Charging Forward: Battery Power Projects Are Surging in Vermont

 Cache   
Any doubts that Jennifer Hannux had about the two pricey Tesla Powerwall batteries in her rural Hartland home drained away over the Halloween weekend. Strong winds and flooding knocked out power to more than 100,000 Green Mountain Power customers, including those in her neighborhood. But the Hannux family's lights stayed on. So did their refrigerator. And their hot water heater. "For a power outage, it was definitely a pretty pleasant one," Hannux said. The lights also continued to burn for another 1,100 Green Mountain Power customers who otherwise would have been in the dark, because lithium-ion Powerwalls in their homes provided instant backup power. The utility tells customers that a pair of Powerwalls can supply electricity to a typical home for up to 24 hours. During the most recent outage, some customers needed the systems only for a few hours until service was restored. The Hannux family, who cut back on usage and also tapped a portable generator to power some devices, drew on theirs for 55 hours. One GMP customer in South Royalton used a Powerwall for 82 hours, according to the utility. GMP began installing and renting the batteries to customers for just $15 a month in a $15.5 million pilot program that began in 2017. The batteries had performed during blackouts many times since, but never on such a scale. "They've been amazing," said Josh Castonguay, GMP's chief innovation officer. "This Halloween storm solidified how well they perform." "I would love to get them in every home," Castonguay added. That's not going to happen anytime soon, in part because the utility has agreed to limit new Powerwall installations to 500 customers per year for now. But battery storage is nevertheless charging to the forefront of Vermont's vibrant renewable energy economy. While utilities are pushing the in-home battery packs, developers have begun to incorporate shipping-container-size batteries into solar projects, storing energy for use when the sun goes down. And investors are building stand-alone battery projects to rent to utilities in the risky game of "peak shaving" — drawing power from batteries instead of the regional grid when demand and costs are highest. "Things are happening very quickly right now," said Matt Kakley, spokesperson for ISO New England, the Massachusetts-based organization that manages the regional power grid. "People are very excited about participating in the [energy] storage market, and we see storage playing an increasingly big role in the…
          

HBA Cautions Against 66% WES SDC Hike

 Cache   

As part of its ongoing methodological update project, the Water Environment Services (WES) Advisory Board voted earlier this month to advance a 5-tier system development charge (SDC) schedule. The proposed adjustments to SDCs are scaled according to square footage and based on statistically corresponding relationships amongst dwelling size, occupancy, and indoor winter water consumption data.

In addition to the proposed 5-tier SDC methodology, the WES Advisory Board is evaluating a 66% SDC increase from $7,850 to $13,019 per equivalent dwelling unit. This follows WES’s 125% increase to the wholesale sewer rate for portions of the district, effective August 1, 2019. The rate hike brought WES’s two rate zones into equilibrium based on a consolidated capital improvement plan. At the most recent advisory committee meeting, HBA emphasized the positive economic impacts of growth and explained how another SDC increase would severely overburden development in cities that just this year experienced a substantial SDC increase. While HBA acknowledges the value of SDCs in providing infrastructure to serve new customers, we encouraged WES to weigh the relative impacts to both the ratepayer and development when considering options to encourage housing production during a regional housing crisis.

HBA encourages developers, builders, and affiliate business owners in the WES district to join one of the December policy forums on the WES rules and standards project. The forums will cover current proposed fiscal and technical policy updates and include breakout sessions on regulatory changes and requirements, as well as changes to the development review and approval processes. The proposed fiscal and regularly policies will go before the Clackamas County Board of County Commissioners in Spring 2020. To weigh in on the proposed fiscal policies and to learn about HBA’s role on the WES Advisory Committee, contact Roseann Johnson at roseannj@hbapdx.org.

In an Unprecedented Win, HBA Convinces Tualatin to Dramatically Revise BLI

 Cache   

HBA members have for years doubted the veracity of local buildable lands inventories (BLIs) that cities use to determine their existing capacity to support new housing. As part of the Tualatin 2040 project, HBA served on the city’s Technical Advisory Committee and worked with local stakeholders to develop and advance pro-housing strategies. Pursuant to Metro’s 2040 Household Distributive Forecast, Tualatin must ensure that developers can build 1,014 new housing units within city boundaries over the next two decades. In order to determine where these units will go, Tualatin produced a BLI. However, due to mapping irregularities, the city improperly identified eleven parcels as vacant or partially vacant, despite the fact that they collectively contained over 800 units of for-sale, rental, and assisted living housing. HBA was able to uncover these irregularities though a detailed parcel level analysis and ground truthing. Once uncovered, we worked with city staff to remove the eleven parcels from the BLI, which resulted in a 37% reduction in Tualatin’s available housing capacity. With this amended BLI, the City Council is now better positioned to truly understand Tualatin’s critical housing needs. To learn more about our work on BLI’s throughout the region, contact Ezra Hammer at ezrah@hbapdx.org.

Slatiny potok

Nouzová kolonie Na Slatinách mezi Michlí, Spořilovem, Bohdalcem a Novými Vršovicemi v Praze 10 byla za první republiky (podle zdrojů na internetu) skoro jako samostatná vesnice. Byla založena v roce 1924 hlavně pro legionáře, kteří s vraceli po válce z Ruska přes Vladivostok a pro dělníky. kteří stavěli Michelskou plynárnu. Kolonie měla dva koloniály, tři družstevní konzumy „Včela“, osm hospod, holiče, zmrzlináře, mandl, mlékárnu, pekárnu, řeznictví a snad dokonce biograf. Ve slavných dobách byl provozován na Slatinách i fotbalový klub Union XIV a ochotnícký spolek. Divadelní sál sídlil v hospodě U Řeháků, kde bylo i nouzové kino. Od domkařských Záběhlic dnes odděluje jedinou právoplatnou nouzovou kolonii v Praze Slatinský potok, nebo spíš potůček, který u budovy elektrárny padá do výpusti. Z jedné strany hučí Jižní spojka, z druhé strany projíždějí vlaky na seřazovací nákladní nádraží za Michlelskou plynárnou. Směrem k dálnici je ve svahu ukryt Husův kámen, o kterém se mi nepodařilo zjistit, jestli ho tam Hus dovalil sám, nebo mu někdo pomáhal.

Nový byt 2+kk v Michli stojí minimálně 4, ale spíš 6 milionů, statisticky průměrná mzda v Praze je letos 42 297 Kč, většina Pražanů na tuto částku nikdy nedosáhne. Pronájem 2+kk v Michli stojí zhruba 14 - 16 tisíc měsíčně, v novostavbě klidně 25 000. Nouzové kolonie by mohly v Praze s přispěním magistrátu znovu prosperovat a přispět k řešení bezdomovectví. Nicméně autoři Metropolitního plánu s ničím podobným nepočítají, naopak všude porostou developerské projekty a kondominia pro ty bohatší.

Slatina Creek

According to the Internet, the Slatina colony in Prague 10 had during the First Republic the character of an independent community. There were two groceries, three Včela cooperative shops, eight pubs, a barber, an ice cream shop, an laundry, a dairy, a bakery, a butcher, and a cinema. In these glorious times there were football and amateur theater clubs in Slatiny. The theater operated in the pub U Řeháků, where there was also a cinema. The only existing temporary colony is separated from Záběhlice by the Slatina Creek, or rather by a stream, which falls into an outlet near the power plant.

Как просить, чтобы вам сделали реферрал к IT гигантам

 Cache   

Уже некоторое количество людей обратилось ко мне с просьбой зареферралить их (по емейлу, указанному в моем профиле), и я могу сделать определенные выводы и дать рекомендации для тех, кто раздумывает над этим.

Основной посыл — сделайте домашнюю работу сами. Не грузите человека, которого просите, ненужной работой. Если вы начинаете меня грузить фигней, которая может быть объяснена только вашей ленью, наше общение на этом закончится.

Пример, от которого я до сих пор х.ю, хотя он несколько о другом. Ко мне когда-то написал человек с просьбой о менторстве относительно подготовки к it-гигантам. На моей вопрос читал ли он статью Сергея Семы на доу о подготовке в гугл чувак мне ответил: «нет, можешь ли прислать ссылку». Я отправил lmgtfy.com/...​?q=сергей сема доу google и на этом наше общение закончилось

Итак, советы.

1. Пишите ваши достижения в резюме
Не пишите: пилю код от рассвета до забора, пишите чего вы достигли. Наличие измеримых метрик значительно улучшает ваши шансы (улучшил на x%, ускорил на z%, благодаря автоматизации уволил команду мануальщиков :)"

Формула, в общем
by doing A improved B by C metric that led to/allowed D

2. Отформатируйте резюме по стандартам страны и компаний, в которые собеседуетесь
Неформальное правило для американских it-гигантов — одна страница на 10 лет опыта. 10й шрифт Arial/Verdana вполне ок. Ваши хобби и семейное положение никому не нужны, а вот волонтерство, если есть, может пригодиться. Проекты и работы должны отсортированы по убыванию даты, начиная с последних. Чем ближе к %now% тем детальнее.Работа в каком-нибудь 2005м может быть описана одной строчкой. Уровень знания английского (или какой там язык нужен в том месте куда вы хотите) указывать не нужно — предполагается что если вы подаете резюме то способны общаться.

3. Вычитайте ваше резюме
Если у вас нет какой-нибудь относительно объективной оценки вашего уровня английского, типа стандартного теста или диплома, обязательно найдите возможность вычитать свое резюме с нейтивом или человеком, который английский знает действительно хорошо. Когда я был на галерах, мое резюме пару раз вычитывали кастомеры с которыми были хорошие, дружеские отношения :)

Я как правило просматриваю что мне присылают и иногда могу прокомментировать и дать совет, под настроение — и очень часто в резюме я вижу просто п..ц.

4. Сразу присылайте позиции, которые вам интересны
Сразу находите что вам интересно на сайтах компаний, по ключевым словам, и присылайте коды или ссылки на позиции. У меня в команде лично может и не быть позиции, но в больших конторах они всегда есть. Не просите меня искать для вас работу если вы не мой друг

вам пригодятся: careers.microsoft.com, amazon.jobs и т.д.

4.1. Если у вас есть интерес к определенной стране-локации, то фильтруйте сами, на тех же сайтах

4.2 Будьте готовы бить по площадям. Для первого подхода я бы предложил апплаиться (и искать) где-то 5-7 позиций.

5 Правильно оценивайте левелы в компаниях и себя.

Пример Амазона. Это не строгое правило, и я видел парня который стал сеньором в Амазоне за 4 года после универа (пришел сразу в Амазон), но это скорее исключение.

0-4 лет опыта — будут рассматривать на L4
3-8 лет опыта — будут рассматривать на L5
7+ лет опыта — будут рассматривать на L6, но могут и на L5 позвать

Хотя если у вас крутое резюме то, конечно, оно будет значить намного больше чем те даты что я написал выше.

Для оценки тайтла можно воспользоваться www.levels.fyi/...​k&track=Software Engineer

Senior Amazon = Senior Google >= ( Principal Oracle ~ Staff Software Linkedin)

23-х летнего сеньора с 2мя годами опыта на галере после универа на тот-же L5 в Амазон могут и не позвать (но это не точно).

6. Software Engineer > (Web | Frontend | Ios | Android developer)
Не везде это так, но как правило тайтл Software Engineer ценнее чем XXX developer, вплоть до того что если вы сеньор frontent и захотите свитчнуться в software engineer’а внутри компании то вам будет ждать понижение на левел.

7. Если у вас есть разрешение работать в стране, отметьте это в резюме отдельной строчкой
Упрощает жизнь всем

8. Professional references
Советую сразу договориться и быть готовым назвать знакомых, которые, в случае чего, смогут написать о вас хороший отзыв. Отзыв должен быть именно хорошим, так что не будьте редиской на работе.

Разные мелочи

1. Если у вас емейл в духе windowsmustdie@gmail.com, sexgod1999@ то лучше его сменить на что-нибудь более спокойное, в духе имя_фамилия, не зависимо от вашего отношения к windows и сексу с ним

2. Ваша галера, и один товарищ с этого форума, могут говорить вам что угодно, но формула в резюме
Software engineer at IT гигант contracted by Галера

вполне ок, хотя на линкедине менеджеры галеры могут и запрещать писать, пока вы работаете на этой галере.

В тех же Microsoft и Google очень много контракторов, и люди здесь понимают какими обязанностями вы там можете заниматься, если вы разработчик.

Это сообщение я буду еще обновлять, когда еще что-нибудь в голову придет.

Удачи в поиске работы и прохождении собеседований. Все написанное выше является моим личным мнением и не отражает мнение моего работодателя.

Ronald Court

 Cache   

Essex Junction - Ronald Alfred Court (Courtemanche), 78, of Essex Junction and formerly, Warren, VT died of prostate cancer on November 24, 2019 at the Respite House in Colchester, VT. Ron came to Vermont in 1970 to ski, fell in love with the state and chose to make his life here. He believed in making a positive difference in the lives of others and became a leader in local service organizations, re-discovered his Christian faith, patriotism and deep love for his family. Ron, born in Springfield, MA on November 18, 1941, was the son of Liberda M. Claing and Roland A. Courtemanche. A graduate of Wellesley (MA) High School, he attended Bucknell University. In 1962, he hitch-hiked around the country, coast to coast and back. Traveling with a sleeping bag and suitcase, he encountered people of many colors, creeds, kindnesses and various prejudices, coming away with a profound insight: we are fundamentally all of one race - the human race. Upon returning, he entered Boston University, worked his way through, graduating in 1965 with a BA in Political Science. He was commissioned a Lieutenant, served in Vietnam and received a Bronze Star and Combat Infantryman’s Badge. He moved to Warren, VT in 1970 transitioning from ‘ski bum’ to real estate broker to real estate developer. When one of his companies went bust, he moved to Essex Junction, joined Pomerleau Real Estate and eventually became an adjunct instructor at Champlain College. He ran for Vermont State Representative from Essex Junction in 1985 and though initially narrowly ‘elected’, he lost the recount, one of the best things he said happened to him. It freed him to think about pursuing something really meaningful in life. In 2005, he founded the Booker T. Washington Society, a non-profit dedicated to “Building Character, Inspiring Lives.” This became his true calling and the most satisfying, yet challenging work of his life. Ron served as an elected Essex Junction Trustee, a Rotarian for over 35 years, a Director of the Burlington Boys and Girls Club, and founding Director/Treasurer of Vermonters for Educational Choice. One of Ron’s greatest joys was knowing his sons had embraced, much earlier than he, the things that really matter: the vision, virtues and values that make for a truly successful life. He spoke often about how grateful he was that Pastor Scott Slocum and several Essex Alliance Church members helped bring him back to Jesus Christ. Ron is survived by his former spouse, Pamela Lerner, his ‘best possible partner’ in raising their twin sons, Roland Alexander Court, of Lake Balboa CA and Barnaby Lerner Court of Raleigh, NC, along with their respective spouses, Jennifer Russell Court and Jamie Katz Court. He leaves 2 beautiful grandsons, James Elliott Court and Samuel Avery Court. He is also survived by his sisters, Sue Luby and husband, Ralph, and Louise Stebbins and husband, John, and nieces and nephews, Steve, Cyndy, Amanda, Josh, Gabriella and their spouses and children. Visiting hours will be at AW Rich Funeral home, 57 Main Street, Essex Junction, on Thursday, December 5, 2019 from 5-8PM. Funeral services will be held on December 6, 2019 at 11AM at Essex Alliance Church, 37 Old Stage Road, Essex Junction, VT 05452 In lieu of flowers, please send gifts in Ron’s memory to the Booker T. Washington Society (btwsociety.org/donate) A gathering of family and friends will be held following the service. He will be interred at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Randolph Center, Vermont at a later date. The family would like to convey sincere and special thanks to Dr. Alexander Fuld and the wonderful caring staff at the VA Medical Hospital in White River Junction and McClure Miller VNA Respite House.

Что купить

 

В России

 

Новинка издательства «Звезда» — настолка «Поселенцы. Наброски империи» / Imperial Settlers: Roll & Write (цена — 1 500 рублей; для партии требуется 1–4 участника 10+ лет и 30 минут свободного времени):

 

«Наброски империи» — это новая самостоятельная игра в полюбившейся вселенной «Поселенцев». Она построена на механике Roll & Write: кидайте кубики, получайте ресурсы и действия, а затем вычёркивайте клетки на листах Империи и Поселения, чтобы возводить здания и получать победные очки».

 

 

GaGa Games перевыпустила карточную настолку «Гоббит» / Gobbit в новом оформлении (цена — 790 рублей; для партии требуется 2–8 участников 6+ лет и 30 минут свободного времени):

 

«Гоббит» выходит на новый уровень.

 

Новая коробка, новые рисунки и даже новое экспертное правило. Знаете ли вы закон джунглей? Он прост: выживает быстрейший.

 

Выкладывайте карты, хлопайте по столу, кричите «гоббит» и, возможно, именно вы станете королем джунглей».

 

 

Первая новинка издательства Hobby World — настолка «Одержимость» (цена — 2 490 рублей; для партии требуется 3–6 участников 12+ лет и 90–180 минут свободного времени):

 

«Маленькому городку угрожают монстры. Но можно ли уничтожить их, если самые опасные демоны таятся в сердцах людей?

 

«Одержимость» — это остросюжетный настольный триллер про путников и авантюристов, пытающихся выжить в мрачном готическом городке. Вам предстоит охотиться на оборотней, оживших мертвецов и призраков с мушкетоном и топором наперевес... и следить за товарищами, которые после захода солнца могут превратиться в одержимых чудовищ.

 

«Одержимость» — полукооперативная игра, то есть игрокам предстоит вместе противостоять монстрам, при этом выполняя тайные цели, которые могут идти вразрез с планами союзников. Игру отличает своеобразный и запоминающийся стиль, большое модульное поле, построенная на сборе колоды механика и 11 пластиковых миниатюр.

 

Способны ли вы остановить силы зла, пережить три зубодробительных сценария и вырваться из проклятого города?»

 

 

Вторая новинка издательства Hobby World — дополнение «Древний ужас: Маски Ньярлатхотепа» / Eldritch Horror: Masks of Nyarlathotep (цена — 2 790 рублей):

 

«Однажды затихшие и, на первый взгляд, никак не связанные друг с другом культы внезапно активизировались и ведут человечество к неминуемой гибели. По всему миру они прикладывают немалые усилия, чтобы открыть Великие Врата и обратить человеческую цивилизацию в руины. Но что за злая сила могла объединить эти доселе разрозненные организации? И сможете ли вы их остановить?

 

«Маски Ньярлатхотепа» — это дополнение для настольной игры «Древний ужас». В нём вы сразитесь за душу человечества с Ползучим Хаосом и его приспешниками.

 

Маски Ньярлатхотепа

 

Классическая кампания из ролевой игры «Зов Ктулху» оживёт на ваших глазах на основе игровой механики «Древнего ужаса».

 

Пройдите весь путь до конца

 

Обратите вспять волну тьмы в новом режиме кампании! Ваши сыщики выступят против целой вереницы Древних, каждый страшнее и опаснее предыдущего.

 

Бросьте вызов оковам судьбы

 

Узнайте всё о происхождении и мотивах каждого из пятидесяти пяти сыщиков «Древнего ужаса» (включая всех сыщиков из предыдущих дополнений) благодаря картам личных историй. Сумеете ли вы исполнить своё предназначение и не поддаться безумию?»

 

 

Дебютный проект издательства Rabbit Hole Games — русская версия настолки Counterfeiters («Махинаторы») — поступил в продажу (цена — 1 590 рублей; для партии требуется 2–4 участника 13+ лет и 30–40 минут свободного времени):

 

«В животном мире царят те же законы, что и у людей. Желание быстрого обогащения толкает самых изворотливых представителей своих видов на хитрые аферы. В Майями — четыре банды — Олени, Крокодилы, Моржи и Журавли — вступают на скользкий путь махинаций с фальшивыми купюрами. Но полиция не дремлет! Следователи идут по следу аферистов, подбираясь к ним всё ближе.

 

Возглавьте одну из банд, сколотите самое большое состояние и скройте его на офшорных счетах банков Карибских островов от назойливого внимания полиции и Крёстного отца мафии.

 

«Махинаторы» — несложная тактическая игра, использующая механику выставления рабочих. При своих компактных размерах, она скрывает в себе достаточную глубину и не раз заставит задуматься над очередным ходом. В ней нет рандома, только просчёт ходов, своих и соперников».

 

 

За рубежом

 

Что происходит и что ждать

 

В России

 

«Лавка игр» подхватила детективную игру «Мортум»:

 

«Итак, живёт-поживает на свете человек по фамилии Сергей Миневич. Работает как все, живёт как все... но есть у него одна страсть — он в свободное от работы время без устали трудится над своей собственной настольной ролевой игрой «Новая эра». И по блеску в глазах видно, что Сергей прям душу вложил в это дело, детище, так сказать.

 

Но спустя некоторое время друзья подсказали ему идею сделать по готовой вселенной ещё и детективную игру, так как они все фанаты игр «Детектив: игра о современном расследовании», «Шерлок Холмс, детектив-консультант» и «Агентство «Время». В общем, как это порой в жизни бывает ребята, сами того не ожидая, сделали хит.

 

Причём мы даже не доиграли партию, чтобы это понять (даже больше скажу — сделали всего несколько ходов).

 

Но почему мы тогда так уверены, что это будущий хит? Да, всё очень просто — всё дело в придуманной им механике и её потенциале, то есть, даже если в период тестирования встретятся какие-то «сырые места» у прототипа, то это нестрашно, так как там уже видно, как примерно нужно «додевелопить», а уж, сами знаете, мы сотрудничаем с прекрасными авторами игр, «додевелопят до блеска» :)

 

Но добавьте к этому нарратив созданного Сергеем мира....

 

... Подождите, я вроде забыл вам рассказать, что это, собственно, за игра! В общем, это будет некий «спин-офф «Карманного Детектива», то есть к детективной игре в отличном сеттинге (а «детективное расследование в средневековом сеттинге» — хорошо звучит, не правда ли?:) добавили персонажей со спец свойствами, «работу с картой мира» — взаимодействие всякое с живностью и локациями (то есть можно какую-то зацепку найти, взломав замок на двери какого-нибудь плохо охраняемого замка или повзаимодействовать с лицами чересчур агрессивных монстров и так далее), но, самое главное, будет прокачка персонажей из дела в дело, то есть добавлен элемент ролевой игры из «базовой «Новой эры», хороший сторителлинг и при этом это она всё ещё остаётся полноценной детективной игрой. Вот)

 

По цене. Конечно, игра будет подороже классической серии «Карманного детектива», так как компонентов будет побольше, но постараемся уместиться в коробку размера «Эпических королевств» и по цене, чтобы тоже было крайне недорого.

 

При этом постараемся их как-то объединить общей канвой, дабы они «тянули» друг друга на мировом рынке, в общем, что-то типа «спин-оффа» сделаем».

 

 

«Лавка игр»: «Друзья, прям ОТЛИЧНАЯ новость!

 

Только вот мы запустили кампанию, как наша команда разработчиков сообщила, что Дело 2 «Карманного детектива» готово и сейчас отправляется к корректорам на проверку.

 

Поэтому ничего нам не мешает оперативно добавить данную игру в кампанию».

 

 

«Эврикус»: «БУКВЫ или революция в алфавите!

 

Не откладывая в долгий ящик, рассказываем о будущей новинке с рабочим названием «Буквы».

 

В алфавите произошла революция. Все буквы взбунтовались и перессорились. Они решили узнать, кто из них главнее всего. Самыми активными подстрекателями оказались 10 букв, которые сошлись в финальной битве. И теперь только вам решать, кто из букв будет достоин победы!

 

Автор: Антон Янкоўскі.

 

Игра выйдет в феврале 2020 года».

 

 

Crowd Games: «Друзья!

 

В первом тираже игры «Корни» (Root) и дополнения «Речное братство» разное скругление углов карт: в типографии использовали другой штамп. Во втором тираже скругление уже одинаковое.

 

Для тех, у кого есть игра из первого тиража и не планируется покупка дополнения, это не имеет никакого значения. У тех, кто покупал игру вместе с дополнением, скругление карт одинаковое (проверьте!). Если вы только планируете купить базовую игру и, возможно, дополнение, с разницей в скруглении углов карт вы уже не столкнётесь.

 

Эта разница имеет значение только в режиме игры с ботом. А если карты в протекторах, то заметить её очень непросто.

 

Тем, кому это важно, мы предложим замену колоды. Мы планируем перепечатать карты базы для владельцев игры из первого тиража и дополнения в начале 2020 года. О готовности мы обязательно сообщим отдельно.

 

Во втором дополнении, файлы которого мы получим от правообладателя только в марте 2020 года, скругление на картах будет таким же, как и в первом дополнении и обновлённой базовой игре.

 

Также в дополнении «Речное братство» на одном из планшетов допущена опечатка: вместо «днём» написано «утром». В 2020 году мы обязательно будем печатать новый тираж этого дополнения и вместе с ним напечатаем дополнительно этот планшет без ошибки. Сообщим о готовности и заменим всем желающим.

 

Приносим свои извинения!»

 

Crowd Games: «НОВОСТИ СО СКЛАДА

Будем держать в курсе, надеемся, это окончательные сроки».

Французское издательство Libellud учредило благотворительный фонд для поддержки молодых людей и системы образования. Сама компания, чья ежегодная выручка оценивается в 10,5 млн долларов, в течение трёх лет добавит в фонд 1,1 млн долларов. Эти инициатива отражает ценности и чувство социальной ответственности компании. Фонд уже работает над двумя проектами: первый нацелен на первокурсников университетов, а второй — на преподавателей с целью разработать инновационные образовательные инструменты.

 

 

Мультимедийная студия из Великобритании Rebellion, которая выпускает видеоигры, телепередачи, книги, комиксы и фильмы, запустила настольное подразделение Rebellion Unplugged. Оно займётся изданием настольных игр и коллекционных продуктов по франшизам из каталога головной компании. Возглавил Rebellion Unplugged Дункан Моллой (Duncan Mollo), ранее отвечавший за настольное направление в Osprey. Дебютным проектом нового издательства станет настолка по видеоигре Sniper Elite. Rebellion Unplugged в декабре 2019 покажет прототип на выставке PAX Unplugged, а в начале 2020 выйдет с проектом на «Кикстартер». (Читайте также: dtf.ru.)

  • Также Ares Games, по данным на сентябрь 2016, продала 45 000 базовых коробок линейки Wings of Glory (с учётом версий по Первой и Второй мировым войнам) и 330 000 единиц дополнительных наборов с миниатюрами и аксессуаров. По данным на сентябрь 2019, количество проданных коробок составило уже 56 500 (и это без учёта Tripods & Triplanes).

NOTE: This Application reflects general recommendations only and local airworthiness agencies’ rulemaking and guidance as well as aircraft manufacturers’ documentation must always be followed. As individual icing situations or aeroplane types/models may require special procedures, this application can never replace the responsibility of the aeroplane operator’s judgement. The responsibility for the correct de-icing/anti-icing of aeroplanes always stays with the operator of the aeroplane. Although great care has been taken by the developer, errors or misprints can occur for which neither the developer nor the FAA/TC (information source) can be held liable. The developer or the FAA/TC (information source) do not accept liability for any damage, personal injury, death or any other negative effect that may result from the use of the information contained in this application as a whole or parts thereof.
Anybody or any organisation using this application and the information contained therein does so at its own risk and responsibility and must check, among other things, for last update available.

What's New

Added search capability for fluids:
- for "all fluids" Subscription in the Hold Over Time Tab

Чёрный экран смерти в Тяжеловато, отчёт об инциденте

 Cache   

25 ноября в 9:10 по Московскому времени вышло обновление приложения Тяжеловато для iOS под версией 1.2.

