          Sanders: We Have "Right-Wing Extremists" In Charge Of White House, Senate, House, Supreme Court       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) says that he has very serious concerns about justice in the US if Trump chooses a Supreme Court justice nominee from his list of 25 conservative candidates. ERIN BURNETT: Up front now, independent senator, Bernie Sanders. Senator Sanders, I appreciate your time. Look, we understand the president made is choice, and when you talk about just the logistics of getting someone there and forming them, making it at 3 o'clock Eastern is pretty darn late for a 9:00 PM announcement, but that's what we understand. Senator, is there anyone this president could realistically pick that would be acceptable to you? SEN. BERNIE SANDERS: Oh, there are many people he could realistically pick, people who respected the rights of works, people who respected women's rights, people who are concerned about the environment and climate change, people who believed in justice. If President Trump were to nominate somebody who held those beliefs, of course I could support that person. Do I realistically think that that is going to be the nominee? No I don't. As you know, Trump has indicated that he's working off a list of 25 right-wing legal people, and that, during the campaign he said pretty publically that his nominee would be somebody to overturn Roe v. Wade. BURNETT: Yes, he did. SANDERS: If that is one of his nominees, no, I certainly will not support him or her. BURNETT: All right, so, out of the list of 25 that you're not amenable to one of the judges that we understand – I don't know if you just heard or Jeff Zeleny, but he's saying it could obviously be anyone on that list of 25, but we do believe at this point he had whittled it down possibly to Judge Thomas Hardiman and Judge Brett Kavanaugh. I want to ask you Thomas Hardiman. Obviously, he's in – on the Third Circuit Court of Appeals right now, and part of the reason he's there is because of you. You voted to confirm him as a Circuit Court judge, so – SANDERS: Well, wait a minute. Let's – who else voted for him on that one? In fact, everybody voted for him, right? BURNETT: Well Democrats did. My point is, you're saying you're now putting him a conservative you couldn't support, but obviously a decade ago you didn't feel the same way? SANDERS: Well, there's – yes, but there is a difference between voting for somebody in a lower-court and somebody floating – voting for somebody in the highest court of the land. There's fundamental difference, and if he – BURNETT: Which is what? I mean, principles would matter in either case, right? SANDERS: Well, the principle is that the Supreme Court makes the law of the land and determines what happens in our country, in virtually every area. So, yes, there is a fundamental difference. Look, what we are talking about here is in a moment in American history where we have right-wing extremists controlling the House, the Senate and the White House. If we appoint another right-wing extremist to the Supreme Court I have very serious concerns about justice in this country and what will happen to the – BURNETT: So – SANDERS: – men, women and children and the future of our nation. So we will – BURNETT: But just to understand (ph), would Thomas Hardiman be a right-wing extremist now, as you define it? SANDERS: Yes. So if he is on a list of the 25 that were presented to the president, yes, he would be somebody that I would feel impossible to support. BURNETT: Your colleague, the Democratic senator, Bob Casey from Pennsylvania, he said he'd oppose anybody on the list, which I – I – I believe is similar to what you're saying to me now, right? SANDERS: Yes, yes, yes. BURNETT: OK. The White House deputy press secretary, Rod Shaw, responded, and his response was, "Unfortunately, though not surprising that even before his or her qualifications can be evaluated, Senator Casey is refusing to even consider the president's nominee." Doesn't he have a point? I mean – SANDERS: Not really. It depends. I think what Bob said is that if it were part of the list of 25, and that list of 25 is not just an arbitrary list, these are people who have been assembled by right-winged jurists, and they have views on role versus wage. They have views on workers rights. BURNETT: Yes. SANDERS: They have views on the environment, which in many cases are well done, so this is not just any old person. I – I would not say that, you know, any person should be summarily rejected, but if they're a member of that list they shouldn't (ph). Look – BURNETT: Do – do you regret – do you regret, then, voting for Thomas Hardiman on that lower-court because I know you're saying it's different, but the reality is he wouldn't be up for this if he hadn't gotten that (ph), so? SANDERS: Look, I voted for – when you vote for lower-court judges sometimes they get blue slips, and there's a process that goes by. When you – I think that vote was 95 to nothing, was that correct? BURNETT: Yes. SANDERS: 95 to nothing, and there are a number of votes like that, but let's be clear, voting for a Supreme Court justice is very different than voting for anybody in a lower-court. Look, what we're talking about is a right-wing agenda of which, not only wants to end role versus wage (ph) despite the fact that 70 percent of the American people support the maintenance of role versus wage (ph), not only wants to overturn decisions regarding gay marriage and gay rights despite strong support from the American people. The right-wing agenda goes so far is – is to really side, time and time again, with large corporations who are attacking workers rights, even the concept of the minimum wage, which now is now a starvation wage of $7.25 an hour. There are people, right-wing people, saying, "Oh, no, that's unconstitutional." We're talking about healthcare. We're talking about issues of women's health, in general. BURNETT: Senator? SANDERS: Yes? BURNETT: I want to ask you before – before we go, but while I have your time, about the deadline tomorrow, which you know, of course, is the government's deadline to reunite children under-5 who were separated at the border from their parents. Half of the children are going to be reunited by that deadline. The Trump Administration isn't sure about the rest. Now the federal judge, though, who set this deadline for reunification said he's quote, "Very encouraged, thus far." Again, I've said half of those children will be reunited by the deadline, half will not. Are you encouraged? SANDERS: Am I encouraged by a president who ripped children out of the arms of their mother and a situation in which the authorities did not even know where these kids were, am I encouraged, no. I am outraged by what Trump and his administration have done. Obviously, I would hope and expect that every person in this country, every person in the world, believes and expect these children should be united with their parents. We will see what happens, but I have – if you want to know what I've been impressed by it's by the incompetence of the Trump Administration to even (ph) the simplest things in this area. BURNETT: ICE has become a lighting-rod in this, and the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell was followed out a restaurant this weekend. Protesters yelling personal insults at him, chanting abolish ICE and vote him out. I wanted to play a clip for you, Senator Sanders. BURNETT: Senator, among the protesters were members of the local chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America. Do you think their behavior was acceptable? SANDERS: I – look, people getting back to this very issue of immigration. There are people all over this country who are outraged that little kids have been separated from their parents, which, no doubt, will cause, I guess, permanent psychological damage when you separate a kid from his or her parents. So people are outraged, and I understand, but I happen to believe that if we want to deal with real immigration reform, if we want to deal with real criminal justice reform, if we want to deal the environment, the area that we should be focusing or energy on is ending republican control over the House and over the Senate. And I am going to do everything I can, and millions of people are going to do everything they can, putting together a grass-roots which demands that we have a government that represents all of us and not just wealthy campaign contributors. So I think our focus of energy should be on bringing change to the House and the Senate and supporting a progressive agenda.

          Carlos Andreazza: No ritmo de Lula      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
- O Globo

Já passou o tempo de estar perplexo, o que justificaria a cegueira até aqui. É hora de compreender o que está em curso — aliás, há meses. Há três, especificamente, Lula — preso — lidera todas as pesquisas de intenção de voto a presidente. Trata-se de posição sólida, estável. Um lugar construído, com método, desde a condenação em primeira instância — a rigor, desde a própria existência do inquérito, com destaque para o espetáculo político em que se converteria o primeiro depoimento do réu Lula ao juiz Moro, rito jurídico transtornado em duelo eleitoral, como se ali afinal debatessem dois adversários. Tudo calculado. Quantos outros circos dessa natureza não vimos serem armados no último ano? Como não se lembrar da rave em que consistiu sua prisão? Tudo medido.

Não importa que Lula não possa — e não poderá — concorrer formalmente em outubro. Ele concorrerá. Já é um concorrente. O concorrente. Tampouco importa quem seja seu ungido a candidato: porque Lula será. Esse é conceito decisivo ao entendimento do componente plebiscitário que sequestrou uma das faces da eleição: não interessa se Haddad, Wagner ou qualquer outro cavalo petista, porção representativa do eleitorado votará sobre se Lula é ou não perseguido. Para esse buraco nos levou o ex-presidente. Ele é o senhor do jogo, mestre do tabuleiro eleitoral. Negar isso é subestimar os recursos de alguém que conseguiu — ou vem conseguindo — manter-se no centro do debate público, mesmo preso, e empurrá-lo para o terreno da insegurança, da incerteza, o único em que um presidiário pode vender esperança.

Nunca tive dúvida de que não sairia da prisão no domingo. Tenho certeza de que só deixará a cadeia sob decisão de corte superior. Isso não diminui a relevância dos eventos de anteontem no Tribunal Federal da Quarta Região. A estratégia lulista — de politização do processo judicial e de judicialização do processo político-eleitoral — precisa de marcos simbólicos como o propiciado pelo desembargador Favreto. Há vários exemplos. Falo de narrativa; de discurso. Não se pode analisar os movimentos da defesa de Lula à luz do Direito. Seria o mesmo que observar um carcará buscando nele um beija-flor. A tática é tão óbvia quanto eficaz: cultivar — a partir dos instrumentos jurídicos — a percepção de que o ex-presidente é vítima do sistema. Funciona.

Lula comunica hoje, exclusivamente, para algo como um terço do eleitorado. Não é volume capaz de tornar alguém presidente. Ele sabe disso. Sabe igualmente, porém, que existe vitória na derrota, e que muitos jogos são jogados à margem do principal. Ou não lhe seria triunfo extraordinário, consideradas suas circunstâncias, preso e virtualmente inelegível, ainda assim alçar o candidato que o encarnará a uma vaga no segundo turno? Há mais. Porque, paralelamente, em disputa também está a hegemonia sobre a esquerda brasileira — sobre a esquerda latino-americana, portanto. Essa, a da própria sobrevivência, talvez a peleja mais importante para o PT em 2018. Se Lula conseguir mesmo transferir, conforme indicam as pesquisas, algo como dois terços dos votos declinados para si, não apenas terá encaixado seu ungido na rodada final como assegurado a seu partido a liderança da esquerda no continente. É a conquista possível — e a que ele almeja.

A estratégia lulista é urdida e executada à perfeição porque, na origem, compreende as próprias limitações. Lula conhece o mapa eleitoral brasileiro. Ele o desenhou, sobretudo a partir de 2006. Sabe que, impulsionada pelo mais poderoso programa de transferência de votos já concebido, o Bolsa Família, a esquerda, graças ao voto do Nordeste, estará no segundo turno — e que são grandes as chances de que esteja com seu candidato. Não precisa de mais para se sustentar como o que é. Aqui cabe lembrar 1989, uma das poucas ocasiões em que aquela eleição servirá de baliza para 2018. Brizola era, então, a cara da esquerda no Brasil. Ao conseguir desbancá-lo, tomando para si o lugar de adversário de Collor no segundo turno, Lula capturou para si e para o PT a hegemonia esquerdista no país, espaço de que não pode abrir mão. Apoiar Ciro Gomes seria, pois, oferecer a própria cabeça à extinção.

A estratégia lulista investe na desordem porque tem base na percepção da natureza disfuncional do panorama eleitoral brasileiro. A leitura do cenário por Lula identificou a hipótese que tem dado sustentação a sua tática: se 30% dos eleitores indicam que votariam nele, um indivíduo condenado e preso, é porque 30% dos eleitores não acreditam no sistema judicial brasileiro. É com essa ferramenta que o ex-presidente opera.

Com 20% dos votos, talvez mesmo com 17%, 18%, é muito provável que um candidato avance ao segundo turno. Alguém duvida de que o representante lulista terá musculatura para tanto? Que não nos enganemos: os eventos de domingo no TRF-4 tiveram menos a ver com a liberdade de Lula do que com subsídios narrativos às pretensões eleitorais do ex-presidente. Outros virão.

REPORTABLE
IN THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
CRIMINAL APPELLATE JURICTION
REVIEW PETITION (CRL.) NOS.671­673 OF 2017
IN
CRIMINAL APPEAL NOS.608 & 609­610 OF 2017


VINAY SHARMA & ANR. ... PETITIONERS
VERSUS
STATE OF NCT OF DELHI & ORS. ... RESPONDENTS

J U D G M E N T

ASHOK BHUSHAN, J.

These   review   petitions   have   been   filed   by   two
applicants   Vinay   Sharma­accused   No.1   and   Pawan   Kumar
Gupta­accused No.2 to review the judgment of this Court
dated   05.05.2017   by   which   judgment   this   Court   had
dismissed the criminal appeals filed by the petitioners
challenging   the   order   of   the   High   Court   confirming   the
death reference and dismissing the criminal appeals filed
2
by   the   petitioners   against   the   order   of   conviction   and
award of death sentence. 
2. Both the petitioners were tried for rape and murder
of   a   23   years'   age   lady   ­Nirbhaya   (changed   name).   The
trial   court   convicted   the   petitioners   along   with   three
others   and   awarded   death   sentence   to   all   the   four
accused.   Death   reference   No.6   of   2013   Was   sent   by   the
trial court to the High Court. Separate criminal appeals
were   also   filed   by   the   petitioners   challenging   the
judgment  of the trial  court.  Delhi  High Court  vide  its
judgment dated 13.03.2014 confirmed the death penalty to
all   the   four   convicts   including   petitioners,   Vinay
Sharma,   appellant   No.1   in   Criminal   Appeal   No.   609   of
2017,   Pawan   Kumar   Gupta,   appellant   No.1   in   Criminal
Appeal Nos.608 of 2017. The appeals were dismissed by the
judgment of this Court dated 05.05.2017. The petitioners
aggrieved by the said judgment dated 05.05.2017 by which
all   the   appeals   were   dismissed   have   filed   these   review
petitions   praying   for   reviewing   the   judgment   dated
05.05.2017.

