutes sortes de théories – attitudes critiques et sceptiques qui fusionneront dans le Dictionnaire.

    La première édition paraît en 1697 et rencontre un grand succès. Attaqué par Jurieu1 et porté par sa coterie à l’attention du consistoire de l’Église française réformée de Rotterdam, l’ouvrage est également interdit en France – événements qui contribuent sans doute à sa notoriété et à sa popularité. De plus, Bayle est soulagé par l’interdiction du Dictionnaire en France car elle lui permet d’échapper à l’accusation de ne pas avoir été suffisamment pro-protestant et anti-catholique. Dès l’achèvement de la première édition du Dictionnaire, Bayle travaille à la deuxième en ajoutant de nombreux articles et remarques, répondant aux nombreuses critiques reçues – ce qui augmente le texte de deux millions de mots.

    Bayle ne se contente pas de reprendre le problème sceptique classique de la connaissance et de perpétuer la tradition initiée par Montaigne afin d’attaquer les nouveaux dogmatiques – Descartes, Hobbes, Spinoza, Malebranche et Leibniz. Dès que l’« incomparable » Isaac Newton fait son apparition, Bayle l’attaque également2. Aussitôt les théories de John Locke publiées, il se met au travail. Et quand, dans l’article « Rorarius », Bayle exprime sa satisfaction face aux efforts que déploie son ami Leibniz pour lui répondre, c’est principalement parce que la théorie de l’harmonie préétablie du philosophe allemand lui offre une nouvelle occasion de mener une analyse destructrice3.

    La stratégie générale de Bayle est de réduire à néant toute théorie sur la base de ses propres thèses, qu’elle soit métaphysique, théologique ou scientifique. Pour ce faire, il s’appuie davantage sur les sections antimétaphysiques des écrits de Sextus que sur les premières sections épistémologiques. Quel que soit le sujet débattu – les âmes des bêtes, la physique newtonienne, la nature de la matière ou de la vérité –, s’ensuit toujours le même résultat perturbant : chaque fois que Bayle examine une théorie pour souligner les conséquences logiques de ses hypothèses, surgissent de toute part problèmes, questions et doutes.

    Lorsqu’on l’adopte suffisamment longtemps, cette approche met en évidence le triste fait que toute entreprise rationnelle contient toujours le principe de sa propre perte. Ce qui semble au premier abord être un bon moyen d’expliquer quelque chose devient rapidement le meilleur moyen de sombrer dans la perplexité. Toute entreprise rationnelle, en quelque domaine que ce soit, conduit au pyrrhonisme, au scepticisme intégral. Dans l’article « Uriel da Costa » (rem. G), Bayle résume ainsi la déplorable situation intellectuelle de l’homme : « Il n’y a personne qui, en se servant de la Raison, n’ait besoin de l’assistance de Dieu ; car, sans cela, c’est un guide qui s’égare : & l’on peut comparer la Philosophie a des poudres si corrosives, qu’après avoir consumé les chairs baveuses d’une plaie, elles rongeroient la chair vive, & carieroient les os, & les perceroient jusqu’aux mouelles. La philosophie réfute d’abord les erreurs ; mais, si on ne l’arrête point là, elle attaque les véritez: &, quand on la laisse faire à sa fantaisie, elle va si loin, qu’elle ne sait plus où elle est, ni ne trouve plus où s’asseoir. »

    Dans la Théodicée, Leibniz décrit un débat avec son ami Bayle : lorsqu’un penseur propose une affirmation, Bayle l’analyse et la questionne jusqu’à ce que son interlocuteur finisse par l’abandonner et affirme la chose opposée, affirmation à laquelle Bayle fait subir le même sort, et ainsi de suite à l’infini ; son analyse critique se poursuivant tant qu’il reste un adversaire pour affirmer quelque chose4. Dans chaque cas, ce qui intéresse Bayle n’est pas simplement de contester la théorie concernée, mais qu’occasion lui soit ainsi donnée de généraliser son attaque à toute théorie et montrer les abysses inévitables auxquels conduit toute entreprise intellectuelle humaine.

    L’histoire de l’humanité n’est pour Bayle que l’histoire des mensonges et des malheurs de la race humaine. L’article sur le roi David est une illustration frappante des misères causées par une figure religieuse majeure. Si Bayle présente l’histoire de la manière la plus négative qui soit, il souligne, pour désarmer par avance ses critiques, ne rien inventer et respecter le texte biblique. À la fin de sa présentation, l’ancien roi israélite est entièrement discrédité et condamné, entre autres crimes, pour meurtre et agression sexuelle. De même, si l’on était parfaitement honnête, suggère Bayle, il faudrait considérer comme barbare et immoral le monde des patriarches bibliques et juger de la même façon l’histoire séculière des hommes des temps anciens à nos jours. Tout cela vient à l’appui de sa thèse selon laquelle une société d’athées pourrait bien être plus morale qu’une société de croyants.

