          3 disheartened students in Chitral attempt suicide over exam results       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Three students living in different areas of Chitral attempted to end their lives on Tuesday, reportedly after they received their intermediate exam results and felt disheartened over their performance, police said.

The exam scores were released by colleges at 4pm on Monday but due to poor internet facilities in the region and excessive load on the website, many students were only able to see their results late Monday night or early Tuesday morning.

One girl hailing from Chitral's Reech area, who was described by her family members to have been a very bright and studious girl, jumped into the Chitral river after receiving what she perceived to be a "low score" in her intermediate examination.

Her parents in their statement to the police said that they noticed her unusually quiet and withdrawn behaviour before she went missing.

Police conducted an investigation into her disappearance which led to the discovery that she had flung herself into the river. Her body was later recovered by rescue officials.

Similarly, another girl from the Garam Chashma area also threw herself into the river after obtaining her intermediate exam result.

She used to live with her maternal grandfather, which made it easy for her to attend school. She too was reported to have been sad after receiving her scores.

Her body is yet to be recovered by the police who say that rescue operations are still underway.

In another shocking incident in Chitral's Lot Koh valley, a boy attempted to kill himself with a gun after receiving word from a friend that he had failed in one subject in his intermediate exams while his brother managed to clear them all.

Feeling depressed at the news, the boy placed a gun under his chin and shot himself. He miraculously survived the incident and was rushed to the hospital for medical attention.

According to Jamshed Ahmed, the police official in charge at the Shoghor police station, the boy is currently in a very critical condition with his face badly damaged and is being shifted to Peshawar.

Though it is believed by family members in all three cases that the students were saddened by their results and this was in all likelihood the reason for them to take such drastic measures, police officials say they will investigate the incidents from all possible angles.

ประวัติความเป็นมา

ของ สวนสัตว์ดุสิต จากเว็บไซต์ dusit.zoothailand.org

สวนสัตว์ดุสิต แต่เดิมเรียก สวนดุสิตหรือ เขาดินวนา พระบาทสมเด็จพระจุลจอมเกล้าเจ้าอยู่หัวรัชกาลที่ 5 ทรงพระกรุณาโปรดเกล้าฯ ให้สร้างขึ้นตั้งแต่ปี พ.ศ.2435 หลังจากที่พระองค์ได้ทอดพระเนตรกิจการสวนพฤกษชาติของต่างประเทศและพบว่าสวนพฤกษชาติเป็นสถานที่ที่ให้ความรู้ความเพลิดเพลิน และเป็นที่พักผ่อนหย่อนใจของประชาชน จึงมีพระราชดำริให้จัดสร้างขึ้นในประเทศไทยบ้าง โดยโปรดเกล้าฯ ให้สร้างขึ้นในพื้นที่ราบทางด้านทิศตะวันออกติดคลองเปรมประชากร (ถนนพระราม 5) ด้วยการขุดสระน้ำใหญ่ ประกอบคูคลองระบายน้ำ และถนน แล้วนำดินขึ้นมาเป็นเนินเขา เรียกว่า เขาดิน และรอบๆเขาดินนั้น ทรงโปรดเกล้าฯ ให้ปลูกลงพรรณไม้นานาชนิด สร้างขึ้นเป็นสวนพฤกษชาติ สำหรับส่วนพระองค์ เรียกว่า วนา รวมอาณาเขตส่วนนี้ทรงโปรดเรียกว่า เขาดินวนา โดยในขั้นต้นพระองค์ให้สร้างขึ้นสำหรับ เป็นที่ประพาส ทรงพระเกษมสำราญส่วนพระองค์ และข้าราชบริภารฝ่ายในก่อน ดังนั้น สวนดุสิต หรือ เขาดินวนา จึงเป็นส่วนหนึ่งในเขตพระราชฐานพระราชวังดุสิต ต่อมา ในรัชสมัยพระบาทสมเด็จพระปกเกล้าเจ้าอยู่หัว รัชกาลที่ 7 ทรงมีพระราชดำริที่จะทำนุบำรุงสวนแห่งนี้ให้กว้างขวาง และดีกว่าที่เป็นอยู่ และเปิดให้ประชาชนมาเที่ยวพักผ่อนหย่อนใจด้วย

ภายหลังจากการเปลี่ยนแปลงการปกครอง พ.ศ.2575 แล้ว คณะรัฐบาลจอมพล ป. พิบูลสงคราม จึงได้กราบบังคมทูลขอพระราชทานสวนดุสิต ให้ดำเนินการจัดทำเป็นสวนสาธารณะ และเป็นที่พักผ่อน หย่อนใจของประชาชน ในเวลานั้นพระองค์เจ้าทิพอาภาเป็นผู้สำเร็จราชการแทนพระองค์ได้พระราชทานอนุมัติในนามของ พระบาทสมเด็จพระเจ้าอยู่หัวอานันทมหิดลรัชกาลที่ 8 ให้เทศบาลนครกรุงเทพรับบริเวณสวนดุสิต หรือ เขาดินวนา สนามเสือป่า และสวนอัมพร มาจัดเป็นสวนสาธารณะได้

จากนั้นทางเทศบาลนครกรุงเทพ ได้จัดการย้ายกวางดาว และสัตว์ชนิดต่างๆ มาจากสวนอัมพร และ ย้ายสัตว์บางชนิด เช่น จระเข้ ลิง จากสวนสราญรมย์ มาไว้ที่เขาดินวนา และได้ขอให้ทางสำนักพระราชวัง ส่งช้างหลวงมาให้ประชาชนได้ชมในวันอาทิตย์ และเมื่อปรับปรุงสิ่งก่อสร้างต่างๆ เรียบร้อยแล้วทางเทศบาล นครกรุงเทพจึงเปิดสวนดุสิตให้ประชาชนเที่ยวชม และพักผ่อนหย่อนใจได้เมื่อวันที่ 18 มีนาคม พ.ศ. 2481 และให้เรียกสวนดุสิตนี้ว่า สวนสัตว์ดุสิต ซึ่งถือได้ว่าเป็นสวนสัตว์แห่งแรกในประเทศไทย

Sven Longshanks steps into Eternal Reich’s shoes for the 14th Audio Insurgency, beginning with a classic from Tour De Force that mixes so many different styles together it defies categorizing.

After that we have Kangz of Blitz with a foray into breakbeat territory, leading smoothly into a lush drum and bass remix by Wolfsschanze.

Xurious is up next and doing what he can to draw attention to the Faith Goldy for Toronto Mayor campaign, with a tune that features all his signature sounds.

Faustkampf kick off the metal section with some funky-ass bass licks, while Blutbanner blend operatic vocals with melodic twin guitars to good effect.

Sunwheel shake the cobwebs away with probably the heaviest track in this week’s selection that paves the way to a classic piece of viking metal from Blackout called aptly enough ‘Viking’.

Brigada Totenkopf have re-imagined one of the best tunes to come out of the second world war and Filbert Applebag has finished adding the final touches to ‘Fight for White Rights’.

White Man’s Burden are a new discovery and just as this was being recorded, they dropped this new tune which has to be their best yet, ‘David Duke is a Hero’.

Dissident II provide this week’s ballad, a really catchy acoustic sing-a-long and Manchester neo-folk band Winterfylleth finish the podcast sat around a campfire with their highly atmospheric ‘Embers’.

The Uninhabitable Earth
Famine, economic collapse, a sun that cooks us: What climate change could wreak — sooner than you think.

By David Wallace-Wells

In the jungles of Costa Rica, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it’s over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out. Fossils by Heartless Machine
July 9, 2017

I. ‘Doomsday’
Peering beyond scientific reticence.

It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. And yet the swelling seas — and the cities they will drown — have so dominated the picture of global warming, and so overwhelmed our capacity for climate panic, that they have occluded our perception of other threats, many much closer at hand. Rising oceans are bad, in fact very bad; but fleeing the coastline will not be enough.

Indeed, absent a significant adjustment to how billions of humans conduct their lives, parts of the Earth will likely become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century.

Even when we train our eyes on climate change, we are unable to comprehend its scope. This past winter, a string of days 60 and 70 degrees warmer than normal baked the North Pole, melting the permafrost that encased Norway’s Svalbard seed vault — a global food bank nicknamed “Doomsday,” designed to ensure that our agriculture survives any catastrophe, and which appeared to have been flooded by climate change less than ten years after being built.

The Doomsday vault is fine, for now: The structure has been secured and the seeds are safe. But treating the episode as a parable of impending flooding missed the more important news. Until recently, permafrost was not a major concern of climate scientists, because, as the name suggests, it was soil that stayed permanently frozen. But Arctic permafrost contains 1.8 trillion tons of carbon, more than twice as much as is currently suspended in the Earth’s atmosphere. When it thaws and is released, that carbon may evaporate as methane, which is 34 times as powerful a greenhouse-gas warming blanket as carbon dioxide when judged on the timescale of a century; when judged on the timescale of two decades, it is 86 times as powerful. In other words, we have, trapped in Arctic permafrost, twice as much carbon as is currently wrecking the atmosphere of the planet, all of it scheduled to be released at a date that keeps getting moved up, partially in the form of a gas that multiplies its warming power 86 times over.

Maybe you know that already — there are alarming stories in the news every day, like those, last month, that seemed to suggest satellite data showed the globe warming since 1998 more than twice as fast as scientists had thought (in fact, the underlying story was considerably less alarming than the headlines). Or the news from Antarctica this past May, when a crack in an ice shelf grew 11 miles in six days, then kept going; the break now has just three miles to go — by the time you read this, it may already have met the open water, where it will drop into the sea one of the biggest icebergs ever, a process known poetically as “calving.”


Watch: How Climate Change Is Creating More Powerful Hurricanes

But no matter how well-informed you are, you are surely not alarmed enough. Over the past decades, our culture has gone apocalyptic with zombie movies and Mad Max dystopias, perhaps the collective result of displaced climate anxiety, and yet when it comes to contemplating real-world warming dangers, we suffer from an incredible failure of imagination. The reasons for that are many: the timid language of scientific probabilities, which the climatologist James Hansen once called “scientific reticence” in a paper chastising scientists for editing their own observations so conscientiously that they failed to communicate how dire the threat really was; the fact that the country is dominated by a group of technocrats who believe any problem can be solved and an opposing culture that doesn’t even see warming as a problem worth addressing; the way that climate denialism has made scientists even more cautious in offering speculative warnings; the simple speed of change and, also, its slowness, such that we are only seeing effects now of warming from decades past; our uncertainty about uncertainty, which the climate writer Naomi Oreskes in particular has suggested stops us from preparing as though anything worse than a median outcome were even possible; the way we assume climate change will hit hardest elsewhere, not everywhere; the smallness (two degrees) and largeness (1.8 trillion tons) and abstractness (400 parts per million) of the numbers; the discomfort of considering a problem that is very difficult, if not impossible, to solve; the altogether incomprehensible scale of that problem, which amounts to the prospect of our own annihilation; simple fear. But aversion arising from fear is a form of denial, too.

In between scientific reticence and science fiction is science itself. This article is the result of dozens of interviews and exchanges with climatologists and researchers in related fields and reflects hundreds of scientific papers on the subject of climate change. What follows is not a series of predictions of what will happen — that will be determined in large part by the much-less-certain science of human response. Instead, it is a portrait of our best understanding of where the planet is heading absent aggressive action. It is unlikely that all of these warming scenarios will be fully realized, largely because the devastation along the way will shake our complacency. But those scenarios, and not the present climate, are the baseline. In fact, they are our schedule.

The present tense of climate change — the destruction we’ve already baked into our future — is horrifying enough. Most people talk as if Miami and Bangladesh still have a chance of surviving; most of the scientists I spoke with assume we’ll lose them within the century, even if we stop burning fossil fuel in the next decade. Two degrees of warming used to be considered the threshold of catastrophe: tens of millions of climate refugees unleashed upon an unprepared world. Now two degrees is our goal, per the Paris climate accords, and experts give us only slim odds of hitting it. The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issues serial reports, often called the “gold standard” of climate research; the most recent one projects us to hit four degrees of warming by the beginning of the next century, should we stay the present course. But that’s just a median projection. The upper end of the probability curve runs as high as eight degrees — and the authors still haven’t figured out how to deal with that permafrost melt. The IPCC reports also don’t fully account for the albedo effect (less ice means less reflected and more absorbed sunlight, hence more warming); more cloud cover (which traps heat); or the dieback of forests and other flora (which extract carbon from the atmosphere). Each of these promises to accelerate warming, and the history of the planet shows that temperature can shift as much as five degrees Celsius within thirteen years. The last time the planet was even four degrees warmer, Peter Brannen points out in The Ends of the World, his new history of the planet’s major extinction events, the oceans were hundreds of feet higher.*

The Earth has experienced five mass extinctions before the one we are living through now, each so complete a slate-wiping of the evolutionary record it functioned as a resetting of the planetary clock, and many climate scientists will tell you they are the best analog for the ecological future we are diving headlong into. Unless you are a teenager, you probably read in your high-school textbooks that these extinctions were the result of asteroids. In fact, all but the one that killed the dinosaurs were caused by climate change produced by greenhouse gas. The most notorious was 252 million years ago; it began when carbon warmed the planet by five degrees, accelerated when that warming triggered the release of methane in the Arctic, and ended with 97 percent of all life on Earth dead. We are currently adding carbon to the atmosphere at a considerably faster rate; by most estimates, at least ten times faster. The rate is accelerating. This is what Stephen Hawking had in mind when he said, this spring, that the species needs to colonize other planets in the next century to survive, and what drove Elon Musk, last month, to unveil his plans to build a Mars habitat in 40 to 100 years. These are nonspecialists, of course, and probably as inclined to irrational panic as you or I. But the many sober-minded scientists I interviewed over the past several months — the most credentialed and tenured in the field, few of them inclined to alarmism and many advisers to the IPCC who nevertheless criticize its conservatism — have quietly reached an apocalyptic conclusion, too: No plausible program of emissions reductions alone can prevent climate disaster.

Over the past few decades, the term “Anthropocene” has climbed out of academic discourse and into the popular imagination — a name given to the geologic era we live in now, and a way to signal that it is a new era, defined on the wall chart of deep history by human intervention. One problem with the term is that it implies a conquest of nature (and even echoes the biblical “dominion”). And however sanguine you might be about the proposition that we have already ravaged the natural world, which we surely have, it is another thing entirely to consider the possibility that we have only provoked it, engineering first in ignorance and then in denial a climate system that will now go to war with us for many centuries, perhaps until it destroys us. That is what Wallace Smith Broecker, the avuncular oceanographer who coined the term “global warming,” means when he calls the planet an “angry beast.” You could also go with “war machine.” Each day we arm it more.

II. Heat Death

Humans, like all mammals, are heat engines; surviving means having to continually cool off, like panting dogs. For that, the temperature needs to be low enough for the air to act as a kind of refrigerant, drawing heat off the skin so the engine can keep pumping. At seven degrees of warming, that would become impossible for large portions of the planet’s equatorial band, and especially the tropics, where humidity adds to the problem; in the jungles of Costa Rica, for instance, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it’s over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out.

Climate-change skeptics point out that the planet has warmed and cooled many times before, but the climate window that has allowed for human life is very narrow, even by the standards of planetary history. At 11 or 12 degrees of warming, more than half the world’s population, as distributed today, would die of direct heat. Things almost certainly won’t get that hot this century, though models of unabated emissions do bring us that far eventually. This century, and especially in the tropics, the pain points will pinch much more quickly even than an increase of seven degrees. The key factor is something called wet-bulb temperature, which is a term of measurement as home-laboratory-kit as it sounds: the heat registered on a thermometer wrapped in a damp sock as it’s swung around in the air (since the moisture evaporates from a sock more quickly in dry air, this single number reflects both heat and humidity). At present, most regions reach a wet-bulb maximum of 26 or 27 degrees Celsius; the true red line for habitability is 35 degrees. What is called heat stress comes much sooner.

Michael Oppenheimer: Only 10 Percent Chance We Meet Paris Targets
Actually, we’re about there already. Since 1980, the planet has experienced a 50-fold increase in the number of places experiencing dangerous or extreme heat; a bigger increase is to come. The five warmest summers in Europe since 1500 have all occurred since 2002, and soon, the IPCC warns, simply being outdoors that time of year will be unhealthy for much of the globe. Even if we meet the Paris goals of two degrees warming, cities like Karachi and Kolkata will become close to uninhabitable, annually encountering deadly heat waves like those that crippled them in 2015. At four degrees, the deadly European heat wave of 2003, which killed as many as 2,000 people a day, will be a normal summer. At six, according to an assessment focused only on effects within the U.S. from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, summer labor of any kind would become impossible in the lower Mississippi Valley, and everybody in the country east of the Rockies would be under more heat stress than anyone, anywhere, in the world today. As Joseph Romm has put it in his authoritative primer Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know, heat stress in New York City would exceed that of present-day Bahrain, one of the planet’s hottest spots, and the temperature in Bahrain “would induce hyperthermia in even sleeping humans.” The high-end IPCC estimate, remember, is two degrees warmer still. By the end of the century, the World Bank has estimated, the coolest months in tropical South America, Africa, and the Pacific are likely to be warmer than the warmest months at the end of the 20th century. Air-conditioning can help but will ultimately only add to the carbon problem; plus, the climate-controlled malls of the Arab emirates aside, it is not remotely plausible to wholesale air-condition all the hottest parts of the world, many of them also the poorest. And indeed, the crisis will be most dramatic across the Middle East and Persian Gulf, where in 2015 the heat index registered temperatures as high as 163 degrees Fahrenheit. As soon as several decades from now, the hajj will become physically impossible for the 2 million Muslims who make the pilgrimage each year.

It is not just the hajj, and it is not just Mecca; heat is already killing us. In the sugarcane region of El Salvador, as much as one-fifth of the population has chronic kidney disease, including over a quarter of the men, the presumed result of dehydration from working the fields they were able to comfortably harvest as recently as two decades ago. With dialysis, which is expensive, those with kidney failure can expect to live five years; without it, life expectancy is in the weeks. Of course, heat stress promises to pummel us in places other than our kidneys, too. As I type that sentence, in the California desert in mid-June, it is 121 degrees outside my door. It is not a record high.

III. The End of Food
Praying for cornfields in the tundra.

Climates differ and plants vary, but the basic rule for staple cereal crops grown at optimal temperature is that for every degree of warming, yields decline by 10 percent. Some estimates run as high as 15 or even 17 percent. Which means that if the planet is five degrees warmer at the end of the century, we may have as many as 50 percent more people to feed and 50 percent less grain to give them. And proteins are worse: It takes 16 calories of grain to produce just a single calorie of hamburger meat, butchered from a cow that spent its life polluting the climate with methane farts.

Pollyannaish plant physiologists will point out that the cereal-crop math applies only to those regions already at peak growing temperature, and they are right — theoretically, a warmer climate will make it easier to grow corn in Greenland. But as the pathbreaking work by Rosamond Naylor and David Battisti has shown, the tropics are already too hot to efficiently grow grain, and those places where grain is produced today are already at optimal growing temperature — which means even a small warming will push them down the slope of declining productivity. And you can’t easily move croplands north a few hundred miles, because yields in places like remote Canada and Russia are limited by the quality of soil there; it takes many centuries for the planet to produce optimally fertile dirt.

Drought might be an even bigger problem than heat, with some of the world’s most arable land turning quickly to desert. Precipitation is notoriously hard to model, yet predictions for later this century are basically unanimous: unprecedented droughts nearly everywhere food is today produced. By 2080, without dramatic reductions in emissions, southern Europe will be in permanent extreme drought, much worse than the American dust bowl ever was. The same will be true in Iraq and Syria and much of the rest of the Middle East; some of the most densely populated parts of Australia, Africa, and South America; and the breadbasket regions of China. None of these places, which today supply much of the world’s food, will be reliable sources of any. As for the original dust bowl: The droughts in the American plains and Southwest would not just be worse than in the 1930s, a 2015 NASA study predicted, but worse than any droughts in a thousand years — and that includes those that struck between 1100 and 1300, which “dried up all the rivers East of the Sierra Nevada mountains” and may have been responsible for the death of the Anasazi civilization.

Remember, we do not live in a world without hunger as it is. Far from it: Most estimates put the number of undernourished at 800 million globally. In case you haven’t heard, this spring has already brought an unprecedented quadruple famine to Africa and the Middle East; the U.N. has warned that separate starvation events in Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen could kill 20 million this year alone.

