Track 5 is "Cleaning Windows/The Street Only Knew Your Name", an outtake from the live album "A Night in San Francisco". Recorded 17 December 1993 at the Masonic Auditorium, San Francisco. Like the other tracks it was released on a cd-single (Perfect Fit; 1995) and later included on the 2008 remaster of "A Night in San Francisco". Clearly an outtake, it's a hurried / messy performance.

          Jonathan Loáisiga se va al Spring Training este lunes 11 de febrero - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page      

Las incontables gotas de sudor derramadas en las largas horas de entrenamiento realizados en Nicaragua, al parecer borraron cualquier tipo de duda de la mente del lanzador pinolero Jonathan Loáisiga, quien parte en condiciones impecables este 11 de febrero rumbo al Spring Training, en busca de ganarse un puesto en el cuerpo de lanzadores de los Yanquis de Nueva York para la temporada venidera de las Grandes Ligas.

El prospectos pinolero sabe que cualquier oportunidad que se le pueda presentar, depende de lo que muestre en el Spring Training.

“Durante el tiempo que he estado entrenando en Nicaragua, me he enfocado en fortalecer las piernas, que también son importantes en un lanzador, porque eso te da mucha agilidad que es fundamental en el beisbol”, detalló Loáisiga, tras una jornada de entrenamiento realizada en el viejo Estadio Nacional de Beisbol, donde estuvo asesorado en su trabajo por Rafael Mendoza.

“La única recomendación que me hizo el equipo antes del Spring Training, fue que tratara de subir cinco libras de peso, algo que ya lo logré y que entrenara fuerte y que me mantuviera saludable”, agregó.

En la recta final de su preparación Loáisiga, realizó algunas sesiones de bullpen en las que fue aumentado la cantidad de lanzamientos, con el fin de calibrar la potencia de su brazo.

En plenitud de forma

La temporada pasada de Grandes Ligas, el lanzador pinolero se convirtió en el primer pelotero nacional en vestir la camiseta de una organización tan emblemática como la de los Yanquis de Nueva York, participando en nueve encuentros, en los que dejó constancias de su talento, aunque su caminó se vio afectado por las lesiones.

“Mi mentalidad es la de llegar al cien por ciento de condiciones al Spring Training, y hacer un buen trabajo para ver si me gano un puesto, ya sea como abridor o relevista”, afirmó Loáisiga.

“Tuve una pequeña lesión la temporada pasada, pero no fue nada grave, logre recuperarme sin mayores problemas y aunque me bajaron a Ligas Menores, logré terminar con el equipo grande”, agregó.

Las últimas contrataciones de los Yanquis en cuando a lanzadores, tampoco preocupan mucho al tirador derecho, quien ve en la competencia por un puesto, un incentivo para luchar con más fuerza.

“El saber que el equipo está llevando nuevos jugadores de calidad, me motiva a prepararme mejor y realizar un mejor trabajo en el Spring Training”, explicó Loáisiga.  

En su primer año en Grandes Ligas, Loáisiga acumuló balance de dos victorias sin derrotas, en nueve partidos en los que tuvo actividad, con cuatro salidas como abridor. La efectividad del pinolero fue de 5.11, en 24.2 entradas lanzadas, en las que sumó la alentadora cantidad de 33 ponchados.

Si estás en Barcelona y quieres pasarte por la Apple Store del centro de la ciudad, más vale que lo hagas hoy mismo porque es el último día en el que la tienda de Passeig de Gràcia va a estar abierta durante un tiempo. A partir de mañana domingo, Apple cierra temporalmente el local para reformarlo.

El aviso oficial ya se dio a mediados de de enero, dando un margen de más de tres semanas a todos los clientes. Mientras la tienda se esté reformando se suspenderá toda la actividad, incluyendo sesiones de la Genius Bar y eventos de Today at Apple.

Sin fecha fijada de reapertura

apple store

La compañía no ha concretado cuánto tiempo van a durar las reformas. Es obvio que Apple quiere adaptarla con el nuevo diseño y distribución de espacios que ya hemos visto en la Union Square de San Francisco o en Regent Street. Podéis ver un aperitivo de ese rediseño en la Apple Store de La Maquinista, en la misma ciudad.

Y precisamente esa tienda de La Maquinista se queda como principal alternativa para dar servicio a los clientes de Barcelona. Cogerá todo el volumen de clientela, repartiéndolo entre los distribuidores autorizados de la Ciudad Condal como Microgestió o K-Tuin.

Mucho me temo que las solicitudes de servicio técnico se van a acumular en esas tiendas, así que lo mejor que puedes hacer si necesitas asistencia técnica es acudir a la web de soporte técnico de Apple para pedir hora en cualquiera de esos locales o en la Genius Bar de la Maquinista lo antes posible en previsión de que la espera va a ser larga.

The Un-Gentrified

These are B&W portraits of people who live and work in San Francisco. Since 1990, this city has experienced rapid socio-economic changes led by skyrocketing home values and rents. This process continues unabated. One result of this change has been the gentrification of the neighborhoods evidenced by the influx of hip, tech-savvy professionals driving luxury cars and SUVs, the incessant remodeling and enlarging of old Victorian homes, and the condo-ization of apartments. Those who can afford the radioactive real estate prices are squeezing out working class people. But some hold on, protected by strict rent control laws or by the good fortune of already owning their homes.

          The Wells Fargo outage was caused by an 'automatic power shutdown' at its data center after smoke was detected. Here's what we know      Cache   Translate Page      

FILE- This Nov. 29, 2018, file photo shows a Wells Fargo bank location in Philadelphia. Wells Fargo customers are experiencing issues with accessing online or mobile banking as well as other banking services, after a fire happened at one of the bank’s data centers. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)

  • Smoke detected at a Wells Fargo facility on Thursday caused the shutdown of a data center that led to a large-scale outage, leaving customers without the use of their debit cards or access to online banking. 
  • A Wells Fargo spokesperson did not comment on whether the incident was connected to its data center in Minnesota, where a fire suppression system was accidentally tripped early Thursday morning. 
  • CNBC first reported the incident, but later said the fire department found no evidence of a fire. 
  • This is not the first time the San Francisco-based bank has experienced a shutdown this sprawling. 

Smoke detected at one of Wells Fargo's main data center facilities caused a large-scale outage Thursday that left customers without access to online banking or working debit cards. The outage continued into Friday, the company said, though some of its ATM services have been restored and branches are operational.

Customers complained that direct deposit paychecks were not reflected in their account and representatives were overwhelmed with requests that caused 2-hour wait times. 

This is not the first time the San Francisco-based bank has seen a shutdown so sprawling — in fact, this is the second time customers experienced loss of access to banking services just this week. 

A Wells Fargo spokesperson declined to specify how many people have been impacted and which facility smoke was detected in, instead offered the following statement:

"The system issues were caused by an automatic power shutdown at one of Wells Fargo’s main data-center facilities, triggered by a smoke condition created by routine maintenance activities in the building. In response to the power shutdown, applications were systematically re-routed to back-up data centers throughout the day yesterday. By end-of-day, most critical systems had been recovered, and Wells Fargo continues to restore services across all business and operational areas. Wells Fargo continues to see high call volume and online and mobile traffic. Team members are aggressively working to resolve customer issues. Any Wells Fargo fees incurred as a result of these issues will be reversed."

CNBC reported Thursday that the fire department was deployed to a data center operated by Wells Fargo in Minnesota where a fire suppression system (typically ceiling water sprinklers) was accidentally tripped. Though, later, no evidence of a fire was found. Whether or not this is the incident that caused the outage is not known nor addressed in any of the press releases or statements Wells Fargo has made in the last 24 hours. 

In a tweet, Wells Fargo assured customers that the outage was not the result of "any cybersecurity event."

The bank then apologized to customers for any inconvenience caused by the system issues, and said it would reverse any Wells Fargo fees incurred. When customers will see accurate banking statements is also unknown. 

Wells Fargo will extend its branches' operating hours at all 5,500 locations one hour Friday and Saturday, according to a press release, to "address any concerns."

Some customers who have been unable to access their Wells Fargo accounts have threatened to find a new bank and took to social media to express frustration. Online banking features like credit card and mortgage balances are still unavailable, the company said in a statement Friday morning. 

Wells Fargo is the third-largest bank in America. 

 

The second outage in 7 days

Earlier this week, on Feb. 1, Wells Fargo took to Twitter to apologize to customers experiencing problems with its online banking and mobile app. The bank said it would research the issue, though did not explain what caused it

The latest outage has customers wondering: How can something as small as smoke in one isolated location cause a shutdown of banking services of a corporation that does business globally? 

CBS reports that last December, Wells Fargo blamed a computer glitch for an error affecting an estimated 545 customers who lost their homes. It then filed papers with the Securities and Exchange Commission, revealing it incorrectly denied 870 loan modification requests where over 60% of homeowners went into foreclosure.

But this sort of small incident is not an issue that has only impacted Wells Fargo. A similar outage at Bank of America happened in 2017, where customers were reportedly in the same situation thousands of Wells Fargo customers experienced Thursday — unable to access their accounts through the bank’s website or apps.

Is there an equivalent site like this for the San Francisco housing market? I have been reading (and on rare instances posting) on this forum for 3 years, and have always enjoyed Tim's insights as well as the comments. They helped me make great decisions buying in 2016. Thanks all for the constant healthy debate and dialogue! I am considering moving to San Francisco for personal reasons, and am debating renting vs buying there. Wish there was a sanfranciscobubble.com, as their market is quite a bit different than Seattle's. It's more diversified with more companies, many going through IPO in 2019 which will result in a lot of newly minted millionaires. Their economy isn't as linked to one big company as Seattle's is. I still believe this slowdown in housing is partly due to broader macroeconomic factors, but largely due to Amazon as well. They were practically doubling their headcount for 4 years straight, and then had a hiring freeze and are virtually flat in headcount compared to a year ago. This has kept Amazon buyers on the sidelines in H2 2018, and affordability kept everyone else on the sidelines. San Francisco has an affordability crisis, and the same macroeconomic conditions with rising rates and global markets slowing down, but doesn't have a one-company dependency so I wonder if its prices will ever really fall or not.

          Apple, Google slammed for hosting Saudi woman-tracking app      Cache   Translate Page      

San Francisco: Apple and Google are facing criticism from human rights activists for hosting an app that allows men in Saudi Arabia to track and control women's movements.

According to a report in Insider on Friday, the app called "Absher" lets men to give women permission to travel, and also get SMS when a woman uses her passport at the border.

For making the apps available on Google Play and Apple's App Store, the US-based tech giants have been accused of facilitating misogyny and helping "enforce gender apartheid".

Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and a women's rights activist urged Apple and Google should reconsider hosting the app, Insider reported, adding that the two tech giants did not respond to its requests for comment.

Under Saudi law, it is essential for women to have a legal "guardian" who can restrict her travel.

While Absher - a government service - offers other functions like paying parking fines, its travel features have been targeted by activists as it makes it difficult for women to leave Saudi Arabia.

"Apple and Google have rules against apps that facilitate threats and harassment," Human Rights Watch was quoted as saying.

"Apps like this one can facilitate human rights abuses, including discrimination against women."

Amnesty International called on Apple and Google to demand changes to the app so that it can be stopped for being used to harm women.

Yasmine Mohammed, a critic of Saudi Arabia, told Insider that the companies are "facilitating the most archaic misogyny" and help the Saudi government to enforce "gender apartheid".


          'Chrome 73' to support commands from keyboard multimedia keys      Cache   Translate Page      

San Francisco: The next version of Google's search browser "Chrome 73" would come with support for multimedia keys on desktop and laptop keyboards, the media reported.

The feature would initially support "play", "pause", "previous track", "next track", "seek backward", and "seek forward" keyboard commands as part of "Google Chrome 73", that is scheduled to release next month, Engadget reported on Friday.

The support for multimedia is being added at the browser level rather than the tab level, hence the multimedia buttons would work even when Chrome is operating in the background or is minimised.

"If you're watching a YouTube video and you pull up another app while the video is playing, hitting the pause button will still stop it," the report explained.

The feature would first be made available for Chrome OS, macOS and Windows and reach Linux users later this year.

The new addition would also ship with a "Media Session API" that would enable developers to customise how their sites and apps interact with multimedia keys.

Chrome would be the first browser to offer such support, the report added.

          Is Lindsay Lohan's Mom Being Catfished?      Cache   Translate Page      


Dina Lohan, mother of Lindsay Lohan and contestant on this season of Celebrity Big Brother, has revealed that she's five years into a relationship with someone she's never met. People reports that other contestants were quick to point out that her romance had all the telltale signs of a major catfishing situation, but Lohan was not having any of it.

"It's personal," she told artists Kandi Burruss and Tamar Braxton, as well as former pro-wrestler Natalie Eva Marie. "He's real. I swear, it's crazy. But I'm going to marry him. It's really, really true. I talk to his ma!" Ready to make matters even fishier? They've never even used FaceTime, so Lohan has no real confirmation of what the love of her life looks like. Her explanation for this not being a red flag? "Some guys don't just use iPhones!" Dina!!! There are other modes of video-calling.

Her longtime mystery lover lives in San Francisco and is allegedly taking care of his mother, which is why he's so stuck in one location and unable to make the trek to see Lohan. Braxton offered to travel with Lohan to finally meet him, but something tells me they'd be faced with a man that looks nothing like what Lohan is imagining.

If this doesn't get cleared up in the forthcoming episodes of Celebrity Big Brother, I'm ready to head to set to shake some sense into Lohan. Dina, even if this guy is real, find a man who will take you on a first date within a week, not a decade!

But, also, someone call Catfish.

Black History Month is a time to celebrate and honor members of the African community who’ve left a significant mark or have paved a new road for future members.

          New Medication for High Cholesterol Not Cost-Effective       Cache   Translate Page      
[Read the Article] The FDA recently approved a new class of cholesterol-lowering drugs called PCSK9 inhibitors. These new medications could substantially reduce heart attacks, strokes and cardiovascular deaths, however they are very expensive. A new study evaluated the cost-effectiveness of this therapy and how increased use might affect the U.S. healthcare system. Researchers from the University of California San Francisco used a simulation model that included all U.S. adults 35 and older and evaluated outcomes such as expected numbers of deaths due to cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes, and balanced this with the cost and potential benefits of these drugs. With an estimated 9 million people eligible for this therapy and a price of $14,000 per patient per year, researchers estimated that total prescription drugs expenditures could increase by 40 percent. In order to be cost-effective, the PCSK9 inhibitor costs would have to come down to about $4,000 a year. [Watch more videos of The JAMA Report]

          BWW Album Review: UNBREAKABLE (Original Cast Recording) is Stirring and Evocative      Cache   Translate Page      
Cover art courtesy of Ghostlight Records.

Broadway composer Andrew Lippa has written a poignant song cycle with UNBREAKABLE, which was premiered by The San Francisco's Gay Men's Chorus at Nourse Theater in San Francisco, CA on June 22-23, 2018. Recognizing that mainstream history has largely turned a blind eye to LGBTQ history, Lippa decided to create a project that preserves and tells the stories of the community. Then, this week Ghostlight Records released UNBREAKABLE (Original Cast Recording), allowing listeners a chance to go inside the Nourse Theater to experience the powerfully moving cycle live and for themselves.

Equally heartbreaking and uplifting, Lippa shines a light on the struggles faced and successes earned by the community. The cycle begins in 1900 with co-founder of the ACLU, the first American woman awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and lesbian Jane Addams addressing the LGBTQ community directly. She reminds them that they are unbreakable. Then, it tells lesser known stories, such as the etymology of the word gay and Lem Billings - JFK's best friend - having to repress his homosexuality and grow comfortable being the man in the next room. It also highlights better known issues like President Eisenhower's executive order that initiated the "Lavender Scare" in Washington, D.C., the New York Times article that documented the beginnings of the AIDS crisis, and the story of gay and transgender activist Sylvia Rivera.

The songs themselves showcase Lippa's brilliance in composing contemporary Broadway pop compositions. Each of the songs soar with vibrant brass, swelling strings, and lush vocal melodies that are instantly memorable. Yet, what makes this album truly remarkable is the vocal authority of The San Francisco's Gay Men's Chorus, which adds invaluable oomph and pizazz to the up-tempo and inspirational moments and resplendent, heartrending emotionality to the somber and introspective moments. Each track sings to the heart and soul, making these overlooked pieces of history resonant, timely, and - probably most importantly - easily digestible.

Standout moments on the album include its rousing opener, "Unbreakable," with the role of Jane Addams gorgeously sung by Britney Coleman. Opening the concert and album with a song that reminds each listener of how powerful one human can be and how that is magnified when joined by a like-minded community isn't just intelligent, it's an unmistakably motivating call to action. Singing the haunting story of Cyril B. Wilcox on "Already Dead," Marcus J. Paige devastates the heart as he plumbs the emotional depths of a man who chooses suicide over the continued humiliation that accompanies him being outed to his prominent father in a letter from Harvard's Secret Court. Adding her voice to a splendid characterization of pioneering feminist Gertrude Stein, Lisa Vroman sings "Just a Woman" with a hearty dose of humor, a palpably boundless love, and heartwarming tonality. Lippa, a king of writing and preforming character songs, brings forth humor in "Purple Menace / The Happy Homosexual," singing with gusto and delicious irony as psychiatrist Dr. Charles Socarides. Perfectly encapsulating the album's ability to easily bring listeners to tears in one moment and to rebuild them with majestic pride in another, The San Francisco's Gay Men's Chorus makes both "41" and "Good Things Take Time" sublime and stunning in their presentations.

With ten more choruses across the country presenting UNBREAKABLE in the 2019-2020 season, this important piece has exciting life and will hopefully gain momentum. In the meantime, Ghostlight Records' stirring and evocative UNBREAKABLE (Original Cast Recording) insures that it can reach audiences that can't attend live performances, will be experienced around the globe, and will keep it preserved for the people who will need these stories for generations to come.

UNBREAKABLE (Original Cast Recording) can be purchased from Ghostlight Records' webstore, iTunes, Amazon, and elsewhere music is sold.

I don't see anything in this article pointing out that federal courts have ALREADY ruled that this kind of denail of grants is unconstitutional. So:

"A federal district court judge has ruled Attorney General Jeff Sessions conditions on grant funding to force so-called sanctuary cities to cooperate with immigration enforcement efforts as unconstitutional

Judge William Orrick, of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, sided with the state of California and city of San Francisco in their lawsuit challenging the requirements in granting their request for summary judgment Friday....

Orrick's decision was in agreement with every court that has looked at these issues.

The judge said that the challenged conditions violate the separation of power and that the information-sharing law is unconstitutional."

          Bullet Points: Hunkered Down Edition      Cache   Translate Page      
It’s been more than a couple of months since I’ve taken on the task of  compiling crime-fiction news bits that don’t necessarily merit posts of their own ... which means I have a lot of information to impart. Fortunately, Seattle is heavily socked in with snow today, so I have little interest in spending much time outside in the cold. Better to snug in with a cup of coffee and my computer keyboard. Let us begin ...

• Lisbeth Salander fans, take note: BookRiot reports that “An unseen investigation by Stieg Larsson, the late journalist and author of the Millennium Trilogy, has come to light and will be revealed in a new true-crime book. Larsson was a leading expert on antidemocratic, right-wing, extremist organizations.” The site goes on to synopsize the plot of the new book, which is due out from AmazonCrossing in October:
On February 28, 1986, Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme was shot dead in Stockholm. The crime is still unsolved today. It’s now known that Larsson began his own investigation into the assassination—continuing the search until his own death. In 2014, journalist and documentary filmmaker, Jan Stocklassa gained access to the 20 boxes of Larsson’s research into the case.
To quote from an associated press release:
In The Man Who Played with Fire: Stieg Larsson’s Lost Files and the Hunt for an Assassin, Stocklassa reveals new facts about the case and reveals the hitherto unknown research of the best-selling author in a fascinating true crime story. For the first time in many years, the police in Sweden have taken active measures to investigate a new suspect in the murder case and are pursuing leads based on the research revealed in Stocklassa’s book.
• What matters most is making money, right? The New Yorker reported recently that Dan Mallory, the book editor turned author who—as “A.J. Finn”—penned last year’s best-selling The Woman in the Window, has made a variety of false assertions regarding his health, his education, and his career achievements. Mallory has since sought to excuse his actions, but his deceptions have left many folks in the publishing industry wary of the author. In The Washington Post, critic Ron Charles wrote: “If James Frey taught us anything with his infamous memoir, it’s that autobiographical claims can collapse into a million little pieces of exaggeration and deception. Mallory’s situation is different, though, if more bizarre. How do we reconsider a work of fiction—or any work of art—when confronted with troubling information about its creator?” Despite all of this controversy, Mallory’s publisher, HarperCollins, says it is holding firm on plans to bring out his sophomore novel in January 2020—a San Francisco-set yarn The New Yorker describes as “a story of revenge … involving a female thriller writer and an interviewer who learns of a dark past.”

Julie Adams, an Iowa-born actress who co-starred opposite an amphibious “Gill man” in the 1954 movie The Creature from the Black Lagoon before going on to a long and prolific TV career, passed away in Los Angeles on February 3 at age 92. Among her many television roles were appearances on Hawaiian Eye, Perry Mason, Darren McGavin’s The Outsider, Ironside, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, Ellery Queen, Mannix, Cagney & Lacey, Murder, She Wrote, and Diagnosis: Murder. An interesting tidbit: Adams’ fleeting first marriage was to Leonard B. Stern, a screenwriter and producer responsible for such memorable series as Get Smart, McMillan & Wife, and The Snoop Sisters.

Via Shotsmag Confidential comes news that Karin Slaughter’s 2018 novel, Pieces of Her, will be turned into an eight-episode Netflix series starring Lesli Linka Glatter. “The story,” explains the blog (quoting from a press release), “follows as an adrift young woman’s conception of her mother is forever changed after a Saturday afternoon trip to the mall together suddenly explodes into violence. As figures from her mother’s past start to resurface, she is forced to go on the run and on that journey, begins to piece together the truth of her mother’s previous identity and uncovers secrets of her childhood.”