    Son « Éclaircissement » sur l’athéisme renforce la position de Bayle : il y affirme ne pas connaître d’athées immoraux ; mais si ses lecteurs ont des informations à ce sujet, qu’ils aient la gentillesse de les lui envoyer et il les considérera. Débute ensuite l’exposé de sa thèse de l’existence sur terre d’une société d’athées qui se porte bien mieux que n’importe quelle société européenne. Exploitant les récits sur la Chine parvenus en Europe, Bayle accepte l’idée que cette société soit à la fois athée et bien plus stable et morale que n’importe quelle société européenne. En prenant la Chine pour modèle, Bayle insiste sur l’idée que toute société structurée par la religion est destinée à souffrir tôt ou tard d’intolérance, de persécutions, de guerres, de schismes et de tous les maux de l’humanité. Son plaidoyer pour une société athée pourrait être vu, à la manière des Lettres persanes et d’autres ouvrages de l’époque, comme un miroir tendu à l’immoralité de l’Europe. Mais ce plaidoyer revient peut-être plutôt à affirmer pleinement que la moralité est indépendante de la religion et qu’il y a quelque chose dans la religion qui l’oppose à la morale. Cette idée suggère, du même coup, qu’on pourrait trouver des principes moraux qui ne soient pas sapés par un raisonnement sceptique5. Cet aspect de la pensée de Bayle – la séparation de la morale et de la religion – va devenir particulièrement important chez les Lumières françaises, anglaises et américaines.

    Les écrivains du XVIIIe siècle n’auront de cesse de faire des arguments de Bayle l’« arsenal des Lumières », amenant ainsi des changements monumentaux dans le monde intellectuel. Beaucoup de philosophes6 et de figures du XIXe siècle s’intéressant à l’histoire intellectuelle admettent que, puisque Bayle a fourni à l’« Âge de la raison » tant de munitions contre les théologiens et les métaphysiciens non éclairés, il devait aussi partager les conceptions avant-gardistes des Lumières – faisant de lui un précurseur des tendances irréligieuses, empiriques et scientifiques qui devaient détruire l’idéologie de l’Ancien Régime. Mais si Bayle a bien fourni aux Lumières l’arsenal que ses partisans vont user contre tous leurs opposants, il ne se fait aucune illusion pour sa part sur ce que la raison humaine peut accomplir.

    Bayle affirme constamment le caractère inadéquat et incohérent des entreprises intellectuelles humaines, la nécessité de se tourner vers un guide différent – la foi et la Révélation – et l’idée que la meilleure image de la vie chrétienne est celle, érasmienne, dans laquelle l’étude pieuse constitue le but de la vie. Si, comme je le pense, il s’agit bien là de ce en quoi Bayle croit, alors il a certainement été mal compris par les penseurs des Lumières, qui ont fait de ses attaques destructrices la défense d’une nouvelle théologie – le scientisme – qui ne s’avérera pas plus cohérente ni plus adéquate que les conceptions auxquelles Bayle avait ôté leurs prétentions et leur gloire.

    Les sceptiques du XVIIe siècle sapent la révolution cartésienne pour préparer le terrain à une philosophie et à une science sans métaphysique. Mais l’attaque totale de Bayle, contre tout ce qui se dit et se fait, porte le scepticisme à son ultime extrémité : il sape tous les efforts intellectuels humains, ramène l’héritage de la nouvelle philosophie et de la nouvelle science à une pagaille incohérente et révèle que toutes les approches de n’importe quel problème peuvent très vite apparaître dénuées de sens et incohérentes. Pour Bayle, le problème n’est pas seulement la structure interne de la théorie cartésienne de la connaissance, mais l’irrationalité fondamentale du monde de Dieu – irrationalité qui se manifeste dans tous les efforts de théorisation que nous entreprenons. Chaque théorie et chaque solution, montre Bayle, finissent par aboutir à des contradictions, des absurdités et des paradoxes. Seul un nouveau guide – la foi et la Révélation – pourra sortir l’homme de ce bourbier. Mais cette foi, Bayle ne la trouve, comme Bunel, que dans la vie paisible de celui qui se consacre sans relâche à l’étude plutôt que, à l’exemple du chevalier de la foi des textes de Kierkegaard, dans une vie entièrement dévouée à la religion.

