Like more than 100 million other Americans, the 74-year-old from Winston-Salem, N.C., has high blood pressure, and she has been taking medication to control it since she was in her 30s. So when she read that her nearby hospital, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, was looking for people with hypertension to volunteer for a study, she quickly signed up, knowing the doctors would monitor her blood pressure more intensively and hopefully lower her risk of developing heart disease and stroke.

          Comment on Criminal Tweets: Trump Critics Should Not Respond To Acts Of “Fake News” With Fake Law by Tom Nash      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Mr. Kurtz,... Clinton probably did feel compelled to testify once the threat of a subpeona was put on the table. That hasn't happened, yet, with Mueller-Trump, but it may not be far off. Clinton may have had a different response, even under threat of subpeona, had his former campaign manager been treated to a pre-dawn no knock raid. And had his lawyer's home, office, and hotel room been raided. I don't remember Starr stacking his team with hyper-partisan aggresive prosecutors, but it was a long time ago. Nor do I remember Starr having a long-standing professional relationship and friendship with a key figure in that saga. 20 years after Clinton decided to testify, these things I've mentioned are some of the different characteristics of the Mueller probe from the Starr investigation. I think it's led to an "F.Y." response from Trump and his legal team to Mueller. If Mueller does suboeona Trump, I think the response will be "and the horse you rode in on", and we'll go from there to the courts for ruling.

          Outreach Specialist - Email Marketing, Email Sales, Email Response - Upwork      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hi there,

Are you interested in business, tech, or cryptocurrency? If so we're looking for someone who can help us manage our automated outreach as an Outreach Associate.

Here's a bit about what we're doing:

I have a consulting agency that has worked with a number of interesting clients in the tech space and blockchain space. We help companies with their PR and their Marketing. We're starting to hyper focus on Marketing Strategy and PR only for blockchain companies - and want to connect with the hundreds of interesting blockchain startups that are out there.

We need someone to help us make this happen.

If you work with myself and our team you'll have the ability to learn about one of the fastest growing industries in the world. I used to work in the marketing and advertising industry - and have managed and taught dozens of people how to sell millions of dollars in advertisements - all via email and phone. I will be able to help you become razor sharp in this manner.

You'll also learn about cryptocurrency and tech. You've undoubtedly heard about Bitcoin - but aren't sure about the whole industry? Bitcoin is at $6000+ right now (and hit a peak of $21,000 per Bitcoin). You'll learn about the industry here - why it's taking off, and get behind the scenes access to some of the things I'm doing in the space. I'm running a growing podcast called the Know Your ICO Show, am writing a book on cryptocurrency, and have worked in the industry for a little while. I'll also be doing more and more speaking engagements soon.

You'll also have the ability to expand repsonsibility when the time is right - I work with designers, developers, videographers, other marketers and more.

I'm looking for someone who can join our team on a part time bases, learn the ropes quickly, has extremely high attention to detail (cliche right?) and who is fast. Speed is key.

I will send you our values deck should you be a good fit.

You'd be responsible for:
- handling automated outreach
- building the email funnel - in one of the email programs we use
- responding to the emails as they come in
- sending 30emails per day if the automation tool is not working
- sending the right documents / pitch decks if someone should ask
- sending the right Calendly links to help people get scheduled for intro calls and more
- follow-up, follow-up, follow-up
- tracking results in a google doc / sheet
- follow-up, follow-up, follow-up

Hope to hear from you!

Please - DO NOT APPLY IF:
- you don't like speed
- you can't commit to responding to emails in less than 24h
- you aren't up for a challenge (I'm going to push you)
- you have excuses for why xyz can't happen - we don't tollerate that, we expect you to find a way
- you aren't interested in trying new things

Okay, Trump isn't really going to be pee-boarding anyone (darn it), but just because a story isn't true is no reason not to report it.  At least, in 2017 that seems to be the prevailing journalistic philosophy after a number of news outlets, with varying degrees of enthusiasm and hyperbole, published reports that the Russians were ready to blackmail Donald Trump with secret videos of the billionaire in a Moscow hotel room, paying prostitutes to perform a "golden showers" scenario (peeing) on a bed once used by Barack and Michelle Obama.

The only problem is that there's no evidence whatsoever that this ever happened. None. It's complete and utter claptrap, and less believable than the rumor that the Russians have video of the night the Obamas used that hotel room and someone ended up getting a "dirty Sanchez." (If you don't know the term, for the love of all that's holy don't look it up.  Let's just say it's a sexual act invented by liberals who really, really deserve to be turned into pillars of salt.)

At a press conference on Wednesday, Trump quickly dismissed the preposterous tale - and subsequently refused to take questions from a CNN reporter because that organization was one of the purveyors of this "fake news." Score one for The Donald!

The so-called "Trump Blackmail" dossier has apparently been kicking around for months, with many people in government and media aware of its existence, but unable to do anything with it since none of the accusations held up to scrutiny. Which is frequently the case when a story is complete and utter bullcrap.

Still, the fictitious scandal developed a life of its own behind closed doors. If we're getting the story right (which seems quaint, doesn't it?), the dossier found its way into the hands of John McCain who was so stunned by the scatological accusations that he spat out the acorns he'd been storing in his cheeks for winter.

McCain then gave the report to FBI Director (and unindicted Hillary co-conspirator) James Comey, who - instead of burning the report and suggesting that McCain check into a 12-step program -  apparently slipped the information to perennial lunatic Harry Reid, who demanded the allegations be made public to derail Trump's run to the White House. This is, of course, the same Harry Reid who gleefully boasts about lying his ass off regarding Mitt Romney's taxes as an act of political sabotage.

(And on a side note, Harry, absolutely no one believes your story of getting your face battered and bruised by an exercise rubber band gone rogue. Rather, we strongly suspect that person or persons unknown beat the living tar out of you, then disappeared into the shadows before we could offer to buy them several rounds of drinks.)

Passed around as indiscriminately as Bill Clinton's DNA, the report eventually found it's way to the NBC-affiliated "news" website Buzzfeed (so named because Buttfeed was apparently already taken) which printed every scurrilous word online - kicking off a massive "me too" campaign of other alleged news organization linking to the story without even pretending to fact-check.

As alleged actress Meryl Streep said only days ago, "Disrespect invites disrespect" and "when the powerful use their positions to bully, we all lose. We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage."

So far, the real outrages seem to be generated by a press which has deserted anything remotely like principle.

Because "Mele Kalikimaka" is so difficult to pronounce
The left-leaning media is still hyperventilating about Russian interference with our election, going so far in some cases as to declare that we are no longer a free country and that Vladimir "Nice Pecs" Putin has successfully pulled off a massive coup d'etat. Apparently, his evil goal is to destroy us from within by facilitating the appointment of brain surgeons to cabinet positions.

All of which would seem considerably more like a terrifying existential crisis if Barack Obama cared enough to have skipped his annual bajillion-dollar Christmas getaway to the five-star environs of Hawaii. But there he is again, thousands of miles from the Oval Office - golfing, gnawing shave ice, eschewing any traditional symbols of Christmas or Christianity entirely, and (understandably) avoiding contact with family members as much as possible...

It's all the more impressive considering her deep sense of hopelessness.
Frankly, we're so sick of the first family and their wretched excesses that we pulled these cartoons out of the vault and can't really work up any enthusiasm about coming up with fresh ways to disparage them today. We're tired, we detest them, and we just want them gone.

Not that it's a bad start having them on Oahu. Which, by wild coincidence, is what we'll be shouting when they're escorted (hopefully forcefully) out of the White House on January 20th.

BONUS: A RANDOM HOLIDAY THOUGHT...
...to help us fill out the page at least a little more.
Seriously, why isn't PETA all over this?!
ADDITIONAL BONUS: YEP, IT'S MONDAY
Unlike sunny, expensive Oahu, it got darned cold in north Texas last night...and we've discovered that the pipes have frozen in one of the bathrooms. We've now got a heat lamp on the exterior wall, and a battery of space heaters and hair dryers blowing on the interior pipes (the area with the actual blockage can't be reached directly).

There is also a real sense of suspense, wondering if - at any moment - our bathroom faucet will simply return to normal operations...or we'll discover that a ruptured pipe is filling the walls of our home with water just in time for a randomly selected plumber to earn enough money for all of his Christmas shopping. And a Hawaiian vacation.

SO STILTON, HOW'S YOUR OBAMACARE DOING?
Thank you for asking. Healthcare.gov finally conceded my imaginary earning status for 2017 so that I could select another crappy, overpriced HMO plan - which I did.

And I assume all of that went smoothly, because last week I received six - count 'em - six new ID cards from Blue Cross. Three for me, and three for Mrs. Jarlsberg who isn't on the policy anymore.  Then on Saturday, I received two more ID's, both of which are in my name but showing different policy numbers.  So there's at least some chance that I now have 8 insurance policies.

None of which stopped Healthcare.gov from sending me daily reminders that I was not insured and needed to hurry to beat the cutoff deadline. Which they've now extended since the website (for the umpteenth time) failed to keep up with the traffic.

They've also let me know that I can pay my multiple insurance policies by giving them my banking information and letting their crack computers siphon money whenever they feel like it.  I'd sooner hand over my information to a Nigerian prince who wants to share his fortune.

(Noon Update: I swear on all that's Holy that I just got two more ID cards in today's mail.)

TRIPLE BONUS: MULLIGAN'S ISLAND
Not, of course, that there's anything wrong with that.

From Ian:

A homicidal Jew-hatred is going viral, again
The culture of suspicion against Jews circulates now in a country that had not participated in the Holocaust, , which did not have ghettos, but where today for a mixture of Thirdworldism, consistent Islamic electoral interests, anti-colonial madness out of maximum time and anti-Zionism practiced by the progressive elites, the English citizens of Jewish origin today no longer feel at ease.

The previous day there was the indictment of an imam of Copenhagen who in a sermon invited the faithful to kill the Jews. The day before there was the reconstruction of the history of the Imam of the Great Mosque in Toulouse, also guilty of having invited the faithful to get rid of the Jews.

Previously, there was a pan-European flotilla of solidarity to Hamas and Gaza which stopped in many Italian ports. Also a law in the Senate of Ireland which sanctions with prison those who import post-1967 Israeli goods.

And then the launch of hundreds of missiles on the Israeli houses in the south. And then the threats of elimination of the Jewish people coming from the spiritual father of Iran, Ali Khamenei.

And we do not stop here, since the last few weeks have seen nothing short of attacks on Jews in the cities of Germany and France.
Watchdog Group Sues US Government to Obtain Records of BDS Groups Under Obama Administration
A conservative watchdog group has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the State Department, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense over Obama-era records pertaining to anti-Israel BDS groups.

Judicial Watch filed the FOIA lawsuit in order to obtain records from 2015 of groups affiliated with BDS movement, which lobbied “the Obama administration to adopt policies to harm companies doing business with Israel,” the group said in a statement.

The lawsuit occurred “after all three agencies failed to respond to nearly identical April 23, 2018, FOIA requests,” the organization explained.

“Americans deserve to know if the Obama-era agenda of supporting anti-Israel radicals in subverting US law is ongoing,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These entrenched bureaucrats of the Deep State clearly require lawsuits to compel observance of FOIA law.”

The lawsuit states, despite Obama signing the 2015 Trade Enforcement Act, “the Customs and Border Protection Bureau restated the West Bank Country of Origin Marking Requirement rules requiring labeling of goods as being from the ‘West Bank,’ despite the fact that it is not a sovereign country,” reported Judicial Watch.

The Endowment for Middle East Truth (EMET) applauded the move by Judicial Watch.
Israeli Air Force Gets First-Ever Female Squadron Commander
The Israeli Air Force has appointed the first female squadron commander in its 70-year history.

According to Israel’s Channel Two, the commander, who for security reasons is referred to only as “G.,” will be promoted to lieutenant colonel and put charge of the 122nd Squadron, known as “Nachshon.” The squadron is composed of planes specifically geared toward intelligence gathering.

The 34-year-old G. has been active in the Air Force since 2003, and has served in several command positions, including deputy commander of the “Nachshon” Squadron itself.

G. — currently a major — said that she was “happy with the appointment,” which she called “a great privilege alongside a great responsibility.”

“The real work is ahead of me,” she added. “I’m proud to serve in the Air Force.”



Son of Imam Linked to WTC Bombing Kept Children in 'Filthy' Compound, Allegedly Trained Them to Shoot Up Schools
Horrifying details emerged on Wednesday in the case of Siraj Ibn Wahhaj, the son of an imam linked to the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, who was arrested in New Mexico on charges of keeping 11 starving children in a filthy compound. According to court documents filed by prosecutors, Wahhaj was training the children to carry out school shootings.

Prosecutors asked the judge to hold Wahhaj without bond for felony child abuse. He is also the subject of an extradition warrant from Georgia on charges of kidnapping his own son from the state in December. His son was not among the starving children rescued from the compound. There are fears the remains of an as-yet unidentified child found at the compound could be Wahhaj’s son.

Prosecutors said on Wednesday that Wahhaj and four accomplices possessed an AR-15 rifle and four pistols with ample ammunition and were training the children to commit school shootings.

Wahhaj’s father, who was born under the name Jeffrey Kearse but now also uses the name “Siraj Wahhaj,” is an imam in New York who was an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. He served as a character witness in the trial of mastermind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman, also known as the “Blind Sheikh.”

The New York Post reported on Monday that the elder Wahhaj is currently the head of the Majid at-Taqwa mosque in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The other defendants in the compound case are the younger Siraj Wahhaj’s wife, his two sisters, and his brother-in-law.








Palestinians celebrate relative's victory in U.S. Congressional race
Sharing smiles and hugs, the extended family of Rashida Tlaib, who is set to become the first Muslim woman to join the US Congress, celebrated her election victory in the courtyard of their West Bank house on Wednesday.

The oldest of 14 children born to a family of Palestinian immigrants, Tlaib is a Detroit native. Her father worked at a Ford Motor Company plant in the city, home of the US car industry, and she became the first Muslim woman elected to the state legislature.

On Tuesday, she won her district's Democratic nomination for Michigan's 13th Congressional district, encompassing parts of Detroit and surrounding suburbs and home to one of the largest Muslim and Arab-American populations in the United States.

Since no one ran in the Republican primary, Tlaib is poised to win the seat.
Nick Cohen: The old left and the new anti-Semitism
Only the handful of Jews who have stuck with the far left believe that now. There are abundent examples of Labour members endorsing racism. The supernatural Jew of Nazi Europe has been reinvented by the left. The Jew is now ‘the Zionist’: the sinister force behind 9/11, the Iraq War, the banking crisis and attacks on the beloved leader.

This sounds like fascism. The convergence between the extremes should not hide the fact that the disgrace of the British Labour party flows from distinctly left-wing sources that threaten the German and wider European left.

The first is failure to come to terms with the crimes of communism. Corbyn was a regular writer for Britain’s communist newspaper, the Morning Star. His chief adviser, the upper-class socialist Seumas Milne, defended the old GDR. The racism on the British left, in its content and tone, dates back to Stalin’s almost forgotten ‘anti-Zionist campaigns,’ at the time of the Slansky trial and ‘doctors’ plot’. I have no doubt that if Corbyn and his allies were Germans, they would be in Die Linke.

There is a second factor. After the fall of communism, the dominant section of the British far left preferred to make common cause with radical Islam or the secular Middle Eastern dictatorships of Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi and Bashar al-Assad than to make their peace with liberal democracy. Anti-Semitic conspiracy theories did them no harm for decades. In Britain, as in Germany, Jews are a tiny minority. The far larger Muslim minority is a key part of Labour’s base now. Although it is a libel to say that all British Muslims are anti-Semitic, it is a statement of fact that the Islamist groups who back Corbyn are reactionary on all questions including Judaism. In any case, because Britain never experienced communism or fascism there is little understanding here about what anti-Semitism is and how dictatorial movements from the Tsarists to Islamic State have used it to attack liberal values.

Let me end with a warning. Labour under Corbyn has avoided the collapse in support that has afflicted social democratic parties across Europe. Corbyn’s acolytes are now telling German social democrats to follow his example. Let the shameful state of the once proudly anti-fascist Labour party stand as a warning to them. They may win more votes. But they will never produce a centre-left politics worth having.
Britain’s Labor Party Is Now the Party of Anti-Semitism
Since the hard-left parliamentarian Jeremy Corbyn became its leader in 2015, the UK’s Labor party has seen near-continuous anti-Semitic outbursts by its members and revelations of Corbyn’s own association with vicious Israel-haters, coupled with several ostensible attempts to set things right which proved to be shams. Most recently, the party has disciplined two MPs for complaining about anti-Semitism. Tamara Berens concludes that this is far more than a passing problem:

Many focus on the question of whether Jeremy Corbyn is an anti-Semite himself. He may or may not be. However, his deliberate actions to reject the Jewish community’s concerns, silence his moderate Labor detractors, and pedal anti-Zionism as central to his political image show that he is more than happy to utilize anti-Semitism for political purposes.

Anti-Zionism—and by extension, giving credence to anti-Semites—is fundamental to the worldview Corbyn has cultivated on his journey to political stardom. For most of his political career, Corbyn was a fringe socialist politician and supporter of the USSR, Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, the Iranian ayatollahs, and the Venezuela of Nicolas Maduro [and Hugo Chavez]. After becoming Labor leader, Jeremy Corbyn toned down some of this support for radical anti-Western groups. Nonetheless, he has consistently maintained his support for anti-Zionist causes. What’s undoubtable is that throughout his career, his ultimate goal has remained the same: rejecting Western values and embracing the alliance between radical socialists and Islamists in a strategic bid to normalize and implement socialism in the UK.

Politically, Corbyn’s strategy is working: according to a recent YouGov poll, 61 percent of the party believes Corbyn is handling accusations of anti-Semitism well. And 80 percent of the party deems him a good leader overall. The events of the past few weeks indicate that the Labor leadership has been able to build on their apparent success to . . . distance themselves from the overwhelmingly Zionist British-Jewish community. This perhaps became most apparent last Friday, when Jeremy Corbyn published another article in the Guardian disregarding his part in normalizing anti-Semitism in the party. The piece came out at 5:00pm, when the majority of Jews in the country were busy preparing for the Sabbath.


Jeremy Corbyn and the 9/11 Conspiracy Theories of a “Very Honoured Citizen”
In one of his bids to escape the antisemitism crisis engulfing the Labour party, last Friday Jeremy Corbyn offered this line in The Guardian:

Labour staff have seen examples of Holocaust denial, crude stereotypes of Jewish bankers, conspiracy theories blaming 9/11 on Israel, and even one individual who appeared to believe that Hitler had been misunderstood.

Mr Corbyn should know all about 9/11 conspiracy bunkum. He has been an enthusiastic champion of Raed Salah, one of the notable peddlers.

Raed Salah is the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel. It is close to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Salah visited the UK in 2011, planning to speak alongside MPs as part of his tour, including Mr Corbyn.
UK Labour MP under fire for accusing Israel of ‘genocide’ in Gaza in 2012
A senior lawmaker in the British Labour party has come under fire after a 2012 video surfaced that saw him claiming Israel was attempting to commit “genocide” against the Palestinians.

The opposition party, which has been mired in an ongoing anti-Semitism scandal, defended John McDonnell after the clip was published by the Daily Telegraph.

McDonnell is the UK’s shadow chancellor of the exchequer, having been appointed to the post in 2015 by Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has been repeatedly been accused of being soft on anti-Semitism among his party members.

In the video, taken in November 2012 during a round of violence between Israel and terror groups in the Gaza Strip known as Operation Pillar of Defense, McDonnell said: “Nobody can speak without expressing some form of solidarity with the people of Gaza … as the children are murdered and the bombs are flying from Israel.”

“I think it’s absolutely critical now that we use every platform we can to expose what’s going on, which is effectively an attempt at genocide against the Palestinians,” he charged at a far-left rally organized by the Unite the Resistance organization.
Extremist-Linked Assad Fan Lord Sheikh and His Zionist-Bashing Group
Sheikh is on the record publicly praising the controversial group the Al Muntada Trust. The group faced scrutiny after fears were raised that its funds had ended up with Boko Haram extremists. It has been linked to a series of anti-Semitic, homophobic and extremist preachers. In the video above, Lord Sheikh calls the group “marvellous”…

Then there is Lord Sheikh’s praise for the East London Mosque. Sheikh said:

“I would certainly commend the Mosque and Centre: not only do you provide a place of worship, but you provide a holistic service and more importantly the empowerment for women.”

Once again, the East London Mosque has well-known and established links to a series of misogynistic and homophobic speakers.

It gets worse. Lord Sheikh has links to the hugely controversial Interal charity, which was investigated by the Charity Commission over its links to Hamas.
Birthright co-founder: Don't criticize Israel on our nickel
Birthright Israel co-founder and billionaire philanthropist Charles Bronfman said on Wednesday that young Jews are free to criticize Israel, but not while enjoying a free trip, JTA reported.

“If people want to call Israel names and say bad things about the country, they certainly have the right to free speech. But they don’t have the right to do it on our nickel,” he was quoted as having told Haaretz in an interview.

His comments came after at least two groups of American Jews visiting Israel on the 10-day trip left the tour to join leftists groups on visits to Palestinian Arabs. The walk-offs reportedly were encouraged by the leftist American-Jewish group IfNotNow.

The young Jews who walked off the trip and some others who remain on them are critical of what they say is Birthright’s failure to deal with Israel’s alleged “occupation” of Judea and Samaria. Some have complained that maps handed out to participants do not draw a proper distinction between Israel and Judea and Samaria.

Bronfman said in his interview with Haaretz that participants on Birthright can extend their trip and join any kind of group they want or travel on their own to areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority.

“If they want to go to the West Bank or Gaza, they are certainly free to go,” he was quoted as having told Haaretz.

“What is not fair is making a big tzimmes while the trip is on. Frankly, I just don’t think that is fair to their fellow participants,” added Bronfman.
Another Jump the Shark Moment from JVP
The latest email from Jewish Voice for Peace's Deputy Directory Stefanie Fox may be a jump the shark moment for the anti-Israel group. The subject line reads "Why is the ADL training ICE in Israel?" Maybe Stefanie is secretly hoping you don't bother to read the rest of her offering. (Spoiler alert: they aren't)

Stephanie claims ICE has been learning techniques and tools from the Israeli military. She doesn't care if Peter Edge was in Israel studying cyber-security or attempting to learn from Israel's remarkable sucess at curtailing human trafficking. If it involves Israel, it must be made to be nefarious. Stefanie Fox spews typical JVP vitriole: "The real-world results of these trips have been Israeli & US officials sharing “worst practices” -- deportation and detention, shoot-to-kill policies, massive spying and surveillance -- that have become the go-to policies of agencies like ICE."

Why the hyperbole? Because 3 years ago, during the Obama administration the Deputy Associate Director of Homeland Security Investigations, one man, Peter Edge joined a delegation to Israel sponsored by the ADL.
American Association of University Professors: Don’t boycott the anti-Israel academic boycotters
But if you uphold the right to boycott, you necessarily need to uphold the right to counter-boycott.

The problem with this is that AAUP upholds the right to boycott, but only on one side. Substantively it opposes both the boycott and counter-boycott, but procedurally it upholds only the right of the boycotters.

AAUP also sent a letter to Israel regarding Israel’s denial of entry to Columbia Law Professor Katherine Franke, an academic boycott supporter.

Additionally, AAUP’s Committee A on Academic Freedom and Tenure sent a letter to the Israeli government in regard to the interrogation, subsequent expulsion, and apparent banning from Israel of Columbia Law School Professor Katherine Franke over her supporter of the “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” (BDS) movement in April. The letter urges the government of Israel to “reconsider your immigration officer’s decision and to revoke any further ban on Professor Franke’s entry for purposes of collaborative academic and scholarly work in Israel.”

Again, AAUP upholds Professor Franke’s right to boycott Israel and Israelis, but does not uphold the reverse. It does not matter that it is the Israeli government boycotting Professor Franke, since the BDS movement regularly seeks to impose government boycotts of Israel. So governmental power is used by both sides.

By turning academia into war by other means, the anti-Israel academic boycotters invited relatiatory boycotts. By affirming the rights of the boycotters to boycott Israel, but rejecting the right of Israel and supporters of Israel to counter-boycott, AAUP is not consistent or principled.
Legal action taken against first BDS motion by Latin American municipality
An organization of Chilean-Israelis has filed a legal action against the municipal council of the Chilean city of Valdivia and its mayor, which recently approved the first municipal BDS motion in Latin America. BDS refers to the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement targeting Israel.

The Chilean Community of Israel (CCHIL) organization sent a letter on July 30 to the Chilean state comptroller arguing that the motion contravenes Chilean law, that a municipal council has no jurisdiction to take such actions and that the mayor has overstepped his legal authority by advancing and signing the motion.

In Spain, dozens of municipal authorities have adopted BDS motions against Israel prompted by the pro-Palestinian advocacy of the left-wing populist Podemos Party.

Anti-BDS activists are now concerned that this phenomenon could spread to Latin America, and the legal motion to the Chilean state comptroller is an effort to try and stop it in its tracks.

The ACOM organization in Spain has successfully sued 33 local municipal authorities out of at least 100 that approved BDS motions. It is hoped that the widespread adoption of such measures can be avoided in Chile and the broader region.

Indeed, the Valdivia municipal decree itself, passed in June, references the BDS motions in Spanish cities, saying that its own measure was following in those footsteps.
Anti-Semitism Soars on U.S. College Campuses
Anti-Semitic incidents on U.S. college campuses have continued to grow in 2018, with at least 384 recorded incidents in the first half of this year, according to a new report showing the number of genocidal expressions towards Jewish hit new highs on campuses across the United States.

A new report by released Wednesday by pro-Israel organization the AMCHA Initiative, a group that tracks anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity on college campuses, shows that much of the anti-Semitism on U.S. campuses is the result of activity by anti-Israel activists who promote imagery such as swastikas and tropes calling for the destruction of the Jewish people, according to the report.

Genocidal expression, such as images and language promoting the killing of Jews and destruction of Israel, "rose dramatically" over the past years, with at least 75 percent of such incidents "involving classic anti-Semitism" and "genocidal expression," according to the report. The number of such incidents appear to have dropped slightly from 2017 to the first part of 2018, the report notes.