• With Series 6 of Endeavour scheduled to debut in Great Britain tomorrow, February 10, ITV Magazine—a consumer periodical just launched last month by the show’s principal broadcasting network—has published a rather satisfying article about what viewers can expect from Endeavour’s latest four episodes. Chris Sullivan has posted scans of that piece in his blog, Morse, Lewis and Endeavour. Meanwhile, he has embedded a new morning TV show interview with a bushy-bearded Roger Allam, who plays Detective Chief Inspector Fred Thursday on the program opposite Shaun Evans, starring as Detective Sergeant Endeavour Morse.

From B.V. Lawson’s In Reference to Murder:
USA Network has picked up to series its drama pilot Dare Me, based on Megan Abbott’s 2012 novel of the same name. Set in the world of competitive high school cheerleading, it follows the fraught relationship between two best friends (Herizen Guardiola and Mario Kelly) after a new coach (Willa Fitzgerald) arrives to bring their team to prominence. While the girls’ friendship is put to the test, their young lives are changed forever when a shocking crime rocks their quiet suburban world.
• Lawson also reportsthat “ABC has ordered the drama pilot Stumptown, inspired by the graphic novels published by Oni Press. It follows Dex Parios, a strong, assertive, and unapologetically sharp-witted Army veteran working as a P.I. in Portland, Oregon. With a complicated personal history and only herself to rely on, she solves other people’s messes with a blind eye toward her own.”

• As an unflagging fan of Lou Grant, the 1977-1982 CBS-TV series starring Ed Asner as the sometimes crusty city editor of a fictional Southern California daily newspaper called the Los Angeles Tribune, I was pleased to discover at least the vast majority of that show’s episodes are available for free on YouTube. The picture quality is sometimes less than ideal, but until I drop the dough for Shout! Factory’s DVD releases of all five seasons, it’s probably the best I can expect. If you want to learn more about this drama series—which was a spin-off from The Mary Tyler Moore Show—check out The Canonical Lou Grant Episode Guide. And I’ve added the main title sequences from the first three seasons of Lou Grant to The Rap Sheet’s YouTube page.

• Speaking of vintage shows, The Spy Command alerts me to the fact that La-La Land Records will soon release “Jerry Goldsmith[‘s] music to a mostly forgotten 1975 TV show, Archer.” Wikipedia explains that this is “a limited-edition soundtrack containing the one episode … Goldsmith scored (paired with a re-issue of the score to the film Warning Shot, from newly discovered better elements).” If you, too, have difficulties remembering Archer, let me point out that it was a short-lived NBC mid-season replacement series starred Brian Keith (Family Affair) as L.A. private investigator Lew Archer, the character so masterfully developed over three decades by Ross Macdonald. Keith’ show wasn’t awful, without ever being really good; I much preferred Peter Graves’ portrayal of the same protagonist in an unsuccessful 1974 TV pilot based on one of Macdonald’s later yarns, The Underground Man. And though, as one TV critic observed, Keith was mustered up “weary cynicism” enough to play Archer, he did not seem to respect the source material. In fact, Keith even had visions of moving the series’ setting from the City of Angels to Honolulu! Regardless, I’d like to get my hands on the six episodes of Archer that were originally broadcast, if only for nostalgic reasons. I might even be willing to purchase La-La Land’s presumably high-quality cut of Goldsmith’s Archer theme, if only because the version I have—and which is featured in The Spy Command’s post—is terrible.


(Above) J. Kingston Pierce and Chelsea Cain enjoy a bit of fun at Bouchercon 2011, high above St. Louis’ Gateway Arch.

• I have many fond memories of attending Bouchercon 2011, which took place in St. Louis, Missouri. But one of the few captured on film was my meeting with Portland, Oregon, author Chelsea Cain, who turned out to be personable, downright funny, and nowhere near as dark-spirited a woman as her fiction might suggest. So I was pleased to read that her 2014 novel, One Kick, has been adapted as a 12-part TV series titled Gone, scheduled for broadcast on WGN America, beginning on 9 p.m. ET/PT on Wednesday, February 27. Deadline Hollywood sums up the plot this way: “Gone follows the story of Kit ‘Kick’ Lannigan ([played by] Leven Rambin), survivor of a highly publicized child-abduction case, and 20-year veteran Frank Novak ([Chris]Noth), the FBI agent who rescued her. Years later, he recruits her to join a special task force dedicated to solving abductions and missing-persons cases. Paired with former Army intelligence officer John Bishop (Danny Pino), Lannigan uses her intuitive wit and martial arts skills to solve cases and bring victims home.”

• Yet another Agatha Christie yarn appears due for big-screen treatment, with a possible 2020 release date. The Killing Times reports that UK screenwriter Sarah Phelps (The A.B.C. Murders, Murder by Innocence, And Then There Were None) “has signed up to adapt Christie’s [1961] stand-alone novel, The Pale Horse.”

• Also to be filmed: Stephen King’s Mile 81.

• Ann Cleeves closed out her nine-volume Shetland Islands/Jimmy Perez series with last year’s Wild Fire. Fear not, though, for EuroCrime says she’s “turning her hand to a new series set in Devon.” The first of those new books, introducing Detective Matthew Venn, will be The Long Call, due out from Minotaur in September.

• Two other far-off releases to watch for: Kate Atkinson’s Big Sky (Little, Brown), her fifth novel starring Cambridge private eye Jackson Brodie, is scheduled for publication on both sides of the Atlanticin June; and Anne Perry will inaugurate a brand-new, pre-World War II series, starring “intrepid photographer” Elena Standish, with the September release Death in Focus (Ballantine).

• Before we leave Ann Cleeves too far behind, a reminder should be issued that Series 5 of Shetland, starring Douglas Henshall as Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez, will debut in the UK on BBC One next Tuesday, February 12. There’s no word yet n when those six new episodes will become available to Netflix users in the States.

• Among the digital audio series CrimeReads contributing editor Emily Stein showcases on her list of the “8 True-Crime Podcasts to Listen to in 2019” is The Murder Book, which premiered on January 28, and which Stein says “is the first podcast produced by bestselling crime novelist Michael Connelly.” She continues:
In Season 1, “The Tell Tale Bullet,” Connelly returns to his roots as a crime beat reporter to investigate a real, 30-year-old cold case of a fatal carjacking in Hollywood, and of a murderer who walked free. Connelly promises that every season of Murder Book will end with a crime solved; to get there, he employs a wide array of sources, including court recordings, wiretaps, and interviews with witnesses and detectives.

Complete with hardboiled narration and a jazzy soundtrack,
Murder Book is the perfect podcast both for fans of true crime, and fans of classic noir. It also takes a serious look at the limitations and flaws of our criminal justice system, which leaves the listener with the unavoidable impression that in the past three decades, far too little has changed.
Listen to Connelly’s episodes on the Murder Book Web site or via Apple Podcasts. Full transcripts of each installment are also available on the Web site. New episodes drop every Monday for 10 or 12 weeks.

• One podcast that isn’t mentioned in Stein’s wrap-up is We Never Solved Anything. No, I’d never heard of it either, until its hosts e-mailed me an invitation to listen. As they explain, “It is a funny podcast where we explore a new unsolved mystery theme each week such as serial killers, spontaneous human combustion, and medical mystery stories.” Find the 11 existing episode here.

• Literary Hub’s Emily Temple chooses10 Contemporary ‘Dickensian’ Novels,” including Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch (2013), Sarah Waters’ Fingersmith (2002), and Peter Carey’s The True History of the Kelly Gang (2001).

• “A great teacher is a gift. A great line editor is a miracle,” declares Nick Ripatrazone, a staff writer for The Millions.

• The Winter 2018/2019 edition of Mystery Readers Journal—built around the theme “Mystery in the American South—“is available now as a PDF and will shortly be available in hardcopy …,” writes editor Janet Rudolph. “We had so many articles, author essays, and reviews, that we had to split this themed issue into two.” A list of contents for this new issue, plus info on buying a copy, can be found here.

• I periodically like to revisit episodes from the classic NBC Mystery Movie series Columbo. Knowing whodunit, and sometimes remembering exactly how the rumpled Los Angeles police lieutenant pins the blame, doesn’t spoil the re-watching one iota. Not long ago I came across this piece The Columbophile, revealing which four among the almost 70 episodes of that show were star Peter Falk’s favorites. “It might come as a surprise to fans,” writes the blog’s anonymous editor, “that pivotal episodes ‘Etude in Black’ and ‘Murder by the Book’ don’t feature here—particularly ‘Etude,’ which starred Falk’s BFF John Cassavetes. Instead, all of Falk’s personal favourites come from Seasons 3 or 5, when the show was more firmly established. Notably, three of the four are from Season 5 alone. What does this tell us? Well for one thing it suggests that Falk was at his happiest in the crumpled raincoat once he had a couple of full seasons under his belt.”

• As we prepare for the June release of James Ellroy’s This Storm (Knopf)—book two in his “Second L.A. Quartet” (following 2014’s Perfidia)—Steve Powell, a British student of that author’s work, feels compelled to ask, “is James Ellroy losing his touch?” Writing in his blog, The Venetian Vase, Powell continues: “I’ve decided to broach the subject as the critical response to Ellroy’s last novel Perfidia was mixed, as were the reviews for his novel before that Blood’s a Rover. … I’ve sensed a certain weariness about Ellroy’s recent efforts when I talk with fans of the author. … So Ellroy cannot expect his new novel, This Storm, to be met with universal acclaim as critical opinion has started to shift. In fact, the opposite may be the case. Ellroy may have to win back some critics who are getting cynical about the author’s once unassailable reputation.”

• What a terrific couple of short-story titles, from classic crime-fiction magazines found here and here. On top of that, both of these publications feature cover art by the great Norman Saunders.

• Mystery Tribune chooses the “45 Best Cozy Mystery Novels.”

• New York bookshop proprietor and anthologist Otto Penzler continues to count down what he contends are the “Greatest Crime Films of All-Time.” Most recently he has considered The Ipcress File (1965), The Kennel Murder Case (1933), and The Glass Key (1942). Keep track of this developing series here.

• While we’re on the subject of Penzler, it should be mentioned that he will be partnering with Pegasus Books to launch Scarlet, an imprint “specializing in psychological suspense aimed at female readers.” Publishers Weekly explains: “The new venture has [tapped] Luisa Smith, longtime buying director at Book Passage, a Corte Madera, Ca., bookstore, to be Scarlet editor-in-chief. Nat Sobel, founder of the Nat Sobel Associates literary agency, will act as a consultant to the imprint. Scarlet will launch in winter 2020 with six to eight titles. The Scarlet list will be distributed by W.W. Norton, which also distributes the titles of its parent companies, Penzler Publishing and Pegasus Books.” Although there’s been some grumbling about the name Scarlet being applied to a literary line intended to promote women’s fiction and female authors (shades of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter!), and Penzler’s heated objections to the Mystery Writers of America’s decision to deny Linda Fairstein a Grand Master Award due to her involvement in a 1990 New York City rape-case prosecution left some authors questioning his compassion toward women, I look forward to seeing what Scarlet can contribute to the already rich field of psychological suspense novels.

• A similarly promising venture comes from Polis Books, which has announced the creation of Agora, an imprint designed to “focus on diverse voices, putting out between six and ten books per year.” Chantelle Aimée Osman will serve as the editor of this line, which plans to begin releasing books in the fall of 2019. Read more here.

• I’m not a big social-media user, but over the years I have established a Rap Sheet presence on Facebook, on Twitter, and on Google+. Now it appears that last page is set to vanish forever. I was recently given this warning:
In December 2018, we announced our decision to shut down Google+ for consumers in April 2019 due to low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers’ expectations. We want to thank you for being part of Google+ and provide next steps, including how to download your photos and other content.

On April 2nd, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts. Photos and videos from Google+ in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be deleted. You can download and save your content, just make sure to do so before April. Note that photos and videos backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted.

The process of deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts, Google+ Pages, and Album Archive will take a few months, and content may remain through this time. For example, users may still see parts of their Google+ account via activity log and some consumer Google+ content may remain visible to G Suite users until consumer Google+ is deleted.
I don’t remember when I signed up for Google+, but I know I only did so because fellow blogger Bill Crider already had. Thankfully, my contributions to The Rap Sheet’s page there have been minimal. I’ll keep updating it for as long as possible, but if you notice that the Google+ link available from the right-hand column of this blog disappears in the next couple of months, you’ll know why.

• In its latest look back at Edgar Award winners of the past, Criminal Element revisits one of my favorite private-eye novels of the past: 1958’s The Eighth Circle, by Stanley Ellin. Sadly, critic Joe Brosnan is too rigid in applying our modern social and sexual sensibilities to a work that was penned more than six decades ago.

• TV fandom is no crazier today than it’s always been. According to this 1959 newspaper report, overenthusiastic followers of the 1958-1964 ABC private-eye series 77 Sunset Strip flocked to the Los Angeles site that stood in for the agency’s offices.

• Finally, here are a few author interviews worth checking out: Jane Harper talks with The New York Times about her new Australia-set crime novel, The Lost Man; Christobel Kent chats with CrimeReads about What We Did; Speaking of Mysteries host Nancie Clare goes one-on-one with H.B. Lyle (The Red Ribbon), Val McDermid (Broken Ground), and James Rollins (Crucible); Ronald H. Balson answers questions from Crimespree Magazine’s Elise Cooper about The Girl from Berlin; and Laura K. Benedict discusses The Stranger Inside with Criminal Element’s John Valeri.

          Saving Grandmother’s Brain: Therapeutic Options for Maintaining Midlife Mood, Mind, and Memory       Cache   Translate Page      
Host: Matt Birnholz, MD
Studies in the field of anthropology have shown that having a healthy grandmother plays a critically positive role in family cohesion. But the wholistic, personalized health needs of women in their elder years are not always recognized. This care disparity is all the more prominent in general OB/GYN practice, but thanks to the work of a select few, the trends may be about to change. Dr. Matt Birnholz speaks with Dr. Sarah Berga, Professor and Chair of OB/GYN at Wake Forest School of Medicine at ACOG’s annual meeting in San Francisco. They discuss maintaining grandmothers' health across both physiological and psychological spectra, and how this attention in care fundamentally changes larger family units for the better.

          JOURNEY's NEAL SCHON Undergoes Emergency Gallbladder Removal Surgery      Cache   Translate Page      
JOURNEY guitarist Neal Schon underwent an emergency gallbladder removal surgery on Saturday, February 9. The rocker, who is scheduled to kick off his "Journey Through Time" tour later this month, wrote on Twitter earlier today: "Had to go into ER last night very inflamed-infected Gallbladder taken out and honestly couldn't feel better ? Just need a few days. I've apparently had this for the last 3 1/2 years and didn't know it! I thought it was parasites. I'm feeling better then ever. CU soon Friends! "I'd like to thank Dr Minnis for doing such an amazing job and All Marin General Hospital for Being incredibly Kind Ros- Keith & My beautiful Wife Michaele for alway continually being by my side and showing me what love really is" The "Journey Through Time" tour will see Schon taking the stage alongside founding JOURNEY and SANTANA singer/keyboardist Gregg Rolie, ex-JOURNEY drummer Deen Castronovo, bassist Marco Mendoza of THE DEAD DAISIES and THIN LIZZY, a musician named Chris Collins (on guitar and keyboards) and super-producer Marti Frederiksen (multi-instrumentalist, vocals). Following a warm-up gig at the Jackson Rancheria Casino in Jackson, California on February 22 and the tour's official opening night at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California on February 23, the musicians will perform at The Van Buren in Phoenix, Arizona on March 1 and at The Orpheum in Los Angeles, California on March 2. "Neal Schon's Journey Through Time" will perform all the greatest JOURNEY hits we've all come to love. They will also perform choice selections from their earliest recordings. Schon and Rolie debuted "Journey Through Time" in February 2018 at The Independent in San Francisco to a sold-out crowd, performing songs spanning JOURNEY's entire catalog — including the first three albums, "Journey", "Look Into The Future" and "Next". JOURNEY and DEF LEPPARD's 2018 North American co-headline tour grossed $97.1 million from 1,003,198 tickets sold, according to figures reported to Billboard Boxscore. The trek included 56 dates across the United States, plus two shows in Canada. Image courtesy of Iron Mike Savoia

          Hombre ebrio acuchilla a excónyuge que le reclamaba la manutención de su hijo      Cache   Translate Page      

Un nuevo caso de feminicidio estuvo a punto de concretarse anoche en Tacna. Un hombre atacó con un filudo cuchillo a su excónyuge, porque la mujer le exigía asumir la manutención del hijo de tres años de ambos.

Bernardo Carita Pacco (32), sin oficio conocido y requisitoriado por delito de omisión a la asistencia familiar, pretendió matar a Zully Q.R. (19), en la vivienda de la asociación Las Viñas II Etapa, manzana C, lote 2, en el distrito Gregorio Albarracín.

Sobre la tentativa de feminicidio se conoció a las 19:30 h del viernes, cuando la joven madre fue evacuada desde el Centro de Salud San Francisco hacía el servicio de Emergencia del hospital Unanue, con diagnóstico “herida punzo cortante en el tórax lado izquierdo, heridas punzo cortantes en la pierna izquierda por arma blanca”.

Luego se supo que esa noche Bernardo Carita buscó a su excónyuge, en la casa donde la mujer vivía alquilada, y tras atacar ferozmente se dio a la fuga.

Posteriormente la víctima pudo llamar por celular a su padre Reynaldo Quispe Ramos (67) que labora como taxista, indicando que Carita le había acuchillado en varias partes del cuerpo. Luego el sexagenario halló a su hija sobre el piso y en medio de un charco de sangre y la evacuó a la posta San Francisco; después la mujer fue transferida al nosocomio.

Efectivos de la comisaría Gregorio Albarracín se abocaron en la búsqueda del agresor, y tripulantes del patrullero PL-21011 hallaron a Carita hoy, cuando salía de la casa de sus padres, en la asociación Tupac Amaru, Mz. B, Lt. 27, distrito Alto de la Alianza.

          Trendy startup Hims wants to shake up men's health by prescribing generic Viagra online and is nearing a $1 billion valuation. But a move to relax guidelines has raised concerns among some of its doctor partners.      Cache   Translate Page      

Hims doctor worries

  • The trendy men's health startup Hims sells generic Viagra and other prescription medications online. Splashy ad campaigns have propelled the San Francisco-based company to prominence, and towards a $1 billion valuation.
  • But a Hims-led effort to expand the number of online patients whom doctors could treat with generic Viagra has sparked concerns among some doctors who work with Hims. 
  • Those doctors worried that Hims may be pushing them to write more prescriptions. Some clinicians said late last year in an internal poll that they felt patient care was deteriorating. Hims executive Melissa Baird says that there is no pressure to prescribe. 
  • Hims' Baird told Business Insider that the original erectile-dysfunction guidelines had been overly conservative.
  • "The level of patient care and safety on hims’ platform is best in class in accordance to all medical and clinical standards," Hims said in a statement.
  • Business Insider is the first to report on the change in prescribing protocols and the physician concerns.

Imagine if you could get a prescription drug for a medical condition online without traveling to see a doctor, or even speaking with one.

That’s the promise behind the trendy men’s health startup Hims, which says its online platform is making medical care more available for men with stigmatized health issues such as impotence and hair loss.

You’ve probably seen the splashy ads featuring stylized eggplants and cacti (a winking nod to Hims’ work in erectile dysfunction), and even the rapper Snoop Dogg. With these high-profile campaigns, the San Francisco telemedicine startup has vaulted to prominence, and is reportedly nearing a $1 billion valuation.

But Hims’ approach triggered concerns among some doctors working with the company after the startup led an effort to expand the number of patients that physicians could treat with generic Viagra online, according to secret messages among clinicians and a person familiar with the matter.

The clinicians are employed by Hims' independent medical partner, an organization called Bailey Health. But the move prompted worries among some doctors that Hims might be pressuring them to write more prescriptions in a more lenient manner. Erectile dysfunction can also be a sign of more concerning health conditions, which might not be diagnosed or treated in an online visit, according to an outside expert. 

This story is based on secret messages among clinicians and internal documents reviewed by Business Insider, as well as conversations with current and former Bailey Health doctors. Business Insider also spoke with Melissa Baird, Hims’ chief product and operations officer, and Dr. Peter Stahl, a Hims medical consultant. Requests for comment from Bailey Health were not returned by two individuals there.

Hims said in a statement that "this narrative is patently false" and said that the level of patient care and safety on its platform was "best in class." Hims also emphasized the distinct and separate status of Bailey Health. 

"Any claims that are made to the contrary are categorically false, and intentionally aim to undermine the credibility of safe, effective protocols set forth in telemedicine and the medical community at large," the statement said. "hims has always made clear to physicians that each physician must prescribe according to his or her own, independent clinical judgement and that the safety of patients is paramount. There are no penalties or negative repercussions of any kind for any physician based upon their prescribing rates."

The concerns raised at Hims provide a unique window into the issues that may crop up as more medical-care services move online and companies toe the line between e-commerce and medicine, serving patients who are also customers. 

Many see these types of telemedicine companies as the future of healthcare, and investors have poured hundreds of millions of dollars into startups selling prescription products online, including birth-control pills, migraine medications, and contacts.

Startups raising private funds are typically under pressure from their venture investors to show significant growth. And the Silicon Valley mantra of "move fast and break things" presents issues in the healthcare industry, where people's health and well-being are on the line.

A disruptive model

Erectile dysfunction is a common problem, and brand-name Viagra is notoriously expensive. At about $50 a pill, it regularly brought in more than $1 billion in annual revenue, and one year it generated as much as $2.1 billion for Pfizer.

Hims burst onto the scene in late 2017 and quickly began selling the generic, cheaper form of Viagra when it became available. Led by founder and CEO Andrew Dudum, the startup also offers hair-loss products and creams, and gummy vitamins that don’t require a prescription. The business has also expanded, with a push into women’s health and a UK launch.

Dudum pitches Hims’ online-only approach as a convenient, inexpensive, and destigmatizing route to medical care. People don’t like going to the doctor, he has said, let alone for an uncomfortable or taboo condition.

