          Gay New Yorker Calls Police On "N-Word" Uber Driver Who's "Racist Against Gay People"      Cache   Translate Page      

A gay New Yorker is going viral for all the wrong reasons.

A YouTube video and GoFundMe campaign have popped up in support of the driver that this gay man says was threatening him.

Before we show you the video, we’ll fill you in on what happened before the video (from what we can gather).

Apparently, this gay man, named Robert Ortiz, got into Lyft with two friends after leaving a gay club. At some point during the drive, the three men asked the driver, named Shan Pepas Lettman, to play music. Lettman declined and an argument followed, which resulted in Lettman stopping the car. At this point, Ortiz picked up his own phone to call the police and Lettman started recording the men as they became more belligerent.

If the video below is too long for you or in case you miss some things, here are a few important lines from Ortiz in the recording.

“I came out of a gay club and your driver is racist against gay people.”

“I called the police to protect myself because I know my legal rights as an American citizen that voted for Trump.

"[Talking to a Lyft representative] I’m not gonna stop talking you piece of sh*t. You're gonna tell me to stop talking? F*** you. I'm gonna wait for the police. [hangs up]"

“I’m gonna make his night a living hell.”

“[After video calling a friend] Yo, Boo, tell me why I’m in a Lyft and the n***a f**king pulled over…The n***a’s recording me without my consent, because I asked for music…"

While posting the video, Pepas simultaneously created a GoFundMe to see if anyone would help his financial troubles.

As Pepas said on the page:

“The video pretty much speaks for itself [as to what happened] but what the video doesn’t show is what happened next. After the end of the video, i had to also call the police for myself expressing my concerns and fear of what will happen if i was not assisted. Luckily there was no physical confrontation but the company i drive with felt it necessary to cancel my account pending investigation.  Unfortunately expenses weren’t suspended and I am left to dig myself out of an awfully stressful predicament. I didn’t ask for this nor did i want this. I know America is better than this and despite the hate we have to deal with from a few, my heart tells me, the world is mostly good. I ask for help, So i can get  myself off the ground and back to providing for my family again. Any and every help offered will be greatly appreciated even the prayers for my family and myself.”

He then later added:

“My name is Shawn Pepas Lettman, I reside in Brooklyn and happy to say still a Lyft driver. I just wanted everyone to know that I really appreciate all your kind words and I really thank each and everyone for their donations. All donations received will assist me in catching up on expenses such as rent and car payments. Also I have heard some rumors about a lawsuit coming my way from the use of the video captured on my phone and I want to be fully prepared if that does happens.”

After the video went viral on YouTube and Reddit, both Lettman and Ortiz were affected by the footage.

Ortiz was reportedly fired from his job at City MD. In addition, he recited his phone number while on camera, a mistake he’d later regret. Apparently, many people who saw the video then called Ortiz and left messages on his voicemail. This got so bad that he later changed his number.

As for Lettman, he received kind words, praise, and donations from the people of the internet. His GoFundMe page has been nearly funded and Lettman left the following update message.

“I really appreciate the out pour of love and support i sincerely appreciate it. My account has been reinstated and i am able to work again. I just wanted to share that bit with everyone.. Thank you!”


          Black Ops 4 tendrá 14 mapas multijugador para lanzamiento      Cache   Translate Page      

Hace un par de semanas, David Vonderhaar de Treyarch dijo que Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, solo contendría 11 mapas multijugador en total. Ahora, una captura de pantalla del menú multijugador del juego ha surgido en línea para contradecir la declaración del empleado del estudio, ya que en realidad habrán 14 mapas en total una vez que el juego llegue a los usuarios. Como se indica en la imagen a continuación, cortesía del Redditor conocido como “thunde-r”, 10 de los mapas que vienen al título son nuevos, y cuatro de ellos, es decir, Firing Range, Jungle, Slums y Summit son remakes de mapas de juegos pasados. Además, los jugadores no tendrán que esperar demasiado hasta que la lista de 14 mapas se expanda, ya que el número aumentará hasta 15 cuando se agregue Nuketown en noviembre. Por el bien de la comparación, el último título de la franquicia de Sledgehammer Games, COD: WW2, solo se lanzó con 10 mapas multijugador, pero fue respaldada por una campaña realizada para un solo jugador. Dado que Black Ops 4 carece de una experiencia en solitario para centrarse en el multijugador, los Zombies y el nuevo modo Blackout, definitivamente tiene sentido que Treyarch ofrezca a los jugadores un impulso en la cantidad de mapas entre los que podrán elegir. Teniendo todo en cuenta, será interesante ver si Treyarch decide aumentar la cantidad de áreas multijugador disponibles en los inevitables paquetes de contenido descargable que vienen para Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. RELACIONADO: VIDEO DISCUTE LA HISTORIA DEL MODO ZOMBIES Los paquetes de expansión anteriores generalmente incluían 4 mapas multijugador y un mapa de Zombies, por lo que quizás el desarrollador ofrezca aún más variedad para los fanáticos en esta ocasión para aumentar así la longevidad del juego. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 se lanzará el 12 de octubre de 2018 para PC, PlayStation 4 y Xbox One.

          Bitfinex Challenges Insolvency Rumors, Provides Proof of Wallet Reserves      Cache   Translate Page      
Bitfinex Solvency

Top-three cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex is pushing back against claims that call its solvency into question.

The Hong Kong-based company released a blog post on October 7, 2017, that states, contrary to recent rumors, it is not insolvent. In its defense, the company provides links to its public wallet addresses, stating that hearsay in spite of these publicly verifiable records is “perhaps indicative of a targeted campaign based on nothing but fiction.”

“Bitfinex is not insolvent, and a constant stream of Medium articles claiming otherwise is not going to change this. As one of only a very few exchanges operating since 2013, with a small team and low operating costs, we do not entirely understand the arguments that purport to show us to be insolvent without providing any explanation about why.”

Over the weekend, a since-removed Medium post by user ProofofResearch warns readers to exit Bitfinex, alleging that complaints of restricted and frozen withdrawals expose its insolvency. The post goes on to air grievances shared on Reddit regarding these withdrawal issues, and the author accuses r/bitfinex moderators of censoring such posts.

“Both fiat and cryptocurrency withdrawals are functioning as normal. Verified Bitfinex users can freely withdraw Euros, Japanese Yen, Pounds Sterling and U.S. Dollars. Complications continue to exist for us in the domain of fiat transactions, as they do for most cryptocurrency-related organisations,” Bitfinex writes in its post.

To further quell community skepticism, Bitfinex offered block explorer links to its bitcoin, ether and eos cold wallet reserves. Not including fiat holdings, the exchange states that these wallets “represent a small fraction of Bitfinex cryptocurrency holdings.”

Collectively, the wallets hold just over $1.5 billion in assets. The majority of this fortune is accrued in the exchange’s bitcoin wallet, which holds 148,467 BTC worth roughly $989 million at current exchange rates. Its second largest holding, the exchange’s ether wallet contains 1,726,496 ETH (~$395 million), and its eos reserves weigh in at 35,374,975 ($209 million).

Wrestling Against Scrutiny

Bitfinex’s clarifying its financial position comes after news broke last week that one of its former banking partners is looking for a buyer, a development that ProofofResearch argues further points to Bitfinex’s own financial troubles.

Searching for a bailout of sorts, the Puerto Rican Noble Bank is “no longer profitable,” according to a source close to the matter who tipped the news to Bloomberg. With Noble Bank’s cryptocurrency partners reportedly jumping ship, Bitfinex has also severed its relationship with the financial firm, affirming in its blog post that “[stories] and allegations currently circulating mentioning an entity called Noble Bank have no impact on [its] operations, survivability, or solvency.”

Popular stablecoin Tether also terminated its relationship with the bank. Operated by a like CEO in Jan Ludovicus van der Velde, Tether’s and Bitfinex’s operations, purportedly, are intrinsically linked, and the two companies have been long entangled in a conspiracy that charges Tether is not fully backed by U.S. dollar reserves.

An academic report that points to Tether’s artificially inflating bitcoin’s price during the 2017 run-up has only stoked skepticism. Though, an earlier study provides evidence to the contrary, and Tether has produced an in-house attestation overseen by the Freeh Sporkin & Sullivan law firm to clear its name. However, this attestation is not an official audit, something that Tether states is impossible for a company in its position to attain, even as other stablecoin projects have suggested otherwise.

Introduction

So there's a guy that calls himself "pip", offering 310 BitCoins (BTC) to who can solve this image riddle. We're going to try to solve, but because we're almost 1 week behind, first we'll replicate other people's findings and theories. Shout-outs to r/crypto_jedi_ninja for compiling the following list of theories-work already cooked:

  • Creator calls himself "pip", some people believe this is hint to this riddle-problem.
  • According to pip: Can only partly be solved by printing the image and not using software.
  • The number 310 is the prize and it's written by hand on the image. There's also a QR code found on row 310 in the image. [As we get here](TODO: LINK TO THE MOMENT WE MAKE THE QR HE USES LSB FROM REDS).
  • Pip used Least Significant Bit (LSB) to hide information in 310, he could be using it in more places.
  • According to pip, he expects you to message the SHA256 on a single line when you get to this page.
  • Some inferred you need to find three smaller keys with small rewards to access the big one. Those keys are 0.31, 0.2 and 0.1 BTC, a guy called Lustre was confirmed by pip to have found the 0.1 BTC key.
  • The values for each key could be another hint: 0.31, 0.2 and 0.1.
  • The original image used can be seen here note: i don't really know what that means hehe xd
  • Some say it could be a mosaic puzzle, others that it could be based on voronoi diagrams.
  • Curved lines and circle on the image may be alluding to this older riddle which used Bezier curves.
  • There are 21 characters in the image: L 3 C E O 2 7 5 K O D 8 9 9 D 4 F A 1 F 6 4
  • There're 3 letter groups in a grid, they could be words from the Bip-18 word algorithm or something else. The grid contains the following: 511 B20 332 328 410 530 | 22B 0FE 52E D0F 7A1 65B | 52C 7E7 511 2F6 56F C4B.

That's all, be sure to check the reddit in case pip drops another hint.

          10分钟解密,奖金1400万的比特币游戏      Cache   Translate Page      

如果你是电影和游戏发烧友,那么你对《头号玩家》一定不陌生,斯皮尔伯格用一个反乌托邦式的科幻电影结构,塑造了一部全球世纪流行文化编年史。

闪灵、高达、哥斯拉...在男主角的过关斩将中一一呈现,虚拟和现实的交织,高智商烧脑的快感,让人欲罢不能。

image

如果在现实世界也有这样一款烧脑游戏,你玩不玩?

310bitcoinchallege就是一款高智商解谜游戏。制作者号称里面有310个BTC,需要玩家通过解密的方式寻找到线索,从而获取310个BTC。

游戏中共有四个谜题,除了310比特币的终极谜题,还有奖金分别为以下数额比特币的谜题:

1、0.1BTC

2、0.2BTC

3、0.31BTC

参与者需要从中寻找钱包地址的私钥来赢取比特币。

在网站上,制作者放出了钱包地址:39uAUwEFDi5bBbdBm5ViD8sxDBBrz7SUP4。

10月4日,一位叫做"Lustre"的人成功破解了这份画中藏有0.1BTC的秘钥,并转走了其中的币。

10月9日下午,另一位匿名玩家成功破解了第二个挑战,并获得了0.2BTC

第一个秘钥的破解方法在10月8日下午被一众玩家共同猜出,并将方法公布在国外论坛bitcointalk和reddit上。但是截至目前,第二个秘钥是如何被破解的还没有人公布出来。

01 制作者给出解密的线索

制作者Pip曾经提到:“如果没有任何进展,我会给出一些线索”,“别指望在几小时或者几天内解决问题,不过要是有人能够实现,那真的很棒!”

根据Reddit、Bitcointalk以及discord讨论组汇总的信息,我们总结了所有可能用于解决这一问题的理论、线索。

Pip说想要解决谜题,将图片打印出来是必经之路(不仅仅是用软件分析),不过这句话应该只是个玩笑。

这张图既不是藏宝图,上面也没有任何与坐标的有关的东西,但将里面的点和线镜象之后,就会发现绝大多数元素神奇的对应上了。

价值1400万的310个比特币,就在其中。

image

所以解密的绝大部分工程还是要在电脑上完成,尤其是解密者需要检查哈希和助记词,看起来似乎只有技术大咖才能找到隐藏其中的比特币。

02 线索一 隐藏的原始数据

有人说:“我相信Pip在图片中藏了四条Payload。”

image

提起payload,大家可能比较陌生,翻译过来是有效载荷。

通常在传输数据时,为了使数据传输更可靠,要把原始数据分批传输,并且在每一批数据的头和尾都加上一定的辅助信息。

比如数据量的大小、校验位等,这样就相当于给已经分批的原始数据加一些外套。这些外套起标示作用,使得原始数据不易丢失。

数据+外套=传输通道的基本传输单元,叫做数据帧或数据包。

其中的原始数据就是payload。

image

这些原始数据以某种特殊的加密形式被隐藏在了图片里,所以玩家需要解密才手段能看见(比如说利用图片的分层、色彩的RGB来提取图像)。

不过找到这些Payload并不难,难的是解密。

如果用过PS的小伙伴会知道,在正常的图片当中,会有很多通道。

image

alpha通道是一个单独通道,相当于一个关联表一样的东西,来定义这个像素点的透明度的属性。

当只有它这一张图的时候不会有什么作用,但是当将有透明度的图片和其他的图片进行叠加的时候,透明度就能够产生它的作用了。

如果一张透明的图片,则阿尔法的作用之就是0,在叠加的时候,这块区域上的图片之后有本来的颜色,而不会有它自己的颜色。

alpha的作用位1的时候,就是将图片覆盖在了这块区域上。

例如下图中,整个图像是一块纯蓝色。通道中是一个蝴蝶的灰度图。两者相加以后我们就可以得到蓝色蝴蝶。

image

所以经过PS处理后,图片的alpha层的310行是一串二进制字符串。

但图片中可能不止有一串这样的二进制字符串。

有的用户表示:“alpha层中的字符串是基于Base64(双层加码的),因此可能会有使用不同的解码来解密”。

有的人认为较小的字符串包含在较大的字符串中。还有有些人推测在图片中格的底线嵌入了一个字符串。

03 线索二 加密字符串

当玩家知道线索在图片的alpha图层中之后,他迅速发现了这串字符串是通过Base64加密的OpenSSL加密字符串。

Base64是一种常用的加密手段,OpenSSL则是一个功能强大的工具包,它集成了众多密码算法及实用工具。

我们即可以利用它提供的命令台工具生成密钥、证书来加密解密文件,也可以在利用其提供的API接口在代码中对传输信息进行加密。

image

BTCChallenge用解密手段,解出了一串地址,并假设这是已经被转走0.1比特币的地址,继续解密。

同时图片上还有「2018年10月2日」的字样,这是挑战发布的日期,用小写字母写在图像上,用于解码第一个地址。

image

Pip在网站上写道:“将你到目前为止获得的SHA256哈希写在一行。”(这或许可以用来验证你的哈希是否正确)

image

这里提到的哈希,熟悉区块链的人应该都会经常听到。

但在计算机世界,哈希有着更广泛的意义。

哈希是通过对文件内容进行加密运算得到的一组二进制值,主要用途是用于文件校验或签名。

不同的文件(哪怕细微的差异)得到的哈希值均不相同,因此哈希值可做为文件唯一性判别。

对于普通上网者而言,可以通过对下载后的文件进行哈希值较验,以判断该文件是否在发布后被人修改过,保证下载的正确性。

image

Pip表示:“如果不知道如何获取那0.1比特币(无法提供正确的哈希),不要去进行无意义的尝试。”

他还说也许0.1BTC的钱包背后的东西更多,但也未必。但是我们知道的是,0.2BTC的谜题中,用到了第一个谜题的答案

image

图像上的曲线和圆圈可能暗指前BTC图像拼图,解密可能要用到摩斯密码、二进制字串符。

04 线索三 右下角的表格

在原图中,最容易被注意到的便是下方6*3的表格。

image

这些数字网格是十六进制的代码,制作者使用了移位密码(shift key)。

移位密码是最简单的一类代替密码,具体算法就是将字母表的字母右移k个位置(k<26),并对字母表长度作模运算

经过一番研究后,发现移位密码是我们前文提到过的日期,同样在图中出现的Oct 2 2018(即代码20181002)。

我们得到了一个新的6*3的网格。

image

第一排的310并没有任何实际意义,算是Pip对挑战者的小小肯定。

第二和第三排的12组数字依然是十六进制的,我们将其转变为十进制,便得到了12个数字。

image

这12与钱包之间的联系又有什么联系?

