          Speciality & Fine Food Asia and Restaurant, Pub & Bar Asia Return With a Focus on Innovation – Propelled by Exciting Industry Partnerships      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Wazzup Pilipinas!
Expect smart solutions, cutting-edge products and revolutionary concepts during the upcoming edition of Speciality & Fine Food Asia (SFFA) and Restaurant, Pub & Bar Asia (RPB Asia). Both trade shows return for their second year from 17 – 19 July 2018 at Suntec Singapore and are bringing together major F&B, foodservice, hospitality and retail players to discuss the issues facing the industry, how innovation plays a part in ensuring sustainability, and future trends that will impact the way we eat, dine, and live.  

Investor Pitching Series
SFFA has launched a brand-new Investor Pitching Series to provide a practical springboard for companies with exciting, innovative ideas to pitch their concepts and products to a panel of judges comprising F&B owners, retailers, hoteliers and investors, for real-time feedback. The Series is split into two tracks – Innovative F&B Products and Productive Business Solutions for the F&B Industry, the latter designed in collaboration with RAS in order to solicit business and product proposals that will address real-life challenges faced by the F&B industry and enable them to harness new technologies, processes or products to elevate their businesses above the global competition, differentiate their offerings and thrive in the long term. Over 10 finalists will be invited for a boot camp where they can exchange ideas and gain tips from industry experts before delivering their pitches to the judges on 17 & 18 July at SFFA.


e2i’s new ULeap F&B mobile modules
SFFA 2018 will also see the launch of e2i’s new F&B mobile modules on ULeap, a mobile learning app, for quick, bite-sized learning on the F&B industry. “To ensure the growth of Singapore’s F&B industry, e2i is pleased to work closely with SFFA and RPB Asia to provide a dedicated platform for industry players to learn from each other, identify new ways of doing things and create opportunities for working partnerships,” said Mr Gilbert Tan, CEO of e2i.

“In addition, e2i will be launching bite-sized learning modules on our ULeap mobile app dedicated to the F&B sector to facilitate greater learning. We also look forward to forming partnerships with the industry players here today as well to raise their training capabilities via skills upgrading access and opportunities for their workers.”




Fine Food Live
A core component of SFFA, Fine Food Live is the mainstage where chef demos, panel discussions, and more will take place. Chef Isaac Mchale of Michelin-starred The Clove Club – also the highest ranked UK restaurant on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants – will be headlining the show for his first official visit to Singapore. Underscoring the show’s focus on sustainability, Mchale champions the very best of British produce, crafting elegant dishes incorporating inspiration from across the globe. Mchale will present two cooking demos and take part in a panel discussion ‘The Fine Art of (Conscious) Dining’.

Joining Mchale on the panel are local and regional experts such as Chef Julien Royer of two Michelin-starred Odette, also Singapore’s highest ranked restaurant on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants; Ken Loon, Chef-Owner of sustainable seafood restaurant, The Naked Finn; international food journalist Cheryl Tiu and Lennard Yeong – both of whom are World’s 50 Best TasteHunters (digital ambassadors for the 50 Best brand). They will explore the definition of conscious dining and how that fits into the fine dining space.

There will be a total of four panel discussions, thoughtfully designed for solutions-driven discourse among prominent industry thought leaders. Other topics are ‘Global F&B Outlook’, ‘Going Digital’ and ‘From Farm to Kitchen’, that will see representatives from ChopeDHL, EdelmanErnst & YoungGrabFoodKPMGZenith Global and more take the stage.

Always a star attraction are the chef demonstrations that will happen throughout the day. This year, presenting chefs include renowned cookbook author, Christopher TanJavad Ahamad from Punjab Grill, and Alexander McKinstry from Viceroy Bali. Chef Neo Jun Hao, the newly-minted winner for Singapore’s Disciples Escoffier Young Talent – the culinary competition for young chefs under the age of 25 – will be conducting his live practice run at the Show before representing the country at the Asia Finals in Hong Kong this September.

Centre Stage
At RPB Asia, Centre Stage will be a flurry of activity as the Show hosts two prestigious industry awards – the inaugural Asia Food Innovation Awards organised by FoodBev Media and theBartender Invitational 2018 organised by The Bar Awards. Both celebrate and recognise excellence and creativity across all aspects of the global food and beverage industry and are testament to the shows’ position and standing as one of the industry’s premier, must-visit events for trade buyers from retail, foodservice, travel, import, wholesale and distribution across Southeast Asia.



  
The Asia Food Innovation Awards is the Asian edition of the UK-based Innovation Awards, which have been running for more than 10 years and are recognised as the most credible and respected awards schemes to influence the international food and beverage industry. For the first time, the inaugural Asia Food Innovation Awards was launched in March 2018, with the winners to be unveiled at Centre Stage on 18 July.

Szellemi életünk fejlődéstörténetében, a XIX. és XX. század határmesgyéjén, messze kimagaslik Karl Lamprecht hatalmas teuton-alakja. Nemcsak alapos, céhbeli történettudós, hangyaszorgalmú kutató, jeles tanár. Elméjének elemző és összetévő erejével, erős meggyőződéseivel, új utakon, új szempontokból való dolgozásmódja révén jelentős alkotó és íróművészi munkát is végzett, amely lassan utat tör hazája és a szaktudományi korlátain túli is a művelt világ olvasóközönségéhez. A Macaulay, Taine, Burckhardt és Ferrero típusához tartozik, bár ezek népszerűségével még nem vetekedhetik, talán azért, mert súlyosabb, vitát kihívó tételekkel terhesebb, így nehezebb, talán nehézkesebb egyéniség is azoknál.

It seems to be looking for QtCore somewhere in /usr/local for some reason, instead of inside Tiled.app.

Alright, no problem. I will just copy those libraries and put them in that path. I copied all the Frameworks and put them in /usr/local/opt/qt/lib.

Now this is what it says:

This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "cocoa"

Available platform plugins are: cocoa.

Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

So this is rather unnerving. Sure, it found the libraries, but THEN it also found the ones inside Tiled.app which it couldn’t find before. And now they are colliding.

Googling a bit mentioned something about using install_name_tool to redirect the libraries in /usr/local to the ones in Tiled.app, but either it doesn’t work or I’m just too inexperienced with these matters.

Can someone help me with this?

          Kenyataan media PDRM tak selari fakta, kata polis Macau      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
MALAYSIAKINI

   
Polis Macau mempertikai kenyataan media oleh polis Malaysia berhubung permintaannya untuk mendapat bantuan bagi menangkap ahli perniagaan yang dikaitkan dengan  skandal 1MDB, Low Taek Jho.

Dalam kenyataan dikeluarkan kepada wartawan tempatan yang diterima Malaysiakini, Jabatan Polis Persekutuan Macau berkata ia kesal apabila polis Malaysia menyebarkan "berita mengenai Macau yang tidak sejajar dengan fakta,".

Bagaimanapun, pihak berkuasa itu tidak mengulas lanjut.

"Interpol China cawangan Macau telah menerima permintaan dari negara yang berkenaan dan telah memberikan jawapan.

"Bagaimanapun, individu bertanggungjawab atas pernyataan media baru-baru ini oleh pasukan polis negara yang berkaitan tentang berita mengenai Macau adalah tidak sejajar dengan fakta.

"Pasukan polis sangat kesal mengenai perkara ini. Mengikut peruntukan undang-undang, polis Macau tidak secara terbuka mendedahkan maklumat masuk dan keluar individu," kata kenyataan itu.

Malaysiakini telah menghubungi polis Macau untuk menjelaskan lebih lanjut mengenai maklumat khusus yang didapati tidak tepat itu.

Terdahulu hari ini, polis Macau mengesahkan menerima permintaan daripada pihak berkuasa Malaysia untuk menangkap Low.

Dalam satu sidang akhbar pagi ini, Ketua Polis Negara Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun mengumumkan Bukit Aman telah membuat permintaan rasmi kepada polis Macau untuk membantu menangkap Jho Low bagi membantu siasatan terhadap 1MDB.









Fuzi berkata minggu lalu bahawa Low melarikan diri ke Macau selepas polis Malaysia tiba untuk mencarinya di Hong Kong.


Baca: Elak polis di Hong Kong, Jho Low lari ke Macau


Low yang sering disebut sebagai Jho Low merupakan individu utama dalam skandal 1MDB.
Jabatan Keadilan Amerika Syarikat (DOJ) mendakwa dalam saman sivilnya bahawa ahli perniagaan itu terlibat dalam penyelewengan dana 1MDB.

Dia dituduh menggunakan dana itu untuk membeli kapal persiaran mewah, The Equanimity; barang kemas untuk model Miranda Kerr; dan juga kalung berlian merah jambu berharga AS$ 27.3 juta untuk isteri Malaysian Offcial 1 (MO1).

DOJ mendakwa berlian merah jambu itu dibeli menggunakan AS$ 620 juta yang didakwa MO1 telah dikembalikan kepada penderma keluarga diraja Arab, tetapi sebaliknya disalurkan ke akaun yang didakwa dikawal oleh Low.

MO1 dikenal pasti sebagai bekas perdana menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak.


          Private and secure multiparty histograms      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Please pick a number between 1 and 10, and don’t tell anybody what you picked.

Got it? Great.

Now, I know you chose a number with deep personal meaning to you. Maybe the number you chose could cause you some trouble if other people knew it? If it helps you get into the spirit of this exercise, you can pretend your number represents your salary or the number of hours you sleep per day or the number of showers you take per week.

At this point, everyone reading this post has picked a number, and none of you want to share it. You especially don’t want to give it to Facebook or Cambridge Analytica or any of these big companies that make their money by selling what they know about you.

But you’re probably curious. How many other people picked the same number? How popular were the numbers you didn’t pick? (So long as you can keep your privacy, there are lots of good reasons to contribute to aggregate research, such as medical studies.)

We’ll answer those questions with a histogram. But I’ll walk you through techniques that ensure that you don’t have to reveal your secret number to anyone in the process of computing the histogram, and furthermore that someone who learns the information in the histogram still can’t find out what your secret number was.

There will be nothing new here for experts in differential privacy or secure multiparty computation; instead I’m aiming for a tutorial for programmers who aren’t familiar with these fields. Also, don’t rely on my explanations to implement anything where you really care about security. (This falls under the general advice, “don’t roll your own crypto.”) Rather I just want to spread awareness of several decades of research that are very relevant to us today.

What is “privacy”, really?

You might expect that a histogram is pretty good for keeping individual numbers secret. If a hundred people are counted in the same histogram, how could I prove which bin you’re in?

However: there’s a long history of people publishing data that seemed like it shouldn’t breach anyone’s privacy, only for someone to discover that in conjunction with other information, it wasn’t nearly as private as it seemed. An extreme case here would be if I know the secret number of everyone except you: I can then tell which bin you’re in by elimination. By the same token, if you and I are the only participants in this project, then I can subtract my contribution from the histogram and yours will be all that’s left. Privacy compromises can get much more complicated than either of these two cases, of course.

One well-known example was when Netflix published anonymized movie rental histories for their Netflix Prize competition in 2006. By 2007, researchers had demonstrated how to correlate the anonymized Netflix ratings with public movie ratings from IMDb, successfully re-identifying private movie rating records in the Netflix dataset, with implications for the privacy of people’s sexuality and their political and religious views1.

If you want to know whether a piece of information is going to deprive someone of their privacy, the lesson here is you can’t just reason about what an adversary can learn from the information you’re publishing. You have to consider everything they could possibly have known already.

So now we’ve gone from “this seems fine” to “this seems impossible!”

It turns out however that there are general techniques which can provably preserve privacy! The field is called “differential privacy”. Research in this area kicked off with Dwork, McSherry, Nissim, and Smith publishing “Calibrating Noise to Sensitivity in Private Data Analysis” in 2006, although that paper did not yet use the “differential privacy” terminology.

Differential privacy promises that the data generated from a dataset won’t be significantly different whether your data is in that dataset or not, so you might as well participate. Because a dataset that includes you is essentially indistinguishable from one you aren’t in, it doesn’t matter what the adversary knows!

There is a trade-off though between privacy and utility. Because the definition of differential privacy assumes the adversary could already know anything and everything, differentially private results must always have random noise added to them to obscure individual contributions to the results. Papers in this area are largely about deciding exactly how little noise you can get away with adding, because the more noise there is, the less useful the result is.

