          Все новинки с сентябрьской презентации Apple 2018 года      Cache   Translate Page      

Завершилась сентябрьская презентация Apple, на которой компания всегда показывает новые устройства. Этот год не стал исключением, но оказался практически лишён сюрпризов: анонсировали только смартфоны и часы.

Тем не менее мероприятие, как и обычно, было красивым и, главное, интересным. Все анонсы — ниже.

iPhone Xs, Xs Max и Xr

Новые iPhone выглядят практически идентично iPhone X, но к серебристому и «серому космосу» добавился ещё и золотой цвет корпуса. Одна из моделей, Xs Max, — огромная, 6,5-дюймовая. Диагональ iPhone Xs — 5,8 дюйма.

Оба смартфона получили улучшенные OLED-дисплеи с поддержкой HDR10 и Dolby Vision, вырез для сенсоров никуда не делся. Стало быстрее работать распознавание лиц через Face ID. Были усовершенствованы водонепроницаемость и стереодинамики.

Внутри у устройств теперь шестиядерный процессор A12 Bionic — первый 7-нанометровый чип Apple. Максимальный объём памяти устройств составляет 512 ГБ.

Камеры смартфонов стали значительно лучше, но по большей части в программном плане. В новом режиме Smart HDR есть как минимум пара интересных фишек. Одна из них позволяет делать снимки мгновенно, совершенно без задержки после нажатия на кнопку спуска затвора. Вторая собирает вместе несколько одинаковых кадров с разной экспозицией и создаёт лучшее возможное изображение.

Оба телефона работают немного дольше, чем их предшественник: Xs — примерно на 30 минут, Xs Max — на полтора часа. Появилась поддержка гигабитных LTE-сетей.

За меньшую модель с 64 ГБ придётся выложить 88 тысяч рублей, за большую — 97 тысяч. Продажи начнутся 28 сентября.

Особняком стоит iPhone Xr — смартфон с 6,1-дюймовым ЖК-экраном с «чёлкой» и системой Face ID. Устройство будет доступно в шести разных цветах: чёрном, белом, синем, коралловом, красном и жёлтом.

У iPhone Xr только одна камера сзади. Рамка сделана не из нержавеющей стали, а из алюминия. Устройство защищено от воды и пыли по стандарту IP67, а не IP68. Нет 3D Touch, но есть виброотклик, примерно как на трекпаде MacBook Pro. Зато процессор установлен такой же, как в Xs и Xs Max.

«Бюджетный» смартфон с 64 ГБ памяти будет продаваться по цене 65 тысяч рублей, также появятся варианты со 128 и 256 ГБ. Apple начнёт принимать предзаказы 19 октября, а поставки стартуют 26 октября.

Apple Watch Series 4

Компания существенно переработала дизайн умных часов. Экран вырос более чем на 30%, став практически безрамочным, закруглённым по краям.

Из-за изменений в дизайне громкость динамика немного выросла, сами часы стали тоньше. Задняя часть устройства теперь выполнена из чёрной керамики, дисплей — из сапфирового стекла.

Внутри у Apple Watch Series 4 новый двухъядерный 64-битный процессор S4. Благодаря ему производительность выросла в два раза.

Также компания обновила акселерометр и гироскоп. Часы поймут, если вы упадёте, и сами вызовут скорую помощь, если вы не будете проявлять активность более минуты.

Более того, Apple Watch Series 4 станут первым потребительским продуктом с возможностью делать электрокардиограмму. Для этого достаточно будет запустить специальное приложение и приложить палец к колёсику.

Минимальная стоимость часов с GPS составит 32 тысячи рублей. В продажу они поступят 28 сентября. Новая watchOS 5 станет доступна 17 сентября.


          Кошмары из реальной жизни: о чём рассказывает «Американская история ужасов»      Cache   Translate Page      

По задумке, каждый сезон «Американской истории ужасов» — вариация на тему какого-нибудь классического ужастика. Причём авторы Райан Мёрфи и Брэд Фэлчак нередко брали за основу реальные события и биографии людей.

Сериал представляет собой антологию, то есть истории не связаны друг с другом, а разных героев играют одни и те же актёры. Так, Эван Питерс и Сара Полсон снялись во всех сезонах.

Стартовавший сейчас «Апокалипсис» впервые нарушает эти правила. Авторы решили столкнуть основных персонажей двух самых популярных историй: «Дома-убийцы» и «Шабаша». По этому случаю будет полезно вспомнить, о чём же рассказывали в каждом сезоне сериала и откуда авторы черпали вдохновение.

1. Дом-убийца

Murder House

Первый сезон антологии посвящён семье Хармонов. Бен (Дилан Макдермотт), его жена Вивьен (Конни Бриттон) и дочь Вайолет (Таисса Фармига) переезжают из Бостона в Лос-Анджелес и селятся в опустевшем доме. Новых обитателей смущает лишь одно: бывший хозяин дома убил своего любовника, а потом покончил с собой.

Почти сразу начинают происходить странные вещи. Вивьен нанимает на работу горничную, которую она видит старухой, а муж — соблазнительной девушкой. К Бену на приём начинает ходить подросток, одержимый убийствами, а человек с обожжённым лицом постоянно убеждает хозяев, что этот дом населён призраками.

И действительно, понять, кто из гостей реален, а кто умер много лет назад, с каждой серией всё сложнее. И в это же время Вивьен беременеет близнецами, один из которых должен стать Антихристом.

В первом сезоне авторы использовали немало реальных историй. Например, рассказ о подростке, расстрелявшем своих одноклассников, основан на трагедии в школе «Колумбайн», а среди призраков дома показывают медсестёр, убитых маньяком Ричардом Спеком в 1966 году.

2. Психбольница

Asylum

Действие второго сезона разворачивается в середине шестидесятых в психиатрической больнице «Брайрклифф», которой управляет жестокая монахиня Джуд (Джессика Лэнг). В лечебницу поступает Кит Уокер (Эван Питерс), подозреваемый в убийствах молодых женщин. А журналистка Лана Уинтерс (Сара Полсон), которая освещает в прессе эти преступления, пытается узнать больше о работе клиники.

В этом сезоне намешано очень много: от опытов над психопатами, которые ставит бывший фашист доктор Артур Арден (Джеймс Кромвелл) до инопланетян, ангела смерти и самого дьявола, вселившегося в одну из монахинь (Лили Рэйб). При этом многие жуткие истории из «Психбольницы» тоже основаны на реальных событиях.

Сам «Брайрклифф» — подобие жуткой школы для умственно отсталых «Уиллоубрук», впоследствии закрытой из-за жестокого обращения персонала с детьми. Доктор Арден явно отсылает к жутким экспериментам Йозефа Менгеле, а ещё один персонаж списан с преступника Эда Гина — прообраза Кожаного Лица из «Техасской резни бензопилой».

К тому же похищение героев инопланетянами напоминает об истории Барни и Бетти Хилл, утверждавших, что они вступили в контакт с НЛО.

3. Шабаш

Coven

От рассказов о призраках и сумасшедших авторы «Американской истории ужасов» перешли к колдовству. Через 300 лет после знаменитого салемского процесса ведьм осталось совсем мало, и они стараются скрывать свои умения.

Очередные нападки приводят юных колдуний в специальную школу в Новом Орлеане. Верховная ведьма Фиона (Джессика Лэнг) ведёт себя агрессивно и хочет защитить свой род. Её дочь Корделия (Сара Полсон) настроена более миролюбиво и просто учит девочек защищаться.

У каждой ученицы есть свои секреты. Зои (Таисса Фармига) отправляется в школу после того, как обнаруживает у себя тёмные силы: она может вызвать кровоизлияние у человека, когда занимается с ним сексом. У Мэдисон Монтгомери (Эмма Робертс) есть способности к телекинезу. Куини (Габури Сидибе) может наносить раны другим, если режет себя. Нэн (Джейми Брюэр) слышит чужие мысли.

В основе сюжета — борьба героинь с ведьмами из других кланов и охотниками за нечистью. И здесь авторы вспоминают интересную мифологию. Анджела Бассетт играет жрицу Мари Лаво, что добавляет магии вуду. Появляется даже Папа Легба — посредник между людьми и духами в культе.

Кроме того, в сезоне присутствует Дельфина Лалори (Кэти Бейтс) — легендарная убийца XVIII века — и даже Новоорлеанский Дровосек, нападавший на людей с топором в начале XX века.

4. Фрик-шоу

Freak Show

Этот сезон посвящён ещё одной классической теме ужастиков — цирку уродов. По большей части здесь просто рассказ о буднях бродячих актёров в пятидесятых годах. Когда они прибывают в город Джупитер, в окрестностях появляется убийца в костюме клоуна. Это вызывает агрессию у жителей, которые и так не доверяют обитателям бродячего цирка.

Здесь Райан Мёрфи буквально пошёл ва-банк. Он пригласил сыграть в сериале действительно необычных людей: Амазонку Ив ростом 203 см, Джоти Амджи ростом 62 см, безногую Роуз Сиггинс и многих других.

У остальных персонажей были реальные прототипы. Эван Питерс играет человека-лобстера с деформированными руками. Наоми Гроссман уже во второй раз появляется в роли Пэппер, что странным образом связывает «Фрик-шоу» с «Психбольницей», где также был этот персонаж. А сама Пэппер и её муж похожи на известного персонажа Шлитци.

Но наверное, интереснее всего выглядит Сара Полсон. Здесь она в роли сиамских близнецов с общим телом.

У клоуна-маньяка Твисти тоже был реальный прототип — Джон Уэйн Гейси. В начале XX века он убил больше 30 человек. А затем в сюжете появляется дух Эдварда Мордрейка — одного из самых известных людей с физическими странностями. У Мордрейка действительно было второе лицо на затылке.

Не менее важно то, что тут Райан Мёрфи попрощался с одной из своих любимых актрис — Джессикой Лэнг. До этого она появлялась во всех сезонах «Американской истории ужасов», но роль хозяйки цирка стала на тот момент для неё завершающей.

5. Отель

Hotel

Детектив Джон Лоу (Уэс Бентли) берётся за расследование серии убийств. Немногочисленные зацепки приводят его в отель «Кортез». И чем дальше он разбирается в происходящих там событиях, тем больше убеждается, что все странности связаны с первым хозяином здания, который превратил его в настоящий лабиринт. И конечно же, далеко не все постоянные обитатели «Кортеза» — живые люди.

В этом сезоне авторы сумели привлечь зрителя новой яркой звездой. В сериале появилась Леди Гага. Ей достался образ сексуальной графини-вампира Элизабет — одной из бывших хозяек отеля.

Эван Питерс на этот раз сыграл первого владельца «Кортеза», который уже призраком каждый год собирает на праздник всех знаменитых маньяков. У этого героя тоже, разумеется, был прообраз — первый известный американский маньяк Генри Говард Холмс, построивший отель со множеством тупиков и ловушек. Он убивал работавших у него девушек и получал за них страховые выплаты.

6. Роанок

Roanoke

В шестом сезоне авторы сериала отошли от традиционного формата. «Роанок» показан в виде псевдодокументального шоу, где якобы участники реальных событий рассказывают о том, что с ними случилось, а актёры отыгрывают за них происходящее. Таким образом одни и те же роли играют сразу по два человека: «настоящий» герой и актёр из шоу. Например, Сара Полсон показывает на экране то, что произошло с персонажем Лили Рэйб.

Что интересно, с середины сезона формат сериала снова меняется и «реальные» герои встречаются с актёрами.

Основная сюжетная линия связана с одной из самых старых американских легенд — бесследно пропавшей английской колонией Роанок. Главные герои переезжают в места, где когда-то обосновались поселенцы, и сталкиваются с их призраками.

Кстати, Леди Гага появилась и в этом сезоне. Здесь она сыграла ведьму Ската из ирландской мифологии.

7. Культ

Cult

Сара Полсон играет женщину, страдающую посттравматическим стрессовым расстройством после трагических событий 11 сентября. У неё появляется множество фобий, которые она пытается излечить. Но после победы Дональда Трампа все её проблемы обостряются. Она даже невольно совершает убийство.

В то же время Кай (Эван Питерс) выдвигает свою кандидатуру на выборах в городской совет, а после этого создаёт культ своих единомышленников, готовых убивать.

В этом сезоне авторы впервые отклонились от идей классических хорроров в сторону социального триллера. Это неудивительно, ведь Райан Мёрфи — ярый противник Трампа. В общем, сезон показывает психологическое состояние многих американцев после выборов президента.

8. Апокалипсис

Apocalypse

12 сентября — старт нового сезона «Американской истории ужасов». Впервые создатели сериала решились на полноценный кроссовер. Ранее только некоторые герои появлялись или упоминались в разных сезонах, что мало влияло на сюжет.

«Апокалипсис» станет одновременно продолжением историй «Дома-убийцы и «Шабаша».

Подробности сюжета пока не раскрывают, но уже известно, что к своим ролям вернулись практически все ведьмы. Также появится Джессика Лэнг и главные герои первого сезона. Также появится повзрослевший Антихрист, родившийся в финале «Дома-убийцы».

При этом Сара Полсон подтвердила, что исполнит сразу три роли: две из предыдущих сезонов и неизвестную новую.

          Apple представила новые умные часы Watch Series 4      Cache   Translate Page      

Как и прежде, устройства будут доступны в двух размерах, однако теперь это не 38 и 42 мм, а 40 и 44 мм. Дисплеи при этом были увеличены на 35% и 32% соответственно. Экранные рамки теперь заметно уже, а дизайн в целом стал более обтекаемым.

Все циферблаты и приложения были переработаны под увеличенные дисплеи. Перед глазами будет больше действительно полезного контента, что особенно заметно на модульном циферблате, который отображает только выбранную вами информацию.

Watch Series 4 получили новый двухъядерный чип S4, который вдвое мощнее процессора прошлого поколения. Помимо скорости работы, была заметно повышена точность измерений частоты сердечного ритма и всех спортивных показателей. Это стало возможным за счёт применения нового пульсомера, акселерометра и гироскопа.

При помощи обновлённых датчиков Apple Watch теперь могут определить, когда вы споткнулись или же поскользнулись. Если после падения вы не встаёте, часы автоматически могут вызвать службу спасения. Правда, эта функция будет доступна только в США.

Watch Series 4 теперь будут предупреждать о слишком медленном сердцебиении и выявлять первые симптомы заболеваний сердца. Более того, часы смогут сделать ЭКГ. Для этого нужно лишь приложить палец к колёсику Digital Crown. Отчёт со всеми показателями будет доступен в приложении «Здоровье».

Apple удалось получить разрешение от Управления по контролю за продуктами и лекарствами (FDA) США, которое одобрило использование часов в качестве медицинского устройства. Это позволяет говорить об очень высокой точности измерений.

Конструкция часов полностью переработана с учётом улучшения приёма сигнала сотовой связи. Кроме того, внутри теперь улучшенный динамик и микрофон, убирающий эхо.

По части автономности кардинальных изменений не последовало. Как и прежде, пользователи смогут рассчитывать на полный день активного использования или до 6 часов в режиме тренировки на открытом воздухе. Специально для спортсменов была представлена и обновлённая версия часов Watch Nike+.

Несмотря на изменения в дизайне и увеличение размеров, Apple Watch Series 4 совместимы с ремешками для часов прошлого поколения. Подойдёт как миланское плетение, так и любые другие браслеты, уже доступные в продаже.

Watch Series 4 (GPS) в России будут стоить от 31 990 рублей. В продаже они появятся уже 28 сентября. Версию Apple Watch Nike+ можно будет заказать на официальном сайте Apple с 14 сентября, а в наличии они появятся 4 октября. Продаж модели с LTE в России пока не предвидится.


          What If Lindsey Graham Isn't Compromised, What If He's Just LIKE THAT?      Cache   Translate Page      


Bob Woodward's book Fear was released Tuesday so someone should get around to reading it to Donald Trump next week (Sarah Huckabee Sanders calls "not it!"). It exposes a great deal of dysfunction within the White House but also reveals the corruption that has seeped out of it like a failed sewer line into other branches of government. Perhaps there's no better or more disappointing example than Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

Graham, of all the Vichy Republicans who capitulated to President Trump, was the loudest Cassandra about candidate Trump. He scathingly summed up Trump in 2015 as a "race-baiting, xenophobic religious bigot ... who doesn't have a clue about anything." Trump didn't spend 2016 at Clue! Academy. He actually ramped up the race-baiting and overall bigotry. Trump's election should've propelled Graham to the front lines of the NeverTrump conservative resistance with Evan McMullin, the guy he actually voted for, but instead he shifted course literally on election night, tweeting that Trump "defied laws about accepting aid from a hostile foreign power the odds and overcame many obstacles to win a stunning victory." Dude, this is the presidency. You're acting like Trump won the 2016 World Series.


Woodward's book describes Graham as playing a "starring role" in the Trump White House, practically "moving in" and attempting to exert his influence because, I dunno, maybe in this "race-baiting, xenophobic" administration he can get the trains to run on time. Collaboration with Trump has become the new "patriotism" and Graham is such a model collaborator, he should strut his stuff on a Paris runway.

Graham quickly wormed his way into Trump's good graces. He flattered him with a bunch of bare-ass lies about how only Trump, "the ultimate deal maker," could "right the ship" in Congress. Yeah, asshole's been divorced twice and sued literally thousands of times, but he'll resolve all the partisan rancor in Washington. This shameless self-abasement was enough to win Graham some golf dates with the putter-in-chief, and Trump pressed him relentlessly on why he wasn't his number one guy.

Trump wanted Graham's "100 percent" support instead of the "82 percent" he believed Graham was putting out (top off but bra still on, etc.). I'm not sure how Trump was getting these figures -- probably Ivanka and a slide rule. Graham massaged the issue, telling him he was a "good commander-in-chief" and that he was "cleaning up" Obama's mess. This satisfied Trump so he later offered Graham an ambassadorship to Pakistan. Graham shrewdly turned this down because he knew what's just where you send away the mistress so she'll stop asking you to leave your wife. He wanted to stay close and push Trump toward his own "hawkish view of foreign policy." Idiots claimed during the election that Trump was less "hawkish" than Hillary Clinton, and even if they were right (idiots usually aren't, though), Graham was actively working to undermine Trump's possibly one good idea. Trump even wondered when we might get around to ending the war in Afghanistan and Graham insisted NEVER! because the "good vs. evil never ends." Yo Joe!

Last September, Graham reportedly advised Trump to "encourage" China to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and replace him with a general "they control." That's gangster shit and is also precisely why so many other nations hate us. Graham isn't even Tom Hagen to Trump's Sonny Corleone. He's like Connie Corleone in The Godfather Part III. If I'm gonna live in a gangster movie, I want it to at least be a good one.

But this doozy Woodward drops regarding Graham and the late John McCain is really sickening.

Torn between his longtime friendship with the late U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and his efforts to influence Trump, Graham worked to repair the relationship between them by arranging a dinner with Trump, McCain and McCain's wife Cindy.

Graham tried to trade his supposed friend's soul for some Groupon promo codes. That's just low. Trump also offered to buy off the McCains by making Cindy an "ambassador focused on human trafficking," which she already does pretty well without him.

Graham later boasted of "managing" McCain so the GOP could screw poor people without the senator's whispers of conscience getting in the way.

Graham said his “chief job is to keep John McCain happy," to keep the senator from bucking his party's leadership," Graham said.

One of the few "good Republican" things about Graham was that he bucked the hardliners in his party on immigration. He was involved in the "Gang of Eight" immigration bill, which wasn't enough to get past the GOP-controlled House. Despite becoming BFFs with repulsive racist Steve Bannon (they spoke "every day" before Bannon left the White House), Graham still tried to promote sane immigration policies, which mostly failed and only resulted in Trump insulting people and eventually jailing immigrant children.

I confess I hoped that Putin had a file a foot deep on Graham, and his whiplash-inducing about-face was a clear indication he was compromised somehow. But Fear raises the very real possibility that Graham just thought he could control the mad king. The New York Times op-ed revealed that a lot of people believe they can use Trump to their advantage. "Fear" isn't strong enough to describe how it feels to learn that people like Graham are willing to look evil in the face, shrug, and say, "Maybe we can cut a deal?"

          The EU Just Broke The Internet And Started A War With Pirates      Cache   Translate Page      


Earlier this morning the EU voted in favor of the Copyright Directive, a controversial update to copyright laws. Publishers are hailing this as a victory, but the rest of the internet has no comment, because it is in the hospice, dying.

The battle lines are drawn on two key provisions: Articles 11 and 13. Called the "link tax" and the "upload filter" by people who don't have their head up their ass, it would force companies like Google and Facebook to pay publishers whenever they link to stories. The upload filter would force Google and Facebook to block people from sharing unlicensed copyrighted news stories, songs, videos, and memes.

Some publishing companies are hailing this as a big win for the little guys, ignoring the fact that IF PEOPLE CAN'T LINK TO YOUR STORIES, NOBODY WILL COME READ YOUR STORIES. According to them, newspapers might finally get paid for journalisming (HARD TO DO WITHOUT PEOPLE READING IT), musicians could move out of their parents' basements (yeah, we don't know, that probably is right), and porn stars wouldn't have to slap politicians on the ass with copies of Forbes to pay the bills. The publishers say that tech companies are just whining because they're finally being held accountable for stealing and sharing content (even if it's already free), and implying that they actually intend to pay artists and journalists.


Since the internet is mostly porn, terrible memes, and bootlegs, nerds are raising their Jolly Rogers and declaring war. They argue that vague provisions in the sweeping new law make it unclear how people can continue to share news articles, blog posts, and bad jokes. There are real fears that the upload filters will cripple the careers of freelance photojournalists, artists, and computer coders who rely on the magic of the internet to share their work and earn beer money.

Where (some) publishing companies see this as a move to finally tamp town on the scourge of internet piracy, actual internet pirates are laughing their caffeinated asses off. When link tax legislation passed in Spain, Google simply pulled their news service. When Germany tried a similar tax on content, people just gave their content to Google for free. And as anyone in China can tell you, content filtering only hurts the general public and encourages people to avoid filters. This often pushes legitimate content deep into the wretched butthole of the Dark Web where it's hard to simply browse the web like you'd channel surf TV late at night.

The effects of the law are broad and prove that people do not have the interest of users in mind. Want to read your favorite snarky news brief? Sorry, the Wonkagenda violates the "link tax." How about listening to classical music and reading old books? Copyrighted, even if it's public domain. Want to download old school Nintendo and Sega games for your kids? Fuck your kids, tell those little shits to come correct! Would you like to browse photos of that big anti-Trump protest? Go have a tough titty pity party, those photos have billboard ads, logos, and branded pink pussy hats -- all copyrighted.

The Copyright Directive isn't up for final approval until January, but it's expected to pass without much resistance. The European Pirate Party has called the law "catastrophic," and is vowing to fight the bill alongside tech giants and internet advocacy groups like the EFF, and the Mozilla Foundation. Americans may scoff at a fight for internet rights in Europe, but they'd be wise to remember that just last week congressional Republicans called for the strict regulation of the internet under the guise of free speech.

Bottom line: the fight isn't about making dick jokes and memes, it's about the freedom to share dick jokes and memes. And since everything is terrible, here's a baby pygmy hippo.

This is another one of our news videos.  Here is the description from our Youtube Channel:

We had two amazing funerals this week, which were amazingly different, for two amazingly different Americans. It was like black and white, literally. Our contention however is that the fight for freedom, for liberty, for making this country a better place, isn”t limited to the military, nor excluded from it. The contrast between these two Americans, and their respective funerals, kept us intrigued through our video.

          Nikki Haley warns of ‘dire’ consequences if Russia and Iran continue attacks on Idlib, Syria      Cache   Translate Page      

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley issued a warning to Russia and Iran today, saying that continued attacks on the last opposition stronghold in Idlib, Syria could result in “dire” consequences. From CNN:

During what was the second session on Idlib in four days, Haley told the council that “the world has seen a clear military escalation” this month by Russia and the Syrian regime, whose forces have conducted more than 100 airstrikes, using “barrel bombs, rockets and artillery” in an attempt to retake the last rebel holdout after more than seven years of war…

“If Assad, Russia and Iran continue down the path they are on, the consequences will be dire,” she said.

“I also want to reiterate what I said last week to the Assad regime and anyone else contemplating the use of chemical weapons in Syria,” Haley added. “The United States followed through when we said that we would respond to the use of chemical weapons. We stand by this warning.”

Secretary of Defense James Mattis declined to say Tuesday whether the US would take military action against the Syrian regime should it use chemical weapons, but he did say Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad has “been warned.”

