          Flower power at Kew Gardens: Perennial borders and rose garden      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

My indulgent family and I took the Tube to Kew Gardens (officially, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew) while in London last month. I could easily have spent the whole day there, but we had only about 4 or 5 hours, so I had to pick and choose among the various gardens and hope we didn’t miss anything spectacular. Speaking of spectacular, the Great Broad Walk Borders made for a gorgeous start to our explorations. Only two years old, this long, colorful double border studded with pyramidal yews draws you along a promenade between the Palm House, one of two grand glasshouses, and the Orangery. In mid-June, swaths of purple-flowering perennials mingled with green foliage, punctuated with jolts of yellow and red. A collection of magnificent trees lines the border and keeps the eye from wandering. The white Orangery building, which houses a restaurant, peeks over ‘Rozanne’ geranium, allium, and Jerusalem sage. Allium looks like purple sparklers. Even more so when it goes to seed. Each plant is arranged in a ribbon that arcs through the bed, creating distinct color blocks. The colors were vibrant on this cloudy day. I wasn’t the only one photographing. Also, I adore those clipped yew pyramids. […]

          Investigative Reporter Jack Gillum to Cover Tech for ProPublica      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ProPublica announced today that Jack Gillum is joining its staff as a senior reporter covering technology and the ways algorithms, big data and social media platforms impact civil rights. He starts on July 30.

Gillum comes to ProPublica from The Washington Post, where he was part of the investigative team for the past year digging into topics ranging from mismanaged taxpayer funds to troubled relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

Prior to the Post, Gillum was a reporter in the D.C. investigative unit at The Associated Press. During his six years there, he broke stories on the existence and location of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, as well as a secretive, U.S.-backed “Cuban Twitter” program that mined subscriber data for political purposes. He was also the recipient of the John L. Dougherty Award for exemplary work by an AP staff member under the age of 30.

Gillum began his career as a business reporter and database specialist at the Arizona Daily Star in Tucson, his hometown, covering technology and aerospace firms. Later as a database editor for USA Today, Gillum helped expose rampant cheating in D.C.’s public school system under then-chancellor Michelle Rhee for the paper’s “Testing the System” series, which won an Education Writers Association Award.

“Time and again, Jack has proven to be a formidable reporter with the tenacity and skill set to do some of the industry’s most ambitious journalism,” said ProPublica managing editor Robin Fields. “We’re confident he’ll be a great addition to our newsroom as we advance our coverage of technology and its impact on our lives.”

“Technology’s underlying moral and civil rights issues stand to be one of the most important stories of our time,” said Gillum. “I’m thrilled to be joining such a talented newsroom of investigative reporters and editors who have already begun exposing areas of algorithmic injustice.”


          The New Vid Economy: Making A Living From Crowdfunded Game Analysis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Almost four years ago, Mark Brown posted a YouTube video on adaptive soundtracks in games. The piece, snappily edited and confidently narrated, could have stood alone as a neat look behind the curtain at the tricks used by designers when creating a musical score that reacts to the player’s actions. However, the quality of Mark Brown’s first video served a larger purpose: a statement of intent. More than 90 videos and 450,000 subscribers later, Game Maker’s Toolkit has proven itself to be a wide-ranging, insightful, and consistent source of game analysis on YouTube.

From the feeling of Kratos’ axe to the secrets of Resident Evil 4’s difficulty system, Game Maker’s Toolkit has remained one of the most popular game-analysis channels on YouTube. A look into The Legend of Zelda turned into an extensive side-project called “Boss Keys,” which went over virtually every title in the series and developed an intricate mapping system to describe the layout of each dungeon. A deep dive on BioShock’s Fort Frolic became a meditation on what creates effective level design.

Brown’s videos are now his full-time job. But unlike massive streamers such as PewDiePie or Ninja, his subscriber count isn’t what keeps him afloat; instead, about one percent of his viewership provides his income through the crowdfunding site Patreon.

Even for a highly popular channel, making the jump to an entirely crowd-funded salary was an intimidating prospect for Brown. “I thought about if my Patreon was at the same level as my current salary, then maybe I could quit,” he says. “But then the thing about Patreon is it fluctuates so much … so I decided if it was double my salary then I would quit my job. And that was what happened.”

Brown is the highest-earning game-analysis creator on Patreon. Earning more than $9,100 a month (or just shy of $100,000 a year after the site takes its cut), he’s able to devote all his regular working hours to his channel. But that’s a luxury most creators can’t afford.

Brown's Patreon Page

Even in dog years, the game-analysis scene on YouTube isn’t old enough to drink yet. There are outliers; channels like Super Bunnyhop and Errant Signal have been producing well-researched content for more than half a decade. But the format has only truly flourished since 2015 or so. Channels like Joseph Anderson, Turbo Button, and Writing on Games have all risen to relative prominence in the past three years.

In 2018, these channels are ubiquitous (I’m subscribed to 63 at the moment), and most have a familiar formula. A particular game mechanic or story beat is chosen at the beginning of the video and analyzed in detail, almost always by a man, typically over subdued electronic beats and footage of the relevant game. Successful channels sometimes have gimmicks – NakeyJakey talks directly to the camera while balancing on an exercise ball – but most stick to the established format.

Predictability doesn’t lead to an easy production, however. A far cry from sprawling Let’s Plays or daily streams, a single video essay can take weeks or months to complete. Sometimes this is reflected in the video length, like the scholarly Noah Caldwell-Gervais, who routinely churns out 30-50 pages of analysis and couches them in multiple-hour videos. More often though, it’s because tight editing and delicate argumentation are required for even a short video.

“One thing you become very aware on YouTube, as compared to writing, is audience retention, which is basically if viewers are just getting bored they'll turn off the video,” says Brown. “And you get very in-depth stats on the exact second people get bored …[I] sort of guide them by the hand through the whole video experience.”

Because even the most prolific analysis channels can only manage to put out a handful of videos a month, living off YouTube’s own monetization is basically out the question. The site provides fractions of a cent per view, provided each viewer watches an ad before the video. This can be profitable for lifestyle vloggers, but not for the previously mentioned creators. They simply don’t get the views required to secure a livable income.

Therefore, it’s vital that viewers make it to the end of the video, because that’s when the creator can make their final request. “Thanks for watching,” they all say in so many words, “and consider supporting me on Patreon.”

Danskin mixes game footage, real images, and hand-animated frames

Ian Danskin’s first analytical video for his channel, Innuendo Studios, was a surprise smash hit. The video, “This is Phil Fish,” is a 20-minute long thoughtful look at the perils of internet success and notoriety, viewed through the context of the (in)famous Fez developer Phil Fish. He contrasts the fame of internet celebrities with bands, stand-up comedians, and cat videos. He reckons with the bizarre and seemingly random phenomenon that is digital prominence.  He psychoanalyzes Fish, and then disregards his own analysis as exactly the same kind of armchair psychology as everyone else that pollutes message boards and comments sections.

“[On the internet], fame is not something that you ask for,” Ian says in the video. “Fame is not something you buy into. Fame happens to you.”

The words are oddly fitting, given the video’s meteoric rise.

“The first day, it got 40 views or something.” Danskin says, “and then I went to bed and I woke up and it had 30,000. And then it had 90,000.”

“This is Phil Fish,” originally uploaded in 2014, is almost the most popular video on Danskin’s channel. It now has 960,000 views. Over the next 4 years, Danskin has uploaded 32 videos on games, pop culture, and politics (often inseparably intertwined). His most complete work is a 6-part series called “Why Are You So Angry,” which deals with the inciting events, rhetorical strategies, and fallout from the anonymous masses behind GamerGate.

Danskin makes about $2,700 a month from Patreon, a little more than a quarter of the intake of Game Maker’s Toolkit. But even getting to that level was a wild ride. Last October, Danskin released a video called “The Future of Innuendo Studios,” in which he laid out two potential courses for the channel; in effect, whether he could make enough money to produce content full time or not.

“Freelancing comes in waves … so I’m still inconsistent.” said Danskin last year. “And inconsistency makes people not want to back you on Patreon, which means I have to keep freelancing, which keeps me inconsistent. And we see how we get stuck in a loop.”

In the course of about a week, the money he was making from Patreon tripled.

“My brain kind of shut down,” he says. “You tell yourself, ‘Oh, you gotta’ do this the hard way. You’ve just gotta’ put in the work and your Patreon goes up little by little.’ ... And then you hit a point where you’re like, ‘Maybe if I just asked.’”

“The Future of Innuendo Studios” has a fraction of the views of one of Danskin’s more content-heavy videos, but it did the trick: His channel is now his primary source of income.

“I’ve lived pretty broke most of my adult life,” he says. “This is more money than I’ve ever earned.”

A graph of Danskin's Patreon, and the spike that made it viable as his income

As time goes on, the number of these channels makes it harder for any single one to stand out. Mathew Dyason started Game Score Fanfare a little over a year ago, and has built a healthy backlog of astute, emotional videos on the power of game music. Currently, he earns less than $400 a month from the channel.

“I started the channel basically because I was miserable in my work,” says Dyason. “I quit my job, and Game Score Fanfare was the project that I gave myself.”

His channel has 37,000 subscribers. It’s a respectable number, but many of his videos struggle to reach that number of views. He’s had a couple of breakout hits: A video on the musical styles of underwater levels has several hundred thousand viewers, and another on Undertale’s instrumentation choices is approaching that. Despite those successes, however, Dyason’s general viewership and Patreon levels remain low – where about one percent of their subscribers subsidize Brown and Danskin, Game Score Fanfare’s Patreon supporters are closer to a half of a percent of viewers – nowhere near enough to live off.

Dyason’s channel is also far younger than the other two, and perhaps just needs a little more time to cement its value in viewers’ minds. But maintaining a consistently high level of quality and output means a time commitment that wouldn’t be sustainable with a day job.

“In the early days, it would take upwards of 100 hours to make one of those videos,” he says, laughing. “It’s probably come down from then.”

Dyason's year-old Patreon

The raw time that goes into creating each video is mentioned by everyone; it’s something that separates them from the multiple-uploads-a-day type of YouTubers. “However much work [people] think it is, it’s probably more,” Danskin says, also referencing 100 hours per upload.

Danskin hand-animates dozens of frames for each of his videos. In a recent video on the music of Fisherman’s Horizon in Final Fantasy VIII, Dyason had to capture footage from the appropriate part of the game, which happens to be about 20 hours into the main story. Brown mentioned that in a Game Maker’s Toolkit on the Souls-like genre, he had to record footage from about 70 different games. What sounds like hyperbole is actually an understatement; the video has 86.

Time commitments are far from the only issues on these creator’s minds, however. There’s an insecurity inherent to living off the continuing existence of a website and the whims of its users.

“The internet is a very fickle place,” says Brown. “People can get bored of platforms, platforms can go away.”

Last year, and without warning, Patreon banned a large number of users who provided sexually explicit content to their backers. Given the ongoing legal struggles between publishers, creators, and platforms, some creators worry that game content could be on the chopping block. Nintendo could claim copyright on any footage of their games, or YouTube could stop allowing links to Patreon. 

“You live in fear,” Danskin laughs. “There’s all sorts of things that can shoot you in the foot.”

Well-known personal brands like Game Maker’s Toolkit will likely survive a platform upheaval. Brown has said that he’s now giving talks at universities, and he’s considering writing a book. But for countless smaller channels, being hosted on a well-trafficked site is the only way they’re staying afloat. And even then, no one seems to know how YouTube’s algorithms work. Some videos, like Dyason’s discussion of underwater themes, might spend days on the site’s front page, while others weren’t promoted altogether.

Brown's custom-made way of charting the design of Zelda dungeons

Despite the insecurity, there are reasons why these creators stick with their work. They don’t have bosses telling them what games to make videos on or companies giving them specific audience goalposts to hit.

“[My backers] are just very supporting about whatever I want to do,” says Brown. “No one is making ultimatums.”

Game Maker’s Toolkit and Game Score Fanfare have both focused just as much on smaller indie titles as on AAA releases, despite the content’s theoretically smaller audience. One of Brown’s best videos discusses how to build a great detective game and includes lessons from tiny titles like The Shivah and aging releases like Discworld Noir.

Danskin has pivoted away from games. In the past few months, he’s released several videos in a series called “The Alt-Right Playbook,” a deconstruction of the rhetorical strategies of internet abuse and radicalization. He hasn’t left games completely behind though; in the middle of this series, he took a break to publish a charming piece on the design and themes of The Secret of Monkey Island.

One of the phenomena defining this era of content on the internet is that viewers attach themselves to personalities as much as the work they produce. Millions of people don’t watch PewDiePie because they’re fans of his horror-game-of-the-week; they do it because they’re fans of him. This loyalty allows crowdfunded creators to experiment and branch out, expanding from the subject matter they originally sold themselves on.

The career is a weird dichotomy; creation is done in almost complete solitude, and then released to be enjoyed or critiqued by tens of thousands. Brown calls himself a “socially awkward introvert,” but his livelihood depends on his audience’s attachment. From Danskin’s first video, he’s been wary of success.

“I really, really don't want my audience to be overly invested in me as a person,” he says. But in this genre of content, that’s almost unavoidable. In retrospect, it’s no surprise that his funders tripled after “The Future of Innuendo Studios.” It was a video in which he dropped the veneer of professionalism, let the audience see the man behind the curtain, and gave them the chance to put emotional stakes in his success.

Mark Brown wrote for more established gaming outlets like Pocket Gamer, and Ian Danskin freelanced and animated. Mathew Dyason studied to be a doctor. But with crowdfunded videos, they’ve each found, at least temporarily, where they want to be.

“Even though things should be much more stressful because I'm not making nearly as much money and kind of digging into savings, I'm just so much happier,” Dyason says. “It's made me realize the importance of being happy.”


          Dredging Up Urban History      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The canals of Amsterdam have been winding their way through the city for 800 years. Construction of a new metro line made it necessary to clean them out, and an amazing variety of items have been dredged up from the bottom. Those items have been collected, analyzed, sorted, and put on display in a digital archaeological database.   

The associated website, book and documentary set titled Below the Surface has been years in the making. This project catalogues everything from bits of ceramic, metal and glass to fully intact artifacts. Some finds predate the city’s founding — there are medieval coins and even pieces of sharpened stone from as far back as 4,300 BCE.

“Rivers in cities are unlikely archaeological sites,” explain the organizers and curators of the project. “It is not often that a riverbed, let alone one in the middle of a city, is pumped dry and can be systematically examined. The excavations in the Amstel yielded a deluge of finds.” The resulting website is an amazing interactive museum, allowing visitors to dynamically connect various artifacts by type, material and time period.

If you take a peek inside Demi Lovato's bathing suit drawer, you'll likely get dizzy, because it's filled with a boatload of stripes. The singer has a thing for striped swimwear, whether it's rainbow-colored or covered in a retro cherry print, and she just put her obsession with the classic pattern on display yet again with a new Instagram post that's giving us major swimsuit envy.

Demi shared an album-cover-worthy photo of herself posing atop a boat while wearing rocking the hell out of a striped one-piece. Her strapless swimsuit featured a prominent cutout in the front, right below a flirty knotted detail, and she paired it with aviator-style sunglasses. The 25-year-old captioned the sexy snap, "I rewear the same 5 bathing suits over and over again if you haven't noticed."

