          Prognosticators Have Never Learned How To Rate Races In A Wave Election-- And Pollsters Can't Get Their Models Straight      Cache   Translate Page      



Polls are all based on "likely voters." A campaign manager I was talking to last week was in a rush because he was still dragging homeless people onto buses to feed them sandwiches, etc and get them to the early voting stations. Over a thousand. Likely voters? Not a chance. Early voting shows "unexpected" upturns for women voters, black voters, Latino voters and millennials voters. How many extra seats is that worth to the Democrats beyond what the pollsters and prognosticators predicted? 10? 20? 30?

Last week Time Magazine warned them: Youth Voter Turnout in the Midterm Elections Could Be Historic, According to a New Poll. "Young voters could turn out to vote at record-breaking levels in the midterm elections next month, according to a new poll. The poll, released Monday by the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, found 40% of 18 to 29-year-olds say they will 'definitely vote' in the midterm elections on Nov. 6. Youth voter turnout has historically been dismal in midterm elections, which tend to draw fewer voters overall than presidential election years. The highest rate of youth voter turnout in past midterm elections was 21% in both 1986 and 1994, according to the Harvard report... In the 2014 midterm elections, 19.9% of adults under 30 voted-- 'the lowest rate of youth turnout recorded in the past 40 years.' In the 2016 presidential election, 46.1% of adults under 30 voted-- an increase from 2012, but still the lowest turnout rate of any age group."
In this year’s poll, a larger percentage of young Democrats (54%) than young Republicans (43%) indicated they were likely to vote.. Overall, 66% of respondents supported Democrats taking back control of Congress, compared to 32% for Republican control.
So how's that working out today? We don't know yet, but what we do know is that millennials turned out big in early voting. Yesterday, the Washington Post reported that early voting is pointing to a "Youth Wave."
Youth turnout rates in the midterm early vote are up by 125 percent compared to 2014, according to Catalist, a voter database servicing progressive organizations-- an eye-popping and historically high figure, say strategists on both the left and the right.

Young Americans ages 18 to 29 who say they are definitely voting tilt leftward, according to polls. But the data also shows young Republicans are bubbling with enthusiasm headed into tomorrow.

...2020 implications: Among young people polled, 59 percent said they would “never” vote for President Trump vs. 11 percent who said they'd be “sure to” vote for him.

... GOP pollster Chris Wilson, the CEO of WPA Intelligence, told us he thought it was a “bit too much” to call the turnout “historic.” But he said the electorate is looking younger “than both the 2016 and 2014 general elections. “Voters under 25 are outpacing their vote share from both the 2016 and 2014 general. Proportionately it’s not enough to make a huge difference, but it’s more,” Wilson said.

Nine months after 17 students were killed in a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., Della Volpe's firm, SocialSphere, found that school shootings are the most worrisome issue to young Americans.



Surge in activism = a surge in voting: Tom Bonier, a Democratic  strategist and head of the firm Targetsmart, told us that skeptics initially cast doubt on the firm's findings that the “share of youth registrants nationwide increased by 2.16 percent” after the Parkland shooting in February.  A September memo showed that turnout among young people increased by an average of 4 percent in the 2018 primaries vs. 2014 primaries-- and doubled in some battleground states compared to 2014. Per Bonier, “Pennsylvania . . . has seen youth voter registration surge by 10 points after [Parkland]. Youth voters make up nearly 60 percent of all new Pennsylvania registrants.”

The mass shooting generation is showing up: We spoke with Jackie Corin, co-founder of March for Our Lives, who voted for the first time last week. Corin, along with a handful of her peers, has been traveling the country, meeting with lawmakers and mass shooting survivors, speaking on college campuses and visiting communities to build what the group calls a “youth infrastructure” to carry over into 2020. 
Civic engagement is cool: “Activism is becoming more of a normalized activity for teenagers-- they are seeing their friends get involved with campaigns and issues and it’s spreading like wildfire,” Corin added.
Twitter working against Trump?: Corin also credited the spike in awareness and engagement to Trump's Twitter habits. “The president uses Twitter as main source of communication and that’s something that young people see every single day-- they’re always on Twitter and Instagram so they're more engaged about what's going on.”
Real progress: Since the Parkland shooting that killed 17, over 60 state laws have been passed tightening gun control. “The constant mass shootings are large motivators … it’s what has activated thousands and thousands of people across this country,” Corin said.
We still don't know if the shift pollsters are seeing in early voting will be reflected at the ballot box.


So far today, it very much looks like it is. Meanwhile, everyone agrees that the likeliest of likely voters are seniors, particularly retirees. It's undeniable that they vote more than any other age group and that in recent decades that have been more prone to vote Republican. That party preference seems to have flipped on its head this cycle. Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal reported that campaign donors "who identify their occupation as 'retired' gave 52% of the $326 million they contributed through Oct. 17 to Democrats, compared with 48% to Republicans according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. That is a reversal of their split four years ago-- and it’s a record amount of midterm money from retirees. This is the first midterms since the group began keeping donor industry data in 1990 in which retirees favor Democrats over Republicans. That year, retirees gave 76% of their $15 million in contributions to Republicans and 24% to Democrats. As social security and Medicare have become hot-button political issues, retiree donors have steadily crept toward Democrats, the center’s data show. By 2002, the GOP advantage among retiree donors had declined to 63% versus 36%. Eight years later, the split was 55%-44%."

Hello Richard,

Thank you for the reply. While I can understand how that note could be interpreted that way, what you have described is unfortunately incorrect. What the note is trying to say is that you can only create one integration each time you run the process to add a new integration...so you cannot add two GP data marts by going through the File | Configure process just one time. You have to go to File | Configure two times to add in two data marts for two DYNAMICS databases, three times to add in three, etc. As long as what I stated earlier is true (where each DYNAMICS database has unique company IDs included in it), you can add as many data marts as your system has resources to handle for any number of DYNAMICS databases, or even connections to other Dynamics ERP systems like AX or SL. The same rules apply for the GP Legacy provider...you can only add one Legacy provider each time you run through File | Configure, but you can add more than one by running through the process more than once. Hope that helps clarify things! :)

Thanks!

          Information Warfare and Security Flaws: Why the American Voting System Is Still at Serious Risk      Cache   Translate Page      
As this election’s results come back, they will reveal whether the misinformation and propaganda campaigns conducted alongside the political ones were effective.

As the 2018 midterms proceed, there are still significant risks to the integrity of the voting system – and information warfare continues to try to influence the American public’s choices when they cast their ballots.

On the day of the election, there were a number of early hitches in voting at individual polling places, such as polling places opening late and vote-counting machines not plugged in. But there seem not – at least not yet – to be major problems across the country.

However, not all the election-related news and information voters have been encountering in recent days and weeks is accurate, and some of it is deliberately misleading. As this election’s results come back, they will reveal whether the misinformation and propaganda campaigns conducted alongside the political ones were effective.

Securing election systems

America’s electoral process remains highly fragmented, because of the country’s cherished tradition of decentralized government and local control. While this may leave some individual communities’ voting equipment potentially vulnerable to attack, the nation’s voting process overall may be more trustworthy as a result of this fragmentation. With no unified government agency or office to provide, administer and protect election technologies, there’s not one central national element that could fail or be attacked.

Across the country, though, many districts’ voters will cast ballots with the help of machines that have long-standing security concerns. Fortunately, 45 states keep a paper record of each vote cast – whether for fear of threats to voting integrity or just budget constraints preventing purchase of newer gear. But that means five states – Louisiana, Georgia, South Carolina, New Jersey and Delaware – don’t keep paper records of their voters’ choices.

Voting machine vendors have been reluctant to appear before Congress to explain their systems’ security practices – and shortcomings. However, federal agencies have helped some states reduce the likelihood of voting machines being hacked or physically tampered with.

Beyond voting machines

Election security is about much more than voting machines and vote-counting systems, though they are the most visible technologies at work on Election Day. State systems that track voter registrations, or allow users to register online, are enticing targets for hackers, too. Security firm Carbon Black reported that 81 million voter records from 20 states are available in online forums. This data, obtained by hacking various official and corporate databases, could be used to facilitate voter fraud or sow confusion at polling places on Election Day: How would you feel if you were told that someone using your name and address had already voted?

There are security concerns even in states like Oregon, where everyone votes on paper and mails in their ballots in advance of Election Day. That state’s election officials were targeted by hackers seeking to gain access to state email and database systems. With that access, attackers might be able to digitally impersonate a government official to send false or confusing emails, press releases or other notifications to citizens, journalists or poll workers.

Also at risk are public-facing official websites that carry election information. Merely changing the reported location of polling places or voting hours could prevent some people from voting. Also vulnerable are states’ methods of announcing preliminary election results. At a major internet security conference in August, children were able to compromise replicas of several states’ election-reporting systems. The most remarkable was that in just 10 minutes, an 11-year-old boy cracked the security on a copy of the Florida secretary of state’s website and was able to change the publicly announced vote totals for candidates. That could be enough to cast doubt on whatever was later reported as the official results – and the integrity of the system itself.

Managing information on social media

A more difficult threat to defend against is information warfare, which doesn’t attack voting machines or election officials’ computers. Rather, it targets voters’ perceptions and decisions, seeking to influence how they vote.

Long before the 2016 U.S. presidential election, information warfare was influencing elections around the world, including in Ukraine, Myanmar and Egypt. But after 2016, Facebook and Twitter came under intense scrutiny for their role in providing digital environments that facilitated the spread of misinformation to sow discontent, and special counsel Robert Mueller began investigating Russians’ influence efforts.

In the run-up to the 2018 midterms, Russians and others were still hard at work trying to influence Americans to vote in ways that help foreign interests. In October, the U.S. Department of Justice charged a Russian woman with creating thousands of fake social media accounts allegedly representing American citizens to “create and amplify divisive social media and political content” before the election.

This year, though, unlike two years ago, social media companies are taking action. Twitter and Facebook have both deleted thousands of accounts they identified as engaging in propaganda and influence-peddling. And they have made other efforts to identify and fight falsehoods on their platforms, too.

Nevertheless, online misinformation continues to thrive. More than 80 percent of the Twitter accounts that often shared links to false and misleading information in 2016 are still active today. And the amount of online misinformation is higher than it was two years ago.

Investigating alleged wrongdoing

U.S. intelligence and police agencies are concerned about the potential effects of misinformation on the American electorate. But large proportions of the country don’t trust those organizations to be politically independent. It doesn’t help that the White House continues to claim, without evidence, that voter fraud is a significant problem.

Mainstream news organizations can find themselves under scrutiny too, either for reporting falsehoods that appear to gain traction online or for failing to filter out or properly identify inaccurate information for their readers.

Looking ahead

Protecting democracy is a huge challenge. I’ve written before that it involves more than technical solutions to computer problems. The U.S. government, and the people it serves, must find the desire and the drive to establish secure and trustworthy procedures for running elections across the country. Education is also key, teaching people from an early age how to recognize propaganda and misinformation, and think critically about the information they encounter. Facts are not subject to alternative views; without widespread agreement on common objective realities, society and government cannot function well.

Technology continues to evolve, presenting challenges to individuals and society alike. Emerging “deepfake” technology is already helping create convincing videos of people appearing to say and do things they never said or did. In addition, intelligent social media bots are becoming more human-like, making identifying and blocking them much more difficult. That’s just some of the challenges that democracies will face in the future.

Many of these problems will not have a clearly defined fix, because they involve a nuanced balancing of individual rights and social necessities. Real and lasting solutions must come from civil discourse by rational and objectively informed people who have, above all, the actual honest desire to do it right.

The story, screenplay and direction are by Kushan Nandy; dialogues by Ashish Deo. The film is a murder mystery and is loosely based on James Hadley Chase's novel Tiger By The Tail. Contents [hide] 1 Plot overview 2 Cast 3 Notes 4 External links [edit]Plot overview The film opens with the brutal murder of Neeraj Shah (Sachin Dubey). His body is dumped in the trunk of a car. This crime isn't committed on impulse: Whoever did it had good reason. We then enter the life of a bank executive Pratyush Shelar (Atul Kulkarni). He gets home late on his anniversary because he had to console an old college classmate about her marital woes. His own marital woes are worsened when his wife Antara (Suchitra Pillai) kicks up a big fight and leaves their home with their daughter Saanjh. Pratyush is upset about this. His colleague Aslam Durrani (Harsh Khurana) picks up on this and suggests an exotic dancer Teesta (Shweta Menon). Pratyush is too upset to be interested. But Aslam is determined; later that night he calls Pratyush and pretends as though some thugs are about to kill him. He asks Pratyush to come immediately to a certain location. That location is 88 Antop Hill. Pratyush arrives. 88 Antop Hill is a halfway house mainly occupied by exotic dancers and escorts. Pratyush walks into the flat Aslam had mentioned; it is Teesta's lair. She attempts to seduce him but he refuses her advances. Upon her request, he takes her to the Moksha club and buys her a drink. (He doesn't drink.) She remarks that the bartender Sol (Rahul Panday) knows all her secrets. While leaving the bar, their car is attacked by an apparently drunk man, who seems to know Teesta. Teesta urges Pratyush to leave fast. When he brings her back home, he realizes that his car keys are missing. He waits as she looks for them. When Teesta gets into her bedroom, she is mysteriously murdered. She stumbles into Pratyush's arms, fatally stabbed, and collapses. Scared and confused, Pratyush leaves immediately. One of the neighbors, a weird and on-and-off senile old fellow called Murli Mansukhani (Shauket Baig) sees him leave. When the cops begin to investigate, they find that Teesta had a roommate Sonali (Jasmine) and that Sonali is engaged to a prominent businessman, K.K. Menon (Sanjay Singh). The investigating officer, and the hero of this movie, Inspector Arvind Khanvilkar (Rahul Dev), starts his work. The prime suspect is an unwitting Pratyush because he was the last person to see Teesta alive. A somewhat convoluted plot evolves. Sonali has several dark secrets and a good-for-nothing brother Prashant (Subrotto Dutta). Teesta was somehow connected to Sonali's dark past. Menon knows this and wanted to wipe out everything, including Prashant. He has Prashant kidnapped, and later he tells Sol to bump off Prashant. There is a three-way fight among them. Pratyush arrives upon the scene and witnesses two more murders. A dying Prashant advises Pratyush to go to Sonali at the earliest. In the meantime, the weird old man of 88 Antop Hill, Murli, recalls that he had seen Pratyush and follows him to blackmail him. When Pratyush asks him to get lost, he goes to Sonali's house and tries to blackmail her. Aslam Durrani visits Pratyush and, seeing him, thinks he has probably committed the crime, saying that Pratyush would better leave the city and that he wouldn't want anything to do with the latter anymore.
Pratyush contacts the cops but a dumbwitted cop sternly asks him to surrender, as the police have found the murder weapon and a blood stained shirt, with Pratyush's diary stating 88 Antop Hill on the fateful date at his house. Pratyush panics and goes to Sonali to convey Prashant's message to her. She does not listen to what he says. Here Menon and the good inspector show up as well. At this point the crux arises — the inspector says that he has found out that Sonali is actually "Sonali Shah", and she was married already to the deceased Neeraj Shah; it was Sonali who killed him because he wouldn't give her a divorce to marry Menon. He also says that Neeraj's house was ransacked by Sonali to find the marriage certificate. At this point, Arvind goes to the fridge and finds Murli Mansukhani lying stabbed in it! The truth is then out. It is known that Sonali murdered Neeraj and hid his corpse in the fridge and murdered Murli because he opened the fridge out of curiosity and found Neeraj's corpse. Arvind also reveals that Sonali killed Teesta. Sonali says it was because Teesta knew about her marriage with Neeraj, and used to blackmail her, saying she will make it known to Menon. It was Sonali who had followed Pratyush and Teesata on the fateful night back to 88 Antop Hill, secretly climbed into Teesta's bedroom and slit her throat. She further followed Pratyush and leaves the knife in his house to implicate him. It is then revealed that Menon has murdered Prashant, at which Sonali is shocked. At this point, Menon makes a last effort to save himself and Sonali. He tries to bribe Arvind with 10 million, saying that he must arrest poor Pratyush on charges of all the murders. To this, Arvind agrees and shoots Pratyush in the shoulder. But the wounded Pratyush releases gas from the cylinder nearby and threatens to light his cigarette lighter. While he grabs Arvind's phone and tries to call police, Menon attacks him and stabs him on the sofa, and Arvind quickly turns out the gas. But the wounded Pratyush pulls out Menon's revolver, kicks him off and shoots him through a cushion. At this point, a dumbfounded Sonali picks up a pistol and threatens to kill Pratyush. Arvind tells her not to, but she pulls the trigger — only to find that the gun is empty. Arvind then apologizes to Pratyush, saying he had to wound the latter or else Menon would've killed Pratyush. Sonali is then arrested on charges of multiple homicide and attempt to kill Pratyush. The film ends with the inspector relieving Pratyush of all charges in the case and requesting him to take care of a pet dog. Pratyush's wife and child return. [edit]Cast Rahul Dev ...

This is an offbeat sort of movie. Rahul Dev has the best part and the best one-liners. The photographic effects are slick but a bit over-the-top in some cases. The plot spawns a convoluted set of relationships but then all the people are killed off, and this leads to a dry and bland revelation at the end.

Ele chega em casa na noite de seu aniversário, porque ele teve que consolar um velho colega de faculdade sobre seus problemas conjugais. Seus próprios problemas conjugais são agravados quando sua esposa Antara (Suchitra Pillai) começa uma grande briga e deixa sua casa com sua filha Saanjh. Pratyush está chateado com isso. Seu colega Aslam Durrani (Harsh Khurana) capta isso e sugere uma exótica dançarina Teesta (Shweta Menon). Pratyush está muito chateado de estar interessado. Mas Aslam é determinada, mais tarde naquela noite ele chama Pratyush e finge como se alguns bandidos estão prestes a matá-lo. Ele pede Pratyush para vir imediatamente para um determinado local. Essa localização é de 88 Antop Colina. Pratyush chega. 88 Antop Hill é uma casa de recuperação ocupado principalmente por dançarinas exóticas e acompanhantes. Pratyush entra no apartamento Aslam havia mencionado, é o covil do Teesta. Ela tenta seduzi-lo, mas ele se recusa seus avanços. Ao seu pedido, ele a leva para o clube Moksha e compra-lhe uma bebida. (Ele não bebe.) Ela observa que o barman Sol (Rahul Panday) conhece todos os segredos dela. Ao sair do bar, seu carro é atacado por um homem aparentemente bêbado, que parece saber Teesta. Teesta insta Pratyush sair rapidamente. Quando ele a leva de volta para casa, ele percebe que as chaves do carro estão em falta. Ele espera que ela olhe para eles. Quando Teesta entra em seu quarto, ela é misteriosamente assassinada. Ela tropeça nos braços do Pratyush, fatalmente esfaqueado, e desmaia. Assustado e confuso, Pratyush deixa imediatamente. Um dos vizinhos, um estranho e em-e-off velho companheiro senil chamado Murli Mansukhani (Shauket Baig) vê-lo sair.
Quando os policiais começam a investigar, eles descobrem que Teesta teve um companheiro de quarto Sonali (Jasmine) e que Sonali está noiva de um empresário proeminente, KK Menon (Sanjay Singh). O oficial de investigação, eo herói do filme, o inspetor Arvind Khanvilkar (Rahul Dev), inicia seu trabalho. O principal suspeito é um Pratyush inconsciente, porque ele era a última pessoa a ver Teesta vivo. Um enredo um tanto complicado evolui. Sonali tem vários segredos e um bom-para-nada irmão Prashant (Subrotto Dutta). Teesta estava de alguma forma ligado ao passado sombrio de Sonali. Menon sabe disso e queria acabar com tudo, inclusive Prashant. Ele Prashant seqüestrado, e mais tarde ele diz Sol para matar Prashant. Há uma luta de três vias entre eles. Pratyush chega em cena e testemunhas dois assassinatos mais. A Prashant morrendo aconselha Pratyush para ir para Sonali, no mínimo. Enquanto isso, o homem estranho velho de 88 Antop Hill, Murli, lembra que ele tinha visto Pratyush e segue-o para chantageá-lo. Quando Pratyush pede para ele se perder, ele vai para a casa de Sonali e tenta chantageá-la. Aslam Durrani visita Pratyush e, ao vê-lo, acha que ele foi provavelmente cometido o crime, dizendo que seria melhor Pratyush deixar a cidade e que ele não quer ter nada a ver com o último mais. Contatos Pratyush os policiais, mas um policial dumbwitted severamente pede-lhe para se render, como a polícia ter encontrado a arma do crime e uma camisa manchada de sangue, com o diário Pratyush declarando 88 Colina Antop na data fatídica em sua casa. Pratyush entra em pânico e vai para Sonali para transmitir a mensagem Prashant para ela. Ela não ouve o que ele diz. Aqui Menon eo inspetor bom mostrar-se tão bem.
Neste ponto, surge o ponto crucial - o inspector diz que ele descobriu que Sonali é realmente "Shah Sonali", e ela já foi casada com o Shah Neeraj falecido, era Sonali que matou ele porque ele não lhe daria o divórcio casar Menon. Ele também diz que a casa Neeraj foi saqueada por Sonali para encontrar a certidão de casamento. Neste ponto, Arvind vai para a geladeira e encontra Murli Mansukhani mentindo esfaqueado na mesma! A verdade é que, em seguida, para fora. Sabe-se que Sonali assassinado Neeraj e escondeu o cadáver na geladeira e assassinado Murli porque ele abriu a geladeira por curiosidade e encontrou o cadáver de Neeraj. Arvind também revela que matou Sonali Teesta. Sonali diz que foi porque Teesta sabia sobre seu casamento com Neeraj, e usado para chantageá-la, dizendo que ela vai torná-la conhecida Menon. Foi Sonali que tinha seguido Pratyush e Teesata na fatídica noite de volta a 88 Colina Antop, secretamente subiu para o quarto Teesta e cortado sua garganta. Ela ainda seguido Pratyush e deixa a faca em sua casa de implicá-lo. É então revelado que Menon foi assassinado Prashant, em que Sonali fica chocado. Neste ponto, Menon faz um último esforço para salvar a si mesmo e Sonali. Ele tenta subornar Arvind com 10 milhões, dizendo que ele deve prender Pratyush pobres sob a acusação de todos os assassinatos. Para isso, Arvind concorda e dispara Pratyush no ombro. Mas o Pratyush feridos libera o gás a partir da próxima cilindro e ameaça acender seu isqueiro. Enquanto ele pega telefone Arvind e tenta chamar a polícia, Menon ataca e esfaqueia no sofá, e Arvind rapidamente se transforma o gás. Mas o Pratyush feridos puxa revólver Menon, a chuta-lo e atira-lo através de uma almofada. Neste ponto, um Sonali dumbfounded pega uma pistola e ameaça matar Pratyush. Arvind lhe diz que não, mas ela puxa o gatilho - apenas para descobrir que a arma está vazia. Arvind então pede desculpas a Pratyush, dizendo que ele tinha que ferir o último ou então Menon teria matado Pratyush. Sonali é, então, preso sob a acusação de homicídio múltiplo e tentativa de matar Pratyush. O filme termina com o inspetor aliviar Pratyush de todas as acusações no caso e pedindo-lhe para cuidar de um cão de estimação. Pratyush esposa e retorno criança. [Editar] Elenco Rahul Dev ... Inspector Arvind Khanvilkar Atul Kulkarni ... Pratyush Shelar Shweta Menon ... Teesta Jasmine ... Sonali Shauket Baig ... Murli Mansukhani [Editar] Notas Este é um tipo excêntrico de filme. Rahul Dev tem a melhor parte eo melhor one-liners. Os efeitos fotográficos são lisos, mas um pouco over-the-top em alguns casos. O enredo gera um conjunto complicado de relacionamentos, mas, em seguida, todas as pessoas são mortas fora, e isso leva a uma revelação seca e sem graça no final.

