Wazzup Pilipinas!
UNITED FOR E-POWER: Undersecretary Benito L. Ranque, Head of the Philippine Delegation, and other participants make the E-Power Mo fist during the Capacity Building on Biomass Workshop on 3 July 2018 in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. The event is part of the 6th Power and Energy Infrastructure Cluster Meeting, which aims to promote the use of renewable energy resources, specifically biomass and biofuels. E-Power Mo‘s E-Diskarte principle encourages the utilization of renewable and alternative energy sources.

The Department of Energy (DOE) hosted on Tuesday (3 July), an international conference and capacity building workshop on biomass, as part of the overall strategy for sustainable energy development in Southeast Asia.

The workshop was conducted under the auspices of the Brunei Darussalam-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA), which is part of the 6th Power and Energy Infrastructure Cluster (PEIC) Meeting. This activity underscores the importance of biomass and biofuels as abundant indigenous resources in the region for power supply and rural electrification.

“It is fundamental to the country’s sustainable energy agenda to develop and utilize our indigenous renewable energy resources. This is vital to achieving energy self-reliance, strengthening climate change mitigation measures and ushering in socio-economic advancement in rural areas,” said Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi in his opening remarks that was delivered by Undersecretary Benito L. Ranque. 



Cusi further emphasized that renewable energy is key to progress. “It empowers more than our cities, more than our machines and more than entire industries. Renewable energy fuels our movement towards the rebuilding of this nation.”

The Philippines, Indonesia and Sarawak, Malaysia presented their respective bioenergy policies, utilization technologies and policy implementation updates to about 80 participants comprised of international delegates, local government units, national government agencies, and electric cooperatives.

The workshop enabled BIMP-EAGA Member States to exchange best practices, initiatives and experiences on the effective implementation of a bioenergy and biofuels program.

The event was also an opportunity for the agency to promote the investment potential of the Philippines, particularly in Palawan and Mindanao, given their vast biomass reserves and suitable plantation areas.

The DOE also presented the Biomass Resource Assessment, a product of the technical assistance program funded by the United States Agency for International Development in 2013. The study revealed that biomass utilization would yield a potential power generation capacity of 4,448 megawatts (MW). It would also reduce CO2 emissions by an estimated 17.25 million tons.

In July 2017, BIMP-EAGA PEIC conducted a similar workshop on solar energy utilization for rural electrification in Bintulu, Sarawak, Malaysia.

The BIMP-EAGA sub-regional cooperation initiative was established to help member states address social and economic challenges in remote territories. For the Philippines, the focal areas are Mindanao and Palawan.

Since the passage of the Biofuels Act of 2006 and the Renewables Act of 2008, the country has been implementing a 2% coco-methyl ester blend for diesel and a 10% ethanol blend on gasoline. In addition, total installed capacity for biomass is already at 530 MW. 



BIOMASS FORUM: DOE-Renewable Energy Management Bureau Director Mylene C. Capongcol (C), Assistant Director Marissa P. Cerezo (R) and Biomass Energy Management Division Chief Ruby B. De Guzman (L) led the open forum as panelists during the Capacity Building on Biomass Workshop on 3 July 2018 in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.


GO FOR BIOMASS: Energy Undersecretary Benito L. Ranque delivers Energy Sec. Alfonso G. Cusi’s message for the Capacity Building on Biomass Workshop, as part of the 6th Power and Energy Infrastructure Cluster meeting held in Palawan.

          DeWine and Cordray Differ on Plans to Fund Infrastructure      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The candidates for governor appear to have different approaches on how they’d pay for infrastructure, with construction costs going up and gas tax revenue declining. Republican Mike DeWine told a group of agencies that work with local communities that he’d appoint a blue ribbon task force to study how to best pay for infrastructure fixes, saying that panel would need to make recommendations quickly. And DeWine says if a tax hike is suggested, he’d be open to a candid conversation on that. Democrat Richard Cordray has a different idea. “Blue ribbon commissions are often an excuse for not being ready to lead or not being ready to set a direction in the state,” he said. Cordray says he’d go to voters with what he called a “significant bond financing package” for road and bridge repairs, improving the grid and expanding broadband. But he says he doesn’t have a number in mind on how significant that package would be.

Surface Tension

Surface Tension is a provocation to explore the forces at work on water, both real and conceptual.

Exploring the theme of water from material, aesthetic, cultural, political, poetic, and ecological perspectives, Surface Tension seeks to engage a range of topics integral to thinking about water in its broadest senses. These include climate change, survival, access, beauty, depth, gravity, networks, infrastructure, and more. The exhibition asks how the attributes of, and tensions within, water manifest within contemporary culture as both a physical substance and salient topic.

We invite submissions from artists and designers working in all mediums and formats. We are open to projects expressed in 2- or 3-dimensions, digital or analog, whether they be object- or concept-based. Deadline: all submissions are due Friday, September 21, 2018 by 11:59pm EST.

Design Unseen

Design is commonly defined as a methodical approach to the solution of a problem—yet there is no universal system for achieving a design solution. This exhibition aims to expose unseen creative processes, while asserting the value of design, which are often discounted in a culture that gives precedence to the end result. It asks whether process is as critical (if not more so) than a design in its final form.

We invite submissions from creatives working in the field of graphic design and communications. We are open to objects and materials expressed in 2- or 3-dimensions, digital or analog.

Deadline: all submissions are due Friday, September 21, 2018 by 11:59pm EST.

07.09.18 09:01 PM The crash of 2008 brought with it a host of strange economic paradigms rarely if ever seen in history; paradigms which have turned normal fiscal analysis on its head. While some core fundamentals remain the same no matter what occurs, the reporting of this data have been deliberately skewed to hide the truth. But what is the truth? Well, at bottom, the truth is that most economies around the world are far weaker than the picture governments and central banks have painted. This is especially true for the United States. One country has been pursuing an opposite strategy for many years now — meaning, it has been hiding its economic preparedness more than its weaknesses. I am of course speaking of China.

          With Anti-China Protectionism, the Left Is Aiding Trump’s Xenophobic Agenda      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Because China is increasingly seen as a threat to U.S. global hegemony, anti-China nationalism is on the rise in American politics. Late last summer, Steve Bannon spoke at the Council on Foreign Relations and discovered—much to his surprise—that his hawkish approach to China had gone mainstream. Early this year, Defense Secretary James Mattis, who is in what passes as the moderate faction in the Donald Trump White House, released the 2018 National Defense Strategy, stating that “Inter-state strategic competition, not terrorism, is now the primary concern in U.S. national security.” China leads the list of “strategic competitors” cited by the Department of Defense. In May, Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei warned at Axios that “China is the greatest, growing threat to America” and suggested that “a smart politician could turn China into a unifying villain on virtually every topic.” Earlier this month, the pundit Matt Yglesias appeared to agree, tweeting, “I’m sort of coming around to the view that anti-China politics could be the unifying national project we need.”


          An Insider’s Guide to the IPv4 Market – Updated      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

CircleID CircleID: This article was co-authored by Marc Lindsey, President and Co-founder of Avenue4 LLC and Janine Goodman, Vice President and Co-founder of Avenue4 LLC.

On September 24, 2015, the free supply of IPv4 numbers in North America dwindled to zero. Despite fears to the contrary, IPv4 network operators have been able to support and extend their IP networks by purchasing the IPv4 address space they need from organizations with excess unused supply through the IPv4 market. The IPv4 market has proved to be an effective means of redistributing previously allocated IPv4 numbers, and could provide enough IPv4 addresses to facilitate the Internet's growth for several more years while the protracted migration to IPv6 is underway. Although the market has matured since we wrote our last "Insider's Guide” in May 2015, some old inefficiencies and impediments persist and new challenges have been exposed.

IPv6 Migration Hasn't Solved the Problem

IPv6 provides up to 3.4 x 10^38 unique IP addresses — easily enough to support the expected growth of the Internet for the foreseeable future. However, incompatibility between IPv4 and IPv6 has hobbled the transition. Despite its generous capacity, not enough network operators and end users are actually moving to IPv6 to justify retiring IPv4 networks. By the end of June 2018, IPv6 traffic represented less than a quarter of the total global Internet traffic, according to Google's IPv6 adoption statistics. Migration to IPv6 is simply not occurring fast enough to accommodate continued Internet expansion.

The CGN Band-Aid

As the world slowly migrates to IPv6, some network operators are leaning heavily on Carrier-grade Network Address Translation (CGNs) to help mitigate their IPv4 address consumption while continuing to extract value out of their existing IPv4 network infrastructure. Carrier-grade Network Address Translation (CGNs) allow many endpoints served by a single carrier to share a smaller number of unique IPv4 addresses. But CGNs have considerable drawbacks:

Designing, procuring, implementing and operating CGNs give rise to capital and operating expenses invested in short-term solutions.
CGNs can frustrate law enforcement seeking to identify bad actors, and impede proper functioning of Internet security and other Web-enabled applications that depend on unique endpoint IP address mapping.
Extensive use of CGNs adds additional complexity to the networks that use them, and that complexity can compromise network performance, availability, reliability and scalability.
Industry experts believe end-point obfuscation caused by CGNs stunts the development and deployment of important Internet innovations such as IoT.

CGNs are not a viable long-term solution.

Workings of the Private Market

Meanwhile, IPv4 number trading between private parties is very active in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region. The IPv4 market has created powerful financial incentives for entities to free up excess inventory and sell it to organizations that still need more IPv4 numbers to operate and grow their networks.

The first widely publicized sale occurred in 2011 soon after the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) exhausted its IPv4 supply. Microsoft purchased Nortel's IPv4 inventory of 666,624 legacy numbers for $7.5 million. Since then, the sale, lease or other conveyance of IP numbers has accelerated. At the end of 2017, ARIN recorded nearly 39 million numbers transferred between private parties. In the first half of 2018, over 24 million numbers were transferred — putting 2018 on track to reach the highest volume of ARIN registration transfers ever.

Despite the IPv4 marketplace's success, it operates inefficiently. There are no established standards of conduct, little transparency, and even less accountability. Many participants in the market struggle to define, from a legal perspective, what is being bought and sold. Contract terms and conditions can vary significantly, often derived from other industries and not always fit for the nuances of IPv4 transactions. There are no accepted means to establish market value. Market trades are handled via ad-hoc bi-lateral negotiations. And total transaction costs (e.g., registry charges, legal fees, escrow account charges, and broker/sales agent commissions) are not always apparent.

Notwithstanding these inefficiencies, buyers and sellers who follow key market-proven tips and practices can trade and transfer numbers successfully.

1. Define Your Preferred Deal Structure Early

Before participating in the marketplace, both buyers and sellers should understand the specific exclusive rights in IPv4 numbers that can be conveyed, identify and assess the trade-offs of the available deal approaches, and select the approach that best fits their business objectives. For both buyers and sellers, flexibility is vital to maximizing the value of their transactions.

One-time asset sales agreements are common. But large deals can also include options, installment payments and phased delivery, and other creative, value-enhancing features such as allowing the buyer to pay a portion of the purchase price in the form of credits that the seller can use to offset purchases of unrelated enterprise services supplied by the buyer.

2. Select the Right Advisors

The burgeoning IPv4 broker industry is an artifact of the new market. There are a slew of brokers now offering services specifically to IPv4 market participants. This pool of participants will keep increasing. There are no meaningful barriers to entry for IPv4 brokers. There also is no self-regulatory or independent body to enforce minimal qualifications, experience or codes of conduct. Many (incorrectly) assume that brokers appearing on the ARIN, RIPE and APNIC facilitator lists have been vetted by the RIRs to meet minimum experience, skill and ethical standards. The RIRs do not perform any such vetting. In fact, they expressly disclaim responsibility for the quality or suitability of their registered facilitators. Consequently, assessing the qualifications and ethics of prospective brokers, and managing the quality of their performance once engaged, is critical to success for market participants.

Buyers or sellers planning to enlist the assistance of a broker, advisor or other form of intermediary should test the broker's experience and understanding of the industry by interviewing multiple brokers and researching the credentials and backgrounds of the firms' professionals. Getting references in this business can be tough; no one wants to go on record.

The brokerage or market services agreement should clearly describe when the intermediary earns its fees and when those fees are payable. The service agreement should also disclose whose interest the broker represents, including whether it receives any form of compensation or fees from other parties in the deal. Setting and documenting expectations up front will help avoid disputes down the line.

3. Perform Due Diligence

Immediately upon initiating trade discussions, the prospective buyer and seller should sign a mutual confidentiality agreement and conduct due diligence.

Buyer due diligence begins when it obtains from the seller or its broker the specific designation of the available IP address range. The buyer should verify that the prospective seller is an active organization in good standing by checking the records of the secretary of state where the company is organized, examining corporate credit ratings and, for publicly traded companies, reviewing recent SEC filings. Buyers should also confirm that (a) the selling entity is, in fact, the current registrant or a legal successor of the listed registrant by investigating the RIR registration records for the IPv4 space being sold, and (b) the individual purporting to represent the seller is authorized to act on the seller's behalf.

A buyer should require its seller to disclose material facts about the block for sale, including whether (i) any of the numbers are currently in use, (ii) any third-parties have made a competing claim to control the block, or (iii) there are any known inaccuracies in the RIR registration records. Buyers also may want to analyze the reputation and prior usage of the numbers in the available block. Thorough due diligence may involve even more comprehensive written questions presented by the buyer to seller.

Seller due diligence is less intensive but still necessary. Eventually, trades become public knowledge when the RIR registration records are updated. Many sellers care about their reputations and prefer to conduct business with organizations that have compatible values. IPv4 transactions are no different.

Sellers should know their buyer's business before proceeding to the contract phase, and should also establish criteria to filter out potential buyers with whom the seller will not conduct business as part of its go-to-market strategy. In addition, the seller's due diligence should examine the potential buyer's ability to fulfill the payment terms of the contract. This financial assessment will determine when it may be prudent to require an up-front deposit or employ an escrow as part of the payment terms. Sellers should also verify the authority of the people claiming to represent potential buyers.

