          Autonomous glider observations of specific conductance spatial variability in western Lake Superior      Cache   Translate Page      
Slocum electric gliders are autonomous submersibles equipped with sensors that collect water quality data at fine spatial and temporal scales. Widely used in ocean studies, their use in freshwater systems is still relatively new, and presents a unique opportunity for characterizing processes in large lakes. The University of Minnesota Duluth Large Lakes Observatory and the US EPA Mid-Continent Ecology Laboratory have completed over 50 glider deployments since 2011, in four of the Great Lakes and Lake Tahoe, providing a rich dataset of observations for analysis. We use a multiyear subset of the high resolution glider data to investigate the spatial and temporal variability of specific conductance in Lake Superior’s western arm, including the Apostle Islands, in terms of landscape variability and individual tributary influences.

          China’s Human Rights Abuses Against Uighurs in Xinjiang      Cache   Translate Page      
During a 2013 trip to Kazakhstan, Xi Jinping announced the “Belt and Road Initiative” (BRI)—China’s ambitious plan to enhance its “friendship” with the rest of the world through expanded investments in infrastructure and trade. Xinjiang, a resource-rich autonomous region in Northwest China lying at the border of Kazakhstan and seven other central Asian countries, was to be a crucial economic artery for this new world-embracing plan. Five years later, Xinjiang looks nothing like Xi’s vision of an internationally cooperative, friendly China. Under the guise of “fighting terrorism,” China has created a large-scale program for the mass surveillance, incarceration and re-education of Xinjiang’s  Turkic-speaking Muslims, the Uighurs, as well as other minority groups. These actions clearly contravene China’s international commitments as well as its own domestic law—but it’s unclear what actions the…
          Binance to Make Listing Fees Transparent, Give Proceeds to Charity      Cache   Translate Page      
Binance charity

Binance, the largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume, said that it will make new cryptocurrency listing fees transparent and donate 100 percent of those fees to charity.

The exchange made the announcement today, October 8, 2018, in a blog post where it stated that a listing fee would now be more appropriately called a “donation.”

Listing fees have been a pain point for cryptocurrency projects. Projects depend on getting their coins listed on exchanges for liquidity. News of getting listed on a major exchange can cause a coin to spike in value overnight. Yet, many projects have complained of exorbitant listing fees.  

In April 2018, Bloomberg reported that according to Autonomous Research some crypto trading platforms were charging $1 million to $3 million to list a token — 10 times more than what a traditional exchange, like Nasdaq, demands for securities.  

Binance, which now handles most of its operations out of Malta, has been a target of many of those complaints. In August 2018, Christopher Franko, co-founder of Expanse, a fork of Ethereum, tweeted that Binance wanted to charge 400 bitcoin ($2.5 million) to list a coin. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao refuted the accusation. “We don't list shitcoins even if they pay 400 or 4,000 BTC,” he tweeted.

Now, according to Binance, cryptocurrency projects will be able to name their price. “Binance will not dictate a number, nor is there a minimum required listing fee,” the exchange said, adding that it won’t be swayed by larger bids either. “A large donation does not guarantee or in any way influence the outcome of our listing review process.”

Once the two parties reach an agreement, the exchange said it will disclose the fee via its charity arm Blockchain Charity Foundation. Binance launched the arm in Malta in July 2018 as a way to funnel some of its profits to philanthropic endeavors. The foundation is chaired by Helen Hai, a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Industrial Development Organization.

“Hope others will follow,” CZ tweeted earlier today, alluding to the announcement.

Binance was originally founded in Hong Kong in 2017. Within six months, it was already touted as one of the biggest crypto exchanges in the space. Its growth is largely due to its ability to onboard new coins quickly. The exchange currently has 387 crypto-to-crypto trading pairs.

          Russian Influence Rising in Balkans, Baltics, Central Europe      Cache   Translate Page      
A week before a crucial election, Bosnian Serb leader Milorad Dodik traveled to Russia for a Formula One race — not because he’s a big fan but for yet another meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.  Footage from the race in Sochi showed Putin wishing Dodik “great success” in the Bosnian election and the Serb presenting Putin with a Republika Srpska pin, the Serb-controlled autonomous region in Bosnia.  The video was a blatant display of Russia influence in one of Europe’s most sensitive regions — the fragile Balkans — where the West has sought to encourage reconciliation and reform after a brutal ethnic war in the 1990s.  The brief photo opportunity with Putin helped Dodik win the race to fill the Serb seat in Bosnia’s three-member presidency on Sunday, deepening the ethnic divisions that have held Bosnia back since its devastating 1992-1995 war. Dodik openly advocates having Serbs separate from the rest of Bosnia and has been sanctioned by the U.S. for his policies. But he has proven to be a key ally in Moscow’s efforts to undermine the Western policies of Balkan integration.  While Russian influence is the most obvious in the Balkans, an upsurge of populism in Central Europe has also played into Moscow’s hands, providing sympathetic political parties and politicians across the continent, including in European Union nations like Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic.   Pro-Russia forces also did well in another corner of Europe.  In Latvia, an opposition party favored by the country’s large ethnic Russian minority got the most votes Saturday in the Baltic nation’s parliamentary election, although the party is expected to run into difficulties in trying to form a coalition government.  Latvia’s Russian minority is a major domestic political force, accounting for about 25 percent of its nearly 2 million people, a legacy of nearly 50 years of Soviet occupation that ended in 1991. Dodik’s victory in Bosnia further strengthened Moscow’s foothold in the Western Balkans, since he can how block any strategic decision — if Putin says so. Russia staunchly opposes any more Balkan countries joining NATO. Western officials have expressed fear that Russia has used its historic Slavic and Orthodox Christian ties in the region to undermine Western policies of integration.  Sarajevo-based political analyst Adan Huskic said Moscow’s influence was also growing in the parts of Europe that don’t have those identity links.  What these countries have in common are “high levels of nepotism, corruption” so bonding more closely with Western democracies is “by nature, very difficult for them,” he said.  Russia’s strategic aim is not to assert authority over the Balkans but to “harness and magnify existing tensions,” the European Council on Foreign Relations said in a report.  “In Russian eyes, the EU’s approach toward the Western Balkans is neither serious nor systematic, and so offers Moscow opportunities to create leverage,” the report added. Russian allies in the Balkans have been actively sowing mistrust in Western democracies, presenting Washington and Brussels as enemies who want to strip nations of their identity and national pride by pushing for EU integration. Dodik is a perfect example. For him, the West and NATO are enemies while Russia is a friend full of respect for the Slavic “brethren.” Absorbed in own problems — the euro debt crisis, immigration or Britain’s impending Brexit departure — the EU for years has neglected the Balkans. Alarmed, some EU officials now fear that Balkans could plunge into renewed conflict unless it's quickly embraced by the 28-nation bloc.  “If such a complex European region gets an impression that we are not serious with the European perspective, we will experience, sooner rather than later, what we saw in the Balkans during the 1990s,” European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker recently said. Those fears are not groundless. Tensions between Serbia and its former province of Kosovo, which declared independence in 2008, have been on the rise despite efforts by the EU to hammer out a lasting solution between the two former war foes. Belgrade raised the combat readiness of its troops two weeks ago over Kosovo special police presence in its Serb-populated north. In Macedonia, U.S. and EU hopes for swift passage of a deal between Macedonia and Greece to change Macedonia’s name to North Macedonia so it can join NATO suffered a blow when a Sept. 30 referendum on the name saw low turnout. The vote result raised fears of instability in the country that was on the brink of a civil war in 2001.  U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis saw Russian influence behind some Macedonia and Greek protests against the move. “We do not want to see Russia doing (in Macedonia) what they have tried to do in so many other countries,” he said last month. Russia has denied meddling in any Balkan or Baltic country. But Russia's soft-power strategy has found fertile ground among Serbs, due to NATO’s bombings in 1999 that halted a bloody Serb crackdown on Kosovo and forced Serbs to pull out. In return for Russia’s support for Serbia’s claim over Kosovo, Serbia has been a faithful ally even though it formally pursues EU integration and uses millions in Western recovery funds. Two Russian military intelligence operatives operated from Serbia in 2016 when they tried to organize a coup in neighboring Montenegro to stop the former Russian ally from joining NATO. “We saw that referendum has not succeeded in Macedonia,” said Serbian analyst Bosko Jaksic. “We can see it now in Bosnia, where the Republika of Srpska became the bastion of the Russian interest. We saw it before in Montenegro, and we are seeing it in Serbia. This is helping Russians to invest the minimum and get nearly the maximum of their political influence.”

          Waarom miljoenen mensen luisteren naar hoe Isabel fluistert      Cache   Translate Page      

Isabel Meijering fluistert haar kijkers toe, dipt haar kwast in scheerschuim en borstelt haar haren: alles om met het geluid daarvan een ontspannen gevoel bij haar kijkers te veroorzaken. Ze is één van de grootste ASMR-YouTubers uit Nederland. Ze is blij dat de wetenschappers onderzoek gaan doen naar het fenomeen.

"ASMR is zo vaak belachelijk gemaakt, terwijl miljoenen mensen over de hele wereld er al jaren heel veel baat bij hebben", vertelt ze. "Mensen laten me bijvoorbeeld weten dat ze geholpen worden met slapeloosheid, depressies en angststoornissen. Dus ik hoop dat er snel bevestiging komt vanuit de wetenschap."

Waarom de één ASMR, Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, heeft en de ander niet, weet niemand. Wel is duidelijk dat mensen die het ervaren al van kleins af aan ontspannen raken van bepaalde geluiden en daar soms zelfs tintelingen door ervaren. Vaak weten ze dan nog niet dat meer mensen deze ervaring hebben en dat het ASMR heet.

De eerste keer dat Isabel het had, was toen ze op de basisschool van haar juf woorden moest oplezen. "Ze had zo'n rustgevende stem en gaf me heel veel aandacht", zegt ze. Ik was zó relaxt, je kon me echt opvegen." Pas een paar jaar geleden kwam ze er achter dat er online allerlei fluisterfilmpjes te vinden waren en besloot ze ze ook zelf te gaan maken.

Op YouTube is de afgelopen jaren heel veel geëxperimenteerd om erachter te komen welke geluiden precies het gevoel opwekken. En inmiddels is daar enige consensus over. "Mensen reageren het meest op gefluister of zachte spraak, dus dat doe ik ook heel veel. Maar bekende triggers zijn ook tikken of krassen op objecten, kreukelgeluidjes of watergeluidjes", zegt Isabel.

Daarnaast is persoonlijke aandacht een manier om het gevoel op te wekken, denk aan een dokter die rustig vraagt welke klachten je hebt. Om dat na te bootsen, verkleden ASMR-YouTubers zich tot dit soort personages om kijkers vervolgens zachtjes toe te spreken. En dat wordt door mensen die geen ASMR ervaren nog weleens op een heel andere manier opgevat.

"Als mannen een vrouw in dokterskleding zien die aan het fluisteren is, hebben zij een andere associatie. Daar kunnen ze vrij weinig aan doen", zegt Isabel. "Ik vind het vervelend, want ik wil niet geassocieerd worden met softporno. Hoewel ik zelf heel erg van de doktersvideo's houd, maak ik ze daarom steeds minder."

Dat mensen lacherig over de video's doen, begrijpt Isabel wel. "Het is heel intiem. Als ik naar mijn eigen video kijk met mensen om me heen, schaam ik me eerlijk gezegd ook een beetje. Dan denk ik: wat ben ik voor iets raars aan het doen? Maar het werkt alleen één op één, dus je moet het niet met een groep kijken en denken dat je tingles gaat krijgen."

Wat je wel moet doen om het te ervaren? "Als je echt ASMR een kans wil geven, moet je de lampen dimmen en in je eentje met oortjes in een hoofdtelefoon op op een comfortabele plek gaan zitten", raadt Isabel aan. "Dan heb je de grootste kans dat je ontspannen wordt of misschien zelfs de tintelingen ervaart."

          Tesla surges after analyst says he doesn't see it needing to raise more cash (TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page      

elon musk tesla

  • Tesla shares were up more than 4% Tuesday after Macquarie initiated coverage with a $430 price target — more than 60% above where shares were trading.
  • Analyst Maynard Um said Tesla is "uniquely positioned to emerge as the leader in vehicle ecosystem platforms" so long as it can clear its debt hurdle, and that the second half of this year is crucial.
  • He says Tesla won't need to raise more cash this year.
  • Not everyone on Wall Street agrees.
  • Watch Tesla trade in real time here.

Tesla shares are surging Tuesday after Macquarie jumped aboard the bullish bandwagon, saying the electric-car maker is "uniquely positioned to emerge as the leader in vehicle ecosystem platforms."

The firm initiated coverage with an "outperform" rating and $430 price target — more than 60% above where shares were trading Tuesday. 

Macquarie's note comes just after Tesla closed at its lowest level in more than one and a half years. Shares had plunged more than 35% since August 7, the day CEO Elon Musk tweeted that he had "funding secured" to take the carmaker private at $420 a share. 

"We believe the auto industry is on the precipice of a multi-decade transformation driven by disruptive innovation and technology — the same dynamic forces that transformed many other technology industries," analyst Maynard Um said in a note sent out to clients on Tuesday. 

"We believe those focused on the path to highly disruptive ecosystem platforms, including the necessary journey to electric & autonomous, will be the potential winners. We see Tesla as uniquely positioned given its lead in deep software platform integration into its electric vehicles and its position in autonomous with more than 8 million miles of real-world driving data per day."

But before it can get there, Um says Tesla must clear some very large hurdles — mainly the company's ability to repay its $11.5 billion of debt outstanding, which includes $920 million in convertible bonds that could become due if the stock price doesn't hit $360 by March 1 — and that the second half of 2018 will be a crucial period for the company. 

He says its health coming out of that period will be determined by four key factors:

  1. Vehicle production ramp. Tesla has said it can ramp up production of its Model 3 sedan to 7,000 per week by year end and 10,000 per week by the middle of next year. Um says his model bakes in an average of 5,400 per week in the fourth quarter. 
  2. End-market demand. The ending of lifetime supercharging could pull demand forward into the third quarter, Um says. He believes the coming reduction of tax credits in the US and the Netherlands could increase demand in the near term. 
  3. Zero-emissions vehicle credits [and/or 4. Raising cash]. Um says Tesla could bring in $634 million of revenue in the back half of 2018 by selling its surplus of zero-emission tax credits.  

"With a cash balance of $1.29 billion excluding customer deposits, our estimated free cash flow of $436.8 million through 1Q 2019, and over $1.2 billion in unused debt commitments, we believe the company should have enough cash to cover the aggregate debt coming due of $1.7 billion over the next three quarters ($189 million in Q3, $519 million in 4Q, and $1.02 billion in 1Q19)," Um concludes.

"While this would reduce the cash it has on hand, we believe this is enough to get Tesla over the hump to self-sustain without a need necessarily for an additional capital raise."

But not everyone agrees. Some analysts on Wall Street have been sounding the alarm on the need for more cash

Alexander Diaz-Matos, an analyst at the credit research firm Covenant Review, suggested last month that Tesla could pledge intellectual property, similar to what Ford did in 2006, in order to provide "meaningful liquidity in a crunch." 

And Morgan Stanley's Adam Jonas thinks the carmaker will raise $2.5 billion in the fourth quarter — even if it doesn't need the money — because it will be easier to do than when it's a dire necessity.

"We are increasingly of the view that the confluence of economic, competitive, regulatory, political, and technological forces may challenge Tesla’s status as a stand-alone entity," Jonas wrote. "Whether this results in a positive or negative outcome for existing shareholders vs. the current share price is much harder to determine at this time."

NOW WATCH: Ray Dalio says the economy looks like 1937 and a downturn is coming in about two years


          A ticking time bomb in China has global markets looking really shaky right now      Cache   Translate Page      

China tug of war

  • Global markets are jittery in recent days as fears about growth in China take hold.
  • "The larger the stimulus used by China to offset the trade war impact, the bigger will its deficit likely be," Tao Wang, UBS's chief China economist, said in a report on Tuesday
  • Markets are also worried about the ongoing Italian debt crisis, and the rising price of oil.

Trouble is brewing in global markets. Look no further than China. 

China's current account balance is down significantly from last year's 1.3% and will likely turn into a small deficit in 2019. If so that would be the first time in 24 years.

"The larger the stimulus used by China to offset the trade war impact, the bigger will its deficit likely be," UBS's Tao Wang, chief China economist, said in a report on Tuesday.

That may hurt confidence and hasten outflows, putting pressure on the nation's currency. 

"Although CNY depreciation can partially offset trade war impact, a large depreciation will likely hurt domestic confidence, trigger panic outflows and risk financial stability," UBS said. 

In the US stock market, Morgan Stanley says a bear market correction could arrive in 2019, sooner than markets currently expect.

After years of monetary stimulus and a short-term boost from the Trump administration’s tax cuts, more rate rises and lower bond prices will ultimately bring the US economy to a halt. But "before this occurs, it appears we will get a final spike higher," in yields, Morgan Stanley says.

The IMF lowered its outlook for the global economy, saying it will grow 3.7% this year, the same as in 2017 but down from the 3.9% it was forecasting for 2018 in July.

China has accepted its fate: Beijing is coming to terms with a lower rate of growth as the trade war with the US escalates, Barclay's chief China economist, Jian Chang, told CNBC. Tit-for-tat tariffs and reduction in Chinese export growth might trim between 0.5% to 1% off the Chinese economy, she said.

China's issues are leading major banks to question the strength of its stock market, with JPMorgan cutting its outlook on the country's equities from overweight to neutral last week.

The bank thinks the trade war brewing between Beijing and the Trump administration will have a negative impact on China's economy and, as a result, hit stocks.

"Total impact on China's GDP growth is 1.0%, if China does not take countermeasures," a team of JPMorgan analysts wrote.

Italy is also troublesome

Italy flag jets

Away from China and the USA, issues in Europe are also partly to blame for market jitters sweeping the globe. After a few months out of the limelight, Italy has sprung back to the forefront of investor concerns.

Last week, Italy submitted its spending plans for the next year to the EU. The budget came as a shock: The country said it planned to spend a whopping 2.4% more than it makes over the next three years.

This target risked breaching EU rules. Investors balked, sending the country's bond risk premium higher, and the euro tumbling.

Italy's longstanding high levels of debt are well-known, but previous governments had all at least paid lip service to the idea that they would reduce that debt. The current populist coalition is barely even doing that, and this is scaring people.

What's worse is that this week, research from Nomura suggested it could be decades before Italy can rein in its government debt to a level that meets European Union rules.

It's not just China and Italy that are worrying investors though.

Oil is also driving market concerns, with throttled output from major producers threatening to push prices even higher, and drag down total economic growth.

A combination of low output from OPEC producers coupled with looming sanctions from the USA against Iran has pushed up prices for oil in recent months, sending it to a more than four year high.

High oil prices tend to stunt economic growth, particularly in developing markets where increasing oil consumption is a key driver of rapid growth. The current situation, which sees Brent crude oil, the international benchmark, trading above $84 is particularly troubling, and was described as a "risky situation" by one of the most powerful people in the market this week.

"We should all see the risky situation, the oil markets are entering the red zone," Fatih Birol, the executive director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) said on Tuesday. Birol appealed for OPEC producers to increase output, warning that failing to do so will make for a "very, very challenging" end to the year.

In solo play if you don't improve your position on the Federation Track, the next round happen that a 4th space is occupied by dummy player action tiles (I choose the purple one and place near the federation track to remember me of this rule ). So I choose to keep the last 3 card that you can see above.1

So what to do first?

R1A1) I want to reclaim BUILD STRUCTURE so I play that on a green slot, and choose green 3, improve your position on the federation track 2 spaces) so I can obtain 1 credit.


