Scienziati che credono nel paranormale esistono e non per questo il loro lavoro è meno degno di nota dei più razionalisti tra gli studiosi. Se in Italia si contrapponevano l’atea Margherita Hack e il religioso Antonio Zichichi, ora e nel passato, ci sono stati tanti scienziati affascinati e influenzati dal paranormale. Da Carl Gustav Jung a Wolfgang Pauli, ecco quali sono questi studiosi attivi negli studi dell’irrazionale.

The Aggressive Conservative Investor (Martin Whitman and Martin Shubik)

When I first started reading Martin Whitman’s exhortations about the importance and neglect of assets as a tool of valuation I thought to myself, “But everyone knows that assets are an important tool. Is this really still relevant?”

Then I looked at the front page of Seeking Alpha and saw articles about earnings, about commodities (definitely commodities), and about currencies. Nothing about neglected assets and not a lot about security. It occurred to me that even though Whitman’s been pointing out the excessive primacy of the income statement for around three decades, some things never change. And really, that makes sense in light of Whitman’s own writing.

More than anything else, Whitman emphasizes perspective. As he points out, a lot of people are in the market for a lot of different reasons and investors have to appreciate this when they try to gauge the actions of the market and its participants. Activists have different guidelines for what constitutes a suitable investment than do purely passive investors and short-term traders have a lot more interest in volatility than long-term investors. That isn’t rocket science, but its a simple and powerful observation that a lot of people overlook when speaking of The Market and its irrationality. You see people characterize every transaction in the market as having a winner and a loser, but really the definition of winner and loser depends a great deal on perspective (Richard Bookstaber also sort of gets at this in A Demon of Our Own Design). For those with a long-term perspective, Whitman has a lot to add.

Perspective also applies to financial statements. More so than most books on investment, The Aggressive Conservative Investor spends a fair amount of space digging into the subject of accounting and accounting presentation. Again, it’s not exactly news that there are gaps in GAAP, but few books devote as much effort to getting it its core assumptions, uses, and limitations. I think this is one of its most unique and appealing aspects.

I was also struck by the simplicity of his investment approach. The financial integrity approach (re-dubbed “safe and cheap” in his new introduction) has four guidelines:

1. Strong financial position
2. Honest management and control groups
3. Reasonable amount of information available
4. A price below estimated net asset value

Simple, but effective: Third Avenue had the best mutual fund record in its class over the past 20 years with a 12.84% annual return. Granted, Whitman seems to do a lot of his fishing overseas these days, but methods could probably be applied with a fair amount of success within the US market by investors who don’t have the same size constraints as a mutual fund the size of the Third Avenue Value Fund. I’ve heard the style he advocates here referred to as the “good enough” mentality and that’s fitting.

As an amusing side note, Whitman seems to enjoy emphasizing his disagreements with and improvements on the methods of Graham and Dodd. Interviews and online reviews of his other work suggest that’s a constant theme. He also has a love of inventing new acronyms that do little or nothing to clarify his meaning. These quirks, along with his occasionally long-winded writing, detract a bit from the book overall but they don’t invalidate or obscure his points.

This book makes it onto Seth Klarman’s recommended reading list (ironically, the writer at this site hasn’t read it) and with good reason. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone with an interest in value investing (and hey, didn't you see the recommendation from one sentence ago?).

          Mediacurrent: Break it Down For Me, Shrop: Tackling Drupal Security Update SA-CORE-2018-005      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Security maintenance — and the ability to apply security updates quickly — is part and parcel to open source project success. 

Updating is typically done as part of the normal software release cycle, however, there are times when a security advisory needs to be released ASAP. A strong incident response plan builds a first defense line to mitigate and patch vulnerabilities. 

But what does a successful security response look like in action?

On the heels of a recent Drupal security update on August 1, 2018, Mediacurrent’s Senior Project Manager Christine Flynn had the same question. To find out, she interviewed our Open Source Security Lead, Mark “shrop” Shropshire, to get a layperson’s perspective on the security team’s approach.

Christine and Shrop on a call

 

“An off-cycle Drupal security advisory dropped on August 1, 2018. What does that mean for folks who aren’t developers?”

Flynn: I was watching the Slack channel as our team fixed sites, and I got some idea of what was happening. I’m not going to jiggle anybody’s elbows while they’re applying a security update, but I’m really curious now that the fixes are all in. 

Shrop: The official Drupal Security Advisory came out late in the day, after Symphony published their announcement in the morning. There was also one from Zend.

Flynn: I read all of those links while the team was applying the security update, but I feel like I didn’t totally understand the implications. I’d love to get a better picture from you of what they mean.

Shrop: You bet! I hope you can hear me, I’m at a coffee shop right now.

Flynn: Are you on their unsecured WiFi?

Shrop: Nope! I’m on a hotspot and on VPN. It’s funny, the more you know about security, the more it changes what you do. Other people think you’re paranoid. But you’re not! You just understand the realities. 

Flynn: Ha! Why am I not surprised? All right, let’s dig in.

“What was the security update for?”

Shrop: Drupal Core was updated because there were some security releases for Symfony. We call those “upstream” in the biz, which means that Drupal depends on them, and they are actively worked on outside of Drupal. I understand the Symfony project worked closely with the Drupal Security Team to make sure Symfony and Drupal were both updated and ready to be announced publicly at the same time. Drupal version 8.5.6 pulls in the Symfony updates as part of the Drupal update process. 

Flynn: Was that the only update?

Shrop: No, at the same time, there was also an update to Zend Framework, but that was only an issue for users who were making use of modules or sites that used Zend Feed or Daictoros. There is a core issue to update the related Zend libraries for those who require or need the updates. 

“If not updated, what could a malicious user do to a site?”

Shrop: This is a hard one to answer this soon after the release of the security advisory. I’m going to do some checking to see if I can get more information on this for academic purposes, but the Drupal Security Team is not going to make any statements that could help someone attack a site. It is up to security teams and researchers to dig into the code and determine more about the risks involved.

Based on the Symfony project’s blog post, it appears that a specially crafted request could allow a user access to a URL they do not have access to, bypassing access control provided by web servers and caching mechanisms. That’s a fancy-pants way of saying that a website visitor could gain access to pages you don’t want them to see.

“When will we know more?”

Shrop: Within days - sometimes hours - we might start to see exploit methods posted on the Internet. Taking security seriously and responding quickly once a drupal.org security advisory is announced is a way to stay ahead of these concerns.

Mediacurrent doesn’t want to fearmonger, but it is better to be safe than sorry. That’s why I always push to update as soon as possible while weighing in on mitigating factors that may lessen the severity of the issue for a particular application. But I will keep digging. I’m curious! 

“If you had to tell a CEO or CFO the value that implementing this security update swiftly provided, what would you say? Let’s say this CEO does not have a strong background in technology or security.”

Flynn: I could see an executive with a strong public safety or physical security background being pretty understanding of why you want to apply a security update for a potential vulnerability quickly, but what if it’s someone who doesn’t have that experience, and isn’t a technologist?

Shrop: Check out this link from Acquia about the security update. This helped me so much. They published this shortly after the PSA came out, and although they’ve updated the text since then, they said at the time, “It is advised that customers set aside time for a core upgrade immediately following.” When I read, “immediately,” I knew that we had to get the update out within hours. If I was asked to get on a call with the executives from any company, at that point, I am confident. If Acquia is saying it, we need to do it. That’s enough to stand on with anybody. I’m not saying that the Acquia team has more information, but they have a very robust security team. They always dig in quickly. They have to, to know if they can mitigate the issue by adding web application firewall rules.

Flynn: Firewall rules? How does that work? 

Shrop: The last few core updates, Pantheon and Acquia put mitigations into their WAF - that’s Web Application Firewall. Pantheon confirmed the night of the security advisory release that they were blocking attempts on their platform, and Acquia did the same thing. So if someone tried to exploit a site that was hosted there before Drupal was updated, they were there, helping to prevent that site from being attacked successfully. It’s a great extra layer of protection. Now, me and Acquia and Pantheon will always still want to update Core on each site, because WAF-level mitigation might not catch everything. But I am super happy when I see it because there’s a good chance that it will catch anything that happens while a team is still implementing a security update.

Security is all risk assessment and mitigation. You want to layer defenses. And something like this, we are going to make sure we deal with this problem. That’s why Acquia, Pantheon, Platform.sh, and others in the community immediately add those extra mitigations to their firewalls. It’s to buy time so that people can get their updates in. That’s not where mitigation ends, but it helps. 

“What type of sites were affected by this? Does everyone use Symfony?”

Flynn: When I first read about the upcoming security advisory, I saw that it affected “third party libraries.” That made me think that some of our clients might not be affected because it would only affect certain modules. Can you tell me what types of sites were affected?

Shrop: Got a link for you, but basically, anything on Drupal 8 was affected. Drupal 8 uses components from the Symfony project. The Drupal community made the decision to use Symfony so that we didn’t have to maintain everything ourselves. So this is a great example of the power of open source, with the Symfony and Drupal security teams working together to release this fix. We all end up benefiting from having a larger community to fix issues. There’s no way an internal team working by themselves can write as secure applications on their own compared to open source software, in my opinion. It has nothing to do with how good you are, it’s the nature of development. With open source, you have a greater team with Drupal and then again, with Symfony, an even greater team to lean on. With each community that is included you are expanding your team and your ability to detect and prevent threats. 

“How was the security vulnerability discovered?”

Shrop: That’s generally never disclosed because you never want to tell malicious users how you found an opening. 

But we do have a few people to thank: Michael Cullum and @chaosversum were thanked by Symfony for separately reporting the two issues addressed in Symfony security releases. They also thanked Nicolas Grekas for implementing the fix. I would also give a huge thanks to Symfony and the Drupal Security Team for coming together to implement the fix and for coordinating the announcements. It’s hard work, and it shows the community at its best.

“So when we have an off-cycle security release, first the PSA comes out. Can you tell me a bit about what Mediacurrent does from the time the PSA comes out to just before the security advisory drops?”

Flynn: As someone on the team at Mediacurrent, I can see some of the things you do. But I’m wondering what else happens behind the scenes? 

Shrop: The first thing that happens is that I’m notified about the PSA coming out. I’m signed up for updates via email, Twitter, and RSS feeds from https://www.drupal.org/security, and so are a lot of other folks at Mediacurrent. Internally, we have some processes that we have standardized over time for how to deal with security updates that we follow across the company. We centralize information we have on the security PSA/advisory, recommend client communications, and talk about how to prepare as a team. We have multiple communication threads internally, as well, so no one can miss it. I send an email to the staff and I post in our Slack in a few places to get us ready.

Flynn: I know that we often clear time in advance for the team to implement the security updates.

Shrop: Yep. All of us share more information as a team as official information is released or as our own investigations reveal information. For example, early on the day the security advisory was released, our DevOps Lead, Joe Stewart, noticed that Symfony had put out a notice that they were also going to be releasing a security update that day, so that gave us a heads up that it might be related. We couldn’t know for sure until the security advisory actually came out, though. No one can do it by themselves, which is why we have a whole team working on it - it’s the only way to handle these things. ​​​​​​

Christine and Shrop on another call

“So then the security advisory drops. How did we go about fixing the issue?” 

Shrop: First, we reviewed the advisory to assess risk and for any mitigations that help determine how quickly we need to perform updates. With this advisory, it was needed pretty much immediately, so we started to update Drupal core for our clients and pushed to test environments. Our QA team performed regression testing related to the update. Once QA approved each update for each client, we worked with folks to approve the updates and release them to the live environments. 

The important points are to line everyone and everything up in advance, have the talent in-house who can work on clients of all shapes and sizes and needs, and then to work as a team to resolve the issue on every client site as quickly as possible. 

“Were there any sites that were trickier to update? Why?”

Shrop: Clients that were on older versions of Drupal Core, who had delayed upgrading, were harder to update. Every site was updated within a short time, regardless, but even though they started at the same time, those clients did not finish first, because there was more development and testing needed on each site.

Flynn: What was different about the process to update those sites? 

Shrop: If a client wasn’t on version 8.5.x, the lead technologist on the project had to work on an alternative update to secure the site or application, since there wasn’t a security update released for it. Figuring out an alternative process on the fly always introduces risk. It’s part of the value that we bring, that we have team members that have the expertise to evaluate that sort of thing. For example, we had one new client that was on an older version of Drupal 8 core. So one of our Senior Drupal Developers, Ryan Gibson, had to go in and determine what to do. He ended up updating Symfony itself to mitigate the risk. 

Flynn: I’m guessing that we are going to recommend to that client that we update Drupal core for them very soon?

Shrop: Yes. The big takeaway is you’re lowering your risk of problems by staying on the most recent, up-to-date minor version of Drupal 8. Version 8.5.x is current and stable right now, so you should be on that.

Flynn: Why would a client not update?

Shrop: There are always dynamics. I hear lots of good excuses, and I’m not exaggerating, they are good, real reasons! The client is busy, the client has multiple workstreams, it’s hard - but it is getting to a point where I want to recommend even more strongly to clients that it is more expensive to not upgrade. It is going to cost them more when there is an update because we have these additional evaluation and update tasks. The whole point of Drupal 8’s release cycle is to spread the maintenance cost over years rather than getting hit all at once. 

Flynn: And it introduces greater risk. A security breach is an order of magnitude more expensive than extra mitigation steps.

Shrop: Definitely.

“When is the next version of Drupal Core coming out?”

Shrop: Version 8.6.0 will be released in September. Our teams are already starting to test the early versions of this release on some of our projects. If a security update comes out in September, we want all of our clients to be prepared by being on the currently supported version of Drupal core. That way, they will receive security updates.

Flynn: One of the nice things about the Drupal development community is that they provide the betas of the next version of Drupal core so you can get ahead of the next release, right?

Shrop: Yes. When the community starts releasing betas or release candidates, especially release candidates, you want to start testing ahead of time. If you have a Drupal site, you can get your developers to test. If you find a problem, it may not be with your site, it might be an issue with Drupal core and this is a great opportunity to contribute your findings back to drupal.org and help the greater community. There might be a security release weeks after a version comes out and you want to be prepared to implement it.

Flynn: It goes back to risk mitigation.

Shrop: If you are on, say, an 8.2 site right now, you’re on the higher risk side, unfortunately. We advise our clients that it is in their best interest to be on the current, stable version. It costs our clients more in the long run if they don’t update on a steady basis.

Flynn: So if you’re on an older version of Drupal Core, you might not get an easy-to-implement security update when a vulnerability is discovered?

Shrop: The quotes from the Drupal Security team I really want to emphasize are, “Previous minor releases will become unsupported when a new minor release is published,” and, “Any additional security updates for officially unsupported branches are at the sole discretion of the security team.” This is important to understand. For the SA Core 2018-002 fix earlier this year they provided release updates for older versions of Drupal… but they didn’t have to. In the case of the fix last week, they did not.

“What was the best gif exchange of the Drupal core security update process?”

Flynn: I nominate this one, from mid-afternoon:

Slack Gif Example

Shrop: Definitely! 

“What story didn’t we tell yet?”

Shrop: I think we covered most of it. The last thing I’d put out there is for the technical folks reading this. You need to read the security advisories, join Drupal Slack, read what Acquia, Pantheon, and others are saying about each announcement. Then, you take all of that in and make your assessment of what actions you are going to recommend your organization take. This should lead your organization to a documented security plan that you follow. But, you know… 

Flynn: “Update all the things”?

Shrop: Exactly!

          Mayor Durkan Is Hell-Bent on Killing the Center City Connector      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by David Cole

Future corridor of the Center City Connector. For Mayor Durkan, no lie is too big in order to stop the project.
Future corridor of the Center City Connector. For Mayor Durkan, no lie is too big in order to stop the project. DAVID COLE

This past spring I compared Mayor Durkan’s decision to “pause” the Center City Connector with a similar idiotic decision by Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley in 2013.

Upon due reflection, I owe the mayor an apology—Mayor Cranley, that is. Jenny Durkan has proven herself to be far more dishonest and conniving than John Cranley could ever hope to be.

John Cranley, to his credit, at least made his intentions clear about what he planned to do to the city’s under-construction streetcar project if he were to be elected as mayor. He vowed to kill the project, and when he got elected, he did his best to do so. It was only a groundswell of grassroots activism that flipped two members of city council to a veto-proof supermajority in favor of completing the project. But for all of John Cranley’s faults, which are many, at least we knew what we were in store for.

Jenny Durkan, by contrast, is a master of Seattle-style passive-aggression. Her own campaign page—conveniently taken offline since I linked to it in my last column about the streetcar—touted the Center City Connector’s benefits. At campaign forums, she made sure to follow her consultants’ advice and at least pretend to be in favor of public transit and bike lanes.

Her actions as mayor to date, though, show where her true feelings about public transit lie, and it’s not a pretty picture.

When Durkan first paused the Center City Connector, she commissioned a study (with a six-figure price tag, no less) to determine why the project was supposedly running over-budget. That report, which was to have been made public no later than June 19th, still hasn’t yet been released to the public.

I can guess at its findings.

The cost increases are most likely due to scope creep—that’s when the city decides to build a streetcar and a dozen other city agencies use that as an excuse to add to the project their own new utility lines, street lights, and anything else that’s been sitting on their wish list for a while—and the fact that literally every construction project in the nation is facing rising costs due to labor shortages, Trump’s trade wars, and a construction boom. Contractors and their subcontractors are in a position to name their price because they have people breaking down their doors to build stuff. My colleagues and I are dealing with these issues on our own projects; it certainly isn’t limited to transit projects.

And the study most likely concludes that, despite these cost increases, canceling the project at this stage will cost nearly as much as finishing it—and cancelling it will also cause long-term damage to the city’s credibility when applying for federal grants for future transit projects. In other words, kiss light rail to Ballard and West Seattle goodbye.

It is any wonder Durkan doesn’t want the study released to the public? If my educated guesses are correct, the study makes Durkan look stupid for pausing the project. And I'm pretty confident that I'm on the right track here—because if the study said the streetcar was a boondoggle that should never be built, Durkan would be shouting its findings from the top of the Space Needle and hand-delivering the study itself to every household in Seattle.

Instead Durkan went with Underhanded Plan B: Put out a press release saying the ten new streetcars the city just ordered are too big to fit the tracks and the maintenance barn. “We just need to find a media outlet credulous enough to report our press release verbatim without doing any independent fact-checking,” an aide probably said.

Seattle Times: “Hold my beer.”

Local transit advocates and bloggers jumped upon the Seattle Times story like flies on a pile of shit, digging up the technical specifications online and pointing out that the differences between the new streetcars and current ones are negligible.

Let’s take the track gauge, for example. Standard Gauge is 4 feet, 8 ½ inches (1435mm) between the inside faces of the rails, and it’s been that way since the British invented railroads during the Industrial Revolution. That’s why it’s called Standard Gauge. With only a small handful of exceptions, every transit system, every streetcar, every commuter railroad, and every freight railroad in the United States—and throughout much of the world—uses Standard Gauge tracks.

This isn’t rocket surgery. Durkan claiming the new streetcars are of a different track gauge is like the salesman at Home Depot claiming the electric appliances sold at Lowe’s don't run on the kind of electricity in your home's electrical outlets.

The Seattle Times eventually updated its story to reflect the technical specifications, but the damage had already been done. Fox News, ever eager to paint liberal Seattle as a bunch of incompetents, as on the story within minutes. (Ironically, it was Durkan herself who was made to look like the idiot.) As they say, a lie gets around the world before the truth can get its pants on.

As it turns out, Durkan had simply been following the script of another Cincinnati sage, one who took place long before Mayor Cranley ever assumed office. Back in the 1920s, Cincinnati was building a subway system. But inflation and materials shortages were causing costs to skyrocket, and a new administration took charge in City Hall. Before long, stories were leaked to gullible newspapers that the curves in the tunnels were too tight for the subway trains. Those stories live on as urban legend in Cincinnati today, but in reality, the tunnels were built to the exact same specifications as what is now the MBTA Red Line in Boston. But the lies worked, and two miles of tunnels and uncompleted four station shells now sit abandoned under Central Parkway just north of downtown.

The new mayor of the time, Murray Seasongood, is still looked upon as a “reformer” even as the Cincinnati area chokes on car exhaust. With Seattle now copying so many of Cincinnati’s past mistakes, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Jerry Springer become our next mayor. But then, maybe he’d be an improvement over Durkan.

Seattle's Center City Connector has been through years of planning, design, public hearings, and Seattle Process. City Council has voted to approve it. Promises have been made, and federal grants have been approved. For Durkan to kill the project now, via a deceitful end run around all that public input, is so dictatorial a move that Trump himself would approve. (Memo to Mayor Durkan: Nobody gives a flying fuck how many photo ops you take with refugees on the Mexican border so long as you're acting like a Trump surrogate here at home.)

If Mayor Durkan doesn’t want her mayoralty to be looked upon as an unfortunate mistake in Seattle’s history, she needs to resume construction on the Center City Connector post-haste. And if she won’t do it, a veto-proof majority of City Council needs to step in and provide the leadership that Durkan is apparently incapable of.

You can and should sign the petition demanding that the city build the Center City Connector now.

Vino, Cibo &amp; Musica per la Notte Blu di Brisighella sabato 04 agosto 2018: I vignaioli ed i ristoratori locali s&rsquo;incontrano per le vie del centro del borgo medioevale con le note italo-americane del progetto musicale Soul Doctor feat.

          XXIII edizione di TOVAGLIA A QUADRI, ad Anghiari (AR) dal 10 al 19 agosto 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Tovaglia a Quadri, evento teatrale che si svolge dal 1996 fra le mura medievali di Anghiari, in provincia di Arezzo, definito dai suoi autori &ldquo;cena toscana con una storia da raccontare in quattro portate&rdquo; arriva quest&rsquo;anno alla sua ventitreesima edizione. Promossa dall&rsquo;Associazione culturale Tovaglia a Quadri, che si occupa anche degli aspetti logistici e organizzativi, realizzata in collaborazione con l&rsquo;Associazione Teatro Stabile di Anghiari come responsabile della parte artistica, con il Comune di Anghiari (Ar) e la Rete Teatrale Aretina, con il sostegno della Regione Toscana e di numerosi sponsor locali, questa manifestazione raccoglie ogni anno oltre 1000 spettatori provenienti da tutto il territorio nazionale. Lo spettacolo che avr&agrave; luogo da venerd&igrave; 10 a domenica 19 agosto, alle ore 20,15, scritto come sempre dal direttore artistico del Teatro di Anghiari Andrea Merendelli e da Paolo Pennacchini, porta in scena come di consueto una storia centrata su problematiche del nuovo millennio che si fondono con le vecchie tradizioni del paese. Le storie narrate negli spettacoli sono infatti frutto di un continuativo lavoro di ricerca d&rsquo;archivio, unito alle testimonianze degli abitanti del posto, legate alla memoria di Anghiari, ai racconti dei nonni. Vicende di vecchia data che gli autori restituiscono alla collettivit&agrave; con un sapiente lavoro di ricerca, antiche passioni sopite, vicende pi&ugrave; o meno note ma anche personaggi dimenticati tornano a vivere grazie alle interpretazioni degli attori locali che si fanno cantori delle loro stesse radici. I personaggi tipici del paese abitano gli amarcord che si intrecciano con il presente e con le vite, solo apparentemente quiete, dei protagonisti. Il tutto condito dagli stornelli toscani che risuonano dalla fisarmonica e dalle voci degli stessi attori in mezzo ai vicoli di Anghiari mentre, tra una scena e l&rsquo;altra, il pubblico si gode la prelibatezza dei piatti e del vino rosso. &Egrave; questa tematica della memoria civile della collettivit&agrave; una delle caratteristiche salienti della manifestazione, che dal 1996 ci ha parlato e portato dentro piccole grandi storie che vanno dalle miniere etrusche a Leonardo, dal brigantaggio alle deportazioni nazifasciste, dall&rsquo;emigrazione in Argentina alla svendita dell&rsquo;acqua pubblica, dagli artigiani alla crisi della sanit&agrave; fino ad arrivare alla crisi occupazionale della Buitoni, partendo dal locale fino ad arrivare al nazionale. Storie antiche o temi di potente attualit&agrave;, come afferma Gianfranco Capitta &ldquo;Gradualmente, con lo scorrere degli anni e delle portate, si &egrave; passati dal racconto dei fasti di una celebre cortigiana locale approdata in Vaticano (l&rsquo;Anghiarina, appunto), al problema degli immigrati che qui sono molti e rendono possibili le grandi coltivazioni di tabacco pregiato&rdquo;. La carica civile non viene mai meno in questi temi brucianti, che a tavola sono divenuti patrimonio comune, raccontati con l&rsquo;umorismo toscano che rende &ldquo;accettabili&rdquo; le realt&agrave; raccontate, tutte pienamente documentate, in un vero e proprio teatro della memoria collettiva in cui la piazza del paese diviene una &ldquo;zona franca&rdquo; dove la memoria pu&ograve; essere (o non essere) condivisa da tutti. Le prime tredici sceneggiature sono state raccolte, nel volume Tovaglia a Quadri, tutte le storie, pubblicato nel 2009 con prefazione del critico teatrale Gianfranco Capitta. Palcoscenico deputato &egrave; la piazzetta del Poggiolino, luogo denso di significati per i suoi abitanti, una piazzetta lunga e stretta che si trova nel cuore del borgo. Paese della alta Val Tiberina, adagiato tra Toscana, Umbria e Marche, Anghiari &egrave; noto ai pi&ugrave; per il famosissimo affresco perduto di Leonardo da Vinci, giunto a noi tramite i disegni di Rubens (conservati al Louvre) e un&rsquo;opera del 1470 di Biagio di Antonio (oggi alla National Gallery of Ireland di Dublino). L&rsquo;opera di uno dei pi&ugrave; grandi geni dell&rsquo;arte raffigurava la famosa e omonima battaglia, che avvenne il 29 giugno 1440 proprio nella piana antistante la parte pi&ugrave; antica della citt&agrave;, il Poggiolino, appunto. Novit&agrave; nel men&ugrave; della cena e novit&agrave; nel cast degli attori. Oltre ai consueti piatti tipici del luogo (crostini, bringoli, bocconcini di Chianina, cantucci, vino rosso e vin santo del contadino), quest&rsquo;anno ci sono novit&agrave; nel men&ugrave; e nel cast degli attori. Il pubblico, seduto davanti alle tavole apparecchiate con le famose tovaglie a quadri della storica manifattura anghiarese, assister&agrave; allo spettacolo messo in scena dagli attori-abitanti, affacciati a porte e finestre che danno sulla Piazzetta. Sono gli stessi cittadini, non dunque attori professionisti, a recitare tra i commensali della lunga tavolata. A scandire la performance, gli intermezzi musicali che rappresentano una sospensione del racconto e accompagnano le portate servite agli spettatori dagli stessi attori, deputati al ruolo di camerieri, sia nella finzione che nella realt&agrave;. Le materie prime che compongono il men&ugrave; sono tutti a &ldquo;chilometro 0&rdquo;, per una spesa sostenibile ed ecocompatibile. Il teatro, il buon cibo e la vita quotidiana, una formula antica almeno quanto le mura di questo splendido borgo toscano. &Egrave; questo il significato profondo della Tovaglia a Quadri: il rovesciamento degli stereotipi vernacolari da intrattenimento, e da ultimo un rito collettivo, dove si mangia, si canta, si ride e si digerisce, a volte male, una realt&agrave; locale con specchi e riferimenti a rapporti e relazioni universali.Il tutto senza mai rinunciare a sceneggiature che attingono ad un grande patrimonio di battute e di originale comicit&agrave; toscana, che gli spettatori affezionati sanno ormai a memoria e che vantano numerosi tentativi d&rsquo;imitazione.