    Il semble cependant y avoir un point où il suspend son scepticisme et adopte des conceptions morales positives. Bayle a en effet été considéré comme le père de la tolérance moderne, en particulier pour son premier ouvrage, le Commentaire philosophique, où il plaide contre la persécution catholique des huguenots en défendant le droit de tout un chacun à ses propres convictions. Il expose une doctrine des droits de la conscience errante : tant qu’on croit quelque chose en conscience, on doit être autorisé à entretenir cette croyance. Fonder sa foi sur sa conscience est une conception calviniste fondamentale, contrairement au fait d’accepter une autorité comme règle de sa foi. Bayle a donc quelques raisons de prétendre que son analyse est conforme aux conceptions de Calvin et de ses partisans.

    Mais il soutient également l’impossibilité de distinguer les consciences égarées de celles qui ne le sont pas. Par conséquent, toutes les conceptions doivent être tolérées. Cette perspective est plus radicale que celle de John Locke puisque, dans le premier livre de son Commentaire philosophique, Bayle juge tolérables toutes les conceptions philosophiques et religieuses. Dans le deuxième volume, il se heurte aux croyances qui impliquent la destruction des autres. Si une conscience égarée en vient à croire que toutes les personnes rousses devraient être éliminées, doit-on lui permettre d’entretenir cette croyance et d’agir en conséquence ? La position de Bayle est très proche de celle qui sera envisagée par John Stuart Mill un siècle et demi plus tard : toutes les pensées peuvent être tolérées mais pas toutes les actions. Et si les pensées conduisent à des actions, il peut être nécessaire de poser certaines restrictions sociales et publiques. Bayle a commencé à élaborer une sorte de morale naturelle positive, qui doit être protégée contre ceux qui pourraient vouloir la détruire. Cette idée apparaît avec force dans une affirmation qu’il n’a eu de cesse de soutenir : une société d’athées pourrait être plus morale que toutes les sociétés chrétiennes, qui furent, de l’Antiquité à nos jours, peuplées d’individus malfaisants, corrompus, sexuellement dépravés, menteurs et tricheurs. Telle qu’il la présente, l’histoire du christianisme renvoie l’image terrible d’une profonde inhumanité de l’homme envers l’homme. Et, telle qu’il la dépeint dans son article sur le roi David, la société religieuse de l’Israël antique est, à certains égards, encore pire.

    Comme un complément à cette thèse, Bayle discute de quelques athées, dont Diagoras et Spinoza, qui ont mené des vies exemplaires, aidant leurs semblables sans montrer aucun signe du terrible comportement des individus religieux. L’article sur Spinoza est de loin le plus long du Dictionnaire. Il y a beaucoup à apprendre sur le véritable message qu’y exprime Bayle, qui s’est donné beaucoup de mal pour découvrir les faits réels de la vie du philosophe d’Amsterdam. Il a lu le manuscrit d’une biographie (disparue depuis), interrogé les personnes ayant connu Spinoza et remis en question son hagiographie. Un ouvrage circulant à l’époque, La Vie de M. Spinoza (attribué à un huguenot du cercle de Spinoza, Jean-Maximilien Lucas), présente une biographie du philosophe sur le modèle de la vie des saints. Deux éléments sont supposés révéler la profondeur de sa spiritualité : avoir décliné un poste à la grande université de Heidelberg au motif que, s’il avait exprimé ses positions, l’université aurait subi des pressions pour le faire taire, ce qu’il aurait refusé au nom de sa liberté de conscience ; ensuite, alors qu’il est accusé d’être en contact avec le prince de Condé (grand ennemi de la République néerlandaise pour avoir conquis les Pays-Bas en 1672 pour Louis XIV), avoir refusé de répondre à son invitation au motif d’être trop occupé à philosopher pour s’occuper des affaires du monde.