R1A2) Then I play Lobbying Office (from my initial hand, see above) on red 2 slot, so I can activate build structure and gain 1 steelplast from the Federation Track.
I choose to build a tunnel with the Action Card, and a second tunnel with the red slot abilities, and LOBBYING OFFICE make me improve my position again on the federation track and gain 1 VP. Hurray!


Also gain 1 kelp building the second tunnel


These are my cards in hand now, for my last action I want to use Smuggling because I need credits
To build Desalinization Implants. I don't want to make a Desalinization Plants All-In strategy
Despite the special card that provides victory points for improved desalination plants is inviting
I only need to be sure to have enough credits produced in the first era production phase.


R3A3) As last action for the first round so I play Smuggling on yellow3 to gain also 2 science


Talking about Special Cards I think will go for Lab Science Federal Priority and Trade Surplus Steelplast.


End of Round I reset my position on the Federation Track, and I move all dummy action tiles from 1 position clockwise

Round2


R2A1) Black Ops Team on green1 to build 2 yellow buildings

R2A2) Black Ops Team on yellow1 to activate personal assistant and gain 1 steelplast plus 1steelplast and 1 science


R2A3) Smuggling on Red1 so I can draw 1 more card because of black ops team cards with infinity icon and build 2 labs



Round3

Have to discard 1 card. I need Scavenge the Seafloor because I need steelplast to build 1 city
So I keep autonomous systems, Scavenge the Seafloor, biomech construction crew.

I want to connect blue metropolitan that give me 3 kelp so for the first maintenance I'm good with kelp quantity

You will see how the game is a continuous make choices on which cards hold to have the resources needed for the actions on the Board. It's limitating
When you play you have to have focus and a very clear idea of what you want to Achieve.


Have the penalty to not move my marker on the federation track this round so have to place a 4th action tiles from the dummy player,
The fate wanted it to be just the action I needed, damn it
Will wait till next round


R3A1) Scavenge the seafloor on green3



R3A2) Smuggling on yellow1 to activate scavenge (and draw 1 card) and get so 2 steelplast and 2 kelps

I like artificial intelligence that make me upgrade 2 structures for 2 science instead of 3 (iconography is wrong, already corrected with the retail version)




R3A3) keep artificial, green and yellow biomech. Play biomech yellow on yellow 4 to build a city and 1 lab


Round4

R4A1) I play Biomech construction crew on green3


R4A2) Survey on Red2 to build a tunnel for the metropolis and build 1 kelp farm on the first city




R4A3) keep Trial Run and play it on yellow3. pay 3 science to upgrade yellows and 1 tunnel
(so I gain 1 steelplast and 1 credit from biomech construction crews)

usually if a card is in hand for a long time we made a wrong decision
I have to play artificial intelligence and autonomous systems. But now personnel agency is very interesting for a discount of 1 credit when play a Special Card. Host a conference make me upgrade a tunnel for 1 credit that I take back from biomech crew it's interesting too
I discard Autonomous systems…

Production Time! Number 1.


1 green, 2 upgraded yellows, 3 basic white, 1 tunnel and 1 upgraded tunnel
The leftmost tunnel do not produce
For a total of 2 kelps, 5 credits, 3 science, 1VP, 2 red biometter
I don't have production cards, no metropolitan that produce.
Pay 2 kelps for maintenance

For my game experience this is not a good production not have so much resources but let's see what's next.



Second Era

I take 3 cards from second era pile and have to discard 3 from my hand
Tough decision

I keep black market, personnel agency and artificial intelligence


Round5

R5A1) Now good time to play artificial intelligence on green2 to build a symbiotic city

R5A2) Black Market on yellow3 to upgrade 3 science lab, I need steelplast to build tunnels!



R5A3) motivation speech on Red2. so I can Activate Action Card Build Structure and improve federation track of 1
And build 2 tunnels, one is supercharge 1 kelp and 1 biomatter for a 3 times bonus production


Cards involved in this simple action a lot!



Round6


R6A1) discard construction windfall. Play personnel agency on green4. Upgrade a tunnel.
Black ops teams involved, see player board above.

A lot of new cards involved

Keep organize a conference, consumer goods research and visit investors, so I have 3 cards with 3 different colours


R6A2) Organize a conference on yellow4. to build a city and 1 kelp farm



R6A3) play Consumer Goods Research on yellow1, so I can activate organize a conference
Convert a science in steelplast with black market and get 1 steelplast and 1 science
No Federation Track improved this round



Round 7



Discard smuggling
Now I would like to improve 3 structures, at cost of 2 science because of artificial intelligence,
But only greens cards and with a second thought I already have all buildings upgraded except one farm.
I don't need to upgrade tunnels for victory points, better to focus on build to gain resources now.
Also I need 1 more kelp for maintenance. For now I play..

R7A1) Visit Investors on green4, to improve 1 tunnel (and get resources from biomech crews), draw2 cards.
But most important I already have 4 Action Cards so I decide to discard Scavenge The Seafloor
(and activate it while discard it)



R7A2) keep survey, rush job and construction windfall. Play survey on green3 to build a lab


R7A3)construction windfall on red1 to build a farm for free, 2 labs


Production Number 2!



4 kelp, 10 credits, 2 biomatter, 4 steelplast, 6 science, 10VP
I don't have production cards, no metropolitan that produce.
Pay 4 kelps for maintenance


Third Era


Three third era card

OUCH, I just realized that Special Card Space is 1 and I have to take 2 Special Cards,
My plane was to make a Lab and steelplast combo. I think I'm going to lose….
Next round dummy player will occupied that action space, so repeatable mission could be useful

OUCH OUCH my objective was to build 7 cities, till now I can't tell if I will accomplish it or not completely miss it …..
Too focused on writing and taking pictures for this session


Round 8



R8A1) I keep repeatable mission, smuggling and corruption
I play corruption on red4 to take federal priority science labs
(basically I transform 1 biomatter into 1 credit and 1 steelplast)


Discard coral tunnels I need smuggling for kelp to build cities

R8A2) play federal priority on green 2


R8A3) I play trial run on green 4 to draw 2 cards and upgrade a farm


Round 9

I keep repeatable mission, smuggling, federal grant.
With federal grant will build a symbiotic city, with smuggling a non-simbiotic one.
I choose the symbiotic also I already own a kelp



R9A1) I play federal grant on yellow3 to upgrade 3 labs



R9A2) I play technology negotiation on yellow2, apply effect from both biomech crews cards




R9A3) play repeatable mission on red2, to copy red4. apply several effects cards to build 2 tunnels (see down here)

this way the Federation Track is involved and will have no fourth action occupied, good.


Round10


Recap: All action cards

https://bgg.cc/image/4346425/uttermarcus
This is tricky. I have only 7 credits and need 7 to build a city, so I cannot play trade surplus
But first I need to play demonstration to activate 2 Action cards that give me 3 credits.
So I discard technology negotiation, that was a good card but have to stay on focus.

R10A1) Play demonstration on green2 to build a symbiotic city surcharge of 5 credits! For 5 VP.

But first I pay 1 credit to activate personal assistant and visit investors that give me a total of 3 credits.


OUCH I have no money to play Trade Surplus because I have to build the 7th city! Noooooooooooooo
Keep breath keep breath.


Nooo I don-t have even a third steelplast.
So now I need 1 steelplast or 1 credit


Let-s see…
So I can use Biomech construction Crew that give me 1 credit when I upgrade a tunnel. Let-s do it.


R10A2) play trade surplus on green4, pay 2 credits for the card and 1 science to upgrade a tunnel
So I receive 1 credit, 1 steelplast and my last action will be building the last city!




R10A3) I play Biomech Test on yellow1 to activate Organize A Conference action card
for improve a farm with 1 science . Also get a kelp and 1 steelplast from the action spazio




Sooo good. I-m not an expert, did only 8 plays but this was intense


Production number 3


Farms: 4 kelp and 4 VP; Desalinization plants: 3 credits and 2 biomatter ;
Science Lab: 8 steelplast and 6 science ; Tunnels: 10 credits and 7 VP
Symbiotic Cities: 8 VP ; Player board production: 1kelp
I don't have production cards, no metropolitan that produce.
Pay 6 kelps and 1 biomatter for maintenance
Total VP: 19VP


Final Score
I'm on 36VP on the Points Track


Metropolitan: 7 VP ; Cities: 22 VP ;

Score Cards: 6 labs = 12VP ; 9steelplast = 9 VP

Total credits included resources: 22credits = 5VP

Total ….. 36 + 29 + 21 + 5 = 91 NOOOOOOOO miss the goal for 9 points.
What a pity. But now I have an excuses to do another play


It's all about cards
The cards are balanced, they are many, they are beautiful, they come at the right time and I want to keep them all.
But I have to make choices, I can never have more than three in hand
Also I didn't touch the 1/2 credits cards, have no time!


It is limiting not being able to describe the whole process of thoughts while playing,
Hope you enjoy this, thank you for reading.

a black bar with the word RESIST in white text

One of the difficulties in resisting the Trump administration, the Republican Congressional majority, and Republican state legislatures (plus the occasional non-Republican who obliges us to resist their nonsense, too, like we don't have enough to worry about) is keeping on top of the sheer number of horrors, indignities, and normalization of the aggressively abnormal that they unleash every single day.

So here is a daily thread for all of us to share all the things that are going on, thus crowdsourcing a daily compendium of the onslaught of conservative erosion of our rights and our very democracy.

Stay engaged. Stay vigilant. Resist.

* * *

Earlier today by me: The Lives of Women and Nikki Haley Has Resigned and Trump's War on Immigrants: The Latest. Also, ICYMI late yesterday: "This is going to be very contentious and no one really knows how it is all going to shake out."

Here are some more things in the news today...

[Content Note: Rape culture] Andy Towle at Towleroad: Trump Apologizes to Brett Kavanaugh for His 'Pain and Suffering', Declares Him 'Proven Innocent'. "Donald Trump apologized to alleged rapist Brett Kavanaugh before his ceremonial swearing in at the White House on Monday night... Said Trump: 'On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering you have been forced to endure. Those who step forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation, not a campaign of personal and political destruction based on lies and deception. What happened to the Kavanaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency, and due process. In our country, a man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. And with that, I must state that you, sir, under historic scrutiny, were proven innocent.'"

Mick Krever and Devan Cole at CNN: Clinton Says Trump Remarks at Kavanaugh Swearing-In Undermine Supreme Court.
Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that [Donald] Trump staged a "political rally" at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's ceremonial swearing-in that "further undermined the image and integrity of the court."

"What was done last night in the White House was a political rally. It further undermined the image and integrity of the court," Clinton, Trump's Democratic 2016 election opponent, told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview.

"And that troubles me greatly. It saddens me. Because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government. So I don't know how people are going to react to it. I think, given our divides, it will pretty much fall predictably between those who are for and those who are against," Clinton said.

"But the President's been true to form," she continued. "He has insulted, attacked, demeaned women throughout the campaign — really for many years leading up to the campaign. And he's continued to do that inside the White House."
Thank Maude for her. I'm so grateful to her for saying that.

Especially when Republican men are out here saying shit like this:


And this: Justin Wise at the Hill: McConnell: GOP Senators Were 'Literally Under Assault' in Days Before Kavanaugh Vote. "'I couldn’t be prouder of the Senate Republican Conference. We were standing up for the presumption of innocence in this country …And secondly, we were literally under assault,' McConnell said at a press conference in Kentucky. 'These demonstrators, I'm sure some of them were well-meaning citizens. But many of them were obviously trying to get in our faces, to go to our homes. Basically almost attack us in the halls of the capitol. There was a full-scale effort to intimidate.'" FUCKKKKKKKKK YOUUUUUUUUUU.

Speaking of Mitch McConnell being FUCKING TERRIBLE... [CN: Video may autoplay at link] Paul Begala at CNN: McConnell Has Done Grave Damage to All Three Branches of Government. "Richard Nixon damaged the presidency, Newt Gingrich turned the House of Representatives into a mixed martial arts arena, and Roger Taney forever stained the Supreme Court with the Dred Scott decision. But it takes someone special, someone rare, someone spectacularly Machiavellian and malevolent, to screw up all three branches of government. Ladies and gentlemen: Mitch McConnell. The soft-spoken Kentuckian has, in just a few short years, done lasting damage to the presidency, the Senate, and the Supreme Court: the hat trick of democracy destruction."

* * *

Josh Israel at ThinkProgress: 'Balanced-Budget' Republicans Vote to Add a Half Trillion to the Deficit with New Tax Cut Bill. "As the nation watched the Senate Judiciary Committee meet to consider whether to rush through the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, the House Republican majority was quietly passing the Protecting Family and Small Business Tax Cuts Act of 2018 — a bill to make the Trump tax cuts for the rich permanent. According to the GOP-controlled Joint Committee on Taxation and the Congressional Budget Office, the bill would add another $545 billion to the federal budget deficit over the next decade. This would be on top of the trillions already added to the debt by the original tax bill and the omnibus budget signed by Trump earlier this year."

Paul A. Eisenstein at NBC News: Trump's Tariffs Have Already Cost Ford $1B; Now It's Planning Layoffs. "Ford will be making cuts to its 70,000-strong white-collar workforce in a move it calls a 'redesign' of its staff to be leaner, have fewer layers, and offer more decision-making power to employees, the company announced. ...Ford has already warned that [Donald] Trump's auto tariffs have impacted the company to the tune of $1 billion, and the president's trade policies threaten to play havoc with Ford's ongoing reorganization."

Noah Smith at the Guardian: America's First Robot Farm Replaces Humans with 'Incredibly Intelligent' Machines. "America's first autonomous robot farm launched last week, in the hopes that artificial intelligence (AI) can remake an industry facing a serious labor shortage and pressure to produce more crops. Claiming an ability to 'grow 30 times more produce than traditional farms' on the strength of AI software, year-round, soilless hydroponic processes, and moving plants as they grow to efficiently use space, the San Carlos, California-based company Iron Ox aims to address some of the agricultural industry's biggest challenges. Such challenges have also caught the attention of investors, who made more than $10bn in investments last year, representing a 29% increase from 2016."

Sounds legit. (Does not sound legit.)

Tim Johnson at McClatchy: Are Wireless Voting Machines Vulnerable? Florida, Other States Say They're Safe Enough. (Oh, that's exactly what you want to hear about voting machines. They're SAFE ENOUGH.) "Barely a month before midterm elections, voting integrity advocates and electronic voting experts want the federal government to issue an official warning to states that use voting machines with integrated cellular modems that the machines are vulnerable to hacks, potentially interfering with the ballot counting. Once seen as a useful tool to provide quick election results, voting machines with cellular modems are now subject to fierce debate over how easy it would be to break into them and change the results. Such machines are certified for use in Florida, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin."

Julia Carrie Wong and Olivia Solon at the Guardian: Google to Shut Down Google+ After Failing to Disclose User Data Breach.
This March, as Facebook was coming under global scrutiny over the harvesting of personal data for Cambridge Analytica, Google discovered a skeleton in its own closet: A bug in the API for Google+ had been allowing third-party app developers to access the data not just of users who had granted permission, but of their friends.

If that sounds familiar, it's because it's almost exactly the scenario that got Mark Zuckerberg dragged in front of the U.S. Congress. The parallel was not lost on Google, and the company chose not to disclose the data leak, the Wall Street Journal revealed Monday, in order to avoid the public relations headache and potential regulatory enforcement.

Disclosure will likely result "in us coming into the spotlight alongside or even instead of Facebook despite having stayed under the radar throughout the Cambridge Analytica scandal," Google policy and legal officials wrote in a memo obtained by the Journal. It "almost guarantees Sundar will testify before Congress," the memo said, referring to the company's CEO, Sundar Pichai. The disclosure would also invite "immediate regulatory interest."

Shortly after the story was published, Google announced that it will shut down consumer access to Google+ and improve privacy protections for third-party applications.
Welp.

Laura Geggel at LiveScience: Huge Iceberg Poised to Break Off Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier. "A newly discovered long and craggy rift is splintering across West Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier, satellite images show. The nearly 19-mile-long (30 kilometers) rift started in the middle of the ice shelf, where the ice shelf touches warmer ocean waters that are melting it from underneath, said Stef Lhermitte, an assistant professor in the Department of Geoscience and Remote Sensing at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. The rift only has about another 6 miles (10 km) to go before one or more icebergs calf, breaking off from the glacier, Lhermitte said."

Staff at the Weather Channel: Hurricane Michael Intensifies to Category 2; May Be Florida Panhandle's Strongest Landfall in 13 Years Wednesday. "Hurricane Michael has strengthened to Category 2 intensity, and is forecast to strike the Florida Panhandle at least as strong as a Category 3 with dangerous storm surge flooding, destructive winds, and flooding rainfall. Michael will also bring heavy rain and strong winds to other parts of the southeastern United States after it moves inland. 'Michael could develop into a potentially catastrophic event for the northeastern Gulf Coast,' the National Weather Service office in Tallahassee, Florida, wrote in its area forecast discussion Monday afternoon."

          Goldmann: Hopes of Progress: European Integration in the History of International Law      Cache   Translate Page      
Matthias Goldmann (Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main - Law) has posted Hopes of Progress: European Integration in the History of International Law. Here's the abstract:
This paper argues that the Treaties of Rome and the process of European integration they heralded had a lasting impact on the development of international law. However, their significance is usually misattributed. While European law has had little impact on international legal doctrine, and while European integration has remained unique as a political project, European law and the process of European integration have served international law as an important progress narrative. In this respect, they have had an influence on important background understandings characterizing international law since the postwar era, including on the perception of international law as universal, autonomous, pluralistic, and economically liberal. The progress narrative culminates in the view that international law is in a normatively ambitious process of constitutionalization, an idea imported from European law. This progress narrative is now under threat as European integration faces existential difficulties.The crisis of European integration might therefore anticipate a crisis of international law.

The World Dream in Guangzhou

Guangzhou International Cruise Home Port (GIC) is located in the capital of Guangdong Province, a political, economic and cultural center in Southern China.

A converted cargo berth can now host a 150,000-ton ship, with a 4,000-square-meter terminal ready to process up to 1,600 guests per hour, according to port officials.

A large-scale infrastructure investment will add not only two more berths, but also a big passenger terminal, with a completion date of October 2019.

Guangzhou received 122 turnaround calls in 2017.

Major source markets include Guangdong Province, followed by Hunan, Hubei, Guangxi, Sichuan and  Chongqing Province and autonomous regions.