There are said to be around 3 million people in Idlib, with a large percentage of them children. So the concern is that Assad and Russia are going to use the same strategy here they’ve used in other places in Syria, i.e. Russian airstrikes followed by a siege to cut off food and water and, possibly, the use of chemical weapons. Last week President Trump himself warned Russia and Iran not to “recklessly” attack Idlib Province.

But shortly after that tweet the airstrikes began:

And it’s not just the millions of people who could be impacted. A full-scale attack is likely to create another surge of refugees fleeing the country:

As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo noted, Russia pledged to preserve Idlib as a “deescalation zone” and end the war through diplomacy. Yet it now appears poised to throw its planes behind an assault by the government of Bashar al-Assad, also backed by Iran, to capture the territory by force. Moscow cites the presence of an al-Qaeda-linked rebel group, which controls much of Idlib; Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says it is a “festering abscess” that must be “liquidated.” But the United Nations’ Syria envoy estimates there are only about 10,000 fighters in the extremist group. If they follow their usual modus operandi, the Assad, Iranian and Russian forces will fight them by systematically targeting the civilian population and infrastructure, including food markets, schools and hospitals.

The damage could spread far beyond Syria. A full-scale offensive could send hundreds of thousands of refugees streaming north toward Turkey, where some 3.5 million Syrians already are harbored.

Bottom line, there is a real potential for catastrophe here and Russia and Iran clearly don’t care so long as they can claim victory and prop up their puppet Asssad. If things escalate, and especially if there is another use of chemical weapons, it’s very likely the US will intervene with more than strong words. Here are Nikki Haley’s full remarks.

          Report: Tennis umpires might boycott Serena Williams’s matches over “sexism” claim during U.S. Open fiasco      Cache   Translate Page      

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

The nascent boycott isn’t aimed at Serena as much as it is at the Women’s Tennis Association and U.S. Tennis Association, they say, for backing up her claim that umpire Carlos Ramos was “sexist” in penalizing her at the Open. It’s one thing for a player to behave boorishly towards an umpire who was within his rights to flag her as he did, but for the sport’s governing bodies to pile on? Inexcusable.

If it’s the WTA/USTA they’re mad at, though, then I don’t understand the point of limiting the boycott to Williams. Boycott an entire tournament. Walk. Boycotting Serena exclusively makes it that much easier for her to argue that the umps have it in for her.

Did any umps ever mass-boycott “bad boy” John McEnroe when he had one of his signature on-court aneurysms over a bad call?

“The umpiring fraternity is thoroughly disturbed at being abandoned by the WTA,” Richard Ings, a retired, elite Gold Badge umpire told ESPN.com on Tuesday. “They are all fearful that they could be the next Ramos. They feel that no one has their back when they have to make unpopular calls.”…

The Times of London reported Tuesday “there was a growing consensus that umpires were ‘not supported’ by the USTA on several occasions, and that Ramos was ‘thrown to the wolves for simply doing his job and was not willing to be abused for it’.”

The report also cited an anonymous source who said officials were considering a boycott of future matches involving Williams.

Did the WTA really side with Williams against Ramos? Yeah, pretty much:

WTA chief executive Steve Simon took an opposing view and he appeared to side with Williams’ claims of sexism.

‘Saturday brought to the forefront the question of whether different standards are applied to men and women in the officiating of matches,’ Simon said.

‘The WTA believes that there should be no difference in the standards of tolerance provided to the emotions expressed by men versus women and is committed to working with the sport to ensure that all players are treated the same. We do not believe that this was done last night.

Something that I didn’t know before reading about the boycott chatter: There’s no umpiring union in tennis. That’s one reason why the boycott is unlikely to happen according to the retired official who spoke to ESPN. Another thing I learned is that even elite “Gold Badge” umpires like Ramos who get assigned to the finals of Grand Slam tournaments get paid next to nothing to do so. The Daily Mail says Ramos would have earned less than $500 for the match despite having almost 30 years of experience. Another site notes that “There is also concern that the controversy could have a trickle down effect to the grassroots of tennis where there are struggles to attract people to umpiring.” My goodness. A chilling effect on an entire generation of tennis officials, all because one of them got chewed out by Serena Williams?

I don’t follow the sport closely enough to know for certain but all of this sounds suspiciously like the umpires are seizing on the opportunity presented by the Williams incident as leverage for … something. Presumably better pay. Or maybe some union-minded members are trying to galvanize an appetite among the rest for unionization. Any tennis fans want to correct me on that? I’m open to the possibility that this is nothing more or less than it seems — a group of people who do what they do out of love, for practically no pay, and then have to endure being scapegoated publicly not just by a mega-millionaire superstar but by the entire corrupt establishment that’s in thrall to its golden goose.

Here’s Williams after Saturday’s match.

ONGs levam à ONU nova denúncia de violação a direitos políticos e à democracia no BrasilAO TEM SURUBA 

Missão brasileira apresenta as denúncias na sexta-feira, durante a 39ª sessão do Conselho de Direitos Humanos

Michele Bachelet, Presidente of Chile speaks during Special Session of the Human Rights Council. 29 March 2017.
Por Gustavo Aranda
Cinco organizações da sociedade civil brasileira apresentarão à ONU (Organização das Nações Unidas) um relatório sobre as recentes violações aos direitos humanos e a ruptura do Estado Democrático e de Direito que vêm acontecendo no Brasil, com destaque para a interferência do Poder Judiciário no processo eleitoral. O documento, ao qual os Jornalistas Livres tiveram acesso, será lido e entregue às autoridades internacionais na próxima sexta-feira (14), durante a 39ª sessão do Conselho de Direitos Humanos da ONU.
Caberá à jurista Valeska Teixeira Martins, que compõe a banca de Defesa do ex-presidente Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, relatar todo o caso de perseguição político-jurídica e impedimento eleitoral praticados contra seu cliente, já denunciado pelo próprio Comitê de Direitos Humanos da ONU.
Já Maria José Fariñas Dulce, catedrática de filosofia do direito na Universidade Carlos III (Madrid, Espanha), abordará a seletividade do sistema criminal, os privilégios e as capturas corporativa e ideológica do Sistema de Justiça. De acordo com a especialista espanhola, o Brasil está passando por uma grave situação de retrocesso em suas políticas sociais e de desconstrução de direitos, o que estaria afetando as próprias estruturas democráticas do Estado de Direito. “O problema mais grave começa quando os mecanismos de controle democrático não funcionam e os limites ao poder se dissolvem. Estamos assistindo à normalização de um poder arbitrário no Brasil que não aceita seus próprios limites.”
Completam a missão brasileira: Rafael Valim, professor de Direito Administrativo da PUC-SP (Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo), especialista em estudos sobre o autoritarismo e o estado de exceção; Darci Frigo, da ONG Terra de Direitos e Plataforma Dhesca Brasil; Flávio Vicente Machado, do Conselho Indigenista Missionário; e Leila Rocha, liderança indígena Guarani-Ñandeva. O documento ainda leva assinatura da ONG Justiça Global e FIAN Brasil.
Teor do relatório
O relatório das organizações brasileiras aponta o sistema judiciário do país como elemento estrutural da política de retrocessos: “Em tempos de austeridade, onde um quarto da população vive com menos de 387 reais (90 dólares) por mês, a extrema pobreza já atinge mais de 14 milhões de pessoas. Enquanto isso, o Supremo Tribunal Federal aprova um reajuste salarial de 16,38% para magistrados”, apontam os especialistas.
A perseguição aos movimentos sociais e a crescente violência contra defensores dos direitos humanos são outras preocupações da missão brasileira, que deve lembrar ao Alto Comissariado que as investigações sobre a execução de Marielle Franco e Anderson Gomes seguem sem chegar a qualquer resultado prático e nenhuma prestação dos trabalhos até aqui executados.
Alta Comissária Michelle Bachelet
Na segunda-feira (10), quem abriu os trabalhos da 39ª sessão do Conselho de Direitos Humanos da ONU foi Michelle Bachelet, ex-presidente do Chile e presidente do Conselho.
Em seu primeiro discurso à frente do órgão, Bachelet lembrou o aniversário de 70 anos da Declaração Universal dos Direitos Humanos, afirmando ser “um compromisso com valores e políticas que proporcionaram inúmeros benefícios a milhões de pessoas”.
Lembrou do início da sua trajetória política no Chile: “Eu fui presa política e filha de presos políticos. Esta é a véspera do dia em que nós, os chilenos, marcamos a memória do golpe de Estado, há 45 anos, e os anos seguintes de opressão e derramamento de sangue brutais. Meu país conheceu a dor e o terror da tirania. Mas tenho orgulho de dizer que conseguimos superar as divisões e enfrentar grandes desafios – moldar instituições que possibilitem maior participação e maior liberdade, justiça e dignidade para nosso povo”.
Para Bachelet, o Conselho tem a responsabilidade de denunciar todas as violações de direitos humanos, “independentemente de sexo, identidade de gênero, raça ou etnia, religião, deficiência ou status de migração, ou outras características. Independentemente do tipo de regime político em um determinado país, o Conselho de Direitos Humanos tem o dever de defender e ajudar melhorias transformadoras na defesa de todos os direitos”.
Conselho de Direitos Humanos das Nações Unidas
A 39ª sessão do Conselho de Direitos Humanos das Nações Unidas, que ocorre no Palais des Nations, em Genebra, Suíça, começou no dia 10 e terminará dia 28 deste mês.
O Conselho de Direitos Humanos realiza três sessões regulares por ano, num total de pelo menos dez semanas. Caso um terço dos Estados Membros solicitarem, o Conselho pode decidir a qualquer momento realizar uma sessão especial para abordar violações de direitos humanos e emergências.

Marcia Tiburi, candidata do PT ao governo do Rio de Janeiro, afirmou que pretende articular as polícias do estado com a Polícia Federal e fez críticas à Intervenção Federal. “O Exército está sendo humilhado”, disse. Tiburi foi a segunda entrevistada na série de sabatinas do G1 e da CBN, que vai até o dia 25.
Ainda sobre segurança, Tiburi afirmou que pretende transformar as UPPs existentes em “Centros de Defesa da Cidadania”, com policiais e psicólogos. “Temos que usar a inteligência, cancelar essa guerra. Não vamos mais produzir uma polícia que mata. Quem fala que ‘bandido bom é bandido morto’ não entende de segurança”, afirmou.
A petista afirmou que não manteria a intervenção. “As pessoas foram convencidas de que a Intervenção é a única saída. Não podemos manter. Os números não são bons. Mais mortes, mais tiroteios. Vendem uma ideia de que estão resolvendo”, afirmou.
“Se as nossas polícias estiverem organizadas, não precisaremos do Exército. O Exército está sendo humilhado”, continuou.
Tiburi também prometeu melhorar a formação dos policiais. “O PM hoje está tão abandonado e desprotegido quanto o cidadão”, afirmou, criticando o “Estado genocida que manda matar e deixa morrer”.
Machismo
A professora admitiu que não é muito conhecida. “É uma tentativa de renovar o PT do Rio de Janeiro”, explicou. Na sequência, falou sobre o machismo na política.
“As mulheres nunca fazem parte da política. Os homens usam a violência contra as mulheres, numa sociedade patriarcal como a nossa, para se manter no poder. Tanto que a gente vê essa equação funcionando”, disse.
“O RJ é o estado com a maior população feminina do Brasil e tem a penúltima menor representação parlamentar, perdendo só para o Espírito Santo. Podemos dizer que o Rio de Janeiro é muito machista”, continuou.
“As mulheres sempre ficaram de fora. Os homens destruíram o Estado do Rio.”
Corrupção
A petista afirmou que não apoiaria futuras ações da Lava Jato no estado caso seja eleita. “A Lava Jato não é honesta. Houve muita propaganda. Fizeram o golpe e usaram a Lava Jato de verniz”, disse.
“Qualquer governante honesto precisa enfrentar a corrupção. Não é só o pequeno roubo, o grande roubo, produzido do desvio. A corrupção está no sistema”, disse.
“Não adianta simplesmente combater um Cabral e não combater todo o time que o acompanha há muito tempo. Não adianta o PT lutar contra a corrupção e o próprio PT não fazer uma renovação do seu quadro, o que está se propondo com a minha candidatura”, continuou Tiburi.
Tiburi justificou sua candidatura dizendo que “as viúvas do Cabral têm de se acostumar com novos nomes”. “Estamos num golpe de Estado. O PT ficou muito atrelado ao PMDB e aos donos do Rio de Janeiro”, disse. “As pessoas não sabem que sou candidata. Não sou conhecida. Não faço parte desse grupo. Tem uma certa corja que toma conta do Rio de Janeiro”, emendou.
Tiburi afirmou que, ao contrário do caso do Lula, “as provas de Cabral existem”. Segundo a candidata, ele cometeu “atos delirantes, crimes horríveis”.

Is parenting without a smartphone even possible anymore? There’s an app to record your newborn’s feeding and sleeping schedules, one to monitor homework, and another app to see what your toddler is up to at daycare, not to mention the dozens offering advice on how to parent in the first place. And that’s just apps – which are the relatively easy-to-use and straightforward aspects of this digitalised world we live in.

Digital natives  
Technology is becoming more and more prevalent in all aspects of life, and your child’s classroom is no exception. There’s a name for this new generation of learners: digital natives. And we’re raising them. Which means today’s learning environment may feel completely foreign to the tech-hesitant parent.

These days, students are doing homework online, schools are implementing monitored iPad use in class, teachers keep parents abreast via educational apps, and websites and YouTube links are a central part of at-home learning. Parents are naturally left with a lot of questions regarding media and technology as they try to better understand how and what their children are learning...

Download the apps  
Most schools these days have apps that parents need to download. There’s the D6 Communicator app, which allows you to choose your school from a list of education facilities around the world, in order to receive daily news and updates. SeeSaw is another, used by institutions such as Raha International School in Abu Dhabi and Greenfield Community School in Dubai, which students and teachers use during school hours so parents can see what their children are learning; and the iCare app, favoured by nurseries, including CreaKids in Dubai, which gives parents a glimpse of their children’s activities and day-to-day experiences.

          クライアントサイド JavaScript のパフォーマンス改善には backburner.js が便利!      Cache   Translate Page      

DOM 処理や Ajax など、JavaScript が外の世界とやり取りする部分というのは、一般的に待ち時間を多く必要とします。

パフォーマンスを改善しようと思った時に、ロジック部分でコツコツと節約するより、まずコストが高い処理を行わないようにするということで、驚くほどの効果を経験をされたことはありませんか?

今までパフォーマンス測定をされた方であればピンとくる部分があることと思います。

そんな時に役に立つのが、今回ご紹介する backburner.js です。

backburner.js って?

backburner.js とは Ember.js の run loop モジュールから切りだされたとても小さなライブラリで、短時間に集中的に発生するメソッド呼び出しの回数を制限したい場合などに利用することができます。

backburner.js ってどう使うの?

例えば、JavaScript で特定のイベントハンドラ内で Ajax 通信を行う場合を考えてみましょう。

$('.action-area').on('mousemove', function(event) {
    // マウス位置を Ajax で送信
});

この例だと、.action-area 要素の上でマウスが動く度にマウス位置を Ajax で送信することになります。WebSocket でやり取りをしている場合でも無い限り、ここまで頻繁に通信を行うことはサーバにとって余分なコストとなる場合があります。

そこで backburner.js です。 上の例を以下のように書きなおしてみましょう。

var backburner = new Backburner(['send']);

function sendMousePoint() {
    var event = this;
    // マウス位置を Ajax で送信...
};

var wait = 100;

$('.handle-area').on('mousemove', function(event) {
   backburner.debounce(event, sendMousePoint, wait);
});

backburner.debounce を使うことで、引数で指定されたメソッドは、同一の Function であれば一定の時間間隔(wait = 100 ms)の中で 1回しか実行されません。 とてもエコロジーですね。

また、いわゆる MVC フレームワークにおいて、モデルの変更をビューがバインドしていて、かつモデルに頻繁に更新が発生するといった場合についても応用出来ます。

これについては、 backburner.js の README に素晴らしくわかりやすいサンプルコードがあるので、こちらを見てみましょう。

モデルのプロパティをひとつひとつ変更していく、というのはよくありえるシチュエーションだと思います。

上述の例のように backburner.js を使うことで、チラツキやもっさり感の原因になりえる DOM の頻繁な更新を抑制することができます。

もっと知りたくなった方は、作者の ebryn さんの発表動画とその資料をみてみると良いかもしれません。

それでは、みなさまも backburner.js のすばらしさをご体感くださいませ!

          Diagnosing Heart Diseases with Deep Neural Networks      Cache   Translate Page      

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.

sax_5 sax_9 sax_10 sax_11 sax_12 sax_15
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:

Layer Type Size Output shape

Convolution 128 filters of 3x3 (8, 25, 128, 64, 64)

Fully connected (S/D) 2 units (mu and sigma) (8, 25, 2)

Gaussian CDF (S/D)   (8, 600)

* 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.

Assassin S Creed Odyssey

Ubisoft sigue adelante con la promoción de 'Assassin's Creed Odyssey' y a los numerosos tráileres que ha publicado hasta el momento se une un nuevo vídeo correspondiente al anuncio del juego que se podrá ver en la televisión.

Pese a que no enseña algo especialmente revelador, sí que nos deja con unas cuantas escenas de algunas de las secuencias y cinemáticas que presenciaremos durante esta aventura que nos llevará a la Antigua Grecia, sobre la que la compañía gala ha tratado de recrearla lo más fiel posible.

Assassin S Creed Odyssey 11

Entrer esos momentos que viviremos estarán unos emocionantes combates, unas batallas navales cargadas de acción y hasta en algún momento aparece la temible Medusa, sobre la que ya vimos hace no mucho un completo gameplay dedicado a ella. Y por supuesto en el vídeo no podía faltar la mítica patada que hemos visto tantas veces que imita a la de Leónidas en la película '300'.

Desde luego la compañía gala ha puesto toda la carne en el asador en lograr que 'Assassin's Creed Odyssey' se convierta en una de las mejores entregas de toda la franquicia y con la que tendremos entretenimiento para rato, ya que está previsto que reciba nuevos contenidos a lo largo del año que viene. Pero lo primero es lo primero y su lanzamiento se producirá en Xbox One, PlayStation 4 y PC el próximo 5 de octubre.

          Las cuatro claves de Starlink: Battle for Atlas, el ambicioso shooter con naves modulares      Cache   Translate Page      

1

Ubisoft no teme apostar a lo grande por crear nuevas licencias. El mejor ejemplo lo encontramos en 'Starlink: Battle for Atlas', un shooter que nos ofrece la posibilidad de luchar contra un poderoso ejército a lo largo y ancho de todo un sistema solar. Sin duda, uno de sus proyectos más ambiciosos.

Luchar contra fuerzas extraterrestres es algo que llevamos viendo desde los orígenes de los videojuegos, pero lo verdaderamente interesante son los elementos que Ubisoft Toronto añade a la experiencia, empezando por un sistema modular de naves, pilotos y accesorios que nos permitirá adaptarnos a cualquier situación sobre la marcha.

Eso sí, 'Starlink: Battle for Atlas' no es un simple regreso a los toys-to-life: la compañía gala promete ser una propuesta redonda, asentándose en cuatro pilares esenciales. Cuatro claves que son presentadas en propiedad en su nuevo tráiler.

Por ponernos en contexto, Atlas es un sistema de triple estrella compuesto por siete planetas. Nuestro propósito principal será liberar el sistema del control de la Legión Olvidada liderando a un equipo de pilotos interestelares. Y si apostamos por la versión de Switch, Fox McCloud también se unirá a la batalla.

Ahora bien, ¿qué podemos esperar del juego?

El sistema de personalización Starlink

1

Cada uno de los starter pack de 'Starlink: Battle for Atlas' incluye un adaptador para el mando de cada sistema (Switch, PS4 y Xbox One), así como diferentes armas, una nave y al menos un piloto.

Además, saldrán diferentes módulos extra con los que podremos acceder a nuevas armas y habilidades, simplemente añadiendo o retirando los elementos. Y el proceso es tremendamente sencillo. Como detalle, durante el juego podremos mejorar los modulos de manera individual y acceder a nuevas y mejores habilidades.

Exploración al estilo "mundo abierto"

1

El sistema de exploración y viajes interplanetarios es tan sencillo como directo: tendremos siete planetas a nuestra disposición. bastará con acercarnos a cualquiera de ellos y, a partir de ahí, podremos controlar nuestras naves levitando sobre su superficie. ¿Queremos volver al espacio?, entramos en modo vuelo y apuntamos el morro hacia el cielo.

El sistema de mundo abierto nos permitirá explorar varios biomas muy contrastados, pero habrá todo tipo de misiones. Algunas serán de exploración, en otras deberemos transportar cargas (añadiendo algún matiz plataformero en el proceso) y en buena parte de ellas tendremos que luchar contra toda clase de enemigos. Algo de lo que hablaremos luego.

Una trama en la que participan toda clase de protagonistas

1

A diferencia de otros shooters espaciales, Ubisoft Toronto se ha preocupado por ofrecer una trama y desarrollar unos protagonistas con su propio carácter. De hecho, no solo habrá un trasfondo, sino que cada piloto de 'Starlink' dispone de una habilidad única que podremos usar a nuestro favor en el juego.

Por otro lado, entablaremos alianzas con otras civilizaciones a lo largo de esta aventura, a veces tendremos que rescatarlos y otras intentar que colaboren entre ellos. ¿El objetivo en común? Contener la invasión de la Legión Olvidada.

Un sistema de combate sólido

1

Por último, pero no menos importante, el sistema de combate saca partido del intercambio de módulos, de las posibilidades de cada planeta y de las habilidades únicas de cada piloto, pero también nos permite hacer toda clase de maniobras tanto en tierra como en el espacio.

Tendremos que enfrentarnos a enemigos de todos los tamaños, lidiar con asteroides durante nuestros viajes en el espacio y adaptar nuestras armas y añadidos a las circunstancias. Y sí, es posible hacer el icónico barrell roll para esquivar proyectiles enemigos.

1

Ubisoft adelanta que sólo necesitaremos el Starter Pack para completar la aventura, aunque uno de los aspectos más divertidos es experimentar con los diferentes módulos, de modo que podremos mejorar nuestra capacidad ofensiva e incluso ganar movilidad o velocidad.

Los starter packs de 'Starlink: Battle for Atlas' para Xbox One, PS4 y Nintendo Switch, así como los sets de naves, pilotos y módulos extra estarán disponibles a partir del próximo 16 de octubre.

          Here's how to buy into no waiting at Disney's Toy Story Land      Cache   Translate Page      
By Robert Niles: Ever since Toy Story Land opened earlier this summer in Disney's Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort, getting reservation times to ride its two new attractions have been among the top Fastpass+ goals for many Disney visitors.

So of course now Disney is offering an alternative for guests who are willing to pay extra to get a no- or low-wait-time visit in the resort's newest land. Disney World is extending its Early Morning Magic program for Disney's Hollywood Studios guests, allowing them 90 minutes of extra time in the land for $79 plus tax per adult and $69 per child (ages 3 to 9).

Unlike the Disney After Hours event we wrote about last week, this is not a hard-ticket event that is separate from regular park admission. You must have a DHS ticket in addition to the Early Morning Magic to get into the park for the extra time. But Disney is also throwing in a breakfast to help make the value proposition more appealing to visitors.

The event starts at 7:30 am on select Mondays and Wednesdays (as not to conflict with the Extra Magic Hours that Disney's on-site hotel guests at no extra charge). That gets you 90 minutes of reduced crowd time in the land to ride the Slinky Dog Dash family roller coaster, Alien Swirling Saucers spinner ride, and Toy Story Mania before the park opens officially to everyone at 9am.

Breakfast will be served for participating guests at the ABC Commissary between 8:30-10am, so the strategic play here would be to ride as much as you can or care to first, then hit up the breakfast after the park opens and the land fills with day guests.

Note that the ABC Commissary is not located in Toy Story Land, where the only eatery is the walk-up Woody's Lunchbox window. The spread will include a choice of breakfast entree, along with a buffet of yogurt, cereal, fruit, and pastries so that you can eat as much value as possible before heading back into the park for the rest of your day.


          Busch Gardens Tampa gets a Sky Rocket for 2019      Cache   Translate Page      
By Robert Niles: The SeaWorld theme park chain announced its third installation of a Premier Rides Sky Rocket II roller coaster, with Tigris coming to Busch Gardens Tampa in 2019.

The ride will be Florida's tallest launch coaster when it opens next spring. It follows this year's debut of Electric Eel at SeaWorld San Diego and 2015's installation of Tempesto at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.

The Sky Rocket features three launches — two forward and one backward — reaching a top speed of 62 mph on a 150-foot tall circuit. The top of the loop features a heartline roll that seems glacially slow compared with the launches, providing a thrilling inversion with what should be an impressive park view...

