An dieser Stelle berichte ich über die Spiele meines favorisierten Football-Team, den OAKLAND RAIDERS  sowie alle restlichen Ergebnisse der NFL...



Oakland Raiders - Indianapolis Colts 28:42

Eigentlich sollte eine freie Woche einem Team helfen, um verletzungsfreier und optimierter in die nächsten Spiele zu gehen; bei den Oakland Raiders kamen jedoch nur Hiobsbotschaften: Running Back Marshawn Lynch landete auf der Verletztenliste und Wide Receiver Amari Cooper wurde zu den Dallas Cowboys abgegeben. Man kann sagen, dass damit weitere Waffen des Angriffs genommen wurden. So brauchten die Raiders auch das gesamte erste Quarter, ehe sie auf Trab kamen. Bis dahin hatten allerdings die Gäste schon zehn Punkte geholt. Ohne große Gegenwehr marschierte Quarterback Andrew Luck mit seinem Angriff über das Feld und fand abschließend Tight End Mo Alie-Cox über 26 Yard zum Touchdown. Anschließend  legten sie noch ein Field Goal von Kicker Adam Vinatieri aus derselben Entfernung nach. Ein toller Pass von Quarterback Derek Carr über 31 Yard auf Wide Receiver Seth Roberts brachte im zweiten Quarter die ersten Punkte für Oakland. Nun schien der Spielmacher beflügelt und fand im nächsten Drive Tight End Jared Cook über 25 Yard zur 14:10 Führung. Knapp vor der Pause wurde es dann Liga-Historisch: Vinatieri traf ein Field Goal aus 25 Yard und war nun mit 2.547 der Rekordhalter für erzielte Punkte. Im dritten Quarter konnten die Raiders den Aufwind nutzten und marschierten über das Feld. Carr selber überbrückte mit einem Sprung den letzten Yard zu seinem ersten Touchdown und dem 21:13. Nun zeigten die Colts aber die Schwächen der Raiders auf - sie ließen immer wieder 'Big Plays' zu und so fand Luck schließlich Tight End Eric Ebron über 20 Yard und einem Zwei-Punkte-Erhöhung zum Ausgleich. Aber auch Carr kam schnell über das Spielfeld und fand den erst in de Woche engagierten Wide Receiver Brandon LaFell über sechs Yard zum 28:21. Das vierte Quarter sollte aber dann die Entscheidung bringen. Erstmal glichen die Colts aus, als Running Back Marlon Mack die letzten drei Yard überbrückte. Dann hielt die Abwehr die Gäste und Luck jagte seine Mannen erneut zum Touchdown, als er schließlich Tight End Jack Doyle über 10 Yard bediente. Oakland wollte nun den Ausgleich zurück holen, doch bei einem Versuch zu mehr Raumgewinn verlor Running Back Doug Martin den Ball, den Indianapolis in aussichtsreicher Position eroberte. Ruckzuck hatte Mack mit nur noch einem zu überbrückenden Yard die Führung aus 42:28 ausgebaut. Oakland kam zu keinen weiteren Punkten mehr und muss einsehen, dass die Saison mit nun 1-6 gelaufen zu sein scheint. Die Lichtpunkte sind nämlich viel zu wenig!


Tight End Jared Cook punktete für die Raiders...

          Welcome to Los Angeles!      Cache   Translate Page      
Today is election day, apparently a day when Democrats will do better than they did the last time. To celebrate, and perhaps even to cerebrate, we return to that liberal paradise called Los Angeles.

This comes from the Neon Nettle site, which does not merely offer some facts about the outbreak of typhus in Los Angeles and surrounding cities. It also offers some arresting pictures of life in beautiful downtown LA.

The site opens:

If we want to see the blue wave in full effect, we only need to take a look at liberal Los Angeles, where millionaire celebrities lecture the rest of the population from their mansions, surrounded by rat-infested slums.Along with San Francisco, LA has ensured that California is now home to some of the world's filthiest slums, with some areas even rivaling third-world countries such as India and Kenya. Feral cats and rats plague the trash-lined streets causing diseases to spread.Health officials have now warned

The statistics are clear:

Angeles County Department of Public Health has reported that, so far this year, 72 patients have been recorded in central LA, with a further 15 in Long Beach and another 20 in Pasadena. In the 2000s only 20 cases of the disease were recorded per year and analysts are attributing the dramatic rise to the massive 47 percent increase in homelessness since 2012.

Imagine that… since 2012 homelessness in Los Angeles has risen dramatically.

As for the photos, can you believe that this is happening in America?

On 11.05.18 01:14 PM posted by Troy Worden The city of San Francisco spent $310,000 on a new registration system to enable noncitizens to vote in local school board elections, but as of Oct. 28, the effort had produced only 49 new registered voters for the Nov. 6 election. That means the city spent more than $6,326 for every noncitizen it registered, the San Francisco Chronicle (https://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/matier-ross/article/SF-spends-300k-register-noncitizen-voters-how-much-13340917.php?t=1cc71b89e3&f) reported.

          EFF Unveils Virtual Reality Tool To Help People Spot Surveillance Devices in Their Communities       Cache   Translate Page      
Law Enforcement’s Deployment of High-Tech Spying Tools On the Rise

San Francisco—The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) launched a virtual reality (VR) experience on its website today that teaches people how to spot and understand the surveillance technologies police are increasingly using to spy on communities.

“We are living in an age of surveillance, where hard-to-spot cameras capture our faces and our license plates, drones in the sky videotape our streets, and police carry mobile biometric devices to scan people’s fingerprints,” said EFF Senior Investigative Researcher Dave Maass. “We made our ‘Spot the Surveillance’ VR tool to help people recognize these spying technologies around them and understand what their capabilities are."

Spot the Surveillance, which works best with a VR headset but will also work on standard browsers, places users in a 360-degree street scene in San Francisco. In the scene, a young resident is in an encounter with police. Users are challenged to identify surveillance tools by looking around the scene. The experience takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

The surveillance technologies featured in the scene include a body-worn camera, automated license plate readers, a drone, a mobile biometric device, and pan-tilt-zoom cameras. The project draws from years of research gathered by EFF in its Street-Level Surveillance project, which shines a light on how police use, and abuse, technology to spy on communities.

Created by EFF’s engineering and design team, the Stop the Surveillance VR experience can be found at https://eff.org/spot-vr.

“One of our goals at EFF is to experiment with how emerging online technologies can help bring about awareness and change,” said EFF Web Developer Laura Schatzkin, who coded the project. “The issue of ubiquitous police surveillance was a perfect match for virtual reality. We hope that after being immersed in this digital experience users will acquire a new perspective on privacy that will stay with them when they remove the headset and go out into the real world.”

The current version is now being made publicly available for user testing, as part of the Aaron Swartz Day and International Hackathon festivities. EFF will be conducting live demonstrations of the project at the event on Nov. 10-11 at the Internet Archive in San Francisco. Swartz, the brilliant activist and Internet pioneer, was facing a myriad of federal charges for downloading scientific journals when he took his own life in 2013.

EFF seeks user feedback and bug reports, which will be incorporated into an updated version scheduled for release in Spring 2019. The VR project was supported during its development through the XRstudio residency program at Mozilla. The project was also made possible with the support of a 2018 Journalism 360 Challenge grant. Journalism 360 is a global network of storytellers accelerating the understanding and production of immersive journalism. Its founding partners are the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Google News Initiative, and the Online News Association.

Full-time

(San Francisco, CA)

About us

Kiva (www.kiva.org) is an innovative non-profit focused on connecting people through lending to alleviate poverty and create opportunity. We run a global marketplace platform for crowdfunded microloans that serves the financially excluded. Our organization combines the culture and technological passion of an internet start-up with the compassion and empathy of a non-profit to address poverty at global scale. We aim to drive social impact and enable opportunity while providing a borrower-to-lender connection: “Loans that change lives.” In just 13 years, we have raised more than $1.1 billion in loan capital for 2.7 million borrowers in 83 countries. Our lenders fund over $10 million in loans every month. With offices in San Francisco, Portland, New York, Nairobi, and Bangkok, Kiva's team includes 100+ employees and 400+ volunteers worldwide.

About this role

At Kiva, we’re broadening our focus and building new products that will create economic opportunity and expand financial inclusion across the globe. We recognize the importance of strong design in driving the success of these new initiatives, and are investing in a skilled team that will have a high degree of ownership around Kiva’s future impact.

As a Senior Product Designer, you will be involved in all aspects of the product development process—from brainstorming the next big idea, to creating the vision for new features, to tweaking pixels right before launch. We’re looking for someone who can pitch in on a wide range of design issues—product, user experience, interaction, visual, copywriting, illustration, storytelling—whatever it takes to ship the ultimate user experience to the people we want to reach. You’ll thrive in this role if you are constantly curious, think deeply, speak clearly, and embrace collaboration and feedback.

This is a full-time position located in either San Francisco, CA or Portland, OR. At this time, we can only consider applicants with authorization to work in the United States on a permanent, full-time basis; unfortunately we cannot provide visa sponsorship.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Partner with product managers, engineers, and other stakeholders to design user experiences from conception to launch.
  • Participate in concept development and design ideation with product managers and designers to define product direction.
  • Lead and participate in cross-functional brainstorms, discussions, and design reviews.
  • Prototype and present ideas ranging from rough whiteboard sketches to wireframes to high-fidelity interactive prototypes.
  • Partner with engineering to ensure a high-quality implementation and user experience.
  • Lead broader design initiatives, such as improving or extending the design system or product development practices.

What we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years experience designing best-of-class digital products—consumer products, nonprofit, and/or financial services—ideally in-house.
  • Experience across the full product development spectrum: from ideation and strategy to implementation (with pixel level detail). You’ve gotta be able to fly high and fly low.
  • Demonstrated ability to build successful relationships across design, engineering, product, and marketing.
  • Strong customer focus: ability to conduct user research and translate insights from customer interviews, usability tests and site metrics into actionable design solutions.
  • Excellent verbal, written, and visual communication skills; willing to provide and receive constructive feedback as a part of the creative process.

What we offer:

  • An amazing mission: Kiva’s mission is to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty across the globe
  • An opportunity to improve real lives, solve hard problems, and change the world
  • Friendly, supportive, and adventurous environment with a team of engaged colleagues
  • Casual, but high performing work environment
  • A comprehensive, industry-leading benefits package
  • Opportunities to connect with and learn from colleagues and partners around the world

A diverse and inclusive workplace where we learn from each other is an integral part of Kiva's culture. We actively welcome people of different backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives. We are an equal opportunity employer and a great place to work. Join us and help us achieve our mission!

We will only accept applications directly from candidates. Kiva will not be responsible for any recruiting agency fees, absent a formal agreement.

Can the Reluctant Metropolis Embrace Enthusiasm for the Future?
November 5, 2018

On October 30, 2018, outgoing SPUR CEO and President Gabriel Metcalf gave his final public address at the Silver SPUR Awards, our annual celebration of civic achievement. A shortened version of this speech appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle.


I want to share some reflections about where the Bay Area has been and where we are now and where we’re going as a region. To sketch out where we’ve been, I looked up what was happening in 1997, the year I started at SPUR. It was the year that the first Harry Potter book was published, Steve Jobs returned to Apple, Bill Clinton was in his fifth year as president and Willie Brown was in his second year as mayor of San Francisco. We were on the cusp of a lot of big changes then, but the way history works, you don’t always know what’s right around the corner. 

We didn’t know that same-sex marriage would soon be legal or that Burning Man would still be going 20 years later. We didn’t know we were in the middle of something that would later be called the dot-com boom, closely followed by the dot-com bust. We told ourselves, “This city has always been a place of boom and bust, maybe things will go back to normal,” and we went back to worrying about the future of our economy.

But underneath the drama of the up-and-down of the business cycle, the economy of San Francisco and the economy of Silicon Valley were merging. The Bay Area was becoming a single integrated economic unit, and, in one of history’s great ironies, this most anti-capitalist of U.S. cities would become a true center of capitalism. 

It soon became clear that the contrast between this growing, increasingly integrated regional economy and the hyper-localized, hyper-fragmented system for planning and governance was going to cause serious problems. We’ve been the reluctant metropolis.

Today, the Bay Area is the most important center of economic innovation in the world — and yet this is a place that has been very ambivalent about growing. It’s a place that has not been willing to add housing or transit in proportion to the jobs it’s added. As we’ve scaled up the economy, we have not scaled up the urbanism to match — and that divergence is the essence of our planning problem.

On the housing side, we have had a hard time welcoming new people to be here. That is the dark side of Bay Area liberalism: We believe in immigration in theory, but in practice we are not willing to allow new buildings in our communities so that actual people have an actual place to live. Because of the choices we have made to protect neighborhood character, every person who comes here pushes out someone who was here already. 

The same story plays out with transit. The Bay Area has grown too big to function with so many people driving, but we have not been willing to invest in new transit at anywhere near the necessary levels.

So it’s no mystery why housing costs so much, no mystery why it’s hard to get around. Those are the choices we have made.

The only way out of this is to stop being the reluctant metropolis and to become the enthusiastic metropolis — to move with energy and commitment to scale up the urban systems of the Bay Area. I’m not saying this is our only problem, but all the other things we need to do in the domains of economic inclusion and governance and culture are going to be so much more possible if we become the enthusiastic metropolis.

This is why SPUR has put so much emphasis on helping people to imagine what this future metropolis could look like:

A place that will have room for the people who are here now as well as for immigrants.

A place with economic opportunity for everyone, no matter where they started out.

A place that is not just diverse — because that is simply a fact about the Bay Area — but a place that is putting its creative energy and wealth into the problem of how to build a truly inclusive society.

Such a place will have a truly great transit system, like some of us experience when we go to London or Paris or Tokyo, and roadways that offer livability by making it safe to bicycle everywhere, like we see in the great European cities. 

We have taken some steps toward such a place. Over the last 20 years, SPUR has done some things of which I am quite proud:

We’ve worked on transit expansions.

We’ve gone under the hood to improve the inner workings of public agencies.

We’ve worked to upgrade buildings to survive earthquakes and re-planned our shorelines to survive climate change.

We’ve promoted ballot measures in public and mediated conflicts in private. 

But what matters even more is that on some of the biggest issues we’ve changed the way people think. We’ve helped people imagine how an urbanized region could work, how it could succeed at solving the problems we face.

These days it’s easy to tell stories about the future that are apocalyptic, whether about climate change or about our country. It’s harder to tell stories that show how things could work out the right way. But that’s what we need to do: We need to be able to tell stories that show a path from where we are to where we want to be.

We are going to be tested in the time ahead, the way certain generations before us were tested. As I read my American history, I have sometimes wondered what role I would have played in the struggles, in the inflection points of our past:

Before the Civil War, would I have had the courage to be an abolitionist?

During the Depression would I have had the courage to be a labor organizer?

In the 1950s and 1960s, would I have had the courage to be part of the civil rights movement?

Well, we are all getting our chance to find out what role we want to play in this inflection point. We will be tested.

So many of the conversations we are having with our friends, with our families, have to do with the question of hope: how to be hopeful while still being realistic in a time like this. We know the opposite — falling into despair or being naïve about what’s happening with the world — are not good. But it’s so hard to find a way to authentically hold both the hope and the realism.

The answer is that from any one moment in time there are different paths that are possible, different futures that could emerge.

What we’re called on to do right now is to be realistic about what is happening today, to see the multiple possibilities for the future and at the same time to call on America to live up to its ideals. That’s how we can hold on to a hopeful vision no matter what is happening in the short run.

What has motivated me during my time in this role is that I believe that San Francisco and the Bay Area have a mission within the United States. For me, the story of this region and the story of our country are very connected. The Bay Area’s role is to be:

A haven for people fleeing oppression

A place of opportunity for people seeking to better their economic condition

A model that helps America rediscover the lost art of city-building

In short, the Bay Area is supposed to help America become its best self. The work we do here — the work that you all will continue — matters for us and for the story of our country. 

Serving as the head of SPUR has been the greatest honor of my life. Thank you for making everything we have done possible and for staying with this amazing organization as it leads the Bay Area into the future.

          Voting yes on housing justice in California      Cache   Translate Page      

Julien Ball writes from San Francisco on the importance of a ballot measure that, if passed, would help to counter the corporate landlords and their gentrification plans.

CALIFORNIA VOTERS have a chance on Election Day to pass a ballot measure, known as Proposition 10, that would restore the right of cities to pass strong rent control.

Martha Simmons’ story illustrates why it would be an important victory for housing justice if Prop 10 passes.

Martha is one of the millions of California renters who have been negatively affected by the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act of 1995 — the state law restricting local authorities from implementing rent control, which Proposition 10 would repeal if it passes.

Martha grew up in San Francisco’s Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood, and her family has roots in the historically working-class, African American area for several generations. Thus, in 2005, she was happy to move into a home on Ingerson and 3rd Street that was big enough for her large, multigenerational, tight-knit family.

The rent, $3,300 per month, wasn’t cheap, but by working long hours at her job as front-desk security at a downtown building, Martha found that she could afford it and even begin to save money. The landlord, Dorothy Banks, never made repairs, but Martha put up with that because Banks promised her that when she sold the home, Martha could buy it.

She continued to make the repairs that she could out-of-pocket to keep the home in good condition. At one point, the septic tank flooded the unit where Martha’s sister lived, rendering it uninhabitable. Martha’s sister suffered severe health problems before eventually moving out.

Despite all this, Martha continued to work to make the rent on time and put some money aside to buy the home one day. But that was before San Francisco’s real estate market exploded.

When Banks decided to sell, instead of accepting Simmons’ $650,000 offer on the home, she raised the rent, first to $4,700 a month, and then to $5,200, in the hopes she could drive the family out and sell the home empty, getting more money for it.

Simmons desperately scrambled to make ends meet, working three jobs, sleeping just a few hours a night and cashing out her 401(k) retirement fund to make the payments on time. But when even that wasn’t enough, she was faced with an eviction notice for nonpayment of rent.

She joined the community group Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) to help organize rallies and protests, but nothing succeeded in getting Banks to reconsider.

Martha and her family finally realized their dream of home ownership, but only by moving to Oakley, on the outskirts of the Bay Area, more than 50 miles from their former home — joining the legions of working people and people of color who have been displaced from San Francisco and other California cities due to evictions and rising rents.


WHAT HAPPENED to Martha and her family is perfectly legal because of a state law called Costa-Hawkins that, among other restrictions, bans cities from covering single-family homes like hers under rent control laws.

Martha is supporting Prop 10, which would repeal Costa-Hawkins, in the hopes that others will be spared what she suffered. “It’s stressful to have one foot in the door and one foot in the street,” says Martha. “No human being should have to go through what we went through. It’s disturbing to know so many people are going through the same thing.”

Costa-Hawkins — named after its legislative sponsors Democratic state Sen. Jim Costa and Republican State Assembly member Phil Hawkins — was a bipartisan bill passed by the legislature over two decades ago at the behest of the real estate industry.

The law bans cities from passing strong rent control in several ways:

First, it bans cities from covering single-family homes or condos under rent control.

Second, it stops cities from applying permitted rent control regulations to so-called “new construction,” defined as any construction after the 1995 passage of the law. Cities that already have rent control are barred from extending rent control to buildings constructed after those cities passed their ordinances. In San Francisco, that date is 1979, and in Los Angeles, it is 1978.