An alternative definition called “Distributional Differential Privacy” (DDP), introduced in Bassily, Groce, Katz, Smith: “Coupled-Worlds Privacy: Exploiting Adversarial Uncertainty in Statistical Data Privacy”, relaxes the assumption about an adversary’s abilities. Instead of assuming they could know everything, we define our assumptions about exactly what the adversary could know in terms of probability distributions. This requires some caution because if we omit the distribution that turns out to reflect some adversary’s actual knowledge, then all our privacy claims are invalid. But as long as we’re careful we can get more useful results by recognizing that real adversaries are not actually all-powerful.

One algorithm given in the original DDP papers is for privacy-preserving histograms, which is exactly what we need here2!

Privacy-preserving histograms

For now, let’s assume you believe I’m a trustworthy person, so you’re willing to give me your secret number and I’ll promise not to reveal it to anyone else. (We’ll improve on this assumption later.)

Once everyone has handed me their secret numbers, I can take the following steps:

  1. I’ll pick a probability p and a whole number k based on how many people are participating and on how much privacy loss I’m willing to accept.

  2. For each participant, I decide at random whether to use their number at all. Every participant needs to have the same probability, p, of being included. It’s very important that nobody be able to predict these decisions.

  3. Count how many of the selected participants fall in each bin.

  4. If any bin has a count less than k, report that bin as 0 instead.

Section 6.2 of Adam Groce’s PhD thesis, “New Notions and Mechanisms for Statistical Privacy”, contains the proof of the following statement, given that I follow the above procedure:

An adversary cannot learn about an individual, even if the attacker knows that the individual was in the sample. Consequently, the adversary cannot determine if a given individual was in the sample to begin with.

This should be a fairly comforting result. Sadly there are several details in the proof I haven’t been able to follow, so I have to take Groce’s word for it.

I’ll also refer you to the thesis for alternate choices of sampling distributions, as well as how to pick p and k.

Secure multiparty computation

What if you don’t trust me with your secret number? (I’m hurt, but I’ll get over it.)

“Secure Multi-Party Computation” (often abbreviated “MPC”) is a sub-field of cryptography where people who have secrets they aren’t willing to share with each other can nonetheless work together to compute some function combining all those secrets.

In this case we’re going to use MPC techniques so you don’t have to reveal your secret number to anyone. Instead of relying on me to combine everyone’s secrets, you’ll work directly with the other participants to run the above algorithm, and they won’t learn your secret number either.

Researchers have proposed a variety of MPC techniques that are remarkably generic: they can compute anything that could be computed by an arbitrary combination of either boolean logic gates or addition and multiplication. It turns out you can express those in terms of each other, but some algorithms are simpler in boolean logic and others are simpler in arithmetic.

The above histogram algorithm can be expressed fairly clearly in either style, but I think I can better explain a boolean circuit solution than the alternatives based on number theory, so let’s focus on that.

Using boolean circuits

The boolean-circuit style of MPC originates in a 1987 paper called “How to Solve any Multi-Party Protocol Problem” (by Goldreich, Micali, and Wigderson). That paper focused on presenting a constructive proof that all polytime-computable functions can be computed privately. Which is super cool, but they didn’t address questions of efficiency, or a variety of other implementation details one might care about.

Instead let’s look at a paper that follows the above construction but makes specific implementation choices and evaluates performance on a real implementation. Choi et al published “Secure Multi-Party Computation of Boolean Circuits with Applications to Privacy in On-Line Marketplaces” in 2012. As a non-expert in this field, I found their paper relatively easy to follow, which is somewhat unusual in cryptography papers! The paper provides a nice overview together with plenty of citations to papers describing the fundamental building blocks. The authors also published the source code of their implementation, if you want something to play with, although I haven’t tested whether it still builds.

In this framework, every computation is expressed as a circuit composed of AND gates and XOR gates3. If you’re used to writing software, at first glance this feels super limiting. Where are the loops and if-statements and function calls? How do I do math or manipulate text or construct fancy data structures?

Hardware designers, on the other hand, deal with this all the time.

  • Function calls are replaced by just copying another instance of the circuit everywhere it’s needed.
  • There are tons of known boolean circuits for doing arithmetic.
  • If-statements involve computing the result of the conditional expression “c” as well as both the true and false branch results “t” and “f”, then computing “(c AND t) OR (NOT c AND f)”.

And so on. A task that takes just a few lines of code in your favorite programming language might blow up into a giant circuit, but still, many more things are possible than one might expect.

Once you’ve described your program as a boolean circuit, I encourage you to read either of the papers I cited above to learn how to turn that into a secure computation4. But I’ll note a couple of important details now:

  1. In this system, every participant splits up their secret inputs into random parts, and assigns one part to each of the other participants. The “real” value is the XOR of all the parts together, but since each participant sees only one of the random parts, nobody can draw any conclusions about what the actual value is.
  2. Because of the way the parts are distributed, each participant can compute their part of the result of an XOR by simply doing an XOR of their share of the inputs. So XOR operations are super easy.
  3. However, AND operations require pairwise communications between all participants, as well as cryptographic operations, so they’re relatively expensive.
  4. At the end of the computation, all the participants’ parts can be combined to get the final answer.

As a warm-up, let’s devise three kinds of circuits, which we’ll then rearrange and combine in various ways to solve the histogram problem.

Addition circuits

The first circuit we need adds two 1-bit numbers and a 1-bit carry input, producing their 1-bit sum and a 1-bit carry output. Hardware designers call this circuit a full adder, and if Wikipedia doesn’t satisfy your curiosity you should be able to find plenty of details in any introductory digital circuits textbook. I learned about them from a children’s book, personally, but I may have had a strange childhood5.

A full adder needs 3 XOR gates and 2 AND gates6. Remember, in this style of multi-party computation, XOR is fast while AND is slow.

To add numbers that are N bits wide, the simplest option is to chain together N copies of the full adder circuit. Connect the carry-output for the least-significant bit to the carry-input of the next bit, to form what’s called a ripple-carry adder. This means we need 3·N XOR gates and 2·N AND gates.

This is a complete boolean circuit in its own right, and at this point we could use Choi et al’s implementation of multi-party computation to securely find the sum of any number of secret inputs.

Comparison circuits

The next circuit we’ll build compares two N-bit numbers A and B, producing a 1-bit output that is 1 if A<B and 0 otherwise.

We could modify a full adder to perform subtraction instead, but a specialized digital comparator is easier to think through.

  • If the most-significant bit of A and B are 0 and 1, respectively, then A is less than B.
  • If they’re equal (both 0 or both 1) then we should compare the next most significant bit of each.
  • Otherwise, or if all the bits are equal, A is not less than B.

This needs 4 XOR gates and 2 AND gates per bit.

At this point we can solve variants of Yao’s Millionaires’ Problem, a thought experiment in cryptography where two people want to determine which of them has more money without actually revealing how much they have to each other.

However, every time we’re going to use this comparison circuit in the final histogram circuit, it turns out that either A or B is a public constant, so some of the inputs to these gates are known in advance. That allows us to simplify the circuit to 1 AND gate, and between 0 and 2 XOR gates, per bit7.

Random number circuits

The third basic circuit we need is a little different, because it doesn’t correspond to any physical digital logic circuit. Instead, this one relies on a specific property of Choi et al’s approach to multi-party computation.

Recall that Groce’s private histogram algorithm requires us to decide at random whether to include any given person’s private data in the final output, in such a way that the adversary can’t predict our decision.

So to start with, let’s figure out how to generate a single random bit, equally likely to be a 1 or a 0. None of the participants are allowed to know the value of this bit, but everyone needs to be able to use it in further computation.

Remember that in Choi et al’s approach, a participant’s secret input bit is represented by giving every participant a random bit, constrained such that the XOR of all those bits produces the true value.

So to generate a secret random bit, instead of distributing shares of somebody’s secret input, each participant should just generate their own random bit, and together all those bits will represent a truly random bit8.

We can extend this to generate a random bit that is 1 with probability p. If we concatenate N uniform random bits, we’ll get a uniform random N-bit number. With probability p, that number will be less than p times 2^N, so we can use our earlier less-than circuit to get the desired output.

We just have to pick a large enough N that it can represent p in fixed point with enough precision. To put that another way, p needs to be close to an integer multiple of 1/2^N. On the other hand, since the comparison circuit uses N AND gates and those are expensive, it’s worth picking the smallest possible value of N that lets us represent p precisely enough for our needs.

Histogram circuits!

With that background in mind, let’s sketch a circuit for privacy-preserving histograms!

First we have to think about how each participant’s input should be encoded. I can think of two reasonable ways to represent your input: either as the binary encoding of your chosen secret number; or as one bit per histogram bin, where exactly one of the bits is 1. Using one bit per bin simplifies the circuit a little, but means you have to take extra steps to ensure that nobody sneakily puts themselves in multiple bins. And you can do that with “zero-knowledge proofs”, but it’s probably better to use an encoding with no redundancy or illegal states in it.

  1. In advance, everyone agrees on a probability p, a whole number k, and the shape of the circuit we’re about to evaluate. These are public parameters to the algorithm. If you believe the parameters aren’t good enough to protect your privacy, you can refuse to participate without revealing anything about your secret number.

  2. If everyone’s secret number is encoded in binary, then we need to convert to a bit-per-bin representation. Electrical engineers have lots of designs for converting between binary and so-called “one-hot” encoding, but for simplicity just assume we’ll use the less-than circuit a bunch of times.

    Next you all need to decide whose inputs are actually going to get included in this histogram. For each participant, generate a random bit that is 1 with probability p. Then AND that bit with each bin of that participant’s input.

    The level of paranoia in our random number circuit may have seemed excessive. But to make the correctness proof hold, we’re relying on the fact that none of the participants ever learn what any of the random numbers actually were, and also that none of them can influence whether somebody gets counted or not, so long as even one participant is honest.

  3. Use a bunch of full-adder circuits to add up the number of 1-bits in each bin.

  4. For each bin, use the less-than circuit to check if k-1 is less than the count in that bin; the result will be 1 if the count is big enough and 0 otherwise. The final result for that bin is the AND of this bit with each of the bits of the count.

Ta-da! Using distributional differential privacy, we saw how to make sure that the histogram output doesn’t reveal more than we intended to. Now we’ve seen how to ensure that the inputs are never revealed to anybody either.

Histograms using arithmetic

Many functions are inconvenient to express as boolean circuits. I mean, you can do it, but the circuits get huge. So I’d like to give a brief sense of what this would look like in an arithmetic setting instead.

Instead of taking AND and XOR as our basic operations, we can choose multiplication and addition over integers. However, like machine arithmetic on CPUs, these operations wrap if the result is bigger than some implementation-specified constant.

Some parts of the histogram algorithm are a lot simpler in this setting. Adding up the count of participants in each bin takes one addition per participant, instead of 2 AND gates per bit per participant. Even better, addition is the cheap operation while multiplication is expensive, so that stage becomes basically free.

Other parts are more complicated, because in general you can’t turn addition and multiplication into “return 1 if A<B and 0 otherwise”. Fortunately in this setting we aren’t actually working with arbitrary-precision integers, so there are tricks you can play, such as detecting that a computation overflowed. I’m not going to go into detail here, but there are specific methods for implementing the less-than and random-number circuits we relied on in the previous section. If you’re interested, see “Multiparty Computation for Interval, Equality, and Comparison without Bit-Decomposition Protocol” by Nishide and Ohta for one approach.

Since all the primitives we need exist in this multiparty arithmetic setting, clearly we can implement private histograms this way too! If you’re looking for a challenge, you could go implement this algorithm both ways and find out which one is more efficient, because I honestly don’t know…

Summary

Well, the number you chose has remained your secret this whole time, even as you let people learn some aggregate information about a crowd of people that included you.

Recent news reports about businesses like Cambridge Analytica vacuuming up huge amounts of personal information to create creepy profiles of people have been scary wake-up calls regarding our privacy in the era of big data and algorithms. However, there are many positive uses for data collection, ranging from serious medical studies to helping people discover some entertaining thing they’ll enjoy.

With this post, I hope I’ve conveyed that it’s theoretically possible to get the personal and societal benefits of data collection, without the harms due to our personal data being used in ways we didn’t intend.

I’ve only touched on a few specific examples of research from the past several decades, and there’s a lot of work to be done on making these approaches efficient, scalable, and usable. But the foundations are there, so we should reject the corporate story that we have to give up all our privacy to get these benefits.