          Driverless Vehicles Not That Far in the Future for Oklahoma      Cache   Translate Page      
Autonomous vehicles may be in Oklahoma’s near future. Oklahoma City grocery chain Buy for Less is looking at automated delivery. In the meantime, a working group is figuring out how state and local policies will deal with autonomous vehicles ahead of that rollout. "They will begin with, of course, a driver in the cab while it’s driving autonomous. That will be at least a year away before we see that. And then, ultimately, they believe that they can have it fully autonomous," said Oklahoma Transportation Secretary Mike Patterson. Patterson said the forward progress puts Oklahoma on the forefront with California, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Texas. "They have people coming to their states, wanting to introduce this type of vehicle delivery, be it people or groceries. So, we’re extremely excited that we have, in our own little way, paved the way for this to happen," Patterson said. The working group includes state and local officials, transportation experts, and other partners. Patterson

          Turkey 'Saber-Rattling' on US-Backed Militia in Syria      Cache   Translate Page      
Turkey is threatening to eradicate the People's Protection Units (YPG) militia in Syria. But such a move would put it on a collision course with the United States, which backs the Syrian Kurdish group as a key ally in the war against Islamic State and curtailing Iran's influence. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey's army will sweep the YPG from its border. Ankara claims the militia is linked to the Kurdistan Workers' Party, (PKK), which is waging a decades-long insurgency for Kurdish autonomy in Turkey. In an address to parliament last week, Erdogan vowed the destruction of the YPG, and slammed Washington for its armed support of the group. "The United States has sent nearly 19,000 trucks [loaded with arms] to the YPG and PYD [Democratic Union Party] in northern Syria," Erdogan said. "Who will they use these arms against? We demanded to buy weapons from you, and you rejected [that]. However, you are giving those arms to terrorist groups." The YPG, with U.S. military backing, seized control of a broad swath of Syrian territory that runs east of Syria's Euphrates River to the Iraqi frontier. The region borders Turkey, and Ankara claims YPG control of this territory is an intolerable security threat. Turkey's forces have been steadily building up a presence close to strategic YPG towns. Its hardening rhetoric coincides with the U.S. indicating it will remain in Syria after IS is defeated. "We're not going to leave as long as Iranian troops are outside Iranian borders, and that includes Iranian proxies and militias," White House National Security Advisor John Bolton said at last month's U.N. General Assembly. Former senior Turkish diplomat Aydin Selcen, who served in Washington and in the region, said he believes the YPG has become key to U.S. objectives in the area. "Now, the U.S.' main struggle in the region is with Iran," Selcen said. "And this particular triangle region to the east of the Euphrates is of high importance when it comes to stopping Iranian presence in the Middle East. I don't see how the U.S. can do anything about the YPG presence east of the Euphrates near the Turkish border." He added that pushing the militia away from the Turkish border also is not viable. "All the towns [under YPG control] are aligned along the Turkish border," he said  "So you cannot ask the YPG to leave those towns, as they will have to go to the desert areas, which is not feasible." Iran and Russia have been quick to exploit the apparent standoff between Turkey and the U.S. Last month, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said, "The main danger to Syria's territorial integrity originates from the eastern bank of the Euphrates, where independent and autonomous structures are created under the direct control of the United States." Analysts say Iran and Russia share Turkey's concern over U.S. backing of the YPG. And they suggest a decision by the group's political wing, the PYD, earlier this month to end talks with Damascus likely was influenced by Washington's renewed commitment to remain in Syria. While backing rival sides in the Syrian civil war, Turkey has found common ground with Iran and Russia to resolve the conflict. At the same time, Moscow and Tehran are widely seen to be using that cooperation to try and draw Ankara away from Washington. Turkey already controls a large swath of Syrian territory from previous military operations against the YPG. But analysts suggest the Syrian government, Iran and Russia would likely hesitate to support the Turkish army further extending its control of Syria, even if it meant ousting U.S. forces. Saber rattling Despite Turkey's heightened rhetoric and military presence on the Syria border, there is a suspicion it remains just saber rattling. "There was an increase in forces from the Turkish side near Tel Abyad [a YPG-controlled Syrian town] and what Mr. Erdogan said any military operation could be imminent in the east of the Euphrates," Selcen said. "To me, this was not very probable because it would bring two NATO members — Turkey and the U.S. — face to face in Syria." The threat of military action could be just leverage on the U.S., sharply criticized by Turkey for its slow response to enforcing an agreed road map for the YPG to withdraw from the strategic Syrian city of Manbij. "Manbij remains an open wound in Turkish-U.S. relations," said international relations expert Soli Ozel of Istanbul's Kadir Has University. "The previous U.S. administration promised Ankara YPG forces would leave the city after its capture from Islamic State, a commitment it failed to honor." In a move that could dial down tensions, Turkey's Defense Minister Hulusi Akar announced this week that joint patrols by Turkish and U.S. forces would start in Manbij. Erdogan had accused Washington of foot-dragging in honoring a commitment to begin the patrols,seen by Turkey as an essential step toward removing the YPG from Manbij. Despite Turkey's fiery rhetoric, analysts say cooperation with the U.S. is continuing in Syria, and as a senior Western diplomat pointed out, Turkey continues to accommodate U.S. forces' heavy reliance on its critical Incirlik airbase for Syrian operations.

          More on I-1631; Autonomous Vehicle Work Group; East King Chambers Coalition Draft Position Papers      Cache   Translate Page      

More on I-1631

After rigorous review of the facts and discussion, at both Executive Committee and Board levels, the Chamber has announced it will not support Initiative 1631, imposing a new carbon fee. While the Chamber supports the goal of Greenhouse Gas Emissions reduction, we believe this can better be accomplished through incentives, rather than a new fee or additional regulations.

Read our news release on Initiative 1631 here

In performing due diligence on this ballot measure, Chamber members gave great weight to the following policy points.

  • The Chamber previously considered, but ultimately opposed, Initiative 732 in 2016, a carbon tax proposal which was ultimately rejected by the voters.
  • While I-732 would have imposed a carbon tax of $25 per ton, beginning in 2018, with a 3.5% annual escalator, it also included a hard cap of $100. I-1631 proposes an initial fee of $15 per ton beginning in 2020 and it contains an escalator of $2 per ton plus inflation, with a price freeze at $40 per ton (constant dollars) in 2035, only if the state’s statutory carbon emissions goals are reached.
  • To offset the impact of the carbon tax, I-732 would have eliminated the B&O tax on manufacturing and provided a 1% reduction in the sales tax. I-1631 contains no similar across-the-board tax relief for business.
  • The I-631 campaign claims to go after the most egregious corporate polluters but exempts so-called Energy Intensive Trade Exposed Businesses (EITE’s) in 23 categories. Examples of the latter include coal-fired power plants, pulp and paper mills and chemical manufacturers.
  • Revenue collected under I-1631 would be allocated by a multi-tiered and non-elected board, without direct representation by legislators, small business owners or taxpayers.
  • Oil refiners are not exempt, however, and the direct impact upon consumers is estimated to be 15 cents per gallon, beginning in 2019, rising to 40 cents per gallon by 2029 (Source: Everett Herald).
  • If the Chamber wishes to have a direct impact upon carbon reduction, we can work directly with the Legislature and state Department of Ecology, regarding implementation of the US v. Volkswagen settlement, support continued electrification of the transportation sector and increased support for the multi-modal fund in the 2019-2021 biennial transportation budget.

Regardless as to the outcome of the vote on I-1631, the Bellevue Chamber will remain engaged with other business organizations and our elected officials to achieve measurable carbon reduction over the near and long term.


Autonomous Vehicle Work Group

While the operation of fully autonomous vehicles on local arterials may be years away, we believe the time is now for Bellevue to lead the in the development and testing of disruptive transportation technologies.

Chamber Chair-elect John Milbrath and Director of Government Relations Chris Johnson, along with City of Bellevue Transportation Partnership Manager Steve Marshall and ACES Eastside Project Manager Bruce Agnew all participate in the WA State Autonomous Vehicle Work Group.

To next meeting of the A/V Work Group Executive Committee is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, October 24th; find additional information here.

          Nikki Haley Stepping Down as UN Ambassador       Cache   Translate Page      

It’s hard to know for certain whether Nikki Haley’s decision to step down as the ambassador to the United Nations is basically an autonomous decision or is driven more by the president and his displeasure with her service. There is plenty of ammunition to arm either argument, and so it may be that this is a rare case where it really is a mutual decision.

What’s not really in doubt is that Ambassador Haley is ambitious. Having already served as a state governor and in a cabinet level position, the next step seems fairly obvious. She will seek the presidency and hope that at worst it earns her a place on the ticket as someone’s number two. The big question is whether she will wait until 2024 to make her run.

To be sure, she’s saying all the right things:

Ms. Haley, who has long been seen as a potential presidential candidate, said she had no intention of running for the presidency in 2020, as has been speculated. Instead, she said, she plans to campaign for Mr. Trump’s re-election.

“I think you have to be selfless enough to know when you step aside and allow someone else to do the job,” Ms. Haley said.

Yet, she knows just as well as everyone else that Robert Mueller’s special counsel’s office has accumulated a near phalanx of cooperating witnesses who are providing evidence against the president in the Russia investigation. She knows that the investigation has been on a campaign-related hiatus since Labor Day and will begin making big news again in only a handful of weeks. It is best you make your departure from the administration official before that happens to remove as much of the taint as can be removed. She has already made certain to leave a trail of dissent and disagreement with Trump policies and actions that she can point to in defense of her decision to serve in Trump’s cabinet. She can provide inside information to create further separation if she needs to, while choosing to stay mostly loyal if that seems like the better political choice.

She seems to have things plotted out fairly well, although it’s probably a mistake to agree to serve out the remainder of the year. That may require her to defend the president in ways that will come back to haunt her.

In any case, I wouldn’t take her promises not to run in 2020 and to campaign for Trump’s reelection at face value. Those are promises she can keep if they seem worth keeping, but if things work out they way she hopes she will be breaking them.

          Comment on Richard Lindzen Lecture at GWPF: ‘Global Warming for the Two Cultures’ by Michael Carter      Cache   Translate Page      
“In a similar way, the atmosphere–ocean system responds to steady forcing with its own modes of variation (which, admittedly, are often more complex than the modes of a violin string). Moreover, given the massive nature of the oceans, such variations can involve timescales of millennia rather than milliseconds. El Niño is a relatively short ex- ample, involving years, but most of these internal time variations are too long to even be identified in our relatively short instrumental record. Nature has numerous examples of autonomous variability, including the approximately 11-year sunspot cycle and the reversals of the Earth’s magnetic field every couple of hundred thousand years or so. In this respect, the climate system is no different from other natural systems.” This to me is the crux. I am a sedimentary geologist and an avid observer of ecology. I have seen wonderful expressions of cyclical change within outcrops. In one particular limestone there was no less than 7 major units around 200 mm thick, stacked one on top of another (no, this was not flaggy limestone which is layered due to diagenesis ) . Within each major unit there were sub-units – expressions of cyclical sea level change i.e. small cycles within large cycles repeating themselves in remarkably similar fashion. In geology we rank such cycles in “orders” running from 1 – 5 See: http://www.sepmstrata.org/page.aspx?pageid=275. But, I also base my skepticism on what I observe in nature: “ Nature has numerous examples of autonomous variability” So true. Nature is dependent on constantly being challenged and adaptation, which in turn is dependent on oscillations that overshoot due to lag times while negative feedbacks and/or natural forcings kick in to correct back in the opposite direction. The elephant in the room relates to negative feedbacks that are not documented in simplistic models. I am sure that there will be many yet to be identified e.g. how does enhanced vegetation growth effect climate? It is very clear in the rock record that earth has evolved an extremely robust regulating system and that this system is totally dependent on cyclical change. A rise in CO2 has little chance of overpowering such resilience. I read recently that alarmists find geologists and statisticians to be the most skeptical of all professions. Funny that :-) Regards M
          Program Analyst at Chemonics International      Cache   Translate Page      
At Chemonics, we believe our mission of helping people live healthier, more productive, and more independent lives is driven by our commitment to service—service to our mission, to our beneficiaries, to our clients, and to our staff. From our founding in 1975, we have worked in more than 150 countries to help our clients, partners, and beneficiaries face difficult challenges, from political instability to limited healthcare to a lack of market infrastructure. We have helped them overcome those challenges by working together to find and implement innovative projects that achieve development impact.PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has contracted Creative Associates International to implement the Nigeria Lake Chad Basin (NLCB) Program, a quick-response mechanism supporting activities that support efforts to strengthen and extend stability and deny and undermine extremist or other groups, such as Boko Haram and Islamic State West Africa (BH & ISIS-WA), and other relevant issue sets that arise from violent extremist organization (VEO) activity, in Lake Chad Basin (LCB) countries. The USAID/OTI NLCB Program is a successor to the successful Nigeria Regional Transition Initiative (NRTI) launched in 2014 as the flagship program to address the Boko Haram insurgency. As a regional issue, the complexity of a peacebuilding response to the conflict requires a highly contextualized, localized response at individual, community and national levels in each of the countries of the Lake Chad Basin. As such, USAID/OTI is currently operating in all of the Lake Chad Basin countries where communication and coordination among all programs is critical. The initial objectives of the NLCB program are to 1) Offer alternatives to extremist action for vulnerable individuals; 2) Increase community resilience to extremist action; 3) Strengthen the ability of moderate actors to engage in key communities prioritized for stabilization; and 4) Inform USG and non-USG stakeholders by providing analytical data on local, national and regional instability and/or violent extremist trends. The program is implemented primarily through small grants at the community level, designed to address specific problems or requests. Activity processes are as important as activity outputs in contributing to the program's strategic goal. Program objectives are not met solely by performing tasks under an activity, but rather through an inclusive locally-led process that brings the community (including GoN) together to realize goals and foster positive engagement. POSITION SUMMARY The Program Analyst processes the high volume of information generated by program activities, including learning activities, as well as open-source, third-party reporting and data collected by field staff to formulate program strategy recommendations to the senior management team. Reporting to the Deputy Chief of Party - Programs, the Program Analyst closely collaborates with the program's Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Specialist as well as Reporting Officer to lead learning and communication efforts. REPORTING & SUPERVISION The Program Analyst reports to the Deputy Chief of Party - Programs, and works in close collaboration with the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Specialist, the Reporting Officer, as well as the USAID/OTI Deputy Country Representative. The position is based in Abuja. PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES Analyze the mass of information generated by program activities (activity notes, final evaluation reports, background sections of grant write-ups), as well as learning activities (for example, influence mapping reports, cluster evaluations) and open-source, third-party reporting to formulate program strategy recommendations to the senior management team. In close collaboration with the Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning Specialist, ensure that lessons learned from past activities are reflected in the design and writing of new activities. Collaborate with the Reporting Officer on the drafting of weekly, semi-annual and ad-hoc reports as it relates to analytical, research pieces. Monitor the geographic footprint of the program's activities to ensure that it stays relevant. Participate in weekly meetings with M&E team to determine priority tasks and provide support as necessary. Represent the program in meetings with USAID, Government of Nigeria and other stakeholders. In collaboration with the MEL Specialist, develop and supervise the implementation of innovative data collection techniques and tools, including working with external service providers to develop research and learning activities. At the request of USAID/OTI and the senior management team, conduct desk reviews or lead field research encompassing large, difficult and diverse problem sets. Contribute to cluster-level or program-level evaluations. Any other task at the request of the senior management team. Required Skills & Qualifications: University degree in international development, social science, economics, or related field is required. 2 years' experience in the management of field monitoring, evaluation design, empirical and statistical analysis, management information systems and/or information management design is required. At least 4 years of general work experience is required. Proficiency at using Microsoft office software: MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc. is required. Qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis skills and experience are required. Ability to work autonomously and take initiative to generate valuable findings and communicate them in a timely manner. Prior experience with USAID or US Government funded projects is highly desirable. Attention to detail and ability to follow up on tasks to completion is required. Experience of working in a conflict environment is a plus. Written and spoken fluency in English is required. Fluency in one or more of the local state languages in the North Eastern part of Nigeria is preferable.

Ford quiere que conducir tu coche autónomo a través del móvil sea una realidad #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

No son pocas las películas de acción y ciencia ficción en las que hemos visto cómo los protagonistas conducían coches a distancia, convirtiéndolos en drones y controlando cada una de sus acciones con un tablet o un dispositivo móvil, y parece que la realidad está a un paso de encontrarse con la ficción. Eso es lo que pretenden en Ford.

Los coches autónomos están a un paso de llegar al mercado, y muchos son los fabricantes que toman posiciones para no perder el tren de una revolución que pretende cambiar la relación que tenemos con los vehículos. Ahora Ford quiere ir un paso más allá, y su última patente pretende que podamos conducir el coche con el móvil. Y ha patentado dos sistemas.

Conduce tu coche como el Asphalt

Conducción a distancia de un coche

A efectos prácticos, la única diferencia real que puede existir entre un coche autónomo y un dron radica en el lugar del cerebro que maneja el vehículo. En un coche autónomo el cerebro está dentro, mientras que en el dron somos nosotros, a distancia. Aunque esa distancia puede ser tan corta que estemos sentados dentro del mismo coche.

Pese a que los coches autónomos circularán sin ayuda, podemos necesitar hacernos con el control de ellos en algún momento de la conducción, bien por una emergencia o por puro placer. Ahí es donde Ford quiere integrar su nueva patente, y nos permitirá tomar el control del coche con dos sistemas de conducción diferentes.

El primero será más propio de un videojuego que de un mando a distancia o control remoto. El móvil será capaz de hacer que el coche gire mediante sus acelerómetros, como hacemos en Asphalt y otros juegos similares. Eso significa que inclinaremos el móvil y el coche seguirá nuestras instrucciones, virando hacia donde le indiquemos.

Un control con los acelerómetros y otro táctil para los futuros vehículos autónomos de Ford

Pero habrá un segundo sistema, algo más sencillo y probablemente más intuitivo para quienes ya hayan conducido previamente, y que nos mostrará un volante en la pantalla con control táctil. Un sencillo gesto sobre la pantalla servirá para controlar el volante y éste, a su vez, el coche autónomo al que estemos conectados.

Por supuesto, hablamos únicamente de una patente y no significa ni que vaya a llegar pronto al mercado, ni que tan siquiera esté asegurado que llegue. Aunque siempre es interesante saber en qué trabajan los distintos fabricantes, sobre todo cuando hablamos de la sinergia entre coches y teléfonos móviles. Como la llave digital, a medio paso de ser un estándar.

          Won't accept Pak's double standard of justice: MQM chief      Cache   Translate Page      

[United Kingdom], Oct 10, (ANI): Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) founder and leader Altaf Hussain on Wednesday vowed to rebuild a new state for Mohajir people who have allegedly been denied equal rights and justice by Pakistan from the past several decades.

Speaking at his 65th anniversary here, Hussain said, "Justice system in Pakistan is of dual standard, which is unacceptable. We would either accept a fully autonomous and powerful province for Mohajirs or a complete new Mohajir State. We won't accept anything less than either of these options."

The MQM founder discussed in detail the prevailing anti-Mohajir and anti-Baloch policies of the state of Pakistan and asked, "What would be the exact feelings on seeing others occupying the house on gun points, exploiting all resources on the basis of power and influence? This is the typical situation that calls for use of power to retrieve the stolen rights. The oppressors would never listen to us unless we use the same strategy, say the use of power to repel them out of our lands"

Elaborating on the ongoing issue, Hussain added, "This is the typical situation that calls for use of power to retrieve the stolen rights. The oppressors would never listen to us unless we use the same strategy, say the use of power to repel them out of our lands."

The MQM founder further said that he has been questioned as to why he had slammed Pakistan ignoring that his people have been kidnapped and enforced to disappear and are extra-judicially murdered and these things are enough to upset any sensible mind. When Mohajir women visited Martyrs' monument at Azizabad, they were subjected to torture and arrest and even minor children were also not spared, he noted.

"Mohajirs' ancestors created Pakistan but today their offspring are denied of their just equal rights and are treated as slaves. Mohajirs had laid 2 million lives for the creation of Pakistan but they armed forces of the country had slaughtered more than 22, 000 Mohajirs during special crackdowns. Not only this but a senescent leader of the Movement, a 70-year old academician Prof. Dr Hassan Zafar Arif was picked and murdered by the armed forces of the country on Jan 13, 2018, forgetting his role in educating millions in Pakistan. Are the armed forces and law enforcers for peoples' protection or butchering them? Will they be saluted or slammed?" he questioned.

Stressing on the inequality faced by Mohajirs, Hussain said when Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif was produced in the court of law, his party workers were possessing armoured personnel carrier, but the police did not book them for any offence. "But when the women journalists belonging to Mohajir community entered an office of a Pakistani private television company asking them to be unbiased in reporting, the paramilitary Rangers and Police tortured them and later lodged them in jail. The Rangers had also killed one of the youngest workers of the movement."

