Quais seus limites? Até onde você aceita ceder, se calar, não levar em conta, fingir que não viu, que não leu, que não se importa, que não se incomodou para não desfazer a amizade?
Qual o seu limite?
Não estou sendo muito clara, né? Vamos papear e eu explico melhor o que ando pensando faz alguns anos, desde que rede social se tornou cabo (de guerra) eleitoral, de ideologias, de posicionamento, de opção religiosa, etc...

Daqui há exatos 2 meses, no dia 07 de outubro deste ano, mais ou menos na hora em que escrevo esse post, muito provavelmente nós saberemos quem será o próximo presidente do Brasil, ou quem serão os 2 candidatos que disputarão o 2º turno.
Escrevo esse texto hoje, dia 7 de agosto, antes da guerra que vai ser a campanha política pegar fogo. Eu sei que vai. Muitas brigas vão acontecer, muita coisa será dita, muitas mágoas vão surgir e muitas pessoas descobrirão quem são seus amigos e seus vizinhos, o que de fato eles pensam, o que escondem debaixo da civilidade de todo dia...
Eu, em geral, me esforço pra não me meter em treta. Primeiro porque quero paz nessa vida, sou daquelas pessoas que se esforçam pra viver bem com todo mundo, e por isso, na maioria das vezes, eu me calo, deixo pra lá.
E também por preguiça mesmo. Que me importa, eu penso... no que vai afetar minha vida? O mundo pode passar sem que minha opinião seja conhecida, afinal quem sou eu na fila do pão? E tem coisa que dá uma preguiça enorme discutir, especialmente com certo tipo de interlocutores que se recusam a ver que toda questão tem mais de 1 lado...

Mas eu disse em geral, porque tem alguns pontos que, pra mim, são determinantes na decisão de continuar ou não tendo contato (ainda que virtual) com uma pessoa.
Vou exemplificar com algo simples de explicar: eu amo cachorros.
Se a pessoa ama também, já ganha minha atenção.
Se cuida, se posta foto, se demonstra respeito e carinho, ganha meu coração e por causa disso eu sou capaz de "perdoar" muita coisa, sou capaz de relevar falas e fatos com os quais eu não concordo e me calar.
Mas se a pessoa maltrata (e pior, se vangloria disso), ofende protetores, é cruel e faz piadinha falando que mata/queima/mutila/joga fora/espanca, aí, meu amigo, pode ser a pessoa mais gentil do mundo comigo, pode ser amante dos livros, pode ser nerd como eu, pode ter milhões de qualidades, pode ser o que for, pra mim não presta, quero distância.
Entendeu?

Meu ponto-limite é esse, não precisa amar mas precisa respeitar os animais e ser incapaz de maldade com eles e com quem os protege. Se não, de mim, não quero perto.
Citei o caso dos cachorros como exemplo, mas tem outros pontos, claro, e não  são negociáveis, e aí é coisa bem pessoal mesmo.
Gente que faz piada ou usa de sarcasmo e/ou ironia com minorias, que é abertamente (ou dá a entender que é, ou apoia quem é) racista, machista naquele nível patológico, gordofóbico, preconceituoso naquele nível doentio e se orgulha disso... eu me afasto porque sei que, cedo ou tarde, vou me estressar.

Gente extremista, seja de direita ou de esquerda, também me afasto porque acho que o bom senso não é extremista.
Sabe aquela pessoa que endeusa um partido político, uma posição ideológica, uma pessoa (Lula, Bolsonaro, e afins), uma denominação religiosa  ou um movimento? E que coloca todos os outros na mesma sacola do "é lixo"?
Eu me calo, e quando começa a me incomodar, eu me afasto. Deleto. Bloqueio. Dou unfollow. Sem dó.
Pensar diferente de mim, entender diferente, ter vivências diferentes, acho bom e me faz crescer como pessoa.
Já mudei de opinião ao ler ou falar com gente esclarecida, que não repete discurso mas dialoga com calma e sabedoria. Sigo gente muito diferente de mim porque, como disse, quero conhecer todos os lados de uma questão.
Mas replicar discursos que me incomodam, defender ideias que eu considero violentas e/ou agressivas e perigosas, aí eu me afasto porque, como disse antes, eu quero paz.
E eu tenho medo de quem usa palavras gentis enquanto apoia falas e posturas violentas e perigosas...

Estava com esse texto entalado há muito tempo, e como estamos naquele período no qual todo mundo é profundo entendedor de política e sabe com toda a certeza o que é melhor para mim o Brasil quis me precaver e deixar claro que se você tem intenção de defender com unhas e dentes seu político de estimação, seu partido do coração ou sua ideologia mais querida fique à vontade.
Faça isso, o perfil na rede social é seu, o blog, caso tenha, é seu, vai fundo e se joga.
Só não esqueça que as falas que replicamos, a ideologia que defendemos, a opinião com a qual concordamos e o candidato cuja fala e postura apoiamos (claramente ou na entrelinhas) diz muito sobre quem de fato somos.
E é no like que damos, no post que compartilhamos, na fala que reproduzimos e nas pessoas das quais nos declaramos apoiadores que transparece o que de fato vai em nosso coração...

Allan International Holdings is a holding company based in Hong Kong that specializes in constructing household electrical appliances. It drew my eye with its low P/E (6.35), relatively high yield (6.15%), and rock-solid financial position.
 
AIH has virtually no debt and a cash balance of 332M HKD as of the interim report (Sep 2010). The company also has a recent record of positive free cash flow, so it has been able to fund its growth internally without needing to go to the capital markets. Both are good signs about the company’s ability to withstand another severe downturn, as is its strong performance during the last crisis.
 
Management has a significant stake in the company (44%) and seems to avoid any equity dilution. The family’s been running it for decades and it feels unlikely that they would suddenly put that at risk to grab a quick profit. Given the size of their stake and the length of their involvement it’s fair to say that their interests are aligned with outside shareholders.
 
So, why’s it so cheap? I see a few issues that might be putting off investors. There’s a lot of exposure to Europe, currency and commodity movements are squeezing margins, and receivables are way up as of the interim report.
 
I think that exposure to Europe is the least of AIH’s problems. Sales in Europe accounted for about 50% of FY2010 sales volume, so it is definitely the primary geographic region, but sales there held reasonably steady even during the financial crisis. Sales are invoiced in dollars, so the weak dollar ought to help sales, and national debt crises probably won't prevent European consumers from replacing their blenders. It’s probably a short-term concern at most.
 
Margins will probably be a bigger issue. Gross margin is currently at a five-year high (possibly longer since I only went back five years) but is already creeping down towards the historical average. I’m not going to try to predict the direction/magnitude of commodity price changes over the next year or two, but to be on the safe side it would make sense to assume that gross margin would be at or below the level of 2008 (lowest of the past five years). Applying that assumption to TTM earnings basically cuts them in half and results in an adjusted P/E of 13.4.
 
The real issue comes from the growth of receivables. Receivables were way up at the interim mark and let to the company burning a lot of cash. A look at previous interim reports shows that mid-year receivable growth is something of a pattern for AIH, but this year’s growth was larger than in previous years and significantly outpaced revenue growth.
 
AIH has very substantial customer concentration (another issue I’m not thrilled about), which makes the receivables issue more serious. Their largest customer accounts for 49% of sales and the top five collectively provide 92% of sales. Since the biggest three customers account for 80% of receivables on average, I’d wait to see the receivables balance decline a bit before jumping in. AIH doesn’t seem to have had any problems with bad receivables during the recession and despite the pile-up receivables also don’t seem to be aging - only a small fraction more are more than 90 days old - but a problem with any of their major customers would result in a a substantial write-down as well as a major decline in future revenue. With that in mind I’ll take a lesson from SKX and steer clear of even potential working capital issues. 
 
Their fiscal year ended March 31, so the annual report ought to be due out soon. That ought to clarify where the receivables issue stands. There is also a growing percentage of finished goods in the inventory. Inventory growth didn’t exceed revenue growth, but I’d like to see that play out a little more as well. Overall it seems like an interesting opportunity and the annual report ought to give a good sense of how serious these issues actually are.

I have followed IndyCar for long enough that I have seen an awful lot of sorry racing, especially back in what many call "the good old days." As fans, we should be thankful for what we have now. Road and or street racing is no longer necessarily a "parade,"and most oval races are far closer than we used to think possible. Is every race a "photo finish?" No, but most are far closer than the old days of Mears winning by a lap or so, or Rutherford or "Uncle" Bobby blowing off the entire field. Back in those times, you could count on your winner coming from 4 or maybe 5 drivers. Unlike NASCAR, where if you bet Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, or Martin Truex, Jr., you've probably got a winner, that's not so anymore. Virtually half the field is capable of winning any given race. Yes, maybe Will Power had the field covered at Indy this year; however, Ed Carpenter was always within a straightaway of catching him. I can remember quite a few years when that wasn't the case. I can't wait for Pocono.
          Drupal Association blog: 2018 Q1 & Q2 Financials Statement Summary      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Our board of directors is responsible for the Drupal Association’s financial health and as part of their duty, they review and then vote to approve monthly financial statements. The board met virtually on July 25, 2018 and voted to approve the Q1 & Q2 2018 financial statements, which can be found here.

Each month we compare our results against the financial KPIs we have set with the advice of our virtual CFO, Summit CPA. These KPIs were set to help us focus on increasing our net income so we can build a stronger cash reserve to ensure the organization’s sustainability.  

Our 2018 Financial KPIs are:

  • Cash Reserve: have a cash balance of 15% of Total Revenue
  • Net Income Profit Margin: end 2018 with a net income profit of 4%
  • Increase our Non-Event Revenue to $1.6M
  • DrupalCon Profit Margin of 27%

As of our June financial statement, which was approved by the board, the organization is tracking well against these KPIs.

Table showing KPI analysis reflecting actual results through June 30, 2018 end of year conservative budget
KPI analysis through June 30 is looking positive for money in the bank, net income, non-event revenue, and event profit margin.

You can see that April was lower than the ideal target, due to missing revenue in a couple of areas. One with DrupalCon Nashville, where ticket sales came in lower than expected, and the second was some hosting contracts coming in later. These contracts will be reflected in future months.

We will monitor all KPIs through the year to ensure we are on track. However, one KPI is now complete: Nashville profit margin. DrupalCon Nashville was forecasted to come in at a net profit of $445K at the close of the conference in April, 2018, or 22%. While training tickets under-performed, resulting in a lower than expected ticket revenue, we still exceeded our net profit goal due to a decrease in expenses and an increase in sponsorship revenue. The final net profit was $481K or 25% which is 2% under the set KPI.  

DrupalCon Nashville Snapshot of costs and revenue
Details for the DrupalCon Nashville forecast and actual income

While we did exceed our net profit forecast, it should be noted that this event did not generate as much for the project as past DrupalCons. This is because Nashville’s cost per attendee was higher than usual due to the location. However, at the time of selecting the venue, it was the best option compared to the other available cities. The Drupal Association continues to seek ways to diversify revenue so we are not so reliant on one event to fund the project.

The overall trend shows Nashville coming in lower than recent DrupalCon North America net income margins

Drupalcon is evolving and we are making changes.  While the programming, speakers, sessions make up the core of DrupalCon, our event staff is retooling and creating more value to serve everyone in the Drupal ecosystem.

We would not be able to do our mission-driven work without the support and contributions of our community. Contributions come in many forms, through the purchase of DrupalCon tickets and event sponsorships, through our Supporters and Members, Drupal.org sponsors, recruiters who post jobs on Drupal Jobs and many other fantastic ways our community supports the Drupal ecosystem. We are deeply grateful for everyone who contributes time, talent, and treasure to move Drupal forward.

Thank you!


          Amazee Labs: Transparent Database Sanitization with GDPR-dump      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Transparent Database Sanitization with GDPR-dump

With GDPR in full effect, sanitization of user data is a fairly hot topic. Here at Amazee we take our clients and our clients’ clients privacy seriously, so we have been investigating several possible approaches to anonymizing data.

In the Drupal world, and the PHP world more generally, there are several options available. Here, though, I’d like to discuss one we think is particularly cool.

Blaize Kaye Tue, 08/07/2018 - 14:12
Transparent Database Sanitization with GDPR-dump

At Amazee Labs’ Global Maintenance, we work with several different projects per day. We move data from our production to staging and dev servers, and from our servers to our local development environments. Especially on legacy systems, site-specific configuration details often exist only in the databases, and even if that weren’t the case, the issues we’re investigating routinely require that we dig into the database as it (more or less) is on the production servers. Anonymization is crucial for our day to day work.

So our considerations here are, how do we balance productivity while keeping things anonymous?

One way of achieving this is to make Anonymization transparent to the developer. Essentially, we want our developers to be able to pull down the live database as it exists at the moment that they pull it down, and have it be anonymized.

How can we achieve this?

Well, one way is to analyse the daily workflow to see if there are any points at which the data has to flow through before it reaches the developer?

It turns out that, if you’re working with mysql, this “final common path” that the data flows through is the mysqldump utility.

If you’re running backups, chances are you’re using mysqldump.

If you’re doing a drush sql-sync there’s a call to mysqldump right at the heart of that process.

Mysqldump is everywhere.

The question is, though, how do we anonymize data using myqldump?

The standard mysqldump binary doesn’t support anonymization of data, and short of writing some kind of plugin, this is a non-starter.

Fortunately for us, Axel Rutz came up with an elegant solution, namely, a drop in replacement for the mysqldump binary, which he called gdpr-dump. A few of us here at Amazee loved what he was doing, and started chipping in.

The central idea is to replace the standard mysqldump with gdpr-dump so that any time the former is called, the latter is called instead.

Once the mysqldump call has been hijacked, so to speak, the first order of business is to make sure that we are actually able to dump the database as expected.

This is where mysqldump-php comes in. It’s the library on which the entire gdpr-dump project is based. It provides a pure PHP implementation of mysqldump as a set of classes. On its own, it simply dumps the database, just as the native mysqldump cli tool does.

A great starting point, but it only gets us part of the way.

What we’ve added is the ability to describe which tables and columns in the database being dumped you would like to anonymize. If, for instance, you have a table describing user data with their names, email, telephone numbers, etc. You can describe the structure of this table to gdpr-dump and it will generate fake, but realistic looking, data using the Faker library.

This requires some upfront work, mapping the tables and columns, but once it is done you’re able to call mysqldump in virtually any context, and it will produce an anonymized version of your database.

There is still a lot of thinking and work to be done, but we think it’s worth investing time in this approach. The fact that it can be used transparently is its most compelling aspect - being able to simply swap out mysqldump with gdpr-dump and have the anonymization work without having to change any of the dependent processes.

If any of this piques your interest and you’re looking for more details about how you might be able to use gdpr-dump in your own workflow, feel free to check out the project (and submit PRs): https://github.com/machbarmacher/gdpr-dump.

Nordhausen is still being touted as a liberated concentration camp even though anyone with half a brain can find information that proves otherwise. Nordhausen according to the Jewish virtual library: https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/soldiers-view-rows-of-nordhausen-corpses RAF Bomber Command Archive 3 April 1945 247 Lancasters and 8 Mosquitos of Nos 1 and 8 Groups to attack what were believed to be military barracks near Nordhausen. Unfortunately, the barracks housed a large number of concentration-camp prisoners and forced workers of many nationalities who worked in a complex of underground tunnels where various secret weapons were made. The camp and the tunnel workshops had been established immediately after Bomber Command attacked the rocket-research establishment at Peenemünde in August 1943. The bombing was accurate and many people in the camp were killed; the exact number is not known. The men working in the tunnels were unhurt. 2 Lancasters lost. http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20070706055121/http://www.raf.mod.uk/bombercommand/apr45.html

The “blue wave” came through Blabbermouth's home state on Tuesday, and Dan Savage, Rich Smith, and Eli Sanders talk about what happened — including some drama Rich got into with local Republicans trying to pull an “enemy of the people” move on his right to report.

They also talk about the Ohio special election, in which there’s a virtual tie between the Democrat and Republican candidates in a district that Republicans would normally win easily. That’s great news for wave-trackers, but: Did the Green Party candidate in this special Ohio election spoil the Dem’s chances of turning a virtual tie into an outright win? Dan has some thoughts.

