The Second National Data Science Bowl, a data science competition where the goal was to automatically determine cardiac volumes from MRI scans, has just ended. We participated with a team of 4 members from Ghent University and finished 2nd!

The team kunsthart (artificial heart in English) consisted of Ira Korshunova, Jeroen Burms, Jonas Degrave, 3 PhD students, and professor Joni Dambre. It’s also a follow-up of last year’s team ≋ Deep Sea ≋, which finished in first place for the First National Data Science Bowl.

Overview

This blog post is going to be long, here is a clickable overview of different sections.

Introduction

The problem

The goal of this year’s Data Science Bowl was to estimate minimum (end-systolic) and maximum (end-diastolic) volumes of the left ventricle from a set of MRI-images taken over one heartbeat. These volumes are used by practitioners to compute an ejection fraction: fraction of outbound blood pumped from the heart with each heartbeat. This measurement can predict a wide range of cardiac problems. For a skilled cardiologist analysis of MRI scans can take up to 20 minutes, therefore, making this process automatic is obviously useful.

Unlike the previous Data Science Bowl, which had very clean and voluminous data set, this year’s competition required a lot more focus on dealing with inconsistencies in the way the very limited number of data points were gathered. As a result, most of our efforts went to trying out different ways to preprocess and combine the different data sources.

The data

The dataset consisted of over a thousand patients. For each patient, we were given a number of 30-frame MRI videos in the DICOM format, showing the heart during a single cardiac cycle (i.e. a single heartbeat). These videos were taken in different planes including the multiple short-axis views (SAX), a 2-chamber view (2Ch), and a 4-chamber view (4Ch). The SAX views, whose planes are perpendicular to the long axis of the left ventricle, form a series of slices that (ideally) cover the entire heart. The number of SAX slices ranged from 1 to 23. Typically, the region of interest (ROI) is only a small part of the entire image. Below you can find a few of SAX slices and Ch2, Ch4 views from one of the patients. Red circles on the SAX images indicate the ROI’s center (later we will explain how to find it), for Ch2 and Ch4 they specify the location of SAX slices projected on the corresponding view.

2Ch 4Ch

The DICOM files also contained a bunch of metadata. Some of the metadata fields, like PixelSpacing and ImageOrientationm were absolutely invaluable to us. The metadata also specified patient’s age and sex.

For each patient in the train set, two labels were provided: the systolic volume and the diastolic volume. From what we gathered (link), these were obtained by cardiologists by manually performing a segmentation on the SAX slices, and feeding these segmentations to a program that computes the minimal and maximal heart chamber volumes. The cardiologists didn’t use the 2Ch or 4Ch images to estimate the volumes, but for us they proved to be very useful.

Combining these multiple data sources can be difficult, however for us dealing with inconsistencies in the data was more challenging. Some examples: the 4Ch slice not being provided for some patients, one patient with less than 30 frames per MRI video, couple of patients with only a handful of SAX slices, patients with SAX slices taken in weird locations and orientations.

The evaluation

Given a patient’s data, we were asked to output a cumulative distribution function over the volume, ranging from 0 to 599 mL, for both systole and diastole. The models were scored by a Continuous Ranked Probability Score (CRPS) error metric, which computes the average squared distance between the predicted CDF and a Heaviside step function representing the real volume.

An additional interesting novelty of this competition was the two stage process. In the first stage, we were given a training set of 500 patients with a public test set of 200 patients. In the final week we were required to submit our model and afterwards the organizers released the test data of 440 patients and labels for 200 patients from the public test set. We think the goal was to compensate for the small dataset and prevent people from optimizing against the test set through visual inspection of every part of their algorithm. Hand-labeling in the first stage was allowed on the training dataset only, for the second stage it was also allowed for 200 validation patients.

The solution: traditional image processing, convnets, and dealing with outliers

In our solution, we combined traditional image processing approaches, which find the region of interest (ROI) in each slice, with convolutional neural networks, which perform the mapping from the extracted image patches to the predicted volumes. Given the very limited number of training samples, we tried combat overfitting by restricting our models to combine the different data sources in predefined ways, as opposed to having them learn how to do the aggregation. Unlike many other contestants, we performed no hand-labelling .

Pre-processing and data augmentation

The provided images have varying sizes and resolutions, and do not only show the heart, but the entire torso of the patient. Our preprocessing pipeline made the images ready to be fed to a convolutional network by going through the following steps:

  • applying a zoom factor such that all images have the same resolution in millimeters
  • finding the region of interest and extracting a patch centered around it
  • data augmentation
  • contrast normalization

To find the correct zooming factor, we made use of the PixelSpacing metadata field, which specifies the image resolution. Further we will explain our approach to ROI detection and data augmentation.

Detecting the Region Of Interest through image segmentation techniques

We used classical computer vision techniques to find the left ventricle in the SAX slices. For each patient, the center and width of the ROI were determined by combining the information of all the SAX slices provided. The figure below shows an example of the result.

ROI extraction steps
ROI extraction steps

First, as was suggested in the Fourier based tutorial, we exploit the fact that each slice sequence captures one heartbeat and use Fourier analyses to extract an image that captures the maximal activity at the corresponding heartbeat frequency (same figure, second image).

From these Fourier images, we then extracted the center of the left ventricle by combining the Hough circle transform with a custom kernel-based majority voting approach across all SAX slices. First, for each fourier image (resulting from a single sax slice), the highest scoring Hough circles for a range of radii were found, and from all of those, the highest scoring ones were retained. , and the range of radii are metaparameters that severely affect the robustness of the ROI detected and were optimised manually. The third image in the figure shows an example of the best circles for one slice.

Finally, a ‘likelihood surface’ (rightmost image in figure above) was obtained by combining the centers and scores of the selected circles for all slices. Each circle center was used as the center for a Gaussian kernel, which was scaled with the circle score, and all these kernels were added. The maximum across this surface was selected as the center of the ROI. The width and height of the bounding box of all circles with centers within a maximal distance (another hyperparameter) of the ROI center were used as bounds for the ROI or to create an ellipsoidal mask as shown in the figure.

Given these ROIs in the SAX slices, we were able to find the ROIs in the 2Ch and 4Ch slices by projecting the SAX ROI centers onto the 2Ch and 4Ch planes.

Data augmentation

As always when using convnets on a problem with few training examples, we used tons of data augmentation. Some special precautions were needed, since we had to preserve the surface area. In terms of affine transformations, this means that only skewing, rotation and translation was allowed. We also added zooming, but we had to correct our volume labels when doing so! This helped to make the distirbution of labels more diverse.

Another augmentation here came in the form of shifting the images over the time axis. While systole was often found in the beginning of a sequence, this was not always the case. Augmenting this, by rolling the image tensor over the time axis, made the resulting model more robust against this noise in the dataset, while providing even more augmentation of our data.

Data augmentation was applied during the training phase to increase the number of training examples. We also applied the augmentations during the testing phase, and averaged predictions across the augmented versions of the same data sample.

Network architectures

We used convolutional neural networks to learn a mapping from the extracted image patches to systolic and diastolic volumes. During the competition, we played around a lot with both minor and major architectural changes. Our base architecture for most of our models was based on VGG-16.

As we already mentioned, we trained different models which can deal with different kinds of patients. There are roughly four different kinds of models we trained: single slice models, patient models, 2Ch models and 4Ch models.

Single slice models

Single slice models are models that take a single SAX slice as an input, and try to predict the systolic and diastolic volumes directly from it. The 30 frames were fed to the network as 30 different input channels. The systolic and diastolic networks shared the convolutional layers, but the dense layers were separated. The output of the network could be either a 600-way softmax (followed by a cumulative sum), or the mean and standard deviation of a Gaussian (followed by a layer computing the cdf of the Gaussian).

Although these models obviously have too little information to make a decent volume estimation, they benefitted hugely from test-time augmentation (TTA). During TTA, the model gets slices with different augmentations, and the outputs are averaged across augmenations and slices for each patient. Although this way of aggregating over SAX slices is suboptimal, it proved to be very robust to the relative positioning of the SAX slices, and is as such applicable to all patients.

Our single best single slice model achieved a local validation score of 0.0157 (after TTA), which was a reliable estimate for the public leaderboard score for these models. The approximate architecture of the slice models is shown on the following figure.

2Ch and 4Ch models

These models have a much more global view on the left ventricle of the heart than single SAX slice models. The 2Ch models also have the advantage of being applicable to every patient. Not every patient had a 4Ch slice. We used the same VGG-inspired architecture for these models. Individually, they achieved a similar validation score (0.0156) as was achieved by averaging over multiple sax slices. By ensembling only single slice, 2Ch and 4Ch models, we were able to achieve a score of 0.0131 on the public leaderboard.

Patient models

As opposed to single slice models, patient models try to make predictions based on the entire stack of (up to 25) SAX slices. In our first approaches to these models, we tried to process each slice separately using a VGG-like single slice network, followed by feeding the results to an overarching RNN in an ordered fashion. However, these models tended to overfit badly. Our solution to this problem consists of a clever way to merge predictions from multiple slices. Instead of having the network learn how to compute the volume based on the results of the individual slices, we designed a layer which combines the areas of consecutive cross-sections of the heart using a truncated cone approximation.

Basically, the slice models have to estimate the area (and standard deviation thereof) of the cross-section of the heart in a given slice . For each pair of consecutive slices and , we estimate the volume of the heart between them as , where is the distance between the slices. The total volume is then given by .

Ordering the SAX slices and finding the distance between them was achieved through looking at the SliceLocation metadata fields, but this field was not very reliable in finding the distance between slices, neither was the SliceThickness. We looked for the two slices that were furthest apart, drew a line between them, and projected every other slice onto this line. This way, we estimated the distance between two slices ourselves.

Our best single model achieved a local validation score of 0.0105 using this approach. This was no longer a good leaderboard estimation, since our local validation set contained relatively few outliers compared to the public leaderboard in the first round. The model had the following architecture:

* The first dimension is the batch size, i.e. the number of patients, the second dimension is the number of slices. If a patient had fewer slices, we padded the input and omitted the extra slices in the volume estimation.

Oftentimes, we did not train patient models from scratch. We found that initializing patient models with single slice models helps against overfitting, and severely reduces training time of the patient model.

The architecture we described above was one of the best for us. To diversify our models, some of the good things we tried include:

  • processing each frame separately, and taking the minimum and maximum at some point in the network to compute systole and diastole
  • sharing some of the dense layers between the systole and diastole networks as well
  • using discs to approximate the volume, instead of truncated cones
  • cyclic rolling layers
  • leaky RELUs
  • maxout units

One downside of the patient model approach was that these models assume that SAX slices nicely range from one end of the heart to the other. This was trivially not true for patients with very few (< 5) slices, but it was harder to detect automatically for some other outlier cases as in figure below, where something is wrong with the images or the ROI algorithm fails.

Training and ensembling

Error function. At the start of the competition, we experimented with various error functions, but we found optimising CRPS directly to work best.

Training algorithm. To train the parameters of our models, we used the Adam update rule (Kingma and Ba).

Initialization. We initialised all filters and dense layers orthogonally (Saxe et al.). Biases were initialized to small positive values to have more gradients at the lower layer in the beginning of the optimization. At the Gaussian output layers, we initialized the biases for mu and sigma such that initial predictions of the untrained network would fall in a sensible range.

Regularization. Since we had a low number of patients, we needed considerable regularization to prevent our models from overfitting. Our main approach was to augment the data and to add a considerable amount of dropout.

Validation

Since the trainset was already quite small, we kept the validation set small as well (83 patients). Despite this, our validation score remained pretty close to the leaderboard score. Also, in cases where it didn’t, it helped us identify issues in our models, namely problematic cases in the test set which were not represented in our validation set. We noticed for instance that quite some of our patient models had problems with patients with too few SAX slices (< 5).

Selectively train and predict

By looking more closely at the validation scores, we observed that most of the accumulated error was obtained by wrongly predicting only a couple of such outlier cases. At some point, being able to handle only a handful of these meant the difference between a leaderboard score of 0.0148 and 0.0132!

To mitigate such issues, we set up our framework such that each individual model could choose not to train on or predict a certain patient. For instance, models on patients’ SAX slices could choose not to predict patients with too few SAX slices, models which use the 4Ch slice would not predict for patients who don’t have this slice. We extended this idea further by developing expert models, which only trained and predicted for patients with either a small or a big heart (as determined by the ROI detection step). Further down the pipeline, our ensembling scripts would then take these non-predictions into account.

Ensembling and dealing with outliers

We ended up creating about 250 models throughout the competition. However, we knew that some of these models were not very robust to certain outliers or patients whose ROI we could not accurately detect. We came up with two different ensembling strategies that would deal with these kind of issues.

Our first ensembling technique followed the following steps:

  1. For each patient, we select the best way to average over the test time augmentations. Slice models often preferred a geometric averaging of distributions, whereas in general arithmetic averaging worked better for patient models.
  2. We average over the models by calculating each prediction’s KL-divergence from the average distribution, and the cross entropy of each single sample of the distribution. This means that models which are further away from the average distribution get more weight (since they are more certain). It also means samples of the distribution closer to the median-value of 0.5 get more weight. Each model also receives a model-specific weight, which is determined by optimizing these weights over the validation set.
  3. Since not all models predict all patients, it is possible for a model in the ensemble to not predict a certain patient. In this case, a new ensemble without these models is optimized, especially for this single patient. The method to do this is described in step 2.
  4. This ensemble is then used on every patient on the test-set. However, when a certain model’s average prediction disagrees too much with the average prediction of all models, the model is thrown out of the ensemble, and a new ensemble is optimized for this patient, as described in step 2. This meant that about ~75% of all patients received a new, ‘personalized’ ensemble.

Our second way of ensembling involves comparing an ensemble that is suboptimal, but robust to outliers, to an ensemble that is not robust to them. This approach is especially interesting, since it does not need a validation set to predict the test patients. It follows the following steps:

  1. Again, for each patient, we select the best way to average over the test time augmentations again.
  2. We combine the models by using a weighted average on the predictions, with the weights summing to one. These weights are determined by optimising them on the validation set. In case not all models provide a prediction for a certain patient, it is dropped for that patient and the weights of the other models are rescaled such that they again sum to one. This ensemble is not robust to outliers, since it contains patient models.
  3. We combine all 2Ch, 4Ch and slice models in a similar fashion. This ensemble is robust to outliers, but only contains less accurate models.
  4. We detect outliers by finding the patients where the two ensembles disagree the most. We measure disagreement using CRPS. If the CRPS exceeds a certain threshold for a patient, we assume it to be an outlier. We chose this threshold to be 0.02.
  5. We retrain the weights for the first ensemble, but omit the outliers from the validation set. We choose this ensemble to generate predictions for most of the patients, but choose the robust ensemble for the outliers.

Following this approach, we detected three outliers in the test set during phase one of the competition. Closer inspection revealed that for all of them either our ROI detection failed, or the SAX slices were not nicely distributed across the heart. Both ways of ensembling achieved similar scores on the public leaderboard. (0.0110)

Second round submissions

For the second round of the competition, we were allowed to retrain our models on the new labels (+ 200 patients). We were also allowed to plan two submissions. Of course, it was impossible to retrain all of our models during this single week. For this reason, we chose to only train our 44 best models, according to our ensembling scripts.

For our first submission, we splitted of a new validation set. The resulting models were combined using our first ensembling strategy.

For our second submission, we trained our models on the entire training set (i.e. there was no validation split). We assembled them using the second ensembling method. Since we had no validation set to optimise the weights of the ensemble, we computed the weights by training an ensemble on the models we trained with a validation split, and transferred them over.

Software and hardware

We used Lasagne, Python, Numpy and Theano to implement our solution, in combination with the cuDNN library. We also used PyCUDA for a few custom kernels. We made use of scikit-image for pre-processing and augmentation.

We trained our models on the NVIDIA GPUs that we have in the lab, which include GTX TITAN X, GTX 980, GTX 680 and Tesla K40 cards. We would like to thank Frederick Godin and Elias Vansteenkiste for lending us a few extra GPUs in the last week of the competition.

Conclusion

In this competition, we tried out different ways to preprocess data and combine information from different data sources, and thus, we learned a lot in this aspect. However, we feel that there is still a room for improvement. For example, we observed that most of our error still hails from a select group of patients. These include the ones for which our ROI extraction fails. In hindsight, hand-labeling the training data and training a network to do the ROI extraction would be a better approach, but we wanted to sidestep doing a lot of this kind of manual effort as much as possible. In the end, labeling the data would probably have been less time intensive.

(C-STEM), in collaboration with the Harambee Art Gallery, unveiled an unprecedented community public art project that they hope will bridge the digital divide. This collaboration is the brainchild of Dr. Reagan Flowers, who is the founder of C-STEM. Dr. Flowers’ vision for this project was to create a free little library, beautify the community with public art, close the digital divide and create a safer neighborhood. “This project is living proof that the act of doing one thing can pay dividends beyond anything you ever imagined,” said Dr. Flowers. My former students from Jack Yates chose their future when they accepted the challenge to build a robot. That single choice made what seemed to be impossible, possible. And now, 18 years later, those robots are still inspiring creativity and innovation, and are giving back to the community far beyond their robotics competitions.” Harambee Art Gallery’s Charles Washington – a noted Third Ward environmental artist – received the commission for the public structure, which includes a Free Little Library with a “take-a-book, leave-a-book” policy. This beautification project is being housed at the C-STEM headquarters, located at 3226 Alabama St., in Houston’s historic Third Ward. Washington made the C-STEM Free Little Library Public Art Project from Sea Turtle sculptures that were used as canvases by PreK-12th grade students, and incorporated robot parts from Jack Yates High School students whoread more

          Yelima: Занимаюсь потолком сама.      Cache   Translate Page      

 

 

Игорь положил потолочные панели в новом дострое, а сам занялся укладкой толи на крыше,(тоже новый добавочный кусок крыши).


А мне сказал так: ''хочешь-жди ещё с недельку, когда я всё не улице доделаю и утеплю. Потом возьмусь за потолок.
А если невтерпёшь-давай сама!''

Ну, мне захотелось попробовать самой справиться.
-----------------------
Итак, первый раз в жизни пробую декор потолка.

 Швы от панелей немного заметны, поэтому надо их как-то декоративно завуалировать.

Просмотрела несколько мастер-классов о декоре потолков-штукатуркой, и решила -рискнуть!

Купила в магазине стройматериалов, вот такой валик:
 



Напоминает старое и жёсткое мочало из лыка.

Получается эффект КРОШКИ, вот такой:


Вполне красиво получается, и швы между панелями совсем пропали!