Finally, it bans vacancy control — a type of rent control that restricts rent increases in between tenants. So when a tenant leaves, landlords can charge as much as they want to the next tenant.

In a city like San Francisco, a market with large numbers of higher-income earners, lack of rent control between tenancies creates a huge incentive for landlords to evict low-rent tenants so they can bring in tenants who can afford market rate. In San Francisco, that median rate was $3,253 per month for a one-bedroom apartment in 2017, according to the real estate website Curbed.

Lack of vacancy control, coupled with the ban on rent control for any so-called “new construction” means the sometimes gradual and sometimes rapid loss of affordable, rent-controlled apartments, with no way to replace them. That, combined with the decades-long, federal divestment from affordable and public housing, has amounted to a deliberate, bipartisan attack on our ability to solve the affordability crisis.


REPEAL OF Costa-Hawkins has long been at the top on the wish list for California tenants’ rights groups struggling to deal with the affordability crisis, but only recently have they considered it possible.

While cities like San Francisco have established nonprofit organizations advocating for tenants’ rights, in other cities, volunteer-led groups have more recently formed to organize tenants and press for local rent control ordinances.

The Los Angeles Tenants Union has organized rent strikes. In several cities, ACCE successfully organized tenants’ chapters to take on corporate landlords like the Blackstone Group, which bought thousands of single-family homes and raised the rent. And since 2015, the Bay Area cities of Richmond and Mountain View have passed the first local rent control ordinances in California in decades.

Earlier this year, groups around the state organized to push for AB 1506, legislation that would have repealed Costa-Hawkins. The San Francisco-based Anti-Displacement Coalition organized protests to get State Assembly member David Chiu, one of the sponsors, to bring the bill to his committee for a vote.

When a committee hearing finally took place in January, hundreds of tenants and their supporters from around the state packed the room, along with landlords organized by real estate front groups.

When the Democratic-led Assembly failed to move the bill out of committee, Los Angeles-based groups such as the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, ACCE and the Eviction Defense Network began collecting signatures to put Proposition 10 on the ballot.


PROP 10 is facing an uphill battle. State and national real estate groups have spent a whopping $77.5 million on misleading ads to convince voters that the referendum is bad for renters.

A number of Wall Street developers and real estate investment trusts like Blackstone Group, its subsidiary Invitation Homes, Essex Property Trust, Equity Residential and AvalonBay Communities — with portfolios of tens of thousands of California homes between them — each donated $3 million or more to defeat the initiative.

These corporations know that passing statewide restrictions on local control is one of the most effective weapons in their arsenal — and that if Prop 10 passes, groups in the 32 states that currently have an outright ban on rent control could decide to take matters into their own hands and repeal those restrictions, too.

Passage of Prop 10 would be only the first step in winning the kind of rent control needed to address the affordability crisis. Once Costa-Hawkins restrictions are lifted, it will be up to cities to pass the rent control they need to address the crisis. Local political leaders of both parties rely on real estate developers and real estate industry groups for campaign donations, and industry lobbyists often enjoy almost unfettered access to politicians.

Working people and tenants will have to build movements with the necessary size, organization and social power to stop evictions, beat back rent increases and force politicians to pass local laws that prioritize them over real estate industry profits.

But voting “yes” on Proposition 10 is crucial to widening the scope for what victories are possible for the housing movement in the years to come.


          A united fight against Cal      Cache   Translate Page      

Frank Jones reports on a three-day strike in October by University of California workers, who are winning increasing support from UC students.

“They want service workers to be even lower, allthough it’s already the lowest level of employment. But we are the most important workers in the university. If there’s nobody cleaning the surgery rooms, patients are at risk. If we don’t cook meals, students cannot live here nor can they have classes. We maintain the medical centers, the therapy places, we are the spine (the center pillar) of this university. We demand respect.”
— Maricruz Manzanarez, UC Berkeley lead custodian and AFSCME 3299

SOME 24,000 members of AFSCME Local 3299 and 11,000 workers represented by University Professional and Technical Employees (UPTE) Local 9119 launched a second three-day strike against the University of California (UC) system last month, following a similar job action in May.

As a show of solidarity, many graduate student workers in UAW Local 2865 canceled or moved classes off-campus. Some UC librarians and members of the University Council-American Federation of Teachers (UC-AFT), who held their own protest a week earlier, also refused to cross pickets.

The strike started at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, October 23. At UC Berkeley (UCB), 200 pickets gathered at the corner of Bancroft and Telegraph. AFSCME and UPTE picketers and supporters marched through the student gym and rec center, the Tang health center and on to a dining hall where excited picketers turned back two scab food deliveries.

Student solidarity pickets went up at Sather Gate. On Wednesday, 150 UPTE workers kept the Bancroft and Telegraph university picket going while most workers attended an inspiring 1,000-person rally at the UC San Francisco (UCSF) picket line, where they were joined by striking Marriott hotel workers. Jovanka Beckles, a DSA-endorsed candidate running as a Democrat for California State Assembly, visited the picket line Thursday.

Local 3299 is demanding annual cost of living increases of 5.5 percent to deal with California’s rapidly rising cost of living, as well as a freeze on health care premiums and copays. UC is only offering 2 percent raises and no limits on premium increases and co-pays.

The union is also looking to stop the contracting out of union jobs, to guarantee overtime pay for daily overtime work, and to limit parking cost increases to under 2 percent, while the university wants to remove combined severance and recall rights for laid-off employees, pay overtime only when workers exceed 40 hours in a week, and retain the right to jack up parking costs.

“There is more than enough money in California that can pay for their contract and improve education,” said Wendell, a lead janitor at UC Berkeley. “It’s ridiculous that the chancellors and regents make more than several workers’ salaries combined.”

Manzanarez made the case for why the strike was necessary:

Now we don’t have a contract and the university proposal conveys benefits cuts and a meager salary. They also want to change our pensions, convert them to 401k, which means it’s a lottery. It’s betting our retirements to the well-being of companies, and if there is bad luck, as in 2009 to lose it assuming the losses of capitalism... The premiums for health care are increased...They want to give us a 3 percent raise, but parking increases 10 percent and health care increases between $25 and $30.


THIS PAST strike saw an increase in student solidarity compared to the strike in May. A week before the strike began, students formed a solidarity committee, which publicized the strike through leaflets and held down pickets.

The UC Berkeley chapter of the International Socialist Organization (ISO), the Young Democratic Socialists of America (YDSA) and independent solidarity activists provided the initial impetus for the committee, which started out by flyering the campus about the strike.

On the first day of the strike, the committee picketed Sather Gate, the main gateway to campus. The next day on Wednesday, a couple dozen students formed a solidarity picket that shut down the Golden Bear Café.

“Golden Bear Café is a very popular cafe on campus where people can get food and coffee and even buy books,” explained KT, a UCB undergrad and ISO member, “and so by picketing them today we are preventing them from making a lot of money. AFSCME workers work here and they’ve walked off the job and so we’re trying to show solidarity by strengthening their strike and trying to bring down the university.”

“The closest thing that I’ve done to this was last weekend with the Marriott strike, which was essentially the same thing, being out and showing solidarity so that people can actually get living wages and be able to live their lives,” said Nedra, an undergraduate at nearby Mills College.

“It’s important because we need to make sure that more people know that this is going on, and so the more people that come out the more attention this is going to get and it’s going to be in people’s faces.”

Importantly, the Cal Black Student Union (BSU) decided not to hold an event at the café after being contacted by the student solidarity committee.

The structural racism at the UC is an argument for ongoing solidarity: just 3 percent of UCB students are African Americans, who make up 7 percent of California’s total population. Latinx/Chicanx folks make up just 14 percent of undergraduates but are 38 percent of the state.

These numbers mirror the racist pay practices at UC, where Black and Latinx AFSCME workers make 20 percent less starting wage than white workers. Outsourced workers make even less, and while there is not official data on the demographics of these employees, 96 percent of respondents to AFSCME’s contractor survey were people of color.

During the first three-day strike in May, it seemed that job actions between Local 3299 and graduate student workers in UAW Local 2865 might coincide. The graduate workers ratified their contract in August, however, and the administration sent out letters in October warning Local 2865 members to continue classes as normal.

UAW leadership informed their members that they have a legal right to respect picket lines as “individuals” but said that the union couldn’t legally organize its members to do so. The strength of the rank-and-file graduate student network needed to collectively organize “individual” acts of solidarity is uneven, and therefore so was strike support.

Some departments like Sociology showed almost complete solidarity, with members canceling classes or teaching off campus, but that wasn’t the case for many other departments.

With more advance planning, the solidarity committee could be a part of organizing more class cancellations, basic strike education, strike fund and picket support. The student solidarity committee plans to keep meeting in case the administration refuses to negotiate fairly.


THE UNIVERSITY hasn’t moved on the union’s major demands since May, and if management continues to hold out after the October strike, it will raise important questions for UC workers about next steps. Some are already feeling frustrated.

“Co-workers are not feeling too good about the strike,” said Sylvia Heredeia. “They feel like they are just management’s toy, given that this is the second strike and there are still no contracts in place. The strike should be longer until they actually get the contract...People are also beholden to other obligations (bills, family, etc.) so it is a tough call as to what is possible.”

Most picketers who spoke to Socialist Worker wanted to disrupt the university for longer than three days if necessary. Like Heredeia, however, all were concerned with the hardship this would mean for their co-workers.

Local 3299 President Kathryn Lybarger explained to Socialist Worker last week that short strikes in the hospital sector can be very disruptive, but not all the bargaining units are striking medical facilities.

As UC workers figure out their next steps, students should continue to organize labor solidarity, not only to help win social and economic justice for AFSCME and UPTE workers, but also to give their fellow students lessons in how the university is run according to the logic of capitalism, and how we can come together to fight for different priorities. UCB undergrad and YDSA member Aleah put it well on the Golden Bear Café picket line:

When the university is simultaneously trying to increase class sizes and increase tuition, while they are decreasing wages and cutting benefits, those are two sides of the same coin — the greed and corruption of the leaders of our universities. So the regents and the chancellors have demonstrated their absolute unwillingness to recognize the value of putting people over profit.

When we fight for workers’ rights, we are pushing back against that in a way that supports us fighting for our own issues, decreasing tuition, eliminating tuition, getting the educations that we deserve. I want to be at a university where I’m getting the education that I deserve and the people who work here are getting the wages, the conditions and the livelihoods that they deserve.

          Event: Domestic, Houses & Landscapes. Selections from the work of Catherine Opie      Cache   Translate Page      
Event Date: Nov 19, 2018 - Jan 11, 2019; Event City: Princeton, NJ, US

This exhibition at Princeton School of Architecture brings together two of Catherine Opie’s series of photographs, Domestic and Houses and Landscapes, in order to tease out the ways in which personal identity is constructed through the spaces we inhabit as well as the façades we present to the public. For her Domesticseries, Opie traveled across the United States in an RV on a two-month road trip, photographing lesbian couples and families in their home environments. Focused on the idea of community and how communities are formed and identified, Opie has explained that it is the "individual ...within the construct of a community" that she is examining. Conversely, Opie explores how identity is carefully choreographed through her 8”x 10” handmade camera in Houses and Landscapes. This series documents the “regency style” façades of million-dollar estates in Beverly Hills and Bel Air with their enormous doors, security placards, daunting gates, and odd architectural follies that originated in Southern California, which later became rampant throughout America. From different points of view, Domestic, Houses and Landscapes considers how the personal and its appearance are intertwined and indistinguishable.

Catherine Opie is a Los Angeles-based artist. She has received numerous awards and fellowships, including the Citibank Private Bank Emerging Artist Award, Washington University Freund Fellowship, CalArts Herb Alpert Award in the Arts, Larry Aldrich Award, San Francisco Art Institute President's Award for Excellence, and United States Artist Fellowship. She has been a professor of photography at UCLA since 2001 and her work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan, including a mid-career survey at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2008. Her most recent series and film The Modernist is currently on exhibit at the Lehmann Maupin Gallery in New York until January 17, 2019.

          'I gotta take a knee like I'm Colin': Brands like Sprite and IBM are wading into politically charged advertising with the help of digital publisher Attn:      Cache   Translate Page      

Sprite Attn: adAttn:

  • The digital media company Attn: has made ads for IBM, Freeform, and Everytown for Gun Safety in recent weeks ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections.
  • Some of the ads have the company's logo, but the publisher is also experimenting with white-label content for brands like Sprite.
  • Taking a stand can backfire for brands — think Pepsi and Starbucks — but Attn: says its advocacy background can help brands find the right messaging.

Sprite's newest ad campaign is less a commercial than a public service announcement to vote.

The campaign, called "Get Vocal," encourages people to record and upload a video of themselves freestyling about an issue they care about. Clips are then pulled into a microsite and distributed through social media.

Some of the user-uploaded videos wade heavily into political territory.

"Police killing all my people, yeah they wildin' / So I gotta take a knee like I'm Colin," Izze the Producer raps, referring to Colin Kaepernick, the NFL quarterback who last year started kneeling during the national anthem before games to protest racial inequality and police brutality.

Another video uploaded by J. Latelle starts with "We got a president who always lies to us."

It's the kind of work that a few years ago may have been deemed too risky for brands to weigh in on. But as they increasingly wade into political issues, brands like Sprite and others are hoping to connect with younger consumers.

Behind the scenes of the campaign is Attn:, a digital publisher that has used its roots in civic engagement and its massive audience of these younger consumers to crank out a handful of voting- and cause-related campaigns for brands leading up to the midterm elections on Tuesday.

Read more: Here's how startup Attn: averages a whopping 3.8 million views per video on Facebook

"Being apolitical or non-issue-driven is no longer an option with millennial and Gen Z consumers," Attn: CEO Matthew Segal told Business Insider. "Brands now know that they need to take a position or stand for something — or at the very least stand for civic engagement in the year 2018."

Brands are pushing people to the polls

Several brands have dived into hot-button issues over the past few years, and some have been more successful (like Nike and Patagonia) than others (like Starbucks and Pepsi).

colin kaepernick nike billboard san francisco union square 4Katie Canales/Business Insider

Ahead of the midterms, a coalition of 150 companies has poured money into encouraging consumers to vote and tweaking policies to allow employees time off to vote.

Brands are trying to make sense of what they should say

Attn: created the microsite for Sprite's campaign and stitched together some of the clips into videos being distributed on the brand's social channels. VFiles, a fashion-geared social-media platform, sourced some of the talent for the campaign.

Attn: is also promoting Sprite's campaign with videos on its Facebook page.

In addition to Sprite, Attn: has also worked with IBM, Freeform, and Everytown for Gun Safety on voting-related campaigns over the past few months.

Similar to its editorial content, Attn:'s branded content aims to break down complex issues into easy-to-understand videos. Before founding the company, Segal ran the voter-empowerment organization Our Time.

For IBM, Attn: created a two-minute Facebook clip titled "Why Your Vote May Be at Risk This November" to explain misinformation and voting schemes. 

And for Freeform, the two media companies used their talent to create a series of PSAs, airing on TV and social media, that focus on the statistic that the average voter waited in line for 11 minutes to vote in the 2016 presidential election, comparing it with the amount of time people spend on things like scrolling through Instagram. 

Attn: is making white-label content for brands

The Freeform and IBM campaigns use Attn:'s audience for distribution.

But the Sprite campaign is a bit different. Attn:'s logo isn't splashed on the videos, nor is it distributed across the publisher's network of social platforms. It's an example of white-label work that the publisher is taking on for brands and is based on insights instead of reliant on its audience.

"A lot of our partners obviously want our audience and distribution, but I think we have a lot of value to add that can certainly rival some ad agencies, so to speak," Segal said. "I think brands not only know that we know how to produce spots for social media, but also know that we have a finger on the pulse on how young people feel and how to best make these topics digestible."

Taryn Crouthers, the head of brand partnerships at Attn:, said that about half of the company's work with brands on corporate-social-responsibility campaigns came from brainstorming together, as opposed to issuing requests for proposals.

"Brands are coming to Attn: because they value the fact that we understand how to talk and speak about these complex issues in a way that's both entertaining but also informative," she said.

Attn: is also paying to make its own voting-themed editorial content, including videos with former President Barack Obama and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Marc Benioff Elon Musk

  • On Tuesday, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff took to Twitter to invoke the help of Elon Musk. 
  • Benioff asked Musk if his Boring Company could come to San Francisco and help improve the city's transportation system. 
  • The Boring Company (a subsidiary of SpaceX) has created its first "test tunnel" under the streets of Los Angeles to help prove out its tunnel system, meant to alleviate city traffic. 
  • Musk nonchalantly agreed to Benioff's request. 

Before votes could even be counted on Tuesday in San Francisco for the highly debated Proposition C — which would tax the city's largest corporations to provide more funding to homeless services the measure's number one backer, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, was already on to the next issue: transportation. 

This time, however, instead of personally spending over $2 million to support a ballot measure, he took to Twitter and invoked the help of none other than Elon Musk. 

The tweet was a reply to the video Musk posted last Saturday, showing off the tunnel that The Boring Company (a subsidiary of Musk's SpaceX) had created under the streets of Los Angeles. The project is the company's "test tunnel," used to demonstrate how its "pod" vehicles and "lifts" will work.

The Boring Company's overall purpose is to create alternative modes of transportation to help reduce city traffic.

A little over an hour after Benioff's request to have the Boring Company build similar tunnels throughout the Bay Area — and even one that extended over 350 miles south to Los Angeles — Elon agreed, nonchalantly. 

The Boring Company did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment. 

In 2008, California voters passed Proposition 1A which earmarked $9 billion to initiate construction on a high-speed rail system that would connect San Francisco to Los Angeles. Construction for that project has already begun

          I got to try the world's first foldable smartphone — but it feels more like a gimmick than a truly useful device      Cache   Translate Page      

Royole's FlexPai foldable smartphone

  • Startup display maker Royole on Monday showed off its new foldable flexible screen gadget, getting out ahead of Samsung.
  • When folded in half, the device can function as two different smartphones.
  • When unfolded, it can act like a tablet.
  • Its flexible screen is cool, but feels more like a gimmick than a useful feature.

I just got to put my hands on what's supposed to be the future of smartphones.

My first impression: The future still needs some work.

The ostensible gadget of tomorrow is a foldable phone with a flexible screen. Samsung is widely expected to unveil its idea for just such a device at a conference on Wednesday. But it was beaten to the punch Monday night by Royole, a startup display and device maker.

Royole CEO Bill Liu with some devices that use the company's flexible OLED displays, as seen in San Francisco on August, 22, 2018.At a small press event, company CEO Bill Liu showed off the FlexPai, which he dubbed the world's first commercially available flexible screen foldable phone. The device, when folded, looks something like a small notebook with a wraparound screen. When opened, it looks like a small tablet.

"We've been working on this a long time," Liu told Business Insider.

Royole designed the FlexPai to address two significant shortcomings of traditional smartphones — their screens are fragile, and they're not really big enough for many tasks, such as watching movies or editing documents.

Unlike nearly all smartphones, the FlexPai screen isn't encased in glass. Its display is an OLED screen that's printed on a thin plastic material. The screen is scratch resistant and, because it doesn't use any glass, it's shatter-proof. It can be bent 200,000 times without breaking, Liu said.

"It's a significant breakthrough," he said. He continued: "Say goodbye to broken screens."

