There’s 7 systems, 8-10 parts per system (57 total I think?), and a few parts have 2 or 3 severity levels.

I think chits or cards can work (with enough work...), BUT it doesn’t remove the need for a reference sheet because all the information on that card or chit will be used up giving you the system, rarity, party, severity.

There’s no way to remove the reference. If you draw some cards/chits and end up with a selection, you still will have to go look up what it is and what the effect is (which, yeah, I bet I could get down to one sheet).

So the question is, since you’re going to a reference anyway, is it just easier to have the player roll on a couple charts instead of cards/chits? If something is GAINED by doing the cards/chits, then it’s worth doing.

If it’s really not that different (chit, chit, chit instead of roll, roll, roll) then it’s a hell of a lot easier to design the chart than it is the deck/bag.

And I'll readily acknowledge that I might be 3 steps behind in the thought process here, but I'm having fun thinking about it anyway. :D

Forgive me again if this is in the rules doc already, but I'll ask anyway:

1. How many systems are there?
2. How many parts per system?
3. How many levels of damage severity?

Is that all the variables? Unless I'm way out of bounds, I'm thinking that if you have 4 systems for example, then the shape on the chit could represent that. Square, circle, Triangle, Star? Or you could come up with some silhouette that resembles something in the system so you could remember it easily. Drops for fuel, a cog for engine, etc.

Then colors could represent the damage severity, which should be simple enough. Letters could represent the specific parts. If you're only having to reference one chart (the letters) per hit, that's not bad. I'd think you could get that all on one sheet, right?

Then letters could also correlate to events at certain parts of the mission.

Chit draw is easier than cards, but cards have more information. I'd limit the reshuffling for sure.

But are either of those easier than just rolling on charts? Charts are easier to design, so if they're also going to be easier to play, then why not.

I'd play either, but it sounds like chit draw would make it easier on the player rather than having to reshuffle each time (assuming you want to avoid card counting on the part of the player).

So I've doing more work on this. Here's a question for you all, who are a good representation of my target audience:

If I used cards or chits, I couldn't list the part that got hit on them. There's too many. I could list a few different attributes of the hit to help narrow it down, and even the "die roll" if I used cards. But you'd still have to go the book (player aid) to get the actual part and damage effect.

For example.

Flip a card to get the system that was hit. Then flip a second to get the rarity of the event. Then flip a card to get your roll.

So you'd end up with, say, "Engine, A, 14". Then the player aid lists the numbers and you scan down until you get your result, then read across to see what got hit and what the effects is.

Would you play that or not?

Chits are maybe doable, too, I'll have to think of some solutions, but cards are definitely doable if I can get the numbers to work.

If that would be too annoying, then the only other way to do this is to put it on a chart. It'd probably be the same type of thing, you'd just roll. Roll for system, roll for rarity, roll for part.

Which would personally prefer?

Toronto Design Offsite Festival (TO DO) brings people together to celebrate contemporary design across the city January 18-27, 2019. Join the Festival to become a part of an exciting network of creative people, exhibitions, events, and a captive audience of designers and design-lovers. Last year we had 100+ events and exhibitions across the city, 140K+ visitors, 95+ million press impressions, and 500+ million total brand impressions. From design talks to experimental installations to prototypes to opening parties and curated exhibitions, the Festival featured the work of over 800 artists and designers.

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.

Work/Life

Work/Life is an annual exhibition organized by the Toronto Design Offsite Festival in partnership with Umbra. A dozen new prototypes by Canadian designers are shown each year at the Umbra Store during the Festival. 

Work/Life invites Canadian designers to design a product for innovative houseware and workware that consider opportunities for multiple functions, storage, space efficiency, personalization, dual utility, entertaining, and other hybrid and micro-living concerns.

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.

          The Making of a Programming Language: Slate [Part 1]      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I made a new programming language! (((Note: right now it can only add number literals to each other and export constants, but it runs!!))

[Part 1] Introduction

Slate!

In the recent time, I've been working on making a brand new programming language and it's called Slate! This is going to be a series, more or less start to "finish" as I document my progress making the compiler, standard library, and maybe even some programs in Slate.

Slate is the (first?) programming language that compiles directly from source code to WebAssembly. Yes, that's why I've been asking about WASM for so long :). The syntax is largely inspired by JavaScript ES2015+ with other influences from Java, Kotlin, and more.

So what can it do right now? A new language? Why? How is it different? Can I use it?

Right now this is about all it does.

/**
 * https://github.com/nektro/slate/blob/master/tests/02.grammar/01.operators/001.slate
 */
//
export const expected = 80;
//
export function main(): i32 {
    return 48 + 32;
}

What do?

You can export integer constant literals and export a function that adds integer literals together. That's about it. But slate.js can fully parse this and export a WASM Module that does the same, albeit very literal for now.

Why make?

I really love JavaScript. This love stems from a broader love of the Web as a platform as a whole and JS is all we get. Until now! WebAssembly is the answer to the old question "is the Web getting any other languages other than JavaScript?". With WASM gains access ALL THE LANGUAGES[1]. So in part of a love for JS, part for a desire to make my own language because, and to try to implement features I've never seen before, I set out to make a language specifically for the Web through WASM.

[1]: provided aforementioned language has the proper toolchain

And through this series I'm going to document more or less the entire journey.

How different?

Slate is strongly typed. So that's one thing that's different. But I also want to add things like operator overloading, object extensions(Like adding onto <Object>.prototype but in a statically typed lang), and more.

Can I use it?

Technically yes! If you'd like to compile the program above and run it in your very own WebAssembly-supporting browser then you can do the following:

import * as slate from "https://rawgit.com/nektro/slate/master/src/slate.js"

const slate_program = `
/**
 *
 */
//
export const expected = 80;
//
export function main(): i32 {
    return 48 + 32;
}
`;

Promise.resolve(slate_program)
.then(x => slate.parse(x))
.then(x => x.instance)
.then(x => x.exports)
.then(x => {
    // `x` == { expected: 80, main: func() { [native code] } }
});

How did you do it?

Like any other language, there are a number of steps that are similar between making a compiler and all of them take place in Slate as well.

  • Lexical Analysis
  • Parser
  • Semantic Analyzer
  • Code Generation
  • Linker

1. Lexical Analysis

This step was made easy because the majority of code used for this part was already written when I made an HTML preprocessor and added to my basalt javascript library. The code for Slate's lexer can be found here.

Our lexer will take the text of our program and do some really handy things for us. It has to remove the comments, as well as convert the code into a list of tokens with data that we can then later pass onto the parser.

So with the lexer set up properly, basalt will turn our test program into something like the code below.

[
    Key("export"),
    Key("const"),
    Id("expected"),
    Symbol(=),
    Int(80),
    Symbol(;),
    Key("export"),
    Key("function"),
    Id("main"),
    Symbol("("),
    Symbol(")"),
    Symbol(":"),
    Id("i32"),
    Symbol("{"),
    Key("return"),
    Int(48),
    Symbol("+"),
    Int(32),
    Symbol(";"),
    Symbol("}")
]

2. Parser

This part of the process was also very involved when I made my HTML preprocessor so parsing is also a module in basalt. Basalt helps us build a parser but we still have to add all the magic. Slate's parser is here. Those familiar with the computer science here, we are attempting to create a formal language by means of a pseudo-context-free grammar. ANTLR is another big project in this space of creating a lexer/parser in a format much more similar to Backus–Naur form.

Simply put, we have to come up with a series of patters that can take our token list from before and compress it down into a single express that we can then analyze later to create our program.

After that process, our test program looks more like this:

Note: I'm skipping the code demo part because the output from the parser is very verbose and the next step we're going to condense it down a bit to show the same information but in a lot more useful format

3. Semantic Analyzer

This part is done in Slate by the "converter" which takes the very verbose output from the parser, verifies it, and generates the AST. The source for the Slate converter can be found here.

So now what does our program look like?

File(
    Export(
        Const(
            "expected"
            80
        )
    )
    Export(
        Function(
            "main"
            Parameters(
            )
            "i32"
            Block(
                Return(
                    Add(
                        48
                        32
                    )
                )
            )
        )
    )
)

4. Code Generation

Whew! Almost there! At this point we have a nice AST but now need to compile to WebAssembly so that it's able to run by WebAssembly.instantiateStreaming(), etc. Since I wanted to make this a little easier on myself, I decided to have my compiler generate WASM in the text format as opposed to the binary format and then to use wabt to convert the text to binary WASM. Trust me, I love WebAssembly and what it stands for, but even trying to figure out the text format has been difficult. There is very little docs on the formats currently and most of what I've going off is the WASM platform spec tests and output from various WASM playgrounds.

The code for generating WAST from our AST is actually attached to the objects sent out of the converter, so that code is here. After generation of said WAST we shoudld get the following:

(module
    (memory $0 1)
    (global i32 (i32.const 80) )
    (export "expected" (global 0) )
    (func (export "main") (result i32)
        (i32.add (i32.const 48) (i32.const 32) )
    )
)

Hooray! 🙌

5. Linker

For now we're actually done. Imports are not currently implemented and there is no standard library yet, so this phase will have to come later.

Thanks for reading! If you liked this, let me know what you'd like to see in the future of Slate and stay tuned for more!

Coming up in future installments:

  • Design ideas and long term goals
  • More operators
  • Type inference to add support for floating point numbers and objects
  • Variables
  • if, while, for, etc
  • Strings

          Corona Labs releases a new public build      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Corona Labs is pleased to announce the availability of our latest public release of Corona: 2018.3326. This build contains significant bug fixes and new features that we hope you will appreciate. Google Play One of the biggest changes in this public build is addressing changes required by Google. Since the last public build, Google has changed their Vitals detection methods and have gotten considerably more aggressive with their detection. To support these changes, we’ve updated all of our support plugins for Android to bring them up to modern standards. We have also increased our Android API level to 27 (Android 8.1) in preparation for Google’s August, 2018 requirement to have API level 26 support. Google is also pushing new app signing procedures. As such, Corona can now employ the modern encryption methods used by the latest Java keytool built keystores as well as older keystores. HTML5 You will notice that a majority of the updates in this build are involving HTML5. That’s right – HTML5 builds are now in Open Beta! HTML5 is becoming a considerably more stable product. We now include the base code needed to build Facebook Instant Games as well as support for the VK social media site’s version as well. HTML5 builds are already having an impact on other platforms. Developers have prototyped HTML5 versions of game ideas and pitched them to publishers to build mobile versions of the games. Being able to quickly give someone a look into your prototype is a great way to market your content. GDPR The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation went into effect on May 25, 2018. This public release of Corona does not collect data considered personal in nature. Also, Corona Labs doesn’t collect any personal data in Corona-managed advertising plugins. The third-party SDKs used in the plugins have their own GDPR requirements.. Apple On the Apple side, we have updated to support iOS 11.4 and Xcode 9.4 and implemented additional features to support iOS 11 edge gestures that impact the iPhone X. One breaking change that comes with iOS 11 is that getting the default language of the device is now dependent on additions to the iOS plist. iOS 11 only returns supported values that your app supports. You must include an entry in your build.settings file to list the supported languages by the app. For example: settings = { iphone = { plist = { CFBundleLocalizations = {"en", "fr", "pt", "zh", "de", "it", "ja", "es", "ru", "uk"}, }, }, } You can look at the sample app: SampleCode/GettingStarted/HelloWorldLocalized for an example of this requirement or see our localization guide. Open-source libraries In addition to these changes, Corona Labs is open-sourcing the following libraries: timer.* easing.* transition.* composer.* You can download the Lua source for these libraries from the Corona Labs GitHub account. In addition, the widget.* library was updated to be in sync with our internal library. Facebook Facebook has recently changed their permission requirements for apps. You now have to submit your app to Facebook for review and get approved to use the user_friends permission. We have removed the default addition of the user_friends permission from the login process. Starting with this release (2018.3326) plugin facebook_v4a only asks for public_profile by default. This may be a breaking change if your app depends on the user_friends permission. If this is a case, add the permission when requesting login, like facebook.login( { 'user_friends' } ). Check it out! You can see a full list of changes in our release notes for 2017.3326.

1/24 Castrol Toyota Tom's Supra GTThis is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

The Japanese GT Car Championships were inaugurated in 1993, and are becoming more popular with motorsports buffs throughout domestic Japan. In addition to the highly modified Japanese cars, the super cars of Europe, like Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche, vie for the title.

During the 1995 season Toyota entered a fleet of their race tuned Supra GT's into this popular event. Packed into the Supra look alike body shell was Toyota's latest racing technology. A 2,140cc, 4-cylinder turbocharged powerplant was taken from Toyota's Eagle Mk.III racing machine, which was active during the '93 IMSA races in the U.S.A. The X-Trac developed sequential 6-speed gearbox efficiently transmitted this engine's awesome power to the rear wheels. Four wheel double wishbone suspension components were taken from another Toyota prototype racer, the TS010. The body shell was extensively modified to obtain even better aerodynamics. Additional air intakes and outlets, oversized fenders and a huge rear spoiler, gave its massive silhouette and even more aggressive appearance.

Four different racing teams used the Supra during the '95 season and among them, Tom's was sponsored by Castrol. Driven by skilled drivers Sekiya and Krumm, the Castrol Tom's Supra pleased the racing fans with its outstanding performance throughout the season.

1/48 Mitsubishi A6M3 Type 32 Zero Fighter KitThis is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

Much has been written over the years about the Japanese Zero Fighter Aircraft series. Much was based upon hearsay and legend and little upon fact itself. Even the Allied Forces and governments refused at first to acknowledge its existence, and when they did get a copy of it, they could hardly believe the performance it produced.

