Among products, the thoraco-lumbar segment commands a major share of the global interbody fusion cage market. The thoraco-lumbar spinal region is the maximum-affected area by diseases and injuries, such as, tumor, disc degenerative disease, trauma, and infectious diseases and requires treatment by spinal interbody fusion cage technique. Thus, this factor is promoting the growth of the interbody fusion cage market.

Based on type of surgery, the anterior surgery segment commanded a major share in 2017. It is easy as well as convenient to implant larger bone cages and grafts, thereby enabling improved initial stability as well as compression of the fusion construct.

On the basis of geography, North America accounts for a leading share of the interbody fusion cage market, in terms of revenue, followed by Europe. The interbody fusion cage market in the emerging countries, such as, China, South Korea, Brazil, and India is expected to grow significantly during the next five years. The market is likely to be dominated by North America and Europe during the forecast period. The prominent market share of North America can be attributed to the well-established health care infrastructure and rise in adoption rate of interbody fusion cage across various health care settings in the region.

The interbody fusion cage market in Asia Pacific market is expected to witness a significant growth due to increase in geriatric population, high prevalence of spinal injuries, investments made by market players in the emerging countries, such as, China and India, and rise in consumer awareness about this treatment in the region.

          Veterinary X-Ray Market to Record Exponential Growth by 2026      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/09/2019 -- X-ray machines are equipment that produce x-ray radiations. These x-ray radiations are then used for medical diagnosis and interventions (e.g. catheter placement). X-ray machines are also used for diagnosis of disorders in animals.

View Report: https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/veterinary-x-ray-market.html

The global veterinary x-ray market is primarily driven by rapid rise in pet population across the world. The Pet Food Manufacturers Association, the U.K., estimated that 11 million households in the country had pets IN 2016, which grew to 12 million in 2017, and it is projected that the number of pet ownership will increase in the near future. Moreover, according to the Animal Medicines Australia, there were more than 24 million pets in the country in 2016, out of which, 4.8 million were dogs, and it rose by approximately 3% from 2013 to 2016. With the growth in pet population, demand for diagnosis of pets has also been increasing across the world, which is directly propelling the growth of the global veterinary x-ray market. In addition, rise in incidences of orthopedic diseases among animals is likely to drive the global veterinary x-ray market in the near future.

Despite the increasing incidence of orthopedic diseases among animals and growing pet population worldwide, high cost of veterinary X-ray instruments and limited number of skilled veterinary technicians are likely to restrain the growth of the global veterinary X-ray market during the forecast period. In many rural areas, the ratio or number of doctors against farm animal is very low. For instance, in Kansas (the U.S.), the size of cattle population is more than 240,500 against which the number of accredited veterinary technicians is only 8, i.e. 30,062: 1 in ratio (animal to veterinary technician).

Rise in percentage of pet insurance shows that pet owners are highly conscious about the well-being of their pets and this removes the cost burden of treatment associates with pets. With the help of pet health insurance policies, pet owners are able to opt for effective treatment for their pets, which in turn, creates an opportunity for market players to introduce advanced equipment for pet treatment.

In terms of product type, the global veterinary X-ray market can be segmented into portable and stationary. The portal product segment can be further classified into mobile and handheld. Based on animal type, the global veterinary X-ray market can be divided into companion and livestock. Based on companion animal, the market can be sub-segmented into feline, canine, and equine, while in terms of livestock, it can be sub-divided into ovine, bovine, porcine, and others. By end-user, the global veterinary X-ray market can be categorized into veterinary hospitals, veterinary clinics, and others.

Geographically, the global veterinary X-ray market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America constituted the dominant share of the global veterinary X-ray market in 2017 due to the presence of a large number of veterinary clinics and hospitals in the region. Factors, such as, well-established veterinary infrastructure and increasing adoption of pets are likely to boost the growth of the global veterinary X-ray market in Europe during the forecast period. The significant share of Asia Pacific in the global veterinary X-ray market can be attributed to the rise in disposable income among people and growing pet population in the region. However, underdeveloped veterinary infrastructure is likely to hinder the growth of the veterinary X-ray market in Middle East & Africa during the forecast period.

          Cartilage Repair Market to Register Substantial Expansion by 2026      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/09/2019 -- Cartilage is a soft and rubbery material present in joints and is involved in preventing friction between bones by acting as a shock absorber. Damage to cartilage restricts the normal movement of joint causing pain. It most often occurs after a traumatic and twisting injury to the joint. If left untreated, it may require joint replacement surgery. Knee cartilage repair has been beneficial for conditions such as malunions, delayed unions, and slow healing wounds. Advances in knee cartilage repair products have bolstered the growth of this industry.

View Report: https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/cartilage-repair-market.html

Geriatrics will constitute a prominent chunk of the world's population. The health care industry stands to gain from this, as people aged over 65 years are highly prone to various disorders. One of the most common disorders among the geriatric population is damage to the knee cartilage or reduction of lubricants over a period of time. Moreover, the global cartilage repair market is gaining traction due to increase in obesity across the globe. Obese individuals are highly likely to damage their knees over a period of two decades, which eventually leads to the loss of cartilage in the joints. Additionally, arthritis remains a ubiquitous disease and health care infrastructure is improving in several emerging economies.

These factors are expected to drive demand for knee cartilage repair during the forecast period. However, lack of awareness about the availability of innovative therapies and considerable cost of the repair are likely to restrain the market. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common type of arthritis or degenerative joint disease. It is a leading cause of chronic disability. The disease most commonly affects the middle-aged and elderly, although younger people may be affected as a result of injury or overuse. Rise in incidence of joint disorders is another key factor likely to fuel the growth of the global cartilage repair market during the forecast period.

          Charting a New Course – The Future of Saint Lucia Port Infrastructure      Cache   Translate Page      

Today’s tourism providers need quality infrastructure more than ever.

          Taxes, are they morally wrong?      Cache   Translate Page      

There you go again. Try this:

The job of firefighters is to ration water* on behalf of the state (not to protect public and private property, rescue cats from trees, remove snakes & bees, and save lives).

*(or nowadays, chemicals that seep into the groundwater and make it undrinkable)

Violence is theoretically the last resort. We all know it’s often the first resort, but that’s (slowly) becoming less popular in many countries due to improvements in training.

As such:

One man’s direct route is another’s garden path. :wilted_flower:#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000


Maybe he would. (Does anyone have a citation handy?)

You might think British conservatives would also like progressive tax, since they invented it.

Are you telling us you’re not as smart as Warren B, Donald T, or even the average American taxpayer?

What is the moral justification for democracy? How is it fair to deprive kings and queens of their property and other rights and seize the fruits of their labor?

Less facetiously, is it fair to give one vote to every person? That means household A has 1 vote while household B has 5 votes, just because of different birth rates, widowhood/divorce, etc. Also, people with IQ++ get fewer votes than the average masses. You can manipulate the system in so many ways…

In short, there are reasonable arguments to be made for the unfairness of democracy.

Are any of those arguments enough to justify switching to “one of the other systems”? :ponder:#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Also not so facetiously, is the birth lottery fair?

If not, is that a good enough reason to replace it with, say, a non-viviparous system? Or to go full Borg?

Oh, I see you also have an answer for that:

I.e. no, it’s not fair. Just when you need your money the most (when you’re dead), the state comes and snatches a percentage of it! Your children might actually need to work! Oh, the horror! :scream:#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

In the words of someone you claim to be less smart than:

Of course you can, but a flat tax would (most likely) lead to an increase in the wealth gap, and the larger the wealth gap, the more of a struggle it is to maintain social order.

For a microcosmic example, studies show single-class flights are easier to manage than multi-class flights. Every class resents the other(s) and projects that resentment onto the staff, causing more disruptions than would otherwise occur. (And keep in mind, that’s with the proles sitting at the back of the bus plane instead of having their cheap seats scattered around.)

If productivity is measured solely in monetary terms, casinos are wildly productive. In fact, they’re one of the most productive productivity devices ever produced. Any jurisdiction that bans them because of nanny state socialist ideology or horror stories about people who screw up their lives and their families’ lives because they aren’t smart enough to win is really just shooting itself in the foot. :foot:#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000 :gun:#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

A recent review of our polar systems has highlighted that some of our existing reception infrastructure is now approaching end-of-life. This has led us to start considering our requirements for the future of polar reception at Exeter and how we might meet them. We are therefore currently investigating potential upgrade and/or replacement paths for our polar reception infrastructure.

          IN ITS INSANE ENTIRETY: The Nazi-esque Green New Deal Posted by @AOC and Then Rapidly Pulled Down      Cache   Translate Page      
Below is the fact sheet and FAQ posted on February 7, 2019 by @AOC and then rapidly pulled down after a firestorm of mockery, derision and reminders of its similarity to the stated goals of the Nazi and Communist Parties. Be aware there is a massive disinformation campaign attempting to claim that a GOP operative wrote the document and falsely attributed it to the totalitarian Marxist kook from New York. That assertion was hastily disproven. Here is AOC's document in all of its insane, fascist totalitarianism.

FEBRUARY 8, 2019

By Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Overview

We will begin work immediately on Green New Deal bills to put the nuts and bolts on the plan described in this resolution (important to say so someone else can’t claim this mantle).

This is a massive transformation of our society with clear goals and a timeline.

The Green New Deal resolution a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and create economic prosperity for all. It will:

§ Move America to 100% clean and renewable energy

§ Create millions of family supporting-wage, union jobs

§ Ensure a just transition for all communities and workers to ensure economic security for people and communities that have historically relied on fossil fuel industries

§ Ensure justice and equity for frontline communities by prioritizing investment, training, climate and community resiliency, economic and environmental benefits in these communities. § Build on FDR’s second bill of rights by guaranteeing:

· A job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security

· High-quality education, including higher education and trade schools

· Clean air and water and access to nature

· Healthy food

· High-quality health care

· Safe, affordable, adequate housing

· Economic environment free of monopolies

· Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work

There is no time to waste.

o IPCC Report said global emissions must be cut by by 40-60% by 2030. US is 20% of total emissions. We must get to 0 by 2030 and lead the world in a global Green New Deal.

Americans love a challenge. This is our moonshot.

o When JFK said we’d go to the by the end of the decade, people said impossible.

o If Eisenhower wanted to build the interstate highway system today, people would ask how we’d pay for it. o When FDR called on America to build 185,000 planes to fight World War 2, every business leader, CEO, and general laughed at him. At the time, the U.S. had produced 3,000 planes in the last year. By the end of the war, we produced 300,000 planes. That’s what we are capable of if we have real leadership

This is massive investment in our economy and society, not expenditure.

o We invested 40-50% of GDP into our economy during World War 2 and created the greatest middle class the US has seen.

o The interstate highway system has returned more than $6 in economic productivity for every $1 it cost

o This is massively expanding existing and building new industries at a rapid pace – growing our economy

The Green New Deal has momentum.

o 92 percent of Democrats and 64 percent of Republicans support the Green New Deal

o Nearly every major Democratic Presidential contender say they back the Green New deal including: Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Jeff Merkeley, Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, and Jay Inslee.

o 45 House Reps and 330+ groups backed the original resolution for a select committee

o Over 300 local and state politicians have called for a federal Green New Deal

o New Resolution has 20 co-sponsors, about 30 groups (numbers will change by Thursday).

FAQ

Why 100% clean and renewable and not just 100% renewable? Are you saying we won’t transition off fossil fuels?

Yes, we are calling for a full transition off fossil fuels and zero greenhouse gases. Anyone who has read the resolution sees that we spell this out through a plan that calls for eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from every sector of the economy. Simply banning fossil fuels immediately won’t build the new economy to replace it – this is the plan to build that new economy and spells out how to do it technically. We do this through a huge mobilization to create the renewable energy economy as fast as possible. We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, but we think we can ramp up renewable manufacturing and power production, retrofit every building in America, build the smart grid, overhaul transportation and agriculture, plant lots of trees and restore our ecosystem to get to net-zero.

Is nuclear a part of this?

A Green New Deal is a massive investment in renewable energy production and would not include creating new nuclear plants. It’s unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible. No one has put the full 10-year plan together yet, and if it is possible to get to fully 100% renewable in 10 years, we will do that.

Does this include a carbon tax?

The Green New Deal is a massive investment in the production of renewable energy industries and infrastructure. We cannot simply tax gas and expect workers to figure out another way to get to work unless we’ve first created a better, more affordable option. So we’re not ruling a carbon tax out, but a carbon tax would be a tiny part of a Green New Deal in the face of the gigantic expansion of our productive economy and would have to be preceded by first creating the solutions necessary so that workers and working class communities are not affected. While a carbon tax may be a part of the Green New Deal, it misses the point and would be off the table unless we create the clean, affordable options first.

Does this include cap and trade?

The Green New Deal is about creating the renewable energy economy through a massive investment in our society and economy. Cap and trade assumes the existing market will solve this problem for us, and that’s simply not true. While cap and trade may be a tiny part of the larger Green New Deal plan to mobilize our economy, any cap and trade legislation will pale in comparison to the size of the mobilization and must recognize that existing legislation can incentivize companies to create toxic hotspots in frontline communities, so anything here must ensure that frontline communities are prioritized.

Does a GND ban all new fossil fuel infrastructure or nuclear power plants?