          #DicaCultural: Casa Fiat de Cultura traz à BH exposição "São Francisco na Arte de Mestres Italianos"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Foto: Museo di Roma / Divulgação.  De 08 de agosto a 21 de outubro, a Casa Fiat de Cultura, em Belo Horizonte (MG), recebe a exposição “São Francisco na Arte de Mestres Italianos”, que reúne 20 pinturas realizadas entre os séculos XV e XVIII. A entrada é gratuita. Séculos se passaram e as artes renascentista e barroca continuam encantando a humanidade. Obras de mestres como Tiziano Vecellio, Perugino, Orazio Gentileschi, Guido Reni, Guercino, Carracci e Cigoli fazem parte de importantes coleções italianas e chegam pela primeira vez ao Brasil.  A curadoria é dos italianos Giovanni Morello, especialista em História da Arte – que idealizou e curou diversas exposições de arte antiga na Itália, no Vaticano e outros países e integra a comissão permanente de tutela dos monumentos históricos e artísticos da Santa Sé – e do professor Stefano Papetti, diretor da Pinacoteca Civica di Ascoli.  A mostra apresenta as fases mais relevantes da representação de São Francisco por meio de obras que se integraram à cultura local de toda uma época e que ainda encontram espaço na cultura ocidental por seus valores artístico, histórico e simbólico.  Proporcionando uma experiência imersiva e única, a mostra também inclui uma sala de Realidade Virtual que vai transportar o visitante da Casa Fiat de Cultura para a Basílica Superior de Assis (1228), na Itália, com o uso de óculos de tecnologia 3D.   Será possível fazer um passeio visual por uma das mais importantes e belas basílicas do país e conhecer obras-primas do pintor italiano Giotto (1267-1337), artista símbolo dos períodos medieval e pré-renascentista. Tradição, arte e tecnologia se encontram nesta exposição.  No dia da abertura, 8 de agosto, o curador Stefano Papetti abre a 8ª edição do ciclo de palestras Quartas Italianas na Casa Fiat de Cultura para falar sobre sobre “A Iconografia de São Francisco na Arte do período Medieval ao Barroco”, das 19h30 às 21h, com tradução simultânea e espaço sujeito à lotação (200 lugares). A Casa Fiat de Cultura também preparou uma programação paralela com diversas atividades desenvolvidas pela equipe do Programa Educativo, tudo com entrada gratuita. O percurso expositivo possibilita ao público visitante acompanhar a evolução da representação iconográfica de São Francisco, o santo católico mais retratado na história da arte, de acordo com o curador Papetti. O simbolismo de Francisco é universal, “isso por causa das ações que seus seguidores vêm fazendo há séculos em favor da evangelização e do progresso social”, explica o curador Morello.  Parte das obras que fazem parte da exposição sobre São Francisco. Foto: Divulgação.  Para o presidente da Casa Fiat de Cultura, José Eduardo de Lima Pereira, “São Francisco chega à Casa Fiat de Cultura com sua grandiosa simplicidade. Homem santo que faz parte da construção da nossa identidade cultural. Em Ouro Preto, antiga capital de Minas Gerais, uma das principais igrejas carrega seu nome e revela toda a riqueza do nosso barroco.  Em Belo Horizonte, um dos seus ícones é a Igrejinha da Pampulha, que de forma ousada imortalizou São Francisco pelas mãos do mestre Portinari. Sua história se faz atual com valores de amor ao próximo, humildade e respeito à natureza. Uma imagem que passou por transformações ao longo da história da arte com obras-primas dos grandes mestres italianos que  os brasileiros poderão apreciar nessa exposição”. Entre as obras, o público conhecerá quadros de grandes mestres do Renascimento e Barroco italianos. Artistas que, em seus ateliês, receberam, ensinaram e influenciaram outros expoentes da história da arte. Perugino, por exemplo, foi o mestre de Rafael Sanzio, e Tiziano teve Tintoretto e Veronese como seguidores.  As pinturas de destaque da mostra são “San Francesco riceve le stimmate” (1570), de Tiziano Vecellio, “San Francesco sorretto da un Angelo” (primeira metade do séc. XVII), de Orazio Gentileschi, “San Francesco confortato da un angelo musicante” (1607-1608), de Guido Reni, que também pintou o estandarte “Francesco riceve le stimmate (frente); San Francesco predica ai confratelli (verso)” (séc. XVII), “San Francesco d’Assisisi e quattro disciplinati” (1499), de Perugino, e “San Francesco riceve le stimmate” (1633), de Guercino.  Segundo o Embaixador da Itália no Brasil, Antonio Bernardini, “há grande satisfação e orgulho em poder oferecer, pela primeira vez, ao público brasileiro uma parte tão rica e importante do tesouro da arte e da história italianas e de compartilhá-la com os muitos admiradores da herança cultural italiana no Brasil. Esta mostra é uma iniciativa inédita e altamente relevante por seu alcance e valor cultural, entre as que realizamos nos últimos anos”. A exposição traz acervos de 15 museus de 7 cidades italianas: Galleria Corsini, Palazzo Barberini, Musei Capitolini, Museo di Roma, Museo Francescano dell’Istituto Storico dei Cappuccini (Roma); Pinacoteca Civica, Sacrestia della...

          Linux on Azure App Service Environment now generally available      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Interested in deploying your Linux or containerized web app in an Azure Virtual Network? The Azure App Service team is excited to announce the general availability of Linux on Azure App Service Environment (ASE), which combines the features from App Service on Linux and App Service Environment. As announced at the time of the public preview release, Linux customers will be able to take advantage of deploying Linux and containerized apps in an App Service Environment, which is ideal for deploying applications into a VNet for secure network access or apps running at a high scale. 

What can I do with Linux on ASE?

With Linux on ASE, you can deploy your Linux web applications into an Azure virtual network (VNet) by bringing your own custom container, or just bring your code by using one of our built-in images.

  • If you want to bring your own custom Docker container, you can bring your image from DockerHub, Azure Container Registry, or your own private registry.
  • If you want to use one of our built-in images, we support many popular stacks, such as Node, PHP, Java, .NET Core, and more to come.

Windows, Linux, and containerized web applications can be deployed into the same ASE, sharing the same VNet. Remember that even though Windows and Linux web apps can be in the same App Service Environment, Windows and Linux web apps must be in separate App Service plans. With Linux on ASE, you will be using the Isolated SKU with Dv2 VMs and additional scaling capabilities (up to 100 total App Service plan instances, between Windows and Linux, in one ASE).

To decide which kind of ASE is the best for your use case, you should think about what kind of IP you want to use to expose the apps hosted in your ASE. Will it be public or private? Depending on whether or not you want an Internet accessible endpoint, there are two different kinds of ASEs that you can create:

  • An external ASE with an Internet accessible endpoint.
  • An internal ASE with a private IP address in the VNet with an internal load balancer (ILB).

Our documentation page provide steps to get started, and more context about how to configure networking for your ASE.

Pricing changes from preview

Effective July 30, 2018, Linux and containerized apps deployed in an App Service Environment have returned to regular App Service on Linux and App Service Environment pricing. The 50 percent discount on the Linux App Service Plan from the public preview has been removed for general availability and is no longer being offered.

New regions/countries added

Since public preview, we have now expanded Linux on ASE to all App Service on Linux’s 20+ regions/countries:

  • Australia East
  • Australia Southeast
  • Brazil South
  • Canada Central
  • Canada East
  • Central India
  • Central US
  • East Asia
  • East US
  • East US 2
  • Japan East
  • Japan West
  • Korea Central
  • Korea South
  • North Central US
  • North Europe
  • South Central US
  • South India
  • Southeast Asia
  • UK South
  • UK West
  • West Central US
  • West Europe
  • West India
  • West US
  • West US 2

How to get started

You can create a Linux Web App into a new ASE by simply creating a new Web App and selecting Linux as the OS (built-in image), selecting Docker (custom container), or creating a new Web App for Containers (custom container).

If you need more detailed instructions, get started with creating your first Linux/containerized Web App into an ASE by following these instructions.

We’d love to hear what you think! Please leave your feedback on Linux on ASE using the Wed Apps forum.

Las redes sociales y contacto emocional


Una noticia reciente en televisión mencionaba que ha habido un aumento de ideas suicidas en jóvenes y adolescentes. Entrevistaban a una trabajadora de un centro de atención telefónica y apoyo psicológico para jóvenes y adolescentes. Con cierta emoción, destacaba el sentimiento de soledad tan profundo que sentían los adolescentes que llamaban: los jóvenes que llamaban decían que no podían hablar con nadie, no tenían a quien contarle sus problemas y eso les hundía en una depresión profunda.

La noticia daba a entender que el sentimiento de soledad entre los jóvenes había aumentado y que por eso aumentaban las llamadas a este tipo de números de atención.

En seguida pensé en la posibilidad (sería solo una hipótesis) de que las nuevas formas de relacionarse entre jóvenes y adolescentes, tan mediadas por las redes sociales, ejercieran un efecto de aislamiento emocional,por el cual perdían los lazos más directos en los que se puede confiar para contar nuestros sentimientos, y como se suele decir, “abrirse”.

Recordé entonces otro vídeo en el que que Risto Mejide entrevista a El Rubius, un Youtuber de éxito. El momento cumbre de la entrevista es cuando el Rubius llora mientras recuerda detalles de su vida personal reciente. Por lo visto, la fama implicaba el acoso de los fans y una mayor dificultad para tener contactos o relaciones más íntimas. Paradójicamente, es ese momento de intimidad televisada lo que le permite abrirse emocionalmente: “no he hablado de esto con nadie”, “nunca me he abierto a nadie”.

Un Youtuber es un buen ejemplo de un usuario intensivo de redes sociales, es alguien que comparte su imagen y sus experiencias en la red, y rentabiliza esa atención de algún modo. Al igual que el Rubius -pero a otra escala- cuando nos mostramos e interactuamos en las redes sociales entramos en un juego de representaciones, de interacciones mediadas por representaciones abstractas de quienes somos.

En este sentido, las redes sociales dan la posibilidad de conectar con realidades estimulantes, aprender y conectar con gente interesante, ser creativos, explorar nuevas formas de ser, iniciar proyectos, etc. Pero lo cierto es que también dejan poco espacio para “llorarle a un amigo”, para contarle tus sentimientos, o simplemente despotricar en confianza sobre problemas personales, profesionales, amorosos o del tipo que sean.

Todo lo que no huela a triunfo, a contacto fresco y desenfadado, a brillantez del momento, a ilusión y a auto-seguridad no cuadra bien en el contexto de las redes sociales y la marca personal. Por eso tiene que ser ocultado o maquillado.

Algunas personas prueban a “llorarle” un poco a sus seguidores o “amigos”, quejándose públicamente de un problema personal o criticando en general aspectos de la sociedad. Eventualmente pueden recibir algunas palabras de apoyo, pero por lo general es un apoyo superficial (virtual…), que se enmarca en un contexto de representaciones espectaculares. Por su parte, los foros de apoyo permiten un mayor soporte emocional, pero que se recibe y procesa a nivel intelectual. Carecen de la “contención” emocional directa que puede proveer un grupo de apoyo o de buenos amigos.

En definitiva, lo digital amplifica la cantidad de informaciones que podemos crear y recibir, a costa de limitar la profundidad del contacto emocional. La “textura” de la relación emocional se filtra en la binaridad de la interacción digital.

En el test proyectivo de Rorschard hay algunas láminas en las que se espera que la persona vea “textura”, como pelo, arrugas, piel o algo similar. Eso se considera un signo de empatía y capacidad conectar emocionalmente con otros. La textura es una proyección visual de la experiencia de contacto emocional.

Los que aplican este test prefieren las láminas impresas que las imágenes digitales, porque la textura y otras proyecciones son más fáciles de ver en el cartón que en una pantalla. Lo digital anula el matiz infinitesimal del formato analógico. O como dicen algunos fotógrafos, “no permite ver el grano”.

No es una cuestión solo visual, en sentido figurado las interacciones virtuales también carecen de esa textura. Solo es posible comunicar aquello que puede ser traducido en información. La comunicación digital está mediada por la representación abstracta (en lenguaje e imágenes) de nuestros pensamientos y sentimientos.

Las mediaciones tecnológicas y culturales también están presentes en la interacción directa (el lenguaje, la ropa, etc.), pero en ellas resulta imposible ocultar la vulnerabilidad del cuerpo con el que interactuamos:los poros de la piel, granos e imperfecciones, el pelo, las arrugas, el olor, la mirada… todo cobra textura y nos damos cuenta -aunque sea inconscientemente- de que el otro también es un cuerpo expuesto al paso del tiempo, del dolor y la muerte.

En las redes tendemos a representarnos como alguien deseable, atractivo, inteligente… siempre apunto para el chiste, la ocurrencia o la brillantez. Y admiramos estos chispazos en otros como si fueran el culmen de la socialidad. Abrazar las redes sociales desde un posicionamiento acrítico implica incorporar las lógicas del espectáculo en nuestras relaciones sociales. Si con los medios de masas el espectáculo servía para legitimar culturalmente el orden social, con los “medios sociales” el espectáculo se convierte en sustituto del mismo sustrato de lo social.

Sin embargo, las más de las veces nuestras vidas están atravesadas por conflictos interpersonales, situaciones de opresión, entornos sociales hostiles, violencia estructural, frustraciones personales, etc. Esa parte de nosotros que sufre las tensiones y limitaciones de la vida es de la que realmente emergen las necesidades de contacto y de relación social. Eso es lo que nos define como seres humanos (o como sujetos conscientes, para ser más amplios) y también lo que nos aporta la potencia crítica para convertirnos en agentes de cambio social.

Vintage Harvest Gold Drawer Organizer-

Here's a perfectly spiffy 1970's flatware tray/organizer in classic harvest gold. It shows signs of general use, but is in very good condition*. This would be perfect for kitchen storage and flatware organization, but it is non specific enough to be very useful just about anywhere, such as a desk or work space. The plastic material is flexible, fairly pliable, and sturdy. 1970's harvest gold goodness, get it while it's hot!

*I just noticed that there is one tiny split that is only detectable when you are flexing it, which you won't be doing while it sits in your drawer holding your stuff. The tiny split in the top corner of the one short section that is running the opposite direction of the rest of them, let's call it the "teaspoon" space. In order to notice this, you would have to be seriously torquing on it, which you won't be. This one super tiny flaw is virtually invisible during normal use, and does not affect the usefulness or attractiveness at all.

This piece measures approximately: 12.5"L x 9.5"W x 1 3/4"D.

Looking for a flatware tray that's more of a sunny golden yellow? Here's a link to another one in my shop, that has a little more of a cheery pop to it:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/273386028/sunny-gold-flatware-tray-golden-yellow?


Yes, I combine shipping.*

*Shipping on this particular item may seem a bit high despite the lightness and flatness of this item. I am in Seattle, and so shipping is more, even for light things going to the Midwest or East coast. I do my best to pick the most reasonable shipping. Sometimes the USPS/Etsy shipping only allows certain options. Please know that if I can save you money on shipping in any possibly way, I will do it, and refund the overage promptly. I do not, and will not make money from shipping.

Buyers- Please read my shipping policies thoroughly before making your purchase. All shipping prices are best estimates. Shipping overage above $2 will be promptly and cheerfully refunded.

International buyers-
- If no shipping rate is given, PLEASE inquire.
- Shipping rate listed is for a non secured/uninsured package. If you would like a secured shipment, that will be an additional $12. Convo me and we can set that up.


Lookin' for some vintage goodness? Swing by the shop!

          New Partnership Designed to Securely Track Precious Metal Trades      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
vNew Partnership Will Track Precious Metals Using Blockchain Technology

Financial technology firm Paxos has formed a partnership with INTL FCStone Inc’s precious metals division. The department will now be using Paxos Confirmation Service — a tool built specifically for the precious metals arena — to instantly automate daily trade confirmations and reduce human error.

Paxos seeks to unlock capital and create value with products that eliminate trade risk, while INTL FCStone provides market intelligence, post-trade services and financial services execution throughout the global financial market. The company boasts over 20,000 customers in approximately 130 different countries and is headquartered in New York City.

Chad Cascarilla is the CEO and co-founder of Paxos. Speaking with Bitcoin Magazine, he said that the precious metals industry is prone to many of the same issues one finds with traditional banking institutions.

“Many of the processes that the precious metals industry uses today to confirm and settle trades are manual and prone to human error,” he explained. “Today, confirmations, metal transfer instructions and wire instructions are sent via email, which is notoriously bad for information security. Email is rarely encrypted, and a simple keystroke error can cause an email to be sent to the wrong recipients, so information is very vulnerable.”