The prototype zero or A6M1 first took place on paper on January 17, 1938, following the Japanese request for a shipboard fighter with a top speed of 27o kph at 12000 ft 7 6-8 hours of cruise economy endurance and 1.5-2 hours at normal combat speeds. Armament was to be two 20mm cannon and two 7.7mm machine guns plus the normal radio equipment and direction finding gear. These specifications wee so far from the existing state of the art that the famous Nakajima Company dropped out of competition, stating that they were impossible to meet. That left Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and their design team headed by Jiro Horikoshi the only company to tackle the problem.

First flight was on 1 April 1939 and combat trials were concluded in July 1940 with 15 pre-production A6M2's sent to two squadrons by the end of the month. These aircraft had folding wing tips to accommodate aircraft carrier elevators, and were the ones first seen by Gen. Chennault in China, and at Pearl Harbor in December 1941. Although the A6M2 met or exceeded original design specifications, modifications were taking place at the Mitsubishi factory to improve roll rate, speed up handling aboard carriers, and utilize the uprated Sakae 21, 1,130 hp engine. The first A6M3 type 32 (code named HAMP) took to the air on 15 July 1941 with production beginning in April 42. A total of 343 aircraft were produced by August 43, when the type 52 A6M5 began production.

The Type 32 Zero had the most radical change in the entire series and was readily recognized by its squared off wing tips. This reduced total span to exactly 11 meters and eliminated the cumbersome folding tips which consumed time during combat to get the aircraft down carrier elevators. The larger Sakae 21 engine gave the type 32 a better rate of climb and the shorter wing span (1 meter shorter) lessened stick forces and increased roll rate. The Hamp was utilized throughout the war, but saw most of its service off of land based installations in the southern island chains of New Guinea and the Phillipines.

1/48 Douglas Skyraider AD-6 (A-1H)This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

During 1943 the U.S. Bureau of Aeronautics considered to combine the tasks of torpedo bomber and dive-bomber into one. Several aircraft manufacturers, such as Douglas and Martin, were requested to develop a large, single-seat attack aircraft. According to the requirement, Douglas Skyraider, was developed by Douglas Aircraft Company, Inc.

The development was started in early July 1944, and all night efforts of engineers made the first prototype's first flight possible already on March 18, 1945. Despite the short period of the development, flight trials proved the airframe's flight characteristics satisfactory and the aircraft was rated very highly. In May 1945 a letter of intent for 598 production was signed. The name "Skyraider" was officially approved for the aircraft in February of the following year, and the distribution to units was started at the end of the same year. The Skyraider was powered by Wright R3350 radial engine yielding 2,800 horse power and equipped with three large dive brakes on the fuselage.

The Skyraider had a number of types, from the AD-1 to AD-7, recording grand total number of production of more than 3,000. Among them, AD-6 was the most produced variant. The AD designation for the Skyraider was changed in 1962, and the AD-6 became the A-1H. Noted for its durability and a large capacity for external stores, the Skyraider was well liked by its pilots and crewmen.

1/48 P-47D Thunderbolt BubbletopThis is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

In May 1941, as the war raged in Europe, a single-engine fighter of more than 4t made its first flight. This fighter was the XP-47B, prototype of the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt of which a total of 15683 units will be built. Thanks to war experience, this aircraft was equipped with a 2000hp radial R-2800 engine, a supercharger and eight 12,7mm machine-guns. The XP-47B was to reach 633km/h and in January 1942, just after the USA went to war, the production of P-47B began. It was followed by the P-47C that incorporated various improvements and, from April 1943, by the P-47D, the most built version. The P-47D was equipped with an R-2800-59 engine, which can develop up to 2300hp with combat emergency water injection system engaged. The ducts that were passing on the sides and below the cockpit to connect the supercharger placed behind the pilot's seat gave to this plane its massive aspect. Many sub-types of the P-47D, designated D-1 to D-40, were produced but the first versions were called "Razorback" because of their sharp edge dorsal fin. The D-25 sub-type, which was introduced around June 1944, was fitted with an electrically actuated bubble canopy in order to improve pilot visibility and increased capacity fuel tanks. This decision resulted in a completely remodeled plane shape. All subsequent sub-types were also fitted with the bubble canopy and became a characteristic feature of late production Thunderbolts. The P-47 "Bubbletop" proved to be an excellent, well-balanced fighter-bomber.

          Volkswagen T-Cross prototype 2018: first drive of crossover supermini      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Volkswagen T-Cross prototype 2019 first drive review hero front Practicality coupled with a funky design and strong engines suggest this compact crossover could challenge at the sharp end of its segment

The market launch of the Volkswagen T-Cross is still almost a year away, but this being Autocar, we’ve already had access to a prototype to deliver you an early impression.

The T-Cross you see here is far from production ready, as is evident from the camouflage that makes it look like it crashed into the Starburst factory. But what lies beneath, according to the car’s engineers, is “95% complete”. So this is a credible early glimpse of what’s to come.

Due on sale in spring 2019 priced from about £17,000, the T-Cross follows the all-new T-Roc to further bolster VW’s SUV line-up, which is set to grow to 12 models by 2020. But as the cheapest of the lot, the T-Cross, a rival to the Hyundai Kona and Nissan Juke, could fast become the volume seller and, given the sky-rocketing demand for SUVs, it’s not particularly mad to suggest it could outsell the Polo one day.

The T-Cross is built on the ubiquitous MQB platform and in this application it’s technically linked to the Polo, so it shares many features with that car, including a very similar footprint that’s only larger thanks to extended overhangs. Although the car pictured here wears camouflage, we’ve seen an undisguised design prototype and it’s clear VW has gone for a similarly youthful look to the one it introduced with the T-Roc, particularly at the rear, where there’s LED lighting and a reflector bar across the middle.

VW’s engineers have packed as much safety and practicality as possible into the T-Cross, so it gets a full suite of driver assist technology, including VW’s latest front assist area monitoring system that can prevent impacts with vehicles ahead or approaching from the side. Plus the T-Cross can devour a class-leading 455 litres of luggage when the 60/40-split rear bench is slid forward by 20mm (a feature that’s unique in the segment) and the two-level boot floor is set to its lowest. It swallows 1281 litres with the rear seats completely down.

This provides the T-Cross with “unrivalled flexibility”, according to VW small cars boss Andreas Krüger, although the prototypes we tried featured a strengthening bar that stretched across the front of the boot floor (just behind the seats), which created an inconvenient raised lip about an inch high. This could be “engineered out” before production starts, we’re told, but it might not be, which would hinder the usability of the boot floor’s space.

Tick a few option boxes and VW will add its slick and functional 8.0in touchscreen infotainment system and the active info display instrument cluster as well, carried directly over from the Polo. There are also vibrant trim finishes available with an optional 3D print design on the dashboard to spruce things up.

We spent most of our time in a car equipped with a 1.0 TSI triple producing up to 113bhp. It is predicted to be the top-seller and comes with a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox (we tried the latter). But the range will start with a 94bhp version of the triple mated exclusively to a five-speed ’box. A 1.5 TSI four-pot with 148bhp is due as the quickest option. There’ll be just one diesel, a 1.6 TDI with 94bhp and 184lb ft.

On the road, the T-Cross, which is available in front-wheel drive only, feels only marginally larger than a Polo so remains easy to thread along the narrow sections of Bavarian country lane on our test route. The 1.0 TSI, familiar from the Polo and Golf, remains impressive in this application, offering strong lowdown torque with a pleasing three-cylinder rumble. It feels eager and free revving in the T-Cross, even if not particularly potent, and the DSG dual-clutch gearbox is quick to shift. We noted a slight hesitation to kick down under heavy throttle loads on a few occasions, but VW's engineers say there is still some calibration work to do.

The diesel is expected to remain a low-volume option because oilburners are not in particularly heavy demand at this end of the market. But the 1.6-litre unit feels effortless in the T-Cross, with its healthy peak torque seemingly available from under 2000rpm. (Specifications aren’t confirmed yet.) It allows the seven-speed auto to hang onto higher gears for longer to make the whole driving experience feel more effortless.

Interestingly, our diesel test car rode slightly better than the petrol one – both were on 17in wheels, although 16s and 18s will also be offered – soaking up ridges and cracks without the thuds and vibrations we’d felt in the 1.0-litre car. This could be linked to the slightly firmer front springs used in the heavier diesel doing a better job of keeping the body composed, but we suspect it’s evidence of an undecided final set-up and variations between these very well-used development cars.

Let’s make no mistake, here. It’s difficult to come to conclusions about a production car so far from it being signed off, so we won’t. But it’s clear the T-Cross has a lot going for it, particularly in terms of practicality.

If VW’s engineers can iron out the remaining creases and be confident enough to give the brand’s most compact SUV the interior it deserves, you’d be hard pressed to doubt the glint of confidence in their eyes.

Honestly, I’ve yet to think of a way to do this.

Let’s say you pull a chit. It has a letter on it. That’s the system that got it. It’s easy enough balance those.

Then you pull another. That’s the rarity. By making rarity one of the factors I can smooth out the probabilities.

Then the third pull gives you a number. Those three pieces give you the part that got hit, which you go look up.

Problem is, to do it from one bag like that means that the reference will have to pull some of the weight of balancing.

For example, say it’s “Engine,” “A,” “12.” That’s your pull.

The chart would have to say something like Engine, A, 9-15 = radiator. It couldn’t just always be one to one, it’d have to be ranges.

Becuase the letter and number distribution is in the bag, and it’s the same for every system. It’ll change a bit as you pull a token out, but ignoring that for now, the distribution of rarities and numbers wouldn’t change.

So you couldn’t say Engine, A, 12 is the radiator. You could, and you could balance the letter/number distribution for that. But then A, 12 is ALWAYS that same probability. And no other part is exactly the same probability. Sure some might be close and I can fudge, but entire systems will not have lists of parts that all fit the same probability profile from every attack vector.

So then what you end up doing is not really designing the bag to fit the chart. Instead you’re designing the bag to just be a really complex die roll that gives you lots of options. Then you design the reference to translate between the two. This feels less elegant. Not sure how else to do it.

Yeah, if I can get all the items on one or two pages I think you could resolve that pretty quick. And drawing chits/cards is faster than rolling a die usually. I’ll see if I can come up with something!

I can't help but think of Last Frontier in which the chit pull IS the source of tension. There's additional charts in that, too, but the chit gives the initial "oh ****" feeling. I think pulling a chit to see which part is damaged might give a little more weight to the proceedings, but it would have to be worth the additional work for you. 7 chits isn't enough for a chit bag I wouldn't think so maybe you mix in "misses" with the systems? Once you see which system is hit you could chart it from there.


Yeah, for sure. It would definitely have misses, superficial hits, critical hits, and probably events in there, too. Especially with multiple draws, pulling chits from a bag where you know there’s good and bad stuff in it is a huge source of tension. And I can really have fun with it, adding narrative chits, or story-based chits, or delayed stuff (didn’t fully repair the truck? Add this chit to the bag that means something breaks when you draw it.

But it’ll have to end with a reference to a chart. The best I can do is have it count as basically a few die rolls, but in the end you’ll still be given a letter/number combination and have to reference it.
          Ember.js, TypeScript, and Class Properties      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A few months ago, I wrote a mostly-complete series describing the state of using TypeScript with Ember in 2018. I got one very important thing wrong in that series, and I’m back with the correction!1

In that series, I showed an example of a component definition; it looked like this:

import Component from '@ember/component';
import { computed, get } from '@ember/object';
import Computed from '@ember/object/computed';
import { inject as service } from '@ember/service';
import { assert } from '@ember/debug';
import { isNone } from '@ember/utils';

import Session from 'my-app/services/session';
import Person from 'my-app/models/person';

export default class AnExample extends Component {
  // -- Component arguments -- //
  model: Person;      // required
  modifier?: string;  // optional, thus the `?`

  // -- Injections -- //
  session: Computed<Session> = service();

  // -- Class properties -- //
  aString = 'this is fine';
  aCollection: string[] = [];

  // -- Computed properties -- //
  // TS correctly infers computed property types when the callback has a
  // return type annotation.
  fromModel = computed(
    'model.firstName',
    function(this: AnExample): string {
      return `My name is ${get(this.model, 'firstName')};`;
    }
  );

  aComputed = computed('aString', function(this: AnExample): number {
    return this.lookAString.length;
  });

  isLoggedIn = bool('session.user');
  savedUser: Computed<Person> = alias('session.user');

  actions = {
    addToCollection(this: AnExample, value: string) {
      const current = this.get('aCollection');
      this.set('aCollection', current.concat(value));
    }
  };

  constructor() {
    super();
    assert('`model` is required', !isNone(this.model));

    this.includeAhoy();
  }

  includeAhoy(this: AnExample) {
    if (!this.get('aCollection').includes('ahoy')) {
      this.set('aCollection', current.concat('ahoy'));
    }
  }
}

The problem here is all the computed property assignments and the actions hash assignments. The fact that this sample code ever worked at all was… an accident. It wasn’t supposed to work. I noted at the time that this way of doing things had a performance tradeoff because computed properties ended up installed on every instance rather than on the prototype… and as it turns out, that was never intended to work. Only the prototype installation was supposed to work. And as it turns out, the ES5 getters implementation of computed properties which landed in Ember 3.1 broke every computed property set up this way.

So if you can’t use class properties for this… how do you do it? There are two ways: the .extend() hack I mentioned previously, and decorators. (The Ember Decorators docs include a discussion of this topic as well—see their discussion of class fields.)

Note that throughout I’m assuming Ember 3.1+ and therefore ES5 getter syntax (this.property instead of this.get('property')).