3. We have heard the learned counsel, Shri A.P. Singh
appearing for the petitioners and Shri Sidharth Luthra,
learned senior counsel for the State. 
4. Shri A.P. Singh learned counsel for the peititoners
in   support   of   the   review   petitions   has   urged   several
grounds. Shri Singh submits that death penalty in India
needs to be abolished. He submits that there are several
reasons   for   opposing   death   penalty   which   broadly
speaking,   they   fall   under   two   categories,   moral   and
practical. This also goes against the principle of nonviolence
  that   India   has   advocated   for   decades.   In   the
year 1966, the Bill introducing death penalty abolition
was   passed   by   the   House   of   Parliament   in   England.   He
further   submitted   that   in   a   large   number   of   countries
death   penalty   has   been   abolished.   In   his   submission   he
has   referred   the   names   of   several   Latin   American
countries and  several  Australian States. 
5. Apart from above, several other contentions have been
advanced by Shri A.P. Singh which we proceed to note in
seriatim. Shri Singh submits that investigation and trial
4
has been carried out with the sole purpose of survival of
the prosecuting agency. The investigation is engaged in
maladroit effort to book the vulnerable and the innocent
so as to disguise and cover there inefficiency to catch
the   real   culprits.   The   political   class   is   using
investigating   agencies   as   tools   for   partisan   political
objective. 
6. PW.1,   during   his   cross­examination   was   confronted
with   his   statement   Ex.PW­1/A   qua   the   factum   of   not
disclosing the use of iron rod, the description of Bus,
the name of assailants either in MLC Ex.PW­51/A or in his
complaint   Ex.PW­1/A.   The   Bus,   Ex.P­1   has   been   falsely
implicated   in   the   present   case.   CCTV   footage   was   not
properly examined to check all possible Buses plying on
the   said   route.     The   Bus   was   taken   to   Tyagraj   Stadium
instead of the Police Station to avoid the media and to
facilitate the planting of evidence. 
7. That the three dying declarations have been contrived
and   deserved   to   be   kept   out   of   consideration   and   the
dying   declarations   do   not   inspire   confidence   for
5
variations in them relating to the number of assailants,
the description of Bus, the identity of accused etc. If
at all any dying declaration is to be relied on, it is
first dying declaration made on 16.12.2012 and recorded
by PW­49, Dr. Rashmi Ahuja, which dying declaration only
states that there were 4 to 5 persons in the Bus. 
8. In   the   statement   recorded   in   MLC   Ex.PW­49/A
prosecutrix   has   neither   named   any   of   the   accused   nor
mentioned   the   factum   of   iron   rod   being   used   by   the
accused   persons.   The   prosecutrix   could   not   have   given
such a lengthy dying declaration on 21.12.2012 when she
was   continuously   on   morphine.   Third   dying   declaration
recorded   by   the   Metropolitan   Magistrate,   PW­30,   on
25.12.2012, through gesture and writings is controverted
by allegations of false medical fitness certificate and
absence   of   videography.     The   use   of   iron   rod   was   not
mentioned   by   PW­1   in   his   statement.   Had   the   iron   rod
been   really   inserted   through   the   vagina,   it   would   have
first   destroyed   the   uterus   before   the   intestines   were
pulled   out.   There   were   no   rod   related   injuries   in   her
6
uterus   and   medical   science   too   does   not   assist   the
prosecution in their claim. 
9. The DNA test can not be treated as accurate, since
there was blood transfusion as the prosecutrix required
blood   and   when   there   is   mixing   of   blood,   the
DNA profile is likely to differ.  
10. The   High   Court   has   failed   to   appreciate   that
petitioner No.1, Vinay Sharma on the date of incident and
time was in a musical programme arranged by S.C.C. unit
of Church in his locality and he was there from 8.15 p.m.
to 11/12 p.m. on 16.12.2012. The presence of petitioner
No.1   in   musical   show   has   been   witnessed   by   defence
witnesses who had deposed before the Court. Ram Babu,DW10
had also videographed the show from the mobile phone
of   petitioner   No.1   which   was   produced   before   the   trial
court. 
11. The   application   for   ossification   test   submitted   by
petitioner   No.1   was   wrongly   turned   down   by   the   trial
court. The petitioner was actually born on 01.03.1995 but
his   date   of   birth   given   by   his   father   was   01.03.1994
7
which was only for the purpose of getting him admitted in
the MCD School. The petitioner was only 17 years 8 months
and 15 days old at the time of incident. 
12. The   real   date   of   birth   of   petitioner   No.2   is
08.10.1996 and he was also minor on the date of incident.
The   petitioners   were   not   habitual   offenders.   Number   of
dacoits have surrendered for the last several decades and
have reformed themselves. 
13. Shri   Sidharth   Luthra,   learned   senior   counsel
appearing for the State refuting the submissions of the
petitioners submitted that the petitioners already in a
long hearing of the appeals before this Court have made
all   possible   submissions   which   have   been   considered   by
this Court while deciding the appeals on 05.05.2017, the
review   petition   is   nothing   but   an   effort   by   the
petitioners   to   re­argue   the   appeals   on   merits   which   is
not permissible under the law. No grounds have been made
out to consider the review petitions. In so far as the
submission   of   the   learned   counsel   for   the   petitioners
that the death penalty be abolished in India, Shri Luthra
8
submits that the said submission need not to be gone into
in   these   review   petitions.   It   is   submitted   that   death
penalty   has   already   been   upheld   by   this   Court   by   the
Constitution   Bench   of   this   Court   in  Bachan   Singh   vs.
State of Punjab, (1980) 2 SCC 684. He submits that death
penalty being still in the statute book it is not open
for the petitioners to  argue  that  the  death penalty be
abolished   in   this   country.   The   abolition   of   the   death
penalty   is   a   legislative   function   and   unless   the
Parliament   passes   an   amending   Act   it   is   not   for   the
Courts to consider the said submission. 
14. With   regard   to   the   submissions   of   the   petitioners
that   investigation   was   faulty   and   prosecuting   agencies
had   roped   in   the   petitioners,   it   is   submitted   that
prosecution   was   scientifically   carried   out   in   efficient
manner which has also been noted by this Court and any
person against the prosecution are unjustified and have
to be ignored. 
15. The evidence of PW­1 and all infirmities which are
sought to be pointed out in these review petitions have
9
already   been   considered   and   gone   into   by   this   Court.
Learned counsel has referred  to in  paragraphs  65  to 97
and   425   to   434   of   the   judgment   where   this   Court   has
thoroughly considered all submissions regarding evidence
of PW­1 and this Court has rejected the inconsistencies,
shortcomings   and   omissions   as   being   pointed   by   the
petitioners. Coming to the submission that the Bus, P­1
has   been     falsely   implicated,   Shri   Luthra   submits   that
apart   from   CCTV   footage   where   Bus   was   noticed   twice
passing   in   front   of   the   hotel,   there   were   other
evidences, namely finger prints, wound stains and other
objects obtained from the Bus which proved that the Bus
was involved in the incident. Shri Luthra has referred to
paragraphs 104 and 105 where this argument has been noted
and rejected by this Court.
16. On the submissions raised by the learned counsel for
the petitioners regarding dying declarations, Shri Luthra
submits   that   all   arguments   pertaining   to   dying
declarations have  been considered and dealt with by this
Court   in   paragraphs   148   to   192   of   the   judgment   dated
10
05.05.2017 and petitioners cannot be allowed to reagitate
the same which have already been considered and rejected
by   this   Court.   With   regard   to   first   dying   declaration
which was the case history recorded by Dr. Rashmi Ahuja,
this   Court   has   considered   all   aspects   and   had   already
held that there was no infirmity in noticing the facts as
could be disclosed by the prosecutrix at that time when
she   had   undergone   traumatic   experience   immediately
before. 
17. The non­mention of use of iron rod in the MLC or PW1's
statement has also been considered by this Court and
this Court had held and found use of iron rod from the
evidence. The statement of PW­1 pertaining to use of iron
rod   to   injure   the   prosecutrix   has   also   been   considered
and   noticed   by   this   Court.   The   DNA   reports   have   been
examined   in   detail   by   this   Court   including   blood
transfusion which has also been considered in paragraphs
233­234. With regard to alibi of Vinay Sharma that he, at
the relevant time, was in a musical programme, this Court
in   its   judgment   dated   05.05.2017   has   considered   and
11
rejected the plea of alibi after consideration of Defence
evidence.   The   same   argument   cannot   be   allowed   to   be
raised in the review petition.  In so far as the argument
that petitioner No.1, Vinay  Sharma was a juvenile at the
time   of   the   commission   of   the   offence,   Shri   Luthra
mentioned   order   of   the   trial   court   dated   10.01.2013
which mentioned that age verification report of Vinay and
Pawan have been received and they do not dispute the age
verification report filed by the IO. The prosecuiton has
placed   the   certified   copy   of   the   admission   register   of
the first attended school along with the certified copy
of the admission form of the first class of accused­Vinay
Sharma   and   trial   court   after   considering   all   evidences
had held that Vinay Sharma was more than 18 years of age
at the time of commission of offence. On the claim that
Pawan was a juvenile, Shri Luthra referred to the order
dated 10.01.2013 where age verification report of Pawan
has   been   received   and   also   certified   copies   had   been
filed on record. The report had referred to the written
statement of the parents of both these accused where they
have   confirmed   the   age   of   their   wards.     There   was   no
12
infirmity   in   the   trial   court   taking   decision   that   both
were   major   and   the   trial   court   proceeded   accordingly.
There   is   no   substance   in   the   submission   raised   by   the
learned counsel for the petitioners. 
18. We have considered the submissions of the parties and
perused the records.
19. Before we enter into the submissions raised in these
review petitions, it is useful to recapitulate the scope
and   grounds   available   for   exercise   of   jurisdiction   by
this Court under Article 137. Order XLVII Rule 1 of the
Supreme   Court   Rules,   2013   dealing   with   review   is   as
follows: 
“i.   The   Court   may   review   its   judgment   or
order,   but   no   application   for   review   will   be
entertained   in   a   civil   proceeding   except   on
the ground mentioned in Order XLVII, rule 1 of
the Code, and in a criminal proceeding except
on the ground of an error apparent on the face
of the record.”
20. An   application   to   review   a   judgment   is   not   to   be
lightly   entertained   and   this   Court   could   exercise   its
review jurisdiction only when those grounds are made out
13
as provided in Order XLVII Rule 1 of the Supreme Court
Rules, 2013 framed under Article 145 of the Constitution
of India.  This Court in Sow Chandra Kante and another v.
Sheikh Habib, (1975) 1 SCC 674  speaking through Justice
V.R. Krishna Iyer on review has stated the following in
para 10:
“10. A review of a judgment is a serious step
and   reluctant   resort   to   it   is   proper   only
where a glaring omission or patent mistake or
like   grave   error   has   crept   in   earlier   by
judicial   fallibility.   A   mere   repetition,
through   different   counsel,   of   old   and
overruled   arguments,   a   second   trip   over
ineffectually covered ground or minor mistakes
of   inconsequential   import   are   obviously
insufficient.”
21. As   per   rule,   review   in   a   criminal   proceeding   is
permissible only on the ground of error apparent on the
face of the record. This Court in  P.N. Eswara Iyer and
others v. Registrar, Supreme Court of India, (1980) 4
SCC 680  while examining the review jurisdiction of this
Court  vis a vis  criminal and civil proceedings had made
the following observations in paras 34 and 35:  
“34.   The   rule,   on   its   face,   affords   a   wider
set of grounds for review for orders in  civil
proceedings,   but   limits   the   ground   vis­a­vis
14
criminal   proceedings  to   “errors   apparent  on
the   face  of   the   record”.   If   at   all,   the
concern   of   the   law   to   avoid   judicial   error
should   be   heightened   when   life   or   liberty   is
in peril since civil penalties are often less
traumatic. So, it is reasonable to assume that
the   framers   of   the   rules   could   not   have
intended   a   restrictive   review   over   criminal
orders   or   judgments.   It   is   likely   to   be   the
other   way   about.   Supposing   an   accused   is
sentenced   to   death   by   the   Supreme   Court   and
the “deceased” shows up in court and the court
discovers the tragic treachery of the recorded
testimony. Is the court helpless to review and
set   aside   the   sentence   of   hanging?   We   think
not. The power to review is in Article 137 and
it   is   equally   wide   in   all   proceedings.   The
rule   merely   canalises   the   flow   from   the
reservoir   of   power.   The   stream   cannot   stifle
the   source.   Moreover,   the   dynamics   of
interpretation   depend   on   the   demand   of   the
context   and   the   lexical   limits   of   the   test.
Here   “record”   means   any   material   which   is
already on record or may, with the permission
of the court, be brought on record. If justice
summons  the  Judges   to   allow  a   vital  material
in,   it   becomes   part   of   the   record;   and   if
apparent   error   is   there,   correction   becomes
necessitous.
35.   The   purpose   is   plain,   the   language   is
elastic   and   interpretation   of   a   necessary
power   must   naturally   be   expansive.   The
substantive power is derived from Article 137
and   is   as   wide   for   criminal   as   for   civil
proceedings.   Even   the   difference   in
phraseology   in   the   rule   (Order   40   Rule   2)
must, therefore, be read to encompass the same
area   and   not   to   engraft   an   artificial
divergence   productive   of   anomaly.   If   the
expression   “record”   is   read   to   mean,   in   its
15
semantic   sweep,   any   material   even   later
brought   on   record,   with   the   leave   of   the
court, it will embrace subsequent events, new
light and other grounds which we find in Order
47   Rule   1,   CPC.   We   see   no   insuperable
difficulty   in   equating   the   area  in   civil   and
criminal   proceedings   when   review   power   is
invoked from the same source.”
22. The scope of review jurisdiction has been considered
by   this   Court   in   a   number   of   cases   where   well   settled
principles   have   been   reiterated   time   and   again.   It   is
sufficient to refer to judgment of this Court in Kamlesh
Verma   vs.   Mayawati   and   others   (2013)   8   SCC   320,   where
this   Court   has   elaborately   considered   the   scope   of
review. In paras 17, 18, 20.1 and 20.2 following has been
laid down:
“17.  In a review petition, it is not open to
the   Court   to   reappreciate   the   evidence   and
reach a different conclusion, even if that is
possible.   Conclusion   arrived   at   on
appreciation of evidence cannot be assailed in
a   review   petition   unless   it   is   shown   that
there is an error apparent on the face of the
record   or   for   some   reason   akin   thereto.  This
Court in  Kerala SEB  v.  Hitech Electrothermics
& Hydropower Ltd.  held as under: (SCC p. 656,
para 10)
“10. … In a review petition it is not open to
this Court to reappreciate the evidence and
16
reach a different conclusion, even if that is
possible. The learned counsel for the Board
at   best   sought   to   impress   us   that   the
correspondence exchanged between the parties
did   not   support   the   conclusion   reached   by
this Court. We are afraid such a submission
cannot   be   permitted   to   be   advanced   in   a
review petition. The appreciation of evidence
on record is fully within the domain of the
appellate   court.   If   on   appreciation   of   the
evidence   produced,   the   court   records   a
finding   of   fact   and   reaches   a   conclusion,
that   conclusion   cannot   be   assailed   in   a
review petition unless it is shown that there
is   an   error   apparent   on   the   face   of   the
record   or   for   some   reason   akin   thereto.   It
has not been contended before us that there
is   any   error   apparent   on   the   face   of   the
record.   To   permit   the   review   petitioner   to
argue   on   a   question   of   appreciation   of
evidence would amount to converting a review
petition into an appeal in disguise.”
18.  Review   is   not   rehearing   of   an   original
matter. The power of review cannot be confused
with appellate power which enables a superior
court   to   correct   all   errors   committed   by   a
subordinate   court.   A   repetition   of   old   and
overruled   argument   is   not   enough   to   reopen
concluded   adjudications.   This   Court   in  Jain
Studios   Ltd.  v.  Shin   Satellite   Public   Co.
Ltd.,   held   as   under:   (SCC   pp.   504­505,   paras
11­12)
“11. So far as the grievance of the applicant
on merits is concerned, the learned counsel
for the opponent is right in submitting that
virtually the applicant seeks the same relief
which had been sought at the time of arguing
the main matter and had been negatived. Once
17
such   a   prayer   had   been   refused,   no   review
petition   would   lie   which   would   convert
rehearing   of   the   original   matter.   It   is
settled law that the power of review cannot
be   confused   with   appellate   power   which
enables   a   superior   court   to   correct   all
errors committed by a subordinate court. It
is   not   rehearing   of   an   original   matter.   A
repetition of old and overruled argument is
not enough to reopen concluded adjudications.
The   power   of   review   can   be   exercised   with
extreme care, caution and circumspection and
only in exceptional cases.
12. When a prayer to appoint an arbitrator by
the   applicant   herein   had   been   made   at   the
time when the arbitration petition was heard
and was rejected, the same relief cannot be
sought   by   an   indirect   method   by   filing   a
review   petition.   Such   petition,   in   my
opinion, is in the nature of ‘second innings’
which   is   impermissible   and   unwarranted   and
cannot be granted.””
20.1. When the review will be maintainable:
(i) Discovery of new and important matter or
evidence   which,   after   the   exercise   of   due
diligence,   was   not   within   knowledge   of   the
petitioner or could not be produced by him;
(ii) Mistake or error apparent on the face of
the record;
(iii) Any other sufficient reason.
The   words   “any   other   sufficient   reason”   have
been   interpreted   in  Chhajju   Ram  v.  Neki  and
approved by this Court in  Moran Mar Basselios
Catholicos v. Most Rev. Mar Poulose Athanasius
to   mean   “a   reason   sufficient   on   grounds   at
18
least   analogous   to   those   specified   in   the
rule”.   The   same   principles   have   been
reiterated   in  Union   of   India  v.  Sandur
Manganese & Iron Ores Ltd.
20.2.  When   the   review   will   not   be
maintainable:
(i)   A   repetition   of   old   and   overruled
argument   is   not   enough   to   reopen   concluded
adjudications.
(ii)   Minor   mistakes   of   inconsequential
import.
(iii)   Review   proceedings   cannot   be   equated
with the original hearing of the case.
(iv)   Review   is   not   maintainable   unless   the
material error, manifest on the face of the
order, undermines its soundness or results in
miscarriage of justice.
(v)   A   review   is   by   no   means   an   appeal   in
disguise   whereby   an   erroneous   decision   is
reheard   and   corrected   but   lies   only   for
patent error.
(vi) The mere possibility of two views on the
subject cannot be a ground for review.
(vii) The error apparent on the face of the
record should not be an error which has to be
fished out and searched.
(viii) The appreciation of evidence on record
is fully within the domain of the appellate
court, it cannot be permitted to be advanced
in the review petition.
(ix) Review is not maintainable when the same
relief sought at the time of arguing the main
matter had been negatived.”
19
23. This very Bench speaking through one of us (Justice
Ashok   Bhushan)   had   occasion   to   consider   the   ambit   and
scope of the review Jurisdiction in a criminal proceeding
in  Vikram Singh alias Vicky Walia and another vs. State
of Punjab and another (2017) 8 SCC 518.   In para 23 of
the judgement following has been stated: 
“23.   In   view   of   the   above,   it   is   clear   that
scope,   ambit   and   parameters   of   review
jurisdiction   are   well   defined.   Normally   in   a
criminal   proceeding,   review   applications
cannot be entertained except on the ground of
error   apparent   on   the   face   of   the   record.
Further,   the   power   given   to  this   Court   under
Article   137   is   wider   and   in   an   appropriate
case   can   be  exercised   to   mitigate   a  manifest
injustice. By review application an applicant
cannot be allowed to reargue the appeal on the
grounds   which   were   urged   at   the   time   of   the
hearing   of   the   criminal   appeal.   Even   if   the
applicant succeeds in establishing that there
may be another view possible on the conviction
or   sentence   of   the   accused   that   is   not   a
sufficient ground for review. This Court shall
exercise its jurisdiction to review only when
a glaring omission or patent mistake has crept
in   the   earlier   decision   due   to   judicial
fallibility. There has to be an error apparent
on   the   face   of   the   record   leading   to
miscarriage of justice to exercise the review
jurisdiction under Article 137 read with Order
40   Rule   1.   There   has   to   be   a   material   error
manifest   on   the   face   of   the   record   with
results in the miscarriage of justice.”
20
24. We first take up the submission of Shri A.P. Singh
regarding the abolition of death penalty in this counrty.
The   Constitution   Bench   of   this   Court   in  Bachan   Singh

penalty   as   provided   under   Section   302   of   IPC.   After

REPORTABLE
IN SUPREME COURT OF INDIA
CRIMINAL APPELLATE JURISDICTION
REVIEW PETITION (CRL.) NO. 570 OF 2017
IN
CRIMINAL APPEAL NO. 607 OF 2017

MUKESH ....PETITIONER
VERSUS
STATE OF NCT OF DELHI ....RESPONDENT

J U D G M E N T

ASHOK BHUSHAN J.