Where registration transfer is a closing condition, examining the seller's prior transfer experience and its ability to successfully register with the relevant RIR the quantity of numbers purchased is important. For buyers in the ARIN or APNIC region, sellers should consider, and weight favorably, offers from buyers that have been pre-qualified by the applicable RIR to receive the block sizes in the deal. Pre-approval will alleviate some uncertainty in the registration transfer approval process.

No transaction is without some risk. The objective of properly conducted due diligence is to identify — before the agreement is signed — transactions that present unreasonable or readily avoidable risks. If due diligence reveals that these risks are within acceptable parameters for both buyer and seller, the parties can then enter into contract negotiations to fairly allocate reasonable risks between them.

4. Focus on the Terms and Conditions that Matter

The uncertainty or misperception about the legal rights attached to IPv4 numbers causes some buyers to define in their asset purchase agreements the rights they believe they will acquire, relying on their experience with traditional tangible property-based asset purchase arrangements or merger and acquisition deals.

Buyers, for example, seek guarantees that they will receive good and clear "title" to the IPv4 numbers. Recognizing that ownership of IP numbers is not settled law, sellers, who may otherwise believe they possess title to their numbers, should resist contractually overcommitting to convey title — at least until the question of ownership is resolved by the courts. On a related point, some buyers demand sellers represent and warrant that they will convey to the buyer unconstrained exclusive use rights. But IP numbers are part of the Internet Protocol, which relies on the operation of interconnected global registries, servers and networks. And any range of IP numbers can be used without constraint on private networks. Sellers' promises to convey exclusive rights in their IPv4 numbers should, therefore, be limited to the right to register in the RIR system, and use for Public Internet routing, the IPv4 numbers being traded.

Some additional key contract terms to focus on include:

Clear termination triggers that can only be invoked prior to the closing of the transaction
Appropriate limits on liabilities and disclaimers for both parties
Descriptions of any responsibilities and liabilities that survive the closing, and if some survive, for how long
Representations and warranties tailored for the manageable risks and conditions specific to IPv4 sales and transfers
Scope and duration of each party's post-closing obligations
Delineation of the duties, liabilities and costs that are assumed by the buyer once the IPv4 addresses are sold versus those that are retained by the seller
Terms that secure the transfer and payment (e.g., third-party escrow) for the in-scope address space

Ready to Navigate the Market

The private IPv4 market is evolving. It has been used effectively to redistribute millions of underutilized IPv4 assets, yet buyers and sellers continue to face obstacles. Market participants can achieve their business objectives by employing market-proven tips and best practices. Network operators that lack the resources or insight to navigate the challenges of today's market remain at risk of being competitively disadvantaged.

          China wants to be "keeper of peace and stability" in the Middle East      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

While pledging $23 billion in loans and aid, President Xi Jinping told members of the Arab League today that China would like to form a strategic partnership to become "the keeper of peace and stability in the Middle East, the defender of equity and justice, promoter of joint development, and good friends that learn from each other," according to the South China Morning Post.

Why it matters: As Axios' Erica Pandey has reported, China is determined to win influence in the Middle East, largely through its massive Belt and Road infrastructure initiative. And while Beijing has not been shy about developing economic partnerships in the region, Xi's comments signal a new level of political engagement.


The $23 billion includes...

  • $20 billion in loans to stimulate economic development in countries with reconstruction needs
  • $3 billion in special loans for sovereign funds
  • $150 million to support "social stability efforts" in the region
  • $90.6 million in aid to warn-torn countries like Syria and Yemen

Go deeper: China's long game for Middle East influence

Lissa,

Again, I voted for Clinton. I agree it would be better if she were elected. But unless you have a time machine, there's nothing we can do about that now. So instead of repeatedly saying that if Clinton had won, things would be different, why not start to analyze why she lost and what we can do about it going forward? Because saying that things would be peachy if Clinton won is A) not true and B) irrelevant. If you want to try the smae strategy again next time you will have the same results.

Rhizome,

What caused the USSR to collapse? Among many things, it was their attempt to both fund their massive military and also invest in social programs. Do you think it was a conspiracy theory to point out that the people who controlled the Soviet state in the 60s-80s were also the people who profited from it? The US is the only country in the world that can run such a massive deficit and still be wealthy. It has a deficit nearly five times greater than the next largest. This is not a problem like conservatives make it out to be with their worries about deficit spending- if they thought so they wouldn't invest so much in the military. It's not a problem SO LONG as capitalism continues to expand because the dollar is the capitalist world's default currency. This means all around the world, people invest surpluses in the US, buying their debt, trading in dollars, etc. I'm sure you know this. So think through what it requires for a second. In this unique situation, the US is also capable of investing huge amounts of money in both the military- trillions, with a military presence in a 1/3 of the worlds countries, by far the greatest arms exporter, occupations and regime changes and coups and election interference everywhere. I know damn well why they do this- it's because without doing it they'd lose regional hegemony in some places and the US share of control of global wealth would start to decline which would be catastrophic not just for US domestic economics but also global capitalism. While they are doing this, they are also investing heavily in infrastructure and welfare state programs- taxpayers fund both, both the military and the domestic infrastructure. It's impossible to pay for all of this - a very expensive state AND by far the greatest and most expensive military in the history of the world (greater than just about everyone else combined)- without running a massive deficit. Impossible. The Soviets tried, and it broke them. So this is all fine and dandy so long as capital continues to expand and the wealthy continue to invest their surpluses in dollars. Now the problem is that the rest of the world is rising too and now the share of wealth and places you can invest is likewise declining - simultaneously, corporations and the ruling class here in the US have been reducing what they pay in taxes and their investments in social infratructure and welfare programs. So people who are not rich are having to subsidize that wealth- you cut taxes on the rich and you give corporations massive tax breaks so that they continue to do business in your town but you still have to fund roads and schools etc- so now you are going to pay for that with property taxes and sales taxes increases etc. This is a requirement short term because it increases the profits of the very rich- they are the ones who LITERALLY (and you can't call this an exaggeration or a conspiracy theory) fund elections and lobby groups and influence legislation and foreign policy, and if you don't give them what they want, they will go somewhere cheaper- there's nothing corporate sponsored politicians can advocate for otherwise. Longer term, it's a requirement to keep dollar based capitalism expanding- first there was investment and growth in Japan and Germany then secondary states around that (Trump is trying something similar with KSA right now) and this requires fighting to maintain that hegemony. Then there was an investment in China. Now it's in the urban building boom. I don't know where they will go next. So all at the same time, you have 1) the share of global wealth that the US controls shrinking (as other states rise up), 2) the cost of maintaining what we have left is rising (military costs), 3) the wealth that is generated domestically is also at a higher cost, the very rich are hoarding more of it than they ever have since the pre New Deal days through regressive taxes and subsidies, and 4) the social infrastructure defunded and privatized more than it has ever been since pre New Deal days yet still requiring even more investments. The political class in this country is doing what they have been purchased to do- buffer these losses by creating policies that support the very rich to help them maximize their profits within this situation. There is no opposition doing the same for public infrastructure or people- we just eat the loss and fund the rich's. Neither in labor nor in any political group with power- you can't look at the recent SCOTUS decision about labor, the tax bill, citizens united, etc, and see otherwise. And so you have literally very rich people fighting for short term control of massive wealth because the expansion is accelerated and the need to for shorter and shorter term returns is likewise accelerated. It would be a conspiracy theory if I thought there were smart evil rich people at the top pulling the strings of all of this. Instead, I see it for what it is- unstable race to the bottom with very wealthy fighting over the last remnants of it for the purpose of short term profit. The rest of us have already lost.

Foreign policy is not a pet project. It's literally life and death for millions of people including people I know and love, and the cause of the massive refugee and immigration crisis around the world that yes obviously affects everyone's life here. What the US could do with those 'hard decisions' is not intervene. They don't have to carry out wars for regime change or interfere in others politics, and you can't make a serious humanitarian argument that US interference has helped- the histories of Central America, Southeast Asia, Middle East and North Africa demonstrate otherwise. So they could choose to not intervene. The reason they don't is that it another power would step in, be it Chinese or Russian, and accelerate the loss of US hegemony and share of global wealth and slowly but surely chip away at the unique position that allows capitalist expansion and the running of a US deficit. This is why both our corporate parties have the same foreign policy. The question is how you feel about living in a state that literally requires the destruction of millions of lives around the world. I have a hard time voting for that, and I see the urgency to create an alternative system, not just reform the one we have. I also have no idea how to do that, and I'm not sure that socialist projects will be sufficient. But at least they are advocating for the prioritization of the public sphere and the end to imperialism. As I have lived in other countries, including those that the US has destroyed, I can see what is going to happen. We are going to end up with some sort of corporate control oligarchy that sets trade laws and regulation policy and tax policy and that operates in pockets of wealth- people who can afford to purchase infrastructural services will have them and will be able to shop and have a nice life, and the rest of us will be outside at each other's throats. This is how it is in much of the world, only we have millions of guns and fragmented communities with already despairing levels of alienation, isolation and individual violence.

Now you were basically taunting me to explain a very complicated subject, and I have done my best. I suggest instead you read about it if you are really curious why so many of us on the left see this in terms of extremely wealthy corporations vs public sector.

          Oracle Recognized as a Leader in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Press Release 

Also received highest score for Global-Enterprise Use Case in 2018 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Identity Governance and Administration 

Redwood Shores Calif—Jul 10, 2018 

Oracle today announced that it has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Access Management, Worldwide1. It was also given the highest product score in the Global-Enterprise Use Case in Gartner’s 2018 Critical Capabilities for Identity Governance and Administration2. Additionally, earlier this year, Oracle was named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Identity Governance and Administration report for the fifth consecutive time.3 

Today’s advanced security threats require proactive and intelligent automation that can quickly scale with a rapidly changing IT environment. Oracle’s security portfolio provides a comprehensive set of integrated solutions designed to help reduce the time required to respond to security threats. Oracle helps organizations predict, prevent, detect, and respond to the overwhelming number of security events that challenge IT and security operations. Oracle employs a multilayered security approach that helps organizations secure their entire cloud, including users, apps, data, and infrastructure. 

“The rapid growth of users, applications, data, and infrastructure makes it hard for organizations to keep pace with the multitude of security threats,” said Eric Olden, senior vice president and general manager, security and identity, Oracle. “Using state-of-the-art machine learning and adaptive security, coupled with identity governance, Oracle’s comprehensive security platform is designed to help organizations protect data, including by limiting who has access to that data.” 

According to Gartner, “Leaders in the access management market generally have significant customer bases. They provide feature sets that are appropriate for current customer use-case needs. Leaders also show evidence of strong vision and execution for anticipated requirements related to technology, methodology or means of delivery; and they show evidence of how access management plays a role in a collection of related or adjacent product offerings. Leaders typically demonstrate solid customer satisfaction with overall access management capabilities, the sales process, and/or related service and support.” 

The Critical Capabilities for Identity Governance and Administration report gave Oracle the highest score for the Global-Enterprise use case. Gartner states that IGA tools “help organizations control access risks by managing user accounts and entitlements in infrastructure systems and applications enterprisewide.” The assessment highlighted 16 vendors. Gartner evaluated them against 11 critical capabilities and 4 uses cases. The capabilities were Access Certification, Access Requests, Auditing, Ease of Deployment, Entitlements Management, Fulfillment, Identity Life Cycle, Policy and Role Management, Reporting and Analytics, Scalability and Performance, and Workflow.

          An Insider’s Guide to the IPv4 Market – Updated      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

CircleID CircleID: This article was co-authored by Marc Lindsey, President and Co-founder of Avenue4 LLC and Janine Goodman, Vice President and Co-founder of Avenue4 LLC.

On September 24, 2015, the free supply of IPv4 numbers in North America dwindled to zero. Despite fears to the contrary, IPv4 network operators have been able to support and extend their IP networks by purchasing the IPv4 address space they need from organizations with excess unused supply through the IPv4 market. The IPv4 market has proved to be an effective means of redistributing previously allocated IPv4 numbers, and could provide enough IPv4 addresses to facilitate the Internet's growth for several more years while the protracted migration to IPv6 is underway. Although the market has matured since we wrote our last "Insider's Guide” in May 2015, some old inefficiencies and impediments persist and new challenges have been exposed.

IPv6 Migration Hasn't Solved the Problem

IPv6 provides up to 3.4 x 10^38 unique IP addresses — easily enough to support the expected growth of the Internet for the foreseeable future. However, incompatibility between IPv4 and IPv6 has hobbled the transition. Despite its generous capacity, not enough network operators and end users are actually moving to IPv6 to justify retiring IPv4 networks. By the end of June 2018, IPv6 traffic represented less than a quarter of the total global Internet traffic, according to Google's IPv6 adoption statistics. Migration to IPv6 is simply not occurring fast enough to accommodate continued Internet expansion.

The CGN Band-Aid

As the world slowly migrates to IPv6, some network operators are leaning heavily on Carrier-grade Network Address Translation (CGNs) to help mitigate their IPv4 address consumption while continuing to extract value out of their existing IPv4 network infrastructure. Carrier-grade Network Address Translation (CGNs) allow many endpoints served by a single carrier to share a smaller number of unique IPv4 addresses. But CGNs have considerable drawbacks:

Designing, procuring, implementing and operating CGNs give rise to capital and operating expenses invested in short-term solutions.
CGNs can frustrate law enforcement seeking to identify bad actors, and impede proper functioning of Internet security and other Web-enabled applications that depend on unique endpoint IP address mapping.
Extensive use of CGNs adds additional complexity to the networks that use them, and that complexity can compromise network performance, availability, reliability and scalability.
Industry experts believe end-point obfuscation caused by CGNs stunts the development and deployment of important Internet innovations such as IoT.

CGNs are not a viable long-term solution.