.extend()

The first workaround uses .extend() in conjunction with a class definition. I originally wrote about this approach:

If you need the absolute best performance, you can continue to install them on the prototype by doing this instead…

As it turns out, it’s more like “If you want your app to work at all…”

Here’s how that would look with our full example from above. Note that there are three things which must go in the .extend() block with this approach: injections, computed properties, and the actions hash.

import Component from '@ember/component';
import { computed, get } from '@ember/object';
import { inject as service } from '@ember/service';
import { assert } from '@ember/debug';
import { isNone } from '@ember/utils';

import Person from 'my-app/models/person';

export default class AnExample extends Component.extend({
  // -- Injections -- //
  session: service('session'),

    // -- Computed properties -- //
  // TS correctly infers computed property types when the callback has a
  // return type annotation.
  fromModel: computed(
    'model.firstName',
    function(this: AnExample): string {
      return `My name is ${this.model.firstName};`;
    }
  ),

  aComputed: computed('aString', function(this: AnExample): number {
    return this.lookAString.length;
  }),

  isLoggedIn: bool('session.user'),
  savedUser: alias('session.user') as Person,

  actions: {
    addToCollection(this: AnExample, value: string) {
      this.set('aCollection', this.aCollection.concat(value));
    }
  },
}) {
  // -- Component arguments -- //
  model!: Person;     // required
  modifier?: string;  // optional, thus the `?`

  // -- Class properties -- //
  aString = 'this is fine';
  aCollection: string[] = [];

  constructor() {
    super();
    assert('`model` is required', !isNone(this.model));

    this.includeAhoy();
  }

  includeAhoy(this: AnExample) {
    if (!this.aCollection.includes('ahoy')) {
      this.set('aCollection', this.aCollection.concat('ahoy'));
    }
  }
}

There are three main things to note here.

First, check out the session('service') injection. We need the name of the service being injected for TypeScript to be able to resolve the type correctly (which it does by using “type registries,” as discussed briefly in this footnote in my series earlier this year). The alternative is writing session: service() as Session—a type cast—which is fine but isn’t particularly idiomatic TypeScript.

Second, notice that we do have to use a type cast, as Person, for the savedUser definition. While many computed property macros and the computed helper itself can properly infer the type of the resulting computed property, macros which accept nested keys do not and cannot. Thus, bool can resolve its type to a boolean, but readOnly or alias have to resolve their type as any. The value passed to them could be a strangely shaped string key on the local object (['like.a.path']: true) or an actual path through multiple objects. (This is the same limitation that means we cannot do nested get lookups.)

Third, as I noted even when we were doing this the wrong way, with class field assignment, we need to explicitly specify the type of this for callback passed in to define the computed properties. In the context of a .extend() invocation, though, this sometimes falls down. You’ll see an error like this:

‘AnExample’ is referenced directly or indirectly in its own base expression.

This doesn’t happen for all computed properties, but it happens often enough to be very annoying—and it always happens with Ember Concurrency tasks. (More on this below.) This problem was actually the original motivation for my experimentation with assigning computed properties to class fields.

This set of problems with defining computed properties and injections in an .extend() invocation is a major motivator for my team in eagerly adopting decorators.

Decorators

The cleaner, but currently still experimental, way to do this is to use Ember Decorators.2 To use these, you should run ember install ember-decorators and then set the experimentalDecorators compiler option to true in your tsconfig.json.

Once you’ve installed the decorators package, you can update your component. In general, the imports match exactly to the Ember module imports, just with @ember-decorators as the top-level package rather than @ember. Here’s how our component looks using decorators:

import Component from '@ember/component';
import { assert } from '@ember/debug';
import { isNone } from '@ember/utils';

import { action, computed } from '@ember-decorators/object';
import { alias, bool } from '@ember-decorators/object/computed';
import { service } from '@ember-decorators/service';

import Session from 'my-app/services/session';
import Person from 'my-app/models/person';

export default class AnExample extends Component {
  // -- Component arguments -- //
  model!: Person;     // required
  modifier?: string;  // optional, thus the `?`

  // -- Injections -- //
  @service session: Session;

  // -- Class properties -- //
  aString = 'this is fine';
  aCollection: string[] = [];

  // -- Computed properties -- //
  // TS correctly infers computed property types when the callback has a
  // return type annotation.
  @computed('model.firstName')
  get fromModel(): string {
    return `My name is ${this.model.firstName}`;
  }

  @computed('aString')
  get aComputed(): number {
    return this.aString.length;
  }

  @bool('session.user') isLoggedIn: boolean;
  @alias('session.user') savedUser: Person;

  @action
  addToCollection(this: AnExample, value: string) {
    this.set('aCollection', this.aCollection.concat(value));
  }

  constructor() {
    super();
    assert('`model` is required', !isNone(this.model));

    this.includeAhoy();
  }

  includeAhoy(this: AnExample) {
    if (!this.aCollection.includes('ahoy')) {
      this.set('aCollection', this.aCollection.concat('ahoy'));
    }
  }
}

First, notice that using decorators switches us to using actual ES5 getters. This is exactly the same thing that RFC #0281 specified, and which was implemented for Ember’s traditional computed property and injection functions in Ember 3.1 to unlock . What’s extra nice, though, is that decorators are backwards compatible all the way to Ember 1.11. (You won’t get the ES5 getters on versions prior to to Ember 3.1—there the decorators just install things on the prototype—but you will at least get the correct behavior.)

Second, note that we don’t get type inference for the computed property macros like @bool here. That’s because decorators are not currently allowed to modify the type of the thing they’re decorating from TypeScript’s perspective. Now, decorators can—and do!—modify the type of the thing they decorate at runtime; it’s just that TS doesn’t yet capture that. This means that all decorated fields will still require type annotations, not just a subset as in the .extend() world. It’s annoying—especially in the case of things like @bool, where it really seems like we ought to be able to just tell TypeScript that this means the thing is a boolean rather than writing @bool('dependentKey') someProp: boolean.

This leads us to our final point to notice: we also need the type annotations for service (or controller) injections—but we do not need the string keys for them service injections.3 The net of this is that the injections themselves roughly equally ergonomic.4

// the old way
session: service('session'),
// the new way
@service session: Session;

Ember Concurrency

One other thing I need to draw your attention to here: I and a few others have taken a stab at writing type definitions for Ember Concurrency. Unfortunately, typings that type-check run smack dab into the fact that as of 3.1 that style doesn’t work; and typings that work cannot be type-checked at present. You can’t even use decorators to push your way to a solution. Nor is there a lot of hope on the horizon for this reality to change.

You can see some of the discussion as to why starting here in one pull request for them; it all gets back to the limitation I mentioned above: TypeScript doesn’t let you change the types of things with decorators. Unfortunately, there’s no reason to believe that will change anytime soon. This is a fundamental conflict between the Ember Object model and modern JavaScript—and specifically TypeScript’s understanding of it.

I am still mulling over solutions to that problem (as are others), and we’ll be continuing to work on this idea in #-topic-typescript in the Ember Community Slack (and publicizing any good ideas we come up with there in a searchable location, of course). For today, the best thing you can do is explicitly set the this type to any for the task property generator function callback, and use type casts internally if you look up services or other properties from the containing object.

Summary: mea culpa

Sorry again to everyone I misled along the way with my earlier, very wrong advice! Hopefully this helps clear up the state of things and will help you keep from falling into this tar pit going forward!


  1. I don’t feel too bad about having gotten in wrong: no one who read the posts noticed the problem at the time, and it was subtle and easy to miss… because, at the time, everything actually worked.

  2. It’s experimental because decorators are still only at Stage 2 in the TC39 process. They may advance at this month’s meeting.

  3. If you’re using a non-default name, like specialSession, for the name of the property, the usual rules apply for injections. In that case, you’d write the injection like this:

    import Component from '@ember/component';
    import { service } from '@ember-decorators/service';
    import Session from 'my-app/services/session';
    
    export default class AnExample extends Component {
      @service('session') specialSession: Session;
    }
  4. Files do get an extra import in the decorator version… but as it happens, I’m more than okay with that; I’d actually prefer explicit imports of dependencies personally.

          ARF-Predictor: Effective Prediction of Aging-Related Failure Using Entropy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Even well-designed software systems suffer from chronic performance degradation, also known as “software aging”, due to internal (e.g., software bugs) or external (e.g., resource exhaustion) impairments. These chronic problems often fly under the radar of software monitoring systems before causing severe impacts (e.g., system failures). Therefore, it is a challenging issue how to timely predict the occurrence of failures caused by these problems. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of prior approaches are far from satisfactory due to the insufficiency of aging indicators adopted by them. To accurately predict failures caused by software aging which are named as Aging-Related Failure (ARFs), this paper presents a novel entropy-based aging indicator, namely Multidimensional Multi-scale Entropy (MMSE) which leverages the complexity embedded in runtime performance metrics to indicate software aging. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time to leverage entropy to predict ARFs. Based upon MMSE, we implement three failure prediction approaches encapsulated in a proof-of-concept prototype named ARF-Predictor. The experimental evaluations in a Video on Demand (VoD) system, and in a real-world production system, AntVision, show that ARF-Predictor can predict ARFs with a very high accuracy and a low Ahead-Time-To-Failure ( $ATTF$ ). Compared to previous approaches, ARF-Predictor improves the prediction accuracy by about 5 times and reduces $ATTF$ even by 3 orders of magnitude. In addition, ARF-Predictor is light-weight enough to satisfy the real-time requirement.

The Land-Wasser-Schlepper was conceived by Germany as a tracked amphibious tractor in 1936. A small number of this unarmored boat-like vehicle was built and they served on the Eastern Front. However, perhaps even less well known is the vehicle designed as its successor - the Panzerfahre (also referred to as the "PzF"). The main difference with this vehicle was that it was armored, plus it was conveniently based on the chassis of a Panzer IV tank. Development of the Panzerfahre began in early 1941, and by mid-1942 two prototypes had been delivered by Magirus. The fully tracked vehicle was lightly armored and it had a boat-like bow and a propeller at the stern. Its main function was to act as a vehicle for combat supply on land and in water. It could tow an amphibious trailer, or alternatively it could work in tandem with another Panzerfahre as a floating platform or ferry capable of carrying a 24-ton load.

Dragon's exciting new 1/35 kit depicts the very first prototype of the Panzerfahre. The kit makes full use of the excellent and established set of parts from Dragon's previous Panzer IV tank models - for example, the wheels, suspension and tracks. Meanwhile, all other parts are brand new in line with the unique nature of this vehicle. Detail such as rivets on the hull is beautifully and delicately rendered, while widespread use is made of slide molds. Modelers will find this kit assembles easily, and that the finished item is a stunning vehicle that stands out in any model collection. For something unique, for something equally at home or in the water, the all-new Panzerfahre from Dragon is an irresistible item!

          ARMOR: A Recompilation and Instrumentation-Free Monitoring Architecture for Detecting Memory Exploits      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Software written in programming languages that permit manual memory management, such as C and C++, are often littered with exploitable memory errors. These memory bugs enable attackers to leak sensitive information, hijack program control flow, or otherwise compromise the system and are a critical concern for computer security. Many runtime monitoring and protection approaches have been proposed to detect memory errors in C and C++ applications, however, they require source code recompilation or binary instrumentation, creating compatibility challenges for applications using proprietary or closed source code, libraries, or plug-ins. This paper introduces a new approach for detecting heap memory errors that does not require applications to be recompiled or instrumented. We show how to leverage the calling convention of a processor to track all dynamic memory allocations made by an application during runtime. We also present a transparent tracking and caching architecture to efficiently verify program heap memory accesses. Performance simulations of our architecture using SPEC benchmarks and real-world application workloads show our architecture achieves hit rates over 95 percent for a 256-entry cache, resulting in only 2.9 percent runtime overhead. Security analysis using a software prototype shows our architecture detects 98 percent of heap memory errors from selected test cases in the Juliet Test Suite and real-world exploits.

a) L’ULTIMA ROMA IMPERIALE

Da “Storia d’Italia, Vol. 4, pagg. 143 e segg., Montanelli e Gervaso, RCS 1994, Milano”, citiamo:

Non risulta che i Romani, o per meglio dire gli abitanti di Roma, si rendessero esatto conto di cio’ che significava la decisione di Odoacre di spedire a Costantinopoli le insegne imperiali e di abolire la carica di Augusto. Il Senato, che pro-forma si riuniva per avallare le decisioni del tirannello di turno, lo considero’ un fatto di ordinaria amministrazione, anzi lo saluto’ come una provvida riunificazione dell’Impero dopo la divisione fattane da Costantino. Che tutto l’Occidente se ne fosse separato; che Roma, una volta caput mundi, non lo fosse piu’ neanche dell’Italia, la quale ormai gravitava piu’ su Milano e Ravenna; che la Penisola non fosse piu’ che la remota propaggine di un Impero che si proclamava ancora Romano, ma che in realta’ era soltanto grecorientale, parvero loro tutte cose di scarso rilievo e di secondaria importanza.

Questa indifferenza e’ significativa. Non che, intendiamoci, all’atto pratico il Senato avesse la possibilita’ e i mezzi di opporsi. Se avesse osato, per dirla con Mussolini, i Lanzichenecchi di Odoacre avrebbero fatto di quell’aula sorda e grigia un loro bivacco. Ma almeno un addio alle aquile ed ai fasci littori, cioe’ a ottocento anni di Storia e di Gloria, avrebbe potuto risuonarvi. Invece, niente. Fra gli epigoni di quella che era stata la piu’ rigogliosa aristocrazia del mondo, non se ne trovo’ uno disposto a pronunciare un epitaffio.

L’ultimo Senatore degno di questo nome era stato Simmaco, alle cui “Lettere” dobbiamo il piu’ gradevole ritratto dell’agonizzante Roma imperiale. Veniva da una grande famiglia di Consoli e Prefetti, che avevano servito con la medesima accortezza gli interessi dello Stato e quelli propri, come dimostrava l’immenso patrimonio che avevano accumulato. Fra l’altro essi avevano disseminato, dal Lago di Garda alla Baia di Napoli, una catena di sontuose ville, in modo da poter scorrazzare la Penisola senza lo scomodo di uscire di casa.