Footnotes

  1. Narayanan and Shmatikov. “Robust De-anonymization of Large Sparse Datasets” 

  2. Much of the differential privacy literature uses sums or counts as examples, because those are easy to analyze—and a histogram is just a collection of counts. So finding a histogram algorithm in a paper in this field is not actually very difficult. I’ve chosen to write about this particular algorithm for two reasons. First, it’s pretty straightforward to adapt to the secure multiparty computation setting, but it has some interesting twists that let me discuss a bit more about that setting. Second, I started off trying to solve a different problem, and this algorithm has nice properties for my use case, though I won’t discuss that further right now because I don’t have a proof yet that my modifications to the algorithm are actually safe.

    If you’d like to compare this with an algorithm that was designed from the start to satisfy the original differential privacy definition in a multiparty computation setting, I recommend Bindschaedler et al, “Achieving Differential Privacy in Secure Multiparty Data Aggregation Protocols on Star Networks”. That algorithm is also fault-tolerant against some number of participants going offline partway through. 

  3. The original proposal by Goldreich et al used NOT gates rather than XOR, but if you provide an always-true input, “NOT b” can be rewritten as “1 XOR b”. So Choi et al can compute everything Goldreich et al can, with the same efficiency. 

  4. If you really get into the implementation details of the boolean circuit approach, you may also be interested in papers on “oblivious transfer”, such as Donald Beaver, “Precomputing Oblivious Transfer”, and Li et al, “Efficient reduction of 1 out of n oblivious transfers in random oracle model”

  5. I learned about boolean circuits for addition from David Macaulay’s 1988 children’s book, “The Way Things Work”, which illustrates everything with the help of a herd of friendly woolly mammoths. Honestly I think it’s a fantastic book for curious people of all ages. Apparently there have been two newer editions since the version I read as a child, if you’re concerned about the book’s relevance thirty years later. 

  6. There are several combinations of gates that can work to implement a full adder. Wikipedia shows the two AND gates being combined with an OR gate to produce the carry output. However, one of the AND gates computes A AND B, while the other has an input from A XOR B. Since those can’t both be 1 at the same time, the inputs to the OR gate also can’t both be 1 at the same time, so in this case OR and XOR will produce the same result. 

  7. In a digital comparator where one operand is constant, the total number of XOR gates depends on several factors. If the left-hand side is constant, then the number of XOR gates is twice the number of 0 bits. If the right-hand side is constant, the number of XOR gates is twice the number of 1 bits, plus the number of 0 bits.

    If you wanted to micro-optimize this circuit, you could note that on integers, A<B is equivalent to either NOT (B-1<A) or NOT (B<A+1). That means that if the constant is the left-hand operand you can swap it to the right, or vice versa, for the cost of an additional XOR gate.

    Of course this is not worth doing, because in this system, XOR gates are basically free compared to AND gates. But I spent so much time thinking about this useless micro-optimization that, gosh darn it, I’m at least allowed to put it in a footnote. 

  8. This protocol for generating a random bit struck me as the obvious thing to do, and simultaneously as way too easy for it to possibly be correct. It wasn’t at all obvious to me that the XOR of a bunch of uniform random bits would still be uniform random, or that a malicious participant couldn’t influence the result one way or the other. Fortunately my friend Joe Ranweiler dug up the perfect Mathematics Stack Exchange answer for this question: “How to prove uniform distribution of m⊕k if k is uniformly distributed?” That proof shows that as long as at least one participant generates their bit uniformly at random, it doesn’t matter what anyone else does: the result will still be a uniform random number.

It seems to be looking for QtCore somewhere in /usr/local for some reason, instead of inside Tiled.app.

Alright, no problem. I will just copy those libraries and put them in that path. I copied all the Frameworks and put them in /usr/local/opt/qt/lib.

Now this is what it says:

So this is rather unnerving. Sure, it found the libraries, but THEN it also found the ones inside Tiled.app which it couldn’t find before. And now they are colliding.

Googling a bit mentioned something about using install_name_tool to redirect the libraries in /usr/local to the ones in Tiled.app, but either it doesn’t work or I’m just too inexperienced with these matters.

Can someone help me with this?

Malaysiakini - Dr M, why are you protecting Zakir Naik? (extracts):




Malaysian PM with alleged terrorist, convicted blackmailer, alleged pilferer

Anonymous 2413471460628504: If there is a formal request from India to extradite preacher Zakir Naik, what is the Malaysian government waiting for?

Unless there is no extradition treaty with India, whether Zakir behaves himself or not in Malaysia is immaterial. We wouldn't want this kind of reason from another country in reply to our request for extradition.

It is not our government's job to decide if Zakir has committed a crime in India. It is for India to decide, and if we think India is incompetent to do so, then we should terminate any extradition treaty we have with them.

Otherwise, please comply with our international treaties and obligations.

Gotcha: Malaysia should not set a bad example by failing to deport Zakir back to India as he is wanted by Indian authorities.

Since the Indian Foreign Ministry has confirmed that a formal request has been made to Malaysia for the extradition of Zakir, it is best that we comply.

It is also pointless for Malaysia to allow a person who allegedly promotes terrorism and racial hate to remain in our peace-loving nation.

6th Generation Immigrant: Hang on, Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, that does not sound right. India had requested we extradite Zakir, and we have a mutual agreement to facilitate that.

Malaysia is also seeking to extradite a number of others – 1MDB-linked Jho Low, former police officer and convicted murderer Sirul Azhar Umar, former Sabah chief minister Musa Aman, et cetera.

How would Mahathir feel if Macau, Australia and United Kingdom answered as you just did in a tit-for-tat diplomacy?

Leave religion out of your decision, Mahathir, your answer will not be anything else but a definite return of Zakir to India.

If he is found innocent in India, he can return to Malaysia with his permanent residency. If he is charged, jailed and fined, we should strip him of his permanent resident status. This is the international rule of law.


Ambiga Sreenevasan

in 2013 Ibrahim Ali and Mahathir wanted to have Ambiga's citizenship stripped for being involved with BERSIH, which Mahathir himself subsequently participated in, wakakaka.

Shouldn't he then strip himself of his own citizenship?

It was in early 2013 that the Star Online reported that, in Laws to protect your citizenship (extracts):

Many individuals, including Ibrahim [Ali], ........ and even former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad have called for Ambiga’s citizenship to be revoked, following her involvement with Bersih.

In reaction, Penang Gerakan leader Baljit Singh demanded for Ibrahim’s citizenship to be revoked, saying the Perkasa chief has committed treason in questioning the “King’s decision to grant a royal audience to Ambiga”.

Earlier this year, Dr Mahathir reportedly said the Government needed to amend the constitution if it wanted to strip the citizenship of lawyers such as Ambiga.

But in the NST, we read Dr M on calls for Zakir Naik's extradition: M'sia not giving in easily (extracts):

PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said Malaysia would not give in easily just because there were demands made by others.

Responding to questions on controversial Muslim preacher Dr Zakir Naik and India’s request to have him extradited, Dr Mahathir said the government would always ensure it looked into all factors before responding to any demand.

“We do not easily follow the demands of others. We must look at all factors before we respond.


[kaytee note: Mahathir has been renowned for ignoring international treaties including extradition treaty with India. He has recently decided to unilaterally cancel internationally agreed and signed for projects as well as ignoring an international treaty to allow Ong Boon Hwa (Chin Peng) to return home to Sitiawan]


“Otherwise, someone will become a victim,” he said.

A DAP leader had recently questioned if there was a “secret deal” between the Malaysian and Indian government, after Putrajaya said it would not deport Zakir.

Dr Mahathir last week said the cleric would not be handed over to Indian authorities as he had been granted Malaysian permanent resident status.

The prime minister said Zakir, who left India in 2016, would be allowed to stay in the country as long as he was not creating any problem.

However, the decision did not sit well with several groups, who insisted the government return Zakir to India following his alleged tendencies to make racial and religiously insensitive statements.

It was reported that India had made a formal extradition request for Zakir to be returned to the country after accusing him of inciting youngsters to commit terror activities through his hate speeches.

However, Zakir has accused the media in India of subjecting him to a campaign of vilification over the past two years.

He has also pledged to expose fake news about him soon.