---------------------------

Попробовала я и всяко по-другому поизвращаться с потолком.

Например, стала рисовать на сырой штукатурке, разные кренделя-руками:


Тоже красиво было бы, но...
 в последний момент я подумала, что такой изукрас потолка будет диктовать и определённый дизайн-всему остальному в комнате.

Это может быть либо ЭКЛЕКТИКА, либо стиль АРИСТОКРАТИЧЕСКИЙ, с вензелями и завитками...

А у меня декор к этой комнате припасён совершенно иной.

С моей тенденцией к переменчивости декора и объектов в доме-я должна буду, значит, и декор потолка тоже менять каждый год?!

Чё-то эта мысль меня оттолкнула от кренделей на потолке...

Попробовала ещё ложкой делать заломы на штукатурке, типа мелких волн- и тоже идею отставила в сторону.
Может, для ванной? Там у меня будет морской стиль. Сфоткать забыла.
-------------------------------------

 КРОШКА-это нейтральный вариант, который будет сочетаться с чем угодно.

Всё же решила сделать крошенистый потолок, купленным валиком:

 

Это уже второй, окончательный слой.

          Arsenal, West Ham and Manchester City can’t find enough bankers to fill their grounds      Cache   Translate Page      

The Arsenal Supporters’ Trust (AST) says every empty seat at the Emirates is “a tragedy for those who want to watch but can’t get in”. Too true. The suits buy the pricey seats then can’t be arsed to attend. And it could be a scam. Just as Facebook promises to show your advert to a defined number of accounts, a large proportion of which turn out to be operated by robots not humans, thus making the deal much more costly per head than advertised, Arsenal say the official average crowd for home games last season was 57,054. Balls, says the AST. It says the real average attendance was around 46,000. Any advertisers and sponsors are paying potentially 20% over the odds to reach the fans.

The BBC has  more:

West Ham: Newham council says the average attendance at West Ham was 42,779 based on the 12 games it attended – which is 12,530 fans fewer than the club’s season average figure of 55,309.

Manchester City: Greater Manchester Police’s average figures were 7,482 lower than club figures, again based on 12 games.

Southampton: Hampshire Police figures were an average of 4,246 fans lower than figures issued by the club.

Tottenham: Brent Council says crowds at Wembley Stadium were on average 3,740 less than the club’s stated numbers.

Chelsea: Hammersmith and Fulham council says its average was 3,505 fans lower than club numbers, based on six games.

And the most honest club whose figures were shared with the BBC was Manchester United. Trafford Council and Greater Manchester Police both said United’s published attendance figures matched its own, based on 12 games.

Why does it happen?

Most teams in the Premier League choose to publicise the number of tickets sold for a game rather than the number of people actually in the stadium. That means they include season ticket holders who don’t attend, and complimentary tickets that are not used.

If only you could still pay on the gate and just rock up with your mates. It’s all so corporate and organised. Where is the next generation of fans coming from?

          Analysis and Structure Optimization of Radial Halbach Permanent Magnet Couplings for Deep Sea Robots      Cache   Translate Page      
Permanent magnet couplings (PMCs) can convert the dynamic seal of transmission shaft into a static seal, which will significantly improve the transmission efficiency and reliability. Therefore, the radial Halbach PMC in this paper is suitable as the transmission mechanism of deep sea robots. A two-segment Halbach array is adopted in the radial PMC, and the segment arc coefficient can be adjustable. This paper presents the general analytical solutions of the distinctive Halbach PMCs based on scalar magnetic potential and Maxwell stress tensor. The analytical solutions of magnetic field are in good agreement with 2-D finite element analysis (FEA) results. In addition, an initial prototype of the radial Halbach PMC has been fabricated, and the analytical solutions of magnetic torque are compared with 3-D FEA and experiment results. This paper also establishes an optimization procedure for PMCs based on the combination of 3-D FEA, Back Propagation Neural Network (BPNN), and Genetic Algorithm (GA). 3-D FEA is performed to calculate the pull-out torque of the samples from Latin hypercube sampling, then BPNN is used to describe the relationship between the optimization variables and pull-out torque. Finally, GA is applied to solve the optimization problem, and the optimized scheme is proved to be more reasonable with the FEA method.

          I Absolutely Suck at Sleeping, and This Is What Finally Helped Me Rest      Cache   Translate Page      

I'm very, very bad at sleeping. I can't recall if it's always been that way or if I've just become incredibly unlucky in recent years, but nevertheless, as much as I love sleep, sleep doesn't love me back. I can actually fall asleep really easily (and by that I mean I can fall asleep just about any time, anywhere), but I never sleep soundly and rarely feel well-rested. I admittedly haven't tried many things to help me sleep because I never wanted to rely on something like a sleeping pill. Instead, I decided to give the soothing benefits of lavender a try for a week to see if I'd notice any change.

I fall asleep really easily, but I never sleep soundly and rarely feel well-rested.

If you're unfamiliar, lavender essential oil can be used for a variety of things, including inducing restful sleep. Studies have shown that the scent of lavender can improve insomnia. One study noted that lavender may work better in younger subjects and among women.

For six nights, I worked my way through a variety of lavender products and saw mixed results. For two of the nights, I showered with lavender body wash and soap right before bedtime. Another three nights, I tried Lush Sleepy Lotion ($10), which is made with lavender, and lavender essential oil on my hands and feet. And on the final night, I took a bath with a Lush Ickle Baby Bot ($5), which may be made for kids, but what adult doesn't want a robot-shaped bath bomb?

What Worked and What Didn't

Showering with lavender soap and body wash, or bathing with a lavender bath bomb, didn't seem to leave me any more rested. As always, I was able to fall asleep easily, around my usual time of midnight, but woke up constantly throughout the night. I felt like I might have been sleeping more deeply, but I still woke up feeling the same as I usually do.

The nights I used the essential oil and Sleepy Lotion seemed to be more restful than I typically experience. Lush recommends slathering your skin in the Sleepy Lotion, but because I hate lotion (sorry, not sorry), I only put it on the top half of my body, then washed it off my hands. Then I rubbed the oil on the bottoms of my feet and put socks on - a friend swears by this method - and left a little residue on my hands. I did have to be careful with how much I used because my very needy cats not only sleep with me but also like to rub their heads on things and then lick their fur later, and I didn't want to run the risk.

I didn't try the Sleepy Lotion or essential oil separately, so I can't be sure if one worked more than the other, or if the magical combination is my saving grace, but I'll keep trying it out to see.

What I'll Do Next

There were a lot of variables at play during my week of lavender, so I think I need to do some more testing before I make a firm call on how much it helped. The nights I showered with the body wash happened to be after very stressful workdays, and I can never sleep soundly when I'm stressed out. The days I used the Sleepy Lotion and essential oil were weekend nights or nights my cats decided to leave me alone during the night.

Now that I have the Sleepy Lotion, though, and the essential oil, it's easy enough to keep using them in different ways on different parts of my body to see if they continue to be effective. If nothing else, I got a few more nights of restful sleep than I usually do, and I'll take whatever I can get. More importantly, there's no harm in experimenting with something so natural.


          Samsung Opens Artificial Intelligence Research Centre In New York      Cache   Translate Page      

The smartphone industry owes a lot to AI(Artificial Intelligence) , especially when it comes to the new age revolutionary smartphones. And it seems like Samsung is keen to strengthen its hold on the field of AI to keep introducing better smartphones. Samsung Electronics Co has now launched its sixth AI research centre in the New York City. On Sunday, the tech giant announced that the research centre will mainly focus on robotics.

Samsung has Artificial Intelligence research centres in five countries including Russia, Canada, Britain, Silicon Valley in the US and its home country, South Korea. The new AI centre in New York will be led by Daniel D. Lee, Executive Vice President of Samsung Research. Lee, who joined the company last summer, is also a highly acclaimed AI robotics expert.

This move to open another AI research centre in New York seems to serve two purposes for Samsung. The company will now have access to a huge talent pool in New York, while being in close proximity with leading academic universities.

H. Sebastian Seung, a renowned neuroscientist and Chief Research Scientist of Samsung Electronics, will also be at the helm of the new research centre. Apart from this, Seung will help them identify areas for further growth opportunities.

Creating Value For Customers

The new research centre is aimed at creating better products by tapping into the unequivocal power of AI. This research centre, along with the other five centres, will enable the company to offer more value products to the customers. In fact, earlier this year the company affirmed its plan to expand its AI research efforts by soliciting the services of nearly 1000 AI specialists by 2020.

Samsung said that AI owes its wonderful achievements to technologies like neural networks. Further they  asserted their intention to be a unanimous part of this new era of AI.

Do these claims mean that Samsung is gearing up to prove its indisputable mettle in the field of Artificial Intelligence?

Это цитата сообщения Васмак Оригинальное сообщение

Осень – прекрасное время года, наполненное таинственностью и волшебством, воспоминаниями и переживаниями, радостью и грустью, счастьем и красотой. Природа осенью полна неповторимым разнообразием цветов и красок, что испокон веков вдохновляет художников и поэтов, а теперь и фотографов, стремящихся в своих работах выразить те невообразимые чувства, которые дарит чудесная осень.                                                                                       Недаром многие известные поэты и художники создавали свои лучшие произведения литературы и живописи именно в это время года. Осень способна по-разному влиять на людей, для одних, осень – это время раздумий, грусти, испытывающих острое чувство одиночества, для других это пора радости и счастья, ощущающих прилив энергии и сил, а для кого-то это время надежд и поиска жизненного смысла.

Осень — это загадочное время года, пленяющее красотой осыпающихся листьев, ласковым пением птиц и волшебными природными пейзажами. Как прекрасно в тихий, солнечный осенний денёк пройтись не спеша по парку, подбрасывая ногами яркие россыпи листьев, побродить по лесу, вдыхая свежий воздух и насладиться неземной красотой природы чудесного и загадочного времени года – осени.

          I Absolutely Suck at Sleeping, and This Is What Finally Helped Me Rest      Cache   Translate Page      

I'm very, very bad at sleeping. I can't recall if it's always been that way or if I've just become incredibly unlucky in recent years, but nevertheless, as much as I love sleep, sleep doesn't love me back. I can actually fall asleep really easily (and by that I mean I can fall asleep just about any time, anywhere), but I never sleep soundly and rarely feel well-rested. I admittedly haven't tried many things to help me sleep because I never wanted to rely on something like a sleeping pill. Instead, I decided to give the soothing benefits of lavender a try for a week to see if I'd notice any change.

I fall asleep really easily, but I never sleep soundly and rarely feel well-rested.

If you're unfamiliar, lavender essential oil can be used for a variety of things, including inducing restful sleep. Studies have shown that the scent of lavender can improve insomnia. One study noted that lavender may work better in younger subjects and among women.

For six nights, I worked my way through a variety of lavender products and saw mixed results. For two of the nights, I showered with lavender body wash and soap right before bedtime. Another three nights, I tried Lush Sleepy Lotion ($10), which is made with lavender, and lavender essential oil on my hands and feet. And on the final night, I took a bath with a Lush Ickle Baby Bot ($5), which may be made for kids, but what adult doesn't want a robot-shaped bath bomb?

What Worked and What Didn't

Showering with lavender soap and body wash, or bathing with a lavender bath bomb, didn't seem to leave me any more rested. As always, I was able to fall asleep easily, around my usual time of midnight, but woke up constantly throughout the night. I felt like I might have been sleeping more deeply, but I still woke up feeling the same as I usually do.

The nights I used the essential oil and Sleepy Lotion seemed to be more restful than I typically experience. Lush recommends slathering your skin in the Sleepy Lotion, but because I hate lotion (sorry, not sorry), I only put it on the top half of my body, then washed it off my hands. Then I rubbed the oil on the bottoms of my feet and put socks on - a friend swears by this method - and left a little residue on my hands. I did have to be careful with how much I used because my very needy cats not only sleep with me but also like to rub their heads on things and then lick their fur later, and I didn't want to run the risk.

I didn't try the Sleepy Lotion or essential oil separately, so I can't be sure if one worked more than the other, or if the magical combination is my saving grace, but I'll keep trying it out to see.

What I'll Do Next

There were a lot of variables at play during my week of lavender, so I think I need to do some more testing before I make a firm call on how much it helped. The nights I showered with the body wash happened to be after very stressful workdays, and I can never sleep soundly when I'm stressed out. The days I used the Sleepy Lotion and essential oil were weekend nights or nights my cats decided to leave me alone during the night.

Now that I have the Sleepy Lotion, though, and the essential oil, it's easy enough to keep using them in different ways on different parts of my body to see if they continue to be effective. If nothing else, I got a few more nights of restful sleep than I usually do, and I'll take whatever I can get. More importantly, there's no harm in experimenting with something so natural.

I love the giant SdJ as robot, but do we really get the KKK as a playable faction here?

Though the white hoods go back much further than the KKK, surely there is some cultural blindness for bringing such a blatant symbol of hate onto the cover. Am I the only one who feels this way?

Just picked up the E4 version of the game and one robot card was missing (only 19 out of 20).
After making sure that no two cards were stuck together I went to my trusty BGG to check for pictures of the complete set of robot cards. No joy.

So. Any helpful geeks out there willing to snap a picture of the complete set so I can print/sleeve the missing card?

          UstEK: Упражнение для позвоночника «Золотая рыбка»      Cache   Translate Page      

Это цитата сообщения Koblenz Оригинальное сообщение

7

 

Малоподвижный образ жизни — бич нашего времени. Люди полдня сидят на работе, потом уставшие и обессиленные приходят домой и там тоже стараются как можно быстрее присесть или даже прилечь. На тех, кто бегает по утрам или совершает пешие прогулки по парку, многие смотрят с недоумением или, наоборот, с завистью. Оправдания себе, любимым, придуманы давным-давно: «то лапы ломит, по хвост отваливается». Может, вместо того чтобы поддаваться собственным болезням, лучше их излечить? Упражнение «Золотая рыбка» — именно то, что тебе нужно! Регулярные ежедневные занятия — и твоя мечта стать здоровым осуществится!

 

Польза:

  • нормализация кровообращения;
  • освобождение зажатых сосудов и нервов;
  • регулировка работы сердца, печени, почек и мозга;
  • очищение кожи;
  • снятие нервного напряжения и стресса;
  • исправление осанки.

Растяжка перед упражнением:

  1. Ложись на пол или другую ровную и твердую поверхность.
  2. Закинь руки за голову и постарайся вытянуться во всю длину. Ноги тоже тяни!
  3. Прижми пятки и бедра к полу, а носки направь на себя.
  4. Растягивай позвоночник 5–7 секунд.
  5. Поочередно тянись в разные стороны, растягивая позвоночник, словно канат, и одновременно тянись пяткой правой ноги вперед, а руками в противоположную сторону, считая до семи.
  6. Повтори то же самое с левой пяткой.8/jemchyjinka.ru/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/8-1-330x165.jpg#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" target="_blank#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000">https://jemchyjinka.ru/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/8-1-330x165.jpg 330w" style="box-sizing: border-box; border-style: none; height: auto; max-width: 100%; vertical-align: middle;" width="600" />

Упражнение «Золотая рыбка»

  1. Положение не меняй, руки за головой. Сомкнутые ладони находятся под шейными позвонками.
  2. Ноги плотно прижми к полу, носки — на себя.
  3. Начинай вибрировать телом справа налево, представляя что ты — рыбка, плывущая и резвящаяся в воде. Вибрации выполняй в течение 1–3 минут.7/jemchyjinka.ru/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/7-1-330x165.jpg#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" target="_blank#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000">https://jemchyjinka.ru/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/7-1-330x165.jpg 330w" style="box-sizing: border-box; border-style: none; height: auto; max-width: 100%; vertical-align: middle;" width="600" />

Советы

  1. Во время выполнения упражнения позвоночник прижимай к полу.
  2. Носки — на себя, тело двигай вправо-влево, а не вверх-вниз. Для удобства можешь приподнять затылок и ступни ног.
  3. Чтобы достичь максимального эффекта — делай упражнение утром и вечером, начиная с 1 минуты и постепенно доведя время до 3 минут.
    Результат будет ощутим уже через несколько занятий!

В борьбе с недугами главное — не сдаваться и искать тот способ спасения, который подходит именно тебе. Обязательно попробуй это упражнение и расскажи о нëм знакомым. Если позвоночник в норме — первый шаг на пути к здоровью сделан!

Во сколько нужно ложиться спать, чтобы просыпаться бодрым? Эта таблица — просто находка

 

Каждому знакомо чувство, когда ненавистный будильник вырывает вас из сладкого сна на самом интересном моменте.

Вы долго не можете прийти в себя, понять, где вы, и весь день чувствуете себя разбитым.

Но, к счастью, есть способ всегда просыпаться легко.

Как известно, во время сна у человека чередуются две основных фазы сна: быстрая и медленная.

Хороший ночной сон состоит из 5–6 таких полных циклов.

Ученые рассчитали продолжительность каждого из них, что позволило узнать промежуток времени, когда организм будет находиться в фазе быстрого сна.

Именно в это время легче всего проснуться.

В среднем человек засыпает за 15 минут, то есть если вам нужно проснуться в 6 утра, вам лучше всего лечь спать в 20:45 или же в 22:15.

С помощью этой таблицы вы узнаете, во сколько вам нужно лечь спать, чтобы проснуться бодрым в нужное время:

Надеемся, эта маленькая хитрость поможет вам просыпаться легко и в хорошем настроении.

Обычно здоровому человеку хватает 7 часов, чтобы выспаться.

Если сон и питание здоровые и правильные, то проспав 7 часов, человек должен просыпаться сам.

Полночь – это время отдыха для всей природы, так как солнце находится в максимально низком положении. Солнце отвечает за законы времени, поэтому режим дня и питания тесно связан с солнечной активностью.

Во сколько нужно ложиться спать?

Лучшее время для сна и отдыха – с 21-00 до 00-00.

До полуночи 1 час сна засчитывается за 2 часа, что подтверждают даже современные учёные.

В это время отдыхает нервная система человека.

Чтобы убедиться в этом, Вы можете провести опыт:

Взять и лечь спать в 21-00, а затем проснуться в 1-00 или 2-00 ночи.

И Вы почувствуете, что полностью выспались.

На востоке многие люди живут по этому режиму.

Они спят в это время, а в другое время занимаются своими делами.

В другое время нервная система не отдыхает. И если Вы не поспали в это время, то потом можно спать хоть 12 часов подряд, но психика так и не отдохнёт.

В результате будет возникать лень, апатия, сонливость.

В какое время нужно вставать утром?

С 2-00 до 6-00 действует вата, которая даёт энтузиазм и жизнерадостность.