    Sur le poste à Heidelberg, Bayle retrouve la trace de personnes impliquées dans l’affaire, selon qui le « noble » refus de Spinoza vient après que l’offre a été suspendue, les autorités ayant été dans l’intervalle mises en garde à son propos. Concernant l’invitation de Condé, Bayle retrouve des témoins, dont un libraire faisant commerce en face des quartiers du prince à Utrecht, où il aurait vu entrer Spinoza. Immobilisé pendant six semaines par une jambe cassée, Condé avait fait chercher Spinoza parmi d’autres gens intelligents avec qui converser. Ainsi le chirurgien du prince rapporte-t-il à Bayle avoir vu Spinoza venir chaque jour. De plus, dans l’édition anglaise de la biographie de Condé rédigée par Pierre Coste, l’ami de Bayle et secrétaire de Locke, il est clairement affirmé que Spinoza a rendu visite au prince. En outre, même si Spinoza a toujours raconté ne pas avoir rencontré Condé, il serait apparemment revenu d’Utrecht avec beaucoup de cadeaux. Enfin, selon Pierre Desmaizeaux, l’éditeur de Bayle, qui a rencontré des membres de l’entourage du prince, celui-ci aurait offert à Spinoza un poste à Paris, dont le philosophe néerlandais aurait discuté avec des amis avant de finalement décider de ne pas accepter l’offre.

    Tout en cherchant à détruire l’image de Spinoza fondée sur ces « preuves » de « noblesse »7, Bayle le présente comme une personne au-delà de tout reproche, un athée n’ayant jamais commis de faute morale. Si sa vie est bien celle d’un athée, elle est pour Bayle empreinte de pureté et de sainteté. Et ce qu’il loue le plus chez Spinoza est d’être le premier penseur moderne à faire de l’athéisme un système.

    Bayle transmettra son scepticisme aux avant-gardes du XVIIIe siècle et ses volumes in-folio seront étudiés par la plupart des philosophes et des théologiens. Le plus sceptique d’entre eux, l’écossais David Hume, partira écrire, dans le collège des jésuites de La Flèche, ce chef-d’œuvre sceptique qu’est son Traité de la nature humaine avec huit volumes de Bayle dans ses bagages. Il se penchera sur leurs arguments, les modernisera et, surtout, les extraira de leur cadre théologique. Bayle affirme détruire la raison pour faire place à la foi. Après avoir présenté une série d’arguments sceptiques dans ses Dialogues sur la religion naturelle, Hume fera déclarer à son porte-parole que, pour un homme de lettres, avoir une philosophie sceptique est la première et plus essentielle étape pour devenir un vrai chrétien. Aucun des contemporains de Hume ne prendra cette confession de foi au sérieux. Et ceux qui le connaissent sont sûrs qu’il ne deviendra jamais un vrai chrétien mais plutôt, comme ils le qualifient, « le grand infidèle ». Le scepticisme va alors se dégager du cadre théologique des siècles passés pour devenir une pure critique de la raison humaine.

    1. Les idées de Jurieu à propos du Commentaire philosophique et leur rôle dans sa controverse avec Bayle apparaissent dans Apologie du Sr. Jurieu (La Haye, 1691), Courte revue des maximes de morale et principes de religion de l’auteur des pensées diverses sur les comètes, & de la critique générale sur l’histoire du Calvinisme du P. Maimbourg (n.p., n.d., sans doute 1691) et dans Le Philosophe de Rotterdam (Amsterdam, 1706).

    2. Sur Newton, lire les articles de Bayle «Leucippus» (rem. G) et « Zénon d’Élée » (rem. 1). Locke est discuté dans plusieurs articles, spéc. « Dicaerchus » (rem. M), « Perrot » (rem. L), « Rorarius » (rem. K) et « Zénon d’Élée » (rem. 1). (Dictionnaire historique et critique, Rotterdam, 1697).

    5. Des commentateurs comme Antony McKenna et Gianluca Mori ont donné de Bayle l’image d’un sceptique complet en épistémologie et en métaphysique et d’un moraliste dans les affaires humaines – position qu’on observe déjà chez Montaigne, Charron et La Mothe Le Vayer. Lire, par exemple, « Le retour des sceptiques », dossier Le Magazine littéraire (janvier 2001, n° 394) et Élisabeth Labrousse, Pierre Bayle, La Haye, 1963.

    7. Les efforts de Bayle pour détruire l’hagiographie de Spinoza n’ont toutefois pas été (selon Desmaizeaux) couronnés de succès : le refus du poste d’Heidelberg comme la non-visite au prince de Condé continuent d’être racontés dans les livres d’histoire malgré les tentatives de Bayle pour les réfuter. Voir Pierre Desmaizeaux in Pierre Bayle, Lettres de M. Bayle, Amsterdam, 1729.