Most notably, according to the report, "Israel-related incidents were significantly more likely to contribute to a hostile campus," the report found.

The AMCHA report puts figures to a range of anecdotal and reported conflicts on college campuses across the United States, where anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activity continues to flourish. Pro-Palestinian campus activists continue to aggressively silence those in the Jewish community and foster an unsafe environment for many Jewish students.
Christian Science Monitor Highlights Benefits of Jewish Sovereignty
One underlying message that modern mass media offers about Israel is that Jewish power and sovereignty in the land of Israel is a threat or obstacle to the welfare of people living in the Middle East. This dishonest narrative, which fits the agenda of authoritarian regimes and de-stabilizing political movements that use anti-Zionism as a unifying political agenda, infects much, if not most of the media coverage of the Jewish state. This “blame-Israel” narrative is so ubiquitous that it comes as a shock when a news outlet gets it right and portrays Israel as a force for good in the Middle East. But it does happen.

It happened in an article published on July 11, 2018 in the online edition of The Christian Science Monitor and reprised in the July 30, 2018 issue of The Christian Science Monitor Weekly.

The article, titled “Syrian war comes to Israel’s doorstep, brings swirl of changing attitudes,” was written by Dina Kraft. In the article, Kraft recounts how 10,000 people fleeing from Syrian Civil War have come to rely on Israel for their welfare and safety. They have gathered near Syria’s border with Israel because of the protection the Jewish state affords them under “Operation Good Neighbor.” The program provides food, fuel, medical supplies and in some instances medical treatment to people living in villages near Israel. As a result of the program, “[s]ome 5,000 Syrians have been treated in Israeli hospitals,” Kraft reported.

These acts of kindness have changed how many Syrians view the Jewish state, the article indicates.
BBC double standards in reporting social media incitement evident again
In April of this year the BBC News website’s domestic pages reported the sentencing of a Salford man previously found guilty of “encouragement of terrorism”.

“Muslim convert Adam Wyatt, 48, admitted disseminating a terrorist publication that said “Britain must atone for its sins in Palestine” and posting on social media that jihad was an obligation for all Muslims.”

The following month the website reported the sentencing of a man from Sunderland who had previously pleaded guilty to similar offences.

“A shopkeeper who tweeted support for Islamic State (IS) and called for “death to Shias” has been jailed for four-and-a-half years.

Mohammed Zahir Khan, of Nora Street, Sunderland, had admitted encouraging terrorism, dissemination of a terror publication and stirring up religious hatred.”


Unsurprisingly, the BBC did not send a reporter to interview either of those men before they were sentenced. Neither did it promote the notion that they were put on trial because of their identity to millions of audience members or portray either of their cases as being about “free speech”.

However, when an Israeli-Arab woman was sentenced to five months in prison after having been convicted of incitement to violence in her poems and social media posts, the BBC News website amplified her claims of political persecution in a July 31st report titled “Dareen Tatour: Israeli Arab poet sentenced for incitement“.
Shocking documentary shows how Sweden’s ruling leftist party ‘helped’ Nazi Germany
A shocking documentary about Sweden’s ruling Social Democratic Party, shows how the leftist party ‘inspired and helped’ Nazi Germany.

The documentary, produced by the party’s right-wing opponent, the Sweden Democrats, was removed by YouTube yesterday in an act of censorship.

But after a backlash it is now visible again on the social media channel of broadcaster Samtiden Dokumentär.

Ironically the documentary starts with the leader of the leftist Social Democratic Party, Swedish prime minister Stefan Löfven, telling how the right-wing Social Democrats historically have Nazi roots.

But now the Sweden Democrats are hitting back and have produced this documentary to tell the truth about their leftist opponents.

And it is revealing as it shows that the Swedish Social Democrats inspired Nazi Germany on the issue of Eugenics or “ethnic cleansing”.
Jewish couple in Belgium targeted with death threats
A Jewish woman living in Belgium said her family has been targeted with anti-Semitic abuse since one of their neighbors discovered they were Jews.

The woman, identified only as Nicole, 43, in an article published last month by the La Meuse regional daily about her ordeal, had been living for over two years in Marchienne-au-Pont, a suburb of Charleroi 30 miles south of Brussels, without incident, according to the report.

But this summer, the report said, she and her family have been targeted in a campaign of harassment that has featured written death threats stuffed into their mailbox and the scrawling of anti-Semitic graffiti on their front door.

“We are too afraid to leave our home since this started,” Nicole, a Chile native, was quoted as telling the newspaper. “Several people discovered we’re Jewish and ever since we’ve been getting death threats.” One letter addressed to Nicole called her a “dirty whore” and other insults.

The couple have filed several complaints with police but no suspects have been brought in.
Mayoral candidate: Questioning Holocaust isn't anti-Semitism
A self-proclaimed Holocaust revisionist is planning a run for mayor of Hilton Head, South Carolina, but says his beliefs will not impact his local anti-development platform.

Michael Santomauro, 59, filed papers to enter the race on Monday, according to the Island Packet.

Santomauro, who founded a roommate-matching service, made headlines in New York City in 2003 when subscribers to his service received a stream of emails spreading his beliefs denying historical accounts of the Holocaust.

In 2004, protesters surrounded his home and chanted “evict the Nazi.” He told the New York Post then that the Nazi label is “totally inaccurate.” He told the Island Packet this week that the protesters were “part of a domestic terrorism group.”

In 2011, Santomauro urged his child’s school on Manhattan’s Upper East Side to acquire the book “Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides.” The book collects essays denying key aspects of Holocaust history, including the death toll, the accounts of survivors, the physical evidence found at death camps and the feasibility of the methods the Nazis used to carry out mass murder. Santomauro runs American operations for a publisher of e-books dedicated to Holocaust denial.
Germany lifts ban on Nazi symbols in video games
Computer and video games can include swastikas and other Nazi symbols, a German industry body said Thursday, after a heated debate over the “Wolfenstein” franchise in which gamers battle Third Reich forces.

The game was previously deemed to have fallen foul of the German criminal code, which bars any depiction of so-called “anti-constitutional” symbols, including Nazi swastikas.

Accordingly in “Wolfenstein II,” images of Adolf Hitler were doctored to remove his mustache and the swastika in the Nazi flag was replaced with a triangular symbol.

This sparked an uproar in the gaming community, prompting calls for games to be treated like films.

Because movies are deemed works of art, they are exempt from the ban, similar to material used in research, historical or scientific purposes.

Films set in the World War II-era, for instance, are allowed to be screened in Germany with Nazi symbols.
Curator of Elie Wiesel Museum Welcomes Global Outpouring of Support, as Romanian Police Arrest Vandalism Suspect
In the wake of this past weekend’s vandalism incident at the childhood home of the late Holocaust survivor and Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel in Romania, there has been an outpouring of solidarity from across the globe, the curator of the museum at the site told The Algemeiner on Wednesday.

Alina Marincean said the incident — in which antisemitic graffiti was scrawled on the home — came as a surprise to both museum staff members and local residents in the city of Sighetu Marmatiei, located in northwestern Romania near the border with Ukraine.

“Nothing of this sort ever happened to us and we are organizing yearly public events with a great impact on the local and regional community,” she noted.

Following the discovery of the graffiti on Saturday, Marincean recalled, “I spent the whole next day responding to emails and answering calls from friends, visitors, people I know from around the world from Finland to South America, Israel and the US, people who expressed their concern and also support.”

“There were also visits at the museum from politicians and intellectuals from Romania who wanted to point out the importance of this place that keeps Elie Wiesel’s work and memory alive, as well as the memory of all those 38,000 Jews who never returned to their homes after May 1944,” she added.
Patented Israeli Laser Technology Could be Used to Fight Forest Fires Across the World
Texas, Oregon, Florida, New Jersey, as well as Canada, Greece, India, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK are among other areas battling massive forest fires, a phenomenon experts expect will only increase due to climate change.

It was the massive forest fires in Israel over the past several years that gave electro-optics physicist Daniel Leigh the idea of using algorithm-controlled laser beams from helicopters or trucks to zap leaves, thin branches and pine needles off treetops in the path of fire. The flames are forced downward, where they can be more easily controlled by conventional methods.

Leigh explains that leafy treetops provide a highly combustible smorgasbord for hungry forest fires. Fanned by extreme wind and weather conditions, a forest fire that rises to the treetops spreads out of control in the blink of an eye.

When Leigh shared his idea with ecologist Zvika Avni, former chief of the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) Forestry Department, Avni agreed to be the ecology and the wildfire fighting specialist for Leigh’s startup, Fighting Treetop Fire (FTF).
Swedish Christian Zionists to sail to Israel
Following Swedish pro-Hamas operatives’ failed attempt to reach Gaza by sea, a Christian supporter of Israel from Sweden announced he would take dozens of pro-Zionists to Israel on his yacht.

Stefan Abrahamsson today announced on Facebook that his yacht, Elida, will set sail from Sweden on Aug. 25 to Israel to show solidarity with the Jewish State and Middle East Christians.

“We want to break the silence of the severe persecution and cleansing of the Christian population that is taking place in this region,” he wrote. “As the only democracy in the Middle East amid ​​dictatorships, Israel welcomes us on this show of solidarity with human rights, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, and fundamental democratic values. In turn, we are taking a stand for the values ​​that Israel stands for.”

Abrahamsson wrote that on Aug. 24 he will organize a sendoff party at the Gothenburg marina from which his yacht, carrying about 40 activists, will set sail for Herzliya, Israel. The Elida is expected to reach Israel in October and dock there for several weeks. The sendoff will feature a discussion on “precisely these important issues,” he wrote. Lars Adaktusson, a lawmaker from Sweden in the European Parliament, is scheduled to speak at the event.
Israeli runner Lonah Chemtai Salpeter wins gold at European Championships
Israel’s Lonah Chemtai Salpeter won the women’s 10,000-meter run at the 2018 European Athletics Championships in Berlin Wednesday, completing the race in 31 minutes, 43.29 seconds.

Israeli-Kenyan Salpeter came 9 full seconds ahead of Susan Krumins of the Netherlands, winning the gold medal. Sweden’s Meraf Bahta came third.

The 29-year-old became the first Israeli to be crowned European champion.

“I still don’t believe it,” she said afterwards. “I’m really happy. I dreamed of this, but I didn’t believe it happened.”

Salpeter will receive a grant of NIS 40,000 (some $11,000) from Israeli sports authorities for her win.

Born in Kenya, she first came to Israel in 2008, working as a caretaker at Kenya’s embassy in Tel Aviv. While running at a Herzliya park, she was noticed by running coach Moti Mizrahi, who suggested she train professionally.
2.4 million tourists came to Israel so far in 2018, ministry says
Israel’s Ministry of Tourism has announced that 2.4 million tourists have visited Israel since the beginning of 2018, a 17% increase in tourists for the same period in 2017.

Citing findings from Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics, the ministry said in a statement that the number of tourists is 46 percent more than in 2016, almost double the number of tourists that entered during the same period that year.

According to the ministry, 293,400 tourists entered Israel during July 2018 alone, which is around eight percent more tourists than in July 2017.

Over 250,000 tourists came by air, the release said, an 8.8% increase compared to July 2017. 26,200 of them came through land crossings into Israel, a 3.1% increase compared to that month the year before. (Israel only has land border crossings with Egypt and Jordan.)

“Month after month, we are witnessing new achievements and record highs in incoming tourism,” Minister of Tourism Yariv Levin (Likud) said in a statement. “I am pleased that, in the last month, we have also seen an impressive rise in incoming tourism... the tourism industry continues to be a significant factor in making exceptional impact and contributions to the Israeli economy and workforce.”

Levin also praised the ministry’s marketing initiatives and “innovative activities… Together with the incentives for airlines and investments in infrastructure,” for contributing to the rise in tourism.
2,200-Year-Old Earring Found in Jerusalem Excavation Sheds Light on Hellenistic Period in Judea
A 2,200-year-old golden earring was discovered at the City of David’s archaeological excavation just outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, shedding light on life in the city after it was conquered by the Greeks.

The rare artifact depicts a finely-crafted head of a horned animal and delicate filigree work, and is believed to date back to the second or third century BCE, a period during which the Temple was the center of Jewish life, but the region was controlled by the Greeks and a significant percentage of the Jewish populace was influenced by Greek culture and beliefs.

During the time period the earring is believed to be connected to, Judea was a semi-autonomous Hellenistic vassal first under the rule of Ptolemaic Egypt from 301 to 198 BCE, and then under the Seleucid Empire, after Antiochus III conquered Jerusalem. Shortly afterwards, Jews who were not Hellenized ultimately took part in the Maccabean Revolt of 167 BCE, which is commemorated in the Hanukkah story.

According to Professor Yuval Gadot of Tel Aviv University, co-director of the Givati Parking Lot excavation, the find is the first earring discovered in Jerusalem from the Hellenistic period, found in an early-Hellenistic period building deep inside the dig.

          Comment on The RCCX Hypothesis: Could It Help Explain Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), Fibromyalgia and other Diseases? by Nancy B.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I find it very interesting that Dr. Meglathery's RCCX theory has popped up here. Several year ago she floated her original ideas on Inspire for the Ehlers-Danlos community where it received mixed reviews. She herself is not a geneticist although later she teamed up with one which seemed to give her explanations more credibility. There is a sub-type of EDS called Tenascin-X whose variant sits just next to the genes which control part of the HPA axis. And this is where there can be a problem with CAH--or congenital adrenal hyperplasia as well. CAH presents very similar to PCOS. For a while EDS researchers were chasing people who presented with both, thinking that they would be quite common. Alas, they found a few, but not as many as hoped for--but a new category emerged "non-classical CAH." Unfortunately, testing for the mutation for Tenascin-X is specialized and so they remain a small category in the EDS realm. When Dr. Meglathery is talking about high progesterone caused by 21-hydroxylase, she is actually referring to some version of CAH. Before coming across her theory, I suspected that I might have Tenascin-X EDS and could confirm this by testing for CAH, whether sub-clinical or full blown--because of their genetic proximity and influence. Testing for this is very involved. Alas, even though I have the PCOS like symptoms, I have no evidence of 21-hydroxylase problems. So what to make of (at least part) of her theory? I certainly have problems with fatigue as does about 80% of people with EDS, but I seem to have failed the RXXC explanation...I do have some of her criteria, and not some of her criteria... I do hope she is on to something... So much research is needed...
          3 Reasons HCI Adoption Is on the Rise for Small and Medium Businesses      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
3 Reasons HCI Adoption Is on the Rise for Small and Medium Businesses juliet.vanwage… Thu, 08/09/2018 - 10:16

For larger businesses with dedicated IT teams, the wonders of hyperconverged infrastructure are well known. But now, small and medium businesses are starting to embrace the ways HCI can work to offer SMBs an operational edge. In fact, a new study by Techaisle Research shows that HCI adoption is poised to double over the next year and a half as the benefits become apparent, particularly as it pertains to digital transformation.

A blog post from Techaisle Research about the study notes that HCI adoption allows SMBs to grow “in lockstep with new business or customer demands,” and is viewed as an important element of business growth.

“The SMBs that are fully committed to digital transformation are on the fastest path to adoption, as HCI is an important element of a future-ready, resource-sensitive IT approach,” the blog post notes.

HCI platforms, much like converged infrastructure platforms, combine computing, storage, networking and virtualization capabilities into a single appliance. With HCI, however, all of the components are pre-integrated and controlled by one software-management layer. Moreover, as all components are provided by a single vendor, it offers IT managers a level of control and visibility they can’t normally achieve with piecemeal infrastructure.

As SMBs begin gravitating toward solutions from vendors such as Cisco Systems, Dell EMC, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Nutanix and VMware, among others, these businesses are coming to realize several important benefits that can give them the operational edge and simplicity they crave.

1. HCI Cuts Costs and Resource Needs

While adopting HCI won’t immediately translate to cost savings, implementing it effectively in line with business needs can save businesses bundles in the long run.

At Midwest Acoust-A-Fiber, for example, adopting a Scale Computing HCI solution saved the company about 50 percent over the cost of a traditional architecture. Moreover, it saved the company from needing to hire additional personnel.

“People just keep getting more expensive, and hardware gets cheaper. So, now if we need more performance we can just throw more hardware at the problem,” Systems Administration Manager Daniel Penrod told BizTech in a previous interview.

2. Hyperconvergence Eases IT Management

For companies with limited staff and resources, HCI can deliver a simpler way to manage all IT assets.

“HCI’s integrated, software-defined architecture provides SMB IT staff with an ability to deliver sophisticated capabilities without needing to maintain an elaborate web of resource connections,” the Techaisle blog post notes.

In a prime example, PreCheck, a healthcare background-check company tapped HCI to ease migration and ongoing management, Robert Wilcox, PreCheck's infrastructure manager, told BizTech.

"It's really simplified the environment and reduced the overhead of the hardware. We've gone from a three-tiered model to one tier," he said. "It's a complete ecosystem, and if I need to scale up, I can just buy another node and slide it in. It gets picked up by the system, and everything is done automatically."

3. HCI Improves and Simplifies Small Business Scalability

Moreover, since HCI is an integrated, modular solution, IT can scale capacity as needed without the need to invest in new resources or buy capacity in advance, Techaisle notes.

Dave Wiley, IT manager at Mayfran International, a Cleveland-based manufacturer of machine tool products, material-handling equipment and filtration systems, noticed an improvement in scalability immediately within the first year of investing in a Cisco HyperFlex HX hyperconverged system.

“We needed more disk capacity, so we expanded from three servers to four. Scalability proved to be smooth with HCI,” Wiley told BizTech in a previous interview.

And the IT manager wasn’t the only one that noticed the change.

End users could tell immediately that we installed faster servers,” he said.

Yesterday I woke up and, because it was still dark outside, noticed a flashing light. I looked over and saw Carlos’ alarm clock flashing 12:00 because clearly the power had gone out sometime during the night. I nudged him.
“Charlie [that’s a name his Aunt Gloria calls him, and so do I from time to time] Charlie? The power went out.”
He mutters, Uh oh, and I doze off again. But I hear him get up, and hear the shower running and about a half-hour later, I wake up. I stumbled to the kitchen and he says:
“The power went off last night.”
I say:
“I know, I woke you up and told you.”
“No. Max woke me up by crawling on top of me.”
“Maybe Max began crawling on top of you because I woke you up to tell you the power had gone out and you moved and woke him up.”
“I think you were dreaming.”
Yes, I dreamed the power went out and dreamed that I woke up and told Carlos about it, and then, miraculously, my dream came true.

I’m that good.

I’m hoping that my dream where Carlos listens when I speak will come true, too.

Oy.
I follow a page on Facebook about ‘What’s Going On …’ in our local area. People post questions about looking for a contractor, or someone to do some work; they advertise yard sales; they recommend businesses; and then there are others.

Some posts, I hate to say, are so illiterate, I literally have to read them out loud in what I call my toothless cousin-f**ker voice just see make sense of it; that gives me a laugh. But this week a woman posted about buying truck parts at an Auto Zone and the nice young black man that helped her carry them to her truck. I didn’t see the point in mentioning he was black as it had nothing to do with the story until she added:
“It was nice, him showing me the respect I deserve.”
Seriously; but then another woman posted:
“I know him, he helped me at the Piggly Wiggly.”
Now, the first women never mentioned the young man by name, which caused me to think that, if you took these people at their word, there is one, just one, nice young black man in Smallville who runs around helping white women—and you know they’re white women because of their FB profile photo—and giving them respect.

Oy. But then …
Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw, a 32-year-old Bluffton, South Carolina was caught speeding through a stop sign at over 60 miles per hour.

When stopped by police, Cutshaw was slurring her words and a breathalyzer showed her blood-alcohol level at .18 percent –well above the .06 legal limit. But Cutshaw said she shouldn’t be arrested because she is a "very clean, thoroughbred, white girl” and a cheerleader and a sorority girl who graduated from a "high accredited university" and because her partner's "a cop."

When officers asked what being a "white, clean girl" had to do with anything Cushaw replied:
"You're a cop, you should know what that means."
Cutshaw was arrested and jailed on charges including drunken driving, speeding, disregarding a stop sign, possession of drug paraphernalia, and marijuana possession and being a self-entitled white privileged girl.

Sorry, hon, add criminal to your list of accomplishments.

Boy band singer, and openly gay, Lance Bass said he’s “heartbroken” after placing a bid to buy Brady Bunch house, and thinking he’d been the highest bidder, only to find that he wasn’t.
“Super excited to announce they accepted my offer on the #BradyBunch house last night!!! This is going to be a fun project!”
Then came this:
“Marcia Marcia Marcia!  Im feeling heartbroken today. As many of you may have heard, we placed the winning bid on the iconic Brady Bunch house—at least that’s what we were told. The agent representing the estate informed us we made the winning bid (which was WAY over the asking price) after the final deadline for all offers had passed—even writing up the “winning bid” for my team after informing me of the good news. Isn’t a deadline a deadline? This was a dream come true for me and I spent the night celebrating amongst friends, family, and fans alike. The next day, due to “unforeseen circumstances” the same agent informed us that there’s another Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house at any cost. We were prepared to go even higher but totally discouraged by the sellers agent, they will outperform any bid with unlimited resources. How is this fair or legal?? How can I compete with a billion dollar corporate entity? I truly believe I was used to drive up the price of the home knowing very well that this corporation intended on making their offer and it’s not a good feeling. I feel used but most importantly I’m hurt and saddened by this highly questionable outcome. I just hope it is not demolished. Thanks for all the love and support. #CrushedDream #ShadyAF #DouglasElliman #ShadyBrady”
Lance believes he “was used to drive up the price of the home” as a Corporate buyer did make a bigger bid, and that buyer is HGTV, who it has purchased the home and plans to “return it to its ‘1970s glory’.”

Right. I’m seeing gray everywhere … and shiplap.

Oy! Again!
Todd Kincannon, the former head of South Carolina's Republican Party, was arrested last week after he choked, stabbed, and mutilated his mother's 10-year-old beagle at her Greenville county home. Upon his arrest, Kincannon said he killed the dog because:
"I'm the second coming of Christ and I got a command from God to do it."
Officers who responded to the call say Kincannon came out of his parents' home in his underwear and covered in blood and dog hair and announced that “every 1,000 years there needs to be a sacrifice and blood must be spilt." He held up his arms to show what appeared to be dog bites and said:
"I have a sign. I'm about to get crucified in the media."
Yes, you are. And he will be charged with animal cruelty though there is no report that he will be taken in an evaluated for some sort of mental break.

I mean, this story, and the fact that in 2015, Kincannon was charged with criminal domestic violence after threatening to kill himself, his wife, and her family; in 2015, his law license was suspended following threatening emails he sent to people in connection with that arrest.

A grand jury indicted Kincannon on domestic violence and kidnapping charges last year but those charges are still pending.

Seriously? This man should have been locked a long time ago but, you know, Republican, South Carolina, domestic violence.
Now, for some fa-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-bulous news … the fa-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-bulous Jessica Lange is coming back American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

Gosh, I love this … after Donald _____’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was vandalized—with a pick axe no less—the city of West Hollywood issued a resounding “Fuck You, Mr. President” and passed a unanimous resolution to remove the star from the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Sorry, not sorry.
We watched a couple of movies this weekend, the first being Trumbo, about the Hollywood blacklist of suspected Communists in the 40s and 50s. One of the people who helped to end the blacklist was actor Kirk Douglas who hired Dalton Trumbo to write the script for Spartacus and made sure he was given credit on screen.

The actor who played Douglas, Dean O’Gorman, top, just oozed sex appeal onscreen, especially in scenes as Spartacus in his little, er, not so little, leather jock strap.

We, or I, also watched Home Again, a tired Reese Witherspoon rom-com where she plays a forty-something woman who takes in three twenty-something young men and falls for one of them.

Sadly, she fell for the wrong one, because she didn’t fall the quirky, cute and sweet Jon Rudnitsky, bottom, who played George.

As Julie said in Pretty Woman, “Big mistake. Huge.”

Steaming hot or quirky cute ... I don't have a type.

          Comment on Financial Advice for Preppers by Zachary      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Grace, at first glance I'd agree with what you say - who cares about an old debt or two if things are truly FUBAR. Consider though the preliminary stages to a disaster. Say, about where we are at the present moment. Having extra money to buy future necessities would be nice, and that would result from not continuing to hand the bank piles of "interest" money on top of the original debt. A disaster might not proceed to the point you describe, and outstanding debts could be used as a lever to finish "cleaning out" folks. A few years ago when Obama The Great was president, the banks organized a massive heist. A neigbor family had been living in their house for nigh on 18 years, and had built up some equity. The mother and wife told me their mortgage had been sold 7 times, and each time their mortgage payments had gone up a little bit. There came a point where they could no longer meet those payments, and lost everything. Not only the house, but the family was shattered by the experience and disintegrated. I'm reading stories these days about the return of "debtor's prisons". A bank-friendly judge will toss a person into the clink for missing a small payment or fine, and things go to hell in a handbasket in a hurry. So trying to keep the "debt" lever out of the hands of the banksters seems a good idea to me. A saying I've known for years goes something like this: "If you owe the bank $1,000 that's your problem. If you owe the bank $1,000 million, that's the bank's problem." During a hyperinflation disaster Rich People will do just fine - they'll watch their debts evaporate. Poor people aren't likely to do nearly as well.

          React and Reverse: One Indicator Tells Us to Cautiously Buy Calls      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A few weeks back I examined the likely reasons that I was wrong about the current rally.

The most important of them was the increase in speculative borrowing by shadow bank financial institutions, who include broker dealers and other financial intermediaries. 

This indicator clearly correlates with, and leads, stock price movements.

I have shown this indicator to you a few times over the past month or so, to illustrate what I think is largely driving this rally-an increase in leverage, in essence, a return to hyper bullish market sentiment, typical of a top. 

Right now, the indicator is showing a continuation of bullish sentiment, which may be a signal to cautiously buy calls.

So today, I thought I'd take a deeper dive into this one indicator I underestimated, and show you exactly how it's influencing the markets...

          Why Ministry Hurts So Much and What to Do About It      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Sometimes ministry hurts.

There's grief and pain for church leaders.

It's like a violent storm that comes from every angle against us. Discouragement. Depression. Quitting. Being fired. Wanting to turn your back on church and ministry.

Why is the downside of being in ministry so huge? And why does it hit all of us?