经过一阵思考,玩家们想到了助记词。

一般来说,钱包有12位助记词,每一个助记词都有相应对应的数字,系统随即生成。

image

数字编号从1号开始,单词从abandon开始,很容易让人想起背四级单词的噩梦。

我们在助记词的表单中,寻找数字所对应的助记词,便得到了下列对应关系。

image

通过导入上述私钥 「cry buyer grain save vault sign lyrics rhythm music fury horror mansion」,我们获得了一个钱包地址

经过查询,的确在10月4日有过转出0.1比特币的交易,数据一致。

image

为了还原以上过程,我们录制了一个视频:

同时我司小哥哥也写了一个模拟软件,放在了github上,文末有获取方法。

至于为什么十六机制用了移位密码,为什么又是转换为十进制而不是二进制,到现在为止,还没有人能搞清楚其中的缘由。

特别说明:解密过程翻译自bitcointalk:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5042285.40

如有雷同,纯属巧合

05 神秘的制作者

制作者在游戏页面说,他靠早期挖矿和买比特币赚了很多钱,而这次拿来做游戏奖励的310个比特币大部分是免费空投得来的。

做这个游戏的原因,是因为他觉得比特币改变了他的生活。无论谁破解代码,都可以用比特币做自己想做的事情。

有意思的是,制作者并没有表露自己真正的身份,他说大家可以叫他“Pip”。

发起人自称“Pip”,或许这个名称也有玄机。

《卫报》曾经报道过一篇文章,是一个解谜故事。

一个人和他的朋友Pip以及Blossom被恶魔抓起来。他们每个人手中都有一堆苹果,最少1个,最多9个,并且数量两两不同,每个人有机会向恶魔问一个问题,但问完之后他们要说出一共有多少个苹果。

Pip的问题是“总数是偶数吗?”答案是否定的;Blossom的问题是“总数是素数吗?”答案也是否定的。“我”知道自己有5个苹果,这时候“我”该问什么问题呢?只有一种选择“总数是不是15个?”。

解密的过程很长也很有意思,有兴趣的朋友可以去网上搜出来了解一下。

image

Pip在网站中说,他匿名的原因是因为他不想整个宇宙都知道自己的比特币财富,而且也不打算透露自己到底有多少BTC,他根本不在意自己是不是有更多钱。

也就是说,钱对他来说,是真正的身外之物。

我突然想起了王思聪的那句话:“我不在意别人有没有钱,反正都没有我有钱。”

06 极客们的狂欢

在游戏解密过程中,我们提到了一系列专业术语,二进制、十进制、十六进制、哈希、payload、alpha图层...这些令普通人费解的词语,明明白白的告诉着大家:

这是一个极客的游戏。

制作者以极其复杂的加密方式,来玩了一场1400万元的游戏。

在游戏当中,有不少有意思的事情:

玩家必须要完成前三个挑战才能进入最后一个挑战,每个挑战结束后还有相应得奖奖金,这让人想起《头号玩家》,不知是否是对斯皮尔伯格的一次致敬。

image

这张图片的原图来自一个名叫Peter Heeling的荷兰摄影师,在2016年10月25日拍下的免费图片。

原图是一片绿油油的森林,经过模糊等后期处理之后,变为了隐藏310比特币的「宝藏线索图」。

image

游戏的玩家,也异常的有趣:

有人甚至想到雇佣同伴,来获得大奖。

如果你想解决一个价值200万美元的谜题,那你起码要有300万美元的气魄。

雇15个人,每人每月支付2000美元。

如果我们成功解密,那么就平分200万美元;

即使失败了,我们也能一起度过一段有趣的时光。

就在我们文章写完不久,有人已经找出了第二关线索,成功拿走了0.2BTC。

image

这一次,据说玩家用了更加复杂的解密方式解开谜题,具体的解密方式,我们dapdap将持续关注,在后续的文章中会第一时间进行解析。

          Taylor Swift breaks her political silence, and America erupts      Cache   Translate Page      


  • Taylor Swift breaks her political silence by endorsing Tennessee Democratic candidates.
  • Mistakenly believing her to be one of theirs, the Alt-Right is furious.
  • New voter registrations have spiked since her announcement

In their heyday, The Beatles never told anyone how to vote, fearful as they were of their own power over their fan base. As one of their promoters put it, "Only Hitler ever duplicated their power over crowds." Such were the times that they felt safe keeping their views mostly to themselves, only occasionally implying them in song lyrics.

These are not those times, though, and The Beatles of today, Taylor Swift, this week stepped into the political fray by endorsing Democratic candidates for the Senate and House of Representatives candidates in her home state of Tennessee. She also strongly criticized the voting record of Republican Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn.

That Swift has spoken up in these troubled times confirms her image as an "All-American girl." The tweet in which she made her endorsement speaks eloquently in support of traditional American ideals.

I'm writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I'll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I've been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now. I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.
I cannot vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love. Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives. Please, please educate yourself on the candidates running in your state and vote based on who most closely represents your values. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.
So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. October 9th is the LAST DAY to register to vote in the state of TN. Go to vote.org and you can find all the info. Happy Voting!

Photo that accompanied Swift's tweet.

True to the times in which we live, the faction so out-of-step with traditional American ideals, the Alt-Right, exploded in rage. On the other hand, according to vote.org, new voter registrations since Swift's tweet have also exploded, with 65,000 signups in just the first 24 hours after her tweet, demonstrating the powerful and emotional bond Swift maintains with her audience.

The fallout is a stunning collision of the power of hate and celebrity that so characterize today's U.S.A.

Nobody's Aryan princess


The Alt-Right movement has for several years believed the blonde, blue-eyed, Southern Swift to be their "Aryan Princess." In the absence of a full-throated rejection from the pop star, their faith in Swift's presumed agreement with their radical views has become more and more entrenched over time.

Never mind that it began as a joke when a November 2011 4chan kitten-naming contest decided on a name Swift herself had chosen for her own feline. Additional "clues" supporting Swift's alleged All-Right leanings appeared over time, culminating in a ne-Nazi's article reposting a mashup of Hitler quotes over an image of Swift. His post was titled, "Aryan Goddess Taylor Swift: Nazi Avatar of the White European People."

In tweets, such as one describing Swift's endoresment as a "betrayal beyond words. On Reddit, things grew even darker, with one poster claiming, "Nobody pisses off 4chan. She will regret this move for that reason alone." Another informs her, "you just lost over half of your fanbase, including me." One Alt-Right commenter with a user name containing "taytay4ever" wondered, "Son of a bitch...how do I change usernames???"

Donald Trump defended Blackburn as a "tremendous woman," and shared his unique conception of math by telling supporters, "Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25% less now."

There are performers and then there’s Taylor


No other artist has remotely as emotionally resonant relationship with her fans as Taylor Swift does these days. Many, though by no means all, of her adorers are teenage girls who look to Swift for guidance in matters big and small during this charged time of life. From song lyrics to one-on-one fan surprises, Swift clearly works hard and reciprocate the adulation she receives. As she noted in her tweet, a sizable portion of her base has just come of voting age, and she clearly wanted to use her influence with them for positive change. That her reasons involved standing up for human rights and making clear that this includes various groups whose rights are in question these days fits in perfectly with her long-time message to fans. As Mary Mancini of vote.org tells Buzzfeed, "Having her come out and say this so publicly will make people sit up and say, ya know what, I'm not alone here."

According to Mancini, of the 5,183 new registrations in Tennessee so far this month, 2,144 were from the period following Swift's tweet. vote.org itself saw 155,940 unique visitors in the first post-tweet day, the largest group of visitors since National Voter Registration Day in September.

A gamble worth taking


Swift has really stepped up as a young American here, taking a real risk with her career and her personal safety to simply help her generation do what she feels is obviously right. That thousands are willingly following her guidance at the same time as others are demonizing her fits this American moment, sadly. To provide some light in this wilderness is why she spoke up.

O que os jornais do mundo estão falando sobre Jair Bolsonaro?

Os principais e mais influentes veículos de comunicação do mundo não hesitam em classificar o candidato como fascista. No Brasil, a timidez impera
Por Caroline Oliveira
A ascensão política de Jair Bolsonaro, candidato à Presidência da República pelo Partido Social Liberal (PSL), no Brasil, chamou a atenção do mundo. De acordo com os jornais e revistas internacionais, a crescente intenção de votos no pesselista alerta o mundo para o consequente aumento de ideias e ações fascistas no maior país da América Latina.
Não se trata da síndrome de vira lata, a priori teorizada por Gilberto Freyre. Mas de perceber como órgãos distantes observam a realidade brasileira. Talvez não seja imperioso a distância histórica para entender o que se sucede no País. Talvez basta ler o que estão dizendo veículos progressistas mundo afora.
Estados Unidos
A maioria se refere ao presidenciável como uma ameaça à democracia brasileira. Uma das matérias do jornal estadunidense The New York Times, “Brasil flerta com um retorno aos dias sombrios”, de agosto de 2018, expõe os posicionamentos preconceituosos dados por Bolsonaro e o define como um populista conservador que defende a ditadura militar e justifica o uso da tortura. O jornal afirma que a lista de acusações sexistas e racistas é extensa, mas o seu momento mais memorável foi durante a votação do impeachment da ex-presidenta Dilma Rousseff, quando o presidenciável homenageou um dos torturadores da petista na época ditatorial militar.
O também norteamericano Financial Times associa Jair Bolsonaro aos tempos sombrios. Para eles, as eleições estão tomando um rumo ao “trágico destino brasileiro de uma rebelião antidemocrática”.
Americas Quarterly atenta para o perigo do bolsonarismo, cujos limites já não podem ser mais controlados por seu criador, e, por isso, afirma que ganhando ou perdendo, a ascensão do candidato conduz a jovem democracia brasileira ao esgarçamento. Na reportagem, o jornalista escreveu “ele expressou muitas vezes seu amor pelos dias da ditadura e tem levantado a possibilidade de fraude eleitoral (se ele perder a eleição, claro)”.
Uma reportagem do HuffingtonPost, que tem sede no Brasil, destacou que o pesselista propôs vender terras de indígenas e descendentes de africanos escravizados. “Bolsonaro aproveitou o descontentamento, o desespero e a raiva. Fomentou uma reação contra um establishment corrupto com um populismo falso e barulhento. Se isso soa familiar, deveria. Bolsonaro ficou conhecido como “Trump do Brasil”. A Revista Time também fez essa relação com o presidente dos Estados Unidos: “Jair Bolsonaro ama Trump, odeia pessoas gays e admira autocratas. Ele pode ser o próximo presidente do Brasil.”
Reino Unido
No país britânico, o The Guardian é o veículo com mais reportagens sobre o presidenciável. Em uma reportagem afirmou que “Bolsonaro – que tem sido descrito como o mais eleito misógino e odioso no mundo democrático e possivelmente o político mais repulsivo da Terra – não é conhecido como um fã das urnas”. Recentemente, seu filho Eduardo Bolsonaro questionou, ao lado do juiz Rocha Cubas, a legitimidade e a segurança das urnas eleitorais. Pouco tempo depois, o magistrado foi afastado de sua função pelo Conselho Nacional de Justiça (CNJ) por tentar atrapalhar a realização das eleições.
The Economist publicou recentemente uma edição da revista que viralizou pelo mundo. Na capa, o rosto de Jair Bolsonaro. Como legenda, “A mais nova Ameaça na América Latina”. Em uma das reportagens, afirma que “o Sr. Bolsonaro propõe soluções brutais para os problemas do seu país. Ele acha que ‘um policial que não mata não é um policial’ e quer reduzir a idade de responsabilidade criminal para 14”. Nessa seara, a The Times classifica o candidato como um populista perigoso que tornar o Brasil mais seguro.
Austrália
veículo News publicou uma reportagem com a manchete: “Pensando que Donald Trump é ruim? Conheça o possível presidente brasileiro cujas crenças repulsivas chocaram o mundo”.
No The Australian, conheça o candidato que é um risco para a democracia. No The Sydney Sunday Herald, por que alguns no Brasil estão se virando para um explosivo candidato de extrema-direita para o presidente?


Alemanha
No país do meio europeu, uma reportagem da Deutsche Welle destaca a opinião da historiadora Nina Schneider, da Universidade de Colônia. Para ela, “Bolsonaro é muito mais radical que o presidente americano. Ele faz comentários racistas, homofóbicos e sexistas. Mas o pior é elogiar em público os torturadores, isso o torna muito mais perigoso do que o Trump”, afirma.
“Um Fascista Se Apresentando Como Homem Honesto”, “O fascista popular”, “Alerta vermelho para democracia” e “O demagogo do deserto é de repente uma nova estrela política no Brasil” são outras manchetes alemãs.
França
O veículo Le Figaro “o ex-capitão de 63 anos Jair Bolsonaro nunca brilhou nos quartéis ou na Câmara dos Representantes, exceto em suas provocações e seus divertidos. Seus alvos favoritos sempre foram feministas, homossexuais, negros, índios, progressistas, criminosos”. O capitão, para o Libération, um dos mais importantes jornais do mundo, é um ex-soldado pronto para liquidar a democracia. Para o Le Monde, é o Trump tropical, homofóbico e machista
Outros países europeus
Na Espanha, para o El Pais, Bolsonaro é um Pinochet institucional para o Brasil. No El Mundo, o candidato racista, homofóbico e machista do Brasil. No El Confidencial, o “Le Pen tropical” que pode ser o próximo presidente do País, em uma alusão à francesa de extrema-direita Marine Le Pen. Para a Itália, Um pesadelo chamado Bolsonaro, na Corriende della Sierra. Bolsonaro, líder xenófobo e anti-gay que dá o assalto à Presidência do Brasil, em La Republica. Para O Público, de Portugal, Bolsonaro é o Jagunço à porta do Planalto. Para o Diário de Notícias, também do país lusitano, Jair Bolsonaro é perigo real no Brasil e segue passos de Adolf Hitler. Para o país considerado pelos brasileiros como um dos mais desenvolvidos da Europa, a Suíça, Bolsonaro é tido como o “Faxineiro Racista do Brasil”. Por fim, o jornal Der Volkskrant deu destaque para as manifestações das mulheres contra o presidenciável.
América Latina
No Chile, o veículo El Mercurio publicou uma reportagem intitulada “Bolsonaro assusta com soluções simplistas e autoritárias”. Para o argentino La Nación, o candidato mistura linha dura com messianismo. No El Clarín, Bolsonaro é militarista e xenófobo, mas ainda assim favorito para a eleição brasileira.  O La Republica, do Peru, assim como o veículo holandês, também salientou os protestos protagonizados por mulheres no País.

