          Why Not Vote? Anarchists and Libertarians Weigh In      Cache   Translate Page      
Conscientious non-voters have many reasons for not voting. Don't listen to them. by Katie Herzog

You'd think after nearly 250 years we'd have this voting thing down by now, yet all across the country Americans are once again marking Election Day by waiting in long-ass lines. (Except, that is, for the three enlightened states that have adopted vote-by-mail, which, coincidentally, were also the first three states to legalize weed.)

Voter participation is expected to be record high this week, but voting rates in the U.S. are still abysmally low compared to many countries. Australia, where voting is mandatory, ranks at the top of the heap, followed by Malta, Chile, Belgium, Italy, and Luxembourg, all of which have a voter turnout of over 90 percent. On the lower end, you have Russia, Switzerland, Pakistan, and the United States, where, on a good year, only around 60 percent of eligible voters show up. Why doesn’t nearly half the popular vote? I suspect it's because most people just don't give a shit and their stories are on. If you asked this apathetic portion of the populace who the Attorney General is, I’m guessing they'd say, "What army?" But there's also a population of people who do give a fuck but who still opt not to participate in this particular part of the civic process: conscientious non-voters.

For some conscientious non-voters, it all comes down to who's running. A 53-year-old home-builder who is primarily concerned about government spending (and who benefits from it) told me that he will "vote again when we have a viable third party that values freedom for all, not just the ones whose ideas they favor but especially for those who have ideas they despise." He will not, he added, "vote again until I see politicians that understand and prioritize spending within our means."

I also spoke with a 28-year-old conservative who told me that he was so disappointed in Obama's victories in 2008 and 2012 that the prospect of getting invested and losing again just isn't worth it. Another non-voter, an anarchist and philosophy PhD student, said that voting is damaging because it allows people to "focus on policy and what people in power do instead of what they can do themselves." When I asked what the public should do about policies they disagree with—for example, separating and imprisoning immigrant families—he advocated for direct action like assisting immigrants at border crossings instead. "Voting does matter in the aggregate," he said, "but it doesn't matter if you are talking about the individual.”

This point—that individual votes don't matter—is also made by Katherine Mangu-Ward, the editor-in-chief of Reason, the libertarian magazine based in Washington, D.C. For her, it all comes down to numbers. "You are very, very, very, very, very, very unlikely to be a decisive vote," Katherine said. "Your vote turning the outcome of an election is vanishingly rare, whereas, there are all kinds of things you can do with the hour or two hours of your time that it takes you to vote that are objectively, clearly good."

When I asked Katherine if voting took less time—if she could, say, vote-by-mail, which takes about as much time as walking to your mailbox—she would still feel it’s a waste of time, she said that there are other, more affirmative arguments against voting. "If you think the system is basically corrupt or broken, I think there's a very strong case to make that you actually have a duty not to vote."

On that, we disagree. Democracy isn't inherently corrupt. It's corrupt when the people running it are corrupt, and one of the only means of swaying who is steering the ship is to show up and vote. Sure, your individual vote might not change the outcome of an election, but as Kant would argue, if everyone failed to vote, the system itself would fail. For some non-voters (for instance, the anarchist philosophy student), that may be the goal, but Katherine says she's not in favor of the collapse of the system as we know it. Rather, she prefers to participate in the system in other ways, including calling her elected representatives.

Still, I'm not convinced. Sure, calling your representative is one way to be heard, but if your representative is, say, a rabid, God-fearing, conservative who thinks non-Christians should burn on Earth and will burn in hell, he's probably not going to listen when you call up and demand he vote in favor of access to abortion. Same if you're represented by a member of the DSA and you've got a complaint about tax rates on the rich. So what can you, as an individual, actually do? Show up to vote. Your particular vote might not change the election, but the collective vote does, and the collective is just a bunch of individuals taking action.

Now, I understand why people don't trust the system. Just look at recent history, namely the 2000 and 2016 presidential elections, both of which were ultimately won by the person who got fewer votes. But the only way to correct the system is to elect candidates who will at least try and fix it—and right now, there's only one party in the running that is even remotely interested in that. The other side is busy starting trade wars and locking up children. When the stakes are this high, when the chance to curb Donald Trump comes down to our ballots, I don’t see how not voting can be morally justified—unless, that is, you vote Republican. In that case: Listen to Katherine.

          'One of the Biggest Fraud Cases Ever': Trump Biographer David Cay Johnston Uncovers Rudy Giuliani's Alleged Role In Massive $10 Billion Theft      Cache   Translate Page      
The complaint is aimed at uncovering the full details of Russian money flowing to various Trump projects using so-called anonymous wealth companies.

A human rights organization has asked Dutch prosecutors to open a criminal investigation into multi-billion dollar money laundering schemes that they say were aided by Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and his old law firm.

This story first appeared at DC Report.

The complaint is clearly aimed at examining how much money stolen from a former Soviet satellite ended up benefitting Trump. He is named 16 times in the complaint’s footnotes.

The complaint describes “one of the biggest fraud cases ever” in which “some of these money flows ultimately ended up in the Netherlands” because “Dutch service providers helped to cover up the money laundering acts.”

Watch David Cay Johnston’s Video Commentary Below:

“The money laundering network started in Kazakhstan, where a figure of up to USD 10 billion was purportedly embezzled,” the complaint asserts. “This money was subsequently circulated by two Kazakh oligarch families via a worldwide network of shell companies. A number of these companies were established in the Netherlands. The money was subsequently invested in real estate projects in the United States and Europe, after which it was paid out as ‘profits’ via – once again – a network of shell companies.”

Netherlands banks and other firms play a significant role in illicit flows of cash around the world through sophisticated techniques to hide income and corporate profits. Many of these techniques appear to push the envelope on legal tax avoidance. When money laundering is involved these aggressive techniques could cross a line into aiding and abetting criminal tax evasion.

The complaint asserts that a small slice of the missing billions was run through Dutch shell corporations with help from Rudy Giuliani’s old law firm, Bracewell & Giuliani. Until 2016, Giuliani was a partner in the 470-lawyer firm.

Neither Giuliani nor anyone at his firm Giuliani Security & Safety LLC responded to requests for his side of the story. Multiple requests for comment prompted no response from Greg M. Bopp, managing partner of what was then Bracewell & Giuliani but is now called only Bracewell.

The complaint was filed by Avaaz, a global human rights organization in Washington which claims 48 million members. It has issued an open call to prosecutors around the world to investigate “the giant web of corruption” that it says propelled Trump’s rise.

Avaaz says it has approximately 290,000 members in the Netherlands. The complaint was filed Oct. 22 with J.J.M. van Dis-Setz of the Dutch Public Prosecution Service by Barbara van Straaten, a lawyer in Amsterdam.

The complaint filed with the Netherlands Public Prosecution Service in Amsterdam relies on court records from several countries that were dug up by investigative journalists, including James S. Henry, the investigative economics editor of DCReport.

The Dutch television program Zembla aired an investigative piece on Trump and his Russian associates in 2017. It followed up with an expose of a Trump business partner’s role in a Dutch money laundering scheme.

The complaint is aimed at uncovering the full details of Russian money flowing to various Trump projects using so-called anonymous wealth companies. Those are shell companies created to hide the identities of the owners. Trump and his family are known to have received vast sums from shell companies and have bragged about how much of it came from people in Russia and other parts of the former Soviet empire. Trump contends the deals were all lawful and he has no knowledge of any money laundering.

A criminal investigation by Dutch prosecutors could help that country avoid banking sanctions and loss of reputation by showing that Amsterdam enforces its own laws and respects laws on transnational crimes.

Roughly $10 billion was stolen from Kazakhstan, a former Soviet satellite located in Central Asia. The current Kazakh government is in court in Switzerland and elsewhere trying to recover the money and prosecute members of two families it says stole the money and laundered it in the West. Other lawsuits connected to the stolen money are being litigated in London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles.

The $10 billion theft was uncovered by PricewaterhouseCoopers during its 2009 audit of BTA Bank, the largest in Kazakhstan. In addition, there is about $300 million missing from Almaty, the largest city in Kazakhstan.

Court documents identify the suspected thieves as Viktor Khrapunov and Mukhtar Ablyazov, oligarchs whose families are bound not just by extensive business ties, but also by marriage. Khrapunov is the former mayor of Almaty. His son Illyas is married to Ablyazov’s daughter.

“There are strong indications that the revenues of these crimes were probably mixed via a complex money-laundering network, and there was a great deal of mutual overlap” between the companies and people suspected of the crimes, the complaint states.

Both Khrapunov and Ablyazov are fugitives.

Khrapunov, who was tried in absentia in Kazakhstan, has been convicted of corruption.

Ablyazov, who was president of the looted bank, had his worldwide assets with an estimated value of $4.9 billion frozen six years ago by a British High Court.

Trump has done business since 1983 with Russian oligarchs and wealthy former officials and business people in former Soviet satellites, including Kazakhstan, Georgia and Azerbaijan. A number of mobsters – American, Russian and others – live in Trump Tower apartments. The building has long been known to local, federal and international law enforcement as a nest of criminal residences.

In 1987 the Kremlin, then still a communist state, provided Trump and his first wife Ivana with a luxury trip to Russia.

While a number of journalistic investigations have looked into Trump’s dealings with oligarchs and their money using public records and sources they were limited to public records, which are often scant. Dutch prosecutors, however, have the power to subpoena banking and other records, forcing their disclosure to prosecutors and, potentially, the public.

Trump is known to have done deals with some of those mentioned in the complaint, including Felix Sater, a violent Long Island felon who was born in Russia. For years Sater traveled extensively with Trump working on deals named in the complaint and handing out his Trump Organization business card. Despite these long ties and both videos and still photos showing the men together, Trump claimed during the presidential campaign that he would not recognize Sater if they were in the same room.

Sater is believed to be cooperating with Robert Mueller, the American special prosecutor investigating Trump.

In one deal involving Sater, millions of dollars from the Trump SoHo hotel and apartment tower disappeared into an Icelandic bank that was under the control of a Russian oligarch. That bank was part of a multi-billion-dollar scheme to defraud Dutch and British pension funds. Trump has testified that he was due 18% of profits from the building.

The faux gold letters bearing the name, under an agreement reached a year ago, have been pried from the building façade.

Just three weeks before the 2016 election, a massive expose of Trump’s role in helping Kazakh oligarchs hide their illicit money appeared in The Financial Times, a British business newspaper.

“Dirty Money: Trump and the Kazakh Connection” described “evidence a Trump venture has links to alleged laundering network.”

The newspaper said its investigation found that Trump had “assembled an eclectic collection of backers and collaborators. Some had chequered pasts, with links to organized crime or fraud schemes. But perhaps the biggest risk for Mr. Trump’s complex, often opaque, business empire was that it might be used for a purpose US officials fear is rife in the country’s real estate sector: laundering dirty money.”

Trump’s SoHo project “has multiple ties to an alleged international money laundering network. Title deeds, bank records and correspondence show that a Kazakh family accused of laundering hundreds of millions of stolen dollars bought luxury apartments in a Manhattan tower part-owned by Mr. Trump and embarked on major business ventures with one of the tycoon’s partners,” the British newspaper The Financial Timesreported after an extensive investigation.

Trump and his partners, the FT asserted, engaged in condo sales that appear to have violated the Patriot Act, the post 9/11 law that requires banks, developers and others to know who their customers are and the sources of their money.

Investigations to identify anonymous buyers of luxury apartments in New York and Florida to determine the extent of any money laundering were announced in January 2016 by the federal government’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

Three months later the FinCEN director, Jennifer Shasky Calvery, spoke about her years of work on transnational Russian organized crime networks. Much of her work involved Russian crime families “laundering their funds through the U.S. financial system. Often, this involved the suspected purchase of personal residences with criminal proceeds.”

In July 2016, the month the GOP nominated Trump, FinCen announced it would be investigating sales of luxury apartments beyond New York and Florida because of its growing concern about flows of illicit cash disguised in real estate deals.

While Giuliani calls himself Trump’s personal lawyer, his role is primarily to spread Trumpian disinformation about Special Prosecutor Mueller’s investigations into Russian collusion and related matters concerning Trump and his 2016 presidential campaign. Because Giuliani appears on so many cable and other television shows, but not in court, MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell calls the former New York City mayor “Trump’s TV lawyer.”

          Event: The Kassler Lecture from Herman Hertzberger      Cache   Translate Page      
Event Date: Nov 15, 2018; Event City: Princeton, NJ, US

Dutch architect Herman Hertzberger graduated in 1958 from what is now the Technical University of Delft. His architectural practice, AHH, was established in 1960. Hertzberger's best known designs include the Centraal Beheer head office in Apeldoorn, Music Centre Vredenburg in Utrecht, The Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment in the Hague and the Chassé Theatre in Breda. His office is known for its many cultural buildings, schools, and residential buildings in the Netherlands and abroad. Hertzberger has been awarded many fellowships and received prestigious awards for individual projects as well as for his work as a whole. In 2012, he was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Gold Medal and in 2015 he received the esteemed Thomas Jefferson Foundation Medal in Architecture.

He has lectured at the Academy of Architecture, Amsterdam (1965-69), was professor at the Technical University of Delft (1970-99), visiting professor at the University of Geneva (Switzerland), and chairman of the Postgraduate Berlage Institute (1990-95). He has also presented lectures in Europe, North America, Central America, South America, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia.

Hertzberger's projects have been published and exhibited all over the world. He was one of the editors of the Dutch magazine FORUM, together with Aldo van Eyck and Jaap Bakema. Along with many magazine articles, he wrote the books Lessons for Students in Architecture (1991), which has been published in twelve languages, and Space and the Architect, Lessons in Architecture 2 (2000). Hertzberger's Space and Learning (2008) brings together his knowledge and ideas in a theoretical study of the spatial conditions of learning while The Schools of Herman Hertzberger (2009) presents his built and unbuilt schools, with an essay from sociologist Abram de Swaan calling Hertzberger a pre-eminently "sociological" architect. His latest book, Architecture and Structuralism (2015), attempts to formulate what structuralism means in architecture and why that matters, given a new impulse to the discussion about sustainability and a blueprint for a more democratic architecture.

Documentaries on Hertzberger include Searching for Space, a film by Kees Hin (2010), and The School as City from filmmakers Moniek van de Vall and Gustaaf Vos (2012).

Lecture made possible by the Kenneth Kassler Memorial Lecture Fund. The School of Architecture, Princeton University, is registered with the AIA Continuing Education System (AIA/CES) and is committed to developing quality learning activities in accordance with the AIA/CES criteria.

“Shockwave”, “political earthquake”, “mess”: for the Swiss newspapers, the thwarted attempt by the town of Moutier to change cantonal allegiance via direct democracy has reignited the “Jura Question” and damaged Switzerland’s reputation as a smooth-running democracy machine.  In June 2017, almost 52% of voters in Moutier decided (by 137 votes) to leave canton Bern and join canton Jura. However, suspicions were aroused that some people had registered as eligible voters in Moutier without actually living there. On Monday the result was declared void.  “Who wins loses”, noted Le Quotidien Jurassien bitterly in an editorial headed “the claw of the prefect”, referring to the district official who had taken the decision on Monday.

          Supprimer le Black Friday pour un commerce plus juste : le Fair Friday      Cache   Translate Page      

L’apparition du Black Friday, aux États-Unis, ne date pas d’hier : on l’évoque dès 1951, pour désigner une journée de congé offerte aux salariés. Ce sont les commerces qui, dans les années 60, s’en serviront pour une approche plus marchande. Depuis, c’est devenu la foire des achats, au lendemain de Thanksgiving...


Black Friday in Switzerland
Kecko, CC BY 2.0
 

 

Importée en Europe, voilà quelques années, cette initiative est présentée par Pascal Vandenberghe, PDG des librairies Payot (Suisse), comme « une incitation à l’hyperconsommation ». En Suisse, spécifiquement, c’est la participation dès 2015 du distributeur Manor qui introduira la notion dans le pays. Mais en 2016, l’événement prit de l’ampleur.

Et en réaction, il lance un appel, relayé ci-dessous, auprès des commerçants de Suisse romande : plus qu’un Black Friday, opter pour un Fair Friday, opération « destinée à lutter contre la pauvreté ».

 

Appel aux commerçants de Suisse romande
 

Aux États-Unis, le « Black Friday » suit le jeudi du « Thanksgiving » (3e jeudi de novembre), fête traditionnelle célébrant les récoltes. Importé en Suisse il y a quelques années, le « Black Friday » ne s’inscrit dans aucune tradition locale. C’est une simple opération mercantile, destinée à augmenter la fréquentation et les achats dans les magasins, à travers des offres de rabais allant généralement de 20 à 50 %. 

 

Cette opération commerciale est une incitation à l’hyperconsommation que nous jugeons inadaptée à une époque où le développement durable, l’éthique et la « consommation raisonnée » constituent des priorités sociétales majeures. 