IV. Climate Plagues
What happens when the bubonic ice melts?

Rock, in the right spot, is a record of planetary history, eras as long as millions of years flattened by the forces of geological time into strata with amplitudes of just inches, or just an inch, or even less. Ice works that way, too, as a climate ledger, but it is also frozen history, some of which can be reanimated when unfrozen. There are now, trapped in Arctic ice, diseases that have not circulated in the air for millions of years — in some cases, since before humans were around to encounter them. Which means our immune systems would have no idea how to fight back when those prehistoric plagues emerge from the ice.

The Arctic also stores terrifying bugs from more recent times. In Alaska, already, researchers have discovered remnants of the 1918 flu that infected as many as 500 million and killed as many as 100 million — about 5 percent of the world’s population and almost six times as many as had died in the world war for which the pandemic served as a kind of gruesome capstone. As the BBC reported in May, scientists suspect smallpox and the bubonic plague are trapped in Siberian ice, too — an abridged history of devastating human sickness, left out like egg salad in the Arctic sun.

Experts caution that many of these organisms won’t actually survive the thaw and point to the fastidious lab conditions under which they have already reanimated several of them — the 32,000-year-old “extremophile” bacteria revived in 2005, an 8 million-year-old bug brought back to life in 2007, the 3.5 million–year–old one a Russian scientist self-injected just out of curiosity — to suggest that those are necessary conditions for the return of such ancient plagues. But already last year, a boy was killed and 20 others infected by anthrax released when retreating permafrost exposed the frozen carcass of a reindeer killed by the bacteria at least 75 years earlier; 2,000 present-day reindeer were infected, too, carrying and spreading the disease beyond the tundra.

What concerns epidemiologists more than ancient diseases are existing scourges relocated, rewired, or even re-evolved by warming. The first effect is geographical. Before the early-modern period, when adventuring sailboats accelerated the mixing of peoples and their bugs, human provinciality was a guard against pandemic. Today, even with globalization and the enormous intermingling of human populations, our ecosystems are mostly stable, and this functions as another limit, but global warming will scramble those ecosystems and help disease trespass those limits as surely as Cortés did. You don’t worry much about dengue or malaria if you are living in Maine or France. But as the tropics creep northward and mosquitoes migrate with them, you will. You didn’t much worry about Zika a couple of years ago, either.

As it happens, Zika may also be a good model of the second worrying effect — disease mutation. One reason you hadn’t heard about Zika until recently is that it had been trapped in Uganda; another is that it did not, until recently, appear to cause birth defects. Scientists still don’t entirely understand what happened, or what they missed. But there are things we do know for sure about how climate affects some diseases: Malaria, for instance, thrives in hotter regions not just because the mosquitoes that carry it do, too, but because for every degree increase in temperature, the parasite reproduces ten times faster. Which is one reason that the World Bank estimates that by 2050, 5.2 billion people will be reckoning with it.

V. Unbreathable Air
A rolling death smog that suffocates millions.

Our lungs need oxygen, but that is only a fraction of what we breathe. The fraction of carbon dioxide is growing: It just crossed 400 parts per million, and high-end estimates extrapolating from current trends suggest it will hit 1,000 ppm by 2100. At that concentration, compared to the air we breathe now, human cognitive ability declines by 21 percent.

Other stuff in the hotter air is even scarier, with small increases in pollution capable of shortening life spans by ten years. The warmer the planet gets, the more ozone forms, and by mid-century, Americans will likely suffer a 70 percent increase in unhealthy ozone smog, the National Center for Atmospheric Research has projected. By 2090, as many as 2 billion people globally will be breathing air above the WHO “safe” level; one paper last month showed that, among other effects, a pregnant mother’s exposure to ozone raises the child’s risk of autism (as much as tenfold, combined with other environmental factors). Which does make you think again about the autism epidemic in West Hollywood.

Already, more than 10,000 people die each day from the small particles emitted from fossil-fuel burning; each year, 339,000 people die from wildfire smoke, in part because climate change has extended forest-fire season (in the U.S., it’s increased by 78 days since 1970). By 2050, according to the U.S. Forest Service, wildfires will be twice as destructive as they are today; in some places, the area burned could grow fivefold. What worries people even more is the effect that would have on emissions, especially when the fires ravage forests arising out of peat. Peatland fires in Indonesia in 1997, for instance, added to the global CO2 release by up to 40 percent, and more burning only means more warming only means more burning. There is also the terrifying possibility that rain forests like the Amazon, which in 2010 suffered its second “hundred-year drought” in the space of five years, could dry out enough to become vulnerable to these kinds of devastating, rolling forest fires — which would not only expel enormous amounts of carbon into the atmosphere but also shrink the size of the forest. That is especially bad because the Amazon alone provides 20 percent of our oxygen.

Then there are the more familiar forms of pollution. In 2013, melting Arctic ice remodeled Asian weather patterns, depriving industrial China of the natural ventilation systems it had come to depend on, which blanketed much of the country’s north in an unbreathable smog. Literally unbreathable. A metric called the Air Quality Index categorizes the risks and tops out at the 301-to-500 range, warning of “serious aggravation of heart or lung disease and premature mortality in persons with cardiopulmonary disease and the elderly” and, for all others, “serious risk of respiratory effects”; at that level, “everyone should avoid all outdoor exertion.” The Chinese “airpocalypse” of 2013 peaked at what would have been an Air Quality Index of over 800. That year, smog was responsible for a third of all deaths in the country.

VI. Perpetual War
The violence baked into heat.

Climatologists are very careful when talking about Syria. They want you to know that while climate change did produce a drought that contributed to civil war, it is not exactly fair to saythat the conflict is the result of warming; next door, for instance, Lebanon suffered the same crop failures. But researchers like Marshall Burke and Solomon Hsiang have managed to quantify some of the non-obvious relationships between temperature and violence: For every half-degree of warming, they say, societies will see between a 10 and 20 percent increase in the likelihood of armed conflict. In climate science, nothing is simple, but the arithmetic is harrowing: A planet five degrees warmer would have at least half again as many wars as we do today. Overall, social conflict could more than double this century.

This is one reason that, as nearly every climate scientist I spoke to pointed out, the U.S. military is obsessed with climate change: The drowning of all American Navy bases by sea-level rise is trouble enough, but being the world’s policeman is quite a bit harder when the crime rate doubles. Of course, it’s not just Syria where climate has contributed to conflict. Some speculate that the elevated level of strife across the Middle East over the past generation reflects the pressures of global warming — a hypothesis all the more cruel considering that warming began accelerating when the industrialized world extracted and then burned the region’s oil.

What accounts for the relationship between climate and conflict? Some of it comes down to agriculture and economics; a lot has to do with forced migration, already at a record high, with at least 65 million displaced people wandering the planet right now. But there is also the simple fact of individual irritability. Heat increases municipal crime rates, and swearing on social media, and the likelihood that a major-league pitcher, coming to the mound after his teammate has been hit by a pitch, will hit an opposing batter in retaliation. And the arrival of air-conditioning in the developed world, in the middle of the past century, did little to solve the problem of the summer crime wave.

VII. Permanent Economic Collapse
Dismal capitalism in a half-poorer world.

The murmuring mantra of global neoliberalism, which prevailed between the end of the Cold War and the onset of the Great Recession, is that economic growth would save us from anything and everything.
But in the aftermath of the 2008 crash, a growing number of historians studying what they call “fossil capitalism” have begun to suggest that the entire history of swift economic growth, which began somewhat suddenly in the 18th century, is not the result of innovation or trade or the dynamics of global capitalism but simply our discovery of fossil fuels and all their raw power — a onetime injection of new “value” into a system that had previously been characterized by global subsistence living. Before fossil fuels, nobody lived better than their parents or grandparents or ancestors from 500 years before, except in the immediate aftermath of a great plague like the Black Death, which allowed the lucky survivors to gobble up the resources liberated by mass graves. After we’ve burned all the fossil fuels, these scholars suggest, perhaps we will return to a “steady state” global economy. Of course, that onetime injection has a devastating long-term cost: climate change.

The most exciting research on the economics of warming has also come from Hsiang and his colleagues, who are not historians of fossil capitalism but who offer some very bleak analysis of their own: Every degree Celsius of warming costs, on average, 1.2 percent of GDP (an enormous number, considering we count growth in the low single digits as “strong”). This is the sterling work in the field, and their median projection is for a 23 percent loss in per capita earning globally by the end of this century (resulting from changes in agriculture, crime, storms, energy, mortality, and labor).
Tracing the shape of the probability curve is even scarier: There is a 12 percent chance that climate change will reduce global output by more than 50 percent by 2100, they say, and a 51 percent chance that it lowers per capita GDP by 20 percent or more by then, unless emissions decline. By comparison, the Great Recession lowered global GDP by about 6 percent, in a onetime shock; Hsiang and his colleagues estimate a one-in-eight chance of an ongoing and irreversible effect by the end of the century that is eight times worse.

The scale of that economic devastation is hard to comprehend, but you can start by imagining what the world would look like today with an economy half as big, which would produce only half as much value, generating only half as much to offer the workers of the world. It makes the grounding of flights out of heat-stricken Phoenix last month seem like pathetically small economic potatoes. And, among other things, it makes the idea of postponing government action on reducing emissions and relying solely on growth and technology to solve the problem an absurd business calculation.
Every round-trip ticket on flights from New York to London, keep in mind, costs the Arctic three more square meters of ice.

VIII. Poisoned Oceans
Sulfide burps off the skeleton coast.

That the sea will become a killer is a given. Barring a radical reduction of emissions, we will see at least four feet of sea-level rise and possibly ten by the end of the century. A third of the world’s major cities are on the coast, not to mention its power plants, ports, navy bases, farmlands, fisheries, river deltas, marshlands, and rice-paddy empires, and even those above ten feet will flood much more easily, and much more regularly, if the water gets that high. At least 600 million people live within ten meters of sea level today.

But the drowning of those homelands is just the start. At present, more than a third of the world’s carbon is sucked up by the oceans — thank God, or else we’d have that much more warming already. But the result is what’s called “ocean acidification,” which, on its own, may add a half a degree to warming this century. It is also already burning through the planet’s water basins — you may remember these as the place where life arose in the first place. You have probably heard of “coral bleaching” — that is, coral dying — which is very bad news, because reefs support as much as a quarter of all marine life and supply food for half a billion people. Ocean acidification will fry fish populations directly, too, though scientists aren’t yet sure how to predict the effects on the stuff we haul out of the ocean to eat; they do know that in acid waters, oysters and mussels will struggle to grow their shells, and that when the pH of human blood drops as much as the oceans’ pH has over the past generation, it induces seizures, comas, and sudden death.

That isn’t all that ocean acidification can do. Carbon absorption can initiate a feedback loop in which underoxygenated waters breed different kinds of microbes that turn the water still more “anoxic,” first in deep ocean “dead zones,” then gradually up toward the surface. There, the small fish die out, unable to breathe, which means oxygen-eating bacteria thrive, and the feedback loop doubles back. This process, in which dead zones grow like cancers, choking off marine life and wiping out fisheries, is already quite advanced in parts of the Gulf of Mexico and just off Namibia, where hydrogen sulfide is bubbling out of the sea along a thousand-mile stretch of land known as the “Skeleton Coast.” The name originally referred to the detritus of the whaling industry, but today it’s more apt than ever. Hydrogen sulfide is so toxic that evolution has trained us to recognize the tiniest, safest traces of it, which is why our noses are so exquisitely skilled at registering flatulence. Hydrogen sulfide is also the thing that finally did us in that time 97 percent of all life on Earth died, once all the feedback loops had been triggered and the circulating jet streams of a warmed ocean ground to a halt — it’s the planet’s preferred gas for a natural holocaust. Gradually, the ocean’s dead zones spread, killing off marine species that had dominated the oceans for hundreds of millions of years, and the gas the inert waters gave off into the atmosphere poisoned everything on land. Plants, too. It was millions of years before the oceans recovered.

IX. The Great Filter
Our present eeriness cannot last.

So why can’t we see it? In his recent book-length essay The Great Derangement, the Indian novelist Amitav Ghosh wonders why global warming and natural disaster haven’t become major subjects of contemporary fiction — why we don’t seem able to imagine climate catastrophe, and why we haven’t yet had a spate of novels in the genre he basically imagines into half-existence and names “the environmental uncanny.” “Consider, for example, the stories that congeal around questions like, ‘Where were you when the Berlin Wall fell?’ or ‘Where were you on 9/11?’ ” he writes. “Will it ever be possible to ask, in the same vein, ‘Where were you at 400 ppm?’ or ‘Where were you when the Larsen B ice shelf broke up?’ ” His answer: Probably not, because the dilemmas and dramas of climate change are simply incompatible with the kinds of stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, especially in novels, which tend to emphasize the journey of an individual conscience rather than the poisonous miasma of social fate.

Surely this blindness will not last — the world we are about to inhabit will not permit it. In a six-degree-warmer world, the Earth’s ecosystem will boil with so many natural disasters that we will just start calling them “weather”: a constant swarm of out-of-control typhoons and tornadoes and floods and droughts, the planet assaulted regularly with climate events that not so long ago destroyed whole civilizations. The strongest hurricanes will come more often, and we’ll have to invent new categories with which to describe them; tornadoes will grow longer and wider and strike much more frequently, and hail rocks will quadruple in size. Humans used to watch the weather to prophesy the future; going forward, we will see in its wrath the vengeance of the past. Early naturalists talked often about “deep time” — the perception they had, contemplating the grandeur of this valley or that rock basin, of the profound slowness of nature. What lies in store for us is more like what the Victorian anthropologists identified as “dreamtime,” or “everywhen”: the semi-mythical experience, described by Aboriginal Australians, of encountering, in the present moment, an out-of-time past, when ancestors, heroes, and demigods crowded an epic stage. You can find it already watching footage of an iceberg collapsing into the sea — a feeling of history happening all at once.

It is. Many people perceive climate change as a sort of moral and economic debt, accumulated since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and now come due after several centuries — a helpful perspective, in a way, since it is the carbon-burning processes that began in 18th-century England that lit the fuse of everything that followed. But more than half of the carbon humanity has exhaled into the atmosphere in its entire history has been emitted in just the past three decades; since the end of World War II, the figure is 85 percent. Which means that, in the length of a single generation, global warming has brought us to the brink of planetary catastrophe, and that the story of the industrial world’s kamikaze mission is also the story of a single lifetime. My father’s, for instance: born in 1938, among his first memories the news of Pearl Harbor and the mythic Air Force of the propaganda films that followed, films that doubled as advertisements for imperial-American industrial might; and among his last memories the coverage of the desperate signing of the Paris climate accords on cable news, ten weeks before he died of lung cancer last July. Or my mother’s: born in 1945, to German Jews fleeing the smokestacks through which their relatives were incinerated, now enjoying her 72nd year in an American commodity paradise, a paradise supported by the supply chains of an industrialized developing world. She has been smoking for 57 of those years, unfiltered.

Or the scientists’. Some of the men who first identified a changing climate (and given the generation, those who became famous were men) are still alive; a few are even still working. Wally Broecker is 84 years old and drives to work at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory across the Hudson every day from the Upper West Side. Like most of those who first raised the alarm, he believes that no amount of emissions reduction alone can meaningfully help avoid disaster. Instead, he puts his faith in carbon capture — untested technology to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which Broecker estimates will cost at least several trillion dollars — and various forms of “geoengineering,” the catchall name for a variety of moon-shot technologies far-fetched enough that many climate scientists prefer to regard them as dreams, or nightmares, from science fiction. He is especially focused on what’s called the aerosol approach — dispersing so much sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere that when it converts to sulfuric acid, it will cloud a fifth of the horizon and reflect back 2 percent of the sun’s rays, buying the planet at least a little wiggle room, heat-wise. “Of course, that would make our sunsets very red, would bleach the sky, would make more acid rain,” he says. “But you have to look at the magnitude of the problem. You got to watch that you don’t say the giant problem shouldn’t be solved because the solution causes some smaller problems.” He won’t be around to see that, he told me. “But in your lifetime …”

Jim Hansen is another member of this godfather generation. Born in 1941, he became a climatologist at the University of Iowa, developed the groundbreaking “Zero Model” for projecting climate change, and later became the head of climate research at NASA, only to leave under pressure when, while still a federal employee, he filed a lawsuit against the federal government charging inaction on warming (along the way he got arrested a few times for protesting, too). The lawsuit, which is brought by a collective called Our Children’s Trust and is often described as “kids versus climate change,” is built on an appeal to the equal-protection clause, namely, that in failing to take action on warming, the government is violating it by imposing massive costs on future generations; it is scheduled to be heard this winter in Oregon district court. Hansen has recently given up on solving the climate problem with a carbon tax alone, which had been his preferred approach, and has set about calculating the total cost of the additional measure of extracting carbon from the atmosphere.

Climate Scientist James Hansen: ‘The Planet Could Become Ungovernable’
The 10-Book ‘Uninhabitable Earth’ Reading List
Hansen began his career studying Venus, which was once a very Earth-like planet with plenty of life-supporting water before runaway climate change rapidly transformed it into an arid and uninhabitable sphere enveloped in an unbreathable gas; he switched to studying our planet by 30, wondering why he should be squinting across the solar system to explore rapid environmental change when he could see it all around him on the planet he was standing on. “When we wrote our first paper on this, in 1981,” he told me, “I remember saying to one of my co-authors, ‘This is going to be very interesting. Sometime during our careers, we’re going to see these things beginning to happen.’ ”

Several of the scientists I spoke with proposed global warming as the solution to Fermi’s famous paradox, which asks, If the universe is so big, then why haven’t we encountered any other intelligent life in it? The answer, they suggested, is that the natural life span of a civilization may be only several thousand years, and the life span of an industrial civilization perhaps only several hundred. In a universe that is many billions of years old, with star systems separated as much by time as by space, civilizations might emerge and develop and burn themselves up simply too fast to ever find one another. Peter Ward, a charismatic paleontologist among those responsible for discovering that the planet’s mass extinctions were caused by greenhouse gas, calls this the “Great Filter”: “Civilizations rise, but there’s an environmental filter that causes them to die off again and disappear fairly quickly,” he told me. “If you look at planet Earth, the filtering we’ve had in the past has been in these mass extinctions.” The mass extinction we are now living through has only just begun; so much more dying is coming.

And yet, improbably, Ward is an optimist. So are Broecker and Hansen and many of the other scientists I spoke to. We have not developed much of a religion of meaning around climate change that might comfort us, or give us purpose, in the face of possible annihilation. But climate scientists have a strange kind of faith: We will find a way to forestall radical warming, they say, because we must.

It is not easy to know how much to be reassured by that bleak certainty, and how much to wonder whether it is another form of delusion; for global warming to work as parable, of course, someone needs to survive to tell the story. The scientists know that to even meet the Paris goals, by 2050, carbon emissions from energy and industry, which are still rising, will have to fall by half each decade; emissions from land use (deforestation, cow farts, etc.) will have to zero out; and we will need to have invented technologies to extract, annually, twice as much carbon from the atmosphere as the entire planet’s plants now do. Nevertheless, by and large, the scientists have an enormous confidence in the ingenuity of humans — a confidence perhaps bolstered by their appreciation for climate change, which is, after all, a human invention, too. They point to the Apollo project, the hole in the ozone we patched in the 1980s, the passing of the fear of mutually assured destruction. Now we’ve found a way to engineer our own doomsday, and surely we will find a way to engineer our way out of it, one way or another. The planet is not used to being provoked like this, and climate systems designed to give feedback over centuries or millennia prevent us — even those who may be watching closely — from fully imagining the damage done already to the planet. But when we do truly see the world we’ve made, they say, we will also find a way to make it livable. For them, the alternative is simply unimaginable.

          This Crypto Scam Botnet Consists of Over 15,000 Separate Bots      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
This Crypto Scam Botnet Consists of Over 15,000 Separate Bots

Researchers at Duo Labs have discovered that Twitter is home to at least 15,000 scam bots and have published their findings in a new report.

Between May and July of 2018, staff members observed, collected and analyzed nearly 90 million public Twitter accounts that had released over 500 million tweets. In addition, researchers also examined elements of each account including profile screen names, number of followers, avatars and descriptions to gather one of the largest accumulations of Twitter data ever studied.

Among the report’s most interesting finds was a sophisticated “cryptocurrency scam botnet,” which consists of at least 15,000 separate bots. The botnet ultimately siphons money from individual users by posing as cryptocurrency exchanges, news organizations, verified accounts and even celebrities. Accounts in the botnet are programmed to deploy malicious behaviors to evade detection and look like real profiles.