The FlexPai can act as a phone or a tablet

The FlexPai has a hinge in its middle that allows you to fold it to the point where its two ends touch or unfold it to a 180-degree angle. The hinge is stiff enough that it will maintain any angle in between those two points. So, one thing you can do with it is to fold it part-way to form an "A" shape and have it stand up on its two ends.

The device runs a custom version of Android that Royole calls Water OS that it designed specifically for the FlexPai's flexible screen. One thing it allows you to do is to show a different video on each side of the device's screen when its folded, so you and a friend could potentially watch two different things at the same time.

Read this: This Stanford grad's startup can make screens that are thinner than a sheet of copy paper — and he's gearing up to take on Samsung and LG in the display market

The FlexPai supports dual SIM cards. When it's folded in half, you can use the screens on the front and back as, essentially, two different phones, each associated with a different SIM.

Royole's FlexPai foldable smartphone, folded in halfBut the flexible screen is perhaps most useful when you actually unfold it and you can see the full 7.8" display in its entirety. In that configuration, it's almost the exact size as the iPad mini. It's only slightly heavier and thicker.

So, basically, the FlexPai is a miniature tablet that actually fits in your pocket. It will allow users to save money and weight, because they won't need as many devices, Liu said.

You'll need "less and less devices to get the same user experience," he said.

Royole is already mass producing the device and taking preorders for it. It plans to start shipping it at the end of December.

The gadget is pricey and clunky

But you may want to wait before you buy one.

For one thing, the device is expensive. It starts at $1,318 for a version with 128 gigabytes of storage. If you want the 256-gigabyte version, it will set you back $1,469. That's more than the priciest iPhone XS Max — and that model comes with 512 gigabytes of storage.

For another, Royole doesn't yet have any U.S. carrier partners and isn't really selling the FlexPai to consumers here. Right now, it's targeting consumers in China instead.

Royole's FlexPai smartphone, unfoldedBut the gadget has more fundamental problems. It feels like a first-generation device. Although it's small and thin for a tablet, it feels big and clunky when folded in half. That's because it doesn't fold down flat. Instead it has a relatively thick bulge at its hinge. That could be annoying if you're trying to carry it around in your pocket.

Right before Apple introduced that iPad, I met with a small Silicon Valley company that showed off one of the first modern touchscreen tablets. I had been skeptical about tablets before then, but after seeing device — even in its rough shape — it was immediately clear why someone would want a gadget like it.

I was hoping to have the same experience with the FlexPai. I've been excited about the coming era of flexible screen devices since the first time I saw a demo of such a display around a decade or so ago. The idea of having a large screen device that you can fit in your pocket or roll up into a pen-like tube is really appealing in theory.

It feels like a gimmick

But right now, this flexible screen device feels more like a gimmick than a vision of the future.

I didn't really get to test the device, so I can't say how it performs or what it's like to use on a daily basis. But I'm dubious that in practice its flexible screen feature is really that compelling. Other companies have tried dual-screen phones, and they've never really caught on with consumers. I'm skeptical that people are going to like the trade off of having a thicker gadget in their pocket.

Sure, its larger screen can offer a better movie-watching experience. But the display still isn't big enough for the device to replace a laptop or a full-sized tablet. You're not going to want to edit documents or do other work on that sized screen.

Solving the problem of fragile screens is an important advance. But not at a $1,300 price point.

It was cool to see the FlexPai in person. I'm just hoping that future foldable devices do a better job of living up to the hype.

CAND

Ngày 5-11-2018, Thượng tướng Lê Quý Vương thay mặt Ban Thường vụ Đảng ủy Công an Trung ương đã ký văn bản gửi Đảng đoàn Quốc hội, kiến nghị về một số đánh giá chưa chính xác của đại biểu Lưu Bình Nhưỡng liên quan đến hoạt động điều tra, xử lý tội phạm gây dư luận không tốt.
Văn bản nêu rõ: Phiên chất vấn và trả lời chất vấn tại Kỳ họp thứ 6, Quốc hội khóa XIV vừa qua được tiến hành với nhiều đổi mới về nội dung và hình thức, được đồng bào, cử tri cả nước, trong đó có cử tri trong lực lượng CAND đặc biệt quan tâm theo dõi và đánh giá cao. Hầu hết các đại biểu Quốc hội đã có những đánh giá thẳng thắn, khách quan về các vấn đề chất vấn, trong đó có các nội dung liên quan đến trách nhiệm của lực lượng CAND. Tuy nhiên, chất vấn của đại biểu Lưu Bình Nhưỡng đã đưa ra một số số liệu liên quan đến đánh giá chưa đúng về chất lượng công tác điều tra, xử lý tội phạm của lực lượng Công an, gây dư luận nhiều chiều trong xã hội, trong đó có các bức xúc của cử tri trong lực lượng CAND.
Khi trả lời báo chí về việc trên, đại biểu Lưu Bình Nhưỡng vẫn khẳng định:“Tôi không nhầm lẫn bất kỳ một số liệu nào! Tôi chịu trách nhiệm trước Đảng, trước Nhân dân, trước Quốc hội, trước cử tri về tất cả những vấn đề tôi phát biểu và số phần trăm tôi chia”.

Trên không gian mạng, ngày 3-11-2018, tài khoản Facebook có tên “Lưu Binhnhuong” tự giới thiệu là đại biểu Quốc hội Lưu Bình Nhưỡng, Phó Trưởng Ban Dân nguyện thuộc Ủy ban Thường vụ Quốc hội, đăng tải bài viết về vấn đề trên, trong đó có đưa ra đánh giá tiêu cực về ngành Công an. Đồng thời, khẳng định phát biểu của mình là hoàn toàn chính xác và kêu gọi cộng đồng mạng, cử tri cả nước biết để cùng chia sẻ. Lợi dụng vấn đề trên, các trang mạng, blog và nhiều tài khoản Facebook có nội dung phản động đã tán phát, đăng nhiều video clip, bài viết công kích, bôi nhọ lực lượng Công an, thu hút nhiều lượt theo dõi, bình luận tiêu cực, gây dư luận xấu.
Đảng ủy Công an Trung ương rất trân trọng các ý kiến của đại biểu Quốc hội, mong muốn đóng góp cho lực lượng Công an khắc phục những vấn đề còn tồn tại, thiếu sót để thực hiện tốt hơn nhiệm vụ bảo đảm an ninh, trật tự hết sức khó khăn, phức tạp hiện nay. Tuy nhiên, các ý kiến đánh giá cần khách quan, thận trọng, vì đây là hoạt động của cả một lực lượng, không chỉ nhìn ở khía cạnh tiêu cực mà cần đánh giá tổng thể để cử tri và nhân dân cả nước hiểu đúng vấn đề.
Văn bản cũng điểm lại một số nét về công tác giữ gìn an ninh, trật tự trong thời gian qua. Lực lượng CAND đã phát huy vai trò, nhiệm vụ, phối hợp các cấp, các ngành bảo đảm vững chắc an ninh quốc gia, làm thất bại âm mưu, hoạt động chống phá của các thế lực thù địch, phản động, xử lý kịp thời các vụ việc phức tạp về an ninh, trật tự.
Đã đấu tranh làm giảm 2,72% số vụ phạm pháp hình sự, tỷ lệ điều tra, khám phá án đạt 81,33% (vượt chỉ tiêu Quốc hội đề ra); triệt phá nhiều băng, ổ nhóm tội phạm, khẩn trương điều tra, làm rõ các vụ án nghiêm trọng và đặc biệt nghiêm trọng... Chất lượng công tác điều tra tiếp tục được nâng lên, chấp hành pháp luật trong hoạt động điều tra được bảo đảm, kiểm sát tuân theo pháp luật, hạn chế tình trạng oan, sai, bức cung, nhục hình...
“Như vậy, phải khẳng định tình hình an ninh, trật tự của nước ta tiếp tục được giữ vững, công tác phòng ngừa, đấu tranh chống tội phạm, vi phạm pháp luật tiếp tục có chuyển biến theo chiều hướng tốt hơn. Đây là sự cố gắng, nỗ lực rất lớn của Chính phủ, các cấp, các ngành, nhất là ý chí quyết tâm, sự hy sinh, gian khổ của lực lượng CAND trong bối cảnh tình hình đang phức tạp như hiện nay. Chỉ tính riêng 6 tháng đầu năm 2018, đã có 7 cán bộ, chiến sĩ Công an hy sinh, 90 đồng chí bị thương, 37 đồng chí bị phơi nhiễm HIV trong khi thực hiện nhiệm vụ” – văn bản nêu rõ.
Về các số liệu liên quan việc nhận định, đánh giá chưa đúng của đại biểu Lưu Bình Nhưỡng, Bộ Công an đã kiểm tra lại và có thông tin cụ thể:
Tính trong 12 tháng báo cáo Quốc hội (từ 01/10/2017 đến 30/9/2018), các CQĐT đã tiếp nhận và giải quyết tin báo, tố giác tội phạm và kiến nghị khởi tố tăng 4,57% so với cùng kỳ năm 2017. Trong đó, CQĐT trong CAND tiếp nhận và giải quyết là 118.731 tin chiếm 98,83%; (1,17% còn lại là tin báo, tố giác tội phạm do các Cơ quan khác tiếp nhận và giải quyết như CQĐT Quân đội nhân dân; CQĐT của Viện Kiểm sát nhân dân; Cơ quan khác được giao tiến hành một số hoạt động điều tra như Hải quan, Cảnh sát Biển, Kiểm lâm...).
Tổng số tin báo, tố giác tội phạm và kiến nghị khởi tố đã giải quyết 104.767 (tỷ lệ giải quyết đạt 87,20%). So với tổng thể chung số tin báo, tố giác tội phạm đã thụ lý giải quyết thì những vi phạm trên chiếm tỷ lệ rất nhỏ, cụ thể là:
- Số tin báo, tố giác không thụ lý theo đúng quy định của CQĐT trong CAND là 82/118.731 tin, chiếm tỷ lệ 0,07%.
- Số tin báo, tố giác tội phạm, kiến nghị khởi tố đã giải quyết nhưng chậm gửi quyết định giải quyết cho Viện Kiểm sát của CQĐT trong CAND là 37/118.731 tin chiếm 0,03%.
- Số tin báo, tố giác xử lý quá hạn của CQĐT trong CAND là 3.360/118.731 tin chiếm tỷ lệ 2,82%.
- Số lần vi phạm trong việc gửi, tống đạt, thông báo, niêm yết… các lệnh, quyết định áp dụng, thay đổi, hủy bỏ các biện pháp ngăn chặn của CQĐT trong CAND là 33 chiếm tỷ lệ 0,01%.
Như vậy, số liệu đại biểu Lưu Bình Nhưỡng tự tính để đưa ra các con số báo cáo trước Quốc hội để khẳng định “vi phạm của CQĐT là rất khủng khiếp, không thụ lý tin tố giác 94%, chậm gửi quyết định cho VKS 86%, xử lý tin tố giác quá hạn 99,76%, vi phạm tống đạt 100%...” là hoàn toàn không đúng, có tính chất suy diễn, quy chụp, gây ảnh hưởng đến uy tín của lực lượng CAND.
Do đó, Đảng ủy Công an Trung ương kiến nghị Chủ tịch Quốc hội có ý kiến kết luận về những nội dung trên để thông báo trước Quốc hội và cử tri cả nước. Kiến nghị Đảng đoàn Quốc hội yêu cầu đại biểu Lưu Bình Nhưỡng đính chính lại những nhận định, đánh giá liên quan đến số liệu trên và không có các lời nói, hoạt động làm phức tạp thêm tình hình; đồng thời có hình thức xử lý vi phạm có liên quan đến việc phát ngôn và đánh giá, nhận định tình hình gây dư luận xấu.

          Facebook retira el anuncio antiinmigración de Trump por "sensacionalista"       Cache   Translate Page      
San Francisco (EFE)-. La red social Facebook anunció hoy que ha decidido retirar el polémico anuncio antiinmigración de la campaña del Partido Republicano al considerar que su "contenido sensacionalista" transgrede las políticas de la compañía.

En un comunicado, la empresa que dirige Mark Zuckerberg indicó que aunque el vídeo podrá seguir siendo compartido por los usuarios, la red social no permitirá que se pague para su difusión como ocurría hasta ahora.

Medios locales calculan que los republicanos se gastaron entre 28.000 y 100.000 dólares para promocionar el anuncio en Facebook y que este recibió entre 2,8 y 5 millones de visitas en la plataforma.

La acción de Facebook se produce después de que dos de las principales cadenas de televisión del país, NBC y la conservadora Fox News, hayan tomado la misma decisión en las últimas horas, y de que el canal CNN rechazase su emisión desde un primer momento.

El anuncio fue emitido ayer por NBC en el intermedio de un partido entre los New England Patriots y los Green Bay Packers de la Liga Nacional de Fútbol Americano (NFL) y procede de la campaña del presidente Donald Trump para las elecciones de mitad de mandato que se celebran mañana.

En él se relaciona a los migrantes de la caravana procedente de Centroamérica con un criminal condenado en EE.UU. por matar a dos policías en 2014, Luis Bracamontes.

"A los peligrosos criminales ilegales como el asesino de policías Luis Bracamontes no les importan nuestras leyes", asegura el anuncio, una versión resumida de otro que compartió el propio Trump la semana pasada en su cuenta de Twitter, que también incluía una acusación a los demócratas de permitir que Bracamontes entrara en el país.

El anuncio ha provocado numerosas críticas, entre ellas la de la actriz Debra Messing, protagonista de la serie "Will y Grace" que produce NBC, que aseguró a sus seguidores en Twitter estar "avergonzada" de que su cadena emitiera "ese repugnante anuncio racista".

"Es la antítesis de todo en lo que personalmente creo y de lo que, pienso, trata nuestro show", concluyó la actriz a través de la red social.

Low Rider is another in the series of paintings depicting the beautiful bicycles of San Francisco. I found this vintage trike in a San Francisco thrift shop and was immediately inspired
They just don’t make them like this anymore. The ‘50’s colors, rust on the handle bars and sturdiness all appealed to me. Some kids had great fun on this trike, and I had a lot of fun painting it. I hope you enjoy it too.

          Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Rainbow Pride Symbols       Cache   Translate Page      

What do they mean?

The rainbow flag has become the easily-recognized colours of pride for the gay community. The multicultural symbolism of the rainbow is nothing new -- Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition also embraces the rainbow as a symbol of that political movement. The rainbow also plays a part in many myths and stories related to gender and sexuality issues in Greek, Native American, African, and other cultures.

Use of the rainbow flag by the gay community began in 1978 when it first appeared in the San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Freedom Day Parade. Borrowing symbolism from the hippie movement and black civil rights groups, San Francisco artist Gilbert Baker designed the rainbow flag in response to a need for a symbol that could be used year after year. Baker and thirty volunteers hand-stitched and hand-dyed two huge prototype flags for the parade. The flags had eight stripes, each colour representing a component of the community: hot pink for sex, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for sun, green for nature, turquoise for art, indigo for harmony, and violet for spirit.

The next year Baker approached The San Francisco Paramount Flag Company to mass produce rainbow flags for the 1979 parade. Due to production constraints -- such as the fact that hot pink was not a commercially available color -- pink and turquoise were removed from the design, and royal blue replaced indigo. This six-color version spread from San Francisco to other cities, and soon became the widely known symbol of gay pride and diversity it is today. It is even officially recognized by the International Congress of Flag Makers. In 1994, a huge 30 foot wide by one mile long rainbow flag was carried by 10,000 people in New York's Stonewall 25 Parade. 

The rainbow flag has inspired a wide variety of related symbols, such as freedom rings and other accessories. There are plenty of variations of the flag, including versions with a blue field of stars reminiscent of the American Stars and Stripes and versions with superimposed lambdas, pink triangles, or other symbols.

The Bisexual Pride Flag. The pink color represents sexual attraction to the same sex only (gay and lesbian), the blue represents sexual attraction to the opposite sex only (straight) and the resultant overlap color purple represents sexual attraction to both sexes (bi). The key to understanding the symbolism in the Bi Pride Flag is to know that the purple pixels of color blend unnoticeable into both the pink and blue, just as in the 'real world' where most bi people blend unnoticeable into both the gay/lesbian and straight communities.

The pink triangle is easily one of the more popular and widely recognized symbols for the gay community. The pink triangle is rooted in World War II times, and reminds us of the tragedies of that era. Although homosexuals were only one of the many groups targeted for extermination by the Nazi regime, it is unfortunately the group that history often excludes. The pink triangle challenges that notion, and defies anyone to deny history.

The history of the pink triangle begins before WWII, during Adolf Hitler's rise to power. Paragraph 175, a clause in German law prohibiting homosexual relations, was revised by Hitler in 1935 to include kissing, embracing, and gay fantasies as well as sexual acts. Convicted offenders -- an estimated 25,000 just from 1937 to 1939 -- were sent to prison and then later to concentration camps. Their sentence was to be sterilized, and this was most often accomplished by castration. In 1942 Hitler's punishment for homosexuality was extended to death.

Each prisoner in the concentration camps wore a colored inverted triangle to designate their reason for incarceration, and hence the designation also served to form a sort of social hierarchy among the prisoners. A green triangle marked its wearer as a regular criminal; a red triangle denoted a political prisoner. Two yellow triangles overlapping to form a Star of David designated a Jewish prisoner. The pink triangle was for homosexuals. A yellow Star of David under a superimposed pink triangle marked the lowest of all prisoners -- a gay Jew.

Stories of the camps depict homosexual prisoners being given the worst tasks and labors. Pink triangle prisoners were also a proportionally large focus of attacks from the guards and even other inmates. Although the total number of the homosexual prisoners is not known, official Nazi estimates were an underwhelming 10,000.

Although homosexual prisoners reportedly were not shipped en masse to the death camps at Auschwitz, a great number of gay men were among the non Jews who were killed there. Estimates of the number of gay men killed during the Nazi regime range from 50,000 to twice that figure. When the war was finally over, countless many homosexuals remained prisoners in the camps, because Paragraph 175 remained law in West Germany until its repeal in 1969. 

In the 1970s, gay liberation groups resurrected the pink triangle as a popular symbol for the gay rights movement. Not only is the symbol easily recognized, but it draws attention to oppression and persecution -- then and now. In the 1980s, ACT-UP (AIDS Coalition To Unleash Power) began using the pink triangle for their cause. They inverted the symbol, making it point up, to signify an active fight back rather than a passive resignation to fate. Today, for many the pink triangle represents pride, solidarity, and a promise to never allow another Holocaust to happen again.

Like the pink triangle, the black triangle is also rooted in Nazi Germany. Although lesbians were not included in the Paragraph 175 prohibition of homosexuality, there is evidence to indicate that the black triangle was used to designate prisoners with anti social behavior. Considering that the Nazi idea of womanhood focused on children, kitchen, and church, black triangle prisoners may have included lesbians, prostitutes, women who refused to bear children, and women with other "anti-social" traits. As the pink triangle is historically a male symbol, the black triangle has similarly been reclaimed by lesbians and feminists as a symbol of pride and solidarity.

The Leather Pride Flag is a symbol for the leather community, which encompasses those who are into leather, Levi's, sado-masochism, bondage and domination, uniform, cowboys, rubber, and other fetishes. The flag was created by artist Tony DeBlase and first displayed on May 28, 1989, at the Mr. Leather contest in Chicago. Although the flag is often common in the gay community, it is not a "gay-only" symbol.

