          Il Milleproroghe è la rinuncia ad un futuro migliore nelle periferie      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Il Milleproroghe del governo gialloverde si è trasformato una specie di provvedimento da Robin Hood al contrario: toglie ai poveri per dare ai ricchi. Lo sblocco degli avanzi di amministrazione dei comuni virtuosi è una misura positiva, che Forza Italia e il centrodestra hanno sempre sostenuto, ma è paradossale che venga realizzata bloccando il piano periferie da 2,1 miliardi, che viene congelato per almeno due anni. Nella sola Scampia si rischia il blocco dei 26,9 milioni di investimenti destinati all'abbattimento di tre Vele e alla riqualificazione di una quarta, ma problemi simili si avrebbero a Corviale (Roma), nella periferia di Torino, nell'hinterland milanese, a Messina, Salerno, Cosenza e decine di altre periferie italiane.

Anche la retorica che il governo sta provando a usare per giustificare il provvedimento - una fantomatica "meritocrazia" che premia i virtuosi e penalizza chi non saprebbe spendere le risorse programmate - è smentita dai fatti. Molti dei progetti che il Milleproroghe congela sono in stato di avanzamento, con soldi già impegnati e progetti esecutivi già elaborati. Si rischia il danno erariale e si rischiano probabilmente penali per i comuni nei confronti dei fornitori: un po' quel che sta avvenendo con la Tav, dove lo Stato italiano rischia di pagare a caro prezzo il malgoverno di Di Maio e compagni.

Contrapporre i comuni virtuosi alle periferie urbane è puro classismo, altro che meritocrazia. Un partito che ha raccolto il proprio consenso sul fantomatico "reddito di cittadinanza" sta dimostrando tutta la sua distanza dai problemi reali del Paese: concentrati sulla propria ideologia da sessantottini in ritardo, pensano di liquidare la sfida dell'emancipazione sociale ed economica delle periferie urbane italiane promettendo soldi per non lavorare, anziché immaginare piani e progetti di sviluppo concreto, di riqualificazione e di rilancio. Per una realtà come Scampia, in particolare, questo approccio è offensivo; è la rinuncia a voler costruire un futuro migliore, in cambio della "promessa" di un presente da sudditi.


          Casaleggio a ItaliaOggi: "La rivoluzione tecnologica a cui penso deve partire dalla scuola"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

"Il nostro Paese è ancora legato a modelli 'tradizionali' a tutti i livelli. Il nostro sistema produttivo è fondato sulle piccole e medie imprese che faticano ad accedere alle nuove opportunità offerte dall'evoluzione tecnologica per una questione di costi ma anche di cultura. E' necessario immaginare fin da ora un serio piano di investimenti per l'innovazione, razionalizzando le risorse che pure esistono ma sono parcellizzate in mille bandi locali, regionali, di settore... senza un vero progetto complessivo che invece è necessario, fondamentale e non più prorogabile". Lo dice Davide Casaleggio in una lunga intervista concessa al quotidiano ItaliaOggi in cui concentra attenzione sullo sviluppo del digitale, dell'intelligenza artificiale e della blockchain.

Secondo il presidente dell'Associazione Rousseau, si dovrebbe partire "dai settori dove l'innovazione digitale può avere un ruolo strategico come l'alimentare e la moda". In questo senso anche l'Europa deve avere un ruolo, secondo Casaleggio:

L'Europa deve senza dubbio avere un ruolo fondamentale in questo processo di cambiamento favorendo gli investimenti in innovazione e tecnologia attraverso una strategia complessima di sostegno alle imprese e agli stati membri che vogliono andare in questa direzione". [..] E' indispensabile che anche alivello europeo vengano previste forme di incentivi per le politiche di sostegno al reddito e a questo proposito il provvedimento approvato lo scorso novembre dal Parlamento Europeo per spronare la Commissione a legiferare va nella direzione giusta

Secondo Casaleggio è assolutamente necessario "riuscire a immaginare quali saranno le esigenze occupazionali dei prossimi 20 anni e di conseguenza cominciare oggi a pensare a percorsi di formazione scolastica e di aggiornamento continuo per adulti è fondamentale. Nel frattempo, è fondamentale immaginare nuovi modelli di welfare e prevedere misure di sostegno al reddito per accompagnare" la fase di cambiamento. In questo scenario, dice a ItaliaOggi, è centrale il ruolo della politica, che:

Deve assumersi la responsabilità di guidare il Paese attraverso questo cambiamento [..] e prevedere un sistema di investimento a sostegno dell'innovazione, incentivare le attività di ricerca e sviluppo portandole a livello svedese che investe tre volte tanto rispetto all'Italia, e prevedere misure di supporto all'elaborazione di nuove soluzioni e servizi ad alto valore tecnologico, prevedere sostanziali sgravi fiscali per le imprese che investono in innovazione

China’s retaliatory tariffs are no good for Washington farmers: The farmers are anxious. More than $480 million worth of Washington agricultural exports are impacted by Chinese tariffs, reports KING 5. China struck back against Trump’s latest tariffs. It slapped $16 million of tariffs on American goods.

New Yorker sued by WA AG for fake charities: This guy, a New York stockbroker, is heavily involved with organized crime. He’s being sued by Washington State attorney general Bob Ferguson for setting up six fake charities. He’s allegedly done this same thing in eight other states. He hasn’t been charged criminally in Washington State, reports the Seattle Times.

What the fuck is going on between Canada and Saudi Arabia? Good question, glad you asked. The two are in some sort of a human-rights tiff. Canada’s ambassador rebuked Saudi Arabia for arresting human-rights and women’s-rights activists. Saudi Arabia clapped back immediately and expelled the ambassador, giving him 24 hours to get his ugly, yella, no-good keister off its property. Then, Saudi Arabia announced it was canceling all flights to and from Toronto. Now it’s barring all of its citizens from receiving treatment in Canadian hospitals. Saudi Arabia has put Canada’s human-rights policies on blast. Meanwhile, they executed a man by crucifixion today. The worst part? The United States says it’s caught in the middle of this quarrel between its two allies. Doesn’t seem like too hard of a choice here, America.

Durkan loves the Showbox too! But will she act? She’s sending representatives to talk with a real-estate developer about the future of the venue today.

This extension would include other businesses other than the Showbox, such as a restaurant and a strip club.

Attack the fire from the air: Washington firefighting crews are finding quick successes by utilizing aircraft. According to the Washington Department of Natural Resources, there have been 830 fires so far on the land it oversees. A typical fire season averages 817 fires, according to KING 5. Crews have been knocking out these fires with their “Huey Helicopters, along with eight single-engine Fire Boss aircraft.”

Election night breakdown: What do you mean you weren’t keeping up with SECB all night? Yeah, there’s a lot to read, but we had a lot to say. The short list: We got banned from the GOP election night party (but then got let in), Dino Rossi won, Joey Gibson lost, the Washington version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t manage to make it through to the next round, and we had to listen to Coldplay on our Uber ride home. There’s probably more. Why don’t you take the morning and catch up?

Election nights outside Washington: It’s still too close to call in the Kansas Republican Primary — a mere 191 votes separate the candidates. This is why voting matters! The Ohio special election is also too close to call. The Republican candidate, Troy Balderson, had a lead of 1,754 votes as of this morning but there are still more than 3,000 ballots yet to be counted. It’s heated!

The Seattle Times write-up about the Automated Fingerprint Identification System levy omits one small detail: That it isn’t just about fingerprint identification. Nah, sorry, voters ignorantly (an assumption) voted to give the Seattle Police Department facial recognition technology. Everything will be fine, right? The police having a database full of our scanned faces can’t possibly be bad… can it?

Don’t get my hopes up, National Weather Service: I am currently sweating in a Capitol Hill Starbucks. It isn’t even 6:30 a.m. yet. Someone was already arrested in here this morning. That’s not about the heat, but it’s been a day already. The good news is that there’s apparently a significant cool down on the way. Maybe even light showers? I won’t believe it until I see it.


But... it's not the end of the week yet, is it? Beat the hump day slump, beat the heat.

Amazon continues to thrive off our thirst for convenience: It’s steadily introducing drive-up grocery pick-up at Whole Foods locations.

Additionally, only Prime Now members will be saved in the Rapture.

New York Republican charged with insider trading: Representative Chris Collins, an outspoken Trump supporter, is having a rough day. Looks like there may be another seat open for the blue wave to scoop up.


Everyone bands together to ban Alex Jones — except Twitter: Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO, says Alex Jones, notorious conspiracy theorist and flagrant asshole, hasn’t violated Twitter’s rules. YouTube, Facebook, Spotify, and Apple have already banned Jones. This just confirms that Twitter truly is the cesspool we love to hate and cannot bear to stop using.

Maryland man goes to take driving test, forgets about all the drug-dealing paraphernalia in the car: The man, 22, was just trying to get his driver’s license.

He also forgot about the loaded Glock and the $15,000 in drug-related money. He didn’t get his license. He did get arrested, though.

First, he forgot about owning millions of dollars' worth of bitcoin. Then he bragged about it. Now, 50 Cent, who is filing for bankruptcy, says he never owned any of the digital currency after all. As NPR's Bill Chappell reported last month , the rapper, whose given name is Curtis Jackson, acknowledged in a 2014 Reddit discussion that he had accepted bitcoin in partial payment for his Animal Ambition album. A TMZ report subsequently reported an estimate of the amount he received was about 700 bitcoins. At the time, individual units of the volatile cryptocurrency would have been worth a few hundred dollars each, but today, bitcoin is valued at around $10,000. In a (since deleted) Instagram post in January, the rapper bragged about his discovered windfall, saying he "forgot" that he had owned it. However, in a bankruptcy filing late last week , lawyers for the artist told the court that the recent media reports "falsely stated" that he owned any bitcoin at all. "[The] Debtor has never

NUOVO MITO DEL BUON PARASSITA


Dal Buon Selvaggio al Buon Parassita. Campi rom abusivi? Grazie ai cattolici “sinistri” e al loro patrono, il signore argentino che siede indegnamente sulla cattedra di San Pietro ecco che la saga del Buon Selvaggio si accresce 
di Francesco Lamendola  

 http://www.accademianuovaitalia.it/images/gif/0-frusta-del-700-simpatico.gif  

Il mito del Buon Selvaggio è stato partorito dal cervello bacato dei philosophes del tardo XVIII secolo e fa da ponte tra illuminismo e romanticismo, il che vuol dire che è entrato di diritto fra gli elementi centrali e qualificanti della cultura moderna, in cui si è vittoriosamente insediato e dalla quale non è stato più sloggiato, né con le buone, né con le cattive. È stato creato in buona parte con materiali da risulta e specialmente con l’idea di Rousseau che l’uomo è buono finché la civiltà non lo guasta, ragion per cui il ginevrino ha scritto il suo famoso trattato pedagogico, l’Emilio, in cui teorizza che l’ideale sarebbe educare un bambino lontano dalla civiltà, e solo quando gli sono stati inoculati gli anticorpi ed è un po’ cresciuto, gli si può permettere di andare a vivere in mezzo al frastuono dei suoi simili. 

In questa idea entra parecchio anche il nascente senso di colpa per ciò che gli europei facevano nel corso delle loro conquiste coloniali: mano a mano che si consolidavano gli imperi, soprattutto quelli sostanzialmente “virtuosi” della Francia e soprattutto della Gran Bretagna (mentre quelli iberici, e specialmente quello spagnolo, erano il Male per eccellenza, forse perché troppo esplicitamente cattolici), i philosophes sentivano il bisogno di esorcizzare il rimorso per i genocidi, le spoliazioni e il fiorente commercio degli schiavi (la tratta atlantica) inventandosi l’immagine di un uomo primitivo tutto bontà, gentilezza e delicatezza, tutto onestà e innocenza, e perfino pudore e continenza. Si vedano i romanzi René e Atala di François René de Chateaubriand, che pure non era uno stupido né un mediocre scrittore, a differenza di Bernardin de Saint Pierre e del suo zuccheroso e insulso Paolo e Virginia: quando si dice la potenza del condizionamento culturale.

Grazie ai cattolici “sinistri” e al loro patrono, il signore argentino che siede indegnamente sulla cattedra di San Pietro ecco che la saga del "Buon Selvaggio" si accresce del "Buon Parassita".