The petitioner by this review petition filed
under Article 137 of the Constitution of India prays
to review the final judgment dated 05.05.2017 passed
by this Court by which Criminal Appeal No. 607 of
2017 has been dismissed. The horrific incident which
took place on 16.12.2012 in Delhi wherein a young
2
lady of twenty three years (Nirbhaya, a changed name)
was gang raped and brutally injured who subsequently
died, in which the petitioner was one of the accused.
The petitioner was convicted and awarded death
sentence by Additional Sessions Judge (Special Fast
Track Court) Saket Court Complex New Delhi. Delhi
High Court confirmed the death reference and
dismissed the criminal appeal filed by the petitioner
challenging his conviction and sentence.
2. Aggrieved against the judgment of the Delhi High
Court dated 13.03.2014, Criminal Appeal No. 607 of
2017 was filed by the petitioner which appeal was
dismissed by this Court on 05.05.2017. Now, this
application is filed to review the judgment dated
05.05.2017 dismissing the Criminal Appeal of the
petitioner.
3. Before we enter into the submissions raised in
this review petition, it is useful to recapitulate
the scope and grounds available for exercise of
jurisdiction by this Court under Article 137. Order
3
XLVII Rule 1 of the Supreme Court Rules, 2013 dealing
with review is as follows:
“i. The Court may review its judgment or
order, but no application for review will
be entertained in a civil proceeding except
on the ground mentioned in Order XLVII,
rule 1 of the Code, and in a criminal
proceeding except on the ground of an error
apparent on the face of the record.”
4. In various decisions, this Court has already
settled the law with regards to the maintainability
of review petition under Article 137 of the
Constitution of India read with Order XL Rule 1 of
Supreme Court Rules, 1966 in criminal appeals. Before
we consider the points raised by the accused, we may
usefully refer to some of the decisions.
5. The power of review of the Supreme Court as
envisaged under Article 137 of the Constitution is no
doubt wider than review jurisdiction conferred by
other statutes on the Court. Article 137 empowers the
Supreme Court to review any judgment pronounced or
made, subject, of course, to the provisions of any
4
law made by Parliament or any rule made under Article
145 of the Constitution.
6. An application to review a judgment is not to be
lightly entertained and this Court could exercise its
review jurisdiction only when grounds are made out as
provided in Order XLVII Rule 1 of the Supreme Court
Rules, 2013 framed under Article 145 of the
Constitution of India. This Court in Sow Chandra
Kante and another v. Sheikh Habib, (1975) 1 SCC 674
speaking through Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer on review
has stated the following in para 10:
“10. A review of a judgment is a serious
step and reluctant resort to it is proper
only where a glaring omission or patent
mistake or like grave error has crept in
earlier by judicial fallibility. A mere
repetition, through different counsel, of
old and overruled arguments, a second trip
over ineffectually covered ground or minor
mistakes of inconsequential import are
obviously insufficient.”
7. As per rule, review in a criminal proceeding is
permissible only on the ground of error apparent on
the face of the record. This Court in P.N. Eswara
Iyer and others v. Registrar, Supreme Court of
5
India, (1980) 4 SCC 680 while examining the review
jurisdiction of this Court vis a vis criminal and
civil proceedings had made the following observations
in paras 34 and 35:
“34. The rule, on its face, affords a wider
set of grounds for review for orders in
civil proceedings, but limits the ground
vis-a-vis criminal proceedings to “errors
apparent on the face of the record”. If at
all, the concern of the law to avoid
judicial error should be heightened when
life or liberty is in peril since civil
penalties are often less traumatic. So, it
is reasonable to assume that the framers of
the rules could not have intended a
restrictive review over criminal orders or
judgments. It is likely to be the other way
about. Supposing an accused is sentenced to
death by the Supreme Court and the
“deceased” shows up in court and the court
discovers the tragic treachery of the
recorded testimony. Is the court helpless
to review and set aside the sentence of
hanging? We think not. The power to review
is in Article 137 and it is equally wide in
all proceedings. The rule merely canalises
the flow from the reservoir of power. The
stream cannot stifle the source. Moreover,
the dynamics of interpretation depend on
the demand of the context and the lexical
limits of the test. Here “record” means any
material which is already on record or may,
with the permission of the court, be
brought on record. If justice summons the
Judges to allow a vital material in, it
becomes part of the record; and if apparent
error is there, correction becomes
necessitous.
6
35. The purpose is plain, the language is
elastic and interpretation of a necessary
power must naturally be expansive. The
substantive power is derived from Article
137 and is as wide for criminal as for
civil proceedings. Even the difference in
phraseology in the rule (Order 40 Rule 2)
must, therefore, be read to encompass the
same area and not to engraft an artificial
divergence productive of anomaly. If the
expression “record” is read to mean, in its
semantic sweep, any material even later
brought on record, with the leave of the
court, it will embrace subsequent events,
new light and other grounds which we find
in Order 47 Rule 1, CPC. We see no
insuperable difficulty in equating the area
in civil and criminal proceedings when
review power is invoked from the same
source.”
8. In Devender Pal Singh v. State, NCT of Delhi,
(2003) 2 SCC 501, it was held that review is not
rehearing of the appeal all over again. The review is
not an appeal in disguise. In Suthendraraja alias
Suthenthira Raja alias Santhan and Others vs. State
through Superintendent of Police, CBI, (1999) 9 SCC
323, it was held as under:-
“5. It would be seen that the scope of
review in criminal proceedings has been
considerably widened by the pronouncement
in the aforesaid judgment. In any case
review is not rehearing of the appeal all
over again and to maintain a review
petition it has to be shown that there has
been a miscarriage of justice. Of course,
7
the expression “miscarriage of justice” is
all-embracing…”
9. The scope of review jurisdiction has been
considered by this Court in a number of cases and the
well settled principles have been reiterated time and
again. It is sufficient to refer to judgment of this
Court in Kamlesh Verma vs. Mayawati and others (2013)
8 SCC 320, where this Court has elaborately
considered the scope of review. In paras 17, 18, 20.1
and 20.2 following has been laid down:
“17. In a review petition, it is not open
to the Court to reappreciate the evidence
and reach a different conclusion, even if
that is possible. Conclusion arrived at on
appreciation of evidence cannot be assailed
in a review petition unless it is shown
that there is an error apparent on the face
of the record or for some reason akin
thereto. This Court in Kerala SEB v. Hitech
Electrothermics & Hydropower Ltd. held as
under: (SCC p. 656, para 10)
“10. … In a review petition it is not open
to this Court to reappreciate the evidence
and reach a different conclusion, even if
that is possible. The learned counsel for
the Board at best sought to impress us
that the correspondence exchanged between
the parties did not support the conclusion
reached by this Court. We are afraid such
a submission cannot be permitted to be
advanced in a review petition. The
appreciation of evidence on record is
8
fully within the domain of the appellate
court. If on appreciation of the evidence
produced, the court records a finding of
fact and reaches a conclusion, that
conclusion cannot be assailed in a review
petition unless it is shown that there is
an error apparent on the face of the
record or for some reason akin thereto. It
has not been contended before us that
there is any error apparent on the face of
the record. To permit the review
petitioner to argue on a question of
appreciation of evidence would amount to
converting a review petition into an
appeal in disguise.”
18. Review is not rehearing of an original
matter. The power of review cannot be
confused with appellate power which enables
a superior court to correct all errors
committed by a subordinate court. A
repetition of old and overruled argument is
not enough to reopen concluded
adjudications. This Court in Jain Studios
Ltd. v. Shin Satellite Public Co. Ltd.,
held as under: (SCC pp. 504-505, paras 11-
12)
“11. So far as the grievance of the
applicant on merits is concerned, the
learned counsel for the opponent is right
in submitting that virtually the applicant
seeks the same relief which had been
sought at the time of arguing the main
matter and had been negatived. Once such a
prayer had been refused, no review
petition would lie which would convert
rehearing of the original matter. It is
settled law that the power of review
cannot be confused with appellate power
which enables a superior court to correct
all errors committed by a subordinate
court. It is not rehearing of an original
9
matter. A repetition of old and overruled
argument is not enough to reopen concluded
adjudications. The power of review can be
exercised with extreme care, caution and
circumspection and only in exceptional
cases.
12. When a prayer to appoint an arbitrator
by the applicant herein had been made at
the time when the arbitration petition was
heard and was rejected, the same relief
cannot be sought by an indirect method by
filing a review petition. Such petition,
in my opinion, is in the nature of ‘second
innings’ which is impermissible and
unwarranted and cannot be granted.””
20.1. When the review will be maintainable:
(i) Discovery of new and important matter
or evidence which, after the exercise of
due diligence, was not within knowledge of
the petitioner or could not be produced by
him;
(ii) Mistake or error apparent on the face
of the record;
(iii) Any other sufficient reason.
The words “any other sufficient reason”
have been interpreted in Chhajju Ram v.
Neki and approved by this Court in Moran
Mar Basselios Catholicos v. Most Rev. Mar
Poulose Athanasius to mean “a reason
sufficient on grounds at least analogous to
those specified in the rule”. The same
principles have been reiterated in Union of
India v. Sandur Manganese & Iron Ores Ltd.
20.2. When the review will not be
maintainable:
(i) A repetition of old and overruled
argument is not enough to reopen concluded
adjudications.
(ii) Minor mistakes of inconsequential
import.
10
(iii) Review proceedings cannot be equated
with the original hearing of the case.
(iv) Review is not maintainable unless the
material error, manifest on the face of
the order, undermines its soundness or
results in miscarriage of justice.
(v) A review is by no means an appeal in
disguise whereby an erroneous decision is
reheard and corrected but lies only for
patent error.
(vi) The mere possibility of two views on
the subject cannot be a ground for review.
(vii) The error apparent on the face of
the record should not be an error which
has to be fished out and searched.
(viii) The appreciation of evidence on
record is fully within the domain of the
appellate court, it cannot be permitted to
be advanced in the review petition.
(ix) Review is not maintainable when the
same relief sought at the time of arguing
the main matter had been negatived.”
10. This Very Bench speaking through one of us
(Justice Ashok Bhushan) had occasion to consider the
ambit and scope of the review petition in a criminal
proceeding in Vikram Singh alias Vicky Walia and
another vs. State of Punjab and another (2017) 8 SCC
518. In para 23 of the judgement following has been
stated:
“23. In view of the above, it is clear that
scope, ambit and parameters of review
jurisdiction are well defined. Normally in
a criminal proceeding, review applications
11
cannot be entertained except on the ground
of error apparent on the face of the
record. Further, the power given to this
Court under Article 137 is wider and in an
appropriate case can be exercised to
mitigate a manifest injustice. By review
application an applicant cannot be allowed
to reargue the appeal on the grounds which
were urged at the time of the hearing of
the criminal appeal. Even if the applicant
succeeds in establishing that there may be
another view possible on the conviction or
sentence of the accused that is not a
sufficient ground for review. This Court
shall exercise its jurisdiction to review
only when a glaring omission or patent
mistake has crept in the earlier decision
due to judicial fallibility. There has to
be an error apparent on the face of the
record leading to miscarriage of justice to
exercise the review jurisdiction under
Article 137 read with Order 40 Rule 1.
There has to be a material error manifest
on the face of the record with results in
the miscarriage of justice.”
11. Applying the parameters of the review
jurisdiction as noticed above, we now proceed to
examine the grounds given in the review petition to
find out as to whether there are any grounds for
exercising the review jurisdiction by this court to
review the judgment dated 05.05.2017.
12
12. We have heard Shri M.L.Sharma learned counsel
appearing for the petitioner and Shri Sidharth Luthra
learned senior counsel appearing for the respondent.
13. In support of the review petition, Shri Sharma
has raised various submissions which according to Mr.
Sharma furnish grounds to review the judgment to
protect the fundamental rights of the petitioner
guaranteed under Articles 21, 20(3), 22(1) and 22(2)
of the Constitution of India. We now proceed to
examine the submissions in seriatim.
14. Shri Sharma submits that police arrested Mukesh
from Karoli, the State of Rajasthan on 17.12.2012 in
the morning and he was shown to be arrested in the
evening of 18.12.2012 at Safdarjung Hospital in
Delhi. He submits that Mukesh was not produced before
the concerned Magistrate within twenty four hours of
his arrest at Karoli which is violative of rights
guaranteed under Articles 22(1) and 22(2).
13
15. Shri Sharma has further contended that police
has coerced the petitioner to give his vakalatnama in
favour of one V.K. Anand advocate, who was police
sponsored advocate. He submits that the petitioner
has given his vakalatnama in favour of Shri M.L.
Sharma advocate in January 2013 and April 2013 but
police imposed Advocate V.K. Anand as his advocate
and compelled to give his confession statement under
Section 313 Cr.P.C.
16. Shri M.L. Sharma further submitted that accused
Mukesh was tortured by police with regard to which he
also filed an affidavit in March 2013 before the
trial court and this affidavit was not considered by
this Court. It is submitted that statement under
Section 313 Cr. P.C. of the petitioner was got
recorded under torture of police.
17. One of the submissions of Shri Sharma was that
accused Mukesh did not know driving of a bus and had
driving licence which was only for LMV(Motorcycle).
14
18. It is further submitted by Shri Sharma that this
Court has not considered the remand application filed
by the IO Exh. PW.80/D2, which clearly proves that no
disclosure existed till 22.12.2012.
19. One of the submissions which has been raised by
Shri Sharma is that this Court had not adverted to
the call details as per which accused Mukesh could
not have been in the bus on 16.12.2012, since at that
time a call was received by him from Ram Singh at
8.55 p.m.
20. Shri Sharma has attacked the second dying
declaration recorded by the SDM, Usha Chaturvedi and
submitted that in the police diary there is no
mention of dying declaration recorded by the SDM,
Usha Chaturvedi.
21. Shri Sharma has again attacked the evidence of
PW.1 and tried to point out certain contradictions
and errors.
15
22. Learned counsel submitted that as application for
additional evidences under Section 391 Cr.P.C.
remained pending before the Appellate Court and no
orders were passed therein.
23. Shri Sidharth Luthra, learned senior counsel
replying the aforesaid submissions contends that
police on information received from one Ram Singh has
reached to Karoli district, Rajasthan and reached at
the house of Mukesh at 10.45 a.m. and apprehended the
petitioner who was brought to Delhi and first taken
to Vasant Vihar Police Station and after coming to
know that IO was at Safdarjung Hospital, accused was
taken to the said hospital where he was formally
arrested at 6.30 p.m. on 18.12.2012.
24. Shri Luthra, learned senior counsel for the
respondent has taken us to the proceedings of trial
court and the orders passed by trial court in support
of his submission that it was on the statement of
Mukesh accused before the Court where he expressed a
desire to discharge Shri M.L. Sharma the Court passed
16
an order on 24.01.2013 discharging Shri Sharma on the
request of accused and thereafter V.K. Anand was
permitted to be engaged by the petitioner.
25. Opposing the submission regarding coercion and
torture, Shri Sidharth Luthara submitted that Mukesh
was in judicial custody and from judicial custody he
used to go to Court to attend the trial. On several
occasions, the Court interacted with the accused and
in none of the occasion, accused at any point of time
complained of any torture by police or jail
authorities. Shri Luthra further submitted that Court
had directed for medical checkups of Mukesh and also
sought a report of Mukesh. The torture by police was
never alleged or proved by the accused.
26. Learned Counsel for the respondent submits that
the issue regarding not having driving licence for
Bus was not raised during the trial or during the
cross-examination of the witnesses, hence, at this
stage, it cannot be allowed to be raised. 
17
27. Shri Sidharth Luthra replying the submission
regarding remand application dated 22.12.2012
submitted that after the arrest of accused on
18.12.2012, the accused was produced before the
Magistrate on 19.12.2012 and after TIP was conducted
on 20.12.2012 he was remanded in the police custody
for three days on 22.12.2012, hence the remand
application was given on 22.12.2012.
28. Shri Luthra replying the submission based on
call details of Mukesh it is submitted that this
Court in its judgment dated 05.05.2017 has
elaborately considered all the evidences and held
that Mukesh was in the bus, which was boarded by the
prosecutrix and PW.1 at about 9.00 p.m. and it was
proved that Mukesh was driving the bus. We have
considered the submissions of both the parties and
have perused the records.
29. Coming to the submission of arrest at Karoli, the
High Court has dealt this submission in paras 288 to
294. The High Court has noticed in para 290 that
petitioner in his statement under Section 313 Cr.P.C.
18
in an answer of question No.132 claimed that he was
not apprehended at his village Karoli, Rajasthan but
was apprehended at Ravidass Camp in Delhi. High Court
noticing the judgment of the Privy Council in the
Prabhu v. Emperor, AIR 1944 PC 73 had observed that
conviction shall not be affected by any irregularity
in his arrest. Police have shown a formal arrest on
18.12.2012 and this Court vide its judgment dated
05.05.2017 has also noticed the fact that accused was
formally arrested at Safdarjung Hospital on
18.12.2012 at 6.30 p.m. at Safdarjung Hospital, in
the evening. This submission does not make out any
ground to hold that conviction and trial of the
accused is vitiated in any manner so as to call for
review of the judgment dated 05.05.2017. There is no
apparent error in the Judgment dated 05.05.2017.
30. Coming to the submission that Shri V.K. Anand,
Advocate was forced on petitioner it is sufficient to
note the order sheet of trial court which noticed all
facts. In proceeding dated 24.01.2013 the Trial Court
has recorded:
19
“... Lastly, I have called accused Mukesh
from JC, in my chamber and asked him about
his counsel. He replied that earlier he had
appointed Shri Manohar Lal Sharma, Advocate
vide vakalatnamas dated 08.01.2013 and
09.01.2013 but now would like to change his
counsel and has appointed Mr. V.K.Anand,
Advocate, as his counsel before this court
from today. Vakalatnama is filed. Shri
Manohar Lal Sharma, Advocate, is thus
discharged.
Accused Mukesh even informed that he do
not intend to avail the services of Shri N.
Rajaraman, Advocate-on-record, in the
Transfer Petition pending before the
Hon’ble Supreme Court of India and that he
had requested Shri V.K.Anand, Advocate, to
be his counsel, even in the Hon’ble Supreme
Court of India and to engage some other
Advocate-on-Record.
Again when the accused made his request to avail
the services of M.L. Sharma, said fact was recorded
on 20.03.2013 proceeding and Shri Sharma started
representing accused Mukesh. Subsequent order-sheet
also indicates that Shri Sharma did not appear on
several occasions, more than half a dozen of the
dates, which were fixed for cross-examination on
behalf of the accused then the Court was left with no
option but to appoint a amicus curiae. The submission
of Shri Sharma that Advocate V.K. Anand was forced on
20
the accused against his will is wholly untenable and
does not furnish any ground to review the judgment.
31. With regard to submission regarding torture by
police, it is sufficient to note that the trial court
interacted with the accused on many occasions and on
none of the occasions any complaint was made by
accused. The accused was in judicial custody. The
trial court in its proceeding dated 24.01.2013
recorded following:
“....I have also enquired from accused
Mukesh if he has any complaint with regard
to the manner in which he has been treated
in custody but he replied that he has no
complaint in this regard.”
The submission of Shri Sharma that statement of
accused recorded under Section 313 Cr.P.C. was under
pressure and influence of amicus curiae has no legs
to stand. The above argument is stated to be rejected
since the statement was recorded by the Court and the
accused was coming from judicial custody and could
not be tortured by the police as alleged. On the
affidavit filed in March 2013, the trial court had
21
promptly called for a report and matter was not
further pursued by the trial court since no material
came to substantiate the plea.
32. This Court in its judgment dated 05.05.2017 has
held after marshalling evidence of PW.1 and other
evidences including scientific evidences that Mukesh
was driving the bus. The issue whether he had a
driving licence for driving the bus or not has no
relevance with regard to conviction recorded against
the accused which has been affirmed by the High court
and this Court as well.
33. This Court in its judgment has referred to
recoveries made from the petitioner in para No. 127.
Remand application was given by police after
conclusion of T.I.P. Recoveries made from petitioner
has been discussed and believed, we cannot permit the
petitioner to argue the said issues again.
34. Learned counsel for accused No.2-Mukesh contended
that accused No.2-Mukesh does not know driving as
22
evidenced from his driving licence which shows that
the licence was only for Light Motor Vehicle (LMV)
and that he does not know how to drive a bus. Further
contention of accused No.2-Mukesh is that as per the
Call Details Record (CDR), he could not have been
present in the bus on 16.12.2012 at 08.55 p.m.
35. The argument that accused No.2-Mukesh does not
know driving has not been raised during the trial or
in evidence and also cross-examination of witnesses
by the accused. Upon consideration of the evidence of
PW-1 and other evidences including scientific
evidence, this Court has arrived at the conclusion
that accused no.2-Mukesh was driving the bus. Issue
whether accused No.2-Mukesh has a driving licence for
driving the bus or not has no relevance with regard
to conviction recorded against the accused which has
been affirmed by the High Court and this Court as
well.
36. There is no merit in the contention that accused
No.2-Mukesh could not have driven the bus and that he
23
was not present in the bus at the time of the
incident. It is to be noted that in the questioning
under Section 313 Crl.P.C., accused No.2-Mukesh has
clearly admitted that he was driving the bus and this
has been elaborately referred to in para (302) of the
Judgment as under:-
"302. In his questioning under Section 313
Cr.PC, Mukesh, A-2, has admitted that he
and A-1, Ram Singh (since deceased), are
brothers. He has also admitted that on the
night of 16-12-2012, he was driving the bus
and that accused Pawan and Vinay Sharma
were seated on the backside of the driver’s
seat, whereas Akshay and Ram Singh were
sitting in the driver’s cabin. The relevant
portion of his statement under Section 313
Cr.PC reads as under:
 “Q.2. It is in evidence against you
that PW 1 further deposed that they
inquired from 4-5 autorickshaw-walas to
take them to Dwarka, but they all
refused. At about 9 p.m. they reached at
Munirka Bus-stand and found a whitecoloured
bus on which “Yadav” was
written. A boy in the bus was calling
for commuters for Dwarka/Palam Mod. PW 1
noticed yellow and green lines/stripes
on the bus and that the entry gate of
the bus was ahead of its front tyre, as
in luxury buses and that the front tyre
was not having a wheel cover. What do
you have to say?
Ans.: I was driving the bus while my
brother Ram Singh, since deceased and
JCL, Raju was calling for passengers by
saying “Palam/Dwarka Mod”.
24
Q.4.: It is in evidence against you that
during the course of his deposition,
complainant, PW 1 has identified you
accused Mukesh to be the person who was
sitting on the driver’s seat and was
driving the bus; PW 1 further identified
your co-accused Ram Singh (since
deceased), and Akshay Kumar to be the
person who were sitting in the driver’s
cabin along with the driver; PW 1 had
also identified your co-accused Pawan
Kumar who was sitting in front of him in
two seats row of the bus; PW 1 had also
identified your co-accused Vinay Sharma
to be the person who was sitting in
three seats row just behind the driver’s
cabin, when PW 1 entered the bus; PW 1
has also deposed before the court that
the conductor who was calling him and
his friend/prosecutrix to board the bus,
Ext. P-1 was not among the accused
person being tried in this court.
Ans.: Accused Pawan and accused Vinay
Sharma were sitting on my backside of
the driver’s seat and whereas accused
Akshay was sitting in the driver’s cabin
while my brother Ram Singh, since
deceased was asking for passengers.
Q.5.: It is in evidence against you that
after entering the bus PW 1 noticed that
seats cover of the bus were of red
colour and it had yellow-coloured
curtains and the windows of the bus had
black film on it. The windows were at
quite a height as in luxury buses. As PW
1 sat down inside the bus, he noticed
that two of you accused were sitting in
the driver’s cabin were coming and
returning to the driver’s cabin. PW 1
paid an amount of Rs 20 as bus fare to
the conductor i.e. Rs 10 per head. What
do you have to say?
25
Ans.: It is correct that the windows of
the bus, Ext. P-1 were having black film
on it but I cannot say if the seats of
the bus were having red covers or that
the curtains were of yellow colour as my
brother Ram Singh, since deceased, only
used to drive the bus daily and that on
that day since he was drunk heavily so I
had gone to Munirka to bring him to my
house and hence, I was driving the bus
on that day. I had gone to Munirka with
my nephew on my cycle to fetch Ram
Singh, since deceased, and that the
other boys along with Ram Singh had
already taken the bus from R.K. Puram. I
was called by Ram Singh on phone to come
at Munirka.”
37. The contention raised by Mr. Sharma is that
accused No.2-Mukesh was not present in the bus has
been considered in the judgment of this Court in more
than one place. Presence of accused No.2-Mukesh in
the bus has also been considered while considering
the presence of witness PW-82, Shri Ram Adhar in the
bus in para (298). As pointed out above, in his
questioning under Section 313 Crl.P.C., accused No.2-
Mukesh has admitted that he and accused No.1-Ram
Singh (since deceased) are brothers and on the night
of 16.12.2012, he (accused No.2-Mukesh) was driving
the bus and that accused-Pawan and accused-Vinay
Sharma were seated on the back side of the driver
26
seat whereas accused-Akshay was sitting in the
Driver's cabin. Accused-Ram Singh and JCL, Raju were
calling for passengers by saying "Palam/Dwarka Mod".
When there is such clear admission in the questioning
under Section 313 Cr.P.C, now the Petitioner-accused
No.2-Mukesh cannot raise the plea denying his
presence in the bus.
38. Another contention raised by accused No.2-Mukesh
is that he could not have been present in the bus on
16.12.2012 at 08.55 p.m. as seen from Call Details
Record (CDR) and that his phone number was giving the
location of Lajpat Nagar. This issue has been
elaborately argued and dealt with as overlapping of
signals in close proximity is common.
39. This Court had elaborately considered all the
three dying declarations. All the three dying
declarations having been relied by trial court, High
Court and this Court and all arguments attacking the
dying declarations having been considered and
rejected, in its judgment dated 05.05.2017, we are of
the view that the petitioner cannot be allowed to re-
27
agitate the same issues which were already considered
and expressly rejected by this Court.
40. The victim made three dying declarations:- (i)
statement recorded by PW-49 Dr. Rashmi Ahuja
immediately after the victim was admitted to the
hospital; (ii) Dying declaration (Ex.PW-27/A)
recorded by PW-27 SDM Usha Chaturvedi on 21.12.2012;
and (iii) dying declaration(Ex.PW-30/D) recorded by
PW-30 Pawan Kumar, Metropolitan Magistrate on
25.12.2012 at 1:00 p.m. by multiple choice questions
and recording answers by gestures and writing. In the
first dying declaration (Ex.PW-49/A), the prosecutrix
has stated that more than two men committed rape on
her, bit her on lips, cheeks and breast and also
subjected her to unnatural sex. In the second dying
declaration (Ex.PW-27/A) recorded by PW-27, the
victim has narrated the entire incident in great
detail, specifying the role of each accused, rape
committed by number of persons, insertion of iron rod
in her private parts, description of the bus, robbery
committed and throwing of both the victims out of the
28
moving bus in naked condition. On 25.12.2012 at 1:00
p.m., PW-30 Pawan Kumar, Metropolitan Magistrate
recorded the statement by putting multiple choice
questions to the victim and by getting answers
through gestures and writing. While making the
third declarati