Instead, customers detail their medical history and symptoms in a detailed online form, which is then reviewed by a doctor. If the physician gives the OK for a prescription, Hims mails the patient the pills in a nondescript package. The clinician can also refer a patient to see an in-person physician.  

Under Hims’ original protocols, doctors likely would not have prescribed to patients with certain risky health conditions, including diabetes and blood pressure outside a certain range. The new protocols allow doctors to prescribe to such patients but, because they are guidelines, do not require it.

Hims said its original erectile-dysfunction protocols were overly conservative and excluded men who could be helped safely online.

Baird told Business Insider that the move to relax standards, made in July 2018, had not substantively changed the percentage of patients treated, and she denied that it had prompted significant concerns among doctors.  

“I wouldn’t say it was out of the realm of normalcy for any fairly fundamental change within a company you do every day,” Baird said. She compared it to a design change on a popular website.

“Facebook changes its UI. Everybody gets really upset for a couple of days,” she said.

But objections to the more lenient guidelines persisted until at least late last year. Bailey Health doctors use the messaging tool Slack to communicate, and one clinician posted a poll asking about the new guidelines.

Multiple Bailey Health employees said the change “has made patient care deteriorate considerably” and asked to go back to the previous policy, according to the poll, which was obtained by Business Insider. Business Insider confirmed that two physicians who participated in the poll work for Hims’ medical partner.

Business Insider began reporting this story in December, and has contacted 19 individuals for it. Some refused to speak with us. Business Insider is not identifying those who did in order to allow them to speak freely without fear of professional repercussions.

Participants in a separate group chat, which was private and not hosted on a company system, voiced serious worries about the protocol change and other company practices for months after the new policy went into effect. They also said Hims was pressuring doctors to write more prescriptions, including by monitoring individual doctors’ prescribing, according to the group messages and a source familiar with the matter.

Baird said the company does not have the ability to track how many patients are being turned down for generic Viagra or other drugs by individual doctors. Bailey Health currently employs 140 US doctors, according to a Hims public-relations contact, and Baird said Hims tracks the rejection rate only on an aggregate basis across the company. The rates at which clinicians refer patients to in-person doctors, which Hims' Baird said was the same as the rejection rate, are "encrypted at the individual level," Hims said in a statement.  

Hims told reporters last year that it rejects about 30% to 40% of patients seeking generic Viagra. But Baird told Business Insider in January that the company’s rejection rate was never that high, instead citing a range of 10% to 20%. 

Hims said in a later statement that rejection rates have fluctuated each week between 15% and 45% of customers, the result of the evolving treatment protocols, the increasing volume of users, and changing patient demographics. And Baird said in a later conversation that the effect on the rate after the guidelines were loosened last summer is "not even something we can evaluate." 

Two other online healthcare companies said their rejection rates for erectile dysfunction are higher. Lemonaid Health said it often tells about 45% of patients to get care elsewhere. Roman said more than half of people who begin an online visit for erectile dysfunction are rejected but wouldn’t give a precise figure.

Hims said its rejection rates shouldn't be compared to other companies.

Questions about new online models

Hims’ subscription-based model has proven attractive to venture-capital investors such as Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, Joshua Kushner’s Thrive Capital, and 8VC. Hims clocked in at a $500 million valuation last fall, according to PitchBook, and a funding round in the works could bring that figure to more than $1 billion, a Recode report said. 

These new online models can help patients by making it easier for them to get care, but there are concerns about divorcing erectile-dysfunction consultations from the wider medical system, said Dr. Hossein Sadeghi-Nejad, a urologist and the president of the Sexual Medicine Society of North America, which promotes high standards in treating human sexual dysfunction.

Sadeghi-Nejad said he’s not familiar with Hims specifically.

Because erectile dysfunction can be the first sign of other health conditions, treating it might include lifestyle changes, such as limiting or quitting alcohol, seeking counseling, using an erectile-dysfunction medication, using a medical device, or undergoing surgery.

For instance, Sadeghi-Nejad said medications that lower blood pressure, called beta blockers, can also cause erectile dysfunction. A cardiologist doing a full, in-person evaluation might adjust a patient’s blood-pressure medication, rather than prescribe Viagra, he said.

“But if it’s done as part of this whole prescribing system, what are the odds the doctor will say, ‘Mr. Sadeghi, go see a cardiologist and then call me?’” he asked.

Hims pull quote 2

Viagra is taken before sexual activity to increase the blood flow that makes erections possible. Viagra, like all prescription drugs, has risks, but they are mostly considered limited. And Viagra isn’t thought to have long-term side effects.

Concerns raised in a secret group chat

Hims had been selling generic Viagra, known as sildenafil, for just over half a year when a change was made. In mid-2018, Hims led an effort to change the guidelines for doctors working with the company to make it easier for them to prescribe the drug to more people.

Hims confirmed that its guidelines changed to make generic Viagra available to more people but said on Friday that it would only share the guidelines if this reporter signed a confidentiality agreement. The company said it could not provide specific information about the guidelines because it could "compromise the integrity of the telemedicine visit."

The original protocols for doctors who treat patients through Hims’ platform recommended that the doctors avoid treating individuals with certain health conditions, including diabetes or blood pressure outside a certain range, according to Stahl. Both diabetes and heart problems can be linked to erectile dysfunction, and erectile dysfunction can be a sign of more harmful medical problems for individuals with those conditions.

That was no longer the case under the new protocols. Afterward, clinicians took to a secret, private group chat to voice their significant concern. Roughly 10 employees were included on the chat, with up to five actively participating, two participants confirmed to Business Insider.

The doctors work for Bailey Health, the independent medical partner of Hims. But to the secret-group-chat participants, the distinction didn’t make much of a difference. This separate structure is common among health companies because many states outlaw businesses practicing medicine.

The participants were especially concerned about whether Hims was pressuring doctors to write more prescriptions in a more lenient way.

One doctor who works at Bailey Health and was included in the secret group messages acknowledged some pressure to write more prescriptions but said it comes as more of a suggestion. The company doesn’t encourage unsafe practices or fire those who don’t comply, the doctor said. Clinicians emphasized in interviews that they practiced according to their independent medical judgment.

And Bailey physicians are paid by the hour, not by the prescription, according to Hims and others.

"Doctors have no pressure to prescribe," Hims' Baird said. 

An internal poll about the guidelines

If Bailey doctors were initially bothered by the protocol change, it was just the short-term confusion that can come with any organizational change, Baird told Business Insider.

Business Insider began reporting on Hims in December. In late December, a clinician set up a poll about this subject on Bailey Health's internal Slack messaging system. The survey asked whether the new guidelines for erectile dysfunction patients were clear, and appeared to be open to all Bailey Health clinicians.

None of the employees who participated said yes. Five said "no, they’re not" clear and 10 said "it has made patient care deteriorate considerably in the past several months."

Meanwhile, 16 responded in support of the company going back to the prior policy. Clinicians could choose more than one answer, and there was some overlap between the groups. The above reflects the results as of the time Business Insider viewed them.

Baird also said the company would not interfere with prescribing decisions, including the duration of prescriptions given to patients. Hims has made longer-duration prescriptions of generic Viagra, including six-month and 12-month supplies, available for patients. Asked whether Hims ever urges doctors to prescribe these longer-duration supplies more, Baird said the company did not.

“Sometimes the urology advisers will chime in, and say you know, it’s a little extra to be making them come back every three months,” she said, calling longer-duration prescriptions more standard in in-person doctor’s offices. “But Hims itself never says anything about the duration of prescription.”

In an email sent to Bailey Health staff late last year, Baird reminded them that “our advisors” had said that six-month and 12-month prescriptions were allowed.

“I am not, in any way, critiquing or suggesting the longer duration prescriptions, but about 6 months ago we were around 25% 6 month prescriptions and now we are almost 0,” she wrote. “That makes me think that perhaps some newer docs either aren’t aware of the advisory board’s suggestion or people have just fallen into habit -- as can happen when you are seeing a bazillion patients :).”

How the change was made

The process by which Hims changed the erectile-dysfunction protocols was another subject of controversy in the private doctor group chat viewed by Business Insider.

The initial guidelines had been formed when the company was much smaller, and they were perceived as being too stringent by Hims’ vice president of medical affairs, Dr. Adrian Rawlinson, and by Hims’ medical advisory board, Baird said. Rawlinson didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment on his role in changing the guidelines.

Among the factors playing into the move was “the fact that we were just in a better place overall to be able to handle more patients,” Baird said.

The protocols were changed by a group of physicians, including the medical board and Bailey doctors, in July 2018, she said.

Hims had just closed a $50 million fundraising round that summer and was already trying to raise more money. It took until late January to raise the most recent round, which amounted to $100 million, according to a Recode report

Stahl, the director of male reproductive and sexual medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, said he was a hired consultant who provided recommendations to Hims, including on the erectile-dysfunction guidelines. He said he hadn’t been involved in actually making the changes, which he said had been made by Bailey Health’s advisory board.

Among his advice had been changes to approaches that appeared “medically incorrect,” he said. Stahl also said it’s not any riskier to prescribe Viagra to people with diabetes than to those who don’t have it.

“I think that telemedicine is new, and I think the instinct to be conservative makes sense in certain scenarios,” Stahl said. But that “can also serve as a barrier to appropriate and effective medical care, and can be an access barrier.”

Stahl acknowledged that there was some pushback from Bailey Health clinicians after the guideline changes were announced, including about cardiovascular safety and patients with diabetes. Ultimately, physicians will use their medical judgment when deciding what to prescribe, he said.

Part of the reason for this controversy is that there aren’t yet expert guidelines on how to treat erectile dysfunction online. The latest guidelines from the American Urological Association recommend a physical exam, which can’t be done through a platform like Hims.

“There is not currently a consensus statement with regard to how to treat erectile dysfunction on a telemedicine platform,” Stahl said. “Those meetings I’m sure will happen very shortly but they haven’t happened yet. So you know, everyone is doing their own thing.”

          Pelosi shows pragmatic streak in pursuit of border deal      Cache   Translate Page      
WASHINGTON – Republicans have vilified Nancy Pelosi for years as a San Francisco liberal and now they’re trying to portray her as a captive of resurgent left-wingers in her Democratic Party.

But in her early moves so far as House speaker, Pelosi is displaying her pragmatic streak. She’s set to endorse a split-the-differences deal on government funding that appears on track to give President Donald Trump at least some barriers on the border, after she had said Trump’s border wall idea was “immoral” and promised he wouldn’t get a penny for it.

And as the Democratic Party’s progressive wing pursues dreams such as “Medicare for all” and a “Green New Deal,” Pelosi is keeping her distance.

“We are results-oriented, values-based, and for the boldest common denominator,” Pelosi said in a brief interview Friday. “Everybody has a path to make their case, to see what the options are. I’m wedded to the Affordable Care Act because I think it’s a path to health care for all Americans.”

Pelosi presides over a 235-member Democratic caucus that surged into power in last November’s midterm election, fueled by voters’ anger against Trump. The new majority includes young, high-profile and defiantly liberal lawmakers such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who’s a darling among Democratic activists and a social media phenomenon.

“There’s a new crop of Democrats that make Pelosi look moderate. I never thought I’d see that day,” said Rep. Greg Walden, R-Ore. “You see this Green New Deal rollout, you see this Medicare for all rollout and you don’t see her buying into those proposals.”

While some on the left are demanding Trump’s impeachment, Pelosi is urging Democrats to take it slow, saying there needs to be a full vetting of any evidence. She’s against demanding Trump’s tax returns immediately, to the dismay of impatient lawmakers such as Rep. Bill Pascrell, D-N.J.

There’s no denying Pelosi’s skills. She was a strong speaker when running the House in 2007-10, keeping Democrats unified and sometimes running roughshod over Republicans. But some in her caucus started to doubt her after punishing election cycles in 2010, 2014 and 2016.

Pelosi overpowered her doubters, however, in a leadership challenge last fall, emerging stronger than when she started. At age 78, she emerged from her shutdown victory over Trump as a hero in the party and is carrying greater leverage into the ongoing negotiations. So far, there’s little grousing among Democrats.

Pelosi’s more measured approach is playing out this weekend as talks grind on over border security money. Pelosi took a hard line during the recent 35-day partial federal shutdown, refusing to enter into negotiations while the government was shuttered, while dismissing Trump’s dream of a border wall.

“We’re not doing a wall. Does anybody have any doubt about that? We are not doing a wall. So that’s that,” Pelosi said last month. She called the idea “an immorality.”

Those remarks led many Republicans to believe that Pelosi would become an obstacle in the talks, refusing to agree to enough concessions to win over Republicans controlling the Senate, much less Trump.

Instead, Pelosi is intent on pursuing a deal with Republicans on a $350 billion-plus appropriations bill that has been hung up for weeks over Trump’s border wall demands. She still opposes the idea of a wall but has signaled she’s open to vehicle barriers and other steps. She says she’s delegating most of the decision-making to allies on the House Appropriations Committee.

“I trust the appropriators,” Pelosi said, and she frequently reminds people that she was “forged” on that pragmatic committee. Predictions that she’d be hemmed in by her prior stance, or that she’d be unwilling to buck progressives, aren’t coming to fruition.

“Nobody hems in the speaker, OK?” said Rep. Mike Doyle, D-Pa. “The speaker is quite secure in her position and is someone who doesn’t have to worry about what anyone chatters about.”

Part of that is the difference between making a political point and making a law. Must-pass legislation to fund the government, for example, which requires Trump’s approval, gets treated differently than do upcoming messaging measures on climate change, taxes and health care.

Pelosi also relies heavily on her committee chairmen, several of whom have decades of experience in the House dating to the Democratic majority of the early 1990s.

Issues where Democrats want an accomplishment this year, such as lowering prescription drug prices, probably require Democrats and Pelosi to cut deals that won’t please lots of liberals. Pelosi knows the ropes of divided government, often citing her work with the Bush administration in 2007 to pass legislation boosting automobile mileage standards and production of renewable energy.

But Pelosi hints that issue areas where Democrats are developing proposals to run on in the 2020 elections are more wide open.

“Everything’s on the table. Medicare for all is on the table,” Pelosi said. “Everybody knows they have a path. There’s no blocking of anything. Everybody has the path to make their case.”

While high-profile liberals such as Ocasio-Cortez, who won a safe seat in New York City, capture the attention of the party’s left wing, Pelosi is more focused on protecting the first-term members who really matter to holding the Democrats’ majority: lawmakers who took over GOP seats in areas won by Trump.

Republicans say Pelosi is still a stereotypical San Francisco liberal. It’s just that she looks relatively measured when compared with left-wing insurgents.

“She’s trying to hold them back from going over the cliff,” said the House’s top Republican, California Rep. Kevin McCarthy. “The party has moved beyond where she has philosophically been. So she is trying to rein that back.”


          En prisión seguirá acusado de matar a su novia      Cache   Translate Page      

acusado. Luis Rivera estará preso por feminicidio.

Ocotepeque, HondurasPor el delito de feminicidio, un juez decretó el auto de formal procesamiento con prisión preventiva a Luis Fernando Rivera, acusado de haber asesinado a su novia Josselin Aracely Mata Reyes (de 23 años).

Luis Fernando Rivera fue capturado en México cuando solicitaba asilo, luego de haber llegado con personas que iban en la caravana que salió de San Pedro Sula el 13 de octubre de 2018.

El asesinato de Josselin Aracely ocurrió el 20 de noviembre de 2018 en el barrio El Calvario de San Francisco del Valle en Ocotepeque.

Según los hechos presentados en el requerimiento fiscal, Luis Fernando, horas antes de que encontraran el cuerpo de la joven, salió de la casa en la que vivían y dijo a unos vecinos que la muchacha había quedado descansando porque estaba enferma.

Incluso, el sujeto pasó pagando una cuenta por la casa del papá de Joselin Aracely y les contó que se había sentido mal.

Con sus maletas, Luis Fernando se fue como lo hacía cada semana, pues trabajaba en San Pedro Sula y sin levantar sospechas huyó del lugar.

El cuerpo de Josselin Aracely fue encontrado horas más tarde en una cama dentro de su casa.

El 3 de enero de 2019 el juzgado emitió una orden de captura con alerta migratoria y con eso lograron la captura del sospechoso en México.

Luego de la audiencia, el juez lo envió a prisión.

From 70's Swedish adult film director Jan Anders, comes a deep, penetrating piece of artful vintage erotica! A probing examination of woman-to-woman pleasures, Sappho '68 was a groundbreaking adult film that balanced artful, tasteful filmmaking with the seductive innocence of the soft core nudie-cutie genre. Showcasing the ample charms of 70's erotic/exploitation cinema legend Uschi Digard!

Jennifer Bradley (played by Barbara Corey AKA Janis Kelly AKA Petra Andrews, an ex-roommate of Sharon Tate who also met an early tragic demise!) is a small town girl who moves to the big city to find success as a photographer where she is swept away by San Francisco's thriving sexual revolution.

Unsatisfied with her male relationships, she chooses to frolic with one of her sexy female models, Belinda. Together they discover and experience the unbridled passions, pleasures, and tragic pitfalls of unrestrained sexual freedom!

          Bezos, el hombre más rico del mundo, muestra que no se le puede torear      Cache   Translate Page      

La Prensa

San Francisco, Estados Unidos.

Construyó una de las compañías más valiosas del mundo desde cero y se convirtió en la persona mas rica del planeta.

Ahora, Jeff Bezos trata de demostrar que no se dejará amedrentar en una batalla de voluntades con un empresario políticamente conectado, propietario de un tabloide de supermercado.

Bezos, de 55 años, fundó Amazon en el garaje de su casa en 1994 y fue impulsando la compañía hasta convertirla en un coloso que domina las ventas en línea, tiene operaciones en música y televisión por streaming, comida, informática en la nube, robótica, inteligencia artificial y mucho más.

Sus negocios incluyen además el diario The Washington Post y la compañía privada espacial Blue Origin.

Lea más: Jeff Bezos acusa al National Enquirer de chantajearle con fotos íntimasA pesar de llevar años en el punto de mira por el crecimiento de Amazon y por su fortuna estimada en 133,000 millones de dólares, se convirtió en el gran centro de atención el pasado enero cuando anunció que, tras 25 años de matrimonio, se divorciaba de su mujer.

Cuando la revista National Enquirer, controlada por el aliado del presidente Donald Trump David Pecker, amenazó con publicar fotos íntimas y sensacionalistas del multimillonario con su amante, éste contraatacó haciendo públicos los detalles de sus relaciones.

"Si en mi posición no puedo parar este tipo de extorsión, ¿cuánta gente puede?", escribió Bezos en el servicio de blogs Medium.

Esa bomba provocó una oleada de reacciones, muchas de ellas a favor de su decisión de hacer frente a Pecker y al Enquirer.

Lea más: El comercio del dolor: las "farmacias" callejeras en la frontera entre Colombia y Venezuela"No todo el mundo puede detener a los intimidadores, los mafiosos y los extorsionadores, pero si puedes, tienes que hacerlo", señaló su competidor tecnológico Pierre Omidyar, fundador de eBay.

Hasta hace poco, Bezos era percibido como un empresario estudioso y decidido que dirigía su negocio con una determinación implacable y que evitaba exponerse a los focos, si bien era evidente que chocaba con Trump tras una serie de ataques por parte del presidente.

- Rumbo a la prosperidad -La inclinación de Bezos por los experimentos se remonta a su edad más temprana, con la anécdota ampliamente conocida de que trató de desarmar su cuna cuando apenas era un bebé.

Su madre era una adolescente cuando lo dio a luz en Albuquerque, Nuevo México, el 12 de enero de 1964.

Lea más: Trump anuncia que su segunda cumbre con Kim Jong-un será en Hanoi"Tú nos formaste, nos protegiste, nos dejaste caer, nos levantaste y nos amaste, siempre y de forma incondicional", tuiteó Bezos el pasado Día de la Madre, en mayo, dándole las gracias "por todo".

Ella volvió a casarse cuando Jeff tenía cuatro años, y el niño fue entonces adoptado legalmente por su padrastro cubano, un inmigrante que trabajó como ingeniero en una gran compañía petroquímica.

"Mi padre llegó de Cuba por su cuenta sin hablar inglés cuando tenía 16 años, y ha estado trabajando duro desde entonces", contó el empresario en otro tuit el Día del Padre, en junio pasado.

La familia de su madre era de Texas, donde Bezos pasó muchos veranos trabajando en un rancho de uno de los abuelos, que había sido director regional de la Comisión de Estados Unidos para la Energía Atómica.

Bezos estaba fascinado por la ciencia informática cuando la industria tecnológica apenas despuntaba y estudió ingeniería en la prestigiosa Universidad de Princeton.

Según dice la leyenda, el proyecto comenzó en el garaje de un suburbio de Seattle gracias al respaldo económico de sus padres, y Bezos pasó de ser un chico con amor por lo que hacía a convertirse en el hombre que convirtió a Amazon.

com en un gigante de internet.

- 'Los Juegos del Hambre' -Durante muchos años Amazon estuvo perdiendo dinero mientras Bezos insistía en invertir los beneficios para conseguir ganancias futuras, un plan que demoró en dar frutos.

Lea más: Hombre arrestado durante juicio de "El Chapo" es un ciudadano españolEl año pasado el anuncio de que la compañía iba a buscar una segunda sede, después de la de Seattle, lanzó una competición que fue calificada por algunos de "Juegos del Hambre", y actualmente se debate entre dos lugares: la ciudad de Nueva York o en las afueras de Washington.

Al anunciar los últimos resultados de Amazon, un récord de 3,000 millones de dólares de beneficios trimestrales, el fundador puso el énfasis en la inteligencia artificial y en el asistente digital Alexa.

Bezos se había negado a sumarse a otros billonarios que destinan parte de sus ganancias a proyectos caritativos, pero el año pasado anunció un fondo filantrópico con un compromiso inicial de 2,000 millones de dólares para ayudar a las familias sin hogar y construir escuelas en comunidades de bajos ingresos.

