          Costly city homes, crumbling country houses – Finland's top 5 housing problems      Cache   Translate Page      

Parliament’s audit committee issued a report on Tuesday outlining five major problems with housing policy in Finland. The committee concluded that policy has been inconsistent while the state has taken a back seat and public costs have been skyrocketing.

The report highlights what the committee sees as the main problems affecting Finnish housing policy and proposes solutions for them. However the list of proposals is no silver bullet that would fix the housing crunch; the recommendations primarily target the next administration with ideas such as a two-year development programme.

Supply and demand mismatch

One of the most intractable issues in Finland’s is the mismatch between supply and demand when it comes to housing stock. Growing urban centres in particular can provide fewer homes than people need but in areas suffering from negative migration, property owners find it difficult to sell their homes.

This situation complicates life for people looking to relocate for work, forcing them to remain in dying regions stuck with a home that they cannot sell, while growth centres suffering a worker shortage can’t recruit employees from far-flung areas.

The audit committee’s proposal to address this issue is to develop a two-year housing programme with long-term goals and strategies for achieving them.

Expensive Helsinki homes, depreciating properties in remote areas

Over the years spending on housing has expanded sharply and an estimated 15 percent of people in Finland don’t earn enough to cover their housing expenses. Some are forced to fill in the gaps with housing subsidies, which sucks more than two billion euros from government coffers each year.

There is a shortage of affordable housing, especially in the Helsinki region, which is aggravating the labour shortage in the area, particularly in the service sector where wages may be low.

State-subsidised rental housing accounted for about seven percent of the annual housing stock in the 2010s. The audit committee noted that in the decades between 1970 and 1990, the proportion of state-backed housing was around 21 percent.

MPs on the committee called for the adoption of a cooperative model for so-called social housing. Applicants would include people who are not able to qualify for market-price homes because of their incomes. The committee recommended that the government introduce this model before the next general election due in April 2019.

Mould-ridden homes an ongoing headache

Although the capital region has seen an uptick in the construction of new housing stock, MPs said that it is still not enough to significantly dent the current housing shortage. Moreover construction projects have been stymied by a lack of suitably-qualified labour, causing contractors to cut corners at the expense of quality. Down the road, this could result in moisture and mould problems.

The committee said that problems related to shoddy workmanship continue to occur despite efforts to address the issue in recent years. It suggested that government commission on a report on householders stranded in what it called a mould trap.

Suburban development a cause for concern

According to experts interviewed by the committee the period between the 1990s and the 2010s has seen uneven development in some suburban areas in terms of declining educational levels and increasing unemployment.

These districts are now home to rising numbers of elderly singles, as fewer families with children and young adults settle there. In addition some suburbs are becoming home to growing numbers of foreign-language groups among whom the unemployment rate is higher than that of the Finnish population, according to the report.

The committee called for heading off the problem of segregation with a planned mix of different kinds of housing and by improving immigrant integration. It also recommended a long-term suburban development programme that would extend across several administrations.

Overhaul for support systems

Every year the state spends a significant amount of money on producing new housing stock as well as paying subsidies directly to households. In 2017, the government paid out some 2.7 billion euros in housing support.

The same problems that affect the broader housing market trouble the state’s housing production programme. There are never enough units in the Helsinki region and at the same time the rest of the country is full of dilapidated empty state-supported rentals located in remote areas.

The number of abandoned state-backed rentals across Finland has doubled since the year 2000 and increased for six consecutive years. At the end of last year, the number of state-supported rentals in the country that stood empty for at least 60 days was 8,800.

Meanwhile housing benefits paid directly to households has skyrocketed in recent years and people are increasingly turning to income support to help pay the rent. The committee called for the next administration to completely overhaul of the entire subsidy system at the same time that the country’s benefits system is reformed.


          Mandy Moore Opens Up About the "Trauma" of Her Divorce and How This Is Us Saved Her      Cache   Translate Page      

Mandy Moore is writing her own narrative and no one here is going to stop her.

The This Is Us star opened up to Glamour about her career, love life and family and how she's come to terms with some of the choppier bits of her past. "I'm a woman now. I've been married and divorced. I've had ups and downs, professionally and personally," she told Glamour.

Now, Moore is at what many consider to be a high point in her career. She's already had hit pop songs and appeared in plenty of films and TV shows since her teenage days, including A Walk to Remember, Princess Diaries, Tangled and I'm Not Here. Getting to where she is today, however, involved some roadblocks along the way.

In 2015, Moore and her husband Ryan Adams  filed for divorce after nearly six years of marriage. Both of their reps at the time called their parting "respectful, amicable," but Moore is now talking about it in a more candid manner. "I didn't choose the right person," she told the magazine. 

Not long before her marriage to Adams, she was dealing with family upheavals of her own. Her mother left Moore's dad for another woman, and she found out accidentally via an email draft.  "I couldn't control what happened to my immediate family, but I could control starting my own," she explained. "Not the smartest decision." 

PCAs Finalist Mandy Moore's Road to This Is Us: See Her Best Roles!

The Rebecca Pearson actress revealed that she felt "spiritually and fundamentally stuck" in her relationship and doesn't "feel guilty" about her divorce. "I don't fault myself for it," she said.

The end of that marriage was a new beginning for Moore. "When people said, 'I'm sorry,' I was like, 'No. Sorry would have been had I stayed in a very unhealthy situation.' I didn't. I found my way out. And when I did, things opened back up again," she explained.

This Is Us hit the airwaves and viewers' emotions by storm not long after. The show has allowed Moore to not feel so pigeon-holed anymore after she felt like she was being typecast as "America's Sweetheart" and solely a rom-com star. She believes that reputation "prevented me from finding momentum, workwise, because people saw me in one light."

"This Is Us has allowed me to show people that I'm not perpetually stuck in the realm of teen romantic comedies," she said. "After years of not being able to find things that I felt challenged by, it's really cool to potentially be in a position to find material and help create it."

Now, her trajectory has skyrocketed. She's on the up and up. In 2015, she met her now-fiancé Taylor Goldsmith because of an Instagram she posted about his band, Dawes. He slid into her DMs, and the rest is history. They got engaged in 2017 after two years of dating, and Moore gushed to Glamour about how much of a support system Goldsmith was around the time of her divorce. "I was still dealing with the trauma of my divorce when we started dating," she explained. "Taylor was steadfast in his support."

She couldn't speak highly enough of how much she really loves him. "He makes me melt. I can imagine no better partner. He's going to be the most tremendous father," she said.

In the end, she's grateful for all that she has gone through in order to get her to the exact spot she's in today. She told Glamour, "I view the past as a stepping-stone to get me where I am today. I would gladly weather all of that a million times over if it brought me to Taylor again."

Don't only count on seeing Mandy Moore on your television screens on Tuesday nights. She could be heading to your music library soon, too. "I feel ready now," she said about making music again. 

She sings in her 2007 song "Most of Me": "I won't hold anything back / I won't hold anything in" and those words still ring true. "You give less of a s--t about how the world perceives you," she said. "Now it's more important to me to be self-satisfying."

The November issue of Glamour arrives on newsstands October 10.

- Captain America

This week's movie rental was Avengers: Infinity War ...

a 2018 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers .... [which] features an ensemble cast including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.

The movie is the culmination of what's been building through all of the Marvel movie storylines up to this point, and it includes characters beyond just the Avengers, like Doctor Strange and the Guardians of the Galaxy. The bad guy, an alien named Thanos, was introduced in the first Avengers film, and in this movie he wreaks havoc trying to acquire all the powerful infinity stones in order to use them to destroy half of all life in the universe.

Here's a trailer ...



After the last movie about the Avengers - Captain America: Civil War - the Avengers are in disarray, most of them on the lam from the law, so when they learn that Thanos is after the infinity stones, their response is splintered. Iron Man (Tony Stark) joins with Doctor Strange and Spider-Man to protect the stone Dr. Strange possesses. Here we see Doctor Strange, Tony Stark, and Bruce Banner (who's having trouble becoming the Hulk) confronting Thanos' minions who have come for Strange's infinity stone ...



Meanwhile, Captain America, the Black Widow, the Scarlet Witch, and the Vision travel to Wakanda, the home of the Black Panther, to guard the stone possessed by the Vision ...



And Thor, recently having watched Thanos kill his brother Loki, joins with Rocket of the Guardians of the Galaxy to try to destroy Thanos before he can collect all the stones. Here's a clip of Thor telling Rocket of all the personal losses he's endured ...



Though there are funny scenes, of course, the basic tenor of the film is grim, and though I don't mean to be a spoiler, the movie ended in a way I didn't expect - the Avengers were defeated.

I grew up reading Avengers comics and I love the Avengers films and the characters in them, especially Captain America. I definitely recommend the movie.

          Видео: запуск Falcon 9 и успешное приземление первой ступени в Калифорнии      Cache   Translate Page      

В ночь с 7 на 8 октября с базы ВВС США Ванденберг в Калифорнии был произведен успешный запуск ракеты Илона Маска с аргентинским спутником SAOCOM 1A на борту. Радиолокационный спутник был выведен на околоземную орбиту, а первая ступень ракеты-носителя благополучно приземлилась на космодроме. Во время запуска ракету окружил странный светящийся шар, так что без шуток про инопланетное вторжение не обошлось.

Красочное зрелище и подсветку ночного неба в виде светящегося шара можно было наблюдать везде, от Сан-Франциско до Лос-Анжелеса, и даже кое-где в Аризоне.

          Comment on SDR Primer Part 2: Exploring the world of SDRs for $200 or less by Andrew      Cache   Translate Page      
David, don't be scared by antennas; they may seem "rocket science stuff" at first, but they aren't (as long as you grab some basic concepts), but let me step back, let's start from some baseline; when it comes to setting up antennas, the first thing to evaluate is the "how much space" and then the "where and how"; in short, if you don't have access to a roof/loft/terrace/balcony, then you'd probably have to go for an indoor antenna or for some window hung one (there are several good ones) and in such a latter case, deciding for something "dangling" out of a window or for (say) a magnetic loop, depends from the kind of environment surrounding you. In general, having some space (be it a terrace or a backyard/garden), one may start with the classic "longwire" antenna, the antenna is just a piece of wire with some "random" (more later) lenght, a GOOD ground connection and a 1:9 balun; the latter can either be built or acquired for around 9$, for example, the NooElec balun http://www.nooelec.com/store/balun-one-nine.html may be a nice pick (just ensure to use some cable ties to avoid overloading the spring contacts); in such a case, start by checking the available space (remember while the longwire should POSSIBLY be installed as a straight line, nothing forbids you from using a zig-zag or wrapped or other configurations ;-D) at that point, select the lenght from the following (in feet) 29, 35.5, 41, 58, 71, 84, 107, 119, 148, 203, 347, 407, 423 ((for more infos, see http://www.hamuniverse.com/randomwireantennalengths.html) keeping in mind that, the longer the antenna, the better you'll be able to cover lower bands (160, 80, ...); having your cable cut to lenght, and some length of coax running from your SDR connector to the balun, place the cable as desired (or possible) keeping it as high as you can, then, with the balun in your hands, and the coax connector to the right, connect the antenna wire to the upper spring connector and connect to the other one a piece of wire going to a good ground (as good as you can, a waterpipe, a pole in the ground, whatever you have) just ensure to use some rope and cable ties so that the longwire ... wire and the ground one won't load the springer contacts (and will discharge the weight/pull on the rope) Alternatively, if you have access to an actic (under the roof) you may put together a multiband dipole as described here http://www.hamblog.co.uk/how-to-construct-a-multi-band-dipole-using-speaker-wire/ or a "slinky" antenna as described here https://www.nonstopsystems.com/radio/frank_radio_antenna.htm in both cases, you may put at good use the balun seen above (although, for the dipole, building the suggested balun would be a good idea) Other solutions may be buying a miniwhip antenna https://www.ebay.com/bhp/active-antenna or a TAK Tenna https://www.tak-tenna.com/ the first one is in use at the famous WebSdr station at UTWENTE, while the second has a number of good reviews and fits quite well small spaces, for example, you may place it outside a window or on a balcony; check these pics https://www.tak-tenna.com/S52CC%20balcony%20photo.jpg https://www.tak-tenna.com/40%20on%20tripod%20on%20deck.jpg Then, ok, if everything else fails (aka doesn't fit your available space), you may go for a number of different solutions, ranging from a loop on a window frame to the smaller loops suggested by Thomas or you may try posting infos about your "available space" (as much detailed as possible) and I or someone else, may help you Again, don't be scared by antennas, there's nothing to be scared of, and building and operating your one is usually a great satisfaction, especially since, you may then decide to fathom the "how it works" and optimize it to better fit your needs All the best and, again, a huge THANK YOU to Thomas for this very cool blog !

It seems to me that the most pressing issue in space is the lack of atmosphere in bars on the Moon. This can of course be remedied by sending up a few rockets full of Vodka.

If nothing else, this will please Russian cosmonauts, and will undoubtedly cause them to hug any aliens they encounter, telling them that they love them (only in Russian), thus forestalling the impending alien invasion. It may mean the occasional Soyuz gets pranged lifting off from the rocket park, but this is surely a small price to pay.
          PVE vs PVP – Was ist beliebter?      Cache   Translate Page      

Alle Spiele lassen sich in praktisch drei Kategorien einteilen – PVE, PVP sowie eine Mischung aus beiden. Wie bekannt sein dürfte, geht es bei PVE darum, gegen den Computer anzutreten, bei PVP wiederum spielt man gegen andere echte Spieler und Mischsspiele erlauben beides. So gibt es Fans in allen drei Sparten. Dabei stellt sich die Frage, warum manche Gamer das eine Spielkonzept gegenüber dem anderen favorisieren.  Quelle: rocdisjoint bei DeviantArt, (CC BY-ND 3.0)  Denkt man an die beiden Begriffe PVP und PVE fallen einem zwangsläufig die zahlreichen MMORPGs- oder Onlinespiele generell ein. Diese ermöglichen Spielern, sowohl gegen die Umwelt als auch gegen andere Spieler antreten zu können. Der besondere Reiz von Titeln wie World of Warcraft oder Guild Wars besteht darin, dass Spieler sich aussuchen können, ob sie sich generell lieber auf PVP oder PVE fokussieren. Somit werden Fans von beiden Spieltypen angesprochen. Dennoch müssen häufig Abstriche bei den Spielfeatures gemacht werden, wenn man nur eine Spielweise bevorzugt. Daher haben manche Onlinespiele wie zum Beispiel bei Duelz eine Balance aus PVP und PVE angestrebt, bei der sich Freunde von beiden Spielmodi wohlfühlen. Bei Eve Online ist das Konzept ähnlich, nur wesentlich unharmonischer. Jeder Spieler kann zu jedem Zeitpunkt von Mitspielern angegriffen werden, was die PVP-Komponente fest ins Spielkonzept integriert hat. Dennoch hat dies eine große Fangemeinde angezogen und EVE zu einem der größten Onlinespiele werden lassen.  Quelle: AhmadMurchadbei DeviantArt, (CC BY-ND 3.0)  Reine PVE-Titel findet man meist nur noch in der Offlinewelt. Es handelt sich um Singleplayerspiele, die ohne Multiplayer oder nur mit sehr beschränkten Multiplayeroptionen ausgestattet sind. Onlinekomponenten enthalten meist nur Statistikvergleiche mit anderen Spielern. Dies kann man sehr gut an Assassin’s Creed oder Mass Effect erkennen. Der Fokus dieser Spiele liegt auf einer Geschichte in einer teils mehr oder weniger offenen Spielewelt, in der Spieler ihre Helden weiterentwickeln. Gleiches gilt für das Fallout-Universum, nur mit dem Unterschied, dass man sich seinen eigenen Helden zuvor erstellen kann. Allerdings kann man auch bei PVE-Titeln den Wunsch nach mehr Onlinefunktionen erkennen. Im Fallout-Universum soll Fallout 76 der erste Titel mit Multiplayerfokus werden, ein Wunsch, der sich schon lange in der Fallout-Community gezeigt hatte, da viele Spieler das detailreiche postapokalyptische Universum mit Freunden zusammen erkunden möchten.  Quelle: Pexels Reine PVP-Titel gibt es in dem Sinne nicht, denn sie enthalten häufig die Möglichkeit, gegen den Computer trainieren zu können. Der klare Spielfokus aufs PVP ist aber deutlich erkennbar. Ein gutes Beispiel ist Rocket League, welches ein beliebter E-Sport-Titel wurde. Bei dem Spiel tritt man mit Freunden oder zufälligen Spielern im Team gegen andere Spieler an und kann mit Siegen sein persönliches Ranking erhöhen. Teamwork ist einer der entscheidenden Punkte des Spiels. Das Gleiche gilt für das Survival-Horror-Spiel Dead by Deadlight, bei dem eine Gruppe aus vier Spielern kooperieren muss, um einem Killer zu entkommen, hinter dem sich ebenfalls ein echter Spieler verbirgt. Reine PVP-Spiele begeistern durch ihren starken Fokus auf Kooperation und sind daher gut geeignet für kurze Runden. Singleplayerspiele begeistern Gamer weiterhin durch ihren Story-Fokus, aber die Krone geht sicherlich an die Mischspiele. Dies liegt daran, dass man die Möglichkeit hat, gegen den Computer zu kämpfen und damit Spielfortschritte zu erzielen, um sich dann gegen andere Spieler austesten zu können. Schlussendlich bleibt es aber natürlich der persönlichen Präferenz überlassen, welche Art Spiele man bevorzugt.