NXTWORK 2018: Engineering Simplicity During a Time of Explosive Growth


This marks the fourth year of our annual customer event, NXTWORK. We have come a long way from our inaugural kick-off event in Santa Clara in 2015 where we drew a crowd of 267 attendees. In 2018, this number has grown to 730 attendees and we’ve taken the show around the world with stops in Australia, the U.K., China and Las Vegas.

 

The theme for NXTWORK 2018 is Engineering Simplicity in a time of explosive growth. Across our industry, everywhere you look, there is evidence of growth. Whether it’s the eye-popping bandwidth numbers driven by multimedia, the number of connected devices around the planet or the continued mass migration to cloud that shows up in the cloud providers quarterly results, rapid growth is all around us.

 

Rapid growth typically indicates progress, but growth can also create complexity.

 

At Juniper Networks, we like to solve hard problems. We develop technology to solve the most difficult, but also the most important problems in the world. It’s why we have decided to dig through the clutter and create a new true north for Juniper: battling growth-inhibiting complexity.

          Daycare Worker Reveals Stomach-Turning Reason Why She Won't Let Parents Drop Off a Sleeping Kid      Cache   Translate Page      
Post by Genny Glassman.

An anonymous daycare worker's surprising revelation on the popular website Reddit is going viral after the person shared the specific reason why he or she will never let parents leave sleeping child in his or her care. User 561349, explained that an old employer said never to accept a sleeping tot, which the user assumed was done in effort to keep the kids on their sleep schedule. The real reason, however, is much more sinister. The Reddit user explained about later learning that abusive parents will often hurt and then drug their kids before dropping a little one off at daycare and then try to blame the daycare for the child's injuries.

"I think you've been out in the sun too long." Continuing to feature horror short films during the month of October, here's another one to watch. El Aura Azul is a horror short made by filmmaker Andy Harbeck, set in capital city of Medellín, Colombia. The title translates to The Blue Aura, and it's about a young woman who returns home from an afternoon at the pool to discover she might have awakened a supernatural force. The short stars Manuela Vásquez Ochoa, Valentina Abad Pérez, and Camila Velez. The scary stuff that does appear isn't that scary, but I like the cinematography and the way he builds up the tension in this. Thanks to Reddit for the tip.

          Voyager 2 Spacecraft Approaches Interstellar Space      Cache   Translate Page      

The Voyager 2 spacecraft was launched 41 years ago, and is now 11 billion miles from Earth. While that itself is amazing, it is even more staggering that the spacecraft is still sending back data, decades after the communication system was expected to fail. Voyager 2 measures cosmic rays. A recent increase in the number of cosmic rays detected indicate that the spacecraft is reaching the edge of the heliosphere, the limit of our sun's solar wind.

It’s believed that the heliosphere blocks a lot of these rays from reaching our solar system, but as you travel closer to the edge and the barrier starts to thin out, more cosmic rays become detectable. Voyager 2’s increased measurements suggest that it’s inching closer to the heliopause, and could soon enter the interstellar medium.

And if we’re going off of history, the craft could be crossing the threshold any day now. In 2012, Voyager 1 experienced a similar spike in cosmic rays about three months before it passed through the heliopause, becoming the first craft to invade interstellar space.

The exact location of Voyager 2 is a guess based on the data it sends. Read more about the milestone at Discover magazine.  -via reddit

You can keep up with the status of both Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 at NASA.

          macOS 和 Linux 内核之间有什么不同?      Cache   Translate Page      

有些人可能会认为在 macOS 和 linux 内核之间存在相似之处,因为它们可以处理类似的命令并运行类似的软件。 一些人甚至认为 Apple 的 macOS 是基于 Linux。事实上,两个内核有着不同的历史和特性。 今天,我们就来看看 macOS 和 Linux 内核之间的差异。


macOS 和 Linux 内核之间有什么不同?
macOS 内核的历史

我们将从 macOS 内核的历史开始。 1985 年,由于首席执行官 John Sculley 和苹果董事会的失败,史蒂夫乔布斯离开了苹果公司。 然后,他成立了一家名为 NeXT 的新电脑公司。 乔布斯想要把一台(带有新的操作系统的)新电脑快速推向市场。 为了节省时间,NeXT 团队使用了来自卡内基梅隆的 马赫内核 和部分 BSD 代码库来创建 NeXTSTEP 操作系统 。

NeXT 从未取得财务成功,一部分归功于乔布斯的花钱习惯,就像他还在苹果公司一样。 与此同时,苹果公司曾多次尝试更新其操作系统,甚至与 IBM 合作。 1997 年,苹果公司以 4.29 亿美元收购了 NeXT。 作为交易的一部分,乔布斯回到了苹果公司,NeXTSTEP 成了 macOS 和 iOS 的基础。

Linux 内核的历史

不像 macOS 内核,Linux 不是作为商业努力的一部分而创建的。 相反,它是 由芬兰计算机科学学生 Linus Torvalds 在 1991 年创建的 。 最初,内核是按 Linus 的计算机规格编写的,因为他想使用其新的 80386 处理器。 Linus 在 1991 年 8 月向 Usenet 发布 了他的新内核代码。 很快,他就收到了来自世界各地的代码和功能建议。 次年 Orest Zborowski 将 X windows 系统移植到 Linux,使其能支持图形用户界面。

在过去的 27 年中,Linux 已经慢慢成长并被赋予了特性。 这不再是一个学生的小型项目。 现在它运行在 世界上 大多数计算机设备 和 超级计算机 上。 并不太糟。

macOS 内核的特性

macOS 内核官方称为 XNU。该 缩写 代表“XNU 不是 Unix”。 根据 苹果的 GitHub 页面 ,XNU 是“卡内基梅隆大学的马赫内核与用于编写驱动程序的 FreeBSD 组件和 C++ API 相结合的混合内核”。 代码的 BSD 子系统的部分是 “通常实现为微内核系统中的用户空间服务器” 。 马赫部分负责低级工作,诸如多任务,受保护的内存,虚拟内存管理,内核调试支持和控制台 I/O。

Linux 内核的特性

虽然 macOS 内核结合微内核( 马赫 )和单内核( BSD )的特性,但 Linux 只是一个单内核。 单内核 负责 CPU 管理,内存,进程间通信,设备驱动程序,文件系统和系统服务器调用。

Mac 和 Linux 内核的一行不同

macOS 内核(XNU)比 Linux 时间更长,是基于 2 个很早的代码库的组合。 另一方面,Linux 更新,从头开始编写,并在更多设备上使用。

如果您发现这篇文章很有趣,请花些时间在社交媒体,骇客新闻或 Reddit 上分享。

感想

最近体验了苹果的 iOS 系统,和Android 系统分别对应 Unix 与 Linux 内核。

可以感受到苹果以其流畅的系统和高标准的软件生态营造了较佳的用户体验。

          为什么这么多Linux用户更喜欢命令行而不是GUI?      Cache   Translate Page      

为什么这么多 linux 用户更喜欢 CLI 而非 GUI ? 上次我在 Reddit 关注该问题时,遇到了一些有帮助的投稿:

“处于相同的原因我更喜欢谈论指指点点和七嘴八舌。 可以很好的传达并给出很好的反馈。

这不是一团糟,而是富有诗意的精确。 你根本无法在 2 维面板上为每个命令行适配选项。 光想想 GNU 的查找的 GUI 界面就知道有多么疯狂。”

比起使用 CLI 我更常用 GUI 工作,但这是我做最重要的开发任务时的方式。 命令行界面可以说具有一个陡峭的学习曲线,但一旦你掌握它,你就会喜欢上它,因为它将变成第二天性。

以下是我认为许多 Linux 用户更喜欢命令行界面的最普遍的原因。


为什么这么多Linux用户更喜欢命令行而不是GUI?
1. 更集中注意力

关于 CLI 我最喜欢的是它的无干扰界面。 当然,默认的黑白色在前几次可能有点吓人,一旦你掌握了它,就会得到它的祝福。

在任何时候,界面都只显示当前项目的必要信息,而其它信息都是一些按键。 这样,你就会专注于重要的事上。

2. 更详细

想一想――每个命令行选项都放入 GUI 选项面板中几乎是不可能的。 文本编辑器和 IDE (以及其它复杂的应用)设法在变成期间把各种选项放进工具栏和隐藏布局中, 但随着时间的推移会添加更多的功能选项――当调用时,在后台调用命令。

如果你已经构建了一个 GUI 应用,在你知道每个在应用窗口中看到的选项与在后台运行的命令相关联之前。 实际上,在把功能实现为 GUI 选项之前,首先会对 CLI 方面进行排序。 由于这一事实, CLI 在选项集和可用性方面总是更加详细。

3. 只需较少的存储空间

这个或多或少是一个明智的选择。 基于命令行的应用只需更少的空间,因为他们缺少 GUI 应用具有的“肉体”,不管他们多么轻量。

这意味着如果存储空间对你来说是一个问题,那么你最好使用基于 CLI 的应用而不用担心降低工作效率。 这引发了我的下一个观点:

4. 提高生产力

在无干扰模式下工作已经把生产力提高了一个等级,并且大多数时候只使用键盘这一事实可以改善你的工作流程和精神。

一位开发的朋友曾告诉我, “你工作时碰鼠标的频率越低,你的效率就越高” 。 所以,难怪熟练的程序员更喜欢使用基于 CLI 的编辑器,例如: Vim 和 Emacs 。

5. 记忆效率更高

使用 CLI 工作比使用 GUI 应用程序更益于记忆,一个好的例子就是 Git 。 Git 的 GUI 应用程序具有足够的记忆效率,但直接使用 Git 命令行更加利于对你操作的记忆。

6. 与发行版无关(跨平台)

命令行应用很少使用不同的命令,无论运行在哪个发行版上, 但 GNU/Linux, macOS 和 windows 平台上的 GUI 应用程序通常不是这种情况, 因为可以重新排列选项以适应平台的 UI 方案。

例如,在 Linux 生态系统中, bash 使用相同的命令。 作为一个系统管理员,你需要做的就是学习 bash 并且你应该能够使用任何其它的 Linux 发行版。

这里还有一些 CLI 吸引许多 Linux 用户的其它原因,包含管道,脚本自动化和整体速度。

无论你使用命令行还是 GUI 应用,我相信你对为什么这么多 Linux 用户更喜欢使用命令行而不是 GUI 应用会有所了解。 在下面的讨论部分与我们分享你的意见。

感想

对于后端工作,我像大部分 Linux 一样比较倾向于使用命令行。

优点(原因)如上所述。

          Eight Options for Creating Screencasts on Chromebooks      Cache   Translate Page      
Recording screencasts is one relatively easy way to get started making videos in your classroom. Today, I helped some middle school students make screencasts in which they explained the animations they made to represent forms of energy. Those students used Screencastify on their Chromebooks to make their videos. But Screencastify isn't the only screencasting tool that will work on a Chromebook. Here are eight tools that can be used to create screencasts on Chromebooks.

Screencastify was one of the first screencasting tools made for Chromebooks. It's a solid product and is easy to use. You can record your screen, your screen and your webcam, just your screen, or just your webcam. The free version puts a watermark on the recording and doesn't support direct download to MP4. On the upside, there is an option to upload directly to YouTube, to save directly to Google Drive, and to share directly to Google Classroom.

For many years Screencast-o-matic has been my favorite tool for creating screencast videos on Windows and Mac computers. Now it is available to use on Chromebooks too. To use Screencast-o-Matic on a Chromebook just go to this page and click "launch recorder." You can record your screen or your screen and your webcam simultaneously. You can narrate your videos by using your Chromebook's built-in microphone or by using an external mic like a Blue Snowball. The free version of Screencast-o-matic will let you record for up to 15 minutes, record as many videos as you like, and save to your Google Drive or local drive.

Padlet is known as a digital corkboard to which students add notes, links, pictures, and videos. But ff you install Padlet's Chrome extension you can launch a screen recording tool directly from a Padlet note. You can record your screen and voice for up to five minutes. Your recording will be automatically added to your note when stop your recording.

Loom is a free screencasting tool that works on Chromebooks, Macs, and Windows computers. Loom is a Chrome extension. With Loom installed you can record your desktop, an individual tab, and or your webcam. That means that you could use Loom to just record a webcam video on a Chromebook. Of course, this also means that you can use Loom to record your webcam while also recording your desktop. Loom recordings can be up to ten minutes long. A completed recording can be shared via social media and email. You can also download your recordings as MP4 files to upload to YouTube or any other video hosting service. Loom also has a neat integration with Gmail that makes it easy to send screencasts to anyone who emails you for tech help. Click here to see how that integration works. 

Vidyard GoVideo is a free Chrome extension that makes it quick and easy to create and share screencast videos. With the extension installed you can record your entire screen or just one window tab. Vidyard GoVideo will let you record yourself with your webcam too. The best part of Vidyard GoVideo is that you can track who watches your video. To record on Vidyard GoVideo you simply have to click the extension icon then choose what you want to record. When you're done recording your video is automatically stored on Vidyard GoVideo. From Vidyard GoVideo you can share your video via email and social media. If you choose to share via email, you will be able to track who watched your video.

Nimbus Screenshot was my favorite tool on this list until Screencast-o-matic launched their Chromebook tool. I like Nimbus because of its ease of installation and it is the only tool on this list that provided a customizable countdown timer. I like the countdown timer because it gives me a few seconds to prepare to start talking over my screencast. The other tools just started recording the second that I hit the record button. Nimbus Screenshot was also the easiest to install and configure on my Chromebook. Screencasts recorded with Nimbus Screenshot can be saved to your local drive or to an online Nimbus account. I usually choose to save to my local drive then upload to my YouTube channel. You can also save to your local drive then send it to Google Drive or another online storage service.

CaptureCast lets you record your webcam while recording your screen which you cannot do with the Nimbus tool. You can choose to record your screen, your screen and your webcam, or just your screen or just your webcam. CaptureCast gives you three options for recording definition. So if you're on a slower network you can choose a lower resolution recording to save processing time. CaptureCast lets you save a recording locally or send it to YouTube or to Vimeo.

Soapbox is a free tool from Wistia that makes it easy to create great screencast videos on a Chromebook or any computer that is using the Chrome web browser. With Soapbox installed in the Chrome web browser you can quickly record your screen and your webcam at the same time. The most distinguishing feature of Soapbox is that you can have your video transition from your screen to your webcam to a combination of the two. Soapbox includes some simple editing tools for zooming in on an area of your screen and calling attention to specific parts of your screen.