Assuming, of course, that you keep your eyes open while hanging upside down 150 feet in the air.

Here's my on-ride video from Electric Eel, followed by Russell Meyer's on Tempesto, if you'd like an idea of what a ride on Tigris will be like:

As you probably guessed from the ride's name, it will have a tiger theme, as Busch Gardens Tampa explained in its press release.

The Tigris queue will include educational content about the plight of tigers in the wild and what conservationists – including the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund – are doing to help save them. In addition, the purchase of any merchandise in the Tigris gift shop will help make a difference, with 5% of the sales price donated to the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund to protect tigers and their habitat.

In addition, the park teased that it will build another thrill ride for 2020, in the Gwazi area of the park. Anyone want to take a guess on what that will be? ;^)

The other night, or more accurately yesterday, I was reading Youtube comments about roasting cauliflower. The specific site, The Stay At Home Chef, shared her recipe for roasting cauliflower. Another site, LeGourmetTVRecipes, questioned the 425°F roasting temperature. They believed the ideal temp is between 500-550°F. If they thought 425 was low then they need to […]

          Pronta para a Luta | Estreia a 13 de Setembro      Cache   Translate Page      

pronta para a luta.jpg

Angela (Michèle Laroque) pensa que tem uma vida ideal. Vive em Nice, num belo apartamento, com um marido atraente e uma charmosa filha adolescente.

Contudo, na noite de Natal, a filha deixa-a para ir ter com o namorado, o marido anuncia que quer a separação e a sua melhor amiga toma soporíferos ao invés de passar a noite com Angela.

Face a tudo isto, Angela não tem outra escolha senão reinventar-se. Isso não é fácil, tendo em conta que tem de lidar com uma mãe tirana, uma melhor amiga histérica e um psiquiatra com métodos muito experimentais.

Uma comédia romântica francesa tem tudo para dar certo e foi isso que pensei com Pronta para a Luta, onde em plena véspera de mais um Natal a filha de Angela, Lea, lhe comunica que não irá passar a noite da consoada em casa e o marido termina o casamento de anos. Abandonada na noite mais familiar do ano, Angela vê-se sozinha quando percebe que nunca passou a noite comemorativa do nascimento de Jesus com a sua própria mãe, restando-lhe a melhor amiga, Charline, que também está nem aí para a época. 

Um jantar a ser preparado para a família e de um momento para o outro a solidão abatesse numa mulher que vive para os outros e deixou muito por fazer ao longo da vida. Uma noite de Natal diferente de tantas outras e um futuro instável adivinham-se. 

A solução para o que está para vir é mesmo reinventar-se, procurando ajuda do seu psiquiatra Steinman, refugiar-se junto da sua tresloucada melhor amiga e aproximar-se de uma mãe que parece ser a dona da razão. É a partir daqui que Angela começa a alterar o seu dia-a-dia, ganhando uma nova vida, aprendendo a conviver, procurando novas experiências e pretendendo alcançar um novo tipo de felicidade, mesmo que para isso tenha que cair e cometer vários erros até acertar no novo caminho a seguir. 

Uma paixão desde logo sentida no início de toda a história entusiasma no decorrer da película, mesmo com os saltos de percurso que vão sendo dados a favor de uma história não tão direta como poderia ser. No geral acho que esta é daquelas comédias francesas, mais uma, que serve perfeitamente para ver em família num final de tarde de fim-de-semana. Bem disposta, nada exagerada, com personagens caricatas e particulares e com um enredo simples mas com um bom encadeamento lógico sem criar demasiadas expetativas. 

Uma comédia leve com um elenco bem composto numa narrativa que tem como mote o sentido da vida,  aplicando a ideia do recomeçar de novo com a vontade de ser feliz e fazer melhor. 

Pronta para a Luta estreia a 13 de Setembro de 2018 nos Cinemas.

          Место для дуэли. "Новая" предлагает провести поединок Золотова и Навального на территории роскошного поместья в Барвихе, которым вот уже 15 лет владеет сын директора Росгвардии      Cache   Translate Page      

Директор Росгвардии Виктор Золотов "вызвал на дуэль" Алексея Навального. Таким образом Золотов спустя длительное время (раньше не мог, потому что был в командировке) ответил на расследование ФБК о закупках еды для нужд Росгвардии. "Я просто вызываю вас на поединок. На ринг, на татами - куда угодно, где за несколько минут обещаю сделать из вас хорошую сочную отбивную", - пообещал главнокомандующий войсками национальной гвардии оппозиционному политику.

Нужно отдать должное смелости Виктора Золотова: во-первых, он стал чуть ли не единственным высокопоставленным чиновником, решившимся назвать Навального по фамилии; а во-вторых, свое обращение он опубликовал как раз в то время, когда директор ФБК отбывает 30 суток ареста в спецприемнике, где нет интернета. Поэтому о "вызове на дуэль" узнают многие зрители YouTube, но не тот, кого вызвали.

Но если Навальный согласится на сатисфакцию (когда выйдет на свободу), то "Новая газета" нашла идеальное, на наш взгляд, место для дуэли. Мы предлагаем провести поединок на просторной территории роскошного поместья с прудами, лужайками и садами.

Этот дворец находится на Рублевке, в, пожалуй, самом дорогом месте России - Барвихе. А владеет им вот уже 15 лет сын директора Росгвардии Роман Золотов. Золотову-младшему очень повезло: он стал обладателем недвижимости стоимостью несколько миллионов долларов в 23 года (многие нынешние бойцы Росгвардии как раз пришлись бы ему сверстниками). В то время его отец, Золотов-старший, руководил службой безопасности президента России Владимира Путина.

"Вы изделие из американской пробирки, вы все клоны. Естественно, конечно же, вы марионетки... Вы гнилые внутри, трухлявые. У вас нет ни духовности, ни нравственности абсолютно. Вы, господин Навальный, никогда не получали ответку... Вам никто никогда не давал как следует по заднице. Да так, чтобы вы печенкой это прочувствовали", - в таких выражениях главнокомандующий войсками национальной гвардии грозил Навальному.

Такой гнев у Золотова вызвало расследование ФБК, опубликованное в конце августа этого года. Напомним, ФБК тогда обнаружил, что председатель правительства Дмитрий Медведев наделил ранее малоизвестную фирму из Крыма эксклюзивным правом поставок всего продовольствия для войск национальной гвардии, и, по данным госконтрактов, цены на поставляемые товары (лук, капусту и другие) тут же значительно выросли по сравнению с ценами на те же продукты от предыдущих поставщиков.

[Eric Upchurch]

image-6_thumb_thumb5

SPONSOR NOTE: HomeSure Lending will provide you a mortgage. It's a simple process, really: some tax returns, maybe some other stuff, and then Matt contacts various lenders to see who will provide the best deal. It is a quick process, as well, and one where you know the guy providing your mortgage has your best interests at heart because he gets business through word of mouth and MGoBlog advertising. Also he has opinions you can talk about related to Michigan in down times.

FORMATION NOTES: About 50/50 between shotgun and other stuff, with an emphasis on TEs and WRs—just 12 fullback snaps for Mason. Nothing stood out as unusual. WMU responded with a four-man front on every play and some rolled up safeties... sometimes absurdly so.

This was less of a problem for the run game than you'd think but RBs did have to dodge these guys at the line from time to time. The flipside was the Nico Collins touchdown, which was super easy because a safety lined up at eight yards.

SUBSTITUTION NOTES: Same OL as the opener. Second team was Mayfield/Filiaga/Spanellis/Honigford/Hudson. QBs went Patterson, McCaffrey, Peters. Higdon and Evans got closer to equal reps with Wilson indeed the #3. WR rotation was pretty much the same as the opener, with DPJ and Collins clear-ish starters on the outside and Martin the only guy rotating in much. TEs were the same.

Muhammad, Schoonmaker, Turner, Milton, and Hayes not getting in strongly implies redshirts are coming for them.

[After THE JUMP: I am down with the G]

Ln Dn Ds O Form RB TE WR D Form Box Type Play Player Yards
M28 1 10 Shotgun 2TE tight 1 2 2 4-3 even 7.5 Pass TE out Gentry 10
CB blitz with Gentry running a two yard out right where the blitz came from. Patterson IDs and throws, nice catchable ball that Gentry turns up for a first down. (CA, 3, protection 1/1)
M38 1 10 I-Form 2 1 2 4-3 over 7.5 Penalty False Start JBB -5
JBB -1.
M33 1 15 Shotgun trips 1 1 3 Nickel over 6 Run Inside zone Higdon 2
Patterson(-2) has a clear keep read with the backside end crashing and gives instead. DE doesn’t screw it up. This is a solid gain and maybe a bust right to the second level if DE shuffles, with Bredeson(+1) driving his man about two yards downfield and Ruiz(+1) finding and kicking a blitzball LB. Higdon’s about to test that gap and either Bredeson’s guy gets him or he’s to the secondary when the DE tackles.
M35 2 13 Shotgun twin TE H twins 1 2 2 4-3 even 7.5 Run Power O Higdon 2
Playside DE slanting and trying to stick as close to the releasing JBB as possible. McKeon(-1) is a beat slow realizing this and allows some penetration. This penetration picks off Bredeson(-1) but Bredeson should be able to get around this. Instead he stops and refocuses on the DE. Higdon(+0.5) cuts behind into this gap and is almost able to dodge the free LB but gets tripped up after juking him to the ground.
M37 3 11 Shotgun trips 1 1 3 Nickel even 6 Pass Flare screen Evans 0
Conservative, but at least it’s Evans-focused? McKeon(-2) is supposed to crack the playside LB and releases way too deep and waits for him to try to get outside. Instead he just runs upfield. WMU appears to leave NT in spy zone so he flows out in the midst of Ruiz and Bredeson. Those two guys have Evans bracketed and by the time he WOOPS the linebacker the cavalry has arrived. (CA, 3, screen, RPS -1)
Drive Notes: Punt, 0-0, 13 min 1st Q.  
Ln Dn Ds O Form RB TE WR D Form Box Type Play Player Yards
M19 1 10 Shotgun twin TE H 1 2 2 4-3 under 7 Run Jet sweep Thomas 6
Technically a touch pass so delete one passing attempt for Patterson. WMU seems to feel this is coming and a S comes up to hit Eubanks at the LOS. Thomas goes around this to the edge, which is open as DPJ(+1) had a long long block on a CB who didn’t press the issue much. Thomas(+1) is both fast and able to fend off Eubanks’s guy.
M25 2 4 Ace 3TE 1 3 1 4-3 over 9 Pass Waggle comeback Martin 8
WMU blitzes into this but the LB initially checks inside run instead of running directly at Patterson. This gives Patterson a window, but not much of one. He’s rolling away from his throwing arm but manages to set up and fling a sideline dart to Martin for an inch perfect conversion. Dang. (DO+, 1, protection N/A, RPS -1)
M33 1 10 Shotgun trips 1 1 3 Nickel under 6 Run Inside zone Higdon 4
WMU exchanges on the backside. JBB(+1) does a good job to fend off the shuffling DE and then affect the LB once he reads the handoff and attacks. Ruiz can’t help Onwenu(-1) as he’s got a blitzball LB coming to him; Ruiz(+0.5) does handle him. Bredeson(+1) stays attached through an attempted rip and drives his guy upfield, creating the hole. Higdon(+0.5) finds it after a slight delay and hits it. Onwneu’s guy pops off and grabs him just as he’s about to break through.
M37 2 6 Ace 2TE tight 1 2 2 4-3 under 8.5 Run Inside zone Higdon 4
LB level is spread out by M’s formation and slants away. Bredeson(+1) and Ruiz(+1) pick up the NT and shove him four yards downfield. Runyan(-1) has a DE slant outside of him and passes him up. He then checks the second level and decides not to go get a safety creeping down. He also doesn’t stop and stall the DT now inside of McKeon, who’s trying but has no angle to do anything with this guy. Higdon cuts behind the huge blowout block and gets tackled from the side by DT.
M41 3 2 I-Form Big twin TE 2 2 1 4-3 under 8.5 Run Down G Higdon 43
Power with a playside guard pull and he kicks out as the FB jets through the gap. Onwenu(+1) pulls and gets a blitzer. Mason(+3) HAMMERS the playside LB back into an overhang corner. Gentry(+0.5) and McKeon(+0.5) both get relatively easy blocks done. JBB might hit his guy too hard? He nails the guy, and then that guy spins off, giving ground to get around, and JBB can only chase him to Higdon. Not really his fault. Higdon(+2) runs through that attempted arm tackle and then cuts back behind a safety, setting sail into the open field. S was able to slow him enough to prevent a TD.
O16 1 10 I-Form Big twin TE 2 2 1 5-3 under 9 Run Down G Higdon 0
Back to the well. To the other side. WMU has something on to defeat it this time, with a five-man line featuring a playside end who dives inside the puller and a double eagle front that allows the NT to split Ruiz(-2) and Onwenu; Ruiz leaves immediately without getting a brush on the NT and Onwenu can’t do anything with that. Ruiz then doesn’t get a second level block, targeting the guy Gentry is targeting. Runyan(+0.5) turns in a guy slanting away from him pretty well. Other blocks are push-ish and untested because of the WMU dive and the Ruiz issue. RPS -1.
O16 2 10 Ace 2TE tight 1 2 2 4-3 over 7 Pass Waggle TE flat McKeon 16
Man I don’t know how you let this happen on second and ten. PA fake sucks in the entire LB level and the backside S to the point where McKeon can turn up the standard TE flat route on a waggle for a TD. (CA, 3, protection N/A, RPS +2)
Drive Notes: Touchdown, 7-0, 7 min 1st Q.  
Ln Dn Ds O Form RB TE WR D Form Box Type Play Player Yards
M33 1 10 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 over 6.5 Run Down G Higdon 67
Playside DT seems to bust hard. He jets outside. DE jets outside. Bredeson(+1) gets a good widening kick on the DT and the DE is gone too. Ruiz does the run-by on a nose tackle who dives inside of him; NT has occupied nobody and is run by immediately. Gentry(+1) gets a second level block and moves that guy out; Runyan and Onwenu both get the other LB. Ruiz has nobody to block. Higdon(+1) barely has to do anything but does show impressive long speed, beating the WMU safety to the corner and dusting him.
Drive Notes: Touchdown, 14-0, 4 min 1st Q.  
Ln Dn Ds O Form RB TE WR D Form Box Type Play Player Yards
O46 1 10 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 over 6.5 Run Split zone Higdon 19
RPS for M here as WMU splits out a linebacker and then blitzes him off the edge. He’s unable to shuffle because of his wide starting position. Backside DE and LB both slant to the IZ action. Gentry(+0.5) kicks the LB. JBB(+2) attaches and drives the backside DE two yards downfield, providing a great angle of attack for Higdon(+1). He takes it and runs through an arm tackle for YAC. RPS +1.
O27 1 10 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 over 6.5 Run Down G Evans 27
No bust here and a tighter lane for Evans to hit. It has a bonus S at eight-yards-and-charging, too. Evans(+2) gives him the business; S collapses in pile of viscera. Lane there because Runyan(+1) turned in a DT; Gentry(+1) sealed a LB inside; Ruiz(+1) got the other LB. Bredeson(+0.5) got just enough of a kick. This was real close to an RPS negative if that S splattered Evans in the hole.
Drive Notes: Touchdown, 21-0, 1 min 1st Q. Ensuing WMU punt blocked.  
Ln Dn Ds O Form RB TE WR D Form Box Type Play Player Yards
O24 1 10 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 even 7 Pass TE wheel McKeon Inc
Bredeson(-1) takes on a guy diving inside of him; dude spins through. Bredeson is still attached and Patterson could move away from this if he wanted but he sees that he’s got McKeon for a TD and tries to get the throw out; hit on the release. Ball sails. Runyan was having some difficulties but his guy seems to trip. McKeon is wide open. (PR, 0, protection ½, RPS +2)
O24 2 10 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 over 6.5 Run Split zone Higdon 9
I guess? This isn’t one of those isos where you insert a TE because Ruiz releases instead of doubling a DT, but JBB kicks a DE out instead of letting him go for the read. This is again a read nobody play. M just about blocks it, with JBB(+1) getting that kick and Ruiz(+0.5) getting around to a LB; looks like Higdon(+2) can attack that backside gap. He doesn’t trust it, understandably, since it look iffy. He then cuts to a frontside gap with an unblocked S in it. Onwenu’s block is just okay so he’s tripping over Onwenu’s legs when the safety hits him but he somehow stays up and goes and gets nine.
O15 3 1 Goal line 2 2 1 5-3 under 10 Run Down G Higdon 0
Bredeson(-1) trips coming out and falls right in the lane. McKeon(-1) rocked back by a DE. Runyan(-1) blocks down and is unable to hold his ground. By the time Higdon gets to the hole it’s been slammed shut.
O15 4 1 Goal line 2 2 1 5-3 under 10 Run Iso Higdon 1
M runs at a bubble in the WMU line. Martin and McKeon have a DE and move him a bit; Runyan and Bredeson double and bury a DT who’s firing out super low. This leaves Mason(+1) against the whole LB level. He wins the kamikaze battle against the first guy who shows and that’s just enough to get Higdon across the line. Too close for comfort.
O14 1 10 Shotgun 4-wide tight 1 2 2 4-3 even 9 Pass Drag DPJ 12
First read is Evans on a wheel but Collins can’t quite drive his defender into the path of a LB who hauls ass to get out on this. WMU sends six and one of them comes from LB depth so the line doesn’t pick him up. Patterson’s facing down that guy and is able to hit plan B, which is DPJ on mesh. His arm slot here is weird and he doesn’t step into it but job gets done. (CA+, 3, protection 0/1, TEAM -1)
O2 1 G Goal line 2 2 1 Goal line 11 Run Down G Evans 2
Evans bounces as McKeon(+1) and Gentry(+0.5) seal in their guys, with Gentry losing his a bit. Bredeson pulls around and is just able to get a shove in on a LB who’s attacking. Guy gets an ankle tackle in that Evans(+1) is able to power through into the endzone.
Drive Notes: Touchdown, 28-0, 9 min 2nd Q.

O44 1 5 Ace 3-wide tight 1 1 3 4-3 under 7 Pass PA Post Collins 44
Very, very bad zone coverage by the two guys with deep responsibilities here. Both are way too casual out of their backpedals and the deep S gets run by like he’s not there. Patterson makes no mistake. (CA, 3, protection 2/2, RPS +2). Collins route +, I guess. But this was too easy.

Ln Dn Ds O Form RB TE WR D Form Box Type Play Player Yards
M14 1 10 Shotgun 2TE twins 1 2 2 4-3 over 7.5 Run Pin and pull Higdon 1
McKeon(-0.5) gets ripped through and playside DE flows down the line. McKeon stays attached and manages to keep pushing. Higdon tries the outside but WMU players reacted quickly and have contained the edge. Higdon(-2) cuts back, way slow for my taste, and manages to get behind the McKeon block. Bredeson(+1) eliminated playside DT to help create the space. Ruiz(+0.5) cut off a LB to help. Onwenu is harassing a DT who has the ability to get over if Higdon does try to hit it fast.
M15 2 9 Shotgun twin TE 1 2 2 4-3 over 7 Run Power O Higdon 5
Thomas in, fake jet with action underneath it. WMU run blitzes and has a safety at 6 and one at 8, so heavy sledding. Onwenu(+1) finds his guy and moves him out; JBB(+1) steps around a DT and locks him out so there’s a lane up the gut. Bredeson(-2) pulls and neither hits the unblocked EMLOS who is widening out for Thomas or goes in that gap. Instead he hits the guy JBB has locked out. Higdon(+0.5) does find this gap and hits it. Unblocked S and unblocked DE converge to hold it down. Ruiz(+0.5) did a good job to ID and cut off a blitzer.
M20 1 10 Shotgun 3-wide H 1 1 3 Exotic 7 Pass Rollout comeback DPJ 14
Patterson rolls out directly into an edge blitz. He’s able to run around that dude and survey downfield. DPJ(route+) is running an out that a zone defender is going to be underneath so he converts it to a comeback and runs himself open. Patterson hits him in the number. (DO+, 3, protection N/A, RPS -1)
M34 1 10 Shotgun 2TE twins 1 2 2 4-3 over 7.5 Run Pin and pull Evans -1
Another pin and pull on which WMU cuts off the outside but leaves a lane inside that RB does not see. In this case it’s Evans(-2). McKeon(+1) turns in a relevant DE and Onwenu(+0.5) is able to climb to the backside LB, delaying him significantly. Two LBs flow hard outside and get outside Ruiz and Runyan, who both get adequate kicks. Evans misses the cut and by the time he takes it it’s filled.
M33 2 11 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 over 7 Pass TE out McKeon 6
This may get out too fast as McKeon and Collins are crossing right next to each other when the catch is made. Man coverage so not a huge deal but Collins’s guy is able to fall off and tackle when it looked like Collins was going to rub the S on McKeon and open up a nice chunk of YAC. Still a decent gain. (CA, 3, protection 1/1)
M39 3 5 Pistol 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 over 7 Pass Waggle throwaway N/A Inc
Rollout against his body. McKeon very covered; DPJ offscreen but probably covered as well. Feel like Patterson does have a shot at Perry on a crossing route but he’s getting pressure and may not be comfortable getting his shoulders around for a throw that could be dangerous.

O47 1 10 Ace twins 1 2 2 4-3 even 7.5 Run Inside zone Evans 5
LBs are blitzballing so there’s a lot of momentum to stall at the line. M does, neither letting a LB through or a DL, and now they just have to get a crack. They cannot quite do this. Onwenu(+1) is able to move a LB out and Evans hops through the gap behind him. JBB can’t quite drive or lock out the other DT but doesn’t exactly lose the block either. Evans(+0.5) plows into him and is able to blast him back because JBB is still leaning on him.
O42 2 5 Ace trips tight 1 2 2 4-3 over 7 Run Counter Evans 18
Very crack sweep formation, counter step and then run away from the crack sweep look. Runyan(+1) and Bredeson(+1) eliminate guys they’re blocking down on. Onwenu’s guy on the edge tries to dive inside of him; Onwenu(+1) handles that well and seals him away. Playside LB is coming right behind this guy to the outside; Gentry runs by him. S shows to fill for the gap the LB is vacating; Gentry does block him. Good Never Turn Upfield. Evans(+3) hops outside the LB; LB falls. He then cuts inside the Gentry block. DPJ (+1) blasts a LB by him. Evans then WOOPS another safety and stiffarms a DL for a chunk.
O24 1 10 Offset I 2 1 2 4-3 under 8 Run Counter Evans 0
Similar play from a different formation. Runyan(-2) gets surged through. Onwenu(+1) is pulling; he gets met by that guy and runs through him to still get his kickout. Runyan then really really appears to hold the guy (refs +2) but gets away with it; Mason(+1) runs up and blasts him. Evans is trying to cut inside the kickout when blitzer from the backside gets him. Gentry(-2) appears to bust here as he hits a LB further inside who JBB is setting up to wall off. JBB chases the outside guy and gets to look bad because of someone else’s block. Didn’t matter much as free LB because of Runyan stuff was also there.
O24 2 10 Shotgun 2TE twins 1 2 2 4-3 over 7.5 Pass Rollout out Perry Inc
Man they just do not want to pass block from the pocket at all. WMU is expecting this stuff now. Perry’s going to get whomped for three or four yards if this is complete; it’s high. (IN, 1, protection 1/1)
O24 3 10 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 Okie two 7 Pass Dumpoff Wilson 2

WMU has six guys at the LOS and starts backing a couple out presnap as the overhang LB threatens; this looks like nobody accounted for him. JBB is picking which guy to let through and picks the outside one. That guy is about to sack when Patterson gets off an under hand chuck to Wilson, who released after finding no one to block and may be you pass pro culprit. (CA+, 3, protection 0/2, TEAM -2)

WMU OLB right in the throwing lane as Gentry(-1) seems to block him there. Patterson still throws this but the ball has to avoid that guy and that takes DPJ away from his blocks and fouls the play up. (CA, 3, screen, RPS -1)
M49 2 10 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 under 7 Run Split zone Evans 27
Big gap up the gut as Onwenu(+1) and JBB(+1) blow out a DT. M catches an exchange so Gentry(+1) blocks a guy charging down and LB containing Patterson eliminates himself. Ruiz(+0.5) and Bredeson(+0.5) move the other guy and Evans(+2) is through before the LB level can get back to him. Evans then sets up a Collins(+1) block and bursts outside to turn a chunk into two chunks. RPS +1, split zone vs exchange.
O24 1 10 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 over 7.5 Pass Fade DPJ Inc (Pen +15)
Quick fade with no other read, really. DPJ and DB seem to have some mutual arm-fighting and DPJ is reduced to diving at this ball with one hand. He can’t make the spectacular catch. He does draw a PI call as DB clearly grabs his jersey and impedes his dive at the ball. (CA, 0, protection N/A)
O9 1 G Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 under 7.5 Run Split zone Evans 3
Another exchange. DE is prepared for split zone this time and dives under Gentry, no fault of his, to force a cutback into the LB coming behind. Evans(+0.5) makes the cut he has to and manages to grind out a few. JBB(+1) gave him the lane with a driving block. RPS -1, back to the well.
O6 2 G Ace trips tight TE 1 3 1 Goal line 10 Run Inside zone Evans 2
Playside DE takes a double from Runyan and Bredeson(-1), splitting it once Runyan has to peel off for a charging LB. Bredeson is not in position to finish or seal the guy and he surges upfield. Eubanks(-1) lets his guy under him and he chases to Evans to help tackle.
O4 3 G Shotgun trips TE 1 1 3 4-3 over 9 Pass Corner DPJ 4
Not a super route that gets DPJ open, tight window, nailed. (DO, 3, protection 1/1). Collins slant was probably easier and also six but man wants a DO.