That's right - Demi has, in fact, worn this one-piece before, as she posed for a waterfall photo in Bali wearing it back in May. After digging through our jam-packed file on Demi's swimsuit collection, we realized that she also may or may not have worn the same strapless striped number back in January - but backward. If our sleuthing skills are on point, then by golly, someone needs to get this woman an award for her expert swimsuit styling skills. Ahead, shop what we believe to be Demi's exact one-piece bathing suit (which is apparently reversible), along with other similar styles.

Vamos con lo nuevo de los alemanes Circle of Silence una banda que va de mas a menos en los últimos años, presentan su tercer larga duración. Lo suyo es una apuesta por el Power Metal alemán de toda la vida, solo apto para clasicómanos incurables.
Conquer the Throne es una especie de intro instrumental de un minuto y medio de duración que me recordó a los Grave Digger sirve para introducir al ritmo del galope al tema Race to the Sky con el clásico sonido que se busca hoy en día. Bajo amplificado y ritmo agresivo y acelerado a la batería, lo que te hace Sodom hoy en día pero trasladándolo al Metal, el clásico riff atmosférico de los Maiden tampoco falta en este tema.
Esta banda alemana quiere marcar una diferencia con respecto al resto de bandas del Power Metal, quieren sonar mas agresivos que la media y para eso utilizan el Thrash de Sodom, Kreator y Exodus para darle una capa potente a sus temas como en Destroyers of the Earth para después buscar siempre el estribillo melódico y acelerado.
El problema que nos vamos a encontrar en este trabajo y por eso se considera que es una banda que va a menos es que son muy predecibles, te ofrecen lo mismo en todos sus trabajos, pero al césar lo que es del césar, construyen buenos estribillos como el de The Chosen One que es como un cruce entre Manowar y Accept, sencillo a mas no poder pero efectivo.
Emotivo el cruce de guitarras de Lionheart antes de buscar la aceleración esa mezcla entre Power y Progresivo tan típico de los Rage, un estribillo que pretende sonar épico acompañado de un coro que vuelve a recordar a los Manowar.
Hay temas lineales que simplemente tienen una base rítmica acelerada y lo cifran todo a un solo de guitarra que siempre está orientado hacia la Nwobhm y los Iron Maiden, melódicos y acelerados en The Crimson Throne al igual que en Into the Fire, el problema de esta banda es que te escuchas un tema y ya te los escuchaste todos.
Se agradece aún así esas pinceladas agresivas en la base rítmica que hay en temas como A Kingdom Divine, aunque no fueron ni los primeros ni los últimos en incorporar elementos de Thrash al Power melódico los Rage y los Metallium ya lo hicieron muchos años antes.
También es refrescante dentro de tan poca creatividad esos pasajes acústicos acompañados de un buen solo de guitarra como es el caso de Endgame. Para el final lo que tratan de es añadir toda la leña al fuego de la que sean capaces, se quitan el disfraz de banda de Power Metal y se centran tan solo en el Thrash Metal en el tema Possesed by Fire y oye, no se les da nada mal, seguro que valoran editar un álbum solo de Thrash en el futuro, ya sea con el nombre de esta banda o como un proyecto paralelo, en la misma linea el último tema de este trabajo, Wild Eyes.
Pese a la poca creatividad es un trabajo que se disfruta, el Thrash añade fuerza a un Power demasiado visto pero bien ejecutado, se escucha varias veces con alegría.

          Re: Sanders Speaks Out for UVM Medical Center Nurses      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Sean L -- "I think Portland, ME is a closer analog than Boston for Burlington in terms of its general qualities (population, region, major medical center, je ne sais quoi)."

A reasonable comparison (and thanks for digging into the data). But there are other factors, including opportunity. Here are the number of registered nurses in each MSA.

2,370 Burlington
4,520 Portland
43,150 Boston
122,780 NYC

This matters because the competition is based in part on where the jobs are (along with wages). Not surprisingly, there are considerably more annual openings in NYC and Boston (from both growth and replacement) than in Burlington or Portland.

Moreover, most people are in relationships (or at least share housing) so household income is not usually the same as a nurses income so our cost of living musings are of limited value. Obviously, wages can't be based on the personal circumstances of employees, but a 30% higher wage for the nurse in a two-income household is likely to be a significant consideration for a couple looking to relocate (especially since the spouse or partner's income will also be higher in Boston or NYC).

I think the part of the reason everyone wants more reviews, is that you review good music that we like. We can't go to radio or mainstream outlets to find these bands - but you're digging in the ditches to find us the good stuff. I'd suggested this before, so dunno if you just didn't like the idea or didn't see it - but when you post about a horrible song, or something shit (like Nelly), how about putting in an Ear Bleach section at the bottom. You can suggest an album or song for people to listen to, but something that you either won't have time to review, or didn't give you enough inspiration for a full review. All it would need is a one-liner, something like: Today's ear bleach: Erick Willis - Flood Gate Love to hear what you think....

          Soft Fruit, Mold, and Sour Milk - A Lesson on Food Safety      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
At one time or another we've all opened a milk container and noticed that something wasn't quite right or picked up a piece of fruit that was just a little too soft. Reactions, one of my favorite YouTube channels, has a video that answers whether or not you can eat that soft fruit, moldy bread, or drink that sour milk. Reactions is a channel that is all about applying chemistry and biology concepts to common scenarios. To that end, Can I Still Eat This? explains the science of why fruits get soft, why milk gets sour, and how mold grows and spreads through food.

Can I Still Eat This? is a good example of a science video to use in flipped lessons. A couple of my go-to tools for making flipped lessons are EDpuzzle and TES Teach

          Trapped Thai Boys Being Closely Watched for Health Problems      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The 12 youth soccer teammates who were trapped in a flooded Thai cave for more than two weeks are finally out, and now they are being closely monitored in a hospital. The boys — who ranged in age from 11 to 16 — emerged in relatively good shape. Here is a breakdown of the health issues they still face: What condition were the boys in? The first eight boys rescued came in with low body temperatures and were provided with heaters, Thai doctors said Tuesday. One had a low heart rate, and one had a scratch on his right ankle. Doctors suspected two had lung infections — probably pneumonia — based on irregular X-rays. How are they feeling after treatment? Overall they were feeling better, with no fever, and were getting around on their own and smiling. But doctors said the boys were being kept quarantined. Parents were allowed to see them through a glass isolation barrier and talk to them via hospital phones. It could be at least seven days before they can be released from hospital, said Jedsada Chokdumrongsuk, permanent secretary at the Public Health Ministry. Why are they being quarantined? The boys were malnourished and weak, and doctors are probably worried that they could be susceptible to germs spread by family members or other visitors, said Dr. W. Ian Lipkin, a Columbia University infectious diseases expert. But it's also possible they are infection risks to others. Thai doctors have said they don't know what type of unusual illnesses the boys may have picked up in the cave. ``We have never experienced this kind of issue from a deep cave,'' and doctors are running a battery of tests on the boys, Jedsada said. Bats live in caves. They can spread viruses ranging from rabies to Nipah, which can cause pneumonia, seizures and death. The boys told doctors they did not see any bats or other animals, and experts say it's unlikely bats would dwell as deep in a cave as the boys were. Lipkin said more likely risks are tetanus bacteria that could infect a wound, diarrhea-causing bacteria that could have contaminated the cave waters, and inhalable fungal spores that could cause breathing problems — including pneumonia. What lies ahead for the boys? Lipkin said the most likely problems will stem from ``the stress associated with this harrowing experience.'' One of the Thai doctors said the boys were happy but that psychologists would be evaluating them. The guided escape was stressful, and Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha said the boys were given an anti-anxiety medication to help calm their nerves. People who endure such an intense and dangerous event can go on to suffer lasting anxiety, depression and other symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Thailand's Department of Mental Health said hospitals are working with the families to help the boys mentally recover, including by not digging for details about what they endured.

Ricco di proteine, il tonno in scatola è adatto a tutta la famiglia ed è una opzione importante in un regime alimentare ispirato alla dieta mediterranea. Due sono le specie più diffuse, che insieme forniscono il 90% della materia prima all’industria conserviera mondiale: - tonnetto striato (Euthynnus katsuwonus pelamis), in inglese Skipjack. È la specie più pescata (oltre il 50% tra tutti i tonni) - tonno a pinna gialla (Thunnus albacares), in inglese Yellowfin. Oltre il 60% del tonno pescato annualmente proviene dall'Oceano Pacifico.

          How a Real Estate Broker Uses Automation to Reduce Follow-Up Time by 90%      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Our stories explore how Zapier's users solve common problems. From marketers to CEOs, educators to real estate agents, millions use Zapier to automate their most tedious tasks. If you haven't yet, try Zapier for free to see what we're all about.


"Zapier, I learned, should've been my first route, because it makes the communication between the two apps work in a cinch."Jonathon Kerester, managing broker, Realty Investment Advisors

In the real estate market, it's not just location, location, location that matters. Good leads and a quick response are just as valuable to a real estate agent as a prime location. A smart response strategy could mean you're the first real estate agent they hear from, even if they shop around.

With app automator Zapier handling initial follow-ups and lead management, Jonathon Kerester, Realty Investment Advisor's managing broker, found a way to reduce cold calling by 75%—and connects with leads 90% faster.

About Realty Investment Advisors

Realty Investment Advisors (RIA) is a group of real estate brokers and agents across northern Virginia, suburban Maryland, and the D.C. metro area. They collaborate with each other, sharing resources and infrastructure. Each agent or broker has their niche, whether in downtown DC for businesses or in suburbs for families.

For the folks behind RIA, making a fast connection with their clients increases the odds of closing a deal. The connections Jonathon created within Zapier fuel their business and keep him and the team free to focus on their clientele.

SEO-friendly Header

Jonathon's journey to Zapier is common to many. He wanted to connect two apps—email marketing tool MailChimp, and customer support tool Zendesk—so that as leads subscribed to specific newsletters or updated their profile with RIA, a new Zendesk ticket was filled out, showing that change.

He dug into MailChimp and Zendesk, and attempted to create a connection with webhooks. His workflow wasn't supported, which sent Jonathon looking for a better way to connect these apps.

"When I couldn't get MailChimp and Zendesk to communicate after days of trying, my last resort was Zapier," said Jonathon. After digging in, Jonathon wished he had started with Zapier.

In Zapier's dashboard, he connected MailChimp and Zendesk to each other with a few clicks, building multiple Zaps—our word for automated workflows—to send lead information and updates to Zendesk.

From there, he explored, adding Zaps to share new campaigns on social media, create tickets from text messages, and manage new leads in project manager, Trello. Before he knew it, Zapier dramatically cut the time it took the RIA team to follow up on leads by 90%.

Realty Investment Advisors' Tools

Icon: App: Used For:
Zendesk Zendesk Customer support
RingCentral RingCentral SMS & phone calls
MailChimp MailChimp Email marketing
Trello Trello Project management
Slack Slack Team chat

The Workflows

Since Jonathon uses Zendesk as a hub for RIA's leads, his most important Zaps send new MailChimp subscriber information to Zendesk. This was the workflow he originally set out to create and now with Zapier, he has a Zap for each of his MailChimp newsletters so they can be properly categorized in Zendesk.

New subscribers and subscription updates trigger these Zaps, which in turn creates tickets in Zendesk. Since the tickets match up with a customer, Jonathon uses Zendesk almost as a customer relationship manager, building a contact history for each client.

Once the Zaps create tickets, a few more workflows trigger. With the ticket's information, Zapier adds a new Trello card to a specific list for new leads. Within that Trello board, the RIA team can move leads to different lists, depending on their current status—Open, Pending, Closed—and they can add comments and details as needed after showing off properties.

Zapier also sends Slack notifications for new Zendesk tickets, which keeps the entire team in-the-know about new leads, clients, and what type of property they're after. A quick glance at Slack and each agent and broker will know whose lead it is, based on location and property type.

And with RingCentral, new text messages become Zendesk tickets, where they can be associated with existing leads. If the text is from a lead-generating service not connected to Zapier, the Zap still creates a new ticket, adding a link back to the lead source.


"Zapier cuts my cold calling time by 75% and cuts my follow-up on old leads by 90%"Jonathon Kerester, managing broker, Realty Investment Advisors

These Zaps, while simple, take the manual work off Jonathon's plate. That opens the floodgates for productivity: He spends more time showing off properties, meeting clients, writing contracts, and closing transactions—all the things he got into the real estate industry to do.

Want to reduce the time it takes to follow-up with leads? Give Zapier a try for free.

          The 12 Best News Apps for Keeping Up with the Best of the Web      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The internet's a big place, expanding every day—so how do you make sure you're catching up on the best of what the web has to offer?

By having the right apps and tools at your disposal. Whether you're interested in news stories in your area of expertise or every published article from one particular source, news apps to help you sort the good stuff from the rest.

With Facebook and other sites constantly changing their approach to just how far different types of content can travel, you need a reliable way of surfacing the best material. Here are our recommendations for the best news apps (including news aggregators and news readers), so you can stay on top of information overload and never miss out on what's important to you. And, unless otherwise noted below, these apps are all free.

1. Google News

Best for a bird's eye view of breaking stories

Google News screenshot

Freshly revamped in the last couple of months, Google News (iOS, Android, web) is now better at gathering the news than ever before, no matter what your interests.

Of particular note are the Full coverage panels, available on bigger stories—they give you a range of sources on a breaking story, plus relevant tweets and videos, and even a timeline showing you how events have unfolded.

On top of that you can follow the topics and news sources you're most interested in, and give individual stories a thumbs up or a thumbs down, all of which means you'll get more relevant news the next time around.

While it's not the most important consideration, the modern-looking app interface certainly helps as well, directing you quickly to the main meat of a story.

2. Apple News

If you want both humans and an algorithm curating news for you

Apple News screenshot

It's not had as big an overhaul as Google News, but Apple News (integrated into iOS and now macOS) has been given a few upgrades of its own lately, including a new sidebar that pops up on the iPad app.

What's more, Siri now chimes in (if you want it to) to suggest stories based on the apps you've been using and the sites you've been browsing in Safari. The more you use Apple News, the theory goes, the smarter it gets at working out what you want to read about.

Top stories curated by Apple's team of human editors are dropped into the mix as well, giving you a number of options for navigating through the breaking news of the day. You can also browse by category using the headings on the left of the app.

We like the way everything's kept contained in the Apple News itself, which means you're not fighting with 20 open browser tabs to get to the content you want.

3. Flipboard

Perfect for a visual overview of the big stories

Flipboard screenshot

Flipboard (iOS, Android, web) is based around the idea of a digital magazine curated by you—a compendium of stories of interest, pulled from your choice of news sources, blogs, and any other site you can plug into Flipboard (which is pretty much all of them).

You can be as broad or as specific as you like with Flipboard: Point it towards a general topic like technology or productivity, or specify one site in particular that you want to keep up with, and Flipboard mixes everything together seamlessly.

In terms of the interface especially, Flipboard beats out other news-gathering apps, with an intuitive flow that feels natural whether you want to check out the top stories of the day or dig deeper into something that hasn't been as widely covered. Where relevant, podcasts, tweets, and videos can be embedded alongside news stories.

