Bill Gates just brought a jar of human poop on stage during a speech. Yes, you read that right.

To be fair, there was a good reason for Gates' use of the unusual prop. He was appearing at the Reinvented Toilet Expo in Beijing, China, talking about the need for safe sanitation throughout the world and the Gates Foundation's role in funding better sanitation options.

          Bill Gates presenta un inodoro futurista que funciona sin agua      Cache   Translate Page      

CHINA, (RT), 6 de Noviembre de 2018 .-El cofundador de Microsoft comparó el porvenir del saneamiento con la revolución de las computadoras en la década de 1970. El multimillonario estadounidense y cofundador de Microsoft, Bill Gates, ha presentado este martes en Pekín (China) un inodoro que prescinde de agua o canalización, informa Reuters. El dispositivo, que realiza la conversión de desechos humanos en fertilizantes usando químicos, es fruto de años de desarrollo y está listo para salir al mercado, según anunció Gates. Hablando en Reinvented Toilet Expo, una exposición dedicada a los retretes, el empresario afirmó que el próximo paso será promocionar el concepto entre fabricantes. Gates comparó la transición de los inodoros tradicionales a los modelos que no usan agua con el desarrollo de tecnologías a mediados de la década de 1970, cuando apareció Microsoft. Según el millonario, el método de conversión química de excrementos se propagará entre los hogares de la misma forma que lo hicieron las computadoras, pasando de ser máquinas gigantes a dispositivos autónomos. La Fundación de Bill y Melinda Gates invirtió 200 millones de dólaresen el curso de siete años en proyectos de conversión de residuos humanos en agua o fertilizantes. Gates subrayó que el mal saneamiento es responsable de la muerte anual de medio millón de niños y costes adicionales de la sanidad por valor de 233.000 millones de dólares, reporta Bloomberg. Para respaldar sus palabras, el multimillonario mostró a los presentes un cubilete que, según él, podría contener 200 billones de células de rotavirus, 20.000 millones de bacterias Shigella y 100.000 huevos de gusanos parásitos.   VP/Internacional/SOH

          Perché Bill Gates si è presentato in Cina con un vasetto pieno di feci      Cache   Translate Page      
Bll Gates cattura l'attenzione della platea del China International Expo con un gesto plateale ma dal significato molto profondo. Salito sul palco, il fondatore di Microsoft ha portato un vasetto pieno di escrementi. "Devo ammetterlo, 10 anni fa non avrei mai immaginato di diventare così esperto sulla pupu. E di sicuro non avrei mai pensato che Melinda mi avesse detto di smetterla di parlare a tavola di bagni e fanghi fecali" ha ironizzato Gates davanti al pubblico esterrefatto (guarda il video).Ma il gesto del miliardario e filantropo americano ha un senso molto più elevato di quanto si possa credere. Perché Bill Gates ha voluto lanciare l'allarme su tutte quelle popolazioni che non hanno accesso ai servizi sanitari. Una vera piaga per molti Paesi del mondo. Come spiegato dal fondatore di Microsoft, un vasetto di escrementi può contenere "fino a 200 biliardi di paralliti, 20 miliardi di batteri Shigella e 100mila uova di verme parassita". Secondo i dati dell'Organizzazione mondiale della Sanità, nel mondo sono circa 2,3 miliardi le persone a rischio di colera, diarrea e dissenteria per non avere accesso ai servizi sanitari.Un problema sentito anche dalla stessa Cina, visto che il presidente Xi Jinping ha messo fra le priorità dell'agenda del suo governo la cosiddetta "toilet revolution". Motivo per cui è stato organizzato l'evento cui ha partecipato Gates insieme alla moglie, Melinda, entrambi a capo della Bill&Melinda Foundation, che si occupa di ricerca e aiuti umanitari.La fondazione ha da tempo lanciato una campagna di raccolta e stanziamento fondi per aiutare le popolazioni che non hanno accesso ai servizi sanitari, spendendo circa 200 milioni di dollari in sette anni soltanto per la ricerca scientifica per la produzone di nuovi wc. "Non si tratta più di reinventare la toilette e gli altri sistemi sanitari. Si tratta di vedere quanto velocemente questa nuova categoria di soluzioni si diffonderà", ha annunciato il filantropo. Come spiega La Stampa, il wc futuristico presentato da Bill Gates funzionerà così: "feci e urine vengono stipate in un contenitore sotto il pavimento. Un pannello fotovoltaico dà energia a un reattore biochimico che purifica i rifiuti attraverso l"uso di elettrodi. Una reazione elettrochimica scompone la materia in componenti separati, come l"idrogeno, il fertilizzante e l"acqua pulita". Da qui, altre parti del mezzo serviranno a riutilizzare i singoli prodotti. E il governo cinese sembra particolarmente interessato.

          Sem água nem esgoto: Bill Gates mostra vaso sanitário futurista      Cache   Translate Page      


O bilionário e filantropo norte-americano Bill Gates apresentou nesta terça-feira (6) em Pequim um vaso sanitário futurista que não precisa de água nem de esgoto e usa produtos químicos para transformar dejetos humanos em fertilizante.


O cofundador da Microsoft, que um dia antes foi um dos convidados de destaque de um grande evento comercial em Xangai, também elogiou os sistemas globalizados de livre comércio que tornaram possível a tecnologia do vaso sanitário.

"Acredito sinceramente que o comércio permite que cada país faça aquilo em que é melhor", disse à Reuters em entrevista concedida nesta terça-feira.

"Então, quando falo de componentes deste vaso sanitário sendo feitos na China, outros na Tailândia, outros nos Estados Unidos, estou dizendo como é bom juntar todo esse QI para ter essa combinação".

O vaso sanitário, que Gates disse estar pronto para ser vendido após anos de desenvolvimento, é resultado de projetos de pesquisa financiados pela Fundação Bill e Melinda Gates, a maior organização filantrópica particular do mundo. Há vários modelos do produto, mas todos funcionam separando dejetos líquidos e sólidos.


"O vaso sanitário atual simplesmente manda os dejetos embora na água, enquanto estes vasos sanitários não têm o esgoto. Eles recebem os dejetos líquidos e sólidos e fazem um trabalho químico neles, o que inclui queimá-los na maioria dos casos", explicou Gates à Reuters.

Ele descreveu a mudança dos vasos sanitários tradicionais para os modelos sem água como semelhante ao desenvolvimento da computação mais ou menos na época em que fundou a Microsoft, em meados dos anos 1970.

"Da mesma maneira que um computador pessoal é de certa forma autossuficiente, e não uma coisa gigantesca, podemos realizar este processamento químico nos próprios lares".

          Bill Gates apresenta o vaso sanitário reinventado, sem água nem rede de esgoto      Cache   Translate Page      

PEQUIM — O co-fundador da Microsoft, Bill Gates, apresentou nesta terça-feira uma peça tecnológica que pode revolucionar o mundo, não nos computadores dos escritórios, mas nos banheiros. O vaso sanitário reinventado não precisa de água nem de rede de esgoto, pois usa produtos químicos para transformar dejetos humanos em fertilizante.

— O vaso sanitário atual simplesmente manda os dejetos embora na água, enquanto estes vasos sanitários não têm o esgoto. Eles recebem os dejetos líquidos e sólidos e fazem um trabalho químico neles, o que inclui queimá-los na maioria dos casos — explicou Gates à Reuters.

LINKS GATES A novidade foi apresentada no evento Reinvented Toilet Expo, na China. Em palestra, Gates elogiou o livre comércio globalizado, que tornou possível o desenvolvimento do vaso sanitário.

— Acredito sinceramente que o comércio permite que cada país faça aquilo em que é melhor — afirmou o bilionário. — Então, quando falo de componentes deste vaso sanitário sendo feitos na China, outros na Tailândia, outros nos Estados Unidos, estou dizendo como é bom juntar todo esse QI para ter essa combinação.

O novo vaso sanitário é resultado de anos de desenvolvimento, em projetos financiados pela Fundação Bill e Melinda Gates. Segundo Gates, a tecnologia já está pronta para entrar no mercado, em vários modelos, e pode ser comparada à computação.

— Da mesma maneira que um computador pessoal é de certa forma autossuficiente, e não uma coisa gigantesca, podemos realizar este processamento químico nos próprios lares — afirmou.

BILL GATES-CHINA_-GST3VN2AI.1.jpg

O que pode parecer trivial tem o potencial para promover uma revolução global no saneamento. No palco, Gates mostrou um pote com excrementos humanos, que continham 200 trilhões de células de rotavírus, 20 bilhões de bactérias e cem mil ovos de parasitas. A esterilização de resíduos humanos podem evitar 500 mil mortes de crianças e economizar US$ 233 bilhões por ano em custos para o tratamento de doenças como diarreia e cólera.

— Nos lugares onde não há instalações sanitárias, tem muito mais disso — afirmou, apontando para o pote. — E é a isso que as crianças são continuamente expostas quando brincam, e é por isso que relacionamos isso não apenas com a qualidade de vida, como também com doenças, morte e desnutrição.

De acordo com bilionário, mais da metade da população mundial não tem acesso a banheiros apropriados, equipamento que deveria ser considerado básico.

— Quando você pensa em coisas que são básicas, junto com a saúde e ter o que comer, ter uma privada faz parte desta lista — afirmou.

A Racial Shakedown in Portland, Oregon

In a 30-second video recorded on Oct. 28, a female pedestrian holding a bicycle helmet is seen making a phone call. She’s complaining about a car blocking a crosswalk on a busy street in Portland, Ore. The phone call ends and the car’s occupants—a young black man and woman—walk up to her and take her to task for reporting them. Some angry words are directed at the bicyclist by the man—“go back to your f—ing neighborhood”—and then the video ends.

If this encounter had unfolded in a normal part of the world, this would be where the story ends: Just another squabble in the battle between drivers and non-drivers over public space. But Portland is not normal. This is a city where antifa mobs are allowed to set up roadblocks and mob elderly drivers, all with the mayor’s apparent acquiescence. 

The latest, above-described victim is a 28-year-old white woman who was captured on video during a phone call with the Portland Bureau of Transportation’s non-emergency parking hotline. The car belonged to Rashsaan Muhammad, who was with his partner, Mattie Khan. They parked improperly on a North Portland street while ordering food from a nearby burger restaurant. While filming, Ms. Khan accused the bicyclist of being “another white person calling the police on a black person.” She wasn’t. Portland Police have no record of that phone call taking place.

It is hard to know how the pedestrian, derogatorily christened “Crosswalk Cathy” on social media, could have known the race of the car’s owners. Portland doesn’t offer its residents race-tagged parking permits (yet), and the incident occurred on a busy business street. But that didn’t stop Portland Mercury news editor Alex Zielinski from writing a provocative (and wrong) story with the headline, “Woman calls cops on Portland man’s parking job. She’s white. He’s black.”

The report, video, and misinformation went viral and spawned a series of other stories targeting the woman. “Portland, Ore., couple Rashsaan Muhammad and Mattie Khan were running to grab a quick bite to eat at Big Burger (sic) when they spotted a woman bearing the skin color of an American terrorist standing across the street looking at their parked car,” read one unsubtle story at The Root. “White lady dubbed ‘Crosswalk Cathy’ called cops because she didn’t like how black couple parked,” headlined another on BET. Newsweek was slightly more charitable, saying she had “allegedly” called the cops. They were all wrong.

Last week’s race controversy ignited by Portland Mercury is not the first time the progressive alternative paper has published race-baiting content. Last year, it ran a libelous (and subsequently retracted) column accusing various restaurants of religious and cultural appropriation—and suggesting they were guilty of “culinary white supremacy.” The predictable result of that column was the siccing of a mob on the female owners of Kook’s Burritos, the business featured most prominently in the piece. They deleted their social media accounts, shut down their food cart, and went into hiding.

“Tribal hatreds are a dangerous thing to stoke,” said Heather Mac Donald, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of The Diversity Delusion. She says most Americans are naïve about the tribal violence that defines much of the historical and modern human experience. “In the worst case, [victim ideologues] are fueling the fires of violent civil strife.”

The genre of “white people doing something to black people” is, by now, a well-established media genre that generates easy clicks. But there is also an unsettling subplot that few seem willing to discuss. The two people of color who star in last week’s viral video both act abominably toward a young woman they’ve just met. In a city where too many bicyclists and pedestrians have been struck and killed in car accidents (2017 was one of the deadliest years with 45 killed), the woman did her role as a good citizen by calling a non-emergency hotline to report the car blocking the crosswalk.

And it was Ms. Khan, not the pedestrian, who instantly racialized the incident, while her male partner called the woman an “idiot” and told her that she doesn’t belong in the neighborhood. Who’s the racist—not to mention segregationist—here?

The couple’s abominable behavior didn’t end after that encounter and the publication of the video on Oct. 29, however. Within hours, Ms. Khan named the bicyclist publicly and posted her photo on social media. Friends and followers of Ms. Khan then continued the doxing, publishing more photos and personal details of the woman. Twitter activist “@Sahluwal,” who only identified himself to me as “Simar,” reposted the video in a tweet watched over 200,000 times. “Twitter, do your thing and identify this woman,” he wrote. Simar told me he was not a witness and did not verify the claim in the video.

Sha Ongelungel, who was recently profiled glowingly as a racial justice activist in The Guardian, published the woman’s employer information on Twitter and encouraged others to call or email them. They obliged and demanded that she be fired. Ms. Ongelungel stopped responding after I inquired if she took any steps to verify the couple’s (false) allegation.