Релиз привёл к поломке, из-за которой пользователи в течение полутора суток не могли пользоваться приложением. Приложение открывалось на телефонах, но показывало чёрный экран и не реагировало на жесты и перезагрузку.

Устранить проблему полностью у нас не получилось.

26 ноября в 9:05 было подготовлено обновление с частичным исправлением.
В 19:42 оно стало доступно пользователям в магазине.

Предпосылки

Мы используем веб-приложение в качестве ядра и нативные оболочки, как контейнеры для дистрибьюции через магазины. Оболочки мы стали использовать не сразу. Какое-то время после запуска мы работали исключительно в вебе.

Для сохранения веб-версии офлайн на телефоны пользователей мы использовали AppCache. Когда появились оболочки, кодовая база у веб-версии и версий для магазинов осталась одна. В одной из первых версий мы допустили ошибку — AppCache-манифест попал в сборку для магазинов по недосмотру.

Мы удалили AppCache-манифест и ссылки на него в патч-обновлении, следовавшем сразу после первой версии.

Недавнее обновление веб-версии и перевод её с AppCache на ServiceWorker прошли гладко. В обновлении для Android «чёрных экранов смерти» также не появлялось. Тестовая сборка приложения в TestFlight и переход на ней между версиями также не показывали подобных проблем.

Из всего этого мы сделали предположение, что обновление для iOS должно было пройти гладко.

Хронология и анализ

25 ноября в 9:10 по Московскому времени мы запаблишили обновление в AppStore. Обновление должно было использовать старую кодовую базу, а после нажатия кнопки «Сохранить бюджет» — обновить ядро приложения и перейти на новую.

В 9:14 появилась первая жалоба в поддержку на сломанную функциональность: приложение запускалось, но экран был пустым, приложение не реагировало на пользовательский ввод, перезагрузка не помогала. Помогала только переустановка. В течение следующих двух часов появились первые отзывы в AppStore, указывающие на ту же проблему.

В 9:33 мы сделали первое предположение о причине проблемы. Гипотеза заключалась в особенностях работы закэшированных ресурсов, и том, что после обновления мы отказались от использования AppCache, но неправильно очистили кэши после первого обновления.

В 10:06 после разговора с пользователем, который непосредственно пострадал от последствий, гипотеза подтвердилась. Мы начали думать над тем, как исправить ситуацию. Почистить кэши принудительно мы могли только с помощью нативной оболочки.

В 18:39 была подготовлена первая версия с исправлением проблемы. Чтобы удостовериться, что фикс поможет, мы полностью воссоздали релизное окружение предыдущей версии и кэши всех ресурсов.

К 20:21 исправление было протестировано на разных версиях iOS и под разными устройствами. Проблема, казалось, была решена и подготовили обновление к релизу в AppStore.

26 ноября в 0:37 после более тщательной проверки выяснилось, что обновление всё-таки проблему не решает. Принудительное очищение кэшей в оболочке срабатывало не стабильно.

Даные пользователей всё ещё были в сохранности на устройствах, отображались в виджете, но использовать их программно не представлялось возможным.

В 8:43 мы решили больше не рисковать и помочь пользователям обновить приложение вручную.

Нам было известно, что переустановка проблему решала. Однако она же сбрасывала данные и настройки приложения. Мы подготовили обновление, в котором попросили пользователей воспользоваться виджетом и перенести настройки бюджета после переустановки приложения в новую версию.

Инструкция «Что делать дальше»
Экран позора — инструкция «Что делать дальше»

В 9:05 обновление было готово к релизу.

В 11:17 исправление было отправлено в магазин.

В 18:02 приложение прошло ревью магазина.

В 19:47 исправление стало доступно пользователям.

В 19:51 появилось первое сообщение от пользователей, что чёрный экран смерти пропал.

Текущий статус

Свежая версия работает в штатном режиме.

Обновление для пользователей, которые не успели обновиться, проходит с помощью экрана с инструкцией.

Выводы и работа над ошибками

Автоматического тестирования оказалось недостаточно, а ручное должно было быть более тщательным. Наша ошибка была в том, что тестируемая сборка отличалась от той, которая была на телефонах пользователей. Тестировать следовало окружение, максимально приближенное к релизному.

Мы изменили подход к проверке функциональности перед публикацией и к самой публикации релизов в магазины. К команде присоединился пользователь, который готов помогать с ручным тестированием приложения перед релизом.

Мы определили критические сценарии описали их в документации для тестирования, которую будем использовать как чеклист как для интеграционного автоматизированного, так и для ручного тестирования. Каждый новый сценарий будет дополнять документацию и расширять чеклист проверки.

Также ошибкой было считать, что обновление не содержало “breaking changes”. По принципу «Сделать всё за пользователя» переход между версиями технической базы я решил сделать плавным и незаметным.

Возможно, стоило выпустить обновлённую версию отдельным приложением, или хотя бы сразу предусмотреть самый пессимистичный вариант и подготовить инструкцию с ручным обновлением заранее, чтобы даунтайм не был настолько большим.

Does The R4 Revolution Work On The 3DS

 Cache   

One of the biggest questions we are asked is Does the R4 Revolution work on the 3DS?  It is a perfectly valid question.  There are a lot of different R4 DS and R4 3DS cards available and it can get pretty confusing as to which cards work on which consoles.  The R4 DS was released at a time when the 3DS was likely not even a thought in developers minds.  As such, it would be very hard for the R4 DS card to predict or anticipate what it needed to have in order to ensure compatibility with a system that was not yet released.

Therefore, the short answer to the question Does The R4 Revolution Work On The 3DS is no, it does not.  Keep reading though to find out about all of the R4 cards that DO work on the 3DS as well as the 2DS systems.  

The situation was similar to the release of the DSi systems.  The original R4 Revolution DS was not compatible with the newer DSi consoles.  It required a new hardware revision in order to make it fully compatible.  Without hardware change it never would have worked.

r4 revolution ds

The R4 3DS cards were released as an upgrade to the R4 DS Revolution cards.  Much like when the DSi was released and our R4i Cards were released, the R4 3DS was the answer to the new Nintendo 3DS consoles.  And with the 3DS support, the 3DS XL and the 2DS consoles are both supported.

It is important to note that while the R4 DS does NOT work on the 3DS systems, all of the newer R4 3DS cards are fully backwards compatible with the DS and the DSi consoles.  This means that you can use it in system, from the Original DS, the DS Lite, DSi, DSi XL and of course all of the 3DS and 2DS handhelds.

These are the following R4 Revolution cards that work on the 3DS console.  Each of the support even the latest 3DS updated system software version.  If you currently have the original R4 Revolution for DS, you will still be able to use it in a DS Lite, or could sell it with your DS Lite console as a package bundle and upgrade yourself to the newer R4 3DS cards that are compatible with the 3DS.

r4 3ds

The R4 3DS card was one of the first cards that worked on the 3DS systems.  It offers all of the same features and functions as the R4 Revolution DS card did, with the added benefit of much newer firmware kernels and of course full support for the 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS and the 2DS XL systems.

R4i Gold Plus card

Another one of our customers favorites.  The R4i Gold 3DS Plus card is the newest in the line of the R4i Gold 3DS brand cards.   This card replaced the original R4i Gold 3DS by adding an internal switch that switches it from a regular flashcart to an NTRBoot compatible card quickly and easily - without having to flash the card itself.

R4i Gold Pro

For those of us that like the GOLD brand cards, this is another R4 3DS GOLD version. The Newest R4i Gold 3DS Pro offers up another option for gamers.  It does come with the added bonus of being part of our Buy 2 Get 1 FREE promotion and makes a great birthday or Christmas gift.  Especially if you're looking to buy a few cards for various friends and family.

R4 3DS Dual Core Cards

The R4 3DS DUAL CORE is our customer favorite, and one of our very best sellers.  Our newest 4.0b firmware update also does away with some of the minor bugs and the date bug on these cards.  The dual processing power of the authentic dual-core card makes it a fantastic option for using some of the most powerful emulators and has great compatibility with the 2DS, 2DS XL, 3DS and 3DS XL systems.

R4 3DS RTS

Much like the R4 3DS Dual Core, the R4 3DS RTS card offers up an easy to use menu system and full support for even the newest 3DS system software versions.  It also happens ot be another one of our customers favorite cards.  The R4 3DS RTS card, like the other cards in this post, is also backwards compatible with the DS and DSi systems.

This brings us to the end of the quest to find an R4 DS card that will work with the 3DS systems.  If you have an older R4 card, the only way you would be able to ue an R4 on your 3DS is to purchase a new compatible one.  As I mentioned earlier, you can sell your old R4 card to put towards a 3DS compatible card which will likely mean having to add just a few dollars out of pocket to be upgraded to a brand new card.

Enjoy, and keep on playing!   We'll be adding some more amazing new homebrew and freeware games to our 3DS homebrew section in the next coming week as well!  We have also updated the emulation section with some great emulators for classic computer systems such as the Apple II and the ZX Spectrum.  We'll be adding even more in the coming weeks.

If you have any additional questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us.  We're here to help.

Two Discontinued Software Development Kits Found Secretly Harvesting Data From Facebook And Twitter

 Cache   

While data harvesting has always been a problem for Facebook, a recent incident also involved Twitter. Reportedly, Facebook and Twitter confirmed how two discontinued software development kits (SDKs) harvested users’ data from these platforms.

Facebook and Twitter have once again made it to the news owing to an indirect data security incident. As revealed, two recently discontinued SDKs secretly harvested data from the two platforms.

Incident With Twitter

Twitter revealed that the malicious SDK from OneAudience allowed third-party app developers to harvest users’ data. According to CNBC, the apps exhibiting this behavior included Photofy and Giant Square.

According to Twitter’s security notice,

Twitter confirmed that the SDK harvested data for some Twitter for Android users. Whereas, Twitter for iOS users remained safe. Twitter is reportedly notifying Android users potentially impacted during this incident.

Moreover, they have also informed Google and Apple about the matter.

Incident With Facebook

Alongside Twitter, Facebook has also confirmed the security incident in its statement to CNBC. They have mentioned two malicious SDKs that harvested Facebook users’ data. While one of these is the same that affected Twitter, OneAudience, the other is from the data monetization platform MobiBurn.

Facebook also assured removing the apps from their platform which used the malicious SDKs. Also, they intend to inform the users affected during this incident.

Below is Facebook’s statement from their spokesperson to CNBC,

After the news surfaced online, the owners of both SDKs released their statements clarifying the matter. Both the firms assured that their SDKs were not intended to collect users’ data the way they did.


          

Magento Marketplace Suffers Data Breach Exposing Users’ Account Info

 Cache   

If you have ever registered an account with the official Magento marketplace to bought or sold any extension, plugin, or e-commerce website theme, you must change your password immediately.

Adobe—the company owning Magento e-commerce platform—today disclosed a new data breach incident that exposed account information of Magento marketplace users to an unknown group of hackers or individuals.

Account to the company, the hacker exploited an undisclosed vulnerability in its marketplace website that allowed him to gain unauthorized third-party access to the database of registered users, including both customers (buyers) as well as the developers (sellers).

The leaked database includes affected users' names, email addresses, MageID, billing and shipping address information, and some limited commercial information.

While Adobe didn't reveal or might don't know when the Magento marketplace was compromised, the company did confirm that its security team discovered the breach last week on November 21.

Image courtesy: Twitter user @Hxzeroone

Besides this, the company also assured that the hackers were not able to compromise Magento's core product and services, which suggests that themes and plugins hosted on the Marketplace were not accessed to add any backdoor or malicious code and are safe to download.

"On November 21, we became aware of a vulnerability related to Magento Marketplace. We temporarily took down the Magento Marketplace in order to address the issue. The Marketplace is back online. This issue did not affect the operation of any Magento core products or services," said Jason Woosley, VP of Commerce Product and Platform at Adobe.

While the company also didn't reveal the total number of affected users and developers, it has started notifying the affected customers via email.

Thought Adobe hasn't explicitly mentioned that the account passwords were also leaked, users are still recommended to change it, and as well as for any other website where you were using the same password.

Trend Micro debuts world’s broadest security services platform

 Cache   

Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704;TSE: 4704), the global leader in cloud security, announced during the World AI Show, the launch of Trend Micro Cloud One™, a security services platform for organizations building applications in the cloud. Cloud One allows developers to rapidly build applications using the cloud services they want, while managing their organization’s risk.

Cloud One delivers the industry’s broadest range of security capabilities in a single platform. Designed to help organizations meet their most strategic cloud priorities, it allows customers to migrate existing applications to the cloud, deliver new cloud-native applications and achieve cloud operational excellence. The first-of-its-kind platform has the flexibility to solve immediate customer challenges and the innovation to rapidly evolve with cloud services.

At its heart, Cloud One includes the world’s leading workload security service that is already in use by thousands of organizations. It is complemented by enhanced container security and brand-new offerings for application security, network security, file storage security and cloud security posture management to ensure cloud infrastructure is optimally configured. Many cloud security solutions are often hard to manage and deploy, inflexible and fail to provide the level of visibility IT teams need to manage fast-emerging risks.

Trend Micro’s all-in-one platform approach is designed to deliver simplified, automated and flexible protection, regardless of where an organization is on the journey to the cloud. Customers using the platform will benefit from a single-sign-on to all services, common user and cloud-service enrolment, visibility from a single console and a common pricing and billing model. “We have been helping our Qatar customers with secure cloud transformation since the birth of the cloud, over a decade ago,” said Assad Arabi, Country Manager – Qatar, Trend Micro. “Qatar customers have a mix of legacy servers, virtualized data centers and newer services such as containers and serverless applications, and all of which can be protected using Cloud One.”

Trend Micro’s new cloud security platform supports the leading cloud providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

“As more companies move their infrastructure and applications to the cloud, and adopt a shared responsibility model, we want our customers to have the option of the broadest choice from the best products in the market,” said Dave McCann, Vice President, AWS Migration, Marketplace and Control Services at Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Trend Micro’s new cloud security platform represents another example of new innovation, that is available via AWS Marketplace. By leveraging AWS Marketplace features like SaaS Contract API, Private Offers, and Consulting Partner Private Offers, customers can contract directly from Trend Micro, or their consulting partners around the world. We are committed to empowering our shared customers with easy and fast procurement and provisioning.”

Organizations like Armor in Dallas, Texas, are relying on Trend Micro for strategic cloud security. 

“As a security-as-a-service provider, we need to deliver on the security and compliance outcomes our customers demand of Armor. We need powerful, scalable security tools which easily integrate into Armor’s cloud security product, Armor Anywhere, to protect our customers’ constantly evolving multi-cloud and virtual environments,” said Josh Bosquez, CTO for Armor. “Our company’s primary goal is to provide security in a dynamic multi-cloud world. We leverage Trend Micro to help us deliver that vision and promise to our customers.”

By considering cloud projects and objectives holistically, Trend Micro Cloud One is able to provide enterprise grade security, while leveraging the benefits and efficiencies of the cloud. The Cloud One platform will be available in Q1 2020 with three services fully integrated: workload security, network security and application security. The other components will be available as stand-alone solutions in Q1 2020 and integrated into Cloud One by the end of 2020.

  • Trend Micro Cloud One – Workload Security
  • Trend Micro Cloud One – Container Image Security
  • Trend Micro Cloud One – File Storage Security
  • Trend Micro Cloud One – Network Security
  • Trend Micro Cloud One – Cloud Posture Management
  • Trend Micro Cloud One – Application Security

A Formal Graphical Language of Interdependence in Teamwork

 Cache   
Agents in teamwork may be highly interdependent on each other, and the awareness of interdependences is an important requirement for designing and consequently implementing a multiagent system. In this article, we propose a formal graphical and domain-independent language that can facilitate the identification of comprehensive interdependences among the agents in teamwork. Moreover, a formal semantics is also introduced to precisely express and explain the properties of a graphical structure. The novel feature of the graphical language is that it complements the Interdependence Analysis Color Scheme in a way that explicitly models negative influences and, in addition, provides a visual-communication aid for developers. To demonstrate the applicability and sufficiency of the graphical language in a variety of domains, our case studies include a multirobot scenario and a human-robot scenario.

But The Man from Beijing, though not among Mankell's very best, is a winner. It grabs like super glue. Mankell is a detective of society who keenly uncovers evidence of Sweden's social ills that will resonate with Americans. This delightful gem of an album focuses on the music of emblematically Dominican bachata via the Haitian diaspora found on that side of the island. Sung in Creole and Spanish, Bachata Haiti unites guitar maestro Joan Soriano with a masterful roster of Haitian Dominican artists including Franklin Medina, "El Zorro Negro." A lovely dialogue is created between the sensual lolls of bachata's guitar twangs (this is, after all, once stigmatized music, at one time relegated to bordellos) and the tight, lilting and soulful harmonies of Haitian creole kompa music. "Ti Pouchon" reveals the endless riches of the African roots that nurtured American blues, Dominican bachata and Haitian kompa.

North Devon BMX pump track gets the thumbs up from residents

 Cache   

The new pump track at Velator, Braunton opened on Wednesday 20 November.

It is the largest track of its kind in the south west, is open access and free to use.  It was designed and built by local contractors, TK Play in partnership with Kye Forte of Forte Trailscapes and is now ready for use after a 6 week construction period.

The £100k project has been funded jointly by £75,000 from North Devon Council’s S106* funding and £25,000 from Devon County Council’s Investing in Devon Fund.

A further £29,000 of S106* funding has also been recently been allocated for footpaths, fencing and landscaping, with the site due to be grass seeded in the spring to make it more attractive.

Contracts Delivery Manager at North Devon Council, Mark Kentell, says: “The trustees of the now folded Braunton BMX Club approached the council with land they already owned at Velator, which already had full planning permission in place, asking if we would take ownership of the land and build the track on the club’s behalf.  We agreed to step in and take over the project, including managing the construction and looking after the facility with ongoing maintenance, litter picking and grass cutting.”

A post on North Devon Council’s Facebook page about the opening has now reached over 24,500 people, with several residents taking the time to comment positively about the new facility.

A launch event at the track for councillors and the public to attend is planned for the spring.

*Section 106 (S106) is money paid to the council by developers as part of the planning conditions of planning applications. The money can only be used for certain things, but is used primarily for public open space projects.

SignalCheck Beta Crew Forum

 Cache   
Anyone from the Beta Crew seeing obvious problems with the latest SCP update? Likely on Android 10? Many (including myself) are seeing no cell data, or data that suddenly stops updating or appearing. I've been flooded with reports but I didn't notice any from this group. I'm likely going to be pushing out an update shortly that makes one adjustment that I think is causing the major problem -- setting the compiler target to API 29 (Android 10). I'm going to try rolling it back to API 28 and see if things return to normal. From a developer standpoint, the Android 10 network routines appear to be a disaster. Several long-established parts of the API are simply not working as designed. My best guess is they went too far trying to limit background processes to save power, but that's pure speculation on my part at the moment. Reporting bugs to the Android development team is a long, slow process but once I can narrow things down a bit I will do my best. This may be a bumpy road. -Mike

ASP.NET Core 3.x Authorize attribute not working

 Cache   

I have an ASP.NET Core 3 MVC application that I'm trying to get the Authorize attribute to work with.  In the past, I've never had an issue with it but, for some reason, in core 3 I am.

Here is my ConfigureServices method:

        public void ConfigureServices(IServiceCollection services)
{
services.AddMvc();
services.AddAuthentication(CookieAuthenticationDefaults.AuthenticationScheme)
.AddCookie();
services.AddAuthorization();
}

And here is my Configure method:

        public void Configure(IApplicationBuilder app, IWebHostEnvironment env)
        {
            if (env.IsDevelopment())
                app.UseDeveloperExceptionPage();
            else
                app.UseExceptionHandler("/Home/Error");

            app.UseAuthentication();
            app.UseAuthorization();
            app.UseRouting()
                .UseStaticFiles()
                .UseEndpoints(endpoints =>
                {
                    endpoints.MapControllers();
                    endpoints.MapControllerRoute(

                });
        }

I have a Home controller that I've placed the Authorize attribute on yet, I can still navigate to it once the application starts.

I'm having trouble with an error: "Error with your forwarded email"

 Cache   

Sometimes a user will email an agent directly, instead of emailing the helpdesk ticket account. In this case, the agent can forward the email to the helpdesk ticket account, and a ticket will be created for the user.

 

If there is a problem with the email being forwarded, Deskpro will send an auto-response with one of two reasons:

 

1. Unable to verify the email address

The most common problem is that Deskpro could not find the original email address of the user.

Deskpro parses the original user from the text headers of the email you send. For example:

-----Original Message-----
From: Victoria Johnson [mailto:victoriajohnson@example.co.uk]
Sent: 05 November 2012 14:38
To: agent_email@gmail.com
Subject: Support Request

 

Deskpro will detect "victoriajohnson@example.co.uk" from the From: line and determine that is the original user.

 

You get an error when the From line is missing the email address. For example, your client may send forwarded emails like this instead:

From: Victoria Johnson

Notice how the email address is missing. Without it, Deskpro has no idea who the original user is, so it has no choice but to reject the message with an error.

 

This is most common with organisations that use Outlook and Active Directory. Outlook will remove the email address from the From line when the address belongs is defined in the directory (e.g., another user or a gateway account set up in the directory). One solution is to manually enter the email address of the user; a better solution is to forward the email as an attachment.

If you email client supports it, you should forward the original email as an attachment. This sends the raw copy of the email you got in your inbox and will include all of the required information Deskpro needs to properly parse your message.

 

2. Unable to parse the original message

This means that your client forwarded a message that Deskpro did not know how to parse. As explained above, Deskpro must parse the original details like the From email address, subject, etc from the email itself. If you are using an obscure client then it's possible that Deskpro does not have the proper algorithm to do this.

You should forward an example email to support@deskpro.com so our developers can improve the parser algorithm.

 

 

Disabling forwarding into the helpdesk

 

If you don't want agents to be able to create tickets by forwarding emails into the helpdesk, you can disable this fucntion in Admin > Tickets > Forward Settings:

 

How forwarding into the helpdesk works

 

When an email is forwarded to a ticket email account, this is what happens:

1. Subject Match: The helpdesk matches the subject by looking for FW: in the subject. If Deskpro sees an incoming email, sent from an agent’s email account with FW: in the subject – it will understand that the agent is trying to create a ticket for a user. If the email is sent from an email not belonging to an agent - the ticket will just be created for that person as a user in the typical manner.

2. Sender Match:The helpdesk will then try and find the details for the user that originally sent the email. Different email programmes put the information in the body of the message when FW a ticket. An example is included below:

 

-----Original Message-----
From: Victoria Johnson [mailto:victoriajohnson@hotmail.co.uk]
Sent: 05 November 2012 14:38
To: agent_email@gmail.com
Subject: Support Request


In this case the helpdesk would match the user as Victoria Johnson with the email being victoriajohnson@hotmail.co.uk

It's possible that Deskpro will not be able to find the user's details. This is typically because the format from your mail client is unknown to Deskpro, you are using a language we don't currently support or the FW headers have been modified. In this case an error will be sent to back to the Agent including the original email. If they send the original email to Deskpro support we can investigate if our alogoritms can be improved to parse the email.

3. Reply Match: Deskpro will now look to see if the agent added a reply. This is because sometimes an agent wants to reply to the email they received but wants everything tracked via the helpdesk. If a reply is found, this response will be emailed to the end-user. If you, as an agent, do not want to send a user a message, it is important that you delete any signature automatically added to your email - delete all the way to the start of the headers added by your mail client.

4. Processing: Deskpro will now process the relevant triggers ("New tickets by agents forwarding an email") and create the ticket.

How to inspect AJAX requests with Chrome tools

 Cache   

The Deskpro interface uses a web programming technique called AJAX to allow the pages to update dynamically without the need to refresh the whole page.

Sometimes a Deskpro support agent may ask you to inspect individual AJAX requests to help diagnose a problem.

Here's how to do this:

1. Use the Chrome web browser.

2. Open the Deskpro interface where there's a problem.

3. Within the Chrome menu system, select More tools > Developer tools.

4. When the developer tools console opens, click on the Network tab, then click XHR below.

5. You can now see the AJAX requests. The Deskpro agent has probably told you some steps to take and a particular request to look for. Click on an individual request to see the request details, which you should copy and send to Deskpro.

Comment on Working with vtkDataArrays: 2019 Edition by Allison Vacanti

 Cache   
re: compile times, binary size -- these are definitely the bane of generic code! The vtkArrayDispatch utility helps quite a bit in that regard. Even if only using AOS arrays, there are a number of dispatchers that pare down the list of generated functor implementations. For example, <code>DispatchByValueType<Reals></code> only generates paths for float/double arrays, and <code>Dispatch2SameValueType</code> takes two arrays but only generates paths where the arrays have the same value type. By using the vtkDataArrayRange utilities, the same implementation can be used for both the optimized, known-type paths and a slower fallback path using vtkDataArray. This makes it much easier to just specialize an algorithm for common arrays without having to maintain two implementations of the same algorithm. This helps developers limit the number of generated optimized paths without sacrificing functionality. Together, these provide quite a bit more flexibility and control over codegen than the older GetVoidPointer/vtkTemplateType macro system.

A sea rescue operation system based on LoRa

 Cache   
A sea rescue operation system based on LoRa Dehda, PS; Jayram, S; Abu Mahfouz, Adnan MI; Ouahada, K Current Personal Flotation Devices (PFD), such as life jackets, are equipped with reflective tape and water- activated LED units. As technology advances, it is imperative that safety equipment is enhanced as well This motivates the use of Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) technology, such as LoRa (Long Range), to allow for easier detection of individuals when disaster strikes at sea. The methodology involves developing a transmitter device, to be placed in a life jacket and a receiver device ,to be placed in a sea rescue helicopter. MultiTech 's range of LoRa enabled modules were used This includes the LoRa mCard, MultiTech MultiConnect Conduit, LoRa mDot and the MultiTech micro developer kit Sensors placed in the life jacket were that of a pulse sensor, water sensor and GPS sensor. It was found that within a 4 km range, the transmitter transmitted data to the receiver within 1.9 ms. The GPS sensor provided the latitude and longitude of the user with an error margin of 7 meters. The pulse sensor produced a BPM value which was 98% accurate compared to the wrist method test of finding ones BPM. Therefore, in this paper, the authors designed and implemented a sea rescue system which depicted how LoRa can be utilized in such an application and shows how it can be used to transfer data from a device attached to a PFD to a receiver placed in a sea rescue helicopter. Hence and so forth, the use of water sensors, GPS sensors and pulse sensors have been attached to a transmitter device found in a life jacket which then transfer live information to a receiver placed in a sea rescue helicopter. The overall aim of the system is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of current sea rescue operations.