Какая энергия действует на период времени, в который просыпается человек, то действие такой энергии в течение всего дня и будет ощущать он на себе.

Поэтому нужно просыпаться в промежутке с 2 до 6 утра и человек весь день будет находиться под влиянием энергии ваты – жизнерадостности.

На востоке это время называется временем Святых. В это время стараются вставать люди настроенные на духовное развитие и самосознание. Ранним утром само собой хочется думать о возвышенном.

И такой человек способен целый день способен думать о возвышенном и быть радостным. Также он становится дальновидным и у него хорошо развивается интуиция.

Японские учёные также проводили исследования времени перед восходом солнца и выяснили следующее:

В предрассветное время атмосферу пронизывают особые солнечные лучи, которые вызывают особый эффект в теле.

В это время тело работает в двух режимах: ночном и дневном, то есть в пассивном и активном режимах.

И именно переключение с ночного режима на дневной режим происходит в это время.

Другими словами именно эти лучи переключают эти режимы.

Но если человек в это время спит, то этого переключения не происходит.

Затем весь день он действует в ослабленном режиме. Потом он целый день борется с сонливостью, потому что находится в неправильном режиме. Отсюда постоянное употребление кофе и чая, которые являются лёгкими наркотическими веществами.

Также этот временной промежуток (с 2 до 6 часов) отлично подходит для очищения организма.

И если человек просыпается рано, то его тело естественным образом очищается и освобождается от токсинов.

          Дюймовочка13: Священное озеро Лызи, Кара-Куль (Татарстан)      Cache   Translate Page      

Священное озеро Лызи (соврем. Черное озеро, удм. Лќзя ты, тат. Кара куль) располагается на возвышенном месте в бассейне Шошмы, правого притока Вятки, в окрестностях д.

Большие Лызи–2 (Балтасинский район РТ). Наиболее ранним является удмуртское название озера Лӧзя/Лызи, происходящее от родового имени [2. С. 72].

Загадки озера Кара-куль

Вода озера имеет зеленоватый цвет, прозрачная, чистая, холодная. В центре озера она приобретает темную окраску, потому-то его называют Черным озером или Кара Куль. Форма озера овальная, размеры 215 на 122 м. В 1950-х гг. глубина озера достигала 27–29 м, в настоящее время уменьшилась до 22 м. Объем воды 136 000 м3 . Озеро бессточное. Рядом выбиваются родники, постоянно очищают и холодят его воды. Озеро имеет карстовое происхождение, связанное с залежами карбонатов, сульфатов и ангидридов. Карстовый рельеф формируется с помощью глубоких впадин, которые заполняются водой из открывшихся подземных источников.

Кара-куль

Озеро образовано более 200 лет тому назад [20; 21]. Озерная впадина располагается на возвышении в окружении перелеска. В 2001 г. здесь росли березы, липы, сосны, осины, клены, дубы, вереск, ивы, черная смородина, тополя, черемухи, вязы, рагозы, малина, рябина, бересклет, из травянистых растений: осока, стрелолист, камыш. Сохранились пни от старых деревьев огромного размера. Возле таких пней растет множество грибов типа трутовиков.

https://ex-kitubijc.livejournal.com/25109.htmlПо свидетельству информантов, название озера произошло оттого, что в прошлом оно было со всех сторон окружено густым, темным лесом, из-за чего оно и казалось черным. В давние времена на этой местности рос густой непроходимый лес, а ныне лес сохранился только вокруг самого озера. Бывает, что вода здесь то убывает, то прибывает. Куда она уходит – никто не знает.

По рассказам местных стариков, однажды тут выловили крупную рыбину весом до 40 кг. В озере водятся толстолобики, золотые карпы (завезенные), сорога, линь, пескарь. Завезенные рыбы хорошо прижились, однако они подъели корешки у произраставших здесь водяных лилий и кубышек, поэтому эти цветы исчезли с поверхности озера. К сожалению, озеро ныне интенсивно загрязняется, мелеет.

Пожилые люди говорят, что прежде воды в озере было больше. Гибнет некогда дремучий лес, окружавший этот уникальный водоем. Здесь построена база отдыха для высокопоставленных персон, что еще активнее способствует ухудшению его экологии (полевые материалы автора 2001 г.).

Кара-Куль

Окрестности озера Лызи были заселены с ананьинского времени. На расстоянии 25–30 км к се- веро-востоку от озера располагаются обнаруженные В.А. Семеновым Чутайские I и II городища (Балтасинский район РТ) с находками ананьинской керамики. Судя по бронзовой накладке азелинского времени с Чутайского II городища и материалам Азелинского могильника (Малмыжский район Кировской обл.), расположенного в 4 км от этих городищ, эти земли были обитаемы и в раннем средневековье. В 30–35 км к юго-западу от озера в окрестностях Арского городища располагается группа средневековых памятников конца I – начала II тыс. н. э. [11. Л. 14–18; 17. Рис. 3, 4]. Озеро и прилегающие к нему окрестности представляли своеобразный природно-культовый центр. В XIX – начале XX в. жители 5–6 окрестных деревень бывшего Лызинского прихода совершали большие моления у священного озера летом перед праздником святых Петра и Павла, через два года на третий, когда окружающее озеро поле засевали озимыми. Закалывали покупаемых на общественные деньги домашних животных – быка, телку и барана. Обрядовыми церемониями ведали пред- ставители одного из родов, эта обязанность передавалась из поколения в поколение. В промежутках в два года совершали простое моление с хлебом вильдон ‘обновление’. В прошлом озеро пользовалось большой известностью и почитанием среди всех малмыжских и мамадышских удмуртов (завятская или арская этнотерриториальная группа удмуртов. – Н. Ш.). Здесь они приносили в жертву баранов, чтобы излечиться от различных болезней [18. С. 205–207].

По преданию, примерно в середине XIX в. при совершении религиозных церемоний у Лызинского озера выполняли странный обряд. В северной части озера имелось два возвышения, между которыми протекал ручей. На одном из них располагается озеро, а на другом, противоположном возвышении прежде росли большие ели. Во время молений на одну из елей вешали лубяное чучело человека. Затем ударами палок это чучело сбивали на землю, после чего на этом месте приносили в жертву барана. Это место называлось нычы вожо (священное возношение) [18. С. 205-207].

Рост численности населения, его расселение, необходимость преодолевать далекие расстояния до священного озера способствовали дроблению культа хозяина озера: аналогичные культовые центры появились и в других местах. Так, религиозные обряды Лӧзя ты совершались в Мамадышском уезде (ныне Мамадышский район РТ) возле одноименных маленьких круглых углублений. А удмурты Ципьинского прихода Малмыжского уезда (ныне Балтасинский район РТ) проводили моления Лӧзя ты в открытом поле, где не имелось никаких следов существования какого-либо озера. Это озеро почитается старожилами и в наши дни. «Многие потонули в озере Лызи (Лöзя ты). Один татарин утонул, его водолазы искали долго, около недели.

Озеро глубокое, как кувшин, имеет глубокое дно. Даже водолазу стало страшно на дне. Старое местоположение озера было напротив д. Большие Лызи-2 по ту сторону р. Шошмы, то место теперь распахивают. Там пеленки постирали, и озеро ушло. У озера лечились от куриной слепоты (курег син), ели гуся, может, и курицу, я думаю. У нас иногда неподалеку родники появляются, говорят, что они из озера вытекают. И место их выхода все приближается: сначала родник был далеко, а теперь близко. Вкусная там вода, за нею ходим на родник. Теперь у озера построили баню, дома, типа места отдыха» (Наталья Филипповна Кузьмина, 1924 г. р.). «Озеро было полное, черное. Побаивались его. Я там работала на пасеке, даже руки там боялась сполоснуть. А посторонние люди приезжали, купались там, тряпки мыли. Мне плохо стало, не выдержала, убежала» (Елена Максимовна Андреева, 1928 г. р.). «На том озере крупные белые лилии росли, до 15 см в диаметре, белые-белые, их было мало, на самой середине росли, там, в тени над самой глубиной. Теперь их уже там нет. У самого озера тоже есть родник. Кто как там себя чувствовал. У меня сыну Ивану стало плохо. Мы с ним отдыхали у озера, может, попил из того родника. Лежал-лежал там под кленом, а потом плохо ему стало, заболел, чуть с ума не сошел, стал как бешенный, а температуры нет. Сноха говорит: “Что с Дъиви [Иви < Иван] случилось?”. А я слышала, что туда надо что-то унести, надо идти молча, ни с кем не говорить. Унесла туда ржавый гвоздь и крупу, крупу посыпала, примерно там, где Иван лежал. Ему как раз на- до было на экзамен идти – после этого все у него прошло. Туда ходили и мужчины, и женщины» (На- талья Кирилловна Матвеева, 1937 г. р.). Существует предание, что прежде Лызинское озеро находилось в другом месте, около с. Малые Лызи, у самого Сибирского тракта; там и совершали жертвоприношения. В начале XX в. следы бывше- го озера сохранялись в виде котлообразного углубления 8–9 саженей в диаметре и двух саженей глуби- ны. Говорили, что проезжавшая мимо цыганка помыла в нем грязные пеленки, поэтому дух озера ос- корбился и решил перевести озеро на другое место. Переселение совершалось на быках ночью во время сильной грозы. По пути попалась река, но она остановила течение своих вод, услышав рев и шум бы- ков, так что озеро, не смешав своих вод с речной водой, переправилось. По свидетельству И.В. Яковлева, на рубеже XIX–XX в. от старого места расположения до современного озера во всю длину наблю- далась ложбинка в виде канавы, якобы оставшаяся после перемещения озера [18. С. 205-207]. Легенды о переселении озера зафиксированы и в других местностях.

В 1922 г. М.И. Ильин за- писал в Мамадышском уезде предание о кочующем озере (удм. кӧчись ты ‘кочующее озеро’, от кӧчыны ‘кочевать, переселяться’). «Близ русской деревни Ушмы (очевидно, вблизи соврем. д. Ниж- ней Ошмы Мамадышского района РТ, ныне в деревне проживают лишь татары) у обочины большой дороги имеется очень глубокая впадина. В прежние времена она до краев была заполнена водой. Говорили, что там водился водяной бык. Летом по большой дороге проезжали цыгане. Увидев озеро и вблизи селение, остановились на время пожить. Одна цыганка выстирала в озере грязные пеленки. Тогда живущий в озере бык, рассердившись, оставил это место и переселился на другое. Старики рассказывали, что черная-черная туча закрыла собою все небо, ясная погода испортилась, поднялся сильный ураган, взметнулась вся пыль, когда водяной бык перемещался на новое, понравившееся место. Возле старого места в сумерки, после захода солнца, проходившему человеку становится страшно, не по себе: озеро пугает. Неподалеку от прежнего местоположения озера стоял лес Муса. Водяной бык облюбовал себе место в этом лесу и перетащил всю воду с прежнего озера. Хотя старое место осталось совершенно сухим, ушминские жители по привычке называют его Великим озером (Быдӟым ты) [3. № 9].

As Hurricane Florence bears down on the mid-Atlantic, the President boldly declares that the country is “ready for it.” But are we? And does Trump have any room to talk now that Puerto Rico has revised its death toll from Hurricane Maria to around 3,000? With Eli Sanders on vacation, Rich Smith asks Dan Savage and Katie Herzog to tell us how prepared we really are, and to speculate about whether we’ll ever be prepped enough.

Then, the steady state. Right after we taped the show last week, the New York Times published an anonymous op-ed from a “senior official” in the Trump administration. The writer claims that a group called “the steady state” is secretly preventing Trump from blowing up the country. Is that…good? And who wrote that damn op-ed? We’ll discuss.

Finally, a dispatch from the heart of Amazonia. The trillion-dollar company made headlines this week with a string of stories about how badly it treats its workers. Meanwhile, right here in Seattle, Amazon is one of the most visible drivers of income inequality and cultural tension. Rich and Dan talk to new Stranger staff writer Nathalie Graham about a piece she wrote in response to a new “Money Diary” entry from Refinery29, which shows readers what the city’s like from the perspective of an Amazonian making $240,000 per year. She’s living fancy free, but is she really living?

          Trump's worst character flaw      Cache   Translate Page      
Trump's worst character flaw

by digby




My Salon column this morning:

Bob Woodward's new book "Fear: Trump in the White House" was finally released on Tuesday, and while many of the more colorful and interesting revelations within were already published by those who got early copies, many interesting impressions have yet to be fully discussed. Woodward's method, which he and Carl Bernstein pioneered in their reporting on the Watergate scandal, is to reconstruct events from interviews with numerous sources, many of them on deep background. In the case of this latest book, as with their classic work "All the President's Men," the story provides new details but in the end really just pulls an abundance of earlier reporting into a coherent narrative. The Trump administration is the most transparent of any presidency in my recollection, due to the daily gusher of leaks to dozens of different White House reporters -- while the president tweets virtually every passing thought --- so "Fear" isn't quite a shocking as it might be.

Still, it's disconcerting to read a Woodward book that reveals a presidency just as malignant and dysfunctional as the Nixon administration, although in different ways. I confess that I didn't expect to see two presidents with such monumental character flaws twice in my lifetime. If I didn't know better I would think there's something wrong with the Republican Party that it keeps electing these people.

There are many differences between the two men, starting with Trump's frightening lack of preparation, intellect and general knowledge by comparison with Nixon. But on a character level, they show similar flaws. Trump lacks Nixon's sometimes maudlin sentimentality and Nixon didn't manifest the grandiose self-regard that Trump uses to mask his insecurities. But both presidents have a petty, mean vindictive streak and a fetish for never showing "weakness." And both will be remembered for a total lack of normal human empathy.

Nixon's flaws in that regard are well-known. The man mastered politics and policy but he was a cold fish. The fact that he climbed as high as he did with such a prickly personality was a testament to his perseverance and ambition. But Donald Trump is something else again. His inability to care about anything but himself is so glaring and obvious that it's pathological.

Woodward's book is full of examples of Trump being unable to compromise, apologize, change course or otherwise behave like a mature adult because he sees anything less than total dominance as weakness. And since he is so often a failure, and cannot admit it, he simply lies and says that he actually won.


Yesterday, he demonstrated that in living color:

He spared not a thought for the people who died or those who were left homeless for months. He simply doesn't have it in him. The mayor of San Juan spoke for most people with this tweet:



During the campaign, when asked if he had ever asked for forgiveness he memorably replied, "I like to be good. I don't like to have to ask for forgiveness. And I am good. I don't do a lot of things that are bad." When he was forced to make the one and only apology he's ever made (for his crude comments on the Hollywood Access recording) he apparently made a promise to himself to never do it again. Woodward has him railing at his former Staff Secretary Rob Porter for convincing him to give a mildly conciliatory speech after the Nazi marches in Charlottesville:
That was the biggest f---ing mistake I’ve made,” he tells Porter. “You never make those concessions. You never apologize. I didn’t do anything wrong in the first place. Why look weak?

As for human empathy, that's been obvious since he first started running for president. (New York journalists would say it's been obvious for 30 years.) He made fun of a disabled journalist, insulted women as being too ugly for him to assault, degraded Gold Star parents, calls African-American women "low IQ" -- the list goes on and on and on. The president's behavior toward the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in Niger last fall, was a perfect example. He failed to offer comforting words and then petulantly defended himself on Twitter, bringing down a barrage of abuse from his followers on the grieving widow at the worst moment of her life.

Last month he showed similar pique when at first he refused to keep the White House flag at half-mast to honor the late Sen. John McCain and only belatedly allowed his staff to put out a mildly laudatory statement in his name. McCain had not invited Trump to speak at his funeral, largely because the two men had disliked each other greatly for a variety of reasons, not least of which was Trump's nasty comment about McCain's POW history. We can also assume that the McCain family was terrified of having the president speak on such a solemn occasion because he is incapable of being dignified.

Trump nearly always treats public appearances as campaign events regardless of the context. His early appearance at CIA headquarters, shortly after taking office, illustrates that concern. Instead of giving a serious, sober speech in front of the 117 nameless stars that represent fallen agents, he lied about the size of his inauguration crowd and talked about his war with the media. Then he said this:


Every time I say I had an uncle who was a great professor at MIT for 35 years who did a fantastic job in so many different ways, academically -- was an academic genius -- and then they say, is Donald Trump an intellectual? Trust me, I’m like a smart person.

On the 9/11 anniversary on Tuesday, he managed to get through a prepared speech without digressing to brag about his intellect or his alleged accomplishments. But he certainly didn't get through the event without behaving inappropriately:






And then he posted this:






That is the real Donald Trump. As was this, 17 years ago on that awful day:


We talk a lot about Trump's egomania, dishonesty, and incompetence, which are extremely important traits when it comes to any president. But, like Nixon before him, he also has some very serious character defects. He is fundamentally bereft of empathy and human compassion, which may be the most disqualifying characteristic of all.

You need two hubs and two of each kind of wheel. I use 30 mm x 40 mm x 5 mm O-rings available from Amazon. You need 4 M3 x 25 mm screws to hold the motors on and 2 x 8-32 3/4" screws for one set of wheels. You need two motors available from Spark fun (hobby motors 2 for $5), You need a brushed motor controller from Sparkfun with headers $5, you need a 3xAA battery pack with switch available from Jameco, and a PIR motion sensor available from Amazon. The code is for a PIC16F1825 microcontroller. I also use a PCB speaker from parts express along with a 386 audio amplifier (and supporting circuitry) and an LED from Lighthouse LEDs. In the code the motor pulse frequency changes so I route an output pin to the speaker so as the robot goes faster the pitch gets louder. You can use velcro to hold stuff down, since I make my own PCBs I use the PCB holders.

          Slashdot.org: European Parliament Passes Resolution Calling For An International Ban On Killer Robots      Cache   Translate Page      
An anonymous reader quotes a report from the BBC: The European Parliament has passed a resolution calling for an international ban on so-called killer robots. It aims to pre-empt the development and use of autonomous weapon systems that can kill without human intervention. Last month, talks at the UN failed to reach consensus on the issue, with some countries saying the benefits of autonomous weapons should be explored. And some MEPs were concerned legislation could limit scientific progress of artificial intelligence.