And like the owners of Kook’s Burritos the year before, the victim at the center of the video has deleted her social media presence, taken down her website, and gone into hiding. Her email is no longer listed at her employer’s page. Even some of her family who share the same surname have done the same. This sort of disappearing act now happens regularly in Portland—a new form of excommunication.

While Ms. Khan’s behavior may seem cruel and anti-social, there is a sort of rational logic to it: Progressive Portland is a city where even the most absurd claims of racism are taken seriously and prosecuted hysterically by the media and public.

In May, for instance, a black woman named Lillian Green launched a web campaign against Portland’s Back to Eden Bakery after the vegan shop declined to serve her after closing hours. In the video, she was admirably forthright about her motives for telling the world about this experience: Using the hashtag #LivingWhileBlack, Ms. Green—a doctoral student at Lewis and Clark College—explained that she wants to “blast their ass” on Facebook.

And blasted it was. The owners fired the two women working that evening and offered Ms. Green a job training the remaining employees in “racial inclusivity.” Such incidents send a clear message: Shaming white people, with or without merit, works. People will treat you as a hero. And you will get what you want.

Mattie Khan is now selling clothing merchandise of “Crosswalk Cathy.” She announced the sale on Facebook with a video of Rashsaan Muhammad modeling one of the hoodies at $45 a pop (t-shirts are $25).

In a city whose guilty whites seem ready to roll over on any pretext, no complaint is too absurd to become fodder for race hustling.

False Hopes and Invisible Enemies

Today, many educated people believe that (1) our lives are controlled by invisible, malevolent forces like "structural racism." (2) An evil class of people is born with special powers ("privilege") that allow them to manipulate these forces for their own benefit

written by Jonny Anomaly

People are pattern-seekers. When we observe patterns in the natural world we often seek a deeper explanation for them. An example of a pattern that has captured the attention of academics is the disparity between men and women in fields like mechanical engineering and pediatrics.

Culture is an obvious explanation for some disparities: if a wave of Irish immigrants to Boston joins fire departments, and Italians start restaurants, then we might expect that the next generation of Bostonians will contain a disproportionate number of Irish firefighters and Italian restaurant owners. Similarly, if low-skilled immigrants tend to work in jobs like construction and agriculture, we might expect to find a lot of low-skilled workers who move from Central America to the United States to work on construction sites and strawberry farms.

Another obvious way to explain divergent outcomes between groups is that some groups – ranging from races and sexes, to religions and political partisans – have been discriminated against or persecuted by others. In other words, members of some groups throughout history were not given the opportunity to show their true talents in some fields.

Historically, ethnic discrimination was the norm, not the exception. In fact, ethnic discrimination was almost certainly adaptive for our ancestors who had to decipher, however crudely, who to trust and who to shun. Discrimination often served the function of increasing trust within a group by preventing members of other groups from enjoying access to valuable social goods that took effort to produce and preserve.

Persistent Performance Gaps

When we want to explain performance gaps, the obvious places to start are culture, bias, and discrimination. But in the mid-to-late twentieth century nearly every Western country abolished discriminatory laws, and many also implemented affirmative action programs. Governments, universities, and private firms made active efforts to recruit traditionally persecuted minorities into schools and jobs to which they previously lacked full access.

Under these conditions, some groups improved their outcomes while others did not. Jews and Asians, in particular, have thrived in every Western country in which they are found, and in many cases, they make more money, commit fewer crimes, and attain higher levels of education than the majority group in the societies to which they have migrated.

Moreover, despite the tedious proclamations of politicians that women have a long way to go in Western countries, we are much closer to parity than many believe. The majority of college graduates are now women, and the pay gap between men and women is almost non-existent when we compare workers in the same occupation at the same level. (According to Harvard economist Claudia Golden, most pay gaps are due to choices made by men and women to work in different occupations based on personal interests: women who have children, for example, understandably prefer more flexible jobs, which often pay less.)

As explicit discrimination decreased, social scientists began proposing alternatives to explain remaining gaps. Two, in particular, became popular in the 1990s: stereotype threat and epigenetics. Stereotype threat (supposedly) occurs when people are asked to perform a task and then informed that, on average, members of their group are not especially good at that task. They then perform worse than they otherwise would have. Epigenetics refers to the fact that gene expression is influenced by extra-genomic factors. Some social scientists proposed that if genes can be expressed differently in different environments, perhaps stressful environments can lead some groups to perform more poorly than others by affecting gene expression.

But stereotype threat has turned out to be a spectacular failure in explaining achievement gaps. And epigenetics is unlikely to explain disparities like why Asians outperform Africans on math exams, and why Africans outperform Asians in sports that involve sprinting.

Unfalsifiable Hypotheses

When the predictions generated by these explanations failed to pan out, many began to turn to invisible forces like “structural racism” and “implicit bias” to explain achievement gaps. One problem with these hypotheses (as they are often employed) is that they are impossible to falsify. In fact, that seems to be the point: if we can’t test the hypothesis that unconscious bias and structural racism explain achievement gaps, they become perfect candidates for an all-purpose explanation that can be held with the force of a religious dogma.

When we see an achievement gap, we can invoke bias without even thinking about alternatives, and dismiss as a “racist” or “sexist” anyone who proposes the hypothesis that biology plays a role in explaining some achievement gaps.

Of course, biases exist, and sometimes they are at odds with our explicit value judgments. In these cases, it’s worth spreading social norms that aim to combat unfair biases. But some biases are useful heuristics, and some stereotypes are rational generalizations, like the belief that we have a greater chance of being violently assaulted by a man than a woman, or that the next international chess champion is more likely to be Jewish than Eritrean. In these cases, it is arguably morally wrong to prevent ourselves from believing what the evidence suggests.

When we hear someone attribute achievement gaps to implicit bias or structural racism, an obvious question to ask is: What would count as evidence against your hypothesis?

Vague Language

Structural racism (or sexism) is such an amorphous term that it is hard to know how to analyze it. We might first look to government institutions and private firms and ask whether they have policies of discrimination. In some countries, government agencies and businesses alike have policies that explicitly discriminate against entire classes of people (for example, in Saudi Arabia a man’s testimony in court has twice the evidentiary value of a woman’s). But in many Western countries like the United States and Australia, discrimination on the basis of race, sex, and sexual orientation is explicitly forbidden by law. Affirmative action programs actually do allow employers to discriminate – but they typically discriminate against rather than in favor of men of Asian or European descent.

Of course, we might think that although laws forbid discrimination, implicit bias leads some people to unconsciously discriminate against potential employees and co-workers. Implicit bias is hard to test, but the best evidence we have so far suggests that even when implicit bias exists it does not affect behavior very much, if at all. Despite the weak evidence for implicit bias as an explanation for achievement gaps, many corporations, and educational institutions have diversity training programs aimed at combating its allegedly pernicious effects.

Similar claims can be made about “misogyny,” which is the new term for “sexism” coined by radical feminists who claim that even if most people don’t consciously discriminate against women, an unconscious hatred of women helps explain why men and women exhibit different characteristics, which lead to different outcomes.

Will those who cite implicit bias, structural racism, or internalized misogyny respond to the evidence against their claims? Or will they instead retreat to untestable claims couched in vague language which allows them to save their hypothesis no matter what scientists find?

Conclusion

Those of us who suspect biology plays a role in explaining some group differences do not deny the existence of bias, which is especially powerful in traditional societies that lack norms of toleration and laws that protect minorities. But we are skeptical that racism or sexism or other pernicious forms of bias can explain all of the gaps that we see. More importantly, our hypothesis is falsifiable. One way to falsify it would be to find that genes which influence physical and mental traits – including abilities and interests – are identically distributed across human groups.

If people want to search for the different causes of achievement gaps by proposing testable scientific hypotheses, we welcome them to the debate. But we are frustrated by the seemingly unfalsifiable nature of the hypotheses that are increasingly put forward to defend the view that all groups are the same, and that all indications of difference are evidence of evil.

'I'm not meant to be a bloke': Woman who changed gender to become a man called Lee 15 years ago says sex swap was a huge mistake and wants to switch back

Sex changes are very often regretted

A transgender man who had a sex change 15 years ago has branded it the biggest mistake of his life and wishes he was still a woman.

Lee Harries, 60, of Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, was born Debbie Karemer but underwent gender reassignment surgery at the age of 44.

After years of struggling with his sexual identity, he had his breasts, uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes removed, before doctors made a prosthetic penis for him.

But years later he says: 'I'm not meant to be a bloke' and believes he is not transgender.

Mr Harries, who married his partner Alan before he transitioned, has undergone counselling, where experts have told him he has PTSD as a result of being sexually assaulted by his father.

He told the Mirror: 'I wish I could turn back the clock and just have the foresight of what the nightmare the next 15 years would be.

'I'm a woman I'm not meant to be a bloke. I'm trapped. It's a complete mess - where do you even start? I just regret the decision.

'I'm sure a lot of transgender men feel the same too but I'm the only one honest and brave one to come out and say it.'

Mr Harries says he feels 'mutilated' and believes he had the surgery because he thought if he did not have a vagina anymore he could not be raped.

His trauma has also left him with objectum sexuality, which means he is attracted to inanimate objects.

Mr Harries says he has developed sexual attractions to a fishing rod and a radio, before having a 'relationship' with an electric guitar.

The 60-year-old is currently on the waiting list for an NHS operation to reverse his sex change, but feels 'trapped' in his male body.

The super-rich will regret their vulgar displays

clare foges

UK: Public anger is rising against flashy billionaires such as Philip Green and it’s bound to give a boost to Corbyn’s cause

A full month before pantomime season begins, our favourite villain has returned to the stage in a puff of green smoke: Sir Philip of Monaco. Boo! Hiss! Bubbling under recent coverage has been something approaching delight. Many long for Green’s comeuppance. Dislike of the man stretches back long before these bullying accusations, before BHS hit the rocks and before his shoddy treatment of its pensioners. Two words sum up why Green is long-loathed: greed and vulgarity.

It is one thing to be rich, another to parade it as showily as Green has done (while limiting payments to the taxman). Most famously, there were the parties. His 50th birthday bash was a £5 million event that saw Sir Philip dressed as Emperor Nero. His 55th had performances by George Michael and Jennifer Lopez, pushing the bill up to a rumoured £20 million. The 60th was a more modest affair, only £6 million to cover the numerous bottles of Pol Roger and singalong with Stevie Wonder. Green is a cartoon tycoon, perma-tanned and model-draped, possessing the daddy of all yachts in Lionheart. This £115 million, 295-foot monster troubles the Med’s prettiest harbours each summer blaring the message that its owner is, as the old Harry Enfield character used to declare, “considerably richer than you”.

Green is not the only person to splash the cash, of course, but his profile and pugnacity make him a lightning rod for our dislike of flashy braggarts everywhere. He embodies the culture of vulgarity that has grown ever since loadsamoney City traders flashed their wads of notes in the Eighties. It used to be that modesty was lauded and greed was a cardinal sin. Now the reverse seems true. Displays of wealth that would once have seemed unbelievably crass now barely raise an eyebrow.

The property developer Nick Candy boasts in an interview of the fleet of sports cars he and his brother Christian once owned: Rolls-Royce Phantom, Rolls-Royce convertible, Mercedes SLR McLaren, Ferrari F430 Spider and 575M Maranello, two Range Rovers and a Cherokee Jeep.

Tamara Ecclestone (daughter of Bernie, the Formula One boss) stars in a reality show that lingers on the details of her luxuriant life, from her £70 million house to her many butlers. Plutocrats’ offspring display incredible wealth on Instagram: being waited on in Monte Carlo and buried under Tiffany purchases in New York. A craze sweeping Russia and China shows how such tackiness has gone global. The “flaunt your wealth” challenge has Instagrammers posing corpse-like on the ground next to their luxury car or aircraft as though just pitched out of it, surrounded by Gucci bags, Prada sunglasses, piles of banknotes and jewels.

Most notoriously there is the endless race among the super-rich to build bigger and swankier boats. Last week this paper reported on a surge in demand for mega-yachts, with a predicted 40 per cent increase in the number of 100 metre-plus vessels built in the next few years. One industry figure puts this down to one-upmanship: owners needing to trump each other with multiple decks, helicopter pads, submersible vehicles, piano bars and cinemas.

Criticism of such excess is easily shut down as “the politics of envy”. Defenders of the super-rich ask, “Why shouldn’t they enjoy the fruits of their labours? Lighten up! Let the high-rollers roll!” Call it the politics of envy all you like, but the truth is that as life continues to grind hard for many in our country, as wages continue to stagnate, conspicuous consumption seems not only tacky and crass but taunting and cruel.

Green once complained that he was the victim of “envy and jealousy” but such lifestyles are designed to draw attention and inevitably spark envy. For many among the super-rich, their bought delights are not to be privately enjoyed but publicly shared. Part of the pleasure is in people witnessing your extravagance. In an age when social media and celebrity coverage trumpet every movement of the rich and famous, this means decadent, champagne-spraying spending being rubbed in the face of millions who have bugger all. These displays don’t inspire the hospital porter on the night shift or the carer on minimum wage to reach for the stars — they just make them feel inadequate and small, locked out of a Gatsby-like world.

This is why those who wear their wealth gaudily on their sleeve should be careful. The resentment caused is grist to the socialists’ mill. Anger about inequality is growing, not only among the have-nots but among the have-somethings. The more the super-rich seem to float off into a gilded bubble beyond the rest of us, the more voters will wish for them to be brought to heel. If a Corbyn government should come to “eat the rich”, as the hard-left placards say, if Chancellor McDonnell plays Robin Hood with some painfully (and destructively) redistributive policies, the flashy rich may only have themselves to blame.

