          Golf Rangefinder Market Growth Increasing Number of Infrastructural Projects Worldwide with Technological Advancements      Cache   Translate Page      

Golf Rangefinder Market is expecting noticeable growth during the forecast period as Golf is gaining popularity amongst non-professional golfers, country clubs and business professionals.

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/09/2019 -- Golf Rangefinder Market - Overview

Golf rangefinder is a device which measures the distance of the target from the observer. The golf rangefinder tool is one of the major helping tools for players to gauge the distance and improve their scores. Amateurs use it specifically for measuring the distance between them and the flag. Golf rangefinders have numerous benefits in helping both experienced golfers and aspiring golf professionals to improve their game to a great extent, thereby mastering the act of hitting targets.

Golf is gaining popularity amongst non-professional golfers, country clubs, and business professionals. The profitability and popularity of the golf club service providers have increased significantly in recent years. Social media has grabbed the attention of youngsters by leisure of playing golf of friends and their relatives. Golf is considered to be a status sport which is popular around the world. With the rising disposable income, more new beginners are indulging their interest in this game.

Golf Rangefinder Market - Drivers and Restraints

Golf courses are highly concentrated in the top 20 countries and their count is increasing steadily worldwide. In 2017, about 34500 golf facilities were available globally. Most of these facilities are in the top 10 golfing countries which include the U.S., Australia, England, Canada, and Japan. Most of these facilities are in golf resorts, golf-centric real estates, and private clubs which make them largely accessible.

The increasing number of infrastructural projects worldwide along with technological advancements have boosted the growth of the global golf rangefinder market. Sports activities needing accuracies, increasing golf courses worldwide, along with the supporting factor of increasing disposable income of consumers which involves expenditure in leisure activities are the major drivers of this industry.

The approval for the usage of Distance Measuring Devices (DMDs) in most of the professional tournaments have positively impacted the global golf rangefinder market. Use of DMDs has been allowed by golf-governing bodies with the approval of the local communities to enhance the golf gaming experience.

The smartphone golf rangefinders pose a high threat to the rangefinders market. The premium sports industry has evolved tremendously over the last decade and golf has also adopted the technologies very well. For instance, application developers have also become one of the major stakeholders in the golf industry with the introduction of golf rangefinders. These application developers are creating golf applications by using the GPS functionality of smartphones. The increasing popularity of golf rangefinders can be attributed to their no-cost services. The penetration of smartphones has also increased which encouraged manufacturers to adopt golfing technologies. These factors are anticipated to restrain the industry growth over the forecast timeline.

However, mobile rangefinders are not as accurate as laser golf or GPS golf rangefinders as these devices can be used only for measuring distances which does not include slope and wind speed, which will fuel the demand for golf rangefinders.

Golf Rangefinder Market - Segmentation

The global golf rangefinder market can be segmented on the basis of product into laser golf finders and GPS golf finders. The laser golf rangefinders are anticipated to account for majority of market share over the forecast timeline. On the basis of region, the golf rangefinder market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America accounted for major share of the golf rangefinder market due to the presence of numerous manufacturers in the region.

Currently I have $126,000.00 invested:

23% Stocks

64% Bonds

12.6% Short Term Reserves.

....

I try to keep it simple...but maybe I'm overly conservative. ...


For comparison the Vanguard Target Retirement Income fund is 30% stocks and 70% bonds so you are just bit more conservative than that, which could make sense because you are older than many people who would be using that fund.



https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-fu ... view/vtinx



I think at a high level what you have is very reasonable even if it might not be what I would use if I was setting up a portfolio from scratch.



If this is in a taxable account there would likely be some capital gains to pay if you tried to move the money around to make some small improvement in the mutual fund selections. That likely would not be worthwhile so leaving it the way that it is would be pretty reasonable if this is in a taxable account.



If it is all in retirement accounts where taxes are not an issue then using the Vanguard Target Retirement Income fund would be a reasonable choice too.



There is a lot that we do not know about your situation like your tax bracket, if you have have a pension or a lot of home equity, or if these investments are in a taxable account or a retirement account. That makes it pretty hard to give you suggestions on how your might fine tune your investments.



The main thing I would be concerned about is that with four mutual funds it may be difficult to manage ten years from now when you are 93 and may not be as financially capable as you are now. When you start spending the money you might want to first sell off all of the two bond funds when you need money. Once those are sold off you would only have the Wellesly and the money market account which would be easier to manage.

With the combination of 403b options and 457b options I thought you might be in academia. :happy



You are single which would leave me inclined to use a tax deferred 457b for at least some of your income, especially income above the 12% tax bracket. After that contribute to a Roth403b if possible.



By the way, it is best to hold your bond allocation in tax deferred and your stock allocation in Roth to the extent possible. If you have good low cost options that is a better approach than using Target Retirement funds in each.

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

          10 Home Staging Tips Celebrated Interior Designers Swear By      Cache   Translate Page      

Design enthusiasts in Palm Beach County, Florida, let out a collective hurrah last year when the venerable Kips Bay Designer Show House in New York debuted a sister event in Palm Beach. The show house has now returned for a second year, gracing a 10,000-square-foot waterfront property in West Palm Beach (it's open now through February 20!)

Twenty-two design firms from throughout the country transformed the space in just under four months. When I visited, the rooms were so eye-catching and welcoming that I felt like moving in right away.

Their trick (other than the great design)? Impeccable staging—the real estate industry's special sauce to highlighting a space's best features and creating an environment that makes potential buyers want to live there.

Since all the rooms in the Kips Bay Designer Show House Palm Beach were so particularly alluring, I reached out to the designers to get their expert insights on staging a home with panache. Though the home is high-end, their tips were surprisingly versatile and can be used on any budget. Whether you're selling your home in a couple of months—or just want to create an Instagram-worthy home to show off to your friends—these tips can help get your place picture perfect:

Evaluation of 11C-LSN3172176 as a novel PET tracer for imaging M1 muscarinic acetylcholine receptors in non-human primates.

J Nucl Med. 2019 Feb 07;:

Authors: Nabulsi NB, Holden D, Zheng MQ, Bois F, Lin SF, Najafzadeh S, Gao H, Ropchan J, Lara-Jaime T, Labaree D, Shirali A, Slieker LJ, Jesudason CD, Barth VN, Navarro A, Kant N, Carson RE, Huang H

Abstract
The M1 muscarinic acetylcholine receptor (mAChR) plays an important role in learning and memory, and therefore is a target for development of drugs for treatment of cognitive impairments in Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia. The availability of M1-selective radiotracers for positron emission tomography (PET) will help in developing therapeutic agents by providing an imaging tool for assessment of drug dose-receptor occupancy relationship. Here we report the synthesis and evaluation of 11C-LSN3172176 (ethyl 4-(6-(methyl-11C)-2-oxoindolin-1-yl)-[1,4'-bipiperidine]-1'-carboxylate) in non-human primates. Methods: 11C-LSN3172176 was radiolabeled via the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling method. PET scans in rhesus macaques were acquired on the Focus-220 for 2 h with arterial blood sampling and metabolite analysis to measure the input function. Blocking scans with scopolamine (50 µg/kg) and the M1-selective agent AZD6088 (0.67 and 2 mg/kg) were performed to assess tracer binding specificity and selectivity. Regional brain time-activity curves (TACs) were analyzed with the one-tissue (1T) compartment model and the multilinear analysis method (MA1) to calculate regional distribution volume (VT). Non-displaceable binding potential (BPND) values were calculated using the cerebellum as reference region. Results: 11C-LSN3172176 was synthesized with >99% radiochemical purity and high molar activity. In rhesus monkeys 11C-LSN3172176 metabolized rapidly (29 ± 6% parent remaining at 15 min), and displayed fast kinetics and extremely high uptake in the brain. Imaging data were modeled well with the 1T and MA1 methods. MA1-derived VT values were high (range of 10-81 mL/cm3) in all known M1 mAChR-rich brain regions. Pre-treatment with scopolamine and AZD6088 significantly reduced the brain uptake of 11C-LSN3172176, thus demonstrating its binding specificity and selectivity in vivo. The cerebellum appeared to be a suitable reference region for derivation of BPND, which ranged from 2.42 in the globus pallidus to 8.48 in the nucleus accumbens. Conclusion: 11C-LSN3172176 exhibits excellent in vivo binding and imaging characteristics in non-human primates and appears to be the first appropriate radiotracer for PET imaging of human M1 AChR.

ImmunoPET imaging to assess target engagement: Experience from 89Zr-anti-HER3 mAb (GSK2849330) in patients with solid tumors.

J Nucl Med. 2019 Feb 07;:

Authors: Menke-van der Houven van Oordt CW, McGeoch A, Bergstrom M, McSherry I, Smith DA, Cleveland M, Al-Azzam W, Chen L, Verheul H, Hoekstra OS, Vugts DJ, Freedman I, Huisman M, Matheny C, van Dongen G, Zhang S

Abstract
Aim: Positron-emission tomography (PET) imaging with radiolabeled drug provides information on tumor uptake and dose-dependent target interaction to support selection of an optimal dose for future efficacy testing. In this immunoPET study of the anti- human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER3) mAb GSK2849330, we investigated the biodistribution and tumor uptake of 89-Zirconium (89Zr)-labeled GSK2849330 and evaluated target engagement as a function of antibody mass dose. Methods: 89Zr-GSK2849330 distribution was monitored in 6 patients with HER3-positive tumors not amenable to standard treatment. Patients received two administrations of 89Zr-GSK2849330. Imaging after tracer only was performed at baseline; dose-dependent inhibition of 89Zr-GSK2849330 uptake in tumor tissues was evaluated 2 weeks later using increasing doses of unlabeled GSK2849330 in combination with the tracer. Up to 3 PET scans (2 hours post infusion [p.i.] and days 2 and 5 p.i.) were performed after tracer administration. Biodistribution and tumor targeting were assessed visually and quantitatively using standardized uptake value. The 50% and 90% inhibitory mass dose (ID50 and ID90) of target-mediated antibody uptake were calculated using a Patlak transformation. Results: At baseline, imaging with tracer showed good tumor uptake in all evaluable patients. Pre-dosing with unlabeled mAb reduced the tumor uptake rate in a dose-dependent manner. Saturation of 89Zr-mAb uptake by tumors was seen at the highest dose (30 mg/kg). Despite the limited number of patients, an exploratory ID50 of 2 mg/kg and ID90 of 18 mg/kg has been determined. Conclusion: In this immunoPET study, dose-dependent inhibition of tumor uptake of 89Zr-GSK2849330 by unlabeled mAb confirmed target engagement of mAb to the HER3 receptor. This study further validates the use of immunoPET to directly visualize tissue drug disposition in patients with a non-invasive approach and to measure target engagement at the site of action, offering the potential for dose selection.