Simmaco era l’ultimo rappresentante della cultura pagana, sebbene di fatto di religione si proclamasse agnostico. “Che importanza ha” disse all’imperatore Valentiniano “quale strada si sceglie per giungere al Vero? Quel che conta sapere e’ che non si arrivera’ mai a scoprirlo”. Gran signore ed intimo amico di Vezio Pretestato, capo della minoranza pagana in Senato, egli fu designato a patrocinarla nella sua ultima battaglia contro il Cristianesimo. L’imperatore Graziano, completamente dominato da Ambrogio, sulla fine del quarto secolo ordino’ la chiusura e la confisca di tutti i templi dedicati agli dei e la rimozione dal Senato della statua della Vittoria che Augusto vi aveva installato. Simmaco si oppose con un discorso degno del miglior Cicerone, e fu bandito da Graziano. Morto costui e succedutogli Valentiniano II, Simmaco riprese la sua battaglia oratoria e l’avrebbe vinta sull’animo del nuovo giovane imperatore, se Ambrogio non fosse intervenuto con la sua foga abituale. Il Vescovo di Milano trionfo’ perche’ aveva dalla sua la fede. Simmaco non aveva che la ragione. Le sue “lettere” sono una limpida, ma parziale descrizione della Roma dei suoi tempi, dal punto di vista dei ricchi privilegiati, che ancora vi mantenevano posizioni di rielievo, sia pure soltanto decorative.

Quella che non lo e’ piu’ sul piano politico, e’ ancora pero’ la capitale intellettuale dell’Occidente, dove chiunque voglia parlare al mondo civile e’ costretto a venire ad imparare la lingua e i costumi e per trovare gli strumenti di diffusione. Nei palazzi si sono accumulati libri ed oggetti d’arte. Vi sono tappeti che costano fino a duecento milioni di lire. Battaglioni di cuochi preparano pranzi sontuosi. E dalle conversazioni e’ bandita ogni parola che non sia del piu’ classico latino. Questa societa’ non e’ chiusa. Accoglie tutti coloro, indigeni o forestieri, che in qualche modo fanno spicco, ma gli impone la sua etichetta. Le ambizioni sono piu’ intellettuali che politiche. Tuttavia la dedizione al bene pubblico e’ ancora grande. Questa classe dirigente, lungi dal trarre profitto dalle sue cariche amministrative e diplomatiche (di quelle militari ha perso persino il ricordo) se le mantiene finanziando di tasca propria circhi e teatri.

E’ un ceto signorile di altissima civilta’ che non ruba piu’ perche’ i suoi avi hanno gia’ rubato abbastanza, e alla cui porta tutti i forestieri, barbari o meno, fanno ressa per essere accolti.


C’e’ senza dubbio del vero in questo attraente ritratto, ma visto da una parte sola. L’altra ce la fornisce un cristiano, anzi un prete di Marsiglia, Salviano, nel suo libro “Il governo di Dio”, di cui Agostino ebbe probabilmente conoscenza.


Salviano non vede che oppressione, corruzione e immoralita’, a differ

enza di quanto avviene nelle societa’ barbariche, rozze ma certamente dallo spirito di sacrificio, di un sentimento di solidarieta’ e di fratellanza e dalla legge dell’onore. “Roma muore e ride” dice questo puritano che non l’ama e che forse ha letto un po’ troppo di Tacito. Ma anche nella sua descrizione del vero c’e’.

La citta’ aveva in quel momento meno di duecentomila abitanti, fra i quali i Romani di razza dovevano contarsi, al massimo, a centinaia. Dai tempi di Cesare essa era una metropoli in prevalenza orientale, che si era abituata a vivere parassitariamente alle spalle delle province romanizzate. A parte una cartiera e una fabbrica di coloranti, le sue uniche industrie erano la politica ed il saccheggio. Quest’ultimo aveva riempito il suo tesoro pubblico e quelli privati come nel secolo decimonono il saccheggio coloniale avrebbe fruttato la ricchezza dell’Inghilterra. Ma esso era finito da un pezzo, ormai: da quando Costantinopoli bloccava I mercati orientali e le invasioni barbariche avevano paralizzato quelle occidentali. Da allora sempre piu’ Roma ma aveva dovuto contare solo sulla Penisola. Ma neanche qui le cose andavano bene. La popolazione complessiva non superava i cinque milioni. Ma ai guai della decadenza demografica dovevano aggiungersi quelli del declino della classe media. Dai Gracchi in poi Roma aveva sempre lottato per ricostruire o puntellare quella societa’ contadina di coltivatori diretti che davano i mgliori soldati all’esercito e i migliori funzionari all’amministrazione. Ma il sistema fiscale del basso Impero l’aveva definitivamente rovinata. La Tributaria era talmente corrotta e prevaricatrice che, stando a Salviano, per la prima volta nel terzo secolo si videro cittadini romani fuggire, per salvarsi, oltre la “cortina di ferro” del limes, e rifugiarsi presso i barbari.

L’imperatore Valentiniano I ne fu cosi’ colpito che istitui’ una nuova professione: quella dei “Difensori della Citta” cui erano affidati i reclami contro il fisco. Ma nessun rimedio di legge e’ valido quando il costume si corrompe. I memorialisti del tempo hanno lasciato scritto che coloro che vivevano sulle tasse erano piu’ numerosi di coloro che dovevano pagarle. Ed era la conseguenza di due fenomeni ugualmente deleteri e che si sviluppano sempre di pari passo: da una parte il proliferare della burocrazia, dall’altra l’assottigliamento dei contribuenti. I quali, incapaci di far fronte al fisco, sempre piu’ vendevano il podere o la piccola fattoria al latifondista, facendosene assumere in qualita’ di coloni, cioe’ pressappoco di servi della gleba.

Fu questo il vero inizio del Medioevo almeno dal punto di vista sociale, e comincio’ a verificarsi prima dell’arrivo dei barbari.

Da quando le guerre di conquista erano finite, era cessato anche l’afflusso degli schiavi. E quindi i grandi proprietarierano ben contenti di assoldare come contadini quelli piccoli, dopo everne ricomprato le terre. Costro, dal canto proprio, cercavano un padrone: non solo per sottrasi alla Tributaria, ma anche per avere in lui un protettore nello scompiglio che si andava accentuando. Il grande feudatario, che sin qui aveva vissuto un po’ nel suo palazzo a Roma, un po’ nella sua villa di campagna, comincia a cambiare visionomia, e si trasforma nel potente che e’ gia’ l’inizio del Feudalesimo. La villa che finora tirava soltanto al comodo e al bello perche’ alla sua protezione accudivano i Prefetti e i Generali con le loro forze di polizia, adesso cerca anche la sicurezza e si trasforma piano piano in castello, cioe’ in fortilizio, perche’ lo Stato non e’ piu’ sempre in grado di difenderla dai briganti che infestano le contrade e dai “federati” che cominciano a calarvi e con essi spesso si confondono. Quello che invece non cambia e’ il rapporto umano fra il padrone ed il colono, che si e’ da poco sostituito allo schiavo ma che il padrone seguita a trattare come tale.

Questa e’ una delle ragioni per cui il Feudalesimo, fenomeno tipicamente germanico, in Italia attecchi’ prima che altrove, ma vi ebbe anche la vita piu’ corta. I barbari che non si erano allenati al comando sugli schiavi, avevano del vassallaggio un’idea molto piu’ umana dei Romani, perche’ lo esercitavano sui loro fratelli, quindi con molte limitazioni e garanzie. I Romani invece si erano sempre riconosciuti il diritto di disporre della vita dei loro dipendenti, e vi avevano contratto una specie di vizio mentale. Paolino di Pella si congratulava della propria mentalita’ scrivendo, in questi tempi, di essersi sempre contentato, quanto a concubine, delle serve: il che costituiva, secondo lui, solo l’esercizio di un diritto. In questo contado scarsamente popolato da una plebe di mezzadri e di braccianti senz’altra protezione che quella grazisamente concessa dai potenti, solo costoro vivevano agiatamente, perche’ quasi tutto il reddito veniva rastrellato a Roma. Ma anche qui ci si guardava dal distribuirlo equamente. Mentre Simmaco iscriveva nel suo registro dei conti la spesa di oltre cinquecentomilioni di lire per uno spettacolo nel Circo, dove trenta gladiatori sassoni preferivano strangolarsi ciascuno con le proprie mani piuttosto che sbudellarsi l’un l’altro, un vasto proletariato viveva solo di sussidi, di elemosine e di piccoli intrallazzi, approfittando di ogni disordine per dedicarsi al saccheggio di banche e negozi.

Ad Ammiano Marcellino, che vi giunse alla fine del quarto secolo da Antiochia, Roma fece l’impressione di una citta; piacevole e corrotta, dove la raffinatezza e la crudelta’, l’intelligenza ed il cinismo, il lusso e la miseria, la tradizione e l’anarchia si mescolavano in dosi abbastanza robuste. Ammiano scriveva in un latino un po’ imparaticcio, ma era un imparziale galantuomo, a cui il paganesimo non impedi’ per esempio di condannare Giuliano l’Apostata per I suoi tentativi contro le liberta’ cristiane. E al suo giudizio ci crediamo, anche perche’ conferma sia il ritratto in rosa di Simmaco che quello in nero di Salviano. Le due Rome, quella splendida dei pochi e quella miserabile dei molti, convivevano. E si capisce come’essa potesse apparire diversa secondo gli occhi che la guardavano. Altri due cronisti forestieri, Macrobio e Claudiano, non videro che la prima, forse perche’ ebbero la ventura di essere accolti nella buona societa’. Ma le loro descrizioni puzzano di omaggio. Anch’essi, tuttavia ci aiutano a capire come mai Roma accettasse con tanta facilita’ la sua spoliazione del titolo di Capitale dell’Impero.

Tutte le decadenze in tutti i luoghi e in tutti i tempi sono contrassegnate dai medesimi fenomeni: le accresciute distanze sociali fra un numero sempre piu’ piccolo di privilegiati e una massa sempre piu’ grande di derelitti, l’affievolimento di ogni vincolo di solidarieta’, e la totale indifferenza di tutti agli interessi della comunita’.

Nei salotti della ricca Roma, quasi tutta pagana, si parlava di Cicerone e di Catullo, si citava Aristotele, si corbellavano I Generali barbari, le loro rozze maniere, i loro errori di pronuncia e di ortografia. Nei “bassi” della povera Roma cristiana ci si arrangiava come si poteva e si era troppo impegnati a mettere daccordo il desinare con la cena per potersi preoccupare dell’Impero, dello Stato, del Passato e del Futuro.

Che un lanzichenecco tedesco cresciuto alla corte di Attila, come Odoacre, avesse rispedito le aquile e i fasci a Costantinopoli e stesse governando l’Italia come un Re indipendente, non interessava a nessuno.

A intendere e ad esprimere in tutta la sua grandezza e tragicita’ questa catastrofe ci fu solo un poeta. Ma non era romano, e nemmeno italiano. Era un gallo nativo forse di Tolosa, forse di Narbona, si chiamava Rutilio Namaziano, veniva dalla carriera amministrativa, ed era prefetto in Toscana e in Umbria. Prima di tornarsene in patria bsotto l’incalzare delle invasioni visigote e vandale, volle pagare il suo debito di gratitudine a Roma, che aveva fatto di lui un uomo civile e colto, dedicandole un’apostrofe che dimostra quanto quella civilta’ e cultura egli le avesse assimilate. Forse il suo libro “De reditu” e’ l’ultimo capolavoro della latinita’ classica. Comunque, lo e’ certamente l’addio all’Urbe che vi e’ incluso:

Ascolta, regina bellissima di un mondo che hai fatto tuo,

o Roma, accolta negli stellati cieli, asolta madre di uomini e di dei.

Non lontani dal cielo siamo noi quando ci troviamo nei tuoi templi….

Tu spargi i tuoi doni eguali ai raggi del sole

per ovunque in cerchio fluttua l’Oceano…

Non ti fermarono le sabbie infocate di Libia,

non l’estrema terra armata di ghiaccio ti respinse….

Facesti una patria sola di genti diverse,

giovo’ a chi era senza leggi diventare tuo tributario

poiche’ tu trasformavi gli uomini in cittadini

e una citta’ facesti di cio’ che prima non era che un globo.


Non si poteva dire di piu’, ne’ meglio. Questo barbaroi dal cuore traboccante di affetto, di riconoscenza, di ammirazione, aveva composto per Roma il piu’ bell’epitaffio in un latino degno di Virgilio. Ma i Romani non lo lessero. E ancor oggi il nome di Namaziano e’ noto solo a pochi studiosi.

b) L’ULTIMA ROMA REPUBBLICHINA

Questa e’ la Roma che oggi ospita due Stati: la Citta’ del Vaticano (Santa Sede) e la Repubblica italiana.

La citta’ del Vaticano rappresenta lo Stato temporale della comunita’ cristiana che prende le redini della citta’ dal VI secolo dopo Cristo e non lo lascia fino alla sedicente unita’ d’Italia.

La Repubblica italiana rappresenta lo stato di una comunita’ unificata con la forza e tenuta assieme con l’inganno.

Alla Santa Sede ora non si pagano piu’ tributi, ma neanche essa ne paga per il mantenimento della citta’.

Alla Repubblica italiana si pagano tributi salatissimi che servono ad alimentare i suoi clientes, non certo per contribuire ad aiutare chi ne ha bisogno (vedi ultimi terremotati), per le quali imposte piu’ di un centinaio di piccoli imprenditori si sono suicidati. Strani costoro, che invece di ribellarsi si suicidano (ma che volete, questi sono gli Italiani).