塞爾提克的總管兼總教練Red Auerbach早在夏季籃球營裡就認識了Ramsey,每年夏天在紐約州Catskills Mountains的Kutsher’s Country Club舉辦的籃球夏令營裡,Auerbach是固定出現的教練之一,同時也是營隊的顧問。1950年的暑假,來自肯塔基州的Ramsey白天在俱樂部裡打雜賺錢,晚上則成為參與訓練營的球員之一,這是兩人第一次相遇。 當時同隊的還有Ramsey在肯塔基大學的隊友Cliff Hagan,兩人同樣出身肯塔基州,Ramsey的Madisonville中學在1948年肯塔基州冠軍賽中敗給了Hagan領軍的Owensboro中學,最後兩人不但一起進入肯塔基大學就讀,還與另一位出身麻州的肯塔基大學隊友Lou Tsioropoulous一同在1953年的選秀會被老紅頭所挑選。 「Red是我們在訓練營裡的教練,從那時候起只要我們在Catskills打球,就會看到他的身影。」Ramsey說。   NBA選秀   Catskills讓Red Auerbach認識了這群肯塔基球員,而肯塔基總教練Adolph Rupp也與老紅頭關係密切,由於一項牽扯肯大球員的醜聞,肯塔基大學在1952-53球季被禁止招生,於是Rupp決定安排原本將要在春季順利畢業的Ramsey、Hagan與Tsioropoulous停賽一年,Rupp也將這個打第五季的決定告訴了Auerbach,這讓Auerbach想出了一條計策。 當時NBA規定球隊不能挑選大學學業尚未完成的球員,於是在聯盟的冬季會議裡,Auerbach提出了一項動議:為何不將規定修改為允許挑選高中畢業後滿四年的球員? 「這跟NFL的規定相同,」Auerbach在會議中說。「為什麼不就依照他們的選秀辦法來做?」 由於會議裡沒有人發現這條規則修改的危害,於是很快的,這則修正動議就獲得通過。 「每當有什麼想要進行的計畫,我總是在最後一刻才提出來,」Auerbach事後說。「當時人們已經疲倦,只想要儘快離開會議去吃晚餐。我會一派輕鬆地提出提案,通常不會有太多討論,大家會通過提案並繼續進行會議,這回也是如此。」 幾個月後,在選秀會上Auerbach宣布自己在1953年第一個選擇的新秀是來自肯塔基大學的Frank Ramsey(1953年第五順位)時全場一陣譁然。 「其他人跳了起來說:『你在說甚麼?你不能選他,他要回肯塔基大學打球!』」Auerbach描述著。「我說:『看清楚規則,我們幾個月前才剛通過而已。』」 Auerbach並未就此打住,第三輪裡他挑選了Ramsey的同學Hagan(第21順位),第七輪挑選了Tsioropoulos(第57順位)。   ▲ Hagan、Rupp、Tsioropoulos、Ramsey (Lexington Herald Leader) 當時,Ned Irish(紐約尼克隊總裁)站起來說:「嘿!各位,我們幹了蠢事,Red是對的,規則說他可以這麼幹。」 當然,這是波士頓方的故事觀點,對其他球隊而言,塞爾提克與老紅頭在選秀會上的舉動當然是偷襲、鑽漏洞的行為,是又一次Auerbach的惡行惡狀。 「我當時人就在現場,我們像是執法人員跟流氓對抗一班,」曾經擔任明尼蘇達湖人隊球員人事主任的明尼蘇達論壇報記者Sid Hartman回憶著。「紅頭很快的挑走了Hagan、Ramsey與Tsioropoulous。我參與每一次的會議,每次的會議裡都跟紅頭糾纏,他真是個聰明的渾蛋。那些規則從來沒有改變,但他就是這樣硬幹了!我人就在那裏。他挑選了那些球員,紐約尼克隊的總裁Ned Irish大聲抗議,但聯盟主席Maurice Podoloff還是放行,因為他很喜歡塞爾提克的老闆Walter Brown,而當時Brown已經快要破產。」 那年暑假,Ramsey跟著一群大學明星球員到波士頓紅襪隊的主場參與跟哈林隊的表演賽。在芬威球場的球員休息區裡,Ramsey第一次跟Auerbach展開合約協商。 「職業籃球在當時還不是什麼重要的事情,而且我知道畢業後我將要服役兩年,因此被塞爾提克選上對我並不是這麼大事。」Ramsey說。 Red Auerbach的選擇當然有風險,最鮮明的是這三個球員都將因為返校打球不會在新球季裡替塞爾提克效力,實際上,除了Ramsey外另兩人在第二年也沒有露臉。Hagan因為在韓戰期間跟Ramsey一樣參加了ROTC計畫,因此畢業後立刻服役兩年,只能在安德魯斯空軍基地的籃球隊打球。而在退伍前Hagan的簽約權就被塞爾提克給交易到聖路易老鷹隊交換Bill Russell的選秀權,因此Hagan從來未曾替塞爾提克打過任何一場球,卻幫助塞爾提克在未來十三年裡拿下十一次冠軍。 Tsioropoulos則在1956-57球季向塞爾提克報到,三季裡留下5.8分、4.8籃板與1.1助攻的成績, 「紅頭跟Rupp幾乎一模一樣,」當談到Auerbach與自己的大學恩師時,Ramsey說。「他們都很重視紀律,你得要循規蹈矩,同時也都是大獨裁者。我覺得Auerbach當教練最大的特質在他選擇球員的方式,他擅長挑選有天分的球員並將他們融入一群贏家裡。」 但另一方面,Ramsey也與Auerbach非常投緣。 「Auerbach非常喜歡Ramsey,」當家主控Bob Cousy說。「Ramsey就像是公司的總經理,非常的可靠。他照料球隊裡的每一個人。如果我們在雪城遇到大雪,他會確保每個人的車上都有司機,確保一個人都安全無虞。他就像是老媽一般關照全隊,紅頭很喜歡這點。」   痛恨輸球的肯塔基野貓   1950-54的三個球季裡(1952-53球季Ramsey停賽)裡,Ramsey的肯塔基野貓隊一共只輸了七場比賽,1950-51球季野貓隊寫下32勝3敗的成績最後還贏得了NCAA冠軍,最後一季更是25戰全勝。帶著近乎完美紀錄進入NBA,完全不習慣輸球的Ramsey在NBA的第一個課題,就是輸球。 雖然有Bob Cousy、Bill Sharman、Ed Macauley等明星球員,但生涯的第一戰裡塞爾提克還是以95:98敗給羅徹斯特皇家隊(現在沙加緬度國王隊前身)。賽後,Ramsey坐在自己的位置前,悲傷、抽蓄、泫然欲泣。 「嘿!Rams!」老將Macauley輕聲的對菜鳥說著。「怎麼了?」 「到底哪裡出錯了?」Ramsey抬頭看著Macauley,重複地問著。「我們輸了,這一定有哪裡出錯了。」 冷靜了一會,Ramsey補了一句:「我們在肯塔基從來沒輸過。」 「開心點,菜鳥,」綽號Easy Ed的Macauley只能面帶微笑,開導著小老弟。「我們還有另外七十場比賽要打呢!」 「好吧,」Ramsey回應著。「但這不會讓我少哭一點。」 衍生閱讀:<塞爾提克隨筆> 11/08 前塞爾提克名人堂球星麥考利逝世,享壽83歲  隔天,塞爾提克又以四分在客場敗給了韋恩堡活塞隊(現在底特律活塞隊前身),吞下了Ramsey未曾嘗過的二連敗滋味。 儘管如此,Ramsey的表現還是讓他看起來不像是個菜鳥。前三戰他場場比賽都得分上雙,平均14.0分,生涯前五場比賽最低得分為9分。就在第六戰裡,塞爾提克開拔到紐約麥迪遜花園廣場,Ramsey毫不怯場的在紐約客前拿下僅次於隊友Bill Sharman(32分)的25分,也幫助球隊以117:98大勝死對頭尼克隊。 「這對菜鳥而言真是場不錯的比賽,對吧?」波士頓前鋒報的記者Joe Looney問著尼克隊總教練拉普奇克(Joe Lapchick)。 「Ramsey從來就不是個菜鳥。」拉普奇克如此回應著。 雖然職業生涯相當成功,Russell入隊後的塞爾提克更是運動史上最強大的王者,但Ramsey還是那個很痛恨輸球的Ramsey。 1960年2月7日,當時以44勝12敗在東區遙遙領先的塞爾提克回到波士頓迎戰來訪的紐約尼克隊。前一天塞爾提克靠著Russell、Tommy Heinsohn分別拿下29分、Sharman攻下27分下以143:117在克場大勝了尼克隊,在過去六戰裡拿下五勝,近況正佳。 回到波士頓主場,不僅Russell與Heinsohn分別再攻下27分與22分,老大哥Cousy更以36投18中外帶十罰全中的高水準拿下46分。但另一邊的尼克隊不但主力後衛Richie Guern與前鋒Kenny Sears各自獲得37分,全隊更有5成46的高命中率,讓尼克隊以142:135扳回一城。 賽後,波士頓環球報的Arthur Siegel訪問了一臉怒容的Ramsey有何觀點,慎怒的Ramsey口不擇言的說出要回家打老婆出氣的失言。 1947-48球季(NBA前身BAA成立的第二年)就入行的高後衛Carl Braun在生涯最後一季(1961-62)加盟了塞爾提克,Ramsey痛恨輸球的態度更讓他印象深刻。到了季末,塞爾提克已經領先東區第二位六至八場勝差,總教練Auerbach開始讓主將例如Cousy、Russell的出場時間降低至28分鐘左右,久經江湖的Braun也早已習慣於球隊在球季接近尾聲時開始輕鬆出賽好準備季後賽。但在一場非常鬆散的敗仗後,卻讓他對塞爾提克的贏家文化有更深一層的了解,當然,還有Ramsey。 「我永遠也無法忘記輸球後發生的事情。」Braun回憶著。「Red沒有說太多話,當他離開後休息室裡一片靜默,突然,Ramsey拿起他的一隻球鞋用力的砸向對面牆壁。『你們這些傢伙又再一次拿我的錢開玩笑!』他大聲咆嘯著。『我從肯塔基州上來這裡是要贏球並賺點錢的!如果這種鳥事再發生一次,我保證讓你們吃不完兜著走!』就這樣,沒有任何人多說一句話,不管是Russell、Cousy、Heinsohn或是任何人,這傢伙說得完全正確。」   第一座總冠軍   「就在我新秀球季結束後,Red跟我在芬威球場的休息室裡準備對哈林隊的比賽,當時,我已經準備好要入伍服役。」Ramsey說。「紅頭問我想要的薪水,我也把心裡的數字告訴他。『喔!那是不可能的!』紅頭喊著。我告訴他退伍後我已經有份好工作等著我,於是我們不斷的討價還價,最後Red還是成功地砍掉了500美金,這是我塞爾提克生涯最後一次合約談判。」 結束新秀球季後,Ramsey被徵招入營,不僅錯過了1955-56球季,更直到1956-57球季中才重返球隊,但實際上,Ramsey當時並沒有真的退伍。為了能夠提前出賽,Ramsey累積了60天的假期,並且安排了許多三連休,讓他可以在休假日裡替塞爾提克出賽,就這樣一路幫球隊打到了總冠軍。 「直到我們拿到1956-57球季的總冠軍後兩天,我才正式從陸軍退伍。」Ramsey回憶著。   ▲ 1956-57 塞爾提克的第一支冠軍隊(d21c.com) 這年,是兩個超級新秀Tommy Heinsohn(現任塞爾提克電視球評)與Bill Russell透過選秀加入塞爾提克的球季,也是塞爾提克開啟十三年十一冠旅程的時刻。 雖然1956-57球季帳面成績只從39勝33敗進步至44勝28敗,但塞爾提克這季補入擅長防守的Russell與能得分、能抓籃板、能防守,除了傳球外在場上幾乎無所不能的Heinsohn,再加上服役停賽一季半的Ramsey,戰力可說是大幅躍進。季後賽第一輪三連勝橫掃雪城國民隊(現在的費城七六人隊前身)後,就挺進冠軍賽遭遇聖路易老鷹隊(現在亞特蘭大老鷹隊前身)。 老鷹隊裡除了原本年僅24歲的天王中前鋒Bob Pettit外,陣中主力都與塞爾提克息息相關。大前鋒Ed Macauley不僅是塞爾提克原本的當家球星,他與Ramsey的大學隊友Hagan正是季前塞爾提克向老鷹隊換來第二順位挑選Russell的籌碼,而另一位長人Chuck Share則是塞爾提克隊史上唯一一位選秀狀元(1950年),Auerbach在那年的選秀會上跳過了Cousy選擇了Share。 衍生閱讀:<選秀的故事> Bob Cousy (十之一)第一個狀元籤  開幕戰裡,雙方就展開激戰,第一節取得十分領先的老鷹隊在第二節就讓出領先優勢,打完48分鐘雙方打成平手,最後靠著Pettit拿下37分下在二度延長後以125:123打破了塞爾提克主場,讓主場優勢瞬間化為烏有。但這系列激烈的程度也讓雙方在前六場比賽裡只有一場勝負分超過十分,更有三場比賽以兩分決勝負,只有一球之差。 第五戰以124:109獲勝的塞爾提克搶得聽牌優勢,但回到老鷹隊主場後雙方激戰至最後一刻,老鷹隊以96:94扳回一城,也讓系列回到波士頓主場決一勝負。 最終戰裡兩隊超過30次交換領先優勢(有資料紀錄38次,也有資料列32次),但真正的關鍵,卻可能是這個系列賽前Ramsey的演說。   ***   「各位先生,」當第一戰準備出場前,Ramsey對著隊友說。「我希望你們記住自己正為了我的季後賽獎金而戰。」 之後,這成了塞爾提克季後賽的例行公事,所有人都戲稱這是Ramsey在每年季後賽前的公開演說。 「沒錯,我的確這麼說。」Ramsey曾經大方的承認。「我們都需要季後賽的酬勞,我拿過最多的酬勞是3,200美金,當時這筆錢足夠我們度過一整個夏天。」 不僅如此,Ramsey還會預先計算好整個季後賽的總獎金,同時將每個人的可能分紅寫在球隊的黑板上。 「這只是要強調每場比賽的重要性,」Ramsey解釋著背後的原因。「我希望他們理解任何一個錯誤都可能影響到我的支票本。有時候我會寫得更多,例如,我會直接點出2,400美金的分紅等於我們一年花費在飲食上的費用,因此我會問隊友們:『你們明年一整年想要吃空氣度日嗎?』」   ***   最後,第七戰裡Heinsohn拿下全隊最高的37分,搶下23個籃板,救世主Russell則有全隊次高的19分與全場最多的32個籃板,同時敲了5次阻攻。兩個菜鳥驚人的表現彌補了兩大球星Cousy與Sharman的失常,兩人出手了40次只進了難以置信的5球。 儘管兩新人強勢出擊,但最後一分鐘老鷹隊還領先一分,並由前鋒Jack Coleman在中場接球,無人防守的他正準備輕鬆上籃拉大差距,此時原本還在另一端籃下的Russell拔腿狂奔,一路超越了隊友Heinsohn與兩隊其他球員,最後賞了Coleman一記大火鍋。最後就像是第一戰的翻版,兩隊打完48分鐘後又打成平手,Russell這次關鍵防守不但解救了球隊,也讓他的防守從此成為NBA史上最偉大的武器。 但塞爾提克最倚賴的得分機器Heinsohn在第二度延長賽裡卻吞下了第六次犯規不得不退場,失望至極覺得比賽已經無望的Heinsohn只能躲在大毛巾下懊悔的痛哭。 「我已經使盡全力,」Heinsohn說。「但此時我除了旁觀外卻無能為力。」 眼看著老前輩們在龐大壓力下失去平常的水準,Heinsohn又已經退場,Ramsey決定在關鍵時刻裡挺身而出捍衛自己的季後賽獎金。第一次延長賽裡Ramsey包辦球隊10分中的6分,第二度延長賽當雙方以121戰成平手時,Ramsey先是罰球得手,接著在下一波進攻時大膽單手投進25呎跳投,幫助塞爾提克以125:123贏得隊史第一座冠軍金盃。 「我知道當時沒有人能夠拚搶籃板,也許我不該如此大膽,」Ramsey賽後說。「但這球進了,我想這就代表了一切。」 這是個自己的獎金自己救的概念。 「他是個完美的關鍵時刻殺手,」棒籃雙棲的隊友Gene Conley說。「他在壓力下是如此冷靜,就像是他想要在緊張的時刻拿到球一般。當然,在那個年代,這種情況下你可以將球交給任何一個塞爾提克球員,但Ramsey看來是最享受的一人。在延長賽的最後時刻,他會故意站在罰球線附近,躍躍欲試。你知道你不需要擔心任何關於籃板的事情,Ramsey只是熱愛奪勝。」 衍生閱讀:One of A Kind:Gene Conley    最佳第六人的濫觴   6呎3吋的Ramsey在塞爾提克的陣容裡是個尷尬的存在。雖然身高略高於當時的後衛主流且各項全能,但在塞爾提克的後場裡,他的傳球不如Cousy,外線投射不及Sharman與後輩Sam Jones,防守則遜於K.C. Jones。而到了前場,他的身高只能勉強防守小號前鋒,當時甚至還沒有小前鋒這個位置,但塞爾提克的得分前鋒位置是穩穩地掌握在第一代黑洞Tommy Heinsohn的手裡,另一個前鋒位置則屬於保鑣祖師爺Jim Loscutoff。於是,1957-58球季到1961-62球季平均有15.5分、6.2籃板與1.9助攻的Ramsey卻只能從板凳出發,但也替NBA球員開出了另一條截然不同的道路。 衍生閱讀:塞爾提克的最佳第六人   總教練Auerbach在擔任華盛頓首都隊總教練時就有第六人的設計,但直到Ramsey出現才真正讓人注意到這個跨越時代的創舉,之後,這個角色在塞爾提克歷史上不斷傳承,John Havlicek、Satch Sanders、Paul Silas、Kevin McHale、Bill Walton、James Posey等人接續發揚光大。 「Ramsey從板凳上起身後就可以立刻開機,」皇家隊的名人堂前鋒Jack Twyamn說著自己的觀察。「他有張天使般的甜美臉孔,卻四處偷襲對手讓他們失去平常水準,但裁判們卻總認為他很無辜。」 「我覺得這工作很簡單,甚至還滿享受的。」Ramsey曾經這樣解釋著自己的第六人角色。「當球賽開始,我在板凳上可以觀察球賽的節奏。當我上場,我知道自己要防守的球員已經有些疲倦,因為他才剛面對了Heinsohn或是Loscutoff。因為我原本是個後衛,因此比大多數的前鋒都來得快速,這真的造成了他們的困擾。作為一個6呎3吋高的球員,如果不是有Russell,我根本不可能擔任前鋒的位置。