Umtiti's header takes France to WC final

Sports

DF-Xinhua Report

Samuel Umtiti's 51st minute header earned France a place in Sunday's World Cup final as they defeated Belgium 1-0 in St Petersburg on Tuesday night.

   Umtiti took advantage of a lapse in defense to nod the ball past Thibaut Courtois via a slight deflection to give them a win in a tight but entertaining game, where one small detail made the difference.

   France welcomed Blaise Matudi back into midfield following suspension and retained their habitual 4-2-3-1 system, while Belgium returned to a system of three central defenders, with the powerful Axel Witsel, Moussa Dembele, Nacer Chadli and Marouane Fellaini in the middle of the park in what was virtually a 3-2-4-1 formation.

   Kylian Mbappe showed his pace after just 10 seconds with a run down the right and a cross that was just hacked away from the advancing Antoine Griezmann, before Belgium took control of the ball with the mobile Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne both producing dangerous balls into the area, before Hazard fired just wide in the 15th minute and saw Raphael Varene flick the ball over when a shot looked destined for the net.

   Hugo Lloris was then twice in the action, punching clear from Fellaini and saving at full stretch to deny Toby Alderweireld's shot on the turn as Belgium pressed for the opening goal.

   Hazard was pulling the strings for Belgium, but the game ebbed and flowed as the first half progressed with Giroud the focus of France's attacks, putting a Mbappe cross wide when well-placed 11 minutes before the break.

   Benjamin Pavard went closer with a shot Courtois saved with his outstretched foot after Mbappe had hypnotized the Belgian defense.

   France took the lead in the 51st minute after Umtiti got in front of Fellaini to nod past Courtois, who five minutes later produced a fine save to deny Olivier Giroud, put through by Mbappe's backheel.

   Dries Mertens came on for Dembele, but Fellaini headed his cross just wide in the 65th minute as the game once more opened up.

   Witsel drew a good save out of Lloris with 10 minutes remaining as Belgium lay siege to the France goal, but it was a night where the final pass was always just wayward and on Sunday the French will once again march on Moscow.

I too, met with Ian Mercer on Tuesday, to conduct a trade. He had geekmailed me saying that he would not be at the meetups, and since I had BINed and committed to some of his items, I felt obligated to conduct our trade off schedule. Maybe future VFMs can state that those that can't make official meetups need to state so in their listings.

I WAS able to connect with Jeromy Donlon at Thursday's meetup.

Until we are able to find a way to organize this VFM, there are going to be issues with finding each other.

While I don't know him personally, I did meet up with Ian Mercer on Tuesday and he bought a game from me and I bought a game from him. It sucks that others had difficulty connecting with him.

I (and many others standing around on Saturday) had the same problem with Jeromy Donlon (Jeromy).
He never showed during the scheduled hours for Thursday or Saturday, and many of us were looking for him.
In my book he owes me $5.

Otherwise, meeting everyone else was fun, friendly, and professional.
Thanks for the sales and purchases, everyone.

          Primal Guide to Allulose Sweetener      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A few months back, I put Swerve under the proverbial microscope. This time I'm looking at a relative newcomer in the alternative sweetener field. Allulose is quickly growing in popularity, since it's both naturally occurring and virtually identical to table sugar in taste and texture. Then there's the claim of sidestepping many of the ill-health effects associated with many other sweeteners. I know many of you are with me when I bring a sizable dose of skepticism to these kinds of bold proclamations. So, I did my own research, asking whether it's truly the full-flavor, guilt-free choice many suggest it is. And, if it is (or if it comes close), I wondered, what are its best uses in the kitchen? What is Allulose? When it comes down to it, allulose isn’t all that unlike glucose or fructose. The three are all monosaccharides, the simplest form of carbohydrate. Like glucose and fructose, allulose is also naturally occurring—unlike the vast array of artificial sweeteners on the market today. Still, as we know, “natural” doesn’t always mean “healthy.” Fructose, for example, is synonymous with fruit. Conventional wisdom teaches us that fruit is healthy, but Primal folks are well aware that increasing consumption of fructose is associated with a plethora of health risks from diabetes to cardiovascular disease. And considering allulose has virtually the same chemical makeup as fructose, that might raise some eyebrows. But chemical legacies aside, there appear to be some key differences between allulose and its monosaccharide cousins. Unlike fructose and glucose, which are found in abundance in the foods we eat, allulose is a very rare sugar that's hard to find in nature—popping up in only a few foods like wheat, figs, raisins and jackfruit. Next, allulose (aka psicose) is an epimer of fructose. In essence, this means that while allulose has the same atomic makeup as fructose, it has a minor structural variation. This miniscule difference supposedly has far-reaching effects, however, with preliminary trials showing that around 70% of allulose is excreted in urine and that it has very low fermentability in the gut—meaning you're less likely to experience gas, bloating, and digestive upset after eating it. (Those who react to other natural alternative sweeteners probably know what I'm talking about here.) Because so little allulose is utilized by our bodies for energy, the caloric implications from consuming it are supposedly quite minor. While it has 70% the relative sweetness of sucrose (table sugar), it has only 0.3% of the energy. Marketers are calling allulose a “zero calorie” sweetener, and in this case they're not stretching the truth too much in saying so. In terms of manufacturing, however, allulose does share another similarity to fructose: it's primarily produced from corn, along with several other plants. These days, much of the science surrounding allulose is focused on the most efficient enzymatic catalyst for converting fructose into psicose, in order to maximize extraction (and therefore profits).

          Quackcast 382 - Suspension of disbelief      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

LISTEN!

 This week we talk about maintaining suspension of disbelief: the way you  have to convince people of the world you comic is set in and keep them  there. Everything you do is done for that, to convince them your  characters make sense and the world works. There's a very mistaken idea  that this ONLY applies to fantasy or SciFi. No, tt applies to ALL  fiction and even non-fiction in the case of stories and jokes from your  friends, biographies and autobiographies. You have to maintain a  suspension of disbelief in all these things in order to fully enjoy and  be a part of the story.
MANY things can knock you out of it or shake  it, not just “magic and dragons” or spaceships and aliens. The story  could be about a New York homicide investigation and you use incorrect  procedure, or your syntax and slang is wrong… Something as simple as  that can break you out of your immersion in the story. A notable  instance from me was when I was reading the stories of Brigadier Gerard  by noted Sherlock Holmes author Arthur Conan Doyle. They're about a  Hussar in Napoleon's Imperial army. Doyle hadn't done his research and  didn't know that a Brigadier in the French army was a very low rank  unlike in the British army, Gerard was also supposed to be a towering,  well built brute of a man, when French hussars were small, lightly built  young men on light horses. Doyle was so fundamentally ignorant of his  subject that suspension of disbelief was a struggle.
We chat about  problems with Avatar, Indiana Jones, and also breaking the fourth wall:  where you deliberately attack suspension of disbelief and in doing so  strengthen it. We offer up some solutions for maintaining suspension of  disbelief.

This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to RIDDICK  Q LOSS TALES. This is fast paced cool, speedy jazz for the active  person, wild and frenetic buzzing trumpets with an awesome rhythm  section. It’s all happening here! The club is jumping and the music’s  pumping!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Brown's Patreon Page

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dyason's year-old Patreon

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It is an open source package which relays on CBSD to provide lower level management for jails and virtual machines. If you have ever used Vagrant or Docker Compose, Reggae is best described as an alternative to those. It enables you easy development inside jail while code editing is done on the host. It makes transition from development to production easier by using provisioners. It makes host clean of all requirements of development and puts them inside jail which is easily stopped, started, provisioned, and destroyed. WWW: https://github.com/cbsd/reggae New port added with couple of changes: 1. cbsd dependency line was changed to include relative path to the cbsd binary. Without that poudriere fails to stage the package with "pkg-static: Insufficient privileges to add packages" message 2. LICENSE_FILE and NO_ARCH knobs were added 3. DATADIR variable in pkg-plist was replaced with relative path, because redefining of this variable on build time is not supported by reggae - it doesn't expect to change REGGAE_DIR var and this path is actually hardcoded in scripts.

          Ocean Temperature - Part 1      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

How have we measured the temperature of the ocean’s upper layer in the last 150 years? How does understanding physical processes and observational errors help to standardise climate data and understand climate change?

Why do we measure ocean temperature?

Convective clouds over Western Pacific

In the tropical atmosphere, tall clouds such as those shown in Figure 1 are governed by sea surface temperature, and one of the surprising hypotheses of climate change (known as the Thermostat Hypothesis) states that they, in turn, limit the maximum temperatures above the ocean by reflecting sunlight. These kinds of feedback loops between ocean temperature and other meteorological and oceanographic features, such as clouds, atmospheric circulation, ocean currents, and precipitation, are the reason why measuring sea surface temperature is an important element of today’s climate-change debate.

Sea surface temperature (SST) is also one of the climate indices with the longest histories of direct measurements. Because ocean makes up about 70% of the total Earth’s surface, changes in the temperature of its surface are a key factor for determining the global temperature of the planet’s surface.

Global changes in sea surface temperature

Figure 2: Global changes in sea surface temperature based on two different climate databases, which only use temperature measurements above the ocean. The data are expressed as deviations from the 1961–1990 average. Source: Jones, 2016.

Global se-surface temperature distribution

Figure 3: Global sea-surface temperature distribution on 13 December 2010 (La Niña) and on 3 December 2015 (El Niño). The data are based on the measurements using the following instruments: Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), Moderate Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), and Terra and Aqua and Advanced Microwave Spectroradiometer-EOS (AMSR-E). Source: PODAAC.

Sea surface temperature is also important in forecasting many atmospheric phenomena. Figure 3 shows the sea surface temperature distribution in December 2010 and in December 2015. There are visible differences on the Pacific between these two years.

The late 2010 – early 2011 season (on the left) was a period of La Niña, and the late 2015 – early 2016 season (on the right) was a period of a strong El Niño. During El Niño, the water temperature off the coast of South America is higher than during La Niña. Not only does it influence precipitation in South America, but it also affects the weather in the middle latitudes.

The occurrence of El Niño or La Niña can be diagnosed by indices based on the measurements of the ocean’s upper layer temperature.

Many details of oceanic flows are visible in the satellite images of sea surface temperature. In Figure 4, you can see large areas of warm water in the western Pacific and in the eastern Indian Ocean, which lead to high precipitation in Indonesia. In the eastern Pacific, a narrow swath of lower temperatures is marked as a “Cold tongue.” This is where the so-called Tropical Instability Waves develop.

Figure 5 shows the northern area of the Atlantic. In the blue frame, you can see the Gulf Stream, which carries warm water from the subtropics northwards, and then towards Europe, causing European winters to be warmer than in other areas on similar latitudes.

Measuring the ocean’s upper layer temperature is also important in forecasting tropical cyclones. In Figure 6, which shows the sea surface temperature distribution around the eye of hurricane Frances, you can see that the eye moves towards warmer areas, leaving a “cold trail” behind. The existence of such trails means that hurricanes draw a lot of their energy from the ocean, and then convert it to kinetic energy of the winds through condensation of water vapour. A warm anomaly of sea surface temperature under a moving storm can cause it to rapidly intensify. It is also possible (although still largely up for debate) that the rise of ocean temperatures caused by global warming can increase the number and the intensity of hurricanes in a warming climate.

Definitions

Definitions of different sea surface temperatures

Figure 7: Definitions of different sea surface temperatures. SSTskin is measured in infrared, SSTsub-skin is measured in microwaves. Source: GHRRST.

But what exactly is sea-surface temperature? Before we move on to the measurement techniques, let us have a look at Figure 7, which illustrates the vertical profile of temperature in the ocean’s upper layer, up to a depth of around 10 metres (foundation depth). Figure 7 shows typical night-time and daytime temperature distributions. This “foundation” sea-surface temperature, marked with a blue star, is usually observed throughout the entire layer by the end of the night, and it is the parameter used to express the changes in sea-surface temperature.

However, as shown in Fig. 7, there are “different” sea surface temperatures, which depend on the measurement depth. At the interface of air and ocean, a white star marks SSTint temperature. It is usually a little lower than the temperature of the water directly beneath it. This is because energy is emitted through infrared radiation. SSTint is the temperature that would be observed at the very surface of the water, but its definition has mostly theoretical importance, because it is impossible to directly measure the temperature at this interface.

The red and yellow stars mark the sea surface temperatures measured at around 10 micrometres (for comparison, a human hair is about 60 micrometres thick) and a couple of millimetres from the air-water interface. It turns out that infrared electromagnetic radiation only penetrates the ocean to a very small depth. Microwave radiation reaches slightly deeper, up to a few millimetres. Water temperatures measured at these depths are called skin and subskin sea surface temperatures, or skin sea-surface temperatures with regard to infrared and to microwave radiation. They can be indirectly calculated based on satellite measurements.

The green star represents sea-surface temperature as observed at a given depth. It can be measured, for example, using a bucket, a scoop, drifting buoys or water drawn from overboard to cool a ship’s engine. As measurements can be taken at different depths, it is generally denoted by SST with added information about the depth of measurement, e.g. SST(18cm).

Sea surface temperature changes when the upper layer of the ocean absorbs sunlight. This leads to diurnal temperature variations: a warm layer is formed during the day, and usually disappears at the end of the night. The vertical profile of this warm layer is not yet thoroughly understood. Its structure depends on how transparent water is, which is linked to the amount of phytoplankton, the wind speeds at the ocean’s surface and the vertical flow of water. All throughout the night and day, energy is radiated from the ocean surface in infrared. Temperature is also governed by water evaporation.

In the last couple of years, all methods of measurement are being reduced to determine the foundation sea surface temperature as defined above. In other words, no matter what measurement techniques were used or when the observations were performed, we try to introduce systematic corrections so that all measurements have the same point of reference. In practice, these systematic corrections are sometimes very hard to implement, especially if the measurements were performed a few dozen years ago.

Direct measurements – at first, we used wooden buckets

Buckets tied to ropes would be thrown off a ship, then pulled back up (Figure 8). Next, thermometers would be put inside the buckets to measure the water’s temperature. This is how measurements of sea surface temperature began around 150 years ago. The decision to start such measurements had been made during the International Maritime Conference in 1853, mainly to improve the security of marine navigation. They were performed by voluntary observing ships during their regular voyages. As it turns out, it is currently the longest-running measurement series available to assess the changes in Earth’s surface temperature.

Other climate data and methods of evaluating changes in temperature are based on paleoclimatic indices, that is information coming not from direct measurements, but from indirect assessments or numeric models. Thermometers in water buckets offer direct measurements, which is why they are so important.

Although a measurement protocol known as “the Abstract Log” had been in place since 1853, many different techniques were still used afterwards, making it difficult to standardise the results today. Measurement techniques have evolved during the 150 years – wooden buckets have been replaced by canvas and rubber buckets, then we measured the temperature of water used to cool the engine, since 1971 we used moored buoys, and since 1978 we also used buoys drifting on the surface of the ocean. Today we also commonly use satellite measurements. At times, external circumstances changed – during WWII European ships rarely performed measurements, so most of the data comes from American vessels. Furthermore, no one measured temperature during the night, so as not to reveal the ship’s position.

What happens to water in a bucket after pulling it on board a ship? During the day, the Sun shines on the bucket and wind causes evaporation. The material of which the bucket is built causes water temperature to change faster or slower, depending on air temperature. Scientists have used various techniques to estimate the changes in the temperature of water in a bucket standing on board a ship. One such method is a laboratory measurement (Figure 9). The results of such a procedure can be expressed through mathematical expressions that account for factors such as incoming solar radiation, loss of energy through infrared radiation, size and material of the bucket, wind speed, water mixing, and the initial difference of temperature and humidity between air and water. For example (Figure 10), if a measurement was performed 3 minutes after pulling the bucket up, and water was 5°C warmer than air, it would cool down by 0.2°C – in other words, the reports systematically understate sea surface temperature. This “cold error” is now taken into account through correction of sea surface temperature measurements, which is one of the methods of standardising climate data.

Direct measurements – drifters

If you throw a ball in a river, it will go downstream. In the late 1970s, the first buoys were built and deployed to drift in the ocean. Drifters, as they are called, consist of a sphere, inside of which there is equipment to measure temperature, batteries and a system that enables communication with satellites passing above. Based on the position obtained from a GPS receiver, the buoy’s speed and direction of movement can be determined, and satellite data transmission allows us to estimate sea surface temperature at a depth of around 18 centimetres below the air-water interface.