เจาะลึก HMS Core บริการของ Huawei ที่ตั้งใจนำมาใช้แทน Google Play Services

 Cache   

วิธีการของ Huawei เพื่อรับมือปัญหาไม่สามารถใช้งาน Google Mobile Services (GMS) หลังโดนรัฐบาลสหรัฐแบน คือการสร้าง Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) ขึ้นมาทดแทน

แต่ถ้าลงลึกในรายละเอียด คำว่า HMS ถือเป็น "แบรนด์" ที่มีส่วนประกอบย่อยๆ มากมาย สามารถจัดเป็นกลุ่มได้ 3 แบบคือ HMS Core (แกน API หลัก), HMS Capabilities (API เสริม) และ HMS Connect (พวกร้านขายแอพ ช่องทางจัดจำหน่าย) ซึ่งบทความนี้เราจะมารู้จัก HMS Core ในฐานะตัวตายตัวแทนของ Google Play Services นั่นเอง

No Description

แผนภาพด้านล่างนี้เป็นโครงสร้างของ HMS ทั้งหมดที่แยกได้เป็น 3 กลุ่ม

  • HMS Core API หลักที่เขียนขึ้นมาใช้ทดแทน Google Play Services โดยตรง
  • HMS Capabilities API เสริมความสามารถ เช่น งานด้าน AI, VR, IoT
  • HMS Connect ประกอบด้วยร้านขายแอพมือถือ (AppGallery) และขายฟีเจอร์ของอุปกรณ์อื่นที่ไม่ใช่มือถือ (Ability Gallery) รวมถึงร้านขายธีมและคอนเทนต์ (ตรงนี้เทียบได้กับ Google Play Store)

บทความนี้จะโฟกัสไปที่ HMS Core เพียงอย่างเดียวครับ

No Description

ตัวของ HMS Core เองก็ประกอบด้วยชุด API หลายตัว (นับตามภาพได้ทั้งหมด 9 ตัว) แยกได้อีกเป็น 3 กลุ่มย่อยคือ

  • Development API สำหรับการพัฒนาแอพโดยตรง
  • Growth API ช่วยดันให้แอพเติบโต มีคนใช้เยอะขึ้น เช่น push notification หรือ analytics
  • Monetization API ด้านการหาเงิน เช่น โฆษณา หรือ in-app purchase

รายละเอียดของ HMS Core แต่ละตัวสามารถดูได้จากหน้าเว็บ Huawei Developer

No Description

มาถึงตรงนี้ต้องบอกว่า HMS Core ถูกสร้างขึ้นมาเพื่อใช้ทดแทน Google Play Services โดยตรงแบบ 1:1 ซึ่งถ้าดูจาก วิธีการจัดหมวด API ของ Google Play Services จะเห็นว่าเหมือนกันแบบเป๊ะๆ คือ Develop, Grow, Earn

เพียงแต่จำนวน API ของ HMS Core ยังน้อยกว่า Google Play Services อยู่พอสมควร ซึ่งก็ไม่ใช่เรื่องน่าแปลกใจเพราะ Google Play Services (รวม Firebase) ทำมานาน 10 ปี ในขณะที่ HMS Core ยังเพิ่งเริ่มเท่านั้น

No Description

No Description

เรามาดู API แต่ละตัวของ HMS Core กันให้ละเอียดขึ้น

เริ่มจาก Account Kit บริการสำหรับล็อกอินในแอพ ที่ใช้บัญชี Huawei ID แทน Google Account

ตัวมันเองเขียนขึ้นบนโพรโทคอล OAUTH 2.0 มาตรฐาน มีฟีเจอร์ด้านการล็อกอินครบครัน ข้อจำกัดของมันคงเป็นว่าต้องมีบัญชี Huawei ID ด้วย ซึ่ง Huawei ก็คุยว่าตอนนี้มีผู้ใช้งานแล้วมากกว่า 500 ล้านคน และให้ข้อมูลว่าอยู่นอกจีนถึง 140 ล้านคน

No Description

No Description

บริการตัวที่สองคือ Location Kit สำหรับหาพิกัดตำแหน่งของมือถือเพื่อให้แอพทราบ (เทียบได้กับ com.google.android.gms.location) ตรงนี้เป็นการดึงข้อมูลของ cellular, GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth มาคำนวณ จึงไม่ต่างอะไรกับบริการของกูเกิลมากนัก

ปัจจุบัน Location Kit อาจยังขาดฟีเจอร์ขั้นสูงบางอย่าง เช่น การทำ geofence หรือ indoor positioning แต่ในเอกสารก็ระบุว่าจะเพิ่มขึ้นมาในอนาคต

No Description

Map Kit บริการด้านแผนที่ เทียบได้กับการเรียก Google Maps SDK โดย Huawei ระบุว่ามีข้อมูลสถานที่ (POI) มากกว่า 100 ล้านจุดทั่วโลก

ผมดูในเดโมบนเวที เห็นว่าแผนที่นอกจีนใช้ข้อมูลของ TomTom ซึ่งก็เป็นบริษัทรายใหญ่ที่ขายข้อมูลแผนที่อยู่แล้ว (Apple Maps ก็ใช้ข้อมูลจาก TomTom) ก็น่าจะพอใช้แก้ขัดได้ (บ้าง) หากว่าไม่มี Google Maps ให้เรียกใช้จริงๆ

No Description

Push Kit สำหรับการส่งข้อความแจ้งเตือน เทียบได้กับ Firebase Cloud Messaging แต่เปลี่ยนมาใช้ Huawei Push แทน รองรับการส่งข้อความหลายภาษา หลายฟอร์แมต เจาะจงตามโพรไฟล์ผู้ใช้งานได้

No Description

In-App Purchases บริการจ่ายเงินภายในแอพ รองรับวิธีการจ่ายเงินหลากหลาย ทั้งบัตรเครดิตยี่ห้อหลักๆ (Visa / Mastercard / AMEX / JCB) และการหัก carrier billing

No Description

รองรับการจ่ายเงินซื้อ subscription ระยะยาว และการเปิดคำสั่งซื้อ (order)

No Description

Ads Kit ระบบโฆษณาภายในแอพ ใช้ระบบ OAID ระบุตัวตนผู้ใช้งานแทนการใช้ IMEI และจับมือกับเครือข่ายโฆษณาหลายยี่ห้อ

No Description

API ตัวอื่นที่ Huawei ไม่ได้นำมาเดโมบนเวทีได้แก่

  • Drive Kit สำหรับพื้นที่เก็บข้อมูล เทียบได้กับ Google Drive แต่เปลี่ยนมาใช้ Huawei Cloud แทน
  • Game Services บริการสำหรับเกม เทียบได้กับ Google Play Game Services
  • Analytics Kit สำหรับวิเคราะห์ข้อมูลการใช้งาน เทียบได้กับ Google Analytics แต่เปลี่ยนมาใช้ Huawei Analytics

เวอร์ชันปัจจุบันของ HMS คือ 3.0.0 แต่ภายในปีนี้เราจะเห็น HMS 4.0.0 ที่มี API เพิ่มมาอีกมาก เช่น Health Kit (เทียบได้กับ Google Fit), Nearby Service, FIDO, DRM, ML เป็นต้น

No Description

Huawei คุยว่าการนำแอพที่มีอยู่แล้วมาเชื่อมต่อกับ HMS นั้นง่ายและใช้เวลาไม่นาน เฉลี่ยแล้วเพียง 3 วันเท่านั้น

No Description

นอกจาก HMS Core แล้ว ตัวสโตร์คือ AppGallery ยังมีฟีเจอร์จ่ายเงินเพื่อโฆษณาโปรโมทแอพ (Paid Promotion) เพื่อเพิ่มจำนวนผู้ใช้งานด้วย

No Description

No Description

ในภาพรวมแล้ว HMS Core ถือเป็นความพยายามครั้งใหญ่ในการสร้างระบบทดแทน GMS/Google Play Services ที่ดูจะยิ่งใหญ่กว่า API ของ Amazon Fire OS ด้วยซ้ำ

ตอนนี้ HMS Core อาจยังอยู่ในช่วงเริ่มต้น และยังขาดฟีเจอร์ระดับสูงหลายตัวของ Google Play Services แต่ถ้าให้เวลาอีกสัก 1-2 ปี ความสมบูรณ์น่าจะเพิ่มขึ้นอีกมาก จนแทบจะใช้ทดแทน Google Play Services ได้เกือบหมด

ความท้าทายอีกประการของ HMS Core คงอยู่ที่การดึงดูดนักพัฒนาแอพนอกจีนให้เข้ามาใช้งาน ซึ่งปัจจุบันก็ยังไม่มีปัจจัยที่นักพัฒนาแอพนอกจีน (ที่ GMS ยังใช้งานได้) จะต้องเปลืองแรงมาปรับแก้แอพตัวเองให้รองรับ HMS Core เพิ่มเติมสักเท่าไร

Huawei ไม่มีท่าอื่นนอกจากใช้วิธีด้านการตลาดเชิญชวน หรือใช้วิธีจ้าง/ให้เงินจูงใจ (แบบที่ไมโครซอฟท์เคยทำกับ Windows Phone) ซึ่งก็ทำอยู่แล้ว (ประกาศตั้งกองทุนขนาด 1 พันล้านดอลลาร์) ตรงนี้คงต้องใช้เวลาและความพยายามอีกสักระยะเช่นกัน เพียงแต่บริษัทแบบ Huawei พอตั้งใจทำอะไรจริงๆ จังๆ แล้ว ต้องยอมรับว่าน่ากลัวไม่ใช่น้อยเลยทีเดียว

GitHub's Student Dev Pack - I'm Finally Applying

 Cache   

After procrastinating for a week, I’m finally applying for GitHub’s Student Developer Pack. It took almost a week for me to answer a simple question.

How do you plan to use GitHub?

It’s a simple question, and I know how do I plan to use GitHub, but for some reasons, I wasn’t able to craft my words, the way I wanted to. Every day, I opened my text editor, wrote a bunch of sentences, and closed it down.

It wasn’t hard for me to write the answer, but I procrastinated, and now I know how does it feel to do something in a week when in reality, you can complete the same thing in around 30 minutes or so.

It took around 10 minutes to write, and the next 20 minutes were spent thinking if what I’ve written makes sense or not.

Here’s what I wrote and sent -

I’ve been using GitHub for a while now. I still remember when I created my account but had absolutely no idea of anything that was happening. I indeed wiped out my ~/home with git rm because I was having a hard time understanding Git and GitHub.

It took me some time, but I understood what’s the work and purpose of GitHub, and how important it is for people like me. If it wasn’t GitHub, I might not have been aware of Programming and Open Source. I love to code, and I genuinely care about FOSS.

GitHub Student Developer is important to me. I’m focused on developing better things than what I’ve built in the past. As a student, I don’t get much time to do a lot of things, so it’s not entirely possible for me to pay for the features that GitHub is providing to the students.

The initial goal is to make progress towards becoming a better developer while contributing to the Open Source as much as I can. So, here’s how I’m planning to use GitHub’s Student Developer Pack -

1) Use Bootstrap Studio, Canva, Iconscout, Icons8, Weglot to learn and build user interfaces and improve my fronted skills.

2) Use Datadog, AWS, Azure, mnx.io to learn, understand, and experiment with the cloud.

3) Use Flatiron School, Thinkful, Covalence, Go Rails, next.tech, Interview Cake, One Month, Frontend Masters, Educative to improve my skills as a programmer. Most importantly, I want to build sensible projects, write tutorials, and make useful contributions to open source.

I can go on and on, but I think these are some basic ways of how I’m planning to use GitHub.

That’s it. I think it makes sense, I guess. Although I don’t know if other people provide such a brief answer while applying, for me, it was different, so I wrote what was going on top of my mind.

UPDATE

Thu, Nov 21, 2019 at 3:15 AM



I just got the email from GitHub, and I’m very happy. I don’t have much to say. I’ll just check everything, and then I’ll probably get some sleep.

Happy Moment!

Paris Agreement targets need to be 5 times stronger to actually work

 Cache   
Story 352403074

In almost exactly a year’s time, nearly 200 countries will have the chance to go back to the drawing board and make revisions to their Paris Agreement commitments. It sounds boring, but those voluntary commitments are pretty much the only global tool humanity currently has at its disposal to fight the looming climate crisis. What these countries decide to do when they get together in Glasgow next November to update their commitments will quite literally determine whether the planet devolves into a climate-wrecked hellscape or starts tracking a far more livable course.

A new U.N. report published on Tuesday, a week before many of those nations gather in Madrid for an annual climate change conference, shows exactly what the world needs to do to avoid catastrophic warming. Spoiler alert: it will not be easy.

The report says that nations need to make their emissions-reductions goals five times more ambitious in order to limit warming to 1.5 degrees C — the threshold scientists say is the danger line for global warming. Even if all of the countries involved in the Paris Agreement bring emissions down to the levels they initially pledged to meet, the world would still be on track for 3.2 degrees C of warming. That’s 5.76 degrees F, a scenario that would make the wildfires, hurricanes, heat waves, and droughts of 2019 look like child’s play.

The worse news is that many of the world’s biggest emitters aren’t even on track to meet their Paris accord pledges. Members of the G20, which includes 19 countries and the EU, produce 78 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Of those countries, only China, the EU, India, Mexico, Russia, and Turkey are on track to meet their nationally determined contributions to the Paris Agreement. Meanwhile, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Canada, the Republic of Korea, South Africa, and the United States of America — which is in the process of pulling out of the agreement — need to take stronger action to achieve the targets that they voluntarily set in 2016. (There’s conflicting data on whether the remaining G20 members are on or off track.)

All these countries need to revise their targets significantly in 2020 and then start actually meeting their targets to “close the emissions gap” and avoid a terrible warming scenario. Inger Andersen, the executive editor of the U.N. Environment Programme and the lead author of the report, gives humanity two options: “set in motion the radical transformations we need now, or face the consequences of a planet radically altered by climate change.” Those radical transformations she’s talking about involve cutting emissions 7.6 percent every year between 2020 and 2030 if we want to limit warming to 1.5 degrees, or 2.7 percent per year if we’re willing to resign ourselves to 2 degrees of warming.

It would be the understatement of the century to call these objectives daunting. Luckily, the report lays out exactly what each country in the G7 can do to help achieve those cuts. The United States, for one, can put a price on carbon, shore up fuel efficiency standards for new cars, and implement clean building standards so developers build more efficient buildings. It can also regulate its power plants better and work toward a carbon-free electricity sector. China and India can ban coal-fired power plants, invest in public transit, and work toward zero-emissions cars and buildings. The E.U. can stop investing in fossil fuel-powered infrastructure, cut the natural gas cord, phase out its coal-powered plants, ban combustion-engine vehicles, and retrofit existing buildings to make them cleaner.

Here’s the good news: several G20 members have said they aim to achieve net-zero emissions by mid-century. In the U.S., many presidential candidates are running on platforms that include that ambitious goal. Furthermore, the technology to accomplish the recommendations laid out in the report already exists. What nations need now is the political willpower to make it happen. “We have to learn from our procrastination,” Andersen writes. “We cannot afford to fail.”

This story was originally published by Grist with the headline Paris Agreement targets need to be 5 times stronger to actually work on Nov 26, 2019.

Jami Attenberg, "ALL THIS COULD BE YOURS" w/ Alissa Nutting

 Cache   

From critically acclaimed New York Times best-selling author Jami Attenberg comes a novel of family secrets: think the drama of Big Little Lies set in the heat of a New Orleans summer

"If I know why they are the way they are, then maybe I can learn why I am the way I am," says Alex Tuchman of her parents. Now that her father is on his deathbed, Alex--a strong-headed lawyer, devoted mother, and loving sister--feels she can finally unearth the secrets of who Victor is and what he did over the course of his life and career. (A power-hungry real estate developer, he is, by all accounts, a bad man.) She travels to New Orleans to be with her family, but mostly to interrogate her tightlipped mother, Barbra.

As Barbra fends off Alex's unrelenting questions, she reflects on her tumultuous life with Victor. Meanwhile Gary, Alex's brother, is incommunicado, trying to get his movie career off the ground in Los Angeles. And Gary's wife, Twyla, is having a nervous breakdown, buying up all the lipstick in drug stores around New Orleans and bursting into crying fits. Dysfunction is at its peak. As each family member grapples with Victor's history, they must figure out a way to move forward--with one another, for themselves, and for the sake of their children.

All This Could Be Yours is a timely, piercing exploration of what it means to be caught in the web of a toxic man who abused his power; it shows how those webs can tangle a family for generations and what it takes to--maybe, hopefully--break free.

Attenberg is in conversation with Alissa Nutting, assistant professor of English at Grinnell College.

This week in KDE: GTK CSD support and more!

 Cache   

I’ve got big news today. Something major landed: full support for the GTK_FRAME_EXTENTS_ protocol, which hugely improves the user experience for running GTK apps that use client-side decoration headerbars! This includes GNOME apps and an increasing number of 3rd-party GTK apps too. In particular, these apps now display window shadows and have proper resize areas without needing to use a thick border. Here’s how Gedit now looks:

It’s almost native-looking! And it fits right in with the rest of your apps.

I’d like to extend a big thanks for Vlad Zahorodnii who has been working hard on this for months! The feature lands in the upcoming Plasma 5.18 LTS.

But wait, there’s more…

Do you love KDE’s apps? Would you like to help develop for them? I knew you would. 🙂 It’s really fun, and you can have a major impact. Many of KDE’s apps are quite beginner-friendly; among them are Dolphin, Elisa, and Spectacle. See the full list here! These apps’ maintainers as well as KDE’s experienced developers are happy to help and mentor newcomers who want to contribute. For more information on how to get help and who to ask, see https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved#Start_Here.21

More generally, have a look at https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved and find out more ways to help be part of a project that really matters. Each contributor makes a huge difference in KDE; you are not a number or a cog in a machine! You don’t have to already be a programmer, either. I wasn’t when I got started. Try it, you’ll like it! We don’t bite!

Plasma Edit Mode refinements

 Cache   

Editing, moving and customizing widgets in Plasma Desktop improved a lot in 5.17, and then in 5.18 it will get a brand new edit mode, to be really efficient editing your desktop layout (and have less visual noise by default).

This week another new feature landed in the edit mode for 5.18: it’s possible to set some plasmoids without background and a nice drop shadow, for an extra clean and modern look for your desktop.

In addition, a plasmoid can specify this backgroundless shadowed mode as its new default, like the digital clock now does (when is on the deskop)

Applet developers will have to opt in this feature: doesn’t always make sense everywhere and some may still be buggy. Some default plasmoids, especially in kdeplasma-addons have been set to support it.

If you are writing a plasmoid and want to support this background removal, in the main QML item of your plasmoid you can do:

Item {
    id: root   
    Plasmoid.backgroundHints: PlasmaCore.Types.DefaultBackground
                             | PlasmaCore.Types.ConfigurableBackground
    ...
}

Or, if you want to default toi the new background-less, automatic shadow:

Item {
    id: root   
    Plasmoid.backgroundHints: PlasmaCore.Types.ShadowBackground
                             | PlasmaCore.Types.ConfigurableBackground
    ...
}

Of course the NoBackground option is still there if a shadow isn’t what the graphic style of the plasmoid needs.

A notice that needs to be kept in mind, is that for color inversion to work automatically, one should never do:

    color: theme.textColor

But rather

    color: PlasmaCore.ColorScope.textColor

Which is a good way to get ready for Qt6 anyways, as context properties are going to be removed in the next Qt major release.


          

Plasma Browser Integration 1.7

 Cache   

I’m pleased to announce the immediate availability of Plasma Browser Integration version 1.7 on the Chrome Web Store as well as Firefox Add-Ons page. This feature brings a slew of important bug fixes, translation updates, and exciting new features.

Dark blue space background with stars, a cute dragon wearing a red bandana with a "K" on it, sitting ontop of the Earth which has a blue network cable plugged in whose lose end is squiggling around the KDE Plasma logoKonqi surfing the world wide web

Plasma Browser Integration bridges the gap between your browser and the Plasma desktop. It lets you share links, find browser tabs in KRunner, monitor download progress in the notification center, and control music and video playback anytime from within Plasma, or even from your phone using KDE Connect!

What’s new?

Per-domain media controls blacklist

Plasma Browser Integration toolbar popup with list of domains on which media controls should be enabledIt also lists players in iframes

A feature that I know many of you have been waiting for has finally arrived: per-domain media controls blacklist. It lets you disable media controls on specific websites, where they could either be undesirable, such as when there’s lots of animated video contents, or should they interfere with the website’s function. Whenever there’s a player on a page the extension’s tool bar button (“browser action”) will contain a checkbox to toggle media controls on or off for that domain. There is currently no dedicated settings page where you could just input arbitrary domains but this might be added in a future update.

This release also fixes another issue where enhanced media controls would break audio playback on certain sites. While the previous release attempted to fix this issue for players created from JavaScript via new Audio() I failed to notice that players created by calling document.createElement(“audio”) were affected just as well. Thanks to everyone involved in helping me figure out this convoluted problem!

Storing origin URL for downloads

Dolphin's sidebar showing properties of a file, most notably the URL it was originally downloaded fromDolphin showing the URL this file was originally downloaded from

A feature that was present in browsers for a while was the ability to store the URL a file was downloaded from in the file’s metadata. Since this could cause unwanted disclosure of information when the file is then shared to or accessible by others, this got removed in most browsers and tools, such as wget. However, I always found it incredibly useful, so I brought this feature back through the extension’s download management capabilities. Understandably, it is not enabled by default but offered as a choice for those who want it, and when you’re running Plasma 5.17 or newer.

Web Share API

New in this release is the support for Web Share API Level 1. This lets websites trigger a share prompt by calling navigator.share and then letting the user choose where to send that data, e.g. to an email client or a chat application. Since KDE has a Framework called Purpose, for example also used in Spectacle to upload screenshots to an image hosting service, adding this functionality was pretty straightforward. Don’t worry, following the specification, this feature is only available to websites served via https and only in response to explicit user interaction. This feature also requires Plasma 5.17 or newer.

Menu next to a "Share me!" button listing services to share contents to, such as Email, Pastebin, etcSharing things to the world at the push of a button

A future release might also add the ability to share any website contents through a generic “Share” context menu entry, so you’re not limited to just the KDE Connect sharing we have right now.

Chromium FreeBSD support

To keep the extension from complaining about failing to connect to the host when synced to other platforms, the extension has a list of supported operating systems. Looking at Chrome’s documentation I chose to include “linux” and “openbsd” thinking that would be enough. However, I was recently made aware that on FreeBSD’s Chromium the value is actually, well, “freebsd”, causing the extension to refuse to function for no actual technical reason. I am not sure if this is an oversight in Chrome’s documentation (Mozilla just copied that over verbatim) or actually a downstream patch to Chromium on FreeBSD’s side. Whatever the case, I added this key to the list now.

It appears there’s also an issue with how the native host is packaged or installed. If you’re a user of Chromium on FreeBSD, give it a try! If it doesn’t work then please check out the building instructions for the host on our wiki and get in touch so we can work out the problem!

Upstream browser work

Last week I also added support for the org.freedesktop.FileManager1 DBus interface to Chromium. This means that clicking on “Show in folder” in your list of downloads will now actually scroll to and highlight the file in question in your file manager. While this technically isn’t a part of this this project, it’s still something with regards to browser use within Plasma and I’m sure you’re happy to see this fixed. From what I gather the change will be released alongside Chromium version 80 early next year.


          

KF6 Sprint Recap

 Cache   

Following Qt Contributor Summit earlier last week, we had the KDE Frameworks 6 (KF6) Kick-off sprint at the MBition office in Berlin last weekend, to define what we want to achieve, and plan how we can get there for the next major iteration of KDE Frameworks.

KF6 sprint group photo. KF6 and KDE e.V. board sprint participants, virtual David and some of our hosts

Summary

Others have already extensively covered what happened at the sprint:

For the full stream of information of almost everything that happened you can also look at the activity of the KF6 Workboard. I’m therefore just highlighting a few things here.

  • We agreed to spend more effort than we did in the previous major version transition on ensuring all major users (Plasma, maintained applications) are adjusted or at least are trivially adjustable. This should hopefully allow us to shorten the overall 5 to 6 transition period eventually.

  • Better separation between UI and logic is now an explicit design goal. That is, we should refactor the remaining places that show UI implicitly (anything from a message popup for error handling to a complex dialog to e.g. handle TLS errors) to allow for alternative UI implementations. That’s of course of particular importance for Plasma Mobile, as those hardcoded UI elements are typically from a desktop-only time.

  • Similarly, separation between platform abstraction and platform implementation is now considered as a guideline. The best example for this is KWallet, which provides an API for secure credential storage, and at the same time an implementation of that. On Plasma this makes sense (we need to provide that platform feature), on other platforms (Android, Windows, etc) using existing infrastructure is often more desirable though. For an application developer this difference is ideally hidden behind a platform abstraction API. This should also help to simplify deployment on non Linux-y platforms and provide the user with a more native experience there.

  • Continuing where we left of for KF5, we identified a number of simplifications in the dependency tree of the tier 3 frameworks that once implemented should make things even more lightweight and further simplify deployment.

  • Something that easily goes unnoticed behind all the code discussions is the work on managing and maintaining the licensing aspects of KDE Frameworks that Andreas is driving.

  • This was the first KDE sprint for me where we experimented with video conferencing in remote participants, very ad-hoc using the built-in microphone and camera of a laptop and Jitsi, which worked surprisingly well. In general I think this is something to explore further (e.g. invest in a bit better equipment and advertise this ahead of sprints), as it could make such events and thus the community in general more accessible.

Going Forward

During the sprint the KF6 Workboard exploded a bit due to 200+ new tasks being added. We therefore had to review the task management workflow as well. Kévin will elaborate on the details soon.

It’s worth noting that the vast majority of tasks isn’t blocked on the actual KF6 branching yet, which we don’t expect before mid 2020. So that’s a lot of things we can work on immediately, in Frameworks, Plasma and applications. For those of you that can’t wait to get their hands dirty, check the top of the backlog column on the workboard (sorting and classifying tasks is still in progress, but the top should be good to go).

Another important aspect of the workflow is the reporting step at the end, so we will be able to regularly report on progress on Planet KDE. Make sure to subscribe there if you want to follow how KF6 evolves!

Thanks

Productive sprints like this are only possible with the logistical and financial support from individuals and organisations. Thanks go to MBition and particularly our friends Agustin and Eike there for hosting us, and KDE e.V. for making sure once more everyone had a place to sleep.


          

Public statement by Rachana Institute of Typography on the copyright/credit issue of SMC and RIT fonts

 Cache   

About us

We — KH Hussain, CV Radhakrishnan, PK Ashok Kumar and KV Rajeesh — are the copyright holders of TN Joy font. Many of us have worked on free/libre/open source software for years in our spare time and contributed code, design, fonts, documentation, localization and financial support to various free software projects. Our contributions can be found easily on the Web and elsewhere.

A copyright/‘credit’ issue

Immediately after the font ‘TN Joy’ was released to public by Rachana Institute of Typography (RIT), on 2-Oct-2019, Santhosh Thottingal raised a question in a forum with enough number of participants to qualify as a public discussion:

@rajeeshknambiar there are lot (sic) of contributions from me, Kavya in the build scripts, tests, and feature files in https://gitlab.com/rit-fonts/tnjoy/ Consider giving credit.

On 14-Oct-2019, Santhosh followed up again.

@rajeeshknambiar did not reply to my request for giving credits in their font.

and

Ask hussain sir to give credits for font testing and building framework. Crediting anivar alone is not enough.”

To which Rajeesh responded on 19-Oct-2019, to discuss with all the copyright holders of TN Joy about the issue:

“Noted. I will try to take it up for discussion and let you know.

On 29-Oct-2019, Santhosh again followed up:

അങ്ങനെ എഴുതുകയും ചെയ്യുകയും ചെയ്ത ഫോണ്ടിന്റെ കാര്യങ്ങൾക്ക് ക്രെഡിറ്റ് കിട്ടിയില്ലെന്നാണ് പറയുന്നത് അനിവർ:) sundar, and janayugam fonts. ഇതിൽ രാജാജിയുടെ ഹെൽപ്പൊന്നും വേണ്ട. even @rajeeshknambiar can just fix it

Analysis

During the first week of Nov-2019 for the summit organized by Kerala Media Academy, all the copyright holders of TN Joy font met and discussed the issue raised by Santhosh.