The Green New Deal makes new fossil fuel infrastructure or nuclear plants unnecessary. This is a massive mobilization of all our resources into renewable energies. It would simply not make sense to build new fossil fuel infrastructure because we will be creating a plan to reorient our entire economy to work off renewable energy. Simply banning fossil fuels and nuclear plants immediately won’t build the new economy to replace it – this is the plan to build that new economy and spells out how to do it technically.

Are you for CCUS [Carbon Capture, Utilization, and Storage]?

We believe the right way to capture carbon is to plant trees and restore our natural ecosystems. CCUS technology to date has not proven effective. How will you pay for it? The same way we paid for the New Deal, the 2008 bank bailout and extended quantitative easing programs. The same way we paid for World War II and all our current wars. The Federal Reserve can extend credit to power these projects and investments and new public banks can be created to extend credit. There is also space for the government to take an equity stake in projects to get a return on investment. At the end of the day, this is an investment in our economy that should grow our wealth as a nation, so the question isn’t how will we pay for it, but what will we do with our new shared prosperity.

Why do we need a sweeping Green New Deal investment program? Why can’t we just rely on regulations and taxes and the private sector to invest alone such as a carbon tax or a ban on fossil fuels?

· The level of investment required is massive. Even if every billionaire and company came together and were willing to pour all the resources at their disposal into this investment, the aggregate value of the investments they could make would not be sufficient.

· The speed of investment required will be massive. Even if all the billionaires and companies could make the investments required, they would not be able to pull together a coordinated response in the narrow window of time required to jump-start major new projects and major new economic sectors. Also, private companies are wary of making massive investments in unproven research and technologies; the government, however, has the time horizon to be able to patiently make investments in new tech and R&D, without necessarily having a commercial outcome or application in mind at the time the investment is made. Major examples of government investments in “new” tech that subsequently spurred a boom in the private section include DARPA projects, the creation of the internet - and, perhaps most recently, the government’s investment in Tesla.

· Simply put, we don’t need to just stop doing some things we are doing (like using fossil fuels for energy needs); we also need to start doing new things (like overhauling whole industries or retrofitting all buildings to be energy efficient). Starting to do new things requires some upfront investment. In the same way that a company that is trying to change how it does business may need to make big upfront capital investments today in order to reap future benefits (for e.g., building a new factory to increase production or buying new hardware and software to totally modernize its IT system), a country that is trying to change how its economy works will need to make big investments today to jump-start and develop new projects and sectors to power the new economy.

· Merely incentivizing the private sector doesn’t work - e.g. the tax incentives and subsidies given to wind and solar projects have been a valuable spur to growth in the US renewables industry but, even with such investment promotion subsidies, the present level of such projects is simply inadequate to transition to a fully greenhouse gas neutral economy as quickly as needed.

· Once again, we’re not saying that there isn’t a role for private sector investments; we’re just saying that the level of investment required will need every actor to pitch in and that the government is best placed to be the prime driver.

          "SOTU Speech, my Favorite Parts" by Terity - 2.8.19      Cache   Translate Page      
Entry Submitted by Terity at 11:05 AM EST on February 8, 2019

Following are my favorite parts from the SOTU speech. During most of it I was moved to tears. For me this would have to be the best SOTU speech ever.

--------------

We meet tonight at a moment of unlimited potential. What an awesome opening line!

(The agenda I will lay out this evening....) It is the agenda of the American people.

There is a new opportunity in American politics, if only we have the courage to seize it.

Victory is winning for our country.

These could be alluding to an RV...

In the 20th century, ..... redefined the middle class standard of living for the entire world to see.

...and we must create a new standard of living for the 21st century. An amazing quality of life for all of our citizens is within our reach.

We can make our communities safer, our families stronger, our culture richer, our faith deeper, and our middle class bigger and more prosperous than ever before.

...and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good.

Together, we can break decades of political stalemate. We can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions, and unlock the extraordinary promise of America's future. The decision is ours to make.

We must choose between greatness or gridlock, results or resistance, vision or vengeance, incredible progress or pointless destruction.

Tonight, I ask you to choose greatness.

In just over 2 years since the election, we have launched an unprecedented economic boom -- a boom that has rarely been seen before.

We have unleashed a revolution in American energy.

Our country is vibrant and our economy is thriving like never before.

Now is the time for bipartisan action.

...and after four decades of rejection, we passed VA Accountability so we can finally terminate those who mistreat our wonderful veterans.

This legislation (First Step Act) reformed sentencing laws that have wrongly and disproportionately harmed the African-American community.

Now is the time for the Congress to show the world that America is committed to ending illegal immigration and putting the ruthless coyotes, cartels, drug dealers, and human traffickers out of business.

Legal immigrants enrich our Nation and strengthen our society in countless ways. I want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally.

Tolerance for illegal immigration is not compassionate -- it is cruel. One in three women is sexually assaulted on the long journey north.

Smugglers use migrant children as human pawns to exploit our laws and gain access to our country.

Human traffickers and sex traffickers take advantage of the wide open areas between our ports of entry to smuggle thousands of young girls and women into the United States and to sell them into prostitution and modern-day slavery.

Simply put, walls work and walls save lives. So let's work together, compromise, and reach a deal that will truly make America safe.

Both parties should be able to unite for a great rebuilding of America's crumbling infrastructure.

To help support working parents, the time has come to pass school choice for America's children. I am also proud to be the first President to include in my budget a plan for nationwide paid family leave -- so that every new parent has the chance to bond with their newborn child.

To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother's womb. (That we, as a humanity, are even discussing this issue is madness to me. This is murder. Plain and simple. But we know what's behind it...)

Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life. And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth: all children -- born and unborn -- are made in the holy image of God.

Under my Administration, we will never apologize for advancing America's interests.

Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence --- not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free. Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.

What will we do with this moment? How will we be remembered?

We must choose whether we will squander our inheritance -- or whether we will proudly declare that we are Americans. We do the incredible. We defy the impossible. We conquer the unknown.

This is the time to re-ignite the American imagination. This is the time to search for the tallest summit, and set our sights on the brightest star. This is the time to rekindle the bonds of love and loyalty and memory that link us together as citizens, as neighbors, as patriots.

This is our future -- our fate -- and our choice to make. I am asking you to choose greatness.

No matter the trials we face, no matter the challenges to come, we must go forward together.

---------

We must keep freedom alive in our souls.

Freedom for all!

Vietnam : Credit growth of 14% a feasible target for 2019


2nd February, 2019

The country’s credit growth target of 14 per cent set for this year, the same rate as last year, was reasonable and achievable, economists said.

Nguyễn Đức Thành, Director of the Vietnam Institute for Economic and Policy Research under the Vietnam National University - Hanoi’s University of Economics and Business, said credit expansion is expected to remain stable this year at around 14 per cent.

According to Thành, there is no reason for a higher credit growth this year when the economy is still gaining a good growth rate without needing capital.

Thành explained that previously, Việt Nam’s economic growth often relied heavily on increased credit, however, things have changed. Now, the economy can grow without strong lending, particularly when the supporting industry as well as the services and agricultural sectors are becoming more attractive to foreign investors. “When credit use improves, there should be a better credit growth policy in the long term,” Thành suggested.

Vietnam : Securities, bond markets set for strong 2019

31st January, 2019

SSC chairman Trần Văn Dũng. He predicts the stock market will continue its strong development this year thanks to positive macroeconomic fundamentals

Trần Văn Dũng, chairman of the State Securities Commission, speaks to Vietnam News Agency about the securities market’s prospects this year following negative growth in 2018.
What’s your assessment of the size and quality of the stock and bond markets?

The Vietnamese economy developed strongly in 2018 with macroeconomic indicators such as GDP growth, import-export turnover, inflation, the exchange rate, interest rate and budget spending meeting or beating targets set by the National Assembly.

The securities market, despite seeing a strong decline due to the volatility of global stock markets, recorded increases in market capitalisation and trading liquidity. It remained a key fund-raising channel for private firms and made great contributions to overall economic development.

The stock market value reached VNĐ3.96 quadrillion (US$170.3 billion) in 2018, up 12.7 per cent year-on-year. The figure was equal to 72 per cent of the nation’s total GDP and outperformed the NA target set for 2020 (70 per cent). The average trading value of stocks and fund certificates was VNĐ6.55 trillion in each session, up 29 per cent year-on-year, and total value of newly-listing shares gained 12.8 per cent to VNĐ1.21 quadrillion.

Despite recent growth, the size of the Vietnamese stock market was smaller than those of other regional markets such as Thailand ($548 billion), Malaysia ($456 billion) and Singapore ($787 billion). In each of those countries, the value of the stock market was more than 100 per cent of its total GDP.

There was also a strong development on the Vietnamese bond market in 2018. There were 573 listed bonds with total value of VNĐ1.12 quadrillion, up 10.4 per cent year-on-year. Of the figure, the value of government bonds (G-bonds) accounted for 98 per cent of the total and the remaining were corporate bonds. The size of the Vietnamese bond market was equal to 35.2 per cent of Việt Nam’s total GDP, which was also modest compared to other regional and international bond markets such as Malaysia (97.7 per cent), Singapore (86 per cent), the Republic of Korea (125.7 per cent) and Japan (211.4 per cent).

What opportunities and challenges face the Vietnamese securities market in 2019?

We have to be aware of external factors that could impact the domestic securities market though it is predicted to receive intense support from the stability of the macroeconomy and last year’s market performance.

Concerns include the unpredictability of the US-China trade tensions that may have negative effects on global trade, economy and capital flow, and the upcoming interest rate increases of the Federal Reserve, which may raise capital expenses on foreign investors, forcing them to run away from emerging markets like Việt Nam.

Regarding internal factors, there is a big chance for the Vietnamese securities market this year. The development, management and operation of the market have gained special attention from the Government, the Prime Minister and officials.

At a Government meeting last year, the Prime Minister emphasised the importance of institutional reform and the development of the private sector. The co-working of ministries and sectors with the combination of fiscal and monetary policies has proved effective and helped stabilise the macroeconomy and the securities market.

The Government recently issued Resolution 01/NQ-CP, which mentions the further development of the securities market through new financial and securities products, and the equitisation, restructuring and listing of State-owned enterprises.

The development of the private sector, improvement of the business environment and enhancement of SOE equitisation in 2019 are expected to provide the securities market with a huge load of high-quality options.

In addition, the Vietnamese economy is forecast to perform better in 2019 as it is lifted by the profound fundamentals achieved in previous years. Budget spending, interest rates and inflation are being kept at acceptable levels and the ongoing development of the amended Law on Securities is expected to help improve the market in the near future.

Under the management of the Government, the Ministry of Finance and the State Securities Commission (SSC), with the presence and participation of market members, I believe the Vietnamese securities market will seize its opportunities to foster future growth. The SSC will continue co-operating with other ministries and agencies to create a good legal system to lure foreign capital to the market.

What policies has the SSC adopted to guide market development in 2019?

To shape a stable, sustainable and efficient securities market in 2019, the SSC will implement both long-term and short-term solutions to make it healthier and stronger. In 2019, the top priority is to get the amended Law on Securities and related instructions approved, such as the instructional document on handling securities violations approved by the National Assembly.

The SSC will also enhance the restructuring of the securities market, complete tasks to establish the Vietnam Stock Exchange, and restructure the operation of brokerage and asset management firms by reducing their numbers and improving their quality. The SSC will also promote solutions to upgrade Việt Nam from a “frontier market” to an “emerging market” by the standards set by Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) and the Financial Times Stock Exchange (FTSE).

The policies will focus on luring foreign capital and foreign investors, resolving problems with foreign ownership caps by issuing the revised Law on Securities, and developing additional securities products to draw more participation of foreign investors in the market. The SSC will also work with market members and other government agencies to improve transparency, and reduce administrative procedures to make trading faster and more precise for foreign investors, saving them time, effort and expense.

The commission will co-operate with ratings organisations, including the MSCI, to update information about the Vietnamese securities market and provide international organisations with a clearer, more insightful outlook of the Vietnamese market.

In addition, the SSC will promote the Vietnamese securities market as a transparent and sustainable entity to international investors and ratings organisations.

In 2019, the SSC will continue working with local bourses to launch covered warrant, g-bond futures and other stock index futures like the current four VN30 Index-referred futures. LINK

Vietnam : Central bank to ease lending rates

2nd February, 2019

The State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) buying net US$4 billion in January may be the way to lower Vietnamese đồng lending rates.

The data was announced at the Government’s monthly meeting on Thursday.

To achieve such a result, the central bank in late November 2018 sold greenback futures that would be delivered in late January 2019 to raise the market supply of dollars, vneconomy.vn reported on Friday.

Then on the first working day of 2019 (January 2), the central bank for the first time in a year raised its purchasing rate by VNĐ500 to VNĐ23,200 for a dollar from the last-day rate of 2018.

As of December 31, 2018, the purchasing rate for a US dollar set by the SBV was VNĐ22,700. The rate was cut by VNĐ10 on February 8, 2018.

In addition to the two technical measures, the central bank also increased the gap between Vietnamese đồng and dollar interest rates on the interbank market, making Vietnamese đồng more attractive for savings and thus balance the foreign exchange rate with the dollar.

After a month, the central bank was able to lure a huge amount of US dollars for its reserves, proving the supply of foreign currency in Viet Nam had been great and consolidating and helping transform a part of foreign currency held in the economy in recent years.

But SBV may not stop buying dollars from the market, not only to increase its foreign reserves but also to lower the đồng lending rates.