This is encouraging. WMU shoves a LB to the LOS and inserts him; M adapts well. Onwenu(+0.5) walls off a DL slanting away. JBB(+1) takes the LB and kicks him out after he jets outside. Bredeson(+0.5) gets inside of this instead of heading outside where his initial flight path took him. He’s able to whack a LB and create some space for Evans. Unfortunately for the TEs they blew their guy right back into the RB’s path because they’re expecting the ball to go outside of them. Various folks converge. Evans(+0.5) did a good job to follow Bredeson.
M37 2 5 Goal line H 2 2 1 5-3 under 9 Pass PA drag Martin Inc
PA from a big formation, Patterson looks at McKeon and doesn’t like it. Comes off it, finds Martin on a drag but throws it well behind him, Martin can’t quite make the spinning catch. (IN, 1, protection 2/2)
M37 3 5 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 under 7 Run Zone read keeper Patterson 16
Split zone action induces crash from backside end as WMU’s been burned on this a couple times before. Patterson(+1) reads, keeps, and gets the edge easy. RPS +2.
O47 1 10 I-Form 2 1 2 4-3 over 8 Run Off tackle Wilson 2
WMU brings a safety down and also blitzes a linebacker, which jams up the front and picks off Mason. Wilson heads off tackle and eats an unblocked LB. RPS -1. Still got 2.

Good decisive cutback from Wilson(+1), who finds a backside gap. Gentry(+0.5) got a kick; Hudson(+2) buries a DT. Honigford had to pop off a double almost immediately to try and hit a LB, which he barely does; Hudson does this on his own. To a MAC backup, probably. But still! Wilson(+0.5) is then able to run through a safety tackle for a nice gain.
O34 2 1 I-Form 2 1 2 4-3 over 7 Pass Sack N/A -2
PA and they’re hoping to hit FB in the flat. That FB is Eubanks and covered. Covered ish. McCaffrey should throw this. Or he should throw it to Gentry, wide open further inside. Wilson cuts the hell out of a DE but once McCaffrey doesn’t throw it this play isn’t designed for a lot of pass pro. Scramble, sack. (TAX, N/A, protection 2/2)
O36 3 3 Shotgun 3-wide 1 1 3 4-3 under 7 Run Inside zone Wilson 8
Unblocked DE fires straight upfield like it’s 2008. Easy give read. Honigford(+1) again gets off a double to block a blitzing LB, this time he whacks and moves him out. Hudson(+1) moves the DT, who spins out but removes himself from the play as Wilson jets directly upfield.

any less ennui'd?

The man... who threw good? Gives me the tiniest ember of hope within my black, cynical heart?

Sure, let's start there. Michigan didn't turn to Patterson frequently. When they did he did very well:

SHEA PATTERSON

  Good   Neutral   Bad   Ovr
Game DO CA SCR   PR MA   BA TA IN BR   DSR PFF
Notre Dame 2+ 18(4)+ 1   5 1   1(1) 2 2 1*   77% -
WMU 3++ 9(2)++     2 1     1 2     77% -

3 DOs and four pressure-affected throws in the good column is a hell of a lot in 13 throws, with nothing serious in the negative column. Those pressured throws were almost all waggles that WMU was rushing out on because it was predictable that Michigan would try to avoid, you know, blocking. And this is an eye-opener:

Doing more or less that again later in in the game doubly so. This awkward arm-slot no-step dump to DPJ is also an eye opener in a slightly different manner:

And sure, do this, I like it.

He's got the slant there but man wants a DO on his chart, I guess.

Patterson had a couple of misses but they were narrow. His deep post to Grant Perry was about six inches too high for him and would have been just fine for Zach Gentry; an out to Oliver Martin was well behind him. Everything else was on point, and he got to display his ability to not dorf it when the easy opportunity presents itself:

You never know for sure but given what I saw last year that seems like Patterson intentionally leaving it a bit short because he'd rather do that than try the perfect in-stride pass and increase his chances of blowing it.

Also I guess the running many yards was slightly encouraging.

Yes, I thought that was all right.

Run blocking dipped a bit relative to ND's surprisingly good number but remained above the Mendoza line of 66% that we want to hit for a real good day on the ground. Michigan's much better ground game has a lot to do with the level of competition—a giant DL bust paved the way for a 67-yard touchdown on which Cesar Ruiz released and had no one to block—and a lot to do with the running backs, who made the most of the opportunities provided them.

Pass protection gets a big ol' incomplete. It was clear Michigan did not want to do much, if any of it. Pass pro opportunities were incredibly rare. When they risked it at all it was often on a relatively quick throw. The only extended incidents were the overthrow to McKeon where Bredeson got spun through and the near-conversion on third and twenty four where Michigan stoned WMU:

Hooray for that but running a zillion rollouts against WMU probably says more than the above about Michigan's trust in their pass protection.

OKAY WHAT ABOUT THE BACKUPS THOUGH

really

YES

Because I knew you would demand backup taeks, you maniac, I reviewed Michigan's last couple drives. Wilson and McCaffrey's scores are in the chart above. Only three of the backup OL drew numbers on the five plays I charted. Honigford was +3, Hudson +5, Mayfield +2. That's a lot in a short amount of time.

The McCaffrey-led TD drive did most of its work behind the right side of the line, where James Hudson and Joel Honigford did good work. Wilson's first chunk run was mostly those two guys getting blasting single blocks:

#59 RG and #55 RT

The next play featured a Hudson pancake that Wilson decisively cut behind:

#55 RT

A little bit later the gap is again between those guys, with Honigford reading the play in front of him and popping off on a charging LB effectively:

#59 RG and #55 RT

Pile on all the degree of difficulty caveats you want, they're all true. But all they can do is maul the dudes in front of them and Hudson and Honigford were 3/3 on opportunities to do so, with a little bit of "I know what I'm doing" thrown in there. Hudson's gotten a lot of talk and could push through into a starting job this year so you might expect that. Honigford hasn't generated word one from practice chatterers, though, so that's more meaningful for him. If he'd done that in a spring game against the second string people would have been saying his name all offseason.

Finally, the only play of relative note on the final drive was Jalen Mayfield depositing a WMU LB ten yards downfield:

LT #75

This might be a backup and it's definitely a guy who's out of give-a-damn but remember the straws and the clutching thereof: we do it because it feels good. There's your Jalen Mayfield straw.

Can I talk about the actual starters now?

No. While we're here, Tru Wilson takes?

I liked him. He's not Karan Higdon-sized in any way—lies, damn lies, and rosters—but in the clips above he's quick and decisive with his cuts and has a little wiggle. He set up his block in the Mayfield clip above very well, threatening outside and then cutting off his teammate's butt.

His one pass protection incident was the kind of cut block that flips a dude on his head:

#13 RB

If I had to guess I'd say that more than anything is the reason he's the #3 back.

His role isn't likely to be large if Michigan's not taking full advantage of Chris Evans, especially since he seems like Evans minus the top gear and nasty open-field moves. Early progress towards becoming a Kovacs Memorial Non-Walk-On, though.

Speaking of, Jake McCurry:

Nice route, nice dodge. Very much a slot only, but he's got a shot.

NOW can I talk about the starters?

...McCurry?

I just did him.

Fine.

So. Yeah. Any questions.

...McCurry?

ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STARTERS

The thing they were doing, thing?

I called it dart in the game column but that was me getting it mixed up. Michigan ran "down G" on many of their successful plays. Down G is a power variant that pulls the playside guard—power pulls the backside guard—and tries to attack off tackle. The backside of the line runs inside zone; the playside tackle and whatever TEs you're using block down. The idea is to bash the edge of the DL inside while that pulling G pops whoever the force player is wide enough to jet through that gap. Seth has more detail.

It worked pretty well. Higdon's 67-yard TD and Evans's 27-yard TD were both Down G, and while the Evans one required some fancy footwork by the running back, you can see what Down G was buying Michigan in the WMU linebacker level:

WMU MLB over Onwenu

If Onwenu pulls that guy knows it's power and runs his ass off to get there. Since he doesn't and the C, RG, and RT look like they're running IZ he plays it like IZ, which threatens various gaps and backside cuts. He does not haul ass for the POA. By the time the RB jets for the gap off tackle, Ruiz is out there cutting the LB off.

This is good: it's a coherent running game. Down G fits with inside zone and power and won some blocks for Michigan by confusing the opposition. It is nice that sometimes they are confused and Michigan is not.

I'm confused: we're not confused?

Well... this is still a work in progress. One of the early Higdon runs that culminated in the 13-minutes-left-in-the-first-quarter booing was plain old power on which McKeon gave up a little penetration. I still think the puller should be able to get around it. Bredeson doesn't quite manage it:

LG #74 pulling

Instead he hits McKeon's guy, which doesn't help Higdon since he's cutting back like the blocking tells him to. When this happened to Onwenu later he handled it in a very Onwenu way: just running through whatever gnat appears in his windshield. One of the 500-level things about running the ball on a power play is being able to re-gap when the defense runs slants that do stuff like the above: not quite.

But it is a work in progress, emphasis on progress. Michigan's faced a wide array of stunts and blitzes and while they've been less than perfect I don't think I've seen anyone get a free run on an obviously doomed play, iffy zone read stuff aside. From time to time I'll see someone doing something that seems pretty advanced, awareness-wise. Here Bredeson is able to redirect inside when WMU's defensive approach creates a big canyon in there:

#74 LG pulling

That's a re-gap. Hooray.

There are other hints that things are coming together. Bushell-Beatty's block here isn't all that relevant to the four yards Michigan gets but he's able to fend off a DE outside of him for a bit while keeping an eye on a linebacker the whole time and getting him, too, when he charges:

RT #76

That's a guy who seems to know that once the DE is delayed even a bit he's not relevant and he should be alert for someone trying to shoot a gap. I like that. It seems good. And, you know, aware.

The very next play was almost there but after Runyan passes up a guy slanting outside of him he starts checking around for dudes. This is okay, but when he finds none he doesn't look for work and McKeon ends up escorting the guy who slanted to Higdon:

LT #75

e

Still four yards because Ruiz and Bredeson ejected the NT. Going forward the mental stuff is more important than blasting various MAC DL off the ball because that's all about you and not the opposition. And it's better, way better. It isn't a machine.

Also the pushing.

Yes, there was a fair amount of pushing people off the ball. JBB was able to cave guys in with some regularity; this split zone is going to have a gap either way because of WMU's approach but JBB's able to plow his guy so Higdon's able to get vertical quickly and eat up yards:

RT #76

Blowouts were common, especially on that right side:

RG #50 and RT #76

There too you see a bit of awareness from JBB, who's got his head up and is checking the LB, then pops out on him when he scrapes outside.

The right side of the line was reminiscent of last year during the mauling phase. I don't know exactly what PFF's seeing but I'm very surprised that they rated the tight ends higher than Michigan's right side after this game. The TEs had some moments good and bad; I thought Onwenu and Bushell-Beatty were excellent on the ground. The passing game probably doesn't make up for that gap since there was hardly any pass blocking (and I had no protection minuses for either guy) while McKeon and Gentry had just three simple catches between them. YMMV.

On the other hand they were gonzo about Chris Evans.

That I get. Evans gave a couple of guys The Business, most spectacularly on his 27-yard touchdown, where he's able to dust an unblocked safety who started at eight yards:

He had two more guys flail uselessly at him a bit later:

If Michigan can get Evans to the second level or into space he will do this stuff more often than not. Dink and dunk with this dude.

Higdon's 67 yarder was maybe his easiest run of the day but the ability to outrun that safety angle should further put to rest questions about his long speed. The 43-yard chunk was another matter, as he ran through an arm tackle and dusted a safety before the necessity to zig-zag allowed various Broncos to catch up. He also displayed his ability to bounce off tackles:

MAKE PLAYS, this space says all the time. Plays were made.

I had only one complaint in this department and it was the same one for both RBs. I thought both guys had opportunities to cut up when WMU successfully held the edge on a couple of pin and pulls. On both WMU gets guys outside of the two pullers quickly but leaves a lane just inside them that is at least a decent gain on. Higdon even seemed to sense his, slowing up and lookin' at the dang thing:

image_thumb[5]

Alas, he then continued outside for a couple steps and spurned the opportunity. Evans's lane was less obvious but there:

I'm sure that'll be an area they get coached up in this week; I bet we see some more pin and pulls against SMU as they try to test their improvement in this department.

Other than that they were very good.

AND LET'S NOT FORGET YOU KNOW WHO

the guy who can't modulate his voice?

THAT IS CORRECT

Ben Mason. Woo! Let's get out that +3:

That is a blowout block that catches another player in its wake. Mason's other major contribution was collapsing the first man through on a fourth and one Michigan barely converted:

Not bad for twelve snaps. I'm not saying I want to see more Mason because Michigan has a lot of options when it comes to blocky catchy sorts but I have confidence that Mason snaps will be a good time.

Did you have any further tactical complaints?

I mean, no. The down G stuff is a good addition but it's nothing mindblowing, and with Michigan jumping out to a big lead just running plays it would have been dumb to put anything else new on tape. There were a couple of wrinkles, albeit ones more in the "we need to be able to do this to have a functional offense that isn't predictable" mode.

One was a bonafide zone read that played on a couple of earlier split zones. Michigan got a chunk play on split zone when they caught a scrape exchange, which led to a second play where that guy buried himself in the line. So on a third split zone when that happened again a Patterson pull was easy yardage.

This was an improvement from the past week and earlier in the game. Michigan lets the backside end go here; he crashes hard but Patterson doesn't pull. The end result is a meh gain on a play that otherwise had a shot at getting to the secondary:

I understand that Michigan doesn't want to expose Patterson to hits but if that's not a real read that's asking for the above to happen. If Michigan wants DEs to shuffle they're going to have to give Patterson the green light or Patterson's going to have to read it better. Against real opponents he should be getting a few carries a game to keep folks honest.

Receivers?

No drops from my POV. Incompletions that Martin and Perry got hands to were 1) very far behind a guy on a drag and 2) high and hard and un-spearable with one hand and got filed as potential circus catches. I gave Martin's sideline catch a 1.

[0 = uncatchable, 1 = circus catch, 2 = moderate difficulty, 3 = routine]

O evento contará com a participação de quase 300 mil militares do Distrito Militar Oriente e Central, forças da Frota do Norte, unidades das Tropas Aerotransportadas, aviação da Força Aeroespacial, incluindo a aviação estratégica. Além disso, nas manobras estão participando militares da China e da Mongólia. Os treinamentos envolverão mais de mil aviões, helicópteros e drones, até 36 mil veículos blindados, até 80 navios e embarcações de abastecimento.

As principais manobras decorrerão nos polígonos do Distrito Militar Oriental, da Força Aérea e de defesa antiaérea, bem como nas águas dos mares de Bering, de Okhotsk, e no golfo Avatchinski, no Pacífico.

As manobras Vostok 2018 foram divididas em duas etapas. No decorrer da primeira os participantes treinarão o planejamento, preparação das tropas e a organização da cooperação. Na segunda etapa, as tropas realizarão manobras práticas em conformidade com as decisões tomadas. Durante a segunda etapa, é efetuado o treinamento de ataques maciços de aviação, luta contra mísseis de cruzeiro, bem como operações ofensivas e defensivas. No mar, serão praticadas respostas a um ataque aéreo, ataques contra grupos de navios e tropas anfíbias. A aviação realizará manobras de apoio à ofensiva terrestre e à defesa costeira.

O general Antonio Hamilton Martins Mourão (à esquerda) na cerimônia de sua passagem para a reserva do Exército, em fevereiro deste ano. O comandante do Exército, Eduardo Villas Bôas (à direita), participou do evento.
As menos de 44 horas transcorridas entre as imagens de Jair Bolsonaro esfaqueado num calçadão e, na UTI hospitalar, encenando atirar com arma de fogo contam um drama e uma parábola. O drama é o torpe atentado contra o capitão de Artilharia, que cinco dias antes empunhara um tripé, fingira disparar e bravateara, para gozo da multidão que o ovacionava: “Vamos fuzilar a petralhada aqui do Acre!” A parábola é a do sapo e do escorpião.

A narrativa tem variações nos acabamentos, mas a alvenaria é a mesma. Um escorpião pede para atravessar um lago nas costas de um sapo. O sapo se recusa a dar corona por recear uma picada assassina. O escorpião alega não saber nadar; não envenenaria o anfíbio, porque afundaria junto com ele. O sapo coaxa: “Então, tá”. No meio da travessia, o escorpião o atraiçoa. Agonizando, o sapo pergunta sobre o motivo do gesto suicida. O escorpião esclarece, antes de se afogar: “Porque é da minha natureza”.

Candidato a senador no Rio, o deputado estadual Flávio Bolsonaro tuitou na sexta-feira, 7 de setembro, um dia depois de seu pai ser ferido em Juiz de Fora: “Jair Bolsonaro está mais forte do que nunca e pronto para ser eleito presidente do Brasil no primeiro turno!”.

Na noite do feriado, o general Hamilton Mourão, vice de Bolsonaro, disse em entrevista à Globonews que conversara por telefone com o cabeça da chapa. O candidato a presidente lhe recomendou “moderar o tom”, para “não exacerbar essa questão que está ocorrendo”.

Sincera ou pragmática, a atitude talvez rendesse votos: a vítima apelaria por serenidade e tolerância, repeliria a violência. No sábado, a ilusão ruiu, com Flávio voltando ao Twitter para publicar uma fotografia do pai sentado numa poltrona do hospital Albert Einstein. O paciente simulou tirotear.

A cena colidiu com o recado transmitido por Mourão. Por que Bolsonaro reincidiu na modulação beligerante? Porque é da sua natureza. Noutras palavras, da verve de Ciro Gomes, “ele foi ferido na barriga, mas não mudou nada na cabeça”.

Fator Lula

A facada desferida contra Bolsonaro mereceu solidariedade e compaixão, mas não comoção em larga escala. O Datafolha ouviu 2.804 eleitores anteontem e constatou que, desde 21 de agosto, o representante da extrema direita oscilou de 22% para 24% da preferência, sem romper a margem de erro de dois pontos. Sua rejeição passou de 39% para 43%, muito além do índice de Marina Silva, que vem atrás com 29%.

Há empate quádruplo no segundo lugar da intenção de votos: Ciro Gomes, 13% (cresceu 3 pontos); Marina, 11% (despencou 5); Geraldo Alckmin, 10% (oscilou 1 para cima); e Fernando Haddad, 9%, (mais 5).

A morte do candidato Eduardo Campos foi sucedida em 2014 pela ascensão de sua antiga vice, Marina. Ferido, Bolsonaro patinou no Datafolha. Ele mantém eleitorado fidelíssimo, mas não o expande. Em nova evidência de que é candidato de classe, a Bolsa subiu 1,76% e o dólar caiu 0,94% no dia 6. Os investidores esperavam que o capitão, em quem confiam, disparasse nas pesquisas.

Os assassinatos do governador João Pessoa, em 1930, e do major-aviador Rubens Vaz, em 1954, mudaram ou aceleraram o rumo da história. Em 2018, a agressão a Bolsonaro não teve esse poder. Contra os perseguidores mais colados, três confrontos de segundo turno indicam seu revés. O melhor desempenho é um empate com Haddad (39% a 38% para o petista).

Dos cinco líderes, quem mais avançou foi o ex-prefeito, 125%. E isso que somente ontem, 11 de setembro, ele foi inscrito como candidato oficial à Presidência. Barrado pela Justiça, Lula escreveu uma carta-manifesto. Um trecho: “Nós continuamos vivos no coração e na memória do povo. E o nosso nome agora é Haddad”. É provável que o candidato do PT diminua em breve a distância para Bolsonaro. Terá ao lado a vice Manuela D’Ávila. A vigorosa campanha de Ciro possivelmente sofrerá com a descoberta, por muitos eleitores, de que ele não é o predileto do ex-presidente.

Não prevaleceram as previsões de que os adversários de Bolsonaro promoveriam viradas em suas campanhas, escapando de polêmicas com quem convalesce. O sórdido atentado contra o deputado não mitiga a sordidez dos seus ideais. Supor o contrário, e por isso tratar com indulgência o discurso obscurantista, seria contribuir para a derrota da democracia em outubro.

Jogral sombrio

À facada em Bolsonaro sobreveio o jogo duro de dois dos mais influentes oficiais do Exército. O general Mourão, na reserva remunerada. E o comandante da Força, general Eduardo Villas Bôas, no serviço ativo. Na Globonews, com a naturalidade de quem avisa não querer cebola na pizza de calabresa, o candidato a vice tratou como razoável o que ele reconheceu como “autogolpe” de um governante. “O presidente da República pode decidir empregar as Forças Armadas”; “é um autogolpe, você pode dizer isso”. “É uma hipótese”, adoçou, e não receita salgada para consumo imediato.

Mourão não tem mais nem um pelotão para dar ordens, ao contrário de seu conterrâneo gaúcho Villas Bôas. Em entrevista a O Estado de S. Paulo, o chefe do Exército associou a tentativa de homicídio contra Bolsonaro à legitimidade do próximo governante:

“O atentado confirma que estamos construindo dificuldade para que o novo governo tenha uma estabilidade, para a sua governabilidade, e podendo até mesmo ter sua legitimidade questionada. Por exemplo, com relação a Bolsonaro, ele não sendo eleito, ele pode dizer que prejudicaram a campanha dele. E, ele sendo eleito, provavelmente será dito que ele foi beneficiado pelo atentado, porque gerou comoção”.

Indagado pela repórter Tânia Monteiro sobre o registro da candidatura Lula, negado pelo Tribunal Superior Eleitoral, Villas Bôas tornou a abordar a legitimidade do eleito: “Preocupa que este acirramento das divisões acabe minando tanto a governabilidade quanto a legitimidade do próximo governo. Nos preocupa também que as decisões relativas a este tema sejam definidas e decididas rapidamente, de uma maneira definitiva, para que todo o processo transcorra com naturalidade”.

O comandante reiterou sua obsessão, ao opinar sobre a determinação do Conselho de Direitos Humanos da ONU para o ex-presidente ser opção nas urnas: “É uma tentativa de invasão da soberania nacional. Depende de nós permitir que ela se confirme ou não. Isso é algo que nos preocupa, porque pode comprometer nossa estabilidade, as condições de governabilidade e de legitimidade do próximo governo”.
Não cabe ao comandante da mais poderosa das três Forças tutelar as regras eleitorais.
Ele assegurou que “não há hipótese de o Exército provocar uma quebra de ordem institucional”. Na contramão, como se fosse um magistrado, incursionou em campo minado, estranho às suas atribuições legais: “O pior cenário é termos alguém sub judice, afrontando tanto a Constituição quanto a Lei da Ficha Limpa, tirando a legitimidade, dificultando a estabilidade e a governabilidade do futuro governo e dividindo ainda mais a sociedade brasileira. A Lei da Ficha Limpa se aplica a todos”.

A soberania nacional é fundamento constitucional da República. Sua “invasão” imaginada ofereceria pretexto para viradas de mesa golpistas, com ou sem estripulias armadas. Não cabe ao comandante da mais poderosa das três Forças tutelar as regras eleitorais.
A 25 dias do primeiro turno, bolsonarismo e golpismo consolidam seu amálgama.
Ao se pronunciar sobre a postulação de Lula e “o pior cenário”, Villas Bôas parece acenar com uma chantagem: se elegerem o petista, um correligionário dele ou outro candidato de desagrado da caserna, a escolha pode ser interditada como ilegítima. Ao contrário do que o general acredita, a divisão social se aprofunda com a violação da soberania do voto popular, e não com a submissão a ela.