A typical buoy is about 40 centimetres across, and is tethered to something that resembles a “holey sock,” a 7-metre-long cylinder that limits the drift to the velocities and directions of water currents around 15 metres below the ocean’s surface. A large number of drifters released into the ocean approximately 500 kilometres apart can help to gauge sea surface temperature over vast areas.

In the last two decades, we had about 1300 buoys drifting on the ocean’s surface. Some of them provide information not only about ocean currents and water temperature, but also about surface pressure and/or water salinity. Sometimes drifters are deployed before tropical cyclones to measure the hurricane’s cold trail, that is the decrease in water temperature caused by the interaction between the ocean and the atmospheric circulation in the cyclone.

The fact that buoys drift, shoved by wind and ocean currents, is in itself not good for global temperature measurements, because after some time drifters tend to end up on a shore or close together. For this reason, a few dozen new drifters are deployed every year. In measuring temperature, drifters typically use a small sensor – an epoxy-coated thermistor in a steel tube that sticks out from the spherical buoy casing close to the bottom. The precision of such measurements is around 0.1°C, but because drifters spend a couple of years in the ocean, there may occur systematic variations of absolute temperature reported by thermometers. However, they are usually relatively minor. Surface buoys are an important source of global sea-surface temperature measurements, because they may be deployed virtually anywhere, as opposed to ship-based measurements, which are generally performed on the sea routes between economically important regions.

We should stop to think about what exactly “global temperature measurements” are. On land, temperature measurement stations are placed about 300 kilometres apart, and measurements are performed at so-called synoptic hours – simultaneously throughout the world. The word “synoptic” derives from Greek words meaning “together with” and “view,” which is why in oceanography and meteorology, it means simultaneous measurements. Due to the vastness of the global oceans, taking simultaneous measurements every 300 kilometres has always been difficult. Drifters allowed us to obtain a more “synoptic” and global image of water temperature.

Buoy array in equatorial regions

One of the most important achievements of the last two decades was to establish a measurement array of moored buoys (see Figure 14) throughout the equatorial regions of the Pacific, the Indian Ocean and the Atlantic (TAO/TRITON, RAMA and PIRATA). They are used not only to measure sea surface temperature, but also for measurements below the surface and for atmospheric measurements. The buoys are deployed on various latitudes between 10° S and 10° N. Moored buoys play an important role in satellite instrument calibration. On the other hand, they require relatively frequent and expensive maintenance. A ship needs to visit them every dozen or so months to replace the instruments. Due to these costs, the future of this network is currently uncertain.

          NFL Players Union Files Grievance Over League's New National Anthem Policy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The NFL had intended for its rule to achieve a resolution. For more than a year , controversy had eddied endlessly around players' decisions to kneel during the national anthem. And the league thought a policy requiring players to stand for the anthem if they were on the field — but also allowing them to stay off the field and out of sight — would end an uncomfortable conversation that had reached even the White House. But if it was resolution the league was seeking, the move failed. The NFL Players Association announced Tuesday that it has filed a grievance against the league "on behalf of all players." "The union's claim is that this new policy, imposed by the NFL's governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights," the group explained in a statement . Virtually from the moment the new rule was rolled out in May, the NFLPA has made its displeasure clear, saying NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

          Talasea Airstrip in Talasea, Papua New Guinea      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The WWII planes lie within the jungle around the abandoned runway.

The South Pacific is littered with relics leftover from World War II. Military tunnels snake beneath tiny towns. Planes and equipment lie sunken beneath the water, cloaked in coral. Dense tangles of jungle hold more forgotten wartime treasures, like this abandoned airfield.

Originally built by the Australian army as a small landing strip, Talasea was occupied by both the Japanese and Americans as the second World War changed hands. Too small to accommodate fighter planes, the the airfield was used as an emergency landing strip in the later part of the war.

In early September 1944, the landing strip saw its final pieces of action. On September 3, 1944, an American B-25H bomber took off from Stirling Island with the objective of locating and destroying any remaining Japanese ships of the South Coast of New Britain. While the mission was a success, the B-25H aircraft incurred engine trouble, and rather than risk the flight back to its base, the captain made the decision to make an emergency landing at Talasea.

In a similar mission less than a week later, a Lockheed Ventura was dispatched to bomb a Japanese-occupied airstrip near Rabaul. The Lockheed's mission was successful, but one engine failed on the return journey. As the crew knew the plane wouldn't make it all the way back to base, they too made the decision to land at Talasea.

Shortly after the war ended, the airstrip at Talasea was abandoned. Palm oil plantations sprung up around Talasea in the 1960s, and nature gradually encroached around the planes. Today, the airstrip is virtually unrecognizable from its former runway glory.

But the land still holds tidbits of its wartime past, as both the B-25 bomber and Lockheed remain in their final resting places. While exploring on foot, make your way through the overgrown bush and you’ll reach the B-25H bomber, resting on its undercarriage atop a bed of lush greenery.

Fewer than 40 yards to the west lies the Lockheed Ventura. With the Allied star just about still visible on its side, you can still walk inside the plant-filled undercarriage and imagine the tight spaces where the pilots and crew would have sat.


          Whale House in Santa Barbara, California      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Front entrance to the Whale House.

What's large, gray, and shingled all over? Mission Canyon's very own "Whale House." Camouflaged in the woods of a suburb of Santa Barbara and a stone's throw from the city's Botanic Gardens, this stunning home feels like a fantasy hideout come to life.

The home, now available for vacation rental, is aptly named. Its somewhat whale-shaped exterior is made up completely of undulating rows of gray cedar shingles. The unusual abode was designed by architect Michael Carmichael and completed in 1978 after three years and with the help of 20 craftsmen.

The one-acre lot the Whale House sits on is so magical, it's the main element that inspired Carmichael to experiment with organic design in the first place. In the tradition of Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí, whose nature-based designs exemplified the Catalan Modernist movement in Barcelona, Carmichael was moved to design a home that did not detract from its natural surroundings, and in fact bowed to them.

The Whale House has no flat walls and virtually no straight lines. Three bedrooms (which can sleep nine) and 3.5 bathrooms let people live comfortably within the belly of the sea creature. A 75-foot lap pool leads to the tail of the whale (read: a detached guest house). Further playing upon the home's name, Carmichael littered the entrance with rocks to emulate a whale's mouth full of teeth, and used a high-sitting stained glass window to serve as the mammal's eye.

          El PP mantendrá a la Valedora hasta que no haya «una sentencia firme»      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Milagros Otero seguirá siendo la Valedora do Pobo, al menos hasta que se resuelva el recurso que —tal y como anunció— presentará contra la sentencia que anuló un nombramiento en esta institución y en la que se recoge que intercedió para que la elegida fuese una candidata próxima. Los 41 votos del Partido Popular sirvieron este martes para tumbar la petición formulada por PSdeG y En Marea —y también respaldada por el BNG— que reclamaba el cese de la responsable del Alto Comisionado a raíz del citado fallo del Tribunal Superior de Xustiza de Galicia (TSXG). Tras mantener hasta el último momento la incógnita sobre cuál sería el sentido de su voto, la diputada popular Paula Prado despejó todas las sospechas desde la tribuna, donde defendió que los documentos y las explicaciones aportadas por Milagros Otero en sede parlamentaria prueban que, aunque sí pudieron existir «errores en la estrategia de defensa» por parte de la institución, «no hubo desvío de poder por parte de nadie». «Aquí no estamos en sede judicial, sino que construimos un juicio político a partir de la documentación que tenemos y que no se puede manipular», enfatizó la parlamentaria. Tal y como recalcó la responsable del Alto Comisionado tras el estallido de la polémica, Prado insistió en que, al contrario de lo que se recoge en el fallo judicial, los requisitos necesarios para acceder a esa plaza ya estaban fijados con anterioridad, por lo que no existió mediación alguna por parte de Otero. Además, la diputada popular subrayó el hecho de que la sentencia del TSXG aún no es firme, por lo que aclaró que su grupo mantendrá su respaldo a la Valedora, al menos, hasta que se resuelva el recurso que la propia institución avanzó que presentará. «No vamos a tomar decisiones firmes cuando no hay una sentencia firme», resumió la diputada del PPdeG. La popular aprovechó su intervención para recordar que Milagros Otero ejecutó el fallo del alto tribunal y procedió a anular el polémico nombramiento en menos de 48 horas, pese a que la sentencia recogía un margen de 60 días para hacerlo efectivo. Además Paula Prado defendió ante los reproches de la oposición que, desde su elección en el año 2015, la titular del Alto Comisionado ha cumplido con «todas las obligaciones de su cargo», resolviendo cada año un mayor número de expedientes. «Ustedes han pedido su dimisión en reiteradas ocasiones, y todas tenían como objeto el cumplimiento de sus obligaciones», reprochó Paula Prado, al tiempo que acusó a En Marea, PSdeG y BNG de dar con esta petición «un paso más en su carrera por la destrucción de las instituciones». Críticas de la oposición Los tres grupos de la oposición coincidieron en cambio a la hora de pedir la dimisión de la Valedora do Pobo. El líder y portavoz parlamentario de En Marea, Luís Villares, apeló durante toda su intervención a los diputados populares, a los que instó a retirarle su apoyo a Otero. «El PP se va a retratar, o está con los derechos fundamentales o está con la corrupción», espetó el magistrado en excedencia. Asimismo, argumentó que «el hecho de que un tribunal le tenga que reprochar» a Milagros Otero «que obstruye la transparencia» supone un «auténtico bochorno democrático». Por último, Villares incidió en que, al margen de esta polémica, existen «motivos suficientes» para demandar su destitución. «Galicia no se merece pasar este bochorno y vivir esta vergüenza», concluyó el parlamentario rupturista. La parlamentaria socialista Patricia Vilán, por su parte, acusó a la responsable del Alto Comisionado de vivir «una realidad virtual y paralela». En opinión de Vilán, la Valedora tendría que haber sido cesada el pasado jueves, cuando los tres grupos de la oposición rechazaron sus explicaciones en sede parlamentaria. «Ya no tiene el apoyo de 45 diputados de esta Cámara», censuró la socialista, recordando que para realizar este nombramiento fue necesaria una mayoría cualificada de tres quintos. Finalmente, el diputado nacionalista Xosé Luís Rivas incidió en la necesidad de «salvar la institución del descrédito» apoyando la destitución de la Valedora o Pobo tras el fallo del TSXG. «(Otero) podría haber sido la cabeza visible de la imparcialidad, pero no lo fue», lamentó desde la tribuna el parlamentario del BNG.

          NFL Players Union Files Grievance Over League's New National Anthem Policy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The NFL had intended for its rule to achieve a resolution. For more than a year , controversy had eddied endlessly around players' decisions to kneel during the national anthem. And the league thought a policy requiring players to stand for the anthem if they were on the field — but also allowing them to stay off the field and out of sight — would end an uncomfortable conversation that had reached even the White House. But if it was resolution the league was seeking, the move failed. The NFL Players Association announced Tuesday that it has filed a grievance against the league "on behalf of all players." "The union's claim is that this new policy, imposed by the NFL's governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights," the group explained in a statement . Virtually from the moment the new rule was rolled out in May, the NFLPA has made its displeasure clear, saying NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

          Southgate, England ready to face music of soccer history      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MOSCOW — Gareth Southgate and England are ready to face the music.

No other soccer nation dwells on decades of failure quite like the English. Southgate was so demoralized by his penalty kick failure against Germany in the 1996 European Championship semifinals, he avoided The Lightning Seeds "Three Lions," the team's official song when it hosted the tournament.

Now the song, with its repeated chorus of "football's coming home," is a staple again, No. 5 this week on YouTube UK's top music videos chart with more than 2 million views on the day of England's last match.

"'Football's coming home' is a song I couldn't even listen to for 20 years, frankly, so for me it has a slightly different feel," Southgate said Tuesday on the eve of England's World Cup semifinal match against Croatia. "But it's nice to hear people enjoying it again."

When the song first was released, the chorus proclaimed "Three lions on a shirt/Jules Rimet still gleaming/Thirty years of hurt/never stopped me dreaming." A 1998 update changed the third verse to "no more years of hurt."

England hasn't played in the semifinals of a major tournament since Southgate's penalty kick at Wembley was saved by Andreas Koepke 22 years ago, and Andrea Moeller put the next kick over David Seaman and under the crossbar. The most-cherished national team memory remains the 1966 World Cup final victory at Wembley over West Germany, a demarcation point in the island's history as much as 1066 (the Norman invasion) and 1707 (union with Scotland).

"It was a long time ago, so not too many of us can remember that far back," said midfielder Jordan Henderson, born in 1990.

The winner Wednesday advances to Sunday's final against France. Southgate wants to break stereotypes, and not just on the field.

"I'm rare breed. I'm an Englishman that doesn't drink tea," he said.

England and Croatia are teams that innovated over time but have generally been immutable during the World Cup, sticking to virtually identical starting lineups except for group phase finales, after advancement was secure. In the other four games, Croatia's only variable to its 4-2-3-1 formation was whether to start captain Luka Modric in a deep midfield role and Andrej Kramaric more advanced, or to move up Modric and start Marcelo Brozovic.

Right back Sime Vrsaljko limped off during the quarterfinal win over host Russia and goalkeeper Danijel Subasic had a hamstring injury during extra time but remained in the match. When asked about injuries, Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic responded through a translator with inconclusive palaver about Vrsaljko having "this niggle."

England has gone with a 3-5-2, and the only change was to start Ruben Loftus-Cheek in midfield after Dele Alli injured a thigh.

"The biggest thing that the gaffer's brought since he's come in, which he's brought right from day one, was identity, and about the way that we wanted to create a team," Henderson said. "You can see that togetherness on the pitch now, and I think that's valuable in crucial moments in big games, and yeah, I can definitely say this is most together England team that I've been involved in, and so I think that makes a massive difference and you get your rewards for that."

With an average age of 26, England is one of the youngest teams at the World Cup.

"We were never quite sure how far this team could go," Southgate said. "The age of the players, the improvement in the players, the hunger in the players has been apparent for everybody to see. We're really proud in the style that we've played, with the intelligence that we've played, and that we've performed under pressure and dealt with difficult situations in games where we've had to wait until the last minute to score, we've had to recover from conceding in last minute, we've been through extra time, penalties."

Croatia made its only semifinal appearance in 1998, losing 2-1 to host France. Defender Dejan Lovren is a teammate of Henderson's on Champions League finalist Liverpool, and Lovren bristled when asked about a 4-1 loss at Tottenham last October when England striker Harry Kane scored twice.

"It's completely irrelevant," he said through a translator. "Why didn't you ask me how I played well against him? You are just nitpicking my poor performances."

This line was usually followed by nothing that would actually bother me: a question about the week’s materials, a link to an interesting resource, a discussion about a potential research topic, and the like. This was all despite my many attempts to ensure that students did not feel like they were imposing whenever they contacted me: a pre-semester introductory email, a video welcoming them to the course, my biography and teaching philosophy, virtual office hours, and multiple reminders about my contact information. Yet, with all of my entreaties to reach out, I was still dealing with the real issues of isolation, fear, and frustration that results in students leaving their online courses. To combat these feelings, professors—myself included—have to deliberately, consistently, and relentlessly work to build student-faculty and student-student relationships in online courses.

As educators, we know that building community in the online environment increases the likelihood of student success. Finding ways to concretize something as ephemeral as “a sense of belonging” can be difficult; however, here are five places where you can start:

          Comment on Understanding Your Praxis Raw Score by David Recine      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hi Emily, Wow, that's a little hard to say! 200 is the maximum scaled score, since your scaled score is the percentage you got right, plus 100. So 200 could represent the maximum number of points available. 200 could also represent your actual score, if you answered every question correctly. And it's possible you did. With that said, to me personally it seems unlikely. I say this because I've both tutored and taken <a href="https://www.ets.org/s/praxis/pdf/5361.pdf" rel="nofollow">Praxis 5361</a>. So I know from experience that the exam has a handful of very obscure questions, with focuses such as court decisions related to public school ESL classroom support, obscure aspects of language acquisition theory, and so on. As a result, it's virtually impossible for a test-taker to get a full 100%, but not unheard of. It sounds like you either got the full 100%, or you were only shown total possible points and not actual score. On the latter count, that kind of computer error at the end of the test is not all that uncommon. I know this doesn't provide a concrete answer to your question, but hopefully I've shed some light on the possibilities. :)

          FS#59283: Consider keeping the newly deprecated --root option with its behavior      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Version 5.1 deprecated the "--root" option in favor of the new "--sysroot" option. While I aggree the new option is clearly useful on most common use cases, I do no not aggree with the fact it should deprecate the old option and its behavior. In some use cases you might want to use caches and configurations from the outside of the root.

I for example have a proper use case that make the old option much more relevant to me :

I have developped a set of tools that build slim vms or containers using pacman with the --root option. These systems do not have pacman installed inside. During installation, update, or installations of new packages, I use pacman from a separate host, a common cache directory also on said host, and a separate configuration for each vm/container. An overview of the file hierarchy of the setup host would be something like:

* /etc/pacman-dom//pacman.conf => this is a per domain configuration
* /etc/pacman-dom//hooks => hooks
* /etc/pacman-dom//* => other configuration files included from pacman.conf
* /var/lib/pacman-dom//db => per domain pacman database
* /var/cache/pacman-dom/pkgs => the common package cache

This architecture makes sense to me in the scope of a slim virtual machine manager and container builder, on top of pacman. Such model have two good properties I am interested in: one it helps me make slimmer systems with a common cache, two it greatly simplifies security when you do not have to trust what your virtual machines might do to their file systems over time.

The only solutions I can think of to keep these properties for my tools would be either to implement bind mounts before letting pacman doing its chroot with the --sysroot, or trying to make temporary copies (with possible temporary resizing) then removals. Which I think would add unnecessary complexity.

Could it be possible to just keep both options "--root" and "--sysroot" with their different behaviors ?

Cutting edge Turkish learning with apps, VR + AR

If you're searching for a cutting edge way to learn Turkish
, you are in luck. Mondly is reinventing the language learning space by creating unique ways for Turkish
learners to dive into a world of language immersion.

After creating a wildly popular app (30+ million downloads in 190+ countries) for iOS and Android, Mondly has gone on to create two breakthrough firsts in language education: the first VR (virtual reality) language learning experience with voice recognition and Chatbot technology and the first AR (augmented reality) language app with speech recognition.

Wow! Curious? Read on to discover much more about this one-of-a-kind mobile Turkish
learning service...

Play your way to fluency in Turkish

Mondly is a revolutionary way to learn Turkish
right from the comfort of your phone or computer. It takes you on a gamified Turkish
language journey designed around real-life situations like ordering food in a restaurant, dealing with emergencies and going on vacation - to name just a few.

Mondly covers beginner, intermediate and advanced Turkish
proficiency levels, sports an easy-to-use customizable dashboard plus world class multilingual speech recognition technology. Mondly allows you to synchronize your Turkish
learning between all devices (iOS, Android and Web).

Focus on useful Turkish
phrases rather than individual words

Mondly takes you beyond learning Turkish
vocabulary by focusing your learning time on high-frequency phrases that are immediately useful in real life.

Learn Turkish
by listening to native speakers

Mondly works with professional native Turkish
speakers to provide you with authentic pronunciations and natural accents.

Practice real Turkish
conversations

The Mondly method aims to get you immersed in Turkish
ASAP using chatbots, AR and VR, removing the stress of speaking with actual people until you're already comfortable conversing.