          Google Classroom Now Has a Random Name Selector      Cache   Translate Page      
Google Classroom has a new random name selector tool available in the Google Classroom Android app. As announced by Google earlier today the random name selector will randomly pick names from your roster and let you keep track of which students have or have not been called upon.

To use the random name selector in the Google Classroom Android app simply open the app, select your class, tap "people" at the bottom of the screen, and then tap the random name selector at the top of the next screen. The random name picker will let you mark a student as absent if he/she isn't in class. You can also select "call later" if you want to move on to another student then come back to the first student. Finally, after you have called on a student tap the "next" button to mark that student as having been called upon.

Here are some random name selectors for those who don't use Google Classroom on an Android phone or tablet. 

Random Name Picker is a free tool from Russel Tarr at Classtools.net. The Random Name Picker lets you input names and spin a virtual wheel to have a name randomly selected from the list. After a name is selected you can remove it from the wheel so that it is not selected again. Random Name Picker is free to use and does not require a registration on Classtools.net. You can save your lists by assigning passwords to them. You can re-use your saved lists. The Random Name Picker wheel can be embedded into your blog or website. The Random Name Picker was written in HTML5 so that it will run in the browser of your iPad.

Flippity.net offers sixteen Google Sheets templates. One of those templates is a random name selector. Simply make a copy of this template, insert your class roster, and then publish your spreadsheet to use Flippity's random name selector.

The Random Name Selector from Primary Technology is a simple tool for picking names from a list you've created. To use the selector just type in or copy a list of names then hit "go." Once a name is selected you have the option of launching a two minute or seven minute countdown timer. You also have the option to remove a name from the list after it has been selected. Watch the video below to learn a little more and see the Random Name Selector in use.

          Stare in pensione per quarant'anni      Cache   Translate Page      

 

Sono oltre 758.372 gli assegni pensionistici messi in pagamento dall'Inps (e dall'ex Inpdap) da più di 37 anni: lo si legge in uno studio di Itinerari previdenziali che spiega che nel conto ci sono tutte le pensioni previdenziali: vecchiaia, anzianità, prepensionamenti, superstiti e invalidità. Sono esclusi gli assegni di invalidità civile e le altre forme di assistenza.

"La durata media delle prestazioni erogate dal 1980 o prima - si legge - è di circa 38 anni per i dipendenti del settore privato e, nel caso del settore pubblico, rispettivamente di 41 anni e 41,5 anni per lavoratori e lavoratrici: prestazioni corrette sotto il profilo attuariale non dovrebbero superare i 25 anni".

"Un'attenta analisi delle decorrenze pensionistiche - prosegue lo studio - evidenzia un sistema previdenziale reso oggi eccessivamente rigido dalla riforma Monti-Fornero, ma sin troppo generoso tra 1965 e 1980: è saltata la relazione contributi e prestazioni, con effetti che gravano tuttora sul bilancio del welfare".

"Ci vorranno diversi anni, spiega Alberto Brambilla, Presidente del Centro Studi e Ricerche Itinerari Previdenziali, per ridurre le anomalie che tuttora appesantiscono il bilancio del welfare italiano. Nel nostro Paese - precisa - sono in pagamento 3.806.297 prestazioni che hanno superano la durata di 25 anni" (il limite di durata che non dovrebbe essere superato perchè sia corretto sotto il profilo attuariale il rapporto tra contributi e durata dell'assegno, ndr), pari al 24% circa dei pensionati (circa 16 milioni nel 2017 ma alcuni hanno più assegni). "Si potrebbe dire - prosegue - che è una sorta di reddito di cittadinanza ante litteram, anche se mascherato da pensione.

Tra le categorie maggiormente favorite ci sono le donne, cui spetta l'80% delle prestazioni in pagamento da 37 anni e più e il 67% di quelle oltre i 25 anni; le tipologie di prestazioni prevalente sono le pensioni di invalidità, superstiti e vecchiaia. A gennaio 2018, nel settore privato - si legge nello studio - risultano ancora in essere circa 250.000 pensioni dovute a prepensionamenti avvenuti anche con 10 anni di anticipo rispetto ai requisiti allora vigenti. Questi prepensionamenti "gravano sul bilancio pensionistico- si legge - anziché essere considerati delle vere e proprie misure di sostegno al reddito".

Analoga è la situazione delle invalidità previdenziali: all'1 gennaio 2018 ne risultano in pagamento oltre 948.000 (il 6,8% del totale delle pensioni), di cui con oltre 37 anni ben 328.000 e con 25 e più anni 490.000.

Una parte consistente di questi assegni è costituito dalle baby pensioni dei lavoratori del pubblico impiego, erogate alle donne con figli anche dopo 14 anni sei mesi e un giorno di lavoro. In questo caso, le prestazioni pensionistiche erogate da oltre 37 anni sono quasi 75.000.

Purtroppo, l'Italia - dice Brambilla - preferisce spostarsi sempre sulle estreme anziché mantenersi in un centro "equilibrato" e tutto questo ne è il risultato. Pensiamo ad esempio al dibattito sulle pensioni che, nelle ultime settimane, si è concentrato sul "ricalcolo" delle pensioni oltre i 4.000/4.500 euro, senza invece considerare tutte quelle prestazioni che, pur magari inferiori come importo, sono in pagamento da tempi lunghissimi e senza essere sostenute da un adeguato versamento di contributi.

          Eight Options for Creating Screencasts on Chromebooks      Cache   Translate Page      
Recording screencasts is one relatively easy way to get started making videos in your classroom. Today, I helped some middle school students make screencasts in which they explained the animations they made to represent forms of energy. Those students used Screencastify on their Chromebooks to make their videos. But Screencastify isn't the only screencasting tool that will work on a Chromebook. Here are eight tools that can be used to create screencasts on Chromebooks.

Screencastify was one of the first screencasting tools made for Chromebooks. It's a solid product and is easy to use. You can record your screen, your screen and your webcam, just your screen, or just your webcam. The free version puts a watermark on the recording and doesn't support direct download to MP4. On the upside, there is an option to upload directly to YouTube, to save directly to Google Drive, and to share directly to Google Classroom.

For many years Screencast-o-matic has been my favorite tool for creating screencast videos on Windows and Mac computers. Now it is available to use on Chromebooks too. To use Screencast-o-Matic on a Chromebook just go to this page and click "launch recorder." You can record your screen or your screen and your webcam simultaneously. You can narrate your videos by using your Chromebook's built-in microphone or by using an external mic like a Blue Snowball. The free version of Screencast-o-matic will let you record for up to 15 minutes, record as many videos as you like, and save to your Google Drive or local drive.

Padlet is known as a digital corkboard to which students add notes, links, pictures, and videos. But ff you install Padlet's Chrome extension you can launch a screen recording tool directly from a Padlet note. You can record your screen and voice for up to five minutes. Your recording will be automatically added to your note when stop your recording.

Loom is a free screencasting tool that works on Chromebooks, Macs, and Windows computers. Loom is a Chrome extension. With Loom installed you can record your desktop, an individual tab, and or your webcam. That means that you could use Loom to just record a webcam video on a Chromebook. Of course, this also means that you can use Loom to record your webcam while also recording your desktop. Loom recordings can be up to ten minutes long. A completed recording can be shared via social media and email. You can also download your recordings as MP4 files to upload to YouTube or any other video hosting service. Loom also has a neat integration with Gmail that makes it easy to send screencasts to anyone who emails you for tech help. Click here to see how that integration works. 

Vidyard GoVideo is a free Chrome extension that makes it quick and easy to create and share screencast videos. With the extension installed you can record your entire screen or just one window tab. Vidyard GoVideo will let you record yourself with your webcam too. The best part of Vidyard GoVideo is that you can track who watches your video. To record on Vidyard GoVideo you simply have to click the extension icon then choose what you want to record. When you're done recording your video is automatically stored on Vidyard GoVideo. From Vidyard GoVideo you can share your video via email and social media. If you choose to share via email, you will be able to track who watched your video.

Nimbus Screenshot was my favorite tool on this list until Screencast-o-matic launched their Chromebook tool. I like Nimbus because of its ease of installation and it is the only tool on this list that provided a customizable countdown timer. I like the countdown timer because it gives me a few seconds to prepare to start talking over my screencast. The other tools just started recording the second that I hit the record button. Nimbus Screenshot was also the easiest to install and configure on my Chromebook. Screencasts recorded with Nimbus Screenshot can be saved to your local drive or to an online Nimbus account. I usually choose to save to my local drive then upload to my YouTube channel. You can also save to your local drive then send it to Google Drive or another online storage service.

CaptureCast lets you record your webcam while recording your screen which you cannot do with the Nimbus tool. You can choose to record your screen, your screen and your webcam, or just your screen or just your webcam. CaptureCast gives you three options for recording definition. So if you're on a slower network you can choose a lower resolution recording to save processing time. CaptureCast lets you save a recording locally or send it to YouTube or to Vimeo.

Soapbox is a free tool from Wistia that makes it easy to create great screencast videos on a Chromebook or any computer that is using the Chrome web browser. With Soapbox installed in the Chrome web browser you can quickly record your screen and your webcam at the same time. The most distinguishing feature of Soapbox is that you can have your video transition from your screen to your webcam to a combination of the two. Soapbox includes some simple editing tools for zooming in on an area of your screen and calling attention to specific parts of your screen.

          Google Classroom Now Has a Random Name Selector      Cache   Translate Page      
Google Classroom has a new random name selector tool available in the Google Classroom Android app. As announced by Google earlier today the random name selector will randomly pick names from your roster and let you keep track of which students have or have not been called upon.

To use the random name selector in the Google Classroom Android app simply open the app, select your class, tap "people" at the bottom of the screen, and then tap the random name selector at the top of the next screen. The random name picker will let you mark a student as absent if he/she isn't in class. You can also select "call later" if you want to move on to another student then come back to the first student. Finally, after you have called on a student tap the "next" button to mark that student as having been called upon.

Here are some random name selectors for those who don't use Google Classroom on an Android phone or tablet. 

Random Name Picker is a free tool from Russel Tarr at Classtools.net. The Random Name Picker lets you input names and spin a virtual wheel to have a name randomly selected from the list. After a name is selected you can remove it from the wheel so that it is not selected again. Random Name Picker is free to use and does not require a registration on Classtools.net. You can save your lists by assigning passwords to them. You can re-use your saved lists. The Random Name Picker wheel can be embedded into your blog or website. The Random Name Picker was written in HTML5 so that it will run in the browser of your iPad.

Flippity.net offers sixteen Google Sheets templates. One of those templates is a random name selector. Simply make a copy of this template, insert your class roster, and then publish your spreadsheet to use Flippity's random name selector.

The Random Name Selector from Primary Technology is a simple tool for picking names from a list you've created. To use the selector just type in or copy a list of names then hit "go." Once a name is selected you have the option of launching a two minute or seven minute countdown timer. You also have the option to remove a name from the list after it has been selected. Watch the video below to learn a little more and see the Random Name Selector in use.

          Gay New Yorker Calls Police On "N-Word" Lyft Driver Who's "Racist Against Gay People"      Cache   Translate Page      

A gay New Yorker is going viral for all the wrong reasons.

A YouTube video and GoFundMe campaign have popped up in support of the driver that this gay man says was threatening him.

Before we show you the video, we’ll fill you in on what happened before the video (from what we can gather).

Apparently, this gay man, named Robert Ortiz, got into Lyft with two friends after leaving a gay club. At some point during the drive, the three men asked the driver, named Shan Pepas Lettman, to play music. Lettman declined and an argument followed, which resulted in Lettman stopping the car. At this point, Ortiz picked up his own phone to call the police and Lettman started recording the men as they became more belligerent.

If the video below is too long for you or in case you miss some things, here are a few important lines from Ortiz in the recording.

“I came out of a gay club and your driver is racist against gay people.”

“I called the police to protect myself because I know my legal rights as an American citizen that voted for Trump.

"[Talking to a Lyft representative] I’m not gonna stop talking you piece of sh*t. You're gonna tell me to stop talking? F*** you. I'm gonna wait for the police. [hangs up]"

“I’m gonna make his night a living hell.”

“[After video calling a friend] Yo, Boo, tell me why I’m in a Lyft and the n***a f**king pulled over…The n***a’s recording me without my consent, because I asked for music…"

While posting the video, Pepas simultaneously created a GoFundMe to see if anyone would help his financial troubles.

As Pepas said on the page:

“The video pretty much speaks for itself [as to what happened] but what the video doesn’t show is what happened next. After the end of the video, i had to also call the police for myself expressing my concerns and fear of what will happen if i was not assisted. Luckily there was no physical confrontation but the company i drive with felt it necessary to cancel my account pending investigation.  Unfortunately expenses weren’t suspended and I am left to dig myself out of an awfully stressful predicament. I didn’t ask for this nor did i want this. I know America is better than this and despite the hate we have to deal with from a few, my heart tells me, the world is mostly good. I ask for help, So i can get  myself off the ground and back to providing for my family again. Any and every help offered will be greatly appreciated even the prayers for my family and myself.”

He then later added:

“My name is Shawn Pepas Lettman, I reside in Brooklyn and happy to say still a Lyft driver. I just wanted everyone to know that I really appreciate all your kind words and I really thank each and everyone for their donations. All donations received will assist me in catching up on expenses such as rent and car payments. Also I have heard some rumors about a lawsuit coming my way from the use of the video captured on my phone and I want to be fully prepared if that does happens.”

After the video went viral on YouTube and Reddit, both Lettman and Ortiz were affected by the footage.

Ortiz was reportedly fired from his job at City MD. In addition, he recited his phone number while on camera, a mistake he’d later regret. Apparently, many people who saw the video then called Ortiz and left messages on his voicemail. This got so bad that he later changed his number.

As for Lettman, he received kind words, praise, and donations from the people of the internet. His GoFundMe page has been nearly funded and Lettman left the following update message.

“I really appreciate the out pour of love and support i sincerely appreciate it. My account has been reinstated and i am able to work again. I just wanted to share that bit with everyone.. Thank you!”

          The A12 Chip Has Almost Caught up to Desktop Chips      Cache   Translate Page      

Redditor u/WinterCharm has made an informative post where he compares Apple’s A12 chip to desktop chips like the Xeon 8192, i7 6700k, and AMD EPYC 7601.

The main takeaway here is that Apple’s A12 is approaching or exceeding the performance of these competing chips in Spec2006, with lower clock speeds and less power consumption. The A12 BIG core running at 2.5GHz beats a Xeon 8176 core running at 3.8GHz, in 9 out of 12 of Spec_Int 2006 tests, often by a large margin (up to 44%). It falls behind in 3 tests, but the deficiency is 2%, 6%, and 12%. It also comes quite close to a desktop 6700k.

Melihat anak-anak dijaga oleh sang ibu menjadi hal yang sudah biasa. Namun bagaimana jadinya jika ayah yang harus bertanggung jawab mengasuh sang anak seorang diri?