En Suisse, plus d’un demi-million de personnes, dont 100.000 enfants, sont en situation de pauvreté (Sources : Caritas et Office fédéral de la statistique suisse [enquête sur les revenus et les conditions de vie, 2016].

Nous estimons qu’il est utile et nécessaire de sensibiliser et mobiliser les consommateurs/trices et citoyen[ne] s dans la lutte contre la pauvreté. Nous avons donc décidé de proposer une opération alternative au « Black Friday », intitulée « Fair Friday », et de nous associer pour cela à Caritas et à son programme « Pauvreté, faisons-la disparaître! », lancé en 2009 et visant également à l’insertion des personnes en situation de précarité. 

 

« Ces personnes sont tributaires d’une aide pour couvrir leurs besoins vitaux. Mais il ne peut s’agir que d’un objectif minimal. Les projets de Caritas visent à garantir de surcroît une existence sociale, incluant une participation à la vie sociale. Ils sont guidés par le principe de la promotion de l’autonomie et élargissent la marge de manœuvre dont disposent des personnes affectées par la pauvreté. » 
 

Les 23 et 24 novembre, nous proposerons aux client[e]s fréquentant nos magasins de Suisse romande [Payot Libraire et Nature & Découvertes] d’« arrondir » le montant de leurs achats au profit de Caritas. Les client[e]s seront naturellement libres d’accepter et libres de choisir le montant de leur « arrondi ».

L’argent collecté sera destiné à aider des personnes en situation de pauvreté en Suisse romande. Il leur permettra de suivre des programmes de formation et d’insertion professionnelle organisés par Caritas. 
 

Nous souhaitons fédérer autour de ce projet les commerces sceptiques face au « Black Friday » et désireux, comme nous, d’assumer leur responsabilité vis-à-vis de la société en transformant ces journées en action citoyenne. Les magasins et établissements participant au « Black Friday » peuvent également s’associer à cette opération en proposant à leurs client[e] s de verser à Caritas une partie du rabais proposé sur leurs articles.

Les magasins et enseignes de toute taille intéressés à participer peuvent envoyer un mail à l’adresse suivante : fairfriday@payot.ch [date limite : 15 novembre 2018]. Ils recevront par retour le « mode d’emploi » de l’opération et une « charte d’engagement » à retourner signée. 

 

Une fois inscrits, ils recevront par mail les supports de communication à imprimer [dans différents formats] pour signaler à leurs client[e] s leur participation à cette opération. Les supports de communication sont « neutres » et ne font pas mention du nom de l’initiateur de cette opération, Payot SA.

          Energy cost of 'mining' bitcoin is more than twice that of gold      Cache   Translate Page

The Guardian, London
Monday, November, 5, 2018

The amount of energy required to "mine" one dollar's worth of bitcoin is more than twice that required to mine the same value of copper, gold, or platinum, according to a new paper, suggesting that the virtual work that underpins bitcoin, ethereum, and similar projects is more similar to real mining than anyone intended.

One dollar's worth of bitcoin takes about 17 megajoules of energy to mine, according to researchers from the Oak Ridge Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio, compared with four, five, and seven megajoules for copper, gold, and platinum.

          Next-Gen Satellites May Use Lasers to Part the Clouds      Cache   Translate Page      
Scientists of the future huddle around a computer, waiting for an HD live stream of the incoming asteroid. As the probe that will provide the crucial communication slowly moves into view of the asteroid, they know that every second counts. In a surprising move, they tune their receivers not to radio frequencies, like we do today, but to a much higher frequency—somewhere in the near-infrared. But they think nothing of it—infrared and visible light allows for a much better transmission of data, and all of the leading satellite producers have switched over by now. But at the last minute, a cloud rolls in above the station, scattering the message from the relay satellite in all directions and cutting off the receiver.

That’s where the work of Dr. Jean-Pierre Wolf comes in.

He’s a professor at the Université de Genève in Switzerland and his research could be the missing link that makes this kind of high-speed communication with satellites possible. He’s been working for years on a specialized laser that stations can aim at the sky to dispel any water droplets in the air—effectively boring a hole through the cloud and permitting the satellite’s signal to pass through.

A visualization of the laser that bores through clouds.
Image Credit: UNIGE, Xavier Ravinet
But let’s take a step back. Today, all communication with satellites is done using radio frequency electromagnetic waves, largely because they're stable over large distances and aren’t prone to scattering in Earth’s atmosphere. However, they sprawl out as they travel down to Earth and tend to cover a large area by the time they reach land, requiring that nearby satellites use frequency bands that don’t overlap—otherwise any listener on the ground would receive an unintelligible mixture of information coming from a variety of sources. Because of this, a patchwork of national and international organizations relegate so-called “frequency bands” (a narrow range of frequencies) to various agencies for a fee. However, in our increasingly connected world, unused frequency bands are harder and harder to come by—which means the price has skyrocketed.

Because of these constraints, a number of researchers are turning to a different mode of communication: near-infrared and optical frequencies beamed down from space using powerful lasers. While laser beams are still composed of electromagnetic waves, the waves oscillate thousands of times faster than radio, carrying up to 10,000 times the amount of data. The pinpoint accuracy of a laser beam also allows for more direct communication without the risk of a third party intercepting messages simply by tuning in to a fortuitous frequency. Instead, the laser ensures what Wolf calls “end-to-end connection”: one end comes from the satellite and the other end lands on a single receiver, with a strongly reduced possibility of leakage. In addition, at higher frequencies the quantum nature of the photons present in the electromagnetic wave becomes more apparent, making extra security features like quantum cryptography possible. Oh, and lasers use much less power than radio sources.

In short, there are plenty of reasons to move away from radio communications.

The biggest obstacle to the switch, surprisingly, doesn’t lie in current laser or satellite technology—in fact, NASA used lasers to beam a video down from the space station back in 2014. Instead, the problem is a more fundamental one: bad weather.

Unlike radio waves, the higher frequency lasers are easily scattered by the water droplets that make up clouds or fog, rendering any satellites that use them mute the moment a storm hits. One popular solution to this problem has been to simply build more receiving stations and hope that at least one will see clear skies at any given time, but this is every bit as costly and inconvenient as it sounds. Fortunately, in light of Wolf’s recent publication, it may be unnecessary.

Believe it or not, Wolf isn’t the first to tackle the project of whisking clouds away with lasers. In the 1970s and 1980s the Soviet Union and U.S. military experimented with using high-intensity carbon dioxide lasers to locally boil away the water contained in clouds to improve troop visibility on the battlefield. Although they did succeed in clearing a hole roughly 100 m long, the electricity draw was eventually determined to be prohibitive.

Instead, Wolf decided to take a different approach that would be more energy efficient using pulsed lasers. This kind of laser has a rapidly oscillating power, rather than a constant one; as it turns out, when the peak power—the power delivered when the pulse is at its strongest—is sufficiently high, a special property emerges that isn’t seen in other lasers.

First, the power is not uniformly concentrated across the tiny width of the laser beam; instead it is highest at the center of the beam and tapers off towards the edges. The variation in electromagnetic radiation actually affects the index of refraction (a measure of how much light is bent) of the surrounding air, effectively turning the air itself into a lens—the technical term for this phenomenon is a Kerr lens. This “lens” bends the beams in towards itself, narrowing its breadth and refocusing it until it is strong enough to rip electrons from the surrounding atoms in a process called ionization.

At this point the beam diverges again, and the process repeats itself faster and faster until eventually the laser beam holds a stable width, at which point it is referred to as a “filament”. The lone electrons that were stripped off of their atoms don’t remain that way for long though; they quickly recombine with the positively-charged ions, releasing energy in the form of a shock wave and a crackling noise. This is where the magic happens: the shock waves pushes water droplets out of the way, opening a channel roughly a centimeter in diameter. But that’s enough to allow the passage of a laser transmitting all the information it contains. (Eventually, we will need to get to approximately 10 cm to receive information from a satellite.)

An illustration of the filamentation process. To the upper left, the diagram shows how the index of refraction (n) varies with distance, creating a "lens" and causing the beam to converge. To the upper right, the ionization changes the index of refraction once more, this time causing the beam to diverge. As the process repeats itself over and over, the laser beam self-stabilizes and creates a laser filament (lower diagram).

Since the laser is merely displacing the water droplets rather than boiling them off like the military tried to do, the power draw comes out to a much more reasonable 100 watts. Even so, this laser is still incredibly powerful. When asked about safety concerns, Wolf nods. Since the cleaning beams are sent up to the satellite and not down to the earth, there isn’t a big risk associated with them—after all, the energy (and the danger) of a laser is concentrated inside the beam. He does acknowledge that the only (manmade) objects that might pass through the beam—aircraft—will need to be diverted. “But there are already a number of no-fly zones,” he points out. We would just need to be strategic about where we build receiving stations; the middle of a flight corridor might be out of the question. But even if a plane did fly through the beam, it wouldn’t be at risk unless it were flying sideways or upside down. “But if that is the case, you have other problems,” he chuckles.

Wolf envisions equipping receiving facilities with one of these self-stabilizing lasers, possibly by coupling them to the focusing lasers that are already required to get a satellite’s attention. Then, any time intense humidity threatens the quality of communication the stations will be ready to blast it out of the way.

So far, Wolf has demonstrated his laser’s effectiveness in a laboratory setting using an artificial cloud only 50 cm deep, but with 10,000 the water concentration of a typical cloud. He says he is currently in close contact with large aerospace consortia and hopes to test the technology out on a real cloud soon. If that goes well—as he believes it will—he hopes to see a global rollout by 2025.
If that’s the case, it might not actually be long before those scientists of the future become the scientists of the present...let’s just hope there’s no asteroid.

Reasons Why Paint Watercolour Is Getting More Popular In The Past Decade | paint watercolour

via WordPress ift.tt/2PNAobu

Whether or not you’re artistically inclined, there’s a acceptable adventitious that you—like millions of added bodies about the world—have been captivated by Bob Ross’s advisory mural paintings and abatement voice. On what would accept been Ross’s 76th birthday, we’re administration 35 facts about the blessed little legend.

Getting Started With Watercolor: What You Need to Know – paint watercolour | paint watercolour

A constant beastly lover, Ross was consistently rescuing blood-soaked animals and nursing them aback to health. As a kid growing up in Florida, this meant one rather aberrant accession to the family: an alligator, which he attempted to abettor aback to bloom in the Ross ancestors bathtub. Alike in his developed life, Ross was consistently arena host to orphaned and afflicted animals, including an epileptic accumulate that lived in his abandoned Jacuzzi.

Ross’s quiet articulation and affable address were two of his best iconic traits, which makes the actuality that he spent 20 years in the United States Air Force and retired with the rank of adept baker all the added surprising. Basically, he was the guy who told anybody abroad what to do.

Before he lent his adapted articulation to The Joy of Painting, Ross spent a lot of time yelling. “I was the guy who makes you abrade the latrine, the guy who makes you accomplish your bed, the guy who screams at you for actuality backward to work,” Ross already said. “The job requires you to be a mean, boxy person. And I was fed up with it. I promised myself that if I anytime got abroad from it, it wasn’t activity to be that way anymore.”

While stationed in Alaska during his assignment in the Air Force, Ross advantaged his artistic ancillary by painting his now-iconic landscapes assimilate aureate pans, which he awash for $25 apiece. Today, they can aback as abundant as $7500 on eBay.

From 1974 to 1982, German painter Bill Alexander hosted an art apprenticeship appearance on PBS, The Magic of Oil Painting, area he aggregate his “wet-on-wet” oil painting technique. Ross apparent the alternation while alive as a bartender, and became an actual fan of the artist. He concluded up belief beneath Alexander, who became his mentor. In fact, Ross committed the aboriginal adventure of his own PBS show, The Joy of Painting, to Alexander. “Years ago, Bill accomplished me this absurd technique,” Ross told viewers. “And I feel as admitting he gave me a adored gift, and I’d like to allotment that allowance with you.”

In the aboriginal 1980s, as Alexander was advancing to retire, he asked Ross to booty over teaching his painting classes. Ross agreed, and set out to bout the country on his own in a motor home, traveling and teaching bodies Alexander’s “wet-on-wet” technique. He told his wife Jane that he’d try it out for one year, and if he didn’t accomplish abundant money, he would acknowledgment to Alaska.

It was during Ross’s time on the alley that he adopted his iconic hairstyle. Back teaching painting wasn’t an acutely advantageous profession, Ross abstruse to amplitude every penny. One way he did this was to save money on haircuts by accepting his locks permed.

Though Ross reportedly hated the coiled hair, he was a agent first, which is why he kept it. “When we got a band of paints and brushes, we put his account on,” Bob Ross Aggregation co-founder Annette Kowalski told Mental Floss. “The logo is a account of Bob with that hair, so he could never get it cut. He wasn’t consistently blessed about that.”

(You can see what he looked like afterwards his brand perm here.)

Though it was Alexander who got Ross started on his career aisle as an artist, it was Kowalski—one of Ross’s students—who put him on the pop ability map. Kowalski, who is generally accustomed as the woman who “discovered” Ross, took a five-day advisory advance with Ross in 1982, and bound became amorous with his abstracted articulation and absolute messages.

In accession to newfound painting skills, Kowalski larboard the chic with a new client: she became Ross’s manager, allowance him agent the accord for The Joy of Painting television appearance with PBS, and later, a band of Bob Ross art supplies.

The Joy of Painting ran new seasons on PBS from 1983 to 1994, so alike at accessible broadcasting ante the appearance charge accept fabricated Ross absolutely a bit of loot, right? Not quite. Ross absolutely did the alternation for free; his assets came from Bob Ross Inc.

Ross’s aggregation awash art food and how-to videotapes, accomplished classes, and alike had a affiliation of traveling art advisers who roamed the apple teaching painting. It’s boxy to anticipate of a bigger advertisement for these articles than Ross’s show.

How did Ross acquisition the time to band all of those shows for free? He could almanac a division about as fast as he could paint. Ross could blast out an absolute 13-episode division of The Joy of Painting in aloof over two days, which freed him up to get aback to teaching lessons, which is area he fabricated his absolute money.

In accession to actuality agitated by about 95 percent of all accessible television stations beyond America, extensive admirers in added than 93.5 actor homes, The Joy of Painting was a hit alfresco of the U.S. as well. The appearance was advertisement in dozens of adopted countries, including the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, South Korea, and Turkey.

The Joy of Painting was a big hit in Japan, area it aired alert a day. (His voice, however, was dubbed.) On a appointment to the country, Ross was reportedly chock-full by fans.

“We’re like biologic dealers,” Ross already said of the acceptance of his painting technique. “Come into boondocks and get everybody absolutely absorbed to painting. It doesn’t booty abundant to get you addicted.”

Though he was assuredly a pop ability phenomenon, the art apple didn’t absolutely embrace Ross. “People absolutely apperceive who he is,” Kevin Lavin, a “struggling” painter, told The New York Times in 1991. “In his own way, he is as acclaimed as Warhol.”

“It is formulaic and thoughtless,” sculptor Keith Frank said of Ross’s assignment in the aforementioned article. “Art as therapy.”

“I am abashed by art apprenticeship on television,” added Abstract Expressionist Richard Pousette-Dart, who anesthetized abroad the afterward year. “It’s terrible—bad, bad, bad. They are aloof bartering exploiters, non-artists teaching added non-artists.”

The New York Times paid a appointment to Pearl Acrylic Company, an art accumulation abundance in New York City, area an agent acicular to the “happy little corner” area they kept Ross’s products. “We adumbrate them,” he admitted, “so as not to offend.”

Bill Alexander was one of the artists who wasn’t captivated with Ross’s success, alike admitting he had been his protégé. “He betrayed me,” Alexander told The New York Times. “I invented ‘wet on wet.’ I accomplished him and he is artful me—what bothers me is not aloof that he betrayed me, but that he thinks he can do it better.”

Though allotment of Ross’s address was his communicative tone, none of this allocution of blessed accidents or added blessed little things was ad libbed. “He told me he would lay in bed at night and plan every word,” Kowalski already said. “He knew absolutely what he was doing.”

Though you’d never apperceive it from his painting technique, not all of Ross’s digits were intact. He absent allotment of his larboard basis feel back he was a kid in a woodworking blow while alive with his dad, who was a carpenter.

While copse and wildlife generally helped accompany Ross’s paintings to life, he rarely corrective people. In fact, he admired to accumulate his assignment as people-free as possible.

“I will acquaint you Bob’s better secret,” Kowalski told FiveThirtyEight. “If you notice, his cabins never had chimneys on them. That’s because chimneys represented people, and he didn’t appetite any assurance of a actuality in his paintings.”

The Joy of Painting consistently featured a alternating casting of blessed little animals, with a tiny accumulate alleged Peapod apparently accepting the aggregate of airtime. According to Ross, Peapod admired to sit in his pocket.

Though The Joy of Painting was a admired series, bodies didn’t assume to be watching it to apprentice how to be the abutting Picasso. It was already estimated that alone 10 percent of admirers were absolutely painting forth with Ross.