Prayerfully read on, church leader, to see how God wants to strengthen and encourage you today. There aren't easy answers. Just some perspective and hope.

Why Ministry Hurts

Why does ministry hurt so much?

1. Imperfect people do imperfect things.

It's the obvious starting place: Ministry hurts because people do and say things that are hurtful.

They may be ornery, oblivious or power-seeking. They may not mean to be hurtful, or even realize that they hurt people. They may be sorry.

Or they may never admit their part in the hurt.

We're surprised when people in church hurt other people, but we shouldn't be. We're still a bunch of sinners.

2. The Evil One is the Destroyer.

Let's not forget who is behind the hurt.

It's not accidental. It's calculated to bring ruin and comes from the one who is out to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10).

3. We're blinded by our own perspective.

We got robbed several years ago, and in the aftermath, we were surprised by how hypersensitive we were.

In an unusual turnaround of expectations, for the next few days, we expected sympathy and sensitivity from everybody. We felt violated. And with all the details of closing stolen credit cards and bank accounts, we were hurt, frustrated and angry. We couldn't think straight. We got easily irritated. We weren't our normal, reasonable selves.

It's not easy to step away from the pain, to put it in perspective or to move past it. Sometimes ministry hurts because all we can see is the offense and the offenders.

4. Church work is just plain hard.

Peter Drucker has famously ranked the job of pastor as one of the four hardest professions. We're right alongside the president of the United States, university presidents and hospital CEOs. At least we're in good company.

Why is ministry so hard?

Samuel Chand in Leadership Pain explains that in former days, pastors only needed to preach and care for their flock. Now they need to run a much more complex organization involving buildings, finances, human resources and community partnerships. Not the usual seminary curricula.

In addition, our churches sit in the middle of a post-modern culture. Our church members can listen to the best preachers every time they slap on their headphones and go for a run. They only come to church a couple times a month.

The colloquialism "it's an uphill battle" comes to mind.

5. Your gifting leaves you weak in other areas.

  • You may be a good preacher, but you don't like administration.
  • You may be full of vision and passion, but you disappoint people when you're not at their bedside.
  • You may be a great shepherd, but you can't move the church forward.

We bring our strengths to our ministry, but our weaknesses become the focal point of the criticism. We work harder, try to do better, wear stress like a badge and persevere for the sake of the gospel. But our weaknesses come hand in hand with our gifts.

6. You are caught in difficult circumstances.

You didn't know that the senior pastor was going to resign in a cloud of dust two months after you arrived, and that the congregation wouldn't trust anyone for years.

You didn't foresee the chronic illness in your spouse, the rebelliousness in your kids or the financial struggles you would face. Our difficult circumstances manifest in symptoms of grief and stress.

The next time you're with other pastors, go behind the "how big is your church" facade and quietly ask how they are really doing.

You'll find that everyone has difficult circumstances.

6. You expected it to be easier.

It would have been good to know when you went into ministry what it was really going to be like. We didn't know that most churches don't grow, and that growth, when it does come, brings new challenges.

I don't know why we expected a world of easy blessing. It wasn't easy for any of the leaders in the Bible:

  • David hid in a cave from the murderous Saul.
  • Abraham was asked to sacrifice his son.
  • Moses had millions of malcontents.
  • Paul was beaten, stoned, shipwrecked and so on.
  • And Jesus bore our sins on the cross.

As you've noticed, leadership pain is normal. It isn't a mistake. It's God's proving ground.

What to Do about the Ministry Pain You're Facing

1. Run to Jesus.

You may feel too numb to practice spiritual disciplines or to expect anything resembling hope or joy.

Let me gently suggest that you need to get out of town like Elijah. You need extended time alone with Jesus.

Find a cave and bring your complaints to God. Listen for his voice. He got you into this mess. Let him get you out of it. Let him comfort you, and like Elijah, let him strengthen you (1 Kings 19).

2. Embrace the pain and decide to grow.

Easier said than done, I know.

When you realize that the worst thing to do is to go numb and ignore the pain, and the best thing to do is to decide that you won't give up, then you're ready to see from Jesus how to grow through this.

You can do it.

You may never have expected Hebrews 12:7 to speak to the pastor, but it does: "Endure discipline; God is dealing with you as with sons. For what son is there who ma father does not discipline?"

And "Yet afterward it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness in those who have been trained by it" (Heb. 12:11b).

3. Find someone to talk to.

Maybe you're one of the lucky ones, and you have someone around who will listen to you.

Most pastors are too isolated to share their heaviest burdens. If that's your situation, then pay someone to talk with you.

I'm not kidding. Get a counselor to help you work through what you're feeling and how you can learn from your situation.

You'll make progress, you'll feel better, and you never have to worry about your counselor betraying you or leaving you.

4. Get out of town for a short vacation.

Or take a longer time away if you can manage it. Go camping. Use Groupon to find a deal to take the kids to a waterpark. Or take your spouse on a weekend getaway.

Do something fun and different. Get some fresh air and a new point of view. Let your problems fade in importance.

I'm often surprised at how much lighter my load feels when I'm out of town.

Here's how to get away if it seems too hard: Why Pastors Should Get Away Every Summer—and How to Make it Work.

5. Manage your own expectations.

Ministry is hard. But hard things don't need to floor you. Somehow it's a little less discouraging when you decide to see challenges as a normal part of life, and when you embrace the principle that God uses pain to grow leaders.

6. Stand on God's Word

Open up your Bible and read Psalm 31.

Here are some highlights:

  • "Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; my eye wastes away with grief, yes, my soul and my body" (v. 9).
  • "Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, which You have done for those seeking refuge in You before people! You will hide them in the secret of Your presence from conspirators; You will keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues. Blessed be the Lord, for He has shown me His marvelous lovingkindness in a fortified city" (vv. 19-21).
  • "Be strong, and He will strengthen your heart, all you who wait for the Lord" (v. 24).

    Here are more Bible verses that strengthen us in times of trouble:

"For this reason we do not lose heart: Even though our outward man is perishing, yet our inward man is being renewed day by day. Our light affliction, which lasts but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor. 4:16-18).

"Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, yes, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand" (Isa. 41:10).

"But he knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold" (Job 23:10).

Here are a few more: Isaiah 40:28-31, Joshua 1:7-9, Lamentations 3 and Ephesians 6:10-18. Or go back and read your old favorites again.

Let God speak to you through His Word, and he will ease your ministry pain.

What's Next?

Read Samuel R. Chand's book, Leadership Pain, for a deep dive in learning how to use your pain for growth. Chand advises that you should continually raise your threshold for leadership pain because you will only grow as a leader to the limit of the pain you are willing to face.

I see hope for you. {eoa}

So I was returning this blender, once again public place so I'm allowed to record by law. No offense to this person, but you can observe the two individuals in the video turn and look and continue exiting the store. Everyone is controlled with this technology. Total individual control technology down to your DNA resonate frequency. This is what organized stalking really is. This is an artificial intelligence hive per grand Masonic Lodge(were it is monitored programmed and controlled), in one globalized mind control system.Controlled by the Illuminati over Freemasons. This is how they maintain control over everyone, but it's real purpose is a weapons system for the occult. This is unfortunate but true. This is transhumanism, really a globalized total control technology hive weapons system for secret societies. This was confirmed to me by Robert Duncan. He is Illuminati as well. Your body is an organic machine and an electromagnetic chemical process. Your own natural electromagnetic field is synchronized with the artificial intelligence's artificial low frequency electromagnetic field. This creates the scalar field effect on organic tissue. This is how the computer attacks you, psychologically and physically, down to your DNA. The organized stalkers are controlled and don't know it's happening to assist in negative behavior modification. You are in a remote meg(magnetic encephelogram), and a Fmri(functional magnetic imager). This is how the artificial intelligence targets your body. The artificial intelligence is programmed with occult ritual abuse, all game theory mathematical models(hyper game, non-coooperative, and standard game model s), and Western esotericism as well. I was ring fenced or targeted as a child in 1989 at four and my family by my cousin(Freemason). I didn't even realize this until recently.This is trauma based transhumanism(global mind and body control down to your DNA) to death. This system was available then. It was confirmed that the problem is not that this exists(even though it violates an enormous amount of laws and regulations), but that evil people control it. This being the decendants of the top Illuminati families(Rockefeller and Rothschild). Most likely Rothschild(world Bank).

Plyometric Training(반동성 웨이트 트레이닝) 참고문헌 Ⅰ. 개요 인체의 운동은 근육이 수축하는 힘에 의해 일어난다. 근육의 근세포에 자극이 전달되면 근세포에서는 화학적 변화가 일어나 수축운동을 수행하게 된다. 인체의 근육은 골격근 심장근 평활근 세 가지로 구성되어 있는데 보통 근육이라고 하면 신체 운동에 직접 관계하는 골격근을 의미한다. 골격근은 물 75% 단백질 20% 기타 물질 5%로 구성되어 있다. 골격근은 체중을 지탱하는 역할을 하며 신체를 움직여 위치를 이동한다. 골격근은 심한 운동 중 산소를 소비하기 때문에 혈액의 대부분을 필요로 한다. 따라서 간이나 신장 위 등 다른 기관의 기능은 골격근의 상대적인 활동에 따라 크게 좌우된다. 심장근과 평활근은 수축할 때 심장과 내장 안에 있는 혈액과 소화물질을 압박하게 되며 근육의 길이가 짧아지면서 혈액이나 소화 물질을 압력이 낮은 쪽으로 이동시키게 된다. 인체의 근육은 각 부위에 따라 근섬유의 분포가 다르다. 유산소성 운동종목의 선수들은 보편적으로 서근 혹은 지근섬유의 비율이 높은 반면 무산소성 종목의 선수들은 속근섬의 분포비율이 높다. 그러나 근섬유의 비율이 운동 수행력을 결정하는 절대적인 조건은 아니다. 근 수축의 종류는 등장성 등척성 등속성 수축으로 구분할 수 있다. 등장성 수축이란 근육에 가해지는 부하는 일정하게 유지되면서 근섬유의 길이가 변화하는 수축을 말한다. 등척성 수축이란 근섬유의 길이는 변화하지 않고 장력(힘)이 발생하는 상태를 말한다. 등속성 수축이란 관절의 각도가 동일한 속도로 운동하는 수축을 말한다. 근육은 뼈를 잡아당겨 우리 몸을 지탱하거나 움직이게 하는 역할을 한다. 근육이 약해지면 큰 힘을 내지 못하며 무거운 물건을 들거나 강한 운동을 할 때 상해를 입게 되는 경우가 많다. 뿐만 아니라 바른 자세를 유지하는 데도 힘이 들고 그로 인해 요통과 같은 질병이 생길 수도 있다. 따라서 근육을 튼튼하게 발달시키는 일은 건강하고 활기찬 생활을 영위하기 위해서 필요할 뿐만 아니라 뼈를 튼튼하게 하고 아름다운 몸매를 가꾸기 위해서도 필요하다. ⅰ. 이상목(2000) 웨이트트레이닝과 써키트웨이트트레이닝 체격 체력 심폐기능 및 혈중 젖산농도에 미치는 영향 ⅱ. 이용수 조성계 김영수 김의수(1991) 서키트웨이트 트레이닝 운동이 단시간내 혈중지질 및 지단백콜레스테롤에 미치는영향 체육과학연구과제종합보고서 ⅲ. 이상길(1997) 웨이트트레이닝 운동 강도가 최대 근력에 미치는 영향 울산대 교육 대학원 ⅳ. 장동진(1997) 트레이닝을 위한 운동 처방론 홍경 ⅴ. 하현보(2005) 운동과 건강 으뜸출판사 ⅵ. 황남일(1998) 10주간의 써킷트 웨이트 트레이닝이 비만아의 혈청 콜레스테롤 지단백 및 신체 조성에 미치는 영향 석사학위청구논문 서강대학교 대학원 웨이트트레이닝(헬스, 보디빌딩)의 운동시간과 빈도, 웨이트트레이닝(헬스, 보디빌딩)의 준비운동과 부위별 운동법, 웨이트트레이닝(헬스,보디빌딩)의 기대 효과, 웨이트트레이닝(헬스)과 크레아틴 및 식이요법 분석[보디빌딩]보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)의 개념과 조건, 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)의 훈련종목과 훈련원칙, 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)의 운동방법, 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)과 크레아틴 분석[헬스]웨이트트레이닝(보디빌딩, 헬스)과 헬스클럽선택, 웨이트트레이닝(보디빌딩, 헬스)과 영양소 및 식습관, 웨이트트레이닝(보디빌딩, 헬스)과 다이어트, 웨이트트레이닝(보디빌딩, 헬스)의 운동프로그램 분석[웨이트트레이닝]서키트 웨이트트레이닝과 파워트레이닝, 웨이트트레이닝(보디빌딩, 헬스)과 다중관절훈련 및 허리관리법, 웨이트트레이닝(보디빌딩, 헬스)의 자세와 부위별 운동법, 웨이트트레이닝(헬스)의 식사요령과 Q&A 모음헬스 보디빌딩 웨이트트레이닝 방법과 기본상식보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)의 정의, 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)의 역사, 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)의 조건, 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)의 훈련원칙, 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝)의 훈련방법[헬스]보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)의 의의, 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)의 원칙, 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)의 훈련요점, 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스)과 보충제, 보디빌딩(헬스)과 필요영양소 분석[보디빌딩][헬스]보디빌딩(헬스, 웨이트트레이닝)의 정의, 보디빌딩(헬스, 웨이트트레이닝)의 훈련원칙과 훈련요점, 보디빌딩(헬스, 웨이트트레이닝)의 경기와 규칙, 보디빌딩(헬스, 웨이트트레이닝)의 제언 분석[스포츠][운동][영양][다이어트][보디빌딩]스포츠의 정의, 스포츠와 자기관리, 스포츠와 보디빌딩(웨이트트레이닝, 헬스), 스포츠와 다이어트, 스포츠와 영양소, 스포츠와 영양섭취, 스포츠와 스포츠음료 심층 분석생활스포츠지도사 자격증 족보(보디빌딩) 구술,실기 실제 나온 문제들로 구성된 족보입니다.뉴스포츠 종류와 설명스포츠활동운동 레포트 권투편뉴스포츠에 대한 레포트입니다웨이트 트레이닝 레포트 조회수:2027회

(3) 미술과 건축에의 이용 황금비는 음악에 적용되어 우리에게 즐거움을 선사할 뿐 아니라 시각적 아름다움도 선사한다. 건축 회화 조각 등에도 이용되어왔는데 ‘배흘림기둥’으로 유명한 고려 중엽에 세워진 부석사 무량수전은 정면 5칸 측면 3칸 그리고 평면에 1:1.618의 황금비가 적용되었고 무위사 극락전 화엄사 대웅전 등에서도 기둥의 비가 황금비가 적용되고 있음을 볼 수 있다. 고대의 7대 불가사의 중 하나로 알려진 기자(Gizeh)의 피라미드는 이집트 제4왕조의 세 피라미드인데 가장 북쪽에 있는 것이 두 번째 왕 쿠푸의 것으로 최고다. 정사각형 토대위에 쌓아올린 삼각뿔의 형태로 이 피라미드는 밑면의 넓이는 13(헥타르) 또는 8(에이크)이며 신기하게도 평지에서 피라미드를 바라보면 어느 쪽으로 바라본다 하더라고 오직 3개의 선만이 보인다. 또한 높은 곳에서 바라보면 5개의 선이 보이고 하늘 위에서 바라본 피라미드는 8개의 선이 보인다. 이 역시 피보나치 수이다.

Rupture limit evaluation of human cerebral aneurysms wall: Experimental study.

J Biomech. 2018 Aug 22;77:76-82

Authors: Brunel H, Ambard D, Dufour H, Roche PH, Costalat V, Jourdan F

Abstract
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Rupture risk of intracranial aneurysms is a major issue for public healthcare. A way to obtain an individual rupture risk assessment is a main objective of many research teams in the world. For many years, we have investigated the relationship between the mechanical properties of aneurysm wall tissues and the rupture risk. In this work, we try to go further and investigate rupture limit values.
METHODS: Following surgical clipping, a specific conservation protocol was applied to aneurysmal tissues in order to preserve their mechanical properties. Thirty-nine intracranial aneurysms (27 females, 12 males) were tested using a uniaxial tensile test machine under physiological conditions, temperature, and saline isotonic solution. These represented 24 unruptured and 15 ruptured aneurysms. Stress/strain curves were then obtained for each sample, and a fitting algorithm was applied following a Yeoh hyperelastic model with 2 parameters. Moreover, uniaxial tensile tests were conducted until rupture of samples to obtain values of stress and strain rupture limit.
RESULTS: The significant parameter a C2 of the hyperelastic Yeoh model, allowed us to classify samples' rigidity following the terminology we adopted in previous papers (Costalat et al., 2011; Sanchez et al., 2013): Soft, Stiff and Intermediate. Moreover, strain/stress rupture limit values were gathered and analyzed thanks to the tissue rigidity, the status of the aneurysm (initially ruptured or unruptured) and the gender of the patient.
CONCLUSION: Strain rupture limit was found quite stable around 20% and seems not to be correlated with the status of the aneurysm (initially ruptured or unruptured), neither with the gender of the patient. However, stretch and stress rupture limit seems not to be independent on the rigidity. The study confirms that ruptured aneurysms mainly present a soft tissue and unruptured aneurysms present a stiff material.

          Auto-Scaling Network Resources using Machine Learning to Improve QoS and Reduce Cost. (arXiv:1808.02975v1 [cs.NI])      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Sabidur Rahman, Tanjila Ahmed, Minh Huynh, Massimo Tornatore, Biswanath Mukherjee

Virtualization of network functions (as virtual routers, virtual firewalls, etc.) enables network owners to efficiently respond to the increasing dynamicity of network services. Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) are easy to deploy, update, monitor, and manage. The number of VNF instances, similar to generic computing resources in cloud, can be easily scaled based on load. Hence, auto-scaling (of resources without human intervention) has been receiving attention. Prior studies on auto-scaling use measured network traffic load to dynamically react to traffic changes. In this study, we propose a proactive Machine Learning (ML) based approach to perform auto-scaling of VNFs in response to dynamic traffic changes. Our proposed ML classifier learns from past VNF scaling decisions and seasonal/spatial behavior of network traffic load to generate scaling decisions ahead of time. Compared to existing approaches for ML-based auto-scaling, our study explores how the properties (e.g., start-up time) of underlying virtualization technology impacts Quality of Service (QoS) and cost savings. We consider four different virtualization technologies: Xen and KVM, based on hypervisor virtualization, and Docker and LXC, based on container virtualization. Our results show promising accuracy of the ML classifier using real data collected from a private ISP. We report in-depth analysis of the learning process (learning-curve analysis), feature ranking (feature selection, Principal Component Analysis (PCA), etc.), impact of different sets of features, training time, and testing time. Our results show how the proposed methods improve QoS and reduce operational cost for network owners. We also demonstrate a practical use-case example (Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) with VNFs and backbone network) to show that our ML methods save significant cost for network service leasers.

Authors: Chengrun Yang, Yuji Akimoto, Dae Won Kim, Madeleine Udell

Algorithm selection and hyperparameter tuning remain two of the most challenging tasks in machine learning. The number of machine learning applications is growing much faster than the number of machine learning experts, hence we see an increasing demand for efficient automation of learning processes. Here, we introduce OBOE, an algorithm for time-constrained model selection and hyperparameter tuning. Taking advantage of similarity between datasets, OBOE finds promising algorithm and hyperparameter configurations through collaborative filtering. Our system explores these models under time constraints, so that rapid initializations can be provided to warm-start more fine-grained optimization methods. One novel aspect of our approach is a new heuristic for active learning in time-constrained matrix completion based on optimal experiment design. Our experiments demonstrate that OBOE delivers state-of-the-art performance faster than competing approaches on a test bed of supervised learning problems.

We study the problem of how to breakup many point sets in $\mathbb{R}^d$ into smaller parts using a few splitting (shared) hyperplanes. This problem is related to the classical Ham-Sandwich Theorem. We provide a logarithmic approximation to the optimal solution using the greedy algorithm for submodular optimization.


          Soft Actor-Critic: Off-Policy Maximum Entropy Deep Reinforcement Learning with a Stochastic Actor. (arXiv:1801.01290v2 [cs.LG] UPDATED)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Tuomas Haarnoja, Aurick Zhou, Pieter Abbeel, Sergey Levine

Model-free deep reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms have been demonstrated on a range of challenging decision making and control tasks. However, these methods typically suffer from two major challenges: very high sample complexity and brittle convergence properties, which necessitate meticulous hyperparameter tuning. Both of these challenges severely limit the applicability of such methods to complex, real-world domains. In this paper, we propose soft actor-critic, an off-policy actor-critic deep RL algorithm based on the maximum entropy reinforcement learning framework. In this framework, the actor aims to maximize expected reward while also maximizing entropy. That is, to succeed at the task while acting as randomly as possible. Prior deep RL methods based on this framework have been formulated as Q-learning methods. By combining off-policy updates with a stable stochastic actor-critic formulation, our method achieves state-of-the-art performance on a range of continuous control benchmark tasks, outperforming prior on-policy and off-policy methods. Furthermore, we demonstrate that, in contrast to other off-policy algorithms, our approach is very stable, achieving very similar performance across different random seeds.


          Inapproximability of Matrix $p\rightarrow q$ Norms. (arXiv:1802.07425v2 [cs.CC] UPDATED)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authors: Vijay Bhattiprolu, Mrinalkanti Ghosh, Venkatesan Guruswami, Euiwoong Lee, Madhur Tulsiani

We study the problem of computing the $p\rightarrow q$ norm of a matrix $A \in R^{m \times n}$, defined as \[ \|A\|_{p\rightarrow q} ~:=~ \max_{x \,\in\, R^n \setminus \{0\}} \frac{\|Ax\|_q}{\|x\|_p} \] This problem generalizes the spectral norm of a matrix ($p=q=2$) and the Grothendieck problem ($p=\infty$, $q=1$), and has been widely studied in various regimes. When $p \geq q$, the problem exhibits a dichotomy: constant factor approximation algorithms are known if $2 \in [q,p]$, and the problem is hard to approximate within almost polynomial factors when $2 \notin [q,p]$.

The regime when $p < q$, known as \emph{hypercontractive norms}, is particularly significant for various applications but much less well understood. The case with $p = 2$ and $q > 2$ was studied by [Barak et al, STOC'12] who gave sub-exponential algorithms for a promise version of the problem (which captures small-set expansion) and also proved hardness of approximation results based on the Exponential Time Hypothesis. However, no NP-hardness of approximation is known for these problems for any $p < q$.

We study the hardness of approximating matrix norms in both the above cases and prove the following results:

- We show that for any $1< p < q < \infty$ with $2 \notin [p,q]$, $\|A\|_{p\rightarrow q}$ is hard to approximate within $2^{O(\log^{1-\epsilon}\!n)}$ assuming $NP \not\subseteq BPTIME(2^{\log^{O(1)}\!n})$. This suggests that, similar to the case of $p \geq q$, the hypercontractive setting may be qualitatively different when $2$ does not lie between $p$ and $q$.

- For all $p \geq q$ with $2 \in [q,p]$, we show $\|A\|_{p\rightarrow q}$ is hard to approximate within any factor than $1/(\gamma_{p^*} \cdot \gamma_q)$, where for any $r$, $\gamma_r$ denotes the $r^{th}$ norm of a gaussian, and $p^*$ is the dual norm of $p$.

          GameMaker Studio 2 Now Officially Supports Switch With Export Button      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

It was announced earlier this year that Nintendo was officially supporting GameMaker on the Switch, an engine used for games like Undertale, Minit, Hyper Light Drifter, and more. The support opened the door for a lot of indie games coming, as evidenced by Switch ports of Undertale, Minit, and Hyper Light Drifter. When the deal was announced, both Nintendo and GameMaker company YoYo Games planned to make it even easier to get games on Switch by hoping to integrate a "Port to Switch" button.

The new version of GameMaker Studio 2 is in beta and finally incorporates that useful option.

If you're planning to make a Switch version of a GameMaker game, it no longer has to be done independently of the rest of your work. You do still need a Switch license and be approved as a Nintendo developer beforehand, but the work was at one point a lot harder than it is now.

The Switch version of Minit released today, Undertale is scheduled for September 15 in Japan and should be at a similar time in the west, and Hyper Light Drifter should release later this year.


          Comment on Macroeconomics Has Lost Its Way by Edward C D Ingram      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
There are many good insights in this essay. However, there is no clear explanation of how the state will create all of the money needed, nor how the state will know how much money is needed, (populations and demographics change, for example, and the amount needed for reserves for international transactions varies, the savings appetite and money on standby level varies), nor is it clear how and to whom the state will distribute the new money it creates as and when needed, nor how the state will remove money when necessary to maintain the (not clearly stated) target. Is that target inflation, production, or some mysterious stock of money? What my group, which is now established as the Ingram School of Macro-Economic Design and Management, suggests that what is first needed is something called a Financially Stable Financial Framework, which like a well designed glider can largely cope with the necessary adjustments without re-distributing wealth - at least not enough to worry about. Certainly those that spend new money first get a pricing advantage over the others but as long as the percentage changes in prices are small and there is a trade-off between the avoidance of an excessive slowing of the economy with significantly sub-optimum use of resources and significantly sub-optimum output, because people have chosen to save more to import more and to borrow less or repay faster, choices that they are entitled to make, and will make, then there is reason to create and distribute some new money to lend or to be spent by everyone who is spending money. Either people have those choices in which as Keynes made clear, some intervention will be helpful, or by some mysterious process people do not make those choices. Clearly they always will make those choices. When EVERYONE gets new money to spend the effect is to have some free goods and services delivered to everyone from everyone. There is no harm in that except that some people / entities will get more than others no matter how the system works, because they spend more. Here we may be talking a bout a reduction in VAT subsidised by new Sovereign Money. And a subsidy going to spending on regular savings, donations, and repayments of debt where no VAT is involved. When new money is only distributed through new lending, however well managed that stock of money may be, the dependence of the economy upon lending is unhealthy and socially distressing in aggregate. As is pointed out by Alasdair MacCleod, this also gives a pricing advantage to new borrowers. What everyone should know is that prices always vary and some get luckier than others. The objective of minimising this inequality through lowering inflation is a worthy one. But lowering inflation beyond a certain point is not practical while the financial framework of finance, rules and regulations, taxation and customary ways of doing things ensures that as the level of inflation gets lowered, the financial instabilities get larger. That is how things are today. This is the first issue to address. Then we can look at the remaining issues and tackle them. It is entirely possible, as we demonstrate, to have a financial framework that self-adjusts to variations in the level of aggregate earnings / spending so that wealth / spending power (as opposed to purchasing power) does not get re-distributed and people spend what they have earned. We must look at the areas of government debt – fixed interest money back contracts re-distribute wealth, in the area of housing finance, which is about as financially unstable as anything short of hyper-inflation can get, and the values of the currency, there is a great need to reform. When as in Keynesian Theory, to avoid a recession, the state must instead borrow more money and spend it, this adds a cost to tax payers and raises the Gini Index. Make the needed reforms, change the design and the dynamics of the economy, and there will not be any need to do that.