          Depends What You Mean by Extremist      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Category: 
True Crime

Expecting skinheads, John Safran rocked up to a far-right rally in Melbourne. What he found led him into the mad world of misfits who helped propel the second coming of Pauline Hanson and foreshadowed the era of Trump.

No one turns up where they’re not wanted quite like John Safran. In this hilarious and disorienting adventure he gets among our diverse community of white nationalists, ISIS supporters, anarchists and more, digging away at the contradictions that many would prefer be left unexamined. Who is this black puppet-master among the white nationalists? And this Muslim fundamentalist who geeks out on Monty Python? Is there a secret radicalisation network operating in John’s own Jewish suburb? And ultimately – is hanging with all these radicals washing off on John himself?

Populated by an extraordinary cast of ‘ordinary’ Australians, Depends What You Mean by Extremist is a startling, confronting portrait of contemporary Australia. We all think we know what’s going on in our own country, but this larger-than-life, timely, and alarmingly insightful true story will make you think again . . .

Drinking shots with nationalists and gobbling falafel with radicals, John Safran was there the year the extreme became the mainstream.

Lo Zoo è un antico retaggio ancora oggi in auge, per consentire a grandi e piccini di vedere da vicino animali che altrimenti guarderebbero solo in Tv, su riviste o sui dispositivi. Sottratte al loro habitat naturale, maltrattate per evitare che diano fastidio o per fargli eseguire docilmente quanto gli si chiede. Un po’ più tollerante sono nei confronti dei safari, dove almeno gli animali vivono in spazi ampi e sovente essi fungono da aree protette. Il Circo Orfei però deve aver fatto scuola. Infatti anche in un altro paese sono stati dipinti degli asini a mo’ di zebre. Ecco dove è successo e come ci si è accorti della truffa.

          L'importante mansione dei furetti nei tubi      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Su Internet è particolarmente facile esprimere un giudizio prima di avere sufficienti dati a disposizione, condannando qualcuno per un gesto apparentemente crudele che presenta in realtà uno scopo nobile, persino benefico nei confronti della piccola "vittima" designata. Del resto farebbe anche una certa impressione, all'inizio di questo video prodotto da Barcroft Media, vedere James McKay che solleva uno dei suoi animaletti addestrati, facendolo oscillare su e giù mentre lo tiene per la parte anteriore del corpo, per poi prenderne il fondoschiena e sollevarlo all'altezza della testa, piegando di fatto quella flessibile spina dorsale a 90 gradi. Se non fosse per la qualifica ed il lavoro di costui: fondatore e istruttore capo della Scuola per Furetti Nazionale, una prestigiosa istituzione nel paese di Oxford, Cambridge e la regina Elisabetta. La storia degli inglesi con questo simpatico animale, discendenza addomesticata della puzzola selvatica così come il cane lo è del lupo, è comunque piuttosto antica, risalendo quasi all'epoca nebulosa in cui, secondo gli studi archeologici, l'uomo primitivo scelse di ricorrere all'aiuto di uno dei più scaltri, svelti e potenzialmente mansueti carnivori delle boscose lande della Preistoria. Letterali millenni trascorsi a catturare conigli, estirpare topi e spaventare la volpe all'interno della sua tana, aspettandosi in cambio... Che cosa? Qualche dono di tipo alimentare, rigorosamente a base di carne (queste creature non digeriscono facilmente frutta o verdura) una cuccia sicura e l'affetto del proprio padrone umano, manifestato spesso attraverso manipolazioni soltanto in apparenza "violente", come quelle dimostrate nello spezzone...

La sterilizzazione del gatto è una procedura altamente consigliata per l'ampia varietà di vantaggi che comporta: diminuzione dell'aggressività, eliminazione del rischio di gravidanze indesiderate e di malattie a trasmissione sessuale, comportamento più calmo, affettuoso ed equilibrato, salute più protetta. Il micio non sente più l'esigenza di uscire e vagare all'esterno, e ciò si traduce in una maggiore sicurezza per la sua incolumità.

Buongiorno Capita spesso che i gatti abbiano paura della macchina e/o soffrano di mal di macchina. Le soluzioni possibili sono diverse e vanno valutate bene. Se il problema è il mal di macchina si può provare con farmaci appositi, funziona abbastanza bene il maropitan , si fa per iniezione prima di partire. Oppure si può utilizzare il dimenidrinato per bocca. In caso di fobia della macchina il problema è più complesso , si possono usare dei calmanti per es. il gabapentin.

          Un uccello ramingo dalle ali di cera      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Non ci credo. Non è possibile. Gli uccelli, nelle loro migrazioni, seguono un copione estremamente preciso e ripetitivo. Molte sono le conferme di un tale comportamento, intere famiglie e gruppi di specie molto diverse tra loro che attraverso una bussola e un calendario biologico, seguono itinerari straordinariamente precisi attraverso i confini del globo, incontrando regolarmente le stesse bolle climatiche, ecologiche e situazionali. Eppure ieri l'alto albero di ginepro del mio giardino appena fuori Milano, da un giorno all'altro, si è ritrovato del tutto spoglio delle splendenti bacche, con cui volevo preparare una gustosa marmellata color cobalto. Andando quindi ad interrogare il vicino, quello mi ha detto: "Si, si, robba de ciod! Non l'hai visto? Probabilmente eri al lavoro. C'è stata una calata d'uccelli invasori: grossi passeri marroni con maschera da ladro e la pancia grigiastra, la coda arancione, la lunga cresta aerodinamica, la punta delle ali di un rosso intenso. Non avevo mai visto nulla di simile in vita mia... Dolsa l'uga, eh?" Voglio dire: come no! Un uccello lungo all'incirca una quindicina di centimetri, noto per l'apprezzamento dei lombrichi e gli insetti di terra, qualche manciata di semi e un bocciolo o due, che spoglia completamente un albero di 25 metri di altezza... Credi che sia nato ieri o abbia preso una dose del medicinale che altera le percezioni noto in america come crazy pills, Fam? È stato allora più o meno, che ho deciso di confermare o smentire la strana storia mettendo una telecamera sul davanzale della finestra. Fregato una volta, la colpa e tua. Fregato due...

          Gravedigger Peas      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I seem to have missed the opportunity to photograph these peas close up, as I was too busy shelling them and eating them. There they are a little earlier in the season, setting pods like crazy, along with one lone and solitary Sugar Magnolia which seems to have gotten slightly lost. They are over and done long since, of course.

We grew them last year for the first time. I have wanted to try them ever since I read about them on Rebsie Fairholm's blog, so I was quite excited to see them listed by Annapolis Seeds. We planted a nice little patch last spring, and when we picked the first couple of pods to try, Mr. Ferdzy and I looked at each other in amazement and promptly agreed to eat no more - because we wanted to grow them out for seed, so we could grow masses of them this year.

Their history is not much known. They are English, and probably date back to the 19th century; no earlier. They were donated to the Heritage Seed Library who named them, as is their custom, for the furthest grower back to whom they can be traced; in this case a man who was a gravedigger by trade and pea grower by vocation. Rebsie says pretty much all that is known about them. 

We planted them a bit late this year and so they were not particularly early to produce. I think at any rate they are a mid-to-late-season pea, of a middle height. They are extremely bushy and dense, and produce heavily but somewhat slowly - a nice pea for the home gardener, since they should produce for a few weeks. I think ours were cut a bit short by the very hot dry weather this year but they still went longer than most peas. We will want to grow them in our trellised beds, I think, even though they are not the tallest. Their substance does mean they should get good support.

The pods are fat, and full. I don't think most will have more than 6 peas, but the peas are quite large. They are a lighter green than modern peas tend to be but they are so tender and flavourful. The peas tend to be a bit more ovoid than round. They are really quite distinctive and a little different than any of the other peas we have grown.

These are very obscure and rare, and I am so happy that Annapolis seeds was able to get hold of them. I can see already that these are going to be one of our must-grow favourite varieties.

Thank you so much for all your gardening advice in answer to the last post - it was so helpful and I learnt so many interesting things. In the comments, Wendy suggested that we bring in the experts, which was a novel idea as we usually do things ourselves, even if that means some trial and error. But, we did unwittingly end up bringing in an expert and that experience now makes me wonder what else we could make lovelier by consulting experts (this could actually be the beginning of an expert addiction).

The Sunday before last, when the intense heat was dramatically broken for a day, we drove off to an independent plant nursery that we'd never been to before. The extreme weather meant that we were the only ones there, so we had the luxury of the owner's undivided attention and, serendipitously, she also happened to be a talented and experienced garden designer; we couldn't quite believe our luck and spent a really happy few hours with her, even though we were all drenched and there was something oddly comic about persevering in discussing plants over howling wind and through lashing rain.


We showed her some photos of the space that we had and she helped us plan out plants for the two diagonal square beds (I felt overwhelmed by the idea of trying to do all of them in one go). She said we should focus on evergreens so that the front garden didn't look bleak in winter and that we could then infill with seasonal things if we wanted to. We started with a Viburnum Tinus standard tree for both beds, which will have clusters of small white flowers when it gets cooler, and then built a collection of plants to go around them: Euonymus Fortunei 'Harlequin', which is a low-lying rambling plant with green and white leaves; Heuchera with big showy red leaves; Pittosporum Tenuifolium golf balls of greenery; Sanguisorba 'Tanna' with heavy dark red heads balancing on wispy stalks; and red grasses that I can't remember the name of. You can see just those first two beds planted up in the photo above.

The following week, we went back to the same nursery to tackle another two beds. This time, we chose different things for each bed so that it didn't begin to look too uniform and formal. In one bed, we created a little box hedge and filled it with three box balls of different sizes to give a cloud effect - I'm looking forward to adding in white cyclamen around those in winter. In the other, at the back right, we chose an Acer Bloodgood tree, which will turn a fiery red in Autumn (we have one in the back garden that my father gave me as a gift and it's a total delight), although it doesn't show up so well in the photo as it's currently a dark purple. Beneath it, we planted Sedum 'Matrona' that has green foliage, red stalks and will be covered in clusters of reddy-pink flowers at some point, so it speaks nicely to the colours of the acer; Teucrium Fruticans, which I had to be persuaded on as it's slightly chaotic before being trimmed back to good behaviour, but has nice grey-blue leaves that make me think of eucalyptus; Cerastium 'Snow in Summer' that will flower next spring; and something else that I can't remember.


Here are a few photos of it once those beds were planted up. My husband has since clipped the hedge, which makes a difference to how neat it looks. The garden designer's suggestions were a long way from the cottage garden style I'd been imagining and asking questions about in my previous blog post, but I love what she came up with. She listened to our likes and dislikes and was able to explain really quickly why certain plants would and wouldn't work and removed the many weeks of indecision and pondering that would have occurred if we'd been left to our own devices.


When I consider that the photo below is what it looked like before, I'm really thrilled. This was a small project in comparison to my husband's last, but felt no less impressive for the transformation it brought. How is this possible when he can't put up a curtain pole without the air being filled with dust and swear words as the hole in the wall gets bigger and bigger? I'm beginning to think he has selective capabilities (Nb. I realised as I wrote that that I do too: although I can make clothing from scratch, I still take jeans to the tailor to be hemmed and my birthday present a few years ago was some curtains made by someone who wasn't me).


I've went along on the trips to buy reclaimed tiles, sand, hardcore rubble and plants, but mostly I've just perched on the oak sleepers now and then with Nell at my feet, chatting to him while he's worked. Nell, by the way, has loved this project and enjoyed trotting up and down the driveway and lying in the sun watching people go by as my husband has tamped down tiles. She seems to sense that being allowed in the front garden without a lead is a privilege that requires best behaviour and she's more than risen to that challenge. When she was smaller she seemed to seek out shade, but as a middle-aged dog, she flops down and lets the sun warm her golden hair, pressing her chin to the ground contentedly and sighing from time to time, following your movements with her eyes.

It's been a project of extremes for my husband: most of the time it's been done in 30+ degree heat...


...but then at other times it's been quite wild and wet and required the wearing of full waterproof trousers; I stayed inside with the teenagers and watched Monty Don's Big Dreams, Small Spaces, as I lack the right trousers and dedication to the cause. 


There are two beds to the right of the path that had some old hebes in that had become woody at the base, flowering only at the outermost parts of each branch. When I rang a nursery that specialised in hebes, the man advised that rather than digging it up and replacing it, we should cut it right back to about 30cm while it's still in flower to try and force it to put on new growth immediately that would tell us if it was salvageable (if you're thinking of doing the same, know that it needs an entire bucket of water over it for the first few days and then regular watering afterwards until it's reestablished). We were excited to see beautiful little leaves forming all over the once-bare sticks within twenty-four hours. On the heels of that initial success, we trimmed back all the hebes that are in the bed in front of our living room window that were starting to show signs of doing the same, which has made it look horribly bare, but will hopefully bring long-term gain. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

In the comments to the last post, Deborah mentioned 'lasagne planting', where you stack several layers of annuals to flower consecutively - I was really taken by that idea and am hoping to make a lasagne in a pot, which I think will be my first foray into bulbs. I'm going to wait until September to pick my bulbs when the new Sarah Raven catalogue might be out. I've grown things from her seeds before (sweet peas and cornflowers) and they've always done well, even if the results were slightly curious due to my refusal to thin them out - you can see their crazy selves at the bottom of this post with my lovely grandmother for scale.



My husband is now turning his attention to our back garden, as although he overhauled that several years ago, he has some ideas for a little remodelling in the back corner to give us more space to eat outside and perhaps incorporate some sort of handmade solar-powered water feature.

In other thoughts, you may remember my post about blogging recently. Serendipitously, Abby Glassenberg happened to release an ebook all about blogs and blogging in that same week and when she saw my post she kindly sent me a copy. We've been away (camping with old school friends) and out and about a lot over the last few weeks, but I finally got a chance to sit and enjoy reading it yesterday and can heartily recommend it if you're thinking of starting your own blog or if you're trying to build a business around one. It's called The Creative Blogging Cookbook: What you Need to Know to Grow Your Business Through Blogging. Abby goes through everything you'd need to know providing lots of information, links and references, but isn't overly prescriptive, which I love; the essence of blogs is that they're unique to each author and Abby totally respects that and champions finding your own voice and rhythm.

In finding the link, I happened to see Abby's most recent post on dressmaking, which features her gorgeous garden in the background - I'm always struck by how cramped our houses and gardens are in England by comparison and was left swooning. It's a really interesting post in its own right, with or without the garden stalking.

Is anyone going to the Festival of Quilts this week? It's one of the highlights of my year and I'm hoping to go on Friday with my daughter if I can stand comfortably by then - I was brushing my teeth this morning when I leant forward slightly and felt an intense pain in my spine. It was so curiously painful that I saw an osteopath within a few hours and have been immobilised for much of the day (I've always found walking is good for a bad back in the past, but with this she advised avoiding movement), but I'm dosing myself with Arnica and Neurofen and hoping to still make it - the idea of missing out on all that inspiration would feel quite devastating.

Reitdiep Marina, Groningen. by Remo Scarfò


Reitdiephaven is the idyllic, picturesque, cute, colorful, romantic, cool, clean, photogenic, colorful and powerfully beautiful little harbor on the outskirts of the city Groningen. Next to Zernike. The special thing is that the district does not exist that long. Normally people fall for Grunn's historic splendor, such as Stadhuis, Martinitoren and Lage der A. But not Instagram, Reitdiephaven is the most popular spot from the Netherlands. Justly. It is a brilliant piece of Groningen. You imagine yourself abroad. With inclement weather somewhere in some fishing village above the Arctic Circle, with tropical temperatures on a romantic island somewhere in the South Sea.

          Dead Cells Developers Focusing On Switch Performance In Hopes For Late 2018 Fix      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

You might have heard already, but Dead Cells is great. The action rogue-like is receiving a wave of positive critical reaction after coming to consoles and coming out of early access on PC. Switch owners, however, are reporting that the game does not maintain a fluid framerate, which is feedback developers Motion Twin are hoping to rectify.

On Nintendo Switch subreddit, a post was put up yesterday warning Switch owners sensitive to framerate fluctuations about Dead Cells. The post got over 500 upvotes, so it ended up getting quite a few eyes on it. In response, Motion Twin posted a statement in the comments responding to the issues people are having. 

While the developer was aware of the framerate drops, they didn't think it was a significant enough issue to significantly delay that version of the game. They admit that dismissing the issue wasn't the right call and are now planning to focus on bringing that version up to snuff, which may take some time as they've moved past the more obvious fixes that could be done. Any fixes now have to be done by digging deep into the Switch version to solve the framerate issue.

"This leaves us with the big time consuming changes as well as exploring new possibilities which might really help, or not, we won’t know until we start," Motion Twin wrote. "Of course on console all updates must be certified before reaching you guys, which adds extra time between now and a potential fix. So to be clear we’re looking at November at the absolute earliest, if the god of game dev comes down from the clouds ad [sic] blesses our guys right now. This is however as soon as it is physically possible for us right now.

"We apologize to everyone who was expecting a higher port quality and to anyone who has been disappointed by the performances on the Switch so far," they concluded. 

Dead Cells is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC now.

 

The Switch version does have framerate drops, but I haven't noticed it to be too bad. That said, it would have been smart of them to release comparison footage before the versions dropped so that they didn't end up in this situation.

Diventare pazzi nella società odierna è più o meno un diritto che non abbiamo alcuna intenzione di far valere, un pò come quegli omaggi che non abbiamo mai chiesto e che siamo quasi obbligati a ricevere, altrimenti, se avessero avuto un'utilità, lo avrebbero dato proprio a noi? Possiamo affermare che la mente, col passare degli anni, diventa una vecchia baldracca che vuole comandare perpetrando continui agguati che noi non possiamo in alcun modo arginare. Viviamo alla sua mercé, e decide lei come e quando.

          Gadfly Bites 8/8/18 – Contributing Factors, or The Whale      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  1. Reporter Josh Sweigart is still digging deeply into the difficulties facing Dayton City Schools. Case in point: his look at six factors that contribute to the observed achievement gap between black and white students in the district. He takes a deeply historical approach to his analysis here. (Dayton Daily News, 8/7/18) The difference between that piece and this one – looking at the topic of student health and academic achievement based upon survey responses from schools and districts around Montgomery County – could not be more stark. Forget about cultural bias and food insecurity; these schools are apparently worried their students’ hearts could stop at any moment! (Dayton Daily News, 8/8/18)
     
  2. The newest academy concept school operated by Toledo City Schools made its debut this week. The Aerospace & Natural Science Academy of Toledo opened in renovated digs at the airport. Sounds generally STEM-my and interesting, but I do wonder whether this much sauce was really required to get kids into the Air Force. Two interesting points in this brief story: First, unlike previous academies we’ve reported on, it seems that all the support for this one is coming from the district itself – $4.5 million was reportedly needed to kit out the building alone. Heaven only knows about transportation going forward! Second, though, is even more intriguing (since we know that Toledo schools are flush with cash). It is noted here that students at the academy will come from “across Northwest Ohio”. Wonder how that bit of school choice sleight-of-hand is going to happen? (Toledo Blade, 8/6/18)
     
  3. Speaking of the more shadowy realms of school choice in Ohio, here’s a profile on what is known colloquially as an “08 school”, named for the section of state law that authorizes them to exist – aka a non-chartered, non-tax-supported, non-public school. Well, I say “profile” but it’s more of a deep-dive investigation piece more suited to such topics as Area 51 or chemtrails. Why all the interest? Because the Christians of Faith Academy appears to be a nascent football powerhouse which has sought out a daunting schedule of games against all the existing powerhouses. Which is something you don’t do in Ohio high school sports without your fair share of scrutiny. For what it’s worth, this non-sports fan says go Ironmen! I think. (ThisWeek News, 8/6/18)
     
  4. In more-traditional-school sports news, ice hockey will return to Stow-Munroe Falls High School this winter for the first time in more than 10 years. Sounds like a big and expensive endeavor about which everyone involved clearly cares very deeply. This non-sports fan could barely care less, sadly. This clip’s for you, Jessica. Go Bulldogs! (MyTownNEO, 8/8/18)
     
  5. In Lorain, the elected school board this week voted unanimously to join the legal fight against the state law that created CEO-style Academic Distress Commissions, under whose aegis Lorain City Schools currently operates. Due to, you know, persistent academic underperformance. (Elyria Chronicle, 8/6/18) Speaking of Lorain-based legal stuff, at least six former administrators in Lorain are pursuing legal action against the district after being let go from their positions in sweeping changes made by CEO David Hardy. Why? Because, as the elected school board president lays it out: “Those administrators have a right to at least a teaching position.” Among other reasons. (Elyria Chronicle, 8/8/18)
     
  6. We end the day with what is great news to many across Ohio: The legal saga of the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow is likely done for good as the Ohio Supreme Court today ruled against the remnants of the former school’s appeal of a lower court ruling. I don’t have anything witty or insightful (or even “edgy”) to add here, but I’m sure others’ voices will fill that void. (Columbus Dispatch, 8/8/18) While the above clip feels like a showstopper, we can’t end here. Why? Because I want to give the redoubtable Doug Livingston the final word in today’s clips. Doug’s bête noir of more than two decades—his white hatted whale, if you will—has finally been vanquished from Ohio waters. White Hat Management, he writes this week, is out of the charter school business forever. “The for-profit operator founded in 2000 by Akron industrialist David Brennan has quietly sold off the last of its contracts to run charter schools. Brennan and his company formed a primordial force that ushered these publicly funded but privately run schools to Ohio some 21 years ago.” Sheer poetry, right? A fitting end. (Akron Beacon Journal, 8/7/18)

On March 16, 2017, Albino Quiroz Sandoval popped out of the house around 5 p.m. for a little trip to the shop. The 71-year-old lives in Tepoztlán, a small colonial town with little crime, a weekend getaway from hectic Mexico City. Quiroz had been a public school teacher for 48 years. Everyone knows him. By 8 p.m., he wasn't home. His family grew worried. His son Juan Carlos Quiroz, who was a 90-minute drive away in Mexico City, got a frantic call from his sister. "We didn't know what to do," Juan Carlos recalls. "My sister and I thought it could be a kidnapping." It is a reasonable assumption. More than 37,000 people have disappeared in the country since 2007, according to a Mexican government database . Independent monitors say the number is even higher. The family quickly found Albino's car just a few blocks from his house but saw no sign of him. Juan Carlos kept digging. He questioned neighbors and reported the disappearance to police.

          Once upon a Hollywood, there was a hell of a stuntman. Hal Needham      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The son of sharecroppers, Needham was born in Memphis, Tenn., in 1931, and spent most of his childhood so deep in the Ozarks that, as he liked to joke, "You had to pump the sunshine to us." Dropping out of school after eighth grade, he worked as a tree trimmer in St. Louis before joining the Army's 82nd Airborne Division in 1951. When he left the service he headed west with three pairs of jeans, six T-shirts, a buddy and no particular plan.


The Bud Rocket... it did run on Muroc and Bonneville, it was fast, and Hal Needham owned it.

Needham didn't drive the Bud Rocket though, Stan Barret did, and Barret was Paul Newman's stunt double, and was sparring with Bruce Lee. He also was on the Dean Martin Roast of Ronald Reagan, and since Needham was friends with Dean Martin, and Sammy Davis, they starred in the movie Cannonball Run, which we'll get to at the bottom of this post.

His run was witnessed by some famous people who knew about speed... Chuck Yeager, Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins, and William J. "Pete" Knight, who, to this day holds the all-time speed record for level flight, when he flew an X-15 at Mach 6.7.






Unfortunately, there is no accurate or verifiable way to know what speed it ran. But that's what you get with publicity stunts vs real hardcore attempts at landspeed records. There was no FIA, no SCTA, etc etc to get an accurate high speed, average speed, and they didn't turn around for a return run to get a both ways required run for the international record. But, they really didn't care about all the hoopla. They made money, got rich, caused a hell of a media splash.. and didn't have to hire Evel Knievel.