Ora, sia il senso di colpa, sia l’idealizzazione del primitivo, hanno messo radici al punto che, oggi, sono divenuti parte essenziale della cultura politically correct. Che qualcuno si provi, per esempio, a ricordare che le società dell’America precolombiana non erano dei paradisi di bontà, mitezza e tolleranza, e che i sacrifici umani praticati su larghissima scala erano il loro pane quotidiano: subito scatteranno in piedi dieci, cento signori del politicamente corretto, e cominceranno ad abbaiare: e che, si vuol forse riabilitare i conquistadores spagnoli e la santa Inquisizione? Oppure, che qualcuno osi ricordare il cannibalismo dei maori, i quali mettevano in pentola i navigatori europei dopo averli blanditi e circuiti con mille moine e gentilezze: ecco che i cani da guardia dell’ortodossia culturale si metteranno a ringhiare che è inaudito, che si vuol far passare i carnefici (europei) per vittime, e le vittime (i buoni selvaggi) per carnefici: un indegno capovolgimento storico e morale. Se, poi, per caso, qualcuno osa ricordare che la schiavitù dei negri era praticata su scala industriale anche dagli arabi; o che gli Stati africani indipendenti sorti dal crollo del colonialismo hanno mostrato quali fossero le attitudini di quei popoli a vivere in pace e armonia fra di loro; se qualcuno, per esempio, si permette di citare un film come Africa addio, di Jacopetti e Prosperi (che non è affatto un inno al colonialismo o al razzismo, ma semplicemente una denuncia di quel che è accaduto in Africa quando il colonialismo è finito), certamente quei signori si stracceranno le vesti ed esclameranno, con la bava alla bocca (perché somigliano moltissimo, nella loro ipocrisia, ad Anna e Caifa e ai farisei del Sinedrio: Basta! Qui si pretende di riscrivere la storia in senso eurocentrico e razzista! Qui si vuol riabilitare il fascismo! (il fascismo c’entra sempre, è durato solo vent’anni ma da ottanta serve quale testa di turco per tutte le anime belle desiderose di sfogare la loro sacra indignazione: il che dimostra che, se non ci fosse stato, qualcuno se lo sarebbe dovuto inventare, altrimenti di che cosa camperebbero i Martina, i Delrio, i Grasso, le Boldrini, eccetera, eccetera?); ma noi non lo permetteremo. Noi li conosciamo, questi revisionisti, questi xenofobi travestiti da storici, questi populisti che si spacciano per studiosi obiettivi, e non gliela faremo passare liscia! Detto, fatto: in Europa, un parlamento dopo l’altro ha approvato leggi liberticide che prevedono la prigione per quanti osano incrinare i dogmi del politicamente corretto; e le terribili imputazioni di incitamento all’odio razziale, di razzismo e antisemitismo, pendono come una spada di Damocle su chiunque si permetta di entrare nel recinto riservato e monopolizzato dalla cultura progressista e di sinistra, e, più di recente, da quella cattolica progressista e di sinistra: vedi i Melloni, i Riccardi, e, da ultimo, i Cardini, che uniscono un amore smisurato e veramente commovente per gli ultimi, i diversi, i ”più deboli” (anche se poi non sono tali)  ad un astio, un’acredine, una insofferenza quasi patologica per quanti non condividono le loro opinioni, specialmente a proposito dell’atteggiamento da tenere verso i cosiddetti migranti e, quindi, il giudizio che essi danno, nella loro infallibilità e sovrana bontà (perché sono i Buoni per antonomasia) sul pontificato del signor Bergoglio.

Mito del "Buon selvaggio" e l'albino africano: paradigma silenziato di un fallimento del politically correct. 

Alla voce buon selvaggio, ecco cosa dice, per esempio, Wikipedia:
“Buon selvaggio” è la denominazione di un mito basato sulla convinzione che l'uomo in origine fosse un "animale" buono e pacifico e che solo successivamente, corrotto dalla società e dal progresso, diventasse malvagio. Nella cultura del Primitivismo del XVIII secolo, il "buon selvaggio" era considerato più lodevole, più autenticamente nobile dei prodotti dell'educazione civilizzata. Nonostante l'espressione "buon selvaggio" fosse già comparsa nel 1672 in La conquista di Granada di John Dryden (1672), la rappresentazione idealizzata di un "gentiluomo della natura" fu un aspetto caratteristico del Sentimentalismo del secolo successivo. Il concetto di "buon selvaggio" si rifà a un'idea di umanità sgombra dalla civiltà: la normale essenza di uomo senza impedimenti. Poiché tale concetto incarna la convinzione che senza i freni della civilizzazione gli uomini siano essenzialmente buoni, le sue fondamenta giacciono nella dottrina della bontà degli esseri umani, espressa nel primo decennio del Settecento da Anthony Shaftesbury, che incitava un aspirante autore “a cercare quella semplicità dei modi, e quel comportamento innocente, che era spesso noto ai meri selvaggi; prima che essi fossero corrotti dai nostri commerci” (Advice to an Author, Part III). La sua opposizione alla dottrina del peccato originale, figlia dell'atmosfera ottimistica dell'Umanesimo rinascimentale, venne raccolta da un suo coevo, il saggista Richard Steele, che attribuiva la corruzione dei comportamenti contemporanei a un'educazione falsa. Il concetto di buon selvaggio ha connessioni speciali in particolare con il Romanticismo e con la filosofia romantica e illuminista di Jean-Jacques Rousseau. (…) L'idea del "buon selvaggio" può essere servita, in parte, come tentativo di ristabilire il valore degli stili di vita indigeni e delegittimare gli eccessi imperialistici, definendo gli uomini "esotici" come moralmente superiori, in modo da controbilanciare le inferiorità politiche ed economiche percepite.

Come si vede, si tratta di un mare magnum nel quale c’è posto per tutti, purché non siano europei e purché non siano cristiani, specialmente cattolici: da Pocahontas a Che Guevara, da Ho Chi Min alla ragazza dalla pelle di luna del film omonimo, che poi sarebbe Zeudi Araya, e da Tippu Tib ai falsi lama tibetani inventati da Lobsang Rampa, al secolo Cyril Henry Hoskin, figlio di un idraulico del Devon, che in Asia non è mai stato, ma in compenso ha venduto più libri sul Tibet di tutti i veri lama tibetani messi insieme. Ora, però, grazie appunto ai cattolici “sinistri”, e specialmente al loro grande capo, patrono e ispiratore, il signore argentino che siede, indegnamente, sulla cattedra di San Pietro, ecco che la saga del Buon Selvaggio, dopo quella del Buon Rivoluzionario, termine coniato a suo tempo dal sociologo venezuelano Carlos Rangel (vedi il nostro articolo: Quando L. A. De Bougainville sbarca a Tahiti e s’imbatte… nel “buon selvaggio” di Rousseau, pubblicato sul sito dell’Accademia Nuova Italia il 02/12/17), si arricchisce di una nuova puntata: quella del Buon Parassita. Il merito – si fa per dire - è tutto del quotidiano della C.E.I., L’Avvenire, del suo direttore Marco Tarquinio e del presidente della Comunità di Sant’Egidio, Marco Impagliazzo, il quale ha firmato l’editoriale (cosa che la dice lunga su quanto “pesi” nella Chiesa, oggi, la Comunità di Sant’Egidio), il quale ha ritenuto cosa buona e giusta lanciare un ulteriore, ennesimo affondo contro il ministro del’Interno, Matteo Salvini, reo, in questo caso, di voler sgombrare i campi rom abusivi di Roma e di altre parti d’Italia. Salvini, dopo un incontro con Virginia Raggi per decidere lo sgombero del campo romano denominato River Village, e mentre il presidente Mattarella, guarda caso, si produceva nell’ennesimo intervento buonista per mettere in guardia contro il razzismo e le discriminazioni contro i rom (che perfetto tempismo: un imbecille aveva sparato con un fucile ad aria compressa e ferito una bambina rom), aveva dichiarato:
Le presenze in Italia dei rom superano le 150 mila persone e sono solo circa 30 mila quelli che vivono nella illegalità nei campi, probabilmente spinti da chi ci guadagna. (…) Il problema è chi si ostina a vivere nella illegalità, questa sacca di minoranza e parassitaria, potrebbero anche essere svedesi o esquimesi. Nessuna discriminazione contro i rom, semplicemente parità di diritti e di doveri: bruciare cose con roghi tossici, non fa parte della legalità, le auto vanno assicurate, i bambini portati a scuola e va fatta la dichiarazione dei redditi.

Non è questione di razza o religione: la giustizia umana non solo non può, ma non deve perdonare, perché il suo compito è difendere gli onesti dalle violenze e dagli inganni dei disonesti.

Più che razzismo, sembrerebbero parole di buon senso; macché: non avesse mai usato l’aggettivo parassitario; a Tarquinio e a Impagliazzo quel passaggio non è proprio andato giù, è rimasto loro in gola e, per sputarlo, insieme a una buona dose di ideologia del Buon Selvaggio nella versione aggiornatissima della fine di luglio 2018, hanno tenuto a battesimo la nuova puntata della saga: quella del Buon Parassita. Ecco, infatti, Impagliazzo che scrive un editoriale di fuoco sul quotidiano dei vescovi, in prima pagina e col titolo a caratteri cubitali: Ma nessun uomo è mai un “parassita”:
(…) lascia perplessi il linguaggio di un importante ministro della Repubblica a proposito di una minoranza variegata presente in Italia da tempo, quella dei rom (mi si perdoni la semplificazione). Parlare, come ha fatto ieri il ministro Salvini, in sorprendente risposta a un efficace intervento del presidente Mattarella che ricordava le persecuzioni subite da questa minoranza a causa delle leggi razziste del 1938, di «30.000 persone che si ostinano a vivere nell’illegalità» definendoli «sacca parassitaria», suona pregiudiziale verso un’intera comunità, oltre che non corrispondente alla realtà. Forse ci si è dimenticati che la definizione «parassiti» nella storia del Novecento è stata utilizzata per gli ebrei, quando venivano accusati di praticare l’usura. Chi conosce la storia sa che da questa e altre definizioni si è passati a emarginare e poi considerare nemica quella minoranza con le conseguenze tragiche che sappiamo. Fosse soltanto per questo, mentre facciamo memoria degli ottant’anni delle leggi razziste, quest’espressione va bandita quando si parla di persone…

Ragionamento ammirevole e ineccepibile dal punto di vista del politically correcti nazisti definivano parassiti gli ebrei; Salvini definisce parassiti alcuni rom; dunque Salvini è un nazista e chiunque usi questo linguaggio, che lo sappia o no, sta evocando e auspicando un nuovo Olocausto. Complimenti, sia suo piano storico che su quello logico-filosofico: Aristotele sorriderebbe compiaciuto per un uso tanto abile stringente del sillogismo e del principio di non contraddizione. Da parte sua, uno dei redattori del sito Inter multiplices, una vox, L. P., ha osservato argutamente in un articolo intitolato Avvenire e il buon parassita (pubblicato all’inizio di agosto 2018):
Giorni or sono (…) l’organo stonato della CEI, se ne uscì con un commento col dire che “Nessun uomo è mai un parassita”, evidente essendo l’intento di trasformare, con un procedimento cultural - alchemico, la realtà di un’etnìa che largamente si qualifica per comportamenti exlege, in modello di efficientismo sociale ed economico. Affermare, per l’appunto, che nessun uomo è mai un parassita vuol decisamente dire che, per il fatto di “essere persona”, anche uno stile di vita, connotato da attività illecite o da abulìa  – e le prove a sostegno di sì evidente realtà sono innumeri – va riconosciuto come segno di un oggettivo valore. Ora, il gran cuore di Tarquinio, colmo di buonismo e di filantropìa, scosso da viva e agitata voglia di un’accoglienza a prescindere, non solo smentisce e rifiuta il dizionario e la storia e, nella presente contingenza di cronaca, il ministro dell’Interno on.le Matteo Salvini – colui che ha ordinato lo sgombero del campo – ma cancella l’autorità di  San Paolo il quale, in 2Ts. 3,10b – 13 così ammaestra: “ Chi non vuol lavorare, neppure mangi. Sentiamo, infatti, che alcuni di voi vivono disordinatamente, senza far nulla e in continua agitazione. A questi tali ordiniamo, esortandoli nel Signore Gesù, di mangiare il proprio pane lavorando in pace”. (…). Siamo allo stravolgimento della parola di Dio a pro’ di una zuccherosa pastorale infarcita di antropologismo a rimorchio d’una cultura – accoglienza a prescindere – che ritiene buono, onesto ogni uomo visto nella prospettiva della nuova e tossica teologìa – quella del CV2 – che impasta e molazza pelagianesimo, angelismo cartesiano, massoneria, Comunità egidiana e Georges Soros nello sfondo ideologico russoiano di una natura umana incorrotta.

Cari cattolici "sinistri": moralmente, si sa, per il cristiano ogni vita umana è preziosa, unica, “sacra”… Questo però non significa che ogni uomo abbia il diritto di vivere nel disprezzo delle leggi.