Workings of the Private Market

Meanwhile, IPv4 number trading between private parties is very active in North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region. The IPv4 market has created powerful financial incentives for entities to free up excess inventory and sell it to organizations that still need more IPv4 numbers to operate and grow their networks.

The first widely publicized sale occurred in 2011 soon after the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) exhausted its IPv4 supply. Microsoft purchased Nortel's IPv4 inventory of 666,624 legacy numbers for $7.5 million. Since then, the sale, lease or other conveyance of IP numbers has accelerated. At the end of 2017, ARIN recorded nearly 39 million numbers transferred between private parties. In the first half of 2018, over 24 million numbers were transferred — putting 2018 on track to reach the highest volume of ARIN registration transfers ever.

Despite the IPv4 marketplace's success, it operates inefficiently. There are no established standards of conduct, little transparency, and even less accountability. Many participants in the market struggle to define, from a legal perspective, what is being bought and sold. Contract terms and conditions can vary significantly, often derived from other industries and not always fit for the nuances of IPv4 transactions. There are no accepted means to establish market value. Market trades are handled via ad-hoc bi-lateral negotiations. And total transaction costs (e.g., registry charges, legal fees, escrow account charges, and broker/sales agent commissions) are not always apparent.

Notwithstanding these inefficiencies, buyers and sellers who follow key market-proven tips and practices can trade and transfer numbers successfully.

1. Define Your Preferred Deal Structure Early

Before participating in the marketplace, both buyers and sellers should understand the specific exclusive rights in IPv4 numbers that can be conveyed, identify and assess the trade-offs of the available deal approaches, and select the approach that best fits their business objectives. For both buyers and sellers, flexibility is vital to maximizing the value of their transactions.

One-time asset sales agreements are common. But large deals can also include options, installment payments and phased delivery, and other creative, value-enhancing features such as allowing the buyer to pay a portion of the purchase price in the form of credits that the seller can use to offset purchases of unrelated enterprise services supplied by the buyer.

2. Select the Right Advisors

The burgeoning IPv4 broker industry is an artifact of the new market. There are a slew of brokers now offering services specifically to IPv4 market participants. This pool of participants will keep increasing. There are no meaningful barriers to entry for IPv4 brokers. There also is no self-regulatory or independent body to enforce minimal qualifications, experience or codes of conduct. Many (incorrectly) assume that brokers appearing on the ARIN, RIPE and APNIC facilitator lists have been vetted by the RIRs to meet minimum experience, skill and ethical standards. The RIRs do not perform any such vetting. In fact, they expressly disclaim responsibility for the quality or suitability of their registered facilitators. Consequently, assessing the qualifications and ethics of prospective brokers, and managing the quality of their performance once engaged, is critical to success for market participants.

Buyers or sellers planning to enlist the assistance of a broker, advisor or other form of intermediary should test the broker's experience and understanding of the industry by interviewing multiple brokers and researching the credentials and backgrounds of the firms' professionals. Getting references in this business can be tough; no one wants to go on record.

The brokerage or market services agreement should clearly describe when the intermediary earns its fees and when those fees are payable. The service agreement should also disclose whose interest the broker represents, including whether it receives any form of compensation or fees from other parties in the deal. Setting and documenting expectations up front will help avoid disputes down the line.

3. Perform Due Diligence

Immediately upon initiating trade discussions, the prospective buyer and seller should sign a mutual confidentiality agreement and conduct due diligence.

Buyer due diligence begins when it obtains from the seller or its broker the specific designation of the available IP address range. The buyer should verify that the prospective seller is an active organization in good standing by checking the records of the secretary of state where the company is organized, examining corporate credit ratings and, for publicly traded companies, reviewing recent SEC filings. Buyers should also confirm that (a) the selling entity is, in fact, the current registrant or a legal successor of the listed registrant by investigating the RIR registration records for the IPv4 space being sold, and (b) the individual purporting to represent the seller is authorized to act on the seller's behalf.

A buyer should require its seller to disclose material facts about the block for sale, including whether (i) any of the numbers are currently in use, (ii) any third-parties have made a competing claim to control the block, or (iii) there are any known inaccuracies in the RIR registration records. Buyers also may want to analyze the reputation and prior usage of the numbers in the available block. Thorough due diligence may involve even more comprehensive written questions presented by the buyer to seller.

Seller due diligence is less intensive but still necessary. Eventually, trades become public knowledge when the RIR registration records are updated. Many sellers care about their reputations and prefer to conduct business with organizations that have compatible values. IPv4 transactions are no different.

Sellers should know their buyer's business before proceeding to the contract phase, and should also establish criteria to filter out potential buyers with whom the seller will not conduct business as part of its go-to-market strategy. In addition, the seller's due diligence should examine the potential buyer's ability to fulfill the payment terms of the contract. This financial assessment will determine when it may be prudent to require an up-front deposit or employ an escrow as part of the payment terms. Sellers should also verify the authority of the people claiming to represent potential buyers.

Where registration transfer is a closing condition, examining the seller's prior transfer experience and its ability to successfully register with the relevant RIR the quantity of numbers purchased is important. For buyers in the ARIN or APNIC region, sellers should consider, and weight favorably, offers from buyers that have been pre-qualified by the applicable RIR to receive the block sizes in the deal. Pre-approval will alleviate some uncertainty in the registration transfer approval process.

No transaction is without some risk. The objective of properly conducted due diligence is to identify — before the agreement is signed — transactions that present unreasonable or readily avoidable risks. If due diligence reveals that these risks are within acceptable parameters for both buyer and seller, the parties can then enter into contract negotiations to fairly allocate reasonable risks between them.

4. Focus on the Terms and Conditions that Matter

The uncertainty or misperception about the legal rights attached to IPv4 numbers causes some buyers to define in their asset purchase agreements the rights they believe they will acquire, relying on their experience with traditional tangible property-based asset purchase arrangements or merger and acquisition deals.

Buyers, for example, seek guarantees that they will receive good and clear "title" to the IPv4 numbers. Recognizing that ownership of IP numbers is not settled law, sellers, who may otherwise believe they possess title to their numbers, should resist contractually overcommitting to convey title — at least until the question of ownership is resolved by the courts. On a related point, some buyers demand sellers represent and warrant that they will convey to the buyer unconstrained exclusive use rights. But IP numbers are part of the Internet Protocol, which relies on the operation of interconnected global registries, servers and networks. And any range of IP numbers can be used without constraint on private networks. Sellers' promises to convey exclusive rights in their IPv4 numbers should, therefore, be limited to the right to register in the RIR system, and use for Public Internet routing, the IPv4 numbers being traded.

Some additional key contract terms to focus on include:

Clear termination triggers that can only be invoked prior to the closing of the transaction
Appropriate limits on liabilities and disclaimers for both parties
Descriptions of any responsibilities and liabilities that survive the closing, and if some survive, for how long
Representations and warranties tailored for the manageable risks and conditions specific to IPv4 sales and transfers
Scope and duration of each party's post-closing obligations
Delineation of the duties, liabilities and costs that are assumed by the buyer once the IPv4 addresses are sold versus those that are retained by the seller
Terms that secure the transfer and payment (e.g., third-party escrow) for the in-scope address space

Ready to Navigate the Market

The private IPv4 market is evolving. It has been used effectively to redistribute millions of underutilized IPv4 assets, yet buyers and sellers continue to face obstacles. Market participants can achieve their business objectives by employing market-proven tips and best practices. Network operators that lack the resources or insight to navigate the challenges of today's market remain at risk of being competitively disadvantaged.

          Global wars and insanity fast becoming entertainment      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By Mahboob A Khawaja, PhD.Global politics is fraught with man-made catastrophic tragedies. The human beings are supposed to be the most intelligent social animal on the planet. Yet, our proactive plans and actions continue to dehumanize the fellow human beings and engineer conflicts and wars that destroy the existence of mankind. The driving impulse is war economies, individualistic interest and militarization. We come to realize that politics is a game of pretension and always remains problematic. Politicians need problems to get public attention and to argue being the deliverers. Often, they are not except being treacherous, cynical and deceitful to their ideas and ideals and to the public interests they claim to serve.Amongst all the creations on Planet Earth, humans are the only one to claim morality as an attribute of life and value. This reality emphasizes and differentiates us from the other creations of God. If we propel uncertainty in our thoughts and behavior, nothing can stop us from surpassing the limit of immorality and insanity. With knowledge-based 21st century human communications improving global collaboration, we are not moving in the right direction that human logic and truth spell out for our conduct in peaceful relationships. The impulse and actions for cruelty and sadistic behavior are increasingly sending alarming trends for the present and future generations to be informed of our implicit wickedness and resulting failure in global affairs. As humans, we are not thinking or moving for the unity of mankind to be at peace and harmony being the chief creation of God. Unless, we are overwhelmed philosophically to imagine that we are something else than humans populating the Earth by chance. Global Institutions are a Menace to Human Change and Progress The global warlords are waging wars in the name of peace and harmony. Humanity is being crushed and its compound interest undermined by the few for economic greed and militarization. The UNO originated from the belief and commitment to avert futuristic wars by men of new ideas pursuing peaceful means, diplomacy and accountability to the global mankind. How sad and cynical it looks to view the succeeding generations entrapped again into the same mindset of warmongering and power politics as were the sadistic leaders before the Two WW. Like the past, once again few egoistic nations and leaders have manipulated the time and opportunities to dictate and undermine the interests of the mankind.  The global humanity is the net object of their planned cruelty but without any meaningful role to challenge the few global warlords.  America, Russia and few Europeans find freehand to go anywhere and bomb the humanity at will. This is what exactly happening in the broader Arab Middle East war theatre managed by global warlords. The UNO and its Secretary General need to free themselves from captivity and enlarge their role and initiatives for conflict management and peace-making outside the New York established box. Words and Charter's core thoughts are repeated but actions are missing. The UN Security Council could finally visit the Rohinga refugee camps but failed to demand equal treatment from the Myanmar Government. Strange, why the same UN Security Council cannot travel to defuse tensions and bring much needed humanitarian peace between Palestine and Israel. Could it shrink its inherent responsibility for the mismanagement of the Middle East conflict?   Humanity in Search of Proactive Leaders The 21st century global politics have not produced any new leaders of vision and moral integrity to imagine the universal phenomenon of peaceful change and futuristic developments. There are no global organizations managed by people of moral and intellectual vision and courage to serve the interests of the global community. Man is a moral and intellectual being articulating happiness and progress horizontally in peace-time, but when fear of the unknown, hatred and animosity attempt to govern the human consciousness, degeneration replaces human progress. America and some Europeans used to be the leaders of change and new strategies to envisage global friendship, co-existence and harmony of the mankind.  If political greed and egoistic interest are the supreme force, how could they serve the interest and priorities of the global mankind for peace and harmony? At best, many world leaders could best be defined as "hangmen" of the 21st century. It is a frightening trend for the present and future generations to imagine our time and role in human history. The Middle East - the Ancient Hub of Humanity - the Land of Abrahim, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad is being ScorchedThe continuing wars in the Middle East are fabricated and gone out of proportion challenging the human conscience and civilized values that once highlighted the human behavior in conflicts. Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Palestine and Libya are destroyed by political design. Do you remember the paradoxes of history? Do you recall what Sultan Salahudeen Ayoubi did to free Jerusalem and drive out the Crusaders from the ancient lands?  Do you remember how Sultan Salahudeen treated his enemies - King Richard and others even in the battlefield? Do you know that for ages the European feared Salahudeen - the Conqueror of Jerusalem? The contemporary Arab world is devoid of moral and intellectual leadership of any kind. They operate on a dead-ended scale without any role in global affairs. Jerusalem was not US property to be transferred top Israel; it belongs equally to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Under the UNO Plan, Jerusalem is an international city to be shared by all the believers. Yet, the puppet Arab leaders showed no moral courage to question President Trump for moving the Embassy to Jerusalem. One wonders why the Saudi King signed 250 billion worth of military contracts and gave 100 million to Ivanka Kushner when Trump visited the region last August.  It could well be witnessed by the raging sectarian wars in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and elsewhere. There is no coming of Salahudeen to rescue the entrenched Palestinians. After 70 years of Nakba, they still have No thinking plan, no leadership, no movement for change and freedom except reactionary emotional outbursts. When Jews lived with the Arabs in Spain (Al-Andulsia) for centuries, they were part of the Arab culture and advancements for the best of humanity. European mistreated Jews but Muslims gave them the best for their protection and participation in Islamic civilization. Look, what is happening now between Palestine and Israel. Gideon Levy ("60 Killed In Gaza And The End Of Israeli Conscience", Haaretz and Information Clearing house: 5/21/2018), spells out the present reality for Israelis to think critically:On the night of the Palestinians' slaughter, Zion exulted an embassy and a Eurovision. It's difficult to think of a more atrocious moral eclipse....The truth is that Israel is well prepared to massacre hundreds and thousands, and to expel tens of thousands. Nothing will stop it. This is the end of conscience, the show of morality is over. The last few days' events have proved it decisively. The tracks have been laid, the infrastructure for the horror has been cast. Dozens of years of brainwashing, demonization and dehumanization have borne fruit. The alliance between the politicians and the media to suppress reality and deny it has succeeded. Israel is set to commit horrors. Nobody will stand in its way any longer. Not from within or from without....If 60 stray dogs were shot to death in one day by IDF soldiers, the whole country would raise an outcry. The dog slaughterers would be put on trial, the nation of Israel would have devoted prayers to the victims, a Yizkor service would be said for the dogs slaughtered by Israel....The Israeli brain has been washed irrevocably, the heart sealed for good. The life of a Palestinian is no longer deemed to be worth anything.Towards Thinking of Future-MakingWe live in one Planet Earth. What happens across the globe or in the remote jungles of Botswana and or in the rugged mountains of Afghanistan or the bloody streets of Kabul, Damascus and Baghdad, it is vital to global interests and cannot be ignored because European or American television networks do not portray it. According to the Divine revelations, the Earth keeps record of all the human activities. The Earth is a living entity, not dead.  There were many powerful and unchallenging empires and nations in history. What happened to their self-perpetuated glory and triumphs except being part of the archeological record? To all concerned, their artifacts and deadly remains do tell the real story. Most were destroyed by natural causes but the Earth remains in-tact, not by the legislative power of any States of the UN membership but certainly by the Will of God. It operates and maintains balanced life for all regardless of ethnicity, color, creed, religions and nationalism. Should we not care how we live, utilize and draw lifelong gains from the Earth?  We the humans urgently need rethinking to reflect on our plans and behaviors how do we relate to Earth? It is an indivisible comprehensive relationship. The answer should help us to balance our life. When could this historic change come into being? If we realize to be One Humanity living on One Planet Earth, its imagination could affect and balance our thoughts and behavior. We must respect equal human rights and dignity of all on Earth. Do the Super Powers (powerful nations) have a sense of indifference and biased toward the colored and economically less advanced nations?  In its 2014 Global Thinkers statistics, Foreign Policy ("A World Disrupted: The global Thinkers of 2014") pinpoints that "something big requires a team rather than an individual...." To enhance global peace and to undo the continuing bogus war on terrorism, there is an urgent need for teamwork by all concerned across the globe. The teamwork if undertaken with unbiased mind and  without pre-conceived notions could usher sustainable change and a new beginning between those who claim to be at peace and somewhat superior than the ordinary folks and those who are fighting reactionary wars of freedom against insanity and catastrophic devastation of the human habitats. Under 'Advocates', the Foreign Policy notes:"The global thinkers herald causes often wrongly considered inconsequential or verboten. They support forgotten victims of sexual violence, protect civilian targeted in internecine violence, count casualties in the fog of war, and demand legal protection for world's most vulnerable migrants. Often these men and women, scholars, activists and religious leader among them- do this work on their own peril and pay the price landing in court or in prison in some of the world's most repressive countries. For all of them, however, the risk is worth the possible rewards."