Buying $4 billion means SBV had to inject a huge amount of Vietnamese đồng into the market, which would help balance the market demand-supply during the Tet period – the peak season for making payments – and create additional supply of cash for lenders – who accepted mortgages from borrowers.

Local commercial banks have recently cut their đồng-based lending rates. For example, the Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Foreign Trade of Vietnam (Vietcombank) on January 9 cut its lending rate for short-term loans by 0.5 per cent to 6 per cent.

Vietnamese đồng-based interest rates have been kept more attractive than the dollar-based ones, raising expectations that cash would flow back into commercial banks after the festival was over, and thus, easing the lending rates among commercial banks.

Between late 2018 and late January 2019, đồng-based interbank offered rates kept increasing to 5.19 per cent per year, twice the dollar-based offered rate on the same market.
Between commercial banks and individual and institutional clients, đồng-based offered interest rates showed signs of increasing to 8.5-8.7 per cent per annum for long-term savings.

In 2018, many central banks had to increase interest rates and depreciate domestic currencies to deal with the stronger dollar and the outflow of foreign capital.

During last year, the global markets became used to the Federal Reserve’s rate increase plan as it reflected the “hawkish view” of Fed officials, strengthened the dollar against other currencies and resulted in the outflow of foreign capital from emerging markets.

On January 30, the Fed signalled it may stop raising rates and global analysts saw that could be the end of the rate hike plan. And it may even mean the Fed would cut rates if needed. LINK

Vietnam to create favourable conditions for private firms

7th February, 2019

Vân Đồn International Airport, developed by private Sun Group, was put into operation on December 30, 2018. Việt Nam will continue to hasten efforts of improving the business climate to promote the development of the private sector

Việt Nam will continue to hasten efforts to improve the business climate in terms of quality to create favourable conditions for the private sector to play its role as a driver in promoting rapid and sustainable economic growth.

The country targeted to have one million firms by 2020, of which, there would be a lot of large private corporations who were arising strongly in both domestic and international markets in key sectors like manufacturing, aviation, finance and banking, agriculture and telecommunications.

According to Nguyễn Xuân Thắng, Hồ Chí Minh National Academy of Politics, the private sector was still facing difficulties in accessing resources, market opportunities and advanced technologies.

President and CEO of Vietjet Nguyễn Thị Phương Thảo said at the Việt Nam Economic Forum 2019 that Việt Nam in recent years had sent a strong message about building a constructive government with open mechanisms for the private sector.

However, Thảo said it was necessary to speed up the privatisation of State-owned enterprises (SOEs) and the restructuring of the banking sector to minimise the negative impacts on macro-finance and growth prospects.

Thảo also urged the Government to develop mechanisms and policies to exploit resources of the private sector for infrastructure development and enable them to grasp opportunities from Industry 4.0 to enhance productivity.

The private sector should be encouraged to participate in what they could do well, Thảo said, stressing that private firms expected to have a fair playground with other economic sectors.

Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc said in a dialogue at the World Economic Forum in Davos that the private economic sector was an important driver for growth of Việt Nam amid an anticipated slow-down of the global economy.

Phúc added that attracting foreign direct investment together with enhancing linkage with the domestic sector also played a significant role in promoting economic development.

According to Ousmane Dione, World Bank Vietnam’s Country Director, Việt Nam faced a significant opportunity in upgrading its domestic value contribution to capture the benefits of FDI inflows and global value chains. This required enhancing linkages with the domestic economy, he stressed.

Vũ Đại Thắng, Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment, said that the goal of having one million firms by 2020 was within reach, given the efforts of improving the business climate.

The Ministry of Planning and Investment recently made public a draft law to amend the Law on Investment and the Law on Enterprise, which aimed to create favourable conditions for the businesses and private sector to develop.

Việt Nam set goal of increasing the contribution of the private sector to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) to 50 per cent by 2020, 55 per cent by 2025 and 60-65 per cent by 2030. Every year, the private sector generated 1.2 million jobs and contributed 43 per cent to GDP. LINK

The problem is this area with its crummy infrastructure, scarce water and crappy soil will not be able to play when there are so many suitable locations where the impact on the environment is not an issue thus the fines and fees are not the problem they are here.

Exploiting IoT Vulnerabilities

Dr. Yatish Joshi, Senior Engineer, Cisco Systems

11:45am-1:00pm Monday, 18 February 2019, ITE 325-B

The past decade has seen explosive growth in the use and deployment of IoT (Internet of Things) devices. According to Gartner there will be about 20.8 billion IoT devices in use by 2020. These devices are seeing wide spread adoption as they are cheap, easy to use and require little to no maintenance. In most cases, setup simply requires using a web or phone app to configure Wi-Fi credentials. Digital home assistants, security cameras, smart locks, home appliances, smart switches, toys, vacuum cleaners, thermostats, leakage sensors etc are examples of IoT devices that are widely used and deployed in home and enterprise environments.

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

The threat landscape is constantly evolving and threat actors are always on the prowl for new vulnerabilities they can exploit. With traditional attack methods yielding fewer exploits   due to the increased focus on security testing, frequent patches, increased user awareness, Threat actors have turned their attention on IoT devices and are exploiting inherent vulnerabilities in these devices. The vulnerabilities, always ON nature, and autonomous mode of operation allow attackers to spy on users, spoof data, or leverage them as botnet infrastructure to launch devastating attacks on third parties. Mirai, a well known IoT malware utilized hundreds and thousands of enslaved IoT devices to launch DDoS attacks on Dyn affecting access to Netflix, Twitter, Github and many other websites. With the release of the Mirai source code numerous variants of the malware are infecting IoT devices across the world and using them to carry out attacks.

These attacks are made possible because the devices are manufactured without security in mind!. In this talk I will demonstrate how one can hack a widely available off-the-shelf IP Camera and router by exploiting the vulnerabilities present in these devices to get on the network, steal personal data, spy on a user, disrupt operation etc. We will also look at what can be done to mitigate the dangers posed by IOT devices.

So attend hack & defend!

Dr. Yatish Joshi is a software engineer in the Firepower division at Cisco Systems where he works on developing new features for Cisco’s security offerings.

Seven take-aways from the Green New Deal launch

Sweeping in scope, an agenda to transform the US into a green leader has been launched in Washington DC, here are the key points

 Cong Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen Ed Markey

On Thursday, congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and senator Ed Markey presented an outline of a sweeping federal programme aiming at decarbonising the US economy.

The text makes for the most earnest attempt yet to define a concept that has been backed by many a Democratic presidential candidate, often with little detail.

The agenda would touch every aspect of the US economy and calls for carbon emissions and inequality to be tackled as one.

“Today is the day we truly embark on a comprehensive agenda of economic, social and racial justice in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a press conference launching the resolution.

There are many legislative hurdles for the deal to leap if it is ever to become US policy – not least the Republican-controlled senate and White House.

The plan was the beginning of a phase of “political education”, said Markey, that would eventually lead to the adoption of the package. The pair said the document had attracted 60 Democrats as cosponsors, from across the party.

In the interview, green energy may be clean, but that doesn’t mean its infrastructure is any less garish. Energy reporter Amy Harder reminds us that one of the lesser-discussed obstacles to a Green New Deal is good old-fashioned nimbyism: “A lot of people don’t like power lines being constructed right in their backyards.” Harder covers energy for Axios, and writes its Harder Line column.

          Feb 22: El Sueño Americano / The American Dream      Cache   Translate Page      

The Library Gallery presents El Sueño Americano / The American Dream, an exhibition of works by Arizona-based artist Tom Kiefer featuring 59 photographs of everyday objects carried by migrants across the United States border with Mexico that were subsequently confiscated or forfeited at a Customs and Border Control facility in southern Arizona. Considered non-essential and thus discarded, these personal belongings — from gloves to rosaries and wallets to water bottles — were valued by their owners for their utilitarian, personal, or sentimental value. In Kiefer’s graphically striking photographs, these personal items serve as traces of individual human stories. “My intent,” says the artist, “is to explore the humanity of the migrants who risk their lives crossing through the desert and to create a personal connection for the viewer to a migrant and their hope for a better life.”

Born in Wichita, Kansas, fine art photographer Tom Kiefer was raised primarily in the Seattle area and worked in Los Angeles as a graphic designer. Kiefer moved to Ajo, Arizona in December 2001 to fully develop and concentrate his efforts in studying and photographing the urban and rural landscape and the cultural infrastructure. In 2015, Kiefer was included in LensCulture‘s top 50 emerging photographers and Photolucida‘s top 50 Critical Mass. His ongoing photographic series El Sueño Americano (The American Dream) has been featured in news publications nationally and internationally.

Also on view: Migration Stories: Selections from the UMBC Photography Collections

Drawn from UMBC’s collections, Migration Stories features twenty photographs that address human migration from a variety of perspectives. The installation explores the role of photography in shaping the public image of this issue and in conveying individual narratives of translocation and displacement.

Both exhibitions will be on display in the Library Gallery through May 23.

The presentation of this exhibition is supported by an arts program grant from the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of Maryland and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support comes from the Libby Kuhn Endowment Fund, as well as individual contributions.

Replies: 22 Last poster: ppl at 10-02-2019 01:05 Topic is Open Ik vind eigenlijk dat iedere ict'er minstens een half jaar tot een jaar op een servicedesk moet hebben meegedraaid. De servicedesk is namelijk de ingang voor de mensen die daadwerkelijk van het systeem (of de systemen) gebruikmaken. Daarmee leren omgaan leert je juist waar zij naar kijken en hoe zij met ict omgaan. Voor veel ict'ers werkt dat enorm ontnuchterend. Onder ict'ers zelf is er vaak namelijk ook een verkeerd beeld van de eindgebruiker (denken dat iedereen wel weet hoe een computer werkt en dus wel administrator kan zijn of juist exact het tegenovergestelde...in beide gevallen creëer je als ict'er een probleem). Het leert je ook om oplossingen voor problemen te zoeken. Ik merk bij met name programmeurs dat die hier nog wel eens moeite mee hebben (een dns issue met vpn melden maar dan de systeem-/netwerkbeheerders nodig hebben om te achterhalen dat je een verkeerde dns server hebt ingesteld...als ict'er behoor je dat zelf te kunnen!). De disciplines systeembeheer en programmeren zijn verschillend maar in beide gevallen heb je wel degelijk baat bij kennis van beide disciplines. Iets wat overigens ook steeds belangrijker wordt omdat het gat tussen systeembeheer en programmeren kleiner aan het worden is; infrastructurele zaken en algemeen systeembeheer is nu ook al grotendeels scripting (zelfs bij Microsoft, daar kunnen sommige zaken alleen maar via scripting). Als je wil weten wat je voor een bepaald beroep aan kennis nodig hebt dan is het handig om te kijken naar wat de opleidingen bieden en wat men in vacatures als eisen/wensen neerzetten.

Replies: 4 Last poster: j-phone at 10-02-2019 01:03 Topic is Open defiant schreef op zondag 10 februari 2019 @ 00:46: [...] Ik snap de noodzaak voor waterschapsverkiezingen ook niet echt, maar het heeft waarschijnlijk ook te maken dat ze belasting kunnen heffen en je geen belasting wil heffen zonder democratische representatie. Ik denk dat het beste zou zijn om de taken van de waterschappen te splitsen in een infrastructureel gedeelte met een sterke focus op techniek en het gedeelte dat gaat over beleid dat burgers raakt onder te brengen bij gemeentes. Pijnpunt is natuurlijk wel de financiering, Nederland is sterk afhankelijk van goed watermanagement, zodra er geschoven wordt met belastingen kunnen bepaalde taken onder druk komen te staan. Dat patroon is elders ook al zichtbaar, onderhoud is niet populair bij politici.Het overhevelen van dat soort taken naar gemeentes lijkt mij een minder goed plan. Het beheren van water op het niveau dat benodigd is om Nederland goed te laten functioneren is te belangrijk om te laten doen door kleine opgesplitste gebieden. Water stroomt door teveel van die kleine gebieden. Regen valt daar ook. Voor wat betreft het infrastructurele deel ben ik het helemaal met je eens. Maar is er dan veel meer dat de burger interesseert op dit gebied?

          $26.4 Million Dollars to be Diverted to the Expansion of Sewers in Oakdale      Cache   Translate Page      

(Oakdale, NY); On February 8th, 2019, Senator Monica R. Martinez attended the Regional State of Long Island address where Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced that he would be redirecting federal and state funding to expand the current sewer systems in Oakdale.

The $26.4 million, previously dedicated to Great River, was voted down in a public referendum in January. As a direct result of Senator Martinez and her tireless advocacy for this project, this funding will work to connect 400 additional homes in the area she represents that currently depend on antiquated septic systems, and will hopefully reduce nitrogen loading into the Great South Bay.

Suffolk County will manage this project, and the funds will cover planning and implementation of this project. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2020.

Together with the Mastic, Babylon, and Patchogue projects, this will be the largest expansion of a sewer system in Suffolk County since the 1970’s. The project may be subject to an additional vote by the residents of this area.

“I want to start by thanking the Governor for working to redirect federal and state funding to expand the current sewer system in Oakdale,” stated Senator Martinez. “This is crucial to the health and well being of all residents in this area, and to the health of the Great South Bay. I am thrilled to see this much needed infrastructure funding being diverted to the Third Senatorial District.”