Rimandiamo alla lettura integrale dell’articolo, ripreso anche da altri siti, come Acta apostaticae Sedis, scusandoci se, per motivi di spazio, abbiamo saltato alcuni passaggi del ragionamento svolto dall’Autore. Il senso, però, è chiaro: i Tarquinio, i Galantino, i Bassetti, i Riccardi, non sono cattolici, ma seguaci di una nuova religione, la religione del Concilio Vaticano II.Quando qualcosa, nella dottrina cattolica, concorda con tale nuovissima religione, allora tutto bene; quando, invece, ci s’imbatte in qualcosa che, ahimè, non concorda, si fa finta di niente e si va oltre, senza batter ciglio, sostenendo e facendo esattamente il contrario di quel che c’è scritto nelle Scritture e che tramanda la Tradizione. L’esempio, del resto,viene dall’alto: il paragrafo 2267 del Catechismo della Chiesa cattolica, quello sulla pena di morte, non piace al signore argentino? Nessun problema: quell’articolo si cambia, così, su due piedi, con un signorile tratto di penna (signorile nel senso etimologico del termine: come facevano i signori, o i tiranni, dell’ancien régime). E chi se ne frega delle opinioni di San Tommaso d’Aquino, di Santa Caterina da Siena (la quale di condannati a morte un po’ se ne intendeva, visto che li assisteva e li accompagnava fino al patibolo, convertendoli e aiutandoli a ritornare in grazia di Dio prima dell’estremo passo, e facendo piangere di commozione e di edificazione tutta la folla) e del Magistero dei duecentosessantacinque papi venuti prima di Bergoglio.

.....
Possiamo facilmente immaginarcelo, le mani giunte, le spalle curve, in adorazione del Santissimo: una postura e un atteggiamento che sono diventati così rari, oggi, frastornati come siamo da un clero rumoroso, sin troppo affaccendato, a volte sopra le righe e perfino sguaiato, che veste in maniera discutibile, con sciarpe arcobaleno che alludono alla simpatia per i movimenti omosessuali, sempre pronti a twittare, a pontificare sui blog, a rilasciare interviste, a presentarsi alla radio e alla televisione per parlare di tutto e di più, tranne che di cose dello spirito. Ne abbiamo fin sopra le tasche di questi vescovi e preti che si autodefiniscono di strada, quasi civettando con l’idea del mestiere più antico del mondo, e della loro continua, fastidiosa, immodesta esibizione di solidarietà con gli “ultimi”. Padre Scrosoppi, e con lui tanti altro santi “sociali” del XIX secolo,  Giuseppe Cafasso, Giovanni Bosco, e suore come Francesca Cabrini, forse che si tiravano indietro, quando c’era da aiutare il prossimi, gli ultimi, i più diseredati? Ma se hanno dedicato a loro tutta la loro vita! Però non erano loro ad abbassare il cristianesimo al livello della strada; loro innalzavano le cose della strada alle altezze del cristianesimo. Avevano una fortissima carica di spiritualità, e nella preghiera, nella meditazione, nel digiuno, trovavano la forza per amare il prossimo, senza mai indulgere alla mentalità del mondo. Forse che Giuseppe Cafasso, il santo dei condannati a morte, fece della sua vita una battaglia contro la pena capitale? Oppure si batté contro la pena di morte Santa Caterina da Siena, che assisteva i condannati e li accompagnava sino al patibolo, dopo averli convertiti e fatti pentire, al punto che essi stessi piangevamo di gioia all’idea di scontare i loro peccati sul patibolo e ricongiungersi con Dio misericordioso? I veri santi non vogliono cambiare il mondo, non vogliono cambiare le leggi, non vogliono affermare dei diritti: vogliono cambiare le anime; e danno l’esempio mostrando il cambiamento che hanno saputo operare in se stessi, con la grazia di Dio. Nessun vero santo assume le pose e gli atteggiamenti dei cosiddetti preti di strada; nessuno scaglia anatemi e maledizioni contro i politici che non gli garbano, come fa adesso il neoclero progressista contro il ministro Salvini; nessun vero santo si è mai sognato di entrare a pie’ pari nel terreno della politica, di scendere nell’agone, né di salutare con il pugno chiuso (e il sigaro in bocca), come il defunto don Gallo, né, tanto meno, di spezzare una corona del Rosario, come fece padre Turoldo per insegnare ai fedeli che ci si deve liberare delle “superstizioni” medievali. No, i veri santi non fanno così, perché sono miti e umili di cuore, come ha insegnato il loro solo, il loro unico modello: Gesù Cristo. E inoltre pregano, pregano tanto, pregano sempre, seguendo, ancora, la raccomandazione del divino Maestro. Ma questi cardinali progressisti, questi Schönborn, questi De Kesel, questi Kasper, questi Marx, questi Bassetti; questi superiori di ordini religiosi, arcivescovi e vescovi, come Sosa Abascal, come Paglia, come Galantino, come Cipolla, come Lorefice, come Perego, come Zuppi, lo trovano il tempo per pregare, fra una esternazione e l’altra, fra una intervista e l’altra, fra una iniziativa di solidarietà gay-friendly e una pro immigrazione? E il signor Bergoglio, si mette mai in ginocchio, davanti al Santissimo, le mani giunte, la fronte bassa, per incontrarsi con Dio e anche, in qualità di successore di Pietro, per dare l’esempio ai fedeli di quanto sia importante la preghiera? Lo si vede mai partecipare all’adorazione perpetua, o raccomandarne la pratica, o spendere qualche parola, nel fiume di discorsi profani, o semi-eretici, sempre provocatori, qualche volta blasfemi, nei quali parla di tutto, per raccomandare ai cattolici di pregare, di recitare il Rosario, di adorare il Santissimo?

0 I Santi di sempre padre Luigi Scrosoppi
I Santi di sempre: padre Luigi Scrosoppi.

E se qualche cattolico progressista ci viene a dire che i personaggi che abbiamo citato sono i santi di oggi, perché hanno messo i poveri al centro di ogni cosa, noi rispondiamo che i santi di ieri, e i santi di sempre, facevano questo e quello: operavano instancabilmente per i poveri (ma senza cercare la pubblicità davanti alle telecamere, senza mettersi continuamente in mostra) e intanto pregavano, digiunavano e adoravano il Signore. Anzi: pregavano, digiunavano e adoravano, e ciò li metteva in grado di farsi tutto a tutti, e specialmente ai poveri (ma senza disprezzare i ricchi; i quali, da un punto di vista spirituale, possono essere più poveri dei poveri, e avere quindi bisogno dell’assistenza di un sacerdote o di un religioso quanto e più dei poveri in senso economico). I cattolici progressisti hanno scambiato il Vangelo per il Manifesto del Partito comunista, e credono che Marx e Cristo possano andare d’amore e d’accordo per il bene degli uomini, come sosteneva un altro famoso friulano, Pier Paolo Pasolini, il quale, secondo noi, del Vangelo aveva capito poco e niente. E il Friuli dovrebbe ricordare con orgoglio i suoi figli che avevano capito che lui non aveva capito,  Giuseppe Marchetti, e ancor più Cornelio Fabro: perché la strada del Vangelo è la strada della santità; e quale santità può venire da chi indulge a una vita sregolata e dissoluta, a chi addirittura ne teorizza la perfetta liceità, come ora sta facendo quell’indegno gesuita americano, James Martin, la cui ombra malefica già si profila sul prossimo Incontro internazionale sulla famiglia? Se costui si presenterà a parlare come relatore, è certo che chiederà di riconoscere come “famiglie” anche le cosiddette famiglie arcobaleno: pretenderà, cioè, di far accettare ai cattolici non solo la pratica dell’omosessualità; non solo la pratica delle cosiddette coppie omosessuali; ma anche le adozioni omosessuali e la fecondazione eterologa, insomma le famiglie omosessuali, mettendole sullo steso piano della famiglia cristiana fondata sul legane naturale, e soprannaturale (ma di questo, padre Martin si è dimenticato?) fra l’uomo e la donna che confidano in Dio. Già molti vescovi, come Bonny, di Anversa, e molti sacerdoti, come don Scordato, a Palermo, sono d’accordo con questa linea: non si è forse visto il primo chiedere un riconoscimento della Chiesa alle unioni omosessuali, e il secondo presentare festoso una coppia di lesbiche sull’altare, in piena Messa, indicandole ai fedeli come modello ed esempio di autentico amore? Un discorso del tutto analogo si può fare per i migranti, dai quali il neoclero è letteralmente ossessionato, come del resto lo è il signor Bergoglio. A parte il fatto che costoro non sono veri profughi, ma dei falsi profughi,  nel novanta per cento e più dei casi; a parte il fatto che prescrivere l’accoglienza di centinaia di migliaia e, in prospettiva, di milioni di africani islamici, significa alterare irrimediabilmente la fisionomia e la struttura materiale e spirituale della nostra società; a parte la continua invasione di campo nella sfera politica, e gli attacchi furibondi contro quegli italiani che non condividono la pratica della auto-invasione, bollati come populisti, razzisti, fascisti, e, naturalmente, come dei cattivi cristiani: a parte tutto questo, chi lo dice che la sola maniera di aiutare le persone sia quella di autorizzarle a trasferirsi in casa d’altri?

I "santi" di oggi: don Andrea Gallo.

Al contrario, ciò è profondamente sbagliato sia in senso materiale, perché equivale a “svuotare” sempre di più i Paesi di provenienza, privandoli delle braccia più valide e della sola speranza nel futuro, sia in senso morale, perché equivale a incoraggiare la fuga dalle responsabilità, l’abbandono dei parenti, dei genitori anziani, delle mogli, dei figli, inseguendo un miraggio di benessere che, oltre ad essere falso e illusorio, è anche totalmente contrario all’ideale evangelico. Non di solo pane vive l’uomo, ha insegnato Gesù Cristo, e ne ha dato continui esempi, durante tutta la sua vita terrena. Soddisfare le esigenze materiali, riempire lo stomaco delle persone non è sufficiente, se non si mira a operare una conversione, una purificiazione e un nuovo orientamento dell’anima, che, facendosi una cosa sola con la volontà di Dio, diventa capace di operare il bene. In altre parole: il bene non è solo quello materiale, e non è onesto, né cristiano, stare ad aspettarselo dagli altro senza far  nulla, vivere di carità e di parassitismo, diventare dei bisognosi di professione; inoltre, è profondamente diseducativo regalare ogni cosa a chi non lavora e non intende guadagnarsi onestamente la vita, come nel caso dei rom. Chi si dimentica queste cose, chi vuol ridurre la Chiesa a una o.n.g., chi scambia il Vangelo per il Manifesto, semplicemente non è cattolico. Che se ne vada per la sua strada; oppure Cristo dovrà tornare a farsi crocifiggere, visto che noi rifiutiamo la croce…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

          #Doughnutgate: Online conspiracy theorists target Oregon donut shop with Pizzagate-like claims      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

A rising far-right conspiracy theory claims that a popular donut shop in Portland, OR, Voodoo Doughnuts, is a front for child trafficking. As of this writing, a YouTube video featuring the claim has more than 63,000 views, while the hashtag #donutgate appears to be gaining traction on Twitter. The allegation is an echoand an offshoot of Pizzagate, a conspiracy theory President Donald Trump supporters popularized during the 2016 election cycle, which baselessly claimed Democratic politicians operated a pedophilia ring from Washington, D.C. pizzeria Comet Ping Pong.

On August 4, a man named Michael Whelan, known on Twitter as VeganMikey went on Nathan Stolpman’s YouTube channel Lift the Veil to share an incident after, according to him, he “was made aware of people that were participating in sexual abuse and trafficking of children in the city of Portland, OR.” Stolpman claimed the incident was connected to the owner of Portland’s Voodoo Doughnuts and that they were going to “be linking this to Comet Pizza as well.”

Whelan said he had been “eyewitness to children taken back” at a party at the home of Tres Shannon, the owner of Voodoo Donuts, where “there was abuse of children going on.” Whelan also claimed people within the alleged ring “had worked at Comet,” linking his allegations to Pizzagate.

In the video, both Whelan and Stolpman credited Isaac Kappy for talking about pedophilia rings as an inspiration for others to go public with similar allegations. Whelan also directly addressed Kappy asking him to “help the people on the ground level of this happening.” Kappy is a minor actor and QAnon enthusiast who was among the conspiracy theorists claiming on videos that Hollywood celebrities like Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg were involved in pedophilia rings. As a result, searches on YouTube last week for Hanks and Spielberg were momentarily dominated by videos of the wild conspiracy theories. Kappy’s allegations were too extreme even for conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who hosted Kappy on Infowars and asked him to restrain his wide-ranging accusations by avoiding “getting into names,” a precaution possibly linked to the defamation lawsuits Jones is currently battling for his own conspiracy theories.

Kappy promoted the Lift the Veil video to his followers during a Periscope session in which he also gave oxygen to the wild QAnon-related absurd claim that John F. Kennedy Jr. is, in fact, alive and behind the anonymous Q posts, saying “that would be the jaw-dropper of the century” if Kennedy Jr. was alive.

The claims about Voodoo donuts have reached Reddit, where users have shared Stolpman’s video within a QAnon subreddit. On the online message board 4chan -- from where many hoaxes and harassment campaigns often originate -- users appear to be actively organizing a campaign against the donut shop focused on distributing flyers containing the unsubstantiated claims.