          Some Amazon drivers are going to extremes like peeing in bottles to make deliveries on time      Cache   Translate Page      
Neither rain nor snow nor the absence of a bathroom facility will apparently stop Amazon drivers from their appointed rounds. With apologies to our vamp on that old motto for the postal service, Business Insider is out today with the results of interviews it's done with almost three dozen Amazon delivery drivers, and the picture that's painted of their working conditions is -- well, pretty brutal. Then again, this is Amazon, where frugality is practically a religion that eliminates from the company's billionaire chief executive, so maybe we shouldn't be surprised that some of these drivers say they've resorted to extremes like peeing in bottles. Instead of, you know, pulling over and stopping for a quick bathroom break. They've peed in bottles, bags, even outside right on the road. Anything to keep to what sounds like a near-impossible schedule -- like dropping off as many as 300 packages during a nine-hour shift that's supposed to include a 30-minute lunch break and two 15-minute breaks to go to the bathroom. Try to work that math out for yourself. Many of these drivers report that it either can't be done, or can barely be done as long as you're pretty much flying through red lights and basically sticking to a near-inhuman pace. Inc. magazine looked at the math and figures you'd have to deliver one package every two minutes and 24 seconds in order to clear 200 items in eight hours (factoring in one hour for breaks).
"How many packages do you have left?" That's the response Zachariah Vargas told BI he got one day when he called an Amazon dispatch supervisor six hours into his shift delivering packages. A normal question from the supervisor, you'd think -- except Zachariah had just explained that he'd accidentally slammed the door of his truck on his hand. Blood started to pour, and both his arms started to shake. He thought he could see bone.

The supervisor told him to deliver the dozens of packages he had left before he returned to the station or went for medical help. There was no first-aid kit in his truck, so he ignored that command and headed back anyway.

"'Are you dying right now? Girls have come back with worse wounds than you,'" he told BI was the response from his supervisor.

There are plenty of other stories like that across Amazon's network, which is probably to be expected given that Amazon delivered more than 5 billion packages to Prime members around the world last year. Prime members pay $119 a year and get free two-day shipping on millions of items, as same-day delivery on others. Of course, there is a cost associated with meeting that demand. "In interviews over the course of eight months, drivers described a variety of alleged abuses, including lack of overtime pay, missing wages, intimidation, and favoritism," BI reports. "Drivers also described a physically demanding work environment in which, under strict time constraints, they felt pressured to drive at dangerously high speeds, blow stop signs, and skip meal and bathroom breaks. "In response to this story, Amazon said that some challenges exist within its wide network of delivery providers and that it's working to improve the system." One Chicago-area driver interviewed said everyone he knows speeds "like crazy." "That's the only way we were able to finish our routes on time. We were zooming through residential areas, all of us, all the time." He said at one point he almost hit a child playing in the street. Another driver, a former Army combat-arms specialist, told BI "it was nearly impossible to finish a delivery route within Amazon's nine-hour time frame. He said the delivery job was more physically and emotionally challenging than his time in the Army."

https://img-hws.y8.com/cloud/v2-y8-thumbs-video-thumbnails-001/250400/s640x360_video_thumbnail.jpg The PlantBot Genetics team of Wendy DesChene and Jeff Schmuki first created Monsantra, an innovative remote controlled robot/GMO corn hybrid on wheels that could be directed by anyone it encountered on the street. Monsantra Series PlantBots were named after the Monsanto Corporation, the world’s largest supplier and producer of genetically modified seed. Posing as farmers at a Monsanto Field Research Laboratory, PlantBot Genetics acquired transgenic seeds and grafted the subsequent genetically modified organisms (GMOs) onto robotic bases to create innovative agricultural hybrids. Like a B-movie Godzilla, Monsantra attacks food politics when unleashed by remote control onto unsuspecting audiences. These robo-plant street interventions motivate communities to question industrial food production, where food comes from and where it may be going, despite their economic level, education, or interest in art. Coupling scientific knowledge on the environmental and social costs of bioengineered crops with alternative energy technology, Monsantra provokes investigations into current agricultural practices inspiring individuals to think more critically about their connection to what they eat and the natural world.

          Головні новини 12 вересня: Нові санкції Трампа, на що піде транш від МВФ і чи подорожчає газ      Cache   Translate Page      
Президент США Дональд Трамп підписав указ про введення санкцій проти іноземних громадян та компаній, які втручаються в американські вибори. 6 вересня в Україну прибули представники місії МВФ, від висновків яких залежить, чи нададуть Україні черговий транш. Такими були головні новини середи, 12 вересня, в Україні і світі.

Трамп ввів у дію санкції за втручання у вибори

Президент Сполучених Штатів Америки Дональд Трамп затвердив указ про введення санкцій проти іноземних громадян та компаній, яких звинувачують у втручанні в американські вибори.

Раніше 12 вересня з'явилась інформація, що президент США планує підписати відповідний указ. Зокрема, про це писало авторитетне американське видання The Wall Street Journal.

Радник президента США з національної безпеки Джон Болтон повідомив, що указ буде опублікований найближчим часом.

Він уточнив, що документ не містить назв конкретних країн, але нагадав, що в спробах втручання у вибори підозрювали не лише Росію, але й Китай та КНДР.

Водночас Болтон наголосив, що рішення про запровадження відповідних санкцій прийматиме Держдеп та Мінфін США.

Нагадаємо, 21 серпня Сполучені Штати розширили санкції проти Росії через її вороже кібервтручання, а 27 серпня набрав чинності ще один пакет санкцій США проти Росії.

Що таке "іноземне втручання" у вибори в США?Підставою для так званого "російського розслідування" стала кібератака на Національний комітет Демократичної партії США, внаслідок якої у відкритий доступ потрапили тисячі листів працівників штабу Гілларі Клінтон – кандидатки на пост президента США від Демократичної партії на виборах 2016.

Розвідка США з'ясувала, що злом здійснили два угруповання російських хакерів – Cozy Bear і Fancy Bear. Приводом для розширення "російського розслідування" стало досьє на чинного президента США, зібране колишнім офіцером британської розвідки Крістофером Стілом впродовж 2015-2016 років, та викриття численних контактів членів передвиборчого штабу Дональда Трампа із російськими чиновниками.

Новий транш від МВФ

Чергова місія МВФ 6 вересня прибула до Україні. До 19 вересня представники Фонду обговорять із українською стороною економічну політику і приймуть рішення про надання чи не надання чергової фінансової допомоги нашій державі.

Остаточного рішення про виділення Україні чергового траншу МВФ ще не ухвалено, проте в Національному банку України вже знають, на що підуть ці гроші.

Він наголосив, що в НБУ все ж сподіваються на позитивне рішення від Міжнародного валютного фонду, але "складне рішення" щодо ціни на газ для населення, за його інформацією, буде прийнято.

Прем’єр-міністр каже, що складне рішення щодо ціни на газ буде прийнято. Нині тривають складні переговори з МВФ, і я сподіваюся, що найближчим часом рішення ухвалять, тому що всі інші умови МВФ ми вже виконали,
– запевнив представник Нацбанку.

Василь Фурман пояснив, що черговий транш піде на поповнення золотовалютного резерву регулятора.

За його словами, виділення Україні чергового траншу МВФ дасть "зелене світло" для міжнародних інвесторів.

"Співпраця з МВФ вказує на те, що Україна рухається в правильному напрямку", – зазначив фахівець.

У НБУ наголошують, що транш МВФ – це завжди "великий плюс для стабільності й інфляційних очікувань" в Україні.

Раніше в Нацбанку розповіли, що розраховують на отримання нового траншу від МВФ у розмірі 2 мільярди доларів вже до кінця осені.

Що вимагає МВФ від України?Головною умовою отримання нового траншу від МВФ – є підвищення ціни на газ для населення до ринкового рівня і збалансування держбюджету України, щоб дефіцит не перевищував 2,5% від ВВП. Ще однією важливою умовою отримання траншу було створення Антикорупційного суду. Яку Україна формально виконала.

Газ для населення точно подорожчає, – заява міністра енергетики

Міністр енергетики та вугільної промисловості Ігор Насалик підтвердив, що ціна на газ для населення в Україні зросте. Оскільки це є вимогою для отримання наступного траншу МВФ.

Водночас остаточних цифр, на скільки зростуть ціни на газ для українців, Насалик назвати не зміг.

Прем'єр вже озвучив, що ми не можемо вести неконструктивні розмови з Міжнародним валютним фондом. Тому, буде підвищення, але я не можу сказати, на скільки. Я не веду переговорів по ціні на газ. Це зобов'язання покладено на Міністерство фінансів,
– цитує главу Мінерго "УНІАН".

На початку вересня в Україну прибули експерти місії МВФ, за висновками яких буде вирішено, чи отримає Україна наступний транш від Фонду у розмірі 2 мільярдів доларів.

Понад 22% українських трудових мігрантів у Польщі хотіли б переїхати до цієї країни на постійне проживання, і понад 13% не хотіли б назавжди залишатися в Польщі.

Про це свідчать дані дослідження "Українці на польському ринку праці: досвід, проблеми та перспективи", проведеному на замовлення польського агентства працевлаштування іноземців EWL СА.

Згідно з результатами, 26,3% опитаних трудових мігрантів з України готові були б залишитися в Польщі на кілька років, 22,1% респондентів хотіли б переїхати до Польщі на ПМЖ, 13,7% не хотіли б постійно жити у цій країні, а 37,9% не змогли відповісти.

Водночас кожен другий респондент планує працювати в Польщі від 3 до 6 місяців, третина українців мають намір працювати до 3 місяців, 11,7% – від півроку до року і лише 5,4% планують працювати в Польщі понад рік.

64% опитаних заявили, що працюють у Польщі за робочою візою, 26,8% – за біометричним паспортом, 4,6% – мають посвідку на проживання.

Серед трудових мігрантів 63,6% становлять чоловіки і лише 36,4% жінки.

Більше половини (57%) українців виїжджають до Польщі на заробітки від 18 до 35 років, 26,2% – у віці 36-45 років, 15% – у віці 46-55 років, у віці понад 55 років – тільки 1, 8%.

Серед основних причин, чому українці виїхали на заробітки до Польщі, респонденти називали: низьку зарплату в Україні (79,6%), погану політичну та економічну ситуацію в рідній країні (19,7%), безробіття (16,9%), корупцію (14,7%), відсутність відчуття безпеки (8,3%).

Незважаючи на популярність Польщі як напрямку для трудової міграції, більшість опитаних українців розглядають можливість роботи і в інших країнах, зокрема, Німеччині (27%), Чехії (21%), Італії, де хоче працювати кожен двадцятий українець.

Дослідження було проведено c 25 травня до 8 червня 2018 року методом індивідуального опитування. Участь у ньому взяли 900 респондентів від 18 років.

Нагадаємо, Україна входить у топ-10 країн-донорів мігрантів у світі. За даними Центру економічної стратегії, більше 4 млн українців (експерти кажуть майже 5) є трудовими мігрантами, тобто виїжджають працювати за кордон (тобто близько 16% працездатного населення). Одночасно за кордоном перебувають близько 2,6-2,7 млн осіб.

Згідно з опитуванням, проведеним 24 каналом, понад усе українці бояться, що розлука з рідними і особливо дітьми завдасть їм психологічної травми – так вважають 47% читачів сайту 24 каналу. Ще 43% вважають таку роботу ризикованою. І лише 10% не хочуть працювати за кордоном, оскільки там дорожче життя.

          Топ-5 невиконаних обіцянок: чим встиг оскандалитись очільник "Укрзалізниці" за рік      Cache   Translate Page      
Екс-заступник Міністра інфраструктури Євген Кравцов виконує обов’язки керівника "Укрзалізниці" понад рік, хоч уряд обіцяв призначити нового "легітимного" голову ще восени 2017-го.

Аби нагадати, чим встиг відзначитись очільник УЗ, ГО "Zалізниця без корупції" підготувала топ-5 найбільших невиконаних обіцянок Кравцова за цей рік.

1. Кравцов і корупція

Ледь не в першому інтерв'ю на пості керманича Кравцов заявляв, що поборе корупцію в "Укрзалізниці". Тоді він вперше заговорив про необхідність створення незалежного антикорупційного органу – "комплаєнс-офісу", рішення про формування якого було прийнято ще в березні 2016-го. 

Цікаво, що залізниця ледь не з десяток разів анонсувала старт однієї і тієї ж реформи, наголошують антикорупціонери. Проте за три роки "комплаєнс-офіс" так і не створили.

"Укрзалізниця" торік навіть оприлюднила оголошення про проведення прийому на посаду директора "комплаєнс-офісу", проте далі оголошення справа так і не пішла. Пізніше це відзначиться у приписі НАЗК, який визнає незадовільною роботу керівника УЗ у сфері запобігання корупції. А все ніби так добре починалося…
– йдеться у статті "Zалізниці без корупції".

Натомість наслідки відсутності зрушень вражають: один з членів правління УЗ отримав відразу 36 адмінпротоколів від НАЗК через ухиляння від декларування доходів! На залізниці продовжився калейдоскоп затримань хабарників, а суми збитків держави в кримінальних провадженнях щодо УЗ збирають мільярди!

2.Автоматизований розподіл вагонів

Не менш гучно впроваджували і систему автоматизованого розподілу вагонів. Вона мала усунути людський фактор і мінімізувати корупцію.

Розроблювати програмне забезпечення доручили близькій до УЗ компанії – ТОВ "НВП "ТМССофт" – лідерці по отриманню контрактів на обслуговування ПЗ для залізниці.

Проте минув рік – і залізниця відмовилась від системи… За даними ЦТС, на початку червня 2018-го її припинили використовувати саме через проблеми з програмним забезпеченням.

Однак залізниця навряд стягуватиме збитки з розробника програми. Адже міцність "дружніх" зв’язків з "ТМСофт" підкріплена роками. Та й такі підряди для залізниці випадкові фірми не отримують,
– прогнозують антикорупціонери.

Як наслідок, реформа так і не розпочалася, а обіцянки лишилися обіцянками…

3. Йдемо до виробника…

"Відходимо від практики закупівель через "три руки". Доручив філії "Центр забезпечення виробництва" зупинити процедуру закупівлі стрілочних переводів і запасних частин, що набула суспільного резонансу", – написав  у своєму Facebook Кравцов у червні цього року.

За словами керівника УЗ, рішення про розірвання договорів з посередниками, в яких НАБУ вгледіла накрутку ціни на 35-40%, керівництво філії мало прийняти протягом кількох днів. Проте, вже за тиждень залізниця підписала всі договори з прокладкою ТОВ "Крендлз" на постачання комплектів стрілочних переводів! І жоден з договорів, за даними системи ProZorro, так і не розірвали…

"Обіцянка Кравцова швидко забулася, а керівництво залізниці почало вигадувати прикриття – мовляв, сам виробник не хоче укладати договори напряму. Звісно в накрутці цін на півмільярда гривень в рік ніхто не вгледить серйозних проблем і керівництво залізниці навряд чи буде червоніти на червоному килимі державницьких інституцій", – повідомляє "Zалізниця без корупції".

Чергова обіцянка так і лишилась обіцянкою. Не дивно, що вже за місяць керівник УЗ повідомив про розірвання резонансного договору з "РЖД" на постачання знаків "почесного залізничника" але в системі ProZorro донині відсутня будь-яка інформація про розірвання укладеного договору, стверджують антикорупціонери.

4.Корабель-привид

Уже 4 роки на балансі "Укрзалізниці"– 2 вантажних пороми, які мали б забезпечити контейнерні перевезення Чорним морем і сполучення Азії з Європою через Україну.

Амбітна мета поки ніяк не знайде свого втілення, а пороми продовжують простоювати без діла в ремонтних доках,
– зазначають в ГО "ЗБК".

Однак Кравцов аж 2 рази "запускав" їх в роботу. Так, у квітні 2017-го заявив, що пором "Герої Шипки" почне свою роботу вже в травні. Однак, на рік про цю заяву забули. І вже в березні 2018-го року Кравцов зробить аналогічну заяву, мовляв, ремонт порому знову завершиться за місяць!

Минуло півроку, а про роботу порома так нічого і не відомо. Щоправда, НАБУ з'ясувало, що закуплене для поромів раніше пальне на 100 мільйонів гривень загадковим чином зникло. Тож, нібито, і пливти все одно немає на чому,
– іронізують антикорупціонери.

А  тим часом пором "Герої Шипки", за даними порталу відстеження водних суден, досі знаходиться в порту Чорноморська.

5. Прозорі тарифи

У минулому році перед підняттям тарифів на вантажні перевезення Кравцов повідомив, що вже з 2018-го УЗ перейде на новий принцип формування тарифів за чіткими та прозорими індексами. Для цього УЗ навіть витратили 4,8 мільйонів гривень на консультації щодо зміни нормативних актів.

Проте цієї осені знову заговорили про чергове підвищення тарифів, а нової системи їх регуляції ми скоріш за все так і не побачимо,
– прогнозують антикорупціонери.

Щоправда, залізниця знайшла нові потенційні виходи: дерегуляцію вагонної складової для парка вагонів УЗ, яка може збільшити обсяги доходів залізниці без перегляду тарифів. Дерегуляція звісно добре, але прозорість і прогнозованість – краще, підсумовують у "Zалізниці без корупції".

The patent was called “an extraordinary illustration of worker alienation, a stark moment in the relationship between humans and machines” by researchers who highlighted it in a study published Friday.

          LA ESTAFA QUE QUIERE QUEDARSE CON TODO, TUS DATOS Y TU CUENTA (PARA VACIARLA)      Cache   Translate Page      
La suplantación de identidad -o phishing-  es un método para realizar estafas por internet conocido desde la década de 1980 y comenzó a hacerse popular en los años siguientes, con la popularización de la red de redes. El término phishing fue inventado por el hacker y spammer Khan C. Smith y la primera estafa que se conoce estaba relacionada con robar contraseñas y datos financieros de los usuarios de America Online, según los archivos de la Universidad Cornell. De hecho, la palabra está relacionada con “pescar” usuarios de AOL (“pescar” en inglés es “fishing”.
Una forma habitual es enviar un mail avisando de una deuda o de la falta de actualización de datos de contacto o de pago con una institución conocida. Ese correo incluye un sitio web que, en ocasiones, es similar al de la institución. Cuando se entra al sitio web, la pantalla que aparece solicita una serie de datos que luego usará para obtener dinero (de cuentas bancarias o tarjetas de crédito) o datos directamente para venderlos.
En la actualidad, es uno de los métodos de estafa online más populares, más que nada en su modalidad “bulk” (en criollo, envían mails al voleo). Sin embargo, el número de sitios únicos de phishing identificados por el Antipishing Working Group bajo en el último trimestre de 2017 (180.757 frente a 190.942 en el tercero) y en el año contra año (de un total de 277.693 en el último trimestre de 2016). Esta caída podría deberse a un cambio en la metodología de medición, ya que ahora se computan direcciones web que suelen aparecen con URL personalizadas pero que dirigen al mismo lugar, según consigna el blog Segu-info.