Reportedly, gay leather aficionados might also modify a rainbow flag to have a black stripe instead of a violet one. (However, this version might be confused with the "Victory Over AIDS" version of the rainbow flag, as they are identical.)

The Bear Pride Flag is a symbol used by some "bears," gay men marked by an abundance of hair on their face, chest, and body. Bears also tend to be older, and perhaps larger or chubby. There does not seem to be one single symbol that represents bears in general. Rather, there are many symbols that have been adopted by local clubs, bars, and other bear groups.

The colors of the flag represent the various types of bears in the culture.

The Transgender Pride flag was created by Monica Helms in 1999 and was first shown at a pride parade in Phoenix AZ, US in 2000.

The flag represents the transgendered community and consists of five horizontal stripes: two light blue, two pink, and one white in the center.

Ms. Helms describes the meaning of the transgender flag as follows:

"The stripes at the top and bottom are light blue, the traditional color for baby boys.The stripes next to them are pink, the traditional color for baby girls The stripe in the middle is white, for those who are intersex, transitioning or consider themselves having a neutral or undefined gender. The pattern is such that no matter which way you fly it, it is always correct, signifying us finding correctness in our lives."

The AIDS Awareness Ribbon, or red ribbon, is commonly seen adorning jacket lapels and other articles of clothing as a symbol of solidarity and a commitment to the fight against AIDS.

The Ribbon Project was conceived in 1991 by Visual AIDS, a New York based charity group of art professionals that aims to recognize and honor friends and colleagues who have died or are dying of AIDS. Visual AIDS encourages arts organizations, museums, commercial galleries, and AIDS support groups to commemorate those lost to AIDS, to create greater awareness of AIDS/HIV transmission, to publicize the needs of Persons With AIDS, and to call for greater funding of services and research. Inspired by the yellow ribbons honoring American soldiers of the Persian Gulf War, the color red was chosen for its "connection to blood and the idea of of passion -- not only anger, but love, like a valentine," as stated by Frank Moore of Visual AIDS.

Worn by host Jeremy Irons, the ribbon made its public debut at the 1991 Tony Awards, and soon became a popular and politically correct fashion statement for celebrities and other awards ceremonies. Because of this popularity, some activists worry that the ribbon has become simple lip service to AIDS causes; in one particular incident the First Lady Barbara Bush wore a red ribbon while sitting in the audience with her husband, but when she stood at the President's side during his speech, her ribbon was conspicuously missing.

However, the Ribbon Project remains a powerful force in spreading awareness of AIDS and stressing the need for further action and research of the disease. The sincerest hope for the Ribbon Project is that it will one day no longer be needed.

Inspired by the red ribbon, the pink ribbon became the symbol for breast cancer awareness. Although, like AIDS, breast cancer is certainly not an issue limited to the gay community, the statistics of breast cancer are historically higher in women who do not bear children. Consequently, for some lesbians breast cancer awareness and prevention is a particularly important issue.

Gender Symbols are common astrological signs handed down from ancient Roman times. The pointed Mars symbol represents the male and the Venus symbol with the cross represents the female. Double interlocking male symbols have been used by gay men since the 1970s. Double interlocking female symbols have often been used to denote lesbianism, but some feminists have instead used the double female symbols to represent the sisterhood of women. These same feminists would use three interlocking female symbols to denote lesbianism. Also, some lesbian feminists of the 1970's used three interlocking female symbols to represent their rejection of male standards of monogamy.

Also in the 1970s, gay liberation movements used the male and female symbols superimposed to represent the common goals of lesbians and gay men. These days, the superimposed symbols might also denote a heterosexual aware of the differences and diversity between men and women. A transgendered person might superimpose the male and female symbols in such a way that the arrow and cross join on the same single ring.

The astrological sign of Mercury is traditionally the symbol of transgendered peoples. In Greek mythology, Hermes (the Greek version of the Roman god Mercury) and Aphrodite (the goddess of love) had a child named Hermaphroditus. That child possessed both male and female sexual organs, hence the term hermaphrodite. Also, rituals associated with the worship of Aphrodite are believed to have been highly sexual, involving castration, transvestism, and homosexual relations.

In the symbol itself, the crescent moon at the top is supposed to represent the masculine, and the cross at the bottom represents the feminine. The ring represents the individual, with the male and the female balanced at either side.

The lambda symbol seems to be one of the most controversial of symbols in regards to its meaning. There are several differing opinions as to why the lambda was chosen as a gay symbol and what it really means. However, most sources agree on a few things:

The lambda was first chosen as a gay symbol when it was adopted in 1970 by the New York Gay Activists Alliance. It became the symbol of their growing movement of gay liberation. In 1974, the lambda was subsequently adopted by the International Gay Rights Congress held in Edinburgh, Scotland. As their symbol for lesbian and gay rights, the lambda became internationally popular.

But where history ends, speculation begins. No one seems to have a definitive answer why the lambda was originally chosen as a gay symbol. Some suggest that it is simply the Greek lower case letter l for liberation. Others disagree, citing the use of lambda in physics to denote energy (the energy we have when we work in concert) or wavelength (are gays and lesbians on a different wavelength?). Lambda may also denote the synergy of the gay movement, the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The lambda also may represent scales and balance, and the constant force that keeps opposing sides from overcoming each other -- the hook at the bottom of the right leg signifies the action needed to reach and maintain balance. The ancient Greek Spartans regarded the lambda to mean unity, while the Romans considered it "the light of knowledge shed into the darkness of ignorance." Reportedly, Ancient Greeks may have also placed the lambda on shields of gay men and their lovers who were among the fighting elite of the Greek Army.

Whatever the exact meaning and origin, the lambda originally embodied a fairly militant connotation. Today, the symbol generally denotes lesbian's and gay men's concerns together. Although the lambda was never intended to be linked to any specific gender or orientation such as other symbols may be, historically this is not so: In the early 1970's the Los Angeles gay community created a flag with a lavender lambda on a simple white background. They hoped the flag would catch on to other cities, but their hopes were not realized because some saw the lambda as a male symbol only.

The labrys is a double-sided hatchet or axe commonly used in ancient European, African, and Asian matriarchal societies as both a weapon and a harvesting tool. Greek artwork depicts the amazon armies of Europe wielding labrys weapons. Amazons ruled with a dual-queen system in which one queen was in charge of the army and battle, and the other queen stayed behind to administer the conquered cities. Amazons were known to be ferocious and merciless in battle, but once victorious they ruled with justice. Today, the labrys is a lesbian and feminist symbol of strength and self-sufficiency.

In addition, the labrys also played a part in ancient mythology. Demeter, the goddess of the earth, used a labrys as her sceptor. Rites associated with the worship of the Demeter, as well as Hecate (the goddess of the underworld), are believed to have involved lesbian sex.

          BẦU CỬ 2018 & NGƯỜI MỸ GỐC VIỆT (Genie Nguyễn Thị Ngọc Giao)       Cache   Translate Page      



Genie Nguyễn Thị Ngọc Giao  -  Voice of Vietnamese Amerians
05/11/2018

Ngày mai, 6 tháng 11, Hoa Kỳ sẽ có cuộc bầu cử giữa hai kỳ bầu Tổng Thống, hay còn gọi là “Bầu Cử Giữa Kỳ” (Midterm Elections). Người Mỹ gốc Việt đã có những tham gia rất tích cực vào kỳ bầu cử này. Cho đến hôm nay, vài ngày trước ngày bầu cử chính thức, người Mỹ gốc Việt cũng chia sẻ nhiều sôi động với các náo loạn của dòng chính, ngay cả chia rẽ với tinh thần đảng phái cực đoan trong cộng đồng mình.

Mong rằng sự đóng góp đầy nhiệt tình của chúng ta sẽ không đẩy cộng đồng Mỹ gốc Việt vào sự phân hoá đáng ngại giữa hai chính đảng Hoa Kỳ, rơi vào sự kỳ thị chủng tộc, kỳ thị tôn giáo, hiềm khích đầy bạo lực không nên có. Dù theo đảng nào hay ủng hộ ứng viên nào, người Việt chúng ta đều chia sẻ giá trị Tự Do, Dân Chủ, Nhân Quyền, Dân Quyền của Hoa Kỳ, và chung hoài bão muốn bảo vệ chủ quyền của Việt Nam trước sự xâm lăng của Trung Cộng.

Voice of Vietnamese Americans xin mời quý đồng hương cùng duyệt qua bức tranh chung, mong rằng qua kỳ bầu cử này người Mỹ gốc Việt sẽ chứng tỏ cho chính khách Hoa Kỳ và thế giới thấy được sự trưởng thành, lớn mạnh của người Mỹ gốc Việt và sẽ tôn trọng tiếng nói của chúng ta hơn khi quyết định các chính sách ảnh hưởng đến người Việt .

I . Cộng Đồng Mỹ Gốc Việt, dân số và lá phiếu:

Cho đến nay, trong các giống dân Mỹ gốc Á Châu Thái Bình Dương, cử tri gốc Việt đi bầu hăng hái nhất, đến 77 % . Tuy nhiên, tiếng nói của chúng ta lại chưa được hiệu quả lắm, nhất là với những chính sách đối ngoại như nhân quyền, hay đối phó với Trung Cộng trên Biển Đông.

Theo Migration Policy Institute, người Việt tập trung tại các tiểu bang California (39%), Texas (13%), Washington State (4%), và Florida (4%) . Tại các tiểu bang này chúng ta sớm có một số đại diện dân cử người Mỹ gốc Việt tại địa phương. Nhưng năm nay, số ứng viên tăng lên gấp bội, và gồm cả những tiểu bang miền Đông như Massachusetts, Viriginia, hay miền Nam như Georgia.

Theo tài liệu của Census Bureau cho đến năm 2016, thì chúng ta có khoảng 2 triệu người (2,067,000) tập trung tại các khu vực như California (Orange County, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, San Diego), Texas (Houston, Dallas – Fort Worth, Austin), Massachusetts (Boston), New Jersey, New York (New York City), Philadelphia, Virginia – Maryland – Washington D.C, Washington State (Seattle), Louisiana (New Orleans), Oregon (Portland), Oklahoma (Oklahoma City), Arizona (Phoenix), Nevada (Las Vegas), Georgia (Atlanta). Tại mỗi thành phố vừa nêu, có trên 10,000 ngàn người Việt cư ngụ . Đây là con số đáng kể nếu chúng ta đi bầu .

Theo nghiên cửu của Pew vào tháng 9/ 2017, thì 75% người Mỹ gốc Việt đã là công dân, và có thể đi bỏ phiếu. Đó là một con số đáng kể, nếu tất cả chúng ta khi có quốc tịch đều ghi danh cử tri và đi bầu .

Cuộc bầu cử giữa kỳ thường cho thấy mức ủng hộ của người dân đối với vị Tổng Thống đương nhiệm sau hai năm tại vị . Tổng Thống Trump là vị lãnh đạo không theo các tiêu chuẩn chính thống, đã tạo nhiều phân hoá trong toàn quốc trên nhiều phương diện, và có điểm tín nhiệm thấp nhất so với các vị Tổng Thống trước . Riêng với dân Mỹ gốc Việt, đài VOA ngày 26/10 đưa tin là 64% dân Việt tín nhiệm ông Trump, vì nghĩ rằng ông có thái độ cứng rắn với Trung Cộng. Nhiều người thích thú khi thấy ông Trump đánh thuế lên hàng Trung Quốc, và làm cho kinh tế Trung Cộng chao đảo, tuy Trung Cộng vẫn gia tăng áp lực lên Việt Nam và tiếp tục quân sự hoá Biển Đông.

Ngày 2/11, ông Trump tweeted rằng “các cuộc thảo luận thương mại với Trung Quốc đang diễn tiến tốt đẹp”. Trong cùng ngày, Ngoại Trưởng Vương Nghị của Trung Quốc khẳng định “Trung Quốc có chủ quyền tại Biển Đông” khi thăm New York . Đáp lại, Ngoại Trưởng Hoa Kỳ Mike Pompeo chỉ “nhắc khéo” đến thoả thuận chế tài Bình Nhưỡmg! Điều này khiến người Mỹ gốc Việt cũng cần thận trọng, xin nhớ rằng Hoa Kỳ phải đặt quyền lợi quốc gia của họ lên trên hết.

Trong bài đăng trên VOA ngày 26/10, phóng viên An Hải cũng nêu lên là “thế hệ thứ nhất ủng hộ Cộng Hoà”, còn “thế hệ thứ hai ủng hộ Dân Chủ”.

2 . Giới Trẻ tích cực ra tranh cử:

Rất đông người Mỹ gốc Việt trẻ tuổi đã tham dự cuộc biểu tình ngày 21/01/2017, một ngày ngay sau khi ông Trump đăng quang, tại Hoa Thịnh Đốn, trên các thành phố lớn toàn quốc, và trên toàn thế giới. Họ cho là ông không có đạo đức, coi thường phụ nữ, chế nhạo người tàn tật, kỳ thị người da màu, và không đủ kinh nghiệm cũng như thiếu tư cách để lãnh đạo quốc gia . Nhiều phụ nữ trẻ Mỹ gốc Việt đã chọn con đường tích cực là ra tranh cử trong các vai trò lập pháp tại tiểu bang hay liên bang, để có thể sử dụng hệ thống tam quyền phân lập trong guồng máy chính trị Hoa Kỳ hầu bảo vệ các giá trị nhân bản của Hiến Pháp Hoa Kỳ, trong đó có nhân quyền, dân quyền, và bình quyền về giới tính.

Tại Virginia, Bà Kathy Trần, một phụ nữ Việt tỵ nạn vừa sinh con gái ngày 20.1.2017, đã quyết định tranh cử vào ghế Dân Biểu Tiểu Bang Virginia để: “Bảo vệ tương lai cho con gái tôi và duy trì môi trường, nhân quyền, dân quyền cho người dân Virginia” . Kathy Trần (D) đã thắng cử ngoạn mục, thay thế ông Dave Albo (R), người từng giữ ghế này suốt 24 năm.
Kathy Trần phản đối việc Tổng Thống Trump rút ra khỏi Paris Climate Agreement, đòi huỷ Luật Bảo Hiểm Y Tế Vừa Túi Tiền, cắt ngân sách cho các chương trình bảo vệ sức khoẻ phụ nữ, chuyển ngân quỹ giáo dục công lập sang cho các trường tư thục, và có các đạo luật hành chánh vi phạm quyền của người di dân và người da màu .

Nhiều người trẻ khác cũng ra tranh cử vào các ghế lập pháp liên bang, như Bác Sĩ Mai Khanh Trần (D - địa hạt 39, California), anh Ethan Phạm (D -đia hạt 8, Texas), anh Daniel Nguyễn ( R-địa hạt 22, Texas), Bà Stephanie Ngọc-Dung Đặng Murphy (D- Dân Biêu Liên Bang từ Florida địa hạt 7) .

Quốc Hội Tiểu Bang có lẽ gần gũi hơn, và năm nay có khá nhiều ứng viên Mỹ gốc Việt tranh cử, từ California (TNS tiểu bang Janet Nguyễn (R) tái tranh cử; ứng viên Tyler Diệp (R ) tranh cử vào ghế General Assembly), đến Massachusetts (Luật sư Trâm Nguyễn- D- tranh cử vào ghế Dân Biểu Tiểu Bang từ địa hạt 18th Essex), và tại tiểu bang Washington (Bác Sĩ Savio Phạm -R, Bác Sĩ Joe Nguyễn - D - tranh cử vào thượng viện tiểu bang, Dược sĩ Mỹ-Linh Thái – D- tranh cử vào ghế dân biểu liên bang).

Tại Westminster, Orange County, nơi người Việt chiếm 1/5 dân số, có đến 6 ứng viên Mỹ gốc Việt tranh cử ghế Nghị Viên Hội Đồng Thành Phố: Khải Đào, Tài Đỗ; Chi Charlie Nguyen, Frances The-Thuy Nguyen, Samantha Bao Anh Nguyen, Andy Quach. Đó là chưa kể chúng ta đã có Thị Trưởng Tạ Đức Trí, Nghị Viên Thành Phố Nguyễn Tâm cũng đang tái tranh cử.

Tại Texas, chúng ta có Dân Biểu Tiểu Bang Hubert Võ (D) đại diện địa hạt 149 từng được tín nhiệm suốt 5 nhiệm kỳ; Commissioner Andy Nguyễn ở Taran County rất được lòng cử tri, cũng tái tranh cử . Đặc biệt có anh Danny Nguyễn (R) tranh cử kỳ sơ bộ vào ghê Dân Biểu Liên Bang từ Texas địa hạt 22, nhưng không vào chung kết . Chính tại địa hạt 22 này, chúng ta có Nathan Trương, một người Mỹ gốc Việt mới 26 tuổi, đang vận động cho ứng viên Sri Preston Kulkarni (D) và tạo nhiều tiếng vang .

Chúng ta cũng đã có một số người thắng cử các cuộc bầu cử đặc biệt và đã thắng vẻ vang, như Cô Bee Nguyễn (D), Dân Biểu Tiểu Bang Georgia địa hạt 89; Dean Tran (R) – Thượng Nghị Sĩ Tiểu Bang Massachusetts qua cuộc bầu cử đặc biệt vào tháng 12, 2017 .

Theo dõi các ứng viên Mỹ gốc Việt, chúng ta thấy tuy khác đảng phái, họ cùng chia sẻ những điểm chung sau đây:
1.    Là người Việt tỵ nạn Cộng Sản, sang Hoa Kỳ khi còn nhỏ tuổi.
2.    Hiểu được sự khó khăn của cha mẹ, gia đình trong bước đầu của người di dân .
3.    Ngoài khả năng vượt trội, họ còn có lý tưởng muốn đóng góp và tạo thay đổi .
4.    Vẫn còn mang trong người dòng máu Việt, tâm thức Việt, nhưng đã hoà nhập với đời sống Hoa Kỳ, giá trị nhân bản của Hoa Kỳ, với đầu óc rộng mở để phục vụ xứ sở này .
Sự dấn thân của người Mỹ gốc Việt vào guồng máy Lập Pháp và Hành Pháp của Hoa Kỳ từ địa phương, đến tiểu bang, liên bang, là nguồn hứng khởi cho cử tri Mỹ gốc Việt. Những ứng viên này thuộc cả đảng Dân Chủ lẫn Cộng Hoà, và đều có khả năng cùng tâm huyết vượt trội.

Nhìn chung, các ứng viên đều chủ trương tranh đấu để nói lên tiếng nói của khối dân thiểu số Mỹ gốc Việt , Mỹ gốc Á Châu Thái Bình Dương , mong đạt đến sự đối xử bình đẳng không kỳ thị cho mọi giống dân . Các ứng viên tuy khác đảng phái, nhưng cùng quan tâm đến vấn đề y tế, di dân, giáo dục, nghề nghiệp, giao thương,và gần đây nhất là chuyện sử dụng sung, và quyền có quốc tịch Hoa Kỳ.

Khi tranh cử vào dòng chính, các ứng viên khó có cơ hội đề cập đến các vần đề người Việt quan tâm, như nhân quyền cho Việt Nam, hay tranh chấp trên Biển Đông . Cử tri Mỹ gốc Việt chúng ta cần lưu ý mọi ứng viên về các quan tâm này, đưa vào trong nội dung của “giá trị nhân bản của Hoa Kỳ, và quyền lợi quốc gia Hoa Kỳ” .