In 2014, FiveThirtyEight did a statistical breakdown of Ross’s assignment on The Joy of Painting and begin that 91 percent of them included at atomic one tree—by far the best accepted element. (And if he corrective one tree, there was a 93 percent adventitious he’d acrylic a added one—though he referred to any added copse as “friends” on the show.)

On a few occasions, Ross’s son Steve subbed for his dad as a bedfellow host. That aforementioned abstracts set apparent that Steve admired blessed little lakes: 91 percent of Steve’s paintings featured one (as against to Bob’s 34 percent).

Ross attempt 403 episodes of The Joy of Painting and fabricated three near-exact copies of anniversary painting per episode. The aboriginal archetype consistently hid off screen, and Ross referred to it while the cameras formed (none of his on-air paintings were spontaneous). Ross corrective a third archetype back filming finished. This time, an abettor would angle abaft him and breeze photos of anniversary brushstroke; these pictures went into his how-to books.

For all his accepted popularity, there aren’t a lot of interviews with Ross. It has annihilation to do with the artisan actuality publicity-shy—it’s aloof that bodies rarely asked. “I never about-face bottomward requests for interviews,” he already said. “I’m aloof rarely asked.”

For all his hokey-ness, Ross was air-conditioned abundant to be asked to be a bell-ringer for MTV—which he accounted “The acreage of blessed little trees.”

Great Ideas with Watercolor Paint – paint watercolour | paint watercolour

Though some anticipation it was an April Fools’ joke, Nintendo had affairs to actualize a alternation of video amateur based on The Joy of Painting. Unfortunately, the activity ran into assembly problems appealing aboriginal on, so we’ll never apperceive what ability accept been.

In 2001, Bob Ross Inc. media administrator Joan Kowalski told The New York Times how bodies about seemed ashamed to accept that Ross’s articulation was the absolute band-aid to insomnia. “It’s funny to allocution to these people,” she said. ”Because they anticipate they’re the alone ones who watch to booty a nap. Bob knew about this. Bodies would appear up to him and say, ‘I don’t appetite to aching your feelings, but you’ve been putting me to beddy-bye for 10 years.’ He’d adulation it.”

Even today, Ross has become an ASMR star: On the ASMR cilia on Reddit, “Bob Ross” is listed as a accepted trigger. A video of Ross painting a abundance has a amazing 7.65 actor views, with others consistently before 2 or 3 actor views. Of course, not all of those are ASMR viewers, but a ascent online attendance suggests they absolutely deserve some of the credit.

In a 1991 account with The New York Times, Ross claimed he’d fabricated over 30,000 paintings back he was an 18-year-old stationed in Alaska with the Air Force. Yet he was not one to militarist his own work. So what happened to them? Back Ross died of lymphoma in 1995, best of his paintings either concluded up in the easily of alms or PBS.

“One of the questions that I apprehend over and over and over is, ‘What do we do with all these paintings we do on television?’ Best of these paintings are donated to PBS stations beyond the country,” he said. “They bargain them off, and they accomplish a blessed blade with ‘em. So if you’d like to accept one, get in blow with your PBS station, account … we accord them to stations all over the country to advice them out with their fundraisers.”

The actuality that Ross didn’t try and about-face a accumulation from his own assignment doesn’t beggarly that you can’t acquisition one for sale. At one point, added than a dozen of his paintings hit the atramentous bazaar back accession blanket 13 advertence paintings from Ross’s van during the show’s added season.

In the aboriginal 1990s, Ross was attractive to annex out from art and had an abstraction for a kids’ appearance alleged Bob’s World, area he planned to go out into attributes and advise kids about wildlife.

The Bob Ross Art Workshop in New Smyrna Beach, Florida is a must-visit destination for Ross die-hards: In accession to alms art classes in Ross’s method, you’ll acquisition a accumulating of the artist’s aboriginal paintings.

Two Inch Brush—named afterwards Ross’s besom of best for the wet-on-wet technique—is an actionable database that organizes all 403 paintings from The Joy of Painting by division and episode.

In August 2017, Funko appear a vinyl baby of the iconic artist/television personality. It depicts Ross dressed in his brand jeans and accepted shirt, captivation a painter’s palette. Sadly, it doesn’t appear with any miniature paintings of “happy little trees.”

          6 November 1933: Dr. Simon Hertz      Cache   Translate Page      

November 6, 1933
Luxembourg

On this day Simon HERTZ is admitted to practice medicine in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. He is a descendant of a Hertz (also Herz) family of the Jewish faith, from the Trier, Germany area who settled in 1846 in Christnach, Luxembourg, later relocating to Waldbillig, Luxembourg, where he is born on July 14, 1907. An orphan at an early age, he is able to pursue studies in medicine in Paris, France, thanks to the help of relatives. As Nazi Germany invades Luxembourg on May 10, 1940, Dr. Simon Hertz flees Luxembourg and practices medicine for a while in Southern France. He arrives in New York on April 16, 1942, aboard the SS Guiné from Casablanca, Morocco. His destination in the USA is his cousin, Nathan Hertz. In the United States he repeats all medical exams as he becomes an American citizen. In August of 1943, Dr. Hertz volunteers in the US-Army and serves until the end of the war, being promoted to the rank of Captain of the 179th General Hospital. He is honorably discharged on September 11, 1946 at Fort Dix, New Jersey. He remains in the United States until 1948, then returns to Europe and practices medicine in the city of Luxembourg. Doctor Simon Hertz passes away on August 9, 1983 in Crans-sur-Sierre, Switzerland.

10 Extreme and Unusual Elevators Around the Globe
By Christopher Stephens,
Toptenz, 5 November 2018.

Elevators. These vertical transport machines in buildings worldwide might seem mundane, but certain elevators cross the bounds into the extreme by their sheer exceptionality. In this account, discover the 10 most noteworthy elevators constructed worldwide, ranging from a lift inside a giant aquarium, an elevator that crawls up the world’s largest dome, and the fastest elevators in operation…

10. AquaDom


The AquaDom in Berlin, Germany is something that must be seen or, better yet, experienced to be believed. This elevator is a lift that rises up through an absolutely gigantic indoor, cylindrical aquarium filled with live fish in the DomAquarée complex. The AquaDom structure itself is in a hotel within the complex, while other elements of the complex include offices, a restaurant, a museum, and a more traditional aquarium. The tallest free-standing aquarium in the world with a tank height of 52 feet on top of a 30-foot base, the AquaDom is defined by an elevator that travels through the tank and offers incredible views of bony fish, cartilaginous fish, and marine invertebrates.

The huge tank is formed from acrylic, the product of American company International Concept Management Inc. Construction of the outside of the giant water-holding structure was formed from 12 panels, while the elevator-holding tube was formed from three parts joined together. Home to 50 types of fish, the aquarium measures approximately 36 feet in diameter. The water-holding capacity of the tank through which the elevator travels is 260,000 US gallons. At the top of the AquaDom, a walkway extends horizontally to top floors.

9. Oregon City Municipal Elevator


You might have read A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, but the case of Oregon City is the tale of one city, but with two very distinct geographic levels, and it might not be something with which you’re as familiar. In the early years of Oregon City, the majority of the city was built on low elevation land close to the Willamette River. Growth led to more construction onto a large bluff. Eventually, a plan was hatched to create an outdoor elevator linking the two disparately elevated neighborhoods. An initial 1912 vote failed, but subsequent reconsideration later that year garnered enough votes to pass. The project was then opposed by blufftop residents, especially one who refused to provide access land, eventually losing to the city in a Supreme Court case.

The remarkable Oregon City Municipal Elevator stands cliffside and rises 130 feet. The tower looks like a concrete tube with an observation deck near the top that’s reminiscent of the stereotypical UFO shape seen in popular flying saucer depictions. Linking the two neighborhoods at different heights, the bizarre structure is the only outdoor municipal elevator in the United States. The original water-powered elevator was built in 1915, while the current elevator was built from 1954-1955. The elevator is free to the public to use, but as there is an operator, hours are subject to some limitations. Fortunately for travelers, the hours of service are generous.

8. Bailong Elevator


China is home to some of the most impressive works of engineering on the planet. The diverse landscapes of China also host stunning natural scenery, characterized by extreme mountain landscapes complete with gigantic stone spires and sheer cliff walls rising hundreds of feet. Where these two natural elements combine, some modern wonders of engineering and outdoor attractions can be found. Zhangjiajie National Forest Park in China, with its towering cliffs, is home to a stunning modern work of engineering and innovation that ranks highly among the world’s extreme elevators. The Bailong (Meaning “One Hundred Dragons”) Elevator is a glass elevator that holds the Guinness World Record for highest outdoor lift on the planet.

Ascending to a height of 1,070 feet, the elevator rises against massive sandstone cliffs that define the extreme geology and geography of the park. The lift offers unbelievable views of the surrounding mountains, spires, and cliffs, contrasting towering natural stone pillars with lush broadleaf forest. In such a rugged natural landscape in a country with a number of active seismic zones, concern over natural disasters presents a subject of consideration. One comfort is that earthquake sensors are part of the design of the infrastructure for the Bailong Elevator.

7. Hammetschwand


Switzerland is known for its castles and mountains, and now you can also know about the remarkable outdoor elevator close to Lake Lucerne. Near the northern boundaries of the Swiss Alps stands the imposing mountain Bürgenstock, jutting into the lake. Standing 3,658 feet above sea level, the horn-like mountain boasts an expansive plateau, plus a nearly vertical north face that plunges into Lake Lucerne below. At the top section of this impressive stepped cliff is an outdoor elevator remarkable in its height, construction, and location, known as the Hammetschwand Lift. A castle turret-like peak marks the top of an awesome elevator that’s 502 feet tall. The elevator connects a stony path on Bürgenstock to the top lookout point known as the Hammetschwand.

Despite its remarkable engineering and such difficult natural surroundings, the Hammetschwand Lift is not at all new. Rather incredibly, the structure was built in 1905, with subsequent equipment overhauls to modernize the lift service. Talk about early advancement! This amazing structure is Europe’s tallest outdoor elevator, and the 502-foot ride in the Hammetschwand Lift is exceptionally fast for such a conveyance. It takes less than a single minute to get to the top, where views of Lake Lucerne and the Alps are appreciated from the lookout point and the bridge that connects the lift tower to the cliffside lookout.

6. Andrew Walker’s Bottomless Elevator Illusion

wps29E1.tmp

British artist Andrew Walker is known for his interesting projects and unusual creative designs, but his work took a rather terrifying elevator-related turn when he created a promotional piece that was installed in an elevator at the Southside Wandsworth Shopping Centre located in London’s Wandsworth Town. The work featured the illusion of a gaping hole taking up most of the elevator floor, even depicting the empty shaft below. Ragged edges completed the stunning - but admittedly terrifying - illusion. And what was being promoted? A subterranean ride.

The jagged edges and missing floor view even replicated operational equipment expected to be found in an elevator shaft, while a warning sign in the shaft was even depicted. The shocking graphic surprised many who opened the elevator door to find the hole in the lift floor. While the stunt was admittedly very creative, one might wonder if there might be some risks of unintended consequences. For example, what if someone was so startled that they froze and got hit by the door? Another possibility worth considering would be whether someone could be so badly startled by the bottomless elevator that they could suffer a heart attack or other related medical emergency.

5. Skyview Elevator


An elevator, in our typical perception, is a lift that helps us travel in a direction that’s simply perpendicular to the ground; straight up, or straight back down to ground floor. But the geometry of how an elevator functions may be markedly different from popular concepts of what an elevator is, in fact. One of the most bizarre and unique elevators in the world is located in Stockholm, Sweden and astounds the first-time viewer - and especially the first time rider - by traveling on a simply incredible curved path. The geometry of the Skyview Elevator presents a complete departure from our standard mental image of an elevator in operation.

The Skyview elevator system consists of two separate glass-paned gondolas, which are themselves spherically shaped. The two spheres then crawl in an arc along tracks extending from the base to the summit of the gigantic, round, and aptly named Globen Arena. The Globen Arena is the largest spherical building on the planet. Upon reaching the top, the elevator gondolas will have reached 425 feet above sea level. The result is two tiny, glass-windowed spheres crawling up the side of an immense sphere. The shapes match in harmony, while the contrast in size between the little traveling spheres and the “host” sphere is enormous.

4. Shanghai Tower Elevator


Waiting for an elevator to come in the first floor may be tiresome. Once on the elevator, the ride may take some time before you get you to your destination. However, in an interesting evolution of architecture and engineering, as buildings get taller, elevators have been getting faster and faster. The spectacular Shanghai Tower is a building measuring 2,073-feet, 5-inches tall. The giant tower, with its unusual twisting shape, holds not only the world record for having the world’s highest observation deck in any built structure, but also contains three high-speed elevators that hold the Guinness World Record for being the world’s fastest elevators.

Engineered to precision with high power and efficiency, the super lifts of Shanghai Tower are capable of reaching maximum speeds of 45.8 miles-per-hour. The high-speed lifts travels to a height of 121 stories in the tower, offering riders a bold rush to dizzying heights. Video screens track progress between floors. The regular elevator runs in the building are still blindingly fast at 40 miles-per-hour, but the 45.8 MPH rides are performed with an onboard operating technician from Mitsubishi Electric, the company that built the record-holding elevator system.

3. Gateway Arch Elevator


Remarkable structures require equally complicated and advanced elevator systems to handle the heights and challenging routes they may present. In St. Louis, Missouri stands the tallest arch on the planet, the 630-foot-tall Gateway Arch. Constructed primarily out of stainless steel and concrete with numerous observation windows present, the towering Gateway Arch is also the tallest man-made monument in the Western Hemisphere. From the outside, the inverted U-shaped arch - which tapers notably from the base - does not look like an accessible building. However, visitor access is a defining characteristic of the arch, which is both a stunning monument to view from the outside and a structure offering a vantage point at an incredible height.

Bringing visitors to the top of the Gateway Arch is a tram-like elevator system some might call claustrophobia-inducing, taking visitors to the narrow but window-filled observation deck at the structure’s vertex. The viewing deck of the arch is a shockingly compact space, yet the angled windows provide magnificent views of St. Louis far below. Forming a characteristic and well appreciated element defining the St. Louis skyline, the arch is considered a monument to pioneer settlement of the Western United States. Aircraft have concerningly made illegal passes through the arch on multiple occasions.

2. Suur Munamägi Observation Tower


Eastern Europe is home to some of the most remarkable structures and architectural creations on the planet. One of the most interesting construction projects of note is the Suur Munamägi Observation Tower in Estonia. The observation tower is the tallest point in Estonia, and in fact in all of the Baltics. Built on land that’s 1,043 feet above sea level, the tower rises another 95 feet into the air.

Boasting a multitude of glass windows, a white exterior finish, and concrete and brick construction, the tower (which was constructed in 1939 and dramatically renovated in 1969) looks undeniably space age. In 2005 the elevator, which currently defines the tower as offering one of the most remarkable rides on the planet, was installed.

Visitors ride up the tower on an incredible exterior elevator journey, eventually reaching the observation deck that offers a 50-kilometer view of the surrounding area. The Suur Munamägi Observation Tower is an amazing asset to the nation for Estonia, but it’s not for those with vertigo! In the cold of winter, an interesting visual effect occurs as the white paint of the building matches the snow-covered trees growing near the tower.

1. Japan’s Largest Passenger Elevator


Toshiba Corporation, a Tokyo-based multi-national, might be known best as a company that builds quality computers. However, the company produces a vast array of products, ranging from lighting and power systems to industrial infrastructure. Little known is one particularly remarkable achievement of this company: the creation of the largest passenger elevators in Japan. Located in Tokyo’s spectacular Sumitomo Fudosan Roppongi Grand Tower are four monster elevators that can carry a stunning 90 passengers from the first floor up to the 29th.

From that point, smaller elevators can take passengers to their destination floor. The elevators weigh just over 13,000 pounds, with a width of just under 11 feet and a depth of just over 10 feet. The huge elevators are notably fast at 984.25 feet-per-second. Two of the four giant elevators are fronted with glass, giving the riders a sweeping view of Tokyo as they are lifted en masse to higher floors. Due to the special safety considerations in designing and operating these high-speed, high-capacity elevators, double safety devices - one being located at the bottom as usual and a second one added to the top - are installed on these four behemoths.

          Human rights advocates: UN must address Chinese internment camps      Cache   Translate Page      

Geneva, Switzerland, Nov 7, 2018 / 12:41 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Human rights advocates are calling on the United Nations to address reports of Chinese internment camps holding 1 million Muslim minorities in Northwest China.

The call comes shortly before a review of China’s human rights record on November 6 by the U.N. Human Rights Council. The last review of China’s human rights was in 2013.

Ex-detainees have said these camps include abuse and political indoctrination, the Guardian has reported.

Researchers believe an estimated 1 million Muslim Uighurs have been detained at these camps. British diplomats, who visited Xinjiang in August, have confirmed those numbers, according to officials.

“The Human Rights Council must send an unequivocal message to the Chinese government that their campaign of systematic repression in the XUAR (Xinjiang Uighur autonomous region), including the arbitrary detention of up to 1 million people, must end,” said Patrick Poon, China researcher at Amnesty International.