    Dmitry Orlov, "The 5 Stages of Economic Collapse"

    "The 5 Stages of Economic Collapse"
    by Dmitry Orlov

    "Elizabeth Kübler-Ross defined the five stages of coming to terms with grief and tragedy as denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance, and applied it quite successfully to various forms of catastrophic personal loss, such as death of a loved one, sudden end to one's career, and so forth. Several thinkers, notably James Howard Kunstler and, more recently John Michael Greer, have pointed out that the Kübler-Ross model is also quite terrifyingly accurate in reflecting the process by which society as a whole (or at least the informed and thinking parts of it) is reconciling itself to the inevitability of a discontinuous future, with our institutions and life support systems undermined by a combination of resource depletion, catastrophic climate change, and political impotence.

    But so far, little has been said specifically about the finer structure of these discontinuities. Instead, there is to be found continuum of subjective judgments, ranging from "a severe and prolonged recession" (the prediction we most often read in the financial press), to Kunstler's evocative but unscientific-sounding "clusterf**k," to the ever-popular "Collapse of Western Civilization," painted with an ever-wider brush-stroke.

    For those of us who have already gone through all of the emotional stages of reconciling ourselves to the prospect of social and economic upheaval, it might be helpful to have a more precise terminology that goes beyond such emotionally charged phrases. Defining a taxonomy of collapses might prove to be more than just an intellectual exercise: based on our abilities and circumstances, some of us may be able to specifically plan for a certain stage of collapse as a temporary, or even permanent, stopping point.

    Even if society at the current stage of socioeconomic complexity will no longer be possible, and even if, as Tainter points in his "Collapse of Complex Societies," there are circumstances in which collapse happens to be the correct adaptive response, it need not automatically cause a population crash, with the survivors disbanding into solitary, feral humans dispersed in the wilderness and subsisting miserably. Collapse can be conceived of as an orderly, organized retreat rather than a rout.

    For instance, the collapse of the Soviet Union - our most recent and my personal favorite example of an imperial collapse - did not reach the point of political disintegration of the republics that made it up, although some of them (Georgia, Moldova) did lose some territory to separatist movements. And although most of the economy shut down for a time, many institutions, including the military, public utilities, and public transportation, continued to function throughout. And although there was much social dislocation and suffering, society as a whole did not collapse, because most of the population did not lose access to food, housing, medicine, or any of the other survival necessities. The command-and-control structure of the Soviet economy largely decoupled the necessities of daily life from any element of market psychology, associating them instead with physical flows of energy and physical access to resources. Thus situation, as I argue in my forthcoming book, Reinventing Collapse, allowed the Soviet population to inadvertently achieve a greater level of collapse-preparedness than is currently possible in the United States.

    Having given a lot of thought to both the differences and the similarities between the two superpowers - the one that has collapsed already, and the one that is collapsing as I write this - I feel ready to attempt a bold conjecture, and define five stages of collapse, to serve as mental milestones as we gauge our own collapse-preparedness and see what can be done to improve it.

    Rather than tying each phase to a particular emotion, as in the Kübler-Ross model, the proposed taxonomy ties each of the five collapse stages to the breaching of a specific level of trust, or faith, in the status quo. Although each stage causes physical, observable changes in the environment, these can be gradual, while the mental flip is generally quite swift. It is something of a cultural universal that nobody (but a real fool) wants to be the last fool to believe in a lie.

    The 5 Stages of Collapse:

    Stage 1: Financial collapse. Faith in "business as usual" is lost. The future is no longer assumed resemble the past in any way that allows risk to be assessed and financial assets to be guaranteed. Financial institutions become insolvent; savings are wiped out, and access to capital is lost.

    Stage 2: Commercial collapse. Faith that "the market shall provide" is lost. Money is devalued and/or becomes scarce, commodities are hoarded, import and retail chains break down, and widespread shortages of survival necessities become the norm.

    Stage 3:  Political collapse. Faith that "the government will take care of you" is lost. As official attempts to mitigate widespread loss of access to commercial sources of survival necessities fail to make a difference, the political establishment loses legitimacy and relevance.

    Stage 4: Social collapse. Faith that "your people will take care of you" is lost. As local social institutions, be they charities, community leaders, or other groups that rush in to fill the power vacuum, run out of resources or fail through internal conflict.

    Stage 5: Cultural collapse. Faith in the goodness of humanity is lost. People lose their capacity for "kindness, generosity, consideration, affection, honesty, hospitality, compassion, charity" (Turnbull, The Mountain People). Families disband and compete as individuals for scarce resources. The new motto becomes "May you die today so that I die tomorrow" (Solzhenitsyn, “The Gulag Archipelago”).