30.00 USD

These robes are custom cut and sewn to your order with loving care by me in San Francisco, CA., and are only made with fabulous premium designer 100% cotton. They are not coming from a factory or being manufactured and shipped to you from overseas!

I created these robes for several reasons. I wanted a robe that wasn't the slinky, lacy robe your husband or boyfriend bought you, or a heavy terry robe that looks like your mother's (even though you may already be one) so I created this simple, beautiful 100% cotton robe for a couple of reasons. One, to slip on when you are blow drying your hair (so your wrapped towel doesn't keep falling down) and two, to wear something cute and functional while moving around your house. I am sure you can come up with your own reasons as well. I wear mine all the time. You will be amazed after you buy one how much time you will spend in your robe.

I also put a lot of thought into the construction of these robes as well. I think you will really appreciate the 3/4 length sleeve so while washing your hands or dishes your sleeves don't get wet. I envisioned women moving freely around the kitchen or bathroom without worrying about a long traditional kimono sleeve that could get in your way.

Sizing:

Small 0-6
Medium 8-10
Large 12-16
XL 18-22

Knee Length:

Small 34"
Medium 36"
Large 38"

The measurement is from the back of the neckline to the hemline.

All seams are machine stitched and overlocked/serged for durability. The Modern Kimono label acts as a loop for hanging as well.

For Washing Instructions we recommend:

Machine Wash cold, gentle cycle
Tumble dry low, remove promptly

Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day,

          Estas son las sagas más míticas en 2D que fallaron estrepitosamente con el paso a las 3D      Cache   Translate Page      

Estas son las sagas más míticas en 2D que fallaron estrepitosamente con el paso a las 3D#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Hay clásicos que se deberían dejar como están. Y no lo decimos por aquella comparativa sobre el renderizado de 2D a 3D del renovado Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, sino por sagas de videojuegos de renombre que surgieron con perspectiva en 2D y acabaron flirteando con las 3D con pésimo resultado.

Uno podría pensar al instante, por ejemplo, en ese infame Superman 64 de Titus Software, pero debido a que Superman nunca ha destacado dentro del mundo de los videojuegos (ni siquiera el The Death and Return of Superman de Blizzard), no nos sirve para lo que queremos tratar. Sólo nos centraremos en sagas míticas en 2D que experimentaron con las tres dimensiones de la peor forma.

Golden Axe: Beast Rider

120218 Metalslug 01

Comenzamos por uno de los experimentos fallidos más recientes y que a la postre ha supuesto la muerte de la saga Golden Axe. Nunca vimos con buenos ojos el desarrollo de Golden Axe: Beast Rider por parte del poco prolífico estudio Secret Level (antiguamente conocido como SEGA Studios San Francisco), y como era de esperar el resultado no fue nada satisfactorio.

Su sistema de combate estaba basado en distintos patrones de colores y conservaba, además, poco del espíritu del clásico de SEGA de los noventa a pesar de repetir Tyris Flare como protagonista, y con Ax Battler y Gilius Thunderhead haciendo sus cameos como NPC. La crítica lo suspendió duramente, y con razón.

Pero lo peor de todo es que seguimos desde aquel 2008 sin un Golden Axe nuevo. En 2011 vimos cómo surgió un proyecto gratuito bajo la herramienta OpenBOR (Golden Axe Myth), pero SEGA le acabó echando el freno poco después (como ya había hecho con Street of Rage Remake). Nos tuvimos que conformar con SEGA Vintage Collection: Golden Axe en 2012. ¿Para cuándo su regreso?

Final Fight: Streetwise

120218 Metalslug 02

Final Fight es otro de los beat'em up por excelencia surgidos a finales de los ochenta, y con alta presencia en los noventa. Tras el inevitable experimento como juego de lucha en 3D (Final Fight Revenge) a finales del siglo pasado en recreativas (su conversión a Saturn nunca salió fuera de Japón), quiso transportar su esencia de beat'em up a las 3D con Final Fight: Streetwise en 2006.

A Capcom Studio 8 no le salió bien la jugada. Primero, porque el género estaba pasando por una crisis de identidad preocupante tras haber vivido sus años de gloria en los noventa con las 2D. Segundo, porque con este paso a las 3D se acentuaban sus fallos, como errores flagrantes con la cámara, entre otras taras a nivel jugable. Y tercero, porque era feo como pocos a nivel gráfico.

Ya a finales de los noventa, los ingleses Core Design (creadores de Lara Croft) habían intentado algo parecido con el que en un principio iba a llamarse Streets of Rage 4, hasta que SEGA se desligó del proyecto y se llamó finalmente Fighting Force. Pero el resultado no fue muy satisfactorio, y fue peor si cabe su secuela.

Commandos: Strike Force

090219 2dto3d 02

Que la saga Commandos es de las más queridas a nivel nacional no se le escapa a nadie. El orgullo patrio por esas tres entregas de estrategia que se sacó de la chistera Pyro Studios y que forman parte de la cultura del videojuego en España. Ahora bien, corramos un tupido velo con el shooter Commandos: Strike Force.

De la perspectiva isométrica de los clásicos de estrategia, con esos escenarios en 2D, pasamos a las 3D y ante un juego de acción en primera persona que perdió buena parte de la esencia que había hecho grande a la saga de mercenarios.

Ni siquiera la prensa española fue benevolente con este FPS lanzado en 2006 para PC, PS2 y Xbox, tildándolo como un shooter más. Por ello tampoco nos extraña que sea el único capítulo que no se pueda conseguir en servicios retro como GOG.

Prince of Persia 3D

090219 2dto3d 01

Jordan Mechner marcó un antes y un después con la creación de Prince of Persia en 1989, porque sin este clásico de Brøderbund no habríamos tenido, por ejemplo, el Another World de Éric Chahi en 1991, probablemente, o ya los Oddworld.

Como es lógico, tuvo una secuela (Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame, 1993) que mejoró todos y cada uno de sus apartados, aunque no gozase del mismo calado mediático (el impacto del primero no se olvida). Lo curioso es que hubo que esperar bastante hasta la siguiente entrega. Fue en 1999 y bajo la moda de las tres dimensiones. Y sí, aquel Prince of Persia 3D de PC fue un verdadero desastre del que tampoco se salvaría de la quema su adaptación a Dreamcast (algo más pulida) bajo el nombre de Prince of Persia: Arabian Nights.

Por suerte este fiasco no tardó mucho en corregirse, ya que la saga volvería a la senda del éxito en 2003 mediante Prince of Persia: Las Arenas del Tiempo, asentándose definitivamente en las 3D con la manipulación del tiempo.

Contra: Legacy of War

120218 Metalslug 03

No hace mucho la saga Contra cumplió 30 años de historia y, como es lógico, en todo ese tiempo ha tenido algún altibajo, siendo una de sus peores entregas ese Contra: Legacy of War de 1996, el que fue su primer intento enteramente en 3D.

Con la moda reinante por la nueva dimensión, más acrecentada por la popularidad que iba en aumento en PlayStation y Saturn, Appaloosa Interactive tuvo la difícil papeleta de llevar con dignidad la popular saga de Konami. Y le llovieron los palos por todos los lados, porque si ya era legendaria la dificultad de Contra, añadirle esa tridimensionalidad sin cuidar su jugabilidad era casi un suicidio. Y era feísimo.

Incomprensiblemente, Konami volvió a confiar en este estudio húngaro con el mediocre C: The Contra Adventure de 1998 para PlayStation, que jamás saldría fuera de Estados Unidos. Por fortuna la saga fue recuperando poco a poco su calidad de antaño, siendo destacables tanto el Contra 4 de 2007 para Nintendo DS, como el Hard Corps: Uprising de 2011 para PS3 y Xbox 360, precuela, a su vez, del mítico Probotector de Mega Drive. ¿Lo malo? Que Konami no parece muy interesada en darle continuidad. No en vano, llevamos ocho años sin uno nuevo.

Worms 3D

090219 2dto3d 03

El fallo habitual para todo aquel juego surgido en 2D que da el salto a las 3D es la cámara y es justo el mayor problema que tuvo Worms 3D (2003). Si bien no fue mal juego, en absoluto, sí que bajó la media respecto a Worms World Party (2001), pese a que muchos lo consideraron una expansión del genial Worms Armageddon (1999). Porque estaba claro que a Team 17 le gustaba estirar su chicle.

La solución fue fácil: ese salto a las 3D. Lo que no esperábamos fue el posterior aluvión de varias entregas de esa guisa, donde Worms Forts: Under Siege (2004) sí que recibió palos considerables. Por suerte el escarceo con las 3D acabaría con Worms 4: Mayhem (2005), que tampoco saboreó las mieles del éxito.

Siendo realistas, por mucho que nos hayan gustado entregas más recientes con su regreso a las 2D, como Worms 2: Armageddon (2009), resulta evidente que la etapa de gloria de esta saga han sido los noventa. De ahí que Team 17 se haya tomado un descanso de tanto gusano desde 2016, centrándose con mayor ahínco en editar títulos indie en la actualidad, como los Overcooked o Yooka-Laylee.

Metal Slug 3D

120218 Metalslug 04

Llegamos hasta el más desconocido de todos, ese Metal Slug de 2006 para PS2. ¿Por qué? Porque nunca vio la luz fuera de Japón. Ya para empezar, SNK Playmore tuvo la mala decisión de conservar el nombre del original de 1996 (de ahí que se refieran al de PS2 como Metal Slug 3D, para diferenciarlos). Pero peor fue su apatía a nivel visual, sin rastro alguno del encanto de los clásicos de los noventa.

Tampoco cumplió a nivel jugable, resultando ser una experiencia mucho más aburrida que simplemente sirvió para intentar renovar una saga que estaba empezando a mostrar signos de agotamiento, reflejados en los tímidamente notables Metal Slug 4 (2002) y Metal Slug 5 (2003), muy lejos de la originalidad de sus primeras entregas. Algo nada sencillo con tanta iteración en pocos años.

Porque fue la propia SNK la que, en cierto modo, dilapidó Metal Slug. En sus poco más de 20 años de historia se han publicado, entre entregas numeradas, remakes o spin-offs (y sin contar recopilaciones), 16 juegos de la saga. Lo de las 3D fue un paso lógico, pero por suerte ya nos parece solamente un mal recuerdo.

No todos los saltos a las 3D fueron desastrosos

120218 Metalslug 05

Hay más ejemplos dentro de pasos a las 3D fallidos, como Earthworm Jim 3D o Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness, pero en el primer caso no estamos ante una saga tan mítica (por mucho cariño que le tengamos), mientras que en el segundo hemos visto cómo Konami se pudo resarcir con los Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (obviando cierto tramo del segundo, ejem). Sucede lo mismo con Sonic, donde alguna de sus aventuras en 3D para Dreamcast fueron más que satisfactorias.

El caso opuesto lo tenemos en esas sagas en 2D que pasaron con nota a las 3D, siendo el ejemplo más claro Grand Theft Auto. Aunque desde aquí queremos romper una lanza a favor del excelente Rygar: The Legendary Adventure de 2002 para PS2 (conversionado con poca fortuna en 2008 para Wii, por desgracia), al ser el precursor de los hack & slash tipo God of War, y porque dejó muy alto el legado del mítico Rygar de la propia Tecmo del año 1986. Un reboot memorable.

Y vosotros, ¿qué otros casos (buenos y malos) destacaríais?

          San Francisco Explores Taking Over PG&E’s Local Electricity Assets      Cache   Translate Page      

Almost as soon as Pacific Gas & Electric announced that it was saddled with liability from several deadly wildfires and would be filing for bankruptcy, San Francisco Mayor London Breed directed the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission to look at taking local control of power distribution.

On January 29, PG&E, California’s largest utility, officially filed for bankruptcy. The next day, in Breed’s State of the City address, she was bullish about public power in San Francisco.

"San Francisco knows how to run a clean power system, and we are going to get to 100 percent renewable energy by 2030," she said. "And if this bankruptcy provides an opportunity for public power, we will take it. I will be working with City Attorney Dennis Herrera to make sure that whatever happens with PG&E, that we are prepared." 

In recent weeks, local leaders have started to explore how the SFPUC could purchase — or wrest — control of power distribution from PG&E using a revenue bond or a windfall cash reserve. PG&E has said it might sell off assets during its bankruptcy.

“We're looking at how can we protect our ratepayers in San Francisco,” said Harlan Kelly, general manager of the SFPUC, during a Board of Supervisors meeting on January 14. “One way is to actually purchase the distribution system in San Francisco so that we can maintain it and not have the burden of paying for all the distribution of electricity in the country where the fires occur.”

Many questions remain around exactly how San Francisco plans to separate from PG&E. The SFPUC will examine the issue for the next three months. If and when a plan emerges, it is likely to meet resistance. The union that represents about 17,000 PG&E employees, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 1245, came out in opposition to selling off the utility.

Calls for a local Green New Deal

Still, frustrated with delays in clean energy and energy efficiency projects, city officials are calling for aggressively building renewable generation projects in San Francisco, which they say could create jobs for low-income residents. They're billing the initiative as a local version of a Green New Deal.

“In providing energy clean energy to the residents of San Francisco, we need to really think about a local version of a Green New Deal,” said Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer, during last month's board meeting. “And that is really about building our own resources for renewable energy on our own land or publicly owned land outside of San Francisco.”

On January 29, Supervisor Hillary Ronen called for a separation from PG&E and introduced legislation to create a $15.6 million fund that could only be used as part of a city-owned utility. “This state is waking up to the way that PG&E has been operating as a company and is no longer going to allow this corporation to run roughshod over our communities,” Ronen said.

Calls to split from the utility come as San Francisco officials grapple with the possibility that the bankruptcy could disrupt the flow of cash from PG&E to CleanPowerSF, the city's community choice program. Localities like San Francisco generate and purchase power on behalf of customers through community-choice aggregation programs, or CCAs, and then pay utilities to distribute the power.

While PG&E’s bankruptcy could present an opportunity to expand public power in San Francisco, local leaders say it could threaten the CCA just as the city is expanding its enrollment to 360,000 accounts by April, nearly all of the city’s power customers.

San Francisco’s State Senator Scott Wiener said that he’ll be looking to protect the interests of CleanPowerSF in Sacramento. In the past, he has criticized PG&E for fighting the community choice model.

“There's really a lot of uncertainty right now, and we will be probably be playing some defense,” Wiener said, in an interview.There's a potential for some contentious fighting in the legislature this year around energy. PG&E and others will try to protect the centralized model, and some could take this as an opportunity to try to undermine CCAs and distributed energy resources...by arguing that the utilities are fragile and we shouldn't be doing anything that could potentially undermine them.”

That said, Wiener sees real opportunity for expanding the SFPUC, which runs CleanPowerSF, even if the details will be clear only over the course of the next few months. “I would like for us to be in a position to move in that direction if the opportunity presents itself and it makes sense,” he said. “The benefits are local decision-making about energy mix, and pursuing an aggressive clean energy approach.”

“One of the critiques of PG&E is that its geography is so massive that it becomes very challenging for it to safely maintain all of that all that unending infrastructure and that having a smaller utility can allow more focus on infrastructure safety and reinvestment,” Wiener said. “There are publicly owned utilities around the state that have been quite successful. It is a model that we know can work, and San Francisco already has a publicly owned utility.”

Paying for distribution assets

San Francisco voters passed Proposition A last June, which allows the SFPUC to issue a revenue bond to pay for power equipment, so long as it has a two-thirds approval from the Board of Supervisors. The goal of the proposition was to spur the development of renewable energy generation and prohibit San Francisco from funding any more plants that generate power from fossil fuels or nuclear energy.

But now, leaders in San Francisco might use the bond authority to fund the initial cost of purchasing distribution equipment from PG&E and have ratepayers recoup the cost over several years. If San Francisco owned its own distribution assets, they expect the cost of power to be much lower than it is right now.

“That delta will help us actually pay for the upfront money,” SFPUC's Kelly said. “We can build our own facility and then have a ratepayers pay us, and it will be cheaper for the ratepayer.”

If the city doesn’t use its new bond authority, there is another pot of money available for city leaders to pay the acquisition cost. San Francisco has a $415 million windfall from extra revenue in a county education fund, the Educational Revenue Augmentation Fund, that could be used as part of a down payment to PG&E. Supervisor Aaron Peskin floated the idea during the board meeting. However, that move would likely be controversial as competing interest groups want to use the funds to pay for increasing services to San Francisco’s homeless population, while others want to use it in the schools.

The big remaining question: It’s unclear how much PG&E’s existing infrastructure would cost, and it’s unclear how much it is worth. The distribution system in San Francisco is “not in a state of good repair,” Kelly said. Just how badly it’s been neglected is unknown, and that’s one thing the SFPUC will be determining as it considers a plan for public power. They’ll need to estimate repair costs and potential operating costs before they understand how much money the SFPUC could make on the acquisition.

But one benefit of public power is that San Francisco won’t be looking to turn a profit. “Our costs of operating the system won't include the profit component,” said Barbara Hale, assistant general manager of the SFPUC. “We anticipate we would be able to afford to repay whatever the upfront costs are for purchasing the system through the bonding authority and repay any immediate repair of that system.”

Cash flow concerns

A big fear among CCAs across California is that the bankruptcy could disrupt the flow of remittance from PG&E. San Francisco is no exception.

Executives at the SFPUC say they are preparing for the worst, and they are examining all of their financial assets. “It's possible that a bankruptcy could interrupt the remittance of CleanPowerSF customer payments to the city,” Hale told the Board of Supervisors last month. “That's an impact that we are highly attentive to. We are analyzing the potential financial consequences of delayed payment from PG&E due to any bankruptcy and are working with the controller's office on potential mitigations.”

Hale does not expect that there will be any impact to power service in San Francisco, but the SFPUC is examining how it will pay all its bills in the event of a disruption. “We are well positioned in that we do have reserves,” Hale said. “We have a credit facility that has available capacity that can help us weather a situation like that. We do have tools available to us. We planned for situations like this.”

California Community Choice Association, or CalCCA, represents the state’s community choice electricity providers in Sacramento and to regulators. On the day PG&E filed bankruptcy, CalCCA released a statement saying it remains optimistic that PG&E will continue providing billing services for the state’s CCAs.

“We support PG&E’s first-day motion seeking the Bankruptcy Court’s approval to continue passing through CCA revenues in the ordinary course of business," the group said. "We agree with PG&E that 'the normal and uninterrupted remittance' of customer payments to CCAs and other public-purpose programs is of the utmost importance.”

SF pushes for control

For now, Breed's and Herrera’s offices are declining to comment further on the issue, and the SFPUC will only outline broad ending points.

One option is for the relationship between PG&E and San Francisco to be maintained as it existed before the bankruptcy. That is: San Francisco generates and acquires power and the utility distributes it. Another option is for San Francisco to increase its independence, which could be an expansion of CleanPowerSF, or the city could take control of power distribution entirely.

A push for local power seems likely, and Supervisor Peskin signaled his intention to move forward: “The option of — in a friendly way, through negotiation — acquiring assets within the city and county of San Francisco is on the table,” he said at the January board meeting. “And, of course, there's always Plan B, which is the power of eminent domain.”

Peskin, a longtime critic of PG&E, was on the board when the utility went bankrupt in the early 2000s. For years, local leaders have wanted independence from PG&E, and the relationship between the city and the utility has grown increasingly tense in recent years. It escalated last year, when state regulators approved a proposal from PG&E and other investor-owned utilities to change how CCAs compensate the companies for long-term power-purchase contracts, a move that is expected to raise rates on local customers.

“The list of grievances between the City and County of San Francisco and PG&E is growing exponentially,” Peskin said. “Whether it is affordable housing, or recreation and parks facilities, Municipal Transit Agency facilities, PG&E — relative to our own power — has put up roadblocks at virtually every place that they can. Costly, time-consuming roadblocks. And then with the CleanPowerSF program, they are figuring out ways to screw us on community choice aggregation. This really continues to be a hostage situation.”

The solution? “I think, as a city, this is an unparalleled opportunity to move to energy independence,” he said.

Regidores aprueban validación de elección en nueve juntas auxiliares

El Regidor Jacobo Ordaz denunció que en la elección de San Jerónimo Caleras "no hubo certeza"

Con voto diferenciado regidores del Ayuntamiento de Puebla avalaron las elecciones en las juntas auxiliares de: San Andrés Azumiatla, San Baltazar Campeche, San Baltazar Tetela, San Jerónimo Caleras, San Miguel Canoa, San Pedro Zacachimalpa, Santa María Guadalupe Tecola y Santo Tomás Chautla.

En la discusión previa al dictamen, el regidor Roberto Elí Esponda, se "desmarcó" de las acciones del gobierno municipal, esto porque promovió la invalidez de los plebiscitos de Canoa y San Jerónimo Caleras al asegurar que hubo "irregularidades" que no tomó en cuenta el secretario de Gobernación, René Sánchez Galindo.

Al respecto, el Regidor Jacobo Ordaz denunció que en la elección de San Jerónimo Caleras "no hubo certeza" porque intevinieron funcionarios municipales, de los cuales evitó mencionar nombres.

Finalmente las y los regidores acordaron iniciar el procedimiento para repetir los comicios en San Pablo Xochimehuacán, Ignacio Romero Vargas, San Felipe Hueyotlipan, San Sebastián de Aparicio, La Resurrección e  Ignacio Zaragoza, Santa María Xonacatepec y San Francisco Totimehuacan; nueva elección será el 24 de febrero.

          Jeff Bezos trata de demostrar que no se dejará amedrentar      Cache   Translate Page      

millonario. Jeff Bezos se había negado a sumarse a otros billonarios que destinan parte de sus ganancias a proyectos caritativos, pero el año pasado anunció un fondo filantrópico.

San Francisco, Estados UnidosConstruyó una de las compañías más valiosas del mundo desde cero y se convirtió en la persona más rica del planeta.

Ahora, Jeff Bezos trata de demostrar que no se dejará amedrentar en una batalla de voluntades con un empresario políticamente conectado, propietario de un tabloide de supermercado.

Para saberThe National Enquirer sacó a la luz en enero que Bezos mantenía una relación extramatrimonial con la expresentadora de televisión Lauren Sánchez, días después de que el dueño de Amazon y su esposa, MacKenzie, anunciaran que se divorciaban.