Poon was among numerous human rights advocates at an activist forum on China held in Geneva Nov. 2.  

Sharon Hom, executive director Human Rights in China, also attended the forum.

“The detention of over a million ethnic Uighurs is a tipping point for the international community. They really can’t look the other way now,” Hom told Reuters.

Dolkun Isa, president of the World Uighur Congress, stressed the urgency of the situation.

“In the last five years, generally the human rights situation in China has been getting worse, particularly in east Turkestan (Xinjiang) and Tibet, there has been an unimaginable deterioration,” he told Reuters.

The Washington Post reported that the chairman of China’s Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, Shohrat Zakir, stated earlier this month that the camps do exists but are a “vocational education and training program” aimed at curbing terrorism.

China has said that it is responding to threats in Xinjiang posed by Islamist militants and separatists. However, it has rejected accusations of mistreatment in Xinjiang or Tibet.

          Chief Secretary clears air on Hong Kong's human rights situation at UN Forum (with photos)      Cache   Translate Page      
     The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) Working Group of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) held a review meeting in Geneva, Switzerland today (November 6, Geneva time) to consider China's third report, which covers the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and Macao Special Administrative Region. 
 
     A team of HKSAR Government officials, led by the Chief Secretary for Administration, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, attended the meeting as members of the China delegation.
 
     Mr Cheung spoke at the meeting in his capacity as the Deputy Head of Delegation led by the Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Le Yucheng. 
 
     Some 150 Member States spoke at the meeting today and eight of them gave oral comments and four submitted written comments on the report submitted by the HKSAR.
 
     In response to concerns and questions raised by Member States, Mr Cheung reiterated that Hong Kong enjoyed a high degree of autonomy under "one country, two systems" and that fundamental rights and freedoms were all guaranteed by the Basic Law. 
 
     "Recent concerns over some aspects of Hong Kong's human rights situation are unwarranted, unfounded and unsubstantiated.  They arise from misconception and a lack of understanding of our real situation," he stressed. 
 
     "We are firmly committed to protecting press freedom. We do not exercise any censorship.
 
     "On a recent work visa extension case, we will not comment on any specific decision on our immigration control.  All such decisions are made by our immigration authorities under the laws and prevailing policies, having regard to individual circumstances of each case.  
 
     "Any concerns that Hong Kong's freedom of speech and of the press is under threat are totally groundless.  On the contrary, we maintain an environment conducive to the operation of a free and active press.   Some 80 foreign media organisations operate in Hong Kong and rigorously perform their role as a watchdog," Mr Cheung emphasised.
    
     Speaking on the eligibility for running in the Legislative Council election, Mr Cheung pointed out that "Article 1 of the Basic Law stipulates that HKSAR is an inalienable part of the People's Republic of China." 
 
      "HKSAR has the duty to safeguard our country's sovereignty, security and development interests.  A person who promotes 'Hong Kong independence' or 'self-determination' or advocates independence as an option cannot uphold the Basic Law and swear allegiance to HKSAR," he emphasised. 
 
     Mr Cheung said that the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress had the ultimate authority to interpret the Basic Law under Article 158.  The Court of Final Appeal agreed that the Standing Committee's interpretation was valid and binding on our courts.  As for Article 104 relating to oath-taking when assuming specified public offices, the Standing Committee's interpretation simply explained clearly the meaning of that Article without changing its content.
 
     Whilst the HKSAR Government would not comment further on the decision to ban an organisation under the Societies Ordinance as appeal has been lodged, Mr Cheung pointed out that "Hong Kong people do enjoy freedom of association and expression but, like any other jurisdictions, such freedom is not absolute.  The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights provides that restrictions may be imposed by law if this is necessary to protect national security or public safety, public order, or the rights and freedoms of others.  This is mirrored in the Hong Kong Bill of Rights."
     
     Mr Cheung took the opportunity to dispel the misunderstanding that some protesters were targeted for exercising their civil rights. 
 
     "I must clarify that these protesters were convicted not because of their beliefs or their exercising civil rights, but because of their disorderly or violent conduct in breach of the law.  They have crossed the line separating the lawful exercise of constitutional rights from unlawful activities subject to sanctions," Mr Cheung explained.
 
     "I must say that the number of public meetings and processions in Hong Kong last year was ten times over 1997, and the overwhelming majority of these activities were orderly and peaceful.  This demonstrates that freedom of peaceful assembly is fully respected," Mr Cheung said.
 
     On speculations of authorities of other jurisdictions taking law enforcement actions in Hong Kong, Mr Cheung said that the Hong Kong Police had investigated and found no evidence in support of such claims.  
 
     The UN Working Group meeting noted that since the establishment of the HKSAR in 1997, Hong Kong had remained the world's freest economy, a vibrant international financial and business centre, a thriving logistics and tourism hub, as well as one of the safest cities in the world. 
 
     "We are committed to building a caring and fair Hong Kong, with the Government investing heavily in education, medical services, welfare, infrastructure, poverty alleviation and helping the ethnic minorities. 
 
     "Such remarkable achievements are underpinned by our core values and unique institutional strengths which make Hong Kong tick.  Hong Kong will continue to forge ahead as Asia's world city with openness, inclusiveness and diversity under the successful, innovative and well-tried 'one country, two systems'," Mr Cheung highlighted. 
 
     The delegation will attend the meeting to be held on November 9 when the report on China will be adopted by the UNHRC Working Group.
 
     The human rights situation in Hong Kong was reported to the Working Group during the review meeting. 
 
     The meeting noted that since the establishment of the HKSAR in 1997, the HKSAR Government "has been implementing 'one country, two systems' and 'Hong Kong people administering Hong Kong' under a high degree of autonomy in strict accordance with the Basic Law of the HKSAR and with the full support of the Central People's Government." 
 
     The rule of law, executive, legislative and independent judicial power and power of final adjudication, as well as human rights and freedom are all fully guaranteed by the Basic Law.  Hong Kong has been ranked as the world's most open and freest economy for many years.  Such achievement is underpinned by HKSAR's strengths such as the fine tradition of rule of law, a free and open market, an efficient public sector and a robust institutional framework.  
 
     The Working Group also noted that, alongside with the promotion of economic development, the HKSAR Government had devoted significant resources to education, poverty alleviation, helping the disadvantaged, caring for children and support for the ethnic minorities, with a view to building a caring, equitable, inclusive and "people-oriented" society.  All these bear strong testimony to the successful implementation of "one country, two systems", the achievements of which are widely recognised.

          Response by CS at UNHRC Universal Periodic Review meeting      Cache   Translate Page      
     The Chief Secretary for Administration, Mr Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, attended the meeting under the Universal Periodic Review mechanism of the United Nations Human Rights Council today (November 6, Geneva time) in Geneva, Switzerland.  Following is the response made by Mr Cheung at the meeting:
 
Mr President,
 
     Human rights in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) are fully protected by the Basic Law, Hong Kong Bill of Rights Ordinance and other laws.  The rule of law, an independent judiciary and freedom of speech are amongst Hong Kong's core values. 
 
     Recent concerns over some aspects of our human rights situation are unwarranted, unfounded and unsubstantiated.  They arise from misconception and a lack of understanding of our real situation.  Let me explain.
 
     Under "one country, two systems", Hong Kong enjoys a high degree of autonomy.  Fundamental rights and freedoms are all guaranteed by the Basic Law.      
 
     We are firmly committed to protecting press freedom.  We do not exercise any censorship.  On a recent work visa extension case, we will not comment on any specific decision on our immigration control.  All such decisions are made by our immigration authorities under the laws and prevailing policies, having regard to individual circumstances of each case.  Any concerns that Hong Kong's freedom of speech and of the press is under threat are totally groundless.  On the contrary, we maintain an environment conducive to the operation of a free and active press.   Some 80 foreign media organisations operate in Hong Kong and rigorously perform their role as a watchdog.  
 
     As for the eligibility for running in the Legislative Council election, upholding the Basic Law and swearing allegiance to HKSAR is a basic legal duty of a legislator.  One cannot do so if one promotes "Hong Kong independence" or "self-determination" or advocates independence as an option. These run counter to the constitutional and legal status of Hong Kong SAR.  Article 1 of the Basic Law stipulates that Hong Kong SAR is an inalienable part of the People's Republic of China.  It is our duty to safeguard our country's sovereignty, security and development interests.
 
     On speculations of authorities of other jurisdictions taking law enforcement actions in Hong Kong, our Police have investigated and found no evidence in support of such claims.  
 
     On the decision to ban an organisation under the Societies Ordinance, as an appeal has been lodged, we will not comment further.  But let me stress that Hong Kong people do enjoy freedom of association and expression but, like any other jurisdictions, such freedom is not absolute.  The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) provides that restrictions may be imposed by law if this is necessary to protect national security or public safety, public order, or the rights and freedoms of others.  This is mirrored in the Hong Kong Bill of Rights. 
 
     On the misunderstanding that some protesters were targeted for exercising their civil rights, I must clarify that these protesters were convicted not because of their beliefs or their exercising civil rights, but because of their disorderly or violent conduct in breach of the law.  They have crossed the line separating the lawful exercise of constitutional rights from unlawful activities subject to sanctions.  I must say that the number of public meetings and processions in Hong Kong last year was ten times over 1997, and the overwhelming majority of these activities were orderly and peaceful.  This demonstrates that freedom of peaceful assembly is fully respected.
 
     On interpretation of the Basic Law, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (the Standing Committee) has the ultimate authority to do so under Article 158 of the Basic Law. This is part of our constitutional order.  Our Court of Final Appeal agrees that the Standing Committee's interpretation is valid and binding on our courts. 
 
     As for Article 104 relating to oath-taking when assuming specified public offices, the Standing Committee's interpretation simply explains clearly the meaning of that Article without changing its content.

          Hong Kong Fintech Week world's first cross-border fintech event (with photos)      Cache   Translate Page      
     Hong Kong Fintech Week came to an end on Friday (November 2) in Shenzhen, reflecting the key cross-border theme of the programme. The five-day event was packed with important announcements, presentations and panel sessions covering all key aspects of financial technology (fintech), and involved experts from around the globe and some of the world's biggest fintech companies. It all combined to set Hong Kong apart as a fintech leader in Asia.  
 
     Presented by Invest Hong Kong (InvestHK), Fintech Week drew more than 8,000 attendees from over 50 economies, more than 260 world-class speakers, 100 exhibitors, 60 start-ups and 1,000-plus business matching meetings. There were plentiful side events, including visits to innovation labs and education events organised by universities. The Week was truly global, featuring international pavilions hosted by Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel and the UK, and with trade delegations from Japan, Mainland China, Singapore, Korea, Spain, Switzerland and the US. The energy and the exchanges during the Week were unparalleled.
 
     The event has grown substantially larger in terms of attendance, exhibitors and venue size. The high-quality content and networking opportunities captured the attendees' imagination in the first two days with FinovateAsia and then in days three to five with the main conference programme organised by Finnovasia. On Friday in Shenzhen, delegates attended a short seminar cum luncheon with local business and government officials, plus fintech company visits to Tencent, WeBank and ZhongAn.
 
     The Government's strong backing for the fintech sector and the Week was evident in a keynote speech by the Financial Secretary, Mr Paul Chan. He highlighted the rapid growth of Hong Kong's fintech sector, including some of the very recent developments, reinforcing the message behind InvestHK's new tagline for Fintech HK: "Launch, Leap, Lead".   
 
     There were more than 300 reporter visits to Fintech Week over the five-day period, and journalists were provided with plenty of news and fresh information to write about. The news began to flow Tuesday evening at the Fintech Week launch event hosted at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX). The Chief Executive of the HKEX, Mr Charles Li, announced that the HKEX will be working with Digital Asset to "introduce the first blockchain platform in the financial services industry in Hong Kong". He said this will initially be for Stock Connect, or Blockchain Connect, adding, "If it works with Stock Connect, there's no reason why we can't extend it to the broader market."
 
     Wednesday and Thursday provided more for the regulatory connoisseur. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) held a ceremony on Wednesday to launch eTradeConnect, the HKMA's blockchain trade finance platform, with the 18 companies involved.

     On Thursday, after a keynote speech by the Chief Executive Officer of the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), Mr Ashley Alder, in which he gave context for an important forthcoming SFC announcement on cryptocurrencies, the announcement followed. The SFC Regulatory Sandbox will be used to monitor the activities of virtual asset exchanges, with a view to setting up a framework for potential regulation and licensing.

Reporter
Educational psychologist David Berliner is one of this country’s most distinguished education researchers. 
Regents’ professor emeritus at Arizona State University, he is a former president of the American Educational Research Association and a former dean of the College of Education at Arizona State. He has also taught at the University of Arizona, the University of Massachusetts and Stanford University, as well as universities in Canada, Australia, the Netherlands, Denmark, Spain and Switzerland.
Berliner has won numerous awards in education and written more than 200 articles, chapters and books. Among his best-known works are two books he co-wrote, “The Manufactured Crisis: Myths, Fraud, and the Attack on America’s Public Schools” and “Collateral Damage: How High-Stakes Testing Corrupts America’s Schools.” He co-edited the first handbook of educational psychology, and his most recent co-written book, “50 Myths & Lies That Threaten America’s Public Schools,” was published in 2014.
Berliner sent the following to me. He explained that some of his students had asked how he planned to vote in the midterm elections next month, and he decided to explain in written detail. I am publishing it because it is more than an explanation of one man’s electoral preferences but a detailed look at public schools today and the state of efforts to “reform” them.