Voice of Vietnamese Americans có dịp tổ chức buổi “Nói Chuyện với Ứng Cử Viện vào Hạ Viện Hoa Kỳ từ Virginia Địa Hạt 8”, giữa ứng viên Don Beyer (D)- Dân Biểu đương nhiệm, và ứng viên Thomas Oh (R ), người Mỹ gốc Đại Hàn . Khi câu hỏi đưa ra về nhân quyền, TPP, và tranh chấp trên Biển Đông, thì ông Don Beyer (D ) lại đứng về phía người Việt và người Đông Nam Á đòi Trung Cộng phải tôn trọng luật quốc tế, trong khi ông Thomas Oh trả lời không biết nhiều về các vấn đề này .

3. Vai trò của Cử Tri:

Là cử tri, chúng ta cũng cần tham dự các buổi nói chuyện với ứng viên, và chia sẻ với họ các điều chúng ta quan tâm. Như vậy, lá phiếu của người Mỹ gốc Việt sẽ có ý nghĩa hơn .

Tiếng Nói Người Mỹ Gốc Việt đề nghị chúng ta bỏ phiếu theo tiêu chuẩn : Nhiên (bảo vệ môi trường, khí hậu) – Nhân (bảo vệ nhân quyền) – Dân (bảo vệ dân quyền) để song đôi với quan tâm của đồng bào tại Việt Nam trong lúc vẫn đặt nặng giá trị của Hoa Kỳ .

Chúng ta rât may mắn có một thế hệ trẻ tài giỏi, nhiêt huyết, dấn thân. Hãy cùng nhau hỗ trợ họ để cùng đi tới. Voice of Vietnamese Americans hoan hô tất cả những ai đã dấn thân phục vụ cộng đồng.

Xin cử tri Mỹ gốc Việt hãy đi bầu thật đông năm nay, ngày 6 tháng 11, 2018..

Thứ Hai, ngày 05 tháng 11 năm 2018

Ngày 06/11/2018, cử tri tại Hoa Kỳ sẽ đi bỏ phiếu trong cuộc bầu cử giữa nhiệm kỳ. Cũng như các cuộc bầu cử khác, lá phiếu của các cộng đồng sắc tộc, tùy theo mỗi địa phương, cũng rất quan trọng. Riêng cộng đồng người Việt thì mức độ tham gia như thế nào, xu hướng bỏ phiếu của họ ra sao, hôm nay chúng ta sẽ cùng tìm hiểu với nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư ở Houston, Texas.

Theo nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư, bầu cử giữa kỳ năm nay rất quan trọng, vì sự thay đổi về số người được bầu trong Hạ, Thượng Viện sẽ làm thay đổi cán cân quyền lực của đảng Cộng Hòa và của tổng thống Donald Trump.

Về lá phiếu cử tri người Việt, theo nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư, có hai vấn đề:

" Thứ nhất, trong cuộc bầu cử vào các chức vụ dân cử địa phương, lá phiếu của người Việt đương nhiên có ảnh hưởng khá lớn, nhất là ở tiểu bang California và Texas. Trong cuộc bầu cử liên bang, số người Việt ở Mỹ chưa tới 3 triệu, tức là chưa tới 1% dân số Mỹ. Số người có thể đi bầu, tức là có quốc tịch Mỹ, là chưa tới một nữa của 1% đó."

Trong cộng đồng người Việt, năm nay có nhiều người hăng hái ra tranh cử vào các chức vụ công quyền ở Orange County ( Quận Cam ), miền nam bang California và đây là điều khiến truyền thông Hoa Kỳ chú ý. Nhật báo Los Angeles Times ngày 21/10 ngạc nhiên ghi nhận có đến 24 người gốc Việt tranh cử ở Orange County và không có gì là bất ngờ lắm : hơn phân nữa, tức là 13 trong số 24 ứng cử viên gốc Việt đó là mang họ Nguyễn, một trong những họ phổ biến nhất của dân Việt Nam.

Phong trào người Việt ra tranh cử dường như bắt đầu từ năm 1992, khi nghị viên thành phố Westminster Tony Lâm trở thành người sinh ra ở Việt Nam đầu tiên đắc cử ở Hoa Kỳ. Theo tờ Los Angeles Times, các ứng cử viên gốc Việt chủ yếu tập trung ở các khu vực Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, và Westminster, tức những thành phố làm nên khu vực gọi là Little Saigon. Cư dân gốc Việt ra tranh những chức vụ quan trọng trong hội đồng thành phố hay nghị viên tiểu bang, cũng như tranh cử vào những chức vụ thấp hơn như như ủy viên giáo dục,...

Trong số 24 ứng cử viên Mỹ gốc Việt tại Quận Cam, thượng nghị sĩ tiểu bang Janet Nguyễn là một chính khách kỳ cựu, tham gia tranh cử lần thứ 9 trong cuộc bầu cử ngày mai. Nói với tờ Times, bà Janet Nguyễn tỏ ra không quá ngạc nhiên về mức độ tham gia chính trị trong cộng đồng mình. Theo thượng nghị sĩ Janet Nguyen, vốn là những người tị nạn chính trị, các đồng hương của bà biết rõ cuộc sống ở một đất nước nơi mà các quyền tự do hầu như không hiện hữu và nơi mà một chính đảng kiểm soát mọi phương diện đời sống. Bà cho rằng trải nghiệm đó đã khiến cho người Mỹ gốc Việt tương đối năng động về chính trị, đi bỏ phiếu đông đảo hơn một số nhóm cư dân khác.

Nhưng đứng từ phía Texas, tiểu bang cũng có một cộng đồng người Việt rất đông đảo, nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư nhận xét là nhìn chung hoạt động chính trị của người Việt lại đang giảm đi :

" Ở Texas, các ứng cử viên vào những chức vụ như ủy viên hội đồng thành phố hay dân biểu tiểu bang, cũng có một vài người Việt, ví dụ như ông Hubert Võ đã đắc cử dân biểu 2, 3 lần. Ngoài ra cũng có một vài vị ra tranh cử các chức vụ địa phương và cũng có một số thành công, nhưng không nhiều lắm so với các cộng đồng thiểu số khác.
Những người lớn tuổi như chúng tôi thì bây giờ "trùm chăn", không còn tham gia vào hoạt động chính trị ở địa phương, nhưng trong giới trẻ thì có một số tham gia.
Cách đây một vài thập niên, việc tham gia hoạt động chính trị địa phương rất là mạnh là vì tinh thần chống cộng lúc đó lên rất cao, nhưng cái sự chống cộng, theo tôi, dần dần không còn mạnh mẽ như trước. Do đó, hoạt động chính trị của người Việt trên nước Mỹ cũng giảm đi".

Theo ghi nhận của các chuyên gia được tờ Los Angeles Times trích dẫn, đa số các ứng cử viên gốc Việt là theo đảng Cộng Hòa, tuy rằng thế hệ trẻ hơn nay có xu hướng theo đảng Dân Chủ hoặc tranh cử với tư cách ứng cử viên độc lập. Cử tri Mỹ gốc Việt trong quá khứ vẫn được xem là thành phần nòng cốt của đảng Cộng Hòa, nhất là những người chống cộng quyết liệt nhất. Nhưng cộng đồng người Việt tị nạn đang già đi và thế hệ con, cháu của họ nay có đầu óc cấp tiến hơn.

Tuy vậy, kết quả một cuộc khảo sát về cử tri gốc Á công bố vào tháng 10 cho thấy người Mỹ gốc Việt là cộng đồng gốc Á duy nhất có đa số là ủng hộ tổng thống Donald Trump.
Khảo sát do tổ chức thúc đẩy quyền bầu cử cho người Mỹ gốc Á và Thái Bình Dương- APIAVote, và Viện Nghiên Cứu Người Mỹ Gốc Á và Thái Bình Dương- AAPIData- thực hiện từ ngày 23/08 đến ngày 4/10/2018.

Kết quả tổng quát cho thấy chỉ có 36% cử tri gốc Á ủng hộ tổng thống Donald Trump, nhưng riêng cử tri gốc Việt ủng hộ ông Trump với tỉ lệ lên tới 64%. Ngay cả cử tri gốc Philippines, đồng minh thân cận của Mỹ, cũng chỉ có 48% ủng hộ ông Trump.

Lý do tại sao người Mỹ gốc Việt lại ủng hộ tổng thống Trump nhiều đến thế, nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư giải thích :

" Những người Việt thế hệ đầu tiên, tức là 60, 70 tuổi, phần nhiều nghiêng về đảng Cộng Hòa. Còn thế hệ cử tri gốc Việt trình độ đại học thì thường nghiêng về phía Dân Chủ. Năm nay, đặc biệt ông Trump đối đầu về thương mại với Trung Quốc, cho nên ông được rất nhiều điểm từ cử tri gốc Việt. Người Việt chúng ta thì đại đa số là hận Trung Quốc, cho nên bất cứ người nào đập Trung Quốc là đương nhiên được cảm tình người Việt."

Cũng theo kết quả nói trên, trong khi cử tri gốc Á nói chung ủng hộ mạnh mẽ đảng Dân Chủ, thì cử tri gốc Việt lại có xu hướng dồn phiếu cho các ứng cử viên Cộng Hòa tranh cử vào Hạ Viện.

Cũng trong cộng đồng người Việt, như kết quả khảo sát ở trên cho thấy, cử tri thế hệ trẻ lại có xu hướng bầu cho Dân Chủ. Nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư ghi nhận :

" Suy nghĩ của thế hệ trẻ hoàn toàn độc lập và hoàn toàn mang bản sắc của người Mỹ, nên suy nghĩ của họ khác hẳn với chúng tôi. Phần lớn thế hệ trẻ có trình độ đại học là hướng về phía Dân Chủ. Vì cương lĩnh của đảng Dân Chủ trước hết là liberal, mà giới trẻ thì cũng liberal, nên thường họ có khuynh hướng nghiêng về phía Dân Chủ."

Nhưng khi được hỏi về dự định đi bỏ phiếu ngày mai, chỉ có .... 64% cử tri người Việt trả lời là có, trong khi tỷ lệ này trong cộng đồng Philippines lên đến 92%. Theo nhà báo Hà Ngọc Cư, có nhiều lý do giải thích vì nhiều cử tri gốc Việt ngại đi bầu :

" Có nhiều người cho rằng lá phiếu của người Việt trong cuộc bầu cử liên bang không có ảnh hưởng gì hết, cho nên có một số người thờ ơ, ít đi bầu. Thứ hai, ngày bầu cử lại là thứ Ba. Người Việt đa số phải đi làm, xin nghỉ cũng khó khăn và có khi đi làm về trễ, cho nên cũng ngại, không đi bầu. Một số người già thì không có phương tiện đi lại, trừ một số người bỏ phiếu qua bưu điện."









          VỀ VIỆC TRUMP MUỐN BÃI BỎ QUYỀN HƯỞNG QUỐC TỊCH MỸ THEO NƠI SINH (Trịnh Hữu Long - Luật Khoa)       Cache   Translate Page      



Posted on 02/11/2018

Trong một cuộc phỏng vấn được phát trên đài HBO ngày 30-10, Tổng thống Mỹ Donald Trump tuyên bố ông sẽ bãi bỏ quy chế thụ hưởng quốc tịch theo nơi sinh đối với những đứa trẻ có bố mẹ không phải là công dân Mỹ hoặc là người nhập cư bất hợp pháp ở Mỹ.

Ông nói, “chúng ta [nước Mỹ] là nước duy nhất trên thế giới nơi mà một ai đó tới, có con, và đứa trẻ đó nghiễm nghiên là công dân Mỹ… với tất cả mọi quyền lợi. Điều đó thật lố lịch. Điều đó thật lố bịch. Nó phải chấm dứt.”

Tổng thống Trump cũng cho biết ông sẽ làm việc này bằng một sắc lệnh hành pháp mà không cần phải sửa đổi Hiến pháp.

Vậy ta cần hiểu vấn đề này như thế nào?

Trước hết, quốc tịch theo nơi sinh là gì?

Hiểu đơn giản là một người được sinh ra ở nước nào thì nghiễm nhiên có quốc tịch của nước đó.

Thuật ngữ này ở Mỹ gọi là “birthright citizenship”, còn trong tiếng Latin gọi là “Jus soli”.

Trên thế giới hiện nay có hơn 30 nước áp dụng chính sách này chứ không phải chỉ có Mỹ như ông Trump nói. Trong số đó có cả Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, v.v. Theo Tạp chí Nhân quyền Harvard, một số nước trước đây cũng áp dụng chính sách này nhưng đã bãi bỏ trong những thập kỷ vừa qua, trong đó có Anh, Ireland, Úc, New Zealand, Ấn Độ, Malta và Cộng hoà Dominican.

Trên thế giới, có hai cách chính để xác định quốc tịch cho trẻ em mới sinh là quốc tịch theo nơi sinh (như Mỹ hiện nay) và quốc tịch theo huyết thống (như Việt Nam hiện nay). Tuy nhiên, Luật Quốc tịch Việt Nam (lẫn nhiều nước khác) đều thừa nhận một số trường hợp hạn hữu mà có thể áp dụng quy chế quốc tịch theo nơi sinh một cách có điều kiện.

Hiến pháp Mỹ nói gì về quốc tịch?

Hiến pháp Mỹ, có hiệu lực từ năm 1788, ban đầu không định nghĩa khái niệm quốc tịch. Mỹ mặc nhiên áp dụng nguyên tắc jus soli nói trên theo truyền thống pháp luật đã có từ thời thuộc địa Anh.

Đến khi sửa đổi hiến pháp bằng Tu chính án thứ 14 vào năm 1868 thì vấn đề này mới được làm rõ.

Theo đó, bản Tu chính án này nói rằng, “tất cả những người được sinh ra hoặc nhập tịch ở Hoa Kỳ, và do đó nằm dưới quyền tài phán [của Hoa Kỳ], đều là công dân của Hoa Kỳ và của tiểu bang nơi họ cư trú.”

Cũng cần phải nói thêm rằng luật pháp Hoa Kỳ, khác với Việt Nam, không chỉ dựa trên Hiến pháp và luật thành văn do Quốc hội ban hành, mà còn dựa rất nhiều trên các án lệ (case law).

Vụ án nổi tiếng tại Tối cao Pháp viện Hoa Kỳ xác lập rõ ràng quy chế quốc tịch theo nơi sinh là vụ United States v. Wong Kim Ark năm 1898. Số là anh Wong Kim Ark được sinh ra ở San Francisco, Mỹ năm 1873 và có cha mẹ đều là người nhập cư từ Trung Quốc. Khi anh Wong lớn lên thì cha mẹ anh về lại Trung Quốc và anh có ghé thăm họ hai lần vào năm 1894 và 1895. Lần đi năm 1894, khi về lại Mỹ thì được nhập cảnh bình thường như công dân, nhưng đến lần năm 1895 thì bị từ chối với lý do không phải công dân Mỹ. Anh kiện. Vụ kiện lên đến Tối cao Pháp viện thì được tuyên rằng, chính quyền không thể từ chối quốc tịch của bất kỳ ai sinh ra trên lãnh thổ Mỹ, theo Tu chính án thứ 14, trừ trường hợp con cái của quan chức ngoại giao.

Kể từ đó, quy chế quốc tịch theo nơi sinh mặc nhiên được thừa nhận và thi hành cho đến nay.

Quy định như vậy thì có bị người nước ngoài lợi dụng để con cái có quốc tịch Mỹ không?

Người nước ngoài có tìm cách lợi dụng không thì không rõ, nhưng rõ ràng có việc người nước ngoài đến Mỹ sinh con và con cái họ nghiễm nhiên có quốc tịch Mỹ. Những người nước ngoài này đến Mỹ theo visa du lịch hoặc làm việc, hoặc nhập cư bất hợp pháp vào Mỹ, rồi sinh con trên đất Mỹ.

Lưu ý là con có quốc tịch Mỹ nhưng bố mẹ thì không. Đến năm 21 tuổi, con cái có thể bảo lãnh cho cha mẹ được định cư tại Mỹ theo diện thẻ xanh (green card), sau một số năm sống ở Mỹ thì có thể nộp đơn xin nhập tịch.

Theo Trung tâm Nghiên cứu Pew, vào năm 2014 có khoảng 11,1 triệu người nhập cư bất hợp pháp sinh sống ở Mỹ. Việt Nam cũng có phần trong số này với khoảng 118 nghìn người, theo một thống kê trong giai đoạn 2010 – 2014.

Kể từ năm 1980, con số trẻ sinh ra trong những gia đình nhập cư bất hợp pháp ngày càng tăng, từ 30 nghìn trẻ năm 1980 lên đến mức kỷ lục 390 nghìn trẻ vào năm 2007, trước khi giảm dần xuống 250 nghìn năm 2016.

Hiện có khoảng 5 triệu trẻ được sinh ra và đang sinh sống trên đất Mỹ có bố mẹ là người nhập cư bất hợp pháp. Những đứa trẻ này, dù có quốc tịch Mỹ, nhưng còn bị gọi là “anchor baby” với hàm ý phân biệt với trẻ có bố mẹ là người Mỹ. Việc dùng cụm từ này hiện nay là một vấn đề nhạy cảm ở Mỹ. Ở Canada thì họ có cụm từ khác là “passport baby”.

Trên thực tế, vấn đề quốc tịch này nằm trong một vấn đề lớn hơn và cực kỳ phức tạp ở Mỹ, đó là chính sách nhập cư. Đảng Cộng hoà của Tổng thống Trump có xu hướng hạn chế nhập cư vì cho rằng người nhập cư gây mất an ninh và lấy đi việc làm của người Mỹ. Đảng Dân chủ chủ trương chào đón người nhập cư và tạo điều kiện cho họ có cơ hội xây dựng một cuộc đời mới trên đất Mỹ, cho rằng nước Mỹ bản chất là đất nước của những người nhập cư và bản thân nền kinh tế Mỹ cũng cần người nhập cư.

Về khái niệm “người nhập cư bất hợp pháp” được nói đến trong bài thì có một số cụm từ thường được dùng song song trong tiếng Anh như “unauthorized immigrants” hay “illegal immigrants”, có khi lại dùng cụm từ “undocumented immigrants” (người nhập cư không có giấy tờ). Ngày nay, cụm “illegal immigrants” ngày càng ít được sử dụng hơn.

Trong giai đoạn 2010 – 2014, có tổng số khoảng 118 nghìn người Việt Nam nhập cư bất hợp pháp sinh sống ở Mỹ. Ảnh: Viện Chính sách Nhập cư.

          This Company Wants to Make the Internet Load Faster      Cache   Translate Page      

The internet went down on February 28, 2017. Or at least that's how it seemed to some users as sites and apps like Slack and Medium went offline or malfunctioned for four hours. What actually happened is that Amazon's enormously popular S3 cloud storage service experienced an outage , affecting everything that depended on it.

It was a reminder of the risks when too much of the internet relies on a single service. Amazon gives customers the option of storing their data in different "availability regions" around the world, and within those regions it has multiple data centers in case something goes wrong. But last year's outage knocked out S3 in the entire North Virginia region. Customers could of course use other regions, or other clouds, as backups, but that involves extra work, including possibly managing accounts with multiple cloud providers.