    Although many people imagine collapse to be a sort of elevator that goes to the sub-basement (our Stage 5) no matter which button you push, no such automatic mechanism can be discerned. Rather, driving us all to Stage 5 will require that a concerted effort be made at each of the intervening stages. That all the players seem poised to make just such an effort may give this collapse the form a classical tragedy - a conscious but inexorable march to perdition - rather than a farce ("Oops! Ah, here we are, Stage 5." - "So, whom do we eat first?" - "Me! I am delicious!") Let us sketch out this process.

    Financial collapse, as we are are currently observing it, consists of two parts. One is that a part of the general population is forced to move, no longer able to afford the house they bought based on inflated assessments, forged income numbers, and foolish expectations of endless asset inflation. Since, technically, they should never have been allowed to buy these houses, and were only able to do so because of financial and political malfeasance, this is actually a healthy development. The second part consists of men in expensive suits tossing bundles of suddenly worthless paper up in the air, ripping out their remaining hair, and (some of us might uncharitably hope) setting themselves on fire on the steps of the Federal Reserve. They, to express it in their own vernacular, "f**ked up," and so this is also just as it should be.

    The government response to this could be to offer some helpful homilies about "the wages of sin" and to open a few soup kitchens and flop houses in a variety of locations including Wall Street. The message would be: "You former debt addicts and gamblers, as you say, 'f**ked up,' and so this will really hurt for a long time. We will never let you anywhere near big money again. Get yourselves over to the soup kitchen, and bring your own bowl, because we don't do dishes." This would result in a stable Stage 1 collapse - the Second Great Depression.

    However, this is unlikely, because in the US the government happens to be debt addict and gambler number one. As individuals, we may have been as virtuous as we wished, but the government will have still run up exorbitant debts on our behalf. Every level of government, from local municipalities and authorities, which need the financial markets to finance their public works and public services, to the federal government, which relies on foreign investment to finance its endless wars, is addicted to public debt. They know they cannot stop borrowing, and so they will do anything they can to keep the game going for as long as possible.

    About the only thing the government currently seems it fit to do is extend further credit to those in trouble, by setting interest rates at far below inflation, by accepting worthless bits of paper as collateral and by pumping money into insolvent financial institutions. This has the effect of diluting the dollar, further undermining its value, and will, in due course, lead to hyperinflation, which is bad enough in any economy, but is especially serious for one dominated by imports. As imports dry up and the associated parts of the economy shut down, we pass Stage 2: Commercial Collapse.

    As businesses shut down, storefronts are boarded up and the population is left largely penniless and dependent on FEMA and charity for survival, the government may consider what to do next. It could, for example, repatriate all foreign troops and set them to work on public works projects designed to directly help the population. It could promote local economic self-sufficiency, by establishing community-supported agriculture programs, erecting renewable energy systems, and organizing and training local self-defence forces to maintain law and order. The Army Corps of Engineers could be ordered to bulldoze buildings erected on former farmland around city centers, return the land to cultivation, and to construct high-density solar-heated housing in urban centers to resettle those who are displaced. In the interim, it could reduce homelessness by imposing a steep tax on vacant residential properties and funneling the proceeds into rent subsidies for the indigent. With plenty of luck, such measures may be able to reverse the trend, eventually providing for a restoration of pre-Stage 2 conditions.

    This may or may not be a good plan, but in any case it is rather unrealistic, because the United States, being so deeply in debt, will be forced to accede to the wishes of its foreign creditors, who own a lot of national assets (land, buildings, and businesses) and who would rather see a dependent American population slaving away working off their debt than a self-sufficient one, conveniently forgetting that they have mortgaged their children's futures to pay for military fiascos, big houses, big cars, and flat-screen television sets. Thus, a much more likely scenario is that the federal government (knowing who butters their bread) will remain subservient to foreign financial interests. It will impose austerity conditions, maintain law and order through draconian means, and aid in the construction of foreign-owned factory towns and plantations. As people start to think that having a government may not be such a good idea, conditions become ripe for Stage 3.

    If Stage 1 collapse can be observed by watching television, observing Stage 2 might require a hike or a bicycle ride to the nearest population center, while Stage 3 collapse is more than likely to be visible directly through one's own living-room window, which may or may not still have glass in it. After a significant amount of bloodletting, much of the country becomes a no-go zone for the remaining authorities. Foreign creditors decide that their debts might not be repaid after all, cut their losses and depart in haste. The rest of the world decides to act as if there is no such place as The United States - because "nobody goes there any more." So as not to lose out on the entertainment value, the foreign press still prints sporadic fables about Americans who eat their young, much as they did about Russia following the Soviet collapse. A few brave American expatriates who still come back to visit bring back amazing stories of a different kind, but everyone considers them eccentric and perhaps a little bit crazy.