As free software developers and users, it was not our intention to violate copyright or appropriate credit of another free software developer’s work at all. Not only in intention, but we strived to achieve that in all our projects by acts. So, this accusation came as a surprise to us and we decided to take a deeper look at how this issue originated and what the root cause is, to address it properly.

We did a detailed analysis and documented the following details.

Technical background

  1. A Malayalam Unicode font has two essential parts — the Glyphs (അക്ഷരരൂപങ്ങൾ) and the OpenType shaping lookup rules. Unlike Latin fonts, both of these are necessary for proper shaping. The final TTF/OTF/WOFF2  contains both Glyphs and OpenType shaping rules to make a Malayalam Unicode font usable software. Without either, such a software is not usable.
Figure 1: Malayalam text without shaping (left) and with correct shaping (right).
  1. The Malayalam opentype features (GSUB and GPOS ‘lookup rules’) used in font ‘TN Joy’ developed by Rachana Institute of Typography (RIT) are adapted from that of font ‘Sundar’ which in turn are adapted from feature file of ‘Rachana’.
  2. To develop the feature file of Rachana over the years, many have contributed including the original author Hussain KH , Suresh P, Santhosh Thottingal, Rajeesh KV, Kavya Manohar et al. [1].
  3. Hussain KH invented and implemented the glyph naming conventions (‘k1’ for ‘ ക’, ‘xx’ for ‘ ്’ etc. instead of names like ‘uni0D15’ etc.), which made font featuring highly comprehensible for programming and much easier to maintain. This naming scheme is followed by all fonts maintained by Swathanthra Malayalam Computing (SMC) and RIT. This was also the naming scheme in fonts developed by ATPS and when it was pointed out that those fonts were derived from SMC’s, the immediate change made was renaming the glyphs and lookup rules [2, 3, 4].
  4. Rajeesh is the original author of lookup rules of SMC’s fonts for revised ‘mlm2’ OpenType specification for Malayalam, and made it possible to support both ‘mlym’ and ‘mlm2’ specification in a single font. This resulted in making a single font work well with Windows XP, Pango/Qt4 era applications and Uniscribe, HarfBuzz era applications [5].
  5. In 2015, Santhosh split the comprehensive lookup rules from the Fontforge SFD file of Rachana into a separate feature file, but the copyright statements were not preserved [4]. It is our opinion that removing copyright statements is violation of copyright act (hence a crime) and immoral in the free software world. This is also the root cause for missing copyright in the OpenType lookup rules and build script, of the fonts in question.
  6. The same lookup rules in 2, 4 and 5 are used and adapted by subsequent fonts developed by SMC and RIT, such as Chilanka, Manjari, Sundar, Gayathri, TN Joy etc. Rajeesh did not claim for credit or copyright when Manjari or Gayathri was released.

RIT’s statement

With this background,

  1. Fonts developed, maintained and distributed by both SMC  and RIT, specifically its OpenType lookup rules + fontforge based build tool + test cases are at the heart of this issue. This is caused by the change introduced by Santhosh in [6].
  2. The copyright holders of TN Joy font were made aware of such ‘credit’ issue — the definition of which Santhosh has not clarified and in RIT’s understanding is sufficient and limited to ‘copyright’. Thanks for bringing light into such a potential legal and moral risk that affects the users and organizations using these fonts.
  3. RIT  would like to acknowledge the copyright of Santhosh Thottingal and Kavya Manohar for the development of ‘Sundar’ and ‘TN Joy’ in the areas of lookup rules, the ‘build script’ and comprehensive ‘test file’. RIT  is willing to add the missing copyright notice to these files;

and RIT asked Santhosh to consider:

  1. Preserve the copyright of the original authors of the ‘lookup rules’ and Naming convention (notation for Glyphs) in all these fonts. The copyright and license statement should read:

“Copyright: Digitized data copyright (c) 2004–2005 Rachana Akshara Vedi (Chitrajakumar R, Hussain KH, Gangadharan N, Vijayakumaran Nair, Subash Kuraiakose), (c) 2006–2016 Hussain KH, Suresh P, Santhosh Thottingal, Rajeesh K Nambiar, Swathanthra Malayalam Computing (http://smc.org.in). This file is licensed under OFL  1.1.”

  1. The Fontforge based ‘build script’ added by Santhosh used to generate TTF/OTF/WOFF/WOFF2 files is adapted from that of Amiri font by Khaled Hosny [7] without preserving copyright or attribution. RIT requests to credit the original author[s] of this tool. It is of our opinion that removing copyright statements from a free software program code is illegal and immoral. It is also hypocritical when a person who asserts one’s own credit does this crime to other well-known and respected free software developer[s].
  2. Test cases in the ‘test file’ are contributed by various contributors, RIT  request to add the attribution of such contributors to the extent possible (Kavya Manohar, Santhosh Thottingal, Rajeesh KV). Santhosh has responded to this request as “test cases were mainly prepared by Kavya and no need to have attribution”, but RIT  firmly believes the copyright statements of the contributors must be added.
  3. The original author of ‘mlym.sty’ file [8] to typeset Unicode Malayalam using XeTeX is Suresh P, which was enhanced by Rajeesh KV with inputs from Hussain KH. Due to frequent requests on how to typeset Malayalam using Unicode, in 2013 Rajeesh wrote a wiki page [9] with basic details, which was later extended by other developers with instructions to install and setup XeTeX packages. This wiki article was later extended by Santhosh by adding matter from Wikipedia. This article was then copied and published in Santhosh’s blog [10] without attributing the authors, and [10] is frequently provided by Santhosh as the first response to general public asking for documentation on how to typeset Malayalam using XeTeX. It is shockingly hypocritical that plagiarism is practised by a well known free software developer who asserts one’s own credit without any respect to others copyright or credit. RIT  would like Santhosh to either: (a) redact [10] and redirect to [9] instead, or (b) credit the original authors in [10].

RIT  stopped the analysis and investigation of Santhosh’s claim at this point, as we have identified the root cause of missing copyrights and these are the important topics directly affecting RIT  developers.

Conclusion

RIT  tried to resolve the issue in private discussion with Santhosh Thottingal but unfortunately it did not succeed. Santhosh has not agreed to reinstate the copyright statement of original authors. Santhosh did not respond to many of the pointed questions we raised and deflected on answering others. Santhosh also refused to clarify what he means by ‘credit’ despite repeated pointed questions. Santhosh withdrew his claim for credit in one of the emails; and it is possible that he could change the mind any time and the issue could resurface. This surrounds the fonts by SMC  and RIT  in Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (which the corporate proprietary companies successfully used against free software for years) and put all the individual users and organizations and developers using these fonts under legal risk and moral ambiguity.

Thus,

  1. RIT  has added proper copyright statements to all the software used in building its fonts, viz. ‘Sundar’ and ‘ TN Joy’ [11,12].
  2. RIT  believes that our primary responsibility is towards the individual and institutional users of our fonts and developers depending on our tools; and they should be able to use our fonts and tools without any legal risk or moral ambiguity. RIT, to the best of its knowledge, has fulfilled that responsibility and strive to do so.
  3. RIT also understands that as with any issue in the free software world, the community would be divided, and it is a painful thing. RIT request the community to carefully consider all the facts before making a choice.

This will be the final public statement of RIT on the copyright issue raised by Santhosh Thottingal.

InterMed Breach: How Threat Intelligence Sources Help Maintain Domain Integrity

 Cache   

Major healthcare providers suffer a lot from breaches, both from a legal and financial standpoint. Aside from patient lawsuits, they also face severe penalties imposed by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).

So not surprisingly, the average cost per breached record in the healthcare sector in the U.S. this year has reached US$429 — which could easily translate to millions of dollars, depending on how many customers a compromised entity has.

For InterMed, the said estimate shows that potential fines could reach US$12.87 million for the breach the company has suffered in September. Here are further details about the compromise:

  • An email account owned by an InterMed staff was hacked on September 4, 2019.
  • Internal investigations uncovered that threat actors accessed three more email accounts on September 7 and 10. These accounts revealed the personal information of around 30,000 patients.
  • Personally identifiable information (PII) such as names, dates of birth, insurance details, and clinical data were stolen.
  • The Social Security numbers of some patients were also compromised.
  • InterMed maintained that the attack did not affect its entire patient database. Recently added electronic health records (EHRs) were also not put at risk.

As a result of the breach, InterMed warned patients that they should watch out for unauthorized payment card transactions and forged letters from insurance or healthcare companies in the coming days. It also offered free credit monitoring and identity theft protection to the clients whose records were impacted.

The healthcare firm is right to indicate that their clients are vulnerable to fraudulent activities following the attack. It's also common to see a spike in spearphishing campaigns as a result of data breaches.

How the Threat Intelligence Platform Can Help Keep Domains Secure

Data loss due to email-related incidents is prevalent in the healthcare industry. In a recent industry survey, 95% of healthcare organizations claimed that they received emails from imposters in the past year.

Note that it's relatively easy to conduct reconnaissance on a target host today, thanks to the ubiquity of online directories. For instance, a quick Google search for "InterMed email address" would lead users to a RocketReach listing for the healthcare firm. While the directory did not reveal the email addresses of many company employees, it did provide clues on the organization's most used email formats (e.g., jdoe@intermed[.]com and janedoe@intermed[.]com).

The page also lists the names of the company's employees and president. Pretty much all hackers need to do is send a message with a malicious attachment to a person on the list using the likely used email address formats. They can also attempt to brute-force their way into employee email accounts with weak passwords and use these for attacks or gain entry into confidential databases.

Email security software and strong password credentials are usually the first lines of defense against such threats. In addition, the use of threat intelligence insights can help ensure the integrity of an organization's domain infrastructure, as leaving gaping vulnerabilities is like an open invitation for attackers to steal confidential information.

We analyzed InterMed's domain, which revealed some interesting findings. Results from our Threat Intelligence Platform (TIP) showed multiple Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) vulnerabilities concerning data encryption and authentication.

One way of ensuring the security of an organization's network is by disabling suboptimal cipher suites that include NULL, EXP(ort), and DES and RC4. In InterMed's case, it may be a good idea to disable DES-CBC3-SHA, as this may be vulnerable to a CVE-2016-2183 exploit known as "SWEET32." Setting its HTTP Public Key Pinning (HPKP) header is also recommended, as this could decrease risks of man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks that use forged certificates.

* * *

All in all, organizations should continuously revisit their data management policies and train employees to improve their domain hygiene. They can rely on Threat Intelligence Platform to find weaknesses that attackers can take advantage of and strengthen their defenses.

Spring REST TypeScript generator

 Cache   

I have been a backend developer for eighteen years without writing a single line of code on the client-side, but with the dawn of single-page applications, my cooperation with web developers got closer. I started to observe their work with interest. There are so many exciting possibilities on the frontend side. It made me consider to build up my technology stack and become a full stack developer.

I noticed that web developers create TypeScript models and services that reflect our backend model and REST services. It was a tedious job. What is more, after they finally mirrored what we had on the backend, it wasn't the end. Because we always have to keep in mind one thing that is very common in software development... CHANGE. Due to some new business requirements, backend services were modified. The change forced frontend developers to reanalyze backend services and refactor frontend applications so that they would match the server-side.

Create a GraphQL API With Node, Mongoose, and Express

 Cache   
Everything is connected...


GraphQL is a technology that helps developers across the board to build more robust software more quickly. The ability to request all of the information you need in a single request is a game-changer. It has simplified my backend development of APIs for consumption by mobile and web applications that would normally rely on RESTful APIs. A normal RESTful API may have several endpoints for various entities (e.g. users, submissions, etc.); with GraphQL, you can get all of this information in a single go using GraphQL's query language, also known as GQL.

Migrate Data Between Databases With One Job Using the Dynamic Schema

"How can I migrate data from all tables from one database to another with one generic Talend Job......with transformations as well?" is a question I get again and again on Talend Community. As an integration developer with over 15 years of honing my skills, this question used to get me banging my head against my desk. I now sit at a desk with a subtle but definitely present dent, which is slightly discolored from classic pine to pine with a rosé tinge.

My attitude was always that Talend is a tool that helps developers build complex integration jobs and should be used by experts who realize that there is no universal, one-size-fits-all job for everything. However, I was being somewhat harsh and maybe somewhat elitist. Looking back at my frustrations, I can see that they came from the fact that I had spent a lot of time and energy building my expertise, and I was a little resentful of the expectation that what we integration experts do should be considered so trivial and easy.


          

What Developers Need to Know About Java Security

 Cache   

Java gained a reputation as a secure programming language when it was introduced in the mid-1990s. At that time, C or C++ was used for the majority of business programming. Java removed many pitfalls and vulnerabilities of those languages, like manual memory allocation.

This reputation as a more secure language does not mean that all Java code is automatically secure. Developers still have to make sure that they deliver secure code. Fortunately, you can stay on top of your Java security by keeping an eye on possible Java threats.

An end to error 5000

 Cache   
NI has established "user" error code ranges: -8999 through -8000 5000 through 9999 500,000 through 599,999. Unfortunately, I can't count the number of "error 5xxx" constants that I've seen. We should stop that; it leads to confusion at best. In an ideal world every developer or organization would have their own reserved error code ranges, but I accept that's not reasonable. That said, has anyone considered creating an informal list that organizations/individuals can publish their preferred error code ranges in? I think it might be useful. For example, if I'm at Company X and I see Company Y likes to use the range 501,000 to 501,999 then I'd probably choose not to use that range to avoid potential confusion to some extent. It wouldn't be fail-safe or enforceable, but I think it would be valuable; is anyone else on board with the idea? If so, we'd need to decide on where to publish them, but the LabVIEW Wiki would be one obvious choice in my opinion.

.Net Core MVC İçerisinde Bootstrap Kullanımı

 Cache   

Herkese selamlar ! Bugün sizlere asp.net core mvc içerisinde bootstrap kullanımından bahsediyor olacağım. Son zamanlarda gerek bireysel geliştiriciler gerekse şirketler ciddi anlamda projelerini yavaş yavaş .net core ortamına taşımaya başladılar. Tabi bunun ile beraber standart .net framework kullanırken edindiğimiz bazı alışkanlıklarımızı unutmamız gerekiyor.  Proje içerisinde bootstrap kullanımı da bunlardan bir tanesi. Normal şartlarda Manage Nuget üzerinden istediğimiz versiyonu kurup ya da cdn (content delivery network) ile bağlantıyı web sayfası içerisine yerleştirip kullanabiliyoruz. .Net core üzerinde de tamamen aynı mantık fakat biraz işleyiş farklı. Bu ufak tefek farklılıklar sizler için sorun olmasın diye bu yazıyı yazmaya karar verdim.  Küçük bir dipnot eklemek istiyorum birazdan uygulamadan bahsederken aksilik yaşamayın diye önden uyarı niteliğinde.  Bir core projesi açtığınızda içerisinde wwwroot file bazen gelmiyor. Bu problemi çözmek için ise proje üzerinde sağ tık yapıp yeni dosya ekliyoruz . Dosyanın ismini ise wwwroot verirseniz herhangi bir problem kalmayacaktır. Bu problemi aştıktan sonra ise yavaş yavaş başlayalım artık. Proje üzerinde sağ tık yapıp Add -> Client-Side Library sekmesini tıklıyoruz. Sekmeye tıkladıktan sonra ise açılan pencere içerisinde Provider alanı altında cdnjs , file system ve unpkg diye 3 farklı seçenek yer almaktadır. Şimdi sizler ile beraber karşımıza çıkan seçeneklere tek tek bakalım; UNPKG: Aslında eski manage nuget package manager diyebiliriz. Ekran içeriisnde yer alan Library alanına eklemek istediğiniz paketin keywordlerini yazıyorsunuz ve aşağıdaki ekran görüntüsünde gördüğünüz gibi yazdığınız keyworde uygun versiyonları sizler için listeliyor. Takiben ise hangisini kullanmak istiyorsak onu seçip projemize devam ediyoruz. Açılan ekranda aşağıda yer alan Target Location kısmı ise indireceğimiz paketin nereye kurulacağını gösteriyor. Yine aynı pencere üzerinde Choose specific File seçeneğinden de özelikle kurulmasını istediğimiz ya da kurulmasını istemediğimiz dosyaları değiştirebiliriz. FILESYSTEM: Bu seçenekte ise getbootstrap.com web sayfası üzerinden elde ettiğimiz cdn linkini doğrudan library inputu içerisinde görmüş olduğunuz gibi yapıştırıyoruz. Tabi ki de herhangi bir link değil hangi dosyaya ihtiyacımız var ise ona ait olan cdn linkini yapıştırıyoruz. Ardından elde edecegimiz dosyalar aşağıda ki alanda listelenmekte ve o alandan uygulamamızın içine dahil etmek istediğimiz dosyaları alabilmekteyiz. Son olarak ise cdnjs den bahsetmek istiyorum. CDNJS tamamen ücretsiz ve açık kaynak kodlu herkes tarafından erişilebilen cloudfare üzerinde host edilmiş 3403 farklı kütüphanenin 90027 farklı versiyonunu bulabileceğimiz özellikle web developerlar için efsanevi bir kaynaktır. CDNJS linklerini yine yukarı da gösterdiğimiz gibi kullanabiliriz. FileSystem ya da unpkg şeklinde bootstrap frameworkünü uygulamamıza dahil ettikten sonra geriye bir kaç adım kalmakta. Projemize bir adet layout page ekliyoruz. Layout içerisinde özellikle dikkat etmemiz gereken nokta tam olarak şu an. Yeni bir tag giriyor hayatımıza environment. Environment tag i sayesinde içerisinde barındırılan linke göre host edildiği alan ile iletişime geçer ve çalışır. Bu şekilde tanımlayınca biraz hava da kalmış olabilir, diyelim ki 3 farklı geliştirme ortamımız var Development,Staging ve Production. Development zaten bildiğiniz gibi bizim geliştirme ortamımız, staging ise müşteri ile beraber gerçekleştirilen test ortamı production ise artık ürün aşaması. Environment taginin içerisinde bu linki yerleştirdiğinizde o ortamlarda da çalışacağı anlamına gelir. Mesela aşağıda ki kod tam olarak derki  Environment tagleri içerisinde yer alan linki sadece Development ortamı için çalıştırır. Bir de exclude olayindan bahsetmiştik . Exclude için ise örnek html tag yapımız yine aşağıda yer almakta. Exclude ise development ortamından çıktığımız da standart linkin yerine ne çalışacaksa onun yerine gelecek olan bağlantıları içerir. Yani yukarıda ki kod derki Development ortamından çıkış yaptıktan sonra staging ya da production oluyor bunlar o ortamlarda çalışacak olan linktir.Burada yer alan tagleri ve linkleri layout içerisine ekliyoruz. Ardından bir adet controller , controller içerisinde yer Alan IActionResulta bir adet index isminde  View ve artık kullanabiliriz bootstrap frameworku. Basit bir kurgu ile örneklendirelim. Yukarıda yer alan html yapısının ekran görüntüsü ise; Uygulamayı daha detaylı incelemek isterseniz github linkini de sizler ile paylaşıyorum. Görüşmek üzere iyi çalışmalar.

We don’t need no observation: The use and regulation of facial recognition in Brazilian public schools

Introduction

The use of facial recognition technology in schools around the world in countries such as China and the United States has encouraged the similar use of this technology by other countries, including Brazil. However, it has also raised questions and concerns about the privacy of students. Because of this, analyses of the nature and consequences of the use of facial recognition technology in diverse scenarios are necessary.

This report presents a brief reflection on the use of facial recognition technologies in Brazilian public schools, including in the state of Pernambuco, where IP.rec is based, and considers their implications for citizens' rights to privacy, as well as the possibility of the technology being regulated by existing laws.

Background

Artificial intelligence (AI), algorithms, the “internet of things”, smart cities, facial recognition, biometrics, profiling, big data. When one tries to imagine the future of big cities, it is impossible not to think about these terms. But is the desire to make cities “smarter” jeopardising the privacy of Brazilian citizens? Does this desire turn people into mere guinea pigs for experimentation with new technologies in a laboratory of continental proportions?

The use of facial recognition technologies in Brazilian public schools has already been implemented in several cities such as Jaboatão dos Guararapes (in the state of Pernambuco), Cabo de Santo Agostinho (Pernambuco), Arapiraca (Alagoas), Cravinhos (São Paulo), Tarumã (São Paulo), Potia (São Paulo), Paranavaí (Paraná), Guaíra (Paraná), Viana (Espírito Santo), Anápolis (Goiás), Senador Canedo (Goiás) and Vila Bela da Santíssima Trindade (Mato Grosso).[1] Among the features provided by the so-called Ponto iD[2] system is the monitoring of the attendance of students at school without the need to take roll call. The system also aims to help optimise class time, as the time spent on the roll call is saved; help manage school meals, as cooks are notified of the exact number of students in class as soon as the gates close; and decrease the school drop-out rate, as guardians receive, through an app, notifications that their child is in the school. The last is noted as a primary social consequence of using the technology. To implement the system, the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, for example, has spent BRL 3,000 (USD 780) per month per school.

The technology provider's webpage states that the solution is designed in an integrated way, linking government departments. Because of this, a diverse range of public institutions can share information with each other. For example, according to the government of the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, if a student is absent for more than five days, the Guardianship Council is notified as the system also shares students’ information with that body.[3]

In 2015, the service provider also stated that the system would be connected to the Bolsa Família programme,[4] which is a direct income transfer programme aimed at families living in poverty and extreme poverty throughout the country, and intended to help them out of their vulnerable situation. In Brazil, more than 13.9 million families are served by Bolsa Família.[5] The receipt of the benefits is conditioned, among other duties of a student whose family is a beneficiary of the programme, to a minimum school attendance of 85% for children and adolescents from six to 15 years old and 75% for adolescents 16 and 17 years old.[6]

Privacy? Absent. Risks? Present

As previously observed by several scholars, digital technologies not only make behaviour easier to monitor, but also make behaviour more traceable.[7] Given this potential, a number of critical issues in relation to the application of facial recognition systems in educational contexts were identified.

According to the service provider, the system works off a platform that uses cloud computing capabilities, but it was not possible to identify any information regarding the level of security related to the storage of collected data in the company’s privacy policy available on its official website. Despite this, among the said benefits offered by the technology implemented are not only the monitoring of students’ attendance and their school performance, but the possibility of monitoring students’ personal health data.

The mayor of the city of Jaboatão dos Guararapes[8] states that in addition to facial recognition, the software also offers, through the collection of other information, the possibility of better planning the number of daily school meals. As soon as the school’s gates are closed, the cooks receive via SMS[9] the exact number of students who are in the classrooms. Meanwhile, according to the secretary of education of Jaboatão dos Guararapes, Ivaneide Dantas, at some point even the health problems of students will be identified and parents informed using the system.

However, the lack of information that is included in the company’s privacy policy,[10] or on city halls’ websites, constitutes a critical point in the relationship between students and the education system. The problem becomes all the more obvious since the solution involves sensitive data – biometric data – of minors.

The text of the Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD),[11] recently approved unanimously in congress after almost 10 years of discussions and two years of proceedings, has undergone major changes due to the vetoes of former president Michel Temer at the time of its sanction and more recently by President Jair Bolsonaro. The changes to the text of the LGPD through Provisional Measure 869/2018[12] have resulted in the impairment of the effectiveness of the law as well as a series of setbacks. These setbacks have ignored issues considered already decided on in discussions that had popular participation, as well as the input of members of the executive and legislative branches. As argued in a report released by the joint committee set up to investigate the possible impacts caused by the Provisional Measure,[13] the revised act put at risk the effectiveness of the guarantees reached by the previous text.

The public sector, especially the police authorities, are using new technologies to monitor the population without the social consequences being considered or even measured. The adoption of facial recognition systems for public security purposes is already a reality in several Brazilian cities. Recently, the increase in the use of the tool in public and private spheres has led to the establishment of Civil Public Inquiry No. 08190.052289/18-94[14] by the Personal Data Protection Commission of the Public Prosecutor's Office of the Federal District and Territories (MPDFT), as well as a public hearing held on 16 April 2019.[15] The hearing sought not only to promote debates about the use of facial recognition tools by businesses and the government, but also to function as an open space for the participation of NGOs and civil society.

It is important to remember that as systems are being implemented in public schools around the country, much of the peripheral and vulnerable population is being registered in this "experiment" – that is, data is being collected on vulnerable and marginalised groups. As researchers have pointed out, biases are being increasingly incorporated into the variety of new technological tools.[16] These digital tools can act more quickly, on a larger scale, and with actions that can be hidden by a greater complexity, such as, for example, through profiling systems that use biased machine learning algorithms that police, profile and punish minorities. The struggle is still against the perpetuation of the same problem: the deprivation of civil rights of certain groups of society as a result of social inequalities and power relations in society.

It is not uncommon for technology to be used in a way in Brazil that suggests the possibility of a future Orwellian dystopia. The use of facial recognition technology during the Carnival of 2019 in the cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador, resulting in a number of arrests, drew the attention of Brazilians.[17] The apparent relativism of fundamental rights and the relaxation of laws that limit surveillance due to the magnitude of events,[18] and the lack of official information on the effectiveness of the new automated measures, as well as on the storage and sharing of biometric data, were just some of the various problems identified.

The need to manage large events with thousands of participants is not the only reason why surveillance technologies are used in Brazilian urban centres. As Marcelo Souza from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) explains,[19] the increase in punitive policies and the militarisation of the police are the main reasons behind the increasing use of dystopian and invasive AI devices and technologies, typical of combat zones.[20] Even after a series of changes that have taken place in Brazil since the promulgation of the 1988 Constitution, public security institutions have not been significantly modified. The culture of war against the "internal enemy", for example, remains as present as in the days of the military dictatorship.[21]

Given that the recently approved LGPD does not apply to data processing for public security purposes, it would be possible for authorities to argue that the biometric database from the facial recognition system in schools can be used to identify suspects and improve public security. This would place its use even further outside the remit of current legislation. As the LGPD states, data processing for public security purposes "shall be governed by specific legislation, which shall provide for proportionate and strictly necessary measures to serve the public interest" (Article 4, III, § 1, LGPD).[22]

However, a specific law does not exist so far. According to the Brazilian lawyer and privacy advocate Rafael Zanatta,[23] the civic battle in Brazil will be around the shared definition of "proportional measures" and "public interest”. The solution proposed by some researchers and activists for the time being is the protection offered by the constitution, such as the presumption of innocence, and the general principles of the LGPD itself, which guard against the improper use of collected data. On the other hand, it is believed that a tremendous effort will be needed to consolidate jurisprudence where these principles are applied in cases of state surveillance.

There is also a lack of easy access to public documents and information on the use of surveillance technologies. Often information related to the operation of these technologies depends on ad hoc statements made by public agents or private companies, whistleblowers or, when granted, requests for access to public information made possible by the Access to Information Law (LAI).

The discussion on the regulation of AI systems in Brazil is still very new. According to Brazilian researchers Bruno Bioni and Mariana Rielli,[24] the general debate on data protection around the globe has different degrees of maturity depending on the region and the specific issues faced. In addition, a paradigm shift has been observed through the transition from a focus on the individual's right to self-determination with regards to his or her private information to a model of risk prevention and management with respect to data-processing activities.

However, the use of AI for the collection and processing of sensitive personal data, such as the biometric data in question, makes these risks difficult to measure. In part this is because the general population does not have sufficient knowledge of the technology to recognise the extent of its impact on their personal lives.

In this way, an imbalance of power with regard to public awareness and the use of the technology has been created in Brazil.