"Tehreek-e Labbaik had attacked media houses, police stations and public property but they were felicitated with cash prizes while MQM women were subjected to torture and straight fire. Why this double standard? The Chief Justice of Pakistan ignored Khadim Hussain Rizvi who openly called names to him but on the contrary, the CJP awarded sentences to other political leaders in the garb of contempt to court."

Hussain continued, "Not only that, the Creator of Pakistan's nuclear programme and the atomic bomb, Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan was also a Mohajir but was humiliated and the entire credit was given to a Punjabi Scientist Dr. Samar Mund. Was that not sheer bias against the Mohajir Nation? We won't accept this double standard of justice, denied of justice. The state institutions are not willing or ready to listen to us and are taking all measures to eliminate us. Either we would accept a fully autonomous and powerful province or we would fight for independent Mohajir State."

The MQM leader also touched upon the issues of the Baloch community and said, "Pakistan's army is butchering the innocent Baloch youths because they are demanding equal rights. The army is killing them after declaring them as terrorists. Army has to roll back their plans and they would have to free Balochistan and we are the supporters of free and independent Balochistan."

While addressing the people of Punjab, he asked them to take to streets for supporting Baloch and Mohajirs in their fight for equality and human rights. Hussain also clarified that he had never slammed Pakistan but had slammed its corrupt and butchering feudal system."Pakistan should be free from the decayed feudal system, corrupt Capitalist system and that everyone in Pakistan should have equal rights and equal citizens. The minorities in Pakistan, especially the Ahmedi, should also be respected with regard to their rights and religious freedom as Pakistani citizens."

Hussain also talked about the judicial system of the Pakistan and said, "It is beyond reasoning that the apex court of Pakistan has declared Nawaz Sharif as most dishonest person but, on the other hand has held Imran Khan Niazi, the Prime Minister of Pakistan as most honest person ignoring the fact that the court of Los Angeles had already declared him as fornicator, a biological father of a girl child he reproduced out of marriage."

"Everything in Pakistan is done either by Pakistan's army or on its dictation and no institutions in Pakistan including the judiciary is free from the clutches of the army. What the courts in Pakistan are doing is only done on army's behest and dictation," he added.

Hussain also alleged that courts in Pakistan declare anyone as a traitor if instructed to do so by the Army. "The country is under siege," he added. (ANI)

          AI Drones And Force Fields Ward Off Shark Attacks      Cache   Translate Page      

Australian tech startups are using artificial intelligence, drones, and electric force fields to prevent sharks from attacking humans at beaches.

Bloomberg says US officials are closely monitoring the technological advancements because climate change is altering shark migration patterns and threatening to push great whites closer to US shores. In the last month, a man was killed by a shark off Cape Cod, the first fatal shark attack in Massachusetts since 1936, and another incident left a 13-year-old who was diving for lobsters at a beach in California with traumatic injuries to his torso.

Americans' internet searches for "shark attacks" this summer has certainly been well above trend. A series of attacks have catapulted fear into many beachgoers, which is why Bloomberg was so compelled to find anti-shark technology.

Florida Atlantic University Professor, Stephen Kajiura spoke with Bloomberg about why sharks are attacking humans. The reason: climate change of course! Kajiura said ocean waters are getting warmer thus driving sharks to higher latitudes to chase prey. "Apex predators at the top of the food chain, sharks will always follow their nourishment," he said, which means 1,500 to 2,400 lbs. great white sharks are moving into new terrain, including America’s northeastern coast.

"We are very aware of how close to shore great whites are now hunting," says Cynthia Wigren, a chief executive officer of the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy. Wigren told Bloomberg she started searching for technology to thwart shark attacks after last month's incidences on the East and West coast.

Her research led her to Australia, where statistically Australians have a higher chance of being attacked (odds of being attacked one in 2,704,600) by a shark than in any other country in the world, where a handful of tech firms have been developing ways to prevent shark-human interaction. 

A new smartphone app debuted last year called SharkMate, it uses artificial intelligence to analyze 13 environmental factors that affect shark behavior, including time of day, proximity to a river and recent rain. This is combined with other data, such as how many lifeguards on duty, to calculate a surfer's odds of being attacked on a given day.

The Ripper Group, a leading provider of strategy, training and deployment services for rescue drones in Australia, launched SharkSpotter, the world's first autonomous shark detecting drone. The artificial intelligence algorithm uses sensors underneath the drone to detect animals based on their movement, speed, color, texture, shape and swimming patterns. When it spots a shark, the drone automatically sends an alert to all lifeguards. CEO Eddie Bennet told Bloomberg that the drones are operating along 15 beaches in New South Wales, and indicated the aircraft will patrol another 50 beaches in the coming quarters.

While SharkMate and SharkSpotter influence human actions; Ocean Guardian’s Shark Shield casts a three-dimensional electrical field around a surfer. The device emits strong electrical pulses that cause the shark to experience safe but unbearable spasms in their sensitive electrical receptors, turning the shark away.

Bloomberg said top leading shark researchers support these three technologies that could be the solution to prevent shark attacks at popular beach destinations.

Dr. Gavin Naylor, director of the Florida Program for Shark Research, said the media’s obsession with shark attacks is warping reality.

Naylor oversees the International Shark Attack File and confirmed the shark attacks across the world are below average.

In 2017, there were 88 unprovoked attacks worldwide, and so far this year there have been 40.

The "sensational reporting," he said, stokes fear in the eyes of the public and crushes beach towns.

Besides the massive housing bubble in Australia, its economy brings in nearly $120 billion from tourism. Australia has some of the best beaches and surf spots in the world. So the mention of shark attacks in the news tends to be negative for its tourism industry.

British adventurer, writer and television presenter Bear Grylls, soaked himself with fish guts and blood for Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, dove into shark-infested North Atlantic waters (without a cage) and a Shark Shield. "I’m marinating in fish guts at their feeding time," Grylls said.

In the footage, massive bull sharks encircled him, he said: "This may have been a bad idea." As the sharks got closer to Grylls, the Shark Shield was switched on and repelled the sharks -- proving on national television that the technology works. 

This is where technology meets the wild, what could possibly go wrong?

          Shaun Bailey's 'Manifesto for London' event discussed plans to slash free travel for older Londoners      Cache   Translate Page      

shaun bailey manifesto

  • Shaun Bailey has been urged by London Conservatives to slash cheap transport for Londoners.
  • Conservative delegates at his "Manifesto for London" event called for the "hopper" bus fare discount to be scrapped and free travel for pensioners to be slashed.
  • Other ideas raised at the meeting included extending the tube to "s***hole" parts of London and a new fleet of self-driving buses.
  • Labour accused the Tories of plotting to make travel more expensive. The Conservatives denied any plans by Bailey to adopt the policies.

LONDON — The Conservatives discussed plans to take free travel away from hundreds of thousands of pensioners and scrap a popular discount on bus travel, at a meeting of London Tories held for their mayoral candidate Shaun Bailey at their party conference in Birmingham this month.

The "Manifesto for London" event was introduced by Bailey, who is standing against Labour's Sadiq Khan in 2020, and chaired by his Conservative colleague on the London Assembly, Andrew Boff.

Delegates discussed plans to remove free travel from millions of Londoners and extend the Tube to "s***hole" parts of London, plus a striking proposal to introduce a fleet of "autonomous" self-driving buses across the capital.

Among the policy ideas discussed at the event arranged by Conservatives on the London Assembly were:

Raising the Freedom Pass age to 75

Freedom passLondoners aged 56 and over currently benefit from free travel on the Tube and buses under the Freedom Pass scheme, funded by London councils. However, delegates at the event suggested that the age after which Londoners can qualify for the pass should be raised to 75, with one delegate describing it as a "bribe" for older people.

"The freedom pass was introduced to basically bribe old people and I think quite a lot of 56-75 could probably afford it anyway," they said. However, other delegates argued that doing so would be hugely unpopular with London voters.

Scrapping the hopper bus fare

sadiq khan hopper busWhen Khan became Mayor of London he introduced a new system by which Londoners are allowed to make unlimited journeys on buses and trams within one hour for the cost of one single fare. However, delegates at the Conservative conference discussed scrapping the so-called "hopper" discount, as "it costs a lot of money." Other Conservative delegates in the room argued against the move, however, suggesting that Khan's policy had proved popular with Londoners.

Extend the Tube to 's***hole' parts of London

shaun baileyAnother policy put forward by London Conservatives at the event was to extend the London Underground to Thamesmead, a deprived and isolated part of southeast London. One delegate proposing the idea said that it should be done because "Thamesmead is a s***hole so it can't get any worse anyway."

However, other delegates in the room disagreed with the policy, with one suggesting that adding another branch to the Jubilee line would cause "chaos" as "there just isn't the capacity to do it."

'Shaun Bailey's Killer Buses'

London busOne of the stranger ideas raised at the policy forum event was for a fleet of "autonomous" self-driving buses to be rolled out across the capital. This, one Conservative delegate argued, would be a natural successor to the so-called "Boris Bike" scheme introduced by former Conservative London Mayor Boris Johnson.

"We had the 'Boris Bike' so now we could have the "Shaun Bailey Autonomous Bus," they explained.

They argued that the buses would allow London to remove the influence of transport unions in the capital, because bus drivers would no longer be needed.

However, other delegates in the room worried that the new fleet of autonomous buses could cause a wave of fatalities on London's roads.

"When cyclists and other road users end up dead under the wheels of the automated buses it would be known as 'Shaun Bailey's Killer Buses," the delegate commented.

'Shaun alone will announce his policies'

Labour accused the Conservatives of plotting to make commuting more expensive for Londoners.

"Londoners know from bitter experience that the Tories increase TfL fares and make commuting more expensive whenever they are in power — fares went up by 42 per cent when Boris Johnson was Mayor," Labour MP Andy Slaughter told Business Insider.

"So no one will be surprised that the London Tory Party now want to scrap the unlimited Hopper bus fare and the Freedom Pass. This shows exactly why we need to keep Sadiq Khan as Mayor — he’s frozen TfL fares for four years and introduced the Hopper fare in the first place."

manifesto for london bailey

However, the Conservative party dismissed any suggestion that Bailey would take up the plans.

"This was clearly an open forum for delegates to discuss policy ideas," a Conservative spokesperson told Business Insider.

"They have not been adopted by Shaun, and to suggest otherwise is derisory. Shaun alone will announce his policies in due course over the coming 18 months.

"He will be listening to all Londoners about their concerns and priorities and what we need to do to tackle the issues of crime, housing and transport, where Londoners are being badly let down by Sadiq Khan."

Bailey under pressure to apologise for 'single mum' comments

shaun baileyBailey has come under pressure from the Labour party in recent days to apologise for a string of offensive comments and articles he made in the past. On Sunday Business Insider revealed that Bailey had ;claimed that single mums in inner cities "deliberately become pregnant" in order to secure homes and benefits from the government.

In the comments, unearthed by Business Insider, he added: "They won't be too careful about not becoming parents. In some cases, they will deliberately become pregnant - as they know that if they do, they will get a flat."

He went on: "It is the same with benefits. These people are not stupid. If the state offers them money for doing something, they will do it. It is as simple as that.

Bailey wrote that the state needed to get away from the idea that it is "acceptable" to be a single mother.

Responding to the row over these comments and others in which he suggested that multiculturalism had turned parts of the country into "crime-riddled cesspool[s]," Bailey, who was 38 at the time of making his comments about single mums, told the Evening Standard on Tuesday that he had made the comments as "a young man still figuring out his world."

NOW WATCH: This Syrian soap-making method is incredibly satisfying


          A ticking time bomb in China has global markets looking really shaky right now      Cache   Translate Page      

China tug of war

  • Global markets are jittery in recent days as fears about growth in China take hold.
  • "The larger the stimulus used by China to offset the trade war impact, the bigger will its deficit likely be," Tao Wang, UBS's chief China economist, said in a report on Tuesday
  • Markets are also worried about the ongoing Italian debt crisis, and the rising price of oil.

Trouble is brewing in global markets. Look no further than China. 

China's current account balance is down significantly from last year's 1.3% and will likely turn into a small deficit in 2019. If so that would be the first time in 24 years.

"The larger the stimulus used by China to offset the trade war impact, the bigger will its deficit likely be," UBS's Tao Wang, chief China economist, said in a report on Tuesday.

That may hurt confidence and hasten outflows, putting pressure on the nation's currency. 

"Although CNY depreciation can partially offset trade war impact, a large depreciation will likely hurt domestic confidence, trigger panic outflows and risk financial stability," UBS said. 

In the US stock market, Morgan Stanley says a bear market correction could arrive in 2019, sooner than markets currently expect.

After years of monetary stimulus and a short-term boost from the Trump administration’s tax cuts, more rate rises and lower bond prices will ultimately bring the US economy to a halt. But "before this occurs, it appears we will get a final spike higher," in yields, Morgan Stanley says.

The IMF lowered its outlook for the global economy, saying it will grow 3.7% this year, the same as in 2017 but down from the 3.9% it was forecasting for 2018 in July.

China has accepted its fate: Beijing is coming to terms with a lower rate of growth as the trade war with the US escalates, Barclay's chief China economist, Jian Chang, told CNBC. Tit-for-tat tariffs and reduction in Chinese export growth might trim between 0.5% to 1% off the Chinese economy, she said.

China's issues are leading major banks to question the strength of its stock market, with JPMorgan cutting its outlook on the country's equities from overweight to neutral last week.

The bank thinks the trade war brewing between Beijing and the Trump administration will have a negative impact on China's economy and, as a result, hit stocks.

"Total impact on China's GDP growth is 1.0%, if China does not take countermeasures," a team of JPMorgan analysts wrote.

Italy is also troublesome

Italy flag jets

Away from China and the USA, issues in Europe are also partly to blame for market jitters sweeping the globe. After a few months out of the limelight, Italy has sprung back to the forefront of investor concerns.

Last week, Italy submitted its spending plans for the next year to the EU. The budget came as a shock: The country said it planned to spend a whopping 2.4% more than it makes over the next three years.

This target risked breaching EU rules. Investors balked, sending the country's bond risk premium higher, and the euro tumbling.

Italy's longstanding high levels of debt are well-known, but previous governments had all at least paid lip service to the idea that they would reduce that debt. The current populist coalition is barely even doing that, and this is scaring people.

What's worse is that this week, research from Nomura suggested it could be decades before Italy can rein in its government debt to a level that meets European Union rules.

It's not just China and Italy that are worrying investors though.

Oil is also driving market concerns, with throttled output from major producers threatening to push prices even higher, and drag down total economic growth.

A combination of low output from OPEC producers coupled with looming sanctions from the USA against Iran has pushed up prices for oil in recent months, sending it to a more than four year high.

High oil prices tend to stunt economic growth, particularly in developing markets where increasing oil consumption is a key driver of rapid growth. The current situation, which sees Brent crude oil, the international benchmark, trading above $84 is particularly troubling, and was described as a "risky situation" by one of the most powerful people in the market this week.

"We should all see the risky situation, the oil markets are entering the red zone," Fatih Birol, the executive director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) said on Tuesday. Birol appealed for OPEC producers to increase output, warning that failing to do so will make for a "very, very challenging" end to the year.

          17 interesting facts about Catalonia      Cache   Translate Page      

We share the most interesting facts about Catalonia we learnt during our recent trip to the Catalan Pyrenees.

Located in Spain's far northeast corner, Catalonia is bordered by the Pyrenean mountains from southern France and Andorra. Catalonia is both an autonomous community within Spain and a historic principality that once extended into France.

Much has been reported of Catalonia's politics: the region's failed attempt to break away from Spain in October 2017 and its ongoing bid for independence. We could write an entire piece on political facts about Catalonia alone. However, the news reports do the region an injustice – there is so much more to Catalonia than protest and politics.

Strict agreement absolute bells accoutrements for the helpmate of a French beneficiary to the throne: a cloth-of-silver dress. Unfortunately, the bride’s growing anatomy was not taken into annual aback the dress was advised and so the consistent bodice was too small, acceptation that Marie Antoinette’s associates were clumsy to adhere the aback of the gown. According to Elizabeth Seymour Percy, Amazon of Northumberland, there was “quite a ample band of lacing and about-face absolutely visible, which had a bad aftereffect amid two broader stripes of chunk [the closing of which were a allowance from Marie Antoinette’s mother, Empress Maria Theresa of the Habsburg Empire].”

In accession to the billowing dress, Marie Antoinette’s approaching beautician Léonard Autié advised the bride’s strawberry-blonde beard “badly arranged” for the occasion. The comment, accounting in his journal, may accept reflected his animosity with the beautician Sieur Larsenneur, who styled Marie Antoinette’s beard on the day of her bells in a low, delicate upsweep adorned with adorning gems.

Despite the appearance faux pas on her bells day, queen Marie Antoinette adherent abundant efforts to her accessible image. Her milliner (hatter) Rose Bertin and beautician Léonard became accepted as the queen’s ‘Ministers of Fashion’, ambience precedents for approaching celebrity stylists. But Marie Antoinette’s acceptability for absurdity (as able-bodied as her Austrian origins) contributed to her unpopularity.

            In this episode, we look at the history of the Dutch cycle infrastructure, the symbiotic tension that we'll see between micromobility and autonomous vehicles, and the intangible quality of cities with vibrant micromobility ecosystems. We also cover: - the recent spate of news re: the dawning scooter wars (Bird, Lime, Jump) - San Francisco's highway history - the cost comparisons for cycling infrastructure vs. car infrastructure, especially when compared to modal share vs. landuse in European cities. - How the rollout of cycling infrastructure parallels (or doesn't) the rollout of cellular infrastructure in both the US and Europe. - the creative tension that will exist between micromobility vehicles vs. autonomous cars (walkable neighborhoods vs. exurbia sprawl) - the 'experience' factor of micromobility, and the unquantifiable value of the thrill of riding a scooter/e-bike vs. passive A-B transport and how this is influenced by the European vs. American views of the world. The transcript for this episode will be up on our Medium page very soon! Also worth checking out the Micromobility Summit that Horace will be hosting on January 31st in the Bay Area.