It's not just for you either—you can collect together articles in a Flipboard magazine to share with family or with a team at work, helping other people to focus on what's important in certain sectors and cut out the extraneous noise.

4. Feedly

Get every new blog post or article from your favorite sites in one place

Feedly screenshot

Google Reader may have gone but RSS (Really Simple Syndication) lives on — and Feedly (iOS, Android, web) is the best option out there for gathering news through the long-lasting standard.

RSS suits those who want all the news from a particular blog or website, unfiltered by algorithms or editors: It includes everything a site publishes, so you don't miss anything from your favorite sources. If you can't be online for a day, all the stories are ready and waiting for you when you get back.

There are many reasons why Feedly is our RSS reader of choice, from the ease-of-use of the interface to the wealth of options and features you get: A read-it-later list, comprehensive search and sharing tools, advanced filtering, tools for adding notes and highlights, and so on.

It really does include every feature you could ask for, and can even keep tabs on sites that don't have a traditional RSS feed. Feedly connects with a host of other useful services and apps too, including Zapier.

See Feedly app integrations on Zapier

5. TweetDeck

A supercharged version of Twitter

TweetDeck screenshot

TweetDeck (web or macOS) is often described as Twitter for the pros, and this third-party client is so good that Twitter itself bought it in 2011. TweetDeck offers a host of useful features, including real-time updating and advanced searches and filters.

The TweetDeck interface is based around columns, and you can have as many of them as you want really—for your main timeline, for lists, for notifications, for specific searches you've run, and so on. You might set up one of your columns to find hits for the hashtag #zapier, for instance, and watch the tweets roll in.

No matter what you want to keep tabs on, whether it's a trending news story or a particular account handle—or dozens of them at once—TweetDeck can help. All of your columns can have certain words matched or excluded, and they can be limited to specific users (like your team's accounts) if necessary.

The only downside is it's only fully supported on the web (Twitter shut down the Windows version and the Mac version hasn't been significantly updated in a few years). But if the news you need is out there on Twitter, TweetDeck will deliver it for you.

6. Nuzzel

If you want to surface the most shared stories from your network

Nuzzel

What Nuzzel ([iOS] (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nuzzel-news-for-professionals/id692285770?mt=8), Android, web) does best is cut through the noise that might be overwhelming your Twitter or LinkedIn feed to bring you the most popular stories being shared by most of your contacts on those networks.

You choose whom to follow on those platforms, and so—the theory goes—the stuff they share is the stuff you want to read about. Nuzzel makes sure the big stories of the day in your feeds get surfaced quickly, so you can let everything else drift by. In practice, it works really well.

If just seeing the stories popular with your closest contacts feels too restrictive, then Nuzzel lets you broaden this out by looking at stories being shared by "friends of friends," and the stories trending more generally across LinkedIn and Twitter. For those of you who need a concise summary of the news of the day, Nuzzel is handy.

The app has got a couple of other useful features, too: When a story starts to be shared by a lot of your friends, you can get breaking news alerts about it on mobile. Plus, Nuzzel lets you easily create your own email newsletters, by curating your pick of the top stories and enabling you to add as much or as little additional commentary as you like.

7. Pocket

Get a deeper dive behind trending articles

Pocket screenshot

Pocket (iOS, Android, web) is primarily a read-it-later service, somewhere you can stash articles and videos you discover on the web until you're ready to get around to reading or watching them. However, it can help you find the best reads too.

Click the "Recommended" or "Explore" links on the web or the "Discover" tab on mobile to bring up a list of articles that are trending on the Pocket network. These are the web posts that are gaining a lot of traction with audiences (Pocket has over 10 million monthly active users). These picks are partly determined by the articles you've already saved in your Pocket account, so they should match your interests.

Of course, you can save any of these recommendations to Pocket as well and organize them with tags or stick them in the Favorites category for easy access. No matter what device you're on, you can find something good to read with Pocket.

8. Reddit

Tap into the power of the crowd

Reddit screenshot

You might think of Reddit (iOS, Android, web) as something vaguely analogous to the Wild West of the Web, and you'd be right. However, if you know how to use the site and apps properly, it's one of the top spots for finding the most essential online content with just a few clicks or taps.

You can start on the self-styled "front page of the internet"—the Reddit homepage—or dive deeper into the subreddits that match your interests, whether that's entrepreneurship, technology, creativity, productivity, or anything else. If there's a topic you're interested in, then chances are there's a subreddit you can subscribe to.

Thanks to the busy Reddit community, it's like having an army of users searching out the best content on the web for you. Add in the new redesign on top, which makes posts cleaner and easier to read, and it's well worth including in your news-gathering tools.

9. Digg

Find stories you probably won't find anywhere else

Digg screenshot

Like Reddit, Digg (iOS, Android, web) aims to bring the best of what's on the web to you, via the power of proprietary algorithms and some good old-fashioned human curation. Its tagline is "what the internet is talking about right now," which sums it up pretty well.

The front page presents you with an elegantly laid out summary of the most important stories of the day, and you'll find these stories tend to shy away from breaking news to focus more on long reads and more thoughtful content. It's a useful way of finding excellent writing outside of the daily news cycle.

Various category sections let you go further into Digg's news curation service, and at any point you're able to save articles for later reading or share them out more widely. While it doesn't have much in the way of personalization, it can be your quick stop-off point for articles and videos of interest.

10. Mix

For discovering great reads from top content publishers

Mix screenshot

Mix (web) recently absorbed StumbleUpon, one of the oldest discovery tools on the web, and it's now looking to carry on the same tradition of helping you find the most notable content on the web.

At times, the process of finding articles almost feels serendipitous. You pick topics you're interested in, such as life hacks, technology, culture, travel, or space, and let Mix do the rest—It serves up super-relevant stories across all of the categories you've selected. On top of that, you can point Mix towards specific sites you enjoy reading.

The news sources that Mix plunders are some of the best and most respectable sites on the web, from National Geographic to Mental Floss, so you're guaranteed to finding something interesting and informative to read every time you load up the site. Articles can be saved to customizable collections inside your account too, for safe keeping.

11. Zig

For when you want your news easily digestible

Zig screenshot

Another news-collecting app worthy of your time is Zig (iOS, Android, web). The idea is to quiz you on your interests, from celebrities to news topics, and then serve up a personalized platter of news that looks good and is a breeze to get through.

In other words, Zig is out to remove as much digital clutter from your life as possible, a welcome aim in our times of information overload and a never-ending cascade of news. Part of the app's magic is the way it takes detailed stories or topics and summarizes them in a visual, bite-sized way that won't slow you down unnecessarily.

Emphasis is given to photos and videos over text, so this isn't the place to find long reads or detailed industry analysis, but the Zig apps work well as automated entry points for the news of the day—and they can save you a lot of time clicking and scrolling on the web.

12. News360

Best for getting the news tailored to you

News360 screenshot

Finally, there's News360 (iOS, Android, web), a news aggregator app that's been around since 2010 and does a fantastic job of pulling together news from multiple sources, based around your interests and preferences.

You'll find News360 simple to connect to and simple to operate, with the option of Facebook and Twitter integration available to further refine the type of stories you see (based on your social media sharing activity). If you then like or dislike articles as they appear, the News360 algorithms get refined even further.

Everything is wrapped up in a visually pleasing, card-based interface that works really well for at-a-glance news consumption, as well as for pulling in the key stories you need to know about from the mass of content that's out there online. One of News360's best features is it shows, for each topic, how many sites are referencing it. For example, you can see at a glance that Sports Illustrated and 413 other sites reported on the 2018 NBA Draft. Unlike your RSS reader or Twitter stream, you won't see multiple versions of the same story, which means you can get the news you want without too much clutter.


The avalanche of news that breaks each and every day can be daunting, but with the right apps at hand, it doesn't have to be—you can get the news you want, in the way you want it, and keep up to speed with what's happening in the world.

          Il tesoro maledetto sotto il tempio di Padmanabhaswamy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Nell'architettura sacra indiana, il gopuram è una porta monumentale riccamente ornata, da uno sviluppo marcatamente verticale e utilizzata per contrassegnare la presenza di un idolo, raffigurazione materiale della divinità. Dalla forma generalmente rastremata o a gradoni, principalmente per ragioni di stabilità, simili strutture sono spesso tra le più alte delle antiche metropoli del subcontinente, facilmente visibili oltre le abitazioni o gli edifici pubblici circostanti. Nella città di Thiruvananthapuram, capitale e principale centro abitato dello stato del Kerala, sorge un gopuram meta d'innumerevoli pellegrinaggi, particolarmente famoso perché possiede le "dieci caratteristiche" di un grande tempio: antichità, presenza di sacre scritture, importanza storica, origine in una foresta, vicinanza all'oceano, posizione elevata, connessioni alla dinastia reale, menzione negli antichi testi, magnificenza architettonica e grandiosità delle celebrazioni. Talmente importante, nel suo ruolo primario tra i 108 templi dedicati a Vishnu (Divya Desam) che la visita da parte dei turisti è effettivamente scoraggiata, e l'ingresso dei non induisti all'interno del complesso formalmente vietato, dietro sorveglianza dei bramini dediti alla non-violenza, ma cionondimeno attenti e segretamente armati con delle pistole. Questo perché, oltre ad essere un luogo di culto, il grande tempio dal nome di Padmanabhaswamy è anche una proprietà della famiglia reale di Travancore, secondo una vecchia leggenda impiegata come cassaforte per indicibili tesori. Leggenda che avrebbe trovato conferma nel 2011, quando un decreto governativo venne impiegato per autorizzare un gruppo di archeologi di stato ad entrare nelle sale sottostanti, al fine di realizzare un inventario degli antichi reperti segretamente custoditi all'interno. Torce elettriche alla mano, piedi di porco, fibre ottiche e vanghe alla mano, i profanatori si sono quindi trovati dinnanzi a una serie di sei porte, tutte rigorosamente prive di cardini, serrature o maniglie di alcun tipo. Qui la storia si fa confusa, poiché sembra che di comune accordo, costoro abbiano lavorato per svariati giorni riuscendo ad aprire soltanto le cinque identificate dalla A alla F, saltando la B: all'interno delle stesse, oro e argento in quantità incommensurabile, ornamenti sacri, intere noci di cocco ricoperte di gemme e alcune sculture raffiguranti elefanti, il cui valore unitario sarebbe stato misurabile in svariati milioni di dollari ciascuna. Per quanto riguardava l'ultima porta, tuttavia, gli uomini si fermarono, come impietriti da un terribile presentimento. A fargli la guardia, infatti, c'erano due sculture di enormi cobra eretti in maniera perpendicolare al suolo, i cappucci aperti in maniera minacciosa, gli occhi tanti vividi che sembravano incontrare direttamente lo sguardo degli uomini sottostanti. L'aria parve inoltre farsi più pesante ed i suoni assunsero un'innaturale tonalità ovattata. "State attenti, è l'effetto della Naga Bandham" esclamò uno tra loro, che aveva studiato le antiche scritture del dharma, riconoscendo i chiari segni di una stregoneria finalizzata a proteggere..

          Blacklick woman indicted for allegedly stealing from Developmental Disabilities board      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A 47-year-old Blacklick woman has been indicted on three counts associated with the theft of thousands of dollars from the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities.

Tiffany Diggs was charged with one count of Theft in Office (F-3), one count of Tampering with Government Records (F-3), and one count of Filing Incomplete, False and Fraudulent Returns (F-5).

According to a press release, Diggs transferred more than $26,000 into her personal account during a 10-month span.

Diggs was employed as a Human Capital Management Analyst (HCMA), according to a press release from the Franklin County Prosecutor Rob O'Brien. In her capacity as a HCMA, Diggs was responsible for payroll and employee benefits for all Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (ODODD) employees. Her main function was to oversee the payroll administration by ensuring all employees or their respective timekeepers properly recorded their hours worked, leave used and overtime.

Diggs had access to add or delete information from specific employee timecards, tax information, and direct deposit accounts.

“Between April 29, 2017 to February 16, 2018, for approximately 17 pay periods, Diggs would wait until after the bi-weekly ODODD audits were run, and would then go into a specific employee’s payroll account and add additional hours or a dollar amount to that employee’s time sheet. Diggs would then have the additional dollar amount direct deposited into her own personal account," O’Brien said.

"Diggs also failed to claim the additional income on her 2017 tax return,” O’Brien said.

Why? WHY am I doing this coaching thing? I’ve been wrestling with this question for awhile. I’m digging deep to discover the real meaning behind it and I finally found it. 🎉 By nature, I’m a people person (big surprise, right?! haha). I LOVE meeting new people, listening to their story, struggles and success - digging deep, getting past the surface level chitchat. This part-time business lets me do just that. 😍 Just yesterday I had a “kickoff call” with a new client (anonymous until we share her amazing success story in a couple weeks). We talked about her goals 💪, how to tweak her nutrition for better results 🌱, a workout that she’s excited to start on Monday 🎉 and I even found out that she’s a planner, just like me! This. THIS!!!!!!! This is why I do this!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ Yes my part-time business is growing and I’m always looking for new friends to join me for their own part-time hustle too but this intangible fulfillment rises above all that - it’s means more than money, achievement and success. 😁 Why? Because it’s ❤️ deep. Need it? Of course you do, everyone has that core desire. 😍 👉 Stay-at-home moms: could you use more community & a renewed purpose? 👉 Friends w/ crazy hours: could you use a relaxed job & look forward to free time? 👉 Empathetic friends: if you could have another income knowing your integrity wasn’t justified, would that benefit you? 👉 Fit friends: would getting rewarded for simply living your active lifestyle benefit you? 👉 Struggling moms: if you know how to work hard and got rewarded for your own efforts, would another paycheck benefit you? Introverts/extroverts, fit, overweight, happy, struggling people can do this. 😎 If you're ready to work hard and develop a side hustle in the free moments of your day, trust me - the community & fulfillment will be even better than the growing paycheck. Let's me show you how. ❤️ .. .. #reallife #momlife #goals #youdecideyourlife #makethelifeyouwant #mompreneur #nevergiveup #healthylifestyle #believe #youmatter #loveyourself #busymoms #busymomsgetfit #busymomsstayfit #running #runn #runner #fitgirls #fitgirlsguide #fitgirlsinspire #momsofboys