But there once was a time in America when crazy guys built these land speed rockets in their garages. Not warehouses, not military testing facilities, but in their garages. That's where Breedlove built his Spirit of America. https://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2010/03/lots-of-cool-photos-over-at-hamb-heres.html

Paul Newman climbing into the Budweiser Rocket at Bonneville, Newman was responsible for putting together the relationship for Budweiser to be the lead sponsor.

After 9 runs at Bonneville, the Budweiser Rocket kept digging into the unstable salt surface which presented a serious safety issue, and Chuck Yeager interceded and got them permission from the Air Force to run at Muroc, now part of Edwards AFB.


It wasn't Needham's 1st land speed vehicle though, the SMI Motivator was. You've probably never heard of that, because it never accomplished anything.

During 1976 Needham tested the Budweiser/SMI Motivator –sponsored vehicle in excess of 600 mph on a huge dry lake located in Oregon. So... credit him that, and give him 2 of those ballcaps that celebrate breaking the 300 mph barrier... or a 400 and a 200. I just don't thing they ever made a 600 mph hat, as only a couple people have ever, or will ever go faster on wheels.

The `SMI Motivator' was made available to two drivers:  Needham and the wife of his partner Duffy Hambleton. Kitty O'Neil was a 28-year-old Irish and Cherokee woman from Texas, who was to drive the 'Motivator' to a new women's record, while Hal went for the speed of sound.

Nothing but a publicity gambit.

Needham's sponsor had paid out more than $75,000 to get him the drive, but after a high-speed foray on Mud Lane at Tonopah in Nevada, he run out of lake and into the sage brush on the surrounding desert, vowing never to drive the car again. (I've never heard of a dry lake near Tonopah, and the internet turned up no info)

Lets face it, no one even tries, and if they wanted to, Bonneville probably can't support that if everything I've heard about the condition of the salt is correct.


In May 1977, his movie directorial debut was released... and Smokey and the Bandit which cost 12 million reaped tenfold that amount in less than 6 months. And that was the summer all movies had to compete with Star Wars for ticket sales, which had been released 2 days earlier than Smokey.

Burt Reynolds became the highest paid actor in cinema history up to that point, for this movie, making five million dollars for four weeks work.
Roger Moore never drove an Aston Martin in the Bond movies, but he drove a DB5 in Smokey.
The Ferrari 308 used in the movie belonged to Director Hal Needham.
Ron Rice, owner of Hawaiian Tropic, loaned his black Lamborghini to his buddies Burt Reynolds and Hal Needham.
The moustache worn by Burt Reynolds in this movie was subsequently auctioned for the charity, UNICEF. The auction was held in Geneva, Switzerland, and the winning bid was twenty-five thousand dollars from Freddie Mercury
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082136/trivia

And that's when Needham might be considered to have created redneck buddy movies. He directed, Burt Reynolds drove, and everyone was happy.  He created movies with fast cars, car stunts, bar fights, country music and devil-may-care men who’d do anything for a buddy, and for a good time.

Just in time for Dukes of Hazard to catch the wave and ride it to CBS in Jan 1979. It was based on a 1975 movie, Moonrunners, which was identical in every way to the tv show, just not as cute and funny.

The movie was narrated by Waylon Jennings who introduces and comments on the story of cousins, who run moonshine for their widower uncle Jesse who knows the Bible better than the local preacher. He makes liquor, according to his "granddaddy's granddaddy's" recipe, in stills named Molly and Beulah.  In the opening, one of the cousins is in the county jail for a bar fight at the Boar's Nest. So, you can see, it's a movie version of the tv show, with a couple character names changed. There's a Cooter, and a county boss bad guy who owns the Boar's Nest and the local brothel. He sells moonshine to yankees. To get at Jesse’s supply, Sheriff Rosco Coltrane harasses the cousins who use bow and arrows because they are on probabtion and can't own guns. There's the whole Dukes of Hazard County in a nutshell.

Anyway.... getting back to Hal Needham.

He was a paratrooper in the Army. No wonder he got a job in Hollywood as a stuntman

As the highest paid stuntman in the world, Hal Needham broke 56 bones, his back twice, punctured a lung and knocked out a few teeth. His career has included work on 4500 television episodes and 310 feature films as a stuntman, stunt coordinator, 2nd unit director and ultimately, director.

Needham wrecked hundreds of cars, fell from tall buildings, got blown up, was dragged by horses, rescued the cast and crew from a Russian invasion in Czechoslovakia, set a world record for a boat stunt on Gator (1976), jumped a rocket powered pick-up truck across a canal for a GM commercial and was the first human to test the car airbag.

He wrote Cannonball Run II, Stroker Ace, Smokey and the Bandit one and two
In addition, he directed Smokey and the Bandit one and two, Cannonball Run one and two, Hooper, Stroker Ace, and others that really aren't important or impressive.

Jackie Chan makes one of his first U.S. film appearance in Cannonball Run, and inspired by Hal Needham's notion of including bloopers during the closing credits, Chan began a tradition of doing the same in most of his movies.

The ambulance used in the movie, is the actual ambulance that Hal Needham and Brock Yates souped up and raced in the real Cannonball Run. It had been upgraded with a hemi, and topped out at 145 mph, and was equipped with 4 gas tanks, and 4 filler holes, so that the max ninety gallons could be pumped quickly from one gas station island. Needham and Yates didn't win the race (the transmission blew in Palm Springs, California) so Needham kept it in storage for several years, until the time came to make this film.






Stan Barret related the true story about how he was the stunt double for Burt Reynolds on the movie Hooper and  loaned Burt his Rolex to wear in the movie as Burt played the role of Hal, and they kept passing it back and forth as Stan wore it in the stunt scenes and Burt wore it in the regular scenes. The action movie Hooper was loosely based upon his and Hal Needham's careers as stuntmen.


He invented and introduced to the film industry, the air ram, air bag, the car cannon turnover, the nitrogen ratchet, the jerk-off ratchet, rocket power and The Shotmaker Camera Car to make stunts safer and yet more spectacular at the same time.  He also directed the 1980's hit BMX movie Rad.

Needham co-owned a NASCAR race team and was the first team owner to use telemetry technology.

In February 1981 Needham and Burt Reynolds debuted their Skoal Bandit Racing team at the Daytona 500. They intended to run 19 races with (previously featured at the beginning of this article) Stan Barrett at the wheel.  The Skoal-Bandit race team was one of the most popular NASCAR teams ever - second only to that of Richard Petty

After running the Bud Rocket and using real time telemetry, Needham decided to employ it on his stock car. With permission from Bill France, it was installed in the car for the Talladega race. Every other team in the pits had a fit because they were getting real time updates in the pits from the car on exactly what was going on. It was the only time France allowed it.

Journeyman driver Harry Gant was enlisted to assist crew chief Travis Carter in setting up the car for Barrett.  After Gant, driving for another team, finished second to Cale Yarborough at the Atlanta race, Needham approached Gant about driving a second car for the team.


Gant's first start for the team came a month later at Darlington and he finished second. Halfway through the year Barrett was gone and the team now competed fulltime on the NASCAR circuit. After five more runner-up finishes, Gant broke through and won his first race at Martinsville in April 1982.

After 17 years of racing, most of them in NASCAR's lesser divisions, Gant was a star and his fans that cheered him on the short tracks had a Winston Cup hero. Gant won eight more races and finished in the top-five in points four times before Needham bowed out of the sport after the 1988 season.

Gant credits Needham with being a major force in changing the face of stock car racing. "Hal was the first to dress the crew in matching embroidered uniforms. He had a big hauler with the car painted on it. He brought people from Hollywood to the races. He even had cheerleaders in the pits once."


In 2012, Needham received a Governor's Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The academy, which gives no Oscars for stunt work, cited Needham as "an innovator, mentor and master technician who elevated his craft to an art and made the impossible look easy."

Injured wildlife advice

Tom Hibbert

What to do if you find a sick or injured animal

As your local Wildlife Trust we survey, monitor, conserve and campaign for wildlife across the region; lobbying Government and working on your doorstep to give wildlife a voice and protect important wild spaces. What we don't do, however, is take in injured wildlife.

Unfortunately we aren't a wildlife rescue, and we don't have the facilities or the expertise to nurse birds, hedgehogs and other creatures back to health.

So, what should you do if you find a sick or injured animal?

It all depends on the kind of animal you have found and what appears to be wrong with it. Below, you can find advice about what to do next in some of the most common situations, and crucially, who to contact to make sure the animal gets the help it needs as soon as possible.

To find your nearest wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centre please scroll to the bottom of the page.

Sick and injured wild birds

Finding a bird that seems to be in distress can be worrying. Here is what you can do.

Amy Lewis

Baby birds and fledglings

It isn't uncommon to find baby birds on the ground during nesting season. If it has no feathers, or very few feathers, it is a nestling that is too young to be out of the nest. It may have fallen out, so see if you can see the nest. Only return the bird if you are absolutely sure you have found the right nest, and only if the nestling is healthy. If you can’t find the nest or the chick is visibly poorly, take it safely to a professional wildlife rescue (numbers at the bottom of this page).

If you find a bird that is more or less fully feathered, it is a fledgling that has taken its first brave flight. Fledglings can't actually fly properly when they first leave the nest and may spend up to a week near the ground, so please don't be worried. The parents will be off gathering food or watching from a safe distance. Unless the fledgling is visibly sick or injured please leave it well alone. If it is near the road, on a path or in another dangerous place, gently pick it up and move it to a sheltered spot as nearby as possible. If the fledgling is definitely injured or obviously unwell, transport it safely home and call your local wildlife rescue.

Injured adult birds

If you have found an adult bird that is struggling to fly, can't walk or is visibly sick or injured in another way, please call your local wildlife rescue for advice. Small birds like blue tits and blackbirds can be safely taken home while you call the rescue, but larger birds need specialist handling and are best left alone to avoid unnecessary stress.

Sick and injured hedgehogs

Have you seen a hedgehog out during the day or noticed that one of your local hogs looks unwell? Here is what to do next.

Gillian Day

Hedgehogs out during the day

It can be exciting to see a hedgehog out and about in the daytime, but this is actually a sign that the hog isn't very well at all. Hedgehogs are nocturnal and don't venture out in the daytime unless they're poorly or malnourished, so it's crucial to get help as soon as possible or the hog may die. Look out for them looking disoriented, struggling to walk or showing little fear of humans.

Hedgehogs in your garden

Keep a close eye on the hedgehogs in your garden. Like with hedgehogs seen out during the daytime, take action if you spot a hog that is visibly struggling.

Unfortunately, garden hedgehogs often fall victim to horrific fire or strimmer injuries. Please check bonfires, piles of leaves and grass for hedgehogs before lighting or tidying up, and if you do accidentally injure one, call your local hedgehog rescue as soon as possible. You can find some contact details at the bottom of this page.

Sick and injured bats

Bats have special protections that mean they must be handled by licensed professionals. Here is what to do if you find a bat.

Tom Marshall

Grounded bats

Any bat that is found on the ground or in an exposed area - especially during the day - is likely to need help. However, please bear in mind that bats have special protections and must only be handled by professional bat officers.

If the bat is on the ground, on an outside wall, or in another exposed area where it could be vulnerable, try to get it into a box that contains a clean dishcloth where the bat can hide. Place the box over the bat and slide a piece of card underneath it, like you would with a spider. If you must handle the bat to get it into the box, wear gloves or use a tea towel to gently scoop it up. You should never handle a bat with your bare hands.

Once the bat is safely contained, pop a milk bottle lid full of water into the box and call the National Bat Helpline on 0345 1300 228. Click here for more advice from the Bat Conservation Trust.

Bats in the house

Don't panic if you find a bat flying around in your house, and don't try to catch it (this could cause the bat unnecessary stress or injury). Instead, if it's a warm evening, close the door to the room, open the windows as widely as possible and dim the lights. This will give the bat a chance to find its own way out.

If you find the bat flying during the day, wait until it lands, contain it as we have described above, and release it at dusk. You can find more information on the Bat Conservation Trust's website.

          Lombalgia o Mal di Schiena in Gravidanza      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Il mal di schiena in gravidanza è una patologia molto comune e ne soffrono tante future mamme. La colonna vertebrale, i legamenti e i muscoli della schiena, infatti, sono sottoposti durante la gravidanza a sollecitazioni davvero estreme. Oltre al peso della madre, essi devono sopportare il peso del figlio (sempre più grosso) e quello dei tessuti in eccedenza della madre stessa (grasso, sanque, acqua). Non c’è da stupirsi quindi, che in molti casi compaiano dolori.Aggiungiamo inoltre che anche alcuni ormoni, come l’estrogeno placentare e la relaxina, contribuiscono ad “ammorbidire” le ossa ed i legamenti, provocando una curvatura in avanti della colonna vertebrale. Ne parliamo con un fisioterapista che ci dà qualche consiglio.

"Sono incinta?", è una delle ricerche più frequenti fatte su Google. La risposta ormai ce la danno sia gli affidabili test di gravidanza che si possono comperare in farmacia sia l'analisi delle Beta HCG; dopo l’impianto dell’embrione, il livello di hCG aumenta quotidianamente. Nei primi 2-4 mesi dalla fecondazione, l’hCG normalmente raddoppia ogni 48-72 ore. Il livello massimo si raggiunge intorno all’8a – 10a settimana e poi diminuisce, rimanendo a dei livelli inferiori per il resto della gravidanza.

          Perché hai paura di cambiare vita      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Quella che viene definita paura del cambiamento dipende da tanti fattori, soprattutto legati alla nostra incapacità di auto-sostenerci all'infuori della società, ma anche dal timore di riscoprirci incapaci di fare qualsiasi cosa che non sia il nostro lavoro. Abbiamo paura di cambiare vita perché siamo il nostro lavoro, ci identifichiamo in quello e non siamo in grado di pensare di poter fare altro per vivere. Questa paura di cambiare si supera realizzando un progetto suddiviso in più passaggi, perché se ciò che dobbiamo fare risulta chiaro, allora non temeremo più nulla. Cambiare vita diventa un progetto realizzabile se lo si affronta utilizzando quelle tecniche che eliminano la pura del cambiamento.

SosPediatra per iPhone e Android è l’applicazione che vi consente di cercare un pediatra in zona, di contattarlo e di fissare un eventuale una visita a domicilio. Una volta creato il proprio profilo gratuito (con dati personali e quelli del proprio o dei propri figli) potrete effettuare al volo una ricerca attraverso la classica geolocalizzazione. A questo punto compariranno i pediatri disponibili in zona (tutti qualificati e regolarmente iscritti all’ordine dei medici) con relativa possibilità di richiedere una visita a domicilio con un orario prefissato. Se l’operazione è andata a buon fine riceverete un messaggio di conferma. A questo punto non dovrete fare altro che attendere l’arrivo del medico e a fine visita potrete pagare. Semplice, veloce ed estremamente sicuro. L’interfaccia grafica dell’applicazione offre un design pulito e di semplice utilizzo. Vi basteranno pochissimi tap sullo schermo per cercare e prenotare una visita. Unico “neo” attuale? Una copertura nazionale non al top… Ma penso sia solo questione di tempo per vedere nuovi medici disponibili ???? Un applicazione che potrebbe tornare estremamente utile ai neo genitori… Sopratutto in caso di viaggi o vacanze fuori porta. Consiglio di tenerla installata sul proprio smartphone per sicurezza.

          5 yard updates you can complete in a fall weekend      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

(BPT) - If you love spending time in your yard, the end of summer can mark a period of sadness thinking about the colder temperatures and shorter days you must endure before getting back outside.

One sure cure for the blues is looking forward to something fun. Get a head start on spring and use the time now to complete a project that will enhance your yard. Whether you’ve been wanting a patio, a zen garden or just some new flower beds, fall weekends are an ideal time to make it happen. By spring, they’ll be ready and waiting for your finishing touches!

With the help of rental equipment, you can get these jobs done in a fraction of the time and with much less of an investment than purchasing expensive tools yourself. Here are five weekend projects you can complete this fall and dream about all winter.

* Zen garden: Building a free-standing, minimalist zen garden is a simple but powerfully effective way to add beauty and texture to a lawn or patio. To get a head start in the fall, plan where you’d like to set that rectangle of tranquility in your yard. Once that’s measured and marked off, you can rent a sod cutter to almost effortlessly remove the grass. Before the ground freezes, give that rectangle a stone border, and cover with a tarp. When spring comes, the foundation of your zen space will be ready and waiting for you to add plants, shrubs, gravel, lanterns and maybe a statue or two.

* Pond: This fall, choose a sunny spot in your yard to build your pond, and then rent a tool, like a mini-excavator, to move the dirt and even carve out the terraces. When that job is done, you’ll have plenty of time to get the bulk of the project ready for spring, such as adding your sand layer, the waterproof liner and installing the pump. Finally, arrange the rocks to create a beautiful and natural-looking perimeter that’s waiting for spring and the addition of water and plants.

* Patio and pergola: When you compare a paver-brick patio with a traditional wood deck, the advantages of the patio are very evident. Patios are easy for do-it-yourselfers to complete in a weekend or two, they’re less expensive to build and they’re easier to maintain and repair. You can also add a pergola to create a beautiful space for outdoor dining and entertaining. With the help of a rented post hole digger, you can have the posts in place before the snow flies.

* Flower beds: Flower beds add beauty to your yard, but they can accomplish so much more. Wide beds along property lines can create a privacy buffer between you and the rest of the world and increase the curb appeal of your home. Preparing the bed in the fall means less dirt work in the spring, so you can spend that time getting plants in the ground. The good news is, if you decide you want the bed to be bigger, you can just rent a walk-behind skid steer and get the job done quickly.

* Fire pit: Nothing’s better than sitting around the fire with friends and loved ones. Fire pits are the ideal fall project because you can start enjoying it almost right away. Whether you add to an existing patio or start new, renting a cement mixer and a paver saw for custom-fitted pieces can help you create a functional new feature in just a weekend or two.

Ricordiamo che in Italia non esiste una legge che regolamenta e garantisce la pratica del Naturismo nei luoghi pubblici. oggi ci sono 5 spiagge Naturiste ufficialmente autorizzate dalle amministrazioni locali, mentre una serie di altre spiagge libere la pratica del Naturismo è tollerata poichè presidiate dalle Associazioni Naturiste FENAIT presenti sul territorio italiano. Nel link troveretè la dislocazione e modo di proporre e usufruire di luoghi dove praticare il nudismo. Ma vedremo più avanti.

Tre anni per studiare 1500 spiagge al mondo. Ecco il lavoro di Beach-Inspector.com che ha portato a stilare i migliori lidi in assoluto, divisi per categoria: ci sono quelli validi per una classica vacanza, ad esempio, o quelli da scegliere per un’atmosfera speciale. La categoria che però più di tutte attira l’attenzione è quelle delle spiagge “da wow”, ovvero le più sorprendenti, le più mozzafiato. Si va dall’Australia alla Thailandia, da Cipro alla Spagna. E tra le lingue di sabbia e il mare cristallino, spunta anche un gioiello tutto italiano. Ecco la lista delle 21 spiagge “da wow”, da vedere almeno una volta nella vita:

          Leggende e miti sul Lago di Pilato      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Il lago di Pilato è un lago di origine glaciale che si trova nel cuore dei Monti Sibillini e che presenta molte peculiarità. Nelle sue acque vive un microrganismo, il chirocefalo del Marchesoni, e il lago "scompare" in inverno per "riapparire" in estate. Ma la cosa più interessante sono le leggende che lo circondano, come quella a cui si deve il suo nome. Si narra infatti che qui sprofondò il corpo di Ponzio Pilato, reo di aver messo a morte un uomo santo e innocente, Gesù il Nazzareno. E sempre qui venivano i negromanti ad invocare il demonio.

Nella Liguria di Levante l’Unesco accende i riflettori sulle Cinque Terre, all’estrema propaggine orientale della regione. Fra i borghi ricchi di storia e salsedine, ecco Vernazza, le cui tipiche case colorate disposte intorno alla piazza principale risalgono l’anfiteatro roccioso che racchiude il porticciolo turistico già noto in epoca romana. Lo scenario è completato da due rocche saracene e da un’insolita chiesa, quella di Margherita d’Antiochia: sorge su una roccia a picco sul mare protetta da una fila di scogli e venne costruita nel 1318 in stile gotico-ligure dai maestri Antelami su un preesistente edificio, del quale resta oggi solo l’abside con decorazioni ad archetti pensili e lesene...

Presenta una pianta a quadrilatero irregolare, che racchiude un’ampia corte centrale con pozzo e con i vertici rafforzati da torrioni.

La piana di Castelluccio è famosa per la splendida fioritura che in estate ne colora i prati. Ci sono però tante suggestive leggende che circondano questo luogo che è circondato dai Monti Sibillini.

Eel Pie Island è un'isola, a Twickenheim, Londra, che ha ospitato la grande musica dai primi del '900 alla metà degli anni '70. Una storia con risvolti misteriosi, ed un epilogo ricco di arte e tranquillità. Sconosciuta alla maggior parte dei turisti e spesso anche dei residenti più giovani, negli anni '60 era considerata la woodstock della Gran Bretagna, ospitando i grandi nomi del Rock'n'Roll e le feste più alternative dell'epoca. Vibrazioni ancora palpabili su questa piccola isoletta di South London.

Poco fuori da Miami (Florida), esattamente a Homestead, è possibile ammirare un curioso parco al di fuori dal tempo, dove la protagonista è la pietra calcarea o corallo. Il Coral Castle è stato costruito dallo scultore Edward Leedskalnin, tra il 1923 e il 1951, anno della sua morte... A questo punto resta da chiedersi: perché mai una storia del genere merita di essere raccontata su queste pagine? Forse il nesso sta proprio nell’amore quasi cavalleresco che dona ad Edward, un bizzarro cavaliere contemporaneo forte ed orgoglioso, la forza e la determinazione per costruire, solo, con le proprie mani, un intero borgo per la sua amata...

          Houska, l'anticamera dell'inferno è un castello nel Centro Europa      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Occorre prestare attenzione alle questioni di religione, non importa quanto sia solida la base del proprio impero. E non intendo neanche le diverse regole etiche e comportamentali, dettate dalle culture dei diversi popoli, oggi così problematiche nel confronto tra L'Occidente ed il mondo Musulmano. Proprio così: c'è stata un'epoca in cui l'Europa stessa, in ogni suo più remoto recesso, si è ritrovata ad ardere per la fiamma di un simile conflitto. Da una parte il Cattolicesimo, tutelato da una delle figure più potenti che fossero mai vissute fino a quel momento. E dall'altra i dettami della dottrina Protestante, fondata sul presupposto che all'umanità non servisse un vicario, o un clero centralizzato a Roma, per potersi interfacciare con Dio. E tale figura era, come l'avremmo definita oggi, il Presidente di tutti, ovvero colui che sedeva sul seggio asburgico, alla testa del Sacro Romano Impero. Era il 1617, quando alla morte del sovrano illuminato Rodolfo II ormai da tempo malato, ebbe accesso alla carica il fratello minore Mattia, ardente sostenitore della controriforma. Il quale, come uno dei suoi primi atti di governante, tolse i privilegi e la libertà di culto che il suo predecessore aveva concesso ai nobili del regno di Boemia, vietando severamente la costruzione di alcune cappelle sui terreni appartenenti al re. Risultato: un serpeggiante scontento che avrebbe portato, nel giro di poco più di un anno, verso uno dei conflitti più lunghi e devastanti della storia, in un certo senso antefatto delle future guerre mondiali. Dopo la stranamente incruenta defenestrazione di Praga, evento in cui due governatori imperiali vennero gettati da nobili locali da un'altezza di 10 metri del castello cittadino, sopra un soffice cumulo di letame, la pace appariva semplicemente impossibile, e la via diplomatica abbandonata. Così tra i membri della coalizione anti-asburgica figurò anche, incidentalmente, il regno di Svezia, famoso per la sua propensione ad organizzare vasti corpi di spedizione, composti in parte da mercenari, verso svariati territori di quella che sarebbe stata chiamata dagli storici, a posteriori, la guerra dei trent'anni. Tali manipoli del resto, non importa quale fosse lo schieramento di appartenenza, raramente erano composti di brave persone, o in altri termini guerrieri che rispettassero le convenzioni del codice cavalleresco. Come nel caso di Oront, un famoso condottiero di quella nazionalità che era solito saccheggiare villaggi, rubare i pochi averi dei contadini, e lasciare che i propri uomini si sfogassero sulla parte femminile...

          Buonalbergo, il paese dei mitici mazzamaurielli      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Buonalbergo si pensa che sia stata fondata da alcuni profughi degli antichi villaggi di Mondingo, Pescolatro e Faiella distrutti dai Barbari. I quali profughi ospitati dai Cenobiti della vicina chiesa di S. Maria, sorta sulle rovine di un tempio pagano, avrebbero chiamato quel luogo Alibergo. Si presuppone sia avvenuto intorno all’anno Mille. Sotto gli Angioini quella contea fu frantumata in pena per aver parteggiato con gli Svevi. Sotto gli Svevi fece parte del giustizierato di Principato Ultra, quindi passò successivamente ai Baroni di Tocco, ai Mansella[4], ai Macedonio, ai De Sabran, ai Guevara, agli Spinelli col titolo di marchesi (1623) ed ai Coscia. Il paese prima sorgeva a valle, poi per essere stato danneggiato da una frana fu riedificato in alto verso il 1525.

Si affaccia sul golfo di Napoli e ne è una delle sue zone più suggestive. Come un antico borgo nel cuore della città vecchia, San Ferdinando, il più antico quartiere del capoluogo campano, si stende tra quelli di Chiaia, nella zona verso il mare, Montecalvario verso il centro, e nella parte più alta verso il Vomero. Un groviglio di strade e caratteristici vicoli, piazze e piazzette, tra botteghe e negozi, caffè e locali, pizzerie e ristoranti. In ogni suo angolo si respira la tipica aria della Napoli più pittoresca e suggestiva, quella che si affaccia sul lungomare fino a piazza Vittoria, che giunge fino a piazza Municipio scendendo per Trinità degli Spagnoli fino alla vitale e mondana via Toledo...