                      Comment on Why do we tax income instead of wealth? by coldblow      Cache   Translate Page      
            Deco From Peter Hitchens: "But here comes the kick to the groin: Michael Booth concludes that Swedish Social Democracy 'was driven by one single, over-arching goal; to sever the traditional, some would say natural, ties between its citizens, be they those that bound children to their parents, workers to their employers, wives to their husbands or the elderly to their families. Instead, individuals were encouraged - mostly by financial incentive or disincentive, but also through legislation, propaganda and social pressure - to ‘take their place in the collective’, as one commentator rather ominously put it, and become dependent on the government’. "But he notes that this can also be truthfully described as liberating Swedish citizens from each other allowing them to become autonomous entities. "But of course (and this conclusion is mainly me) they are only autonomous within the embrace of the strong state, which substitutes itself for family, employer and all other social ties, and seizes most of their wealth in return for requiring a loyalty and submission as great as any imposed in feudal times, in return for ‘social protection’. Thus did the peasant whose hovel lay in the shadow of his Lord's castle offer up his fealty in return for safety. "He quotes the Swedish author Henrik Berggren: "‘The Swedish system is best understood not in terms of socialism but in terms of Rousseau…Rousseau was an extreme egalitarian and he really hated any kind of dependence – depending on other people destroyed your integrity, your authenticity – therefore the ideal situation was one where every citizen was an atom separated from all the other atoms…The Swedish system’s logic is that it is dangerous to be dependent on other people, to be beholden to other people. Even to your family’. "Egalitarianism, the unshakeable dogma of our time, set loose in the 18th century by the French Revolution, and still prowling to and fro, seeking whom it may devour, even now ruining the educations of thousands of children near you, far more enduring and persistent than its close relatives, socialism and communism. Why cannot reasonable conservatism defeat it once and for all? "There’s an interesting mention here of the fact that Germany (probably one of the last socially conservative, pro-family major states in the world, thoiugh for how much longer?) funnels its welfare through the family, whereas Sweden's state provides its largesse directly to the individual, bypassing family. "And here was the blinding light. Here was where the stern paternal authoritarianism of modern egalitarianism met the stroppy 'libertarian' individualism of the post-1960s generations. There was no conflict. There was in fact an alliance. "I had a major epiphany in 1990-91, living in Moscow, when I realised that the real profound difference between Soviet life and my own life up till then in the Britain which existed between 1950 and 1990, was that in the USSR the state was ferociously strong and the married family (what was left of it) broken and weak, and that this was deliberate and conscious. The other differences, in state ownership of the economy and even in personal liberty, were superficial compared with this. In fact, it seemed to me that the state’s demand for mental submission was part of its war on private life and family life, rather than the other way round. Hence my near-obsession with the sinister cult (barely noticed by most foreign visitors to the USSR) of Pavlik Morozov, the mythical child revered by the Communist state for denouncing his own parents to the secret police. "And when I came, a few years later, to write my book The Abolition of Britain and several subsequent books on the same general subject, it was this conflict between private life and the married family on one side and the cold, parental all-encompassing state that was the real battle. Who cared about nationalisation or trade unions? This was the issue, the conflict whose outcome would decide all our futures. "And then came the great and growing explosion of popular atheism, and the open surrender of the state to drugtaking. What were all these things about? Why, they were about personal autonomy. Their central slogan was ‘I can do what I like with my own body and nobody can stop me. How dare you tell me what I can do with it?’ "The paradox, well understood by Aldous Huxley, is that the person who proudly yells this battle cry also meekly accepts that in return he must surrender his mind, his privacy and his wealth to the power of the parental state. "In Michael Booth’s book, it all came together in an intentional, deliberate pattern. These things are connected. And it is the absence of the Christian conscience which makes them possible, and which is their enemy and rival. The new all-powerful parental state, the war against the married family, the scorn for conscience, the loud demand for personal autonomy and the rage against those who suggest it is in any way limited by morality or law, are all one cause, reborn in the West since the collapse of the USSR and advancing fast on all fronts. I saw it in Moscow and after my return from there, but instinctively. As so often, my instincts were right, and it has taken long years for my understanding and knowledge to catch up with them "When I was researching The Abolition of Britain, I often found that quotations in various books and articles were incredible. How could such and such a person have actually said anything so brutally honest and thus so risky to his or her own cause? So I would nervously track them down to their sources, and was repeatedly amazed to find them accurate. It is one of the great joys of research. The one I was most amazed by, and the one I still wonder about, is about the parental state. As I wrote here some years ago: "‘Still to be found in the archives of The Times for February 1980 is a letter from Helen Brook, who spent much of her life obsessively pressing contraceptives first on unmarried women, then on schoolchildren. The triumph of her creepy beliefs has brought about [[Note, I would not now say this. I would say 'has been followed by'. But I did say it at the time]] a pandemic of unwanted pregnancies and abortions, the very things she claimed to be preventing. "‘She let her real aim be known when she wagged her finger warningly at those who dared get in her way, hissing: ‘From birth till death it is now the privilege of the parental State to take major decisions - objective, unemotional, the State weighs up what is best for the child.’ "She knew power was on her side. "When, back in 1967, she offered contraceptive 'help' to under-age girls - behind the backs of their parents and their GPs - most normal people viewed her actions as shocking. In 1995 (under a Tory government, of course) she got the CBE. Now her view is the law of the land.’ "And next?"

            A lengthy ride, but ultimately a satisfying one...

            After last year’s collaboration with Courtney Barnett, ‘Lotta Sea Lice’, here we have an album about, among other things, journeys, contingencies, aviophobia and family. It’s delivered with instinctive playfulness, the lyrics rolling off Kurt Vile’s loose tongue with ease.

            On ‘Bassackwards’, he seems to be channelling Jonathan Richman at his most whimsical. As he sings on ‘Hysteria, “the devil’s in the details”, and there’s a lot going on.

            It all sometimes feels a bit cloying, though unlike the results of, say, “I’m gonna write a 10-minute epic”, the songs sound almost autonomous, organic, and sprawl out unearnestly. It’s usually not good to be a one-trick pony, and ‘One Trick Ponies’ isn’t a highlight. But the album’s diversity, the way the playful is offset by the slightly plaintive, is one of its strengths.

            ‘Mutinies’ (featuring Kim Gordon on guitar), ‘Cold Was The Wind’ and ‘Rollin With The Flow’ are all richly evocative. “How’s it going?” blurts Vile at the opening of the latter. Such remarks – “woos” excepted – endear Vile, ever the Cool Dad, to the listener and take the edge off what could be a bit self-important.

            Jeez, it’s long, and there are some missteps, some ill-advised detours, along his peregrinations, but all in all, it’s worth coming along for the ride.

                      "World's oldest champagne" discovered near Åland found to be undrinkable      Cache   Translate Page      

            About eight years ago, many bottles of what was purported to be the world’s oldest champagne were discovered in a shipwreck among the islands of Åland, the semi-autonomous maritime province off Finland's south-west coast.

            There were hopes the champage, bottled around two centuries ago by famed champagne house Veuve Clicquot, could be auctioned off or mixed with a newer vintage.

            However, an analysis of the shipwreck bubbly by the French vintner that made it found the beverage to be undrinkable, according to public broadcaster Åland Radio.

            Åland's culture minister Tony Asumaa visited France last week, to hear about the champagne firm's analysis. A sample bottle of the shipwreck bubbly was sent to Veuve Clicot last year.

            Story continues after photo.

            File photo from 2010 of diver that helped find the wreckage of a two-masted ship which had sunk off of Åland’s coast between 1825 and 1830.

            At the time, the champagne treasure discovery made headlines around the world. It also caused local controversy when Finland's deputy chancellor of justice reprimanded the Åland regional government for recovering the shipwreck cargo before receiving permission from the National Board of Antiquities. In 2011 and 2012 Åland's government had sold off some of the bottles for record prices at auction and pocketed the considerable proceeds.

            Museum artefacts

            "Sure, it was champagne, but not of the quality that we wanted, so it is not worth it. From now own we will classify [the bottles of champagne] as museum pieces, not something to consume," Asumaa told Aland Radio.

            Before the champagne was deemed undrinkable, there were plans to pop open bottles of it in 2022, marking Åland's 100th year of autonomy.

            "There's nothing dangerous about the liquid in the bottles. They have been re-corked and there's no pressure in them anymore, so they can be saved for a long time," Asumaa said.

            The champagne - along with a few bottles of beer - was retrieved by Swedish divers in 2010 from a two-masted ship which sunk near the Åland Islands some time between 1825 and 1830.


                      The ‘Tesla of China’ IPO’ed last month in the US — take a look inside the swanky clubhouses they are using to try to lure wealthy people to buy their cars      Cache   Translate Page      

            WilliamLI.JPG

            • Chinese electric-car startup Nio, which has been touted as the Tesla of China, went public in the US last month.
            • The company is competing with Tesla in China, where the American automaker generated $2 billion in sales last year.
            • Nio is trying to win over customers with perks like its exclusive clubhouses for customers known as Nio Houses, which are a cross between a co-working space, a cafe, a daycare center, and an event space.
            • I recently a got a look inside the Nio House in the heart of Beijing. It was a calm, inviting space that would be a great place to stop by for a breather before or after a long day at work.

            Chinese electric-car startup Nio, which has been touted as the Tesla of China, went public in the US last month. The company raised $1 billion from the offering, falling short of the $1.8 billion target it had set.

            While the company held its initial public offering in the US, NIO's main target market is in China, where it is attempting to beat out Tesla to become the country's top electric vehicle manufacturer. Last year, Tesla generated $2 billion in sales, double what it made in 2016.

            But Nio officially launched its $67,000 ES8 electric SUV last December and began shipping it to customers in June. It's officially game on.

            Tesla has a nearly five-year headstart in China, but NIO is hoping that it can steal a page out of Apple's playbook to win over wealthy Chinese consumers. Namely, it wants to center its company and its cars around the tech industry idea of "user experience."

            "If we believe the car itself is a user touchpoint — one of many touchpoints a company can provide with its users — I think the mobile internet would be the applicable business model in the auto industry," CEO William Li told Business Insider this past spring.

            A major part of that strategy is offering its customers numerous perks to get them hooked on the company. The biggest perk they've come up with yet is a network of swanky clubhouses called NIO Houses so that NIO drivers home away from home wherever they take their cars.

            I recently got a look inside the company's NIO House in the heart of Beijing. Here's what it was like:

            SEE ALSO: Chinese consumers don't idealize American products the way they used to — and that's bad news for Apple and Tesla

            In December, Nio launched its first production car, the ES8, a seven-seat electric SUV with 220 miles of range. The first shipment of cars went out to customers who pre-ordered in June. It sells for around $68,000 before subsidies provided by the Chinese government.



            While the company said it plans to launch a car in the US in 2020, its main goal is beating out Tesla in China, where the company generated $2 billion in sales last year. Nio is working on a number of other cars, including the more affordable ES6 and this EVE autonomous concept car.



            But a huge part of the company's strategy is focusing on "user experience," Izzy Zhu, vice president of user development at Nio, told Business Insider. Like Tesla, Nio sells directly to customers at its locations, rather than third-party dealerships.

                      EU hijacking: self-driving car data will be copyrighted...by the manufacturer      Cache   Translate Page      

            Today, the EU held a routine vote on regulations for self-driving cars, when something decidedly out of the ordinary happened...

            The autonomous vehicle rules contained a clause that affirmed that "data generated by autonomous transport are automatically generated and are by nature not creative, thus making copyright protection or the right on databases inapplicable."

            This is pretty inoffensive stuff. Copyright protects creative work, not factual data, and the telemetry generated by your car -- self-driving or not -- is not copyrighted.

            But just before the vote, members of the European Peoples' Party (the same bloc that pushed through the catastrophic new Copyright Directive) stopped the proceedings with a rare "roll call" and voted down the clause.

            In other words, they've snuck in a space for the telemetry generated by autonomous vehicles to become someone's property. This is data that we will need to evaluate the safety of autonomous vehicles, to fine-tune their performance, to ensure that they are working as the manufacturer claims -- data that will not be public domain (as copyright law dictates), but will instead be someone's exclusive purview, to release or withhold as they see fit.

            Who will own this data? It's unlikely that it will be the owners of the vehicles. Just look at the data generated by farmers who own John Deere tractors. These tractors create a wealth of soil data, thanks to humidity sensors, location sensors and torque sensors -- a centimeter-accurate grid of soil conditions in the farmer's own field.

            But all of that data is confiscated by John Deere, locked up behind the company's notorious DRM and only made available in fragmentary form to the farmer who generated it (it comes bundled with the app that you get if you buy Monsanto seed) -- meanwhile, the John Deere company aggregates the data for sale into the crop futures market.

            VIENNA.- “This isn’t fashion, it’s passion, it’s madness” – thus did the French critic Ernest Chesneau characterise the mania of the Western public for the extravagant vases, lacquered boxes, fabrics and colour woodcuts that had arrived from the Far East and were on display at the 1878 World Exhibition in Paris. 

            Owing to pressure from the USA, Japan, after centuries of self-elected isolation, had in 1854 re-opened its ports for trade with the West; reformers in Japan moreover urged a presentation of the “new Japan” in the West, and the world exhibitions of 1867 and 1878 in Paris and in 1873 in Vienna offered eagerly taken opportunities as its platforms. Now, the elegant and exotic everyday objects, the exquisite textiles and most of all the brilliantly imaginative ukiyo-e – the colour woodcuts – rapidly conquered the European market and fulfilled the public’s craving for a foreign and unknown culture and a new kind of aesthetic.

            Expeditions to East Asia were launched – Émile Guimet and Enrico Cernuschi laid the foundations for the great museums of East Asian art in Paris named after them – and in 1872 the critic Philippe Burty coined the term that is still used today: “Japonisme”. 

            Japomania spread from Paris across the whole of Europe – in Germany, Belgium, Hungary, Scandinavia and Austria. In Vienna, the boom generated by the Far East aesthetic was in today’s terms a genuine hype, triggered by the 1983 World Exhibition in Vienna and inspiring such artists as Gustav Klimt and Josef Hoffmann.

            Above all, the exuberantly narrative colour woodcuts, pictures of the floating, ephemeral world, were coveted collectables, also for the artists who integrated the unaccustomed vocabulary of forms, the astonishing themes and motifs into their imagery. Monet, Manet, Van Gogh, Degas and Gauguin were the first, followed by the younger artists – Toulouse-Lautrec, Bonnard, Vuillard, Vallotton, Marc, Kandinsky, to name only the most significant. 

            Unusual compositional and conceptual novelties conquered Western art: extreme horizontal or pillar formats, curtailed figures in pronounced foreshortening, the combination of bird’s-eye-view and stark close-up perspectives, also extensive empty spaces in front of a high horizon; compositions fusing decorative arrangements with snapshot views, black silhouettes and the subtle use of the line. Together with the rediscovery of radiant local colours, the incisive and witty observation of flora and fauna, of everyday activities or ghost scenarios, they enriched Western painting in the most multifaceted ways.

            Subsequently the inspirations from the Far East fostered autonomous interpretation and translation into a new language of forms, leading to the upcoming modernism of the twentieth century – in which the trend towards abstraction and the rejection of the conventional picture space would develop as an independent movement of its own. 

            For the Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien exhibition, the artists Margot Pilz, Eva Schlegel and Stephanie Pflaum have taken up the theme of the teahouse as a place of encounter and, viewing it from different aspects, have developed their own individual reflections on it.

                      Nikki Haley Stepping Down as UN Ambassador       Cache   Translate Page      

            It’s hard to know for certain whether Nikki Haley’s decision to step down as the ambassador to the United Nations is basically an autonomous decision or is driven more by the president and his displeasure with her service. There is plenty of ammunition to arm either argument, and so it may be that this is a rare case where it really is a mutual decision.

            What’s not really in doubt is that Ambassador Haley is ambitious. Having already served as a state governor and in a cabinet level position, the next step seems fairly obvious. She will seek the presidency and hope that at worst it earns her a place on the ticket as someone’s number two. The big question is whether she will wait until 2024 to make her run.

            To be sure, she’s saying all the right things:

            Ms. Haley, who has long been seen as a potential presidential candidate, said she had no intention of running for the presidency in 2020, as has been speculated. Instead, she said, she plans to campaign for Mr. Trump’s re-election.

            “I think you have to be selfless enough to know when you step aside and allow someone else to do the job,” Ms. Haley said.

            Yet, she knows just as well as everyone else that Robert Mueller’s special counsel’s office has accumulated a near phalanx of cooperating witnesses who are providing evidence against the president in the Russia investigation. She knows that the investigation has been on a campaign-related hiatus since Labor Day and will begin making big news again in only a handful of weeks. It is best you make your departure from the administration official before that happens to remove as much of the taint as can be removed. She has already made certain to leave a trail of dissent and disagreement with Trump policies and actions that she can point to in defense of her decision to serve in Trump’s cabinet. She can provide inside information to create further separation if she needs to, while choosing to stay mostly loyal if that seems like the better political choice.

            She seems to have things plotted out fairly well, although it’s probably a mistake to agree to serve out the remainder of the year. That may require her to defend the president in ways that will come back to haunt her.

            In any case, I wouldn’t take her promises not to run in 2020 and to campaign for Trump’s reelection at face value. Those are promises she can keep if they seem worth keeping, but if things work out they way she hopes she will be breaking them.

            We've had the technology to solve modern transit problems for, what, 150 years? Every single complaint people have about public transit could be addressed if municipal transit agencies were given adequate funding. Every one of them, except that you won't be able to go door-to-door. But the expense, inconvenience, lack of personal safety, uncleanliness, and everything else people associate with public transit? Those are all issues that could be solved, but won't, because the people with money are going after the cooler-sounding novelty solution instead of the one that will support far more people.

            And I can guarantee that the novelty of a self-driving car will wear off. Your commute isn't going to stop being your commute just because you can read and work in your autonomous car. Man, you can already read and work on the damn bus or subway, and people do.

            This is the first I've heard of "autonomous-only lanes," even though the author is critical of the idea, given how little funding roads get nowadays. How about special "bus-only" lanes? If you want to increase efficiency, increase the number of people being moved per vehicle.

            As always, tons of money pours into the future technology that may eventually solve our problems, because the existing technology isn't exciting enough. It's like the ol' Segway thing: you can have gyroscopes and complex electronics that ensure your 2-wheeled vehicle stays upright, or you could install a third wheel. But oh look, the gear differential was designed to produce a musical harmony.

                      6 Best Free Remote Access Software Tools in 2018      Cache   Translate Page      

            The purpose of remote access software, sometimes also called remote desktop software or remote control software, is to let you control a computer remotely from another computer. This can be useful when a friend or relative who isn’t as computer-savvy as you are asks you for help, or when you let an application run on your computer and want to monitor its progress even when you’re away.

            Most remote access software tools rely on a client-server architecture, with both the client and the server using a piece of software to facilitate the connection. In practice, this means that you need to install a remote access software host application on the computer you would like to access remotely, and then run a remote access software client application on each device from which you would like to connect to the computer.

            Some remote access software tools make this easier than others, so it’s important to pick one that fits your needs and skill level. Typically, the more complicated a remote access software tool is, the greater control over the remote connection it gives you. To get you started, we’ve selected 5 best free remote access software tools available and described the main characteristics of each.

            1. TeamViewer

            TeamViewer is by far the most popular remote access software tool available. Connecting over 1.7 billion devices every day, TeamViewer has convinced millions of home and business customers that it’s the best remote connectivity solution on the market with its incredibly fast and secure global network, wide range of features, and excellent ease of use.

            TeamViewer is free for personal use, and it’s available for windows, macOS, linux, Chrome OS, iOS, Android, Windows RT, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry. Besides remote support, you can also use TeamViewer for file transfers, remote printing, or to access unattended computers, servers, Android devices, point-of-sale devices, or public displays.

            2. Chrome Remote Desktop

            If you use the Chrome web browser or own a Chromebook, Chrome Remote Desktop is arguably the most straightforward remote access software tool you can use to access your devices remotely. Developed by Google and available as a Chrome app, this remote access software tool uses a proprietary protocol developed by Google to transmit the keyboard and mouse events, video, and audio from one computer to another.

            Once you’ve installed Chrome Remote Desktop on your computer, you can begin sharing your desktop simply by giving access to anyone you want. All connections are fully secured, so there’s no reason to worry about someone intercepting your remote desktop session and stealing sensitive information from you. Chrome Remote Desktop is free and works on Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android.

            3. Remote Utilities

            Remote Utilities is an advanced remote access software tool with support for Active Directory, which is a directory service that Microsoft developed for the Windows domain networks. The purpose of Active Directory is to, among other things, authenticate and authorize all users and computers in a Windows domain type network. Because Remote Utilities easily integrates into any Active Directory environment, you can use it to administer your entire network with unprecedented comfort.

            Remote Utilities can operate as a 100-percent autonomous remote support solution to comply with the strictest security requirements, and it comes with a useful MSI Configurator utility that allows you to create a custom Host installer for further deployment across your network. You can try Remote Utilities for free for 30 days and use the online License Calculator to find out how much Remote Utilities would cost you after the trial period ends.