Com seus devaneios sobre “intervenção militar” e “autogolpe”,  o general Mourão têm composto com seu camarada Villas Bôas um jogral intimidador. Viúvas da ditadura se excitam e sonham com o futuro repetindo o passado.

A 25 dias do primeiro turno, bolsonarismo e golpismo consolidam seu amálgama. Todo figurão bolsonarista é golpista, embora nem todo golpista seja bolsonarista.

Declaração de guerra

É estultice pensar que a pregação da violência política justifica atos violentos contra o pregador. Não os autoriza, porém não apaga a história. Convencido das vantagens eleitorais de sua trêfega alusão a armas, Bolsonaro havia ensinado em julho uma menina a imitar um revólver ou uma pistola com o polegar e o indicador da mão direita. Em agosto, ele perguntou a um menino, uniformizado com réplica de farda da Polícia Militar, que segurava no colo: “Sabe dar tiro? Atira. Policial tem que atirar”.

Pouco depois das três e meia da tarde da quinta-feira, Bolsonaro teve a barriga penetrada por uma faca quando um apoiador o carregava nos ombros. Deu sorte, ali na esquina das ruas Halfeld e Batista de Oliveira: o agressor não portava arma de fogo, cuja posse generalizada o candidato preconiza. Logo se soube que o criminoso era um homem perturbado, de 40 anos, identificado como Adélio Bispo de Oliveira. Havia sido filiado ao PSOL de 2007 a 2014, mas dissolvera os vínculos com o partido de Guilherme Boulos.

“Quem mandou foi Deus”, disse o esfaqueador, cujas broncas mais cabeludas são com a maçonaria e Bolsonaro. Para ilustres partidários do deputado, o inimigo era outro. “Agora é guerra”, declarou Gustavo Bebbiano. O presidente do PSL não informou contra quem. “Se querem usar a violência, os profissionais da violência somos nós”, atemorizou o general Mourão. Ele sentenciou, em versão falsa, que o postulante à Presidência fora “covardemente atacado por um militante do Partido dos Trabalhadores”.
Bolsonaro é o único personagem da vida nacional que sugeriu publicamente o extermínio de 30 mil brasileiros.
O pastor Silas Malafaia espalhou, noutra inverdade, que o aparente lobo solitário “é militante do PT e assessora a campanha de Dilma [Rousseff] ao Senado em Minas”. O senador Magno Malta compartilhou foto fraudada digitalmente para inserir Adélio perto de Lula em uma manifestação. À falta de argumento original, o general da reserva Augusto Heleno descreveu o celerado que feriu Bolsonaro como “um radical irresponsável, fiel a seus ideais marxistas”.

Tanto bolsonaristas quanto seus contendores difundiram teorias conspiratórias e cascatas caricaturais sobre o crime. Os concorrentes do capitão, contudo, repudiaram a violência e se solidarizaram com ele. Em março, o deputado afirmara que petistas haviam disparado os tiros contra a caravana de Lula. Bolsonaro é o único personagem da vida nacional que sugeriu publicamente o extermínio de 30 mil brasileiros

Morte à espreita

Aos 63 anos, Jair Messias Bolsonaro tangenciou a morte. Como o país assistiu em imagens em movimento, ao ser esfaqueado o candidato em campanha vestia uma camiseta amarela com a inscrição garrafal em verde “MEU PARTIDO É O BRASIL”. Sangrou pouco por fora, mas a lâmina lesionou uma veia que irriga o abdômen e, em quatro cortes, o intestino. A hemorragia interna consumiu 2,5 litros de sangue, cerca de 40% do volume que circula no corpo. Derrubou sua pressão para 8 por 4.

Bolsonaro chegou à Santa Casa de Misericórdia “em choque” e em “situação gravíssima”, de acordo com os médicos que o socorreram em Juiz de Fora. A cirurgia que o salvou durou duas horas. Pelo trabalho, o Sistema Único de Saúde pagará R$ 367,06 ao cirurgião vascular Paulo Gonçalves de Oliveira Junior. O doutor dividirá a remuneração com os colegas que atenderam Bolsonaro, relatou a repórter Consuelo Dieguez.

Na sexta-feira, deitado em seu leito, o candidato gravou um depoimento. Agradeceu a Deus, médicos e enfermeiros. Abatido, relembrou a investida: “Parecia apenas uma pancada na boca do estômago […]. A dor era insuportável, e parecia que tinha algo mais grave acontecendo”. Lamentou se ausentar do desfile militar do 7 de Setembro. E falou: “Nunca fiz mal a ninguém”.

Na manhã de sábado o transferiram para São Paulo, onde Bolsonaro posou simulando atirar. A legenda para a foto bem poderia ser “Porque é da minha natureza”.

          Лени Кравиц с концерт в "Арена Армеец"      Cache   Translate Page      

Единайсет години след първия си концерт в България Лени Кравиц пристига отново. Суперзвездата ще излезе на сцената на „Арена Армеец“ на 4 май 2019 г., съобщават организаторите „София мюзик ентърпрайсис“ и Live Nation.

У нас Кравиц ще представи единадесетия си студиен албум Raise Vibration, композиран в характерния стил на музиканта.

„Искам да предам своето послание за единност. Още от Let Love Rule до Raise Vibration искам музиката да мотивира и вдъхновява!“, споделя той.

Албумът е създаден от Кравиц съвместно с дългогодишния му приятел и сътрудник, китариста Крейг Рос. Лени Кравиц е продуцент на Raise Vibration, той изпълнява сам и цялата музика в албума – от китара, бас, барабани и пиано до бонго, камбанки, клавишни инструменти и синтезатори, ситар, калимба и други.

Българската публика видя за първи път на живо Лени Кравиц през 2008 г. в един вълнуващ концерт на столичния стадион „Академик“. Тогава той обеща, че ще се върне съвсем скоро – и оттогава минаха 10 години. И въпреки че публиката ще очаква с интерес новите парчета на Лени, той надали ще я разочарова, пропускайки най-доброто от своите 30 изключителни години в музиката.

Билетите за концерта на 4 май 2019-а са на цени от 60 до 140 лв. и са вече в продажба.

          Мицковски за 24 анализа: Не повикувам на бојкот за референдумот      Cache   Translate Page      

Лидерот на ВМРО-ДПМНЕ, Христијан Мицкоски за 24 анализа вели дека не повикува на бојкот меѓу редови со својата порака од прес -конференцијата синоќа.

Мицкоски вели како тој ќе аaлса, граѓаните ќе дознаат на 30 септември, а тврди се повлекол од изјавата дека ќе гласа против договорот поради манипулативното референдумско прашање.

Лидерот на ВМРО-ДПМНЕ тврди  не се пазари за амнeстија за екс премиерот Никола Груевски и ако добие таква понуда, а за возврат да треба да даде поддршка на референдумот, нема да ја прифати.

 

 


          Актерката Милица Стојанова е добитник на наградата „Голема ѕвезда“      Cache   Translate Page      

Легендарната Милица Стојанова, актерка и доајен на македонската театарска и филмска сцена е лауреат на наградата „Голема ѕвезда“ која и ја додели Друштвото на филмски професионалци на Македонија, а ќе и биде врачена на 39. издание на интернационалниот фестивал на филмска камера „Браќа Манаки“. Критиката за неа вели дека Милица е уметник со неспорен и неброени пати потврден талент, кој длабоко сраснал со средината во која создава. Досегашни добитници на големата ѕвезда се Кирил Ценевски, Милчо Манчевски, Дарко Марковиќ и Сајмон Пери.

„Тоа што оваа македонска дива ќе биде со нас во Битола на 86 годишна возраст, по 60 години присуство на филмското платно е голема работа“ - изјави Игор Иванов-Изи, претседател на Друштво на филмски работници на РМ.

„Алисио Икори спомна дека Клаудија Кардинале е една од оние актерки која преку своите улоги го доловува начинот на живеење во Италија во 60,70,80-те години. Мислам дека Стојановска е на тоа рамниште во една поширока смисла на зборот во и надвор од Македонија“ - рече Гена Теодосиевска, директор на ИФФК „Браќа Манаки“.

Годнинава на фестивалот „Браќа Манаки“ во 14 фестивалски програми ќе бидат прикажани околу 95 филмови, во програмата се вклучени најновите филмски продукции на големите мајстори. Во главната програма за трите награди камера 300 за најдобар кинематограф ќе се натпреваруваат 12 филмови кои учествувале на трите најголеми фестивали Кан, Берлин, Венеција и еден од Карлови Вари.

„Ако претендираме да сме светски фестивал и да сме врвни како прв и најстар фестивал мора да водиме сметка секогаш тоа да биде повеќе од златната средина и секогаш да сме на извориштата на трите императивни фестивали “ - рече Благоја Куновски-Доре, уметнички директор и селектор на „Браќа Манаки“.
 
Првата фестивалска вечер ќе биде посветена на оскаровецот Роџерс Дикинс, годишен добитник на Специјалната награда „Златна камера 300“ за животно дело. На втората фестивалска вечер ќе и биде доделена наградата „Специјална златна камера 300“ на вториот лауреат, филмската дива со светска кариера, Клаудија Кардинале.

Новина на фестивалот е програмата Филмски класици од светската филмска антологија.


          Тандем реформата за физичко воспитување во основното образование стартува на 15 септември      Cache   Translate Page      

Компјутерот и телефонот ги променија навиките на децата за игри во природа и надворешен амбиент. Некогаш улиците биле место каде се одвивале детските игри, денес технологијата ги направи физички помалку активни, а сето тоа се одразува на нивната психофизичка, здравствена и ментална состојба, вели Ленче Алексовска–Величковска, деканка на Факултетот за физичко образование, спорт и здравје, потенцирајќи дека треба сериозно да се сфати идејата за предметот физичко воспитување за кој вели дека е еден од сериозните фактори против пороците кои што се појавуваат.

„Доколку овој закон се донесе и се усвои, а тоа е и барање на сите родители, ќе превенира во намалување на деформитетите, намалување на прекумерната телесна тежина кај дечињата, а од друга страна ќе развива една здрава спортска навика“ - вели Ленче Алексовска–Величковска.

За промена на ваквите навики заменик-министерот за образование и наука, Петар Атанасов  вели потребно е од најрана возраст, особено преку основното образование да се води целосна грижа за учениците.

„Фиичката култура е важна за здравјето на децата, но треба да се внимава и на емоционалната остојба. Треба да се грижиме за здравјето на децата“ - рече Петар Атанасов.

Елизабета Томевска–Илиевска од Институтот за педагогија при Филозофскиот факултет која е и дел од тимот на експертската група за реформите во основното образование, вели дека процесот на реформите е во тек, но дека ќе биде потребен период за нивна целосна имплементација од наредната година.

„Со иднината на децата не треба да се брза. Многу внимателно ние како педагози и членови на експертската група сме во процес на подготовка за истите да започнат од наредната учебна година, а процесот е во тек.  Со овој дел од реформата, кој го спорведува Факултетот за физичко образование, здравје  и спорт е започната од септември иако е во рамки на ЕРАЗМУС“ - изјави Елизабета Томевска–Илиевска.

Заменик министерот за образование, Атанасов вели дека „Тандем реформата“ која беше најавена од претходната министерка Дескоска, како и останатите реформи, се во фаза на реализација, но за целосна имплементација ќе треба да се почека на Законот за основно образование.

Универзитетски професори пак едногласни велат дека потребно е враќање на спортскиот дух и здравиот начин на живеење во основното образование.

          Хашим Тачи ги повика граѓаните да гласаат „за“ на референдумот, тоа би било добро за регионот       Cache   Translate Page      

Граѓаните на Македонија треба да гласаат ЗА на претстојниот референдум. Ова е историска и единствена шанса која треба да се искористи – порача косовскиот претседател Хашим Тачи по денешната средба со премиерот Зоран Зaeв. Рече дека земјава ја има целосната поддршка од Косово за имплементација на договорот со Грција,  а влезот во НАТО алијансата вели дека е единствена опција за стабилен регион.

„Не само за да гласаат „за“, туку и да се постигне цензусот од над 50 проценти. Така што мојата порака пред сè како човек и како пријател на оваа држава и на евроатланската Македонија е да излезете и да гласате затоа што тоа е најголемиот патриотизам што може еден граѓанин да го направи за својата татковина и за Македонија“  – Хашим Тачи – претседател на Косово

Интензивната соработка помеѓу двете земји е во корист за сите – вели премиерот Заев. Додава дека како што Тачи дава подршка за референдумот, македонската влада дава поддршка за дијалогот помеѓу Приштина и Белград.

„Го поздравувам дијалогот помеѓу Косово и Србија. Решение кое секако ќе ја унапреди состојбата на Албанците, Србите и на другите граѓани. 3:33   Многу е важно лидерите од регионот да бидат обединети за одржлив мир, економски развој, регионална соработка и членството во Европската Унија“ - Зоран Заев

По билатералната средба на двете делегации, Косовскиот претседател оствари средба и со лидерот на опозицијата Христијан Мицкоски, собранискиот спикер Талат Џафери и со претседателот на ДУИ Али Ахмети.

Малко по-късно Боуи напуска бандата, изтъквайки творчески разногласия, и получава признание като соло изпълнител с излизането на сингъла му Space Oddity.

 

 

Рекламни рисунки от Боуи, който по онова време бил неизвестен изпълнител, снимки и документи, свързани с бандата, пък бяха продадени за 17 130 лири, докато постер на "Конрадс" от 1963 г. намери купувач за 6600 лири.

На същия търг албум на групата "Лед Зепелин" бе продаден за 14 000 лири, а за написана на ръка композиция на Джими Хендрикс от 70-те години на миналия век бяха платени 10 800 лири.

          Шеќеринска: Политичарите да се обединат за час поскоро влез во ЕУ и НАТО      Cache   Translate Page      

„Неодговорно е некој да се коцка со државните стратешки приоритети на Македонија заради лични или партиски интереси. Политичките лидери мора да се обединат за час поскоро да влеземе во ЕУ“, порача министерката за одбрана, Радмила Шеќеринска на денешната конференција за безбедносните предизвици. Со силна политичка реторика, порача дека клучот за мир и стабилност е во влезот во НАТО, а секој поинаков чекор, вели, би бил чист „авантуризам“.

„Станува јасно дека на Македонија и е неопходно лидерство во кое политичарите повеќе ќе размислуваат за државата, а помалку за своите лични или партиски интереси и во тоа име ние како Влада го испративме повикот дека сега повеќе од претходно на Македонија и треба единство“ - вели Радмила Шеќеринска.

Лажните вести и црната пропаганда се нов феномен на безбедносни закани, а особено се влијателни во сензитивни периоди, како на пример во референдумска кампања, порачаа владините претставници. А новата владина стратегија за сајбер безбедност ветија дека ќе ги следи светските трендови во борбата против дигиталните закани.

„Поради мултидимензионалната природа на хибридните закани, против одговорот на овие закани мора да опфати употреба на спектар од здружени ресурси од воен, дипломатски, разузнавачки економски и сајбер карактер” - рече Стево Пендаровски.

Странските претставници од Конзорциумот „Партнерство за мир“ изразија поддршка за Македонија за влез во Алијансата, потенцирајќи дека освен Договорот со Грција потребни се уште многу реформи за да се достигнат европските вредности.

Договорот од Преспа и референдумот се клуч за евроатлантската иднина на Македонија и Македонија треба да ја искористи таа шанса, порача министерот за надворешни работи на Холандија Стеф Блок кој е во посета на Македонија.

Министерот за надворешни работи Димитров пак порача дека освен договорот земјава останува фокусирана и на спроведување на реформите, бидејќи тие се исто така клучен услов за Европската Унија.


          Калкулантство или единствено можно решение, Мицкоски не покажа лидерство - сметаат дел од аналитичарите      Cache   Translate Page      

Официјалниот став на ВМРО ДПМНЕ кој синоќа го изнесе лидерот Мицкоски за престојниот референдум е последица на разноумието кое владее во партијата оценуваат дел од експертите, додека за други ова е вистинското решение споредбено со сите други кои исто така беа можни како опција. Аналитичарот Андреа Стојковски вели дека одлуката не е лидерска со тоа што гласачката маса се остава сама да одлучи како ќе настапи на престојниот референдум. Според него ова не е типично за партија која се смета  за државотворна и вели не се исклучува можноста наскоро да дојде и до нови внатре партиски промени.

„Очигледно е дека станува збор за една тоатлно шизофрена ситуација. Шизофрена кога велам мислам на тоа дека вчера Мицкоски рече ќе остави на граѓаните да одлучат по свое убедување, а денеска партијата се оградува од  нивниот советник, Владо Поповски, во Град Скопје кој вели дека договорот треба да се прифати каков што е и да се излезе да се гласа „за“. Меѓутоа мислам дека повеќе зрело е да се има став за едно вакво круцијално прашање“, вели Андра Стојковски - аналитичар

Иако во голема мера аналитичарите се согласни дека постои внатрепартиско разногласие  во ВМРО-ДПМНЕ сепак аналитичарот Александар Кржаловски повикувајќи се и на анкетите на МЦМС оценува дека одлуката која ја донесе најголемата опозициска партија во моментот е најочекуваната со оглед на околностите.

„Мицкоски, лично се изјасни уште истиот ден кога го оцени договорот како капитулантски  и дека тој ќе гласа против. Интересно е дали сега тој навистина ќе излезе и ќе гласа против. Дали тоа ќе биде негова лична одлука и другата страна е дека беше подемократски чекор на одлука. Нели требаше да се слушне мислењето на членството па да се изрази ставот. Очигледно во таа постапка имаше многу различни мислења како „за“, против и бојкот па партијата не избра ниту еден од овие ставови и се одлучи за четврта опција која изгледа е најлесна за нив, но не укажува на јасен став“, вели Александар Кржаловски - аналитичар

Одлуката за тоа симпатизерите и членовите на ВМРО-ДПМНЕ сами да одлучат како ќе настапат на престојниот референдум дојде како официјален став на партијата на нешто помалку од 20 тина дена пред референдумот. По вчерашниот долг маратонски ден по Извршниот и Централнит комитет на крајот лидерот Мицкоски на пресконференцијата на која го соопшти и ставот исто така го повика на дебата и премиерот Зоран Заев , кој пак денеска експресно одговори дека не се плаши од дебата но го повика  Мицкоски најпрвин јавно да се изјасни дека е против бојкот, а потоа му понуди и сам да бира медиум за да се соочат. 


          И берзата го чека исходот од референдумот      Cache   Translate Page      

И Македонската берза го чека исходот од референдумот. По растот на тргувањето на почетокот на годинава, сега имаме блага стагнација. Сите се во исчекување на резултатот од референдумското прашање што директно ќе влијае врз интересот за вложување, како од домашните, така и од странските вложувачи.

Македонската берза во првата половина од годинава бележи зголемување на прометот од 182 насто.

Фирмите кои котираат на берзата за осум месеци оствариле вкупна нето добивка од 140 милиони евра. Од 99 компанија кои доставиле извештаи, 72 прикажале добивка, а 27 работеле со загуба. Еве кои компании годинава имале најголема добивка.

Од вкупно 10, пет се банки. На првите три места се Стопанска банка-Скопје, Комерцијална и НЛБ банка. По нив се Македонскиот телеком, Мермерен комбинат-Прилеп и Цементарница Усје. 

Гледано по сектори, добро се работи и во фармацијата, бизнисот со нафта и осигурувањето. Ниту една компанија таму не работела со загуби.

На градежништвото се уште не му оди добро. Во индустријата дури 12 компании пријавиле загуби, а слична е состојбата и кај услугите и трговијата.

Од јануари до август кај класичното тргување остварен е промет од 54 милиони евра, што е за 61 процент повеќе од истиот период лани. Прометот кај акциите е зголемен за 50 насто, а кај блок транскациите, дури за 490 проценти. 


          100 Essential Films That Deserve More Attention - 11. Images      Cache   Translate Page      
People embrace the enchanting glow of the big screen for all manner of reasons; to journey to faraway places they could only ever imagine, to experience the escapism of a captivating story, or maybe to indulge in an obsession with the world of cinema. For me, all three of these reasons apply - and many more - but first and foremost is the satisfaction of recommending obscure films to other like-minded individuals who adopt them as their new favourites.

With over 100 years worth of films to choose from, and many of these now available at the click of a button, it can be extremely difficult to narrow your choices down to pick a film to watch. Although cinema has been around for over four times longer than my life on this earth, I have spent what some may consider an unhealthy amount of these years delving into the history of films to discover some of the best hidden gems out there.

This series of articles aims to highlight the overlooked masterpieces that I have unearthed whilst exploring the forgotten recesses of cinema. Take a gamble on any one of these films and I guarantee that you will be eagerly awaiting all future instalments in this series. You may well have heard of a number of these films; my aim isn't merely to shine a spotlight on the most obscure films out there, but to share my enjoyment of those films which don't have the cult following I believe they deserve.

Director - Robert Altman
Country - USA
Year - 1972
Runtime - 104 Minutes

Prolific film directors can often suffer the misfortune of having select films simply fading into obscurity over time. Five time academy award nominee Robert Altman is one such film-maker who directed a number of American classics throughout his incredible career, including MASH, Nashville and The Player. Many of his lesser celebrated films have left an indelible impression on audiences lucky enough to see them but don't garner the recognition awarded to his commercially successful films. Coming off the success of McCabe & Mrs Miller, Altman directed a nightmarish horror film, Images (1972); a bleak exploration of schizophrenia that retains the power to startle viewers almost fifty years later. Images was well received on its initial release – Susannah York even won the Best actress award at Cannes for her staggering performance – but it appears to have drifted out of the collective consciousness of cinephiles as time has passed by.

Taking its cue from Ingmar Bergman's radical study on identity, Persona (1965), Altman plays around with bizarre imagery and strange sounds to invoke the utter confusion that his main protagonist, Cathryn (Susannah York), suffers at the hands of her cruel psychological condition. Cathryn's distress is exacerbated by the absence of her busy husband, Hugh (Rene Auberjonois), so he plans a quiet weekend away together at a remote Irish cottage to ease her tension whilst allowing them some time to relax before the arrival of their first born.

Their plans for a peaceful retreat are put on hold with the arrival of Hugh’s friend, Rene (Macel Bozzuffi), and a strange parade of other visitors including those who live nearby or pass the cottage whilst out for a walk in the countryside. As we begin to see the instability of Cathryn’s mental state, it becomes apparent that not of all those who stop by are really there, and she has as much difficulty as us discerning who is real and who is merely a figment of her imagination. The schizophrenia really begins to take hold when Cathryn imagines she is being visited by her ex-lover who died many years ago, and as her agitation worsens, she starts to lash out at the apparitions that plague her, endangering herself and others around her.

There are some alarming scenes of bloody violence and a suggestive sex scene that emphasise the fragile state of Cathryn’s mind but Altman’s care and attention to these sequences places them firmly in the realm of art house rather than exploitation. Altman takes his cue from Hitchcock’s shower scene in Psycho in which we never actually see the blade penetrate the skin. He prefers to allow the audience to fill in the gaps, alluding to the graphic violence that accompanies Cathryn’s breakdown and making us believe we see more than is actually shown through the use of well-timed cuts or displaying the gory aftermath of such incidents.


York’s central performance is a tour de force in acting. The torment Cathryn experiences is disarming and frightening as she reacts to the apparitions with genuine terror and confusion, and York encapsulates this emotional distress with a bravura depiction of a schizophrenic. Those who play the imagined characters are equally as captivating with their strange and aggressive behaviours that provoke Cathryn; heightening the dramatic tension and adding to the illusion that they only exist in her mind.

Altman went on to revisit this fascinating concept for his later film 3 Women, which is the perfect companion piece to Images, and although it tones down the horror in favour of a more surreal approach to the subject matter, it is equally as compelling, and is far more well-known than its spiritual predecessor. For me though, Images remains my favourite of the two; successful film directors rarely venture into the world of horror - with many viewing it as a fantastical avenue that isn’t credible - and it is always a joy to see such an accomplished director’s stance on the genre. This cruel and compelling character study is a superb art-house horror and it fills me with a pang of regret that Altman never again explored the darker side of cinema.

If you take the time to watch Images then it would be awesome if you could also take the time to let me know what you thought of it, either by commenting below or tweeting me @filmbantha. Thanks, and enjoy!

          Се работи за иднината на државата, јас ќе гласам „за” на референдумот - Црвенковски со писмо до граѓаните      Cache   Translate Page      

После долга апстиненција, поранешниот претседател Бранко Црвенковски се огласи во јавноста за Договорот со Грција и референдумот. Договорот за Црвенковски е далеку од добар, но вели освен неговото спроведување, друга опција нема.