The Impact of FcγRI Binding on ImmunoPET.

J Nucl Med. 2019 Feb 07;:

Authors: Vivier D, Sharma SK, Adumeau P, Rodriguez C, Fung K, Zeglis B

Abstract
Antibodies are promising vectors for positron-emission tomography (PET) imaging. However, the high uptake of radioimmunoconjugates in non-target tissues such as the liver and spleen hampers their performance as radiotracers. This off-target uptake can lead to suboptimal tumor-to-background activity concentration ratios, decreasing the contrast of images and reducing their diagnostic utility. A possible cause of this uptake is the sequestration of radioimmunoconjugates by immune cells bearing Fc-gamma receptors (FcγR) that bind to the Fc regions of antibodies. Methods: Since the heavy chain glycans influence the affinity of FcγR for the Fc domain, we set out to investigate whether radioimmunoconjugates with truncated glycans would exhibit altered binding to FcγRI and, in turn, improved in vivo performance. Using the HER2-targeting antibody trastuzumab, we synthesized a series of desferrioxamine (DFO)-bearing immunoconjugates with differing glycosylation states and interrogated their FcγRI binding via surface plasmon resonance (SPR), ELISA, and flow cytometry. Furthermore, we labeled these immunoconjugates with 89Zr and explored their biodistribution in athymic nude, NSG, and humanized NSG mice bearing HER2-expressing human breast cancer xenografts. Results: We observed a strong correlation between the impaired in vitro FcγRI binding of deglycosylated immunoconjugates and significant decreases in the in vivo off-target uptake of the corresponding 89Zr-labeled radioimmunoconjugates (i.e. liver activity concentrations are reduced by ~3.5-fold in humanized NSG mice). These reductions in off-target uptake were accompanied by concomitant increases in the tumoral activity concentrations of the glycoengineered radioimmunoconjugates, ultimately yielding improved tumor-to-healthy organ contrast and higher quality PET images. Conclusion: Our findings suggest that the deglycosylation of antibodies represents a facile strategy for improving the quality of immunoPET in animal models as well as in certain patient populations.

Preclinical evaluation and non-human primate receptor occupancy study of 18F-JNJ-64413739, a novel PET radioligand for P2X7 receptors.

Abstract
Background: The P2X7 receptor is an adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-gated ion-channel, which is abundantly expressed in glial cells within the central nervous system and in the periphery. P2X7 receptor activation leads to the release of the pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-1β in the brain, and antagonism of the P2X7 receptor is a novel therapeutic strategy to dampen ATP-dependent IL-1β signaling. PET ligands for the P2X7 receptor will be not only valuable to assess central target engagement of drug candidates, but also hold promise as surrogate markers of central neuroinflammation. Herein we describe the in vitro and in vivo evaluation of 18F-JNJ-64413739, an 18F-labelled PET ligand for imaging the P2X7 receptor in the brain.

Bezos said the Enquirer and its parent company, American Media Inc., made the threat after he began investigating how the tabloid obtained text messages that revealed his relationship with a former TV anchor. Bezos, who owns The Washington Post, wrote that the Enquirer wanted him to make a false public statement that he and his security consultant “have no knowledge or basis for suggesting that AMI’s coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces.” Bezos declined to do so. Instead, he published what he said were emails from Enquirer executives to a lawyer representing his security consultant.

          Want to Lose Weight? Try This Celebrity Trainer's Simple, 4-Week Walking Plan      Cache   Translate Page      

When it comes to weight loss, celeb trainer and New York Times bestselling author Harley Pasternak, MSc, has a catchphrase: "Strong in the gym, lean in life." The Fitbit ambassador, nutrition scientist, and personal coach to the likes of Amy Schumer, Kim Kardashian, and Rihanna has told POPSUGAR on numerous occasions that the best way to lose weight is easier than you think: just walk more. Here, Harley makes his compelling case and shares a simple, month-long plan to get you started.

Why Walking and Not Running?

"Walking is something that can be woven into the fabric of the day," Harley said. "With running, you need to book a time to do it; you need to dress a certain way, wear specific shoes, be in a specific mindset, have time to shower after and re-dress - you don't have to do that with walking."

Additionally, he told us that there's a "direct correlation" between intensity of cardio and appetite, meaning the more strenuous cardio you do, the hangrier you'll be afterward. "It's why we use the phrase 'working up an appetite,'" he said. So if weight loss is your goal, walking will be your way to lean out in 2019.

The Plan

Harley believes in this approach so much that getting a step tracker is part of his prescribed regimen to his celebrity clients. While adding in steps here and there will certainly add up over time, we asked him for a four-week plan, giving us a target to work with.

"This plan starts off assuming your current step count is 10,000 steps per day," Harley told POPSUGAR. The goal is that by the end of week four, you're walking an additional 4,000 steps per day.

  • Week one: 11,000 steps each day, Sunday through Saturday
  • Week two: 12,000 steps each day, Sunday through Saturday
  • Week three: 13,000 steps each day, Sunday through Saturday
  • Week four: 14,000 steps each day, Sunday through Saturday

Harley acknowledged that "jumping 1,000 steps per day each week can be daunting" and that not everyone is starting at 10,000 steps each day. If you're hovering somewhere closer to 5,000 steps daily, the goal is the same. Add 1,000 steps per day for week one, another 1,000 for week two, and so on until your new daily average is 4,000 steps above your start point.

"For those that are starting at a lower step count, don't stop at the end of week four," he said. "The optimum range of steps is different for everyone, but I haven't met anyone who hasn't been able to physically keep up with 14,000 steps per day unless they have an underlying medical condition."

The goal is the same: "Get to a place where you hit a daily step goal that you can sustain without leading to mental and physical burnout." Sound good? Great. Let's do this.

          15 things you can buy from Costco, Amazon, Sam’s Club, and BJ's to be ready for when the apocalypse hits (WMT, COST, AMZN)      Cache   Translate Page      

underground bunker

  • What kind of supplies do you need to ride out an apocalypse?
  • In the United States, plenty of doomsday preppers have asked themselves that exact question.
  • Business Insider compiled a list of products that might come in handy once you retreat to your survival bunker.
  • In the event of doomsday, you might want to hit up Costco, Amazon, Sam's Club, and BJ's.

Want to survive the apocalypse?

Start working on your grocery list.

In the United States, there's a whole sub-culture dedicated to amassing supplies for the end times. These preppers often consider widespread, earth-shattering catastrophe to be an inevitability, and they stock up on food, water, weapons, and tools accordingly.

And the trend seems to be catching on. The New Yorker recently chronicled the spate of billionaires who plan to flee to underground bunkers in New Zealand when things go south. 

So what kind of products might come in handy when the end of the world appears imminent?

Here are a few supplies that you might want to keep handy in your underground survival bunker: 

SEE ALSO: Gas stations are thriving, but plenty of other businesses across the country have hit a slump, according to Yelp data

DON'T MISS: These are the brands that shoppers are obsessed with, from coffee to paper towels

SEE ALSO: Costco, Walmart, and Target workers handle some ridiculous returns, from entire lawn sets to used toilets

Gargantuan supplies of food kits

Retailers like Sam's Club and Costco have become famous for stocking huge kits of emergency food supplies.

At Costco, you can buy a year's worth of food for $4,699.99, or a $5,999.99 supply that will last four people an entire year.

Sam's Club members can purchase a year's worth of food pails for $1,443 or three years' worth of food pails for $3,499.



Lots and lots of water

You can't survive long without water. Don't be shy about hoarding all the bulk packs of water bottles and water cooler containers that you can lay your hands on. If you want to really get ahead of the game, you can even collect the supplies you need to make your own water purification system.



A pot of honey

Pure honey never goes bad, so you can still embrace your sweet tooth after the arrival of the four horsemen. For $126.99, you can buy a 40-pound tub of US-made organic honey at Costco.

          A few words about politics      Cache   Translate Page      

Etymology is fascinating with, particularly how words continue to echo their origins long after you would have expected drift to completely separate them. Reflecting on current and previous meanings of words helps me think about things in a new and useful light. There are a few words in politics that I think can use a little bit of inspection right now.

Progressive vs Liberal
When I was growing up there was essentially no difference between a progressive and a liberal. Progressive is a word that shares a root with "progress" meaning forward movement, it is attached to the idea that society should continue to develop in the way which it is currently developing. It also contains the implicit assumption that the next thing will always be better, or at the very least, will be a unpleasant but necessary step on the way to something better.1

Liberal, on the other hand, is a word that shares a root with "Liberty" meaning freedom. The core tendency behind liberal ideas is that we should attempt to provide the greatest amount of freedom possible within society. For a long time increasing freedom was seen as the obvious path of progress. More recently these two ideas have diverged as the immediate path of progress seems to be more focused on equity and justice than on freedom.

Republican vs Democrat
Republican is a marvelously well suited word for the G.O.P. right now. A republic is, in American english at least, a form of government where the public elects representatives to govern on their behalf. What is fascinating about this definition is that the elected officials are not necessarily proportional in number or power to the number of constituents they have. That is to say it is not a popular vote, with per-captia representation. The United States is a republic by this definition with the Senate being the place where this is most obvious. A Wyoming residents representation is ~80 times that of a California residents2. At the moment, in American politics, it happens that the Republican party is both the great supporter of, and the great beneficiary of this disproportionate representation.

In contrast Democrat comes from the word "Democracy", with it's root in the greek "Demos" meaning "the people" or "the population". 3 Democracy is generally seen as an extremely egalitarian political system, typically formed as "one citizen, one vote", and in the slightly more extreme version of "direct democracy" meaning that there are not intermediary officials at all. The United States was not formed as a democracy, but democracy none the less remains one of the key underlying myths behind the nation. The Democrats4 are both more publicly supportive of this myth, and also benefit more from cases where it is adopted, because popular opinion reliably swings leftward of policy.

Conservative
Shares a root with the word "conserve" or to preserve. This word has primarily been associated with the GOP, and this makes sense as the primary backers of that party were far more rural and more religious, two demographics which tend to take to cultural change slowly if at all. It's not clear that the word is an uncontested fit anymore though. Environmentalists and those concerned about climate change have at least as strong a claim to "preservation" as the GOP at this point. In my opinion the environmentalists actually have a better claim as if the cultural norms of carbon emission remain the same then eventually the environment changes, and the culture along with it, where as if the culture changes to preserve the environment there is probably less overall change.
There is also a weaker claim that a classical liberal focused on free speech, free choice, and equality of opportunity can be seen as conservative, in that they are trying to preserve the norms that have been achieved in that arena against the increasingly restrictive political norms of the progressives.