            4. UltraVNC

            UltraVNC is an open source remote access software tool aimed at people who desire the greatest amount of control over their remote connections. It uses the VNC protocol, which was originally developed at the Olivetti & Oracle Research Lab in Cambridge and is now available in a number of variants, including the one implemented in UltraVNC.

            UltraVNC works only on Windows and supports various features, such as encryption, file transfers, chat, and multiple authentication methods. To remotely administer one computer from another using UltraVNC, the two computers must be able to directly communicate across a network. This often leads to NAT/firewall issues, making UltraVNC considerably harder to set up than the above-described remote access software tools.

            5. Microsoft Remote Desktop

            Microsoft Remote Desktop is a simple yet powerful application from Microsoft that allows you to connect to a remote PC or virtual apps and desktops. It’s available for all Windows-based devices and work in conjunction with the Remote Desktop assistant, which was added in the Windows 10 Fall Creators update (1709) and is also available as a separate download.

            To enable remote access on Windows, simply select Start and click the Settings icon on the left. Then choose Remote Desktop under the System group and use the slider to enable Remote Desktop. That’s how easy it is to use Microsoft Remote Desktop.

            6. CloudBerry Remote Assistant

            CloudBerry Remote Assistant is an easy-to-use Windows tool for remote control and desktop sharing. After setting up the links between two computers you choose whether you want to give full access or only viewing rights. The SSL-encryption that is used for all communications ensures that all your connections are fully secure.

            The solution brings lots of neat features, such as unattended access, text and voice chat, multi-regional authentication server and file transfer. For instant support, you can establish the connection without installation on the target workstation.CloudBerry Remote Assistant is absolutely free of charge for personal and professional purpose.

                      The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence      Cache   Translate Page      

            by Mike Small

            Famously, in 2014 Prof. Stephen Hawking told the BBC: "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race." The ethical questions around Artificial Intelligence were discussed at a meeting led by the BCS President Chris Rees in London on October 2nd. This is also an area covered by KuppingerCole under the heading of Cognitive Technologies and this blog provides a summary of some of the issues that need to be considered.

            Firstly, AI is a generic term and it is important to understand precisely what this means. Currently the state of the art can be described as Narrow AI. This is where techniques such as ML (machine learning) combined with massive amounts of data are providing useful results in narrow fields. For example, the diagnosis of certain diseases and predictive marketing. There are now many tools available to help organizations exploit and industrialise Narrow AI.

            At the other extreme is what is called General AI where the systems are autonomous and can decide for themselves what actions to take. This is exemplified by the fictional Skynet that features in the Terminator games and movies. In these stories this system has spread to millions of computers and seeks to exterminate humanity in order to fulfil the mandates of its original coding. In reality, the widespread availability of General AI is still many years away.

            In the short term, Narrow AI can be expected to evolve into Broad AI where a system will be able to support or perform multiple tasks using what is learnt in one domain applied to another. Broad AI will evolve to use multiple approaches to solve problems. For example, by linking neural networks with other forms of reasoning. It will be able work with limited amounts of data, or at least data which is not well tagged or curated. For example, in the cyber-security space to be able to identify a threat pattern that has not been seen before.

            What is ethics and why is it relevant to AI? The term is derived from the Greek word “ethos” which can mean custom, habit, character or disposition. Ethics is a set of moral principles that govern behaviour, or the conduct of an activity, ethics is also a branch of philosophy that studies these principles. The reason why ethics is important to AI is because of the potential for these systems to cause harm to individuals as well as society in general. Ethics considerations can help to better identify beneficial applications while avoiding harmful ones. In addition, new technologies are often viewed with suspicion and mistrust. This can unreasonably inhibit the development of technologies that have significant beneficial potential. Ethics provide a framework that can be used to understand and overcome these concerns at an early stage.

            Chris Rees identified 5 major ethical issues that need to be addressed in relation to AI:

            • Bias;
            • Explainability;
            • Harmlessness;
            • Economic Impact;
            • Responsibility.

            Bias is a very current issue with bias related to gender and race as top concerns. AI systems are likely to be biased because people are biased, and AI systems amplify human capabilities. Social media provides an example of this kind of amplification where uncontrolled channels provide the means to share beliefs that may be popular but have no foundation in fact - “fake news”. The training of AI systems depends upon the use of data which may include inherent bias even though this may not be intentional. The training process and the trainers may pass on their own unconscious bias to the systems they train. Allowing systems to train themselves can lead to unexpected outcomes since the systems do not have the common sense to recognize mischievous behaviour. There are other reported examples of bias in facial recognition systems.

            Explanation - It is very important in many applications that AI systems can explain themselves. Explanation may be required to justify a life changing decision to the person that it effects, to provide the confidence needed to invest in a project based on a projection, or to justify after the event why a decision was taken in a court of law. While rule-based systems can provide a form of explanation based on the logical rules that were fired to arrive at a particular conclusion neural network are much more opaque. This poses not only a problem to explain to the end user why a conclusion was reached but also to the developer or trainer to understand what needs to be changed to correct the behaviour of the system.

            Harmlessness – the three laws of robotics that were devised by Isaac Asimov in the 1940’s and subsequently extended to include a zeroth law apply equally to AI systems. However, the use or abuse of the systems could breach these laws and special care is needed to ensure that this does not happen. For example, the hacking of an autonomous car could turn it into a weapon, which emphasizes the need for strong inbuilt security controls. AI systems can be applied to cyber security to accelerate the development of both defence and offence. It could be used by the cyber adversaries as well as the good guys. It is therefore essential that this aspect is considered and that countermeasures are developed to cover the malicious use of this technology.

            Economic impact – new technologies have both destructive and constructive impacts. In the short-term the use of AI is likely to lead to the destruction of certain kinds of jobs. However, in the long term it may lead to the creation of new forms of employment as well as unforeseen social benefits. While the short-term losses are concrete the longer-term benefits are harder to see and may take generations to materialize. This makes it essential to create protection for those affected by the expected downsides to improve acceptability and to avoid social unrest.

            Responsibility – AI is just an artefact and so if something bad happens who is responsible morally and in law? The AI system itself cannot be prosecuted but the designer, the manufacturer or the user could be. The designer may claim that the system was not manufactured to the design specification. The manufacturer may claim that the system was not used or maintained correctly (for example patches not applied). This is an area where there will need to be debate and this should take place before these systems cause actual harm.

            In conclusion, AI systems are evolving but they have not yet reached the state portrayed in popular fiction. However, the ethical aspects of this technology need to be considered and this should be done sooner rather than later. In the same way that privacy by design is an important consideration we should now be working to develop “Ethical by Design”. GDPR allows people to take back control over how their data is collected and used. We need controls over AI before the problems arise.


                      EU hijacking: self-driving car data will be copyrighted...by the manufacturer      Cache   Translate Page      

            Today, the EU held a routine vote on regulations for self-driving cars, when something decidedly out of the ordinary happened...

            The autonomous vehicle rules contained a clause that affirmed that "data generated by autonomous transport are automatically generated and are by nature not creative, thus making copyright protection or the right on databases inapplicable."

            This is pretty inoffensive stuff. Copyright protects creative work, not factual data, and the telemetry generated by your car -- self-driving or not -- is not copyrighted.

            But just before the vote, members of the European Peoples' Party (the same bloc that pushed through the catastrophic new Copyright Directive) stopped the proceedings with a rare "roll call" and voted down the clause.

            In other words, they've snuck in a space for the telemetry generated by autonomous vehicles to become someone's property. This is data that we will need to evaluate the safety of autonomous vehicles, to fine-tune their performance, to ensure that they are working as the manufacturer claims -- data that will not be public domain (as copyright law dictates), but will instead be someone's exclusive purview, to release or withhold as they see fit.

            Who will own this data? It's unlikely that it will be the owners of the vehicles. Just look at the data generated by farmers who own John Deere tractors. These tractors create a wealth of soil data, thanks to humidity sensors, location sensors and torque sensors -- a centimeter-accurate grid of soil conditions in the farmer's own field.

            But all of that data is confiscated by John Deere, locked up behind the company's notorious DRM and only made available in fragmentary form to the farmer who generated it (it comes bundled with the app that you get if you buy Monsanto seed) -- meanwhile, the John Deere company aggregates the data for sale into the crop futures market.

                      The 'Tesla of China' IPO'd last month in the US — take a look inside the swanky clubhouses it's using to try to lure wealthy people to buy its cars      Cache   Translate Page      

            WilliamLI.JPG

            • The Chinese electric-car startup Nio, which has been touted as the "Tesla of China," went public in the US last month.
            • The company is competing with Tesla in China, where the American automaker generated $2 billion in sales last year.
            • Nio is trying to win over customers with perks like exclusive clubhouses for customers known as Nio Houses, which are a cross between a coworking space, a cafe, a daycare center, and an event space.
            • I recently got a look inside the Nio House in the heart of Beijing. It was a calm, inviting space that would be a great place to stop by for a breather before or after a long day at work.

            The Chinese electric-car startup Nio, which has been touted as the "Tesla of China," went public in the US last month. The company raised $1 billion from the offering, falling short of its $1.8 billion target.

            While Nio held its initial public offering in the US, its target market is in China, where it is attempting to beat out Tesla to become the country's top electric-vehicle manufacturer. Last year, Tesla generated $2 billion in sales in China, double what it made there in 2016.

            Nio launched its $65,000 ES8 electric SUV in December and began shipping it to customers in June. It's officially game on.

            Tesla has a nearly five-year head start in China, but Nio is hoping it can steal a page out of Apple's playbook to win over wealthy Chinese consumers by centering on the tech industry idea of user experience.

            "If we believe the car itself is a user touchpoint — one of many touchpoints a company can provide with its users — I think the mobile internet would be the applicable business model in the auto industry," CEO William Li told Business Insider this past spring.

            A major part of that strategy is offering its customers numerous perks to get them hooked on the company. The biggest yet is a network of swanky clubhouses called Nio Houses, designed to be Nio drivers' home away from home, wherever they take their cars.

            I recently got a look inside the company's Nio House in the heart of Beijing. Here's what it was like.

            In December, Nio launched its first production car, the ES8, a seven-seat electric SUV with 220 miles of range. In June, it started shipping the cars to customers who preordered. It costs about $65,000 before subsidies provided by the Chinese government.



            While the company said it planned to launch a car in the US in 2020, its goal is beating Tesla in China, where the American company generated $2 billion in sales last year. Nio is working on several other cars, including the more affordable ES6 and this Eve autonomous concept car.



            But a huge part of the company's strategy is focusing on "user experience," Izzy Zhu, Nio's vice president of user development, told Business Insider. Like Tesla, Nio sells directly to customers at its locations, rather than through third-party dealerships.

            TwitterFacebook

            Waymo, Alphabet's self-driving car division, keeps racking up the miles.

            On Wednesday, the company announced it had hit 10 million robot car-driven miles on public roads across 25 cities in states like California, Arizona, and Michigan.

            In August, Waymo announced it had reached the 8 million mile mark. Just months before in June, it was at 7 million miles. In less than half a year, the company has tested an additional 3 million miles on public roads.

            According to CEO John Krafcik, if you add in simulated rides on a computer, not real roads, Waymo has driven 7 billion miles. Those 10 million daily miles help challenge the self-driving software and put it in situations both new and old.  Read more...

            GM Cruise Automation Chevy Bolt

            • Waymo, Cruise, Intel/Mobileye, and Tesla are the major contestants in the self-driving car race.
            • Each has developed a different business model.
            • Waymo and GM are using laser-radar technology, while Mobileye and Tesla are relying on cameras and sensors.


            We're quite close to witnessing the arrival of widespread self-driving technologies that consumers can actually experience. 

            Alphabet's Waymo and General Motors' Cruise are planning to launch ride-hailing services in major cities in 2019. Waymo is already testing the service in Phoenix, and Cruise has been experimenting in San Francisco.

            Meanwhile, Intel bought Mobileye last year, and the tech giant is aiming to provide self-driving technology to automakers, building on its existing expertise. 

            Tesla is of course also in the picture, with its Autopilot technology.

            Not all self-driving systems and business plans are the same, however. In fact, Waymo, Cruise, Intel/Mobileye, and Tesla are each taking different approaches to autonomy. 

            Here's how they break down:

            FOLLOW US: On Facebook for more car and transportation content!

            Waymo has the most miles driven under its belt, but it has to partner with automakers to have vehicles.

            After testing, testing, prototyping, testing, and then testing some more, what was formerly known as the Google Car project had a lot of observers wondering if Waymo would ever be able to commercialize the millions of miles it had racked up over nearly a decade.

            That question was answered in early 2018 when Waymo revealed a business plan to launch a ride-hailing service in several US cities. CEO John Krafcik also maintained that Waymo could use its technology for logistics and delivery services, help mass-transit to solve end-of-trip problems, and possibly even license the self-driving system to other players.

            Waymo has developed what it calls a "driver," which is a combination of software, sensors, and critically, laser-radars (lidar). The idea is that this driver can be installed on any vehicle, from a passenger car to a large over-the-road semi truck.

            Of course, Waymo doesn't actually build any vehicles, so for the plan to work, the company has been signing up partners: Chrysler and Jaguar Land Rover.



            Cruise has the major advantage of being part of one of the world's biggest automakers.

            Cruise was acquired by GM in 2016, to a total price of $1 billion with hiring costs and expansion spending baked into the deal. 

            The division is now worth close to $15 billion, after follow-on investments from Japan's SoftBank and Honda.

            GM Cruise is currently building self-driving technology into a fleet of all-electric Chevy Bolts that will form the backbone of a ride-hailing service rolling out in US cities in 2019. GM will also partner with Honda to create an all-new platform for Cruise that will be a purpose-built autonomous vehicle, rather than an adaptation of an existing car.

            Cruise is focusing on the urban environment and, like Waymo, is leaning on lidar while also outfitting its vehicles with other types of sensors and cameras. But the secret sauce it integrated manufacturing at an industrial scale — something that GM has been doing successfully for 100 years.



            Intel/Mobileye is something of an outlier, but it has plenty of high-tech credibility.

            Intel bought Israel's Mobileye in 2017 for $15.3 billion. Infamously, Mobileye powered the early versions of Tesla's Autopilot, before a spat between the companies led Tesla to go it alone.

            Mobileye uses a visual, camera-based approach to self-driving tech that differs from he core of what Waymo and Cruise are doing. Mobileye also has to act as a supplier to clients, rather than being able to assemble its own vehicles.

            This makes it sort like Waymo to Tesla's GM, as far as the camera-and-sensors approach goes. The pluses here are that visual tech can work in environments that lidar doesn't like, such as bad weather.

            Visual technology can also be cheaper — much cheaper — than lidar, while also being less obtrusive for vehicle design. But to make it work, the self-driving part demands a massive amount of computing power, to crunch all that visual data.

                      Waze is launching its carpool service nationally      Cache   Translate Page      

            Google now provides commuters around the country with a way to find a ride to work. On Wednesday, the company’s mapping app, Waze, opened up its Carpool service to the rest of the U.S.

            Waze is best known as a crowdsourced live-mapping app. It has 110 million active users around the country. Its Carpool app first launched in 2016 in San Francisco. In the last year, the company has expanded the service to 13 states, including the rest of California, Texas, Washington, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Nevada. It’s also launched the app in Israel and Brazil and has plans to bring this service to Europe.

            The Carpool app allows people to search for people near them who are heading to the same area for work, or even to the same office, and then share the cost of a commute.

            “We tried to build a cheaper version of a ride-hail app,” says Noam Bardin, CEO of Waze, of the company’s initial efforts, “but what we missed was the human element of it.” In March, the company relaunched the app with new filters to refine the search process, making it easier for people to find rides with people within their network of friends or colleagues. It also introduced ratings and the choice to choose the gender of the driver. Already 1.3 million people have said they’d be interested in listing themselves as drivers on the platform. In order to drive growth, Waze also partners with government agencies, schools, and companies to rally employees and students to carpool on the platform.

            The fundamental task that Waze aims to solve is traffic reduction. “We don’t believe there’s going to be a big government investment or technology that’s going to solve this,” says Bardin.

            Waze hasn’t attracted the same kind of attention as some of Google’s other projects, like its self-driving car project, Waymo, for example. The latter frequently touts its miles driven on public roads (10 million as of today) and its virtual miles driven (7 billion). Meanwhile, its pilot self-driving ride service in Arizona, which caters to some 400 riders, understandably draws a lot of attention.

            But Waze is just as interesting. The service, now national, competes with both Lyft and Uber, which offer their own shared ride options for commuter crowds. Of course, ride-hail platforms differ from Waze. Drivers on Waze Carpool are not professionals, for instance. They’re just regular people. And riders don’t pay fares; they essentially pay for gas. Moreover, Waze does not take a cut of the money that flows from rider to driver, though Bardin says it will once the service gets enough density.

            “I think there are really nice ad opportunities for riders,” says Josh Fried, head of Waze Carpool. “This is just me spitballing, but you could show a rider a two-minute movie preview, like a trailer, paid for by a movie theater that subsidizes that ride. That’s not something we could do with drivers.”

            The platform also gives Google access to crowdsourced data around routes, commutes, traffic, and information on riders, drivers, and what makes for a good group trip. Both Lyft and Uber have touted that kind of data as vital in a world where cars will drive themselves. Waze and Waymo don’t work together in any capacity right now. But down the road, it’s easy to see how Waymo’s autonomous cars might make their way into the Waze carpool network.

            “We hope to get there,” says Bardin of working with Waymo, but notes that it’s still early days for both companies, and it doesn’t make sense to waste resources on working together.

            Bardin’s bigger vision is that Waze will become a more all encompassing transit app. He says that one day, Waze could be used to book an entire commute, allowing customers to match with a carpool partner as well as buy fares for mass transit. In the meantime, Waze is focused on giving cities and commuters a way to help reduce traffic today by pooling together.

                      EU hijacking: self-driving car data will be copyrighted...by the manufacturer      Cache   Translate Page      

            Today, the EU held a routine vote on regulations for self-driving cars, when something decidedly out of the ordinary happened...

            The autonomous vehicle rules contained a clause that affirmed that "data generated by autonomous transport are automatically generated and are by nature not creative, thus making copyright protection or the right on databases inapplicable."

            This is pretty inoffensive stuff. Copyright protects creative work, not factual data, and the telemetry generated by your car -- self-driving or not -- is not copyrighted.

            But just before the vote, members of the European Peoples' Party (the same bloc that pushed through the catastrophic new Copyright Directive) stopped the proceedings with a rare "roll call" and voted down the clause.

            In other words, they've snuck in a space for the telemetry generated by autonomous vehicles to become someone's property. This is data that we will need to evaluate the safety of autonomous vehicles, to fine-tune their performance, to ensure that they are working as the manufacturer claims -- data that will not be public domain (as copyright law dictates), but will instead be someone's exclusive purview, to release or withhold as they see fit.

            Who will own this data? It's unlikely that it will be the owners of the vehicles. Just look at the data generated by farmers who own John Deere tractors. These tractors create a wealth of soil data, thanks to humidity sensors, location sensors and torque sensors -- a centimeter-accurate grid of soil conditions in the farmer's own field.

            But all of that data is confiscated by John Deere, locked up behind the company's notorious DRM and only made available in fragmentary form to the farmer who generated it (it comes bundled with the app that you get if you buy Monsanto seed) -- meanwhile, the John Deere company aggregates the data for sale into the crop futures market.

            Join Fred Block as he discusses his new book, Capitalism: The Future of an Illusion.

            Virtually everyone—left, right, and center—believes that capitalist economies are autonomous, coherent, and regulated by their own internal laws. This view is an illusion. The reality is that economies organized around the pursuit of private profit are contradictory, incoherent, and heavily shaped by politics and governmental action. But the illusion remains hugely consequential because it has been embraced by political and economic elites who are convinced that they are powerless to change this system. The result is cycles of raised hopes followed by disappointment as elected officials discover they have no legitimate policy tools that can deliver what the public wants.