          Dystopia: an update      Cache   Translate Page      

True aficionados of the earthly apocalypse cannot fail to have noted the deepening pessimism in discourses on what is often euphemistically referred to as “climate change”, but what should be designated “environmental catastrophe”. The Paris Agreement of 2015 conceded the need to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, albeit without binding nations to either achieve this specific target or impose specific binding targets in turn on the worst offenders, namely the fossil fuel industries.

The post Dystopia: an update appeared first on OUPblog.

          Is Deciem really gone? What we know about the Toronto-based skincare company's shutdown      Cache   Translate Page      

If you’re a skincare consumer who loves a good deal, there’s a good chance you know about Deciem, the Toronto-based company known for its popular affordable range The Ordinary. And if you follow the company on social media, there’s an equally good chance you’ve already been acquainted with the brand’s founder, Brandon Truaxe, whose behaviour has been widely perceived as erratic since he took over Deciem’s Instagram channel earlier this year.

Most recently, Truaxe posted an emotional and at times almost incoherent video to the brand’s Instagram feed over the weekend announcing that the brand was ceasing operations, saying that “almost everyone at Deciem has been involved in major criminal activity which includes financial crimes and much other.”

He went on to threaten a laundry list of people with criminal prosecution, including beauty and pharmaceutical industry executives, celebrities like Ben Affleck, Brad Pitt, and George Clooney, Canadian banks and even U.S. President Donald Trump himself.

So, what on earth is going on, and is Deciem really shuttering? Here’s everything we know about the latest Deciem news and possible company shutdown.

Is this the first time Brandon Truaxe has been in the news?

Hardly. From inciting a feud with the skincare brand Drunk Elephant in January to responding to commenters who question his frame of mind with derogatory comments, he’s stirred up controversy on the brand’s Instagram countless times since taking it over with posts that are often confusing and at times troubling. In April, the brand’s founder posted a now-deleted video asking for help in the comments, posting messages like “Help me 911” and “This is real.” But despite posts such as this indicating that Truaxe is unwell, he has denied past suggestions of mental health issues with posts such as this one from later in April in which he addresses people such as the brand’s former CFO Steven Kalpan for questioning his mental health.

“Steven Kaplan, your wife Danielle wrote that nasty email saying that I have mental health issues … you’re all jobless now,” he says in the Instagram video. “I don’t have mental health issues. Yesterday and the day before I was at risk when I called for help, and the idiots that said I had mental health issues: You should have helped me.”

Deciem also made headlines when the company’s Glassdoor reviews describing a hostile workplace and including accusations of sexual harassment, body-shaming, sexism, racism and more started to circulate online.

How exactly does Estée Lauder factor into this?

Beauty behemoth Estée Lauder Companies, who Truaxe name checks several times in the caption accompanying his announcement video, has been a minority shareholder of Deciem since 2017, owning 28 per cent of the company. Deciem shared the news on its own website with a letter from Truaxe specifically noting that it would be “nearly impossible” for Estée Lauder Companies to fire him. “While I do sincerely believe that ELC has embraced everything about us, the facts are nonetheless very clear: They have a minority shareholding position; they do not control our decisions or dictate our direction; and I continue to remain CEO (and there is documentation in place to make it nearly impossible to fire me),” the letter reads in part.

Has Deciem released an official statement?

Not at press time, but we’re watching the brand’s website, social channels and the newswires like hawks for updates.

Are the Deciem stores actually closed?

At present, it would appear that all of Deciem’s Canadian retail locations were closed Tuesday. According to CBC, calls to stores went unanswered. The brand’s website shows almost all of its nearly 30 stores in Canada, the U.S., the U.K., Mexico and the Netherlands as simply “closed.” Several would-be customers have also shared images on social media of what look to be closed Toronto locations. At this time, it’s unclear if this is a permanent closure.

Can you still shop online?

Yes, as of press time Deciem’s e-commerce site is still live and appears to be taking orders.

Are Deciem’s social channels still active?

The brand’s Instagram and Facebook pages were still live as of 5:45 p.m. EST on Oct. 9 (they do not have an official Twitter account) but Truaxe’s Oct. 8 announcement video was the last thing shared on Instagram.

So, could this be a marketing stunt?

Only time will tell if the move was a calculated one meant to boost sales (and Twitter certainly suggests that people are “stocking up” in light of the news) but as several savvy social media commenters pointed out, it would also be an illegal one.

Guido Grossi: l'Italia è ricattata, ma ha 4.200 miliardi di risparmi e 5.000 in case. Basta riesumare i Bot, e addio spread .
Come “smontare” il grande inganno e liberarsi del capestro del debito pubblico? Bastano 200 miliardi, “pescati” dall’enorme risparmio italiano, pari a 4.200 miliardi di euro (senza contare i 5.000 miliardi di patrimonio edilizio). Siamo un paese ancora ricchissimo: per questo ci stanno “rapinando”. Come uscirne? Recuperando il controllo della moneta. Ma la stretta del debito è risolvibile da subito: basta abilitare la Cassa Depositi e Prestiti. Obiettivo: offrire ai risparmiatori titoli-sicurezza, non speculativi, come ai tempi dei Bot. In pochi mesi, l’incubo dello spread sarebbe un ricordo. Lo Stato tornerebbe a finanziarsi con denaro italiano. Tutto ciò non accade per un solo motivo: manca la volontà politica. Se non potesse più “ricattare” lo Stato, un enorme sistema di potere finirebbe a gambe all’aria. Per questo non mollano, i boss della finanza che hanno “sequestrato” le nostre vite. Secondo Guido Grossi, ex manager Bnl, la politica ha rinunciato in modo folle al controllo della moneta. Prima, il cittadino portava i risparmi in una banca pubblica e quei soldi venivano investiti nell’economia reale, creando lavoro: lo Stato li usava per fare spesa pubblica. Oggi invece le banche private fanno solo speculazione, e i cittadini non possono più finanziare lo Stato, mentre gli interessi sempre più alti fanno salire l’indebitamento.
Ci hanno messo un cappio al collo, sostiene Grossi, intervistato da Ignazio Dessì su “Tiscali Notizie”. Una trappola: lo spread, il rating, il meccanismo perverso che porta lo Stato a svendere i beni pubblici, fino al caso drammatico della Grecia. La canzone è nota anche in Italia: abbassare il debito pubblico, chiedendo “sacrifici” ai cittadini, pena l’imminente disastro. Diventa un caso persino l’esiguo 2,4% di deficit nel Def gialloverde, per finanziare reddito di cittadinanza, Flat Tax e riforma della legge Fornero. Ma perché rastrellare soldi in prestito sul mercato finanziario estero, quando in Italia c’è una massa enorme di liquidità? Proprio l’internazionalizzazione del debito pubblico ha messo un cappio al collo agli Stati e impedisce loro di impostare liberamente le politiche economiche e sociali. Per questo, quello del debito pubblico è un grande inganno: Usa e Giappone hanno debiti record, eppure scoppiano di salute. Certo, americani e giapponesi sono sovrani: possono fare deficit per aumentare il Pil e non devono far approvare i bilanci a Bruxelles. Ma persino noi, sotto le forche caudine dell’Eurozona, potremmo uscire dal tunnel anche subito.
«L’obiettivo finale – sostiene Grossi – è riportare l’emissione monetaria sotto il controllo pubblico, sotto la politica. Ma la cosa da fare subito è smetterla di farci prestare i soldi dagli investitori istituzionali. Non ne abbiamo alcun bisogno». Oggi, un risparmiatore non compra più Bot o Cct. Non conviene. Gli unici che li comprano sono le banche centrali, i fondi di investimento. «Bisogna trasformare le emissioni», dice Grossi. «Negli anni ’70, Bot e Cct erano comprati dal sistema-Italia, dalle famiglie, dalle aziende e dalle banche italiane». Quando si è passati a chiedere i soldi agli “investitori istituzionali”, i titoli sono stati trasformati «sia nel modo in cui vengono offerti sul mercato, sia nella struttura del titolo stesso». Prima, i Btp erano una eccezione. «Erano nati per andare incontro alle esigenze degli speculatori: una durata lunga con un tasso fisso più alto dell’inflazione va bene sia a un “cassettista” (li compro, li tengo da parte, aspetto la scadenza e intanto guadagno più dell’inflazione), sia a uno speculatore o a un trader che continuamente compra e vende». La durata del Btp è lunga, e il prezzo si muove ogni volta che il tasso di mercato cambia. «Gli speculatori ci vanno a nozze». I risparmiatori, invece, chiedono semplicemente sicurezza: quella che avevano, quando lo Stato controllava la moneta e investiva sull’economia, prima che arrivasse l’Ue a impedirglielo, frenando i deficit.
Secondo Grossi bisogna tornare ai titoli di Stato di durata breve: al cittadino (che non fa speculazione) i soldi risparmiati possono servire da un momento all’altro. Un tempo c’erano i Bot a 3 mesi, comodissimi e sicuri. «Invece il Btp a 7 anni, che ho pagato 100, se lo rivendo dopo un anno può darsi valga 90. Il rischio in questo caso è molto più consistente. E magari, a me cittadino, correre quel rischio non interessa». Il Btp è solo «uno strumento per speculare sui tassi», adatto quindi alle grandi banche e ai fondi d’investimento. «Serve solo a chi vuol fare soldi con i soldi», e quindi «va gradualmente eliminato». Riassumendo: abbiamo “fabbricato” titoli su misura per gli speculatori, ai quali lasciamo anche il controllo dei meccanismi d’asta. Spiega Grossi: «Se io mi sono messo nella condizione di farmi prestare soldi dai mercati finanziari, è chiaro che quando faccio l’asta sto chiedendo sostanzialmente a loro di decidere le condizioni. E se di quei soldi non posso più farne a meno, è evidente che le condizioni man mano si adatteranno alle loro esigenze: quelle di guadagnare il più possibile».
Si può fare il contrario? Certo, basta volerlo. Sapendo che in Italia c’è ancora una massa enorme di liquidità (4.200 miliardi di risparmi) lo Stato può dire: cari cittadini italiani, vi offro l’1 o il 2% per un certo tempo, portate quello che volete. «Con quanto arriva mi ci vado a ricomprare i Btp sul mercato. Faccio crollare lo spread. Basta che arrivino 200 miliardi e noi gli investitori internazionali li salutiamo. Gli restituiamo i loro soldi, ma gli diciamo basta». Siamo in grado di farlo? Guido Grossi ne è certo. In Italia, spiega, si finisce col pagare 4 quello che avremmo potuto pagare 2. Funziona così: se mi scadono 30 miliardi di Btp, li devo andare a rinnovare. In un anno bisogna rinnovare circa 2-300 miliardi di euro (ogni mese, da 20 a 40 miliardi). «Per raccogliere tali cifre, cosa ci vuole a offrire ai cittadini un titolo adatto alle loro esigenze?». I nostri oltre 4.000 miliardi sono costituiti da depositi, fondi, assicurazioni e azioni. Senza contare gli immobili: un patrimonio da 5.000 miliardi. «Per questo siamo un paese ricco, e quei risparmi fanno gola a molti».
Oggi, quando i cittadini hanno risparmi vanno in banca o alla posta, dove c’è chi consiglia cosa comprare. Ma scatta un conflitto di interessi: «Chi ci consiglia e ci vende un Bot o un Cct guadagna una piccolissima commissione. Se ci vende invece un prodotto di investimento, più rischioso, guadagna molto di più. Per forza allora ci venderà quel prodotto lì, di cui non abbiamo bisogno. Qualcuno guadagna e magari noi ci rimettiamo, e in più evitiamo di finanziare lo Stato, come potremmo». Siamo arrivati a questo, spiega Grossi, perché il sistema finanziario e bancario è diventato privato. «Io ho lavorato alla Bnl, che era la banca del Tesoro. Quando sono entrato mi pagavano lo stipendio per fare il mio dovere istituzionale, difendere e tutelare il risparmio da una parte, e selezionare gli investimenti dall’altra. Non mi pagavano per guadagnare, per fare un profitto: mi pagavano per svolgere una importantissima funzione di interesse generale. Questa è la mission di un ente pubblico». Poi la banca è diventata una Spa, ed è arrivato il concetto della migliore efficienza. «In realtà ci ha portato a cambiare completamente l’ottica: la mission non è più la qualità del servizio, ma il fare soldi. Le banche sono diventate sempre più private, sempre più straniere, e amen».
Cosa si può fare? L’obiettivo fondamentale, per Grossi, è uno solo: «Recuperare tutto il controllo del sistema finanziario: è il nostro sistema vitale». Insiste: «Per una economia, per una sana società, è fondamentale. Può esserci sempre chi cerca di farci dei soldi, perché qualcuno ci toglierà sempre del sangue, ma bisogna che quel sistema sia messo sotto controllo in modo democratico e trasparente». Possiamo sempre imparare ad essere più efficienti? «Verissimo, ma comunque quel sistema era meglio di questo. Bisogna recuperare la distinzione tra prodotti di risparmio e di investimento». Negli anni Trenta, gli Stati Uniti guidati da Roosevelt uscirono dalla Grande Depressione – innescata dalla speculazione di Wall Street – proprio in quel modo: separando le banche d’affari dagli istituti di credito ordinario, non autorizzati a giocare in Borsa il risparmio di famiglie e aziende. A fare argine c’era una legge, il Glass-Steagall Act. La rimosse dopo mezzo secolo Bill Clinton, messo alle strette dallo scandalo Lewinsky. Proprio Clinton fece volare, di colpo, l’economia neoliberista basata sulla speculazione finanziaria senza più freni: quella che oggi sta strangolando l’economia reale, ulteriormente rallentata – in Europa – dagli assurdi limiti di spesa imposti dai trattati-capestro dell’Ue, che disabilitano la spesa pubblica lasciando campo libero alle privatizzioni selvagge.
Ai cittadini, sostiene Guido Grossi, bisogna tornare innanzitutto a offrire prodotti di risparmio, anche attraverso aste differenziate. Il player giusto, in Italia? La Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, che all’80% è ancora posseduta dallo Stato. «Oggi viene utilizzata per finanziare grandi interventi. Viaggia con Bancoposta. Nessuna delle due è però una banca. Messe insieme, fanno la funzione della banca: perché Bancoposta raccoglie i risparmi e Cassa Depositi e Prestiti li investe. Entrambe però risentono dell’ottica privatistica». Bisognerebbe invece reindirizzarne il management e la “mission”, sostiene Grossi: «Se io oggi vado a Bancoposta, mi propongono né più né meno prodotti di investimento, come qualunque banca o assicurazione. In una banca pubblica mi devono invece proporre qualcosa di diverso: un deposito semplice, un titolo di Stato. Cassa Depositi e Prestiti invece può fare quegli investimenti pubblici di cui c’è enorme bisogno». Attenzione: la Germania sta già facendo, con la Bundesbank, quello che noi continuiamo a non fare con Bankitalia.
«Quando ci sono le aste dei titoli (bund), il Tesoro tedesco cerca di orientare il prezzo: non lascia cioè i mercati liberi di fare ciò che vogliono». Berlino usa due strumenti: se non c’è domanda sufficiente per assorbire la quantità di titoli proposta, la parte invenduta viene parcheggiata presso la Bundesbank. Non che la banca centrale li compri, perché l’Ue glielo vieta. Quei titoli vengono “parcheggiati”, e al momento opportuno saranno collocati. «E’ come se si allungassero i tempi dell’asta: questa dura fino a quando il mercato capisce che non può avere più di quello che il Tesoro tedesco è disposto a pagare». In definitiva, in questo modo, «si aggira in definitiva l’articolo 123 del Trattato di Maastricht», che è palesemente iniquo. Poi c’è il secondo strumento, cioè l’utilizzo dell Kwf (Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau). E’ una grande banca pubblica, «non dissimile dalla nostra Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, perché utilizzata per i grandi investimenti».
La Kfw, ricordava tempo fa Paolo Barnard, può intervenire nelle aste a comprare direttamente i titoli, grazie a un cavillo: è una banca ad azionariato pubblico, controllata dal governo, ma fornalmente resta un ente “di diritto privato”. Lo erano anche Bnl, Unicredit, Banca di Roma, Comit, San Paolo, Banco di Napoli e Banco di Sicilia. «Dopo, però, sono diventate tutte private, e la maggior parte straniere», ricorda Grossi. In ogni caso, adottando il sistema tedesco, ci basterebbe la Cassa Depositi e Prestiti: «Potrebbe comprare in Italia l’invenduto». Tradotto: «Se sto facendo un’asta marginale e vedo che il prezzo sale troppo, può interviene la Cassa e comprarne una parte, poi rivenderla nei giorni successivi sul mercato, come fa la Kfw. E come fanno anche in Francia con la Bpi, la banca pubblica per gli investimenti. Ed è giusto». Sottolinea Grossi: «Non c’è bisogno di chiedere il permesso a nessuno, per questi interventi: nessuna norma nazionale o internazionale li vieta. Non è che sbagliano loro a farlo, sbagliamo noi a non farlo». Che cosa stiamo aspettando?