          Envest Asset Management, LLC Launched for Investors to Champion Sustainability      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Envest Asset Management, LLC was created as an independent, fee-only financial advisor after recognizing that advisors and brokerages, alike, offering financial planning and investment management services are missing the critical components of sustainability, social responsibility, and governance. James Osborn Founder/Principal of Envest Asset Management, and most recently a private equity investor in the clean energy space, wants to dispel the myths that social and sustainable investing was meant only for large institutions, or those that wanted to sacrifice economic return for social or environmental progress.

“A single long-term investor could conceivably invest for decades, and for those that consider multi-generational investing that only spans longer,” said Osborn. He added, “Consider the impact that can be made from investment decisions during that same period. You can be prepared for your financial future and make an impact by investing in companies that are making positive social or environmental change.”

When considering a client’s financial goals Osborn said, “But don’t get me wrong. This isn’t just feel good investing. Studies have shown, including a very recent study by MSCI, an independent provider of research for institutional investors, that companies with environmental, social, and/or governance strategies show higher return potential and are valued at a premium when compared to their peers.”

Osborn said, “To take a page from Bill Nye, ‘So long as we each focus only on our individual decisions and their short-term consequences, we will act like renters, not owners of this Earth.’” Envest Asset Management’s clients understand that their investment choices can prepare them for financial success and, at the same time, force significant change through grassroots social, environmental and sustainability advocacy.

Spinning Silver  by Naomi Novik

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik



About: Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders... but her father isn't a very good one. Free to lend and reluctant to collect, he has loaned out most of his wife's dowry and left the family on the edge of poverty--until Miryem steps in. Hardening her heart against her fellow villagers' pleas, she sets out to collect what is owed--and finds herself more than up to the task. When her grandfather loans her a pouch of silver pennies, she brings it back full of gold.

But having the reputation of being able to change silver to gold can be more trouble than it's worth--especially when her fate becomes tangled with the cold creatures that haunt the wood, and whose king has learned of her reputation and wants to exploit it for reasons Miryem cannot understand.

The Poisoned City- Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy by Anna Clark

The Poisoned City: Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy by Anna Clark



About: The first full account of the Flint, Michigan, water scandal, an American tragedy, with new details, from Anna Clark, the award-winning Michigan journalist who has covered the story from its beginnings

When the people of Flint, Michigan, turned on their faucets in April 2014, the water pouring out was poisoned with lead and other toxins. Through a series of disastrous decisions, the state government had switched the city’s water to a source that corroded Flint’s aging lead pipes. Complaints about the foul-smelling water were dismissed: the residents of Flint—a largely poor African American city of about 100,000 people—were not seen as credible, even in matters of their own lives.

It took 18 months of activism and a band of dogged outsiders to force the state to admit that the water was poisonous. But this was only after 12 people died and Flint's children suffered irreparable harm. The long battle for accountability and a humane response to this man-made disaster have only just begun.

In the first full-length account of this epic failure, The Poisoned City recounts the gripping story of Flint’s poisoned water through the people who caused it, suffered from it, and exposed it. It is a chronicle of one town, but could also be about any American city, all made precarious by the neglect of infrastructure and the erosion of democratic decision-making. Cities like Flint are set up to fail—and for the people who live and work in them, the consequences may be mortal.

The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams

The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams



About: In the summer of 1951, Miranda Schuyler arrives on elite, secretive Winthrop Island in Long Island Sound as a naive eighteen year old, still reeling from the loss of her father in the Second World War. Although a graduate of the exclusive Foxcroft Academy in Virginia, Miranda has always lived on the margins of high society. When her beautiful mother marries Hugh Fisher, whose summer house on Winthrop overlooks the famous lighthouse, Miranda is catapulted into a heady new world of pedigrees and cocktails, status and swimming pools. Isobel Fisher, Miranda’s new stepsister—all long legs and world-weary bravado, engaged to a wealthy Island scion—is eager to draw Miranda into the arcane customs of Winthrop society.

But beneath the Island’s patrician surface, there are really two clans--the summer families with their steadfast ways and quiet obsessions, and the working class of Portuguese fishermen and domestic workers who earn their living on the water and in the laundries of the summer houses. Uneasy among Isobel's privileged friends, Miranda finds herself drawn to Joseph Vargas, whose father keeps the lighthouse with his mysterious wife. In summer, Joseph helps his father in the lobster boats, but in the autumn he returns to Brown University, where he's determined to make something of himself. Since childhood, Joseph has enjoyed an intense, complex friendship with Isobel Fisher, and has a catastrophe that will shatter Winthrop’s hard-won tranquility and banish Miranda from the Island for nearly two decades.

Now, in the summer of 1969, Miranda returns at last, as a renowned Shakespearean actress hiding a terrible heartbreak. On its surface, the Island remains the same--determined to keep the outside world from its shores, fiercely loyal to those who belong. But the formerly powerful Fisher family is a shadow of itself, and Joseph Vargas has recently escaped the prison where he was incarcerated for the murder of Miranda’s stepfather eighteen years earlier. What’s more, Miranda herself is no longer a naive teenager, and she begins a fierce, inexorable quest for justice to the man she once loved . . . even if it means uncovering every last one of the secrets that bind together the families of Winthrop Island.

My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh



About: From one of our boldest, most celebrated new literary voices, a novel about a young woman’s efforts to duck the ills of the world by embarking on an extended hibernation with the help of one of the worst psychiatrists in the annals of literature and the battery of medicines she prescribes

Our narrator should be happy, shouldn’t she? She’s young, thin, pretty, a recent Columbia graduate, works an easy job at a hip art gallery, lives in an apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan paid for, like the rest of her needs, by her inheritance. But there is a dark and vacuous hole in her heart, and it isn’t just the loss of her parents, or the way her Wall Street boyfriend treats her, or her sadomasochistic relationship with her best friend, Reva. It’s the year 2000 in a city aglitter with wealth and possibility; what could be so terribly wrong?

In this month’s edition of Business Insights, we provide an update of recent actions and events related to China and present highlights from SWANA's recent webinar.

A year has passed since China launched its ban on certain recycled commodities and reduced its acceptable contamination rate. In this month’s edition of Business Insights, we provide an update of recent actions and events and present highlights from the Solid Waste Association of North America’s (SWANA) recent webinar on the topic, “Beyond China: Building the Future of Recycling.”

The Realization That It’s For Real

In July 2017, China announced through a World Trade Organization (WTO) filing that it planned to ban 24 types of solid waste and recyclables, particularly post-consumer plastics and mixed paper, and would impose a 0.3 percent contamination rate (later changed to 0.5 percent) on other materials. Initially, the move was greeted with some skepticism given China’s heavy dependence on imported recycled commodities to run its mills and manufacturing plants and the subsequent shortage of domestic feedstock and soaring prices in China. However, in January and March 2018, the ban and new contamination standard, respectively, went into effect, and by all reports, has been enforced. In essence, it appears that China’s recent focus on cleaning up its environment and boosting its domestic recycling infrastructure has trumped its domestic manufacturing priorities and concerns. A recent Chinese letter through the WTO in response to U.S. comments would indicate that China is fully aware of what it is doing and its impact.

Scope of the Impact

China imported 16.2 million tons of U.S. recyclables in 2016, or more than 40 percent of the total U.S. recyclables exported (and more than 30 percent in 2017), and 13.2 million tons are now being diverted from China to other markets. As noted during the SWANA webinar by Susan Robinson, director of federal affairs at Waste Management (WM), WM (a good barometer as the largest U.S. recycler) shipped 27 percent of its fiber to China in 2017, which fell to 5 percent in the first quarter of 2018 and to zero in May. The U.S. domestic average old corrugated cardboard (OCC) price has dropped nearly 60 percent from last summer, though it seems to be stabilizing at $67, $66 and $68 per ton for May, June and July, respectively, according to RISI. In the case of mixed paper, it remains virtually worthless and increasingly has to be landfilled. On the bright side, PET, HDPE and metals have domestic (U.S.) outlets, and pricing has been stable. But, mixed plastics #3 to #7 in large part have no market. It is estimated that only 35 percent of materials out of a single stream materials recovery facility (MRF) have positive value, and processors have to pay to move 65 percent! The decrease in pricing has been exacerbated by the cost side—Robert Smouse, assistant director of solid waste for the City of Fort Worth, Texas (who also participated in the SWANA webinar) noted that its processing costs went up $50 per ton overnight from March 31 to April 1, as the city struggles to improve the quality. In large part due to the wide adoption of single stream, contamination rates now generally average in the 20 percent to 25 percent range; thus as noted by Robinson, every ton coming into WM’s MRFs contains 450 pounds of contaminates, versus the 10 pounds maximum required by China, and she also noted that processing costs are up 15 percent for WM on average. The cost side has also been impacted by higher shipping costs and logistical issues. The Solid Waste Environmental Excellence Protocol (SWEEP) compiled recycling data that Waste Dive has collected and concluded that as of June 2018, 34 states, or 68 percent, were reporting either a “noticeable” (24 states) or “heavy” (10 states) impact from China’s actions.

Recent Moves Sow Even Further Confusion

On top of the ban and the contamination standard, in May 2017, the Chinese government began to stop renewing import licenses, which further impacted the export of U.S. recyclables, and though China has since restarted issuing licenses, the latest round of allowed import tonnage is the lowest yet this year. In May 2018, it suspended all inspections of U.S. imports for a month, essentially halting U.S. exports to China for that time period. Although this was lifted, markets have again been upended with pre-certification inspection requirement flip flops. Previously, certain shippers had been allowed self-inspection, but apparently, this has been replaced with a requirement for third-party (Chinese approved) inspectors and inspections in U.S. facilities. Given the shortage of these inspectors (and their cost), compounded with the cost of space as loads await inspection, hopes for a second half fiber pricing recovery have dimmed.

Alternative Markets Pop, But Now Are Also Clamping Down

In the wake of the Chinese actions, alternative markets, notably India and several Southeast Asian countries, have received markedly increased import tonnages, but given the sheer size of the tonnage diverted from China, these markets have become absolutely saturated, with port constraints and rising pollution complaints on the rise. As a result, most of these markets are now clamping down on imports in various ways—Thailand has (temporarily) halted plastic scrap imports, while major Vietnam ports have put a four-month moratorium on all scrap plastic imports, and Indonesia now requires 100-percent, pre-shipment inspections for fiber. Although these countries are currently not expected to impose the draconian measures China has, more restrictions are certainly expected on a permanent basis.

Will the China Market Ultimately Disappear?

On June 24, 2018, the China State Council put out a white paper reaffirming its commitment to eliminating all recycling imports by the end of 2020. This is obviously in concert with the Chinese leadership’s desire to build its own domestic recycling infrastructure, especially as China’s middle class expands and the economy becomes less export driven. Several industry experts, notably industry analyst Michael E. Hoffman of Stifel, have speculated that the Chinese authorities are looking to force the emergence of a circular economy in China—a closed loop system, as a broader approach to long-term waste management skipping modern landfill for a combination of waste-to-energy and recycling. That would mean China supplies its own manufacturing feedstock from recycled commodities, and essentially bypasses a large part of the solid waste handling evolution that the U.S. has gone through. He notes that there is precedent for this on the telephony front, where China essentially skipped analogue and went straight to digital. Ultimately, the U.S. may have to wean itself off the China market completely. 

Glimmers of Hope

As has been noted by so many industry participants, events of the past year are forcing a reset on the recycling industry. First, as the thing recycling companies can most immediately control, there is a concerted effort to reduce contamination in the bale—both in the MRF process and through customer education efforts—“when in doubt throw it out”—in an effort to combat “aspirational” recycling. This is being followed by widespread efforts to change contracts to reflect the new reality, notably instituting processing fees and engaging in dialogue to make it clear that recycling is not free.