This single feature is key in overcoming the fear of speaking Turkish
before you dive in head first with natives - great for folks who are nervous about speaking Turkish
and want to get practice in a nearly-real-life way without the extra stress of being on the spot.

Retain more Turkish
using a unique spaced repetition system

Mondly's technology uses tested and effective intervals for repetition to help you acquire Turkish
fluency not only quickly but permanently.

Enjoy shiny new Turkish
lessons daily

The Mondly team works tirelessly to provide 20+ million active and ecstatic learners with new Turkish
lessons
every single day!

Turkish
language learning categories and lessons

Instead of having a linear approach to Turkish
, Mondly is highly-customizable and allows you to select topics that are of immediate interest or need to you rather than having to muck through a bunch of stuff you will likely never use.

Depending on your needs, you can select and choose from a wide variety of categories to get started learning Turkish
. These general categories include Family, Country & Languages, Travel, Vacation Activities, Public Transportation, Seasons & Weather, Romance, Core Vocabulary, Preparing a Trip, Airport, Business, Restaurant, Hotel, Fun, Bank, City Tour, Doctor, Help, Animals, Colors & Numbers, Fruits & Food, Parts of the Body and more.

Turkish
learning statistics and leaderboard

Often when learning Turkish
, we forget just how much we have progressed already and this can lead to frustration and potential abandonments of The Turkish
Dream. With Mondly, this is unlikely to happen! Their interface includes a nifty statistics section to keep you informed of exactly what you've learned and how much progress you are making.

In addition, you can challenge yourself to level up with other Mondly Turkish
learners using the leaderboard - this can be an excellent source of motivation and provides a way for you to compare yourself to others learning Turkish
all around the world. Who knows, you could be the next #1 spot on the Turkish
leaderboard!

The coolest bonus with Mondly Turkish

If you're like me and your language learning goals go beyond just learning Turkish
, Mondly is a top choice as they offer a single affordable price that gives you access to all 30+ available languages.

This means if you go ahead and subscribe to Mondly Turkish
now
, you will immediately get access to dozens of other languages as well!

Not only that, the ability to select both the language you want to learn in and the target language you are learning allows you to create custom combinations that fit your specific needs. If you're not a native English speaker, this could be just the thing you've been looking for, as you can choose to learn Turkish
from your native language rather than learning from English - and considerably improve the results you get from the time you spend playing your way to Turkish
fluency.

In case you're curious, this nifty feature allows for an astounding 1056 language course combinations in one product!

Mondly is changing the way millions of people learn Turkish
and 30+ other languages!

          IKE’S LIST OF DOMAINS AT AUCTION FOR Tuesday, July 10th      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Domain Shane Domain Shane:
There often seems to be confusion with the domain life cycle and the terminology that we use. Many of the terms are similar but have completely different meanings. Sometimes we have confusing conversations because we use the wrong terms, forget what the terms actually mean or never knew what the terms actually meant.
So let’s review.
Domains that are not renewed after one year expire. Expired domains that live with certain registrars go through an auction process before they delete. These expiring auction platforms include Godaddy, NameJet and Dynadot. These auction platforms also included private seller auctions. All of the expired domain auctions occur during the auto renew grace period. There are no deleted domains in any of these auctions.
After the domains go through the auto renew grace period, they enter Redemption. There are no auctions during this period because the registrar would need to pay Verisign to Redeem the domains.
After redemption the domains enter pending delete for 5 days. After the 5 day pending delete period the names actually delete, or drop. We often confusingly use “drop” for expiring auctions, not a big deal, but not appropriate and makes things unclear.
As the names delete, drop catching services catch the domains and most have an auction process for these newly registered domains. The biggest drop catchers are  DropCatch, SnapNames, Pheenix, Pool, and a few others.
Deleted domains cannot be auctioned in any platform, because they don’t exist. Caught domains however can be auctioned. Caught domains that go to auction were deleted, then available to drop catchers for some small fraction of a second.
If someone mentions deleted domain auctions then they’re talking about these Caught domains that were backordered, recaptured and now in an auction. They’re not talking about, or shouldn’t be talking about expired domain auctions. But like I said they’re not really deleted anymore, just sayin.
In any case, it’s always good review common terms that may be confusing, so that we all know what we’re talking about.

          Heartbreak Is Part of the Deal. . .      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The time seems ripe for a re-post of what is (at least by my own appraisal) probably the best thing I've ever posted in this humble space, so I commend this to your consideration once again. . .

-------------------------

Over the course of my nearly 40 years of parenthood, I have come to the conclusion that parenthood is, by its very nature, inherently heart-breaking.

That is not, by any means, to adopt a cynical or 'woe-is-me' attitude to the biggest, best, and noblest thing I've done with my life thus far (however poorly I've actually done it; and the empirical evidence is pretty damning).  It is to say that, one way or another, our kids will, inevitably, disappoint us; sometimes crushingly so.  And that the heartbreak of parenting is one of the main ways that we fulfil what Mother Theresa liked to refer to as 'our main task in this life' - 'to learn what it really means to love'.

When my kids were born, I held such high hopes and dreams for them.  Not, to be sure, that I had 'The Plan' for their lives, or anything like that.  I actually looked forward to the adventure of finding out who they were, and what amazing and wonderful traits they would blend from Jen and me into their own, unique selves, and what traits of theirs might go off in some entirely unforeseen directions.

And it has been wonderful to see all their lives unfold.  Several of our kids are very musical - 1F, 3M and 7M perhaps most especially.  3M, 7M and 8M are near-genius bright.  4M and 6F are both hard-working and good-looking, and 4M is a star athlete (sometimes I wonder how this kid ever came from me; Jen assures me that he did).  1F, 2F, 5M and 8M are all very kind and compassionate.  And so it goes.

But our kids, being, alas, human (wait, that doesn't sound right; I'm really, really glad that they aren't newts, or tapeworms, or whatever), are subject to the effects of The Fall, just like Jenn and I are (well, I know that I am; I'm pretty sure that she is, too, but her case is less obvious than mine).  And therein lie the seeds of heartbreak.  In our early years of parenthood, we hoped to raise a family of kids who were better than we were - with all our strengths (which we were just arrogant enough to think were considerable), but none (or at least, not so many) of our weaknesses.  We hoped that they would be smart, strong, wise, virtuous, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent, without all that nagging selfishness and venality.  Because, of course, we were better than our own parents had been, right?  (Well, of course not; but we thought we were.  It's a Boomer thing.)  And we would just impart our own superior wisdom, virtue, etc. to our kids, and all would be well.  Right?

(*sigh*)

When 1F was in her teens, people used to congratulate us for having raised such a wonderful young woman. And I (perhaps inspired by a salutary humility; or perhaps merely prophesying a glimpse of the future) used to reply that it wasn't really wonderful teenagers I was after, but rather capable, wise and virtuous adults. And it wasn't too many years before my own words were borne out, to my own chagrin.

Back in the days when our older kids were passing through middle school, the Religion teacher (if that strikes your ear as a trifle odd, it's a Catholic school thing. . .) was a very wise woman, who became a good friend.  In the course of a, uh, conversation we were having about one of our kids, who was proving to be a tad more intractable than we had planned on (but which didn't seem to faze her all that much), she told us, with a wistful maternal smile, that the day would inevitably come when we would find ourselves talking to the police about one of our children (and not necessarily the one we were discussing at the time); that it had happened to her, and that it happened to most parents sooner or later, no matter how earnest or capable they were, and that we shouldn't freak out when it did.  And Jenn and I both shook our heads inwardly, certain in our own minds that her words were ridiculous, that such a thing would never happen to parents as conscientious as we were.

Such touching naivete, right?

It wasn't that many years later (distressingly few, in fact) that one of our kids (I'll decline to say which one) threw back at us, as I was retrieving him from a night in jail, that all of our kids down to him had now had run-ins with the police, and that, as far as he was concerned, that constituted slam-dunk definitive empirical proof that we were simply, utterly, execrable parents (OK, he didn't use the word 'execrable', but he used one of its synonyms).  In the years since then, that flawless record has been extended by a few kids younger than him.

I have written elsewhere of some of the youthful (or even not-so-youthful) misadventures of our older kids.  I won't rehash them for you here (and I think I've mostly taken those posts down from my old blog), but trust me when I say that we were utterly, absolutely flabbergasted.  We'd said and done all the right things, as best we could see, and as best we were able (well, you know, aside from a certain proclivity to outbursts of temper, and a few (*ahem*) minor character flaws on that order; but God understands our weakness, right?), and it hadn't been enough.  And I can tell you that it hasn't ended with them; our younger kids have made their own significant contributions to the broken-ness of our hearts

It slowly dawned on us (perhaps a good bit more slowly than it should have, but both Jenn and I had been 'good kids', so our own experience had left us a tad ill-equipped to deal with kids who were less 'with the program' than we'd been) that God, in his wisdom, had blessed our children, just as he'd blessed us, with Free Will (what He was thinking when He did that, I've had occasion to wonder).  And that, our own earnestness and sincerity notwithstanding, our kids, even though made, as we were, in the Image and Likeness of God, were also, as we were, subject to the effects of The Fall, and capable of the same sorts of jaw-dropping venality we were; sometimes, even moreso.  Even astoundingly moreso.

Taken all together, in the fullness of time it became an occasion of deeper insight into what it means to be human, to carry simultaneously within ourselves, and virtually side-by-side, both significant markers of divinity, and appalling selfishness and venality.  And to learn, on a deep, down-and-dirty level, what Jesus was talking about when he said (in so many words) that the measure of love isn't how you treat agreeable, congenial people, but rather, in how you deal with (as Thomas a Kempis called them in The Imitation of Christ) "hard, obstinate and undisciplined people".  Which is to say, people like our kids.  And us.  At least, some of the time (distressingly much of it, to be brutally candid).  Put another way - it's not the absence of heartbreak, or disappointment, that makes our lives successful, it's what we DO with the heartbreak that will, inevitably, come into our lives – can we let “love cover a multitude of sins”, or not?

So yeah - heartbreak is part of the deal.  Our kids will never be as perfect as we wish they were, and their flaws will be all-too-evident (and the ones they've picked up from us will be duly galling).  But somewhere along the way, we'll have made progress toward what Mother Theresa was talking about, learning 'what it really means to love'. . .

Hi there - my name is James. I want to take some time to introduce myself and give you some background as to who I am, what I do, and how I’m hoping you can help.

My jobs / occupations are a bit complex. I split my time between working a “regular” job Monday - Wednesday, and I am also a real-estate investor, owner of an e-commerce website, and part-owner of a food truck.

Monday - Wednesday I work in finance / technology at the Boston Consulting Group, located at 1 Beacon St. Boston MA.

Also during the week and weekends, I own a company called Gladstone Capital, which focuses on buying under-valued real estate properties, fixing them up, and either renting them or selling them for a profit.

Additionally, I own and run the website www.big4bound.com, which helps students and working professionals land job offers from the Big 4 accounting firms (PwC, Deloitte, KPMG, EY).

Finally, two friends and I own and run the food truck Mustache Pretzels (www.mustachepretzels.com). We are co-located both in Scottsdale, AZ and Philadelphia, PA. I do not participate in the day-to-day activities, but work with the CEO to think through decisions and keep the business moving forward.

Things I will need help with:


        * Various ad-hoc administrative duties (scheduling, e-mails, some research / data entry, vendor selection)

        * Marketing and e-mail outreach

        * Social media for business

        * Accountability - I may ask you to periodically check in with me to see how I am progressing against various goals and hold me accountable for reaching them (personal and business)

        * Various personal tasks and research


Expectations we should have of each other:


        * Be radically truthful and transparent with everything.

        * You will let me know if something is unclear or not specific enough to complete a task before you start working on it. I will try my best to detail exact instructions and expectations of a task with expected timeframe and due dates before work begins. If you are on-pace to exceed that expectation please let me know as soon as possible.

        * I will consistently pay on time and as agreed, and you will provide high quality work in a timely manner.

        * I will provide detailed feedback and suggestions where appropriate, and you will pay extreme attention to detail and be mindful of spelling, grammar, and double check any data entry for typos.

I’m looking forward to reading your proposal and please let me know if you have any questions!

Best,
James

          Comment on US soldiers of “Black Hawk Down colonel” say we were ordered to kill Iraqi civilians by petrel41      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
July 12, 1993: A US attack force of 17 Cobra helicopter gunships and Blackhawk helicopters struck a neighborhood in the center of the Somali capital of Mogadishu. Firing 16 missiles and more than 2,000 rounds of 20-millimeter cannon fire, the fleet of warplanes laid waste to a building which housed large numbers of civilians. Somalis reported 73 dead and more than 200 wounded in the attack. Many of the victims were women and children. Crowds of enraged Somalis responded to this unprovoked sneak attack by setting upon Western journalists, killing four of them. This became the near-exclusive focus of media coverage, ignoring the bloodbath that triggered the popular anger. US military spokesmen presented the attacks as pinpoint strikes that had hit their targets, killing “only” 13 Somalis. This soon proved to a lie. Both the International Red Cross and journalists verified the Somali reports of scores killed and hundreds wounded, simply by checking with local hospitals in the Somali capital. US officials justified the slaughter by claiming that the target was a compound serving as “command and control center” for Mohammed Farah Aidid, the leader of the United Somali Congress, which has demanded an end to the US-United Nations occupation of Somalia. A Pentagon spokesman in Washington described the raid as part of a US effort to “trim General Aidid down to size.” The US military rampage also had the effect of virtually halting the relief operations to feed starving Somalis, which were the ostensible pretext for the US intervention in the first place. Hundreds of tons of food rotted in warehouses around the city, while relief workers fled to avoid the violence. The chaos in Somalia was exacerbated by a falling out among the imperialist powers participating in the intervention. The Italian government, the former colonial power in the country, threatened to withdraw its 2,600 troops, the second largest component, after the UN demanded the removal of General Bruno Loi, the Italian commander, over his alleged refusal to follow US orders. After the scale of the July 12 attack became clear, the Italian government called for a suspension of all combat operations by the “peacekeeping” forces deployed in Somalia. http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/07/09/twih-j09.html#top

          Desapegando II      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Fato é que eu gosto muito de comprar, mas principalmente tenho um apego pela desorganização, se alguma coisa some, por exemplo um brinco, compro um parecido ou igual quando po$$o, por isso tenho 4 lapiseiras iguais: literalmente, venho tentando diminuir o consumo, diga-se de passagem com sucesso = zero.

Algumas coisas parei de consumir por pura falta de dinheiro, porém pouca coisa mudou no meu cérebro, não teve um impacto realmente significativo a falta da grana durante um longuíssimo e tenebroso inferno, tipo não mudei minha mentalidade, só mudei a prática de consumir... pela pobreza, porém, como não mudei, continuo consumindo mentalmente ou supérfluos cabíveis no bolso, pode ser um pastel, não falo isso com orgulho ou vergonha, mas em um mundo virtual onde todo mundo é super bem resolvido em TODAS as áreas é foda ser ou falar que você NÃO mudou com algumas coisas, é esperado quando você chega em uma idade... a maturidade, que você tenha o emprego perfeito, seja fitness, pare de fumar, construa uma família e essas coisas, e basicamente sou a mesma coisa que era, com algumas desvantagens que a depressão deixou.

É um pavor desapegar, tem dias que é tranquilo, tem dias que é uma merda, olho as coisas e nem sei como acumulei algumas coisas.

Ah Cristal, comigo não é assim. que bom, parabéns, conte-me nos comentários.

Ps1: Tenho uma leitora que não sei quem é agora, que diz que todo dia quando chega em casa ela joga alguma coisa fora, acho lindo.

Minha casa (para quem não sabe eu e Marcos juntamos nossos apartamentos) e fica claro que nós dois somos uns incapazes de jogar coisas fora, não estou falando de jornal velho, mas de coisas que foram nos dado, ou de antepassados, praticamente nossa casa é feita de coisas que compramos e herdamos, minha casa (repetitivo essa coisa de minha casa, mas foda-se) parece uma casa dos anos 70/80 porque alguns móveis são de sei lá qual parente morto, meu conjunto de quarto é fato que tem mais de 50 anos, porque era da avó do Marcos mas está em ótimas condições, porque eu compraria algo que está tão "novo"? Fora o que compramos de segunda mão (um bom percentual) ou que achamos no lixo como um banquinho que está na varanda.

Agora venho tentando desesperadamente delimitar essa coisa de consumir e apegar, li um livro ótimo, mas não coloquei nada em prática da Marie Kondo, agora estou tentando fazer ALGUMA COISA, aí hoje eu consegui jogar fora:

Um avental velho e manchado.
Separar uma calça para doação.
Finalizar um perfume.
Pano de prato manchado pro lixo.


Ps: Eu consigo jogar fora lixo literal tá, claro que ando também pensando com certa agonia essa coisa do lixo, plástico e etc, mas não consigo nem o básico (na vida) e quero ir pro avançado, porque só leio coisas legais sobre ser vegano ser zero waste, que fico meio neurótica, mas não de um jeito bom.

Sei que as coisas radicais são mais legais, são mais bacanas de escrever, mas vim aqui para meus 4 leitores dizer que olha, faça as coisas do seu jeito, no seu ritmo e uma hora dá certo.

Eu mesmo não sigo esse conselho é óbvio, mas quem acredita que as pessoas falam o que escrevem?

          RECORD TEMPERATURE READINGS THROUGHOUT LOS ANGELES CAUSED BY ‘FAULTY WEATHER STATIONS,’ METEOROLOGIST SAYS      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

RECORD TEMPERATURE READINGS THROUGHOUT LOS ANGELES CAUSED BY ‘FAULTY WEATHER STATIONS,’ METEOROLOGIST SAYS



Nearly every record-high temperature reported over the last few days in the Los Angeles area are from weather stations “compromised by heat sources and heat sinks,” according to a veteran meteorologist.
“In my opinion, the data from these stations is worthless,” California-based meteorologist Anthony Watts wrote on his blog Watts Up With That.
That’s not to say Los Angeles wasn’t scorching hot. Temperatures in much of greater Los Angeles were in the triple digits, according to the National Weather Service.
On the contrary, what Watts claims is that artificial heat sources and sinks produce localized heat around weather stations, adding the few degrees necessary to qualify as records. In general, cities are warmer than surrounding countryside owing to the urban heat island effect.