Karthik (Farhan Akhtar) is an introvert who lacks confidence and feels trapped in his average job at a construction company. He is continuously troubled by an incident from his childhood: His older brother, Kumar, used to torture him, but whenever he complained to his parents, they did not believe him. One day, Kumar took Karthik to a well and tried to throw him in it, but Karthik escaped. Kumar accidentally fell inside the well and died. Karthik has thought himself responsible for his brother's death ever since. Shonali Mukherjee (Deepika Padukone) is a co-worker at Karthik's company, whom Karthik is secretly in love with, though she remains unaware of his existence, much less his feelings. After being derided by his boss yet again, Karthik figures his life can’t get any better and decides to commit suicide. Just as he is about to, a stranger with the same, exact voice as him calls and says that he is also Karthik, convincing him that he has the ability to change his life. These phone calls become Karthik's life guide. His chats take place every morning at 5:00 a.m. and the caller provides advice on Karthik's problems, guiding him to become a successful man, win Shonali's heart, and bring color to his otherwise dreary life. However, when Karthik tells Shonali and his psychiatrist about the phone calls, despite being warned not to, the mysterious caller gets angry and tells Karthik that if he could bring him up, he could also throw him down. As per his word, things start going downhill. Karthik's boss throws him out and Shonali leaves him. Karthik decides that if he goes somewhere he does not know, then the caller wouldn't know where he is either and stop calling him. Karthik travels to an unknown place, takes shelter in a small hotel, and asks the receptionist to remove the telephone and room number plate. After a few months, Karthik is comfortably living in Cochin with a decent job. His life is back to normal except for the fact that he refuses to have a phone line. Upon his boss's request, he is forced to purchase a landline. He goes to great lengths to ensure that he himself is unaware of the phone number. However, one day at exactly 5 a.m, he receives a call from the mysterious caller, who threatens to kill him. Meanwhile, Shonali is contacted by Dr. Kapadia, who reveals the twist: Karthik is actually schizophrenic. He has an alter-ego that is more assertive and advises him on how to live life. All this time, the strange caller was Karthik himself. He has been dealing with this condition from a young age, when he created a fake brother named Kumar. Karthik's phone has the capacity to record messages and act as a playback feature at a certain time. Karthik would wake up in the middle of the night, leave himself messages as his alter ego, and return to sleep, where he would awake once again at 5am to take his own calls. Eventually, Karthik becomes so disturbed that he attempts to commit suicide again. Shonali, realizing the truth, arrives at the right time to save him. They reconcile and she stands by him, helping him with his condition. After a few months, Karthik is in the process of dealing with his schizophrenia and lives a happy and rehabilitated life with Shonali by his side.

A resident of Mumbai, his only interest is to have fun and spend his father's money. Thus, he spends little time at college and is not prepared for the final exams. His father, not being aware of this fact, tells Sid it is time to join his company, which Sid reluctantly does only after his father tempts him with the promise of a new car. Sid meets Aisha (Konkona Sen Sharma), an aspiring writer. On their first meeting, they go out on a walk along the streets of Bombay. Sid shows her the city and takes her by the sea. They strike a chord instantly and a friendship ensues. Sid helps her to find and furnish her own apartment. She also lands a job with Mumbai Beat, (based on Time Out! Mumbai)[1] a hip magazine run by the handsome editor-in-chief Kabir (Rahul Khanna). On the eve of her 27th birthday, Aisha invites Sid to her place. When Sid tentatively explores moving their relationship beyond friendship, he finds that Aisha perceives him as boyish and immature. Despite feeling hurt, he maintains his friendship with her. When the exam results come out, Sid finds that he failed. His failure leads to an intense family fight that ends with him moving out. With nowhere to go, Sid (who has never been on his own) asks Aisha if he can stay with her. Aisha is initially happy to have the company. Eventually, Sid's bad habits revive themselves, as he leaves her place a mess and throws tantrums. When she finds out he has not eaten all day, Aisha is amused by the fact that Sid cannot cook and does not know how to feed himself. Over time, Sid learns that to care for himself, he has to begin cooking and cleaning. He also realizes he must work, and Aisha helps him become a photography intern at the magazine she works for. Aisha is ecstatic when Kabir selects her article for the magazine and asks her on a date. However, she realizes she does not have much in common with him. She then understands that she is in love with Sid. As Sid begins working, he finds meaning in life. He begins to see for the first time how his behavior has hurt his loved ones and that he needs to change his ways. After he is hired as full-time staff and receives his first paycheck, he confronts his father. They reconcile and Sid's father asks him to come home. Sid, who often feels a burden on Aisha, tells her that he won't be dependent on her charity anymore and expects her to be thrilled. He doesn't realize that Aisha has fallen in love with him and thus is furious to hear that he is leaving. His departure is a hostile one. When Sid returns home, he thinks constantly of Aisha, though he does not consider that she might share his feelings, since she told him they can only be friends. When the latest issue of Mumbai Beat arrives, Sid reads Aisha's column and is startled to discover that it is about her feelings for him. As it starts raining, he rushes to meet her at the same beach where they had gone the day they met. Sid expresses his love for her and the two embrace. [edit]Cast Ranbir Kapoor as Siddharth "Sid" Mehra, a spoiled and self-centered college student from Mumbai. According to Ranbir, of all the films that he has done so far, Sid was the toughest character to play. He adds that it might be difficult to believe but he is not at all like Sid in real life.[3] Konkona Sen Sharma as Aisha Banerjee Rahul Khanna as Kabir Chaudhary Anupam Kher as Ram Mehra Shikha Talsania as Laxmi Supriya Pathak as Sarita Namit Das as Rishi Kashmira Shah as Sonia Rahul Pendkalkar Shruti Bapna Kainaz Motivala as Tanya Lathia Natasha Rathod [edit]Release [edit]Box office Wake Up Sid opened well in India and overseas markets.[4][5] Its opening weekend gross was Rs 215 million (Rs 21.5 crore) of which the India gross stood at Rs 170 million (Rs 17 crore).[6] It was number one in the box office during its first and second weeks,[7][8] number four during its third week,[9] and number three during its fourth week.[10] In the United Kingdom, the film collected $165,934, while in the US, the collections stand at $717,977.[11] By its fourth week, it grossed $348,351 in New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Do Knot Disturb also released during the same time, but Wake Up Sid got a larger portion of the audience.[12] After grossing about Rs. 46.72 crore, the film was declared a hit. [edit]Critical reception Wake Up Sid was well received by a number of critics. Subhash K. Jha (film critic and author of The Essential Guide to Bollywood) gave Wake Up Sid a rave review stating that it is, "a triumph on many levels. It takes the protagonist's predictable but yet kinetic voyage into self-realization to a level where the languorous plot exudes a beam of light that cuts right across the radiant narrative [...] The most obtainable component of young Ayan Mukherjee's artless narrative is the remarkable rhythms of the ordinary and the unostentatious in the narrative. All the relationships in the plot are potentially predictable and cliched. Ayan takes the age-old dramatic conflicts of our commercial cinema into quiet supremely understated corridors."[13] Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN gave the film three out of five stars, stating that Wake Up Sid, "has its heart in the right place and it marks the breakout of a bright, shining star who has come into his own so early in his acting career. Watch it, and be awestruck by Ranbir."[14] Taran Adarsh of Bollywood Hungama gave the film four out of five stars as well as a "thumbs up" stating that it is "strongly recommended."[13] Mayank Shekhar of the Hindustan Times gave it 3.5 out of four stars and states, "Wake Up Sid belongs to a sweet genre that, without doubt, flows on from Farhan Akhtar's Dil Chahta Hai: part Hollywood; part Bollywood; mostly coming-of-age; subtly romantic; largely original; authentic in feel; light in weight; English in expression; Hindi in language."[15] Avijit Ghosh of The Times of India gave it three and half out of four stars and suggests that, "Wake Up Sid becomes a sort of template of how GenNow navigate their lives: deal with their own little rebellions, find meaning to their own definitions of independence and handle their own set of mistakes. It feels good when the two friends finally meet in driving rain under the grey skies by the sea. Refreshing and heart-warming, Wake Up Sid really puts you in the mood for love."[16] Noyon Jyoti Parasara of AOL India gave it three and half out of five stars and praised the director saying, "Ayan Mukerji arrives in style and manages to leave his own mark on the film despite having a producer like Karan Johar whose other productions always tend to have his stamp. Wake Up Sid really puts you in the mood for love.
"[17] Joginder Tuteja of the Indo-Asian News Service (IANS) calls the film "flawless" and gave it three and a half stars. He states: "There are five things that make Wake Up Sid a delightful affair. It has a constant flow throughout; no over the top or understated drama; no ultra emotional strangulation of audiences; absolutely no yuppie cool dude act; and last but not the least, this is an original and refreshing story."[18] Rachel Saltz of The New York Times argues that: "With no big production numbers (songs play over montage sequences), a quiet style and credible characters, Wake Up Sid is Bollywood in an indie mood, a film for people like Aisha and Sid: young and educated. It may not be as hip as Bombay Beat, the magazine where the two work, but it shows that Mr. Mukherji is a director to watch."[1] [edit]Controversy On 2 October, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena supporters protested to halt the screening of Wake Up Sid in Mumbai and Pune. The MNS objected the use of the word "Bombay" instead of "Mumbai" in the movie.[19] [edit]Awards 2010: Filmfare Awards Won: Best Debutante Director (Male) - Ayan Mukherjee Won:Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor - Ranbir Kapoor Won:Best Female Playback - Kavita Seth for "Iktara" [20] [edit]Soundtrack The soundtrack has music composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy with lyrics by Javed Akhtar.

          Should you update stats for your SQL Server database?      Cache   Translate Page      

Statistics on database objects are very important to the SQL Server engine optimizing execution plans and running at the most optimal performance.  There is often many times people ask do or do I not need to manually update stats in my database.

The answer to this question is not a simple yes or no.  It truly depends on the activity in your database.  As we all know stats get updated when data changes and meets an internal threshold in the database engine, this work is done automatically.  However if you are supporting extremely large database that do not update data frequently or update enough data those stats will not get updated automatically and will require you to do so manually.

There are also some standard database maintenance items like rebuilding and reorganizing indexes that will update stats too, but only the stats related to those objects.  Many times I have seen the SQL engine not using the most optimized execution plan for a stored procedure because table stats are out of data.

There is a bit of risk when you update stats using the stored proc named “sp_updatestats”.  The update stats stored procedure updates all user generated stats in the database.  You can even specify certain tables to update on, so if you have a logging table that gets used frequently you can specify to update that table only using SP_UpdateStats.  For usability options for SP_Updates please check out the Microsoft doc page on this stored proc using this link – SP_UpdateStats

Keeping stats fresh in databases can resolve a lot of performance problems when execution plans get out of whack.  If you find yourself wondering if your stats our out of data run this query below to pull the timestamp of the last update for stats:

SELECT OBJECT_NAME(object_id) AS [ObjectName]
,[name] AS [StatisticName]
,STATS_DATE([object_id], [stats_id]) AS [StatisticUpdateDate]
FROM sys.stats;

This post is a response to this month’s T-SQL Tuesday #108 prompt by Malathi Mahadevan.  T-SQL Tuesday is a way for the SQL Server community to share ideas about different database and professional topics every month.

This month’s topic asks to share how we learn skills other than SQL Server.


I enjoy learning to do new things; there’s a major sense of accomplishment I feel when I can tell myself, “Wow, I went from knowing almost nothing to being able to have this new skill.”

Over the years I’ve realized I’m pretty consistent in how I go about learning something new, so what follows is my process for learning a new skill.

What I Am Learning

Recently, my non-SQL Server related learning goals have been to learn to use plain old vanilla JavaScript.

In this case I’m not necessarily starting from nothing (I have been writing JavaScript for close to 20 years now…) but previously where it was necessary to use a library like jQuery to get any kind of compatibility and consistency across browsers, the time has finally come where the JavaScript (ECMAScript) standard is mostly implemented correctly in most modern browsers.  No more need for large helper libraries!

And so the appeal here is that if I can ditch the overhead of a large library, my code will be simpler, easier to maintain, and faster to load and execute.

Steps to Learning a New Skill:

1. Commitment

For me, the hardest part to learning a new skill is time management: if I don’t make time for it, it won’t happen on its own.

I think the easiest way to make time to learn a new skill is to incorporate it into a project at work.  By aligning it with your day job, you’re guaranteeing some time to work on it most days.  Yes, critical projects and deadlines do come up where learning has to be set aside temporarily, but if you can find a project that doesn’t have urgent deadlines AND aligns with learning goals, then you’ll be good to go.

For me, learning vanilla JavaScript is a great “at-work” project since I’m already developing a lot of web apps with JavaScript anyway – the main difference is I’ll be using the standard JavaScript functionality instead of working through a library like jQuery.

Now obviously this won’t work in all scenarios: if you want to learn to build drones and you do development work for a chain of grocery stores, you probably can’t figure out a way to align your interest with work (unless of course your company is trying to build out a drone delivery service).

Inthat case, you need to set aside time at home. This essentially comes down to your own discipline and timemanagement.  The key here is that youneed to set up time regularly and set yourself deadlines.  Instead of having the deadline of a workproject to help motivate you to learn, you need to tell yourself “I’mgoing to get this chunk of plastic and copper wiring up in the air by the endof the month” and try to deliver on that goal.

2. Go Cold Turkey

This is the hardest part of kicking any old habit.  Ideally when learning something new, I like to use it exclusively in all scenarios where I can.

This may not always be possible: sometimes there is a deadline you have to meet and trying a new skill that slows you down is not always the best idea.

But even if that’s your scenario, pick at least one project to go completely cold turkey on for learning your new skill.  Going cold turkey on a project will force you to work through the hurdles and actually learn the necessary skills.

Thiscan be challenging.  I have the jQuerysyntax and methods ingrained in my brain from years of use; switching to usingstandard JavaScript is tough because I’m frequently having to look up how to dothings.  But if I picked the rightproject (ie. one without urgent deadlines), then this becomes a fun learningexperience instead of something stressful.

3. Build a Collection of Resources

The internet is awesome: it contains nearly all of the information you could ever want for learning a new skill.  The internet can also be a terrible place for learning a new skills if used incorrectly.

When learning something new, I try to find resources that guide me through a topic.  Whether it’s a book, a website with a structured guide, a video course, or documentation with clear examples, it’s important to find something that will teach you the why as well as the how.  I prefer using something with structure because it helps me learn the fundamentals correctly.

With my JavaScript learning, I have been enjoying the guides and daily newsletter at https://vanillajstoolkit.com/ .  That site also has clear documentation for the most common features.  The “official” documentation (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference) is good to reference too, but can be overwhelming when first starting out.

What I don’t like doing is searching for each question I have on StackOverflow.  Don’t get me wrong, I love StackOverflow, but when learning some brand new skill I don’t think it always provides the best answers.  Sometimes you get good answers, but sometimes you’ll come across answers that, while technically correct, apply to some edge case, old version of a language, etc… that make them less-than-helpful when learning a new skill.

4. Document and Share

As I learn, I document what I learn.  This could be as simple as code snippets that I find myself using all the time, or it could be links to additional helpful resources.

Eventually I like writing up what I’m learning.  Even if no one reads it, summarizing your thoughts and ideas will help clarify and retain them better.  A summarized document or blog post also provides an additional reference for you to use if you need to in the future.

I haven’t been blogging publicly about my JavaScript learning, but I have been taking notes and sharing with individuals who are learning along with me.

5. Rinse and Repeat

That’s it!  On my first pass at learning a new skill I try to finish a small project to get some immediate satisfaction.  I then pick a new project that’s a little bit more ambitious, but still be manageable because I now have some knowledge that I didn’t have before starting my first project.

Baby steps.  A little bit each day (or every other day).  Do it enough times and eventually you find yourself being fully capable of whatever skill you set out to learn.

          SQL Homework – November 2018 – Constraints      Cache   Translate Page      

You’ve created tables before but how about constraints? Constraints allow a finer level of control over what data is allowed into a given field or combination of fields. Basically, you are putting in some form of business logic. The benefit is that this logic remains in place regardless of how the data is added to the table(s). So, not just when it’s added via an application or given import process. You don’t want to add too much business logic to your database (IMO) but constraints are a pretty lightweight.

There are a bunch of different types of constraints. In order to try out all of them, you’ll need to create two tables. Here is the information you’ll need to create the tables, and the requirements for each. See if you can create each of the different types of constraints required.

-- Employee
Id (Auto incrementing integer, primary key)
EmployeeId (10 character string, cannot be null, must be unique)
FirstName (Variable length string, cannot be null)
LastName (Variable length string, cannot be null)
EmploymentStatus (Variable length string, cannot be null, 
		Can only contain 'Employed', 'Not employed'
		defaults to 'Employed')

-- Dependent
Id (Auto incrementing integer, primary key)
EmployeeId (Value must exist in the Employee table. 
		Can not be null)
FirstName (Variable length string, cannot be null)
LastName (Variable length string, cannot be null)

Now, if you want to get really fancy have the LastName of the Dependent default to the last name of the referenced Employee. Hint: This will require going beyond constraints.

To “pass” all you have to do is get the tables created with the requirements in place. However, for extra credit, try doing this once by creating the tables, then adding the constraints after the fact. Then drop and recreate the tables, but this time create the tables and add the constraints in the same command.


          Filtered Indexes in SQL Server      Cache   Translate Page      
(Be sure to checkout the FREE SQLpassion Performance Tuning Training Plan - you get a weekly email packed with all the essential knowledge you need to know about performance tuning on SQL Server.)

Today I want to talk about a specific kind of index in SQL Server: Filtered Indexes, which were introduced back with SQL Server 2008 – so already very long time ago. A Filtered Index is a traditional Non-Clustered Index, which includes a Filter Predicate that restricts the rows that are indexes in that specific index.

Advantages of Filtered Indexes

Let’s start now by looking at the advantages of Filtered Indexes, and where they can be beneficial. Let’s have a look at the column PurchaseOrderNumber of the table Sales.SalesOrderHeader of the AdventureWorks2014 database. As you can see from the following T-SQL query, there are a lot of NULL values in that column. In my case 27659 records out of 31465 records have a NULL value.

SELECT COUNT(*), COUNT(PurchaseOrderNumber) FROM Sales.SalesOrderHeader
GO

In the next step I create a Covering Non-Clustered Index for a specific query that I want to speed up.

-- Create a supporting Non-Clustered Index for the query
CREATE NONCLUSTERED INDEX idxTest 
ON Sales.SalesOrderHeader(PurchaseOrderNumber, SalesPersonID) 
INCLUDE (OrderDate, ShipDate)
GO

-- When we execute the query, SQL Server can use the previous created
-- Non-Clustered Index, but we have indexed a huge amount of NULL values that
-- we don't request from this query...
SELECT
	PurchaseOrderNumber,
	OrderDate,
	ShipDate,
	SalesPersonID
FROM Sales.SalesOrderHeader
WHERE PurchaseOrderNumber LIKE 'PO6%'
AND SalesPersonID IS NOT NULL
GO

When you run the query, you can see in the Execution Plan that the Non-Clustered Index is referenced by the Query Optimizer.

The Filtered Non-Clustered Index was chosen in the Execution Plan

When we check the size of the index through the Dynamic Management Function (DMF) sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats, you can see that the Non-Clustered Index consists of 132 pages: 1 index root page, and 131 pages in the leaf level.

-- The previous created Non-Clustered Index has 132 pages (1 + 131)
SELECT * FROM sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats
(
	DB_ID('AdventureWorks2014'),
	OBJECT_ID('Sales.SalesOrderHeader'),
	NULL,
	NULL,
	'DETAILED'
)
WHERE index_id = (SELECT index_id FROM sys.indexes WHERE name = 'idxTest')
GO

To make now the index structure more efficient, you can also create a Filtered Non-Clustered Index. When you think back to our query, we only request column values with a Non-NULL value in the column PurchaseOrderNumber. Therefore we can just filter the NULL values out from the index structure. So let’s recreate now the Non-Clustered Index as a Filtered Non-Clustered Index.