Researchers were also able to map the botnet’s three-tiered structure, which consists of “hub” accounts that are followed by many bots, scam publishing bots, and amplification bots that specifically like tweets to increase their popularity and appear legitimate.

Olabode Anise, a data scientist and co-author of the report, explained, “Users are likely to trust a tweet depending on how many times it’s been retweeted or liked. Those behind this particular botnet know this and have designed it to exploit this very tendency.”

To discover the scam bots, researchers utilized subsets of varying machine-learning algorithms and built features that could train them to locate the bot accounts. Among the five considered algorithms were AdaBoost, Logistic Regression, Random Forest, Naive Bayes and Decision Trees. It was discovered that Random Forest outperformed the other algorithms during the initial testing phases. From there, three individual models of the algorithm were trained to deal with both social and crypto spam bots.

Researchers discovered that bot accounts follow certain behaviors, which, once identified, made them easier to recognize. For example, bot accounts often tweet in short bursts, causing the average times between messages to remain low, while actual Twitter users often wait longer periods between their tweets.

Some methods for evading discovery, however, are more sophisticated. Bots often use unicode characters in tweets rather than traditional ASCII characters. They also use screen names that are typos of spoofed accounts’ screen names, and add white spaces between words and punctuation marks. Profile pictures are also edited to prevent image detection. Finally, many bots appear to follow the same accounts.

Twitter has suspended cryptocurrency spam bots in the past and usually identifies fake accounts quickly. Nevertheless, executives appear to have missed several portions of the latest scam project.

A Twitter spokesperson claimed, “Spam and certain forms of automation are against Twitter’s rules. In many cases, spammy content is hidden on Twitter on the basis of automated detections. When spammy content is hidden on Twitter from areas like search and conversations, that may not affect its availability via the API. This means certain types of spam may be visible via Twitter’s API even if it is not visible on Twitter itself. Less than 5% of Twitter accounts are spam-related.”

          Appeals Court Tells DOJ To Drop The Glomar And Hand Over Records About Prosecutorial Misconduct To Requester      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A man convicted for fraud makes his second appearance in the Fourth Circuit Appeals Court. The first was an attempt to have his sentence vacated via complaints of prosecutorial misconduct. Gregory Bartko not only discovered a government witness had perjured himself, but during his trial, the prosecution routinely delayed its production of evidence -- something the district court noticed. It didn't result in a new trial, but it did bring judicial hellfire down on the heads of the prosecution team.

The Fourth Circuit's 2013 decision doesn't pull punches.

A cursory review of this Court’s opinions reveals recent consideration of at least three cases involving discovery abuse by government counsel in this district. [...] And this case, which confronts us with three alleged constitutional violations—two instances of withholding discoverable evidence and one choice to leave uncorrected a witness’s false testimony—only adds to the list.

[...]

Mistakes happen. Flawless trials are desirable but rarely attainable. Nevertheless, the frequency of the “flubs” committed by this office raises questions regarding whether the errors are fairly characterized as unintentional…

[Quoting an earlier case involving the same prosecutor's office] “This is a repeat offense by the government. The order is entered by the court requiring disclosure by a certain date, and the government simply ignores it. And their explanation for ignoring it is, ‘I missed it. So what. There’s no prejudice.’ And it just happens again and again.

Moreover, the government’s responses to queries regarding its practices are less than satisfactory. For example, in this case, when asked at oral argument about its failure to correct Scott Hollenbeck’s testimonial misstatement regarding promises he had received, the government suggested that at the time Hollenbeck made the misstatement, trial counsel had no recollection of the promises made to him. But as Judge Keenan aptly noted, such an idea “just strains credulity.” [...] And here, when we gave counsel an opportunity to correct her farfetched assertion, she refused. Faced with such behavior, we must conclude that this office is uninterested in placating concerns about its practices.

In this case, the multiple prosecutorial "errors" failed to undermine the case against Bartko, resulting in the government getting away with multiple due process violations. The court notes this is the government acting in bad faith and rolling the dice that the presented case will survive its misconduct.

Remedies elude defendants because discovery violations ultimately prove immaterial to the verdict. But that is not the true problem. The problem is that the government appears to be betting on the probability that reams of condemning evidence will shield defendants’ convictions on appeal such that at the trial stage, it can permissibly withhold discoverable materials and ignore false testimony.

The court noted the violations may have been "harmless" in the context of this specific case, but they are far from harmless in terms of due process. The appeals court asked the DOJ's Office of Professional Responsibility to investigate the US Attorney's office in North Carolina -- especially prosecutor Clay Wheeler's [ed: oh, the irony available at that link] -- repeated flouting of discovery rules and orders.

Five years later, Bartko is receiving his second opinion from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals -- this time pertaining to the DOJ's repeated refusal to hand over documents, specifically those related to the OPR's investigation of the prosecutor's office involved in his criminal case. The DOJ handed over a few documents listing Bartko as the "complainant," but for everything related to the court-requested investigation it gave him a Glomar.

The court is about as impressed with the OPR's arguments as it was with prosecutor Clay Wheeler and the US Attorney's Office during its last discussion with Bartko. From the opinion [PDF]:

Because Exemption 7(C) shields from disclosure “records or information compiled for law enforcement purposes” that “could reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy,” 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(7)(C), to invoke Glomar, OPR had to make a threshold showing that the FOIA request seeks records “compiled for law enforcement purposes.” OPR also bore the burden of making an across-the-board showing that the privacy interest the government asserts categorically outweighs any public interest.

[...]

In defense of its sweeping Glomar response, OPR offered only a bare-bones declaration that “[t]he records requested by [Bartko] from OPR consist of complaints or allegations of misconduct which, if they exist, would have been compiled as part of OPR’s investigations of Department of Justice attorneys who are alleged to have committed specific acts of professional misconduct which, if proved, could result in civil or criminal penalties.” J.A. 207. That is not even in the ballpark.

Not only that, but the OPR's own statements on its investigatory process made it clear most cases are closed quickly due to lack of evidence and those that survive are shopped out to other offices to handle reprimands, etc. As the court notes, this disconnects OPR from its firmly-held illusion that it possesses "law enforcement" info.

[The] description of OPR’s review process reveals just how attenuated its “law enforcement” function is. For starters, most matters do not even result in an investigation, making a finding of law-enforcement-triggering misconduct implausible in the vast majority of cases. That summary treatment seems to have been what was accorded to the Fourth Circuit’s referral in Wheeler’s case because there is no record evidence or attestations from OPR indicating that they interviewed witnesses or requested additional documents for review.

The OPR also claimed any release of investigation records would violate prosecutor Clay Wheeler's privacy. The court says there's a slim possibility that might be true, but the DOJ has provided no reason for it to believe these assertions.

Much like its vaporous justification for claiming that the requested documents constituted law-enforcement records, OPR just sweepingly asserted that the disclosure of any record regarding any allegation of misconduct would be an unwarranted invasion of Wheeler’s privacy. OPR ignores altogether its obligation to specifically identify the privacy interest at stake, which can vary based on many factors, including frequency, nature, and severity of the allegations.

Not only that, but there's more than Wheeler's privacy interest at stake. The public also has a right to know about government misconduct -- an interest the DOJ apparently believes doesn't exist.

OPR also made no apparent effort to weigh any privacy interest against the countervailing public interest in the disclosure of information concerning allegations of government attorneys’ misconduct. OPR cannot issue a blanket proclamation that a loss of privacy would be “unwarranted” without considering whether there is a public interest that might well warrant it.

This puts Bartko in line for some disclosure, roughly five years after he asked for it. Unfortunately, it appears from what little he has received, the prosecutor who engaged in misconduct was allowed to resign and avoid an OPR investigation. But what he will finally obtain should show how often that office engaged in behavior bad enough to warrant official court notice. And that's something of interest to everyone, not just the person whose case suffered directly from this abuse of due process.

          Some DNA Dismissed As 'Junk' Is Crucial To Embryo Development      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
One of the enduring mysteries of biology is why so much of the DNA in our chromosomes appears to be simply junk . In fact, about half of the human genome consists of repetitive bits of DNA that cut and paste themselves randomly into our chromosomes, with no obvious purpose. A study published Thursday finds that some of these snippets may actually play a vital role in the development of embryos. The noted biologist Barbara McClintock, who died in 1992, discovered these odd bits of DNA decades ago in corn, and dubbed them " jumping genes ." (She won a Nobel prize for that finding in 1983.) McClintock's discovery stimulated generations of scientists to seek to understand this bizarre phenomenon. Some biologists have considered these weird bits of DNA parasites, since they essentially hop around our chromosomes and infect them, sometimes disrupting genes and leaving illness in their wake. But Miguel Ramalho-Santos , a biologist at the University of California, San Francisco, doesn't like

          The Evolution of the Vth Order of the French or Modern Rite      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Recent years have been witness to a kind of rediscovery of the French or Modern Rite, which despite being a great unknown was the foundation of what would later evolve into various Masonic ritual "manifestations" both good and bad. Undoubtedly, the proliferation of the so-called High Degrees and heterodox systems, often lacking in coherence and sometimes contrary to the original aims of the Order, the intrusion of extravagant and visionary fashions, grotesque messianic systems, pseudomystical rituals and other varied fauna, led French continental masonry, and specifically the Grand Orient of France, to the creation of a "Grand General Chapter of France" in order to bring order and give uniform coherence to the chaos that was 18th Century Continental Freemasonry.

From time to time, history provides us with clear minds in various fields of art and knowledge. One of the transcendental figures to approach this structuring was Roëttiers de Montaleau, who along with Graffin, Salivet, Saurine, Millon and many other of those 81 founding members (note the number 81), gave form to the Orders of Wisdom, previously called Superior Orders, the intent of which was and continues to be that of coherently grouping the teachings, bringing together all the historical currents of the so-called Scottism, which I have developed extensively in other articles and essays.

Alexandre-Louis Roëttiers de Montaleau
The original founding idea of ​​1784 that simply intended the making of a V Order that contains "all the physical and metaphysical degrees and all systems, especially those adopted by the Masonic associations in force", remains a hard task to master. it came to be realized progressively and, curiously, was forgotten in some cases, or unknown in others, either by laziness, ignorance or egocentric overeagerness.

The French Rite of the Moderns that Roëttiers de Montaleau called in one of the reorganization proposals as the "Primitive Rite" affirming with this qualifying adjective the source of the French Rite, a name adopted to differentiate it from others created later and also implemented in France. I will leave for another occasion my modest analysis about the misuse that has been given to a supposed "Primitive Rite" in other parts of the world.

Now let's return to the true concept, that Primitive Rite, the French Rite or Rite of the Moderns, which compiled after the three symbolic degrees represents an authentic Academy and Conservatory of masonic degrees of the Enlightenment and the accumulated knowledge of multiple ritual systems.
This ambitious, but necessary regulation on the one hand academic and on the other administrative, is still alive today, and its genesis was intended to present a vision of the future as indicated by its first Statutes and General Regulations of March 19, 1784.
It is not simply a compilation or "Ark of the Covenant" of the first and historic 81 degrees distributed in 9 series, but meant to accommodate the greater masonic knowledge it contained, thus incorporating and conserving the culminating degrees of all the different systems and Rites.

That is the ultimate goal of the V Order: to reunite what is dispersed at the highest level of initiation. That's how it was and that's how it is today.

          Comment on Homeschooling First Grade: Our Curriculum and Plans for the Year by Tanya      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I love the sound of your co-op and I can't wait to hear how the curriculum works! I'm not even considering science and history (just nature study) for this year, but I'd love to start something next year. I am starting to understand the saying "no" to morning activities. I think this might be a rule we will have to adopt as well. It will be easy to push off school and play with friends or spend time at the library or Discovery Place since I still have the baby and preschooler at home. But I am going to have to adjust some to make sure we are sticking to a routine and creating habits at home. It's hard to say no when fun things come up but I love that you created a hard and fast rule because then you won't have to decide for each and every case. You'll have an easy answer. I just got Jot It Down and have been reading through it to see how we will incorporate it into this year. I'm interested but still hesitant. I'm happy to hear how you are able to incorporate it without feeling overwhelmed by it.

          Transcript of remarks by CE at media session       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, at a media session before the Nam Pak Hong Association 150th anniversary ceremony this evening (August 8):
 
Reporter: Why do you insist that Fred Ma should stay, because a company certainly can do without one man and shouldn't he also be responsible? And secondly, why should Transport Secretary Frank Chan stay too? Should he be accountable for this whole incident surrounding the Shatin to Central Link?
 
Chief Executive: Well, I understand that in some quarters, whenever an issue like this happens, people want all the heads to roll, but we have to be reasonable and take the appropriate actions. I have explained at length that when we talk about responsibility and accountability, there are different levels of responsibility and accountability.
 
     In this particular incident, the director or the project director and the works team have the most important responsibility that they have to shoulder, and that's why we are very decisive in taking actions on that front. But as far as the senior management is concerned, because there is division of labour within a company,  the senior management perhaps could have done better in terms of monitoring, especially after the incident has hit the news. They have been given a period of time to produce and submit report to the Hong Kong SAR Government, the senior management should have exercised an even higher level of diligence and vigilance to ensure the accuracy of the report. So Mr Lincoln Leong has also taken responsibility for that.
 
     Then finally is the Chairman and the Board of the MTR Corporation. I have a look at the facts and asked my government directors on the MTR Board. They have been kept in the dark. They have performed their role in asking a lot of questions from the management, especially the project team, but they have been kept in the dark. My consideration is based on this sort of analysis of responsibility and accountability. But practically, the MTR Corporation is a very sizeable company. It has several business areas. One is of course the projects, the railway projects. The other is operating railway every day, transporting 5 million of passengers on a daily basis, and they have the property side as well. For such a big company to have all these senior people leaving at the same time would not be a very sensible proposition. So despite Mr Fred Ma himself wanting to take accountability for this matter and step down, I have invited him and persuaded him to stay for a while in order to help us to undertake the various functions.
 
     As far as the Secretary for Transport and Housing, the considerations are very much the same. He is also a member of the Board, and I think the government directors have also exercised their diligence in scrutinising the work of the project team and asking questions. In terms of a monitoring role, of course the Highways Department is assisting the Secretary for Transport and Housing in monitoring and the discovery this time that we could come out to tell the public about is part and parcel of that effective monitoring.

          “Stolen” by Rythmatik – A Song Feature      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     Iceland continues to be a source of accomplished musicians. In view of the country’s population, the flow rate of quality music defies logic. The most recent discovery is Rythmatik. The band’s single “Stolen” is lyrically and melodically powerful. Our flawed understanding of the lyrics is included in this post (you’re invited to post corrections in the “comments” section). The lyrics are sometimes clever (“You’ll only speak from your heart, or your behind”) and sometimes insightful and provocative:
I’m glad to say
The only prejudice
I hold in my heart
Is for people
With more money than thought

     Other than the chorus, “Stolen” is more spoken word than sung. But the cadence and inflections embrace the message. Perhaps the best example is in the line “Unless the lab coat says it’s needed,” when a slightly deranged speech approach provides insight into the role of the person wearing “the lab coat.”

      “Stolen” begins with a quick-twitch guitar hook that is melodically simple, but demanding to perform. The percussion soon joins with a force. The members of Rythmatik are Hrafnkell Hugi Vernharðsson (guitar, vocals), Pétur Óli Þorvaldsson (bass), Valgeir Skorri Vernharðsson (drums), and Árni Freyr (guitar). The band is currently based in Reykjavik, Iceland. Fitting for an Icelandic band, they are signed with Ice Will Melt Records (of Germany)

      Paraphrasing content about Rythmatik:
  Rythmatik is an Indie Rock band known for tits tight and powerful live performances. The band became a househould name in Iceland after winning the National Icelandic Battle of the Bands in 2015. Since then, Rythmatik has come a long way. After spending two years constantly writing, rehearsing and performing their patented powerful and energetic live show to sold out audiences around the Reykjavík area, the band finally decided to buckle down and begin working on their debut album – “Grin & Panic.”

Lyrics of “Stolen” by Rythmatik (sorry, rife with errors from best guesses)
I’m glad to say
The only prejudice
I hold in my heart
Is for people
With more money than thought

But honestly
It’s just jealousy
I’m way to way
Not to let the good life
Get the best of me

A stick up the ass
Ain’t a proper substitute for a spine
By the way you’re off kilter
And you’re causing splinters

People with broken hearts
With their liver on their sleeve
Their heart
A featherweight contender
But not by itself will remember

Well, you seem to remember yourself
Taller than this
Standing on the shoulders of
Treading for boulders

You should
Pick your words
Be kind
You’ll only speak from your heart
Or your behind

In a way you got this
Coming back, yah
Feeling the heat, boy
It’s clearer than that
It’s a shift shaker
A heart spot breaker
Scratching that itch
Like you got on your back
[Repeat]

I’m glad to say
The only prejudice
I hold in my heart
Is for people
With more money than thought

But honestly
It’s just jealousy
I’m way to way
Not to let the good life
Get the best of me

Well, I walk or run the risk
To choke on the medicine
Unless the lab coat says it’s needed
If it’s the other guy
I think I’m trying to feel it
Cause at this point
I think it could be excessive
Let’s just hope if you will follow point
The lousy death trap

In a way you got this
Coming back, yah
Feeling the heat, boy
It’s clearer than that
It’s a shift shaker
A heart spot breaker
Scratching that itch
Like you got on your back
[Repeat]

          Appeals Court Tells DOJ To Drop The Glomar And Hand Over Records About Prosecutorial Misconduct To Requester      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A man convicted for fraud makes his second appearance in the Fourth Circuit Appeals Court. The first was an attempt to have his sentence vacated via complaints of prosecutorial misconduct. Gregory Bartko not only discovered a government witness had perjured himself, but during his trial, the prosecution routinely delayed its production of evidence -- something the district court noticed. It didn't result in a new trial, but it did bring judicial hellfire down on the heads of the prosecution team.

The Fourth Circuit's 2013 decision doesn't pull punches.

A cursory review of this Court’s opinions reveals recent consideration of at least three cases involving discovery abuse by government counsel in this district. [...] And this case, which confronts us with three alleged constitutional violations—two instances of withholding discoverable evidence and one choice to leave uncorrected a witness’s false testimony—only adds to the list.

[...]

Mistakes happen. Flawless trials are desirable but rarely attainable. Nevertheless, the frequency of the “flubs” committed by this office raises questions regarding whether the errors are fairly characterized as unintentional…

[Quoting an earlier case involving the same prosecutor's office] “This is a repeat offense by the government. The order is entered by the court requiring disclosure by a certain date, and the government simply ignores it. And their explanation for ignoring it is, ‘I missed it. So what. There’s no prejudice.’ And it just happens again and again.

Moreover, the government’s responses to queries regarding its practices are less than satisfactory. For example, in this case, when asked at oral argument about its failure to correct Scott Hollenbeck’s testimonial misstatement regarding promises he had received, the government suggested that at the time Hollenbeck made the misstatement, trial counsel had no recollection of the promises made to him. But as Judge Keenan aptly noted, such an idea “just strains credulity.” [...] And here, when we gave counsel an opportunity to correct her farfetched assertion, she refused. Faced with such behavior, we must conclude that this office is uninterested in placating concerns about its practices.

In this case, the multiple prosecutorial "errors" failed to undermine the case against Bartko, resulting in the government getting away with multiple due process violations. The court notes this is the government acting in bad faith and rolling the dice that the presented case will survive its misconduct.

Remedies elude defendants because discovery violations ultimately prove immaterial to the verdict. But that is not the true problem. The problem is that the government appears to be betting on the probability that reams of condemning evidence will shield defendants’ convictions on appeal such that at the trial stage, it can permissibly withhold discoverable materials and ignore false testimony.

The court noted the violations may have been "harmless" in the context of this specific case, but they are far from harmless in terms of due process. The appeals court asked the DOJ's Office of Professional Responsibility to investigate the US Attorney's office in North Carolina -- especially prosecutor Clay Wheeler's [ed: oh, the irony available at that link] -- repeated flouting of discovery rules and orders.

Five years later, Bartko is receiving his second opinion from the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals -- this time pertaining to the DOJ's repeated refusal to hand over documents, specifically those related to the OPR's investigation of the prosecutor's office involved in his criminal case. The DOJ handed over a few documents listing Bartko as the "complainant," but for everything related to the court-requested investigation it gave him a Glomar.