          Concept arts de Vingadores: Guerra Infinita podem dar pistas sobre a armadura do Homem de Ferro em Vingadores 4      Cache   Translate Page      
Tem pouca coisa ainda que sabemos sobre Vingadores 4, mas parece que estamos cada vez mais perto das primeiras notícias oficiais saírem por aí. E curiosamente, uma postagem recente do artista da Marvel Studios Daren Horley pode nos dar detalhes do que pode vir a ser a armadura do Homem de Ferro em Vingadores 4. Confira:



As imagens postadas por Horley remetem aqui a concept arts não usados de Vingadores: Guerra Infinita, onde vemos que a nova armadura do Homem de Ferro que se monta basicamente por nanotecnologia, tem ainda mais atribuições do que revelou no terceiro filme dos Vingadores.

Além das confecções de armas pelo antebraço, vejam que ela poderia formar diferente designs do capacete. E não só isso, pois uma das fotos detalha que a armadura poderia cobrir o corpo de tal forma que daria para ver até mesmo as curvas dos músculos do braços do Homem de Ferro. Há quem aponte que isso acontecerá em Vingadores 4 já que algumas imagens vazadas por aí, mostram em baixa resolução que veremos uma homenagem a clássica armadura dos anos 80 desenhadas por Bob Layton.



Vingadores 4 vem aí em 3 de Maio de 2019. O filme conta com a volta de Robert Downey Jr. (Homem de Ferro), Chris Evans (Capitão América), Scarlett Johansson (Viúva Negra), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Jeremy Renner (Gavião Arqueiro), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff), Paul Bethany (Visão), Chadwick Boseman (Pantera Negra), Don Cheadle (Máquina de Combate), Paul Rudd (Homem-Formiga), Chris Pratt (Peter Quill), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Bradley Cooper e Sean Gunn (Rocket Raccoon), Dave Bautista (Drax), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Vin Diesel (Groot), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Estranho), Tom Holland (Homem-Aranha),Josh Brolin (Thanos), Sebastian Stan (Soldado Invernal), Danai Gurira(Okoye), Benedict Wong(Wong), Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), dentre outros. A direção é de Anthony e Joe Russo, o roteiro é de Stephen McFeely e Christopher Markus.

          Final North Dakota Points for 2018      Cache   Translate Page      
North Dakota is the first of several states that I track points on that has completed its racing season for 2018 and following are the complete standings for the divisions followed. These points are tabulated in the same manner as the All Iowa Points using a 5-point scale on features only and, as I have the past two seasons, following the race at the dome in St. Louis I will combine all of the states together to present the "Best of the Midwest" for 2018. First though, let's take a look at North Dakota.

For the third straight year Dustin Strand tops the list of Late Model drivers posting seven feature wins in nineteen top five finishes. This placed him comfortably ahead of runner-up Canadian Mike Balcaen who also had nineteen top fives, but with two feature wins.

In the Modifieds Travis Peery is the 2018 champion edging out Jason Wolla by just four points. Peery picked up three feature wins in twenty top five finishes while Wolla, who obviously cut back on his schedule after being the 2017 IMCA National Champion, had eight wins and thirteen top fives. As a comparison, in winning the North Dakota Points last year, Wolla scored a total of 154 points. Peery was eighth in last year's standings with just 33.

After ranking third in last year's standings Kelly Henderson moves to the top in the Limited Modifieds for 2018. The Minot driver was a winner seven times and has twenty-seven to five finishes, seven more than last year's champion Lance Shill. The runner-up the past two seasons, Erik Laudenschlager finished third this year so the top three drivers essentially traded positions.

The state runner-up in 2017, Wade Nygaard moves to the top this season in the Sprint Car standings on the strength of twenty-two top five finishes and seven feature wins. The 2016 champ Mark Dobmeier was second with nine wins, two second's and one third making up his point total of 56.

Replies: 0 Last poster: Roffel37 at 10-10-2018 00:17 Topic is Open Beste allen, Na maanden rond te kijken en potentiële builds samen te stellen en stiekem hopend dat de gpu prijzen zouden zakken... Ben ik nu met de nieuw aangekondigde gpu's van nividia & de cpu's van intel terug in het dilemma: is die premium prijs het waard/ zal ik het zelfs merken op mijn 144hz 1080p scherm/... Het is dus beetje een Intel/Nvidia vs AMD dilemma & een best bang voor your buck situatie. Wat wil je doen met je nieuwe systeem? Het systeem dient voor dagdagelijks gebruik en gaming. De afgelopen jaren speelde ik het meeste League of Legends, Path of Exile, Rocket League, Diablo 3, Hearthstone, Monster Hunter World,.. Dit zijn niet de meest veeleisende games, maar met de nieuwe build wil ik wel dat deze zwaardere games vlotjes kan draaien. Wat mag het systeem gaan kosten? 1200-2000€, Er is niet echt een maximum prijs, als er een extra €200 insteken echt wel een meerwaarde biedt doe ik dit graag. Ik wil echter wel voorkomen dat ik 100den euros teveel betaal voor slechts enkele fps meer. Hoe goedkoper voor vergelijkbare performance & levensduur hoe beter dus. Zijn er componenten of randapparatuur die je al hebt en mee wil nemen naar je nieuwe systeem? Ik wil de volledige tower vernieuwen, schermen en andere randapparatuur ga ik behouden. Ik werk met een dual monitor setup, waarvan het hoofdscherm een ASUS VG248QE 24 inch 1080p 144 hz monitor is. Ik las dat deze monitor FreeSync heeft. Echter heb ik dit nog nooit gebruikt en zou ook niet weten wat dit exact helpt. Momenteel heb ik een nvidia gtx 960 maar nooit last gehad van tearing of dergelijke. Dus is het het waard om bv naar een AMD vega 64 te kijken? Ik zag laats een Sapphire Nitro+(die blijkbaar een van de betere brands is) voor €550+3 games passeren, Deze is zoals ik het lees ongeveer een gtx 1080. Ik hoor echter ook vaak dat Vega een fail was en nvidia pakken beter is, dus als iemand hier ervaring in heeft zou geapprecieerd worden. Wat denk je allemaal nodig te hebben? Ik was initieel aan het kijken naar een intel 8700k + gtx1080ti/rtx2080 als voornaamste componenten. Ik zit al maanden rond te kijken en te wachten, ik dacht met de release van de nieuwe intel chips & gpu's dit najaar, moeten die prijzen wel zakken!, Helaas is net het omgekeerde waar. Heb je nog bepaalde (merk)voorkeuren? Ik ben op zoek naar goede kwaliteit. Een build waar ik 5+ jaar op kan rekenen. Graag dus duurzame producten. Zijn de Ryzen processoren even duurzaam als de intel chips? Het doet niet uit dat iets 20% goedkoper is als het maar de helft zo lang meegaat Liever geen gpu's waarvan gekend is dat er slechte koeling of hoge temperatuur/lawaai is Heb je nog bepaalde eisen/wensen? Ik had gedacht aan een mid case, momenteel denk ik aan een Phanteks P400s, maar dit ligt nog niet vast. Een kleinere case die wat handiger te hanteren is en mee te nemen lijkt me ook nog interessant. Graag ook parts die lang mee gaan kunnen. Zo zijn ASUS/EVGA/MSI kaarten liever gewenst als psy/gigabyte/palit/... Onderaan ook een indicatief lijstje wat ik in gedachten had van onderdelen Ga je overklokken? Overklokken hoeft voor mij niet persé, maar als dit aan te raden is wil ik me daar zeker in verdiepen. Wat verwacht je van ons? Graag had ik advies gehad welke parts perfect zijn om de komende jaren op Hoge/Ultra settings, 144hz 1080p te gamen. Maw welke part zijn overkill en merk ik verschil amper of niet met goedkoper alternatief. Graag had ik ook eindelijk de knoop doorgehakt tussen Ryzen vs Intel & Nvidia vs amd vega. Hieronder de builds waar ik mee aan het spelen was: CPU; Intel i7 8700k/Intel i7 9700k vs Rizen 3700x/Rizen alternatief? Is Rizen 2600 even goed bv als je toch enkel gamed? Ik had ook de i7 9700k & i9 9900k overwogen aangezien deze respectievelijk 420 & 550€ stonden op tones gisteren wat ik nog net zou overwegen, maar ik zie dat deze prijzen vandaag met 100 euro zijn toegenomen. PSU: Corsair RM650x Moederbord: z370 Extreme4 voor intel / wat is een goed en betaalbaar ryzen moederbord die ook futureproef is als ik bv naar zen 2/3 zou willen upgraden in de toekomst? <200euro tenzij meerprijs meer dan waard waterkoeling? Kraken x62/Corsair H115i/ alternatieven? Of is waterkoeling enkel fancy en zijn fans meer als genoeg? Case: Phanteks p400s /nzxt H500i/...(voldoende goede airflow?) RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB, 3000Mhz of trident Z 3200Mhz (deze laatste is compatibel met AMD, eventueel betere ram voor amd in zelfde prijsklasse?) SSD: 1TB Crucial MX500 m.2 of Samsung EVO 860 m.2 GPU: gtx 1080ti/1080, RTX 2080/2070(msi gaming x & asus strix zijn hier blijkbaar de beste, nog andere die ietsje betaalbaarder zijn?), amd vega 64 sapphire Met de huidige prijzen zie ik me noodgedwongen om naar AMD te neigen voor de CPU, ondanks dat ik altijd al meer voor team blauw was in het verleden. voor gpu neig ik eerder naar een gforce tenzij de vega 64 echt wel dik in orde zou zijn en beter prijs/kwaliteitverhouding als de nvidia kaarten Tot slot nog de vraag of het de moeite loont om te wachten op ZEN 2 of de fameuze NAVI grafische kaarten waar amd eindelijk terug competief hoopt te worden. Eventueel een goedkopere ryzen 5 2600 kopen ipv ryzen 7 2700x, om dan met zen 2 of 3 up te graden. Is het de moeite te wachten tot bv black friday of andere mogelijke pricedrops in het verschiet waar ik best op wacht voor bepaalde parts? Dit is een hele boterham, alvast bedankt voor de hulp

           Comment on The Rover Boys in the Air by Mark Pontin       Cache   Translate Page      
"The fact that Reagan, Heinlein, and Asimov devoured many of the same books only tells me that this was what a lot of kids were reading in the twenties and thirties—although perhaps only the exceptionally imaginative would try to live their lives as an extension of those stories... " Yet the exceptionally imaginative shaped the culture. " ...if we’re more inclined to emphasize the science fiction side ... it’s because this is the only genre that dares to make such grandiose claims for itself....'' There's more to it than that. I interviewed Gene Kranz, NASA Flight Director during the Gemini and Apollo programs, around 2000. Though I didn't elicit it, at one point Kranz became quite voluble about the influences that shaped him during his youth, stressing not only the importance of the SF pulps to his world-view but also that of the 'Air Ace'-type pulps and popular aviation magazines. (As forex - http://www.vintagepulps.com/store/c61/G-8_and_his_Battle_Aces.html) In other words, SF was part of a popular cultural continuum in which the Wright Brothers' first powered flights were only a couple of decades in the past. By the mid-1940s, the German V2 rockets and the atomic bomb -- whose real-world physics were initially conceived of by Leo Szilard in 1933, following his reading in 1932 of H.G. Wells's fictional account of atomic bombs in THE WORLD SET FREE (1914) -- were accomplished facts. https://library.ucsd.edu/dc/object/bb58377715/_1.pdf By the 1950s, you get figures like John von Neumann talking about 'this Buck Rogers universe we are entering' (see Richard Rhodes's DARK SUN) and grim realists like USAF SAC commander General Curtis LeMay demanding a nuclear-powered bomber that would stay airborne for 6-9 months at a time so he could maintain parity with the US Navy and Admiral Hyman Rickover's nuclear submarines. As matters turned out, the 1950s were arguably the most Faustian decade in history and things would tail off after Apollo. But you can see why, based on the exponential curve of development from the Wright Bros to Sputnik in a half-century, a lot of intelligent people expected Kubrick and Clarke's 2001, not bin Laden's.

          THE TRADE DEFICIT ISN´T THE BOOGEYMAN / JOHN MAULDIN´S WEEKLY NEWSLETTER      Cache   Translate Page      

The Trade Deficit Isn’t the Boogeyman

By John Mauldin

TFTF Image


I have to confess something: I run a huge trade deficit. It’s not with China or Mexico, but with Amazon. I buy all sorts of goods from them and Jeff Bezos has yet to spend a penny with me. It’s just not fair.

Sound ridiculous? That’s exactly what it is. Totally absurd. I like Amazon. I’m happy with the items the company ships to me and (I presume) Amazon is happy to receive my money. We both win.

The same kind of relationship exists between the US and China, although with a few twists we’ll discuss below. That’s not to say China is a trade policy choirboy, but the trade deficit is not the key problem. Trying to “fix” it won’t accomplish what we want and could have serious side effects.

Trade deficits or surpluses aren’t bad. Nor are they good. They are a natural characteristic of post-barter economies that have achieved division of labor… a sign of success, in other words. For certain countries, there are times when trade deficits simply don’t make a difference. And then there are times when they can be devastating. It all depends on the current account surplus, a concept we will deal with below, and/or whether the country’s currency has reserve status. It’s not hard to understand, so let’s dive in.


Nothing to Fear

President Trump seems to think the country with a trade deficit automatically “loses” to the one with a surplus. I suspect that comes from how he ran his businesses and his understanding of debt, but the two don’t equate, and until he understands that we are going to be talking about silly concepts like trade wars and tariffs. I wish his advisors would educate him on this.

One thing readers seem to appreciate in my writings is that I try to make complex information simple. Today, I will try to make an already-simple thing even simpler.

First, simply using the word “deficit” in conjunction with trade sounds bad to the vast majority of people. We all know that a deficit in our personal finances, meaning we spend more than we make, is bad. And so we equate that kind of deficit with the concept of a trade deficit. It makes a great political theme and wonderful demagoguery. Trade deficits and populism have gone together for centuries.

What Is a Trade Deficit?

Let’s pause here and define our terms. A trade deficit occurs when Nation X purchases more goods and services (by value) from Nation Y than Y purchases from X. In this example, X has a trade deficit with Y and Y has an identical trade surplus with X.

And that works for every other country that we run a trade deficit with or trade surplus with. We buy their goods, they take our dollars.

That’s not bad. In fact, it’s arguably better for the US side because China (and everyone else) accepts our currency as payment, instead of demanding we obtain renminbi to pay the bill. The US can do that because we have the world’s reserve currency. It is what French finance minister (and later president) Valéry Giscard d'Estaing disparagingly called an “exorbitant privilege” in the 1960s when France demanded gold for its dollars. That led Nixon to close the gold window and ended the Bretton Woods system. It seemed dramatic but the dollar was still the world’s reserve currency. Everyone still wanted it.

D’Estaing and his boss de Gaulle were right: Being the world’s reserve currency IS an exorbitant privilege. One can argue of late that Japan has had similar privileges. Europe and the eurozone and even to some extent the UK have it, too, not to the extent of the US but for basically the same reasons. They also have offsetting current account surpluses, which means money is flowing back into their countries.

This goes back to David Ricardo’s “comparative advantage” doctrine he espoused in 1817. Like people, nations have both talent and weaknesses. Everyone is better off if we all do the things we do best. If China can produce something at a lower cost than we can produce it ourselves, then both countries win if we let them do it.

Admittedly, problems emerge when relative advantages change. Maybe your country is really good at producing a certain product that a new imported technology renders obsolete. That’s not good for the workers whose jobs disappear, even though consumers now have access to a better product at a lower price. But, that’s not a reason for tariffs or protective measures. It simply means the importing country needs to get those workers retrained and help them transition to different work.