For example, downtown Los Angeles reported a daily record high temperature of 108 degrees Fahrenheit on Friday. Watts, however, noted the weather station was on top of a parking garage surrounded by vehicles. The weather station was relocated to the University of Southern California (USC) campus in 1999 where meteorologists said it would be less prone to extreme swings, but Watts said that station’s had problems in the past.
“The ASOS type station used at USC is notorious for producing false record highs where there aren’t any. For example, Honolulu and Tucson,” Watts wrote. “Look at all the service vehicles parked around it. One wonders recent record high that was claimed there is just another result of a vehicle being parked to close to it like the Ice Cream Truck debacle that denied a new all-time record high for Scotland a few days ago.”
U.K. meteorologists recently rejected a record-high temperature reading at Motherwell, Scotland, on June 28 because an ice cream truck had idled nearby with its engine on, possibly contaminating the reading.
Scotland’s record-high reading came amid what some are calling a global heat wave, which has produced record readings across the world. Some media outlets, including The Washington Post, tried to link the heat wave to man-made global warming.
“No single record, in isolation, can be attributed to global warming,” the Post reported, trying to link summer weather to global warming. “But collectively, these heat records are consistent with the kind of extremes we expect to see increase in a warming world.”
Record-high temperatures were also recorded at the Van Nuys Airport, the Burbank Airport and the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA). Watts took issue with all of these record readings. (RELATED: Africa’s Hottest Temperature Ever Recorded Was Probably ‘Influenced By Man-Made Objects’)
“It’s another ASOS station snuggled between an industrial park, runway, road, and taxiway,” Watts wrote of the Van Nuys Airport weather station, which recorded 117 degrees Fahrenheit on Friday.
As for the Burbank Airport, Watts wrote that “the weather station is virtually surrounded by asphalt runways, taxiways, and aircraft parking ramps,” which means the “likelihood for the station to get in the middle of a [400-degree] jetwash is almost a certainty, being so close to taxiways with turns.”
Airports, like cities, tend to run hotter than surrounding areas because of runways, jet wash from airplanes, vehicles exhaust and other non-natural factors that can artificially raise temperatures.
UCLA’s weather station recorded a record 111 degrees Fahrenheit on Friday. However, Watts pointed out the university’s thermometer is one the roof of a building, likely being hit with artificial heat.
“UCLA’s weather station is on the roof of the Math Sciences/Atmospheric Sciences building,” Watts wrote. “Why? there’s no place else to put it. There’s hardly a free and open space left.”
Update: This article has been updated to reflect that the downtown Los Angeles weather station that recorded high temperatures was at USC, not the Department of Water and Power.

A mountain of Trumpian lies and bs in one rally

by digby



The Washington Post decided to take a look at Trump's lies in a single rally. It's astonishing. He's even more pathologically dishonest and ignorant than I would have guessed. And I know very well just what a dumb liar he is.

According to our analysis, the truth took a beating in Montana. From a grand total of 98 factual statements we identified, 76 percent were false, misleading or unsupported by evidence.

Here’s a breakdown: 45 false or mostly false statements, 25 misleading statements and four unsupported claims. We also counted 24 accurate or mostly accurate statements. False or mostly false statements alone accounted for 46 percent of all claims.

A small sample of Trumpian bullshit in one rally:

I’m going to tell NATO, “You got to start paying your bills. The United States is not going to take care of everything.”

Misleading. NATO’s guideline is that defense expenditures should amount to 2 percent of each country’s gross domestic product by 2024. In 2017, the United States and three other countries met that standard, and Poland spent virtually 2 percent. NATO allies have been steadily boosting defense spending since 2014, after Russia annexed Crimea. In any case, these funds would not be going to the United States or even necessarily to NATO; this is money that countries would spend to bolster their own military.
[It's not a fucking protection racket and they don't pay the US!!! It's maddening to hear him parrot this vacuous nonsense over and over again.]

We’re paying for anywhere from 70 to 90 percent to protect Europe, and that’s fine.

Misleading. The United States is the largest contributor to NATO’s organizational expenses, which includes its headquarters in Brussels and subordinate military commands, but it funds only 22 percent of these programs. Separately, the U.S. defense expenditure represents 72 percent of defense spending across NATO. But this reflects what the United States spends on all military programs, not just those related to Europe.

Of course, they kill us on trade. … They make it impossible to do business in Europe, and yet they come in and they sell their Mercedes and their BMWs to us. So we have $151 billion in trade deficits with the E.U., and on top of that, they kill us with NATO.

False. The European Union is the largest goods trade partner for the United States. Trump has a habit of using trade numbers that factor in only goods, not services. The combined trade deficit with the E.U. was $92 billion in 2016. Although the E.U. imposes a 10 percent tariff on U.S. cars, while the U.S. tariff is 2.5 percent for European cars, tariff rates vary by product and in some cases U.S. tariffs are higher.

So we pay 4 percent of a huge GDP, which got a lot bigger since I became your president.

Misleading. The United States spends close to 4 percent of gross domestic product on defense, but GDP growth under Trump has been par for the course. GDP grew 2.3 percent in 2017, Trump’s first year in office. It grew at a faster rate in three of the years Barack Obama was in office and for much of the George W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations.

Germany, which is the biggest country of the E.U., European Union, Germany pays 1 percent.

Mostly accurate. Germany increased its defense spending by 5 percent in 2017, but because the country saw healthy economic growth, defense spending was 1.2 percent of its GDP. German leaders say they plan to reach 1.5 percent by 2024.

And then they go out and make a gas deal, oil and gas, from Russia, where they pay billions and billions of dollars to Russia. Okay, so they want to protect against Russia, and yet they pay billions of dollars to Russia, and we are the schmucks that are paying for the whole thing.

False. Germany in March approved an $11 billion pipeline, Nord Stream 2, to be built by Russian energy giant Gazprom. But the United States is not “paying for the whole thing,” not even by some logic that factors in U.S. spending on NATO. Germany is the second-highest contributor to NATO’s common programs. The United States pays 22 percent of these costs; Germany pays 15 percent.

Since I came, which is a year and a half, almost $33 billion more is projected to be paid by those NATO nations, but it’s not enough.

Misleading. NATO member nations pledged to end defense cuts and began to ramp up spending in 2014, years before Trump took office.

That's just the lies and ignorant nonsense he spews about NATO and Europe which is relevant to the summit. They counted

Pretty Bookish

About Kristina Molnar


Hello fellow book nerds!

I like a lot of books. No, seriously, like a lot of books. If you’re looking at this shop, I’m guessing you do to.

Cool. Let’s be friends.

Now that we’re friends, I should probably tell you a little more about myself and how Pretty Bookish came to be. My name is Kristina and I’ve been bookish for as long as I can remember. The bigger the pile of books, the better. Libraries and bookstores are my happy places. If I could go back in time (where’s the TARDIS when you need it?) and tell the younger version of myself about e-readers, it would have blown my mind. I would also probably be mad at my future self for “destroying” books.

Let me explain.

Pretty Bookish only repurposes books that are old, damaged, unreadable, and unwanted. If books that are still in good condition come into my possession, I donate them so that they can continue to be enjoyed.

In 2015 I formed Pretty Bookish. It all started with a box of old books. The idea of throwing out these books that couldn’t even be donated made me sad, so a new idea was born. I decided to give these discarded books a new life by turning them into pretty handmade products so that these pages can continue to be adored by readers. Sounds like a win-win to me!

When I’m not being bookish, you can find me hanging out with my husband and two adorable and hilarious sons. I’m learning to embrace being a hockey mom and trying not to become a cat lady. I work as a virtual assistant, dabble in photography, drink too much chai tea, and make lots of bad puns, always with a cat (or 2) by my side.

I love to make stuff and am forever grateful whenever someone likes my work enough to compliment or purchase it. I love the opportunity to nerd out with other book lovers, so let's chat!

Interview

1) Can you tell our readers a bit about yourself?

Hello! My name is Kristina and I am the creator of Pretty Bookish. I live in Toledo, Ohio with my husband and our 3 boys. After leaving the criminal justice field, where I was working as a victim advocate, I began to do freelance work for authors and entrepreneurs. I started experimenting with crafting with books in 2015. With encouragement from friends and family, I then opened Pretty Bookish. I love reading, writing, photography, and having silly dance parties with my kiddos.


2) What’s the inspiration behind your work?

The biggest inspiration behind my work is the love of books. Every book lover has had at least one book that left a lasting impression on their life. I love connecting with other readers and hearing about what book that was for them. It brings me joy to be able to give them a piece of that story to carry with them.


3) Where did you learn how to make jewelry?

I’m self-taught through a lot of trial and error. I am a bit of a perfectionist, so I’m always tweaking and adjusting things to improve the product line.


4) What does your workplace look like?

I have a home office I can escape to when inspiration strikes. The creative life is not always the neatest, so I would describe my workspace as an organized mess. It’s my happy place where I go to find inspiration and make my goals a reality. Working from home can have its drawbacks, but I do love that my kids can come in and see me at work, and even be involved sometimes.


5) You make bookish items, where does your love for books come from?

I have always loved books! My parents and grandparents have always encouraged and supported my love of books. During the summer, as a child, I would check out as many library books as I could carry and spend all day outside reading. That is still one of my all-time favorite activities.


6) Can you tell a bit more about how you started your store?

Pretty Bookish started with a box of old books. The idea of throwing out these books that couldn’t even be donated made me sad, so a new idea was born. I decided to give these discarded books a new life by turning them into pretty handmade products so that these pages can continue to be adored by readers.


7) You repurpose books that are old, damaged, unreadable and unwanted. How did you come up with this?

Like most other books lovers, I don’t like the idea of simply throwing out a book. I started crafting with old and damaged books to find a better option. While it's unfortunate that not every book can be saved, I love being able to save pieces of these books for others to carry with them and continue to love.


8) Materials are important to you, how do you select them and where do you find them?

Sourcing books is a lot of fun for me. I look through thrift stores, used bookstores, and library sales. I sometimes accept book donations. After doing this for a few years, people now know who to call first when they’re getting rid of books.

I try to keep the designs fresh, so I’m always on the lookout for new materials to experiment with. Supporting other small businesses is also important to me.


9) What do you like the most about having your own shop?

Being my own boss is amazing! With 3 kids, being able to make my own schedule is everything to me.


10) What are your plans for the future?

The possibilities are endless! I would like to continue growing the Pretty Bookish brand. I’m also planning on growing my freelance business and looking to take on more clients in the future.

We are a non-governmental, non-religious, non-political Ethiopian online multimedia entertainment website based in Germany, Europe. 

PlanetEthiopia.com is a non-governmental, non-religious, non-political and yet non-profit making Ethiopian popular videos, music, and multimedia entertainment website, founded in February 2008 to reach all Ethiopians and Ethiopia friends worldwide who miss being in Ethiopia.

Our purposely informal, not modern, typical Ethiopian website design has been favored as the best comforting entertainment website design by many Ethiopian visitors worldwide. Every content of design on our website, including the Ethiopian made players, is carefully studied and tested, so it was not a coincidental creation. That's why it got a very positive psychological impact for homesick diaspora Ethiopians looking for a substitute to comfort their yearning. 

Many of our visitors frequently ask regarding our audio music collections:

Why do we not add every song? The answer is simple:

PlanetEthiopia.com does not do mass uploads because we value Ethiopian art, whether it is music or film, of its quality but not of its quantity, so we carefully review and select the medias before we post them.

Why we give away the sophisticatedly created virtual gifts instead of selling them?

          China: One Year On      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

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

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

The Realization That It’s For Real

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

Scope of the Impact

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

Recent Moves Sow Even Further Confusion

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

Alternative Markets Pop, But Now Are Also Clamping Down

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

Will the China Market Ultimately Disappear?

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

Glimmers of Hope

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

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

Se você esteve online nas últimas 72 horas, provavelmente se deparou com o rosto acima no Instagram ou nos destaques da Netflix. Ele pertence à Hannah Gadsby, comediante australiana, 40 anos. Formada em história da arte. E lésbica. E brava. Não sem motivo: Hannah sabe o preço de ser “diferente” e em seu novo show, o recém-lançado Nanette, decidiu parar de fazer piada disso.

Apesar de soar muito, muito engraçada, sua missão é deixar o público desconfortável - sobretudo os homens-padrão - ao contar histórias de abuso moral, físico e intelectual sofridas por ela e outras mulheres. É para os homens que Hannah direciona seu discurso final. “Eu não os odeio, de forma alguma. Mas tenho medo de ficar em uma sala repleta deles”, diz. “Porque, no fim das contas, é tudo sobre sua reputação. Pablo Picasso [que a comediante chama de misógino e critica por ter tido um caso com uma jovem de 17 anos], Harvey Weinstein [produtor acusado de abuso por dezenas de atrizes de Hollywood], Bill Cosby [mais de 35 denúncias de estupro], Woody Allen [que nega ter molestado sua filha adotiva], Roman Polanski [condenado por estupro em 1977]... Esses homens não são exceção. Eles controlam nossas histórias e, no entanto, têm uma conexão decrescente com sua própria humanidade. E não nos importamos, desde que consigam manter sua preciosa reputação."

Pronto. Hannah conseguiu me deixar desconfortável. Nas horas seguintes eu só falava dela e tentava entender o que aquela avalanche tinha causado em mim. Foi só assistindo outra estreia, essa disponível no Net Now, o documentário Chega de Fiu Fiu, sobre situações cotidianas de assédio, que consegui entender. É urgente que a noção de masculinidade atual e o poder histórico e cultural implícito aos homens seja repensada. “Eles precisam debater e se organizar para desconstruir essa masculinidade”, diz, no filme, Djamila Ribeiro, filósofa e ativista. “Isso divide as feministas, pois, com o tempo usado para discutir masculinidade, poderíamos estar discutindo problemas das mulheres. Mas essa masculinidade, do jeito que está posta, nos afeta diretamente.” Fica realmente difícil avançar no tão falado (e importante) empoderamento feminino em um mundo dominado por um machismo intrínseco.

“Essa questão se tornou ainda mais forte para mim agora, que vou ser mãe de um menininho”, afirma Nana Queiroz, jornalista, criadoras da revista Azmina, uma das principais vozes de feminismo no Brasil (e minha colega querida de faculdade!). Grávida de sete meses, Nana acredita que a educação é a única maneira de combater comportamentos inadequados que os homens aprendem. “Chegamos a um ponto em que precisamos falar sobre isso. Meu filho, por exemplo, herdou roupas cor-de-rosa. Qual o problema se o confundirem com uma menina? Não há demérito nenhum nisso nem em ter atitudes consideradas femininas. Ser sensível é bonito.” Ô! Eu mesma tenho um grande amigo que costuma contar que deixa que as sobrinhas pequenas o maquiem, exatamente para romper com os estereótipos de gênero da garota princesa e do moleque corajoso. Mas, ao mesmo tempo, ele, meu amigo, aos 30 e poucos anos, não se permite muito sofrer, chorar e demonstrar fraqueza (está aí a forma com que o machismo afeta os próprios homens).

Frame de &quot;Chega de fiu fiu&quot; (Foto: Reprodução)

 

É tanta complexidade envolvida… Ainda no documentário Chega de Fiu Fiu, Jules de Faria, criadora da campanha homônima (e outra amiga querida!), lembra que o machismo não está restrito a bandidos-maus-encapuzados-escondidos. “Ele está nos nos nossos homens, nos homens da nossa sociedade, o que compreendi vendo chefes brilhantes e amigos inteligentes, por exemplo, culpabilizando vítimas de assédio em suas redes sociais.” Está ainda no marido da minha amiga que “ajuda” em casa, no pai de outra grande amiga que nega pensão - e principalmente afeto - aos filhos, no meu pai, que deixava meus irmãos viajarem com as namoradas e eu e minha irmã não, no leitor que comentou que eu era frígida quando escrevi um texto sobre a objetificação das mulheres na moda, no professor que quase me convenceu que matemática não era para meninas, na balada, nas relações, no Uber, na academia, no mar... É, no mar.

Hoje mesmo a jornalista Natália Leão (yes, só tenho amiga talentosa e querida) escreveu sobre como se sentia ao entrar no mar para surfar. “Quando olho para essa foto [acima!] e vejo todas essas cabecinhas masculinas lá no fundo, me lembro de todo medo e desconforto que já senti sendo a única mulher dentro do mar. De quantas vezes já ouvi desaforo de ‘machão’ surfista, que era melhor ficar tomando sol, quantas perguntas estúpidas já ouvi...". Qualquer semelhança com o receio de Hannah Gadsby na sala cheia de homens não é mera coincidência. Você, seja qual for seu gênero, vai curtir assistí-la. O debate é longo. Vamos começar a ampliá-lo então?

          Samsung’s Gear S4 smartwatch to ditch S Voice in favor of Bixby      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Modest upgrades are the name of the game for Samsung in 2018. After failing to make waves with the Galaxy S9 and S9+ earlier this year, the South Korean company is expected to launch an equally unexciting Galaxy Note 9 in August, which will likely be accompanied by a new smartwatch. Although Samsung may eschew naming conventions and call its new watch the Galaxy Watch (instead of the Gear S4), that won't be the only change. SamMobile reports that Bixby will replace S Voice in this year's smartwatch offering from Samsung. Considering how hard Samsung has been pushing its new virtual assistant since it launched last year, this shouldn't come as much of a surprise, but it will be a welcome upgrade over the underwhelming S Voice. SamMobile also claims that Samsung will not add a third button for quick access to Bixby, as it has done on its latest smartphone models. In order to bring up Bixby, you will be able to use the home button on the Galaxy Watch, as well as by saying "Hi Bixby" in order to wake the watch up and begin using voice commands. For those of you who weren't impressed by the first incarnation of Bixby, SamMobile also notes that Bixby 2.0 should make its debut alongside the Galaxy Note 9 and Gear S4/Galaxy Watch during Samsung's presentation in New York next month. The updated version of the virtual assistant will feature improved natural language processes, enhanced noise resistance, and quicker response times. Bixby 2.0 should ship with the Galaxy Watch. Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Watch at its next Unpacked event in NYC on August 9th. We'll have all the news for you as it happens when the event kicks off early next month.

          A flood of hate mail might seem like the first sign of a startup's demise — but successful founders say customers' fury can be a good thing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Sam Yagan

  • SparkNotes, the book-summary site, is one example of a startup that was so popular in its early days that it couldn't keep up with customer demand.
  • Other examples include GOAT, the world's largest resale marketplace for high-end sneakers, and VIPKid, a Chinese education startup. 
  • At least one entrepreneur says this is the sign that a company has achieved product-market fit.


Of the many reasons startups fail, being too popular isn't the first that comes to mind.

And yet that's exactly what (almost) happened to a series of now-successful companies.

Take book-summary sites SparkNotes, for example. Sam Yagan was a Harvard undergrad when he cofounded the company along with his roommate; the site went live the spring of their senior year.

As Yagan told Business Insider's Richard Feloni on an episode of the podcast "Success! How I Did It," the immediate response was that "people were pissed." Specifically, because the site didn't have the book they needed yet.

"That's the best kind of hate mail to get, is we need more product," Yagan said. That summer, they hired some editors to put up more SparkNotes, "and the rest is history."

Eddy Lu had a similar experience when he cofounded GOAT, which is now the world's largest resale marketplace for high-end sneakers.

On Black Friday 2015, GOAT blew up and couldn't keep up with customer demand; thousands of orders were left unfilled.

As Lu told Feloni on another episode of the podcast, "We responded to every single customer-service message. I think there were about 4,500 that day. But at that point it was better to be hated than unknown."

Untenable customer demand can be a sign of product-market fit

Unprecedented customer demand nearly put VIPKid out of business. As Business Insider's Harrison Jacobs reported, the Chinese education startup connects native English-speaking teachers with young Chinese students for virtual English lessons.

While the company was in its pilot stage in 2014, a friend of cofounder Cindy Mi tried out the service and posted about it on Weibo (China's version of Twitter).

Within a day, Jacobs reported, the company was receiving calls and messages from people who wanted to try the service for themselves. People started to get angry because the company wasn't able to respond to all their requests.

Mi's team ultimately resolved the problem by putting out a statement that read: "Give us a couple of months and, when we're ready, we'll come back to you."

Mi told Jacobs that the message conveyed to customers that the company was professional instead of sleazy and wasn't simply trying to get money out of them before the product was ready.

This is a phenomenon that Y Combinator CEO Michael Seibel has seen before — and he thinks it's a good thing. In an "Ask me Anything" interview, Seibel said, "My definition of product-market fit is: You are drowning in demand — your product is being used by so many customers that you cannot handle all the new people knocking at your door!"