    Stage 3 collapse can sometimes be avoided by the timely introduction of international peacekeepers and through the efforts of international humanitarian NGOs. In the aftermath of a Stage 2 collapse, domestic authorities are highly unlikely to have either the resources or the legitimacy, or even the will, to arrest the collapse the dynamic and reconstitute themselves in a way that the population would accept.

    As stage 3 collapse runs its course, the power vacuum left by the now defunct federal, state and local government is filled by a variety of new power structures. Remnants of former law enforcement and military, urban gangs, ethnic mafias, religious cults and wealthy property owners all attempt to build their little empires on the ruins of the big one, fighting each other over territory and access to resources. This is the age of Big Men: charismatic leaders, rabble-rousers, ruthless Macchiavelian princes and war lords. In the luckier places, they find it to their common advantage to pool their resources and amalgamate into some sort of legitimate local government, while in the rest their jostling for power leads to a spiral of conflict and open war.

    Stage 4 collapse occurs when society becomes so disordered and impoverished that it can no longer support the Big Men, who become smaller and smaller, and eventually fade from view. Society fragments into extended families and small tribes of a dozen or so families, who find it advantageous to band together for mutual support and defense. This is the form of society that has existed over some 98.5% of humanity's existence as a biological species, and can be said to be the bedrock of human existence. Humans can exist at this level of organization for thousands, perhaps millions of years. Most mammalian species go extinct after just a few million years, but, for all we know, Homo Sapiens still have a million or two left.

    If pre-collapse society is too atomized, alienated and individualistic to form cohesive extended families and tribes, or if its physical environment becomes so disordered and impoverished that hunger and starvation become widespread, then Stage 5 collapse becomes likely. At this stage, a simpler biological imperative takes over, to preserve the life of the breeding couples. Families disband, the old are abandoned to their own devices, and children are only cared for up to age 3. All social unity is destroyed, and even the couples may disband for a time, preferring to forage on their own and refusing to share food. This is the state of society described by the anthropologist Colin Turnbull in his book "The Mountain People." If society prior to Stage 5 collapse can be said to be the historical norm for humans, Stage 5 collapse brings humanity to the verge of physical extinction.

    As we can easily imagine, the default is cascaded failure: each stage of collapse can easily lead to the next, perhaps even overlapping it. In Russia, the process was arrested just past Stage 3: there was considerable trouble with ethnic mafias and even some warlordism, but government authority won out in the end. In my other writings, I go into a lot of detail in describing the exact conditions that inadvertently made Russian society relatively collapse-proof. Here, I will simply say that these ingredients are not currently present in the United States.

    While attempting to arrest collapse at Stage 1 and Stage 2 would probably be a dangerous waste of energy, it is probably worth everyone's while to dig in their heels at Stage 3, definitely at Stage 4, and it is quite simply a matter of physical survival to avoid Stage 5. In certain localities - those with high population densities, as well as those that contain dangerous nuclear and industrial installations - avoiding Stage 3 collapse is rather important, to the point of inviting foreign troops and governments in to maintain order and avoid disasters. Other localities may be able to prosper indefinitely at Stage 3, and even the most impoverished environments may be able to support a sparse population subsisting indefinitely at Stage 4.

    Although it is possible to prepare directly for surviving Stage 5, this seems like an altogether demoralizing thing to attempt. Preparing to survive Stages 3 and 4 may seem somewhat more reasonable, while explicitly aiming for Stage 3 may be reasonable if you plan to become one of the Big Men. Be that as it may, I must leave such preparations as an exercise for the reader. My hope is that these definitions of specific stages of collapse will enable a more specific and fruitful discussion than the one currently dominated by such vague and ultimately nonsensical terms as "the collapse of Western civilization.”

              

    ‘Everyone needs to do more’ to help suffering Venezuelans, says UN Emergency Relief Coordinator

     Cache   
    INTERNATIONAL, 6 November 2019, Humanitarian Aid - “Ordinary women, men and children face overwhelming challenges” just to survive in Venezuela today, UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Mark Lowcock said on Wednesday in the capital, Caracas.

    “Millions cannot afford the bare minimum of food, water, and health care”, the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs continued, adding that “the situation continues to deteriorate”.

    Most Venezuelans have been affected by a years-long political and economic crisis in what was formerly Latin America’s wealthiest nation, leading to a major shrinking of the economy, fueled by hyperinflation.