Trading Math


Now we will review some simple mathematics. Almost every economist in the world accepts this basic Gross Domestic Product equation: Y = C + I + G + (X – M). This is where Y is GDP, C stands for consumption, I stands for investments, G stands for government expenditures and (X – M) stands for exports minus imports. This is called an accounting identity. In the same way that 2+2 = 4, an accounting identity is always and everywhere true.

If your goal is to reduce or eliminate the US trade deficit with China (or anyone else), are tariffs a good tool to do it? No, because tariffs don’t affect the underlying causes. Trade deficits exist not because the US imports too much, but because Americans consume too much and save too little.

Now, if you accept that the above equation is correct, with some rearranging of the symbols you can come to the equation in a different form. It is still an accounting identity, as Steve Hanke explains. (You may have to read this two or three times.)

In national income accounting, the following identity can be derived. It is the key to understanding the trade deficit.

(Imports - Exports) ≡ (Investment - Savings) + (Government Spending - Taxes)

Given this identity, which must hold, the trade deficit is equal to the excess of private sector investment minus savings, plus government spending minus tax revenue. So, the counterpart of the trade deficit is the sum of the private sector deficit and the government deficit (federal + state and local). The U.S. trade deficit, therefore, is just the mirror image of what is happening in the U.S. domestic economy. If expenditures in the U.S. exceed the incomes produced, which they do, the excess expenditures will be met by an excess of imports over exports (read: a trade deficit).

This is simply math. Since Americans collectively consume more than they produce or invest, the difference must come from somewhere besides thin air. (Borrowing the money doesn’t help because the borrowed money itself has to come from savings.) The only way to solve the equation is to import the excess consumption, i.e. run a trade deficit.

Furthermore, the trade deficit needs an equal and offsetting current account surplus. You as an individual have to get your money that you spent from somewhere. It works the same for countries. That means foreigners have to buy things in the US, like real estate or stocks, or US companies invest their money outside of the US and bring the profits back into the US. This makes the trade deficit equal the current account surplus.

If you don’t like this outcome, you can change it by some combination of reduced consumption and higher savings. Recessions have that effect, so they are good ways to reduce the trade deficit. The inverse correlation between unemployment and trade deficits is really pretty high. But I don’t think anybody would want a recession just to get rid of the trade deficit. (Please note sarcasm.)

Or, there are ways government could encourage lower consumption and higher savings, but they would mean a dramatic lifestyle change for many, if not most Americans. We would have to become more like Japan, for instance, where people tend to save more of their earnings and live more frugally.

Since, as we know, millions of Americans have little excess income to save and already lead pretty frugal lives, it’s hard to see any such change happening, at least anytime soon. So math says we will run a trade deficit with somebody. It doesn’t necessarily have to be China, but our economy is not suited to be a net exporter. We can buy our T-shirts from Vietnam or Pakistan instead of China, but it is still a trade deficit.

Why can’t we make T-shirts in the US? Because they will cost more, which means consumers will buy fewer, which means a smaller economy with fewer jobs. I know it is counterintuitive but that is just the reality of a world that Ricardo described.

But running a trade deficit, when you can get away with it, also has advantages. It’s the reason the US dollar is the world’s reserve currency. We ship enormous quantities of greenbacks overseas to pay for all the stuff we import. Our trade partners have to accept them (as opposed to some other currency) because the US is such a large customer. We carry the big stick.

Better yet, all those dollars eventually come back home because they are of limited use to the foreigners upon which we force them. Chinese investors use them to buy our Treasury bonds or other purchases. The money flows to other countries and companies and eventually back to the US. Their added demand lets our Treasury borrow at lower rates than it otherwise could. In effect, the trade deficit subsidizes our government debt (which is too high but that’s another subject).

So we see trade deficits aren’t necessarily bad, but that’s not all. Even if we wanted to get rid of the trade deficit, it’s not clear we could—at least without creating some serious side effects. Martin Wolf said it well in the Financial Times last week.

Serious economists, back to Adam Smith, would insist that seeking a surplus with every trading partner is not “winning.” It is absurd. This is not even intelligent mercantilism, which would focus on the overall balance. Yet, particularly with free capital flows, overall balance is a foolish goal and one that trade policy cannot achieve. It is incredible that such primitive ideas rule the most sophisticated country on earth.

Martin’s point is well taken. Whether a country’s balance of trade is helpful depends highly on the circumstances. They aren’t automatically good or bad. The US trade deficit is helpful, as I’ve described, but in Greece a few years ago it was disastrous. The internal trade deficit southern eurozone countries ran with Germany (and other highly productive European countries) let them run up massive government, personal, and corporate debt, which they couldn’t pay. Greece was just the first and Italy is lining up to be the next.

In a normal world, when Greece used the drachma, the currency valuation would have fallen and made Greek citizens demand fewer imports. What actually happened was all the debt became due, forcing massive austerity in a kind of shadow devaluation. It was simply brutal.

Germany’s corresponding trade surplus with other EU countries is not necessarily great, either. Notice that in the chart below, Germany is the world’s third-largest exporter. It could not do with a strong currency like the Swiss franc. It works only because it is in the eurozone with weaker economies. A Volkswagen or Mercedes-Benz valued in deutsche marks that cost 50% more wouldn’t compete very well on a global scale. Germany will learn that the hard way before this is all over.



Creating Crisis

One oddity of all this is that the same people who want to reduce the trade deficit often worry about the dollar losing its reserve status. That may well happen anyway in some far-off distant future, but making the trade deficit smaller will only accelerate it.

The simple matter is that by agreeing to be the world’s reserve currency, and by essentially making the Federal Reserve the world’s central bank, we have agreed to supply dollars to the rest of the world so that they can trade with them. The US has done a remarkable job of running trade deficits and supplying those dollars. It is what my friend Paul McCulley calls being “responsibly irresponsible.” If we didn’t provide those dollars, the world would find another currency to trade in, and the US would lose the exorbitant privilege and its benefits.

We already see the early stages of this process. Between the relatively small tariffs that are already in effect and fear of more to come, the US dollar has been tearing higher against other currencies. (The Fed’s tightening policy has something to do with it, too.) This is just supply and demand. The supply of dollars outside the US is shrinking, making each one more valuable.

The consequences aren’t good for the US. For one, a stronger dollar makes US exports more expensive and encourages foreigners to seek alternatives to American goods. That’s the case even without the retaliatory tariffs foreign governments are placing on many US exports. Worse, the stronger dollar penalizes every US exporter, not just those unlucky enough to get hit by tariffs.

The other consequence is even scarier. Foreign governments and corporations, particularly those in emerging market countries, owe trillions in dollar-denominated debt. The rising dollar is making it more expensive to repay those debts. Governments and central banks are taking heroic measures to help but can only do so much. Eventually, some will default. Then we will have an old-fashioned currency crisis in a world far more interconnected and leveraged than it was in 1998.

Exactly how that will unfold, or when, is unclear. But there is the real possibility that it can happen. The genie is out of the bottle and swirling around, deciding where to strike. We’re going to get what we wished for and we are not going to like it.

The endgame, as I’ve written, will be The Great Reset where the debt of governments all over the world, plus all their unfunded government liabilities and promised pensions and healthcare, is going to be “resolved,” and unfortunately it will happen in the middle of a crisis.
 

Last week’s deal to revise and rename NAFTA, while positive, is being wrongly spun as reduced trade tension. I don’t see it that way at all. The new agreement still needs legislative approval in all three countries which may not be forthcoming. Opposition forces are already springing into action, now that they have an actual text to attack.

But the bigger problem is that this clears the way for Trump to concentrate fire on China. If you recall, my Camp Kotok sources said the NAFTA revisions, once complete, would let Trump pivot to China and try to force Beijing into a deal before the midterm elections. That appears to be what is happening.

Gavekal’s Arthur Kroeber pointed out in a bulletin this week “the forces pawing the ground for a fight with China are far stronger, and the reins on them far weaker, than was the case in the NAFTA and trans-Atlantic scuffles.” He also points out that US businesses with China exposure are caught in the middle and not trying to fight the White House on this. Kroeber also highlighted this Axios report that the Trump administration is planning a major broadside against China in the next few weeks. That means the relief markets are presently feeling may not last long.

Speaking of Gavekal, I have to say their research has been one of my best resources for years for staying on top of all this. No one knows Asia like the Gavekal team. Each morning I get an e-mail or two or three with all their firm’s latest research on the world economy, China, currencies, central banks, interest rates, and more. It is astonishingly useful. I wish I could share it all with you, but it’s a very expensive service intended for institutions and family offices.

However, I do share some of Gavekal’s best analysis with Over My Shoulder members. Lately, they’ve sent so much great info I asked Louis if we could hold a special “Gavekal Week” and feature their material every day. He graciously agreed and we are doing it next week, Oct. 8-12.

For instance, on Monday Over My Shoulder members will get the Gavekal Dragonomics China Inc. Annual Report 2018. This amazing chartbook outlines key trends in China’s corporate sector. It digs into differences between state-owned enterprises and private listed companies, drilling down to the sector level to show different impacts of the trade war and other policies. It’s invaluable if you want to understand what is really happening in China.
 
Toronto and Frankfurt

Sometime in the next few weeks I have to go to Toronto for a day, where I hope to also meet former BIS chief economist Bill White and a few other friends for dinner. Then in early November I will go to Frankfurt for a conference. Shane and I also intend to get to Puerto Rico sometime over the next month or so. And there was my 69th birthday this last week.

A little personal humor from my life. I got an email from AT&T saying they were going to cancel my account. I had no idea which account. Since I don’t generally handle these things, I sent it on to the powers that be (Shane) and she determined it was my internet connection, which we just installed recently. There was some problem with the automatic billing.

We called AT&T and they wanted to know our password. I didn’t know it. So they gave me a clue. I swear to God, they asked who was my favorite childhood hero. I started guessing. Davy Crockett? The Lone Ranger? Roy Rogers? Tom Swift? I went through a long list and was told “no” to each one. In our catch-22 situation, we could not go online without knowing that particular password to change our other password. Shane finally guessed her numeric password and that was a winner.

My childhood hero? My mother’s maiden name, my best friend growing up, my favorite pet, and a host of the other usual questions would all be on the tip of my tongue, but not that one. Who makes this stuff up? My assistant Tammi, after she could get in the account, checked every other password question trying to figure out where they came up with that. We still have no clue.

And with that, I will hit the send button, hoping that the AT&T bureaucrats aren’t from the same mold as those running the international credit system. That would make me tremble. Have a great week!

"Twitter can get you into trouble," Yusaku Maezawa, chief executive of Zozo Inc., said Tuesday at the Foreign Correspondents' Club in Tokyo. "And that can be said of Elon Musk, too."

Musk's tweet in August that declared he had secured financing for a Tesla buyout got him in trouble with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Under a settlement, Tesla and Musk each must pay a $20 million penalty. Musk also stepped down as Tesla's chairman.

Maezawa, 42, who is also quite active on social media, intends to be a passenger on Musk's Space X, the first-ever private commercial space trip, scheduled for blastoff in 2023, to orbit the moon, in what Maezawa has dubbed his "#dearMoon Project."

Maezawa said he got a good feel for Musk's character by visiting Tesla, and seeing the relationship Musk had developed with his employees.

"They believe in Elon Musk," he said. "That kind of company is marvelous. I felt that as another entrepreneur."

Although Maezawa said nothing was decided yet on who was going with him on the space travel, he said he wanted to take visual artists, fashion designers and musicians from a variety of backgrounds, including the actress he was dating, Ayame Goriki, "if she proves to be a good match for the mission."

Maezawa said his company has a twitter policy, and experts go over his tweets in advance. Sometimes he gets emotional on social media, but he is careful not to say anything that might hurt his company, he said.

Recently, he took to his twitter and Instagram accounts to lash out at online hecklers, who had ridiculed his halting rendition of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" on an expensive Stradivarius violin he had just purchased.

Maezawa is known for lavish purchases, including artworks by Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol. But he is equally known for sharing them with the public.

He shrugged off the possible dangers of space, just as he brushed off the risks of tweets and associations with Musk.

"There is no end if you start thinking about that," he said of the risks.

Maezawa said he has not yet started training for the mission, but he has been getting regular medical checkups and is brushing up on his English.

In a nation where people tend to be focused on blending in and getting along, Maezawa has stood out. Forbes magazine estimates his wealth at $2.9 billion.

Maezawa ran an import CD business and played in a rock band before he embarked on his online fashion business with his shopping site Zozotown.

Recently, he has begun making clothes, such as a wearable technology called Zozosuit. The suit, splattered with hundreds of dots, takes body measurements with a software application, ensuring a good fit.

Maezawa said nicely fitting clothes bring smiles and the moon trip's purpose also is to add to happiness.

The world remembers the first words of the 1969 Apollo astronaut Neil Armstrong, "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind," he said.

Maezawa has a message of his own that he says will be more casual, akin to the lyrics he loved playing in rock bands growing up.

All I want to say is this: Wouldn't the world be a better place if there is peace?" said Maezawa.

          HPR2658: Questions on podcast production      Cache   Translate Page      

HPR Chat with Al

Al asks Dave a number of questions about podcast audio recording and post-production.

Al is thinking of doing National Podcast Post Month in November

National Podcast Post Month (or NaPodPoMo) is a challenge in a similar vein to National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo) in which participants are challenged to produce and publish a piece of audio as a podcast, every day for the month of November.

Bad podcast audio

Audio quality is as important as the content that's being presented. Bad audio is going to be what causes new podcasters the most damage in subscriber numbers. An example of good audio is the true crime podcast, One Eye Open, which Dave started listening to a couple of weeks ago. He also picked up a couple of other true crime podcasts as a result of listening to One Eye Open where the audio quality is so bad, that they can't be heard!

Loudness is a measurement of how loud something is perceived to be. Levelling is a process of ensuring that individual tracks in a podcasts are an an equivalent level, but also the podcast overall is at an equivalent level to other podcasts that have been levelled the same way.

Our setups

Al and Dave have a very similar microphone setup.

  • Samson Q2U - XLR and USB capable microphone
  • Pop filters and wind screens
  • Boom arm
  • Shock mount

What is a compressor

The non-technical definition is that it brings up the quiet bits and brings down the louder bits so that your voice has less of a variance if you shout or whisper.

Different microphone types

  • Cardioid - focuses on sounds coming from in front of the mic
  • Omnidirectional - can theoretically pick up sound from all directions
  • Dynamic - well suited for vocal use
  • Condenser - overall better quality sound than dynamic, but more susceptible to background noise, so requires a really quiet studio environment

Your level

You can measure your own level in Audacity - make sure you stay in the green! If you stray into yellow or even red, either lower your level or move slightly away from the mic.

Other people's levels

Concentrate on your own, get others to manage theirs. If you're recording multiple tracks, it can be managed in post-production, but once it's been merged into a single track it's virtually impossible.

File formats

Record in a lossless format, and do your edits and post-production in a lossless format. Only transcode to a lossy format once you're ready to publish your final file.

Monitoring

If you're recording yourself, and you don't want to hear yourself through headphones, take the headphones off.

If you're recording with someone else who is not in the same room, you are better off hearing yourself through your headphones at the same level as the person you're talking to.

Post-production

  • Use Audacity to:
    • align the tracks so that everyone is in the right place
    • convert coughs, sneezes, burps, keyboard sounds, mouse clicks, etc to silence
  • Use Auphonic to:
    • level the individual tracks so that everyone sounds as "loud" as anyone else
    • merge the individual tracks into a single output file (a Multitrack production)
  • Dave also gives a specific use case for adding music into the final mix.

NaPodPoMo revisited

This will be Al's first attempt at NaPodPoMo, but not for Dave. Dave wants to make sure that he plans for this year, so he doesn't run out of material on day 7!!

Dave will interview another NaPodPoMo participant at least once a week during November. Looks like Al will be one of them!

Dave's final thought

Podcasting isn't rocket science. You don't need lots of expensive equipment to produce a podcast. You just need something to record into (e.g. a mobile phone or portable recorder) and somewhere to host it. You can host on your own website or on one of a number of free services, like Anchor, AudioBoom, or indeed Hacker Public Radio!

The obligatory podcast plug

Errata

  • Dave originally said that the pickup pattern that picks up 360 degrees was "unidirectional" - it should have been "omnidirectional" and has been fixed in the edit, but it sounds like it was added in afterwards... which, of course, it was!!

          In-Vitro Fertilization Market to Reach a Value of US $725.9 Mn by the End of 2022      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/09/2018 -- The global In-Vitro Fertilization Market is considered as a highly fragmented market and is projected to remain in the similar scenario in the next few years, states a new research study published by Transparency Market Research.