          Blog Post: Strategic Mindset for a Successful ERP implementation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Any leader considering implementing an ERP solution is likely very familiar with the benefits, and possibly heard the success stories shared by those from other companies: Automated Tasks and Increased Productivity Streamlined Processes and Efficiency Created more Accurate Forecasts Fostered Interdepartmental Collaboration and the list goes on.  Identical to implementing any new software, one of the biggest hesitations for those considering an ERP solution is the disruption caused during the planning and implementation stage.  The reality is, like almost any business improvement, it’s impossible to make a change without investing some time and effort into its success. Implementing an ERP solution is like remodeling your home while you’re still living in it.  If you don’t tell the designer what you want, don’t work with the contractor throughout the process to provide input and address small changes along the way, and don’t test the new appliances or smart devices until long after everyone has packed up and left, the end result is likely to be a disappointment.   Although ERP solutions can produce some of the largest benefits, they can also be more painful than other software projects.  With many moving pieces and the risk of impacting current and future operations, ERP implementations are often complex and robustly managed. If not managed correctly, parts or all of the implementation can fail.  According to a recent study by analytics firm Gartner, almost 75% of all ERP projects will fail in some way. There are several reasons why: Ambiguous Requirements Limited Availability of Key Stakeholders Miscalculation of Budget and Timeline Team Adaptability and Training Inadequate Testing Often, my team and I are invited in by companies going through a failing ERP implementation .  One or more factors mentioned above are often the reason for that.  Strong project management and sound functional and technical expertise are critical, but above all having the right mindset is the key.  There are two important mindsets to achieve success. Mindset 1: The Journey is as Important as the Goal Let’s say you are planning to take a vacation to an amazing destination like Hawaii.  You most likely will pack for the nice warm weather, bring sunscreen, a bathing suit, etc.  If you are a diligent planner, you will also plan for the journey and include snacks or something to occupy your time in the transit lounge. What if the flight is significantly delayed due to bad weather?  If you packed an extra pair of clothes in the carry-on, or included battery backups, you’d be much better off than most of the other passengers. If you thought even further ahead and secured travel insurance, that would put you in an even better position. An ERP implementation is obviously much more complex than planning a vacation.  Moreover, the stakes are much higher.  Given this, why do we focus almost exclusively on the destination (the end goal) and not prepare for the journey itself?  With so many variables and even the most well-thought-out procedures, we know that things will not go exactly as we planned and, like bad weather or mechanical issues impacting a flight, we should be prepared to address any issues that arise. Recognizing this, we can choose to have a mindset to focus more and enjoy the journey. In over 20 years of experience, I have seen that ERP implementation teams (including ERP partners) focus too much on the end goal and not enough on the journey.  With some success criteria such as a budget, defined timeline, KPI’s, specifics of what needs to be built or implemented, etc., the journey begins and project plans and milestones are laid down.  How many times does the original goal – due to situation, budget, timeline, scope, resources, or something else, change during a project execution? In my experience the goal invariably changes.  Due to various reasons, we deviate from the original goal. And that is where things start going south.  Out of necessity, you must communicate the change and re-plan the project.  Then the project change/risk-related problems start. This is an issue only because everyone was focused on the goal and not the journey. How do we become better prepared? Like Murphy’s Law, assume that the ERP implementation will not be a walk in the park. When things go south, look for opportunity. Live in the present. This will help drive innovation.  Under the stress of unrealistic deadlines, I have not seen many innovative solutions created, just “good enough” solutions that will meet the deadline and not necessarily far surpass expectations. Always have your emergency kit ready. You have this because you planned for it! This mindset keeps you in the present and empowers you to look into or handle the situation much better than chasing an arbitrary deadline.  You start to LIVE in the present and help create a business tool that’s a true powerhouse, versus just implementing some software. A few years ago, I was involved in a large ERP implementation using Microsoft Dynamics AX , now Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations , for a leading Ohio-based manufacturer.  We started with clearly defined goals and a thorough plan.  In the middle of the project, the company acquired 2 additional production units.  Due to that and other situations, we had to delay the manufacturing module implementation.  The plan had to be changed, which frustrated a lot of people. End users were understandably not happy and both company leadership and the implementation team had to have several hard conversations.  Motivation as a whole was down. Fast forward a short time later, and the entire implementation was successfully completed.  Users were trained and stakeholders throughout the company were happy with the tremendous results.  Along with the regular implementation, the latest technology (IoT/RFID, cloud) was also included to further improve operations.  We didn’t initially plan for the technology upgrade, but the delay in manufacturing and timeline allowed the additional add-on, which was not mature enough to include initially.  The delay turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Incidences like this can happen occasionally, and it is critical to set that expectation upfront with your ERP team. Mind Set 2: Always think ways to empower your users ERP systems are designed as bottom - up system, thereby bringing transparency to the organization. That means if all the transactions, such as purchase orders, sales orders, production orders, invoices, etc. are entered correctly, then your top numbers will match, and every report will be accurate.  ERP systems will not work properly, nor bring the greatest benefit and improvements, if employees are not motivated to use the new system or, sometimes worse, not trained appropriately to use it.  This is why it’s critical that your ERP implementation team go above and beyond to ensure all users are empowered not only once the implementation is complete, but also during the implementation journey. During a recent Microsoft Dynamics NAV implementation that was completed for a leading supply chain and manufacturing company, it became apparent that the sales team – a key component of the system working – was not engaged.  After getting commitment from sales leadership, the key users were still not attending meetings and training sessions.  By digging in further, we found that the sales department was somewhat short-staffed and, as the department had a high turnover rate and difficulty retaining the sales team members, most employees of the department were relatively new, already overwhelmed, and on the road quite frequently (therefore not even in the office to take training). The first thought of the implementation team wasn’t how it could get the sales staff to take training, but how the ERP could be adjusted to make the sales job easier and more efficient.  Building per requirements is straight-forward, but building for true user experience – without significantly increasing budget or timeline – is an artform.  After a few brainstorming sessions, the implementation team was able to develop a mobile application that integrated with the Microsoft Dynamics NAV ERP system .  The application could create sales quotes, orders, memos, confirm orders, check order status and customer balances, and was extremely user friendly - and required almost no training!  In addition, the application was built so that it could work without an internet connection, since the sales team often traveled within their territory and often had poor internet coverage, or sometimes none at all.  The sales team was thrilled, as was the sales and company leadership. It is critical for the ERP implementation team to assess how they can make their users’ lives easier not just as a part of the implementation, but also during the journey itself. Pain is Temporary, Profits are Permanent Remember when considering an ERP solution, or starting an implementation, that adopting these 2 mindsets will help you, your company, and your users as well.  The more deliberate the journey, the more exciting the destination is.

          TNT Finds New 'Snowpiercer' Director: Doctor Who's James Hawes w/ Jennifer Connelly + Daveed Diggs.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   




-The shows behind the scenes drama is really horrible. The original director Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles/Upcoming Avatar 2 + Terminator films) left the project after being ousted from TNT.
-Scott Derrickson (Doctor Strange) originally directed the pilot which was greenlit to a full 10 episode series order.
-Orphan Black creator Graeme Manson is now the new show runner for the show which is set to be filmed August-December in Vancouver, Canada with Alison Wright (The Americans), Daveed Diggs, Jennifer Connelly, Annalise Basso, Susan Park, Mickey Sumner, Hiro Kanagawa, Lena Hall, & etc.





-“They consulted me on everything from how to find queer writers without asking ppl what their sexual orientation is to who the best MENA actors are,” she wrote on Twitter. “And if their final ensemble cast was inclusive enough and on top of it they insisted I direct a couple of episodes. You know how many guys there are in Hollywood who believe inclusion is this important and who know that you shouldn’t just take advantage of a WOC consulting you without hiring her? I know two. Both aren’t doing ‘Snowpiercer’ anymore. Hollywood sucks.” (Lexi Alexander who was set to direct some episodes of the show before the whole switch around.)

-For some reason, she deleted her tweets but these are all the tweets about the issue:

"I want to cry about this, seriously. Not only was @Josh_Friedman’s script unbelievably good and Scott ended up choosing to direct it because of that over the many movies he was offered…here are two white men who were so set on making this an inclusive show, they consulted me on everything from how to find queer writers without asking ppl what their sexual orientation is to who the best MENA actors are and if their final ensemble cast was inclusive enough and on top of it they insisted I direct a couple of episodes. Someone please leak @scottderrickson’s pilot. I was never allowed to see it, but those who had seen it raved like mad about it. It’s a shame the audience doesn’t get to see it."











-Josh's original script was said to be highly inclusive/diverse of all races & ethnicities.
-Got outed for not picking up the plot & speeding up the plot & narrative.
-Director Lexi Alexander (Punisher War Zone) was set to direct before the show runner switch. Both Lexi and Scott side with Josh's original vision, & Lexi stated that Josh tried very hard to be inclusive with cast/crew behind and in front of the screen.

-"If you're asked to rewrite someone or take over their show it seems like good sense and good karma to reach out to that person first and a) find out what the circumstances of their departure are and b) thank them for doing the work you'll be profiting from."
-"You should buy that person a nice meal or a bottle of alcohol if they're up for it. Your money was earmarked for them at one time. And more than likely, what may be a good job for you was a passion project for them," he added. "Put another way: if you were to take over a show I'd originated and worked on for two years and didn't reach out to me before taking the job you're either an idiot, a coward, or a vichy motherfucker."



-Jennifer will play the voice (Melanie) of the Snowpiercer train & her character is from the upper class but curious about the lower/working class part of the train.


--“It’s not following the movie exactly,” Diggs told reporters after the panel. “There are a lot of parallels and it definitely exists in the same world. I play Layton, he lives in the tail so he’s one of the poor people.”


-Was looking forward to their reunion.


Same here, Alison!

          Trip Report - Montreal 7/3-7/8      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
hi folks, I did a lot of scanning of new and old posts on this board before my trip, so I thought I'd report back on all of our good eats and drinks during our trip. Tuesday: Dieu du Ciel - after arriving to our apartment on 7/3 and finding that the windows were closed and the a/c unit off, we immediately dropped our bags and ran to a cooler locale. We only had beers here, but they were delightful. I stayed towards the session IPAs, but would be interested to go back for the malt-ier stuff in cooler temps. Wednesday: Arts Cafe - Mile End - cute cafe, great coffee, and good breakfast bites Bar George - we bailed on the apt for one night and checked into a hotel in the Golden Square Mile area. Found this lovely hotel bar with an impeccable lunch menu including a blood pudding raviolo! Cocktails are definitely their strength, wine by the glass list was just okay. Bouillon Bilk - this was our one planned reservation and it did not disappoint (thanks, CH!). We went with the 8-course tasting menu and wine pairing. The wine pairing was so well done, really spectacular selections that tended toward the funky, natural stuff that I am really digging these days. Food highlight for me was a veal tartare with a fried oyster on top, but every course was well conceived and executed. Thursday: Larry's - Saint-Laurent Blvd- Everywhere was hot. Streets, restaurants, our apartment (but better than it had been Tuesday night, so we went back). We sweated through lunch at two seats at the counter by the kitchen at Larry's. Awesome wine by the glass selection. We had a few fresh veg dishes (cucumber salad, heirloom tomatoes), a liver toast, and a fish tartare - all wonderful. Alma - Outremont - a rec from the somm at Bouillon Bilk, we made a last minute res here for "bar seats" which were really just facing the kitchen. These are the folks from Farine and a local wine importer. Not shocking, the wines by the glass and bottle were phenomenal. Lots of Catalonian wines I'd never had - funky, unfiltered, natural stuff. Food was awesome as well, capped off by two pasta dishes, including a black pasta w/tomatoes and clams, and a cacio e pepe. Friday: What a great weather day, and what a relief with the cooler temps! St. Viateur Bagels - We did our first bagel purchase at St. Viateur and sat outside to enjoy them before heading out to some sightseeing Marché Des Éclusiers - had a light lunch outside at this pop up market/restaurant. The millieu was nicer than the food, but it was nice to sit outside. Jean Talon Market - it was a quiet afternoon here, which allowed us to wander without being in the way. I enjoyed shopping for Quebecois cheese at Fromagerie Hamel, they guided me to some real winners. Buvette Chez Simone - in our neighborhood, another rec from Bouillon Bilk's somm and it was fantastic. After eating all the cheese from Hamel, we stuck with some veg and meat dishes for our artfully arranged platter. The foie mousse was great, but my favorite dish was a fried mushroom assortment with a poached egg on top. Wines by the glass were really good and we got great guidance from the bartenders. I appreciate the opportunity to taste (which we found at a lot of wine bars, nice touch!). Saturday: Fairmount Bagels - Another glorious morning filled with a warm sesame bagel consumed outside. I'm not sure there was a clear winner, but in the end, I think I preferred St. Viateur for a slightly toastier flavor Schwartz's - Very touristy, but I thoroughly enjoyed my sandwich and fries. We were there around 11 and sat right away. Le Vin Papillon - Went right as they opened, but could have come a couple hours later and still gotten a seat pretty easily (inside, as the patio was the big draw). We went for the wine, but were blown away by the food. The celery root, sliced thinly and drizzled in chicken fat, was the surprise winner for me, but I was also really impressed with dessert (which takes a lot for me). We had a sour cherry brioche with a goat milk sort-of frosting. Basically a frosted cinnamon bun, but instead of cinnamon, sour cherries, and goat milk frosting instead of cream cheese. Larry's - as we'd done a really early meal at LVP, we did a later snack at Larry's - getting both the beef tartare and the fish tartare. I adore tartare and continued to be impressed with Larry's. Also, it was considerably cooler in temperature this time around! Sunday: St. Viateur + Hamel + our Terrace - we spent our final hour in Montreal on our apartment terrace, eating the rest of our Hamel cheeses, another round of bagels from St. Viateur, and the cold brew coffee we'd finally found at an organic market a couple blocks away. We vowed to return to Montreal... maybe just in the fall... A few non-food/drink highlights - tour (in English!) of Habitat 67; Balleciaga exhibit at the McCord; admiring the murals along St. Laurent; the silly, but fun Barbie Expo in the underground mall downtown; catching a World Cup game at the Pub Burgundy Lion

De Belgische droom op een WK-zege ligt aan diggelen.

While we were on the beach at Gela, waiting for a boat to take us out to the Monrovia, I saw the most stupid thing I have ever seen soldiers do. There were about three hundred 500-pound bombs and seven tons of 20 mm. high-explosive shell piled on the sand, and, in between the bombs and boxes of ammunition, these soldiers were digging foxholes. I told them that if they wanted to save the Graves Registration burials that was a fine thing to do, but otherwise, they’d better dig somewhere else.
          Thread: The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game:: General:: How much have you actually played? [Poll]      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

by SJacobsen159

I had it dawn on me as I'm digging into this game pretty hardcore over the past 2 months (35 plays). There's a lot of stuff! It seems like it will frequently take 3-8+ tries to beat a scenario. After that, you can retry scenarios with different approaches- new heroes, different spheres, true solo, two-handed solo, multiplayer, different tricks, an updated card pool, improving your score, etc. Then there is nightmare mode. All of this easily translates into hundreds (or thousands) of plays!

With the release of the new deluxe box The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game – The Wilds of Rhovanion, we have 99 officially released scenarios (by my count, not counting nightmare mode), with more just around the bend. There are also some reputable fan-made scenarios.

With all this content out, how much of it have you actually played?

[poll=386505]

Other more open ended questions/discussions:
-How many tries on average does it take you to beat a scenario on normal mode?

-What gets you to replay scenarios that you have already beaten?

          6 Tips for Tackling a Phone or Video Interview      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Whether you’re looking to get an internship or a job, it’s inevitable that you will be faced with a phone or video interview at some point. On one hand, these types of interviews are great because you can do them anywhere and they give you the freedom to interview without having to make the trip in person. On the other hand, they aren’t exactly like a normal interview, which means they come with their own set of rules and formalities. To give you all the information you need to rock your next phone or video interview we talked to Maddie Schmitz, publicity assistant at Penguin Random House and former Her Conference speaker. So take notes, because with these tips you’ll be ready to tackle any interview.