A San Francisco based startup called Netlify wants to make it easier to avoid these sorts of outages by automatically distributing its customers’ content to multiple cloud computing providers. Users don't need accounts with Amazon, Microsoft Azure, Rackspace, or any other cloud company―Netlify maintains relationships with those services. You just sign-up for Netlify, and it handles the rest.

You can think of the company's core service as a cross between traditional web hosting providers and content delivery networks, like Akamai, that cache content on servers around the world to speed up websites and apps. Netlify has already attracted some big tech names as customers, often to host websites related to open source projects. For example, Google uses Netlify for the website for its infrastructure management tool Kubernetes, and Facebook uses the service for its programming framework React. But Netlify founders Christian Bach and Mathias Biilmann don't want to just be middlemen for cloud hosting. They want to fundamentally change how web applications are built, and put Netlify at the center.

Traditionally, web applications have run mostly on servers. The applications run their code in the cloud, or in a company's own data center, assemble a web page based on the results, and send the result to your browser. But as browsers have grown more sophisticated, web developers have begun shifting computing workloads to the browser. Today, browser-based apps like Google Docs or Facebook feel like desktop applications. Netlify aims to make it easier to build, publish, and maintain these types of sites.

Back to the Static Future

Markus Seyfferth, the COO of Smashing Media, was converted to Netlify's vision when he saw Biilman speak at a conference in 2016. Smashing Media, which publishes the web design and development publication Smashing Magazine and organizes the Smashing Conference, was looking to change the way it managed its roughly 3,200-page website.

Since its inception in 2006, Smashing Magazine had been powered by WordPress, the content management system that runs about 32 percent of the web according to technology survey outfit W3Techs, along with e-commerce tools to handle sales of books and conference tickets and a third application for managing its job listing site. Using three different systems was unwieldy, and the company's servers struggled to handle the site’s traffic, so Seyfferth was looking for a new approach.

When you write or edit a blog post in WordPress or similar applications, the software stores your content in a database. When someone visits your site, the server runs WordPress to pull the latest version from the database, along with any comments that have been posted, and assembles it into a page that it sends to the browser.

Building pages on the fly like this ensures that users always see the most recent version of a page, but it's slower than serving prebuilt "static" pages that have been generated in advance. And when lots of people are trying to visit a site at the same time, servers can bog down trying to build pages on the fly for each visitor, which can lead to outages. That leads companies to buy more servers than they typically need; what’s more, servers can still be overloaded at times.

"When we had a new product on the shop, it needed only a couple hundred orders in one hour and the shop would go down," Seyfferth says.

WordPress and similar applications try to make things faster and more efficient by "caching" content to reduce how often the software has to query the database, but it's still not as fast as serving static content.

Static content is also more secure. Using WordPress or similar content managers exposes at least two "attack surfaces" for hackers: the server itself, and the content management software. By removing the content management layer, and simply serving static content, the overall "attack surface" shrinks, meaning hackers have fewer ways to exploit software.

The security and performance advantages of static websites have made them increasingly popular with software developers in recent years, first for personal blogs and now for the websites for popular open source projects.

In a way, these static sites are a throwback to the early days of the web, when practically all content was static. Web developers updated pages manually and uploaded pre-built pages to the web. But the rise of blogs and other interactive websites in the early 2000s popularized server-side applications that made it possible for non-technical users to add or edit content, without special software. The same software also allowed readers to add comments or contribute content directly to a site.

At Smashing Media, Seyfferth didn't initially think static was an option. The company needed interactive features, to accept comments, process credit cards, and allow users to post job listings. So Netlify built several new features into its platform to make a primarily static approach more viable for Smashing Media.

The Glue in the Cloud

Biilmann, a native of Denmark, spotted the trend back to static sites while running a content management startup in San Francisco, and started a predecessor to Netlify called Bit Balloon in 2013. He invited Bach, his childhood best friend who was then working as an executive at a creative services agency in Denmark, to join him in 2015 and Netlify was born.

Initially, Netlify focused on hosting static sites. The company quickly attracted high-profile open source users, but Biilman and Bach wanted Netlify to be more than just another web-hosting company; they sought to make static sites viable for interactive websites.

Open source programming frameworks have made it easier to build sophisticated applications in the browser . And there's a growing ecosystem of services like Stripe for payments, Auth0 for user authentication, and Amazon Lambda for running small chunks of custom code, that make it possible to outsource many interactive features to the cloud. But these types of services can be hard to use with static sites because some sort of server side application is often needed to act as a middleman between the cloud and the browser.

Biilmann and Bach want Netlify to be that middleman, or as they put it, the "glue" between disparate cloud computing services. For example, they built an e-commerce feature for Smashing Media, now available to all Netlify customers, that integrates with Stripe. It also offers tools for managing code that runs on Lambda.

Smashing Media switched to Netlify about a year ago, and Seyfferth says it's been a success. It's much cheaper and more stable than traditional web application hosting. "Now the site pretty much always stays up no matter how many users," he says. "We'd never want to look back to what we were using before."

There are still some downsides. WordPress makes it easy for non-technical users to add, edit, and manage content. Static site software tends to be less sophisticated and harder to use. Netlify is trying to address that with its own open source static content management interface called Netlify CMS. But it's still rough.

Seyfferth says for many publications, it makes more sense to stick with WordPress for now because Netlify can still be challenging for non-technical users.

And while Netlify is a developer darling today, it's possible that major cloud providers could replicate some of its features. Google already offers a service called Firebase Hosting that offers some similar functionality.

For now, though, Bach and Biilmann say they're just focused on making their serverless vision practical for more companies. The more people who come around to this new approach, the more opportunities there are not just for Netlify, but for the entire new ecosystem.

  • On Tuesday, San Franciscans will vote on Proposition C, a local ballot measure that would tax the city's largest corporations to provide relief in the city's ongoing homelessness crisis.
  • On the eve of the midterm elections, the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco had a message for the people of its city: "Vote for Tomorrow." 
  • The artist in charge of the LED display told The San Francisco Chronicle in May that he would never portray an advertisement or holiday-themed image on it. 
  • However, this is the second time it's happened.  On Halloween, the tower displayed orange flames and The Eye of Sauron, the iconic symbol of the Dark Lord adopted in "The Lord of the Rings." 

On the eve of the midterm elections, the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco had a message for the people of its city: "Vote for Tomorrow."

The 1,070-foot-tall tower is the tallest in San Francisco and was constructed with 11,000 LED lights on the top six floors, which combine to make up a screen that's visible for up to 20 miles away.

Facebook es incapaz de controlar el discurso de odio en Myanmar, según estudio#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000\

La red social admite su error y responsabilidad de no detener el discurso de odio contra los rohingyás, pero argumenta que también existieron otros factores en la ola de violencia.

Tras la presión de diversas organizaciones civiles y de la misma ONU, Facebook le encargó a una organización sin fines de lucro una investigación independiente sobre el uso de su plataforma para detonar una ola de violencia en contra de miles de civiles rohingyás en Myanmar.

De acuerdo con los hallazgos de la Business for Social Responsibility (BSR), la red social se ha convertido en un medio para aquellos que buscan difundir el odio y así causar daño a este sector de la población en el sudeste asiático. Como ha admitido este martes: “…no estábamos haciendo lo suficiente para ayudar a evitar que nuestra plataforma se use para fomentar la división e incitar a la violencia fuera de línea. Estamos de acuerdo en que podemos y debemos hacer más.”

Aunque la empresa de Mark Zuckerberg admite su responsabilidad en cierta medida, ha argumentando que también existieron otros factores que detonaron el conflicto, como un marco legal que no refleja los principios de derechos humanos universales y la tensión cultural, religiosa y étnica. Desde la red social dicen que no pueden lograr solos los cambios necesarios para asegurar que no volverá a suceder una situación similar.

La red social destacó en un post publicado este martes en su newsroom:

A lo largo de este año, hemos invertido mucho en personal, tecnología y además asociaciones con otras entidades para examinar y abordar los malos usos de Facebook en Myanmar, el informe de BSR reconoce que ahora estamos tomando las medidas correctivas correctas.

Por su parte, la organización con sede en San Francisco le brindó diversas recomendaciones para mejorar continuamente en cinco áreas clave con el fin de “ayudar a mitigar el impacto adverso sobre los derechos humanos y maximizar las oportunidades de libertad de expresión, alfabetización digital y desarrollo económico” en Myanmar.

En la actualidad existen aproximadamente 20 millones de usuarios de Facebook en el país en cuestión, donde la red social es utilizada por un gran número de personas como su principal fuente de noticias, incluso antes que los medios tradicionales. Por dicha razón, la red social ha creado un equipo compuesto por 99 habitantes nativos, quienes están dedicados a abordar estos problemas específicos en dicho país.

Los cambios ya están en marcha y dando resultados. Según la plataforma, han tomado medidas en torno a 64.000 publicaciones por violar las políticas de incitación al odio. Sin embargo, Facebook debe prestar especial atención y no dar carpetazo al asunto ya que en un par de años habrá elecciones en Myanmar y no puede volver a ocurrir nuevamente esta ola de violencia.

La red social está en la mira de diversos países por la falta de capacidad para filtrar lo que se publica en ella. Tal es el caso de Cambride Analytica o del Russiagate, en el que la plataforma fue usada para provocar segregación en la población estadounidense durante las pasadas elecciones presidenciales en Estados Unidos. México tampoco ha estado exento de tal situación, donde eliminó más de 10.000 páginas, cuentas y grupos falsos previo a las elecciones que dieron la victoria al presidente electo, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

Pierre Guyotat, Idiotie (Grasset)

 

" Cet Idiotie, qui peut faire suite aux textes dits "autobiographiques" que j'ai publiés de 2007 à 2010 (Gallimard), traite de mon entrée, jadis, dans l'âge adulte, entre ma dix-neuvième et vingt-deuxième année, entre 1959 et 1962. J'y ai choisi ces épisodes en raison de leur retentissement en moi alors et des forces qui s'y manifestent : ma recherche du corps féminin, mon rapport conflictuel à ce qu'on nomme le "réel" , ma tension de tous les instants vers l'Art et vers plus grand que l'humain, ma pulsion de rébellion permanente : contre le père pourtant tellement aimé, contre l'autorité militaire, en tant que conscrit puis soldat dans la guerre d'Algérie, arrêté, inculpé, interrogé, incarcéré puis muté en section disciplinaire. 

Armée rejetée autant qu'attirante -l'ordre, la logique, comme la forme en Art. Mes rébellions d'alors et leurs conséquences : fugue, faim, vol, remords, errances, coups et prisons militaires, manifestations corporelles de cette sorte de refus du réel imposé : on en trouvera ici des scènes marquantes. Drames, intimes, politiques, amitiés, camaraderies, cocasseries, tout y est vécu dans l'élan physique de la jeunesse."

Rachel Kushner, Le Mars Club, traduit de l'anglais par Sylvie Schneiter (Stock)
 

Romy Hall, 29 ans, vient d'être transférée à la prison pour femmes de Stanville, en Californie. Cette ancienne stripteaseuse doit y purger deux peines consécutives de réclusion à perpétuité, plus six ans, pour avoir tué l'homme qui la harcelait. Dans son malheur, elle se raccroche à une certitude : son fils de 7 ans, Jackson, est en sécurité avec sa mère. Jusqu'au jour où l'administration pénitentiaire lui remet un courrier qui fait tout basculer. 

Oscillant entre le quotidien de ces détenues, redoutables et attachantes, et la jeunesse de Romy dans le San Francisco de années 1980, Le Mars Club dresse le portrait féroce d'une société en marge de l'Amérique contemporaine.

Un roman que ActuaLitté avait particulièrement apprécié : « Entre injustice et exploitation, c’est le processus carcéral qui est passé au crible, impitoyable lui-même pour celles et ceux qu’il finira par broyer. C’est également le portrait des femmes seules et pauvres, en Amérique, que l’on retrouve : une situation bien peu enviable. »

From ArtNet News:

When the news broke last week that Thomas Campbell, the former director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, was going to take over the Fine Art Museums of San Francisco—the very museum that the new director of the Met, Max Hollein, left to replace him—there was an immediate reaction in the art world akin to the witnessing of a marvelously witty occurrence, like non-tragic version of an O. Henry story. 

As time wore on, however, some people began to question the feat of museological chiasmus as something less savory. Isn’t that rather convenient—two white men at the apex of power, casually exchanging roles like two gentlemen swapping horses over a game of whist at the club?

Then again, you can’t fault a hiree for being hired, and it’s easy to see why the Fine Art Museums of San Francisco would jump at the chance to bring Campbell on board. A gifted curator who rose from organizing tapestry exhibitions—his specialty—to overseeing the Cloisters to ultimately running the Metropolitan Museum of Art, America’s finest universal museum, for eight years, Campbell brings with him a range of experience, connections, and earned expertise that a much smaller institution like the FAMSF could usually only dream of acquiring. 

At the same time, for the 56-year-old English museum veteran, the San Francisco post offers the possibility of a fresh start, since his rather abrupt departure from the Met in 2017 was marked by allegations of financial overreach, reports of staff mutiny under his watch, and other bitter public airings of laundry rare to the august New York institution...

hm hospitales acreditación qh

El Instituto para el Desarrollo e Integración de la Sanidad (Fundación IDIS) ha celebrado hoy el acto de la quinta edición de entrega de acreditaciones QH (Quality Healthcare), un reconocimiento que valora la excelencia a la calidad asistencial y seguridad de las organizaciones sanitarias, y que consolida a HM Hospitales como Grupo hospitalario de referencia en este sello, que certifica la Asociación Española para la Calidad.

En esta ocasión el Hospital HM Modelo - Maternidad HM Belén de A Coruña ha aumentado su acreditación QH a dos estrellas por lo que crece el reconocimien-to hacia este complejo hospitalario gallego, que es referencia en el seno de la sanidad privada coruñesa y el primer centro hospitalario de HM Hospitales en Galicia en contar con este galardón. La Dra. Pilar Múgica, directora médico terri-torial de HM Hospitales en Galicia asegura que, “esta acreditación es una muestra más de nuestro compromiso con la excelencia tanto en la gestión como en la organización sanitaria no solo hacia nuestros pacientes, sino también hacia la sociedad y el medioambiente”.

Del mismo modo, el Hospital HM Vallés de Alcalá de Henares ha recibido su primera estrella de acreditación QH. El director médico Hospital HM Vallés, Dr. Félix González Calleja, destaca que, “la acreditación QH para nuestro hospital es el reconocimiento de un trabajo bien hecho de forma objetiva y que se refiere en concreto a la implantación de criterios y estándares internacionalmente reco-nocidos que nos ayudan a mejorar en la toma de decisiones, que tiene como fin último ofrecer a nuestros pacientes la máxima calidad asistencial”.
El director de Calidad y Gestión de HM Hospitales, José Tolsdorf, señala que, “este tipo de reconocimiento asegura que de forma objetiva y cuantificable se establece un indicador que reconoce los logros alcanzados y mantenidos por cada hospital. Además, la gran ventaja de la acreditación QH es que es un es-quema flexible que permite plantear tu hoja de ruta de mejora continua en fun-ción de las necesidades operativas”.

En la Comunidad de Madrid los hospitales universitarios HM Montepríncipe, HM Sanchinarro, HM Madrid, HM Nuevo Belén y HM Torrelodones cuentan con la acreditación QH de dos estrellas, y a partir de hoy el Hospital HM Vallés tiene en su haber una estrella. Además de los centros ya nombrados, el Hospital HM San Francisco de León también cuenta con acreditación QH de una estrella. En 2015 este centro leonés se convirtió en el primer hospital de Castilla y León en recibir este sello de calidad asistencial.

Ocho centros de HM Hospitales

De esta forma, son ocho los centros hospitalarios de HM Hospitales que disfru-tan de este reconocimiento. Este hecho es una prueba del compromiso del Gru-po con ofrecer la más alta calidad asistencial a sus pacientes, que en este caso se traduce en que este sello de calidad es un ejercicio de transparencia y com-promiso en la excelencia en la gestión como organización sanitaria. “Este estándar es ya muy alto y muestra la consolidación en la cultura de la excelencia de HM Hospitales”, indica José Tolsdorf.

Eso sí, HM Hospitales, de acuerdo con su filosofía corporativa de mejora conti-nua, planea incorporar nuevos centros a este sello hasta que todos los hospita-les que conforman la red asistencial de la compañía formen parte de la acredita-ción QH. “Estas acreditaciones y certificaciones son un ejercicio de transparen-cia y compromiso en la excelencia en la gestión como organización sanitaria, no sólo hacia nuestros clientes sino también hacia la sociedad y el medioambiente”, asegura José Tolsdorf.

Uno de los puntos fuertes de estos reconocimientos reside en que las acredita-ciones, en sus distintos niveles, son otorgadas por un comité independiente. Este valora atributos como la excelencia, la implantación de un sistema de calidad progresivo y continuado en el tiempo o que se hayan obtenido las certificaciones necesarias para aportar las máximas garantías a sus procesos.

 


          This startup wants employers to stop giving its workers lavish perks and start helping them pay their student loans      Cache   Translate Page      

goodly_.JPG

  • This April, a San Francisco-based startup called Goodly launched as a part of Y Combinator's summer batch.
  • Goodly aims to help companies help their employees pay off their student loans, by making regular matching contributions — kind of like a 401(k).
  • Greg Poulin, co-founder and CEO, was motivated to start Goodly because of his own experiences in paying off $80,000 in student debt.
  • Poulin believes that the budget for common company perks such as gym memberships and massage chairs can be better used for helping employees pay off student loans.

While Greg Poulin, co-founder and CEO of Goodly, was attending Dartmouth, his father passed away unexpectedly. On top of the emotional toll, he also ended up having to borrow $80,000 in student loans to pay his tuition.

Poulin has since moved to San Francisco, the thriving-but-pricey hub of the startup world, and he’s still chipping away at his loans with a monthly payment of about $900 a month. Frustrated by his experiences, he founded Goodly, a platform for companies to offer employees assistance with their student loans as a benefit.

Goodly allows companies to make a monthly contribution to their employees’ student loans, similar to how companies often match 401(k) contributions. Based in San Francisco, Goodly was founded just this April, launched with a $120,000 seed investment as a part of the summer batch from famed startup program Y Combinator.

“Most employers don’t know that student loan benefits exist. It’s both a challenge and an opportunity for us,” Poulin told Business Insider. “It’s helped us completely define a new category of benefits.”

Companies often offer perks like gym memberships, massage chairs and snacks, but the money can be better allocated to helping employees pay student loans, Poulin says. That way, student loan repayment won’t be a large expense for companies. This benefit, he says, could help with both recruiting and retention.

“The problem is those employees are saddled with crippling student loan debt,” Poulin said. “Gym memberships aren’t going to cut it when it comes to recruiting employees.”

Hemant Verma, co-founder and CTO of Goodly, also had to pay off debts from his own education in India.

“This is a massive problem for people,” Verma told Business Insider. “It’s the biggest problem our generation is facing...This was a mission we were energized with.”

The scale of the problem

Today, 70% of college students graduate with debt, and over 44 million Americans collectively owe $1.5 trillion in student debt. An American Student Assistance survey reported that 76% of respondents said student loan repayment benefit would be a deciding or contributing factor to accepting a job offer.

The average college graduate has $37,172 in student loans, by some estimates, up $20,000 from 13 years ago. It makes sense that the demand for student loan benefits is rising.