The global market for in-vitro fertilization has been classified on the basis of geography into the Middle East and Africa, Latin America, North America, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Among these, Asia Pacific is projected to witness a high growth and account for a large share of the overall market in the next few years. As per the research study, the in-vitro fertilization market for Asia Pacific is likely to register a 6.80% CAGR between 2017 and 2022. The rising number of government initiatives and the increasing medical tourism are some of the major factors that are projected to encourage the growth of the market in the next few years. Furthermore, North America is likely to witness a significant growth in the coming years, owing to the rising advancements in the IVF technologies.

The global market for in-vitro fertilization has been classified on the basis of product type into reagents and equipment. Among these, the reagents segment is expected to hold a large share of the global market throughout the forecast period. The rising developments and innovations in this field is considered as one of the key factors estimated to accelerate the growth of this segment in the next few years. The equipment segment, on the other, is projected to witness a healthy growth throughout the forecast period.

A significant rise in the median age of the first-time motherhood and the reducing fertility rates are considered as the key factors that are projected to encourage the growth of the global in-vitro fertilization market in the next few years. In addition to this, the rise in the male infertility and the rise in the consumption of cigarettes and alcohol are estimated to enhance the growth of the market in the coming few years.

On the flip side, the rising cost and the low success rate of the IVF treatment and the increasing health concerns are some of the factors that are predicted to restrict the growth of the in-vitro fertilization market in the next few years. Nonetheless, the rising consumer awareness regarding infertility and the easy availability of several treatment options are estimated to offer potential growth opportunities for the market players in the next few years.

          Trump: Next Summit With N. Korea's Kim to Be After Nov. US Elections      Cache   Translate Page      
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday his second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would be held after U.S. congressional elections on Nov. 6. Speaking to reporters as he flew to Iowa for a political rally, Trump said: "It'll be after the midterms. I just can't leave now." Earlier on Tuesday, Trump told reporters that plans were being made for his second summit with Kim and that he thought "incredible" progress had been made in U.S. talks with the long-isolated North Asian country. He said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had very good talks with Kim over the weekend and that three or four locations were being considered. Pompeo echoed Trump's comments when he spoke briefly to reporters during a Tuesday afternoon visit to the White House. "While there's still a long way to go and much work to do, we can now see a path where we will achieve (our) ultimate goal, which is the full and final verified denuclearization of North Korea," he said. Trump and Kim held a historic first summit in Singapore on June 12 at which Kim pledged to work toward denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. His actions have fallen short, however, of Washington's demands for a complete inventory of its weapons and facilities and irreversible steps to give up its nuclear arsenal, which could threaten the United States. 'No Rockets Flying' Still, Trump was upbeat on progress so far. "You got no rockets flying, you have no missiles flying, you have no nuclear testing," Trump said in the Oval  Office. "We've made incredible progress - beyond incredible. "But I have agreed to meet," he said. "We have a very good relationship with Chairman Kim. I like him, he likes me, the relationship is good." Pompeo said on Monday the two sides were "pretty close" to agreeing on details for a second summit. He added that Kim had said he was ready to allow international inspectors into North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear testing site and the Sohae missile engine test facility as soon as the United States and North Korea agreed on logistics. But experts questioned what Pompeo achieved on Sunday on his fourth visit to Pyongyang this year. They said the North Korean leader appeared simply to be repackaging and dragging out past pledges. Trump noted that the United States had not lifted the "very big sanctions" it has imposed on Pyongyang. "I'd love to remove them, but we have to get something for doing it," Trump said. North Korea is very interested in reaching some sort of agreement on denuclearization so that it can grow economically with the benefit of the foreign investment closed to it now, Trump said. The U.N. World Food Program said on Tuesday that the supply of food remained precarious in North Korea, where one in five children is stunted by malnutrition. More than 10 million North Koreans, nearly 40 percent of the population, are undernourished and need humanitarian aid, it said. "I will tell you they're calling, wanting to go there and wanting to invest," Trump said. "At some point, when Chairman Kim makes that decision, I think he's going to unleash something that's going to be spectacular, really spectacular. And I think he knows it and I think that's one of the reasons that we're having very successful conversations."

          Rocketman: Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John, but Is He Actually Singing?      Cache   Translate Page      

We've been anxiously awaiting Taron Egerton's foray into musical film as Elton John in Rocketman, and the first question that jumped out when we watched the first trailer is, of course, is Egerton actually singing?

In short, the answer is yes! Egerton does his own singing in Rocketman. He spent a long time recording John's music and trying to get it all right, according to The Hollywood Reporter. John's husband, David Furnish, even told the publication that John told Egerton that whatever he does, he shouldn't try to copy him. "Don't think you have to sing it exactly the way that I sang it. Don't think you have to perform it the way I performed it," Furnish said of John's advice to Egerton.

Egerton also told Collider back in May that he had every intention of always singing on set while filming the movie, and we are hoping he stuck with that and we'll find more out about it at some point. But for the actual movie, full of glitz, glam, and the Rocket Man, we'll have to wait until May 2019 for the release. It's then that we'll finally see Egerton as John, in this film Egerton calls a fantasy musical of John's life as an artistic prodigy.

m d mill, You wrote: "<i>No, I just think that this is even less likely. Your logic is faulty. Shipping raw Titanium to earth from the moon or elsewhere, once it is mined and purified is the relatively easy part, and makes the most economic sense.</i>" First you tell me that you are not thinking that raw material will be brought back to Earth, then you suggest that is your expectation. Something is faulty, but it is not the logic. A company called Made In Space is demonstrating that manufacturing in space may not be as difficult as many people assume. "<i>just show me.</i>" Was I unclear in my answer to your original request? Later you deviated from this request, so I replied to those deviations (as I am about to do in the next paragraph). NASA itself is not the joke. It has talented, knowledgeable, and skilled workers. Its management may be motivated more by politics than science or exploration, and it is <i>most definitely </i>not well used by Congress. It was Congress that directed NASA to make SLS without giving a mission for it to accomplish, and Congress even directed some of SLS's design to NASA, as though Congress is the rocket scientist rather than NASA's workers, resulting in an expensive rocket in search of a purpose (hence the proposed (F)LOP-Gateway). These problems do not make NASA a joke, they make some of NASA's most publicized projects jokes. JPL is fantastic, and -- although I did not like working with its personnel -- Goddard produces excellent science at a fairly reasonable cost. "<i>On reflection my, original post was reasonable and correct.</i>" Apparently, in your mind, if you can't "<i>see how extra earth missions are going to see a profit</i>" then you project your lack of imagination onto everyone else, too, and there is no convincing you otherwise. Meanwhile, I am going to continue celebrating the other seven billion people, their imaginations, and their ability to make their own dreams come true, even when -- like SpaceX's reusable first stage -- they <i>do </i>have to accomplish the "impossible" in an economical manner.

Well, I'm from Sevilla and have been in Estepa buying the "mantecados" and "polvorones" (traditional Christmas cakes we eat in Spain).

I was in Terrassa myself in 2000, visiting my friend Carme and the Salon del Comic.

But if you want to meet, I live in Woking, Surrey (U.K.).

If you plan to visit Sevilla, let me know and I can give you a list of places to visit and where to eat.


I played a Subbuteo tournament in Estepa. They have one of the largest clubs in the world, I'd say. Great experience, although I was roundly thrashed.

I spent a week in Sevilla three years ago. Absolutely loved it. Stayed in the Jewish Quarter and soaked it all in. I really like Andalusian culture, from flamenco to bull fighting, much to my wife's disgust (both flamenco and the bull fighting). Loved the Alcazar especially.

Also enjoyed the town of Carmona, not so much during the day but at night. Lovely whitewashed buildings.

Bit of difference between Woking and Sevilla. How do you cope with the weather?

I don't like cities much but there are 3 that I love and sevilla might be top of the list.


Agreed. It's my in top five in Europe. My wife is Spanish so we travel to Europe every three-four years. What's your other favourites? Mine are Stockholm, Prague and Berlin. Also love Dubrovnik, if you can call it a city. But like you, I do like getting out the city when I can.

Luis Scola regresó al Toyota Center, en donde tuvo sus mejores noches NBA con la número 4 de Houston. Anoche, con la camiseta del equipo chino Shanghai Sharks no defraudó al publico que lo recuerda bien: terminó en doble figura, 18 puntos (7-12 dobles, 1-1 triples y 1-1 libres) y 12 rebotes, además de tres asistencias, en 40 minutos. El goleador fue otro ex NBA, Jimmer Fredette, con 41.

A Luifa hasta le hicieron un homenaje en el entretiempo a través de un video muy emotivo.

Shanghai perdió 128-86, en un partido que se resolvió temprano ante la termenda diferencia de jerarquía. En el local brillaron James Harden (37 puntos y 9 asistencias) y PJ Tucker (22 tantos).

En el local, 3-1 en la pretemporada, no jugaron Carmelo Anthony, Clint Capela, Eric Gordon, Nené y Michael Carter-Williams.

          SpaceX首位月球旅行者:我仍对马斯克深信不疑      Cache   Translate Page      

【腾讯科技编者按】据国外媒体报道称,上月早些时候SpaceX公布了自己的第一个月球旅行客户,那就是日本企业家、亿万富翁前泽友作(Yusaku Maezawa),这次任务也将是人类自1972年最后一次阿波罗任务后,时隔46年首次重返月球。

前泽友作

前泽友作

日前,前泽友作在东京举办的“外国记者俱乐部”(Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan)上接受了媒体采访,并透露了有关这一月球之旅更多细节内容。

对于特斯拉和伊隆-马斯克(Elon Musk)本人最近遇到的麻烦,这名日本亿万富翁在今天上午的新闻发布会上表示“尽管最近遇到了一些麻烦,但我仍然尊重并信任作为一名企业家的伊隆-马斯克”。

现年43 岁的前泽友作对记者表示,他对马斯克和特斯拉、SpaceX员工之间的关系印象深刻,但人们还是需要对自己在推特上的言论倍加小心。

今年8月,马斯克在推特上贸然宣布,自己“计划以每股420美元的价格私有化特斯拉,且融资资金已经到位”,这一言论也让他在SEC遇到了巨大麻烦。根据后来双方达成的和解协议,特斯拉和马斯克需要各自支付2000万美元的罚款,马斯克还必须辞去特斯拉董事长一职至少三年时间。

前泽友作表示,自己的公司对推特有严格规定,还会有专人提前检查自己即将发布的推文。有时候,自己也会在社交媒体上表现的有些情绪化,但自己会十分小心不说任何可能伤害到公司的言论。

最近,他在自己的推特和Instagram账户上猛烈抨击网络上的“键盘侠”们,这些人嘲笑他用刚买的昂贵斯特拉迪瓦里小提琴上断断续续地演奏《Twinkle Twinkle Little Star》。

上月早些时候,马斯克宣布前泽友作将成SpaceX送上太空旅行的第一人。如果没有意外,他将在2023年乘坐“大型猎鹰火箭”(Big Falcon Rocket,BFR)进行一次昂贵、浪漫,又危险重重的环月旅行。

前泽友作表示,通过访问特斯拉,他对马斯克的性格非常有好感,且他同员工之间的关系也非常不错。

“他们相信马斯克,从企业家的角度来看,这样的公司非常了不起。”

尽管还没有决定带谁加入这一月球之旅,但42岁的前泽友作透露,自己计划邀请6-8名艺术家、建筑师、设计师和其他有创意的人进行为期一周的绕月旅行,希望被邀请的同行者们回到地球后,能够受到启发、有所创造。

前泽友作生于1975年11月22日,是日本最大时尚在线网站 Zozotown创始人。2017年个人净资产36亿美元,在日本富豪榜排名第14,目前身价36亿美元。除此之外,他还是一位艺术收藏家,东京当代艺术基金会创办人。他早年曾创办SwitchStyle乐队、拒绝上大学、带上女友游荡美国,通过邮购进口CD赚得第一桶金。2000年起打造在线平台,2004年创办时尚在线网站Zozotown,是一位不折不扣的“朋克”。

一直以来,前泽友作都以出手阔绰著称,曾经购买了包括让-米歇尔-巴斯奎特(Jean-Michel Basquiat)和安迪-沃霍尔(AndyWarhol)的作品,但他同样乐于与公众分享这些作品。

他本人对这次太空旅行可能存在的危险不屑一顾,就像他对推特上与马斯克有关的风险不屑一顾一样。

“如果你开始考虑这个问题(风险),就会没完没了。我期望能更接近月球,希望用自己双眼看到地球的全貌,每每想到这儿都会让我热泪盈眶。”

目前,前泽友作还没有开始为这次任务进行训练,但他认为这一太空训练不会太复杂,自己计划利用一天工作6小时的空闲时间来安排训练。不过,前泽友作一直在接受定期体检,并在抓紧进修英语。

“我觉得英语是必须学会的技能,以前我通常被人们称作是‘前泽时尚先生’,而现在已经变成了‘前泽月球先生’。”前泽友作用日语说道。

全世界都记得1969年阿波罗号宇航员尼尔-阿姆斯特朗在登上月球时说的第一句话:“这是个人的一小步,却是人类的一大步。”对于自己月球之旅的“宣言”,前泽友作也有自己的想法,但措辞会更加随意一些。

“我想说的是:如果世界和平,生活不是会变得更好吗?”前泽友作说道。(综合/汤姆)

          How the economics of ideas and climate earned pair a Nobel Prize      Cache   Translate Page      

William Nordhaus and Paul Romer have been awarded the 2018 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences (colloquially known as the economics Nobel). Both are macroeconomists dealing with long-run dynamics–big questions of what spurs economic growth, the importance of sustainable growth, and how to tackle climate change.

The mainstream economic analysis of the 1970s, when Romer was a graduate student and Nordhaus was an assistant professor, was mostly dedicated to what’s known as general equilibrium analysis: If consumers were to maximize their utilities, and producers were to maximize their profits, what would happen? Both Romer and Nordhaus provided key insights to thinking about what happens over time. That is, how our individual decisions today shape the outcomes for society as a whole in the future. They both framed their ideas in the then nascent field of economic growth, and both changed it completely.

The concept of economic growth was jump-started by Robert Solow (who won the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in 1987) with a model that connected the decision to save with the amount of capital available in the economy. It was mostly used as a device to connect the past and the future by obtaining constant growth rates that made sure the economy scaled with time.

But economists failed to address the underlying reasons for technological progress–it was just assumed to happen–and they took the fact that it had risen enormously since the industrial revolution for granted. There was little interest in why some countries grow faster than others: after all, it was assumed, everyone in the world was using similar technologies.

Romer’s contribution

Romer, it has been suggested, was inspired by a graph showing how economic growth has skyrocketed since the industrial revolution, and decided he wanted to get to the bottom of it.

In doing so, Romer changed the old approach to economic growth completely. Instead of technological growth simply happening–as if falling upon the economy from the sky–his doctoral thesis assumed that economic agents, such as people or businesses, can actively affect the speed of economic growth. The nice thing about ideas, Romer put forward, is that if I use your idea, you are not one idea short. This is different from capital, labor, and other classical factors of production. If we all produce more ideas, we all benefit from these new ideas, not just the people who produce them.

The rate of growth of GDP per person began to meaningfully depend upon the proportion of the labor force dedicated to developing new ideas. Obviously, more people producing ideas means less people producing goods in the short run. But you’d get a higher rate of growth in the long run due to more ideas leading to better productivity. Other economists followed this line of thinking (Robert Barro, Daron Acemoglu, Philippe Aghion–all prize candidates for a few years now), and the Journal of Economic Growth that covers these topics is now one of the most prestigious and most cited in economics.

Taking climate into account

William Nordhaus is known to many who studied economics 20 years ago. The economics textbook he wrote with Paul Samuelson was translated into 17 languages for undergraduate introductory courses; I myself used a Russian translation in the 1990s. Nordhaus, at the same time, had a different take on economic growth as a fundamental virtue.

Growth in the 1980s was very mechanical, aimed mostly at obtaining a certain growth rate and ignoring the fact that many economic goods, such as natural resources and clean air, are hard to reproduce. Climate change and its effect on everyone’s well-being, he pointed out, is not a part of national accounts, while profits and GDP are. Under his guidance, the Dynamic Integrated and Regional Integrated climate models (known as DICE and RICE) were developed to take climate change explicitly into account when analyzing global changes such as the Kyoto protocol.

Nordhaus’s work was not only to be included in academic syllabi: The U.S. government’s Environmental Protection Agency used it to analyze the social cost of carbon dioxide emissions. Other economists, such as Martin Weitzman or Partha Dasgupta, were also instrumental in this field and could have shared this prize.