-- Recreate the Non-Clustered Index as a Filtered Index and filter out the NULL values
CREATE NONCLUSTERED INDEX idxTest 
ON Sales.SalesOrderHeader(PurchaseOrderNumber, SalesPersonID) 
INCLUDE (OrderDate, ShipDate)
WHERE PurchaseOrderNumber IS NOT NULL AND SalesPersonID IS NOT NULL
WITH (DROP_EXISTING = ON)
GO

When we check now again the index size through the DMF sys.dm_db_index_physical_stats, you will see now that the Filtered Non-Clustered Index consists of only 29 pages: 1 index root page, and only 28 pages in the leaf level.

In our case the query performance does’t get better, but you have created a much smaller index, and therefore you introduce less overhead in your database. Your Index Reorganize and Index Rebuild operations will be much faster, because they are dealing with a smaller index structure.

Disadvantages of Filtered Indexes

By now you know the advantages of Filtered Indexes in SQL Server. Let’s talk now about the disadvantages. Yes, there are also disadvantages! There are always some pro’s and con’s about everything. Like in real life!

Let’s work now with parameterized T-SQL statements. In my case I create a simple Stored Procedure that accepts a @PurchaseOrderNumber parameter.

CREATE PROCEDURE RetrieveData
(
	@PurchaseOrderNumber NVARCHAR(25)
)
AS
BEGIN
	SELECT
		PurchaseOrderNumber,
		OrderDate,
		ShipDate,
		SalesPersonID
	FROM Sales.SalesOrderHeader
	WHERE PurchaseOrderNumber = @PurchaseOrderNumber
END
GO

But when you execute now the Stored Procedure and you check the Execution Plan, you will see that the Query Optimizer hasn’t chosen the Filtered Index. You are scanning the whole Clustered Index of the table Sales.SalesOrderHeader.

The Filtered Non-Clustered Index was not chosen in the Execution Plan

Why is the Query Optimizer not referencing the Filtered Non-Clustered Index? Because it’s not safe! Imagine that initially the Filtered Index is referenced in the Execution Plan. That Execution Plan get’s cached in the Plan Cache. When you now execute the Stored Procedure again with a different parameter value, SQL Server can reuse the already cached Execution Plan from the Plan Cache.

But what happens if you specifiy a NULL value as input parameter value? Then the cached plan wouldn’t return you a result, because the Filtered Non-Clustered Index doesn’t know anything about the NULL values. So the query result would be nothing, which is wrong! And therefore the Query Optimizer can’t reference a Filtered Index in a parameterized T-SQL statement!

Summary

Filtered Non-Clustered Indexes are great – as long as you know their limitations. Normally parameterized T-SQL statements are great, because you don’t pollute the Plan Cache with Adhoc queries. But in combination with Filtered Non-Clustered Indexes in SQL Server they are somehow counterproductive. So please keep that in mind when you work on your indexing strategy.

Thanks for your time,

-Klaus


          Failed Installation of SQL Server Cumulative Updates Debugged      Cache   Translate Page      

Background

Our customer has recently experienced an issue during the installation of the latest cumulative updates in their SQL Server environment. Instances for one specific application ended in a crashed state. The update process was upgrading SQL Server 2017 from CU6 to CU9. The error was occurring during the phase when databases are upgraded via update scripts (which follows after the installation of binary files and SQL Server start).

Inside an errorlog we found that the patch process failed due to an error inside a sp_vupgrade_replication procedure:

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

It was strange, because a replication was not enabled on any affected instances/databases. We wanted to confirm our suspicion that only these user databases are causing troubles, so we put them into an offline state and rollbacked & reinstalled CU again. As long as they remained offline when the upgrade script was running, everything went smoothly! This means that we have successfully isolated the problem which we could debug.

Root cause analysis

To investigate this issue further we rolled back patches one more time and enabled trace flag 902 in startup options of SQL Server. This TF bypasses execution of database upgrade scripts and allows us to run them manually later. Before we did that, we had created an extended event session to investigate what could possibly go wrong:

CREATE EVENT SESSION [upgrade] ON SERVER
ADD EVENT sqlserver.error_reported,
ADD EVENT sqlserver.errorlog_written,
ADD EVENT sqlserver.sp_statement_completed,
ADD EVENT sqlserver.sp_statement_starting
(
WHERE (
  [sqlserver].[like_i_sql_unicode_string]([sqlserver].[sql_text],
  N’%MSreplication_subscriptions%’))),
ADD EVENT sqlserver.sql_batch_completed,
ADD EVENT sqlserver.sql_statement_completed
(SET collect_statement=(1)
)
ADD TARGET package0.event_file(SET filename=N’upgrade’,max_file_size=(5))
GO

The upgrade scripts failed even when run manually, which was not a surprise. Fortunately, this time we were able to catch some interesting data in XE session where we found the exact same error as in an errorlog:

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

The last command which was run a few microseconds before was a breakthrough. The statement was looking for the existence of objects MSreplication_subscriptons and MSsubscriptions_agents.

#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Why a logical disjunction was used inside an IF EXISTS condition is a mystery.

IF EXISTS (SELECT FROM sys.objects WHERE name ‘MSreplication_subscriptions’ )
or 
EXISTS
(SELECT FROM sys.objects WHERE name ‘MSsubscription_agents’)

It surprises me how a query like this can get through the code review in Microsoft but it is what it is ??. We have checked that just one tested object existed. Unfortunately, the script was working with both in later code and therefore it errored and the whole patch process failed.

Resolution

The table, which caused trouble in our case, was MSsubscription_agents. It stores some information about replication subscribers.#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

As it showed up, the database was part of SQL Server Replication topology in the past and even though this feature was removed correctly, somebody forgot to delete information about subscribers.

When we have manually run a procedure sys.sp_subscription_cleanup for all forgotten subscribers,

EXEC sys.sp_subscription_cleanup @publisher ‘xxxxxxxxxxx’, @publisher_db ‘xxxxxxxxxxx’

the object MSsubscription_agents disappeared and we could repeat the installation of CU. This time it went smoothly.

The key takeaway for the customer was to review a process how replications were removed instances. From the point of view of a supporting company, we appreciate the ability to use a TF902 which can help us to detect the errors in upgrade script.

It’s also important to mention that the error was most likely not connected only to SQL Server 2017 CU9. This particular database was migrated from SQL Server 2008 R2 recently and this was the first round of patching on top of the 2017 version. So it could appear with earlier (and possibly later) versions of CU as well.

          Ted Cruz is still using a blacklisted Cambridge Analytica app developer      Cache   Translate Page      

In his re-election campaign’s final hours, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is still deploying a smartphone app created by a software team at the heart of the Cambridge Analytica controversy.

The app, Cruz Crew, was developed by AggregateIQ, a small Canadian data firm that was for years the lead developer used by the infamous data analytics consultancy that made headlines last spring for harvesting user data on millions of unsuspecting Facebook users while working for the Trump campaign. Since that firm’s demise, AggregateIQ has become one focus of an international investigation into alleged data misdeeds during the 2016 Brexit campaign, and is the first company to be targeted by regulators under Europe’s new data privacy law.

Both Cruz Crew as well as an app for Cruz’s presidential campaign in 2016 share an interconnected history of developers and clients linked to Cambridge Analytica, its British affiliate SCL Elections, and architects of the Republican Party’s recent digital efforts. Part of a group of apps presented as walled-garden social networks for political supporters, the software helps campaigns collect voter data and microtarget messages.

In April, Facebook announced it had suspended AggregateIQ over its possible improper access to the data of millions of Facebook users. But over a dozen apps made by AggregateIQ remained connected to Facebook’s platform until May and June, when Facebook belatedly took action against them.

A Facebook spokesperson told Fast Company that it was still investigating AIQ’s possible misuse of data, amid an ongoing investigation by Canadian prosecutors. The Cruz campaign did not respond to requests for comment.

David Carroll, a professor at Parsons School of Design at the New School in New York, who has brought a legal challenge against SCL and Cambridge Analytica for release of his voter data profile, said Cruz’s continued relationships with AggregateIQ highlighted problems with the use of data by a growing ecosystem of partisan election apps and databases. The risks are particularly high, he said, when the vendors are combining data from multiple sources and processing Americans’ data overseas.

“Despite the Cambridge Analytica fiasco, it seems that the Republican data machine is still a shadowy network that includes international operators, tangled up with vendors under intense scrutiny for unlawful conduct in multiple jurisdictions,” he said. “I don’t understand why Republicans don’t insist on working with domestic tech vendors and technologists who are U.S. citizens.”

The Cruz-Cambridge Analytica connection

During the 2016 race, a U.S.-based software firm named Political Social Media, but better known as uCampaign, was credited as developer and publisher for the official “Ted Cruz 2016” presidential primary app. At the time, the app achieved modest notoriety as a somewhat novel data collection tool– appearing alongside Cambridge Analytica under headlines like, “Cruz App Data Collection Helps Campaign Read Minds of Voters”–with the app colloquially referred to in the press as “Cruz Crew.”

As in 2016, the 2018 Cruz re-election campaign relies on constant polling and voter modeling to understand and target mainstream conservatives in Texas. Cruz and his Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke, who has repeatedly brought up Cambridge Analytica during the campaign and has refused to use big data analytics, have both heavily invested in social media. The media blitz hasn’t been cheap: According to data from the Center for Responsive Politics, the candidates in the 2018 Texas Senate race have set the all-time record for most money spent in any U.S. Senate election.

As part of its digital push, the Cruz campaign rolled out a new app, officially named “Cruz Crew,” which awards points to users for tweeting pro-Cruz messages, volunteering, and taking part in other campaign activities. On the app’s pages in the Google and Apple stores, AggregateIQ is not mentioned, but its name is visible as the developer in the app URL and in internal code. The app’s publisher is listed as the political marketing agency WPA Intelligence, or WPAi.

Chris Wilson, WPAi’s founder and chief executive, is a veteran GOP pollster who previously worked for George W. Bush and Karl Rove. WPAi’s past campaign successes include a trio of high profile Tea Party-cum-Freedom Caucus sympathizer senators: Cruz, Mike Lee (R-UT), and Ron Johnson (R-WI). By far, however, Cruz has been WPA’s biggest political client in the U.S. Between his bids for senator and president, Cruz campaign committees have paid out over $4.3 million to Chris Wilson’s firm since 2011.

As the director of research, analytics and digital strategy for Cruz’s 2016 presidential campaign, Wilson oversaw a large data team that included Rebekah Mercer and Steve Bannon’s Cambridge Analytica. Rebekah’s father, Robert Mercer, footed the $5.8 million bill for Cambridge Analytica by doubling that amount in donations.

Wilson and the Cruz team have repeatedly said that Cambridge Analytica represented to the campaign that all of the data it had was legally obtained. They also claimed that Cambridge did not deliver the results expected of them, neither through their much-discussed psychographics work nor through an important piece of software called Ripon.

In schematics, Ripon was drawn up as an all-in-one campaign solution to manage voter data collection, ad targeting, and street canvassing. According to files retrieved by computer security analyst Chris Vickery, Ripon was intended to tap into something called “the Database of Truth.” Documents revealed that the Truth project “integrates, obtains, and normalizes data from disparate sources,” beginning with the Republican National Committee’s Data Trust database, combined “with state voter files, consumer data, third-party data providers, historical WPA survey, and projects and customer data.”

Despite being a deliverable promised by Cambridge Analytica, the work on Ripon was outsourced to AggregateIQ. More recently, WPAi hired the firm to develop and manage the software for Cruz Crew, along with its two other currently available apps: one for Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s re-election campaign, and one for Osnova, a Ukrainian political party dedicated to the long-shot presidential aspirations of its oligarch founder, Serhiy Taruta.

In the 2018 race, WPAi and the Cruz campaign have said Cruz’s effort isn’t using new Cambridge Analytica-style “psychographic” modeling, but it is using social media data for specific targeting, and relying on previous campaign data. “We use social data to ID voter groups in our core universes,” WPA’s Chris Wilson previously told Fast Company. “A lot of those are 2016 voters who we know are persuaded by specific messages.”

Cruz Crew and TedCruz.org currently share a privacy policy has barely changed since late 2015, when Cambridge Analytica and uCampaign were Cruz vendors. In both cases, the policy states that the campaign may “access, collect, and store personal information about other people that is available to us through your contact list,” match the info to data from other sources, and “keep track of your device’s geographic location.”

Beyond the existing campaign app, however, AIQ’s current involvement in the Cruz campaign’s data management and software development is unknown. A report by the New York Times last month found that when users shared their friends’ contact information with the Cruz app, that data was still being sent to AggregateIQ domains.

Wilson told the Times that his company, not AggregateIQ, received and controlled app users’ information. Representatives for AggregateIQ did not immediately respond to a request for comment, and WPAi did not respond to questions about the data firm.

Intelligence quotient

AIQ, founded in 2013 in Victoria, British Columbia, is currently under investigation in the U.K. and its homebase of Canada for electoral impropriety during the Brexit Leave campaign. The company’s name has come up repeatedly in parliamentary testimony for its alleged campaign finance and data protection misdeeds in connection with the parent company of Cambridge Analytica.

“Concerns have been raised about the closeness of the two organizations including suggestions that AIQ, [SCL Elections, and Cambridge Analytica] were, in effect, one and the same entity,” stated a recent report by the U.K.’s Information Commissioner’s Office.

In testimony to a U.K. parliamentary committee, former Cambridge Analytica executive Brittany Kaiser said that AggregateIQ was the exclusive digital and data engineering partner of SCL, the British parent affiliate of Analytica.

“They would build our software, such as a platform that we designed for Senator Ted Cruz’s campaign,” she said. “That was meant to collect data for canvassing individuals who would go door-to-door collecting and hygiening data of individuals in those households. We also had no internal digital capacity at the time, so we did not actually undertake any of our digital campaigns. That was done exclusively through AggregateIQ.”

AIQ founders Zack Massingham and Jeff Silvester had been brought into the fold a year prior by their friend Christopher Wylie, then an SCL employee, who blew the whistle on the firm’s practices earlier this year. According to Wylie, the founders registered their company in their hometown of Victoria as a result of an SCL contract, which subsequently led to political work in the Caribbean.

After the two firms first made contact in August 2013, while SCL was performing its first American political work in the Virginia gubernatorial race, AIQ designed solutions for deployment in campaigns under SCL’s supervision in Trinidad and Tobago. Part of the intent, according to records obtained by the Globe and Mail, was to harvest the internet histories of up to 1.3 million civilians in order to more accurately model their psychographics for message targeting.

In December 2013, an SCL employee proposed requesting the data from the country’s internet provider by posing as academic researchers, while seeking to tie internet addresses to billing addresses, without naming customers. In response, AIQ CEO Massingham replied by email that he could use every bit of data they could get. “If the billing addresses are obfuscated, we’ll have a difficult time relating things back to a real person or household,” he wrote. It remains unknown if that data was obtained.

The primary work AIQ performed was to design software that could be used to motivate volunteers, canvassers, and voters. This software concept was repeated for multiple clients, including Petronas, an oil company that sought to influence voters in Malaysia.

AggregateIQ’s work across the pond

During the U.K.’s Brexit campaign in 2016, Vote Leave hired AIQ to place online ads, with AIQ paying for all 1,034 Facebook ads run by the campaign. AIQ’s services were also retained to develop and administer a piece of software that Vote Leave executives, including chief technology officer and former SCL employee Thomas Borwick, later credited with a large portion of the campaign’s success.

Vote Leave campaign director Dominic Cummings wrote an extensive blog post about the project, called the Voter Intention Collection System (VICS).

“One of our central ideas was that the campaign had to do things in the field of data that have never been done before,” Cummings wrote. “This included a) integrating data from social media, online advertising, websites, apps, canvassing, direct mail, polls, online fundraising, activist feedback . . . and b) having experts in physics and machine learning do proper data science in the way only they can, i.e. far beyond the normal skills applied in political campaigns.”

As the voter-facing front end for the Leave campaign data team, uCampaign was brought in and paid by AIQ to deliver the smartphone apps that helped to gather users’ cell numbers, email addresses, phone book contacts, and Facebook IDs for integration, exactly as it had done during the previous months for the Cruz 2016 campaign. Just as in that case, the app collected voter information for use in AIQ tools.

“We could only do this properly if we had proper canvassing software,” Cummings wrote. “We built it partly in-house and partly using an external engineer who we sat in our office for months.”

AIQ’s Zach Massingham repeatedly flew to the U.K. as his company was paid hundred of thousands of pounds for its Vote Leave work in 2016 after a series of transactions between several campaigns that Canadian officials have questioned as “money laundering” and British authorities are investigating as criminal offenses. Nonetheless, after the referendum, Cummings released an open-source version of VICS code on Github for future micro-targeters to use.

In early 2018, one of Vote Leave and SCL vet Thomas Borwick’s handful of data firms, Kanto, was hired to do canvassing and social media work during the Irish abortion referendum. Anti-abortion activist groups also contracted uCampaign to build two separate apps, which alarmed campaign finance and privacy watchdogs and led to a ban on internet advertising.

As with uCampaign, which has also made apps for the likes of Donald Trump and the NRA, AIQ’s smartphone apps were designed to gather information via Facebook Login, a tool offered by Facebook to streamline user registration across the internet. Though Facebook tightened some restrictions this year as a direct response to the Analytica flare-up, Login has allowed third-party developers to gain access to a wide range of Facebook account information about registered users.

As part of its investigation into Cambridge Analytica and its affiliates, on April 7, Facebook said that it had suspended AIQ, effectively ending its ability to deploy Facebook Login. However, security researcher Chris Vickery discovered that AIQ’s access to the Facebook platform was still active as of May 17. Additionally, he found, AIQ had already collected info on nearly 800,000 Facebook account IDs in a database, with many matched to addresses and phone numbers. Facebook removed more AIQ apps two weeks later, but it was not until June 19 that the Facebook Login feature was removed from the apps for Cruz, Osnova, and Abbott.

In written testimony to Parliament, AIQ chief technology officer Jeff Silvester, who visited British prime minister Theresa May’s office with Massingham in the weeks after the Brexit vote, explained the history of the relationship between SCL and AIQ, which began in late 2013.

After building a “customer relationship management (CRM) tool” for SCL in Trinidad and Tobago, AIQ created “an entirely new CRM tool” for the 2014 U.S. midterm elections. “SCL called the tool Ripon,” Silvester wrote. AIQ was then required to transfer all software rights to SCL before working “with SCL on similar software development, online advertising, and website development” in support of Cambridge Analytica’s work for the Ted Cruz 2016 campaign.

A referral from “an acquaintance who was working with Vote Leave” led to AIQ being hired by Vote Leave in April 2016, the day before the campaign was designated as the official Leave organization.

This past May, after questioning the legality of AggregateIQ founder Zach Massingham’s work on British soil while developing VICS, parliamentary committee chair Damian Collins asked Silvester about AIQ’s recent work for WPAi.

Silvester explained, “They sell their software that we create for them to whomever they like, and we just simply support that work.”

In March, WPAi CEO Chris Wilson told Gizmodo that he had almost no knowledge of the controversy surrounding AIQ, despite their work for the Cruz 2016 campaign. “I would never work with a firm that I felt had done something illegal or even unethical,” he said. The firm’s work for WPA was the result of a competitive bidding process, he said, and AIQ “offered us the best capabilities for the best price.”

Leaving the nest

In February 2017, a story on the Politico Pro website announced Archie, WPA Intelligence’s new piece of software for 2018 campaigns. The software goes by a nickname used by Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s political team, referring to Archimedes, the Greek mathematician who said, “Give me a lever and I can move the world.”

“The program allows campaigns to work across all formats and vendors to collect data in one place,” the article said, and campaign staffers “will be able to use the app to generate models, target audiences, cut lists, and produce data visualization tools to make strategic decisions.”

From that description, Archie sounded very much like AIQ’s Ripon and VICS all-in-one campaign solutions. AIQ’s smartphone app for WPAi client Greg Abbott first appeared on Google Play and Apple’s iOS Store three months later, in May 2017.

Archie’s predictive modeling of Texan voters “yielded approximately 4.5 million individual targets for turnout efforts,” according to WPAi. That helped the Abbott campaign win the 2018 Reed award for Best Use of Data Analytics/Machine Learning in Field Program. In attendance at the March ceremony were representatives from Cambridge Analytica, which was nominated for Best Use of Online Targeting for Judicial Campaign.

Three weeks after the Reed awards, Christopher Wylie’s whistleblower account in the Observer were splashed across the world’s front pages. By the following month, SCL and Analytica were claiming bankruptcy, and AIQ’s cofounders were appearing at Canadian Parliament and dealing with its suspension from Facebook as developers.

In June, a week before AIQ’s WPA apps finally removed Facebook Login, Silvester appeared before Canadian Parliament for a second time, where he was admonished by Vice Chair Nathaniel Erskine-Smith, who remarked, “Frankly, the information you have provided is inadequate.” After being threatened with a contempt charge for excusing himself from sworn testimony with a one-line doctor’s note, Massingham later spoke with the committee via audio-only link from his lawyer’s office.

In July, AggregateIQ was served with the U.K.’s first-ever enforcement notice under the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation, known as GDPR. The U.K.’s Information Commissioner’s Office subjected AIQ to millions in fines if it did not “cease processing any personal data of U.K. or EU citizens obtained from U.K. political organizations or otherwise for the purposes of data analytics, political campaigning, or any other advertising purposes.”

After AIQ appealed the order, it was merely mandated to “erase any personal data of individuals in the U.K.,” though it was found to have “processed personal data in a way that the data subjects were not aware of, for purposes which they would not have expected, and without a lawful basis for that processing.”