He further stated that the timeframe in which precious metals move or transfer is usually not quick enough. Thus, they’re often at risk of getting lost or falling into the wrong hands:

“Imagine buying something online when the seller uses eBay to negotiate a price and ship the products, but the buyer wants to pay on Venmo. When using different systems, there is no guarantee that the goods and payment will occur between the same parties and within the expected period. Now, imagine this situation for a $50 million trade for gold. This simple conundrum of ‘who pays first and who bears risk’ is a big issue for the precious metals industry.”

Using the Paxos system, INTL FCStone can match trade economics within seconds, thus eliminating several manual tasks and improving operational precision. Trades are quickly captured, and if issues ever arise, they are quickly identified and resolved.

While Paxos is known for its expertise in the blockchain arena, Seth M. Phillips, executive director of Bankchain Precious Metals, explained that blockchain technology is not what’s behind the company’s confirmation service.

“This is the first stage in a broader post-trade platform that Paxos has build for the precious metals space, and latter stages will utilize blockchain,” he said.

“This service is for confirming trades; we will be releasing products in the future that will help with further steps of post-trade processes, including settlement via blockchain.”

Cascarilla further believes Paxos’ technology will be developed to the point that it can be applied to virtually every financial space.

“Our mission is to move any asset, anywhere, in a trusted way,” he said. “We already work with many financial institutions and banks who use our solutions for crypto assets, and this is our first foray into precious metals. We have many more solutions in development for other asset classes including commodities and FX, and we hope to reduce settlement risks and achieve symmetry and synchrony in a highly fragmented world.”

He said that Paxos will be phasing the rollout of the confirmation service to around 75 counterparty pairs in the coming months.

          SoCal Gas Reaches Aliso Canyon Settlement as Costs Top $1 Billion      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

It’s been nearly three years since the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility sprung a massive leak, sickening many, evacuating thousands, and forcing a shutdown of the Los Angeles region’s primary reserve for natural gas to keep homes warm in winter and supply regional power plants at times of peak grid demand.  

This week, facility owner Southern California Gas announced that the costs of containing, repairing and maintaining the underground storage site have ballooned to more than $1 billion, even as they long-term future of the site, reopened at limited capacity last summer against the protests of Los Angeles County and angry residents, remains very much in doubt. 

SoCalGas, a unit of Sempra energy, officially broke the $1.014 billion mark for Aliso Canyon costs in its quarterly earnings filing this week. The estimate is up 6.3 percent from $954 million in the previous quarter, and almost all of it ($987 million) has been largely recovered or is likely to be recovered through insurance, the company stated.

Of the total, about 55 percent was for temporary relocation of the people forced to evacuate their homes during the leak. However, SoCalGas also warned that the estimates could “rise significantly” due to still-pending lawsuits and potential fines.

On Wednesday, SoCalGas announced its $119.5 million settlement with state, county and local governments, pledging to repay their costs associated with the response effort, as well as establish a program with the California Air Resources Board to mitigate the methane emissions from the leak, and fund local environmental benefit projects to be run by government parties, not the company itself.

The settlement did not, however, include some of the residents of the Porter Ranch neighborhood, who are vowing to continue their legal battle to close down the Aliso Canyon site. Los Angeles County, which is a party to this week’s settlement, has also opposed the CPUC’s decision to allow SoCalGas to conduct a study into whether or not facility could be kept open for the long term. 

Last July, the California Public Utilities Commission determined that Aliso Canyon could start to operate again at limited capacity of about 24.6 billion cubic feet, or about 28 percent of its pre-leak maximum capacity. But under Senate Bill 380, a law passed in 2016, the CPUC and the utility must operate the facility only as an “asset of last resort” after other options for dealing with energy shortfalls have been exhausted. 

SB 380 also requires the CPUC to study the long-term effectiveness of closing down Aliso Canyon entirely versus keeping it open. Last July, soon after the CPUC allowed Aliso Canyon to reopen, California Gov. Jerry Brown and the California Energy Commission (CEC) put forward a plan to study how Aliso Canyon could be shut down completely within the next 10 years. 

According to SoCalGas, Aliso Canyon serves more than 11 million customers and provides fuel to 17 natural gas-fired power plants with about 10,000 megawatts of generating capacity. It’s also much closer to some of Southern California’s most heavily populated regions — a critical factor for a pipeline system that can only move gas at about 20 to 30 miles per hour. While it takes only one to two hours for Aliso Canyon-stored gas to reach key Los Angeles area power plants, for example, it would take about 10 hours to supply those plants from terminals at the Arizona border, according to SoCalGas. 

Aliso Canyon’s closure in January 2016 led to fears that Southern California could be faced with energy shortages during both cold winter months, when natural gas for heating is in high demand, and during hot summer months, when air conditioning drives natural gas-fired electricity demand to peak levels. A joint state agency study in April 2016 warned of the risk of multi-day blackouts without a wide range of energy efficiency, solar power, demand response, energy storage, and other distributed energy resources to take its place. 

The threat drove the CPUC to fast-track utility deployments of DERs in record time, starting with the 2016 procurement of nearly 100 megawatts of energy storage from Tesla, Greensmith Energy and AES Energy Storage, including what is currently the country’s biggest battery — the 30-megawatt/120-megawatt-hour Escondido system that AES built for San Diego Gas & Electric. 

A law passed in 2017, SB 801, requires LADWP and SCE to procure additional energy storage — 100 megawatts and 20 megawatts, respectively — to meet reliability needs for Aliso Canyon.

Southern California Edison, which contracted for most of the energy storage above, also turned to Nest to enable 50 megawatts of smart thermostat-enabled peak load reduction, tapping about 50,000 of its existing customers in the region with utility incentives to reduce air conditioning loads in summer months. 

SoCalGas has also turned to Nest and Ecobee for an unusual wintertime demand response program, aimed at lowering natural gas consumption for heating, which saw its first test in December 2017. While uptake has been “minimal” thus far, the utility and its partners are seeking to increase participation for the coming winter, according to a March letter from the CPUC that outlined how utilities have been tapping those alternatives before tapping Aliso Canyon’s limited reserves over the winter. 

The CPUC’s letter noted that utilities SCE and Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) have also been working to re-dispatch power generation needs to plants outside the LA basin in an attempt to reduce demand on the regional natural gas supply system. The CPUC even issued a temporary moratorium on new commercial and industrial customer interconnections in parts of Los Angeles County reliant on Aliso Canyon service in December, although it lifted it in March. 

But with state grid operator CAISO facing the need for emergency demand reduction to meet late-summer electricity peaks, and the possibility of a colder-than-expected winter putting more stress on next year’s natural gas demands, it’s likely that Aliso Canyon may be called upon again in the near future — even as agencies look at ways it could be replaced in the long run.

          Introducing This or That      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The 2018 Viget intern class is proud to unveil an exciting new decision-making platform: This or That. Powered by seltzer alone, 6 young professionals took an idea from the ether to the Internet in just eight weeks. Here’s how we did it.

Ideation

It began, as all good products do, with an idea. In a brainstorming session, we popped ideas onto a board of virtual sticky notes. We added 21 distinct ideas and not one of them was This or That.

Many ideas...not one of them This or That.

As we came back for a second day of ideation, we distilled each idea to its warm gooey center. At the heart of several ideas was the concept of voting. We pivoted and began to flesh out what a voting platform might look like. Without realizing, we began referring to the idea as This or That.

With a flashy name in hand, we began defining the product’s features. The list grew long, but we kept our 8-week timeline in mind. We quickly defined a minimum viable product. Users would be able to create an account, create polls with images or text, vote on polls and save favorite polls for later. The catch? All voting would be anonymous.

Don’t worry, your best friend will never know you voted against her getting bangs.

Wireframes & User Testing

From ideation, we moved into wireframing. User Experience Design intern Vignesh created low-fidelity mockups of the product’s components, where they would be located, and how the user would interact with them.

This or That Wireframes

At the same time, Visual Design intern Julia was hard at work defining the look, feel, voice, and tone of the product. She presented logos and color palettes, which were then incorporated into the wireframes in preparation for user testing.

This or That Mid-Fi Mockups

User tests asked participants to interact with prototypes of key This or That features. Feedback helped refine microcopy and drove further design iterations.

Visual Design

Julia took the wireframes and began refining This or That’s visual design. Page elements became lighter and smaller, leaving space for user-generated content to shine. Geometric accents and icons were added to convey positioning within the site, expiration statuses and more.

This or That Hi-Fi Mockups

Development

Ruby on Rails Developer intern Aatif began translating the defined user journey into data models. As the Front-End Developer intern, I built out front-end components with static content, pushed them up to GitHub and then Aatif roped in the database. Along the way, the Viget engineering team helped review code for quality, security and logic.

When the site was nearing completion, Data & Analytics intern Solomon implemented Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager. These tools allow him to track user behavior across the site, providing insights for future improvements to the platform.

Quality Assurance (QA)

After three weeks of heads-down development, we took a step back and reviewed This or That as it stood. QA helped refine visual discrepancies and ensured that the product functions well across standard browsers.

Launch

Business Development intern Riley led the effort to prepare an engaging presentation that showed Vigets young and old a new, exciting way to make decisions. In its first two hours, This or That handled 750 votes and gained 28 new users.

This or That lives at this-or-that.co – and it’s time for you to start deciding! We are proud to share this platform with you and hope you’ll join the This or That community and add your two cents worth on questions like:

Should Julia invest in a new shirt or bold new earrings?

Is the earth flat or round?

Is a hot dog a sandwich? (of course not)

Happy voting!

New Dark Age
James Bridle
304 pp. Verso, July 17, 2018. $26.95. 

As I began James Bridle’s debut book New Dark Age, I took a pause and stared at a batch of headlines generated by the Google Now algorithm on my phone’s homepage. The headlines are rarely particularly useful, though I read them anyways, in spite of myself. As The Outline reported last year, Alphabet, Google’s parent company, has disclosed precious little about what’s required of publications in order for them to be featured in its Google News results. The company sources stories from tens of thousands of publications, big and small, showing little desire to remove untrustworthy or non-newsworthy results. 

I shouldn't have been surprised, then, when I hit this surreal headline from Fox News: “Google AI can predict when you’ll die with 95 percent accuracy, researchers say.” The piece described the report  of a study in which the company’s researchers conducted an analysis of data from more than 216,000 adults in order to predict patients’ potential lifespans, chances of readmission, and likely discharge dates. Their results supposedly eclipsed existing predictive models by ten percent. 

Such a strange story provoked any number of questions. What does Google get from examining patient data? How is the AI system analyzing what it’s given, and what are the consequences of its errors, at least in relation to those made by actual doctors? What would you do if Google’s computers told you your death was imminent? Even scarier – what would your doctor do, particularly in our inhumane, profit-above-everything healthcare system?

The article felt uncanny, a perfect synecdoche for the anxieties Bridle explores in New Dark Age. As an artist and author whose work explores the contested intersections of capitalism, surveillance, and computer intelligence, Bridle unravels these vexing issues across his new book. Even as he plunges deeper into the kinds of nightmarish scenarios exemplified by corporate-owned algorithmic death predictors, his mission is to stir people from a technological torpor and chart a radical reassessment of how these tools control our lives. While the book is often unsettling, and rightly so, Bridle's grim prophesies lack a clear diagnosis for forward action. It’s an outcome that's unsurprising given the enormity of what's being explored, but it still comes as a disappointment. 

Bridle’s central argument is that “Computational thinking has triumphed because it has first seduced us with its power, then befuddled us with its complexity, and finally settled into our cortexes as self-evident” (44). It's an elegant description of a trend that’s increasingly apparent: We're trapped by the limited control we have over digital tools that govern our livelihoods, while those at the top flourish thanks to their mastery over the computational forces that regulate our social and political economy. Elites have a vested self-interest in keeping these tools opaque, and as they creep further into our lives, it’s both more urgent and seemingly less possible to confront their impact, even as it feels that they allow us to know more about everything around us. “Our vision is increasingly universal, but our agency is ever more reduced,” Bridle suggests (186).

But if the information floodgates curtail our ability to resist, Bridle still overdetermines that impact by erasing meaningful political possibilities capable of reining in networked tools run amok. In a chapter exploring stock market “flash crashes,” Bridle argues that “digitisation made the markets both more opaque to noninitiates, and radically visible to those in the know.” As Bridle describes it, we’re inevitably descending towards DeutscheBank trying to increase the speed of light to make trades faster, as Hito Steyerl suggests in Factory of the Sun.

Yet Bridle ignores the possibility of a financial transaction tax, a measure that would hobble the low-margin, high-frequency trades that skim value off of the market, pennies at a time. By refusing this practical solution, Bridle sinks into the kind of all-consuming dread he elsewhere rejects, minimizing collective agency and overplaying the strength of a network that’s still of our own hand, even as it gains its own strange liveliness.

If our machines are increasingly autonomous, how should humans respond in a way that maximizes our virtues while channeling what’s useful about tools that escape our understanding? In an intriguing but underdeveloped argument, Bridle calls on people to accept a level of “practical unknowing,” asking us to recognize the network as “the best representation of [the] reality we have built, precisely because it too is so difficult to think” (76). Elsewhere, Bridle describes a similar mindset, a space he calls the “gray zone,” which “allows us to make peace with the otherwise-irreconcilable, conflicting worldviews that prevent us from taking meaningful action in the present” (214). Both thoughts grasp at something valuable, a recognition of agency within a degraded climate of misinformation, overabundance, and distractedness. But they’re not fully articulated, even as they seemingly define the pursuit of political action within Bridle’s dystopic imagination.

These concepts are better articulated by media scholar Patrick Jagoda, who names “network ambivalence” as a practical route through our indeterminate world. Jagoda suggests a way of living within a network totality “without yielding to apathy, cynicism, disengagement, or hopelessness.” His proposed method entails “a deliberate intensity, patience, and willingness to forgo quick resolution or any finality at all.” Jagoda urges us to accept discomfort and contradiction, while instantiating change through critical reflection and creation that embraces a compromised environment as a reality that must be accepted before it can be transformed.

It's a stance that finds echoes throughout New Dark Age, especially when Bridle argues, “Technology is and can be a guide and helpmate in this thinking, providing we do not privilege its output.” Learning to appreciate the virtues of technologies at our disposal, without expecting too much of their capacities, or too little of our own, is a useful approach that straddles the twin perils of neo-Luddism or accelerationism.

Much of what's most successful in New Dark Age comes as Bridle tries to enact this thinking-through-technology, offering a network psychoanalysis that reflects back the all-too-human flaws we continue to suppress elsewhere. Technology enacts “a particular set of beliefs and desires: the congruent, often unconscious dispositions of its creators,” (142) burying a vast legacy of oppression beneath a smooth, high-resolution sheen. If we follow Bridle’s advice, treating technological outputs as a starting point without diminishing our capacity for conscious intervention, we can probe and prod the algorithms that think beyond our comprehension with a desire to learn what these unsettling artifacts say about our worldviews.

Bridle does this work beautifully in his artistic output. One such work is Render Search, in which the artist sought to find people that appeared in architectural rendering photographs, a space in between the digital and physical that instantiates development, growth, and displacement. Playfully adopting the missing person poster (“Have You Seen These People?”), the work pokes at a virtual world-in-actualization, subtly reminding us that those displaced by construction are made to disappear from their homes and communities, victims of an unrecognized pursuit of capital accumulation at all costs.

If the New Dark Age is one of our own making, the product of unconscious and conscious desires, enacted in the networks we’ve brought to life, it’s too early to give into a hopelessness that sees no way out. Bridle has offered a grim prognosis, one that hits too close to home at many points in the text. He wants to offer hope, and a sense that if we attune ourselves to the strange frequencies of our computational world, we can once more find our bearings. But if Bridle wants readers to snap out of some computer-induced fever dream and awaken themselves to the undeniable need for immediate collective action, it seems like he might need to look in the mirror to convince himself such change is still possible before demanding the same of others.