Such campaigns can have dangerous real-life consequences. Despite the fact there is no evidence to substantiate Pizzagate, a man inspired by the wild conspiracy theory showed up at the restaurant to self-investigate and opened fire.

One YouTube video linked Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) to the conspiracy theory while a website peddling in Pizzagate tried to link evangelist Franklin Graham to the supposed crime ring.

The claims regarding Voodoo Doughnuts earlier appeared on YouTube in late 2016 and early 2017, when multiple uploaded videos focused on the allegations. One recurring allegation was that designs on certain doughnuts were secret references to changelings and pedophilia:

The allegations were also made on a dating forum in early December 2016, with the poster citing “Patriot News.”

This time around, these allegations have received much wider attention following Kappy’s endorsement. An analysis on the hashtag tracker Keyhole shows that tweets containing #doughnutgate are now gaining traction and its impressions have reached more than 826,477 users; tweets for #donutgate have reached an additional 186.623 users. According to Keyhole, the major related hashtags that appear next to #doughnutgate are #pizzagate and #pedogate.

Media Matters reached out to Voodoo Doughnuts and will be updating this piece if the donut shop responds.

          PUBG announces major bug-fixing campaign      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

If you've stumbled onto any of the PUBG Reddit forums since its release, you'll know it's pretty much impossible to go less than ten seconds before stumbling across the phrase "fix PUBG". The game's name has almost become synonymous with bugs and janky gameplay. Developer PUBG Corp has recently promised major improvements to the game, and it seems this time it's really serious about it, as the company has set up a website specifically to allow players to track bug-fixing progress.

In a post on Steam, PUBG Corp admitted "bugs, performance problems, and quality-of-life issues have been limiting PUBG's true potential," and said the time has come "to do something about it". The developer's new campaign, literally called "FIX PUBG," is apparently a "months-long campaign to deliver the changes and improvements that [players have] been asking for". According to PUBG Corp, this involves a "roadmap with specific details about our plans" which will be checked off as the developer delivers on its promises.

Looking at the Fix PUBG micro-site, the campaign is mainly about improving communication with players to inform them of fixes and improvements. The "roadmap" itself comes in the form of several visual graphs to display progress in a number of areas, including categories such as client performance, server performance, anti-cheat and matchmaking. Some of these promises have already been fulfilled, as according to the PUBG community manager on Reddit, the bug-fixing campaign actually began last week with update 19. PUBG Corp also announced it's delivering another patch today to help kick things off: limb penetration, a "graphics sharpening" setting and the ability to mute individual teammates are just some of the changes included in the patch. The FAQ section on the Fix PUBG website reveals this improvement process will continue over the next three months.

          Airline Chicken Breast – Come Pan-Fry the Friendly Skies      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Welcome to another episode of food you only see in restaurants, starring the always eye-catching “airline chicken” breast. Legend has it that the name comes from the fact this cut of chicken is shaped like an airplane wing, but that’s not actually the reason. 

This beautiful breast is known as airline chicken because it was such a popular menu item back in the day, when airlines still gave their guests real food. Above and beyond the wing-like shape, this worked so well is because food for air travel needs to be cooked way ahead of time, which means it can dry out, especially something like a chicken breast, but by leaving the wing joint attached, that becomes a little less likely. Plus, once you finished your breast, you got to eat a chicken wing drumette. Now that’s value-added service.

As I mentioned in the video, please feel free to use whatever spices and seasoning you wish, since that will not affect the technique at all. I should have used fresh herbs inside for a little nicer appearance once sliced, but I think I more than made up for that with the sprig of rosemary. Regardless of how you flavor yours, I really do hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy!

          10 Tech People Share The Strangest Stuff They Found On Someone's Computer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Tech People Share The Strangest Stuff They Found ></p>
<p>Reminder: if you've ever done weird stuff on a computer owned by your job or by your school, there's an IT department who knows ALL ABOUT IT. It shouldn't be asking TOO much to keep your more <em>personal </em>browsing habits to your own private computer, and yet here we are. Thanks to <a href=this r/askreddit thread, we know....wayyyyyy too much about how people treat computers they don't own.



1. Six hours is an impressive amount of time to do ANYTHING. (from gringo1980)

This Indian guy had just left our company. He was extremely conservative, no bullshit, no joking around kinda guy. Small, glasses, and always dressed in button ups and khakis. He was pretty high up too, just below director level. Anyway, he left to start his own company and turned his laptop in.

You'd think someone working at a technology company would know to use incognito for any naughty stuff they looked at on their work computer, or at least clear browser history. Nope! Every second this guy wasn't looking at email or power points, big black butts. Constantly browsing for big black butts during work, and that's like all he'd do after work.

I don't mean he'd go home and look at big black butts for 20 minutes and jerk off. Everyday 6+ hours of looking at big black butts when he got home.



2. Hey, at least they added "consensual." (from alienalf1)

I was working on some stuff for the local parish church years ago and the latest search on the priest's computer was "consensual adult spanking". You know, I didn't care if he was into spanking but I had to lol that he went to the trouble of finding adults who consented.



3. I mean....even I'm curious. (from poaauma)

Logged onto a roommate's computer to play half life 2 and found a paused video still up entitled "two bitches pissin' on a barbeque."

I watched

(for the curious)



4. Always make sure to doublecheck the settings on your phone. Please. (from BigMacFly)

A guy had recently quit from our office and had been gone for about a week and I was doing a final backup of his PC to store on DVDs. I had music streaming blocked at the firewall but I heard him listening to music from his PC so I decided to check his browser history to see what site he was streaming from.

His Chrome browser history was filled with all kinds of porn sites even up to the day I was doing the back up. I was confused at first about how his history was showing porn on days he didn't work there but I realized that he had synced his work browser with his phone browser and didn't log off of the work browser on his last day.

There was an hour of porn in the morning, an hour of porn at around lunchtime and porn all evening...every damn day. I like porn as much as the next guy but this guy had a problem.

I wanted to share with somebody so bad but I'm big on privacy so I logged him off the browser and cleared the history and kept my mouth shut.



5. If you have 50 Yahoo! toolbars, you're one sick monster. (from collin3000)

For me I always have though porn is a normal thing. but downloading 50 toolbars till you can barely see your screen or 20 different versions of the same majohg game makes me go WTF for sure



6. This is the most disgusting thing I've ever read. Yuck. (from sdvr1)

Started typing on their computer and it turns out they were using DVORAK instead of QWERTY.



7. This is simply wrong. C'mon - don't do this. (from keeblerElf1023)

A co-worker of mine had his desktop wallpaper set to a selfie of him bawling his eyes out. I was so fucking confused. When I asked him about it, he said "everyone has pictures of themselves smiling. Why don't we have other emotions in selfies?" To which I responded, "Because of that!" while pointing at his monitor.



8. If you're constantly getting porn viruses on your work computer, you miiiight set off a few red flags. (from GreekNord)

used to work for a place that did IT stuff for schools, mainly parochial schools.

one of the guys that had to have viruses removed more often than anybody else was a priest/teacher that taught 3rd grade-ish.
every virus came from porn sites, and he'd pretty regularly download literal gigabytes of porn every week - and this was about 6 years ago, so that is a lot more video than what it would be today (due to video quality increases over time)
we were out to clean up his computer about once a week, and the school/church was getting charged every time.

main reason that we figured out it was from porn was because the school/church asked us to look into why he was getting viruses so often. (we normally don't look into what they're actually doing unless we're asked to)

Browser history was all we ended up needing.



9. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (from awildwaggs)

One of my roommates in college asked me to look at his computer, he said it was being slow and weird. I'm looking around and see a folder that says "private" I look in it and it's mainly like tax returns and other like official stuff, then there's another that says "super private" I open it up and it has 4 clips and a picture in it.

The first clip was a compilation of Kim possible grunting. It was like 5 minutes long.

Second clip is all 3 of secretariat's triple crown races.

Third clip is a 2 1/2 hour hard core gang bang porno.

Fourth clip is a little children's choir, which I learned was his little cousin, singing Christmas song.

And the picture. Was a crime scene photo of Nicole Brown Simpson.

I asked him about it and he said it was his special folder. I had never been more confused in my entire life.



10. Ignorance is bliss. Remember that. (from the_gift_of_g2j)

I work at a college IT department.

I didn't see it, but my coworker did.

An old guy shows up asking to help send a picture of his ID to his email. I see my coworker start working with him, then immediately set the phone down and walk off as the old guy hastily grab his phone and stand around awkwardly not talking or answering any questions when I ask him if everything is alright.

Coworker messages me from his phone saying tell him when the old guy leaves.

Old guy stands around for 5 minutes and then leaves.

Apparently, my coworker accidentally swiped to the next photo and it was this old dude's wrinkly hairy dick wrapped up in multiple purple rubber bands.

He's coming back from a year abroad this next week and his work station is going to be covered with purple rubber bands

          Galloni ai gialloverdi: come assumere 1 milione di giovani      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Galloni: assumere 1 milione di giovani grazie a moneta fiscale parallela, così il governo gialloverde può fare il vero cambiamento.
Incombe una nuova crisi finanziaria, si aggraverà l’emergenza migranti, la Germania inizierà a sfilarsi dall’euro e l’Italia sarà nei guai senza più il “quantitative easing” garantito dalla Bce. Queste, per l’economista Nino Galloni, sono le vere mine sulla strada del governo gialloverde: senza una moneta parallela, fiscale, non sarà possibile andare lontano. La questione Tav in valle di Susa e le nomine Rai? Vengono enfatizzate e dipinte dagli avversari del governo quali prove dei contrasti interni e dei problemi della nuova maggioranza. In realtà, per Galloni, si tratta di tempeste in bicchieri d’acqua e, semmai, di sintonia futura. Certo, tutto può sempre accadere, persino tra qualche mese salti tutto, di fronte alle difficoltà proprie della legge finanziaria. Tuttavia la previsione che Galloni affida a “Scenari Economici” è diversa. «L’attuale cambiamento è importante ed irreversibile, sebbene varie questioni adesso in ballo rilancino la prospettiva di un’alleanza strategica tra Pd e Forza Italia», cosa che, beninteso, «rafforzerebbe quella fra gialli e verdi». Ma, se il governo supererà le tante “tempeste nel bicchiere” e anche la primavera 2019, dovrà affrontare le quattro grandi sfide che accompagneranno l’Europa. La prima? Sarà «la crisi finanziaria globale che seguirà l’allineamento della Bce sulle posizioni più restrittive della Fed e l’aumento dei tassi d’interesse che, col rafforzamento insensato del dollaro, costringeranno Trump ad insistere coi dazi».
La crescita del Pil Usa, spiega Galloni, è stata tutta dovuta all’acquisto di merci Usa prima dell’introduzione dei dazi stessi. A questo si aggiungerà «l’aggravarsi e l’estendersi del problema immigrazione dall’Africa occidentale», un disastro che diventerà catastrofico, a medio termine, «se non si interverrà efficacemente sulle carestie locali, di origine climatica». Terzo guaio in arrivo: «Nella seconda parte del 2019 la Germania potrebbe cominciare a sfilarsi dall’euro per guardare di più verso Est». Attenzione: «Senza Qe e con un possibile declassamento del rating – sostiene Galloni – l’Italia si troverebbe in serie difficoltà, a meno di non introdurre valute parallele, minibonds o certificati di credito fiscale». Una strettoia serissima: «La possibilità che sia la Bce a fornire denaro allo Stato contro i titoli che le banche ordinarie non potessero più assorbire – spiega l’economista – è legata al commissariamento del paese», addirittura. Quarta calamità in arrivo, lo squilibrio tra domanda e offerta, nel mercato del lavoro: «Il sistema sta domandando sempre meno lavoro nei comparti redditizi, mentre in quelli dove l’occupazione dovrà crescere (servizi di cura delle persone, dell’ambiente e del patrimonio esistente), i costi – cioè il lavoro necessario – sono superiori al fatturato; quindi, alle condizioni del mercato non sono gestibili».
Ecco la grande sfida che abbiamo di fronte, secondo Galloni, vicepresidente del Movimento Rooseelt: si tratta di «coniugare reddito di cittadinanza, riduzione delle tasse, maggiore libertà di azione per le piccole imprese, sicurezza e riqualificazione (ma non ridimensionamento!) dei compiti dello Stato». Finora, spiega, queste cose sono state rappresentate come alternative tra loro; adesso, invece, «bisogna trovare energie e risorse per realizzare qualcosa di nuovo e di assolutamente necessario». Le energie? Loro: i giovani disoccupati, laureati e diplomati. E le risorse? Basterà «l’emissione di un 2-3% di Pil di moneta sovrana non a debito a sola circolazione nazionale, non convertibile». Esempio: «Con l’equivalente di 25 miliardi di euro (pari all’1,5% del Pil) si potrebbe assumere un milione di giovani a 1.500 euro al mese per un anno». Obiettivo necessario, che «getterebbe nuova luce sul tema del reddito di cittadinanza e riqualificherebbe  l’equilibrio di bilancio in rapporto alla riduzione della pressione fiscale». La moneta non a debito, infatti, «ha segno algebrico opposto a quello della spesa: e così il cambiamento sarebbe fattibile e possibile».