1. Know your interviewer

This is a universal tip, whether you have an in-person or digital interview. Not only should you research the company, but also the person conducting the interview. We’re not talking CSI background checks, but a little digging on LinkedIn to see some of his or her past experience can’t hurt. Understanding who you’re talking to can help guide the way you answer questions.

“Check to see if there are any alumni from your university who currently work at the company, and ask if you can ask them about company culture and what their favorite things are about working at there,” suggests Schmitz. “I work in book publishing, for example, and during a phone interview an interviewer asked which of that particular publishing house's books I had read recently—luckily I had written down a list of recently published books and kept the notes close by during my interview, so I could answer!”

Being over-prepared is always better than under-prepared, so taking notes and keeping them close by is a trick you should use during phone interviews. For video interviews, it’s still great to keep notes, just remember to focus on the interviewer. It’s completely acceptable to take notes during an interview, so writing your prepared notes on the same paper you’ll take notes on is a good trick to make it look less obvious.

2. Know your greeting

For an in-person interview this seems fairly obvious, but for a phone interview especially, this is a super important step. It sets up the tone of your entire interview, so answering confidently it key. One huge mistake collegiettes make is answering the phone with “hi” or “hello.” This response is confusing because your interviewer doesn’t know if you’re the right person, leaving him or her having to ask who is on the other end of the line. This interaction puts you off to an awkward start and can leave you feeling shaky for the rest of the interview.

To avoid this uncomfortable situation, Schmitz suggests, “When you first greet an interviewer, a good start is ‘Hi [name], this is [your name]. Thanks so much for taking the time to speak with me today!’ By saying the interviewer's name out loud at the beginning of the call, he or she will likely feel instantly more connected to you (and it'll help you remember his or her name for the rest of the interview)!” If you’re not sure how to address the interviewer, check out how they sign off on their emails to you (assuming you set up the interview via email). If they sign off with just their first name it’s fine to refer to them that way. If you don’t have any emails to reference and you’re still not sure, it’s always appropriate to refer to him or her as “Ms. or Mr.” Once you’ve set up your interview to succeed, you’ll be much more confident in answering questions and sound prepared and focused.

3.  Know what to do if you need to call the interviewer

This is a rare circumstance, but on occasion the interviewer will ask you to call them. If this is the case, you might be faced with the impossible question of whether you should be early, on time or a little late in calling. But don’t get too caught up in the logistics of it all; your best bet is to call on time. If thy don’t pick up for some reason—you never know, it could happen—then leave a brief message with your name, reason for calling and number.

“[Calling on time] shows that you are taking the interview seriously and are respectful of the interviewer's time,” says Schmitz. Being prompt is always the best way to go because it shows that you’re serious about the position and reflects your punctuality in the workplace.

4. Be prepared for multiple interviewers

Sometimes you’re faced with a panel of interviewers. This is so multiple employees can get to know you and determine how well you would fit into the company. Oftentimes they are also people you would be working with if you secured the position. But whether you’re face-to-face or over the phone, panel interviews are daunting. It can easily feel like you’re being ganged up on, so it’s important to understand how to attack a panel interview.

Schmitz says the preparation for this interview is similar to a normal interview. “[T]ake a peek at each person's LinkedIn page to figure out if they are the same level professionally, and try to get an understanding of how each person relates to the others within the company,” says Schmitz. “Do they all work closely on the same team? Does one work just with interns/new hires? During the interview, try to engage with each person on the call equally and call people by name to avoid any confusion.”

This last tip is important because things can get a little confusing over the phone—you remember three-way calling with your friends in fifth grade. For phone interviews, you should also jot each interviewer’s name and position to help keep things straight.

5. Know the types of questions they might ask

Obviously it’s impossible to know what questions your interviewer will ask you because there are countless choices, but for these types of interviews you can usually predict the type of questions you will be asked.

“Phone and video interviews are generally first round, screening interviews,” says Schmitz. “The interviewer (often an HR person) is looking to see how you think and approach problems, how you express yourself, and what your overall personality is like, in addition to making sure that you have the requisite experience and skills that are listed in the job description.” Because these interviews are typically preliminary, it’s best to expect that you will be asked about items on your resume and background information.

Schmitz also says, “Some phone interviews are more casual, and interviewers will ask questions like, ‘Where do you usually get your news?’ or, ‘What kind of books do you like to read?’ These questions help the interviewer understand more about your general interests and determine whether you'll be a good fit for the culture of the company.” Knowledge about what the company does will help you in these situations, which is why your preparation will pay off in the interview and is extremely important.  You can even check out popular sites like Glassdoor to see what the job interview process is like, and maybe some frequently asked interview questions. The more information you gather, the better.

6. Find a good spot and come prepared

Just because you aren’t going to an office doesn’t mean you can just chill in your living room or at a Starbucks for a phone or video interview. You want to limit all distractions, so find a quiet spot and get there half an hour before your interview to ensure everything works correctly and that you can go over your notes. For a video interview, you want to make sure the wall behind you is plain—it doesn’t look super professional to have old Twilight posters behind you. This way, your interviewer will be focused on you—not all the distracting things around you. In addition, remember to dress for a video interview like you would dress for an in-person interview. The last thing you want to do is accidently stand up while you’re wearing pajama bottoms. You can also dress professionally for a phone interview, but the most important thing is to feel comfortable. Wear something that makes you feel confident and ready to go.

Lastly, Schmitz says, “Keep a glass of water at hand! And smile while you're talking—that energy translates across the phone.” Also be sure to find a space with reliable WiFi. If your apartment’s WiFi isn’t great, reserving a private study room at the library is a good alternative. Give yourself some time to get comfortable and relaxed; with all the prep work you’ve done, the only thing left is to nail your interview!

Interviews can be stressful, and whether they’re on the phone or through video, if you’re prepared mentally and physically you’ll be ready to go. So keep these tips in mind and be ready to start accepting job offers!

Ten decimal places of π are sufficient to give the circumference
of the earth to a fraction of an inch, 
and thirty decimal places would give the circumference of the visible universe
to a quantity imperceptible to the most powerful microscope.
~Simon Newcomb  

The 192nd day of the year; 192 is the smallest number that together with its double and triple contain every digit from 1-9 exactly once. There are three other values of n so that n, 2n, and 3n contain each non-zero digit exactly once. Can you find them?

192 is the sum of ten consecutive primes (5 + 7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 + 31 + 37)

192 is the number of edges on a 6th dimension hypercube, it is the last day of the year which is the number of edges of a hypercube.

Diophantus probably knew, and Lagrange proved, that every positive integer can be written as a sum of four perfect squares. Jacobi] proved the stronger result that the number of ways in which a positive integer can be so written equals 8 times the sum of its divisors that are not multiples of 4. Use this theorem to prove that there are 192 ways to express 14 as a sum of four squares.

BIRTHS

1732  Joseph Jérôme Le Français de Lalande, (11 July 1732 – 4 April 1807) was a an astronomer, born in Bourg-en-Bresse, France. He determined the Moon's parallax from Berlin for the French Academy (1751). He was appointed professor of Astronomy, Collège de France (1762), and subsequently, director of the Paris Observatory. He published his Traité d'astronomie in 1764 - tables of the planetary positions that were considered the best available for the rest of the century. In 1801 he also published a comprehensive star catalogue. He died in 1807, apparently of tuberculosis. *TIS

1811 Sir William Robert Grove, (11 July 1811 – 1 August 1896) British physicist and a justice of Britain's high court (from 1880), who first offered proof of the thermal dissociation of atoms within a molecule. He showed that steam in contact with a strongly heated platinum wire is decomposed into hydrogen and oxygen in a reversible reaction. In 1839, Grove mixed hydrogen and oxygen in the presence of an electrolyte, and produced electricity and water. This Grove Cell was the invention of the fuel cell. The technology was not seriously revisited until the1960s. Through the electrochemical process, the energy stored in a fuel is converted - without combusting fuel - directly into DC electricity.*TIS

1857 Sir Joseph Larmor (11 July 1857 Magheragall, County Antrim, Ireland – 19 May 1942 Holywood, County Down, Northern Ireland), Irish physicist, the first to calculate the rate at which energy is radiated by an accelerated electron, and the first to explain the splitting of spectrum lines by a magnetic field. His theories were based on the belief that matter consists entirely of electric particles moving in the ether. His elaborate mathematical electrical theory of the late 1890s included the "electron" as a rotational strain (a sort of twist) in the ether. But Larmor's theory did not describe the electron as a part of the atom. Many physicists envisioned both material particles and electromagnetic forces as structures and strains in that hypothetical fluid. *TIS

1857 Alfred Binet (July 11, 1857 – October 18, 1911) who introduced his famous IQ test in 1905. *VFR French experimental psychologist, the director of the psychological laboratory of the Sorbonne, Paris (1894). He made fundamental contributions to the measurement of intelligence.With Theodore Simon, Binet produced a series of graded tasks typical of the intellectual development of children of different ages (1905). This scale was extended (1908-11), and the tasks were assigned to the age level at which average children could manage them. Thus children could be scored for the level, or mental age, they reached. This test formed the basis for the Stanford-Binet Tests.*TIS (today in Science also gives Binet's birthdate on July 11th, with a different description:  French psychologist who was a pioneer in the field of intelligence testing of the normal mind. He took a different approach than most psychologists of his day: he was interested in the workings of the normal mind rather than the pathology of mental illness. He wanted to find a way to measure the ability to think and reason, apart from education in any particular field. In 1905 he developed a test in which he had children do tasks such as follow commands, copy patterns, name objects, and put things in order or arrange them properly. He gave the test to Paris schoolchildren and created a standard based on his data. From Binet's work, "IQ" (intelligence quotient), entered the vocabulary. The IQ is the ratio of "mental age" to chronological age, with 100 being average.)

1890 Giacomo Albanese (11 July 1890 – 8 June 1947) was an Italian mathematician known for his work in algebraic geometry. He took a permanent position in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1936. *Wik

1902 Samuel Abraham Goudsmit (The Hague, July 11, 1902 — Reno, December 4, 1978) Dutch-born U.S. physicist who, with George E. Uhlenbeck, a fellow graduate student at the University of Leiden, Neth., formulated (1925) the concept of electron spin. It led to recognition that spin was a property of protons, neutrons, and most elementary particles and to a fundamental change in the mathematical structure of quantum mechanics. Goudsmit also made the first measurement of nuclear spin and its Zeeman effect with Ernst Back (1926-27), developed a theory of hyperfine structure of spectral lines, made the first spectroscopic determination of nuclear magnetic moments (1931-33), contributed to the theory of complex atoms and the theory of multiple scattering of electrons, and invented the magnetic time-of-flight mass spectrometer (1948).*TIS

1922 John William Scott Cassels  (11 July 1922 in Durham - ) initially worked on elliptic curves. After a period when he worked on geometry of numbers and diophantine approximation, he returned in the later 1950s to the arithmetic of elliptic curves, writing a series of papers connecting the Selmer group with Galois cohomology and laying some of the foundations of the modern theory of infinite descent. His best-known single result may be the proof that the Tate-Shafarevich group, if it is finite, must have order that is a square; the proof being by construction of an alternating form. Cassels has often studied individual Diophantine equations by algebraic number theory and p-adic methods. 
His publications include 200 papers. His advanced textbooks have influenced generations of mathematicians; some of Cassels's books have remained in print for decades. *Wik


DEATHS
1382 Nicole Oresme (c. 1320–5 – July 11, 1382), was a French mathematician who invented coordinate geometry long before Descartes. He was the first to use a fractional exponent and also worked on infinite series. *SAU
Oresme was Bishop of Liseux and died there, but I was recently (2011) at the Cathedral and cold find no mark of his life there.
"His most important contributions to mathematics are contained in "Tractatus de figuratione potentiarum et mensurarum difformitatum", still in manuscript. An abridgment of this work printed as "Tractatus de latitudinibus formarum" (1482, 1486, 1505, 1515), has heretofore been the only source for the study of his mathematical ideas. In a quality, or accidental form, such as heat, the Scholastics distinguished the intensio (the degree of heat at each point) and the extensio (e.g., the length of the heated rod): these two terms were often replaced by latitudo and longitudo, and from the time of St. Thomas until far on in the fourteenth century, there was lively debate on the latitudo formæ. For the sake of lucidity, Oresme conceived the idea of employing what we should now call rectangular co-ordinates: in modern terminology, a length proportionate to the longitudo was the abscissa at a given point, and a perpendicular at that point, proportional to the latitudo, was the ordinate. He shows that a geometrical property of such a figure could be regarded as corresponding to a property of the form itself only when this property remains constant while the units measuring the longitudo and latitudo vary. Hence he defines latitudo uniformis as that which is represented by a line parallel to the longitude, and any other latitudo is difformis; the latitudo uniformiter difformis is represented by a right line inclined to the axis of the longitude. He proves that this definition is equivalent to an algebraical relation in which the longitudes and latitudes of any three points would figure: i.e., he gives the equation of the right line, and thus forestalls Descartes in the invention of analytical geometry. This doctrine he extends to figures of three dimensions.
Besides the longitude and latitude of a form, he considers the mensura, or quantitas, of the form, proportional to the area of the figure representing it. He proves this theorem: A form uniformiter difformis has the same quantity as a form uniformis of the same longitude and having as latitude the mean between the two extreme limits of the first. He then shows that his method of figuring the latitude of forms is applicable to the movement of a point, on condition that the time is taken as longitude and the speed as latitude; quantity is, then, the space covered in a given time. In virtue of this transposition, the theorem of the latitude uniformiter difformis became the law of the space traversed in case of uniformly varied motion: Oresme's demonstration is exactly the same as that which Galileo was to render celebrated in the seventeenth century. Moreover, this law was never forgotten during the interval between Oresme and Galileo: it was taught at Oxford by William Heytesbury and his followers, then, at Paris and in Italy, by all the followers of this school. In the middle of the sixteenth century, long before Galileo, the Dominican Dominic Soto applied the law to the uniformly accelerated falling of heavy bodies and to the uniformly decreasing ascension of projectiles."

1733 Jakob Hermann (16 July 1678, Basel – 11 July 1733, Basel) was a Swiss mathematician who made contributions to dynamics. *SAU

1807 George Atwood was an English mathematician best known for his invention of a low-friction pulley system.*SAU He is the author of Phoronomia, an early treatise on Mechanics. In 1729, he proclaimed that it was as easy to graph a locus on the polar coordinate system as it was to graph it on the Cartesian coordinate system. However, no one listened. He was a distant relative of Euler. *Wik

1778 Joseph Stepling, (29 June 1716 in Regensburg; 11 July 1778 in Prague) His fields included astronomy, physics and mathematics. At the age of 17 he documented with great accuracy the 1733 lunar eclipse. Later Euler was among his long list of correspondents. He transposed Aristotelian logic into formulas, thus becoming an early precursor of modern logic. already adopted the atomistic conception of matter he radically refused to accept Aristotelian metaphysics and natural philosophy. In 1748, at the request of the Berlin Academy, he carried out an exact observation of a solar and lunar eclipse in order to determine the precise location of Prague. During Stepling's long tenure at Prague, he set up a laboratory for experimental physics and in 1751 built an observatory, the instruments and fittings of which he brought up to the latest scientific standard.
v Even though he passed up a professorship in philosophy in favor of a chair in mathematics, Empress Maria Theresa appointed him director of the faculty of philosophy at Prague as part of the reform of higher education. He was very interested in cultivating the exact sciences and founded a society for the study of science modeled on the Royal Society of London. In their monthly sessions. over which he presided until his death, the group carried out research work and investigations in the field of pure mathematics and its appiication to physics and astronomy. A great number of treatises of this academy were published.
Stepling corresponded with the outstanding contemporary mathematicians and astronomers: Christian Wolf. Leonhard Euler. Christopher Maire, Nicolas-Louis de Lacaille, Maximilian Heli, Joseph Franz, Rudjer Boskovic, Heinrich Hiss, and others. Also, Stepling was particularly successful in educating many outstanding scientists, including Johann Wendlingen, Jakob Heinisch, Johannes von Herberstein, Kaspar Sagner, Stephan Schmidt, Johann Korber, and Joseph Bergmann. After his death, Maria Theresia ordered a monument erected in the library of the University of Prague *Joseph MacDonnell, Fairfield Univ web page

1745 George Atwood (Baptized October 15, 1745, Westminster,London – 11 July 1807, London) was an English mathematician who invented a machine for illustrating the effects of Newton's first law of motion. He was the first winner of the Smith's Prize in 1769. He was also a renowned chess player whose skill for recording many games of his own and of other players, including François-André Danican Philidor, the leading master of his time, left a valuable historical record for future generations.