A random rant about Mt. Rushmore
Teddy died in 1919, Mt. Rushmore was started in 1923. Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln were already well established as the political demigods that they are seen as currently in our secular pantheon. Conversely Roosevelt was still much more of a living memory politician. Building that monument would be sort of like making a giant statue of Washington, Lincoln, and Ronal Regan (or Ford). It's just so clearly an attempt to ram someone into a position of prestige that we generally prefer to let history elevate them into. I'm not bashing Ted as a president, he did pretty well, I'm just saying this happened too soon to be legit.

  • 1. the arc of history is long but it bends towards justice --M.L. King
  • 2. California Population 40 Million / Wyoming population 0.5 Million == 80
  • 3. Similar to demographics and many other words you can think of.
  • 4. the party

          Mafia Capitale: chiesti 5 anni per Alemanno, ex sindaco di Roma! Cosa ne pensate?      Cache   Translate Page      


Condannare l’ex sindaco di Roma, Gianni Alemanno, a cinque anni di carcere”. È la richiesta della Procura di Roma nel processo che vede imputato l’ex ministro per corruzione e finanziamento illecito in uno dei filoni dell’inchiesta sul Mondo di Mezzo-Mafia Capitale. Secondo l’accusa, Alemanno, tra il 2012 e il 2014 avrebbe ricevuto oltre 220mila euro mila euro per compiere atti contrari ai doveri del suo ufficio. I soldi, in base all’impianto accusatorio, sarebbero giunti da Salvatore Buzziin accordo con Massimo Carminati e sarebbero stati versati alla fondazione Nuova Italia, presieduta proprio da Alemanno.
Nel corso della requisitoria, durata circa 6 ore, il pm Luca Tescaroli ha affermato che l’ex primo cittadino è stato “l’uomo politico di riferimentodell’organizzazione Mafia Capitale all’interno dell’amministrazione comunale, soprattutto, in ragione del suo ruolo apicale di sindaco. Inserito al vertice del meccanismo corruttivo – ha detto Tescaroli – ha esercitato i propri poteri e funzioni illecitamente e curato la raccolta delle correlate indebite utilità, prevalentemente tramite terzi propri fiduciari per schermare la propria persona. Gli uomini di fiducia, indagati e alcuni anche condannati in Mafia Capitale, sono stati proiezione della persona di Alemanno, che ha impiegato per la gestione del proprio potere, e si sono interfacciati con gli esponenti apicali di Mafia Capitale, suoi corruttori (Buzzi e Carminati)”.
Il pm ha, nel dettaglio, chiesto 4 anni e mezzo per corruzione e 6 mesi per finanziamento illecito, più l’interdizione perpetua dai pubblici uffici, e quella legale per la durata della pena. Il magistrato ha, inoltre, sollecitato ai giudici della seconda II penale la confisca di 223.500 euro, l’equivalente del prezzo del reato di corruzione. Parlando davanti ai giudici della II sezione penale, il rappresentante della Procura ha aggiunto che “la figura del sindaco rappresenta lo snodo fondamentale del percorso corruttivo dei vertici di Mafia Capitale, una risorsa preziosa che va tutelata nel momento di difficoltà”. In base all’impianto accusatorio, Alemanno ha sostanzialmente “venduto” la sua funzione anche con l’ausilio “del fidato Franco Panzironi, parimenti corrotto”, al “sodalizio criminale Mafia Capitale” che “è riuscito a ottenere il controllo del territorio istituzionale di Ama spa, società presieduta dal Comune di Roma, incaricata di pubblico servizio, ente aggiudicatore di appalti, target privilegiato dell’organizzazione”. E ancora: Alemanno “ha consentito di porre le strutture del suo ufficio, di Ama Spa e di Eur Spa a disposizione di Buzzi e di Carminati”. “Lunedì gli avvocati della difesa risponderanno ad un teorema accusatorio che appare esasperato e contraddittorio. Da parte mia posso solo ribadire la mia completa innocenza” replica Alemanno.

This is a fantastic post - we are irreversibly spoiled by your wonderful writing and continuous inspiration, dear Victoria. :) I speak fluently three, and read / understand other three languages so I understand and confirm that it takes time and effort but it's probably the most beautiful thing in the world to be able to exchange two words with a stranger in a foreign country. It brings people together so much. My awful spoken French was so useful even in a snobbish Paris last year. :) Language learning is an exercise in humility, as somebody said, and I love making funny mistakes, and I encourage my students to do the same. Reading, listening or watching things in a target language is crucial indeed. Even setting browsers, phone apps or other visible sources in a target language is a good idea (maybe not when you're a beginner unless you want to get stuck with your phone settings in Tagalog) Thanks for the Anki recommendation, I've already downloaded wonderful Persian decks. ps. I've also had a great experience with Italki.

          Herdsmen Kill Parishioners In Benue; Seek Death Of Businessman      Cache   Translate Page      

The alleged killing of Rev Father Joseph Gor, Felix Tyolaha, and other dedicated members of St Ignatius Quasi Parish, Ukpor, Mbalom in Gwer West Local Government Council of Benue have been condemned by Christian agencies across Nigeria.

A statement by its Director of Communications, Rev Fr Moses Lorapuu, said that the attacks were perpetrated by herdsmen who stormed the Mbalom community, killed parishioners during the morning mass at the church.

Presently the church is in search of some of their prominent businessmen and missionaries who are the major sponsors of activities in the church, allegedly on the death roll of the invading herdsmen.

We gathered that Victor Nwankwo, Silvester Okowa and three others were suspected to be targeted at, during the early morning bloodbath by Fulani herdsmen. These men according to reports are the major benefactors of the Catholic Church development in Benue state. They herdsmen allegedly claim that Victor Nwankwo and his four colleagues was amongst the missionaries that converted hundreds of Muslims to Christians.

According to investigations, Victor Nwankwo and his fellow missionaries are yet to be found as they have become a search agenda in the list of Africa’s most dreaded insurgent group.

The Diocese expressed regret at the nonchalant attitude of the security agencies in containing the killings. It said the herdsmen, who stormed the community, burnt down houses, destroyed crops and killed people. The church, therefore, urged the relevant authorities to stop the killings in the Benue valley.

Rev.Lorapuu said the Diocese had been active in providing food and relief materials to Internally Displaced Persons (IDP’s) since the onset of hostilities in the state and wondered why it could be marked as a target of attacks. “The attack on the priests is an attack on everything that we ever stood for and believed in,” says Lorapuu. Meanwhile, concerted efforts to get reaction from the Benue Police Command failed as its Public Relations Officer, ASP Moses Yamu, was not forthcoming with remarks. Rev. Fr. Gor had before the attack written on Facebook; “Living in fear. The fulani herdsmen are still around us in Mbalom. They refuse to go. They still go grazing around us. No weapons to defend ourselves”. Herdsmen in the early hours of the morning attacked a Catholic Church and parishioners who went for 5.30 a.m. mass. Reports say the bodies of the dead have been taken to St. Theresa’s Hospital Makurdi.

https://img-hws.y8.com/cloud/v2-y8-thumbs-thumbnail464x348s-001/5844/thumbnail464x348.gif Basket Ball Run is an HTML5 mouse skill game that can be played by one player for free at Y8.com. Basket Ball Run is a fun and exciting basketball game where it will challenge your skills in shooting the ball by tapping the screen using your mouse. Hold and drag your mouse to aim and shoot. You need to be very mindful of the distance to avoid miscalculating when shooting the ball. Just take your time in deciding when to shoot because there will be bonus points for those perfect shots. The higher the ball gets, the harder the obstacles. So you need to check if there are platforms that can cause your ball to bounce back. Also, the target ring will also move as the game progresses. This kind of obstacle will make the game more challenging to play since it will affect the targeted distance when shooting the ball.

          I’m not sure Ivanka knows what “empower” means      Cache   Translate Page      

The first daughter once again positions herself as a champion for working women – but only certain women.

US President Donald Trump displays the national security presidential memorandum launching the "Women's Global Development and Prosperity" initiative. Martin H. Simon/DPA/PA Images. All rights reserved.

Ivanka Trump has had numerous opportunities to do right by women workers in her life, and the record shows she hasn’t taken them. Since her father took office, she has adopted a number of pet projects related to women’s economic empowerment. Her latest effort is more of what we've come to expect from Ivanka: talk of empowerment without paying any attention to what really makes a difference. The Women's Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment Act of 2018 (WEEE Act), signed into law by President Donald Trump in early January, claims to “address gender-related barriers to economic growth and support women-led businesses” by mandating that the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) take certain steps to be more gender-sensitive in grant making and reporting. The most significant piece requires USAID to dedicate at least 50% of its small- and medium-sized enterprise resources to target businesses owned by women. 

Despite its lofty title, this law has a limited scope and weak language. It pays lip service to gender-based violence, access to fundamental labour rights, and women’s access to property rights, but fails to establish measures to substantively address these important issues facing women workers. Jobs and economic empowerment opportunities are only useful insofar as they are good jobs – jobs that pay a living wage and allow workers to form unions, without fear of retaliation. There is no guarantee that because a business is woman-owned, that business will provide good jobs. And if an initiative is not pro-worker, it can’t claim to be pro-women.

From the first announcement of this legislation, there was reason to be heavily skeptical. As documented by the Washington Post in 2017, Ivanka Trump’s eponymous clothing brand was rife with reported labour abuses. The primarily women workers sewing clothes for the Ivanka Trump brand made some of the lowest wages in the world. Her company failed to take basic steps to improve its practices, like disclosing the list of its supplier factories or signing the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh. The brand, which is now closed, was hardly a positive sign of Ivanka Trump’s commitment to working women.

Ivanka has also failed to take action to support a new international convention on gender-based violence in the workplace. Unlike the WEEE Act, this critical initiative would establish a global human rights standard around sexual harassment and violence at work, driving legal reform around the world. Unequal power relations in society and at work result in women, as well as trans and gender non-conforming people, facing increased exposure to violence and harassment at work. Yet no specific international standard exists on this issue. Governments around the globe have been involved in negotiating a ground-breaking new benchmark, yet the United States has been conspicuously unresponsive to solicitations for comment from the International Labour Organization.

Perhaps the most glaring omission from the WEEE Act is the millions of women whose economic opportunity isn’t of interest to the president’s daughter. The women from Central America seeking asylum at the US-Mexico border, for example. Is Ivanka Trump invested in their economic empowerment? Is she concerned about their access to decent jobs, affordable credit and financial institutions? Not likely, since no one in the Trump family has spoken out against the humanitarian crisis at the border. The United States played a key role in creating the economic conditions that led to many asylum seekers deciding to migrate in search of good jobs. Why not take action there? As with her previous efforts in this arena, Ivanka seems to focus exclusively on women entrepreneurs and business leaders. This excludes most working women.

It’s true that none of the mandates outlined in the law are necessarily harmful. All government agencies could benefit from taking a more gender-sensitive approach to their programs. But such a weak effort exists as talking point for Ivanka Trump, a feather in her cap. She wants to be perceived as pro-women, without actually challenging the power structures that afford her infinite privilege and access, and without challenging the root causes that keep the majority of women in the world in poverty. She wants to empower, but doesn’t want to give up her power to do so. This latest effort is a step in the right direction. But it is a step too small to register with the people who need it most.