但也要感謝Russell、Heinie(Heinsohn)、Loscy(Loscutoff)、Satch(Satch Sanders),他們讓我不需要太煩惱搶籃板這件事(註:Ramsey生涯有5.5籃板,並不差),我所要做的事情就是將自己負責防守的球員卡在外圍,當對手出手投籃,我就死命的網球場另外一端跑,我負責防守的這些大個子得要死命的追著我。當對手開始感到疲倦時我有卻有充分的休息,這是種心理戰,當替補上場時你會不自主地稍微放鬆,當對手在我進場時稍微鬆懈,就是我全力狂奔的時刻。」   Heinsohn跟其他傢伙   Ramsey深知Auerbach的習性,甚至是Auerbach一生中頗重要的朋友,他從旁的觀察與建議甚至讓Auerbach決定在1965-66球季後卸下總教練身分,專注在建構球隊之上,以免繁雜的大小瑣事以及壓力壓垮了這個一人撐起球隊大小事務的強人,而Ramsey也是老紅頭第一個想到的接班人,但他選擇繼續在老家經商而婉拒。 儘管如此,Ramsey的纖細與敏感卻也讓老紅頭在需要指正Ramsey在場內外犯下的錯誤時更顯得小心翼翼。 衍生閱讀:Tommy Heinsohn 以教練身分入主名人堂(上)    ▲ 影星Clint Eastwood與Bob Cousy、Tommy Heinsohn與Frank Ramsey(Twitter) 「Auerbach不能對Russell大吼,因為Russell有太強烈的自尊,」Heinsohn曾經這麼說。「他不能對Sharman大吼,因為Sharman會宰了他,但他也不能對Ramsey大吼,因為Ramsey會將這些記在心上,而且相信Auerbach是認真的。但Auerbach總得要對某人大吼大叫,於是他總是挑上我跟Loscutoff。」 「每當我在場上做錯事情,」Ramsey笑著說。「Red會在休息室裡咆嘯著:『聽好了,Heinsohn跟其他傢伙!』我總是知道那個其他傢伙指德就是我(這也證明Heinsohn的觀察有多正確)。他很少對我說什麼,但當他對著Tommy或是Loscy大吼時我總能正確地接收訊息。而他們兩個總是不將這些放在心上,他們根本就已經習慣不去管紅頭在說什麼。」   塞爾提克情誼   由於當時球員的薪水並不好,球季中球員們常得要一起合租公寓來分擔房租,因此不僅球員,甚至球員的家人間關係也十分緊密。也因為住得近,球員間也往往一起開車前往波士頓市區比賽,例如同樣就讀Holy Cross的Cosuy與Heinsohn都定居在校園所在的Worcester(不過兩人居住的白人區在Worcester的另一端),因此一同開車前往球館,Ramsey則是跟同樣住在附近的KC Jones同車。 而到了外地比賽,除了得要兩人同住一室外,NBA球員也跟一般旅客一樣得要在機場乖乖候機,更不時得要搭巴士在每個小鎮的球館間往返。而為了推銷當時還是弱勢運動的籃球賽,老闆Walter Brown會在開季前在新英格蘭區裡安排了許多熱身賽,曾經一度連續14天出賽。這樣的時代背景讓球員幾乎是整天二十四個小時的相處在一起,不管是打牌消磨時間或是互相捉弄,都讓這批隊友間的感情非常親密。 其中,大而化之又常少根筋的Heinsohn就是隊友們捉弄的對象,而平常在練習是總跟Heinsohn一組,且常常練出火氣甚至打上一架的Ramsey更常是其中的主角。事實上,腦袋靈活的Ramsey常是這些整人遊戲的主謀者,受害者更不僅是Heinsohn。 終於,Heinsohn決定展開反擊。 「Frank是一個非常細心的人,他會穿著整套西裝、領帶到球場,然後仔細地解開領扣、掛上領帶、掛上西裝……」Heinsohn說著。「有一周,我每天將他的鞋帶從四分之三處剪開,因此每回他穿鞋時鞋帶就會斷掉。下一周,我同樣每天在他的襯衫領扣上動手腳,這搞到他快瘋了。最後,他終於意識到有人在惡搞他,要我們停止惡作劇,但我才不理他,因為我還有許多點子,準備下一周要把他每本書的最後一張給剪掉。」 不管是Ramsey與Heinsohn,或是Auerbach與他的球員們,這種你所知道的大男孩間各種互相作弄的把戲層出不窮,也讓球員間的感情異常親密。 「我想這就是我們為何如此親近,而且一直延續至今的原因,」Ramsey說。「我們總是一起旅行,無論是搭車、搭巴士、搭火車,我記得有一回從波士頓到聖路易花了我們八個小時。我們打牌,但除此之外沒有太多娛樂可做,因此我們總是聚在一起消磨時間。我先是跟Loscy當室友,後來是Conley,有一回跟Sam Jones,但那不重要,因為我們總是在某人的房間裡玩牌。」 「我舉些例子你們就能了解,」Conley也曾經這樣說明塞爾提克球員間的情誼。「我跟這些傢伙一起打球是1958-61年的事情,但我還是每兩到三個月就接到Ramsey電話,他從肯塔基打給我。深夜裡他常會喝著波旁酒,順道問問大夥過得如何。我常會遇到Loscutoff,四天前才剛接到Sanders的來信問候,更是常在波士頓遇到Heinsohn。也許是因為我們都老了,讓我們更珍惜彼此。」   黑與白   但即使如此,隨著黑人球員在NBA的比重日漸增加,黑與白的種族問題也成了話題。雖然日後的波士頓成了白人籃球員最後的堡壘,但在當時,塞爾提克卻是黑人球員的第一座灘頭堡,Auerbach在1950年選秀會第二輪挑選了第一個黑人球員Chuck Cooper,是第一隻採用五位黑人先發球員的球隊,Russell更是第一個重要職業聯盟的黑人教練。 儘管出身農業州,但Ramsey跟其他塞爾提克隊友一樣對黑人隊友完全一視同仁,沒有任何芥蒂。   ▲ Satch Sanders, Bill Russell, Frank Ramsey, Sam Jones, Tommy Heinsohn, Bob Cousy, Jim Loscutoff(ESPN) 有一回,Ramsey在波士頓花園廣場外的北站書報攤買了份運動畫刊,在休息室裡翻閱時,Ramsey被一篇Russell文章的標題所吸引:「我恨所有的白人!」 Ramsey看著剛好走入休息室的Russell問到:「Russ,該死,我剛好看到這個。你恨所有的白人?你恨我嗎?」 嚇了一跳的Russell吃驚的說:「Frank,我被錯誤引用了」 標題殺人自古所在多有,自此,再也沒有塞爾提克隊員對類似的報導有過度反應。不過,Russell強烈的自尊心與黑人民權意識還是不時的成為他拿來掛在嘴上的話題。某場比賽裡,當Ramsey與Russell、Sanders、Sam Jones與KC Jones一起上場時,Russell就忍不住走向Ramsey並笑著說:「Frank,這會兒我們(黑人)可比你們(白人)多啊。」 「我們互相尊敬彼此,這一切都與膚色無關。」Ramsey說。   只為球隊的無私精神   雖然塞爾提克長年保持霸業,但十三年裡球員也多次面臨更迭,除了1950年一起進入聯盟的Cousy與Sharman外,1954年入行的Ramsey到了六零年代也已經步入三十大關,因此當Auerbach在1962年第七順位挑選來自俄亥俄州大的搖擺人John Havlicek時,他將取代Ramsey在球隊第六人地位的風聲就已經在四處流竄。 「Frank Ramsey對我說:『我真的非常高興你能入隊,』」Havlicek回憶著。「『你能夠讓我在聯盟裡多打上兩年。』我當時目瞪口呆,但這就是當時塞爾提克思考的方式,這就是贏家的態度,也是他們唯一考慮的事情。」 Ramsey不僅口說,也以行動支持Havlicke。Ramsey將自己在場內場外的點滴心得都傳授給自己的接班人,包括如何製造對手犯規等技巧(還記得Jack Twyamn早前的評語嗎?Ramsey曾經在1963年的運動畫刊上詳細介紹如何靠著假摔等技巧來騙取哨音,可說是此道的鼻祖之一),他也將如何扮演好第六人角色的秘訣毫不藏私的交到Havlicek手上。 這不只是體能上的準備,Ramsey要Havlicek隨時都要坐在總教練Red Auerbach身旁,好讓教頭可以時時刻刻都注意到自己已經準備完畢,同時絕對不要穿上熱身褲,熱身夾克也只能披在身上,這樣才能讓自己看來隨時都已經做好上場的準備。 「Frank知道早晚我會是他的接班人,」Havlicek說。「所以他傳授各種有幫助的大小事情給我,這就是塞爾提克運作的方式。有兩個原因,首先資深球員知道如果球隊有足夠的深度,他們的生涯可以因此而更延長。其次,如果有個新人加入球隊,他們希望這個新人可以將他們自己建立的傳統繼續傳遞下去。我們有獨特的團隊文化,在這裡沒有任何事情比贏球更重要。」   小球戰術鼻祖   1963-64球季,塞爾提克在總冠軍賽裡遇上了已經西遷的世仇舊金山勇士隊(原名為費城勇士隊,現金洲勇士隊前身)。除了老對手Wilt Chamberlain外,勇士隊還有6呎11吋的新秀中鋒Nate Thurmond以及6呎6吋的前鋒Tom Meschery。雖然面對勇士隊可怕的長人陣,但總教練Auerbach並沒有選擇以6呎5吋的保鑣祖師爺Jim Loscutoff來對付強敵,而是放上了僅有6呎3吋的Ramsey。 「正常來說,一般人會用Ramsey守Meschery,Heinsohn守Thurmond而Russell來守Chamberlain,但我不這樣玩。我用Russell來對抗Chamberlain,Ramsey來對付Thurmond,讓Heinsohn去守Meschery。」Auerbach解釋著。「Thurmond比Ramsey高了九吋,但Ramsey非常聰明,而且他有Russell協防。在進攻時,Thurmond就得要去守到Ramsey,Ramsey的速度非常快,可以輕鬆的切過Thurmond,於是我們有非常好的開局,打出類似15:0的比數,迫使勇士隊將其中一個長人換下場。」   ***   不僅對付勇士隊如此,早在1956-57球季的季後賽第一輪裡,Auerbach就指派Ramsey來防守雪城國民隊6呎8吋的超級中前鋒Dolph Schayes,雖然Schayes在最後兩戰拿下53分,但當Ramsey防守時他只投進了兩球。 「Ramsey是聯盟裡唯一能把我整得那麼慘的球員,」被三場橫掃後Schayes說。「他總是一直緊追著我不放。」 「我想他是對的,」Ramsey笑著說。「當我們一起在場上時,我才不管球在哪裡,我唯一知道的就是Dolph在哪裡。」 這個對位方式後來被Auerbach運用做不同的對戰組合之中,例如之後每當另一個死敵洛杉磯湖人隊將6呎5吋的Elgin Baylor移往後場時,Auerbach都會如此應對讓Ramsey去對付Baylor,逼得湖人隊不得不改變陣容來回應。 如果以現代的觀點,Red Auerbach可說是小球戰術的祖師爺。   ***   最後,塞爾提克以4:1輕取勇士隊,不但拿下Cousy退休後的第一冠,也成了Ramsey與Loscutoff退休前的最後一冠。 「這支球隊難以用言語來形容,」在20分鐘裡拿下18分奪下生涯第七冠的Ramsey在結束自己籃球生涯最後一戰後說。「多麼棒的一群戰士,即使明年沒有我,他們也能克服一切,因為這是一隻永遠低頭努力完成自己工作的球隊。」 「這真的非常難受,」當有人問到離開的感受時,Ramsey說。「今晚這裡再次爆滿,每個人都瘋狂的加油著,只有一個人除外。比賽將近終了時,我看著我的妻子Jean,而眼淚正滑過她的臉頰,這就是我倆對離開塞爾提克的感受。」 幾天後,當Ramsey最後一次走進休息室,最後一次打開自己的置物櫃,他回頭看著隊友笑著說:「各位先生,這比賽對我們每個人價值3,608美金,今晚好好享受吧。」 就這樣,Ramsey與Loscutoff的塞爾提克就在每年的年終聚餐後畫下句點,但他與隊友間的情緣並未結束。退役的Ramsey決定要開車回肯塔基,但有兩台車的他需要人幫他開車,於是另一位老將Clyde Lovellette先是載著Havlicek回到俄亥俄州,然後再幫Ramsey將車給開回肯塔基,成了他第六人生涯真正的句點。 除了在1970-71球季中臨危接下ABA肯塔基上校隊總教練外,Ramsey都在家鄉肯塔基經商。雖然在短短67場執教期間Ramsey只留下32勝35敗不及五成的勝率,卻一路率領上校隊接連淘汰邁阿密佛羅里達人隊與維吉尼亞紳士隊,最後在總冠軍賽裡欲上前隊友Sharman執教的猶他星隊。雙方各自在主場留住勝利,第七戰裡上校隊以121:131敗陣,也結束了Ramsey的籃球生涯。 贏得ABA總冠軍的Sharman隔年轉入洛杉磯湖人隊,成為史上唯二同時在ABA與NBA拿下桂冠的總教練(另一人是傳奇教練Alex Hannum)。 衍生閱讀:Sharman恩仇錄(5/7)總教練    投資專家Ramsey   當其他隊友用各種舒緩比賽的壓力時,Ramsey選擇閱讀作為出口,他閱讀報紙、商業雜誌來獲取與商業有關的知識,且特別熱衷於研究各種稅法,因為當球季結束,他又恢復到商人的身分。但另一方面,他也總是賽前第一個進入休息室的球員,讓自己有充裕的時間在心理與生理上準備好球賽。 「我常會提早到休息室,」Sharman回憶著。「而Frank通常已經在裡面研究所得稅或是閱讀些商業期刊,他永遠都在思考如何超前別人。」 他在商業上的長處也成了隊友的最佳顧問,不僅時常提供隊友稅務、投資上的建議,每當塞爾提克球員要進行投資時Ramsey更是最佳指標。 有一回,Ramsey找上了Auerbach、Heinsohn(Heinsohn同時是個非常成功的保險經紀人)與Loscutoff討論一筆蛋雞投資計畫。根據Ramsey的計算,如果有16,000隻蛋雞,每隻雞預計一生能生產20打的雞蛋,加上雞舍等折舊後,每隻母雞生產一顆蛋的成本為25美分,當時一顆雞蛋的售價為45美分,因此這代表著每隻母雞可以獲利4美金,或是一年60,000美金的利潤。 「他就像是那些大媽般貪婪,」Loscutoff說。「任何關於美金、美分的事情都錙銖必較。我們心想:老天,我們的錢還有哪裡會比這更安全的!」 但這回Ramsey卻失算了。首先是其他投資客也看到了商機,開始一窩蜂的投資起蛋雞,讓蛋價從45美分跌落到24美分,意味著根據Ramsey的成本分析每一顆雞蛋將損失1美分。但更糟的是一場風災侵襲了Ramsey的家鄉Madisonville,吹垮了鎮上的雞舍,也讓他們的投資泡了湯。 幾天後,Auerbach在他位於波士頓的辦公室裡收到了一封郵件,拆開信封,老紅頭看到了一張Madisonville當地報紙的頭版照片,照片裡傾倒的雞舍裡四處都是雞屍。 簡報旁留著一行Ramsey的註釋:這些是你們投資的蛋雞,我的都還好好的活著。 儘管如此,商人基因深植體內的Ramsey當然在談合約時可不含糊。根據Auerbach的說法,Ramsey與Heinsohn總會挑Auerbach離開波士頓回到華盛頓DC的時間找上老闆Walter Brown談薪水,因為比起強悍又精明的猶太裔Auerbach,Brown簡直就是個老好人,逼得Auerbach要求Brown不得在他不在的時候跟任何球員談定薪水。 「你知道我都怎麼處理合約嗎?」Ramsey也有他自己角度的故事。「每年在我返回肯塔基家鄉之前,我會跑去Walter的辦公室,將兩張空白的合約交給他的秘書。我會當場簽下兩份合約,然後請秘書提醒布朗先生將我的那份副本郵寄給我,不管他填上多少金額,我都信任他。我告訴你,如果我所有的商業夥伴都能跟布朗先生一樣,我永遠都不需要請律師了!」 「在職業生涯裡我最多一年賺兩萬美金,」Ramsey說。「但我覺得自己是薪水小偷,因為我只是做著自己喜歡的事情而已。」   永遠的塞爾提克   雖然Ramsey是出了名的對錢斤斤計較,但同時間他也精準的闡述了當時塞爾提克的團隊哲學,以下是他幾段關於塞爾提克精神的談話。 「每年,我們都設定目標要贏得冠軍,此時,我們真的不會去想去年做了些甚麼事情,」Ramsey說著塞爾提克的成功之道。「我們這群人年復一年的聚在一起打球,我們設定目標要贏球,而且說到做到。」 「我們是一群獨特的人,」Ramsey說。「紅頭挑選了幾乎所有的人,他挑選那些他知道能融入球隊的人,在這裡沒有私怨。如果有甚麼地方出錯,紅頭會說:『你在明尼蘇達會看來不錯。』但我不認為他真的交易掉任何人,除了Macauley,但Macauley希望自己被賣去聖路易(照顧小孩),沒有任何私怨。」 「紅頭選秀主要根據人格特質,球員當然得要有籃球天賦,但他希望你是個贏家,來自一間贏球的大學。就像他總是掛在嘴邊的:『你領薪水不是因為得了多少分,而是因為球隊贏球或輸球,以及你對球隊的貢獻。』」Ramsey說。 曾經,Ramsey說過這麼一段話來形容塞爾提克,也許這會是他最好的墓誌銘。 「知道自己在人們談論最偉大的籃球隊時被提及是件很棒的事情,一般都同意那些年的塞爾提克是籃球史上最棒的球隊之一,能夠成為其中一員是件美好的事情,這是我願意帶入墳墓裡的榮耀。有些人的一生平淡無奇,有些人成就非凡,我覺得此生最重要的事情,就是能成為這偉大團隊的一員。」 「但當我回想起那些日子,想起那些穿上塞爾提克制服的隊友,我記憶最深刻的是那分親密與友誼。塞爾提克的精神是你難以細數,但我難以不去想像如果每一個人都能有塞爾提克的那份驕傲與自律這個世界將會變得多麼美好,特別是如果世人能跟我們一樣相處融洽。」 「這是一切中最美好的部分。」   謹以此文獻給Frank Ramsey,永遠的塞爾提克傳奇。   R.I.P   參考資料   Lew