The need to build domestic recycling infrastructure in the U.S. is paramount but both expensive and time consuming. That said, there has been some initial activity. First, on the plastics side, there have been several announcements of investment in U.S. processing capacity to produce flakes or pellets (and even fuel), which are still accepted in China. More recently, there has even been activity on the fiber side. Nine Dragons is buying two paper mills in the U.S. to supply its Chinese plants, which again indicates the Chinese change is secular. But, more importantly to the viability of the U.S. recycling industry, Pratt is expanding its use of mixed paper with a new plant in Ohio, which is opening in the summer of 2019, while Green Bay Packaging, a paper company in Wisconsin, just announced plans for a green field paper mill using recycled feedstock, which would be the first new plant in the state in more than 30 years! Lastly, though not confirmed, there have also been rumblings about reopening mothballed plants, particularly in the Pacific Northwest, which has been particularly hard hit by the China actions.

          Havyard to design two new Royal Arctic Line cargo vessels      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Havyard 974 design

JULY 10, 2018 — Norway's Havyard Design & Solutions is providing the design for two new cargo vessels for Royal Arctic Line A/S, which has an exclusive license from the Greenland government to handle all sea freight to and from the 13 biggest ports in Greenland.

The vessels will be carrying temperature-regulated containers and general cargo and will be an important part of the infrastructure in Greenland.

Royal Arctic Line's license also entails multiple obligations regarding frequency, capacity and delivery of supplies for all towns on Greenland's west and east coasts. The two vessels will operate in northwest Greenland, placing stringent requirements on the vessels' design, as they will operate in a rough climate, sail in and out of shallow ports, and must meet ice class requirements and comply with the Polar Code.

To meet these requirements, the Havyard 974 desgn was developed in close collaboration with the shipping company..

"Our collaboration with Royal Arctic Line A/S has been very fruitful, and there's a good chance that Havyard will get more opportunities in this segment,’" says Senior Vice President Sales Gisle Vinjevoll Thrane.

The vessels will be built at Zamakona Shipyards in Spain and are scheduled for delivery in 2020.

They will take over from the vessels Pajuttaat and Vestlandia, which were built in 1979 and 1983, respectively.

The new ships mark an important milestone for Royal Arctic Line’s strategy to renew outdated vessels.

"The capacity of the new vessels will be much greater than the old ones." says Head of Fleet Management Anders Bay Larsen.

With a total cargo capacity of 60 containers or 5,00 pallets, each 67 m cargo vessel will have four cargo holds, all with different temperature zones, from refrigeration at -27°C to cooling at +4°C, in addition to standard compartments.

          Japan's flood woes still have a long way to go      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Amidst all the hubbub surrounding a trapped soccer team, Supreme Court nominations and idiot-Canadian music stars getting engaged to models, there’s not been much talk about what’s going on in Japan right now—and that’s a shame because it’s some very serious shit. Torrential rains battered the Pacific island nation last week, causing landslides and flash floods which, at last count, had killed at least 127 people and have forced the evacuation of millions. Many of the displaced have been able to return to their homes, but things are still really fucked up. According to Reuters, just about all of homes that lost power as a result of the storms have been reconnected to the grid. But the people in storm-affected areas are still pretty fucked. Temperatures in city of Kurashiki, for example, which was hit particularly hard, are set to reach 91°F, with high humidity. They might have air-conditioning, in some cases, but very likely don’t have easy access to potable water. Some areas are able to have bottled water, medical supplies and food trucked in, but a lot of the roads in areas strike by mudslides are just gone. The Japanese government has budgeted billions of bucks for cleaning up after disasters like this one, but it takes time to bring infrastructure back from the brink. What’s more, the worst may still be yet to come. From Reuters:
A new evacuation order was issued on Tuesday in one part of the western prefecture of Hiroshima, after a river blocked by debris overflowed its banks. There was no word on the numbers affected, but the area has already been inundated once.

          Everybody Needs Good Neighbors: Melbourne Moves into Community-led Housing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
In an ideal world, Alex Fearnside would cycle home from work, park his bike in the basement of his apartment complex in Melbourne city center, then jog upstairs through a beautiful courtyard to his flat, stopping only for a quick chat with other residents in the shared dining area. Later, Fearnside and his wife would head down to the communal kitchen to eat a meal cooked by their neighbors. Fearnside's 10-year-old dream for life in the Australian city is nearing reality as it awaits planning approval. It is shared by 50 other Melbourne residents who belong to Urban Coup, a collective that wants to turn a disused button factory in an old industrial area into a co-housing community by 2020. "What is driving us is we want to know our neighbors," said the 38-year-old environmental scientist. "We want to know that as we're growing old, we have people around us who have similar values to who we are and what we bring." Urban Coup is one of five innovative housing initiatives that put community at their heart. The projects are supported with expertise and networks mobilized by Resilient Melbourne, part of 100 Resilient Cities, a network backed by The Rockefeller Foundation to help cities deal with modern-day pressures. This year, more than half of Asia-Pacific's population will be urban, and that figure will increase to two-thirds by 2050, the United Nations estimates. But as the region's cities continue to expand, services and infrastructure are struggling to keep pace with rising populations and economic growth, while the effects of climate change have created additional challenges. The Melbourne projects aim to help find solutions to the city's expanding urban sprawl, worsening traffic congestion and growing social isolation - all of which can contribute to problems like alcoholism and domestic violence. And by building stronger community bonds, Melbourne should be better placed to recover from potential shocks and stresses, such as rising temperatures and droughts, infrastructure failures and potential pandemics, the schemes' proponents say. "Many of the people who started Urban Coup remember growing up on streets where they knew everybody on that street," said Fearnside. "We wanted a building that would enable us to know our neighbors and allow us to support each other." Urban Sprawl In the past decade, Melbourne has topped various polls as the world's most liveable city, attracting new residents to Australia's second-biggest city. Just under 5 million people live there, and the population is expected to double over the next 30 years, putting increased strain on infrastructure and housing. As more estates have been built on greenfield sites outside the center, the rise in urban sprawl has brought problems. Housing developments have outpaced infrastructure, leading to dormitory suburbs, whose residents commute daily but enjoy few services, amenities and transport links. That causes traffic congestion and longer commute times, as well as a lack of interaction between neighbors, experts say. "We live in a really beautiful part of Melbourne but we don't really know our neighbors," said Fearnside, who currently lives with his wife in a townhouse 5 km (3 miles) north of the central business district. In Melbourne's central areas, high-rise blocks have become more common in recent years. But as in many other Australian cities, first-time buyers and families have struggled to afford steeper prices stoked by overseas property investors. And much new construction has been driven by developers, which tend to put profit before the provision of leisure or communal facilities. On average, Melbourne property prices have doubled over the last decade, said Clinton Baxter, state director at Savills property agency in the city, and this trend is set to continue. Central government efforts to help first-time buyers include a grant for deposits and stamp duty concessions, while state governments have sought to open up more land and fast-track approval processes for developments. Despite this, the supply of new and affordable housing in Melbourne has struggled to keep up with demand. It is not uncommon to see would-be buyers camping out overnight ahead of a land sale to be front of the queue for their own building plot. "The state government has struggled to keep up with the infrastructure requirements for such a rapidly growing city," Baxter said. Living Experiment The five projects supported by Resilient Melbourne will bring together developers, city and state government agencies, service providers and potential buyers and renters. Each project is crafted around different community-focused models - some based on renewal of the inner-city and others starting from scratch on greenfield sites. The projects will also be part of an academic study. "We want this to be a genuine living experiment so that we can understand in deep ways what works and what doesn't work - and record it so the successes can be replicated in Melbourne but also internationally," said Toby Kent, the city's chief resilience officer. The projects backed by Resilient Melbourne include a greenfield site for about 5,000 homes led by developer Mirvac. It is working with local authorities to incorporate community aspects from an early stage. Besides at least one new school, there will be a town center with shops and a supermarket, and a hub to house programs and events run by the council or residents, with a community-managed cafe and playground, said Anne Jolic, a director at Mirvac. "Often people who move to some of these ... new housing (developments) will feel very isolated," she said. Melbourne developer Assemble, meanwhile, plans to turn an old CD and DVD factory near the city center into 73 flats. The property will include communal spaces like a cafe, a co-working space, crèche and grocery store, and is consulting with potential residents and existing neighbors on the design. When the final plans are drawn up, residents will pay a refundable 1 percent deposit to secure a place, said Kris Daff, managing director of Assemble. Once built, they will move in and start a five-year lease with an option to buy at a pre-agreed price, or exit the lease and leave at any time. Services and events on offer will include dry cleaning, apartment cleaning, dog walking, community dinners, walking groups and film nights in a communal room. "There is a huge amount of research that shows that when acute shocks have struck in cities, communities where there are existing connections are better able to bounce back," said Kent, Melbourne's resilience chief.

Excellent info !!! Thanks frankie111 and YES indeed, the elite are killing Americans and Brits whom they deem useless. The 21st Century Holocaust of the Elderly and those who would cut into their profits, including chronically ill children. People who are no longer able to be slave laborers for the parasites in high places who depend on the rest of us to feed, house, and give them 'life' while they tell us how good it is for us to 'suffer', have paid with their lives for these evil, sick, pathetic excuses for civilized men and women. However, all of this was planned out years in advance, as well as the stated 'remedy' above. Hospitals have all been updated and their infrastructure replaced or new additions added on. Many cancer units and children's hospitals have been built and paid for using other people's money. I expect the Catholic Church to once again 'take ownership' of most hospitals, (even though they've hid behind shell companies and still owned the many hospitals they claimed to have sold) and they will all be spanking new and ready to be controlled and profitable for them again. The whole birth control / abortion pill mandate was the 'scheme' that allowed them to pretend to get out of the hospital business because they're such moral and decent servants of the god they worship - not to be confused with the Divine Almighty Creator. Insurance companies are rich with the people's money again from both the bailouts and the investments they have made in the timed stock market, and the infrastructure projects overseas, and Glass Steagall in most of its original content was always meant first to fail and then make its comeback - a rebirth of sorts. IF Obama is held responsible for any of this fraud and criminal acts, I will be shocked, but who knows.....they always need one big scapegoat at the end of such a huge theft of a nation's people, and with all the hatred and race baiting going on in the media and social networks, the first so called 'black' president would surely piss off a good portion of the population. Unfortunately, it will also be the minority communities including other far left liberal groups and the LGBT communities who are and will be the target of the elites. History just keeps repeating...over and over again

          Geospatial Corporation Provides Pipeline Data Collection and Mapping Solutions in Permian Basin of West Texas for Global Energy Company      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Company Plans New Operations Hub in Midland, Texas

PITTSBURGH, PA / ACCESSWIRE / July 10, 2018 / Geospatial Corporation (OTCQB: GSPH) has successfully completed the accurate 3D mapping of several newly installed pipelines in the Permian Basin of west Texas for a major global energy company. To better serve the demand for accurate and economical pipeline location and mapping, Geospatial is opening a permanent operations center in Midland, Texas to serve the central states region encompassing Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and Louisiana.

Mark Smith, CEO of Geospatial Corporation said, "Our data acquisition techniques and software are extremely accurate and economical. We provide data for our client's systems of record that is traceable, verifiable and complete."

The Permian Basin of West Texas

The Permian Basin of West Texas and southeast New Mexico is known as the most prolific oil and gas regions in the country and is bountiful with supplies. Operators like Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD), Chevron (CVX), ExxonMobil (XON), Apache (APA), Occidental Petroleum (OXY) and Concho Resources (CXO) have announced multi-billion dollar direct investments in the region to increase production. "According to a recent report in Seeking Alpha, there's just not enough space in existing pipelines currently for the gas that is being marketed." Smith added, "As our clients invest in new pipeline infrastructure, it is an ideal time to gather accurate locational pipeline data."

The need to manage our underground infrastructure is being driven by a multitude of timely factors. The oil and gas industry with new regulations is charged with knowing everything about their pipeline infrastructure from the wellhead to the home. These requirements encompass every part of the nation's massive energy pipeline infrastructure from upstream, midstream and downstream.

About Geospatial Corporation

Geospatial Corporation delivers Locational 3D Data, Information Technology, Software and Program Management Services that provide a scalable solution to improve our clients' ability to securely, accurately and economically map and manage our global underground infrastructure including energy pipelines, sewers, water lines, conduits, and cables.

When Politics Trumps Economics

Stephen S. Roach




NEW HAVEN – With each passing day, it becomes increasingly evident that US President Donald Trump’s administration cares less about economics and more about the aggressive exercise of political power. This is obviously a source of enormous frustration for those of us who practice the art and science of economics. But by now, the verdict is self-evident: Trump and his team continue to flaunt virtually every principle of conventional economics.

Trade policy is an obvious and essential case in point. Showing no appreciation of the time-honored linkage between trade deficits and macroeconomic saving-investment imbalances, the president continues to fixate on bilateral solutions to a multilateral problem – in effect, blaming China for America’s merchandise trade deficits with 102 countries. Similarly, his refusal to sign the recent G7 communiqué was couched in the claim that the US is like a “piggy bank that everybody is robbing” through unfair trading practices. But piggy banks are for saving, and in the first quarter of this year, America’s net domestic saving rate was just 1.5% of national income. Not much to rob there!

The same can be said of fiscal policy. Trump’s deficit-busting tax cuts and increases in government spending make no sense for an economy nearing a business-cycle peak and with an unemployment rate of 3.8%. Moreover, the feedback loop through the saving channel only exacerbates the very trade problems that Trump claims to be solving. With the Congressional Budget Office projecting that federal budget deficits will average 4.2% of GDP from now until 2023, domestic saving will come under further pressure, fueling increased demand for surplus saving from abroad and even bigger trade deficits in order to fill the void. Yet Trump now ups the ante on tariffs – in effect, biting the very hand that feeds the US economy.

So what Trump is doing is not about economics – or at least not about economics as most academics, political leaders, and citizens know it. Sure, Trump has been quick to draw on some fringe mutations of economics – say, Arthur Laffer’s infamous back-of-a-napkin supply-side musings – but none that have withstood the test of time and rigorous empirical validation.