By David Berliner
As the midterm elections draw near my students asked me to talk a bit about my voting preferences. I decided to write out my answer to them because my response is lengthy and perhaps a bit unusual.
I asked my students and colleagues not to vote for those who want to improve or reform the schools. I told them that I was done voting for politicians who spout this foolishness over and over again! Too many of them are wasting their time, my time, our money, and they are hurting our country, as well.
I explained that the big problems of American education are not in America’s schools. So, reforming the schools, as Jean Anyon once said, is like trying to clean the air on one side of a screen door. It cannot be done!
It’s neither this nations’ teachers nor its curriculum that impede the achievement of our children. The roots of America’s educational problems are in the numbers of Americans who live in poverty. America’s educational problems are predominantly in the numbers of kids and their families who are homeless; whose families have no access to Medicaid or other medical services. These are often families to whom low-birth-weight babies are frequently born, leading to many more children needing special education.
Educational problems also have roots in the numbers of kids living in dysfunctional families where opioid and other drug addictions, or mental illness, is not treated. Our educational problems have their roots in families where food insecurity or hunger is a regular occurrence, or where those with increased lead levels in their bloodstream get no treatments before arriving at a schools’ doorsteps. Our problems stem also from the harsh incarceration laws that break up families instead of counseling them and trying to keep them together. And our problems relate to harsh immigration policies that keep millions of families too frightened to seek out better lives for themselves and their children.
Yes, of course, there are in-school problems that need fixing, such as the re-employment of all the social workers, nurses, counselors and school psychologists lost after the recession of 2008. While all these people are important staff at their schools, we should remember that their skills are particularly needed because of all the problems I just mentioned above.
So many of these problems of American education have their start in the tracking of America’s children — but not necessarily by their schools! Our children are tracked into different neighborhoods on the basis of their family’s income, ethnicity, and race. This is where our school problems begin. We seem blind to the fact that housing policies that promote that kind of segregation are educational policies, as well.
When you allow overwhelmingly wealthy, middle-class, and poor neighborhoods to develop, you destroy the chance for the neighborhood school to help better our children by bringing diverse income, racial, and ethnic groups together.
Neighborhood schools, affectionately supported in American folk beliefs as a great equalizer in the melting pot we think of as America, now perform on assessments almost exactly as that neighborhoods’ income predicts they will. The neighborhood school in a society with an apartheid-lite housing policy is killing us!
Do we have an apartheid-lite system of education? We certainly do not have the legally sanctioned apartheid of South Africa. But we should recognize that we do have heavily segregated systems of housing. In New York and Illinois, over 60 percent of black kids go to schools where 90-100 percent of the kids are nonwhite and mostly poor. In California, Texas and Rhode Island, 50 percent or more of Latino kids go to schools where 90-100 percent of the kids are also not white, and often poor. Similar statistics hold for American Indian kids. And throughout rural America there is almost always a “wrong-side-of-the-tracks” neighborhood, or a trailer park area, in which poorer people are expected to live. And kids in those neighborhoods generally go to schools with the other kids from those neighborhoods.
These realities of contemporary American life have powerful effects on schooling in America. For example, I can predict quite accurately the percentage of kids that score at certain levels on standardized tests by knowing characteristics of the families who send their kids to their neighborhood school. I don’t need to know anything at all about the teachers or curriculum at that school. If I want to, I can probably skip the expense of the test!
Research demonstrates that If you know the average income, the average level of parental education, and the percentage of single-parent households in a community — just these three variables — you can predict with great accuracy the performance on the standardized test scores used by that community to judge its schools. We don’t really have to give the tests because we already can accurately predict the aggregate scores of schools and townships. It’s not the quality of our teachers or curriculum that allows such remarkably accurate predictions: Demographics allow for that. Although demographics may not be destiny for an individual, it is the best predictor of a school’s outcomes — independent of that school’s teachers, administrators and curriculum!
We can demonstrate that fact again by going to America’s heartland, Nebraska. In a recent year, the poverty rate in a middle school in the Elkhorn school district, near Omaha, was under 3 percent. In that same year the poverty rate in a middle school in the nearby city of Omaha was about 90 percent. If you determined the poverty rate for every middle school and correlated that with their achievement scores in reading on the Nebraska State Accountability system (NeSA), you would find that they correlate -.92. This is almost perfect prediction!
The higher the poverty rate, the lower the scores. This allows me, if I wanted to, to skip the test altogether because I can predict with great accuracy the aggregate performance of the students in these Nebraska schools. And if I wanted to know how individual students were doing, I would simply ask a teacher. They really are quite good at describing the skills possessed by each of their students!
What we are left to wonder about from Nebraska’s data is this: Do all the good teachers and administrators in Nebraska work in the Elkhorn district? Similarly, we must wonder if all the bad teachers and administrators work in Omaha’s poorest schools? I don’t think so! It is much more likely to be family income, and all that correlates with income, that determines the standardized achievement test scores in Nebraska and elsewhere.
Another research study demonstrates that standardized achievement tests show huge differences in scores based on the income of students’ families, and the schools to which that family income allows access. In this international test with an average score of about 500, low-income kids, in schools that cater to low-income kids, scored 455. But high-income kids in schools that cater to high-income kids scored 607! That is about a standard deviation and half difference — a huge difference. The fiscal, social, and intellectual capital available to kids in these socioeconomically separated schools produces these large differences — independent of the quality of teachers, administrators, or the curriculum used.
These differences in school achievement occur as a function of differences in family income and the housing choices associated with family income, as well as the employment policies, health policies, and policies about law enforcement and the sentencing of those found guilty of crimes. It is this profusion of policies, rarely thought about simultaneously, that determines the huge differences in achievement scores between schools, and between school districts.
It’s really not the teachers. It’s really not the curriculum. It is us! We the people, inhabiting the richest country in the world, have kept too many vulnerable families in positions of vulnerability for far too long. That is what affects their children and the achievement levels of the schools attended by those children. Did you know that when you fall into poverty in the United States of America through loss of job, illness, drug or gambling addiction problems, and the like, you are likely to spend more time in poverty than in many other Western countries? Other countries have social services to get families back on track.
We have limited such services, and families that fall into poverty in the United States are more likely to spend many more years in poverty than in other Western countries. I think too many contemporary lawmakers in the United States believe what our Founding Fathers believed — namely, that it is God’s will that some families fall into poverty. Meanwhile, in many European democracies, the state tries to relieve god of her responsibility to determine which families are destined to live in poverty!
Despite the irrefutable relationship of poverty to school achievement, some states, like my own, go on to promote an insulting and highly misleading educational policy. We Arizonans grade our schools A-F (based on their test scores). When we do this, of course, all we have done is judge, from A-F, the kinds of lives that are lived by the majority of the kids at that school. In reality, it’s not the quality of the schools that is assessed. Instead, what is assessed are the lives of the families who attend those schools. The grading of schools serves the real estate community quite well. But those grades tell the public nothing about the quality of teaching and caring in a particular school.
Fifty years ago, James Coleman shocked the education community by asserting that a plethora of out-of-school factors were the real determinants of in-school quality. A recent re-analysis of that report found that Coleman did not recognize in his own data the power of the cohort in a grade, or in a school, to also have a large influence on the quality of schooling, separate from the out-of-school factors that determine school quality.
Independent of those out-of-school factors (such as family income and neighborhood characteristics) were the characteristics of the cohort in one’s class or school. The cohort had independent effects on learning outcomes. What this means is that in America’s neighborhood schools, an apartheid-lite system of housing affects scores in two ways: first through the out-of-school factors that negatively affect achievement, and secondly, though powerful cohort effects in the schools attended by children of a particular neighborhood.
Neighborhoods that might be just a few blocks from each other have a formidable influence on school cultures through the cohort effects at a school site. Students just a few blocks apart have been found to have quite different adult earnings and social status. Middle-class visions of appropriate behavior and preparation for college may be the norms developed at one neighborhood school, while lower-class visions of appropriate behavior and schooling could well be the norms that pervade another school just a few blocks away.
So the A-F grades given to schools according to their achievement test scores really have their roots in neighborhood income; the percentage of single-parent families in the neighborhood; the churn rates of teachers and administrators at the school, as well as the churn rate of families in the neighborhood; the absentee rates of students at the school; and so forth. These A-F grades simply do not provide insight into the quality of the teachers and the nurturance of students at a particular school site.
Neighborhood schools in the U.S. hurt our nation. But this is not a reason to support charter or private schools, which are too frequently highly selective about who they let in and who they are willing to keep in their schools. In a democracy, if any public dollars are used for schooling, that school should serve all our kids, just as we expect the police and fire departments to serve us all.
Despite the naysayers and advocates for charter and private education at public expense, it turns out that America’s public education system is remarkably successful. For example, on the recent PISA international tests, white public-school students in the U.S.A. outscored students in Korea and Hong Kong in science. That’s not too shabby, but it was underreported. And on the reading test, our white public-school kids outscored Korea and Japan, two nations that are often held up as models for our schools to emulate. Again, that’s not too shabby! We should note that white kids in the United States have a poverty rate of about 9 percent, while black and Hispanic kids, who did not score nearly as well, have poverty rates exceeding 20 percent! Could it be poverty and its sequelae, rather than teacher incompetence, is at the root of America’s educational problems?
Our public schools produced other effects our newspapers too often refuse to report. For example, in international ratings of entrepreneurship, we hold the highest ranking in the world, both for men and for woman. In international comparisons of creativity, we rank among the highest in the world. In gross domestic product earned per hour worked by American labor, we are by far the leaders of the industrialized world.
What we have is an amazingly successful system of public education, overall, but one that simultaneously fails too many of our minorities and too many of our poor people. In my opinion, democracy’s most serious contemporary problem is the fact that minority status and poverty are so highly correlated.
What would provide a public-school system that might work for all its attendees? I’d nominate housing policies that can help integrate various income and racial groups who attend our public schools; policies related to a minimum wage and employer-provided benefits, such that workers can afford decent housing and nutrition, and where workers can expect a decent pension at the end of their working lives; policies that provide access to health care for all; policies that help our police and our courts to be more family-friendly. The policies I see most helping our schools are not directed toward teaching and learning in our schools. My concerns are elsewhere.
I am certainly not against improving our schools. Like many others who study schooling, I have my own suggestions about how to do that, based on some solid research evidence. But if I can find them, I am only going to vote for those who understand that the root problems of our schools are not in our schools. It is past time that we stop worrying about reforming and improving our schools. Instead, we need to ensure that we have programs that can improve our society. Shifting our gaze away from schooling and looking instead at the quality of the lives lived by the families whose children attend our schools might prove to be the surest way to improve American education. From now on, candidates who understand that are the ones who will get my vote.

A visit to a cathedral near Basel reveals how one religious community practises its faith even as more people in Switzerland and across the West turn away from the church. The percentage of people in Switzerland who say they don’t belong to any religion increased by 13.5% between 2000 and 2016, according to the Federal Statistical Office. But in places like Arlesheim in northwestern Switzerland, churches and their services continue to be part of the community, despite certain challenges. Arlesheim’s cathedral was built in the 1680s as a satellite church for the one in Basel. It has become the town landmark, with its impressive exterior and interior architecture that was restored in the Rococo style of the late Baroque period. The church’s organ was made by renowned builder Johann Andreas Silbermann and is admired worldwide for its special sound. In mid-October, this parish and the one in the nearby town of Münchenstein both welcomed a new pastor. Reverend Sylvester Ihuoma ...

          A Magna Carta for the web?      Cache   Translate Page      


Do you know this man? He is Tim Berners Lee. What has he done so far in his life? Not much. Oh, he did invent the internet in 1989. What is he doing now? Well, he is trying to launch a 'Magna Carta for the web' to save the internet from abuse, according to Laurence Dodds at the Telegraph.
The 63-year-old was speaking at the Web Summit in Lisbon to launch a new "contract for the web" which asks internet companies to uphold a set of principles such as protecting privacy and being transparent about their algorithms.

...Sir Tim said: "For the first 15 years, most people just expected the web to do great things. They thought 'there'll be good and bad, that is humanity, but if you connect humanity with technology, great things will happen....

"What could go wrong? Well, duh: all kinds of things have gone wrong since. We have fake news, we have problems with privacy, we have problems with abuse of personal data, we have people being profiled in a way that they can be manipulated by clever ads."

Sir Tim, who developed the Web as a "side project" while working at the Cern research laboratory in Switzerland in the Eighties, has become increasingly vocal about what he sees as a perversion of his original vision.

He recently warned that tech giants such as Amazon and Google may have to be broken up in order to prevent them from amassing too much power, and has launched a project to decentralise data storage.

          Switzerland expects EU to extend bourse recognition by a year      Cache   Translate Page      
Swiss Finance Minister Ueli Maurer expects the EU to extend its recognition of Swiss bourse rules by another year, allowing cross-border stock trading beyond the end of 2018 as the sides try to hammer out an umbrella treaty on their economic ties. The European Union has said it could take punitive measures - including refusing to roll over recognition of bourse rules - should the treaty talks fail, touching off Swiss retaliation. "The question is: (would an extension be) provisional or definite? It is probably moving towards a provisional extension by a year," Swiss broadcaster SRF quoted Maurer as saying after meeting EU finance ministers in Brussels on Tuesday. Prospects for a treaty setting out Switzerland's ties to its biggest trading partner appeared to fade last month when negotiators could not reach a breakthrough after four years of talks. But a last push might be possible this year if Britain can nail down terms of an orderly exit from the bloc, and after a politically

          破壞臭氧化合物禁令見效 南極臭氧洞 2060 年完全修復      Cache   Translate Page      


聯合國周一 (5.11) 於葡萄牙首都里斯本發表最新報告,指出臭氧層自 2000 年起以每 10 年 1-3% 的速度修復,並將會在 2060 年恢復至 1980 年代水平。

該份每 4 年發表一次的報告由聯合國環境署 (UNEP) 、世界氣象組織 (WMO) 、美國太空總署 (NASA) 、美國商務部與歐盟委員會聯合撰寫,以監察大氣平流層的臭氧修復進度。各地臭氧層密度大不相同,在赤道附近最厚,兩極變薄,為地表生命阻擋致癌紫外線。

報告指,破壞臭氧層的 CFC (Chlorofluorocarbons, 氟氯烴 ) 與 HCFC (Hydrochlorofluorocarbons, 氫氯氟烴 ) 持續減少,改善臭氧洞情況。其中北半球和中緯度地區正以每 10 年 1-3% 速度修復,預計於 2030 年代全面復修。至於南半球和極地地區的臭氧層則分別於 2050 年和 2060 年回復到 1980 年代情況。

報告又指出,臭氧層健康得以改善全賴 1987 年 46 個國家簽訂《蒙特利爾議定書 (Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer)》,規定將 13 種 CFC 與 HCFC 的生產凍結在 1986 年規模。而明年簽署國會再聚首,討論議定書 2016 年訂下的基加利修訂案細節,加強取諦破壞臭氧層冷凍劑的使用。

聯合國環境署主席 Erik Solheim 表示,《蒙特利爾議定書》成為歷史上其中一個最成功的國際條約,是有原因的,並對基加利修訂案有很大期望。報告認為,基加利修訂案如全面落實,將會減少本世紀暖化最多達 0.4% ,對限止溫升逾 2°C 有一定幫助。

去年,有研究發現之前被科學界忽視的化合物二氯甲烷 (dichloromethane, CH2Cl2) 會減慢臭氧洞修復最多 30 年。該報告指,如果二氯甲烷排放比過去十年增加一倍,臭氧洞要完全修復將要等到 2100 年。即使撇除二氯甲烷排放影響,南極高層臭氧要到 2065 年才能達到 1980 年以前的水平。

本年中,有研究指其中一種被禁的化合物一氟三氯甲烷 (CFC-11) 排放量竟自 2013 年不斷上升,其後《紐約時報》與獨立調查員搜集資料與到中國進行調查,揭發中國內地仍有工廠非法製造該種冷凍劑及建築物泡沫隔熱層,會影響臭氧實際修復進度。

          Comment on Did Senate Republicans cave on Kavanaugh? by Yep      Cache   Translate Page      
Your list is wholly out context and largely meaningless. Cato's Human Freedom Index features 12 primary categories of measurement and 50 subcategories. Pulling out 1 of the 50 subcategories and shouting 'Eureka!', is the epitome of simpleton. First, of the countries you list, how determined do you imagine their despotic police states might be to recognize and record homicides - many of which are at the hands of said police state? After all, Cato can only base their analysis on the numbers made available. Second, the report is for 2017 - there were no genocides in any of these countries in 2017 (give Trump another year, I'm sure the new freedoms allowed Putin, Erdogon, Mohammed bin Salman, Duterte, Kim Jong Un ("we fell in love") and sundry other despot bff's of the Trump crime family will remedy this brief interlude) Here's the actual, notably gun-free, list to which Gerard referred to, from Cato - <i>The Human Freedom Index, 2017</i>: </blockquote>The top 10 jurisdictions in order were Switzerland, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Ireland, Australia, Finland, Norway, Denmark, and, tied at 9th place, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Selected countries rank as follows: Canada (11), Sweden (13), Germany (16), the United States (17),.. Out of 17 regions, the highest levels of freedom are in Western Europe, Northern Europe, and North America (Canada and the United States). The lowest levels are in the Middle East and North Africa, Eastern Europe</blockquote>

10 Astonishing Feats Of Modern Technology
By Julia Crawford,
Listverse, 5 November 2018.

Technology has developed so fast in recent years that we can’t imagine our lives without it. Now, thanks to some innovative and creative minds, the tech industry has the potential to change the course of our future. Whether it’ll revolutionize how we do things or how we treat certain diseases, technology is set to change the world as we know it.

Researchers have recently made some groundbreaking advancements, from a tiny microchip designed for better biometric security to a machine that can make gallons of fresh water straight out of the air. These innovations are impressive and offer us a glimpse at how we can improve our lives and create a more sustainable Earth.

Here are ten of the most astonishing feats of modern technology in recent times.

10. Multipurpose Implants

The people of Sweden have been lining up to get rice grain-sized microchips implanted into their hands. Biohax International is the company behind the chips and is one of the most prominent providers of the technology in Sweden. These microchips improve their users’ daily lives when it comes to accessing their homes, offices, and gyms, all with the simple swipe of a hand. The microchips are also designed to contain emergency contact details, social media profile information, and even e-tickets for events and train trips.

The microchips are inserted right above a user’s thumb using a syringe much like that which is used for vaccinations. The procedure is said to cost about US$180, and over 4,000 Swedes have already adopted the technology. Even Sweden’s largest train company has jumped aboard the new chipping trend by allowing its commuters to use their chips instead of tickets, and there’s even talk that this technology could soon be used to make payments in stores and restaurants.[1]

9. 3-D Metal Printing

3-D printing is a relatively new method of manufacturing which uses various kinds of plastic to make things. Now, companies like HP and GE have taken the first steps toward a making a new kind of additive manufacturing go mainstream by introducing 3-D metal printing products. HP’s 3-D Printing Business has recently introduced the HP Metal Jet, which is specifically made for the high-volume manufacturing of production-grade metal parts, quickly and at reduced cost. Manufacturers such as Parmatech have already deployed the HP Metal Jet for factory production. Some major customers placing orders include Volkswagen and Wilo as well as vertical-market manufacturers like Primo Medical Group and OKAY Industries.

GE Additive has also announced their own large metal printer called the Arcam EBM Spectra H, which is a high-heat 3-D printer meant to print with metals that are prone to cracking. Working at temperatures exceeding 1,000 degrees Celsius (1,832 °F), it can print with metals such as titanium aluminide and Alloy 718. It will also be able to support the printing of nickel super alloys starting in 2019. These two printers are set to define a new generation of additive manufacturing and offer a glimpse of the possibilities that lie ahead in the future.[2]

8. Synthetic Embryos

wpsF35A.tmp

Dutch scientists have made a revolutionary breakthrough in embryonic science by creating synthetic mouse embryos without the need for sperm or eggs. This achievement may lead to some promising implications for human infertility. Researchers from the MERLN Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine in the Netherlands used mouse cells that weren’t traditional sex cells to create “blastocyst-like structures.” By using two different types of mouse stem cells, the resulting mass of cells resembled that of a more traditional baby-forming process. When these structures were placed in the wombs of female mice, they grew for several days, which is a medical first.