„На 30 септември јас ќе излезам на референдумското изјаснување и ќе гласам ЗА, не затоа што мислам дека Преспанскиот договор е голема победа и успех, туку затоа што сметам дека е нужност од која во даденава ситуација нема бегање. Ќе гласам „ЗА“, не затоа што мислам дека неговото спроведување нема да предизвика негативни последици, туку затоа што негативните последици од неговото пропаѓање ќе бидат несразмерно поголеми. Потписот е ставен и после тој чин враќање назад нема. Ниту во иднина оваа или некоја друга грчка влада ќе се откаже од стекнатите позиции со овој договор, ниту меѓународната заедница ќе има разбирање за таквата наша несериозност и неспроведување на превземените обврски“ вели Црвенковски.

Во писмото Црвенковски посочува и дека Македонија веќе и нема друг излез освен ЕУ и НАТО, покрај останатото и покрај неговите грешки.

„За жал, во овие 27 години ние покажавме дека немаме сопствен капацитет да спроведеме квалитетни реформи во општеството без сериозен притисок и мониторинг од надвор. И за тоа чувствувам и голема лична одговорност,“ вели екс-претседателот.

Црвенковски додава и дека граѓаните имаат многу причини за незадоволство од актуелната и од сите досегашни власти, но додава дека референдумот нема врска со изборите но 30 септември е нешто сосема друго. На овој референдум ќе се одлучува, не кој ќе владее, туку кој пат кон иднината како држава ќе го избереме.


          Apple ще снима свои филми и сериали      Cache   Translate Page      

Apple влиза в битка с Amazon и Netflix от 2019 г. и ще предлага не само стрийминг на видео, а и собствени продукци, съобщи Deadline.com.

Компанията е купила наскоро международните права върху документалния филм The Elephant Queen (който дебютира наскоро на кинофестивала в Торонто) и анимацията Wolfwalkers. 

В добавка хората на покойния Стийв Джобс готвят телевизионна адаптация на романа "Фондация" на Айзък Азимов, с която вероятно се надяват наистина да ударят конкуренцията. Известният писател-фантаст не е екранизиран от трагичния I, robot с Уил Смит от 2004 г. насам.

Според слуховете компанията в Купертино ще предложи и сериала Amazing Stories на Спилбърг и фантастичната класика Battlestar Galactica.

Очаква се новата услуга да стартира през март 2019 г. - първоначално само в САЩ.


          Конференција: Македонија се соочува хибридни закани од типот на црна пропаганда      Cache   Translate Page      

Безбедносните ризици со кои се соочуваат земјите веќе не се конвенционални, туку хибридни. Најдобар начин земјите да се одбранат од нив е да го зголемат нивото на свесност, да соработуваат со партнерите и со другите меѓународни организации, се дел од ставовите на учесниците на конференција „Стабилизирачки ефекти од евроатлантската интеграција: Да работиме заедно против хибридните закани“ што се одржа денеска во Скопје.

- Нашето искуство во Македонија покажува дека во ниту еден момент државата не се најде во криза поради еден тип на закани и опасности секогаш проблем кога различни типови закани и слабости ќе коинцидираат. Тоа искуство треба да се има на ум кога се соочуваме со еден од големите предизвици во нашата историја - референдумот, на кој граѓаните треба да донесат одлука за отстранување на последната пречка кон полноправно членство во НАТО и забрзана интеграција во ЕУ, рече вицепремиерката и министерка за одбрана Радмила Шекеринска.

Таа потенцира дека Македонија се соочува хибридни закани од типот на црна пропаганда, оцрнување на дел од државните и меѓународните институции и извртување на легитимните интереси на Македонија.

- Убедена сум дека ќе се справиме со овој тип закани бидејќи граѓаните знаат каква држава посакуваат и каде припаѓа Македонија. Наша задача е да го обезбедиме тој пат да ги предводиме да бидеме вистински лидери а не следбеници, рече Шекеринска.

Според неа, ова е историска шанса која ако ја испуштиме сигурно нема да се повтори во следните 10-20 години.

- Да се биде држава на Балканот, а да не се преземат сите неопходни чекори да се зацрвсти стабилноста и безбедноста на граѓаните, да се зацврсти територијалниот интегритет и суверенитет е неодговорно и е чист авантуризам, потенцира министерката Шекеринска.

Хибридните закани, рече државниот секретар во МНР Виктор Димовски, доаѓаат од земји кои заради сопствени интереси користат разни начини да ги постигнат.

- Ние во регионот не сме отпорни на вакви закани, туку напртотив иако опкружен со земји членки на ЕУ и НАТО, поради историски и геостратешки констелации можеби е ранлив повече од другите региони. Затоа главен аргумент против таканаречените сиви зони на несигурност е целосната интеграција на регионот во НАТО и ЕУ, рече Димовски.

Додаде дека клуч на борба е континуирано собирање и споделување и проценка на информациите на стратешките патнери со цел навремено откривање и одвраќање на тековните и евентуални нови хибридни активности

Мајкл Гаул, копретседавач на Работната група за новите безбедносни предизвици, рече дека меѓународната поддршка за Македонија е повеќе од јасна и дека сите големи сили сакаат да ја поддржат земјава во овој нејзин историски чин и во стратешката цел – евроатлантските интеграции.

Во однос на новите безбедносни предизвици, Гаул истакна дека против новите закани како што е кибер криминалот и радикализацијата не можеме да се бориме со оружје и со проектили и оттаму справувањето со хибридните закани е отежнато.

Тој смета дека најдобар начин земјите да се одбранат од хибридните закани да го зголемат нивото на свесност, да соработуваат со партнерите и со другите меѓународни организации.

Жан-Марк Рикли, раководител на Одделот за меѓународен ризик во Женевскиот центар за безбедносна политика рече дека Македонија е мала држава и не може да си дозволи да се занимава со ваков вид закани што претставуваат опасност и за големите сили.

- Не можете да изградите ѕид околу вас за да се заштитите. Тоа е веќе минато. Во кибер димензијата не може да градите ѕидови, бидејќи главните актери во овие закани користат и човечки и нечовечки ресурси, рече Рикли.

Тој како пример ја посочи Исламската Држава што вооружува бегалци и ги инфилтрира во другите земји што, како што кажа тој, опсегот на овие закани е многу голем.

Хрватската амбасадорка во земјава Данијела Баришиќ, која е и контакт Амбасада на НАТО, смета дека поканата на Македонија за да пристапи во Алијансата е доказ за отворената политика на Алијансата.

- Имате историска шанса на претстојниот референдум да ја постигнете целта што си ја зацртавте пред 27 години, а тоа е членството во ЕУ и во НАТО, рече таа.

Говорејќи за новите хибридни закани рече дека новата технологија освен што донела бенефити, донела и големи ризици. Посочи дека стратегиско орудие на хибридните закани се лажните вести кои се шират со многу поголема брзина за разлика од другите вести бидејќи оние кои ги шират најчесто не го почитуваат законот.

Истакна дека за да се справиме со хибридните закани, односно лажните вести, треба да се охрабрат и зајакнат меин стрим медиумите и јавните медиуми кои можат да ги препознаат лажните вести, јакнење на свеста, демократијата, владеењето на правото.


          За какво се говори с китаец във френски бар      Cache   Translate Page      

Френските частни университети нямат нищо със Софийския университет. Ама наистина. Е, малко са неорганизирани понякога. Разбирайте, картите за достъп се бавят с един ден. (ISIC картите си чакахме по повече от два месеца в СУ, между другото.)

Ние, неориентираните студенти, не сме длъжни да знаем точно към кого да отправим всеки отделен въпрос.

„Не оставяйте въпрос без отговор“, казва ни Гийом, координаторът на международния отдел. „Ако някой от нас не може да ви помогне, ще се свърже с друг от екипа, който може. Ние комуникираме помежду си непрекъснато.“

Не е като да те препращат из разни гишета, без да могат да ти обяснят какво изобщо да направиш, за да си решиш проблема…

Във всеки от факултетите на този университет са вложени милиони. Затова не може и дума да става за сравнение на материалната база с тази на Софийския университет. Не би било честно от моя страна, особено като се има предвид, че у дома плащам символична такса, за да получа достъп до висше образование. А тук хората плащат хиляди евро всеки семестър. Не мога да сравня и легендарната СУСИ със системата тук, която свързва картата ти за достъп до сградите, библиотеките и принтерите с онлайн система, която съдържа разписанието на лекциите и семинарите и служебен имейл, на който автоматично си получаваш сканираните документи.

Като свикнали с администрацията на СУ обаче не може да не ни направи впечатление (поне привидното) желание на хората тук да ти помогнат. Не да ти се карат и да ти обясняват как за нищо не ставаш и нищо не разбираш, след като не си успял да намериш отговор на въпроса си в сайта им.

Но стига съм се оплаквала косвено от българската администрация. Не е като френската да си няма недостатъци…

***

Първият ден в университета беше почти културен шок – над 350 чуждестранни студенти в общо четири факултета. Хора от Белгия, Испания, САЩ, Индия, Китай, Виетнам, Финландия, Австралия, Бразилия… От където се сетите. Повечето – или на обмен по Еразъм+ или сходни програми, или от чуждестранните партньори на университета.

На опашките за студентските карти се заговаряме с двама китайци – девойката ще прекара година и половина в Нант, а младежът е на обмен, като нас. Белгийката, която не говори френски, обясни, че за пръв път в живота си съжалява, че е учила само фламандски (и английски де). Първият човек от нашата програма, когото срещнахме, беше едно момиче от Виетнам, което учи в Полша и е дошло на обмен по Еразъм във Франция. С индийците си станахме гъсти веднага. Роджър обясни, че му е мечта да посети няколко източноевропейски страни, сред които и България. Странно, индиецът знае къде е България, а някои колеги от Европа дори не знаят, че е част от Европейския съюз…

Много от колегите ни са в магистърски програми в страните си. Не знам дали знаете, но френската образователна система е малко особена. След като изкарат тукашните матури (Le baccalaureat), хората или отиват в държавен университет (който малко повече напомня нашите висши учебни заведения), или карат две подготвителни години в частна школа, след което ходят на изпити, с резултатите от които кандидатстват в частни висши училища (т.нар. Grandes écoles). Та програмата в тези grandes écoles се води магистратура. Хората обаче са си подготвили домашното и знаят кой точно къде трябва да ходи в зависимост от образователната система в съответната страна партньор. Накратко – в България сме в бакалавърска програма, а тук – в магистърска.

В презентацията първия ден деканката на факултета ни (която ни разведе из сградата и ни даде номера си – да й звъним като се наложи – нещо почти немислимо за български университет, вярвайте ми) побърза да ни увери, че несъответствията в образователните системи не са проблем. И че ако имаме нужда от помощ и допълнителни обяснения – трябва да питаме преподавателите. Пък ако не ни обяснят – да й звъннем или да й пишем. Български студенти, представяте ли си?

***

След като сме изпуснали първите събирания с колегите (защото сме били скапани от обикаляне по разни офиси и от главоблъсканици с документи), решаваме най-сетне да ходим на някое от събитията, организирани от местните студенти от т.нар. международен екип. Те ни помагат наистина с всичко – от административни подробности, до социализация и намиране на готини барове.

Френски бар. Coté Plage се казва, но не е точно на брега на Лоара. И добре че, иначе не знам как щяха да вадят удавените. Вижда се още от спирката на трамвая. Огромна група хора пред една от няколко еднакво изглеждащи сгради. Чак като се приближиш става ясно, че там всъщност има бар, а не просто огромна тълпа на тротоара.

Роджър ни засича отдалеч. Докато се доберем до бара се запознаваме със свръхконтактен младеж от Азербайджан, който много държи да ни покаже, че знае руски, и неговия другар – срамежлив индиец. Всички тук пият бира, но аз не изневерявам на вкуса си – шардоне от долината на Лоара. Харесва ми. Има малко по-натрапчив вкус сякаш. Барманът ме съветва да си направя обиколка из замъците по реката, ако харесвам бели вина. Вече съм го планирала, отговарям.

Отнема ми повече от пет минути да се измъкна от барчето, което всъщност е доста малко. Катя ме чака отвън. Казваме си наздраве с Роджър, който вече се е научил да го произнася доста добре на български. На хинди ми звучи почти невъзможно.

Запознаваме се с две момичета от Тайван. Веднага намираме за какво да си говорим. Обяснявам им, че в България работя като журналист и че се интересувам от международна политика. Говорим си за отношенията на Тайван с Китай. Обясняват ми, че всъщност никой в островната държава не иска тя да е част от Китай. „Искаме да сме по-свободни“, казва ми Джанис.

Деби пък ме пита за медиите в България. Как да го обясня с две думи в безкрайно пълен и шумен бар, чудя се.

„Ами, повечето медии са собственост на хора, лоялни към властта“, казвам. „Или властта е лоялна към тях, всъщност. Сложно е… Има и няколко, издания, които може да се опишат като опозиционни и се стремят да отразяват реалността. Имам късмета да работя в такова…“, добавям и последните ми думи потъват в започналата току-що песен на Bon Jovi и гласовете на крещящите наоколо хора.

„Разбирам“, казва Деби. „Нищо не е само черно или бяло.“

После си говорим за абитуриентските балове в България, защото Джанис видя някаква моя снимка във фейсбук.

„Нищо особено, просто се обличаме в скъпи дрехи и отиваме да се видим за последно със съучениците от гимназията… Точно както бихме могли и по дънки и тениски.“

Те се смеят.

„При нас няма такива традиции“, казва Джанис. Поздравления за което, мисля си.

След малко към малката ни субкомпания се присъединява и един китаец. Става интересно, мисля си. Но си говорим основно за университета и кампусите.

Отивам за втора чаша вино. Когато се връщам, тайванките ги няма. Междувременно сме се запознали с двама откровено пияни французи – момче и момиче – които очевидно си търсят слушатели за проблемите си. Тя ни разказва за своето гадже, което било много скучно, той ни разказва за своето, което вече не помня какво беше…

Завързвам разговор с Даниел, китаеца. Това е английското му име, използва го, защото европейците по-лесно ги помним. Говорим си още за университета. Той отбелязва, че не пие никога и нищо. Вдигам рамене – личен избор.

Внезапно обръща разговора към въпроса с Тайван отпреди малко. Питам го какво мисли той.

„В училище ни учат, че Китай и Тайван са едно цяло – един народ, една култура, една икономика“, казва той.

„Не, аз не питам какво ви учат, а какво мислиш ти.“

„Мисля това, което са ме учили – Китай и Тайван са една страна.“

„Не всички в Тайван мислят така, струва ми се“, отбелязвам аз.

„Напротив, те знаят, че за тях е добре да са част от Китай.“

„Не искам да забърквам политически спорове, но колегите от Тайван май не мислят така. Казват, че сънародниците им искат повече свобода и независимост.“

„Ти мислиш, че не съм свободен в Китай ли?“

„Ползваш ли фейсбук там?“

„Не, но си имаме наши социални мрежи.“

„А тях дали управляващите ги следят?“

„За добро е.“

„Така ли? А можеш ли да публикуваш снимка на Мечо Пух в някоя социална мрежа?“

„Това какво общо има?“

„Ами, аз мога да мисля, че Мечо Пух е най-готината книжка с най-готините герои. Обаче някой във вашата страна го смята за обидно и аз не мога да го публикувам. Фейсбук също блокира за думи, които се смятат за обидни. И фейсбук не е свободна мрежа. Но ние говорим за това.“

„Това не ограничава свободата ни. А и когато искаш да постигнеш бърз напредък, като Китай, който стана от развиваща се страна икономическа сила за няколко десетилетия, трябва да жертваш свобода, не мислиш ли?“

„Какво мислиш за събитията на Тянънмън?“

„Кои събития?“

„Потушаването на студентските протести. Хиляди са убити…“

„Не знам много за това, но май студентите са предизвикали безредици.“

„Според западните журналисти, които са присъствали, хиляди хора са убити. Срещу мирни протести са изпратени войници с танкове…“, започвам аз, но ме прекъсва пияният французин Симон, който ми обяснява за силната текила и още нещо за приятеля си.

Идва неговата спътница, която се оказва най-добрата му приятелка. Тръгваме да си вземат нещо за ядене, а Даниел вече си е намерил други слушатели (сигурно не толкова враждебни като мен).

Кей, другият индиец (това също не е оригиналното му име), ни пита дали ще ходим в някакъв си нощен клуб. Ще ходим да спим, отговаряме. Мразя клубове…

Към един през нощта аз, Катя и Деби се отправяме към спирката на трамвая (който работи до 2 часа в петък и събота, въпреки че има и нощен транспорт). Даниел тръгва с нас. Разменяме по някоя и друга дума. Забелязваме, че луната тук изглежда по-голяма, отколкото вкъщи…

Когато се прибираме в притихналата къща, ходим на пръсти. Котката се събужда и тръгва с нас. Ако има по-кисело същество от мен в тази къща, то това е котката. И май е първата котка, с която не се разбирам изобщо. Е, имам четири месеца. Ако не намеря общ език с една котка, макар и глезена и кисела, не знам с кого…

Е.

 

ПС: Може да отказахме да посетим френски клуб (не знам защо, но си го представям като нещо ужасно), но успяхме да отидем на джаз фестивал – Rendez-vous sur l’Erdre. Пращам ви видео на човек с акордеон, който свири танго. Французите не го оцениха особено високо сякаш, но аз си мисля, че беше сред най-добрите на този фестивал…

          Chancellor's 2018 State of the University Address      Cache   Translate Page      

UCSF Chancellor Sam Hawgood, MBBS, will deliver his fifth State of the University address on Tuesday, Oct. 30, from noon to 1 p.m. in Cole Hall on the Parnassus campus.

The Chancellor will share highlights over the past year, including major milestones in research, education and patient care, as well as acknowledge the great work of members of the UCSF community. He will also provide updates on UCSF’s current initiatives and plans, including the revitalization of the Parnassus Heights campus and the campaign to raise $5 billion to sustain UCSF’s robust enterprise and to recruit and retain top talent.

The Chancellor will focus his remarks on UCSF’s extensive work in the community to address health inequities and some of the most challenging societal issues, such as homelessness, mental health and poverty.

The address will be presented live in Cole Hall on the Parnassus campus and from UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. It will be live streamed on YouTube and simulcast at Byers Hall in Genentech Hall at Mission Bay, Herbst Hall at Mount Zion as well as in Fresno.

Joining the Chancellor for his presentation will be Margot Kushel, MD, professor of medicine and director of the Center for Vulnerable Populations at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, and Dayna Long, MD, medical director for the Department of Community Health and Engagement at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland.

Kushel’s research focuses on the causes and consequences of homelessness and housing instability, with the goal of preventing and ending homelessness and ameliorating the effects of homelessness on health. Her research seeks to inform clinical practice, programs, and policies.

Long is finding ways to use health care settings as a buffer against toxic stress in order to help kids achieve better outcomes. She is working in Oakland and collaborating with other UCSF researchers on multidisciplinary clinical programs, trials and partnerships to address disparities that will help improve the health of all children.

          WINE: GIVE BOOZE A CHANCE/BONZO DOG DOO-DAH BAND      Cache   Translate Page      

I suspect the Bonzo's didn't really translate that well across the pond to the USA, that second of two nations divided by a single language. Indeed, apart from a cult of ageing sex- and septuagenarians, I've never been sure whether they actually meant so much over here, their one slab of chart action being produced by one Paul McCartney, often mistakenly thought to be also written by him. But this glorious parody never fails to make me smile, even as I repeatedly play it to my bemused, and unamused, wife. Nonetheless, it seems, in a fortnight of songs about wine, perhaps to give a thought about the downside. And this is probably best appreciated within the context that Vivian Stanshall, the singer and frontman of this anarchic ensemble, died arguably not indirectly from his giving booze one hell of a chance, in a fire on his houseboat, in no small part contributed to his prodigious alcohol consumption. Details vary.


The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band had no right being a success, but, in a small way, a success they were. Formed in about 1962, the aim was to provide a dada-ist counterpoint to the then trad-jazz revival of its day, which involved the deadpan recreation of the often absurd and very english approach to dixieland. Take "Hunting Tigers out in Indiah", which might be considered one such example, their recreation of an original song dating from the '30s. By this stage they were in transition from an all brass and banjo line-up, beginning to introduce more conventional, for the '60s, instrumentation. Helped in no small part by a resident spot on children's TV programme, "Please Do Not Adjust Your Set", they gradually morphed into a slightly broader parodic approach to all styles of popular music. Should you pursue the clip, it shows also the nascent beginnings of "Monty Python's Flying Circus", with all but John Cleese present. I was a child of that time, and took to this nonsense with ease, able to effortlessly assimilate the Bonzo's into my developing musical palette. (And no surprise that, as I grew older, so could become the peak audience for Python.)

Come 1967 and they had formally ditched most of the jazz, and many of the members who had played that style. A further boost was when Paul McCartney secured them a place in the Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour". Here's some outtakes of their included song "Death Cab For Cutie", should you wonder where Ben Gibbard came up with the name. It was still hardly rock and roll in any conventional sense, they somehow still finding favour on the gig circuit and, especially, at festivals. They did manage one tour to the US, as support to the Kinks, themselves perhaps on a revers journey from rock to vaudeville. It was a disaster. They lurched on for a few more tours and a few more albums, shedding members, yet retaining a hard core of Stanshall, later Rutles mastermind Neil Innes and tap-dancing drummer, "Legs" Larry Smith, alongside saxophonists Rodney Slater and Roger Ruskin Spear, inventor of ever more Heath Robertson wind instruments. Acclaim did not, however, translate into sales.


After dissolution in 1970 they had a couple of short-lived reunions. Stanshall descended into ever more eccentric behaviours, ricocheting between drunken japes with Keith Moon and writing a body of works around fictitious upper class gentleman explorer, Sir Henry Rawlinson: "Sir Henry at Rawlinson End", initially as spoken word projects, later a series of books and a radio piece, even a film, with Trevor Howard, no less!. He died in 1995. Innes, ahead of the Rutles, went on to be the resident musical go-to for the Monty Python team, often appearing in their live concerts. Between 2006-8 a final official reunion took place, with Stanshall replaced by comedians/actors Phill Jupitus and Ade Edmondson, playing to nostalgia hungry audiences of (very) ageing schoolboys.

I confess I always found the band to be a better idea than a reality. You probably had to be there, recorded material having dated dreadfully. But for that idea I am grateful. And, for a short time, back in the dim and distant, glad also that I was there. Surely that is worth raising a glass to.

Give booze a chance.

Остановите время, я сойду
На станции уставший и помятый.
Вы спросите: В каком году?
Конечно же, в родных семидесятых.

Всё заберите шмотки, телефон
И интернет навеки отключите.
Хочу вернуться в этот дивный сон,
Где доброте учил нас всех учитель.

Остановите время там, где в бочках квас,
Где хлеб ржанной и спички по копейке,
И озорной наш, самый лучший класс,
Где не зазорно было выйти в телогрейке.

Остановите время, я сойду,
Уставший здесь от всяких технологий,
И по росе из прошлого пойду,
Моча в росе свои морщинистые ноги.

Остановите время хоть на миг,
И я на поезд жизни опоздаю.
Вы слышите души истошный крик:
Я в будущее ехать не желаю.

          Conservation-International-Issues-Statement-in-Support-of-the-Market-Choice-Act      Cache   Translate Page      
​Arlington, Va. (September 11, 2018) – Conservation International today issued a statement applauding Representative Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) for authoring the Market Choice Act, which would place a price on carbon emissions while repealing the federal gas tax. The proposal would achieve significant carbon emission reductions and generate revenue for modernizing the United States' infrastructure – which would improve and benefit not only our environment, but also our economy.

The Market Choice Act would levy a tax on fossil fuels and certain industrial facilities and products. The additional revenue – $285 billion for the Highway Trust Fund and $18 billion for the Airways Trust Fund– would provide a pathway for robust investment in American infrastructure, resulting in reduced travel times, improved logistical efficiency, and economic growth.

Additionally, the legislation provides funding for natural infrastructure to aid coastal communities, fund reforestation efforts, and regional conservation partnerships. 

We are pleased to see a thoughtful solution to modernize our economy, protect our environment, and improve livelihoods. This is an important first step to putting the U.S. economy on the prosperous path toward a low-carbon, clean energy future. We are grateful for Mr. Curbelo's leadership on this highly impactful issue," said Shyla Raghav, Conservation International's Climate Lead. 