The court is about as impressed with the OPR's arguments as it was with prosecutor Clay Wheeler and the US Attorney's Office during its last discussion with Bartko. From the opinion [PDF]:

Because Exemption 7(C) shields from disclosure “records or information compiled for law enforcement purposes” that “could reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy,” 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(7)(C), to invoke Glomar, OPR had to make a threshold showing that the FOIA request seeks records “compiled for law enforcement purposes.” OPR also bore the burden of making an across-the-board showing that the privacy interest the government asserts categorically outweighs any public interest.

[...]

In defense of its sweeping Glomar response, OPR offered only a bare-bones declaration that “[t]he records requested by [Bartko] from OPR consist of complaints or allegations of misconduct which, if they exist, would have been compiled as part of OPR’s investigations of Department of Justice attorneys who are alleged to have committed specific acts of professional misconduct which, if proved, could result in civil or criminal penalties.” J.A. 207. That is not even in the ballpark.

Not only that, but the OPR's own statements on its investigatory process made it clear most cases are closed quickly due to lack of evidence and those that survive are shopped out to other offices to handle reprimands, etc. As the court notes, this disconnects OPR from its firmly-held illusion that it possesses "law enforcement" info.

[The] description of OPR’s review process reveals just how attenuated its “law enforcement” function is. For starters, most matters do not even result in an investigation, making a finding of law-enforcement-triggering misconduct implausible in the vast majority of cases. That summary treatment seems to have been what was accorded to the Fourth Circuit’s referral in Wheeler’s case because there is no record evidence or attestations from OPR indicating that they interviewed witnesses or requested additional documents for review.

The OPR also claimed any release of investigation records would violate prosecutor Clay Wheeler's privacy. The court says there's a slim possibility that might be true, but the DOJ has provided no reason for it to believe these assertions.

Much like its vaporous justification for claiming that the requested documents constituted law-enforcement records, OPR just sweepingly asserted that the disclosure of any record regarding any allegation of misconduct would be an unwarranted invasion of Wheeler’s privacy. OPR ignores altogether its obligation to specifically identify the privacy interest at stake, which can vary based on many factors, including frequency, nature, and severity of the allegations.

Not only that, but there's more than Wheeler's privacy interest at stake. The public also has a right to know about government misconduct -- an interest the DOJ apparently believes doesn't exist.

OPR also made no apparent effort to weigh any privacy interest against the countervailing public interest in the disclosure of information concerning allegations of government attorneys’ misconduct. OPR cannot issue a blanket proclamation that a loss of privacy would be “unwarranted” without considering whether there is a public interest that might well warrant it.

This puts Bartko in line for some disclosure, roughly five years after he asked for it. Unfortunately, it appears from what little he has received, the prosecutor who engaged in misconduct was allowed to resign and avoid an OPR investigation. But what he will finally obtain should show how often that office engaged in behavior bad enough to warrant official court notice. And that's something of interest to everyone, not just the person whose case suffered directly from this abuse of due process.

          Moving to Confluence Data Center      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Page edited by Michelle Mortimer - "Published by Scroll Versions from space DOCM and version 6.10"

This page outlines the process for migrating an existing Confluence Server (non-clustered) site to Confluence Data Center (clustered).

If you're installing Confluence for the first time (you don't have any existing Confluence data to migrate), see Installing Confluence Data Center

If you're wanting to switch back to a non-clustered solution, see Moving from Data Center to Server.

Your Confluence license determines the type of Confluence you have: Server or Data Center. Confluence will auto-detect the license type when you enter your license key, and automatically prompt you to begin the migration.

Before you begin

Clustering requirements

To run Confluence in a cluster you must:

  • Have a Data Center license (you can purchase a Data Center license or create an evaluation license at my.atlassian.com)
  • Use a supported external database, operating system and Java version
  • Use a load balancer with session affinity and WebSockets support in front of the Confluence cluster
  • Have a shared directory accessible to all cluster nodes in the same path (this will be your shared home directory)
  • Use OAuth authentication if you have application links to other Atlassian products (such as Jira)

Supported platforms

See our Supported Platforms page for information on the database, Java, and operating systems you'll be able to use. These requirements are the same for Server and Data Center deployments. See Confluence Data Center Technical Overview for important hardware and infrastructure considerations.

We also have specific guides and deployment templates to help you running Confluence Data Center in AWS or Azure. Check them out to find out what's required.

Terminology

In this guide we'll use the following terminology:

  • Installation directory – The directory where you installed Confluence on a node.
  • Local home directory – The home or data directory on each node (in non-clustered Confluence this is simply known as the home directory).
  • Shared home directory – The directory you created that is accessible to all nodes in the cluster via the same path. 
  • Synchrony home directory - The directory where you configure and run Synchrony from (this may be on a confluence node, or on its own node)

At the end of the installation process, you'll have an installation and local home directory on each node, and a single shared home directory (a total of 5 directories in a two node cluster) for Confluence plus directories for Synchrony. 

Set up Data Center

1. Upgrade Confluence Server 

If you plan to upgrade Confluence as part of your migration to Data Center, you should upgrade your existing Confluence Server site as the first step.  

2. Apply Data Center license 

  1. Go to  > General Configuration > License Details
  2. Enter your new Confluence Data Center license key.
  3. You'll be prompted to stop Confluence to begin the migration.

 

At this stage your home directory (configured in confluence\WEB-INF\classes\confluence-init.properties) should still be pointing to your existing (local) home directory.

3. Create a shared home directory 

  1. Create a directory that's accessible to all cluster nodes via the same path. The directory should be empty. This will be your shared home directory. 
  2. In your existing Confluence home directory, move the contents of <confluence home>/shared-home to the new shared home directory you just created.

    To prevent confusion, we recommend deleting the empty <confluence home>/shared-home directory once you've moved its contents.
  3. Move your attachments directory to the new shared home directory (skip this step if you currently store attachments in the database). 

4. Start Confluence

The setup wizard will prompt you to complete the migration, by entering:

  • A name for your cluster
  • The path to the shared home directory you created earlier
  • The network interface Confluence will use to communicate between nodes
  • A multicast address (automatically generated or enter your own) or the IP addresses of each cluster node
  • How you want Confluence to discover cluster nodes:

    • Multicast - enter your own multicast address or automatically generate one.
    • TCP/IP - enter the IP address of each cluster node
    • AWS - enter your IAM Role or secret key, and region.
       

      AWS node discovery...

      We recommend using our Quick Start or Cloud Formation Template to deploy Confluence Data Center in AWS, as it will automatically provision, configure and connect everything you need.

      If you do decide to do your own custom deployment, you can provide the following information to allow Confluence to auto-discover cluster nodes:

      FieldDescription
      IAM Role or
      Secret Key
      This is your authentication method. You can choose to authenticate by IAM Role or Secret Key.
      RegionThis is the region your cluster nodes (EC2 instances) will be running in.
      Host headerOptional. This is the AWS endpoint for Confluence to use (the address where the EC2 API can be found, for example 'ec2.amazonaws.com'). Leave blank to use the default endpoint.
      Security group nameOptional. Use to narrow the members of your cluster to only resources in a particular security group (specified in the EC2 console).
      Tag key and Tag value

      Optional. Use to narrow the members of your cluster to only resources with particular tags (specified in the EC2 console).

Once you've confirmed that Confluence is running, stop Confluence so you can set up Synchrony (required if you want to continue to use collaborative editing).  

Set up Synchrony

5. Set up a Synchrony cluster

In this example, we assume you'll run Synchrony in its own cluster.
 

  1. Grab the <install-directory>/bin/synchrony directory from your first Confluence node and move it to your Synchrony node.  We'll call this your <synchrony-home> directory.
  2. Copy synchrony-standalone.jar from your Confluence local home directory to your <synchrony-home> directory. 
  3. Copy your database driver from your Confluence <install-directory>/confluence/web-inf/lib to your <synchrony-home> directory or other appropriate location on your Synchrony node.
  4. Edit the <synchrony-home>/start-synchrony.sh or start-synchrony.bat file and enter details for the parameters listed under Configure parameters.
    See Configuring Synchrony for Data Center for more information on the required parameters and some and optional properties that you can also choose to specify.
  5. Start Confluence then head to 
    http://<SERVER_IP>:<SYNCHRONY_PORT>/synchrony/heartbeat
    to check that Synchrony is available
  6. Copy your <synchrony-home> directory to each Synchrony node. As each node joins you'll see something like this in your console.

    Members [2] {
    	Member [172.22.52.12]:5701
    	Member [172.22.49.34]:5701 
    }
    
  7. Configure your load balancer for Synchrony.
    Your load balancer must support WebSockets (for example NGINX 1.3 or later, Apache httpd 2.4, IIS 8.0 or later). SSL connections must be terminated at your load balancer so that Synchrony can accept XHR requests from the web browser. 

6. Start Confluence on Node 1

In this example, we assume you use the same load balancer for Synchrony and Confluence, as shown in Configuring Synchrony for Data Center.

  1. Start Confluence on node 1 and pass the following system property to Confluence to tell Confluence where to find your Synchrony cluster.

    -Dsynchrony.service.url=http://<synchrony load balancer url>/synchrony/v1

    For example http://yoursite.example.com/synchrony/v1. You must include /v1 on the end of the URL.

    If Synchrony is set up as one node without a load balancer, use the following instead:

    -Dsynchrony.service.url=http://<synchrony ip or hostname>:<synchrony port>/synchrony/v1

    For example http://42.42.42.42:8091/synchrony/v1 or http://synchrony.example.com:8091/synchrony/v1

    You may want to add this system property to your <install-directory>/bin/setenv.sh or setenv.bat so it is automatically passed every time you start Confluence. See Configuring System Properties for more information on how to do this in your environment.

  2. Head to  > General Configuration > Collaborative editing to check that this Confluence node can connect to Synchrony. 

    Note: to test creating content you'll need to access Confluence via your load balancer.  You can't create or edit pages when accessing a node directly.

Add more Confluence nodes

7. Copy Confluence to second node

To copy Confluence to the second node:

  1. Shut down Confluence on node 1
  2. Shut down your application server on node 2, or stop it automatically loading web applications
  3. Copy the installation directory from node 1 to node 2
  4. Copy the local home directory from node 1 to node 2
    If the file path of the local home directory is not the same on nodes 1 and 2 you'll need to update the <installation directory>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/confluence-init.properties file on node 2 to point to the correct location.

Copying the local home directory ensures the Confluence search index, the database and cluster configuration, and any other settings are copied to node 2.

8. Configure load balancer

Configure your load balancer for Confluence. You can use the load balancer of your choice, but it needs to support session affinity and WebSockets.

SSL connections must be terminated at your load balancer so that Synchrony can accept XHR requests from the web browser.

You can verify that your load balancer is sending requests correctly to your existing Confluence server by accessing Confluence through the load balancer and creating a page, then checking that this page can be viewed/edited by another machine through the load balancer.

9. Start Confluence one node at a time

You must only start Confluence one node at a time. The first node must be up and available before starting the next one.

  1. Start Confluence on node 1
  2. Wait for Confluence to become available on node 1
  3. Start Confluence on node 2
  4. Wait for Confluence to become available on node 2.

The Cluster monitoring console ( > General Configuration > Clustering) shows information about the active cluster.

When the cluster is running properly, this page displays the details of each node, including system usage and uptime. Use the menu to see more information about each node in the cluster.

10. Test your Confluence cluster

Remember, to test creating content you'll need to access Confluence via your load balancer.  You can't create or edit pages when accessing a node directly.

A simple process to ensure your cluster is working correctly is:

  1. Access a node via your load balancer, and create a new document on this node
  2. Ensure the new document is visible by accessing it directly on a different node
  3. Search for the new document on the original node, and ensure it appears
  4. Search for the new document on another node, and ensure it appears

If Confluence detects more than one instance accessing the database, but not in a working cluster, it will shut itself down in a cluster panic. This can be fixed by troubleshooting the network connectivity of the cluster.


Security

Ensure that only permitted cluster nodes are allowed to connect to a Confluence Data Center instance's Hazelcast port (which defaults to 5801) or Synchrony's Hazelcast port (which defaults to 5701) through the use of a firewall and / or network segregation.

Troubleshooting

If you have problems with the above procedure, please see our Cluster Troubleshooting guide.

If you're testing Confluence Data Center by running the cluster on a single machine, please refer to our developer instructions on Starting a Confluence cluster on a single machine.

Right here: http://comicbook.com/startrek/2018/08/07/star-trek-discovery-season-2-klingon-redesign/ It sounds like they are going to just change the DIS Klingons or add in the other looking Klingons in the past. I'm fine with either one as long as they get back to the traditional looking Klingons. I don't think most fans warmed up to the new ones and sounded it was a Fuller decision. But now that he and the other show runners are gone, it sounds like they are trying to correct the mistakes.

I never said all prequels suck. I liked Rogue One too btw, but it was a one off thing. If they made it into a show I would probably feel differently about it. I didn't hate Solo, it was a lot of fun but it felt very unnecessary so I understand why it bombed. Problem with Star Trek is there has been too many prequels and why there is so much excitement over the Picard show. After Enterprise, Kelvin movies and Discovery people are excited to go forward again. But I'm pretty sure there are still going to be more prequels, just nice that they can do both, which all most people want.

I figured once ME released their spoilers it would sell out before I could get it. I use bubble bath for a body wash or I might give it to my mom.

          What you need to know about Keith Block, the ex-Oracle exec that Wall Street says got a 'well-deserved' promotion to co-CEO of Salesforce (CRM, ORCL)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Salesforce Keith Block

  • From a managers meeting in Hawaii Tuesday evening, Salesforce announced the promotion of Chief Operating Officer Keith Block to co-CEO, alongside founder and CEO Marc Benioff.
  • Block, who joined the company in 2013, will continue to focus on operations and strategy while Benioff focuses on "vision and innovation."
  • But before joining Salesforce, Block had a lengthy and storied career at Oracle. 
  • Read on for more of what you need to know about Salesforce's new co-CEO.

Salesforce cofounder Marc Benioff has led the company as CEO since its founding in 1999. But now, the $106 billion software company has a new leader to help achieve its goal of $23 billion in annual revenues by 2022. 

President and Chief Operating Officer Keith Block was promoted to co-CEO. He'll continue to focus on Salesforce's strategic growth and operations, while Benioff executes on what the company describes as "vision and innovation."

Salesforce first announced Block's promotion late Tuesday from management meeting in Hawaii, a state whose native culture is imbued through out the customer relationship software company's ethos. 

While the title is new, Block has managed the day-to-day operations at Salesforce since his promotion to COO in 2016. For the last two years, it's been Block's job to grow the company's global sales and marketing units, even as he's tasked with keeping the company's 32,000 employees moving in the same direction. He has been president, vice chairman and director of the company since 2013.

In addition to the title change, Block will get a raise. His base salary will increase from $1.15 million to $1.435 million, according to a company filing. His annual target bonus will also increase from 100% to 200% of his base salary, which means if he does a good job, Block will take home $4.305 million next year. And that's not including the equity in the company he already owns.

Wall Street applauded the move, with analysts calling it "well deserved" and a "positive development for shareholders," as well as a good sign for Salesforce's upcoming Q2 2019 earnings.

Here's everything else you need to know about San Francisco's newest CEO. 

Benioff and Block both have a history at Oracle 

Marc BenioffThe story of Salesforce is deeply linked to Oracle, its longtime rival and inspiration for the "No Software" mentality that fueled Salesforce's rise as a cloud platform. In fact, Benioff and Block met each other back in the '80s, when the pair both worked for Oracle.

"This announcement really reflects how Salesforce is run today, which is that Keith and I over the last five years have developed a very strong partnership,” Benioff told Fortune. “Of course, we knew each other for quite a bit before that — we both started at Oracle in 1986 — so we have known each other forever. And we’ve really grown to be great partners. We wanted to cement that, so we’ve exchanged our vows and now we’re co-CEOs.”

Benioff himself joined Oracle out of college, and by age 26 he was a vice president with a $300,000 salary to boot. Oracle founder Larry Ellison was a mentor to Benioff, so much so that they reportedly spent Thanksgiving together and double-dated. But in 1999, after 13 years at Oracle, Benioff left to start Salesforce.

Block lasted twice as long the storied database giant. When he joined Salesforce in 2013, he had spent 26 years rising up the ranks at Oracle. By the time he left, he had been Oracle's executive vice president of North America for nearly a decade, making him a key player at the company. 

Oracle, which has a market cap of $190 billion, sells databases and the licenses software that helps companies manage their data. But it's best known for the efficacy and performance of its sales teams. 

It's that all-star sales mentality that Block brought to Salesforce. Analysts credit Block with Salesforce's move from serving primarily small customers, to winning business with the largest of enterprises. The company continues to sign big deals at a record pace, and now has roughly 150,000 customers that are under contracts worth at least $13.3 billion.

It's also noteworthy that while not many company's have multiple CEO's, Oracle similarly splits the CEO position between two executives with different strengths: the strategy-focused Mark Hurd and the financially-rooted Safra Catz. 

He famously left Oracle after criticizing Mark Hurd

Despite his long tenure, Block actually left Oracle in 2012 under something of a dark cloud after the publicizing of some unflattering instant message conversations, in which he criticized Hurd, then the second in command at Oracle.

In the instant messages, which came out in the discovery process of a legal battle between Oracle and Hewlett-Packard, Block shared his strong disapproval of Oracle's acquisition of Sun Microsystems, saying "We bought a dog. Mark wants us to sell the dog. ... Nobody wants to sell Sun. ... It baaaallllloooooooows."

It wasn't long after that Hurd left Oracle.

Block has deep roots in Boston

Keith Block

While Salesforce is the biggest tech company with headquarters in San Francisco, Block maintains deep roots on the east coast.

The Carnegie Mellon alumnus and self-declared Boston sports fan is officially based in San Francisco. But in the past, he could be found hanging around the Boston office, and he's credited with building Salesforce's presence in the region.

“Ultimately, we’d like this to be one of the biggest offices that we have in the country, and one of Boston’s biggest employers," Block told the Boston Globe in May 2017. 

As of August 2017, the company had around 1,000 employees in Boston, including the team formerly known as Demandware, which Salesforce acquired in 2016 for $2.8 billion and turned into its Commerce Cloud.

Block's wife Suzanne Kelley is also a longtime resident of Boston, where she is a vice president at Oracle, leading operations and project management for the global business unit. 

In February, the couple donated $15 million to establish the Block Center for Technology and Society, a research and policy institute at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Block is also involved in philanthropy with the Boston public school system through the non-profit Boston Partners in Education.

Fósseis que mudam tudo o que sabemos sobre a evolução humana (... ou não)

https://evolution-outreach.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1007/s12052-010-0267-4#Conclusions

Evolution: Education and Outreach20103:267
©  Springer Science + Business Media, LLC 2010
  • Published: 19 August 2010

Abstract

Manchetes dramáticas divulgando novas descobertas de fósseis freqüentemente proclamam que nossa visão da evolução humana foi revolucionada. 

Embora esse seja ocasionalmente o caso, é mais frequente que novos fósseis enriquecem nossa compreensão de nossa própria ancestralidade ou respondam a questões científicas que não poderiam ser resolvidas com dados anteriores. 

Mesmo novas descobertas espetaculares, como o agora famoso esqueleto de "hobbit" (Homo floresiensis), geralmente podem ser incluídas na árvore genealógica humana sem qualquer mudança significativa nas inferências sobre as relações filogenéticas ou o status taxonômico do resto de seus membros. 

É uma prova do poder da teoria evolucionista e do cuidadoso estudo comparativo de fósseis humanos e outros que o que sabemos sobre evolução humana muda tão pouco, mesmo quando novas descobertas espetaculares são anunciadas.

 “Fossil upends theories about evolution of human ancestors”
“Fossil finds challenge view of man’s place in evolution”
“African fossils hailed as the ‘Rosetta Stone of humanity’”
“Scientists announce the discovery of a 47-million-year-old primate fossil that is set to revolutionize our understanding of human evolution”

Esta amostragem de manchetes recentes dá a impressão de que o estudo da evolução humana é tão incerto que a descoberta de novos fósseis lança o campo inteiro no caos. Porque somos todos curiosos sobre nossas próprias origens, seja pessoal ou coletivo, o tema da evolução humana provavelmente atrai mais atenção popular do que qualquer outra área da ciência. 

Novas descobertas fósseis relacionadas de alguma forma com a evolução humana recebem mais cobertura da mídia e estão mais sujeitas a excitação do que qualquer outro tópico evolutivo. Essa situação surge do amplo interesse público e, portanto, da mídia, juntamente com um grau normal de autopromoção acadêmica e institucional. É bom que essas descobertas recebam atenção, mas o entusiasmo é inútil.