Dall’Atanasio di Mostar a Henryk di Medjugorje

            

Introduzione

Diversi media hanno recentemente pubblicato la notizia che il vescovo in pensione di Varsavia-Praga e arcivescovo ad personam Henryk Hoser ha dato inizio al suo incarico di Visitatore Apostolico a Medjugorje. L’informazione stessa ha causato molte reazioni nel mondo virtuale. Ancora una volta, si è aperto uno scontro tra coloro che considerano le apparizioni di Medjugorje come verità assoluta e coloro che le considerano non autentiche. Insieme a questa notizia è stato pubblicato un altro articolo secondo cui il vescovo di Mostar-Duvno, Ratko Perić, in qualità di vescovo nel cui territorio si trova la parrocchia di Medjugorje, ha ricevuto l’arcivescovo Hoser e Luigi Pezzuto, nunzio apostolico in Bosnia-Erzegovina. Poiché egli ha espresso in questa occasione il suo rispetto per la decisione della Santa Sede, ha offerto all’arcivescovo Hoser la sua collaborazione, gli ha augurato l’abbondante aiuto di Dio nell’adempiere alla sua missione e ha poi ribadito in modo chiaro e inequivocabile qual è stata la costante posizione della Curia diocesana di Mostar, che non considera nessuna «apparizione», nessun «messaggio», nessun «segreto» e nessuna «pergamena» come autentici, compresi i primi sette o dieci giorni delle cosiddette apparizioni, le reazioni si sono trasformate in insulti e ostilità aperti.

Regina della pace o Regina dei disordini


Anche solo una rapida occhiata ai commenti fatti su alcuni dei portali più popolari, sia laici che religiosi, porta a concludere che in essi c’è pochissima compostezza e obiettività, e invece una grande quantità di sarcasmo, amarezza e insulti grossolani. Dal punto di vista laico, i toni in genere vanno dalla ridicolizzazione alla diffamazione di entrambe le parti, il che è comprensibile, in base all’approccio e alle credenziali dei commentatori. Tuttavia è molto triste osservare come sui cosiddetti portali religiosi, così come nei profili ufficiali e personali sui social network, il maggior numero di commentatori-credenti pronuncino insulti scandalosamente maleducati. A questo proposito, ciò che è particolarmente triste è il modo in cui i sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, quelli che fanno facilmente riferimento alla Gospa di Medjugorje [cioè la Madonna] come Madre e Regina della Pace, assumono un atteggiamento così scomposto e intollerante da far gelare il sangue nelle vene a causa dei loro attacchi contro il vescovo Perić, che vanno dall’augurio che crepi, alle accuse di essere un agente del KGB, un materialista incallito e un non credente o addirittura Satana incarnato.

«Fra» Bože Radoš e il diavolo, ovvero l’amore verso i nemici alla luce della verità di Medjugorje


In questo contesto, molto scalpore ha destato in particolare un video, più precisamente un’accusa al vescovo Perić di non essere altro che il diavolo. Si tratta di un video postato sul profilo Facebook di Bože Radoš, che è ben noto ai sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje e che arbitrariamente si definisce «Fra» Bože Radoš. È un ex membro dell’Ordine francescano, che a causa della sua disobbedienza è stato dimesso 20 anni fa e sospeso da tutte le facoltà sacerdotali, ma tuttavia continua a indossare l’abito francescano e ad usurpare il ministero sacerdotale. Negli archivi del vecchio sito web delle diocesi di Mostar-Duvno e ​​Trebinje-Mrkan si legge: «Bože Radoš, congedato per decreto del Generale, il 28 febbraio 1998, confermato dalla Santa Sede il 23 marzo 1998, sospeso dal celebrare i sacramenti il ​​30 dicembre 1998. È illegalmente residente nel canonicato parrocchiale di Čapljina e svolge illegalmente il ministero in altri luoghi dell’Erzegovina».
I suoi attacchi contro il vescovo Perić non sono una novità, perché sono una costante delle sue attività pastorali illegittime, così come delle attività pastorali di alcuni altri (spesso dimessi e sospesi) francescani. Ciò può essere confermato, tra l’altro, dalla sua pubblicazione, scritta insieme agli altri «frati di Čapljina», dal titolo Il diavolo in Erzegovina. Pubblica accusa al vescovo Ratko Perić, che è un libretto pubblicato dall’Associazione di fedeli cattolici dell’Erzegovina «Mir i dobro» (Pace e bene) a Čapljina, nel 2002. Il contenuto del libretto è, giusto per informazione, tragicomico, mentre la «pace» e il «bene» non vi si ritrovano nemmeno in tracce.
Inoltre, a quale livello di manipolazione i «Frati» di Čapljina e alcuni altri «frati» della stessa mentalità e attività di «Fra» Bože sono disposti ad arrivare, lo si può vedere dal fatto che uno di loro in passato – «Fra» Stanko Pavlović – prima di essere dimesso dall’Ordine dei Frati Minori, osò fingere di essere un vescovo ed ebbe l’ardire di amministrare il sacramento della Confermazione ai candidati di Čapljina.
E’ bene aggiungere che «Fra» Bože Radoš è un ospite gradito in quei media che fanno molto per promuovere le cosiddette apparizioni di Medjugorje, e i suoi insulti contro il vescovo in questi contesti sono regolarmente presentati come coraggio e saggezza, e mai come arroganza e disobbedienza. Inoltre, a giudicare dalle sue frequenti apparizioni e attività su Facebook, non possiamo sottrarci all’impressione che, a causa delle sue numerose esibizioni e auto-promozioni, non abbia molto tempo per il rosario e il breviario.
Coerentemente con il suo modo abituale di offendere il vescovo nel modo più crudo, «Fra» Bože ha anche pubblicato il summenzionato video, che è stato visto oltre 30.000 volte dalla sua messa on-line, ha ricevuto oltre 250 commenti ed è stato condiviso circa lo stesso numero di volte. Va anche notato che «Fra» Bože ha un gran numero di seguaci, cioè che la maggior parte dei commentatori approva e supporta questo modo di esprimersi e gli insulti al vescovo Perić, e aggiunge i propri, allo stesso indirizzo. Tuttavia, grazie a Dio, c’è un buon numero di persone che esprimono il loro orrore di fronte a colpi così bassi, e ancor più ce ne sono di quelli che esprimono il loro profondo dolore per il fatto che una persona di Chiesa usi tale vocabolario, specialmente quando questo viene fatto da un «frate».

«Io sono per la pace, ma essi, appena parlo, sono per la guerra»


Ciò che vogliamo sottolineare qui è proprio questo tipo di brutto e crudo vocabolario che viene spesso usato da alcuni frati dell’Erzegovina e dai loro cloni ideologici per squalificare il vescovo Perić e chiunque non riconosca le apparizioni di Medjugorje. Ma, ancora di più, vogliamo anche sottolineare in modo autocritico che questo tipo di vocabolario provoca nervosismo e crudezza in coloro che sentono il bisogno di reagire a questo. In questa luce, siamo consapevoli che anche noi abbiamo oltrepassato il limite delle argomentazioni espresse con compostezza e siamo entrati nell’arena del ridicolizzare e sminuire «Fra» Bože e simili «frati», insieme a tutti coloro che sostengono le apparizioni di Medjugorje. Guardando agli altri in questa luce e guardando a noi stessi, possiamo osservare che questa Regina della Pace di Medjugorje è strana, così strana che lei annulla la sua stessa essenza, perché invece che per la pace, sembra che sia per la guerra. È simile a ciò che leggiamo nel salmo: «Troppo tempo ho abitato con chi detesta la pace. Io sono per la pace, ma essi, appena parlo, sono per la guerra» (Sal 120,6-7). E queste due parti probabilmente non sarebbero mai d’accordo su chi è il nemico della pace, chi parla di pace e chi è per la guerra.
Il tema delle apparizioni di Medjugorje dovrebbe, ovviamente, essere aperto a qualsiasi discussione, anche a quelle sarcastiche, perché, per sua natura, è qualcosa che non è affatto e non può mai essere considerato una credenza obbligatoria. Eppure in pratica risulta essere un’area molto pericolosa, della quale solo pochi, e raramente, osano parlare criticamente. Pertanto, è del tutto comprensibile perché alcuni dei «frati» erzegovinesi ricoprano di insulti il vescovo Perić o, come direbbero le Scritture: «La sua bocca era più dolce del burro, ma la guerra era nel suo cuore: le sue parole erano più morbide dell’olio, ma erano spade sguainate» (Sal 55,21). In questo modo, il comandamento dell’amore di Cristo verso i nostri nemici è completamente svalutato, ancor peggio è corrotto nella misura in cui si iniziano a odiare sia gli amici che i fratelli. Ci sembra che questo sia uno dei problemi fondamentali del fenomeno di Medjugorje e, in questa luce, ci permettiamo di ripetere, ancora una volta, che in tutto questo non vediamo alcuna ragione obiettivamente giustificata per chiamare la Gospa di Medjugorje Regina della Pace ma piuttosto colei che incita costantemente alla guerra.

Le colorite bugie di Medjugorje


In altre parole, gli argomenti del vescovo Ratko Perić e le prove indiscutibili fornite dall’ufficio della Curia di Mostar durante tutto il tempo delle apparizioni sono completamente accettabili per noi, poiché indicano chiaramente che le apparizioni di Medjugorje sono una semplice menzogna e manipolazione delle masse. Pertanto, è abbastanza comprensibile che, durante il suo incontro con l’arcivescovo Hoser, il vescovo abbia presentato pubblicamente e chiaramente la sua posizione, anche se sa che colui che è stato nominato Visitatore Apostolico è per il momento completamente schierato con i francescani e ha accettato senza dubbio solo la loro versione dei fatti, mentre di fronte a un bel po’ di frutti negativi di Medjugorje sta semplicemente chiudendo gli occhi. Pertanto, riteniamo necessario esaminare alcune delle cose particolarmente evidenti emerse in questi giorni, per tentare di interpretarle in un modo che appaia ragionevole.
Prima di tutto, vogliamo dire che abbiamo già affrontato la questione della credibilità delle cosiddette apparizioni di Medjugorje nel testo intitolato Gli Zeloti di Medjugorje, o come la «Gospa» contraddice la Madonna [croatoinglese] e che non c’è bisogno di aggiungere qualcosa a questo. La grande quantità di prove presentate dall’ufficio della Curia di Mostar porta semplicemente alla conclusione che il fenomeno di Medjugorje è una fabbricazione, quindi qualsiasi ulteriore discussione su questo sarebbe interessante solo se qualcuno fosse in grado di smentire queste prove. Insieme a questo, vogliamo solo sottolineare qui che il lavoro svolto finora dall’arcivescovo Hoser riguardo a Medjugorje ci sembra che sia stato assolutamente imperfetto, perché ha fatto il lavoro che gli è stato affidato in modo superficiale, prevenuto e poco serio. Ne abbiamo già parlato nei testi: Il fanatismo di Medjugorje e l’inviato papale arcivescovo Hoser e Con quale autorità l’arcivescovo Hoser proclama Medjugorje santuario? Anche riguardo a questi testi non sentiamo alcun bisogno di aggiungere o cancellare nulla. Tuttavia, sentiamo di dover commentare alcune nuove circostanze, che sono principalmente incentrate sul vescovo Perić, l’arcivescovo Hoser e papa Francesco, o sulla Santa Sede, come attori principali.
Ci poniamo la domanda: come si può comprendere correttamente la decisione della Santa Sede di nominare un visitatore apostolico e quindi, probabilmente, sollevare completamente il vescovo Perić dalla sua giurisdizione sulla parrocchia di Medjugorje? Anche se il mandato dell’arcivescovo Hoser è stato assegnato ad nutum della Santa Sede, e sebbene sia esclusivamente di carattere pastorale, non crediamo che, con questa nomina, al vescovo Perić sia lasciata una qualche autorità per amministrare quella parrocchia, che, de facto, diventa una parrocchia sotto la giurisdizione della Santa Sede. Questo potrebbe sembrare ingiusto verso il vescovo Perić, anche come un segno di declassamento e di critica, ma in realtà non deve essere così.
Prima di discutere cosa intendiamo con questo, vorremmo dire alcune parole sul vescovo Ratko Perić e su come vediamo il suo ruolo nel contesto del fenomeno di Medjugorje.

Il ruolo del vescovo Perić nel fenomeno di Medjugorje


Il vescovo Perić e i suoi più stretti collaboratori, così come il suo predecessore, il vescovo Žanić e i suoi collaboratori, hanno fatto molto per rivelare le menzogne ​​di Medjugorje, anche se molto lentamente. Mentre c’è ancora un numero molto più grande di coloro che accettano senza dubbio le apparizioni di Medjugorje come credibili, non si deve ignorare il fatto che molti stanno facendo sempre più domande e arrivano a una delle due conclusioni: che si tratti di una semplice manipolazione, oppure che non si tratti delle apparizioni della Madonna, ma di apparizioni del diavolo, come direbbe «Fra» Bože. Tuttavia, questa volta non nella persona del vescovo Perić, ma di «colui che divide», dalla testa ai piedi.
In questa luce, il ruolo del vescovo Perić e dei suoi più stretti collaboratori è lodevole, perché essi hanno dimostrato un’incredibile forza e fedeltà nella difesa dell’ortodossia, mentre i sacrifici e gli insulti che hanno dovuto sopportare e continuare a sostenere confermano il loro livello di preoccupazione nel difendere la Madre di Dio e la Madre della Chiesa dalla Regina della Pace di Medjugorje, che sta diffondendo turbamento attorno a sé. Per noi quindi, come abbiamo già detto in un precedente testo [croatoinglese], il vescovo Perić, a causa della sua chiarezza e forza, è simile a sant’Atanasio, che in difesa della vera fede dovette fuggire in esilio cinque volte a causa degli attacchi degli eretici ariani del suo tempo. Ancor meglio, a lui appartiene il titolo di «Atanasio di Mostar», attribuitogli per le stesse ragioni dal presidente della Conferenza episcopale croata, l’arcivescovo Želimir Puljić.
Queste parole di lode all’Atanasio di Mostar e ai suoi collaboratori non sono un segno di piaggeria o adulazione. Al contrario, è nostra ferma convinzione che essi meritano questo riconoscimento per i loro veramente grandi sacrifici, dato che spesso vengono lasciati soli a lottare per la vera fede contro tutti gli altri. E non solo con la sfida di Medjugorje, ma anche in molti altri campi, come la lettera circolare del vescovo Ratko Perić del 22 ottobre 2016, con il titolo: «Un promemoria ai confessori» [presentazione in italiano], in cui, unico vescovo di lingua croata, fornisce istruzioni chiare e ortodosse nell’interpretazione dell’esortazione di Papa Francesco Amoris laetitia, senza le esitazioni e i timorosi silenzi o attese che hanno avuto la maggioranza dei vescovi nel mondo. Siamo certi che tale chiarezza riguardo agli insegnamenti originali della Chiesa e il coraggio nella loro difesa sono stati largamente raggiunti dal vescovo Perić nella sua già citata battaglia con Medjugorje.
Tuttavia, vogliamo sottolineare che proviamo un certo rispetto, e forse persino un sentimento di apprezzamento, verso quei francescani che sono pronti a difendere la Gospa di Medjugorje con tutte le loro forze, perché in tutta questa storia stanno anche subendo umiliazioni e innumerevoli colpi (ma è anche vero che loro stessi ne sono regolarmente responsabili). A noi, sembrano semplicemente fanatici pronti a morire per la loro verità. Eppure, tutto questo non è qualcosa che possa essere facilmente ignorato, indipendentemente dal fatto che siamo convinti che la loro verità sia in realtà una semplice bugia. Tuttavia, anche se sono pronti a cadere nelle più basilari forme di disobbedienza, riteniamo che tali azioni da parte loro siano più comunemente derivate da una solida convinzione di agire correttamente.
Ancora una volta, torniamo al problema dell’amore cristiano e ancor più all’amore verso i nemici, perché la storia di Medjugorje mostra uno scandaloso livello di intolleranza, che oscura così il volto misericordioso del nostro Maestro e il cuore tenero di sua e nostra Madre e, di conseguenza, gli eventi attorno a Medjugorje appaiono agli osservatori esterni come un circo. E poi, questo paradigma di Medjugorje, purtroppo, viene copiato in molti altri settori della Chiesa, facendo così perdere alla Chiesa la reputazione, la credibilità e il valore della sua missione.
Desideriamo sottolineare ancora una volta che la responsabilità di una tale situazione non dipende dal vescovo Perić e dai suoi collaboratori, come spesso è asserito dai sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, ma solo da coloro che hanno dato inizio alle bugie, coloro che hanno perseverato in queste bugie e attraverso la manipolazione dei media hanno permesso che queste si diffondessero in tutto il mondo. Poiché è il vescovo responsabile della parrocchia di Medjugorje, il vescovo Perić ha dovuto reagire a tali menzogne ​​a causa del suo ministero, e sosteniamo che ha fatto esattamente ciò che ci si aspetterebbe da qualsiasi vescovo della Chiesa cattolica.
La nomina dell’arcivescovo Hoser a Visitatore Apostolico ha poi declassato il vescovo Perić; e l’aver scelto una persona che accetta senza riserve le apparizioni di Medjugorje lo ha umiliato; e l’intervento diretto della Santa Sede ha squalificato tutti i suoi sforzi verso la verità; e tutto ciò ha avuto luogo un anno e mezzo prima del suo ritiro regolare per allontanarlo deliberatamente dalla scena pubblica così da preparare il terreno a un nuovo vescovo che sia sostenitore delle apparizioni di Medjugorje. Il tempo dirà se le cose stanno così. Tuttavia, a noi sembra che le cose potrebbero evolvere molto rapidamente in una direzione gradita al vescovo Perić.