On Saturday the 2nd of February 2019 I went to this event thanks to a grant from Wikimedia Belgium to get me here with 3 fast trains and a somewhat slower one. That last one had to go uphill ALL the time tough, so it had a good excuse :-)

I demoed the PT_Assistant plugin, obviously and had the opportunity to network with several OpenStreetMap contributors who are interested in mapping public transport stops, itineraries and lines like I am.

In the beginning we got an interesting talk about “sustainable transport”, i.e. our generation fulfilling our transport needs without preventing the next generation(s) from doing so as well.

ToniE demoed his Perl script which performs validation on a selection of German PT networks and publishes them as web reports.

We also got a nice presentation of OpenTripPlanner. I hadn’t realised previously how useful it is for multimodal travel.

We may not have mapped a great amount on this day, but discussing how to go about it and exchanging experiences and views on the topic is obviously a very valuable exercise.

The hackerspace in Ulm has marvellous infrastructure, it has to be said. Great idea to have this kind of event there.

          Senate, House Bills Aim to Kill $7,500 Electric Vehicle Tax Credit, Add New EV Tax      Cache   Translate Page      
Lawmakers have proposed new legislation this week that is sure to sour any EV owner's day. While they have "little chance of passing," bills were filed Wednesday that would not only terminate the $7,500 EV tax credit but introduce a new "highway user fee" for alternative-fuel vehicles because "they are immune from gasoline taxes and ensure the money collected on a user's tax return goes into the Highway Trust Fund." Supporters claim the EV tax only benefits the elite. Opponents say the program disproportionately helps wealthy car buyers. "Rural America's taxpayers shouldn't be footing the bill for others to drive high-end electric vehicles," Rep. Jason Smith, R-Mo., said in a statement about the bill he authored. "The Electric Vehicle Tax Credit has benefited the wealthy at the expense of everyday Americans just trying to get by. It's time to end this wasteful subsidy and help rebuild our nation's infrastructure by ensuring every driver contributes to improving the roads we all use." Discussion

           Narita International Airport to extend runway to boost efficiency      Cache   Translate Page      
Japan's Narita International Airport has announced plans to extend the operational hours of one of its runways for landings and take-offs to boost efficiency.The Japan Times reported that runway hours will be extended to midnight on the main runway from October.This will enable international airlines to operate from Narita International Airport when Tokyo is scheduled to host the Olympics and Paralympics in 2020.The proposal has been approved by the town of Yokoshibahikari and the city of Sammu in Chiba Prefecture, along with all nine neighbouring municipalities."A formal agreement will soon be signed by the nine municipalities, the infrastructure ministry and Narita International Airport."Yokoshibahikari mayor Haruhiko Sato told the publication: "It is inevitable. I will try to explain things to residents in the town."The plan to extend the operating hours was initially opposed by neighbouring towns and cities, but an agreement was made following assurances from the airport operator over noise reduction measures.A formal agreement will soon be signed by the nine municipalities, the infrastructure ministry and Narita International Airport on the extension of hours for the 4,000m runway.Narita International Airport plans to construct a third runway in the 2020s. Data from 2016 suggests Narita managed almost 50 per cent of the country's international passenger traffic and 60 per cent of its international air cargo traffic.It acts as the main global hub of Japan Airlines, All Nippon Airways and Nippon Cargo Airlines, and as a hub for low-cost carriers, including Jetstar Japan, Peach and Vanilla.

          A New Generation of Carbon Farmers: Organic, Grass-Fed Ranch Connects Young Women to Agriculture      Cache   Translate Page      
February 6, 2019
Organic Consumers Association
Julie Wilson

For millennia, women have played a central role in farming and ranching communities. Today, a new generation of women are taking on new roles of carbon farmers and ranchers managers.

 

In the U.S., there are more than 900,000 women farmers, according to data collected in 2012 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  That means women constitute 31 percent of the agricultural sector, and contribute upwards of $12 billion to America’s economy.

 

Historically, men have been considered a better fit for work in the agriculture field, work often characterized as rugged and ruthless. But as regenerative agriculture becomes more popular, women are bringing unique strengths to the field.

 

At San Juan Ranch in Colorado’s San Luis Valley, a woman’s kindness and affinity for animals is viewed as a key component in producing humanely raised livestock. The 4,000-acre ranch, owned and operated by Julie Sullivan and George Whitten, is a certified organic, 100-percent grass-fed beef ranch that doubles as a teaching center. Sullivan told the Colorado Springs Gazette:

 

“I think a deep relationship (with the land and animals) really appeals to the young women who want to go into agriculture, or at least the young women that come here. I think that they’re looking for a way for their life to have meaning, for a way to feel their strength and their capacity inside the context of a relationship.”

 

For more than a decade, Sullivan and Whitten have hired interns or apprentices through the Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program. The interns work full time on the ranch for one year, learning about holistic management, animal husbandry, planned grazing, herding, ranch infrastructure maintenance, soil health, cover cropping, low-stress livestock handling, organic certification and the process for finishing grass-fed cattle. According to Quivira’s website:

 

Apprentices emerge from the program with tangible skills, both technical and interpersonal, that are essential for successful employment in sustainable agriculture, and for eventual ownership and management of their own operation.

 

The majority of interns hired to work at San Juan Ranch thus far have been women. In the beginning, Whitten was hesitant to hire women because he was unsure of their willingness to tackle some of the grittier parts of ranching. Again, from the Colorado Springs Gazette:

 

“Ranching communities have always had really strong women outside doing ranch work, but often those were people that either their husband had died or there were no sons in the family. George just didn’t think that young women would want to be covered in blood and puss and do branding and do castrating and want to lay underneath the truck and get oil in their face. It just hadn’t been his personal experience that women would want to do sort of some of that dirty messy part of ranching.”

 

Whitten, however, changed his mind—and his view of the role women play on the ranch—after their first female hire.

 

Among the women apprentices at San Juan Ranch is 25-year-old Morgan Atkinson, an Idaho native whose love for the great outdoors led to an interest in western land management and ranching and grazing practices. Growing up, Atkinson spent summers working at her family’s local grocery store. It was through this experience, as well as her education in environmental science, that Atkinson developed an interest in the way landscapes are used to produce food. She realized that maintaining a healthy ecosystem is key to producing healthy food, healthy soil and healthy animals. Atkinson says:

 

“Being raised in a small community taught me the necessity of supporting the local farmer we knew rather than blindly buying food unaware of where it was coming from. Because we are a local and independent grocery store, we rely on the same kind of local support and reciprocity. When I became independently interested in agriculture, I recognized that these ideas were already ingrained in my values."

 

By connecting young women to ranching and organic regenerative agriculture, San Juan Ranch is helping to build a new generation of carbon farmers with an emphasis on animal welfare. The cows at the ranch are 100-percent grass-fed, and when finished, are mainly sold wholesale through Sweet Grass Cooperative, a co-op co-founded by Sullivan and Whitten that’s comprised of small, sustainable ranchers.

 

With more than 30 years of experience in holistic management, Whitten understands the symbiotic relationship between purposeful cattle grazing and the carbon-sequestering potential of healthy grasslands. Through cover cropping and holistic grazing, the land at San Juan Ranch remains productive despite enduring severe droughts and other unpredictable climate change-driven weather patterns.

 

The ranch also partners with organic farmers who raise green cover crops as grazing forage. Grazing cattle on these fields allows ranchers to increase soil carbon and improve soil structure, while also finishing the cattle on high-quality forage.

          The Pecker solution. Plus debt, growth, and the top excuse offered by Wall Street parasites.      Cache   Translate Page      
Lots of brief topics on debt and society and politics, this time, and if you make it to the end I promise something deeply thought-provoking for you economics wonks...but first a comment on the Bezos-Pecker ibroglio.

Jeff Bezos brought to life my decadal proposal that someone torch the foundation of all mafia empires - blackmail. I've long held that today's world is only explicable if hundreds, maybe thousands of powerful people are being blackmailed, each thinking he or she is all alone. (It's a top Kremlin tactic, going back to the czars.) I portrayed a gutsy politician shattering the dam (in a started novel) unleashing a flood of confession-revelations that save civilization. But sure, a rocket-building, SF-loving, unafraid zillionaire makes sense.
(The classic line: "You say you have negatives? Great! Print me some glossies please?)

Jeff should follow this fantastic essay with another, urging more of the blackmailed to come forth. As I describe here.

In fact, my old idea of a "Henchman's Prize" might lure out even more. Notice how this path doesn't just mean escape from the blackmailer's clutches. In Jeff's case, it leads to a kind of elevation and redemption. As I point out in an open letter to every new Latin American president who claims to want to end the cycles of graft, one speech - one declaration - could lift the monstrous cloud. Indeed, just a few weeks after I published my appeal to the new president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador hinted at something similar, without providing (alas) details.

Ah well, if no one will listen to me, well then perhaps the world will listen to the richest man in the planet. And yes, we do have (and desperately need) friends in Cloud City.

== Saving civilization from high debt and slow growth? ==

I confess an ulterior motive for praising this cogent article by Tim Morgan. It begins with daunting news -- it's not only in the developed world that prosperity growth has stalled. The fast-rising upper half of the developing world has been the engine of the world economy for 20+ years, but that boiler is apparently cooling. And when you lack growth, then the fast-rising rate of debt - fueling rentier asset bubbles and braking money velocity - becomes more than just a problem. It becomes a poison.
  
(To be clear, the Republican Party raved that Supply Side ("voodoo") tax gifts to the rich would both stimulate growth and reduce public debt. How many times must you prove 100% diametrically wrong before you lose credibility?)

Morgan is not without hope. There are ways to fix this, and they are rooted in what's worked ever-better for 200 years... entrepreneurial enterprise that is kept truly competitive by thoughtful-adaptive regulation that limits inevitable oligarchic cheating, of the sort that Adam Smith denounced and that our parents in the Greatest Generation wisely outlawed. And so we get to my favorite paragraph:

"The good news is that we’re not going into this new era wholly lacking in knowledge. The trick is to understand what that knowledge really is. Keynes teaches us how to manage demand – or can teach us this, so long as we don’t turn him into a cheerleader for ever bigger public spending. Likewise – if we can refrain from caricaturing him as a rabid advocate of unregulated and unscrupulous greed – Adam Smith tells us that competition, freely, fairly and transparently conducted, is the great engine of innovation. More humbly, or perhaps less theoretically, but surely more pertinently, experience tells us that the “mixed economy” of optimised private and public provision works far better than any extreme."

Several members of my blog community have linked to this, asking if I wrote it originally, so consistent is it with my own drums -- the study of Adam Smith and fiscally responsible Keynsianism, along with the spectacular success story of public investment in research, education, health and infrastructure, which can only be denied by the hysterically delusional.

No I didn't ghost write that -- (I lived in Britain for a couple of years, but would never spell "optimised" that way; shudder.) But I do recommend having a look. Tim Morgan continues:

"Going forward, we should anticipate the collapse of the “everything bubble” in asset prices, and should hope that we don’t, this time, go so far into economic denial as to think we can cure this with a purely financial “fix”. I’m fond of saying that “trying to fix an energy-based economy with financial fixes is like trying to cure an ailing pot-plant with a spanner”. We should understand popular concerns, which seem to point unequivocally towards a mixed economy, extensive redistribution and an economic nationalism that needs to be channelled, not simply vilified."
None of this will happen unless the last remaining Knowledge Castes who cling to the mad right finally acknowledge what the scientists, teachers, journalists, civil servants, skilled workers, and almost every fact-using profession - including the maligned "deep state" protectors - all know. That the worldwide mafia-commie-oligarchy axis is no friend of anything we value. They are the Olde Feudal Enemy of every type of freedom and progress. And it will take all of us to achieve what the Greatest Generation did, a whole human lifetime ago.

 Save civilization.

== Again, the greatest judo move Pelosi could pull... ==

While the reform package that will be passed by Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives consists of all good things that will help improve ethics, efficiency and fairness, it's still fairly minor stuff. Democrats should pass rules that really change the dynamic, like permanently giving some power to the minority! 

Why do this, when that minority party is Republican? Because Democrats will be out again, sooner or later, silenced and impotent... unless they set precedents now!

 My top proposal? Give every member of the House one subpoena per term, that can compel anyone to testify for 2 hours before a committee.

Sure, some GOPpers will use such a power to irritate and pursue grudges (virtually the only use to which they put subpoenas and hearings, when they were majority!) So? That means they'll be approving this minority right, institutionalizing it. (Maybe make that vow a necessary part of using their subpoenas.) But other Republican legislators will wait, hoping to use their one subpoena to benefit the home district. And why not? Pulling them away from their caucus is bad?

We've seen how the lack of such a minority power kept Congress from meaningfully exercising any meaningful oversight, when the only grownups (Democrats) had zero power to investigate anything at all. Envision how just 200 hours of such testimony, this last term, would have empowered Dems to apply accountability, even from a minority.

The crux: letting goppers vent blowhard-steam when they are in minority is a small price for letting demmies apply real accountability, when they have their minority turn.

It would also vest individual members with a measure of autonomy that might possibly lift their gaze from pure partisanship. 

It's one of several proposals in my FACT Act.


== The most fundamental lie of Wall Street Parasitism ==

Among the dumbest but most effective religious dogmas is the rationalization that Wall Street parasites provide a ‘valuable service’ in the “creation of liquidity, raising capital for growing businesses and determining proper price levels.” 