Seibel acknowledged that not every successful company achieved this milestone. And yet he said, "I don't understand how you can have product-market fit and not a lot of people wanting your product. The two go hand-in-hand."

This podcast is unconscionably late once more and again I am going to plead that there is a perfectly good reason for this.  Today has been taken up with constant recording here at Toad Hall, and I myself have been finishing the video for the Honeytrap Toad Session which finally, finally will be making an appearance this time next week.  My job is virtually finished, and it's messy, but it will be a corker.

This podcast has no real theme, but I did let Neil choose most of the songs, so that gives the podcast something of a character of its own.  I did make him be on a podcast with a Noah & the Whale song on it though.  Ha haaa!  That'll teach the trendy little bastard!

          No se han recibido impugnaciones de elección presidencial: INE      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

La consejera del Instituto Nacional Electoral (INE), Pamela San Martín, informó que, hasta este martes, no se ha presentado ninguna impugnación de la elección presidencial y solamente algunos partidos han presentado recursos sobre cómputos en algunas casillas.

"El día domingo que el secretario Ejecutivo presenta el informe sobre los cómputos distritales de la Elección Presidencial, ahí cualquier impugnación que se hiciera a los cómputos, en global, o sea impugnación a la elección como tal el plazo empieza a contar a partir del día domingo y no tenemos impugnaciones hasta este momento presentadas en torno a esto (Elección Presidencial), sí se han presentado diversas impugnaciones sobre cómputos en casillas", explicó la consejera.

En entrevista, Pamela San Martín, dijo que los plazos para impugnar la elección presidencial ya vencieron este lunes por la noche, aunque todavía se puede seguir impugnando algunos cómputos, no de la elección Presidencial, pero sí de los comicios a diputados y senadores.

"Todavía se puede seguir impugnando algunos de los cómputos, no de Presidencia, sino de diputados o senadores, esto es algo que se va a ir actualizando día con día hasta venzan los plazos completamente, que será a más tardar el próximo jueves", agregó.

Dijo que no se puede adelantar la posibilidad de entregar la constancia de mayoría al virtual presidente electo, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, pues el Tribunal Electoral del Poder Judicial de la Federación (TEPJF), tiene que esperar el proceso de fiscalización de la elección y eso será hasta el próximo 6 de agosto en el Consejo General del INE.

"El 6 de agosto es cuando tenemos programado que se resuelva en Consejo General la fiscalización y pasaría inmediatamente al Tribunal Electoral, las consecuencias de la fiscalización no las determina el Consejo General un rebase de topes, ingresos de procedencia indebida, esto se analiza en el Consejo y la consecuencia que pueda tener o no sobre la validez de una elección eso le corresponde determinarlo al Tribunal Electoral", determinó Pamela San Martín.

          Reunión entre EPN y Pompeo, sin AMLO: Presidencia      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

El próximo viernes el presidente Enrique Peña Nieto se reunirá con el secretario de Estado estadounidense, Michael Richard Pompeo, sin la presencia del virtual presidente electo, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, aseguró Eduardo Sánchez Hernández, vocero de la presidencia de la República.

"Se reunirán este viernes, no se prevé que haya alguien más del gobierno de la República acompañando al presidente", afirmó Eduardo Sánchez.

En conferencia de prensa en donde dieron a conocer los avances que ha tenido en esta administración el Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS), Sánchez Hernández comentó que a la fecha no ha llegado ninguna solicitud por parte del equipo de AMLO para hablar sobre la transición del gobierno.

"Los inicios formales de los equipos de transición se llevarán a cabo una vez que se dé la calificación por parte del Tribunal Federal Electoral. Será hasta entonces cuando se designarán los participantes de estos equipos de transición y se llevarán a cabo las reuniones formales".

Sobre las declaraciones de Donald Trump, presidente de Estados Unidos, el vocero del gobierno federal dijo que Enrique Peña Nieto ha dado la instrucción de proteger a los connacionales. "Debemos proteger a nuestros conciudadanos en los Estados Unidos contra todo aquello que no está conforme a los derechos humanos".

Mencionó que a fin de proteger a los mexicanos que viven en el país vecino, la Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores (SRE) realiza un esfuerzo importante por difundir los servicios de asistencia y protección a los mexicanos a través de la red consular más grande del mundo, la cual consta de 50 consulados.

Al arrancar el próximo gobierno, la Comisión Nacional de Seguridad (CNS) desaparecerá y sus atribuciones pasarán a la Secretaría de Seguridad Pública (SSP), adelantó Alfonso Durazo, quien sería el próximo titular de esa dependencia en el gobierno de Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

"Las atribuciones de Gobernación en materia de seguridad pasarán a la Secretaría de Seguridad Pública. La Comisión Nacional de Seguridad, todas sus atribuciones, pasarán a la SSP y, obviamente, la Comisión como tal desaparecerá", expuso.

Tras una reunión con Andrés Manuel López Obrador, virtual presidente electo, Durazo explicó que la SSP sí conservará al Consejo Nacional de Seguridad Pública, que es una instancia para la construcción de consensos con los gobernadores.

También, explicó que los consejeros en materia de seguridad evalúan la eliminación de la prueba de polígrafo para las evaluaciones y controles de confianza.

Ebrard Casaubón señaló que tomarán algunas medidas de seguridad, "pero nada extraordinario".

Sobre el primer encuentro de López Obrador con un alto funcionario del gobierno de Estados Unidos, Ebrard dijo que se trata de un saludo, una conversación, un inicio, como un primer acercamiento, porque no es una reunión oficial.

A pregunta expresa de El Universal si en esta reunión podrían asistir Jared Kushner, yerno y asesor del presidente Estados Unidos Donald Trump, Ebrard dijo que no ha sido comunicado de esa posibilidad.

Yes, we’re back and this time we’ve relaxed a little.  There’s a bit less cussing and ranting in this podcast than usual - in fact virtually no ranting at all, which is probably as much of a surprise to me as it is to you.

I’m looking at late evening music this week because Mrs. Toad and I were recently talking about the Chillout craze which kicked off about six or seven years ago. It descended into electronic muzak unfortunately, but there were some good things in there at the beginning, so I thought I’d have a look at it.  I’ve thrown in some stuff I find nice and eveningy and relaxing as well just to stop it becoming too tedious.

          Happy Dab Day: Why 7/10 is a Stoner Holiday      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Josh Jardine

Today is July 10. It’s a special day for those of you who enjoy concentrates and extracts, although if you do enough dabs, any day can be a special day. Numerically speaking, today is 7/10. Virtually all dispensaries will have sales on numerous forms of dabs, so stock up, and give thanks for this "high holy day" in remembrance of the late great Doctor Leopold von Dabowitz, born on July 10, 1939.

Dr. von Dabowitz was the first stoner who, after finishing a bowl of flower, asked himself, “Is that all there is? Is there not a way I can get higher?” And in that moment, it dawned on him that yes, certainly there must be, and so the good doctor set out to find out.

Leopold began with the notion that solvents could be utilized to strip the THC and terpenes from the cannabis plant and concentrate them. His first attempts left something to be desired, as he used fully leaded gasoline in his first runs. While this resulted in the popular “diesel” taste sought after in today’s marketplace, he neglected to fully purge his product. As such, during his first hit, he burned off his eyebrows and hair in a fireball. Neither ever grew back, gaining him the derisive nickname “Egghead,” which is why we call smart people that same thing to this day.

He moved into kerosene, motor oil, rubbing alcohol, paint stripper, and radiator fluid, with each subsequent explosion resulting in the loss of his nose, ears, and lips. “Maybe you should just try agitating the bud in ice water and collecting the accumulated THC crystal,” suggested his wife, who like all women, was far smarter than her husband. “Nurmer!” he shouted, which is lipless for “Never!”

Leopold upgraded to butane, which produced a cleaner, clearer finished product, although his friends pointed out that a box of lighters from the Dollar Store didn't make for the best butane available, and was resulting in a nasty, black, tar-like finished product, and perhaps he shouldn’t be producing his concentrate in his wife’s dog grooming studio, as nearly half the weight of his dabs consisted of a mixture of stray Labradoodle and German Shepherd fur. “That stuff is nasty, broheim—what about using a mixture of heat and pressure to obtain a solvent-free product?” asked his friends. “Ruck lew,” Leopold cursed at them between coughing fits from smoking his OG Chihuahua Kush.

Von Dabowitz died in an explosion while producing a full nug run. Being high AF, he had decided to address his munchies by making s'mores in his lab. “I can just make you a sandwich,” his wife said nervously. “I’m not sure you want to have an open flame in a room filled with butane fumes.” “Nit gill re line [It will be fine]," he replied, just before a 30-foot fireball consumed him.

So this 7/10, celebrate this pioneer of pot by heading to your local dispensary, and dabbing while remembering his amazing work that—wait, what? Are we sure?

I’ve just been informed that the real meaning of 710 is that it spells “OIL” when that number is turned upside down. Huh. Not sure where I got that other stuff. Must be the dabs.

Check your social media feeds or resources such as Leafly and Weedmaps to find Dab Day deals near you. Happy 710 everyone!

Saturday 30th June and the sun is blasting down again. This is the Scottish Summer we never get, the one we'll be talking about like we talk about that one in 1976. And the wildlife seem to know it was coming, they have been abundant. I have been neglecting work in favour of life. It is going really well! Smiley face emoji.


The new Falko's is shaping up and is going to be something similar to the old Falko's. (Meanwhile Falko's in Haddington seems to be benefiting from their new venue so no skin off their nose). The new baker/deli is called goose on the green and last I spoke to the folk working there they were planning to be open for the Open. (Any day now - 12th July.)


Of course not everywhere is open for the Open
This place is closed for the Open


The REDS are back.


I think these were the first Red Admirals of the year. Very jolly to have them back. Despite their funny little faces I have a real warm spot for RAs in my heart as after August last year they were nearly the only thing around giving me a butterfly hit when everything else had gone to ground. I could go along to the botanics where they huddled in large numbers on certain flowers and get a fix of butteryness to keep me going through the autumn. And could be seen on warm days even in early November in East Lothian. Nationally they had an excellent year in 2017.


Good to see old pals the Burnet moths about too. They are striking in their black capes with scarlet spots and regulars on the John Muir Way as we run along the golf course to Aberlady. Usually 5 spot here and then over the bridge more often 6 spot. Slightly fewer than I expected by the golf course this year but larger numbers on the coast.



I saw Mary's brain ticking over as she hauled a chunk of Galium aparine out the field with an idea of sharing it with me. Also known as cleavers, (I like that!) bort, bedstraw, goosegrass, catchweed, stickybud, robin-run-the-hedge, grip grass, stickeljack and STICKYWILLY. Time to fly as hoka say. 



If life is getting too easy try taking a decent photo of one of the drab browns - a Meadow Brown (above) or Ringlet (below) Far more tricky to get a spectacular photo of those than a naturally spectacular Fritillary. They have both been superabundant this summer particularly the latter. 


The Ringlet is Kinglet. 

Small heath

dgf

We didn't hang about for any time at Marl Loch. I knew there was a good chance the Dark green fritillaries would be out and knew the limit of Mary's patience vs the skittish-ness of the DGFs. Tricky combo that could easily end in (my) tears. 

They are right up there in the all-time top 5 beauties category and when freshly out in bright sunshine are just dazzling. There were more about than I have ever seen at Aberlady but they were not landing very often and then only for very little time before lifting off and soaring a football field on the breeze and forget it. Just got the one pic above before I thought I'd pushed my luck far enough and should check in with the boss.




She was on the beach by the time I caught up. Also on the beach was a swathe of little pink purple flowers that appear at this time between the dunes and high tide line and attract wayward butterflies. First a Small Tort, but then as I moved about to get the right angle on that, I noticed a Dark Green, AND it was busily nectaring and hadn't noticed me holding my breath and creeping up. I was so excited I nearly blew it and had to have strong words about being calm and getting the shot. I had enough time to shoot a wee bit of pretty bad 4K video but it was sufficient to extract a wings up frame (below) which is moderately rare as they like to sit with their wings firmly down and out.






That put me in a splendid mood as did the run along one of the best beaches in Scotland that was almost deserted because it is 1.5 miles from the car park. Brilliant. Then around Gullane Point and the place was surprisingly busy with common blues, burnets and fritillaries. Virtually none were landing and posing for the camera which was a tad frustrating. But it was fun seeing them all flying about in perfect weather for admiring the surroundings; and Mary seemed happy to stand around also taking pics of the landscape and flowers.

frit and blue, neither resting

5 spot?

          NFL Players Union Files Grievance Over League's New National Anthem Policy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The NFL had intended for its rule to achieve a resolution. For more than a year , controversy had eddied endlessly around players' decisions to kneel during the national anthem. And the league thought a policy requiring players to stand for the anthem if they were on the field — but also allowing them to stay off the field and out of sight — would end an uncomfortable conversation that had reached even the White House. But if it was resolution the league was seeking, the move failed. The NFL Players Association announced Tuesday that it has filed a grievance against the league "on behalf of all players." "The union's claim is that this new policy, imposed by the NFL's governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights," the group explained in a statement . Virtually from the moment the new rule was rolled out in May, the NFLPA has made its displeasure clear, saying NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

When Politics Trumps Economics

Stephen S. Roach




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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          NFL Players Union Files Grievance Over League's New National Anthem Policy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The NFL had intended for its rule to achieve a resolution. For more than a year , controversy had eddied endlessly around players' decisions to kneel during the national anthem. And the league thought a policy requiring players to stand for the anthem if they were on the field — but also allowing them to stay off the field and out of sight — would end an uncomfortable conversation that had reached even the White House. But if it was resolution the league was seeking, the move failed. The NFL Players Association announced Tuesday that it has filed a grievance against the league "on behalf of all players." "The union's claim is that this new policy, imposed by the NFL's governing body without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on player rights," the group explained in a statement . Virtually from the moment the new rule was rolled out in May, the NFLPA has made its displeasure clear, saying NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell

If and when you might manage to plug the millions and millions of dollars pumped into the local economy every year, supposedly to "help homeless" people, but virtually never getting to *their* pockets, who will actually benefit? Or suffer that last loss?

Heck, you people are never satisfied. First it was that you didn't want to have to see 'em around town. So the city gets 'em rounded up, sending them to a compound nestled in the industrial district and drives herds of 'em way over by the bay where locals hardly go... but none of it turns out to be good enough for the likes of you.

What's your *real* agenda?

RabbitMQ简介

在介绍RabbitMQ之前实现要介绍一下MQ,MQ是什么?

MQ全称是Message Queue,可以理解为消息队列的意思,简单来说就是消息以管道的方式进行传递。

RabbitMQ是一个实现了AMQP(Advanced Message Queuing Protocol)高级消息队列协议的消息队列服务,用Erlang语言的。

使用场景

在我们秒杀抢购商品的时候,系统会提醒我们稍等排队中,而不是像几年前一样页面卡死或报错给用户。

像这种排队结算就用到了消息队列机制,放入通道里面一个一个结算处理,而不是某个时间断突然涌入大批量的查询新增把数据库给搞宕机,所以RabbitMQ本质上起到的作用就是削峰填谷,为业务保驾护航。

为什么选择RabbitMQ

现在的市面上有很多MQ可以选择,比如ActiveMQ、ZeroMQ、Appche Qpid,那问题来了为什么要选择RabbitMQ?

  1. 除了Qpid,RabbitMQ是唯一一个实现了AMQP标准的消息服务器;
  2. 可靠性,RabbitMQ的持久化支持,保证了消息的稳定性;
  3. 高并发,RabbitMQ使用了Erlang开发语言,Erlang是为电话交换机开发的语言,天生自带高并发光环,和高可用特性;
  4. 集群部署简单,正是应为Erlang使得RabbitMQ集群部署变的超级简单;
  5. 社区活跃度高,根据网上资料来看,RabbitMQ也是首选;

工作机制

生产者、消费者和代理

在了解消息通讯之前首先要了解3个概念:生产者、消费者和代理。

生产者:消息的创建者,负责创建和推送数据到消息服务器;

消费者:消息的接收方,用于处理数据和确认消息;

代理:就是RabbitMQ本身,用于扮演“快递”的角色,本身不生产消息,只是扮演“快递”的角色。

消息发送原理

首先你必须连接到Rabbit才能发布和消费消息,那怎么连接和发送消息的呢?

你的应用程序和Rabbit Server之间会创建一个TCP连接,一旦TCP打开,并通过了认证,认证就是你试图连接Rabbit之前发送的Rabbit服务器连接信息和用户名和密码,有点像程序连接数据库,使用Java有两种连接认证的方式,后面代码会详细介绍,一旦认证通过你的应用程序和Rabbit就创建了一条AMQP信道(Channel)。

信道是创建在“真实”TCP上的虚拟连接,AMQP命令都是通过信道发送出去的,每个信道都会有一个唯一的ID,不论是发布消息,订阅队列或者介绍消息都是通过信道完成的。

为什么不通过TCP直接发送命令?

对于操作系统来说创建和销毁TCP会话是非常昂贵的开销,假设高峰期每秒有成千上万条连接,每个连接都要创建一条TCP会话,这就造成了TCP连接的巨大浪费,而且操作系统每秒能创建的TCP也是有限的,因此很快就会遇到系统瓶颈。

如果我们每个请求都使用一条TCP连接,既满足了性能的需要,又能确保每个连接的私密性,这就是引入信道概念的原因。

你必须知道的Rabbit

想要真正的了解Rabbit有些名词是你必须知道的。

包括:ConnectionFactory(连接管理器)、Channel(信道)、Exchange(交换器)、Queue(队列)、RoutingKey(路由键)、BindingKey(绑定键)。

ConnectionFactory(连接管理器):应用程序与Rabbit之间建立连接的管理器,程序代码中使用;

Channel(信道):消息推送使用的通道;

Exchange(交换器):用于接受、分配消息;

Queue(队列):用于存储生产者的消息;

RoutingKey(路由键):用于把生成者的数据分配到交换器上;

BindingKey(绑定键):用于把交换器的消息绑定到队列上;

看到上面的解释,最难理解的路由键和绑定键了,那么他们具体怎么发挥作用的,请看下图:

image

关于更多交换器的信息,我们在后面再讲。

消息持久化

Rabbit队列和交换器有一个不可告人的秘密,就是默认情况下重启服务器会导致消息丢失,那么怎么保证Rabbit在重启的时候不丢失呢?答案就是消息持久化。

当你把消息发送到Rabbit服务器的时候,你需要选择你是否要进行持久化,但这并不能保证Rabbit能从崩溃中恢复,想要Rabbit消息能恢复必须满足3个条件:

  1. 投递消息的时候durable设置为true,消息持久化;

  2. 消息已经到达持久化交换器上;

  3. 消息已经到达持久化的队列;

持久化工作原理

Rabbit会将你的持久化消息写入磁盘上的持久化日志文件,等消息被消费之后,Rabbit会把这条消息标识为等待垃圾回收。

持久化的缺点

消息持久化的优点显而易见,但缺点也很明显,那就是性能,因为要写入硬盘要比写入内存性能较低很多,从而降低了服务器的吞吐量,尽管使用SSD硬盘可以使事情得到缓解,但他仍然吸干了Rabbit的性能,当消息成千上万条要写入磁盘的时候,性能是很低的。

所以使用者要根据自己的情况,选择适合自己的方式。

虚拟主机

每个Rabbit都能创建很多vhost,我们称之为虚拟主机,每个虚拟主机其实都是mini版的RabbitMQ,拥有自己的队列,交换器和绑定,拥有自己的权限机制。

环境搭建

前文我们已经介绍了Ubuntu搭建RabbitMQ的步骤:
