Peter Ibbetson
South London producer unveils his dazzling EP...

South London producer Peter Ibbetson is an exacting talent, someone who wants to make sure each detail is in its right place.

Matching an awareness of club tropes to a willingness to step outside the boundaries, his sound fractures expectations to unveil something new.

Incoming EP 'Rivals' is his broadest statement yet, worth comparing to Jon Hopkins or James Holden in its stark ability within sound engineering.

Ahead of the EP's release we're able to share the Makeness remix of Peter Ibbetson's 'Rivals', an undulating piece of digital abstraction, forever in evolution but remarkably succinct.

          Premiere: Shoji - 'Bliss'      Cache   Translate Page      
Shoji
Indie songwriting shot through with electronic flourishes...

Rising duo Shoji use music to express something inexpressible.

Josh Oliver and Alex Arcoleo met at school, gradually getting to know one another before entering the studio in the summer of 2017.

Indie songwriting shot through with electronic flourishes, the pair remove the divide between themselves and their art, resulting in some highly personal moments.

Lyrically revealing yet sonically opaque, new cut 'Bliss' is about the idea of addiction, and the manner in which music can move you into a different, healthier space.

Beautifully balanced, Shoji's production and songwriting intertwine perfectly. The duo explain:

"The lyric 'Devil's Acre...' is a metaphor for being stuck in a claustrophobic headspace. The line came from a poetry book that Josh read and it immediately struck a chord. The contrast of the last line 'I know I'll stay as long as I feel Bliss' plays with the idea of addiction and using vices to self remedy. The track title ‘Bliss’ we wanted to use as a contrast for the meaning of the lyrics to symbolise being in a dream state."

Foxton Kings - Burn.

Following on from their single Money Money, Perth's Foxton Kings have added yet another smouldering rock song to their arsenal with the fittingly-titled Burn. Full of rhythmic swagger, Burn oozes confidence and charm as it delivers a banquet of meaty riffs and catchy melodies. 


Honing the turbulent, all-consuming emotion of falling in love with a complete stranger, Burn sounds as enchantingly lustful as it should.

Produced by Andy Lawson, Burn is taken from Foxton Kings' 2019 EP offering With Love. Full of yearning and desire, Burn pays homage to the age-old ache of unrequited romance... a song written for lonely lovers everywhere.

The combination of Joel Stevens, Cliff Johnson, Dane Koek and Alex Barker brings out the best in all of them. The band's chemistry, both in writing and performance, is their biggest asset, and reveals itself in everything they do. Bringing pop sensibilities to stirring rock songs without diluting them, Foxton Kings will be showcasing their new material this November with a series of single launches across Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. FACEBOOK.


'Burn' is a feisty, high energy piece with plenty of rock and roll attitude coursing through it's veins. A sub three minute blast, this is a mighty tease for their E.P.

BlackieBlueBird - Flying Too Close To The Ground.
   
BlackieBlueBird are the vocalist Heidi Lindahl and the composer Nils Lassen; together they create delicate torch songs of reverb and echo that captivate the listener with resonating guitars, lap steels, mandolins and a choir of mermaids that sporadically embraces Heidi’s golden voice. The echoes of love and longing, hellos and deceiving goodbyes live within her unique and clear vibrato.

Ghost River symbolizes a subterranean river of memories that flows beneath our cities while on the surface we live our lives behind walls, among buildings and clamorous streets, ever pursuing our hopes and dreams. Unaware that deep within we are influenced by the Ghost River, we fulfill what lies in our destinies as tiny twigs floating along the flow of a gentle water stream.

Resembling a dream, Ghost River is an album that dwells in a drumless, cinematic atmosphere filled with romantic soundscapes of yearning desire and melodic choruses that caress the ear in a liberating and cathartic way.

All songs are written and produced by Nils Lassen. The album is a cooperation between T&E Records, Poisonic, and afmusic. Ghost River will be released on Vinyl, CD and as a download on 23rd of November. BANDCAMP.

The third of twelve tracks on the forthcoming 'Ghost River' album is the delectable song 'Flying Too Close To The Ground' a piece that well demonstrates the sheer creative quality that is present in every song.

This is a fabulously refined collection of music, with some beautifully crafted material that might be termed dream pop, although the depth and sophistication of the album doesn't feel conveyed enough through just that one label. If the featured track appeals to you, then make sure you you check out the album, it really is that good!

GRDNS - Hydraulic Lover.

Bradford’s resident desert rockers GRDNS showcase Hydraulic Lover, a masterful slice of psych-pop taken from their debut EP, released via UK label Dance To The Radio later this month.

Marking their boldest exploration into psychedelia to date, the band’s newest effort builds on widespread plaudits throughout the blogosphere (DIY, Clash, Dork), debut festival appearances at Live At Leeds/Gold Sounds and numerous support slots alongside fellow rising acts including Gengahr, Husky Loops and whenyoung.

Discussing their upcoming release, frontman Jacob Lyons stated: “Hydraulic Lover is about accepting all the bad attitudes, stupid shit and low vibe activities you get up to when you’re young. It’s the idea that song people treat each other like sexbots and the action of love is more hydraulic than passionate”.

Produced by James Kenosha (Pulled Apart By Horses, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Rhodes) GRDNS’ Hydraulic Lover is out 15th November via Dance To The Radio and will be available on all digital platforms. GRDNS is Jacob Lyons (vocals/guitar), Sam Gledhill (guitar), Cameron Harrison (bass) and John Fitzpatrick (drums)

Live Date: 15 Nov – Salt Beer Factory, Shipley (supporting PINS) TWITTER.


GRDNS are clearly doing something right especially if you measure that, by the number of appearances they have made on Beehive Candy this year, with the latest track 'Hydraulic Lover' notching them up to four features since February. Opening with some fuzzy guitar riffs, the band are soon into their vibrant and catchy alt rock style with those gorgeous psychedelic overtones adding some real edge.

Amazônia está próxima de atingir percentual irreversível de desmatamento

Relatório mostra que 20% da floresta foi destruída desde 1970. Índice deve se agravar no governo Bolsonaro (PSL)

Brasil de Fato | São Paulo (SP)
,
Ouça a matéria:
Imagem aérea do desmatamento na Floresta Amazônica, em 22 de setembro de 2017 / CARL DE SOUZA / AFP
O último relatório "Planeta Vivo", do Fundo Mundial para a Natureza (WWF, em inglês), divulgado na semana passada, mostrou que a área da Floresta Amazônica foi reduzida em 20% nos últimos 50 anos devido ao desmatamento. Segundo o Instituto Nacional de Ciência e Tecnologia para Mudanças Climáticas, a porcentagem de desmatamento entre 20% e 25% do bioma representa um ponto de inflexão. Ou seja, a partir deste ponto, o dano à floresta se torna irreversível.
O cálculo, publicado em fevereiro deste ano em um editorial na revista estadunidense Science Advances, foi feito com base em um estudo brasileiro divulgado em 2016, com auxílio da Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (Fapesp). Os primeiros modelos elaborados para responder qual o limite irreparável do desmatamento amazônico apontavam para cerca de 40%. Com a introdução de novas fatores, como mudanças climáticas e incêndios, além do impacto do desmatamento sobre o ciclo hidrológico amazônico nas últimas décadas, o novo ponto foi estabelecido.
De acordo com Carlos Nobre, coordenador do Instituto e autor do editorial, o número de 20% corresponde ao desmatamento na porção brasileira da Amazônia. O total do desmatamento da floresta, que faz parte de outros territórios da América do Sul, atinge entre 16% e 17%.
Nobre explica que a seca no sul e sudeste amazônicos são consequências da proximidade do ponto de inflexão. Se o desmatamento ultrapassar o valor crítico, há riscos de um processo de "savanização" do bioma, com perda de biodiversidade e emissão intensa de gás carbônico para a atmosfera. 
"Para ficarmos no lado seguro, políticas de desenvolvimento para a Amazônia deveriam rapidamente nos levar a taxas zero de desmatamento líquido. Na verdade, há inúmeras áreas degradadas que podem ser utilizadas para restauração florestal. O Brasil, nos seus compromissos com o Acordo de Paris das mudanças climáticas, se comprometeu a restaurar 12 milhões de hectares de florestas e outros ecossistemas naturais até 2030. A Amazônia é candidata a ter uma grande área de floresta restaurada, digamos de 5 a 6 mil km², o que já seria uma excelente sinalização na direção de redução do risco de um ponto de inflexão ser atingido nas próximas décadas", afirma o pesquisador. 
No entanto, o índice de desmatamento pode aumentar nos próximos anos, devido às políticas já anunciadas pelo presidente eleito Jair Bolsonaro (PSL). Medidas como a possível união dos Ministérios da Agricultura e do Meio Ambiente, o fim da demarcação de terras indígenas e quilombolas, e afirmações de que o país seria retirado do Acordo de Paris ameaçam os biomas brasileiros. É o que prevê Fábio Pacheco, coordenador da Articulação Nacional de Agroecologia na Amazônia.
"Vai ser um grande desastre. Esse governo não tem nenhum compromisso com o desenvolvimento, de fato. Essa coisa de ter voltado atrás na unificação dos ministérios não vai acontecer na prática, porque ele vai colocar alguém no Ministério do Meio Ambiente, que será biônico ao Ministério da Agricultura. Isso não tem volta. É o pensamento que conquistou todo o agronegócio que investiu grana nele [Bolsonaro]. Então, vamos ver um Ministério do Meio Ambiente subordinado ao agronegócio", afirma.
Pacheco participa, durante esta semana, do encontro Territórios Livres e Soberania Popular na Amazônia. O evento pretende organizar movimentos populares e organizações da Amazônia para articular formas de enfrentar retiradas de direitos e o avanço do agronegócio nos territórios preservados.
"As populações tradicionais, quem verdadeiramente preserva a Amazônia, movimentos sociais indígenas, quilombolas, já foram declarados alvo de criminalização pelo Presidente. Isso vai desestabilizar toda a organização que existe para eles acessarem essas terras, mais preservadas da Amazônia, sob domínio desses povos", completa.  
Um dos integrantes da equipe de Bolsonaro para a Agricultura e ministro cotado para a pasta, Luiz Antônio Nabhan Garcia, que também é presidente da União Democrática Ruralista (UDR), chegou a defender que ainda há espaço para desmatamento legal na Amazônia. Nabhan afirma também que os proprietários rurais são os principais responsáveis pela preservação do meio ambiente. No entanto, para Pacheco, a intervenção "altamente capitalista" do agronegócio no Brasil, bem como da mineração, está por trás da destruição da Floresta Amazônica: quase um terço dos solos utilizados pelo agronegócio no país já foram desertificados.
"O agronegócio deveria estar muito mais preocupado com a preservação da floresta do que nós, porque o próprio clima é regulado por essa frágil relação entre vegetação e manutenção do clima. Se passamos do patamar de 20%, teremos toda uma reversão climática de alteração de regime de chuvas, aumento de temperatura, e vai ser terrível até para o negócio deles", denuncia.
A diminuição da oferta de água doce, que explica as recorrentes crises hídricas na região Sudeste e a extinção de animais, são alguns dos impactos do desmatamento observados pela WWF. Foram 50 mil km² desmatados no bioma amazônico nos últimos sete anos. Já o Cerrado teve 60% a mais de perda do que a Amazônia, com 80 mil km² de terras devastadas.

          Music Review // Crooked Flower "Into The Light"      Cache   Translate Page      

https://soundcloud.com/crookedflower/sets/into-the-light //

Right away, the sound of Crooked Flower makes me think of Letters to Cleo.   Though, the more I listen to it, the less I hear of them and the more I hear of some combination of something else.   This has this psychedelic feel to it throughout which makes me think it could've been from that Woodstock they did in the 1990's with Nine Inch Nails, Green Day and all them.    There is some element of No Doubt in here as well and I want to say this certain groove reminds me of Poe.

Along with a little bit of Dead Sara, on "Around and Around" I can hear elements of Save Ferris.   "10 Million Seeds" has a strong ska/reggae vibe as it has me thinking of RxBandits and then somehow "Falling" becomes a much catchier song.   "Own World" has an overall Tom Petty theme to it though at first it can sound like Tori Amos and/or Jewel.    Though there are some modern influences here I feel they are minimal and this goes back to a time before even the year 2000 for its roots.

Lyrically, I enjoy a song such as "Freedom" which says "Thank God for the government / taking care of me", something everyone needs to keep a close eye on at all times (And also fits in with my whole Woodstock theme of this album)  And then I hear a line which gets quiet and grows louder like: "That job of yours isn't going to make you rich / you suck and you're a bitch" and I fall in love with this album all over again because these words, which should ring true with you, hit in such a melodic way that you cannot help but embrace them.

"Into The Light" is some combination of a band from the 1990's (or before that) which could've been on a soundtrack like "10 Things I Hate About You" or even "Empire Records".   It has that feeling where you want to put it with other bands with women but at the same time it could just as easily be that one band with women playing with all the men.   Back in some odd year I saw Poe open for the band Seven Mary Three at Toad's Place in New Haven.  I feel like Crooked Flower could have that same kind of connection except instead of being a memory they are aimed more towards the future.


          Movie Review // Here to Be Heard: The Story of the Slits      Cache   Translate Page      

https://mvdshop.com/products/slits-here-to-be-heard-the-story-of-the-slits-dvd //

If I've never said this before I will say it now but I am someone who watches documentaries because I enjoy learning new things, but I also will watch just about any documentary you want me to that is about music.    That being said, I also firmly believe that not every artist has a documentary made about them and that is for a rather specific reason.   I feel as if it is only those special artists who stand out from the rest who get to have the documentaries tell their story further, beyond the music.

How do you describe The Slits to someone who has never heard of them before?  I told someone I was watching this documentary and my short paragraph of explaining it said that The Slits were an all girl punk group in the 1970's but eventually became reggae/experimental later on, constantly redefining the way things were not just for women but music on the whole.   Isn't it funny how you look at The Slits now in 2018 and they just seem so... I don't want to say common because Ari Up would still stand out in a crowd today if she was alive, but they were doing things back then no one else was doing which feel more commonplace now.