These are utter and diametrically-opposite-to-true lies, as shown in this article on the Evonomics site (where Adam Smith would be publishing, today.) But the essay doesn’t go far enough. The whole justification for Wall Street's “proper price arbitrage” excuse is actually insane on a basis of physics and biology… thermodynamics, in particular.

Dig it. All living things exist by creating pools of reduced entropy (their living bodies) by tapping a high quality energy flow to create order inside the body and export more entropy into the environment. Eventually that entropy departs as infrared that flows into space. (Idiotically blocking that outward drainage with greenhouse gas is a related-but-separate topic.) 

Now focus: it is energy GRADIENTS or downhill FLOWS of energy — the steeper the better — that living creatures use, the way differences in height power a water mill, or differences in heat propel a steam engine.

Plants turn the steep gradient of high quality sunlight into carbohydrates. Herbivores take the high concentrations in plant carbs and turn them into more herbivores. That packs-in concentrations carnivores can then access. Health comes when there are only a few such gradients, letting each one be steep enough for the plants-herbivores-carnivores to each thrive.

Oh, but sometimes parasites wedge in and tap these gradients, by sucking sap or blood, in effect making the flow more shallow. Look at a plant or animal afflicted by parasites and tell me it is healthy!  And yes, you are having the "aha!" moment right now. Because that's exactly what “proper-price-seeking” arbitrage or micro-trading of equities does to the “value” of a stock or commodity, making a million nibbles or cuts in order to flatten the slopes! While the parasite (trader/broker/HFT-program) sucks a little value each trade, the company or pension fund loses the gradient or value difference that its life depends upon.

Oh, but the parasites croon “see how the price differences (energy gradients) are flattening? It’s a gooood thing! A goood thing!” 


Surely you've seen how some wasps implant parasite eggs that make the cricket ignore its victimization? These are parasitic wasps. You are the cricket.

Maybe some of you have heard or seen this argument elsewhere… I never have, even though it utterly disproves the “proper price discovery” rationalization of Wall Street parasites. What I’ve described is a “contradiction of capitalism” far more deadly than any described by Marx. It’s why - in the words of Douglas Adams - these guys will be “first against the wall” when the revolution comes.

Oh, do you want to prevent a violent, French-Russian style Revolution? Want an American style generational reform instead? One that re-invigorates a flat-fair-competitive market economy? 

Well then these guys should be First Against The Wall.

== Finally... the China Dilemma ==

This is BY FAR the most important article you can read about China's leadership caste, by an Australian diplomat/journalist of immense insight. Join the site (free) in order to read it.

Follow this with my own insights, which dovetail with Garnaut's, but bring in Chinese PRC mythologies about central planning and AI.

What's missing from both analyses is the context of Xi's uneasy alliance with the other major, anti-western player... the Putinist-Mafia front, the arc that Vladimir Putin has built for a new Warsaw Pact, stretching from Moscow to Crimea, Ankara, Lataika, Beirut, Damascus, Baghdad to Tehran. It is a despotic swathe whose connecting tissue is not ideology -- the Russians are embryonic-czarist, Erdogan is Sunni, Assad is Alawite, and the Muktadists+Ayatollahs are Shiite. What's the connective tissue then?

The Saudis -- did you see Putin's gleeful high-five with Mohammed bin Salman, a few months ago? -- may be genuinely terrified of Iran... though I am starting to doubt it. They have every reason to join Putin. Why?

Because the common thread is an affiliation of mafia clans with wholly-owned national sovereignties. Ideology is not as important as snuffing out the rule of law. And especially a unified-shared loathing of one particular western innovation -- the non-governmental NGO.

In this context, the position of the Chinese clarifies. They share an allied goal of demolishing constitutionalism and rule of law and western confident individualism. 

At the same time, the Chinese do have an ideology and a Confucian sense of order. Moreover, they know that eventually they will have to confront these mafias. Moreover, the West is the source of all good things. It must be bled at a careful rate that keeps us too weak to interfere, but still laying golden eggs.

The Chinese also feel time is on their side. It is not on the side of the Mafias, who know they have this one decade to wreck us, or else all (for them) will be lost.

          Liberals to block opposition attempt to probe SNC-Lavalin affair      Cache   Translate Page      

OTTAWA—The Liberal government appears likely to block opposition efforts to probe allegations of political interference in the criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin, while insisting that discussions on the matter with former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould were above board.

Justin Trudeau’s government will not yet waive solicitor-client privilege, which would give Wilson-Raybould latitude to speak about the allegation, nor will it permit a parliamentary committee to proceed with its own investigation, the Star has learned.

Wilson-Raybould has remained silent since the Globe and Mail reported Thursday that senior officials in the Prime Minister’s Office pressed her to seek mediation instead of pursuing criminal charges against SNC-Lavalin.

The former justice minister — who was moved from her post in January — has refused to confirm or deny the allegations, saying she is bound by solicitor-client privilege.

A senior government official, speaking to the Star on the condition they not be named, said Saturday that the government will not waive the privilege — as demanded by opposition MPs — because SNC-Lavalin’s potential criminal trial remains before the courts. A second government source confirmed that the potential criminal trial, as well as SNC-Lavalin’s appeal of prosecutors’ denial of a mediation deal, makes waiving privilege unlikely.

Nor will the government agree to demands by the Conservatives and New Democrats for an emergency meeting of the Commons justice committee to summon Wilson-Raybould and Trudeau’s top political aides to testify publicly on the affair, the senior source said.

Opinion | Delacourt: Jody Wilson-Raybould’s silence over Trudeau’s SNC-Lavalin woes speaks volumes

Justice Minister David Lametti told CTV’s Question Period that he believes nothing about the affair so far merits an investigation.

“The prime minister has said that these allegations are false. We haven’t had any corroborating evidence there. There hasn’t been anything to my mind that justifies a committee investigation,” said Lametti, who is also on the listed of proposed witnesses.

Lisa Raitt, deputy Conservative leader, said she was “horrified” by Lametti’s claim that he had satisfied himself there was no improper influence based solely on the prime minister’s public statements.

“That’s insane … that’s not upholding the independence of the attorney general’s office,” Raitt said in an interview.

Any hint that of political interference in criminal prosecutions should spark an investigation into “what the hell happened,” she said.

“It’s a serious enough issue that this needs to have clear light on it and we need to understand exactly what happened,” said Raitt, MP for Milton and a lawyer.

She said the Conservatives will seek to pressure the Liberals to agree to the committee hearings, though she conceded the effort will likely be voted down.

Lametti was not available to speak Saturday. His spokesperson, David Taylor, said the minister will appear before the committee if called to testify. Wilson-Raybould, through a spokesperson, said she was unavailable for an interview.

From the initial hours after the allegations broke, Lametti has echoed the prime minister’s denial that no direction was given to Wilson-Raybould on the issue.

“We don’t know what evidence or facts he has. Maybe he has spoken to the people in the PMO. Maybe he has facts such that he is very confident in what he is saying,” said former Ontario attorney general Michael Bryant.

“Or he sees this as part of his political role and he doesn’t need to be quasi-judicial and independent,” Bryant said.

The justice minister also serves as Canada’s attorney general. The ministerial guide sets out the two roles for the cabinet post: The justice minister is responsible for federal laws and development of new policies and programs. The attorney general is chief law officer for the federal government and has responsibility to uphold the “Constitution, the rule of law, and respect for the independence of the courts.”

Trudeau has denied “allegations” that PMO officials put pressure on Wilson-Raybould to abandon criminal charges against SNC in favour of what’s called a “deferred prosecution agreement” — a new tool introduced by the Liberals last year that allows corporate wrongdoers to avoid a criminal trial in favour of fines and corporate governance reforms.

Montreal-based engineering company SNC-Lavalin has been facing criminal fraud and corruption charges based on allegations it paid millions in bribes to win government business in Libya between 2001 and 2011. It has argued that the individuals behind the charges have left the company and that punishment to the firm, resulting in a ban on government infrastructure contracts, would result in major job losses in Canada — and Quebec in particular.

Wilson-Raybould was involved in the internal debates about how to deal with the SNC situation last fall, the Prime Minister’s Office confirmed Saturday. A government source would not say at what level those discussions were held — whether with Trudeau’s entire cabinet, with a subcommittee, or informally between ministers. It’s not clear who initiated the discussions.

The PMO also confirmed that Gerald Butts, Trudeau’s principal secretary and close friend, discussed the matter with Wilson-Raybould in December 2018, but said Butts suggested Wilson-Raybould bring it up with Michael Wernick, the clerk of the Privy Council and Canada’s top bureaucrat.

The question of undue influence and political interference hinges on the nature of the discussions Wilson-Raybould had on the options for the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin.

Some discussions are permitted. The Privy Council’s rules for Open and accountable government state the attorney general may consult “cabinet colleagues … in order to fully assess the public policy considerations relevant to specific prosecutorial decisions.”

Craig Forcese, a law professor at the University of Ottawa, says that clear political advice is “one thing.”

“But a political executive ‘direction’ to the (attorney general) in a criminal justice matter would exceed” judicial standards and dictate that the attorney general refuse and resign, Forcese said.

“The murk lies where discussions fall short of ‘direction,’” he wrote in a blog post.

Bryant said the involvement of the prime minister’s aides — the very people he said have power over a minister’s political future — in such discussions would not be appropriate.

“It creates the perception and the reality that if she doesn’t do what they tell her to do, then there will be political consequences for her, and that means that you are politicizing the prosecution,” Bryant said in an interview Saturday.

“These are the most political animals in the country, the PMO … They advise the prime minister, who controls the fate of a cabinet minister,” said Bryant, who is now the executive director and general counsel for the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.

          British analyst: Venezuelan patriotism, Russian support will be crucial to defending Venezuela from US aggression      Cache   Translate Page      
03 February 2019
British political analyst says that Venezuelan patriotism and Russian support will be crucial to defending Venezuela from the aggression of the United States that is now intent on reasserting its authority in the international arena at the expense of the Venezuelan people after its defeat in Syria.
Dr. Marcus Papadopoulos’s remarks came during an interview with the Syria Times e-newspaper about the reasons behind Washington’s currently attempts to engineer a coup in Venezuela and how Caracas can prevent U.S. from reaching its goals.
“There is more than one reason behind Washington’s attempts to engineer a coup in Venezuela.  I hold the view that there are two key reasons accounting for America’s brazen act of aggression against Venezuela’s sovereignty, and that these are equal in significance to each other,” the analyst said.
He made it clear that one of the reasons for why the Americans are currently trying to overthrow the democratically elected president of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro is the fact that Venezuela’s oil industry is nationalised and Caracas pursues an independent foreign policy.
“This deprives American energy companies, such as ExxonMobil, from taking control of Venezuela’s energy sector and exploiting it for their own gains,” Dr. Papadopoulos added, asserting that the US has an unquenchable thirst for oil and has, historically, gone to monstrously criminal lengths to secure control of, and access to, the largest oil producing markets in the world, most notably in the Middle East.
“With Venezuela geographically situated in what is, traditionally speaking, America’s sphere of influence, policy-makers in Washington are determined to take control of the country’s oil and gas industry, even if this means using military force to do so, as the Americans did in Iraq,” the analyst stated.
He emphasized that Venezuela is a major energy player in global affairs since it is , according to some sources, home to the world’s largest crude-oil reserves, while the country also sits on one of the largest reserves of natural gas in the world.
The close relationship between Venezuela and Russia
The other reason accounting for the US’ interference in the Latin American country, concerns the close relationship between Venezuela and Russia, according to the analyst, who  indicated that for some 20 years now, Caracas and Moscow have cultivated intimate relations with each other in the political, economic and military spheres.
“Today, Russia is the leading supplier of military hardware to Venezuela, and late last year reports surfaced about Russian plans to construct an air base for itself on the Venezuela island of La Orchila which would host Russian strategic bombers capable of delivering nuclear payloads,” Dr. Papadopoulos said
He went on to say:
“The prospect of a Russian military base in Venezuela, and one that can accommodate Russian nuclear bombers, is something that the Americans will bitterly resist.  Whilst Russia is only responding to the increasingly dangerous presence of NATO on its western border, coupled with both the threatening American missile shield in Eastern Europe and Washington’s diabolical withdrawal from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, the US is determined that its tormenting behaviour on the international stage remains unimpeded hence why the Americans are trying to overthrow President Maduro and replace him with the pro-American puppet, Juan Guaido.”
The analyst stressed that a Venezuela led by the legally and electorally illegitimate Guaido would end political, economic and military co-operation with Russia and make the Latin American country, once again, subservient to the US.
In a response to a question about how Caracas can avoid a military confrontation with U.S, Dr. Papadopoulos said: “Russia is the only country that can either deter Washington from embarking on a military confrontation with Venezuela or indirectly defeat an American military campaign against Caracas, with the aim of overthrowing the legal government of President Maduro.”
“I draw a comparison with how Russia came to the aid of Cuba, following the Cuban Revolution, when the country was faced with imminent American military aggression with the objective of overthrowing Fidel Castro.  In that situation, Moscow ultimately ensured the survival of the Cuban Revolution and, with it, the independence and sovereignty of Cuba.  Russia will be all-important in defending Venezuela and the Venezuelan people from the clutches of Messrs. Trump and Bolton.”
Besides the essential support of Russia, both economically and militarily, the prowess of the National Bolivarian Armed Forces of Venezuela and the patriotism and fiercely independent nature of the Venezuelan people  are main obstacles for US quick military intervention against Caracas, as stated by Dr. Papadopoulos, who indicated that the US could ignite a war in Venezuela in which large parts of the Venezuela population and the economic infrastructure of the country are consumed by a fireball.
U.S. has no moral compunction in starting a war
“The US has no moral compunction in starting a war – either through an invasion or a bombing campaign, or through supporting illegally armed groups – so as to seize control of a country’s economic and military infrastructure and impose a compliant government in the country’s capital. Washington rained down death and destruction on Syria but the Syrian people, aided by Russia, thwarted American ambitions in the country.  Because of their defeat in Syria, the Americans are angry – very, very angry, and are now intent on reasserting their authority in the international arena at the expense of the Venezuelan people.  So the world could, at some point, be witness to Washington raining down death and destruction on Venezuela and its people,” the analyst affirmed.
He, in addition, made it clear that economic sanctions are one of the most potent weapons in the US’ armoury hence the Venezuelan Government could be vulnerable to Washington’s endeavours to instigate a coup through economic strangulation of Venezuela’s economy.
“However, providing that Venezuela still keeps producing and selling oil and gas, and providing that Moscow is able to economically assist Caracas, then Venezuela stands a reasonably good chance of prevailing against American aggression,” concluded, Dr. Papadopoulos, the founder and editor of Politics First magazine.
On January, 24, 2019, an open letter- signed by 70 scholars and Latin America, political science, and history as well as filmmakers, civil society leaders, and other experts- was issued in opposition to ongoing intervention by the United States in Venezuela.
The letter underlined that actions by the Trump administration and its allies in the hemisphere are almost certain to make the situation in Venezuela worse, leading to unnecessary human suffering, violence, and instability.