Sia la Santa Sede (gia’ Papato) che la Repubblica italiana (gia’ Regno d’Italia e poi Impero) soffrono degli stessi problemi che afflissero la Roma imperiale: le accresciute distanze sociali fra un numero sempre piu’ piccolo di privilegiati e una massa sempre piu’ grande di derelitti, l’affievolimento di ogni vincolo di solidarieta’, e la totale indifferenza di tutti agli interessi della comunita’.

In entrambi questi Stati, corruzione, privilegi e ruberie sono gli elementi caratterstici della classe governante, incapace a governare, ma capacissima a depredare lo Stato. Addirittura molti Italiani confondono i privilegi, che chiamano “diritti acquisiti con le lotte sindacali” con i diritti naturali.

I diritti naturali sono innati ed uguali per tutti, mentre i privilegi sono acquisiti con la forza e diversi per ogni classe che ne gode.

Nel paragrafo precedente abbiamo citato: “La Tributaria era talmente corrotta e prevaricatrice che, stando a Salviano, per la prima volta nel terzo secolo si videro cittadini romani fuggire, per salvarsi, oltre la “cortina di ferro” del limes, e rifugiarsi presso i barbari.”

Nella Repubblica italiana le cose non sono affatto cambiate, ma qui i cittadini preferiscono il suicidio alla ribellione. Parlo con il massimo rispetto per questi suicidi che, invece di essere condannati, dovrebbero essere vendicati”.

Uno dei Ministri (tra i piu’ idioti) della Repubblica delle banane ha affermato pubblicamente che tutti coloro che se ne vanno dall’Italia costituiscono un bene, perche’ non hanno voglia di lavorare. Costui, oltre che essere idiota, e’ anche un ottimo camuffatore della realta’, perche’ deve proteggere le sue banane.

Nella Repubblica delle banane si verifica lo stesso fenomeno avuto nella Roma del tardo impero: “coloro che vivevano sulle tasse erano piu’ numerosi di coloro che dovevano pagarle.”

La Repubblica italiana ha circa cinquecentomila uomini in armi pronti a difenderla perche’ da essa ricevono lo stipendio; ha inoltre piu’ di dieci milioni di dipendenti pubblici, parapubblici, o collusi con il pubblico, che non hanno nessuna voglia di rinunciare ai loro privilgi e pronti a scendere in piazza per difenderli anche con la forza, visto che ne hanno perche’ ricevono lauti compensi.


Lo scrivente e’ demoralizzato e finanche mortificato per questa realta’ e, purtroppo, ancora non vede nessuno all’orizzonte capace di terminare questo schifo con la stessa sorte che tocco’ alla Roma del Tardo Impero, ma non dispera. Giambattista Vico non ha mai sbagliato con la sua teoria dei “Corsi e ricosri storici”. Prima o poi ci sara’ un nuovo Odoacre che fara’ fare alla Repubblica delle banane la stessa fine dell’Impero romano d’occidente: ci sara’ certamente qualcuno che non potendo riconsegnare le insegne a nessun altro, probabilmente le brucera’ e con esse brucera’ le chiappe a tutti gli schifosi privilegiati che usurpano gli interessi della collettivita’.

Meditate, gente, meditate e, soprattutto, ribellatevi.


Costa adriatica, aprile 2017.

InVision New Mobile App Streamlines Design Previews and Process
InVision New Mobile App Streamlines Design Previews and Process
abduzeedo Jul 10, 2018

InVision just announced their new mobile app and it's a  major step in putting mobile design at the forefront. Designers can experience their prototypes right from a device, allowing for instant spot-checking and feedback. Users can also write comments, sketch an idea, or drop in screenshots. Any changes to the desktop update in real-time on mobile, which for me is always the best feature, especially when you are running user testing.

More and more it's awesome to see how InVision is setting a new industry standard for designers to share ideas, get feedback, and iterate on-the-go, giving them the tools to move designs forward faster, from anywhere. In a world that increasingly relies on mobile products and experiences, InVision is helping designers meet these needs.

“At Aaptiv, we help our members achieve their fitness goals and become a better version of themselves, and it's crucial that our product's design is on par with the world-class workouts and programs created by our professional trainers. InVision's mobile functionality helps us to quickly test multiple ideas against each other early in our design process and get executive buy-in so that we can ensure we're building the best possible experience for our members.”

– Max Wendkos, Product Designer at Aaptiv

I live in a hot climate as do many Midget owners. I have dreamt up a solution to cooling the interior of the car which will provide a very low cost solution: can be easily retrofitted without modifying the vehicle: requires very little energy from the battery: does not alter the under hood appearance; can be used in other applications.

The answer lies in the application of the principle of the latent heat of evaporation - the most efficient method of cooling available. The conversion of water from liquid to gas requires a lot of energy and this concept can be used in my cooling system.

Firstly, apologies, my computer is being fixed and I am using my wife's machine and can't find out how to draw a diagram......

Take the air ducting of the car and insert a corrugated aluminium foil tube, like the type used in kitchen fume.extraction: add spacers so that it does not touch the sides of the outer tube: make and fit 2 O rings and fit to each end of the tube so that the inner and outer tubes are sealed from each other.

At the end furthest from the heater box drill a couple of small (3mm) holes in the O ring to suit the same size plastic hose at 180 degrees to each other: make up a T of plastic tube and block the ends with sealant: pierce the tubes with a small pin: push the tubes into the holes. Connect the tube to a small 12 volt fuel/water pump: connect the pump to a water container which will provide filtered water.

When in use the system will provide an extremely fine mist which surrounds the aluminium tube. As hot air passes up it then the mist will instantly cool the tube and subsequently the air passing through it. There will probably be a need for a couple of small holes in the front O ring to provide pressure to drive the mist the whole length of the tube for maximum cooling and a vent at the heater box end to reduce pressure. This system should reduce the air temperature by at least 10 to 15 degrees C. If a Peltier Effect crystal is used to reduce the temperature of the misting water then it could well be an arctic blast for a little more money and cost!

I don't have the time or energy but this is a project for a college, high school or university who are looking for an eco project. Can anybody suggest or arrange, possibly, themselves, make a prototype?

Incidentally, I have seen a machine tool make a component using the normal flooding method of oil & water cooling and then the same component using misting. Afterwards the flooded component was too hot to touch whilst the misted one was at room temperature.... it works!!

Looking forward to your comments.

          Cost-Efficient Orchestration of Containers in Clouds: A Vision, Architectural Elements, and Future Directions. (arXiv:1807.03578v1 [cs.DC])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Rajkumar Buyya, Maria A. Rodriguez, Adel Nadjaran Toosi, Jaeman Park

This paper proposes an architectural framework for the efficient orchestration of containers in cloud environments. It centres around resource scheduling and rescheduling policies as well as autoscaling algorithms that enable the creation of elastic virtual clusters. In this way, the proposed framework enables the sharing of a computing environment between differing client applications packaged in containers, including web services, offline analytics jobs, and backend pre-processing tasks. The devised resource management algorithms and policies will improve utilization of the available virtual resources to reduce operational cost for the provider while satisfying the resource needs of various types of applications. The proposed algorithms will take factors that are previously omitted by other solutions into consideration, including 1) the pricing models of the acquired resources, 2) and the fault-tolerability of the applications, and 3) the QoS requirements of the running applications, such as the latencies and throughputs of the web services and the deadline of the analytical and pre-processing jobs. The proposed solutions will be evaluated by developing a prototype platform based on one of the existing container orchestration platforms.

Authors: Martin Sulzmann, Kai Stadtmueller

Understanding the run-time behavior of concurrent programs is a challenging task. A popular approach is to establish a happens- before relation via vector clocks. Thus, we can identify bugs and per- formance bottlenecks, for example, by checking if two con icting events may happen concurrently. We employ a two-phase method to derive vector clock information for a wide range of concurrency features that includes all of the message-passing features in Go. The rst phase (instrumentation and tracing) yields a run-time trace that records all events related to message-passing concurrency that took place. The second phase (trace replay) is carried out o ine and replays the recorded traces to infer vector clock information. Trace replay operates on thread-local traces. Thus, we can observe behav- ior that might result from some alternative schedule. Our approach is not tied to any speci c language. We have built a prototype for the Go programming language and provide empirical evidence of the usefulness of our method.


          The SAGE Project: a Storage Centric Approach for Exascale Computing. (arXiv:1807.03632v1 [cs.DC])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Sai Narasimhamurthy, Nikita Danilov, Sining Wu, Ganesan Umanesan, Steven Wei-der Chien, Sergio Rivas-Gomez, Ivy Bo Peng, Erwin Laure, Shaun de Witt, Dirk Pleiter, Stefano Markidis

SAGE (Percipient StorAGe for Exascale Data Centric Computing) is a European Commission funded project towards the era of Exascale computing. Its goal is to design and implement a Big Data/Extreme Computing (BDEC) capable infrastructure with associated software stack. The SAGE system follows a "storage centric" approach as it is capable of storing and processing large data volumes at the Exascale regime.

SAGE addresses the convergence of Big Data Analysis and HPC in an era of next-generation data centric computing. This convergence is driven by the proliferation of massive data sources, such as large, dispersed scientific instruments and sensors where data needs to be processed, analyzed and integrated into simulations to derive scientific and innovative insights. A first prototype of the SAGE system has been been implemented and installed at the Julich Supercomputing Center. The SAGE storage system consists of multiple types of storage device technologies in a multi-tier I/O hierarchy, including flash, disk, and non-volatile memory technologies. The main SAGE software component is the Seagate Mero Object Storage that is accessible via the Clovis API and higher level interfaces. The SAGE project also includes scientific applications for the validation of the SAGE concepts.

The objective of this paper is to present the SAGE project concepts, the prototype of the SAGE platform and discuss the software architecture of the SAGE system.


          Rule- and context-based dynamic business process modelling and simulation. (arXiv:1807.03649v1 [cs.SE])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Olegas Vasilecas, Diana Kalibatiene, Dejan Lavbič

The traditional approach used to implement a business process (BP) in today's information systems (IS) no longer covers the actual needs of the dynamically changing business. Therefore, a necessity for a new approach of dynamic business process (DBP) modelling and simulation has arisen. To date, existing approaches to DBP modelling and simulation have been incomplete, i.e. they lack theory or a case study or both. Furthermore, there is no commonly accepted definition of BDP. Current BP modelling tools are suitable almost solely for the modelling and simulation of a static BP that strictly prescribes which activities, and in which sequence, to execute. Usually, a DBP is not defined strictly at the beginning of its execution, and it changes under new conditions at runtime. In our paper, we propose six requirements of DBP and an approach for rule- and context-based DBP modelling and simulation. The approach is based on changing BP rules, BP actions and their sequences at process instance runtime, according to the new business system context. Based on the proposed approach, a reference architecture and prototype of a DBP simulation tool were developed. Modelling and simulation were carried out using this prototype, and the case study shows correspondence to the needs of dynamically changing business, as well as possibilities for modelling and simulating DBP.

          Data-Driven Forecasting of High-Dimensional Chaotic Systems with Long Short-Term Memory Networks. (arXiv:1802.07486v4 [physics.comp-ph] UPDATED)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Pantelis R. Vlachas, Wonmin Byeon, Zhong Y. Wan, Themistoklis P. Sapsis, Petros Koumoutsakos

We introduce a data-driven forecasting method for high-dimensional chaotic systems using long short-term memory (LSTM) recurrent neural networks. The proposed LSTM neural networks perform inference of high-dimensional dynamical systems in their reduced order space and are shown to be an effective set of nonlinear approximators of their attractor. We demonstrate the forecasting performance of the LSTM and compare it with Gaussian processes (GPs) in time series obtained from the Lorenz 96 system, the Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equation and a prototype climate model. The LSTM networks outperform the GPs in short-term forecasting accuracy in all applications considered. A hybrid architecture, extending the LSTM with a mean stochastic model (MSM-LSTM), is proposed to ensure convergence to the invariant measure. This novel hybrid method is fully data-driven and extends the forecasting capabilities of LSTM networks.

Authors: Timnit Gebru, Jamie Morgenstern, Briana Vecchione, Jennifer Wortman Vaughan, Hanna Wallach, Hal Daumeé III, Kate Crawford

Currently there is no standard way to identify how a dataset was created, and what characteristics, motivations, and potential skews it represents. To begin to address this issue, we propose the concept of a datasheet for datasets, a short document to accompany public datasets, commercial APIs, and pretrained models. The goal of this proposal is to enable better communication between dataset creators and users, and help the AI community move toward greater transparency and accountability. By analogy, in computer hardware, it has become industry standard to accompany everything from the simplest components (e.g., resistors), to the most complex microprocessor chips, with datasheets detailing standard operating characteristics, test results, recommended usage, and other information. We outline some of the questions a datasheet for datasets should answer. These questions focus on when, where, and how the training data was gathered, its recommended use cases, and, in the case of human-centric datasets, information regarding the subjects' demographics and consent as applicable. We develop prototypes of datasheets for two well-known datasets: Labeled Faces in The Wild and the Pang \& Lee Polarity Dataset.

          Second Rate      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
It is no longer possible to miss the many areas in which the United States has fallen behind or declined to become second rate. In many cases progress is being made only in select regions, while the rest of the nation declines or is stagnant as other countries improve.

* Health Care and Substance Abuse.

We pay far too much for weak results that don't cover everyone. Our health care system for the poor is worse than that of many third world countries. Our mental health care is poor. We have high rates of infant and maternal mortality compared to our peers. We have an anti-vax subculture that threatens our nation's safety. We have very high rates of STDs in African-American communities and to a lesser extent other minority communities. We are dismantling our ability to respond to epidemic disease outbreaks. Much of the rural U.S. is seeing declining life expectancies. Access to abortion is declining.