Aside from the style, aside from breaking of fashion barriers, The Slits created incredible music.   One thing I feel I constantly struggle with is comparison points for musicians who are female.   There are only so many you go back to-- and it's not that bands went unnoticed it's just that for such a long time, as this documentary points out, music (and punk) was dominated by men.   Watch as The Slits discuss bands like Sex Pistols and The Clash.   They went on tour with Buzzcocks, for example, but you won't really see as many other women in the scene, it wasn't like "Well, of all the other bands of women out there we chose the best to go on tour with us".  No.  They were really the only ones.

Ok, I'm willing to admit that if you know your punk history they weren't the *only* ones so much as that they were the definitive ones.   People came out to see them based on word of mouth.   This is something where it's before the Internet, before Bandcamp and SoundCloud, so people weren't saying "Oh yeah, I streamed some of their songs and they sounded cool"   They didn't even have a record out and people were showing up to see them and really digging what they were doing!    The very concept of that in 2018 would result in an artist having next to no one come out for their show.

Many times, I wish music went back to what it was like before The Beatles, before there were records.   If you wanted to hear an artist, you had to go see them perform live because there was no recorded music of them.   But even just to go back before the Internet... It's crazy to me, because even in the late 1990's when I began going to see live music all the time I had people give me sampler CDs so I'd go see a band based upon knowing one of their songs.   And then there was Napster.   But it's difficult for me to think about seeing a band based upon word of mouth and I wish we could somehow get back to that.

The Slits were a special band.   They still are.  Everything that everyone attributes to Sex Pistols and punk rock should be attributed to The Slits ten times over because they just weren't opening doors for women, they were opening doors for music.   I actually prefer the later sound of The Slits to their earlier music but it's all just so wild and crazy you have to really take it all in, song by song.   Even in 2018, these songs still hold up-- they're still somehow top of the class if they were released today.

At the end of this film is a quote by someone saying that you should do whatever makes you happy.   You should find your passion and embrace it, and other people might not like it but it will be rewarding for you.    That really kind of hit me hard.   I know I messed up the paraphrasing on it and I don't even remember who said it, but it still had this profound impact on me because it's what I'm doing with my life.   I'm not the most popular writer by far, but I'm fine with that.   I think we all need to kind of dissolve the myth of popularity and do what makes us happy.    That and hear The Slits in every band we listen to from now on.

          Seattle Opera Celebrates Grand Opening of New Civic Home      Cache   Translate Page      

Come celebrate the Grand Opening of Seattle Opera's new civic home! This state-of-the-art building will allow the company to expand its work with communities across Washington State, and, from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday, December 15, members of the public are invited to a free open house.

"When our new civic home opens this winter, Seattle Opera will continue to break down barriers that have previously kept people from being able to participate in opera," said General Director Aidan Lang. "In addition to creating an environment for world-class artistry, we are establishing a welcoming and accessible community resource on the Seattle Center campus, inviting visitors to explore our city's arts and cultural home."

Attendees of the Grand Opening will be able to experience musical performances by Seattle Opera's Chorus and Teen Vocal Studio as well as members of the Seattle Symphony Orchestra (RSVP for performances at 2 p.m. 3 p.m., and 4 p.m.), observe a rehearsal of Il trovatore, learn more about the history of Seattle Opera, as well as Opera Production 101 in a fun, informative talk from Dramaturg Jonathan Dean. Participate in a Seattle Opera Sing-Along with some of Verdi's most popular choruses, and enjoy a Costume Presentation with Costume Director Susan Davis. Additionally, people can check out the space via self-guided tour.

Seattle Opera's new, state-of-the-art facility includes:

- A total of 105,000 square feet (with 20,000 square feet dedicated to community programming and education).

- A viewing garden where the public can look into Seattle Opera's celebrated costume shop.

- Space for storing and prepping 50,000 props.

- Dedicated space for wig preparation and creation-a first in the company's history.

- Tagney Jones Hall, a glass box performance space for educational and community events that seats 200.

- A street-level, ADA-accessible box office

- Three multi-purpose studios, the largest of which is the same size as McCaw Hall's stage and enables casts to rehearse on the scenery which will appear onstage. The other two studios can be used for rehearsals, community programs, youth operas, events, and more.

- Reclaimed wood from the Mercer Arena roof (repurposed in Tagney Jones Hall).

- Original trees on the east side of the building that were planted for the Worlds' Fair, then retained and nurtured throughout construction.

- A rain garden which uses storm water runoff in an Earth-friendly way.

Seattle Opera's new civic home is being completed by Lease Crutcher Lewis, contractor, and NBBJ, architect.

Song: Moving Panoramas - Baby Blues

What's so good?

When I was a kid I used to be obsessed with beluga whales. There's something so lovable about their lumpy heads. Killer whales are my all time favorite. When I was a kid there was this song called "Baby Beluga." It made them seem so harmless and adorable. Don't get it twisted. Beluga whales will fuck you up. Look at these teeth. Moving Panoramas song "Baby Blues" has nothing to do with whales but it fucked me up and had me thinking about beluga whales. Their lumpy heads are just downright adorable.

És továbbra is nagyon nagy köszönet mindenkinek, aki támogatta Patreon-kampányunkat! (Támogatóink listáját lásd a poszt végén.)

Fennállásunk leghosszabb Checkpoint Minije következik - oké, hogy toplistás, de az ahhoz apropót adó játékról is elég sokat beszéltünk, így túlmentünk az egy órán. Mentségünkre csak annyit mondok, hogy Daikatana - a játék, aminek mindenki nagyon drukkolt, és ami nagyon pofára esett, és bebizonyította, hogy John Romero nem való cégvezetőnek. Kipróbáltuk 2018-ban, és hát nem kellett volna. Okoskodásunkhoz hozzácsaptunk egy toplistát is, talán az eddigi legszubjektívebbet.

           War and peaceful gardens: in the land of Tolstoy. BBC:Pernicious Ambition and Tolstoy’s “War and Peace”       Cache   Translate Page      


"The cudgel of the people's war was lifted with all its menacing and majestic might, and caring nothing for good taste and procedure, with dull-witted simplicity but sound judgement it rose and fell, making no distinctions." - Leo Tolstoy
Have you ever wanted to read 'War and Peace' but find this magnificent novel somewhat daunting? Our audio guide presented by Amy Mandelker suggests ways of approaching this masterpiece for first-time readers. Amy is Associate Professor of Comparative Literature at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.



"Perhaps having intuited Tolstoy’s disdain for ambition, the creators of the BBC series focused most of their attention on the realm of home. The disease of Napoleonism is largely absent from the Davies adaptation, where Napoleon emerges as a pedestrian villain. In minimizing Napoleon and the Napoleonic quest, the series’s directors domesticate male characters, robbing them of the outward ambition so apparent in Tolstoy’s novel: Andrei (James Norton) seems bored and restless, while Pierre’s (Paul Dano) primary motivation appears to be a very contemporary kind of anxiety."

War and peaceful gardens: in the land of Tolstoy

A visit to Tolstoy’s country estate gives writer and gardener Charlotte Mendelson an insight into the relationship between nature and creativity

Country life … Tolstoy in the grounds of his estate, Yasnaya Polyana. Photograph: George Rinhart/Corbis/Getty

Charlotte Mendelson
Saturday 15 October 2016 11.00 BST

Springtime can kill you, but autumn is worse. If one’s soul responds to nature – and, as Louis Armstrong said of jazz, if you have to ask what that means, you’ll never know – then its beauty is painful. Whatever TS Eliot thought (the poor man was wrong about so much), autumn is the most painful time of all. Walking in the grounds of Tolstoy’s country estate at Yasnaya Polyana, yellow birch leaves turning gently as they fall, is almost too much, particularly for an oversensitive novelist. Five of us are here, imported by the British Council to broaden Russian conceptions of British literature. We have worked – by God we have worked – but, this morning, among the wooded paths and ripe, rich leaf mould, nothing else seems to matter, not even fiction.

For cramped city-dwellers, the incomprehensible excess of space is dazzling: the “cascade of three ponds”, each more invitingly cool and swimmable than the last; the fir woods thick with fungal life; the juicy grass. Even the ponies have had a surfeit. There is so much silken birch bark, pinkly tender beneath its epidermis; so many fallen, unregarded apples and ancient, lichen-spattered branches: mustard, pigeon, rose. One wants to sniff and wallow; at least, I do. Surely this is normal? A reasonable response to being knee-deep in the dew and bracken: surrendering to the space, the wildness?

Of course not. My fellow writers return home with translators’ business cards and ecclesiastical souvenirs. My case is full of Japanese quinces, oak leaves, almond shells, calendula seeds and, most worrying of all, a knobbly fir branch, as long as my arm, stolen from the forest floor and slipped past the cold-eyed, epauletted customs boys at Domodedovo airport. Did the other novelists find themselves embarrassingly weeping at the perfect transparency of a plantation of firs, bare-trunked and widely spaced to allow, as Sofia and Leo Tolstoy had intended, the pale September sunlight to pour in? They did not.
***


Like his grandfather, Prince Volkonsky, who first developed the estate in Tula region, 120 miles south of Moscow, Leo Tolstoy was an enthusiast. His wife, Sofia, may also have been, in her spare moments between bearing his 13 children, copying and editing War and Peace seven times and documenting every minute of their lives in diaries and photographs. Sofia’s husband had no time for such fripperies. He was busy, trying to create a new breed of horse by crossing English thoroughbred stallions with their Kirgizian cousins; following developments in fruit-tree breeding; buying Japanese pigs (“I feel I cannot be happy in life until I get some of my own”); downing healthy bowlfuls of fermented mare’s milk; maddening Sofia with his “purely verbal” renunciation of worldly goods; spending too many roubles on attempting to grow watermelons, coffee and pineapples in his hothouse. Anything, one suspects, could have captured his attention: dog-racing, topiary, needlepoint.

Tolstoy derided his early works as an awkward mixture of fact and fiction, yet they offer an insight into what made him

But, although it’s easy to dismiss him as a Professor Branestawm crank, to laugh at the old man who lifted weights in his study and hung, red-faced, from a bar while instructing his staff, Tolstoy’s passionate engagement with the land around him was his life’s joy. Like all but the unluckiest children, even today, he knew the tannic bite of currant leaves, the rumpled gloss of worm casts, the hayish sweetness of a grass stem. Childhood, boyhood, youth is thick with the sensual thrills of the outdoors: the damply shaded raspberry thicket, alive with sparrows, and the taste of accidentally ingested wood beetles, the cobwebs, the dense, dank soil. And, even though he famously derided his early works as “an awkward mixture of fact and fiction”, they offer a moving insight into what made him.


Monet wrote: “Je dois peut-être aux fleurs d’avoir été peintre” – I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers. Writers are often asked what made them write; I can’t answer that for myself, let alone for Monet, but, surely, the intense feelings evoked by colour and form made him need to express himself, in paint. He also became a wonderful gardener. Edith Wharton’s first published short story, Mrs Manstey’s View, describes how a glimpse of shabby town garden is all that keeps old Mrs Mantsey alive. Later, of the grand Italianate gardens, all rustic rock fountains and pleaching, which she designed for The Mount, her home in Massachusetts, she wrote: “I’m a better landscape gardener than novelist, and this place, every line of which is my own work, far surpasses The House of Mirth.”


Wharton was wrong about the novels, and The Mount is too neat for me: where is the sledge requisitioned as a plant crutch? However, we would agree, I think, about the soothing power of gardens: loneliness and sadness are horrible, but they feed us, teach us to comfort ourselves with alertness, and to look – what the poet Mary Oliver calls paying attention. When at school I encountered Gerard Manley Hopkins’s “worlds of wanwood leafmeal” in “Spring and Fall: To a Young Child”, or Laurie Lee’s morning in “April Rise” – “lemon-green the vaporous morning drips / wet sunlight on the powder of my eye” – I recognised that precision, the thrilling focus on nature, close up. Don’t other children, on the rare occasions when they’re not reading, fall in love with the blistered, sun-warmed paint on a door, the beauty of old, lichened bricks, or susurrating grasses? We didn’t have grateful serfs or 100 acres of orchards, but there were new worlds among the wild strawberries and, possibly, ichthyosaur bones in the sandpit.


I had no interest in gardens until my mid-30s but, I now realise, I had fallen in love with leaves, twigs and decay long ago, and it made me need to write. Tolstoy may have found apiaries so absorbing, he claimed he could barely remember the author of The Cossacks but, as he told an old friend: “Whatever I do, somewhere between the dung and the dirt I keep starting to weave words.”


***Count Tolstoy would probably not have recognised my tiny outdoor space as a garden. Largely paved, entirely overlooked, without bluebells or coppicing or even a simple wildflower meadow, my six square metres of polluted soil he would consider to be unworthy of the most pitiful peasant schoolteacher: where is the pig? The walnut tree? Oh Leo, I know; I’m disappointed too.


This may be why, for me, garden writing is a sensitive subject. As a writer and a gardener, albeit of an experimental jungle allotment, the classics of domestic horticulture leave me embarrassingly cold. Gertrude Jekyll, Elizabeth von Arnim, Margery Fish, Mirabel Osler, even Christopher Lloyd, the Mae West of garden writers, all had acres, staff, greenhice. Their vision was inspiring, their metaphors exciting (I particularly love Lloyd’s division of smells into “moral and immoral”), but their rambling rhododendron groves and stone walkways were alienating to a novice. Reading about their tree‑surgery crises was like owning a carnivorous Shetland pony while reading about Olympic dressage: all very lovely but not for the likes of me. Besides, my ever more rampaging obsession was for growing fruit and vegetables, now well over 100 different kinds and the more unusual the better, yet most garden writing focused either on shrubbery and flowers, or on an alien world of double digging potato trenches, superphosphate and basic pruning, apparently a simple twice-yearly process of shortening main central leaders, side-branch leaders to the third tier and laterals, then spurring back and tying in, which, to a person unable to tell their left from their right, was of limited value.


At the other end of the gamut of garden writing lies seed catalogues: during times of stress or in deepest midwinter, they are perfect for reading in the bath. At least, they should be. But, for the novelist-gardener, trauma lies ahead. I hope I am not alone in finding certain words and phrases unbearable: “veggies”, “a bake”, “eat happy”, “hue”. Unfortunately, seed catalogues are worse, full of showy choice fluoroselect picotee bicoloured collarette pastel novelties. Perfectly ordinary varieties of flowers, fruit and vegetables bear names for which there is no excuse: Naughty Marietta, Slap ’n’ Tickle, Tendersnax, Bright Bikini, Nonstop® Rose Petticoat. They make me want to die.

Noël Coward described Vita Sackville-West as 'Lady Chatterley above the waist and the gamekeeper below'
And so, needing both comradeship and advice, I have found my gardening friends in unlikely places: horticulturally minded food writers; Joy Larkcom’s and her masterpiece, Oriental Vegetables; poor murdered Karel Čapek, author of my beloved The Gardener’s Year; and Ursula Buchan’s Garden People, for sartorial guidance. Who needs advice about vine weevils when one can gaze at photographs of interior designer and gardener Nancy Lancaster’s sexy yellow scarf, or the rakish gaucho hat of Rhoda, Lady Birley, as she firmly grips those scarlet parrot-bill loppers? Noël Coward described Vita Sackville-West as “Lady Chatterley above the waist and the gamekeeper below”, which is good enough for me.


And now, after a decade of increasingly demented growing, I have at last found my gardening sibling: Leo Tolstoy. At Yasnaya Polyana, inspecting the fat yellow squashes growing on the compost heap, sensing the curvature of the earth as we reached the bare brim of a wooded hill, I suddenly understood that in one respect, if, irritatingly, none other, I and the great beardy genius are alike. We are enthusiasts. Fine, so my garden isn’t an arrangement of colours and textures to please an artist’s, or even a normal gardener’s, eye. Who cares if it’s not reflected in any book I’ve read, or if few others garden purely for taste, smell, sensual pleasure: the warm pepper of tomato leaves, curling courgette tendrils, the corduroy ridges on a coriander seed. My tiny green and fragrant world would definitely not have been admired by Tolstoy’s guests from the drawing-room windows, but I think the man himself would have understood the passion behind it. Please ignore the broom handles and recycled windows; I’m sorry that there is nowhere to sit. But just taste this Crimean tomato, this purple bean, this golden raspberry. Look into the translucent depths of this whitecurrant. Pay attention. It brings such peace.

          Citizenship Question on Census Goes to Trial      Cache   Translate Page      
A federal judge in Manhattan is hearing testimony in a lawsuit over whether the census should include a question about citizenship. Opponents of the citizenship question say it is intended to “weaponize” the census in order to under-count and under-fund services for immigrants, communities of color, and the poor.
Christopher Martinez reports.

          MARK TREMONTI: 'If You Wanna Have Tens Of Millions Of Fans, You're Gonna Have A Million Haters As Well'      Cache   Translate Page      
Mark Tremonti says that it's "wrong" of people to use social media to criticize artists and musicians that they don't like. Social media has allowed bands to connect directly with their fans. Unfortunately, it has also given those with a negative opinion a place where they know their complaints and criticisms will be seen and heard. While hiding behind a Facebook page, Twitter handle, or YouTube account, these self-styled music critics feel confident in tearing musicians a new one. During an appearance on "Jon's Untitled Podcast", Tremonti said that he sympathizes with artists who are regularly subjected to online hate. "I went through it, and when I was in it, it really pissed me off to see anything negative about [my] band," the ALTER BRIDGE and CREED guitarist said. "But even the biggest stars in the world — you take a Michael Jackson: if you wanna have tens of millions of fans, you're gonna have a million haters out there as well, no matter who you are. So the bigger you are, the bigger target you have on your back. Especially when you have a ton of success. People love the underdog, people hate the guy on top, or the girl on top. And it's tough to stay on top." He continued: "Just yesterday, a song came on the radio. My kids flipped through the stations and a Taylor Swift song came on. [They said] 'Oh, this song sucks.' Or, 'Taylor Swift's no good.' [And I'm, like] 'What are you talking about? Do you know what talent it takes to fill stadiums around the world and keep on writing these songs and perform to the level she does? And have Mick Jagger come on the stage with you, and this star come on the stage with you and you hold your own against all these people? It takes a lot. So for people just to slag on the top people, I think, is wrong. Try to take the bitter metal guy that plays in his bedroom, you get up and play in a stadium in front of that many people and see how difficult it is. 'Cause it's not just sitting in a chair in your room in a perfect little environment. There's a lot of other factors." Tremonti's solo band has been on the road recently behind its latest album, "A Dying Machine", while ALTER BRIDGE is scheduled to return to the studio next spring.

          [큐오넷 리뷰] sE Electronics Dynamite DM1 리뷰      Cache   Translate Page      

※ 본 리뷰는 해당 디스트리뷰터의 증정 및 지원용 리뷰가 아닌, 순수 호기심으로 데모 요청하여 기술하는 리뷰입니다.

 

 

 

안녕하세요! Arbiiter 입니다.

 

오늘은 다이나믹/리본 마이크의 부족한 게인을 채워주기 위한 '증폭기'인 Preamplifier.

sE Electronics 사의 'DM1' Dynamite 에 대해서 리뷰해볼까합니다.

 

일단 sE 측에서 홍보를 하는 것들에 대해서 찾아보셔도 충분히 알 수 있겠지만, 이 리뷰를 통해서 처음 보시는 분들을 위해 간단하게 설명하고,

제일 중요한 데이터를 들으면서 어느정도 증폭이 되는 것인지를 알아보겠습니다.

 

그렇다면 리뷰 들어가보겠습니다! 

 

 

 

 

 

1. 증폭기

 

네. 이러한 컨셉의 제품들은 다양~한 명칭이 존재합니다만, 우리의 고유 언어인 한글말로는 '증폭기'라고 보시는 것이 맞으실 듯합니다.

 

이러한 다이나믹마이크를 증폭해주는 포터블 기기의 명칭은 Mic Activator (팬텀파워를 이용해 패시브를 액티브로 바꿔주는), Pre Amp (단순하게 프리앰프라고 보셔도 되고), Lever Amplfier (게인을 확보하기위해 레벨에 앰핑을 시켜주는) 다양한 명칭으로 분류됩니다.

 

그리하여

 

1) 홈레코딩에서 콘덴서마이크를 쓰기에는 높은 감도와 넓게 잡히는 노이즈 및 생활 잡이 부담스러워서 다이나믹 마이크를 여유로운 레벨로 쓰고싶은 유저

 

2) 프리앰프로 다이나믹 마이크의 레벨을 올리고 싶은데 특유의 프리앰프의 전기를 타는 셀프노이즈까지 같이 올라가서 부담스러운 유저

 

3) SM7B! SM7B! 를 잘 쓰고 싶은 (ㅋㅋ) 유저

 

 

 

들에게 단비같은 역할을 하게 됩니다.

 

원래 시장에서 이러한 다이나믹/리본 마이크의 증폭기로는 'Cloud Microphons' 사의 'Cloudlifter' 가 독보적인 존재로 알려져있었고, 그 뒤를 따라서 Radial 사의 McBoost 라는 제품이 아주 약간의 인지도 (하지만 클라우드리프터가 독보적) 가 있는 채로 판매되고 있었습니다.

 

cloudlifter cl-1ì ëí ì´ë¯¸ì§ ê²ìê²°ê³¼ 

(Cloud Microphones 사의 CL-1. 149$)

 

radial mcboostì ëí ì´ë¯¸ì§ ê²ìê²°ê³¼ 

(게인 조절 및 여러 설정이 가능한 Radial 사의 McBoost. 199$)

 

그리고 그 뒤를 따라서 현재 리뷰할 sE Electronics 사의 DM1 이 발표되게 됩니다.

 

se dm1ì ëí ì´ë¯¸ì§ ê²ìê²°ê³¼ 

(다이너마이트...99$ 로 발표되었습니다.)

 

 

 

 

 

2. sE Electronics 사의 DM1 만의 장점은?

 

이렇게 시장이 자리 잡히기 전에 2번째, 또는 3번째로 나오는 제품들은 현재 독주중인 특정 제품의 단점을 보완해서 발표되게 됩니다. 이 것을 sE Electronics 는 굉장히 잘 캐치해서 이러한 증폭기를 발표하게 되었습니다.

 

어떠한 차이점이 있는지 살펴보았는데, 이러한 차이점을 보입니다.

 

 

 

(1) 이러한 기존의 증폭기는 XLR 케이블이 2개가 필요하다.

 

cloudlifter cl-1ì ëí ì´ë¯¸ì§ ê²ìê²°ê³¼ 

 

우리가 자체 전원을 먹여서 쓰는 프리앰프들도 당연히 케이블을 2줄을 쓰기에, 당연하게 받아들여졌던 부분입니다만,

 

sE 에서는 이렇게 쓸 경우 증폭을 하는 성능이 100% 발휘될 수 없다고 발표하였습니다. 그래서 sE 의 DM1 은 XLR케이블 정도의 두께로 아주 얇고 가볍게 제작되어서 마이크 혹은 오디오인터페이스 및 믹서에 바로 꽂아서 쓸 수 있어서 케이블은 평소 쓰듯이 1ea 만 쓰면 되고, 성능은 100% 끌어낼 수 있다라고 설명한 바 있습니다.

 

se dm1ì ëí ì´ë¯¸ì§ ê²ìê²°ê³¼ 

  물론 저 정말 시뻘건 다이너마이트(?)처럼 생긴 애가 마이크나 오디오인터페이스에 붙어있는게 미관상(?) 조금 그런 유저라면, 이렇게 쓰셔도 무방한데, 테스트했을 때도 성능이 직결하였을 때보다는 떨어지는 느낌을 받긴 했습니다. 감성적인 측면으로는 컴프에 메이크업게인이 덜 걸린(?) 느낌 같았습니다. 

 

 

 

(2) 타사 증폭기에 비해 노이즈가 현저히 낮다.

 

실제로 뒤에 데이터를 들어보시면 아시겠지만, 자체 전원으로 동작하는 우리가 통상적으로 생각하는 프리앰프도 게인을 올리면 셀프 노이즈가 있기 마련인데, 신기하게 노이즈가 꽤나 적습니다. 이 부분은 조금 신기하긴 하였습니다.

 

se dm1ì ëí ì´ë¯¸ì§ ê²ìê²°ê³¼

이 것은 아무래도 설계 시에 저항값을 최소로 제작하였기 때문에 가능했던 것이였던 것 같습니다. 최근에 sE 는 가격대비 좋은 성능으로 마이크 및 리플렉션 필터를 뽑아내는, 마케팅 예산까지도 설계 및 제작비에 몰빵한다는 영국/중국 회사 (의 비밀은 무시무시한 중국 자본)이기에 낮은 가격에서도 이러한 기술력을 실행시킨 것 같습니다. 소비자 입장에서는 꽤나 반가운 브랜드일 수 밖에 없죠. 브랜드 A 와 B 는 클라우드리프터와 Radial 같군요. 

  

se dm1ì ëí ì´ë¯¸ì§ ê²ìê²°ê³¼ 

 

이렇게 오인페 자체에서 올리나 저렇게 프리앰프에서 올리나 셀프노이즈가 많이 뜨면 SM7B 같은 때깔 및 소스 퀄리티가 100~200만원대 마이크 뺨도 후려쳐서 외국에서 앨범작업용으로도 엄청 쓰이는 최강 마이크에게조차 큰 효용이 없습니다. 노이즈게이트로 음질을 손상시켜야하기 때문이죠. 그러한 단점을 보완하여 노이즈를 최소화하여 설계한 것 같습니다. (역시 A와 B는 C와 R사인 듯 하네요)

 

솔직히 뻥카인 줄 알았는데, 테스트해보고는 (음,) 이라고 하게되었달까요. 그 것은 뒤의 데이터를 통해서 여러분들과 얘기해보고자 합니다.

 

 

 

(3) 최대 게인 값

 

  클라우드리프터와 래디얼 사의 증폭기는 25dB 까지 증폭이 된다고 설명하고 있지만, 특히 클라우드리프터 제품을 쓰는 유저들의 피드백 중 많이 찾아볼 수 있었던 것은 '오디오인터페이스 및 믹서를 가린다' 라는 피드백이였습니다. 아무래도 저항값이 맞지 않으면 컴프레서가 스레숄드로 꾹꾹 누르는 것 같은(?) 느낌을 받기 때문에 '아 내가 이걸 왜 샀지' 라는 생각이 들 수도 있겠죠.

 

그래서 sE에서는 저항값을 최대로 낮춰서 어떤 컨버터에서도 +28dB 를 증폭할 수 있도록 설계하였다라고 설명합니다. 저 역시 테스트했을 때에도 SM7B 가 시원시원하게 게인값이 나와줘서 '오 정말 그렇구나' 라고 생각했던 것 같습니다.

 

 

 

(4) 국내 수입처

 

  클라우드리프터는 현재 국내 수입처가 없습니다. (제가 알기로도?) 그래서 직구를 할 때 시간이 오래 걸리기도 하고, 외국에서 오다보니 원치않는 부가적인 금액들이 붙기 마련입니다. 고장 났을 때의 대처 역시도 그렇구요. 그러나 sE 는 국내 수입처가 있어서 (특히 그 국내수입처가 국내가를 굉장히 낮게 잡습니다.) 99$ 인 다이너마이트를 12만8천원이라는 좋은 가격으로 잡았기 때문에, 레코딩에서 다이나믹 마이크를 쓰다가 너무나도 답답한 유저들은 지금이라도 외출을 해서 용산 및 낙원에서 구입해올 수 있을 정도로 부담도 작고 가지고 오기도 가볍습니다.

 

 

 

 

 

2. 들어보자!

 

 

그렇다면 어느정도의 증폭이 되는건지 알아보겠습니다.

 

557913e179851b938901a7b402f292e2_1541578595_7592.jpg
557913e179851b938901a7b402f292e2_1541578597_7811.jpg
 

모두가 궁금해하실 SM7B 와 부록으로 SM57 ! 까지 테스트해보았습니다. 

 

 

 

ARTURIA AUDIOFUSE 1번채널 프리의 10시 방향에서 녹음하였을 때의 차이입니다.

 

 

어느 정도 증폭이 되시는지 감이 잡히시나요?

 

저는 개인적으로 SM7B 와의 궁합은 정말 좋은 것 같습니다. 뭔가 사운드를 한번 더 잡아주고, 원래 SM7B 가 가지고 있던 따뜻하면서 이쁜 중저역대를 좀 더 또렷하게 만들어주는 효과도 있는 것 같습니다. SM57 은 확실히 날카로워지는 느낌인데 이 것은 SM57 특유의 사운드가 부각되어서 그런 듯 하네요. 확실히 화이트노이즈 느낌이 들리지 않아서 노이즈도 적게 잡히는 듯 하구요. 참 신기하게 만들어진 증폭기임은 분명합니다. 

 

 

 

 

3. 마치며

 

홈레코딩 또는 스튜디오에서 SM7B 나 SM57 등의 마이크, 혹은 쓰고있는 다이나믹마이크가 어떠한 아웃보드가 붙어도 만족할만한 게인이 나오지않거나, 혹은 불어나는 노이즈(?) 가 고민이거나, 내가 쓰는 다이나믹 마이크를 홈레코딩에서 주변 생활 소음 걱정없이 말 그대로 게인만 확보하여 녹음하고 싶다면! sE 다이너마이트를 붙이시고 팬텀파워를 키시는 것을 추천해드리고 싶습니다. 클라우드리프터가 독주하고 있긴 하지만 이러한 부가적인 목적을 위해 굳이 해외직구까지 감행한다기보다는 가격면으로나 성능면으로나 다이너마이트가 더 나은 것 같습니다. 이상 Arbiiter 였습니다!

ps. 확실히 SM7B 의 마이크쪽에 붙였을 때 이쁜 디자인인 걸로 보아, sE 에서 SM7B 와의 테스트를 특히 많이 했을 것 같네요. 국내에서 각 수입처간의 콜라보로 저렴이 세트(?)가 나오기를 기대해봅니다.

55bfdc6af8b1d38fba0a721f900a9c4e_1539327593_152.jpg 

ps2. 신기하게도 저 것이 박스 포장입니다. sE 아이디어팀 칭찬해드리고 싶네요. 낙원이나 용산 들리실 때 가볍게(?) 데리고 올 수 있을 정도입니다. (가방에 다이너마이트를 넣었다라는 압박감(?)과 함께...)


          “Just Wanted You” by MNR PLSR      Cache   Translate Page      
     Two voices and two instruments – yet, “Just Wanted You” is a masterfully assembled monument to contrast. The song from MNR PLSR (pronounced “minor pleasure”) captures the mixed emotions during post-breakup reflections on a loving relationship. 

     Instrumentally, there are occasional touches of percussion, but “Just Wanted You” is primarily comprised of a calming acoustic guitar that seems to have accepted the circumstances and disquieting violin that reveals the remnants of heartache or wishes for what could have been. It may be multiple violins accompanying the minimalist guitar, but our hope is that overdubbing was used, since that thought promotes the solitary sentiment.

     Still, the sheer beauty of “Just Wanted You” is in the vocals. The voices belong to Emily Einhorn and Somer Bingham (and we genuflect). “Just Wanted You” should be added to every playlist dedicated to tracks that are extraordinary because of their vocal chemistry. For most of the song, the lead vocals carry pain, similar to the violin. In contrast, the backing voice has a sweetness and is melodically smoother. Then, the last 40 seconds of “Just Wanted You” are music magic, as the line between lead and backing blurs to almost nothing, the two voices separate to share the chorus, and the caresses of the lyrics become even more apparent.

     “Just Wanted You” is one of the six tracks on MNR PLSR’s debut EP “Gold.” Emily Einhorn and Somer Bingham describe MNR PLSR as a Brooklyn-based Indie Electro/Fringe-Pop duo. They joined forces in 2015. In their first year as a band, they were commissioned to write a series-inspired song for Showtime’s vampire fantasy, "Penny Dreadful." “Last Light” was the soundtrack for the show’s “Behind the Scenes” feature after the finale. More recently, their song “Brilliant Creatures” was in the 2018 Sundance Film Festival favorite “Madeline’s Madeline” (directed by Josephine Decker and starring Miranda July). Both “Last Light” and “Brilliant Creatures” appear on the “Gold” EP.

Lyrics of “Just Wanted You” by MNR PLSR
Hold me underneath the cracks that haunt the ceiling
I know these bodies own the ghosts of what we’re feeling

You said “No”
Home is in a better place
I know
Home is in a better place

I had a dream we were living in
Before the truth came crashing in
I’ll still hold you through the worst of it
I just wanted you to know
I still feel it in the silence
Last echoes of a promise
You would find me in the darkness
I just wanted you to know

Counting palm trees underneath the South Beach sky
Margaritas with the tourists on Ocean Drive
Yeah we’ve been diggin’ through
The mess we made
The chance we blew
And everything is perfect here
Except for you and I

You said “No”
Home is in a better place
I know
Home is in a better place

I had a dream we were living in
Before the truth came crashing in
I’ll still hold you through the worst of it
I just wanted you to know
I still feel it in the silence
Last echoes of a promise
You would find me in the darkness
I just wanted you to know
Just wanted you
Just wanted you to know
Just wanted you
Just wanted you to know

Just wanted you (I had a dream we were living in)
Just wanted you to know
(Before the truth came crashing in)
I just wanted you to know
(I’ll still hold you through the worst of it)
Just wanted you
(I still feel it in the silence)
I just wanted you to know
(Last echoes of a promise)
(You would find me in the darkness)
I just wanted you to know

Lyrics of “Kingdom” by Amory Pitt
Time for us to go,
Mumma said when I awoke,
Pack your bags and clothes,
Left at five without a note,
Our lives, changing all the time,
We drive all throughout the night,
And somedays I'd be crying on your sleeve,
For home had become a dream,
And...

God bless home
God bless home
God bless our kingdom I won’t go,
God bless home
God bless home
God bless our kingdom I won’t go

And I said what’s lost can’t be gained
You can try and look back
But it’ll never be the same...
Our home
Our home

Settled in the old
Country where the moors take hold,
Between the rocks and the water
We would hide and try and lay low,
Her cries haunt me every night
She tries to embrace our plight,
And somedays we’d be working on our knees
For home
Had but become dream,

God bless home
God bless home
God bless our kingdom I won’t go,
God bless home
God bless home
God bless our kingdom I won’t go

And I say what’s lost can’t be gained,
You can try and look back but it’ll
Never be the same now it’s time to arise
We’ve been mourning too long
I’m child to a wild knave
Lost to the law...

God bless home
God bless home
God bless our kingdom I won’t go

And through the sadness and madness, that they brought down
(I will wait for you)
And all the liars and the cheats that broke your crown
(I will wait for you)

     Free and Legal Downloads? Yes, at least temporarily. Bands often temporarily permit free downloads of their releases.  The end of an offer may be based on the expiration of a set period of time or on a limited number of downloads.  But at least for now, here are songs that qualify as Free, Legal and Recommended (FL&R) downloads.
     Finding songs that can be legally downloaded is easy. The difficult task is to find legally downloadable music that we recommend. Our plan is to post at least one FL&R song each Friday/Saturday.

          Urbandawn - Cloudless (feat. Elsa Esmeralda and London Elektricity) [Official Video]      Cache   Translate Page      
Urbandawn - Cloudless is OUT NOW! Buy Here: https://HospitalRecords.lnk.to/cloudlessyb This year Hospital Records announced an unexpected addition to their roster, Brazilian-born Urbandawn. Previously unknown in the spheres of drum and bass yet has shone through with his melodic and soulful drum and bass that’s polished to perfection. Following his well-received debut single “Neon Nights” is the charming “Cloudless” EP - four tracks encompassing every element of Urbandawn from his sweet-natured, warming tones to high-energy dance-floor impacts. Title-track “Cloudless’ is the result of an unexpected session in London Elektricity’s south-east London home-studio. Expect an instantly inviting vocal-lead arrangement performed by “Just One Second” singer Elsa Esmeralda who compliments the instrumental qualities with a beautiful, harmonic performance. Adding another string to his bow is an unorthodox title for an unorthodox track. Screaming for the dance is Urbandawn’s ‘Pavlov’s Dog’ that uses unconventional arrangements and unusual sounds in an effort to make noise against the rising glamorization and formulaic predictability of “EDM culture”. Jazz inspired piano chords lead the way over fierce beats in “Under Your Sheets” followed by a call back to the summer months with “Vona”.

          The Bitcoin Game #60: Dr. Adam Back Part 2 - Liquid      Cache   Translate Page      

Welcome to episode 60 of‚The Bitcoin Game, I'm Rob Mitchell. I'm happy to bring to you part two of my interview with Cypherpunk and CEO of Blockstream, Dr. Adam Back. In this episode, we take a deep dive into Liquid, Blockstream's new federated sidechain. There's a lot more to Liquid than I realized, and it's fascinating to hear tons of details about the protocol. I lead us astray with some of my questions, but Dr. Back never fails to drop tons of crypto-knowledge.

And if you missed the first part of my interview, give episode 59 a listen to hear a great Cypherpunk history lesson.

          ALBUM PREMIERE: LOIMANN deliver a crushing and extreme doom metal beast with 'A Voluntary Lack of Wisdom'      Cache   Translate Page      

Post-Doom Metal unit LOIMANN are about to celebrate the release of their third full length album titled 'A Voluntary Lack of Wisdom' this Friday, November 9th on Argonauta Records.

Formed in 2001 but under the major influences of desert rock bands alike Kyuss, Fu Manchu or Monster Magnet, LOIMANN's sound evolved over the years for a more doom and heavy psych approach. Recorded at O.F.F. Studios in Torino, Italy, during the summer of 2017 with Paul Beauchamp and Salvo Arico (Marmore/Khoy), the band's new work partially changed into the direction compared to their previous records, with a more direct and easy listening sound while never losing their heaviness. With 'A Voluntary Lack of Wisdom', LOIMANN deliver a crushing and extreme doom metal sludgecore beast with big harmonies to be stuck in your head! Find it out yourself, as today LOIMANN stream their brand new record in its entirely and exclusively with us at THE SLUDGELORD.  Now turn it up and let your speakers die!!


The album is available at Argonauta Recordsat THIS location

Üdvözlöm!
Amennyiben céges vagy épp magánjellegű rendezvényén szeretné, ha egy Dj szolgáltatná a zenét, akkor jó helyen jár!
17 éve foglalkozom a lemezek pörgetésével, mely időszakból több mint 10 évig heti rendszerességgel dolgoztam lemezlovasként! Mind e-mellett számos magán rendezvényen is túl vagyok, kezdve az egyszerűbb házibuliktól, a név és születésnapokon át az eljegyzésig és utcabálokig!
Repertoárom igen szélesnek mondható, mivel az 50-es évektől egészen a napjaink pop illetve disco slágerein keresztül minden megtalálható és kérhető nálam, ahol még a Rock és a mulatós-lakodalmas zenék sem kivételek!
Természetesen, a zenei anyag mindig a megrendelőtől függ! Azt játszom, amit kérnek, amire igény van, amit persze nagy vonalakban előre le is egyeztetünk!
Saját hang, fény és látványtechnikai berendezésekkel rendelkezem, így amennyiben engem választ, úgy Önnek gyakorlatilag semmire sem lesz külön gondja!
 
Ha van egy elképzelése, ne tartsa magában, keressen fel s beszéljünk róla, valósítsuk meg!
Erre a legalkalmasabbnak az e-mailt tudom javasolni, mert ezt gyakorlatilag a nap bármely időszakában megírhatja!
Célszerű a rendezvény helyszínét, annak dátumát, a várható vendégek létszámát valamint a korosztályt is megemlíteni a  levelében!
Ezek alapján már sokkal könnyebben tudok konkrét válaszokkal szolgálni, amikor is az egyeztetést folytatásaként válaszlevélben, telefonon vagy akár személyesen pontosítom!
Milyen rendezvényekre vehetők igénybe szolgáltatásaim?
Legyen szó magán rendezvényekről, mint például:
- névnap
- születésnap
- ballagás
- bankett
- szalagavató
- Suli buli
- eljegyzés
- lánybúcsú
- legénybúcsú
- esküvő
- továbbá minden más party jellegű dolog, ahol fontos a jó és színvonalas zeneszolgáltatás! (Pl. baráti kerti party vagy egy szabad strandos Beach buli! )
 
Cége van?
Szeretné a kollégáit megjutalmazni egy fergeteges csapatépítő bulival, hogy jobban összekovácsolódjanak, ezáltal is erősítve a munkahelyi kollektívát és annak morálját!?
- lehet szó kisebb-nagyobb rendezvényeinek felpörgetéséről, mely alkalmával a beszámolókat és minden szóban forgó, ezzel kapcsolatos dolgot meg is hangosítok, így nincs szükség semmilyen más szolgáltatóra vagy egyéb berendezésekre, mert mindennel rendelkezésre állok!
 
Mindezeken felül rendelhet egyedi zenei összeállítást, azaz mixet is! Ez sem egyedi dolog nálam!
(Ilyesmit manapság a mára már egyre jobban elterjedt "vicces esküvői táncokhoz" szoktak kérni! ) : -)
Amit fontosnak vélnék kiemelni, az az, hogy mindezt vállalkozóként teszem, tehát a kedves ügyfél minden esetben számlát fog kapni, valamint ez azt is jelzi, hogy nem a tevékenységem nem összekeverendő a sutyiban, feketén dolgozókéval, akiknek nagyon sok esetben sem kellő tapasztalatuk, sem pedig megfelelő felszerelésük sincs, a minőségi zenei anyagokat már nem is említve!
Nálam mindez legális formában zajlik!
Mint sokan mások, Én magam is szeretem az igényes, minőségi és megbízható eszközöket, ezért a munkámban a fő társam egy Pioneer MEP-7000-es professzionális multimédia player egy Pioneer DJM-600s keverő párosításában!
Amennyiben egyedi zenei kívánság merülne fel, nyugodt szívvel tolmácsolja azt, a lehetetlen fogalmát nem nagyon ismerem, mert hatalmas zenei anyaggal rendelkezem, több száz eredeti CD-lemez formájában is! (általában nem szokott problémát okozni egyetlen kérés sem! )
A szolgáltatásaim leginkább Békés megye határain belül vehetők igénybe, de természetesen más település illetve helyszín is szóba jöhet, amely egy előzetes és részletes egyeztetéssel kivitelezhető!  
A szolgáltatásaim árai minden esetben egyediek és megbeszélés tárgyát képezik!
Szükség esetén party fotózás is igénybe vehető a szolgáltatásaim mellé, profi fotós kollégáim bevonásával!
Amennyiben hirdetésem felkeltette érdeklődését, keressen bizalommal!
 
E-mail: davidistvan84@freemail. hu
Az alábbi médiaportálokon meghallgatható néhány munkám is!
SoundCloud: https: //soundcloud. com/dj-beeboy/tracks

Amennyiben csak felszerelést szeretne bérelni, arra is van lehetőség! Erről részletesebben egy másik hirdetésemben olvashat!

Amennyiben felszerelést szeretne bérelni, akkor látogass el a következő hirdetésemre! ; )

Photo from Thrill Jockey video
Sam Prekop is a musician and photographer based in Chicago.


BA: I've known your music with Sea And Cake since the mid 90s, but I've only recently gotten to know your photos through Instagram. How'd you get into photography?

SP: I grew up around photography, darkroom in the house, the whole thing. My dad is a long time and quite accomplished artist/photographer.  Somehow I avoided it til much later. I went to art school for painting and the two don't coexist, especially in art school.

What do you mean "the two don't coexist"? 

Yes of course they “coexist” I should have said the departments just felt quite separate without much interaction at least from my perspective. I was so focused on painting I’m not even sure I was aware there was a photo department!

Was it a situation as a kid where you didn't want to do what your parents did? Is that why you avoided it when younger?

I don't think so really. I knew pretty early on I wanted to be an artist but I just didn't equate photography with it exactly I suppose. I do recall doing Rayograms. Is that the term placing objects, etc, on photo sensitive material?

Yeah, those are fun. You did those in art school?

At Home.


Nikko, Japan

What does your dad think of your recent photos? Does he follow your Instagram stuff?

He's always been a big supporter of whatever I'm getting up to. He's checked on my Instagram but hasn't kept up. I tried to get him involved but it just didn't click, too small! His main tool is large format studio photography, which doesn't quite translate well on a phone.

The digital divide. What if you show him prints or some other method? Just curious how he'd react from an art/academic perspective. I think your photographic style is unlike what's usually taught in art schools.

Well the IG thing is somewhat recent for me, well a couple of years I guess, but I was for sure focused on making prints and dreaming of making books. But I'd say he thinks I'm a better painter than photographer! And probably wishes I would get back to that instead of music, etc.

What does he think of Sea and Cake's music?

Well I’m not sure how often he really listens to it, but I’m pretty sure he likes it fine. I think he’s most impressed that I’ve eked out a career of doing what I want. He’s always been very supportive of me not getting a real job! 

Are you still painting?

It's been a while but admit I feel like I'm gearing up for it again. I make a lot of drawings that I think keep me somewhat limbered up. I also think of my photos as in a away as "fast" paintings. Really fast!

Split second. Drawing has no chance. Let me go back a second to art school. You didn't do any photo studies there?  

Yeah, no photo stuff in art school.

Did art school help you with looking? Or was it more focused on thinking?

I'd say my focus was looking first, thinking afterward, which is how I make photographs as well. My paintings work along similar lines, hope something happens that's interesting and that you're in a place to recognize it and not screw it up. 

When did you first get into photography?

I started dabbling a bit in designing record covers, but didn't really get into it until on a whim I brought a camera on an early tour, and pretty quickly I fell pretty hard for it. I early on made the connection that in a raw sense, just looking was rewarding work in itself, and the documents became interesting as well.

How do you decide which of your photos to use on album covers?

Well actually I almost never plan on using one of my photos, the exception would be the latest record, but that came about somewhat by accident. While looking through some old 4X6 prints the image I used seemed so just right and that the photo is probably 10 or so years old also contributed a mysteriously detached quality to it even though its subject matter is so familiar to me, but in a transition state, being that it’s a photo of a room that I had just moved into, in a new house at the time, but where I live now. Anyway these are a few of the reasons the image resonated with me so much I think. Also normally I don’t really decide on what an album cover should be until the record's finished. In this case I found the photo and then made the record. It was on my mind during most of the process.

The Sea and Cake, Any Day, 2018 (Thrill Jockey)

What about generally? What are your favorite all-time album covers that use third-party photos? 

Oddly not something I’ve really thought about. but one of my least favorite album covers happens to use the Eggleston photo of the dolls on the Cadillac! I think it’s a Big Star or Alex Chilton record. 

Did you pursue any training as a photographer? 

No training in photography. Years after first getting into it, I then became really interested in the "craft" of making prints in a darkroom. So for five or so years I was focused primarily on black and white work, and teaching myself how to print and process.

Sam Prekop, Photographs
2017 (Presspop Gallery Publications)
Those were the photos in your first book.

Yep. So my darkroom work was going well and then I had kids, and had to shut it down!

Because of kids?

Yeah, we needed the extra bathroom and somehow the whole operation seemed just too close to newborns. I now have a separate studio again and have thought about setting something up again, but really I think I'd shoot for getting my painting studio going first.

So the reason you switched to color was purely due to space limitations? Was there some aesthetic reason too?

In retrospect I consider myself a color photographer. I started with color and then the black and white detour occurred. Wanting a darkroom —among many reasons I was not satisfied with the whole scan and inkjet workflow. I wanted"real" prints, and black and white was what I could pull off. Of course I love black and white work. I just don't think my work is as strong in that area.

Do you make prints now of your color work? 

Actually I don't make prints all that often any more. I mean, I hope that changes but the right project I guess hasn't presented itself. But when I do I scan and then send them out to be printed on "photo paper"

Well that's a print, isn't it?

Yes, of course, but I used to print a whole lot more. Now it's a somewhat rare occasion.

You're shooting film?

Yeah, film.

I asked before if you'd pursued any photographic training but I'd kinda guessed the answer already. What I like about your photos is they are quite raw and unmanipulated. So whatever you're doing, don't change it. I'm curious if you were looking at other photographers as you developed, or had any outside influence besides your dad. How did you find your style?


St. Louis perhaps?

Well yes, I look at a lot of work. I guess these days it's on IG! So I've gone through several periods of obsession with certain photographers. Like a lot of people Eggleston was pretty big for me. I recall seeing his work before making photographs and being distinctly unimpressed. I think it helps to try making you're own work to really appreciate his genius. Walker Evans, Robert Adams, Atget, many of the usual suspects. I also went through a real German photography period which hasn't held up for me quite well.

What do you like about Eggleston's photos? Do you remember the conversion moment for you, when you went from unimpressed to impressed?  

The first Eggleston book I came in contact with was “The Democratic Forest” and I think it’s still my favorite. So I think his work really got to me in book form. I think the sequencing and the color feeling like the subject really spoke to me in a way that a one off photo can’t do. Also the process of having the book and coming back to it again and again only increased the weird fleeting ephemeral quality to the work. And his working statement with regard to a visual democracy, that anything can be a photo has of course been a huge influence on me. 

I think Eggleston is an good example of photography being inside baseball. If you don't make photos he can seem obtuse. A bit less generally accessible than music, perhaps? I guess it depends on the specific photos or specific music

I agree, but a bizarre strength of taking a photo is that it's available to anyone. I've always found this fascinating. It's truly democratic, for better or worse. Music takes more effort I'd say on a base level. But because of photography's inherent qualities, it's very difficult to make an interesting picture.

How do you know when you've made an interesting photo?

Well, I never quite feel like I'm "making" it. I like to think I found my better pictures. While I'm out taking photos is not where it's happening, in a way. For me it's quite intuitive, backed with a lot of looking. The ones that get to me jump out with not a lot of effort. Of course I'm not always right!

I'm curious about your process. How do you go about finding photos?

When I'm really on I'll go out daily to take photos. However it's usually en route to do something else, grocery store, kids, school, etc. So it's pretty much in my neighborhood. I rarely go somewhere specific to take photos, but I will say my neighborhood has been quite an inspiration. I also do quite a bit on tour as well, but I feel like my best work happens around here in Chicago.

Which neighborhood is that?


Chicago

Pilsen. It still feels like "old Chicago". It hasn't changed as much as other areas, and is quite a vivid mash up.

Photography is a good enforcer. It makes you pay attention to the everyday. Just one city block can provide entertainment for hours. Maybe it's a double edged sword though, because eventually it becomes hard to simply be in the world without visualizing it as a photo. That's especially a problem for folks (I'm one too) who find material in their everyday routines. Sometimes I envy studio photographers. They can make their work in one place. Then come home and leave it behind for a while.

I spent some time setting up still life situations to photograph an interesting problem to solve. It's definitely closer to painting than street photography. Lately I've just started taking photos again around here, and being what I'd say is a bit rusty, everything looks new and weird again, pleasant but somewhat awkward.

Are there streets or areas nearby you haven't yet explored with a camera? Or have you seen all of it by now?

I do feel like I’ve seen them all! Well, not really. I like alleys quite a bit in that they’re more similar to each other than say streets are. So alleys always have a sort of neutral appeal to them always nicely unremarkable and it’s likely I’ve seen most of them but who can remember! So they look oddly new all of time. The neighborhood just south of Pilsen is called Bridgeport and it’s really as different from Pilsen as you can get both visually and culturally as well. I actually feel like I work there a bit more lately and it does seem to hold some more surprises for me in a way lately.  

Do you compose music in your head while photographing? Or is that a completely separate activity?

Yeah pretty separate, really. I'm usually working on one or the other.

Why did the German photographers become less interesting to you?

I guess last year I saw a pretty major Thomas Struth retrospective in Munich, and I was quite shocked at how flat it felt to me. I really don't like huge prints at all, and the work felt bored, and maybe he wishes he were making paintings? A bit harsh, I guess! But I can't say I'm opposed to all german photography!

The Düsseldorf stuff is pretty controlled. 

Yeah, I think my initial attraction to it along with everyone else was that they might not be "photos" in a away, and a very specific "European-ness" to them was quite exotic some how.

It's not really my thing either. But I like some of the related offshoots like, say, Stephen Shore or Baltz.

Yes, Shore would be in my foundations list.

What do you think of his Instagram photos?

Hmm, I really like that he makes them, but I'm not always convinced by them. But somehow that doesn't bother me.


Chicago

What's your take on Instagram in general? Do you value the feedback? Do you learn from it?

I guess I was a bit conflicted when I started and really wasn't all that interested, but it's grown on me gradually. Now that I'm into it I'd say now I've learned a tremendous amount from it and really have found crazy value for my work and the work I've found. I think it's changed my work as well. Before IG I really didn't have much of an outlet, and wasn't all that concerned about it either. But now I just appreciate in a weird way what I've been exposed to and the exposure I think it's afforded me as well. 

But it is a real time suck! I am a bit concerned that I'm compelled to post something daily, and fear quite a bit the addiction involved with the "feedback" element.

You've learned a tremendous amount about your own photos? Or about what's out there?

One thing I've caught myself feeling that one photo might be to Instagram focused, an easy shot, and I've been a bit weary of leaning on what I think might work better than another, in an Instagram context. But of course some stuff just works better than others.

Who is someone you've discovered there whose photos have radically opened your eyes or altered your thinking?

Hmm, I wouldn't say radically, but I do have some favorites. @ann.lee, @hitomarunobase, @negativeone2, these are a couple of the top of my head.

@negativeone2, yeah he's extremely unpredictable in a good way. That's Scott that used to live in Portland. Good friend of @faulkner.short. I think he lives in San Antonio now. But his IG feed doesn't really show that. It's all over the place. And time.

Yeah definitely, somehow his work has changed, even though he seems to show a lot of old stuff. But for quite a while I felt we probably just liked the same photographers. But some photos he's gone past that for me.

What do you mean, his work has changed? How so?

When I first started following his work, I must have liked something about it, but it seemed so wildly inconsistent and perhaps that was part of the appeal in a way. But maybe the work hasn’t actually changed as much as I think, but just that he’s gotten much better with the editing. I will say I’m still pretty often surprised by a certain loose almost scattershot way he has with his work but still comes off quite elegantly. 

I feel the self imposed Instagram filter you mentioned earlier. After being on there a little while I realize that some photos work better on IG than others. So it's hard for me to impose the type of conscious inconsistency that makes some books work well, or that Scott employs to great effect. Extrapolate that to the general situation and Instagram is probably having some long-term effects on the overall direction of photography. Another double edged sword. Darn, those things are everywhere.

Yes, definitely.

Maybe Spotify and Soundcloud are having a similar effect on music?

Hmm I guess, I actually don't really participate with that stuff any where near to IG. I know it's happening, just hasn't happened to me.

Why do you distribute your photos and music in such different ways? Is it something about the artistic mediums? Or about you?

I make a lot of electronic music that I’ve been thinking about posting on soundcloud / bandcamp , and I’d be interested in the feedback to it and just having it exist beyond my studio. But since I do have a more “traditional” way of getting my music heard via my record label that could be why I’ve been a bit less urgent about getting it out there in a social media sort of way.  I’m definitely not opposed to it. I think it’s really just a matter of time and a bit of sorting priorities. 


Portland

Do you ever put together shows of your photos? Or maybe have another book planned? Or some other non-IG outlet?

I've had a handful of shows, but for me I think books are the optimal way to deal with photos. I'm always thinking book in the back of my mind, but no plans.

Are there photographers in Chicago you get together with to share work or chat or shoot together? Or is it just you?

Just me. I know a couple of people working, but yeah, I don't feel a part of any "photo community" here. For a while I used a rental darkroom and really enjoyed the general photo banter action.

I think that's another maybe underrecognized aspect to Instagram. It can feel like a community of sorts. Or maybe it can supply community for those folks who don't have it locally.

When I take photos on tour, I find a bit annoying to have other people around! Always having to ask people to move out of the way, etc.

You mean shooting photos with bandmates?

Yeah, band mates. I'm sort of kidding a bit.

I generally like to shot alone, especially in urban scenes. But it's nice each month to hang out with photo buddies and look at pix together.

Yeah, that would be excellent. Archer who's in my band is quite a cheerleader and critic of my work so I'm always eager for his take on things.

Does he take photos?

He does, but it's pretty much in an in passing sort of way.

But he has good feedback?

Years ago he would say he had loftier ambitions for it, I think.

So he dropped photography to do something practical...like join a rock band. Haha.

Well the feedback I'd say wouldn't be perhaps the most hardcore. But we have such a long working history it's valuable.

Friends like that are so valuable they're invaluable.

Agreed.

Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"


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


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


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

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





The Black is Back coalition notes:

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

Why the need to mobilize?

Because of idiots like this.


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








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

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

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

Shame on anyone who buys into her crap.

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

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

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

Oh, look, here's another stupid bitch.

As Trump plays golf & holds rallies at the expense of taxpayers, he has the nerve to tell our servicemen and women that he can't visit them in Iraq or Afghanistan because he's "very busy". These people are fighting for us! Trump is not! Trump doesn't care!
 
 





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

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



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


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



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


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

This appearance is upsetting politicians in Basra.

4 Iraq MPs protest government failure to honour Basra, Basra has 25 seats in Iraqi parliament "Four Iraqi lawmakers have suspended their membership in the government after no ministers were chosen to represent Basra in the government" via
          Social cohesion: Why does it matter in forced displacement situations?      Cache   Translate Page      



When refugees arrive, everything changes for the hosting community. Suddenly, there are large numbers of people who need to use your hospital, your school, and collect water from the same source. You know that they have suffered a traumatic experience, but you may start blaming the newcomers for the pressures that they bring to your community, causing tensions and raising the possibility of potential conflict.


In a new study entitled “Social Cohesion and Forced Displacement,” we review what we know about how to address this challenge. In this interview [link to audio file], I explain why it’s important to make sure that these situations are managed well, both for the refugees and for the hosts. 

What is social cohesion? There are many definitions, but for our purposes, it refers to the way people trust and interact with each other, under a common sense of purpose. It doesn’t mean that everyone thinks or acts in the same way. It doesn’t mean doing away with conflict, as this is part of human life. Rather, conflict needs to be managed constructively so that no one is left out.

Governments hosting large numbers of refugees are concerned about how best to promote social cohesion. What we do in the new study is to collate existing experiences on how people have tried to tackle social cohesion so that we can provide better answers.  

To take this forward, anyone working in these contexts needs to understand the history, social relationships, and perceptions of change among others. When you invest in this knowledge, it will help to better define what needs to be done.

Listen to the full interview to find out more. 

This work is part of the program “Building the Evidence on Protracted Forced Displacement: A Multi-Stakeholder Partnership." funded by UK aid from the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID).


          Premiere: Projector - 'Let Me'      Cache   Translate Page      
Projector
Brighton trio bite back...

Projector are part of Brighton's labyrinthine network of new musicians, a nexus of DIY communities, labels, and party-throwers.

Gigging across the land, the three-piece have distilled their poison down to a fine essence, a kind of unhinged take on post-punk's angular legacy.

Working with Roadkill Records, debut EP 'How Does It Feel?' emerges this Friday (November 9th).

It's a potent first offering, with Projector managing to replicate their feral live show on tape alongside producer Ben Hampson.

We're able to share 'Let Me' and it's a snappy, biting slice of guitar music, all sharp edges and dramatic about-turns.

A neck-snapping, spine-shattering offering, you can check it out below.

Catch Projector at the following shows:

KASAI has a perfectionist streak.

The West London riser wants everything she puts her name against to be just right, meaning that releases take months, if not years, to complete.

New song 'Habit' is online now, a poised, precocious piece of R&B soaked songwriting, a murky, low slung jammer dominated by that powerful vocal.

Newly inking a publishing deal with Roc Nation, KASAI's fastidious artistry and twilight aesthetic is set to excel in 2019.

Virginia rapper Rozwell Fitzroy spars with the Bolton newcomer...

Bolton newcomer Chrystal has shared superb new song 'Vibe' - tune in now.

The vocalist's R&B soaked approach matches an innate pop nous to some left field curiosities, flushing her work with spectral electronics amid divine melody.

New song 'Vibe' continues her rise, with the bouncy digital production providing the perfect foundation for her buoyant vocal.

John Calvert is producer and collaborator, and his input helped unlock something within Chrystal, something connected to a very personal place.

She comments: “I was in quite a bad place by the second time I worked with John. I really didn't think I was going to write anything so uplifting, but by the first day we'd finished two songs, ‘Vibe’ being one of them. John just has a natural way of making you feel relaxed, which helps me to write better songs, plus he's just mad talented and can make anything come to life with production.”

Chrystal finishes: “To me this song represents that no matter how bad you think things are, while you're living on this earth, you will always have another chance. It's about gracefully letting go of the past and moving forward with hope.”

Ольгу Глацких сливают: после скандального заявления чиновницы неизвестные распространяют аудиокомпромат
Фото: Департамент информполитики Свердловской области
Редакция 66.RU получила аудиозапись, где девушка с голосом, похожим на голос оскандалившейся главы Департамента молодежной политики, подводит итоги года работы своего подразделения. Главная героиня записи сама называет себя Ольгой Вячеславовной, матерится, рассказывает о том, как она была назначена на должность, и весьма своеобразно благодарит подчиненных за работу. Враги чиновницы явно хотят, чтобы на волне скандала ее уволили.

Запись сделана, предположительно, во время неформального собрания в департаменте молодежной политики Свердловской области. Женщина, называющая себя Ольгой Вячеславовной, обращается как минимум к двум сотрудникам организационно-правового отдела. «Пузырева косички наплела, с бокальчиком сидит», — говорит главная героиня, возможно, указывая на главного специалиста Дарью Пузыреву. «Мехман тоже поражен, потому что за текущий год большой оборот нормативки», — продолжает она в адрес, предположительно, замначальника отдела Мехмана Мамедова.

Судя по тону, Ольга Вячеславовна нетрезва. Она откровенничает, вспоминая о том, как стала директором департамента молодежной политики. «Мне 27 лет. Что такое 27 лет и орган исполнительной власти? Я понятия не имею, что такое бюджет. Но у меня не было других альтернатив, кроме того, как согласиться с губернатором. Все меня поздравляли. А с чем поздравлять? Мне дали орган исполнительной власти, а я не знаю, что с ним делать», — признается женщина.

Вот полная записьОсторожно, присутствует ненормативная лексика.

Аудио прислали в редакцию после скандального заявления Ольги Глацких, которое стало широко известно 5 ноября. Во время поездки в Кировград чиновница приняла участие в круглом столе горадминистрации, где присутствовали педагоги дополнительного образования и старшеклассники. Глацких, отвечая на вопрос о финансировании, заявила, что государство детям ничего не должно, потому что не просило у родителей их рожать. Спустя некоторое время сначала чиновница отказалась от своих слов, а затем извинилась за них. «Я признаю, что может эта мысль была выражена чересчур прямолинейно («Государство вам ничего не должно»), и приношу свои извинения за столь резкое высказывание. Но из общего контекста понятно, что это было сказано лишь для того, чтобы усилить мотивацию молодежи самостоятельно и активно развиваться и вкладывать собственную энергию и силу в самостановление, а не только рассчитывать на государство», — цитирует Глацких ТАСС.

К скандалу подключились руководители «Юнармии», у которых есть претензии к Глацких. Она требует от юнармейских клубов вернуть выданные им в 2017 году комплекты зимней формы. Это поручение необходимо выполнить до 26 ноября 2018 года.

Предложения об увольнении директора департамента молодежной политики высказали экс-мэр Екатеринбурга Евгений Ройзман, местные коммунисты и пользователи соцсетей. Губернатор Свердловской области Евгений Куйвашев, в свою очередь, заявил, что послушает полную запись с круглого стола и лично встретится с подчиненной, чтобы выяснить ее позицию. Он выразил сожаление за ее слова.

Alexis Taylor
Hot Chip frontman delves into his record bag...

Alexis Taylor likes to keep us on our toes.

As frontman with Hot Chip his keening, plaintive vocals have smothered themselves on some of most hopelessly affecting electronic pop to emerge from these isles, minute jewels that connect club culture to the charts.

His solo career, though, tends to tread in the left field, oblique experiments that allow Alexis to focus on other aspects of his musical identity.

New solo album 'Beautiful Thing' is out now, and it flips that dynamic on its head, offering some superb pop moments alongside his experimental sensibilities.

Set to support Baxter Dury this month on a flurry of live shows, Alexis has pieced together this special mix detailing a few of his current obsessions and influences.

It's heady fare, moving from club crunchers through to oblique electronics, all bound by Alexis Taylor's innate creative touch.

Tune in now.

In the years after the world war that ravaged the Ottoman Empire, Hassan left his native village in modern-day Lebanon to join his parents and siblings in the growing Midwest town of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. To do so, he had to sidestep the stringent immigration quotas newly implemented by the US. But years later, when the authorities learned that he entered and was living in the US illegally, he was threatened with deportation. Through Hassan's story, we'll learn about the experience of Arab migration to the United States and get to know the Syrian-American community that despite numbering in the hundreds of thousands by the 1920s, found itself repeatedly compelled to prove its worthiness to be included in a society where nativism was on the rise and being entitled to full citizenship often meant being considered white.

This episode is part of our investigative series Deporting Ottoman Americans.

          The world is not an engineering problem - an argument against technocracy      Cache   Translate Page      

Chris Dillow has an interesting blog post about the problems with what he calls 'liberal technocracy':
This urge to express all arguments in consequentialist terms is an admission that liberal technocracy has won. The only acceptable arguments for any policy, it is believed, are consequentialist ones – ideally, along the lines of making us materially better off. And everybody seems to accept Mill’s harm principle, and thus argue for bans on the – often elusive – grounds that the activity in question does indeed impose harms onto others.
You only need look at the new found 'neoliberalism' of the Adam Smith Institute to see the onward march of this "what works is what's right" approach to policy-making. Dillow speaks of how some things are, as it were, felt rather than analysed - the "best case for Brexit is an intrinsic one – that it’ll give us a sense of independence and sovereignty" and when advocates try to set out economic utilitarian gains from leaving their argument weakens. I once wrote a similar thing about Scottish independence:
It's the idea of Scotland in that quote from Henry Scott Riddell's 'Scotland Yet' - not about some idea of superiority, certainly no hatred or dislike, just a message of pride, joy and love for the place. And the nation - that thing we try to define with grand words - is all those who share those emotions, that association.

When Kipling wrote about men having small hearts it was about these feelings - we cannot love everywhere and we cannot expect everyone to love the place we love. But we can share that love with those who do and that is nationhood. No government, no kings, no lords, no oil, no First Minister. Just people placing their boots in the soil and saying "this is my country and I'll work with you to make it better".

If you want independence for reason of blood, for reason of hatred or for reason of greed then you deserve to lose. But if you want independence for pride, joy and love of the place that is Scotland then - for what it's worth - you have my blessing and I wish you well.
The idea here is something we've lost from our thinking, one of those virtues Deirdre McCloskey writes about, the idea of faith, that there are things we have to take as felt not as demonstrated by science. This rejection of maximising utility as the only purpose of public policy is perhaps the single most important thing in McCloskey's triology on bourgeois virtues - that ideas matter as much as science does. And it is true since the things we feel cannot be defined by utilitarian or consequentialist argument - here's economist Don Boudreaux:
There are no scientific ‘solutions’ to society's problems. This reality is so in part because in many cases people legitimately disagree over what arranged changes are desirable and which are undesirable. For example, some people join me in celebrating marijuana legalization; other people disagree sincerely and deeply even if there is no disagreement over the predicted health and behavioral effects of marijuana use. There is no scientific ‘solution’ to this disagreement or to any other disagreement that turns on differences in values and preferences.
This reminds me of P J O'Rourke speaking of his politics - "I'm personally conservative" says O'Rourke but believes government, public policy, should be as libertarian as possible. So a man who believes drinking and smoking are sinful can, at the same time as holding these views, support the liberalisation of their use. But, it is more likely that such a person for reasons of faith - belief without evidence - will oppose liberal drinking laws and even propose stricter temperance or prohibition.

Back at university we coined the term "soft loo-paper conservatism" to describe the approach to student politics where the only care was the good management of the student union and its services to the student body (such as, hence the phrase, insisting on better toilet paper in the union buildings' loos). Management was all that matters - Boudreaux quotes a cynical comment from James Buchanan on economists and public policy:
Once he has defined his social welfare function, his public interest, he can advance solutions to all of society’s economic ills, solutions that government, as deus ex machina, is, of course, expected to implement.
The problem is that politics just doesn't work like this - people have views, felt experiences, faith meaning that the answer might be a different one from that produced through the expert's systems. Nor can we ever be perfectly sure that the expert's answer isn't sub-optimal - there are plenty of examples of technocratic solutions to perceived problems that have failed or, in solving one problem, merely acted to create three new ones. Raising the duty on fags seems to work as a means of reducing their consumption but there's a point at which it creates an opportunity for criminal arbitrage - the cost of making a cigarette is so much lower that the sale price it's worth the risk for the criminal to create a black market.

It seems right that government should seek the 'right' solutions in its policy-making but this assumes that there is such a solution and, indeed, that the negatives of such a policy don't outweigh the benefits of the solution. After all, if we take the utilitarian argument in its entirety, it begins to make the case for a sort of Huxley-esque benign authoritarianism, a Singapore-on-Steroids. For my part, I prefer things a little messy because not only are the solutions so often dependent on coercion but they also require that the ordinary citizen's faith and feelings are denied. Maximising utility seems a good thing but it is not the main reason why people do things like set up business, create charities, build village halls, paint, sing, create or innovate. Technocracy treats the world as an engineering problem when it's an unfolding story, explorers in a dense jungle not white-coated scientists in a laboratory.