In an era of fake news, an extra dose of skepticism serves you well. It’s time to apply that principle to the world of ‘women’s empowerment’ initiatives. We need to start asking: who is driving this change? Is this an evidence-based, bottom-up initiative to address the root causes of inequality, or is this a smokescreen to distract from the real causes of inequality? The one thing you can count on is that just because something says it is empowering doesn’t mean it is.

          Trinamool Congress blames BJP for MLA Satyajit Biswas' murder      Cache   Translate Page      

[India], Feb 10 (ANI): Trinamool Congress has been blaming BJP for the murder of its MLA Satyajit Biswas in West Bengal's Nadia district.

Trinamool legislator from Krishnagunj in Nadia district, Satyajit Biswas was shot dead by unidentified assailants on Saturday evening at Phulbari in Jalpaiguri. The incident happened when Biswas was attending Saraswati Puja celebrations at Phulbari.

The accused managed to flee from the spot after killing Biswas. Police have initiated a probe and are looking for the accused.

According to reports, the lawmaker was shot multiple times from a close range when he was coming down the stage after attending the event.

Gauri Shankar Dutta, TMC’s district president alleged that BJP leaders conspired to kill Biswas as he defeated the BJP candidate twice by a huge margin.

“Satyajit Biswas was BJP's target for a very long time. He had been a preventive wall of the attempts of Mukul Roy and Soumitra Thakur for movement of 'Matua' votes to BJP. The murder of Biswas is the handiwork of Mukul Roy. He is touring these days across the area to strengthen the BJP. He is the conspirator. Roy had earlier lashed out at Satyajit. We will fight it (the murder case) and ensure that justice is served."

"BJP is playing politics of bloodshed in the state," Gauri Shankar Dutta said.  

Mukul Roy is a former leader of Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress who left the party in 2017 and joined the BJP.

Nadia district Zila Parishad member, Santosh Kumar Guha said, "Satyajit Biswas was a good person. We doubt if he had any enemy. Political parties like BJP have always been thinking of removing Satyajit from here, so maybe someone from BJP must have killed him."

However, BJP denied all the allegations and said that the factional feud of the ruling party was behind the attack. BJP state president Dilip Ghosh said, “This is utterly tragic. This shows even lawmakers of the ruling party are not safe in the total lawlessness of Mamata Banerjee’s Bengal. In the last few months, each time a TMC leader or a supporter is killed, they blame our party. How can the BJP kill a TMC MLA? Our security itself is in question."

"We would like to tell the central government that this is the situation in Bengal that even a ruling party lawmaker is not safe. How will Trinamool Congress government protect the people of the state? People in the state are living at the behest of God," Ghosh posted a video on his Twitter handle. (ANI)

          [Upwork] Economic and Real Estate Market Research. Real Estate Knowledge and Experience is a Requirement.      Cache   Translate Page      
From Upwork // The qualified applicant will have real estate knowledge and experience. This experience and knowledge is critical!

The research project may be ongoing for several years. The majority of the research will likely be done early on in the project. Future time may be to update research to indicate then current market conditions.  

The research revolves around the expectation of a downturn in the real estate market in the US. It is anticipated prices will drop in the next 2-3 years. It could happen sooner or later.  

The research is to identify the best buying opportunity (lowest part of the market) as well as the best areas (local markets) to buy when the market conditions are right.

The research will target data for multi-family properties in the 75-200 unit size.

The research will:

Identify the 3-5 markets (cities in the US) where economic indicators show an especially solid job market. Indicators include a higher than usual amount of jobs being added to the market.

Identify lower than national average real estate cost/price to average local personal income ratio.

The research will consider many of the items in this newsletter. https://www.biggerpockets.com/renewsblog/survive-the-next-market-crash/?utm_source=newsletter


As we identify the target markets we will narrow the focus to:  

Identify local areas within a 30-40 minute commute to larger employers. This will assist in locating 75-200 unit multi-family properties with a reasonable time commute to large employers.

The local research will consider crime statistics for the target areas.


Qualified applicants will have to be able to provide a good report based on a higher level view of the project. The report(s) should include graphs and maps as needed.

The research will continue to track key economic indicators of the national real estate market in the US and local economy/market (local in the areas we have targeted and are tracking.)  

This research will identify when to buy the property and where the best area is to buy the 75-200 unit multi-family property to increase the long term financial outcomes the property produces.

If you have read the job description to the end please be sure to mention it in your submittal for the job!

Cigarette Smoking, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, and Glucagon-like Peptide-1 Receptor Agonists as a Potential Treatment for Smokers with Diabetes: An Integrative Review.

Diabetes Res Clin Pract. 2019 Feb 05;:

Authors: Yammine L, Kosten TR, Pimenova M, Schmitz JM

Abstract
Tobacco use disorder (TUD), in particular cigarette smoking, contributes significantly to the macro- and micro-vascular complications of type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM). Persons with DM who regularly use tobacco products are twice as likely to experience mortality and negative health outcomes. Despite these risks, TUD remains prevalent in persons with DM. The objective of this integrative review is to summarize the relationship between TUD and DM based on epidemiological and preclinical biological evidence. We conclude with a review of the literature on the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) as a potential treatment target for addressing comorbid TUD in smokers with DM.

Relationships between blood pressure lowering therapy and cardiovascular events in hypertensive patients with coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus: The HIJ-CREATE sub-study.

Diabetes Res Clin Pract. 2019 Feb 05;:

Authors: Kamishima K, Ogawa H, Jujo K, Yamaguchi J, Hagiwara N

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: The effects of intensive blood pressure (BP) lowering for hypertensive patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and diabetes mellitus on their clinical outcomes have not been fully evaluated. The aim was to explore the optimal systolic BP target in such patients in a substudy of a prospective, randomized trial.
METHODS: Of a total of 2,049 hypertensive patients with CAD who were enrolled in the HIJ-CREATE study, type 2 diabetes was diagnosed in 780 (38.1%). Titration of antihypertensive agents was performed to reach the target BP of <130/85 mmHg. The primary endpoint was the occurrence of a first major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE). Achieved BP was defined as the mean value of systolic BP in patients who did not develop MACEs and as the mean value of systolic BP prior to MACEs in those who developed MACEs during follow-up.
RESULTS: During a median follow-up of 4.2 years, the primary outcome occurred in 259 (33.2%) diabetic patients and in 293 (23.1%) non-diabetic patients (p<0.0001). The diabetic patients were divided into quartiles based on the mean systolic BP during follow-up. The relationships between achieved BP and the incidence of MACEs did not follow a J-shaped curve. Intensive systolic BP lowering to less than 120 mmHg did not correlate with an increased risk of MACEs.
CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that the intensive BP lowering may not impair patients' clinical courses even in a high-risk population. The establishment of an optimal management strategy for hypertensive patients with diabetes and CAD is essential.

          5 Destinasi Wisata Mancanegara Yang Halal dan Bebas Visa      Cache   Translate Page      

turis muslimah

Bagi umat muslim tanah air, banyak yang merasa bahwa pilihan tujuan wisata luar negeri memang terbatas. Hal ini dikarenakan pada negara-negara dengan mayoritas penduduk non muslim, mereka kesulitan untuk mendapatkan makanan halal.

Selain rekomendasi negara-negara yang menjadi destinasi wisata halal, kami juga menyajikan peringkat negara destinasi wisata halal menurut Mastercard-CrescentRating.

Peringkat tujuan wisata halal di dunia

Mastercard-CrescentRating merilis Global Muslim Travel Index (GMTI) 2018. Dimana peringkat ini mencakup negara-negara Organisasi Kerjasama Islam (OKI) dan negara non-OKI.

Berikut adalah peringkat negara-negara tujuan wisata halal sesuai GMTI.

Negara-negara OKI

[table id=404 /]

Negara-negara non-OKI

[table id=405 /]

Adapun peringkat ini didasarkan pada penilaian beberapa kategori, yang di antara lain adalah kelengkapan infrastruktur, lingkungan, serta komunikasi terhadap target wisatawan.

Artinya, negara-negara di atas memiliki fasilitas ibadah untuk wisatawan muslim serta variasi hidangan halal yang mudah didapatkan.

Pada rekomendasi kali ini, kami memilihkan negara-negara yang ramah untuk wisatawan muslim serta mudah diakses karena tidak memerlukan visa.

wisata di thailand

Malaysia

Salah satu negara yang bertetangga dengan Indonesia ini merupakan tujuan wisata yang menjadi rekomendasi utama untuk turis muslim.

Selain fasilitas ibadah serta makanan halal yang tersedia, negara ini juga menjadi salah satu tujuan wisata termurah di dunia.

Walaupun memiliki mayoritas penduduk muslim, Malaysia memiliki atraksi wisata dari berbagai kebudayaan seperti India dan Cina. Keragaman bisa menjadi pengalaman menarik bagi siapa saja yang mengunjungi negara ini.

Bagi Anda yang menyukai hidangan dari Medan, tidak akan kesulitan mencari makanan di sini. Karena, menurut banyak orang Indonesia, makanannya memiliki citarasa yang mirip dengan masakan Medan.

Destinasi wisata yang bisa dikunjungi antara lain; Kota Kinabalu, Batu Cave, Menara kembar Petronas, dan masih banyak lagi.

Turki

Bagi Anda yang ingin menikmati klasiknya suasana Eropa dan keeksotisan Timur Tengah di satu tempat, maka Turki tempatnya.

Bagi turis Indonesia, Anda tidak perlu mengurus visa sebelum keberangkatan. Karena negara ini menggunakan sistem Visa on Arrival (VoA) untuk pengunjung dari Indonesia.

Jadi saat kedatangan, Anda cukup mengantri di loket VoA. Loket ini tidak menerima pembayaran visa secara non tunai, jadi Anda harus menyiapkan uang sebesar USD 35 (Rp 490.000).

Negara ini berpenduduk mayorits muslim, sehingga tidak sulit untuk menemukan tempat-tempat ibadah serta makanan halal. Jadi bagi turis muslimah, jangan lupa untuk membawa perlengkapan shalat saat jalan-jalan ke sini.

Di sini ada banyak tempat bersejarah serta toko yang menjajakan barang-barang unik. Tempat menarik yang bisa dikunjungi antara lain adalah; Kota Tua Istanbul, Kota Kuno Ephesus, Cappadocia, dan bersantai di spa natural di Hierapolis Turki.

Singapura

Walaupun bukan bagian dari OKI, Singapura merupakan negara yang ramah untuk pengunjung muslim. Hal ini dilihat dari fasilitas serta ketersediaan makanan halal yang mudah.