But why single out economics? The same complaint could be made about Trump’s views on climate change, immigration, foreign policy, or even gun control. It’s power politics over fact-based policymaking.

This should not be all that surprising. Trump’s battle with China merely underscores his eagerness – transparent from the start – to use economics as a foil in his pitch to “Make America Great Again.” Contrary to his bluster over unfair trade deficits, China’s real challenge to the United States is less about economics and more about the race for technological and military supremacy.

Indeed, the pendulum of geopolitical leadership is now in motion. China’s massive pan-Asian infrastructure plan, the Belt and Road Initiative, together with its muscular behavior in the South China Sea, pose far greater threats to American hegemony than does one bilateral piece of a much larger multilateral trade deficit. At the same time, China’s recent efforts to build the institutions of an alternative financial architecture – spearheaded by the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the New (BRICS) Development Bank – stand in sharp contrast to an increasingly inward-looking US.

Much has been written about the historical trajectory of great powers and the military conflicts that often arise during their rise and fall. This is where economics eventually comes back into play. Geostrategic power and economic power are joined at the hip. As Yale historian Paul Kennedy has long stressed, a condition of “imperial overreach” arises when the projection of military power outstrips a country’s shaky economic foundations.

It has been 30 years since Kennedy warned that the US, with its excessive defense spending, was increasingly vulnerable to such overreach. But then the would-be heirs to the US faded: The Soviet Union collapsed, Japan’s economic miracle imploded, and Germany became entangled in reunification and European integration. An unthreatened America plodded on.

China, of course, was barely on the radar screen back then. Moreover, in 1988 the US had a net domestic saving rate of 5.6% of national income – only slightly below the 6.3% average of the final three decades of the twentieth century, but nearly four times the current rate. Back then, the US was spending $270 billion on defense – less than half the $700 billion authorized in the current budget, which now outstrips the combined military outlays of China, Russia, the United Kingdom, India, France, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Germany.

Meanwhile China has ascended. Back in 1988, its per capita GDP was just 4% of the US level (in purchasing-power-parity terms). This year, that ratio is close to 30% – nearly an eightfold increase in just three decades.

Can power politics offset the increasingly tenuous fundamentals of a saving-short US economy that continues to account for a disproportionate share of global military spending? Can power politics contain the rise of China and neutralize its commitment to pan-regional integration and globalization?

The Trump administration seems to believe that America has reached a propitious moment in the economic cycle to play the power game. Yet its strategy will succeed only if China capitulates on the core principles of the growth strategy that frames President Xi Jinping’s great power aspirations: indigenous innovation, technological and military supremacy, and pan-regional leadership.

Like Trump, Xi does not do capitulation. Unlike Trump, Xi understands the linkage between economic and geostrategic power. Trump claims that trade wars are easy to win. Not only is he at risk of underestimating his adversary, but he may be even more at risk of over-estimating America’s strength. The trade war may well be an early skirmish in a much tougher battle, during which economics will ultimately trump Trump.

          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.

          Japan's flood woes still have a long way to go      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Amidst all the hubbub surrounding a trapped soccer team, Supreme Court nominations and idiot-Canadian music stars getting engaged to models, there’s not been much talk about what’s going on in Japan right now—and that’s a shame because it’s some very serious shit. Torrential rains battered the Pacific island nation last week, causing landslides and flash floods which, at last count, had killed at least 127 people and have forced the evacuation of millions. Many of the displaced have been able to return to their homes, but things are still really fucked up. According to Reuters, just about all of homes that lost power as a result of the storms have been reconnected to the grid. But the people in storm-affected areas are still pretty fucked. Temperatures in city of Kurashiki, for example, which was hit particularly hard, are set to reach 91°F, with high humidity. They might have air-conditioning, in some cases, but very likely don’t have easy access to potable water. Some areas are able to have bottled water, medical supplies and food trucked in, but a lot of the roads in areas strike by mudslides are just gone. The Japanese government has budgeted billions of bucks for cleaning up after disasters like this one, but it takes time to bring infrastructure back from the brink. What’s more, the worst may still be yet to come. From Reuters:
A new evacuation order was issued on Tuesday in one part of the western prefecture of Hiroshima, after a river blocked by debris overflowed its banks. There was no word on the numbers affected, but the area has already been inundated once.

Is there a bright future in the retail sector of India? 2. Why does Wal-Mart have to enter India with a JV strategy? 3. What are some factors that make it difficult for Wal-Mart to do business in India? Success Cases 1. China 2. Mexico Failure Cases 1. Germany 2. Japan Summary Conclusion and Recommendations 1. Market Segmentation 2. Marketing Mix 3. Management Policies Case Summary Wal-Mart is trying to enter the Indian market where there are a lot of market potentials. Wall-Mart is not entering the market alone. It is planning to set up shops in India in partnership with Bharti a leading telecom services provider. Although Wal-Mart is getting assistance from Bharti it has to overcome many obstacles. India is a very diverse country. India has 6 000 castes and sub-castes in 28 states. In India every community has its own tastes. So in India it is very difficult to meet needs of Indians who are from very diverse backgrounds. Also in India it has very different transportation warehousing and distribution infrastructure from Americans’ point of view. When Wal-Mart decided to enter Indian market it faced very harsh opposition from Indian retail chains. So to ease up the opposition Wal-Mart sought another way to enter the Indian market. Wal-Mart found an open backdoor forming a joint venture with Bharti to supply back-end supply chain technology and related processes. Bharti will handle the front-end of owning and running the stores which are likely to be co-branded. Media reports put Wal-Mart’s initial investment in the venture at $100 million rising to $450 million in a few years. According to a report titled “Retail in India: Getting Organized to Drive Growth ” India’s retail industry is growing very rapidly with a 5% compounded annual growth rate and has $320 billion in annual revenues in 2006. The report says that rising incomes and increased consumerism in urban areas along with an upswing in rural consumption will further fuel this growth to around 7%~8%. In the U.S. when people think of a big warehouse store they think of lower prices and small boutique stores have higher prices. However in India the perception is exactly the opposite the bigger store has higher prices; smaller shops can offer lower prices because their overheads are lower. Wal-Mart has to think whether its positioning of lower prices in the Indian market can succeed or not. Hill Charles W. L.

          Comment on Gas thieves remotely pwn pump with mysterious device by Wilbur      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Paul - you can't compare pump prices like that; you are actually comparing taxes, not the cost of fuel. Yesterday the cost of regular gasoline at the closest station to me was $3.49 per gallon, or $0.921 per liter (Google says that is 0.69 Pound sterling or 0.78 Euro today). We also have one of the highest state fuel tax rates in the country, as well as one of the highest pump prices in the country. The US has chosen not to place extreme taxes on fuel to pay for programs unrelated to transportation. With some exceptions, fuel taxes in the US are primarily used to pay for transportation infrastructure and administration. My state of Washington does not have a state income tax, so they do dip into fuel taxes for some unrelated purposes, but it is relatively limited Fuel costs are based on Federal tax plus state and local taxes. If our national fuel tax rates were as high as Europe's the national economy would collapse because of the cost of transporting goods and services. Just to make you feel better, a few years ago I saw a comparison of fuel costs (actual cost of fuel excluding taxes) and gasoline in the UK was actually less expensive than in the US. The rest is taxes. I'm sure your government appreciates your generosity.

@Ed Davies, While technological outcomes are difficult to explain even in hindsight, since it involves entertaining various counterfactuals, things needed have gone this way. There were <a href="https://www.wired.com/1995/06/xanadu/" rel="nofollow">once other ideas</a> like <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transclusion" rel="nofollow">transclusion</a>, perhaps impractical, but, in all likelihood, these wouldn't have gone well with the well worn tendency of netizens to eschew paying for anything. <em>Had</em> it happened, though, then a number of present day problems would have been solved: * People would be assigned immediate responsibility for anything they wrote, since it would be inextricably linked to a payment. * Spam would be prohibitively expensive to send. * The writers of better content, more widely read content would automatically be paid more for their writings. * Web drivel would hardly get paid anything at all. * The Russian attack and stuff like Cambridge Analytica would be impossible. * Denial of service attacks would be prohibitively expensive. There are practical questions to be worked out ... Obviously, network infrastructure would have be compensated in some manner. One can imagine the intermediate nodes intercepting transclusion micropayments and taxing them a portion, although it's not clear how they could be made transparent. Also, it's not clear how different modes of content would be differentiated ... Text versus video versus widgets versus games versus applications. Still that people like Ted Nelson thought hard about these and proposed these principles is a testimony to their genius. Now, of course, the Web gets paid for, but people are its product. And then, of course, they complain about being its product, expecting to get something for free.

          Lets talk about why China and the rest of the World is screwed. America is the true World Leader.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
An ANON puts it all in perspective: Follow me back to 1946. Europe is ruined, China is still a backwater. The USA puts together an alliance that allows everyone within it to trade goods into the US without significant trade barriers. This allows for Europe to export their way back to prosperity after WWII. It gives them room to grow their economies beyond what their somewhat depleted populations will allow. In addition to allowing the free flow of goods, the USA becomes the security guarantor of the free world by using our navy to police the world's oceans and enable low risk (and hence low cost) global trade. But there was a condition. In order to deal with the US, you had to be on our side in helping to combat and contain the Soviet Union. Essentially the US traded some of its economic/manufacturing capacity for increased security and strategic assets to assist in the cold war. Only one problem: We won. The Soviet flag went down in 1991, and we didn't really make any changes to the world order. George H. W. Bush tried to reinvent the system, and we booted him out of office after a single term. Since then, the people of the US have voted overwhelmingly for candidates who focus on domestic rather than foreign issues. The system limped along for another few decades, primarily because of the USA's massive demand for oil and energy resources. Enter discovered shale. The US has a lot of Shale and Natural Gas.... So much so that the US has become the world's largest exporter of oil in the World. Meaning we no longer give a fuck what's going on in the middle east. Meaning we can bring our troops back (Noticed the institutional outrage over Trump pulling troops out of Syria? This is why. They're terrified of the current world order collapsing.) To drive the point home, for the past half century or so, the USA has kept a naval carrier group in the gulf sea at all times in order to protect Saudi oil supplies. But more recently, the past few years, it's only been there about 6 months out of the year. We're done protecting the world and getting nothing in return, as you can see by the foreign heads of state visiting Trump. Shinzo Abe knows he needs America's help, so he brings a five hundred-billion-dollar investment for US infrastructure and manufacturing with him. Good play. Theresa May knows she needs America's help. so she offers to sail the Royal Navy's two brand new super-carriers with US fleets, and offers to share Intel from Britain"s Intelligence services, who recently had their budgets doubled. Good play. Xi Jinpeng ... knows America is not going to help him. So he put everything on the table, from IP law to the trade deficit to product dumping to North Korean denuclearization, all so we wouldn't go in for the kill right then and there. Best play he had. Angela Merkel doesn't know or doesn't think she needs America's help, so she shows up telling Trump "If you do this, it will be the end of the of Europe." And he hands her a three hundred-billion-dollar bill for services rendered. She didn't bring anything to the table. Bad play. So where are we now? As previously mentioned, the US is the least globally integrated economy by percentage of GDP. We're evolving into a global superpower with no global interests. It's not a Trump thing. It's a geographic thing. It would have happened no matter who won the office. But with President Trump it's happening a lot faster. When we leave the world stage, the world will go back to doing what it did before we showed up to save them in the war. Namely, fighting over breadcrumbs. No other navy on the planet has the ability to protect the world's shipping lanes, much less the motivation to do so. At current build out rates, the rest of the world's naval forces combined won't catch up with the US until 2263. China doesn't even have a blue water navy. meaning they can't operate long term outside of China's sphere of influence. If we stop protecting the ships that China relies on for food, and for oil, and for sending us trillions of dollars worth of dildos and $30 microwaves that break two months after purchase, their economy, government, and nation collapses. This is even assuming the Iranians don't initiate a war with the Saudis over control of the oil production infrastructure. Which they will if we aren't there to intervene. What's more: The US is the largest and wealthiest consumer import market on the planet, and since the Europeans forgot how to have babies back in the 70s, we'll remain so for decades to come. China NEEDS us to buy whatever they can sell, because they simply don't have any other customers who can buy as much as we do. And the money they do get from us is leveraged into shadow loans handed out by the Chinese banks to anyone who can promise employment. Not profit. and not a working product. Employment. Because if people have jobs, they're less likely to march into the capital and hang their politicians. Remember the Obama stimulus package? Eight hundred billion dollars, and all the corruption and wasteful spending that goes along with that kind of top down spending? The Chinese government loans out that much money every 17 days. And even that doesn't work anymore. The average hourly wage in China has octupled in the past decade. They're two times as expensive as Mexico now. It's no wonder factories are re-shoring to the US and Mexico. They know the end is coming. The smart money is already out of the country. They're just trying to make it end in a way that their country doesn't implode. They only beat us on trade the past few decades because we let them. We're not letting them any more. Globalization is over. Free trade is over. The rest of the world riding on America's back is over. Atlas is shrugging. And to any Europeans here, I'm not trying to be mean. I don't have anything against you silly people. But you can't expect a free ride to last forever. And you guys really. really shouldn't have stopped having kids. Once your boomer equivalents retire and you don't have the tax base to pay for their benefits or the young consumers to drive the economy, you're looking at decades of stagnation, spending cuts, and tax increases. Incidentally, this is why the EU is importing migrants as fast as they possibly can. Gotta have someone to put on the bottom to keep the pyramid scheme gong just a little while longer. Liberals are fucked..... Democrats are fucked.... Globalists are Fucked. It's MAGA time and its time for the USA to win. .... Forever!

          Belgium's golden generation falls short again at World Cup      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — Belgium's golden generation has come up short at a major tournament. Again.

With Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard in fantastic form creating chances for themselves and Romelu Lukaku up front, Vincent Kompany fit again at the heart of the defense and Thibaut Courtois standing tall in goal, these Red Devils racked up more goals than any other team in the World Cup. Through five matches, it looked as if they could finally deliver on their promise.

But with their King Philippe watching from the stands, there was to be no coronation.

After reaching the World Cup semifinals for the first time since 1986, Roberto Martinez's talent-packed team lost 1-0 to France on Tuesday at St. Petersburg Stadium on a Samuel Umtiti second-half header from a corner kick.

"Damn set piece, that's all I can say," Kompany said.

A Belgium team featuring many of the same stars lost 1-0 to Argentina in the World Cup quarterfinal four years ago and then was shocked 3-1 by Wales in the European Championship quarterfinals two years ago.

Even through the first 30 minutes in St. Petersburg, this side had looked different, carving out chances and containing France's counterattacks.

"We had more chances today, we had more control of the match," Kompany said. "We weren't in control two years ago against Argentina."

But the potent Belgian attack gradually faded as France's rock-solid defense handed Belgium its first shutout of the tournament.

Instead of playing Sunday in Moscow for its first World Cup, Belgium will be back in St. Petersburg on Saturday, playing in the third-place match and wondering if its championship window has closed.

Belgium's beaten players did not want to talk about the end of an era — not with stars like 27-year-old De Bruyne, 26-year-old Courtois and 25-year-old Lukaku in the team and more coming through the youth ranks.

"Generations. Who talks about generations?" De Bruyne said. "We are a small country. We can be very happy and lucky that we can have the team what we have. We don't have the resources, the infrastructure, the money that other countries have. What we have is a really good team that performed really well."

The last time a Belgium team got this far at the World Cup, it lost 2-0 to Argentina at the 1986 tournament in Mexico. A pair of Diego Maradona second-half goals sank Belgium that day.

Long considered the a lesser footballing nation than its neighbor the Netherlands — whose orange-clad teams have reached three World Cup finals and lost them all — this Belgium team has at least dispelled the Dutch shadow.

Kompany, an injury-prone 32-year-old who may well have played his last World Cup in Russia, believes that, despite the loss, the class of 2018 has done his nation a favor.

"Generations come and go," Kompany said. "For Belgian football I think eventually there will still be an opportunity to do well. It allows the country to be more ambitious and believe in its own talent. So maybe for the future we've still done something good for Belgian football."

Martinez didn't talk about the end of an era, but he was already looking to the future after the match.

"As it happens in any big tournament, you need to look at the younger generations and try to become stronger," he said. "From tournament to tournament, that's the drive and the ambition."

Belgium was left Tuesday still clinging to the elusive ambition of reaching a first World Cup final.

          Skepticality #058 - Back to the Tap, the truth about Bottled Water. Interview: Kelly Comstock, Environmental Engineer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Put down that designer bottle of H20!  Did you know that If you choose to get your recommended eight glasses a day from bottled water, you could spend $1,400 US dollars annually? That same amount of tap water would cost about 49 cents.  Wealthy nations like the United States have some of the cleanest, cheapest and best tasting tap water in the world.  The US is also the world's largest consumer of bottled water: 8.3 billion gallons in 2006 (about 26 gallons per person)! Will our rising demand for  bottled water harm our nation's aging water distribution and filtration infrastructure?  And why are groups like Presbyterians for Restoring Creation boycotting bottled water? On this week's Skepticality, Derek and Swoopy speak to Kelly Comstock, an environmental engineer and hydrologist who specializes in potable drinking water filtration technology, to answer these questions—and get to the bottom of the bottled water debate.
          Candidates for Ohio governor square off at same event      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Speaking before the Ohio Association of Regional Councils Tuesday, which serves more than 1,500 local governments, Democrat Richard Cordray, and Attorney General Mike DeWine found themselves at odds with each other on a variety of topics.

While the two never shared the same stage; they answered similar questions.

Cordray took aim at the state's opioid epidemic laying blame on DeWine.

"On his watch, the opioid deaths tripled in Ohio, that's a fact there's no wishing that away," he said.

DeWine responded, "Well it's absurd I don't think anybody thinks I'm responsible for the opioid drug problem. If Mr. Codray thinks he can convince Ohioans of that I don't think that will happen," he said.

Ohio's failing infrastructure was the topic many at the event wanted to hear about. The American Society of Civil Engineers gave the state a D+.

The group is concerned about not having enough money to make critical repairs.

DeWine said he would have a blue ribbon panel come up with ideas.

"We'll put together a group and give them a short period of time and do a quick assessment, " he said.

Cordray says once elected he will ask for and believes voters will approve a bond financing package to make needed repairs.

"Blue ribbon commissions are often an excuse for not being ready to lead," he said.

Attorney General DeWine says if he's elected he would double the number of task forces in the state to arrest members of drug cartels coming from Mexico.

Democrat Richard Cordray says if he's elected he would like to improve access to health care.

Both men agree more needs to be done to ensure high school graduates are job ready.

Everything is bigger in Texas -- so the saying goes, and on Tuesday, it was learned that Texas is tops when it comes to business, according to an annual study conducted by CNBC.

Texas ranked No.1 overall in 2018. The state of Texas also took the number one spot in the "economy" and "infrastructure" categories. The study attributes those rankings based on new jobs and economic growth.

In fact, since the study began in 2017, Texas has never fallen out of the top five.

Gov. Greg Abbott told KPRC that it's a great sign for the city of Houston.

Ely Air Lines
By Mike Ely and Linda Street-Ely

Linda: Last year we received a full refund from everyone we had paid for our Croatia vacation when Hurricane Harvey came to maul South Texas. Air France, Airbnb, even the ferry services and the Dubrovnik Symphony were sympathetic and helpful. Whenever you’re ready, we look forward to welcoming you, they all said.

I’d been so excited about the Dubrovnik Symphony that I vowed our future trip would be planned around it. And so it was.

When we decided to take the trip in May, the first place we consulted was the Dubrovnik Symphony calendar. Often, they perform in the atrium of Rector’s Palace, an intimate setting with, we’re told, amazing sound. But on Friday, May 11, the musicians would gather at the Museum of Modern Art and offer their beautiful sound in the open air patio. This would be youth night, where four outstanding high school students would perform solo pieces, with the symphony backing them up. We had second-row seats.

With a gentle, fatherly kind of smile, Maestro Noam Zur, an Israeli, stretched out his arms to welcome each of the teens in turn up to the front to play their piece. I thought of our Fine Arts Society of Liberty Texas and the scholarships we would soon be sending out. These Croatian kids, like the ones here in our area, are incredibly talented and I fell in love with the city and their symphony as I knew I would.

My sister, too, fell in love with Dubrovnik when she visited 30-some years ago, when the country was part of Yugoslavia. She told us about the old wall and the sheer beauty of the city. She was right.

Dubrovnik, the Pearl of the Adriatic, is a medieval city with a medieval infrastructure and street network. Fortresses, canons, and 13-foot-wide limestone walls have protected citizens inside since the 12th century. The walls have never been breached by an enemy and were about all that was left standing after the 1667 earthquake. We climbed the steps 80 feet to the top to join others from around the world on a leisurely 1.2 mile walk above the city

What a beautiful view! Red roofs on ancient stone architecture in varied shades of white, all built at different times after the earthquake, reflect the Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque periods. Massive monasteries and elaborate cathedrals attract. Shops and restaurants flank the wide main street of polished stone and are tucked into romantic, narrow alleyways. The gardens here would make any master gardener jealous. And the steps—oh, the steps! Dubrovnik is built on steps in an intricate and complex system of forts, bastions, casemates, and towers. We’re not TV-watchers, but they say a show called Game of Thrones is or was filmed here.

Lovrijenac Fortress, just outside the city walls, rises from a 121-foot-high cliff. Adriatic waves rippled in the harbor. Kayaks and sailboats dotted the seascape for a postcard view at any angle. Croatia has captured my heart.

          Dominic Raab: is he the IEA’s man in government?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The controversial right-wing think tank has long nurtured the new Secretary for Brexit and his “war of ideas”. What will this mean now?

Dominic Raab, addressing the Institute for Economic Affairs' birthday party. Image, Youtube, fair use.

As Dominic Raab steps into government, he brings with him a whole intellectual infrastructure. Where David Davis was essentially a lone wolf, and Boris Johnson looked like a blundering opportunist, the new Brexit secretary has always hunted with a pack: specifically, with a controversial right-wing think tank called the Institute of Economic Affairs, and what is effectively its parliamentary wing, the Free Enterprise Group.

The IEA is one of the UK’s most influential think tanks. Its representatives regularly appear on the media, advocating everything from privatising healthcare to opposing minimum pricing on alcohol.

The free-market think tank’s influence runs through a significant portion of the Conservative party, too. In 2016, new health minister Matt Hancock was heavily criticised after accepting a £4,000 donation from the IEA’s chairman just weeks after announcing a clampdown on charities lobbying advocated by the think tank. The policy was later dropped.

Dominic Raab seems particularly enamoured by the IEA. Speaking at the think tank’s 60th birthday celebrations in 2015 (see video below), Raab outlined how crucial the IEA had been to his thinking, and to giving him and his ideas a platform.

In 2009, before the Brexit minister was an MP, Raab wrote a bookThe Assault on Liberty: What went wrong with rights. The book was launched at the offices of the Institute for Economic Affairs.

In 2012, as an MP, he and his colleagues wanted “to take on this ludicrous, debilitating, anti-austerity, anti-capitalist narrative put out there by the egalitarian left in this country”. They penned a book together, Britannia Unchained, in which Raab’s line that British workers are “among the worst idlers” grabbed headlines across the press, but which was more worrying because of its proposals – a string of radical-right ideas, like for-profit schools, and abolishing a whole collection of basic workers’ rights.

Talking about the book later, Raab said, “it was the IEA which supported us in waging the war of ideas and launching that book.”

Dark-money funded think tank

The IEA refuses to reveal its sources of funding, regularly receiving the lowest rating for transparency from campaign group Who Funds You? But we do know where some of its money comes from.

The IEA was long financed by tobacco firms as the industry sought to avoid regulation. The group also accepts funding from the USA through the American Friends of the IEA, which was set up to allow US-based corporations and individuals to donate to the IEA. The American Friends of the IEA has donated more than $500,000 since 2010 according to documents filed in the US.

The IEA has also received more than half a million dollars from the US-based Templeton Foundation to conduct research in recent years. In 2014, the group received a grant of $155,000 to “seek alternatives” to “public, pay-as-you-go financed systems of pensions, disability insurance, healthcare and long-term care”, and promote privatisation of each of these areas, according to the Templeton Foundation's website.

The IEA was founded in 1955 as the UK’s original neoliberal think tank, and has been described in Andrew Marr’s History of Modern Britain as "undoubtedly the most influential think tank in modern British history".

The MPs who wrote Britania Unchained were all members of the “Free Enterprise Group”, a faction of Conservatives most of whom were first elected in 2010. In many ways, the Free Enterprise Group operated as the IEA’s parliamentary wing, with the two groups organising events and media briefings together, calling on the government, for example, to make it easier for bosses to sack workers and “reducing regulation and red tape” – which is usually code for abolishing basic rights at work, as well as protections for the environment and consumers.

Raab’s views have been widely circulated since his appointment as new Brexit secretary yesterday. Feminists, he says, are “now among the most obnoxious bigots”. “The typical user of a food bank,” he thinks, “is not someone who’s languishing in poverty, it’s someone who has a cashflow problem episodically.”

It’s important to see that these aren’t simply gaffes from some home-counties Tory out of touch with the modern world. They are the views of a politician who has been nurtured and promoted by a radical think tank, which refuses to reveal where it gets its money from.

In his speech at the IEA’s birthday, Raab talked about swimming on a beach in Brazil and emerging from the water only to discover that the current had quietly moved him hundreds of metres along the shore. The IEA operates similarly, he said, quietly moving British politics to the right, without anyone noticing.

But as a politician they have nurtured over a decade takes on the reins of Brexit, will voters start to pay more attention to the private interests secretly funding this ubiquitous think tank, seeking to quietly steer political debate in our country? Let’s hope so.