          The distractions and false gods      Cache   Translate Page      

  1. As I said yesterday, if you’re on the Left, don’t play this Soros v Bannon Culture Wars game. Bannon is not your friend, but neither is Soros, a billionaire hedge fund trader. Just because Bannonites don’t like him, doesn’t make him a hero: via



From his column:

We can accurately talk about the George Sorosification of the liberal-left and the Steve Bannonisation of the Right in both the US and UK.
The pressure to join one side or the other and play the nationalist v globalist, liberal v conservative culture wars game is enormous. Nevertheless, it should be resisted.
Because if you do ‘play the game', you'll be serving the interests of capital. Don't be fooled by the rhetoric.
The disciples of Steve Bannon want us to believe they're standing up for ‘the masses' against  the likes of George Soros. But genuine populists prioritise public ownership, not obsessing about race and religion and promoting  ideas about a ‘clash of civilisations‘. In any, event the idea that Steve Bannon- like George Soros- is a tribune of the people is absurd. After all the man is a former Goldman Sachs investment banker and Hollywood producer, and you don't get much more 'insider' than that, do you?

The political battles we need to be fighting are the ones that Wall Street financiers and hedge fund billionaires don't want us to fight.

There are so many distractions that are used to keep us from calling for an end to war, from calling for Medicare For All, from calling for fair wages.  So much matters and yet it's all about turning us into passive spectators who root for false gods. 

There are real issues.  These false gods aren't going to address them, they're just going to lock up even more people and pretend like they've done something. 

We need to take ownership of our lives and we can't do that while we play the 'let's worship' whatever politician and pretend we aren't worthy of being near them.  Those asses work for us, they should fear us, they should fear how we might vote.


"Iraq snapshot" (THE COMMON ILLS):
Friday, November 2, 2018.  Actions in DC this weekend as the never-ending wars continue.


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


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

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





The Black is Back coalition notes:

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

Why the need to mobilize?

Because of idiots like this.


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








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

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

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

Shame on anyone who buys into her crap.

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

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

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

Oh, look, here's another stupid bitch.

As Trump plays golf & holds rallies at the expense of taxpayers, he has the nerve to tell our servicemen and women that he can't visit them in Iraq or Afghanistan because he's "very busy". These people are fighting for us! Trump is not! Trump doesn't care!
 
 





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

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



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

Ambos modelos cuentan con un diseño compacto en forma de pastilla de dimensiones prácticamente idénticas que cabe en la palma de la mano. Sin embargo, mientras que el Google Mini está cubierto de tela de malla, este material solo lo encontramos en el lateral del Echo Dot. ¿Qué cubre la zona superior del altavoz de Amazon? La principal diferencia de diseño entre uno y otro: los botones.

Frontal

Y es que aunque ambos altavoces pueden ser controlados mediante la voz, la superficie del Echo Dot dispone de botones, lo que permite activar el asistente y otras acciones, ajustar el volumen y la opción de silenciar el micrófono. En el caso del Google Home Mini, tenemos que buscar en la base el botón para silenciar el micrófono y modificar el volumen deslizando a un lado u otro de la base, un uso menos intuitivo que invita a controlarlo mediante la voz.

En lo referente a colores, el Echo Dot permite elegir entre una escala de tres grises y el Google Home Mini está disponible en gris, negro y color coral. Los dos altavoces disponen de luces LED que se activan cuando están en modo escucha, solo que mientras que en el Google Mini son 4 lucecitas en línea, la distribución del Echo Dot es anular.

Conectividad

Ambos altavoces disponen de Wi-Fi tanto en una banda como en dual (para los routers más modernos) y con Bluetooth, si bien en el Google Home Mini se especifica únicamente la versión Bluetooth 4.1 y en el Echo Dot se detalla la integración de perfiles A2DP y AVRCP, algo que no se especifica en el altavoz de Google.

¿Para qué sirven estos perfiles Bluetooth del Echo Dot? El A2DP es el perfil de distribución de audio avanzada, posibilitando la transmisión de señales de audio estéreo con una calidad superior a la que ofrecen otros perfiles como por ejemplo HSP y HFP. El AVRCP o perfil de control remoto de audio y vídeo se emplea para enviar comandos desde controladores a dispositivos.

Otro detalle importante: el control por voz del Echo Dot no es compatible con los dispositivos Mac OS X ni con altavoces Bluetooth que requieran un código PIN. Asimismo, el Echo Dot cuenta con una salida de audio auxiliar con jack de 3,5 milímetros, lo que permite conectarlo a otro altavoz más grande mediante este puerto. En el caso del Google Home Mini, la conexión a otro altavoz mayor también es posible, pero a través de la app Google Home.

En cuanto a alimentación, el Google Home Mini ha de conectarse a la corriente mediante un cable con toma microUSB con 5 V a 1,8 A y el Echo Dot con un adaptador de corriente DC de 15 W.

Sonido

A falta de la experiencia de probar su sonido en vivo, solo nos queda prestar atención a sus especificaciones técnicas. Un vistazo a los altavoces que integran cada uno de los modelos nos devuelve un altavoz de 41 mm en el caso del Echo Dot y un tranductor de 40 milímetros para el Google Home Mini.

La principal diferencia con sus hermanos mayores radica en el sonido: estos altavoces son suficiente para interactuar con el asistente de voz, pero no como equipo de sonido para el hogar

En ambos casos se trata de dimensiones suficientes para interactuar con los asistentes de voz, pero insuficientes para ser el principal sistema de sonido de tu hogar, de ahí que ambos permitan el modo multiroom.

En cuanto a formatos compatibles, el Echo Dot reproduce AAC/MP4, MP3, HLS, PLS y M3U y el Google Home Mini hace lo propio con los formatos HE-AAC, LC-AAC, MP3, Vorbis, WAV (LPCM), Opus y FLAC.

Funcionalidad y compatibilidad

El alma de los altavoces inteligentes son sus asistentes de voz y lo que podamos hacer con ellos. Es importante tener en cuenta que aunque se trate de los respectivos modelos de entrada de Amazon y Google, este aspecto afecta esencialmente a características relativas al sonido como son la potencia, graves y agudos o la frecuencia.

Sin embargo, la funcionalidad es idéntica. Es decir, que Alexa hará lo mismo en el Echo Dot que en el modelo más completo de Amazon, el Echo Plus (149 euros). Del mismo modo, las funciones de Google Assistant son iguales en el Google Home Mini y en el Google Home (149 euros).

Asimismo, ambos dispositivos pueden acceder a "skills" o acciones que nos proporcionen recetas, noticias, reservas, bromas y mucho más. También son capaces de responder a preguntas directas como "qué tiempo hace", preguntas indirectas o reflexiones en voz alta "qué frío hace" y funcionan como asistente personal configurando recordatorios o alarmas. Sin ir más lejos, aquí puedes ver qué puedes hacer con Alexa y también qué puedes hacer con Google Home Mini.

Así, tanto Google Assistant como Alexa gozan de un amplio ecosistema de alianzas con diversos fabricantes gracias a los cuales es posible encontrar dispositivos y gadgets compatibles con ambos asistentes.

Aquí tienes una pequeña tabla resumen con marcas y dispositivos más frecuentes que puedes controlar mediante Echo Dot u Google Home Mini:

Bombillas / enchufes Compatible con Alexa Compatible con Google Assistant
Philips Hue Si Si
LIFX Si Si
Lightify Si No
Bombillas TP-Link Si Si
Belkin Wemo Si Si
D-Link Si No
Leviton (enchufes) Si No
Logitech Si Si

Termostatos Compatible con Alexa Compatible con Google Assistant
Nest Si Si
Ecobee4 Si Si
Honeywell Si No
Sensi Si Si
Netatmo Si No
Otros Compatible con Alexa Compatible con Google Assistant
Roomba Si Si
Neato Si Si
Cerraduras August Si Si
IFTTT Si Si

Pero además de la conectividad mediante hardware, los altavoces inteligentes también pueden conectarse con servicios en streaming. De hecho, antes de decidirte por un altavoz u otro es crucial saber si es compatible con diferentes servicios en streaming:

Servicio streaming Compatible con Amazon Echo Compatible con Google Home
Spotify Premium Si Si
Spotify Free No Si
TuneIn Si Si
Pandora Si Si
YouTube Red No Si
Google Play No Si
Amazon Music Si No
Amazon Prime Unlimited Si No
Audible Si Si
Apple Music No Si
Tidal No Si
Soundcloud No Si

De este modo, si haces uso de los servicios de Google, o bien cuentas con Spotify gratis o Apple Music, el Google Home Mini es la opción más indicada. Si por el contrario eres usuario de los servicios de streaming de Amazon, entonces los altavoces Echo son los más adecuados.

Precio

Amazon

Uno de los principales atractivos de estos altavoces inteligentes es su precio. Y es que el Google Home Mini cuestan prácticamente lo mismo: 59 euros para el altavoz de Google y 59,99 euros el Echo Dot, si bien ambos tuvieron ofertas de lanzamiento. Además, Amazon también comercializa kits compuestos por el Echo Dot y algún elemento domótico, por ejemplo con las Philips Hue (104,99 euros) o con el enchufe inteligente de Amazon (74,99 euros).

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

 

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

 

Here it is, from December 1, 2007:



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

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


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

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

 

 

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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


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


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


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


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

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





The Black is Back coalition notes:

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

BREAKING: BAP has launched its campaign to shut down and end the U.S. occupation of Africa! Read our statement and find out how you can get involved 👉🏿





Why the need to mobilize?

Because of idiots like this.




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








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

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

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

Shame on anyone who buys into her crap.

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

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

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

Oh, look, here's another stupid bitch.



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

These people are fighting for us!  Trump is not!

Trump doesn't care!







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

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



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




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





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


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

This appearance is upsetting politicians in Basra.

          Mad Crush Gives Us a Reason to "Stay in Bed" (premiere)      Cache   Translate Page      


None


While Mad Crush are set to release their self-titled debut LP, Joanna Sattin and John Elderkin have been collaborating for years. That goes to explain the artists' inimitable, undeniable qualities as a duo, playing off of one another with an instantly infectious melding of charisma, heart, and sass. Though Mad Crush is a serious endeavor for the North Carolina front-people and their band—drummer Chuck Garrison and violinist Laura Thomas—it's their knack for often imbuing humor in their work alongside the heartache that elevates them onto a plane relative to other great duos in roots music, like Johnny Cash and June Carter. They take influence from these very names, and it shows in their delightful, banter-full work.

"Stay in Bed" captivates with its heartful charms straightaway, with a lilting arrangement that accentuates the back-and-forth between Sattin and Elderkin. The acoustic number comes further alive with its subtle, swirling incorporation of Thomas' fiddle, flourishing in vibrant colors across the song's bridge.

On the song, Elderkin tells PopMatters, "I'd been listening to Porter Wagoner and Dolly Parton duets after a heavy dose of June Carter and Johnny Cash. The sassy back-and-forth songs. But this one popped out as its own thing, thankfully. I like that it uses mundane chores as a way into daydreaming about love. Take a good listen to Laura Thomas' violin solo here. It's fabulous, and it helped define the Mad Crush sound. She creates a space that's a little bit country but also formal in a slightly classical way, too. We all followed her lead from here."

          "The Well-Being of Humanity Is the Biggest Driving Force For Scientific Innovation"      Cache   Translate Page      
President Donald J. Trump offers a salute as he boards Marine One Friday, N. 2, 2018, on the South Lawn of the White Houses en route to Joint Base Andrews, Md. (Official White House Photo by Shealah Craighead)

Three major strategic developments are underway which are conjointly decisive for mankind's emerging future.

1) The U.S. mid-term elections have concluded, with the future of the British attempted coup d'état against the Trump administration at stake. At issue is the crucial question of U.S. relations with Russia and China, including Trump's determination to hold personal summit meetings with Presidents Putin and Xi in the immediate future. War and peace, and the economic reconstruction of the planet around the Belt and Road Initiative, hang in the balance.

2) The Schiller Institute held a seminar in Paris yesterday to present the just-published French-language version of "The New Silk Road Becomes the World Land-Bridge" special report, featuring Lyndon LaRouche's scientific approach to physical economy. Before a high-level audience of over 100, including diplomats, other VIPs and media, Helga Zepp-LaRouche delivered the keynote presentation, followed by short reports from Karel Vereycken, Sebastien Perimony and Odile Mojon. Mrs. Zepp-LaRouche just recently returned from a high-profile visit to Russia on the eve of the U.S. elections, where her in-depth discussion of what is actually at stake in those elections, and the global policy solutions to the crisis provided by Lyndon LaRouche, continues to resonate deeply both in Russia and internationally.

3) The China International Import Expo (CIIE) in Shanghai continued into its second day, where business and political leaders from across the planet assembled to build the Belt and Road alternative to the collapsing trans-Atlantic financial system. China's own development, and its commitment to "a shared future for humanity," continue to inspire other nations and leaders into action. Exemplary are the words of Japan's former Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda, who expressed admiration over the way that "China has helped Africa build plentiful infrastructure and improve people's livelihood. If Japan can join China in assisting Africa's development, it would greatly benefit the African people. It is beneficial not only to Africa's economy, but also to world peace and development."

The guiding approach to that ongoing CIIE meeting was provided in yesterday's keynote address by President Xi Jinping, whose economic views, as far as the dying British Empire is concerned, are sounding more and more like "Lyndon LaRouche with Chinese characteristics":

"It is important for all countries to pursue innovative growth and speed up the transformation of growth drivers," Xi stated. "Innovation is the premier engine for development. Only with bold innovation and reform can we break the bottlenecks in global growth. The world economy has just emerged from the shadow of the international financial crisis and recovery is still unstable. There is an urgent need for concerted efforts of countries in the world to promote scientific innovation and foster new growth drivers. The well-being of humanity is the biggest driving force for scientific innovation.... We need to seize the opportunities presented by the new round of technological and industrial revolution, strengthen cooperation in frontier sectors ... and work together to foster new technologies, new industries, and new forms and models of business."


          Put an End To Three Years' *British* Election Meddling and British Imperial War      Cache   Translate Page      

With all indications of a very large final vote total in "game-changing" U.S. midterm elections, the outcome for both Houses of Congress remains in doubt. What is not in doubt, is that there will be a sharp change in the now three year-long, furious but unsuccessful drive to destroy President Trump's credibility and ability to set policy, and to force him out of office. Either that drive will end for good, or it will escalate dramatically. The President has continued to insist on the value of peace and cooperation with other major nuclear powers — has even campaigned before tens of thousands for peace and good relations with Russia and China. His attackers have made of President Putin the direst enemy image, called Trump a "puppet" for meeting with the Russian President, and demanded a war confrontation with Russia.

Thus the outcome of peace or war is underlying the "issues" being argued in the election's final days.