To be clear: I don’t believe being on the Rich List makes you a bad person — far from it. I have great admiration for those with the entrepreneurial chutzpah to rise high and prosper. But there are ways to handle extreme wealth with class and even grace. In an essay entitled The Gospel of Wealth, the great Gilded Age philanthropist Andrew Carnegie said the duties of the very wealthy were to shun “display or extravagance” and consider themselves “trustees for the poor”.

Many around the world have taken these words as a manifesto. There are the highly generous, like Bill Gates with his Giving Pledge, and there are those who shun extravagance too. Ingvar Kamprad, the late founder of Ikea, flew only in economy class. The Mexican magnate Carlos Slim drives himself to work. Warren Buffett never spends more than $3.17 on breakfast. In Britain there are many rich people who go about their business modestly and take their responsibilities as trustees for the poor seriously. They start schools in deprived areas, fund mentoring and scholarships, pay enormous amounts in tax and don’t deserve to be tarnished by the brush of Green and his flashy ilk.

The awful “flaunt your wealth” challenge brought to my mind a woman who died in AD 79 . On the outskirts of Pompeii archaeologists found her wearing heavy gold armbands, rings and chains, carrying a bag containing more bracelets, rings, necklaces and a thick braid of gold. Weighed down by her gaudy riches as she ran from the erupting Vesuvius, she is a symbol of the adage that you can’t take it with you.

The super-rich should consider not only how they want to be perceived today but remembered tomorrow. Do they wish to be fossilised surrounded by Ferraris, gold bathtubs and Cartier bracelets or remembered, as the Carnegies and the Rockefellers are, for something better? The choice is theirs.

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

          China promete abrir más su mercado ante las crecientes críticas      Cache   Translate Page      



Trump y Xi se verán cara a cara a finales de mes al margen de una cumbre internacional en Argentina, una cita que genera esperanzas de una relajación de las tensiones comerciales.


SHANGHAI. El presidente Xi Jinping volvió a prometer este lunes una mayor apertura del mercado chino a las importaciones, un reproche velado a los Estados Unidos de Donald Trump y a quienes acusan a Pekín de no cumplir sus promesas de reformas.
Ante un auditorio de dirigentes mundiales reunidos en la primera Exposición Internacional de Importaciones, celebrada en Shanghái, el presidente chino aseguró que su país “aumentará sus esfuerzos” para abrir su mercado e incrementar sus compras al extranjero, pero no anunció grandes medidas concretas.
“Fomentaremos un entorno comercial de clase mundial”, prometió el dirigente de la segunda economía del mundo, que celebra este año el 40º aniversario del lanzamiento de la era de reformas y de apertura.
“Las puertas de China no volverán a cerrarse nunca, se abrirán más”, declaró el mandatario chino ante personalidades como el primer ministro ruso, Dimitri Medvedev; la directora gerente del Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI), Christine Lagarde; o el fundador de Microsoft, Bill Gates.
“Hay margen para reformar aún más el mercado interior en China, lo que contribuiría a reforzar el sistema comercial mundial, y para adoptar reformas que ayudarían a liberar íntegramente el potencial de tantas empresas del sector privado”, indicó por su lado Lagarde en su discurso.
Esta Exposición Internacional de Importaciones, celebrada durante esta semana en la capital económica china, es vista como una respuesta a la guerra comercial lanzada en julio por el presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, descontento con el colosal déficit acumulado por su país.
Sin nombrar directamente a Estados Unidos, el presidente chino denunció el “proteccionismo” y el “aislacionismo” y consideró que todos los países deberían poner en orden sus asuntos antes de criticar los de los demás.
“No deberían señalar a los demás para que se olviden de sus propios problemas”, insistió Xi.
Tanto China como Estados Unidos han aplicado aranceles punitivos a sus respectivas importaciones, pero el excedente chino siguió batiendo récords en los últimos meses.
“Reparto equitativo”
Alrededor de la mitad de las importaciones chinas a Estados Unidos están sometidas ya a sanciones y Donald Trump amenazó con someter a la totalidad de los productos chinos. Más aún, la administración Trump no está representada en este foro de Shanghái.
Trump y Xi se verán cara a cara a finales de mes al margen de una cumbre internacional en Argentina, una cita que genera esperanzas de una relajación de las tensiones comerciales.
No obstante, el rotundo éxito del comercio chino genera críticas también fuera de Estados Unidos.
El presidente de Kenia, Uhuru Kenyatta, quien tomó la palabra después de Xi, recordó que el comercio entre su país y China se multiplicó prácticamente por ocho en 10 años, una muestra de las colosales inversiones de Pekín en África.

“Este comercio está, no obstante, muy desequilibrado a favor de China. Es importante que corrijamos este desequilibrio para lograr un reparto equitativo de los frutos del comercio”, consideró.
Más de 3.000 empresas extranjeras de 130 países están presentes en el salón de Shanghái, muchas de ellas firmas estadounidenses como General Motors, Ford, Walmart y Tesla.
Varios actores reclamaron a China en vísperas de este foro que dé pasos para abrir más su mercado. Los embajadores de Francia y Alemania pidieron a Pekín en una tribuna publicada en la prensa china que “haga más” para garantizar una “competencia equitativa” a las compañías extranjeras.
Empresas y gobiernos extranjeros se quejan regularmente de las barreras que encuentran en china, entre las opacas regulaciones, la burocracia, las discriminaciones frente a los grupos estatales chinos y la relativa protección de la propiedad intelectual.
China se sitúa en el puesto número 59 de los 62 países analizados por la Organización para la Cooperación y el Desarrollo Económicos (OCDE) en materia de apertura a inversiones extranjeras.

          Bill Gates quer reinventar os banheiros com novas tecnologias de saneamento      Cache   Translate Page      

Em evento realizado na última terça-feira (5) em Pequim, Bill Gates subiu ao palco segurando um pote com fezes humanas. Mas tal apresentação escatológica tem um motivo nobre: o bilionário co-fundador da Microsoft quer revolucionar os sanitários com novas tecnologias de saneamento.

Sua fundação filantrópica — a Bill & Melinda Gates — já gastou mais de US$ 200 milhões em pesquisas nessa área nos últimos sete anos e, no evento, vinte produtos de saneamento com tecnologia de ponta foram exibidos, destinados a destruir bactérias e prevenir doenças. "Eu tenho que dizer que, uma década atrás, eu nunca imaginei que eu saberia tanto sobre fezes", brincou Gates enquanto falava sobre o assunto que inevitavelmente rende risos como se todos nunca tivéssemos saído da quinta série.

A ideia de Gates é revolucionar a tecnologia de saneamento, separando resíduos líquidos e sólidos fora da rede de esgoto e removendo subprodutos prejudiciais à saúde e ao meio-ambiente ali mesmo. O bilionário descreveu as invenções apresentadas como sendo "os avanços mais significativos em saneamento em quase duzentos anos".

Ao exibir o frasco de fezes, Gates disse que ali poderia haver "até 200 trilhões de rotavírus, 20 bilhões de bactérias Shigella e 100 mil ovos de vermes parasitas". Segundo a Organização Mundial da Saúde, 2,3 bilhões de pessoas em todo o mundo ainda não têm acesso a saneamento básico, e isso acaba causando doenças como cólera, diarreia e tantas outras que matam centenas de milhares de pessoas anualmente.

"Nos países ricos, temos esgotos que levam água limpa para dentro, limpam um pouco da água suja e, em quase todos os casos, há uma estação de tratamento. Como temos essas cidades mais novas com muitas pessoas menos abastadas, esses esgotos não foram construídos e, de fato, talvez nunca sejam", disse Gates, que continuou o raciocínio com uma questão: "seria possível processar o lixo humano sem esse sistema de esgoto?".

Ele acredita que a resposta esteja justamente nas pesquisas de sua Fundação, e espera que seu banheiro reinventado seja implantado em prédios em que há uma grande concentração de pessoas, como escolas e edifícios de apartamentos, inicialmente, e, quando os custos dessa implantação forem reduzidos, a ideia é que a tecnologia se torne acessível também a residências. Gates imagina que um banheiro revolucionário do tipo possa custar "talvez US$ 500".

          Bill Gates Brings Human Poop At Speech In China Reinvented Toilet Expo      Cache   Translate Page      

Bill Gates speaking speaks at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in China.

Microsoft founder Bill Gates brought with him a jar of human waste when he kicked off the Reinvented Toilet expo in China on Tuesday.

According to CBS News, the philanthropist placed the jar on a pedestal next to him as he made a plea for the safe disposal of human waste during his keynote speech at the event in Beijing.

“You might guess what’s in this beaker — and you’d be right. Human feces,” Gates said.

“This small amount of feces could contain as many as 200 trillion rotavirus cells, 20 billion Shigella bacteria, and 100,000 parasitic worm eggs.”

Gates went on to say that the pathogens in the fecal matter is known to cause diseases that kill nearly 500,000 children below 5-years-old every year.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which was founded by Gates and his wife, has been working to address the world’s sanitation problems. Since 2011, the foundation has spent more than $200 million to improve research and development of safe sanitation technologies.

Bill Gates quiere reinventar el WC con inodoros

La desigualdad es quizás una de las patologías sociales más graves de la actualidad, sumada a la destrucción progresiva del planeta que está ocasionando nuestro paso por él. Pero por suerte la filantropía invade a personajes que en su momento amasaron una buena fortuna, con iniciativas tan llamativas y aparentemente prácticas como la idea de Bill Gates para reinventar los inodoros.

Algo que para muchos es un elemento más de la casa, algo básico que ya tenemos o que nos encontramos en cualquier cafetería o espacio público, pero que supone todo un lujo en ciertas ubicaciones, o bien algo imposible de integrar por lo que requiere su instalación. Al menos tal y como lo concebimos actualmente, lo cual pretende empezar a cambiar Gates con esta última iniciativa.

De revolucionar la informática a reinventar el WC

El eslogan de la Fundación Bill & Melinda reza que todas las vidas tienen el mismo valor y es lo que Gates ha perseguido con las iniciativas que puntualmente ha dado a conocer y con sus donaciones desde hace más de una década. Iniciativas de cara a cuidar el planeta tirando de satélites o la que hoy nos ocupa, pasando por carraspear a la esfera política en materia energética.

¿Qué es esto de reinventar el inodoro? En realidad es repensar el sistema que sustenta éste, el cual requiere una instalación y una energía que no puede proporcionarse en todos los lugares por falta de medios.

Inodoros que no requieren agua, alcantarillado o electricidad y que no expulsan los residuos a una fosa y un sistema de tuberías, sino que éstos se recogen para separarse y procesarse para que tengan un valor comercial (como agua limpia o fertilizante). De este modo, podrían instalarse en prácticamente cualquier lugar y sobre todo requerirían un menor coste de instalación y mantenimiento, lo que los convierte en candidatos potenciales a ser el sistema de elección en regiones con menos recursos.

Reinvent

Que la igualdad empiece también por la higiene

El proyecto se encuentra aún en fase de pruebas y la fundación de Gates lleva invertidos más de 200 millones de dólares durante los siete años que lleva estudiando este inodoro alternativo, apuntan en BBC. La idea es que las ciudades pobres puedan ahorrarse el costoso sistema de tuberías que describe Gates y que estos inodoros tengan un coste de mantnimeinto diario menor de 5 céntimos al día, explicó el fundador de Microsoft a CNN.

No es casualidad que Gates eligiese China para el anuncio del proyecto. El país ya tuvo su "revolución del WC" iniciada por el presidente Xi Jinping, con la que se mejoró la higiene pero habiendo aún muchas regiones rurales para las que el sistema habitual de alcantarillados y gestión de residuos no son accesibles.

Aún no han dado detalles sobre cómo funcionan estos inodoros, pero según describen estarían cerca de lograr un sistema práctico, más limpio e incluso provechoso para estas áreas con menos recursos. Seguiremos atentos y esperando que tanto ésta como otras iniciativas contribuyan a que la higiene sea algo más habitual para quienes no tienen la suerte de nacer ya rodeados de ella.

           Profumo di anni '80 in Windows 10: i nomi che non si possono usare per file e cartelle       Cache   Translate Page      
Esattamente 38 anni fa IBM era alla ricerca di un sistema operativo da utilizzare sui suoi nuovi personal computer e dopo una serie di trattative fallite con la Digital Research di Gary Kildall, autore di CP/M (usato sui microcomputer di quei tempi), l'azienda decise di rivolgersi alla Micro-Soft (col trattino) di Paul Allen e Bill Gates (avevamo riassunto la vicenda proprio qualche settimana fa in occasione dell'ultimo saluto ad Allen: Addio a Paul Allen, co-fondatore di Microsoft con Bill Gates).

Micro-Soft, che si era fino ad allora concentrata sul BASIC, contattò il programmatore statunitense Tim Paterson e riuscì a prendersi la licenza di QDOS (Quick & Dirty Operating System), clone a 16 bit di CP/M, dalla Seattle Computer Products per cui lo sviluppatore lavorava.

Dopo il parere favorevole di IBM, nel mese di agosto 1981 nacque la prima versione di MS-DOS che fu parzialmente riscritta dagli sviluppatori di Big Blue in seguito all'individuazione di circa 300 bug.

Chi potrebbe pensare che a distanza di tanti anni Windows 10 contiene ancora diverse tracce della prima versione di MS-DOS?

A verificarlo è stato un appassionato di elettronica e di apparecchiature informatiche vintage che ha in questo giorni pubblicato un curioso post su Twitter.

          Cara Unik Bill Gates Bicara Masalah Sanitasi      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Pendiri Microsoft, Bill Gates menggunakan cara unik saat menyampaikan pidatonya tentang sanitasi. Dia membawa sebuah toples berisi tinja manusia saat naik ke panggung.