Castelseprio, in provincia di Varese, nella Lombardia più verdeggiante, sorse all'inizio del IV secolo d.C. come accampamento militare, definito in latino castrum, lungo la Via Como-Novara, allo scopo di difendere i confini sulle Prealpi. Durante il regno di Teodorico, re degli Ostrogoti, furono costruite le mura difensive del baluardo di Torba, la casa torre, la Basilica di San Giovanni Evangelista, e il Battistero di San Giovanni Battista.

Questa è una storia della quale non ci sono documenti scritti ma molti, fin troppi, riferimenti storici a persone e fatti realmente accaduti. A cominciare dalle origini della bella Gavina (o Gavia), ovvero figlia del re Merovingio, Clodomiro. In realtà Clodomiro ebbe tre figli, Teobaldo, Guntari e Clodoaldo, e non vi è nessun documento che parla di una figlia ma questa poteva essere il frutto di una relazione illegittima, una “ius primae noctis”, o una adozione, data la bellezza e la grazia di quella bambina che, vuole la leggenda, sia stata la figlia prediletta del regnante, il quale si vantava del coraggio e della determinazione della giovane a scapito del carattere pavido e insicuro dei suoi figli. Infatti, alla morte del padre, i tre figli non seppero governare e il regno cadde nelle mani degli zii, Childeberto e Clotario. Per salvarsi, uno dei tre figli divenne frate, mentre gli altri due vennero "fatti sparire"...

I castelli sono il segno dei borghi. Un paese si costruiva perché bisognava difendersi e in un certo senso isolarsi. Il castello sigla queste necessità. Oggi abbiamo un'idea romantica dei paesi e dei borghi. Una volta le prerogative di difesa erano preponderanti. Una storia in gran parte ancora da conoscere. Una storia che, specie al Sud, segue le dominazioni subite in questa parte della penisola. Furono soprattutto i Longobardi a volere i paesi così, attorno alle alture...

          Ad Alfonsine il Labirinto unico al Mondo. Visitabile per tutta l’estate, fino a metà settembre, poi verrà “cancellato      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Per tutta l&rsquo;estate, fino a met&agrave; settembre dalle 16 alle 22, ad Alfonsine (RA) sar&agrave; possibile visitare anche per il 2018 un&rsquo;opera assolutamente unica a livello nazionale e internazionale. Si tratta del Labiritno Effimero, uno dei pi&ugrave; grandi d&rsquo;Europa con i suoi 70.000 mq di superficie e 3 chilometri di sentieri, che da qualche anno a questa parte ha acquisito anche la connotazione di &ldquo;dinamico&rdquo;, che lo rende l&rsquo;unico al Mondo per dimensioni. Effimero perch&eacute; &egrave; costruito all&rsquo;interno di un campo di mais, percui la sua &ldquo;vita&rdquo; &egrave; quella legata al ciclo naturale di questa pianta. Dimanico in quanto all&rsquo;interno del labirinto sono presenti delle porte che possono essere chiuse da chi le attraversa, &ldquo;costringendo&rdquo; in tal modo a far cambiare percorso a chi li segue. Il titolo di questa edizione 2018 &egrave; &ldquo;Meridia&rdquo; &laquo;Essere tempo con la propria ombra. Ombra che detta legge nell&rsquo;inesorabile trascorrere della vita, nei meandri di questo labirinto. Cos&igrave; le replicanti ombre di Meridiane, che incontreremo, saranno insolute nella determinazione di spazio-tempo. Nell&rsquo; impari lotta con il tempo, scandito dal sole e dai culti agrari dimenticati dell&rsquo;uomo, meridiane e antichi aratri in questo luogo si tramutano in unici strumenti di archeoastronomia&raquo;. Cos&igrave; il costruttore di labirinti Luigi Berardi, che dal 2010 contribuisce a creare l&rsquo;opera assieme a Carlo Galassi, dell&rsquo;omonima azienda agricola sulla quale sorge il Labirinto di Alfonsine, introduce l&rsquo;edizione 2018. Un po&rsquo; di storia del Labirinto di Alfonsine. Il primo, &ldquo;piccolo&rdquo;, labirinto effimero nel campo di mais &egrave; stato realizzato da Carlo Galassi nel 2007. Labirinto che gi&agrave; nel 2008 e 2009 era cresciuto superando i 40.000 mq e potendosi vantare del titolo di primo labirinto effimero d&rsquo;Italia. Nel 2010 l&rsquo;incontro fra Galassi e Luigi Berardi, noto artista e punto di riferimento per il disegno di labirinti anche a livello internazionale, che di anno in anno hanno poi collaborato per connotare i labirinti con tematiche sempre pi&ugrave; profonde e complesse: &ldquo;La Ruota del tempo&rdquo; (2010, 60.000 mq che l&rsquo;ha reso anche il pi&ugrave; grande d&rsquo;Europa, fino al 2014); &ldquo;Il Basilisco&rdquo; (2011, 80.000 mq), &ldquo;L&rsquo;alba dell&rsquo;uomo&rdquo; (2012, 80.000 mq), &ldquo;Il volo dell&rsquo;ape regina&rdquo; (2013, 80.000 mq) &ldquo;Metamorfosi&rdquo; (2014, arrivando addirittura a 10.000 mq) e &ldquo;L&rsquo;albero della vita&rdquo; (2015, 10.000 mq). Nel 2016 inizia poi una nuova avventura con i labirinti effimeri e dimanici: &ldquo;Sentieri Peregrini&rdquo;, &ldquo;Sospesi tra terra e cielo&rdquo; (2017). Per chi lo vorr&agrave;, sar&agrave; possibile anche cenare direttamente al Labirinto, sempre pi&ugrave; attrazzato anche da questo punto di vista, fra aree picnic, barbecue e, da quest&rsquo;anno, anche agriturismo. Il labirinto si trova nell&rsquo;Azienda agricola Galassi Carlo (via Roma, 111) ad Alfonsine (RA). Il costo dell&rsquo;ingresso al labirinto &egrave; di &euro; 9 adulti, &euro; 5bambini (fino a 12 anni). Info e prenotazioni al n&deg;. 335 8335233

Un compassionevole tributo dal cielo. C’è chi dice che, quando scocca la mezzanotte, guardando le finestre del castello di Duino avvolto nel manto oscuro della notte, si possa scorgere il passare lento di un candelabro acceso.

Il libro che proponiamo alla vostra lettura in questo numero della rivista, L’ordine del tempo di Carlo Rovelli, parla del tempo mettendo in discussione molte delle nostre credenze, come quella che il tempo scorra uniformemente dappertutto. In realtà, non c’è spazio, non c’è tempo, non c’è distinzione tra passato e futuro, tra memoria e speranza. Visto con gli occhi di uno scienziato, di un fisico che lavora sulla gravità quantistica, il mondo appare “di una bellezza arida, tersa e inquietante”. Non c’è durata, non c’è salvezza e la paura della morte è solo un incidente dell’evoluzione. La nostra visione della realtà assomiglia a un delirio collettivo: abbiamo dato organizzazione a un mondo che non è quello che sembra, perché il nostro sguardo su di esso è miope. La vera realtà sono le nostre emozioni, quello che sentiamo, gridiamo, proviamo, amiamo. Tra il canto e il grido passa la nostra vita, e che sia un canto, più che un grido, che sia bellezza, che sia amore, è quanto possiamo augurarci. È ciò a cui dobbiamo tendere...

Viaggiare è anche, ma soprattutto, benessere. Cresce la voglia e tendenza di trovare nella vacanza spazi per la propria persona e per rifocillare il proprio spirito. Viaggiare per cercare se stessi, non è proprio una novità dell'ultimo giorno. E soprattutto seguire il Cammino di Santiago. Capitale della Galizia è da sempre meta di pellegrinaggio. Oggi vive una nuova giovinezza. Sono sempre più le persone che scelgono di fare viaggi, se non strettamente religiosi, però si volti alla spiritual....

Il fenicottero rosa è stato senza dubbio l’icona dell’estate passata, e valeva tutto: non solo il gonfiabile, ma anche costumi, teli mare, camicie ed espadrillas. Sarà l’emblema estivo anche di quest’anno? Di certo, se pubblicare una foto su Instagram con l’iconico gonfiabile (come hanno fatto molte star) per voi non è abbastanza, c’è una spiaggia ad Aruba in cui potete fotografarvi proprio accanto ai fenicotteri rosa. Sì, quelli veri. Si tratta del Flamingo Beach ed è una spiaggia privata di Renaissance Island, un atollo artificiale dei Caraibi realizzato dal resort Renaissance Aruba & Casino Hotel ed accessibile quindi solo agli ospiti dell’albergo.

          Eventi nei borghi da non perdere a giugno 2018: concerti, festival e sagre di inizio estate      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Quando inizia giugno non possiamo non pensare all'estate. Le giornate si fanno più lunghe, l'aria si riscalda dolcemente e non fa troppo caldo, e si spera sempre faccia bel tempo, per poter ricominciare a stare fuori più a lungo, all'aria aperta. Gli eventi di giugno hanno sempre questo non so che di "fuori", di "aria aperta", e il desiderio di recuperare quegli spazi dei quali in inverno non si può godere appieno. Questo nostro primo approccio agli eventi del sesto mese dell'anno parte da tre categorie di appuntamenti, le più adatte alla stagione, quelle che ci invitano a rimanere fuori più a lungo, a goderci anche quella brezza fresca della sera, che già profuma d'estate. Stiamo parlando di concerti, festival e naturalmente, sagre di paese. Parlando di concerti, a giugno notiamo con piacere che anche grandi nomi come Fausto Leali, Jeff Beck, Tom Walker, Elio e le Storie Tese, gli Interpol, the Dream Syndacate, Nek e Max Renga, hanno scelto i borghi per i loro live. Anche da segnalare Borghi Swing a Marano Lagunare durante la manifestazione Udin&Jazz. Per quanto riguarda i festival, invece, è da segnalare quest'anno la partecipazione di circa 200 borghi alla Notte Romantica de I Borghi Più Belli d'Italia, in programma la sera del 23 giugno. Saranno dunque moltissimi quelli che si trasformeranno in piccoli angoli romantici in grado di offrire dolci momenti agli innamorati. Per chi cerca invece serate più particolari e sentieri meno battuti, tra i festival nei borghi troviamo anche il curioso Occultus Dark Festival, la notte dei Briganti e una serie di palii per stuzzicare quella voglia di gara mista a tradizione. Infine, parliamo di sagre, della buona cucina e di sapori da scoprire. Saranno molti i prodotti tipici e i percorsi enogastronomici che allieteranno le giornate e le serate nei borghi: dal melone precoce alla ciliegia, dal polletto ruspante sardo alle pappardelle al cinghiale del Lazio, dalle fragole alle amarene, dalla polenta taragna al pesce... e vino... tanto vino. Prepariamoci quindi ad un mese ricco di sorprese perchè gli eventi di giugno saranno davvero tanti!...

          Infiorata del Corpus Domini a Castelraimondo (MC) dal 1 al 3 giugno 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Quando il colpo d&rsquo;occhio vale tutto un week end! Dove? A Castelraimondo, nell&rsquo;entroterra maceratese, dal 1&deg; al 3 giugno, allorch&eacute; un&rsquo;esplosione di colori inonder&agrave; la via principale dell&rsquo;operosa cittadina marchigiana con un percorso costellato di immagini del sacro di grande impatto emozionale. Stiamo parlando dell&rsquo;Infiorata del Corpus Domini, una celebrazione collettiva e comunitaria di arte, manualit&agrave;, spiritualit&agrave; e lavoro di squadra. Dietro a questo rito ancestrale c&rsquo;&egrave; il lavoro di oltre venti associazioni che, per mesi e mesi, elaborano e progettano il suggestivo evento. Negli ultimi giorni, poi, l&rsquo;attivit&agrave; subisce un&rsquo;accelerazione, s&rsquo;intensifica l&rsquo;opera di selezione e preparazione di petali e fiori che andranno a comporre gli incredibili mosaici adagiati lungo la via. L&rsquo;immagine complessiva dell&rsquo;Infiorata, ancor pi&ugrave; suggestiva se gustata in notturno, &egrave; quella di un grandioso set cinematografico a cielo aperto nel quale, come altrettante scene di un film, si sussegue una fantasmagorica serie di &ldquo;fotogrammi&rdquo; in formato gigante, ogni anno completamente diversa da quella dell&rsquo;edizione precedente. La sera del primo giugno, un vibrante fermento pervade &ldquo;il luogo&rdquo; dove vengono man mano composte caleidoscopiche gigantografie multiformi. Al lavoro, contemporaneamente e in maniera frenetica, centinaia di volontari che partecipano alla realizzazione dei &ldquo;quadri&rdquo; visibili, quest&rsquo;anno per la prima volta, nelle intere giornate di sabato e domenica. L&rsquo;Infiorata del Corpus Domini &egrave; un&rsquo;occasione unica per immergersi totalmente in un mondo che ha i suoi fili conduttori nel colore e nella biodiversit&agrave;. Infatti, negli esercizi aderenti al circuito &ldquo;di fiore in fiore&rdquo; sar&agrave; possibile assaggiare, per l&rsquo;intera settimana, proposte enogastronomiche a tema floreale. Gi&agrave; nella serata di gioved&igrave; uno speciale evento accompagner&agrave; il taglio dei fiori prescelti, mentre il venerd&igrave; la realizzazione dei &ldquo;tappeti fioriti&rdquo; sar&agrave; accompagnata dal Festival Internazionale del Folklore. Spettacoli musicali di vario genere faranno da colonna sonora alla manifestazione per tutto il fine settimana. Inoltre, sar&agrave; allestito un originale mercatino dedicato proprio al fiore, in tutte le sue variopinte sfaccettature.

          In partenza per l'estero? Guida pratica al cambio valuta      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
In linea di massima il primo suggerimento per chi viaggia è quello di limitare i contanti: a meno che non stiate andando a comprare qualcosa nella classica bancarella che non possiede un POS per il bancomat, in genere i vari negozi, ristoranti ed hotel di tutto il mondo sono piuttosto attrezzati a livello di pagamento online. La cosa ideale, in questi casi, sarebbe quella di sfruttare una delle tante carte prepagate che è possibile acquistare anche direttamente online, ovviamente procurandosela per tempo rispetto alla partenza. Attenzione che, a seconda del tipo di carta che utilizzate, la banca potrebbe applicare delle commissioni (ad esempio del 2%) su ogni prelievo che effettuate, per cui è opportuno sapere prima anche questo e limitare per quanto possibile il numero di prelievi, se si desidera risparmiare.

Keukenhof è il famosissimo parco botanico dove decine di migliaia di tulipani fanno bella mostra di sé durante i mesi primaverili. L'esplosione di colori di questo posto lascia tutti senza fiato, purtroppo quest'anno a causa del burian freddo a fine marzo solo una piccola parte dei fiori era già sbocciata riducendo di molto l'effetto scenico. La cittadina di Leiden invece è molto graziosa e godibile durante tutto l'anno grazie agli scorci pittoreschi sui canali e ai tanti edifici storici che ne abbelliscono la città vecchia.

          Bled, lago da sogno nel cuore d'Europa      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
In Slovenia esiste una leggenda che parla della collera della natura e di coloro che vivono a stretto contatto con essa, perfetti alleati contro l'avanzare spregiudicato della modernità. La cronologia di questo evento, così come i personaggi coinvolti, si perdono nelle nebbie del tempo, come anche l'originario narratore, molto probabilmente appartenente alla tradizione orale, che trasmise per primo l'eccezionale vicenda. Secondo costui arrivò un'epoca in cui le personalità nobiliari della zona al confine con l'Austria, nei pressi della catena montuosa Caravanche, si erano impossessati di alcuni terreni usati dagli abitanti del posto per far pascolare le pecore e in determinate occasioni, celebrare importanti ricorrenze con delle danze. Ingiuriati da tale sopruso, quindi, gli uomini e le donne di Bled si radunarono nella piazza del paese, per pregare intensamente nella speranza di ottenere la propria liberazione. Ma a rispondere ai loro richiami, inaspettatamente, non fu la vergine Maria bensì l'antica dea pagana Živa, che prima ancora di raddrizzare un torto, pensò all'ora della vendetta: chiamato il grande ghiacciaio dalla cima del monte Pokljuka, lo fece scendere a valle poi lo squagliò, causando un'ondata di marea capace di spazzare via i possedimenti indesiderati. Allo scopo di risparmiare la singola abitazione di un vecchio bonario, tuttavia, l'acqua deviò attorno a un singolo promontorio, formando l'isola al centro del lago che resiste tutt'ora.

          How I gained commit access to Homebrew in 30 minutes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This issue was publicly disclosed on the Homebrew blog at https://brew.sh/2018/08/05/security-incident-disclosure/

Since the recent NPM, RubyGems, and Gentoo incidents, I’ve become increasingly interested, and concerned, with the potential for package managers to be used in supply chain attacks to distribute malicious software. Specifically with how the maintainers and infrastructure of these projects can be targeted as an attack vector.

On Jun 31st, I went in with the intention of seeing if I could gain access to Homebrew’s GitHub repositories. About 30 minutes later, I made my first commit to Homebrew/homebrew-core.

Let’s get leaky

My initial strategy going in was based on credential theft; find if there were any credentials leaked by members of the Homebrew GitHub org.

An OSSINT tool from Michael Henriksen called gitrob makes automating this search really easy. I ran it across the Homebrew organization, but ultimately didn’t come up with anything interesting.

Next, I took a look at previously disclosed issues on https://hackerone.com/Homebrew. From there, I found that Homebrew runs a Jenkins instance that’s (intentionally) publicly exposed at https://jenkins.brew.sh.

After some digging, I noticed something interesting; builds in the “Homebrew Bottles” project were making authenticated pushes to the BrewTestBot/homebrew-core repo:

This got me thinking, “where are the credentials stored?”. I noticed the “Environment Variables” link on the left, which led to an exposed GitHub API token:

I tested it locally to see what scopes the token had:

$ curl https://api.github.com/user/repos -u $GITHUB_API_TOKEN:x-oauth-basic | jq '.[] | {repo: .full_name, permissions: .permissions}'
{
  "repo": "BrewTestBot/homebrew-core",
  "permissions": {
    "admin": true,
    "push": true,
    "pull": true
  }
}
{
  "repo": "Homebrew/brew",
  "permissions": {
    "admin": false,
    "push": true,
    "pull": true
  }
}
{
  "repo": "Homebrew/formulae.brew.sh",
  "permissions": {
    "admin": false,
    "push": true,
    "pull": true
  }
}
{
  "repo": "Homebrew/homebrew-core",
  "permissions": {
    "admin": false,
    "push": true,
    "pull": true
  }
}

Which suggested that I had commit access to these core Homebrew repos:

  • Homebrew/brew
  • Homebrew/homebrew-core
  • Homebrew/formulae.brew.sh

Just to make sure, I tested this by creating a blob in the Homebrew/homebrew-core repo:

$ curl https://api.github.com/repos/Homebrew/homebrew-core/git/blobs -u $GITHUB_API_TOKEN:x-oauth-basic -d '{"content":"test"}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"
{
  "sha": "30d74d258442c7c65512eafab474568dd706c430",
  "url": "https://api.github.com/repos/Homebrew/homebrew-core/git/blobs/30d74d258442c7c65512eafab474568dd706c430"
}

And then subsequently reported the issue to the Homebrew maintainers.

What this means

Let me put this in perspective:

  • Hundreds of thousands of people use Homebrew, including employees at some of the biggest companies in Silicon Valley.
  • The most frequently installed package in the last 30 days is openssl, which was installed over 500k times: https://formulae.brew.sh/analytics/install/30d/
  • I had direct commit access to the Homebrew/homebrew-core repo. At the time, this repo did not have a protected master branch, meaning I would have been able to make a fast-forward change to refs/heads/master. Anyone that freshly installed Homebrew, or ran brew update would have my malicious formulae.

If I were a malicious actor, I could have made a small, likely unnoticed change to the openssl formulae, placing a backdoor on any machine that installed it.

If I can gain access to commit in 30 minutes, what could a nation-state with dedicated resources achieve against a team of 17 volunteers? How many private company networks could be accessed? How many of these could be used to escalate to large-scale data breaches? What other package management systems have similar weaknesses?

This is my growing concern, and it’s been proven time and time again that package managers, and credential leaks, are a weak point in the security of the internet, and that supply chain attacks are a real and persistent threat. This is not a weakness in Homebrew, but rather a systemic problem in the industry, and one where we need more security research.

What’s being done

Homebrew has publicly disclosed the issue on the blog at https://brew.sh/2018/08/05/security-incident-disclosure/. The Homebrew team worked with GitHub to audit and ensured that the given access token wasn’t used maliciously, and didn’t make any unexpected commits to the core Homebrew repos. I want to give special thanks to Mike McQuaid for his quick and professional handling of my report while on his paternity leave.

It’s clear that there’s a lot of work that could be done to improve the security of the Homebrew project. If you use Homebrew at your place of work, consider asking them to donate to the project. As an industry, we need to invest in the well being of core OSS software that we all use and depend on.

You know how easy it was to create this edit? It took exactly a screenshot,crop,and a post! I didn’t even have to create it...because this girl is lazy and stole it from @flashyfangirl_16 , but that’s okay because I don’t have to ask permission, because she’s MY sister and she won’t care!

THURSDAY 8/9-MONDAY 8/13

PERSEIDS METEOR SHOWER
Arkansas State Parks (and anywhere else it’s dark).

It’s August, and that means it’s time again to look up and see the Perseids. The meteor shower is one of the most satisfying star show of the year, with around 100 shooting stars (but at times double that this year, what’s called an “outburst”). Peak viewing time for folks who’ve found a dark spot away from light pollution is between midnight and dawn Sunday, Aug. 12, according to NASA, but the Perseids put on a show up to and after that peak. As a plus, the moon will be new this weekend, thus providing a darker sky. Arkansas State Parks has organized a Perseids Meteor Shower Palooza: In Central Arkansas, see the stars from the middle of Lake Maumelle with a guided boat cruise from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday departing from Jolly Roger’s Marina ($12 adults, $6 children), and there will be free viewing from the beach 10 p.m.-midnight Monday at Woolly Hollow State Park in Greenbrier. In Southwest Arkansas, DeGray Lake State Park has scheduled a number of family events: kayak viewing from the lake from 7:30 p.m.-9:45 p.m. Thursday-Sunday ($15 adults, $10 children); a Perseids Meteor Safari on the golf course from 8:45 p.m.-9:45 p.m. Saturday and Sunday ($10 adults, $5 children); and the Night Owl Perseids Prowl Cruise from 10:30 p.m.-11:45 p.m. Saturday ($12 adults, $6 children). Check the State Parks calendar for other nighttime hikes this weekend, too. So what’s a meteor? We’re glad you asked. They’re icy space rocks from the Comet Swift-Tuttle that burn up when they hit our atmosphere, making for lovely streaks of light across the heavens. Reserve for Maumelle at 868-5806 and DeGray Lake at 865-5850. LNP

THURSDAY 8/9

TELEKINETIC YETI

9 p.m. White Water Tavern. $8.

The duo Telekinetic Yeti is a medley of unlikely juxtapositions: It's just not that often that the word "duo" accompanies anything described as "stoner doom metal," let alone with the geographical qualifier "from Dubuque, Iowa." Check out album closer "Himalayan Hymn" from 2017's "Abominable" for a good example of how much sonic territory two dudes from The Hawkeye State can cover in 5 1/2 minutes. They're on tour with Kansas City heavy-rock barn-burners Hyborian, and joined on the bill by locals Fred and Shoe. SS

FRIDAY 8/10

STEPHEN CHOPEK

8 p.m. The Undercroft.

The first thing that caught my ear about Stephen Chopek wasn't so much what he'd done as who he'd done it with — as drummer for a few faves: Pimps of Joytime, Shannon McNally, Amy LaVere. In "Radio Caroline," those percussion propers reveal themselves in the perfect chug of his strumming, but the text — a true tale of an off-shore pirate radio station that broadcast from the open seas in the early 1960s to thwart BBC's regulations and broadcast monopoly — sounds more like a Pete Seeger tune than a Pimps jam, and it's well tailored for a tiny, underground listening room like The Undercroft. Bring along some cash to throw in for the Undercroft-brewed beer on hand, or for the 45 RPM vinyl with Chopek's "Radio Caroline" opposite "The Ballad of Cash & Dean." SS


FRIDAY 8/10

2ND FRIDAY ART NIGHT

5-8 p.m., downtown galleries.

The Butler Center galleries have adopted a new name: They'll now be called the Galleries at Library Square, so you'll know they're part of the Central Arkansas Library System. Now we've got that squared away, let's move on to the art: The new show there is from the Butler Center's collection of artworks and artifacts from the WWII Japanese-American internment camps at Rohwer and Jerome. "A Matter of Mind and Heart: Portraits of Japanese American Identity" will feature Henry Sugimoto's "Arrival at Jerome," on loan from Hendrix College in Conway. (Sugimoto was still interned when, with the help of Hendrix art professor Louis Freund, he first exhibited his work at Hendrix.) Also at the Galleries at Library Square is an exhibition of work by the Brewer art dynasty: Nicholas, Adrian and Edward. River Market Books and Gifts (nee the Cox Creative Center), has also gotten a new name: It's now The Bookstore at Library Square. There, David Carpenter will perform live his gravity-defying video piece in the "Delta des Refuses" show. Over at the Historic Arkansas Museum, which is still the Historic Arkansas Museum, 2nd Friday will open "Space Between Teeth: Linda Lopez + Marc Mitchell" and MarQuis & Mood will provide the music. By making a donation to The Van, the nonprofit group that helps the unsheltered, Bella Vita will knock 20 percent off anything purchased at the artisan jewelry shop at 523 S. Louisiana St., and there will be beer from Lost Forty as encouragement. See art made live at Gallery 221, where artists and patrons will create a 60-by-60-inch triptych, "Healing Hands," and hold an auction to benefit the Children's Advocacy Centers of Arkansas. The Courtyard by Marriott will feature works by the members of the Art Group, Matt McLeod Fine Art is showing the Arkansas League of Artists "Members Show," and it's Movie Night at the Old State House Museum, with free popcorn, candy, soft drinks, beer and wine. LNP

FRIDAY 8/10

TIFFANY

7 p.m. Park Plaza Mall. Donations of two canned goods.