He attended Westminster School and in 1765 was admitted to Trinity College, Cambridge. He graduated in 1769 with the rank of third wrangler and was awarded the inaugural first Smith's Prize. Subsequently he became a fellow and a tutor of the college and in 1776 was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of London.

In 1784 he left Cambridge and soon afterwards received from William Pitt the Younger the office of patent searcher of the customs, which required but little attendance, enabling him to devote a considerable portion of his time to mathematics and physics.

He died unmarried in Westminster at the age of 61, and was buried there at St. Margaret's Church. Over a century later, a lunar crater was renamed Atwood in his honour. *Wik

1871 Germain Sommeiller (February 15, 1815 - July 11, 1871) French-Italian engineer who built the Mount Cenis (Fréjus) Tunnel (1857-70) through the Alps, the world's first important mountain tunnel. The two track railway tunnel unites Italian Savoy (north of the mountains) through Switzerland with the rest of Italy to the south. At 8 miles long and it was more than double the length of any previous tunnel. In 1861, after three years of tedious hand-boring a mere eight inches a day into the rock face, Sommeiller introduced the first industrial-scale pneumatics for tunnel digging. He built a special reservoir, high above the tunnel entrance, to produce a head of water that compressed air (to 6 atm.) for pneumatic drills, able to dig up to 20 times faster. Authorised on 15 Aug 1857, the tunnel opened on 17 Sep 1871, as a major triumph of engineering.*TIS Note his death was only a few months before the opening of his great project.

1909 Astronomer and mathematician Simon Newcomb (March 12, 1835 – July 11, 1909) died in Washington D.C. He was such a revered scientist that President Taft attended his funeral.*VFR  Canadian-American astronomer and and mathematician who prepared ephemerides (tables of computed places of celestial bodies over a period of time) and tables of astronomical constants. He was an astronomer (1861-77) before becoming Superintendent of the U.S. Nautical Almanac Office (1877-97). During this time he undertook numerous studies in celestial mechanics. His central goal was to place planetary and satellite motions on a completely uniform system, thereby raising solar system studies and the theory of gravitation to a new level. He largely accomplished this goal with the adoption of his new system of astronomical constants at the end of the century. *TIS
Newcomb is buried in Arlington National Cemetery 
Newcomb is often quoted as saying that heavier than air flight was impossible from a statement he made only two months before the Wright Brothers flight at Kitty Hawk, N.C.
"The mathematician of to-day admits that he can neither square the circle, duplicate the cube or trisect the angle. May not our mechanicians, in like manner, be ultimately forced to admit that aerial flight is one of that great class of problems with which men can never cope… I do not claim that this is a necessary conclusion from any past experience. But I do think that success must await progress of a different kind from that of invention."   He also is famously quoted for saying, "We are probably nearing the limit of all we can know about astronomy." 


1995 Andrzej Alexiewicz (11 February 1917, Lwów, Poland – 11 July 1995) was a Polish mathematician, a disciple of the Lwow School of Mathematics. Alexiewicz was an expert at functional analysis and continued and edited the work of Stefan Banach. *Wik

          Hydrangeas      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


My dear friend, Kristin, runs a consulting business with her sister where they have spearheaded several events for Martha Stewart Weddings (I know!).  Recently, they were part of a booth at Renegade Craft Fair where they had the most amazing flower wall!  In order to make the flower wall, they put gorgeous hydrangeas on their side and stacked on shelves- it was a dreamy backdrop for pictures!  The theme, naturally, was Endless Summer!


The problem?  No one wanted the hydrangeas back after the fair, nor do most people have enough room (especially those in the city!) to plant that many shrubs in their yard.  However, Kristin and I just couldn't see letting that many shrubs go to a landfill, so I took the truck (and Gretchen and Grace), drove it through lower Manhattan, and over the bridge, to Brooklyn to pick up as many hydrangeas as I could fit.


You guys, I even parallel parked on the street.  We were so proud we had to take a picture.


Somehow, as I ferried the hydrangea out to the truck, Grace and Gretchen managed to squeeze 64 plants in the back of the truck!  It was no easy task and involved getting fairly dirty.





When we got home with the hydrangea, it dawned on me that we now had to plant all of them!  We started out hand digging the holes but soon moved to using the auger on the back of the tractor.  I had originally thought that I would plant the shrubs in the field, but realized that it would be too much heat and sun for the hydrangea, which benefits from some shade.  We ended up lining the walkway that leads to the garden and barn with them.  I think when they fill out and up they will be stunning!

TRANSFORMERS TRADING CARDGAME

IS MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE

TRANSFORMERS TCG from Hasbro and Wizards of the Coast to Launch Later in 2018; Fans to Get Sneak Peek with Convention Edition Item at San Diego Comic-Con and Gen Con

PAWTUCKET, RI AND RENTON, WA–JULY 10, 2018 –Hasbro, Inc., a global play and entertainment company, and Wizards of the Coast,a subsidiary of Hasbro and the publishers of the seminal trading card game Magic: The Gathering, provided more details today  about a trading card game inspired by Hasbro’s iconic TRANSFORMERS franchise: the TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game. Designed for players ages 8 and up, the TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game will be available for purchase in the United States and certain other markets later in 2018.

The TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game is a fast, easy-to-learn action battling card game designed for two players. Players build a team of TRANSFORMERS character cards and power them up with a customizable deck of battle cards. TRANSFORMERS character cards are huge – character cards in the AUTOBOTS Starter Set and Booster Packs are twice the size of standard playing cards, and can be flipped from bot mode to alt mode and back – and feature premium printing treatment on one of their sides. The deck of battle cards features Action and Upgrade cards to enhance TRANSFORMERS character cards.

“The TCG format lets us pull TRANSFORMERS characters from across the brand’s massive history. From Bumblebee to Sunstorm – the game is digging deep into the TRANSFORMERS lore,” said Drew Nolosco, TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Brand Manager. “We can even focus on different aspects of the same character. Optimus Prime, for example, is immensely powerful in combat, but he’s also a master tactician. The Transformers TCG will let players explore the characters’ depth through engaging and tactical gameplay.”

At launch, TRANSFORMERS fans can look forward to the following:

·       AUTOBOTS Starter Set – The AUTOBOTS Starter Set contains cards for two players to begin gameplay, and features OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, IRONHIDE and RED ALERT character cards. It will be available for purchase at retailers in the United States beginning on Sept. 28, 2018, and in certain other markets later in 2018.

·       TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Booster Packs – Players can add to their character card teams and battle card decks for full gameplay with Booster Packs. Each Booster Pack contains 1 TRANSFORMERS character card and 7 battle cards from a pool of 40 character cards and 81 battle cards. Booster Packs will be sold separately and available for purchase at retailers in the United States beginning on Sept. 28, 2018, and in certain other markets later in 2018.

Fans can get a first look at four cards for the TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game in July with the TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Convention Edition. Limited quantities will be available for purchase at Comic-Con International 2018 in San Diego, Gen Con 2018 in Indianapolis and through the Hasbro Toy Shop at HasbroToyShop.com, where available, after the conventions. The TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Convention Edition contains two TRANSFORMERS character cards (CLIFFJUMPER – RENEGADE WARRIOR and SLIPSTREAM – STRATEGIC SEEKER) and two battle cards (All-Out Attack and Tandem Targeting System) not available in the AUTOBOTS Starter Set or the TRANSFORMERS Trading Card Game Booster Packs.

Pesto Genovese von Hand mörsern bis dir vom Basilikum-Duft schwindlig wird. Für Basilikumpesto verwende ich keine Küchenmaschine. Die hohe Drehzahl des Messers erwärmt die Blätter zu stark, die ätherischen Öle verflüchtigen sich und das Pesto wird tendenziell bitter. Mörsern ergibt aber nicht nur das bessere Pesto, es ist auch eine sinnliche Küchenarbeit. Fast schon meditativ. […]

LADIES… Scabiosa by Magda Indigo


I said it before, I think Scabiosa is a very feminine flower, well here you get three from me; Each floret is composed of tightly packed, button-shaped, nectar rich centres which up close have charming dancing stamens, which coat pollen over visiting bees and butterflies. Each flat flower is beautifully skirted in large outer florets and collared by reflexed vegetative bracts. If regularly deadheaded, they continue into October and last two weeks in the vase. I love what I’m doing and look forward to another week of finished images, to add to the vast collection. I am addicted to the final thrill… each time, when I press save, for the last time!

Do you own a Panasonic AU-EVA1 camera? Tired of digging through YouTube and/or shady forums to get additional intel on how to squeeze the very last piece of performance out of it? Well, look no further. Barry Green has published a comprehensive e-book – An EVA1 Guide for free!

Almost every major camera manufacturer has its own industry specialist. One who knows every last detail of a given camera and spreads the word among the community. Sony has Alister Chapman, RED has Phil Holland and Panasonic? Well, Panasonic has Barry Green. And that exact Barry Green has just published an extensive e-book, an EVA1 guide.
Panasonic AU-EVA1 Guide
Just as Alister Chapman’s guide to the Sony FS7 Cine EI mode, this EVA1 guide isn’t just a manual. It’s a comprehensive real-life guide to the camera. Since Barry Green is a professional in his line of work, this guide is far from real-life Youtube flicks which oftentimes come without too much insight.. This guide to the EVA1 covers everything there is: The camera body itself with all the connectors, buttons and dials, the menu structure, codecs and recordings formats, LUTs and looks, and everything else. All in one PDF. For a brief overview of the camera in question, watch the video below, also hosted by Barry Green:

I’m not sure if you have to read all of the 208 pages of this EVA1 guide but if you need to look up some specific function of the camera, this guide might be a very handy and comprehensive reference. And, since you can download it as a PDF, you can take it with you all the time. No internet connection needed for that frustating Youtube session.
Download for Free
The EVA1 guide is available for download and it’s completely free. You need to fill out a form with your credentials and that’s it. Head over to info.panasonic.com and get your copy. Only one download is admitted for a given email adress so you might want to save the PDF in order to refer back to it when you need it.

           Abnormal load specialist delivers 85-tonne crawler cranes to Heathrow      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A British abnormal load specialist has completed a night-time delivery to London Heathrow Airport of two Liebherr HS8130HD crawler cranes, each weighing 85 tonnes together with their 28-tonne digger buckets, according to Shipping Gazette.Originating in the north of England, the load was delivered by Hertfordshire's Hallett Silbermann on a 12 axled extendable rear steer low loader hauled by a Scania R730 8 x 4 tractor weighing 139 tonnes.Hallett Silbermann provided their own Highways Agency compliant escort vehicles to accompany the loads throughout their two-day journey.The diaphragm wall excavating plant was needed for the latest phase of Heathrow's integrated baggage system construction project, which will use conveyor systems running in 2.1 kilometres of tunnels under the airport to transfer passenger bags quickly between terminals for connecting flights.In addition to the two crawler cranes and digger buckets, Hallett Silbermann also delivered numerous loads of ancillary equipment, including a smaller 80 ton crane, 16-metre silos and 18-metre cages.Hallett Silbermann operates across the UK but has recently completed a number of complex movements for clients throughout London on Crossrail, Tideway, and now HS2 projects. FORS Gold compliance and Euro 6 vehicles has been a major requirement on some of these.

I am digging the solid punk praxis of throwing all-ages shows at the indoor skatepark.

          I Bought This $23 Strapless Bra on Amazon - It's So Comfortable, I Wear It Constantly      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Strapless bras are my worst enemy. I absolutely hate wearing them and avoid it at all costs. As a fairly average C cup, I'm not a fan of the constant tugging and adjusting I have to do without the support of straps. Plus, wires digging into my sides is no fun. Then, I found a godsend. I came across this Lilyette by Bali Strapless Bra ($23-$24) on Amazon - it's the bestselling option on the entire site.

I can wear this bra from morning till night with zero discomfort. It does have underwire for support, but I can't even feel it. There are grippers on the interior of the bra that keep it from every slipping. It also comes with detachable straps and converts four different ways. It's available in beige, black, and white. The design is intended for larger busts, so the sizes range from 34C to 42DD. Basically, this bra is a miracle.

"This bra is the best I've found to support and lift my large 40DD breasts," one buyer wrote. "The band is very thick which serves as extra support as well as being helpful at smoothing back fat. The minimizing effects make me look and feel a cup size smaller. The bra comes with two adjustable straps that you can place along the cup to connect in multiple ways to the band in the back."

If you're picky about strapless bras, you have to give this one a try.


          Demi Lovato Found the Most Flattering One-Piece on Earth, and DAMN, She's Lookin' Like a 10      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

If you take a peek inside Demi Lovato's bathing suit drawer, you'll likely get dizzy, because it's filled with a boatload of stripes. The singer has a thing for striped swimwear, whether it's rainbow-colored or covered in a retro cherry print, and she just put her obsession with the classic pattern on display yet again with a new Instagram post that's giving us major swimsuit envy.

Demi shared an album-cover-worthy photo of herself posing atop a boat while wearing rocking the hell out of a striped one-piece. Her strapless swimsuit featured a prominent cutout in the front, right below a flirty knotted detail, and she paired it with aviator-style sunglasses. The 25-year-old captioned the sexy snap, "I rewear the same 5 bathing suits over and over again if you haven't noticed."

That's right - Demi has, in fact, worn this one-piece before, as she posed for a waterfall photo in Bali wearing it back in May. After digging through our jam-packed file on Demi's swimsuit collection, we realized that she also may or may not have worn the same strapless striped number back in January - but backward. If our sleuthing skills are on point, then by golly, someone needs to get this woman an award for her expert swimsuit styling skills. Ahead, shop what we believe to be Demi's exact one-piece bathing suit (which is apparently reversible), along with other similar styles.

          Bitcoin analysis for 11/07/2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Bitcoin analysis for 11/07/2018:

Cryptocurrency malware that infected more than one million computers in China has reportedly earned over $ 2 million in its developers over two years.