On Thursday, July 13th, Dr. Vanessa Grubbs visited Seattle, Washington's Third Place Books to discuss her fresh new publication,Hundreds of Interlaced Fingers: A Kidney Doctor's Search for the Perfect Match.Dr. Grubbs describes her black husband's struggle obtaining a kidney transplant and her mission to donate one of her own kidneys to save him. Along the way, Dr. Grubbs describes how Black people are predictably less likely to receive life-saving organ transplants than whites. This book discussion was held in a book store in hyper-White area of Seattle and moderated by a White medical doctor. The Suspected Racist facilitator asked no questions about Racism, which is a central theme of Grubbs's book. Following the presentation, Grubbs spoke with Gus, branded him a "militant," and confessed she had "planned not to talk about racism." Numerous Whites approached Gus following the discussion and feigned nervousness and appreciation for asking questions about Racism. #Tacky INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943#

Dr. Carolyn West visits The Context of White Supremacy. Teaching a range of courses related to violence and sexuality, Dr. West investigates the long-term consequences of intimate partner violence and sexual assault as well as the hypersexualization of young women in the media. During our most recent discussion with Dr. Martin Kevorkian, he informed listeners about a superb lecture featuring Dr. West's research on White Supremacy in pornography. Her talk drew from content featured in her documentary film, "Let Me Tell Ya'll Bout Black Chics: Images of Black Women in Pornography." Dr. West used the documentary to expose the flagrant, racist sexual exploitation of black bodies. She also challenged White feminists, who speak loudly and often about the commodification of White Women, but remain mum regarding the porn industry's "sexual sewering" of black females and males. We'll ask Dr. West to speculate why White Supremacists harbor such an insatiable sexual desire for black people, who they consistently label as ignorant and primitive. #AntiBlackness INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943#

IN STRICT BOLLYWOOD TERMS, women stay home and concern themselves with their “honor” while men go about avenging all the tarnishing done to the honor of their wives, sisters, mothers, girlfriends, and any other woman they remotely know.

In Bollywood films, there’s a very gendered divide. For men, revenge is seen as logic driven and well planned. It always serves a larger good and invariably becomes an action-packed spectacle filled with guns, explosions, and, most important, other men. A woman’s revenge, on the other hand, is an anomaly in and of itself because it means taking ownership of the crimes committed against her, fighting for herself instead of ceding vengeance to a male relative. Though many Bollywood films feature revenge against a rapist, when women take revenge into their own hands, the assumption is that their actions are guided purely by emotion, an almost hysterical acting out with no rationale. Hence a woman’s revenge is seen as a crime with little or no redemptive value and no moral high ground. Pursuing vigilante justice makes them “bad” women who are overstepping rightful boundaries.

In 1988’s Khoon Bhari Maang (Blood on the Head), revenge becomes the only goal for protagonist Aarti (Rekha). The title refers to the Hindu practice of married women applying vermilion on the parting of their hair as a mark of their marital status, but in this case, the marker is blood. The exaggeratedly plain and extremely wealthy widow, Aarti, is shamed into marrying Sanjay (Kabir Bedi), who then throws her into a lake where he believes she’s been eaten by crocodiles—and escapes with all her money. Aarti survives and undergoes plastic surgery to emerge as the hyper-glamorous supermodel Jyoti.

On top of not taking women’s revenge plots seriously, Bollywood female revenge dramas often fetishize the “woman on the kill” in an Annie Oakley–like manner in which her anger and wielding of weapons is meant to be a source of titillation, her disdain for men only a costume. Jyoti appears onscreen in tight pants, riding horseback and wielding a whip. Invoking feisty warrior goddesses from Hindu mythology, she tells Sanjay, “You have only seen women as toys. Now you see me wield the sword of womanhood.” And then she whips him into the same crocodile-infested lake where he once left her. Sanjay begs for mercy and, for a moment, we see Jyoti/Aarti lost in a flashback, close to forgiving him, but then she snaps out of it and gives him one last ruthless shove into the lake. She is avenged, but her bodily honor has little to do with it. Instead she wants the money and property that were rightfully hers, capital that will renew her social standing and literally pay for a new face.

The 2011 film 7 Khoon Maaf (Seven Sins Forgiven) is the story of Susanna’s (Priyanka Chopra) search for love—and how she kills six husbands when they fail to live up to her trust or demands. She feeds her doubting and abusive first husband to a panther and administers a heroin overdose to her lying, cheating second. She follows up by burying her third husband alive, poisoning the fourth with snakes, overdosing the fifth with Viagra, and finally, shooting the sixth. The murders, which start out as targeted attacks on the men who have failed Susanna, eventually become crimes of necessity to protect her secret. Though based on her romantic desire to find love, nothing about Susanna’s revenge is soft. With her own protection and needs at the core of her revenge-seeking, it is easy to dismiss Susanna as an immoral person driven to crime for selfish reasons, but it is hard to dismiss the genius in the flawless and innovative schemes she comes up with and executes neatly, each murder undetected by law officers.

The 2012 film Kahaani (Story) features a woman plotting revenge that involves false identities and fake pregnancies in order to (here comes the gender reversal!) avenge her husband’s death. Vidya’s (Vidya Balan) complex story line implicates senior Intelligence Bureau officials and proves their involvement in a poisonous gas attack. The film employs sexist clichés of motherhood and widowhood—both of which are used to portray Indian women weaker than men—that Vidya uses to her advantage. Her revenge is not only personal, it also serves the larger good of ridding the government of corrupt officials.

These films also rely on the extensive roster of fearsome Hindu warrior-goddesses to frame their protagonists: Aarti’s resurrection takes place with an image of Shakti, the goddess of power, behind her, and she kills Sanjay as Kali, the destroyer of all evil, looks on from a portrait. The climax of Vidya’s revenge plays out in Calcutta, as people celebrate Durga Puja in a five-day ritualistic celebration of  a goddess created by male gods when they failed to vanquish the demon Mahishasura. Much like Durga, who pierced her trident through the demon’s chest, Vidya yanks off her hairpin to stab the side of a villain’s neck.

For a country where religion and pop culture often intersect onscreen, these comparisons go a long way in legitimizing female-revenge narratives; in a way, such stories are a reminder of the power of latent female anger that’s as old as our mythologies.

For a country where religion and pop culture often intersect onscreen, these comparisons go a long way in legitimizing female-revenge narratives; in a way, such stories are a reminder of the power of latent female anger that’s as old as our mythologies. Moreover, the women in these films are widows—a status that has socially, economically, and sexually disempowered Indian women. It is a feminist questioning of that discrimination when these women, their status diminished by the loss of their husbands, find themselves empowered enough to become exactly like men, the usual carriers of the revenge narrative. Angry women don’t need to be goddesses for their anger to be legitimate, though. I look forward to the day Hindi cinema recognizes that angry women are just as human as caring, loving, and maternal women.

Female revenge in Hindi cinema is typically viewed as an illogical, estrogen-driven act executed through treachery and lies. But there is nothing hidden or impulsive about the motives of Jyoti, Susanna, and Vidya; the “lies” are all careful, tactical decisions that are well planned in order to achieve the women’s goals. Within Hindi film’s shortsighted binary of the “good woman” (with all the feminine goodness) versus the “bad vamp” (with all the qualities considered terrible in a woman, but often celebrated in a man), these characters act as cultural interventions that help dismantle formerly watertight notions of womanhood. These characters are all “good” women: heroines who are loving mothers, caring wives, and empathetic employers—but also ace planners and calculative risk-takers.

This deviation makes us think beyond the trivial “scorned” woman of “hell hath no fury” fame, and also opens up new possibilities for a crop of female characters who plan and plot with their brains, needing no male savior to keep their honor intact. These women are not bad—but they are ruthless enough to gain control over their victimhood and grief.

          Comment on Juan Soto, Joe Simpson, and When Commentary Becomes Defamatory by John Autin      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I'm pretty sure I'm not biased in Simpson's favor, but I would be flat-out astonished if there is a precedent for a finding of defamation in a case TRULY similar to what happened here. None of the quoted passages seems all that on-point or persuasive. While Simpson's statement was unpleasant, it amounts to "he doesn't look 19 to me," which I'd bet most of us here have said more than once about young pro athletes. The degree of implication -- of suggesting that he actually IS older than 19 -- is far weaker than even a commonplace hyperbole such as "if he's 19, I'm a monkey's uncle!" An even milder interpretation is that it's just a logical conditional statement. I can say "if he's human, he's mortal," without fear of being sued for "implying" he's not human, just for starting with "if." Lastly, on "reckless disregard" -- Could Simpson even have gotten access to a legally definitive proof of Soto's age? I'm not questioning Soto's age, but what actual proof is open to the public, or to Joe Simpson? And if there's no access to the definitive truth, is it legally possible to "recklessly disregard" that truth?

Ăn gì để có thân hình 6 múi: 10 nguyên tắc ăn uống cần phải nhớ

Bạn biết là trong tập luyện dinh dưỡng chiếm 70% thành công. Vậy ăn gì ăn gì để có thân hình 6 múi bây giờ, hãy cùng điểm qua 10 nguyên tắc khi ăn uống này để dễ dàng sở hữu thân hình như người mẫu hơn nhé.

Ăn gì để có thân hình 6 múi: 10 nguyên tắc ăn uống cần phải nhớTrong chúng ta, việc ăn để có body to hơn nhìn chung ai cũng làm được nhưng để có body có đường nét, khối cơ bắp rõ ràng thì không phải ai cũng làm được.

Và dưới đây là 10 nguyên tắc khi ăn uống giúp trả lời câu hỏi ăn gì để có thân hình 6 múi cho bạn.

1. Biết về những con số của bạn

Trước khi bạn suy nghĩ về câu chuyện ăn gì ăn gì để có thân hình 6 múi thì bạn cần phải biết mình đang nhắm đến 1 mục tiêu nào đó như tăng cân, giảm cân, tăng cơ, tăng cân. Sau đó thì bạn cần phải biết được mục tiêu calories mà mình phải ăn hằng ngày.

Bạn có thể tính toán BMR để xác định mức calo mà mình cần phải sử dụng, tuy nhiên với các VĐV thì họ có 1 mẹo hay hơn để đỡ phải tính toán rắc rối đó là lấy cân nặng của mình nhân cho 32 hoặc 36 là ra được số calo mà mình cần phải ăn để tăng cân (ví dụ bạn nặng 70 ký thì mức calo của bạn cần sẽ nằm trong khoảng 2240-2520 calo).

Lượng calo này nên được chia đều trong 5-7 bữa ăn hằng ngày cứ 2-4 tiếng nên ăn một lần. Nếu bạn muốn giảm cân thì chỉ cần nhân cho 24 hoặc muốn giữ cân thì nhân cho 26-30 là được.

Khi bạn lập kế hoạch ăn uống để đạt được các mục tiêu của mình thì đừng quên là tất cả lượng calo đối với từng người đều không như nhau. Bởi vì nếu nó mà như nhau thì body ai cũng đẹp như nhau rồi đúng không nào.

Các bạn nên giữ tỉ lệ protein khoảng 30% và 50-60% carb và 10-20% chất béo để có 1 bữa ăn đầy đủ chất nhé.

2. Tránh thay đổi quá nhanh

Bạn có thể muốn mọi thứ xảy ra nhanh hơn, nhưng việc thay đổi thể hình mà diễn ra nhanh thường lại không tốt cho sức khỏe chút nào. Hãy để nó diễn ra chậm rãi. Mức tăng hoặc giảm cân an toàn cho sức khỏe là 0.5-0.7kg mỗi tuần, việc giảm cân chậm này đảm bảo là bạn giảm mỡ chứ không phải nước hoặc tăng cân là cơ chứ không phải mỡ. Nếu bạn giảm cân quá nhanh thì khả năng cơ bắp của bạn cũng giảm đi.

Ăn gì để có thân hình 6 múi: 10 nguyên tắc ăn uống cần phải nhớNếu sau 3 tuần, bạn không đạt được mục tiêu như đề nghị ở trên thì hãy tăng hoặc giảm 200-400 calo mỗi ngày. Duy trì tỉ lệ macro thêm 3 tuần nữa và tiếp tục tinh chỉnh tỉ lệ Macro đó đến khi nó đạt được mục tiêu như khuyến nghị.

3. Đừng để thiếu protein trong bữa ăn

Việc có được một vóc dáng săn chắc hoặc múi bụng rõ nét thì việc ăn protein là đặc biệt quan trọng và nguồn protein hoàn chỉnh tốt nhất là từ thịt, trứng cá và sữa.

"Tôi thường chọn nguồn Protein từ cá, đặc biệt là cá ngừ sau đó là trứng, sữa, thịt gà, thỉnh thoảng tôi cũng ăn thịt đỏ, yến mạch, các loại hạt" VĐV Ike Catcher cho biết.

Thịt là một nguồn dinh dưỡng giúp đốt cháy chất béo rất mạnh vì nó giúp xây dựng cơ bắp, khi cơ bắp bạn càng phát triển thì lượng calo đốt cháy càng cao và từ đó mỡ trong cơ thể sẽ giảm đi nhanh hơn.

4. Đừng ngại sử dụng TPBS

Thực phẩm bổ sung, đặc biệt là Protein là một sản phẩm hỗ trợ đắc lực cho câu hỏi ăn gì để có thân hình 6 múi đấy. Nó sẽ giúp cho những bạn tập luyện thể hình muốn sở hữu 1 thân hình 6 múi, cơ bắp săn chắc nhanh hơn và hiệu quả hơn. Bởi vì việc ăn đủ lượng Protein 1 ngày không đơn giản như bạn nghĩ, do vậy nếu có điều kiện, hãy sử dụng thực phẩm bổ sung Whey protein để hỗ trợ bạn nhé.

5. Đừng bao giờ né tránh Carb, ít nhất là với carb tốt

Rất nhiều người hiện nay vẫn tin rằng không ăn carb sẽ giảm cân tốt hơn tuy nhiên điều đó không chính xác, đặc biệt là bạn đi tập luyện.

Nếu bạn có 1 ngày tập cường độ cao mà không có Carb thì bạn sẽ không đủ năng lượng để tập luyện được hết công suất của mình và khiến buổi tập trở nên kém hiệu quả.

Ngoài ra, sử dụng chế độ ăn ít carb quá dài có thể khiến bạn dễ bị kiệt sức, khả năng dị hóa cơ bắp và làm cơ cơ bắp bị suy giảm. Tất nhiên mặc dù không loại Carb nào cũng tốt cả.

Ăn gì để có thân hình 6 múi: 10 nguyên tắc ăn uống cần phải nhớRau, củ quả là nguồn carb tốt nhất, giàu chất xơ nên sẽ giúp bạn tiêu hóa lâu hơn và từ đó giúp bạn no lâu hơn. Chúng cũng chưa nhiều nguồn chống oxy hóa giúp tăng cường sức khỏe của bạn.

Carb có 2 loại chính là Carb đơn và Carb phức tạp. Carb đơn giản thường đến từ các loại bánh kẹo, nước trái cây, ngũ cóc, mì ống, cơm, bánh ngọt, bánh mì trắng. Carb nhanh có thể giúp tăng lượng đường máu nhanh chóng giúp bạn tăng năng lượng lên nhanh chóng, tuy nhiên nó cũng sụt giảm rất nhanh.

Đối với hầu hết trường hợp, chúng ta nên tránh ăn carb đơn trừ trường hợp sau khi tập xong.

Hầu hết thời gian, bạn nên sử dụng carb phức tạp để giúp tạo năng lượng lâu dài hơn và tránh những đột biến bất ngờ về đường huyết của mình.

6. Cũng đừng tránh né chất béo

Tương tự như Carb, chất béo cũng có loại xấu và loại tốt. Các chất béo xấu là chất béo bão hòa, và chất béo chuyển hóa (saturated hoặc trans fat) thường có trong các loại thức ăn sẵn như xúc xích, thịt đóng hộp, kem....

Chất béo tốt là chất béo không bãi hòa đơn (monounsaturated ) hoặc không bão hòa đa (polyunsaturated) như Omega 3 và Omega 6. Những chất béo này giúp bạn khỏe mạnh hơn thậm chí là ngăn ngừa bệnh tật. Các nguồn chất béo tốt như cá, hạt, các loại dầu như dầu oliu, dầu hạt cải...

7. Đừng để buổi tập của bạn đổ sông đổ biển vì thiếu dinh dưỡng

Như đã nói ở đầu bài viết, dinh dưỡng chiếm đến 70% cho nên nếu bạn tập rất tốt, kĩ thuật bài bản các kiểu nhưng bạn ăn lại không đủ chất thì....mọi công sức của bạn đều đổ đi hết.

Thời điểm trước khi tập, bạn hãy nạp cho mình những loại thức ăn có chứa L-Citriline, Arginine, Beta-Alanine, Creatine và đừng quên cả Carb nữa nhé, những chất này sẽ giúp bạn có nhiều năng lượng và sức mạnh cho buổi tập của mình.

Sau khi tập luyện, hãy nạp vào cơ thể 20-30g protein cùng với một lượng Carb đơn giúp hấp thụ nhanh, nhờ carb nhanh sẽ giúp vận chuyển protein đến các cơ bắp nhanh chóng hơn.

8. Cẩn trọng với natri

Giống như Carb, Natri (thường có nhiều trong muối) cũng bị giới tập thể hình né tránh vì họ cho rằng Natri khiến họ bị tích nước làm mất "nét" cơ bắp và làm tăng huyết áp. Tuy nhiên, sự thật là việc ăn kiêng Natri hoàn toàn cũng không làm cho huyết áp của bạn cải thiện nhiều hơn

Thực ra là bạn nên cần phải có đủ lượng Natri cần thiết trong ngày, không ăn quá ít cũng không ăn quá cao.

Tuy nhiên cần lưu ý, những loại thức ăn được dán nhãn là ít béo hoặc không béo và các sản phẩm đông lạnh thường lại chứa nhiều Natri. Hãy kiểm tra thành phần dinh dưỡng các loại sản phẩm thật kĩ. Hãy sử dụng các loại thức ăn tươi chưa qua chế biến càng nhiều càng tốt.

9. Đừng để cơ thể thiếu nước

Cơ thể bị thiếu nước xảy ra phổ biến nhiều hơn bạn nghĩ đấy, việc thiếu nước chỉ 1-2% trọng lượng cơ thể cũng gây nên nhiều tác hại trong đó là hiệu suất tập luyện giảm, cơ bắp không còn trông "to hơn" trước và thậm chí là còn khiến não bạn teo lại.

Uống nước đúng cách giúp tăng cân hiệu quả hơnTình trạng thiếu nước nghiêm trọng có thể gây nên: Chuột rút, chóng mặt, tim đập nhanh....khi bị thiếu nước ít thì dấu hiệu khó nhận biết hơn, để giảm nguy cơ mất nước hãy luôn giữ 1 chai nước bên cạnh và để ý màu nước tiểu của mình, nếu nó màu sậm hơn thì bạn đang bị thiếu nước đó. Khi bạn cảm thấy khát thì lúc đó là bạn đang thiếu nước rồi đó.

Ngoài ra nên nhớ, không phải loại thức uống nào cũng cung cấp nước cho cơ thể do vậy đừng nghĩ uống nước ngọt, hay các loại nước tương tự thì bạn đã uống nước rồi nhé. Chỉ nên tính lượng nước từ nước uống tinh khiết thôi nhé.

10. Đừng uống quá nhiều chất cồn

Rượu là kẻ thù của cơ bắp, nó không chỉ ngăn cản cơ thể đốt cháy chất béo mà còn khiến cơ thể tích trữ chất béo hơn. Nếu bạn có thói quen nhậu nhẹt hơi nhiều thì việc tập luyện để tìm kiếm cơ bụng 6 múi sẽ trở nên xa vời hơn trước.

Cơ thể của chúng ta có xu hướng xử lý lượng calo trong rượu trước, nghe thì cũng khá ổn đấy chứ đúng không  ?Tuy nhiên điều đó đồng nghĩa là calo từ chất béo sẽ không được sử dụng và tệ hơn là nếu cơ thể không tiêu thụ hết calo từ rượu lại nó lại lưu trữ lại thành chất béo.

Do vậy, hãy hạn chế tối đa việc sử dụng chất có cồn nếu bạn muốn có 1 body như các fitness model nhé.

Hi vọng, qua bài viết này bạn đã biết ăn gì để có thân hình 6 múi rồi nhé. Đừng quên những quy tắc này và áp dụng nó thật chuẩn trong các bữa ăn của bạn nha.

          Blast scattering soldiers makes Venezuela's Maduro look vulnerable: analysts      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

By Alexandra Ulmer

CARACAS (Reuters) - Deeply unpopular Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro looked keen to project himself as fully in charge of the crisis-ridden military, long a powerbroker, when he addressed its National Guard on Saturday.

One of the main avenues in the capital Caracas was sealed off, commemorative videos for the National Guard's 81st anniversary flashed on a big screen, and a suited Maduro with a yellow, blue and red presidential sash spoke surrounded by the military's top brass.

But just when the leftist leader was wrapping up by vowing OPEC member Venezuela's stricken economy would recover, his wife Cilia Flores scanned the sky, seemingly alarmed.

An explosion rocked the event close to the presidential stage, according to the government and three witnesses.

Maduro's wife recoiled, the camera shook, the state TV broadcast's audio was cut, and the camera abruptly panned out to hundreds of soldiers in sharp formation. But the image of martial lockstep was quickly shattered when a second drone hit a building nearby, as scores of soldiers scurried away before the live transmission ended and switched to reruns about the South American country's car census.

"This incident does make Maduro appear vulnerable but the truth remains that his circle has the power to crack down on enemies because they still control all the levers of power," said Raul Gallegos, associate director with the consultancy Control Risks.

"Whatever frailty comes across is compensated by the excuse Maduro now has to crack down on his internal enemies real or perceived," Gallegos said.

The incident failed to generate any wave of spontaneous support from traditional government backers, many of whom are reeling from hyperinflation, frequent water and power cuts, and food shortages.

Still, the government's adversaries warned of a possible crackdown after Maduro accused opponents of seeking to assassinate him with drones. Six people were detained as suspects, Venezuelan officials said on Sunday.

The suspects launched two drones laden with explosives over the outdoor rally, Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said. One was "diverted" by security forces while the second fell on its own and hit an apartment building, Reverol said.

Maduro initially blamed outgoing Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and residents of the U.S. state of Florida for the attack. Colombia's Foreign Ministry in response said it "emphatically rejected" Maduro's accusations.

Venezuelan cartoonist EDO published a drawing showing terrified soldiers fleeing under the tagline "Run Forrest, the Empire is invading us!", in allusion to the film 'Forrest Gump' where Tom Hanks' character jogs across the United States.

"The stampede of the military personnel, broadcast live, leaves the armed forces and the military top brass looking very bad," said Hebert Garcia Plaza, a former general and member of Maduro's administration who turned on the government.

Open calls for military intervention have grown after massive anti-government protests last year failed to unseat Maduro and he was re-elected in a May vote widely decried as a sham.

Scores of soldiers have been detained on accusations of conspiring against Maduro or deserting, as they too sometimes struggle to eat three square meals a day.

Last year, a rogue Venezuelan police officer hijacked a helicopter and fired at government buildings in what he said was an action against a dictator. The officer was hunted down and killed by Venezuelan forces.

But in public, the top brass remains fiercely loyal to Maduro, a 55-year-old former bus driver and union leader who unlike his predecessor Hugo Chavez does not hail from the military.

As the economic crisis has worsened and his popularity has slipped, Maduro has handed the military sway over the lucrative mining, oil, and food import sectors to help keep his grip on power.

A little-known group called the "National Movement of Soldiers in T-shirts" claimed responsibility for Saturday's explosion. The group, which describes itself as uniting members of "the resistance" to Maduro, said it had planned to fly two drones but that snipers shot them down.

Maduro can take some solace in that a half-dozen bodyguards dashed on stage to cover him with bulletproof panels. A voice was heard saying "let's go, my leader" right before he was rushed away.

"That drone was coming for me but there was a shield of love," Maduro said on Saturday night. "I am sure I will live for many more years."

          7.9. Panu Luukkonen: Heterogeneity of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) affects up to a quarter of the population in the Western countries. It is tightly associated with insulin resistance and the metabolic syndrome (’Metabolic NAFLD’) and increased risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and advanced liver disease.

Liver fat is composed of several types of lipids, such as metabolically inert triglycerides and insulin resistance-inducing ceramides and diacylglycerols. Common polymorphisms in genes such as PNPLA3, MBOAT7 and TM6SF2 increase the risk of advanced liver disease, but do not affect insulin resistance (’Genetic NAFLD’).

Studies I-III were performed to investigate whether a different composition of liver fat could explain this dissociation between the risk of liver disease and insulin resistance by determining the molecular lipid composition of liver biopsy samples of 125 patients undergoing bariatric surgery. In ’Metabolic NAFLD’, the liver was enriched in triglycerides, ceramides and diacylglycerols. In ’Genetic NAFLD’, the liver was also enriched in triglycerides, but not with ceramides or diacylglycerols. This marked difference in hepatic lipid composition could explain the dissociation between the risk of liver disease and insulin resistance in subtypes of NAFLD.