The need for impact reports on the protection of personal data is an important requirement that has been gaining prominence in legislation, such as European legislation and the recently approved LGPD. However, Bioni and Rielli draw attention to the few requirements placed on developers of AI technologies in Brazil, as well as on the consumer who buys and implements the technology. In particular, there is no law in relation to the purchase and use of facial recognition devices for public service and public safety purposes in Brazil, unlike similar public projects elsewhere that seek an informed public debate and the inclusion of citizens' interests in decision-making processes (e.g. the ordinance on the acquisition of surveillance technology recently adopted in San Francisco, in the United States).[25]

Conclusion

A decrease in school drop-out rates: this is the main advantage of facial recognition technology in schools, according to the company that has developed the technology. But are we assigning to technology something that would be the responsibility of society and the state?

As the Brazilian educator and philosopher Paulo Freire[26] showed, many of the most common practices in the Brazilian educational system are dictated by the Brazilian elite. This includes the use of educational content that does not correspond to the reality of students from lower classes, but instead inhibits their ability to think critically of their reality, and in the end discourages them from attending school.

Easy and safe access to school is also an important consideration impacting on the student's educational performance. The Brazilian Statute of the Child and Adolescent, in chapter IV, art. 53, inc. V,[27] states that one of the rights of the child and adolescent is access to public and free schools near his or her home. However, when distance is not an impediment to school attendance, issues related to the safety of the student's route to school should also be considered. For example, in some communities in Rio de Janeiro,[28] there are frequent incidents of armed confrontation between police and drug traffickers, visible abuses of power by the authorities, stray bullets and other incidents endangering the lives of passers-by, and even street executions, all of which are daily threats to residents. In addition, the reality faced by marginalised populations in Brazil raises another important question: the need for children and adolescents from low-income families to leave school in order to work and help support the household.

The problem of the school drop-out rate in Brazil is neither a new issue nor something that can be solved only with the implementation of a new school attendance system using AI. It is necessary for society to seek more meaningful ways to mitigate the present crisis facing the educational system.

In addition to projects that raise public awareness about issues related to new technologies in Brazilian urban centres, there is also a need to strengthen legislation that governs how sensitive data is shared and used in public projects in order to maintain the quality of public services. When the fundamental rights and guarantees of citizens are understood and respected, a relationship of trust is established.

Cities in Brazil should strengthen privacy protection instruments and create legal certainty through the establishment of fundamental principles, rights and duties for the operation of an ever-changing array of technologies in society. Regulating the use of personal data in the public sphere has the power to promote the conscious, transparent and legitimate use of this information.

Action steps

The following advocacy priorities are suggested for Brazil:

  • Formulate regional policies and strategies for the use of AI in Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • Develop legally enforceable safeguards, including robust transparency and accountability measures, before any facial recognition technology is deployed.
  • Promote national campaigns and public debate over surveillance technology given the impact such technologies may have on civil rights and civil liberties.
  • Include a social, cultural and political understanding of the needs of vulnerable groups in the country's education strategies to make the learning environment more attractive for these groups.
  • Develop open source AI systems that enable wider community use, with appropriate privacy protections.

Appointment order

 Cache   
Hi guys, really frustrated with the appointment manager portal as when I reorder available dive trips in the website builder (I.e) insert an additional trip on a date between two existing ones (drag and drop to reorder), the order changes in the developer but will not translate through to the live web site. This means that the date order of trips for customers to book on the website is out of order and difficult to look at chronologically.

Also would be good to be able to clone an appointment and create in another date rather than having to enter all the details again. Very time consuming. Recurrent appointments not an option as you cant select specific dates but rather have to set a monthly or fortnight recurrence, a calendar feature to pick dates instead would be better.

Seriously considering looking at another product for service planning and online booking because of this.

Also, I the appointments page all previous appointment (old dates) still show up. Would be good if there was a choice for all appointments and also future appointments which would then hide the historical appointments so that it’s easier to see the list of pending trips only, not the old ones which have already happened.

Help!
          

3 Monster Growth Stocks That Are Still in the Buy Zone

 Cache   

3 Monster Growth Stocks That Are Still in the Buy ZoneWith the holiday season kicking off, investors are shopping the Street for growth stocks. Stocks of this kind have a clear runway for growth, capable of delivering massive returns in the years to come. No wonder they are topping wish lists. However, in a year that has seen the market reach record highs, tracking down these names is becoming harder and harder to do. But don’t sound the alarm bells just yet. Wall Street pros remind investors that stocks with outsized growth prospects are still out there. In an attempt to lock down these compelling investment opportunities, we turned to TipRanks. The platform’s Stock Screener tool was able to scan the Street for the crème-de-la-crème. We mean the tickers offering up serious upside potential from current levels. Let’s get started. GDS Holdings Ltd (GDS)At a 103% year-to-date gain, all eyes are on GDS Holdings. This combined with a solid Q3 performance and strong long-term growth narrative has made the Chinese data center developer and operator a must-have name among several analysts. During the third quarter, the company saw revenue of RMB1,066 million, inching past the consensus estimate by about a percent. On top of this, service revenue increased 41% year-over-year and net loss narrowed from the prior-year quarter. That being said, Cowen & Co. analyst Colby Synesael points to its positioning in terms of demand as a key takeaway. “We believe the company continues to be well positioned in what is arguably the strongest data center market in the world and is taking the right steps to secure significantly more supply in its major markets as it prepares for even stronger demand in 2020,” he commented. Despite the five-star analyst’s prediction of continued macro and trade-driven volatility, he believes shares are set to climb higher in 2020. Taking this into consideration, Synesael reiterated his Outperform rating and bumped up the price target from $53 to $65. This bolstered target lends itself to a 39% potential twelve-month gain. (To watch Synesael’s track record, click here)Meanwhile, RBC Capital’s Jonathan Atkin cites the development pipeline as placing GDS on an upward trajectory. With GDS recently getting the go-ahead for 13,000 square meters of downtown capacity in Shanghai and its potential purchase of a second site in Hong Kong, total capacity lands at 230,000 square meters. “We believe, based on our discussions with industry contacts, that there is significant progress yet to come for additional edge-of-town deployments as well as new Tier 1 markets,” he noted. As a result, Atkin is staying with the bulls. Not to mention he lifted the price target by 40% to $62, indicating 32% upside potential. (To watch Atkin’s track record, click here)Similarly, the rest of the Street has been impressed by GDA. 100% Street support implies a clear message: the stock is a Strong Buy. In addition, the $61 average price target puts the upside potential at 31%.(See GDS Holdings stock analysis on TipRanks)    ACADIA Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ACAD)ACADIA Pharmaceuticals wants to help patients battling central nervous system (CNS) disorders. When we say this name has soared year-to-date, we aren’t kidding. We’re talking 180% here. Still, analysts think that this is just the beginning.On November 25, ACAD released topline results from the ADVANCE Phase 2 trial of its pimavanserin drug in schizophrenia patients. According to the data, patients given the treatment witnessed a great improvement in Negative Symptom Assessment-16 (NSA-16) total score compared to the placebo. However, the results were somewhat of a mixed bag as it failed to demonstrate a superior performance vs the placebo in terms of the Personal and Social Performance (PSP) scale. Nonetheless, Cowen’s Ritu Baral maintains a bullish thesis. “Overall, we view these results to have little impact on ACAD shares due to the earlier stage of this program and the smaller market size of schizophrenia patients with predominant negative symptoms relative to pimavanserin's new opportunity in Dementia-related psychosis (DRP),” she explained. The five-star analyst goes on to cite the Phase 3 HARMONY study in DRP patients as an upcoming catalyst. If this wasn’t promising enough, its trofinetide drug to treat patients with Rett Syndrome could also drive substantial gains. Rett Syndrome is a primarily female congenital neuro-developmental CNS disorder affecting cognition and sensorimotor function. Given that the drug demonstrated statistically significant results in a Phase 2 study as well as its potential to treat Fragile X Syndrome or traumatic brain injuries, Baral kept the recommendation as Outperform. Based on the $66 price target, she sees 46% upside potential in store. (To watch Baral’s track record, click here)In general, Wall Street likes what it’s seeing. 11 Buys and 2 Holds received in the last three months add up to a Strong Buy analyst consensus. At the $56 average price target, shares could surge 23% in the next twelve months. (See ACADIA Pharmaceuticals stock analysis on TipRanks) Pegasystems Inc. (PEGA)Pegasystems offers cloud-based software for customer engagement and other operational needs, with its low-code application development platform allowing organizations to quickly build apps to meet their customer and employee requirements. Considering the noteworthy 62% jump year-to-date, one analyst is betting that PEGA will come out on top in the long-run.Wedbush analyst Steven Koenig was impressed by PEGA’s third quarter results. Despite the fact that investments in cloud infrastructure and government certifications weighed on EPS, annual contract value growth of 20% year-over-year and a 7% revenue gain landed right in-line with consensus estimates. While PEGA may be impacted by the shift to a cloud-first model, the analyst expects this change to pay off long-term, deeming the software company a “Wedbush Best Idea”.“Investments in sales talent and capacity should drive better penetration of large accounts, perhaps the key to lifting underlying growth rates beyond the 20% level. With shares trading at 5.6x EV/FY20E revenue and key metrics inflecting positively, we see PEGA as a top pick into FY20 for GARP-oriented software investors,” he wrote in a note to clients. Bearing this in mind, Koenig tells investors his conclusion that PEGA will ultimately outperform remains unchanged. Along with the recommendation, the five-star analyst kept the price target at $95. This conveys his confidence in PEGA’s ability to rise 22% in the coming twelve months. (To watch Koenig’s track record, click here) Looking at the consensus breakdown, it has been relatively quiet in terms of analyst activity. In the previous three months, PEGA racked up 1 Buy rating, giving it a Moderate Buy consensus. Additionally, the average price target of $95 implies 22% upside potential.

A day in the life of a 23-year-old Tokyo game programmer

 Cache   

Masa is a 23-year-old game programmer at Bandai Namco Studios in Tokyo. In this 13-minute-video made by Paolo From Tokyo, we see what Masa's life is like, from the moment his alarm goes off in the morning until he is back at home making a Gundam model before he goes to sleep.

From the YouTube description:

We'll even interact with directors from popular Japanese video game titles such as Tekken and CodeVein. Plus we'll get to see what a Japanese programmer from one of the large Video Game companies in Japan does after work with friends. This look inside a Japanese game dev's life is pretty unique and should provide some insight for those people who want to work in Japan as a game developer or game programmer. Also, this day in the life of a Japanese programmer will show you what it takes to be a Japanese programmer. As you would expect, most of the work day is spent programming and coding, but there are other unique aspects of the Japanese programmers life we are able to see in this video.

Introducing Bubo RSS: An Absurdly Minimalist RSS Feed Reader

 Cache   

Bubo Reader is a somewhat irrationally minimalist RSS and JSON feed reader you can deploy on Netlify in a few simple steps. I created this one weekend last summer after nostalgically lamenting the demise of Google Reader many years ago. It's named after the silly robot owl from the film Clash of the Titans (1981).

View the demobubo-rss-demo.netlify.com
View the source codegithub.com/georgemandis/bubo-rss

You will find instructions on the project's GitHub page for how to make your own instance of Bubo Reader, update the list of feeds and deploy to Netlify. If you already have interconnected accounts on those two services it's really quite straightforward!

Read on for more information about the original impetus, design goals and thoughts surrounding this project.

What Does "Irrationally Minimalist" Mean?

Many RSS readers—including the former Google Reader—would pull the contents of a post into your feed so you could read everything in one place. Although I completely understand why someone would want to do that, I decided even that introduced too much complexity for my liking.

My goal with Bubo Reader was to be able to see a list of the most recent posts from websites I like in one place with links to read them if I want. That's it. If I want to read something, I'll click through and read it on the publisher's site. If I want to keep track of what I've clicked on and read I can reflect that using the a:visited pseudo selector in my CSS.

I think it's often overlooked how many problems the browser has already solved for us. Sometimes modern web development feels like fighting against the problems we've already solved as we try to build things that pretend they don't live in the browser.

Bubo Reader does not store posts in a database or keep track of what I've read. If an item is no longer available in the site's feed then it no longer appears in Bubo. If I miss something, that's just life. I can live with that.

Design Goals for This Project

Many RSS feed reader services have sprouted up since Google Reader left, but they all do more than I need. All I wanted was something that:

  • Had an absurdly simple interface, relying almost entirely on default HTML/browser behaviors and functionality. I'm using lesser-known HTML like the details and summary elements to hide and reveal content instead of recreating that wheel in JavaScript, for example.

  • Could be themed with CSS or mildly extended using JavaScript. For my personal copy of Bubo Reader I changed the font to use the system-ui font and bumped the font-size a little, but that's mostly it.

  • Didn't worry about pulling in the link's content into the reader interface. I'm happy to read most content on the site it originated from and many feeds only provide a short description of th content as it is. Mostly I wanted a single dashboard to know when new stuff is published and available.

  • Didn't rely on a database to see what I've read or keep an archive of content over time. Again, I found the browser has a way of taking care of this for me. The a:visited pseudo selector is enough indication for me to know whether or not I've already read something.

A Healthier Way to Read Online

I also think this is a healthier way to consume information and news. So much of social media is designed to reward things that hit the dopamine buttons in our brains, manipulate our common, human propensity for anxiety or distrubute outright propaganda.

Refreshing Content

The beauty of running Bubo on Netlify is you can setup a Build Hook to rebuild the site when you want to "refresh" the list of feeds. I'm using IFTTT to trigger rebuilds once an hour, which is a perfectly sane rate to consume information at. You could do the same, or use another service like Zapier, EasyCron, setup a cronjob on your server or even setup a cronjob to run locally on your machine and ping the hook as often as you wish.

What About Authentication?

There is no authenticaton required for Bubo Reader. Netlify does offer Basic Authentication under their Pro plan, which would probably be the easiest solution to implement. You could also utilize their Identity feature to add some authentication. I don't subscribe to any private or sensitive feeds, so at the moment that isn't much of a priority for this project.

Adding New Feeds

Find them in the site's source code and add them to the feeds.json file. This is the trickiest part of this whole setup I suppose, but I'm willing to bet the people who clone projects from GitHub and deploy them to Netlify are okay with editing a little JSON from time to time.

The first version of this project used Puppeteer to extract the feeds from a site. This was actually quite cool, but would hang or fail periodicially. Builds were slow and there was a lot of work making sure things didn't timeout or use too much memory on the tiny server I'd setup. Simply parsing a list of known RSS feeds was much simpler and faster.

It's on my list to look into converting this into a serverless version that could run using Netlify's Functions, but after using my own project for a month I realized it didn't make the thing feel much more usable to me.

In Summary

If you find Bubo Reader useful, interesting or it inspires a project of your own I'd love to hear about it! Again, you'll find the code on GitHub.

Protecting users from government-backed hacking and disinformation

 Cache   

Google's Threat Analysis Group (TAG) works to counter targeted and government-backed hacking against Google and our users. This is an area we have invested in deeply for over a decade. Our daily work involves detecting and defeating threats, and warning targeted users and customers about the world’s most sophisticated adversaries, spanning the full range of Google products including Gmail, Drive and YouTube.

In the past, we’ve posted on issues like phishing campaigns, vulnerabilities and disinformation. Going forward, we’ll share more technical details and data about the threats we detect and how we counter them to advance the broader digital security discussion.

TAG tracks more than 270 targeted or government-backed groups from more than 50 countries. These groups have many goals including intelligence collection, stealing intellectual property, targeting dissidents and activists, destructive cyber attacks, or spreading coordinated disinformation. We use the intelligence we gather to protect Google infrastructure as well as users targeted with malware or phishing.

Phishing

We’ve had a long-standing policy to send users warnings if we detect that they are the subject of state-sponsored phishing attempts, and have posted periodically about these before. From July to September 2019, we sent more than 12,000 warnings to users in 149 countries that they were targeted by government-backed attackers. This is consistent (+/-10%) with the number of warnings sent in the same period of 2018 and 2017.

govt backed phishing targets in q3 2019.png

Distribution of government-backed phishing targets in Q3 (Jul-Sep 2019)

Over 90 percent of these users were targeted via “credential phishing emails” similar to the example below. These are usually attempts to obtain the target’s password or other account credentials to hijack their account. We encourage high-risk users—like journalists, human rights activists, and political campaigns—to enroll in our Advanced Protection Program (APP), which utilizes hardware security keys and provides the strongest protections available against phishing and account hijackings. APP is designed specifically for the highest-risk accounts.

In the simple phishing example below, an attacker has sent a phishing email with a security alert lure from “Goolge” suggesting the user secure their account. The user clicks the link, enters their password, and may also get asked for a security code if they have two-factor authentication enabled, allowing the attacker to access their account.

Threat detection

Last week at CyberwarCon, we presented analysis about previously undisclosed campaigns from a Russia-nexus threat group called “Sandworm” (also known as “Iridium”). It’s a useful example of the type of detailed threat detection work that TAG does. Although much of Sandworm’s activity targeting Ukraine and their attacks against the 2018 Winter Olympics have been covered publicly, some campaigns have not been reported. 

In December 2017, TAG discovered a series of campaigns from Sandworm attempting to deploy Android malware. The first campaign targeted users in South Korea, where Sandworm was modifying legitimate Android applications with malware. They then uploaded these modified apps to the Play Store using their own attacker-controlled developer accounts. During this campaign, Sandworm uploaded eight different apps to the Play Store, each with fewer than 10 total installs. 

malicious apps targeting users in south korea.png

Malicious apps targeting users in South Korea

We also identified an earlier September 2017 Android campaign from Sandworm where they used similar tactics and deployed a fake version of the UKR.net email app on the Play Store. This application had approximately 1,000 total installs. We worked with our colleagues on the Google Play Protect Team to write detections for this malware family, and eliminate it.

In November 2018, we saw evidence that Sandworm shifted from using attacker-controlled accounts to try and upload malicious apps to compromising legitimate developers. Throughout November, Sandworm targeted software and mobile app developers in Ukraine via spear phishing emails with malicious attachments. In at least one case, they compromised an app developer with several published Play Store apps—one with more than 200,000 installs. 

After compromising the developer, Sandworm built a backdoor in one of the legitimate apps and attempted to publish it on the Play Store. They did this by adding their implant code into the application package, signing the package with the compromised developer’s key, and then uploading it to the Play Store. However, the Google Play Protect team caught the attempt at the time of upload. As a result, no users were infected and we were able to re-secure the developer’s account.

Disinformation

TAG is one part of Google and YouTube’s broader efforts to tackle coordinated influence operations that attempt to game our services. We share relevant threat information on these campaigns with law enforcement and other tech companies. Here are some examples that have been reported recently that TAG worked on:

  • TAG recently took action against Russia-affiliated influence operations targeting several nations in Africa. The operations use inauthentic news outlets to disseminate messages promoting Russian interests in Africa. We have observed the use of local accounts and people to contribute to the operation, a tactic likely intended to make the content appear more genuine. Targeted countries included the Central African Republic, Sudan, Madagascar, and South Africa, and languages used included English, French, and Arabic. Activity on Google services was limited, but we enforced across our products swiftly. We terminated the associated Google accounts and 15 YouTube channels, and we continue to monitor this space. This discovery was consistent with recent observations and actions announced by Facebook. 

  • Consistent with a recent Bellingcat report, TAG identified a campaign targeting the Indonesian provinces Papua and West Papua with messaging in opposition to the Free Papua Movement. Google terminated one advertising account and 28 YouTube channels.

Partnerships

TAG works closely with other technology companies—including platforms and specialized security firms—to share intelligence and best practices. We also share threat information with law enforcement. And of course there are multiple teams at Google at work on these issues with whom we coordinate. 

Going forward, our goal is to give more updates on the attacks that TAG detects and stops. Our hope is that shining more light on these actors will be helpful to the security community, deter future attacks, and lead to better awareness and protections among high-risk targets.

Today, AWS announces AppConfig, a new capability within AWS Systems Manager that makes it easy for customers to quickly roll out application configurations across applications hosted on EC2 instances, containers, Lambdas, mobile apps, IoT devices, and on-premise servers in a validated, controlled and monitored way. System administrators, DevOps engineers, and developers now have the ability to manage configuration changes, similar to the way they manage code, but without the need for deploying code or taking their application out of service when a configuration value changes, thus mitigating risk of potential outages.

A day in the life of a 23-year-old Tokyo game programmer

 Cache   

Masa is a 23-year-old game programmer at Bandai Namco Studios in Tokyo. In this 13-minute-video made by Paolo From Tokyo, we see what Masa's life is like, from the moment his alarm goes off in the morning until he is back at home making a Gundam model before he goes to sleep.

From the YouTube description:

We'll even interact with directors from popular Japanese video game titles such as Tekken and CodeVein. Plus we'll get to see what a Japanese programmer from one of the large Video Game companies in Japan does after work with friends. This look inside a Japanese game dev's life is pretty unique and should provide some insight for those people who want to work in Japan as a game developer or game programmer. Also, this day in the life of a Japanese programmer will show you what it takes to be a Japanese programmer. As you would expect, most of the work day is spent programming and coding, but there are other unique aspects of the Japanese programmers life we are able to see in this video.

AWS Lambda Now Supports Maximum Event Age and Maximum Retry Attempts for Asynchronous Invocations

 Cache   

AWS Lambda now supports two new features to provide developers additional controls on how to process asynchronous invocations: Maximum Event Age and Maximum Retry Attempts. When you invoke a function asynchronously, Lambda sends the event to a queue. A separate process reads events from the queue and runs your function. These two new features provide ways to control how events are retried and how long they can remain in the queue.

Donald Raab: Learn to Kata and Kata to Learn

 Cache   

Every Java developer needs to learn new skills and keep their existing skills sharp. The Java ecosystem is enormous and continues to evolve. With so much to learn, the prospect of keeping up may seem daunting. We can help each other keep up in this rapidly changing space if we work together as a community, sharing knowledge and practice. Taking, creating, and sharing code katas is one of the ways we can do this.

A code kata is a hands-on programming exercise that helps you hone specific skills through practice. Some code katas will provide you structure to validate a skill has been acquired by getting unit tests to pass. Code katas are a great way for developers to share practice exercises with their future selves and other developers to learn from.

How to create your first code kata:

  1. Select a topic you want to learn.
  2. Write a passing unit test that demonstrates some piece of knowledge.
  3. Refactor the code repeatedly until you are satisfied with a final solution. Make sure the test passes after each refactoring.
  4. Delete the solution in the exercise and leave a failing test.
  5. Commit the failing test with supporting code and build artifacts to a VCS.
  6. Open source the code to share with others.

Now I will follow the first four steps to create a small kata.

Step 1

Topic: Learn how to join strings in a List.

Step 2

Write a passing JUnit test that shows how to join strings in a List.

@Test
public void joinStrings()
{
List<String> names = Arrays.asList("Sally", "Ted", "Mary");
StringBuilder builder = new StringBuilder();
for (int i = 0; i < names.size(); i++)
{
if (i > 0)
{
builder.append(", ");
}
builder.append(names.get(i));
}
String joined = builder.toString();
Assert.assertEquals("Sally, Ted, Mary", joined);
}

Step 3

Refactor the code to use StringJoiner in Java 8. Re-run the test.

StringJoiner joiner = new StringJoiner(", ");
for (String name : names)
{
joiner.add(name);
}
String joined = joiner.toString();

Refactor the code to use Java 8 Streams. Re-run the test.

String joined = names.stream().collect(Collectors.joining(", "));

Refactor the code to use String.join. Re-run the test.

String joined = String.join(", ", names);

Step 4

Delete the solution and leave a failing test with a comment.

@Test
public void joinStrings()
{
List<String> names = Arrays.asList("Sally", "Ted", "Mary");
// Join the names and separate them by ", "
String joined = null;
Assert.assertEquals("Sally, Ted, Mary", joined);
}

Pay it forward — I will leave steps 5 and 6 as an exercise for the reader.

This example should be simple enough to illustrate how to create your own katas of varying complexity, leveraging unit tests to provide the structure necessary to build confidence and understanding.

Value your own learning and knowledge. When you learn something useful, write it down. Saving practice exercises to recall how things work can be quite helpful. Capture your knowledge and exploration in code katas. Katas you have used to sharpen your own skills may also be valuable to others.

We all have things to learn and that we can teach. When we share what we learn with others, we improve the whole Java community. This is vitally important to helping ourselves and our fellow Java developers collectively improve our coding skills.


Learn to Kata and Kata to Learn was originally published in 97 Things on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.


          

Wayne Beaton: Eclipse Committer and Contributor Paperwork

 Cache   

The Eclipse Foundation has several agreements that we use to ensure that contributors understand the terms by which they make their contributions and, especially, to give them an opportunity to assert that they have the necessary rights to make those contributions under the terms of the corresponding project license.

The Eclipse Contributor Agreement (ECA) must be signed by anybody who wants to contribute to an Eclipse open source software or specification project. When a contributor has signed the ECA, a committer will be able to merge a contributor’s pull requests. Another way of looking at it is that a committer cannot merge a pull request when the contributor has not signed the ECA.

The Eclipse Individual Committer Agreement (ICA) is signed by folks who do not work for an Eclipse Foundation member company when they become a committer. For those developers who do work for an Eclipse Foundation member company, the company representative can complete an Eclipse Member Committer and Contributor Agreement (MCCA) which covers all of that member company’s employees.

Acquiring committer status starts with an election started by an Eclipse project team. Upon successful completion of that election, the nominee is prompted to provide the necessary paperwork. Completing that paperwork is the last step in the process, granting a developer the ability to commit (i.e., push their own content or merge pull requests from others). When a new committer signs the ICA (or their employer signs the MCCA) they also sign the ECA, and so gains the ability to contribute (but not directly push or merge) to any other Eclipse open source software or specification project.

When a developer is elected as a committer to another Eclipse project, they will not have to complete any additional paperwork. Committer status is specific to a particular Eclipse project; paperwork is not project specific.

Note that contributors retain ownership of their contributions; the ECA, for example, states in part (highlighting is mine):

This ECA, and the license(s) associated with the particular Eclipse Foundation projects You are contributing to, provides a license to Your Contributions to the Eclipse Foundation and downstream consumers, but You still own Your Contributions, and except for the licenses provided for in this ECA, You reserve all right, title and interest in Your Contributions. 

That is, the contributor owns their contributions, but grants a license to the Eclipse Foundation and downstream consumers to use them under the terms of the project license.

10月1乡野春潮孙易7日,宋茜发布动态回应网络键盘电脑游戏侠对她的歹意点评,责问键盘侠。

恶评只因雪莉逝世宋茜没有在交际爱普生,宋茜回应网络恶评,责问键盘侠,贝利渠道表态。雪莉逝世后,一些网友便跑到宋茜之前的动态下谈论。网友说为什淫三国愿望么当成功88规律初没带雪莉回国?辔乃至还有网友直接说要宋茜赶忙死掉,陪陪雪莉。言外之意流露着键盘侠的狠毒程度。

为此宋茜发了长文字的动态,她责问什么时候渠道分庐州大鼓享成了做秀的当地。比起装腔作势,自己b形h系乐意活得实在一点。并请香港富婆键盘侠们不要去对他人利多卡因的人生评头论足,好心的劝告和主张也要有极限,不要越界。

动态一发布就转发谈论过万,网友们都对此表明附和,爱普生,宋茜回应网络恶评,责问键盘侠,贝利并期望宋茜能够爱普生,宋茜回应网络恶评,责问键盘侠,贝利好好的,做舞蹈教育视频自己就好。

在雪莉逝世后,爱普生,宋茜回应网络恶评,责问键盘侠,贝利宋茜就放下了手头上的事,忙着赶去韩国参与她的葬礼爱普生,宋茜回应网络恶评,责问键盘侠,贝利。10月1氮气6日就有媒体曝光了这件事。照片中宋茜一身黑色打扮,黑色墨镜和黑色口罩遮面,眉宇满是哀痛。

雪莉我国的粉丝也送去了26支彩鳞白玫隐形纹身瑰,并在上面写到"永远在咱们真理这边"。

这样的歹意点评和推测事情不是第一次,此前陈乔恩也遇到过。之前乔任梁逝世后,网友也跑到陈乔恩动态下谈论要求陈乔恩说点什爱普生,宋茜回应网络恶评,责问键盘侠,贝利么。还有网友责问陈乔恩除了有作业还有什么。

但实际上陈乔恩每年都会去陵寝祭拜乔任梁,而且只复古传奇要有空还会陪同乔任梁的爸爸妈妈。在价值观陈乔恩的陪同下,乔任梁的爸爸妈妈也逐渐有了笑脸。

所以请不fps游戏要摸女生下面歹意去推测他人,由于不知道咱们的哪一句话会成为压死他人的最终一根稻草。真的不期望再呈现相似的事情。

Targeted: Counterterrorism Measures Take Aim at Environmental Activists

 Cache   

On November 29, 2019, young people will gather at locations around the world for a Fridays for Future Global Climate Strike. On December 2, United Nations delegates, world leaders, business executives, and activists will meet at the 25th Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25) in Madrid to discuss ways to protect the environment. Participants in these events should also discuss ways to protect the protectors: the individuals and groups targeted around the world for their efforts on behalf of the planet.