            Fred Block is Research Professor of Sociology at U.C. Davis and President of the Center for Engaged Scholarship. His recent books include:The Power of Market Fundamentalism: Karl Polanyi's Critique (with Margaret R. Somers) and State of Innovation: The U.S. Government's Role in Technology Development (with Matthew R. Keller).

                       Robot Butlers Recharge Guest Experience At Vdara Hotel & Spa      Cache   Translate Page      
            Vdara Hotel & Spa welcomes the newest additions to its team with Fetch and Jett - two Relay robots responsible for delivering snacks, sundries, and even spa products directly to guest suites. These talented bots work alongside their human colleagues to transport an array of frequently forgotten and requested amenities including shaving and dental kits as well as tasty bites and drinks from Market Café. "Fetch and Jett are a fun and convenient addition to our team at Vdara. Guests enjoy the novelty of having their morning coffee and other items delivered by a robot, which frees up time for the rest of our staff to focus their energy on requests that require a higher level of service," said Vdara General Manager Mary Giuliano. "We're committed to creating special experiences for each guest, and I'm certain this will be a memorable one."Designed and built by robot developer Savioke, Fetch and Jett are fully autonomous indoor delivery robots that use advanced technology to seamlessly navigate around people and objects. The robots can prioritize multiple requests and wirelessly communicate with the hotel's systems - even operating the elevators autonomously. Upon receiving a request, a hotel employee will load items into the robot's compartment before inputting the guest's room number and hitting the "GO" button. Its secure, tamper-proof lid prevent items from being removed until the robot reaches its destination.Fetch and Jett will call a guest's room when they arrive and once the door opens, their lids will automatically unlock for guests to retrieve their snacks and travel kits. After removing their items, Fetch and Jett will ask the guest for feedback on their service before traveling back to their docking stations - typically taking less than five minutes to complete a delivery. As a hat-tip to the property's dog-friendly policy, Fetch and Jett's exterior resembles the coats of different canine breeds. The helpful (and housebroken) robots provide a fun and refined experience for guests at the hotel and spa.

            "Annexation didn’t happen. Else we’d heard about it in the news and from The Hague. But in order to hear from them there must first be an accuser. Nobody accused Russia of annexation." Except there were accusers, and The Hague did investigate. I quote from their 2016 report into the annexation, written by ICC Prosecutor <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatou_Bensouda" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow">Fatou Bensouda</a>: <em>According to information received, the situation in the Crimea and Sevastopol is equivalent to the international armed conflict between Ukraine and the Russian Federation. This international armed conflict started not later than February 26, when the Russian Federation employed members of its armed forces to gain control over parts of the territory of Ukraine <strong>without the consent of the government of Ukraine.</strong></em> (emphasis mine) The report goes on to state that the law on international armed conflict has applied to the situation in the Crimea since March 18, 2014, and that according to that law, Russia's presence in the Crimea and Sevastopol can be considered an occupation. As to whether or not shooting took place, that is arguable. All we do know is around 6 deaths occurred during the initial Feb-March 2014 occupation period, and subsequent to that date, the death toll has risen, including 298 souls aboard flight MH-17, which Dutch and Australian investigations occurred as a result of the conflict, and by a Russian weapons system moved into Crimea as a part of the occupation, and possibly even operated by Russian forces. It's not unfair to state that had Russia not opted to seize Crimea, that aircraft would not have been brought down. "What happened was a recession: Crimean people (80% Russians) wanted to get away from the broke and sad and openly nazi gov’ment of Ukraine, declared themselves independent, and then asked to be accepted as part of the Russian Federation. That was gladly accepted by the Kremlin." This is at best a gross over-simplification which misses a number of actual facts: <ul> <li>Following the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Ukraine was recognised as an independent nation, and Crimea an autonomous legislative state within that nation. This was confirmed by the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budapest_Memorandum_on_Security_Assurances" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow">Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances</a> (Dec 1994), of which Russia was a signatory, which underlined Ukraine's territorial integrity. </li> <li>Russia additionally signed two treaties (1997 and 2010) recognising Crimea as an integral part of Ukraine (treaties related to the leasing of naval facilities at Sevastopol)</li> <li>From 2010 through February 2014 (the time of the invasion), Ukraine was under the leadership of pro-Russian Viktor Fedorovych Yanukovych. When he came to power, Ukraine was already in negotiations with the EU to establish an <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukraine%E2%80%93European_Union_Association_Agreement" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow">Association Agreement</a>, which was popular with the Ukrainian people right across the country, and seen as a means of both increasing Ukraine's status and economic independence.</li> <li>After taking office, Yanukovych sought closer ties with Russia over the EU deal. He eventually rejected the EU agreement in November 2013, favouring a Russian financial bail-out.</li> <li>This prompted protests right across the Ukraine from December 2013 through February 2014.</li> <li>On February 21st, 2014, Yanukoych fled Kiev to Moscow a day ahead of a Ukrainian parliamentary vote that would have removed him from office.</li> <li>It was this event - not concern for the well-being of the people in Crimea - that sparked the Russian decision to annexe Crimea, which commenced one month later.</li> <li>As noted above, the move by Russia was seen as illegal by the international community (north, south, east and west with only 26 UN nations voting in favour of Russia's actions over all three UN resolutions on the matter), the EU and The Hague, all of which have referred to the move as both an annexation and an occupation. </li> <li>The post-invasion "referendum" into the will of the people of Crimea has been widely discredited as little not than a Russian exercise in propaganda</li> </ul>

            1-1. 소프트뱅크, 자율주행 자동차 서비스 개발을 위해 도요타와 손잡다

            출처 : Getty Images


            소프트뱅크가 자율주행 자동차 서비스 시장에 뛰어들었습니다. 바로 도요타와의 조인트벤처 설립인데요. 소프트뱅크는 이전에 우버에 투자했었고, 그 외에도 중국의 디디추싱, 동남아시아의 Grab등에 투자했습니다. 하지만 이번 투자는 다소 맥락이 다른데요. 소프트뱅크의 IoT기술을 도요타의 connected vehicle 플랫폼과 결합하여 새로운 자율주행 자동차 서비스를 출시하기 위한 것이라고 합니다.


            'Mobility network'에서 이름을 따와, MONET이라고 하는 이 조인트벤처는 근본적으로 자율주행 자동차를 활용해 "시간에 딱 맞춘(just in time)"서비스에 초점을 맞출 것이라고 합니다. 음식을 집으로 배달시키는 것과 같은 기존의 주문형(on-demand) 서비스에서 더 나아간 형태의, "이동 중 일어나는(in transit) 서비스"라고 합니다. 음식을 주문하는 동시에 이동형 주방에서 요리되어 배달된다거나, 내부에서 시술이 가능한 응급차, 이동형 사무실(mobile office) 등이 그 예시입니다. 


            도요타의 배터리 기반 e-팔레트(Palette) 전기 자동차를 사용하고, 2020년대 후반기에 출시하는 것이 계획이라고 하는데요. 소프트뱅크는 우선 일본 내수에 초점을 맞추되, 전세계 시장으로의 확장은 추후에 고려할 것이라고 밝혔습니다. 



            도요타는 올해 초 3.0 레벨의 자율주행 자동차를 발표하고, 28억달러 수준의 회사를 출범해 자율주행 소프트웨어를 개발하는 등 자율주행 부분에서 많은 성과를 거두고 있는데요. 특히 후자의 경우 10억달러에 달하는 지원을 받는 도요타 리서치 기관과 협력하면서 당사의 자율주행 기술을 앞당기고 있습니다. 소프트뱅크 또한 중국의 바이두와 함께 자율주행 버스를 개발한 바 있습니다. 


            소프트뱅크는 Uber에 5억달러를, Grab에 1억 달러를 투자하는 등 차량 호출(ride-hailing) 서비스에 많은 관심을 보여 왔습니다. 도요타는 1월에 있었던 CES에서 아마존, 우버, 디디추싱, 마즈다, 피자헛 등과 배달을 위한 자율주행 셔틀을 개발중임을 밝힌 바 있습니다. 자율주행 자동차를 비롯하여 모빌리티 시장에서의 확장을 위해 아낌없이 투자하고 활동하는 두 기업의 만남이 어떤 변화를 몰고 올지 기대가 됩니다.

            1-2. 혼다와 GM, 자율주행 자동차 개발을 위해 협력

            출처 : Techcrunch


            혼다와 GM이 GM의 자율주행 부문인 Cruise사의 자동차 개발을 위해 협력한다고 합니다. 혼다는 이번 협정으로 27억 5천만달러를 투자한다고 하는데요. 향후 12년간 20억 달러를 투자하고, 즉각적이고 직접적인 투자에 7억 5천만 달러가 투입된다고 합니다. 이는 Cruise의 기업가치를 12억 6천만 달러로 부상시키고, 혼다는 이번 투자로 Cruise사 주식의 5.7퍼센트 지분을 가져가게 됩니다. 


            이 협정은 5월에 있었던 22억 5천만 달러에 달하는 소프트뱅크의 비전펀드 투자 다음으로 큰 협정이라고 볼 수 있는데요. GM 회장 Dan Ammann에 따르면, 이번 투자로 인해 개발될 자율주행 차량은 "미래 이동수단의 새로운 진화가 될"것이며, 대량 생산되어 범용적으로 사용될 것이라고 합니다. 


            출처 : Autocar


            Cruise의 창립자이자 CEO인 Kyle Vogt는 TechCrunch와의 전화를 통해 공간 효율적인 디자인에 있어 혼다의 전문성을 언급했다고 하는데요. "차량을 처음부터 완전히 새로 디자인할 기회가 주어졌다고 합시다. 그 경우, 우리는 '저기 저 자율주행 자동차에서 뭘 어떻게 개선하고 바꾸지?'라는 생각을 하지 않습니다. 최대한 문제를 이리저리 뒤집어보고, 가장 본질적인 원칙을 기반으로 어떤 이동 수단을 만들지 고민합니다"라고 했다고 합니다.


            Techcrunch에 의하면 Vogt은 안전성이 검증되는대로 가능한 빨리 자율주행 자동차를 출시하고자 합니다. GM Cruise는 2019년에 자율주행 자동차 기반 ride-hailing(차량 호출) 서비스를 출시할 계획이라고 합니다. 아마도 첫 출발지는 Cruise의 본사가 있는 센프란시스코가 될 확률이 높습니다.

            GM과 혼다는 이미 2020년까지 수소연료시스템을 개발하기 위한 합작 투자사를 가지고 있으며, 뿐만 아니라 2018년 6월 협정에서는 혼다가 GM의 자율주행 자동차를 위해 개발된 배터리와 모듈을 사용하도록 한다는 내용이 있었을 정도로 두 회사의 관계는 가까워진 상태입니다. 


            사실 혼다는 2016년 말 즈음, Waymo와 협력하고 있었는데요. 당시 어떻게 Waymo의 기술력을 혼다의 자동차에 적용할 수 있을지에 대한 논의가 비공식적으로 진행되었다고 합니다. 현재까지 두 회사의 협력이 유효한지는 알 수 없으나, 지금으로서 혼다는 GM과 Cruise와의 협력에 힘을 싣고 있는 것으로 보입니다.

            1-3. 미국 안전법, 무인 자동차의 도로주행을 위해 개선될 예정

            출처 : Wired


            현재 미국의 안전법 상으로는, 자동차는 반드시 전통적인 컨트롤, 예를 들어 스티어링휠, 백미러 등의 거울, 페달 등을 갖추고 있어야만 공공 도로에서 주행이 가능합니다. 하지만 미국 교통부에서 최근 발표한 계획에 따르면, 완전 무인 자동차를 위한 포문을 열기 위해 법 개정을 준비 중인 것으로 밝혀졌습니다.


            교통부 당국은, 고속도로교통안전국을 통해 자율주행 자동차에 적용하기 위해"현재 안전 기준의 정당성과 당위성에 대해 재고하고자" 한다며, 80페이지 분량의 문서를 발표했습니다. 특히, 규제 당국은 안전 기준을 바꿈으로써 "자율주행 자동차 기술을 받아들이고 인간 운전자가 반드시 존재해야만 하는 기준들에 예외를 둘 수 있는 가능성을 엿보고자"한다고 밝혔습니다. 


            안전법의 변화는 알파벳의 Waymo, GM등 자율주행 자동차 기술 개발의 최전선에 있는 기업들이 실제로 도로에 자동차를 내놓을 수 있는 초석을 제공한다고 볼 수 있는데요. 개정된 "자율주행 자동차 3.0"은 연방정부가 자율주행 기술 개발과 안전한 적용을 위해 제공하는 세 번째 버전의 가이드라인입니다. 


            출처 : The Verge


            교통부 장관 Elaine Chao는 워싱턴에서 열린 행사에서  "자율주행 자동차는 수천명의 목숨을 살릴 가능성을 품고 있습니다." 라고 말했습니다. 그는 매년 공개되는 자동차 사고 리포트를 인용했는데요. 2017년에는 37,000명이 넘는 사망자가 발생했다고 합니다. 자동차 회사들은 현재 75개의 안전 기준을 통과해야 합니다. 대부분의 기준들이 면허를 소지한 운전자가 있을 것을 염두해 두고 있는데요. 1966년 의회가 국립 도로 자동차 안전법을 시행함에 따라 모든 자동차들은 이러한 안전 기준을 따르고 있습니다. 


            자율주행 자동차를 위해 이렇게 오랜 시간 따라온 규제를 바꿔가는 것은 자율주행 기술에 대한 회의적인 시각을 극복해야 한다는 점도 크게 작용하는데요. 지난 3월, 우버의 자율주행 자동차가 사고로 보행자를 죽음에 이르게 함으로써 이러한 시각은 아직 없어지지 않고 있습니다. 자동차 안전 센터(Center for Auto Safety)의 안전 담당 대변인은 " 자율 주행 자동차와 운전 보조 시스템에 의한 사고와 죽음에도 불구하고 도로교통부는 산업과 기술의 편에만 서서 규제 해소가 안전을 위한 길이라고 주장한다"고 밝혔습니다.


            출처 : lex transport


            한편 교통부 장관 Chao는 이런 회의적 시각에 대해 "기술이 개발된다고 하더라도, 사람들이 그것을 받아들이느냐는 다른 문제다. 회사들은 대중의 안전에 대한 걱정에 대해 알 필요가 있고 대중이 받아들이지 않는 한 어떤 기술도 실현되지 못할 것"이라고 발표했습니다. 그는 이어서 트럼프 정부가 주장하는 "규제가 혁신을 막는다"라는 문장을 반복하며 당국의 신기술에 대한 접근은 기술 중립적임을 밝혔습니다. 


            Chao는 자율주행 자동차의 영향에 대한 연구를 위해 교통부를 비롯해 노동, 상무, 보건복지부와의 협력이 있을 것이라고 발표했는데요. 이 연구를 통해 자율주행 기술이 대중화 되었을 때의 근로자와 고용자를 도울 것이라고 합니다. 이러한 법 개선과 정부 차원의 지원이 앞으로 완전 자율주행 자동차 기술과 시장에 어떤 영향을 줄 것인지 그 변화가 주목되는 바입니다.

            2. Iron Ox, 로봇이 농사짓는 완전 자동화 농장을 선보이다

            출처 : Iron Ox


            2015년에 설립되어 농장 완전 자동화 시스템을 개발해온 스타트업 Iron Ox가 드디어 첫번째 실내용 자동화 기기를 선보였습니다. 현재 이미 미국 농업 시장에 자리잡은 대규모 온실 시스템을 대체하기는 힘들지만, 적어도 대규모 농장 재배가 힘든 도심 근교에서 분산형 소규모 자동화농장을 구축하는 데에 큰 도움이 될 것으로 보입니다. 


            현재 미국 각지에서 생산되는 녹색 채소들은 겨울이 되면 대부분 애리조나와 캘리포니아에서만 재배됩니다. 날씨가 너무 추운 탓에 다른 곳에서는 농장 수익이 나지 않기 때문입니다. 그 때문에 겨울에는 녹색 채소들이 소비자들의 식탁에 오르기까지 2000마일 이상을 이동해야 할 때가 많은데요. 이 과정에서 발생하는 유통비용과 품질저하 문제는 굳이 자세히 언급하지 않아도 쉽게 예상할 수 있을 것입니다. Iron Ox는 이런 비효율성에 초점을 맞추었습니다. 만약 완전 자동화된 소규모 농장 시스템을 만든다면, 도심 주변에서 손쉽게 녹색 채소를 재배할 수 있기 때문입니다. 


            출처 : Iron Ox


            Iron Ox의 강점은 무엇보다도 효율적인 재배 방식에 있습니다. Iron Ox의 자동화 농장은 일반 외부 농장에서 키우는 녹색 채소 재배량보다 30배 더 뛰어난 수득률을 자랑하는데요. 녹색 채소들을 직접 보고, 수확해야 할 시기를 굳이 하나 하나 체크하지 않아도 자동으로 수확할 수 있는 로봇팔이 있기 때문입니다. 


            Iron Ox의 자동화 시스템은 로봇팔 위에 부착된 스테레오 카메라로 촬영된 정보를 클라우드에 저장하고, 이들을 분석하여 언제 수확할지를 식물 각각마다 판별합니다. 이들은 인공 LED만을 이용하여 재배하는 형태가 아닌, 천장을 뚫어놓아 햇빛과 고효율 LED를 동시에 활용하는 방법을 사용하였습니다. 이와 같은 체계적인 시스템 덕에 수익성을 확실히 보장하면서도 자동적으로 운영이 가능한 자동화 농장을 만들 수 있게 되었습니다. 


            출처 : Iron Ox


            Iron Ox의 농장 자동화 시스템은 소규모 농장주들 뿐만 아니라, 요리사의 니즈까지도 모두 충족시킵니다. 최근 캘리포니아 농장주들은 비싼 노동력으로 인해 노동력의 부족을 호소해 왔습니다. 그와 동시에 주방장들은 공급이 안정적이고, 안전성이 보장된 양질의 재료를 원합니다. Iron Ox는 이러한 양측의 니즈를 수용하여, 자동화 시스템을 통해 노동력 부족 문제를 해소하고 채소의 품질 항상성을 보장합니다. 


            일전에 채소를 가판대에서 기르는 슈퍼마켓과 수직농업의 미래 글을 통해 다양한 스마트 농장 기법과 농업의 비전에 관해 에티에서도 소개해드린 바 있는데요. Iron Ox의 완전 자동화 농장이 보여주듯이, 앞으로 농장에는 더 이상 사람이 필요 없어질지도 모릅니다. 물론 작물의 상태는 최상을 유지하면서 말이죠. Iron Ox의 향후 행보를 통해 소규모 자동화농장의 전망을 논해보는 것도 나쁘지 않을 것 같습니다.

            3. Oracle x Alpha Acid Brewing co., 맥주 공급망 관리에 블록체인을 적용하다

            출처 : Navms


            다가오는 10월 22일부터 25일, Oracle Code One 컨퍼런스가 San Fransisco에서 열릴 예정인데요. 컨퍼런스가 진행되는 동안 San Fransisco의 로컬 맥주 회사인 Alpha Acid Brewing Co.가 부스에서 맥주를 무료로 제공한다고 합니다. 뜬금없이 아직 시작도 안 한 컨퍼런스의 소식을 왜 전하는지, 더구나 Oracle 소프트웨어와 관련 있는 소식도 아닌 무료 맥주에 관한 이야기를 왜 꺼내는지 의아하실텐데요. Alpha Acid Brewing Co.는 Oracle의 Oracle Blockchain Cloud Service를 베타 테스팅 중입니다. 이들은 Oracle의 서비스를 통해 맥주 양조 프로세스의 공급망 관리에 IoT와 블록체인 기술을 활용하고 있습니다.