Il fenomeno di Medjugorje tra l’Atanasio di Mostar e Henryk di Medjugorje


Innanzitutto, bisogna essere onesti e ammettere che, in sostanza, il vescovo Perić (non a causa di una sua responsabilità o di eventuali omissioni da parte sua) è stato solo nominalmente vescovo della parrocchia di Medjugorje. Parimenti, bisogna essere onesti e ammettere che non tutti i frati di Medjugorje hanno ostacolato la giurisdizione dell’Ufficio della Curia di Mostar. Tuttavia, in linea di principio e in considerazione delle intricate circostanze, si può dire che i frati di Medjugorje hanno guidato la parrocchia come hanno voluto, senza riconoscere l’autorità del vescovo e senza rispettare le sue decisioni. E spesso non hanno rispettato nemmeno l’autorità e le decisioni del Generale dell’Ordine e l’autorità e le decisioni della Santa Sede.
Tra l’altro, questa affermazione può essere comprovata dal fatto che con l’esplicita o tacita benedizione dei francescani, senza alcuna previa conoscenza e approvazione dell’Ordinario del luogo, sono nate molte comunità di carattere sospetto, dal Nucleo Centrale legato all’attuale movimento New Age dell’ex iniziatore e cervello dell’«operazione Medjugorje», «Fra» Tomislav Vlašić, fino ad una serie di altre comunità religiose, carismatiche e caritatevoli non riconosciute, considerate pericolose per la comunione ecclesiale.
Lo stesso vale per l’acclamato Festival Internazionale della Gioventù – lo Mladifest, che si tiene ogni anno dal 1° al 6 agosto, al quale affluiscono decine di migliaia di esaltati pellegrini di Medjugorje, anche se probabilmente nessuno di loro sa da quale tipo di evento blasfemo si sia sviluppato, ragion per cui non potrebbe avere il sostegno di nessuno dei vescovi del mondo. I suoi fondatori e gli organizzatori, naturalmente, non hanno bisogno di tale sostegno, perché lo trovano nelle vaste folle che vi partecipano, che non chiedono altro che di sentire qualcosa in quell’oasi di pace. L’evento a cui ci riferiamo è legato a una presunta rivelazione della Gospa di Medjugorje del 1984, in cui la Gospa informava i veggenti di essere nata il 5 agosto e che proprio in quell’anno, in quella data, avrebbe celebrato i suoi 2.000 anni. Entusiasti di questa rivelazione, i veggenti, secondo la testimonianza della veggente Marija Pavlović, decisero di preparare una grande torta di compleanno per la Gospa, decorata con candeline e molte rose di zucchero, e di portarla sulla collina delle apparizioni. La Gospa fu così toccata da questo regalo di compleanno che prese persino una delle rose di zucchero che le era stata offerta spontaneamente da uno di loro. Su una tale bizzarra mescolanza di naturale e soprannaturale, da cui è nato lo Mladifest, non c’è nulla da aggiungere, tranne che il vescovo Perić non approverebbe un’attività così pagana neanche morto. Ma ovviamente nessuno gli ha mai chiesto di farlo.
La nostra intenzione nel sottolineare tutto questo è di mostrare come in realtà le mani del vescovo Perić fossero legate, cioè, come contro una tale macchina di propaganda, capace di trasformare, senza scrupoli, un vescovo coscienzioso in un mostro, non avesse alcuno spazio di manovra per un’amministrazione regolare di Medjugorje. Proprio per questa ragione crediamo che le cose ora, e non solo in senso pastorale, si muovano nella giusta direzione.
Anche se l’arcivescovo Hoser nella sua precedente visita a Medjugorje non ha notato nessuna delle cose che abbiamo detto, ma al contrario ha fornito un sostegno senza riserve ai francescani, nella misura in cui dopo soli tre giorni a Medjugorje si è identificato con loro rivolgendosi ai fedeli con il saluto «Noi Medjugorjani», siamo convinti che presto comincerà a cambiare idea. Infatti, non appena i problemi pastorali lo costringeranno a compiere la minima mossa che non sia accettabile per i francescani e il settarismo diffuso, incontrerà ostruzionismo e opposizione. Ecco perché pensiamo che la nomina di un visitatore apostolico, e specialmente di un tale visitatore apostolico, sia un atto dello Spirito Santo, perché le intenzioni di molti cuori saranno rivelate attraverso di lui.
Inoltre, dato che il fenomeno di Medjugorje esiste per provocare tensione o la creazione dell’impressione generale che tutti coloro che credono nelle apparizioni di Medjugorje, specialmente i (disobbedienti) francescani erzegovinesi, siano martiri perseguitati a causa della cattiva coscienza e della malevolenza del vescovo Perić, la nomina di un visitatore apostolico farà quindi cessare la causa di tutte queste ingiustizie. Quindi, sarà interessante osservare cosa accadrà.

La nomina di un visitatore apostolico: un errore o una decisione saggia della Santa Sede?


Prevediamo che questo sarà l’inizio della fine dell’interesse delle masse per la destinazione di Medjugorje e quando le fonti di questo turismo religioso si prosciugheranno ci aspettiamo che anche i francescani stessi abbandoneranno la Regina della Pace. Inoltre, poiché i veggenti sono già nei loro anni maturi, è prevedibile che, dopo la loro morte, anche la sola menzione delle apparizioni non sarà abbastanza interessante, perché i pellegrini avranno appreso che la Gospa appariva su richiesta e che lei era così premurosa che posticipava persino il momento prestabilito, secondo i bisogni mutevoli dei clienti.
Certo, bisogna anche essere preparati a uno scenario di tentativi di continuare a tenere in vita la favola di Medjugorje, perché la secolare intraprendenza dei francescani potrebbe trovare nuove modalità, ad esempio, di provocare tensioni con la Santa Sede, secondo il metodo già collaudato e di successo, se e quando i rapporti con l’arcivescovo Hoser diventassero tesi. Oppure potrebbero pregare la Gospa perché conceda la grazia a dei nuovi arrivati, cosicché inizi ad apparire ad altri che facciano in modo che le apparizioni continuino di generazione in generazione. Ci aspettiamo che la decisione finale verrà presa solo dopo che avranno considerato attentamente ciò che a loro conviene di più.
In questa luce, è bene menzionare le parole di Henryk di Medjugorje prima della sua partenza dalla Polonia, cioè prima di venire a Medjugorje e iniziare il suo ministero come visitatore apostolico, sulla questione della mafia che fiorisce a Medjugorje, in particolare quella di Napoli, come da lui sottolineato. Non dubitiamo che la mafia abbia veramente trovato il suo posto a Medjugorje, eppure ci chiediamo: chi ha aperto loro le porte e chi le tiene ben aperte? Inoltre, temiamo che la mafia menzionata dall’arcivescovo Hoser sia solo un bambino prematuro rispetto ad un’altra, nascosta nell’involucro carismatico-caritatevole, che mons. Željko Majić, il vicario generale della diocesi di Mostar-Duvno, come persona ben informata, menziona nel suo acuto e interessante articolo intitolato: Razlikovati pšenicu od kukolja (Distinguere il grano dalla zizzania). Se questa mafia ha preso alla gola influenti dignitari vaticani di alto rango, che hanno il potere e l’interesse di chiamare bugie la verità, forse il tempo lo dirà, ma molti piccoli ciottoli lanciati lungo la strada portano a quella fonte oscura.
Per non sbagliare, qui sottolineiamo chiaramente che non stiamo pensando a papa Francesco o all’arcivescovo Hoser, ma piuttosto intuiamo che un futuro prevedibile mostrerà che la decisione del papa è molto più saggia e molto più profonda di quanto possa sembrare in questo momento. Cioè, a noi, come osservatori, mancano molti pezzi per completare il mosaico, mentre lui ha un quadro completo o almeno più completo e, in questa luce, sa perché sta facendo quello che sta facendo. Potremmo dire che l’ingenuo e inoffensivo Henryk di Medjugorje è ideale per servire allo scopo del papa nel realizzare ciò che intende, lontano dalle luci delle telecamere.
Questa conclusione può essere sostenuta dal fatto che il papa ha ripetutamente, in modo diretto e sarcastico, parlato pubblicamente delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, come menzionato da mons. Željko Majić nel suo articolo. Così, il 14 novembre 2013, nella sua omelia mattutina durante la Messa, ha detto: «Io conosco un veggente, una veggente che riceve lettere della Madonna, messaggi della Madonna. Ma, guarda, la Madonna è madre! E ama tutti noi. Ma non è un capo ufficio della posta, per inviare messaggi tutti i giorni». E il 9 giugno 2015, sempre nell’omelia dell’Eucaristia mattutina, ha detto: «Ma dove sono i veggenti che ci dicono oggi la lettera che la Madonna manderà alle 4 del pomeriggio? E vivono di questo». Che questa affermazione non sia stata detta in modo spericolato, ma piuttosto meditato, si può vedere nel fatto che l’ha ripetuta quasi per intero tre anni e mezzo dopo, il 13 maggio 2017, quando ha detto: «Preferisco la Madonna come madre, nostra madre, non la Madonna capo dell’ufficio telegrafico, che invia messaggi ogni giorno alla tale ora. Questa non è la madre di Gesù. E queste presunte apparizioni non hanno valore. Questo lo dico come opinione personale». Insieme a questo, si dovrebbe aggiungere un estratto della sua conversazione con l’Unione dei Superiori Generali il 25 novembre 2016, quando ha detto: «Questa moda della Madonna come una superstar, che come protagonista si pone al centro, non è cattolica» (L’Osservatore Romano, 10.2.2017, p. 4). Anche se in nessuna di queste affermazioni il papa ha menzionato esplicitamente Medjugorje, dal contenuto dei messaggi e dalle circostanze delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, è più che ovvio che si riferiscono ad esso [nota del traduttore: in realtà, il 13 maggio 2017 il papa ha detto nella maniera più chiara ed esplicita che si riferiva a Medjugorje].
Giungiamo a questa conclusione anche per il fatto che il papa ha nominato l’arcivescovo Hoser ad nutum Sanctae Sedis, il che significa che il suo ministero può durare anni, ma che può in qualsiasi momento, appena la Santa Sede lo decida, anche cessare. Ciò significa che l’arcivescovo Hoser non sarà nelle condizioni di prendere facilmente iniziative di comune accordo con i francescani, cosa che probabilmente vorrebbe fare con tutto il cuore in questo momento, ma, prima di agire, dovrà pensare se le sue mosse saranno gradite al papa, tenendo sempre presente che il papa non vede il fenomeno di Medjugorje con gli stessi occhi di Hoser. Inoltre, il papa ha ulteriormente limitato il suo ministero, avendo stabilito che è puramente pastorale, come affermato nel comunicato stampa dell’Ufficio stampa della Santa Sede del 31 maggio 2018, e ha quindi chiarito che non deve più lasciarsi andare ad affermazioni al di fuori di questo contesto, come ha invece fatto in precedenza.

A mo’ di conclusione


Detto questo, crediamo veramente che la decisione del papa sia molto più saggia e di vasta portata di quanto sembra ora, e che, in quanto tale, equilibri sia il lato dottrinale che quello pastorale del fenomeno di Medjugorje. In altre parole, sembra che papa Francesco abbia aperto un nuovo capitolo, forse finale, di Medjugorje, che esteriormente potrebbe sembrare andare a favore dei sostenitori delle apparizioni di Medjugorje, facendo presagire il riconoscimento di Medjugorje come santuario, il che appare anche come un declassamento del vescovo Perić e un netto rifiuto di tutto ciò che egli ha fatto negli ultimi decenni. Ma è possibile che, in realtà, attraverso le facoltà sufficienti ma molto limitate date all’arcivescovo Hoser, stia solo cercando di creare una situazione ordinaria e regolare a Medjugorje, sapendo bene che l’interesse per il fenomeno di Medjugorje sarà significativamente ridotto, con i fiumi di quei pellegrini che sono alla ricerca di miracoli più che di Dio, così come in tutti quei potenti gruppi di ambito carismatico-caritatevole di gola spirituale, i cui motivi di esistenza cessano nel momento in cui l’interesse per i loro «prodotti» diminuisce.
Che noi si sia visto giusto o meno, desideriamo comunque esprimere al vescovo Perić la nostra profonda gratitudine per la sua perseveranza nella vera fede, al tramonto del suo ministero episcopale, parafrasando le parole della Sacra Scrittura: Hai combattuto la buona battaglia; hai (quasi) terminato la tua corsa (episcopale), hai conservato la (tua e nostra) fede! (2 Tim 4,7). Con ulteriore gratitudine a lui e ai suoi collaboratori, aggiungiamo: Ora mi resta solo la corona di giustizia che il Signore, giusto giudice, mi consegnerà in quel giorno; e non solo a me, ma anche a tutti coloro che attendono con amore la sua manifestazione (2 Tim 4,8).

Cardinale Schönborn: La Chiesa ha "riconosciuto ufficialmente i buoni frutti di Medjugorje”


Per la prima volta nella storia delle presunte apparizioni di Medjugorje, l'annuale Festa della Gioventù (dal 1° al 6 di agosto) è iniziato con una Messa celebrata dal nunzio apostolico di Bosnia e Herzegovina, arcivescovo Luigi Pezzuto.

Le date del festival risalgono a una [falsa] rivelazione di Medjugorje secondo cui Nostra Signora sarebbe nata il 5 agosto dell'anno 16 a.C. [e pertanto avrebbe avuto 9 anni quando Cristo nacque nel 7 a.C.].

Il cardinale pro-gay di Vienna Schönborn ha inviato i suoi saluto alla Festa di quest'anno.

Secondo lui, la nomina da parte di papa Francesco di un inviato permanente a Medjugorje è "segno di grande apprezzamento e riconoscimento". La Chiesa ha "riconosciuto ufficialmente i buoni frutti di Medjugorje”, ha aggiunto.

Las investigaciones del periodista estadounidense Max Blumenthal y del catedrático venezolano Álvaro Verzi Rangel, pusieron al descubierto el rol de entidades como la Usaid, Freedom House, y la NEDen el financiamiento de ONG’s nicaragüenses, que llamaron al derrocamiento de Ortega. La Usaidaportó 5,2 millones de dólares, para “la capacitación de la sociedad civil y las organizaciones de medios de comunicación”.

 En junio, los dirigentes del M19, el grupo estudiantil que comenzó las protestas antigubernamentales viajaron a Washington, financiados por Freedom House, donde se reunieron con la ultraderecha parlamentaria estadounidense.

 Lo de Nicaragua es una demostración más del poder del terror mediático de los medios hegemónicos trasnacionales y cartelizados y de su capacidad de imponer imaginarios colectivos en la región. Y, también, de una agencia propia de los medios alternativos (al mensaje hegemónico), preocupados permanentemente por seguir reactivamente la agenda del enemigo y creer que la resistencia es la denunciología, sin informar sobre lo que realmente pasa.

 Nicaragua, junto a Venezuela, Cuba y Bolivia, se ha convertido en una piedra en el zapato de los proyectos “panamericanistas” de Estados Unidos y sus repetidores, y hoy usan todos los argumentos para aniquilarla. No es la primera vez, tampoco. Tras la revolución sandinista, llegó la guerra del escándalo Irán-Contras, la agresión desde Honduras, el bloqueo de los puertos, las sanciones económicas, el intento de rendir por muerte o por hambre al pueblo.