The U.S. is doing a particularly poor job  at adapting culturally and in terms of nutrition and health care and lifestyle to more sedentary work and rapidly changing diets, resulting in an obesity epidemic.

We do a miserable job of managing opioid addiction and abuse. We do a miserable job of addressing psychoactive drugs for the most part. Our alcohol regulation for young adults is hypocritical and ineffectual.

Exceptions: Obamacare made significant strides in reducing the number of uninsured Americans in states that fully adopted it, but is being actively degraded and resisted.

The U.S. does better in inventing new treatments, although often not approving them very quickly. 

We are making progress in reducing teen pregnancy with targeted programs making long term contraception available but it is painfully slow and uneven. 

The U.S. has made great progress in reducing tobacco use. The U.S. is making good progress in marijuana regulation in many states.

* Education and Higher Education

We provide poor curriculums for the non-college bound, and too many career opportunities now require excessive educational credentials. The economic prospects for primary and secondary teachers has declined causing this sector to attract less top talent.

We spend lots of time and effort and money on foreign language instruction that produces very few fluent foreign language speakers due to poor instruction methods and poor foreign language instruction timing. Foreign language instruction that works needs to start younger and include significant periods (multiple weeks at a time or more) of language immersion instruction.

We have a significant number of very bad schools, especially in predominantly minority inner city schools. We have a significant minority of students in religious schools and home schooling who are taught grossly inaccurate material in science and social studies by parents and teachers who are themselves unqualified and ignorant.

Too many academically talented Americans aren't going to college because they can't afford to do so. This is mostly a function of financing higher education poorly. Student loan debt has been a major new problem for the current generation of higher education system graduates. Too many students are admitted to programs that they are likely to fail in and then burdened with heavy student loan debt nonetheless. The cost of higher education has soared with much of the increase attributable to rising administrative costs.

We have done almost nothing to increase the supply of new medical degree recipients despite surging demand for them. In law, we have done the opposite and opened many new law schools with very low bar passage rates despite a significant increase in the number of lawyers being produced each year.

Exceptions: The quality of elite U.S. higher educational institutions is still first rate and attracted the best and brightest from around the world until recent immigration policies have discouraged foreign students from coming to the U.S. 

Many countries with superior primary and secondary educational systems in developed countries continue to have less rigorous and less effective higher educational instruction and research in many areas relative to selective U.S. colleges and universities.

* Public Safety, Criminal Justice and Human Rights

Our murder rate is too high. Our violent crime rates are too high. Our gun related accidental death rate is too high. Our gun related suicide rate is too high. Much of this is related to non-existent or ineffectual gun control measures.

Our incarceration rate is far too high. We still overuse the death penalty in an unfair manner. We impose far too many life without possibility of parole sentences and equivalent to life in prison sentences. Our sex offender registration programs are destructive overkill. We try to many juveniles as adults. We impose to many sentences, especially in recidivist cases, that are grossly disproportionate to the offense. Race unduly affects criminal justice outcomes. We greatly overuse solitary confinement. We greatly overuse pre-trial incarceration. We incarcerate too many people for what amounts to an inability to pay debts. We use the criminal justice system to deal with what are fundamentally mental health problems. Our jails and prisons are controlled by gangs rather than prison officials.

Civil remedies for human rights violations like improper use of force by law enforcement are gradually growing harder to secure. Our immigration policy is a nightmare of human rights violations. Our President encourages human rights violations and mandates them in some cases.

Exceptions: Crime rates in the U.S. have declined dramatically since the mid-1990s even though they are still high by international standards.

* Democracy and Corruption

Our electoral system has stunningly low voter turnout. Voter suppression tools like restrictive voter registration laws, voter-ID laws and felon disenfranchisement laws unfairly prevent people from voting. Our single member district plurality election system inappropriately stifles third-party voices, suppressed voter turnout and suffers from pervasive gerrymandering (including the constitutionally enshrined electoral college and U.S. Senate) that has resulted in a huge disconnect between voter preferences and electoral outcomes. Incumbency provides disproportionately and unreasonably strong electoral advantages. Our political parties and voters both seem incapable of screening out grossly unqualified and extremist candidates. Our vote tallying mechanisms are vulnerable to hacking. Our long ballots and declining availability and quality of coverage of politics in the news media cause many electoral decisions to be made by ill informed voters. A huge proportion of our population (ca. 30%) ignores reliable sources of information and science in favor of demonstrably false propaganda and religious doctrine. Our campaign finance laws to not achieve their intended objectives. Money rich special interests routinely overpower majority preferences. Judicial elections do a poor job of filling the bench with the best possible judges and encourages corruption.

The dramatic decline in unions and civil society groups involving in person participation (like service clubs and churches) has undermined the civic capacity of the United States.

Corruption is on the rise, in the form of nepotism, executive branch officials who actively undermine their agencies' missions, political appointees who are grossly unqualified, personal financial interests and campaign contributions that unduly impact political decisions, and political disregard for the constitution, the rule of law, political norms and human rights. Court decisions have made it harder to prosecute corrupt officials. Corrupt officials are being pardoned. Civl forfeiture programs with bad incentives have encouraged corruption.

Exceptions: Some states have adopted same day voter registration, have reduced felon disenfranchisement, and have made wider use of mail in ballots to increase turnout. 

Maine has adopted rank choice voting.

Some states are less corrupt than others.

* Transportation, Energy, Environment, Urban Planning and Housing.

The U.S. underfunds roads and bridges leading to decaying infrastructure due in significant part to declining inflation adjusted gas tax revenues.

The U.S. has too strong incentive (including tax incentives) to buy fuel inefficient vehicles and too weak incentives to build less polluting and more fuel efficient (or electric vehicles).

The U.S. has an inferior passenger rail system that is slow and economically a failure. Passenger rail accidents in the U.S. seem to be more common. The U.S. has an anemic passenger bus system that is largely restricted to the disabled and very poor. The U.S. lags considerably in having walkable and bicycle friendly cities. 

The U.S. has unnecessary widespread homelessness and deep poverty. The U.S. has too much urban sprawl and unaffordable housing, in significant part due to excessive restrictions on housing density and prohibitions of small or inexpensive housing methods. The U.S. is lagging in rapid and efficient pre-manufactured component housing in its construction industry, which is lagging in innovations.

The productive individuals and firms in the U.S. economy leave economically declining areas (mostly rural and Rust Belt communities) rapidly, leaving less mobile individuals behind in deteriorating circumstances in these areas.

The U.S. was once a global leader in nuclear power production. Our industry has stagnated relative to the nuclear power industry in other parts of the world, and we have failed to adopt new technologies or build more plants. 

The U.S. is rapidly scaling back environmental regulations and is the only country in the world not fighting climate change through the Paris Accords, and waging war on solar power. Fracking has caused many environmental harms which are not sufficiently regulated and safety regulation for oil and gas workers has seriously slipped.

The U.S. lags in energy technologies including tidal energy, energy conservation, and co-generation. The U.S. uses heating oil excessively when it is a less than optimal heating fuel.

The arid western United States allocates a very large share of its water supply to very inefficient and marginally economically productive agricultural water users. Not infrequently, scarce water supplies are used to grow water hungry crops in inappropriate places for such crops relative to other climate areas.

Security theater has dramatically undermined the effective speed and convenience of commercial passenger air travel, while only modestly increasing safety.

Exceptions: The U.S. has greatly reduced the use of coal to generate electricity in recent years, mostly in favor of cleaner natural gas, wind power and solar power. 

The U.S. is making progress in developing mass produced electric cars and trucks, and in advancing critical battery and energy storage technologies. 

The U.S. is making progress in developing self-driving vehicles. There has been modest progress in developing intracity passenger rail systems. 

The U.S. interstate highway system is still largely unmatched globally and make automotive travel between cities fast (especially with 75 mile per hour speed limits in many cases) and quite safe. 

Drunk driving deaths are down considerably.

* Manufacturing, Taxation, Trade, Unions and Intellectual Property

While automation has increased the productivity per person of manufacturing workers (as well as the skill levels of these jobs), offshoring of manufacturing (particularly to China and to a lesser extent Mexico) in pursuit of lower wages and less labor and environmental regulation, leaving the U.S. with a hollow manufacturing sector that is also less innovative because it doesn't deal up close on a daily basis, en mass with the problems associated with manufacturing goods.


Via Wikipedia. In the period of rapid Union membership growth from 1930 to 1955 almost all union members were in the private sector: "At the apex of union density in the 1940s, only about 9.8% of public employees were represented by unions, while 33.9% of private, non-agricultural workers had such representation." The public sector also made up a smaller share of the work force in the 1940s than it does today.

The decline of the U.S. manufacturing sector which used to be one of the bastions of the union movement and its vulnerability to further offshoring, has decimated the U.S. private sector union movement. The percentage of U.S. private sector employees who are in labor unions (6.5% as of 2017) is now as low as it was in the 1930s (and even a century ago in 1918), before most U.S. labor laws protecting the right to unionize were enacted (after almost continuous decline since 1954), and unionization rates are generally significantly lower in "red states" largely as a result of anti-union state policies. Only one state out of the 25 states with the lowest unionization rate (New Mexico) is not a "right to work" state. Only four of the top 25 states plus D.C. in unionization rates are "right to work states" (Kentucky, West Virginia, Nevada and Michigan). Private sector unionization rates declined 61% from 1983 to 2017 and has declined by 81% from the peak in the 1940s to 2017. Public sector unions are much more healthy with 34.4% of wage and salary workers in the public sector in a union, a number that has been increasing, by 350% since the 1940s and have grown significantly even since 1983. And, there was a roughly 8 fold growth in union membership percentages from 1897 to 1918.

Obvious places to expand U.S. manufacturing, like intact component modules to be shipped to construction sites, have not taken off.

The decline of manufacturing has not affected all developed countries. Many high wage developed countries with strong environmental laws and strong labor laws still have vibrant manufacturing economies.

But, tariffs, quotas, trade wars and harsh immigration policies that the current administration has utilized to counteract offshoring have largely made the situation worse and not better, for example, encouraging notable parts of the already scarce U.S. manufacturing base to move abroad.

Unduly strong intellectual property laws have crossed a threshold where they have become a barrier to a more productive economy instead of encouraging it. International tax rules, meanwhile, have made it far too easy to legally reduce or indefinitely defer taxable income in industries with significant intellectual property contributions.

Bad sales tax rules have accelerated the retail apocalypse in which brick and mortar stores are in decline due to competition from online retailers.

Tax breaks on physical capital unaccompanied by tax breaks for human capital have encouraged job killing automation at the margin where technology based solutions wouldn't have been adopted but for tax incentives in that U.S. tax code.

Exception: The U.S. still leads in producing entertainment content and patents, although this productivity is confined to a few highly productive regions like California and New York.

The U.S. still has lots of export driving production in the agricultural and mining industries, and is less oil import dependent than it was in the past.

Many "foreign" automobile companies have built factories in the United States.

The U.S. has a few sectors like aircraft, where it is still a manufacturing leader, again, in geographically concentrated regions, mostly in blue states.

Overall, in the U.S. consumer goods are cheap in inflation adjusted and growth adjusted terms, although certain kinds of services are now much more expensive.

* The Military

The U.S. has record low numbers of front line ground troops, limiting its capacity for war fighting despite immense military spending. This is particularly a concern when high technology military systems that are expensive, take time to produce in large numbers and take a great amount of training to use, reduce the usefulness of rapid expansion of its ranks through a military draft.

The U.S. spends far too much on the military relative to its needs, or what it gets for its money, particularly with regard to spending on major weapons systems like surface combatants, manned warplanes, guided munitions, tanks and slug throwing artillery. The U.S. military's high cost structure greatly impairs its ability to respect effectively and efficiently to asymmetric threats like the 17 year old war in Afghanistan. Military procurement is pervasively corrupt.

The U.S. military has been slow to adjust its force mix to reflect the dramatically increased accuracy of precision munitions, drone and satellite based reconnaissance systems, and automation that are now available.

The U.S. invests heavily in a blue sea surface combatant and nuclear attack submarine force that is not justified by any current threat and in the case of the surface warship fleet is vulnerable to a variety of emerging threats, when other resources would better address the threats these forces are designed to address. 

The U.S. Navy has also unreasonably resisted exchanging many fighter aircraft on aircraft carriers with equally capable or more capable armed drone aircraft fulfilling many of the same roles; the U.S. Air Force has likewise unreasonably resisted replacing fighter aircraft with equally capable or more capable armed drone aircraft, despite the successful development of prototypes for both roles.

The U.S. invests heavily in expensive supersonic stealth fighters while failing to procure less expensive but adequate air power in volume for lower threat missions.

The U.S. has failed to take diplomatic action to reduce conventional weapons threats driving so much of its expenditures in a handful of hot spots like East Asia and the Persian Gulf.

The U.S. has underinvested its ample resources in asymmetric warfare resources, in nation building, in human capital investments like language training, in littoral combat capabilities, in close air support for ground troops, in fixed wing troop transportation options, and in fire support for amphibious and coastal troops. The U.S. military has been slow to adopt clearly superior innovations in high volume, low cost systems like its small arms.

The U.S. strategic arsenal of nuclear weapons is run by units with a record of horrible internal discipline and grossly outdated technologies that have never been upgraded.

The increasing cultural divide between professional volunteer soldiers in the U.S. military and the general public is concerning.

Exceptions: While the U.S. pays an immense amount for the military it has, its most advanced systems in many areas are world class or competitive with world class system. For example, the military has made great strides in development active defense technologies against all manner of incoming ordinance and missiles.

Its troops are generally very well trained and are reliably subject to civilian authority.