Mengutip New York Post pada Rabu (7/11/2018), hal itu dilakukan Bill Gates pada Selasa waktu setempat di Reinvented Toilet Expo di Beijing, Tiongkok. Aksi tersebut dia lakukan untuk memastikan publik menyoroti masalah sanitasi.

Selama tujuh tahun terakhir, yayasan yang didirikan Bill Gates dan sang istri, Melinda, menghabiskan lebih dari 200 juta dolar untuk penelitian tentang teknologi toilet terbaru.

"Saya harus mengatakan satu dekade yang lalu saya tidak pernah membayangkan bahwa saya tahu begitu banyak tentang kotoran," canda Gates.

"Dan saya benar-benar tidak pernah berpikir Melinda harus memberitahu saya untuk berhenti bicara tentang toilet dan kotoran di meja makan," tambahnya.

Miliarder 63 tahun itu berada di Tiongkok selama tiga hari. Dalam kunjungannya, Gates mendukung pimpinan Tiongkok Xi Jinping dan program "revolusi toilet" yang menjadi prioritas di negeri tirai bambu itu.

Menurut Organisasi Kesehatan Dunia, WHO, masalah sanitasi masih dialami 2,3 miliar penduduk dunia. Hal semacam ini mengarah pada penyebaran penyakit mematikan.

"Ini bukan masalah lagi jika kita dapat menemukan kembali toilet dan sistem sanitasi lainnya," kata Gates.

Kepada BBC, Gates menjelaskan tentang ketidakadilan sanitas saat ini semakin berkembang.

"Di negara-negara kaya, kami memiliki saluran yang mengambil air bersih dan membuang sebagian air kotor keluar. Dalam semua kasus ada rencana perawatan," ujarnya.

"Karena semua kota baru ini memiliki banyak orang yang tidak mampu di dalamnya, saluran pembuangan semacam itu belum dibangun dan pada kenyataannya, itu mungkin tidak akan pernah ada. Jadi pertanyaannya adalah, bisakah Anda melakukannya? Bisakah Anda mengolah kotoran manusia tanpa sistem saluran pembuangan itu?"

          Phát minh lại bồn cầu, tỷ phú Bill Gates sẽ tiết kiệm cho thế giới 233 tỷ USD      Cache   Translate Page      
Theo tỷ phú Bill Gates, việc phát minh lại bồn cầu và nhà vệ sinh cũng là một cơ hội kinh doanh béo bở.

Tỷ phú Bill Gates có một niềm tin mãnh liệt vào tầm quan trọng của nhà vệ sinh. Ông cược lớn rằng việc phát minh lại những chiếc bồn cầu có thể cứu sống hơn 500.000 người và tiết kiệm hơn 200 tỷ USD.

Quỹ từ thiện Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation đã đầu tư hơn 200 triệu USD trong suốt 7 năm qua, để nghiên cứu về vấn đề vệ sinh và môi trường. Đã có rất nhiều ý tưởng và thiết kế thú vị giúp giải quyết vấn đề chất thải, chuyển hóa các chất thải con người thành nước sạch và phân bón.


Tỷ phú Bill Gates.

“Những công nghệ mà bạn thấy ở đây chính là những tiến bộ quan trọng nhất của vấn đề vệ sinh và môi trường trong 200 năm qua”, tỷ phú Bill Gates chia sẻ tại Hội chợ triển lãm tái phát minh nhà vệ sinh, diễn ra ở thành phố Bắc Kinh.

Ông cho biết thêm rằng, trong chất thải con người có khoảng 200 nghìn tỷ tế bào virus, 20 tỷ vi khuẩn, 100.000 trứng giun ký sinh. Và một phương pháp mới giúp loại bỏ toàn bộ những tác nhân gây hại này, sẽ giúp cứu sống hơn 500.000 người và tiết kiệm cho thế giới 233 tỷ USD.

Một phương pháp mà Viện Công nghệ California đưa ra, theo Bill Gates là “siêu thú vị”, đó là sử dụng lò phản ứng điện hóa để phân hủy nước và chất thải con người thành phân bón và hydro. Hydro có thể được lưu trữ trong các tế bào năng lượng hydro để dùng làm năng lượng.


Có thể sử dụng lò phản ứng điện hóa để phân hủy nước và chất thải con người thành phân bón và hydro.

Xử lý chất thải của con người thực sự là một cơ hội kinh doanh béo bở. Cố vấn cấp cao của Unicef, ông Guy Hutton cho biết: “Việc xử lý chất thải của con người đúng cách là một đầu tư hấp dẫn. Với nhu cầu chưa được đáp ứng của 2,3 tỷ người, đây thực sự là một thị trường tiềm năng và đem lại nhiều lợi ích cho cả xã hội”.

Các công ty và startup công nghệ hoàn toàn có thể coi đây như một cơ hội kinh doanh, nếu như họ đưa ra được giải pháp hợp lý, Bill Gates khẳng định. Cũng tại Hội chợ triển lãm tái phát minh nhà vệ sinh, có rất nhiều công ty công nghệ góp mặt như Sedron Technologies của Mỹ, Eram Scientific Solutions của Ấn Độ, CRRC Corp và EcoSan của Trung Quốc.

Tỷ phú Bill Gates chia sẻ một cách hài hước rằng: “Tôi chưa bao giờ nghĩ rằng mình sẽ là một chuyên gia về vấn đề này. Tôi và Melinda không ngừng nói về nhà vệ sinh, bồn cầu và phân trên bàn ăn”.

Der Unterschied ist: damals gab eszig Lager, Baracken ..., Drill und Zucht aber wer sich nicht fügte wurde schnell mal gefoltert oder auch kurzum erschossen. Das was jetzt aber herauf zieht ist das abschlachten von Völkern. Ohne Gnade! Die Elite ist so dreist und kündigte es bereits früh an. Guidestone im US Bundesstaat Georgia!!! You tube/google Eine Elite die alles gut vorbereiten konnte und die Masse belügt, die Särge wo man gleich 3-5 Leute hin werfen wird ..., diese Fema C. werden nicht umsonst gebaut worden sein, soviel ist sicher! Diese Drecksau Bill Gates und der ganze Dreck von Rothschild bis Morgan, Warburg, Rockefellers etc., haben Angst. Angst das die Masse sich erhebt und sie alle an den Eiern aufhängen wird, nur dafür wurden diese Lager errichtet. Und die, die diese Schweine beschützen die tun das weil sie wissen, sie dürfen weiter leben ..., die stumpfen ab wie Maschinen werden die agieren. Sie machen das bereitwillig mit, im Gegenzug gewährt man ihnen Leben, Logie und Kost wenn auch nur den Rest der übrig ist. So wie Hunde die den Knochen noch bekommen. Das wird alles so kommen, es wurde vorbereitet und wird sich Straßenweise vollziehen, Flucht unmöglich, da Ausgangssperren erfolgen. Wer erwischt wird, bekommt gleich ne Kugel. Mit LKWs werden Massen an die Bahnhöfe gebracht, da stehen bereits dann die Waggons zum Abtransport! Silberfarbene ringsum verschlossene Waggons, ein entkommen auch da unmöglich! Nichts wurde dem Zufall überlassen, darum auch die inszenierten Anschläge um alle Waffen abzugeben die so manch einer noch vom Großvater hatte oder sonst wo her. Wir haben 2018 und mit dieser Umvolkungsaktion die bis zum zerbersten weiter betrieben wird, ist die erste Phase bereits in vollem Gange! Afrika wird so gut wie in alle Winde verstreut um an die Rohstoffe zu kommen. Dumme Menschen aber zum arbeiten noch gut genug, Sklave nicht mehr und nicht weniger, hauptsache dumm um sich nicht dagegen aufzustellen. 2020 wird es so richtig los gehen, denn diese Massen kann man nicht mehr auf längere Sicht gesehen ernähren. Wasserknappheit usw. drohen - ergo ein Abschlachten ist die Folge. Damit es organisiert von statten gehen kann, wurde alles ganz konkret dazu vorbereitet. Denn man will ja den 500 Millionen die da überleben möchten nicht zumuten die Leichenberge überall zu beseitigen! Sie werden das durchziehen, es besteht kein Zweifel darüber! Überall entstanden in vielen Städten unterirdische Bunker, Städte kann man sagen - doch oben wird gnadenlos gemordet. Wenn einer noch glaubt das alles gut wird der sollte versuchen an ein Ticket zu kommem die es ermöglichen im Bunker zu überleben. Aber es ist bereits entschieden wer da hinein kann und wer nicht! Es wird oben Überlebende geben die sich bevor sie gefangen genommen werden konnten, auf den Weg gemacht haben. In Berge und dichte Wälder werden diese versuchen zu überleben. Aber die, die dann wieder ans Tageslicht kommen haben den Chip und der, der den nicht hat kann nirgends ungesehen oder unbemerkt wieder in die Städte zurück. So wollen sie die Ressourcen einteilen und die Population eindämmen, zumindest erst einmal bis sie selbst abtreten durch den natürlichen Tod. Das ist der Plan und er hat bereits begonnen! Um es so human wie nur möglich am Beginn zu gestalten wird mit allem möglichen versucht, die Reduktion der Menschheit einzuläuten. Vergiftungen von oben, Gifte im Boden, Krankheiten, Säuchen, u. v. m.! Ich sehe es es, alles! Woher ich das weiß, weil ich es bereits erlebt habe, nur etwas anders. Flieht, flieht ihr Narren!

          Growing as a Product Owner: Five Product Owner Maturity-Levels      Cache   Translate Page      

The Product Owner role is implemented in organizations in various different ways. The responsibilities and authorities of Product Owners vary across organizations, departments, teams and Product Owners. This can be explained to some extend, because it is a role that people need to grow into. The role requires some specific competences and a specific mindset. In addition, for many organizations it is a new and unknown role in which people (typically management) are trying to find the right balance of responsibilities and mandate. Preferably, a Product Owner has a lot of mandate and he or she is the final decision maker for the product. In many organizations this is not (yet) the case however.

In order to create clarity about the level of Product Ownership in your organization, we distinguish five types of Product Owners:

  • The Scribe
  • The Proxy
  • The Business Representative
  • The Sponsor
  • The Entrepreneur

Product Owner Maturity LevelsThe figure shows these different types of Product Owners visually. In this figure you'll see  the expected benefits that can be achieved, based on the authorities (or maturity) of the Product Owner. A 'Scribe' therefore has few responsibilities and authorities, an 'Entrepreneur' has many responsibilities and authorities.

The image shows the growth path of the Product Owner as we often see it at organizations. Product Owners grow in their authorities and herewith, the added value of their role increases for the product, organization and customers. Having more mature Product Owners will enable organizations to experience more benefits of applying Scrum and value delivery will typically increase for the better. In the following paragraphs the different types of Product Owners are explained in more detail, and we will discuss how you as a Product Owner can take a step in the authorities that you have.

The Scribe
We often find the Scribe Product Owner role in organizations that are just starting out with Scrum, and/or in organizations that have not completely embraced the Agile mindset (and therefore do not apply Scrum properly). These organizations see the Product Owner primarily as someone who administers the Product Backlog, collects the wishes from the stakeholders and translates them into User Stories for the Development Team. This type of Product Owner often has none to very limited authorities. This Product Owner mainly ensures that the wishes of the stakeholders are written out in understandable language for the Development Team. In organizations where this type of Product Owner is very common, Business Analists or Requirements Engineers are often appointed as Product Owner. In such situations, the mandate often lies with someone else, such as a steering committee or a Project Management Office (PMO).

The Proxy
Just like the Scribe Product Owner, we often see the Proxy Product Owner (in short: Proxy) in organizations that are in a starting phase with an Agile way-of-working and in adopting the Scrum Framework. The Proxy has some more authorities than the Scribe has. The Proxy, for example, also often gets the authority to make (limited) choices in the ordering of the Product Backlog. However, the vision, the business goals, the desired outcomes/results and the scope is still being determined by other people, such as a steering committee, project sponsor or business owner. In many organizations we encounter Proxy Product Owners who used to be in the position of project manager or teamlead. These roles or positions typically already have the responsibility of bringing a project to a successful end. Therefore, it seems logical to many organizations to change these peoples' roles to 'Product Owner'. However, these Proxy Product Owners are not the final decision-makers. They typically have to ask for approval when changes happen. They have to ask for approval to change priorities. And they have to ask for approval when they want to change the planning, roadmap and Product Backlog.

The Business Representative
The next type of Product Owner is the Business Representative. The Business Representative is typically a representative from the business side of the organization, who knows the business context, market, customers and users well. Therefore, this person typically knows from experience what customers and users would need and/or what they would like to have. This person is typically one of the 'seniors' or 'experts' in the organization, who has connections to customers and/or users. This type of Product Owner could also be people like process owners or system owners. Although the term Business Representative suggests that this type of Product Owner comes from 'the business', this is not necessarily the case. It could also be that someone from the IT department is in the Product Owner role, with the maturity level 'Business Representative'. Examples of IT-people in this role could be information managers, architects or security experts. These people may have gained a lot of knowledge about the (technical) product, and therefore be suitable Product Owners. To strengthen this concept of having IT Product Owners... remember that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were excellent Product Owners too, and these guys really were 'IT-people'.

So, the Business Representative has more authorities than the Proxy. The Business Representative is typically responsible for a part of the product, a system or a (set of) process(ess). Within this system or process, this Product Owner may determine for him- or herself which work will be carried out by the Development Team. The Business Representative is therefore responsible for the Product Backlog and he or she has the authority to manage the Product Backlog by themselves. This is however, only as long as the desired changes can be done within the budget that was allocated by other people, such as management or a steering committee. The Business Representative does not have an own budget to spend as desired. He or she needs to get approval for budget changes and therefore often still has to deal with a steering committee or manager. The Business Representative also typically has a list of work to be done, projects to perform or goals to achieve, which were defined by someone else.