Singapura juga memiliki komunitas orang Melayu yang kebanyakan beragama Islam. Sehingga Anda tidak kesulitan untuk menemukan makanan yang halal serta cocok dengan citarasa Indonesia. Biaya untuk mengunjungi Singapura pun masih terjangkau karena jaraknya yang dekat.

Tidak heran kalau setelah Malaysia, banyak orang Indonesia yang menjadikan Singapura sebagai tujuan wisata.

Selama di Singapura, jangan lupa untuk mengunjungi Sentosa Island, Orchard Road, Bugis Street, atau Universal Studios Singapore.

Thailand

Siapa yang tidak jatuh cinta dengan kuliner khas Thailand? Nah, paling tepat kalau menyantap hidangan khas Thailand sembari menikmati keunikan negaranya.

Mayoritas penduduk negara ini memang bukan muslim, namun Anda masih bisa menemukan hidangan halal dengan mudah. Coba ikuti panduan ini untuk menemukan makanan halal di Thailand. Lebih mudah lagi, Anda bisa mencari di internet daftar restoran halal di Thailand sebelum berangkat liburan.

Sedangkan untuk shalat, sebaiknya atur waktu jalan-jalan dengan waktu shalat. Hal ini untuk mengantisipasi jika Anda tidak menemukan tempat ibadah saat berada di luar hotel atau penginapan.

Walaupun bukan mayoritas, penduduk Thailand sudah familiar dengan kebudayaan Islam. Jadi para turis muslim akan diterima dengan baik di negeri ini.

Soal tujuan wisata, jangan ditanya lagi. Thailand memiliki beragam tujuan wisata yang menarik seperti kuil putih Chiang Rai, taman Sung Nong Nooch, atau kota Chiang Mai.

Jepang

Jepang merupakan destinasi wisata yang menjadi tren di Indonesia. Banyak orang yang ingin ke negeri Sakura untuk menikmati keindahan alamnya dan keunikan budaya di sana.

Bagi Anda pemegang e-passport, Anda bisa masuk ke Jepang tanpa visa untuk maksimal 15 hari. Jadi sebelum Anda berangkat, pastikan untuk mendaftar izin masuk bebas visa. Sedangkan untuk pemilik paspor biasa, harus memiliki visa terlebih dahulu sebelum berangkat.

Jika Anda berwisata ke Jepang menggunakan jasa perusahaan perjalanan (tour and travel), maka pengurusan visa dilakukan secara kolektif. Pihak pemandu perjalanan juga akan membantu Anda menemukan makanan halal selama di Jepang.

Bagi Anda yang bepergian sendiri, memang paling aman untuk mencari makanan vegetarian atau sushi. Namun, ada banyak juga restoran halal di Jepang. Jadi jangan takut kelaparan selama ada di negara ini.

Sebagaimana di Thailand, sebaiknya Anda menyesuaikan waktu jalan-jalan dengan waktu shalat. Walaupun di Jepang terdapat masjid, namun jumlahnya tidak banyak. Sehingga ada baiknya Anda mengantisipasi agar ibadah harian tidak terganggu.

Jika Anda berkesempatan ke Jepang, jangan lupa untuk mengunjungi Tokyo Tower, Sensoji Temple, dan Ueno Park. Kalau Anda sempat mengunjungi kota lain selain Tokyo, ada baiknya Anda ke Osaka untuk menikmati berbagai atraksi wisata di sana.

Jadi bagi umat muslim yang ingin berlibur ke luar negeri, jangan ragu untuk memilih negara-negara sesuai peringkat GMTI agar nyaman selama perjalanan.

Kemudian supaya Anda tidak “jatuh miskin” karena jalan-jalan, perhatikan tips keuangan ini sebelum merencanakan liburan.

          French yellow vest anti-government protests turn violent in Paris      Cache   Translate Page      

A French yellow vest protester’s hand has been ripped apart during violent clashes in Paris as demonstrators tried to storm the French National Assembly during a 13th consecutive week of unrest. Police said the injured protester lost four fingers as police swooped in to stop protesters from breaching the parliament’s exterior. Officers could not confirm French media reports that the hand of the demonstrator, who is now being treated in the hospital, was blown up by a grenade used to disperse unruly crowds. As scuffles broke out in front of the National Assembly and French police responded with tear gas, paramedics huddled around the injured protester at the National Assembly gates. Police used batons and fired tear gas in Paris to disperse demonstrators, some of whom threw debris at riot police. Cars, motorbikes and bins were set ablaze as the protest moved toward the city’s Invalides monument and onto the Eiffel Tower. French interior minister Christophe Castaner took to Twitter to express his disgust as protesters set alight an anti-terror military car. Such vehicles have been a common sight in Paris since deadly extremist attacks in 2015. Mr Castaner said: “Every day the military … protects our compatriots from the risk of terrorism. These attacks are intolerable.” Police said 31 demonstrators had been arrested. But France’s interior ministry said this week’s protest was significantly smaller than last week’s. The yellow vest activists, who have brought hundreds of thousands onto the streets over the past three months, are now trying to achieve electoral success but the movement is politically divided and has no appointed leader. French president Emmanuel Macron – the target of many demonstrators’ anger – seems to be clawing back support from the public as he tries to address the movement’s anger with a national political debate on economic injustice. Recent polls show Mr Macron’s approval ratings are rising. Earlier on Saturday, activists in Latvia staged a picket in front of the French embassy in Riga, the capital of the small Baltic EU country, to support the yellow vest movement and urge Latvians to demand higher living standards. The activists waved Latvia’s red-and-white flag, shouting slogans like: “The French have woken up, while Latvians remain asleep.”

Monetary policy: Return of the Zimdollar


7th February, 2019

THE Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) governor John Mangudya is due to release the monetary policy and the policy position is highly anticipated against the sustained monetary related macro-economic deficiencies. As a symptom, the economy has endured a southward gravitation of the exchange rate, including a sharp loss of value through inflation.

Guest column: Respect Gwenzi

Prices of most basics have risen by over 200% since September 2018, and the parallel market has discounted Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) and bond notes by 75% over the past 24 months, with most of the value having been shed over the last three months. Broadly, the market continues to be starved of hard currency as well as local money in notes for day-to-day transactions. These challenges are deep-rooted in a weak fiscus and to a lesser extent, the abdication of monetary policy flexibility in a dollarised economy.

The government believes that challenges being encountered on the monetary front are a derivation from fiscal imbalances that has resulted in excessive local borrowing, among other factors. While the prognosis is widely shared by pundits, there is a clear disagreement in terms of what remedies should be adopted to end the crisis. In his 2019 budget, the Minister of Finance Mthulisi Ncube introduced austerity measures to cut back on government spend (as a percentage of income) and increased taxation to spur government revenue.

Over the last two months of 2018, government went on to record firmer revenue numbers ahead of target based on a higher taxation and a surge in inflation, which shows mixed signals in terms of policy measures effectiveness.

Why has local money continued to lose value against the USD if austerity is expected to improve and stabilise the fiscus or is it too early to determine. Indeed, local money has been on a sustained downward spiral although the rate of decline has moderated since December. Part of the reason why exchange rates have stabilised was because of a sharp slowdown in money supply growth rate. In fact, in October, for the first time since January 2018, money supply actually came off, which is a negative growth.

This decline meant government did not inject more money into the economy through Treasury Bills issuances and that it lived within its means, which is commendable.

However, as is the case in most analyses there is a lack of appreciation of costs attached to undertaking certain policy measures.

The October improvement on the fiscus did not represent any firming fundamentals, in-fact, it was mainly an impact of inflationary growth and speculative buying of goods at higher prices. With prices doubling, so did value added tax on sales, among other taxes, as shown in Zimra’s full year numbers. This revenue boost cushioned government’s expenditure bill, which did not necessarily come off. The downside of such a revenue boost is that real income is eroded.

Measures such as the 2% tax on all electronic transactions have had a similar impact of raising tax revenue while exerting a premium on notes, notably hard currency.

Although industry production was generally up in 2018, the extent of income growth was partly a consequence of firming prices, which colours the picture.

Local money has continued to lose value because the net position on most fundamentals remains weak, if not worse-off. The mop-up of excess liquidity has been too minute and thus less effective so far. At the going rate of money supply slowdown, no significant slowdown in exchange rate worsening should be expected.

Likewise, most indications are pointing towards a weaker industry performance in 2019 due to forex shortages and a slowdown in aggregate demand as incomes lose value.

The net balance of payments largely derived from the trade balance is worsening. Exporters have shown a disapproval of the current retention rate and this has dampened production and export receipts, a trend likely to deepen in 2019 if the currency matter is unresolved.

From this, it is apparent that the fiscus leg in isolation does not have the power to solve the economic crisis, neither does it effectively solve the monetary crisis.

There is need to urgently address the economic monetary front to salvage forex receipts, demand and production lest the economy falls into a depression, since a

recession is now most likely in 2019. Austerity globally has, however, never succeeded in isolation of a flexible and weaker monetary regime. If pursued in isolation, as shown earlier, austerity could result in inflationary growth and mid-term overshoot in spend, relative to income.

Whereas government is slowly coming to this realisation, the hanging question is if government was to intervene, through the expected monetary policy, what form of intervention would best be suited for the economy?

There is a high likelihood that through the monetary policy, government will reintroduce the Zim dollar and do away with the multi-currency regime. This projection is based on recent utterances by the Minister of Finance, who said the USD is unsustainable and that Zimbabwe should expect a new currency within a year, a date he later revised downwards three days ago. Similar sentiments were, during the election campaign period, shared by Vice-President Constantino Chiwenga, who hinted on a pending

Zimdollar return.

Then Deputy Finance minister Terrence Mukupe shared similar sentiments in one of his Twitter posts. And barely 24 hours ago, the Minister of Mines Winston Chitando, while presenting at the ongoing mining indaba in South Africa, said the monetary policy due to be released would tackle currency issues.

The above is overwhelming evidence of the policy direction the government is due to take with regards the currency. The evident sharp economic losses currently being experienced may have prompted a sooner than anticipated response.

What form or a de-dollarisation could we expect; outright or partial? The government is prepared and adamant to reintroduce an exclusive local currency and do away completely with the multi-currency. LINK

Zimbabwe: Zim On Course to Clear Debts

8th February, 2019

Zimbabwe is on course to clear obligations to international financial institutions (IFIs), with the Government already in talks with creditors over bridging finance to settle the debts, Finance and Economic Development Minister Professor Mthuli Ncube has said.

Prof Ncube said this in an interview on the sidelines of his presentation to students of Defence Course Intake 7 of 2018, at the Zimbabwe National Defence University in Mazowe.
He said the arrears clearance plan was tied to economic reforms, which are anchoring President Mnangagwa's administration as he seeks to lead Zimbabwe towards attaining Upper Middle Income status by 2030.