In July 1988, pop singer Tiffany Darwish had a piano power ballad, "Could've Been," in heavy rotation on the radio. What it could've been, at least chronologically speaking, was the denouement of the star-crossed love story that she sang about the year before, with a drum machine-heavy remake of Tommy James and the Shondells' 1967 chart-topper "I Think We're Alone Now." Also in July 1988: What was once an open-air shopping center reopened as Park Plaza Mall in midtown Little Rock, bolstered and bookended by a double dose of Dillard's, the department store headquartered here in Little Rock. To celebrate the anniversary, Darwish — better known by her first-name mononym Tiffany — will put on a free concert in the mall parking lot near the corner of Markham Street and University Avenue. Organizers are steadfastly committed to the theme; a Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle (Michelangelo, specifically — the Miss Congeniality and self-identifying "party dude" of the TMNT personality quadrant) and a Hello Kitty character will be in attendance, and the mall's Sephora is booking appointments for full-face '80s makeovers. See Park Plaza Mall's Facebook page for the details, and bring along two canned goods for a drive called CANstruction, benefiting the Arkansas Foodbank. SS

FRIDAY 8/10

AMASA HINES, DOT, OR: BENEFIT FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION

9:30 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

What connects the three bands on this fundraising bill isn't essentially musical — they're as sonically disparate as the summer days are long — but kinetic. Amasa Hines' slow builds, alternately sparse and urgent; Or's mechanized, trance-like foreboding; and DOT's driving, beachy punk rock are all energies used for good here, benefiting the Arkansas chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This one will sell out. Get tickets at lastchancerecords.us. SS

SATURDAY 8/11

RICKY SKAGGS

7 p.m. Pulaski Technical College, Center for Humanities and Arts. $35-$120.

They played it like a gag in 1961, scripting a 7-year-old kid to come up and tug on the hem of Lester Flatt's suit jacket in the middle of the Martha White-sponsored Flatt & Scruggs variety show. Instead of a punchline, though, a dapper Ricky Skaggs approached the microphone and peeled out "Foggy Mountain Special" on the mandolin, following it up with "Ruby" in his west Kentucky drawl, singing lyrics he was too young to embody: "I was sittin' in the shade/with a shovel and my spade/diggin' in the ground gold mine/Ruby, Ruby/Honey, are you mad at your man?" His stagecraft has assuredly caught up to his virtuosity; back then, he ran out of camera frame before the audience had a chance to applaud him. Now, he's accustomed to multiple standing ovations like the ones he and his band Kentucky Thunder got at the Ryman Auditorium last week. He's been a bluegrass traditionalist when it was cool, he's been a bluegrass traditionalist when it wasn't, and he's been a bluegrass traditionalist in some unlikely collaborations, throwing his mandolin into the mix with Phish, Ry Cooder, on Arkansas native Erin Enderlin's 2017 record "Whiskeytown Crier." He also lent his talents to a campaign event for Jason Rapert in 2014 — why, Ricky, why? Earlier this year, Skaggs was honored with an induction to the Country Music Hall of Fame — years too late, Garth Brooks and others would claim. He'll play at UAPTC just a few weeks before accepting yet another title as an inductee to the 2018 International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame. Get tickets at uaptc.edu/charts. SS

SATURDAY 8/11

'MADE' reception

6-9 p.m. Boswell Mourot Fine Art.

Four great Arkansas artists in one place: That's what Boswell Mourot has going through Sept. 1. Matthew Lopas, associate professor of art at Hendrix College, sees the world through a fish-eye lens, his interiors and landscapes distorted into swirling panoramas. Alice Andrews paints the waterfalls and rocky outcrops of her Ozarks home with soft shapes of blue-greens and warm browns. In this show, Dennis McCann, a retired firefighter and winner of multiple awards for his pastels, uses complementary shades of orange and aquamarine to capture abstract underpinnings in representation. Eleanor Dickinson is an artist whose work we just don't see enough of: Gorgeous washes combined with drawing and abstracted architectural features, her take, perhaps Paul Klee-inspired, on places she's been. Matthew, Alice, Dennis and Eleanor — MADE of special stuff. LNP

SATURDAY 8/11

FOUL PLAY CABARET

10 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

Two weeks ago, when Foul Play Cabaret brought "The Modern Show" to a one-time brothel on Bathhouse Row in downtown Hot Springs called Maxine's, a young man apologized to me for having stopped so suddenly in my direct sight lines, frozen and presumably stultified by the magnetism between Violet D'Vine and Rosa Lee Bloom during a particularly intense duet. He'd come to hang out and maybe throw some darts and, I think, was surprised to find a burlesque show going on — and surprised at its thrust. "I thought cabaret was, like, the girls in the line kicking their legs up," he explained later on, mimicking a Rockettes routine with his fingers. That night, eschewing the tried-and-true Alberto Vargas pin-up incarnate aesthetic the burlesque troupe channels beautifully and often, Foul Play's dancers twirled and somersaulted instead to FKA Twigs and Katy Perry. Ruby Lead did an entire act using only a crimson swath of fabric and her jet black locks to create mesmerizing geometry, Jezebelle Jaxx revived an entire audience's commitment to yoga class and Doris Night opened the evening with a magnificently technicolor Sally Rand, her wrists twirling two enormous feather fans in time with the throbbing bass beats. It's artful and sex-positive and immaculately prepared and rehearsed, and the cost of admission is a fraction of what lounges in metropoli like Vegas and Paris are charging for shows of the same rank. If you can't catch them in this Capitol View/Stifft Station legend of a bar, consider attending the ensemble's return to Maxine's in Hot Springs on Saturday, Aug. 18, when they'll put up "Foul Play Loves the '80s," complete with hair scrunchies, leg warmers, a spandex routine called "Aerobics with Violet" and a guest appearance from Dallas dancer Vivienne Vermuth. SS

TUESDAY 8/14

GODSMACK, SHINEDOWN

7 p.m. Verizon Arena. $40-$100.

If you hated Godsmack for sounding too much like Metallica or Alice in Chains: Good news! They sound different now. That is to say, new tunes like "Bulletproof" have more of a "commercial aspect," lead singer Sully Erna told the video series FaceCulture last year. He's right, in a way; there's more melody and less of the tortured guitar crunch that became synonymous with the words "nu metal" during the band's mid-'90s rise. Then again, can anybody who penned a soundtrack for a slice of "The Mummy" franchise claim he didn't have a commercial aspect to begin with? Erna and his crew mix that new sound with the stuff that's been the bread and butter of KDJE-FM, 100.3 ("The Edge"), for at least a decade, and they're here with fellow hard rock radio staples Shinedown who, despite anthems like "45," never took to the "nu metal" vibe wholeheartedly enough to have trouble shaking it off.

          Clear Bags Are Your New Super Functional, Tailgate-Ready Essential       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

If I know a thing or two about style, it's that the trends are always changing, but one trend has really made an impact this summer: the clear bag. It seems like everywhere we look there's yet another see-through purse. If you somehow haven't seen these, clear bags range from straight up plastic shopping bags to this thicker, transparent material. They're the perfect opp to highlight your accessories within an accessory, and because the trend is still newer to those of us who aren't celebs or influencers, it feels fresh, rather than overdone.

My take? I dig it. Clear bags feel fashion-forward and obviously edgy. I think it's definitely worth finding one, especially an affordable one (don't worry, we've got you covered), and giving the trend a shot for yourself. This feels like the sort of trend that won't last, so get to it before you miss out on the magic of see-through products. 

Like, tell me you don't want to pick your most beautiful beauty products and find an adorable phone case and show them off in this cutie?

The clear bag trend feels so casual and chill, and yet so Cool Girl-approved.

 

A post shared by ʏᴀsᴜᴅᴀ®︎ (@ysdgram) on

But the thing is that a lot of the clear bags I've seen seem kind of flimsy, and when you're working on a college budget, there is literally NO TIME for a bag that's going to fail you in the middle of the day. You're carrying way too much stuff to have to deal with that mess. 

So I was pretty pumped to learn about Clearware Bags, which take the clear bag trend and fine-tune it for college women. 

 

A post shared by ClearWare Bags (@clearwarebags) on

Plus, fall semester is quickly approaching and we all know what that means: It’s almost time for football season! Whether you go to every game or only make it to a couple tailgates, football season is one of the most fun times of the school year. These days, most stadiums have strict bag policies that require clear bags, which can be challenge for girls – since, after all, you probably don’t have a clear bag. Plus there’s no way you can go without a bag – you’ve got a phone, wallet, ticket, keys, makeup for touch-ups, tampons, and likely no functional pockets (thanks, women’s clothing designers).

Don’t worry, though – Clearware is here to save the day, and trust me, they have literally the most ~chic~ clear bags around.

This brand makes cute and functional clear bags out of high-quality PVC that are perfect for game days. These bags are also awesome because they’re super sturdy and can be filled with ice to keep your drink – and LBR, yourself – cool at the tailgate! Plus, they’re totally customizable – there are options for leather straps, straps in your favorite or team colors, and monogramming. Perfect for an Insta post that's on trend, and yet totally your own. 

That’s why @hercampusstyle is so excited to be partnering with Clearware for a giveaway! One lucky winner will get a Clearware bag of their very own this football season How to enter:

  1. Make sure you’re following both @hercampusstyle and @clearwarebags on Instagram.
  2. Like our giveaway post.
  3. Tag your tailgate buddy in the comments!

The winner will be chosen at the end of the weekend and contacted via DM. Good luck!

Digging this trend and how gorgeous, and yet functional, it is? Here are even more super-versatile summer pieces you kind of need in your wardrobe. We're obsessed with the fact that fashion is finally taking our actual needs into account instead of just, like, making things cute. Cute and with purpose? We're here for it. 

Want more style inspo? Follow @HerCampusStyle on Instagram, and use #MyStyleEmpowers to join a community where college fashion is extra, & also nbd.


          Flipgrid's Mobile App Now Has Basic Editing Options      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Buried in amongst the other Microsoft EDU announcements that were made this week was the news that Flipgrid's mobile app was updated.

The latest version of the Flipgrid mobile app has a basic editing function that will let students trim the beginning and or end of a video before submitting it to a grid. Additionally, the latest update to the Flipgrid added the option to use both front and rear facing cameras in a video. Students can tap the flip icon in the recorder to switch from the front to rear camera and back within the same recording. The third new feature in the app is the option for kids to switch from landscape to portrait view while recording.

Here are the links to the updated mobile apps:
Flipgrid for Android
Flipgrid for iOS
Flipgrid for Windows 10

Applications for Education
Of the new features in the Flipgrid mobile app, the option to flip between the front and rear cameras in the same video is the one that I think will be the most useful for students and teachers. Switching between those two cameras could be great for making short instructional videos in which you start by talking into the camera and then switch to showing something like a chemistry demonstration.

          Elicotteri senza la coda: un capitolo poco noto nella storia dell'aviazione      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Verso la fine della seconda guerra mondiale negli Stati Uniti, una particolare questione iniziò a diventare evidente per tutti coloro fossero coinvolti, anche soltanto in maniera passeggera, con lo sviluppo dei nuovi prototipi per l'aviazione: che i dispositivi ad ala rotante, dopo tutto, erano lì per restare che Igor Sikorsky, l'immigrato russo a capo dell'omonima compagnia, avrebbe condotto la marcia verso questo nuovo modo di vedere il volo. Decollare ed atterrare su un'imbarcazione? Trasportare rifornimenti verso il fronte di guerra? Volare a bassa quota alla ricerca di sommergibili? Tutto questo, e molto altro, diventava adesso possibile, al punto che ogni altro tentativo di applicare il concetto di STOL (decollo e atterraggio in uno spazio limitato) d'improvviso, appariva drammaticamente obsoleta. E con essi, le aziende che si erano dedicate primariamente a un tale obiettivo ingegneristico: tra tutte, la Kellett Autogiro Corporation, che a partire dagli anni '30 aveva lavorato a diverse iterazioni del concetto di un piccolo aeromobile (800, 1.000 Kg al massimo) che come meccanismo per generare portanza faceva affidamento su un rotore, mentre un secondo lo spingeva innanzi verso la destinazione selezionata. Stiamo parlando, in gergo tecnico, del cosiddetto girocottero. Perché in quale modo, altrimenti, si potrebbe prevenire la rotazione fuori controllo del mezzo non appena finisce di staccarsi da terra? Devono sempre esserci DUE rotori perfettamente sincronizzati, grazie a un complesso sistema di alberi di trasmissione, il secondo dei quali ha la mansione di contrastare la coppia di quello principale. Perciò il colpo di genio dell'uomo venuto dal freddo, tanto per usare uno stereotipo cinematografico, fu di concepire il secondo come una sorta di ventilatore sottodimensionato, posizionato a una distanza sufficiente perché il principio della leva gli permettesse di mantenere in assetto l'intero apparato. Stiamo parlando, tanto per essere chiari, del rotore di coda. Ma se vi fermate un attimo a pensarci, tra tutte le configurazioni possibili per un giro/elicottero, quella che oggi consideriamo...

PERSEIDS METEOR SHOWER
Arkansas State Parks (and anywhere else it’s dark).

It’s August, and that means it’s time again to look up and see the Perseids. The meteor shower is one of the most satisfying star show of the year, with around 100 shooting stars (but at times double that this year, what’s called an “outburst”). Peak viewing time for folks who’ve found a dark spot away from light pollution is between midnight and dawn Sunday, Aug. 12, according to NASA, but the Perseids put on a show up to and after that peak. As a plus, the moon will be new this weekend, thus providing a darker sky. Arkansas State Parks has organized a Perseids Meteor Shower Palooza: In Central Arkansas, see the stars from the middle of Lake Maumelle with a guided boat cruise from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday departing from Jolly Roger’s Marina ($12 adults, $6 children), and there will be free viewing from the beach 10 p.m.-midnight Monday at Woolly Hollow State Park in Greenbrier. In Southwest Arkansas, DeGray Lake State Park has scheduled a number of family events: kayak viewing from the lake from 7:30 p.m.-9:45 p.m. Thursday-Sunday ($15 adults, $10 children); a Perseids Meteor Safari on the golf course from 8:45 p.m.-9:45 p.m. Saturday and Sunday ($10 adults, $5 children); and the Night Owl Perseids Prowl Cruise from 10:30 p.m.-11:45 p.m. Saturday ($12 adults, $6 children). Check the State Parks calendar for other nighttime hikes this weekend, too. So what’s a meteor? We’re glad you asked. They’re icy space rocks from the Comet Swift-Tuttle that burn up when they hit our atmosphere, making for lovely streaks of light across the heavens. Reserve for Maumelle at 868-5806 and DeGray Lake at 865-5850. LNP

THURSDAY 8/9

TELEKINETIC YETI

9 p.m. White Water Tavern. $8.

The duo Telekinetic Yeti is a medley of unlikely juxtapositions: It's just not that often that the word "duo" accompanies anything described as "stoner doom metal," let alone with the geographical qualifier "from Dubuque, Iowa." Check out album closer "Himalayan Hymn" from 2017's "Abominable" for a good example of how much sonic territory two dudes from The Hawkeye State can cover in 5 1/2 minutes. They're on tour with Kansas City heavy-rock barn-burners Hyborian, and joined on the bill by locals Fred and Shoe. SS

FRIDAY 8/10

STEPHEN CHOPEK

8 p.m. The Undercroft.

The first thing that caught my ear about Stephen Chopek wasn't so much what he'd done as who he'd done it with — as drummer for a few faves: Pimps of Joytime, Shannon McNally, Amy LaVere. In "Radio Caroline," those percussion propers reveal themselves in the perfect chug of his strumming, but the text — a true tale of an off-shore pirate radio station that broadcast from the open seas in the early 1960s to thwart BBC's regulations and broadcast monopoly — sounds more like a Pete Seeger tune than a Pimps jam, and it's well tailored for a tiny, underground listening room like The Undercroft. Bring along some cash to throw in for the Undercroft-brewed beer on hand, or for the 45 RPM vinyl with Chopek's "Radio Caroline" opposite "The Ballad of Cash & Dean." SS


FRIDAY 8/10

2ND FRIDAY ART NIGHT

5-8 p.m., downtown galleries.

The Butler Center galleries have adopted a new name: They'll now be called the Galleries at Library Square, so you'll know they're part of the Central Arkansas Library System. Now we've got that squared away, let's move on to the art: The new show there is from the Butler Center's collection of artworks and artifacts from the WWII Japanese-American internment camps at Rohwer and Jerome. "A Matter of Mind and Heart: Portraits of Japanese American Identity" will feature Henry Sugimoto's "Arrival at Jerome," on loan from Hendrix College in Conway. (Sugimoto was still interned when, with the help of Hendrix art professor Louis Freund, he first exhibited his work at Hendrix.) Also at the Galleries at Library Square is an exhibition of work by the Brewer art dynasty: Nicholas, Adrian and Edward. River Market Books and Gifts (nee the Cox Creative Center), has also gotten a new name: It's now The Bookstore at Library Square. There, David Carpenter will perform live his gravity-defying video piece in the "Delta des Refuses" show. Over at the Historic Arkansas Museum, which is still the Historic Arkansas Museum, 2nd Friday will open "Space Between Teeth: Linda Lopez + Marc Mitchell" and MarQuis & Mood will provide the music. By making a donation to The Van, the nonprofit group that helps the unsheltered, Bella Vita will knock 20 percent off anything purchased at the artisan jewelry shop at 523 S. Louisiana St., and there will be beer from Lost Forty as encouragement. See art made live at Gallery 221, where artists and patrons will create a 60-by-60-inch triptych, "Healing Hands," and hold an auction to benefit the Children's Advocacy Centers of Arkansas. The Courtyard by Marriott will feature works by the members of the Art Group, Matt McLeod Fine Art is showing the Arkansas League of Artists "Members Show," and it's Movie Night at the Old State House Museum, with free popcorn, candy, soft drinks, beer and wine.

FRIDAY 8/10

TIFFANY

7 p.m. Park Plaza Mall. Donations of two canned goods.

In July 1988, pop singer Tiffany Darwish had a piano power ballad, "Could've Been," in heavy rotation on the radio. What it could've been, at least chronologically speaking, was the denouement of the star-crossed love story that she sang about the year before, with a drum machine-heavy remake of Tommy James and the Shondells' 1967 chart-topper "I Think We're Alone Now." Also in July 1988: What was once an open-air shopping center reopened as Park Plaza Mall in midtown Little Rock, bolstered and bookended by a double dose of Dillard's, the department store headquartered here in Little Rock. To celebrate the anniversary, Darwish — better known by her first-name mononym Tiffany — will put on a free concert in the mall parking lot near the corner of Markham Street and University Avenue. Organizers are steadfastly committed to the theme; a Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle (Michelangelo, specifically — the Miss Congeniality and self-identifying "party dude" of the TMNT personality quadrant) and a Hello Kitty character will be in attendance, and the mall's Sephora is booking appointments for full-face '80s makeovers. See Park Plaza Mall's Facebook page for the details, and bring along two canned goods for a drive called CANstruction, benefiting the Arkansas Foodbank. SS

AMASA HINES, DOT, OR: BENEFIT FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION

9:30 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

What connects the three bands on this fundraising bill isn't essentially musical — they're as sonically disparate as the summer days are long — but kinetic. Amasa Hines' slow builds, alternately sparse and urgent; Or's mechanized, trance-like foreboding; and DOT's driving, beachy punk rock are all energies used for good here, benefiting the Arkansas chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This one will sell out. Get tickets at lastchancerecords.us. SS

RICKY SKAGGS

7 p.m. Pulaski Technical College, Center for Humanities and Arts. $35-$120.

They played it like a gag in 1961, scripting a 7-year-old kid to come up and tug on the hem of Lester Flatt's suit jacket in the middle of the Martha White-sponsored Flatt & Scruggs variety show. Instead of a punchline, though, a dapper Ricky Skaggs approached the microphone and peeled out "Foggy Mountain Special" on the mandolin, following it up with "Ruby" in his west Kentucky drawl, singing lyrics he was too young to embody: "I was sittin' in the shade/with a shovel and my spade/diggin' in the ground gold mine/Ruby, Ruby/Honey, are you mad at your man?" His stagecraft has assuredly caught up to his virtuosity; back then, he ran out of camera frame before the audience had a chance to applaud him. Now, he's accustomed to multiple standing ovations like the ones he and his band Kentucky Thunder got at the Ryman Auditorium last week. He's been a bluegrass traditionalist when it was cool, he's been a bluegrass traditionalist when it wasn't, and he's been a bluegrass traditionalist in some unlikely collaborations, throwing his mandolin into the mix with Phish, Ry Cooder, on Arkansas native Erin Enderlin's 2017 record "Whiskeytown Crier." He also lent his talents to a campaign event for Jason Rapert in 2014 — why, Ricky, why? Earlier this year, Skaggs was honored with an induction to the Country Music Hall of Fame — years too late, Garth Brooks and others would claim. He'll play at UAPTC just a few weeks before accepting yet another title as an inductee to the 2018 International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame. Get tickets at uaptc.edu/charts. SS

SATURDAY 8/11

'MADE' reception

6-9 p.m. Boswell Mourot Fine Art.

Four great Arkansas artists in one place: That's what Boswell Mourot has going through Sept. 1. Matthew Lopas, associate professor of art at Hendrix College, sees the world through a fish-eye lens, his interiors and landscapes distorted into swirling panoramas. Alice Andrews paints the waterfalls and rocky outcrops of her Ozarks home with soft shapes of blue-greens and warm browns. In this show, Dennis McCann, a retired firefighter and winner of multiple awards for his pastels, uses complementary shades of orange and aquamarine to capture abstract underpinnings in representation. Eleanor Dickinson is an artist whose work we just don't see enough of: Gorgeous washes combined with drawing and abstracted architectural features, her take, perhaps Paul Klee-inspired, on places she's been. Matthew, Alice, Dennis and Eleanor — MADE of special stuff. LNP

SATURDAY 8/11

FOUL PLAY CABARET

10 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

Two weeks ago, when Foul Play Cabaret brought "The Modern Show" to a one-time brothel on Bathhouse Row in downtown Hot Springs called Maxine's, a young man apologized to me for having stopped so suddenly in my direct sight lines, frozen and presumably stultified by the magnetism between Violet D'Vine and Rosa Lee Bloom during a particularly intense duet. He'd come to hang out and maybe throw some darts and, I think, was surprised to find a burlesque show going on — and surprised at its thrust. "I thought cabaret was, like, the girls in the line kicking their legs up," he explained later on, mimicking a Rockettes routine with his fingers. That night, eschewing the tried-and-true Alberto Vargas pin-up incarnate aesthetic the burlesque troupe channels beautifully and often, Foul Play's dancers twirled and somersaulted instead to FKA Twigs and Katy Perry. Ruby Lead did an entire act using only a crimson swath of fabric and her jet black locks to create mesmerizing geometry, Jezebelle Jaxx revived an entire audience's commitment to yoga class and Doris Night opened the evening with a magnificently technicolor Sally Rand, her wrists twirling two enormous feather fans in time with the throbbing bass beats. It's artful and sex-positive and immaculately prepared and rehearsed, and the cost of admission is a fraction of what lounges in metropoli like Vegas and Paris are charging for shows of the same rank. If you can't catch them in this Capitol View/Stifft Station legend of a bar, consider attending the ensemble's return to Maxine's in Hot Springs on Saturday, Aug. 18, when they'll put up "Foul Play Loves the '80s," complete with hair scrunchies, leg warmers, a spandex routine called "Aerobics with Violet" and a guest appearance from Dallas dancer Vivienne Vermuth. SS

TUESDAY 8/14

GODSMACK, SHINEDOWN

7 p.m. Verizon Arena. $40-$100.

If you hated Godsmack for sounding too much like Metallica or Alice in Chains: Good news! They sound different now. That is to say, new tunes like "Bulletproof" have more of a "commercial aspect," lead singer Sully Erna told the video series FaceCulture last year. He's right, in a way; there's more melody and less of the tortured guitar crunch that became synonymous with the words "nu metal" during the band's mid-'90s rise. Then again, can anybody who penned a soundtrack for a slice of "The Mummy" franchise claim he didn't have a commercial aspect to begin with? Erna and his crew mix that new sound with the stuff that's been the bread and butter of KDJE-FM, 100.3 ("The Edge"), for at least a decade, and they're here with fellow hard rock radio staples Shinedown who, despite anthems like "45," never took to the "nu metal" vibe wholeheartedly enough to have trouble shaking it off.

          A water main burst has caused a 20 ft high fountain of water.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A plume of water could be seen by people in Dartford after a water main burst.

The pipe busted on Bob Dunn Way near a Nissan car garage this afternoon.

Sales executive at the garage Edward Alexander-Webber, 28, said that pipe exploded three hours ago and has been gushing out water since.

He added: " It is going off big time, it is very wet and it is leaking around the outside of our showroom.

"It has been going off for ages now and the water is easily reaching 20 feet high.

"I've heard that a JCB that was doing some work on the site ran over something and that is what caused it."

Abby Turner, spokesman for Thames Water said: “We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused by a burst water main in Bob Dunn Way.

“Our engineers are currently working hard to repair the pipe which was damaged by a third party digging nearby, and have now stopped the water flowing from it.

"Some customers may notice they have no water or lower pressure than normal while we get the pipe fixed. We’ll aim to get things back to normal as soon as possible.”