Bezos (de 55 años) fundó Amazon en el garaje de su casa en 1994 y fue impulsando la compañía hasta convertirla en un coloso que domina las ventas en línea, tiene operaciones en música y televisión por streaming, comida, informática en la nube, robótica, inteligencia artificial y mucho más.

Sus negocios incluyen, además, el diario The Washington Post y la compañía privada espacial Blue Origin.

A pesar de llevar años en el punto de mira por el crecimiento de Amazon y por su fortuna estimada en 133,000 millones de dólares, se convirtió en el gran centro de atención el pasado enero cuando anunció que, tras 25 años de matrimonio, se divorciaba de su mujer.

Cuando la revista National Enquirer, controlada por David Pecker, el aliado del presidente Donald Trump, amenazó con publicar fotos íntimas y sensacionalistas del multimillonario con su amante, este contraatacó haciendo públicos los detalles de sus relaciones.

Ya la Fiscalía Federal está investigando si National Enquirer intentó chantajear a Bezos, como denunció el ejecutivo en un artículo de prensa, informó CNN.

“Si en mi posición no puedo parar este tipo de extorsión, ¿cuánta gente puede?”, escribió Bezos en el servicio de blogs Medium.

Esa bomba provocó una oleada de reacciones, muchas de ellas a favor de su decisión de hacer frente a Pecker y al Enquirer.

“No todo el mundo puede detener a los intimidadores, los mafiosos y los extorsionadores, pero si puedes, tienes que hacerlo”, señaló su competidor tecnológico Pierre Omidyar, fundador de eBay.

David Pecker, jefe de American Media (AMI), matriz del National Enquirer, obtuvo inmunidad de la Fiscalía en agosto de 2018 a cambio de colaborar con las autoridades en su investigación sobre unos pagos para silenciar a dos mujeres que supuestamente habían mantenido relaciones extramatrimoniales con el presidente Trump, y que se llevaron a cabo con la mediación del abogado de Trump Michael Cohen.

American Media ha informado en un breve comunicado que ha comenzado una investigación interna sobre las alegaciones de Bezos.

Los Juegos del HambreHasta hace poco, Bezos era percibido como un empresario estudioso y decidido que dirigía su negocio con una determinación implacable y que evitaba exponerse a los focos, si bien era evidente que chocaba con Trump tras una serie de ataques por parte del presidente.

Bezos insinuó en el texto que el origen de las publicaciones en su contra puede estar en la cobertura que hace The Washington Post, también de su propiedad, sobre la presidencia de Trump y también sobre Arabia Saudí.

Durante muchos años, Amazon estuvo perdiendo dinero mientras Bezos insistía en invertir los beneficios para conseguir ganancias futuras, un plan que demoró en dar frutos.

El año pasado el anuncio de que la compañía iba a buscar una segunda sede, después de la de Seattle, lanzó una competición que fue calificada por algunos de “Juegos del Hambre”, y actualmente se debate entre dos lugares: la ciudad de Nueva York o en las afueras de Washington.

Az amerikai író egyik népszerű és érett alkotása, egy négylábú vidám és humoros, kalandokban és szenvedésekben egyaránt bővelkedő, romantikus, de valószerű története. Mihály, az ír terrier nagy kalandjai azzal kezdődnek, hogy Mihályt (A beszélő kutya hősének, Jeromosnak a fivérét) magához csalja egy szeretetre méltó, sör- és kutyabolond hajópincér. Az imádott új gazda dédelgeti, oktatja, megtanítja ötig számolni és elővarázsolja belőle éneklőkészségét is. Felejthetetlen hónapokat töltenek együtt különféle hajókon, majd San Francisco-ban, ahol „ az éneklő kutya” tartja el művészetével a Pincért és barátját. Egy pénzhajhász orvos azonban nemcsak a lepratelepre hurcolja gazdájától, hanem a szabadságától is megfosztja Mihályt. Kegyetlen állatidomítók karmai közé kerül. Itt ismerik fel és váltják ki rabságából Kennanék, Jeromos gazdái. Az író a mese keretében mesteri portrékat fest a könyvben szereplő jó és hitvány emberekről, megbélyegzi a kincsre éhes filisztereket. A kötet irodalmi és szórakozási igényeket egyaránt kielégít.

San Francisco, Feb 10 (IANS) Google is rolling out the new update for its search browser, Chrome 72, with bug fixes, security updates and newer features like external storage access for Android apps including microSD cards and USB drives along with Picture in Picture (PiP) mode for Chrome sites.

With Chrome 72, Google has optimised the browser for touchscreen devices in tablet mode and added app shortcuts for Android apps that are now searchable in the launcher, the company wrote in a blog post on Saturday.

"Users can find an app shortcut by long pressing or right-clicking on an Android app," the post said.

The update also brings Google Assistant and Android 9 Pie to more Chromebooks after a short testing period on the 'Pixel Slate' device.

The update also features a page about touch-gestures in Chrome's built-in screen reader -- ChromeVox -- tutorial.

"Within the screen reader, we have added a setting in the ChromeVox options page that would read anything under the mouse cursor," the post added.

Additionally, Chrome 72 would allow files saved via Backup and Sync on Google Drive to be available in the Files app under the My Drive/Computers menu option.

Systems would be receiving the updates over the next several days, the post noted.

Oh Sees naar Paradiso

De hoeveelheid bands, platen en producties die John Dwyer op zijn kerfstok heeft staan neemt mythische vormen aan. Absolute paradepaard is en blijft toch wel ‘zijn’ Oh Sees. Een ontembare garagerock-machine die meestal met twee drummers, een basgitarist en een manische Dwyer op gitaar opereert. Sinds de oprichting in 1997 in San Francisco worden er meer dan twintig albums uitgebracht en vinden er ontelbare tours plaats die net zo goed aftandse kraakpanden als de grootste festivals aandoen.

Aula de Cine de la Universidad de Zaragoza: Anita Loos

Descripción:

El Aula de Cine de la Universidad de Zaragoza continúa su repaso a la trayectoria de las guionistas pioneras del Séptimo Arte. Si el curso pasado Frances Marion protagonizaba uno de sus ciclos, este año lo hará Anita Loos, otra escritora de Hollywood con la que aquella compartió años de trabajo. Ocho películas en las que trabajó esta guionista norteamericana, realizadas, en los años 30 y 40, por directores como George Cukor, Jack Conway, Sam Wood, Robert Z. Leonard, Mervyn LeRoy o Clarence Brown, conforman el programa.

Anita Loos (1888-1981) trabajó varias décadas como guionista cinematográfica, además de escribir obras teatrales para Broadway, publicar varios libros de ficción y no ficción, y colaborar regularmente en revistas como The New Yorker o Vanity Fair. Actualmente es recordada sobre todo por su novela Los caballeros las prefieren rubias, convertida en musical de Broadway en 1926, llevada al cine en 1928 en una adaptación guionizada por ella misma y hoy perdida, y en 1953, con la famosa versión dirigida por Howard Hawks e interpretada por Marilyn Monroe y Jane Russell. Loos, nacida en una pequeña localidad de California, inicia su carrera en el cine mudo. Trabajó entre otros con David W. Griffith, junto a la mencionada Frances Marion, con el que sería su segundo marido, el director John Emerson; o con Douglas Fairbanks. En el cine sonoro estuvo largamente vinculada a Metro Goldwyn Mayer dejando muestras de su talento en el Hollywood de los años treinta.

          0:50 Nächster Halt: Fruitvale Station - (Fruitvale Station)      Cache   Translate Page      
Ein junger Afroamerikaner wird nach einer Auseinandersetzung in der S-Bahn von der Polizei aufgegriffen. Die Situation eskaliert zu einem Fall tödlicher Polizeigewalt. "Nächster Halt: Fruitvale Station" erzählt die letzten 24 Stunden im Leben von Oscar Grant. Der Film basiert auf einem realen Fall. Nachdem er eine Haftstrafe wegen Drogenhandels abgesessen hat, wendet sich das Leben von Oscar Grant wieder zum Besseren. Der junge Afroamerikaner aus der kalifornischen Bay Area nahe San Francisco verspricht seiner Freundin Sophina ein treuer Partner und seiner vierjährigen Tochter Tatiana ein besserer Vater zu sein. Auch mit seiner Mutter, dem ruhenden Pol und Zentrum seiner Familie, hat Oscar sich ausgesöhnt. Der junge Mann bemüht sich redlich: Er kippt ein Päckchen Drogen ins Meer, anstatt sie zu verkaufen. Er kümmert sich um einen verletzen Hund, der auf der Straße angefahren wurde. Seine Mitmenschen behandelt er zuvorkommend und mit spontaner Hilfsbereitschaft. Selbst ein kleiner Rückschlag scheint ihn nicht mehr aus der Bahn zu werfen: Wegen wiederholter Unpünktlichkeit in der Vergangenheit verliert Oscar seinen Job im Supermarkt. In der Silvesternacht 2008 wird der charismatische junge Mann von seiner Vergangenheit eingeholt: Oscar fährt mit Sophina und seinen Freunden nach San Francisco, um das Feuerwerk zu besuchen. Auf Anraten seiner Mutter mit der S-Bahn unterwegs, wird Oscar auf der Rückfahrt im Zug von einem alten Rivalen erkannt. Eine Schlägerei bricht aus, der Zug stoppt. Die anrückende Polizei nimmt lediglich Oscar und ein paar seiner Freunde ins Visier und hält sie auf dem Bahnsteig der "Fruitvale Station" fest. Die Handy-Kameras zahlreicher S-Bahn-Passagiere sind auf das Geschehen gerichtet. Kurz darauf fallen Schüsse. Oscar Grant stirbt noch in der gleichen Nacht im Krankenhaus, er wird 22 Jahre alt. Das Kinodebüt von Regisseur Ryan Coogler feierte seine Weltpremiere 2013 auf Robert Redfords "Sundance Filmfestival" im amerikanischen Utah und wurde dort nicht nur mit dem Großen Preis der Jury, sondern auch mit dem begehrten Publikumspreis ausgezeichnet. Anschließend gewann der von Oscar-Gewinner Forest Whitaker produzierte Film weltweit 37 weitere Preise, darunter in Cannes den "Prix de l'Avenir" in der Sektion "Un certain regard" und zwei Preise der New Yorker Filmkritiker. "Nächster Halt: Fruitvale Station", mit Michael B. Jordan in der Hauptrolle des Oscar Grant glänzend besetzt, enthält auch einige der Handy-Bilder, die in den frühen Morgenstunden des 1. Januar 2009 an der Fruitvale Station entstanden sind. Die Tötung von Oscar Grant am diesem Tag hat eine besondere Symbolkraft: Nur zwei Monate zuvor hatte Barack Obama seinen historischen Wahlsieg als erster afroamerikanischer Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten errungen. Drei Wochen nach Oscar Grants Tod wurde Obama offiziell ins Amt eingeführt. Für den erst 30-jährigen Filmemacher Ryan Coogler war "Nächster Halt: Fruitvale Station" der Beginn einer vielversprechenden Hollywood-Karriere. Nach seiner Regie bei dem "Rocky"-Sequel "Creed" mit Sylvester Stallone inszenierte er die Verfilmung des Marvel-Comics "Black Panther" (2018).

          The Birds (1963)      Cache   Translate Page      

Alfred Hitchcock was a real SOB (for one thing, he killed Boris Karloff's Thriller) and he was proud of the fact that he treated actors "like cattle". Say what you will about the man, though, he knew how to turn out a psychological horror film, and The Birds is an absolute masterpiece of the genre. From the IMDb:

Melanie Daniels is the modern rich socialite, part of the jet-set who always gets what she wants. When lawyer Mitch Brenner sees her in a pet shop, he plays something of a practical joke on her, and she decides to return the favor. She drives about an hour north of San Francisco to Bodega Bay, where Mitch spends the weekends with his mother Lydia and younger sister Cathy. Soon after her arrival, however, the birds in the area begin to act strangely. A seagull attacks Melanie as she is crossing the bay in a small boat, and then, Lydia finds her neighbor dead, obviously the victim of a bird attack. Soon, birds in the hundreds and thousands are attacking anyone they find out of doors. There is no explanation as to why this might be happening, and as the birds continue their vicious attacks, survival becomes the priority.

There are a few fleeting graphic scenes, but the real horror is in the mystery of why the birds attack as they do (it is never explained) and in the pervasive fear of the hapless and helpless humans involved. While the whole film is, surprisingly, available on YouTube (for now) and is embedded below, I also include first what is one of the greatest scenes in the history of cinema. If you've never seen the film, and I don't imagine that many Neatoramanauts have, then buckle up; it's going to be a rough two hours. FWIW, this is my wife's favorite film, and she hates horror films.

The School Scene - a masterpiece in direction and editing.

          Apple reportedly sued over time consuming two-factor authentication process      Cache   Translate Page      

San Francisco:  A recent lawsuit filed against Apple accused the two-factor authentication process of the iPhone-maker of being disruptive to users, time consuming and abusive since it cannot be rolled back to a less safe login method after 14 days.

The suit, filed by Jay Brodsky in California, alleged that Apple did not get user consent to enable two-factor authentication, an Apple insider reported on Saturday.

Two-factor authentication is an extra layer of security designed by Apple to ensure that you are the only person who can access your account, even if someone knows your password.

Brodsky's suit also mentions that once enabled, Apple's two-factor authentication "imposes an extraneous logging-in procedure that requires a user to both remember password and have access to a trusted device or phone number" when a device is enabled.

The suit alleged that Apple's e-mail that reaches users upon enabling the two-factor authentication was insufficient to warn the user that the setting was irrevocable.

Seeking all funds, revenues and benefits that the iPhone-maker has "unjustly received" from the action, the suit demanded injunctive relief, fines and penalties assessed on Apple in accordance with the "Computer Fraud and Abuse Act."

Brodsky also asserted that Apple was violating California's Invasion of Privacy Act.

Apple has not responded to the issue yet.


          Google rolling out Chrome 72 with bug fixes, newer features      Cache   Translate Page      

San Francisco: Google is rolling out the new update for its search browser, Chrome 72, with bug fixes, security updates and newer features like external storage access for Android apps including microSD cards and USB drives along with Picture in Picture (PiP) mode for Chrome sites.

With Chrome 72, Google has optimised the browser for touchscreen devices in tablet mode and added app shortcuts for Android apps that are now searchable in the launcher, the company wrote in a blog post on Saturday.

"Users can find an app shortcut by long pressing or right-clicking on an Android app," the post said.

The update also brings Google Assistant and Android 9 Pie to more Chromebooks after a short testing period on the 'Pixel Slate' device.

The update also features a page about touch-gestures in Chrome's built-in screen reader -- ChromeVox -- tutorial.

"Within the screen reader, we have added a setting in the ChromeVox options page that would read anything under the mouse cursor," the post added.

Additionally, Chrome 72 would allow files saved via Backup and Sync on Google Drive to be available in the Files app under the My Drive/Computers menu option.

Systems would be receiving the updates over the next several days, the post noted.


          Google slammed for risking Android with infected PNG images      Cache   Translate Page      

San Francisco: Google is reportedly being slammed by security experts following the disclosure of a vulnerability that has exposed Android to the risk of being compromised by infected images.

Revealed in Google's February security update, the flaw leaves Android systems compromised with a modified Portable Network Graphics (PNG) that could trick users into viewing an infected image, Android Headlines reported on Saturday.

PNG is a raster-graphics file-format that supports lossless data compression.

The security flaw affects devices running Android 7.0 Nougat and newer versions of the software.

According to experts, the root cause of this alarming vulnerability has been a light approach to media content on Google's part.

The new firmware is currently only available on the Pixel handsets and a small number of Android One devices that run a stock version of the operating system (OS), the report informed.

However, Google's February security update addresses the issue, but the global rollout of the security patch is expected to take more time.


          Realzan la memoria de Frank Robinson en la Serie del Caribe      Cache   Translate Page      
Frank Robinson (izquierda) y Tany Pérez en Puerto Rico, en fotografía publicada por El Nuevo Día

El legendario miembro del Salón de la Fama, manager campeón con los Cangrejeros de Santurce en 1971, murió en Estados Unidos y su legado fue recordado en la región

Por Ignacio Serrano
ElEmergente.com

La petición de un minuto de silencio antes del encuentro entre los Cangrejeros de Santurce y las Estrellas Orientales avisó a los asistentes del estadio nacional Rod Carew que algo serio había pasado. Horas antes, en Estados Unidos, había fallecido el legendario Frank Robinson, el único pelotero en la historia de la MLB con premios al Jugador Más Valioso tanto en la Liga Nacional como en la Americana.

Robinson, compañero de Luis Aparicio en aquellos brillantes Orioles de Baltimore que dominaron la Serie Mundial de 1966, expiró a los 83 años de edad en California, este jueves. Como antigua figura de la Serie del Caribe, no podía dejar de ser recordado en el parque canaleño.

El ex toletero derecho, autor de 586 jonrones, décimo de todos los tiempos en las Mayores, con 1.812 empujadas y un formidable OPS de .926, con 154 de OPS ajustado, vistió el uniforme de la misma divisa puertorriqueña que asistió en esta oportunidad al Clásico de Febrero.

El diario El Nuevo Díarecordó el paso de Robinson por la Isla del Encanto, el lugar donde inició su carrera como piloto, oficio en el que marcaría la historia de la gran carpa.

Porque el slugger nacido texano rompió la barrera racial en 1975, al ser nombrado manager-jugador de los Indios de Cleveland y convertirse en el primer estratega de raza negra en el mejor beisbol del mundo.

Ya antes de eso había mostrado esa habilidad en Puerto Rico. Después de actuar como patrullero de los Leones de Ponce en el torneo 1954-1955, siendo un prospecto de los Rojos de Cincinnati, tomó las riendas de los Cangrejeros a partir de 1968 y durante ocho torneos, con una pausa en la zafra 1971-1972.

Fue en la Serie del Caribe de 1971 cuando puso su nombre entre los dirigentes campeones, al vencer con los santurcinos en la segunda edición de la segunda etapa de la cita regional.

A sus 21 zafras como bigleaguer añadió otras 16 como mandamás de los aborígenes y los Gigantes de San Francisco, Orioles de Baltimore, Expos de Montreal y Nacionales de Washington. Ya era miembro de Cooperstown, exaltado en su primera aparición en la papeleta de votación, en 1982, pero aunque fue premiado como Manager del Año en 1989, con los oropéndolas, no pudo replicar el éxito que tuvo en la pelota invernal ni logró ganar una vez un banderín de división.

“Era un fenómeno”, declaró Tany Pérez, también miembro del Salón de la Fama, en la nota que este viernes publicó El Nuevo Día en su edición impresa. “Dirigía como jugaba, bien agresivo, peleando. Era fuerte como dirigente y como jugador. Seguía las reglas del beisbol. Era de los que le gustaba tirarse duro en segunda, en el plato, como se hacía antes en el béisbol. No creo que hubiese podido jugar en esta época”.

          Venezuela: Democratic Uprising or U.S. Coup?      Cache   Translate Page      
Community activists in Caracas who support the government of President Nicolas Maduro  have formed food co-ops to help overcome the economic crisis

by Reese Erlich

Tens of thousands of angry people march in the streets to protest lack of democracy. Women bang on pots to raise alarm over the economic crisis brought on by a socialist president. The United States denounces the leftist government and promises to help bring democracy to the country.

Venezuela in 2019? No, it was Chile in 1973.

Chileans had elected a Marxist president, Salvador Allende, and the U.S. government was seeking to oust him. Allende’s platform rejected the anti-communist foreign policy of the United States and threatened the profits of U.S. corporations. So, in a time-honored tactic of course, the Nixon Administration claimed Allende was an autocrat allied with the U.S.S.R.

With National Security Council head Henry Kissinger as point man, the United States squeezed Chile economically, sponsored trucker strikes, fomented opposition demonstrations, and ultimately supported the coup that brought General Augusto Pinochet to power. The people of Chile would suffer under a brutal dictatorship for the next sixteen years.

Perhaps the Trump Administration is hoping history will repeat itself, but so far Venezuelans aren’t going for it. Elected President Nicolas Maduro, while politically weakened by recent U.S. maneuvering, still retains a measure of popular support. Unlike the Chilean army, much of the Venezuelan military remains loyal to the government.

As I reported from Caracas two years ago, Maduro survived violent attacks by upper-class opposition leaders on his government. His supporters hope he will do so again, despite massive economic chaos promoted by the United States.

In January the Trump Administration intensified a brutal economic and political campaign to overthrow Maduro. It blocked the state owned oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela, known as PDVSA, from receiving payment for oil shipments to the United States. The administration also orchestrated denunciations of Maduro by U.S. allies in Latin America and Europe.

Venezuela depends on oil exports to earn hard currency. The Wall Street Journal reported that oil production has dropped 10 percent since December. That means the government will have a harder time importing essential goods, like pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, and food.

While the U.S. has sanctioned PDVSA, it has also granted waivers allowing Chevron Corporation and two U.S. oil service providers, Halliburton and Schlumberger, to continue operating and making profits in Venezuela. Hmmmm. The U.S. promotion of democracy in Latin America seems, once again, to be attached to corporate interests.

“The Trump Administration is trying to asphyxiate Venezuela,” Carolina Morales, a Venezuelan immigrant rights activist living in San Francisco, told me. “The U.S. claims it favors humanitarian aid to Venezuela, but the best aid is a functioning economy. The sanctions hurt ordinary people.”

Trump and the Venezuelan opposition claim that Maduro orchestrated fraudulent presidential elections in May 2018 and has become an autocrat. The Venezuelan constitution provides that if the presidency is “abandoned,” the president of the National Assembly can assume that office. On January 23, National Assembly head Juan Guaidó swore himself in as president, claiming that Maduro had abandoned his office by conducting fraudulent elections.

However, the major opposition parties had boycotted the 2018 elections because they were badly divided. They made no claims that Maduro had “abandoned” the presidency. The argument-- a thin legal thread created to justify a coup-- arose months later.