    Around 4.5 million have left the country, the vast majority to other nations in the region, marking the largest exodus in South American history, according to UN figures: “Too many people are risking perilous journeys every day, facing sexual exploitation, trafficking and abuse”, said Mr. Lowcock.

    “I have seen myself how the health system is on the verge of collapse with many hospitals lacking the most basic water and electricity infrastructure…Hospital patients, many of whom are already critically ill, are at high risk of losing their lives from new infections they are acquiring while they are in hospital, because basic cleaning and disinfection cannot be done”. 

    And a lack of medicines and medical care workers only exacerbates the situation, added the UN relief chief.

    “Preventable diseases, including malaria and diphtheria are back with a vengeance”, he said, citing people with chronic health conditions, pregnant and nursing women, infants and those living with disabilities as being “among the most vulnerable”. 

    Having visited Jose Gregorio Hernandez hospital, the UN official learned that medicines are scarce; power outages mean that only one-fifth of the hospital has electricity; and water runs only two days a week, often through rusty and broken pipes oozing a “filthy stench that lingers throughout”. 

    Over the last year, UN-supported aid programmes have made a difference by:

    • Helping to vaccinate 8.5 million children against measles. 
    • Supporting some 975,000 people with medicines in 109 health facilities. 
    • Distributing food and provided agricultural support to 50,000 people.
    • Ensuring that 350,000 people have access to safe water. 
    • Providing education support to over 160,000 students. 
    • Providing nutritional support to over 100,000 children and pregnant and nursing mothers. 
    • Supplying 35,000 people with information and support to access protection services.

    “Some hospital workers, I was told, spend more than their monthly salary just getting to work”, he asserted.
    Aid assistance

    During meetings with senior Government officials and members of the National Assembly, he observed that despite the political divisions, there was “a common will to address the humanitarian situation”, with both endorsing the Humanitarian Response Plan developed this year by the UN and partners to address the most dire needs of Venezuelans. 

    Underscoring that “only a political solution can end the suffering”, Mr. Lowcock said that in the meantime, the UN “will continue to provide humanitarian aid to the most vulnerable in accordance with our principles of impartiality, independence and neutrality”. 

    “I have received firm commitments that the implementation of the plan will be supported, to the benefit of vulnerable Venezuelans across the country”, he affirmed. “All parties must respect our principled humanitarian approach and not manipulate the needs-based assistance”. 

    Stressing that “human suffering is not a political weapon”, he said continued monitoring of assistance delivery would safeguard its transparency “in accordance with independent assessments”. 

    Funding shortfall

    Mr. Lowcock thanked those who have contributed financial resources for UN-supported humanitarian activities, noting that more than $155 million has been received this year. But he said the $223 million Humanitarian Response Plan “remains under-resourced and the biggest constraint to delivering humanitarian assistance remains funding”.

    “Everyone needs to do more”, he maintained, pointing out that next month provisional plans for the UN-supported humanitarian response in Venezuela next year is due to be published. “Substantially more financial resources will be needed, and we will seek additional funding from donors”.

     “We will need to find a way to unlock Venezuelan resources to contribute more to humanitarian action” and “place a greater priority on reducing the immediate suffering of the people of this country”, he concluded.


              

    Mathematical theory of scattering resonances

     Cache   
    Scattering resonances generalize bound states/eigenvalues for systems in which energy can scatter to infinity. A typical resonance has a rate of oscillation (just as a bound state does) and a rate of decay. Although the notion is intrinsically dynamical, an elegant mathematical formulation comes from considering meromorphic continuations of Green's functions. The poles of these meromorphic continuations capture physical information by identifying the rate of oscillation with the real part of a pole and the rate of decay with its imaginary part. An example from mathematics is given by the zeros of the Riemann zeta function: they are, essentially, the resonances of the Laplacian on the modular surface. The Riemann hypothesis then states that the decay rates for the modular surface are all either 0 or \frac14. An example from physics is given by quasi-normal modes of black holes which appear in long-time asymptotics of gravitational waves. This book concentrates mostly on the simplest case of scattering by compactly supported potentials but provides pointers to modern literature where more general cases are studied. It also presents a recent approach to the study of resonances on asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds. The last two chapters are devoted to semiclassical methods in the study of resonances. This is an up to date account of modern mathematical scattering theory with an emphasis on the deep interplay between the location of the scattering poles or resonances, and the underlying dynamics and geometry. The masterful exposition reflects the authors' significant roles in shaping this very active field. A must read for researchers and students working in scattering theory or related areas. --Peter Sarnak, Institute for Advanced Study This is a very broad treatise of the modern theory of scattering resonances, beautifully written with a wealth of