          Vintage Recipes: High Altitude Baking Adjustments      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 


Of course, when you dig through a box of recipes that came from the Rocky Mountain region, it makes perfect sense that you would run into a recipe card with “High Altitude Baking Adjustments” on it.



High Altitude Baking can be a frustrating experience, especially for those new to the challenge. The tips found on this recipe card will give you a place to start when trying to adjust your recipes for a higher altitude.

Please note the adjustments start at 5000 ft which may be higher than your altitude. I presume the information was published in the Denver area which sits at 5280 feet above sea level so their readers would probably not have a need for instructions for a lower altitude.

I don’t suggest trying to convert ALL your recipes to high altitude unless you have a lot of patience and time on your hands…or unless you just plain ‘ol WANT to. It took me several weeks to get my bread machine recipe right so I’ve only fussed with a handful of recipes.

Sometimes it makes sense to find some new family favorites. I recommend taking a look at a couple of my favorite high altitude baking books, Pie in the Sky by Susan G. Purdy and Sharing Mountain Recipes: The Muffin Lady’s Everyday Favorites by Randi Lee Levin.


Also, check out second hand bookstores for local cookbooks (like those usually used by schools or churches as fundraisers). You can find a lot of high altitude family favorites in those cookbooks.

Please Note: 
We do not test or verify all the information found on these old cards. If you choose use the information found here, please know that you do so at your own risk.

(Times of Israel) Michael Bachner - Three Palestinians were sent to 36 days in prison on Tuesday for damaging and attempting to rob the ancient town of Sebastia, a major archaeological site in the West Bank. They were caught at 1:00 a.m. on July 18 by an inspector for the archaeology division of the Civil Administration while carrying digging equipment and a metal detector. Sebastia served as the capital of the biblical Kingdom of Israel in Samaria in the 8th and 9th centuries BCE. The site includes a Crusader cathedral, an ancient Roman city boasting a forum, a colonnaded street and a temple to Emperor Augustus, and the remains of the palace of Omri, ruler of the Kingdom of Israel.

          THE CRIMES AGAINST MANKIND AND NICOLA TESLA’ GENIUS CONTINUE      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I have been a huge fan of the super genius Nicola Tesla for many years. He was a man far beyond his time who could have advanced society far beyond where we are today.

If he had been backed by our government as well as private investors  and allowed to develop the huge amount of incredible inventions he designed the world would be far more advanced as well as a better place to live.

One of the  most important inventions that Tesla developed  for mankind was his free energy system which he not only invented but had nearly finished building on Long Island New York when the greedy and power criminals Thomas Edison and the banker J P Morgan not only stopped him but dismantled and destroyed the tower and machine which would have been the start of free energy for the entire world

If Nicola Tesla had been allowed, funded and aided in his pursuit of creating a free energy power system this world would now be a far more advanced better planet. Instead for personal reasons of wanting wealth and power Thomas Edison and JP Morgan not only stopped this from happening they drove this incredible genius in to poverty and black balled him by being bullies keeping the world dark and set back hundreds of years.

People laugh when I say this yet I remain faithful to the statement if there were ever two men who I would have punched over and over in the face it would be Edison and Morgan. They should have been thrown in jail to rot for life for crimes against humanity -  for what they did to this world for private wealth and power.

I cannot give an exact number to the death toll of those who have died over the last one hundred years or so due to the search for energy to keep the world moving, lights glowing and winters where homes are warm and dinners cooking on stoves all over the world.  I do know  most of those deaths  can be directed  towards those who stopped the genius Nicola Tesla from finishing his work. Our government of course is also directly responsible for this crime against mankind and still continue to this day in continuing to keep Tesla’s free energy knowledge hidden and this world in terrible turmoil.

The number of people who have died in mining for coal, digging for oil, or simply dying from extreme cold without the ability to heat their homes over the last century is enormous.

Let us not forget all the wars fought over the need for oil. Add the fact terrorism is at least partly if not completely funded by way of the profits from the worlds urgent needs for energy and we have lists of millions of dead bodies covering this world all due to need for energy . Now would anyone like to join me while I punch Edison and Morgan’s nasty noses across their selfish greedy faces?

That is only part of my anger which brings me to the main question that I just do not understand. That question is why  are we still fighting for oil and where is Tesla's free energy system and why are we not building and using it ? How can that question contine to  remains without answer to this very day.?Wars continue people die however we still remain without Nicola Tessa’s free energy system. I do not believe for a moment it is still hidden or lost. I do not believe for a second that with the knowledge known about this system that our scientists today could not finish Tesla’s free energy system which would free the world.

Yes I know the story that it is a big mystery to who it was that entered Nicola Tesla's small dwelling in New York City on the day he died ,alone and penniless,  and supposedly removed all his papers and invention details to never be seen again. Of course I do not buy this at all and feel if we are able to explore space we should be able to find the plans for the free energy system  he built on Long Island and try to continue along with Tessa’s pursuits of free energy.

If we can give a private company millions if not billions of dollars to poke around in space why not do the same and give a chunk of that money to those who could continue with Tessa’s free energy system.  I truly feel our needs during these trying times here on earth now out way our need to explore space. The amount of life saved as well as a knife in the heart of the flow of money that funds terrorism would be huge with Tesla’s free energy system in place.

          Over under NFL wins Cardinals Vikings Giants advice       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Here are three predictions on the season win totals offered by oddsmakers on every NFL team. Keep in mind that these lines for Over under NFL wins Cardinals Vikings Giants are usually set optimistically, resulting in good opportunities on under wagers, especially if you can get better than even-money odds.  
 

Over under NFL wins Cardinals Vikings Giants advice

Arizona Cardinals under 5.5 wins (+145) - Over under NFL wins Cardinals Vikings Giants advice
 
Someone has to be last in the NFC West, and it looks like Arizona will fill that role in 2018. Bruce Arians was the glue holding the Cardinals together; now rookie head coach Steve Wilks (hired off just one year as a defensive coordinator in Carolina) will have to work with a depleted defense that saw Karlos Dansby, Justin Bethel, and Tyrann Mathieu jump ship in the offseason. 
 
Josh Rosen could be an offensive centerpiece for years to come, but he’s not surrounded by many weapons outside of David Johnson, fresh off a season-killing wrist injury, and the aged Larry Fitzgerald. The Rams and 49ers will be tough divisional matchups for Arizona, who also have a brutal road schedule with dates against the Vikings, Chiefs, Chargers, Packers and Falcons. Place this bet now while the odds are still generous. 
 
 
Minnesota Vikings over 10 wins (-125) - Over under NFL wins Cardinals Vikings Giants advice
 
The Vikings addressed their most glaring need in a huge way when they inked Kirk Cousins to a three-year, $84 million contract this offseason. He’ll be throwing to the recently-extended Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, and he’ll have a full season (hopefully) from promising halfback Dalvin Cook. 
 
The league’s number-one defense from a year ago got stronger as they acquired in-the-trenches stalwart Sheldon Richardson in the offseason. 
 
Ten wins seems like a pessimistic projection despite the degree of difficulty the NFC presents; the Vikings won 13 last year and got better in the offseason. As long as they can manage the land mines in the NFC North they should be a 11-win team or better. 
 
Over under NFL wins Cardinals Vikings Giants
 
 
New York Giants under 7 wins (+120) - Over under NFL wins Cardinals Vikings Giants advice
 
The Giants had a chance to draft a successor to Eli Manning, and a good one at that, but they let Sam Darnold go to the hometown rival Jets. Instead, they re-committed to the 37-year-old Manning and drafted Saquon Barkley to carry the ball out of the backfield. Even if Barkley is a generational talent, he can only do so much behind an offensive line that saw Justin Pugh and Weston Richburg leave town. Nate Solder was brought in to fill the void, but he’s just one player in lieu of two. 
 
The Giants defense continues to be a liability as well, and their division is a tough one with the Eagles, last year’s Super Bowl champs, and the Cowboys as potential double-digit game winners. Don’t expect New York to sniff seven wins this season as they face the eighth-toughest schedule by win percentage (.520) in the entire league.

Ieri, in data 31 luglio, è stata revocata dal sindaco Palomba l'ordinanza di divieto di balneazione nei punti Mortelle ed Incantesimo sul litorale di Torre Del Greco. Il ritiro dell'ordinanza sindacale n. 635 del 27/07/2018 è stato disposto a seguito di ulteriori prelievi ed analisi effettuate in loco dall'ARPAC: il decreto di revoca è pubblicato il 31/07/2018 sul sito del Comune, completo della relazione tecnica inviata dall'Ente Regionale. In realtà non è che l'allarme per la presenza dell'alga tossica Ostreopsis ovata sia completamente rientrato, in quanto il divieto di balneazione persiste in alcune zone molto limitate di spiaggia libera, individuate con i parametri di latitudine e longitudine indicati nell'immagine sottostante.

Da giorni girano sui social immagini, a dir poco raccapriccianti, della mole di rifiuti sparsi per ogni dove nelle strade cittadine. Particolarmente drammatica risulta la situazione delle cosiddette isole ecologiche, che di ecologico, in verità, hanno ben poco. A cosa si deve dunque questo ennesimo rigurgito di immondizia? La tendenza dei cittadini è quella di soggiacere alla abituale strumentalizzazione politica del problema rifiuti, ma al riguardo credo bastino solo poche parole: nessuna, dico nessuna, delle amministrazioni che si sono succedute nel corso degli anni ha mai risolto l'annoso problema dei rifiuti urbani e della loro raccolta in questa città. Da alcune settimane tuttavia la cosa ha assunto dimensioni di tipo emergenziale e la cittadinanza tende ad accusarne la nuova amministrazione appena insediata.

          Flipgrid's Mobile App Now Has Basic Editing Options      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Buried in amongst the other Microsoft EDU announcements that were made this week was the news that Flipgrid's mobile app was updated.

The latest version of the Flipgrid mobile app has a basic editing function that will let students trim the beginning and or end of a video before submitting it to a grid. Additionally, the latest update to the Flipgrid added the option to use both front and rear facing cameras in a video. Students can tap the flip icon in the recorder to switch from the front to rear camera and back within the same recording. The third new feature in the app is the option for kids to switch from landscape to portrait view while recording.

Here are the links to the updated mobile apps:
Flipgrid for Android
Flipgrid for iOS
Flipgrid for Windows 10

Applications for Education
Of the new features in the Flipgrid mobile app, the option to flip between the front and rear cameras in the same video is the one that I think will be the most useful for students and teachers. Switching between those two cameras could be great for making short instructional videos in which you start by talking into the camera and then switch to showing something like a chemistry demonstration.

          Re: Investing in France      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hi there,



US/France bi-national here with some experience in similar situations.



Based on the information you've provided, the impression I'm getting is that your current approach plays very fast and loose with both the IRS and the Fisc (French tax authority). This approach probably worked for several years, and may yet work for many years to come. However, if one of these entities does start digging into your situation, the consequences would be severe.



Before looking at what supports to invest in and how to mitigate currency risk, it'd be worthwhile to talk about your situation with a US/France tax professional. Do not bother with your French banker or even a branch manager; these types of issues fall far outside their competency. When you do find a professional you trust, here are some conversation starters:


  • Does the bank where I currently hold my "assurance vie" comply with FATCA reporting?

    Tip: 90%+ of French assurance vie providers intentionally do not put up with FATCA due to cost of compliance, categorically refuse US-person clients, and the fine print you agreed to in your contract requires them to immediately close the contract when you become a US person (citizen or LPR/green-card holder) regardless of the individual tax implications associated with that sale and closure (i.e. Prélèvement libératoire à 35%, 15% ou 7,5% selon la durée du contrat + prélèvements sociaux à 15,5%).

  • What funds are held in my assurance vie? How do I comply with PFIC, and what will that cost me?

  • What holdings do I have to report on my 2042NR + 3916 (annual French tax return)?

  • How will the gains on my home sale in France be taxed? Given my non-resident status, will it be taxed at the unfavorable rates of a secondary residence/investment property on my 2042NR?

  • What are the implications of the recent US tax reform standard deductions on foreign tax credits?

  • How will France treat my US IRA/401(k) gains at retirement?

  • etc.


The good people at the SIPNR (Service des impôts des particuliers non-résidents—France's Non-resident individual tax service centre) can be an immensely helpful resource as well. Just pick up the phone; they appreciate working with individuals who try to do the best they can to navigate the labyrinth of international tax law. I have yet to find a similar resource with the IRS…



Bon courage !

How to rev up your page speed for better website performance
Page speedis now aranking factor on mobile search. That means it’s a critically important component in all of your search engine optimization (SEO) efforts because of its impact on user experience.

According toresearch conducted by Financial Times, a 1-second slower page results in a 5 percent reduction in reader engagement .


How to rev up your page speed for better website performance

Google states over half of the visits made to mobile sites are abandoned if it takes more than 3 seconds for the screen to load.


How to rev up your page speed for better website performance

The bottom line is simple: Page speed plays a significant role in performance, whether we’re talking about paid or organic search, reader engagement, sales or lead generation.

Fortunately, improving page speed isn’t some arcane and mysterious dark art. You won’t need to brew a special potion, summon demons, or sell your soul. You’ll just need to have a decent understanding of certain technologies and invest some good old-fashioned hard work to bring it all together.

Establish a baseline

The first step is to establish a baseline. By doing that, we can obtain a quantifiable measurement of speed and identify the work we’ll need to do to improve it. Some of the tools I use for this are:

WebPageTest.org. GTmetrix.com. Google PageSpeed Insights.
How to rev up your page speed for better website performance

Google PageSpeed Insights

Once you haveyour tools lined up and a baseline, it’s time to get to work.

Understand how websites work

Most people ― including many of those who claim to be developers ― lack a proper understanding of how websites really work. That’s why we see so many bloated and inefficient websites today.

We’re at an interesting point in internet history where literally anyone can create a website with just a few clicks. While that comes with certain advantages, it also creates a whole world of new problems.

Think about it like this: If someone knew nothing about architecture, but used software that enabled them to create blueprints for a bridge with just a few clicks, would you feel comfortable driving across that bridge once it was built? I certainly wouldn’t.

That’s because there is a lot more to architecture than our own personal preferences. There are specific structures required to serve specific purposes. There are precise calculations to determine the load-bearing capacity of various components. And there are code and zoning laws to help ensure a building is safe and fits into the local community.

It’s the same thing with websites.

In order to ensure your website loads quickly, you need to understand hypertext markup language (HTML), cascading style sheets (CSS) and javascript at a bare minimum. Ideally, you should also have at least a working knowledge of hypertext preprocessor (php) and the inner workings of WordPress. Having a good handle on these elements will allow you to dig into the nuts and bolts of a website and fix the things that are slowing it down.

Minimize HTTP requests

Once upon a time, bandwidth was a minuscule fraction of what we enjoy today, so back then, we would compensate by slicing large images into a series of smaller images. Rather than waiting for a single large image to load, visitors would see the image load in chunks.

Today, the bandwidth available through even a basic internet connection is much better. This has led to lazy developers and impatient visitors.

Each hypertext transfer protocol (HTTP) request increases the time it takes for a page to load . Often significantly. In fact, the impact can be so dramatic that a smaller web page with more HTTP requests may actually take longer to fully load than a larger web page with fewer HTTP requests.

How dowe reduce the number of HTTP requests our pages make? This is where we roll up our sleeves and start digging into the source code of our website. What we’re looking for here are opportunities to merge or eliminate certain HTTP requests.

CSS and JavaScript files are often the low-hanging fruit here because so many websites have a ton of both. There are three options to handle this:

Consolidate all CSS and JavaScript files into one single CSS file and JavaScript file. Install a plug-in that mimics this functionality on the front end, while leaving the actual CSS and JavaScript files untouched on the back end. When possible, delete calls to CSS and JavaScript files completely.

In most cases, you’ll need to use a combination of these options. That’s because if your website is built on WordPress, merging CSS and JavaScript files from plug-ins into a single file could cause problems when one or more of those plug-ins are updated.

Generally, I’ll first identify any CSS and JavaScript files that aren’t needed and remove them. The speed improvement you can make at this stage can be significant because many themes load a lot of unnecessary files. This might include fonts you aren’t using, separate CSS files for color variations and individual JavaScript files for functionality that you aren’t using, to name just a few.

Next, I ensure that all CSS and JavaScript files for that website are merged into a single CSS file and JavaScript file.

Finally, I’ll utilize a plug-in that merges all CSS and JavaScript files ― for the theme as well the plug-ins ― into a single file when the page is loaded, leaving the actual files untouched in the background.

I recommend using sprites to trim back HTTP requests generated by image files. This won’t work for every image, but it efficiently uses images that are used repeatedly throughout a website. This might include your logo, social media icons and navigational elements.

The idea here is that you put all of these images into a single file, and then use CSS to define the container for that element and appropriately position the image within that container. Now, instead of a dozen or more individual HTTP requests, you can simply make one. How’s that for efficient?

You may also want to consider replacing at least some of those images with a web font like FontAwesome.com, which gives you a lot more flexibility with the same or smaller file size.

If you go that route, you should download the necessary files and host them locally rather than remotely. Calls to external files can have a dramatic and detrimental effect on page speed. I’ve seen differences as large as one second or more when a website loads a file from an external source.

Go easy on the plug-ins

Plug-ins are some of the things that make WordPress awesome. They’re also some of the things that can make it terrible because they could be poorly programmed, resulting in poor performance. They also often load several CSS, JavaScript and image files, even those already loaded, such as JQuery.

This can get real messy real quick.

Each plug-in, no matter how lightweight, will place a load on your server when it serves a web page. Add up a few and the differe

A fragile truce set in between us. Then, a mutual crush.I had an obsessive nature, but my fixation on him was downright wholesome compared to their new merch girl’s.

EXCERPT

The music video is loading, and a still picture with the headline, “Deep in You,” is sprawled over Troy’s laptop. It’s wild, gorgeous, a closeup of Troy’s face thrown backward, eyes half-closed. Through the slits, he looks up at me with reverence, dreadlocks pulling him downward. My hair mixes with his, diagonal stripes of black and red against his mahogany and blond. Color. Movement. The slow start to a song that will soon become danceable. Biceps explosive with strength, Troy makes his drums snarl, rock-hard torso melting with heat. Next, he’s lying on a bed. When he sits up on his elbows and sees me, his surprise isn’t an act. It’s real and big as the camera zooms in on his face and Emil, the singer, cries out, “I need to be deep. In. You.” I ooze revenge and seduction and hate from the doorway. Dressed like my ancestors, I’m every Gypsy woman as I stride to him, toss my hair out of the way, feathers and bangles rocking. I straddle him, skirt like an oversized, messy flower around me. I push him against the bed, and he lets me. I thought it was perfect, the way I was taking from him, knowing how he felt about me, knowing how he wanted absolution for what he once did. I’m moving over him. The way he shuts his eyes, lids trembling with barely retained ecstasy. How his Adam’s apple bobs while I ride him. Our bodies aren’t in focus—just the hint of my shoulder with the neckline sunken too low. Troy’s hand cupping it, thumb stroking, then digging into my flesh with passion. “Oh,” I say to him, now. “That’s… a lot, isn’t it?” “Remember this?” Troy stops the video and sends me a playful side-glance. I flush scarlet, although the one who should be embarrassed is him. “Stop it.” I pull out an earbud and bring my glass to my cheek. Unfortunately, it’s empty and doesn’t offer the cool relief I was hoping for. “Crazy to see yourself like this, in the exact moment you climax. I’ve never seen that before. Doesn’t look that bad,” he adds, thoughtful. “Bad” isn’t even close. His expression is beatific. Troy radiates beauty, love, and a pleasure so strong he can’t even keep his eyes open. “You know what I wish?” “Do I want to know?” I toss back. “I wish they’d have shown your face. There’s nothing more stunning in this world than you coming.”

About Sunniva Dee

 
 So you know I’m a writer. I write literary romances that are full of substance and romance. I tend to write in my head all the time, like when I sleep, breath, pet cats, am forced to make dinner, and even while doing my job as an adviser for students at an art college in the South— I mean…I—I—I write at other times too. I love international flights when they’re delayed and my Mac and I can dive into a bar. There’s nothing better than an hour or two lost (too quickly) in pages I didn’t know were waiting for me. I hate schedules, real life, cross-country skiing, and moodiness not inside of me. Not that I enjoy it in me. I’m just used to it, and it feeds scenes in my books, see? I giggle at everything. I don’t judge easily. People say I’m kind/genuine/shy/stubborn/annoying/aloof/boring, but above it all, I am passionate. A Dragon of the Chinese zodiac and an Aquarius with all-the-air and the brightest color palette. Incidentally, that last fact could be why no one wants to buy the house I’ve got for sale. But mostly, I love to write.

不会给予目标的默认奖励,也就是说附近的英雄不会因为其死亡而获得默认的金钱和经验

金钱和经验都会立即获得,与视觉效果无关

造成与目标当前生命值相同的伤害,这个伤害完全无视任何形式的减免或加成

也就是说他会触发大部分受到伤害的事件,比如小兵(和中立生物)的仇恨

不能对守卫,建筑,远古生物,英雄级单位,或死灵书的召唤单位使用

为最大化地利用1.85倍经验奖励,对以下生物使用炼金:

半人马征服者, 萨特苦难使者, 地狱熊怪粉碎者, 枭兽撕裂者, 黑暗巨魔召唤法师,获得(175.75 + 3.515 * 游戏时间 / 7.5) 的经验值,远程兵 (166.5经验值),攻城兵 (162.8经验值)

迈达斯是一个在希腊神话中能将他碰到的所有东西都变成黄金的国王

银月之晶(Moon Shard):

描述:相传这是月之女神赛莉蒙妮流下的一滴眼泪。

双击对自己使用

一个英雄不能吞噬多于一个银月之晶

即使被吞噬,该物品的价格仍然会被计算在英雄的净收入和GPM中

也可以对熊灵使用,但其他英雄级单位不行

不能对幻象和复制体使用

主身拥有时,幻象和风暴双雄会复制银月之晶buff

但是,米波和猴子猴孙的复制体不会复制buff

视野加成遵循与月夜之视相同的规则

吞噬的视野加成也与月夜之视叠加

在其他所有视野修改效果之后施加

这意味着对黑暗时间,荒芜,噩梦,和烟幕有效

多个银月之晶的夜间视野加成不叠加

尽管银月之晶被吞噬时,这个技能就会消失,但吞噬的buff仍然会提供一半夜间视野加成

在2017年7月14日更新之前,银月之晶的主动技能,吞噬没有一个官方名称。该名称是从Dota 2 Wiki得到的并且官方在Dota 2中使用。

王者之戒(Ring of Basilius):

描述:这枚戒指是最伟大的法师才能获得的嘉奖。

Basilius是从希腊单词Basileus衍生出来的,表示"国王"或"帝王"

恢复头巾(Headdress):

描述:创造一个镇痛的光环在战斗中为友军恢复生命。

在DOTA中恢复头巾英文也叫作Headdress of Rejuvenation.


玄冥盾牌(Buckler):

描述:一面强大的盾牌赐予携带者过往英雄们的力量,它能在战斗中为整支军队提供保护。

在从DotA转变成Dota 2的过程中,这件物品的英文名从Nathrezim Buckler简化成Buckler。

这是因为Nathrezim是的一个恶魔种族(在Warcraft世界观中为恐惧魔王)。


天鹰之戒(Ring of Aquila):

描述:陨落督军阿奎拉的戒指依然在战场上支援着军队。

Aquila在拉丁语和罗马语中表示eagle.