Incombe una nuova crisi finanziaria, si aggraverà l’emergenza migranti, la Germania inizierà a sfilarsi dall’euro e l’Italia sarà nei guai senza più il “quantitative easing” garantito dalla Bce. Queste, per l’economista Nino Galloni, sono le vere mine sulla strada del governo gialloverde: senza una moneta parallela, fiscale, non sarà possibile andare lontano. La questione Tav in valle di Susa e le nomine Rai? Vengono enfatizzate e dipinte dagli avversari del governo quali prove dei contrasti interni e dei problemi della nuova maggioranza. In realtà, per Galloni, si tratta di tempeste in bicchieri d’acqua e, semmai, di sintonia futura.

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

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

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

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

          Grant Gustin Fires Back at Body Shamers After The Flash Suit Photo Leak      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Grant Gustin is not cool with people criticizing his new look on The Flash or his overall slim physique, for that matter.

A photo of the CW series star appearing as Barry Allen and wearing what is described as a prototype of his new suit has been circulating online over the past day. The outfit appears to be made of thinner material than the traditional leather and features a smaller Flash emblem and a new mask that does not cover Gustin's chin. The photo is set to have been taken during a costume fitting. The CW has not commented on the image, which has spurred some people on social media and Reddit to criticize the suit and Gustin's body.

"So here's the thing about this bulls--t photo leak," Gustin said on Instagram on Wednesday. "It's a cool suit. There's a terrible photo that I was unaware was being taken, much less being posted. Some things need work and they will be worked on. We'll get there."

"As far as the body shaming. That's what pisses me off. Not even just for my sake," he said. "I've had 20+ years of kids and adults telling me or my parents that I was too thin. But there's a double standard where it's OK to talk s--t about a dude's body. I do my best to stay in shape and add as much size as I can throughout these seasons. I'm naturally thin, and my appetite is greatly affected by stress. Stress is something that ebbs and flows for me throughout a season. Thus, gaining weight is a challenge for me." 

Stars Who Played Multiple Superheroes

He added, "I didn't cast a slim actor as The Flash. I went to an audition for a role I never dreamed I'd actually book. But, here I am 5 seasons later. I'm happy with my body and who I am and other kids who are built like me and thinner than me should be able to feel the same way. Not only that, but they should be able to feel like THEY could be a superhero on TV or film or whatever it may be some day."

"I love the suit that has been designed for me, and I think when everyone sees it in its entirety, you will love it too," he wrote. "Things have been adjusted since that leaked shot was taken, and more things will continue to be adjusted until it feels right.

Gustin was more blunt and emotional on his Instagram Story.

"F--k whoever leaked that," he said.

          Google Maps is almost perfect, so of course Google had to find a way to ruin it      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I’ve said it a bunch of times already, but it's always worth repeating: Google Maps is one of the must-have apps right now, even on iPhone where an alternative from Apple comes preinstalled. Google is still miles ahead of Apple when it comes to maps and navigation, though the latter has been quietly rebuilding Apple Maps for a few years now. Google is also adding plenty of neat, even unnecessary features to its Maps app, that can turn the entire experience into an even more enjoyable experience. And while Google Maps is almost perfect, there are ways Google is “ruining,” including a brand new tick that you won’t like. To make the most of Google Maps you have to agree to Google tracking you at all times, and we already have a pretty good idea of everything Google can collect about users. It’s scary, yes, but it’s also a necessary evil if you want to keep enjoying the Maps app as it is. You have to pay for the app with your data, and that’s a good trade for many people — and Google Maps has over a billion users on Android alone. So that’s one way Google is “ruining” Maps, and your only way out is choosing a different navigation app. But there’s an even more disturbing Google Maps feature that might annoy users, and that’s the built-in ads that pop up in search results. Here’s an example, posted recently on Reddit: Here’s the explanation that goes along with it:
This ad in "emergency room near me" is way farther than the second option. In a panic, you might hit directions for option A and end up spending an extra 15 minutes on the road.
As you can see in the image, option A is clearly marked as an ad, but you might not notice that every time, especially in emergency situations, as Reddit user pudge_og says. The top placement of the ad practically ensures that some people will click on it, whether they notice it’s an advert or not, thinking it’s the faster route. It turns out, in this case, it’s not the fastest option. Other Reddit users seem to agree with the original poster:
These new ads in maps are infuriating - can't turn it off and it's messing with my ability to search for what I really want. Some the ads don't make sense either and are a stretch to be relevant to what I'm searching for.
Other commenters are also annoyed at Google for including business names in navigation directions, like this:
The other day I literally had "make a left turn after the Whataburger in 500 feet." "Turn left past the Whataburger." Mentioned by name twice. But it was actually kinda nice to have a landmark for the turn I guess.
As one other user pointed out, Google’s way of delivering results can be dangerous:
The one thing about Maps that literally grinds my gears is that they don't automatically load directions to the nearest ____ for certain situations that are obvious, and by which they easily have the means to facilitate. Key example: if I'm simply moving in a car, they detect this with the accelerometer and GPS. If I use voice-to-text during those conditions, I am obviously driving. So why is it that when I say something like "gas station," it gives me (the person driving a 2-ton death machine) a list to scroll and through instead of automatically directing me to the nearest instance of what I asked for. That's just fucking dangerous.
The full Reddit thread is available at this link. If you see ads messing up your Google Maps experience, you can just try to report them to Google and hope things will be fixed down the road.

Bitcoin Hack

Joel Ortiz, un joven estudiante de 20 años de Boston, Estados Unidos, fue detenido en el aeropuerto de Los Ángeles cuando se dirigía a Europa, ¿la razón? Está siendo acusado de ser la cabeza de un grupo de hackers dedicados a robar criptomonedas.

Las autoridades de California mencionaron que Ortiz tiene denuncias de más de 40 personas a quienes supuestamente les habría secuestrado sus números de teléfono móvil, lo que lo habría ayudado a robar más de cinco millones de dólares en criptomonedas, principalmente bitcoins.

El 'SIM swapping' ataca otra vez

Ortiz es el primer caso denunciado en Estados Unidos de robo de criptomonedas usando el 'SIM swapping', una técnica que empieza a volverse muy popular para ataques, sólo basta recordar el caso del reciente hackeo a Reddit. El 'SIM swapping' consiste en engañar a la operadora móvil para que transfiera el número telefónico de una víctima hacia una SIM en propiedad del hacker.

Una vez que el atacante tiene la SIM con el número de su víctima, el siguiente paso es cambiar sus contraseñas, principalmente de correo electrónico y redes sociales, así como de sus carteras de criptodivisas como en este caso en concreto. Al tener el número telefónico, tampoco importa que las cuentas estén protegidas por autenticación de dos pasos por medio de SMS, ya que todo se recibe en el SIM secuestrada.

Joel Ortiz enfrenta un total de 28 cargos: 13 por robo de identidad, 13 por hackeo y dos por robo mayor. Todas las demandas provienen de inversores en criptodivisas y participantes de la pasada conferencia Consensus, que se llevó a cabo en Nueva York el pasado mes de mayo, y la cual se enfoca en temas de blockchain y criptomonedas.

Hack Bitcoin

De acuerdo a los primeros datos de la investigación, Ortiz pertenece al grupo autodenominado OGUSERS, quienes se encargan de hackear e intercambiar cuentas de personajes famosos e importantes en Twitter e Instagram, donde el objetivo es siempre tratar de robar criptodivisas.

En todos los casos, las víctimas reportaron que su número de teléfono móvil había muerto, y cuando se acercaron con su operadora para recuperarlo, es cuando se percataron del robo. Entre los afectados, está un inversor que perdió millón y medio en bitcoins, y un empresario que perdió un millón.

Según los investigadores, Ortiz ya había atacado antes, entre febrero y marzo, a un inversor de quien secuestró su número en dos ocasiones, restableciendo sus contraseñas de Gmail y accesos a sus sitios de carteras de criptomonedas. Incluso aseguran que Ortiz uso el número para llamar y amenazar a la esposa e hija de su víctima.

Las autoridades tuvieron que ejercer presión a las tecnológicas

Allied Alforcement, un grupo integrado por diversos especialistas en delitos cibernéticos de la policía de California, fue el departamento encargado de investigar las actividades de Ortiz. Enviaron solicitudes de información a la operadora AT&T, donde pedían el registro de llamadas de los números robados mientras estaban secuestrados, con lo que encontraron dos IMEI que apuntaban a dos smartphones Samsung con Android.

Una vez que tuvieron los IMEI de los smartphones, lo siguiente fue ponerse en contacto con Google para pedir todos los datos conectados a esos smartphones. Aquí fue donde encontraron una cuenta de Gmail y una de Microsoft, las cuales mostraban la actividad de Ortiz, como cambios de contraseñas, conversaciones con otros miembros de OGUSERS y datos para el SIM swapping. Así como pruebas del intercambio de bitcoins en sitios como Coinbase, Bittrex y Binance, donde aseguran hay movimientos millonarios.

Asimismo, AT&T también proporcionó un documento con todos los números que se activaron en esos IMEI durante el mes de mayo, y es así como descubrieron que habían sido más de 40 los afectados, ya que sólo algunos denunciaron. Una vez que tuvieron los números, lo siguiente fue llamar a los dueños y preguntar si habían sufrido algún robo durante mayo, lo cual fue determinante para emprender acciones legales en contra de Ortiz.

Las autoridades aseguran que hasta el momento han logrado confiscarle a Ortiz 250.000 dólares en bitcoins, pero no han podido encontrar el resto del dinero en otras criptomonedas.

A día de hoy, Ortiz está encarcelado en California y se le ha fijado una fianza de un millón de dólares, aunque este 9 de agosto se llevará a cabo su audiencia donde se espera que se declare culpable y se ofrezca para ayudar a capturar al resto de los miembros de OGUSERS. Algo que, en teoría, le ayudará a reducir su sentencia.

Harley-Davidson, Inc. (H-D), or Harley, is definitely an National bike manufacturer, established in Milwaukee, Iowa in 1903.

1 of 2 important American motorcycle companies to survive the Good Despair (along with Indian),[2] the business has lasted numerous possession arrangements, subsidiary agreements (e.g., Aermacchi 1974-1978 and Buell 1987-2009), periods of poor financial health and solution quality, in addition to intense world wide competition,[3] to become one of the world's biggest bike makers and an iconic model commonly noted for their dedicated following. You can find manager clubs and activities worldwide along with a company-sponsored brand-focused museum.

Noted for a design of modification that gave rise to

the chopper bike type,[4] Harley-Davidson historically promoted heavyweight, air-cooled cruiser bikes with motor displacements greater than 700 cm³ and has broadened their offerings to add its more recent VRSC (2002) and middle-weight Road (2015) platforms.

Harley-Davidson manufactures their cycles at factories in York, Pennsylvania; Milwaukee, Iowa; Kansas Town, Mo (closing); Manaus, Brazil; and Bawal, India. Structure of a fresh seed in Thailand is planned to start in late 2018[5]. The company areas their products and services worldwide.

Besides motorcycles, the company permits and areas product beneath the Harley-Davidson model, one of them clothing, home decor and ornaments, accessories, toys, and scale numbers of their bikes, Honda Motorcycles For Sale and video gaming centered on their bike point and the community.

Buell Bike Business
Main report: Buell Motorcycle Company

Buell Lightning XB9SX
Harley-Davidson's association with sportbike company Buell Bike Company began in 1987 when they supplied Buell with fifty surplus XR1000 engines. Buell extended to purchase motors from Harley-Davidson till 1993, when Harley-Davidson ordered 49 percent of the Buell Motorcycle Company.[71] Harley-Davidson increased their reveal in Buell to ninety-eight per cent in 1998, and to accomplish ownership in 2003.

In an attempt to entice novices to motorcycling generally and to Harley-Davidson particularly, Buell developed a low-cost, low-maintenance motorcycle. The resulting single-cylinder Buell Blast was introduced in 2000, and Harley-davidson News Announcement was created through 2009, which, based on Buell, was to be the last year of production. The Buell Blast was working out car for the Harley-Davidson Rider's Edge New Rider Program from 2000 till May 2014, when the company re-branded the training school and started utilising the Harley-Davidson Road 500 motorcycles. In those 14 decades, significantly more than 350,000 participants in the course learned to drive on the Buell Blast.

On March 15, 2009, Harley-Davidson Inc. issued the official record so it would be discontinuing the Buell point and ceasing generation immediately.[76] The mentioned reason was to focus on the Harley-Davidson brand. The business Motorcycle Racing For Kids refused to think about selling Buell. Founder Erik Buell eventually recognized Erik Buell Race and continued to produce and build their 1125RR racing motorcycle.