Em particular, tais manchetes reforçam um dos mal-entendidos mais comuns da evolução humana: 

Que quase todo fóssil novo e significativo leva a pelo menos uma revisão importante - se não uma revolução total - em tudo o que era anteriormente conhecido no campo. (Parte da razão pode ser o equívoco comum de que paleoantropólogos estão em busca do “elo perdido” - uma forma de transição que asseguraria, de uma vez por todas, o caso de nossa ancestralidade comum com os demais primatas e sem Para uma discussão desse equívoco, ver Mead 2009.) 

De fato, no entanto, o registro evolutivo humano é agora bem compreendido em linhas gerais de que a maioria das novas descobertas se encaixa confortavelmente em sua estrutura geral. Novas descobertas podem fornecer novos dados interessantes e ampliar um pouco o conhecimento, mas nesse ponto eles raramente são revolucionários.

O registro fóssil humano

A história da descoberta do registro fóssil humano começa no início do século XIX. Novos achados foram inicialmente muito dispersos e esporádicos, principalmente acréscimos acidentais que eram pouco datados em termos absolutos e geralmente com pouco ou nenhum contexto (Lewin 1997)

No início da história da paleontologia humana, era difícil saber o que fazer com esses espécimes. Afinal, a extinção e a ideia de que os humanos modernos tinham ancestrais biológicos de uma anatomia decididamente diferente ainda eram conceitos muito novos. Além disso, muitos dos achados em vários locais da Europa eram restos do Homo sapiens anatomicamente moderno, que diferiam muito pouco das pessoas que os descobriram (Lewin, 1997).

A situação começou a mudar em 1856, com a descoberta do esqueleto parcial do Vale de Neander. 

Os neandertais eram diferentes - diferentes dos espécimes anteriores e diferentes das pessoas que os encontraram. Que eles eram seres humanos fósseis não foi amplamente aceito (mesmo entre os cientistas) até o estudo de Marcelino Boule sobre os restos mortais de La Chapelle-aux-Saints na França (Boule, 1911). Há uma excelente revisão da história da paleontologia de Neanderthal em Trinkaus e Shipman (1992).


A busca deliberada de novos fósseis humanos e a cuidadosa e sistemática recuperação e análise de descobertas eram quase desconhecidas antes de 1900. Durante a primeira parte do século XX, seguindo o desenvolvimento dos campos profissionais da antropologia e da paleontologia, mais e melhores achados fósseis a evolução humana tornou-se parte da ciência padrão do dia. No entanto, ainda havia apenas alguns especialistas em tempo integral na evolução humana, que estavam investigando apenas um punhado de importantes sítios de fósseis espalhados pelo mundo. Portanto, durante a primeira metade do século XX, não era incomum que a descoberta de novos fósseis quebrasse um terreno inteiramente novo, por assim dizer (por exemplo, Dart 1925; Black 1927; Weidenreich 1937; Broom 1938).

Com o crescimento da academia e do financiamento para a ciência após a Segunda Guerra Mundial, as descobertas começaram a aumentar mais rapidamente. 

Desde meados do século XX, nosso conhecimento do registro fóssil humano melhorou em quantidade e qualidade em um grau notável. 

Novas linhagens, novas espécies e espécimes mais completos e melhor preservados, com melhor coleta de dados contextuais da geologia e paleontologia, tornaram-se partes padrão e esperadas de um campo que agora tem muitos especialistas que estão investigando muitos locais (Lewin, 1997).

O que mais sabemos

Neste ponto, o registro da evolução humana ainda está em expansão - tanto com a descoberta de mais fósseis quanto com melhores técnicas de estudo e reconstrução de materiais fósseis. 

No entanto, a apresentação na mídia popular de novos espécimes fósseis ou nova análise de fósseis humanos às vezes obscurece o quanto e com que firmeza sabemos sobre nossos parentes e ancestrais fósseis. Considere, por exemplo, o resumo de fatos salientes sobre a evolução humana na Tabela 1.


Tabela 1.Summary of salient facts about human evolution
Fato
Conhecido desde
Baseado em
Os seres humanos existiam no passado geológico, muito antes dos registros históricos mais antigos
before 1860
Sítios arqueológicos e artefatos associados a espécies animais extintas e antigos depósitos geológicos
Existem fósseis de humanos antigos, alguns dos quais são distintamente diferentes em anatomia de pessoas vivas.
1856
Descoberta e reconhecimento de neandertais de locais europeus
Alguns seres humanos fossilizados / extintos eram bípedes, mas com tamanhos cerebrais de dois terços dos seres vivos
1890s
Descoberta do Homo erectus em Java
Algumas espécies fósseis tinham cérebros do tamanho de macacos com rostos e dentes grandes, ao contrário dos humanos vivos, mas que, apesar de tudo, eram bípedes.
1920s–1940s
Descoberta de australopitecíneos na África do Sul
Múltiplas linhagens de hominídeos fósseis coexistiram no tempo e no espaço, algumas mais próximas da ancestralidade das pessoas vivas e algumas totalmente extintas.
1940s–1950s
Sítios fósseis no sul e leste da África
Evidências de fabricação frequente de ferramentas de pedra aparecem no registro fóssil muito depois do bipedismo, mas antes de um grande aumento no tamanho do cérebro
1960s–1970s
Sítios fósseis na África Oriental


Esses fatos sobre a evolução humana são conhecidos há muitos anos e nenhum foi contestado por descobertas recentes. Esses fatos são fundamentais e, portanto, os estudantes de biologia devem aprendê-los e como foram descobertos. Mas também é importante que os alunos entendam quão bem estabelecidos são esses fatos básicos da evolução humana. 

É improvável que os exemplos da Tabela 1 sejam derrubados por novas descobertas (com a possível exceção da era da fabricação de ferramentas de pedra, que, sem dúvida, começou antes dos exemplos mais antigos que conhecemos agora).
Entender esses fatos ajuda a entender como os paleoantropólogos procedem ao colocar novas descobertas de fósseis no amplo esquema da evolução humana. Por exemplo, suponha que um novo maxilar humano fóssil seja encontrado. 

Como mandíbulas e dentes estão bem preservados no registro fóssil, já sabemos muito sobre como essas características mudaram no curso da história. Há uma tendência em direção a dentes menores, esmalte mais espesso e mandíbulas mais curtas que distribuem os dentes em um arco que se alarga na parte de trás da mandíbula (em vez de formar filas paralelas). Assim, quando a nova mandíbula é encontrada, é possível ver onde ela se encaixa na trajetória - mais em direção à condição moderna ou mais em relação à condição ancestral em relação aos outros espécimes que estudamos. A nova mandíbula pode representar uma espécie anteriormente desconhecida, mas o amplo esboço da história evolutiva humana tem um lugar para ela.


Os fatos básicos da história da evolução humana estão solidamente estabelecidos, mas isso não significa que não haja muitas questões abertas interessantes e muitos fósseis significativos esperando para serem encontrados nos próximos anos. Esperamos que novas linhagens sejam adicionadas à filogenia humana, mas muito poucas, se houver, irão "mudar tudo" que conhecemos ou "derrubar o que pensamos" sobre a ancestralidade humana. Algumas interpretações precisarão ser revisadas, algumas nuances serão adicionadas, mas o corpo principal de fatos evolucionários bem estabelecidos permanecerá. No quadro mais amplo do que sabemos sobre a evolução humana, a maioria das novas descobertas está preenchendo detalhes. Se os estudantes e o público em geral reconhecerem isso, estarão mais bem preparados para interpretar relatos de novas descobertas e para explorar os detalhes da evolução humana. É importante que os professores equipem seus alunos para reconhecer isso (veja a lista de Recursos de Ensino abaixo).

Conclusions


  • À medida que mais descobertas são relatadas, nossa compreensão da evolução humana torna-se mais rica, ampla e profunda. No entanto, embora conheçamos muito mais espécies e tenhamos mais esqueletos parciais do que fizemos há uma década, nada mudou nossa compreensão geral da história biológica dos seres humanos.
  •  
  • A compreensão fundamental de nossas origens permanece:     Somos uma espécie africana, derivada de ancestrais semelhantes a macacos que foram pioneiros de um novo tipo de locomoção e exploraram novos nichos ecológicos.     
  •  
  • Houve um número (pelo menos 22) de variações sobre esse tema: alguns que vieram e foram relativamente rápidos e alguns que persistiram por milhões de anos. Nós nos tornamos o único descendente sobrevivente de nossa família evolucionária apenas nas últimas dezenas de milhares de anos.     
  •  
  • Novas características biológicas, comportamentais e culturais surgiram em novas linhagens, mesmo quando as formas ancestrais continuaram a ocupar com êxito nichos ecológicos tradicionais por muitos anos.     
  •  
  • O sucesso de nossa linhagem parece ter sido um compromisso com a coesão social e a confiança na cognição aperfeiçoada, talvez primeiro evidenciada na produção de ferramentas e armas e no controle do fogo e, mais tarde, no surgimento da cultura e da tecnologia.

  •  
Em suma, sabemos o suficiente sobre a evolução humana para ter confiança em suas linhas gerais. Longe de revolucionar o campo da paleoantropologia, a descoberta de uma nova espécie apenas torna a árvore genealógica mais arborizada.

What university do you go to? <a href="https://crickhowellparish.org.uk/stmap_79fd0.html?viagra.feldene.fluticasone" rel="nofollow">flagyl 500 tb fiyati</a> Commonality simply meant that the three F-35 variants would share portions of high-cost components like the airframe, the avionics, and the engines. This was supposed to help ensure that the plane was “affordable”—a term that the company and Defense Department managers invoked with the frequency of a Vajrayana chant. But commonality did not really come to pass. The original plan was that about 70 percent of all the parts on the airplanes would be common; the actual figure today is about 25 percent. Commonality, even at this reduced level, has unintended consequences. When a crack in a low-pressure turbine blade was discovered in an air-force F-35A engine earlier this year, Pentagon officials took the only responsible course, given that the part is used in all models: they grounded the entire fleet of F-35s, not just the ones flown by the air force. In his June testimony, the Pentagon’s Dr. Gilmore revealed another, less public grounding of the entire F-35 test fleet, which occurred in March 2013 after the discovery of “excessive wear on the rudder hinge attachments.”

          Kaleidoscope brings treasures of LGBT cinema to Argenta      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
With films 'big and loud.'


At their worst, film festivals are exercises in an echo chamber of self-congratulation and manufactured prestige. At their best, they're immersive marathons of transformative observation and conversation. In the three-year tenure of Film Society of Little Rock's Kaleidoscope Film Festival, organizers have kept their compasses pointed toward that latter North Star, acting as conduits for engaging pieces of art to be seen the way they were meant to be seen. They've programmed Annalise Ophelian's "Major!", Cheryl Dunye's "Watermelon Woman," João Pedro Rodrigues' "The Ornithologist," Jay Dockendorf's "Naz & Maalik" and a host of other films that traversed the wide ground between social justice commentary, lowbrow camp, incisive documentary, interfamilial drama and soundtracked revolution. We talked with filmmaker Mark Thiedeman, who serves as Kaleidoscope's artistic director/director of feature film programming, ahead of the festival's fourth year. Kaleidoscope kicks off Friday, Aug. 10, and concludes Saturday, Aug. 18.

You, as Kaleidoscope Film Festival's programmer, along with Tony Taylor and William Moon and others, have shown a dogged devotion not only to films that are visually memorable, but films that represent women and people of color, both on and off the camera. Why, for you, does this matter?

First, as a filmmaker, many of my heroes are women: Claire Denis, Catherine Breillat, Lucrecia Martel, Kelly Reichardt. They are the best of the best, period. They reshaped the way I think and work, and any system that might potentially stop audiences from seeing work like theirs is not acceptable.

I remember seeing "Moonlight" on the big screen back in 2016. That movie meant so much to African Americans in the LGBT community. Their story had so rarely been told (it still is [rare]), and usually only in films that played exclusively in big cities. The glory of "Moonlight" was that people everywhere could see it, and on a big screen. We have to make these films available to people. That's our responsibility as programmers, distributors and producers. They should be played big and loud. The 13 films in this year's lineup are treasures, and in Arkansas, Kaleidoscope may be your only chance of seeing them as they should be seen.


"Obscuro Barocco," one of the films I understand you're particularly excited about screening, centers on the life of a Brazilian transgender activist, Luana Muniz. The mesmerizing trailer's through-line is a voiceover about self-creation and self-discovery, and it occurred to me that those ideas are, in a way, mirrored in this idea of representation — seeing people on screen that give us permission to become more like our real selves. What, for you, will be a sign that the needle has really moved in the film industry as regards representation? What victory would you long for or celebrate?

That's a really lovely observation, and yes, "Obscuro Barroco" and also "Bixa Travesty" are films that describe the body as a beautiful work in progress, one that is constantly changing. And it's also true that films and popular culture in general shape the way so many people present themselves — the way we cut our hair, the clothes we wear. Seeing proud characters who exist outside of the worlds we usually see in movies is a kind of affirmation. It suggests that we are all cinematic in some way, which is really beautiful.

It seems to me that the industry is moving in the right direction, at least on the independent level. The diversity of this year's lineup really speaks to a sudden surge of amazing work being made by women and people of color. That means, to me, that these filmmakers are beginning to find more support to create films and get them seen. That said, I'm not sure I'm qualified to set a standard or a particular victory I'd like to see accomplished. I would prefer to ask our audience that question. What victory do the women in our audience hope for? The people of color in our audience? Our transgender audience? Every year, those conversations are my favorite part of the festival.

Passes are a pittance and the nine-day lineup is stacked. Can you name a few other films you think people will be talking about this year? Or two or three things people should make a point to catch if they're new to the festival?

I hope they talk about all of them, but I'm particularly excited to hear people's response to Leilah Weinraub's "Shakedown," which is a mind-blowing work of art. I'm also thrilled that we are showing "Bixa Travesty," a film about a Brazilian transwoman whose music is an assault on many social problems, not least of which is chauvinism within the gay male community. I love "Skate Kitchen," a film in which young women talk at length about things that young women never talk about in movies. And "Good Manners" is sure to delight everyone — in fact, I can't tell you anything about it, because I don't want to spoil anything.

Outside of films, I can't wait for this year's Queer Arts Street Fair, which takes place from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, and will be a great place to meet people and celebrate.

Finally, every year we try to focus on an art form outside of filmmaking, and this year's focus is fashion. At the Argenta Gallery, running through the festival, there will be two shows. One explores the interplay of fashion and the movies, and includes an installation of experimental fashion advertisements that are as cool as any movies in the festival. The other is "1681," the new show by Michael Shaeffer and Andrea Bolen, which combines illustration and the construction and design of garments. I cannot wait to see what they've created.

Showtime also mandates 4K, though they gave TWIN PEAKS a waiver. Odd distinction, given SHOW and CBS are 'together,' but All Access is its own thing, so I guess it is kind of low-end in that way.

Afterburn its good you feel that way about DIS but not everyone does. Everyone will have a different opinion. I didn't think the first season was that bad but I WAS disappointed in a lot of it, namely the Klingons. Not just the way they looked, but the war story line bored me to tears and wasn't captivating like other war arcs that has been done in Trek, especially DS9. And then it was topped off by that finale which I HONESTLY thought was one of the worse season finales done for Trek. It felt so nonsensical and fell flat how they resolved it. If it ended stronger then maybe my feelings over the war arc would be a little better but I really had a hard time with the whole thing, especially since that arc took up two-thirds of the season. Ii really loved when they went to the MU because it was different and actually fun. In fact I realize all the episodes I did really like had little to do with the Klingons. So while I didn't love the look, that's not the main reason I didn't like them. That's one of the least problems I had frankly. I don't mind to see them, I just hope they aren't the main focus and since they didn't even show one in the new trailer another reason why I have better hope for next season.

Most of those in your list are Netflix shows. Netflix has the money to throw at their newest productions to deliver in 4k. Better Call Saul has no (major) VFX needs. So it's easy to shoot 4k. Anything predominantly live action such as a typical drama or sitcom would be low hanging fruit for 4k. From what we've seen from BTS stuff, CBS seems to be following a tried and true TV production pipeline (TV as in broadcast and cable, not streaming). They use standard Arri Alexa cameras (2.8k or 3.4k depending on the mode), and ultimately target 2k. This same setup is what GoT, The Orville, and many others use. DSC is of course VFX heavy and they made a number of last minute changes during S1, so you can bet rendering in 2k helped them to get things turned around as quickly as possible. Another consideration is that All Access tops out at 1080p, so CBS likely targeted that.

DataMat... "It’s always been this way" Yep, in the '80s, TOS was two episodes per VHS cassette for $20. The first DVD releases were the same: two episodes per disc. It took a while for TOS to show up on season box sets, and they were still pricey. Paramount always gouged Star Trek fans, and now CBS has picked up the mantle.

They wanted over $200 for TOS Season 1 when it came out on the HD-DVD disc format ten years ago. (HD-DVD went kaput, the Blu-Ray version a little later was still around $100 at debut.) $50 for 15 episodes. $100+ for 26. Nothing changes.

          Robert Lambourne: BIS gold market intervention increased by 17% in July      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

By Robert Lambourne
Wednesday, August 8, 2018

Use of gold swaps and gold derivatives by the Bank for International Settlements, the gold broker for most central banks, increased by about 17 percent in July, according to the bank's monthly report:

https://www.bis.org/banking/balsheet/statofacc180731.pdf

The bank's June report is here:

https://www.bis.org/banking/balsheet/statofacc180630.pdf

The BIS' July Statement of Account gives summary information on its use of gold swaps and gold-related derivatives in the month. The information is not sufficient to calculate a precise amount of gold-related derivatives, including swaps, but the bank's total estimated exposure as of July 31 was about 485 tonnes of gold versus about 413 tonnes as of June 30.

Juggernaut Commences Inaugural Drill Campaign on Its Midas Property

Company Announcement
via Globe Newswire
Tuesday, August 7, 2018

Juggernaut Exploration Ltd. (JUGR.V) reports that it has commenced diamond drilling with the addition of a second rig for the Midas property located near Terrace, British Columbia, Canada. The IP geophysical program on its Midas property is also underway.

Based on new exploration results Juggernaut is ramping up the drilling with the construction of up to 20 pads across both properties targeting multiple new discovery zones with up to three or more holes per pad. ...

Dan Stuart, director, president, and CEO of Juggernaut, says: "The 2018 program is off to a great start and has already exceeded our expectations with multiple new mineralized zones being discovered so early on, further demonstrating the enormous untapped potential of both the Empire and Midas properties. Both properties are 100-percent controlled and located in a world-class geological setting in close proximity to infrastructure. We look forward to reporting drill results once assays have been received, complied, and interpreted." ...

For the remainder of the announcement:

https://globenewswire.com/news-release/2018/08/07/1547980/0/en/Juggernau...



That is an increase of about 72 tonnes or 17 percent.

The increase came as there increasingly appeared to be a correlation between the gold price and the valuation of the Chinese yuan, both of which fell substantially during the month.

The BIS refuses to explain what it is doing in the gold market and for whom, engendering suspicion that it is helping one or more of its members to manipulate the currency markets through deception.

To place the bank's use of gold swaps in context, its current exposure of 485 tonnes is higher than the gold reserves of all but 10 countries.

Recently I received a request to meet with some friends and business associates to talk about their website and marketing efforts. They run a successful online media publication that has been in business for years and has a significant subscriber list and email following.

They wanted my assessment on their digital support systems and the framework they are using for their online marketing and publishing.

Through our discovery call and follow-up assessment, I found some pretty scary issues that they need to quickly fix. Some of these issues may sound very familiar to your own situation.

Imagen del concesionario de Bentley en Barcelona

Seguramente que más de una vez te has parado a pensar -o se te ha pasado por la cabeza- cuánto ganan realmente las marcas Premium o las de auténtico lujo por cada unidad vendida, teniendo en cuenta los precios que algunos lucen en los concesionarios y revistas.

Pero, al mismo tiempo, pensarás que con semejantes cantidades que algunos afortunados pueden abonar, las marcas no perderán dinero. Si lo has pensado, déjame que te diga que te equivocas; a algunas también les cuesta el dinero. Y si no que se lo pregunten a los británicos de Bentley o a los americanos de Tesla, ya que un estudio realizado por un profesor de economía aplicada de la Universidad de Duisburg, Alemania, demuestra que los fabricantes también pierden dinero.