CA vs the EU? Yes it is. In CA's central valley people have no major airports near them, so they drive to either SF or to an airport in LA County, the EU has had passenger trains since at least the end of WWII, major airports in France? Just 5, unlike in the US Europe did not abandon passenger rail, so Apples to Oranges, the equivalent of fwys didn't start in France until about 1960 and they were Toll roads. Maybe it did not stop driving, but it is not quite the same as here, as HSR did slow it down and is good for the environment(I have a merit badge in Environmental Science). In any case CA will get more money for HSR from the Democratic House as the House has an Infrastructure Bill and HSR is a part of it, so Billions most likely will be coming our way, HSR is far from dead and Amtrak is being asked to stop in More towns. For those areas where trains don't or can't go, electric automobiles will be just fine. https://www.bing.com/search?pc=IC07&ptag=ICO-089ec2f9&FORM=INCOH1&q=major+airports+in+France https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autoroutes_of_France

          Comment on High Speed Rail Will Take People out of Electric Cars? by LazyReader      Cache   Translate Page      
High speed rail hasn't taken anyone out of cars. High speed rail has not reduced or curtailed auto or air travel usage. The European Union publishes data showing modal split between buses, cars, and trains going back to 1990. The numbers show that high-speed trains often cut into buses’ share of travel, but not cars. For the EU as a whole, rail’s share grew from 7.2% in 2000 to 7.7% in 2016, while auto’s share grew from 82.4 to 82.9% and buses ate the difference, dropping from 10.4 to 9.4%. If we assume that high-speed rail’s share of total rail travel has grown from 25% in 2006 to 33 % in 2016, that means high-speed trains only account for about 2.6 % of surface travel in Europe, or less than 2.4% when air travel is included. In short, European high-speed trains get most of their riders from the former low-speed trains they operated; and from buses. This is also true in Asia. In the US modal share; there is virtually no low-speed train riders and few bus riders for said high-speed trains to capture. Real transportation innovations are issues of convenience, cost or speed. Trains supposedly occupy this "Sweet spot" between 50-250 miles that regular transportation cant accommodate that maybe true in Dense old urban places like New York-Boston or Tokyo-Osaka. But A 200-mph train doesn’t do much good if it is inconvenient and costly. A 550-mph airplane is far more economical because it requires less infrastructure and is faster across distances, while a 60-mph car is both economical and convenient. New technologies will compete only if they are more economical and either faster or more convenient. Trains meet none of these criteria. Buses are cheaper, cars more convenient and planes are faster.

Thanks for the link to that article. A relevant quote: "With limited resources — and resources are always limited — transit agencies should exhaust all of the cheapest fixes before heading toward the more expensive “concrete” options like digging new tunnels and laying more track." Building out our transportation infrastructure will help, but first we need to figure out how someone from Redwood City can travel to Oakland on one ticket instead of four. That can be accomplished without pouring any concrete.

          Ellen Brown - The Venezuela Myth Keeping Us From Transforming Our Economy      Cache   Translate Page      
Some critics of MMT say it will create inflation, like 'money printing' has done in Venezuela, but Ellen Brown explains why this isn't the case.

Venezuela’s problems are not the result of the government issuing money and using it to hire people to build infrastructure, provide essential services and expand economic development. If it were, unemployment would not be at 33 percent and climbing. Venezuela has a problem that the US does not have and will never have: it owes massive debts in a currency it cannot print itself, namely US dollars. When oil (its principal resource) was booming, Venezuela was able to meet its repayment schedule. But when oil plummeted, the government was reduced to printing Venezuelan Bolivars and selling them for US dollars on international currency exchanges. As speculators drove up the price of dollars, more and more printing was required by the government, massively deflating the national currency.
It was the same problem suffered by Weimar Germany and Zimbabwe, the two classic examples of hyperinflation typically raised to silence proponents of government expansion of the money supply before Venezuela suffered the same fate. Prof. Michael Hudson, an economic rock star who supports MMT principles, has studied the hyperinflation question extensively. He confirms that those disasters were not due to governments issuing money to stimulate the economy. Rather, he writes, “Every hyperinflation in history has been caused by foreign debt service collapsing the exchange rate. The problem almost always has resulted from wartime foreign currency strains, not domestic spending.”

Although Venezuela is not technically at war, it is suffering from foreign currency strains triggered by aggressive attacks by a foreign power. US economic sanctions have been going on for years, causing at least $20 billion in losses to the country. About $7 billion of its assets are now being held hostage by the US, which has waged an undeclared war against Venezuela ever since George W. Bush’s failed military coup against President Hugo Chavez in 2002. Chavez boldly announced the “Bolivarian Revolution,” a series of economic and social reforms that dramatically reduced poverty and illiteracy and improved health and living conditions for millions of Venezuelans. The reforms, which included nationalizing key components of the nation’s economy, made Chavez a hero to millions of people and the enemy of Venezuela’s oligarchs.

Some of the biggest challenges our society faces are related to climate change and the impact this will have on the environment and on our own activities. The increasing concentration of the greenhouse gases is a prominent driver of a changing climate, but the extent of their impacts is sector dependent and generally more difficult to characterise. In order to build a climate proof society, we need to improve the way in which climate datasets are processed and used to inform decisions in different businesses and societal sectors. The Copernicus climate change service (C3S) has been developed to meet these needs, aiming at supporting policymakers, businesses and citizens through the provision of high-quality usable information. The Service consolidates many years of preparatory research and development and delivers through the Climate data store a long list of quality-controlled and operationally-produced climate relevant datasets. This ITT is about setting up and demonstrating downstream applications, known as “Demo-Cases”, using one or more of the C3S products as input. It aims at demonstrating the full potential of the C3S infrastructure, including the diverse set of datasets in the CDS catalogue and the CDS toolbox. This ITT will facilitate the creation of indicators, tools and visualisations that do not necessarily have a sustainable business case, but are excellent communication tools and will show-case the CDS and, hence, increase uptake. ECMWF expects that individual bids in the range between 50 000 and 150 000 EUR will be adequate to achieve the objectives of this call, depending on the scope of the proposed demo case. Nevertheless, ECMWF may consider bids outside of that range if duly justified by the bidder. The ITT call is open to all demo-cases addressing any societal sector and C3S products. Notwithstanding the above, ECMWF is looking forward selecting a number of proposals related to data visualization and scientific communication through the arts, as they offer a strong potential to enhance the uptake of the C3S service with wide communities. Please see Volume I (Instructions and Conditions) of the ITT documents Please see Volume V (Contract for Procurement - Services for Copernicus) of the ITT documents ECMWF will only enter into a contract with a single legal person/entity. Due to the need to include performance and compliance obligations in the contract, ECMWF will contract only with a single legal person or entity which is competent to undertake and commit to these obligations. ECMWF recognises that some bids will involve a number of organisations which may wish to work together to deliver the contract requirements. In such cases, these organisations must identify a lead contractor who will sign the contract with ECMWF and who will be responsible for putting in place legal arrangements to ensure that it can guarantee that all other organisations will also meet the contract obligations. ECMWF will not enter into multiple contracts with individual members of consortia or groups of service providers. See Volume V (Contract for procurement — Services for Copernicus) and Volume II (Specification) of the ITT documents. Tenders will not be eligible unless they are submitted by persons or entities based or registered in a member state of the EU or in a member state of ECMWF. Tenderers must complete the online questionnaire in ECMWF's eProcurement Portal.

In submitting this notice ECMWF does not waive the privileges and immunities granted to it by virtue of its status as an Intergovernmental Organisation or submit itself to any jurisdiction. Tenders must be submitted using ECMWF’s eProcurement Portal as described in Volume I of the ITT documents. Hard copy (paper) submissions will not be accepted. This is a rolling Invitation to Tender, whereby bids will be evaluated on a quarterly basis, with closing dates every three months (14.9.2018, 14.12.2018, 14.3.2019, 14.6.2019), when bids submitted during the previous calendar quarter will be evaluated. Bidders will be informed about the outcome of the evaluation within six weeks following each closing date. Reminders on the evaluation dates will be posted on the C3S website (https://climate.copernicus.eu/) at regular points in time. As an outcome of each quarterly evaluation, bids will be either selected for negotiations in that round, rejected, or included in a reserve list for future consideration. 6 weeks upon each evaluation date, ECMWF will update the C3S website with an overview of the sectors and C3S products for which a use-case has been selected.

"Technical Assistance for Alternative Fuels and Energy Efficient Mobility Systems"
February 7, 2019


BACKGROUND
Fleets across the nation have made great progress implementing alternative fuels, advanced vehicles, and fuel-saving measures into their operations. These efforts have reduced costs and earned fleets recognition as sustainability leaders in the process. Yet as the alternative fuel, advanced vehicle and smart mobility landscape evolves, some fleets may encounter challenges.

To address these challenges, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL's) Transportation and Hydrogen Systems Center (THSC) supports U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Vehicle Technology Office programs by offering technical assistance which connects transportation stakeholders with objective information and experts to assist with overcoming specific problems and barriers related to alternative fuels, fuel efficient technologies, and emerging transportation and smart mobility technologies. Through trusted, unbiased and time-tested resources, NREL has become a leader in providing technical assistance and in helping fleets and fuel providers solve problems and successfully transition to alternative fuels and vehicles which serve a growing market. NREL continues to support the entry of new transportation technologies into the marketplace and create new resources that address the evolving challenges that fleets are facing.

Providing unbiased technical information, tools, and resources is a requirement of several pieces of federal legislation, including the Alternative Motor Fuels Act (AMFA) of 1988, the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, and the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 1992 and 1995. In order to be effective, NREL must be able to provide technical assistance for:

• Technology Evaluation and Analysis
• Codes and Standards
• Troubleshooting, Root Cause Analysis, and Safety Issues

The projects undertaken are broad and diverse and will help solve problems, overcome barriers and accelerate the rate of adoption of alternative fuels, fuel efficient technologies and energy efficient mobility systems into the transportation mainstream.

OBJECTIVE
NREL is seeking one or more organizations with broad knowledge of fleet operations, to assist with addressing barriers, problem resolution and education about alternative fuels, fuel efficient technologies and energy efficient mobility systems. These organizations shall have the required practical expertise, strong collaborative abilities, and communications skills to provide the needed technical assistance.

These organizations, when authorized by the NREL Technical Monitor (TM) in specific negotiated work orders, shall be utilized as technical advisors to those requesting assistance through NREL and shall help to resolve technical issues related to:

          Comment on Booming Beacon by Kelly Ellenwood      Cache   Translate Page      
People are interested in moving to Beacon, and up until this development happened, there was nowhere for them to move to. At one point, Beacon had a less than 1 percent vacancy rate. Prices rose. Supply and demand. Now, with more places to live, prices should stabilize, at least through the next economic cycle. Beacon is better than ever! It's still lovely, quirky and awesome; and now there will be tax income to fix infrastructure and to bring Beacon up to speed. There is now a possibility of economic development and good paying jobs. I'm optimistic. I love living here; I love our community. Overall, I believe that there is a lot more positive than negative generated by the development detailed in this article.
          Comment on Letter: Bridge Bottleneck by Gregg Zuman      Cache   Translate Page      
Why ease access for more and more vehicles to our congested local roadway system when we can alleviate regional commuter issues with low-cost, system-level solutions at the ready? The bottleneck issue on Route 9D between the Metro-North Beacon station and the access roads to the Hamilton Fish bridge seems driven by the increasing numbers of vehicles operated by commuters moving over the bridge on a daily basis. Instead of jamming more commuter vehicles on a multipurpose bridge, our leaders must ferry these commuters between the Beacon train station and the other side of the Hudson. The Beacon-Newburgh ferry must become a linchpin of our regional conveyance infrastructure, as it historically has been for centuries. A quick shot across the Hudson for thousands of commuters leverages the best -- and cheapest -- assets our region has to offer while moving commuters about the area in the most effective manner available. In fact, a relatively small investment by the state to pay fully for robust ferry service will free up pathways new and old throughout the entire region, taking our local economy to another level of activity as well.