"We just need to work harder to make sure that we access the bridging resources for that," said Prof Ncube. "In terms of the bridging resources themselves, of course we are having conversations with the creditors themselves because that is where we can get the cheapest funding. "The cheapest funding you can ever get is from themselves (the World Bank, IMF and African Development Bank) and there are mechanisms through which this can be done and we are working on that; we are having a conversation on that."

Talks for bridging finance can take up to a year, said Prof Ncube, which requires that in the interim, the country should stick to other means of survival. Zimbabwe's arrears to the African Development Bank (AfDB) are $610 million, over $1,16 billion to the World Bank and $212 million to the European Investment Bank. The arrears have to be settled with all the multilateral financial institutions for Zimbabwe to start accessing funds from them.

Prof Ncube said the first step to solving the arrears issue was economic reforms, which started off with the crafting and launching of the Transitional Stabilisation Programme (TSP). The TSP has been widely accepted by the creditors and foreign governments as a "credible document".

Prof Ncube said the issue now was the implementation of the TSP, "and the first test is really through the Budget, that is your implementation instrument and also resource allocation". "The Budget was passed by Senate on the 29th (of January) so that process is complete. We are now going into the implementation phase for the next few months and that's when we will show the track record in walking the talk on our economic reform agenda.

"I must say that from where we sit as Government (and) as Treasury, the path is still clear, we are carrying on with the reform agenda because if you think about it, what's beginning to happen is that we are beginning to really experience some of the pain without completing the reform agenda. "So it is important to complete (the reforms) so that the pain is then worth the investment."

Prof Ncube said they were working closer with the World Bank, IMF and the AfDB. A team from the World Bank has already visited Harare while an IMF team is currently in the country.

Officials from the AfDB are expected in March to speak about the arrears clearance plan. ". . . in terms of interacting with the institutions, the arrears clearance road map involves closer working relationships with the IMF, World Bank and the African Development Bank. "As I speak, this week they (IMF team) are visiting Zimbabwe, I just met them before I came to speak here, at the (National) Defence College (University) and we have been very open, very transparent, very constructive in our conversations about our reform agenda (and) where the economy is headed. "All that is part of the arrears clearance road map, you cannot get to the road map without talking to the three institutions, so arrears clearance, is part of the road map."

Phase three of the arrears clearance will see conversations being deepened with the multilateral lenders. Said Prof Ncube: "So my view is that we are on track. Of course, it doesn't mean that any turbulence we face in the country, does not tamper with our plan. "When you are piloting an aircraft, when you are going through turbulence you must work harder to keep on course because sometimes it feels like, but you need to keep focus on the destination, and they (creditors) are very supportive of us, in getting to that destination. "Equally, those that we owe money are equally supportive, so we are on course."

He emphasised that it was imperative that Government stayed on course regards the reform agenda as it was a "package", together with the arrears clearance plan. Zimbabwe has failed to access a lot of credit lines because of failure to settle its arrears with the World Bank. Prof Ncube said each time local banks try to borrow; they fail to get money directly unless they got a Government guarantee. Local bank's inability to obtain lines of credit directly limits the quantum of funds to support the productive sector. LINK

          Thread: Cold War, Hot Armor:: Rules:: Range for LOS      Cache   Translate Page      

by TedW

Is there a range limitation for LOS?

12.1 LOS/LOF- says there is a range limitation for FIRE but is silent on LOS

12.4 LOS Considerations- "LOS can never exceed visibility". (the problem is visibility talks about range not distance)

28.0 Visibility- implies says that low visibility cuts ranges in half ("this also applies to LOS").

24.7 Recon- just talks about being within an LOS (no range reference)

17.4 Spotting- for indirect fire, a spotting units range can spot any target within its range.

So, the question is, can a unit trace a LOS greater than its range?

I think the answer is "no". You can't trace LOS > range. The problem is, this means a tank can see/recon/spot much further than infantry platoon.

Now for Part 2 of 2 from last week's FbF. If you have not read it yet, head back, give it a read, and come back. We'll wait.

Let's pick up the story of the Krait (renamed from Kofuku Maru).
Lyon located a replacement engine for the Krait in Hobart, Tasmania, and had it shipped to Townsville and installed. For simplicity’s sake and to save space, he scrapped the part of his plan to destroy harbor installations in Singapore and concentrated on shipping. Even so, when the 70-foot-by-11-foot Krait sailed to Cairns and was fitted out with supplies and stores for six months. With diesel fuel, kerosene, canoes, weapons, explosives, equipment, spare parts, and radio gear, there was only enough space left for the team to sleep a few at a time in hammocks slung in any vacant spot.

Lyon’s team included Donald Davidson, second-in-command, British Royal Navy, a tough, resourceful Englishman who had spent years in Australia’s outback and the jungles of Southeast Asia and had been commissioned in the Navy in Singapore with no previous naval experience; Lieutenant Bob Page, Australian Army, former third-year medical student who had swapped university studies for special operations; Lieutenant Ted Carse, Australian Navy, navigator, who had sworn off alcohol for this operation; Stoker Paddy McDowell, British Royal Navy, ship’s engineer and World War I veteran; Corporal Taffy Morris, a British Army medic who had escaped from Sumatra with Lyon; Corporal Andrew Crilley, an Australian Army engineer who had volunteered to be cook to get selected for the team; Telegraphist Horrie Young, Australian Navy; and six young Australian Navy seamen who had not yet been to sea—Wally Falls, Freddie Marsh, Cobber Cain, Andrew Huston, Arthur Jones, and Mostyn Berryman. All were volunteers from the Z Special Unit, usually called Z Force.
Studs.
On August 9, 1943, they left Cairns on a 2,400-mile voyage around the north of Australia to Exmouth Gulf in Western Australia. There the crew of the American submarine repair ship Chanticleer did some excellent repair work on the Krait while refusing to believe that the “crate” had made it all the way from Cairns. They prepared her with 150 pounds of plastic explosives so that she could easily be blown up if captured.
I had to add that because, well, you know my feelings about the incredible force multiplier tenders are. Before I get on another "where are my damn tenders today" rant, let's push on to the attack. Remember to read it all ... but let's get to the pointy end;
On September 8, the raiders were more than 700 miles north of Australia and within sight of Gunung Agung, the 10,000-foot sacred mountain of Bali, and the equally sacred 12,000-foot Gunung Rinjani on the nearby island of Lombok. That night they steered between the two islands into the 25-mile-long Lombok Strait, hoping their fishing boat flying the Japanese flag would not be challenged and to make it through by dawn.
...
On the night of September 16, the raiders anchored off a beach on the island of Pompong, and Davidson, Cain, and Jones went ashore and buried cans of water and emergency supplies. During the night they listened to the growl of engines as Japanese seaplanes were warmed up at the base on nearby Chempa Island and watched searchlight beams in the sky.
...
The gear was taken ashore—canoes, limpet mines, food and water, arms and ammunition, clothing, medical kits, and a bag of Dutch gold guilders. The Japanese patrol boat, whose engine they had heard earlier, again passed very close.

Lyon called a meeting of the team. It was decided that this island, Pandjang, 30 miles from Singapore, was too close as a pickup point after the raid, that 12 days should be allowed for the raid, and that the attack team should be picked up at Pompong Island—50 miles from Singapore—where they had buried the emergency rations. Pickup would be at midnight on October 1. If the attack team was not there, the Krait would return 48 hours later.
...
At 4 am, the attack team—Major Lyon, Lieutenants Davidson and Page, and Seamen Falls, Jones and Huston—shook hands with the others and were rowed ashore.
...
The canoes were 17 feet long and, loaded with two men, limpet mines, arms, equipment, food and water, weighed almost a third of a ton. They got them into the sea and waited, each man dressed in a black Japara silk suit and black exercise shoes, faces and hands blackened, pistols and knives strapped on, compasses and first aid kits in zippered pockets, each with a cyanide tablet within easy reach in case of need. When the regular Japanese patrol boat passed, they climbed into the canoes and began paddling toward Singapore, Lyon and Huston in one, Davidson and Falls in another, and Page and Jones in the third.
...
They paddled until midnight, covering 11 miles, and then, tired and sore from the unaccustomed labor, pulled in at the small, uninhabited island of Bulat. They unloaded the canoes and carried their gear to a grove of palms in the scrub and lay down and slept until daylight.

Waking, they looked out to sea to find a motorized sampan flying a Japanese flag moving slowly toward the beach, and on the beach there was still some of their gear. Two of the canoes were only partly hidden. Pistols ready, cursing themselves for their carelessness, they watched the sampan anchor just off the beach. During the next hour they held their breath as Japanese sailors moved around on the deck of the sampan, but none of them noticed the gear on the beach. When the sampan left, they quickly got the gear and canoes under cover.
Life is often the luck of another persons ill-attention, or lack of it. The mission continues;
After dark, still stiff and sore from the previous night’s paddling in the cramped canoes, they set off for the Bulan Strait. The strait was only a mile wide, and the rip tides and whirls among the islands made paddling the heavily laden canoes extremely difficult. They had traveled less than nine miles when they dragged the canoes among the mangroves of Bulan Island just before dawn. When dawn broke, they heard voices calling and could see people moving about in a village only a short distance away on the next island. Looking around, they saw more villages dotting other small islands, and sailboats and canoes began using a channel only yards away from them.

They laced mangrove branches as camouflage, ate some of their rations, and lay down in the stinking mangrove mud to sleep, their calm broken by calls coming from the villages, dog fights, and the shouts of boatmen passing so close that the sails of their boats blotted out the sun. It was a miserable day. Sandflies attacked them in swarms, and crabs nipped them as they lay baking in the sun, but in the late afternoon it rained heavily and, refreshed somewhat by it, they left in their canoes as soon as it was dark.

They were out of the Bulan Strait by midnight and by 2 am could see the lights of Singapore in the sky—they were too low in the water to see them directly. They landed on Dongas Island and hid their canoes and gear. They were eight miles from their target and 2,000 miles from their base at Exmouth Gulf, Western Australia.
In canoes.
The next morning they checked the island and found it uninhabited. From a high point, using a telescope, they spent hours looking through the haze into the harbor. For Huston, Falls, and Jones, Singapore was just another island, an island to be attacked, but for the other three there were emotional links. Bob Page’s father was a prisoner in Singapore as were Donald Davidson’s brothers, and for Ivan Lyon it was his wife and young son. They had escaped Singapore before its fall and reached Ceylon. Sailing to Australia to join Lyon, their ship was sunk in the Indian Ocean and they were taken as prisoners to Singapore. Lyon knew that much but did not know they had been moved to a prison camp in Japan. They survived in the camp until freed by American troops when Japan surrendered....
The attack team rested on Dongas Island for much of the next two days and watched the courses steered by a variety of ships for evidence of minefields.
...
On the second afternoon, a convoy of 13 ships moved into the Roads, preparatory to leaving the harbor. It was too good a target to miss, and after dark the team carried their canoes to the beach and launched them.