El caso más reciente: PayPal (y Apple)

Como puede verse en la imagen dada a conocer desde la cuenta del Twitter del blog mencionado, el correo en cuestión llega en este caso sin enlace (para evitar las medidas de seguridad de los distintos clientes de correo) pero con un archivo PDF adjunto. En él se informa que los datos propios en la cuenta de PayPal son incorrectos y que si el usuario quiere seguir utilizando la cuenta deberá actualizar. Por supuesto, en el PDF sí aparece una dirección web  que lleva a un sitio web que comienza con “country0-mypapal” y que pide mail y contraseña. Una vez que el usuario introduce los datos, los ladrones se habrán hecho con los datos de PayPal. En el caso de Apple, pide información para quedarse con el Apple ID de los usuarios de la manzanita.

 

Qué buscan

Según Borghello, en este caso se trata tan solo de los datos más básicos del usuario, ya que luego de introducirlos en la pantalla mostrada arriba, el sitio web redirige a la página oficial de PayPal. ¿Qué pueden hacer con esos datos? Si bien no pueden acceder a los datos de las tarjetas de crédito y débito, si pueden utilizar el saldo precargado que se pueda tener en la cuenta, tal como lo confima Camilo Gutiérrez , jefe de Laboratorio de la compañía de ciberseguridad ESET.
Además -dice Rodríguez-, "cuando uno se loguea utiliza el mismo correo electrónico y la misma clave que usa en otros servicios, algo que hacen muchos usuarios; ahí pueden matar muchos pájaros de un tiro". Si consiguen ingresar a la cuenta de email, desde allí podrán modificar y hacerse con las contraseñas de muchos otros servicios, como las de las redes sociales. 
Un dato a tener en cuenta es que quien roba los datos no es quien necesariamente lo va a utilizar. "Estos suelen ponerse a la venta en mercados de la Deep Web. Se trata de bases de datos de, por ejemplo, 10.000 cuentas de correos electrónicos con contraseñas -no todas funcionan, por supuesto- y hay personas que luego utilizan esa información. Así que un posible objetivo es obtener la información para obtener ganancias con ella."
 

Consejos útiles

Desde ya, la recomendación es no hacer caso a este tipo de email. ¿Cómo darse cuenta? Si uno mira el mail, vera que más allá del nombre de fantasía de la cuenta (Centro de Ayuda de PayPal), la dirección real está llena de números y no tiene mucho sentido. En el PDF, hay una serie de errores de edición que las empresas suelen cuidar mucho (la prolijidad en las comunicaciones es parte de la imagen corporativa): dos, puntualmente –como puede verse en la imagen-, un salto de línea en el medio del párrafo que habla de lo rápido del proceso y luego dos puntos en lugar de uno en el final del último párrafo. El sitio web, con todos esos caracteres, no tiene sentido: la URL de PayPal es www.paypal.com.
Más allá de esto, la propia página de PayPal dedicada a este tipo de estafas señala que nunca le va a pedir al usuario números de tarjeta de crédito y débito, números de cuenta bancaria, número de documento de identidad, direcciones de correo electrónico, contraseñas y el nombre completo. O sea, justamente lo que solicitan las web falsas involucradas en un phishing. En caso de recibir este correo PayPal solicita que se denuncie a spoof@paypal.com. Otro lugar para denunciar es phishing@antiphishing.com.ar, de Segu-Info, que se ocupa de avisar a las compañías.
Cristian Borghello, director de Segu-Info, además de lo ya dicho, recomienda "nunca hacer clic en los enlaces recibidos" y aclara que no alcanza con chequear la dirección de correo electrónico o la URL. No es suficiente, de hecho, que los sitios web comienzen con el HTTPS. Se deben dar ambas condiciones, ser el sitio real y comenzar con HTTPS. "Esto es muy importante porque los delincuentes suelen crear dominios parecidos al real. Por ejemplo: HTTPS://www.sitioseguro.com vs HTTPS://www.sitiosegur0.com (ambos son HTTPS pero en el segundo se cambió la letra "o" por el nro "0")", desarrolla el experto en ciberseguridad.
"Una táctica común en casos de correos falsos es la de intentar asustar al destinatario. Es común que los asuntos del correo sean intimidatorios como 'bloquearemos su cuenta' o 'su tarjeta ha caducado'", puntualiza. "En cada correo recibido, utilizar el sentido común. Si algo es demasiado bueno o demasiado malo seguramente el correo es falso", recomienda.
El caso reciente que llegó a las noticias es el de Netflix: ofrecían una suscripción por $1 por año pero, claro, era solo una estafa más. La estafa apareció repetidamente en Instagram.

          The just-announced Dyson 360 Heurist robot vacuum can see in the dark      Cache   Translate Page      
Hands-free sounds good to me. Today in Beijing, Dyson announced its newest endeavor: the 360 Heurist. Three years ago was Dyson's first foray into the world of robot vacuuming with the 360 Eye. The newest version brings with it several improvements, which is a good thing considering the reviews the earlier version received. There's a new processor that's 20 times faster. There are new voice assistant capabilities so you can talk to your robot pal with your other robot pals like Alexa or Google. There are more bristles, more suction power, more runtime, and those aren't even the coolest features. "Heurist" likely comes from the word "heuristic", which means "enabling a person to discover or learn something for themselves." That makes perfect sense, because the new 360 Heurist features an LED ring around its top camera. If the lights are off, it won't panic and shut down. It simply "sees" for itself using up to eight of its LED lights. The 360 Eye didn't perform well in the dark, so...

          La mirada de Sica sobre el mercado: Wall Street, las pymes y "Doña Rosa"      Cache   Translate Page      
El ministro de Producción y Trabajo, Dante Sica, afirmó que "el mercado" es "Wall Street, las pymes y Doña Rosa", por lo cual estimó necesario "generarles expectativas y darle información a los tres para calmarlos". 

"El mercado es Wall Street, las pymes y Doña Rosa", indicó el funcionario, para quien el primero son los inversores externos; los segundos, "aquellos empresarios que todos los días se levantan a la mañana, abren la fábrica o el comercio y se ponen a trabajar" y el tercero, "el ciudadano común que muchas veces mira al dólar como un seguro que le permite salvarse de la inflación".

"Tenemos que generarles expectativas y darle información a los tres para calmarlos", consideró Sica, en declaraciones al canal de noticias LN+. Para el ministro, las pymes "presentan varios problemas: por un lado una caída de la demanda, el corrimiento de precios por la devaluación y la tasa de interés alta".

Con relación al programa Precios Cuidados, Sica comentó: "Estamos en una economía mucho más abierta y con mucha más competencia, con un consumidor más low cost que no tiene prejuicios a la hora de elegir marcas". "Nuestro espíritu no es multar, es generar un programa que sirva en un momento de mucha dispersión de precios, como una referencia para el consumidor", añadió.

Por otra parte, resaltó que es necesario "hacer un cambio estructural en el comportamiento fiscal, que permita bajar la presión (impositiva) y que genere esa estabilidad necesaria para tener inversiones de largo plazo que permitan un mercado formal de trabajo mucho más inclusivo que el que generamos hasta ahora".

Sica también hizo referencia al paro general que la CGT convocó para el 25 de este mes y afirmó que "el derecho a huelga es constitucional, pero no es un momento oportuno para hacerlo.

          Bitcoin apuntará a billones de dólares convirtiéndose en moneda de Internet mientras los países imprimen dinero para luchar contra la crisis inminente      Cache   Translate Page      
Si Bitcoin se convierte en la moneda de internet, como Jack Dorsey esperaba, tiene el mercado objetivo de $ 8 billones en la industria del comercio electrónico. Mientras tanto, el mayor propietario de fondos de cobertura del mundo dice que la crisis que se avecina sería grave a medida que los países de todo el mundo avanzan para imprimir dinero.

La ola de Bitcoin dominará el mundo

En los últimos días, el precio de Bitcoin sigue deteriorándose junto con todo el mercado de cifrado. Pero de ninguna manera significa, Bitcoin se está perdiendo en el caos de los precios. Es solo un ciclo normal! A pesar de una serie de noticias positivas en el mercado, se ve afectada por la presión de venta y los sentimientos del mercado que también podrían implicar que una billetera robusta de bitcoin esté en movimiento. Los movimientos similares ocurren en el mercado bursátil tradicional, las monedas nacionales e incluso las economías.
Sin embargo, como dijo una vez el cofundador de Twitter y CEO de Square, Jack Dorsey,
"El mundo finalmente tendrá una moneda única, Internet tendrá una moneda única. Personalmente creo que será bitcoin ".
También dijo que sucedería "probablemente más de diez años, pero podría ir más rápido".
Si echamos un vistazo a la industria de pagos de comercio electrónico como compartidos por los entusiastas del cripto Kevin Rooke, las posibilidades de Bitcoin es descomunal:

Los entusiastas de Bitcoin han estado esperando la criptomoneda líder para gobernar el mercado y convertirse en una moneda digital utilizada en todo el mundo. Si Bitcoincaptura incluso la industria de pagos de comercio electrónico, un mercado de un billón de dólares es seguramente el camino a seguir.El caos: crisis grave e impresión de dinero
Mientras tanto, hoy en una entrevista con CNBC, Ray Dalio, fundador y co-CIO del mayor fondo de cobertura del mundo, Bridgewater Associates, declaró:
"Creo que será más severo en términos de problemas sociales y políticos. Y creo que será más difícil de manejar ... No será lo mismo en términos de la crisis de la deuda del Big Bang. Será un tipo de crisis de deuda de crecimiento más lento y más restrictivo que creo que tendrá mayores implicaciones sociales y mayores implicaciones internacionales ".
Además, la situación se deteriorará aún más con la forma en que se producen las crisis económicas y los países de todo el mundo recurren a la impresión de dinero. Recientemente, las noticias del presidente Donald Trump considerando el enfoque de imprimir dinero para reducir la deuda nacional y equilibrar el presupuesto federal han estado rondando.
Según el libro "Miedo: Trump en la Casa Blanca", de Bob Woodward, un veterano periodista, Trump dijo: "Simplemente ejecute las imprentas - imprima dinero". Esto ha sido durante una discusión sobre la deuda nacional con el ex director de el Consejo Económico Nacional de la Casa Blanca, Gary Cohn.
A lo que Cohn ha dicho
"No puedes hacerlo de esa manera. Tenemos grandes déficits y ellos importan. El gobierno no mantiene un balance así ".

          Si China y EE.UU. llegaran a un acuerdo, estos serían niveles históricos de compra en Europa      Cache   Translate Page      
Ligeras alzas al cierre de las bolsas europeas, tras el impulso final de Wall Street por las noticias que apuntan a nuevas negociaciones entre EE.UU. y China. Jornada de escasa volatilidad -entre el máximo y el mínimo intradía del Eurostoxx 50 ha habido 19 puntos.
Los inversores se mantienen en ese compás de espera, buscando un catalizador que anime al comprador, o que estalle definitivamente el conflicto comercial para deshacer sus posiciones. Mientras tanto, únicamente operaciones intradía y de poco rango en el mercado.
La jornada comenzaba con el cierre bajista de las bolsas asiáticas, alcanzando el índice de la zona mínimos de 14 meses. Las tensiones entre China y EE.UU. siguen incrementándose. Las declaraciones de los portavoces gubernamentales parecen indicar que la situación ha alcanzado un punto de no retorno, mientras que algunos prestigiosos economistas como Mohamed El-Erian, creen que la probabilidad de una guerra comercial abierta entre ambos países es de tan solo el 25%. En resumen, confusión total.
A primera hora veíamos alguna toma de beneficios en el dólar, y pocos movimientos en las materias primas a excepción del petróleo que seguía ganando posiciones.
Las bolsas europeas abrían prácticamente planas, a pesar de los rumores políticos que apuntaban por un lado a la posibilidad de que la primera ministra británica, Theresa May, fuera forzada a dimitir, y a que el ministro de economía italiano corriera el mismo camino. Ambos rumores fueron desmentidos con posterioridad, pero ya saben lo que dicen de cuando el agua suena.
En el plano nacional teníamos por un lado la subida de las acciones de Inditex por encima del punto porcentual tras la publicación de los resultados de su último trimestre, y las caídas de cerca del 2% de Telefónica tras la rebaja del precio objetivo de JP Morgan a 10,5 euros desde los 12,2 euros anteriores. Finalmente Inditex ha subido más del 4%, soportando las caídas de algunos títulos del sector bancario, y de la propia Telefónica.
Rumores de una nueva ronda de negociaciones entre EE.UU. y China.
Las bolsas europeas no reaccionaban ante esos datos, y a media sesión mantenían las ligeras ganancias en el Eurostoxx 50, y el comportamiento plano en el Ibex 35.El primer dato macro de la jornada en Europa fue el IPC español de agosto, que en tasa interanual se ajustó a las previsiones del 2,2%. Posteriormente conocíamos la producción industrial de Italia en julio con una caída mensual del 1,8% frente -0,4% esperado y la producción industrial de la zona euro en el mismo mes, que también descendía por encima de las previsiones (-0,8% frente -0,5% esperado).
"Por ahora estamos llevando bastante bien el fatídico mes de septiembre, el peor del año en las bolsas según los datos históricos", nos comentaba un operador en esos momentos.
Los futuros de Wall Street también apuntaban una apertura sin cambios, cuando conocíamos los precios de producción de EE.UU. en agosto. Se esperaba una subida del 0,2% mensual, frente una caída del 0,1% real.

Wall Street abría plano y un bajo volumen de negociación. "No hay grandes noticias positivas para operar, por lo que es probable que nos movamos en base a los titulares, lo que significa que podemos estar arriba una hora y luego caer a la siguiente", decía JJ Kinahan, estratega jefe de mercado de TD Ameritrade.En esos momentos los futuros del Dow Jones y el S&P 500 se mantenían planos. Las bolsas europeas subían dos décimas porcentuales. El dólar ganaba terreno frente al euro y a la libra, y perdía frente al yen. El petróleo subía cerca del medio punto porcentual (brent).
De ahí al final de la sesión poco más que señalar. Los índices de valores estadounidenses se giraban al alza al cierre de los mercados europeos, tras los rumores que apuntan a una nueva ronda de contactos comerciales entre EE.UU. y China. Esto llevaba a las bolsas europeas a cerrar cerca de máximos intradía.
El euro/dólar rompía la resistencia de los 1,1600. El oro se mantenía plano, y el petróleo subía con fuerza por la fuerte caída de los inventarios semanales.

          Indonesia Masuk Daftar Negara dengan Risiko Krisis Paling Kecil      Cache   Translate Page      

REDAKSIINDONESIA-Analisis yang dilakukan Nomura Holdings Inc menunjukkan ada delapan negara berkembang yang dipandang memiliki risiko paling kecil terpapar krisis moneter. Negara-negara tersebut antara lain Indonesia, Brasil, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Peru, Filipina, Rusia, dan Thailand. Dalam analisis Nomura, delapan negara tersebut memperoleh skor nol terkait risiko krisis moneter. Artinya, negara-negara itu memiliki risiko yang sangat kecil untuk mengalami krisis.

 
 
Analisis Nomura didasarkan pada model peringatan awal krisis yang dinamakan Damocles. Model tersebut memeriksa sejumlah faktor, termasuk cadangan devisa, tingkat utang, suku bunga, dan impor. Berikut ini penjelasan terkait 8 negara berkembang yang memiliki risiko paling kecil terpapar krisis moneter. 
 
1. Indonesia
 
Nilai tukar rupiah beberapa waktu terakhir mengalami pelemahan terhadap dollar AS. Namun, pelemahan tersebut dipandang cenderung gradual dan sejalan dengan kebijakan pengetatan moneter yang dilakukan bank sentral AS Federal Reserve. Meski begitu, Indonesia dipandang cukup resilien dalam menghadapi kondisi tersebut, terlihat dari cadangan devisa yang cukup tinggi untuk menahan pelemahan nilai tukar lebih lanjut. Selain itu, pemerintah pun telah melakukan serangkaian upaya untuk memperbaiki defisit transaksi berjalan. Rasio utang Indonesia pun dipandang masih cukup baik. Dengan cadangan devisa yang tercatat 117 miliar dollar AS dan rendahnya rasio utang terhadap produk domestik bruto (PDB), Indonesia masih cukup kuat dalam menahan pelemahan nilai tukar. 2. Brasil 
Nilai tukar real Brasil terpuruk terhadap dollar AS selama 2,5 tahun terakhir. Hal ini disebabkan kenaikan suku bunga di AS dan ketidakpastian politik di Negeri Samba tersebut. Namun, di sisi lain, perekonomian Brasil sedang mengalami pemulihan meski masih cenderung underperform, yang didorong konsumsi dalam negeri. Pertumbuhan ekonomi Brasil sejauh ini mencapai 1,1 persen, jauh di bawah ekspektasi sebelumnya, yakni 2,7 persen. Bank sentral Brasil pun telah melakukan serangkaian upaya stabilisasi real, antara lain kebijakan swap valas. Awal Agustus 2018 lalu pun suku bunga acuan ditahan di level 6,5 persen.  
 
3. Kazakhstan
Sama seperti negara-negara berkembang lainnya, nilai tukar mata uang tenge Kazakhstan juga melemah terhadap dollar AS. Bank sentral Kazakhstan menyebut, nilai tukar tenge melemah lantaran ketegangan geopolitik, kebijakan proteksionisme AS, dan sanksi yang diterapkan terhadap Rusia, China, dan Turki. Namun, bank sentral tetap mempertahankan rezim nilai tukar mengambang dan siap melakukan intervensi untuk stabilisasi tenge. Selain itu, negara tersebut juga terus mengembangkan pariwisata. 
 
4. Bulgaria
 
Pemerintah Bulgaria tengah mengusahakan keanggotaan mata uang euro dan uni perbankan Uni Eropa hingga Juni 2019 mendatang. Oleh karena itu, ada sejumlah persyaratan yang harus dipenuhi perekonomian Bulgaria. Hal ini turut membuat perekonomian negara tersebut cenderung solid. Beberapa syarat itu antara lain perbaikan bingkai kerja keuangan makro, memperkuat pengawasan sektor keuangan non-bank, serta upaya lebih keras dalam memberantas pencucian uang. Reuters mewartakan, inflasi Bulgaria cenderung rendah. Selain itu, anggaran Bulgaria pun mengalami surplus dan rasio utang pemerintah cenderung rendah. 
 