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian police say businessman Low Taek Jho, wanted for the looting of state investment fund 1MDB, has fled Macau to an unknown destination.
Police chief Mohamad Fuzi Harun said Wednesday that Low could have several passports, making it tougher to trace him.
1MDB was founded by then-Prime Minister Najib Razak but accumulated billions in debts and is being investigated in the US and several countries. It sparked public anger that led to Najib’s electoral defeat.

          CS Đã Dọn Chỗ Đón Kền Kền Phương Bắc! - Đồ Hiếm (Danlambao)       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Trên thế giới ngày nay chưa bao giờ có Quốc Hội nước nào lừa bịp người dân trắng trợn như Cuốc Hội Việt gian, chúng không xứng tên gọi là đại biểu, mà gọi đúng là đại bịp nhân dân! Hôm trước, chúng còn tuyên bố sẽ bàn bạc, nghiên cứu và thu thập ý kiến trước khi thông qua "Dự Luật Đặc Khu Kinh Tế (LĐKKT)" tại Vân Đồn, Bắc Vân Phong và Phú Quốc. Vậy mà hôm sau, thông tin trên mạng với hàng loạt những hình ảnh các công trình gần như hoàn thành tại Vân Đồn (Quảng Ninh), và tất cả đã được khởi công xây dựng từ hơn 5 năm trước! Trong dự thảo LĐKKT, Vân Đồn là đặc khu ưu tiên phát triển "công nghệ cao", nhưng theo đỉnh cao trí tệ nhà sản công nghệ cao thuần túy chỉ là "dịch vụ đỏ đen" như: Casino, trường đua ngựa, sân golf, mát-xa, khách sạn với dịch vụ giải trí đèn đỏ (công nghệ cao đâu chẳng thấy, chỉ thấy toàn công ngủ).

Các công trình tại Vân Đồn đã xây từ 2015 và sắp hoàn thành
Liệt kê một vài công trình lớn hầu như đã hoàn tất tại Vân Đồn nhằm chuẩn bị mở ĐKKT, để thấy rõ chủ trương bán nước của ba bầy đàn: Việt gian (tư sản đỏ), Việt cộng (cán gộc) và Tàu cộng kền kền:

- Sân bay Vân Đồn: Được bầy báo lề đảng nổ tành banh là sân bay hiện đại nhất VN vừa cho dân sự lẫn quân sự (đây là điểm đáng chú ý). Dự án sân bay Vân Đồn này đã được thủ tướng phê duyệt từ 2009, nhưng phải đợi đến 2015 khi Trọng lú, Lịch ottopin, Phúc niểng, Ngân đù lên nắm quyền (và thu gom đủ tài sản) mới khởi công xây dựng. Công trình 2 tỷ USD này do Tập đoàn Sun Group thi công (vốn điều lệ 1300 tỷ Hồ tệ), dự kiến sẽ khai trương hoành tráng ngay sau khi thông qua luật ĐKKT vào cuối 6/2018. Nhưng ơn trời, sản tính không bằng dân quyết!

Hãy soi thêm ở đây: Tập đoàn Sun Group - một tập đoàn với nhiều thành tích hình sự về phá hoại môi trường, hủy hoại sinh thái, đòi tiền mãi lộ, toàn xây dựng tại các nơi an ninh quốc phòng "nhạy cảm". Lần này Sun Group lại trúng thầu đậm tuy chỉ với số vốn ít ỏi là 50 triệu USD, hỏi làm sao mà đủ sức thi công một dự án sân bay gấp 40 lần lên đến 2 tỷ USD? Câu trả lời rõ ràng là nhờ vào sự hùn hạp của "Liên minh ma quỷ", gồm trợ lực qua các ngân hàng của các nhóm lợi ích (Trọng, Phúc, Lịch, Ngân) và phần lớn (hơn 90%) từ đám kền kền Tàu cộng. Đó là mặt khuất về tài chánh, còn về mặt công nghệ: Sun Group chỉ chuyên về xây dựng dân dụng, có biết gì về công nghệ cao, thông tin, viễn thông, phân phối hàng hóa (logistik), khí tượng... để xây trạm radar, nhà điều hành phi trường, mạng điện lực, mạng lưới điện não cho các dịch vụ, an ninh quốc phòng... Chắc chắn phải có sự chỉ đạo của đám kền kền Tàu cộng (còn dấu mặt) phía sau, và chính nó là chủ nhân vừa góp vốn, vừa điều khiển toàn bộ phi trường (được cho là sẽ) lớn nhất VN! Đúng là Bộ Cá Tra đã chủ trương "giao nỏ thần" cho bọn tình báo Hoa Nam trong vụ này.