This kind of biomedical technology can assist in infertility research when it comes to miscarriages that occur at the implantation stage of development. The lead researcher, Dr. Nicolas Rivron, said that his team will now be able to generate large numbers of these embryos to study them in detail. This could help them understand why some embryos fail to implant and possibly screen for drugs that help with fertility. On the other hand, efforts could be stymied, since anything relatable to genetic engineering tends to cause a bioethical controversy.[3]

An AI program developed by Paris-based art collective Obvious has produced a painting that sold for US$432,000 at an auction. Before the sale, Christie’s in New York estimated that the painting would fetch only around US$7,000 to US$10,000. The painting was called Portrait of Edmond Belamy, and it was produced using an algorithm as well as a data set of 15,000 portraits painted from the 14th to 20th centuries. The algorithm generated the image by comparing its own work to those in the data set until it couldn’t tell the two works apart.

The sale, which was organized by Christie’s specialist Richard Lloyd, attracted a significant amount of media attention. According to Lloyd, AI is one of several technologies that will have a big impact on the art market in the future, although it may be far too early to predict what that impact will be.[4]

6. Drones That Can Lift 40 Times Their Own Weight


Researchers at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland and Stanford University were able to develop a new line of small flying robots that can move objects 40 times their own weight. These drones are called FlyCroTugs (which stands for “flying, micro tugging robots”) and are equipped with a system of winches, adhesives, and microspines that allow them to latch onto just about anything. Even though the drones have some unchangable parts such as the winch, they are highly customizable to suit any situation. For instance, the grippers can be moved around depending on the landing surface, and additional accessories such as wheels can also be attached when a task calls for it.

Once the drones need to lift something, the grippers are deployed to connect with the object. These are a non-sticky adhesive designed by researchers who took some inspiration from the toes of geckos. The drone grippers create intermolecular forces between their pads and the surface of an object. If that isn’t enough, the microspines (which are a series of metal spikes resembling the point of a fishing hook) can be used. These drones can be used during sensitive situations such as rescue operations. Researchers were able to open a door by lassoing its handle, turning it, and pulling it until the door opened. In another test run, researchers attached a camera to the drone and used it to explore a crumbling structure.[5]

5. The Robot Farm


In San Carlos, California, a start-up company called Iron Ox created a fully autonomous farm. It’s a hydroponic indoor farm that relies on two machines to plant, care for, and harvest the produce. The first machine is a robot about as big as a car and weighs around 450 kilograms (1,000 lb). Its responsibilities include picking up the trays of plants and transporting them around the greenhouse. The second machine is a robotic arm that is responsible for the more refined manipulation tasks such as seeding and transplanting.

Once a tray of plants has grown enough, the mobile robot carries it to the processing area. Once there, the robotic arm moves the baby plants from the densely packed tray to containers with more space. The co-founder and CEO of Iron Ox, Brandon Alexander, claims that the company is able to do the equivalent 30 acres of outdoor farming in just a single acre on its robotic farm. The company wants to expand by building more of these robotic farms near urban centers to make produce that is fresher upon arrival. Currently, Iron Ox is growing leafy greens and herbs, but they plan to start producing other crops such as tomatoes in the future.[6]

4. Road That Charges Electric Vehicles

Sweden plans to have fossil fuel-free transportation in place by the year 2030, and the Swedish government has just implemented what could be a critical step toward making it a reality. A part of a road near Stockholm has been equipped to charge electric vehicles as they drive on it. The project, called eRoadArlanda, uses technology similar to overhead cables that charge electric trolleys and buses. Yet, the cables are built into the road. Once a retrofitted vehicle senses it’s on the electric road, an arm lowers onto the road and charges the car’s battery. The track works regardless of any kind of weather condition.

Although the system is designed to feed heavy truck loads, it will also be capable of charging cars and buses. The road will be paid for by billing the driver of each vehicle for the amount of electricity they’ve used while on the road. eRoadArlanda has completed 2.01 kilometers (1.25 mi) of the electrified road on a public highway as part of the test and plans to expand this technology to other parts of the country.[7]

3. Boston Dynamics’s First Commercial Robot


Boston Dynamics is well-known for its agile robots. Now, the company is set to release its very first commercial product to the market - a dog-like robot called the SpotMini. The commercial release was announced in May 2018, and plans are in place to start shipping out SpotMini robots in July 2019 at the rate of 1,000 units per year. The ultimate goal is to provide a flexible platform for a variety of applications, such as construction, delivery, security, and home assistance. The Mini’s closest “relative” robot, Spot, stands at 1.2 meters (4 ft) high and weighs about 73 kilograms (160 lb). Videos were uploaded to YouTube displaying its incredible capabilities, from navigating harsh terrain to staying on its feet when kicked.

The SpotMini has a sleek design, stands at about 0.9 meters (3 ft) high, and weighs 25 kilograms (55 lb). It can go wherever larger robots can’t, and with an optional snake-like arm, it can do things like open doors. Third parties will be able to design add-on tools thanks to a universal expansion port. Soon, it’ll become a regular occurrence to see a robot help people with daily tasks.[8]

2. App That Helps Accelerate Cancer Research

wps5C8D.tmp

The DreamLab app is an application that runs in the background of an idling phone which utilizes the wasted processing power to perform complex scientific calculations for research purposes. The Vodafone Foundation has recently announced that the users of the DreamLab app have helped cancer researchers to finish Project Genetic Profile, a project focused on calculating the genetic similarities between brain, lung, melanoma, and sarcoma cancers. The app will now be used to help with Project Demystify, which will ultimately help connect the dots between human physical traits and their genetic basis. The Chief of Informatics at the Garvan Institute, Dr. Warren Kaplan, said that the DreamLab app showed the power of “citizen science,” the collective effort of members of the community to make an impact on research progress.

Cancer is a disease of the DNA, and to understand it better, researchers have to analyze data from sequencing, or “decoding,” the DNA of cancer patients. This is where DreamLab steps in to help, with its users who have collectively contributed a whopping 20 million research calculations. New Zealanders have contributed over 220,000 “dreaming sessions,” which have helped to calculate the data three times faster than it would have originally taken.[9]

1. The Machine That Can Make Water Out Of Thin Air

A California-based team managed to create machines that can produce hundreds of gallons of fresh drinking water a day straight out of the air, which earned them a handsome US$1.5 million prize. The machines are dubbed “Skywater” and were created by the Skysource/Skywater Alliance, a team of sustainability experts from Venice, California. The machines, which are housed in giant metal boxes, are atmospheric water generators that condense water vapor from the air and turn it into drinking water. These machines can be powered by solar energy or the burning of biofuels. They’re perfect for households, farming, or even emergency relief efforts.

The Skysource/Skywater Alliance team received the prestigious Water Abundance XPRIZE from XPRIZE, a nonprofit organization from California that sometimes runs multimillion-dollar competitions geared toward creating solutions for the world’s problems. It was a two-year contest that sought to find answers to the global water crises by facilitating the development of new technologies.[10]

David Hertz, one of the leaders of the Skysource/Skywater Alliance, said that he’s excited to see what their machines can do for people living in parts of the world where water is becoming scarce. According to him, there’s more than enough water vapor in the air for the machines to extract. In fact, he says that there’s about “37.5 million billion gallons of water” in the atmosphere at any given time, which is more fresh water than all of the rivers on Earth.

          Human rights advocates: UN must address Chinese internment camps      Cache   Translate Page      

Geneva, Switzerland, Nov 7, 2018 / 12:41 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Human rights advocates are calling on the United Nations to address reports of Chinese internment camps holding 1 million Muslim minorities in Northwest China.

The call comes shortly before a review of China’s human rights record on November 6 by the U.N. Human Rights Council. The last review of China’s human rights was in 2013.

Ex-detainees have said these camps include abuse and political indoctrination, the Guardian has reported.

Researchers believe an estimated 1 million Muslim Uighurs have been detained at these camps. British diplomats, who visited Xinjiang in August, have confirmed those numbers, according to officials.

“The Human Rights Council must send an unequivocal message to the Chinese government that their campaign of systematic repression in the XUAR (Xinjiang Uighur autonomous region), including the arbitrary detention of up to 1 million people, must end,” said Patrick Poon, China researcher at Amnesty International.

Poon was among numerous human rights advocates at an activist forum on China held in Geneva Nov. 2.  

Sharon Hom, executive director Human Rights in China, also attended the forum.

“The detention of over a million ethnic Uighurs is a tipping point for the international community. They really can’t look the other way now,” Hom told Reuters.

Dolkun Isa, president of the World Uighur Congress, stressed the urgency of the situation.

“In the last five years, generally the human rights situation in China has been getting worse, particularly in east Turkestan (Xinjiang) and Tibet, there has been an unimaginable deterioration,” he told Reuters.

The Washington Post reported that the chairman of China’s Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, Shohrat Zakir, stated earlier this month that the camps do exists but are a “vocational education and training program” aimed at curbing terrorism.

China has said that it is responding to threats in Xinjiang posed by Islamist militants and separatists. However, it has rejected accusations of mistreatment in Xinjiang or Tibet.

via WordPress ift.tt/2OwL1e3

Over the weekend of October 13 and 14, added than a thousand bodies entered Sotheby’s in London to appearance the aftereffect of what is now arguably one of the best amazing moments of abreast art.

But above-mentioned to the $1.3 actor London bargain of the work—originally advantaged Girl with Balloon and afterwards declared a new assignment alleged Love is in the Bin afterwards bisected the canvas was disconnected by a accessory hidden in the frame—another comedy analytic the backer underpinnings of the art bazaar had already taken abode in Asia.

Orchestrated by Sotheby’s Hong Kong, Xuzhen Supermarket, a allotment of conceptual art, awash for added than HK$2 actor (US$256,000) at the end of September. The assignment is a replica of a archetypal burghal accessibility abundance in China abounding with appurtenances that attending like the absolute thing, but are empty. Spectators are arrive to browse the shelves and buy the containers, awash at the aforementioned amount as the absolute ones accessible at approved stores. The bearding client of the assignment at the auction, aloof like the shoppers who accept bought the abandoned goods, has bought annihilation but the abstraction and the absolute appropriate to agency the Shanghai-based artisan Xu Zhen to charm the artwork.

“Are you affairs an artwork? Or are you aloof affairs abandoned boxes? ” said Xu in an account with Quartzy, afterwards the sale. “The action of barter is allotment of the work.”

Although the two artworks are actual altered in agreement of ideas, beheading and medium, their bargain sales accept aloft the catechism of how to amount art like this. Are these works absolutely account hundreds of bags of dollars or are they aloof the art market’s adaptation of The Emperor’s New Clothes that no one wants to alarm out?

Sotheby’s alleged Banksy’s antic “the aboriginal artwork in history to accept been created alive during an auction,” authoritative “instant art apple history.” Some acclaimed the admirable statement, which if it had gone as planned (video) would accept angry an expensively purchased allotment of art into cardboard ribbons instead of a partially disconnected work. Others, like Jerry Saltz, chief art analyzer of New York Magazine, accept alloyed views. While he accepted Banksy’s antic for “disrupting the breeze of basic if alone for an evening”—it happened at the moment the assignment went beneath the bang at auction—he additionally criticized Sotheby’s in a tweet: “100% bogus. Annihilation to do with art.”

Saltz accursed the art bazaar as “a affectionate of impaired organism.” “People in the bazaar buy what added bodies in the bazaar buy. And suddenly, one of the things they are affairs changed,” he said in an account with NPR.

To the abrupt Brussels-based art beneficiary and advance broker Alain Servais, whose Servais Family Accumulating owns a all-inclusive ambit of artwork except paintings, the fizz surrounding Banksy’s antic alone highlights the abnegation of the acceptable Western art market.

“The art bazaar is based on the affairs of objects,” the 54-year-old told Quartzy. “Art is declared to be the best advanced and accessible to new development in society, but in actuality it’s controlled and endemic by a appealing bourgeois agglomeration of bodies who are still bedeviled with owning objects.”

What ability assume at aboriginal besom like critiques of the art apple ability absolutely be a concerted way for bargain houses to address to a new generation. Earlier, art auctions and the previews about them were a way for collectors in the arena to apprentice about art, bushing a charge created by a abridgement of museums and galleries. But added recently, auctions accept had a adamantine time architecture a afterward amid the adolescent affluent who aren’t as absorbed in paintings and carve by accustomed masters.

Younger collectors haven’t been advancing to auctions for some time, says Yuki Terase, Sotheby’s arch of abreast art, Asia. “They would rather go to Basel or Frieze,” she said, apropos to two arresting art fairs—Art Basel has shows in Basel, Switzerland, Miami Beach in the US, and Hong Kong; Frieze runs four art fairs including in London and New York.

“We accept been ambidextrous with agnate names, agnate works, for absolutely a continued time,” said Terase, who believes hard-to-pin-down assignment like Xuzhen Bazaar could advice draw aback a accumulation said to accent spending on adventures like biking over objects. Afterwards its bargain was announced, Terase said there was a billow of absorption from adolescent collectors at previews advanced of the auction.”They were absorbed back they learnt that we were putting this up for bargain at an auction, because this is not an accessible breeze that we are offering,” said Terase. “But we appetite to break relevant.”

Servais, the collector, says he believes that with the acceptance of the abstraction of the “sharing” economy, adumbrated by Uber or Airbnb, owning altar isn’t what’s activity to drive adolescent collectors. “It’s an change that challenges the art bazaar of tomorrow.”

For Xu, his assignment is a apology of the consumerism and commercialism accomplished by bodies in China every day. From the act of affairs abandoned bales on the shelves to the bargain of the concept, participants’ own adventures are allotment of the work, according to the artist.

“Overconsumption, affairs blank and affairs blank are everywhere. Attending at the apparition towns in China,” said Xu.

Xu said his assignment isn’t all that altered from startup companies gluttonous investments from adventure capital, area abounding were alone affairs an abstraction or a abstraction in the achievement of award addition who buys into the idea. “If you chase this logic, we are aloof like attractive for a VC. And the VC [the client of the artwork] can advertise their affairs to addition else,” he said.

But admitting bodies may appetite to acquaintance this affectionate of work, owning a appraisal of commercialism is addition thing. Chong Zhou, a 29-year-old administrator and art beneficiary based in Shanghai, said that while he respects others who aggregate conceptual art or achievement works, he has no affairs yet to accommodate such works in his collection, which consists mostly of Asian abreast art by artists from 1975 to the 1980s.

“Preservation and presentation of an artwork are important factors back because a purchase. How to present an artwork advisedly in a amplitude can be challenging,” he said. “And the ‘concepts’ of some of the conceptual works… I feel that they are either aloof jokes or actuality unprofessional.”

While Banksy’s disconnected artwork feels berserk original, it’s not an absolutely new idea. In the aboriginal 1960s, artisan and political activist Gustav Metzger already coined the appellation “Auto-Destructive Art,” area abolition was allotment of the aesthetic action of an aesthetic assignment and was apparent as anti-capitalist and anti-consumerist.

Around the aforementioned time, artworks that abide as a abstraction or a ephemeral, time-based activity were developed, and some of them angle the analysis of time. In 1987, Christie’s awash Ten Thousand Lines About 10 Inches (25 cm) Long, Covering a Wall Evenly (1971) by American artisan Sol LeWitt, the aboriginal conceptual artwork awash at an auction. Dealers such as the Berlin-based Esther Schipper brought Tino Sehgal’s Ann Lee and Marcel (2016), accepted as a “constructed situation,” to Art Basel in Switzerland in 2017. Hong Kong beneficiary Alan Lau donated Sehgal’s Guards Kissing to M , the new beheld ability building appointed to accessible in West Kowloon Cultural District in Hong Kong in 2019.

Servais himself owns a few such works.

He has to re-do the aqueous mix himself every few canicule as the aqueous is degradable. The assignment may not fit with abounding people’s acumen of a high-value allotment of art, but to Servais, it represents the affectionate of abstruse abstraction that he brand to collect.

“I am absorbed in ‘objects of knowledge,’ not ‘objects of pleasure,’” said Servais.

          More on trying to rescue rural places from depopulation - Japanese craft beer      Cache   Translate Page      

I've written a few times about how rural places in the developed world are depopulating, leaving behind the old, ill and poor, as people move to the city. And the local governments of these depopulating places - in Ireland, Switzerland, Devon, Sardinia and Calabria - are trying new ways to get folk back living in remote towns and village. Most of this is about straightforward bribery - we'll pay you to come and live here, we'll give a free house, we'll provide a variety of financial incentives.

This one from Japan is a little different and involves art, beer and broadband:
It’s not just craft beer that has attracted young urbanites to Kamiyama. However, the Kamiyama Beer Project is symbolic for chiho sosei (creating life in the countryside), a set of government measures to attract a younger population to Japan’s rapidly shrinking rural population. Kamiyama’s population has decreased from 21,000 in 1955 to around 6,000 today. But, a slow increase is on its way as the town recently introduced high-speed broadband Internet, satellite office spaces for city-based companies, an artist in residence program, a local farming project, and a craft beer brewery.
I wish them well - technology ought to make living in cities less necessary but it still seems that the lure of the bright lights pulls the young away from fields, farms and tranquillity.