Liver fat can originate from dietary fat or adipose tissue lipolysis, or hepatic de novo lipogenesis (DNL). Study IV aimed to determine the effects of dietary macronutrient composition (saturated or unsaturated fat or sugar) on overfeeding-induced (1000 kcal/day) changes in liver fat content and insulin resistance in 38 subjects. Methods included magnetic resonance imaging, stable isotope infusions, hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamps as well as plasma lipidomics, adipose tissue transcriptomics and fecal microbiome analyses. Overfeeding of saturated fat for 3 weeks increased liver fat content more than unsaturated fat by stimulating adipose tissue lipolysis. Saturated fat also increased insulin resistance, circulating ceramides and fecal gram-negative bacteria. Overfeeding of sugar increased liver fat content by stimulating DNL. The diets had distinct effects on the adipose tissue transcriptome. In conclusion, the magnitude and mechanisms underlying overfeeding-induced changes in liver fat content and insulin resistance depend on the macronutrient composition of the diet. Overfeeding of saturated fat was metabolically more harmful for the liver as compared to unsaturated fat or sugar.

In conclusion, this series of studies demonstrated that NAFLD is a heterogenous disease. Both the common genetic polymorphisms and the macronutrient composition of the diet have a marked effect on hepatic lipid metabolism and the resulting phenotype.

          Newspaper racks still exist, so Jose Leal owes me $100      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Newspaper Rack

Ten years is a long time.

In 2008, audiences were gushing over The Dark Knight and dissing Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The iPhone was only a year old and people were still in love with their Flip video cameras. MySpace was still a popular social network. Passengers carried portable DVD players onto their flights. Justin Long and John Hodgman were still cranking out those Mac vs. PC commercials. (Their roles would be reversed today.) Everyone experienced Britney Spears’s meltdown, Tina Fey was parodying Sarah Palin on SNL, we lost Tim Russert (and Meet the Press has never been the same), and digital picture frames were products at stores like CompUSA.

It was also a heady year for all things digital, with irrational exuberance running high.

It was also the year I made a bet with Jose Leal.

The wager was simple. If 10 years later I could still buy a newspaper from a newspaper rack on a street corner, Jose would pay me $100. If I couldn’t, I’d pay $100 to Jose.

At the time, in a blog post, I prognosticated that newspapers would adapt to the changes that were the cause of their struggles. “Print newspapers in 10 years won’t much resemble a newspaper today,” I wrote. “My guess is that their focus will be hyperlocal.”

Newspaper racks are thriving

I was wrong about that, but I wasn’t wrong that newspaper racks would continue to serve up freshly printed news, features, sports, comics, movie times, and what-have-you.

As an overall category, printed newspapers continues to decline as people get more accustomed to getting news on their phones and tablets. In 2017, weekday print circulation dropped 11% over the year before and Sunday circulation fell 10%.

Those numbers, however, are deceiving if not taken in context. As of two years ago, newspapers reached 69% of the U.S. population each month, with 81% reading the print format, which is still the most popular format for reading newspapers. Fifty-one percent read only print. The New York Times has about 4 million subscribers, a quarter of whom still get the Grey Lady in print.

The predicted death of print at large also failed to materialize. In fact, print is experiencing something of a resurgence. The publishing industry expected ebooks to capture half of all book sales. Instead, ebook sales topped out at about 25% and then began to slide. Ebook sales fell 10% in 2017 to just 19% of all book sales.

A number of factors account for the failure of ebooks to become the dominant book format, including publishers charging too much for them. But research has found (for example) that children—who were supposed to be the vanguard of the new era of all things digital—prefer to read books on paper over screens. In fact, one study found, eReading devices can actually inhibit reading among children. The study also found that the more devices a child had access to, the less they read overall.

Print is a growth industry

It’s not just books. 2017 was the best year ever for sales of the board game, “Magic: The Gathering.” There are game shops where you can wander in and see players seated at long tables, engrossed in play not on computer screens, but with paper cards. My brother’s kids are hooked on another card-based board game, Settlers of Catan. Video games are unquestionably popular, but they haven’t replaced paper-based gaming. As with almost all new technologies, digital hasn’t killed print. Print adapted.

There is no shortage of brochures. Business cards are still (unimaginably) a thing. In fact, print sales overall in 2017 were up 1.5% over 2016. You read that right: Print is on the rise.

To put it bluntly, print wasn’t just the least-best option that we used while waiting for digital to come along. Print has an important place among types of media

Printed newspapers, though, unquestionably have a tough road ahead. They can’t be anywhere near as current as a news site or app. You can’t click through from an article to related resources, watch a related video, or enlarge a photo. Yet I still believe a print newspaper has value, mainly in the serendipity of discovery. If a print newspaper has original content that is relevant and interesting, readers will anticipate turning the page to find something new and unexpected, something they never in a million years would have clicked on.

Many newspaper racks

Last March, New York Times technology reporter Farhad Manjoo—a voracious consumer of news via social media—experimented for two months, getting his news only from print newspapers: the Times (his employer), the San Francisco Chronicle (his home-town paper), The Wall Street Journal, and the Economist (it’s a magazine but it calls itself a newspaper). “It has been life changing,” Manjoo wrote. “Turning off the buzzing breaking-news machine I carry in my pocket was like unshackling myself from a monster who had me on speed dial, always ready to break into my day with half-baked bulletins. “

Manjoo also discovered the “blessing” of the newspaper: “I was getting news a day old, but in the delay between when the news happened and when it showed up on my front door, hundreds of experienced professionals had done the hard work for me. Now I was left with the simple, disconnected and ritualistic experience of reading the news, mostly free from the cognitive load of wondering whether the thing I was reading was possibly a blatant lie.”

Why Jose thought newspaper would die

Jose’s rationale for believing print newspapers were doomed had their origins in other issues. He firmly believed that citizen journalism would replace (rather than augment) professional reporting. I believe in citizen journalism but don’t believe for a minute that untrained people in their spare time will be able to accomplish the kind of reporting done by dogged professionals with their training, interview and research skills, and connections who spend their time doing nothing else.

Jose also figured opposition to the “rape of our forests” would spell the end of print newspapers, but paper companies like Weyerhauser tend massive forests, part of replanting programs that contribute to the wood harvested each year from U.S. forests—for all purposes, not just print—amounting to less than annual forest growth. Print accounts for only about 36% of all timber harvested in America. The paper industry is using recycled paper for 39% of its fiber needs.

In other words, print is pretty much a sustainable enterprise.

Finally, as he suggested in a July 18, 2008 blog post, Jose figured that the loss of advertising revenue would kill the industry. Despite newspapers losing all-important classified revenue to Craig’s List and eBay, digital subscriptions, native advertising, and display advertising have helped keep the industry afloat and, in some cases (like the “failing” New York Times) thriving.

Because Jose was wrong in his predictions, and because print not only remains popular but is finding new footholds, I can still buy a newspaper from a newspaper rack on the street. In fact, the photos sprinkled through this post are of the racks I pass on my walk to work, from the Montgomery Street BART station (which is actually on Market Street) to my office on Third and King Streets in San Francisco. And these are the racks that are only on the one side of the street I walked on today.

Note the rack with digital signage built in. Print newspapers can generate revenue with digital advertising. (Also, I’m very happy to include beer in this post.)

So here’s my message to Jose:

I can take payment using PayPal, Venmo, or Zelle. Let me know which you prefer.

          Shark, Weak: Toothless 'The Meg' Snatches Mediocrity From The Jaws Of Defeat       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Uneasy lies the wrist that wears the big diver's watch, but Jason Statham never looks especially perturbed in The Meg, an agreeably daft if disappointingly bloodless sea creature-feature from the auteur who brought you Three Ninjas and Phenomenon — the film that asked us to imagine, What if John Travolta were smart?

Of all the thrillers made about tender, juicy humans splashing away from ravenous giant sharks, The Meg is undeniably the most recent. It is to Jaws what Skyscraper was was Die Hard: A somewhat self-aware, mildly sci-fi tinged, numbingly unimaginative watering down (no pun) of a genre landmark, relocated to Asia and aimed squarely at the world's largest movie market: China. It's not A-okay, but it's C-okay. Orson Welles purportedly observed that making a bad movie takes just as much work as making a good one. Halfway through The Meg, I found myself wondering if making a movie that is neither bad nor good is the easiest option of all.

And yet The Meg, freely adapted from a 21-year-old "novel of deep terror" by Steve Alten, is still a more diverting entertainment than Skyscraper, for reasons I shall elucidate in ascending order of relevance.

  1. "Are you saying we've opened up a superhighway for giant sharks?" is not an extraordinary line of dialogue from this film, but a typical one.
  2. The Meg was largely filmed in real, you can-even-go-swimming-in-it water, rather than in front of a green screen, and computer-animated sharks are more fun to look at than computer-animated flames.
  3. Statham—a former competitive diver, did you know, and easily the most talented chrome-dome involved in the Fast & Furious series—is a more agile and rakish action hero than Skyscraper's Dwayne Johnson, who is so prolific and yet so unwilling to show any trace of unlikeability or indecision onscreen that the political career The Rock is potentially cooking may already have begun.

Like Skyscraper, this movie opens with a pointless prologue set long before the main story, wherein its hero — deep sea frogman Jonas Taylor (Statham) — suffers a traumatic loss that costs him his career. (People died during an underwater debacle Taylor blamed on a mysterious sea monster, which gets him blackballed as a coward and crazy to boot.)

Fast forward five years, when a bunch of of oceanographers outfitted in a Bond-villain-worthy floating laboratory paid for by Rainn Wilson's Elon Musk-like figure is preparing an experiment: They intend to prove that a part of the ocean floor 200 miles off the Chinese coast is in fact merely a cold layer of extremely scientific exposition, leading to an even deeper ocean utterly unknown to science. Their expeditionary sub is piloted by Sharon Stone lookalike Jessica McNamee, an actor two decades younger than Statham who is nevertheless playing Jonas' ex-wife because the writers have seen The Abyss, too. Anyway, when that sub gets attacked and stranded miles beneath the sea, the last words McNamee manages to radio to the surface are "Jonas was right!"

So now company men Winston Chao and Cliff Curtis have to lure Jonas back to confront his white whale, which is is technically a white shark. He may have spent the last half-decade lying drunk on a beach in Thailand (not hyperbole; the movie makes clear that this has been his focus), but he's the only man for the job!

Once all that table-setting is done, director John (National Treasure, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Cool Runnings) Turtletaub ... just keeps on setting the table. There's an adorable moppet (Sophia Cai) who takes an instant liking to Jonas, as does her hot scientist mom (Bingbing Li), who attempts to rescue the stranded sub herself before Jonas shows her how it's done. There's a black engineer (Page Kennedy) who keeps cracking jokes about how terrified he is. (1999's Deep Blue Sea, which confronted the threat of super-intelligent giant sharks, cast LL Cool J in this part. So The Meg isn't even the first giant shark flick to "satirize" this tired trope by merely propagating it.)

One casting bright spot is Ruby Rose, who plays a tough-as-nails ... well, exactly what her job is on this ocean laboratory is of less consequence than the fact that her name is Jaxx. Is any screenwriter worth his WGA card going to waste a moniker like "Jaxx" on a helpless damsel? Or someone who accepts a job in the middle of the ocean while concealing the fact she can't swim? No way, Bro.

The Meg's literary source spawned a half-dozen sequel novels. One point in this movie's favor is that it's generous complement of false endings make it feel less like one movie than like a movie followed by two quickie follow-ups, and all in under two hours. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, it's still not safe.

Người nhái Đài Loan tập luyện ban đêm tại Cao Hùng, 23/07/2018.
(Asia Times) – Đài Loan tăng ngân sách sản xuất tàu ngầm để chống Trung Quốc

Nữ tổng thống Đài Loan Thái Anh Văn hôm qua 08/08/2018 hứa sẽ chi thêm 2,4 tỉ đô la, tương đương hơn 1/5 ngân sách quốc phòng trong năm tới, để tự sản xuất vũ khí. Đặc biệt là việc chế tạo và nâng cấp tàu ngầm tấn công để tăng cường năng lực Hải quân, đối phó với nguy cơ bị Trung Quốc xâm lược.

Hồi tháng Tư, Washington đã cho phép xuất khẩu các công nghệ cao liên quan đến tàu ngầm cho Đài Loan, bất chấp sự phản đối của Bắc Kinh.

Okay, Trump isn't really going to be pee-boarding anyone (darn it), but just because a story isn't true is no reason not to report it.  At least, in 2017 that seems to be the prevailing journalistic philosophy after a number of news outlets, with varying degrees of enthusiasm and hyperbole, published reports that the Russians were ready to blackmail Donald Trump with secret videos of the billionaire in a Moscow hotel room, paying prostitutes to perform a "golden showers" scenario (peeing) on a bed once used by Barack and Michelle Obama.

The only problem is that there's no evidence whatsoever that this ever happened. None. It's complete and utter claptrap, and less believable than the rumor that the Russians have video of the night the Obamas used that hotel room and someone ended up getting a "dirty Sanchez." (If you don't know the term, for the love of all that's holy don't look it up.  Let's just say it's a sexual act invented by liberals who really, really deserve to be turned into pillars of salt.)

At a press conference on Wednesday, Trump quickly dismissed the preposterous tale - and subsequently refused to take questions from a CNN reporter because that organization was one of the purveyors of this "fake news." Score one for The Donald!

The so-called "Trump Blackmail" dossier has apparently been kicking around for months, with many people in government and media aware of its existence, but unable to do anything with it since none of the accusations held up to scrutiny. Which is frequently the case when a story is complete and utter bullcrap.

Still, the fictitious scandal developed a life of its own behind closed doors. If we're getting the story right (which seems quaint, doesn't it?), the dossier found its way into the hands of John McCain who was so stunned by the scatological accusations that he spat out the acorns he'd been storing in his cheeks for winter.

McCain then gave the report to FBI Director (and unindicted Hillary co-conspirator) James Comey, who - instead of burning the report and suggesting that McCain check into a 12-step program -  apparently slipped the information to perennial lunatic Harry Reid, who demanded the allegations be made public to derail Trump's run to the White House. This is, of course, the same Harry Reid who gleefully boasts about lying his ass off regarding Mitt Romney's taxes as an act of political sabotage.

(And on a side note, Harry, absolutely no one believes your story of getting your face battered and bruised by an exercise rubber band gone rogue. Rather, we strongly suspect that person or persons unknown beat the living tar out of you, then disappeared into the shadows before we could offer to buy them several rounds of drinks.)

Passed around as indiscriminately as Bill Clinton's DNA, the report eventually found it's way to the NBC-affiliated "news" website Buzzfeed (so named because Buttfeed was apparently already taken) which printed every scurrilous word online - kicking off a massive "me too" campaign of other alleged news organization linking to the story without even pretending to fact-check.

As alleged actress Meryl Streep said only days ago, "Disrespect invites disrespect" and "when the powerful use their positions to bully, we all lose. We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage."

So far, the real outrages seem to be generated by a press which has deserted anything remotely like principle.

Because "Mele Kalikimaka" is so difficult to pronounce
The left-leaning media is still hyperventilating about Russian interference with our election, going so far in some cases as to declare that we are no longer a free country and that Vladimir "Nice Pecs" Putin has successfully pulled off a massive coup d'etat. Apparently, his evil goal is to destroy us from within by facilitating the appointment of brain surgeons to cabinet positions.

All of which would seem considerably more like a terrifying existential crisis if Barack Obama cared enough to have skipped his annual bajillion-dollar Christmas getaway to the five-star environs of Hawaii. But there he is again, thousands of miles from the Oval Office - golfing, gnawing shave ice, eschewing any traditional symbols of Christmas or Christianity entirely, and (understandably) avoiding contact with family members as much as possible...

It's all the more impressive considering her deep sense of hopelessness.
Frankly, we're so sick of the first family and their wretched excesses that we pulled these cartoons out of the vault and can't really work up any enthusiasm about coming up with fresh ways to disparage them today. We're tired, we detest them, and we just want them gone.

Not that it's a bad start having them on Oahu. Which, by wild coincidence, is what we'll be shouting when they're escorted (hopefully forcefully) out of the White House on January 20th.

BONUS: A RANDOM HOLIDAY THOUGHT...
...to help us fill out the page at least a little more.
Seriously, why isn't PETA all over this?!
ADDITIONAL BONUS: YEP, IT'S MONDAY
Unlike sunny, expensive Oahu, it got darned cold in north Texas last night...and we've discovered that the pipes have frozen in one of the bathrooms. We've now got a heat lamp on the exterior wall, and a battery of space heaters and hair dryers blowing on the interior pipes (the area with the actual blockage can't be reached directly).

There is also a real sense of suspense, wondering if - at any moment - our bathroom faucet will simply return to normal operations...or we'll discover that a ruptured pipe is filling the walls of our home with water just in time for a randomly selected plumber to earn enough money for all of his Christmas shopping. And a Hawaiian vacation.

SO STILTON, HOW'S YOUR OBAMACARE DOING?
Thank you for asking. Healthcare.gov finally conceded my imaginary earning status for 2017 so that I could select another crappy, overpriced HMO plan - which I did.

And I assume all of that went smoothly, because last week I received six - count 'em - six new ID cards from Blue Cross. Three for me, and three for Mrs. Jarlsberg who isn't on the policy anymore.  Then on Saturday, I received two more ID's, both of which are in my name but showing different policy numbers.  So there's at least some chance that I now have 8 insurance policies.

None of which stopped Healthcare.gov from sending me daily reminders that I was not insured and needed to hurry to beat the cutoff deadline. Which they've now extended since the website (for the umpteenth time) failed to keep up with the traffic.

They've also let me know that I can pay my multiple insurance policies by giving them my banking information and letting their crack computers siphon money whenever they feel like it.  I'd sooner hand over my information to a Nigerian prince who wants to share his fortune.

(Noon Update: I swear on all that's Holy that I just got two more ID cards in today's mail.)

Bonjour à tous. ça fait longtemps que je n'ai pas posté et j'en profite maintenant qu'on a pu voir les effets de l'arrêt de Panini en kiosque. Vivant dans la 2ème ville de France, je n'ai pu trouver mes revues presse qu'en Relay en gare ferroviaire et chez Auchan. Franchement je suis hyper déçu de Panini et je n'ose imaginer le désarroi des gens qui habitent à la campagne. Et encore les quantités étaient faibles et je n'ai trouvé que Deadpool et Spiderman (et Xmen mais j'ai décidé d'arrêter ^^) . Conclusion: je doute fortement de la viabilité de cette solution et je souhaite à Panini des ventes misérables afin de les inciter à revenir à l'ancien système :p

本文提要:

  • 开箱
  • 装配
  • 温度及五款市面最顶级的硅脂测试
  • 傲腾实际应用上详细解读
  • 跑分什么的最讨厌了

前言:

其实之前笔者没有怎么玩ITX,一直都在MATX和ATX之间徘徊,自从上次给侄女买了海皇戟3之后就对ITX瞬间中毒。娇小的身躯里面蕴含着巨大的能量,这种反差感让我一时语塞,也许这是ITX所带来的魅力之一?追求极限性能的我也确定了这次的装机思路——性能优先,在最大性能的情况下再去考虑机箱选择。CPU自然是INTEL刚出的i7纪念版8086K,官超5G的体质也说明了至少是牙膏厂帮你挑好了体质。也许会有人问为什么不选择i9平台,不是要求最强吗?其实我也不是没考虑过,但是在综合散热规格和i9因为Mesh高延时影响,实际游戏体验可能是不如8086K的,最终选择的是8086K。显卡方面没得说自然是选择了目前最强的金色核弹TITAN V。
在机箱选择上是我纠结了最久的,看了许多量产/非量产的itx机箱,发现我好像对于“小方块”形状的机箱并没有什么感觉,反而小乌鸦3和联力PC-O5的外观和结构是我钟意的类型。至于为什么选择了小乌鸦3而没用选择联力PC-O5各位看官别着急,后面我会说。
所以基本上配置也就确定下来了:

CPU:Intel i7-8086K OC5G
主板:微星MSI Z370I GAMING PRO CARBON
显卡:NVIDIA TITAN V
内存:金士顿Kingston Predator RGB 8*2G
散热:快睿 C1风扇:利民TY-143 and 大镰刀KF120*2
固态:Intel 800P 118G + 镁光 1100 2T 
SATA机箱:银欣小乌鸦3
电源:银欣SX700-LPT
定制线:YY定制
硅脂:利民TF8


Intel i7-8086K包装上和8700K的软外壳不同,采用的是硬质外壳包装,这样才能体现与众不同不是?



侧面包装镜面?雾面?反正都是一个东西。


其实对于这次8086K实际上就是官方卖体质,再来个纪念版称号岂不是美滋滋,也确实让超频玩家期待了下。


其实对于这次8086K实际上就是官方卖体质,再来个纪念版称号岂不是美滋滋,也确实让超频玩家期待了下。


相比8700K,这次纪念版多了一张卡片,意思就是感谢支持Intel充值信仰什么的。


盒子里基本就这些东西了,至少在储存收藏上硬质纸壳确实比软壳方便存储。


生产周期为L806D959的8086K,也算雕周期了,蛮期待体制的。


精准的德国工艺……呸呸,马来工艺!


选择了下压散热还想超频5G,开盖是必须的,我并没有采用国产开盖器,这东西也是一分钱一分货,再加上还有合盖功能也方便不少。




开盖器内部,做工没的说,看着都爽。


为了尽可能降低温度,笔者可谓想尽了办法,就连CPU顶盖也考虑进去了,使用的是Rockit的全CNC纯铜盖。可能你们会很好奇,原装顶盖不就是纯铜的吗为什么还要换这个?最简单的,接触面积比原装顶盖大,表面更平整,而且根据朋友实测下来也确实低了小几度。


我不太推荐普通玩家自己开盖,毕竟开盖无保。


开盖的过程是让人值得回味的,在开的那一瞬间就听到“咔”的一声,心里特别满足。



开盖成功!白色的渣渣硅脂!


Rockit铜盖看上去不是那么平整,但实际上CNC切出来相比原装铜盖是更非常光滑平整的。同时也可以看到接触面积上确实比原装铜盖大了一圈。


Rockit的铜盖自带了合盖用的合盖器


因为微星MSI Z370I只有一块M.2接口,存储上我选择的800P 118G+镁光1100 2T,为什么这样选择而不是直接970RPO的原因也很简单,800P作为加速盘给镁光1100加速实际上4K性能相对于三星流的NVME是爆表的,而4K性能我相信各位看官老爷都知道是有多重要。


蓝色PCB,小小一块口香糖大小的800P,118G作为CACHE完全是富余的不能再富余了,即使是58G版本的日常也绝对是绰绰有余。


PCB本体看着给人的感觉非常不错,800P相对于傲腾内存的优势不仅仅是58G/118G和32G的区别,在读写速度上也是一个天一个地。


上图为PCB上的电容,其实对于傲腾这个东西是有人夸有人贬,很不幸我是属于夸的一类人。


镁光1100 2T SATA,带断电保护,性价比非常高。


800P给镁光1100进行加速,实际体验到的可能就是2T大小的800P,这才是傲腾的价值所在,具体使用体验上在文章后会有详细说明。


主板采用微星MSI Z370I GAMING PRO CARBON,毫不客气的说这就是Z370中的黑马一匹!


说起来微星这块板子也是在最近才开始火起来的,超频神器。


包装侧面印有主板信息,包括SN什么的,就不打码了。


虽说是ITX主板,但是配件上一个都不少。


小小一块主板蕴含了巨大的超频潜力。


整体设计上没的说,官方宣称的钛金/黑化电容。


硕大INTEL WIFI AC模块,支持2.4G/5G两种频段,非常实用的一个小玩意儿。


同时也支持USB 3.1 TYPE-C 接口。


撕膜的快感不言而喻!


如果我有钱我想天天撕膜!






微星MSI Z370I各处细节都处理不错,非常值得购买的一块好主板。


正面布满了各种原件,唯一的M.2接口在主板背面。


拿到主板第一件事就是将800P装上。


金色核弹来临,TITAN V和以往黑色外观不同这次大胆采用了“土豪金”配色,毕竟是“金色品质”的装备。


膜都还没撕下来,整体外观除了TITAN V那个LOGO也没什么值得说的,反正都一样哈哈哈。


采用的涡轮散热在实际使用过程中略显乏力。


进风口也印有NVIDIA LOGO。


和1080TI不同并没有采用发光LOGO,取而代之的是无光TITAN标,在光线的反射下发出阵阵金光,亮瞎了我的眼睛。


TITAN V在手,马德凯喂奶灯在旁,突然感觉好满足了呢!


TDP设计依然是250W,按照老黄的尿性自然也是8+6P,完全足够了。


有句话不知道当讲不当讲!其实我更喜欢VAGA FE的外观……


金手指干净的很捏~


电源选择上我也纠结了蛮久,其实8086K超频+TITAN V一共加起来满载也就400多W,我是选择SF600呢还是图上这个SX700呢?想了想毕竟电源这东西不嫌容量大,就怕容量小,再加上白金效能,最终还是选择了SFX-L规格的SX700。


银欣在国内不温不火其实很大原因不是在于产品本身,至少电源上也算一流品质了,属于放心购买类型。


SX700给我的整体印象很低调的一个感觉,做工精致度上也达到了我心中的要求。


看着很爽有木有?


700W足额再加白金效能的SFX-L电源足以应付太多情景下的使用了。


模组电源设计,拥有一个主板24PIN、PCIE8PIN*2、CPU8PIN、和4个SATA6PIN供电口设计。


尾部蜂巢型孔对散热有极大帮助。


因为散热器高度限制,采用了金士顿新品,红外控制RGB的内存条,特挑颗粒。


2933Mhz频率,看评测AMD平台上可以超到3866,有点恐怖。


包装上并没有太大亮点。


整体做工很精致,这也是金士顿优势之一。


HyperX系列在这两年因为外设的原因大放光芒,也许你很难理解为什么一个内存品牌会在外设行业占有巨大占用率。但是至少外设上,你可以去试试,你就知道为什么了。


顶部是采用红外设计的柔光型RGB灯光,效果一点都不输于其他竞品,顶部设计我给90分!


线材采用老朋友YY定制的镀银线,要说定制线我能相信哪家?只有YY了吧。


采用的JMT端子。


YY家的品质我想就不用多说辣~免得说是广告哈哈。


散热器选择上我考虑过很久,最早是选择的AXP-200,因为AXP-200是针对老平台设计,在配合这次选择的微星Z370I主板上出现了兼容问题,此时我突然想到快睿不是还有C1吗?同样的6热管设计,更好的平台兼容性更漂亮的外观以及更好的性能,让我立马下单。


快睿自带的是一块14cm*13mm的薄扇,在薄扇里面性能也算数一数二了。


快睿最不用担心的是什么?没错就是外观!不管是风扇还是散热器本体,快睿的外观总是十分优秀的。


自带的风扇转速1300,同时背面印有编号。


再来说说散热器本体,白色+银色的设计非常富有时尚感和设计感,同时6热管也最化大了散热性能,应该算最强下压了吧?