          Cory Booker believes 'Green New Deal' akin to fighting Nazis, landing on the moon      Cache   Translate Page      


During a campaign event in Mason City, Iowa, on Friday, Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) compared the "Green New Deal" to fighting Nazis and landing on the moon.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) introduced the non-binding Green New Deal resolution on Thursday. Booker and several other lawmakers co-sponsored the resolution, which is touted as a way to fight climate change.

What did he say?

Approving the Green New Deal would represent a "bold" move in America, which has a history of saving the planet, according to Booker.

"We have to deal with this," Booker said. "…Our planet is in peril and we need to be bold. That's one of the reasons I co-signed onto the resolution, and co-sponsored the resolution."

In a YouTube video of his presentation Booker said: "When the planet has been imperiled in the past, who came forward to save Earth from the scourge of Nazis and totalitarian regimes? We came forward. Who came forward to save the planet, or continents, from financial ruin? We came forward with the Marshall Plan."

"Our history is standing up and saying, 'Look, humanity is in crisis, America is going to be light and the hope."

The Green New Deal would ban nearly every form of energy the nation currently uses, including oil, nuclear power and natural gas. Specifically, the plan calls for a "full transition off fossil fuels and zero greenhouse gases."

What about carbon taxes? Well, they're not out of the question. According to a document that was briefly posted on Ocasio-Cortez's website and later pulled down:

So we're not ruling a carbon tax out, but a carbon tax would be a tiny part of a Green New Deal in the face of the gigantic expansion of our productive economy and would have to be preceded by first creating the solutions necessary so that workers and working class communities are not affected. While a carbon tax may be a part of the Green New Deal, it misses the point and would be off the table unless we create the clean, affordable options first.

The plan would also tear down or gut virtually every building in America, supposedly to bring it into compliance with new energy efficiency standards.

Additionally, the plan calls for high-speed rail to replace air travel, which would be deemed obsolete.

The proposal claims that after gutting a huge chunk of the nation's infrastructure, the government would be able to offer jobs or a guaranteed income for people who don't want to work along with a host of other freebies.

He admitted that a lot of people are now backtracking on the proposal by saying it's too expensive or impractical.

Does he believe this is a 'dream?'

But we can't "govern our dreams" that way, Booker said.

If that were the case, he said, "we would have never gone to the moon."

"See that ball in the sky? That's impractical," Booker said. "We are a nation that has done impossible things before."

           Comment on The CIS and social democracy by Ken Fabian       Cache   Translate Page      
If I am a socialists then I am probably closer to the version that shares my name - Fabian socialism, that works within the rule of law and democratic processes. Which tends to reduce the scope of radical change - but I think, establishes it more effectively when it succeeds. The social democratic deal like the Nordic nation's developed, arose within democracies and the rule of law. Most of the egregious examples of socialism were never democratic - and the rule of (independent) law was weak or non-existent. Few people in Nordic nations believe their governments are socialist but they also don't put wealth and power above the rule of law - or promote them to the position of making the rules of law. I'm not convinced any of the non-democratic versions of what gets called socialism - established coups/revolutions violently taking over and opposition suppressed - can serve as genuine examples, any more than dictatorships that espouse free-market ideologies are real examples of capitalism. I think it is the legal systems - common and civil law, with independence of the judiciary - rather than the extent of government ownership or control or support of various economic activities that have been the greatest strength of nations like ours. The extraordinary successes of 'capitalist' enterprises have depended on them. I tend to see the opportunities that businesses take advantage of are in large part created by good government that did not stint on education or health or basic infrastructure or minimum wages - that these capitalist opportunities are not purely the result of entrepreneurship and capitalism, and so should not hog all the profits from taking advantage of them. Entrepreneurship and leadership are still highly rewarded within social democracies but many factors apart from those contribute to their economic success. I see an ongoing intergenerational subsidy to businesses from social programs - that they themselves will, without thinking, seek to avoid contributing to; giving captains of commerce and industry what they think they want in the short run will not produce the results they expect in the long run. So long as investing in the social good is inhibited by an unthinking belief that taxation and regulation or government provided services cost more than the reduced opportunities from their absence is questionable.

          Indian infrastructure: Time to refocus on the basics      Cache   Translate Page      

With 2019 underway, it would serve us well to look at some of the most pressing needs of Indian infrastructure. Trends in global capital markets and the needs of Indian infrastructure have broadly remained the same, but so have the challenges.

Recent news that the euro 399 billion Dutch pension fund ABP has lowered the expected investment returns over the next 10-15 years at five per cent a year on average from the earlier six per cent (Investment & Pensions Europe) shows the pressure the global pension fund community is under to deliver investment returns.

Additionally, a quick look at the Q4 2018 report of another Dutch pension fund, PFZW, shows a reduction in the current funding ratio from 103.4 per cent to 97.5 per cent. In layman's terms, the value of current and future outflows from PFZW is higher than the value of the assets.

The data yet again drives home the point that in the face of constrained investment returns, the demand for annuity-type structures is even higher amongst the global capital providers.

While India has been aware of these trends and has made a concerted effort towards facilitating the flow of capital, now is the time to further provide impetus to the idea of "utilising global capital towards building Indian infrastructure". The agenda for 2019 must be to build on and deal with issues that have slowed infrastructure creation in India. The core issues that need attention remain the same - local market funding to facilitate foreign capital inflows, a more efficient land acquisition strategy, better linkages in policies across infrastructure segments and, to the extent possible, allowing market prices to prevail.

India needs to find a better solution towards providing local market credit to infrastructure projects to facilitate foreign capital inflows. For a capital provider, it is vital that local players partake in the risk-taking regarding infrastructure projects.

While Indian banks have cut back from infrastructure lending, a complete pullback is not feasible given the size of the balance sheets that banks wield and given the infrastructure funding requirements. The key for banks is prudent risk management and effective project selection. Additionally, other local funding sources such as the National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF) and revamped Development Finance Institution type structures will be crucial.

The fundamental reason why local funding in infrastructure projects gives foreign investors greater confidence is that knowing local capital has "skin in the game" implies more protection for their money.

Land acquisition remains a significant challenge for infrastructure creation. Recent issues that specific solar projects faced with getting access to land further elucidates this fact. The critical step here is to gradually tie-up land allocation and project allocation through the sector-specific agencies at work.

Bundling project and land allocation implies that for instance, when solar tenders are allocated, the planning on the associated land required is done concurrently with the tender and not after the tender process. While the issue around land acquisition is complex, land is the most crucial component of infrastructure creation in possibly every segment. Therefore, urgent attention is due.

Co-operation within infrastructure segments, especially through policies that consider sectoral interlinkages is crucial for the infrastructure ecosystem to deliver value. Power generation adds value when transmission and distribution assets can assist in giving the power to end users. Biofuels can add value when the water required to generate the raw material for them does not impede other more critical water needs in an economy.

Continually asking questions and ensuring that policy consistency is maintained across interlinked infrastructure sectors is the only way for infrastructure to indeed create value for all.

While infrastructure assets vary significantly on the level of regulatory purview, it is essential that regulations are prudently used and do not stifle risk-taking and value creation. Asset returns need to be adequate to compensate for the risks involved to get both global and local capital to fund Indian infrastructure. Therefore, it is essential that greater focus is paid to tariff pricing, especially to the drivers of tariff rates. One size fits all solutions will lead to inefficient outcomes in the long-run.

Now is the time to further push forward with policies that can help further facilitate the flow of capital into Indian infrastructure. It is also essential to realise that such changes are gradual, small iterations in the right direction can have significant positive lasting effects.

          By 2020 or 2021 we will accomplish PM’s dream of giving house to everyone: Devendra Fadnavis      Cache   Translate Page      

Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday assured the people of the state that by 2020 or 2021 he will fulfil Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of providing each person with a house.

Addressing an event here, Fadnavis said: “We will accomplish the dream of our PM and give a house to every single person in Maharashtra. We have created history in the construction of toilets.”

Speaking about the interim budget presented by Union Finance Minister Piyush Goyal on February 1, Fadnavis said: “We should consider this budget as a full-fledged budget and not an interim budget. Very tough structural reforms have been carried out.”

Lauding the budget the minister added, “The difference is that this may be an interim budget but it has also chalked out a way towards making India a 10 trillion economy by 2030. Rs. 450 crore were procured in 15 years while we have procured Rs. 8,500 crore in just 3 years.”

Elaborating upon the government’s plan, Fadnavis stated that the government is focused on keeping sustainability in the agricultural sector.

“The amount of roads has gone up, there is no unman railway crossing, the entire infrastructure is growing,” he added.

They need to rip up the tracks, remove the overhead wires, and bring in equipment to dig down to the pipe. You can't run "reduced service" when the infrastructure itself is gone.

A new defensive line of 76 watchtowers and patrol bases has been completed along Lebanon's border with Syria, which the UK's ambassador to the country says is vital to prevent terrorists from reaching Europe. The improved border security was funded by the British government and will also help stabilise Lebanon from the conflict next door. Britain's support to Lebanon's army in the fight against Islamic State (IS) extremism has enabled the state to not only defeat the terrorists but also secure the northern and eastern border with Syria for the first time in its history. The UK has spent more than £62m in support, infrastructure and training for the Lebanese armed forces.

          Los Angeles Seeing 2019 Traffic Boost      Cache   Translate Page      

Published in: Cruise News

The 2018-built Norwegian Bliss made her debut in Los Angeles in May.

The Port of Los Angeles is expecting a nice bump in traffic in 2019, with the Norwegian Bliss back for a second straight year, joined by the Norwegian Joy as well as the Royal Princess.               

“Ships are going into Alaska and there is no doubt that is what is driving this,” said Chris Chase, marketing manager. “The Mexican market is still getting back on its feet, but is doing well.”

With new ships in Alaska, Los Angeles is able to capitalize on the shoulder seasons, with ships sailing from the port to the Mexican Riviera, or offering longer cruises to Hawaii.

"It’s very positive and we are excited,” Chase said. “The last decade has not been kind. It’s great to have these guys looking back in our direction again, and taking advantage of what we have to offer; the improvement in security in Mexico has helped quite a bit.”

The port recently finished a big upgrade on its shorepower system for larger ships. Any significant terminal investments would have to come with a long-term commitment from a cruise line.

“We don’t have the business case to invest  for just a couple of ship calls,” Chase said. “We are looking at opportunities where we can expand and grow more.”           

Nevertheless, the port has the infrastructure and navigation merits to handle any cruise ship size, Chase said.

LNG is also around the corner, as the port’s regular Hawaii  cargo service will implement the fuel starting in 2020, and will most likely bunker by truck.

More ships in Alaska will drive seasonal business for Los Angeles, but Chase has his eye on more.

“We are open in the summer,” he said. “We would love to see more vessels calling in the summer. For 20 years we had short cruises, three and four days. Carnival is doing that now out of Long Beach and there is an opportunity for that market.          

“Princess and Norwegian have brought a lot of attention back to the market, which is a positive thing.”

          TechEd for Novices, 2012 Edition      Cache   Translate Page      

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/archive/2012/02/24/teched-for-novices-2012-edition.aspx

In 2007, Microsoft created a "Tips for the Newbie" page for TechEd (which is apparently no longer available) and I created a follow-on post called Tech·Ed for Novices. I created a similar post in 2008  as well. With TechEd 2012 around the corner, I thought it would be good to bring it back.

TechEd is a huge event, topping out at over 14000 people (usually), with an equally huge amount of content. This post is designed to give first time TechEd attendees a fighting chance of finding their way around. (As Microsoft updates the content catalog, I’ll make sure this post is kept up to date with any change to session types, etc.)

Session Types

There are over six different session types available at Tech·Ed and each one is very different, so it is up to your individual learning style to decide which ones will be better. The problem is, what are the differences?

Birds of a Feather (BOF)

The Birds of a Feather sessions are not presentations, they are a moderated open-forum environment that promotes discussion and interaction. Because these sessions are led by third-party experts, attendees enjoy free-flowing dialogues about products, technologies, and solutions without necessarily focusing on Microsoft. They are generally fairly small in number, around 20 people or so, but that is an average.  These sessions are organized and facilitated by INETA.

Breakout Session

Breakout sessions are what everyone probably thinks of when they think of a convention like this. These are the speaker-lead presentations. They are usually not very interactive (except for a Question and Answer period at the end) and are a great way to learn about new technologies from some of the industries leading experts. These are the most common type of session you will probably be attending.

Hands-on Lab

The Hands-on Labs are self-paced technical labs. They are a great way to get direct access to the technologies being presented at the conference and "play". The labs come with a lab manual and additional resources about the topic as well as lab assistants to help you out if you run into a problem.

Instructor Led Lab/Workshop

Instructor Led Labs (or Workshops) are just like the Hands-on Labs, except you have an instructor to help walk you through the lab, answer technical questions and provide some level of interaction. All of the instructors for the Instructor Led Labs are Microsoft Certified Trainers (MCTs), so you can be assured that you are in capable hands.