Come “smontare” il grande inganno e liberarsi del capestro del debito pubblico? Bastano 200 miliardi, “pescati” dall’enorme risparmio italiano, pari a 4.200 miliardi di euro (senza contare i 5.000 miliardi di patrimonio edilizio). Siamo un paese ancora ricchissimo: per questo ci stanno “rapinando”. Come uscirne? Recuperando il controllo della moneta. Ma la stretta del debito è risolvibile da subito: basta abilitare la Cassa Depositi e Prestiti. Obiettivo: offrire ai risparmiatori titoli-sicurezza, non speculativi, come ai tempi dei Bot.

Many of us never get to see what goes on in the kitchens of our favorite restaurants. And that might be a good thing.

In a Reddit thread, chefs, cooks, and servers were asked which dishes they always avoid eating at restaurants. The responses ranged from enlightening to stomach-turning.

Here are a few types of foods that chefs and restaurant workers say they would never order. Although INSIDER can't independently verify this information, it's sure to make you think twice the next time you're handed a menu.

"The perfect breeding ground for bacteria ... "

"[Hollandaise sauce] is made of raw egg and butter (basically) that's kept hot enough to keep it thick, but not hot enough to cook the eggs. The perfect breeding ground for bacteria if it's not thrown out every four hours." — Redditor hendukush

           Comment on The October EVE Update Claims to Bring Balance by anypo8       Cache   Translate Page      
First off, I share your incredulity about "dungeons". I always thought it was stupid and I still do. "This isn't Space WoW" indeed. More importantly, as you pointed out, both the ECM change and the 'ceptors compromise are a pain in the behind for folks trying to peacefully travel in New Eden. The change to nullification means that I'm going to have to replace a whole bunch of Raptors I have floating around with Ares. This is expensive for a poor like myself, but even more so it's a giant pain. And who's to say they won't nerf the other 'ceptors next month? The ECM change, as you say, may or may not do much in fleet or small-gang battles, but it makes my maxed-out ECM skills pretty much useless at escaping gate camps, which was all I ever used them for anyway. Nerfing ECM drones is doubly annoying: now I've got a drone bay that's pointless to fill with anything for these ships. Sure would like those skill points back, and buying a skill extractor and injector just isn't going to cut it on a number of levels. Travel in New Eden has always been stupidly, cancerously slow and tedious. I've been winning EVE for several months, for reasons described previously. Realizing that I'm going to have to make all those tedious click-waits to get anywhere without even much of the minor safety from gatecamps I had before makes me extra-unlikely to come back. When I complained about all this in a highly-downvoted Reddit post today, CCP Fozzie responded with a video clip from The Holy Grail: "I fart in your general direction." Ah well. Fozzie's Mother smells of elderberries.

          Face Pie – The Halloween Pastry You Can’t Un-See      Cache   Translate Page      
A few months ago I saw a pie image on Twitter so creepy, and disturbing, that I actually questioned whether it was too terrifying to post as a video. Usually, Halloween-themed recipes have the opposite problem, as they are almost never actually scary, but that’s not an issue here. By the way, can someone get sued for giving people nightmares?

Anyway, I eventually traced the image back to what I assumed would be some sort of food blog, but it was actually someone’s Etsy shop, where they were selling inedible versions of this basic design. So, I wasn’t able to see how it was made, but did use their “face” as a rough guide, and despite being somewhat anatomically challenged, I thought this came out looking great. And by great, I mean terrible.

If you’re disturbed enough to make this, you can use our tourtière recipe for the crust and filling, which is exactly what I did here, except for whatever reason I added a touch of ketchup to the meat. Of course, this technique would work for topping any pie, including all your favorite fruit versions, and the next time cherries are in season, I may just have to give this one more try. Or not. We’ll see. In the meantime, if at all possible, please enjoy!

Who doesn't love internet drama?

I, for one, live for it. Watching someone get ratio'd on Twitter fills me with glee. If someone posts screenshots, I'll meticulously go through every shred of each snarky text. When I scroll past an argument on Facebook, I can't help but dive into the thread and digest every single comment.

Lurking around internet drama satisfies me more than any Hulu original ever could. When I need to get away from the real world, I turn to vitriolic threads for entertainment. On especially rough days, when I finally tire of bingeing beloved trash shows like Gossip Girl, I venture into the crème de la crème of drama: Reddit's r/relationships.  Read more...

Op LE en hoger zal het misschien meevallen maar goede kans dat de AK en M4 nog maar nauwelijks gekocht gaan worden in lagere ranks en dat iedereen daar Call of Duty Style rondloopt. Ben er zelf ook geen voorstander van.. Benieuwd naar hoe de lossbonus na pistol round gaat uitpakken. Als je ook maar 1 pistol kill hebt gemaakt (+300) heb je al genoeg geld voor Armor, Helmet en UMP waarmee je gewoon een serieuze kans op winnen hebt in de ronde erna (wat ook de bedoeling is van deze update). We gaan het zien! Ook wel benieuwd naar hoe dit in de professionele scene opgepakt gaat worden. Kan me goed voorstellen dat je nu situaties gaat krijgen waarin AK's gedropt gaan worden voor teamleden die zelf armor kopen zodat je bijvoorbeeld na een loss wel 2 teamleden hebt dit armor+helmet+AK zijn voor het maken van entry's. Na het innemen van de bombsite kun je de andere 3 spelers close corners laten houden.
          Tremila euro ai rom per andarsene. Ma due mesi dopo sono già tornati      Cache   Translate Page      
Doveva essere la "terza via" per il superamento dei campi rom a Roma, almeno secondo la sindaca, Virginia Raggi. Invece il rientro volontario assistito pagato dal comune ad alcuni nomadi che erano stati sgomberati a luglio scorso da uno degli insediamenti della Capitale, il camping River, conta già due ritorni. Dalla Romania all'Italia. Ma solo dopo aver incassato i soldi per partire, come ha raccontato lunedì Quarta Repubblica, di Nicola Porro.Sono trascorsi solo due mesi dalla partenza e da quel "viaggio" con cui la stessa sindaca Raggi è volata in Romania per verificare le condizioni delle famiglie rom che avevano accettato il progetto di rientro a Craiova, 300mila abitanti a sud-ovest del Paese. Strette di mano, bilaterali con il sindaco rumeno, incontri e sorrisi con le persone che per andarsene da Roma avevano aderito al piano offerto dal Campidoglio: 1.500 euro per partire e altrettanti da ricevere in seguito, su base mensile, una volta giunti in Romania. Tremila euro in tutto per ricominciare una nuova vita fuori dall'Italia.Doveva essere, insomma, un esempio di efficienza, almeno secondo i comunicati stampa di allora. La dimostrazione che superare i campi nomadi - come ci chiede l'Unione Europa, entro il 2021 - si può, pagando con i fondi Ue un progetto di inclusione. Invece, trascorse poche settimane, nel silenzio generale il primo nucleo familiare è di nuovo rientrato in città. Marito e moglie hanno incassato il denaro per lasciare l'Italia, ma poco dopo sono tornati con un pullman. Una volta arrivati in patria, si sarebbero ritrovati senza una casa, a dormire di nuovo in una baracca, seppur con la promessa di ricevere un'abitazione entro poco. "Per questo siamo tornati - hanno spiegato - la Raggi è venuta a Craiova, ha parlato con noi e con il nostro sindaco per una casa. Ci hanno dato 1.500 euro per partire ma poi più niente, dovevano darcene altri 1.500. Cinquecento li abbiamo spesi subito per il viaggio e gli altri soldi sono finiti. Là eravamo senza casa, in una baracca, al freddo". Casa che non hanno nemmeno in Italia, visto che dormono in una macchina, in un parcheggio: "Ma qui la vita è diversa, stiamo meglio". Il comune sa che siete qui? "Sì, abbiamo già parlato con loro". Dal Campidoglio confermano e assicurano che il caso sarà seguito dagli "operatori sociali che cercheranno di convincerli a riandare in Romania". Non è chiaro se a fronte di altri soldi. Ma la questione casa non è compito del comune di Roma ma di quello romeno, con cui è stata siglata una partnership che prevede il monitoraggio delle persone rimpatriate, affinché si verifichi che stanno cercando un lavoro: "I 1.500 euro dovevano bastare loro per sei mesi. E poi, è un po' come il reddito di cittadinanza, la logica è niente bonus a vuoto", filtra dal Campidoglio. Invece a vuoto ci è andato il primo contributo, visto che i beneficiari l'hanno intascato ma sono subito tornati in Italia. In tutto sono nove le famiglie, su 400 persone sgomberate dal campo, che hanno accettato il denaro. C'è da sperare che non decidano di rientrare anche gli altri. "È un caso. Il progetto funziona, ovvio che ci sono criticità e che qualcuno voglia tornare". Però così si tornerebbe anche ai rom per strada o in altre baracche. Con le casse del comune svuotate dai biglietti staccati per la Romania.
          Forza Italia sui conti inchioda i gialloverdi. E risale nei sondaggi      Cache   Translate Page      
Il cammino si annuncia lungo e complicato. La forza attrattiva di Matteo Salvini è evidentemente la cifra distintiva di questa stagione politica e di questi primi mesi di governo. La traversata del deserto, dunque, per Forza Italia è appena iniziata e non sarà facile risalire la corrente in un arco di tempo limitato.Se le politiche messe in campo dal vicepremier leghista nel contrasto all'immigrazione irregolare hanno messo le ali alla Lega che ha quasi raddoppiato i consensi rispetto alle elezioni di marzo, la questione diventa molto più complicata ora che ci si avvia verso il varo della manovra economica. Il risveglio dello spettro dello spread - con quello che questo può significare per il risparmio degli italiani - e la bocciatura dell'Europa hanno reso il percorso del governo accidentato. E per i partiti di opposizione arrivano i primi segnali di risveglio. L'ultimo sondaggio Tecné ad esempio regala a Forza Italia una boccata di ossigeno con il consenso che torna a salire dal 10,9 all'11,1. Una frenata si registra invece sia per la Lega, primo partito al 31,1 ma in discesa rispetto alla scorsa settimana di 1,1 punti, e per il Movimento Cinquestelle al 28,5 rispetto al 29,2 della settimana precedente. I numeri sorridono anche a Fratelli d'Italia che si attesta al 3,5 rispetto al 3,3 di sette giorni prima. Un piccolo spostamento in positivo c'è anche per il Pd, reduce dalla manifestazione di Piazza del Popolo, che passa dal 16,9 al 17%.Registrare per la prima volta un calo parallelo dei due partiti di governo è un evento che ha una sua rilevanza politica, anche se Lega e M5S possono contare su livelli di consenso comunque elevatissimi. Una tendenza al ribasso registrata anche dalla rilevazione Swg di lunedì sera. È chiaro che ora la vera prova sarà la manovra e l'attrazione fatale verso la spesa in deficit, con il pericolo di un effetto boomerang per le casse dello Stato. E in questo senso la bocciatura dell'Ufficio Parlamentare di Bilancio non appare un buon viatico. "Forza Italia chiederà, raccogliendo un terzo delle firme dei membri della Commissione Bilancio che il governo torni immediatamente in Parlamento a chiarire come vuole procedere. Adesso basta scherzare con i risparmi degli italiani", attacca Mariastella Gelmini."Attenzione a quello che diranno le agenzie di rating. Non ho alcuna simpatia per le agenzie, ma condizionano la Bce" dice Antonio Tajani. "Se la Bce non è più nelle condizioni di comprare titoli di Stato, perché l'Italia perde due gradini i nostri titoli diventano spazzatura. Ma qualora anche dovessero declassarci di un solo livello, gli investitori continuerebbero a fuggire. Già abbiamo perso 100 mld di investimenti. La situazione è molto preoccupante". Pertanto "fermatevi prima di mandare in fumo i risparmi degli italiani. Fermatevi, fermatevi, fermatevi". Un allarme rilanciato anche da Renato Brunetta per il quale è "assurdo che Salvini e Di Maio proseguano in questa loro battaglia contro tutti. I mercati finanziari sanno giocare a poker meglio di loro e alla fine vogliono sempre vedere le carte di chi li sfida". E se Matilde Siracusano denuncia che nel Nadef "non c'è nulla per forze armate, polizia e vigili del fuoco", Giorgio Mulè torna a segnalare che "gran parte del reddito di cittadinanza andrà agli stranieri. La verità è che non c'è una strategia per far ripartire il Paese".
          L'«eretico» che odia la flat tax e ama il reddito di cittadinanza      Cache   Translate Page      
Roma - Il neokeynesismo eretico elevato all'ennesima potenza. Andrea Roventini, l'economista vicino al Movimento 5 Stelle e fino al 4 marzo ministro dell'Economia del "team Di Maio", è un giovane professore associato alla Scuola Sant'Anna di Pisa ed è un allievo di Giovanni Dosi, un altro libero pensatore che ha ispirato le teorie pentastellate. A nobilitare il curriculum del quarantenne emiliano è però l'aver firmato insieme al suo mentore e al Nobel per l'economia Joseph Stiglitz un paper nel quale si sottolinea, in estrema sintesi, come i modelli interpretativi tradizionali non siano sufficienti a spiegare l'alternanza tra cicli recessivi ed espansivi.L'idea-guida degli intellettuali come Roventini e Dosi è che il mercato non sia in grado di autoregolarsi come sostengono gli economisti classici (da Smith a Friedman), ma che abbia bisogno di un "aiutino" non solo attraverso gli investimenti ma anche agendo sulla leva della redistribuzione del reddito. Ossia adottando misure come il reddito di cittadinanza che aiutino a "tamponare" le disuguaglianze. Allo stesso modo, si può ridurre l'incidenza della variabile "psicologica" dei consumi rendendo meno flessibile il mercato del lavoro. Se il posto è fisso, il dipendente spende di più perché sa di non dover risparmiare per i tempi di magra.Ma come si finanziano questi trasferimenti di reddito all'interno di uno stesso sistema economico? Ovviamente tassando i più ricchi. L'assunto di base, infatti, è che gli individui con redditi più alti tendano ad accumulare patrimonio mentre i "proletari" consumano ciò che guadagnano. Di qui la corrispondenza d'amorosi sensi tutta "socialista" come le patrimoniali. E la simmetrica avversione per la flat tax. "È un intervento sconsiderato: costa tantissimo e non stimola la crescita", dichiarò Roventini al Corriere bollandola come "un regalo ai ricchi che aumenta la disuguaglianza". Analogamente l'economista è un sostenitore dell'allargamento della base imponibile con l'eliminazione di molte tax expenditures. "Si possono fare tagli mirati alla spesa pubblica realizzando il piano Cottarelli e tagliando agevolazioni fiscali improduttive", ha detto al Sole 24 Ore quando era candidato ministro a Cinque stelle.Queste teorie piacciono non solo ai grillini, ma anche a sinistra. Nel giugno scorso Dosi e Roventini firmarono con il collega renziano Nannicini e con Marco Leonardi una lettera aperta al Corriere chiedendo il superamento del Fiscal compact e l'introduzione di un sussidio di disoccupazione europeo. Il professore non assolutamente un outsider.
          Tria nel mirino dei grillini. Si scalda l'economista d'area      Cache   Translate Page      
La poltrona di Giovanni Tria resta in bilico. Il M5S è pronto a giocare la carta Andrea Roventini per sostituire il vertice del ministero dell'Economia. La trattativa per un cambio in corsa in via XX settembre è spuntata lunedì sera in diretta tv, ad Otto e Mezzo. In collegamento da Parigi c'è Roventini, professore associato alla Scuola superiore Sant'Anna di Pisa, attualmente in trasferta come ricercatore provvisorio all'Università Sorbonne. Ma soprattutto l'uomo che Luigi di Maio voleva alla guida del Tesoro. Prima l'ex premier Mario Monti, poi la Gruber incalzano il prof sull'ipotesi di sostituire Tria alla guida del Mef. Tutti si aspettano la smentita secca. E invece, Roventini non esclude il ritorno a breve in Italia per soffiare la poltrona a Tria. È la conferma di come l'opzione di defenestrare il titolare dell'Economia sia oggi sul tavolo della maggioranza. "Fare il ministro non è semplice ma è una bella sfida. Stare chiuso in un ufficio a scrivere articoli senza mettere in pratica le proprie idee non è quello a cui penso" - dice Roventini a Otto e Mezzo. Parole che spingono Lilli Gruber ad essere più diretta: "C'è la possibilità che lei sia chiamato a fare il ministro se Tria si dimette?". "Vediamo gli sviluppi", ribatte l'economista grillino. Messaggio che rende debolissima la posizione del ministro dell'Economia. È da almeno una settimana che Di Maio pare abbia allertato Roventini. Ragionando sull'ipotesi di far saltare Tria. Il volto dialogante, mostrato dall'economista pentastellato dalla Gruber, è un altro indizio: nessun braccio di ferro con l'Europa. E poi il riconoscimento in tv dell'importante funzione svolta dai mercati. Considerati, fino a oggi, i nemici della maggioranza pentaleghista. Due mosse che servono ad aprire un canale con il Presidente della Repubblica Sergio Mattarella, cui spetta l'ultima parola sul nome del ministro dell'Economia. Il profilo di Roventini è una garanzia per l'ala grillina dell'esecutivo. Basta rileggere l'intervista, rilasciata il 25 settembre a Business Insider, in cui l'economista boccia flat tax e cancellazione della Fornero. Posizione con la quale si è attirato, però, le antipatie di Matteo Salvini. C'è poi da superare lo scoglio più grande: la benedizione del Colle. Il Quirinale, fino ad oggi, ha offerto un ombrello istituzionale a Tria. Non sarà una passeggiata convincere Mattarella ad accettare un avvicendamento in via XX settembre. Il ministro Tria avverte l'accerchiamento e prova a uscire dall'angolo. Ieri un'altra giornata di passione: Bankitalia e Corte dei Conti hanno smontato il Def. Il ministro è prigioniero di Salvini e Di Maio. E anche del ministro per gli Affari europei Paolo Savona che negli studi di Porta a Porta ammette: "Il mio compito è quello di spingerlo un po". Nel pomeriggio, Tria è rimasto inchiodato per tre ore in commissione Bilancio. Offrendo l'immagine plastica del sentiero stretto e sotto costante controllo della Lega in cui si muove. Il presidente della commissione Claudio Borghi ha spento il microfono al ministro mentre Renato Brunetta lo incalzava con alcune domande. In particolare, sull'ipotesi di modificare il Def nel caso in cui lo spread salga. Reazioni che certificano il nervosismo nella maggioranza. Cosa temono i leghisti? Forse che il ministro Tria possa riconoscere un'amara verità. Verità, che ieri è stata già accennata a piccole dosi: la cancellazione della Fornero va rivista. Mentre il reddito di cittadinanza diventa un investimento di cittadinanza.
          La maggioranza scricchiola sulle "bombe" fisco e ponte      Cache   Translate Page      
"Andiamo dritti come un treno", dicono a Palazzo Chigi, e pazienza se la corsa può finire contro il muro di Bruxelles, dentro la voragine dei mercati o nel buco nero del taglio delle tasse. Il governo non arretra, "deficit al 2,4 per cento e le altre misure qualificanti non si toccano". Ma sotto tanta granitica certezza, ecco che spuntano diverse, profonde crepe. Dai numeri della manovra al decreto fiscale voluto da Salvini, dal ponte di Genova ai rapporti con l'Europa, fino alle alleanze internazionali in vista delle elezioni della prossima primavera. Lo scontro sommerso tra Lega e Cinque stelle riguarda ormai quasi tutti i settori di intervento e qualcuno in Transatlantico ora si chiede: quanto durerà la maggioranza giallo-verde? Reggeranno in caso di bocciatura della Ue e di tempesta sulle piazze finanziarie.La prima mina può esplodere già oggi alle 19, quando la pace fiscale arriverà il tavolo del Consiglio dei ministri e M5s chiederà un rinvio. Molti i dubbi sul provvedimento. La Lega lo considera una bandiera irrinunciabile, però i grillini non sono convinti che il condono riguardi non solo le sanzioni ma pure il capitale delle cartelle esattoriali inevase. Si prevede un braccio di ferro, tuttavia difficilmente Salvini mollerà su uno dei suoi cavalli di battaglia.In compenso si litiga anche sulla ricostruzione a Genova. Danilo Toninelli, contestato dagli sfollati infuriati per i ritardi, si intestardisce nel voler affidare i lavori a Fincantieri. La Lega invece, forte del parere della Corte dei Conti, vuole una gara europea.E divergenze, o quanto meno accenti diversi, stanno emergendo pure sul Def. Una spia? Il nervosismo di Giovanni Tria, al quale il leghista Claudio Borghi, presidente della commissione Bilancio della Camera, deve spegnere il microfono mentre abbozza una replica alle accuse di Renato Brunetta. Il ministro, messo in minoranza nelle scorse settimane e costretto a ingoiare un deficit diverso da quello concordato con Bruxelles, è improvvisamente diventato il più strenuo difensore della "manovra del popolo". Era "l'uomo del Colle", il controllore dei conti, adesso invece si è trasformato in un ultrà, soffre il fiato sul collo di Paolo Savona, che per molti è di fatto vero ministro.Qualcuno prevede un rimpasto a breve, con un professore che cede il posto a un altro professore. Intanto, forse per portarsi avanti con il lavoro, l'uomo del famoso piano B teorizza una serie di "tagliandi trimestrali" alla manovra, nonostante il ministero smentisca. "Il Def è addirittura moderato - insiste Savona - però se ci sfugge lo spread bisognerà cambiare la Finanziaria". E sono le stesse cose che sostiene Massimo Garavaglia, leghista, viceministro dell'Economia: "Se la forbice tra Btp italiani e Bund tedeschi dovesse allargarsi, se la Borsa continuasse ad andare male, la legge di Bilancio cambierà e si andrà di più verso il lato sviluppo". Insomma, prepariamoci ad archiviare il costoso reddito di cittadinanza. Luigi Di Maio sarà d'accordo?Un altro terreno di scontro è il posizionamento internazionale della maggioranza giallo-verde. Roberto Fico, a Bruxelles in missione diplomatica e alla ricerca di spazi, chiede alla Commissione di dialogare con l'Italia, flirta con Pierre Moscovici e boccia la possibile alleanza populista con il Front National. "Siamo contenti di apprendere che la strada del presidente della Camera non sarà quella di Matteo Salvini e Marine Le Pen - replica Mara Bizzotto, capodelegazione del Carroccio -. Aspettando un Maduro europeo, preferisce la compagnia delle vecchie mummie come Junker".