散热片工整,间距均衡,密度较密。


白色包围为整体散热器提升了大量的科技元素。


散热器+风扇总体高度为74mm,对于小乌鸦83mm的限高绰绰有余。


散热器底座的热处理后的彩虹效果,也算是快睿精湛做工的体现。


换个角度看同样也能看到,并且是规则散射形状。


我想说散热器赠送的螺丝刀特别精致……我特别喜欢……


螺丝刀前面印有快睿LOGO。




哈哈哈小袋子里还有个注册用的卡片,散热器搞的这么豪华干嘛哈哈哈。



装机:


小乌鸦3在结构上其实没的说,非常成熟的一个结构设计。


先将主板转接板拆下,准备先装电源。


主板转接板拆下后可以看到随机箱赠送了薄扇用于机箱进气,同时右下方是机箱所需要用到的线材。


一大饼线材看着有点头疼,不过相比其他机箱也不算多的啦。还有更多的机箱有这更多的线材看着头疼。


机箱配件螺丝盒放在电源仓内。




因为电源仓位置设计在右上方,机箱自带了一个电源转接线。


先将电源仓从机箱上拆下。


因为小乌鸦3是支持ATX电源设计,所以SFX电源上上去会有空余,我没选择ATX电源是因为这样更利于走线。


机箱自带的薄扇,我准备都替换成12cm的常规风扇,也就是后面的大镰刀KF120。


从以前的主机上拆下的KF120。


哦对了~还赠送了3块防尘网~


银欣的防尘网也是防尘网中的翘楚,精细度非常高。


将防尘网和两个KF120固定在机箱上。


装机的一小步!小钢炮的一大步!


机箱暂时放在一边,再来研究散热器扣具和如何安装再主板上。


三个槽为分别对应2011、115X、775平台


选择B槽115X平台将散热器扣具装主板上。


螺丝固定上。




主板CPU底座,针脚工整。


将换了顶盖的CPU装上。


再将内存和电源线插上,这样看金士顿这条子真的很好看有木有。




金士顿这次的RGB内存条至少在外观上是没得讲的确实漂亮。


最早的想法是图上这种装法,但实际操作过程中发现散热器和右侧电源仓冲突,遂放弃


最后选择的将热管朝内存放向进行安装。


将散热器换了个方向后再将白色包围取下才将散热器装上,和机箱不冲突。


所有线材插上后将散热器装上,由于这样装散热器原装14cm风扇就无法装上,遂换了12CM标准扇来吹散热器。


硬盘位在显卡转接板上,2个2.5硬盘位,将镁光1100装上并插上线。


机箱还自带了个PCIE延长卡需要装上,不然是无法插上转接板的哦。


装上PCIE延长卡蔡能将显卡插在转接板上。


机箱还附带赠送了显卡支架?没错这就是显卡支架!一个薄一个厚两种规格。


差点忘记了还有机箱自带的RGB控制器。


还是磁吸式的hhhhhhh,非常方便固定。


大功告成,镀银线确实漂亮!


毕竟镀银线也算小机箱福音了。



小乌鸦3的外观是真漂亮,我就好这口了。


正面2个USB接口和开机键重启键。


相对于前两代小乌鸦,小乌鸦3增加了RGB灯和更时尚的设计。




不知道为什么就对这种扁长的机箱产生了好感。


另一侧的3个通风口,小乌鸦3不管在CPU还是显卡都拥有单独的进出风口,这也是为什么我没选择联力PC-O5的原因。


同时电源并不是紧贴机箱侧板,这样可以加大空气的流动性。


显卡进风口有2个12CM常规扇保证了足够的进风。


其实最后我并没有选择KF120上在散热器上的方案,因为机箱和散热器正好吻合,我后来直接将TY-143装在机箱上正好接触到散热器,还能吹到内存,还可以用14CM规格12孔位的风扇。简直完美!!


橘红色的风扇加上黑色的机箱其实很好看的!


主板附赠的WIFI天线也是磁吸式,正好可以吸在机箱侧盖上显得不是那么特别难看吧!



温度和硅脂比较:

装机装的差不多了,下面我来具体说说散热,一个下压式散热是否能够压住双5G的8086呢?开盖已经开了,铜盖也换了,散热器也确定了,接下来是我想特别说的硅脂。


手里有不少硅脂,这里选择几个比较有代表性的,分别是利民刚出的TF8,和人气王MX4,以及我之前最爱用的GCE,后面两管是EK自带硅脂和传说中的暴力熊。那么具体怎么样?




单纯从物理性上来说,五款硅脂都是很好涂的那类类型,不像ICD7,简直是反人类中的反人类!


EK这个硅脂不知道为什么特别稀,一挤出来就瘫在板子上。


GCE的易用性是我在用了TF8以前觉得最好的。


到利民新出的TF8,号称13.8的导热,粘稠度十分适中,究竟是不是有宣称那样神奇?来看看结果。


因为篇幅较长了,在这里我就不放测试过程了,结果我直接贴在图上。再来说说测试条件,8086K开盖/1.28v/双5G/风扇固定1500转/FPU进行测试,果然利民TF8没让我失望,是五款里面温度最低的,温度稳定后平均温度83.6度;其次是我之前最爱的GCE,温度85.4度;暴力熊和GCE属于一个水平,平均温度85.7度,人气王MX4平均温度比TF8高了差不多4度,为87.3度;五款里面最差的是EK的硅脂,温度88.5度。



关于傲腾:


写到这其实差不多可以结束的直接写性能上的东西,但是我还是想单独来说说傲腾800P的事,因为之前我说了很多人对于奥腾这东西是有贬有赞,以及我为什么这次要用800P?800P某宝销量一直不高,看评论大部分用户都是把800P当单盘使用,实际上800P定位和傲腾内存一样,可以通过Intel傲腾驱动进行对硬盘加速(至于900P我还没试,希望可以)。而且800P 58G/118G的规格拿来当CACHE也是和傲腾16G/32G的规格更能全方位满足应用需求,而且800P在速度上提升相比傲腾内存是巨大的。

众所周知在目前普遍2000M+的顺序读写参数下,4K随机读写的速度相对顺序读写提升对整个系统运行提升是大的多的,就算是三星970PRO随机读写也仅仅只有50M左右,这时候傲腾便体现出来了。实际运用上,傲腾通过算法可以将应用所需数据提前读取出来当CACHE进行读取,并且因为自身带有优化功能,能不停的将常用软件所需文件提前读取到傲腾中进行运用。也就是越用越快,最终达到800P的正常水平。具体应用上比如游戏,当你打开游戏时傲腾可能提前将游戏文件不停的缓存到傲腾里面,在你使用的时候再进行调用达到加速效果,这就是最简单的一个应用层面。如果非要说傲腾的劣势,那就是新鲜素材读取上可能因为无法预先判断而无法进行缓存,跑的是被加速盘的固定速度,实际上这类情况在除了某些特定职业下是不会经常出现的。那么我想解决这个问题怎么解决?

我没有选择HDD盘进行加速,而是选择了一块大容量SATA SSD进行加速,这样即使出现了上面说很少遇到的新素材读取上也不会因为HDD速度限制明显感觉到瓶颈,即使出现了也会跑普通SATA SSD的速度,让我不会太明显感觉到这种情况出现时导致的缓慢。所以综合上来说作为电竞小钢炮或者日常小钢炮,只要不会经常涉及到每天都有新素材需要读取(即使出现,再读取一次后素材也会保留在CACHE里),傲腾的加速效果是非常明显的。

和混合硬盘不同,傲腾的优势在于能通过驱动记录学习预判,让自己更“聪明”,甚至在开机的那时候就将你需要的数据自动加载进去(猜测),再加上爆表的4K随机读取数据,达到深度加速效果。这里先放几张傲腾驱动安装流程图:


傲腾驱动可以识别118G的800P


点击安装提示会擦除数据






最底部是读条进程,过程较慢,但值得等待


读条完毕后需要重启


重启后提示成功启用,在安装过程中我并没有进BIOS修改任何相关设置。


可以通过驱动看到,傲腾会自我优化。


这里也能看到本机硬盘列表。




相对于傲腾内存,顺序读取速度提升巨大,相比以前傲腾内存,提升量在日常使用过程中也有十分有用的,同时4K会到140MB/s,这点是三星无法媲美的,Intel的黑科技。我对于傲腾这东西,是非常看好。也许顺序读写速度并没有其他nvme那么好看,但是也绝对够用,相反影响实际体验的4K顺序读写提升相当大,要知道镁光1100 4K读取只有20MB/s左右。傲腾800P+大容量SATA SSD的搭配,在实际使用体验是绝对优于常规NVME的。当然因为800P大容量的缘故也完全可以搭配大容量HDD盘,实际使用后差距也不大,瓶颈也可能仅仅只是新素材读取上。



最后,说说性能测试:


还是通过跑3DMARK来测试综合性能。


最终FSE测试成绩为17351,其中TITAN V的风冷下显卡分跑到了18541分。


单卡综合成绩一不小心进入了3DMARK榜内,全球第27名。


如果为了冲分,换个高分盘+再超下CPU,80W不是问题吧。


默认风扇当然是没法看的,各种降频,这里测试我将显卡拉到了100%转速,直升机直接起飞!4000转的情况下超频后满载71度。如果不拉风扇不超频那么可能频率只有1600MHz不到。


CPU体质还不错,1.136v 5G开机,算个大雕了吧?


5.4G开机电压1.376


5.5G开机电压就要高不少了,直接达到了1.472V,也许是我没设置好呢hhhh


换了根高频条进行测试,稳定在4500Mhz c17 17 17 37。


显卡不拉风扇不超频的情况下,4K幽灵行动荒野平均帧为37.86FPS


超频后再拉风扇转速提升非常明显,平均帧达到了41.8。




我是十分喜欢小乌鸦3的外观,虽然14L体质可能还是有点大,如果不是特别喜欢这类结构的机箱,我相信换成RS01等10L左右的机箱会更小,谁让我喜欢小乌鸦3呢不是?吃鸡什么的我就不测试了,没啥压力的东西是吧?文章最后,感谢各位看官姥爷耐心观看,图片有点多,我也没放具体其他测试结果了,我相信毋须过多测试图了,5G测试结果网上也太多太多,我码字码了一天了也累了,你们看的也辛苦了!这可能是目前最强的电竞小钢炮吧?

          Extreme Drama: The Life And Music Of Richard Wagner      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Richard Wagner was, and still is today, arguably the most controversial figure in classical music. A self-appointed deity and hyperdriven genius, Wagner is often considered the ultimate megalomaniac. He dreamed up and achieved a single-minded plan to change the course of classical music history. With the 200th anniversary of Wagner's birth approaching on May 22, musicians and music lovers worldwide will explore not only his operas, but also his extreme politics and egotistical worldview — in the process barely scratching the surface of this complex man. For Wagner, music is drama — a drama of extremes. He created a new, multidimensional form of expression through a mix of music, drama and poetry that changed forever how the world thought about and experienced opera. Wagner's magnum opus, a 16-hour series of four operas called The Ring of the Nibelungen — or Ring cycle for short — was inspired by Norse sagas. Through the cycle, Wagner set out to depict nothing less than the creation and

What Does Nintendo's Shutdown Of ROM-Sharing Sites Mean For Video Game Preservation? [Nintendo Life] "The recent news that Nintendo is taking legal action against two sites which illegally distributed ROMs has been met with an overwhelmingly positive response, and rightly so. The individuals sharing these files online care little for the intellectual property rights of the developers who slave away to make the games we get hours of enjoyment out of, and instead leverage the growing interest in retro gaming purely to plaster their sites with garish advertisements for mail-order girlfriends and other dubious businesses. Nintendo – a company traditionally very protective of its IP – has struck a blow which will hopefully have long-term ramifications for the entire industry."

• Nintendo Suing Pirate Websites For Millions [Kotaku]
"On July 19, Nintendo filed suit in an Arizona Federal Court against the operator of two popular retro gaming sites, which had been hosting ROMS of some of the company's most famous games. The suit alleges that the two sites, LoveROMS.com and LoveRETRO.co—both owned and operated by Jacob Mathias—are "built almost entirely on the brazen and mass-scale infringement of Nintendo's intellectual property rights." "In addition to Nintendo's video games", the suit says, "Defendants reproduce, distribute, and publicly perform a vast library of Nintendo's other copyrighted works on and through the LoveROMs and LoveRETRO websites, including the proprietary BIOS software for several of Nintendo's video game systems and thousands of Nintendo's copyrighted musical works and audio recordings.""
• Lawsuit threat shuts down ROM downloads on major emulation site [Ars Technica]
"In the wake of Nintendo's recent lawsuits against other ROM distribution sites, major ROM repository EmuParadise has announced it will preemptively cease providing downloadable versions of copyrighted classic games. While EmuParadise doesn't seem to have been hit with any lawsuits yet, site founder MasJ writes in an announcement post that "it's not worth it for us to risk potentially disastrous consequences. I cannot in good conscience risk the futures of our team members who have contributed to the site through the years. We run EmuParadise for the love of retro games and for you to be able to revisit those good times. Unfortunately, it's not possible right now to do so in a way that makes everyone happy and keeps us out of trouble." EmuParadise will continue to operate as a repository for legal downloads of classic console emulators, as well as a database of information on thousands of classic games. "But you won't be able to get your games from here for now," as MasJ writes."
• Emulation isn't a dirty word, and one man thinks it can save gaming's history [Polygon]
""According to the Film Foundation, over half the films made before 1950 are gone," Cifaldi said. "I don't mean that you can't buy these on DVD. I mean they're gone. They don't exist anymore." For films produced before 1920, Cifaldi said, that number jumps to 80 percent. "That terrified me. I wasn't particularly a film buff, but the idea of these works just disappearing forever and never being recoverable scared the crap out of me. So I started wondering is anyone doing this for games. Is anyone making sure that video games aren't doing the same stupid shit that film did to make their heritage disappear? "And yeah, there were people doing this. We didn't call them archivists. We didn't call them digital archeologists or anything. We called them software pirates." It's emulation's long association with piracy, Cifaldi said, that has given it a bad name. Nintendo in particular seems to have a particular aversion towards it, he noted, pointing to their official statement on the issue which has been available at their corporate website for the last 16 years."
• Nintendo vs. Emulation: The difficulty of archiving games [Nintendo Enthusiast]
"Creating and using ROMs/ISOs and emulators is not inherently illegal. The thing is, there's a very thin gray area between the border of legal and illegal in this case. For someone to play classic games completely legally without it being on the original hardware with the original software, they would need to be using an emulator that's running on custom code and doesn't use BIOS files obtained from an external source. As for the games, they would need to be backups created by the user, who would have to create them by dumping the data from their own original copies of said games. Thus, emulation becomes illegal as soon as file-sharing is involved, and the vast majority of folks using emulators is doing so thanks to file-sharing. This is why Nintendo has constantly been trying to take down emulation hubs as it considers them to be centers for piracy promotion."
• Yes, Downloading Nintendo ROMs Is Illegal (Even if You Own the Game) [Tom's Hardware]
"For the most part, emulators in and of themselves do not fall under any copyright infringement, depending on their purpose. And, as mentioned before, it's unlikely a firm will call copyright infringement on a game if no company own the rights to it, or if no one really cares about the game. But what about the games people and companies do care about? It turns out, you're welcome to emulate any game for backup, so long as it's not used for commercial use. Check out what the U.S. Copyright Office has to say about it:
"Under section 117, you or someone you authorize may make a copy of an original computer program if the new copy is being made for archival (i.e., backup) purposes only; you are the legal owner of the copy; and any copy made for archival purposes is either destroyed, or transferred with the original copy, once the original copy is sold, given away, or otherwise transferred."
But selling that backup copy is another story, according to the U.S. Copyright Office:
"If you lawfully own a computer program, you may sell or transfer that lawful copy together with a lawfully made backup copy of the software, but you may not sell the backup copy alone. ... In addition to being a violation of the exclusive right of distribution, such activity is also likely to be a violation of the terms of the license to the software. ... You should be wary of sites that offer to sell you a backup copy. And if you do buy an illegal backup copy, you will be engaging in copyright infringement if you load that illegal copy onto your computer ...""
• The retro gaming industry could be killing video game preservation [Eurogamer]
"The convoluted nature of the video game emulation sector means that emulators rarely stand still for long; like any other program they are iterated upon, improved, modified for different tasks and generally tinkered with endlessly, creating development forks which branch off in multiple directions. It transpired that the fork of Snes9x used in the Retron 5 could be directly attributed to De Matteis himself. "Snes9x Next/2010 was a speedhack-focused fork that I personally developed, open sourced and published on Github," he says. "I had to perform heavy alterations to this core to get it to run acceptably well on old hardware. It is likely they used the software for this exact reason; that the others were not up to par performance-wise and it offered a good balance between performance and compatibility. Needless to say, I was never consulted beforehand; software was simply taken and sold in spite of its license that expressly forbids this." In Hyperkin's defense, it's not like the company simply downloaded the code from the web and installed it on the Retron 5; like many firms of this type, it didn't develop the software in-house but instead purchased it from an external contractor. De Matteis knows who this individual is - and has informed Hyperkin that he is aware of their identity - but doesn't wish to name them here. Nonetheless, this contractor has profited off the hard work of the RetroArch team."

          Exploring Embroidery Artwork, with Cayce Zavaglia      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Where does the inspiration come from to explore embroidery artwork? What is the process like going from the canvas to the embroidery and back again? How do the two mediums complement and contrast? I put all these questions to my talented guest, Cayce Zavaglia. In our conversation, Cayce opened up about how she got into embroidery artwork, what led her to the theme of family portraits, what it was like returning to Australia, how failure is a close link to success, and much more. I know artists like you will get as much joy as I did hearing from Cayce’s intriguing perspective.

Necessity is the mother of invention.

You’ve heard the phrase, necessity is the mother of invention, right? That saying really rang true for artist Cayce Zavaglia. During a period of creative flux, Cayce was also pregnant. This reality forced her to look for ways to continue to create in a non-toxic studio. After experimenting for a whole summer with various mediums, Cayce still hadn’t found what she wanted to work with. Back in the recesses of her mind, she kept coming back to this embroidery work she had done as a child. Tugging at this thread, Cayce decided to start experimenting by sewing a portrait. Little did she know, that this experiment unleashed a new creative endeavor that would stay with her for years to come. Make sure to check out images of Cayce’s embroidery artwork located at the end of this post.

You don’t have to choose between parenthood and an art career.

It seems to be an unwritten rule in many circles that you can’t be both a parent (oftentimes more specifically, a mother) and an artist. These two roles in society are often pitted against each other, you have to choose one or the other. Is that really accurate, do you have to choose? While some may choose to devote themselves to parenthood or their art career for a period of time, artists like Cayce serve as a prime example that you can embrace both! If you are struggling with navigating these two roles, I hope you see Cayce’s story as an encouragement!

Viewing failure as a close link to success.

What is your relationship like with failure? Do you fear it and avoid it at all costs or do you lean into it? What if I told you that failure has a closer link to success than you may have thought? Artist, Cayce Zavaglia says that she goes out of her way to look for mistakes, accidents, and failures in her artwork. Sounds crazy, right? Cayce has learned to view failure as the closest link to creativity and then to success. In her view, if you are putting yourself out there creatively, that means you are taking a risk and that’s where the greatest opportunity for success thrives! Do you agree with Cayce’s perspective?

Don’t stop creating.

While the draw of instant recognition and reaction to your artwork is enticing, Cayce Zavagila urges caution. Let’s face it, Instagram can serve as both a blessing and a curse. It can be a wonderful resource for inspiration but it can also serve as an unhelpful sounding board. Cayce says that one of the best practices that an artist can get into is the habit of spending time alone in their studio honing their craft. It’s not sexy or flashy advice but it is good advice! I’m sure there will be a wide range of opinions on this topic but I’m really thankful that Cayce is willing to step out there and provide her helpful insight!

Gold Prices Are Soaring In Venezuela

By Frank Holmes - Aug 07, 2018, 9:20 AM CDT

Last month in Venezuela’s capital city of Caracas, a cup of coffee would have set you back 2 million bolivars. That’s up from only 2,300 bolivars 12 months ago, meaning the price of a cup of joe has jumped nearly 87,000 percent, according to Bloomberg’s Café Con Leche Index. And you thought Starbucks was expensive.

But that was July. Prices in Venezuela are doubling roughly every 18 days. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) now projects inflation to hit an astronomical 1 million percent by the end of this year. This puts the beleaguered Latin American country on the same slippery path as Zimbabwe a decade ago and Germany in the 1920s, when a wheelbarrow full of marks was barely enough to get you a loaf of bread.

Venezuela’s socialist president Nicolas Maduro—who only this past weekend survived an assassination attempt involving several explosive-laden drones—announced recently that the country plans to rein in hyperinflation by lopping off five zeroes from its currency. If you recall, Zimbabwe similarly tried to combat soaring prices of its own by issuing a cartoonish $100 trillion banknote—which in 2009 was still not enough to buy a bus ticket in the capital of Harare.

Without structural governmental reforms, a new bolivar is just as unlikely to steady Venezuela’s skyrocketing inflation or remedy its crumbling economy.

So where does this put gold? At some point, hyperinflation gets so ludicrously out of control that discussing exchange rates becomes pointless. But as of July 30, an ounce of the yellow metal would have gone for 211 million bolivars—an increase of more than 3.1 million percent from just the beginning of the year.



(Click to enlarge)

My point in bringing this up is to reinforce the importance of gold’s Fear Trade, which says that demand for the yellow metal rises when inflation threatens to destroy a nation’s currency—as it’s doing right now in Venezuela. A Venezuelan family that had the prudence to store some of its wealth in gold would be in a much better position today to survive or escape President Maduro’s corrupt, far-left regime.

In extreme cases like this, gold could literally help save lives.

Such was the case following the fall of Saigon in 1975. If not for gold, many South Vietnamese families might not have managed to escape the country. A seat on one of the thousands of fleeing boats reportedly went for eight or 10 taels of gold per adult, four or five taels per child. (A tael is slightly more than an ounce.) Gold was their passport. Thanks to the precious metal, tens of thousands of Vietnamese “boat people,” as they’re now known, were able to start new lives in the U.S., Canada, Australia and other developed countries.

Venezuela’s Once Prosperous Economy Destroyed by Corruption and Mismanagement

But back to Venezuela. Amid the corruption and mismanagement, the only thing helping the country pay its bills right now is gold. Two years ago, it had the world’s 16th largest gold reserves. Today it stands at number 26 as it’s sold off more than half its holdings since 2010. While countries such as China and Russia continue to add to their holdings, Venezuela has been the world’s largest seller of gold for the past two years.



(Click to enlarge)

It’s hard to remember now, but as recently as 2001, Venezuela was the most prosperous country in all of South America. Like Zimbabwe, the OPEC nation is rich in natural resources, home to the world’s largest oil reserves and what’s believed to be the fourth largest gold mine. Oil exports account for virtually all of its export revenue.

In 2016, Venezuela was the third largest exporter of crude to the U.S. following Canada and Saudi Arabia, but with output in freefall, this is changing rapidly. For the first time ever in February, Colombia sold more crude oil to the U.S. than its eastern neighbor did. And in June, Venezuela’s state-owned oil and gas company, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), informed at least eight foreign clients that it would be unable to meet supply commitments. According to GlobalData, production is on track to fall to only 1 million barrels per day by 2019, down from 3 million a day in 2011, meaning the petrostate might soon have nothing left to deliver.

President Maduro now has the ignoble distinction of reigning over an economic recession that rivals the very worst in modern history. Last month, the IMF forecast that the country’s real gross domestic product (GDP) would fall 18 percent this year—the third straight year of double-digit declines.



(Click to enlarge)

A mass exodus of young, working-age Venezuelans, many of them college-educated, is unlikely to help. Estimates of the number of people who have fled the country in the past two years alone range from 1.7 million to as high as 4 million.

Their escape is no easy task, as numerous international airlines, citing rampant crime and a lack of electricity, have canceled all flights in and out of Caracas. The only U.S. carrier still operating in the country is American Airlines, which offers a single daily flight from the nation’s capital to Miami. Just two years ago, there were as many as 40 nonstop American flights, not to mention those of rival carriers, between the two cities—a sign of just how dramatic and swift Maduro’s mismanagement has been in crippling Venezuela’s once-robust economy.

The Diversification Benefits of Gold

The gold bears were on top last week, with the metal trading as low as $1,205 on Thursday. That’s the closest it’s come to dipping below $1,200 since February 2017. Friday’s lower-than-expected jobs report gave gold a modest boost, but it wasn’t enough to prevent a fourth straight week of price declines.

In times like this, it’s important to remember that, according to gold’s DNA of volatility, it’s a non-event for the metal to close up or down 1 percent at the end of each session, 2 percent for the 10-day trading period. And guess what? The S&P 500 Index has the same level of volatility.

Ten days ago, gold was trading just under $1,230 an ounce, or 0.6 percent more than today. The math is sound.

It’s also worth remembering that gold has traditionally had a low to negative correlation with other assets such as equities. This is why many investors over the years have used it as a portfolio diversifier.

Case in point: On June 26, suffered its worst single-day decline since the company went public in 2012. Its stock plunged 19 percent, erasing some $120 billion in market capitalization—the most ever in history for a single trading session.

Gold, meanwhile, held relatively steady, slipping only 0.62 percent.

          Vagrant AWS plugin in Windows      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Hello dear readers,

This is not a long Vagrant tutorial but a short collection of workarounds needed to run vagrant in windows.As you all know Vagrant can create DEV environments using providers. The most popular providers are VirtualBox, Hyper-V, docker and AWS .