          M.NIL Club Wins Inaugural Swiss J/70 Women’s Cup      Cache   Translate Page      
Swiss J/70 Women's Sailing League winners(Tenero, Switzerland)- The newly-created Swiss Sailing League Women's Cup was hosted by the National Youth Spot Center Tenero and the YC Locarno this past weekend on Lago Maggiore, Switzerland.  The fifteen women’s teams from across Switzerland enjoyed a total of eighteen races over the two days of racing in highly variable wind and weather conditions.  While the first day was partly sunny with good winds, Sunday turned into a fiasco with little wind and lots of rain. In the end, it was Team M. NIL from Zurich, skippered by Nathalie Winiger and crew of Meret Gebistorf, Irina Hotz, and Livia Naef that won with three 1sts, two 2nds and a 3rd.

Swiss J70 women sailors on Lago MaggioreDay One
After 15 races with winds ranging from 4 to 10 kts, the SC Thalwil Team, skippered by Mara Bezel with crew of Giulia Corelli, Fiona Müdespacher and Alexa Bezel were leading the Women's Cup on Lake Maggiore. The racing was tight and exciting. In fact, so close that SC Thalwil was leading on a tiebreaker over Team M. Nil skippered by Nathalie Winiger.  Then, just one point back was the Zurich SC Team with Armei Keller, Franziska Gluer, Olga Henneberg, Zoé Straub, and Karin Nordstrom.

The YC Locarno PRO and RC team were lucky to get in so many races considering the weather forecasts.  The initial expectation was for continuous rain and just 1-5 kts of wind from the south.  However, apart from two rain showers, the sailors stayed dry and the atmosphere was excellent.  From 1000 to 1600 hrs, the regatta PRO managed to run 15 races and 5 flights for each of the 15 women’s teams, so each team could sail 5 races.

The racing was fast and thrilling and the lead changed constantly. In addition to the top three teams, Team CER, Société Nautique de Genève, Regattaclub Oberhofen and Thunersee Yachtclub all celebrated chances for victory in at least one race. The sailors from Club de Voile de Lausanne showed their potential with 2 race wins, but were thrown back to seventh place by a premature start.

Swiss J/70 Women's Sailing League- Lago MaggioreDay Two
The one and only flight determined the outcome for the Women’s Cup for the day.  That meant that all fifteen teams could sail just one race in the final showdown due to the terrible weather.  The day dawned with continuous rain and very light winds from the north.  After an initial postponement, the YC Locarno PRO sent the teams out for a “drift-a-thon” with northerly whispers of breeze of 3-6 kts max.

Team M. NIL and SN Geneve each won races, as did Thunersee YC. However, SC Thalwil had a disastrous 4th place.  As a result of those performances, Nathalie Winiger’s crew on Team M. NIL won the regatta with 10 pts total.  However, the balance of the podium and the top five were determined by tiebreakers!  At 12 pts each, Zurich SC took the silver with a 2-1-5-1-1-2 tally over Team SN Geneve (Laurane METTRAUX, Nathalie BRUGGER, Elodie-Jane METTRAUX, Marie van der KLINK, Coraline JONET) that had a 1-3-3-1-3-1 record. Then, the battle for fourth saw a tie-breaker on 13 pts each, with Team SC Thalwil (Mara BEZEL, Giulia CORBELLI, Alexa BEZEL, Fiona MÜDESPACHER) taking the 4th with a 1-2-4-1-1-4 scoreline over Team Thunersee YC (Sophie MOSEGAARD, Fiona SCHÄRFER, Maya SIEGENTHALER, Linda FAHRNI, Monika MEIER) that had a 2-2-2-2-4-1 tally for 5th place.  Of the fifteen teams, it was readily apparent that the top five crews were all highly competitive and it only took one bad race to drop them out of contention for the gold.  Each of those teams had a least one Olympic sailor, a World circumnavigator, World Match Race sailor, or a Swiss champion on board!  For more Swiss Women’s J/70 Sailing League informationAdd to Flipboard Magazine.

          Can these 35-ton bricks solve renewable energy’s biggest problem?      Cache   Translate Page      

It’s already cheaper to build a new solar or wind farm than a coal plant. But when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing, renewable electricity can still be fairly expensive to store–even though the cost of batteries is dropping. If the world shifted to 100% renewable electricity right now, we might pay more on electric bills.

A new solution that uses basic physics could cut the cost of storage in half, or by as much as 80% over the total life of the system. It makes it possible for renewable power to be cheaper than fossil fuels all day, every day of the year, everywhere. “Our solution, for the first time, will enable the world to achieve this,” says Robert Piconi, CEO and cofounder of Energy Vault, the startup that developed the new system. Tata Power, the giant Indian electric utility, will be the first customer.

Energy Vault, based in California and Switzerland, took inspiration from the way that some dams store energy–hydro plants pump water uphill when energy demand is low, and then produce energy by turning turbines as the water flows back down. The system works, but only in places where dams can physically be built; dams also harm fish, force people to relocate, and can burst and flood villages.

Like dams, the new solution–a massive tower, roughly the height of a 35-story building–relies on gravity. But it doesn’t require water. When a wind or solar farm makes more energy than the grid needs, an automatic crane on the battery uses the extra electricity to lift a giant brick, weighing 35 metric tons, up to the top of the tower. “When that tower’s stacked, that’s all potential energy,” says Piconi. When the grid needs power, the crane automatically lowers a brick, using the kinetic energy to charge a generator.

[Image: courtesy Energy Vault]

All of this happens almost immediately. “We can have a millisecond response time,” he says. The system’s software takes signals from the grid to automatically control the cranes, which carefully raise and lower the giant bricks while taking into account wind and weather. The cranes lower the bricks at exactly the speed needed to provide electricity continuously.

It’s cheaper than building giant lithium-ion batteries, like the huge batteries that Tesla has installed in Australia and elsewhere. In part, that’s because the bricks can be made from cement that would normally be wasted. “These materials we’re using are actually materials that you’d have to landfill,” says Piconi. In California, for example, a construction site with concrete debris has to pay as much as $55 a cubic yard to get rid of it. Unlike lithium batteries, building the system doesn’t require a specialized multimillion-dollar factory; the autonomous crane comes from another manufacturer. Mining lithium also uses huge amounts of water and risks toxic leaks.

In a small town near its headquarters in Switzerland, Energy Vault built a small prototype of the device–72 feet tall, instead of the usual 393. (The system also works at a small scale, but the company is focused on the largest market, utility-scale customers; it’s also less efficient and less disruptive in terms of cost at a smaller scale.) The company is now beginning to build its first units for customers around the world. It’s also in talks with some customers who have been considering constructing huge new dams. “We can do that at a quarter of the cost, without the environmental problems, and have something that would deliver more on the performance side,” says Piconi.

The solution can scale up quickly. “We don’t need to rely on manufacturing or large investments,” he says. It’s a needed step as more states and countries move toward 100% renewable electricity.

          Luxury hotels around the world have private rooms that are so elite they're not even listed online — and some of them are only available via email booking      Cache   Translate Page      

Hotel President Wilson 1

  • Some luxury hotels avoid posting their most expensive and exclusive rooms online.
  • Many of the rooms are only available for well-connected clientele who have heard of the rooms via word of mouth — and have the funds to pay for them.
  • Hotels keep their rooms unlisted for a variety of reasons, including to protect their assets and to create buzz.

How are you supposed to book a room that isn't listed on a hotel's website?

Well, the point, as reported by Bloomberg, is that you probably can't, unless you're connected enough to have heard about it by word of mouth.

That's often the case with ultra-luxurious rooms and suites that high-end hotels purposely choose to not include in their listings. There are no photographs, no descriptions, and no prices available; to anyone who isn't in the know, it's as if it doesn't exist.

Hotels choose to keep these rooms secret for a variety of reasons, ranging from protection of the hotel's assets to protection of the guest's identity and privacy.

Then, of course, there's the thrill of exclusivity. As The New York Times put it, hotels use these unlisted rooms "...as a way to delight valued guests or generate buzz."

Read more: A 5-star boutique in Switzerland with a world-famous infinity pool no longer has to pay for advertising, thanks to Instagram

These rooms go by a variety of terms — owner's suites, partnership suites — but one thing they have in common is a hefty price tag.

Take, for example, Blue Lagoon — one of Iceland's most recognizable tourist attractions. The Retreat is a luxury hotel with 62 suites that can be booked online, some of which offer direct access to the lagoon. But tucked away within The Retreat is The Blue Lagoon Suite. There's no mention of it on their site, but, according to Bloomberg, it goes for $10,050 per night — and requires a two-night minimum stay.

Booking details vary for these unlisted rooms. In some cases, an interested guest has to call ahead and specifically request the suite. Other hotels require that their penthouse suites be booked by email in advance, so that managers have time to vet the guest before making a decision.

Even if booking an unlisted hotel room is a bit (or a lot) out of your budget, there are still ways to customize your 5-star hotel experience with some semi-secret perks. That can include anything from free Champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries to special decorations in your room.

And hotels aren't the only businesses that build a name for some of their products — if not for their entire brands — by choosing not to advertise them. Consider Goyard, a two-century-old Parisian brand.

As Business Insider's Hillary Hoffower previously reported, "Goyard's prime press strategy is silence. It forgoes any advertising, e-commerce, and celebrity endorsements. It rarely grants interviews and very occasionally makes products available to the mass market."

Clearly, in some cases, not talking about your luxury product is the best way to make people want it.

No, it’s not. Engineers normally get 50-60k in the continent. Ireland is the outlier here. The tax haven policy attracted all the US tech companies to set up their European headquarters there, and that helps boosting the pay to US levels.

And the UK’s salary is not that good in the first place. Senior engineers earn 50-70k GBP per annum in London, which isn’t that bad, but it’s also not great considering how high CoL is.

Other than Switzerland, it is also uncommon to find people earning >100k EUR in Europe. Only very senior managers would earn that. It’s no America.

Sorry, I meant per month.

Taiwan is insanely cheaper than western europe or korea. You will make just a tad less than korea but food and housing is way cheaper here. On a GDP PPP per capita basis Taiwan will be richer than germany by the end of 2018. Also income equality is better in Taiwan than most other advanced economies. While, strictly from a financial viewpoint, it might not be that good an idea if you intend to move back but it goes toe to toe with the best (exlcluding super-outliers like Switzerland) if you intend to stay. This means that it may be not as appealing to people from rich countries but a lot of highly skilled professionals around the world come from poorer countries like China, India and Vietnam.

          Miyazaki set to host 2018 World Cup season closer this weekend      Cache   Translate Page      
The 2018 ITU World Cup season reaches its climax this weekend, and the location on Japan’s southernmost tip in the sport-loving city of Miyazaki is the perfect home for another dose of world-class, standard-distance triathlon featuring some of the sport’s top athletes and two packed fields looking to round off the year on a high. MEN’S PREVIEW Mexico’s Rodrigo Gonzalez goes into the race wearing the number one at the end of another packed year that began with a brilliant 5th place at WTS Bermuda and saw victory in the Huatulco World Cup in June. Gonzalez’ compatriot Crisanto Grajales hasn’t had the best season since also scoring a top-10 finish in Bermuda, and he will want to better his recent 6th-placed effort in Salinas last month. Two equally well-travelled athletes in 2018 are sure to be right on their tails, however, as Russia’s Polyanskiy brothers return to the triathlon front line, Dmitry chasing his third World Cup triumph of the season, younger sibling Igor looking to record his first World Cup podium in two years. Another strong Italian World Cup squad takes to the line including Delian Stateff, Alessandro Fabian and Davide Uccellari, Stateff triumphant in Cagliari at the start of the summer finishing just ahead of Uccellari, while Fabian has enjoyed some solid results in both WTS and World Cup racing across 2018. Switzerland’s Max Studer arrives fresh from his first-ever World Cup win in Tongyeong two weeks ago eager to build on that superb achievement, while Spain’s Vicente Hernandez was second here 12 months ago and will no doubt be looking forward to returning to a Miyazaki course he has fond memories of. Australia’s Marcel Walkington finished second in Astana earlier in the year and will be chasing another place upon the podium, while teammate Ryan Bailie has been a regular in the top 10 in this season’s WTS racing and will see Miyazaki as a good chance to secure some end-of-year silverware. Frenchman Raphael Aurelian is back after a quiet few months out and will be looking to lay down the marker from the start of the swim as he has so often in the past, while compatriot Felix Duchampt was another to star in South Korea two weeks ago. After landing three World Cup silvers in a little over a year, Duchampt will be ready to make a play for the top of the podium despite the stiff competition. The USA’s emerging talents Seth Rider and Eli Hemming are likely to be right in contention for a podium spot, while Jumpei Furuya...

          Building New Free Trade Alliances      Cache   Translate Page      

Since the start of the Trump administration, trade has been front and center. The United States has begun raising tariffs and other trade barriers against both allies and economic competitors. In turn, America has been on the receiving end of retaliatory actions from a raft of trade partners.

That pattern of raising barriers came to an abrupt end when the White House announced a new North American trade agreement with Mexico and Canada last month. With this agreement in place, the United States has new opportunities to forge more dynamic free trade alliances. The administration announced in mid-October it would pursue three separate trade agreements with Japan, the European Union and the United Kingdom. Given the economic benefits of lowering trade barriers, making those deals should be a priority for any “America First” trade policy, but the White House shouldn’t stop the forward momentum on important deals with our allies.

Switzerland is already America’s largest European trading partner outside of the EU. In a recent speech to the American Swiss Foundation, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin stressed: “Our nations [the U.S. and Switzerland] share a commitment to democracy, free enterprise and entrepreneurship.” The two countries share high labor and environmental standards — issues that have been a stumbling block in other trade negotiations. Both nations have highly educated workforces, high wages and strong enforcement mechanisms for environmental and workplace safety. And crucially, the path to a trade agreement with Switzerland is much shorter than with the EU, whose 28 member-states each have to ratify any deal.

Direct Swiss investment in the United States tops $334 billion. Affiliates of Swiss companies support almost 500,000 American jobs that pay high average wages of more than $100,000. Technologically driven manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and financial services are leading industries in both countries, making streamlined negotiations toward mutual regulatory recognition entirely possible.

The main pitfall we must avoid is pressure to ratchet up counterproductive regulatory requirements. Fortunately, Switzerland is already unencumbered by the EU’s heavy-handed regulations. Even so, international trade agreements too often include that fundamental, if often overlooked, structural defect. For example, when comparing standards for workplace safety on the floor of a manufacturing plant, we should not simply adopt the more stringent set of rules irrespective of actual safety outcomes. Instead, we should recognize one another’s rules so long as they produce sufficiently similar worker safety outcomes.

Such agreements would have the added benefit of serving as a much-needed check on regulators at home. If every regulation is assessed based on mutually-agreed standards intended to promote both trade and domestic commerce, regulators will have to think twice before rushing to impose costly, unneeded new regulations.

Mutual recognition agreements are ideal for partners like the Swiss and Americans. Historically, the two nations share bedrock principles for a rule of law predating the American republic. James Madison studied the Swiss cantons and referenced them repeatedly in the Federalist Papers. And the famous Swiss neutrality — born of necessity by a small, federated, land-locked nation with decentralized political power — also bolsters its longtime commercial strength. In fact, Switzerland today is the fourth-freest economy, as measured by the Heritage Foundation’s 2018 Index of Economic Freedom. The United States is further down the ranking, number 18.

In April, the U.S. Trade Representative declared: “The United States remains committed to working with likeminded countries to promote fair market competition around the world.” President Trump has an unprecedented opportunity to build his economic legacy by forging international cooperation. Putting a mutual recognition agreement with Switzerland on a fast-track with Japan, the UK and the EU would be a step toward a lasting economic legacy of continued growth and investment.

          Spinal stimulation helps men with paraplegia walk again      Cache   Translate Page      

A new way of electrically stimulating the spinal cord with wireless implants, together with therapy that supports body weight, has helped three men with paraplegia to walk again with the help of walking frames and crutches. They can even take a few steps without any aids at all.
man walking using walking frameA new technique has enabled men with paraplegia to walk again using walking frames.
Many years previously, the three men sustained injuries in the cervical area, or neck region, of their spinal cords that had left them paralyzed in their lower bodies.
The new "therapeutic framework" responsible for their rehabilitation is called Stimulation Movement Overground (STIMO).
It is the result of a collaboration between Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV), both in Switzerland.
Two journals, Nature and Nature Neuroscience, have now published study papers about the new stimulation approach.
What is remarkable about the new method — and distinguishes it from two recently published studies from the United States on a similar topic — is that the men could move their legs when the electrical stimulation to the spinal cord was switched off.
In one of the study papers, the researchers explain the importance of "preserving proprioception" in order to restore movement control in humans with spinal cord injury.
The need to 'preserve proprioception'
Proprioception is the ability to sense bodily position and movement by processing signals that come from the body itself, as opposed to its environment. Scientists often describe it as a "sixth sense."
Some who have written about it have cited the example of a man who, despite being able to make his muscles contract, was effectively immobile after an "infection deprived him of the sense of position, movement, and touch in his body" — or his proprioception.