It’s great new to does on a gluten free diet, but the chickpea-pasta more healthy in general, and some say it’s even tasty. Banza is a line of pasta products from a company with the same name, operating in Detroit, Michigan, since 2013. They manufacture pasta in a few standard forms, such as Fusilli, Conchiglie, Pene, and more. But what makes their pasta special is not form or color, but that it is made not from chickpeas ruther then wheat flour. Why should anybody want to eat pasta made of chickpeas? Well, besides the apparent advantage for gluten-sensitive people, it’s also a good choice for people with other health issues in mind. In an interview they recently gave to The Hafingtons’ Rick Camilleri, founders Brian and Scott Rudolph, explain that their product is more nutritious and healthy in any way.

          CeramicSpeed's Bearing-Based Chainless Bicycle System       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In conjunction with the University of Colorado's Mechanical Engineering Department, bicycle parts manufacturer CeramicSpeed has launched an ambitious initiative: To produce a bicycle with no chain nor derailleur.

At this year's Eurobike show they unveiled Driven, a 13-speed "prototype" ("concept bike" would be more accurate, as the thing doesn't actually work) that uses bearings and a wicked-looking 13-ring cog that you don't want to slam your shin into:

Driven creates 49% less friction when compared to the market leading chain and derailleur drivetrain. A traditional chain and derailleur drivetrain contains eight points of sliding friction, which is generated from the articulation of the chain at these points. Driven impressively eliminates all eight points of sliding friction.

Naysayers and skeptics will say the cost, plus the additional weight of whatever housing system would be required to keep mud out, would nullify the efficiency of the design. And there's probably a very good reason that bicycle chains have persisted since their introduction in the late 1800s. But ultimately, innovation comes about by people and companies spending a lot of money to try out new things. So I'd say we learn what we can from this, and be grateful that it's not our money.

Plus I can't deny that if they get that pinion working, it'd be awfully cool to see in action.

The spheres were originally intended for Felicity Smoak's program for "prototypes for the future" while still working at Palmer Technologies. After Curtis quit the job and joined Team Arrow as Mr. Terrific he continued working on the spheres in order to help him fight crime. Although at first they were not functional, by the time the team encountered Vigilante, he used them successfully to knock him out.

Mini Electric: 2019 EV to get concept-inspired styling Battery-powered Mini development is at an advanced stage; brand boss Sebastian Mackensen said it'll handle like a true Mini

Mini believes its first series production electric model, pictured here testing in prototype form in the Alps, marks a pivotal point in its history because it directly links to the core values for which Mini was created.

The car will be marked out by distinctive wheels carried over from the concept among other styling tweaks, although speaking to Autocar at the 2018 Mini launch in Brussels, brand boss Sebastian Mackensen suggested the design of the Mini Electric will be toned down from the concept because “Mini doesn’t need to make a big statement saying we want to be cool and electric any more”. Instead, the final production car’s design will mix the updated look of the 2018 Mini models with aerodynamic features of the concept.

These include veins that channel air around the body and a grille-less nose, as well as an air extractor slot behind the front wheel – similar to the one featured on the BMW 8 Series concept. The electric Mini concept also has a more heavily sculpted bodyside and a neat intake with a tiny spoiler in front of the rear wheel.

Mini exterior design boss Christopher Weil referred to this as the “efficiency layer” at the concept’s reveal last year. He said: “The way you manage airflow is specific for every individual car, but the main aerodynamic principles are the same. It’s very good for the drag coefficient when you have an opening behind the wheels so that the air can flow out, rather than just creating turbulence [inside the wheel wells].” He admitted that the unusual asymmetric wheel design is heavily influenced by 1980s car design.

Mackensen suggested several of these features could remain on the final car, but that “it will be a car that clearly shows it’s part of the latest Mini hatch family”. He described the finished product as a “fusion” that “will definitely be recognisable as being the electric Mini, but it will not be the concept entirely”.

Mackensen also said he believes the Mini Electric is the car that Alec Issigonis, who was responsible for the original Mini, would have created had he been alive today. “We always joke and say if Issigonis would invent the Mini today, it would definitely be an electric car,” said Mackensen. “It is the answer to current challenges, as the original Mini was in 1959.”

The car, first previewed by the Mini Electric concept of 2017, was first spotted undergoing cold weather testing, where the components and range of a development mule based on the pre-facelift Mini is being examined in sub-zero conditions. Its handling was also being assessed in these extremely slippery conditions; Mackensen has confidently predicted that the EV Mini will actually handle more like the original Mini philosophy had intended due to its lower centre of gravity.

“We always talk about go-kart feeling and probably the electric Mini will bring that to another level,” he said. “The torque and the responsiveness, combined with the low centre of weight – it will stick to the ground even more [than the combustion-engined car].”

Although the car’s range is not yet confirmed, the latest i3 of Mini parent BMW offers clues about what’s possible using the group’s electric technology. The i3 uses a synchronous electric motor delivering up to 181bhp and 199lb ft while offering up to 186 miles of range, according to NEDC tests.

Mini is undecided whether other variants of the electric hatchback, which will be based on the three-door body shape, will be launched in the first generation. Consistency across the brand’s line-up suggests a Cooper model could follow, but Mackensen said finding the balance between performance and range was the first priority.

Mini Electric production will be handled at the brand’s Oxford plant in 2019, 11 years after the Mini E was launched. Although the first electric Mini was limited to 600 examples, the future model will be produced with no cap on total numbers.

Wenn man mit einem spielbaren Prototypen den BAFTA Young Game Designers Award (YGD) gewinnt, darf man nicht nur stolz sein. Man könnte mit dieser renommierten britischen Auszeichnung im Rücken auch ein größeres Spiel machen. Genau das hat Dan Smith zusammen mit Ripstone Games verwirklicht: Und so wurde aus dem experimentellen Farben-Knobler ein umfangreiches Mystery-Adventure mit eigener Story, das jetzt für knapp fünfzehn Euro erhältlich ist. Ob The Spectrum Retreat auf PC, PS4 und Xbox One überzeugen kann, verrät der Test.

          Sportsman aviation 38% Corby Starlet      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The last time I flew this guy was about 7 years ago. Suffered an engine out forced landing. Gear caught a vole hole and it flipped over on its back, damaging the gear mount, but worst of all cracking the Honking large canopy. It was my last sortie before taking a hiatus. 

So I've decided to do what I always threatened to do: Strip it down and turn it into a true scale bird. 

Here is the before pic along with some of the real deal. 
There are many prototype starlets to choose from, however the canopy and cowl are very specific to this prototype, and so I will be keeping the markings the same. The basic airframe will remain; fortunately the model, to my eye is very faithful to the prototype. I have the china kote stripped off the wings, the mylar comes off easy enough but leaves a lot of the pigment/adhesive on the balsa. I've found that acetone works better than sandpaper to remove the lions share. Once I get the fuse disassembled and the covering off I will get to the business of repairing the landing damage and go about adding a full cockpit.

          Win a $20 GC: Freaking Fast by David Pereda      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. David will be awarding a $20 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

The city is Asheville, North Carolina, and the year is 2066. As renowned mathematician Alexandra Martin travels in her self-driving car to assassinate the love of her life, she reminisces about how they met and fell in love fifty years earlier in middle school when she was a thirteen year old poor math whiz and he a wealthy teenager. Alex recounts her struggles to be admitted to the best private school in the county, her happy teenage years running track, and her close relationship with three handsome and charming boys: Xavier, the intellectual; Andrew, the golden boy; and Vitali, the suave foreigner. One by one, she visits the three boys of her youth, now successful professionals in their sixties, one of whom is her intended victim.

Read an Excerpt:

The road curves away but Andrew keeps the car on a straight line, riding on the well-manicured lawn, heading at dizzying speed toward the trees. I glance at the speedometer. We are going at 135 miles an hour already and gaining speed. We’re going to crash. My heart is beating so fast I think it’s going to break through my ribcage.

The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry, I’m thinking. I’m never going to carry out my plan. In a few more seconds I’m going to be dead, together with Andrew.

Fifty meters from the trees, Andrew pulls on the stick shift and, suddenly, we are flying. What? Wings have sprouted from the door panels and a tail has emerged from the rear. Andrew pulls hard on the stick, so we can clear the trees. I quickly calculate the angle of ascension as my head flattens against the back of the seat. Estimating the distance to the tree line and the height of the trees, I use the Pythagorean Theorem to gauge the hypotenuse: the angle of ascension is forty-five degrees, maybe even a tad more. That’s steep.

Are we going to make it?

We do, barely, but we do.

‘Yeah!’ Andrew yells with excitement as he steadies Kitty. ‘Was that a rush, or what?’ He glances at me and starts laughing. ‘You look pale, Alex.’

I don’t remember Andrew being this crazy. He was always a little bit on the wild side, but this is not a little; this is a lot. I gasp for air and try to recover my composure. I can’t talk just yet. We are flying at about 500 feet above the ground. The lake looks beautiful below us. I check the speed – 220 miles an hour. Kitty is slicing through the air with hardly a sound, like a gust of wind.

‘This baby has a cruising speed of 300 miles an hour,’ Andrew says, as if reading my mind. ‘And a top speed of 400. This is the latest prototype.’

My heartbeat has slowed down enough for me to speak.

‘Impressive.’

I can confirm that they are very good on price and delivery. Typically 5 days from sending to receiving PCBs.
10 for $2 up to 100x100m makes them far cheaper for prototype boards than anyone in the UK or Europe.
Quality seems to be as good as anything closer to home and if you stick to standard white mask, green resits leaded tin and FR4 1.6mm board they are really good. Unleaded is available but the cost rockets and for a “see if it is OK” type PCB, which will be soldered with good old 60/40 solder anyway, it is fine.
I have used them several times since early 2017 and they have always delivered on time. The carriage costs are horrendous compared with the PCB cost, but they do come on time and are still far cheaper than 1 PCB from our EU supplier

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The rescue squad eventually told reporters that they would be unable to use Musk’s submarine. In a statement that read as unintended commentary on a common Silicon Valley blind spot, the rescue chief Narongsak Osatanakorn said of the submarine, “Although his technology is good and sophisticated, it’s not practical for this mission.” Musk’s involvement, though ultimately unnecessary, appears to have been well-intended and did not impede the operation.

However, Musk was not content to simply let this be a complimentary story about his admirable effort to save the team. Instead, he went on to challenge the BBC’s reporting and Osatanakorn’s authority.

Osatanakorn, for what it’s worth, is both the former provincial governor and the head of the rescue operation—the two titles are not mutually exclusive. Osatanakorn was set to step down over the weekend to allow a new governor to take his place, but has reportedly become so popular as the face of the rescue effort that he’s been allowed to stay on to supervise the operation.

In the same thread, Musk went on to argue with another Twitter user and complain that the press uses the “billionaire” label as an insult—not, say, an objective descriptor of his net worth.

The 182,500 LAr calorimeter cells will be readout at 40 MHz with a 16 bit dynamic range. First prototypes of the front-end electronics using 65 and 130 nm CMOS technologies have been tested. Design studies for the off-detectors digital filtering algorithms and bandwidth requirements have been performed. An overview of the LAr Phase-II electronic design is presented.

          A NASA prototype could save the lives of firefighters as blazes erupt in western U.S.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
TwitterFacebook

Nearly 40 large wildfires now burn across the United States. 

Blazes are expected this time of year, with hot air, dry land, and gusty winds stoking big fires throughout the western U.S. But today, twice as much land is burned than in the early 1980s, when the U.S. Forest Service started keeping good fire records each year. 

As hotter climes and increased drought parch the land, this means that modern wildland firefighters are exposed to more flames than they have been since record keeping began. 

SEE ALSO: California's wine country fire has been brewing for years

These firefighters are extremely well-trained, but sometimes the worst happens: Flames surround fire crews and force them to take cover under foil-like tents, called emergency fire shelters. Here, they wait for the scorching flames to pass overhead. Read more...

          7 things we learned about Apple's self-driving car project from the explosive FBI investigation into stolen trade secrets (AAPL)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Tim Cook in a car

  • The FBI has charged a former Apple employee with theft of trade secrets.
  • He worked on Apple's self-driving car project, Project Titan. 
  • The FBI's criminal complaint reveals that Project Titan is significantly larger than previously believed, based on the number of employees with access to information about the project. 

A Chinese engineer was boarding a flight from California to Beijing on July 7 when he was yanked off at the last minute by an FBI agent. 

It's not a spy movie — it's a real life story of trade secrets allegedly stolen from Apple, an American icon, for the purposes of potentially handing them to a small, relatively unknown Chinese company. 

Those secrets are related to self-driving cars, one of the hottest technologies in the world. Every major technology company is working on some project related to cars that drive themselves, but Apple's work in the space is particularly high-profile because of its secrecy and its reputation in Silicon Valley.

Self-driving car technology is valuable enough that Alphabet and Uber publicly fought in court over a $680 million deal that allegedly included Waymo self-driving trade secrets.

In this specific case, the FBI alleges that Xiaolang Zhang, a hardware engineer who used to work for Apple, stole trade secrets related to the company's work on self-driving car technology. He planned to work at Xiaopeng Motors, a little-known Chinese startup backed by Alibaba. 

Although Eric Proudfoot, the FBI agent investigating the case, said that the information in the Tuesday affidavit does not include every fact he's aware of, the complaint filed on Wednesday is still an incredible look behind the secrecy curtain into Apple's car project, as well as the security at Apple's Cupertino headquarters. The FBI had extensive cooperation from Apple, according to the criminal complaint.

Zhang faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if he's found guilty of the federal felony of theft of trade secrets. His lawyers requested a Mandarin translator. 

Here are 7 things we learned from the document:

Apple was designing hardware specifically for self-driving cars, including a proprietary chip 

The affidavit says that Zhang's role was on the Computer Team, and he designed and tested circuit boards to analyze sensor data. A 25-page PDF he allegedly pilfered contained electrical schematics for "one of the circuit boards that form Apple's proprietary infrastructure technology for the product." An employee also showed Zhang a "proprietary chip."