The carbon tax would start at $24 per ton of carbon dioxide emissions and increase at a rate of 2 percent a year. This proposal would cover approximately 85 percent of U.S. GHG emissions. Representative Curbelo's proposal would reduce carbon emissions by 27–32 percent reductions in net greenhouse gas emissions levels by 2025 and 30–40 percent reductions by 2030. If enacted this legislation would put the Unites States on a path to reducing GHG emissions that would fulfil and exceed the targets set out under the Paris Climate Agreement and Clean Power Plan.

02. 23 июня 1963. После короткой встречи с федеральным канцлером Аденауэром, президент осмотрел Кельн



«Я — берлинец» (нем. Ich bin ein Berliner) — ставшая культовой заключительная фраза из исторической речи американского президента Джона Кеннеди 26 июня 1963 г. перед Шёнебергской ратушей в тогдашнем Западном Берлине. Кеннеди выразил свою солидарность и поддержку западным берлинцам после возведения коммунистическим режимом ГДР Берлинской стены.

Кеннеди повторил фразу в своей речи дважды:Two thousand years ago the proudest boast was ”civis Romanus sum.” Today, in the world of freedom, the proudest boast is ”Ich bin ein Berliner.”

Две тысячи лет назад слова, произносимые с особой гордостью, которые мог сказать человек, были ”civis Romanus sum” (”Я гражданин Рима”). Сейчас, в свободном мире, самые гордые слова есть ”Ich bin ein Berliner”.

All free men, wherever they may live, are citizens of Berlin, and, therefore, as a free man, I take pride in the words ”Ich bin ein Berliner”.

Все свободные люди, где бы они ни жили — сейчас граждане Берлина, и поэтому, как свободный человек, я горжусь словами «Ich bin ein Berliner».Фраза часто цитировалась как в период объединения Германии, так и в настоящее время — в связи с празднованием исторических дат и юбилеев.

          Armello releasing for Switch in Japan on Sept. 27th, 2018      Cache   Translate Page      

Armello is a grand swashbuckling adventure that combines three styles of play; The deep tactics of card games with the rich strategy of table top board games, combined with a character role-playing system.

As a hero from one of the clans of Armello, you'll quest, scheme, hire agents, explore, vanquish monsters, cast spells and face off against other players, with one ultimate end goal in mind — storming the palace and becoming King or Queen of Armello. The Kingdom of Armello is as dangerous as it is beautiful, perils, banes and bandits hide around every corner and a spreading corruption known as the rot is leaving no creature untouched.

Armello is League of Geeks’ attempt to revolutionise digital board and card games, whilst providing players a rich world within which they can craft their own stories of epic adventure. The aim was to create a rich game full of backstabbing, close shaves, shattered alliances, ruses and empty promises - a perfect game to play online with your friends.

Armello is going to see release for the Switch in Japan on Sept. 27th, 2018. The title will cost 1,980 Yen and the preload option is now available.

Impale knights on spikes to create a safe path. Catch a knight on a sawblade to land the body on a button. Freeze knights into blocks of ice to reach higher ground.

You’ll also electrocute knights to open doors, blast knights out of cannons, and even zombify a knight to be your violent, dim-witted friend. As you journey through treacherous and trap-ridden worlds, you’ll show no mercy to solve each challenging puzzle.

In this game, death is not a setback. It is your only means to progress.

          Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae coming to Switch      Cache   Translate Page      

Misa is a Blade Templar, a secret defender of humanity, who also happens to be a high school student. When her classmate Suzuka succumbs to the dark seduction of the Demon Blade, Misa realizes she must protect the world at all costs. The evil sword has already begun draining Suzuka’s life force, and if Misa can’t destroy the Blade alone, she may very well need to strike her friend down.

Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae focuses on high-speed, arena-based action. Use lightning-fast sword slashes, hand-to-hand attacks, and mysterious ancient fighting techniques to defeat wave after wave of demonic foes. Make no mistake; this will not be easy. Your enemies are relentless and will attack from all sides. If you aren’t prepared to strike and roll, you’ll be overwhelmed in no time flat.

Weaken your opponents with vicious wounds, employ hand-to-hand techniques to build your katana gauge, and then cut deep with your divine sword. A spectacular flurry of blades will take down even the largest crowd of NPCs! After beating them bloody, sheathe your sword to finish them off with style. Be warned, however: if the enemy isn’t “bleeding”, then they’ll take the opportunity to strike you mid-pose!

Use skill points to learn new skills, upgrade your abilities, and take on brutal bosses. With every playthrough of Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae, you will continue to hone your skills as a player until you’re virtually unstoppable! If the game suddenly becomes too easy, there are three difficulty levels with which to test your mettle. Good luck!

Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae will hit the Switch in Japan on September 20th, 2018 for 1,200 yen. No word on a localization at this time.

          Black and White Bushido Coming Soon To Switch      Cache   Translate Page      

It has been announced that 2D brawler Black and White Bushido will be coming to Nintendo Switch this autumn.

Black and White Bushido from games developer and publisher Good Catch, is a 2D arena brawler for 1 - 4 players that pits the forces of light and shadow against each other. Each team can disappear into their respective colours and move without being seen. Fight for control of the light or the dark in multiple arenas, hiding from your foes and seizing objectives. Pick up items and use them to surprise, maim and trap your opponents in a way only a true warrior can. Players choose a team, either Shadow or Light and compete to win based either on number of kills or territory captured. There is no energy, the game is one hit kill, though with the potential for endless respawns. Players may jump, dash, attack, creep, teleport and use items in their quest for victory.

          Рыбалка на Оби. Ловим хищника      Cache   Translate Page      

Выехали компанией в выходные на Обь. Рыбалка с берега. Все как всегда. Поставили фидеры с живцами. Фидеры ставили на мели. Глубина на забросе не более 1.5 м. Сами со спиннингами разошлись по берегу. Места сильно закоряженные. За субботу я на зацепах оставил десяток приманок. В итоги спиннингами на всех поймали три щучки. Все остальное было поймано на живцов. Я поймал спиннингом пару щук- 0.8 и 1.7кг. и фидером на живца судака 1.7 кг и окуня 0.7 кг. Большую щуку 7.9 кг. на живца поймал товарищ. Собственно из-за этой щуки пишу отчет. Первый раз видел как с берега фидером вываживается щука такого размера. Зрелище впечатляющее. Поводок – леска 0.3 мм. Крючок – одинарный 0/2. Щуку вываживали 3-4 минуты. Третий товарищ сбегал за телефоном и снял финал вываживания. На фото весь общий улов.

          Is the "Circus in Washington... drowning out good economic news"?      Cache   Translate Page      
I'm reading "There’s Never Been a President This Unpopular With an Economy This Good" (Bloomberg).
President Donald Trump’s unpopularity is unprecedented given the strength of the economy. That’s according to a Bloomberg analysis of polling data....
Is it possible that the polls are wrong? They were in 2016, when Trump blindsided everybody. I'm thinking maybe the polls are right, and it's really true that when asked, most people say they disapprove of Trump. But people disapprove of a lot of things that — when the time comes to decide what to do — they do. Drinking, eating dessert, looking at pornography. And they'll express approval of a lot of things they won't do: getting lots of sleep, eating piles of fresh vegetables, and following Jesus.

Another thing is, the economy is a pretty boring news topic compared to the "circus" of whatever bad thing Trump tweeted or what the latest Mr. Anonymous says Trump did and so forth. But the economy is always there in the background, affecting our lives. We look at the stock prices on our own, without Wolf Blitzer or whoever nudging us to look at today's statistics. Pile on Trump now, it's dangerous and fun, but when it comes time to vote, people may shrug off all the crazy stuff they've heard over the last 2 years, and vote based on the great old question "Are you better off now...?"



As we get close to Election Day, and there are debates and ads, Republicans should just make the old Reagan move and strongly prod people to look at the economy. In a few seconds, the positive news can be strongly conveyed. And the "circus" that's been cluttering up the TV shows may be hard even to remember. I'm sure Democratic Party candidates will urge voters to look at what a circus it's been and hope to blame Trump and not the media for the circus, but I'm picturing debates where the Republican candidate will easily say: My opponent is trying to distract you with the circus show you've been watching in the news all year so you won't look at one big obvious fact — the economy is doing great.

And one more thing, something even more drowned out than the economy. Trump defeated ISIS (NYT):
The last vestige of the Islamic State’s caliphate that straddled Syria and Iraq is under attack. Members of an American-backed coalition said Tuesday that they had begun a final push to oust the militants from Hajin, Syria, the remaining sliver of land under the group’s control in the region where it was born. The assault is the final chapter of a war that began more than four years ago after the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, seized vast tracts in Iraq and Syria and declared a caliphate. The group lost its last territory in Iraq last year....

          "Cocktails for Two."      Cache   Translate Page      


I'm watching that because for some reason, in the comments to "Let's explore ADHD with owls," tim in vermont said:
If you want to be a writer that Althouse enjoys, make sure you are born with the right voice, and I am not using ‘voice’ figuratively. You have to have that Spike Jones type voice mentioned in “Up On Cripple Creek” that tuned on Bessie.
Tuned on? I think that was supposed to be "turned on," but you know what they say, "tune on, turn in, drop over."

Anyway, I love the old Band song, with the lines "Now, me and my mate were back at the shack/We had Spike Jones on the box/She said, 'I can't take the way he sings/But I love to hear him talk.'

So I was looking for a video with Jones talking and not singing, and "Cocktails for Two" has no singing by Jones but it also has no talking. Ah, here — you can hear him talk:



He's explaining how he got the idea for his sound-effects and music routine watching Igor Stravinsky conducting "Firebird" while wearing squeaky shoes. Another thing I learned in that clip is that the opposite of "corny" is "subtle." Which makes perfect sense.

I didn't set an endpoint in that video, so watch as long as you want. Hang in long enough and — trigger warning — there will be Nazi salutes. Lots of them.



Now that just gave my heart a throb/To the bottom of my feet....

Die Lerche in blaue Höh entschwebt,
der Tauwind weht so lau;
sein wonniger milder Hauch belebt
und küßt das Feld, die Au.
Der Frühling in holder Pracht erwacht,
ah alle Pein zu End mag sein,
alles Leid, entflohn ist es weit!
Schmerz wird milder, frohe Bilder,
Glaub an Glück kehrt zuruck;
Sonnenschein, ah dringt nun ein,
ah, alles lacht, ach, ach, erwacht!

Da strömt auch der Liederquell,
der zu lang schon schien zu schweigen;
klingen hört dort wieder rein und hell
süße Stimmen aus den Zweigen!
Ah leis' läßt die Nachtigall
schon die ersten Töne horen,
um die Kön'gin nicht zu stören,
schweigt, ihr Sänger all!
Voller schon klingt bald ihr süßer Ton.
Ach ja bald, ah, ah ja bald!
Ah, ah, ah, ah!

O Sang der Nachtigall, holder Klang, ah ja!
Liebe durchglüht, ah, ah, ah,
tönet das Lied, ah und der Laut,
süß und traut, scheint auch Klagen zu tragen,
ah ah wiegt das Herz in süße Traumerein,
ah, ah, ah, ah, leise ein!
Sehnsucht und Lust
ah ah ah wohnt in der Brust,
ah, wenn ihr Sang lockt so bang,
funkelnd ferne wie Sterne,
ah ah zauberschimmernd wie des Mondes Strahl,
ah ah ah ah wallt durchs Tal!
Kaum will entschwinden die Nacht,
Lerchensang frisch erwacht,
ah, Licht kommt sie kunden,
Schatten entschwinden! ah!

Ah des Frühlings Stimmen klingen traut,
ah ja, ah ja ah o süßer Laut,
ah ah ah ah ach ja!

и быть богатым — но не красть,
конечно, если так возможно.

Дай Бог быть тертым калачом,
не сожранным ничьею шайкой,
ни жертвой быть, ни палачом,
ни барином, ни попрошайкой.

Дай Бог поменьше рваных ран,
когда идет большая драка.
Дай Бог побольше разных стран,
не потеряв своей, однако.

Дай Бог, чтобы твоя страна
тебя не пнула сапожищем.
Дай Бог, чтобы твоя жена
тебя любила даже нищим.

Дай Бог лжецам замкнуть уста,
глас Божий слыша в детском крике.
Дай Бог живым узреть Христа,
пусть не в мужском, так в женском лике.

Не крест — бескрестье мы несем,
а как сгибаемся убого!
Чтоб не извериться во всем,
Дай, Бог, - ну, хоть немного Бога!

Дай Бог всего-всего-всего
и сразу всем — чтоб не обидно!..
Дай Бог всего, но лишь того,
за что потом не станет стыдно!..

          New Republican Ad Targets Candidate's Rap Lyrics In Hudson Valley Race for Congress       Cache   Translate Page      

National Republicans are hitting Hudson Valley homes with a new ad criticizing the decade-old rap lyrics of a Democrat trying to flip the 19th Congressional District.

The ad from the National Republican Congressional Committee mixes sound-bites from an Antonio Delgado campaign ad with snippets from his 2006 album.

“I’m an attorney, fighting for what’s fair and just," Delgado says in the clip. That's followed by the lyrics: "Gotcha sweatin' this like ya having sex to a porno flick.”

Another snippet includes the lyric "God bless Iraq."

Delgado, an attorney and Rhodes Scholar, is taking on Republican incumbent John Faso in the northern Hudson Valley district. The race is rated a toss-up by Congressional handicappers and is expected to be one of the most expensive in the country.

Delgado is black and running in a district that census data says is 89 percent white.

"It's disappointing that John Faso and his supporters are still focused on distractions by spreading fear, hatred and division," Delgado said in a statement. "We continue to call on Faso to condemn these divisive and deceptive ads."

Delgado said he's focusing on issues such as health care, improving public schools, jobs and infrastructure.

It's the third time Republicans have criticized Delgado for his 2006 album, "Painfully Free," which Delgado recorded as AD the Voice while living in Los Angeles. In July, a New York Post story noted the controversial lyrics. 

“Mr. Delgado’s lyrics are offensive, troubling and inconsistent with the views of the people of the 19th District and America," Faso told the Daily Freeman at the time. Then last month, the Congressional Leadership Fund, a super PAC allied with House Speaker Paul Ryan, put out an ad using the lyrics.

NRCC spokesman Chris Martin said the group has reserved $1.3 million worth of ad time in the district and that the ad will run on both cable and broadcast television.

Republicans could talk about the tax cut they passed last year, or positive national economic data. On his social media feeds, Faso has noted his work to prevent opioid deaths and get a fairer trade deal for New York dairy farmers.

But the campaign ads have focused on rap lyrics.

"We're going to make sure voters understand just how extreme and out of touch Antonio Delgado is," Martin said. "They deserve to know about the sexist, anti-American rap lyrics he recorded before moving to the district and launching his campaign."

The latest polling in the race, released Wednesday by Monmouth University, shows Delgado holding a slim lead. Monmouth ran three models that vary the amount of turnout. Delgado leads 45% to 43% among all potential voters. The lead grows, 48% to 45%, based on historical midterm models and expands even further, 49% to 43%, assuming a surge of Democratic voters.

Delgado is viewed more favorably than Faso by those polled, said Monmouth University pollster Patrick Murray.

“Faso has been trying to paint Delgado as a carpetbagger with a dubious past in rap music," Murray said in a statement. "It’s not clear that those attacks have taken hold, at least not enough to give the Republican an advantage."

A Siena College poll last month showed Faso holding a 45% to 40% lead among likely voters.

           "Estamos preparados": Trump advierte sobre la llegada de la peor tormenta "en décadas"       Cache   Translate Page      

El presidente de EE.UU., Donald Trump, advirtió que el huracán Florence, que se está acercando a las costas atlánticas de EE.UU., puede convertirse en "uno de los más fuertes en décadas", y prometió tomar todas las medidas necesarias para minimizar los daños.El mantadario dijo que la seguridad de los ciudadanos estadounidenses es la prioridad más alta para su administración y que "no escatima gastos" para prepararse frente a ese desastre natural. "Estamos listos", aseguró Trump tras señalar que la tormenta que está por llegar "es tremendamente grande y tremendamente húmeda" y lleva "grandes cantidades de agua".Las autoridades ordenaron evacuar a más de un millón de personas ante el avance del huracán que, según se prevé, tocará suelo estadounidense entre el jueves y el viernes. El Centro Nacional de Huracanes de EE.UU. emitió en la madrugada de este martes un pronóstico según el cual la tempestad puede intensificarse en las próximas 24 o 36 horas hasta alcanzar la categoría 5 en la escala Saffir-Simpson, lo que equivale a vientos con una velocidad sostenida de 157 millas (252 kilómetros) por hora.#RTenEspañolSuscríbete a nuestro canal de eventos en vivo: https://www.youtube.com/user/ActualidadRT?subconfirmation=1RT en Twitter: https://twitter.com/ActualidadRTRT en Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ActualidadRTRT en Google+: https://plus.google.com/+RTenEspanol/postsRT en Vkontakte: http://vk.com/actualidadrtVea nuestra señal en vivo: http://actualidad.rt.com/envivoRT EN ESPAÑOL: DESDE RUSIA CON INFORMACIÓN

地方票「勝敗ライン55%」甘利氏が言及 自民総裁選  :日本経済新聞

下村氏も「55%」と言ってましたが、選対の甘利氏までが「55%」と言っているのですから、当初の目標7割から明らかにハードルを下げましたねえ・・・。

やはり世論調査で「党員票6割」と出たことによって、弱気になったように思いますね。

となると、石破茂氏が党員票4割超えもあり得るんじゃないでしょうか。

沖縄知事選の情勢によって、石破氏が獲得する票も激変するかもしれませんね。

今回は、きょう告示される沖縄県知事選、また公明議員がネットでデマ動画を拡散した事などについて話しています。

きょうから沖縄県知事選が始まるだけに、デマの類がいっそう激しくなる事が予想されますね。 

ネットでもデマを見つけたりなど、できる事はたくさんあると思います。 

「ネット選挙」時代になっているだけに、デマを流す側はネットを主戦場と見ているようにも思います。   それに負けない、跳ね返して攻勢をかけていくだけの力も必要なのではないかと・・・。

          Quem é Ciro Gomes? Jornalista prova que é o candidato mais mentiroso da história (Veja o Vídeo)      Cache   Translate Page      

O que Ciro Gomes fala, não se sustenta. Sua deficiência de caráter é assombrosa.

Além disso, Ciro já demonstrou que é péssimo quando a questão é ‘trabalho’. A análise de sua atuação como deputado federal é um claro exemplo.



Ciro é apenas bom de ‘gogó’, mais nada. Os dados descritos na sequência são do Portal de Transparência da Câmara dos Deputados. Vejamos:

Nos quatro anos em que foi deputado federal pelo PSB, Ciro não apresentou um único projeto de lei ou proposta de emenda constitucional. Nenhum, Zero. Faltou a quase metade das sessões em plenário e praticamente ignorou as reuniões das comissões.



Por outro lado, por duas vezes o nome do então parlamentar foi associado ao escândalo denominado “farra das passagens”, um esquema de uso irregular de verba pública para custear voos de parlamentares, familiares e amigos para o Brasil e o exterior.

Ciro registrou presença em apenas 224 (54,4%) das 412 sessões destinadas a votação.

Em quatro anos, Ciro integrou duas comissões permanentes, só uma como titular, a de Constituição e Justiça (CCJ). Também atuou em três colegiados especiais e um grupo de trabalho. Mais faltou do que compareceu. Registrou presença em 111 reuniões (27,8%) e acumulou 275 faltas não justificadas (68,9%).

Ciro, pelo visto, é ruim de trabalho e tem séria deficiência de caráter.

O vídeo abaixo não deixa dúvidas.

          US Fed sees trade cutbacks, more rate hikes; US PPI falls; EU factory production falls; euro as reserve currency; China pumps in liquidity; UST 10yr at 2.98%; oil and gold up sharply; NZ$1 = 65.6 USc; TWI-5 = 69.4      Cache   Translate Page      

Here's our summary of key events overnight that affect New Zealand, with news oil prices are up sharply today.

But first, in its latest Beige Book review of economic conditions around the country, the American Fed reports businesses have scaled back or postponed investments due to concerns about international trade tensions. Overall, this survey sees the American economy expanding at a "moderate pace".

And the Fed is continuing to signal that rate hikes, even if gradual, will continue for the next few years. Pointedly they say that this will be the case even if their rate curve inverts. (On that, they say this time is different.)

American producer prices fell in August from July is a surprise shift lower. This was the first month-on-month drop in about 18 months. And it happened for services. Overall, it means that year-on-year, producer prices are +2.8% higher and a big reduction in annual growth from July when they were +3.3% higher.

Also shifting lower are American mortgage applications. They fell in August, and they are still falling in September and by larger levels than analysts were expecting.

EU industrial production also fell in July, and that slippage has been cumulative so that year-on-year levels are now lower.

But the president of the EU is still sounding positive. In his State of the Union address earlier today he called for the euro to be new dominant global reserve currency, saying the US is abrogating its international responsibilities and the EU is ready to step up.

On the trade front, Canada's leaders are huddling trying to figure out their response to a recalcitrant US position on NAFTA. The Mexicans say they are prepared to go it alone, and the Americans say they are reaching out to China in "one last attempt" before new higher and broader tariffs are imposed.

In China, their central bank is back injecting money directly into their economy, supposedly to cover a short liquidity strain while tax payments are due, but more likely as part of an overall campaign to shore up lending and demand, as they try to keep the adjustment hurt from surfacing.

Today, the UST 10yr yield is lower at 2.96%, a -2 bps dip in a day. However, their 2-10 curve is tighter at just +21 bps. The Aussie Govt 10yr is at 2.59% (up +1 bp), the China Govt 10yr is at 3.70% and also up +1 bp, while the NZ Govt 10 yr is at 2.62%, up +2 bps.

Gold is rising today, up a chunky +US12 at US$1,208/oz in New York.

US oil prices are up sharply for a second day in a row and now just over US$70/bbl. The Brent benchmark is also higher, now just on US$80/bbl. These are big, fast rises brought about by a sharp fall in US crude inventories, the Iran sanctions, the expected impact from the US hurricane, and the growing fears a big typhoon will hit Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the Philippines.

The Kiwi dollar is starting today firmer at 65.6 USc. On the cross rates we are at 91.5 AUc, and at 56.4 euro cents. That puts the TWI-5 at 69.4.

Bitcoin is marginally firmer at US$6,280. Also this. This price is tracked in the currency charts below.

          California Christian School Alleged to Be Conversion Therapy Nightmare      Cache   Translate Page      
Youth, LGBT youth, California, Education

Women have come forward saying they received severe punishments at River View Christian Academy for even discussing being gay. 

YouthLGBT youthCaliforniaEducationteenrescue750x422.jpgAriel Sobel

Several students who attended River View Christian Academy, a boarding school for troubled teens in Temecula, Calif., say they were punished for coming out as gay an bisexual, reports Buzzfeed News. The punishments included being forbidden to have physical contact with anyone for months at a time, running laps, and other humiliating practices like forcing them to exclusively eat peanut butter sandwiches for weeks.

Emilie Bachrach, who attended River View from August 2005 to March 2007, said she was strip-searched upon arrival and barred from conversing with anyone for her first week. Her 40 classmates were not allowed to speak or look at her in the institution's attempt to use the Bible to help troubled teen girls, she said.

When Bachrach, then 15, befriended 17-year-old Rosemary Donahue, staff forbid the two to interact, claiming their relationship was "preventing our progress in the program," Donahue said. If they spoke to or looked at each other, they were penalized in a point system that awarded students privileges, including graduation. 

"I didn't come out as queer for 10 years because of it," Bachrach told Buzzfeed News. Another student, who was not identified by name in the article, was placed on a similar "no touch" regimen and said she was told "flesh would burn off my skin repeatedly for eternity in hell because I was gay." After eight months of no physical contact with anyone, she said, she shrieked the first few times she was hugged after coming home from River View.

Despite the accusations that they use alarming methods, schools like River View are barely regulated.

"Whether they're straight, gay, it doesn't matter — these programs use the same methodologies on straight kids who are rebellious," Jodi Hobbs, who runs Survivors of Institutional Abuse, a group that advocates from the alumni of these troubled teens programs, told Buzzfeed News. 

In response to such programs, Democratic State Sen. Ricardo Lara sponsored legislation to enhance state oversight of troubled teen institutions. Lara was inspired by meeting with River View survivor Rebecca Lopez, who identifies as gay and was sent to the facility in 2011, when she was 14.

At River View, Lopez said, she spent months forbidden to have any physical contact in the facility's attempt to keep her from being gay. She told Buzzfeed News that seven years later still she flinches when someone touches her because she has been conditioned to feel she's “doing something wrong.”

"This was another attempt to skirt around the conversion therapy law," she said.

California bans troubled teen facilities from acting as conversion therapy camps. However, it's unclear yet if Lara's legislation, which has become law, will apply to so-called alternative boarding schools like River View.