Fundamentally, both Romer and Nordhaus have contributed to the economics profession in the same way. They recognized that economic growth should not be driven solely by putting more stuff into factories and getting more out of them. They recognized that people can influence growth by their choices–whether that’s the speed of growth through exchanging ideas (Romer) or what that growth looks like and how sustainable it is (Nordhaus). And, most importantly, they drove many other economists toward these issues.

That’s how prevalent death was when NASA crammed these guys in tin cans and sat them atop massive booster rockets packed with enough volatile fuel to equal a small atomic bomb. Blast off, indeed.Now imagine one of those big babies doubled in size and you start to get an idea of the thrust [...]

PM Tells Cabinet ‘Prepare for War With Gaza’
Breaking Israel News
Latest News Biblical perspective
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz October 8, 2018 , 5:24 pm
“Of David. Blessed is Hashem, my rock, who trains my hands for battle, my fingers for warfare;” Psalms 144:1 (The Israel Bible™)
Benjamin Netanyahu (second from right) chairs a cabinet meeting in Jerusalem. (Credit: Kobi Gideon/GPO)
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his cabinet on Sunday that he is preparing for a military solution to the violence on the country’s southern border.

“If the reality of civil distress in Gaza is diminished, that is desirable, but that is not certain to happen, and so we are preparing militarily,” Netanyahu said in the cabinet meeting. “That is not an empty statement.”

The prime minister’s remarks come after the Defense Ministry ordered IDF troops to send reinforcements to the region on Thursday in preparation for a possible escalation.

Israel has been threatened by the weekly Hamas-led March of Return protests which began in March, bringing tens of thousands of Gazans to the border. Though several media reports have described the protests as peaceful, protesters hurl projectiles, firebombs, and hand grenades at IDF troops stationed along the security fence separating Gaza from Israel. There have been many attempts, some successful, to infiltrate the border and to place explosive devices on the fence. In July, a Hamas sniper armed with a specialized rifle killed one IDF soldier and wounded another. The violence has been intensifying in recent weeks.

At least 193 Palestinians, including at least 50 Hamas members, have been killed since the riots began.

In a tactic that has proven successful, Hamas operatives have sent thousands of incendiary balloons and kitesover the border, burning between 7,000-9,000 acres of farmland and nature preserves in southern Israel.

In July, Hamas fired close to 200 rockets and projectiles at Israeli cities, leading the IDF to strike 40 Hamas military targets in Gaza. After the hostilities, Minister of Education Naftali Bennett confronted Chief of General Staff Gadi Eisenkot and demanded that the IDF take more active measures to protect Israelis from the ongoing attacks by aerial incendiary devices.

Attempts by Egypt to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas were recently discontinued. The conflict between Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas have exacerbated the tension in the region. Last week, Abbas threatened to cut off all funding to Gaza if Hamas does not hand over complete control of Gaza.The PA gives approximately $93 million each month to Gaza.

Israeli security officials told Hadashot news that a financial crisis could drive Hamas to initiate a conflict with Israel. They also warned that such a conflict could expand into Judea and Samaria.

Israeli Kan broadcasting reported that  Abbas spoke with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi on Saturday. Al-Sisi reportedly warned Abbas that additional measures against Gaza would endanger the Egyptian security, particularly in the Sinai Peninsula. Egyptian forces are already contending against ISIS operatives in the area and would not welcome an increase in tensions along the border.

          Declaration of pay hike brings mixed response in Tripura district      Cache   Translate Page      
The declaration of pay hike in the form of Pay Commission implementation for the state government employees yesterday has brought about mixed response in the northern Tripura district of Dhalai here as has expressed the rank and file.The long waited pay hike has obviously brought an air of happiness for the employees. After a long waiting we have got the pay hike. And for that w are thankful to the state government, expressed one employee identified as Ratish Sarkar from the subdivision of Ambassa. Another employee identified as Sudip Pal has remarked, The declaration has brought greater responsibilities for the employees. At the same time if the government announces some wage hike for the working class in MGNREGA or in other sectors it would be of more happiness.In fact, the economic condition recently has much deteriorated due to lack of work in the rural areas and the working class has greatly hoped that the government will provide something for them. In the districts the business has received major jolt as the rank and file hardly have much cash and rocketing price hike. A youth activist from Bharatiya Janata Yuba Morcha (BJYM) on the condition of anonymity has remarked, The government has taken epoch making decision by awarding pay commission. Employees under the banner of Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangha (BMS) have taken out colourful greeting rallies. But the air of happiness can not reach all strata as the commoners are yet to receive much waited relief.It might be mentioned here that, after coming into power the BJP-IPFT coalition government has formed the three member committee for pay commission having former Chief Secretary of Assam P P Verma as the Chairman, Manoj Kumar, Principal Secretary of Urban Development Department as member and Additional Secretary of Finance P R Bhattacharjee as member.

          Choose THIS Color of Website Button for Maximum Sales      Cache   Translate Page      

,

Can the colors that you use on your website actually help to make or break its success? It seems far-fetched, but there is research to support the claim.

 

Color and Perception

 

In fact, psychologists have spent years studying how color affects human perception. They theorize that certain colors may make you feel hungry, excited, sad, curious or happy. Now, experienced website builders are taking note of these findings and using them to their advantage.

 

Color Sets the Mood

 

The reality is that colors affect how people feel. The eyes perceive a color, and this is communicated to the hypothalamus in the brain. This communication results in a variety of signals being sent to the pituitary gland, through the endocrine system and straight to the glands in the thyroid. The thyroid, of course, is responsible for releasing hormones into the human body. Those hormones can be powerful, influencing mood and behavior.

 

Color Influences Buying Decisions

 

People who study color psychology estimate that when people assess a product, color is the number-one, overriding factor in their consideration. Many consumers make a split-second, albeit perhaps subconscious, decision regarding whether or not they are going to buy something based almost solely on the color.

 

Color Use Drives Website Conversion

 

Whether webmasters realize it or not, color psychology also is at work on their websites. The colors that they choose for the main elements on the pages and the buttons that visitors use to make purchases really do make a difference. Choose the right color, and your conversions may skyrocket. Go with the wrong color, and you may find yourself dealing with a dismal conversion rate.

 

Color and Distinctive Branding Go Together

 

Big organizations put a great deal of time, money and effort into branding. This includes the company name and a distinctive logo, but these aren't the only considerations. Of primary importance is the color in which the logo and brand name are presented.

 

 

Accordingly, it makes sense to put some serious thought into the colors that you use on your website. The backgrounds, borders, hero graphics, popups and buttons all need to present a coordinated color strategy. Even more important than coordination is choosing colors that will have website visitors clicking on the "buy" button.

 

Colors Need to Match the Business

 

When it comes to using colors on websites, it feels a bit like the stars have to be in alignment. The colors have to be right for your brand and be appealing to your target audience.

 

Suppose your website needs to advertise the services of an online security company. The organization is fairly conservative, and so is its clientele. Splashy oranges, yellows and greens are probably not the way to go. Instead, tones of white, black, silver and navy blue are preferable. These colors are classic and pleasing to the eye. Moreover, they may be suggestive of trustworthiness and reliability, characteristics that most people would value when it comes to protecting their personal data from cyber criminals.

 

Alternatively, consider the case of a party planning business. Fun and vibrant events are their specialties. They do everything from birthday gatherings for six-year-olds to retirement parties for business executives. This may call for some brighter, more energizing colors. Red, yellow and orange wouldn't be out of place. Plus, you might see some pinks and purples, depending upon the event. Whatever specific colors are chosen, they should evoke feelings of fun and excitement.

 

Gender Matters

 

It also may be profitable to consider the gender of your typical customer. Research suggests that women gravitate toward blue, purple and green while they are repelled by orange, brown and gray. Men are different. Like women, they prefer blue and green, but black is a favorite too. Most of them dislike brown, orange and purple. The upshot is that if your business is primarily geared toward either women or men, then you should take these gender-based likes and dislikes into consideration when creating a color scheme for your website.

 

Colors for Call to Action Buttons

 

Many website gurus swear by using green on call to action buttons. Typically associated with all things natural and environmentally friendly, it seems that green also is an effective hue when it is used on website elements like "buy," "add to cart" and "submit" buttons. It is especially effective when it is the only green element on the page. Researchers say that this is because of something called the "isolation effect." When the conversion step on your website is the only green element, users can't help but be drawn to it.

 

Other colors also perform well when it comes to increasing conversions. Orange is a particular favorite of web designers as you can tell by this typical product recommendation layout. Note the recommended purchase choices are accompanied in each instance by a big orange button. Red and yellow convert well in this environment also.

 

Darker colors tend to exhibit low conversion rates. Either people don't see them or the dark colors are actually de-motivational. Overall, orange is not a favorite color of either men or women. Red can be the color of danger, and yellow is often used as a warning. If these colors are generally distasteful, why do they perform so well from a website conversion standpoint?

 

 

The answer may be that these oft-reviled colors can’t help but draw attention. Someone perusing a website can't keep their eyes from migrating toward those call to action buttons in colors like red, orange and yellow. This is why you may want to choose an overall color scheme for your website, but then use call to action buttons in contrasting colors like green, red, yellow or orange.

 

Final Thought

 

Of course, white space also can be a wonderful thing on a website. Don't neglect or banish this restful shade from your pages. It's what lets your visitors feel like they can relax and breathe while browsing. Plus, it will make the other colors that you choose pop off the page.

          This bizarre electric bike can reach 50 miles per hour, and yes, you’re going to be able to buy it      Cache   Translate Page      
The design of vehicles like cars and cycles has historically been limited by the fact that you have to cram a gas-burning engine somewhere inside of them. The recent push for efficient electric power has really opened up the doors for designers to do some wild things with their vehicles, and SOL Motors just unveiled a new electric bike that looks downright alien. Called the Pocket Rocket, the bike features a cylindrical body and almost perfectly symmetrical tube frame. It's looks utterly strange but familiar at the same time, and it's got plenty of power to push its rider. According to SOL Motors the vehicle isn't an e-bike because "it's too fast" and it's not a moped because "it has no pedals." So what is it? Well, SOL has taken the unusual step of declaring that it's the first in a totally new class of vehicles that it calls "nopeds." The Pocket Rocket, which SOL says is the "perfect urban commuter vehicle," comes in two flavors. The first, called the Pocket Rocket S, tops out at just over 30 mph with its 6 horsepower motor and will land with a price tag of around $6,000 according to Designboom. The second, which is just called the Pocket Rocket, has a more powerful 8.5 horsepower motor and can reach speeds of 50 mph, and will cost $7,500. The vehicle's cigar-shaped body makes lighting a pretty simple affair, with an array of LED lights in the front and a large circular red brake light in the rear. The bike has a trio of driving modes which include eco, sport, and (humorously) a wheelie mode. While riding, the bike uses regenerative braking to replenish its power reserves, but you'll obviously still need to charge it. For that, the removable battery can be plugged into any normal wall outlet, according to SOL.

          Farewell Elton John at Nassau Coliseum      Cache   Translate Page      


Tina and I just got back from Elton John's fabulous Farewell Yellow Brick Road Concert at the Nassau Coliseum.  This is the third retiring tour concert we've been to in the past few weeks - Paul Simon and Joan Baez were the previous - and each was superb and special in its own way.

Elton John's music has played a surprisingly significant role throughout my professional life - surprising not because his songs (with lyrics by Bernie Taupin) have been wonderful, numerous, and memorable, but because they've had such diverse impact on my own creative work.


Most recently, my novelette, Marilyn and Monet, maybe in the earliest stages of being made into a movie, begins with Marilyn hearing "Candle in the Wind" as she walks off the set of The Misfits with Montgomery Clift in 1961 (hey, it's a science fantasy story).

Back when I began my life as a published writer, the fourth article I wrote for The Village Voice was inspired by "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" - an assessment of how the Wizard of Oz figured in rock music in its first decades.  Never read that article?  Not surprising.  The Village Voice - or rather its then new music editor, dyspeptic critic Robert Christgau, declined to publish it, after his predecessor Diane Fischer had published my first three articles ever published, all about music.  (I tell more of that story here.)

And Elton John's "Rocket Man" has had more long range influence on my work.  One of the few rock songs that were science fiction, it epitomized my passion as a writer for both rock music and science fiction.  And, indeed, I'll soon be recording a brand new album of my songs with science fiction themes for Old Bear Records in Batavia, New York.


Elton John sang all of these and 21 more at his concert tonight.   He hit most of the notes beautifully, and his back-up band was tight as a drum.  I've admired Ray Cooper even since I saw the way he played the tambourine in the George Harrison Memorial Concert.  It was a real treat seeing him in person, singing "pow, pow, pow" as he beat the bejesus out of the drums and anything percussive he could hit.

Elton's repartee was clever, but, more important, he comes across as one decent, sincere human being.  The graphics on the screen behind him were a tour de force.   I'm glad I had a chance to see him in person.  I know I'll continue singing his songs in my head, and who knows what big things that may lead to.

          Google’s New Pixel 3 Phone Can Fight Robocalls With Roboreplies      Cache   Translate Page      

Google is giving phone users the option to spam their spammers. The new Pixel 3 smartphone, which the company unveiled on Tuesday, features a virtual assistant that can help screen out robocalls by responding to the automated calls with its own automated messages. With the tap of a button, users will be able to send suspicious incoming calls to the assistant, which will tell the caller, “Hi, the person you’re calling is using a screening service from Google, and will get a copy of this conversation. Go ahead and say your name, and why you’re calling.” The assistant then transcribes the caller’s response in real time. Based on this response, the user can either accept the call, send a preset text, or report it as spam. The last option directs the assistant to tell the telemarketer, “Please remove the number from your mailing contact list. Thanks, and goodbye.” Google said it eventually plans to roll the A.I. tool out to all Pixel models.

There will presumably be a bit of a learning curve for actual people calling Pixel phones who will have to speak to a robot to prove that they are not a robot, but the screening process seems straightforward enough—it’s not as if you have to pass a CAPTCHA test or anything. And no doubt telemarketers will eventually find workarounds using half-truths or outright lies in their responses to the assistant to trick people into picking up, though this represents one more barrier in their way.

Robocalls have been on the rise in recent years, with experts predicting that they will account for 46 percent of all calls by the middle of 2019. The FTC received 375,000 robocall complaints per month in 2017, up from 63,000 complaints per month in 2009.* Automated call numbers have skyrocketed even in the past year: The screening service YouMail estimates that 3.4 billion robocalls were made in April, a staggering increase of 900 million per month compared to 2017. The FCC has of late attempted to stymie this fire hose of pesky calls by instituting new regulations around manipulating caller ID and by fining big-time robocallers millions of dollars, though it’s unclear if this has done much to ameliorate the issue.

Google in July updated its Android Phone app to implement a tool that can automatically identify some spam callers via caller ID and allow users to send them to voicemail. However, the tool had trouble identifying spammers engaging in neighbor spoofing, a technique that disguises robocalls with local numbers. No doubt such methods will continue to fool people—but if they’re suspicious, the Pixel 3’s technology will at least give them one new tool to fight back.

Correction, Oct. 9, 2018: This piece originally misreported the number of robocall complaints per month the FTC received in 2009. The correct number is 63,000, not 39,000.


          10/09 Links Pt2: UNRWA teaches children to blow themselves up; Archaeologists unearth 2000-year-old Hebrew 'Jerusalem' inscription; Anti-Zionist Conspiracy Theories Seek the Mainstream      Cache   Translate Page      
From Ian:

'UNRWA teaches children to blow themselves up'
In Jerusalem, Mayor Nir Barkat presented a plan to remove all UNRWA operations from the capital and begin providing full municipal services to the residents of Shuafat, where UNRWA operates schools and clinics without Israeli permission.

The Jerusalem move follows a decision by the US to cut aid to UNRWA because it is an organization that perpetuates the refugee problem instead of acting to solve the issue.

Arutz Sheva spoke to Bassam Eid, a human rights activist who has been studying UNRWA's schools and institutions for years, bringing the paralyzed Palestinian Arab voices that have been struggling for years under UNRWA, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority.

"I have been saying for years that UNRWA has become part of the problem and not part of the solution," said Eid, "For 70 years, UNRWA has been managing the affairs of the Palestinian refugees and has not managed to reduce the problem or resolve the refugee problem within seventy years. "I am interested in continuing to manage the issue of the Palestinian refugees."

"I support Trump's decision to stop UNRWA funds," Bassem Eid said, adding that "65 percent of UNRWA funds go to salaries and the renting of buildings and offices, salaries of $25,000 a month and luxury vehicles. I want to close this organization so that its employees will be unemployed and become refugees themselves."