The Sponsor
In contrast to the Business Representative, the Sponsor has his or her own budget. This is the biggest difference between the 'Business Representative' and the 'Sponsor'. In addition to budget responsibility, the authorities for both types of Product Owners are fairly similar. The Product Owner type 'Sponsor' is initially often filled in by business managers, IT managers and customers (in a business-to-business setting) for example. Since Sponsor Product Owners have their own budget, they typically also have more opportunities for up- and downscaling the Development Team. This doesn't mean that you should add or subtract people per Sprint! It could be however, that due to enormous success of the product, the Product Owner would like to scale up to a second or a third team. By having this flexibility and authority these 'Sponsors' can therefore accelerate and delay developments much more, and therefore they have a greater impact on the return on investment and total cost of ownership of the product. Besides the budget authority, Sponsor Product Owners also have a bigger say in 'what' needs to be done. He or she is allowed to define the work to be done, the projects to perform or business goals to achieve.

The Entrepreneur
The last type of Product Owner is called the 'Entrepreneur'. In practice, we also refer to this role as the 'mini-CEO'. This level of Product Ownership is what we ultimately want to achieve in organizations. This type of Product Owner can achieve the most impact for customers, users and the organization by far. The Entrepreneur Product Owner takes full responsibility for the product and also has full authority over the product. The Entrepreneur Product Owner is someone with a strong vision on the market, customers and the product. It is someone with passion for the product and is someone with strong leadership and communication skills. Entrepreneur Product Owners are ultimately responsible for the product and are therefore profit & loss responsible. Besides product development, they are also responsible for maintenance, operations, marketing, legal aspects and sales. That is why we typically refer to this level as 'mini-CEO'. It is a Product Owner who has his or her own 'mini-company' (which could be a mini-company within a large enterprise).

Growing responsibilities and authorities
So there are five types of Product Owners, each having their own focus, key responsibilities and authorities. With this growth model you can make an estimation for yourself which type of Product Owner you are, or which types of Product Owners you find in your organization. Remember that the (hierarchical) function within the organization only partially determines which type of Product Owner a person is. If a Product Owner used to be in a management function, he or she probably has some more authorities already. This may help Product Owners to grow faster through the maturity model, but it is not a prerequisite to be or to have been a manager! The authorities a Product Owner has are not only determined by their (previous) function. The authorities are mainly determined by the way you act. By the way the person behaves. In our experience, authorities aren't given away 'for free'. Getting more authorities needs to be earned. And the way you earn more authorities is by taking more responsibility and showing ownership.

But how do you take on more responsibilities as a Product Owner? Well, actually that is quite simple... You increase your responsibilities by taking more ownership and responsibility for the success of the product, step by step. For example, develop the product vision and actively promote it amongst your team, stakeholders and management. Actively collaborate with your key stakeholders. Show how you and your team are adding value for customers and users. Make value measurable. And also have a clear view on the costs. Create transparency on these topics and show that you are taking responsibility for the product. Be proactive and do not wait until someone does it for you. So, take initiative. With this you will create more room for yourself to decide things, and thus get more authorities. Successful Product Owners that we have met take responsibility. In many cases, these Product Owners started out as Scribes or Proxy's. Many of them have developed into Sponsors or Entrepreneurs.

The term 'Product Owner' isn't just made up, because the creators of Scrum 'needed a name'. The name of this role actually contains the word 'owner'. So the role is about 'owning' the product and it's about taking the responsibilities that come with owning a product. Therefore, ownership is exactly what you have to display to your stakeholders. This is not just about things like the product vision, Product Backlog and financial aspects. It's about your attitude, about your mindset and behaviors. So it may help to regularly reflect. Look yourself in the eye. Have you really done everything you could to improve the product? Are any setbacks caused by others, or could youhave done something in a different way? Take ownership!

I hope this blog helps you to gain some insights into the growth path for Product Owners and some steps you could take to increase your responsibilities and authorities as a Product Owner. There is of course much more you could do, but I'm also curious about your own experiences! What type of Product Owner are you? Which steps did you take to grow? What are the next steps for you as a Product Owner?

          O essencial da manhã: Os resultados da eleição americana e o governo Trump      Cache   Translate Page      

RIO — Os democratas conquistaram o controle da Câmara dos Deputados nas eleições de meio de mandato nos Estados Unidos, enquanto os republicamos aumentaram a maioria que já detinham no Senado. Pela primeira vez, Donald Trump terá de governar com uma das Casas do Legislativo sob comando da oposição.

O colunista Guga Chacra analisa o que significa esse resultado para o presidente americano. Ele avalia que a margem de Trump para implementar suas políticas mais controversas fica reduzida, mas ressalta que a vitória democrata não foi esmagadora.

A eleição americana teve alguns pontos históricos, como a vitória do primeiro governador abertamente gay e a escolha das primeiras representantes muçulmanas para a Câmara. O líder da "bancada brasileira" não conseguiu a reeleição.

          El retrete japonés es un inventazo: estas son las razones por las que apenas ha calado en el mundo occidental       Cache   Translate Page      

El retrete japonés es un inventazo: estas son las razones por las que apenas ha calado en el mundo occidental #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Uno podría confundirlos con instrumentos de tortura, pero los retretes japoneses son un pequeño prodigio de la tecnología más escatológica posible. Fabricantes como Toto se han convertido en la Dyson o la Apple del sector, pero esos avances no cuajan en el mundo occidental. Y eso que hasta Bill Gates ha tratado de impulsar la innovación en este segmento recientemente.

Seguro que habréis oído hablar de ellos y los habréis visto en acción. Puede que hayáis probado en vuestras carnes esos váteres que ahorran agua, permiten evitar el uso del papel higiénico que es insustituible en Occidente y además cuentan con otras muchas ventajas, como estar siempre calentitos para cuando hagamos una visita al inodoro. Con tantas virtudes, ¿por qué el retrete japonés no ha conquistado el resto del mundo?

Tecnología punta allí donde creíamos que nunca llegaría la tecnología

Los váteres o retretes japoneses son muy conocidos desde hace años. Los que viajan a Japón tienen la oportunidad de usarlos repetidamente porque allí están por todas partes, y de hecho un artículo de Priceonomics revelaba cómo en 2012 el 72% de los hogares japoneses contaban con uno de estos inodoros. Quartz tiene una estadística aún más reciente: era del 76% en 2014.

Japanese Toilet Buttons Cuidado donde tocas.

Los modelos que aparecieron a finales de los años 90 se han bautizado washlets desde entonces, y lo hicieron como una mezcla de nuestro tradicionales bidés y retretes. Sin embargo en Japón quisieron ir más allá, y además de aunar ambas funciones quisieron implementar otras nuevas que hicieron de la experiencia de ir al baño algo totalmente distinto a lo que conocemos en el resto del mundo.

Para empezar está esa función de bidé integrado que ciertamente puede asustar al utilizarla: un tubo con aspecto amenazador aparece de la parte trasera de la taza y unos chorros de agua salen para limpiar el ano e incluso la vulva en caso de su uso por las mujeres.

El amenazante chorro acaba convenciendo a quienes lo prueban, sobre todo por que permite completar una limpieza más efectiva y que además evita el uso de papel higiénico aunque se puede complementar con este último elemento. Se pueden ajustar la presión e incluso la temperatura del chorro, además de la posición de un chorro que es sorprendentemente certero si lo habéis probado (yo lo hice hace años).

Si no quieres usar papel, los washlets también incorporan sistemas de secado con temperatura ajustable, que se suman a los calentadores de asiento, sistemas de iluminación (muy útil en visitas nocturnas al excusado) o incluso detectores de proximidad que se abren o se cierran conforme a la posición del usuario.

Las innovaciones técnicas de estos inodoros no se han detenido ahí: Toto mostraba hace años como su sistema "Tornado Flush" es un eficaz sustituto de pulsar el botón de la cisterna que mejora la limpieza del inodoro y además lo hace ahorrando cantidades ingentes de agua. La empresa de hecho colabora con el ámbito académico para evaluar nuevas tecnologías para la cisterna en los que incluso hacen uso de supercomputadoras para modelar la física del agua.

A esas mejoras se le suman incluso las que afectan a nuestra salud: los fabricantes afirman que los chorros ayudan en casos de hemorroides y estreñimiento, pero es que además de ello en las últimas generaciones de producto se incluyen sensores que permiten medir el azúcar en sangre basándose en la orina o incluso el pulso, presión sanguínea o contenido de grasa en el cuerpo.

Y si te preocupan los malos olores, también hay solución para eso, porque la llamada desodorización por ozono aplicada en algunos modelos ayuda a eliminar ese problema de forma eficiente y rápida según los fabricantes.

Y sin embargo, no triunfan fuera de Japón

Con todas esas ventajas —y seguro que nos olvidamos de algunas— lo que extraña es que estos inodoros no hayan sido un éxito fuera de Japón. Las razones son varias, y el idioma es probablemente una de ellas. Los símbolos y textos en japonés para estas tazas —si viajas allí puedes comprar una y traértela sin demasiados problemas— dificultaban su uso fuera del país asiático, pero hace dos años los fabricantes japoneses llegaron a un acuerdo para estandarizar esos símbolos y textos.

Como se explicaba en 2016 en el blog UnGatoNipón, hay algunas razones importantes para el reducido éxito de estos washlets fuera de Japón:

  • Voltaje: en Japón se utiliza un voltaje de 100-110 V, mientras que en España y otros muchos países se hace uso de voltajes de 220 V.
  • Enchufes en el baño: aunque es habitual encontrar enchufes para conectar el secador u otros accesorios en el baño, no es habitual encontrar estos enchufes al lado del retrete.
  • Tazas no compatibles: la forma de anclar la taza al "cuerpo" principal del inodoro no encaja si usamos una taza comprada en Japón. Para hacerlo hay que comprar un adaptador que solucione el problema, algo no trivial.

Hay otros inconvenientes que no son prácticos, sino sociales. Como apuntaban algunos fabricantes como las firmas Kohler o Brondell en Estados Unidos, este tipo de inodoros no acaban de convencer a los usuarios porque "convencer a alguien de cambiar sus hábitos en el uso del papel higiénico, que están arraigados en ellos desde la infancia, es como poco difícil". El resumen de Engadget era claro: todo el mundo hace caca, pero nadie quiere hablar de ello.

A pesar de todo ello no es imposible acceder a uno de estos productos, y de hecho en España la empresa Roca cuenta con los "inodoros ingeligentes" que por ejemplo aprovechan la tecnología In-Wash que lava con agua y disponen del resto de funciones que ya son comunes en inodoros japoneses. El precio, eso sí, es mucho más elevado, y el Roca In-Wash tiene un precio oficial de 1.921 euros.

Hay alternativas, y aquí es inevitable no mencionar a Xiaomi. Hace pocos meses la empresa que todos conocemos sobre todo por sus smartphones y dispositivos electrónicos presentó recientemente una taza de váter que precisamente permitía contar con algunas de las opciones de los váteres japoneses de forma más económica. Su Smartmi Small Smart Toilet Seat se puede encontrar en tiendas como eBay por 209 euros, por ejemplo.

Las opciones están ahí, pero no parece que fuera de Japón estemos demasiado dispuestos a hacer el cambio a un sistema que parece convencer a quien lo prueba.

          La última de Bill Gates es "reinventar del WC": inodoros que no requieren instalación y prometen un ahorro millonario      Cache   Translate Page      

La última de Bill Gates es

La desigualdad es quizás una de las patologías sociales más graves de la actualidad, sumada a la destrucción progresiva del planeta que está ocasionando nuestro paso por él. Pero por suerte la filantropía invade a personajes que en su momento amasaron una buena fortuna, con iniciativas tan llamativas y aparentemente prácticas como la idea de Bill Gates para reinventar los inodoros.

Algo que para muchos es un elemento más de la casa, algo básico que ya tenemos o que nos encontramos en cualquier cafetería o espacio público, pero que supone todo un lujo en ciertas ubicaciones, o bien algo imposible de integrar por lo que requiere su instalación. Al menos tal y como lo concebimos actualmente, lo cual pretende empezar a cambiar Gates con esta última iniciativa.

De revolucionar la informática a reinventar el WC

El eslogan de la Fundación Bill & Melinda reza que todas las vidas tienen el mismo valor y es lo que Gates ha perseguido con las iniciativas que puntualmente ha dado a conocer y con sus donaciones desde hace más de una década. Iniciativas de cara a cuidar el planeta tirando de satélites o la que hoy nos ocupa, pasando por carraspear a la esfera política en materia energética.

¿Qué es esto de reinventar el inodoro? En realidad es repensar el sistema que sustenta éste, el cual requiere una instalación y una energía que no puede proporcionarse en todos los lugares por falta de medios.

Inodoros que no requieren agua, alcantarillado o electricidad y que no expulsan los residuos a una fosa y un sistema de tuberías, sino que éstos se recogen para separarse y procesarse para que tengan un valor comercial (como agua limpia o fertilizante). De este modo, podrían instalarse en prácticamente cualquier lugar y sobre todo requerirían un menor coste de instalación y mantenimiento, lo que los convierte en candidatos potenciales a ser el sistema de elección en regiones con menos recursos.