At midnight they were still two miles from the Roads, fighting a crosstide, when a searchlight snapped on. Motionless, they floated for half a minute in the glare, expecting an alarm to sound, and then the light went out. They closed up and decided that, because of the crosstide, they would have to give up for the night. They also decided they would find another island from which to launch their attack.

They left Dongas Island the next night and, fighting the tides between islands, they reached Subar Island, seven miles west of Dongas, just before dawn.
Patience. Luck. Training. Endurance.
Subar was a rocky island, the rocks too hot to touch, and so hot it was impossible to sleep during the day. The men lay on blankets on a cliff top where they could look down on the sea 60 feet below and watch the passing parade of junks and ketches, proas and sampans. The heat haze lifted in mid-afternoon, and through the telescope they examined the harbor, transferring what they saw to their chart and planning their attack that night.

Under a moonless sky they paddled for the lights of Singapore. In the harbor they twice lay forward and motionless in their canoes while searchlights played over them, but no alarm was raised. Then they separated, looking for targets.
It was time;
Along Bukum wharves where the sea glowed with reflected light, Bob Page and Arthur Jones passed a 5,000-ton freighter, then a small coastal ship and a big, well-lit tanker on which welders were working. Page decided on the freighter. They had to cross a large patch of full light before they came into the shadow of the freighter, and when their eyes adjusted they moved along its hull attaching limpet mines below the waterline, timed to explode at 5 am.

They hung on the anchor chain, resting and eating chocolate bars and listening to the chatter of the welders and other workmen on the tanker until, warned by instinct, they looked up to see a uniformed Japanese guard on the deck above them. Unmoving, they watched him for several minutes until he spat into the sea beside them and moved on. They paddled away.

Their second target was a large, modern ship low in the water with cargo. The glow of its lights on the water around it and the red dots of cigarettes being smoked by the crew on deck made it a dangerous target, but they took the risk and attached limpets. Leaving this ship, they were caught in a rip current that, before they realized what was happening, bumped the canoe against the rudder of a heavily laden tramp steamer. They attached their remaining limpets to it and, bathed in sweat and desperately tired, they began paddling for Dongas Island where they would meet the others.

Ivan Lyon and Andrew Huston paddled into Examination Anchorage where, in contrast to the lights that had plagued Page and Jones, there was almost complete darkness. Low in the water, it was almost impossible for them to spot ships against the blackness of the anchorage and the shoreline hills. They paddled for two hours unable to find a ship and then saw a red light and the silhouette of a tanker. They circled her, noting how low she was in the water and, knowing that it was difficult to sink a tanker with limpets, they decided to put all they had on her.

As they could hear voices on deck, they worked slowly and cautiously. They placed three limpets over her engine room, another three around her propeller, and moved along her starboard side. With two more limpets attached and the last one ready to go on, Lyon looked up to see, 10 feet above him, a man’s head out of a porthole, his face pale against the black hull. The man sniffed and cleared his throat, and Lyon, the limpet in his hands, wondered if he would have time to attach it. So he set a one-minute fuse to detonate it if they were challenged. The head disappeared, a light appeared in the porthole, and they waited for the man to return with a flashlight to shine on them. He did not. Lyon attached the limpet, and they paddled away.

Donald Davidson and Wally Falls paddled into Keppel Harbor, where they were almost run down by a steam ferry. Passing the yacht club, they could hear Japanese voices raised in song and other sounds of party revelry. In Empire Dock, where there were ships, it was so highly floodlit and there was so much activity going on they kept moving, following an ocean-going tug into the Roads off the business heart of Singapore. Here there were plenty of ships and a lot of light.

They drifted in beside a heavily laden freighter and attached three limpets, then moved on and did the same to a second freighter and a third. The Victoria Hall clock chimed 1 am. It was getting late. They decided not to return to Dongas Island but to make straight for the rendezvous on Pompong Island.

Lyon, Huston, Page, and Jones reached Dongas just before daylight, and after nine hours in the canoes they were so exhausted and sore they had great difficulty unloading and hiding the canoes. But they scrambled up the hill and waited expectantly in the growing daylight. At 5:15 they heard a dull explosion—and six minutes later a second one. They could hear the sound of sirens. In the next 20 minutes they heard five more explosions. “A good night’s work,” Jones said.
If you have not already, head over for the rest of the story at WarfareHistoryNetwork.

Not heard of this before? Well, there are reasons. Some was how well it was hidden ... the other the secondary cost;
Although the loss of Japanese shipping in the operation, 37,000 tons, was very small in comparison with, say, Japanese ships sunk by American submarines, the sheer daring of the operation would have given a boost to Allied morale if it had been publicized and would probably have created panic in every Japanese occupied port in the Pacific and Southeast Asia. But the operation was classified top secret as knowledge of it by the Japanese could jeopardize any future similar operations. The story of operation Jaywick was buried in the files until long after the war.

The Jaywick team returned to Z Force, not knowing that in Singapore the Japanese had blamed local saboteurs for the sinking of their ships and begun an investigation that led to the imprisonment, torture and execution of hundreds of Chinese and Malays, and some of the Europeans interned on the island.
That last bit is on the Japanese.

Anyway, for the men, remember, no matter what you do in life, you'll never be this cool.




          Thread: Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-Kar:: Variants:: Simple Solo      Cache   Translate Page      

by jholliday

Using ideas for a couple other solo variants already posted, here’s what I came up with. Admittedly not particularly strategic and a lot of dice rolling, but it has proven to be a fun way to run around the island on your own.

You control three players, playing each player independently, each one trying his/her best to win. That is, for example, you always do your best to hit an opponent with an ember or the tiger. You get to the chopper when you think you can win.

I have the tiger/bees expansion, so have included rules for those components. Just ignore if you only have the base game.

Set up
As normal for a 3-player game, except do not deal action cards to the players.

Gameplay
As normal, but instead of playing an action card from your hand, you draw a card from the deck. That is the action the player must take.
After Player-3’s turn, Vul-Kar takes a turn. Draw an action card. The only actions Vul-Kar takes is:

• Rotate Vul-Kar
• Drop Fireballs
• Launch an ember marble
• Send the bees

All other text on the action cards is ignored.

Action modifications
• Any time Vul-Kar is rotated (by a player or Vul-Kar) roll the die. 1=Rotate clockwise (1 or 2 spaces, depending on card). 2 = Rotate counterclockwise (1 or 2 spaces). 3 = Reroll the die

• If you choose to turn a tree, you must turn a root to protect yourself, not intentionally harm an opponent.

•Any time a player does something against another player (e.g. Launch an ember marble or tiger, Move another player, Give another player a bee sting, etc.), roll the die. 1=Target opponent A. 2=Target opponent B. 3=Reroll. (Decide before rolling who is A and who is B.)

Exception: If action involves trying to knock an opponent down (e.g. Ember marble or Tiger), if one opponent is already knocked down, target the other opponent.

• Use “mean” souvenirs (i.e. Those impacting other players, generally “Hangry” souvenirs) as soon as possible per the text on a card.

• Snares: When triggered, roll the die. 1=Snare worked, follow direction on the card. 2=Snare malfunctioned. Opponent continues move. Keep the card. 3=Reroll.

That’s it. All other game play is the same. Player with highest points at end of game wins.

I found this to be a lot of fun. Game ebbs and flows, just like a multiplayer game. I had no idea who would end up the winner.




          Thread: Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition):: Variants:: RAMV engage action (monster with an Encounter Objective)      Cache   Translate Page      

by Imanamir

Hello

RAMV Rule say :

A monster with an Encounter Objective will always attempt to
resolve an Engage action as their first action. Once this Engage
action is resolved, then follow the triggers on the Monster AI card
as normal.


For engage action

If A monster with an Encounter Objective move equal its speed toward Encounter Objective and then still the Encounter Objective was not in its max attack range ( for attack or interact or any not attack-able like Exit ) but a target (hero) was in its max attack range .( the first AI card's command is Attack ) Now the monster attack target or again do engage action and move toward Encounter Objective ?

thanks .

1-Regarding the Plaguebringer's Willing Scarifice, since it states "once during each of you move actions..." Could theoretically begin to move, execute the damage to kill an enemy that would be standing on the way, and keep going, finishing the movement?


2-Another scenario: consider that I attack something with dissadvantage, and I reveal a +1, then I go for the second card, I reveal a stun and draw another one. Which one is the worst?

3-Area attacks that STUN or otherwise have effects never apply neither the damage nor the effect to allies except when they explicitly say so, correct?

4-Can you apply the effect of the jagged sword to one of those melee attack that, while single target on itself, affect more than one hex?

          Publicity to Vadra could help Congress bounce back: RSS ideologue      Cache   Translate Page      

New Delhi: RSS ideologue Seshadri Chari on Saturday expressed fears that "too much publicity" to Robert Vadra, the brother-in-law of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, could help the Congress bounce back, like former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi did after the 1980 general election.

"I hope too much publicity to Vadra does not end up like Indira Gandhi bouncing back after the Janata Party government. Conviction is not possible in a month's time and by then, election schedule could begin," he said in a tweet.

The former editor of 'Organiser', the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) mouthpiece, stressed the need to project positive, affirmative, people-friendly projects initiated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Seshadri Chari's remarks came in the wake of Vadra appearing for the third consecutive day before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for the third round of questioning in a money laundering case.

Vadra's wife Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who recently entered active politics and was appointed Congress General Secretary, has accompanied Vadra to the ED office to drop and pick him in the past few days.

Chari also suggested the BJP backroom boys scale up the corruption issue to at least the 2014 level if they want to achieve the target of "ab ki baar, teen sow paar" ('this time, above 300 seats' -- the BJP slogan).

"The general perception that Congress' first family greatly benefited from corruption will have a great impact in the coming months," he said in an article which he shared on his official Twitter handle.

In the 1977 general election held after the Emergency, Janata Party emerged victorious defeating the Congress, and Morarji Desai became the Prime Minister. He was later succeeded by Charan Singh.

But in 1980 general elections, the Congress, led by Indira Gandhi, bounced back to power winning a handsome 353 of 529 seats.

I much appreciate additional details and your interesting insights. Yes, I plan/hope to retire in a higher tax bracket than I am in currently, hence my preference for Roth.



What is your opinion on using a Target Retirement (TR) fund vs. a manually constructed portfolio, say, 3-fund one, in my situation?



Also, do you think that I have selected a TR fund with a somewhat too aggressive for my age (and for potentially unstable in the near-term stock market) stocks/bonds ratio?




What will push me into the next tax bracket is my pension which is projected 56K or 60% of final average salary and I have been on the job for the last 32 years.