          10W+文章背后的科学:内容生命周期的五个阶段       Cache   Translate Page      

编者按:文章阅读量达到10万+被认为是一篇文章成功的标志。但是10万+文章都有哪些特点呢?数据分析师Andrew Tate通过Google Analytics研究了那些10万+文章的流量构成与走势特点,总结出了一套成功的模板。当然,那些其实只是成功的结果,关键还是看文章标题、内容以及营销。

所有成功的内容营销套路都是一样的。

至少,这是我们的直觉,我们希望能证实这一点。我们已经见过很多火起来的文章,在几个月甚至几年后仍然带来稳定的有机流量。我们也目睹了很多文章的失败,在发表1、2天之后就流量变成了一条平线。

博客文章往往遵循若干类似的“形态”——也就是说,Google Analytics上面的数据点能够透露这篇文章的故事。无需知道太多有关关键词数量或流量来源你就能解读这些形状。你甚至可能还可以说出这篇文章在发表的几周内会不会火或者哑火。但是这一切都是没有考证的猜测。我们希望找出成功的指向性模式——更重要的是,具有预测性的模式。所以我们非常仔细地考察了一些浏览量超过10万的文章,想看看我们的观察是不是有数据支撑。

最后的结果提供了一个成功的模板,但也为衡量你的内容提供了新的、更加科学的思考方式。

内容生命周期的5个阶段

把内容看作是病毒或者常青树的想法都是有局限性的。要想成功,理想情况下一篇文章必须既要有短期的吸引力又要有长期的参与度(点赞、转发、评论、下载等)。其在Google Analytics上的表现形态能透露这个秘密。你大概已经见过很多文章的流量一开始扶摇直上,然后直落九天。

我们把10万+的生命周期内页面访问量作为一篇文章成功的标杆,但当然这不是定义成功的唯一方式。不过,显然进入10万+俱乐部的文章已经带来了很好的价值。

这个俱乐部成员大多有非常相似的形状。这里就是一个例子:

例子#1:原生型成功

AdEspresso,《我们分析了752,626条Facebook广告,以下是我们的发现

这篇文章,跟其他同样成功的文章一样,走势经历了5个不同阶段:

  1. 尖峰期,文章刚刚发表的时候。

  2. 低谷期,看起来好像增长停滞了一样。

  3. 增长期,页面浏览量在几个月内增加了。

  4. 高原期,增长进入平稳状态。

一开始的尖峰期让这条长尾显得非常突兀。这篇文章绝大部分的页面浏览量都是在尖峰期获得的。(AdEspresso有13篇文章拿到了10万+。这一点令人印象深刻。)

这里是另一篇有着相同增长形态的10万+浏览量的例子,来自Appcues。只是尖峰期没那么突兀,所以显得增长其更明显一些:

例子#2:长尾型成功

Appcues,《5个最好的用户引导例子

我们仔细看看例子#2.如果把流量来源分解一下的话,就可以看出不同阶段的浏览量驱动力来自哪里:

一开始的尖峰是社区链接(橙色)驱动的,比如GrowthHackers、Inbound、Designer News、Reddit以及The Hacker News等。另外还有些流量来自电子邮件(绿色)和直接流量(红色)。几周后出现了第二次隆起,这次是来自电子邮件和社交媒体(青色),是那些渠道第二轮宣传的结果。

然后整体的力量情况就平缓地走了几周。第二次电子邮件驱动尖峰与增长期开始之间的时间窗口超过3个月。在此期间,总体流量每周大概涨100左右。看起来文章也就这样了。

不过接下来就进入了第二个阶段——增长期。增长慢慢地来自于有机的搜索流量。就这篇文章而言,有机流量在25周这个标志时间后就开始出现了。到了那个时点有机的搜索流量成为这篇文章所有流量的重要组成部分。

在大概前半年的时间里这篇文章都有流量进账,其中大多数来自直接浏览、电子邮件以及推荐。但在下半年,有机流量开始接管,从仅占流量一小部分发展到占据了文章流量的绝大部分。

我们在低谷期(大概是12周到25周之间)也看到了类似的情况,有机流量也只是占总流量的一小部分。头条的数字基本上已经持平,但是有机流量已经开始压倒直接流量、邮件流量、社区以及社交流量的颓势,成为主导。

巅峰的时候有机流量占到了这篇文章的7.4%。对于增长来说,决定成功的并不是绝对数,而是有机/其他流量的占比。

到达1年的标志点时,文章过渡到了第四阶段——高原期。此时文章已经升到了相关关键词的第一位,在此类关键词搜索量中排行第一。此后一直保持该排名长达一年多,直到流量开始下降。

如果我们仔细看看这篇文章不同阶段的流量占比的话,我们会看到:

约97%的流量是在一开始那波阅读高峰之后积累下来的。更令人不可思议的是90%的流量是在文章已经上线6个月后。

第五阶段——下降期——在这篇文章也体现得很明显。发生这种情况是因为更新的内容取代了这篇文章并且开始蚕食其有机流量,导致总体流量下降,或者当目标关键词的搜索量下降时出现。

我们再看看同样形态的两个例子,也是来自10万+的文章。第一篇是2015年发表的:

例子#3:缓慢下降

Wistia,《用佳能5D Mark III录制音频

一开始的尖峰期、增长期以及高原期都是看得见的。在本例中,这篇文章在过去2年一直在缓慢下降,尽管每周仍然给博客带来200左右相当数量的浏览量。鉴于这篇文章的持久价值,它已经为一次内容刷新做好了准备。只需要把标题和部分内容修改一下,下降的趋势就会停止或者反转。

这是另一个例子,这篇是2014年发表的:

例子#4:持续增长

I Done This,《贝索斯两块披萨团队规则背后的科学

I Done This的这篇文章似乎没有遭遇下降之苦,即便是在4年之后。实际上,其渐进性的增长一直都在持续。

那么为什么Wistia的文章会呈现出下降趋势而这篇却逆势上扬呢?差别在于这两篇文章的主题。第一篇(长衰期)文章的主题是硬件相关的,而这是有时间窗口期的。第二篇(漫长的增长阶段)讲的东西是真正不受时间限制的。

那么从中可以总结出什么东西呢?