5. Peru
Nilai tukar peso Peru turut melemah terhadap dollar AS, mengikuti negara-negara berkembang lainnya sejalan dengan krisis keuangan yang terjadi di Argentina. Meski demikian, perekonomian negara di Amerika Selatan tersebut terus memperlihatkan peningkatan yang signifikan. Pertumbuhan ekonomi Peru didukung investasi swasta yang terus meningkat porsinya. Pada tahun 2019 mendatang, pertumbuhan investasi swasta diprediksi mencapai 7,9 persen, naik dari 5 persen pada tahun 2018 ini. Salah satu pendorong utama investasi swasta adalah proyek-proyek pertambangan. Adapun investasi pemerintah diperkirakan tumbuh 14 persen tahun ini. 
 
6. Filipina
 
Pertumbuhan ekonomi Filipina dihantui beberapa risiko, antara lain inflasi yang tinggi dan risiko eksternal. Namun demikian, pertumbuhan ekonomi negara tetangga Indonesia tersebut masih cukup tinggi, yakni 6 persen pada kuartal II 2018. Bank sentral Filipina menyatakan, perekonomian Filipina cukup resilien menghadapi risiko eksternal, termasuk krisis di sejumlah negara berkembang, seperti Turki dan Argentina. Gubernur Banko Sentral Ng Filipinas Nestor Espenilla mengungkapkan, fundamental ekonomi Filipina sangat bagus. "Pertumbuhan (ekonomi) kita sangat kuat, posisi fiskal kita tersusun rapi, dan posisi eksternal kita cenderung baik meski defisit, serta rasio utang rendah," kata Espenilla seperti dikutip dari Philippines Star.
 
7. Rusia
 
Perekonomian Rusia dihantui sejumlah risiko, seperti dijatuhkannya sanksi oleh AS hingga krisis. Akan tetapi, pertumbuhan ekonomi negara tersebut dipandang memiliki prospek yang cukup baik, meski diyakini tak akan terlalu tinggi.   Menurut Perdana Menteri Rusia Dmitry Medvedev, ada sejumlah indikator perekonomian Rusia yang tercatat baik. Rasio utang luar negeri telah mencapai level minimun.   Selain itu, daya saing industri manufaktur Rusia juga menguat, serta substitusi impor terjadi di sejumlah segmen. Kemudian, ekspor non-migas juga tumbuh positif, termasuk peningkatan peran sektor keuangan.   
 
8. Thailand
 
Berkebalikan dengan negara-negara berkembang lainnya, nilai tukar baht Thailand justru menguat. Bahkan, baht merupakan mata uang berkinerja terbaik di Asia dan nilainya terus stabil sepanjang tahun.   Perkasanya baht merupakan dampak dari fundamental ekonomi Thailand yang kuat. Inflasi di Negeri Gajah Putih tersebut rendah dan surplus transaksi berjalannya pun besar.   VOA mewartakan, besarnya surplus transaksi berjalan Thailand sebagian didorong pertumbuhan sektor pariwisatanya yang sangat kuat. Surplus transaksi berjalan mendukung kuatnya nilai mata uang suatu negara dan berarti negara tersebut kurang bergantung pada mata uang asing.   Selain itu, Thailand adalah eksportir besar mobil dan barang-barang lainnya, yang juga memberikan kontribusi penting terhadap surplus transaksi berjalan.

Как я моделировала:
✔️ Скорректировала детали спинки и переда по длине. У каждого величина удлинения своя. Для данной коррекции необходимо померять желаемую длину по спинке от 7-го шейного позвонка и выявить разницу.
✔️ Убрала средний шов на детали спинки. Наличие среднего шва нивелирует поперечный залом в области поясницы. Но мой материал достаточной рыхлый, лишние швы не нужны и меня не смущает небольшой поперечный залом, все вполне жизненно.
✔️ Убрала нагрудную вытачку и перевела раствор в посадку. ✔️В связи с тем, что раствор нагрудной вытачки переведен в посадку, я переоформила линию бокового шва на детали переда.
✔️ Спроектировала высокий воротник-стойку. Высота моей стойки в готовом виде 10 см, в крое без припусков соответственно 20 см. а вот длина данной детали очень сильно зависит от вашего материала. Моя стойка на 15 см короче окружности горловины! Такая разница в величинах дала мне возможность при помощи утюга создать красивую форму горловины.

При пошиве такого материала, как у меня существуют определенные тонкости. Мне не хотелось использовать плоский шов, который внешне простит изделие. Поэтому чтобы изделие получилось качественным и долго носилось, я немного помудрила и нашла несколько простых путей решения, которыми очень довольна.
 
Итак, как я шила трикотажное платье. Было несколько экспериментов, которые на мой взгляд дали хорошие результаты. Трикотаж чистошерстяной я предварительно намочила и дала высохнуть. Усадка была незначительной.
 
1. Отпарила трикотажное полотно, выровняв структуру вязки. При отпаривании утюгом полотна не касалась и постоянно формовала руками полотно.
 
2. Раскроила детали, строго соблюдая направление столбиков вязки.
 
3. При пошиве использовала одну машину – 4-х ниточный оверлок. В петлители я поставила текстурированую нить. В иглы обычную армированную нить №50.
 
4. Для стабилизации плечевых срезов использовала силиконовую ленту. Трикотаж рыхлый, плечевые однозначно необходимо стабилизировать.
Платье-водолазка по выкройке 4
5. По низу рукава область припуска на подгибку я проклеила тончайшим дублерином на трикотажной основе. Что мне это дало? Припуск по низу рукава не растягивается и срез хорошо обметался, так же без растяжения. Втачала рукав в открытую пройму
Платье-водолазка по выкройке 5
| 6. Соединила детали переда и спинки по боковым срезам, образуя посадку в области нагрудной вытачки.
 
7. С низом изделия я поступила точно так же, как и с низом рукава. Проклеила область припуска на подгибку дублерином. Я знаю, что при пошиве дома подобных платьев низ капитально растягивается и при пошиве и при эксплуатации. У меня такой проблемы не возникло. Кстати при обметывании среза по низу изделия и по низу рукава я использовала строчку 4-х ниточную для дополнительной стабилизации среза.
Платье-водолазка по выкройке 6
8. Соединила в кольцо ручными стежками воротник – стойку и аккуратно померяла только воротник. Я не стала его вметывать в горловину изделия. Во первых не хотела травмировать область не обработанной горловины, во вторых мне нужно было прилегание стойки в области шеи. Поняла, что прилегание недостаточное. Распорола и скорректировала длину стойки. Померяла еще раз и только после этого соединила в кольцо деталь на оверлоке.
 
9. Перегнула стойку по линии перегиба и вметала ее в горловину, сильно растягивая срезы стойки, ведь моя разница оказалась существенная по отношению к срезу горловины.
 
10. Втачала и одновременно обметала срезы на 4-х ниточном оверлоке. На утюге растянула срез горловины, а верхний край перегиба стойки не растягивала. Таким образом сформовала и получила очень красивую анатомичную стойку.
 
11. Осталось подшить низ рукавов и низ изделия. Я не хотела класть плоский шов, здесь он на мой взгляд не уместен. Выход один-подшить вручную или на машине потайного стежка. Я выбрала ручной вариант. Но какой ниткой? Перепробовав все, я остановилась на силиконовой тонкой прозрачной нити. Она хорошо тянется и прекрасно возвращается в первоначальное состояние, бывает черного и полупрозрачного белого цвета. Под рукой оказалась полупрозрачная нить, она и пошла в ход. Я ни разу не пожалела, что ее использовала. Главное вначале приспособиться, потестировать на образце.

Платье-водолазка по выкройке 8
12. Кстати, после каждой машинной операции я производила влажно-тепловую обработку обработанных участков паром. Касалась утюгом я только участков дублирования. Прежде чем поступить именно так, эксперименты у меня были с окантовыванием срезов, с ручной обвязкой крючком и т.д. этот вариант оказался самый лучший. Вот такой процесс создания платья, надеюсь вам было полезно. Успехов в пошиве!​
 

          Le Canada moins compétitif face aux États-Unis      Cache   Translate Page      
Le FMI recommandait au Canada en juin dernier de revoir sa fiscalité des entreprises. Les gouvernements canadiens vont manquer le bateau s’ils ne baissent pas le impôts. La pression compétitive américaine pourrait s’avérer fatale…
Un article de l’Institut économique de Montréal
Depuis que les États-Unis ont abaissé leur impôt fédéral sur le revenu des entreprises, faisant passer leur taux combiné moyen de 39 à 26%, le Canada, dont le taux combiné moyen est à près de 27%, est beaucoup moins compétitif. Lorsque les investisseurs vont hésiter entre des projets canadiens ou des projets américains, ce dernier l’emportera plus souvent que par le passé.
Tout ça alors que l’investissement au pays est déjà morose : l’investissement des entreprises en pourcentage du PIB continue d’être un des plus bas de l’OCDE.
Le ministre des Finances Bill Morneau veut faire une annonce au sujet de la compétitivité lors du prochain énoncé économique, cet automne, mais il semble préférer des mesures ciblées pour favoriser l’investissement au lieu de baisser de cet impôt. C’est une erreur. Plusieurs fiscalistes canadiens, ainsi que plusieurs organisations internationales, recommandent plutôt d’abolir ce genre de mesures, qui sont coûteuses et entraînent toutes sortes d’effets pervers.
Bien entendu, le gouvernement fédéral n’est pas le seul concerné par la compétitivité de notre système fiscal. Le taux d’imposition provincial moyen des entreprises est d’un peu plus de 13%, alors qu’il est d’environ 6% pour les États américains. Il n’y a pas plus de grand débat à ce sujet dans les provinces. Bien qu’Ottawa et Québec aient diminué le taux de l’impôt pour les petites entreprises, et que ces taux baisseront encore l’an prochain, c’est le silence radio pour le taux général, celui qui est véritablement important pour la compétitivité.
Pourtant, le temps passe et la pression ne viendra pas seulement des États-Unis. Comme le fait remarquer Jack Mintz, l’un des plus importants fiscalistes canadiens, le taux d’imposition des entreprises en France passera de 33,33 à 25% d’ici 2022, et de 34 à 25% en Belgique sur une période similaire; le gouvernement australien a l’intention de réduire son taux de cinq points de pourcentage; et le taux suédois passera de 22 à 20,6%.
Et ce n’est probablement qu’un début. Les pays se font concurrence pour attirer les investissements et, dépendamment de la méthodologie utilisée pour les projections (certes imparfaites), le Fonds monétaire international chiffre la baisse moyenne de cet impôt d’un à trois points de pourcentage à l’échelle de la planète. Et il ne s’agit que de la première vague de réductions, puisque les gouvernements vont aussi réagir aux ajustements dans les pays voisins.
Le FMI recommandait d’ailleurs au Canada en juin dernier de revoir sa fiscalité des entreprises. Les gouvernements canadiens vont manquer le bateau s’ils ne baissent pas eux aussi ces taux d’impôts.

UNE MARGE DE MANŒUVRE

L’OCDE faisait le même constat quant à l’importance de baisser l’impôt des entreprises, rappelait qu’il s’agit d’un impôt peu efficace, et suggérait d’appliquer le même taux aux grandes et aux petites entreprises, ce qui comporte des avantages évidents, notamment en évitant la désincitation à la croissance (nous suggérons de ne conserver que le taux des petites entreprises, plus faible).
L’OCDE a par ailleurs rappelé que «les impôts et taxes sont légèrement supérieurs au niveau nécessaire pour financer les dépenses et faire en sorte que le ratio dette/PIB reste inchangé à long terme». En somme, cela signifie que l’on dispose même d’une marge de manœuvre pour se permettre de faire diminuer les recettes de cet impôt.
Au Québec, la commission Godbout recommandait aussi d’alléger l’impôt des entreprises. Même le comité de réflexion économique du gouvernement fédéral, le Conseil consultatif en matière de croissance économique, jugeait en décembre dernier qu’une réforme du fardeau fiscal des entreprises était nécessaire.
Il est navrant que les débats économiques n’aient pas encore intégré la gravité de la situation. À Ottawa, on semble privilégier d’autres mesures et à Québec, le débat est tout simplement absent. Les baisses d’impôts américaines, combinées à la déréglementation dans plusieurs secteurs, font que le Canada est beaucoup moins compétitif qu’il ne l’était par le passé.
Alors que les experts sont unanimes, les gouvernements canadiens ont un train de retard.

          Demoiselle on My Journey with My Violin Since May 1716.      Cache   Translate Page      

Mark said
Demoiselle,

Very interesting thought process you have on improv, very similar to Stephen Gappanelli the father of gypsy jazz. From what I understand he utilized the chord structure of the song and used it for the basis of his improv by weaving the relative notes of the cords to create his signature sound.

Thanks,

Mark  

Well, my old friend Jörg was indeed a gypsy swing guitarist when I met him 1985. He just left high-school and was a big fan of Django Rheinhardt. We were both dwelling in the 30s and early 40s. That was before he got interested in the late Django Rheinhardt who was already a bit more modern than classical swing. Then Jörg became an admirer of Charlie Parker and began to work himself into the bebop scale system.

But you are right, that musicians focused on chords before the bebop period. That was normal in the 20s and 30s. They needed an awful lot of listening experience, whereas today they feed scales to ignorants and make them play like music robots. And if you don't follow a certain scale, those poor players look like cows witnessing something spectacular.


          Google's new AI chief has said he worries about 'horrible scenarios' that would trigger 'the complete lockdown of robotics research' (GOOG, GOOGL)      Cache   Translate Page      

The iCub robot tries to catch a ball during the Innorobo European summit

  • Three top researchers have begun sounding warning bells about the possible negative impacts of AI.
  • Andrew Moore, the newly named head of AI at Google Cloud, said he has conceived of "horrible scenarios" that could potentially lead to a public backlash against the technology. 
  • Other researchers predict AI will lead to more automation in the workplace and reduce job opportunities for humans; and AI will one day enable more intrusion, even into our thoughts.

Some people quake at the idea of artificial intelligence. It's safe to say that sci-fi films featuring malevolent machines have helped poison much of the public's perception of AI. 

But three experts in the field say there's good reason to feel uneasy. While killer robots are still many years away, AI in some cases could pose an enormous threat to humans, according to Andrew Moore, the dean of the Computer School at Carnegie Mellon University who will soon take over as head of Google Cloud AI.

In November, Moore gave the keynote address for the Artificial Intelligence and Global Security Initiative, and said: "If an AI disaster happens, and that would for instance be an autonomous car killing people due to serious bugs, and frankly I believe that’s already happened, then at some point AI systems are going to be locked down for development, at least in the US."

"There are some even more horrible scenarios — which I don’t want to talk about on the stage, which we’re really worried about — that will cause the complete lockdown of robotics research," Moore continued.

'There are some even more horrible scenarios'

Moore's statements come during a time when billions of dollars are being invested in AI.

Google, Microsoft, IBM, Intel, Amazon, Facebook, and others are pushing hard to develop the technology. Sundar Pichai, Google's CEO, once called AI more fundamental to human development than electricity or fire.

Andrew Moore

Nonetheless, a handful of researchers are urging caution and warning that AI misuse could bring serious consequences. 

Last week, Kai-Fu Lee, the former president of Google China, predicted that AI will revolutionize many industries and generate a lot of wealth, but most of it will land in the pockets of a relatively small number of people. He warned that with the help of AI, business owners will automate more and more tasks that were once performed by humans.

"So it's actually having a doubling effect...creating new AI tycoons at the same time taking away from the poorest of society," Lee said at the Artificial Intelligence 2018 Conference in San Francisco.

At the same conference, Meredith Whittaker, cofounder of the institute AI Now at New York University and a leading Google researcher, outlined how technologists, including Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, are searching for a means to enable humans to control devices via their thoughts. She predicted that in the not-so distant future, the technology will exist that can interpret and store our thoughts.

Whittaker then posed a question to the audience: What would happen if the authorities went to a company who had warehoused its customers' thoughts and subpoenaed a person's thought records? She called this possibility "creepy."

Along the same "creepy" vein is the increasing ability of AI systems to read human emotions. This is something that Moore said is on the way.

"Up until three or four years ago, the advances in computer vision and speech processing were around recognizing people, recognizing objects, and transforming spoken words into underlying written sentences," Moore told Forbes magazine last year. "Now we realize we can go farther than that. For example, the cameras in modern cell phones have such high resolution that they can see little imperfections in the face and use them to track all the parts of skin as they move around the face.

"From tracking all the bits of the skin, you can work out what the muscles are doing under the face," Moore continued. "From what the muscles are doing, using previous knowledge from psychology, you can detect facial action units and micro expressions to get information that we as humans are not even consciously aware of.

          The 27 Best Movies and Shows to Watch in Portland: Sept 14-26      Cache   Translate Page      
From Ursula K. Le Guin to American Vandal. by Mercury Things to Do Staff
MEANS WE RECOMMEND IT. Theater locations are accurate Friday-Thursday, unless otherwise noted. Movie times are updated daily and are available here.