Bike engines

1,450 cc V-twin
Principal report: Harley-Davidson engine timeline
The common Harley-Davidson engines are V-twin motors, with a 45° position between the cylinders. The crankshaft includes a simple green, and both pistons are connected to this pin through their connecting rods.

This 45° direction is covered under many United States patents and is an executive tradeoff that enables a big, high-torque engine in a somewhat small space. It triggers the cylinders to fire at irregular periods and creates the choppy "potato-potato" noise
motorcycle speaker
therefore strongly linked to the Harley-Davidson brand.

To simplify the motor and minimize charges, the V-twin ignition was designed to operate with an individual pair of details and number distributor. This is known as a dual fireplace ignition system, producing both spark connects to fire regardless which cylinder was on their compression stroke, with another spark plug firing on their cylinder's fatigue stroke, efficiently "wasting a spark ".The exhaust note is actually a throaty barking sound with some popping. The 45° style of the motor thus creates a plug firing sequencing as such: The initial tube fires, the 2nd (rear) cylinder fires 315° later, Harley Davidson Road King Chrome then there is a 405° gap before first cylinder fires again, providing the engine its unique sound.[102]

Harley-Davidson has used various ignition techniques through the duration of its record – be it the early items and condenser process, (Big Twin around 1978 and Sportsters as much as 1978), magneto ignition process applied to some 1958 to 1969 Sportsters, early digital with centrifugal mechanical improve weights, (all types 1978 and a half to 1979), or the late digital with transistorized ignition control element, more familiarly known as the dark box or the mind, (all versions 1980 to present).

Beginning in 1995, the business presented Electronic Energy Harley-davidson Parts And Accessories Shot (EFI) being an selection for the 30th wedding variation Electra Glide. EFI turned normal on all Harley-Davidson motorcycles, including Sportsters, upon the release of the 2007 item line.

In 1991, Harley-Davidson started initially to participate in the Noise Quality Functioning Group, founded by Orfield Labs, Bruel and Kjaer, TEAC, Yamaha, Sennheiser, SMS and Cortex. This was the nation's first group to fairly share research on psychological acoustics. Later that year, Harley-Davidson participated in a series of noise quality studies at Orfield Labs, centered on recordings taken at the Talladega Superspeedway, with the aim to lessen the sound level for EU criteria while analytically Motorcycle Fails Usa catching the "Harley Noise".[citation needed] This research triggered the bikes that were presented in conformity with EU requirements for 1998.

On February 1, 1994, the company registered an audio trademark software for the exclusive sound of the Harley-Davidson bike motor: "The tag contains the exhaust sound of applicant's cycles, made by V-twin, frequent crankpin motorcycle engines when the things come in use ".Nine of Harley-Davidson's opponents filed comments opposing the application, fighting that cruiser-style motorcycles of numerous manufacturers make use of a single-crankpin V-twin engine which produce a similar sound. These objections were accompanied by litigation. In June 2000, the organization slipped efforts to federally register its trademark.

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

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

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

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

          Mapping The Median Age In Every US County      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The United States is a vast place, and every region is markedly different.

Usually we look at these differences through lenses like geography, population density, preferences, wealth, and culture – but, as Visual Capitalist's Jeff Desjardins notes, age is another interesting one to think about, and age is a significant factor in predicting future economic health and growth for almost any society.

THE AGE FACTOR

As the French philosopher Auguste Comte wrote, “Demography is destiny”.

If you know a person’s age, you’re usually able to guess other things about them. For example, younger people are usually more motivated and inclined to launch careers, start families, and seek economic security. Not all young people are this way of course – but in aggregate, this is generally true.

Today’s map comes to us from Reddit user /r/JFBoyy and it charts median age by every U.S. county, parish, borough, and Census Area.

Courtesy of: Visual Capitalist

COUNTIES BY AGE

Which states and counties stand out on the map?

Utah is an interesting place to start – it’s the youngest state with a median age of 29.9, and this is extremely clear when looking at the county level. The state has only one county (Daggett) with a median age range above 35-44 years.

Florida and Maine are two other states that stand out. Florida is the stereotypical “old” state, and there is some truth to that based on the numbers. It’s the only state that has a county (Sumter) with a median age range over 65 years. Meanwhile, Maine has only five counties that are not “old” counties – and the majority of counties have median ages that fall in the 45-54 range.

The Midwest and Southeast seem to have a higher distribution of counties with median ages in the “middle ground” 35-44 median age range. Alabama has 67 counties, and all but five of them are in that bracket.

Meanwhile, the West seems to have an interesting dichotomy in many of its states. Washington State, for example, has many counties with old populations (San Juan, Jefferson, and others) but also counties with younger populations (Whitman, Yakima, Kittitas).

Idaho is the most potent example of this tendency: all of the old people seem to live in the north of the state, and all of the young people in the south.

A LOOK TO THE FUTURE

Here is how median age projects out to 2040, but on a state level.

Overall the national median age is projected to go from 37.7 to 39 years.

Interestingly, while aging in the United States is expected to cause some demographic issues in the long run, the country’s challenges pale in comparison to other rapidly-aging countries in the Western world.

It was a week into the bizarre "red pill" Kanye West tour that the whole affair seemed to reach its zenith — or its nadir, depending on where you're sitting. Kanye completed his transmogrification into a sentient Reddit thread when he appeared on TMZ this week, parroting well-worn talking points about black-on-black crime and calling slavery in America "a choice." Van Lathan of TMZ was not having it. Kanye West — rapper, music producer, clothing designer, provocateur of debatable guile — emerged from a period of relative quietude only to spend the two weeks thrusting himself into our exhausting culture wars. He shouted out the alt-right-adjacent commentator Candace Owens. He reiterated his affection for President Trump, who returned the love . He snapped a red-hat selfie. And for good measure, he wrote a verse that says black people were still on " the Democratic plantation ." Kanye said that he was "free thinking" and that he had slipped the bonds of black political conventions. The

Imagina tu peor foto. Ahora imagina que está en internet. Bueno, pues así ha sido la vida para estos rostros famosos tras nuestros memes favoritos. Por suerte, aunque internet no es un sitio donde se olvida, si que da oportunidades de redimirse. Caras como la niña que mira mal o la que te observa tras un incendio, ya han crecido. Sus expresiones han quedado inmortalizadas en la web, pero ahora también puedes ver su aspecto actual. La mayoría han mejorado con el tiempo, pero aún se los reconoce fácilmente. Aquí debajo puedes ver a estas celebridades de los memes, ¡vota por tus favoritos! 1. Sam Griner Se originó en 2007, cuando su madre subió una foto de Sammy intentando comer arena. A su hijo le da vergüenza que lo asocien con los memes. 2. Chloe mirándote mal En 2013, una youtuber subió un vídeo de 2 hermanas reaccionando ante las noticias de que iban a Disneylandia. Una se puso a llorar de alegría, y la otra, Chloe, puso esta cara. 3. Zoe Roth Esta foto se hizo en 2004, cuando los bomberos entrenaban apagando esta casa cerca de la de Zoe. Su padre le pilló poniendo cara diabólica mientras el fuego ardía. A Zoe le encantaría que el meme le ayudara a pagar la universidad. 4. Novia loca (Laina Morris) Esta youtuber subió un vídeo parodiando “Boyfriend” de Justin Bieber en 2012. Tras el éxtio del meme, dijo que desconocidos encontraban su FB personal, su trabajo y demás problemas de privacidad. 5. Mia Talerico Esta es una escena de un programa de Disney Channel, y la cara de esta niña se usa a menudo como sinónimo de “Y yo qué se” 6. Intentando aguantar un pedo junto a una chica guapa en clase (Michael McGee) Esta foto se subió a Reddit en 2014, con ese mismo título. Hacerse famoso en internet le pareció muy bien, pero si lo hubiera sabidi le habría puesto copyright a la foto para ganar dinero. 7. Blake Boston Esta foto apareció en Reddit en 2011, y el retratado afirma que lo hizo su madre y que no se arrepiente de nada. 8. Hombre absurdamente fotogénico (Zeddie Smith) Se encontraba corriendo la carrera de Cooper River Bridge en 2012 cuando le hicieron la foto. Le parece un honor ser un meme tan positivo en internet. 9. Ermahgerd (Maggie Goldenberger) “Esta foto surgió en 2012, pero es de cuando la retratada estaba en 4º o 5º curso. Significa “Oh dios mío”. 10. Problemas del primer mundo (Silvia Bottini) La mujer de este meme es en realidad una premiada actriz italiana 11. Kyle Craven La foto fue publicada por 1ª vez en 2012 por un amigo suyo con el texto “Hace el exámen de conducir y recibe su primera multa por conducción bajo la influencia de sustancias”. Es un meme que representa la mala suerte. 12. Drew Scanlon Este famoso GIF viene de un streaming en vivo de 2013, cuando era productor de vídeo en la web Giant Bomb. Uno de sus compañeros dijo algo inesperado y su reacción fue parpadear así. 13. Doge En 2010, una profesora de guardería japonesa publicó fotos de su perro adoptado Kabosu poniendo distintas caras. Una de ellas se convirtió en la primera imagen de “doge”. 14. Grumpy Cat Grumpy Cat o Gato Gruñón es el mote que recibió este gato llamado Tardar Sauce tras publicarse sus fotos con cara molesta en Reddit en 2012. 15. Barista hipster (Dustin Mattson) Fue publicado por primera vez en 2011, y le pareció descorazonador por un lado, al reírse de los baristas, y por otro, querer trabajar más duro en su trabajo. Y no, no encaja con la mayoría de las bromas que se hacen respecto al barista hipster.

          Dead Cells: sviluppatori al lavoro per correggere i problemi tecnici su Switch      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Chi sta giocando a Dead Cells su Nintendo Switch si sarà sicuramente accorto dei tutt’altro che trascurabili problemi tecnici che affliggono questa versione del gioco, soprattutto i frequenti cali di frame rate che rendono meno fluida l’esperienza complessiva. Intervenendo su Reddit, un esponente di Motion Twin ha fatto sapere che la priorità del team di sviluppo è la correzione di queste criticità; tuttavia hanno affermato che ogni piccolo intervento è stato già portato avanti prima della release, quindi bisognerà intervenire in maniera massiccia sul codice di gioco per sbarazzarsi del tutto dei problemi più gravi. Un’operazione del genere, purtroppo, potrebbe richiedere diverse settimane, se non mesi, per questo Motion Twin spera di pubblicare una corposa patch correttiva entro il mese di novembre, ma realisticamente potrebbe volerci molto più tempo. Per il momento, quindi, in caso abbiate intenzione di giocarci su Nintendo Switch dovrete accontentarvi di questa versione di Dead Cells, con tutti i problemi che si porta dietro.

If you read the patch notes ( also written in markdown ) for PowerShell Core 6.1.0 Preview 4 you’ll find the exciting new news! Under the “General Cmdlet Updates and Fixes” section there is a bullet for “ Add Markdown rendering Cmdlets ( #6926 ) ”. Let’s take a look!

Table of Contents PowerShell (Core) and Markdown How to Use It

At the time of writing, you will need to have installed PowerShell Core 6.1.0 Preview 4 . If you stumble on this blog in the future and are running a minimum of PowerShell Core 6.1.x this functionality should be available to you though it’s possible the syntax could have changed.


PowerShell and Markdown

Good ol’ Get-Command should tell you what markdown related commands are available.

Get-Command -Noun Markdown*

You can see we have 4 commands available for some markdown action.


PowerShell and Markdown

There are two ways you can use this new markdown functionality in PowerShell. Using Show-Markdown you can take markdown and display it as a VT100 encoded string right in the console. Alternatively you can use Show-Markdown to display a markdown file in a web browser.

Viewing the Markdown In the Console

To parse and view markdown in the comfort of your PowerShell console you can run the following commands, to specify a markdown file, and then display it in the console. Using this blog post as an example your commands would look like the following.

ConvertFrom-Markdown -Path '.\_posts\2018-8-1-PowerShell-Markdown.md' -AsVT100EncodedString | Show-Markdown

When you run this it will yield results similar to the gif below.


PowerShell and Markdown

Pretty cool, you can take raw markdown, and view it in a slightly less jarring way in your PowerShell console. This could be useful when there is a time when you need to work on a system without a Desktop environment, or just for console diehards who want to do as much in a console as possible.

In the Browser

You alternatively can view the parsed markdown in the browser.

ConvertFrom-Markdown -Path '.\_posts\2018-8-1-PowerShell-Markdown.md' | Show-Markdown -UseBrowser
PowerShell and Markdown

Not the prettiest markdown rendering, but it gets the job done. Note that it will use your systems default browser, in this example Google Chrome.

Changing the Console Colors

You may want to change the default colors that are used in the console display.