River View confirmed it has no licensed teachers, nurses, or psychiatrists or therapists on payroll in a phone interview with Buzzfeed News. Even its medical manager has no medical education beyond basic first aid training.

Although the state has a law that obligates staff to report to authorities when a student says they've experienced physical or sexual abuse, eight students have come forward and claimed that River View staff failed to do so.

River View founder Phil Ludwig has cast doubt on students' claims in the past. "Unfortunately, when you're doing a program like this with kids, we know what they really are doing and it's manipulation, but the laws don't back us up," he said on his radio show in 2016.

He told Buzzfeed News there has never been an official accusation of misconduct on the part of the River View staff, and he denied that the school practices conversion therapy, although he did acknowledge he believes being gay is wrong.

          London’s Super Sewer      Cache   Translate Page      

Many people say that Londoners are full of it.  This may or may not be true but there is one certainty – when they let it go (as it were) it has to go somewhere.  In Victorian days the smell from the river became so pungent that our Members of Parliament couldn’t stand the stench (one might, perhaps, argue there was a little yin-yang going on there).

It was time for change then and it's time for change now. The folks at Thames Tideway have just released the video above.  In it, real Londoners talk about the new ‘super sewer’ that is being built below the streets of England’s capital city.  It is costing a huge £4.2 billion from the start of the project in 2014 to its end in 2023. That's quite a while.  Yet Rome was not built in a day, as they say, and – for sure – a city the size of London needs serious stuff going on underneath in order for day to day life to carry on pong-free up top.

This is, then, a huge feat of engineering which is needed because although the Victorians solved the problem back in the 1850s, times and populations change.  Where we think they may have solved the problem permanently, there are still huge issues. Even now, the Thames still needs clearing up and raw sewage is going in to river at (what you might think is) an alarming rate (and you would be right).  Each year 8 billion toilet flushes go straight in to the Thames.

Big issues lead to big solutions. The project is vast – anything that takes almost a decade will be by sheer definition.  Yet we can all get our heads around the whole thing with some interesting visuals and a narration to accompany them by contemporary denizens of Hackney, Southwark and the Southbank.

So if you live in London and have noticed building sites pooping, sorry, popping up along the river without any tall buildings to accompany them, then you can probably assume that the real work is going on underground.  Thames Tideway (perhaps should be Tide-away) are going to make sure, with this massive investment, that The Great Stink of 1858 does not get a sequel in the twenty first century.  Sequels are never as good as the original, anyway, but in this case it’s one we really don’t want at any cost...

Take a look at the video above.  The scale is epic but it reflects a vision for a city which will be with us in five years.

          El Museo Cristina García Rodero abre sus puertas en Puertollano para homenajear a la gran fotógrafa de esta ciudad manchega      Cache   Translate Page      

Cristina Garcia Rodero

Esta tarde se inaugura el que será el segundo museo en España dedicado a un fotógrafo (tras el de Pérez Siquier), en este caso a la gran Cristina García Rodero, en la localidad que la vio nacer. En concreto, se ubica en las instalaciones del Museo Municipal de Puertollano (Ciudad Real) y albergará en principio más de 300 obras, de las cuales dos terceras partes serán de la fotógrafa homenajeada.

En la inauguración se realizará la apertura de la sala permanente, que mostrará una colección de fotos de la artista (con obras adquiridas por el Ayuntamiento junto a otras fotografías de distintas series donadas por coleccionistas privados y la propia García Rodero) y además la exposición temporal ‘Rituales de Haití’ compuesta de 185 imágenes. La experiencia del visitante se completará con otras salas dedicadas a distintos artistas, que en principio contará con el trabajo ‘La huella de la mirada. Fotografía y sociedad en Castilla-La Mancha 1839-1936’ del historiador Publio López Mondéjar.

Como era de esperar, la inauguración contará con la presencia de la Premio Nacional de Fotografía que también fue la primera española en entrar en la Agencia Magnum, quien ha colaborado con el ayuntamiento de Puertollano para acondicionar el espacio que alberga su museo con la idea de que se convierta en un reclamo cultural de primer orden.

          A 10 años de la muerte de Françoise Demulder, la primera mujer que ganó un World Press Photo      Cache   Translate Page      

Francoise

El 4 de septiembre de 2008 moría Françoise Demulder, una de las mejores fotógrafas francesas, víctima de un cáncer. Han pasado 10 años desde entonces y su figura se recuerda estos días. Ella es la autora de una de las fotografías más estremecedoras de la guerra del Líbano en 1977 y de algunos de los retratos más significativos de los líderes políticos. Es momento de recordar a Françoise Demulder.

Françoise Demulder nació en París en 1947. Aunque su vida parecía que iba a ser tranquila en Francia, ella apostó por la lucha contra la guerra y a favor de la justicia y la libertad. Estudiante de filosofía y con una pequeña carrera de modelo, decidió ir con un billete solo de vuelta a Vietnam a principio de los 70 con su entonces pareja, el fotógrafo Yves Billy. No había nada previsto en ese viaje que terminó marcando su vida.

La guerra de Vietnam empezó en 1955. Duraría hasta 1975 cuando los últimos norteamericanos fueron expulsados del país, algo que solo Françoise Demulder sería capaz de fotografiar. Pero no nos adelantemos y vamos a ver qué cambió en la cabeza de nuestra fotógrafa para terminar convirtiéndose en una de las fotógrafas de guerra más importantes del siglo XX, aunque su nombre hoy no sea recordado.

Cómo se convirtió en fotógrafa de guerra

En aquel viaje a Vietnam todo cambió en su cabeza. O quizás solo encontró la excusa perfecta para convertirse en lo que fue. Para buscarse la vida y poder conocer más a fondo la realidad de un país envuelto en una guerra política encontró una solución: hacer fotografías para venderlas luego a Associated Press por 20$. Fue la guerra de la imagen. La más vista, la más retransmitida... y la que provocó que los fotoperiodistas lo tuvieran cada vez más complicado en las sucesivas confrontaciones. Se dieron cuenta de que la imagen puede terminar lo que los políticos empiezan.

Pero volvamos a Françoise Demulder. Se dio cuenta de lo que podía hacer con una cámara entre las manos. Así que empezó a profundizar en el arte de la fotografía en la mejor escuela del mundo, la cruda realidad. Se especializó en lo que pedía la sociedad en aquel momento cuando estabas en Vietnam y querías acabar con la realidad, la fotografía de guerra. Y con su carisma pudo moverse por todo el país con ayuda del ejército norteamericano, que entonces no dudaba en ayudar a la prensa gráfica.

Así aprendió los rudimentos de uno de los trabajos más duros que existen dentro de la fotografía. Quizás no es la mejor forma pero a algunas personas les basta con la práctica. Quizás tardaba más en conseguir el disparo pero en esta profesión está visto que la intuición funciona. Desde luego no a todo el mundo, pero a Françoise Demulder le sirvió.

De hecho cuando todos los extranjeros tuvieron que salir del país ante la inminente victoria, ella fotografió, el 30 de abril de 1975, la simbólica llegada de los tanques del Vietcong a Saigon. Solo hubo un profesional en aquel momento y fue ella. Allí empezó su fulgurante carrera, con el apodo de Fifi, que según cuentan las crónicas le puso el mismísimo Arafat. Una de sus frases más conocidas es:

Odio la guerra pero me siento obligada a documentar que el inocente es siempre el que sufre, mientras que el poderoso se vuelve más y más rico.

Ganadora del premio World Press Photo 1977

A finales de los años 70 las mujeres se hicieron un hueco en la profesión: la propia Françoise Demulder, Catherine Leroy y Christine Spengler empezaron a llamar la atención a las agencias por la calidad de sus fotografías. Entonces se empezó a apostar por la calidad de la mirada. No importaba quién estaba detrás de la cámara.

De Vietnam fue a todos los países de Asia sudoriental y Medio Oriente. Cubrió eventos en Cuba, Pakistán y Etiopía... La fotografía que le dio fama internacional la hizo en 1976 y le dieron el prestigioso premio en 1977. A lo más jóvenes seguro que les suenan las guerras en Oriente Próximo. Conflictos que llevan más de lo que nos gustaría pensar.

Françoise Demulder estaba en Beirut, documentando el principio de la guerra civil libanesa. En la fotografía observamos a una mujer palestina suplicando a un soldado de las Falanges Libanesas armado. El fondo es sobrecogedor y somos incapaces de imaginar un buen final para los que salen. El pueblo siempre como víctima de las guerras por peleas políticas y de religión. Ese disparo certero, más justo que el que pueda conseguir cualquier pistola, llamó la atención del jurado del concurso más prestigioso de fotoperiodismo.

Francoiseiii Página de la web del WPP

Se convirtió en la primera mujer en ganar semejante premio. Aunque nunca fue reconocida como una de las grandes, como si sucede con Christine Spengler, por poner un ejemplo, marcó el camino para abrir la profesión y demostrar que solo importa la mirada:

Cuando Françoise Demulder vino a Ámsterdam para recibir su premio a la Foto Mundial de Prensa del Año en 1977, le dijo al periódico holandés Het Vrije Volk que había entrado en la zona cristiana el día que la Falange decidió "limpiar" el barrio de Karantina. Los cristianos iban de casa en casa en el barrio palestino. Le dispararon a todos los que estaban allí. Había 350 civiles que huyeron de sus casas llorando. Los palestinos salieron con banderas blancas en sus rifles. Pero los falangistas seguían disparando, sin importar a quién golpeaban. Nunca antes había experimentado un odio tan fanático". Según Demulder, solo la niña y su hijo en el fondo de la imagen sobrevivieron a la masacre.

Françoise Demulder murió en 2008, después de cinco años de enfermedad en los que llegó a perder la movilidad de sus piernas. Llegó a salir en la novela 'A walking guide' de Alan Cowell e inspiró a Michael Alan Lerner para el personaje de la fotoperiodista de 'Deadlines'(2004). El día de su muerte la ministra Cultura de Francia señaló que Francia había perdido 'a una mujer notable, una gran fotógrafa y una reportera de guerra de un coraje excepcional. artista y testigo de nuestros tiempos'.

          The Real Reason for the ‘Anti-Semite’ Campaign Against Jeremy Corbyn      Cache   Translate Page      
Panic drives the smear attack against Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn whose background as a radical socialist, not his criticism of Israel and support for the Palestine, threatens the British establishment’s hold on power, argues Alexander Mercouris.
By Alexander Mercouris
in London
Special to Consortium News
&amp;lt;img class=”alignleft wp-image-27578″ src=”https://consortiumnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/alexander_mercouris-864x400_c-1-150×150.jpg&#8221; alt=”” width=”90″ height=”90″ /&amp;gt;Any discussion of the current “anti-Semitism crisis” in the British Labour Party needs to start with an understanding that there is no “anti-semitism crisis” in the British Labour Party, or in Britain.
Anti-Semitism did once have a place in British society. By way of example, readers of Agatha Christie stories written before World War II will come across stock anti-Semitic representations of Jewish characters. As recently as the 1970s, I can remember what would today be considered Semitic stereotypes being commonly used to represent Jewish people in many of the unfunny comedy shows broadcast by British television in that period, including some the BBC broadcast.
Racist stereotyping of this sort was commonplace in Britain right up to the 1970s, and was certainly not exclusive to Jews, as Irish people, black people and people from the Indian subcontinent well recall. Some still persists today, but by and large racial stereotyping is socially unacceptable, except (worryingly) with respect to Russians.
By comparison with other European countries, anti-Semitism in Britain has, however, not been a major phenomenon in modern British society and recent British history. There has been no official persecution of Jews in Britain since they were allowed to resettle in England by Oliver Cromwell in the 1650s, while the attempt by Oswald Moseley’s British Union of Fascists to stir up political anti-Semitism in the 1930s provoked fierce resistance.
Jewish people now play a full and active role in British life, and this happens without notice or comment.
As for the formal institutions of Britain’s Jewish community, these form an integral part of British life. The chief rabbi has enjoyed a measure of recognition as the nominal leader of the British Jewish community from the British state ever since the 1870s.  Since the 1980s, by convention, the chief rabbi has been admitted to the British Parliament as a peer of the House of Lords, though the present chief rabbi, Ephraim Mirvis, has not yet been so admitted. The British Jewish community’s major institution—the Board of Deputies of British Jews—has had a continuous existence since the 1760s.
Though there are anti-Semites in Britain as there are everywhere else, they are very much a minor and ugly fringe, and moreover a generally despised and disliked one, with no influence or traction in British politics or in British life.
Despite lurid claims to the contrary, actual cases of anti-Semitic violence and property damage in Britain are relatively few, and certainly appear to be less than other types of racial violence.
Indeed, Jewish people today are so much an integral part of British society and of British life that I for one question whether it is even accurate to speak of a distinct “Jewish establishment” among British Jews. Rather, it seems to me that it would be more accurate to say that there are some prominent British Jews and some prominent British Jewish institutions—such as the chief rabbi and the Board of Deputies of British Jews—which today form an integral part of the larger British establishment, whose general perspectives and interests they share.
Which brings me to the present “anti-Semitism” campaign against Jeremy Corbyn.
The Left-Wing, Anti-Imperialist Labour Tradition
The British Labour Party was formed in 1900 before World War I, and if there has been one political movement in Britain that has stood rock solid against all manifestations of anti-Semitism in British life (perhaps more than any other group), it is the British Labour Party, and first and foremost its left wing.
This is consistent with the traditional stance of the left wing of the British Labour Party, which can be broadly defined as anti-racist, anti-fascist, and, above all, anti-imperialist. The latter has been important in a country like Britain—historically the preeminent imperialist power—where imperialism was justified in racist terms. British left-wing anti-imperialists, who are mostly drawn from the working class (a fact which gave British anti-imperialism a strong class-conflict character) strongly were predisposed to be anti-racist.
Not surprisingly, British Labour left-wing anti-racism extended to staunch opposition to anti-Semitism, which is, of course, the reason why so many British Jews were drawn to the Labour Party in the first place.
The key point to understand about Corbyn is that it is from within this left-wing, anti-imperialist Labour tradition that he comes. His parents after all first met each other in the 1930s attending a rally in support of the Spanish Republic at the time of the Spanish Civil War. He has been loyal to the traditions of the Labour Party’s anti-imperialist left ever since he began his career in politics, as his long record of opposition to all the West’s interventionist wars shows. Needless to say, that includes strong and consistent anti-racism and the opposition to anti-Semitism which goes with it. Strikingly, Corbyn’s acceptance speech following his election as Labour leader included a declaration of support for refugees.
To insinuate that Corbyn is an anti-Semite—as is increasingly happening—and to insinuate that the left wing of the Labour Party to which he belongs is riddled with anti-Semitism and poses an “existential threat to British Jews” (as several of the British Jewish community’s newspapers have alleged) is more than just absurd. It stands reality on its head. Corbyn is not an anti-Semite. Anti-Semitism, on the contrary, is what he always has defined himself against, and to claim otherwise is dishonest and even surreal.
Corbyn’s well-known support for the Palestinian people’s struggle does not contradict his opposition to anti-Semitism. Rather, it is the product of his consistent anti-imperialism, making Corbyn’s support for the Palestinians and his opposition to anti-Semitism consistent.
All this is well understood by those who are conducting the anti-Semitism campaign against Corbyn within the Labour Party and outside it. Corbyn has been a fixture of British political life ever since he was first elected a member of Parliament in 1983. The British establishment—including those members of the British establishment who are Jewish—know him well, and they know well what his actual beliefs are. It is not credible that they believe him to be an anti-Semite, or that they think that the left wing of the British Labour Party, which supports him, is riddled with anti-Semitism.
The Push to Stop Corbyn
The essential mendacity of the whole anti-Semitism campaign and the true motives behind it is shown by the exceptionally narrow frame of reference in which it is being conducted. It is universally acknowledged that the allegations of anti-Semitism being made against Corbyn and some of his supporters stem from Corbyn’s longstanding support for the Palestinian people’s struggle and his equally longstanding criticisms of Israel’s response to that struggle. As’ad AbuKhalil has discussed this aspect of the affair for Consortium News with great thoroughness and detail.
It is worth pointing out, however, that the criticisms being made against Corbyn barely touch on the Palestinian question at all. Anyone looking at these criticisms for a discussion of the Palestinian issue, even one from a position sympathetic to Israel and hostile to the Palestinians, will fail to find it.
The Palestinian struggle, the plight of the Palestinian people, the whole history of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the current policies both of Israel and of the Western governments which support it, are barely mentioned. When Palestinians do get mentioned at all, it is purely as terrorists. The entire campaign is being conducted as if Corbyn and those who support him hate Zionism and Israel and therefore allJews.
It is, of course, impossible that those who are conducting the campaign against Corbyn are any more ignorant of the basic facts of the Palestinian struggle and of the Arab-Israeli conflict than they are ignorant of Corbyn’s actual beliefs. If they are not mentioning these facts, it is not because they are ignorant of them. It is because they choose not to mention them.

In other words, the campaign against Corbyn has very little to do with the situation in the Middle East. I say this, though I have no doubt that the Israeli embassy is playing an active role in the campaign, a fact which is apparently freely admitted within Israel itself, though not in Britain.
However, it is a mistake to see the campaign against Corbyn as principally Israeli inspired. If it were, I would expect those conducting it to say far more about the situation in the Middle East than they do. Nor, in my opinion, is the campaign exclusively or even primarily the work of British Jews. As it happens, the Jewish community in Britain is far from united behind the campaign, with many British Jews expressing doubts or even outright opposition to it.
Instead, the campaign should be seen for what it is: the latest in a long series of attacks by the British establishment against Corbyn, the one British politician who more than any other embodies the threat to the current status quo and to the British establishment’s hold on power.
These attacks have at various times sought to portray Corbyn as a Communist, a Russian agent, a terrorist sympathizer and a traitor. Adding a charge of anti-Semitism to this catalogue is an obvious further step, and given Corbyn’s well-known advocacy of Palestinian rights an easy one. The only surprise is that it has not happened before.
That the anti-Semitism campaign is the latest in a long series of establishment attacks on Corbyn, which extend all the way back to his election as Labour’s leader, is shown by the sheer breadth of the campaign. The parliamentary Labour Party, the entire Conservative Party and the media (including the BBC and the supposedly left-wing Guardian newspaper) have all embraced it. Certainly, it extends far beyond those members of Britain’s Jewish community who form part of the greater British establishment and who initially spearheaded it. As it happens, the great majority of British politicians and commentators who have joined in the campaign are non-Jews.
A New Political Dynamic
As for the campaign’s greater vehemence by comparison with earlier campaigns, that is the product of the changed political dynamic in Britain since the June 2017 general election.
Before that election, the British establishment did not take Corbyn seriously, since it assumed that the British electorate would reject him in any election which he fought. The horrifying realization following the June 2017 election that the opposite is the case has—not surprisingly—caused panic and has led to the establishment pulling out all the stops. That explains not just the greater vehemence of this campaign but why it has persisted for so long.
In other words, what is driving the campaign is not some overarching loyalty on the part of British Jews to Israel or a belief that Corbyn is an anti-Semite. Rather, it is British establishment panic. As Britain’s Conservative government disintegrates, Corbyn stands poised to become Britain’s next prime minister. That terrifying prospect—of a radical socialist in 10, Downing Street—is one which must be averted at all costs. That is the reason for the anti-Semitism campaign we have been witnessing, and thus all the other campaigns against Corbyn we have witnessed, of which there are certainly more to come.
While the causes of the anti-Semitism campaign are mainly domestic, there is a wide consensus among Corbyn’s supporters that he has not handled his response to the campaign well. The general opinion—that he has been far too accommodating to his critics—has been forcefully argued in Consortium News by Jonathan Cook.
Corbyn himself has conceded too much ground on anti-semitism. As a lifelong anti-racism campaigner, the accusations of anti-semitism have clearly pained him. He has tried to placate rather than defy the smearers. He has tried to maintain unity with people who have no interest in finding common ground with him.
And as he has lost all sense of how to respond in good faith to allegations made in bad faith, he has begun committing the cardinal sin of sounding and looking evasive – just as those who deployed the anti-semitism charge hoped. It was his honesty, plain-speaking and compassion that won him the leadership and the love of ordinary members. Unless he can regain the political and spiritual confidence that underpinned those qualities, he risks haemorrhaging support.
This widespread view that Corbyn has been accommodating to people who seek only his destruction has even produced some curious examples of drafts of “speeches” written for him by some of his sympathizers setting out the sort of things which they think he should say.
While I have considerable sympathy for this view, I think it is only fair to add that Corbyn happens to be one of the most polite and diffident personalities in British politics. The contrast with, say, Donald Trump in the United States, could not be greater. It is not in Corbyn’s nature to respond to his critics with the same forcefulness that they extend to him. While this makes Corbyn an indifferent orator and blunts his impact in debates in the House of Commons, his politeness and diffidence is an integral part of his appeal. To call on him to act differently is to call for a different man, with no guarantee that that man would command anything remotely approaching the level of support that Corbyn has.
Is the Campaign Working?
It is important to stress this point because as of the time of writing it is far from clear to me that—contrary to what Jonathan Cook fears—this latest campaign against Corbyn is succeeding.
The poll numbers barely have shifted, with Conservative and Labour both polling around 40 percent of the vote since the June 2017 general election, and most opinion polls put Labour ahead. Though the anti-Semitism campaign may have lost Labour some Jewish votes in places like the London district of Barnet, the generality of the British voters seem indifferent and unimpressed by the whole affair.
I suspect that the truth is that Corbyn has been around in British politics for so long that the British electorate long ago formed its view of him. Knowing Corbyn as well as they do—as well as the left-wing tradition from which he comes—the vast majority of British center-left voters who make up Corbyn’s electoral base find the whole idea that he is an anti-Semite just too fantastic to take seriously. Besides the fact that the anti-Semitism campaign is merely the latest in a series of campaigns against Corbyn launched from the moment he became Labour’s leader makes the true motives of his critics in the end altogether too obvious.

Cook has expressed the fear that if the Labour Party adopts the four additional working examples of anti-Semitism drafted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)—which it has hitherto resisted doing because of the way they limit criticism of Israel—that will make future criticism of Israel by Corbyn and by other members of the Labour Party all but impossible, and will open the way to a purge of Palestinian sympathizers within the Labour Party. [Editor’s note: The Labour Party altered its anti-Semitism definition on Sept. 4 at its National Executive Committee meeting and adopted the four additional working examples of anti-Semitism drafted by the IHRA.]
Similar concerns have been expressed by Norman Finkelstein, who sees the whole attempt to impose any sort of definition of anti-Semitism on the Labour Party as an attack on the party’s traditions and on free speech.
These concerns are far from groundless. On the contrary, there is no doubt that silencing criticism of Israel is very much a part of the agenda of some of the people behind the campaign, with the British establishment (not just its Jewish part) united in support of Israel in the same way as are the political establishments of all the other Western countries. Consider, for example, this extraordinary article by Andrew Feldmanin The Evening Standard, a newspaper edited by former Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron’s friend and former Chancellor George Osborne, which contains this passage:
Anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism are the same thing. They are two sides of the same coin. Anti-Zionism is the belief that the state of Israel should not exist. That it should be dismantled. This is not the same as saying, quite legitimately, that you disagree with the policies of the current or any other Israeli government; or calling for the reversal of the settlement programme in the West Bank; or demanding a return to earlier borders and the creation of a two-state solution.
Some historical context is important here. Two thousand years ago, at the end of a long and bloody revolt, the Temple was destroyed and the Jewish people were dispersed far and wide, across the Roman Empire and beyond. They settled in many places. Some made them welcome for a time. Others less so. Jewish people lived in a constant state of trepidation. Periods of peace and prosperity punctuated by pogroms, inquisition and expulsion.
In Europe, the Holocaust was the crescendo of centuries of rumbling antipathy. Jews sought to escape the horror but the numbers who found refuge were pathetically small. Even the UK only accepted 70,000 Jewish refugees before the Second World War and 10,000 during it.
Quite simply, there was nowhere for them to go, so six million people perished out of a total global Jewish population of 17 million.
Finally, after this destruction, the world decided that enough was enough. The Jewish people needed their own place to go when things went wrong. And the ancient homeland was chosen. It was to be shared with the Palestinians on lines established by a United Nations resolution in 1948.
This was not the only work for the cartographers after the Second World War. The demise of empire, the calls for national determination and the need for pragmatic solutions brought about the creation of new states in Europe, Africa, the Indian subcontinent and elsewhere in the Middle East. Lines were drawn on maps. Sometimes they respected geographical, religious and tribal boundaries; sometimes they did not. Everyone was doing the best they could to make sense of the cataclysmic events of the previous decades.