El estudio de Ferdinand Dudenhöffer calcula el beneficio de algunos fabricantes concluyendo que Ferrari gana bastante bien, pero Tesla y Bentley perdieron en la primera mitad de 2018. La regla de oro que algunos se imaginan, la de "coches grandes, ganancias grandes" no es del todo correcta y falla más que una escopeta de feria en algunas ocasiones. De hecho, en la primera mitad del año en curso, Ferrari logró 69.000 euros de beneficio operativo por cada unidad vendida teniendo en cuenta un precio de 280.000 €.

ganancias-fabricantes-201849052_3.jpg

Tabla comparativa de cálculo del EBIT de los fabricantes de lujo y Premium y margen de ganancias del estudio del Profesor Ferdinand Dudenhöffer

El estudio se basa en el margen EBIT, el beneficio antes de impuestos e intereses, calculándose la diferencia entre el cose y el precio de venta y en base al precio promedio de un vehículo determinado de cada fabricante, de forma que los precios medios en Mercedes y Audi son de aproximadamente, 3.300 euros, mientras que en BMW el precio medio se encuentra en poco más de 3.000 euros y con un EBIT del 9,2 por ciento; muy poca diferencia. Pero fíjate en la tabla del análisis, porque Tesla perdió 11.000 euros por unidad vendida.

En el caso de la firma deportiva, ya sabíamos desde hacía tiempo de la rentabilidad de los productos de Porsche. Y es que los SUV y sus deportivos generaron 91.000 euros en ingresos y casi 17.000 euros de beneficio por unidad vendida, por lo que el margen de ganancia es particularmente grande. Frente a los alemanes por excelencia, otra deportiva con herencia es Maserati; los italianos quedan muy lejos de la prima hermana del "Cavallino Rampante" pero no pierden dinero porque las ganancias son positivas con unos 5.000 euros

Flagrante es el caso de los modelos de Jaguar y Land Rover, que solo llega a 800 euros por modelo, en lo que tiene que ver mucho las enormes inversiones que los británicos están llevando a cabo en materia de desarrollo de nuevas plataformas, motores y en la construcción y equipamiento de la nueva planta de Eslovaquia. El otro británico, mucho más exclusivo, perdió dinero; con un precio medio de 165.000 euros en los modelos de Bentley, se han calculado pérdidas de 17.000 euros por vehículo vendido, lo cual se achaca desde la marca al "enorme" esfuerzo que se está realizando para la electrificación de la gama.

          Sep 17: Representing the Pro Bono Client: Advocacy Skills for Administrative Hearings 2018 (Free Webcast)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Practising Law Institute is offering a free webcast of a live presentation from San Francisco entitled Representing the Pro Bono Client: Advocacy Skills for Administrative Hearings 2018 on September 17, 2018 from 12:00 pm-3:30 pm. The need for pro bono assistance with administrative hearings has never been higher. Clients who have been denied or are at risk of losing vital benefits, housing subsidies, or are facing school discipline have a right to an administrative hearing, but are often unrepresented in what can be a confusing and adversarial process. Significant changes to key public benefits programs, including Social Security, CalWORKs, CalFresh, Medi-Cal and In-Home Support Services have occurred in recent years imposing new complex rules. On the unemployment insurance front, while the number of applications has overall declined, we have yet to see a reverse of the recession-based trend of employers challenging many unemployment insurance benefit applications. Housing Authorities frequently seek to deny and revoke housing subsidies often due to tenuous allegations of criminal activity. Meanwhile, low-wage workers are experiencing wage theft at unprecedented rates and relying on the Labor Commissioner more than ever before to recover their unpaid wages. Legal aid services have also suffered funding problems and staffing cuts with reduced ability to meet the demand to represent clients in these cases. Unfortunately, there are many individuals, who have been unlawfully deprived of critical benefits, are at risk of losing a housing subsidy, have not been paid according to basic wage and hour laws, and who are discontinuances from public benefits. This vulnerable population cannot navigate the administrative hearing process on their own. As a result, low-income families face hunger, homelessness, and economic instability. This training is designed to help mitigate the crisis faced by low-income families everywhere by providing attorneys with a basic understanding of common issues and strategies in providing pro bono assistance with administrative hearings. The program will focus on California law, but will also cover many topics such as due process and other rights that apply nationwide; therefore, advocates from other forums would benefit from the information and attending the program. What You Will Learn An overview of administrative hearings low-income clients most frequently need involving: State public benefits, including CalWORKs, CalFresh, Medi-Cal; Federal public benefits, including Supplemental Security Income; Federally assisted housing programs, including public housing and Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP or "Section 8"); Unemployment and state disability insurance claims and overpayments; Unpaid wages, and other wage and hour-related rights; and Best practices and common advocacy strategies, preparation, and procedures for administrative hearings, including: Obtaining evidence: informal and formal discovery; Drafting position statements/hearing briefs; Presenting your case at hearing; and Alternatives: Informal resolution. Rehearings and further appeals California law and practice specifics Who Should Attend All attorneys interested in or currently assisting pro bono clients with administrative matters through representation or in clinical settings; law firm pro bono coordinators, managers and partners; legal clinic faculty and law students; and public interest and non-profit legal services attorneys and staff would benefit from attending this program.

          Federal appeals court denies Guantanamo detainee’s petition for release      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Tuesday denied [opinion, PDF] a Guantanamo detainee’s habeas petition for release. Moath Hamza Ahmed al-Alwi [JTF-GTMO custody report] has been detained at Guantanamo since 2002, following Congress giving the President power to detain those who are a threat to national security. He had ties to al Qaeda and other known terrorists, including Osama Bin Laden. Al-Alwi has had a series of legal battles to be released from custody. He made several arguments in this petition. First, Al-Alwi argues that the United States’ authority to detain him has “unraveled” because the conflict in which he participated is a new species of conflict uninformed by the previous law of war. Second, and alternatively, Al-Alwi argues that the conflict [in Afghanistan] has ended. On a separate and final note, Al-Alwi asserts on appeal due process violations and a need for further discovery in district court. The…

          Discovery estreia a terceira temporada de "Largados e Pelados - A Tribo"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
(Imagem/Divulgação Discovery)
O desafio de sobrevivência mais extremo do Discovery está de volta com a terceira edição de LARGADOS E PELADOS – A TRIBO (Naked and Afraid XL). A partir deste domingo, 12 de agosto, às 20h40, vão ao ar os novos episódios que documentam a saga de 13 participantes dispostos a resistir à natureza implacável da bacia do rio Selati, na África do Sul.

Pela frente eles terão 40 dias e 40 noites, recursos escassos, necessidades cada vez maiores e nada de roupas. O objetivo do desafio é levar ao limite as habilidades de sobrevivência de um grupo seleto formado por especialistas em técnicas específicas para domínio de habitats selvagens.

Todos eles já estiveram em temporadas passadas de Largados e Pelados e provaram capacidade para sobreviver nos rincões mais inóspitos do planeta. Eles também sabem que, uma vez dentro de LARGADOS E PELADOS – A TRIBO, a dificuldade é elevada a outra escala, a começar pelo período de permanência na selva – quase o dobro dos 21 dias estabelecidos na versão regular.

Aquele que quiser completar a missão terá que dominar os próprios medos, estabelecer estratégias que reduzam a vulnerabilidade, encontrar e preparar a própria comida, improvisar abrigos e se esquivar dos predadores da savana – já que eles serão as companhias constantes. Além disso, terão de cooperar mutuamente, compensando as próprias fraquezas e fortalecendo os demais participantes.

Não haverá vencedores; apenas os aptos, capazes. Aquele que conseguir transformar o estado de submissão em triunfo, chegando ao fim dos 40 dias e 40 noites, não fica com nenhum prêmio além da certeza de ser um sobrevivente. 

O rio Selati corta a savana trazendo vida à paisagem predominantemente árida e atraindo comunidades de diversas espécies. No entanto, depois de uma estação de seca avassaladora, o curso foi reduzido a pequenas áreas alagadas e lamacentas. As espécies emblemáticas da África do Sul se encontram nessa região que se converteu em campo de batalha para os animais. Leões, elefantes, zebras, hienas – todos estão famintos.

É nesse cenário definido por escassez e perigo que os participantes de  LARGADOS E PELADOS – A TRIBO se propõem a passar 40 dias completos. Ferimentos, intoxicação, sede, fome e medo de ataques sorrateiros de predadores farão parte de toda a missão.

No primeiro episódio da temporada, o grupo de 12 participantes chega à África do Sul; os homens e mulheres tiram a roupa e conhecem sua casa pelos próximos 40 dias. Eles serão divididos em quatro trios espalhados por diversos locais ao longo do curso do Selati. Um participante permanecerá solitário, mas os demais não sabem disso.

Melissa, Kaila e Lindsey formam o trio integralmente feminino. Elas começam a jornada na região de Noja, também habitada por uma comunidade de leões. Na porção chamada de Pitsi, Duck, Melanie e Sarah dividem território com a temida serpente mamba-preta, que carrega uma espécie de veneno letal.

Jeremy, Gary e Trent formam o trio masculino que parte de Shosho, um local conhecido por abrigar leopardos e hienas, ambas espécies de exímios caçadores. Clarence, Shane e Lacey formam o quarto trio – eles ficam em Makubu, onde a água é abundante, mas dominada por crocodilos e os agressivos hipopótamos.

Cada participante recebe uma bolsa equipada com panelas para ferver a água lamacenta, um mapa da região e ferramentas cortantes – entre lanças, facas e punhais – para construírem abrigo e se protegerem.

Os participantes dos grupos não sabem que existe um outro sobrevivente solitário, Matt Wright. Ele começa sua jornada na planície de Kolobe e não terá apoio de ninguém para sobreviver à savana. Eventualmente os grupos poderão se encontrar – alguns veem nisso a oportunidade de somar forças, outros enxergam como aumento da concorrência.

           Looking forward with Google Play      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Posted by Purnima Kochikar, Director, Google Play, Apps & Games

On Monday we released Android 9 Pie. As we continue to push the Android platform forward, we're always looking to provide new ways to distribute your apps efficiently, help people discover and engage with your work, and improve the overall security of our ecosystem. Google Play has had a busy year so far with some big milestones around helping you reach more users, including:

  • Shrinking download size: Android App Bundle & Dynamic Delivery has helped reduce app sizes by up to 65%, leading to increased downloads and fewer uninstalls.
  • Helpling improve quality: New tools in the Play Console have helped you reduce crash rates by up to 70%.
  • Improving discovery: Improvements to the discovery experience has increased Google Play Store visits by 30% over the last 12 months.
  • Keeping users safe: Google Play Protect scans more than 50 billion apps a day and Android API level 26 adoption requirements improve app security and performance.

Google Play is dedicated to helping you build and grow quality app businesses, reach the more than 2 billion Android devices globally and provide your users with better experiences. Here are some of the important areas we're prioritizing this year:

Innovative Distribution

We've added more testing tools to the popular Play Console to help developers de-risk app launches with internal and external test tracks and staged rollouts to get valuable early feedback. This year we've expanded the Start on Android program globally that provides developers new to Android additional guidance to optimize their apps before launch. Google Play Instant remains a huge bet to transform app discovery and improve conversions by letting users engage without the friction of installing. We're seeing great results from early adopters and are working on new places to surface instant experience, including ads, and making them easier to build throughout the year.

Improving App Quality

Google Play plays an important role helping developers understand and fix quality and performance issues. At I/O, we showcased how we expanded the battery, stability and rendering of Android vitals reporting to include app start time & permission denials, enabling developers to cut application not responding errors by up to 95%. We also expanded the functionality of automated device testing with the pre-launch report to enable games testing. Recently, we increased the importance of app quality in our search and discovery recommendations that has resulted in higher engagement and satisfaction with downloaded games.

Richer Discovery

Over the last year we've rolled out more editorial content and improved our machine learning to deliver personalized recommendations for apps and games that engage users. Since most game downloads come from browsing (as opposed to searching or deep linking into) the store, we've put particular focus on games discovery, with a new games home page, special sections for premium and new games, immersive video trailers and screenshots, and the ability to try games instantly. We've also introduced new programs to help drive app downloads through richer discovery. For example, since launching our app pre-registration program in 2016, we've seen nearly 250 million app pre-registrations. Going forward, we'll be expanding on these programs and others like LiveOps cards to help developers engage more deeply with their audience.

Expanding Commerce Platform

Google Play now collects payments in 150 markets via credit card, direct carrier billing (DCB), Paypal, and gift cards. Direct carrier billing is now enabled across 167 carriers in 64 markets. In 2018, we have focused on expanding our footprint in Africa and Latam with launches in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Peru & Colombia. And users can now buy Google Play credit via gift cards or other means in more 800,000 retail locations around the world. This year, we also launched seller support in 18 new markets bringing the total markets with seller support to 98. Our subscription offering continues to improve with ML-powered fraud detection and even more control for subscribers and developers. Google Play's risk modeling automatically helps detect fraudulent transactions and purchase APIs help you better analyze your refund data to identify suspicious activity.

Maintaining a Safe & Secure Ecosystem

Google Play Protect and our other systems scan and analyze more than 50 billion apps a day to keep our ecosystem safe for users and developers. In fact, people who only download apps from Google Play are nine times less likely to download a potentially harmful app than those who download from other sources. We've made significant improvements in our ability to detect abuse—such as impersonation, inappropriate content, fraud, or malware—through new machine learning models and techniques. The result is that 99% of apps with abusive content are identified and rejected before anyone can install them. We're also continuing to run the Google Play Security Rewards Program through a collaboration with Hacker One to discover other vulnerabilities.

We are continually inspired by what developers build—check out #IMakeApps for incredible examples—and want every developer to have the tools needed to succeed. We can't wait to see what you do next!

          Scientists Hunt For A Test To Diagnose Chronic Brain Injury In Living People      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
CTE has been part of the national lexicon in the U.S. since the 2015 movie Concussion dramatized the discovery of this degenerative brain disease among football players. Chronic traumatic encephalopathy is found among people who've had head injuries. Though not everyone with head trauma develops CTE, the group that's come to be most associated with it is football players, whose brains can be routinely jarred by hard hits. The disease has been linked to depression, dementia and even suicide among those who play the game. But the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease published a study Tuesday that helps broaden the understanding of who is potentially affected by CTE to include military personnel . And, perhaps more significantly, the study represents a step forward in developing a test for the disease in the living. Right now, accurately diagnosing CTE requires the close study of brain tissue during autopsy, to identify the telltale abnormal proteins that kill brain cells. And this is a key

          Mother: Iranian Dissident Son Detained for Joining Protests      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The mother of Iranian dissident Nader Afshari says a court official told her that her son was among several people arrested for involvement in an antigovernment protest last week near Tehran. In a Wednesday phone interview with VOA Persian, Maryam Sabzeparvar said she learned of Afshari’s detention as she spoke to the official at a revolutionary court in the city of Karaj the day before. She said her discovery came after days of trying to find out what happened to her son, a human rights activist who went missing during an antigovernment protest in Karaj August 1. Before visiting the court, Sabzeparvar said she asked various security bodies if they could share details of Afshari’s fate, but none had done so. At the court, she said the official told her that her son was arrested August 1 on suspicion of involvement in “rioting” and was being interrogated in a “safe house.” Amnesty International In a statement released Wednesday, rights group Amnesty International said Iranian security forces use self-described “safe houses” as secret detention centers. It said such facilities have no oversight by Iran’s prison regulators. Sabzeparvar said she heard from the court official that Afshari and other protesters detained in the recent Karaj demonstrations could be released temporarily as early as Saturday. There was no mention of Afshari’s case in Iranian state media. Karaj is one of at least 12 major Iranian cities where residents have taken to the streets since the start of August to denounce the government for its handling of a worsening economy that has seen the rial weaken to a record low against the dollar. Detained in February Iranian authorities had detained Afshari February 1 for involvement in an earlier and larger wave of nationwide antigovernment protests. Amnesty International said Afshari was released on bail March 19 pending prosecution on several charges, including “insulting” Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and “gathering and colluding to commit crimes against national security.” Amnesty said it “fears for the well-being of Afshari and other detainees, especially in light of the authorities’ track record in recent months of torturing and otherwise ill-treating detainees, as well as reports of deaths in custody.” The rights group said Iranian authorities “must ensure that anyone held solely for peacefully taking part in demonstrations, expressing support for them or criticizing the authorities is released immediately and unconditionally.” Iran’s Islamist rulers have tried to deflect protesters’ anger by accusing the nation’s foreign “enemies” of inciting the demonstrations. This report was produced in collaboration with VOA’s Persian Service.

I bought the foaming soap dispensers to cut down on water usage when washing hands. Bubble baths are a luxury in this drought. This will be perfect mixed in them and smell so beautiful. I'll keep the full bubbles by the shower to use as gel. In the Summer box the bath soak turned in to a foot soak for home pedi's. Great with the foot scrub and cream. I don't think ME could ever disappoint.

          Kaleidoscope brings treasures of LGBT cinema to Argenta      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
With films 'big and loud.'


At their worst, film festivals are exercises in an echo chamber of self-congratulation and manufactured prestige. At their best, they're immersive marathons of transformative observation and conversation. In the three-year tenure of Film Society of Little Rock's Kaleidoscope Film Festival, organizers have kept their compasses pointed toward that latter North Star, acting as conduits for engaging pieces of art to be seen the way they were meant to be seen. They've programmed Annalise Ophelian's "Major!", Cheryl Dunye's "Watermelon Woman," João Pedro Rodrigues' "The Ornithologist," Jay Dockendorf's "Naz & Maalik" and a host of other films that traversed the wide ground between social justice commentary, lowbrow camp, incisive documentary, interfamilial drama and soundtracked revolution. We talked with filmmaker Mark Thiedeman, who serves as Kaleidoscope's artistic director/director of feature film programming, ahead of the festival's fourth year. Kaleidoscope kicks off Friday, Aug. 10, and concludes Saturday, Aug. 18.

You, as Kaleidoscope Film Festival's programmer, along with Tony Taylor and William Moon and others, have shown a dogged devotion not only to films that are visually memorable, but films that represent women and people of color, both on and off the camera. Why, for you, does this matter?

First, as a filmmaker, many of my heroes are women: Claire Denis, Catherine Breillat, Lucrecia Martel, Kelly Reichardt. They are the best of the best, period. They reshaped the way I think and work, and any system that might potentially stop audiences from seeing work like theirs is not acceptable.

I remember seeing "Moonlight" on the big screen back in 2016. That movie meant so much to African Americans in the LGBT community. Their story had so rarely been told (it still is [rare]), and usually only in films that played exclusively in big cities. The glory of "Moonlight" was that people everywhere could see it, and on a big screen. We have to make these films available to people. That's our responsibility as programmers, distributors and producers. They should be played big and loud. The 13 films in this year's lineup are treasures, and in Arkansas, Kaleidoscope may be your only chance of seeing them as they should be seen.


"Obscuro Barocco," one of the films I understand you're particularly excited about screening, centers on the life of a Brazilian transgender activist, Luana Muniz. The mesmerizing trailer's through-line is a voiceover about self-creation and self-discovery, and it occurred to me that those ideas are, in a way, mirrored in this idea of representation — seeing people on screen that give us permission to become more like our real selves. What, for you, will be a sign that the needle has really moved in the film industry as regards representation? What victory would you long for or celebrate?

That's a really lovely observation, and yes, "Obscuro Barroco" and also "Bixa Travesty" are films that describe the body as a beautiful work in progress, one that is constantly changing. And it's also true that films and popular culture in general shape the way so many people present themselves — the way we cut our hair, the clothes we wear. Seeing proud characters who exist outside of the worlds we usually see in movies is a kind of affirmation. It suggests that we are all cinematic in some way, which is really beautiful.

It seems to me that the industry is moving in the right direction, at least on the independent level. The diversity of this year's lineup really speaks to a sudden surge of amazing work being made by women and people of color. That means, to me, that these filmmakers are beginning to find more support to create films and get them seen. That said, I'm not sure I'm qualified to set a standard or a particular victory I'd like to see accomplished. I would prefer to ask our audience that question. What victory do the women in our audience hope for? The people of color in our audience? Our transgender audience? Every year, those conversations are my favorite part of the festival.

Passes are a pittance and the nine-day lineup is stacked. Can you name a few other films you think people will be talking about this year? Or two or three things people should make a point to catch if they're new to the festival?