Back to console land for a minute, what the cuss is VT100? I am admittedly not an expert, like, at all. I do know ANSI/VT100 enabled consoles/terminal emulators are able to display colored text. To see this, go ahead and run Get-MarkdownOption .


PowerShell and Markdown

You’ll see that you have different markdown elements like Header1-6, Code, Link, Image, etc. Each has an associated ANSI/VT100 escape code which will determine its color and formatting in the PowerShell console. You can learn more about these escape sequences here if you’re interested.

So, now you know how to see what the console colors will be by default, and have a nice link to a reference sheet of what to change them to if you want.

Let’s say you want to change ‘Header2’ so that it is something other than yellow. You can do that by using Set-MarkdownOption . To make it underlined green you can use [4;32m Set-MarkdownOption -Header2Color '[4;32m'

You can preview your changes again with Get-MarkdownOption


PowerShell and Markdown

There you have it, next time you display a markdown document in your console, Header2 will be green underlined text rather than the original yellow.

Quirks

NOTE!This is a preview edition of PowerShell with this functionality. With that said, here are some quirks.

Quirk 1 - Setting Persistance

The Set-MarkdownOption changes don’t persist. If you change some colors, close the console and then start it back up the colors reset to the defaults. This can be fixed by possible scripting your preferences to be set on load of your PowerShell profile. Alternatively you can just change them when needed.

I am not sure if this is by design or the developer didn’t want to worry about saving user preferences and where to save them across different operating systems, but either way, just be aware of it.

Quirk 2 - ConvertFrom-Markdown Console Text Issue

If you run the ConvertFrom-Markdown without piping into Show-Markdown your console formatting gets weird… You can see below, a lot of my text became Header2-ish, yellow and underlined.


PowerShell and Markdown
Quirk 3 - General Usage

If you hit the footnote in the article you might have already saw that the general usage is kind of confusing and a lot of folks tend to think so as well. You can follow the discussion on Github

Certify'em is one of my favorite Google Forms Add-ons. With Certify'em activated you can automatically issue certificates to students when they get a passing (or better) score on a quiz in Google Forms. You can see a demonstration of how it works right here.

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

          使用MDM软件的iPhone黑客攻击活动比以前更为广泛      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
两周前首次亮相的印度高度针对性的移动恶意软件广告系列已被发现是针对多种平台的广泛广告系列的一部分,包括Windows设备,也可能是Android。 正如我们在上一篇文章中所报道的那样,本月早些时候,Talos威胁情报部门的研究人员发现一群印度黑客滥用移动设备管理(MDM)服务劫持并监视印度一些有针对性的iPhone用户。 自2015年8月开始运营以来,已发现攻击者滥用MDM服务将恶意版本的合法应用程序(包括Telegram,WhatsApp和PrayTime)远程安装到目标iPhone上。 这些经过修改的应用程序旨在暗中监视iOS用户,并从第三方聊天应用程序窃取他们的实时位置,短信,联系人,照片和私人消息。 在他们正在进行的调查中,Talos研究人员发现了一个新的MDM基础设施和几个恶意二进制文件 – 旨在针对运行Microsoft Windows操作系统的受害者 – 托管在之前广告系列中使用的相同基础架构上。 Ios-update-whatsapp [。] com(新) Wpitcher [。] COM Ios-certificate-update.com 研究人员在今天发表的博客文章中表示,“我们知道MDM和Windows服务在2018年5月在同一台C2服务器上运行。” “目前有些C2服务器仍处于运行状态.Apache设置非常具体,与恶意IPA应用程序的Apache设置完美匹配。” 除此之外,研究人员还发现了一些潜在的相似之处,将此活动与一个名为“Bahamut”的老黑客组织联系在一起,该组织是一名先前的威胁演员,之前使用与最新iOS恶意软件活动中使用的类似MDM技术的Android设备。 新确定的MDM基础设施于2018年1月创建,今年1月至3月使用,针对两个印度设备和一个位于卡塔尔的英国电话号码。 根据研究人员的说法,Bahamut还在他们的Android恶意软件活动中针对类似的卡塔尔个人,Bellingcat在博客文章中对此进行了详细介绍  。 研究人员表示,“Bahamut与我们之前发布的一篇恶意iOS应用程序共享了一个域名。” “我们发现的新MDM平台与中东目标有类似的受害者,即卡塔尔,使用LycaMobile发布的英国手机号码.Bahamut在竞选期间针对类似的卡塔尔个人。” 除了分发具有恶意功能的修改过的Telegram和WhatsApp应用程序外,新发现的服务器还分发修改后的Safari浏览器版本和IMO视频聊天应用程序,以窃取受害者的更多个人信息。 攻击者使用恶意Safari浏览器窃取登录凭据 根据研究人员的说法,恶意Safari浏览器已预先配置为自动泄露用户的用户名和密码,用于各种其他Web服务,Yahoo,Rediff,Amazon,Google,Reddit,Baidu,ProtonMail,Zoho,Tutanota和更多。 “恶意软件持续监控网页,在用户输入用户名和密码时查找包含用户名和密码的HTML表单字段以窃取凭据。检查的HTML字段的名称将与域名一起嵌入到应用程序中,”研究员说。 恶意浏览器包含三个恶意插件 – 添加书签,添加到收藏夹和添加到阅读列表 – 就像其他应用程序一样,将被盗数据发送到远程攻击者控制的服务器。 目前还不清楚是谁支持该活动,谁是该活动的目标,以及攻击背后的动机是什么,但技术要素表明攻击者是在印度运营,并且资金充足。 研究人员表示,那些感染此类恶意软件的人需要注册他们的设备,这意味着“他们应该随时注意以避免意外登记”。 避免成为此类攻击的受害者的最佳方法是始终从官方应用商店下载应用。 *本文作者:抗生素1209,转载请注明来自Freebuf.COM

La nostra cattiva salute è molto “salutare” per l’industria farmaceutica

di Anita Botwin
"Buona salute? Cattiva salute? Tutto dipende dal punto di vista. Dal punto di vista della grande industria farmaceutica, la cattiva salute è molto salutare". (Eduardo Galeano)
Qualche tempo fa ho visto un documentario realizzato dall'ONG "Salud Por Derecho" che parlava dei fallimenti dell'attuale sistema di ricerca, sviluppo e innovazione dei farmaci. Quando, invece, sono uscita dalla sala di proiezione di "Houston abbiamo un problema", il documentario che non vogliono che tu veda, un misto di rabbia e tristezza mi ha invaso. Sapevo allora che la mia malattia autoimmune, come quella di molte altre persone, sarebbe stata cronica per il resto della mia vita. Non ci sarebbe stata una cura e se ce ne fosse stata una, non sarebbe stata redditizia per il mostro farmaceutico. Curare le malattie non è redditizio per l'industria farmaceutica e i pazienti non sono altro che dollari nelle tasche dei lupi di Wall Street.
Il mercato farmaceutico supera i profitti delle vendite di armi o delle telecomunicazioni: per ogni dollaro investito nella produzione di un farmaco, se ne ottengono mille di profitti...

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Quote: "A portion of North Baton Rouge was blocked off due to multiple reports of a suspicious odor in the air Monday night. Reports of the odor began around 7:45 p.m. Monday evening. At 10:20 p.m., a spokesperson with the Baton Rouge Fire Department said the smell was dissipating, but response teams were unable to find the source. Entergy says crews searched in the area near Shelley Street and Evangeline Street, and while there was an odor in the air, it's not from gas."

Fire and Emergency in Napier were called just before 10.15am and three appliances went to the scene which centred around Niven St, Edmundsen St, Wakefield St and Thorn Place. Cordons were set up and traffic diverted while staff and occupants of buildings in the immediate area were evacuated, including a large number from the Quality Bakers in Niven St. Using gas detectors crews moved through the area but at the end of a detailed search of buildings and sites came up with nothing."

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/california-wildfires-property-insurers-cancel-policies-because-of-risk/
http://twitter.com/CBSNews/status/1026668775070949376

Quote: "Residents of U.S. towns damaged by wildfires may need to prepare for another repercussion: insurers that decide to cancel policies because of increased risks from more frequent fires. Facing mounting losses, some property insurers are pulling back from selling policies in California and other western states where wildfire risk is elevated. In California alone, damages had mounted to at least $12 billion by early 2018, while the state's Carr fire likely added another $1.5 billion in insured losses."

http://fox40.com/2018/07/29/live-blog-mendocino-complex-fire/

Quote: "Two wildfires blazing in California, known as the Mendocino Complex fire, became the largest recorded in state history on Monday, crossing a grim milestone. The fire, in Colusa, Lake and Mendocino counties, has killed two people and burned almost 283,800 acres as of Monday. It has destroyed at least 143 structures, including 75 homes, according to Cal Fire officials. More than 9,000 structures remain under threat. The Mendocino complex fires, which encompass an area the size of Los Angeles, surpassed the Thomas wildfire in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, which burned 281,893 acres last year."

Quote: "We're looking at over 629,000 acres of ground and vegetation burned in California since January 1 of this year. Last year, same period of time, 223,000 acres..."

Note: So wildfires are burning at almost triple the rate of last year, and last year was itself a record-setting year. From the full hypothesis: "Probably the most noticeable effect will be fires and explosions sweeping across the planet."

Anyone know of any alternative canonical source of the bzip2 releases, or indeed any way to contact the bzip2 maintainers (since they had bzip.org email addresses, which no longer work). I have been previously unsuccessful in submitting patches to them (no mailing list, and private email went unanswered); but since this is an important package it would be nice to be sure it's kept available.

Thanks, all.

In England, we have the expression ‘Carrying coals to Newcastle’ – a pointless action, since the place in question already has a bountiful supply. In Spain, they take oranges to Valencia and in Portugal, honey to a bee-keeper. If not quite as plentiful as oranges or honey, publishers’ lists are filled with beginner violin repertoire – what possible motivation could there be to write and publish more?

          Teach2Learn : gamifying education to gather training data for natural language processing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Teach2Learn : gamifying education to gather training data for natural language processing O'Sullivan, John J. D Teach2Learn is a website which crowd-sources the problem of labeling natural text samples using gamified education as an incentive. Students assign labels to text samples from an unlabeled data set, thereby teaching superised machine learning algorithms how to interpret new samples. In return, students can learn how that algorithm works by unlocking lessons written by researchers. This aligns the incentives of researchers and learners to help both achieve their goals. The application used current best practices in gamification to create a motivating structure around that labeling task. Testing showed that 27.7% of the user base (5/18 users) engaged with the content and labeled enough samples to unlock all of the lessons, suggesting that learning modules are sufficient motivation for the right users. Attempts to grow the platform through paid social media advertising were unsuccessful, likely because users aren't looking for a class when they browse those sites. Unpaid posts on subreddits discussing related topics, where users were more likely to be searching for learning opportunities, were more successful. Future research should seek users through comparable sites and explore how Teach2Learn can be used as an additional learning resource in classrooms. Thesis: M. Eng., Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, 2017.; Cataloged from PDF version of thesis.; Includes bibliographical references (pages 65-66).

          La manovra: via il bonus da 80 euro Arriva la «quota 100» alle pensioni      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Il ministro del Tesoro rivela la manovra economica d’autunno che interesserà le famiglie: si punta su reddito e flat tax.

Fisco più leggero, sostegno al reddito mentre si cerca lavoro, spinta agli investimenti. Le decisioni politiche sono rimandate a settembre ma comincia a prendere forma, nelle sue linee generali, la prima manovra del governo gialloverde, che potrebbe contenere anche un primo intervento sulle pensioni e che si attesterebbe, al momento poco sopra i 25 miliardi. Le risorse arriveranno dalla spending review e, probabilmente, anche dalla «pace fiscale», da legare all’introduzione graduale della flat tax. Il ministro dell’Economia, Giovanni Tria, fa sapere in un’intervista al «Sole 24 Ore» che al ministero si lavora su una serie di possibili interventi fiscali per avviare la riforma dell’Irpef anche per le persone fisiche, finanziandola con un maxi-riordino dei bonus fiscali che potrà comprendere anche il bonus Renzi da 80 euro.

In un contesto di rallentamento della crescita (nella nota di aggiornamento al Def si dovrebbe indicare 1,2% anziché 1,5% per il 2018 e 1-1,1% per il 2019), il governo punta a ridurre lo sforzo sui conti richiesto dalle regole Ue per poter finanziare la legge di Bilancio in deficit per 10-11 miliardi, confidando nel buon esito del dialogo con Bruxelles. Ecco i «pilastri della manovra», che sarà varata in autunno dopo la nota di aggiornamento al Def di fine settembre.

- CLAUSOLE IVA PER 12,4 MILIARDI: il primo impegno che il governo dovrebbe mantenere è quello di evitare l’aumento dell’Iva che, senza interventi, da gennaio porterebbe l’aliquota ordinaria dal 22% al 24,2% e quella agevolata dal 10% all’11,5%.