American Vandal: Season 2
Shot in Portland but set in Bellevue, Washington, the second season of Netflix’s true-crime mockumentary is just as clever and addictive as the first. This time, earnest high-schooler documentarians Peter Maldonado (Tyler Alvarez) and Sam Ecklund (Griffin Gluck) take their investigation skills to St. Bernadine’s Catholic School, where, ever since a tragedy dubbed “The Brownout,” the student body has been terrorized by a splattery series of “poop crimes” perpetrated by “The Turd Burglar.” The suspects and victims are numerous, from beloved basketball star DeMarcus (Melvin Gregg) to vest-wearing, tea-sipping Kevin “Shit Stain” McClain (Travis Tope); in their unflagging quest for the truth, Peter and Sam dig deep into teachers’ dubious alibis and students’ revealing emoji habits. This season is a slower burn than the first, but over the course of its eight episodes, its perfectly played characters prove deeper and better, including “a theater kid who lives in the friend zone” and a man known only as “Hot Janitor.” While Peter and Sam are stymied by secrets, lies, and possible sabotage (Mrs. Wexler, St. Bernadine’s dean of students, repeatedly refuses their requests for an interview), the duo’s intrepid reporting and keen crime-scene analysis (“That is way too big for dogshit”) ensures the Turd Burglar’s identity will be discovered. Like the first, this season of American Vandal is consistently hilarious, but it’s also sneakily, subtly emotional—you’re going to end up caring about all these awkward teen weirdos, and, of course, very invested in who had the motive and the means to mastermind the Brownout. (Available Fri Sept 14, Netflix) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Blaze
Directed by Ethan Hawke, Blaze explores the legacy of country singer/songwriter Blaze Foley, who belonged to the same scene as Townes Van Zandt, but was murdered before many people got to know his name. There’s plenty of mythology surrounding Foley and his hillbilly charm—he was known for wearing duct tape on the tips of his cowboy boots—but Ben Dickey’s raw performance makes the focus the flawed, tender man behind the songs (Lucinda Williams once called Foley “a genius and a beautiful loser,” which pretty much nails it). The film’s best moments involve his relationship with actress Sybil Rosen (Alia Shawkat) and the time they spent living together in a treehouse in Georgia, but those get cut off due to frequent jumps to sepia-toned flashbacks. That nonlinear narrative also kind of makes sense, though, given the fact that Blaze’s history was lived by people who were often engulfed in a cloud of cigarette smoke and suffering from whiskey amnesia. It’s not the first time Hawke has made a film about a forgotten musician—his 2014 directorial debut Seymour: An Introduction retraced the life of classical pianist Seymour Bernstein. Blaze isn’t particularly remarkable, but the attention given to Foley’s love story and the toll of his addiction are quietly gripping. (Opens Fri Sept 21) CIARA DOLAN

BoJack Horseman: Season 5
While all you tantrum-throwing assholes were setting McDonalds on fire for packets of liquid salt in fealty to the diminished, sickly cynical shine of Rick and Morty, animation fans of a more sophisticated bent were indulging the dark sweetness of BoJack Horseman, a show that began as a satire of celebrity and has, over the course of four seasons, become a tightly plotted, painfully insightful, and emotionally draining examination of depression, addiction, and how to let yourself enjoy what brief rewards you earn in the struggle to be better than you are. Starring Will Arnett as a brown horse and Amy Sedaris as a pink cat. (Available Fri Sept 14, Netflix) BOBBY ROBERTS

Crazy Rich Asians
Crazy Rich Asians is the first major American motion picture starring a predominantly Asian cast since The Joy Luck Club came out in 1993. That is BONKERS, and it makes this film’s release noteworthy. Great! Let’s talk inclusion! I love it. Thumbs up, Hollywood! Now let’s talk about the next most important thing: Crazy Rich Asians is romantic comedy gold that should be celebrated not only for its cast but also for its perfect execution of light, breezy escapism. (Now playing) ELINOR JONES

Fags In The Fast Lane
The Portland premiere of Josh Collins’ campy, unapologetically gay-as-fuck Australian exploitation entry into the superhero canon, centered on the adventures of Beau Cockslinger and his Mary Men. There is also a magic gold dildo. (Fri Sept 14, Clinton Street Theater)

Fahrenheit 11/9
Michel Moore’s latest, about the 2016 election and the presidency of Donald Trump (who lost the popular vote by 2,864,974 votes). Whether it’ll be as sharp as Moore’s great stuff (2002’s Bowling for Columbine) or as self-indulgent as his more recent stuff (2016’s Michael Moore in TrumpLand) is TBD, as it wasn’t screened for critics. (Opens Fri Sept 21)

Fast Break
In 1978, Director Don Zavin gave unto thirsty Blazermaniacs a rambly, contemplative, slightly stoned gift of a documentary, Fast Break. There is no real narrative arc, the closest thing to a through-line basically gets abandoned halfway through, and there’s nothing particularly insightful or profound to be gleaned from following the team through their quiet Pacific Northwest adventures following their shock-the-world championship run in 1977. Which is fine, because Fast Break works best as a time-travel device anyway, a shaggy portal back to a Portland that will never exist again, where Maurice Lucas is chilling at the pool, Dave Twardzik is teaching kids the fundamentals, and big bike-riding Bill Walton is doing that charmingly infuriating Bill Walton thing where gallons of melodic syllables rain down over his jutting chin and evaporate into senselessness right around his collarbone. Walton would break his foot in '78 and flee Portland a year later, the team's chemistry slowly soured, and never another Finals would be won, but Fast Break perfectly captures the weirdly serene scenes before it all fell down. (Mon Sept 17, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

Halloween (1978)
In the final trailer for David Gordon-Green's upcoming sequel to this film, the voice of Jamie Lee Curtis dramatically intones through whispery reverb that "40 years ago, on Halloween night, Michael Myers murdered three people." The statement comes off as oddly comical now, after four decades under the Shape's hulking shadow, with thousands of bodies strewn across the sordid history of a genre he elevated to prominence—three seems like child's play. Hell, Child's Play racked up a bigger body count. But watching John Carpenter's breakout film (the most profitable indie ever made for a very long time), the weight of those three deaths feels heavy indeed. Halloween is considered the father of the slasher, but Carpenter's film maintains its power because it doesn't really slashthat much. It simmers, and stares, and slowly glides into menacing situations and abandons you there until the shadow of Michael Myers swallows you right up. That sort of thing seriously fucked people up in 1978. It still works pretty damned well in 2018. (Sat Sept 22, Hollywood Theatre, followed by a Q&A with star P.J. Soles) BOBBY ROBERTS

The Land of Steady Habits
The latest from writer/director Nicole Holofcener (Lovely and Amazing, Enough Said) features a quietly amazing cast (Edie Falco, Connie Britton, Ben Mendelsohn) clumsily hurting and healing each other through a series of mundane-yet-emotionally powerful events. Holofcener is not yet a genre unto herself, but she should be soon. (Available Fri Sept 14, Netflix)

Life Itself
Dan Fogelman, the creator and showrunner of the tear-jerking machine that is NBC’s This is Us writes and directs this romantic epic starring Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Mandy Patinkin, Annette Bening and Antonio Banderas and oh man you’re crying already, aren’t you. God this guy is good. (Opens Fri Sept 21)

Lizzie
In a revealing interview with the Huffington Post, Chloë Sevigny said she’d hoped Lizzie—the new film in which she portrays Lizzie Borden, who was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an ax in 1892 Massachusetts—would be a “rousing, smash-the-patriarchy piece,” and admitted that director Craig William Macneill’s final product isn’t what she’d imagined. Building off the wealthy family’s battle over inheritances and the rumor that Borden killed her parents after they discovered her relationship with the Irish maid Brigid (Kristen Stewart), Lizzie tries to find the seemingly impossible balance between family drama, murder mystery, and queer romance. Though it’s a compelling idea, it doesn’t work—the forbidden love story isn’t fleshed out enough for that motive to be believable. And in 2018, when depictions of queer romance are just starting to get mainstream attention with films like Moonlight and Call Me by Your Name, I’m not sure this hypothetical lesbian link to a grisly murder is really necessary. It’s valuable to reexamine history with the knowledge that women weren’t always granted the opportunity to tell their own stories, but Lizzie is more like a rogue spitballing session that reframes Borden’s infamous crime as a justifiable rebellion against injustice.

Love, Gilda
By anyone’s standards, Gilda Radner is comedy royalty. She was a member of Toronto’s Second City troupe that included fellow future legends like Joe Flaherty and John Candy, the first woman cast to National Lampoon Radio Hour, and the first person hired to be part of Saturday Night Live’s inaugural season. In other words, she’s the ideal candidate for a documentary about her accomplishments and impact on the comedy world. Love, Gilda is not that film. The well-intentioned effort by director Lisa D’Apolito strives to highlight Radner’s fearless energy but gets stuck on her precipitous rise to fame and her many famous lovers, layering it all with a quaint rosy glow. It’s only when the film focuses in on the last part of its subject’s life—as she dealt with multiple bouts with cancer—that it finds depth. (Opens Fri Sept 21) ROBERT HAM

Re-Run Theater: Battlestar Galactica
40 years ago, an enterprising television producer named Glen A. Larson saw Star Wars and said "I think this could be done as a Mormon allegory on television! I know, I'll write a meanderingly weird ripoff and sell it to ABC. I'll get the old cowboy who sells dog food and make him the star." Thus, Battlestar Galactica was born, a budget-busting one-year wonder starring Lorne Greene that stole Star Wars's visual effects mastermind to realize space battles were eye-meltingly awesome on '70s-era television sets (and still kinda impressive now). But the pilot episode Re-run Theater is screening tonight? Eeeehhhh... Once the Cylon apocalypse concludes in the first third, Galactica keeps asking "so what the hell do we do now" and arriving at increasingly stupid answers like "lets play with this annoying robot dog" and "lets visit a casino planet," and "What if casino planet is really run by insect monsters?" But then the Death Star casino planet explodes, and the movie ends, and all the preceding bullshit just kinda slides off, leaving not much more than faintly warm memories of pew-pew and boom-boom. And for a lot of little kids in the late '70s—that was apparently enough. But don't get it twisted: for as much cheesy fun as this might be (and mileage definitely varies) the 2003 reboot is better in every conceivable way. (Wed Sept 26, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

Repressed Cinema: Psychotronic After School Special
A carefully curated collection of really fucking weird shit, including a “documentary” about a dystopian future hosted by Orson Welles, an anti-alcohol ’80s film titled The Glug, and a 1975 educational film about the pleasures and dangers of processed food in America. (Tues Sept 18, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

Searching
What makes Searching—a mystery that takes place predominantly on a series of computer desktops—more than a gimmick is how well it captures the limited but instantly recognizable emotional language of computer use: the typed but unsent message, the search query that’s loaded with dread, the shortened email subject line that belies bad news. All of these are effectively deployed in service of a fairly conventional missing-person story, enabling the film’s limited field of view to capture the feelings of familial isolation, technological confusion, and desire for connection. (Now playing) BEN COLEMAN

A Simple Favor
A thriller directed by Paul Feig and starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. (Opens Fri Sept 14)

Stephen King Double Feature
It's Stephen King's 71st birthday—and the Hollywood is celebrating with a 35mm double feature of two movies penned by the horror and literary mastermind! First up is 1982's pulpy anthology flick Creepshow, directed by Night of the Living Dead's George Romero; second is 1985's Cat's Eye, directed by Lewis Teague and featuring James Woods, Drew Barrymore, and, of course, an evil troll. Hail to the King, baby. (Fri Sept 21, Hollywood Theatre) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Supergirl
God, I want to like 1984's Supergirl. And Supergirl really, really wants you to like it, too. That goodwill is present in the winsome performance of Helen Slater as Kara Zor-El, and it's definitely there in the striking melodies of all-time-great composer Jerry Goldsmith. But goodwill is not enough to make up for Jeannot Zwarc's steamrolled-flat direction, Faye Dunaway's embarrassing turn as the villain, and a story by David Odell that (successfully) does its damndest to undermine everything mythic and majestic about Kara and her world, pouring sugar in Supergirl's empathy engine until she's left stranded in a soupy stew of failed gags and short-circuited drama. The real saboteurs? The film's producers, sworn enemies of goodwill Alexander and Ilya Salkind, whose petty, wrongheaded decision-making process hamstrung Superman II in 1981, kneecapped Superman III in 1983, and unfortunately turfed almost all of Clark's big-screen potential a mere six years after Superman: The Movie, and unfairly damaged Kara's for decades with this disappointing botch-job of a cash-in. There are some joys to be found in Supergirl but too many of them depend on a forgiving audience willing to do the sort of heavy lifting that would leave even the Girl of Steel winded. (Sat Sept 15, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

Swinging Roman Cinema: Il Boom
Dolce Vita Confidential author Shawn Levy continues his series showcasing the best of Italian cinema with a screening of 1963’s Il Boom, a dark comedy about Italy’s economic revival, directed by Vittoria De Sica. (Wed Sept 26, Hollywood Theatre)

We the Animals
We the Animals invites its audience into the exclusive, powerful magic that comes with belonging to a group of three young brothers, running wild in a rural town and trying to make sense of their parents’ abusive relationship. Though similar in theme and feel to 2017’s The Florida Project, We the Animals focuses on the internal view of the youngest brother, Jonah (Evan Rosado). In Justin Torres’ novel, on which the film is based, the actions Jonah undertakes and the repercussions he faces are serious—but director Jeremiah Zagar’s film is more concerned with showing the beauty of youth with all the boring parts cut out. (Now playing) SUZETTE SMITH

From Hand Habits to Kneebody to Toe. by The Mercury Music Experts Dream Team™

Angel Olsen
Angel Olsen’s voice is like a flash flood—it’s easy to get swept up in the emotion behind her whispered devotions and existentially aching sighs. Nobody else can do what she does (the only worthy comparison is probably the late Patsy Cline). See Olsen perform songs from Phases, the collection of B-sides and rarities she released last year, at her second Portland show of the Tiny Dreams Solo Tour. (Thurs Sept 13, 8 pm, Newmark Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway, $31-41; w/Hand Habits) CIARA DOLAN

No Kind of Rider, Sama Dams, Slow Corpse
Savage Coast, the debut album from No Kind of Rider, has been a long time coming. The band has been playing around Portland for the better part of a decade, slowly perfecting a sound that connects vintage shoegaze pop, sultry indie rock, and lush electronica. The theme of Savage Coast seems to be finding ways of letting go, not just of a bad relationship or the spirit of a beloved family member, but of an entire way of being. This is the music of reinvention and refocusing, a soundtrack to setting one’s hopeful eyes on the horizon. (Thurs Sept 13, Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) ROBERT HAM

Greta Van Fleet, Dorothy
The much-ballyhooed “death” of rock has led to an unusual side effect: As shaggy dudes playing loud guitars recede from the spotlight, the few remaining rock acts have grown even more precious to the diehards. This explains the rapid rise of Greta Van Fleet, a Michigan quartet of three brothers and one friend who are selling out large halls before they’ve even released a full-length album (and before two of the members have reached legal drinking age). A listen to either of GVF’s startlingly competent EPs, Black Smoke Rising and From the Fires, reveals why: These kids are hidebound devotees to the Orthodox Church of Led Zeppelin, replicating that band’s swing, swagger, and screeching vocals with an almost astonishing amount of confidence. They’ve gained acclaim for a powerful live show, and with their much anticipated debut album due in October, Greta Van Fleet are poised to become absolutely massive. When they do, enjoy their riffs, which really are good—but just be ready to ignore the countless think-pieces that say, “Rock is back!” (Fri Sept 14, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway) NED LANNAMANN

Kali Uchis, Gabriel Garzón-Montano
Kali Uchis is teetering on the brink of pop super stardom. The Colombian American singer/songwriter has toured with Lana del Rey and cultivated a following of loyal stans ever since releasing her 2015 Por Vida EP. In April, Uchis dropped her debut LP Isolation, and it’s pretty much perfect—she jumps easily from R&B to garage rock to reggaetón, with features from artists like Bootsy Collins, Reykon, and Tyler, the Creator. Uchis’ music videos, which have millions of YouTube views, typically involve a lot of bubblegum-pink (her pink hairdo, a pink sunset) and driving down lonely roads in retro roadsters. (Fri Sept 14, Roseland, 8 NW 6th) ISABEL LYNDON

Murder by Death, William Elliott Whitmore
Murder by Death and William Elliott Whitmore have come full circle. Back in 2000, Whitmore performed for the first time with a brand-new band, Little Joe Gould, led by the young vocalist/guitarist Adam Turla and cellist Sarah Balliet, in a basement in Bloomington, Indiana. Little Joe Gould would eventually change their name to Murder by Death, and the two musicians embarked on multiple tours together. They found themselves once again sharing the road, and now a label, as both artists released albums this year on the venerable Bloodshot Records. MBD’s eighth LP, The Other Shore, finds them writhing in their literary gothic-folk, this time under the guise of a space-western epic taking place on a post-apocalyptic planet. Meanwhile, Whitmore’s seventh record, Kilonova, rides the singer/songwriter’s far-reaching baritone vocals and swampy Americana into new and exciting realms. (Sat Sept 15, Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell) RYAN J. PRADO

Blood Orange
Though Dev Hynes has written and produced hits for the likes of Solange, Florence and the Machine, Kylie Minogue, and Carly Rae Jepsen, his solo work as Blood Orange has never been all that concerned with chart-topping singles. Over seven years and three albums, Hynes used the Blood Orange moniker to delve into deeper, more delicate, and more personal material. His new record Negro Swan explores themes like the ongoing anxieties of queer and trans folks and people of color, surviving childhood trauma, and what he defines as “Black depression.” Negro Swan is a meditative journey through Hynes’ most intimate thoughts, sung over minimalist drum beats, mellow guitar riffs, and spaced-out keys. It’s less an album of independent and disjointed singles—as so many hip-hop and R&B albums are today—as it is one continuous and slowly unspooling narrative. Lacking such straightforward bops as Freetown Sound’s “Best to You” or Cupid Deluxe’s “You’re Not Good Enough,” Negro Swan requires more patience than previous Blood Orange albums, and perhaps more than a couple of front-to-back listens. Its progressive R&B and lush bedroom pop is more ruminative than Hynes’ previous efforts, but the result is beautiful, haunting, and brutally honest. With guest appearances by Tei Shi, A$AP Rocky, Project Pat, and Diddy (who lets himself be surprisingly candid), the most important and frequent guest is transgender activist Janet Mock, whose spoken interludes are heard throughout the album, propelling the narrative forward to a triumphant coda. (Sun Sept 16, Roseland, 8 NW 6th, $29.50-39.50) SANTI ELIJAH HOLLEY

The Zombies, Liz Brasher
Sorry, youngbloods: The Zombies are responsible for some of the best live shows I’ve ever seen. The aging group, which formed in the 1960s and was responsible for some of the greatest pop songs of that decade (“She’s Not There,” “This Will Be Our Year”), reunited around vocalist Colin Blunstone and keyboardist/songwriter/vocalist Rod Argent, and this new edition of the Zombies has been an ongoing concern for more than a decade now. In 2015, they played the entirety of their perfect 1968 album Odessey and Oracle at Revolution Hall, and it was mind-blowingly great, bringing tears and delight to the entire auditorium; Blunstone’s gorgeously smoky voice hadn’t aged a day. Expect some of that same magic tonight—although sadly, this time they’ll be without veteran bassist Jim Rodford (the Kinks, Argent), who passed away earlier this year. (Mon Sept 17, Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark) NED LANNAMANN

Hatchie, Wildhoney
Sugar & Spice, the flawless debut EP from dream-pop purveyor Hatchie—AKA Brisbane, Australia’s Harriette Pilbeam—is a gorgeous, gossamer thing, filled with weightless stardust melodies and cozy-blanket hooks that make each track utterly irresistible. This is Hatchie’s first-ever Portland show, so get ready to be infatuated. (Wed Sept 19, 9 pm, Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, $13-15; w/Wildhoney) NED LANNAMANN