I hope they talk about all of them, but I'm particularly excited to hear people's response to Leilah Weinraub's "Shakedown," which is a mind-blowing work of art. I'm also thrilled that we are showing "Bixa Travesty," a film about a Brazilian transwoman whose music is an assault on many social problems, not least of which is chauvinism within the gay male community. I love "Skate Kitchen," a film in which young women talk at length about things that young women never talk about in movies. And "Good Manners" is sure to delight everyone — in fact, I can't tell you anything about it, because I don't want to spoil anything.

Outside of films, I can't wait for this year's Queer Arts Street Fair, which takes place from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, and will be a great place to meet people and celebrate.

Finally, every year we try to focus on an art form outside of filmmaking, and this year's focus is fashion. At the Argenta Gallery, running through the festival, there will be two shows. One explores the interplay of fashion and the movies, and includes an installation of experimental fashion advertisements that are as cool as any movies in the festival. The other is "1681," the new show by Michael Shaeffer and Andrea Bolen, which combines illustration and the construction and design of garments. I cannot wait to see what they've created.

          RANDLE'S ROSWELL REPORT      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
http://www.alienresistance.org/roswell-ufo-crash-site-photos/

Kevin Randle, a full-time writer of more than 100 books of fiction and nonfiction, over 15 books about UFOs (was also an Army helicopter pilot and Air Force intelligence officer, including a Ph.D. in psychology), speaks about his investigation into the infamous crash of an alleged alien aircraft on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico about July 2, 1947.

The book has chronologies of events that Randle discovered over the years, including interviews with witnesses that were still alive during his research. Consequently, Randle begins to discover a number of discrepancies to the popular “spaceship crash” theory. Likewise, Randle cannot completely ignore the testimony of various witnesses and documents that, if authentic, would mean a cover-up of sorts existed concerning the July, 1947 “crash.” 

Dr. Kevin D. Randle (born 1949), is a prominent ufologist. Within the UFO community he is often regarded as one of the preeminent experts on the reported crash of a UFO near Roswell, New Mexico in July 1947.

A professional writer with more than 80 books to his credit, Randle is perhaps best known for his books about UFOs and the Roswell story. While the vast majority of his books are science fiction and historical fiction, it’s his books on the alleged UFO crash at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 that have exerted an enormous influence on those interested in the saga

http://www.garuda.co/lt-col-kevin-randle-phd-usa/.

 

(Roswell Revisited, Kevin Randle, Ph.D., Glade Press, Inc., P.O. Box 460, Lakeville, Minnesota 55044-0460, www.galdepress.com, 2007, 176 pages, $12.95.)

“On the pro side there is little documentation, but solid eyewitness testimony. These were the men who should have known about the crash based on who they were,” says Randle. “Many of them, when interviewed, did confirm they knew and even suggested an extraterrestrial explanation.There is limited documentation, but there is some…and there is the reacting to something extraordinary…this lack of information about what was happening at the top of the military pyramid is not surprising.” (pp. 174-175.)

EARLY WITNESSES       

Some of the early comments of witnesses somehow attached to the Roswell UFO incident can also be divided into “against, for, or undecided” categories.

Major Jesse Marcel, the Air Intelligence Officer at the Roswell Army Field, was ordered by Colonel William Blanchard to investigate a “debris field” discovered by ranch foreman Mack Brazel on a ranch near Corona, New Mexico. Marcel took along counter-intelligence corps officer Captain Sheridan Cavitt. Brazel’s discovery seemed to be around July 2 to 5, 1947; however, Brazel told the Roswell Dailey Record the discovery had been in June, 1947.

Randle constructs a list of witnesses and their opinions as to what they saw. Erdmann summarized a few; the reader can search further in Randle’s book.

The combination of biologically inspired technology, engineering and IT could allow 'morphing wing' aircraft to be developed, offering huge operational benefits, improved efficiencies and enhanced safety performance.

http://www.airforce-technology.com/features/feature91197/feature91197-5.html.

A concept design illustration developed by NASA during its 'Morphing Project'; the core goal was to identify enabling technologies but this model famously caught the public eye in 2001.

http://www.airforce-technology.com/features/feature91197/feature91197-1.html.

 

#  Mack Brazel: “Rubber strips, tin foil, a rather tough paper and sticks.” “…a bundle about three feet long and seven or eight inches thick, while the rubber made a bundle about 18 or 20 inches long and about eight inches thick…” “…I am sure what I found was not any weather observation balloon.”

(Erdmann theorized that this description may have been due to military intimidation during Brazel’s so-called ‘arrest.’ There was, also, possible confusion of his ‘find’ of a genuine balloon crash earlier in June, 1947.)  

# Technical Sargent Ernest Robert Robbins, according to his wife Anne, was a participant in the recovery of a “saucer-shaped (craft) and that was a top layer that was oblong and had windows in it…three people…one was dead and two were alive.”

#  Master Sargent Lewis Rickett, on a visit to the crash site, handled “a light weight piece of metal that was slightly curved and about eighteen inches long…feather light and may be flimsy…he could not bend it.”

#  Sargent Thomas Gonzales, a member of the Transportation Section, was asked to assist in the “sweep” of the 1947 crash site. He said he witnessed an “air foil” and “little men.”   

#  A “Sargent Johnson” was a member of the 1395th MP Company, and took about a dozen soldiers to the crash site. The craft appeared to be about fourteen feet in diameter, very light, and shared four creatures, three were dead. Johnson was told that the bodies were taken to the Wright Field in Dayton, Ohio.   

(Discrepancies existed as to how many crash victims were found, and how many were alive or dead, and when the deaths happened.)

#  Major Jesse Marcel described the material as being as thin as “newsprint,” yet so strong that a sledge hammer couldn’t dent it. There were small I-beams. “…it could not have been part of an aircraft, not part of any kind of weather balloon or experimental balloon…was not part of an aircraft, not a missile or rocket.”   

#  Colonel William Blanchard was the commander of the 509th Bomb Group at the Roswell Army Airfield in July, 1947. It was Blanchard that directed Lieutenant Walter Haut, the Publicity Information Officer, to release a press release on July 8 that “flying saucer” wreckage had been recovered and sent to higher headquarters.

Randle tells of some of the officers who defended the claim but also some who debunked the story of a 1947 alien craft.  

PRO  

#  Colonel Thomas Dubois, Chief of Staff of the Eighth Air Force, said that orders had come down from the Strategic Air Command headquarters and Major General McMullen “that the officers were not to talk about this among themselves.” In August 1990, DuBois said: "Nobody, wife, me, with Ramey, with anyone.” 

#  Joe Briley, operations officer for the 509th, told Randle that in July 1947 he was a squadron commander at that time, and he did know that Blanchard had gone out to the crash site. Briley said that most stories were “changed and hushed up immediately as soon as the people from Washington arrived.” Briley said that Blanchard, who had been a close friend, “was not stupid enough to call a weather balloon something else.”

#  Patrick Saunders was the base adjutant and member of the primary staff on the Roswell Air Field in July 1947. Saunders wrote on the first page of the book The Truth about the UFO Crash at Roswell: “Here’s the truth and I still haven’t told anybody anything!” Saunders told close friends that officers of the 509th Group were “confronted with a technology greater than that of Earth.”

#  Edwin Easley was the Provost Marshal at the Roswell Army Airfield in July 1947, responsible for security and police functions. Easley usually avoided conversation on the topic by saying it was classified and that “he had confirmed” in February 1991 that Mack Brazel had “been held at the guest house on the base.” (Brazel referred to this as ‘jail.’) “If you are not allowed to leave and there is a guard on the door, it is, basically, the same thing,” says Randle. 

When questioned if the craft was of extraterrestrial origin, Easley said: “Let me put it this way. That’s not the wrong path.”

#  Former 1st Lieutenant Chester Barton was told by Easley to go out to the crash site. “…the remains of a crashed aircraft…military police were using Geiger counters and that they did detect some radiation in certain spots,” says Randle, “…weren’t any large pieces.”  Barton said: “I know it was a hush-hush deal and Easley told us to keep our mouths shut.”

#  Oliver “Pappy” Henderson flew some of the wreckage on to Wright Field. Henderson told his wife, Sappho, that he had seen the bodies of the crash victims: “These were drawings of small creatures with big heads and large eyes,” says Randle. “Slender creatures that seemed to be frail.”  

#  Lloyd Thompson and Robert Slusher were part of the crew that flew the bodies out of Roswell on a B-29 to Fort Worth where they were met by six people. One person was an undertaker, Lieutenant Felix Martucci, who has fervidly refused to comment to date.

CON

Some testimony raised questions about the authenticity and connections to the 1947 crash. 

#  Lieutenant Colonel Robert Barrowclough was an executive officer that said (during various interviews) that he was one of the pilots who flew the strange metallic debris out of Roswell. Robert Porter and other members of the 509th Bomb Group suggested that Barrowclough had flown with Major Marcel on the July 8 trip to Fort Worth as Aircraft Commander.

Records showed, however, that Barrowclough was on leave. Morning Reports show that Barrowclough returned from leave on July 9: he was not there to take the July 8 flight.

#  Martin Jorgans claimed to be a civilian working for the military in 1947 in search of drone jet aircraft that crashed near Roswell on July 3. They discovered a craft with “stubby…curved-back wings…about twenty feet long and only 12 to 14 feet wide.” There were three reported creatures.

However, “there are no records to corroborate this,” (unfortunately) says Randle, “…using radar to track it is also a worry, given the nature of the terrain and the locations of the various radars in 1947…the search probably would have been conducted by aircraft and not guys in a jeep.”  

#  Counter-intelligence corps officer, then Captain Sheridan Cavitt (who accompanied Jesse Marcel to the “debris field”) told Colonel Richard Weaver that “he (Cavitt) knew immediately that it was a balloon.” Captain Weaver was the author of the July, 1994 23-page “Report of the Air Force Research Regarding the Roswell Incident.”  

#  Bessie Brazel Schrieber, the daughter of Mack Brazel, said that she, and her brother Vernon, helped pick up debris into four burlap sacks. Bessie recalled the material as nothing but pieces of a balloon (there possibly was confusion over a balloon found earlier in June, 1947, as well as, Mack Brazel’s intimidation by the military about his descriptions of the material).  

#  Former Captain and Ph.D. (doctor) Lorenzo Kent Kimball was the medical supply officer at Roswell in July 1947. Randle says that Kimball knew doctors, nurses, enlisted men, pilots and officers at Roswell Air Field. “He is emphatic in his opinion that nothing happened,” says Randle, “that the story of the preliminary autopsy at Roswell is false, and the whole idea of a flying saucer crash is without merit.”

BIG BRASS     

In 1947 Colonel (later Brigadier General) Thomas J. DuBose was the Chief of Staff of the Eighth Air Force stationed at the, then, Fort Worth Army Air Field. He was ordered by Major General Clements McMullen (Deputy Commander of the Strategic Air Command) to inquire about the material at Roswell. DuBose was ordered to send the material to McMullen, who, in turn, forwarded it to Nathan F. Twining at the Air Material Command.

VALENTINE'S DAY ARTICLES

THE LEGENDS OF LOVE  by Deanna Jaxine Stinson. Valentine’s day this year is going to be on a Full Moon. Although the Americanized date picked out to celebrate love might not have much to do with that after all but several saints who were honored and remembered on that day. The full moon is a symbol of power and on this day at its highest peak it is going to be important to remember to honor each other with respect, passion and goodwill. We can remember to value each other all year long but on this date we can recognize and acknowledge the love we have for those around us. Below, I want to share some beautiful stories of love. More...

ST. VALENTINE'S DAY by Pat Regan. The early Church was highly skilled at transforming the spiritual loyalties and traditions of the Pagan populace over to the new intolerant monotheistic credo. Elated Pagan spring festivities, relating to love and desire, came under the iron-fisted conversion remit of the sexually-repressive Church. Therefore, let us explore this matter in more detail.  More..

WHAT ARE YOU GIVING YOUR SWEETHEART FOR WEREWOLF’S DAY? by Brad Steiger . The early Christian Church fathers (circa 270 A.D.) were well aware of the popularity of a vast number of heathen gods and goddesses, as well as the dates of observation of pagan festivals, so they set about replacing as many of the entities and the holidays as possible with ecclesiastical saints and feast days. Mid-February had an ancient history of being devoted to acts of love of a far more passionate and lusty nature than the Church wished to bless, and the bishops moved as speedily as possible to claim the days of February 14 through 17 as belonging to Saint Valentine, a courageous martyr to the ties that bound couples in Christian love.  More..

UFO RELATED ARTICLES

UFOLOGY - Challenging More Clichés  by Nick Pope. In last month’s column I examined various clichés, tropes and often-repeated mantras, debunking a few myths and misconceptions, and probably upsetting a few people in the die-hard debunker and true believer camps alike. But the whole purpose of this column is to be provocative and to stimulate lively debate, so with that in mind, this month I intend to put some more claims under the microscope and see if they hold up to scrutiny. With apologies, as with last month’s column, this may make uncomfortable reading for some.  More....

THE CORRELATION BETWEEN SUNSPOT ACTIVITY AND ET VISITS by Steve Pearse. We currently have at least three indications that 2016, and the years immediately following, have the potential to bring another chance for open Contact between extraterrestrials and humanity. If world governments don’t repeat the insane mistakes they made during the 1940’s and 1950’s – a big if – and we can get a grip on our rapidly declining geopolitical situation, the door may open again for humanity to meet at least some of the Visitors we know are out there.  More...

THE UFO PHENOMENON IN SALTA, ARGENTINA - A SUBSTANTIATED STORY  by Scott Corrales. Northern Argentina has a long history of enigmas, a mysterious angle that constitutes an important part of local culture. In recent years, one mystery has repeated increasingly in the skies of Salta - UFO sightings. Reports repeat themselves, some surprising, other questionable, some of them including the so-called "encounters of the third kind". In cities or lonely places, jungles, rivers and dams, the UFO phenomenon has become gradually more frequent. Moreover, the massification of technologies able to record events of this sort give us the possibility of gaining access to a variety of accounts.  More...

JUPITER ASCENDING: A MOVIE REVIEW  by Deanna Jaxine Stinson. Jupiter Ascending is a science fiction movie with a Cinderella theme. The main actress Jupiter Jones is played by Mila Kunis. The role of her star crossed lover is played by Channing Tatum. Jupiter is an Earth born girl who lives life out as a parentless girl adopted by an astrologer who predicts incredible things for her because she has the sign of Jupiter rising in her charts at 23 degrees. Jupiter finds this hard to believe because she is a maid and cleans houses for a living, a very lowly job in America.  More...

STRANGE BROADCASTS OF UNKNOWN ORIGIN HEARD WORLDWIDE SINCE THE DISCOVERY OF RADIO  by Tony Elliott. Strange broadcasts of unknown origin and purpose have been heard worldwide since WW1 and continue today. Fairly recently, since the 1990's these broadcasts have been researched in what is known as the Conet Project which distributes recordings of the broadcasts to the public.  More...

PARALYZING UFOS AND SECRECY  by Steve Erdmann. "There are two things I know with certainty about the UFO phenomena. One is that the phenomenon is real,” says author Robert Salas, “that is, real objects of unearthly origin are visiting our airspace. My second certainty is that the phenomenon of people being abducted by sentient beings who are operating these unknown craft, is also a reality. These conclusions do not come from hypotheses, guesses, theories, or concepts that I used to convince myself of these realities. They come from my life experiences.” More...

ORFEO ANGELUCCI'S SECRETS OF THE FLYING SAUCERS – A RETURN TO THE DAYS OF THE EARLY CONTACTEES  by Sean Casteel. After covering UFOs, alien abduction and many other paranormal subjects for over 25 years, I thought I’d seen it all. But once again, publisher, editor, writer and talk show host Timothy Green Beckley has shown me just how wrong that assumption can be. Tim recently sent me a book that contains two full-length tomes by the late contactee Orfeo Angelucci combined in one volume. Though the books were originally published in the 1950s, they contain so much that is relevant and precious about UFO contact and the mortals who come under their purview for reasons they themselves do not comprehend. More...

PARANORMAL HAWAII - THE GHOST OF MADAME PELE  by Paul Dale Roberts. The cliffs of Makapu’u offer a scenic view of the eastern shores of Oahu. It is there that Madame Pele last stayed before moving on to the Big Island. People sometimes see an old lady in white hitchhiking along the highway there (as well as the Pali highway). That is the human incarnate form of Madame Pele and it is said you need to show her respect and kindness by offering her a ride. She will usually go along for the ride before disappearing into thin air. Failure to offer the ride may have serious implications. Makapu’u is also a place known for the Akua’lele (flying god). These are fireballs said in lore to be powerful conjured up spells from one who practices the ancient ways of Hawaiian sorcery. More...

          Upaya Pemerintah Genjot Cadangan Minyak RI      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Pemerintah berupaya meningkatkan cadangan minyak dan gas bumi (migas), di Indonesia dengan mempercepat penunjukan pengelola blok migas‎ yang habis masa kontraknya pada periode 2018 sampai 2021.

Wakil Menteri Energi dan Sumber Daya Mineral (ESDM) Arcandra Tahar mengatakan, saat ini cadangan minyak terbukti nasional mencapai 3,2 miliar sampai 3,3 ‎miliar barel atau hanya 0,2 persen dari total cadangan dunia.

"Jumlah itu hanya 0,2 persen dari total proven reserve dunia cuma 0,2 persen. Nah kalau kita katakan 0,2 persen itu kita adalah negara kaya minyak silahkan kita mengartikan sendiri," kata Arcandra, di Jakarta, Kamis (9/8/2018).

Menurut Arcandra, pemerintah saat ini tidak tinggal diam menghadapi kondisi cadangan minyak Indonesia yang masih terbilang kecil. Dengan menggalakkan kegiatan ekplorasi cekungan potensi migas yang belum tergarap dengan cepat.

‎"Nah untuk itu, apakah kita berdiam diri untuk 0,2 persen, tentu tidak. harus ada usaha-usaha kita agar cekungan-cekungan yang belum dieksplorasi secepatnya dilakukan dieksplorasi," tutur dia.

Selain menggalakan eksplorasi pemerintah juga mempercepat penetapan operator, blok migas yang hampir habis masa kontraknya pada periode 2018 sampai 2021. Dengan menerapkan program kontrak kerja pasti untuk menggenjot investasi dalam memproduksi migas di blok tersebut.

"Apa usaha kita?. Nah, kontrak-kontrak yang berakhir dari 2018-2021 ini, itu ada program baru yang kami tawarkan yang dinamakan form working komitmen kerja pasti yang sebelumnya belum ada. Jadi kalau ada perusahaan yang melanjutkan atau mendapatkan kontrak baru pengelolaan dari blok terminasi. Nah kita mewajibkan untuk mengajukan berapa komitmen kerja pasti yang bisa digunakan untuk menekan produksi dan juga melakukan eksplorasi di luar blok yang mereka kehendaki," papar dia.

RI Bisa Kantongi USD 2 Miliar dari Komitmen Kerja Pengelolaan Migas

Ilustrasi tambang migas (iStockPhoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Pemerintah melalui Kementerian ESDM per Agustus 2018 ini menyatakan telah menerima komitmen kerja pasti pengelolaan blok atau Wilayah kerja (WK) migas dari pihak kontraktor sebesar USD 1,1 miliar.

Kepala Satuan Kerja Khusus Pelaksana Kegiatan Usaha Hulu Minyak dan Gas Bumi (SKK Migas), Amien Sunaryadi mengatakan, angka pasti yang telah pemerintah terima hingga saat ini dari kontraktor migas adalah USD 642 juta.

"Beberapa hari lalu sudah terkumpul USD 642 juta. Kemudian minggu lalu terkumpul USD 500 juta, tapi belum tanda tangan. Jadi pada Agustus ini total sudah USD 1,1 miliar dolar," sebut dia di Mess Hall Lapangan Muara Badak, Kalimantan Timur, Rabu (8/8/2018).

Dia melanjutkan, penerimaan dana tersebut akan digunakan untuk meningkatkan produksi migas nasional jangka panjang, yakni dengan melakukan eksplorasi besar-besaran atau giant discovery sumber daya migas baru.

"Ini yang bisa dipakai untuk eksplorasi di wilayah kerja maupun di wilayah terbuka, terutama seismik. Kami yakin, itu memberikan kesempatan negara, terutama lewat eksplorasi terbuka di wilayah seismik, untuk giant discovery," ujar dia.

Lebih lanjut, dia pun menjelaskan, komitmen kerja pasti tersebut merupakan sebuah perjanjian antara pihak kontraktor dan pemerintah untuk melaksanakan eksplorasi. 