According to a local press report, the police in the Chinese city of Da Lian arrested 20 suspects from a computer company that allegedly took control of a large number of computers to earn illegal digging of cryptocurrencies.

By clicking on ads and installing plugins, more than a million computers were infected, extracting 26 million dollars in two years in DigiByte, Decred and Siacoin, police informs.

Hackers evidently chose to extract smaller cryptocurrencies, because they do not require so much computing power, which allows a quieter extraction process and less chance of seeing it by the victims. The report also indicates that hackers have created a network of over 100 agents who helped propagate illegal mining software, for example by working with Internet cafes.

In June, another group of hackers in China was also liquidated for alleged collusion with local computer maintenance companies in order to break into more than 100,000 computers belonging to internet cafes - also to extract the Siacoin cryptocurrency.

Traders beware: do not install suspicious programs and do not follow any suspicious links on social media related to the cryptocurrency news, analysis, airdrops or bounty.

Let's now take a look at the Bitcoin technical picture at the H4 time frame. The market has broken below the short-term internal trend line support and now is consolidating in the middle of the range, around the level of technical support at $6,334. The price is already below the weekly pivot, which might indicate more downside price action to come soon. The next target for bears is seen at the level of $6,064 (weekly pivot support) and then at $5,900, which is very close to the swing bottom at $5,742.

Nederland Mauritiuskerk Marsum by theo vd boom


Kerken-Church-Eglise https://www.facebook.com/groups/theovdboom/ Marssum (Fries en officieel: Marsum) is een dorp in de gemeente Menaldumadeel, provincie Friesland (Nederland). Het ligt ten oosten van de hoofdplaats Menaldum en heeft ongeveer 1020 inwoners (2004). Omdat Leeuwarden zich steeds meer naar het westen heeft uitgebreid ligt Marssum inmiddels nog maar enkele kilometers van Leeuwarden. De Mauritiuskerk in Marsum (gemeente Appingedam), eigendom van de Stichting Oude Groninger Kerken, is een van de fraaiste middeleeuwse kerken in de Nederlandse provincie Groningen Men veronderstelt dat de Marsumer kerk dateert uit de 12e eeuw en daarmee behoort tot de oudste bakstenen kerken in de provincie. Na dendrochronologisch onderzoek naar de dakconstructie acht de Stichting Oude Groninger Kerken het echter niet onaannemelijk dat de kerk gebouwd is aan het begin van de 14e eeuw. Het jaartal 1306 werd gesuggereerd, maar het is ook mogelijk dat toen de kap is vernieuwd. De kerk staat op een afgegraven wierde. Het grotendeels nog gave romaanse kerkgebouw is vrijwel het enige restant van het kerkdorp Marsum, dat bij het Beleg van Delfzijl (1813-1814) in de Franse tijd bijna compleet werd verwoest. Het is een kleine eenbeukige zaalkerk met een inspringend halfrond koor en een zadeldaktoren waarvan de verdieping naar het schip is toegekeerd. Laag in de noord- en zuidwand bevinden zich smalle vensters (hagioscopen). Op de apsis liggen nog de oorspronkelijke monniken en nonnen (holle en bolle dakpannen). Het balkenplafond is niet uit de middeleeuwen, maar uit het einde van de 18e eeuw, evenals de preekstoel. Op de torenklok is een afbeelding van de heilige Mauritius gegraveerd, met de tekst: s.mauritius ben ick geheten marsum heeft mi laten geten ao 1620, joannes symon & anthonius filius & petrus joly galli me fecerunt De genoemde drie klokkengieters Symon (vader en zoon) en Joly hebben veel meer kerken in Groningen, Friesland en Oost-Friesland van klokken voorzien.

Then some bright soul did some digging, and discovered that the tax break that is the reason why the economy's in the crapper was actually part of the infamous Obama stimulus bill, passed by the Democratic-controlled Congress and signed by Obama himself.

His neighborhood had recently experienced severe downpours, so he knew whatever was making those noises was in desperate need. The heroes from MHS arrived on the scene and performed a stunning rescue right there in the backyard. A stray dog named Raina had given birth to a litter of 11 puppies. She tried to keep them safe from the flash flooding by digging a hole. By the time MHS arrived, Raina and her babies

          Here's what it's like to eat at McDonald's in 7 countries around the world (MCD)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

mcdonalds japan

  • McDonald's has thousands of locations all around the world. 
  • We asked six of our international colleagues — in Singapore, Japan, India, Sweden, and the Netherlands — to visit a McDonald's location near them.
  • They found that the chain catered to local tastes with regional variations on popular items like mayonnaise-flavored French fries and coconut pies.
  • While some were surprised by the quality of McDonald's regional items, others were disappointed. We also tried one of the new items featured at US locations of McDonald's. 

 

With over 36,000 locations in more than 100 countries, McDonald's is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. While it made its name with staples like the Big Mac and Quarter Pounder, the chain tailors its menu to local tastes, which means that a McDonald's in India will look very different from one in the United States.

After trying one of McDonald's newest items in the United States, we asked some of our international colleagues in six different countries — Singapore, Japan, India, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the UK — to go to a McDonald's near them and tell us about the experience. We found that each catered to regional tastes with variations on the chain's traditional offerings that surprised us.

See what our colleagues had to say below.

Singapore

Who would've thought that our quintessential local dish, Nasi Lemak, could actually be turned into a burger?

Commonly eaten for breakfast, Nasi Lemak is a fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk, and it's usually accompanied with a range of side dishes such as fried egg, cucumber, ikan bilis and most importantly – some spicy sambal chilli.

So imagine our doubt when we heard about McDonald's new item.

What could be better than our regular McChicken sandwich and iced Milo?

 

 



We purchased the bundle set ($9), which comprises the Nasi Lemak burger (of course), coconut pie, Bandung McFizz and French fries, which can be upsized to the criss-cut fries option.

Juicy coconut-flavored chicken patty? Check. Fried egg? Check. Cucumber slices? Check. Caramelized onions? Check. Oh, and all these were served between semolina buns – not the basic sesame seed burger buns.

The verdict for just this burger alone? We’re absolutely digging it.

We went into the test filled with skepticism. Little did we expect to be mind-blown by how the burger could taste just like a dish of, well, Nasi Lemak. Consider us sold.

 



Most of us at the taste test enjoyed coconut-flavored desserts, except for one. But this coconut pie might have changed her perspective on all coconut-y sweets.

The coconut filling was warm and silky-smooth — so good that it managed to win over a non-fan of coconut-flavored food.

The death toll from record-breaking floods in western Japan has reached at least 176 as rescuer workers searched for dozens of others missing in hardest-hit Hiroshima and Okayama prefectures. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga announced the death toll Wednesday, The Japan Times reported. As of Tuesday afternoon, more than 50 people were still listed as unaccounted for, the newspaper said. A new evacuation was ordered Tuesday for the town of Fuchu, after the Enoki River overflowed the previous day, the newspaper said. According to the Times , "About 1,000 rescuers continued to search in flooded areas of the city of Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture, for people trapped in their homes. More than 20 people died in the city after river dikes collapsed, inundating around 4,600 homes."

Awaken the Darkness 
(Immortal Guardians #8)
by Dianne Duvall 
Kindle Edition, 414 pages
Publication: July 10th 2018 by Dianne Duvall

Return to the "utterly addictive" (RT Book Reviews), "fast-paced and humorous" (Publishers Weekly) world of New York Times bestselling author Dianne Duvall's Immortal Guardians.  

He awakens encapsulated in dirt with no knowledge of how he came to be there. Riddled with injuries, he can remember neither his past nor who he is. Nor can he remember what he is. But surely no mortal man could survive being buried deep beneath the earth. All he knows with certainty is that the soothing voice and presence of the woman moving around above enables him to endure the agony of his wounds. And he will do whatever it takes to be with her.

When Susan first sees the old two-story house for sale, such warmth and longing fill her that—against all reason—she makes an offer. It will take years of hard work and money she frankly doesn’t have to fix up the place. So she can’t explain why she bought it. She also can’t explain what compels her to spend hours one night, digging in the basement until she unearths a man. A man who still lives and breathes despite having been buried alive. A man whose intense brown eyes glow amber with pain, declaring him far more than ordinary. Susan knows she should keep her distance. He has no memory and possesses gifts that would make most fear him. But as the two work together to unravel the mystery of his past, she finds herself drawn in by his teasing nature and tender touch. So much so that she loses her heart to him even as they find themselves hunted by unknown enemies who are ruthless in their quest to capture them.

Tens of thousands of rescue and recovery workers were digging through the debris as the search entered its fifth day, The Associated Press reports.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe visited the flood-ravaged region, promising that his government would do whatever it could to bring a return to normalcy.

In the city of Kurashiki in Okayama Prefecture, Teruo Sasai, whose house, along with nearly a dozen others in his neighborhood, was flooded out, and described the destruction "unbelievable."

"The floodwaters were up over my house, probably reaching 4 or 5 meters [13 to 16 feet], up past the roof all the way to the TV antenna. Thankfully, I was OK and nobody in this neighborhood was severely injured," he told the Kyodo news agency.

"We're still cleaning up. But I'd guess that, in order to recover, it's going to take at least a year, and cost hundreds of millions of yen or more," he added.

Kyodo reports:

"Although the government has yet to fully establish the extent of the damage, some 347 homes were totally or partially destroyed and 9,868 homes were flooded as of Tuesday morning, according to the Fire and Disaster Management Agency.

The figures are expected to rise substantially, since municipal authorities have yet to finish their own damage assessments."

          Provocateur, Candidate: James Ehlers’ History of Rhetorical Excess      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Gubernatorial candidate James Ehlers has claimed to be the progressive choice in the four-way Democratic primary, positioning himself as a fighter for the environment and the interests of working Vermonters. But he has a long record of writings and statements that cast doubt on his progressive bona fides. On a series of issues — from labor to abortion to the environment — Ehlers has expressed views that seem quite conservative, often in inflammatory rhetoric. Recently, VTDigger.org reporters have begun to explore his writings on social media and in print, and his campaign has struggled to respond. Ehlers' replies have been social media posts or emails; his campaign has not made him available to the press for interviews. On Monday evening, after multiple requests, he engaged in a lengthy and sometimes-contentious conversation with me about his past statements — his first interview on the subject since those pesky media reports began to circulate. He tried to explain the consistency of his positions and argued that his extreme rhetoric is a deliberate tactic to spark debate. He wasn't entirely convincing. For most of his career, Ehlers' advocacy has come from a sportsman's point of view — that environmental protection is a good thing if it serves human interests. Lake Champlain International, the advocacy group he leads (and from which he draws an annual salary just short of $90,000), holds a Father's Day Fishing Derby as its biggest fundraiser. He has fought the establishment of new wilderness lands in Vermont and slammed environmental organizations as elitist. He has called into question the very idea of the "green economy," which he now heartily espouses. Here are some highlights, or lowlights, from his written record. In 1998, the State of Vermont purchased 132,000 acres of Northeast Kingdom forest from Champion International, the timber company. There followed four-plus years of debate over the use of what was then referred to as the Champion lands. Ehlers fought vociferously against any wilderness designation for any part of the tract. He accused wilderness advocates of seeking to block all human uses of the land — which was not true, as we shall see. In a 2001 email exchange with Annette Smith, executive director of Vermonters for a Clean Environment, he alleged that then-governor Howard Dean had broken promises to keep all the Champion lands open to human use, and characterized the battle for access as "a fight between…

The verdict for just this burger alone? We’re absolutely digging it.

We went into the test filled with skepticism. Little did we expect to be mind-blown by how the burger could taste just like a dish of, well, Nasi Lemak. Consider us sold.

 



Most of us at the taste test enjoyed coconut-flavored desserts, except for one. But this coconut pie might have changed her perspective on all coconut-y sweets.

The coconut filling was warm and silky-smooth — so good that it managed to win over a non-fan of coconut-flavored food.

          Comment on Matthew Chapter 7  by Sylvia Galvan      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Matthew 7:24-29. Rock or Sand Foundation As a great Master Counselor, Jesus reminded His listener that hearing this message alone will not change his life. He must both hear and do what Jesus has said. The man whose house collapsed was at fault, not because he failed to labor, but because he did not lay the proper foundation.The shifting sand represents human opinion and the doctrines of men as opposed to "these sayings " (verse 28). The works done by the believer are not based on himself but on the "rock" (v.24),who ultimately is Christ Himself 1Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them and that Rock was Christ. Luke 6:47-49 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like: v.48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
          Five Vikings expected to outperform their contracts in 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
With 218 catches for 2,705 yards and 16 touchdowns, there may not be another Vikings player who has outplayed his current contract more than receiver Stefon Diggs. He’s made about $1.8 million in three NFL seasons, and is set to make $1.9 million at the end of his rookie deal. That’s why Vikings general manager Rick Spielman is trying to re-sign Diggs to a long-term extension this summer. Assuming Diggs gets a healthy pay bump before Week 1, given the Vikings’ track record for locking up ‘home-grown’ talent, which other players are set to outperform their deals? I’m glad you asked. 1. Receiver Adam Thielen 2018 cap hit: $6,100,000 Position rank: 32nd (per OverTheCap.com) The deal: Let’s call Thielen and Dalvin Cook 1a and 1b on this list. Thielen has been outperforming his contract ever since he got $11 million guaranteed on a three-year extension after the 2016 season (when he had 89 career catches for 1,248 yards). He more than doubled his career numbers last season with 91 catches for 1,276 yards, establishing himself as one of the NFL’s top receivers. The Vikings would be wise to revisit his contract soon and keep happy one of their top weapons.  2. Running back Dalvin Cook 2018 cap hit: $1,443,934 Position rank: 39th The deal: Rookie contracts… With all the big-money deals to keep stars, the Vikings need contributors on bargain deals. There are fewer better examples in the NFL than running back Dalvin Cook, who played 70 percent of the snaps before tearing his ACL in Week 4 and is again expected to play a heavy role in the offense under John DeFilippo. Cook is expected to be the engine driving the offense, with $84 million quarterback Kirk Cousins thriving off the run game as he did with impressive play-action numbers in Washington. Cook’s workload this summer will be monitored as he eases back in. At this rate, they should let him go as far as his surgically-repaired left knee can take him. 3. Center Pat Elflein 2018 cap hit: $871,210 Position rank: 38th The deal: Elflein showed promise in an up-and-down rookie season. He’ll be expected to take another step forward in 2018 while anchoring the middle of an all-too-often unstable offensive line. His ongoing recovery from ankle surgery this offseason hindered one of the items on his to-do list: the weight room. What is certain is Elflein, an agile center, is expected to be a great fit for the Vikings’ movement-based offense under first-year coordinator John DeFilippo.  4. Defensive end Brian Robison 2018 cap hit: $1,105,000Position rank: 61st  The deal: Robison gave back about $2 million in a contract restructure to remain with the Vikings this offseason. The longest-tenured Viking is expected to retire after a 12th season in Minnesota. With how often Mike Zimmer likes to rotate defensive linemen, he’s expected to again play a part-time role on one of the best values in the NFL. His year started by filling in for the injured Everson Griffen throughout spring practices. Robison should add to a current total of 60 sacks before calling it a career. 5. Safety Harrison Smith2018 cap hit: $10,000,000Position rank: 6th The deal: Smith has been under the radar for years, but he stepped into the national spotlight in 2017 with a first-team All-Pro selection and third consecutive Pro Bowl after leading a 13-3 team. He’s better than fifth best in the league, which is what his $10.25 million per season ranks on a five-year contract signed in June 2016. As big of a letdown as the NFC Championship loss was, it wasn’t indicative of Smith’s play, nor that of many members of the defense.  Honorable mention Tackle Rashod Hill 2018 cap hit: $630,000Position rank: t-61st  The deal: Hill took starting reps at right tackle throughout the spring and could again be heavily relied upon by the Vikings offense. Hill’s readiness will either factor immediately at right tackle, or if Mike Remmers starts there would help stave off rookie Brian O’Neill’s debut in the event of an injury to a starter.