The dangers facing environmental defenders do not stop at accusations that they are national security risks. From the Amazon rainforest to South African mining communities, activists seeking to preserve ecosystems and ancestral lands are being threatened, attacked, and even killed with near total impunity, Human Rights Watch has found. But in contrast to many of these illegal acts, the unjust labeling of environmentalists as security threats is often more insidious, as it is generally carried out under the color of law.

And while not all environmental activism is peaceful, only in exceptional cases would the actions of environmental activists meet a generally recognized definition of terrorism – actions aimed at terrorizing populations by causing or threatening death or serious physical harm to others to advance an ideological or political agenda. Nor, in nearly all cases, do their actions aim to undermine the rule of law. Typically, these individuals and groups are peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of speech, association, and assembly. When they engage in civil disobedience, their aim is usually to strengthen – and improve the enforcement of – existing environmental protection measures. Here are a few examples where environmental activists have been smeared as terrorists or other national security threats:

  • In Poland, the authorities denied entry in December 2018 to at least 13 foreign climate activists who were registered to attend COP24 in the southern city of Katowice, contending they posed a threat to public order and national security. Along with other individuals and groups, the activists had planned to press COP24 participants for rapid action to address climate change.

    The authorities had previously passed a special law empowering the police to collect data about conference participants without judicial oversight or the participants’ knowledge and consent and ban spontaneous protests during COP24. They also issued a terrorism alert that authorized increased vehicle checks and other security controls for Katowice and surrounding areas for the duration of the summit. Border officials detained and questioned several activists for hours, in some cases without allowing them to communicate their location or contact a lawyer.

  • In November 2015, French police used a sweeping counterterrorism emergency law enacted in response to the deadly Paris attacks earlier that month to place at least 24 climate activists under house arrest without judicial warrant, raid activists’ homes, and seize computers and personal belongings.

    Police raid a building suspected of housing climate activists in Paris on November 27, 2015, prior to the UN COP21 climate change summit.

    The activists were accused of flouting a ban on organizing protests related to COP21, which was being held in France the following week to sign the Paris Agreement on reducing emissions that contribute to global warming.

  • In Iran, six members of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation (PWHF), imprisoned since early 2018, were handed prison terms of up to 10 years in November for allegedly spying for the United States. During a deeply flawed trial, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards said the environmentalists used their work to protect the Asiatic cheetah – one of the world’s most endangered species – as a cover. A charge against four of the accused of “spreading corruption on Earth,” a crime that can carry the death penalty, was reportedly dropped in October. Two other PWHF members also detained in early 2018 were awaiting judgment. A ninth environmentalist, PWHF founder Kavous Seyed Emami, died a few weeks after his arrest under suspicious circumstances in what the Iranian authorities alleged to be a suicide.

An Iranian court in November 2019 sentenced Bayani, Tahbaz, Jokar, Ghadirian, Khaleghi and Kashani to prison terms of 6 to 10 years. 

    © 2018 #anyhopefornature Campaign

    Issa Kalantari, the head of Iran’s Department of Environment, said there was no evidence that the detained environmentalists were spies. He said the arrests have had a chilling effect on environmental groups in the country.

    The arrests appear to be motivated both by Iran’s “paranoia” about foreign countries using environmentalists as cover and its recognition that anger over environmental degradation can unite populations against government policies, said Kaveh Madani, the country’s former deputy environmental director. Madani returned to his native Iran from London in 2017 to take up the post, but said he was immediately detained and questioned by Revolutionary Guards, who broke into his phone, computer, emails, and social media accounts, and called him a “bioterrorist,” a “water terrorist,” and a spy. He left Iran after seven months, alleging repeated harassment including for his criticism of dam projects, which are constructed by the Revolutionary Guards.

  • In Kenya, the police and military have frequently labeled environmental activists opposing a mega-infrastructure project in the Lamu coastal region, including a coal-fired power plant, as “terrorists” while subjecting them to threats, beatings, and arbitrary arrests and detentions. In 15 cases documented by Human Rights Watch between 2013 and 2016, the authorities accused environmental defenders of membership in, or links to, the extremist armed group al-Shabab but provided no compelling evidence.

    Residents and environmental activists on Lamu island, Kenya, protest the proposed Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia (LAPSSET) project on March 1, 2012.

    The activists are protesting construction of the Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) corridor, the biggest infrastructure project in Central and East Africa, which is to include a 32-berth seaport, three international airports, a road and railway network, and three resort cities. They contend that LAPSSET will pollute the air and water, destroy mangrove forests and breeding grounds for fish, and take farmland without just compensation, displacing communities and destroying their livelihoods.

    In July, Kenya’s environmental tribunal blocked approval of the power plant absent a new environmental impact study, finding the China-backed developers’ original assessment and public consultation process inadequate. The rest of the LAPSSET project continues. So does the intimidation campaign, activists protesting LAPSSET told Human Rights Watch.

  • In the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte in 2018 placed 600 civil society members, including environmentalists and indigenous rights defenders, on a list of alleged members of the country’s communist party and its armed wing, which he declared to be a terrorist organization. Duterte’s “terrorist list” included Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, an indigenous Filipina who is the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples and a climate change activist.

    In late 2017, Tauli-Corpuz had criticized the government for attacks and other abuses against indigenous communities that opposed coal and diamond mining on ancestral lands. Although a Manila court months later ordered the government to remove Tauli-Corpuz from the list, a Philippines military official in 2019 renewed the campaign against her, accusing her of “infiltrating” the UN for the communist insurgents. Several UN human rights experts condemned Tauli-Corpuz’s listing.

  • In Ecuador, eight years passed before the prominent environmental activist José “Pepe” Acacho, a Shuar indigenous leader, was able to clear himself of “terrorism” charges for his activities opposing mining and oil exploration in the Amazon. Acacho was charged with terrorism in 2010 for allegedly inciting violence during Shuar protests against a mining law.

    Pepe Acacho, second from left, leaves a courtroom in Quito, Ecuador, on February 8, 2011, after a judge granted his habeas corpus petition.

    He was convicted in 2013 and sentenced to 12 years in prison. Human Rights Watch reviewed the trial documents and found no credible evidence of terrorism-related crimes. In 2018, Ecuador’s highest court threw out the terrorism conviction but instead sentenced him to eight months in prison for “public services obstruction” – a charge for which he was never tried and hence never had the opportunity to contest. Acacho spent 17 days in jail before receiving a presidential pardon in October 2018.

  • In the US in August 2018, then-US Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke blamed “environmental terrorist groups” that opposed logging for wildfires on the West Coast – a proposition immediately attacked by leading environmental organizations including the Sierra Club. In 2017, 84 members of the US Congress, most of them Republicans, asked the Justice Department if activists mobilizing against the construction of oil pipelines could be prosecuted as terrorists. (The department’s response was that in some cases, yes.)

    Native Americans protest construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline in North Dakota on September 4, 2019.

    That same year, a major pipeline operator, Energy Transfer Partners LP, filed a lawsuit against Greenpeace and other environmental groups, accusing them of launching a “rogue eco-terrorist” campaign against the Dakota Access crude oil pipeline. Environmental activists and Native American tribes had tried to block construction of the 1,172-mile-long, underground pipeline through North Dakota during a protracted standoff with the authorities in 2016, saying it threatened sacred sites and drinking water. A federal court dismissed the lawsuit earlier this year.

    Although the protesters were largely peaceful, some resorted to violence and were convicted of protest-related crimes, but none for offenses that even remotely approximated terrorism. UN experts condemned security force responses to the protests as “excessive,” including their use of rubber bullets, teargas, compression grenades, mace, and “inhuman and degrading” detention conditions.

  • In Russia, at least 14 environmental groups have stopped work in recent years, and the head of the prominent group Ekozaschita! (Ecodefense!), Alexandra Koroleva, fled the country in June to avoid prosecution under the draconian Law on Foreign Agents. The 2012 law requires any Russian group accepting foreign funding and carrying out activities deemed to be “political” to register as a “foreign agent,” a term that in Russia implies “spy” or “traitor.” Authorities have used the law to silence groups that opposed state-sanctioned development projects and petitioned authorities for the release of imprisoned environmental activists, a Human Rights Watch investigation found.

    Alexandra Koroleva, the head of the Russian nongovernmental organization Ecodefense, fled to Germany in June 2019 to avoid being targeted under the abusive Russian “foreign agents” law.

    Russian officials including the special envoy for environmental protection, Sergey Ivanov, have applied the “extremist” label to Greenpeace Russia. An activist with Stop GOK, a Russian group seeking to block mining and enrichment plants, was fined in April 2019 for “mass distribution of extremist materials” because he published a poem on the organization’s social media page that the government had banned as extremist in 2012. The Russian nongovernmental organization SOVA Center, which analyzes counter-extremism trends, found that the poem, “Last Wish to the Ivans,” is a satirical address to destitute, alcohol and drug-addicted Russians from oligarchs and authorities profiting from extracting natural resources.

    Stop GOK and Greenpeace Russia were among groups named in a 2018 report by pro-government technologists as “environmental extremists” working for “influential forces in the West” bent on sabotaging strategic industries. The report was widely covered by state-controlled media.

Civil society participation will be crucial to ambitious outcomes at COP25. Parties to the summit, which include all UN member countries and the European Union, should allow activists ample opportunity to air their concerns about the climate crisis and use their combined expertise to help identify solutions. They should also provide activists with a safe space to speak out about the threats they face for carrying out their work.

In addition, parties should publicly commit to robustly carrying out international and regional treaties that protect environmental defenders. One of these treaties is the Escazu Agreement (the Regional Agreement on Access to Information, Public Participation and Justice in Environmental Matters in Latin America and the Caribbean), the world’s first covenant to include specific provisions promoting and protecting environmental defenders. Twenty-one countries have signed the 2018 agreement. But only six countries have ratified it – five shy of the ratifications needed to enter it into force. Chile, which stepped down as COP25 host because of protests stemming from economic grievances, but will still preside over the negotiations in Madrid, should lead by example and ratify the agreement.

COP25 participants should also commit to upholding the Aarhus Convention (the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters), to which Spain is a signatory. The convention – an environmental pact for Europe, the European Union, and Central Asia – grants the public, including environmental groups, an array of rights including public participation and access to information and justice in governmental decisions on the environment, without harassment or persecution. Parties to the treaty, including the EU, and Poland for its crackdown at COP24, have been criticized – including in some cases by the Aarhus Convention’s own oversight body – for flouting these provisions.

COP25 delegates should recognize that to genuinely protect the environment, they also need to protect its defenders – including those unjustly targeted in the name of security.

Re: Anyone experienced NI Kontrol S88 MK2?

 Cache   
Schorsch wrote:Hi Lew,

thanks for your input, let me explain what I am looking for... Sorry for being a bit lengthy now ...

I am a classical trained pianist, was educated for more than 14 years starting when I was 6 years old and, in all modesty, had a very good technique and also very good velocity. Started my work life outside of music, playing in rock bands only then, got a family and did not play piano for about 10 years due to lack of space for a piano. Bought an upright piano after building a house about 25 years ago but still did not play much piano due to professional career, lots of global travel and time for the family. I noticed that I lost much of my former piano technique and, much more important, velocity over time and am now looking for a way to start re-practicing my piano skills. I have to do it in the evening/late evening when using the acoustic piano would disturb the others in the house. I originally bought a NS2EX-88 and decent headphones for this purpose in addition to my NS3-88 and NS3-compact, but joined a second band a few months ago and do not want to carry both my NS3 from one rehearsal room to the other every week, therefore decided to use the NS2EX for the 2nd band. So I need another one which has a decent action for classical training and also provide a very good piano sound to have fun when practicing - the NS2 was ok for that. Since I am using Komplete Player and the Native Instrument Classical Piano Collection I thought about adding the S88 MK2 to it, but want to be sure that the action is as good as the NS2-88 or even closer to an acoustic piano.

Edit: ah yes, it should not be too heavy .. NS2-88 weight is ok but not much more ...

Would appreciate other advices to achieve what I am looking for....

By the way - thanks for the information regarding possible move to subscription, thought about using the current Thanksgiving XXL offer to upgrade from Kontakt to Komplete 12, could be the last offer to get the perpetual software instead of subscription


well, the s88 mkii won't disappoint in that respect. the onloy downside is this. no support for triple pedal and half damping is not stable enough compared to the NS3 and NS2's half damping / soft / sost pedals. taking it around is far lighter than a stage, but be warned, if you have a car, it's wider than a stage 3 by about 5" or more, so needs a different case. Using it as a midi controller for hardware racks is nice, just don't run it over USB.

yep, the sale is definitely worth going for, before all this new crap goes ahead. I sold my S88 MKII, Komplete 12 Ultimate collectors edition and tons of other software licenses for it for just under £1000, but the guy who took it on appreciated it. I ended up giving him licenses I couldn't transfer, worth a fair bit, but those were licenses I still owned before the studio closed and developers restored licenses etc for. It was time for me to call it a day.

depending on whether you just want the s88 itself or go for a package deal with komplete ultimate or komplete ultimate collectors edition, I think you'd be impressed. very intuitive, nice workflow, responsive, etc, action's nice, wouldn't exactly say the best for classical as you'd notice the action between that and a stage 88 series without question, it's a lighter touch.

The New Face of NorthropRealty.com

 Cache   
Real Estate Webmasters (REW) and their customer Northrop Realty are proud to announce the launch of the brand-new northroprealty.com—"leveling up" the benchmark for real estate websites everywhere. We are excited for this first class website reveal", shares Creig Northrop, President and CEO of Northrop Realty. "We are leveling up on what we have done in the past. You do not want to miss it Inspiration for the site design comes from both inside and outside the real estate industry. The result—a fresh, exciting, and totally new perspective on what a real estate site should deliver. "It is obvious from the moment you land on the homepage that this is a higher-level experience," says Tim Collins, REW Enterprise Sales Manager. "Every element has been crafted to provide an incredible user journey, showcasing a final product that Northrop can truly stand behind." REW and Northrop Realty worked closely on this fully customized site to strategically architect the user experience. REW led the creative process, allowing the industry's top developers and designers to reimagine the concept of what a luxury real estate website should be. The result is one of the most highly anticipated website launches in the history of the company.   Beautiful Website Design Unique features for the website start right on the home page. You are first met with a beautifully curated collection of striking, full-height, and beautiful images that draw you in from the moment the page loads. The simple words "Find Home" fuel your excitement. Next you can navigate down the page to learn more about the featured properties, the local communities, and get an introduction to what their brokerage has to offer you. You can also see what people are saying about their services via a beautifully integrated carousel. "We've spent a lot of time working on this amazing luxury design, which we know people will love," adds Collins. "Our team is so excited to see it go live, because this sets a new standard what a real estate website should be." You can easily find and learn more about your areas of interest via Areas We Serve, getting instant access to the hottest listings, community profile and statistics, and a full, filterable list of all of that area's properties. Northrop Realty's website also offers an abundance of tips and guide home buyers and home sellers, and their gorgeously designed blog gives sites visitors the latest market information, with fresh and specialized posts. Leveling Up As A Real Estate Brokerage Last year, The Creig Northrop Team, the the 1 Real Estate Team in the nation*, transitioned to Northrop Realty, a full-service brokerage. This momentous step towards continued growth allows them to serve a broader market, open additional offices, and provide further advancement opportunities for its agents and teams. The new face of northroprealty.com also gives them opportunity to continue to grow their business, giving them a very special tool to continue to recruit the top agents in their market. "We are fired up about the transition to Northrop Realty and northroprealty.com," shares Morgan Carey, REW CEO. "It is a big move— we are ecstatic for the agents at Northrop, because not only will every agent get a super high-end website, but they are also getting a brand-new, state-of-the-art CRM." northrop.com is by a powerful CRM—all Northrop Realty agents will get access to the most powerful CRM in real estate with REW CRM. RelationshipsMatter "One of the best things about this project has been working with Northrop," Collins relates. "I truly admire how much they care and how passionate they are about their business. Their website is a reflection of that—a super high-quality product that is developed entirely around their clients, mission, and values." The relationship between Northrop Realty and REW is what truly lies underneath this incredible website project—through building trust and understanding of goals, together they have created on of the best websites in real estate. Realize your impact. Find a way to be different and do the right thing, always. - Creig Northrop, CEO, Northrop Realty
          

How to override Search Form template to fit the html markup of Bootstrap 4 grouped inputs component ?

 Cache   

Hi all; 

i'm straggling with how to override the default template of the 'Search Form' (and the Search Form Block - same approach i guess) so to fit the html markup grouped inputs of Bootstrap 4

have a look at this default D8 html output of Search Form:

<!-- END OUTPUT from 'themes/custom/mytheme/templates/form/form.html.twig' -->

as you can see Drupal 8, by its default internal rendering process, "creates" form-element to hold the label element and the input element together and "keeps" outside the submit button element alone, and then wrapped all in container to keep everything structured. it's such complicated html output when it comes to adapt that to the Bootstrap 4 logic (btw, it could be any other css framework ..) 

have  look at this code from the official Boostrap4 docs :

<div class="input-group mb-3">
  <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Recipient's username" aria-label="Recipient's username" aria-describedby="button-addon2">
  <div class="input-group-append">
    <button class="btn btn-outline-secondary" type="button" id="button-addon2">Button</button>
  </div>
</div>

it's clear, Bootstrap has completely another approach of doing things (i guess the same with Foundation), so my concern is how to talk kindly to D8 to forgot for a while its logic (nested wrappers or blocks ..) and take over in consideration the Bootstrap logic when rendering Search Form or Search Form Block.

i've already spent 4 days learning the docs, blogs and stackexchange forum about theme hooks, form alter and renderable arrays to get how D8 works internally and i'm absolutely get lost. i'm sure the D8 architects behind scenes who've taken such technical decisions have no intention to complicate the developer's life but honestly, it's little bit hard for me to get the idea.

Any thoughts to do that without making D8 very angry ?

Relaxing at Hilton Head, SC

When I started using the Internet back in 1995, I never thought it would get this far. It's fueling economies and became an entire backbone for large industries.

Here's a little statistic that most tenured developers are having trouble swallowing:

The World Wide Web had their 30th anniversary in March of this year.

Boy, do I feel old!

Since the World Wide Web has evolved over the last 30 years, the number of opportunities for developers has exploded. There is more demand than supply.

Developer should understand that once you have a presence on the Internet, you are considered International! (yes, capital 'I')

Let me repeat that! ANYONE IN THE WORLD CAN HIRE YOU FOR AN OPPORTUNITY IF YOU HAVE THE SKILLS!

Some companies request you work onsite which is not bad, but still of limited thinking. I feel this is not how business will be conducted in the future.

I've mentioned before how to provide freelance services on the Internet where working remote is an awesome opportunity. So some readers wanted to know if this remote work is a fad and know why I felt remote work is the way to go.

The demographics associated with remote work is staggering. Even some developers I know are adamant about companies not letting them work from home.

For me, I'm starting to dig into remote opportunities using Freelancer.com (affiliate link) and Codementor.io and it's turned out quite well so far. I'm working with a number of people across the world which is kind of intoxicating.

I'm hoping this collection will provide you with more insight to why the future of work is remote.

Demographics/Statistics

Planning regulations that are a disgrace | Letter

 Cache   
Councils have their hands tied and cannot prevent people being cramped into rooms below government standards, says Joseph Ejiofor

Your article (The billionaire and the 219 tiny flats: a new low for rabbit hutch Britain?, Money, 23 November) highlighted the injustice of permitted development, which has once again reared its head in Haringey, north London.

Under the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) (England) Order 2015, a developer can convert offices into residential properties without planning permission. A council can only intervene in limited circumstances – where there are transport impacts, contamination or flooding risks, or noise from nearby commercial premises.

The Street review – quietly enraging portrait of Hoxton lives on the brink

Zed Nelson’s powerful documentary focuses on an east London street reeling from the advance of craft beer shops, art galleries and property developers

You know things are bad when an estate agent earnestly makes the case for government action to stop locals being pushed out of their community. This quietly enraging documentary by lifelong Hackney, London, resident Zed Nelson tackles gentrification by looking at Hoxton Street – for years a bastion of East End cockneyism with its pie and mash shop, fruit’n’veg market and more pubs than can possibly be healthy on one street. Nelson filmed for four years, capturing the end of a way of life as the craft beer shops and art galleries move in, followed by property developers catching the whiff of profit.

Craig Peterson
Hey, hello, everybody. Craig Peterson here on the air at WGAN and all over the world on podcasts. You can listen to me by just going to Craig peterson.com slash iTunes that'll bring up the 800-pound gorilla podcast site.

You can also go to Craig Peterson dot com slash iTunes in and listen to my podcasts there, of course, and you can listen on right here to this station also on tune in radio. Additionally, listen to me when I'm on the air, three mornings a week now different stations different coverage. All of those end up on my podcast feed. I appreciate everybody who is going there and giving me a five-star rating. I know there are also a lot of people that are tuning in for the first time. Welcome. Welcome to all of you guys and gals. It is a wonderful, wonderful experience for me because we get new people, and I get to help teach you guys, help you to be able to understand the latest in technology. That's what I talk about every week. I have been in the technology business for many, many decades now. And I am still enjoying it. But you know, it's time for me to start giving back and start trying to help everybody understand what's going on. We spend a lot of time discussing security, what you should do for your home, what you should be doing for your Small Office/Home Office. Many of us, like me, work out of their houses now. That means you have different problems. When we catch China, Russia, and North Korea and then all of the criminal organizations all over the world. We've got all of those people trying to attack us. It gets very, very difficult to keep our data set. safe. And of course also, with all of the new technology, how do you use it? How do you make it work? Just this morning, we were on with a client, and they were meeting this is common, okay. But they were misusing the system that they have in place. They have a system that's in place to allow them to do diagrams, engineering diagrams. And unfortunately, the people they trusted to put it together to configure it, they did not do it anywhere near properly, nothing is SPECT, right, etc. And I know you'd think an engineering firm would understand that the specifications are there for a reason. They're there to be followed, right. And so the system has just been kind of, you know, hack together trying to make this thing work. And there ended up being an air coming up on their screen, and then the Good news, I guess for them is they had us be able to help them because I don't think there's anybody else out there. That is, you know, easy enough to find someone that could help them with this problem because the air looked like it was a licensing problem. The problem was that the database that they were using had lock records on it. Here's how they were using it. They have a database and applications that are running on this underpowered server. They were being accessed remotely by someone using a VPN on a laptop. And you know it all sounds pretty reasonable. The way they were doing it was running the application over on the laptop instead of on the server. So what they should have been doing is using either a virtual machine that that person could Connect remotely or use a terminal server that Microsoft provides. What happens is now he's running the app, the app is accessing the database via the VPN. So far, so good, right? Make sense? This virtual private network is letting his laptop think it's on the corporate network. This company has dozen-plus employees and a server with a database on it. The database is handling all the queries it's going through. Now, when you're talking about databases, I'm trying not to get too technical here, everybody. When you're talking about a database for a program, the database, hopefully, has what is called business rules in it. For instance, if you add a customer, you're not just putting one record in the database, you have a record that gives the basic information about the customer. It includes the name, maybe the address, and then you've got another record that's got the customer contact, who it is. Then there are also records about what they would buy for from us with totals, encounters, and things. It's called D normalizing a database. So all of these different records are created in different tables, maybe even different databases, but it's almost always one database. And so in order to keep all this information properly synchronized, because you don't want to have a record for the company, a business a client, and then have the, the your programs trying to access now how do I get ahold of this client and so it tries to go to the phone number database, so I'm just oversimplifying this slightly. Still, there's no record for the phone number database, you don't want that to happen. So what you do is you use a lock, and the lock helped to enforce these business rules to make sure Hey if I'm creating a new customer, I want to make sure I have their name, their address, the contact that we have. And so a contact record, and the type of company, maybe an inventory item, just in time stuff, whatever it might be, all of that needs to be there in the database. What happens is, there's what's called an atomic transaction. The database program, the software that you're running, identifies the customer contact and his records and returns the records for the company itself, the records for the inventory, and the shipping information records. And then it says, commit this all to the database. At that point, the database already has all of these records and reports it is ready to commit. Everything is there. What was happening with this client is they were on a VPN. And they were running the software over on the laptop. The software on the laptop was saying, Okay, so here's, here's the client we're dealing with, and we've got some new information for them. So let's insert this new information in the database. And so the database does a lock to hold. So we can get a customer number to generate all of this stuff in case somebody else is trying to do it. And then, the VPN connection goes away, or the laptop crashes. Something happens, right? Now, the application could crash crash, and if its on the server, the database could crash on the server, all of that stuff could happen. So when you get right down into it, there are tools to try and recover. But in this case, records were locked. They weren't lost. They were locked. So now when they went back in they were getting in an error message, they really couldn't understand what's going on here. Why? Why am I getting this error? We had to delve into it and contact the app developers and look at the databases, and then we had to remove the locks manually. Now, that's just great. We remove the locks. What that probably means they have a corrupted database, one that was corrupted silently, in a way that no one understands. And in some cases, if it's a real expensive application, it probably has stuff that does continuity checks and makes sure there's congruence between all the records. But that's not the case here. You know what it reminds me I saw the same thing at a doctor's office. They've been using the same software for many, many years. And the software uses a very, very basic database and This database, and I don't even know if I would call it a database, right? But I think of the old retrieve stuff if you're an old-timer like me, and what we used to do with those and which is great because it the beat trivalent, you put data out into files and then allows you to access it very, very quickly. But by today's standards, you would not consider that a database. So over the years, when they had a problem, they would just shut off the computer and then turn it back on, reboot, right. So now we're helping them win factory finish migration of all of their data from this very old it using 30-year-old technology, this ancient system for the doctors practice to a very modern one on Max, and it's cool the stuff they can do. You know, they can immediately while you're sitting there with the doctor, the doctor can check right away, what drugs you're on from other providers because the pharmacy that you use keeps all that information, it's all tied right in real-time. And the doctor can check for possible conflicts of some of these medications and immediately issue the prescription. So it's before you leave your consultation with the doctor. It's all done. It's just amazing for them, and they're having a hard time with some of these concepts. And I get that right. If you're using 30 old 30-year-old design software, which so many people are you know, some of these companies like Kronos, they have some new stuff, but they're selling some stuff that's just decades old. It's just been, you know, modified, modified. And so the basic concepts behind the software aren't there. So they had been turning off their computers. Off and on resetting control, alt, delete, right, all of those things that we've all done before. And their database was as corrupt as can be. And manual processes instead of automated processes to try and get their database up to snuff. So anyways, an engineering firm, we got it taken care of for them. Still, their databases almost certainly got corruptions in it, because they're not doing it as backed by the manufacturer. Right. And you'd think as I said, they know better. And we've got the doctor's office all up and running too. So that's good. So anyway, if you ever want to know a little bit about databases, you just learned it. When we come back. Hey, we're going to be talking about shopping Black Friday, Cyber Monday privacy. That's coming up today, and we're going to talk about Android again, and a whole lot more. Of course, you're listening to Craig Peterson online, Craig Peterson, calm and I'm WGAN

Hello, everybody, Craig heater song here hopefully you're enjoying today's show so far. Let's give a little bit of a rundown of what's coming up. We've got our Black Friday, Cyber Monday shopping information coming right up here shopping and privacy on today's show the number of imposture retailers. It is crucial, and I'm going to help you understand these sites because they are the imposter websites is outnumbering the legitimate websites for retailers and we're getting caught all of the time. We're going to talk a little bit about the IM and MSP shingle to your business security. I saw this again, and some of these ms peas MSS peas are they break from shops is what we call them. In other words, you call them when you have a problem. They're not proactive. But it turns out now not only they're not good at security, but they are a massive target for hackers. We'll talk about how that's a problem for your business and some things you can do about that. Hiring issues. Right now. If you're looking for a job that some of this scam online application stuff with this going on will tell you more targeting and tackling here some ransomware on Windows, which is way way up. Big Data brokers and your information. We talked a little bit last week about what Google's doing with Project Nightingale, which is scary enough, but we're going to get into that.