Eid also criticized the education provided in UNRWA schools. "I worked in several UNRWA schools in the territories and in Jordan, and children aged 9-10 want to be killed and kill Jews and to release their people. "Who taught you that?" I asked. They said that was what they were learning in schools, and I asked teachers at UNRWA schools in Jordan if children were taught to blow themselves up and be killed. They said "of course. How else will they liberate the land from the Israeli occupation? " UNRWA is aware of this, and the international community knows that all UNRWA studies are full of hate and incitement. The international community continues to inject funds because it is against Israel."

Top UNRWA official says he champions both Israel and Palestinian refugees
Just a few years ago, Peter Mulrean was defending Israel in what is arguably one of the most hostile diplomatic environments for the Jewish state.

In 2013, as the US deputy ambassador to the United Nations Humans Rights Council in Geneva, he hailed Jerusalem for its “strong commitment and track record in upholding human rights, political freedoms and civil liberties.”

Today, Mulrean is a senior official at UNRWA, the UN agency dealing with Palestinian refugees, arguably the most hated organization in Israel and one the US government recently called “irredeemably flawed.”

From his office just across from UN headquarters in Manhattan’s Turtle Bay, Mulrean promotes the agency on the world’s largest international stage.

The director of UNRWA’s Representative Office in New York decries the recent budget cuts by the US administration and passionately rejects the often-made argument that the agency perpetuates the Palestinian refugee problem and stands in the way of a realistic solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Human Rights Council Elections Set to Deliver Another Record-High Number of Rights-Abusing Members
The U.N. holds annual “elections” for its Human Rights Council this week and, once again, none of the five regional groups are offering any competition for the vacant seats. Instead all five are putting up “closed slates” of candidates – a practice seen as one of the main reasons rights-abusing regimes are able to secure seats.

Indeed, the absence of competitive slates makes it possible to predict, three days before the U.N. General Assembly holds the exercise in New York, that next year the 47-member HRC will have 14 members – 29.7 percent – that are graded “not free” by the veteran democracy advocacy group, Freedom House.

That’s a record high for “not free” countries on the 13-year-old council, tied only with the 2018 membership.

Failing unexpected last minute developments, the 2019 HRC membership will comprise 23 “free” countries, 10 “partly free,” and 14 “not free.”

The presence on the U.N.’s top human rights body of regimes with poor human rights records was one of the main reasons cited by the Trump administration for its decision to withdraw over the summer, following what it said were unsuccessful attempts to reform it.



Anti-Zionist Conspiracy Theories Seek the Mainstream
Before Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer lent their academic credentials to a widely discredited 2007 book, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy, alleging an “Israel Lobby” that controls American foreign policy to the detriment of the U.S., conspiracy theories of this sort dwelt mostly within the fringe domain of white supremacists, neo-Nazis, anti-Semites, and their ilk.

These type of conspiracy theories evoked the notorious 1903 fraud, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, purporting to document a nefarious Jewish plot for global domination, manipulating economies, and fomenting war. Despite its exposure as an anti-Semitic fabrication some 20 years later, the Protocol’s bogus charges continued to serve as a staple of anti-Semitic, Nazi and ZOG (“Zionist Occupied Government”) propaganda, inciting hatred, pogroms and massacres against Jews. Hitler referred to the Protocols in his early speeches and in his autobiography, Mein Kampf. It became an integral part of his anti-Jewish ideology and Nazi propaganda. Protocols is also embraced by Holocaust deniers, by Hamas, and is a bestseller among enemies of Israel.

Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer, professors of international affairs at Harvard University and University of Chicago respectively, attempted to bring new acceptance to ‘Zionist-Control-of-Government’ charges by presenting them as a scholarly study far removed from the anti-Semitic claims of the Protocols. Positioning themselves as righteous truth-tellers, Walt and Mearsheimer hastened to assure readers that the Israel lobby is “certainly not a cabal or conspiracy that ‘controls’ U.S. foreign policy” but rather “a powerful interest group, made up of both Jews and gentiles, whose acknowledged purpose is to press Israel’s case within the United States.”

Undermining this disclaimer, however, was the authors’ disturbingly vague definition of the so-called “Israel lobby” as “a loose coalition of individuals and organizations” with “unmatched” power and “the ability to manipulate the American political system” against the interests and well-being of U.S. citizens. Beyond evoking the old claims of disproportionate and undue Jewish influence, the book’s supporting “evidence” was widely dismissed by academicians, reviewers and politicians across the spectrum, who exposed its shoddy scholarship, use of falsified quotations, distortion of facts, and untrue conclusions.
Miko Peled, playing to the antisemitic crowd that adores him
I recently returned from a short vacation in Israel. Visiting Israel should be a requirement for anyone actively engaged in the fight against antisemitism. It works like receiving an antidote. Nothing places the IHRA definition of antisemitism into perspective better than witnessing first-hand the enormous gulf between the democratic reality on Israel’s streets and the non-existent demon-state that is described in anti-Israel Facebook groups. It leaves with you a lasting clarity over the absurdity of the anti-Israel arguments.

Last week Israeli state TV ran a documentary on BDS (in Hebrew). I had given them access to my archives and was interviewed by them for the show. The team who made the documentary had met with Miko Peled in Israel. It is worth viewing this short segment to see how nasty Peled is in real life:


Most people know Peled’s backstory and I have no interest in repeating what others have written before. I was in the room when he spoke about giving Holocaust denial a platform. What always interests me is the support network. Miko Peled is an angry outcast, that nobody should have heard of. Instead he is given top billing at BDS events internationally. We know anti-Zionist Jews are a fringe group, so the question can be asked – just who is in the audience?

As my research into the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign showed, when Jewish people stand up to claim there is no problem with antisemitism, half of the people in the room applauding are hard-core antisemites themselves (see case study on Jackie Walker event p91-110).

I argue that without this support network of antisemites, these fringe anti-Zionist Jews would not have an audience. By placing greater import on the antisemites than the few useful puppets they hide behind I also suggest that this is a more accurate way of looking at the problem. So when Miko Peled responded to my tweet of the video above, my natural instinct was to look at those people who were applauding him.

*It has to be said, that nobody is responsible for those that like, comment or share things they have written*. But that isn’t the point. I am not interested in individuals. Miko Peled is not responsible if one, two or five antisemites are in the audience, but when that level reaches 50% doesn’t it demand that we ask questions? Given the high levels of antisemitic thought present in his audience why is Miko Peled denying their existence?
Cary Nelson: Jasbir Puar Launches Women’s Studies on a Death Spiral
The National Women’s Studies Association (NWSA) has now crossed a further line in self-discreditation by honoring Jasbir Puar’s December 2017 book The Right to Maim: Debility, Capacity, Disability, a publication that discards evidentiary standards and instead bases its accusations against the Jewish state on its author’s personal fantasies. In September 2018 the NWSA awarded The Right to Maimits Alison Piepmeier Book Prize, describing the book as a “major milestone.” It has now officially endorsed an irresponsible and discriminatory research agenda for feminist faculty and students.

My book in manuscript—Israel Denial: Anti-Zionism, Anti-Semitism, & the Faculty Campaign Against the Jewish State—devotes its longest chapter (30,000 words) to an analysis of Jasbir Puar’s publications. Most anti-Israel faculty publications focus on debatable propositions. Not Puar. You can debate the claim that Israel discriminates against its Arab citizens, but so long as there is evidence of racism among some Israelis you cannot wholly discredit the accusation. Puar, however, makes arguments that can actually be proven factually right or wrong. They are consistently false.

Take one example: she claims that Israel has been stunting the growth of Palestinian children. Stunting (below normal height) means children are at greater risk for illness, reduced cognitive capacity, and premature death. The WHO, UNICEF, and other groups publish statistical reports on this and other health concerns. So does the Palestinian Authority. There are scores of published academic papers on the subject. All come to the same conclusion: comparing stunting rates across the world proves it is not a major health problem in Gaza or the West Bank. The WHO standard for classifying stunting as a major health concern is 20%. Stunting in the West Bank Gaza runs at 7-10% of children aged 1-5 years. By comparison, Egypt’s rate is 19.8%. Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia include countries with dramatically higher stunting rates: India (38.4%), Ethiopia (38.4%), Zambia (40%), Pakistan (45%), Madagascar (49.2%), Eritrea (50.2%), and Burundi (57.5%). Puar cites none of this research. If Israel is stunting the growth of Palestinian children it is doing a very poor job indeed.

To publish an anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic book without factual proof Puar did not have to find the long lost publisher of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. She simply gave the manuscript to Duke University Press. There it would be judged by people within the echo-chamber of anti-Zionists who don’t care about facts. Their standard for original scholarship is “Tell us something bad about Israel we don’t already know.” Duke obviously did not do any independent fact-checking. It then added the Duke University imprimatur to a book that dishonors the University and should be withdrawn from publication. Instead, The Right to Maimwill probably earn Puar a full professorship at Rutgers. After all, distinguished scholars like Judith Butler have endorsed the book on its jacket. Credulous audiences in universities across the country applaud its arguments when Puar lectures. And now the book has a national award.
In Its Current Form, the Labor Party Threatens the Freedom and Safety of the UK’s Jews
Since Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the British Labor party in 2015, his indifference to anti-Semitism within his party’s ranks, friendliness with terrorists, and hostility toward Israel and Zionists have caused mounting public concern. Daniel Johnson assesses the state of affairs:

Corbyn’s long record of support for nations and organizations that are implacably opposed to the West is unprecedented. Rightly, the public is anxious about what this might portend, were he ever to occupy Downing Street. . . . Corbyn takes cognizance only of those Jews (a vanishingly small minority) who share his loathing of Israel—not unlike the [turn-of-the-century] anti-Semitic mayor of Vienna, Karl Lueger, who notoriously quipped: “I’ll decide who is a Jew.” . . .

Jeremy Corbyn is a guilty man who protests his innocence while presiding over a purge of any Labor MP who tells the truth. . . . And for what purpose? The Corbyn case is also about politics—electoral politics. In the words of Mehdi Hasan, now the political editor of the Huffington Post and a presenter for Al Jazeera, “anti-Semitism isn’t just tolerated in some sections of the British Muslim community; it’s routine and commonplace. . . . It’s our dirty little secret.” In the five years since Hasan made his confession, anti-Semitism has become the “dirty little secret” of another community: the left wing of the Labor party. And there is a connection: the left is targeting Muslim votes. No wonder Corbyn has greeted all accusations of anti-Semitism . . . with indifference or silence.

Instead of challenging this vile prejudice and demanding that Muslim community leaders address the canker in their midst, the Labor party has quietly acquiesced. It tolerates the Corbyn camp’s toadying to anti-Semitic preachers and demagogues. How different the outcome of the Corbyn case might have been if more Muslims had denounced the Labor leader to demonstrate their revulsion at anti-Semitism. . . .
'Corbyn anti-Semite who wants to return Britain to dark times'
Britain’s Parliament hosted Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon Tuesday.

In his address, the ambassador referred to statements made by opposition leader and Labour Party chairman Jeremy Corbyn, calling him “an anti-Semite who wants to return Britain to darker periods in its history.”

The ambassador added that “in his actions and statements, Corbyn gives oxygen to incidents of racism by embracing his terrorist friends and encouraging the activities of BDS. Israel stands by the Jewish community in England.”

Corbyn and the Labour Party have faced a string of scandals involving anti-Semitism and accusations of bigotry in recent months.

The Daily Mail has published photos of the Labour leader at a cemetery in Tunisia holding a wreath near the graves of some of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) terrorists who were responsible for the massacre of the 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Days later, a picture emerged of Corbyn apparently making a salute linked to the Muslim Brotherhood organization.

That week, the Times of London published a picture of Corbyn meeting with the leader-in-exile of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) terrorist organization, only weeks before its members carried out an attack on a Jerusalem synagogue in which six people were murdered.
Non-Jews fight UK Labour anti-Semitism from the inside
Steeped in anti-Semitism accusations involving him and his supporters, British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has made many Jewish enemies — including inside his own party.

But one of his most effective critics is not Jewish. He is a meteorology student at the University of Reading who describes himself as “just a kid with a laptop.”

Denny Taylor, 20, has used that laptop to keep a running tally of party members who have flouted Labour’s own guidelines against hate speech and report them to the party’s ethics review panel.

Horrified at the revelations about Corbyn’s ties to anti-Semites, Taylor set up Labour Against Anti-Semitism, or LAAS, in 2016 with a few dozen non-Jewish and Jewish volunteers. He was 18 and had voted the previous year for Corbyn.

It was LAAS that last month reported to Labour’s ethics panel on an old recording in which Corbyn declared that Zionists “don’t understand English irony.” The group has flagged 1,200 alleged members who it said have breached the party’s guidelines against hate speech and has a backlog of about 2,000 additional cases of people engaging in what LAAS considers anti-Semitic rhetoric. LAAS has not reported the latter yet, according to its spokesman, Euan Philipps, who also is not Jewish.
Fliers on 4 college campuses blame Jews for Kavanaugh ruckus
Fliers blaming Jews for the sexual assault allegations against newly sworn-in Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh were posted on two University of California campuses, Berkeley and Davis, as well as at Vassar and Marist colleges, both located in the same city in New York state.

“Every time some Anti-White, Anti-American, Anti-freedom event takes place, you look at it, and it’s Jews behind it,” the fliers discovered Monday read.

The flier shows an image of Kavanaugh surrounded by caricatures of Jewish members of the US Senate with Stars of David drawn on their foreheads, as well as the Jewish billionaire George Soros, who has been accused of funding opposition to Kavanaugh. One of Kavanaugh’s accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, and the attorney for two others, Michael Avenatti, also are depicted with the words “Good Goy” written on their foreheads.

The fliers say they are “Brought to you by your local Stormer book club.”

According to the ADL, the Daily Stormer Book Club chapters, or SBCs, are “small crews of young white men who follow and support Andrew Anglin and his neo-Nazi website, the Daily Stormer.”

Petition Denouncing Upcoming Anti-Zionist Conference at UCLA Passes 2,000 Signatures
A petition urging the University of California, Los Angeles to reconsider hosting an upcoming anti-Zionist conference surpassed 2,000 signatories on Friday, amid a continuing outcry against the event.

The online petition — launched by the campus branch of the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) — says the eighth annual National Students for Justice in Palestine (NSJP), which was first announced in August, “is designed to instill hatred towards and intolerance while proliferating lies about Israel.”

The event marks the largest annual gathering of NSJP activists, who help promote the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel on North American university campuses — a campaign denounced by major Jewish organizations, and opposed by both UCLA and UC regents.

The conference will seek to remind students “that Zionism … can be destroyed,” according to its organizers, who define Zionism — the movement that supports the Jewish people’s right to national self-determination — as “ethnic cleansing, destruction, mass expulsion, apartheid, and death.”

These objectives have drawn criticism from the UCLA branch of Students Supporting Israel (SSI), as well as the groups Alums for Campus Fairness at UCLA and StandWithUs, all of which oppose the BDS campaign.
New York City's Islamist Grant
On August 21, the New York City Council announced $250,000 in grants made to 14 Muslim community organizations, in collaboration with the New York Immigration Coalition. Alarmingly, three of the grant recipients are linked to Islamic extremism -- the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).

Worse, it seems that ICNA, in particular, plans to use the money not for civic improvement but for religious proselytizing.

The grant announcement was made at ICNA's headquarters in Jamaica, Queens, after the jumu'ah prayer service. Present were the young speaker of the city council, Corey Johnson, and Councilman Daneek Miller, the sole Muslim member of the council.

Councilman Miller is no stranger to ICNA; his campaign website prominently features a photo of him speaking at the ICNA mosque.

ICNA was established in 1971, ostensibly as a "non-ethnic, non-sectarian" grassroots organization, with the aim of seeking the "establishment of the Islamic system of life as spelled out in the Qur'an."

In fact, it functions as the American arm of the Pakistani Islamist group Jamaat e-Islami (JI). Indeed, ICNA's international charity, Helping Hand for Relief and Development (HHRD), works closely with JI in Pakistan. Worse, in 2017 HHRD openly worked with the "political" wing of the murderous terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Amazon Funnelled Cash to Salafist Org Founded by ‘Extremist’ UK-Based Saudi Scholar
Amazon has been funnelling cash to a Salafist ‘charity’ led by an Islamic scholar described as “one of the most dangerous men in Britain” by counter-extremists, a British newspaper has claimed.

The Jeff Bezos-led retail giant allowed the Muslim Research and Development Foundation (MRDF) founded by Saudi-born Haitham al-Haddad into its Amazon Smile programme, which allows customers to donate a percentage of their purchases to charity, according to a Times investigation.