As Ted Cruz wraps up his campaign, he continues to outsource part of his voter data harvesting to a foreign firm that has been blacklisted by Facebook and British and European regulators. The total data amassed through apps like Cruz Crew and projects like Ripon and Archimedes remains unknown, but they raise concerns that Cruz acknowledged when he launched his presidential campaign at Liberty University in March 2015. “Instead of a government that seizes your emails and your cell phones,” he said, “imagine a federal government that protected the privacy rights of every American.”

          The colors of the midterm elections? Purple, green, and gold      Cache   Translate Page      

Krysten Sinema, a Democrat running in a hotly contested race for Senate in Arizona, sets her name in purple against a golden desert sunrise. Sri Preston Kulkarni, a Democrat running for Congress in Texas, uses a blue lone star bursting into shades of purple and red.

For the most part, this election’s campaign design looked fairly predictable: Nearly 75% of Democrats and and more than half of Republicans used blue as their primary campaign color this year. If you’re a Republican running in a solidly Democratic district, you’re three times more likely to use red as your logo color than your peers in Republican districts. But in general, candidates choose blue–a color strongly associated with America from the beginning, from the color George Washington chose for continental army uniforms to the resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777 describing a flag with white stars against a “blue field representing a new constellation.”

Things get more interesting when you take a closer look at Democratic candidates specifically, though. Democrats were twice as likely to choose purple as their running color compared to Republicans–and three times as likely to choose green.

[Image: courtesy Center for American Politics and Design]
These numbers come from the Center for American Politics and Design, a new group of designers and creative directors including Susan Merriam of Graj + Gustavsen, Kevin Wiesner and Lukas Bentel of Hello Velocity, and Will Denton and Seth Kranzler of Channel Studio. Their analysis of every campaign brand in the midterm election is a glimpse into the visual culture of campaign season–and in some cases, a way to track the evolution of visual identities across the political spectrum.

“Overall, it’s interesting to think about why some of these trends exist,” says Merriam over email. “Given the production value of a lot of these logos, we can guess that many of these design decisions aren’t (necessarily) 100% calculated or engineered to appeal specifically to the audience’s psyche, but that they are symptomatic of the designers’ and candidates’ own.”

One trend the analysis calls out: The similarity between well-known corporate brands and campaign identities. [Image: courtesy Center for American Politics and Design]

Do the purple, gold, and green campaigns of 2018 reflect the simmering conflicts within the Democratic party, with left-leaning candidates renouncing party leadership and centrists attempting to align more closely with Republicans?

But Merriam points out another detail: All of those purple campaign logos, 21 are women, four are men of color, and only one is a white man. “Why do only women or men of color use purple?” Merriam continues. “That would probably be relevant for a larger discussion about the relationship of white masculinity and color theory.”

[Image: courtesy Center for American Politics and Design]

A slew of low-fi campaign logos are highlighted by CAPD’s analysis, including Republican Ron Curtis’s comic sans wordmark set against an American flag graphic. In another election, such details might have been funny–and let’s be honest, they are still kinda funny–but it would be naive to see them as stupid or thoughtless. If the 2016 presidential campaign taught us anything about the power of design in politics, it was that “bad design” can be an incredibly powerful way to broadcast a candidate’s outsider status successfully.

“I hope going forward we can do some more analysis in relation to past elections as well,” Merriam says. “I’m interested to see for example the difference 2016 had on branding overall. As politics becomes increasingly polarized, are there more bold, red candidates with torch iconography? Will we also see more logos like Ocasio-Cortez‘s that try and get away from the traditional color schemes of the Democratic party? I would guess so, and we shall see.”

Red was associated with the Republican party long before Donald Trump slapped on his first MAGA hat–but it hasn’t been the color of the GOP for all that long. The “red state, blue state” trope seems to have emerged alongside contemporary network television coverage of politics within the last two decades. In 2004, The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi traced it to the 2000 election:

The first reference to “red states” and “blue states,” according to a database search of newspapers, magazines and TV news transcripts since 1980, occurred on NBC’s “Today” show about a week before the 2000 election. Matt Lauer and Tim Russert discussed the projected alignment of the states, using a map and a color scheme that had first shown up a few days earlier on NBC’s sister cable network, MSNBC. “So how does [Bush] get those remaining 61 electoral red states, if you will?” Russert asked at one point…

Newspapers began discussing the race in the larger, abstract context of red vs. blue. The deal may have been sealed when Letterman suggested a week after the vote that a compromise would “make George W. Bush president of the red states and Al Gore head of the blue ones.”

In this nightmare of a campaign season, it’s fascinating to remember that the simplistic language we use to talk about national politics–as if it were game between two teams of different jersey colors–was bestowed upon us by network graphics departments that chose those colors for on-air analysis.

           Cardiac arrest survival higher in states with required high school CPR training      Cache   Translate Page      

Required CPR education in high school may lead to higher bystander CPR and cardiac arrest survival rates, according to preliminary research to be presented in Chicago at the American Heart Association's Resuscitation Science Symposium 2018 - an international conference highlighting the best in cardiovascular resuscitation research.

Researchers analyzed data from more than 109,668 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests patients (64 percent men, 49.4 percent white, 19.1 percent African-American, 2.3 percent Hispanic, 2.9 percent other and 26.4 percent unknown) from the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival database or (CARES) - a surveillance registry tracking out-of-hospital cardiac arrests in communities in 42 states.

The database analysis included all nontraumatic out-of-hospital cardiac arrests from 14 states and the District of Columbia where at least 50 percent of the population was in an area covered by a CARES participating agency from 2013 to 2017.

Researchers found that bystander CPR, survival to hospital discharge and neurologically favorable survival (mild to moderate cerebral incapacity) was higher in states that require CPR training in high school.

Of the cases studied from 2013 through 2017 (with people representing all ages), 59 percent occurred in states with required high school CPR training enacted. In those states:
  • 41.3 percent of people who suffered cardiac arrest outside of a hospital received bystander CPR before emergency medical services arrived, compared to 36.1 percent in states without CPR education laws enacted.
  • 11.3 percent of people who suffered cardiac arrest outside of a hospital survived to hospital discharge, compared to 8.9 percent for states without the laws enacted.
  • Neurologically favorable survival was more likely in states with the laws enacted, 9.5 percent compared to 7.6 percent for states without laws enacted.

Because CARES is a registry and data are owned by varying local and state agencies, information on specific states included in the study is confidential.

The problem of misidentification between edible and poisonous wild plants: Reports from the Mediterranean area.

Food Chem Toxicol. 2018 Sep;119:112-121

Authors: Cornara L, Smeriglio A, Frigerio J, Labra M, Di Gristina E, Denaro M, Mora E, Trombetta D

Abstract
Today, in many European countries, people are looking for wild edible plants to experience new tastes and flavors, by following the new trend of being green and environmentally friendly. Young borage and spinach leaves can be easily confused by inexpert pickers with those of other plants, including poisonous ones, such as Mandragora autumnalis Bertol. (mandrake) or Digitalis purpurea L. (foxglove), common in southern and northern Italy respectively. In the last twenty years, several cases of intoxication by accidental ingestion of mandrake and foxglove have been reported. The purpose of this work was to perform a pharmacognostic characterization of young leaves from borage, mandrake, foxglove and spinach, by micro-morphological, molecular and phytochemical techniques. The results showed that each of the three techniques investigated could be sufficient alone to provide useful information for the identification of poisonous species helping the medical staff to manage quickly the poisoned patients. However, the multi-disciplinary approach proposed could be very useful to asses the presence of poisonous plants in complex matrices, to build a database containing morphological, molecular and phytochemical data for the identification of poisonous species or in forensic toxicology, given their increasingly frequent use due to their low cost and relatively common availability.

          PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds May Soon Come To PlayStation 4      Cache   Translate Page      

The Korean Ratings board recently suggested that PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, PUBG Corp.'s battle royale game that once sat at the top of the world, will be coming to PlayStation 4. Generally the Korean Ratings Board sings pitch-perfect leaks of upcoming ports and games, but for those who might need a bit more evidence, the game has apparently appeared in the PlayStation Network database.

A user on gaming forum Resetera brought up a post from PSNProfiles.com, where a user found images of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds on PSN in two forms: the icon that appears in the user's library and the splash screen that shows when the game is loading. 

The battle royale game was snatched up as a console exclusive by Microsoft for the Xbox One last year, with PUBG Corp. citing that Xbox One having early access as being the main reason they agreed to Microsoft's offer. With the game now officially "out" on Xbox One, as in out of early access, it would be able to come to PlayStation 4 no problem. Sony has shown a willingness to ignore blocking early access games, as they did with Fortnite when it released in Save the World form.

If PUBG releases on PlayStation 4 with a publisher other than Bluehole, it will have a different publisher on every platform: Bluehole on PC and Microsoft on Xbox One.


          Sunset Overdrive Is Likely Heading To PC (Update: Steam Listing)      Cache   Translate Page      

Update: A listing has also appeared on the Steam database for the game, with the last update being an hour ago. It seems like there's likely to be an announcement fairly soon, possibly at XO18.

The original story, reported on November 1 at 9:30 a.m. CT, is as follows:

Insomniac Games finally hit the big time with the recent PS4 exclusive Spider-Man and it looks like Microsoft is trying to bring some of the developer's other work to the spotlight as well. Earlier this year, the Korean Ratings Board listed a PC port of the open-world Sunset Overdrive, one of the Xbox One's earliest and beloved exclusives.

The ESRB has also just added a listing for a PC port the game, lending more credence to the possibility of seeing it on PC sometime in the near future, likely under Microsoft's expanded Game Pass. Obviously none of this is an official announcement but this is about as solid a bet you can make that we'll see Sunset Overdrive on PC soon.

          The Wood Database WOOD! Identifying and Using Hundreds of Woods Worldwide (Hardcover)      Cache   Translate Page      

Understanding Earth's most fascinating natural resource: books about wood usually come from one of two very opposite poles: there are either craft-oriented books filled mainly with pretty pictures, but with very weak or vague data, or there are thinly veiled scientific books, filled with an over-abundance of data: burying the uninitiated in microscope images and confusing terminology. This book hopes to selectively bring together the best of both worlds: written from a craftsperson's perspective, it also seeks to glean the wealth of scientific knowledge and bring it into practical reach for woodworkers everywhere. Over 350 woods covered. 100 plus full-page profiles. 100 plus half-page profiles for less-common woods. Guides for distinguishing lookalike woods. Detailed identification data and strength properties.

          Answer by Irina Karan      Cache   Translate Page      
Ask your agent what the marketing plan to sell your listing is. Set up ground rules - how often you want to be contacted, what you want to know from your agent, what your expectations are. Send it to your agent in writing to discuss and agree upon. This way, you know what to expect from the process. You also know what the time frame is for each part of the process. You may not know, but the agent could have emailed your listing info to his/her database of agents or buyers already, or put it on different internet real estate sites... Main thing: make sure that your house is in great condition, decluttered and staged - ready to be shown. Also - that your marketing program shows your house on as many real estate sites as possible, with lots of visual presentation (the max amount of pictures allowed in your local MLS) and virtual tour. Best of luck! Hope this helps, Irina Karan Beachfront Realty, Inc. IrinaKaran@gmail.com

I'm Justin. I moved to Japan in 2002 and I'm married to my Japanese wife (lovingly called "Spellchecker"). I've taken the JLPT tests up to N1 (yes, I was there) using this app. I speak, read and write Japanese fluently and I'm an overactive developer who can't sit still.

What's New

- iPhone XS/XR ready.

Apologies for two quick updates in a row. I just had to get these iCloud fixes out there.

Roles of Cyclooxygenase-2 gene -765G > C (rs20417) and -1195G > A (rs689466) polymorphisms in gastric cancer: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Gene. 2018 Oct 31;:

Authors: Luo MX, Long BB, Li F, Zhang C, Pan MT, Huang YQ, Chen B

Abstract
BACKGROUND: The roles of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) -765G > C (rs20417) and -1195G > A (rs689466) polymorphisms in gastric cancer were intensively analyzed, but the results of these studies were inconsistent. We conducted a meta-analysis and trial sequential analysis to elucidate the associations between these two COX2 polymorphisms and gastric cancer risk.
METHODS: Eligible studies were searched in PubMed, Embase, Cochrane library databases, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Vip, and Wanfang databases. Odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to assess the genetic correlation between COX2 polymorphisms and gastric cancer susceptibility in five genetic models. Trial sequential analysis (TSA) was conducted to estimate whether the evidence of the results is sufficient. Furthermore, their interactions with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) or smoking in gastric cancer were also assessed using a case-only method.
RESULTS: The COX2 gene -765G > C polymorphism showed no significant association with gastric cancer susceptibility under all the five genetic models (take the allelic model for example: OR = 1.41, 95% CI: 0.95-2.09) in total analysis, and the stratification analysis by ethnicity indicated a similar association in Caucasian group under four genetic models (allelic model, dominant model, homozygous model, and heterozygous model). But in the subgroup of the Asian population, the -765G > C polymorphism was significantly associated with gastric cancer risk under the same contrast. The COX2 -1195G > A polymorphism showed significant correlation with gastric cancer susceptibility in total analysis, and stratification analysis by ethnicity also revealed a similar association in both Asian and Caucasian groups under the same contrast. Moreover, TSA confirmed such associations. Both H. pylori infection and cigarette smoking interacted with -765 C allele in gastric cancer (OR = 3.79, 95% CI: 1.15-12.43 and OR = 2.48, 95% CI: 1.38-4.48, respectively), but not in -1195 A allele (OR = 1.96, 95% CI: 0.62-6.21, and OR = 1.24, 95% CI: 0.93-1.64, respectively).
CONCLUSIONS: COX2 -765G > C polymorphism may serve as a genetic biomarker of gastric cancer in Asians, but not in Caucasians. COX2 -1195G > A polymorphism may serve as a genetic biomarker of gastric cancer in both Asians and Caucasians. The -765G > C, rather than -1195G > A polymorphism interacted with H. pylori infection or cigarette smoking to increase gastric cancer risk.

          Why Is The First Start Of An Application Slow?      Cache   Translate Page      

Originally posted on: http://blog.freestylecoding.com/akraus1/archive/2015/08/25/166493.aspx

All of us have experienced it but very few of us have gone into the details to really find the reasons for it. First of all why should I care? After the first time the application starts much faster. Well you should care if you want to give your customer not only a good second startup time but also a decent first startup experience. To do that you need to do repeated tests. The first startup is commonly referred to cold startup and all subsequent runs are warm startup scenarios. To test a cold startup scenario you need to reboot your computer every time and start your application. Not very practical and I have no one ever seen going down that road. The difference between warm and cold startup time is that the first time the dlls and data of the application need to be loaded from disc which can take quite some time. All subsequent runs can read the data not from disk but from the in memory file system cache which is managed by the operating system.

What Is The File System Cache?

Windows uses the memory of your system in some clever way. All memory that is used by your applications is shown in the Task Manager. The rest of the memory is free and not used by anything. Really? Of course not. The free memory consists of data of previously exited applications which was in use some time a ago. This "free" memory is called Standby List which is where the file system cache of Windows is really living. It is therefore not a good idea to max out your memory usage in task manager because if you do this you are flushing the file system cache which will result in a slow system. This cache is the reason why your second and all further startup times are much better. No disc accesses at all compared to the first run if all goes well.

How can you flush it?

If you want to measure cold startup times you need to clear the file system cache somehow. The easiest way is to use RAMMap from SysInternals. It has an option to flush the Standby List.

image

That is nice but unfortunately there is no command line tool available to do this in a test script to create repeatable tests. But not all is lost. Process Hacker is a better clone of Process Explorer which comes with full source code. There you can find the undocumented Windows API calls to flush the OS file system cache directly. It is basically

SYSTEM_MEMORY_LIST_COMMAND command = MemoryPurgeStandbyList;
NtSetSystemInformation(SystemMemoryListInformation, &command, sizeof(SYSTEM_MEMORY_LIST_COMMAND));

and you are done. There is also another trick I want to share: You want to clear the file system cache for a specific file? Windows will flush the file system cache if a file was opened with the FILE_FLAG_NO_BUFFERING flag. Here is little C# class that employs this trick:

    class FileSystemTools
    {
        const int FILE_FLAG_NO_BUFFERING = 0x20000000;
        const FileOptions Unbuffered = (FileOptions)FILE_FLAG_NO_BUFFERING;

        /// <summary>
        /// Flush the file system cache for this file. This ensures that all subsequent operations on the file really cause disc
        /// access and you can measure the real disc access time.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="file">full path to file.</param>
        public static void FlushFSCacheForFile(string file)
        {
            using (FileStream fileStream = new FileStream(file, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.ReadWrite, 4096, FileOptions.None | Unbuffered))
            {

            }
        }
    }

Hidden Dragons

If the first test run is slow and all other are fast we know that the file system cache is to blame. If you see a pattern like this

image

you know that the first run was cold and all others were warm. If we now flush the file system cache we should get rock solid cold times with no other influencers except virus scanner, indexing service and other pesky applications making our test unpredictable. If we measure again - this time with flushing the file system cache - we get this:

image

 

This is not warm and not cold. What is it then? The answer is it was mostly a warm startup because another instance of the application was still running. If the a process is alive and its working set was not trimmed then the dll data is NOT in the cache since it still belongs to the working set of a running process. You need therefore make sure that you close all applications which keep your dlls in memory (e..g Visual Studio with its designers ….) to test a real cold startup scenario. There are other pitfalls as well. If you kill a process without waiting until it has terminated you can get random good runs because a process kill is an asynchronous operation. You have to wait on the process handle until it becomes signaled to be sure that it is really gone. Or if you are using .NET you need to call Process.WaitForExit() to be sure.

After we have fixed that we get this graph:

image

What the hell is going on here? This was quite hard to find out since there is very little information on the net how to reliably test cold startup scenarios. The hidden thing is Superfetch.

Doesn´t ring a bell? Besides speeding up the boot it also tries to prefetch often used application dlls into memory before the application is started based on intelligent heuristics. This gets in our way if we flush the file system cache. After that the Superfetch system service named SysMain  which is hosted in a generic svchost.exe process tries to prefetch often used dlls at low IO priority. This is additional IO collides with our test where we want to load our dlls as well. To get consistent IO numbers it is therefore best to stop the Superfetch service.

sc stop SysMain

After doing that the graph still looks the same. What is interesting that if our application reads about 30MB more data it starts nearly 10s faster. This is a mystery which only xperf can solve. Here is a Disc IO graph of a 23s slow run

image

And here is a fast 14s run.

image

We read more data but the Disc Service Time is less! The average Disc Queue Depth is very high which should indicate an overwhelmed disc. What stands out is that we have about 70% less disc read operations on the assembly folder where the native images of .NET applications are stored. Sometimes we read the disc in a slow and sometimes in a fast way. To answer the question why we read from the disc in such different ways we need to check out the Disc IO Init call stacks. These will tell us who did initiate the read operations and most important when. First comes the slow run

image

It is no surprise that our slow cold startup causes many hard page faults which triggers the kernel to read the missing pages from disc. This is known to be slow. We can do little about it except to execute less code during startup. The graph shows a nice scattered pattern across the complete startup time. Now lets have a look at the fast run

image

That looks radically different. We load the same dlls but we have no hard faults? All dll data is read before the application main thread starts running. In our process the Prefetcher reads its prefetch database which is 1,3MB in size (see PfSnPrefetchMetaData in 687ms) which allows it to read our dlls in PfSnPrefetchSections (151MB in 3,1s) to read the dll data mostly with sequential reads in about half of the time. That is the real reason why we have so wildly varying startup times. The prefetcher will look at ca. the first 12s of application startup and will then update the prefetch database for your executable. Next time the startup is a little better and it will update it again causing it to prefetch a little more and so on. This is a nice self tuning system which not many people are aware of. From time to time the prefetcher seems to do nothing to check (that is my guess) if the prefetch database is helping at all. That explains the mostly good and sometimes very slow numbers whre no prefetching is active.

If we aim at stable cold repeatable tests we need to delete disable the Superfetch service because this process is responsible to write and update the prefetch database. The prefetch database file is located at

C:\Windows\Prefetch\ExeName-FileHashPrefetchFlag.pf

We need to delete that file as well and now we have real control over our IO during application startup. If you want to calculate the file name of your application prefetch database you need to take the full path of your executable and run it through a hash function which is described at http://forensicswiki.org/wiki/Prefetch. There are still some sites out there which tell you to delete the prefetch folder to prevent caching of dlls to make your system faster. If these guys would have really measured their startup time in a controlled and systematic manner they would not have written such misleading guidelines. As you can see you need to take care about a lot of details to really understand your system. But it is worth it. If you have looked closely at the .pf file name there is a PrefetchFlag at the end. That is a number which you can pass to generic container processes to generate for the same executable different prefetch databases. This can be useful if you have generic container processes with wildly varying dll sets inside them. How do you tell the OS loader that you want to use a different prefetch database to speed up cold startup times?

Simple: Pass it as command line parameter! If you create e.g. an executable with the name prefetchTest.exe and pass /prefetch:dd as command line argument to it you get different prefetch files for each scenario:

prefetchTest.exe
    C:\Windows\Prefetch\PREFETCHTEST.EXE-47E1C1B1.pf 
prefetchTest.exe /prefetch:1
    C:\Windows\Prefetch\PREFETCHTEST.EXE-47E1C1B2.pf
prefetchTest.exe /prefetch:2
    C:\Windows\Prefetch\PREFETCHTEST.EXE-47E1C1B3.pf
That is a nice find. Perhaps you can make your own customers happier by including a cold startup test in your test suite to make the pain public. Most test reports I have seen include only warm numbers because it is quite difficult to create repeatable and stable cold startup tests. Here are my tips as short bullets for repeatable cold startup measurements:

Test Machine Preparation

  • Stop/Disable the Superfetch (SysMain) service.
  • Disable Windows Search (WSearch) service.
  • Disable Virus scanners.
  • Disable scheduled tasks and other system management software.
  • Delete the prefetch database for your executable.