Screen Shot 2018 07 11 at 3.05.57 PM

Apple has 5,000 employees who have been told about "the Project," likely the self-driving car project

According to the complaint, 5,000 of Apple's 135,000 employees are "disclosed" on a project which is likely Project Titan, Apple's project name for self-driving car technology.

That's a significantly larger number of employees than was previously believed, although it's possible that these employees have only been told about a small portion of the project, such as cleaning digital maps for self-driving cars. 

Previously, the best public estimate for the number of Project Titan employees was 1,000. 

Screen Shot 2018 07 11 at 3.09.06 PM

"Disclosed" — how Apple handles secret projects internally 

The complaint also has a lot of information about how Apple handles "disclosure," or an internal term that describes when an employee can be told about a top-secret project, according to former employees. 

According to the complaint, a manager needs to "sponsor" an employee before he becomes "disclosed" on any given project, whether it's Project Titan or Apple's augmented reality division.

Asking whether an employee is "disclosed" is not an uncommon conversation at Apple, according to former employees. 

Apple's self-driving groups are organized under a "Research and Development organization"

Screen Shot 2018 07 11 at 3.09.47 PM

There's still a lot of mystery outside of Apple how it organizes its automotive project within the company. Apple has what's called a "functional structure," where employees report up to an executive depending on what their skill is. 

Software engineers, for example, are usually in Craig Federighi's group, because he's Apple's senior vice president of software engineering. 

Apple's self-driving group was reportedly led by Bob Mansfield, an Apple old-timer who had to be coaxed back out of retirement. But it was less clear where it ultimately fit inside the company.

One line from the complaint, however, suggested that it is under the "research and development" organization. 

Apple closely tracks the number of employees who can access information from its systems

Screen Shot 2018 07 11 at 3.13.54 PM

One key piece of information underpinning the government's case against Zhang is that Apple recorded the number of times he accessed information from "disclosed" internal Apple databases after he had resigned from the company. 

According to the criminal complaint, apparently Zhang generated "581 rows of user activity" two days before he resigned, according to Apple Information Security.

Apple was building prototypes and had requirements for power, battery system, and "drivetrain suspension mounts"

Screen Shot 2018 07 11 at 3.12.56 PM

Screen Shot 2018 07 11 at 3.13.01 PM

Some of the technical PDFs that Zhang allegedly stole described requirements for a prototype. Although Apple has publicly alluded to its car project, it has never confirmed that it planned to build custom prototypes of any car parts, including sensors. 

Apple has secrecy training specifically for its self-driving car project

In addition to the secrecy training for new hires and interns when they join Apple, apparently the self-driving car project had a separate secrecy training, too.

NOW WATCH: These 13 medical technologies are changing lives


          CeramicSpeed's Bearing-Based Chainless Bicycle System       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In conjunction with the University of Colorado's Mechanical Engineering Department, bicycle parts manufacturer CeramicSpeed has launched an ambitious initiative: To produce a bicycle with no chain nor derailleur.

At this year's Eurobike show they unveiled Driven, a 13-speed "prototype" ("concept bike" would be more accurate, as the thing doesn't actually work) that uses bearings and a wicked-looking 13-ring cog that you don't want to slam your shin into:

Driven creates 49% less friction when compared to the market leading chain and derailleur drivetrain. A traditional chain and derailleur drivetrain contains eight points of sliding friction, which is generated from the articulation of the chain at these points. Driven impressively eliminates all eight points of sliding friction.

Naysayers and skeptics will say the cost, plus the additional weight of whatever housing system would be required to keep mud out, would nullify the efficiency of the design. And there's probably a very good reason that bicycle chains have persisted since their introduction in the late 1800s. But ultimately, innovation comes about by people and companies spending a lot of money to try out new things. So I'd say we learn what we can from this, and be grateful that it's not our money.

Plus I can't deny that if they get that pinion working, it'd be awfully cool to see in action.

          Comment on Rain by LeeEzekiel      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
How can I put this... it's a novel that definitely shows its age. It's not Rain's fault that it came out so early. But the thing with a prototype/classic is that if you don't read it <em>first</em>, you'll inevitably be biased against it since it will have the "same old cliches", but not as well executed (since the whole point of copycat fantasy stories is doing the same thing but better, building on their predecessor's works). What was new and thrilling back then has become status quo or tired now. I found myself thinking that the story was a bit too predictable, a bit too thin, a bit too disappointing - because I kept comparing it to similar works that were likely inspired by Rain in the first place. If I had read this first, back when I was younger and inexperienced, then I would have probably loved it. TL;DR: An excellent introductory novel, not so good if you're reading it after a few dozen generic fantasies and Isekais.

          What if your coffee table was also a robot?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Life hacks aren’t just for the productivity-obsessed. They’re a necessary part of life for differently abled people navigating a world that was not designed for everyone.

Lebanese industrial designer Nour Malaeb‘s best friend has muscular dystrophy, and when the two lived together, Malaeb watched him struggle through everyday tasks like getting up from the couch or carrying coffee from the kitchen. To accomplish these things on his own, his friend would do things like fill a mug up only halfway so it wouldn’t spill–a simple trick that helped him move around a space that wasn’t designed for him.

These are the kind of daily adjustments that people with physical disabilities must make, when so much of our world doesn’t accommodate people of all types of abilities. So when Malaeb was working on his master’s thesis project at the School of Visual Design in New York City, he began to wonder: What if he could design furniture that would do the work for his friend? If he couldn’t reach his coffee, could the table simply bring it to him?

Inspired by research coming out of MIT that focused on robotic furniture, Malaeb began designing a voice-controlled furniture robot that could move around a living space autonomously. The resulting prototype, called Relay, not only responds to your voice, it also can change its height, moving up and down based on what the user needs. Part table and part ottoman, it’s a multi-purpose piece of furniture that could be customized by each user.

Malaeb’s ultimate vision for Relay goes much further, though. During the design process, he spoke with people at the Brooklyn Center for Independence of the Disabled to get input from potential users on what they’d like to see in their furniture. One woman wanted a smart walker that could also double as a side table. Another, who’s a wheelchair user and lives alone, is afraid of falling and not being able to get back up–she told Malaeb she wants a “picker-upper.” Eventually, Malaeb hopes to be able to build custom pieces of robotic furniture to users’ specifications.

Malaeb envisions a piece of furniture that could even help someone get up off the couch or get back into a wheelchair after falling, even if his prototype isn’t that advanced yet.

For now, the prototype is a very rough vision of what Relay could be. After hearing about how expensive service dogs are–one current solution to helping disabled people get around–Malaeb hopes to create furniture that is FDA-approved, which would allow people to use insurance money to buy it. He imagines finding a way to add mechanical parts to existing affordable furniture, too, so that any old Ikea table could become robotic.

Perhaps one day, all of us will have furniture that adapts to what we need at that moment, whether that means a rolling work desk or a coffee table that springs to life when you call.


          Catholic Inertia      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   



Back to our regular programming.

Warning: for those of an atheist bent this is a religious post.

It's this blog's primary contention that the civilisational failure of the West has primarily come about because of the collapse of the Christian religion. While it is true that there were other factors in the formation of Western Civilisation, Christianity provided the unifying foundational principles of it. Pagan and other traditions were incorporated insofar as they were in conformity with the overarching Christian principles.  By the end of the 19th Century, Western Civilisation was the dominant power of the planet. However by the end of the 19th Century the warning signs were becoming apparent and  the smart guys saw that Christianity was beginning to fail, and they were under no illusions that the decline of Christianity would require a new "value system" to replace it. Marxism, Fascism, and Liberalism were attempts to replace what was lost. We're still groping for meaning despite the rivers of blood.

It is my opinion that there will be no restoration with some kind of  Christian restoration.  However, any restoration of a Christian West is going to have to avoid the mistakes of the past and therefore it's necessary to have a good hard look at where things went wrong. 

As I see it, the two major branches of Western Christianity, Catholicism and Protestantism failed by different modes. Protestantism failed because it denied objectivity and legitimised  the subjectivity of the individual.  Neoreaction has dealt with this subject at length.

Catholicism's mode of failure is different:  Unlike Protestantism, Catholicism affirmed the objective nature of morality--as affirmed by the Magisterium--but was unable to deal with the problems because of the institutional inertia of the Church. And it's this inertia that has allowed Modernist movements to run rings around it when changes have occurred in the cultural environment and inhibited any dynamic response. As it stands, the Catholic Church is basically a defensive organisation and is incapable of cultural offense.

The Benedict option, for example,  is a typical of this mindset. In my opinion Benedict XVI has one of the sharpest minds out there, but even with all of his erudition and spirituality the best response he could give to the problem of Modernity is to curl up in a ball and to ride it out: He had no plan to take the bastards on.

Even Catholic Integralism, with all of its intransigent militancy was in effect a militant a neo-Luddite movement which, unable to beat the modern state,  aimed to co-opt it to secure it's aims.   The paradox of Integralism is that the apparatus of modernity and it's underlying philosophy, i.e. the modern state and its control over the interior life of the individual,  is the vehicle by which modernity is to be fought. The approach is contradictory and paradoxically furthers the transmission of modernity. It's an own goal! A weak religion does not become strong by co-opting a strong state, it simply rides the tiger of the State. It's also why the State, when it throw the rider off, rapidly reverts to modernist form. Cue Spain and Portugal.

As I see it, the institutional inertia of Catholicism is a product of both in its structure and it's mindset.

The Church understands itself of formally being composed of both the clergy and the laity but in reality the Church operates on a notion of a directing clergy and a passive laity. As some wag said, the priests do the thinking but the laity is simply meant to pray, pay and obey. Passivity is the feature of the laity, or as Pius X famously stated:
It follows that the Church is essentially an unequal society, that is, a society comprising two categories of per sons, the Pastors and the flock, those who occupy a rank in the different degrees of the hierarchy and the multitude of the faithful. So distinct are these categories that with the pastoral body only rests the necessary right and authority for promoting the end of the society and directing all its members towards that end; the one duty of the multitude is to allow themselves to be led, and, like a docile flock, to follow the Pastors
In many ways this "structure" is like that of the old Soviet army, individual action is only permitted from higher up and initiative is frowned upon. Maurice Blondel recognised this problem and called it monophorism.  Apart from killing all spontaneity in the faithful, the problem with this approach is that any new challenge has it's locus of response in the clergy. But what the historical record and the recent sexual abuse saga have demonstrated is that even with something as offensive as child abuse the clergy was unable to respond appropriately. It had to be dragged kicking and screaming by a hostile media into instantiating an appropriate response. Unfortunately, as the historical record shows, this is a recurring theme in Catholicism across the centuries. The Council of Trent, for example,  may have been a resolute response to the rise of militant Protestantism but it was also a tacit admission that the Church needed to be reformed. The sobering thought here is that it took nearly the loss of half of Christendom to recognise this fact.

Why has  the clergy has found it so difficult to respond to crises effectively? There are obviously many factors but one to consider is the fact that the Church is the prototype for the modern multinational managerial organisation. The Church may be a spiritual body but its also a practical organisation which needs to be practically run.  It has an "organisational structure" which in many ways resembles a modern business. There is a strict hierarchical order of authority, much like in any modern large corporation, where the CEO calls the shots and everyone is expected to toe the line.  And the Church, just like the modern corporation has it's managerial class, and just like all multinational organisations suffers from bureaucratic inertia.  Understanding the Church's institutional response to the sexual abuse saga becomes a lot more easier to comprehend if you do from the framework of a bureaucratic imperative. Being obsessed with rules and regulations, preservation of position and prestige, procedure orientation instead of results orientated are key features of the bureaucratic mindset. A Pharisee is a simply a religious bureaucrat in whom the rules matter more than the effect that they are having.  His job is to maintain the rules even if they lead to totally absurd outcomes.  Just to make myself clear, the bureaucracy's obsession with avoiding scandal resulted in the total repudiation of the Christian teaching of Justice.

The other factor impacting upon the Church is how the Church understands Tradition, which has a direct influence on the organizational mindset. This is a huge topic but, briefly, in times of ossification Traditional is understood as an absolute expression of faith, whereas in times of renewal Tradition is understood as a contingent one. Rules are "strict" in conservative times and "liberal" in times of renewal.  Given the defensive position of the Church and its institutional nature,  the interpretation of Tradition has almost verged on the Spergy, with Tradition = literal Truth. The point here is that any innovation is almost automatically seen as heresy, therefore the even the ability to develop solutions even from within the framework of tradition is stymied by this mindset. Any novel doctrinal development is by definition anti-traditional and the object of pushback by the institution.

The combination of both bureaucratic and cultural inertia have resulted in the Church being unable to respond to the shifting cultural landscape bought about the impact of technology and population growth which was first really felt at the end of the 19th Century. It much like a saddler bemoaning that people don't ride horses anymore and insisting that they should continue to do so.

No one takes any notice, except the romantics who like riding horses.

Vatican Two was meant to be an attempt to break this mindset but it was poorly thought out and poorly implemented: the result being a mess. Yves Congar and Herni de Lubac may be have been great diagnosticians but I'm not sure they had the right therapy. Old fogey bureaucrats, attempting to look cool and relevant can never pull it off and the who thing looks silly and awkward. That's explains a lot of the silliness in the Catholic Church following Vatican Two. Still, there is a silver lining to the "faults" of Catholicism, the bureaucratic inertia meant the Church was resistant to the pozzification of it in a way that Protestantism wasn't. But it's no advantage in being right when no one is noticing and  sliding back into the same ineffective Traditionalism of the past just simply takes you back to square one.. A new way will have to be found to go forward but I'm not sure how that is going to play out.