Al-Haddad has been branded “dangerous” by the Quilliam counter-extremism think tank, and as “misogynistic, racist, and homophobic” by UK Government counter-extremism commissioner Sara Khan.

A series of controversial statements by the Salafist scholar — a graduate in Islamic law from the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) — have been compiled by The Times, advancing a range of hardline views.

These include claims that adulterous women should be stoned to death, and that he has, in fact, received “many requests from Western women… begging me to help them to find their way to a Muslim country to be stoned to death” so they could “avoid punishment in the afterlife” — although it is not revealed whether he actually did facilitate any voluntary executions of this kind.

“It is the Islamic punishment. What does the UK government want? Do they want Muslims to change their beliefs?” he demanded.
Bennett protests to University of Michigan over Netanyahu-Hitler comparison
Education Minister Naftali Bennett sent a letter to the University of Michigan’s President Mark Schlissel, urging him to oppose anti-Israel hatred on campus after a lecturer compared Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Adolf Hitler, claiming both are guilty of genocide.

Bennett also raised a previous case of a University of Michigan professor who would not write a letter of recommendation for a student who wanted to study abroad in Israel, a spokesperson for the minister said in a statement Tuesday.

“The time has come for you as head of the university to make a strong stand against what has clearly become a trend of vitriolic hatred against the Jewish state on your campus,” Bennett wrote to the university president.

During a compulsory lecturer, speaker Emory Douglas, part of the “Penny Stamps Speakers Series Presentation” of the Stamps School of Art & Design, displayed a slide that showed a picture of Netanyahu and Hitler with the words “Guilty Of Genocide” written across their faces.

Below the photo was a definition of genocide as “The deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular nation or ethnic group.”
Pamela Geller: Brown University Celebrates 'Palestinians' on 'Indigenous Peoples’ Day'
Last week, Brown University’s Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs sent out greeting for “Indigenous Peoples’ Day Weekend,” which has replaced Fall Weekend — Columbus Day weekend — in the uber-politically correct academic environment. Brown’s action is part of the larger effort by the academic left to cast Columbus as a villain and focus on Native Americans as sainted martyrs.

But as if this celebration weren’t politicized enough, Brown made it poisonously so by including the “Palestinians” among the “indigenous people” whose plight was being observed. But what makes this story extra insidious is the fact that the school took this anti-American movement and attempted to turn it into an anti-Israel day as well. The left is so desperate to attack Israel that they twisted their own attack on the U.S. to do so.

“Indigenous Peoples’ Day (IPD),” explained the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, “celebrates the resilience and accomplishments of Indigenous people and acknowledges the contemporary struggles indigenous communities face today. Further, IPD is an intervention against erasure, a principle barrier to the improvement of indigenous sovereignty and health status.”

The struggling indigenous people in question, according to the Diversity Office, included “567 Federally Recognized tribes, 61 State Recognized tribes,” as well as “Hawaiians and the people indigenous to its territories in the Caribbean and Pacific Oceans.” Many of these groups, the announcement went on, “experience profound disparities in health care access and health status compared to the general population, resulting in elevated rates of diabetes, liver disease, and other chronic diseases,” which are “exacerbated by a significant shortage of primary care physicians in Indigenous communities and a long-standing mistrust of the American health care system rooted in a history of genocide and forced assimilation.”
Boycott's new target: Bulldozer companies
Anti-Israel boycott (BDS) organizations recently identified a new target. Following the planned evacuation of Khan al-Ahmar, BDS is looking to boycott the bulldozers used to demolish the illegal structures.

Strategic application of measured violence and international sympathy have protected the Bedouins of Khan al-Ahmar from expulsion, and "stopped bulldozers, produced by international corporations to demolish homes and schools," a BDS statement said.

"The strategic BDS campaign is critical, as the Supreme Court approved demolition of Khan al-Ahmar to make way for illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land, including corporations that manufacture and sell the bulldozers involved in the this destruction by Israel: JCB (UK), Caterpillar (USA), Volvo (Sweden), Hyundai (South Korea), Hitachi (Japan) and Liogong (China)."

Another organization involved in the planned boycott is "Who Profits", which tracks companies that are "commercially involved in Israeli and international companies in the continued Israeli control over Palestinian and Syrian land." The same organization sent boycott warning letters to bulldozer manufacturers. The organization's website also stated that the bulldozers of these companies are used for constructing Jewish settlement in Judea and Samaria as another reason for the boycott.

Lev HaOlam organization founder Attorney Nati Rom, who fights the global boycott and BDS organizations, said: "The BDS organization appears to be boycotting itself, and their steps become more and more ridiculous, as they spread their frustration to giant corporations." Lev HaOlam sends thousands of product packages from Judea and Samaria to Israeli supporters all over the world and is in contact with thousands of foreign citizens.
Minister: If US student held at airport renounces BDS views, we might let her in
Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) on Tuesday said a US student of Palestinian descent, who has been held at Ben Gurion Airport for a week and faces deportation for allegedly supporting an Israel boycott, can leave Israel whenever she wants.

Erdan, whose ministry is responsible for countering the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement against Israel, known as BDS, also said that if Lara Alqasem were to renounce her past activities and publicly declare that boycott efforts are not legitimate, he would reconsider her case.

Alqasem, 22, who has Palestinian grandparents, was prevented from entering the country after arriving at Ben Gurion Airport last Tuesday, despite having received a student visa from the Israeli Consulate in Miami to study in a masters program at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. She has been held in a airport detention facility ever since.

The Population Immigration and Border Authority has said the decision to stop Alqasem at the airport was due to her “boycott activity,” while Strategic Affairs Ministry officials said she was a member of the National Students for Justice in Palestine, a campus group that calls for boycotting Israel over its policies toward the Palestinians.

“They make a show as if Israel is imprisoning a student,” Erdan, who is also public security minister, told Army Radio on Tuesday morning. “She can go home to her country whenever she wants. This student stood at the head of a branch of an extreme organization, and it is not reasonable that she can come here and enjoy Israel’s academic benefits while she is trying to harm Israeli citizens.”
Government said to use Canary Mission blacklist to bar visitors
Reports by a secretive right-wing website that collects and publishes information about anti-Israel activity of university students and others are being used by Israeli authorities to question or ban people attempting to enter the country, according to a report Thursday.

Documents submitted by the Strategic Affairs and Public Diplomacy Ministry on Thursday show that an American student was barred from entering Israel because of “suspicion of boycott activity” based on four Facebook posts and information on the Canary Mission website, the Haaretz daily reported.

Canary Mission is an anonymous website that aims to name and shame anti-Israel activists on campus.

The site “documents individuals and organizations that promote hatred of the USA, Israel and Jews on North American college campuses,” according to its “About us” page.

Critics have accused it of seeking to intimidate pro-Palestinian college students and stifle their activism with the threat of a blacklist.

In August, the Forward newspaper reported that a number of activists believed their Canary Mission profiles were being used by border authorities when they were questioned while trying to enter Israel.
HRC Counterpoint In Chronicle Herald: Ben-Gurion Bashed Unfairly
Leech attacked Ben-Gurion as a Zionist terrorist and a promoter of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from Israel territory. He cited Ilan Pappe’s writings to support his own position. It would have been advisable for the Herald to have enlarged on Leech’s background: he’s a left-wing, vehement opponent of Israel and strong advocate of the BDS movement (Boycott, Divest, Sanction of Israeli goods and of Israel) — as is Pappe.

Leech is the editor of the on-line publication Palestine Journal which includes verbal attacks on Israel, and on Canada for supporting the latter. Among his articles, Leech has written, “Why Israel Should Not Exist” (2015), “Fighting Colonialism in Palestine and Canada” (2015) and “Canada’s support for Israel is a ‘hate crime’” (2015).

Palestine Journal, under Leech’s editorship, has links listed to several groups that are defined as terrorist groups by the Canadian government, as well as links to armed groups.

One questions why the Herald did not offer disclosure about Leech, why CBU proudly employs him to teach young college students, or why Leech’s use of settler colonialism (a deeply flawed historiographic and sociological paradigm) goes unanswered by Nova Scotia academics.

One is better served on the topic of Ben-Gurion and Israel by such books as Walter Laqueur’s A History of Zionism. Settler colonialism advocates among Canadian historians need to reappraise their stance, for this interpretative approach too readily lends itself to anti-Israeli treatises.


EU Civil Servant Convicted of Antisemitic Assault by Belgian Court Says He Will Appeal
The European Union civil servant found guilty last week of a vicious antisemitic assault in 2015 has said he will appeal the sentence handed down by a Belgian court.

Stefan Grech, a 49-year-old Maltese citizen, was convicted of incitement to hate or violence toward people of Jewish faith, violation of anti-racism laws, and assault aggravated by racial hatred following a violent altercation in a Brussels cafe in July 2015 — during which he violently attacked an Italian colleague, called her a “dirty Jewess,” and shouted that “the Jews are doing to the Palestinians what Hitler did to the Jews.”

On Oct. 2, Grech was given a three-year suspended sentence and ordered to pay his victim 500 euros in compensation by a court in Brussels. But over the weekend, the Times of Malta reported that Grech would appeal the sentence, accusing the Brussels-based Belgian League Against Antisemitism (LBCA) of launching a “witch-hunt” against him.

Prior to sentencing Grech — who holds a previous conviction for possession of child pornography — the court heard that on July 16, 2015, he had been celebrating his 10th anniversary as an employee of the European Commission with friends at L’Italiano cafe in the Belgian capital. After drinking heavily throughout the evening, Grech, who had been clutching a metal plaque commemorating the fascist leader Benito Mussolini, embarked on a tirade in praise of the late Italian dictator.

Confronted by a 50-year-old Italian woman who also works in a senior position at the European Commission, Grech attacked her when she pointed out to him that Mussolini had murdered thousands of Jews. Witnesses said that when she told Grech that she “could be Jewish,” he then struck her across the head with the metal plaque and attempted to strangle her. Throughout the assault, he yelled antisemitic epithets including, “dirty Jewess,” and, “You should have all been killed.”
Time's up - but no sign that the archive is moving
The deadline for the return of the Iraqi-Jewish archive - September 2018 - has come and gone, but there is still no sign of any movement on this issue.

Eylon Aslan-Levy has filed this report for i24 News: he interviews Harold Rhode, the man who found the archive in the flooded basement of the secret police headquarters in Baghdad in 2003.

The US shipped the random collection of documents, books and Torah scrolls - stolen by Saddam's regime - to the US to be restored, but promised to send it back to Iraq.

Rhode believes that to return the archive would be like returning stolen Jewish property to the Nazis. Iraqi-Jewish groups have been campaigning for the archive - which represents their community's history and heritage - to remain in the US. Four US senators have introduced a bill to this effect.


Inside Iron Dome's secret manufacturing plant
"Globes" visits the complex of bunkers where Rafael produces Israel's short range missile interceptors.

The complex of bunkers in which Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. is producing the Iron Dome missile interceptors looks just like you would imagine: it is well protected and guarded, the safety procedures in it are rigorous, and access to it is strictly limited to people with authorization. Those entering are received at a locked iron gate opened only by arrangement after being properly identified, even if the person involved is the head of the project himself. There are illuminated signs on the high fences enclosing the secret bunkers reading, "Work with explosives is taking place in this compound."

The condition for entering the bunker in which final assembly of the missile takes place is leaving behind any device capable of broadcasting or creating static electricity. Cameras, telephones, and recording devices are out of bounds. A heavy door opens, showing long white corridor leading to workspace whose purpose is unmistakable: Tamir Iron Dome interceptor missiles that Rafael employees have been manufacturing for the past seven years are piled on a cart in the center of the room.

Only a few people working at Rafael and the Ministry of Defense know just how many of these missiles have been produced to date. They are keeping this number secret; they merely give a wink to the curious, as if to say, "Don't worry; we've got enough."

The well-built Tamir is colored in glittering silver and gold, weighing 90 kilograms with a three-meter length. It has earned great praise with 1,800 interceptions of rockets fired against vulnerable human and property targets in populous areas in southern and northern Israel.

"Every missile leaving here gets a pat and a kiss"
Sonia Orbuch, Who Fought the Nazis as a Teenager, Has Died at 93
As a teenager, Sonia Orbuch joined a group of partisans fighting the Nazis in Eastern Europe. She survived the war and settled in America. At 93, Orbuch died last Sunday at her home in Corte Madera, California.

In 1941 Orbuch was 16 years old and still known by her given name as Sarah Shainwald, when the Nazis occupied her hometown in eastern Poland and began killing Jews in Luboml’s ghetto. Shainwald and her family fled for the forests and after surviving the frozen winter, joined a band of Soviet partisans to fight back against the Nazis. Her fellow resistance fighters changed her name to Sonia because it sounded less Jewish.

The profile of Orbuch on The Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation (JPEF—a group Orbuch helped to found) website describes her actions as a Partisan and her family’s eventual decision to break with the resistance.

Sonia began her new life in the forest encampment that served as a base for missions of sabotage and resistance. Early on, Sonia was assigned to guard duty and providing first-aid on missions to mine enemy train tracks. With little training, Sonia learned the skills of a field-hospital aide, treating the wounds of injured partisans, using whatever makeshift supplies were available. To avoid possible torture and interrogation in the event of capture, Sonia carried two hand grenades: “One for the enemy, and one for myself.”

… In 1944, Sonia and her parents faced the decision of either leaving the partisans or joining the Red Army. They decided to leave the partisans and took refuge in an abandoned house infected with typhus, a condition they were unaware of at the time. The typhus soon claimed Sonia’s mother, leaving only Sonia and her father.


Towards the end of the war, as German forces retreated, Orbuch and her family returned to Luboml and found that of the 8,000 Jews who had lived there before the war, 50 remained.
Childhood friends separated by Holocaust reunite 75 years later
"Estike," Chaya Levy called out as her childhood friend Esther Sheinberg walked in through the door to her apartment and the two met in person for the first time in 75 years.

After greeting one another with warm embraces and kisses, the two sat down to reminisce about what it was like growing up in the Transylvanian village of Beclean, in what is now Romania.

Up until Sunday, neither of the childhood friends could ever have imagined the other had survived the Holocaust.

Both Levy, 91, and Sheinberg, 88, were deported to the Auschwitz death camp in Poland. At the end of the war, they both made the decision to move to Israel, where they unknowingly lived adjacent to one another in the central Israeli city of Bnei Brak for a short time.

The reunion between the two friends came about by accident when their daughters were introduced through a mutual friend and ended up spending the Sukkot holiday together in Safed. While there, they were surprised to discover that both their mothers had grown up in the same village in what was then Hungary. When the daughters later told their mothers about the other girl who had grown up in Beclean, Levy and Sheinberg immediately recognized the other's name and remembered their childhood friend.
France Awards Top Honours to Nazi Hunters Serge and Beate Klarsfeld
France’s most famous Nazi hunters, Serge Klarsfeld and his German wife Beate, received top honours in a ceremony led by French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday.

Serge Klarsfeld, 83, received the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour, France’s highest award, while the 79-year-old Beate Klarsfeld received the National Order of Merit, having already been decorated with the Legion of Honour in 2014, with the rank of Grand Officer.

The Chief Rabbi of France Haim Korsia was among those who attended the ceremony at the Elysee Palace limited to family and close friends and associates.

Born September 17, 1935, in the Romanian capital Bucharest, Serge Klarsfeld escaped the Holocaust after his family moved to France but saw his father taken away to die in the Auschwitz Nazi concentration camp.

He was naturalised in 1950, and 10 years later, while studying at the prestigious Science-Po university in Paris, Klarsfled met Beate Kuenzel, the daughter of a former German soldier, on a metro platform.

The two, who married three years later, decided to bring fugitive Nazis to justice, a mission they pursued for more than half a century.
During visit to Israel, actor Gerard Butler says 'may decide to stay'
Gerard Butler's irresistible smile and hypnotizing blue eyes can almost convince anyone that he really is capable of saving the world, the way the Scottish actor often does in the movies ("Olympus Has Fallen"; "London Has Fallen") and that's precisely what he does in his latest film, "Hunter Killer," which will hit theaters on October 25.

On the occasion of the Israeli premiere of the film, Butler, 48, has arrived in Israel to attend the glamorous event. This is quite unusual, as Hollywood actors seldom attend premieres in Israel, but the film's Israeli producer, Avi Lerner, may have had a hand in convincing the Hollywood star to come this time.

"It is very challenging to bring an artist of this caliber to Israel," Lerner said. "He only came because I'm Israeli. I asked him to come. This is our sixth movie together, and I'm very pleased that he came."

In the film, which Butler also co-produced, Joe Glass, played by Butler, is the captain of an American submarine on a rescue mission. On the way to rescue a submarine in distress, Glass and his crew come across a Russian coup and must rescue the kidnapped Russian president from rebels who are threatening the world order. The film takes place almost entirely in the submarine.