Test Execution

  • Kill all applications which keep your dlls loaded.
  • Flush the file system cache before the test.

When you follow these tips you will get easily repeatable and stable cold startup numbers. If for some reason during startup much more code is executed which causes many page faults you can easily spot it. The warm startup time might not be affected at all because the actual run time of the additional code might be low but the new disc access pattern could be pricy in terms of cold startup time.

          It looks like the smash-hit game that paved the way for 'Fortnite: Battle Royale' is finally coming to PlayStation 4 (SNE)      Cache   Translate Page      

playerunknown's battlegrounds

  • It looks like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," the game whose success paved the way for "Fortnite: Battle Royale," is coming to the PlayStation 4.
  • The game hasn't officially been announced, but files for the game are present in the PlayStation 4 game database, and the online PSN store.
  • "PUBG" is one of the most popular action games on PC, but it's been console exclusive to the Xbox One for the past year.

It looks like "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," the game that is largely credited with sparking the popularity of battle royale shooting games like "Fortnite: Battle Royale," is set for release on PlayStation 4.

While Bluehole, the game's developer, has yet to confirm a PS4 release date, fans have discovered files on PlayStation 4 consoles and in Sony's online PlayStation Network store. Last month the South Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee leaked ratings for a PlayStation 4 version of the game as well. A representative for the game declined to comment. 

"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds," or "PUBG," was officially released on PC in May 2017 and has been console exclusive to the Xbox One since December 2017. The game was in Microsoft's Xbox Game Preview program until September 4th, when version 1.0 was officially released. The mobile version of the game is also one of the most popular video games in China.

Like "Fortnite: Battle Royale" and other games that it inspired, "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" throws 100 players onto a single map with scattered resources. Players need to find weapons and items to defend themselves as the safe areas of the map begin to shrink. The last player or team surviving at the end of the round is the winner.

Though "PUBG" helped pioneer the battle royale genre, the game has seen its star wane, even as rivals like "Fortnite" have skyrocketed to success and challengers like "Call of Duty's" Blackout and "Battlefield V's" Firestorm continue to crop up. and. "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" has a smaller development team than those games and has struggled to keep up with the demands of a massive community.

In November of 2017, "PUBG" was averaging 1.3 million players each day, according to SteamCharts, which tracks players on Steam, the most popular platform for PC games. The average number of daily "PUBG" players has since dwindled to about 450,000 over the last 30 days.

Still, "PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" remains one of the three most popular games on Steam by a wide margin, alongside "Dota 2" and "CounterStrike: Global Offensive." 

With "PUBG" available on multiple platforms, players are wondering if Bluehole will be able to implement cross-platform play. Earlier this year "Fortnite" became the first game to offer cross-platform play between the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices. Bluehole has expressed interest in allowing cross-platform play in the past, but nothing has been confirmed.

"PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds" is currently available on PC and Xbox One for $29.99. This hypothetical PS4 version will likely carry a similar price.

          Video game addiction has sparked a culture war in China — and it’s having huge repercussions for the world's biggest video game maker      Cache   Translate Page      

Tencent mobile video games

  • Tencent, the world's largest video game publisher, will implement age restrictions for all of its titles in China in 2019.
  • Player identities will be verified using China's national citizen database and gamers under the age of 18 will have their playtime limited to one or two hours per day.
  • Tencent is also testing facial identification software in two cities to assist with player verification.
  • The mandatory verification and time limits arrive as Chinese officials consider new regulations to combat video game addiction.

Chinese video game publisher Tencent plans to implement age restrictions for all of its games in China in 2019 and will continue to use the country's national citizen database to verify player identities.

The new policy aims to limit playing time for children, as Chinese officials continue to express concerns about video game addiction. Tencent is the world's largest video game publisher and China is the world's largest video game market, generating more than $34 billion in annual revenue, according to NewZoo.

The rising popularity of video games has created a cultural clash in the country, with critics arguing that gaming is an unproductive and potentially addictive hobby for Chinese youth. Since last year, regulators have slowly restricted the approval of new games and prevented publishers from monetizing titles that are already popular.

In a response to criticism and government recommendations, Tencent began age-restricting playtime for its most popular game, "Honour of Kings," last year. Players under the age of 18 were limited to playing just two hours a day, while those under the age of 12 were limited to one hour a day. On Weibo, a Chinese social media platform, the company announced it will soon expand the policy to its top 10 most popular mobile games, and more PC and mobile titles will get the same treatment next year.

Tencent recently announced that all players will need to verify their identity using their Real Name Identity System (RNIS) to play "Honour of Kings." According to research firm Niko Partners, each player's name and age is checked against the national citizen database maintained by China's Ministry of Public Security. In September, Tencent also began testing facial recognition software with thousands of randomly selected users living in Beijing and Shenzhen.

While the verification system and age-limits are meant to address the potential negative impact of video games on children, it raises new questions about player privacy. "Honour of Kings" alone has more than 200 million players, and Tencent is documenting identifying information for every one of them to verify with the Chinese government.

As it stands, gamers playing Tencent games outside of China aren't subject to the same strict verification process.

          An Introductory Guide to Managing WordPress with WP-CLI      Cache   Translate Page      

This article provides an introductory guide to WP-CLI, a command-line tool that was created to make developers’ lives easier, allowing them to manage a WordPress site through the command line rather than through the usual admin interface.

WP-CLI was created by Daniel Bachhuber over a decade ago. Since then, it’s become an indispensable tool in every advanced WordPress developer’s arsenal — “deployed and relied upon by almost every major user of WordPress”, according to Matt Mullenweg. Since 2016, WP-CLI has been an official WordPress CLI tool.

WP-CLI is used for installing and setting up a WordPress website, changing its options, administering users, and a host of other things. It can be leveraged to significantly speed up developers’ workflows.

WP-CLI comes as a phar file — short for PHP Archive. It’s a standard for packaging multiple PHP files and other resources as a single application — for simpler distribution and installation.

Installation

WP-CLI presumes, obviously, that we have access to the system shell. This will be pretty straightforward on Linux and macOS systems — particularly on servers — as WordPress is served almost universally from Linux machines. If we have dedicated server hosting, or cloud hosting like AWS, Alibaba Cloud, etc., or if we’re using a VPS from Digital Ocean, Vultr, Linode and the like, SSH comes as a default access option, but these days many shared hosts offer SSH access options. (Some might even come with WP-CLI preinstalled.)

For Windows users, WP-CLI can be installed via Composer, but we recommend readers get themselves acquainted with Windows Subsystem for Linux, because it makes it possible to have a native Linux environment available, along with Bash, package manager like APT, etc. WordPress is a PHP app, and PHP’s native environment is Linux.

Further code samples presume we’re using Linux or a Unix-type system.

To fetch the WP-CLI phar archive, we usecurl or wget:

curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wp-cli/builds/gh-pages/phar/wp-cli.phar  

This downloads our archive to the current directory. Then we make it executable:

chmod +x wp-cli.phar

We them move it so it’s available as a wp command:

sudo mv wp-cli.phar /usr/local/bin/wp

Now we have a wp command available:

[video width="600" height="" mp4="https://dab1nmslvvntp.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/1541465872wp.mp4"][/video]

Now, upon typing the wp command, it displays all the options for us, and possible parameters. One caveat: if we’re running as the root user, we need to add --allow-root to our commands:

Adding --allow-root to enable running as the root user

Now that we have it set up, we can explore the commands, and possible usage scenarios.

WP-CLI Commands

WP-CLI aims to offer a fast alternative to the WordPress web admin interface. There are chunks of code or functionality that offer simple, precise interfaces for performing complex tasks. Beside the bundled commands, WP-CLI defines an API for integrating third-party commands — WP_CLI::add_command(). These can be distributed either as standalone packages, or as part of WordPress plugins or themes.

In this guide, we’ll review bundled commands — those that come with the default WP-CLI installation — and some more notable third-party commands.

Commands can come as basic, one-argument commands like wp somecommand, or as subcommands under the base command namespace, such as wp somecommand subcommand.

wp core

The wp core subcommand is a command/namespace that consists of sucommands that deal with WordPress core — so we can download, install, update, convert to multisite and get information about our WordPress core version:

  • wp core download will download the latest version of WordPress into the current directory
  • wp core install runs the standard WordPress installation process, with options like --url=somewebsite.com, --title=SomeWebsite, --admin_user=someusername, --admin_password=somepassword and --admin_email=some@email.com
  • wp core multisite-install installs a new multisite WordPress installation, and wp core multisite-convert converts a regular installation into multisite.
  • wp core update will update WordPress to a newer version, and wp core update-db will update the database.

More details on wp core can be found in the documentation.

WP-CLI really shines when we combine its commands in Bash scripts, so we can combine, for example, wp core download and wp core install into a single Bash command and streamline the installation.

Worth noting here is that before we run the installation, we need to create a wp-config.php file, with database credentials and other details needed for the installation.

WP-CLI provides a wp config create command for this.

ChatterBaby 1.1


Device: iOS iPhone
Category: Lifestyle
Price: Free, Version: 1.1 (iTunes)

Description:

What is ChatterBaby?
ChatterBaby compares your baby’s sounds to our database of roughly 1,500 sounds, to determine whether and why your infant cries. It uses math(emagics). Before you use it, you must apologize to every math teacher you’ve ever told, “Why do I need to learn this junk?”

How accurate is ChatterBaby?
ChatterBaby correctly identifies roughly 85% of pain cries, and is roughly 90% accurate for catching any baby cries. Fussy/whiny cries are the cries most often mistaken for non-crying.

How can I make ChatterBaby work better?
The less background noise is present, the better the algorithm will work. If you feed it a soundclip of you singing to your crying baby, it will not work. If you feed ChatterBaby a soundclip of your dog barking, it will not work.

What kinds of cries does ChatterBaby predict?
The algorithm assumes the baby is crying for only three reasons: hungry, fussy, and pain. If your baby is crying because he really, really, wants to taste some Legos and you just won’t let him (true story), it will not work. Sad fact: separation anxiety cries are predicted as “pain” by our algorithm.

Can I trust the ChatterBaby algorithm?
Your brain and your own intuition are far more powerful than the fanciest equations. If the ChatterBaby algorithm and your own common sense disagree, always trust your brain.

What happens to my data?
We store it for science on a server that is HIPAA-compliant, removing as much information as possible that links your data to you individually. We are interested in discovering whether abnormal vocalization patterns in infants can predict neurodevelopmental delays such as autism. Odds are, a human being will never actually hear your baby’s audio sample; a computer script will run some math on it and throw the answers in a big spreadsheet to do even more math. For more information, see the Consent Form you agreed to when launching the app: link to consent.

Is there a warranty?
Nope. Nein. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

Is this a medical device?
No. See also “Can I trust the ChatterBaby algorithm?“ above.

What about remote monitoring?
TBD.

          Somalia: Security Council Adopts Resolution 2442 (2018), Authorizing 12-Month Extension for International Naval Forces Fighting Piracy off Somali Coast      Cache   Translate Page      
Source: UN Security Council
Country: Somalia

SC/13566
6 NOVEMBER 2018
SECURITY COUNCIL
8391ST MEETING (AM)

The Security Council, acting by consensus today, decided to renew for 12 months authorizations allowing international naval forces to join in the fight against piracy in the waters off the coast of Somalia.

Adopting resolution 2442 (2018) under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, the 15-member Council deplored all acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the Somali coast. While noting improvements in Somalia, it nevertheless recognized that piracy exacerbates instability in the country and stressed the need for a comprehensive, international response that also works to tackle the underlying causes of the phenomenon.

By the terms of the text, the Council encouraged the Parliament of Somalia to approve a draft coast guard law and urged the Somali authorities to continue efforts towards passing a comprehensive set of anti-piracy and maritime laws without further delay. It also called upon the authorities to make all efforts to bring to justice those who are using Somali territory to plan, facilitate or undertake criminal acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea, while calling upon Member States to assist Somalia ‑ at the request of Somali authorities and with notification to the Secretary-General ‑ to strengthen its maritime capacity.

Welcoming the initiative of the Seychelles to establish a court for piracy and maritime crime and the successful prosecution of piracy cases by that entity, the Council also recognized the need for States, international and regional organizations and other appropriate partners to share information for anti-piracy law enforcement purposes. In addition, it noted the need for those partners to keep under review the possibility of applying targeted sanctions against individuals or entities that plan, organize, facilitate, or illicitly finance or profit from piracy operations if they meet the listing criteria set out in paragraph 43 of resolution 2093 (2013). The Council also called upon all States to cooperate fully with the Somalia and Eritrea Monitoring Group.

By other terms of the resolution, the Council renewed its call upon States and regional organizations that are able to do so to join the fight against piracy and armed robbery off the coast of Somalia by deploying naval vessels, arms and military aircraft; providing basing and logistical support for counter-piracy forces; and seizing and disposing of boats, vessels, arms and other related equipment used in the commission of piracy-related crimes. It further encouraged the Government of Somalia to accede to the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime and urged all States to take appropriate actions under their domestic laws to prevent the illicit financing of piracy acts and the laundering of its proceeds.

The meeting began at 10:05 a.m. and ended at 10:07 a.m.

Resolution

The full text of resolution 2442 (2018) reads as follows:

“The Security Council,

“Recognizing that 2018 marks the tenth anniversary of resolution 1816 on the situation with respect to piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia and recalling its previous resolutions concerning the situation in Somalia, especially resolutions 1814 (2008), 1816 (2008), 1838 (2008), 1844 (2008), 1846 (2008), 1851 (2008), 1897 (2009), 1918 (2010), 1950 (2010), 1976 (2011), 2015 (2011), 2020 (2011), 2077 (2012) 2125 (2013), 2184 (2014), 2246 (2015), and 2316 (2016) and 2383 (2017) as well as the Statement of its President (S/PRST/2010/16) of 25 August 2010 and (S/PRST/2012/24) of 19 November 2012,

“Welcoming the report of the Secretary-General (S/2018/903), as requested by resolution 2383 (2017), on the implementation of that resolution and on the situation with respect to piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia,

“Reaffirming its respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity, political independence, and unity of Somalia, including Somalia’s sovereign rights in accordance with international law, with respect to offshore natural resources, including fisheries,

“Noting that the joint counter-piracy efforts of States, regions, organizations, the maritime industry, the private sector, think tanks, and civil society have resulted in a steady decline in pirate attacks as well as hijackings since 2011, with no successful ship hijackings reported off the coast of Somalia since March 2017 however, recognizing the ongoing threat that resurgent piracy and armed robbery at sea poses to the prompt, safe, and effective delivery of humanitarian aid to Somalia and the region, to the safety of seafarers and other persons, to international navigation and the safety of commercial maritime routes, and to other ships, including fishing vessels operating in conformity with international law, commending countries that have deployed naval forces in the Gulf of Aden and the Somali Basin to dissuade piracy networks from carrying out acts of piracy,

“Welcoming the reinstatement of the Somali Maritime Security Coordination Committee (MSCC) meeting held from 9 to 10 July 2018 between the Federal Government of Somalia, Federal Member States and international partners which called for enhanced cooperation in strengthening Somalia’s maritime security as a key priority for both the Federal Government of Somalia and Federal Member States and urged the National Security Council to agree on a delineation of roles of the Somali maritime forces, as required by the Transition Plan and recognizing the importance of engaging in transition planning,

“Further reaffirming that international law, as reflected in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 10 December 1982, sets out the legal framework applicable to activities in the ocean, including countering piracy and armed robbery at sea,

“Recognizing the need to investigate and prosecute not only suspects captured at sea, but also anyone who incites or intentionally facilitates piracy operations, including key figures of criminal networks involved in piracy who plan, organize, facilitate, or illicitly finance or profit from such attacks, and reiterating its concern over persons suspected of piracy having been released without facing justice, reaffirming that the failure to prosecute persons responsible for acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia undermines anti-piracy efforts,

“Noting with concern that the continuing limited capacity and domestic legislation to facilitate the custody and prosecution of suspected pirates after their capture has hindered more robust international action against pirates off the coast of Somalia, which has led to pirates in many cases being released without facing justice, regardless of whether there is sufficient evidence to support prosecution, and reiterating that, consistent with the provisions of United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea concerning the repression of piracy, the 1988 Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts Against the Safety of Maritime Navigation provides for parties to create criminal offences, establish jurisdiction, and accept delivery of persons responsible for, or suspected of seizing, or exercising control over, a ship by force or threat thereof, or any other form of intimidation,

“Underlining the primary responsibility of the Somali authorities in the fight against piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia, noting the several requests from Somali authorities for international assistance to counter piracy off its coast, including the letter of 25 October 2018, from the Permanent Representative of the Permanent Mission of Somalia to the United Nations expressing the appreciation of Somali authorities to the Security Council for its assistance, expressing their willingness to consider working with other States and regional organizations to combat piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia, asking member states and international organizations to support the Federal Government of Somalia in its efforts to address illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing in its Exclusive Economic Zone, and requesting that the provisions of resolution 2383 (2017) be renewed for an additional 12 months,

“Welcoming the participation of the Federal Government of Somalia and regional partners in the 21st plenary session of the Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia (CGPCS) in Nairobi, Kenya, 11–13 July 2018, co-hosted by the Indian Ocean Commission under the Chairmanship of Mauritius,

“Recognizing the work of the CGPCS and the Law Enforcement Task Force to facilitate the prosecution of suspected pirates, and the intentions of the Regional Capacity Building Working Group to identify regional priorities and coordination of capacity-building activities and regional responsibilities,

“Noting the progress made to enhance Somali capacity building through the National Maritime Coordination Committee (NMCC) to assess maritime priorities between the Federal Government of Somalia and Federal Member States,

“Welcoming the financing provided by the Trust Fund to Support Initiatives of States Combating Piracy off the Coast of Somalia (the Trust Fund) to strengthen regional ability to prosecute suspected pirates and imprison those convicted in accordance with applicable international human rights law, noting with appreciation the assistance provided by the United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Maritime Crime Programme, and being determined to continue efforts to ensure that pirates are held accountable,

“Commending the efforts of the European Union Naval Forces (EUNAVFOR) Operation ATALANTA and EUCAP Somalia, Combined Maritime Forces’ Combined Task Force 151, the counter-piracy activities of the African Union onshore in Somalia and other States acting in a national capacity in cooperation with Somali authorities and each other to suppress piracy and to protect ships transiting through the waters off the coast of Somalia, and welcoming the Shared Awareness and Deconfliction Initiative (SHADE) and the efforts of individual countries, including China, India, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Japan, the Republic of Korea, and the Russian Federation, which have deployed naval counter-piracy missions in the region,

“Noting the efforts of flag States for taking measures to permit vessels sailing under their flag transiting the High Risk Area (HRA) to embark vessel protection detachments and privately contracted armed security personnel (PCASP), and to allow charters that favour arrangements that make use of such measures, while urging States to regulate such activities in accordance with applicable international law,

“Welcoming and encouraging the capacity-building efforts in the region made by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) funded Djibouti Code of Conduct, the Trust Fund and the European Union’s activities under the EU Capacity Building Mission in Somalia (EUCAP Somalia) which assists Somalia in strengthening its maritime security capacity in order to enable it to enforce maritime law more effectively, and recognizing the need for all engaged international and regional organizations to coordinate and cooperate fully,

“Supporting the development of a coastguard at the federal level and coastguard police at the Federal Member State level, noting with appreciation the efforts made by the IMO and the shipping industry to develop and update guidance, best management practices, and recommendations to assist ships to prevent and suppress piracy attacks off the coast of Somalia, including in the Gulf of Aden, and in relevant parts of the Indian Ocean that are still within the High Risk Area and recognizing the work of the IMO and the CGPCS in this regard, noting the efforts of the International Organization for Standardization, which has developed industry standards of training and certification for Private Maritime Security Companies when providing PCASP on board ships in high-risk areas, and further welcoming the European Union’s EUCAP Somalia, which is working to develop the maritime security capacities of Somalia,

“Underlining the importance of continuing to enhance the collection, preservation, and transmission to competent authorities of evidence of acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia, and welcoming the ongoing work of the IMO, INTERPOL, and industry groups to develop guidance to seafarers on preservation of crime scenes following acts of piracy, and noting the importance of enabling seafarers to give evidence in criminal proceedings to prosecute acts of piracy,

“Further recognizing that pirate networks continue to rely on kidnapping and hostage-taking to help generate funding to purchase weapons, gain recruits, and continue their operational activities, thereby jeopardizing the safety and security of civilians and restricting the flow of commerce, and welcoming international efforts to coordinate the work of investigators and prosecutors, inter alia, through the Law Enforcement Task Force and collect and share information to disrupt the pirate enterprise, as exemplified by INTERPOL’s Global Database on Maritime Piracy, and commending the establishment of the Maritime Information Fusion Centre (RMIFC) in Madagascar, the sister centre of the Regional Centre for Operational Coordination (RCOC) in Seychelles following the signing of the Regional Agreement for the Setting up of a Regional Maritime Information Exchange and Sharing Mechanism in the Western Indian Ocean by Djibouti, Madagascar, Mauritius, Union of Comoros and Seychelles , including the establishment of the Piracy Prosecution Readiness Plan which, under the auspices of UNODC and in partnership with EU NAVFOR, will further develop the region’s capacity to conduct piracy prosecutions,

“Reaffirming international condemnation of acts of kidnapping and hostage-taking, including offences contained within the International Convention against the Taking of Hostages, strongly condemning the continuing practice of hostage-taking by pirates operating off the coast of Somalia, expressing serious concern at the inhumane conditions hostages face in captivity, recognizing the adverse impact on their families, calling for the immediate release of all remaining hostages, and noting the importance of cooperation between Member States on the issue of hostage-taking and the prosecution of suspected pirates for taking hostages,