  • 分发很重要。我们看到的几乎所有成功的文章都经历过一个强劲的尖峰期。这初始的流量让你能够播下有机的种子。大家必须看到你的文章才能链接它。此外,索索算法可以收集大家如何跟你的新文章互动的数据(停留时间、跳出率等,这些都是排名要考虑的因素)。让文章通过Reddit、Twitter尤其是你的邮件列表流传出去对于认知度非常重要,这种认知会带来随后可帮助推动有机流量的链接。

  • 来自搜索的增长。但如果你想要在Hacker News上引起轰动但又没想过第一天过去之后的该怎么办的话,你的文章充其量只会昙花一现,你的博客不会增长。此外,过了一定时候,一开始的阅读尖峰似乎就不能增加后续流量的规模或者速度了——持续的成功更多的跟网页优化、内容质量以及永不过时的主题有关。

  • 体量决定你的博客规模。有机流量的天花板很容易测量。如果每一个目标关键词你都是排名靠前的话,那你的流量也会靠前。选好能推动流量和转化率的关键词组合(在漏斗的中间和底部)。每一个都会提供他们自己的价值。

  • 下降不可避免。几乎在所有阶段。长青的内容还可以持续增长好几年,但是其他网站会想办法把你从搜索结果前列挤掉。如果你今天站在了那个位置上的话,要想让它明年还能保持位置你仍然需要努力。

最后一条总结——这个需要时间。前面提到的成功的文章都经过了多年的积累。一开始的尖峰期不大可能就产生10万+的流量,但是有机的流量一夜之间发展出10万+也不可能。积累这两种流量都需要时间,不过你早早就能看出自己是否朝着正确的方向前进。

你的文章会不会火?以下是需要注意的地方

在发表1、2年之后分析一篇文章的成功或者失败很容易,但是你能早早就说出一篇文章能否在搜索中获得关注吗?

这个问题归结为你能否到达阶段三,也就是增长期。如果你在6个月之内达到有机增长的斜率,那文章就是成功的。如果在低谷期没有出现升势,你就不会有增长。

下面这个例子是一篇来自Amplitude的文章。发表于2016年,这篇文章没有到达10万+,但显然正在实现的路上:

例子#5:成功不可避免

Amplitude,《关于环比增长率你犯的3个错误

这篇文章比之前的#1例子(AdEspresso)和#2(Appcues)到达阶段三都要早得多。一开始的尖峰期是通过邮件实现的,不过在3个月内这篇文章就发展到了有机搜索流量。阶段二几乎不存在。

当我们查看一下不同渠道对流量的贡献时,在半年之内有机的贡献率已经超过了90%。这是成功的关键——有机流量确立优势越快,显著(和被动)的流量变化就能出现越快。你可以通过在尖峰期过后投入时间到推广和建立链接来缩短低谷期。你也可以更新内容和优化网页SEO来改进成功的机率。

这篇文章浏览量在继续增长。它还没有达到高原期。考虑到目前其浏览量约为75000,所以突破10万+指日可待。

并不是所有文章都要达到10万+才能被认为是成功的。一篇文章可以实现的总浏览量要卡其目标关键词的搜索量。小众型的文章在自身的局限内也可以成功。下面就是一篇来自Clearbit的文章例子,其浏览量未必能达到10万+,但是仍然可以被视为是成功的:

例子#6:更小的有机胜利

Clearbit,《选择机会的现代指南

这篇文章的尖峰期主要是由直接流量驱动的,不过后者随后就出现了下挫,然后增长量被有机搜索取代。增长期的斜率较为平缓,但仍然很明显,而且是在6个月之内开始的。经过1年之后,增长看起来达到了稳定状态。

ProfitWell的这篇文章也能看到同样的趋势,尽管其增长期持续更长:

例子#7:搜索量创造天花板

ProfitWell,《SaaS是如何进行收入确认的

像这样的文章流量受限于主题的小众性。但是——这个“但是”很重要——这篇文章是直接面向他们其中一款产品的买家角色的。那些人通过搜索找到了这篇文章然后加以阅读,这些人群正是这家公司希望接触的人。

当然,这未必总能见效。而且经常不见效。下面就是一个例子,这篇文章出自一家成功的公司的成功博客,但是从未到达增长期。低谷期变成了一条平线:

这篇文章有48%的流量是第一天取得的。迄今为止只有7.2%的流量是来自于搜索。这是极其常见的。我们上面用来作为例子的10万+俱乐部的文章都是异类。如果你希望在发布数天乃至数周之后将会带来很多流量的话,以下是需要注意的一些地方:

  1. 小规模的初始尖峰。如果你在第一周看不到很好的文章流量的话,这并不意味着失去一切但的确意味着反向链接不会到来。有了这个尖峰意味着大家意识到了你的内容。这是重要的第一步。

  2. 逐周的有机增长。尤其是头6个月,你应该每周都能看到文章流量的稳步增长。这意味着文章已经站稳了脚跟,而且这股势头会导致飞轮效应——看到文章内容的人越多,他们链接转发的机会就越多,从而改善了排名并曝光给更多的人。

  3. 来自长期流量的超大规模回报。Tom Tunguz说“tomtunguz.com上面的文章第一天产生的浏览量通常只有总量的1/3。”我们的发现也一样。对于前面提到的那些文章来说,我们发现出自第一周的流量<10%。成功的博客文章~90%的流量是在此后产生的。

这一点很令人启发。情况当然会因人而异。但利用Google Analytics通过上述5个阶段的视角来分析的话,你就能理解流量的“成功”是什么样的,进而了解到什么东西对你的读者有效。

内容营销的复合效应

成功的文章是通过好的初始分发和稳定的有机增长发展流量的。成功的博客是通过将成功的文章彼此链接发展起来的。

本文提到的第一篇文章其实只是AdEspresso博客众多10万+文章中的一篇。当我们把表现最出色的文章叠加到一起时,就能看到有机增长是如何导致博客整体流量的增长的:

这只是流量表现排名前10周浏览量达到了20000的文章。AdEspresso已经发表了几千篇文章。他们博客的总体流量是这样的:

他们的周流量几乎达到了15万。这纯粹是通过内容营销的复合效应实现的。比如一篇文章链接另一篇文章等等。只要你能够定期达到增长期,你就可以发展出一个非常大型的博客。

博客甚至还有涌现属性——也就是总体大于局部之和。个体文章表现越出色,搜索引擎越会将你的博客视为一流资源并将你排名靠前。

但是这种成功是建立在个体文章的基础上的。那些文章必须表现出色。当你知道了成功的迹象时,你就可以钻研在初始和长期分发方面哪些因素对你读者起作用,哪些不起作用。这样一来,你就能不断地复制成功,在一篇篇好文章的基础上做出一个好的博客来。

          AFRICA/SUDAFRICA - Summit sul lavoro: “Occorre coinvolgere di più donne e giovani”, dice la Commissione “Giustizia e Pace”      Cache   Translate Page      

Johannesburg - “Il problema della disoccupazione in Sudafrica ha il volto delle donne e dei giovani. Ci aspettiamo quindi che le donne e i giovani disoccupati siano ben rappresentati in qualsiasi piattaforma creata per affrontare la crisi della disoccupazione. Non si può parlare di loro senza di loro” ha affermato Sua Ecc. Mons. Abel Gabuza, Vescovo di Kimberly e Presidente della Commissione Episcopale “Giustizia e Pace” della SACBC , in un appello lanciato al Presidente sudafricano Cyril Ramaphosa perché valuti una più ampia partecipazione al prossimo summit sul lavoro previsto il prossimo anno.
Mons. Gabuza si è felicitato che il partito al governo sembra aver finalmente ammesso che gli obiettivi del piano di sviluppo nazionale non sono realistici. “Speriamo che questo porti a consultazioni efficaci con tutte le parti interessate sugli adeguamenti necessari per adattarsi all'attuale clima economico”
Mons. Gabuza si è anche detto contento "per l’azione del Presidente per quanto riguarda il piano economico di stimolo, oltre che la sua encomiabile decisione di istituire un fondo per le infrastrutture".
La popolazione sudafricana soffre la recensione che ha colpito il Paese, l'aumento dei prezzi dei generi di prima necessità e l’incremento della disoccupazione. Diverse componenti della società civile hanno chiesto "il reddito di cittadinanza e una seria revisione dei sussidi salariali per i giovani. Speriamo che il presidente e il suo gabinetto prestino attenzione critica a queste raccomandazioni” ha concluso Mons. Gabuza.
Il summit sul lavoro di quest’anno si è tenuto dal 4 al 5 ottobre. Secondo il presidente Ramaphosa le iniziative e gli accordi sull'occupazione concordati dai partecipanti porteranno alla creazione di 275.000 posti di lavoro all'anno.
I dati sull’impiego in Sudafrica mostrano che nonostante la crescita dell'occupazione di 206.000 posti di lavoro nel secondo trimestre del 2018, il tasso di disoccupazione è del 27,2%. Quello giovanile è del 52,4% . In linea con il piano di sviluppo nazionale, il governo intende aumentare il numero delle persone occupate dagli attuali 11 milioni a 24 milioni entro il 2030.

True aficionados of the earthly apocalypse cannot fail to have noted the deepening pessimism in discourses on what is often euphemistically referred to as “climate change”, but what should be designated “environmental catastrophe”. The Paris Agreement of 2015 conceded the need to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, albeit without binding nations to either achieve this specific target or impose specific binding targets in turn on the worst offenders, namely the fossil fuel industries.

          Pros and cons of GMO crop farming [infographic]      Cache   Translate Page      

In the agricultural industry, recombinant DNA technology allows for DNA to be transferred from one organism to another, creating Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Four crops constitute the vast majority of the GM crop production: maize, canola, soybean, and cotton. Since 1995, GM crops have been grown commercially and the global area sown to these crops has expanded over 100-fold over the past two decades.

          Bioremediation: using microorganisms to clean up the environment      Cache   Translate Page      

Microorganisms are known for their ability to adapt to any environment. We can find them in the most hazardous places on Earth. Their invisible work has led to visible results ― terraforming the planet billions of years ago and converting it into the viable green world that is today. Their ability to utilize and adapt to any available substrate in order to gain energy kept the balance in the ecosystem until humans become dominant species.

In 1969, half a century ago, astronauts first landed on Earth’s sole moon. The first successful robotic landers touched down on the much more distant Venus and Mars in 1970 and 1976, respectively, and in the same decade spacecraft flybys provided the first, fleeting close-ups of Jupiter and Saturn. It was not until two decades […]

With over 10 million active researchers, more than 2 million scientific articles published each year, and an uncontrolled spread of bibliometric indicators, contemporary science is undergoing a profound change that is modifying consolidated procedures, ethical principles that were deemed inalienable and traditional mechanisms for the validation of scientific outputs that have worked successfully for the last century.

          Animal of the month: 8 facts about rabbits      Cache   Translate Page      

Popular as pets, considered lucky by some, and widely recognised as agricultural nuisances, rabbits are commonplace all over the world. Their cute, fluffy exterior hides the more ingenious characteristics of this burrowing herbivore, including specially-adapted hind legs, extra incisors, and prolific breeding capabilities. Whilst rabbits thrive in most areas, certain species face the common struggle of their specialist habitats being destroyed, and myxomatosis has devastated rabbit populations in the past, at one point destroying 99% of the rabbit population of the United Kingdom.

          The dilemma of ‘progress’ in science      Cache   Translate Page      

Most practicing scientists scarcely harbor any doubts that science makes progress. For, what they see is that despite the many false alleys into which science has strayed across the centuries, despite the waxing and waning of theories and beliefs, the history of science, at least since the ‘early modern period’ (the 16th and 17th centuries) is one of steady accumulation of scientific knowledge. For most scientists this growth of knowledge is progress. Indeed, to deny either the possibility or actuality of progress in science is to deny its raison d’être.

Pride is one of the most widely-recognised animal collectives in the world. We often picture lions among their family unit, whether they be standing proudly together or hunting down a doomed antelope. These famous social groups are usually formed of between three and ten adult females, two or three males, and the pride’s latest litters of cubs, and they live together (most of the time) across Africa and in the Gir Forest Sanctuary.

          Regifting ideas: How an obscure idea from animal breeding helps us to understand genome evolution      Cache   Translate Page      

One of the more satisfying aspects of science is that an often fairly technical or obscure idea from one field can later turn out to be a key guiding principle in another, rather distant, field. One such example is a historical result from the theory of animal breeding that now provides critical insight into the way evolution structures genomes.

          Animal of the month: 10 facts about lions      Cache   Translate Page      

Lions have enchanted humans since early Antiquity, and were even represented in European cave paintings from 35,000 years ago. They are regularly the main characters in folklore and allegory, appearing everywhere from African folktales to the Bible. It is not hard to see why lions are so ubiquitously revered. Their fearsome yet stunning appearance, combined with their endearing hunting tactics and formidable roar, answers any questions as to why early societies named the lion ‘King of the Beasts’, and indeed explains why this name is still used today.

          Animal of the Month: 4 figures behind orca captivation beyond Blackfish      Cache   Translate Page      

“You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince (1943). The 2013 release of the documentary Blackfish revolutionized the way the world has since focused on orcas. Yet orca captivity in the United States and Canada predates the documentary by almost five decades. So who was behind the plight of these orcas? Using Jason M. Colby’s Orca: How We Came to Know and Love the World’s Greatest Predator,  we compiled a list of figures behind the half century of orca captivity beyond Blackfish.

With their huge, sharp teeth and menacing demeanor, it’s no wonder this ocean predator has long struck fear into the hearts of many. Thanks to films like Jaws and Sharknado, sharks have gained a reputation for killing and eating humans, yet there are under 100 unprovoked shark attacks each year, and even fewer fatalities—you’re more likely to be killed by lightning or a bee sting than you are by a shark!

          Animal of the Month: 5 facts you should know about misnomered orcas      Cache   Translate Page      

For centuries, orcas have accrued a myriad of different names: Orcinus orca (which translates roughly as “demon from hell”), asesinas de ballena (whale killers), Delphinus orca, grampus, thrasher, blackfish, killer whale, to name a few. The names of these animals are overtly violent, but what do we actually know about the alleged “demons from hell”? This month, we want look at the facts about killer whales, and debunk the centuries-old mystery and fear surrounding orcas.

          Angling for less harmful algal blooms      Cache   Translate Page      

Blooms bring to mind the emerging beauty of spring—flowers blossoming and trees regaining their splendor. These blooms, unlike spring flowers, are odorous, unpleasant, and potentially toxic. They deter families from engaging in water-related recreational activities such as going to the shore. They discourage anglers from going fishing, which, in turn, affects those who depend on the local fishing economy.

The impact of roads on wildlife (both directly through wildlife-vehicle collisions, and indirectly due to factors such as habitat fragmentation) has likely increased over time due to expansion of the road network and increased use and number of vehicles. In the UK, for example, there were only 4.2 million vehicles on the roads in 1951, compared to 37.3 million by the end of 2016.

Orangutans quite literally are “persons of the forest,” at least according to their Malay name (orang means “person” and hutan is “forest”). But this is more than just a name. As well as their distinctively “human” qualities, these large charismatic fruit-eaters are also gardeners, forest engineers responsible for spreading and maintaining a wide array of tree species.