            Alpha Acid의 로컬 양조장에 비치된 맥주 발효 탱크들에는 IoT 센서가 달려 있어서 온도, 이산화탄소 농도, 압력이 모두 실시간으로 측정되고, 이는 Oracle 클라우드에 저장됩니다. Oracle AppsLab 이머징 기술팀의 UX 디자이너 수석 Mark Vilrokx은 "맥주가 미지근한지 확인하기 위해 양조업자가 맥주를 손에 부어보는 것이 업계 종사자들의 관례였다고 합니다. 과학적인 방법은 아니지요. 여기서 좀 더 나아가 맥주를 컵에 따라서 온도계로 온도를 측정한다 하더라도, 측정하는 사이에 탱크 안의 맥주 온도가 급격히 변할 수 있기 때문에 그 또한 엄밀하지 않습니다."라며 실시간 데이터의 중요성을 강조했습니다. 


            또한, Oracle에서 제공하는 챗봇 API를 통해 맥주를 시음하고 평점을 매길 수도 있는데요. 이러한 데이터 또한 모두 클라우드에 저장되고, 챗봇을 통해 소비자는 자신이 시음한 맥주 또는 다른 맥주와 관련된 질문을 하고 답변을 얻을 수 있습니다. Alpha Acid는 어떠한 조건에서 고객의 만족도가 가장 높은지 분석함으로써, 데이터를 기반으로 제품의 퀄리티를 조정할 수 있는 것입니다.  



            기존의 공급망 관리에 블록체인 기술을 적용함으로써, 소비자들은 생산 과정의 투명성을 보장받을 수 있고 Alpha Acid는 보다 효율적인 재고 관리를 할 수 있습니다. Alpha Acid의 양조 프로세스의 모든 참여자 데이터가 Oracle 블록체인 클라우드에 올라가게 되는데요. 홉을 조달하는 농장, 효모를 조달하는 관리소, 몰트를 조달하는 농장 등과의 거래 기록(일시, 수량, 공급물품과 관련된 기타 데이터)이 모두 기록됩니다. 생산자 뿐만 아니라, 소비자들도 맥주에 부착된 QR코드를 스캔함으로써 원산지를 추적할 수 있게 됩니다.


            블록체인 기술을 잘 모르시는 분들은 기존의 공급망 데이터베이스 관리에 비해 무엇이 좋아졌다는 것인지 잘 이해가 안 되실텐데요. 데이터베이스는 분명한 관리 주체가 있고, 그 주체가 원한다면 조작할 수도 있습니다. 예를 들어 효모에 문제가 있어 맥주의 품질에 문제가 발생했다고 합시다. Alpha Acid는 공급망의 각 단계 별 조달 일시와 수량, 당시 기온, 발효 시간, 미생물 수치 등의 기록을 추적해야 합니다. 하지만 효모 관리소에 장부를 넘겨달라고 요청해도, 책임 회피를 위해 조작된 장부를 받을 가능성이 있습니다. 거래 일시와 수량 등의 데이터를 조작하고 잡아떼는 것이지요. 


            하지만 블록체인을 적용할 경우, 쉽게 말해서, 홉 농장, 효모 관리소, 몰트 농장, Alpha Acid가 각자 동일한 장부를 소지하고 이들 중 누군가의 거래가 발생할 때마다 각자의 장부에 기록하는 것입니다. 이러한 거래 블록들은 시간 순서대로 마치 체인처럼 연결되는데요. 이전의 거래 데이터를 조작하려면 모든 장부의 수많은 블록들을 모두 조작해야 하고, 조작하는 와중에도 거래가 발생하여 체인에 블록들이 추가되기 때문에 사실 상 조작이 불가능하다는 것입니다. 그 때문에 투명성이 보장되고 신뢰관계가 구축되는 것이지요.

            블록체인으로 인해 신뢰관계가 구축됨으로써 위와 같은 상황에서 발생하는 불필요한 법률 및 보험 부문의 지출이 방지될 수 있습니다. 시장에서 문제가 발생하여 리콜을 하게 될 경우, 기록된 데이터를 기반으로 리콜 수량을 최소화할 수 있고 책임 소재를 분명하게 따질 수 있습니다. 또한, 이전에는 '신뢰'를 구축하기 위해 수많은 인증서들이 필요했는데요. 품질 보증서와 같은 문서들의 경우 이를 처리하는 데에 드는 비용과 시간 또한 상당합니다. 이러한 것들 또한 불필요해지는 것입니다. 


            탱크에 맥주가 얼마나 남아 있는지, 금주 수요가 어떤지, 다음 주문을 얼마나 넣어야 하는지 등의 기본적인 물류 관리에 있어, 현실에서는 오차와 변수가 많이 발생하는데요. IoT센서를 통해 데이터의 오차를 줄이고, 블록체인 상에서 traceability를 강화함으로써 변수를 줄일 수 있습니다. 필자는 블록체인이 대단한 신기술이라기보단, "당연한 것을 당연하게" 만들어줄 수 있는 네트워크 기술이라고 생각하는데요. 요즘 미미쿠키의 코스트코 재포장 문제 및 호주의 바늘 딸기 등 식품업계에서 신뢰 문제가 만연합니다. 당연해야 마땅한 것들이 아직 당연하지 않은 지금의 세상을 블록체인이 보다 나은 방향으로 선도할 것이라 기대합니다.

            4. MIT, Google, Cisco와 미국 특허청의 특허 관리 시스템, Prior Art Archive

            출처 : Go Legal


            발명가 A씨가 자신의 특허를 등록하려고 합니다. 특허를 출원하기 위해 A씨는 자신의 기술이 기존의 것들과 어떻게 다른지 자세히 설명해야 합니다. 서류를 건네받은 심사위원들은 기존 기술들 중에 유사한 것이 있는지 확인하고, 어떤 점에서 유사하거나 다른지 기술하며 최종 판단을 내리게 됩니다. 하지만 소프트웨어 부문의 최신 기술들의 경우 심사위원들이 도면을 구하고 기술이 새로운지 여부를 판단하기가 어렵습니다. 그렇게 될 경우 이미 존재하는 기술임에도 불구하고 특허가 발급되거나, 새로운 기술임에도 불구하고 등록 시기를 놓치는 등의 문제가 발생할 수 있습니다.


            이를 해결하기 위해 MIT 미디어랩, Google, Cisco와 미국 특허청(USPTO)이 협업하여 개발한 것이 바로 Prior Art Archive입니다. 지난 10월 3일, 미국 예술 과학 아카데미(American Academy of Arts and Sciences)에서 Prior Art Archive의 런칭 행사가 있었는데요. MIT 미디어랩의 이사 Joi Ito와 미국특허청 이사 Andrei Iancu 등이 참석했습니다. 행사의 라이브 스트리밍 영상은 이곳에서 보실 수 있습니다. 

            출처 : Prior Art Archive


            MIT가 호스팅하는 이 데이터베이스는 Google Patents와 연동되기 때문에 상호 검색이 가능한데요. Prior Art Archive에 게재된 모든 문서들은 구글의 머신러닝 모델을 활용하여 CPC 코드를 부여받게 됩니다. 유럽특허청(EPO)와 미국 특허청(USPTO)이 2013년에 공동 출범한 CPC(Cooperative Patent Classification) 코드를 사용함으로써, 예비 특허 신청자들은 자신의 기술과 가장 관련성 있는 기술을 보다 쉽게 찾을 수 있습니다. 


            Google Patents는 이 외에도 특허 관리 시스템을 더욱 효율적으로 만들기 위해 적극적으로 움직이고 있습니다. 이들은 최근에 TDCommons 웹사이트를 개설하기도 했는데요. 기업들이 각자 보유한 기술 관련 문서들을 TDCommons에 게재함으로써 추후 다른 이들에 의한 특허 신청을 방지하는 식입니다. TDCommons는 특허 심사위원을 비롯한 대중 모두가 열람할 수 있습니다. 또한, Google Patents는 작년에 Google Patents Public Datasets개설하기도 했는데요. 공공정책과 머신러닝 리서치를 비롯한 많은 자료들이 집대성된 데이터베이스입니다. 


            Google Patents 수석 기술자 Ian Wetherbee와 Google Patents 이사 Mike Lee는 Google 공식 블로그를 통해 "우리는 특허의 질을 향상시키고, 전반적인 특허 관리 시스템을 개선하기 위해 끊임없이 기술을 개방하고 자료를 공개하고자 합니다."라고 밝혔습니다. Prior Art Archive를 비롯한 다양한 서비스로 인해 특허 출원인과 심사자가 윈윈(win-win)하는 효율적인 특허 관리 시스템이 점차 자리잡을 것으로 보입니다.

            5. Rethink Robotics, 10년 만에 문을 닫다

            산업용 로봇팔 Bexter와 Sawyer (출처 : The Verge)


            사람과 협업하는 로봇(collaborative robot)을 개발하여 로보틱스 발전에 큰 영향을 주었던 Rethink Robotics가 폐업 소식을 전했습니다. 지난 8월, 소셜로봇 Kuri를 만든 Mayfield Robotics의 생산 중단 소식을 에티가 전해드렸는데요. 연이은 로보틱스 기업의 폐업 소식이 그저 안타까울 따름입니다.


            Rethink Robotics의 설립자인 Rodney Brooks는 이전에 iRobot을 창업하여 로봇청소기를 처음으로 상품화시킨 인물입니다. 그 때문에 Rethink Robotics는 창립된 시점부터 로보틱스 업계에서 많은 주목을 받아왔습니다. 2008년에 Rodney Brooks와 Ann Whitaker가 공동 창립한 이후 Rethink Robotics는 산업용 로봇팔을 출시해왔습니다. 2011년에는 첫번째 산업용 로봇팔인 Baxter를, 2015년에는 그보다 더 작은 버전인 Sawyer를 출시하였습니다. Baxter와 Sawyer는 새로운 작업을 쉽게 학습시킬 수 있고, 머리에 달린 스크린을 통해 작업자들과 소통이 가능하다는 점에서 기존의 산업용 로봇팔 제품들과 차별화되었습니다.


            출처 : The Verge


            작업 학습이 쉽고, 안전하게 사람과의 협업이 가능하다는 점에서 Rethink Robotics는 협업로봇(collaborative robot)이라는 컨셉을 본격적으로 내세웠습니다. 하지만 Baxter와 Sawyer의 판매량이 예상보다 부진함에 따라 자금난을 겪었던 것으로 보입니다. 또한, Universal Robotics와 같은 거대한 경쟁자 또한 매출 부진에 영향을 주었습니다. Rethink Robotics는 최근에 회사 매각을 시도하기도 했지만, 그 또한 실패로 돌아가 최종적으로 폐업을 결정한 것으로 보입니다.


            Rethink Robotics의 CEO Scott Eckert는 "Baxter와 Sawyer는 혁신적인 제품이지만, 상품화되기에는 시기가 적절하지 않았다"라고 발표했습니다. 이어서 그는 "Rethink Robotics가 문을 닫더라도, 그동안 회사에서 만들었던 새로운 로보틱스 컨셉들은 산업 전반에 남아 새로운 혁신을 일으킬 것"이라고 밝혔습니다. 현재 Rethink Robotics는 각종 특허를 비롯한 지적재산권을 정리 중입니다.

            6. STRIVR, GPV로부터 1600만 달러 투자 유치


            STRIVR은 VR 스포츠 훈련 시장의 선두두자입니다. 스탠포드 대학 축구팀의 실력 향상을 위한 VR 훈련 프로젝트에서 시작된 이 기업은 최근 GPV(GreatPoint Ventures)로부터 1600만 달러를 유치했다고 밝혔습니다. 


            STRIVR은 아이스하키(NHL), 프로농구(NBA), 미식축구(NFL) 등 다양한 스포츠 분야에서 훈련용 소프트웨어를 제공하고 있습니다. D일례로, 미국 스키 대표팀은 평창 올림픽을 대비하기 위해 STRIVR와 제휴를 맺어 선수들이 가상현실에서 강원도 정선의 알파인 코스를 반복적으로 익히도록 했습니다


            출처 : STRIVR


            STRIVR은 스포츠뿐만 아니라 직원 교육 부문에서도 진척을 보이고 있습니다. 작년에 미국 월마트는 직원 교육을 위해 STRIVR과 파트너십을 맺었고, 올 연말까지 교육용 프로그램이 담긴 1만 7000대의 VR 헤드셋을 미국 내 지점들에 배치할 것이라고 발표했습니다. 월마트 종업원들은 VR을 통해 다양한 시나리오를 접하게 됩니다. 예를 들어 블랙 프라이데이에 손님들이 몰리는 상황이 주어지고, 이에 대처하는 방법을 연습하게 됩니다.


            VR 트레이닝으로 이미 많은 기업들이 효과를 보고 있습니다. 육류 가공 업체 Tyson food는 STRIVR과 안전 교육 프로그램을 제작하고 직원들을 교육했습니다. 이 결과 2017년도 기준으로 작년 대비 부상 건수가 20퍼센트 감소했으며 교육을 이수한 종업원의 89%가 VR 트레이닝 이후 자신감이 붙었다고 응답했습니다. 

            출처 : STRIVR


            STRIVR의 CEO, Derek Belch에 따르면 포춘 500대 기업에 선정된 27개의 기업이 자사의 고객으로 있으며 이들 기업은 다양한 산업 군에 분포하고 있다고 합니다. VR이라고 하면 보통 게임 요소가 가미된 엔터테인먼트 콘텐츠들을 생각하게 됩니다. 하지만, 현재 실질적으로 수익을 창출하고 시장을 이끄는 것은 엔터프라이즈 교육 분야 입니다. 과거에는 불가능했던 다양한 변수에 대한 훈련들이 VR을 통해 물리적 제약 없이 가능해졌습니다. 엔터프라이즈 분야가 기대와 달리 성장하지 못한 VR 시장을 다시 일으킬 수 있을지 그 행보가 주목됩니다.

            7. 중국과 미국, 증강현실 및 컴퓨터 비전 스타트업 투자 추이 극명하게 갈려

            증강현실 / 컴퓨터 비전 부문의 분기 별 투자 단계 별 총 투자 거래 규모 (출처 : Digi-Capital)


            Digi-Capital의 분석에 따르면 최근 일년 간 미국과 중국의 컴퓨터 비전 및 증강현실/가상현실 업계에 대한 투자 추이가 극명하게 갈리고 있습니다. 지난 12개월 동안 중국의 해당 부문 투자 규모는 39억 달러 규모까지 치솟은 반면, 미국의 투자는 2017년 4분기의 15억 달러에서 올해 3분기 1억2천만 달러로까지 급락하게 되었습니다.


            미국의 VC 업계에 따르면, 현재 미국의 VC 업계는 증강현실을 시도하는 스타트업과 컴퓨터 비전이나 머신러닝을 다루는 스타트업에 대해 상반되는 태도를 취하고 있습니다. 증강현실 스타트업에 대해서는 현재 시장이 초기 단계인 만큼, 당장 수익 창출과 사용자 획득을 할 수 있는 "주요 use case를 위한 모바일 AR 서비스"에 관심이 많다고 합니다. 반면 컴퓨터 비전을 다루는 스타트업에 대해서는 기술의 완성도가 많이 높아진 만큼, 이제 리서치 수준에 머물러있는 스타트업보다는 당장 기존 산업에 영향력을 미칠 수 있는 스타트업을 찾고 있다고 합니다.

            미국(상)과 중국(하)의 분기 별 해당 부문 투자 규모 (출처 : Techcrunch)


            지난 12개월 동안 전세계적으로 해당 부문에 대한 투자는 지속적으로 줄어들어 작년 4분기보다 올해 3분기의 투자 거래 규모가 약 2/3 가량으로 축소되었습니다. 특히 이중에서 시드 투자와 시리즈 A 투자 규모가 가장 많이 줄어든 것이 인상적입니다. 미국의 투자 규모는 특히나 90프로 가량 줄어든 모습을 보였는데요. 한 두 해 전에 증강현실 시장이 뜨거운 관심을 받았던 것에 비해 시장 규모가 좀처럼 크지 않자, 대부분의 미국 투자자들은 시장의 확장을 기다리는 모양새입니다. 


            반면 중국은 투자 규모가 급격히 줄어든 와중에, 대부분의 투자가 장기적인 목표를 지향하는 큰 규모의 시리즈 C 또는 D에 집중된 양상을 보였습니다. 주로 자국의 회사들에 더 투자를 많이 했다고 합니다. 중국은 현재 시장 상황이 어찌됐든, 미래에 반드시 성장할 시장을 장악하기 위해 국내 회사들에게 장거리 경주를 할 수 있는 연료를 채워넣고 있습니다.


            미국과 중국의 거시적 투자 전략의 차이가 향후 몇년 안에 어떤 변화를 만들어낼지 기대해봅니다. 증강현실 업계의 큰손, Apple이 아직 본격적으로 게임에 뛰어들지 않았다는 점이 앞으로의 큰 변수로 작용할 것으로 보입니다.

                      Comment on On Tesla: Open Letter Proposal For Your Consideration by Bernard Bromell      Cache   Translate Page      
            I am confused by the juxtaposition of the opening insideevs remarks and the open letter itself. The opening insideevs remarks says "Given recent interviews where Elon has rightfully pointed out that even if we manage to replace 100% of car sales with electric vehicles, replacing all cars on the road would lag for 25 years while old cars live out their life cycle. " and "The Paris Accord saw 175 countries commit to reduce global emissions and prevent the earth from warming more than 2°C." The just released IPCC report says that emissions have to be about halved in just over 10 years to keep warming to 1.5C. From this it is clear that even if all cars sold were electric right now, it would not be enough to meet the Paris agreement commitments. The open letter then suggests how to build more factories to produce Tesla vehicles. However, from the opening remarks it is clear that this cannot be the solution to keep warming to 2C. So it seems that a non-solution is being proposed to the problem posed. Electric passenger services can reduce emissions in the time frame required. Below is an open letter I posted on OHPEC's website in August: Tesla’s stated mission is: “to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport by bringing compelling mass market electric cars to market as soon as possible.” Tesla has brought such a vehicle to the market with the Model 3, as well as the Model S and Model X. However, sustainable transport is determined not by the number of vehicles sold, but by the distance driven by those vehicles. The greatest distances travelled by a passenger vehicle is done by a passenger service vehicle, such as a taxi. Therefore, the greatest acceleration of sustainable transport is made by accelerating the use of electric vehicles in the passenger service market. Autonomous transport is already in public use. In the next decade it will likely replace full sized bus and train transport. If we are to have electric vehicles provide this transport, rather than fossil fuel vehicles, then we need a large electric fleet, and just as importantly, a ubiquitous full speed charging infrastructure for that fleet. Fossil fuel vehicles already have the required manufacturing capacity and already have a ubiquitous fueling infrastructure. They can easily be deployed once the autonomous systems are available. This deployment, at scale, will start happening in the next year or two. Unfortunately, Tesla explicitly forbids all their vehicles, when used as a taxi, from full speed Supercharging. Tesla will not supply full speed Superchargers to 3rd parties to install and run. Tesla vehicles cannot charge using the new ultrafast CCS or CHAdeMO chargers. This is preventing the building of a Tesla passenger service fleet and the building of the required charging infrastructure. Tesla has been non-negotiable in their position. Tesla will not give any reason for their decision. Tesla needs to revisit their decision. To be blunt, Tesla’s behaviour in this respect, is absolutely contrary to their stated mission, and is no better than that of the oft-criticised ICE vehicle industry standing in the way of a transition to electric vehicles.