Well I wanted to setup vagrant on a recently formatted Win10 VM but I got and issue when trying to install the AWS plug-in. After researching the error message I found out a dependency issue which is solved simply by installing first the packages below (thanks to this post ):

vagrant plugin install plugin-version 1.0.1 fog-ovirt

And then the vagrant plug-in:

vagrant plugin install vagrant-aws

I noticed that all vagrant dependencies (called ruby gems) went to the folder:C:\Users\XXX\.vagrant.d\gems

Then you add a Vagrant box with the line below (there are other VAgrant Boxes in the Vagrant Gallery ), which it is merely a formality that simply adds a file inC:\Users\XXX\.vagrant.d\dev_vm\dummy\0\aws\metadata.json with one liner: { “provider”: “aws” }

vagrant box add dummy https://github.com/mitchellh/vagrant-aws/raw/master/dummy.box

So with the Vagrant box and the plug-in in place the last step is executing the command vagrant up (which requires admin access) and voila. Don’t forget that the command needs to be executed in the same folder where your Vagrantfile is stored. I used the Vagrantfile below:

# Authored by Javier Caceres

Vagrant.configure(“2”) do |config|

config.vm.box = “dummy”

config.vm.provider :aws do |aws, override|

aws.access_key_id = “XXX”

aws.secret_access_key = “XXX”

aws.ami = “XXX”

aws.region = “XXX”

override.ssh.username = “ec2-user”

override.ssh.private_key_path = “C:/Users/XXX/.vagrant.d/dev_vm/test.pem”

aws.user_data = “#!/bin/bash\necho ‘got user data’ > /tmp/user_data.log\necho”

end

config.vm.provision “shell”, inline: <<-SHELL

sudo echo “#!/bin/bash\necho ‘got user data’ > /tmp/user_data.log\necho”

SHELL

end

In my case I only wanted to play with the shell inline part as a way to setup my DEV box ( similar to this link ).

I noticed that this particular plug-in creates some files under C:\Users\XXX\.vagrant.d\dev_vm\.vagrant\machines\default\aws but you only really need the filesaction_provision and id which is where the AWS VM instanceid is stored.

So I deleted all other files and executed the command below and worked as expected:

vagrant provision provision-with shell

I noticed that the plug-in makes a bit of excessive use of the AWS API so I recorded the issues below hoping that maybe someday an AWS-less leaner SSH connection is possible:

https://github.com/mitchellh/vagrant-aws/issues/551

https://github.com/mitchellh/vagrant-aws/issues/552

Regards,

Javier Caceres

What Happened at The Lake
Amazon US link

NOTE TO THE READER: This is a dark psychological thriller that delves into depraved acts of humanity. For adult readers only who can handle these subject matters. Adult language and explicit sexual violence.

They went on vacation. Not everyone made it back.

The Palmers went to the lake for a week of fun in the sun. But Alex Palmer had an agenda. He wanted his brother to reconcile with their hypercompetitive father. He wanted his daughter to break up with her shady boyfriend. Most of all, Alex wanted them to be a family one more time before he faced his predicament at home.

Evil incarnate and a brutal double murder shifted Alex’s focus from wants to needs. He needed to keep his family safe. He needed to find her. He needed to know what happened at the lake.

His pastor often said, “God won’t give you more than you can bear.”

This had nothing to do with God.


The Effective Air Fryer Cookbook: The Ultimate Guide Inclusive of 150 Healthy Recipes
Amazon US link

Don’t you just love the crunchy texture and intense flavor of deep fried foods like fried chicken, French fries, breaded pork chops and calamari? It’s no wonder these items are staples, not only in fast food chains but also in the menus of many American households.

According to experts, the typical American diet is high in fat and low in nutrients. Deep frying, which is a popular cooking method in the United States and many Western countries, is pointed out as one of the reasons to blame.

So does this mean that we can no longer enjoy our deep-fried favorites? Fortunately, the answer is no.

The air fryer was designed specifically for this purpose—so that people can enjoy fried foods without the health drawbacks.

An air fryer utilizes what is called “rapid air technology” to cook food that usually requires being submerged in deep fat or oil. What the device does is circulate the air to reach up to 390 degrees F in order to fry foods like fries, chicken, chips, fish and many more.

          Comment on Pakistan Needs a Strong New Leader, by Eric Margolis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Indians, the nation who've by their own actions turned their online communities into meme templates because of the delusion (Superpower chants) and the generally misplaced sense of grandeur (showing off about having space missions whilst 50% of India defecates openly, a front where India makes very little progress), always incorporate a healthy degree of projection onto Pakistan in their comments. Their absolute, frothing-at-the-moth jingoism is not something they can restrain and as a result their outlook toward us Pakistanis, their enemy of old, is one that is so void of any sense that it simply piggybacks off contemporary and very neocon Western narratives (i.e attacking Pakistan's Muslim character all the time). First off, the UN set preconditions that India violated in Kashmir. I wasn't aware of this until recently when a UN officer's (P Graham) report from 1967 was declassified a few years ago from now stated that Pakistan had begun the de-militarization of its side of the ceasefire line in Kashmir in 1948, as per the first and second UN resolutions, but India declined to do so after Pakistan had started and thus Pakistan stopped. The following proposals Graham mentioned in his review of the UNICOP of 1948 similarly were rejected by the Indians in dealing with the situation caused by India not following Pakistan's lead in de-militarizing. See that? The Indians got nothing on us. All that they do is project, project, project. For example, 'Pakistan has ethnically cleansed its Hindus'. False. There has never, in history, been a single incident of government, or political parties-orchestrated, genocide of Hindus. Indians in their endless crass ignorance cite the drop in percentage of Hindus in Pakistan's population between 1947 and the 1970s as 'oh where did they go, must've been killed!'... Despite not knowing that when East Pakistan seceded with months worth of Indian military assistance the majority of Pakistani Hindus became Bangladeshi and thus removed from the Pakistani population. Duh, right? Just, DUH. But Indians can't think. Indians can't think when they come to projecting at Pakistan. Does Pakistan have any state-led ethnic cleansing of minorities? No. Does India? Hell-to-the-yes! Gujarat Riots 2002, current Indian PM and CM of Gujarat at the time Narendra Modi was caught in public encouraging Hindu rioters to kill Gujarati Muslims (killed 2000, slaughtered pregnant women as well). Bombay Riots 1992, also targeting Muslims. Heavy involvement of the RSS. Nellie Massacre (1980s; can't remember exact year), targeting Muslims. Heavy involvement of the RSS. That's just three thus far, and even one is more than what happens in Pakistan. Indians might have, had they any tact, made the excuse that India simply has more minorities (10% Muslim, or perhaps 15%, with 57% Brahmin i.e upper caste Hindus and perhaps 5% Sikhs) and thus they shouldn't be compared to Pakistan but they themselves initiate the comparisons. And look a lot worse. Pakistan has been learning, India has been de-learning. India has been hooking itself up to the steroids of hyper-nationalism while Pakistan has been fighting for its survival. Our war against terrorists is a war against terrorists who call other Muslims apostates and slaughter them. India's war against Kashmiri youth picking up guns to fight their thuggish, rapist army is no war against terror.

          Éoliennes: un champ de mines à retardement      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Les Français vivent désormais sans le savoir au milieu d'un champ de 8000 mines à retardement. L'opinion publique a basculé cet été 2018 vers le rejet franc et massif de ce procédé. Les sondages encore cette semaine dans Le Figaro virent de bord vers une majorité de sceptiques sur le caractère pseudo " écologique " de la filière des promoteurs éoliens, financiers repeints en vert. Ils ont raison. On ne peut tromper la population éternellement. Les conséquences d'une installation anarchique sur l'ensemble du territoire se font palpables et très négatives, voire menaçantes pour l'avenir. Désormais, l'insupportable est atteint après des années de propagande médiatique très intéressée. Plusieurs conseils régionaux et départementaux et non des moindres, comme les Hauts de France ou l'Allier, viennent de voter des motions d'arrêt d'un éolien inefficace, très pénalisant pour les territoires et super spéculatif. Des milieux de pression très bien financés, des maires isolés dociles ou cyniques, des réseaux de financement pas toujours très clairs, comme l'a démontré l'enquête de la Commission de régulation de l'énergie, ont contribué à miner le territoire français. Ces éoliennes n'ont pas été implantées là où existait le besoin, près des villes ou des concentrations industrielles. Elles ont été placées là où c'était facile de le faire, du moment qu'on trouve un endroit isolé, avec peu d'opposants et des propriétaires complaisants, et beaucoup d'amis dans les cabinets ministériels. 50 milliards d'efforts, sur dix ans, payés par le contribuable, un tiers du territoire français concerné, pour à peine 4 à 5% de l'électricité nationale, et seulement un jour sur cinq d'assuré en production. Quel désastre... sauf pour quelques fortunés, y compris les quelques fondateurs d'EDF Energies Nouvelles, dont les centaines (oui ! centaines!) de millions d'euros sont bien au chaud au Luxembourg, même pas en France. Ces installations, souvent implantées en rase campagne dans des sites isolés, sont théoriquement classées ICPE, c'est-à-dire installation industrielle à risque, mais leur surveillance est hasardeuse. Il suffit de fréquenter un site éolien pour constater qu'il n'y a personne et pas un seul emploi sur place, ni aucune précaution particulière de surveillance. Pourtant, ces installations industrielles présentent plus de risques que les discours lénifiants ne le laissent entendre. La plupart du temps, c'est un simple artisan électricien qui est chargé de venir jeter un coup d'oeil de temps en temps. La télésurveillance est faite par des robots et de l'étranger, quand ils marchent. On sait que les profits les plus juteux sont faits à la construction des éoliennes, jusqu'à un million et plus par éolienne. La suite n'est donc pas étonnante. On trouve aujourd'hui en Allemagne ou en Grande-Bretagne des éoliennes d'occasion à 200 000 euros alors que ces opérations sont facturées jusqu'à 3 million par éolienne... Où est la vérité? Y compris pour les banques ? Un récent incendie d'éolienne dans le Jura a failli embraser un massif forestier entier, évité de justesse par plus de 30 pompiers. Il n'existe aucun plan d'urgence pour toutes les opérations à proximité de forêts, aucune précaution des incidents de promeneurs aucune assurance sur les dispositifs anti-pollution théoriques. De nombreuses rave parties utilisent les sites d'éoliennes isolés, devenus des hypermarchés de stupéfiants, et visibles de loin avec leurs clignotants. Une pale de plusieurs tonnes est tombée à quelques mètres de l'autoroute A10, mais l'opérateur, pourtant filiale d'EDF, a mis plusieurs jours à réagir. L'érosion des sols commence à se voir à l'oeil nu sur les nombreuses opérations implantées en plein champ en Beauce ou ailleurs. Un accident d'avion sur un vol sans histoire vient de se produire "par hasard" à proximité d'un important champ d'éoliennes vers Issoire. On attend l'enquête avec inquiétude sur les pressions éventuelles. Déjà un accident mortel de montgolfière a fait naitre de nombreux doutes à proximité d'un champ d'éoliennes vers Château-Thierry, selon les termes des autorités préfectorales. Qu'en sera-t-il si les éoliennes en mer sont implantées à proximité des côtes avec de multiples aérodromes à proximité ? Une éolienne moyenne brasse 30 tonnes d'air à la seconde par simple vent de 18 km/h. La sécurité aérienne australienne émet des recommandations d'évitement jusqu'à 12 km des éoliennes, beaucoup moins inoffensives qu'il n'y parait, après plusieurs accidents évités de justesse, y compris un gros appareil d'un modèle utilisé par le Président des USA. Les massifs de béton enfouis dans le sol ont été discrètement évacués de la réglementation mais ils restent à la charge des propriétaires, qui souvent l'ignorent. Ce sont autant de bombes à retardement qui les ruineront en centaines de milliers d'euros de dépollution à la moindre alerte d'atteinte du sous-sol, des eaux souterraines, et sur simple demande d'une association de protection de la nature. Le coût de démantèlement des éoliennes est officiellement chiffré à 50 000 euros alors que tous les devis de professionnels atteignent au moins 450 000 euros, socle de béton en plus. Les lanthanides, matériaux magnétiques largement utilisés dans les alternateurs des éoliennes, polluent plus à l'extraction que les minerais radioactifs, et leur dispersion par usure est au moins aussi dangereuse que l'amiante. La revue American Thinker rappelle qu'il existe 14 000 éoliennes rouillées aux USA, cyniquement abandonnées par leurs propriétaires dont les nombreuses filiales financières empêchent de retrouver la trace. Or ce système de filiales complexes est exactement le même en France et on peut supposer que les arrières pensées ne sont pas très loin. Une mystérieuse banque égyptienne inconnue en Europe, pourtant impliquée dans des scandales de corruption selon le Financial Times, est devenue propriétaire de l'un des opérateurs connus en France. Qu'en sera-t-il tôt ou tard des autres ?
          Le retail face aux nouveaux modes de consommation (extrait)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
L'innovation et la création de la valeur au service du consommateur : be Customer-obsessed ! Aux débuts du marketing, les marques fonctionnaient en mode vertical. Elles créaient l'offre en fonction de paramètres divers, donnant lieu à une expérience que les consommateurs étaient obligés d'accepter. L'arrivée d'Internet et notamment l'avènement de la mobilité a transformé les comportements d'achat des consommateurs. Ils sont désormais hyperinformés et leur rapport avec les marques s'est inversé. Aujourd'hui, si les marques leur proposent des choses qui ne leur conviennent pas, non seulement ils ne les acceptent plus mais en plus ils les contestent. Ils ont entre les mains tous les outils pour faire connaître aux marques en temps réels leur avis et leur état d'esprit. L'innovation est donc plus que jamais le moteur majeur de la création de valeur des marques et des enseignes. Cette innovation peut prendre plusieurs formes : offre de biens, de services, innovation commerciale, innovation sociale, innovation humaine et bien sûr innovation technologique. Depuis l'arrivée d'Internet l'évolution des marques a été jalonnée d'innovations : site Internet, e-commerce, paiement en ligne, logistique, applications mobiles, solutions de livraison Mais ces innovations doivent répondre à leur objectif premier : servir le consommateur et non pas servir une course à l'échalote avec les concurrents. " Nous avons eu seulement trois grandes idées pour Amazon en 18 ans, et c'est la raison pour laquelle nous réussissons : 1. mettre le client en premier ; 2. inventer ; 3. et être patient. " -Jeff Bezos, CEO d'Amazon. Ce que réclament aujourd'hui les consommateurs est évident : une expérience fluide, facile et sans coutures, c'est-à-dire des marques omnicanales capables de répondre à leurs attentes tout au long de leur parcours utilisateur quel que soit le canal utilisé. L'omnicanalité est une obligation qui devra être optimisée et adaptée en permanence grâce aux nouvelles technologies qui améliorent cette expérience (Intelligence artificielle, cloud, réalité virtuelle, assistant vocaux). Les nombreux outils d'écoute et d'analyses que les marques ont aujourd'hui à leur disposition leur permettent de rester en contact permanent avec leurs consommateurs, et leur donnent la possibilité de créer de nouveaux services pour satisfaire l'éternel insatisfait qu'est le consommateur. Le monde, par ailleurs, est en train de subir de profonds changements économiques, écologiques et sociétaux. Les consommateurs sont désormais en quête de sens, attendent des marques qu'elles se positionnent sur des sujets environnementaux et qu'elles intègrent à leurs modèles des offres plus responsables. Ils se déclarent même prêts à changer de marques si jamais celles-ci ne leur apportent pas une preuve tangible d'engagement. Le défi pour les marques aujourd'hui est donc double : réussir à enrichir leur proposition de valeur en intégrant progressivement des propositions responsables à leur offre, tout en continuant à développer leur omnicanalité. Hommes et entreprises : une nouvelle vision pour un nouveau modèle Au même titre que les consommateurs deviennent consommActeurs, les collaborateurs deviennent collaborActeurs. Les individus informés et connectés aujourd'hui comprennent qu'ils ont une responsabilité dans leur manière de consommer, et que cette consommation a des impacts à la fois sociétaux et environnementaux. De la même manière, ils ressentent le besoin de donner du sens à ce qu'ils font. Aujourd'hui ils souhaitent travailler pour des entreprises porteuses de sens, dans lesquels ils se reconnaissent, et occuper des jobs pour lesquels ils sentent qu'ils ont un impact sociétal et environnemental positif. Les entreprises doivent comprendre cette nouvelle mentalité et pouvoir fédérer leurs employés autour d'une marque employeur aux valeurs fortes, inspirantes et positives sous peine de voir les meilleurs profils s'échapper. Par ailleurs, compte tenu de l'importance qu'ont aujourd'hui les communautés, un des plus grands atouts pour une entreprise est cette capacité à fédérer ces communautés de collaborActeurs autour d'un projet engageant. Les entreprises qui attirent les profils les plus puissants sont des entreprises gérées par des visionnaires, très innovantes en matière de technologie, RH et management, mais également très engagées d'un point de vue sociétal et environnemental. Ces entreprises ne vendent plus que des produits, elles apportent une solution pour améliorer le monde et ont un discours transparent aussi bien avec leurs collaborateurs qu'avec les consommateurs. Les marques et les enseignes de demain devront chercher à satisfaire le sentiment d'appartenance de leurs collaborateurs et encourager le fait de les transformer en ambassadeurs d'un projet porteur de sens et de valeurs durables et responsables. Ceci est un extrait du livre " Le retail face aux nouveaux modes de consommation " écrit par Estefania Larranaga et Lucie Soulard paru aux Editions Dunod (ISBN-10 : 2100778358, ISBN-13 : 978-2100778355).

          Why Ministry Hurts So Much and What to Do About It      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Sometimes ministry hurts.

There's grief and pain for church leaders.

It's like a violent storm that comes from every angle against us. Discouragement. Depression. Quitting. Being fired. Wanting to turn your back on church and ministry.

Why is the downside of being in ministry so huge? And why does it hit all of us?

Prayerfully read on, church leader, to see how God wants to strengthen and encourage you today. There aren't easy answers. Just some perspective and hope.

Why Ministry Hurts

Why does ministry hurt so much?

1. Imperfect people do imperfect things.

It's the obvious starting place: Ministry hurts because people do and say things that are hurtful.

They may be ornery, oblivious or power-seeking. They may not mean to be hurtful, or even realize that they hurt people. They may be sorry.

Or they may never admit their part in the hurt.

We're surprised when people in church hurt other people, but we shouldn't be. We're still a bunch of sinners.

2. The Evil One is the Destroyer.

Let's not forget who is behind the hurt.

It's not accidental. It's calculated to bring ruin and comes from the one who is out to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10).

3. We're blinded by our own perspective.

We got robbed several years ago, and in the aftermath, we were surprised by how hypersensitive we were.

In an unusual turnaround of expectations, for the next few days, we expected sympathy and sensitivity from everybody. We felt violated. And with all the details of closing stolen credit cards and bank accounts, we were hurt, frustrated and angry. We couldn't think straight. We got easily irritated. We weren't our normal, reasonable selves.

It's not easy to step away from the pain, to put it in perspective or to move past it. Sometimes ministry hurts because all we can see is the offense and the offenders.

4. Church work is just plain hard.

Peter Drucker has famously ranked the job of pastor as one of the four hardest professions. We're right alongside the president of the United States, university presidents and hospital CEOs. At least we're in good company.

Why is ministry so hard?

Samuel Chand in Leadership Pain explains that in former days, pastors only needed to preach and care for their flock. Now they need to run a much more complex organization involving buildings, finances, human resources and community partnerships. Not the usual seminary curricula.

In addition, our churches sit in the middle of a post-modern culture. Our church members can listen to the best preachers every time they slap on their headphones and go for a run. They only come to church a couple times a month.

The colloquialism "it's an uphill battle" comes to mind.

5. Your gifting leaves you weak in other areas.

  • You may be a good preacher, but you don't like administration.
  • You may be full of vision and passion, but you disappoint people when you're not at their bedside.
  • You may be a great shepherd, but you can't move the church forward.

We bring our strengths to our ministry, but our weaknesses become the focal point of the criticism. We work harder, try to do better, wear stress like a badge and persevere for the sake of the gospel. But our weaknesses come hand in hand with our gifts.

6. You are caught in difficult circumstances.

You didn't know that the senior pastor was going to resign in a cloud of dust two months after you arrived, and that the congregation wouldn't trust anyone for years.

You didn't foresee the chronic illness in your spouse, the rebelliousness in your kids or the financial struggles you would face. Our difficult circumstances manifest in symptoms of grief and stress.

The next time you're with other pastors, go behind the "how big is your church" facade and quietly ask how they are really doing.

You'll find that everyone has difficult circumstances.

6. You expected it to be easier.

It would have been good to know when you went into ministry what it was really going to be like. We didn't know that most churches don't grow, and that growth, when it does come, brings new challenges.

I don't know why we expected a world of easy blessing. It wasn't easy for any of the leaders in the Bible:

  • David hid in a cave from the murderous Saul.
  • Abraham was asked to sacrifice his son.
  • Moses had millions of malcontents.
  • Paul was beaten, stoned, shipwrecked and so on.
  • And Jesus bore our sins on the cross.

As you've noticed, leadership pain is normal. It isn't a mistake. It's God's proving ground.

What to Do about the Ministry Pain You're Facing

1. Run to Jesus.

You may feel too numb to practice spiritual disciplines or to expect anything resembling hope or joy.

Let me gently suggest that you need to get out of town like Elijah. You need extended time alone with Jesus.

Find a cave and bring your complaints to God. Listen for his voice. He got you into this mess. Let him get you out of it. Let him comfort you, and like Elijah, let him strengthen you (1 Kings 19).

2. Embrace the pain and decide to grow.

Easier said than done, I know.

When you realize that the worst thing to do is to go numb and ignore the pain, and the best thing to do is to decide that you won't give up, then you're ready to see from Jesus how to grow through this.

You can do it.

You may never have expected Hebrews 12:7 to speak to the pastor, but it does: "Endure discipline; God is dealing with you as with sons. For what son is there who ma father does not discipline?"

And "Yet afterward it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness in those who have been trained by it" (Heb. 12:11b).

3. Find someone to talk to.

Maybe you're one of the lucky ones, and you have someone around who will listen to you.

Most pastors are too isolated to share their heaviest burdens. If that's your situation, then pay someone to talk with you.

I'm not kidding. Get a counselor to help you work through what you're feeling and how you can learn from your situation.

You'll make progress, you'll feel better, and you never have to worry about your counselor betraying you or leaving you.

4. Get out of town for a short vacation.

Or take a longer time away if you can manage it. Go camping. Use Groupon to find a deal to take the kids to a waterpark. Or take your spouse on a weekend getaway.

Do something fun and different. Get some fresh air and a new point of view. Let your problems fade in importance.

I'm often surprised at how much lighter my load feels when I'm out of town.

Here's how to get away if it seems too hard: Why Pastors Should Get Away Every Summer—and How to Make it Work.

5. Manage your own expectations.

Ministry is hard. But hard things don't need to floor you. Somehow it's a little less discouraging when you decide to see challenges as a normal part of life, and when you embrace the principle that God uses pain to grow leaders.

6. Stand on God's Word

Open up your Bible and read Psalm 31.

Here are some highlights:

  • "Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; my eye wastes away with grief, yes, my soul and my body" (v. 9).
  • "Oh, how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, which You have done for those seeking refuge in You before people! You will hide them in the secret of Your presence from conspirators; You will keep them secretly in a shelter from the strife of tongues. Blessed be the Lord, for He has shown me His marvelous lovingkindness in a fortified city" (vv. 19-21).
  • "Be strong, and He will strengthen your heart, all you who wait for the Lord" (v. 24).

    Here are more Bible verses that strengthen us in times of trouble:

"For this reason we do not lose heart: Even though our outward man is perishing, yet our inward man is being renewed day by day. Our light affliction, which lasts but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Cor. 4:16-18).

"Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, yes, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand" (Isa. 41:10).

"But he knows the way that I take; when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold" (Job 23:10).

Here are a few more: Isaiah 40:28-31, Joshua 1:7-9, Lamentations 3 and Ephesians 6:10-18. Or go back and read your old favorites again.

Let God speak to you through His Word, and he will ease your ministry pain.

What's Next?

Read Samuel R. Chand's book, Leadership Pain, for a deep dive in learning how to use your pain for growth. Chand advises that you should continually raise your threshold for leadership pain because you will only grow as a leader to the limit of the pain you are willing to face.

I see hope for you. {eoa}

Hi,

currently when you open a specific Incident/Change/WorkOrder/Task/ServiceRequest you have to use the InstanceId of the ticket to get a result: http://smartITServer.com:9000/ux/smart-it/#/incident/AGGAA5V0GXIOMANQ2OOXAAGX1LQ93H

This is not really user friendly. It should be possible to use the incident number instead of the InstanceID.

 

An example regarding Smart Reporting: Per default you have a hyperlink in some report behind the incident number. So when you click on the incident number you will redirected to the specific incident, but unfortunately you will redirected to ITSM via MidTier and not to Smart-IT. As a workaround you can add the InstanceID to the report and add a hyperlink behind it with a redirect to Smart-IT.

Thanks

Christoph

          "War In Front Of Me" - New Chinese Military Video Shows Off Range Of Advanced Weaponry      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A new video produced by China's military that features the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) showing off a wide range of the country's latest military technology has gone viral after its publication to social media on August 1st, the day China commemorated 'Army Day'.

The just over two-minute video, called "I am a Chinese soldier" is an over the top patriotic tribute emphasizing a combination of personal sacrifice, loyalty, and a sense of esprit de corps in belonging to an elite, modernized military. 

The National Interest has provided a translation of the popular Chinese language footage, which is described as follows:

The video is brimful with the grandiosity that is now associated with the military under Xi Jinping: a lot of ammunition is fired, and the very latest in China’s military technology — combat aircraft, a carrier battle group, long-range ballistic missiles, submarines and armored vehicles — is on full, proud, active display.

The video further appeals to a masculine sense of duty and sacrificial hardship as the there's a series of scenes in the first half depicting men saying tearful goodbyes to their children and spouses, after which infantry soldiers give fierce battle cries while waving the communist national flag, interspersed with overhead shots of huge intercontinental ballistic missiles a silo and an aircraft carrier battle group

The narration includes the lines: "Peace behind me, war in front of me. Pick up the steel gun, we must let go of the children."

The National Interest notes the masculine and patriotic appeal of the video

As some watchers have observed, the world depicted in this video is very much a man’s world — there isn’t a single female soldier; the few women who appear are mothers and spouses, tearfully enduring, no doubt with the full patriotism that is expected of them by the Chinese Communist Party, the absences and heart-rending departures of sons and husbands. At times serene and towards the end bombastic, the accompanying soundtrack could have been written by Hans Zimmer (think his majestic score for Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line ).