Bila janji itu tak dipenuhi pengelola hingga tenggat batas waktu, ia menambahkan, SKK Migas akan kembali menagih sesuai besaran awal dan memasukan pendapatan ke dalam kas negara.

"Kalau hasil eksplorasinya bagus, hasil eksplorasi itu bisa diusulkan untuk menjadi wilayah kerja sang kontraktor," ungkap dia.

Amien menghitung, nominal USD 1,1 miliar yang negara telah terima lewat komitmen kerja pasti itu bisa terus bertambah jika ada kontrak baru yang ditandatangani. Yakni hingga mencapai USD 2 miliar pada akhir 2018.

"Paling tidak, diharapkan sampai akhir tahun nanti terkumpul USD 2 miliar. Tapi saat ini yang sudah pasti USD 642 juta, dan masih ada USD 500 juta sudah agree tapi belum tanda tangan," ujar dia.

          Session: Gloomhaven:: Tale of Two Parties, Chapter 37 (Void Travelers, Scenario 32)       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

by EventHorizon

[Note: Tale of Two Parties is being written primarily as a way to see if the experiences of two groups playing in the same game world can create a cogent narrative and to communicate sessions between groups.

Spoilers, such as enemy types, are included but really shouldn't be relied on in your games as I'm not tracking the game while we are playing and specifics can diverge from what happened for narrative reasons. Class spoilers are below, as there are now unlocked classes in the party. The first session report of the series is here: Chapter 1]


Current Party:
o Lenka, Orchid Spellweaver
o Zellaris, Valrath Sunkeeper
o Divney, Savvas Elementalist
o The Nameless One, Orchid Doomstalker

The more distance the Void Travelers put between them and The Voice, the less inclined they were to do what it said. The first place that The Voice had told them to look was a decrepit hole in the swamps south of Gloomhaven in an area crawling with Harrowers. Divny finally prevailed on the group to do some research on The Voice in Gloomhaven to see what they were up against and Zellaris wanted to touch base with her superiors in the Pathfinders to see if they had any thoughts. After a few days in Gloomhaven though, Divny had discovered nothing and Zellaris was still waiting for an answer. Lenka and the Doomstalker had spent their time trying to raise awareness of the plight of the Orchids in the West and convincing some people to send aid. It was hard work because the majority of the Orchids in Gloomhaven were from across the ocean and didn’t see much need to help the lesser-magicked Orchids from this continent, and the non-Orchids they talked to didn’t see the situation as desperate as they did. When word finally did come to Zellaris, it was not as clear as she had wanted. The Pathfinder leaders were alarmed at the discovery of the previously unknown Voice and yet were interested to see if they could use it against the military leaders of Gloomhaven to get some advantage. So the Void Travelers were instructed to follow along for now and continue to report back. Besides, clearing out Harrowers was an ongoing interest for the Pathfinders and they saw no problems with sending the Void Travelers down to the swamps to accomplish both objectives.

As they got ready to leave Gloomhaven, Zellaris noticed that the Doomstalker was wearing a new set of armor. It was a scale mail made of dragon hide. She asked about its origins and the Orchid shrugged, “I collected skins from the drakes we fought on the mountains. Seemed a waste not to. I traded them to an armorer I knew in Gloomhaven.” Zellaris thought back to the times they had waited for the Doomstalker to finish skinning the drakes on the mountain and realized the value that they had been willing to just leave behind. “How are you familiar with this armorer when you don’t live in Gloomhaven?” The Doomstalker answered, “All Western Orchids know him. He takes exotic skins. His wares are finely-worked. We provide him with skins when possible.” Making a mental note to find that armorer, Zellaris thanked the Doomslayer and left to finish preparations.

The Lingering Swamp, south of the City of Gloomhaven, was a gloomy place with spots of tight mangrove forests separated by rivers and dead zones. No one knew why the area had grown so irregularly, but it was avoided by all but those who had an interest in disappearing and those that preyed on the desperate. The Voice’s directions led them to one of the stands of mangroves that grew tightly together. This forced the Void Travelers to abandon their boat earlier than they would have preferred. Luckily, the roots created a natural stairway up onto the land. They found a faint path and followed that as well they could. As they walked, the trees began to thin and they came to a clearing where they saw a rotten building that seemed to be oozing that rot into the surrounding area. The trees and other plants around the entrance looked as forlorn as the building itself. The Voice had warned them that it contained a group of highly territorial and aggressive Harrowers. So forewarned, they readied themselves and kicked down the door.

The dreariness of the outside made it easy for their eyes to adjust to the room they entered. But that didn’t make the sight of the snakes, annoyed at being disturbed, any more welcome. The snakes rushed the intruders as the Doomstalker moved to the front and shot some. The snakes shied away from attacking the drakescale armor and that hesitation allowed Zellaris and the others to move in and kill them. They looked around and saw a Harrower looming out of the shadows, moving towards them. In addition, there were some odd, one-eyed tentacled things in the corner that had turned to look at them. The Doomstalker shifted to shoot the tentacled things while the other three braced to meet the Harrower. Unlike the more civilized Harrowers that lived in Glomhaven, this one didn’t appear to be able to talk and had a harder time maintaining a humanoid shape. A lightning bolt from Divny caused it to flatten against the floor and adopt a crab-like shape. It flowed towards them and a bright bolt from Zellaris caused it to shrink back and start to smoke. Divny channeled that light into a magical ball that fried the Harrower, eliminating it. They turned back to the tentacle Terrors and saw that the Doomstalker had dealt with them. They had a difficult time seeing with arrows in their eye and finishing them off was quick.

Alone in the entry, they noticed for the first time two doors leading out of the room. One appeared to lead into a courtyard and the other deeper into the house. After a brief discussion, the Void Travelers decided to stay in the house and avoid the open space of the courtyard. Lenka felt confident to move forward to go into the other room, but that confidence was misplaced. As soon as she opened the door, she was attacked by Harrowers and Black Imps, the latter sending painful hexes at her. The others called out to her to fall back into the room. In pain, she complied and stumbled backwards. Harrowers streamed out of the doorway and the group retreated. Lenka composed herself to send a stream of earth magic at the line of Harrowers, temporarily slowing them down. A barrage of arrows from the Doomstalker cut down some while Zellaris moved forward to her natural point position and cut her way into the room. But as she entered the room, she found herself surrounded and pressed by Imps. She hunkered down behind her shield and prepared for the onslaught but was unprepared when the Doomstalker vaulted over her and planted himself in the midst of the imps. His new armor oddly appeared impervious to the poisonous attacks and the Orchid met every attack with an arrow returned at the attacker. The imps fell back at the ferocity of the attack and the damage done by the Doomstalker made it easy for the others to finish off the imps.

The room’s exit led deeper into the rotting structure. Divny and the Doomstalker led the way and paused at the door at the end of a hallway to let the others catch up before pushing it open. The filth of the room was only surpassed by the filth of its inhabitants. Led by two giant Harrowers, a horde of Black Imps and Vipers pressed forward to attack the intruders. Divny shot out lightning, trying unsuccessfully to slow their advance. One of the Harrowers lashed out at the Doomstalker, driving him back into the hall. Divny also fell back in the face of the onslaught and ran into Lenka, who was advancing with a resolute look on her face. As the Savvas watched, she started glowing with a faint blue glow as she walked forward. At the doorway, Lenka raised her hands and from them shot a chilling beam of magic. It consumed the two Harrowers and continued eating through the room, taking out an imp and snake as well. The beam stopped and Lenka stood at the door, anger now flashing in her eyes. Then she took a breath, lifted her hands, and released a maelstrom of fire that consumed the room and everything in it. The damp wood of the room took a little bit to light, but it was soon burning as Lenka stalked from the inferno. “We should go now,” she said to the others, and continued out without looking back. Zellaris took a breath and dove into the room, emerging after a couple seconds with the small earthen pot that The Voice had sent them for. Cradling it in her hands, she followed the retreat of the other three as the shabby hovel burned behind them.

Standing in the clearing, watching the building burn, the group suddenly heard The Voice in their mind, “Yes! Good! The Infesters were only the first of the guardians that were employed to block my passage. Here is the second location. Go get all the vessels and I will reward you greatly!” As its presence faded, a Savvas fort in the mountains flashed through their minds. Divny started, “This being wants us to invade The Armory. That’s insanity!” Zellaris looked at the Elementalist and shook her head, “What have we done?”

[o]Results: Victory, no exhaustions
This was a challenge and would have been worse if we had a melee-heavy party. It was also our first Level 4 scenario. The curses were a challenge and made attacking more difficult than normal. That said, the Level 9 Spellweaver was a powerhouse and prevented things from really being close. Inferno leveled rooms and the Doomstalker made good use of the ranged Retaliate to kill multiple Imps. Doomstalker comfort has been increasing and the Elementalist is getting better too so our party is getting back to peak efficiency.[/o]

          Disneyland Paris celebrates a monstrously crazy Halloween & 90 years of Fun      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
inline imageTo celebrate 90 years of Mickey, Disneyland Paris is organising a huge birthday bash with a very special programme. The kick-off whistle for this "Mickey 90 Mouse Party" will be blown on 1st October, with a new Halloween season that will put the spotlight on the most famous mouse in the history of animation.

This year, Halloween promises to be a wickedly wonderful party and will also celebrate Mickey himself. He will steal the show with a brand-new float designed especially for him in the mini Halloween parade, a new attraction called "Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra" will make its appearance at Discoveryland, and of course Halloween wouldn't be the same without the "Disney Villains". Get ready to shiver with some unparalleled encounters and a spectacular show this Halloween at Disneyland Paris...

Mickey's Halloween Cavalcade
Mickey's Halloween Cavalcade, the most eagerly awaited parade of the season, is finally back with a bespoke addition: a brand-new float called "Mickey's Illusion Manor". The float will celebrate 90 years of imagination in the most mischievous of ways, with apparitions and disappearances... Yes, Mickey can't wait to play some tricks on you. What's more, he'll also have help from some strange zombies and the three pranksters Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Scrooge's nephews. No reason to panic though, as Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Chip and Dale, the Three Little Pigs, and many others will parade in their own floats, which will all exude cheerfulness and autumn colours.

New attraction: "Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra"*
The "Mickey 90 Mouse Party" will mark the arrival, on 1st October 2018, of a brand-new attraction: "Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra". Get ready to enjoy a new 4D experience at the Discoveryland Theatre. Once seated, you will find Mickey and Donald on the big screen. They will cast you into the very heart of some of the greatest Disney classics such as Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King, with new misadventures caused by the out-of-control Donald Duck. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have fun with Disney's most popular songs and to celebrate 90 years of Mickey in style.
*The attraction "Mickey and his PhilharMagic Orchestra" will remain open after the Halloween season

Face to face with the Disney Villains
Halloween is the season of all possibilities, especially for those who are dying to mingle with the most famous of Disney Villains. The terrifying Maleficent will cast a spell to transform the courtyard of Sleeping Beauty Castle into a huge briar bush taking the shape of her ominous dragon, and she will also be on-hand to meet with and take photos with the more daring of guests.

Disney Villains invite you to their show "It's Good to be Bad with the Disney Villains!" at the Castle Theatre. Join the Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cruella (101 Dalmatians), Captain Hook (Peter Pan), the Queen of Hearts (Alice in Wonderland), Jafar (Aladdin), Gaston (Beauty and the Beast), Frollo (The Hunchback of Notre-Dame), Dr Facilier (The Princess and the Frog), and also Cinderella's stepsisters and stepmother, Drizella, Anastasia, and Lady Tremaine, for this not-to-be-missed show. Look out for intruder Donald, who dresses up as Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty) so that he can party with the Disney Villains. After the show, the Disney Villains will take malicious delight in posing for photos with you.

Even more encounters with Halloween stars
The Disney Villains aren't the one ones preparing to invade Disneyland Park to celebrate their favourite season. Minnie, Stitch, Goofy, Jose Carioca and Panchito Pistoles (Donald's partners in crime in the film The Three Caballeros) and even the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland promise new unforgettable encounters. A word of advice: don't forget to grab the programme and map at the entrance to the Disney Parks to make sure you don't miss anything.

In celebration of the Halloween season, a monstrously crazy and colourful atmosphere will take over Disneyland Park. Ghosts and pumpkins will invade Main Street, U.S.A., as well as Frontierland. Colourful, tall sculptures will also have their place at the heart of the festivities, and throughout the season you will be able to encounter the puppet of Miguel, the star of the Disney/Pixar film Coco, at the Fuente del Oro restaurant.

The Halloween season takes place from 1st October to 4th November 2018. The "Mickey 90 Mouse Party" will be followed by a new Christmas season, full of surprises.

: "Creo que a veces podemos estar en desacuerdo con los hechos".
Consejera de Trump, Kellyanne Conway

"Ahora nos hemos hundido en una profundidad en la que la reafirmación de lo obvio es el primer deber de los hombres inteligentes".
-George Orwell


Las falsas verdades se han convertido en un tema común de discusión desde que Trump llego a la presidencia de USA, sin embargo todos aquellos que vivimos o hemos vividos en regímenes autoritarios, en especial los socialistas llevamos años o décadas viviendo con ellas.
 Para nosotros estar en desacuerdo con los hechos, no es algo novedoso, es la manera como vivimos el día a día, impuestos desde el gobierno.
 ¿Pero acaso las personas que viven bajo gobiernos más liberales están exentos de ello? O ¿no tienen falsas creencias?
 En un estudio de Pew Research Center para la AAS para evaluar las creencias de las personas contra la del público en general produjo resultados asombrosos, por lo menos en algunos en algunos temas:
Alimentos genéticamente modificados: el 88 por ciento de los científicos dice que es "generalmente seguro" comer; solo el 37 % público está de acuerdo.
Vacunas: el 86 por ciento de los científicos cree que deberían necesitarse en la infancia, en comparación con el 68 por ciento del público.
Cambio climático: el 94 por ciento de los científicos dice que es un problema "muy serio" o "algo serio", el 65 por ciento de la opinión pública está de acuerdo, el 87 por ciento de los científicos culpan a los humanos, el 50 por ciento del público también.
Evolución: el98 por ciento de los científicos dicen que creen que los humanos evolucionaron con el tiempo, en comparación con el 65 por ciento del público.
Alimentos cultivados con pesticidas: científicos: 68% creen que no son dañinos, público: 28 %
 Población mundial será un problema: científicos: 82% creen que si lo será, público: 59%.
Algunas de esas creencias del público las mantienen por motivos religiosos, como la evolución y otras por razones ideológicas, como el cambio climático y el tercer factor debido a que le es más fácil mantener esa creencia para no salirse del grupo.


 Esto no solo se debe a falta de conocimientos científicos, algunos científicos están contra las vacunas uno de los más famosos es  la Dra. Amy Farrah Fowler. Por otra parte los científicos que trabajan para el instituto Discovery, no creen en la evolución
 Ciertamente como lo señala el estudio para la AAS la falta de compresión de la ciencia es un grave problema, incluso en el grueso de las personas que creen en la evolución o en el cambio climático antropogenico, no lo pueden explicar, creo que muy pocos, ya que estamos inmerso en información y todos los días debemos de elegir en las cosas que debemos creer, y desechamos la información que no está de acuerdo con nuestras creencias como irrelevante, falsa o menos creíble, ya que la sociedad nos obliga a que tengamos convicciones, no tenerlas en un síntoma de ser una persona débil y fácil de sugestionar, el problema con las personas que tienen convicciones es que si le dices que no estás de acuerdo, se van. Aunque le muestre hechos o cifras, cuestionan tus fuentes. Apelen a la lógica y no ve el punto.
 Ya que esas convicciones son parte de su personalidad y si las cuestionan, estas cuestionando su propio ego, y luego de la discusión saldrán más convencidos que tienen la razón.


 Lo anterior es muy frecuente con las personas que siguen la ideología marxista. El solo hecho de cuestionarla, los convence más que están en lo cierto.
 En la Venezuela actual con una alta tasa de enfermedades epidémicas, sin medicamentos, sin alimentos o a precios impagables para las grandes mayorías, una inflación record en el mundo y un gobierno salvaje y autoritario de corte socialista, cuando se les dice que esos males son el producto directo de esa ideología, enseguida lo refutan con la manida frase “Esto no es el verdadero socialismo” ya que no pueden ocultarse de los hechos ni los pueden refutar.
 El mismo candidato de la izquierda en Colombia, Petro dijo, que lo que existía en Venezuela no era socialismo, sin decir que todos los gobiernos socialistas que han llegado al poder han tenido el mismo resultado, a excepción donde no pudieron destruir las instituciones públicas, tales como en Brasil de Lula.
 Y no lo pueden admitir ya que si aceptaran que su ideología fracasa, significaría el fracaso de ellos mismos como personas.
 Igual se puede aplicar a los que creen en religiones, aceptar la evolución implica que la Biblia está equivocada, y como ellos creen en la biblia y, es parte de sus vidas, implicaría que su vida es un error.
Para evitar la duplicación ante la evidencia conflictiva, una forma de reducir la incomodidad de la disonancia cognoscitiva, es evitando o no oyendo las afirmaciones que contradigan sus creencias.

Lo cual es parte de un conjunto de conductas conocidas en la literatura psicológica como "razonamiento motivado". El razonamiento motivado es cómo las personas se convencen a sí mismas o permanecen convencidas de qué quieren creer: buscan información agradable y la quieren creer, y evitan, ignoran, devalúan, u olvidan o argumentan en contra de la información que contradice sus creencias.
 Algo similar como en Facebook donde eliges leer lo que refuerzas tus creencias y ocultas todas aquella que la contradicen, esa exposición selectiva no solo se aplica su comportamiento en la red si no que pasa a los programas de radio y tv que consumen y llega a las amistades que pueden tener  o con las personas que pueden socializar.
 Todos aquellos que no tengan la misma idea sobre el mundo, son personas desagradables, ya que crean la incomodidad de la disonancia cognoscitiva.
 Eso me ha sucedido en el contexto de la polarización extrema que se da en el país, ya que soy rechazado tanto por los grupos pro marxistas al igual que los grupos Liberales, y por lo tanto ,mi circulo social a disminuido, ya que atentó contra su exposición selectiva, solo por ser crítico.
 Pero eso lleva a las personas a estar de acuerdo con Conway "Creo que a veces podemos estar en desacuerdo con los hechos".
 Esa frase es la máxima expresión de la selección selectiva, y muchas personas que  la critican, hacen lo mismo que ella, quizás su mayor logro fue no ser hipócrita y definir de manera clara, quizás demasiado cruda, la manera cómo piensa la mayoría, incluso la mayoría de quienes la critican por decir esa frase.
“Toda esa evidencia sobre el calentamiento global esta sesgada y no tiene sentidodiscutirla
 (Sin impórtales que el 94% de los expertos digan lo contrario)
Los alimentos transgénico son un veneno para el cuerpo y deben ser prohibido”
(No importa que casi todos los expertos en el tema estén en desacuerdo)
“La teoría de la evolución es un cuento de los ateos”
(El 98% de los científicos deben de estar equivocados)
“…podemos estar en descuerdo con los hechos.”
 Lee McIntyre  los expuso claramente cuando dijo; "El verdadero enemigo de la verdad no es la ignorancia, la duda o incluso la incredulidad. Es el conocimiento falso". El es uno de los filósofos que han tratado de enmendarle la tarea, a los filósofos postmodernistas, los verdaderos culpables de darle sustento ideológicos a la post verdad, uno de ellos, Derrida, cuando afirmo que no existe tal cosa como  “verdad objetiva”  y que la experiencia de género y culturales además de lo político influyen en lo que es un hecho. De ahí a decir que podemos escoger los hechos que queremos creer, es muy corta
 Esto a pesar de todo no es un fenómeno que apareció ayer, casi desde que tenemos registros escritos podemos ver post verdades, aun en los mismos científicos, mi ejemplo favorito es el de los cromosomas humanos, cuando por primera vez a principios del siglo un científico con mucho prestigio los conto y vio 48 cromosomas, luego por más de 50 años miles de genetistas los vieron y siempre creyeron que eran 48, todos ellos sabían sumar y les dio el mismo resultado; 48, hasta tomaron fotos de ellos. Hasta que a finales de los años 50 vino un estudiante graduado y los conto, sumo 46, sorprendido pensó que estaba equivocado y busco en fotos antiguas y si, efectivamente eran 46.
 Este es un ejemplo de la ignorancia deliberada, para no poner en duda la autoridad de alguien con prestigio.
 Entonces  ¿A qué se debe que tengamos esta propensión a engañarnos a nosotros mismos?