Liz Phair, Speedy Ortiz
Exile in Guyville’s 25th anniversary has given the world a good excuse to revisit Liz Phair’s early streak of wicked genius, but this year also marks the 20th anniversary of Whitechocolatespaceegg, an essential record that splits the difference between Phair’s ’90s intensity and ’00s sheen. Nothing in the collected musical works of humankind is quite as lethal as “Fuck and Run” or “Flower” on Phair’s third LP. What Whitechocolatespaceegg does have is Phair’s greatest pop triumph (“Polyester Bride”) as well as a handful of songs (“Go on Ahead,” “Girls’ Room,” “Perfect World”) that recapture the magic of Guyville’s standout tracks. Let’s hope they get some love tonight. (Wed Sept 19, Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside) CHRIS STAMM

Toe
Japanese band Toe is all about interlocking precision, and while their music doesn’t quite fall in the category of math rock, that’s probably the closest descriptor for their rigid but never robotic jams. Toe’s newest album, That’s Another Story, collects various odds and ends from over the years with an emphasis on remixes, revealing something pretty fascinating in the process. By stripping the band’s exacting musical interplay down to its fundamental sounds and building it back up again, these remixes have found common ground between loop-based electronic music and the hypnotic repetition of Toe’s propulsive sound. (Wed Sept 19, Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell) NED LANNAMANN

Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, Paul Cherry
On their last record, 2017’s Backlash, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears’ soulful, infectious blues met riff-heavy funk, with the focus shifting from Lewis’ noted fretwork to peppy brass and a steady rhythmic pocket, as heard on the excellent “Global.” As evidenced by their status as veterans of pretty much every major American music festival, the band is known for engaging performances that orbit around Lewis’ unhinged vocal delivery that sounds inspired by the likes of Howlin’ Wolf and James Brown. It’s the kind of guitar hero-centric act that’s not unlike the unifying allure of Jimi Hendrix or Lenny Kravitz (if that’s your thing). Their sixth studio LP, The Difference Between You and Me, is due out this month. (Thurs Sept 20, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) RYAN J. PRADO

John Prine, Todd Snider
The Tree of Forgiveness is John Prine’s first collection of new material in over a decade, and it contains some of the legendary folksinger/songwriter’s most playful tunes to date. At 71, Prine doesn’t spend too much time mulling over the end of life and the great beyond, but when he does, it’s with a twinkle in his eye: On the excellent closing track “When I Get to Heaven,” he sings of being reunited with family and smoking “a cigarette that’s nine miles long” amid a chorus of kazoos, saloon piano, and hooting backup singers. The Tree of Forgiveness is sweet, silly, and a little sad, meaning it’s the perfect kind of John Prine record. (Fri Sept 21, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway) CIARA DOLAN

The Avett Brothers
Back in July, the Avett Brothers postponed the third of three consecutive shows they were scheduled to play at the Edgefield after a man claiming to be an out-of-state police officer entered the venue with a gun and disappeared into the crowd. Though unnerving, nothing came of the incident, and the beloved North Carolinian folk rockers made good on their promise to reschedule the cancelled concert—tonight they’ll perform to a sold-out Edgefield audience to close out the final day of summer. (Fri Sept 21, Edgefield, 2126 SW Halsey, Troutdale) CIARA DOLAN

Slothrust, Summer Cannibals
Slothrust’s extraordinary new LP, The Pact, is a wild beast of a record, alive with sadness, fear, defiance, and joy. The album plays like a tour of night’s most tender zones, those places that hum with thoughts that don’t belong in the light. On “The Haunting,” the album’s centerpiece and one of 2018’s best songs, singer/guitarist Leah Wellbaum paints a picture of existential uncertainty that could double as a band motto: “Not sure if I am asleep or awake, so I’ll treat this body like I think that it’s a fake and see how much it can take.” We’ve all been to that terrible in-between—Slothrust has just figured out how to thrive there. (Fri Sept 21, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) CHRIS STAMM

The Mattson 2, Astronauts Etc.
If, as a band, you decide to cover John Coltrane’s landmark 1965 jazz album A Love Supreme, you’re either daringly confident in your ability to bring something new or interesting to one of the greatest pieces of music ever composed, or you just love being in way over your head. Most fall into the latter category, but the Mattson 2 qualify as the former. On The Mattson 2 Play “A Love Supreme,” the SoCal jazz duo—percussionist Jonathan Mattson and guitarist Jared Mattson, who are identical twins—rework Coltrane’s masterpiece with verve and virtuosity, giving familiar tunes an update that’s electrifying, psychedelic, refreshingly modern, and respectful at the same time. Sharing tonight’s bill (and backed by the Mattsons) is singer/songwriter Astronauts, Etc., AKA Anthony Ferraro, a classically trained pianist whose new album Living in Symbol is a deliciously unhurried set of soulful dream-pop jams. (Sat Sept 22, Jack London Revue, 529 SW 4th) BEN SALMON

Johnny Marr, Belle Game
It’s a shame that Johnny Marr sometimes gets overshadowed by the headline-grabbing nonsense that pours from Morrissey’s mouth these days. Over the past five years, the former Smiths guitarist has released a string of striking pop records that recall the shimmer of his former band’s best album, 1987’s Strangeways, Here We Come. Marr’s new LP Call the Comet is no different, with jangly hooks for days and lyrics that address the caustic political climate we’re currently experiencing by painting a kinder, more empathetic world. Marr has played sideman to artists like Neil Finn, The The, Brian Eno, Billy Bragg, and Modest Mouse. Think about that: The writer of some of the greatest pop songs of all time took a backseat for years before releasing his first solo record. That says as much about Marr as the fact that such incredible musicians sought him out. (Sat Sept 22, Roseland, 8 NW 6th) MARK LORE

STRFKR
STRFKR: It’s short for Starfucker. At one time, the name gave Josh Hodges & Co. a little trouble. They changed it up, but in the end they always returned to their Starfucker source. Touring to celebrate the 10-year-anniversary of their first release, the self-titled album Starfucker, STRFKR wants nothing more than to play their dancey idiosyncratic pop-synth songs as many times as we’ll let them. I’ve got nothing but love for this crew. (Sat Sept 22, 9 pm, Sun Sept 23, 4:30 & 9 pm; Doug Fir, 830 NE Burnside, $25.50-30, Sun 4:30 pm show all-ages) SUZETTE SMITH

Big John Bates: Noirchestra, Stoned Evergreen Travelers
With their new LP Psychedelic Bloodbath, Seattle band Stoned Evergreen Travelers present something wholly unclassifiable. Stand-up bass and fiddle give the album the swagger and bounce of a drunken cowboy—it’s dirty, confident, unpredictable, and potentially dangerous. At times it sounds like stripped-down Americana or rockabilly, but the gruff vocals and crunchy guitar licks add an unexpected edge. The fiddle, present on every track, sounds like it should be coming from the middle of a circle of covered wagons, but it slithers and drips with enough reverb to be completely spooky. Stoned Evergreen Travelers are like everything and nothing you’ve ever heard before. (Sun Sept 23, Dante’s, 350 W Burnside) ARIS HUNTER WALES

Jonathan Wilson, William Tyler
Don’t make the mistake of relegating Jonathan Wilson to the position of second banana: Despite playing in the backing band for Roger Waters—and singing the David Gilmour parts—and serving as producer for Father John Misty, Conor Oberst, and others, Wilson’s solo work is a bounty of far-out delights. All three of his albums for Bella Union are epic double-disc affairs, and explore the far-ranging facets of psychedelic music. The newest, Rare Birds, turns away from the laidback caterpillar smoke-ring sounds of its predecessors in favor of a more yacht-pop vibe with new-age oriented material (to give you an idea, the guest credits include Lana Del Rey and Laraaji). Live, Wilson is in command of truly transporting sound; expect a crack band of seasoned vets and lengthy jam sections. (Mon Sept 24, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) NED LANNAMANN

Miguel, DVSN
Soul singer Miguel’s 2017 album War & Leisure is inspired by psychedelia and luminaries like Prince, Marvin Gaye, and Lenny Kravitz with lots of heavy-reverb guitar and his powerful, soul-drenched vocals. Miguel already showcased the album earlier this year, kicking off a tour leg in Portland back in February. In June, the singer announced this 26-date leg, “The Ascension” North American tour with Canadian R&B duo DVSN. This time, fans can shriek over renditions of “The Thrill,” “Pineapple Skies,” and “Pussy Is Mine,” in the glowy, comfy confines of the Schnitz.

DakhaBrakha
With their matching red-and-black outfits and tall wool hats, DakhaBrakha hypnotized the crowds at Pickathon last month with bewitching sets centered around the chants of Olena Tsybulska, Iryna Kovalenko, and Nina Harenetska. Though they’ve got roots in Ukranian folk, DakhaBrakha draws from a hodge-podge of styles that’s anchored by warbling melodies and percussive elements like goblet drum and table, along with the dissonant sounds of didgeridoo and cajón. The group’s avant-garde aesthetic and self-described “ethno-chaos” sound have attracted curious audiences the world over, and this stop at the Aladdin Theater is sure to be a spectacle of otherworldly proportions. (Tues Sept 25, Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie) RYAN J. PRADO

Kneebody, Donny McCaslin
Saxophonist Donny McCaslin has been riding a wave of welcome attention after his well-honed ensemble was chosen to be the backing band for David Bowie’s final album Blackstar. But the acclaim hasn’t gone to his head, as evidenced by his last Portland appearance, when he and his band soared through a two-hour set of modern jazz punctuated by Mark Linder’s keyboard filigrees and an intuitive rhythm section. Their work will be a fine complement to Kneebody, a fluid ensemble that faces forward as jazz, but is nimble enough to work with the colors of electronica, contemporary classical, and funk. (Tues Sept 25, Star Theater, 13 NW 6th) ROBERT HAM

Natalie Prass, Stella Donnelly
Natalie Prass had a sophomore album written and ready to record. It was an important one, too—a follow-up to her 2015 self-titled debut, a collection of lush and personal songs that earned her rave reviews and prominent placements on several lists of that year’s best albums. But then the 2016 presidential election happened, which threw her for a loop. Prass scrapped that sophomore effort and started working on a new one, and the result is The Future and the Past, a confidently funky record that echoes ’70s-era Diana Ross and ’80s-era Janet Jackson and courses with politically charged energy. Prass wastes no time getting into it, either: “What is truth and what is fear? What is lying to a cheat?” she sings on “Oh My,” the album’s snappy opening track. “And what is freedom for the free?” Maybe someday we’ll hear that album Prass scrapped, but for now, The Future and the Past sounds like the one she needed to make... and the one we needed to hear.

          DIGITAL DIPLOMACY MYTHS      Cache   Translate Page      

http://uscpublicdiplomacy.org/blog/digital-diplomacy-myths


Jul 16, 2018

 

by

Corneliu Bjola

In the introductory chapter to the edited volume on Digital Diplomacy: Theory and Practice that Marcus Holmes and I published four years ago, I asked the question of whether digital technologies could be seen as a harbinger of change for diplomacy by revolutionizing the way diplomats perform their traditional functions of representation, communication and negotiation.

As the question remains valid today, it might be useful to take stock of the common conceptions and misconceptions of digital diplomacy so that we can get a better picture of how digital technologies have shaped expectations about diplomatic practice in the past decade and how digital diplomacy may continue to evolve in the coming years.

The Superman Myth

The first and surprisingly common misconception about digital diplomacy is the Superman myth, which claims that digital technology can grant extraordinary powers to those using them, and in so doing, it can help them increase their diplomatic clout to levels they might otherwise not be able to reach.

It is largely for this reason that small- and medium-sized states (e.g., Sweden, the Netherlands, Mexico, Israel, Australia) have proved so keen adopters of digital diplomacy, as it presented itself to them as a great opportunity to “punch” diplomatically above their political or economic weight. It is thus assumed that by being able to directly reach and engage millions of people, MFAs and their network of embassies could positively shape the views of the global public about the country of origin, and in so doing, they could increase the diplomatic standing of the country in bilateral or multilateral contexts.

The argument has a seductive logic, not least because of the scope, scale and reach that digital diplomacy affords MFAs to pursue. At the same time, it suffers from a structural flaw, namely, that digital technologies constitute a distinct source of power, which, if properly harnessed, can offset deficiencies in hard or soft power. In fact, the way in which digital technologies operate is by creating a platform through which other forms of power can be projected in support of certain foreign policy objectives. In short, the digital cannot give MFAs Superman strength, but it can help them channel the strength they already have more efficiently and productively.

The “Walk in the Park” Myth

The second and fairly entrenched misconception is the “Walk in the Park” myth, which supports the view that “going digital” is easy and that MFAs can successfully pursue their digital diplomatic ambitions with relatively modest investments in training and resources.

The speed by which the global public has migrated to the digital medium reinforces the idea of accessibility of social media platforms and the notion that anyone with basic technical skills can take part, shape and influence online conversations. What this view neglects, however, to acknowledge is the fact that with no clear direction or strategic compass, the tactical, trial-and-error methods by which MFAs seek to build their digital profile and to maximize the impact of their online presence cannot demonstrate their value beyond message dissemination. In other words, the adoption of digital tools without an overarching strategy of how they should be used in support of certain foreign policy objectives runs the risk of digital diplomacy becoming decoupled from foreign policy.

With 3.02 billion people or 38% of the world population expected to be on social media by 2021, a fast-growing rate of global mobile penetration and the anticipated launch of 5G technology in the next few years, the potential for positive and meaningful digital diplomatic engagement is strong and substantial.

The strategic use of digital platforms imposes order on digital activities through the definition of measurable goals, target audiences and parameters for evaluation. The goals determine the target audience, which in turn, determine the platforms, methods and metrics to be used. This implies that training cannot be limited to the art of crafting messages, but it must professionalize itself and focus on developing skills by which digital diplomats can strategically harness the power of digital platforms toward achieving pre-defined and measurable goals.

The Extinction Myth

The third and growing misconception is theExtinction myth, according to which digital diplomacy will gradually replace or make redundant traditional forms of diplomacy.

On the weaker side of the myth, there is the perception that digital technologies have the capacity to fundamentally change how diplomats perform their traditional functions of representation, communication and negotiation to the point that they may even put an “end to diplomacy,” as Lord Palmerstone once similarly quipped when he took notice of the arrival of the telegraph.

Stronger versions of the myth go a step further and acknowledge the possibility of having physical embassies and even diplomats replaced at some point by virtual reality (VR) and artificial intelligence (AI), respectively. While digital technologies have demonstrated clear potential for revolutionizing how diplomats conduct public diplomacy, deliver consular services or manage crises, one should nevertheless be mindful of the fact that the core function of diplomacy that is relationship-building and management cannot be accomplished without close and sustained human contact.

The myth may thus be right about the fact that by increasing efficiency, digital technologies would likely reduce the number of diplomats required to perform certain routine functions. At the same time, the “extinction” hypothesis is hardly credible as the negotiation of human values and interests cannot be delegated to machines, and the amount of trust and mutual understanding that makes the “wheels” of diplomacy turn cannot be built without humans.

The Darth Vader Myth

The fourth and rather dark misconception of digital diplomacy is the Darth Vader myth, which sees the positive potential of digital platforms for engagement and cooperation at risk of being hijacked by the “dark side” of the technology and redirected for propaganda use.

The digital disinformation campaignsattributed to the Russian government, which has allegedly been seeking to disrupt electoral processes in Europe and the United States in recent years, offer credible evidence in support of this view. More worryingly, the digital medium operates in such a way that makes it an easy target for propaganda use.

Algorithmic dissemination of content and the circumvention of traditional media filters and opinion-formation gatekeepers makes disinformation spread faster, reach deeper, be more emotionally charged, and most importantly, be more resilient due to the confirmation bias that online echo chambers enable and reinforce. That being said, one should be mindful of the fact that any technology faces the problem of double use, as the case of nuclear energy clearly illustrates.

Trends are also important to consider. With 3.02 billion people or 38% of the world population expected to be on social media by 2021, a fast-growing rate of global mobile penetration and the anticipated launch of 5G technology in the next few years, the potential for positive and meaningful digital diplomatic engagement is strong and substantial. As long as the prospective benefits of digital diplomacy outweigh the risks, the pollution of the online medium by the “dark side” would likely stay contained, although its pernicious effects might not be completely eliminated.

As we look forward to the digital transformation of diplomacy in the next decade, it is also important to keep in mind the technological context in which MFAs are expected to operate. The 3G mobile technology made possible, for instance, the development and spread of social media networks. The 5G technology, which is due to arrive in just a few years, will likely usher in a whole new level of technological disruption, which could lead to the mass adoption of an entire range of tech tools of growing relevance for public diplomacy, such as mixed reality, satellite remote sensing or artificial intelligence.  

To a certain extent, the future is already here, as the appointment of the first-ever ambassador to the Big Tech industry by Denmark in 2017signaled the arrival of a new form of diplomatic engagement between state and non-state actors and the key role that technology is playing in this transformation.

          The Bitcoin Game #58: Jennifer Zhu Scott      Cache   Translate Page      

Welcome to episode 58 of‚The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. In January of this year, I saw lots of talk about the World Economic Forum's speeches and panels in Davos. Even Donald Trump spoke at this event. But the panel I was most interested in was called The Crypto Asset Bubble, and it featured Nobel Prize Laureate Robert Shiller. I didn't know any of the other panelists, but the one who stuck out to me the most was Jennifer Zhu Scott. She seemed very pro-Bitcoin and was a very eloquent speaker. I wondered why I'd never heard of her before. I immediately invited Jen to be a guest on my podcast, and we finally connected just a bit ago, thanks to Twitter. We cover many topics including the World Economic Forum, her favorite project, China, and her involvement in the hit HBO series, Silicon Valley.

What's wrong with race games? Also, do we mean the same thing by race games? I tend to mean any game that ends when someone accomplishes X and that person wins. So, Can't Stop is a race game. As is Codenames. Ricochet Robots. MtG. Schotten Totten. Chess. Pit. Star Realms.

Or do you mean race themed games? Like TQfED. Candyland. Powerships. PitchCar.
          The just-announced Dyson 360 Heurist robot vacuum can see in the dark      Cache   Translate Page      
Hands-free sounds good to me. Today in Beijing, Dyson announced its newest endeavor: the 360 Heurist. Three years ago was Dyson's first foray into the world of robot vacuuming with the 360 Eye. The newest version brings with it several improvements, which is a good thing considering the reviews the earlier version received. There's a new processor that's 20 times faster. There are new voice assistant capabilities so you can talk to your robot pal with your other robot pals like Alexa or Google. There are more bristles, more suction power, more runtime, and those aren't even the coolest features. "Heurist" likely comes from the word "heuristic", which means "enabling a person to discover or learn something for themselves." That makes perfect sense, because the new 360 Heurist features an LED ring around its top camera. If the lights are off, it won't panic and shut down. It simply "sees" for itself using up to eight of its LED lights. The 360 Eye didn't perform well in the dark, so...