“For millennials, they bear the grunt of student loans,” Poulin said. “It’s an issue where we see people of all backgrounds.”

This could potentially impact diversity and inclusion at companies as well, as student loans disproportionately affect women and people of color. For example, research shows that women carry two-thirds of the nation’s student debt load, and that African American students are four times more likely to default on their student loans than their white peers.

Poulin has seen Goodly’s customers make contributions of $25 to $300 a month to repaying their employees’ student loans. On average, employers contribute $100 a month.

“We’ve had companies of all sizes reach out to us,” Poulin said. “We’ve been really blown away by the interest of companies we’ve seen. It’s not surprising when so many are leaving the company in debt. This is a problem they’ve struggled with. It’s exciting to see companies that are working to proactively help their employees solve this challenge.”

Get started early

For Poulin, one thing that has helped him was making bi-weekly payments instead of monthly payments.

“Over the course of the year, you’ll make an additional payment,” Poulin said. “It could shave off two years over the repayment period.”

Still, student loan repayments can impede employees from making future investments such as graduate school, buying a house, marriage and retirement. Poulin sees investing in retirement as his biggest challenge, especially when he first started working after graduation.

“I was contributing very little, if at all,” Poulin said. “Student loan debt is a major barrier. When you delay contributing to the 401(k), there’s a large compounding effect.”

Having faced the issue of paying off student debt themselves, Poulin and Verma hope Goodly can help people slash the amount of time it takes to pay off loans.

“We want to make student loans obsolete,” Verma said. “Student loans get a bad rep for most people. In terms of investments, it’s still a good thing basically. You’re able to upgrade your life. Our goal is not to get rid of it completely, but make sure you can pay it off as fast as possible.”

Desde las páginas de Naiz traemos a ustedes este texto en el que sus autores piden se deje a Altsasu en paz de una vez por todas:

Camino Mendiluze y Gerardo del Olmo | Exalcaldes de Altsasu


Ultimamente, cuando oímos hablar a Albert Rivera un escalofrío recorre nuestro cuerpo. Cada vez es más joseantoniano. Las personas que, por edad, estudiamos aquella «Formación de espíritu nacional» y tuvimos que leernos, por narices, las obras del fundador de Falange Española nos acordaremos bien. Como él, cada vez que abre la ventana o está en un mitin, ante sí, sólo ve españoles, le da lo mismo que sea un Botín o un obrero de la fundición, pero ¿con quién se irá a comer? Estamos seguros de que en sus mítines se traga el «Arriba España» porque gritarlo, no sería políticamente muy correcto. Y es este tipo y los de Vox, que, junto a Pablo Casado, parecen sacados de la Enciclopedia Álvarez, los que van venir a nuestro pueblo a «defender la libertad» y a «dejar claro que a los servidores públicos, a los guardias civiles y a los policías se les respeta». Pues bien, ante todo esto, no podemos callarnos y tenemos la necesidad de decir unas cuantas cosas.

El respeto uno se lo gana, se hace merecedor de él, y aquí, en Altsasu, la Guardia Civil no lo ha hecho y en una gran mayoría del pueblo siguen creando los mismos sentimientos que tendría Federico García Lorca cuando escribió aquello de «Tienen, por eso no lloran/ de plomo las calaveras/ Con sus almas de charol/ vienen por la carretera./ Jorobados y nocturnos/ por donde animan ordenan/ silencios de goma oscura y miedos de fina arena». Que no son precisamente sentimientos de respeto ¿verdad?

Vendrán a Altsasu y montarán su numerito de apoyo a la Guardia Civil, pero no se acordarán de manifestarle su respeto al señor Iguzkiza muerto a tiros por la Guardia Civil en el año 34 y cuyo recuerdo honramos en una sencilla placa en la calle Gartzia Ximenez, ni se preguntarán qué es el monumento que hay frente a la sociedad Zubeztia, ni subirán a Otsaportillo, ni irán a Sorozarreta a preguntarse por qué todavía tenemos muertos en las cunetas…

No se preocuparán por las muchas personas torturadas y encarceladas durante el franquismo y su «modélica transición». Probablemente homenajeen a los torturadores. El Duque de Ahumada, en sus normas para el cuerpo, habla del «honor» de la Guardia Civil. Nosotros creemos que, una persona, también los y las guardias civiles, pierden el honor cuando mienten, torturan, tergiversan o se aprovechan de su fuerza.

Vienen a nuestro pueblo a utilizarnos para conseguir votos en España. Por supuesto pintarán a nuestros jóvenes encarcelados como unos energúmenos llenos de odio y lo dirán en todas las televisiones que de nuevo nos inundarán. Sin embargo, la gente de aquí, como muchísimos más en todo el Estado español, sabemos que nuestro pueblo, una vez más, es utilizado en una causa política vergonzosa y que como consecuencia tenemos a siete chavales en la cárcel injustamente. Tres de ellos llevan más de dos años, por unos «delitos» que en cualquier pueblo del Estado se hubieran castigado con una simple multa e incluso los propios guardias civiles también habrían sido castigados. ¡Los queremos en casa ya!

Vienen buscando gresca. Seamos inteligentes y no se la demos, por mucho que nos lo pida el cuerpo.

Dicen que defenderán la «españolidad» de Navarra y se rechazará su anexión al País Vasco. Como si los navarros y navarras no supiésemos quién somos, Navarra no necesita anexionarse al País Vasco. Navarra es una parte de Euskal Herria. Aquí yo le diría como le dije al señor Felipe González en el aeropuerto de Buenos Aires. «No soy española, mi pasaporte sí lo es. Yo soy vasca, de Navarra» y les recordaríamos que Francisco de Jaso y Jauregizar, conocido en todo el mundo como San Francisco Javier, viajó a la India y a Japón con salvoconducto portugués porque se negó a pedirle a Fernando, para nosotros “El Falsario” para ellos “El Católico”, un pasaporte español. El santo más santo que tiene Navarra nunca admitió ser español. En Navarra hay muchos beaumonteses, descendientes del conde de Lerín, pero también quedamos muchas y muchos descendientes de agramonteses que, como Pedro “Mariscal de Navarra”, aunque nos encierren de por vida en cualquier castillo de Simancas seguiremos diciendo que no somos españoles.

Navarra será lo que los navarros y navarras decidamos. No necesitamos Riveras, Abascales o Casados que vengan a imponernos lo que debemos ser. Admitiremos, eso sí, a toda persona que, de buena fe, quiera venir a conocernos, a hablar con nosotros y nosotras, a pasarlo bien… a vivir…

De ninguna manera vamos a admitir que se nos manipule y se nos denigre, y… dejémonos de historias… ¡a eso vienen!

Argi eta ozen: utzi Altsasu bakean!

¿Y si no fue así?
¿Y si fueron de otro modo las cosas?
Maldije la hora y el momento en que te vi venir
Así hermosa, así fanática
a la cabeza en la falange de los longobardos
y atronaba la multitud, salve augusta…
mas tú veías hacia el brasil
armarse los navíos de los aqueos
cambiar banderas
los fogoneros en huelga en el malecón
vagar tozudos errando
con flecos de la cabellera de Agamenón
en puñados
en busca de burdeles
conversando sentados en el atracadero
con néstor, san gerásimo, notis botsaris
de la resurrección de la raza…
esa noche ocurrió el desastre
juraron todos,
algunos por su madre clitemnestra
otro por el nombre de su hijita
otro por el soldado desconocido
otro… cómo voy a acordarme ahora
pero el último
ah, dios mío, qué momento fue aquel… (2)
.................................................................
.................................................................

Sin conspiraciones
así como tarde de sábado santo
me pusieron por primera vez la cruz de sangre
del cordero desollado de pascua,
horrorosa marca entre los ojos
entre dos mares
por un lado el egeo por el otro el jonio
y en el medio la señal
sangrienta.

¿Cómo encontrar, ya, calma? al otro día
llegó el duro mensaje: tu cadáver
aplastado como el tren que cayó en la quebrada
lo encontraron pescadores mongoles en baikal
flotando al lado de una cesta;
entonces acabada ya santa sofía
acabado mesolongui
acabado notis bótsaris
los argonautas se casaron en brasil,
dispersaron los cabellos de agamenón
a los cinco vientos
quemaron las naves
y no volvieron a hablar de monemvasiá.

En la noche… ¿qué digo?
cada noche
todas las noches
claridad bárbara
claridad de los longobardos
claridad como pulpo seco
frente a frente a un sol mayor
curtidor (4)
...........................................................

Los crucé todavía jurando una vez más,
no importa…
raza de perros…
aqueos porfiados, semillas turcas,
francolevantinos:
tiraron de los rodrigones
arrojaron otra vez pólvora al suelo
se encendieron todos como antorchas
(qué sed esta de bombazos, dios mío)
y cuando impusieron su propia voluntad
empezaron una  ronda bajo la ventana del papa
con polifemo a la cabeza
saltando desde guadalajara hasta metsovo
que se te corta el aliento.
anda a sostenerte tú ahora,
zumbaban los atabales desde brasil hasta baikal
chirriaban los clarines desde noruega hasta
nueva caledonia
y nuestro astro, todo alma, se lanzó cuarenta varas adelante
así te despedazamos
ogresa
claridad…

Mis manos cruzadas hélice
en la popa de arájova
el gobernalle entre tus ojos
las escotillas abiertas
los cañones listos y las bombardas
mi abuelo, marino de horacio nelson
artillero, juramentado en frigia
con su martini y bastante pólvora
de dimitsana
acechando desde la ventana de navarino
este claridad que se escabulle hace años ya…
¿y que fuera sólo eso?
¿los sospechosos proyectos del arqueólogo holandés?
¿los astutos ojos del profanador de santos,
dando vueltas en las barriadas pobres
vendiendo, digamos, amuletos
espiando las fortificaciones de nuestra casa?
¿las cañoneras del mar?
¿la lanza de san Jorge?
son para que las cuente uno ya estas cosas?
¿son para reclutarlas?
¿son para confiarles armas automáticas?
¿digan ustedes:
dónde vieron un egipto arrepentido?
¿un vencedor jubilado, un pastor bizantino,
un godo mercachifle
un guiñapo?
¿un obispo promotor?
a fin de  cuentas, ¿dónde vieron mis manos cruzadas
hélice en la popa de arájova?

Ah… arájova, la rara porcelana minoica
del omóplato del profeta Daniel,
estaba escrito que adivinase
la desgracia de hoy
la continuación en el cementerio
los suplementos nocturnos extraordinarios
el nudo ciego del consejo de ministros;
hablaba claramente a través de todo eso de esa,
de la claridad
que venía en línea recta desde la raza de los atridas
y ahora hace años que se escabulle
en lejanas plantaciones de cacao
descalza y despeinada,
una vez en cilicia tejedora
otra en san francisco de mesera
en bukovina lavandera
o puta en vladivostok,
hasta que una noche el mar, otra vez el mar,
trajo su cadáver hasta githeio
entre piedras pómez japonesas
limones podridos de siria
o carcomidos mascarones de las proas de los fenicios
veintisiete años de viaje por el mar abierto…

Lo que ocurría entre tanto por el otro lado,
es lo que hace que el asunto sea más trágico;
ya van a entender ustedes
que en esa torre maniota
con almenas que miran hacia los cafés
donde se pudren colgados los mapas militares
de la II división de los pelasgos
junto a las armaduras de los isaurios
las barajas
y las tazas sucias
en esta torre maniota digo,
nuestras venas parían sin tregua
no cabían ya en ese lugar
crujían los cimientos de mistrá por la flebitis.

¡Ay! Abuelo, ¿cómo te quedaste impasible
oteando desde la ventana de navarino
la frigia  desmechada,
mientras en los cafés que estaban a tu espalda
el tahúr ganaba con la maña
que aprendió en los mapas de los pelasgos?
ahora el eurotas se trasladó
entremedio de nuestras ventanas;
hacía falta un esbozo de acueducto
para conservar el rostro seco del antepasado.

Finalmente, también eso ocurrió:
un don nadie
un despreciable funcionario de impuestos
exigió la expulsión de los isaurios
la liquidación de la torre maniota
y en paralelo el sabotaje del minstro
a la industrialización del país;
exige, incluso, la exhumación de la claridad,
la autopsia más meticulosa
acorde a los nuevos antecedentes
que entregó el omóplato del profeta Daniel
encontrado en los cimientos de una antigua casa de arájoba,
finalmente solicita enterrarla
con honores de primer ministro en funciones…
¿qué haremos ahora?

El timón
entre tus ojos
eso lo hizo todo…

          New update to watchOS released to fix bricking issue in Apple Watches      Cache   Translate Page      

San Francisco: Apple has released a new update to the watchOS, fixing bricking issues in Apple Watch that made the device unusable after users attempted to install the previous update.

The new watchOS 5.1.1 comes with over 70 new emojis released with iOS 12.1, new full-screen colour watch-faces and support for group FaceTime audio for up to 32 people, The Verge reported on Monday.

The previous update -- watchOS 5.1 -- that was released last week, was pulled out quickly after users reported that the update caused issues to the Apple Watch during the installation of the update.

"Apple Watch owners can rest assured that today's update is specifically built not to brick their devices," the report added.

Since Apple's smart-watch does not plug into a computer, affected users had no options other than calling Apple support and wait for the company to replace their device.

The issue, however, seems limited to the brand new Apple Watch Series 4 devices.

Previously, a bug that was discovered in Apple Watch Series 4 was causing the device to crash and get stuck on re-boot loops, the media had reported.

Apple launched the next generation of Apple Watch in September alongside iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR at an event in California with improved health features and edge-to-edge display with smaller bezels.

The GPS+Cellular variant of the watch starts from Rs 49,900 and GPS-only model costs around Rs 40,900 in India.

          AMD Announces Zen 4 Microarchitecture Under Development      Cache   Translate Page      

At its Next Horizon event in San Francisco, AMD announced the fourth iteration of its Zen microarchitecture. The Zen 4 is currently in development, so the company does not share many details about it right now.

Right now, the company is sampling its codenamed Rome CPUs based on Zen 2 microarchitecture and made using TSMC’s first-generation 7 nm manufacturing technology (N7). After that, AMD plans to release a processor based on its Zen 3 architecture and these chips will be made using TSMC’s N7+ fabrication process that will take advantage of EUV lithography. Since Zen 4 microarchitecture is still in design phase, chances are that processors on its base will be made using a more advanced node, so think 5 nm, but keep in mind that any guesses today are speculations at best.

At its event AMD implied that the first CPUs based on its Zen 3 microarchitecture will ship in 2020, so it is natural to expect Zen 4 to reach actual products in 2021 or later. As for what to expect from the new microarchitecture, the company naturally promised higher performance and performance per watt when compared to prior generations.

Previously AMD has only discussed Zen 2 and Zen 3 microarchitectures, yet it is not surprising that the company will keep evolving its successful design in the coming years.

This is a breaking news. We are updating the news story with more details.

          Intel Architecture Event Announced: December 11th      Cache   Translate Page      

On the back of a series of recent announcements regarding Intel’s future product line and portfolio, Intel has disclosed to us that it will be holding a forward-looking Architecture Summit/Event in a few weeks. The event will be an exclusively small affair, with only a few press invited, but an opportunity for Intel to discuss its future vision for the next few months with engineers and technical fellows set to give some detailed presentations.

One of the most frequent requests we have put to Intel over the recent months is for a return to an Intel that offers more information. In previous years, Intel would dive deep into its product portfolio and its architecture designs in order to showcase its engineering talent and prowess. This often happened at the awesome annual Intel Developer Forum, a yearly event held in the heart of San Francisco, but since it was disbanded a couple of years ago, the level of detail in each subsequent launch has been agonizingly minimal. For an engineering company that used to proudly present its technical genius on a stage, in detail, to suddenly become so very insular about its R&D raised a lot of questions. It would appear our persistence is paying off, and Intel is going to do something about it.

Details on the content of the Intel Architecture Summit/Event are slim at this point, as invites are slowly being handed out. At this point we are not immediately aware whether Intel intends to have an embargo. In the past at these sort of events, some of the information became almost immediately available, while some of the meatier details had longer embargo times to allow for the press to get to grips with the information and ask questions and write articles. When Intel discussed the Skylake design in detail before it hit the shelves, there was a short lead time. This event is likely to be along the same lines.

At this point we do not know exactly what Intel will be discussing – the only thing we’ve been told is that it will be ‘update’ with Intel’s architects and technical fellows focusing on architecture. This could extend into CPU, GPU, AI, and everything in-between, and if we’re lucky, manufacturing. Given that Cascade Lake is a known part at this point, it would be difficult to see Intel discussing more on the CPU side unless they have an ace in the design we don’t already know about. A far more interesting topic would be on the GPU side, assuming that Raja Koduri and his team have something to say. We already know that the Nervana Neural Network Processor is due out in 2019, so there could be some detail to discuss there as well. An outside possibility is Intel talking 10nm. One can hope.

I’ll be attending for AnandTech. I hope this ends up being a good event, so that there are more like it in the future.

cefconnect dot com is a great free resource for research. Don't do anything with closed-end funds until you understand the distinction between net asset value (NAV) and market price. People are afraid of many of these funds because of rising rates and trade wars and lots of bad stuff that can still happen. Your mileage will vary. Funds that meet the criteria I described: FAX: 10.6% distribution rate, -14.38% discount to NAV - Emerging market debt AWP: 10.95% distribution rate, -14.36% discount to NAV - Real estate stocks Other interesting stuff: BIF: 3.76% distribution rate, -17.35% discount to NAV - Berkshire, Cisco, Wells Fargo - brand name large caps EIA: 4.78% dist. -15.5% discount to NAV. California Muni Bonds. (Yes, still tax free on the income even if a closed end fund.) These funds have expensive management fees and some will have done better with a FAANG basket or their Vanguard index funds or whatever their uncle told them to buy. That said, if you want equity that barfs out income, and that you can sell without engaging a realtor, here you go. I am not saying this is the bottom for any of these, but if you buy when people freak out and the NAV discount expands, you improve your chances.