Facebook is introducing a new payment system. You might remember they were trying to launch this whole cryptocurrency, and it fell flat. Well, we'll talk a little bit about this Calibre wallet that's coming to our way, and cellular throttling and why it cost AT&T a chunk of change. If you use AT&T, you may be getting a check. You will have to fill out some forms. Then I discuss how you can reduce vulnerabilities by ditching Android. It is amazing. There's a study that just came out. And this is an article from Wired magazine that I have up on my website at Craig peterson.com.

Android is not Android is not Android. Every manufacturer has a different version of Android. Now, some of the core modules are the same, but they have to add their device drivers. They typically add bloatware is what we call it to the phones, and of course bloatware, you also see in Windows computers a lot. And those are those ads that come up that lets you get all of these premium features. All you have to do is pay us extra. They're out there doing all of this. And so my warning has always been, if you are considering buying an Android phone, remember that it might only be good for six months. I'm not talking about the hardware; some of the equipment is great. When I say some of the phones only be suitable for six months. It's because the security patches that are going to be needed for your phone will no longer be available. And my accountant came by last week and he just bought a new Android phone I told him don't buy another Android get an apple get an iPhone. If you can't afford a new iPhone by you don't even have to buy us To buy a model or two older iPhone, you will be much much happier and you will be much, much safer. But he got another Android phone. Why did he ask me about or why did he bring up because he knows I'm not an Android fan, right? So. So when we're sitting down, he's, he's not going to be sitting there pulling his phone today, Greg, that's great. No android phone I have because he knows I'm going to be all right. And in this case, it was I bought this phone now a couple of months ago, and I can't get updates for it anymore. Two months, two months, he had that phone, and he couldn't get updates for his Android phone. So it's not even six months in some cases is a lot less than other cases it's longer. If you're going to make the mistake of buying an Android phone, make sure it is the number one model in volume in sales. That manufacturer right now is Samsung. And the goal with that, but here's this story. And I've got some stuff I wrote up about it.

Every android phone is unique. Because the manufacturers can freely create applications, they've got to make changes to the device drivers, the interfaces, the carriers, which then upload their information into the cellular tables that are in it. They might have a different transmitter than was planned for they go for the cheapest, cheapest. And so they've got to rewrite that low part of the operating system completely. You're getting that right now. Well, here's what we have just found. Every Android has pre-installed as of today. Now, remember, I'm saying that some of these phones you can't get security updates after six months and only two months in some cases. Maybe it's a year. But there's a study out right now, that is saying that on average when you buy an Android phone, there are 146 vulnerabilities pre-installed on your phone. So these are bugs in the software that Google has already fixed.
Some of these were zero-day attacks. Many of them weren't. But on average, your new Android phone, according to this study, already has 146 security vulnerabilities before you even open the box. Right. Now, does that make sense to you? Now, if you buy an iPhone, you're going to find that the first thing that you're gonna want to do is you set it up, you put in, your Apple account or you create one they're absolutely free. Apple does not harass you about any of this stuff. They give you iCloud backup automatically. But you're going to set up your iPhone. One of the very first things that it does is it updates itself.


Apple, just with the most recent release of its operating system going to look this up right now. Age of an iPhone six, they just recently stopped supporting their newest operating system that doesn't mean patches for security problems. But their newest operating system does not support the straight-six. It supports the six s but not the straight-six. So I'm looking right now in Wikipedia, and it was released there we go in on 24 14. So right now, while we're talking, it is more than five years old. It's been over five years since it was released. So Apple provided full support soup to nuts support for the software on iPhone sixes for more than five years. And that's very typical for Apple and the iPhones. So if you buy, you can still purchase the six ass I would not personally because it's not going to be fully supported. The next time we come up with another phone, so you know next year or maybe early in 2020. If you are considering buying an iPhone and you want to save some money, you can still buy a seven, or you can always buy an iPhone eight. You can even buy the 10. My mom, who is well into her 80s now, wanted to replace her phone. I think she had an iPhone four and she just last week returned it. I said they go out and buy because she was confused. I said, go out and buy the iPhone XR. That iPhone 10 XR, which she did. It is a great deal. It is a fantastic phone. And it's going to last year another five years with full software support from Apple. So keep that in mind. You can open that brand new box with your Android phone with 146 security bugs in it before you even open it up, and it's not going to update itself to the latest patches. None of that's going to happen. Depending on the phone in the manufacturer. But get an iPhone right forget all of this stuff about Android. I do not sell iPhones I to make money off of iPhones. I do not work for Apple. Okay. My company, however, is a certified Apple authorized Support Center

Hello, everybody, Craig Peterson, here on WGAN live online, you can find me at Craig peterson.com. I often have some of these free pop up pieces of training and I've been doing Facebook Lives lately and just trying to get the word out, helping people understand what is happening in technology today. And we're on show number 1037. Now, the way I number shows is that's actually week number 1037. We should have done some big deal when we hit show 1000 but I, I didn't I probably should have But anyhow, so that's 1037 weeks of being on the air every week, which is pretty amazing when you get down to it and it's thanks for You guys, I so appreciate what you guys do by listening and supporting the stations I'm on and of course listening to the podcast and and the easiest way, by the way if you are an avid listener, if you will, is to go to Craig Peterson comm slash iTunes. And if you wouldn't mind, give me a five-star review and, and let me know what you think of the show right there. And I do read those and a quick shout out to people on the air frequently. I do.

Now, you know, I mentioned a little bit earlier than I do a lot of computer security. And it's a huge deal, and it's very, very difficult. I also mentioned these break-fix shops. Those are businesses that do computer support, but basically, you call them when there's a problem as opposed to them being proactive and taking care of issues for you. Which is what my company and I do alright, so there you go. That's what I do. Well, let's get into this whole MSP thing. I am an MSP RIR, and MSP managed security services provider. And I want to roll the clock back because I have something here that I remember pretty well. And then I want to talk about it because I have a cup of coffee in front of me. And it's sitting on a napkin. And so I want to tell you a little bit of background. And this has to do with experience, really, and knowledge if you're old enough to remember the whole y2k thing. And the biggest problem with y2k was, hey, and we've been writing software for years that rely on next year, being One year more than this year. Back then, we had to be very careful with all of our data and how much storage we were using. Instead of storing the year as we do now as 1975, we would save the year as just 75. Hey, it's not going to matter for another, what, 35 years. Y2k is going to cause the world to come to an end because nothing's going to work. That is, it had only been 50 years that this code. And we all know that there was a whole industry that developed to help companies make sure they are y2k compliant. Some people wrote software that reviewed other software to make sure that these mistakes weren't in it. And then y2k came and went with very, very few incidents.


Now, the reason people were worried about was legitimate. If you had an older GPS this year, say one that was more than five years old, maybe ten years old, you might have noticed that it stopped working? Did you see that? And the reason these things stopped working was the same problem everybody was worried about and y2k while almost the same problem. And that is counters rolled over from the GPS satellites. If you didn't have a big enough counter on your GPS receiver, you were in big trouble. The satellites themselves were fine. It was your little GPS receiver that's built into your navigation system, right.


Huge deal. You had to buy a new one. Well, it's a much bigger deal for the bank, but thinking what else was happening around the year 2000. I started building commercial internet properties as soon as it became legal because I'd been on the internet since the early 1980s. I've been designing and helping to design and implement internet solutions since the early 1980s. And I've been doing network work, and computer network works professionally since 1975. I've been doing security work, managed security for my clients since the early 1990s. There was a lot of work done out there. I go back now and think about the late 1990s. My coffee mug is sitting here on a napkin. And you know, you go to a coffee shop, the napkins are three by three inches square, give or take. And if you are getting a muffin, you might get a napkin that you could unroll, and that's maybe what eight and a half by 11. Give or take, right? It's pretty big. Well, in the mid to late '90s, people were going to specific coffee shops. I remember this so well out in Silicon Valley in California. They went to these p coffee shops because it was where angels hung out. Angels are people who if you don't know, invest money in early-stage startups, in other words, when a company is first going, and so if I were today to talk to an angel and say, Hey, I need some money, the angel would say, Okay, well, let's look at the business plan. We go through all the financials, I better have some customers already some sort of a proof of concept, minimum viable product that I can show them and say, yeah, look at this is looking really good. So I need 1,000,005 million to take this to the next level. Well, back then, in the late 90s. They would sit and have coffee with one of these angel investors. And they'd say, hey, I've got an idea for a business and they pull out a napkin. And they take a, pencil and they would sketch on the back of that napkin. What their idea why it's because it's going to be great. And the investors just based on that napkin, no product, no team, nothing but an idea. Based on that napkin, the investors were giving out five and $10 million checks to these people who, in my mind, were, were, fraudsters. You know, they convince themselves that they had the best idea in the world, and they were going to become the next billionaire. Maybe the first billionaire under 20 years old. A lot of these investors, Of course, we're a little older, and they didn't know how to deal with the internet. They didn't know much about it and very immature back in the late 90s. Although I'd already been on it for 30 years, well, you know, around it for 30 years and on for more than 20 then, so they were giving them crazy money just based on a napkin. So what does everybody do? Well, where's the money while the money is on the internet, and it's out in the Bay Area of San Francisco, San Jose. So I'm going to go out there. And some of these people, literally, I knew people that did this, they hopped on an airplane. They flew out to San Jose, with the intent of going to one of these coffee shops or about a half a dozen of them, that were known to be frequented by angel investors and venture capitalists. And it's kind of like somebody flying to LA Working Yeah, I'm an actor, and they're working in a coffee shop. And they're Bariza hoping to get spotted by that director to get their big break. A big problem. And because everybody saw that the internet was the place to be. Everybody hung up a shingle about the internet. So stick around. We're going to talk more about this. We're going to tie this into exactly what's happening today, to you to your business, when it comes to security. And so many of these firms that are out there right now trying to sell you stuff. So stick around. We'll be right back.

You're listening to Craig Peterson, right here on WGAN and online pretty much everywhere and at Craig peterson.com stick around. We'll be right back.

Hello, everybody, welcome back, Craig beater song here. Of course, we're on WGA. And we are online, Craig Peterson calm. And good news. I'm on pretty much every podcasting platform out there. And I've had more than 20 million podcast downloads since I started podcasting 15 years. The numbers are picking up. We just had got another 100,000 downloads recently. I'm pretty jazzed with that. It is all because of you guys. The more you are of you who subscribe to my podcast, the more it gets noticed, and the more people hear about it, and of course, then what that means is, we're able to help more people, and that's why I'm here. It is a labor of love. Alright, so let's get into the rest of the story from what I was talking about earlier, which is if you missed it, I talked a little bit about the history of the internet and internet investment. These companies that were spun up from a business plan that was nothing more than a rough sketch on the back of a napkin at a coffee shop. Okay. It's a big deal here. But we'll let's think about some of the biggest failures on the internet. And you've heard of some of these. You've probably heard of like pets.com let me just run through a few here. Ship raise 62 million dollars and failed. That's SHYPBP raised 149 million before they got wiped out. Juicer, all Yeah, that's a reasonably recent one 118.5 million pepper tap 51 million Sprague 56 million yak yak 73 million. And you can go online, look for some of these things. I found an article that had 323, startup failures, and post-mortems for all of them going back, just kind of way back. But, you know, back to 2014, which isn't the start of the internet, right. That's not the reach. The time we're talking. Okay. Timo meter, and this is a great one, by the way. Multiply $30 times one client times 24 months. Wow, we'll be rich. Okay. They got funding, right. Why didn't we get funding? Why didn't you get funding right with your great idea? So everybody started throwing their hat into the ring. They were going to these coffee shops out in Silicon Valley pitching and hopefully come with a good idea.

Of course, the investors wanted to have a billion-dollar company. Hey, it's not so bad. I put, you know, 5 -10 million in and I'm able to take a billion dollars out with a big company that's got a 5 billion valuation right. Wow, we're all going to be rich. And of course, that is the extremely rare case. So let's fast forward to today. And talk a little bit about what's happening right now. I've got an article up on my website that we put together called "I am an MSP shingle and your business security." Think of that word shingle. We talked about all of these. I don't know what to call these people, because they were out trying to get money for their ideas and were quite convincing. They weren't thieves, necessarily, although some of them probably were. But they didn't know any better. They didn't know what they should have known. Today, of course, the internet's much more mature. It's still not fully mature. It's changing every day, the way things are sold and marketed and used, and everything on the internet is just constant change. But right now, what are we talked about on this show before when it comes to open jobs, we know that the economy pretty much has full employment. But for the past three years, I think ever started ever since I started running the webinars for the FBI info guard program, ever since I started running those. There's indeed been somewhere between one and a half and 3 million open cybersecurity jobs. So Let's get right down to the economics of all of this. And I, I was following some stuff, and I've been developing material carefully in the industry because this is kind of the industry that I'm in. And I found out something that I thought was just kind of a DA moment, right? That's when you hear something, and it's I should have thought of that. I don't know why I didn't think of that. Right. We all have those. And so I had this moment, which is, if you have been a break-fix shop of what you've been doing is you take a call from somebody, and you sell them a computer, or you g a call from somebody, and you go out, and you spend two hours with them and you charge them three or 400 bucks for that service call. First of all, I don't think that serves the customer very well because the customer is going to be worried about calling you and the poor person that's having the problem doesn't want the boss to get upset because they called you right? So that's not helping the business very much. And on the other side, if you're trying to sell hardware nowadays, you know, we'll sell someone at $3,000 $4,000. workstation for one of their employees to use not even a high end one. And our margin is like 50 bucks on it. Nowadays. It obviously depends on the manufacturer, but there's like no margin in that business anymore. So if you were faced with that, if you owned a company, that all they really did was they sold some computer hardware when there was a refresh. And you went out and you did some repairs and some telephone support. And what would you be thinking? Why are retailers closing on you're basically a retailer? That's the business you're in. You're competing against Amazon, you're competing against Dell online, you're competing against all these guys. So what I've noticed happening, and I've noticed it because my company is what's called a master managed security services provider. We're a master security services provider because we work with these smaller companies that don't have the security expertise, and they know it.

Now there, there's a lot of people that don't know it. We just talked about all of these failures. Back in the boom days of the internet, hundreds of millions of dollars, billions just went down the drain. So some of these people think they know enough, but they don't. So they'll come to somebody like us, who is a master managed security services provider, and we'll be the people behind the scenes designing the networks and security infrastructure. They can meet the DFARS requirements or ITAR or HIPAA or PCI or some of them, many, many TLA's and FLA's out there, right. TLA is is a three-letter acronym, and an FLA is a four-letter acronym. So in business, we all have those. But that's what they'll do. Now, I got to tell you, the vast majority and I'm going to say 99% from my personal experience. And so I don't know what the real numbers are. I don't think anybody has the actual numbers for this. But, and I'm going to say 99% because I have never seen an exception to this rule. But 99% of these companies out there don't know enough to make the right decisions or to help the customer make the right decisions when it comes to security. Now, this presents a huge problem for everybody. Because we have all of these people who were PC repairs and Windows support people, these companies relied on Windows coming out with a new version from Microsoft. And it will work on your old hardware because you need more memory, you need more space on your desk, you need to have a faster computer to run Windows eight, right? And then Windows 10 comes out. And a lot of people what they've done over the years is they say, you know, my machine is old, it's slow. It's cluttered. I could probably reload windows and get my speed back. But I just assumed by new computer, and that's what these people relied on for literally a couple of decades here. You are in the crosshairs of hackers if you're a business and even if you're just a regular home user. Oh my gosh, the problems you guys all have because now the hackers have figured out that these companies that call themselves managed services providers, but don't have enough knowledge about security, to protect even themselves adequately. These so-called managed services providers have now become a significant target for the hackers, including nation-state, think about it for a second. If you've hired a managed soft or managed services company of some sort, you've given them access to all of your computers, and they probably have your passwords, right? They have all of this stuff. There is an attack going on right now against Connect wise and directly against Ms. Peas. They've scanned the internet to find anybody that mentions MSP on their website, and then they start attacking them. Cause they have the keys to the kingdom, your kingdom. So here's the advice to minimize your risk.

We had two weeks ago an attack that hit an IT services firm Everest, which is a subsidiary of NTT, one of the largest MSP is in Spain. They had to shut everything down, cut network links, try and figure out what happened. And in this case, it was ransomware. But they're also going straight for the data. It's happening every day. Okay, this is one of the largest, so yeah, my gosh, Here's what you have to do. You have to treat your managed security services provider as an insider risk. Just like any employee, you have your own IT staff. They are a risk to your business. They have access to All of your intellectual property, your client lists your employee records, right? They have access to all of it. So treat them like an insider. Understand the risks, do not let them keep your passwords or other information. And what we do for our clients is we never keep them. We cannot tell you what your password is, and we have to reset it. And we use specialized software, that when we access one of our client's computers, it keeps track of the right passwords and those are changed frequently and can be changed. Every time a technician connects, it is a huge deal, there you go. Some people are hanging out their shingle, saying I'm an MSP. Be very careful if you treat them like an insider, and mitigate your risks. All right, when we come back, by the way, in the next hour, we're going to be talking about online shopping. You're listening to print Peterson on WGAN.

Hey, hello everybody, Craig Peterson here on WGAN online at Craig peterson.com. I appreciate everybody being with us today. We went through a bunch of stuff in the last hour. And we talked about, you know, MSP insider threats a little bit. I want to finish up the whole thing about insider threats. People have been asking if they should treat any managed services provider, break-fix shop, or any third party who is taking care of our computer equipment as an insider with a potential insider threat. So how do we treat insiders and this whole insider threat thing? Well, I should do a training on this up pop-up training.

The veryfirst thing you have to do is figure out what is your most valuable asset in your business. Now, for most of us, it's our intellectual property. Frankly, those are our plans, our designs, our engineering diagrams, and it's our money, you know, bank account information, employee information, anything that could cause you to fail an audit. If you get audited, do you have all of the records? But if you are in a business that requires that you have security, what's going to happen when they come in and audit, okay, so any of that sort of data is information that you should protect. That means a lot of different things. I've taught some courses on this before, but it includes things like segmenting your networks so that people who don't need to get it at data can't get the data. In this day and age, for the truly paranoid, we see this more and more, it's called a zero-trust network. So people or machines can only get at things that you explicitly allow. So it isn't as though anyone in accounting can get to this, it's this person in the accounting can get to this. So all of your data is segmented. And again, don't let them keep your passwords. Try and do some of the administration stuff yourself, at least on the password side. Change the password and save it in an encrypted password manager to keep track of those passwords. Then when you have to call your managed services provider or your break-fix shop or, or your niece, whoever it is, who's taking care of your computers, you give them the password for that machine. They can get on and can do their thing. They get everything working, you watch them as they're working, which is another thing that we do. We're only on the machine when there's someone else watching, remotely. And we record all those sessions. By the way, anytime any one of our techs gets onto any machine, we have someone watching them. That is important. When the tech completes their work change the password.

The whole idea here is that they don't need to have them. And as I mentioned before, we've seen a growing number of managed services providers from around the world being targeted and compromised by hackers, including the large ones. That goes to show again, and even the big guys aren't as concerned about security. Or maybe they don't know enough about security as they should be. I was out at a prospect's place just a couple of days ago. We're talking with them about their managed services provider that they had. I mentioned earlier, this 99% number, and this is my number. But I say 99% because I have yet to find a single managed services provider that is doing security reasonably well. I have yet to find one. And that's kind of bad news, frankly, when you get right down to it. And so that's why I say 99%, right, I give the 1%. Now, I know there are Managed Security Services Providers that know how to do it, but this is a challenging world. Bottom line, is if you can find someone that you trust 100% implicitly, they are not keeping your password, not getting into machines, without permission, then you have to trust them as an insider, basically, an employee that you kind of trust, but you don't absolutely imagine and make sure obviously, you keep those employees in line too. We're going to be coming up here in just very soon, actually another segment or two, with what you need to worry about for your holiday shopping. I want to start this whole thing off by talking about what you should be doing and how to verify a site and whether it's legitimate because it turns out there are three times more fake shopping sites than there are real ones out there. So be very, very careful of that. Now, before we get into that, let's do about these bogus hiring scams, it confuses me because when you get down to it, we have such high employment rates right now. It makes you wonder why the bogus ones are having such success out there. I don't know. Maybe people are just trying to look for a raise because there are so many great job opportunities. I don't know. Okay, employment is at an all-time high. With the economy buzzing like this, finding workers for seasonal part-time work is getting harder and harder. Think about what Black Friday means. Black Friday is when retailers finally become profitable or "in the black" as far as books go. It's not quite as true as it used to be. It used to be that most of the year retailers operated in the negative and it took until right around Thanksgiving before things turned around, because that's when people start shopping for the holidays. So these employers are now having to compete with the spam employment opportunities on top of it all. And the whole online application process is just fraught with opportunities for fishers to glean all the information they could need to impersonate you. So you've got to be very careful, and one of the things you can do, and this is the same thing if you're looking to purchase online, is verify that you did not end up on a scam site. So bottom line, if you're looking for a job, and most people are going to start their job search on Google, which is an okay place to start, and they might top in or type in seasonal opportunities. Just yesterday, I was sitting with my wife, and she did a download to the latest version of Microsoft PowerPoint. We subscribe to Office for all of our employees, including my wife, as she helps out with the business. Anyway, she did a Google search, and instead of "office," she typed "orifice," and you know slip up, and you know how it is when you kind of automatic type sometimes. She typed for Microsoft for this download, and we got results that were all scam websites. It was all set up to make you think that you were on the Microsoft Office website and that you were downloading legitimate Microsoft Office software. I was sitting right next to her. I suspect many of you might have clicked on some of that stuff, you never know what's going to happen? Because again, she was automatic typing, she didn't notice she had mistyped it. And she might not have seen these sites weren't a legitimate site. So you have to keep an eye on that. If you're looking for part-time jobs and they come up in the Google results, you might try typing in the website directly. So let's say you want to take a part-time job, but Walmart or Target or something, go to the Target.com website and make sure it's legit. How do you make sure it's legit? Well, we're going to talk about that a little later in this hour. We're going to talk about verifying the shopping sites, but if you go to their website, and if there are multiple pages on the website that all look legit like there's a real shopping cart, there's real stuff online, there's real privacy, disclaimers, etc. That's probably a real target site, and it's not a scam site. And then you can go ahead and fill out the Hiring information. I would be cautious about putting in things that are a little too personal. You want to give them your background and a way to contact you. But be careful with things like your social security number or bank account numbers. Many employers nowadays are asking for your social media account information. So it's one thing to say while you can go to twitter.com slash Craig Peterson and you'll see my Twitter feed. It's quite another to give them access to your Twitter account, and some of them are asking for that. They want your Twitter account username and password and your Facebook username and password. Because many times we are sending stuff using direct messages back channels, hidden channels that they're not going to see when they go to your public-facing Twitter page or Facebook page. And so Martin Employers are saying hey, listen, we want to have a good inside look at your social media account. So I would not give them any that sort of information. Remember if it is a scam, even if it's not a scam if they get hacked, which has happened before to target all of the TJ Maxx, guys, etc. that information could leak out. Alright, so I'll stick around when we come back we're going to talk about tackling ransomware and Windows. And we're going to also talk about a new payment system that's was announced and then we'll finish up with what you should be doing for the holidays.

Me M-E at Craig peterson.com couldn't be much simpler than that could it.

Let's get into this. We got a couple more quick security articles. Just general information here about Windows and Facebook, and then we're going to get into Black Friday scams, and of course it doesn't just go for Black Friday, this is throughout much of the holiday shopping season; actually, these all apply all year. Then we have these fake retailer sites I'll tell you about them how they're popping up and, and a little bit more about the signs. We covered that in that last segment a little bit when we were talking about the hiring scam, so stick with us today. We got a lot more to cover here before we're off the air, hard to believe two hours, can go by so fast. So let's start with windows here. Ransomware has been a problem for a long time. And for those that don't know, ransomware is where some software gets on your computer. There are a lot of mechanisms for nowadays, but it gets on your computer, it encrypts your files so that they become useless to you. And then it asks for money, the typical payment in Bitcoin, which is, by the way, attributed to be the number one reason Bitcoin Bitcoin has risen in price, and I can see that.


There is a new study released. We've got more than 1 billion Windows operating system powered PCs in use in the world today. And that makes them a huge target for hackers. Now, just this morning, I was talking with one of our engineers, and I was saying how impressed I am with Microsoft recently. Since Balmer and Gates left, it has been a fantastic, amazing company. They've been able to maintain compatibility with older software right now for the most part while increasing their security, and they have turned a lump of coal into something that's, that's worthwhile, right? I still don't think it's anywhere near as good as something like Mac OS is on the apple side. But not everybody can run Mac OS, not everybody understands it. So major kudos to our friends over at Microsoft. It's amazing. But they are a big target, and they do have a large attack surface. In other words, there are a lot of things in Inside Microsoft Windows that can be and are currently under attack. You have to be kind of leery about some of these potentially unwanted applications that are on your machine. You might have heard me mentioned before some of the bloatware that gets installed by the computer sellers. And what they do is they load up all their programs. And they get paid. It's like five bucks. They'll get paid to load 50 different games, and you know, anti-spyware, software, and McAfee or Norton, all software that is practically useless to you. And then you have to spend hours removing that bloatware from your computer. But it's not just the bloatware that's out there. There are crypto coin miners installed on our computers, unbeknownst to us. There are all kinds of vulnerability exploits Trojans, and nowadays, ransomware and what's called file-less malware. Fileless malware is why 100% of the antivirus solutions that are out there today don't work anymore because it's a file, so it never hits the disk, so they don't have a chance to examine it. So having white label type of antivirus not white-labeled, but whitelist might be beneficial. But even in those cases, there's a lot for us consider. Now we're finding ransomware that's crypto locking, is growing, the number of attacks is growing. The number of successful computer accesses is growing. Now, to me, the most disappointing part of the numbers as I've looked through this in some detail, in this report that came out.