奥术鞋(Arcane Boots):

描述:装备这种鞋子的法师在战斗中极具价值。

6.68之前,奥术鞋的名称是奥术指环,需要守护指环和一个图纸合成,而不是速度之靴,拥有同一个主动技能,但是被动是增加护甲,而不是移动速度

韧鼓(Drum of Endurance):

描述:在危难时刻能鼓舞周围人士气的遗物。

使用时打断使用者的持续施法技能

多次使用韧鼓效果不叠加,但会刷新持续时间

只影响玩家控制的单位,包括无敌单位,不包括守卫

这件物品不会在使用所有充能后消失,充能可以通过再次购买图纸补充

在原DotA中,这件物品为先祖韧鼓


弗拉迪米尔的祭品(Vladmir's Offering):

描述:被死去的吸血鬼怨念诅咒的面具

与其他吸血来源加法叠加

不能对守卫,建筑和友方单位吸血

攻击力加成只计算基础攻击力

不会进一步增加其他攻击力加成来源

生命值和魔法值增加的方式为生命恢复和魔法恢复,

光环有0.5秒延滞时间

影响无敌单位

物品的名字以及主人公是引用自弗拉德·III世和他的虚构角色,德古拉

洞察烟斗(Pipe of Insight):

描述:一件来源神秘的强大古物,能制造出抵挡法术攻击的护盾。

多个魔法抗性来源乘法叠加。

洞察烟斗不继承恢复头巾的属性加成

使用时打断使用者的持续施法技能

影响所有友方单位,包括建筑,但不包括守卫,影响无敌,但不影响隐藏友军

格挡任何减伤之前的伤害,而在技能免疫期间不会格挡任何魔法伤害

重新使用护盾会刷新buff并重置护盾的吸收上限

与其他魔法伤害护盾不叠加,如果同一个单位拥有多个护盾来源,那么他们都会因为同时吸收同一个伤害实例而消耗

只能格挡来自技能和攻击的魔法伤害。不能格挡任何物理或纯粹伤害

不与挑战头巾共享冷却

在从DotA转变成Dota 2的过程中,这件物品的名字从卡德加之洞察烟斗简化为洞察烟斗。


戴泽的饰品德尊烟斗是基于洞察烟斗的

原力法杖(Force Staff):

描述:让你可以操纵他人,不论出于善或恶。

双击对自身使用

以1200的速度推进目标

目标在推进过程中不会被控制,因此他仍然可以在推进过程中使用技能或物品,攻击和转身

也就是说不会打断目标的持续施法技能

但是,仍然会打断使用者的持续施法技能,因为这是一个单目标技能,并不是推进本身打断的

不能推进受黑洞,时间结界,决斗,燃烧枷锁,或动能力场影响的单位

不能打破突袭的拉扯,对一个被拉扯的英雄使用时,不会将其推出拉扯的最远距离

可以对任何单位使用,除了守卫和建筑,但可以对追踪导弹使用

可以推进目标越过不可通过的地形,被推的目标周围100范围内的树木会在推进过程中被摧毁

可以对Roshan使用,但是没有任何效果,因为Roshan对强制移动免疫

与飓风长戟共享冷却

死灵书(Necronomicon):

描述:借助亡灵术和恶魔学的终极奥义,强大的邪恶力量被封印在书页之内

打断使用者的持续施法技能

召唤单位总是在施法者面前召唤出来

全部3级死灵书之间共享冷却

再次使用同一个死灵书会覆盖前一次召唤的单位,无论是在谁控制下的

但是再次使用另一个死灵书(或者同一个但不同等级的)会产生1组新的召唤单位

召唤单位不能作为支配头盔和迈达斯之手的目标

但是,他们能够作为其他转化类技能或立即击杀技能的目标,如死亡契约,神圣劝化或吞噬

这件物品是基于《死灵书》的,《死灵书》是恐怖小说作家H.P.洛夫克拉夫特创作的虚构的魔法书,小说中的死者之书,但并不是历史上真正的书籍,只是存在于小说世界里的设定。历史上的亡灵书是一本关于古埃及以及地中海地区宗教哲学和神学的书籍,不过也很可能是欧洲中世纪术士所写的伪书。

召唤技能与洛夫克拉夫特的克苏鲁神话中能召唤古代宇宙支配者的原型书本相似

这两个单位的色调可能是引用自日本传统中赤鬼和青鬼,赤鬼更具侵略性,更加易怒,也更加外向,而青鬼则是更加安静,更加睿智,也更加内向。

炎阳纹章(Solar Crest):

描述:为了纪念炎日天空所打造的护符。

关于闪避之类的事情请参考在7.06版本,韩松大佬写的关于闪避的文章

韩松:浅谈dota2中的闪避、克敌机先、必中、致盲、miss


达贡之神力(Dagon):

描述:越用威力就越大的次级法杖,让持有者的魔法从指尖喷涌而出

大衮(天主教译为达贡)是闪米特人的一个主要的神,司农业,由早期阿摩利人所崇拜。他的形状是一个披着鱼皮的男性,是非利士民族的众神之首,被信奉犹太教的以色列人认为是魔鬼。

在H·P·洛夫克拉夫特(H·P·Lovecraft)创造的克苏鲁神话(Cthulhu Mythos)体系中,大衮(Dagon,又译达贡)与雌性的许德拉(Mother Hydra)作为旧日支配者克苏鲁(Cthulhu)的从者而存在,它们为深潜者(Deep Ones)的首领、父神以及母神。有说法指出大衮与许德拉为较小型的下级旧日支配者,也有人认为它们只是长生的大型深潜者而已。

达贡的主动技能,能量冲击,可能是引用自圣经的参孙,他曾向亚伯拉罕系的神祈祷赐予他力量摧毁在达贡神庙中的敌人

EUL的神圣法杖(Eul's Scepter of Divinity):

描述:一支从久远年代流传下来的神秘权杖,能招来破坏性的龙卷风行善或作恶。

其他单位可以在位于空中被龙卷风的单位下方穿过

伤害在持续时间后施加,如果龙卷风被驱散了,那么仍然会在落地时施加伤害

只对敌方目标施加伤害

可以对Roshan使用,但没有效果,因为Roshan对强制移动免疫,仍然会施加伤害

法杖的名字引用自Eul,他在2003年创建了第一张DotA地图RoC DotA,这个道具就是为了表达对Eul的敬意。

忽然想到知乎一个经典问题,风杖能不能吹队友

DOTA中的风杖(Eul 的神圣法杖)为什么不能吹队友?曾经能吹过吗?

阿哈利姆神杖(Aghanim's Scepter):

描述:这把权杖属于拥有半神之力的法师。

米波和噬魂鬼在购买阿哈利姆神杖之后就不能丢弃或出售

当一个英雄可以升级时,物品和已经升级的技能的描述上会变成已经升级的状态

当一个英雄不可以升级时,终极技能会有一个写着"本英雄没有升级效果。"的绿色提示

阿哈利姆神杖升级后的单目标技能会与清莲宝珠发生交互作用,取决于拥有回音护盾的英雄是否装备了阿哈利姆神杖,而不是施法者本身

阿哈利姆神杖是以阿哈利姆命名的,阿哈利姆是塞尔达传说: 时空隧道的其中一个邪恶巫师

除了邪影芳灵之外,英雄很少会在他们的语音回应中谈到阿哈利姆的名字,只会简单地称其为"神杖"。很有可能是为了避免版权侵权

力丸和莱恩是唯一没有神杖台词的英雄(艾欧和凤凰没有语音)

拉比克是阿哈利姆的儿子,他也有一个阿哈利姆神杖的一个仿制品,酒仙也有一个?

邪恶镰刀(Scythe of Vyse):

描述:Vyse教徒最为宝贵的圣物,法师们最为垂涎的武器。

对目标施加一个妖术效果,将其基础移动速度设定为140并且将其沉默,锁闭和缴械

但是目标的移动速度仍然受物品和技能的影响

因为妖术是改变基础移动速度,而不是施加一个减速效果,所有速度效果在计算时都会使用140点基础速度

妖术会立即摧毁幻象

邪恶镰刀的妖术会将目标变为一只小猪,斧王不再是斧王了(对,羊刀变猪,是不是没听说过,是不是足够邪恶,这就是神奇的DOTA世界,手动滑稽)

在原DotA中,这件物品为Guinsoo的邪恶镰刀,为了感谢DotA: Allstars的其中一个开发者,他现在已经去合作开发League of Legends了

旧版羊刀合成公式

很多玩家都称呼这件物品(包括几个游戏中的英雄)为"羊刀",因为在DotA中会将英雄变为一只小绵羊,但是在Dota 2中则是变为一只小猪

许多英雄购买邪恶镰刀时的台词也是称之为"羊刀"

这件物品的名字可能引用自世嘉的一款叫做天空之阿卡迪亚的RPG,里面的主角,Vyse,在早期概念图中是持有一把镰刀的

玲珑心(Octarine Core):

描述:位于法术技艺核心的,是只有身负异能之人才能感知的光带。

多个玲珑心的冷却减少不叠加。

降低主动,被动和物品技能的冷却与充能技能的补充时间

冷却减少不会动态更新。只有在拥有玲珑心时使用技能才会降低他们的冷却

看起来像是降低了静谧之鞋的冷却,但实际上没有效果

不影响刀光谍影和自然蔽护的渐隐延迟以及醉拳必定触发的致命一击/闪避计时器

在拥有玲珑心时使用卫士胫甲的修复时,治疗限制计时器也会降低10秒

与奥术神符和天赋的冷却减少乘法叠加

多个玲珑心的技能吸血不叠加。

拥有者对敌人或友方单位造成的所有技能伤害(有几个例外)都会获得治疗

对建筑,守卫或自身造成的伤害不会给予治疗

所有三种伤害类型和许多立即击杀效果都会给予治疗

治疗数值基于所有伤害减免之后造成的伤害

伤害来源必须为拥有者才能获得治疗,由召唤单位(包括守卫)造成的伤害不会给予治疗

Octarine是喜剧奇幻系列小说碟形世界中的一种虚构的颜色,出自特里·普拉切特笔下,在更新玲珑心之前他就去世了。这种颜色只有巫师和猫才能看到,是一种"类似荧光黄绿色的紫色"

玲珑心的合成配方与6.60之前的阿哈利姆神杖完全相同

Beta版图标
正式版图标


挑战头巾(Hood of Defiance):

挑战头巾(Hood of Defiance):

描述:一顶巫师们害怕的、具有魔法抵抗力的皮质头巾。

在2017年7月14日更新之前,挑战头巾的主动技能,绝缘,没有一个官方名称。该名称是从Dota 2 Wiki得到的并且官方在Dota 2中使用

赤红甲(Crimson Guard):

描述:原为抵御可怕的年兽所打造的铠甲。

该装备基于灰烬之灵一张早期概念图制作


黑皇杖(Black King Bar):

描述:渗透了巨人之力的强大法杖。

在梦幻之星online1里面当十星金箍棒(Monkey King Bar)和苍黑石(Black Blue Stone)进行合成的时候,就出现了“苍黑如意棒”,也就是黑皇杖(Black King Bar)

清莲宝珠(Lotus Orb):

描述:位居中央的宝石依然能反射出其制造者苍白的景象。

双击对自身使用,对同一个单位不叠加,但会刷新持续时间

可以对英雄级单位使用,但是不反弹任何技能

使用时向目标施加一个基础驱散

当技能被林肯法球格挡时,仍然会被反弹

不会反弹友军的技能

不反弹离子外壳,变形,技能窃取,幽鬼之刃,影之灵龛,魂之灵瓮,勇气勋章,和炎阳纹章

不反弹敌法师的升级后的 法术护盾或另一个回音护盾反弹的技能

反弹单体技能给他们的施法者实际上是Dota一个很老的技能概念。最先出现的版本是6.00,以林肯之镜的一个几率性的被动技能出现,也就是林肯法球重做之前的版本。这个技能在6.09被重做并替换成法术抵抗,也就是林肯法球被重做的时候

希瓦的守护(Shiva's Guard):

描述:据说曾经属于某位女神,至今仍保持大部分神力。

不会打断使用者的持续施法技能

冲击以350速度扩散,经过2.57秒到达最大范围然后消退

影响区域以拥有者为中心,因此当拥有者移动或闪烁时,范围也会随之变化

冲击并不是一个圆圈,它影响所有在冲击扩散区域内的每一个敌人

这意味着他与毁灭不一样,从边缘向施法者方向闪烁不能规避该技能效果


极寒冲击先造成伤害,再施加debuff

提供800范围的空中视野,视野跟随施法者移动,消退后会继续持续2秒

多个希瓦的守护的霜冷光环不叠加

光环有0.5秒延滞时间

只有在受影响的单位拥有来源视野时才会显示状态debuff图标

但是,界面上的攻击速度降低总是可见

物品名字中的"希瓦"是引用自最终幻想系列中的Shiva,一个冰召唤兽

Shiva也是指的湿婆,然后湿婆是男神

希瓦是为数不多用卷轴合成并且可以拆分的东西

除了圣剑,侦查·岗哨守卫,影之灵龛,魂之灵瓮其他的购买内10秒可以拆分

飓风长戟(Hurricane Pike):

描述:一柄传奇长戟,曾是远古飞龙骑士的皇家印记。

双击对自身使用

对自身或友军使用时,以1200的速度推进目标,对敌人使用时,以2250的速度推进目标

推进友军时取决于他们面向的方向,推进敌人时取决于施法者面向的方向

施法者会推向相反的方向,施法者和敌方目标之间会增加900距离

只有目标是敌人而不是友军时才会推进施法者

无限攻击距离只对敌方目标有效,攻击其他目标仍然会使用常规攻击距离

攻击速度也是一样,切换目标时使用常规的攻击速度,在到达攻击点时更新速度

目标为敌人时,施法者会发出一个对目标的攻击命令,这个效果只影响远程英雄

目标在推进过程中不会被控制,因此他仍然可以在推进过程中使用技能或物品,攻击和转身

也就是说不会打断目标的持续施法技能

不能推进受黑洞,时间结界,决斗,或动能力场影响的单位,如果目标是一个敌人,甚至不会推进施法者或者施加无限攻击距离

不能打破突袭的拉扯,对一个被拉扯的英雄使用时,不会将其推出拉扯的最远距离

可以对任何单位使用,除了守卫和建筑,也可以对追踪导弹使用

可以推进目标越过不可通过的地形,被推的目标周围100范围内的树木会在推进过程中被摧毁

可以对Roshan使用,但是没有任何效果,因为Roshan对强制移动免疫(仍然对施法者施加效果)

对自己或友军使用是使用默认的原力法杖音效

与原力法杖共享冷却

飓风长戟的图标显示它一半是原力法杖,一半是魔龙枪。

此名称可能是来自风之圣痕的最后一卷,里头的飓风长戟也被叫做虚空闪,是个能大大地提高风属性的法师的力量的神圣法器。

在2017年7月14日更新之前,飓风长戟的主动技能,飓风之力,没有一个官方名称。该名称是从Dota 2 Wiki得到的并且官方在Dota 2中使用

林肯法球(Linken's Sphere):

描述:这个有魔力的球体曾经保护了一位历史上最有名的英雄

林肯法球以林肯命名,Linken是魔兽世界中的一个角色,而这个角色又是以Link命名的,Link是塞尔达传说系列中的主角

林肯法球本来的名字是"林肯之镜"。他的技能是技能镜像,基本相当于一个几率性的清莲宝珠的回音护盾,这件物品在6.09中重做为当前的版本

关于法术抵抗的内容:

https://dota2-zh.gamepedia.com/%E6%B3%95%E6%9C%AF%E6%8A%B5%E6%8A%97

恐鳌之心(Heart of Tarrasque):

描述:保存完好的心脏,来自早已绝种的怪兽,能提升携带者的耐久力。

多个恐鳌之心的生命恢复不叠加

生命值增加的方式为生命恢复,因此每0.1秒恢复0.7%最大生命值

在14.29秒内完全治疗拥有者

受到大于0点的任意玩家(包括友方,但不包括自身)或Roshan的伤害时会使生命恢复进入5/7冷却

由于只是进入冷却而不是真正禁用,所以可以通过刷新球和再装填刷新冷却

同时受玲珑心和奥术神符的冷却降低影响

不会被被生命移除标记的伤害所禁用

恐鳌"是引用自泰拉斯奎,这是一种在龙与地下城中几乎不可能打败的怪物,而这又是引用自跟w:Tarasque很相似,这是一条传说中被圣马大驯服的龙

强袭胸甲(Assault Cuirass):

描述:在幽冥地带的深渊锻造,这件地狱盔甲提高整支军队的护甲和攻击速度。

不过在DOTA1里面描述是“Forged in the depths of the river Styx”


Styx是希腊神话中的冥河,传说浸泡过河水将会刀枪不入,被赐予永恒。在《荷马史诗》中的“特洛伊之战”里面的传奇英雄Achilles(阿基琉斯)就是在出生时被他母亲拎着脚踝浸泡过河水,因此他全身除了脚踝刀枪不入。

水晶剑(Crystalys):

描述:用稀有水晶锻造的剑刃,会寻找敌人护甲的脆弱处。

在5.40之前,水晶剑叫"水晶战衣",而在5.31之前,叫"水晶防御者"

水晶剑是法师之战中三把武器当中的一把,这个可以从DOTA1里物品介绍知道


莫尔迪基安的臂章(Armlet of Mordiggian):

描述:能让你成为野兽的武器,持有者牺牲自己的生命能量来获得巨大力量。

莫尔迪基安的臂章是以莫尔迪基安命名的,莫尔迪基安是一个在克苏鲁神话中由克拉克·艾什顿·史密斯的藏骸所之神 (1934)创作的一个神祇,他有吸取生命的力量,他的所有教徒都是食尸鬼

影刃(Shadow Blade):

描述:一位国王死后留下的宝剑,拿着它你可以隐身移动并从阴影中发动突袭。

在原DotA中,这件物品为洛萨之锋,引用自Warcraft世界中的安度因·洛萨。一些曾经玩过原DotA的人仍然会用"洛萨"来称呼他


昆卡的饰品,昆卡的影刃,是基于影刃的

碎颅锤(Skull Basher):

描述:用对了地方会让人闻风丧胆的武器,千万不要低估这把大槌粉碎对手防御的能力。

在原DotA中,这件物品叫"碎骨锤",引用自暗黑破坏神2的一件唯一物品

金箍棒(Monkey King Bar):

描述:一位大师级战士使用的强力棍棒。

美猴王,孙悟空,是中国民间小说西游记中的主角。他的武器,如意金箍棒,是一个两头由金箍紧的神奇铁棒。虽然他的重量有几吨重,但是美猴王可以随心所欲地将其伸缩变形,可以将它变小放在他的耳朵后面,也可以将其成倍放大,复制出无数根棒子

齐天大圣的默认武器模型是金箍棒

代达罗斯之殇(Daedalus):

描述:这件武器有着惊人的力量,即使是最强的战士也难以掌控它。

在原DotA中,这件物品为"暴雪弩炮"/大炮,引用自一件在暗黑破坏神2的一个武器(唯一弩弓),"Buriza-do Kyanon"在日文中表示"Blizzard Cannon"


Daedalus是由希腊文的"Daidalos"转变成拉丁文的,在古代希腊中意思是"聪明的工匠",代达罗斯同时也是其中一个在奥维德的"变形记"中的人物,是一个出色的工匠和手工艺人,嫉妒自己的外甥推下城墙,儿子伊卡洛斯飞的离太阳过近翅膀没了也死了,杀徒丧子令人唏嘘。

由于水晶剑能增加34.5 + 15%有效攻击力,因此如果你拥有42点或更多攻击力时,购买水晶剑会比恶魔刀锋更值

蝴蝶(Butterfly):

描述:只有最强大最老练的战士才能携带蝴蝶,但它也提供无可比拟的战斗灵活力作为回报。

蝴蝶也是法师之战三把武器的其中一把

圣剑(Divine Rapier):

描述:它强横无匹,并不满足于侍奉唯一的主人。

这件物品在持有者死亡时掉落,除非他拥有重生

圣剑不能被摧毁或出售

圣剑不能被放在背包中

与其他合成物品不同,圣剑在合成后的10秒内无法被拆分

信使可以购买圣剑,但是不能捡起地上的圣剑

圣剑部分共享

圣剑有两个状态:

原剑: 购买物品时的初始状态

自由剑: 被一个敌人捡起之后的状态

圣剑是法师之战三把武器其中一把:“由神亲自交予反叛军之手”

圣剑也是少部分在地上不是一个宝盒的物品


血棘(Bloodthorn):

描述:一把亵渎之刃,受害者临死前的每次挣扎都会使其砍得更深。

这游戏另一个百分之百必中的东西

在2017年7月14日更新之前,血棘的主动技能,灵魂撕裂,没有一个官方名称。该名称是从Dota 2 Wiki得到的并且官方在Dota 2中使用

散华(Sange):

描述:散华是一把异常精准的武器,会自动寻找对方的弱点所在。

这件物品以Sange命名,一个来自梦幻之星Online系列的武器

力丸的饰品,背刺神兵散华,是基于散华的

夜叉(Yasha):

描述:夜叉可以称得上有史以来最轻巧的武器。

引用自梦幻之星Online系列的一把武士刀

夜叉是表示类似恶魔的超自然灵体的一个日本名词

夜叉这一词起源于印度教,有“迅捷鬼”之意,迅猛彪悍,佛教将其纳入天龙八部众,有“秘闻金刚”一称。在进入中国后,夜叉一词衍生出大量演绎形象,如阴间的鬼使,或龙王的跟班(巡海夜叉),大多形容可怖。

力丸的饰品,迅捷之刃夜叉,是基于夜叉的

慧光(Kaya):

描述:一位闻名遐迩的女巫师手上的法杖,已经失落了上万年。

这件物品的内部名称在2017年11月30日更新之前曾经为Trident

“KAYA”是大麻在塔法里教文化的代名词

而慧光是一个佛教高僧的法号

回音战刃(Echo Sabre):

描述:一把看起来特别快速的战刃,其中注入了共鸣魔力。

在2017年7月14日更新之前,回音战刃的被动技能,回音一击没有一个官方名称。该名称是从Dota 2 Wiki得到的并且官方在Dota 2中使用

beta版图标


beta版图标感觉还不错

回音一击

幻象不可继承此效果 部份无视技能免疫

技能属性:被动 影响目标:敌人

近战攻击可以快速攻击两次。两次攻击都将减缓100%移动速度,每次持续0.8秒。

攻击速度加成:490

攻击次数:1

移动速度减缓:100%

减速持续时间:0.8

冷却: 5

部份无视技能免疫可以对技能免疫敌人触发,不能对技能免疫敌人减速,如果debuff在技能免疫之前施加并且没有被驱散,仍然会造成减速

此技能仅对近战英雄有效。

触发时,增加使用者490点攻击速度,直到下一次攻击

这意味着他不能保证提供完整的攻击速度,也可以被强力的攻击速度降低克制

攻击速度没有设定持续时间,他会持续到使用者发出他第二次攻击,与下一次攻击时间无关

由于只是一个简单的攻击速度加成,因此取消第二次攻击可以将攻击速度"存起来"留待之后使用

第二次攻击不是一个即时攻击,他使用常规的攻击动作时间和攻击冷却

移动速度减缓在触发的攻击和触发之后的攻击时施加

这意味着通过一次触发可以减速两个敌人,只需要在触发的攻击之后转移攻击目标

该攻击先施加debuff,再造成其自身的伤害

回音战刃也会在即时攻击上触发,但是,因为他们是即时攻击,因此浪费了攻击速度

多个减速实例不叠加,但是会刷新持续时间

能够对所有东西触发,包括建筑,守卫和友军,减速会对友军施加,但不会对建筑和守卫施加

黯灭(Desolator):

描述:这件邪恶并且嗜血的武器,通常用于拷打政治犯。

对同一个单位不叠加,但会刷新持续时间

该攻击先施加debuff,再造成其自身的伤害

对所有单位有效,包括守卫,建筑和友方单位

将远程英雄的弹道粒子特效替换成一个红色弹道

与枯萎之石的次级腐蚀完全叠加

在DotA1中,这件物品的全称为"Stygian Desolator",引用自游戏混乱Online


Stygian就是冥河Styx的变体了,Desolator的意思是“辐射工兵”,也就是让周围的一切都变成荒芜的人。这个名字来自希腊地下世界的河流的名字,Styx河(Stygian,意思是对Styx河的所有权)。这条河是违反常理的,因为Styx河的河水被认为能赐予接触它的人永恒。

散夜对剑(Sange and Yasha):

描述:散华和夜叉经过月光的照耀而产生共鸣,双剑合璧发挥出更大的威力。

这件物品是致敬梦幻之星游戏系列的,特别是梦幻之星Online

暗夜魔王称呼散夜对剑为"伙伴" 可爱的散夜对剑,我最爱的伙伴。

力丸的饰品捆绑包,散夜对剑,是基于散夜对剑的并且共享其名字

斯嘉蒂之眼(Eye of Skadi):

描述:极度罕见的古物,由苍空之龙看管。

Skaði(斯嘉蒂)是在北欧神话中的冬天之神

Skaði(Skadi)在古诺尔斯语和冰岛语中表示"伤害",发音为"Skathi"

Þjazi(Thiazi),北欧神话中Skadi的父亲,他的双眼被放置在夜空中作为星星

雷神之锤(Mjollnir):

描述:索尔的魔法之锤,由矮人名匠布鲁克和艾崔打造。

Mjölnir是北欧神话中索尔锤子的名字



大概想写的都写完了。本来英语和文笔差到极点,感谢朋友们帮我完成这些东西。接下来就是准备零食看TI了,写这个时候让我想起高三天天打刀塔的时候了,心里倒是五味杂陈。不过现在应该算是玩弄DOTA2了,不怎么打DOTA2,开黑经常是个鸽子,买买饰品,观战看直播,肉搏梦符祭,SANDBOX观赏一些有趣的东西。如果有什么新的主意,有意思的想法会再写一篇文章的,大概就这么完结了。

Hubris is a dangerous, but necessary, affliction for any world class athlete. You need to believe that you're as good as anyone and better than most if you're to reach the top. That driving determination to prove the bastards wrong is one that is ingrained in the best. It's an unshakable belief that your will and skill can overcome anything.

Bradley Smith was never noted as a great talent on his route to the top, but he found a way to get there. Hard work, dedication and getting the most from himself was his ticket to MotoGP. Digging deeper was always the primary option for Smith coming through the ranks, and whether it was joining the Alberto Puig Academy as a 12 year old or racing a factory Aprilia in 125GP, Smith always did everything to get the most from himself.

Racing comes down to choices. The impact of decisions to make a move have reverberations as pronounced in the paddock as on the track. When Bradley Smith spoke at Mugello and said he'd retire rather than not race in MotoGP it was clear how slighted he felt by KTM moving on without him.

          Certify'em Has New Options for Automatically Issuing Certificates from Google Forms      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Certify'em is one of my favorite Google Forms Add-ons. With Certify'em activated you can automatically issue certificates to students when they get a passing (or better) score on a quiz in Google Forms. You can see a demonstration of how it works right here.

This week the developer of Certify'em, Dave Abouav, added some advanced options to the Add-on. The Add-on now lets you issue certificates as PDFs or as images. More significantly, you can now automatically issue certificates to students even if they don't have email addresses. In the advanced settings in Certify'em you will now see an option to issue certificates via Google Drive instead of via email. This is perfect for students who don't have email addresses but do have Google Drive accounts through your school's G Suite for Education account.

Senior UN official blasted for floating Israel's suspension from world body
A United Nations human rights expert is under fire after suggesting Israel could have its member status at the world body suspended over alleged violations of international law.

Michael Lynk, the special rapporteur for human rights in the Palestinian territories, made the remarks at a side event during a July session of the Human Rights Council -- the controversial panel the U.S. withdrew from last month.

Audio of the event, “Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory: Systematic Violations with Impunity,” was obtained by Fox News from NGO Monitor -- a Jerusalem-based research institute analyzing non-governmental organizations (NGOs) claiming to advance humanitarian agendas.

In that audio, Lynk describes Israel as an “illegal occupant,” and says “the international community has not simply the ability, but also the responsibility and obligation to bring [settlements] to an end.”