          Did the Fledgling United Nations Have a Legitimate Mandate in 1947 to Partition Palestine?      Cache   Translate Page      
It is a fact that is hardly credible, but a fact nevertheless, that the vast majority of people, whether Jewish, Christian or Muslim, have now little or no idea of the political machinations that brought about the establishment of an Israeli state in Palestine – a region that was predominately Muslim Arab for well over a thousand years. A period over which there had only ever been a minority Jewish presence. That fact is verified as follows – the documented proof being in the public domain, available to anyone at the touch of a key.
The present United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 50 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights. It replaced the ineffective pre-war League of Nations, after WW2.
On 25 April 1945, the United Nations Conference on International Organization began in San Francisco. Fifty nations were represented who signed and ratified the Charter of the United Nations on 24 October 1945, and the UN was officially formed.  [Those 50 signatories, however, have to be seen in the context of the 193 UN Member states that in 2018 now represent the entire global population i.e. fifty is just over 25% of the present total].
On 29 November 1947, the resolution to recommend to all current Members of the then fledgling United Nations the adoption and implementation, with regard to the future government of Palestine, of the Plan of Partition with Economic Union, was put to a vote in the UN General Assembly.  The result was 33 to 13 in favour of the resolution, with 10 abstentions. That is 33 out of a current total of 193 UN member States i.e. 17%.   (Britain, of course, abstained).
Barely six months later, on May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel, and U.S. President Harry S. Truman unexpectedly recognized the new nation on the same day. However, that does not tell the full story. President Truman was not at all in favour of a Jewish state in Palestine and was heavily leaned upon by B’nai Brith International, a powerful Jewish service organisation in America.
In the event, Truman was persuaded to change his opinion. And that decision was of vital importance because a handful of U.N. Member States would inevitably follow America’s lead as a result of intense Zionist lobbying. Consequently, it was in fact only a tiny minority of the global population that actually voted to impose a Jewish state in the midst of the Muslim Middle East.
If the same resolution were to be put to the vote today before a UN that now genuinely represents the entire global population, the result would be vastly different from that in 1947/8. And Gaza would now be a thriving sea-port on the eastern Mediterranean with an international airport, a strong fishing industry and operating as a popular tourist destination as the gateway to the Middle East and its hinterland.
Instead, we have nearly two million civilians under an inhuman siege from an occupying army that is armed and funded by both the US and the UK; that has blockaded essential supplies including electricity for over eleven years in a bid to starve an entire civilian population into submission and effect a regime change.
It’s a story of raw colonial power, political greed and personal ambition through the subjugation of an entire people by an internationally armed and funded, military occupation and illegal settlement, in open violation of the international Geneva Conventions on Human Rights.
In 2018, supported by a US Republican Congress (and a compliant UK Conservative Government), it continues as the spark that will eventually cause a devastating war – unless there is a paradigm shift in policy.  That seems most unlikely under the current Trump White House that is already intent on waging an American war against Iran by deliberately bankrupting the Iranian oil industry against the unanimous will of Europe, China, India and most of the international community.  It’s a very dangerous game by a dangerous man.

          Comment on 40 Percent More Homes on the Market in San Francisco by Anonoly      Cache   Translate Page      
It’s beyond me why people think there will not a drop in housing prices this time. The early 90s saw a 10% drop; early 2000s just over a 10% drop; and the Great Recession a drop of almost 30%. We are ending a period of historically low interest rates, a massive run up in tech company valuations, tax cuts to squeeze every last drop of this historically long bull market, potential grid lock in DC post midterm elections, and the most supply the SF housing market has seen in a long time. There abolsultey will be a drop in housing prices in the 2019-2020 time frame; and I would estimate at least a 10% drop.

One has to be careful with home value estimates. Be them from Refin or anyone else. I live on Mt. Davidson - across from Midtown terrace. I can find any number of listing where the Redin estimate is showing price gains. 43 Molimo per Redfin is up 66K since it sold this past spring. My home was listed as up 100K in September per a Caldwell Banker estimate. It is wrong - the figure was skewed by several recent sales in my area. Homes on paper like mine but with many interior upgrades that my home does not have.Things are not getting nasty. They are slowing, but YOY per CS the median price is still up significantly. Though that figure is slowly dropping now as new monthly CS numbers are rolled out. It seems as if the YOY numbers for SF/the Bay Area will continue to drop for this year and into next year. Could the median price go negative? Not too likely but, if it does, it won't be by much. Even as Redfin shows gains on homes in Miraloma Park, the semi-flip at 44 Molimo just went pending after 43 days on the market. Back in June or so the days on the market number for this area was around 15 and has been rising slowly. it was 21 in August .Definitely a slowdown is upon us.

HOARDING OF GOLD AND SILVER

JAMES 5:1-3
1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

REVELATION 18:10,17,19
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.(IN 1 HR THE STOCK MARKETS WORLDWIDE WILL CRASH)
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

EZEKIEL 7:19
19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed:(CONFISCATED) their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.

LUKE 2:1-3
1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
2  (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3  And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

REVELATION 13:16-18
16 And he(THE FALSE POPE WHO DEFECTED FROM THE CHRISTIAN FAITH) causeth all,(IN THE WORLD ) both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:(MICROCHIP IMPLANT)

Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast:(WORLD LEADER) for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.(6-6-6) A NUMBER SYSTEM (6006006)OR(60020202006)(SOME KIND OF NUMBER IMPLANTED IN THE MICROCHIP THAT TELLS THE WORLD DICTATOR AND THE NEW WORLD ORDER THAT YOU GIVE YOUR TOTAL ALLIGIENCE TO HIM AND NOT JESUS)(ITS AN ETERNAL DECISION YOU MAKE)(YOU CHOOSE YOUR OWN DESTINY)(YOU TAKE THE DICTATORS NAME OR NUMBER UNDER YOUR SKIN,YOUR DOOMED TO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND TORMENTS FOREVER,NEVER ENDING MEANT ONLY FOR SATAN AND HIS ANGELS,NOT HUMAN BEINGS).OR YOU REFUSE THE MICROCHIP IMPLANT AND GO ON THE SIDE OF KING JESUS AND RULE FOREVER WITH HIM ON EARTH.YOU CHOOSE,ITS YOUR DECISION.

1 KINGS 10:13-14
13  And king Solomon gave unto the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, beside that which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she turned and went to her own country, she and her servants.
14  Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred threescore and six talents of gold,

GENESIS 49:16-17
16  Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.
17  Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.

REVELATION 6:5-6
5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.(A DAYS WAGES FOR A LOAF OF BREAD)

12  Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13  And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14  And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD.

Tienes razón, pero sólo en parte.
La situación de los rusos no es mejor ahora que durante la Unión Soviética. Creo que el único país de la URSS que mejoró desde entonces es Kazajistán.

En China gobierna el partido comunista, y aunque China ya no es un país comunista, ha sido a partir de ese régimen que China se está convirtiendo en la primera potencia económica del mundo. O sea que, no es verdad que todo lo que tocan lo destruyen.

Y la esperanza de vida en Cuba es similar a la de EEUU, a pesar de que, Cuba es un país del tercer mundo y EEUU es la primera potencia económica del mundo.

I voted sticker

Hello! Here's what's happening on Wednesday.

1. It's the Midterms 2018 and it's happening LIVE: Democrats were projected to take control of the House of Representatives, and Republicans are projected to hold onto their majority control of the US Senate in the new year. 

2. Former US Treasury secretary Hank Paulson warned of an "economic iron curtain" if the US and China can't find a way to get alongA growing majority at home now see China not just as a strategic challenge to US interests but as a country whose rise has come at America's expense.

3. China says it has new surveillance camera technology that can recognize you just from how you walk."Gait recognition" technology has reportedly already been rolled out and is an improvement over facial recognition.

4. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's trip with a senior North Korean envoy has been postponed. The State Department mentioned scheduling in a short statement but offered no reason for the delay.

5. French police have reportedly arrested six over a plot to attack President Emmanuel MacronThis is just days after he likened Europe's extreme right to Nazis.

6. More than 200 mass graves containing thousands of bodies have been found in areas of Iraq previously under ISIS control, according to the UN. The deaths occurred due to systemic violence which may amount to war crimes and genocide, the UN has said. 

7. Some Saudis are calling for a boycott of Amazon to hit back at Jeff Bezos in response to The Washington Post's coverage of Jamal Khashoggi's murderBezos owns the Washington Post, where murdered Khashoggi was previously a columnist. 

8. Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff asked Elon Musk if his Boring Company could come to San Francisco and dig some tunnelsMusk nonchalantly agreed to Benioff's request.

9. US President Donald Trump rushed more than 5,000 troops to the border to lay razor wire. The wire was laid in preparation for the arrival of migrant caravans consisting of potentially thousands of people from across Latin America.

10. Overwhelmed passengers abandoned an Indonesian flight crammed with two tons of a notoriously smelly tropical fruit. Passengers refused to share the flight to Jakarta with some two tons of durian squeezed into the cargo hold.

Mybeerbuzz .com Highlight Anchor Brewing Merry Christmas 2018A big thank you to Anchor Brewing for the cool gift box and early Christmas present.  My excitement for today’s beer began back in July when I brought you the first peek at the label.  Now granted July is way too early to start craving holiday beers, but this beer is honestly so special that I think it’s worth looking forward to even during summer.Mybeerbuzz .com Highlight Anchor Brewing Merry Christmas 2018

If you’re not familiar, Anchor Brewing produces a beer they call Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2018 (aka Our Special Ale 2018) and the beer is released every November to help begin your holiday celebration.  Each year the base recipe is altered to include a secret ingredient or two, and each year they somehow manage to make the beer taste unique and different, but still very much the same.  The malt, hops and dry hopping are listed as “Secret” but each year we still try our best to figure out what they did.Mybeerbuzz .com Highlight Anchor Brewing Merry Christmas 2018

I also get excited every year to see what the label will look like and what tree will be featured on the label.  Each year artist Jim Stit hand draws the label and each year it features a different variety of tree.  For 2018, 2018 Merry Christmas & Happy New Year (aka Our Special Ale) will feature the Korean Pine Tree from the botanical gardens north of San Francisco (pinus koraiensis) and as always, the label looks great (especially with the new red border.)Mybeerbuzz .com Highlight Anchor Brewing Merry Christmas 2018

2018 is the 44th release of this beer, and I’ve been lucky enough to have tasted quite a few years…and while I didn’t get my hands on the original 1975 beer, I’ve been fortunate to be able to compare flavors all the way back into the 1980’s.

2018 Merry Christmas & Happy New Year (aka Our Special Ale) pours a rich mahogany brown with loads of complex spices in the nose.  I really liked the roasty complexity of the aroma and the earthy resinous notes as we poured.  This beer has a soft mouthfeel with some really likeable roasted malt flavors up front.  I like the dark fruit and spice flavors that work their way in after your first few sips, and the finish is clean and a bit hoppy.  As the beer warms, I started to taste a bit of chocolate, cinnamon and even roasted coffee with a really pleasant complexity and depth.  The spices linger on your tongue and overall the beer is well balanced and really drinkable (once again).Mybeerbuzz .com Highlight Anchor Brewing Merry Christmas 2018

2018 Merry Christmas & Happy New Year (aka Our Special Ale) is available starting Nov 1st in 12oz and even big 50.7oz bottles so be sure to track some down for yourself.  You should also be aware that Anchor OSA ages really nicely, so if you can, set some aside for next year…and when you do taste this beer, be sure to let us know what YOU think.

          Donald Trump Is Awakening People, Left and Right      Cache   Translate Page

Donald Trump Is Awakening People, Left and Right

An Interview with Dr. Chuck Baldwin, Moral Majority and Christian Coalition Pioneer, and Constitutional Party Presidential Candidate in 2008

“Either we will have an awakening — or a wake.” — Swami Beyondananda

In the summer of 2015, I was waiting to board the Larkspur Ferry to take me to San Francisco for a Giants game. In the waiting area, there was a huge TV screen tuned to CNN. Donald Trump was on, and the sound was off.

As I watched Trump’s gesticulation, facial expressions, and fist pumping, I looked at a fellow passenger, and we both said it at the same time — Adolf Hitler.

Now more than three years later, I have seen nothing to make me think otherwise. What was clear to me then is even clearer now. What I was looking at was a megalomaniacal sociopath, who would do anything and say anything to benefit himself, and who would ultimately destroy whatever he touched. I saw a pathological liar and demagogue, with no respect for the rule of law — or the rule of love.

While we have seen “dishonest” politicians before, and those involved in deep, dark misdoings, what I was looking at was someone entirely different and more sinister — someone who had the mindset and the chutzpah to make himself dictator. You might laugh at this individual who has been parodied and caricatured as a bumbling fool. They laughed at Hitler too. While Donald Trump is no “Hitler” in the sense that he has no overriding mission or ideology, his rhetoric landed with the same kinds of ordinary folks who supported Hitler.

At the Unrig the System conference in New Orleans this past February, I met a number of (oxymoron alert) “moderate Republicans” who saw the clear and present danger not just in Trump, but in the Vichy Republicans in Congress blindly following him. I met Richard Painter, a former Bush administration official who has officially changed parties and became a Democrat running for the Senate in Minnesota. Since that time he has been joined by Republicans Steve Schmidt and most recently Max Boot, who exhorted moderate Republicans to vote Democrat this year in an attempt to stop that other “boot” — Jack Boot — from having control of all three branches of government and establishing a de facto fascist regime.

Something that has been both puzzling and vexing to most observers, however, is how so many Evangelical Christians have fallen into lockstep behind Trump, despite the man’s — to put it too gently — “moral failings.”

Our guest on Wiki Politiki this week has the perspective and background to speak to this issue. Dr. Chuck Baldwin is a conservative Christian minister, a disciple of Jerry Falwell and a founder of the Christian Coalition. After becoming a Republican in 1980 to support Ronald Reagan, he left the party during the George W. Bush presidency to join Ron Paul’s Constitution Party. Without compromising his conservative ideas — he is a Second Amendment advocate who believes in “open carry” — he offers his view of how and why the majority of his cohorts have taken the wrong road, and have become in his words “infatuated with” Donald Trump, whom he sees as an enemy of freedom, and everything the United States stands for.

On this very significant Election Day, which will — rightly or not — be an up or down vote for Donald Trump, tune into this highly-unusual interview and you’ll be encouraged that the “great upwising” and awakening is occurring on all sides.

          Was Vatican Council II Magisterial ? : there is an objective error in the text and on this point at least the Council could not be guided by the Holy Spirit      Cache   Translate Page

OBJECTIVE MISTAKE IN 1949 LETTER REPEATED AT VATICAN COUNCIL II
There was an objective mistake made in the Letter of the Holy Office 1949 to the Archbishop of Boston, which could not be Magisterial and guided by the Holy Spirit. That same mistake is there in the text of Vatican Council II.So again neither can it be Magisterial. In fact this error is repeated as a kind of theme in Vatican Council II and it could tempt someone to reject Vatican Council II in general, as not being magisterial.It is not guided, at least in the common error, by the Holy Spirit.

Image result for Photos Vatican Council II irrational and error



The Letter of the Holy Office 1949 made a mistake when it assumed that invisible cases of the baptism of desire(BOD), baptism of blood(BOB) and being saved in invincible ignorance (I.I) were physically visible cases. So the Letter considered physically visible cases of BOD, BOB and I.I as being objective exceptions to the traditional teaching on all needing to be visible members of the Catholic Church for salvation.But there are no such physically visible cases known practically.



ST.THOMAS AQUINAS DID NOT MIX UP HYPOTHETICAL AS BEING OBJECTIVE
St. Thomas Aquinas held the strict interpretation of the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus but he did not infer that the man in the forest in invincible ignorance, was a personally known case.For him the man in the forest to whom God would send a preacher, since he was to be saved, was not an objective exception to all needing to enter the Church for salvation.It was a hypothetical case.An invisible person. This is something obvious. It is common sense.
So this false reasoning  was a mistake of the 1949 Letter of the Holy Office.It was a mistake of the liberal theologians in Boston and especially among the Jesuits.

CUSHINGITES PRESENT AT VATICAN COUNCIL II
The same Jesuits were present at Vatican Council II and so was Cardinal Richard Cushing.
Ad Gentes 7 and Lumen Gentium 14 state all need faith and  baptism for salvation but also suggest that the baptism of desire and being saved in invincible ignorance are exceptions.








CUSHINGITES AT CDF INTERPRET VATICAN COUNCIL II WITH THE FALSE REASONING
So the strict interpretation of the dogma EENS is rejected by Pope Benedict and Cardinal Luiz Ladaria sj, in two theological papers of the International Theological Commission.BOD, BOB and I.I were exceptions to the strict interpretation of the dogma EENS for Cardinal Ratzinger as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.Similarly at the Placuet Deo Press Conference,Lumen Gentium 8 was an exception to the strict interpretation of the dogma EENS, for Cardinal Luiz Ladaria sj, Prefect of the CDF.



WHY DID THEY MENTION BOD, BOB AND I.I IN VATICAN COUNCIL II?
So mentioning BOD and I.I in Vatican Council II with reference to the orthodox passages which support exclusive salvation in the Catholic Church was a mistake.
BOD, BOB and I.I are irrelevant and not exceptions to the teaching on all needing faith and baptism for salvation(AG 7).Only by assuming that BOD, BOB and I.I referred to known and physically visible non Catholics saved outside the Church, would they be exceptions to the traditional interpretation of EENS.This was the ruse used.
So the Council Fathers assumed that BOD, BOB and I.I were not just hypothetical cases but known people saved outside the Church. This was an objective mistake.
They violated the Principle of Non Contradiction.Since if someone is saved with BOD, BOB and I.I he or she would be in Heaven and not visible on earth. This person could not be in two places at the same time.
But in principle Vatican Council II assumes that hypothetical cases(LG 8, LG 16, UR 3 etc)  are objective exceptions to the strict interpretation of EENS. Hypothetical references in UR 3, GS 22, LG 8, NA 2 etc were placed alongside orthodox passages  on salvation.
This cannot be the teaching of the Holy Spirit but it is human error.A great part of Vatican Council II carries this error in reasoning. In this sense the Council cannot be Magisterial. Since the teaching of the Magisterium has to be guided by the Holy Spirit.The Holy Spirit cannot make an objective mistake.-Lionel Andrades

          Cardinal Cushing had allies with other heretical clergyman in Boston : they wanted to crush Fr. Feeney's preaching of the dogma      Cache   Translate Page      

Cushing had allies with other heretical clergymen in Boston, the area where the controversy erupted. Father John Ryan, S.J., head of the Adult Education Institute of Boston College, stated in the fall of 1947: “I do not agree with Father Feeney’s doctrine on salvation outside the Church.” Father Stephen A. Mulcahy, S.J., Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences of Boston College, termed it: “Father Feeney’s doctrine that there is no salvation outside the Church.” And Father J.J. McEleney, S.J., Provincial of the New England Province of the Society of Jesus, told Father Feeney in a personal meeting, that he was being ordered to transfer to Holy Cross College because of “Your doctrine.” Father Feeney quickly responded, “My doctrine on what?” To which Fr. McEleney replied, “I’m sorry, we can’t go into that.”
Image result for Photo Fr.Leonard Feeney
Right from the start, these fallen clergymen fused the issue with Father Feeney rather than the real source from which it came. This enabled them to focus on Father Feeney, and ignore Jesus Christ, whose doctrine this was.
Pope Pius IX, Nostis et Nobiscum (# 10), Dec. 8, 1849: “In particular, ensure that the faithful are deeply and thoroughly convinced of the truth of the doctrine that the Catholic faith is necessary for attaining salvation. (This doctrine, received from Christ and emphasized by the Fathers and Councils, is also contained in the formulae of the profession of faith used by Latin, Greek and Oriental Catholics).”
These heretics failed to realize that to belittle a defined dogma to something of Father Feeney’s invention is blasphemous and severely dishonest. But God is not mocked. We see the same thing today, especially rampant among so-called traditionalists. But I will return to this point.
On December 2, 1948, the President of Boston College, Father William L. Keleher, S.J., held an interview with Dr. Maluf, who was an ally of Father Feeney in the stand for the dogma. Fr. Keleher stated:
Father Feeney came to me at the beginning of this situation and I would have liked to do something except that I could not agree with his doctrine on salvation… He (Fr. Feeney) kept repeating such phrases as ‘There is no salvation outside the Catholic Church.’”
When Maluf (a member of the Boston College faculty) responded that this “phrase” is a defined dogma, Fr. Keleher said:
the theologians at St. John’s Seminary and Weston College disagree with Father Feeney’s doctrine on the salvation of non-Catholics.”