- Khu phức hợp nghỉ dưỡng & casino Vân Đồn: Chiếm mặt bằng 2.500 ha với tổng đầu tư 2 tỷ USD. Lần nữa Sun Group được UBND Quảng Ninh và Phúc Niểng chấp thuận làm chủ dự án cho Khu phức hợp nghỉ dưỡng kèm casino tại Vân Đồn, mặc dù theo báo cáo, Sun Group chỉ mới gom được 312,5 triệu USD (1 phần 6) vốn đầu tư từ các cán gộc tại Quảng Ninh. Số tiền còn lại gần 1700 triệu USD còn lại vẫn chưa công khai chủ nguồn vốn, vì có thể đây là tiền của các tài phiệt xã hội đen từ Macau và Hongkong góp vào.

- Tổ hợp du lịch Sonasea Dragon Bay được giao khoán cho Tập đoàn CEO Group với đầu tư trị giá 4.950 tỷ Hồ tệ (~ 215 triệu USD) trên quy mô 94 ha tại xã Hạ Long, Vân Đồn. Theo vết Facebook của Tập đoàn CEO Group, tập đoàn này xuất phát từ một tổ chức chuyên về giáo dục và đào tạo để "Hỗ trợ doanh nghiệp Việt phát triển bằng những chương trình đào tạo thực tiễn" vậy mà từ 2014 đã xé rào nhảy sang đầu tư bất động sản tại Phú Quốc, rồi lên như diều bay từ ĐK Phú Quốc đến ĐK Vân Đồn, lại trúng thầu xây dựng công trình với trị giá gấp 800% số vốn mà CEO Group đầu tư vào dự án! Chắc chắn hội đồng quản trị của CEO Group toàn là con cháu bên vợ hoặc bên chồng của đám quan đỏ trung ương đang chơi Gameshow "Cán bộ giấu mặt" để rửa tiền tham nhũng!

- Đường cao tốc Hạ Long - Vân Đồn: Dài gần 60km kết nối TP. Hạ Long với sân bay Vân Đồn hoàn tất vào cuối tháng 6/18, giá trị đầu tư gần 14.000 tỷ Hồ tệ (610 triệu USD) do Cty BOT Biên Cương làm chủ đầu tư. Cty BOT Biên Cương là cty con của Xây dựng Minh Thành, mà chỉ sau 1 năm đã giàu sụ lên hơn 400 lần qua các dự án BOT. Và sở hữu chủ của Minh Thành trong khoảng thời gian 2014-2017 đã làm ăn chung qua các phi vụ BOT với cựu đại bịp cuốc hội Huyền Tâm (tân quý phi của vua (không ngai) Nông Đức Mạnh trong Tập đoàn Minh Tâm!) Lần ra từ từ đầu mối mới thấy chỉ nhờ… chăn nuôi heo mà gia đình các quan đỏ giàu đến kinh hồn. 

- Khu nghĩ dưỡng giải trí cao cấp (từ A đến Z) tại đảo Ngọc Vừng, Vân Đồn: Dự án do Tập đoàn FLC đầu tư lên đến 2 tỷ USD. Lại phải soi kỹ cách làm ăn của Tập đoàn FLC, để biết rõ thêm những ma mãnh của các đại gia đỏ Việt gian và các thế lực phía sau:

1. FLC nhờ các quan đỏ đầu triều chống lưng: Tuy nổi tiếng với đầy rẫy những sai phạm trong quy hoạchxây dựng như cho xây công trình mà không khảo sát thực địa, không có hệ thống phòng cháy chữa cháy, tự ý xây công trình trên rừng phòng hộ… Tập đoàn FLC vẫn được chọn là chủ đầu tư cho công trình hơn 2 tỷ USD này. 

2. FLC chơi mê hồn trận "đảo vốn" ngân hàng: Trong 6 tháng đầu năm 2016, FLC đã vay thêm được 1.776 tỷ từ ngân hàng, nhưng chỉ đem trả nợ lại ngân hàng có 439 tỷ đồng rồi lại vay tiếp, và số nợ chồng chất thì cứ ngâm tôm dài hạn. Cách quịt nợ này được rất nhiều tập đoàn ở VN sử dụng Hoàng Anh Gia Lai hay Tôn Hoa Sen… dùng để tăng vốn một cách bất hợp pháp. Phải đợi đến khi các ngân hàng sập tiệm mới cháy nhà ra mặt chuột như trường hợp Đinh la Thăng và Ocean Bank.

3. FLC cấu kết với Tàu cộng: "Khách trú" (bên kia biên giới là nhà) đang mượn tay Trịnh văn Quyết, chủ tịch Tập đoàn FLC ra mặt đấu thầu công trình, rồi sẽ nhượng lại sau khi ĐKKT đã được thông qua. Chính miệng Trịnh văn Quyết trong một lần hội thảo đã tiết lộ "FLC có thể chuyển nhượng cả dự án cho nhà đầu tư nước ngoài". 

- Hàng loạt công trình phụ như: Trung tâm hội nghị, Kinh doanh khách sạn Casino và đèn đỏ, sân Golf, trường đua ngựa (trên đảo Cái Bầu, Trà Ngọ), Trung tâm thương mãi, Trung tâm trình diễn, Spa, Sân bay lên thẳng (Chiếm 3.000 hecta tại 7 khu trên núi và các phân khu trên các đảo) đã được âm thầm giao cho công ty CP Vân Đồn. Được biết, công ty CP Vân Đồn vừa mới thành lập hồi cuối năm 2017 với vốn điều lệ là 980 tỷ Hồ tệ, làm sao mà có thể huy động vốn trong vòng 6 tháng lên hàng mấy trăm lần để đảm nhận hàng loạt công trình đồ sộ như thế?

- Chưa kể, trên địa bàn tỉnh Quảng Ninh hiện có 5 Khu công nghiệp (KCN) gồm Cái Lân, Việt Hưng, Hải Yên, Đông Mai và Hải Hà. Trong đó có 3 KCN đang triển khai xây dựng cơ sở hạ tầng và đã cho nhà đầu tư thứ cấp thuê lại đất để thực hiện dự án! Còn ai trồng khoai xứ này, Khu sản xuất Đất hiếm tại Việt Hưng với số vốn 5 triệu USD là do bàn tay lông lá Tàu cộng đầu tư, và tại Hải Hà với Dự án Sản xuất Hợp kim có số vốn 30 triệu USD bước đầu mang danh Đài Loan, nhưng toàn bộ công nhân sẽ thuê từ TC, y choang như mô hình của Nhà máy Formosa Hà Tĩnh. 

Sau khi lượt qua các công trình đến nay đã xây gần như hoàn thành tại Vân Đồn, ta có thể suy ra được nguyên tắc chọn thầu và nguyên tắc hoạt động của Tập đoàn bán nước Nguyễn Phú Trọng (Việt gian-Việt cộng-Tàu cộng) như sau:

Nguyên tắc chọn thầu
Các công trình này do các nhóm Việt gian tư sản đỏ ra mặt trúng thầu xây dựng, mà chẳng qua một cuộc đấu thầu minh bạch nào cả. Đám Việt gian này luôn được đảng đỏ ưu tiên giao trọng trách theo công thức bất di bất dịch là: "Thứ nhất hậu duệ (con cháu các cụ), thứ nhì quan hệ (cùng phe nhóm lợi ích), thứ ba hồ/mao tệ (lại quả cho các quan đỏ ít nhất là 30% tổng giá trị công trình)", nên Việt gian tư sản đỏ đã được thông báo (móc ngoặc) từ trên trung ương cs ngấm ngầm cả chục năm trước về những quy hoạch (công trình và dự án) béo bở để ăn chia với nhau.

Nguyên tắc hoạt động
Về tài chánh: Việt gian cùng với Việt cộng tuy có nhiều tiền, nhưng vì phải phân tán mỏng cho nhiều công trình, nên chúng không đủ vốn để đảm nhận tất cả đồng lúc. Chúng thường dùng hai cách: 

- Mượn ngân hàng rồi dùng mánh "đảo vốn": Xem lại vụ FLC ở trên, nghĩa là mượn tiền ngân hàng, sau một thời gian thì các ngân hàng này sẽ đồng loạt khai phá sản. Tiền thì Việt gian và Việt cộng lấy, chỉ có người dân là mất trắng. Do đó dân mình phải rút hết tiền từ ngân hàng ra là vì vậy.

- Liên doanh với Tàu cộng: Gặp các công trình chục ngàn tỷ Hồ tệ thì đám Việt gian ra mặt là chủ đầu tư để trúng thầu (hê hê không có chữ TQ à nhe), rồi Việt gian và Việt cộng hùn vốn 2 phần, kền kền Tàu cộng góp vào 8 phần và trở thành chủ nhân của công trình tuy chỉ núp sau cánh gà giật dây.

Về công nghệ: Để nhanh chóng thu hồi vốn thì kền kền Tàu cộng bắt buộc phải dùng:

1. Kỹ thuật lạc hậu 20 năm (là ít), 

2. Công nghệ rẻ tiền gây thảm họa môi trường (mà ngay cả tại TQ cũng không cho áp dụng), 

3. Dùng 100 % đám công nhân khách trú (người dân nước mình vẫn thất nghiệp dài dài), 

4. Lén lút xả thải, chôn giấu chất độc hại (rác nguyên tử, rác công nghiệp),

5. Khai man thuế, hay trốn thuế qua việc hối lộ cho quan chức Việt cộng để được miễn giảm thuế 99 năm, điển hình vụ Formosa hối lộ tượng vàng 50 ký cho Trọng lú, 

6. Thu hoa hồng cao qua việc rửa tiền cho các quan đỏ Việt cộng, hay các tổ chức tội phạm thế giới (chế độ độc tài, thuốc phiện, buôn người, buôn bán nội tạng) dưới danh nghĩa là tiền luân chuyển của sòng bạc casino, 

7. Thu phí qua các công trình BOT trong hơn 20 năm

Đó mới là chảy máu tiền tệ vào tay Tàu cộng, chưa nói đến những mất mát không đo lường được như: Chủ quyền đất nước, an ninh quốc phòng, môi trường, văn hóa, di dân, giáo dục... chắc chắn sẽ từ từ bị Tàu cộng khống chế hết.

Kết luận
Theo chủ trương lớn của nhà sản, sau khi hàng loạt các công trình về hạ tầng như sân bay, đường cao tốc Vân Đồn - Hạ Long, đường cao tốc Vân Đồn - Móng Cái, khách sạn, khu dân cư được hoàn thành, thì lũ đại bịp Cuốc Hội sẽ cho thông qua luật ĐKKT nhanh chóng để rước bầy kền kền Tàu cộng về xâu xé đất nước và dân mình.

Chưa có đặc khu chính thức mà hàng đoàn "tàu lạ" ngang nhiên đánh bắt cá trên hải phận VN, cách Đà Nẵng chỉ vài chục hải lý; hàng trăm ngàn lao động phổ thông Tàu cộng nghênh ngang vào làm việc và sinh sống trong các đặc khu VN; hàng chục ngàn khách trú được phép vô ra từ Bắc chí Nam không cần giấy phép, được hành nghề, mua bán nhà đất; đài phát thanh Nha Trang oang oang xì xồ để phục vụ quý khách trú... Theo tin của BBC: “Người Trung Quốc ồ ạt mua nhà giá rẻ ở VN – Nhu cầu mua bất động sản tại Việt Nam của người Trung Quốc trong quý đầu năm 2018 cao gấp 300% so với năm 2017”. Rõ ràng tà quyền cs đã bật đèn xanh cho Tàu cộng vào mua bán nhà đất tự do, còn dân Việt thì bị cưỡng chế ra khỏi những khu đất vàng!