          The Brexit Plan That Could Bring Down the British Government – Explained      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Two years after the Brexit referendum, Cabinet members apparently agreed on the country's vision for its future relationship with the EU. But it has already led to a flurry of resignations.
<p>Two years after the referendum, the UK government briefly appeared to agree on its vision for the future UK-EU relationship. A <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploa... page document</a>, outlining the UK position, was published following a long meeting of cabinet ministers at the prime minister’s country retreat of Chequers on July 6.</p> <p>The new position aims to address the Irish border issue and potentially offers a softer version of Brexit than was <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/pm-speech-on-our-future-economic-... talked about</a>. It has prompted the <a href="https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-44770847">resignation</a> of three ministers. The Brexit secretary, David Davis, and his number two at the Department for Exiting the EU, Steve Baker, stepped down just 50 hours after the publication of the three-page document. This was followed by foreign secretary, Boris Johnson. Such dramatic developments raise serious questions for the UK’s Brexit strategy and the future of the government itself. </p> <p>So what was agreed to at Chequers and why has it led to these resignations? Davis stepped down <a href="https://ig.ft.com/david-davis-brexit-letter/">because</a> he felt the new plan cedes too much control to the EU. Notwithstanding, the new plan should be understood as only the starting point of negotiations over the future UK-EU relationship. In that sense, we should expect the UK position to further evolve in the months to come.</p> <h2>Previous proposals</h2> <p>The government’s new position has substantially evolved from its previous proposals for the UK’s future economic relationship with the EU. It has been dubbed a “third way” between the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-customs-proposals-laid-out-by-gov... proposals</a> that the government published in August 2017.</p> <p>The first was a highly streamlined customs arrangement that came to be known as <a href="https://theconversation.com/can-technology-and-max-fac-solve-the-irish-b...“max-fac”</a> (short for maximum facilitation). It aimed to simplify the UK’s customs arrangement with the EU by using a variety of IT solutions to avoid a customs border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. Jon Thompson, head of HM Revenue and Customs <a href="https://www.ft.com/content/2f0d89f2-6011-11e8-ad91-e01af256df68">estimat... that the cost of building the necessary infrastructure for this option would be about £20 billion.</p> <p>According to the second model, a new customs partnership, the UK would mirror “the EU’s requirements for imports from the rest of the world” as if the UK was still a member of the EU’s customs union. The UK, under this model, would still be free to pursue its independent trade policy. </p> <p>This could potentially lead to differences in its tariffs with the EU ones. To deal with this problem, an unprecedented and untested repayment mechanism was proposed. According to it, imports to the UK would pay whichever was the higher of the UK’s or the EU’s tariff rates and traders would claim “a refund for the difference between the two when the goods were sold to an end user in the country charging lower tariffs”.</p> <p>Apart from the cost and the feasibility, the biggest problem of the previous two proposals was that neither of them addressed effectively <a href="https://theconversation.com/backstop-option-for-irish-border-after-brexi... Irish border conundrum</a>. Neither could secure a frictionless, invisible border, given that the UK’s intention is to leave the single market and the customs union after Brexit.</p> <h2>The new proposal</h2> <p>As the UK government had <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/technical-note-on-temporary-c... conceded</a>, upholding its Irish border commitments required regulatory alignment. Without the same regulatory standards on the two sides of the border, checks would be required on the various products that would be crossing it to ensure the integrity of the single market. </p> <p>This is why the new plan proposes to establish a free trade area for goods between the UK and the EU where “a common rulebook for all goods including agri-food” will exist. The UK will commit, by international agreement, “to ongoing harmonisation with EU rules on goods”. This echoes the <a href="http://www.skoutaris.eu/blog/2016/8/2/the-day-after-the-referendum-befor... of the European Economic Area whose members have to adopt the new or reformed regulations that the EU institutions produce. </p> <p>At the same time, the government contends that parliament can guard the UK legal order from future EU legislation in an arrangement that somehow resembles the EU’s relationship with Switzerland. Given the <a href="https://www.politico.eu/article/eu-switzerland-stuck-on-immigration-free... crisis</a> in EU-Switzerland relations over the issue of free movement of people, the UK government is right to recognise that such action might lead to unforeseen consequences. At the same time, it effectively <a href="https://www.theguardian.com/politics/live/2018/jul/09/david-davis-resign... into question</a> whether the UK parliament would have real power to diverge from EU regulations on goods. </p> <h2>The starting point of negotiations</h2> <p>The latest proposal, which came out of Chequers is not the <a href="https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2018/07/08/britain-has-put-forward-... end state</a> of the future UK-EU relationship, as some have suggested. </p> <p>But even if the resignations of Britain’s main negotiator and the foreign secretary do not lead to a political crisis, the Chequers deal should be understood as the UK starting position in its negotiations with the EU.</p> <p>The Chequers proposal does not sit comfortably with the models for the EU-UK relationship that the EU has already suggested. It is not a Canada-style free trade agreement with the Northern Ireland <a href="https://ec.europa.eu/commission/sites/beta-political/files/draft_withdra... option</a>. Nor is it an economic relationship that allows the application of all four fundamental freedoms of movement, as <a href="https://theconversation.com/is-brexit-a-good-idea-lessons-from-norway-on... “Norway” option</a> does. </p> <p>Still, it is the first comprehensive position that the UK has put forward. So the UK will be hoping that the EU will consider it. </p> <p><img src="https://counter.theconversation.com/content/99607/count.gif?distributor=... alt="The Conversation" width="1" height="1" />Even if the EU does not reject the UK position outright, the government should expect that issues such as its contribution to the new EU budget and the role of the European Court of Justice are raised and seriously considered in the months to come. This is still only the beginning of the process that will hopefully lead to an orderly Brexit and mutually beneficial future with the EU.</p> <p><span><a href="https://theconversation.com/profiles/nikos-skoutaris-449841">Nikos Skoutaris</a>, Lecturer in European Union Law, School of Law, <em><a href="http://theconversation.com/institutions/university-of-east-anglia-1268">... of East Anglia</a></em></span></p> <p>This article was originally published on <a href="http://theconversation.com">The Conversation</a>.

          Oversight and Efficiency in Public Projects: A Regression Discontinuity Analysis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Eduard Calvo, Ruomeng Cui and Juan Camilo Serpa

Publication: Management Science, Forthcoming

Abstract:

In the U.S., four in ten public infrastructure projects report delays or cost overruns. To tackle this problem, regulators often scrutinize the project contractor’s operations. We investigate the causal effect of government oversight on project efficiency by gleaning 262,857 projects that span seventy-one U.S. federal agencies and 54,739 contractors. Our identification strategy exploits a regulatory bylaw: if a project’s anticipated budget exceeds a threshold value, the contractor’s operations are subject to surveillance from independent procurement officers; otherwise, these operational checks are waived. Using a regression discontinuity design, we find that oversight is obstructive to the project’s operations, especially when the contractor (i) has no prior experience in public projects, (ii) is paid with a fixed-price contract that includes performance-based incentives, and (iii) performs a labor-intensive task. In contrast, oversight is least obstructive — or beneficial — when the contractor (i) is experienced, (ii) is paid with a time-and-materials contract, and (iii) performs a machine-intensive task.

          Sen. Schumer gets CDC to fund tractor protection equipment rebates through 2019, will push for long-term funding      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Press release:

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer today announced that following his push, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has agreed to administratively provide funding for the work being done nationwide, including the Northeast Center For Occupational Safety And Health For Agriculture, Forestry And Fishing (NEC), on the national tractor rollover protection systems (ROPS) rebate program through the end of FY2019.

Schumer, who has long advocated for the ROPS program, said today’s announcement is welcomed news for thousands of Upstate farmers. Schumer lauded the CDC for funding the ROPS program and said it is a vital program, considering that farm-related deaths are up to 800 percent higher than many other major industries, with tractor overturns being their most frequent cause at a rate of 96 cases per year.

“ROPS is a critical and cost-effective rebate program that provides important information to farmers across the country on how to find and install the right rollover bar for their machinery. The CDC’s decision to provide funding administratively for this lifesaving program is a great first step, but I won’t rest until I know for certain it will still be fully operational for years to come.

"I vow to continue working with the CDC to ensure our agricultural community has every available resource to succeed,” Senator Schumer said.

The ROPS program facilitates rebates in states with state-based funding to farmers to cover approximately 70 percent of the cost for a farmer to install a ROPS roll bar retrofit kit on their tractor. According to Schumer, the original grant funding for this important program was slated to expire in September, but following a major push by Schumer, the program will be funded for at least another year.

“Keeping family farmers and farm workers who operate dangerous machinery safe must be a major priority, especially in Upstate New York, where the agricultural community is our lifeblood. That is why I laud the CDC for restoring funding for this critical farm safety program,” Schumer added. “The work done by organizations like the NEC is exactly the type of work the federal government should be investing in: it’s cost-effective, informed by real industry experts, and helps save farmers’ lives every day.

"Funding this program means that Upstate New York Farmers will have continued access to valuable critical resources including a 1-800 safety hotline number and on the ground experts in rural communities to help farmers access the ROPS Rebate Program, which helps them correctly install rollover bars on their tractors just in case the tractor flips over.

"I’m proud of the role I played in helping secure funding for the ROPS program to plow forward and will be doing everything possible to make sure this program, which puts farmers first, is protected for years to come.”

According to NEC Director, Julie Sorensen, Ph.D., the program has also been considerably cost effective with recent economic assessments pointing to a $5 million savings in NY State due to deaths and injuries averted through the program.

“Before this program, many NY farmers had neither the money nor the time to invest in these crucial lifesaving devices and unfortunately their only viable solution prior to the ROPS program was to routinely put their lives at risk hoping this wouldn’t be their day to die on the job," Sorensen said. "Senator Schumer’s advocacy sends a clear message to farmers -- you are important and valued members of the New York community.”

Schumer said the agricultural community is the lifeblood of Upstate New York, and that protecting the well-being and safety of farmers must be a major priority. In response to the hazardous environment of working on a farm, the Northeast Center For Occupational Safety And Health For Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing launched an effort to create the life-saving ROPS Rebate Program, which covers approximately 70 percent of the cost for a farmer to install a ROPS rollbar kit on their tractor.

In most cases, this means farmers only pay $500 or less for this life-saving equipment that can otherwise cost up to $1,200. NEC also provides information to farmers throughout the country on how to find and install the right rollover bar. Since its inception in 2006, the NEC reports that more than 2,150 tractors have been retrofitted with protective structures in seven states, with more than 1,500 of those retrofits occurring in New York State alone.

Farmers throughout the country benefit from the hotline and administrative support that is provided through CDC funding. Furthermore, Schumer said, participants in New York reported 221 close calls and 19 serious incidents in which death or injury was likely without the protective ROPS structures.

Schumer said now that the CDC has agreed to administratively fund the program, critical outreach and infrastructure surrounding the ROPS program can continue and grow. Schumer lauded the CDC and vowed to do everything possible to ensure that the CDC administratively funds the program now and in the future so that the inroads the ROPS program has made can continue beyond 2020.

Virginia, the budgets have been slashed so much that 65% is much less than what it appears to support, with the same amount of infrastructure. The county way is to slash the budget if there is a short fall, hire less, provide less and the results are evident with every building and road deteriorating. Much of Milwaukee Co, is mismanaged by an old boys club that has been running the county for decades. Before we start calling on the tax payers to contribute more, we need to make sure the right people are in place to spend that money.

"Over it,"' Milwaukee County Parks already does garner the lion’s share of its operating budget (about 65%) from revenue derived from fees, rentals, concessions and such. That's among the highest for any metropolitan park systems, according to the Trust for Public Land, which analyzes and publishes comparable data for 100 largest U.S. cities through its ParkScore. Milwaukee County Parks already has had a chief of Business and Recreation Services for quite a while and recently hired a development coordinator to help fund raise in various ways. Also, there are 50-some parks friends groups, most of which operate under the umbrella of the nonprofit Park People, which is several decades old. Just within Milwaukee's city limits, last year parks volunteers contributed labor valued at $5 million. Several friends groups raise hundreds of thousands annually. ' https://shepherdexpress.com/news/features/milwaukee-county-parks-at-a-crossroads/ Q to Michael (#2). What is the basis for your assertion about capital spending for parks’ parking lot surfacing? Is that for one year (2018?) Recent capital projects have covered trail expansion, new or upgraded pavilions, golf course clubhouses, restrooms, and picnic shelters; and infrastructure projects involving bridges, removal of concrete from river beds, roadway projects and more.

Efforts to protect nature are facing a growing crisis, one that often revolves around the burgeoning impacts of roads and other infrastructure on biodiversity and ecosystems. Potential solutions are possible but they will involve serious trade-offs and the confrontation of deep misconceptions. Here, I identify some time-critical tactics to aid scientists in informing and influencing the global infrastructure debate.

          President's Voice - Advocating for Issues Important to You      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

By Kevin Paap,

MFBF President

 

Advocating for Issues Important to You 

Many times when I’m at our local café, I get asked “What is my Farm Bureau dues doing for me today?” That is always a great question to answer, because your Farm Bureau is always doing something at the local, state, national or international level. I would like to highlight “a few” things on the national level.

But first, a little background. The day after the 99th Annual Meeting Delegates Session where 353 Farm Bureau leaders determined our policy last January, the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) Board of Directors identified and approved our strategic action plan for the upcoming year.

 

Focus Areas

The four top issues are 1) Enacting a farm bill in the 115th Congress that benefits farmers and ranchers, rural communities and food security; 2) Enacting immigration reform in the 115th Congress that helps meet farmers’ and ranchers’ labor needs; 3) Working for regulatory reform to ensure that federal rules are limited to what is necessary, are supported by science, appropriately balance costs and benefits, are clearly authorized by law, are created in a transparent manner, and allow our members to remain productive; and 4) Defend and expand trade opportunities for U.S. agriculture.

 

We also identified three additional watch-list issues that we monitor for developments that warrant increased strategic planning, collaboration and action. They are: 1) Ensuring we have an energy policy that enhances the availability and affordability of energy for farmers and ranchers and encourages the growth of renewable energy production; 2) Working for greater investment in rural and agricultural infrastructure, including broadband Internet access, rural roads and bridges, inland waterway locks and dams, sea ports and agricultural research; and 3) To continue working to eliminate the estate tax and monitor implementation of the 2017 tax reform law.

 

When you are involved in agriculture, you understand that many times you have to do many different things at the same time. But I’m not sure that back last January, we knew that Farm Bureau members would be working at full speed on all of the issues at the same time. In fact, I can’t recall a time when your Farm Bureau has been fully engaged on every single priority issue at the same time at his level of intensity.

 

Issue Update

*The U.S. House and the U.S. Senate have both been working diligently on passing a farm bill before it expires in September.

*Disagreements over immigration reform derailed the U.S. House farm bill floor action which helped us engage in reform to agricultural labor programs. So, while Farm Bureau continues to work on our agriculture labor priority, we continue to advocate to complete the farm bill on time.

*At the same time Farm Bureau is very active in protecting and expanding market opportunities through trade agreements.

*Farm Bureau is also working on repealing and replacing the Waters of the U. S. regulation and Working for solutions regarding Hours of Service (HOS) challenges for our members.

*Farm Bureau is actively engaged in delisting the gray wolf from the Endangered Species Act, and working closely with the administration to protect the Renewable Fuel Standard.

 

In Closing

Farm Bureau continues to be a leader on many policy issues at the local, state and federal levels, all at the same time. This could not be possible without your Farm Bureau dues and your engagement in Farm Bureau activities. Thank you for being a Farm Bureau member, invite a neighbor or friend to join while you are telling them about all our priority issues we are simultaneously working on.