Guaidó, until last month, was a virtual unknown. He had never run for national office, and was head of the National Assembly only as part of a rotation system among the opposition parties. Guaidó’s party, Popular Will, is self-described as a social democratic party. The United States will certainly pressure Popular Will to adopt neo-liberal economic policies such as tax benefits for the rich, taking on onerous loans from international banks and privatizing state owned companies, particularly PDVSA.

Venezuelans have been down that path before. Neoliberal economic policies caused a massive economic crisis in the 1990s, leading to the election of Hugo Chávez, according to Luis Salas, a former minister of economy under Maduro. I interviewed him during my last trip to Caracas.

“That era only produced increased poverty and high inflation,” Salas told me.

Venezuelans will likely be worse off under opposition rule than under Maduro, as admitted by Fernando Cutz, a former White House official who worked on Venezuela policy.

“Things probably will get worse for the people of Venezuela before they get better when you actually start doing things for the greater good,” Cutz told the New York Times.

Surely, the opposition owes much of its support to the country's deteriorating economy. Inflation hit a staggering 80,000 percent last year and is expected to go even higher in 2019.

That means workers’ wages are almost worthless. “It’s difficult to get enough money to buy food,” admitted immigration activist Morales.

Stringent U.S. sanctions and fluctuating oil prices have impacted the Venezuelan economy. But the government also made serious errors, according to Rodulfo Perez, a former minister of education in Maduro’s cabinet.

“We should have invested our oil money in the domestic economy,” Perez told me during my last trip. “Such a policy would have strengthened the bolívar fuerte [Venezuelan currency] and reduced the need for imports.”

Trump’s Latin American policy is now spearheaded by John Bolton, Elliott Abrams, and a group of neocons determined to reassert U.S. control of Venezuela’s oil. And, as Bolton has admitted, “It will make a big difference to the United States economically if we could have American oil companies invest in and produce the oil capabilities in Venezuela.”

From a geopolitical standpoint, the neocons see overthrowing the government in Venezuela as a first step towards doing the same in Cuba and Nicaragua.

A U.S. coup is by no means a done deal. “I am optimistic and hoping the government will survive,” said activist Morales. She then added, “I’m also worried. The U.S. could send troops to Venezuela, which would provoke a civil war. There could be thousands of deaths in the streets. That’s why I’m speaking up against this coup.”

Taking a programming cue from the fantastically popular esports world, PRO Chess recently hosted its second finals in San Francisco with the top four teams — the Ljubljana Turtles, Chengdu Pandas, Armenian Eagles and Saint Louis Archbishops.

Body found at plane wreckage near California mountain peak
MOUNT DIABLO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a body has been found in the wreckage of a plane they believed crashed Friday night two miles southwest of the peak of Mount Diablo in Northern California.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor says the single-engine Mooney M20 crashed into the hillside in Contra Costa County. Gregor says the exact time of the crash hasn't been determined yet.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
He says the aircraft burned after crashing.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
California State Parks spokeswoman Gloria Sandoval says the body was found at the crash site and that the Contra Costa County coroner's office is at the scene.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
KGO-TV in San Francisco reports that authorities say the pilot was believed to be the only one on the plane. The pilot's name was not released.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
Gregor says the pilot was flying from Hayward to Lincoln. He says that on Saturday, a family member of the pilot reported the aircraft was overdue after it had not landed as scheduled.
&nbsp;&nbsp;
The FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board will investigate.

          Apple rolls out fix for FaceTime bug      Cache   Translate Page      

San Francisco: Apple has released the fix for its recently discovered bug in the FaceTime software that allowed people to eavesdrop on others while using its group video chat feature.

"We again apologise and we thank our customers for their patience. In addition to addressing the bug that was reported, our team conducted a thorough security audit of the FaceTime service and made additional updates to both the FaceTime app and server to improve security," The Washington Post quoted Apple as saying on Friday.

Even as Apple rolled out a security fix for consumers, New York Attorney General Letitia James is reportedly investigating the company's response to the FaceTime bug.

The bug was reported earlier this week by a 14-year-old boy from Arizona named Grant Thompson.

Rewarding him for his discovery, Apple has decided to pay an undisclosed amount to the Thompson family along with making a gift towards Grant's education, the report said.

With iOS 12.1 and later versions, Group FaceTime is designed to make it easy to chat with multiple people at the same time.

It's always been a bit of a local secret, until now. In Truck, a new hardcore feature from Naked Sword Originals, owner Paul Miller opens up about some of the bar's dirtier stories; the invite-only "Speakeasy" parties, the backdoor bartenders, the customers that stick around after closing time...as an unrivaled cast of hot men bring them to life. Find out what really goes on when the lights go down, as Mr. Pam and the Naked Sword crew uncover the sweaty, sex-drenched tales behind this San Francisco institution.

          Do we need to slip Viagra into the water supply?      Cache   Translate Page      
In newgeography, Joel Kotkin writes,
We may live amidst what seems a libidinous culture, but oddly also an increasingly sexless time. Of course, the drop in early teen sex - and even more so, teen pregnancies - represents positive developments, but when lack of social interaction leads to celibacy in the twenties, thirties and beyond, the implications are less than wholesome.

...The most extreme cases of libidinous decline are in Asia. In 2005, a third of Japanese single people ages 18 to 34 were virgins; by 2015 this expanded to 43 percent. A quarter of men over 50 never marry. This “sex recession” even impacts places like Hong Kong’s famous Wan Chai “red light” district, now being reinvented as an upscale hipster area as the sex trade plummets. China’s current generation of men are so socially disconnected that the Communist Party, and some private firms, now teach them how to date; similar attempts have been made, with apparently little effect, in Singapore.

The tech-savvy children of modernity clearly have problems relating to the opposite sex, a phenomenon traced in part due to their immersion on social media and access to internet porn. As social media becomes increasingly pervasive, and algorithms more sophisticated, more people appear to be exchanging human contact for that of a machine. According to Amazon, half of the conversations with the company’s smart-home device Alexa are of non-utilitarian nature – groans about life, jokes, existential questions. The Institute for Creative Technologies suggests that people are less scared about self-disclosure when they believe they’re interacting with a virtual person, rather than a real one. “By 2022, it’s possible that your personal device will know more about your emotional state than your own family,” suggests Annette Zimmermann, research vice-president at the consulting company Gartner.

Not surprisingly, a survey of American millennials found 65 percent don’t feel comfortable engaging with someone face-to-face, and 80 percent prefer conversing digitally. Similar patterns have been found in Australia where time glued to screens has raised a generation “incapable of small talk, critical thinking and problem-solving.”

In some countries, notably Japan and Germany, there’s a growing interest in using artificial beings to perform various tasks, and even provide sexual services, as an alternative to the grisly trauma of human intimacy. Shops offering sex robots provide, as one promoter suggests, “a safe space for men to practice healthy sexual interactions “without the complexity of a normal human relationship.

As mammals we are equipped with a sex drive that, in the past, fueled the formation of families and the procreation of children. This drive also created many problems, including over population and sexual oppression, but the decline could now foster an unexpected, and unprecedented, population decrease never seen outside periods of famine, warfare or plague.

In many countries, economics also help discourage family formation. High property prices and rents associated with dense cities correlate closely with low marriage and fertility rates. The places where child-bearing has plunged towards historic lows are generally those with the highest house costs; including Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles, Boston and San Francisco.

...Can this process be reversed, short of slipping Viagra into the water supply? Certainly limiting children’s exposure to social media, and particularly pornography, should be at the top of every parent’s agenda. The media also could focus less on dysfunction of families, however entertaining, and more on their positive attributes.

from the San Francisco Fed

-- this post authored by Vasco Curdia

The Federal Reserve dropped the federal funds rate to near zero during the Great Recession to bolster the U.S. economy. Allowing the federal funds rate to drop below zero may have reduced the depth of the recession and enabled the economy to return more quickly to its full potential. It also may have allowed inflation to rise faster toward the Fed's 2% target. In other words, negative interest rates may be a useful tool to promote the Fed's dual mandate.

Palma de Mallorca 

Una historia que va en paralelo a la evolución de la humanidad, es la que se ha visto pasar desde Mallorca, la mayor de las Islas Baleares. La fama de este archipiélago quizás llegó a su cumbre con la promoción veraniega de Ibiza (la menor de las islas) como un destino de fiesta dentro de Europa. Sin embargo, hay decenas de atractivos naturales, históricos, culturales y gastronómicos que están presentes durante todo el año para el disfrute de los visitantes.

 Palma de Mallorca es la ciudad más grande, capital de la comunidad autónoma y una urbe esplendorosa forjada entre iglesias góticas y casonas del siglo XVII y XIX. Está perfectamente conectada con Europa y no hace falta pasar por España para llegar hasta aquí. La ruta con mejor costo-beneficio es vía París con Air France, que ofrece un menú delicatessen a bordo.

 El templo ícono de la ciudad es la catedral de Santa María de Palma Mallorca, un edificio gótico que comenzó a construirse en el siglo XIV, sobre las ruinas de la mezquita de Medina Mayurca. Este se terminó de construir en el siglo XVII e incluso, en el siglo XX el afamado Gaudí, le realizó una reforma que duró una década. Hoy es uno de los templos más espectaculares de Europa. 

En los alrededores está la Basílica de San Miguel, la Plaza Mayor, el Palacio Real de la Almudaina (una reestructura del palacio Zuda, donde vivía los gobernantes musulmanes), el edificio de los baños árabes... en fin, todo un mosaico arquitectónico que aquilata el pasado musulmán con la reconstrucción cristiana. 

Las calles del centro de la ciudad en su mayoría son peatonales, hay decenas de comercios que ofrecen comida y artesanías locales, mezclados con firmas transnacionales que ofrecen todo tipo de productos. Uno de los sitios que vale la pena visitar es el Mercado del Olivar, a unos pasos de la plaza mayor, el cual continúa siendo un centro de abasto popular con productos mallorquines, al mismo tiempo que ofrece una zona para degustar tapas, pintxos y raciones de cocina local, con vinos y aceites de la tierra de Mallorca. Caminar por sus pasillo representa toda una experiencia gastronómica y enológica. 

Hay decenas de historias de éxito que se albergan en Mallorca, una de las más representativas es la de la familia Riu, conocida internacionalmente y, sobre todo, en México por los 18 hoteles que tienen en nuestras playas.

 En la Platja de Palma, se encuentra el hotel Riu San Francisco, que abrió sus puertas en 1953, con menos de 100 habitaciones. Como la isla es relativamente pequeña, rentamos un automóvil mediante el cual, en tan solo una hora, la recorrimos de punta a punta. Vale la pena destacar que todas sus carreteras y autopistas son libres, es decir, no tienen cuotas de peaje.

 El pueblo de Valldemossa está en la zona montañosa y es uno de los más pintorescos de las Baleares. La ciudad amurallada de Alcudia (la primera registrada en Mallorca) también es una joya arquitectónica y, por supuesto, el Faro de Formentor, que se encuentra en el extremo este de la isla, y que deja ver al azul intenso del Mar Mediterráneo entre los grandes acantilados de más de 300 metros que dibujan el paisaje.


 Por doquier hay playas de arenas claras que en el verano son visitadas por miles de alemanes e ingleses; que vienen en busca de vinos y aceite de oliva con denominaciones de origen, de los cuales hay una producción bastante importante.

 Otro de los pueblos que vale la pena visitar, es Petra, donde nació Fray Junípero Serra, quien en el siglo XVII fundó las misiones en la Sierra Gorda de Querétaro y en la Alta y Baja California, el mallorquín más universal y único español que tiene una imagen en el Capitolio de Estados Unidos. Esta es otra España, la que se acerca al África y se aleja de Europa, la que vive en las islas y ve salidas y puestas de sol paradisíacas, la que pocos mexicanos visitan, pero que deben incluir en su lista de lugares maravillosos que tienen que visitar.

¿CÓMO LLEGAR?

 Air France ofrece vuelos hasta Palma de Mallorca desde México, con una rápida conexión en París. 

¿DÓNDE HOSPEDARSE?

 Los hoteles RIU son iconos en la isla. El Riu Bravo es de los más confortables y accesibles. 

¿QUÉ COMER?

 No puedes dejar de probar la sobrasada, el arroz brut, el frito mallorquín, la lechona asada y, de postre, un gató.

- Execucions de Jerez: El 10 de febrer de 1892 a la plaça Belén de Jerez (Cadis, Andalusia, Espanya) són executats amb garrot pels botxins de Madrid, Sevilla i Granada, els anarquistes Manuel Fernández Reina (Busiqui), José Fernández Lamela, Manuel Silva Leal (El Lebrijano) i Antonio Zarzuela Granja, víctimes de la repressió sorgida arran de la revolta pagesa del mes anterior. El 8 de gener de 1892 va esclatar, al crit «Visca la Revolució social!», una insurrecció camperola a Jerez, ràpidament sufocada. Els dirigents d'aquest assaig de col·lectivisme agrari en foren detinguts i torturats. Fou l'executor madrileny qui primer va estrènyer la rosca a Busiqui; després el sevillà va fer el mateix amb Lamela i, finalment, el granadí acabà amb la vida de Zarzuela i d'El Lebrijano. No arribà a quinze minuts el temps que passà perquè tot acabés. Després, per exemple públic, els cadàvers romangueren exposats fins cap al tard. Aquestes execucions provocaran la radicalització de les postures d'alguns grups anarcocomunistes partidaris de la línia d'acció directa i individual. L'atemptat de Paulí Pallàs, del 24 de setembre de 1893, obrirà la dinàmica de repressió-anarcoterrorisme-repressió, que ja no s'aturarà fins als inicis del segle XX.

Octave Jahn

Octave Jahn

- Octave Jahn: El 10 de febrer de 1869 neix a Cherbourg (Baixa Normandia, França) el militant i propagandista anarquista Octave Jahn, també conegut com Souvarine. Telegrafista als 15 anys, va organitzar en 1884 la primera vaga d'aquest sector a París. Son pare el va amenaçar a internar-lo en un reformatori i va decidir a fugir; sortosament va trobar refugi a casa de la periodista llibertària Caroline Remy (Séverine). En 1886 va participar amb Tortelier, Marie Murjas, Tennevin, Niquet, Bidault i altres en la creació a París de la Lliga dels Antipatriotes, que va editar nombrosos cartells i va organitzar conferències antimilitaristes. En 1887 va ser un dels redactors amb Tennevin, Murjas i Paillette del periòdic parisenc L'Avant-garde Cosmopolite. També va fundar el grup «Les pieds plats», especialitzat en realitzar les mudances clandestines dels llogaters que no pagaven els arrendaments, i de la qual va compondre una cançó del mateix que es va popularitzar. Fugint de diverses condemnes i de la repressió es va refugiar a Bèlgica, on va prendre part en la vaga de maig de 1897 a la conca de l'Hainault, on es va distingir en els mítings pel seu discurs vehement i revolucionari. Detingut, va ser condemnat a dos anys i mig de presó per «provocació i destrucció de la propietat». Va ser internat a la presó de Mons, on el febrer de 1898 va caure malalt. Va ser alliberat la primavera de 1899 i va marxar a Barcelona, per retornar aviat a causa de la persecució de les autoritats espanyoles. El juliol de 1899 va realitzar una gran gira de conferències per Occitània. Instal·lat a Lió, va organitzar mítings, conferències i campanyes abstencionistes, fets pels quals va aconseguir nombroses condemnes i multes. L'agost de 1890 va començar a treballar de tipògraf i va ser un dels organitzadors del grup «La Jeunesse Cosmopolite», format per una vintena de militants especialitzat en la lluita antimilitarista i d'ajuda als desertors i insubmisos, i que tenia la seva seu al cafè Marcellin (105 Avenue de Saxe). El 16 i 17 d'agost de 1890 va participar com a delegat de Cambéry en el congrés de grups anarquistes de la regió de Ginebra, que va donar lloc a la fundació de la Federació Internacional de Reivindicacions Proletàries, el secretari de la qual serà Chomat. L'11 d'octubre de 1890 va fer, amb Paul Bernard i Claude Colas, una conferència a Roanne a resultes de la qual van ser condemnats tots tres en rebel·lia a un any de presó i a 100 francs de multa per fer «crida a l'assassinat». Amb Paul Bernard va participar en la preparació d'un Congrés Regional de la Regió Est fundador d'una Federació dels Obrers Reunits, basat en la tàctica de la vaga general i en l'entrada dels anarquistes en els sindicats; aquest congrés va ser presidit per un míting a la Sala Rivière el 31 d'octubre de 1890, on es va reivindicar la vaga general, el Primer de Maig i la propaganda pel fet. L'endemà, l'1 de novembre, va començar al cafè Marcellin el congrés que va agrupar 150 delegats, malgrat el boicot de certs anarquistes contraris a les posicions violentes de Jahn. El 2 de novembre la policia va detenir cinc delegats, però Jahn no va ser detingut ja que davant el boicot a les seves postures havia marxat a Suïssa. El 22 de novembre de 1890 va ser condemnat en rebel·lia a dos anys de presó i a 100 francs de multa per «provocació a l'assassinat i al pillatge». Alguns dies més tard, el 8 de desembre, l'Audiència del Loira el va condemnat a una nova pena d'un any de presó i a 100 francs de multa per les mateixes raons. Refugiat de bell nou a Catalunya, va militar al País Valencià i va fundar en 1893 el periòdic La Controversia, del qual es van editar cinc números. Des de la península va enviar articles al periòdic Le Pot à Colle, publicat per L. Guérineau. En 1894, després d'una breu estada a Alger, on va ser condemnat l'abril d'aquell any a un mes de presó, va retornar a França on ràpidament va rebre noves condemnes: dos anys de presó per «provocació a l'assassinat, al pillatge i a l'incendi» (20 de maig de 1894 a l'Audiència del Roine), sis mesos de presó (15 de juny de 1894 al Tribunal de Marsella), un any de presó per «provocació a l'assassinat i al pillatge» (15 de juny de 1894 a l'Audiència del Loira). El maig de 1894 va fugir de Lió i des de Marsella va embarcar-se a Algèria, però va ser detingut i transferit a Marsella el juny de 1894. Instal·lat a Marsella a partir de 1895, va passar dos anys a la presó per una nova condemna de la qual no va poder fugir. Alliberat el setembre de 1897, va marxar a Londres, on va treballar de rentaplats en un restaurant. L'abril de 1898 es va instal·lar a Marsella, després de passar per Jarnac. Va albergar la militant anarquista catalana Salut Borràs Saperas (1878-1954) --vídua de Lluís Mas, afusellat a Montjuïc (Barcelona) el 1897, i filla de l'internacionalista anarquista Martí Borràs-- i sos dos infants, i amb qui s'unirà més tard sentimentalment; també va albergar un temps Jean Marestan. Fins al març de 1899 va participar en totes les activitats anarquistes dels grups de Marsella i es va especialitzar en cantar cançons anarquistes en festes familiars i de companyó. Entre març i juny de 1898 va participar en la redacció de Le Libertaire instal·lat aleshores a Marsella. En aquesta època va col·laborar en diversos periòdics, com ara Le Cri de révolte, fundat per G. A. Bordes, i Le Journal du Peuple, fundat per Sébastine Faure. En 1899 es va instal·lar al barri parisenc de la Goutte d'Or. A partir de 1901 es va instal·lar a Angulema on va fer feina de representant d'un fabricant de conyac. Després va marxar de bell nou a Catalunya, on es va casar amb Salut Borràs i on va romandre fins al 1909, quan va emigrar a Mèxic sota el pseudònim de Souvarine. Al país asteca va col·laborar en el moviment revolucionari i en 1915 va participar en la revista Ariete, òrgan de la «Casa del Obrero Mundial». Entre gener i setembre de 1915 va ser secretari d'un coronel de l'exèrcit d'Emiliano Zapata. El 10 d'octubre de 1915 va participar en la inauguració de l'Escola Racionalista de Mèxic, segons el model de Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia, i el novembre, amb Rafael Quintero, Agustín Aragón, L. Camacho Escamilla i altres, va fundar l'«Ateneo Ciencia, Luz y Verdad». En 1916, com a delegat de la «Casa del Obrero Mundial» i del sindicat dels terrelloners mexicans, va realitzar una gira de conferències a França sobre la Revolució mexicana i va escriure nombrosos articles sobre el tema, especialment al periòdic Ce qu'il faut dire, de Sébastien Faure, realitzant també un monogràfic sobre el president mexicà Carranza en el periòdic Les Hommes du jour. El 12 d'agost de 1916 va ser un dels oradors, juntament amb Sébastien Faure, Lepetit i Schneider, en el funeral de Pierre Martin al cementiri parisenc de Père-Lachaise. L'octubre de 1916 va retornar a Mèxic. Octave Jahn va morir el 9 de juny de 1917 a Ciutat de Mèxic (Mèxic).