The researchers in Switzerland maintain that if electrical stimulation of the spinal cord does not have the right combination of precise location targeting and timing of pulses, it can interfere with proprioception.
The STIMO method can overcome this by using "burst stimulation and spatiotemporal stimulation profiles." Using simulations, the researchers showed that it enabled "robust control over motor neuron activity."
"The exact timing and location of the electrical stimulation," explains co-author Jocelyne Bloch, a professor and neurosurgeon at CHUV, who carried out the implant surgery, "are crucial to a patient's ability to produce an intended movement."
Swiss watch precision
Senior study author Prof. Grégoire Courtine, a neuroscientist at EPFL, notes that, following years of researching animal models, they "were able to mimic in real time how the brain naturally activates the spinal cord."
He suggests that the precise combination of location and timing of the impulses is what helped generate new nerve connections.
Prof. Bloch says that it has to be "as precise as a Swiss watch." The implants consist of a series of electrodes that target specific groups of leg muscles.
"Selected configurations of electrodes are activating specific regions of the spinal cord, mimicking the signals that the brain would deliver to produce walking," she adds.
The three men had to learn how to time their intention to walk with the stimulation pulses. After only 1 week of this "calibration" phase, all three were walking with "body-weight support."
"All the patients could walk using body-weight support within 1 week. I knew immediately that we were on the right path."
Prof. Jocelyne Bloch
Within 5 months, their "voluntary muscle control improved tremendously," says Prof. Courtine. "The human nervous system responded even more profoundly to the treatment than we expected."
The men showed no fatigue in their leg muscles and were walking hands-free for more than a kilometer during their rehabilitation sessions.
'Activity-dependent plasticity'
The intense and lengthy sessions helped the men's nervous systems to trigger "activity-dependent plasticity" and reorganize nerve fibers. This is what led to improved movement ability, even in the absence of stimulation.
The team now wants to translate the findings into tailored treatments that can be used in hospitals and clinics.
The scientists are also now developing "next-generation neurotechnology," which they hope to test soon after injury when there is a greater chance of recovery because the affected tissue has not started to die off.
According to estimates from the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, there are about 288,000 people living with spinal cord injury in the U.S. Every year, medical professionals diagnose around 17,700 new cases, of which 78 percent are in males.
Injury incurred during vehicle crashes account for most (38 percent) cases of spinal cord damage in the U.S., followed by falls (32 percent). Other relatively common causes include wounding from gunshots and other violent acts (14 percent), together with injuries that occur during sports or recreation (8 percent).
The following video from EPFL summarizes the research and illustrates the progress that the three men made during their rehabilitation.

          Good as gold: Goossens Paris and Harumi Klossowska de Rola branch out      Cache   Translate Page      
When I meet Patrick Goossens at the Goossens HQ in Pantin, Paris, legacy and continuity are on his mind. He was bequeathed the couture jewellery business by his father Robert in 1978. ‘I’ve worked here for 43 years,’ he says. ‘It’s my duty to carry the DNA of the house to the next generation.’ Robert Goossens, who died in 2016, worked as a studio jeweller on semi-precious designs for Cristóbal Balenciaga, Jean Rochas and Elsa Schiaparelli throughout the 1940s and 1950s, but it was his partnership with Coco Chanel that established his reputation as the foremost couture jeweller in Paris. The pair first began working together in 1954. Chanel had recently revived her fashion house, having returned to Paris from exile in Switzerland, where she had relocated after the war. Robert was working with Maison Degorce, the first-choice costume jeweler of many fashion houses, but had also started...
          Swiss Patent Office clarifies applicability of new Medeva approach to the examination of SPCs      Cache   Translate Page      
Alexa von Uexküll and Oswin RidderbuschThe Swiss Patent Office issued a brief notice regarding a change of practice in the granting of supplementary protection certificates (SPCs) as well as corresponding detailed information on 22 October 2018. Following the Swiss Federal Supreme Court’s judgment 4A_576/2017 of 11 June 2018 relating to the SPC for Truvada, the requirement under Article 140b(1)(a) Swiss Patent Act that the product of an SPC must be “protected” by the basic patent is no longer assessed using an “infringement test”. Instead, as summarized by the Swiss Patent Office, “it is essential that the product is detailed in the patent claims in a form recognizable for a person skilled in the art”. Switzerland thereby intends to follow the approach established by the CJEU in Medeva (C-322/10) and subsequent decisions. The Swiss Federal Supreme Court in 4A_576/2017 already made it clear that this change of practice does not have…

Job Description

Background

The Syria crisis is often described as the worst humanitarian catastrophe since the end of the Cold War. Inside Syria, 7.6 million people are internally displaced and 12.2 million are in need of humanitarian assistance, with 4.8 million in hard-to-reach areas. There are 4 million Syrian refugees in neighboring countries. This is no short-term humanitarian episode. The devastating human consequences to huge numbers of people will endure for decades. The destruction of relationships, communities, livelihoods, homes and infrastructure will take years to repair.

Now in its sixth year, the armed conflict in Syria has resulted in a humanitarian crisis inside Syria and throughout the region. The most recent figures indicate that over 5 million Syrian refugees in neighboring Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reports that 654,903 refugees were registered in Jordan.

Working in coordination with the humanitarian community and the Government of Jordan, the IRC provides assistance for Syrian refugees in both camp and urban settings. The IRC's assistance programs are focusing on providing health, protection and economic empowerment services at the urban areas in Mafraq and Irbid governorates and inside the two camps.

Project Background:

The Regional Development and Protection Programme (RDPP) is a three-year initiative managed by Denmark to support Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq to better understand, plan, mitigate and, where possible, maximise the effects of Syria refugees’ forced displacement into their countries. In addition to this, it works with national and international actors to provide better protection to those displaced by the Syrian conflict and create socio-economic development opportunities for the most vulnerable. The RDPP is a platform of eight donors (EU, Denmark, Ireland, Switzerland, Netherlands, UK, Norway and Czech Republic) joining up humanitarian and development funds to support host countries from a long-term perspective, acknowledging the reality that refugees will be displaced for a long period of time; that the humanitarian approach, while necessary, has to be complemented with development-led strategies; and recognizing the need to support hosting communities and refugees to better face these challenges.

In response to the Syria crisis and resulting displacement, the IRC project “Supporting Economic Opportunities and Livelihoods in Jordan” works in coordination with national and international partners to provide employment and self-employment opportunities refugees and vulnerable Jordanians in Mafraq, Irbid governorates and East Amman. Building on existing capacity and the IRC’s bundled service model, this program provides employment and financial management training, as well as employment support services and micro-enterprise support. The IRC is implementing the action directly, and through support to the local partners Ruwwad for Development through a training of trainers on the IRC’s financial literacy and business management curriculum. The IRC also is signing an agreement with Microfund for Women (MFW) to refer refuges to access to credit and loans through a signed MoU. IRC is partnering with Arab Renaissance for Democracy and Development (ARDD) and Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) for legal services, to provide beneficiaries with legal information about the right for work and business registration.

The Overall Objective of the project is that refugees and vulnerable host communities impacted by the Syrian conflict and resulting displacement crisis have improved livelihood opportunities and economic resilience. Both Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanians face high unemployment with limited opportunities to build safe, sustainable income. These populations will achieve improved livelihood opportunities through the Specific Objective: Vulnerable host community members and refugees have increased access to employment and self-employment and livelihood opportunities. The following results contribute to achieving the specific objective:

Result 1: Vulnerable Syrian refugees and Jordanians are prepared for employment and supported for self- employment.

Result 2: Safe employment and self-employment opportunities are created.

Result 3: Existing and new businesses are supported to grow.

Result 1: Vulnerable Syrian refugees and Jordanians are prepared for employment and supported for self- employment. The IRC’s training courses implemented by IRC in Mafraq, Irbid and Amman governorates and by Ruwwad for Development in East of Amman provides beneficiaries the opportunity to choose one of two training tracks: to start or expand a business (home-based or other), or for developing employability skills. Women and youth who choose self-employment complete “Financial Literacy and Business Skills” trainings. Those who choose the employment track attend the employability training and have the opportunity to be placed in apprenticeships or direct job placement. Through the apprenticeship component, participants are matched with local businesses for on-the-job training, where they will build the skills, experience and relationships that will help them increase their chances of being employed. Beneficiaries interested in entrepreneurship will have access to advanced business management training, where they will acquire skills to develop achievable business plans. Given the vulnerability of the target population and their increased risk of abuse and exploitation in the workplace, all beneficiaries have access to protection services through the IRC’s community centres and awareness sessions, and additional support through referrals for legal services provided by partners NRC and ARDD. In parallel, the IRC continue to advocate and coordinate with local actors and authorities to address legal and regulatory barriers faced by Syrian refugees when trying to access employment and self-employment opportunities. In March 2017, the IRC conducted rapid market assessments and private sector mapping in Amman, Ramtha, Irbid, and Mafraq, in order to identify the local labor needs and skills gaps, and to shape program design in each location where programs are implemented in a highly contextualized way. Overall, under Result 1, beneficiaries will be better prepared for employment and self-employment through improved skills and networking, as well as improved access to legal and protection support services.

Result 2: Safe employment and self-employment opportunities are created, Syrians and vulnerable Jordanians will also have access to safe employment opportunities through. This is achieved by providing beneficiaries and potential employers with the skills, experience, networks and capital necessary to support the creation and further development of new employment and self-employment opportunities. Through partnerships with local private sector companies, the IRC is supporting beneficiaries to develop and access both paid apprenticeships and employment opportunities. For beneficiaries interested in starting their own businesses, they have an opportunity to pursue self-employment through targeted entrepreneurship support, including business mentoring and capital. Overall, under Result 2, throughout the mentoring and capital support process these new businesses will also be supported to create new job opportunities where possible.

Result 3: Existing and new businesses are supported to grow, through the IRC in partnership with Ruwwad for Development and Micro-Fund for Women (MFW) new and existing entrepreneurs are supported to access to finance and business development services needed for their growth, and to ultimately support the growing MSME market in Jordan and contribute to increased employment opportunities (further reinforcing Result 2 as well). Through these partnerships, Ruwwad is trained to provide trainings on business management and development, start-up grants, and links to financial service providers to eligible clients. In addition to capital support and business development services, Ruwwad will also provide one-on-one coaching and mentoring for entrepreneurs. Research with youth entrepreneurs in other contexts has shown that businesses are 75% more likely to succeed if the entrepreneur has guidance from a business mentor. The initial findings and beneficiary feedback from the “Financial Literacy and Business Skills” trainings pilot suggest that entrepreneurs may benefit from additional mentoring to support in tackling both business and personal challenges, and to help their start-up businesses to succeed. Through this project, the IRC started piloting the developed mentorship programming for a duration of 6 months after entrepreneurs receive their business grants in order to improve outcomes for business effectiveness and income generation in the long-term.

The Evaluation framework and Evidence Research Scope:

The IRC see this evaluation as an opportunity to gain a fuller and a deeper understanding about the effect and the broader impacts of the first comprehensive livelihood project implemented by the IRC Jordan, to assess the complementarity in achieving the desired outcomes and to verify the linkages and the used pathways of the theories of change to generate an evidence on livelihood programing.

The aim of the final evaluation for the mentioned project is to:

  1. Assess the achievements of the desired project outcomes and the impact to the lives of the people served by the project with a specific focus on the women and youth entrepreneurs who received business grants from IRC and it partner.

  2. Assess the unintended outcomes occurred as a result of the project interventions.

  3. Identify learning and recommendations to maximize future programming outcomes.

  4. Generate evidence on livelihood approach and interventions that contribute to the related theory of change.

The evaluation will cover the full project implementation period and all project’s interventions that is delivered by IRC directly and by IRC’s partner organization in all of the project’s locations to be able to answer the evaluation’s questions and to achieve its objectives.

          The new Perkins Act is a great opportunity to invest in work-based learning      Cache   Translate Page      

This summer, President Trump signed the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act into law. The legislation, often referred to as Perkins V, is the long-awaited reauthorization of the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education of Act of 2006. It governs how states implement and expand access to career and technical education (CTE) programs and provides over a billion dollars in federal funding.

Perkins V included a variety of changes and additions to previous law. (Check out this brief from the Alliance for Excellent Education for a detailed overview.) These changes include new requirements regarding what must be included in state plans submitted to the feds for approval. Last week, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education released for public comment its first official guidance on state plans. The public comment window closes on December 24, and finalized guidance will likely be released after the start of 2019.

Within his introduction to the guidance, Assistant Secretary Scott Stump shared his hope that states would use implementation of the new law as an opportunity to “rethink” CTE. He offered a variety of suggestions for doing so, including a call for states to examine “how to make work-based learning, including ‘earn and learn’ programs such as apprenticeships, be the rule and not the exception.”

This suggestion should come as no surprise. Secretary DeVos has expressed her admiration of the apprenticeship system in Switzerland, and the president signed an executive order for worker training that includes a focus on expanding apprenticeship programs. The apprenticeship model and CTE in general enjoy broadly bipartisan support. And most importantly, apprenticeships have value: A 2012 Mathematica study found that those who participated in registered apprenticeships had substantially higher earnings than nonparticipants, and that the social benefits were much larger than the costs.

But touting apprenticeships from the bully pulpit is different than creating, funding, and implementing high quality apprenticeship programs at the state and local level. And apprenticeships aren’t the only form of work-based learning out there. Perkins V defines work-based learning as “sustained interactions with industry or community professionals in real workplace settings...or simulated environments at an educational institution that foster in-depth, firsthand engagement with the tasks required in a given career field.” There are all kinds of models that fit this description.

Nevertheless, Assistant Secretary Stump is right that the new Perkins law is a great opportunity for states to invest in work-based learning programs. Here are a few ideas on how interested states could make it work.

Follow the lead of other states

There are plenty of states that have already invested considerable time, talent, and money into work-based learning programs. For instance, PrepareRI is an initiative of the Rhode Island state government that operates in partnership with businesses, schools, universities, and non-profits throughout the state. It is based on a strategic plan with eight priorities aimed at improving career readiness, and work-based learning is one of them. Specifically, PrepareRI calls for all high school students to have access to work-based learning at school by 2020. The state recognizes multiple varieties—including internships, service learning, and industry projects—and has published detailed guidance about each.

Another great example is Delaware, where the Delaware Pathways program provides high school and postsecondary students with work-based learning opportunities for in-demand careers. The program recently received a $3.25 million grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies to, among other things, expand the Office of Work-Based Learning at Delaware Technical Community College.

Wisconsin is also doing good work. The Badger State has established a youth apprenticeship program as part of its statewide school-to-work initiative. It is designed specifically for high school students and integrates school-based and work-based learning within local programs in a variety of career fields.

Focus on partnerships and cross-sector collaboration

Perkins V allows states to use certain funds to establish statewide partnerships between middle and high schools, higher education institutions, employers, and other partners. In states like Rhode Island and Delaware, these partnerships already exist. But in places where they don’t, states should take advantage of the law’s flexibility and funding to establish them.

Take advantage of resources and tools

Whether states are looking to create new programs and frameworks or simply build on what already exists, there’s no need to start from scratch. Jobs for the Future, a national nonprofit that focuses on reforming both education and the workforce, has created a work-based learning framework and has published reports and a host of other resources through its Center for Apprenticeship and Work-Based Learning. New America recently examined the link between college and work-based learning and published eight recommendations for how to more effectively tie together apprenticeships and higher education. And this summer, the American Enterprise Institute released a report that examines how community colleges could play a more active role in growing apprenticeship opportunities.

In 2017, the National Center for Innovation in Career and Technical Education created a Work-Based Learning Tool Kit for state and local program administrators. It’s a treasure trove of data and information, including summaries of how work-based learning fits into federal legislation like Perkins, ESSA, and the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act; recommendations for engaging employers, collecting data, and scaling programs; and links and resources from states that are leading the charge in work-based learning, such as North Carolina and Tennessee.

Incentivize businesses to participate

It’s a no-brainer that to make work-based learning viable, businesses will have to be involved. There are plenty of business that will jump at the chance to partner with schools and programs, but others may need additional enticement. That’s why states should consider creating a tax-credit program that would allow employers to reduce their state tax liabilities based on the number of students who complete work-based learning opportunities with their organization. By doing so, states could recruit new business and corporations to participate and help employers bear the costs of training and supervision, as well as wages in the case of apprenticeships.

***

Obviously, the information outlined here is not exhaustive. There are plenty of other resources out there and plenty of programs and partnerships that are already doing great work. But the most important thing to keep in mind is why work-based learning deserves to be a priority in every state: It provides students with meaningful opportunities to develop academic and career skills, it unites a broad range of partners—businesses, secondary and postsecondary education institutions, and community partners—in achieving a shared goal, and it has the potential to improve the state’s bottom line, as well as those of participants. Sounds like a win-win to me.