Reinvent

Que la igualdad empiece también por la higiene

El proyecto se encuentra aún en fase de pruebas y la fundación de Gates lleva invertidos más de 200 millones de dólares durante los siete años que lleva estudiando este inodoro alternativo, apuntan en BBC. La idea es que las ciudades pobres puedan ahorrarse el costoso sistema de tuberías que describe Gates y que estos inodoros tengan un coste de mantenimeinto diario menor de 5 céntimos al día, explicó el fundador de Microsoft a CNN.

También pretende reducir el número de infecciones debidas a la falta de higiene y el coste sanitario millonario que esto supone. A este respecto, Gates citó datos como los 20.000 millones de Shigella o los 100.000 huevos de parásito que puede contener una taza de media, requiriendo una inversión anual de unos 223.000 millones de dólares sumando limpieza y tratamientos, lo cual podría reducirse con esta iniciativa.

No es casualidad que Gates eligiese China para el anuncio del proyecto. El país ya tuvo su "revolución del WC" iniciada por el presidente Xi Jinping, con la que se mejoró la higiene pero habiendo aún muchas regiones rurales para las que el sistema habitual de alcantarillados y gestión de residuos no son accesibles.

Aún no han dado detalles sobre cómo funcionan estos inodoros, pero según describen estarían cerca de lograr un sistema práctico, más limpio e incluso provechoso para estas áreas con menos recursos. Seguiremos atentos y esperando que tanto ésta como otras iniciativas contribuyan a que la higiene sea algo más habitual para quienes no tienen la suerte de nacer ya rodeados de ella.

O pote de fezes, alertou Gates, poderia conter "nada menos que 200 trilhões de rotavírus, 20 bilhões de bactéria Shigella e 100 mil ovos de vermes parasitas". "Eu preciso admitir: uma década atrás, eu não poderia imaginar que um dia saberia tanta coisa sobre cocô", brincou Bill Gates, na conferência. "Eu definitivamente nunca pensei que a Melinda precisaria me pedir para parar de falar sobre vasos sanitários e dejetos fecais na mesa de jantar." O fundador da Microsoft ajudou a abrir o evento de três dias na China - onde o líder Xi Jinping tornou a chamada "revolução do banheiro" uma prioridade política. Estavam em exibição vinte produtos sanitários de ponta, todos eles destinados a revolucionar as tecnologias sanitárias, separando líquidos de sólidos e eliminando subprodutos nocivos. "A questão não é mais se podemos reinventar o vaso e os sistemas sanitários", falou Gates. "A questão é quão rapidamente essa nova categoria de soluções de ponta será utilizada em larga escala". Segundo Gates, as invenções exibidas na exposição são "os avanços sanitários mais significativos em 200 anos". Fundador da Microsoft Bill Gates durante evento de tecnologia em Pequim, na China Thomas Peter/Reuters Falta de saneamento básico é crise crônica De acordo com a Organização Mundial da Saúde, 2,3 bilhões de pessoas ao redor do mundo ainda não têm acesso a instalações sanitárias básicas. Isso pode provocar doenças como cólera, diarreia e disenteria, que matam centenas de milhares de pessoas a cada ano. "Em países ricos, nós temos uma rede sanitária que traz água limpa, leva embora a água suja e, na maioria dos casos, há uma unidade de tratamento do esgoto", disse Gates à BBC. "À medida que surgem novas cidades, com muitas pessoas mais pobres, essa rede sanitária não foi construída - e é provável que jamais seja. Então, a questão é: é possível processar dejeto humano sem um sistema de esgoto?" A Fundação Bill & Melinda Gates declarou que espera que os novos banheiros sejam implementados primeiro em escolas e edifícios residenciais, até que os custos caiam e se tornem acessíveis em residências individuais. "Você está economizando todos os gastos com água e produtos de processamento (do esgoto). Mas nós ainda temos de reduzir o preço em cerca de 10 vezes - isso não é atípico para mercados de novos produtos". Nessa viagem, Gates também compareceu à primeira feira de Importação-Exportação da China, em Shangai, em um momento de tensão nas relações entre os Estados Unidos e a China. Os dois países, que são as duas maiores economias do mundo, estão no meio de uma guerra comercial.

The winners and losers from the midterms, Bill Gates wants to build a better toilet, a massive spending spree at Harrods goes off the rails, Alec Baldwin gets more bad news, and "single-use" is the word of the year. A record number of Ada County voters showed up at the polls in Tuesday's midterm election, part of statewide and national trend that saw unprecedented voter engagement. Idaho's next governor will be Brad Little, who led a Republican slate of candidates who were all successful in their respective contests for statewide office. Republican Janice McGeachin will become Idaho's first female Lieutenant Governor and Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra won a tight contest with Democratic challenger Cindy Wilson. The most-anticipated Gem State contest of the evening wasn't even close: A majority of Idaho voters said "yes" to Medicaid expansion, thumbing a collective nose to the Idaho Legislature which has repeatedly pushed back any previous attempt to expand Medicaid to cover tens of thousands of uninsured men, women and children. The other high-profile statewide proposition, an effort to return gambling machines to horse racing venues, went down to defeat following a bruising point/counterpoint media blitz from both sides. At the Idaho State Statehouse, a few Democrats were successful in upsetting incumbent Republican lawmakers in the Idaho House and Senate. In Boise's 15th legislative district, Democrat Steve Berch upended veteran Republican House Rep. Lynn Luker, and Democrat Jake Ellis defeated Republican House Rep. Patrick McDonald. In that same district's State Senate race, incumbent Republican Sen. Fred Martin was leading Democratic challenger Jim Bratnober by just a handful of votes, which will most probably trigger an official recount. In the Wood River Valley, Democrat Muffy Davis handily defeated Republican House Rep. Steve Miller; and in Eastern Idaho, Democratic challenger Chris Abernathy beat Republican House Rep. Dustin Manwaring. Big change will be coming to the Ada County Commission in 2019: two Democratic women won their respective races Tuesday night: Diana Lachiondo defeated Republican incumbent Commissioner Jim Tibbs; and Democrat Kendra Kenyon defeated Republican Sharon Ullman. At the Ada County Highway District, incumbent Paul Woods lost to challenger Mary May and incumbent ACHD Commissioner Kent Goldthorpe held off three challengers. Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson handily won reelection to the U.S. House, and he'll be joined by Republican Russ Fulcher who won his race to see who would take over the vacated seat of outgoing Congressman Raul Labrador. On the national level, Democrats gained control of the U.S. House and several governerships, but Republicans increased their majority in the U.S. Senate.

          Mexican Corn Chowder in the Kitchen      Cache   Translate Page      
First up, Sam e-mailed that he and his girlfriend like the soup recipe with creamed corn in it.  What was it?

 

People do love that recipe.  And, just FYI, I use two cans of creamed corn in the recipe below.

 

Here it is, from December 1, 2007:



Each week, Ava and C.I. are out on the road meeting with groups to discuss Iraq. Kat goes with them on those trips a great deal. With the weather getting colder, she has been in a soup mode and not really in the mood for canned soup. So Ava and C.I. whipped up a soup this week that Kat insisted they make "again and again." I asked them to write down the recipe and was told, "Trina, you have that book. You recommended it and we bought it." That was flattering.

What's the book? Kevin Mills and Nancy Mills' Help! My Apartment Has a Kitchen.


Mexican Corn Chowder
1 medium onion
2 medium celery stalks
2 tablespoons corn oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon flour
1 15-ounce can creamed corn
1/2 4-ounce can diced green chilies, (drained
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
Handful tortilla chips, whole or broken

Peel and finely chop the onion. Wash the celery stalks, trim and discard the ends and cut the stalks into 1/4-inch slices.
Heat the oil in a medium-size pot over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to soften.
Add the cumin and flour and stir carefully until both are fully absorbed into the onion/celery mixture. Add the corn, chilies, milk, salt and black pepper and stir thoroughly.
Cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the cheese and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes, or until the cheese melts and the soup is hot but not boiling. Ladle into bowls, sprinkle on a few tortilla chips, if you like, to provide crunch, and serve.

 

 

That’s a solid recipe.  So few things are solid these days.  Patrick Martin (WSWS) explains the bad news:



A new report from the Institute for Policy Studies, made public Tuesday, underscores the role of inherited wealth in the growth of social inequality in the United States. The report, titled, “Billionaire Bonanza: Inherited Wealth Dynasties in the 21st-Century United States,” analyzes the Forbes magazine list of the 400 wealthiest individuals in the United States, and finds that one-third of them derived their wealth primarily from inheritance from their parents or from an even older generation of the super-rich.

The three wealthiest of the dynasties, the Waltons, the Koch brothers and the Mars family, saw their combined wealth increase nearly 6,000 percent since 1982, while average household wealth in America actually declined slightly. These three families, based in retailing, oil production and food manufacturing respectively, had a combined wealth of $348.7 billion in 2018, up from $5.84 billion in 1982, adjusted to 2018 dollars.

Besides the seven Waltons, two Kochs and six Mars, the report notes nine Cargill heirs on the Forbes 400 list, along with five Johnsons (Fidelity Investments), nine Pritzkers (Hyatt Hotels), five heirs to the Cox media fortune, four heirs to the Duncan oil fortune, four Lauders (perfumes), five billionaires from the Johnson & Johnson empire, four Bass brothers (oil), three Strykers (medical equipment), and so on. The top 15 billionaire dynasties had a combined wealth of $618 billion.

In the 100 years since the first US “Gilded Age,” the vast wealth of the original dynastic families like the Rockefellers, Mellons, Carnegies and DuPonts has been dispersed among large numbers of descendants, as well as diluted by progressive taxation (before 1980) and, in a few cases, by transfer to foundations. Few heirs of the original “robber barons” now make the Forbes 400 list. But the report notes, “Now several decades into the second Gilded Age, dynastic wealth families once again appear in force on the Forbes 400 list. And like previous dynasties, a segment of these families use their considerable wealth and power to rig the rules of the economy to protect and expand their wealth and power.”

These wealthy families have pushed through major changes in the tax and inheritance laws that will allow them to pass on their wealth to the next generation virtually without hindrance—changes which will be taken advantage of by the new layer of super-rich, personified by the trio of Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, whose combined wealth is greater than that of the bottom half of the American population.

But their impact on American social and political life goes well beyond the immediate accumulation and preservation of family fortunes. The report begins by citing a warning by Paul Volcker—who, as the former chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, the US central bank, was intimately familiar with the political and social psychology of this layer—about the dangers of the rule over society by a tiny elite of the fabulously rich.

“The central issue is we’re developing into a plutocracy,” Volcker said. “We’ve got an enormous number of enormously rich people that have convinced themselves that they’re rich because they’re smart and constructive. And they don’t like government and they don’t like to pay taxes.” Hence the agenda of tax-cutting and deregulation carried out by Democratic and Republican administrations alike.

 

We are fleeced.  Daily.  Our politicians take our money for their salaries but refuse to actually represent us.  Our politicians take our money -- our tax dollars -- and refuse to spend those dollars to better our health, to better our education, to better our lives.  Instead, they fleece us dry and send that money to war and war makers and death and destruction.


This is C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot" for Friday:


Friday, November 2, 2018.  Actions in DC this weekend as the never-ending wars continue.


On this week's BLACK AGENDA RADIO, hosts Glen Ford and Nellie Bailey spoke with Omali Yeshitela about a number of topics including the actions in DC this weekend which include the march Saturday on the White House.


Nellie Bailey:  This year, the theme is US Out Of Africa. Omali Yeshitela is chairman of the Black Is Back Coalition.  He says the US Command in Africa (AFRICOM) is there to prop up foreign, economic and social control over the continent.  But Yeshitela says American global rule is in disarray.

Omali Yeshitela: Things are falling apart but it's an extremely dangerous moment as well -- which is one of those things that makes our mobilization so important and even how we've characterized our mobilization: There is no peace, Africa and Africans are at war, US to the world "Comply or Die."
I think it's quite appropriate, looking at what we see, that this chaos -- and some of it even maybe planned chaos -- this false debate that's going on between different sectors of the ruling class who are calling themselves Republicans and Democrats as part of a shell game that they play against the masses of people, with some of them using impoverished and desperate people, in order to make their political point while others are using the same phenomenon to make a point that speaks to reaction and calling on the whole reactionary history of the United States government and the White population of this country.  So you've got one sector with a very cynical and callous way of using the poverty, the oppression, even the actions of repressive sector of the bourgeois -- right now Trump represents the public face of that -- so you've got them using those actions to mobilize people, or attempt to mobilize people, for their own benefit which serves capital and not the people.  Then you've got people like Trump and the social base that he represents in terms of reaction.  All of them, again, using the people.  And that's why the Black is Back mobilization is so critical at this moment because it calls on African people to get organized.  It calls on Black people to get organized.  It calls on us to come to terms with the fact that even when we look at this crisis of imperialism, that there's an escalated aggression that's being made against our people, against the people of the world, and even against the ability of the people to protest against the things that are happening to us.  So it's a splendid moment but it's also, like I said, a very dangerous moment.  A wounded animal, as you know, as has often been described correctly so, is most dangerous and that's what we're looking at here with the United States government, US imperialism and, in many ways, imperialism in general.  But, of course, the hegemon is wounded and that creates an interesting sort of dynamics because everyone who is the friend of the hegemon is not a friend.  They're a friend because it's  the hegemon, it's got the guns, it's got all the money, it's got all the influence or appears to have but as you see US imperialism showing any signs of weakness in that case you will see -- and we are seeing -- the emergence of other forces who are willing -- even if timidly -- to challenge the hegemon for its own space and for its own interest. It's a very interesting and critical moment in history and the Black is Back is right on time, I think, to be pushing this mobilization.