He then goes on to say that there are “a number of tools” that the international community can use to bring Israel back in line.
Amb. Danon blasts official who suggested Israel be suspended from U.N.
Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon harshly criticized a suggestion by UN official Michael Lynk that Israel be suspended from the world body over what the United Nations characterizes as violations of international law, Fox News reported Wednesday.

Lynk's comments is “another reason why the [Human Rights Council] lost its credibility,” Danon said.

“Mahmoud Abbas knows that actions such as this do nothing to encourage peace," Danon said in an interview on Fox News. "In fact, it actively works against it, and encourages incitement and a culture of hate."

“The international community has not simply the ability, but also the responsibility and obligation to bring [settlements] to an end,” Lynk, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories for the UN, told a July session of the Human Rights Council, adding that there are “a number of tools” the international community can use to change Israeli actions.

“It may mean reviewing or suspending Israel’s privileges as a state member in the United Nations,” Lynk said. “It may mean that countries in the world, particularly those with significant trading or political relationships with Israel, would review their relationships with Israel in the military, political, diplomatic and economic investment spheres. It may mean that Israel would face some forms of restrictions in its abilities to wind up trading.”

The United States withdrew from the Human Rights Council in June, citing what it characterized as the body's biased treatment of Israel and its failure to address serious abuses throughout the world.
Elliott Abrams: Saudi Arabia and Canada
What was the Canadian action that led to this fierce reaction? A tweet from Canada’s foreign minister saying “Very alarmed to learn that Samar Badawi, Raif Badawi’s sister, has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia,” and that “Canada stands together with the Badawi family in this difficult time, and we continue to strongly call for the release of both Raif and Samar Badawi.” And the following day a tweet from the foreign ministry saying “Canada is gravely concerned about additional arrests of civil society and women’s rights activists in #SaudiArabia, including Samar Badawi. We urge the Saudi authorities to immediately release them and all other peaceful #humanrights activists.”

These are not harsh or shocking statements. The Raif Badawi case has long been a matter of international concern and comment. The United States commented in 2015 that “We are greatly concerned by reports that human rights activist Raif Badawi will start facing the inhumane punishment of a 1,000 lashes, in addition to serving a 10-year sentence in prison for exercising his rights to freedom of expression and religion. The United States Government calls on Saudi authorities to cancel this brutal punishment and to review Badawi’s case and sentence.” This is surely tougher than the Canadian comments. Moreover, the United States had no actual link to the case whereas Badawi’s wife and three children are now Canadian citizens. In addition, there has been plenty of comment about the current combination in Saudi Arabia of social and economic reform with the government’s absolute insistence on setting the pace of change—and punishing Saudis who seek to increase it. For example, just days before the kingdom allowed women to drive it punished women activists who had long sought that change.

The Saudi position amounts to this: no government may comment on anything that happens in the kingdom. Any such comment is a violation of Saudi sovereignty. Thus the phrase in the Saudi statement that the Canadian comments were “against basic international norms and all international protocols.”
PATHETIC: Trudeau Gave $50 MILLION Of Our Taxpayer Dollars To The Palestinians. Then They Sided With Saudi Arabia & Condemned Us
Once again, Justin Trudeau has let Canada get played like a fool.

As I recently reported, the Trudeau government gave $50 MILLION of our taxpayer dollars to the Palestinians.

“$12.65 million will go to the Palestinians through the United Nations and other ‘international organizations,’ while most of the rest will go towards other NGOs who will disperse the money.”

But did that get us any goodwill?

NOPE.

After relations between us and the Saudis broke down, the Palestinians sided with Saudi Arabia and condemned us:

As noted in a recent report, “Palestinian news agency Wafa reported on Monday that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas stands with Saudi Arabia in a political row with Canada, rejecting what it called Ottawa’s “blatant interference” in Riyadh’s internal affairs. He also called on the Arab countries to stand by the Kingdom to reject and condemn the Canadian intervention in its internal affairs.”

So, Justin Trudeau took $50 million away from the Canadian People, and gave it to the Palestinians, who then sided with our opponent and condemned us.

How stupid can a government possibly be?

Why the hell are we giving our money to people who hate us and oppose everything we stand for?



Israel and Gaza: How did we get here?
In the years to follow, Hamas continued to misuse funds and supplies in Gaza. Over $120 million worth of concrete originally intended to develop civilian infrastructure was used to build terror tunnels to infiltrate Israel. These tunnels were used as early as 2006 in the kidnapping of IDF soldier, Sergeant 1st Class Gilad Shalit.

Since then, Hamas has continued to waste concrete on terror tunnels, and in the construction process, has killed more than 400 Palestinians, including at least 160 children. Attempts were made to smuggle weapons into Gaza via the Mediterranean Sea, which led to the imposition of a legal naval blockade. Additionally, rocket and mortar shell fire continued, inflicting wide-spread damage and trauma on Israel’s southern residents in particular, which lead to the development of the Iron Dome aerial defense system.

Today, the relationship between Israel and Gaza remains tense. Yet Gazan civilians are still allowed to enter Israel to receive medical treatment, pray, study, travel, and work on a daily basis. Israel regularly facilitates the transfer of humanitarian supplies to the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom Crossing, even in times of conflict, including during Operation Protective Edge in 2014.

Hamas remains accountable for controlling the Gaza Strip, and continues to put its terror-based goals above the needs of its people. They insist on inciting violence and wasting vital supplies on terror activity. The IDF will continue to operate as necessary to safeguard the security needs of the State of Israel, and is ready to defend Israeli civilians and sovereignty.
Hamas Source: 5-Year Truce to Include Return of 4 Israelis at Some Point
A truce between Hamas and Israel will be officially unveiled by the end of August, according to Turkey’s official news agency Anadolu, quoting a Hamas source.

The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that as part of the deal, which was brokered by Egypt and the UN with input from Turkey and Qatar, Hamas and Israel would initially observe a two-week trial cease-fire.

The truce, which is planned to last five years, would include the release of four Israelis: the remains of two fallen IDF soldiers and two living, mentally handicapped men who wondered across the Gaza border including two soldiers.

The Anadolu report did not specify at which stage of the truce the release would be carried out, nor whether or not it would involve releasing Hamas terrorists who are behind bars in Israel.

Under the agreement’s terms, according to the same Hamas official, the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip would be opened on a permanent basis, and Israeli restrictions on the Kerem Shalom border crossing would also be eased “dramatically.”
IDF closes roads near Gaza over fears of revenge attack
The military closed off a highway in southern Israel on Wednesday out of concerns that the Hamas terrorist group in the Gaza Strip may open fire at Israeli vehicles as revenge for an exchange the day before in which the army killed two Hamas members.

The military said the decision to close Route 25 and several smaller service roads near the border was made in light of recent threats by Hamas and after IDF soldiers saw that the terror group had begun abandoning several of its positions in the Strip — a move Hamas generally takes as a precaution before carrying out attacks against Israel.

“In light of Hamas statements and the evacuation of Hamas outposts, the Southern Command decided to increase readiness and to close a number of roadways in the Gaza periphery,” the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.
Terrorists shoot at civilians near Gaza
Terrorists from the Gaza Strip opened fire on civilian workers engaged in the construction of the barrier along the security fence near the northern Gaza Strip Wednesday afternoon.

According to the IDF, an engineering vehicle was struck by gunfire from Gaza.

No injuries were reported.

Earlier Tuesday, the IDF Southern Command decided to reinforce the Gaza Division and close several access routes in the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip in response to threats from the Hamas terrorist organization.
UN humanitarian agency calls on Israel to let fuel into Gaza Strip
A UN aid agency on Wednesday urged Israel to let emergency fuel into the Gaza Strip to avert the shutdown of hospitals and sanitation facilities.

Jamie McGoldrick, from the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, called Israel’s restriction of fuel imports “a dangerous practice, with grave consequences on the rights of people in Gaza.”

Israel halted the supply of petroleum and natural gas to Gaza last week after there was no pause in incendiary kites and balloons launched from Gaza into southern Israel, arson attacks that have gone on for months accompanied by border clashes. The violence has at times escalated into exchanges of fire on the border, rocket attacks from Gaza on southern Israeli cities, and Israeli airstrikes on Hamas targets.

Israel temporarily suspended fuel shipments to Gaza in July for similar reasons. The airborne arson attacks have started hundreds of fires that consumed thousands of acres of farmland and countryside, causing millions of shekels in damage.
Hearing the real story from Jewish National Fund-USA
A tour around “the Gaza Envelope,” the western Negev, reveals a conventional life dealing with unconventional circumstances.

Along open roads are bomb shelters, some even painted with beautiful patterns to make something so unnatural not seem intimidating to children who rely on fleeing to these shelters often on a daily basis – or even multiple times a day.

Some playgrounds are indoors, like the Indoor Recreation Center in Sderot. With a mere 15 seconds to run for cover, playing out in the open is a luxury children of the South can ill afford.

“We established the world’s first protected playground with the amazing Jewish National Fund-USA, spearheaded by CEO Russell F. Robinson, who invested heavily in the playground so children could play without fear,” remarked Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi.

“Sadly, the hundreds of kids who come here every day are used to this,” playground manager Shmuel Ohayon laments. “They are used to frequent drills in school, running to bomb shelters at home, and if there’s trauma, they have psychologists to speak to. Seventy-four percent of them have some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD].”
A Democratic Nation State of the Jewish People
As Prime Minister Netanyahu's Advisor for World Communities, part of my job is to listen to what people around the world have to say. Much of what I have heard from critics following the passage of Basic Law: Israel - Nation State of the Jewish People is mistaken and misinformed. The accusations about the new law's effects on Israeli democracy have no connection to the actual content or context of the law.

The new Basic Law was passed to fill a constitutional void. Israel, like the United Kingdom, lacks a written constitution and instead relies on a set of basic laws. Israel already has basic laws to protect individual freedoms (such as Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty). Israel lacked a basic law defining the identity and purpose of the state.

During the seven-year debate surrounding the Nation State Law, there was a broad consensus that a basic law was needed to define the identity of the country. However, the new basic law does not contradict or supersede the basic laws that protect and guarantee individual rights of all citizens regardless of ethnicity, religion or gender.

The new law does not erode a single right or protection of any minority. It actually reaffirms Israel's commitment to minority groups.

The new law also, for the first time, constitutionally enshrines Arabic as a language with "special status." It affirms that "the status given to the Arabic language before this law came into effect will not be harmed."
Isi Leibler: Hysteria over nation-state law
Most Israeli Arabs are happy to live in Israel – the only democracy in a region of barbaric conflict and dictatorships. They enjoy a higher standard of living and better opportunities than they would in any Arab country. An increasing number are engaged in professions and one need only enter an Israeli hospital where Arab and Jewish medical staff treat Jewish and Arab patients on a basis of equality, in order to repudiate slanders of apartheid or racism.

The rule of law applies to Arab citizens as it does to any other Israeli. They enjoy freedom of religion and do not live in fear of punitive amputations or decapitation as prevails in much of the region.

This law was designed to ratify classical Zionism, reject post-Zionism and reiterate that Israel is a Jewish state. Yet not a single clause can be construed as racist, denigrates minorities or suggests that they will be denied state support. Israel remains a democratic Jewish state with or without the law, which merely seeks to reinforce its identity.

There are legitimate grounds for criticizing the law, particularly errors of omission by the government due to a lack of foresight, but the hyperbole used by some of those opposing it is malicious and will foment hatred within Israel and provide aid to those nations seeking to besmirch us.
The masquerade is over
What's all the fuss about? The spirit of the nation-state law has engulfed Israel for decades already. The law says that the land of Israel is the historical homeland of the Jewish people; and that the state established in this land is the nation-state of the Jewish people in which they are realizing their natural, cultural, religious, and historical right to self-determination. According to the law, the realization of the right to self-determination in the State of Israel is exclusive to the Jewish people.

Here are a few other trivialities: Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Hebrew is the national language, and Arabic has a special status. The nation will be open to aliyah [Jewish immigration] and to an ingathering of the exiles. The state will be responsible for ensuring the safety of its citizens and other members of the Jewish people who are in distress or imprisoned because of their Jewishness or their Israeli citizenship. The state will work in the Diaspora to uphold the ties between it and the Jewish people abroad and will work to preserve the Jewish people's cultural, historical, and religious legacy in the Diaspora. The state sees national value in developing Jewish settlement and will take steps to encourage and promote new and existing settlements.

Any honest person will admit that the nation-state law is a clear expression of the political consensus in Israel. Most members of the Zionist parties would certainly sign a declaration like this one, if it wouldn't cause a political scandal. What's more, the vast majority of high school graduates can't understand the objection to it.
EU skips over Israel
The European Union has formulated a plan to establish a transportation infrastructure to connect Gaza to Judea and Samaria without informing or involving elements in Israel.

According to today's report on Reshet Bet as part of the plan it is proposed to build huge infrastructures also including "Area C" - places retained in the Oslo Accords under full Israeli control.

Formulation of the plan in the European Union took 18 months and is scheduled to take 30 years to implement. According to the plan, air- and seaports will be established, plus an extensive network of railways and roads that would connect all parts of Judea and Samaria to Gaza.

Although the plan includes many areas under Israeli control including in East Jerusalem, the EU did not bother to update the Civil Administration or other elements in Israel.

Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz said the plan was known to him. "I made it clear that Gaza will not connect to Judea and Samaria. All their plans are on paper and are completely unacceptable," Katz said in an interview with Reshet Bet.
Brazil presidential front-runner vows to close Palestinian embassy
Brazil’s front-running presidential candidate has announced he will close the Palestinian embassy in Brasilia in addition to moving his country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“Is Palestine a country? Palestine is not a country, so there should be no embassy here,” Jair Bolsonaro, a lawmaker from the Social Liberal Party, declared on Tuesday when the National Congress reopened after a three-week recess. “You do not negotiate with terrorists,” he added.

He particularly slammed the fact that Palestinian Authority diplomatic representation is located less than two miles (3.2 kilometers) from the Planalto Palace, Brazil’s government headquarters.

The right-wing lawmaker is a strong admirer and supporter of Israel. Elections are scheduled to be held in Brazil on October 7.

Brazil recognized Palestine as an independent state in 2010 as part of former far-left President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva’s alignment with extremist governments such as Iran and Libya. At that time, Brazil donated $10 million to the Hamas terror group, which rules the Gaza Strip and is vowed to Israel’s destruction. Lula’s political heir, Dilma Rousseff, continued the anti-Israel sentiment during her term until she was impeached in 2016.
French President Macron cancels Israel visit
A year ago, Macron said he would visit Israel and the Palestinian Authority in the spring of 2018 to push for the renewal of Israeli-Palestinians peace talks. The visit was then postponed from the spring to the fall, and has now been cancelled entirely.

Paris did not provide a reason for the cancellation, but it is likely tied to the political crisis Macron is facing at home after his bodyguard was filmed assaulting May Day protesters.

The incident sparked the biggest political crisis of Macron's tenure. Critics say Macron’s office failed to properly punish the head of his security detail or refer him promptly to judicial authorities over the incident. They say Macron’s handling of the case shows he has lost touch with ordinary people since taking office 14 months ago.

Footage showed the bodyguard, Alexandre Benalla, hitting a male protester and dragging away a woman while off duty and wearing a riot helmet and police tags.

“I alone bear responsibility. They can come and get me. I answer to the French people,” Macron told a gathering of members of parliament from his party.
Israel is suspected again of assassinating an enemy’s rocket scientist. Do these killings pay off?
Does the plan work?

Sometimes it backfires. The attempts on Arafat fed his legend and lent him stature among Palestinians. Israeli commandos in 1988 killed Khalil al-Wazir, also known as Abu Jihad, in Tunis in 1988. Abu Jihad, Arafat’s second-in-command, also was among the Palestinian leaders seeking accommodation with Israel. The killing did nothing to stop the first intifada. Israeli leaders believed that Abu Jihad was directing its violence, but it was a homegrown affair.

Other times, when a critical actor is killed, it appears to have results. The 1996 assassination of Ayyash, “The Engineer,” was followed by a rash of bus bombings believed to have been planned before his death – and then several years of relative quiet.

Schanzer said the policy may work in conjunction with an overall strategy. The campaign against Iran’s nuclear scientists, he said, was coupled with cyber warfare that for a time crippled Iran’s uranium enrichment and tough sanctions that slowed its nuclear program.

“Israelis have always used targeted assassination as not the only means but as one element of a broader strategy,” he said.
Russia and Israel reach understanding on Golan border line
Israel and Russia have reached an understanding to ensure the preservation of the 1974 cease-fire line on the Golan Heights, according to Israel’s Ambassador to Russia Gary Koren.

According to a TASS Russian News Agency report, Koren – who met with Russian journalists in Stavropol in southern Russia Monday – said, “we coordinated the arrangement under which Russia pledged to make sure, as it were, that the Syrian Army will not cross the cease-fire line established under the 1974 agreement. It looks like everything is functioning for the time being. I hope it will be so in the future, as well.”

Koren said Israel insisted on the full withdrawal of Iranian troops from Syria.

The 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement between Israel and Syria, which followed the Yom Kippur War, separated Israel and Syrian troops and created a 235-km. buffer zone in the Golan Heights. Israel demands the buffer zone be respected, even as it is deeply concerned that Iranian or Shia forces moving south with Syrian President Bashar Assad’s troops may try to violate it.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed during his visit to Moscow in July that respecting the Separation of Forces Agreement was a red line for Israel in Syria.
Israeli UN Envoy Urges New Head of South Lebanon Peacekeeping Force to Push Back Harder Against Hezbollah
Italian Maj. Gen. Stefano Del Col replaced Irish Maj. Gen. Michael Beary as the new commander of the UN peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon on Tuesday — a development that was welcomed by a top Israeli diplomat.

“UNIFIL is an important force, with more than 10,000 soldiers,” Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said in a statement. “Its more robust mandate is designed to push back against the blatant, unauthorized arms buildup of Hezbollah, a proxy of Iran, in southern Lebanon. With a new commander, there is a new opportunity to fulfill more of this important mission.”

Danon’s office explained: “UNIFIL’s mandate has been to restore peace and security to the Israeli – Lebanese border. Following the Second Lebanon War in 2006, its mandate was expanded to include monitoring the area between the Blue Line and Litani River, and keep it free of armed personnel, other than Lebanese government or UNIFIL forces. Last September, the US and Israel worked together to further expand UNIFIL’s mandate by authorizing patrols with Lebanese forces and requiring reports when peacekeepers run into Hezbollah roadblocks.”

Recent UNIFIL commanders — including Beary, who assumed the position in July 2016 — have all served terms of 2-3 years.
Druze-Israeli advances as Iraqi foe refuses to fight
Israel’s Amit Mdah advanced to the semifinals at the IFMA Youth Muaythai World Championships in Bangkok this week when his Iraqi opponent refused to compete in their quarterfinal match.

Mdah, 17, a resident of the village of Kisra-Sumei in the Western Galilee, holds the European title and won a bronze medal at the World Youth Championships a year ago. This time he was guaranteed a medal after his Iraqi rival Mohammed Jalal did not appear in the battle against him. Before that he won 10-9 against Hamdan Mohammed from the United Arab Emirates.

The protest of the Druze community in the wake of the Nation-State Law occupies one of the main topics of discussion in Israeli society these days. However, Druze athletes continue to represent the country successfully, bring honor, and also suffer from anti-Israeli behavior by competitors from Arab countries.

Mdah, who competes in the under-57 kg category, faced Russian Mohammed Yusuf Momonhomov late Tuesday in the semifinals.

The Israeli delegation to the championships includes eight male athletes and two female athletes, aged 11 to 17. Before the competition, the young athletes were in a training camp in Thailand.
Israel helps PA Arabs make pilgrimage to Mecca
The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), headed by Maj. Gen. Kamil Abu Rokun, prepares every year for the passage of thousands of Arabs from all over Judea and Samaria to Mecca, Saudi Arabia via the Allenby Bridge.

In a post to the Arabic COGAT Facebook page, Maj. Gen. Kamil Abu Rukun wrote to the Palestinian Authority residents: "We are prepared for a quick and easy passage for all the pilgrims from Judea and Samaria who are observing the holiday. I wish you and the Muslim world a pleasant and happy journey, and a blessed holiday."

Approximately 5,200 PA residents are expected to cross the Allenby Bridge this week to make the pilgrimage to Mecca, which is known as the Hajj. The pilgrimage is being coordinated with the Palestinian Authority, Jordan and the Airports Authority. 88 buses were organized to bring the pilgrims across on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

In addition, a special area was established in the city of Jericho, called "State of Al-Khawaja", to arrange and register residents in advance for the Allenby Bridge buses. From the Allenby Bridge the pilgrims continue on buses through Jordan to Mecca.
Palestinians jailed for trying to rob biblical archaeological site
Three Palestinians were sent to 36 days in prison on Tuesday for damaging and attempting to rob a major archaeological site in the northern West Bank last month.

The men, whose names haven’t been released, were arrested at 1:00 a.m. on July 18 at the location of the ancient town of Sebastia, which contains overlapping layers of history dating back nearly 3,000 years.

They were caught by an inspector for the archaeology division of the Civil Administration, the Israeli body that oversees civilian affairs in the West Bank, while carrying digging equipment and a metal detector. The site, just outside the city of Nablus, was found vandalized, Hebrew-language media reported.

A hilltop capital of biblical kings later ruled by Roman conquerors, crusaders, and Ottomans, Sebastia — also known nowadays as the Samaria National Park — is caught between conflicting Israeli and Palestinian jurisdictions, and the site has been largely neglected by both sides for the past two decades. Beyond the decay, unauthorized diggers and thieves have taken advantage of the lack of oversight to make off with priceless artifacts.

Congress Forces Al Jazeera, Other Foreign Media to Disclose Ties
Congress recently approved new legislation that would force foreign-owned media organizations such as Qatar's Al Jazeera to register as a foreign agent under U.S. law.

The legislation, included in the annual National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, would mandate that foreign-owned media organizations register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA, a move that would shine greater sunlight on these organizations' ties to foreign governments.

Al Jazeera in particular has become a poster child for those in Congress backing the legislation. A delegation of lawmakers, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.), have been championing the legislation for months, arguing that Al Jazeera and others should be forced to admit their close ties to foreign governments.

Proponents of the legislation argue that media outlets such as Al Jazeera have tried to hide their agenda behind the guise of objective journalism. Al Jazeera, for instance, recently faced intense scrutiny on Capitol Hill for running a secret, months-long spy operation on American Jewish activists and their allies in Congress on order from the Qatari government.
Iran has only begun to feel the pain of Trump’s sanctions
As the Iranian regime reels under the strain of renewed sanctions, the Trump administration is already preparing the next phase.

We see too little of it in our press, but Iranians are increasingly taking to the streets and the clerics’ hold on power is weakening.

And it’s about to get worse for the regime. A new round of US sanctions, announced in advance, kicked in Monday. It restricts currency transfers and bans trade in gold, silver, aluminum, steel and other metals.

Most of the new sanctions have already been factored in, changing the way the world does business in Iran. European politicians, who’ve sanctified President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal, are calling on companies to stay put and do business in Iran, as the seven-party Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action dictates.

But business is business.

After the nuke deal was signed, France’s Renault was eager to position itself for the day all sanctions would be removed, cutting deals to dominate Iran’s car market. Anticipating Monday’s sanctions, however, Renault announced an end to all its Iran businesses in July — even though it sells no cars in America.
Experts: New U.S. Sanctions on Iran Impose Cost on Regime’s Hostile Behavior
The first round of U.S. sanctions reinstated against Iran this week makes clear to the Islamic Republic the Trump administration's willingness to financially squeeze the regime until it curbs its destabilizing behavior, according to regional experts.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned that firms doing business with Iran would be blocked from the U.S. market as new sanctions hit the country despite appeals from Washington's allies.

The sanctions are part of a steadily increasing pressure campaign implemented after Trump in May decided to withdraw the United States from the Obama-era Iran nuclear accord that sought to limit Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

The administration will ratchet up pressure on Tehran's economy in early November when U.S. sanctions on Iranian oil are due to snapback.

The renewed U.S. sanctions go into effect as protests escalate against Iran's hardline ruling party over its immense military spending, which has crippled an already weak Iranian economy.
Trump's Ambassador To Germany Scores Another Victory Against Iran
U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell is quietly convincing German companies to discontinue business with Iran.

Grenell has scored a series of victories in recent days by successfully lobbying against a $400 million payment from the German central bank to the Islamic Republic and convincing car company Daimler to cancel expansion plans in the country.

Many German businesses rushed to do business with Iran after the signing of the nuclear deal in 2015.

The Trump administration, however, has pulled out of the nuclear deal and announced Monday that it would re-impose the same economic sanctions on Iran that the Obama administration removed as part of the deal. The new economic sanctions will limit Iranian ability to use the U.S. dollar, to trade in precious metals, and target its import/export businesses to the United States.

The sanctions also affect any business that wishes do business with U.S. entities.

“The Trump administration intends to fully enforce the sanctions reimposed against Iran, and those who fail to wind down activities with Iran risk severe consequences,” the White House warned in a Monday release.
Will US sanctions really stop Iran from backing terror?
Will the economic sanction imposed by Washington on Iran cause it to abandon the path of terror? For the time being, as one expert told Israel Hayom on Tuesday, the answer appears to be no.

"To understand the influence of sanctions on the Iranian regime's behavior, you must first understand the modus operandi of Iranian banks and the Revolutionary Guard Corps,"explained Yossi Mansharof, a researcher of Iran and Shiite militias at the University of Haifa's Ezri Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies.

"More than a few Iranian banks were included in the sanctions that were in place before the nuclear deal in 2015, because they were involved in money laundering for the Revolutionary Guards. Over the past six years, several European banks have been fined billions of dollars by the American authorities after admitting to helping the Iranian regime bypass the sanctions and launder billions of dollars," he said.