The Jewish press in Britain and around the world has seemed thrilled for the last few days.  “One of Britain’s most vocal anti-Semites,”( apparently me) “was handed a humiliating court defeat in London on Monday” wrote The Jewish Algemeiner. On Twitter, Israel’s firsters wrote about me ‘grovelling’ at court.
I guess that lying is a bit of an official policy within such circles. In order to remove any questions regarding my position in court, here is my Lawyer’s statement as delivered on my behalf:
“Defendant’s Solicitor, Jeffrey Smele
On behalf of the Defendant, Mr. Gilad Atzmon, I agree with the words of my learned friend.  Mr. Atzmon never in fact intended that his article would suggest to the reader that Mr. Falter was a “fraudster” or that he personally profited from his position at the CAA.
Mr. Atzmon offers his sincere apology to Mr. Falter for his actions.”
(The official court settlement document can be found here.  The official court document that was the base for Falter’s claim, to which I apologised,  can be found here).
Contrary  to the exclamations in the  Zionist fake news, the court didn’t charge me with ‘antisemitsm’ or ‘lying.’  There was no mention of such words in the court’s ruling. In fact, ‘a trial’ didn’t actually take place. As proceedings evolved, I wasn’t willing to defend Justice Matthew Nicklin’s ‘definition’ of the meaning of my words. I didn’t agree that in my original paper I intended to accuse CAA chairman’s Gideon Falter of ‘fraud’ or ‘profiting personally.’  I saw no point in defending an interpretation that was merely attributed to my words.
But the issues raised here are far more complex. I wonder why these Zionist outlets see the need to engage in an intensive smear project that actually reflects very badly on the Jewish political project as a whole?
Jewishness is a sophisticated survival strategy. It is a strict regulatory system of adherence. It encourages internal debate but limits any such deliberation by clear boundaries. If Israel, for instance, deploys hundreds of snipers against unarmed Palestinian protestors and practically perpetrates a massacre, then it will allow a few of its people to speak out against its own brutality. The outcome is predictable: Israel’s war crimes are reduced to an internal debate among Jews. Within the context of the Jewish universe, every so-called ‘Jewish problem’ is met from within by Jewish dissent.
Jewish history reveals important exceptions — people who broke out; who decided to unveil the tribal matrix by means of universal thought. Jesus was such a character, he ended up nailed to the cross. Spinoza was another, he was punished by excommunication. Marx, in his early writing, broke ranks and pointed out on the intrinsic bond between Jews and capitalism. The 20th century brought about some Jewish heretics and to a certain extent I followed their path– rather than speaking ‘as a Jew’ and contributing to ‘controlling the opposition,’ I openly denounced my roots; spiritually, culturally and politically. I stopped being a Jew and dedicated my time to the production of a critical study of the tribal mechanism that drives Jewish politics and identity.
It has never been an easy journey. Since I launched my writing career, I have been subject to intense attempts to buy me out by recruiting me into the Jewish so-called ‘anti Zionist’ camp. Anti Zionists, as they call themselves, can offer a lot of support.  They are well connected and organised. They can set up your tours, concerts, talks, university lectures and media coverage.
It took me a few years to understand that my dissent was actually pretty similar to early Zionist thought, sharing its phantasmic idea of becoming ‘people like all other people.’ Indeed, my personal goal was to fulfil the early Zionist project for myself: to become an ordinary human being like all other goyim. I realised that to achieve my goal, the first step was to stop being a Jew.
In 2014 Professor Marc H. Ellis,  regarded by many as the leading contemporary Jewish theologian, published  Future of the Prophetic,  an extensive study of the Hebrew prophet. In his book, Ellis dedicated a chapter to me and my work. He reached the conclusion that yours truly is the new Jewish prophet.
“Like the ancient prophets Atzmon exposes Jews. At the same time, Atzmon believes that the Bible, from which the prophets spring, is bogus….Atzmon provides no hiding place for Jews anywhere.”  (Future of the Prophetic, Marc H. Ellis pg’ 332)
“Atzmon is extreme but, in his extremity, he is much like the biblical prophets.” (pg’332)
So in the world in which we live, some Jews see me as Satan incarnated, others have called me the last Hebrew prophet. Naturally, I was flattered by Ellis’ insight. And it helped me to grasp the role of the prophet within the Jewish survival paradigm. Making a dissenter into a ‘Hebrew prophet’ works to dismantle opposition. It reduces the universal critical insight into an internal Jewish exchange. I wrote to Ellis that
as much as I was thrilled by his view of my work, I didn’t see myself as either a prophet or a Jew.  Instead I saw the need to emphasise that rather than speaking ‘to Jews,’ I much preferred to talk about “Jewishness, Jewish culture and ID politics.”
My approach must have been frustrating for both Zionists and the so-called ‘anti’. Since the publication of my first book  (2001) I have been persistently harassed by Jewish ethnic activists of all persuasions (except probably Torah Jews). They have called me a racist, an anti-Semite, a bigot, etc. and yet, to their dismay, despite the strict legislation in Europe and America, I have never once been questioned by any law enforcement body about anything I have ever written or said.
I have challenged my detractors and those who call me a ‘racist’ and an ‘anti-Semite’ to point out where I have referred critically to Jews or anyone else as a ‘race,’ ‘ethnicity’ or ‘biology.’ I have vowed that if such evidence appears I will issue an apology and never write again. Yet no such reference has ever been put in front of me or anywhere else. Instead, I criticise Jewish ideology, culture and ID politics because I believe that ideologies, cultures and politics must be subject to debate and criticism!
I will keep doing this as long as the law in Britain allows. If this changes, I will either impose silence on myself, or leave London and move to a slightly freer city, perhaps Moscow or Teheran.
In case you want to support my legal costs

          Rescue Palestinian Children: They Are Trapped Too      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By Sondoss Al Asaad | American Herald Tribune | July 9, 2018
The entire world is fearfully following the latest updates regarding the 12 boys and their coach who are trapped in a cave in Thailand. Definitely, we wish them urgent and safe rescue and to shortly return to their families. A case that has stimulated scores of international activist and volunteers to rush and evacuate the trapped football team. BBC, CNN, France 24, etc. have all been covering the case all over the past two weeks.
These mainstream media are much concerned about the case’s aftermath psychological impacts on those children. They are focusing on the impacts on both the children and their parents. Absolutely, it is quite important to care for others and to offer every possible means of help but without double standards or hypocrisy!!
During the prolonged imposed war on Syria and particularly back in April, the same series of Western Capitalist spoke-channels and Imperialist trumpets have shown the same concern over the Syrian children after the alleged “Chemical Attacks.” Ongoing tears were released and many condemned a fallacious incident, merely because it was a Western promoted propaganda.
For instance, Banna al-Abed; a Syrian “ISIS-wood” star has emerged since the onset of the Syrian war to play an outstanding role in such fake “Chemical Attacks” comedies. The whole world has shown an unusual sympathetic interest in Banna’s case. She and her mother have gotten unprecedented coverage as she has been predicted as the legitimate regiem’s “target” along with other children.
Unequivocally, children have the right to safety, protection, health, nutrition, education, etc., regardless their identity, gender, religion, race or ethnicity. How come the West turns blind eyes and deaf ears to the heinous violations of children’s rights in our ravaged, colonised and impoverished countries? The question too is whether these mainstream media regard the innocent Yemeni children as children or as in accordance to its double standards “Terrorists”?
The same question applies to the Palestinian children who are purposelessly murdered on daily basis. Have these channels and the #Metoo campaigners heard about the 17 years old Ahed al-Tamimi, who has been trapped in the Zionist prisons since November 2017, unfairly tried and sexually harassed?
In Bahrain as well many children are trapped in prisons, denied the right to education, to access parents, to religious rituals or to fair trials. They are severely beaten and detained along with criminals and thieves.
The Western media must deal with our children as equals to as its other “beloved” children. Many of our children are also trapped in the imposed imperialist caves and thus haunted by terrible memories, suffocating and enduring psychological problems. They constantly witness atrocities, bombardments, inhumane treatment. Consequently, they are psychologically torn, disparate and broken.
Let the devoted activists all over the world exert effective and efficient efforts to immediately and urgently rescue the Yemeni and Palestinian children who are trapped inside the aggressive wars’ caves. Let them urge their governments to stop selling weapons which are used to end our children’s lives. Let them awaken the arrogant West in order to save our hopeless children and to deal with them as equals

          Netanyahu Regime Cuts Off Funds to Palestinians      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
When it comes to fundamental Palestinians rights, Netanyahu operates like a tinpot despot.
His hardline coalition partners ruthlessly oppress a long-beleaguered people unaccountably, Gazans suffering most.
Newly enacted Knesset legislation permits withholding millions of dollars of welfare payments made by the PA to families of Palestinian political prisoners and other families of Palestinians killed or wounded by Israeli ruthlessness – funds deducted from taxes Israel collects to pass on to Ramallah.
On Monday, the measure was approved overwhelmingly by an 87 – 15 majority. Knesset members are predominantly hardline, especially relating to Palestinian rights they disdain.
Joint (Arab) List MK Jamal Zahalka called the new bill “despicable,” adding the Knesset is “stealing from the Palestinian people.”
In heated debate, he called co-sponsor of the law Avi Dichter a “terrorist.” Ziofascist Islamophobe best describes him and most other Knesset members – militantly hostile to Palestinian rights.
Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeiheh blasted the new measure, saying
“(w)e condemn the law to offset the prisoners’ benefits. It crosses a red line.”
It’s “a declaration of war on the Palestinian people and a severe blow to the Oslo Accords,” adding “all options are open for the Palestinian leadership, including the International Court of Justice and the UN Security Council.”
Israel ignores international law and Security Council resolutions hostile to its interests with impunity – because of full, uncompromising support by Washington, no matter how vile, cruel or lawless its practices.
Over $330 million will be withheld, Palestinian money, not Israel’s. Taking it illegally amounts to grand theft – unrelated to the stated purpose, entirely related to forcing oppressive hardships on the Palestinian people, this action one of many.
PLO executive committee member Hanan Ashwari called the new law “nothing short of highway robbery,” adding:
“This is real piracy. They are stealing Palestinian funds. It’s not theirs to decide what to do with it. If we were free, we wouldn’t need Israel to collect customs.”
Freezing funds effectively steals them.
Israel’s grand theft measure follows harsh Trump regime actions against Palestinians, withholding vitally needed UNWRA funding, the agency providing humanitarian aid to millions of Palestinian refugees – along with freezing US aid to the PA entirely following enactment of so-called Taylor Force legislation.
It calls for withholding aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) unless it meets four unacceptable conditions:
  • terminating financial aid to families of Palestinians unjustly called terrorists by Israel;
  • revoking laws authorizing the aid;
  • taking “credible steps” to end justifiable Palestinian resistance against a ruthless occupier falsely called terrorism; and
  • investigating alleged Palestinian violence, publicly condemning it.
The legislation ignored Israeli high crimes of war and against humanity, its daily state terror against millions of defenseless Palestinians, falsely blaming them for Israeli crimes committed against them.
The Trump and Netanyahu regimes partner in waging war on people they want subdued, on fundamental rights they want destroyed, on rule of law principles they ignore, on democratic values they reject, on peace and stability they abhor.

The development of the browser-based version made Google Earth accessible to students who use Chromebooks as their primary classroom computers. One way that I like to use Google Earth is to create sets of inquiry questions based upon a specific location and or a specific view of a place. You can tell students the location and have them find it on their own in Google Earth. But if you are short on time, let's say your intent is to quickly start a classroom conversation about a particular view, then sharing a link to a specific view is the way to go. You can share that link in Google Classroom or any other LMS. In the following video I demonstrate how to share specific Google Earth views in Google Classroom.

Drawings can be added in the spaces between notes and or directly on top of images on your Rye Board. Watch my video that is embedded below to see how Rye Board works.

Rye Board is still in beta. According to the site developer's notes there are plans to add collaboration options as well as comment widgets. Once those options are added Rye Board could be a good place to host online, collaborative brainstorming sessions. Until then Rye Board could be a good place for students to organize their own notes or simply maintain to-do lists for themselves.

          A Complete Timeline of Elon Musk’s Fruitless Attempt to Rescue the Thai Soccer Team      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Thailand’s Navy SEALs announced that divers successfully rescued all 12 members and the coach of a youth soccer team from a cave on Tuesday. But before the the two-week saga came to an end, it had an unexpected subplot featuring billionaire CEO Elon Musk, who offered to lend his high-tech gizmos and expertise to the complex extraction mission.

The team went missing on June 23 when torrential rains flooded the cave they had been exploring after practice, making it impossible for them to leave. Two British divers found the castaways 10 days later, which triggered a massive rescue operation that involved 1,000 people and attracted international media coverage. Retrieving the team proved to be an incredibly complex task, largely due to the treacherous route the boys and their coach would have to travel to escape the cave. The path from the team’s location to the exit ran 2.5 miles, and certain stretches were as narrow as 2 feet–by–2.5 feet. Many of the boys were weak from their ordeal and did not know how to swim, much less scuba, and it took experienced divers around five hours to traverse the passage. One Thai Navy SEAL veteran died while trying to place extra oxygen tanks for the team along the way.

Musk began tweeting on July 4 about the possibility of getting involved in the mission. In response to a user asking the CEO to help, he wrote, “I suspect that the Thai govt has this under control, but I’m happy to help if there is a way to do so.” The next day he suggested that technology from his Boring Company could be useful since it “has advanced ground penetrating radar & is pretty good at digging holes.” He also pointed out that pumps equipped with Tesla’s Powerpack batteries could help to siphon water from the cave at an accelerated rate.

On July 6, Musk announced that he would be sending engineers from SpaceX and the Boring Company and continued to muse about possible solutions to the problem on Twitter, such as inserting an inflatable tube into the cave that would serve as an air tunnel or constructing “double-layer Kevlar pressure pods with Teflon coating to slip by rocks.” (Cave rescue experts previously told Slate’s April Glaser that additional high-tech pumping and drilling would not likely be of any use in this case.)

Musk ultimately settled on his approach on July 7, writing that after consulting with experts in Thailand he had decided to build a “kid-size submarine using the liquid oxygen transfer tube of Falcon rocket as hull.” The advantages of the submarine, he claimed, were that it would be light enough for two divers to carry and small enough to squeeze through narrow gaps. He posted videos of prototype tests in a Los Angeles pool a day later:

Musk was in the Thailand cave by Monday with the submarine in tow, noting that he would be donating the vehicle to the rescue operation.

The rescue squad eventually told reporters that they would be unable