“Commending Kenya, Mauritius, Seychelles, and the United Republic of Tanzania, for their efforts to prosecute suspected pirates in their national courts, and noting with appreciation the assistance provided by the UNODC Maritime Crime Programme, the Trust Fund, and other international organizations and donors, in coordination with the CGPCS, to support Kenya, Mauritius, Seychelles, the United Republic of Tanzania, Somalia, and other States in the region with their efforts to prosecute, or incarcerate in a third State after prosecution elsewhere, pirates, including facilitators and financiers ashore, consistent with applicable international human rights law, and emphasizing the need for States and international organizations to further enhance international efforts in this regard,

“Welcoming the readiness of the Federal Government of Somalia and Federal Member States to cooperate with each other and with States who have prosecuted suspected pirates with a view to enabling convicted pirates to be repatriated back to Somalia under suitable prisoner transfer arrangements, consistent with applicable international law, including international human rights law, and acknowledging the return from Seychelles to Somalia of convicted prisoners willing and eligible to serve their sentences in Somalia, and noting that the sentences served must be those passed by the courts of the prosecuting states and that any proposal to vary the sentences must be in conformity with the 2011 Transfer Agreement with the Seychelles,

“Welcoming the work of the Maritime Security Coordination Committee (MSCC), the central mechanism for developing capability and identifying and channelling support, as highlighted at the London Somalia Conference in May 2017, and encouraging the Somali national and regional administrations to take increasing responsibility for counter-piracy initiatives,

“Expressing serious concern over reports of illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUU) in Somalia’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), and noting the complex relationship between IUU fishing and piracy, recognizing that IUU fishing accounts for millions of dollars in lost revenue for Somalia each year, and can contribute to destabilization among coastal communities,

“Noting Somalia’s accession to the FAO’s Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing, recognizing the projects supported by FAO and UNODC aimed at enhancing Somalia’s capacity to combat such activities, and stressing the need for States and international organizations to further intensify their support to the Federal Government of Somalia, at its request, in enhancing Somalia’s capacity to combat such activities,

“Recognizing the ongoing efforts of the Federal Government of Somalia towards the development of a legal regime for the distribution of fishing licences, commending in this regard the implementation of a component of the EU-funded Programme to Promote Regional Maritime Security (CCAP) with FAO aims to promote proper and transparent licensed and regulated fishing with regional states, and encouraging further efforts in this regard, with the support of the international community,

“Recalling the reports of the Secretary General which illustrate the seriousness of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia and provide useful guidance for the investigation and prosecution of pirates, including on specialized anti-piracy courts,

“Remaining concerned that four-Iranian seafarers from the FV Siraj remain as hostages inside Somalia in appalling conditions, and welcoming the work of International Seafarers Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN) and Maritime Piracy Humanitarian Response Programme (MPHRP) in the provision of post trauma intervention and financial support to victims of piracy and their families; as well as the CGPCS Piracy Survivors Family Fund (PSFF), which provides funds for the survivors of Somali piracy, and for their families, to provide a range of support during and after captivity and recognizing the need to continue supporting these initiatives and contributions to funds,

“Recognizing the progress made by the CGPCS and UNODC in the use of public information tools to raise awareness of the dangers of piracy and highlight the best practices to eradicate this criminal phenomenon,

“Noting efforts by UNODC and UNDP and the funding provided by the Trust Fund, the European Union, the United Kingdom, the United States, and other donors to develop regional judicial and law enforcement capacity to investigate, arrest, and prosecute suspected pirates and to incarcerate convicted pirates consistent with applicable international human rights law,

“Bearing in mind the Djibouti Code of Conduct concerning the Repression of Piracy and Armed Robbery against Ships in the Western Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden, noting the operations of information-sharing centres in, Kenya, and the United Republic of Tanzania, recognizing the efforts of signatory States to develop the appropriate regulatory and legislative frameworks to combat piracy, enhance their capacity to patrol the waters of the region, interdict suspect vessels, and prosecute suspected pirates,

“Emphasizing that peace and stability within Somalia, the strengthening of State institutions, economic and social development, and respect for human rights and the rule of law are necessary to create the conditions for a durable eradication of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia, and further emphasizing that Somalia’s long-term security rests with the effective development by Somali authorities of the Somali Coast Guard and Maritime Police Units, Somali National Army, and Somali Police Force,

“Welcoming the Padang Communique and Maritime Cooperation Declaration adopted by the Indian Ocean Rim Association (IORA) at its 15th Council of Ministers meeting, which call upon members to support and strengthen cooperation to address maritime challenges including piracy and illegal trafficking of drugs,

“Welcoming the publication in June 2018 by BIMCO, International Chamber of Shipping, International Group of Protection & Indemnity Clubs, Intertanko, The Oil Companies International Marine Forum and others, of version 5 of Best Management Practices to deter Piracy and Enhance Maritime Security in the Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, Indian Ocean and the Arabian Sea (BMP5), acknowledging that the information and guidance contained within helps to reduce the risks to mariners and seafarers engaged in their lawful occupations,

“Recognizing that the ongoing instability in Somalia and the acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off its coast are inextricably linked, and stressing the need to continue the comprehensive response by the international community to repress piracy and armed robbery at sea and tackle its underlying causes,

“Determining that the incidents of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia, as well as the activity of pirate groups in Somalia, are an important factor exacerbating the situation in Somalia, which continues to constitute a threat to international peace and security in the region,

“Acting under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations,

          So What Exactly Are Those Weird Anime Games In Your Dreamcast Collection?      Cache   Translate Page      
Avid fans of the Dreamcast are most likely already aware that the console enjoyed a much longer life in its home country of Japan (the last officially licensed Dreamcast game, Karous, was released in 2007). For this reason, as well as the fact 90s console developers had a track record of thinking Western gamers were frightened of anything even slightly unconventional, there is an extensive list of Japan-only Dreamcast games just waiting for fans to import. The best part is that so many are playable without knowledge of the Japanese language. Check out our A to Z of Dreamcast Games if you want to know the best Japan-exclusives to get your mitts on.

All you need is a boot disc or a modded Dreamcast and voilà! you've unlocked another section of the Dreamcast library. However, for every playable game, there are just as many that are unplayable for anyone who isn't fluent in Japanese. Anyone who is insane enough to try and collect a full Japanese set will soon realise that there is plenty of "filler" - the kind of stuff you only buy for the sake of checking another game off the list and not because you are actually going to be able to play it. You know, those games with the anime girls on the front. Crap like this:
 
Some might mistakenly call these things "dating simulators", but that's a different kettle of fish entirely. No, these are "visual novels", and they do exactly what they say on the tin, they are novels with visual elements. Boot any of these up and you'll be greeted with nothing more than walls of Japanese text and images of anime characters making various expressions. They are a very niché style of game that have never had a big following outside of Japan, especially back in the early 2000s (hence their Japanese exclusivity). Some may debate whether or not they are actually games at all, but they're still something I'd recommend to keen readers and anime fans alike. 

Their "gameplay" more or less consists of reading text and occasionally answering a multiple choice question on how the main character should react or respond in a certain situation. That might not sound all that interesting to some, but I like to look at visual novels as a more visual version of a choose your own adventure book, and being a fan of anime, the artwork contained within is something I'm familiar with. A lot of the stories are enjoyable, and believe it or not, the plots aren't always romantic; there are visual novels that focus on genres like sci-fi and mystery, for example. I'm such an advocate for these anime-centric pieces of flashy reading material that I even wrote a whole article on my website Alt:Mag defending their case.

When it comes to visual novels, the Dreamcast is home to plenty. A search on the Visual Novel Database for releases on the Dreamcast brings up pages of these things, so if you're aiming for that full Japanese set and can't read the language, rest assured that you're about to become the proud owner of many interactive drinks coasters. But players of visual novels will tell you that the Dreamcast games with the anime girls on the front aren't filler at all, and that Japanese Dreamcast players were gifted with some absolute classics within the medium. Everyone says the Dreamcast has got some of the best games, well it does in the visual novel department too. Here, let me show you.

Something for the Sega Fanatics
Let's start with one that quite a few Dreamcast fans might at least be familiar with: Sakura Taisen (or Sakura Wars). This series is Sega's foray into the visual novel genre, but Sakura Wars is more than a vanilla visual novel, as it combines tactical RPG and dating sim elements. The first two Sakura Wars games were released on the Sega Saturn, but the series found its true home on the Dreamcast, where the first two games were re-released, along with brand spanking new releases of its third and fourth game. There was also a spin-off game called Sakura Taisen Online where players could play tabletop games over the internet against other players.

Sakura Wars is a game that always sounded right up my street for its blending of genres, but also because of how its visual novel/date simulation side plays so well into its tactical RPG side. The player's choices and interactions in the various Sakura Wars games play a heavy influence on their storylines and endings. As the player builds up relationships with certain characters, they will perform better in battle and their stats will improve. Think Persona 5, but a tactical version.

This is a franchise that sold well in Japan, and was merchandised heavily, with anime and manga adaptations made, and even a movie. There was also a pretty pink Sakura Wars branded Dreamcast released, along with a controller and a VMU. Sadly, despite its success in Japan, the fifth Sakura Wars game, released on the PS2 and the Wii in 2010, is the only game in the franchise to receive an official English release. However, efforts have been made to translate the PC version of the first game into English, with the last update in August of this year confirming that "[the] script is nearing completion, and editing is ramping up". The image below shows an example of how the translation will look! Exciting stuff. Weirdly, the first two games in the series received official PC releases in Russia of all places.

Something that is Considered a Masterpiece
Kotaro Uchikoshi, the celebrated writer/director behind the fantastic Zero Escape series had several of his earlier visual novels ported onto the Dreamcast. A few of the Memories Off games were released on the DC, as well as science fiction visual novel Never 7: The End of Infinity. Most notable however is Never 7's sequel: Ever17: The Out of Infinity, which is considered to be an absolute classic, and in the context of the Dreamcast, probably the best visual novel on the system. RPGFan ranked the game as the eighteenth best role-playing game of the 2000s, calling it "a pinnacle of visual novels" and calling its storyline "one of the most emotionally charged, intense, deep, and compelling [...] ever seen in a video game". 

Released in different variations on the Dreamcast (with the first released in 2002), Ever17 features a plot about seven individuals who become trapped in an underwater marine theme park and their attempts to escape. Ever17 is much bigger that a simple escape story, however. The relationships between its different characters are intricate and deep, and the game's multiple endings, unlockable routes and the mounting conspiracy about the real cause of the accident will have players revisiting many times until they've seen it all the way until the very end. While you won't be able to play it on your trusty white Sega box without knowing Japanese, this one did received an official English release on the PC, and a way of converting it to be played on the Nintendo DS in English exists too.

Interestingly, the premium edition (pictured above) contains a promotional disc for the third visual novel in the series, Remember 11: The Age of Infinity. This visual novel was never released on the Dreamcast, but unused menu items for "Dream Passport" and "VM Icon" exist in the files of its PC version, so it seems like a Dreamcast port was in the works at some point. I am really intrigued as to whether or not this promotional disc is just some kind of media content, or if is actually a playable demo of this unreleased Dreamcast game. If you own this version of Ever17, do let me know.

Something for the Hopeless Romantics
If you've ever seen an anime series called Clannad, I'm sorry for reminding you about the time you sobbed your eyes out over a cartoon. In case you didn't know, the Clannad anime is an adaptation of a critically acclaimed visual novel by a company called Key. Key are considered heavyweights in the romantic visual novel game, and their first two games received Dreamcast ports: Kanon and Air.

Kanon and Air follow a similar kind of plot structure and have similarly likeable characters. Both feature a very dream-like atmosphere and absolutely gorgeous music, with branching plot lines that can be absolutely heartbreaking, but heartbreaking is something that the developers Key are famous for: they are the Kings of emotional visual novel writing. The Dreamcast port for Kanon was released in 2000, and Air's was released in 2001. While PSP translations are on the way for both, for now anyone wanting to play either of these visual novels in English will have to get it on PC in the form of a translation patch. If anyone does feel like translating the Dreamcast version of Kanon into English though, I'll buy you a pint for your services. It's my favourite.

Something to Approach with Caution
This thing goes a little bit outside the theme of this article as it was never officially released on the Dreamcast, but I just had to include it because its existence absolutely blew my mind. Believe it or not, there exists an English homebrew port of a visual novel for the Dreamcast. It's a game called Divi-Dead, and the image you see above is a reproduction by a chap who goes by the name Dreamcasting.

Featuring a supernatural horror plot that takes place in a eerie high school setting, players take on the role of a student whose job is to spy on his fellow students in order to uncover a supernatural mystery. Divi-Dead appears to be much more interactive than a typical visual novel, allowing the player to navigate through the game's academy setting in order to encounter various scenes and conversations with other characters. Its art style absolutely oozes that late nineties anime art style which might entice quite a lot of anime nerds out there, but it also contains some extremely dark content, much of which is of a sexual nature. While the idea of an english visual novel being playable on the Dreamcast is amazing to me, and the dark atmosphere of the game seems pretty cool, the explicit themes are the reason I'm giving this one a miss. However if that kind of thing floats your boat and you want said boat floated on your favourite Sega console, it's completely doable.
  
My mind was subsequently blown when I also came to learn that Divi-Dead received an English homebrew port for the original Xbox too. What an amazing world we live in.

China’s Doctor Shortage Can Be Solved by AI

If there is one country that has invested heavily in health care reform over the last few years, it is China. But as its population grows older, with already 300 million people suffering from chronic diseases, it seems almost impossible to keep up with the soaring demand for health care. According to the latest data from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, China has 1.8 practicing doctors per 1,000 citizens, compared to 2.6 for the U.S. and 4.3 for Sweden. Can artificial intelligence relieve China’s overworked doctors of some of their burdens?

China’s Ailing Health Care SystemThe hard-working medical professionals who keep China’s ailing health care system running could certainly use a helping hand. Overcrowding is the order of the day in the country’s urban hospitals, with a typical outpatient department in Beijing seeing about 10,000 people every day. The problem is exacerbated by the scarcity of medical facilities in rural areas, which causes people to flock to hospitals in nearby cities.

As the Future Health Index 2018 by Philips shows, the relatively low number of skilled health care professionals in relation to the size of the population is one of the main reasons why access to care in China lags behind most of the other fifteen countries surveyed.

Demographic projections give further reason for concern. The demand for care will only continue to grow as China is aging more rapidly than almost any country in the world. The United Nations estimates that by 2040, the country’s population over 65 will reach about 303 million, which is almost equal to the current total population of the U.S.

However, there is also reason for optimism.

In its commitment to offer accessible and affordable care for all, the Chinese government is spearheading the development of health care technologies. And perhaps the most promising is AI.



The Rise of AIAI can help make sense of large amounts of data, fueled by computing power that has risen dramatically over the last few years. That’s why China offers particularly fertile ground for AI development: With its 1.4 billion population, the country sits on massive troves of data.

Recognizing the country’s AI potential, the government has set out an ambitious plan to turn China into the world’s leading AI innovation center. Health care is one of the industries that are set to benefit from multibillion-dollar investments in startups, academic research, and moonshot projects. This is not merely a vision, but a reality already in the making. According to Yiou Intelligence, a Beijing-based consultancy firm, some 131 Chinese companies are currently working on applying AI in health care.



A Smart Personal Assistant for PhysiciansSpeeding up the screening of medical images is just one of the ways in which AI could relieve China’s overburdened health care system.

As one Chinese radiologist said in an interview with The New York Times: “We have to deal with a vast amount of medical images every day. So we welcome technology if it can relieve the pressure while boosting efficiency and accuracy.”

We should take these needs to heart and focus on developing intelligent applications that ease the workload for physicians while improving outcomes for patients. Crucially, the goal should not be to replace physicians, but to augment their impact in their daily work, strengthening their role in the delivery of efficient and high-quality care.

For some, AI conjures up images of autonomous robots replacing human workers. But I believe that in health care, AI is best thought of as a smart personal assistant for physicians that adapts to their needs and ways of working—“adaptive intelligence,” as we call it at Philips. Viewed through that lens, AI will make health care more—not less—human.

Today, AI is already helping physicians with the analysis of medical images. As AI becomes increasingly sophisticated and is integrated with medical knowledge, it could support ever more precise diagnoses and personalized treatment plans. But in the short term, arguably the greatest gains are to be made in solving operational bottlenecks in hospitals—for example, by helping physicians get a quick overview of all clinically relevant information on a patient.

Patient data are usually stored in many disparate systems and formats. At Zhongshan Hospital in Shanghai, it can take a physician up to 20 days to manually extract all relevant information from 200 unstructured medical reports into one structured format.

By combining AI methods like natural language processing and machine learning with clinical knowledge, it is possible to collate all clinically relevant information in one dashboard. Physicians could spend less time capturing information from unstructured reports and less time sitting in front of a screen to get a complete picture of the patient.

Improving Care Close to People’s HomesAI could also enable patients with chronic conditions to become more informed about their health and to stay connected with professional caregivers.

According to the Future Health Index 2018, adoption of telehealth in China is currently much lower than the 16-country average, but the Chinese population is open to the use of technologies that can supplement the care they currently receive.

For example, home health monitoring technology powered by AI could help the frail and elderly stay connected with professional caregivers to ensure they receive timely care when needed. People with diabetes or hypertension could benefit from similar technology that allows them to track their condition via clinically validated sensors and devices.

Such initiatives would fit perfectly with the Chinese government’s ambition to improve care at the grassroots level to counter congestion in city hospitals. More widespread adoption of AI technologies should go hand in hand with investments in primary care facilities and Internet connectivity in rural areas—making health care more equally accessible and affordable and allowing people to enjoy a better quality of life close to their communities.

Looking further ahead, AI could also become pivotal in addressing lifestyle-related diseases such as obesity—a major health concern that affects about one in eight people in China. Imagine people with high risk of obesity getting bespoke lifestyle tips via their smartphone. On a population level, data analyses could inform public interventions targeted at specific age groups or geographic areas. As the Chinese government has outlined in its plans for a “Healthy China 2030,” the focus of the health care system will increasingly shift from treatment to prevention.

A Call for CollaborationHow to accelerate this journey toward more efficient, accessible and preventative care?

First, building a more robust data ecosystem should be top priority. The quality of AI is only as good as the quality of the data fed into it. China’s health care system would benefit from shared data standards, interoperability of systems, and improved data exchange protected by top-notch security measures. The establishment of three national digital databases with health information by 2020 is an important step in this direction.

Second, data-driven approaches such as AI will only have the desired impact when combined with proven medical expertise. AI is only part of any solution; it is never a solution by itself. A deep understanding of the clinical context is indispensable. Any form of AI-assisted care must be centered on the physician and the patient, taking their needs as a starting point and building on the wealth of human knowledge that is already available.

Third, AI-enabled tools must be rigorously tested against the highest regulatory standards. In health care, where lives are at stake, we need to deploy new technologies wisely and carefully. Only with proper clinical validation can we ensure responsible, safe and effective use of AI. Physicians as well as patients also require education on a tool’s strengths and limitations.

Fourth, collaboration between academia, startups, and established companies is of paramount importance. The challenges in China’s health care system are simply too big for any player to address it alone. In this light, it is encouraging that the Chinese government has recently founded a collaborative platform to promote the exchange of ideas and kick-start new projects in intelligent medicine.

Finally, to ensure we are creating a future-ready health care system in China, we must address the shortage of talent at the intersection of medicine and data science. We should nurture and invest in developing people who combine medical know-how with a firm understanding of AI and other technologies. Ultimately, the sustainability of China’s health care system may lie in their hands.

Trump’s Trade War Is Making Russia and China Comrades Again

Facing U.S. sanctions and tariffs, Moscow and Beijing are finding lots of common ground.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin toast with vodka during a signing ceremony on May 21, 2014, in Shanghai. Russia and China signed a 30-year contract for supply of gas.
Photographer: Sasha Mordovets/Getty ImagesFu Ying recalls vividly how, as a young woman, she’d get woken by sirens in the middle of the night for drills to practice for a Soviet invasion. It was the time of China’s traumatic Cultural Revolution and, although the farm she’d been sent to was more than 200 miles from the border, the threat seemed imminent—strong enough, it turned out, to throw Maoist China into the arms of its capitalist nemesis, the U.S.

Today’s world could hardly look more different. The U.S.-China realignment that began with President Richard Nixon’s 1972 visit to Beijing has been reversed in the most consequential geopolitical shift since the fall of the Berlin Wall. China and Russia are now as close as at any time in their 400 years of shared history. The U.S., meanwhile, has targeted both countries with sanctions and China with a trade war.

“There is no sense of threat from Russia. We feel comfortable back-to-back,” says Fu, now chairwoman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of China’s National People’s Congress, over drinks in a hotel bar near the Black Sea resort of Sochi, where she’s attending a conference. The two countries have settled the border dispute that produced a brief war in 1969.

She’s less sure about the U.S. In a speech last month, Vice President Mike Pence said the U.S. was responding to “Chinese aggression” with military spending and trade tariffs. Beijing, he said, was expanding at the expense of others and trying to drive the U.S. from the western Pacific. That kind of talk won’t be easy to forget, even if Trump and Xi agree to a trade truce at a scheduled meeting at the end of November. “I just hope that if some people in the U.S. insist on dragging us down the hill into Thucydides’ trap, China will be smart enough not to follow,” Fu says, referring to the ancient historian’s observation that rising and established powers tend to end up at war.

Even without bloodshed, this reconfiguration of the nuclear and economic superpowers is significant. Chinese investment and energy purchases make it easier for Russia to resist economic pressure over Ukraine; Russian sales of oil, missile defense systems, and jets are changing U.S. calculations in the Pacific by raising the potential cost of any future showdown with China.