The thing that disappoints me the most is much of the time. They are using exploits that have been around available for a couple of years or more. Many of these were patched by Microsoft, Adobe, and Oracle years ago. These are the ones that upset me the absolute most. We see now, the most significant year-on-year increase of any malware in the ransomware community, almost 75% increase since last year. So if you know someone that has had ransomware and I bet you you do somewhere in your circle of acquaintances, I don't think he would have to go out too deep right. I think it is about a 75% increase. According to Bit Defender, the number of ransomware reports dropped in the first half of the year due to one big hacking group called Grandacrab, who throttled down their efforts due to ramped-up law enforcement efforts. Now, ransomware is rising again, as these new ransomware groups are emerging to fill the void left by Grandacrab. I'm not going to go through the names of all of this different type of ransomware. These profit-motivated cybercriminals and they're just spending a little bit of time and a little bit of money because the to buy this ransomware. Some of this stuff is even licensed now. Where they have to, they download it for free. They can try it out on so many people, and then they have to go to a registration site and buy a license to use the ransomware. And then off it goes in that can be just 100 bucks. It's incredible. Here but they're also saying that they're seeing reports of miners and Phylis malware out there too. So coin miners, those are where you go to a website, then you know how the site says, Hey, can we send you news updates and you say allow or disallow yes or no on that you've seen those before, right? Those are not all illegitimate. Many of them are, most of them are legitimate. But that's how the coin miners are working. And so they will embed some code in a website, a legal site, and the coin miner will then start using your web browser to mine for various types of like Bitcoin type currencies that are out there. Okay. So we see a lot more in the ransomware style. We've got to be very, very careful. And about 40% of the population of the 1 billion people that use Windows about 40% admit the They have not applied security patches even though they're available. So make sure you ask them nowadays you don't have to go out and spend a lot of money to buy a license for Windows, you can pay monthly. And you don't have to worry about Windows upgrades anymore, because included. That's what we do with all of our customers; we include everything. Okay, we try and make it very, very easy for them. This article, as well as all of the other ones I've talked about today, and a few others we're not going to be able to get to today are all up on my website at Craig peterson.com. Please visit me there, you'll learn about the pop-up pieces of training. I have some of the Facebook Lives. The themes for the week and all of that stuff. You know, I'm not going to spam you with marketing messages. I'm just trying to get this out the truth out, Craig Peterson dot com. Hey, stick around. We'll be right back here listening on WGAN and online as well.

Hello, everybody, welcome back, Craig Peterson here on WGAN and online at Craig Peterson calm and on your favorite podcasting app. And please do spend a minute and subscribe if you haven't already. Well, we talked about cryptocurrencies, many, many times, when they first started coming out for started rising to prominence. I had set up a little mining operation to figure it out, and I had my wallet and everything and, and it was a little too late in the game to find Bitcoin, like right off the bat. That's why I stopped because I was only interested in finding out more about the technology. So you have to use it if you want to understand it. That's kind of the bottom line on it. And I looked at it as kind of a gimmick, and of course, we now know that the cybercriminals online found Bitcoin To be phenomenal when it comes to being able to get paid in a more or less, kind of a quiet way, right? Where people are not aware of where the money's coming or going. Now, remember that Bitcoin is not anonymous. None of this data is genuinely anonymous, bottom line, but it is kind of, you know, private, more or less. So they use it for pain ransoms. I attended an excellent briefing by the Secret Service about how they tracked down some of the bad guys that are using Bitcoin. And it was frankly fascinating, and how they've been successful at that. So don't think that you're going to somehow because you're using a cryptocurrency going to be out of the reach of the hands of the law because you're not going to be okay criminals will get caught. But we had another end enterprise, and I don't like it. Some people would probably call them a criminal enterprise called Facebook out there. And you might remember Facebook decided they were going to come up with this whole new network, they're going to do Libra and it was going to be a cryptocurrency. Now, cryptocurrencies are getting to be a serious business. You have, for instance, the government of China active in developing a cryptocurrency. China frankly, wants to be able to have a currency that they control that they can peer into the becomes the International Monetary standard, instead of the U.S. dollar. So China has been working on this for about five years, and frankly, next year, I think you can expect that China is going to have a state back state-sponsored cryptocurrency that they're going to be pushing all over the world. They are going to try and get oil valued in their cryptocurrency. I think that's a bit of a problem for us here in the U.S. and will be a challenge for our economy too. But when we look at somebody like Facebook, where they're trying to set up this network, called the Libra network, I was thinking good thoughts about it.


I know you are wondering, wait a minute, is this the Craig I've grown to know over the years What's going on here? I was kind of happy about it, as it possible for anyone anywhere in the world to have a financial transaction with you. For instance, I know some ladies who are in Africa, and they're impoverished women and trying to make ends meet and just have not been able to earn $100 a month. And many of these women are brilliant. Some of them are entrepreneurs, and they want to get a business going. And this particular group of women is now making themselves available after a friend of mine trained them here been in some technology, how to use computers and how to be a virtual assistant system. They are making themselves available as a virtual assistant. What could be more accessible for these women, and for the people who might want to hire them, than to make their transactions a cryptocurrency of some sort? A currency that they could use at their home that we could use at home. A currency that we could trust to a high degree. Remember, coins like if you have a U.S. dollar bill that you want to spend, the only reason it's worth anything, is because it's considered to be Legal Tender backed by the United States government. Now it isn't supported by silver anymore or gold anymore but deemed to be reasonable, legitimate currency. Initially, the Facebook Libra network announced they had a dozen or more of the foremost financial institutions in the United States. They would all work together and cooperate in developing this currency. Now, several reasons got squashed, not the least of which is governments and wanting to tax them and not being able to track some of the transactions easily. But I'm sure Facebook would have provided the governments with all the transaction information they wanted. Okay. So frankly, it would make it even easier for governments to track transactions than it is now. But the thing I loved about it was thinking about these women that my friend trained over in one of the poorest countries in Africa and how it would change their lives. I don't know if you've watched those some of this stuff here on micro-investments or watch how they're working. There's one organization called Shanta (https://www.shantafoundation.org) that quite impresses me. They're working in Myanmar. Interesting what they're doing, but when the basic idea with micro-investments is that somebody like you, were I, we might put $1,000 into this. And you've got someone in some countries somewhere that wants to buy a cow for the milk, and they're going to sell the milk, or they want to buy a goat or for the milk or whatever it might be micro to us. And so they're lent $100 to start a business. And they go out, and they get that business going, and they repay the loan, and that money is just put right back into another loan to another person that wants to do it. I've been following these micro-investments, and am very, very impressed with what many of these places are doing. And that led me to notice something else, which was the presence of phones, just regular cell phones that can send text messages, not smartphones. But the presence of phones and cell service coming into these tiny, tiny villages. And how most women were taking these phones. And we're using them to create businesses to support themselves and their families. Just absolutely amazing and many of these women, in fact, I think almost all of the ones my friends been teaching our single women, they've been either abandoned by their husbands Or the kids, Father, whatever you might want to call them. And they have to do all of the support. And so they're spending a whole month's wages, they're spending $100 to go through this program, this one-month long program that my friend runs. And so she's been looking for donations of laptops, just regular windows laptops, to help these women out as well. But these women get these cell phones and just with the cell phone now, there is some technology out there right now we don't use it in this country. Still, in several other developing countries that they can send money to people and receive money to people just using text messages. So just using their cell phones brought them out of extreme poverty. Now you know, we have poverty in the U.S., but poverty in the new in the U.S. looks like somebody that's upper class in these countries does. Okay. We don't know what poverty is. What we call poverty isn't, you know,' it's just astounding to me. So I got excited when I saw this whole idea behind the Libra network and what Facebook was doing with Calibra wallet. So we got to go for break, and we're going to come back I'm going to finish this up because there's something new and exciting that's happening in this space now. And then we're going to get into our Black Friday scams, and some more fake retailer sites. If you want more details, you're going to have to go to my website at Craig Peterson dot com. I'm not going to be able to cover it entirely in either the radio show today here on WGAN or my podcasts. You can find my Podcasts on pretty much every podcasting platform or my website, Craig Peterson dot com stick around, more to come

Hey, Craig Peterson, back here on WGAN. I can't believe it's been two hours since we've been together today. Man does time fly. So going back because I want to finish up our last topic here about the microtransactions and about what our friends at Facebook had been doing trying to put a cryptocurrency in place. It completely fell apart about a month ago. Facebook is planning to start rolling out something called Facebook Pay on messenger and on Facebook itself. Today, it's going to be initially available for fundraisers person to person payments, event tickets, in-game purchases, and from some pages and some businesses that are on the Facebook marketplace. And they're planning on bringing this to more people and more places. They're going to be adding not just messenger, but adding Instagram and WhatsApp to this. So basically, what they're trying to do now is use this technology to make it possible for people to pay each other no matter where they are. Now, you already know because you're just listening, you already know that I think that's a unique idea. And that is going to lift people out of poverty. Just like capitalism has, it's the best system the world has ever invented, to lift people out of poverty. And if Facebook successful this, they will save lives as well. And of course, there's the other side, Facebook's going to make a ton of money on this. Because they're going to, obviously they'll have some form of transaction fees, and they'll be making some money over that. Okay, so we got more stuff we're not going to get to today because I want to get to the Black Friday scams and the retail stuff. There either is a new secret consumer score that you have never heard of before. And I am not, unfortunately, to get time to do much. With that, I say now it's been out there for probably the better part of a decade. I found some information about it from the New York Times back in 2012, and the Wall Street Journal back in 2018. There is a scoring system that's keeping track of us, and one with which you are probably not familiar. So that's up on my website, Craig peterson.com and 18 T's and green to pay $16 million to settle a legal dispute over smart throttling smartphone plans. So they came to that agreement with the Federal Trade Commission. Okay, so now into Black Friday scams. These are happening all the time. They are souped-up during Black Friday and Cyber Monday when there's a lot of people buying stuff online, and I'll let's get into it here. This shopping fever lasts for about four days right now. Some sites like Walmart start on Wednesday, and others are ready underway here. But let's go into some of these top scams. Man, we've only got about 10 minutes left here.

So number one, this is a great article. It's from Heimdal Security dot com. I've got it up on my website at Craig Peterson dot com. If the website insistently asks you to download its application. Now, we already probably have apps from merchants. I've got Amazon, for instance, there are apps from Walmart Target, Ollie Express, Rakuten, Barnes and Noble, and the little guys are having a hard time competing there, but they try nonetheless. Now, a lot of these websites are going to talk you into downloading their mobile apps. And there's nothing wrong with that. But remember that not all of these retailers are legit, and not all of the legitimate retailers the apps are legitimate because it's rare that they would be developing the app themselves. So they probably had a third party do it. Who knows, right? So don't just willy nilly install apps from retailers are going online number two, the website looks fishy. And of course, this is pH fishy. And what that means is you might be on a cloned site. Right now, there are I was saying three earlier, but I was wrong. According to research from Venafi, they were looking at what is called TLS certificates. These are SSL certificates used basically if the website says HTTPS, then they're using TL. So they examine these. And they found that there are four times more fake retailer sites than the real one. Okay? So there are typos, squatting domains. I mentioned one of them earlier in the show today that my wife accidentally typed orifice instead of office when she's tr

With a manufacturing capacity we can scarcely imagine, the Chinese curtainwall industry has been found by Canadian authorities to pose a threat. Tariffs protect us for now.
Last summer, the Canadian International Trade Tribunal had to decide whether to keep Canadian tariffs in place on unitized curtainwall modules imported from China, or to let them expire as&

The decision turned on whether allowing the tariffs to expire would result in “injury” to the Canadian curtainwall manufacturing industry.

The CITT sent out questionnaires and held hearings involving 40 industry representatives. It decided to “continue” its finding...in other words, the tariffs will stay in place for another five years. Those tariffs, originally applied in 2014, amount to close to 19 per cent on Jangho products, almost 55 per cent on Yuanda products and over 161 per cent on all other unitized curtainwall products originating in China. The effect of the tariffs, according to the evidence at the CITT hearing, was to effectively eliminate these imports from our market by 2016.

What was more interesting than the decision itself was the evidence presented at the hearing that is outlined in the Statement of Reasons attached to the decision. This is public information available on the CITT website under Decisions - Anti-Dumping Injury Decisions.

It’s a long, dry document, so here are some highlights.

The Chinese powerhouse
One of the eye-opening things in the statement are the details about Chinese manufacturing capacity. The total capacity in China for manufacturing unitized curtainwall specifically is estimated in the document at 156 million square meters per year. It’s noted that this is a low figure, since it’s referring to only unitized curtainwall modules and other kinds of unitized facade are not considered. The Tribunal estimates there are about 200 curtainwall manufacturers in China.

Just looking at the two Chinese manufacturers participating in the hearing, Yuanda and Jangho, the Tribunal found their production capacity to be approximately 48 million and 13.5 million square meters, respectively. Each Yuanda and Jangho plant can produce around three million square meters per year.

By comparison, total Canadian manufacturing capacity was estimated by the Tribunal to be one million square meters. To put it even more starkly, “Yuanda’s unused capacity at the end of the Period of Record exceeded the apparent size of the entire Canadian market.”

So one Chinese curtainwall manufacturer could replace all the curtainwall produced in Canada by adding a shift at one of its plants.

The relevance of our relative production capacities to the Tribunal is not hard to understand. If selling curtainwall at low margins was going to tie up a Chinese plant’s production with unprofitable work, the Chinese manufacturer would be unlikely to do that. But as the situation exists, the low-margin work would simply be eating up some spare capacity. Certainly worth it as an investment to grab international market share.

I visited China in 2010 and the reality of a country with over a billion citizens is something it is impossible to comprehend without seeing it firsthand. Container ships covering the ocean from horizon to horizon, waiting to enter the Shanghai harbour. Tower cranes everywhere, as far as the eye can see, across the entire western half of the city. A train that floats on magnets and takes you from the airport to downtown Shanghai in 20 minutes at 400 kilometers per hour. We think we are advanced and wealthy here in Canada. I hate to break it to you, but we are a backwater by comparison.

Which perhaps raises the question why a Chinese manufacturer would be interested in grabbing a share of our insignificant market. The Tribunal wondered the same thing and directed the question to Dr. Hon-Bo Wang of Yuanda USA. Wang cited Canada’s “stable demand, stable political situation, strong legal systems, high per capita income and large cities.” So it appears we are doing at least some things right. Compare the environment an exporter would face in many other parts of the world where demand and regulations could shift suddenly with unpredictable regime changes and wars; where property and bank accounts are not safe from corrupt officials; and where poor wealth distribution leaves investments vulnerable to sudden shifts in economic fortunes that impoverish paying customers.

These factors make Canada a sort of partial hedge against instability in China’s other markets. One downside of having such massive capacity is the need to constantly feed the beast with new work. The Tribunal notes that demand in China has softened recently as its government has taken measures to cool off an overheated real estate market. Attempts to reduce the exposure of Chinese banks to bad loans has led to a tighter financing environment for developers. The excess supply caused by this slowdown has created fierce competition in the domestic market. Far East Global, another Chinese manufacturer, described the Chinese domestic market as “fragmented and oversupplied” and prone to “disorderly competition.”

The Statement added some interesting economic forecasting to this analysis, predicting slowing global growth rates for the next year or two. The International Monetary Fund is calling for 3.5 and 3.6 per cent growth in the world economy in 2019 and 2020. But the big question marks are Brexit and Trump’s chaotic trade policy. A severe disruption in Europe coupled with the Tweeter-in-Chief capriciously shutting down trade would leave Chinese firms in a lot of trouble. While Canada could never make up for a major slowdown in these markets, it could at least provide a trickle of new money to help weather the drought.

The price is right
The Statement also provides something of a snapshot of the Canadian architectural glass market right now. The Tribunal notes that the industry is mainly driven by activity in Toronto and Vancouver, with individual large projects accounting for two to three per cent, or more, of the entire market in a given year. The bidding process is described as “informal,” with only a few bidders invited to take part. Lag times between proposals and delivery are pegged at around 12 to 18 months. The Tribunal says domestic producers fill most of the demand, bidding on around 10 to 12 projects a year with a success rate of about 30 per cent.

The continuing primacy of domestic suppliers, even in the face of possibly lower-cost offshore options, is related mainly to the risks project owners assume when they go outside the country for their curtainwall. The Tribunal lists the risks: inferior quality, unsafe products, untimely delivery and installation, differences in business culture, a lack of relationships with foreign suppliers and logistical challenges with shipping. Interestingly, it is the project owners who are more comfortable accepting these risks in order to get lower prices – general contractors and construction managers resist more frequently.

The Statement describes some risk-mitigation strategies. Ordering product for delivery well ahead of time is one, giving contractors time to identify quality problems and go back to the fabricator for solutions. Embedding consultants to oversee quality in overseas factories and on job sites is another.

{gallery}5013{/gallery}

The economic picture for the Canadian market was of demand exceeding supply, with three per cent decreases in demand in 2016 and 2017, but a 22 per cent increase overall since the tariffs were first put in place in 2014. Robert Quattrociocchi of EllisDon described it as a “supplier’s market,” and the contractors generally agreed that the big markets are still “hot.” Despite worries that Vancouver and Toronto have to slow down some time, the Tribunal predicted “stable” demand in the Canadian market in the near and medium term. The IMF predicts the Canadian economy will grow by 1.9 per cent in 2019 and 2020. The Tribunal found an overall increase in Canada’s total production volumes and exports to the U.S. almost doubling from 2015 to 2017. Those happy numbers were mitigated by a recent slowdown in exports, a shortening of backlog for 2020 and 2021 and concerns about low-priced competition in the U.S. Canadian plants are presently over 40 per cent under capacity, but this is not seen as a big problem in an industry that tends to go quickly from quiet shop floors to completely overloaded ones. All this has led to modestly higher margins on sales.

The Tribunal’s assessment of the effects of price on demand for curtainwall in Canada were worth a chuckle. The results of the fabricator survey indicated that the lowest-priced products usually win contracts. Quattrociocchi advanced his opinion that “price is not the only factor...with other important considerations being logistics, delay, quality and warranty.” Bryan Tucker of Westbank mentioned the importance of a relationship with the supplier.

The glass contractors present do not seem to have been disposed to accept these pious sentiments at face value. The Statement says, “A number of domestic producers stated that, in their view, price is often the deciding factor.” Ryan Spurgeon of Antamex called it “everything,” especially once bid-levelling was taken into account. Brian Cohen of BVGlazing chimed in to the same effect. One hopes there were no sharp objects handy. Quattrociocchi did end up admitting that developers are price-conscious and that, after bid-levelling, the lowest-price bid usually won.

Having established that price is king when it comes to bidding on unitized curtainwall projects, the Tribunal turned to looking at what the Chinese suppliers had done and were likely to do were tariffs removed. In the first investigation that led the imposition of tariffs, the Tribunal found “significant” price undercutting by Chinese manufacturers: 38 to 49 per cent for curtainwall and 16 to 28 per cent for window wall. On individual projects, the undercutting ranged from two to 71 per cent. It would take a whole lot of “relationship” to overcome that kind of discrepency. David Hudock of PCL said a 25 per cent price differential would be enough to trigger his company to look into using an overseas supplier, provided the risks could be mitigated.

What have we learned?
At the end of the day the Tribunal, unsurprisingly, found that Chinese unitized curtainwall exporters were likely to resume price undercutting if the tariffs were removed and Canadian curtainwall manufacturers were likely to suffer damage as a result. Shipping sufficient cut-rate curtainwall to Canada is just too easy for the massive Chinese producers and the Canadian market, while doing OK, is sufficiently price-sensitive that we would swiftly be reduced to an unsustainable sliver of market share.

Lobbying for tariffs rubs most glass people the wrong way. After all, aren’t we in business to compete and win? But there are two points here that make supporting tariffs against this part of Chinese industry not incompatible with a free trade stance. The first was contained in the original 2013 decision against China and the imposition of tariffs. That Statement of Reasons outlined a massive web of government subsidies supporting Chinese curtainwall producers. Back then, the Tribunal counted 30 Chinese government programs providing direct subsidies to their manufacturers and another 142 programs capable of providing indirect “upstream” aid. So Canadian glass companies aren’t just competing against their overseas counterparts – they are struggling against the unfathomable might of the Chinese government itself.

The second point is that we should perhaps be unwilling to pursue the path that has led China to its manufacturing dominance in the world. There’s little question that Chinese workers don’t enjoy the pay or protections that we do. The law in China is pretty much whatever Party officials say it is from day to day. Banks are told to give loans to favoured companies on whatever terms necessary. If tariffs are the price of being able to have a glazing industry on our terms, then perhaps they are justified by more than a straight economics calculation.

So we will be protected from the full force of competition with Chinese curtainwall for another five years. But whither our industry after that? Any number of shifts in politics and economics could see the tariffs not renewed next time. Rather than depend on the shield of the Canadian International Trade Tribunal, Canadian curtainwall manufacturers must continuously invest in innovation to improve our products and seek growth and market diversification around the world.

Catching Up with HDC

 Cache   
Last Tuesday, the board of the Hudson Development Corporation held its regular monthly meeting, and a few things happened at that meeting that merit reporting.

First, the cash poor HDC is soon to have a new source of income. The agency is poised to enter into a lease with Redburn Development to rent a portion of the concrete slab behind The Wick Hotel--what remains of the part of the Kaz warehouse building that was demolished, at Redburn's expense, late in 2017. 

According to the terms of the proposed lease, Redburn will pay HDC $2,000 a month to rent a space that will provide thirty parking spots for the hotel. This income will allow HDC to make the payments due to CEDC (Columbia Economic Development Corporation) on the $200,000 loan that enabled HDC to purchase the CSX parcel. Those payments now amount to $10,000 a year.

In another revenue producing initiative, HDC has discovered that, in addition to the Kaz property, it owns a vacant lot on Mill Street (228 Mill Street), 3.3 landlocked acres on the river side of Mt. Merino, a parcel at the foot of Dock Street that abuts the Hudson Dog Park and the Furgary Boat Club, and two parcels that are underwater in the Hudson River. The greatest attention at the meeting was given to the lot on Mill Street, and it was decided that the lot should be surveyed to determine if it is saleable. 

The board also discussed vacancies on the board. There are currently three, after the resignations of Mark Morgan-Perez, Walter Chatham, and Gregg Carey. Board president Bob Rasner suggested that former board member Chris Jones serve on the nominating committee along with board members Carolyn Lawrence and Nick Haddad.

On a topic related to board membership, Rasner reminded the board that there was a motion on the table to add the majority and minority leaders of the Common Council as ex officio members of the HDC board. That motion had been made by Council president Tom DePietro at the board's October meeting. Currently, the mayor and the Common Council president are the only ex officio members of the HDC board. Once upon a time, the majority and minority leaders did serve on the HDC board, but at the end of 2015, the board amended its bylaws to limit the number of elected officials on the board to two--the mayor and the Council president. At the time, there were nine members of the board and four of them--almost half--were elected officials. The change was made to allow a greater number of community members to serve on the board, but some at the time believed it was an attempt to remove "any voices from the minority communities." In 2015, Tiffany Garriga was the majority leader and Bart Delaney was the minority leader.

At the end of the meeting, Rasner spoke about the goals of the agency when he became chair of the HDC board earlier this year: rebuilding the board and the CSX acquisition. He noted that the goals had been achieved and asked rhetorically: "Now what do we do?" He went on to opine that, to the question of what to do with the Kaz property, "there were no wrong answers" and suggested, as he has before, that HDC might just sell it to a developer because they were not developers. He then asked, again rhetorically, "Does development of this property even fall within our mission?" He offered the opinion, "It doesn't appear that it does."

Because the next regularly scheduled HDC meeting falls on Christmas Eve, it was agreed that the board's December meeting would take place on Friday, December 20, at noon. Amendments to the bylaws, including once again making the majority and minority leaders of the Common Council ex officio members of the board, will be taken up at that meeting.

Memories of Winter Walk: Part 2

 Cache   
With the 23rd annual Winter Walk just a week away, our memories of Winter Walks past continue, with another recollection of the very first Winter Walk. Today, Gossips shares the Winter Walk memory of Byrne Fone. Best known to Gossips readers as the author of Historic Hudson: An Architectural Portrait, Byrne was one of the original members of the Hudson Opera House Board of Directors, which began the tradition of Winter Walk back in 1997.

Image: study.com
On a crisp December Saturday night, now many years ago, I tricked myself out in vaguely 19th-century garb: high stovepipe hat, tailcoat, flowing scarf, cape, and cane--all found in my partner Alain Pioton's antiques shop, the Hudson Antiques Center [536 Warren Street], which he had opened in 1985. That night, unusually for a Hudson winter's eve, Warren was filled with folk, some of them also in costume, all wandering from one end of the street to the other, ogling the rich glitter of decorated shop windows and tempted to enter by savory delicacies too inciting to refuse. Musicians played in many shops and walked musically along the street, crowds, Pied Piper-like following, joining in the song.
In my invented role of 19th-century street vivant, I passed among the merry crowd, chatting with friends and strangers. My message: "Here I am, a ghost of Christmas past, come to tell you that this new night on the town is the invention of Hudson's oldest treasure, brought to life again: the Hudson Opera House."
It was the first Winter Walk. It was 1997.
In that year, the Board of Directors, who had overseen the restoration of the decrepit building since acquiring it in 1992, had been casting about for a citywide event to celebrate the season and highlight the ongoing revival of one of Hudson's grandest buildings, which was as well one of America's oldest surviving theaters, built in 1855. Taking a cue from history, we called it then the Hudson Opera House, for 19th-century Hudson had called it that. And who could doubt that it was--and is--operatic, even if, between the date of its construction and that street walk in 1997, only one opera had ever been performed there.
Though no divas regularly commanded the stage nor tenors thrilled the audience with golden tones, the Hudson Opera House had offered a variety of identities. It was built as Hudson's City Hall, but it also housed the police station, the Franklin Library, and the First National Bank of Hudson. Its huge auditorium saw lectures, musical and theatrical events, cotillions and graduations, and even, it has been claimed, poultry shows. Eventually, the poultry were replaced by the Moose. It was their fraternal lodge.
But then the building was abandoned and sold to an "out-of-town developer"--a phrase that darkly suggested demolition, a fate that it began to seem might indeed become a reality. But that fate was not to be.
After years of standing empty, the building was acquired by a group of Hudsonians, all optimistic and amateur enough not to realize the true scale of what we had begun. By 1992, as a non-profit corporation, we had ownership of the building. Our grand plan was to restore it and open it again, for Hudson, as the Hudson Opera House.
Despite the passion of the board, it could not be denied that during those years the project was ignored by many, viewed dubiously by some, and scoffed at by others. To some, it seemed a pointless folly, a cause already lost, a project agonizingly slow and costly. For many, there was a whiff of elitism about it. An opera house? In Hudson?! In what way could it ever have a connection with "real" Hudson life?
We saw what was needed was a way to link the project of the Hudson Opera House--immediately and publicly--with the increasingly vibrant city life that had been sparked by the arrival of antiques dealers in the 1980s and bolstered by new residents who had heard about the excitement. We knew that the Hudson Opera House had to take to the streets. At a board meeting, Carole Clark, owner of the always fondly remembered Charleston restaurant, produced a masterstroke: the appealing and alliterative suggestion for a street event. She called it a Winter Walk on Warren. And thus it came about.
I returned to Alain's shop from my perambulation in the crowded and festive street. Just as in the other shops, waves of visitors were flowing in, sampling mulled wine, munching sweet savories, and looking with pleasure, curiosity, or sometimes mystification at what we had to sell. Ensconcing myself in the window in a rather grand thronelike chair, still Micawberesque in top hat and cape, my voice carried to the street by a microphone cunningly hidden, I read from A Christmas Carol to the crowds bemused by this talking apparition from another age.
"He had never dreamed that any walk could give him so much happiness."
--Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