When asked about the political undertones of the film, which are particularly relevant in the current climate, he says, "I am interested in politics, but I didn't come to Israel to talk about politics."
Jewish Actor William Shatner Talks About Facing a ‘Great Deal’ of Antisemitism as a Child
Jewish Canadian actor William Shatner opened up in a recent interview about being the target of antisemites during his childhood.

The 87-year-old, who is best known for his role as Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek, told The Sydney Morning Herald that he experienced “a great deal” of antisemitism growing up in Montreal, a city that was mostly Catholic. Shatner said the discrimination that he faced for being Jewish was “very difficult” for him to deal with.

“I’m shaped by a lot of battles from six years old up until now,” he explained before revealing the kind of antisemitism he regularly faced. “Fights, every day, with one or more kids my size or bigger. Somebody recently showed me a high school graduation book. There I was — a nice-looking boy — and my nickname was ‘Toughie’ because I was always fighting and being attacked. Kids would all crowd around, yelling, ‘Fight! Fight! Fight!’”

During his time at McGill University in Montreal the antisemitism continued, he told The Sydney Morning Herald. He said, “The university I went to had a quota. How I made it through the quota, I don’t know. There was a limit to the number of Jewish kids who could go to that university, no matter how qualified they were.”


Archaeologists unearth 2000-year-old Hebrew 'Jerusalem' inscription
The earliest written inscription of the word Jerusalem written in Hebrew on a 2,000 year old column drum was unveiled on Tuesday at a press conference at The Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

The limestone column drum that dates back to the Second Temple period, was discovered 10 months ago on an excavation site near the International Convention Center in Jerusalem.

The words: “Hanania son of Dudolos from Jerusalem” was etched on the column which was part of a building that stood in a Jewish potters village near the entrance of the Jerusalem some 2,000 years ago.

Prior to this discovery, the city's name was written as Yerushalem or Shalem in Hebrew, this inscription was the first time the city was written as Yerushalayim in Hebrew characters.

The word Jerusalem was found on silver coins dating before the time of this column, but they were written in Aramaic.

Houston's Zhou Qi played only three minutes Tuesday night before the 7-foot-1 center from China sprained his left knee against the Shanghai Sharks.

Qi, the Rockets' second-round pick in 2016 who played in 18 games last season, was playing in his first preseason game.

He bent over to pick up a loose ball in the lane in the second quarter when Shanghai's Luis Scola crashed into his left knee, bending it sideways.

          Dennis Rodman benched for Yao Ming at Pyongyang friendly?      Cache   Translate Page      

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — Has Dennis Rodman, the former NBA star-turned pal of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, been benched for Chinese hoop legend Yao Ming?

The former Houston Rockets center and eight-time NBA all-star took center court in Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, on Tuesday as Chinese and North Korean basketball players held a friendly match, part of a high-profile sports exchange between the two countries intended to help thaw ties that had been growing chilly over the past year.

Senior ruling party officials turned up for the game, but Kim, who was famously serenaded with the birthday song by Rodman in Pyongyang in January 2014, didn't attend.

On the court, Chinese female basketball players who are visiting Pyongyang this week mixed together with North Korean female players to form two teams, called "Friendship" and "Unity.

          弦理论先驱加来道雄:如果未来人类灭亡,最有可能是这三种原因      Cache   Translate Page      

加来道雄是一名日裔美籍物理学家、未来学家。他毕业于哈佛大学,后在伯克利加州大学获得博士学位。其主要研究方向是弦理论、超对称以及万有理论,并著有许多面向大众的科普书籍。

近日,新闻资讯网站Newatlas对他进行了采访,就科学、新的太空竞赛、人工智能(AI),以及人类面临的最大威胁等话题与他进行了探讨。

加来道雄

以下为采访实录,经编辑略有删改:

身为科学传播者,您似乎随时随地都能不假思索地回答问题——任何问题,不论是神经织网,还是肠道微生物群。面对科学这么一个庞大的领域,您是如何跟进的?

加来道雄这一切的起点,出现在我八岁那年。当时,爱因斯坦刚刚去世,大家都说,他没能完成自己最宏伟的理论——万物理论。

我当时还小,不知道爱因斯坦是谁,却放言要“替他去完成”。到如今,我想我们做到了!我们认为,爱因斯坦求索的万物理论——让他能“读懂上帝心意”的理论——就是弦理论!而我恰好是这个课题的开拓者之一。

我们认为,所有亚原子粒子,都能归结为一根细弦上的震动。这就是万物理论。一部好莱坞电影就叫这个名字,还得了奥斯卡奖。但它没有提到万物理论叫什么,其实,它就是弦理论。

小时候,每周六上午,我都会看《飞侠哥顿》(Flash Gordon)这样的动画片,对火箭飞船、激光剑和怪兽心驰神往。《飞侠哥顿》太讨人喜欢了,其中的大量情节都被乔治·卢卡斯(George Lucas)拿走,变成了后来的《星球大战》。

后来,我渐渐意识到,我的两大爱好其实是统一的。理解了物理学,你就知道哪些是可能的,哪些是不可能的,以及未来几十、几百年,哪些是有望实现的。因此,在我的书中,我采访了世界上最顶尖的300多名科学家,围绕未来20、50、100年的就业、医疗、太空旅行和人工智能,总结出了最切实际的展望。因为,科学是繁荣的引擎。它是繁荣的源头。理解了科学,你就理解了就业市场的未来,医疗的未来,以及经济的未来。

我喜欢探讨科学和未来,因为物理学和科学是上述一切的根本。

假如当下有这么一个人,他想为人类作出尽可能大的贡献,他该投身哪个领域?

加来道雄这个任务可不小!基本上来讲,因为科学是繁荣的引擎,所以,我们周围所有的财富,归根结底都来自科学。如果你想作贡献,那就去从事科学,去理解我们所处的世界,去发明创造,以此改变一切。

比如,身为科学家,我们发明了晶体管,促成了计算机和计算机时代的开启。我们发明了激光,催生了互联网。我们编写了万维网,来追踪亚原子粒子。我们还发明了X光机、电视机、收音机、微波炉、雷达、核磁共振扫描仪……这些都来自物理学家的大脑。

而如今,身为物理学家,我们正在努力创造新一代火箭、新一代人工智能机器人。我们认为,下一批创新将推动社会繁荣,让世界变得更美好。

在您眼中,有没有什么领域是当前的增长型领域?

加来道雄有。放眼科学浪潮,第一股繁荣浪潮来自工业革命和蒸汽机时代。第二股浪潮是托马斯·爱迪生和电的发明,即电气时代。第三股浪潮是高科技、计算机和互联网,即信息时代。

第四股繁荣与创新的浪潮,将由人工智能、纳米技术和生物技术引领。这些将成为未来的引擎。

当然,随着人类进入外太空,太空旅行的成本一年比一年低,人类自身的未来将如何?所以,我也会带你一窥20至50年后的生活。

说到太空旅行,到头来,人类或许能给更广泛的宇宙贡献点什么。对此,您有何见解?

加来道雄首先,恐龙没有太空计划,所以它们没有活到今天,也作不了贡献。6500万年前,当那颗陨星或彗星撞击尤卡坦或墨西哥时,恐龙们毫不知情。它们不知道被什么击中了,也因此彻底灭绝了。

跟恐龙不同的是,人类把控着自己的命运。我们不会重蹈恐龙的覆辙,因为我们有太空航行。我们有能力塑造自己的命运。

一旦成为多行星物种,我们就能贡献自己的一份力了。一次,我有幸采访到了伟大的天文学家卡尔·萨根(Carl Sagan)。我问他,“您此生的目标是什么?”他说,他的目标是为人类成为双行星物种打好基础。

我们需要一份“保险”,他说——我们并不是要把所有人迁到火星,这成本太高了。但我们需要一个火星定居点,有备无患。我们有必要成为双行星物种。

如今,我们有伊隆·马斯克(Elon Musk),一位白手起家的亿万富豪。他正在自掏腰包,研制月球火箭!真不可思议。他创造了猎鹰重型火箭,一枚私人出资建造的火箭,可以送宇航员登月,最终登陆火星。他设想的是,有朝一日,火星上会建立定居点,有100万人生活其中。

我们还有杰夫·贝索斯(Jeff Bezos),全球首富、亚马逊创始人。他正在美国得克萨斯州建立私人太空港,配备他的私人发射台。他将发射可重复使用的旅行火箭,最终,还要把亚马逊送上月球。你能想象这样的场景吗——身在月球,你依然能通过亚马逊买到想要的图书?

所以,真正有远见的人正在自己投资。他们不能干等着美国宇航局(NASA)。他们自掏腰包,因为他们想打开天际,供人类探索。

对新一轮的太空竞赛,大家都激动不已。不过,太空事业成为亿万富豪的个人爱好,这一现象有何利弊?其中不无虚荣心的成分,就好像一个人什么都有了,还能给他什么呢?那就来个太空计划吧!在您看来,相对于政府之间的太空竞赛,太空计划的私人化有何利弊?

加来道雄政府行事谨慎而缓慢,对成本看得没那么重,以至于导致预算失控,引发纳税人不满。1966年,阿波罗太空计划正处在全盛时期,光它一个计划,就占到美国政府全部预算的5%。这是不可持续的。真是难以置信:你每缴1美元的税,就有5美分被投入登月任务。这是不可持续的。

如今,成本降下来了,恰恰是因为亿万富豪们开始自掏腰包,推进这些计划。

马特·达蒙(Matt Damon)主演的《火星救援》(The Martian),你知道吧。这部电影的拍摄成本是1亿美元。而印度送一个探测器上火星,才花了7000万美元。也就是说,去火星的成本,还不及好莱坞一部火星题材的电影。太空飞行的成本降幅之大,由此可见一斑。

正因为硅谷有这些狂人,他们不甘落后,争相研制最低成本的登月火箭,所以,马斯克和贝索斯才会去研制可重复利用的火箭。

这就好比二手车。二手车市场变革了世界各地的汽车保有量。十几岁的年轻人也买得起车了。火箭领域也是一样。因为有硅谷的那几个狂人,我们将拥有可重复使用的火箭,而且,太空旅行的成本将一降再降,有一天,可能我们的父母都可以去外太空。

但其中有没有固有的风险?驱动这一切的,似乎只是几个人的一腔热血——马斯克、贝索斯,以及理查德·布兰森(Richard Branson)和他的维珍银河(Virgin Galactic),要是他们出了什么事,结果会怎么样?

加来道雄这就是依赖私人资本的缺陷之一。但每一种资本来源都有问题。比如,美国联邦政府曾资助航天飞机项目,但它变成了巨大的负担,每次发射成本高达10亿美元。正因为成本失控,纳税人和奥巴马不得不终止航天飞机计划。

这恰好是私人企业的用武之地。私人企业可不愿花那么多钱,用黄金去打造马桶和水龙头。他们要的是实用、高效和及时。

加道来雄3.jpg

NASA将从明年开始发射登月火箭SLS Booster Rocket,每次任务成本10亿美元。马斯克发话了:“什么?换成我,我的成本只是SLS的一个零头,而且,我的火箭能重复使用,别说一次了,一年能飞上好几次。”

太空旅行将因此改变。适度的竞争是好事,因为它让你保持警惕,激励你创造高效能、安全可靠的火箭,为太空旅游铺平道路。

我猜,未来某一天,人们会去月球度蜜月。这个目标并不遥远,因为成本正在直线下降。将1磅的东西(约合450克)送上绕地轨道,成本是1万美元。照此计算,你要去国际空间站,成本就是你的体重乘以金价!未来,这个成本有望降到原先的十分之一。

您有没有报名加入最早一批的太空旅行航班?

加来道雄没有,我是一名科学家。我喜欢提出理论、设计东西、攻克各种潜在的难关。建立火星定居点的事,还是留给空军飞行员吧!

你得很勇敢才行!去月球要飞三天,去火星要飞九个月!第一批去火星的人都将十分勇敢。但我们认为,到2030年,第一批火星定居点应该已经落成;到21世纪后期,永久性的火星基地可能已经成形。

想变成多行星物种,显然是怕地球出事。您认为,人类面临的三种最大的威胁是什么?

加来道雄坦白说吧,太空暂且不提,光是在地球上,我们就面临一些重大问题。而且它们必须在地球上解决。

首先是全球变暖。地球升温是毋庸置疑的。我们必须想方设法把太阳能的成本降下来。一个方法是创造超级电池。我们通常忘了:太阳能电池板的能效并不高,其潜力已经基本被用尽了。

但电池恰恰是太阳能时代的瓶颈所在。如今,因为笔记本电脑、手机用到大量锂电池,人们对电池投入了大量的关注,发明家们正在研发超级电池。

其实,特斯拉汽车的马斯克就说,特斯拉将创造一种超级电池,使电厂在冬夏用电高峰也能尽情发电。因此,能让我们迈入太阳能时代的,其实是电池。

其次要担心的是生物战——病菌被制成武器,或是从实验室逃逸。

第三个要担心的是核扩散。核弹正扩散到地球上最危险的地区——比如中东,比如朝鲜半岛。这些都是极不稳定的地区,哪里不稳定,核弹偏往哪里扩散。这些都是实实在在的危险,需要在地球上加以解决,即便在仰望太空时,也不能置之不理。

这些问题好像都存在三四十年了——至今都没有解决。

加来道雄是啊!不幸中的万幸,冷战算是结束了,我们不用担心俄罗斯和美国两个超级大国的交战,但印度和巴基斯坦呢?那里是一片十分动荡的区域。更不用说朝鲜了,现如今,它已经拥有一个小型核武库。

再看中东:以色列有核武器,伊朗也有!虽然有核协议的约束,但协议失效后,伊朗还是能拥有核弹。只在协议期限内,伊朗才不能碰核弹。15年期限一过,它就能大大方方地组装核武器了。所以,核扩散问题不可小觑。

您提到了人工智能。有些人认为AI威胁到人类生存。您持什么立场?

加来道雄Facebook的马克·扎克伯格(Mark Zuckerberg)说,“瞎说!AI明明会增加就业、促进繁荣和经济活动。前景一片光明。”然后马斯克发话了,“它威胁到人类生存!总有一天,机器人会接管地球的!”

我的态度是,短期内,未来几十年直到本世纪末,扎克伯格是对的。人工智能会让生活更加便利,会提高生活品质,降低生活成本,还会创造新就业……我认为,AI产业会比汽车产业还要大,因为你的汽车会变成机器人。你会跟汽车对话,跟汽车吵架!

但长期而言,我认为马斯克是对的。到本世纪末,机器的聪明程度有望赶上猴子。而猴子是有自我意识的。因此,我们必须安插某种芯片,必要时,用它关闭人工智能,比如当它们产生谋杀念头时。

加道来雄4.jpg

很显然,下一个问题是,当它们变得比人类更聪明时,会怎样?

加来道雄这就讲到22世纪了,届时,凡是人类设置的故障防护,它们或许都能绕过。它们又不傻,总会弄明白的。

到那个时候,我们应该考虑与AI融合。我们何不变身超人?何不拥有不朽、完美的机器身体?何不变成完美的化身?

我想,那是我们最终的走向:我们与我们的创造物融合。我们将变得很美,并且超级强大,不用太空服,就能在月球、在火星生存,因为我们是超人。

如果有一天,外星人在白宫草坪上降落,宣示自己的存在,那时,它们的身体若是一半生物、一半机械,我们也不必大惊小怪。

问题在于,当机器智能超越人类以后,我们对机器而言,还有什么价值?机器凭什么跟我们融合?

加来道雄外星人之所以不搭理我们、始终不肯现身,或许就是这个原因。我的意思是,你去森林,会跟森林里的鹿说话吗?会跟那里的松鼠说话吗?一开始可能会,但过了一会儿,你就提不起兴致了——它们不会回话。于是,你也就不理它们了。外星人也一样。也许,它们曾试图建立联系,但发现人类毫无应答。所以,它们也就作罢了。

给我们几百万年时间去进化,也许我们会有一些新颖的想法?

加来道雄我们大可以绞尽脑汁去猜测,因为我们还没遇到过外星人,但我认为,外星人是存在的。光是人类已经发现的行星,就有几十亿颗。认为我们就是唯一,未免有些愚蠢。

所以,下一次你仰望夜空的时候,要知道,可能上面也有人在看着我们,疑惑地球上有没有生命。

记住,我的书里探讨的是未来,不是科幻。我不是科幻作家,我是一名物理学家。但我有幸对话了300名世界顶尖的科学家,听他们介绍自己的研究,因为,他们正在实验室里创造未来。