Coordination in the United Nations Security Council allows the two Eurasian powers to frustrate U.S. goals and support each other’s. Nor is the U.S. the only one affected. India, which for decades relied on Russia to help balance China and Pakistan, is deeply concerned that Moscow is falling under Beijing’s sway. Russia already supplies the engines for Chinese-Pakistani fighter jets. “India needs a reconciliation between the West and Russia” to squeeze China’s strategic space, says C. Raja Mohan, director of the Institute of South Asian Studies at the National University of Singapore.

Western analysts and leaders for a long time dismissed the Sino-Russian rapprochement and its trappings—such as the NATO-lite Shanghai Cooperation Organization—as a “marriage of convenience,” doomed to fail by geography, history, and a growing disparity in strength. And the economic relationship still lags far behind the political rhetoric.

But complacency has given way to alarm. A recent study by the National Bureau of Asian Research, a Seattle-based think tank, debated whether U.S. policy was at fault for driving Russia and China together and asked if the U.S. should correct course by accommodating one Eurasian giant to isolate the other. Some among the 100-plus participants called for Washington to prepare for the worst-case scenario the realignment implies: a two-front war.

Robert Sutter, the study’s principal investigator, said at an October panel to discuss the findings that he’s had a big change of heart since he wrote in a U.S. government National Intelligence Estimate that the Russia-China relationship was an axis of convenience. “The situation is pretty bleak for the United States,” Sutter said. “And there is no easy way to fix it.”

The bromance between Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping is certainly hard to miss. They meet with each other more than with any other world leaders, have awarded each other medals, and even cooked blinis and noodles together for their respective state TV channels. Joint military exercises are routine. This year, China took delivery of Russia’s most advanced S-400 air-defense system and Sukhoi SU-35 fighter aircraft, a level of trust that’s likely to thwart U.S. national security adviser John Bolton’s recent attempt to convince Moscow it faces a security threat from the East.

China has become Russia’s biggest single trade partner, even if it remains far behind the European Union as a bloc. Russia displaced Saudi Arabia as China’s top supplier of crude oil in 2015. A new pipeline, Power of Siberia, is due to start delivering as much as 38 billion cubic meters (1.3 trillion cubic feet) of natural gas per year to northern China in December 2019. Chinese entities own 30 percent of Russia’s new Yamal liquefied natural gas project in the Arctic. Russia and China have nonconflicting security concerns—in the Pacific for China and in the former Soviet bloc and Middle East for Russia. At the same time they perceive a common threat (the U.S.) and a shared goal of changing what both see as an American-dominated global order.

Their economies also are complementary: China is the world’s biggest manufacturer, and Russia is among the largest exporters of energy and raw materials. China has a shortage of arable land, and Russia a surfeit. Even their demography offers opportunities. China has a majority of men, whereas Russia has the opposite. “I could see that there are many more men in China, and people started to ask me if I could help them to find women,” says Pavel Stepanets, who started a Beijing-based matchmaking service, Meilishka, six months ago. The company website claims to have 244 “Slav girls looking for a Chinese husband.”

Russian analysts and officials say they aren’t pivoting east as much as they’re diversifying their economic and security relationships. Europe and China “are two independent destinations and two independent routes” for gas and oil, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said in an October interview. “We do not see any need to redirect volumes.”

What the new eastbound pipelines will do, according to Vasily Kashin, a senior research fellow at Moscow’s Higher School of Economics, is to make Russia about 60 percent—down from 90 percent—dependent on European markets. They’ll also make China less vulnerable to a potential U.S. sea blockade should there be conflict over Taiwan. “Every pipeline project is negotiated for a decade and then built for a decade,” Kashin says. “But once it’s completed, you have an irreversible geopolitical change.”

The new geopolitical infrastructure is slowly falling into place. In January, Russia doubled its capacity to pipe crude oil to China, to about 600,000 barrels per day. In addition to the Power of Siberia project, negotiations to build two other natural gas pipelines connecting China to Siberian fields are advancing well, Novak says.

The reconciliation began with the last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev. Even so, U.S. and Western policies since 2014 have done a lot to accelerate the Russian-Chinese rapprochement, according to Angela Stent, director of Georgetown University’s Center for Eurasian, Russian & East European Studies. Take natural gas. South Stream, a pipeline project to carry 63 billion cubic meters per year from Russia to Austria, was under construction when the European Parliament voted to block it in April 2014, a month after Russia annexed Crimea. One month after that, Russia broke the deadlock in its decade-long negotiation with China to build Power of Siberia, part of a gas purchase deal valued at about $400 billion. “It would behoove the U.S. to consider how much further to go with sanctions on Russia and how far with a China trade war,” Stent says at the same conference near Sochi as Fu.

The courtship hasn’t been easy. There was deep disappointment within Russia when China didn’t immediately flood the country with investment after 2014. Instead, it appeared to take advantage of Moscow’s weak position to get cheaper gas. Nor have the reasons for skepticism about the strength and durability of the partnership disappeared. Chinese nationalists still talk about the 230,000 square miles Russia took in the 19th century under what Beijing considers unequal treaties. And Russia was at first wary of China’s “ Belt and Road” initiative, which seemed to compete with its plans for a Eurasian Economic Union. Putin and Xi have parked both issues (they agreed in 2015 to coordinate their Central Asian strategies), but competition could reemerge.

Even when the two countries were allies, in the 1950s, it was an unhappy—because unequal—partnership. When Mao Zedong came to Moscow in December 1949, Stalin kept the leader of newly communist China waiting 17 days for a second meeting, to make clear who was boss. “I came here to do more than eat and shit,” Mao complained bitterly.

Today the imbalance between the two powers has been reversed. China’s economy is six to eight times the size of Russia’s, depending on how it’s measured. “I don’t think a lot is happening” in terms of Chinese business investment, says Bruno Maçães, a senior fellow at Beijing’s Renmin University, who last year spent six months crisscrossing the region’s borders for a new book, The Dawn of Eurasia. In Southeast Asia, small Chinese businesses are highly visible as well as the big state companies, but not in Russia, Maçães says. More Chinese tourists are coming to Moscow, but it’s nothing like the throngs in Paris or New York. Visiting an island in the Amur River, which the governments have touted as a tourism zone, he found “a world from 40 years ago. To visit, I had to go through eight hours of security interviews.”

Russia’s Foreign Investment Advisory Council—chief executive officers from the 50 biggest foreign companies invested in Russia, who meet annually with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev—still has no member from China, says Alexander Ivlev, Ernst & Young LLP’s managing partner for Russia, who coordinates the event. Still, he rattles off a list of projects Putin and Xi have signed and sees his business’s future increasingly tied to China.

Measuring the true scope of Chinese investment in Russia isn’t easy. According to Russia’s central bank, the total as of December 2017 was only $4.5 billion, a misleading figure. (Cyprus, an offshore conduit for investment from around the world, had invested $175 billion.) In a February search of an Interfax database, Kashin found 5,868 companies with Chinese equity operating in Russia, registered everywhere from Moscow to Vladivostok. That’s a higher number than for German companies (although those tend to be bigger and better established).

It may be that the Chinese are coming but are held back by the same adverse conditions deterring other investors: a sluggish economy, a weak currency, sanctions risk, and tight monetary policies that have dried up credit. That was the experience of Yema Group Co., a trading company in Xinjiang province. It set up operations in Russia in 2012 to break into the market for heavy construction machinery, dominated by more expensive European suppliers. Initially, Yema sold about 500 excavators, trucks, and other pieces a year, says Du Xuemei, a spokeswoman. “We withdrew most of our operations team in 2016, because of an economic downturn and the depreciation of the ruble,” says Du, adding that the company wants to return.

Back in Sochi, Fu draws a series of triangles on a piece of paper to show how the relationship between Russia, China, and the U.S. has changed. “This one is going to be shorter and shorter,” she says, running her pen over the line connecting Russia to China. It’s a friendship that wasn’t caused by the U.S., isn’t aimed at it, and won’t end if the U.S. alters its policies, she says. Then the Chinese legislator marks the ever more distant locations for the triangle’s American apex. “The U.S. can be here, here, or here,” she says. “It’s your choice.”With Peter Martin, Dandan Li, and Annmarie Hordern

          The GOP is persecuting voters instead of protecting them      Cache   Translate Page      

Attorney General Jeff Sessions would like everyone to know that the Department of Justice will totally enforce federal voting rights laws on Election Day. The catch is, he’ll only be sending Civil Rights Division personnel to 35 jurisdictions across 19 states. Few counties previously subject to pre-clearance requirements under the Voting Rights Act—a status conferred as a result of a history of voter suppression—will be covered. Sessions’s real focus is on “voter fraud.”

Until 2013, Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia had to run voting changes by DOJ. But this year only four jurisdictions each will be monitored in Alaska and Arizona. It’s three in Texas and just two in Georgia. Virginia’s getting help in just one jurisdiction. Not a single jurisdiction in either Carolina made the cut, nor any in Alabama, Mississippi, or Louisiana. 

DOJ is sending civil rights staff to California and Florida, some counties of which were covered under the VRA, but not to the counties with a history of voter suppression. Similarly, though a South Dakota county made the list, it’s not one of the two counties in that state that previously had to get pre-clearance.

Sessions’ Election Day plan is just the latest signal that the Justice Department is focused on persecuting voters, not protecting them. They’re taking the cue from the White House: Trump’s actively practicing voter intimidation.

x

On Oct. 30, DOJ announced that it would be working with U.S. Attorneys’ offices and the FBI to combat “election fraud.” Per its release, that includes “vote buying, multiple voting, submission of fraudulent ballots or registrations, alteration of votes, and malfeasance by election officials.” 

Not even the Heritage Foundation’s “Election Fraud” database spanning 20-odd years, created to gin up concern about voter fraud, suggests that voter fraud is a significant problem. The Brennan Center has put the work in to debunk it altogether. One fun fact: A person’s more likely to be struck by lightning than to try to impersonate someone else at the polls.


          History, Trump and partisan bitterness collide in Georgia      Cache   Translate Page      
ATLANTA – Voters in one of the nation's most closely watched governor's races cast ballots Tuesday amid an ongoing dispute about one of the candidates' management of Georgia's elections system, leaving open the possibility that the loser may not accept the outcome.

Republican Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams are meeting in one of the signature contests of the 2018 midterm elections, with potential outcomes ranging from the election of America's first black woman governor to another four weeks of bitter, race-laden campaigning.

Adding to the Election Day drama, widespread reports of technical malfunctions and long lines at polling stations came in from across the state, with some voters reporting waits of up to three hours to cast ballots.

In Cobb County, just outside Atlanta, Nicole Whatley planned to vote for Abrams, partly because "of this whole social divisiveness that's been going on," she said, as she stood in line to vote outside a library in a cold rain Tuesday morning.

Whatley, 33, said she didn't appreciate how Kemp has adopted Trump's rhetoric on immigration.

"Kemp tried to play that Trump card to get where he's at," she said, adding that Abrams, by contrast, highlighted unity. "Her campaign spoke about partisanship and bringing people back together," Whatley said.

Her husband Lance Whatley, a 29-year-old software engineer, was leaning toward voting for Kemp as he waited. "It might be a game-time decision for me when I get in the voting booth," he said.

Abrams, a 44-year-old Atlanta attorney, former lawmaker and moonlighting romance novelist would be the first black woman in American history elected governor in any state and the first woman or nonwhite governor in Georgia history. She's already made history as the first black woman to be a major party gubernatorial nominee.

Kemp, a 54-year-old businessman and veteran secretary of state is vying to maintain the GOP's hold on a state that is nearing presidential battleground status courtesy of its growth and diversity. Republicans have won every Georgia governor's race since 2002.

Ballot access and election integrity flared up in the final weekend after a private citizen alerted the Georgia Democratic Party and a private attorney of potential vulnerability in the online voter database Kemp that oversees in his current job as secretary of state. Those private communications ended up with Kemp announcing, without providing any evidence, that he was launching an investigation into Georgia Democrats for "possible cybercrimes."

Kemp pushed back Monday against concerns that his call for an investigation is politically motivated.

But Abrams would have none of that, declaring Kemp a "bald-faced liar" intent on deflecting attention from security problems with his system.

Both nominees frame it as no less than a battle for Georgia's soul, a contest so intense that early voting has approached the overall number of ballots cast in the governor's race four years ago. Georgia law requires a majority to win, so the presence of a Libertarian on the ballot could yield a Dec. 4 runoff.

"I've never seen a time where the state of Georgia had more at stake than we do in this contest," Kemp told supporters at one of his final campaign stops.

In the closing days, Kemp basked in President Donald Trump's glow, after a Sunday rally that drew thousands of boisterous Republicans to central Georgia to see Trump deplane from Air Force One.

Abrams, meanwhile, continued as she has throughout her campaign noting the potential historical significance but arguing the contest should be about more.

"I don't want anyone to vote for me because I'm black," she told supporters in Savannah on Monday. "And no one on the ballot needs a vote because we're women. And I don't even want you to vote for us just because we're Democrats. You need to vote for us because we're better."

On policy, the principal dividing lines are health care (Abrams wants to expand Medicaid insurance; Kemp wants to maintain Georgia's refusal and boost rural hospitals); education (Kemp supports private school vouchers; Abrams opposes them); and criminal justice (Kemp is a law-and-order Republican; Abrams focuses on rehabilitating non-violent offenders and criticizes cash bail as unfair to poorer defendants).

But even the policy debates have played out as much as cultural identity battles as they have nuanced debates over policy details.

Abrams blasts Kemp as "an architect of voter suppression" for the way he's opted to enforce federal and state election laws. Kemp and other Republican groups have blasted Abrams as an extremist with backing from "socialists" who, in Kemp's estimation, "want to turn Georgia into California."

The Georgia outcome is among the most closely watched of any midterm contest for reasons beyond Abrams' race and gender. Democrats are expected to pick up several governor's seats across the country, particularly in the Midwest region that helped propel Trump to the White House in 2016. But flipping what has been a GOP stronghold like Georgia would signal a potential meaningful shift in the electorate and open up a new battleground ahead of 2020.

          A review of things you need to know before you go home on Tuesday; some more rate changes, used car sales dip, rents up in Auckland, Fonterra gets a terrier inside, Hisco pay revealed, swaps and NZD on hold, & more      Cache   Translate Page      

Here are the key things you need to know before you leave work today.

MORTGAGE RATE CHANGES
Housing NZ Corp. has trimmed most of its fixed rates.

TERM DEPOSIT RATE CHANGES
ICBC trimmed some term deposit rates today, and raised a handful - 6 months to 3.40% and one year to 3.50% being the most notable.

IMPROVED INTEREST RATE DATA
The RBNZ today released new tracking of retail interest rates for mortgages. The extended data reconciles to the statistical returns supplied to them from banks. See here and here. But they are still just 'simple averages' (unweighted). (The RBNZ does publish some weighted rate averages.) You can still get data by individual bank from us. (We also supply the RBNZ with our offer rate carded data.)

USED IMPORTS SELL SLOWER
In contrast to booming new car sales, the used import trade continues to struggle. Stink bug problems were thought to be the issue inhibiting the flow of imports. But the October data shows a long run tailing off of this source of new cars. There were 12,100 of these vehicles first registered here in October, a -14.3% drop on the same month a year ago. That makes it nine consecutive months of declines. The all-time peak came in November 2017 at 14,924.

STEADY STATE EXPECTED
Tomorrow Statistics NZ will report the September quarter labour force data and our unemployment rate is expected to come in at 4.4%, down from 4.5% in June. Our participation rate is expected to be unchanged at 70.9%. And we are expecting New Zealand payrolls to rise +12,800 from June. (That is a long way lower than the +55,000 payrolls rise in the September 2017 quarter.) (These estimates are the median levels in the Thompson Reuters survey of economists.) Average hourly earnings are expected to rise just +2.7% pa, and short of the +3.1% gain recorded in June. Variations from these expectations may not only affect our currency levels, but will also colour the RBNZ MPS which is due to be released on Thursday. No OCR change is expected then.

RENTS UP IN AUCKLAND
National median rent for a three bedroom house is unchanged in October from September at $450/week. But the Auckland median spiked higher to $660/week and +6.5% higher than a year ago. In Wellington the change over the year is much less at +3.5% to $590/week. In Christchurch the change is only +1.2% to $420/week. Rent growth for flats is lower in each centre. Data is from MBIE's rental bond database.

GUINEY WINS IN COMEBACK BID
Fonterra shareholders have elected some 'new' directors and they have given the company a hurry-up. Shareholders voted to elect Peter McBride and Leonie Guiney to the Board. Incumbent Director Ashley Waugh, Jamie Tuuta and John Nicholls were unsuccessful. You will recall that Leonie Guiney was previous kicked off the Fonterra board, and then slapped with a gag order. This time will be different?

HISCO PAY REVEALED
ANZ's annual report is out and you can find compensation details for all the ANZ Group senior people. That includes, ANZ NZ's David Hisco. Check from page 54. There you will find details in AU dollars. Almost all senior managers had reduced compensation in 2018, some with rather large falls mainly in the variable portion. All up, the top seven managers took home AU$8.6 mln in fixed pay, plus they earned (but may not have gotten access to) another AU$13.4 mln in variable pay. That was -AU$2.6 mln less than the previous year, a fall of -12%. In this group of manager's Hisco's totals get shifted around by the exchange rate when reported in AUD, so the change for him isn't all in NZD compensation. He is the third highest paid in this ANZ group, and seems to have suffered the smallest reduction (before currency valuation changes). The division he manages starred in the ANZ group. Overall, the compensation of these seven top managers accounts for 0.2% of the profits. All employee costs are equivalent to 47.8% of before-tax profit.

APPLE PAY TEAMS UP WITH FLEXIGROUP
FlexiGroup today launched Apple Pay. It is available to all Q Mastercard and Flight Centre Mastercard customers with an eligible Apple device and can be used wherever contactless payments are currently available in New Zealand. FlexiGroup's credit cards charge higher than bank credit card interest rates, by at least +2%.

SWAP RATES HOLD
Swap rates are up again today, but essentially only for terms over 4 years and only by +1 bp. The UST 10yr yield has held at 3.21%. The UST 2-10 curve is back under +29 bps. Other benchmark bond rates are all in lockstep. The Aussie Govt 10yr is at 2.74% (up +1 bp today), the China Govt 10yr is also up +1 bp at 3.56%, while the NZ Govt 10 yr is at 2.67%, up +1 bp too. The 90 day bank bill rate is up +2 bps at 1.96% and back to levels last seen on July 10, 2018.

BITCOIN STABLE
The bitcoin price is up marginally to US$6,443 and little changed since this morning.

NZD HOLDING
The NZD is holding at at 66.6 USc. On the cross rates we are little-changed at 92.4 AUc, and at 58.4 euro cents. That puts the TWI-5 at just on 70.9.

5 Tips to Help Nonprofits Stay GDPR-Compliant amy.burroughs_26341 Tue, 11/06/2018 - 08:22

Nonprofits in the United States may think that because the vast majority of their donors are in the U.S., the General Data Protection Regulation that went into effect in May doesn’t apply to them. The GDPR is a European Union law, but it does have ramifications for organizations here.

Tal Frankfurt, founder and CEO of Cloud for Good, says that even though U.S. nonprofits may not have any donors from the EU, it’s possible that EU citizens may have done some research on their website or signed up for an e-newsletter.

“It doesn’t have to be donor information,” Frankfurt says. “If a U.S. nonprofit stores any information about an EU resident, that EU resident has rights under GDPR.” 

Karl Hedstrom, IT director at the Nonprofit Technology Enterprise Network, an organization that works with nonprofits to improve their technology, says that as GDPR is deployed across the world, donors will grow to expect that U.S.-based nonprofits will comply. “Nonprofits will want to stay in the good graces of the donors,” he says.

Based on interviews with Frankfurt and Hedstrom, here are five GDPR tips for nonprofits.

MORE FROM BIZTECH: Find out how nonprofits can keep online donations safe!

1. Create Awareness of GDPR Among Your Nonprofit Staff

Get started, Frankfurt recommends, by bringing staff together to explain the basics of GDPR. Leaders should explain how the organization’s security and privacy policies need to change and make sure people leave the meeting understanding that they are responsible for protecting the client’s data.

2. Review Privacy Policies That May Affect Nonprofit Donors

Take a look at how the organization explains its privacy policies on its website and e-newsletter. The organization should develop a clear opt-in policy and use clear language about the cookies it collects when users visit the website or apply to receive the e-newsletter. Many of the recent cookie notices that users may have seen as they browse websites are a response to comply with GDPR. 

3. Decide How the Nonprofit Will Anonymize Data

Under GDPR, clients have what’s known as “the right to be forgotten,” which means that if a client asks for anonymity, the organization must delete or “anonymize” the data. NTEN’s Hedstrom says many organizations will choose to anonymize data, which in most cases will mean they will assign a number to a client as opposed to retaining their name in the database. With this approach, the nonprofit still has access to transaction data but the donor stays anonymous. 

4. Rethink How the Organization Manages Its Systems

Cloud for Good’s Frankfurt says that when nonprofits do start to anonymize data, many will have a major challenge ahead of them. Many organizations have separate systems for the newsletter, online donations, a donor management system, program management and even volunteer management, he says. When a client asks to anonymize data, the nonprofit might have to execute the request multiple times. As a result, Frankfurt encourages nonprofits to use GDPR as an opportunity to integrate these disparate systems. Moving forward, staffers won’t have to look in different places for information about a donor, and the integration will make it easier for organizations to comply when donors request to be forgotten. 

5. Look at GDPR as an Opportunity, Not an Obstacle

Cloud for Good’s Frankfurt says that U.S. nonprofits should see GDPR as an opportunity to revamp how the organization handles data and privacy. It can also present a valuable opportunity to re-engage with donors the nonprofit hasn’t had contact with in a long time, he says. Nonprofits should send out an email to donors on their list explaining their rights under GDPR and finish by asking them how the organization can more effectively serve them.