China has increasingly over the past year attempted to promote an image of itself to international foes and rivals as on a path of overtaking the United States and other world powers in the area of defense technology. 

Screengrab from the Chinese military produced "I am a Chinese soldier"

Meanwhile America's top nuclear commander warned this week that both China and Russia's development of hyperonic weapons constitute a threat that the US deterrent arsenal currently cannot defend against

Air Force Gen. John Hyten warned the two countries are not America's "friends" and that the new military technology threat should be taken with urgency and seriousness.

"You can't call them [Russia and China] our friends if they're building weapons that can destroy the United States of America," Gen. Hyten said.

The narration (translated from Chinese):

Who am I?

I am the one the mother cannot reach at the door.

I am the wife who is reluctant to hang up the phone.

I am a stranger who dares not approach in the eyes of my son.

I am the concern and pride of my loved ones.

Peace behind me, war in front of me.

Pick up the steel gun, we must let go of the children.

Put on the military uniform, we must give up comfort and ease.

Fighting the battlefield, the character of the man.

From the military to the country, there is no regret in this life.

I am a Chinese soldier.

I am a soldier of the people.

I am the guardian of a good life.

          Civic ministry launches safe shopping initiative      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME)’s Public Relations and Communications Department has launched an awareness campaign at Al Meera Consumer Goods Company - Geant Hypermarket, Hyatt Plaza, on safe shopping.

The initiative was launched on Monday in co-operation with Al Rayyan Municipality in the presence of a number of MME officials and staff.  Members of the Qatari Cultural and Social Centre for the Deaf are also participating in it. The campaign is aimed at enhancing social awareness about safe shopping practices and the rules that should be followed while going to the market. For instance, it is recommended to start a shopping trip by purchasing dry and canned food, and conclude with the purchase of frozen products when needed. 

In all cases, consumers should make sure that the products they are buying are valid and not expired. Meanwhile, the MME’s Public Gardens Department and Al Rayyan Municipality’s Gardens Section, in co-operation with the Ministry of Culture and Sports and Qatar Sports for All Federation have launched an initiative involving daily sports activities, to be held all year round, for women and children at the sports hall of Luqta Park. The timings are from 4pm until 6pm. The initiative will enable women and children visiting the park to gather and practise  sports activities under the supervision of specialised female coaches.

In another development, Al Khor and Al Thakhira Municipality’s Health Control Section conducted a number of inspection tours last month at various food establishments within the municipality to ensure that health and safety standards were strictly followed while dealing with food products. Besides, the section reviewed some other shops to renew their operational licences. The campaign resulted in the issuance of 13 violations of Law No 8 for 1990 on human food control. One cafeteria was closed for violating the law. 

In the meantime, the municipality inspected 1,366 slaughtered sheep and destroyed 18 carcasses for being unfit for human consumption. In addition, daily inspections at the fish market resulted in the destruction of 272kg of fish for not being suitable for human consumption.

Mentre Europa esclatava en conflictes ideològics violentíssims,  En Cartesius defugia qualsevol tipus de confrontació. Ell mai aixecà la veu per fer una protesta o una denúncia. En Descartes, per no esmentar res de compromès,  no fa la més petita referència a la matança de la Nit de Sant Bartomeu, ni a la cruel persecució a que eren sotmesos els hugonots.  En Cartesius es va posar decididament al servei de les autoritats intel·lectuals conservadores de París, és a dir, de l’Arquebisbe.

  El pensament d’En Descartes no obrí camí cap a la modernitat. Tot i la pròpia declaració de la bondat de la  seva investigació, la veritat és que El Discurs del mètode és un intent de fer valer la metafísica com a ciència; la seva novetat era que feia ús d’una metodologia que semblava independent de la de l'Escolàstica. Hem de sospitar que la suposada grandesa d'En Descartes és un mite creat i cultivat pel Poder francès; que és una construcció del nou Imaginari de l'Univers francès del segle XVIII, obra de la Il·lustració. Els Universos espanyol i català també rendeixen culte a la mitologia de la figura d'En Descartes. A la programació oficial d'ensenyament, En Descartes figura com un dels grans filòsofs de tots els temps. Hem de suposar que a un determinat moment del segle XIX, la Cúria romana va treure de l’Índex les obres d’En Descartes; aquells cardenals degueren concloure  que el cartesianisme, en darrer terme, podia ésser un aliat contra l'agnosticisme  i el materialisme. Sigui pel motiu que sigui, el cert és que les enciclopèdies catòliques i les de l'espanyolisme continuen amb el cultiu del mite cartesià. En Descartes pretenia demostrar l'existència de Déu a partir de la idea de Déu. L'argument parteix de considerar que la idea de Déu no és adventícia, no procedeix de cap tipus d'experiència dels nostres sentits, ni és el resultat d'una combinació d'idees; també afegeix que la idea de Déu és la més gran possible (Aquells metafísics s’empatollaven tot de classificacions segons la grandària de les idees, les quals sembla que podien ser grans, la més gran, mitjanes, petites, majors i menors, insignificants, minúscules, etc). El pas crucial en l'argumentació cartesiana rau en considerar  axiomàtic el principi que diu que tota idea en la nostra ment és per una causa específica i que hi ha una proporcionalitat necessària entre la idea i la causa d'aquesta idea; segons això, en Descartes argumenta que la idea de Déu a la nostra ment ha de ser causada necessàriament per una causa infinita,  la qual és Déu. En Hume demostraria la inconsistència d'aquesta metodologia. Els llibres de text posen el Racionalisme com un precedent de l’Empirisme, com si els dos anessin de la mà; però aquesta suposada relació és una mistificació de la realitat històrica.

   En contra del que afirmen els llibres de text i les enciclopèdies de l'Univers espanyol, he de suposar que el pensament d'En Descartes degué tenir una difusió molt limitada a Europa del seu temps. En Descartes establí la residència a Holanda, però no hi anava atret per l’ambient intel·lectual renovador holandès, sinó  perquè tenia por de l'amenaça catòlica; ell va estar molt pendent de les incidències del procés d'En Galilei. Per altra banda, a França, la Inquisició es mostrava molt activa i violenta contra els hugonots (calvinistes francesos) i contra els jueus. El projecte intel·lectual d'En Descartes no va néixer del context on brotaven les idees del pensament modern; s'establia a Holanda, però no s'impregnava de l'esperit calvinista holandès. En Descartes no fou mai una amenaça per  a la França absolutista, catòlica i opressora; no manifestà ni pública ni privadament cap tipus de queixa o protesta contra la intolerància. Tot i  que sabia que En Galilei era processat per la Inquisició, no va fer pública ni la més mínima protesta per la condemna del científic italià.  En Descartes es mostrà molt poruc, fins al punt que evità qualsevol tipus de crítica contra la filosofia oficial. A la seva obra, no cità per a res a N'Aristòtil ni a En Tomàs;  hem de suposar que ho feia per prevenció, perquè sabia de quina manera les gastava la Inquisició. No deixa de sorprendre el fet que als escrits d'En Descartes quasi no hi ha referències a altres filòsofs. Per allò que havia de dir - de manera que no posava en qüestió cap punt de la ideologia oficial - s'hagués pogut estalviar l'estada a Holanda.  En efecte, anys més tard, a 1641, presentà el seu nou llibre, Meditacions metafísiques, a la Universitat de París; obra que - com diu al pròleg -  posava a la disposició de Els senyors degans i doctors de la Sagrada Facultat de Teologia de París.  El projecte científicd'En Descartes no conté cap element d'innovació, ans al contrari, és una clara oferta platònica, reaccionària, dirigida a la Cúria romana;  ofereix un instrument ideològic per a combatre els heterodoxos, o uns suposats agnòstics. El projecte consisteix en demostrar que Déu i l'ànima humana són a l'abast de la raó natural; amb paraules seves...l'existència de Déu pot provar-se per la raó natural...que de la Sagrada Escriptura s'infereix que el seu coneixement és molt més clar que el que d'altres coses creades i que és, en veritat, tan fàcil, que els qui no el tenen són culpables. (Meditacions metafísiques,  introducció). En Descartes declara que els seus escrits són una modesta aportació per adjuntar-la, si convé, a les dels grans personatges a fi d'anul·lar les raons adduïdes per alguns impius que no volen acceptar que hagi Déu i que l'ànima humana sigui cosa distinta del cos. O sigui que el projecte cartesià, segons confessa el propi autor, fou crear un instrument al servei de la reacció sangonosa de la Contrareforma. Però les obres de Descartes foren rebudes amb desconfiança pels teòlegs escolàstics; la Sagrada Facultat de Teologia no es va entusiasmar per l'oferiment de Descartes; al poc temps començaren les impugnacions de la filosofia cartesiana; paral·lelament, l'Església catòlica la condemnà, i prohibí el seu ensenyament. Al 1671, per decret reial, es prohibia l'ensenyament de la filosofia d'En Cartesius a les universitats de França.

   He de suposar que l'enaltiment d'En Descartes fou obra dels constructors del nou Univers ideològic francès. Hem de suposar que els nous dirigents pretenien construir un nou Univers francès que havia de ser l'admiració del Món. Els nous rectors culturals degueren decidir un bon dia crear un mite magnífic: en Descartes havia de ser un gran científic i un gran filòsof; havia de ser el gran pensador francès, potser el més gran, que havia iniciat el camí de la modernitat. En Descartes era el personatge més escaient: per una banda era un que havia estat condemnat per la Inquisició i alhora proclamava l’imperi de la raó. El xovinisme francès s'ha mantingut fins avui, amb la qual cosa es mostra la feblesa de tot l'Univers ideològic francès. Els llibres de text francesos i les enciclopèdies franceses mantenen quasi  tota la immensa mitologia xovinista creada al llarg dels segles.

   

     Els llibres de text i les enciclopèdies donen per suposat que el Racionalisme d’En Descartes significava l’inici del pensament modern (Per exemple, vegeu la versió ostentosa de Viquipèdia de la pàgina dedicada a En René Descartes, que fa: És considerat el pare de la filosofia moderna en ser el primer en proposar el problema de la validesa del coneixement com a primera qüestió filosòfica, i una de les figures clau de la revolució científica. És responsable, entre d'altres coses, de la geometria analítica, de la generalització de l'ús del mot idea amb el significat de "contingut de la ment humana", la invenció de les coordenades cartesianes o de la sentència  cogito ergo sum (penso, aleshores existeixo), a partir de la qual construeix el seu pensament filosòfic.). Però, en realitat, objectivament, el racionalisme d’En Descartes no anava més enllà del racionalisme d’En Tomàs. En Tomàs havia acomodat al dogma catòlic la metafísica aristotèlica. La Summa Teològicahavia recollit les proves de l’existència de Déu basades exclusivament en la raó natural que havia exposat Aristòtil al seu temps. En Tomàs no es cansa de repetir que les veritats de la fe i les de la raó necessàriament han de coincidir.  O sigui, podem afirmar que ambdós pensadors son igualment intel·lectualistes racionalistes.

 

   Si de cas, es podria dir que En Descartes insistia en la validesa de la metafísica, i que pretenia fer algunes aportacions personals en suport de la Teologia entesa com a ciència suprema.

   

     

   En Descartes pretenia construir els seu edifici sobre uns fonaments dogmàtics. Donava per suposat que hi havia idees innates, com la idea de Déu o la idea d’ànima espiritual. 

     Una vegada va haver afirmat el sum del cogito, En Descartes va iniciar la investigació de l’ànima a una velocitat de creuer. Tot resultava rodó; així, va descobrir que el jo era el mateix que l’ànima, que la naturalesa de l’ànima és pensar, que per existir no necessita de cap lloc ni de cosa alguna material, que és completament distinta del cos, que és més fàcil de conèixer que el cos, que encara que no existís el cos, l’ànima no deixaria d’ésser tot  el que és (Discurs del mètodequarta part) .

 

   Ja posat en una formidable introspecció metafísica, En Descartes feia la seva primera demostració de l’existència de Déu. Així, en unes poques línies, fa tot un seguit de descobriments de ciència metafísica total; i diu que posat que jo dubtava, no era el meu ésser enterament perfecte, doncs veia clarament que hi ha més perfecció en el conèixer que en el dubtar. Arribat aquí, a En Descartes se li va ocórrer indagar per on havia après a pensar en qualque cosa més perfecte que el jo. Tot seguit, va deduir que havia de ser una naturalesa més perfecta.

   Fa saber que els pensaments de coses exteriors a ell, com el cel, la terra, la llum, el calor ...no me preocupava molt el saber d’on procedien.  O sigui, el d’En Descartes seria un mètode (no gens científic) que introdueix l’estranya categoria de la preocupació i dels diversos graus de preocupació.

      I, a continuació, afirma: no veient en aquestes coses res que me paregués fer-les superiors a mi.  El mètode, inconsistentment, introdueix les categories poc científiques de “veure o no veure en els propis pensaments”, de “parèixer a un mateix o no parèixer a un mateix”, i de “idees que semblin superiors o no”.  

   Amb aquest mètode gens metòdic, estableix una  absurda classificació de les idees que estan dins la ment (en aquest cas, el cel, la terra, la llum i la calor), segons la qual “ell podia creure ( o sigui, el mètode de poder creure o no poder creure) que, si eren vertaderes, eren unes dependències de la meva naturalesa, en quant que aquesta posseeix alguna perfecció, i,  si no ho eren, procedien del no-res, és a dir, estaven en mi, perquè hi ha en mi qualque defecte. Segons això, les idees de la nostra ment o bé són de la pròpia ment o bé procedeixen del no-res;  quedava establerta la nova categoria no-científica  de la classificació de les idees segons si procedeixen del no-res o no.

   Arribat aquí, En Descartes emprèn el vol cap a la teologia i presenta la primera prova de l’existència de Déu.  No li provoca cap dubte el tema de les idees innates. Dóna per fet que hi ha la idea d’un ser més perfecte, i que aquesta idea no pot procedir del no-res. Així, diu:  ...era cosa manifestament impossible que la dita idea procedís del no-res; i com no hi ha menor repugnància en pensar que allò més perfecte sigui conseqüència i dependència d’allò menys perfecte, que pensar que del no-res esdevingui qualque cosa, no podia tampoc procedir de mi mateix; de manera que sols restava hagués estat posada (la idea) en mi per una naturalesa vertaderament més perfecta que jo, i posseïdora inclusiu de totes les perfeccions de que jo pogués tenir idea; això és, per explicar-ho en una paraula, per Déu.

    Es pot constatar que el mètode d’En Descartes té poc a veure amb la lògica i la geometria. No explica la relació de les idees i el no-res, ni entre la veritat i la perfecció, ni de quina perfecció es tracta a cada moment. Introdueix elements irracionals no propis per a la ciència, com és fer referència a la repugnància intel·lectual i als graus d’aquesta repugnància. Li repugna, diu, però no justifica la seva negació.  En contra de la suposició cartesiana, al regne animal abunden els casos en que els fills són superiors a llurs pares. 

   En referència a si Déu és o no és una idea forjada pels humans – que aquest seria, precisament, el tema de debat - ,  En Cartesius es limita a dir que no podia tampoc procedir de mi mateix. O sigui, podem resumir la miserable argumentació cartesiana: Jo tinc idees, unes que són pròpies meves (de les meves dependències intel·lectuals)i unes altres que jo considero superiors a mi, com les de les perfeccions, les quals no poden procedir de mi ni del no-res; per tant, aquestes idees de perfeccions solament poden procedir d’un ésser supremament perfecte.

   

    En aquesta quarta part, En Cartesius presenta  una segona demostració de l’existència de Déu que pretenia superar l’argument ontològic de N’Anselm.

   L’argument d’En Descartes es basa en l’afirmació de que tota idea de la nostra ment és produïda per una causa proporcional a la idea. Que la idea de Déu és la idea de la cosa més gran possible. Que la idea més gran possible ha de tenir una causa proporcional possible. I que, per tant, la causa proporcional de la idea més gran possible és Déu. I així, quedava demostrat que Déu era la causa de la idea de Déu.

 

     Per suposat ni En Cartesius ni En Tomàs poden explicar què passa quan un hom té, per exemple, una idea politeista, o una concepció atea. Igualment, quina seria la causa de les idees aberrants?

   

   Podem concloure que és just i necessari revisar els llibres text i les enciclopèdies avui sota control de les forces conservadores. Forces conservadores, però s’ha d’afegir que, sovint, unes suposades forces  progressistes també contribueixen  a l’enaltiment de personatges que més aviat foren nefasts.

Largest hairy family

Victor "Larry" Gomez, Gabriel "Danny" Ramos Gomez, Luisa Lilia De Lira Aceves and Jesus Manuel Fajardo Aceves (all Mexico) are four of a family of 19 that span five generations all suffering from the rare condition called Congenital Generalized Hypertrichosis, characterized by excessive facial and torso hair. The women are covered with a light-to-medium coat of hair while the men of the family have thick hair on approximately 98% of their body apart from their hands and feet.

          "War In Front Of Me" - New Chinese Military Video Shows Off Range Of Advanced Weaponry      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A new video produced by China's military that features the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) showing off a wide range of the country's latest military technology has gone viral after its publication to social media on August 1st, the day China commemorated 'Army Day'.

The just over two-minute video, called "I am a Chinese soldier" is an over the top patriotic tribute emphasizing a combination of personal sacrifice, loyalty, and a sense of esprit de corps in belonging to an elite, modernized military. 

The National Interest has provided a translation of the popular Chinese language footage, which is described as follows:

The video is brimful with the grandiosity that is now associated with the military under Xi Jinping: a lot of ammunition is fired, and the very latest in China’s military technology — combat aircraft, a carrier battle group, long-range ballistic missiles, submarines and armored vehicles — is on full, proud, active display.

The video further appeals to a masculine sense of duty and sacrificial hardship as the there's a series of scenes in the first half depicting men saying tearful goodbyes to their children and spouses, after which infantry soldiers give fierce battle cries while waving the communist national flag, interspersed with overhead shots of huge intercontinental ballistic missiles a silo and an aircraft carrier battle group

The narration includes the lines: "Peace behind me, war in front of me. Pick up the steel gun, we must let go of the children."

The National Interest notes the masculine and patriotic appeal of the video

As some watchers have observed, the world depicted in this video is very much a man’s world — there isn’t a single female soldier; the few women who appear are mothers and spouses, tearfully enduring, no doubt with the full patriotism that is expected of them by the Chinese Communist Party, the absences and heart-rending departures of sons and husbands. At times serene and towards the end bombastic, the accompanying soundtrack could have been written by Hans Zimmer (think his majestic score for Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line ).

China has increasingly over the past year attempted to promote an image of itself to international foes and rivals as on a path of overtaking the United States and other world powers in the area of defense technology. 

Screengrab from the Chinese military produced "I am a Chinese soldier"

Meanwhile America's top nuclear commander warned this week that both China and Russia's development of hyperonic weapons constitute a threat that the US deterrent arsenal currently cannot defend against

Air Force Gen. John Hyten warned the two countries are not America's "friends" and that the new military technology threat should be taken with urgency and seriousness.

"You can't call them [Russia and China] our friends if they're building weapons that can destroy the United States of America," Gen. Hyten said.

Below is an English translation of the new video, "I am a Chinese Soldier" via J. Michael Cole for the The National Interest

* * *

The narration (translated from Chinese):

Who am I?

I am the one the mother cannot reach at the door.

I am the wife who is reluctant to hang up the phone.

I am a stranger who dares not approach in the eyes of my son.

I am the concern and pride of my loved ones.

Peace behind me, war in front of me.

Pick up the steel gun, we must let go of the children.

Put on the military uniform, we must give up comfort and ease.

Fighting the battlefield, the character of the man.

From the military to the country, there is no regret in this life.

I am a Chinese soldier.

I am a soldier of the people.

I am the guardian of a good life.


          Quelques nouvelles graphiques... et poétiques.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
 Extraits de cycles (janvier, mars, avril et mai 2018)

Comme régulièrement, des nouvelles en images ET en mots de mon projet de drawing in progress ou de work in progress il me semble que les deux appellations sont valables ici développé sur Tumblr et baptisé Le Horlart à 1,99.

Le Horlart ?... 

Toujours et encore... mais différent de ce blog-ci. Plus précisément, il s'agit d'une variante, disons plutôt... d'une excroissance. Oui, parce que si cette idée de publication quotidienne en prolonge le fil directeur, expérimenter, dessiner-écrire, associer les images et les mots, composer,  accumuler les expériences et les traces d'une recherche littéraire et artistique sans cesse renouvelée dans ses sujets et ses angles de vue, elle a sa propre raison d'être. 

À travers cette idée-là, j'ai souhaité en effet aller vers un autre type de production. D'une part, fondamentalement ludique, elle est "à contraintes", de format en tout premier lieu, mais aussi de sujet, de technique —  et de modalités parfois, suivant une logique de création "oulipienne"* appliquée à l'image. La contrainte quelle qu'elle soit stimule ma créativité. D'autre part, autant que possible, c'est m'essayer à une production... plus brute, c'est-à-dire dessinée à partir de ce qui vient tout de suite jaillissant, dans un cadre prédéfini sans esquisse préalable ou recherche documentaire approfondie.

 Extraits de cycles (octobre, janvier, avril et juillet 2017)

À chacune, à chacun, en visitant librement  les archives de ce projet, d'estimer ce qui est (vraiment) abouti, ce qui relève davantage de l'ébauche d'une idée à creuser plus tard ou ce qui ne soulève aucun commentaire il y en a aussi de cette catégorie-là, que je considère comme mes petits ratés assumés. Pris dans la masse d'images, ils trouvent néanmoins leur place et leur cohérence. 

.... à 1, 99 ? ...

Ce chiffre décimal curieux fait tout simplement référence au prix du bloc de feuilles de papier acheté, il y a plus de deux ans, dans une petite surface, et qui m'a servi de support d'inspiration durant... plus de 790 jours ! Il faut imaginer une sorte de cube en plastique avec, à l'intérieur, des feuillets mobiles blancs. Tout carré, ils ont été la plupart du temps, le support idéal de mon exercice journalier. Car, pour mes illustrations, je choisis prioritairement des feuilles de ce format. 

À d'autres moments, il faut avouer qu'ils ont représenté une certaine gêne : je voyais l'idée à dessiner plus grande que celle jetée sur le papier ; j'aurais voulu utiliser une autre technique moins graphique, plus picturale, incompatible malheureusement avec un papier de 70 g/ ! J'aurais voulu percer, couper, parfois creuser à l'intérieur de ce support. 

Il a fallu faire avec, contre, pour, dans cet espace de 9 cm x 9 cm de côté, invariablement blanc et fin. Il a fallu user de stratégies pour éviter la répétition et (ma)la lassitude.

... Projet ?...

Projet, j'ai parlé de projet ? À savoir : 
1 Un début. Sous le coup d'une soudaine inspiration individuelle ou d'une profonde conviction personnelle de faire le bien, le beau, le bon, commencer, foncer.
2 Un milieu. Un déroulement (approprié), progressif, tendant vers un résultat (même abstrait), qui écarte d'un geste sûr les remises en question (matinales, intestines et vaines) venant ainsi confirmer l'intuition de départ. 
3Un résultat. Peut-être beau. Fort. Drôle. Ou anodin, gratuit. En tout cas, visible, compréhensible, traduisible (exploitable ! ) à différents niveaux. Et une fin (car il faut que cela se conclut, à un moment don.)
Extraits de cycles (août, septembre, février et mai 2017)

Le début ? J'en ai maintes fois parlé. Le milieu ? Chacune, chacun peut aller voir dans mes archives, comment se succèdent les images-mots, jour après jour et mois après mois. Le résultat ? L'intérêt premier est de pouvoir se lancer un défi à chaque fois renouvelé et de s'y tenir, tout en restant attentive aux micro-variations qui s'opèrent dans le traitement graphique et thématique à l'intérieur du même sujet et des évolutions écarts, progressive maîtrise ou échec de ma pratique et de mon regard, en général.  

Disposer de plusieurs centaines de dessins (portraits, études, objets, personnages, végétaux, matières...) regroupés dans plus de 24 carnets virtuels, composés eux-mêmes de 29 à 31 productions, présentées dans leur ressemblance et leur hétérogénéité est intéressant et émouvant : ces petits dessins de poche sont pour moi comme la trace persistante et marquante d'un événement, d'une sorte d'histoire à épisodes.

Que faire de tout cela ? Élaborer une composition plus "ambitieuse", à partir d'un choix d'images, celles-ci seraient considérées, en définitive, comme des avant-projets ? Ou bien, en mettre en page, en scène, ces contenus variés dans un livre fait à la main, un fanzine, ou pour une publication en autoédition assistée telle qu'un magazine ou un bel imagier ? Reprendre certaines images et les développer sur des produits dérivés, sus au motif fantaisiste ! ? Ou bien encore, tout laisser en l'état, c'est-à-dire consultable à l'envi par celles et ceux que la magie de la recherche hypertextuelle ou par mots-clés conduira jusqu'à ce projet  ? Et pourquoi pas collaborer avec un(e) tatoueur(euse), un(e) céramiste, un(e) graveur(euse)... ? Que de perspectives !

Extraits de cycle (août, septembre, mai et octobre 2016)

... La fin ?

Oui, celle du dessin journalier thématique, mais PAS celle des carnets en ligne...

*Précision : l'adjectif "oulipienne" vient de OuLiPo, Ouvroir de Littérature Potentielle. J'aime à penser que ses principe créatifs (nombreuses pistes d'expérimentations littéraires, mises en œuvre à l'origine par Raymond Queneau et François Le Lionnais) ont un peu influencé ma réflexion en amont de ce travail de longue haleine, tout comme sans doute, la création sérielle développée par le groupe d'artistes Support/ Surface (en particulier Claude Viallat),  la place de la récurrence chez l'artiste et illustrateur Paul Cox, ou certains imagiers et abécédaire pour la Jeunesse..

Parmi les contraintes que je me suis données, il y a notamment : avec une seule couleur (ou avec les mêmes couleurs), la suite (un motif est répété ou un même détail relie deux images entre elles), à partir de la même forme, le rapport vide/ plein, la liste, le portrait chinois...