The Black is Back coalition notes:

Hundreds of black people from throughout the U.S. and from every town, city and state, will descend on Washington, D.C.—capital of imperialist white power—on November 3 and 4.
This is a Call for you to take your place in the rally, march and conference with the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations under the banner: “There is no Peace: Africa and Africans are at War!”
For nine years in a row the Black is Back Coalition has been leading the charge to unite our people against the growing, desperate white nationalist attacks by the U.S. and other imperialist countries against our people and the colonized peoples and countries of the U.S. and the world.
The Coalition is calling on everyone to join with our brothers and sisters at Malcolm X Park on Saturday, November 3 at 12 noon. Numerous speakers that represent our community’s demand for self-determination and our historical opposition to imperialist white power will expose the relentless war being waged against Africa, African people and the peoples of the world.
At 2 P.M. there will be a black people’s march on the White House. Then there will be another rally at Lafayette Park across the street from the White House.
On Sunday at 12 noon the people will gather for a conference at the Stuart Center, 821 Varnum Street NE for a full discussion of all these issues and resolutions of how we should move to defend ourselves against the war on our people in a process that will build a new world without black oppression and human exploitation.
Every day the blood-stained list of African people within the U.S. who are shot or killed by U.S. white citizens or police grows grotesquely long. In 47 of the cities with the largest police departments, police shot at least 3,649 African people from 2010 through 2016.
These same domestic military occupation forces are the primary instruments leading to the prisons within the U.S. bursting at the seams with African people who are now organizing within the prison concentration camps for an end to this colonial slavery that is justified by the 13th Amendment to the U.S. constitution.
Regular white citizens are also assaulting our people with sometimes deadly consequences—in churches, on college campuses, at public transportation stations and in fast food restaurants, to name just a few places.
In St. Louis-Ferguson, Missouri, with one of the highest incidences of police shootings in the U.S., the U.S. government, through the weapon of eminent domain, has confiscated nearly 100 acres of land previously owned by African people, to build a massive, $2 billion super-secret international spy station known as the National Geo-spatial Intelligence Station (NGA).
This spy agency, to have its own police force in our community, is also part of an ever-expanding gentrification process in St. Louis that is daily driving our people into deeper poverty and despair.
The Black is Back Coalition is also calling on you to join your brothers and sisters protesting the growing U.S. military secret wars in Africa.
Hundreds of U.S. Special Operation forces are violently destroying villages and supporting thuggish African governments to prevent African workers from coming to power and gaining control of our own resources for Africa’s benefit instead of the benefit of white power.
U.S. Special Operations forces are also in Africa to contend with China for economic influence. In addition, they are there to protect the interests of its junior imperialist partners on the Continent that contains at least a third of the world’s known mineral assets.
The U.S. has created a vast war project called the Africa Command or AFRICOM, a command center solely dedicated to keeping Africa under white power control and our people in a permanent state of violently impoverished exploitation and indirect colonial domination.
The Black is Back Coalition is calling on African people to join in our protest of U.S. initiated or actual armed and economic warfare against and political destabilization of other countries like the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Syria, Iran, Venezuela, Nicaragua, China and Russia—countries that have refused to comply with U.S. imperialist demands.
The Coalition’s 19-point National Black Political Agenda for Self-determination calls for an end to AFRICOM. It also demands that the U.S. get out of Africa, Asia and Latin America and pay reparations to Africa and Africans everywhere.
We demand the upliftment of African women and the African family as well as black community control of police and the immediate withdrawal of U.S. domestic military forces from the African community.
Come out to join with your brothers and sisters in the demand for the release of all our political prisoners and the end to the mass incarceration of our people and the release of African people from the colonial concentration camps called prison.
The escalated attack by the U.S. on Africa and African people worldwide is evidence of the growing crisis of imperialist white power. The Black is Back Coalition is calling on all African people and friends of peace to join with us in a great celebration of resistance.
We can win!
We will win!
We are winning!

Why the need to mobilize?

Because of idiots like this.




This is who Trump is afraid of. The reason more troops are on the border now than currently in Iraq. LOOK. 








Debra Messing 'discovers' Iraq.  How very Columbus of her.  She discovers it to complain that more US troops are on the US border than in Iraq.  She's upset that there are not more US troops in Iraq.  15 years and counting of ongoing war and Debra is upset that more US troops are not in Iraq.

To Debra, this passes for 'logic.'  Because, to Debra, continued and never-ending war -- hell, war period -- is a-okay and normal.  War period?  Debra Messing didn't speak out about the Iraq War.  It was even a joke on WILL & GRACE.  Debra's character protested not getting free noodles.  That she protested.  She said good people have to care and it was all a joke that she didn't care about war.

That's what the world is up against, selfish bitches who don't give a damn about people dying.  The only time people matter to the Debra Messings is when they can be used for political football.  So, to attack Donald Trump, Debra suddenly 'discovers' the Iraq War.  She's fine with it.  She doesn't protest it.  She doesn't even call for an end to it.  She's glad it's there because it allows her to use it for political football.

Shame on anyone who buys into her crap.

You can call out what Donald Trump is doing without seeking to justify war.

Otherwise, you're just the ridiculous Jim Sciuotto who only mentions Iraq to either endorse it so he can whine about the march or to endorse it so he can whine about the fact that, in two years of being president, Donald Trump has not visited Iraq.  (For those who've forgotten, in eight years as president, Barack Obama only visited Iraq once.)

The wars are nothing but political props that the Jims and Debras grab on to repeatedly to try to political football.  The fact that people are dying doesn't matter to them.  Like the late Barbara Bush, they don't bother their 'beautiful minds' with such things.

Oh, look, here's another stupid bitch.



As Trump plays golf & holds rallies at the expense of taxpayers, he has the nerve to tell our servicemen and women that he can't visit them in Iraq or Afghanistan because he's "very busy".

These people are fighting for us!  Trump is not!

Trump doesn't care!







The US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan aren't fighting "for us."  They're fighting because the US government sent them there.  Why are they there?  Why are they still there?

Those are questions the world is asking but not questions that bother Tiny Ed because he's all about using war as a political football.  He's a con artist who defrauded people and the fact that he's part of the 'resistance' should scare any honest participant of that group.



They don't care what happens in Iraq.  They don't care about the people of Basra.




Political and civil authorities in ’s oil-rich region of revealed that activists are planning  demonstrations again, in light of the suspension of parliamentary membership of a number of their lawmakers.





The protests are starting again.  Already, there's been a sit-in.  They were put on hold for the religious pilgrimage but they are returning.  Why?  Oil rich Basra produces so much wealth for the government of Iraq yet the people in Basra need jobs (the multi-nationals stealing oil from Iraq don't even try to pretend to employ a significant number of locals).  The people can't drink the water unless they want to be part of the over 100,000 so far that have been hospitalized for drinking the water.  They don't have regular electricity which was a nightmare in the oppressive heat of summer but will also be bad as winter arrives and temperatures drop.


Not only have these issues not been addressed, there's also the appearance -- on the part of Prime Minister Adel Abdul al-Mahdi -- that these issues are not pressing.

This appearance is upsetting politicians in Basra.



4 Iraq MPs protest government failure to honour Basra, Basra has 25 seats in Iraqi parliament  "Four Iraqi lawmakers have suspended their membership in the government after no ministers were chosen to represent Basra in the government" via

Bill Gates Unveils Futuristic Toilet That Turns Human Waste To Fertilizer

U.S. billionaire philanthropist, Bill Gates, on Tuesday, unveiled a futuristic toilet in Beijing, that doesn’t need water or sewers and uses chemicals to turn human waste into fertilizer.
 
The Microsoft Corp co-founder, who a day earlier was one of the high profile guests at a major trade event in Shanghai, also lauded the globalized and free trade systems that made the toilet technology possible.
 
“I honestly believe trade allows every country to do what it’s best at,” he told Reuters in an interview on Tuesday.
 
“So when I talk about components of this toilet being made in China, others in Thailand, others in the United States - you really want to be bringing together all of that IQ so that you’re getting that combination.”

The toilet, which Gates said was ready for sale after years of development, is the brainchild of research projects funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s biggest private philanthropy organization. There are multiple designs of the toilet but all work by separating liquid and solid waste.
 
“The current toilet simply sends the waste away in the water, whereas these toilets don’t have the sewer. They take both the liquids and solids and do chemical work on it, including burning it in most cases,” Gates told Reuters.
 
He compared the change from traditional toilets to waterless models as similar to development in computing around the time he founded Microsoft in the mid-1970s.
 
Bill Gates Unveils Futuristic Toilet That Turns Human Waste To Fertilizer
 
“In the way that a personal computer is sort of self contained, not a gigantic thing, we can do this chemical processing at the household level,” he said.
 
KICKING TIRES
 
Poor sanitation kills half a million children under the age of five annually and costs the globe over $200 billion a year in healthcare costs and lost income, according to the foundation.
 
Gates’ foundation has committed roughly $200 million to the toilet project and expects to spend the same amount again before the toilets are viable for wide-scale distribution.
 
Bill Gates Unveils Futuristic Toilet That Turns Human Waste To Fertilizer
 
“This year the volume of toilets will literally be in the 100s while people are still kicking tires (testing them),” Gates said.
 
During a speech at the Beijing event, Gates held up a clear jar of human faeces to illustrate the importance of improving sanitation.
 
“It’s a good reminder that in (the jar) there could be 200 trillion rotavirus cells, 20 billion Shigella bacteria, and 100,000 parasitic worm eggs.”
 
It is the first time Gates’ foundation has addressed an event in China, where President Xi Jinping is promoting a three-year “toilet revolution” to build or upgrade 64,000 public toilets by 2020 to help boost tourism and economic growth.
 
Gates said the next step for the project is to pitch the concept to manufacturers, saying he expects the market for the toilets to be over $6 billion by 2030.

"So when I talk about components of this toilet being made in China, others in Thailand, others in the United States - you really want to be bringing together all of that IQ so that you're getting that combination."

Gates' trip comes amid trade tension between China and the United States, the world's two largest economies, which have slapped tit-for-tat tariffs on goods worth billions of dollars.

The toilet, which Gates said was ready for sale after years of development, is the brainchild of research projects funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the world's biggest private philanthropy organisation.