En el encuentro habanero del Foro de Sao Paulo, el segundo secretario del Partido Comunista Cubano, José Ramón Machado Ventura, señaló que con respecto a Nicaragua, la posición cubana es categórica: en la medida en que Estados Unidos trata de manipular asuntos internos que solo los nicaragüenses deben resolver sin injerencia externa alguna, nuestro Partido ha dado, da y dará toda la solidaridad que demande el Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional para posibilitar el retorno de la paz al país”.

          Watch a leaked video of ‘Fortnite’ played on an Android phone for the first time      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Rumors about Epic Games' plans for Fortnite exclusivity on Android have been floating around the internet for a few weeks, and the app even leaked online a couple of days ago, but we hadn't actually gotten a chance to see the game in action. At least, not until now. On Wednesday, XDA Developers forum (which was also the source of the SDK leak) shared the first gameplay footage of Fortnite running on an Android phone. As the post on XDA Developers explains, Fortnite is still technically unplayable on Android (at least until tomorrow), but the site's own Max Weinbach managed to bypass the app's authentication requirements and jump into a game a day before it actually arrives on Samsung devices via the Game Launcher app. Played on a Galaxy S9+ in the leaked footage, the mobile version of Fortnite on Android looks virtually identical to its iOS counterpart (which in turn is mostly the same as the console and PC versions). The only real difference is that the Android version of the game will integrate with Samsung Galaxy Apps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SshgEhjiHyw Epic Games has confirmed that Fortnite will not be available through the Google Play store, which means you will have to manually install the game either from the Game Launcher app or from Epic's website. Samsung has yet to say anything about a potential partnership between itself and Epic, but all of the leaks point to an announcement taking place during the Galaxy Note 9 Unpacked event in New York City on Thursday.

  • Microsoft's Azure Kubernetes Service mucked my cluster!

    Microsoft's Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) was launched to world+dog in June, however, a few disgruntled customers say the managed container confection isn't fully baked yet.

    In a blog post published on Monday, Prashant Deva, creator of an app and infrastructure monitoring service called DripStat, savaged AKS, calling it "an alpha service marked as GA [generally available] by Microsoft."

    Deva said he moved his company's production workload to AKS last month, and has been plagued by random DNS failures for domains outside of Azure and hostnames inside the Azure Virtual Network.

    He characterized the response from Microsoft support – advice not to use excessive memory and CPU resources – as ridiculous, and said Microsoft failed to respond when told the DNS issues occurred mainly during application startup when memory and CPU usage is minimal.

          Ohio, Kansas elections too close to call; Trump claims win      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

WESTERVILLE, Ohio — Two high-stakes elections that tested President Donald Trump's clout and cost both parties millions of dollars were too close to call on Wednesday. Trump claimed victory in one nevertheless and proclaimed himself '5 for 5' for Tuesday's Election Day.

In battleground Ohio, the president took credit for Republican Troy Balderson's performance, calling it "a great victory," though the congressional contest could be headed to a recount. Democrats could also celebrate their strong showing in the district that has gone Republican for decades.

"We're not stopping now," Democrat Danny O'Connor told cheering supporters Tuesday night. Whoever is eventually declared the winner in the special election will take office immediately but only until the end of the year. The two men will face off again in November for the full 2019-2020 term.

But Trump declared unconditional victory, tweeting Wednesday, "As long as I campaign and/or support Senate and House candidates (within reason), they will win!"

He claimed to have helped five GOP candidates win, including Bill Schuette for Michigan governor, John James for Michigan Senate and Josh Hawley for Missouri Senate. "5 for 5!" Trump tweeted.

Though, as in Ohio, the Kansas primary for governor was too close to call.

With election officials halting the vote count Wednesday morning, Secretary of State Kris Kobach led incumbent Gov. Jeff Colyer by fewer than 200 votes. It could be several days before all absentee votes are counted.

The day's races in five states, like many before them, tested the persistence of Trump's fiery supporters and the momentum of the Democratic Party's anti-Trump resistance.

The results were helping determine the political landscape — and Trump's standing within his own party — as the GOP defends its House and Senate majorities this fall.

If Balderson holds on in Ohio, Republicans will have won eight of nine special House elections since 2016, most in Republican-leaning districts.

In Kansas, Republicans were fighting among themselves in an unusual battle for governor in which the president sided with the incumbent's challenger.

A new state law allows ballots postmarked as of Tuesday to be counted, so long as they arrive within three days of Election Day.

Kobach received a late endorsement from Trump. Colyer received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association and had the backing of Kansas political legend Bob Dole.

Should the polarizing Kobach win the primary, some Republican operatives fear he could lose the governorship to Democrats this fall. The race could become further disrupted if Kansas City-area businessman Greg Orman makes it onto the November ballot. He submitted petitions Monday with more than 10,000 signatures for what could become the most serious independent run for Kansas governor in decades.

Trump made his preference clear for Kobach.

"He is a fantastic guy who loves his State and our Country - he will be a GREAT Governor and has my full & total Endorsement! Strong on Crime, Border & Military," the president tweeted on the eve of the election.

In Kansas' 3rd Congressional District, Sharice Davids became the state's first Native American and gay nominee for Congress.

The 38-year-old attorney and activist prevailed in a close six-candidate Democratic primary and will face four-term Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder.

Davids edged labor lawyer Brent Welder, who received the endorsements and a June campaign visit from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and New York House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Democrats are targeting the district, which includes the state's metropolitan Kansas City area. Hillary Clinton narrowly won it in the 2016 presidential race.

In Ohio, the script for the special election was somewhat familiar this year: An experienced Trump loyalist, Balderson, was fighting a strong challenge from O'Connor, a fresh-faced Democrat in the state's 12th congressional District, a Columbus-area suburban area held by the Republican Party for more than three decades. As voters were going to the polls, Trump said Balderson would make a "great congressman."

The winner takes the seat previously held by Pat Tiberi, a nine-term incumbent who resigned to take a job with an Ohio business group.

There were at least 3,367 provisional ballots left to be reviewed. That's enough for O'Connor to potentially pick up enough to force a recount.

The Associated Press does not declare winners in races subject to an automatic recount.

In a special election season that featured nearly a dozen congressional contests, Democrats claimed just a handful of wins, but they may have cause for optimism this fall. In virtually every special election test dating back to the spring of 2017, Democratic candidates performed significantly better than their party had in those same places two years earlier.

Trump won Ohio's 12th Congressional District, for example, by more than 11 points in 2016; on Tuesday night, Balderson and O'Connor were separated by less than 1 point.

There are 79 House races this fall considered more competitive than the Ohio district — at least looking at Trump's 2016 performance — according to data compiled by the Democrats' national campaign committee.

Despite the deadlocked race, the details of the Ohio returns suggest considerably higher Democratic enthusiasm less than 100 days before the midterms.

O'Connor's total of nearly 100,000 votes far exceeded what the Republican Tiberi's Democratic opponent got in 2014. Balderson's total — just more than 101,500 votes — was barely two-thirds of Tiberi's 2014 mark of about 150,000.

"Over the next three months, I'm going to do everything I can to keep America great again, so that when we come back here in November — get ready, we gotta come back here in November — I have earned your vote for a second time," Balderson told supporters.

It's unclear how much Trump's support helped or hurt Balderson. Described by campaign operatives as a "Whole Foods" district, the largely suburban region features a more affluent and educated voter base than the typical Trump stronghold.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a leading voice in the GOP's shrinking anti-Trump wing, once represented the district in Congress.

At times, the race centered on Trump's tax cuts as much as the candidates.

O'Connor and his Democratic allies railed against the tax plan, casting it as a giveaway for the rich that exacerbates federal deficits and threatens Medicare and Social Security. Balderson and his Republican allies have backed away from the tax plan in recent weeks, training their fire instead on top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

O'Connor's campaign spent $2.25 million on advertising compared to Balderson's $507,000, according to campaign tallies of ad spending. But the Republican campaign arm and its allied super PAC picked up the slack, spending more than $4 million between them.

In Michigan , former state Rep. Rashida Tlaib is poised to become the first Muslim woman in Congress. She won the Democratic nomination to run unopposed in November.

The field was set in two Senate contests.

In Missouri, Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill claimed her party's nomination, while state Attorney General Josh Hawley will represent the GOP.

And in Michigan, Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow will take on military veteran and business executive John James, who won the GOP nomination. James would join Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina as the chamber's only black Republicans.

Trump tweeted that James is "a potential Republican star."

The Magic Leap One is a three-piece system that includes a headset called Lightwear, a small wearable computer called the Lightpack, and a handheld controller.

...

the Lightpack is specifically slightly smaller than a CD-ROM, so people won’t mistake it for a CD player. Given the Magic Leap One’s mildly ‘90s-retro look, that seems like a legitimate concern.

...

unless Magic Leap is deliberately holding any big projects for a consumer release, I’m not sure what its internal studios and partners have been doing with several years and virtually unlimited funding, and why it wouldn’t showcase more of their work during the Magic Leap One’s big debut.
The first wearable prototypes looked great.

Oxford Study Finds Conservatives Are ‘Right To Be Skeptical’ of Scientists

An initial note:  The leading author in the paper mentioned below is Nathan Cofnas, not Confas.  It is of course an unusual name so confusion is understood. It is a Lithuanian Jewish name.

I have read the original academic journal article and rather admire the way Nathan has minimized his upsetting of applecarts.  Most social psychological research is utter bilge but Nathan quotes a lot of it with a straight face. He establishes his point about biased scientists even while not criticizing a lot of biased science.

So his paper is a very scholarly and thorough discussion of three areas where the positions of the scientific establishment are unreasonably liberal. And he doesn't even mention global warming!  Conservatives have long been acutely aware of the liberal bias in academe but Cofnas gives detailed chapter and verse coverage of how that affects scientific findings.

I myself worked for ten years in a sociology department of a highly rated Australian university and rapidly became aware that all of the other teaching staff were Marxists of one stripe or another -- so it was clear from that that conservative ideas would not get fair consideration, if they were considered at all.

Cofnas mentions the difficulty that conservatives have in getting results of their research published in the academic journals.  I experienced that and had to go to great lengths to overcome it.  I overcame it by doing much higher quality work than Leftist authors were presenting  -- which was not actually that hard.

By that I am referring to the virtually universal practice among psychologists of carrying out their research using either white rats or available groups of freshman students.  Such studies are no more than childish games.  To arrive at any sort of generalizable conclusion, you have to base your research on  a representative sample of the population you wish to discuss. Normal psychological research, however, does nor use representative samples of anything.  They do not even attempt to use representative samples of freshman students!  Yet such totally useless research results are routinely presented as if they were generalizable to all humanity!  That is just about as far away from real science as you can get.  It's about as authoritative as medieval theology.

So I used that to my advantage.  I did my research using real random samples of specifiable populations. I went out and doorknocked, for instance -- something that would give almost any leftist academic the horrors. So when my papers came up for evaluation, editors and referees would have looked absurd  even to themselves if they rejected the only bit of generalizable research that they had ever seen.  Even then, however, if I questioned liberal dogma too sharply or sweepingly, my papers were rejected.  Like Cofnas I had to stick to a careful consideration of just a few detailed points.

So conservatives do well to be skeptical of conclusions from liberal social scientists. Their conclusions are not only biased, they are in general just rubbish by normal scientific standards, and blatant rubbish at that.

Wisely, Cofnas did not extend his critique to global warming. But that allegedly "scientific" theory was obviously wrong from its first formulation in the 80s.  The theory is that the worldwide expansion of industrialization after WWII led to a great increase in atmospheric CO2 and that that rise in turn caused a rise in the global temperature.

And they were half right.  CO2 levels did shoot up steadily in that timeframe.  But here is the catch:  Temperature levels did not.  They plateaued. Over a 30 year period from 1945 to 1975 there was no rise in the global temperature.  Temperatures just bobbed up and down around a static average.  Temperatures at the end of the period were essentially the same as at the beginning.  It would be hard to think of a clearer disproof of the temperature effects of CO2.  When Warmists are confronted by that fact they mumble something about "special factors".  Special factors that exactly  cancelled out rising CO2 effects for 30 years?


Conservatives have long been skeptical of certain scientific claims, especially in regard to the science behind man-made global warming.

However, a study by the University of Oxford suggests that there may be a reason for that. In fact, they go as far as to say that conservatives have a “right” to be skeptical of scientists.

The study “Does activism in the Social Sciences Explain Conservatives’ Distrust of Scientists?” was led by Professor of Biology for the University of Oxford Nathan Confas and was first published online back in 2017. However, the study was brought to light again when it was republished this month in the recent issue of the American Sociologist.

While conservatives’ distrust in scientists has increasingly decreased every year since 1974, there has been little understanding as to why.

The research hits the well-repeated claim that conservatives often dismiss scientific claims because they contradict their religious beliefs. There are some who believe that conservatives throw out these scientific claims because, as Confas and his team note, it “threatens their worldview.”

However, Confas told Campus Reform that this was a “misguided approach.” Additionally, he said that “liberals and conservatives are equally likely to discredit science if it conflicts with their world-view.”

Confas proposed that the reason so many conservatives are skeptical is that there is an increase of liberalism within the scientific community.

He cited a recent study to prove his point. The study surveyed 479 sociology professors, and only 4 percent identified as conservative or libertarian. Compare this with the 86 percent who identify themselves as liberal or left-radical.

Additionally, Confas suggests that goal of sociology “involves reorganizing society to fight inequality, oppression, poverty, hierarchy, and the like. Its ideological orientation arose out of … civil rights, feminism, Marxism, and other progressive movements.”

But it’s not just the area of sociology where this bias is creeping in. UNT professor George Yancy published a piece titled, “Yes Academic Bias is a Problem and We Need to Address It.”

“Given the reality that academics are much more politically progressive and irreligious than the general population, one should be concerned about the potential of liberal and secular bias,” he wrote. “Those like myself are also concerned about academic bias simply because such bias can lead to bad science.”

It’s this “bias” that leads to “bad science” that is concerning to Confas. He told Campus Reform, “Taking the easy route isn’t something that I or my coauthors are tempted to do. We want to do our part to help correct the science.”

He added, “Conservatives are right to be skeptical. Take any politicized issue that is connected to some disagreement about scientific fact. I do not believe there is a single case in the last couple decades where a major scientific organization took a position that went against the platform of the Democratic Party.”

Flashback: Trump Stops Motorcade After Seeing Firefighters in Full Turnouts

President Donald Trump has made respect for the men and women who serve our communities a top priority for his administration. Whether it’s police or firefighters, he’s been conspicuously generous with his praise.

That translates into plenty of speeches and tweets, but also real-world displays like this one from Bethpage, New York.

According to BizPac Review, the incident took place in May as the president was leaving a forum on illegal immigration. (Long Island has seen a wave of violence from the MS-13 gang. The president spent part of the meeting paying tribute to families who had lost loved ones to the violence.)

That’s not what got everyone talking, however. What has created a buzz was a bunch of firemen standing to salute the president in their full turnouts — fire helmets, jackets, boots, the whole nine yards.

And, as it turned out, the president was more than willing to salute them by stopping his motorcade. The video shows several vehicles go by as the firemen are saluting. Then, as the presidential limo came by, it stopped.

A few individuals emerged from the limo, after which the very familiar figure of President Trump could be seen getting out.

Cheers greeted the president as he walked over to the group. He eventually signalled the men to come over and the two sides greeted each other warmly.

“Thank you, thank you,” Trump said as he shook the hands of the firemen.

“That’s awesome!” one of the firefighters could be heard saying. And, indeed, you can’t say they didn’t get the experience of a lifetime.

YouTube users seemed to agree. “Best president ever!” one wrote.  “President Trump…..a man for the people. He loves America and he loves her people,” another wrote.

Keep in mind that full firefighter turnout gear isn’t exactly a) light or b) cool. May isn’t the coolest month in New York, either. For these guys to be out in the street with their full gear on says a lot about how they feel about the president.

Then again, the president has said a lot about how he feels about them. Just this past weekend, Trump told an Ohio rally audience that his administration is “standing up for the heroes who protect our country.”

If these firemen are any indication, that relationship is definitely reciprocal.