Eugène Bigel a Caiena

Eugène Bigel a Caiena

- Pierre Bigel: El 10 de febrer de 1872 neix al XIX Districte de París (França) l'anarquista, partidari de l'acció directa, Pierre Eugène Bigel. Sos pares es deien Michel Bigel i Élisa Geoffroy. Fill d'una família obrera benestant, estudià a l'institut de Charleville (Xampanya-Ardenes, França) fins als 12 anys i una de ses germanes freqüentà l'Escola Normal d'aquesta població. Son temperament exaltat va fer que deixés els estudis i es posà a treballar d'antuvi com a aprenent d'ajustador a la fàbrica «Dupont & Fould» d'Apremont-sur-Aire (Xampanya-Ardenes, França), on destacà per la seva violència. Després va fer feina en diversos establiments de Charleville, entre ells «Périn Frères» i «Demangel», abans de treballar, a partir de 1891, a Revin (Xampanya-Ardenes, França). Després de diversos informes policíacs, sembla que la seva conducta va ser bona, però el seu natural romangué violent. Gràcies als seus companys de feina, especialment Henri Chuillot i Clovis Bourgeois que li donaren a llegir publicacions, entrà a formar part del moviment anarquista, decantant-se per la «propaganda pel fet» com a única solució per intimidar la patronal i posar fi a les vagues que havien esclatat a les fàbriques «Faure» de Revin, vagues que es perllongaren durant els mesos d'hivern de 1890 i 1891. Participà en aquestes vagues i l'1 de maig de 1891, amb son company de taller Clovis Bourgeois, intentà per tres indrets diferents calar foc els boscos de Revin. L'estiu d'aquell any fou l'autor dels atemptats amb dinamita que es realitzaren a Charleville, fent explotar durant la nit del 21 al 22 de juny alguns cartutxos de dinamita a la gendarmeria i posant, durant la nit del 15 al 16 de juliol, un aparell explosiu a les finestres de l'industrial Deville de Charleville, enginy que no esclatà. Els cartutxos, que restaren intactes, estaven embalats en un catàleg on la germana de Bigel havia escrit el seu nom, fet que va permetre la policia identificar-ne immediatament l'autor. El 17 de juliol de 1891 va ser detingut i arran de la seva declaració van ser detinguts els seus còmplices i, de rebot, alguns socialistes de la vall del Mosa. També fou un dels autors de l'explosió que tingué lloc la nit de l'11 al 12 de juny de 1891 als soterranis de la gendarmeria de Revin. L'11 de novembre de 1891 l'Audiència de les Ardenes el condemnà per «destrucció amb dinamita d'edificis públics» a set anys de treballs forçats i a 10 anys de prohibició domiciliària. Malalt a la Prefectura Central de Melun (Illa de França, França), on va ser sovint ficat en una masmorra, en 1894 retornà a les Ardenes per ser jutjat novament pels incendis de l'1 de maig de 1891 i el 23 de novembre de 1894 va ser condemnat per l'Audiència de les Ardenes a 12 anys de treballs forçats i a 10 anys de prohibició domiciliària per aquests incendis –Clovis Bourgeois i Désiré Badré van ser condemnats a la mateixa pena, mentre que Joseph Badré, Ernest Laheurte i Joseph Blin van ser absolts. Pierre Bigel va ser deportat a la colònia penitenciària de les Illes de la Salvació (Caiena, Guaiana Francesa), sota la matrícula 26.844, on morí pocs mesos després, l'11 de novembre de 1895.

Giuseppe Pasotti

Giuseppe Pasotti

- Giuseppe Pasotti: El 10 de febrer de 1888 neix a Conselice (Romanya, Itàlia) el militant anarquista, anarcosindicalista i antimilitarista Giuseppe Pasotti. Fill d'una família que havia participat en les lluites republicanes i anticlericals als Estats Pontificis: l'avi fou republicà i son pare i son germà Romolo socialistes. Giuseppe Pasotti des de molt jove milità en el moviment anarcosindicalista i en 1911 fou condemnat a tres mesos de presó per haver impedit fer feina uns esquirols. Com a fervent antimilitarista, fou un dels animadors en 1914 de la «Setmana Roja». En 1915 fou detingut per la seva participació en les manifestacions contra la guerra i per incitar els joves a la deserció. En 1916 s'instal·là a Milà on s'adherí a la secció local de l'anarcosindicalista Unió Sindical Italiana (USI) i l'any següent fou perseguit per un delicte de premsa. El 18 de gener de 1918 fou condemnat pel Tribunal Militar de Milà per «incitació a la desobediència i a la deserció» i tancat a la fortalesa d'Aosta fins al final de la guerra. Durant la seva detenció, sa companya, Maria Bernardi, va morir de grip espanyola. En 1920, en qualitat d'obrer mecànic, esdevingué secretari sindical a la casa Alfa-Romeo de Milà. Quan esclataren a Itàlia els moviments populars inspirats en la Revolució russa fou un dels capdavanters, però no s'adherí a la III Internacional i sempre restà fidel al pensament anarquista. Més tard, s'oposarà radicalment al feixisme i en 1924 va haver de fugir de Milà, escapant pels pèls de la repressió engegada pels escamots d'Italo Balbo. En tornar a la regió milanesa, començà a treballar com a muntador mecànic en una empresa de Malnate, a prop de Varese, feina que li permetia viatjar a través del país i mantenir contacte amb els companys llibertaris d'arreu. Però els disturbis sorgits arran de l'execució de Sacco i de Vanzetti l'assenyalaren de bell nou a les autoritats feixistes. Obligat a amagar-se, emigrà clandestinament a França en 1929, instal·lant-se d'antuvi a París. En 1930, després de treballar uns mesos a Alemanya aprenent l'ús dels motors diesel, s'instal·là amb sa nova companya, Maria Linari, a Tolosa de Llenguadoc, on reprengué les seves activitats llibertàries. En aquesta ciutat freqüentà la llibreria del professor antifeixista italià Silvio Trentin, lloc de reunió dels emigrats italians de la regió. En aquesta època exercí de corresponsal dels periòdics anarquistes L'Adunata dei Refrattari, que apareixia als EUA, i Il Risveglio Anarchico, de Ginebra. El maig de 1932, a Perpinyà, centralitzà, com a president de la Liga Italiana dei Diritti dell' Uomo (LIDU, Lliga Italiana dels Drets de l'Home) de la regió, les activitats antifeixistes d'aquesta zona de l'Estat francès. Dirigí una pensió, al número 3 del carrer Duchalmeau, que albergà nombrosos companys. En 1935, juntament amb Raniero Cecili, Ernesto Bonomini, Leonida Mastrodicasa, Luigi Daminai i nombrosos antifeixistes italians, li fou incoat un expedient d'expulsió, però aquesta mesura fou prorrogada, perquè el 31 de maig de 1936 participà a Chambéry en el Congrés de la LIDU. A partir de juliol de 1936 i fins al final de la guerra, va fer d'intermediari entre el moviment llibertari espanyol --fou cap de l'Oficina d'Investigacions Polítiques de la Federació Anarquista Ibèrica (FAI)-- i els companys italians que partien cap a la Península a combatre. El seu domicili, al carrer Grande-la-Réal, esdevingué el centre d'organització i de pas dels voluntaris italians (Centrone, Girotti, Bilfolchi, Perrone, Bonomini, etc.) que marxaren a Catalunya. També s'allotjà a casa seva Carlo Rosselli, que més tard fou assassinat per un escamot de La Cagoule --sobrenom de la feixista Organització Secreta d'Acció Revolucionària Nacional (OSARN)--; el filòsof llibertari Camillo Berneri, que serà assassinat pels estalinistes a Barcelona durant els Fets de Maig de 1937; el periodista Luigi Campolonghi, membre actiu de la LIDU; i altres. El novembre de 1936 la policia el considerà com un dels principals activistes del moviment llibertari dels Pirineus Orientals. En aquests anys fou membre del grup de Perpinyà de la Federació Anarquista del Midi, que segons informes policíacs comptava 25 membres, 21 dels quals eren estrangers (espanyols i italians), i que tenia la seva seu al domicili de Louis Montgon (Vérité), al número 13 del carrer Émile Boix. Portà una lluita acarnissada contra el representant consular italià que residia a Portvendres, que era el centre de les conxorxes franquistes a Perpinyà, fins a la seva declaració com a persona non grata per les autoritats franceses i la seva expulsió. Arran d'un atemptat comès l'11 de març de 1937 contra el tren Marsella-Portbou, fou detingut amb l'anarquista espanyol Melchor Escobar y Moliner i implicat en el robatori de correspondència d'unes cartes dirigides a militants franquistes en un hotel de la ciutat; i el 2 de juny de 1937 fou condemnat a tres mesos de presó per «violació de correspondència» pel tribunal de Perpinyà, malgrat que la LIDU havia encarregat la seva defensa als prestigiosos advocats Louis Noguères i Léon-Jean Grégory. El 19 d'agost de 1937 fou emesa una ordre d'expulsió i, buscat per la policia, es refugià a Marsella. El 19 de setembre fou novament detingut per «infracció a l'ordre d'expulsió» i, després d'un breu tancament, s'amagà durant unes setmanes al domicili de Louis Montgon, a Haut-Vernet. Continuà, però, entrant regularment a la Península i participant en l'organització de l'ajuda entre París, Marsella, Niça i Espanya. A la primavera de 1938, gràcies al suport dels anarquistes marsellesos, aconseguí arribar a Tunísia, on reprengué les activitats polítiques i organitzà un grup anarquista en col·laboració amb el periodista i escriptor llibertari Luigi Damiani, hereu àcrata d'Errico Malatesta, que havia freqüentat Milà durant els anys vint i també Tolosa. El 5 d'abril de 1939, arran d'un atemptat contra una empresa feixista, fou detingut com a presumpte còmplice, però aviat fou amollat. En 1943, després de la invasió de Tunísia per les tropes de l'Eix, passà a Algèria. Encara que antimilitarista, s'enrolà, malgrat els seus 55 anys i la mala salut, en les forces francobritàniques, però sense portar armes, per la qual cosa fou nomenat intendent i cuiner del grup de voluntaris italians. En acabar la guerra, tornà a Itàlia i a partir de 1946 militarà en el grup de la Federació Anarquista Italiana (FAI) de Villadossola. En el II Congrés de la FAI tingut a Bolonya entre el 16 i el 20 de març de 1947 assistí com a delegat dels grups de la Vall d'Aosta. Encarregat de reorganitzar els moviment llibertari a la zona de Ferrara, a començaments de 1948 s'instal·là a Pontelagoscuro, però, decebut per la situació política que prenia el seu país gens revolucionària --«Compromís Històric» entre el Partit Comunista Italià (PCI) i la Democràcia Cristiana--, retornà a Tunísia. Giuseppe Pasotti va morir el 21 d'abril de 1951 a Tunísia.

Giuseppe Guelfi

Giuseppe Guelfi

- Giuseppe Guelfi: El 10 de febrer de 1894 neix a Niça (País Niçard, Provença, Occitània) l'anarquista Giuseppe Guelfi, que va fer servir nombrosos pseudònims (Juan Torres Gouvece, Elia Ascenzi, Juan Casedemunt, José Juifrut, Giuseppe Martinelli, Luigi Contri, Umberto Fei, etc.). Sos pares es deien Oreste Guelfi i Ernestina Babbini. Passà la seva adolescència a Massa (Tosca, Itàlia), ciutat originària de sos pares, on s'acostà al moviment anarquista. Es guanyà la vida com a pintor decorador i mecànic. En 1914 va ser cridat a files i participà en la Gran Guerra com a soldat de cavalleria. Involucrat en delictes contra la propietat i condemnat per deserció militar, en 1921 s'exilià a França. Expulsat en 1928, va ser localitzat a Savona (Ligúria) i detingut. Després de complir tres anys de reclusió militar a Gaeta (Laci, Itàlia), s'expatrià novament. A França desenvolupà una intensa tasca subversiva, fent servir els seus nombrosos pseudònims, i va ser buscat per la mort de dos gendarmes. La policia i les autoritats consulars el localitzaren en diferents indrets, com ara Suïssa, Bèlgica, Països Baixos, Portugal i Espanya. El gener de 1932 participà en la revolta de l'Alt Llobregat (Catalunya) i aquest any va ser empresonat a Barcelona (Catalunya) juntament amb altres anarquistes italians, com ara Egidio Bernardini, Pietro Bruzzi, Luigi Sofrà, Burno Toccafondi i Nicola Turcinovic. El 27 de juliol d'aquell any va ser inclòs en el «Butlletí de recerca» de la policia. En el número de març de 1933 de la revista anarquista de San Francisco (Califòrnia, EUA) Man!, publicà una carta («Restles Spain»), expedida des de la presó de Barcelona al periòdic L'Adunata dei Refrattari, on explicava la revolució anarquista de gener d'aquell any. Ben conegut en els cercles dels exiliats polítics, col·laborà en el periòdic anarcosindicalista català Solidaridad Obrera. En 1934 el trobem oficialment al servei de la policia, desenvolupant la seva tasca d'informador presentant detallats informes sobre les activitats conspiradores tant a Itàlia com a l'estranger. La policia l'encarregà la desarticulació d'un comitè nacional d'agitació anarquista a Liorna (Toscana, Itàlia), sorgit del Comitè d'Agitació Antifeixista de Montreuil (Illa de França, França). El juny de 1934, després de la seva denúncia, 23 escorcolls simultanis de domicilis de companys anarquistes, tots amics d'Augusto Consani, es desencadenaren, però tots donaren resultats negatius. També fallà l'intent de l'Organizzazione per la Vigilanza e la Repressione dell'Antifascismo (OVRA, Organització per la Vigilància i la Repressió de l'Antifeixisme) d'introduir-se, fent servir el nom de Paolo Schicchi, en la correspondència del Socors Anarquista Internacional (SAI). La seva següent missió fou enviar informes sobre els confinats polítics de l'illa de Ponça, intentant, sense èxit, recollir les confidències, entre d'altres, del periodista anarquista Vincenzo Capuana, que acabava d'arribar de Nova York (Nova York, EUA). Després va ser traslladat a altres colònies penitenciàries (Ustica, Fonni, Tremiti, Lampedusa, Favignana i Ventotene) i a les presons de Nàpols i Trapani, enviant informes, vertaders o falsos, sobre els projectes insurreccionals dels investigats. Perduda tota la seva credibilitat com a delator davant les autoritats, intentà desesperadament fugir del confinament. Giuseppe Guelfi va morir el 14 de maig de 1940 a l'Hospital Pace de Nàpols (Campània, Itàlia).

Alberto Vecín Gómez [militants-anarchistes.info]

- Alberto Vecín Gómez: El 10 de febrer de 1906 neix a La Faba (Vega de Valcarce, Lleó, Castella, Espanya) l'anarcosindicalista Alberto Vecín Gómez, també conegut com Capitán Gallego i Cesareo Gancedo Gómez. Quan esclatà la Revolució espanyola fou responsable del XII Centúria de la Columna «Roja i Negra» al front d'Aragó (Espanya). Després de la militarització de les milícies la columna esdevingué 127 Brigada Mixta de l'Exèrcit Popular de la II República espanyola i va ser nomenat capità d'una de les seves companyies. Durant la guerra, per evitar represàlies contra sa família, restà a Lleó i canvià son nom pel de Cesareo Gancedo Gómez. Després del conflicte bèl·lic treballà de paleta i patí diversos consell de guerra, però, sembla, que les autoritats franquistes no descobriren la seva veritable identitat. Fins a la mort del dictador Francisco Franco suportà nombrosos controls, vigilàncies i persecucions, sense mai no renunciar als seus ideals llibertaris. Alberto Vecín Gómez va morir el 4 de desembre de 1993 a Lleó (Castella, Espanya).

Alex Comfort fotografiat per Vernon Richards en 1946

- Alex Comfort: El 10 de febrer de 1920 neix al barri d'Edmonton (Middlesex, Londres, Anglaterra) i l'investigador científic, metge, sexòleg, gerontòleg, psiquiatra, novel·lista, dramaturg, poeta, pacifista, objector de consciència i anarquista Alexander Comfort. Era l'únic fill d'Alexander Charles Comfort, funcionari d'educació, i de Daisy Elizabeth Fenner, professora de llengües modernes. Amb 14 anys, mentre feia experiments per millorar la fórmula de la pólvora a l'Escola Highgate de Londres, una explosió li volà la mà esquerra i només li deixà el polze –posteriorment afirmà que d'aquesta manera la mà esquerra li resultava molt útil per a les «exploracions uterines». En 1938, quan encara estudiava en aquesta escola, va publicar el seu primer llibre, The Silver River. Being the diary of a schoolboy in the South Atlantic (1936), relat d'un viatge que havia fet dos anys abans amb son pare a l'Argentina i al Senegal. Abandonà l'escola i sa mare, aleshores retirada, l'educà a casa. Posteriorment estudià medicina al Trinity College de la Universitat de Cambridge (Cambridgeshire, Anglaterra), a l'Hospital de Londres (actual Royal London Hospital) i a diverses institucions acadèmiques (Col·legi Reial de Metges, Col·legi Reial de Cirurgians, etc.), arreplegant sis graus de diverses disciplines (medicina, cirurgia, bioquímica, psiquiatria, etc.). Després de treballar com a metge resident a l'Hospital de Londres, esdevingué professor de fisiologia al Col·legi de Medicina de l'Hospital de Londres. En 1945 es diplomà en salut infantil i realitzà doctorats en 1950 i en 1963 al Col·legi Universitari de Londres. En 1943 es casà amb Ruth Muriel Harris i en 1946 tingué son únic fill, Nicholas. Entre 1943 i 1944 edità, amb John Clifford Bayliss, la revista New Road. New directions in european art and letters. Anarquista, antimilitarista i pacifista, malgrat la seva mutilació a la mà que li impedia anar al front, es declarà objector de consciència i el 2 d'abril de 1943, en plena II Guerra Mundial, va enviar una carta a la revista Tribune denunciant els bombardeigs aliats indiscriminats contra la població civil alemanya. Fou membre destacat de la Peace Pledge Union (PPU, Unió per la Promesa de Pau) i de la Campanya pel Desarmament Nuclear. En aquesta època publicà nombrosos textos anarquistes, com ara Peace and disobedience (1946); On this side nothing (1949), fortament influenciat per Albert Camus, autor a qui admirava; i Authority and delinquency in the modern state. A criminological approach to the problem of power (1950). Sota el pseudònim Obadiah Hornbrooke, intercanvià una correspondència pública i agre polèmica en defensa del pacifisme amb George Orwell, qui el va qualificar de «profeixista». Entrà a formar part del cercle intel·lectual editor (Marie Louise Berneri, Nicholas Walter, Herbert Read, Vernon Richards, George Woodcok, etc.) del periòdic anarquista Freedom. En 1948 Freedom Press li va publicar el llibre Barbarism and sexual freedom. Lectures on the sociology of sex from the standpoint of anarchism, basat en un cicle de conferències que realitzà al London Anarquist Group (LAG, Grup Anarquista de Londres). En 1951 signà la «Authors World Peace Appeal» (AWPA, Crida dels Autors per la Pau Mundial), però més tard renuncià al seu comitè al·legant que l'AWPA estava controlada per incondicionals soviètics. Posteriorment en aquesta dècada va fer costat el «Comitè d'Acció Directa contra la Guerra Nuclear» i el «Comitè dels 100», format per destacats intel·lectuals. Durant la Pasqua de 1958 participa en la primera marxa antinuclear que recorregué 83 quilòmetres entre Londres i Aldermaston (Berkshire, Anglaterra). El setembre de 1961 va ser empresonat un mes amb altres companys, entre ells Bertrand Russell, per incitació a la desobediència civil durant una important protesta a la plaça de Trafalgar de Londres. En 1962 va escriure la cançó protesta One man's hands, que va ser musicada i cantada per Pete Seeger, i aquest mateix any publicà el fullet de cançons pacifistes Are you sitting comfortably? The Alex Comfort song book. El número 33 (novembre de 1963) de la revista Anarchy li dedicà un monogràfic. Durant la dècada dels cinquanta i dels seixanta s'especialitzà en biogerontologia i (biologia de l'envelliment) i en biomedicina gerontològica (prolongació mèdica de la vida humana) i dedicà molts d'esforços a la seva divulgació, formant part del Club for Ageing (Club de l'Envelliment), creat en 1947, i de la British Society for Research on Ageing (BSRA, Societat Britànica per a la Recerca sobre l'Envelliment). En 1964, arran d'un viatge a l'Índia dos anys abans, publicà la seva traducció del sànscrit del tractat d'erotologia clàssica medieval Koka Shastra i en 1968, quan es trobava en una reunió científica a Txecoslovàquia, pogué assistir a la «Primavera de Praga». En 1969 se li atorgà el Premi Karger de Medicina. En 1972 publicà la seva obra més coneguda The joy of sex. A gourmet guide to lovemaking, manual de sexologia que va escriure en dues setmanes i autèntic best-seller traduït a multitud de llengües i amb el qual guanyà tres milions de dòlars pels 12 milions d'exemplars venuts; però no estava satisfet de ser conegut com Dr. Sex i que les seves altres obres fossin desconegudes. Després de la publicació d'aquesta obra, es divorcià de Ruth Harris i mesos després, en 1973, es casà amb l'economista Jane Tristram Henderson, la millor amiga de la seva exesposa amb qui mantenia un romanç des de feia una dècada –les famoses, i agosarades, 84 il·lustracions de The joy of sex es basaven en instantànies polaroids que els amants s'havien autofotografiat. El Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions (CSDI, Centre per a l'Estudi de les Institucions Democràtiques) li donà una feina i la parella es traslladà a Santa Bàrbara (Califòrnia, EUA), on el citat thik tank liberal tenia la seu. Entre 1974 i 1983 fou conferenciant en el Departament de Psiquiatria de la Universitat Stanford (Palo Alto, Califòrnia, EUA) i també va ser professor en l'Institut de Neuropsiquiatria de la Universitat de Califòrnia a Santa Bàrbara. En aquesta època la parella era assídua del Sandstone Retreat, al Sandstone Ranch, a les muntanyes de Santa Mònica (Califòrnia, EUA), comunitat naturista de sexualitat lliure i d'intercanvi de parelles. Amb el temps, però, Jane Henderson es cansà de l'amor lliure i, després de durs plets amb el CSDI, que el denuncià per incompliment de contracte, en 1985 la parella retornà a Anglaterra i s'instal·là al comtat de Kent. En 1989 publicà una carta en The Guardian contra la imposició de l'impost regressiu (Poll Tax) i la política econòmica del govern presidit per Margaret Thatcher. En 1991 patí una hemorràgia cerebral severa i a partir d'aquest moment son fill Nicholas actuà com a gerent i administrador dels seus interessos econòmics. Aquell mateix any Jane Henderson morí d'una hemorràgia.