Textkopie, von mir: Man sollte auch wissen, das Petitionen nur BITTGESUCHE für uns Sklaven sind. Also auch mit genug Stimmen abgelehnt werden können, ohne Probleme. Das bedeutet nur, sie kommen auf den Tisch. Ich habe auch schon erlebt, wo ne Petition inhaltlich WIRKLICH an die Wurzel der Probleme ging (zu dem ganzen feindlichen System, um da evt gegenwirken zu können... die haben fleissig Stimmen gesammelt und nur wenige Tage vor Beendigung wurde die Petition einfach entfernt, was die Unterzeichner mehrheitlich dann nicht mehr mitbekommen haben können, Hauptsache Beschäftigungstherapie. Was auch schon geschah, das man ne Frist (absichtlich?!!!) verstreichen lies und die Petition einreichte, als es zu spät war noch was zu machen und Manche Petitionen klingen zwar erstmal gut, aber sind es nicht unbedingt und Andere kann man sofort erkennen, das sie gegen Unsereiner gerichtet ist. Auch Demos snd mehrheitlich gesteuert, aber eigenes Thema (Übrigens auch die großen Revolutionen UND Kriege die letzten Jahrhunderte). Also erst lesen und dann.... nur ein kleiner Tipp. Die Plattform change.org, dahinter stecken auch keine Gutmenschen (Im Sinne von wirklich gut, nicht die man so abwertend nennt und in Wahrheit schlechte Menschen sind, Manche werden mich sicher verstehen).... Ich suche da mal was.... CHANGE.ORG: DIE FINANCIERS UND DER EIGENTLICHE ZWECK HINTER DER ONLINE-PETITIONSPLATTFORM https://www.konjunktion.info/2018/08/change-org-die-financiers-und-der-eigentliche-zweck-hinter-der-online-petitionsplattform/ 13 AUGUST 2018 1.862 AufrufeArtikel versendenbill gates, Change.org, manipulation, Online-Petition, Social Engineering, usa, wahlen Fast jeder dürfte schon einmal eine Mail von Change.org, verbunden mit dem Aufruf an einer Online-Petition zu einem bestimmten Thema teilzunehmen, in seinem Mailkasten gefunden haben. Aber was wissen wir eigentlich über die Organisation Change.org? Finanziert wird das Portal laut eines Artikels der New York Times von 2014 von Leuten wie Bill Gates, Gründer von Microsoft Jerry Yang, Mitgründer von Yahoo, Evan Williams, Mitgründer von Twitter Richard Branson, Chef von Virgin Airlines Pierre M. Omidyar, Mitgründer von ebay Reid Hoffman, Mitgründer von LinkedIn und ein paar weiteren Personen von insgesamt etwa einem Dutzend Investoren, die Change.org finanziell über Wasser halten. Change.org ist, was viele nicht wissen dürften, keine Non-Profit-Organisation, sondern eine For-Profit-Organisation wie Change.org-Financier Pierre M. Omidyar auf seiner eigenen Website schreibt: Obwohl es sich um ein Dot-org-Websuffix handelt, handelt es sich um eine gewinnorientierte Firma. — (Despite having a dot-org web suffix, it is a for-profit company.) Der Geschäftsführer von Change.org, Ben Rattray bestätigt mit nachfolgender Aussage (indirekt) Omidyar: Der Grund, warum wir aufgabenorientierte Investoren mit langfristigen Horizonten suchen, ist, dass wir uns somit auf das Produkt konzentrieren können. — (The reason we want mission aligned investors with long-term horizons is so we can focus on the product.) Doch von welchem “Produkt” spricht hier Rattray eigentlich? Eigentlich ist die Antwort auf die Frage ganz einfach und offensichtlich. Das “Produkt” ist Social Engineering. Unter Social Engineering versteht man: Die Verwendung einer zentralisierten Planung, um den sozialen Wandel zu bewältigen und die zukünftige Entwicklung und das Verhalten einer Gesellschaft zu regulieren. (Im Kontext der Informationssicherheit) Die Verwendung von Täuschung, um Einzelpersonen dazu zu bringen, vertrauliche oder persönliche Informationen preiszugeben, die für betrügerische Zwecke verwendet werden können. — (1. The use of centralized planning in an attempt to manage social change and regulate the future development and behavior of a society. (In the context of information security) The use of deception to manipulate individuals into divulging confidential or personal information that may be used for fraudulent purposes.) Im bereits erwähnten Artikel der New York Times von 2014 stellt der Autor im Bezug auf Definition 1 die indirekte Frage, wie viel Einfluss Change.org wirklich auf die Gesellschaft mit seinem Tun hat, und bekommt die entsprechende Antwort von Rattray geliefert: Petitionen sind jedoch nicht alles, was Change.org anstrebt. Herr Rattray sagte, er hoffe, dass es auch eine Plattform für die Organisation von Wahlen, Fundraising und mehr werden würde. — (But petitions are not all that Change.org aspires to organize. Mr. Rattray said he hoped it would also become a platform for organizing voting, fund-raising and more.) Und Change.org ist inzwischen nicht “untätig geblieben” und gilt als wichtige Plattform zur Beeinflussung von Wählermeinungen und Stimmungsbilder. Auch bei den anstehenden Mid-Term-Wahlen im November 2018 wird Change.org versuchen, die Wähler mit bestimmten Themen und Online-Petitionen in eine gewollte Richtung zu drängen, die sicherlich nicht zum Nutzen der einfachen Menschen sein wird. Wenn dann zudem die “vereinte Macht der US-Medien” dazu kommt, werden sich nur noch sehr wenige kritische Stimmen gegen den Mainstream auflehnen (können). Berücksichtigt man dann noch die aktuelle “Säuberungswelle” von Youtubern, Twitter-Accounts usw. dazu, kann sich jeder selbst denken, welche Propagandawelle demnächst auf uns zurollen wird. Noch ne Anmerkung von mir: Ich erinnere ein Foto, schon Jahre her, da wurden Leute von sozialen Netzwerke, die Big Bosse und Eigentümer von Obama gemeinsam eingeladen und sassen ALLE an einem Tisch. dabei der Yahoo Boss, Google Gründer, glaube ich, jedenfalls von Google, Oracle und einige mehr, ich kann nicht mehr beschwören, ob auch von Youtube bei war, jedenfalls zensiert seit JAHREN auch Youtube wie Bolle, nicht erst seit letzten Gesetz "gegen" eben solche Plattformen. Wofür teilweise Youtube sogar SELBER verantwortlich, Klickzahlen werden manipuliert, Vieles Merkwürdige geschieht da..., was ich damit sagen will, natürlich sind solche Gesetze übelst, aber in Wahrheit spielt YT, Google, auch Vimeo ect da mit und wenn Opposition heucheln, meinen es i.d.R. nicht wirklich so. Wer hat übrigens das Internet erfunden? Viel Spass beim recherchieren, der Feind und entsprechend wird auch auf Aufklärung negativ eingewirkt. Das möchte man nicht.... Weitere Kopie (Teilantwort an eine Userin): Es gibt oder gab z.B. ne ANGEBLICHE Graswurzelbewegung avaaz.org. Mal gegen Delphinmorde, mal gegen Monsanto und Bienensterben, im TV sah mal bei 3 sat einen Redner, von den Grünninen, im Hintergrund eine Demo zu sehen und eine riesige Pappmacheebiene, darauf stand AVAAZ.org Dann Demos gab es in Indien, betreff Vergewaltigungen von Frauen und dann erinnere ein Foto, mit vielleicht gerade mal 5 Frauen, die indisch aussahen, vor einer Wand. Theoretisch hjätte es auch in Hintertupfingen aufgenommen sein können. Hielten ein Schild, mit indischen Schriftzeichen, darunter aber stand: AWAAZ.org, dann ne angeblich vergewaltigte Frau, ich glaube aus Österreich, die waren (mit Mann, der dabei gesessen hatte) in Indien und die Frau wurde von mehreren Männern angeblich vergewaltigt und der Mann mußte zusehen. als sie darüber berichteten, auch der Mann, erschien mir wie ein Unbeteiligter, keine Emotionen, was mich verwunderte und ich bestreite nicht, das in Indien es Vergewaltigungen und Säureattentate ect gibt und genauso mit Monsanto und Bienensterben, aber sie steuern trotzdem auch dies in gelenkte Bahnen... Aber bevor mich noch mehr verfranze in allem Möglichen.... AVAAZ.ORG wurde von ROCKEFELLER finanziert, gegründet und von einer ominösen Werbefirma AUSGETÜFTELT. Nebenbei.... machten Propaganda zum Krieg gegen Syrien und Libyen, natürlich im Namen von Menschenrechten. sie sammelten Unterschriften und Geld dafür. Dazu hatten zwei Förderer, die auf ihrer Webseite standen: Microsoft (Bill Gates) und IBM. BEIDE fand ich auch als Werbepartner bei dem PSEUDO-Aufklärermedium: Deutsche Wirtschaftsnachrichten im Netz. Die binnen weniger Tage BEIDE dort am Start sah, war ja nicht jeden Tag drauf. DAMALS konnte man noch dort kommentieren, die ZENSIERTEN schlimmer, als manch MSM im Netz. Wurden danach auch noch von einem Bilderberger aufgekauft, vom Dornierverlag, zumindest kaufte sich zu Teilen ein, hatte größere Anteile, aber schon zuvor waren nicht koscher. Ein Stück weit Wahrheit ist natürlich bei Allen dabei. Da Du fragtest... Naja, ich bin jeden Tag sehr viele Stunden jeden Tag im Netz und da bekommt man eben etwas hier, etwas da, , etwas von Usern ect mit und man versucht dann Dinge miteinander zu verknüpfen, hätte ich ein besseres Gedächtnis, ist wirklich nicht gut, aber im Gegensatz zu früher dennoch deutlich besser. Manches bleibt etwas besser im Kopf durch dauernde Wiederholungen, wenn man auch immer wieder Dinge verlinkt oder ein Video auch drei mal ansieht. Leider verschwindet dann Anderes dafür wieder schnell aus dem Hirn, aber gebildete Meinung bleibt. also warum man ne Meinung hat, auch wenn man nicht mehr so gut oder nicht sagen kann, durch was man Sie sich bildete oder nur noch paar Fetzen davon Aber ich informiere mich schon ne Weile längst nicht mehr so wie "früher" und tagesaktuell, dafür schreibe deutlich mehr und verlinke und habe eben da paar Dinge zu abgespeichert, die gerne immer wieder bringe oder Ähnliches und Manches davon finde auch noch wichtiger, wie nur das Galama zu betrachten, also eben das größere Bild. Zu Chemtrails habe z.B. auch paar Links gespeichert, zu 9/11, zu Russland eben.... Zu den False Flags hatte auch, aber da ist das Alllermeiste gelöscht, Kanäle auch dicht und.... Das BESTE ist weg, das bei Bedarf einkopieren kann, leider wurde ja überall schon und immer wieder, auch wenn Videos neu gesucht hatte, Reuploads oft wieder... wieder gelöscht.... Es wurden auch Kanäle mit vielen Videos dicht gemacht, da fehlen dann mal tausend oder 2000 Videos im Extremfall, ich könnte da zwei Beispiele nennen und Beide hatten auch selbst übersetzte Clips und eigenes....und du findest höchstens Bruchteile wieder, sofern darum weisst, sofern Reuploads.

"Debo decir que hace una década nunca imaginé que sabría tanto sobre la caca". La cita es del estadounidense Bill Gates, filántropo multimillonario fundador del imperio de tecnología Microsoft.

          Bill Gates vrea să economisească 233 miliarde dolari prin… reinventarea toaletei      Cache   Translate Page      
Co-fondatorul Microsoft, Bill Gates, crede că toaletele sunt o afacere serioasă şi pariază pe faptul că reinventarea acestor instalaţii sanitare de bază poate salva o jumătate de milion de vieţi omeneşti şi poate permite realizarea unor economii de peste 200 de miliarde de dolari, informează Bloomberg. Miliardarul filantrop, a cărui fundaţie Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation a cheltuit 200 de milioane de dolari în ultimii şapte ani pentru a finanţa cercetări în domeniul instalaţiilor sanitare, a prezentat marţi un număr de aproximativ 20 de noi modele de toalete şi instalaţii de procesare a dejecţiilor destinate să elimine patogenii dăunători şi să convertească dejecţiile în apă curată şi îngrăşăminte. “Tehnologiile pe care le vedeţi aici sunt cele mai mari progrese în domeniul instalaţiilor sanitare din ultimii 200 de ani”, a declarat Bill Gates cu ocazia Reinvented Toilet Expo care a început marţi la Beijing. Bill Gates a explicat participanţilor că o nouă abordare cu privire la sterilizarea dejecţiilor umane ar putea evita decesul a aproximativ 500.000 de copiii şi ar economisi 233 miliarde de dolari ca urmare a evitării costurilor asociate cu diaree, holeră şi alte afecţiuni provocate de calitatea nesatisfăcătoare a apei, instalaţiilor sanitare şi igienei. Fără alternative cu costuri [...]
          Would You Take These 8 Bets About the Future?      Cache   Translate Page      

A child born in 2019 will turn 30 by the middle of the century. How will her interactions with energy change by then?

Interchange co-host Shayle Kann recently penned a piece celebrating his colleague's expected daughter. He outlined eight different scenarios that "bug" will face in her lifetime — and then asked readers to bet on his predictions.

Shayle writes: "The reason I’m introducing Bug relates to a famous quote from Bill Gates’ 1996 memoir: 'We always overestimate the change that will occur in the next two years and underestimate the change that will occur in the next 10. Don’t let yourself be lulled into inaction.' In 10 years, Bug will be entering 5th grade. If we underestimate the change that will happen by then, just imagine what her world will look like as she reaches these milestones and those beyond."

In this episode, we decide whether or not to take Shayle’s bets about the future.

Here are Shayle's predictions:

  • Bet #1: Bug will control machines with her voice more than with her keyboard.
  • Bet #2: Bug will never personally drive a car.
  • Bet #3: By the time Bug buys her first home, especially if she’s in an urban environment, her surroundings will transformed. 
  • Bet #4: By the time Bug shops for her own groceries, >20% of her produce will be grown indoors.

  • Bet #5: In Bug’s first home of her own, more than half of her electricity load will dynamically respond to grid or price signals.
  • Bet #6: By the time Bug reaches 30 (in the year 2050), electricity’s market share of final energy consumption will more than double.
  • Bet #7: More than 50% of Bug’s electricity, as represented by the national breakdown, will come from renewables by the time she’s a sophomore in high school.
  • Bet #8 : Bug will live over 200 years, and for most of her life, electricity will be her only food.

The winners and losers from the midterms, Bill Gates wants to build a better toilet, a massive spending spree at Harrods goes off the rails, Alec Baldwin gets more bad news, and "single-use" is the word of the year. A record number of Ada County voters showed up at the polls in Tuesday's midterm election, part of statewide and national trend that saw unprecedented voter engagement. Idaho's next governor will be Brad Little, who led a Republican slate of candidates who were all successful in their respective contests for statewide office. Republican Janice McGeachin will become Idaho's first female Lieutenant Governor and Superintendent of Public Instruction Sherri Ybarra won a tight contest with Democratic challenger Cindy Wilson. The most-anticipated Gem State contest of the evening wasn't even close: A majority of Idaho voters said "yes" to Medicaid expansion, thumbing a collective nose to the Idaho Legislature which has repeatedly pushed back any previous attempt to expand Medicaid to cover tens of thousands of uninsured men, women and children. The other high-profile statewide proposition, an effort to return gambling machines to horse racing venues, went down to defeat following a bruising point/counterpoint media blitz from both sides. At the Idaho State Statehouse, a few Democrats were successful in upsetting incumbent Republican lawmakers in the Idaho House and Senate. In Boise's 15th legislative district, Democrat Steve Berch upended veteran Republican House Rep. Lynn Luker, and Democrat Jake Ellis defeated Republican House Rep. Patrick McDonald. In that same district's State Senate race, incumbent Republican Sen. Fred Martin was leading Democratic challenger Jim Bratnober by just a handful of votes, which will most probably trigger an official recount. In the Wood River Valley, Democrat Muffy Davis handily defeated Republican House Rep. Steve Miller; and in Eastern Idaho, Democratic challenger Chris Abernathy beat Republican House Rep. Dustin Manwaring. Big change will be coming to the Ada County Commission in 2019: two Democratic women won their respective races Tuesday night: Diana Lachiondo defeated Republican incumbent Commissioner Jim Tibbs; and Democrat Kendra Kenyon defeated Republican Sharon Ullman. At the Ada County Highway District, incumbent Paul Woods lost to challenger Mary May and incumbent ACHD Commissioner Kent Goldthorpe held off three challengers. Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson handily won reelection to the U.S. House, and he'll be joined by Republican Russ Fulcher who won his race to see who would take over the vacated seat of outgoing Congressman Raul Labrador. On the national level, Democrats gained control of the U.S. House and several governerships, but Republicans increased their majority in the U.S. Senate.