Interactive Theater

The Interactive Theaters are probably not what you might expect. If you plan on going to one, get there early as they fill up quickly. These are very interactive, very informal discussions on a particular topic by someone who is usually very knowledgeable about that topic. These are an excellent way to get some very good, detailed information about a topic.

Lunch Session

Lunch sessions, as their name implies, occur during the lunch break and are usually an interactive discussion about a topic. They are a little more formalized than the Birds of a Feather sessions, but not quiet as interactive as the Theater sessions.

Building Your Schedule

While Microsoft generally considers the "Communications Network", also known as CommNet, as the place to start for TechEd, I think the place to start is with the online schedule builder before you get to the event. Hopefully the schedule builder will get a much needed overhaul to make it more user-friendly, similar to the current Content Catalog, but we won’t know until it’s available.

No matter what, the point is that you need to have an idea of what sessions you are going to before you get there. There are 12 technical tracks, making it difficult to figure out what is important. Fortunately, Microsoft provides a summary of the track content to help you focus on which tracks are important to you.

The thing to realize about the tracks is that they are a way to group session content on a large scale. Sessions can, and often do, cross multiple tracks and sessions aren't always in the track you might expect. As a result, don't try to focus on any one track and only go to sessions in that track. It's a good starting point, but that's it.

For example. if you are a solutions architect (or any kind of technical architect), chances are that the majority of your sessions will fall under the "Architecture & Practices" track, but that doesn't mean there won't be sessions in the "Developer Tools, Languages & Frameworks" track or the "Windows Azure" track that aren't important.

The other thing to understand about the tracks is that they are only useful if you want sessions covering a broad (or high-level) technology category. If you want information specific to a certain technology, such as Smart Clients, you will need to spend some extra time looking at each of the tracks and finding the sessions that are relevant.

Deciding on your sessions

Deciding on sessions is not a trivial task and can take at least several hours. When picking sessions, don't choose them based solely on what your employer has you working on. That's right, just because they are paying for you to go does not mean that you should restrict your sessions to what you think is important to them or your current project. Now, I'm not saying you should completely ignore it, either. Usually you're working there (and on that project) because your technical interests and skills match to some degree. If there is a technology that you are using that you feel you need more in-depth information about, then pick some sessions about it. Just remember to also pick sessions that are going to be interesting to you and help you in the long-run of your career. If you don't have any interest in the topic and are going to the session only because your employer told you to (or you think it's what they want you to go to) you aren't going to enjoy the experience and you won't get a whole lot out of it.

Don't forget that some of the sessions repeat on a different day. If the session is going to be repeated the first session should say "Repeated on xxxx" (where xxxx is the day) and the repeat session should say "Repeated from xxxx". The other indicator is that the session "code" for the repeated session should have an "R" at the end of it.

Session Codes

While we're talking about session codes, you should realize that they are just as important as the session titles and descriptions; they give you the "quick glance" way to see some basic information about the session. (Since the session builder isn’t available yet, I don’t know if this information is still correct. Once the session builder is available I should be able to confirm and correct anything here that needs it.)

The session code has the following format:

AAALLL[R][-SSS]

where

AAA: Technical Track (abbreviated)

LLL: Technical Level

[R]: The actual character "R", only present if the session is a repeat session

[-SSS]: The session (delivery) type. This is the actual "-" character followed by the 3 letter session type abbreviation. Remember, if it doesn't have one then it's most likely a breakout session.

The technical tracks all have a 3 letter abbreviation, which allows you to easily see what track a session belongs to. Remember, sessions can repeat across tracks, but they are assigned only one code. What this means is that the primary track (usually the one listed first) is the one whose code is used, so you may see SOA sessions in the SFT track.

There are two exceptions to this rule for the following session types:

  • Birds of a Feather - BOF
  • Lunch Session - LNC

The technical level is broken down by difficulty and is:

  • 200 - Intermediate
  • 300 - Experienced
  • 400 - Advanced

In reality, only the first number (2, 3, or 4) is important here. The rest of the number is just a sequential number that has no useful meaning (at least to us). Even though some of the other session types also have a technical level associated with them, this level is only used in the session code for Breakout sessions. The rest of the sessions just use a straight sequential number.

The session (or delivery) type is only listed if the session is not a breakout session. The session types are:

  • Hands-on Lab - HOL
  • Instructor Led Lab - ILL
  • Interactive Theater - TLC

Creating your calendar

Just because cloning isn't feasible and you can't be in two places at once doesn't mean you can't schedule multiple sessions at the same time. The best way to build your calendar is to do it in steps.

The first step should be all of the sessions you have an interest in. Don't worry if there is a lot of overlap. My own schedule usually has at least 3 sessions in most of the time slots. The goal here is to get all of the sessions you are interested in put on the calendar.

The second step is to look at each time slot and prioritize the sessions. If you are using Outlook, you can do this using the color categories. The idea here is that you want to rank the sessions in order of priority interest to you. The ones you most want to attend should be green, second most would be yellow, and third (or more) should be unmarked. This is a great way to see where your interests are heading and helps narrow the field.

It's alright to end up with multiple priority 1 sessions at the same time. Your schedule is not set in stone and it will change. Leading up to the event, Microsoft is still adding sessions and once the conference starts sessions will be canceled, rescheduled and repeat sessions will be added.

Communications Network (CommNet)

No, this isn't like SkyNet (from the Terminator movies or the UK), but it is the central hub for everything that is going on at TechEd. In order to log in, you will need to use the same user name and password that you were given by Microsoft when you registered. (This is the same one you use to access the online schedule builder tool.)

CommNet gives you key logistical information about the conference:

  • conference agenda
  • floor plans
  • bus shuttle schedules
  • city highlights
  • session schedule

At the end of each session, you will be asked to fill out an evaluation survey for the chance to win...something. You do this through CommNet. You can also download presentation materials for your session ahead of time (and sometimes after the session as well). Not all of the sessions get their content up before the session, so you will have to keep checking.

Wireless Internet Access

If you have a laptop or mobile device equipped with 802.11a/b/g/n wireless, then you can connect to the Internet throughout most of the convention center. Microsoft has Wireless Help Desks set up throughout the convention center to help configure your laptop or mobile device if you run into problems. Remember, the wireless network is an open, shared network, so there are no security protocols (WPA, WEP, etc.) enabled. Treat this just like you would any other public wireless network.

To be safe, follow the following steps:

  • Install all Microsoft critical patches and updates for your operating system. Visit www.update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate
  • Download and install the latest anti-virus signatures for your software
  • If you suspect that your system is not properly patched, visit the wireless help desk PRIOR to connecting to the network
  • Ensure that your personal firewall software is active
  • Ensure that your system is set to infrastructure wireless use only and is not associating to, or broadcasting, ad-hoc networks
  • Monitor your connections—do not connect to the wireless and wired networks at the same time

myTechEd

myTechEdLogo[1]

In 2007, Microsoft introduced Virtual Tech·Ed, which was the "one-stop" shop to extend the TechEd experience before, during, and after the event. This has subsequently been replaced by myTechEd, which has both an online portal and a Windows Phone app (if you don’t have a Windows Phone (you should get one!) you can use the myTechEd Mobile Web site. Using myTechEd, you can quickly:

  • Identify other attendees with whom you would like to meet
  • Share information about yourself and your background
  • Schedule meetings that will take place during the conference.

Dealing with the Information Overload

As you can see, there is a ton of information and it can be quite overwhelming for the novice attendee (and even some veterans). The best way to deal with the information overload is to:

  • Plan your schedule so you are going to sessions that you have an interest in.
  • Try to break up the content type, don't do just breakout sessions. Try some Hands-on or Instructor Led Labs, Birds of a Feather sessions, or the Interactive Theaters.
  • Don't worry about missing a session. The sessions are usually available online after the conference ends.
  • Hit the exhibit hall. It's a great way to relax between sessions and find out what other companies are working on or what's new from your favorite company. Yes, you will end up getting your badge scanned and probably have to deal with sales calls afterwards, but it can be worth it.
  • Take advantage of the free food. One thing that TechEd is known for is the extreme amount of snacks provided.
  • Go to the Jam Sessions and the event party. They are worth it. I make it a point to go each year and usually bring my family to it. Having them around helps decompress at the end of the day and gives them a nice mini-vacation.

In the end, enjoy the conference. It's a great way to get some excellent technical information and some excellent networking opportunities.

          India’s employment scenario: Understanding the true picture      Cache   Translate Page      
A sound policy framework requires the support of robust institutions that collect and transmit good data regularly. I am a great believer in robust data being essential in diagnosing the right problem to target and to devise smart solutions for it. In the context of the ongoing debate on India’s employment scenario, we need to make efforts to improve the availability of quality data so that a narrative driven debate can be resolved through objective evidence. Currently there are three contesting narratives. First narrative is of jobless growth implies that India is creating insufficient jobs. Second is opposite to first one and advocates that there is no issue of employment. Third, which I believe to be true, is between the first two suggesting that though there is sufficient employment, but the true challenge is to create well-paying quality jobs. Unfortunately, the leak of data from the first year of the two-year pilot periodic labour force survey (PLFS) done by the National Sample Survey Organisation (NSSO), before it could be fully verified, and subsequent media reports jumping to conclusions based on incomplete and half-baked data has added confusion and misdirection to the prevalent situation rather than helping. 
Being a member of the National Statistical Commission (NSC), it is my prerogative to bring the facts into public domain. The report had neither been made available or circulated to me for approval. The report was made available after I demanded it post the data leak controversy. The report does not have my approval. In fact the meeting held on 5th December to finalize the report was attended only by Acting Chairman Mr. P.C. Mohanan. Even, Ms.Meenakshi was not present in the meeting. As a standard practice, with this being the first of its kind exercise, the process of official data release should pass the most stringent scrutiny and careful verification and should definitely be subjected to peer review.
An impression has been created that the findings of the PLFS show a large jump in India’s unemployment compared to the previous employment-unemployment surveys (EUS), which was last concluded in 2011-12. This is erroneous since the previous surveys and the new PLFS cannot be so easily compared. PLFS is a two year pilot started in July 2017, which includes a quarterly urban and an annual rural survey. The objective is to have more frequent data on labour market and hence it departed from the previous EUS exercise which happened once every five years. Amongst other things, the PLFS has updated the sampling techniques used, a different sampling frame using 2011 census, and new data collection methods. 
Let me show you how this conclusion of job loss based on comparison with 2011-12 survey data is faulty. Besides employment data, the survey also presents the basic demographic data such as an estimate of total population in the country. The PLFS estimates India’s total population in 2017-18 to be lower than the EUS 2011-12. If we were to accept all such comparisons at face value, we should also be having the headlines that ‘India’s population declines in the last 6 years’. There is no apparent reason for population estimates to decline in six years if one considers that the methodology and coverage of the two surveys was same and considering that over the previous EUS surveys (2004-05, 2009-10 and 2011-12), the estimated population showed a growing trend largely in line with country’s official population growth rate. Another strange trend is the rate of urbanisation which seems to have nearly stalled during 2011-12 to 2017-18. This is at odds with what we know about growth in Indian cities as per numerous credible sources – all of which point that India is fast urbanizing. India’s rapid urbanisation has been confirmed even by NASA’s satellite imaginary of nightlights. Shall we also believe that India’s urbanisation has stalled despite, what empirical and anecdotal evidence shows us? 
In the current debate, many argue that employment generation is happening at a slower pace than workforce’s growth. However, comparison of the PLFS with the 2011-12 survey suggests that even the absolute number of people employed in the country has been declining at the rate of 2 million every year since 2011-12! This is completely at odds with any other socio-economic data available. For instance, India’s real GDP has grown by 50% during this period. Economic growth has come about with expansion in every sector – from infrastructure to housing, transport to healthcare and from professional services to retail. It is inconceivable that such growth could happen concurrently with shrinking number of employed workforce, which would strictly imply that productivity and capital accumulation is driving whole of India’s growth. Independent report by Brookings concluded that number of people living in extreme poverty in India has reduced from 268 million in 2011 to less than 50 million. It would be difficult to explain how such rapid reduction can happen if unemployment is also rising rapidly. Finally, the massive jump in unemployment seems to also contradict with another finding in the same PLFS - growing earnings and wages across different employment types. If the labour market conditions were as poor as the unemployment rate suggests, then the economics would expect falling or at least stagnant wages. But they aren’t. For example, the earnings/wages of rural women, for which unemployment rate is particularly high, have grown consistently in each quarter starting July-September 2017 and reached growth of 13% and 8% respectively by the last quarter. 
Finally, the massive jump in unemployment seems to also contradict with another finding in the same PLFS - growing earnings and wages across different employment types. If the labour market conditions were as poor as the unemployment rate suggests, then economics logic would be to expect falling or atleast stagnant wages. But they aren’t. For example, the earnings/wages of rural women, for which unemployment rate is particularly high, have grown consistently in each quarter starting July-September 2017 and reached growth of 13% and 8% respectively by the fourth quarter of the survey. It is overwhelmingly clear that the results from the PLFS are not comparable with the previous EUS, and PLFS should be used strictly for measuring the changes from the baseline in 2017-18. We have seen this before also – doing surveys in India has always been tricky with small changes in methodology producin