Elizabeth Warren under fire after ripping U.S. criminal-justice system at Netroots Nation

She's just solid evil

Republican Senate hopeful Beth Lindstrom called Monday on Sen. Elizabeth Warren to apologize for denouncing the U.S. criminal-justice system as “racist … front to back.”

“Sen. Warren needs to apologize to every police officer, judge, corrections department employee, probation worker and the many other honest and decent people in our criminal justice system who have been smeared by her alienating and careless rhetoric,” Ms. Lindstrom said in a statement.

She referred to Ms. Warren’s comments Friday at Netroots Nation, an annual left-wing gathering, where the Democratic senator appeared as part of a session at Dillard University in New Orleans.

“Let’s just start with the hard truth about our criminal justice system,” Ms. Warren said. “It’s racist. It is. And when I say our system, I mean all the way. I mean front to back. We’re talking about the front end on what you declare to be illegal; on how you enforce it, on who gets arrested.”

Those taking umbrage at the Democratic senator’s blast included the right-leaning Boston Herald editorial board, which asked, “Is there any hard-working American who Elizabeth Warren has not condemned?”

“The United States is a terrible place. At least that appeared to be the theme of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s ominous chat at a historically black college on Friday,” said the Herald op-ed headlined, “Liz Warren keeps playing blame game.”

Ms. Lindstrom, one of three Republicans seeking the party’s nomination in the Sept. 4 primary, accused Ms. Warren of smearing those who work in the justice system to boost her chances for a possible presidential run in 2020.

“Words like this are polarizing and divisive: completely used for personal political gain for 2020, without regard for how they sound to the many good people in Massachusetts and around the country who are punishing criminals, keeping us safe and administering justice,” Ms. Lindstrom said.

Others pointed out that until recently, the Justice Department was headed by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who succeeded Eric Holder during the Obama administration. Both are black.

A compromise that might be needed for immigration reform

Rejection of House Republicans’ “compromise” immigration bill on June 27 by a lopsided 121-301 margin may be exactly what is needed to end the decades long immigration reform gridlock, if more-moderate House conservatives learn the right lesson from the bill’s failure.

The compromise bill was intended to attract support from these more moderate Republicans after a more restrictionist bill proposed by Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), was defeated 193-231 the previous week. Neither of the bills received a single Democratic vote.

In truth the votes, rather than serious attempts to fix immigration policy, were just political theater in advance of this Fall’s midterm elections. Everyone involved knew that neither bill would attract the necessary Democratic support needed to pass the Senate.

Because Goodlatte’s bill, which would have created legal protection for fewer immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and more severely restricted future legal immigration, received greater support, there is danger that Republicans will believe that more restrictive immigration bills may have more of a chance of passing in the future.

Although President Trump ultimately supported the compromise bill, he had previously tweeted that “Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November” and that “We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!”

That’s exactly the wrong lesson. Republicans are so deeply divided on this issue that even if they gain seats in both houses of Congress, immigration reform would still require bipartisan support to become law. To get bipartisan support they’ll have to forgo the votes of those members of Congress who want to decrease legal immigration. Both recent proposals alienated Democrats with changes that would have decreased future legal immigration through existing family reunification visas.

Though you might not know it from the angry rhetoric, U.S. public opinion has been becoming more favorable, not less, on immigration in recent years. According the Gallup Poll that asks “Should Immigration Be Kept at Its Present Level, Increased, or Decreased?” 39 percent of respondents said immigration should be kept at current levels. While 29 percent said immigration levels should decrease, that number was down from 38 percent two years ago. Similarly, the 28 percent that said immigration should increase was up from 21 percent two years ago. Opinions have trended in these directions for decades and two years of President Trump’s rhetoric hasn’t changed this. As the opinions of voters continue their trend in this direction, politicians will ultimately follow.

Any immigration reform bill that stands a chance of becoming law, with the current Congress or in the foreseeable future, will need to be less restrictive than the ones the Republicans just proposed. That’s a good thing, not just for immigrants, but for native born Americans as well.

Economists who study immigration do not find the negative consequences that many people imagine. Immigration raises the income, on average, of the native born. Immigrants create about as many jobs as they take and they don’t depress wages of the vast majority of Americans.

Passable immigration reform today would likely trade funding for a border wall for a legal pathway to citizenship for immigrants brought to the United States illegally when they were children. Law and order Republicans could claim that they were securing the border and they could defend themselves against charges of “amnesty.” Since this reform only applies to people brought here as children, they could point out that when children break most other laws in the United States they are held to a lesser standard than adults and that this is no different.

Democrats would be wise to sign on to such deal too. Net migration from Mexico has been negative since the Great Recession. So, while symbolic, the wall would do little to change immigration numbers.

Such a reform would still leave 11 to 12 million immigrants, most of whom contribute to our overall prosperity, in the United States illegally. But no politically viable proposal is possible for them at the moment. Hopefully, if voters’ opinions continue to move in the direction they have been moving, even this may be possible in the future.

          Hoops Hello: Cole Bajema      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hoops Hello: Cole Bajema Brian August 6th, 2018 at 12:57 PM

A couple years ago Cole Bajema was a 6'1" shooting guard at a 1A school in Lynden, Washington who was barely more likely to get a Big Ten basketball scholarship than a ham sandwich*. Now he's a 6'7" shooting guard headed to Michigan, and he doesn't even qualify as a sleeper any more. That says something about Bajema, who blew up when his unsponsored AAU team finally got to a tournament with scouts at it, and something about John Beilein, who treated Bajema like a major priority as soon as he saw him at camp:

During the first weekend of the July evaluation period, Michigan assistant coach DeAndre Haynes flew from an event in Atlanta to Seattle to watch Bajema. The following weekend in Pomona, California, Beilein was one of the first people in the gym, according to Brady, for Bajema's 8 a.m. tip-off. And last weekend, Beilein was in Vegas to get another look.

Though Bajema was not the only player Michigan was scouting at these events, he was a focal point.

"It never felt like Cole was on the back-burner or not a priority," Brady said. "It was interesting to see how much effort they put in for a kid on the Canadian border who nobody had really heard of."

The pure misery of the mid-major coaches when they saw Beilein walk into the gym must have been something.

Let's play the Feud!

*[it's reporting a Rutgers offer]

GURU RATINGS

Rivals ESPN 247 247 Comp
3*, NR NR 4*, 95 rating
#61 overall, #17 SF
N/A

Most of the scouting services haven't caught up with Bajema just yet. He was also in the virtually unranked bucket at 24/7 until his commitment prompted them to release his post-blowup ranking a bit early. A couple of Rivals analysts have mentioned Bajema positively on Twitter so he might get the same kind of bump there when they get around to it. Who knows about ESPN these days but they do have a couple of guys who scout the AAU scene pretty heavily. It might take them longer since they just did an update.

The upshot is that Bajema is probably going to be a consensus top 100 guy and his composite probably won't differ much from his current 24/7 ranking. A sleeper he is not. He's also more or less done being evaluated. He can go back to Lynden and score 80 points a game and nobody will see it. Which is fine.

[Hit THE JUMP for scouting, video, and the rest.]

SCOUTING

Literally everything not from UMHoops is based off a couple of open-entry AAU tournaments that Bajema starred in a earlier this summer, so there's no development story here. It's "here's this guy. He's pretty good." Virtually anyone who saw Bajema named him to some sort of risers list. 24/7's Josh Gershon:

"...good size and length, impressive athleticism, a pure shooting stroke with range to the perimeter, ball skills, a quick first step, crafty finishing ability and plus vision. He has nothing but upside as there's plenty of room for him to gain strength and as does, his game should only continue to improve."

Bajema featured in two other posts about players standing out in Las Vegas...

 

...breakout ... good size for the position, is very physically immature with plenty of room to get stronger and has an impressive skill set. Bajema has range to three with his jumper, can really pass it, has a respectable handle and is pretty good athlete.

 

Aaand there it is:

... has a lot of value as a shooter, but he’s not just that. He showed good footwork, fine mechanics, deep range and the ability to deck it and make a play. He’s still thin at this stage, but he’s extremely fluid, has long arms and is oozing with potential.

I wish I could bet on these things.

Elsewhere, Rivals's Eric Bossi also named him a riser after Las Vegas because he "looked like one of the best shooters in the country" and "can put the ball on the floor to create shots and moves pretty well laterally." That latter will be important if he's really going to be a 6'7" two-guard.

His coach on the game that got him his first big offers:

“The game that kind of sealed the deal for most of the guys came against Howard Pulley. They’ve got solid players across the board,” Brady said. “We started the game down 20-4, but Cole scored the next 17 and went to work. He put it on the floor, finished through contract, and ones, deep threes against a team that’s good loaded with solid, Division I guys throughout the roster.

“He took over. They switched four or five defenders on him, but it didn’t work. He had 31 points, and really showed he was not only capable of playing well, but doing it against high-level competition."

And a more general take from him:

“He’s great in ball-screen situations, which he’ll have a chance to do in that system. I think he projects as a play-making combo guard,” Brady said. “He’s a fantastic ball-handler in the half-court. He can shoot it on his own, he’s got great vision, and he’s got the length to see over the defense. He can actually capitalize on (his vision), he can make all the passes that he needs to make.”

And Matt Bain goes old school ESPN BOOM BANG scouting:

He played guard his whole life and entered high school at 6-1 before spurting up to 6-7 by his junior year. His handle is crisp. His passing is pinpoint. His long-range shot is a high-arching beauty. His decision-making off a ball screen is smart. His first step is quicker than what you’d expect from a 6-7 player.

“If he’s a 6-7 wing with his weight, he’s maybe not quite a high-major player. But as a combo guard at 6-7 — with the way he shoots it, the way he handles it, the way he passes it — all of a sudden that became very interesting to (schools),” Brady said. “I think people are starting to see what he is as a basketball player — that he can be a combo guard, he can be a 6-7 creator. He’s not a wing; he’s a guy where you put the ball in his hands and he makes plays for people.”

There's also an extensive profile from the local paper if you want to know the particular mania it takes to be a D-I player in Lynden.

OFFERS

Xavier, Virginia, Oregon State, and Washington offered after Bajema's breakout AAU performance. Various mid-majors had also offered.

HIGH SCHOOL

Lynden Christian has not sent any basketball players to DI in the Rivals era. Luke Ridnour is from nearby Blaine, though. Bajema was named 1A player of the year but mostly I'm linking this because "Nooksack Valley." Heh.

STATS

23 PPG in high school.

VIDEO

Tape from Las Vegas:

This is from last year:

PREDICTION BASED ON FLIMSY EVIDENCE

A super-sized, rail-thin combo guard sounds like Caris Levert again, doesn't it? Your other recent comparable is, yes, Nik Stauskas, who became a 6'6" combo guard and pick-and-roll expert in his second and final year in Ann Arbor. I like 'em both.

UPSHOT FOR THE REST OF THE CLASS

Bajema and TX SF Jalen Wilson are likely it for now. Michigan's already oversigned by one, technically; I imagine Charles Matthews was explicit that this was his last year when he decided to return. Adding a third player to the class would (probably) require Michigan to have a pretty good idea that someone else was headed for a transfer or the pros. That's possible but Michigan is unlikely to be confident enough in that departure until the late signing period.

At that point the only players left on the board are the five star one-and-done types and deep sleepers. Michigan is in on WA PF Jaden McDaniels, sort of. Franz Wagner is also out there, being a Wagner. If it's not Wagner, a third player in the class is more likely to be a Caris Levert sort who Beilein unearths.

  • Is mayo considered an impermissible benefit?
  • Let's say Sandwich is guarding Poole, and Poole decides to take a bite for every three he makes. When Jordan then goes 15-15 on him , could he then be convicted for  HAMslaughter?

really excited about Bajema... was going to say he seems like your typical Beilein 'sleeper' except the kid blew up... 61 is higher than Staukas or Brandon Johns...

but credit to Beilein and co, who have been on him since April...albeit a lot of that is a result of Bajema's coach reaching out and Bajema making his way to Michigan's Elite camp...

a 6'7" (possibly 6'8 by the time he enrolls) combo guard is really enticing... i don't think his handle is as good as a guy like Jalen was, but having him in the back court is something you know has Beilein rubbing his hands with glee...ditto with Haynes and Yaklich if he sticks as a 2 could be really exciting

Taller Nik Stauskas? I'm a fan.

Also, am I being too ambitious and perhaps seeing Bajema as a primary ball handler/ point-forward in certain sets?

tough question; i don't think he discussed playing the one, though i suppose it could happen depending on fouls or who the match up is against...

he did talk about hoping to get a chance at the 2 spot tho, so conceivably like MAAR i guess?

excited to see how he does here

Anyone know how tall Bajema was in those 2 highlight videos? He doesn't look 6'7" in those videos so I'm guessing those were made during his growth spurt

Today's post at UMHoops is worth a read for anyone who's a subscriber there - and if you aren't, you should be.  Basically he said similar things to Brian but gets into the future of the class a bit more with names.  Specifically, Michigan is likely done with all of the similar 3.5-4 star guys you've heard about all cycle.  They'll keep the 5-starts and Wagner on the line until the spring when they have a better feel for their ability to find another spot.  He also talks about Beilein following the trend of "positionless basketball".

August 6th, 2018 at 4:00 PM Augmented Reality headset Magic Leap now available for $2,295

Perhaps the most hyped Virtual, and by Virtual I mean Augmented, Reality headset, Magic Leap, ever has been released to the public. However, the Microsoft HoloLens -like AR headset is by no means everybody's entertainment device, for few reasons.

Magic Leap can be now ordered in six cities in the United States: Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Seattle. But even if you live in one of these places, the price might put you off. See, the price for what seems to still be a fairly exclusive product, is $2,295, not including VAT.

If you still want to shell out the cash, you might want to know what you are spending your money on. The hotly anticipated AR device comes in a three pieces with the headset itself being one of them obviously. You also get one touchpad controller as well as the computing part of the operation called the Lightpack.

Included in the Lightpack is Nvidia's Parker mobile CPU, a GPU based on Pascal architecture, eight gigabytes of RAM and 128 GB flash storage. According to the company the battery can run the device for up to 3 hours at a time, which should be more than enough to tire your eyes.

Connectivity-wise Magic Leap supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 and USB-C.

According to some early reviews, including at
The Verge, the experience wasn't as polished as expected, although certainly impressive. The technology didn't provide a meaningless upgrade to what could be considered previous gen devices like the HoloLens.

Tom Thank you for remembering the hundreds of millions who have no electricity at all, and have to pay cash to a kiosk to get their phones charged once a week to receive text messages from family employed in the cities. The Minister is talking common sense - a rare commodity as we know. Curiously, in several countries in Central "Cold" Asia, electricity is taken as a right, and virtually the entire population has it (over 95%), even if they do not use it for heating. My point is that soon there will be a greater % of Australians without reliable electricity than people living in rural Kyrgyzstan or Kazakhstan. You know your economy is in trouble when your social metrics are outperformed by the 'Stans (apologies to the 'Stans for using you as an example - there are others). And how much does electricity cost the poor in Kyrgyzstan? It was recently increased to $0.02 per KWH from $0.015. Suck on that, Sydney.

          CT Virtual Colonoscopy Results      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Hi All,

 

54 yr old male.  First colonoscopy.  My mother passed away from Colon Cancer at the age of 65. 

 

I decided on the CT Virtual Colonoscopy.  In Northern CA, only Stanford Health Care and UC San Francisco off this service.  The amount of medicine you

have to swallow seems to be less with CT Virtual than traditional.  The lemon flavored Saline solution was fine as long as you had a nice piece of gum at

the ready.  The Barium Sulfate solution was torture.  It was banana flavored.  Very thick, and I felt like gagging with every drink.  But you only have to

drink half the bottle.  The next two small bottles you drink, I mixed one bottle with apple juice.  Not bad, not good.  The next bottle I decided to add

to salty broth hoping it would kill the flavor.  The heat of the broth seemed to intensify the awful flavor.  Started the process around noon, and completed

my anus peeing at about 11:00 PM.  Arrive for 8:00 AM appointment, and enter CT room.  They place a small tube in your anus and start pumping CO2

up there to enlarge the colon.  I was afraid if I farted, I would anus pee, but the nurse said it would just go into the tube and it is designed to handle this. 

Lie flat, lie on stomach, lie on side, all in about five minutes, and I'm done.  The CO2 just felt like you had to fart immensely.  Not really uncomfortable. 