Đất nước là của toàn dân, nên con dân nước Việt không thể nào tiếp tục im lặng nhìn Tập đoàn bán nước Nguyễn Phú Trọng (cộng sản - lưu manh - khốn nạn) muốn đem bán cho Tàu cộng lúc nào cũng được. ĐKKT chính là một hình thức bán nước của đảng csVN, là rước voi về dày mả tổ, là Hiệp ước Thành Đô biến tướng. Mỗi ngày dân ta biểu tình chống ĐKKT, là bọn cs Việt gian mất toi vài tỷ USD trên sàn chứng khoán như chơi. Nên dân ta phải tiếp tục đoàn kết xuống đường, phải bất tuân dân sự, đình công bãi khóa đồng loạt sâu rộng trên mọi ngành nghề: Điện, nước, rác, nhà thương, trường học, giao thông (kẹt xe), xí nghiệp cho đến khi lật đổ tà quyền cs mới thôi. Nhất quyết như vậy, đây là con đường duy nhất để dân ta dành lại quyền sống của mình: "Diệt cộng trước khi để cộng diệt!"

Đừng để quá muộn như Tây Tạng, dân tôi ơi.

Jho Low flees Macau for China?

 | July 11, 2018
A news report says the businessman is believed 
to have travelled by car or private jet







PETALING JAYA: Fugitive Malaysian businessman Low Taek Jho is believed to have fled Macau and is now in mainland China amid intensified efforts by Malaysian police to arrest him.

He is believed to have travelled by car or private jet. Quoting security sources, South China Morning Post said the exact whereabouts of Low, commonly known as Jho Low, remained unclear.

“It is almost without doubt safe to say that Low is now on the mainland. In fact, that is probably one of the reasons he came to Macau in the first place,” the source was quoted as saying.

The businessman is accused of corruption, bribery and money laundering by law enforcement agencies in several countries in connection with the 1MDB financial scandal

j bay open
Después de varios días en los que el mar no ha acompañado el WSL ha anunciado que la jornada final del J-Bay Open en la categoría femenina se celebrará el próximo viernes, cuando está previsto que llegue una nueva marejada y acompañe el viento.

Pese a que la organización tiene hasta el próximo 16 de julio para finalizar la prueba, las previsiones son tan claras, que han declarado que el viernes será el último día de competición.

"Vamos a realizar una única llamada para este viernes 12 de julio", ha comentado Jessi Miley-Dyer, comisionada adjunta del WSL. "Estoy confiada que va a ser el día para nosotras, y que podamos acabar todas las mangas de la prueba. Pinta muy bien, dos metros y viento offshore. En principio podría ser el mejor día que hemos visto en J-Bay, así que estoy emocionada. No habrá llamada el jueves e iremos directamente al viernes".

La competición arrancará por tanto el viernes con las mangas de tercera ronda, en la que pasarán a los cuartos de final las dos primeras surfistas de cada manga. Cuatro de las cinco surfistas que encabezan la clasificación general estarán en esta ronda, tan solo la bicampeona del mundo Tyler Wright faltará a la cita con la mejor versión de J-Bay.

Emparejamientos de tercera ronda del J-Bay Open femenino
Heat 1: Johanne Defay (FRA), Carissa Moore (HAW), Bianca Buitendag (ZAF)
Heat 2: Lakey Peterson (USA), Malia Manuel (HAW), Coco Ho (HAW)
Heat 3: Stephanie Gilmore (AUS), Nikki Van Dijk (AUS), Sage Erickson (USA)
Heat 4: Tatiana Weston-Webb (BRA), Caroline Marks (USA), Bronte Macaulay (AUS)

Hi All,finally here is a photo journal of my recent trip to Penang for the annual Malaysia Miniature Hobby Show over the weekend of 30 June and 1 July 2018.

It was a risky gambit that paid off. Another outstanding Thai modeler making her debut at the show was Panichakul Nakham with this 1/35 scale diorama titled Skycar Garage.  Not only a young and beautiful lady, she also has some serious modelling skills to boot. With Naoyuki Uehara and Kuniyuki Takeuchi of the Crossroads club from Japan.Also hailing from Japan is Naoto Takada with his breathtaking Magach 6 with full interior which won him a Gold medal in the armor advanced class.

           9-Year Old Boy Forced By His Mother To Smuggle 40 IPhone Xs       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A child has been caught trying to smuggle dozens of iPhone Xs with a total worth of at least £43,000 from Macau into mainland China.

The nine-year-old Hong Kong boy had 14 Apple smartphones wrapped around his torso and another 26 hidden in his backpack, according to Chinese customs.

The terrified child admitted that his mother had demanded him to carry the iPhones and meet her at the other side of the border in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province.

According to the Gongbei District customs in Zhuhai, officers noticed a boy travelling alone from Macau on July 4 through the green channel.


They stopped the child, known by his surname Li, for a check.

Officers were shocked to find that Li was carrying 40 iPhone Xs - on his body as well as in his bag. The latest iPhone X model sells 9,605 yuan (£1087) each at the Apple stores in China.

After being caught by the officers, the boy was apparently terrified.

Um homem de 43 anos foi morto a tiros na noite desta segunda-feira (09), na rua Capitão Bastos, na cidade de Parnamirim, região metropolitana de Natal. Kléber Oliveira trabalhava como jardineiro no cartório do município e caminhava quando acabou surpreendido por homens em um carro.

          Por que Andréa Lemos?       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Por Celso Amancio

Chega a ser cômico, ler algumas análises na imprensa de Macau e ver figuras conhecidas dos bastidores da política atuando nas redes sociais com sensacionalismo acerca da decisão da justiça que pede a exoneração da jornalista Andrea Lemos, do cargo de Secretária do Trabalho, Habitação e Assistência Social do Município. 

1º Nesse imbróglio, o Ministério Público fez seu papel e tem lá as suas razões, já que a lei não é uma operação da aritmética e permite várias interpretações;

2º Decisão da justiça é para ser cumprida e o princípio do contraditório é um corolário do processo legal, e significa que todo acusado terá o direito de defesa;

3º Saindo da seara jurídica, soa muito estranho tudo que tenho lido até agora pelo simples fato de ter dividido por tantas vezes as mesas de trabalho e da cozinha da maioria das ex primeiras damas que foi também secretária de Assistência Social com os críticos de hoje;

Apenas isso me chama atenção.

E vamos lá: 

Governo Afonso Lemos-Secretária de Ação Social: Primeira-dama Elisabeth Lemos
Governo Manoel Cruz-Tatá- Secretária de Ação Social: Primeira-dama Iracema de Melo e Cristiane (filha do então prefeito)
Governo José Antônio Menezes- Secretária de Ação Social: Primeira-dama Terezinha Menezes
Governo Flávio Veras- A então primeira-dama Erineide não exerceu o cargo
Governo Interino José Filho- A então primeira-dama Vilani não exerceu o cargo 
Governo Kerginaldo Pinto- Secretária de Ação Social: Primeira-dama Aline Galdino e a senhora Luciana Alves (exerceu o cargo casada no civil com o então prefeito);
Governo Interino Einstein Barbosa- Secretária de Ação Social: Primeira-dama Suê Barbosa.
Pelo que vocês leram, me parece que até dezembro de 2016, esse povo não sabia o que era NEPOTISMO.

Detalhe: muitos dos que hoje jogam pedras em Andrea são figuras também bem conhecidas do Ministério Público, não por méritos em projetos ou por qualquer outra contribuição para Macau, mas por histórias que todo bom macauense que reside aqui ou fora, sabe de có e salteado.

          Jho Low hilang lagi      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

 
   

Ahli perniagaan Low Taek Jho yang kini diburu pihak berkuasa Malaysia telah meninggalkan Macau ke lokasi yang tidak diketahui.

Perkara ini disahkan Ketua Polis Negara Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun dalam sidang media di Bukit Aman hari ini.

Beliau berkata, pihaknya menerima emel daripada polis Macau dua hari lalu yang memaklumkan tentang perkara itu.

"Kita terima emel daripada (polis) Macau dua hari lalu, kata Jho Low sudah tinggalkan Macau," katanya.

Bagaimanapun, kata Fuzi, polis Macau tidak menyatakan bila Jho Low meninggalkan wilayah itu.

Dalam kenyataan untuk media tempatan yang turut diterima Malaysiakini, Jabatan Polis Persekutuan Macau berkata pihaknya kesal dengan PDRM yang menyebarkan "berita mengenai Macau yang tidak sejajar dengan fakta", tetapi tidak menghurainya dengan lanjut.

"Individu bertanggungjawab atas pernyataan media baru-baru ini oleh pasukan polis negara yang berkaitan tentang berita mengenai Macau adalah tidak sejajar dengan fakta.

"Pasukan polis sangat kesal mengenai perkara ini. Mengikut peruntukan undang-undang, polis Macau tidak secara terbuka mendedahkan maklumat masuk dan keluar individu," katanya kenyataan itu.

Jabatan Kehakiman Amerika Syarikat (DOJ) dalam saman sivilnya mendakwa Jho Low terlibat dalam pelbagai penyelewengan dana 1MDB.

Antaranya ahli perniagaan itu dituduh menggunakan wang 1MDB untuk membeli kapal pesiar mewah Equanimity, barang kemas untuk model Australia Miranda Kerr, serta berlian merah jambu bernilai AS27.3 juta kepada isteri "Malaysian Official 1 (MO1)".

DOJ mendakwa berlian itu dibeli menggunakan sebahagian daripada AS$620 juta yang didakwa MO1 sebagai wang yang telah dikembalikan kepada penderma diraja Arab Saudi, tetapi sebenarnya disalurkan ke akaun yang dikawal Jho Low.

MO1 dikenalpasti sebagai bekas perdana menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Rostam J. Neuwirth (University of Macau - Faculty of Law) has posted Law in the Time of Oxymora: A Synaesthesia of Language, Logic and Law (London: Routledge, 2018) on SSRN.  Here is the abstract: What do different concepts like true lie, bad luck, honest thief, old news, spacetime, glocalization, symplexity, sustainable development, constant change, soft law, substantive due process, pure law, bureaucratic efficiency and global justice have in common? What connections do they share with innumerable paradoxes, like the ones of happiness, time, globalization, sex, and of free will and fate?Law in the Time of Oxymora provides answers to these conundrums by critically comparing the apparent rise in recent years of the use of rhetorical figures called “essentially oxymoronic concepts” (i.e. oxymoron, enantiosis and paradox) in the areas of art, science and law. Albeit to varying degrees, these concepts share the quality of giving expression to apparent…

1.1 Project Background

Binhaiwan New District of Dongguan City, located in the intersection between the east and west banks of the urban cluster of the Pearl River Estuary in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area, is adjacent to Hong Kong and Macau, closely connected with Guangzhou and Shenzhen, especially the national free trade zones such as Qianhai of Shenzhen and Nansha of Guangzhou, and an important window for Dongguan to open to the outside world. Promoting the construction of Dongguan Binhaiwan New District is a practice of Dongguan to implement the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area strategy and actively integrate into the construction of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen sic-tech innovation corridor, a major strategic plan of Dongguan to seize historical opportunities and create a new growth pole and an exciting point, as well as a significant strategic measure of Dongguan to propel high-quality development.

In October 2017, Dongguan Binhaiwan New District (hereinafter as "the New District ") has been formally established. The New District comprises three parts, namely Jiaoyi Bay, Shajiao Peninsula and Weiyuan Island with a planning area of 83.2 km2 , within which the existing land area is 51.8 km2 and planned to be 57.7 km2 after construction. Currently, the New District is positioned by Guangdong Province as the leading area of collaborative development for Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area, and recognized as one of the ten core innovation platforms of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen sic-tech innovation corridor and a major regional development platform of the Pearl River Delta in the Guangdong coastal economic belt. Furthermore, It is also the important platform for Dongguan to participate and integrate into the development of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area, and has been defined by Dongguan Municipal Committee and Government as the new key engine for Dongguan's future thirty-year economic development.

In order to accelerate its planning and construction with high standard and implement the ecological development concept of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, it is required by Dongguan Municipal Committee and Government to carry out an international bidding for the design of the coastal landscape corridor in the New District with high standard and high quality, and for this purpose invite internationally renowned design firms to involve in its planning and design, as well as its detailed implementation plans. In this way, in combination with requirements of the current city masterplan, it's to build a dynamic coastline and functional zone dominated by leisure & open spaces and public service facilities such as culture, sports, office, and business etc., along the coastline of the New District, and create a coastal landscape leisure belt which is internationally first-class, predominant in the Bay Area and most attractive.

1.2 Competition Goal

This International Competition of Planning and Design for the Coastal Landscape Corridor of Dongguan Binhaiwan New District, is organized by the Management Committee of Dongguan Binhaiwan New District, with an aim to build the coastal landscape corridor into a widow to display urban image, a functional area full of vitality and a dynamic ecological corridor of the New District.