NIST Creates New Guidelines for Managing Privileged Accounts Elizabeth_Neus_pdwC Mon, 11/05/2018 - 13:58

Developed with industry partners, government draft guidelines for privileged account management are already being used in the financial sector to harden defenses against cyberattacks and misuse.

The draft guidelines from the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence, part of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, are available for public comment until Nov. 30, but are solid enough that organizations can take advantage of them now, said two of the publication’s authors.

“We view it as a how-to guide,” says Harry Perper, a cybersecurity engineer for the NCCoE and co-author of the guidelines. “You can apply it in whatever way makes sense in your organization, in each organization, because every organization is different.”

How Organizations Can Effectively Manage Privileged Accounts

The draft guidelines outline a system that organizations can use to manage privileged accounts, which can be difficult to control and frequently have little oversight — those who control the accounts by definition have broader access and authority than the average user. 

Such accounts are “often described as the ‘keys to the kingdom,’” the guidelines’ executive summary notes. These can include accounts that permit the transfer of funds, that contain personally identifiable information on employees or are simply the passwords to a company’s social media page.

“I daresay we all have accounts that have high-value data that you would want privileged access only to it,” says Karen Waltermire, an NCCoE cybersecurity engineer and lead author. “We don’t dictate what is considered privileged.”

NCCoE’s draft guidelines apply to nearly any sector, Waltermire says, “but we focused on financial services because privileged account management there is mature, and they’re a very aware sector.”

The draft guidelines were developed in collaboration with financial service industry experts and technology companies, such as RSA and Splunk, and tested in a hybrid virtual/physical space. 

Implementing the privileged access management (PAM) solution involves adding a new layer of security between the users and the accounts; organizations can also read scenarios that outline the challenges presented by privileged access accounts and propose solutions.

Put Privileged Access Management into Practice

In one scenario, a company develops a new app that needs access to a database. The directory administrator — who may be one of several people with privileged access — adds the app via a shared account, but there’s no record of which admin made that change or how.

A PAM solution for this would include strong authentication procedures, possibly even changing the password after each session, so that if mistakes are made, they can be more easily investigated without having to search through logs or rely on administrators’ memories.

The solutions are designed to work with a company’s available resources and not with any specific products, Waltermire says, even though they were developed with the assistance of specific commercial partners. 

“We make these practice guides modular so that it is a solution, not the solution,” she says. “So you would be able to read the document and swap out Cisco for Juniper if your organization already has Juniper.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

Back to the Static Future

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Glue in the Cloud

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

last week

Gaming time

Over a month ago I decided to make some changes that were intended to reduce the amount of time I waste on time-demanding (and perhaps not so enjoyable) games. This week I took a few minutes to see how I've been getting on.

The time I spent playing games (I think this is all time-sucking games with a few minutes here and there - I haven't played a "proper" computer game in ages) over the last few months:

July: 11 hours, 46 minutes August: 13 hours, 18 minutes September: 9 hours, 10 minutes (changes made towards the end) October: 4 hours, 49 minutes

So it's gone down, by quite a lot. But I still spent nearly 5 hours chasing time limited bonuses, taking part in time limited contests and recharging/rebuilding some numbers in a database!

I want to get back to gaming that builds reactions and skills (yes, they might only be skills at a game but it's better than repeated drudgery where you inevitably do better because you've upgraded things - a few minutes here and there really not being enough to build a skill anyway). Or maybe even gaming with other real people who you can speak to afterwards!

Exhausting meetings

Another week with a lot of time spent in phone and physical meetings. These seem to take so much energy, especially the physical meetings - I'm always exhausted by the time I get back. The meetings were mostly for consultancy clients this week and they've come with a lot of required background thinking and planning, which probably hasn't helped my feeling of tiredness. Unfortunately it also means there's going to be a lot of writing in next weeks schedule.

php (WordPress) development environment

I don't do much in PHP but this week I've ended up building two development/testing environments for WordPress related things.

One was just for a one-time test to work out how (if) a data migration from Magento to Woocommerce would work. For this I used the super simple Scotch Box which provided all the basics. Then I copied over a couple of databases (with mysqldump, etc) and copied the website files - that was it, a working and easily disposable testing environment. The Magento to Woocommerce migration seemed to work quite well too!

The second environment was for actual, and ongoing, development. My PaTMa blog is using WordPress and I'm working on a custom theme so that I can make it more consistent with the application site. Then my intention is to also use WordPress for the marketing site for PaTMa, leaving just the actual application as a Django based bespoke site. I've previously played with the Vagrant approach for this too, but it felt a bit heavier/slower than I wanted. Thankfully it didn't take long to find (be reminded of really) PHP's built-in web server , work out a few PHP dependencies (I already have MySQL installed on my main dev machine) and make use of the excellent WP-CLI to make an empty WordPress site all ready for some theme development.

In case it's useful to anyone, here's what I actually did:

sudo apt install php7.2-cli php-mysql curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/wp-cli/builds/gh-pages/phar/wp-cli.phar -o wp chmod +x wp mkdir test-wp cd test-wp ../wp core download ../wp core config --dbname=test_wp --dbuser=root --dbpass=root --dbhost=localhost ../wp db create ../wp core install --url=http://localhost:8000 --title=Test --admin_user=admin --admin_password=password --admin_email=admin@example.com php -S localhost:8000

Then point a browser at http://localhost:8000/ to see a basic, default WordPress site.

One final step for me was linking my development theme into this new WordPress install:

cd wp-content/themes ln -s ../../../my-theme

I then logged in as admin and activated my development theme, all ready for work.

Bricks and Blocks

Saturday included a visit to a Bricks and Blocks event that the local scout group ran. I was quite surprised by how large the event was; there were a lot of great things on display including an infinite (ie circular) ball-run made entirely from Lego and a Robot Wars stall. The Robot Wars display included several full size robots, including one being demo'd; plus a mini arena with mini robots for the "children" to try out. The range of Lego was also impressive with all sorts from town to Star Wars to the new Harry Potter. Even the ancient Fabuland had a stall, much to the delight of our youngest (who's a fan of some Fabuland books I still have).

Uneventful budget

Having set aside my Monday afternoon to watch the budget - so I could react quickly and get any changes required for the buy-to-let profit calculations , I was quite pleased it was pretty bored, especially on the landlord and property front.

Property

I had a great chat with Susannah Cole from The Good Property Company - some fantastic insights.


          Form generation with Symfony 2&period;8 throws a Twig&lowbar;Error ...      Cache   Translate Page      

Since the last LTS version of Symfony was released few days ago (30.11.2015) I started playing with it. Unfortunately I can't generate a CRUD with write actions with the same code that works fine in Symfony 2.7.7.

First I create a new Symfony project using the bash under linux Mint 17.2:

symfony new tasks lts

The new directory tasks gets created with a new Symfony 2.8.0 project inside.

After adapting the database credentials in app/config/parameters.yml I create the database:

app/console doctrine:database:create

and generate a new bundle:

app/console generate:bundle --namespace=Acme/TasksBundle --format=yml

Then I create a new directory src/Acme/TasksBundle/Resources/config/doctrine and place two files for my models inside. These are:

Task.orm.yml

Acme\TasksBundle\Entity\Task: type: entity repositoryClass: Acme\TasksBundle\Repository\TaskRepository table: task id: id: type: integer generator: { strategy : AUTO } fields: description: type: text manyToMany: tags: targetEntity: Tag inversedBy: tasks cascade: [ "persist" ] joinTable: name: task_tag joinColumns: task_id: referencedColumnName: id inverseJoinColumns: tag_id: referencedColumnName: id

Tag.orm.yml

Acme\TasksBundle\Entity\Tag: type: entity repositoryClass: Acme\TasksBundle\Repository\TagRepository table: tag id: id: type: integer generator: { strategy : AUTO } fields: name: type: string length: 50 manyToMany: tasks: targetEntity: Task mappedBy: tags

The database schema should like this:

+----------------+ +--------------+ | task | | task_tag | +---------+ +----------------+ +--------------+ | tag | | id |<--->| task_id | +---------+ | description | | tag_id |<--->| id | +----------------+ +--------------+ | name | +---------+

Now I can generate the entities:

app/console generate:doctrine:entities AcmeTasksBundle

This works fine, so the database can be updated:

app/console doctrine:schema:update --force

Everything ok till now. The tables are in the database. Now I want to generate CRUD with write actions:

app/console generate:doctrine:crud --entity=AcmeTasksBundle:Task --with-write --format=yml

After confirming few questions it generates the CRUD and prints out:

Generating the CRUD code: OK

and afterwards throws this error:

[Twig_Error_Runtime] Key "tags" for array with keys "id, description" does not exist in "form/FormType.php.twig" at line 29

The controller gets created, but not the form.

Generating the CRUD without write options works fine. The very same code works flawlessly with Symfony 2.7.7.

I checked the differences in the file form/FormType.php.twig between the versions and here are the relevant parts:

Symfony 2.7.7

vendor/sensio/generator-bundle/Sensio/Bundle/GeneratorBundle/Resources/skeleton/form/FormType.php.twig

{%- if fields|length > 0 %} /** * @param FormBuilderInterface $builder * @param array $options */ public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options) { $builder {%- for field in fields %} ->add('{{ field }}') {%- endfor %} ; } {% endif %}

Symfony 2.8.0

vendor/sensio/generator-bundle/Resources/skeleton/form/FormType.php.twig

{%- if fields|length > 0 %} /** * @param FormBuilderInterface $builder * @param array $options */ public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options) { $builder {%- for field in fields -%} {%- if fields_mapping[field]['type'] in ['date', 'time', 'datetime'] %} ->add('{{ field }}', '{{ fields_mapping[field]['type'] }}') {%- else %} ->add('{{ field }}') {%- endif -%} {%- endfor %} ; } {% endif %} As I see the if condition in the for loop is the place where the error occurs. (I assume that the expression fields_mapping[field]['type'] causes the problem since the many to many field ( tag ) has no attribute type .)

What I am doing wrong? How can I solve this problem? Thank you very much for your help.

EDIT: The same problem occurs with Symfony 3.0.0. The file form/FormType.php.twig has been changed since version 2.8.

Looks like a regression after datetime fix in the generator bundle.

A quick solution is to revert to v2.* in your composer.json :

"sensio/generator-bundle": "^2.5",

The best solution is to fork the repo, fix the bug and create a pull request to contribute back to the community.

Since you already did all the job to isolate the bug, the fix is trivial: check if type exists in Resources/skeleton/form/FormType.php.twig . Something like

{%- if fields_mapping[field]['type'] is defined and fields_mapping[field]['type'] in ['date', 'time', 'datetime'] %}

unless the bug masks more hidden errors based on the same assumption.

  • Samsung Electronics president Young Sohn told Business Insider that he worries about the ethics of artificial intelligence. "I think we should really worry about ethics. What is right? What is wrong?" he told us.
  • "We've got to be principle-driven" he says. "But research for purpose, not for using that data to take advantage of all human beings."
  • Nonetheless, Sohn envisions a world where vast amounts of personal health and DNA data are stored online for use by AI-driven software. 

LISBON — Samsung Electronics president Young Sohn today sketched an almost dystopian future in which every detail of your life — all the way down to your individual DNA — is tracked by vast "bio data banks" that store your genome, help diagnose diseases, offer prognoses, and assist with disease prevention.

The databases will be part of an explosion of data-based businesses that will know almost everything about you, in a world of "sensor pervasiveness." Data sensors will provide fantastically granular detail in tracking your blood, your car, your food, the temperature of your home, and use artificial intelligence to inform maps and public transportation, he said.

Historia do OSM

O que é o OpenStreetMap? O OpenStreetMap (OSM) é um projeto que pretende construir um mapa livre de todo o mundo. Milhares de membros estão reunidos para criar um mapa preciso, detalhado e atualizado que é tão bom ou melhor que alternativas comerciais. Como a Wikipédia, o OpenStreetMap se beneficia da entrada de dados de milhares de pessoas ao redor do mundo.

O que tem nos mapas? Ao redor do mundo, a comunidade do OSM coleta dados sobre estradas, ferrovias, ruas, rios e até mesmo ciclovias. Além das vias dos meios de transporte que são mapeados, também são coletados dados sobre tudo que encontramos nas ruas, como estabelecimentos, prédios (privados e públicos), estacionamentos, parques, uso da terra, recursos culturais e facilidades de recreação. Existem mais de 43 categorias e centenas de tipos individuais de dados que estão sendo coletados. Por exemplo, se você precisa encontrar um posto de gasolina perto do local aonde está, provavelmente ele está marcado num mapa no OSM.

Como os dados são coletados? Os dados são coletados para o OpenStreetMap de diversas formas. Ruas e estradas podem ser mapeadas traçando imagens de satélite (diversas organizações provêm dados para o OSM) ou usando aparelhos GPS para gravar uma rota. Também são importados dados de uma grande variedade de banco de dados com licença pública. Nos Estados Unidos, por exemplo, dados sobre as ruas foram importados do banco de dados TIGER do Census Bureau (o IBGE de lá) e foram usados como ponto de partida para o mapa. E, talvez o mais importante, participantes do OSM caminham ou dirigem pelas ruas, gravando tudo, de cafeterias a pontos de ônibus a banheiros públicos para adicionar aos mapas, tornando-o mais rico. Finalmente, os membros não precisam necessariamente ter um aparelho GPS para participar; é possível contribuir simplesmente corrigindo um nome de rua ou adicionando uma escola que está em suas redondezas. Além de extenso, o banco de dados por trás dos mapas do OSM é de alta qualidade. Em outros mapas, as ruas podem não estar precisamente alinhadas, trilhas no interior podem estar faltando e características importantes para alguns usuários (como ciclovias, por exemplo) são ignoradas. Além disso, outros mapas podem incluir 'ruas de armadilha' não existentes, com o objetivo de pegar no flagra copiadores ilícitos, uma prática conhecida como Copyright Easter Eggs. Entretanto, os dados do OSM são revistos e corrigidos por dezenas de contribuidores, especialmente em áreas urbanas, eles são livres para corrigir quaisquer erros que encontrarem.

Porque enfatizar que o OSM é livre? Existem diversos mapas grátis na Internet. Entretanto, eles são livres apenas para visualização, não para a utilização dos dados em uma aplicação, como em seu próprio website. O OpenStreetMap, por outro lado, permite que qualquer pessoa utilize o mapa e todo o banco de dados livremente, inclusive com propósitos comerciais. Os dados estão disponibilizados sob a licença livre Creative Commons Atribuição-Compartilhamento pela mesma licença 2.0.

O OpenStreetMap é um projeto onde qualquer pessoa pode participar e entrar informações cartográficas. Mais do que isso, aqueles que tem um maior conhecimento técnico podem criar ou melhorar os programas utilizados no OpenStreetMap e extender a documentação. Outros podem ajudar a organizar o projeto ou divulgar o projeto em sua região. O mais importante, para muitos, são as mapping parties (festivais de mapeamento) realizados em diversas áreas por todo o mundo onde os membros se reúnem para coletar dados, subir para o sistema e socializar. Alguns dizem que a maior motivação é que eles podem ver o mapa crescendo diariamente, enquanto outros admitem livremente que consideram mapear um hobby viciante. Quaisquer que sejam as motivações, algo que está claro para os membros é que contribuir com o OSM é divertido.

Crescimento A comunidade do OpenStreetMap cresce cerca de 10% por mês. No começo de 2008 o OSM tinha 20.000 membros, mas em dezembro de 2008 já eram 80.000. A marca de 200.000 voluntários foi atingida em janeiro de 2010, e atualmente há mais de 500.000 usuários registrados. Desse número, 10% estão permanentemente contribuindo. A Alemanha e o Reino Unido são os países com as maiores comunidades locais, mas há grupos de usuários por todo o mundo.

Cobertura Ao redor do mundo, diversos países tem mapas de qualidade igual ou superior a alternativas comerciais, como é o caso da Alemanha, Reino Unido e Estados Unidos, dentre outros. No Brasil, ainda não chegamos nesse patamar - as maiores cidades constam ainda não tem mapas "completos", contendo apenas o centro da cidade e regiões mais ricas. Por outro lado, cidades de interior que são ignoradas por provedores de mapas comerciais são mapeadas por colaboradores que vivem nessas cidades. Além disso, o mapa do OpenStreetMap tem características que não são encontradas em outros mapas, como ciclovias, trilhas, dentre outros.

De uma maneira geral, a medida que a nossa comunidade cresce, nós consertamos áreas em branco no mapa e pintamos novas ruas. É possível que uma área em branco visitada hoje esteja completamente mapeada em um ou dois meses.

Por outro lado, Como o OpenStreetMap é um sistema aberto, o mapa nunca será 'completo', uma vez que sempre podem ser adicionados detalhes sobre os prédios, pontos de interesse, etc. Mesmo a rede de estradas não é estática, muda continuamente. Sempre há muito o que fazer.

Atualizações Novos dados e mudança aparecem em minutos no mapa. A velocidade dessas atualizações faz com que mapear com OSM seja muito melhor do que todos os outros competidores. Dessa forma, novos prédios, construções, ruas bloqueadas etc. podem ser imediatamente visualizadas.

Como o OpenStreetMap funciona? Em áreas em que não há nenhum dado no banco de dados do OSM, você pode criar um esqueleto de estradas com um aparelho GPS, caminhando ou dirigindo pelas ruas na região, enquanto o dispositivo registra a sua posição. Uma bicicleta é muito útil, para áreas residenciais e no campo. Os mapeadores tomam nota sobre o nome das ruas, telefones públicos, parquinhos, todo o tipo de equipamento ou estabelecimento encontrado nas ruas. Dentre as ferramentas, a clássica dupla papel e caneta, mas também gravadores de áudio, câmeras fotográficas, celulares etc. Cada um tem o seu favorito. In areas that have no data in the OSM-database, you create a skeleton of roads etc. With a GPS unit, you walk or drive along a way within the area, while the device logs your position. A bicycle is very useful, for residential areas as well as within the woods. The mappers take notes of road names, public telephones, playgrounds and so on. Tools are classic pen&paper but also Dictaphone, digicams etc. Everybody has their own favorite.

A trilha gravada está armazenada no seu aparelho GPS. Esse dado bruto pode ser subido para o projeto, mas elas não viram ruas automaticamente! Nós temos que fazer esse passo manualmente (chamado mapeamento), usando nossas ferramentas como o JOSM, Potlatch ou Merkaartor. Esse processo desenhar sobre o mapa lembra aqueles livros infantis de ligar os pontos até formar uma figura. Aqui nós simplificamos a trilha (uma rua reta é gravada por centenas ou milhares de pontos de acordo com a precisão do GPS, nós simplificamos para dois pontos e uma reta). Fazemos uma abstração.

Agora a rua é representada por uma série de linhas (vetores). Você pode adicionar 'tags' ou etiquetas a elas. Primeiramente, o nome é o mais importante, então adicionamos uma etiqueta que o representa: (name=Avenida Rio Branco). Depois adicionamos etiquetas com outras características, por exemplo o tipo de rua, se é uma via expressa ou rua residencial, ciclovia, se é mão única ou mão dupla, e por aí vai. O repositório de características/etiquetas é realmente enorme, mas os colaboradores lembram as mais frequentes após algum treino, mas não é preciso decorá-las, uma vez que os editores as preenchem com alguns cliques.

Os dados recentemente confeccionados agora podem ser transferidos para o projeto e passam a estar imediatamente acessíveis para todos. Agora outros podem visualizá-los, corrigi-los e melhorá-los. Passo a passo esses dados se tornam mais e mais precisos e você pode ver o mapa crescendo, o que é uma motivação para fazer parte desse processo.

Dados vs. Mapa Na realidade, o OpenStreetMap não um mapa, mas um banco de dados. Nele, nós gravamos todos os objetos individuais, que irão aparecer no mapa após passarem por um processo chamado renderização. Ressaltamos a diferença pois com um mesmo conjunto de dados podemos gerar mapas com propósitos específicos, como o OpenCycleMap, um mapa para ciclistas, além de poder exportar os dados para aparelhos GPS (de carro, por exemplo) e utilizá-los em aplicações diversas que necessitam de acesso aos dados geográficos brutos, como criação de rotas. Origem dos dados Além de ter dados obtidos através de aparelhos GPS, é possível contribuir com o projeto com dados de outras origens. Por exemplo, temos um acordo com o Yahoo! e com a Microsoft e podemos utilizar imagem de satélite deles para traçar ruas, áreas verdes, prédios e afins.

Em alguns casos, informações externas podem ser importadas diretamente, um processo que não é tecnicamente simples, mas que adiciona valor ao mapa imediatamente. Por exemplo, na cidade do Rio de Janeiro foram importados dados do Instituto Pereira Passos sobre os bairros, escolas municipais e delegacias, reservas ambientais e favelas, dentre outros.

Um banco de dados, milhares de mapas, infinitas possibilidades

Como oferecemos dados brutos, provedores comerciais podem utilizar os dados do OpenStreetMap. Isto não é proibido pela nossa licença: apenas os dados tem que permanecer sob uma licença livre. Isto faz com que seja possível para empresas e instituições utilizar nossos dados, inclusive com fins comerciais.

Harvard announced that “The Library Innovation Lab at the Harvard Law School Library has completed its Caselaw Access Project, an endeavour to digitize every reported state and federal US legal case from the 1600s to last summer.” The announcement entitled “Harvard just put more than 6 million court cases online to give legal AI a boost” included these details “Between 2013 and 2018, the Library digitized over 40 million pages of U.S. court decisions” to help AI, and explained the following: Why is this needed? One of the biggest hurdles to developing artificial intelligence for legal applications is the lack of access to data. To train their software, legal AI companies have often had to build their own databases by scraping whatever websites have made information public and making deals with companies for access to their private legal files.