The LaRouche Political Action Committee has made a fundamental change in the election since it introduced, with no support 15 months ago, the facts that showed British intelligence was behind the drive against Trump as candidate and President, including Robert Mueller's "Russiagate" legal assassination. With LaRouchePAC's mobilization, those facts became known, became discussed in committees of Congress, were realized and publicly confirmed by prominent supporters of the President, eventually were exposed to millions.

LaRouchePAC has contributed a second change: demonstrating that economic progress of a scale not seen since Franklin Roosevelt's Presidency could be unleashed, by President Trump being free to collaborate in the Belt and Road Initiative of China, and by the implementation of Lyndon LaRouche's "four laws" for economic development. This contribution was spearheaded by Kesha Rogers' dynamic campaign in Texas against Al "Impeachment" Green and for what she laid out as "the North American Belt and Road Initiative.

British geopolitics is based on continuous wars of choice and even global war confrontations.

Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp-LaRouche noted in discussing the situation today that if the focus on British interference rises in the United States from Election Day, a dramatic change in policy could result. And if President Trump is strengthened, she would be confident that international relations will take a positive turn through his meetings with Presidents Putin and Xi Jinping over the next weeks and months.

Thus the campaign for a four-power New Bretton Woods credit system for development, can be escalated. London's financial and geopolitical empire can be ended.


          Final Day before Election — Learn the Lesson of The Great War      Cache   Translate Page      

Monday November 5, the last day before the most important U.S. midterm election in history, will see Donald Trump speak at three rallies — in Cleveland, Ohio; Fort Wayne, Indiana; and Cape Girardeau, Missouri. The fake-news press is hysterical that Donald Trump may have overcome the British-instigated McCarthyite witch hunt against him, aimed at provoking a war with Russia and China. This is exemplified by the War Party's leading newspaper, the Washington Post, whose lead op-ed today by Dana Milbank is titled: "We Have No Excuses Now. Our Eyes Are Wide Open." He details what he views as Trump's evil ways, including: "He took Vladimir Putin's word over that of the U.S. intelligence community, accepting Russia's denial that it interfered in our election." He concludes: "Will we take a step, even a small one, back from the ugliness and the race-baiting that has engulfed our country? Or will we affirm that we are really the intolerant and frightened people Donald Trump has made us out to be?"

But the truth is far different than the evil {Washington Post} would have Americans believe. Helga Zepp-LaRouche, looking ahead to the critical meeting to take place between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin on the sideline of the event honoring the 100th Anniversary of the World War I Armistice, taking place in Paris on Nov. 11, issued a statement: "Sleepwalking — Have we learned how the First World War Came About?" In reporting on her recent trip to Moscow, she notes that her many meetings with representatives of leading institutions gave her a "first-hand impression of what the Russian point of view of the strategic situation looks like. From the various steps taken by the West and NATO — NATO's expansion up to the Russian borders, the build-up of the missile defense system in Romania and Poland which can be transformed into an offensive system within a very short time, the cancellation of the ABM Treaty, and now of the INF Treaty, as well as the different 'narratives' portraying Russia as the enemy image and Putin as a demon — the Russian leadership has very clearly drawn the conclusion that a major war cannot be ruled out."

World War I had no legitimate cause. The British believed in the Halford Mackinder doctrine of "geopolitics," that in order to sustain their power, based on their control of the seas and the global financial system, they needed to prevent any coalition of nations across Eurasia from achieving the power to challenge the Empire. Such development projects as Germany's Berlin-Baghdad Railroad, or Russia's Trans-Siberian Railroad, creating connectivity among the nations of Eurasia, were in themselves intolerable threats to the Empire. Better to blow things up with a "lovely little war," to keep the world divided and weak. That war so destroyed Europe and so punished the loser Germany, that the rise of Hitler and the horror of World War II was the almost inevitable result.

And so, again today, the British Empire and its assets in the U.S. have unleashed hysteria and lies against Russia and China, against the "connectivity" of the New Silk Road. They are clearly willing to blow it up, if necessary to preserve the Empire — mistakenly called "our Western way of life" or the "rule of law." What they fear most is the fact that nearly every nation of Asia, Africa, Ibero-America, and even many European nations, are openly joining with Russia and China in the new paradigm of "win-win" development through the Belt and Road, which could spell the end of the Empire — especially if the upstart President of the United States were allowed to carry out his stated intention to establish friendly relations between the United States and Russia and China. In addition to the sideline meeting with Putin in Paris, Trump plans to hold full summit meetings with both Putin and Xi Jinping at the end of November at the G20 Summit in Argentina, just a few weeks after the midterm election.

Helga Zepp-LaRouche concludes her statement by calling for an end to geopolitics altogether, to replace it "with a new paradigm of the idea of mankind as a whole.... If we have learned anything from the tragedies of the 20th century, then we must now learn to think about mankind in a completely different way." Americans will be tested Tuesday, to reject the "Democratic" War Party, and to join the urgent campaign to build that new paradigm.

          How We Develop New Features Using Offsites and Clean Architecture      Cache   Translate Page      

The current SoundCloud iOS App was built back in 2014, resulting in a huge codebase consisting of both Objective-C and Swift, with multiple architectural patterns and lots of legacy code. With time, the team changed and the platform evolved, so for the current iOS Team, maintenance, bug fixing, and implementing new features are all challenges.

In 2017, our team of six engineers wanted to try out a clean architectural pattern and decided to use VIPER.

I first read about VIPER four years ago in a post published by objc.io. This post is probably the most well-known guide to VIPER. At the time, most iOS applications were using Apple’s Model View Controller (MVC) pattern. This pattern is well suited for relatively small teams where there is only one developer working on one of the components (the Model, the View, or the Controller) at a time. VIPER, on the other hand, is good for larger teams and for parallelizing work among them, particularly when an app is big and complex, which the SoundCloud app is.

In May 2017 when I joined SoundCloud, I was excited to improve the massive codebase with my previous learnings. Prior to starting at SoundCloud, I’d used VIPER on a project written in Swift in hopes of avoiding the obstacles of MVC. Overall, I had a really positive experience and I was looking forward to exploring it more, and my work at SoundCloud provided the perfect opportunity to do this.

Because I was the only one on the team familiar with VIPER, we organized a one-day workshop where I explained the VIPER pattern to the team and we rewrote an existing screen (the System Playlist) with it. The feedback from the team was quite positive and everyone was excited to start using it. As a result, we went on to write the new Mini Player feature using VIPER, and because it was successful, we’ve since used VIPER to write additional features.

Offsites

Every time we set out to write a new feature, we begin with a project kickoff, which is where we define what we are doing and why. Only two engineers, the project’s point people, are present for the kickoff. Part of their responsibility is to organize an offsite to show the feature to the team and brainstorm on the implementation.

I always liked how hackathons are done. The fast-paced environment, the chaos, the freedom, the focus on the problem without any interruption, and the brainstorming with the people in the room are all things that enable productivity. We can quickly solve a problem and accomplish a shared goal in a much shorter period, all while having fun at the same time.

Offsites remind me of hackathons because they consist of a full day at another location, without any meetings and with food and drinks. In other words, they’re different than the usual work day. Working toward a goal together, all while having fun, helps with knowledge sharing and team bonding.

The day starts with an explanation of the feature in question and the UX, followed up by questions to clarify the functionalities. The intention here is to have everyone on the same page without any misunderstandings. Once we have enough information, we start on the Contract for the new feature.

For us, the Contract is the most important file, and it’s where all protocols of the VIPER module are defined. This provides a quick and easy overview of the behavior of the feature — as you can see here — and helps us organize our ideas.

Example

As an example, here is how we might build a generic feature. It assumes some familiarity with VIPER, but for more details on the way we at SoundCloud use VIPER, see here.

We start with a simple application that shows a list of tracks, as seen in the image below.

As we can see:

  • The user sees a list of tracks.
  • The user can add a track.
  • The user can delete a track.

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

Contract

We tend to follow a specific order to create the Contract (Protocols). This doesn’t mean that a different order would be worse; this is just the way the conversation usually flows.

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

Presenting

We start with the Presenting protocol, which handles UI events as follows.

This will probably call the Interactor to fetch the data:

viewDidLoad()

This will probably go to the Router to show another screen or call the Interactor to immediately add a new value:

didTapAdd(title: String, artist: String)

This will receive the index of the row and find which track should be deleted. It will probably call the Interactor to delete the track:

didSwipeToDelete(at row: Int)

Interacting

Next, we develop the Interacting protocol because the UI interactions are already defined in the Presenting protocol.

We found that using delegate over blocks between the components is clearer and more organized, given we often call the same delegate in multiple methods.

This is how the Interacting protocol will look:

fetchTracks()
addTrack(title: String, artist: String)
delete(track: Track)

InteractorDelegate

It is time to go back to the View. So next is the InteractorDelegate, which is implemented by the Presenter. You can expect something like this:

didFetch(tracks: [Track])
handle(error: ServiceError)

Viewing

The Viewing protocol comes next, with the following:

update(viewModels: [TrackViewModel])

The above receives an array of ViewModels to be displayed in the TableView. Usually, when we delete something, we call the same method with the items updated. If necessary, we can create a method to update a specific item at the index.

show(error: String)

The above receives a ViewModel or a String to be shown.

showLoadingIndicator()
hideLoadingIndicator()

Routing

Let’s assume that tapping on a track will direct to another screen with more detail.

The Routing protocol will just present the detail screen, like so:

presentDetailScreen()

It will get another Builder to retrieve the module and to use the weak ViewController to show the next screen.

Hands On

Before we start coding, we select the most challenging parts to work on. Depending on the project, it could be a UI interaction, or it could be the decoupling of a class, a service, or even some of the VIPER components.

We split the team in groups, with each group trying to solve the problem that is given to them. Sometimes it is just a spike that will be performed on a different project, but sometimes we will work on the main application together.

If the feature is straightforward, each group gets one of the VIPER parts. Then we start branching from a feature branch in which the Contract will be updated.

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

As time goes on, we continue to communicate with one another, helping with the most difficult parts and explaining architectural decisions, which makes the team more aware of the entire development process. Thanks to a different environment without interruptions, we can have these discussions without disturbing other colleagues.

By the end of the day, we have a rough idea of how our feature is going to behave. Through this process, we are essentially creating a bridge, wherein each team is constructing from a different place and hoping that in the end, all the pieces fit together.

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

What we want to achieve on this day is to identify the possible problems we might have and try to solve or propose solutions while we are together and focused. As a bonus, we may have some of the components done by the end of the day, like a Presenter or Interactor.

After the Offsite

After having an offsite, it’s easier to create user stories and estimate and define what needs to be done. To date, the iOS team at SoundCloud has had four offsites. Each one had different outputs and sizes, but all of them helped us share knowledge and brainstorm problems that could have been difficult to solve later.

Having a clean architecture has given us the possibility of splitting the work, which makes it easier to have six people working on the same feature. It also helps improve awareness of the areas that needed to be covered, thereby reducing unexpected issues.

As a bonus, we discovered that having everybody in a different working environment with one goal in mind helped us discover problems earlier, improved our shared knowledge and ownership of a feature, and bonded the team.

We are looking forward to building more features in this format and seeing what we’ll learn from it. We’ve found that every time we do it, our process evolves, we learn new things, and we’re able to refine our workflow. We hope that over time we can decrease assumptions, have more consistent estimations, reduce project risk, and be able to ship features with more confidence.


          Du blog au livre, d’Histoire en histoires : la vulgarisation, un gai savoir      Cache   Translate Page      

« Le devoir de qui aime les hommes est peut-être de faire rire de la vérité », écrivait Umberto Eco dans Le nom de la rose. Cette citation résume bien la démarche de Priscille Lamure, dont les Drôles d’histoires, cabinet de curiosités historiques et déjantées est le premier ouvrage (Éditions du Trésor). 

 



 

Ancienne danseuse ayant repris ses études en médiation culturelle à 24 ans, elle tient depuis trois ans le blog Savoirs d’Histoire, dont 15 articles pittoresques ont été choisis pour une édition papier. Bloggeuse, et désormais autrice, Priscille Lamure nous parle du numérique et de l’objet livre : deux formats de transmission des connaissances, deux espaces d’écriture qui ouvrent la voie vers tous les possibles. 

 

Un projet éditorial réalisé grâce à des sources numérisées 

 

Écrire des articles sur des anecdotes historiques via un blog permet une grande liberté, mais implique aussi une rigueur implacable : « J’écris sur les sujets que je veux, nous confie Priscille Lamure. Parfois des internautes ne comprennent pas mes choix, comme celui d’aborder le thème de la poupée érotique, mais j’assume tous mes articles. En revanche, je m’impose une méthodologie draconienne, car je traite de sujets en lien avec notre patrimoine, et, à la moindre erreur, Internet ne t’épargne pas : les commentaires vont immédiatement pointer le détail incomplet ou inexact. »

C’est pourquoi Priscille Lamure s’appuie autant que possible sur des sources authentiques qui ont été numérisées et peuvent être consultées sur Gallica, Bibliothèque numérique de la BnF. Un travail de recherche scrupuleux, selon les règles de l’art, qui a retenu l’attention de Retronews puisque, depuis 2017, Priscille Lamure contribue aux publications du site de presse de la BnF. 

 

Les sources citées dans son blog sont d’ailleurs le point de départ de ses rédactions. La blogueuse et autrice passe « des journées entières à tenter de dénicher la perle rare parmi les archives et les manuscrits ». Elle ajoute : « Je le fais avec passion, la quête est aussi exaltante que la découverte. » Chasseuse de trésors infatigable, Priscille Lamure partage avec enthousiasme son butin de petites merveilles. Enfin, pas si petites, si on en croit le calibre des pénis égyptiens dévoilé sans pudeur dans le papyrus pornographique de Turin ! Et en feuilletant l’ouvrage, on se rend très vite compte de son appétence pour les sources insolites... 

 

Priscille Lamure déclare « Avec mon éditeur, on a choisi ensemble les articles que je voulais réunir. Il n’y a pas de fil conducteur thématique. Je raconte des histoires qui dénotent de la grande Histoire enseignée, et j’embarque mes lecteurs, qui suivent seulement un ordre chr