Nascut el 21 d'agost de 1752 a Pranzac (Llemosí, Occitània), aquest capellà roig, era vicari de Saint-Nicolas-des-Champs de París, despietat i a vegades cruel, serà un precursor del socialisme i de l'anarquisme moderns. No va tenir prou a denunciar els revolucionaris acaparadors, els especuladors i els mercaders, les seves diatribes tingueren com a objectiu el govern i tot l'aparell de l'Estat parlamentari, així com diversos representants de l'autoritat. És l'autor del cèlebre Manifeste des Enragés (Manifest dels Enrabiats) que van signar Varlet i Leclerc d'Oze. Partidari de l'acció directa, va esperonar els pillatges de magatzems. Va ser el portaveu dels més pobres dels sans-culottes, incitant les dones a reivindicar els seus drets. El Manifeste des Enragés serà la causa de la seva caiguda. La Convenció es va sentir atacada i va detenir Jacques Roux el 22 d'agost de 1793, amb la intenció de guillotinar-lo, a través del tribunal revolucionari. La repressió s'abatrà tot d'una entre els seus partidaris, i el Club des Femmes, suport dels enragés, serà dissolt.

Cuts to Regulation Are Bringing Back Jobs

The points below are from an analysis of the SOTU speech

Compared to previous speeches, President Donald Trump did not outline new regulatory reform goals. However, he did briefly note that the “administration has cut more regulations in a short time than any other administration during its entire tenure.”

As a result, he added, “Companies are coming back to our country in large numbers.”

The administration has indeed taken important steps to rein in agencies’ rulemaking. It issued 65 percent fewer “economically significant” rules—those with costs to the private sector that exceed $100 million a year—than the Obama administration, and 51 percent fewer than the Bush administration, after 22 months in office.

The White House is also pursuing rollbacks of the Obama administration’s costliest and unwarranted rules. But regulatory repeal is a laborious process that may take years—especially given the never-ending legal challenges pursued by regulatory proponents.

The No. 1 thing the administration must do is stop internet regulation. Further innovation is key to economic growth and national security, and both will be stymied if the statists get a regulatory foothold. If Trump pursues no other regulatory reform, preventing internet regulations would be enough.

The second priority would be to demand that any new regulatory statute has a hard expiration deadline. That’s needed to halt the cumulative regulatory burden and force agencies (and Congress) to review the necessity for regulations.

The White House cannot accomplish all the necessary reforms unilaterally. Congress must do much more to eliminate unnecessary regulation and curtail agency overreach.

Congress could do a great deal more to advance reform by exercising a bit of political will, including eliminating funding for regulatory programs that lack actual statutory authority or those that have failed to achieve the intended results. Lawmakers must also institute expiration dates for funding of regulatory initiatives to reduce the cumulative burden of regulation.

The 50-member staff of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs who review agency rulemaking is badly outnumbered by the hundreds of thousands of regulators who labor daily crafting rules. Congress should expand the resources of the office to improve regulatory oversight, as well as assert more of its own authority over runaway regulation.

FTC is helping China and shafting Americans

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Federal Trade Commission to immediately settle a lawsuit against Qualcomm over the collection of agreed upon fees for use of its intellectual property:

“It is ironic that the Trump Administration has staked out the protection of intellectual property as a primary concern in our trade relations with China, yet, the Federal Trade Commission is suing San Diego based Qualcomm to break its licensing agreements for intellectual property that Apple has tired of paying for, even though they continue to benefit from that technology.  It is shocking however, that the FTC has used the Chinese megafirm Huawei as one of its key witnesses opposing Qualcomm’s licenses.  Apparently, the FTC does not realize or care that the licensing agreements for past technological innovations are what pays for Qualcomm’s research in creating the chips for the 5G future, and that Huawei is their number one competitor.  The FTC suit would effectively cripple the only U.S. company who is competing in developing the Internet of Things to the lasting detriment of the interests of the United States.

“While the FTC is an independent government body, their case is a disaster for American interests and they need to settle it now before more harm is done.  Policy makers from across the political spectrum need to understand that the race for the future of the connected world is at stake and Chinese control of every aspect of the Internet of Things is extremely dangerous.  All Qualcomm seems to be asking is that they be allowed to collect fees which were agreed upon by business partners which wanted to use innovations which they developed.  This is the essence of intellectual property. It is also how U.S. businesses should run, relying upon their own ingenuity and productivity to profit rather than relying upon government handouts and lawfare.

“The FTC is reportedly in long overdue settlement talks with Qualcomm.  The FTC should settle this lawsuit immediately and end its attack on the only company positioned to prevent the Chinese from running roughshod over the Internet of the future.”

How Trump can curb government over-reach

Families and small businesses would benefit from transparency by federal regulators

Our nation alone was founded on the proposition that We the People should govern ourselves. That is why conservatives object to unelected bureaucrats enacting rules without the consent of the people. Fortunately, with the simple stroke of a pen, President Trump has the ability to restore power to citizens and make the regulatory morass less economically burdensome.

By signing an executive order to force federal agencies to be transparent with their studies and data, he could add to his excellent deregulatory legacy and unshackle manufacturers and industries so they can contribute more to our nation’s economic growth.

The cost of federal regulations is obnoxiously high and directly impacts the pocketbooks of all Americans to the tune of almost $2 trillion a year — nearly a tenth of America’s gross domestic product. The highly respected Mercatus Center has shown that these costs also result in a massive drag on economic growth, further harming jobs and families.

Huge drivers of these costs are bad rules based on questionable — and concealed — evidence. Unsound or unreproducible scientific research hidden from policymakers, the public and scientific peers has been used by regulators with personal agendas to promulgate unsupported environmental and other rules that harm the economy and impede progress.

Members of both parties agree: Better government is built on sound and open data. This is one way to empower citizens and ensure that new rules meet their needs without unnecessary costs.

A bipartisan Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking (CEP) was formed to implement a bipartisan bill increasing policymakers’ access to data. And Mr. Trump — who has implemented far-reaching regulatory reform efforts — has also weighed in on data transparency with an executive order requiring agencies to identify existing regulations that “rely in whole or in part on data, information, or methods that are not publicly available or that are insufficiently transparent to meet the standard of reproducibility.”

But to ensure truly responsible and transparent standards for all regulation, we need access to scientific data for newly proposed regulations as well as for those regulations not yet finalized. That’s why the American Conservative Union is leading an effort — supported by many other conservative organizations and business groups — seeking a further executive order to provide for CLEAR Data — which stands for “Clarifying the Law on Evidentiary Access for Regulation.”

If Congress is too slow to restore citizen government to promote innovation and individual freedom, the president should use his authority through executive order. It is abundantly clear that Democrats in the House are not willing to work with this president. So with the stroke of a pen, the president could make transparency uniform across government.

A piecemeal approach with each agency pursuing its own agenda would produce terrible results. An even worse outcome is certain if career bureaucrats are allowed to work in secret to keep their pet regulations hidden from an agency process intended to address CLEAR Data initiatives.

The executive order should apply to scientific data key accountability principles included in CEP’s recommendations:

Transparency. CEP concluded: “Those engaged in generating and using data and evidence should (provide) meaningful channels for public input and comment and ensure that evidence produced is made publicly available.” Our proposed effort would call for data used to justify regulation to be identified and made sufficiently available to test, authenticate and reproduce the findings. And, importantly, it should apply to all regulations currently in the pipeline and under review.

Rigor. “Evidence should be developed using well-designed and well-implemented methods tailored to the questions being asked.” We would call for science-based regulation to be based on peer-reviewed studies — the standard in probity and reliability.

Privacy. “Individual privacy and confidentiality must be respected in the generation and use of data and evidence.” We want to ensure that agencies avoid unauthorized disclosure of personal data and trade secrets while allowing other researchers to judge the validity of the conclusions evidence is cited to support.

Humility. CEP suggested that “Care should be taken not to over-generalize from findings that may be specific to a particular study or context.” The ultimate form of humility is accountability — best advanced through an executive order whose provisions on disclosure of research and underlying data.

We couldn’t agree more with the commission’s exhortation: “Whether deciding on funding allocations (or) assessing proposed regulations evidence should play an important role in key decisions made by government officials . to make sure our government’s decision-making process is among the best in the world.”

In other words: To ensure better decision-making and more accountable regulation — at a time when the economic stakes couldn’t be higher for small businesses and working families — we need CLEAR Data that is fully disclosed, high-quality and reproducible, with means in place to protect privacy.

92,000 Federal Bureaucrats Earn More Than...

Democrats want raises for all government workers. But do they already make too much? 

The House voted recently to provide a 2.6% across-the-board pay raise for federal workers. Speaking in favor of the legislation, Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-VA) argued, “Our federal civil servants are like any other workforce. More than 900,000 of those federal employees earn less than $60,000 a year. They are not rich. They are not living high on the hog. They deserve and need this adjustment, especially after the longest, most reckless shutdown of the government in American history.”

What Connolly said of federal workers is often true. But it’s also often not. Pushing back against Connolly’s assertion, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) noted the obvious irony: “Think about what this bill says. All of those hard-working taxpayers in the private sector, hey, you are already making less, but now you are going to have more of your tax dollars go to pay people — who are already making more money than you — to get a raise. How is that fair?”

Backing Jordan’s argument are last year’s federal workers’ salary numbers, provided by the Congressional Research Service. One statistic that is quite illuminating shows that 92,000 federal bureaucrats earn as much of more than the governor of the state where they work. For example, 1,000 clerical workers in Alabama made $120,000 in salary; in Ohio, 333 made nearly $149,000; in Maryland 3,561 made at least $170,000. And the list goes on.

Adam Andrzejewski, CEO and founder of the government accountability website OpenTheBooks.com, pointedly asks, “When public affairs staffers in Alabama are out-earning their governor, it’s time for Congress to hold hearings regarding the proper pay levels for federal employees. How can [thousands of] general administrators, clerks and office service staffers make as much as a governor?”

The House voted 259-161 in approving the salary raises, with 29 Republicans siding with every Democrat.

San Francisco’s Liberal Policies Have Made It a Slum

San Francisco is one of the richest cities it the world. It’s given us music, technology, and elegant architecture. Now it gives us filthy homeless encampments.

One urban planner told me, “I just returned from the Tenderloin [a section of San Francisco]. It’s worse than slums of India, Haiti, Africa!”

So I went to San Francisco to make a video about that. I’ve never seen slums in Africa, but I’ve seen them in Haiti and India.

What I saw in San Francisco looked similar. As one local resident put it, “There’s s— everywhere. It’s just a mess out here.”

There’s also lots of mental illness. One man told us, “Vampires are real. I’m paranoid as hell.” San Francisco authorities mostly leave the mentally ill to fend for themselves on the street.

Other vagrants complain about them. “They make it bad for people like us that hang out with a sign,” one beggar told us.

San Francisco is a pretty good place to “hang out with a sign.” People are rarely arrested for vagrancy, aggressive panhandling, or going to the bathroom in front of people’s homes. In 2015, there were 60,491 complaints to police, but only 125 people were arrested.

Public drug use is generally ignored. One woman told us, “It’s nasty seeing people shoot up—right in front of you. Police don’t do anything about it! They’ll get somebody for drinking a beer but walk right past people using needles.”

Each day in San Francisco, an average of 85 cars are broken into.  “Inside Edition” ran a test to see how long stereo equipment would last in a parked car. Its test car was quickly broken into. Then the camera crew discovered that its own car had been busted into as well.

Some store owners hire private police to protect their stores. But San Francisco’s police union has complained about the competition. Now there are only a dozen private cops left, and street people dominate neighborhoods.

We followed one private cop, who asked street people, “Do you need any type of homeless outreach services?” Most say no. “They love the freedom of not having to follow the rules,” said the cop.

And San Francisco is generous. It offers street people food stamps, free shelter, train tickets, and $70 a month in cash.  “They’re always offering resources,” one man dressed as Santa told us. “San Francisco’s just a good place to hang out.” So every week, new people arrive.

Some residents want the city to get tougher with people living on the streets. “Get them to the point where they have to make a decision between jail and rehab,” one told us. “Other cities do it, but for some reason, San Francisco doesn’t have the political will.”

For decades, San Francisco’s politicians promised to fix the homeless problem. When Sen. Dianne Feinstein was mayor, she proudly announced that she was putting the homeless in hotels: “A thousand units, right here in the Tenderloin!”

When California Gov. Gavin Newsom was mayor of San Francisco, he bragged, “We have already moved 6,860 human beings.” Last year, former Mayor Mark Farrell said, “We need to fund programs like Homeward Bound.”

But the extra funding hasn’t worked. One reason is that even if someone did want to get off the street and rent an apartment, there aren’t many available.

San Francisco is filled with two- and three-story buildings, and in most neighborhoods, putting up a taller building is illegal. Even where zoning laws allow it, California regulations make construction so difficult that many builders won’t even try.

For years, developer John Dennis has been trying to convert an old meatpacking plant into an apartment building—but it has taken him four years just to get permission to build.

“And all that time, we’re paying property taxes and paying for maintenance,” says Dennis. “I will do no more projects in San Francisco.”

People in San Francisco often claim to be concerned about helping the poor. But their many laws make life much tougher for the poor.

  • Abe Chen, Byton VP Of Security, On The Importance Of Security In Early Design Stages — #CleanTechnica Interview

    I asked why not more automotive companies embrace open source. Abe feels the biggest problem is their lack of understanding of the licensing process. Open source is about taking and giving back. That can be daunting for many focused on bottom line return on investment (ROI). Mostly, certain carmakers feel more comfortable with an off-the-shelf product with a straightforward support system. Unfortunately, that is an expensive solution for the consumer. To do a good job, a mobility company needs to dedicate an entire team to open source.

    How Open Source Can Make Mobility More Efficient & Lower Costs

    Asked about Byton’s security philosophy, Abe feels most in the automotive industry rely on IT scripting and applies it to the auto industry. From his personal experience, it can’t always work well. It has to be part of a core, in-house automotive security foundation that is developed from a mobility standpoint. He used the analogy of how it’s one thing to hack into a phone or computer and lose data. It’s another thing when it comes to a car and human lives are at stake. Automotive security has to be part of the original design and not an afterthought. There is no such thing as 100% security, but you can put into place compensating technologies as well as redundant systems to come as close as possible to that.

  • Yosemite X announces first open-source public blockchain without native cryptocurrency

    Businesses can reap the benefits of blockchain, without the risks commonly associated with cryptocurrencies

    Yosemite X, a blockchain technology company, today announced the release of its open-source public blockchain that operates without a native cryptocurrency, giving developers and businesses the ability to build solutions and reduce costs, without the price volatility of crypto.

    This approach enables companies to reap the benefits of blockchain – greater transparency, enhanced security, increased efficiency, speed of transactions at scale – and pay for their network usage with more stable fiat currencies.

    While the idea of using the blockchain technology to cut down the cost of operation has intrigued many businesses, few have proved to be practical due to the technology’s reliance on volatile native cryptocurrency. Even those that have been implemented in enterprises are often based on permissioned blockchains, which are really a glorified centralized server system with shared access to the control room amongst agreed/pre-determined partners. With Yosemite Public Blockchain, which is designed to operate and transact with fiat-backed stablecoin, businesses can – for the first time on a public blockchain – accurately project their operating costs, which are expected to be significantly lower than other financial transaction systems.

  • Engineer Spotlight: Open Source Signal Integrity Engineering with Davi Correia and David Banas

    Signal Integrity Engineers David Banas and Davi Correia share their thoughts on the future of electrical engineering, the freedom of giving code away for free, and the importance of professional curiosity.

    The electrical engineering community is a tightknit group full of cooperation and support, and two great examples of that are David Banas and Davi Corriea. They've achieved a high level of success in their careers, but they also give back to their fellow engineers. Banas, of Haskware and eASIC, is the developer of PyBERT, an open-source serial communication link bit error rate tester, and Correia, of Carlisle Interconnect Technologies, developed many tools to automate parts of the product design process, increasing efficiency for his company and the EE community at large.

  • Should your company be open to open sourcing its software?

    Developing software can be a long, expensive process for a company, yet there are many advantages to open sourcing, which may seem counterintuitive at first.

    For Salesforce, sharing means a lot more than caring. In fact, last year, Salesforce announced that it was open sourcing the machine learning technology behind its Einstein AI platform.

    “Three years ago when we set out to build machine learning capabilities into the Salesforce platform, we learned that building enterprise-scale machine learning systems is even harder,” stated Shubha Nabar, senior director of data science on the Salesforce Einstein team, in a detailed Medium post.

    Nabar went on to explain why Salesforce decided to bring this project to the open source (OS) community stating, “Machine learning has the potential to transform how businesses operate, and we believe that barriers to adoption can only be lowered through an open exchange of ideas and code. By working in the open we can bring together diverse perspectives to continue to push the technology forward and make it accessible to everyone.”

  • The ‘Big Bang’ of Data Science and ML Tools

    The tools used for data science are rapidly changing at the moment, according to Gartner, which said we’re in the midst of a “big bang” in its latest report on data science and machine learning platforms.

  • Databricks’ Recent $250 Mn Funding Shows How The Spark Creators Are Ahead In The AI Game

    If there is one key takeaway from Databricks’ recent and much talked about $250 million funding — that there is a dramatic increase in venture financing of big data, cloud and AI technologies. In fact, analysts have pointed out that these three sectors — artificial intelligence, big data and cloud — have significantly exceeded valuation since the technology holds tremendous potential to transform a wide range of industries.

    Ali Ghodsi and Matei Zaharia, inventors of Spark and the founders of Databricks, capitalised on the shifting nature of big data by providing a unified analytics platform. In fact, last week the San Francisco-based company saw another blockbuster funding round of  $250 million, which put Databricks’ valuation at $2.75 billion. Interestingly, the company that has been dubbed more “evolutionary rather than revolutionary” in terms of putting Spark in the cloud and also providing tools tailored for AI pipelines and multi-cloud environments has managed to stay current by keeping a pulse on where the market is heading and what customers required.

          ¿Busca punto medio?, Nancy Pelosi vs Donald Trump y su muro fronterizo      Cache   Translate Page      
Los republicanos etiquetaron durante años a Nancy Pelosi como una liberal de San Francisco y ahora intentan presentarla como rehén de la izquierda que ha resurgido en el Partido Demócrata.

Sin embargo, en su papel de presidenta de la Cámara de Representantes, Pelosi ha demostrado pragmatismo. Está dispuesta a encontrar un punto medio con el presidente Donald Trump a fin de concederle recursos para la construcción de algunas vallas en la zona limítrofe con México a pesar de sus señalamientos de que el muro fronterizo del mandatario era “inmoral” y sus promesas de no darle un solo centavo.

Y mientras el ala progresista del Partido Demócrata intenta concretar sueños como “Medicare (atención médica) para todos” y un “Nuevo Trato Verde”, Pelosi ha guardado distancias.

“Nos orientamos en resultados, nos basamos en valores, y estamos a favor del denominador común más audaz”, declaró Pelosi el viernes en una breve entrevista. “Todo mundo tiene un camino para defender su caso, para ver las opciones disponibles. Estoy casada con la Ley de Salud Asequible porque creo que es una alternativa a favor de la atención médica para todos los estadounidenses”.





Pelosi preside la bancada demócrata de 235 miembros que asumió el control de la Cámara de Representantes después de los comicios legislativos de noviembre, impulsada por el enojo de los votantes hacia Trump. La nueva mayoría incluye a legisladores liberales, jóvenes, desafiantes y mediáticos como la representante demócrata de Nueva York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, una consentida entre activistas demócratas y un fenómeno en redes sociales.

“Hay una nueva camada de demócratas que hacen ver a Pelosi como moderada. Nunca creí ver este día”, dijo el representante republicano de Oregon, Greg Walden. “Veo este despliegue del Nuevo Trato Verde, del Medicare para todos, pero no veo que ella acompañe estas propuestas”.


Mientras algunos izquierdistas exigen un juicio político contra Trump, Pelosi pide calma a los demócratas porque, dice, es necesario verificar a cabalidad cualquier prueba. Pelosi se opone a exigir a Trump la entrega inmediata de las devoluciones de impuestos, lo que ha suscitado disgusto entre legisladores demócratas impacientes, como el representante Bill Pascrell.

La habilidad política de Pelosi es indiscutible. Fue una presidenta sólida de la Cámara de Representantes durante el periodo 2007-2010, cuando mantuvo la unidad entre los demócratas e ignoró a los republicanos a veces por completo.

Sin embargo, algún sector de su bancada comenzó a dudar de la capacidad de Pelosi después de los ciclos electorales adversos para los demócratas en 2010, 2014 y 2016.

Como sea, Pelosi, se impuso a quienes dudaban de ella, en un desafío de liderazgo el otoño pasado, cuando surgió con más fuerza que antes. A los 78 años se alzó como heroína del partido tras su victoria sobre Trump en la disputa por el cierre del gobierno y aumentó su influencia en las actuales negociaciones. Hasta el momento hay pocas quejas entre los demócratas.

          Don Divo Barsotti a sorpresa: "io sono perplesso nei confronti del Concilio"...      Cache   Translate Page      

Io sono perplesso nei confronti del Concilio: la pletora dei documenti, la loro lunghezza, spesso il loro linguaggio, mi fanno paura. Sono documenti che rendono testimonianza di una sicurezza tutta umana più che di una fermezza semplice di fede. Ma soprattutto mi indigna il comportamento dei teologi. Il Concilio e l’esercizio supremo del magistero è giustificato solo da una suprema necessità. La gravità paurosa della situazione presente della Chiesa non potrebbe derivare proprio dalla leggerezza di aver voluto provocare e tentare il Signore? Si è voluto forse costringere Dio a parlare quando non c’era questa suprema necessità? È forse così? Per giustificare un Concilio che ha preteso di rinnovare ogni cosa, bisognava affermare che tutto andava male, cosa che si fa continuamente, se non dall’episcopato, dai teologi. Nulla mi sembra più grave, contro la santità di Dio, della presunzione dei chierici che credono, con un orgoglio che è soltanto diabolico, di poter manipolare la verità, che pretendono di rinnovare la Chiesa e di salvare il mondo senza rinnovare se stessi. 
In tutta la storia della Chiesa nulla è paragonabile all’ultimo Concilio, nel quale l’episcopato cattolico ha creduto di poter rinnovare ogni cosa obbedendo soltanto al proprio orgoglio, senza impegno di santità, in una opposizione così aperta alla legge dell’evangelo che ci impone di credere come l’umanità di Cristo è stata strumento dell’onnipotenza dell’amore che salva, nella sua morte.