Tutte le simulazioni in corso, ha assicurato il ministro Giovanni Tria, si basano sulla sterilizzazione per intero delle clausole. Qualche intervento di riordino, ha ammesso Tria, ci potrebbe essere creando «piccoli aumenti di gettito e qualche riduzione, ma con volumi assolutamente marginali».

- REDDITO DI CITTADINANZA, CENTRI IMPIEGO: come indicato nel contratto di governo, per il sostegno al reddito si partirà dalla riforma dei centri per l’impiego (costo stimato 2 miliardi) che si cercherà di finanziare anche con il Fondo sociale Ue. Il nuovo strumento, che dovrebbe essere introdotto con una proposta di legge ad hoc, parallelo alla manovra, ingloberà vari strumenti, compreso il reddito di inclusione.

- FLAT TAX, SI PARTE DA MICRO-IMPRESE: avvio dal 2019 con un ampliamento della platea dell’attuale regime forfettario al 15% per le partite Iva, portando le soglie di ricavi da 30-50mila euro a 65mila euro. Obiettivo, abbassare le tasse a regime per 1,7 miliardi per oltre un milione di piccole e piccolissime imprese. Si starebbe valutando anche la possibilità di far salire a 100mila euro la soglia, in un secondo momento e previo via libera Ue. La tassa piatta sostituisce Iva, Irpef, Irap e tasse locali e consente semplificazioni burocratiche.

- PRIMA REVISIONE TAX EXPENDITURES: per finanziare la tassa piatta si potrebbe mettere mano agli sconti fiscali, compresi quelli per le imprese. Il progetto però, politicamente molto delicato e finora sempre rimandato, dovrebbe essere legato all’intervento generale sul sistema fiscale, con l’introduzione della dual tax (al 15% e al 20%) anche per le famiglie che potrebbe essere già impostata per partire dall’anno d’imposta 2020. Le agevolazioni fiscali, indicate nell’ultimo rapporto allegato alla nota al Def 2017, erano 468.

- SBLOCCO PATTO E REGOLE SEMPLICI PER INVESTIMENTI: l’idea, perseguita già negli ultimi anni, è quella di sbloccare le risorse già a bilancio per fare avanzare le piccole opere pubbliche e di proseguire con lo sblocco (probabilmente per un altro miliardo) degli avanzi di bilancio di Comuni ed enti locali. Prevista anche una semplificazione delle regole a partire da una revisione del codice appalti.

- PER LE IMPRESE RESTANO SUPER E IPERAMMORTAMENTO: in cantiere la riconferma delle due misure (la prima al 130% e la seconda al 250%), ricomprese nel piano Impresa 4.0, per chi rinnova macchinari o software. Si stanno studiando anche altri meccanismi per stimolare gli investimenti privati - PENSIONI, SI GUARDA A QUOTA 100: potrebbe arrivare una prima revisione della legge Fornero, con l’introduzione di «quota 100» tra età (probabile minimo 64 anni) e contributi. La misura, con paletti, costerebbe circa 4 miliardi. Più difficile ’quota 41’, cioè la possibilità di uscire a qualunque età con 41 anni e mezzo di contributi.

- LAVORO, NUOVI INCENTIVI PER LE ASSUNZIONI STABILI: dopo la proroga per altri 2 anni del vecchio bonus assunzioni under 35 (con 300 milioni in 3 anni) il governo punta ad altri sconti per rendere più conveniente il contratto a tempo indeterminato.

- SPENDING REVIEW: alle amministrazioni verrà chiesto un nuovo sforzo che, nel caso dei ministeri, dovrebbe superare 1 miliardo l’anno di tagli chiesto lo scorso anno. Si dovrebbe procedere con un «congelamento» della spesa corrente, eccezione fatta per sanità, scuola e ricerca.

- PACE FISCALE: il «saldo e stralcio» riguarderà i piccoli debitori (possibile entro i 100mila euro) e non i grandi evasori. Si tratterà di un pagamento forfait per chiudere il contenzioso con il fisco. I dettagli sono ancora in via di definizione per evitare sovrapposizioni con la rottamazione.

L’obiettivo di gettito parte da circa 3,5 miliardi.

          Sonnet Unveils New Echo 11 Thunderbolt 3 Dock Ideal for the New MacBook Pro      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Sonnet has announced the release of a new Echo 11 Thunderbolt 3 dock that can connect multiple peripheral devices to your Mac through an included Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable.

Through the same cable, the Echo 11 delivers up to 87 watts to charge and power compatible notebook computers, such as the MacBook Pro 15-inch computer, allowing users to leave their computer’s power adapter packed away when connected to the dock.

“There are many Thunderbolt docks on the market today that scrimp on USB ports or power delivery, or both,” said Robert Farnsworth, CEO of Sonnet Technologies. “The Echo 11 Thunderbolt 3 Dock uniquely offers a full array of ports, including five USB 3.0 ports plus the 87 watts of power delivery that a MacBook Pro 15-inch needs to operate and charge — all at a value price.”

          Google Pixel 3 XL Production Unit Leaks [Video]      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Photos and video of what appears to be a production unit Google Pixel 3 XL have been leaked online, reports AndroidPolice. Images of the device were shared by a Ukrainian tech blogger on Telegram with the smartphone being described as a 'pre-release version'.

On-screen content seems to confirm that we're looking at a Pixel 3 XL running Android 9 with an 8-core Qualcomm processor — that we assume is the Snapdragon 845 — and an Adreno 630 GPU. A resolution of 1440x2960 with a pixel density of 494 is also stated, and there's further confirmation that the device will have just 4GB of RAM.

          More Hands-On Video With Purported 2018 iPhone Dummy Models      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


More hands-on video with dummy models purportedly based on schematics for the rumored 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.5-inch iPhone models have been posted online.

No one is quite sure what Apple will call these three models so vloggers have been using different names to describe the same model.

Marques Brownlee writes, "iPhone 9? iPhone X Plus? iPhone Xs? iPhone 11? iPhone 2019? The new iPhone? We don't know the name... but we know what it'll look like!"

          AFC2 Released With Support for Devices Jailbroken Using Electra and Meridian      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Cannathea has announced the release of Apple File Conduit 2 (AFC2) for arm64 devices running KPP-less jailbreaks like Electra or Meridian. Cannathea is a development team consisting of ichitaso, Karen/あけみ, and Hiraku Wang.

The Cannathea release of AFC2 is a modified version of saurik's original AFC2 code that downloads and installs an arm64 copy of afcd (required on iOS 11 and above) straight from Apple, and then automatically grants it the necessary 'platform-application' entitlement required for functionality on KPPLess jailbreaks (like Electra and Meridian). This makes the package legal since it does not redistribute copyright Apple binaries.

AFC2 lets you access your entire filesystem over USB. Here is saurik's original explanation of what AFC2 is...

          SpierOak ผู้ให้บริการสำรองไฟล์เปลี่ยนประกาศว่าไม่เคยให้ข้อมูลรัฐบาลด้วยคำสั่งลับ เปลี่ยนเป็นรายงานความโปร่งใส คาดถูกสั่งให้ส่งข้อมูล      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

SpiderOak ผู้ให้บริการสำรองไฟล์ เปลี่ยนประกาศไม่เคยให้ข้อมูลรัฐบาล (warrant canary) แล้วแทนที่ด้วยรายงานความโปร่งใส (transparency report) แทน

warrant canary เป็นเทคนิคของบริษัทไอทีที่ไม่เห็นด้วยกับการขอข้อมูลของรัฐบาลสหรัฐฯ ที่อาศัยการส่งคำสั่งลับที่บริษัทที่ได้รับไม่สามารถเปิดเผยข้อมูลให้กับผู้อื่น รวมถึงเจ้าของข้อมูลที่รัฐบาลร้องขอได้ กระบวนการคือการประกาศว่า "ตอนนี้ยังไม่ถูกขอข้อมูล" แล้วลบประกาศออกเมื่อถูกขอข้อมูลโดยไม่ต้องประกาศเพิ่มเติมอีก

ก่อนหน้านี้ SpiderOak เปิดประกาศนี้ไว้บนเว็บและเซ็นลายเซ็นดิจิตอลใหม่ทุก 6 เดือนเพื่อยืนยันว่ายังไม่ได้รับคำสั่งลับให้ส่งข้อมูล และเมื่อช่วงสุดสัปดาห์ที่ผ่านมาก็ลบประกาศออกไปช่วงหนึ่ง และประกาศกลับขึ้นมาใหม่โดยระบุว่าทีมงานได้ไตร่ตรองแล้วว่าจะเปลี่ยนแนวทางเป็นการออกรายงานความโปร่งใสแทน

แม้จะมีเหตุผลประกอบ แต่ก็คาดได้ว่า SpiderOak อาจจะถูกสั่งให้ส่งข้อมูลผู้ใช้ไปแล้ว และตัว warrant canary ก็ทำหน้าที่ของมันเสร็จสิ้นเรียบร้อยแล้ว หลังจากนี้เป็นหน้าที่ของรายงานความโปร่งใสที่จะรายงานปริมาณการขอข้อมูลออกมาเป็นช่วงๆ (และในกรณีสหรัฐฯ ไม่สามารถรายงานตัวเลขจำนวนคำสั่งได้ตรงๆ ต้องบอกเป็นช่วงเท่านั้น)

อีกบริษัทที่เคยลบ warrant canary คือ Reddit

          Mum's Kitchen      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Today I have some photos of my mum's kitchen to share.  There is a bit of nostalgia involved in some of the old items that I remember from my childhood and just some sharing what is like my second kitchen.  Regular readers will have caught glimpses from time to time.  I found some photos I took a few years ago and have noticed that the fridge  and oven are both updated to a more modern silver now but otherwise not too much has changed.

The kitchen my mum has is not the one I grew up with.  In fact most of my childhood was in different houses but I did spend a few years in this house before I moved out.  Back then it was a bright blue kitchen with the table in the middle, and 4 doors, including a door to a scullery where the sink was and a door to a large walk in pantry.  Great for hide and seek.  Less good for socialising.  While the kitchen was the heart of the house, doing the dishes and cooking could be lonely when everyone else decided to watch the telly.  The only part of the kitchen that was kept when my parents did a renovation about 10 years ago was the wood stove.  It doesn't get used heaps but looks lovey and is fun to use occasionally.  The oven used to be beside the wood stove where the cupboard now is.

In this corner you will see some of the things that makes my mum happy: chooks (hens), music and tea.  Mind you this is her teabag collection for visitors.  She drinks proper loose leaf tea brewed in a teapot.

The current pantry is smaller than the old one.  It isn't big enough any more to have a window but is very handy between the oven and the sink.  It always has dried biscuits (crackers) and usually some home baking, just as it did through my childhood.

We have always had calendars.  My mum often exchanges calendars as gifts with people overseas.  When I was younger my dad used to recycle calendars.  You know how every so many years the days and dates will match up the same.  So as a teenager I sometimes used to see calendars that had my kindergarten noted on them.  It was very odd.  But I miss it sometimes.

My mum loves chooks.  When we were young and lived in the country there was a chookhouse in the backyard.  When we moved to Geelong my mum seemed determined not to have chooks and one year my dad brought her some.  Now she loves them.  They are great for scraps and eggs.

There are a lot of chooks above the mantelpiece.  Mum buys little chooks as souvenirs or is given them as presents.

And of course there are quite a few cups featuring chooks.

My mum has lots of nice crockery.  This teaset is special because it belonged to her mum.

This dish probably could be called retro as my mum has had it ever since I can remember.  I think she might have used it for casseroles but I remember it being used for desserts like apple sponge, apple crumble and chocolate pudding.  The pomegranates are from the garden.

My mum still keeps the icing sugar in the same old coffee jar she has had ever since I can remember.  The top can be a bit difficult to undo but it has given great service.  (According to this discussion Pablo Instant Coffee was horrible.  The jar is quite large and it seems odd for a couple who were never big coffee drinkers.)

I love the thrift in my mum keeping kitchen utensils for so long.  She was given things for her 21st birthday and her wedding and then bought some when they moved out and a lot of this was not replaced for a long time.  This old plastic lemon juicer dates back to my childhood and I have a feeling it is now left the kitchen in disgrace as it had got old and bendy.

Another wonky old piece that goes back to childhood is this fruitbowl.  Looking back I admire my mum for keeping it shiny as well as full of fruit.  It looks a little medieval, which our kitchen never was.  I think this also has gone out, never to return.

We had these white plastic measuring cups all through my childhood.  I helped with lots of baking so I used these a lot.  In the background you can see some of the more modern measuring cups my mum has purchased more recently.

This spoon was a favourite when we were little.  The little dog at the top was called Susie.  We also had a dog called Susie, who my mum ran over while rushing to the school sports on a hot day when the dog was sleeping in the shade under the car.  Then we have a sister called Susie.  I am never sure which Susie came first but we might have told my sister once or twice that she was named after a dog!  (Sorry Susie.)