 

So the results

 

7MM pedunculated polyp located 70 CM from rectum near splenic fixture

9 MM sessile polyp in the proximal transverse colon

9 MM sessile polyp in the distal ascending colon approx 179 cm from the rectum

6 MM sessile polyp in the proximal ascending colon

Multiple other tiny sessile foci in the colon less than 5mm in size

 

So I don't think that is bad, it is about what I expected.  Not sure if I'm going to be able to stop the cancer onset when it comes.  By the time they

knew my mother had cancer, her sessile polyp was stage 4 and was ripped out of the colon wall and blocked her entirely with tremendous pain.

Emergency surgery to remove it, but her CT scans showed liver, breast, and brain cancer.  If anyone had similar findings on their colonoscopies,

I'd be interested to hear about your progressions over the next ten years.  If I get another ten years before this attacks, that's cool

 

Regards

          Magic Leap launches its first product      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Magic Leap, the secretive virtual reality company, announced the launch of its long-awaited first commercial product on Wednesday.

The details: Priced at $2,295, the Magic Leap One Creator Edition is an augmented reality headset that "brings digital content to life here in the real world with us," per the company's press release, by superimposing computer-generated effects over the user's surroundings.


The big picture: Magic Leap has spent years raising billions of dollars from investors without a product to show for it. Now, the company will face its first real test as reactions roll in.

A quick take: CNBC reporter Todd Haselton, who was invited to test out the headset, writes the "experience with the goggles...was like a computer-generated 3-D world with real depth."

  • His bottom line: "The Magic Leap One is impressive, and it's unlike any computer I've used before. I see a real future in being able to interact with digital screens inside the real world around us, but Magic Leap is going to need to convince everyone else of that, too. ... I imagine we're years away from the Magic Leap that's ready for the rest of us."

MODULO III: EL LIBRO DE HECHOS
EL MINISTERIO DE PEDRO 

PARA MEMORIZAR“Entonces Pedro, abriendo la boca, dijo: En verdad comprendo que Dios no hace acepción de personas, sino que en toda nación se agrada del que le teme y hace justicia.” (Hech. 10:34, 35).

    Con la partida de Pablo hacia Tarso, Pedro vuelve a ser el personaje principal en la narración de Lucas de los primeros días de la iglesia cristiana. Pedro es retratado en una especie de ministerio itinerante en toda Judea y las regiones circundantes. Hechos aquí relata dos breves historias de milagros: la curación de Eneas y la resurrección de Tabita (Dorcas), y luego viene la historia de Cornelio en el capítulo 10.
    La conversión de los gentiles era el tema más controvertido en la iglesia apostólica. Aunque las discusiones que siguieron al bautismo de Cornelio distaban mucho de resolver todas las dificultades, el derramamiento del Espíritu, que recordaba lo sucedido en Pentecostés, ayudó a convencer a Pedro y a los hermanos de Jerusalén de que las bendiciones del evangelio no estaban restringidas a los judíos. Mientras tanto, la iglesia de Antioquía ya había comenzado a avanzar hacia los gentiles también.
   El estudio de esta semana también incluye el surgimiento de una nueva y breve persecución (esta vez impulsada por el rey Herodes) y su impacto en los apóstoles, que se habían salvado de la persecución impulsada por Pablo.

En toda enseñanza verdadera, es esencial el elemento personal. En su enseñanza, Cristo trató individualmente con los hombres. Educó a los doce por medio del trato y la asociación personal. Sus más preciosas instrucciones fueron dadas en privado, y con frecuencia a un solo oyente.

          The Knowledge Matters school tour: A visit to seven schools adopting high-quality English language arts curricula      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Editor’s note: This article originally appeared in a slightly different form on CenterPoint Education Solutions’ blog.

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of visiting a group of schools across the country distinguished by their embrace of high-quality curriculum. The tour was sponsored by the Knowledge Matters Campaign, which seeks to lift up the stories of schools that use knowledge-rich English language arts curriculum to promote educational excellence, provide equity, and inspire in students a passion for learning.

The campaign is particularly interested in drawing attention to schools and curricula that bring a joyous, knowledge-filled schooling experience to students of poverty, as they have been the ones particularly harmed by a skills-based approach that is arguably one of the most significant factors in reading scores remaining flat over the past twenty years (see this article published by the Campaign last month), to say nothing of driving out a love of learning in our young people.

Most of the schools we visited on the tour had adopted a curriculum highly rated by EdReports, the independent non-profit organization that, for the past four years, has served as something of a Consumer Reports on Common Core-aligned curriculum. Three key instructional shifts: regular practice with complex texts and their academic language; reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from texts; and building knowledge through content-rich curriculum, underpin the Common Core standards in English language arts and are what guide the reviews on EdReports.

The schools included on the tour employed a variety of instructional approaches and represented different geographic locations, demographic diversity, and governance structures. The common feature was their commitment to knowledge-rich schooling and their faith in comprehensive, high-quality curriculum, implemented school-wide, as a means of achieving it.

So, what stood out to us as we visited these schools? Without a doubt, the most salient feature—which was, in fact, a distinguishing feature (as it was in stark contrast to our experience in schools last fall that had not embraced the importance of knowledge-building)—was the fact that all students were engaged with grade-level complex texts. While we certainly saw the full range of student reading levels one would expect of a school serving high-need students (including typically large numbers of English learners), in each classroom we visited, texts were interrogated communally, thus exposing students, who may not have been able to read all the words on the page, to key vocabulary and content knowledge. Importantly, all kids got to discuss, amongst themselves, the ideas in the text. This is huge. As Jaden, a previously struggling reader at Monticello-Brown Summit Elementary School in Greensboro, North Carolina, told me, “I like it when we read it (a book) together because you can get others’ opinions. I like being in book arguments.”

Another profound experience of the tour was the amount of content knowledge these students were exposed to. A recent survey by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute found that 56 percent of ELA teachers worry, “not enough attention has been paid to building students’ general knowledge,” with 46 percent saying their curriculum and/or instructional materials “do a poor job of building students’ general knowledge.” A brief review of the travel blog associated with the Knowledge Matters School Tour will reveal a very different story, with topics—mind you, for K–8 students—ranging from the War of 1812, Athenian governance, medieval Europe, the lost colony of Roanoke, Galileo, animal anatomy, patterns in nature, Greek mythology, etc.

It’s no wonder, given how much kids like to “learn stuff,” that a final standout feature of the schools we visited was virtually no disciplinary problems. The look and feel—what some would call the school culture—at Maryvale, a classical school in Phoenix, and Detroit Prep/Detroit Achievement Academy, which both use EL Education 2.0 (formerly named Expeditionary Learning), were studies in contrast. But the level of student engagement was uniformly high. In both cases, and indeed in each school we visited, there was a palpable sense—among kids and adults alike—that real learning was taking place, that knowledge was expanding.

The word I most associate with the Knowledge Matters School Tour is “confidence.” While teachers told us that learning the new curriculum was the hardest thing they’d ever done in teaching, they’ve also report it being among the best things to have happened to them professionally. After years of floundering, knowing they weren’t really meeting their students’ needs but not knowing what to do about it, they report now being more certain that they’re preparing their students for academic success in the future.

When we asked the teachers to give advice to colleagues around the country who might be at the start of their journey with a new, high-quality curriculum, we generally got some version of, “have faith in the curriculum.” For many, it wasn’t until they’d gone through the school year that they developed a full appreciation. “I had to see the whole picture” says a second-grade teacher in Dayton who added, “This is by far my best year of teaching in seventeen years.”

More importantly even than these teachers’ journey to professional confidence was what we saw and heard from the kids. As Aurora, a fifth-grade student in Riverside, California, told me, “We learn higher level things and we are not afraid to share what we learn.”

The enduring images of the Knowledge Matters School Tour are of deep and shared engagements with a wide range of quality informational and literary texts; a high volume of reading; students receiving far more science, social studies/history, and art instruction than is currently seen in the average public school; and near universal confidence among students—from the smallest kindergartners to students ready to advance on to middle or high school—that they were in good hands, and that their school was preparing them for the academic challenges that lay ahead.

Would that every child could feel this way about their school…

          The U.N. should not remain passive in the face of human wrongs in Kashmir: Dr. Fai      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai Kashmir is one of the most idyllic setting in the world. A picturesque valley located between Pakistan, India, Afghanistan, China and with a small strip of 27 miles with Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. Kashmir is a natural paradise. The history of the freedom of Kashmir dates back 1931 when the people of Kashmir, both Hindus and Muslims initiated a freedom movement against the then Maharaja (Ruler) to have their own indigenous rule in Kashmir. The resentment of the people led to the ‘Quit Kashmir’ campaign against the Maharaja in 1946. Faced with the insurgency of his people, the Maharaja fled the capitol, Srinagar, on October 25, 1947 and arranged that India send its army to help him crush the rebellion. India, coveting the territory, set the condition that Maharaja must sign an ‘Instrument of Accession’ to India. At the same time, India had to attach another condition that accession was made subject to ‘reference to the people.’ On India’s showing, therefore, the accession has a provisional character. Then India brought the dispute to the United Nations where the Security Council discussed the question exhaustively from January to April 1948. It was agreed upon by the Governments of India and Pakistan and approved by the international community that the dispute over the status of Jammu & Kashmir can be settled only in accordance with the will of the people which can be ascertained through the democratic method of a free and impartial plebiscite By adopting a number of resolutions from 1948 to 1962 reaffirming the principle of free choice for the people of Kashmir, the Security Council – and, therefore the United Nations – has assumed a moral responsibility to ensure that conditions in Kashmir will permit the exercise of that choice. To disown that responsibility would expose the world organization to the charge of making hollow promises and, indeed, deceiving a population which is larger than that of many Members of the United Nations individually. The people of Kashmir never lost hope either in the United Nations as the custodian of human rights, or in their demand to exercise the right of self-determination. The scale of the popular backing of the uprising in Kashmir can be judged from the established fact, that on many occasions during the month of July-August 2018, virtually the entire population of Srinagar and major towns in the Valley came out on the streets in an unparalleled demonstrations to protest the attempt by the Government of India to scrap the Article 35 A of the Indian constitution which gives the special rights and privileges to the state subject of Jammu and Kashmir. Article 35 A also bars foreigners to buy the land or to acquire immovable property, etc. in the State. The Joint Resistance Leadership and other legal, religious and business fraternities believe that the abrogation of this constitutional provision is a conspiracy to change the demographic composition of the state. However, the Supreme Court of India adjourned the hearting of Article 35-A till August 27, 2018. In response to the peaceful and massive demonstrations, much inhumanity, continuous violations of basic rights, frequent massacres, constant fear, hunger and misery – these are the gifts of Indian occupation to the people of Kashmir. For the populous South Asian subcontinent, the Kashmir situation entails recurrent possibility of disaster and nuclear war. There is a way to bring these atrocities to an end. The way is that the Secretary General of the United Nations uses its moral and legal authority to reinvoke peaceful dialogue between the Governments of India & Pakistan along with the legitimate representatives of the people of Kashmir for the final settlement of the dispute. The Charter of the United Nations empowers the Secretary General of the United Nations to bring any matter which may threaten the maintenance of internal peace and security to the attention of the Security Council. In consistence with the universally accepted principle that no situation should be allowed to escalate to a point of no return and that the United Nations should not remain passive in the face of human wrongs being committed on a vast scale, the people of Kashmir expect the Secretary General will not hesitate to exercise his discretion and put the Kashmir issue on the active international agenda. Should the Secretary General feel that the factual data at his disposal does not justify the use of his power under Article 99 of the UN Charter, we respectfully propose that the Secretary General urgently dispatch a special representative of high international standing to India and Pakistan who should visit both parts of Kashmir and report back to the Security Council the facts of the situation. In fact, ‘United Nations High Commissioner on Human Rights’ has also recommended to send a fact-finding mission to Kashmir to assess the situation there. If India feels that it has nothing to hide, it should welcome such action. We feel confident that the Secretary General of the United Nations will not encourage any party to an international dispute which has been taken cognizance of by the United Nations to circumvent and rebuff the world organization. It should be one thing for the United Nations to remain inactive if an alternative and credible peace process were in motion. It is another when not even the beginning of an effort towards arriving at a settlement bilaterally between the parties or through mediation by friendly governments is visible. To put it plainly, the present situation is that the United Nations is allowing its resolutions to be dishonored and the people of Kashmir to be condemned to systematic destruction. The people of Kashmir deserve better. Dr. Fai is the Secretary General of World Kashmir Awareness Forum and can be reached at : 1-202-607-6435 or gnfai2003@yahoo.com

          South Arkansas districts lose bid to block school transfers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Federal Judge Susan Hickey of El Dorado refused today to allow the Hope, Lafayette County, Junction City and Camden Fairview school districts to block student transfers for this school year under the state's expansive interdistrict transfer law.

The judge said the districts hadn't demonstrated irreparable financial harm from the transfers. She has not decided the underlying merits of the school districts' effort to be exempted from the transfer law because of continuing obligations under federal desegregation lawsuits. That's protection the state says doesn't exist for the districts because their desegregation orders don't specifically bar interdistrict transfers. At the time their cases were settled, however, interdistrict transfers were impossible in Arkansas and thus not a factor for consideration. The districts want the existing orders changed to reflect that.

I've written at length on these cases. They are among a handful of Arkansas districts exempt from the transfer law sold as "school choice" but inevitably favoring transfer of white students out of districts majority black or with heavy black populations. That was the case in all these transfer requests. The racial balance is so overwhelming the pro-transfer Education Department under Gov. Asa Hutchinson no longer tallies the racial impact of transfers. It doesn't care and doesn’t want to advertise racial impact.

The state is effectively aiding racial and economic segregation with the transfer law, something that was once not allowed by federal courts but now is more doable thanks to changing court precedent.

The judge issued orders for each of the four districts. Here's her order for Hope.

In each case, she focused on "irreparable harm." While students will be lost through transfer — and eventually state funding — there's a chance she said that the students could return if she were to eventually rule that the districts could use their court cases on desegregation obligations and force a return of those students. The state argued that Hope's loss of 69 students, all but one white, would be minor because it would only cause a drop of 5 percent in white enrollment.

But finances were paramount in the judge's mind. Funding for the 2018-19 year is already in place and those transfers won't affect this year's funding significantly, she wrote.

The reasoning was the same for the other districts. Camden will lose 15 students, Junction City 5 and Lafayette County 42.  The transfers are virtually all white.

Allen Roberts, attorney for the districts, hopes to persuade the judge in the cases to add school transfers as part of a continuation of the districts' ability to resist segregation. It is not good news for that argument — even though it was not addressed today — that a batch of transfers has been allowed to go forward.

But the judge took care to say these findings — on a lack of immediate financial damage — did not consider the larger question. She has turned back the state's effort to enforce the transfer in a couple of districts that clearly were exempted in desegregation orders.

It's a victory for the continuing resegregation of Arkansvas schools and, by extension, a victory for the Walton lobby which has pushed, through expenditures of millions on legislators, legislation and lobbying and legal challenges, unlimited school transfer, charter schools and other support of alternatives to traditional public school districts.

          Samsung Heavy Industries picks AWS to develop autonomous shipping      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Samsung Heavy Industries selected AWS as its preferred cloud provider.

Samsung Heavy Industries is developing an autonomous smart shipping system to enable the self-piloting of large container ships, LNG carriers, and floating production systems. The company will use the breadth of AWS’s services, including machine learning, augmented reality and virtual reality, analytics, databases, compute, and storage to develop this platform. This includes Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon Simple Storage Solution (Amazon S3), AWS Key Management Service (KMS), and AWS CloudTrail to create integrated systems for all vessel-related data collected from land to sea.

“We’re digitizing our shipping fleet by using the most advanced technologies in the world to enhance our approaches to shipbuilding, operations, and delivery, and chose AWS as our preferred cloud provider to help us quickly transform Samsung Heavy Industries’ into a cloud-first maritime business,” said Dongyeon Lee, Director of Ship & Offshore Performance Research Center at Samsung Heavy Industries. “By leveraging AWS, we’ve successfully released several smart shipping systems so that our customers can manage their ships and fleets more efficiently, and we continue to test new capabilities for ocean-bound vessel navigation and automation. AWS delivers a highly flexible environment, with the broadest and deepest portfolio of cloud services, that is ideal for accelerating research and development across the company, and it has enabled our developers and data scientists to bring new ideas to market at an unprecedented pace.”