If you have a guarantee pension it maybe the same case for you, look it this way, if you are in 12% tax bracket, you are better to eat the tax on $24,500 between your base salary and you will get to keep the profit in the future.



Ed Slott the IRA expert recommends this approach paying tax and investing in ROTH (google him)



As far as Target Retirement fund vs manually constructed portfolio, it depends on your retirement plan offerings, without seeing its expense ratio, it is hard to say. So it depends on their offering. If you have superior offering, in my plan NYSDCP Vanguard PrimeCap has an excellent performance track record, even John Bogle owned it. I chose funds based on portfolio holdings, consistence ten year performance, dividends in a tax sheltered investment and expense ratio.



So I would chose an active fund over index if your future track record will prove positive, it is rarely for majority of investors, I am a buy and hold investor and occasionally rebalance. I had TRowe Price Equity Income Fund for approx 20 years which gave me 4% return on investment on approx 300K and 700K profit with dividend reinvested.



Lots of BH will disagree with this approach, but I had invested before coming here.



If you want to construct your three fund portfolio, it can work or you can do your own based on Christine Benz Morningstar Lifetime allocation table.

In contrast, Indonesia’s improving fiscal status and aggressive monetary policy stance in the face of global headwinds have burnished the nation’s assets in the eyes of investors. Comparison between two of emerging Asia’s two biggest economies are common given their similarities, and that’s especially true this year.

          Segera Dilantik Jokowi, Emil Dardak Ungkap Program Kerja 99 Hari Pertamanya      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Khofifah Indar Parawansa dan Emil Elestianto Dardak dilantik Presiden Jokowi sebagai Gubernur dan Wakil Gubernur Jawa Timur pada 13 Februari 2019. Emil mengaku telah memiliki rencana dan target kerja dalam 99 hari pertama pemerintahannya bersama Khofifah.

"Ada, tapi karena beliau (Khofifah) juga punya kesibukan yang luar biasa, kami baru bisa sedikit-sedikit membahasnya," kata Emil di Trenggalek, Minggu (10/2/2019).

Emil mengatakan, dirinya bersama Khofifah sepaham untuk menajamkan apa yang ingin dilakukan di 99 hari pertama. "99 hari ini kami bagi dalam tiga tahapan, yaitu apa-apa yang akan dilakukan dan dikerjakan di 33 hari pertama, lalu berikutnya 33 hari kedua, dan 33 hari ketiga," ujarnya.

Tanpa mengurai detail program prioritas kerja dimaksud, Emil mengilustrasikan penggunaan istilah (target kerja di) 99 hari pertama karena alasan simbolis. Angka sembilan dinilai angka yang baik, memiliki nilai maksimal, tertinggi dalam hierarki bilangan angka.

"Beliau (Khofifah) senang angka sembilan, dan 99 kan mirip 'asma'ul husna'. Bagus," ucap Emil Dardak.

Kendati memiliki program kerja yang ditarget waktu mulai jangka 33 hari hingga jangka 99 hari itu, Emil menegaskan bukan berarti semua serba jangka pendek. Akan tetapi lebih dimaksudkan sebagai motivasi dan tolak ukur untuk mendapat capaian-capaian tertentu.

"Kayak program ada yang bisa langsung jadi, tapi ada juga yang desainnya harus matang di 99 hari pertama. Itu yang akan kami petakan semua mulai dari (janji program kerja) Nawa Bhakti Satya mulai Jatim sejahtera hingga Jatim Harmoni," ungkap Emil Dardak.

 

Nawa Bhakti Satya

Nawa Bhakti Satya yang menjadi arah, visi dan misi pembangunan yang diusung pasangan Gubernur-Wakil Gubernur Jatim terpilih, Khofifah-Emil itu terdiri dari sembilan program kerja, yakni:

Bhakti ke-1: Jatim Sejahtera. Yaitu mengentaskan kemiskinan menuju keadilan dan kesejahteraan sosial.

Bhakti ke-2: Jatim Kerja. Yaitu "millineal job center" dengan cara memberikan "job training", pendidikan vokasi, membantu "starting-up" usaha, membantu promosi bagi usahawan muda, dan membantu pembiayaan usaha pada tahap awal usaha.

Bhakti ke-3: Jatim Cerdas dan Sehat. Yaitu pendidikan dan kesehatan gratis berkualitas.

Bhakti ke-4: Jatim Akses. Yaitu membangun infrastruktur dalam kerangka pengembangan wilayah terpadu, dan keadilan akses bagi masyarakat pesisir dan desa terluar seperti Kawasan Lingkar Wilis, Lingkar Bromo, Lingkar Ijen, Gerbang Kertasusila, Koridor Maritim Pantura Jawa-Madura, Koridor Maritim Selatan Jawa.

Bhakti ke-5: Jatim Berkah. Yaitu dengan memberi tunjangan kehormatan bagi imam masjid di kampung, pesisir, dan pulau terluar. Kemudian perluasan tunjangan kehormatan bagi hafidz-hafidzoh. Penguatan peran pondok pesantren dalam mendorong partisipasi sekolah dan beasiswa guru diniyah S2.

Bhakti ke-6: Jatim Agro. Yaitu memajukan sektor pertanian, peternakan, perikanan darat dan laut, kehutanan, perkebunan untuk mewujudkan kesejahteraan petani dan nelayan.

Bhakti ke-7: Jatim Berdaya. Yaitu memperkuat ekonomi kerakyatan dengan berbasis UMKM, koperasi, dan mendorong pemberdayaan pemerintahan desa. One Village One Product One Corporate and Agropolitan.

Bhakti ke-8: Jatim Amanah. Yaitu menyelenggarakan pemerintahan yang bersih, efektif, dan anti korupsi.

Bhakti ke-9: Jatim Harmoni. Khofofah-Emil siap menjaga harmoni sosial dan alam dengan melestarikan kebudayaan dan lingkungan hidup.

          Sergio Ramos: Real Madrid Bisa Salip Barcelona      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Madrid - Kemenangan 3-1 Real Madrid atas Atletico Madrid mendongkrak kepercayaan Sergio Ramos. Kapten Los Galacticos -julukan Real Madrid- itu yakin timnya bisa mengejar Barcelona yang sedang memimpin klasemen Liga Spanyol.

"Liga memotivasi kami dan kami ingin terus berjuang untuk itu dan menyulitkan Barcelona," ujar Ramos seperti dilansir Sports Mole.

Real Madrid perlahan tapi pasti mulai menunjukkan tajinya di Liga Spanyol. Ramos dan kawan-kawan baru saja menaklukkan rival sekota mereka 3-1, Sabtu (9/2/2019) malam WIB.

Tiga gol Real Madrid dicetak masing-masing oleh Casemiro, Sergio Ramos, dan Gareth Bale. Sementara, satu gol Atletico dicetak oleh Antoine Griezmann.

Tambahan tiga poin membuat Real Madrid menyalip Atletico dan duduk di posisi kedua. Kini, Real Madrid mengoleksi 45 poin, hanya tertinggal lima poin dari Barcelona.

"Kami telah menuntaskan target kami untuk memulihkan posisi di tabel dan mengurangi jarak dari pemimpin klasemen. Sekarang, kami akan menunggu reaksi mereka," kata Ramos.

 

 

Tampil Pintar

Terkait performa melawan Atletico, Ramos menilai Real Madrid tampil cerdik di markas lawan. Ia pun menganggap kemenangan itu layak didapatkan timnya.

"Ini adalah penampilan yang kompetitif dari kami dan saya pikir hasilnya adil. Saya kira performa kami sangat pintar dan sekarang, kami bisa bertarung untuk gelar juara," kata Ramos mengakhiri.

          Murid Rossi Kaget Rebut Posisi Dua di Tes MotoGP Sepang      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Selangor- Murid Valentino Rossi yang baru naik kelas ke MotoGP,Francesco Bagnaia tak menyangka berhasil meraih posisi dua di hari terakhir tes pramusim MotoGP Sepang yang berakhir Jumat (8/2/2019). Soalnya,dia merasa saat ini baru paham 65 persen soal bagaiman menjadi pembalap MotoGP.

Bagnaia, murid Rossi yang pernah belajar di akademi VR46, berada di belakang Danilo Petrucci yang finis terdepan di tes pramusim MotoGP Sepang. Petrucci mencetak rekor waktu lap di Sepang.

Sedangkan Bagnaia yang bernaung di Pramac Ducati hanya terpaut 0,063 detik dari Petrucci. Dia menorehkan waktu lap 1 menit 58,302 detik.

"Tentu saja saya tak pernah menyangka bisa mengukir waktu 1 menit 58 detik. Target saya 59 detik dan meraih 58 detik serta pecahkan reko lama tentu luar biasa," ujarnya seperti dikutip crash.

Bagnaia menggunakan motor 2018 di tes pramusim Motogp di Sepang. Dia juga gunakan fairing yang dipakai tahun lalu.

Perlu Berbenah

Meski tampil memukau, Bagnaia mengaku masih harus benahi banyak hal. Dia kini bahagia karena bisa belajar banyak hal.

"Paling penting saya semakin paham bagaimana mengendarai motor MotoGP, seperti pembalap MotoGP. Saya juga membuat racing line dan utamanya berakselerasi seperti pembalap MotoGP," ujarnya.

Bagnaia mengaku masih 65 persen dalam pemahaman menjadi pembalap MotoGP. Dia berharap bisa terus konsisten.

"Soalnya Anda hanya mendapatkan poin di balapan dan saya mencoba untuk konstan dengan ban bekas," ujarnya.

"Saya ingin memenangkan mobil untuk kualifikasi tahun ini, tapi melawan Marquez bakal sangat sulit."

Buang Gaya Moto2

Pembalap asal Italia ini mengatakan sudah mulai meninggalkan gaya membalapnya di Moto2 seperti telat mengerem dan mengangkat motor usai menikung.

"Hari pertama membalap hampir sama seperti tahun lalu saat di Moto2, lebih cepat di pertengahan tikungan dan penting untuk mengetahui bagaimana mengangkat motor serta gunakan traksi saat keluar dari tikungan," ujarnya.


          Jepang Bersiap Bikin Medali Olimpiade 2020 dari Smartphone Bekas      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Panitia penyelenggara Olimpiade Tokyo 2020 memang sudah berencana untuk membuat medali penghargaan dari logam yang ditemukan pada limbah elektronik.

Diharapkan, program tersebut dapat rampung pada 31 Maret 2019 dan desain untuk medali olimpiade dan paralimpiade akan terungkap musim panas ini.

Dilansir dari The Verge pada Minggu (10/2/2019), panitia Olimpiade Tokyo 2020 mengharapkan dukungan yang besar dari masyarakat dan perusahaan di seluruh Jepang, serta dari atlet nasional maupun internasional. Sejauh ini, mereka telah mendaur ulang sekitar 47.488 limbah elektronik.

Angka tersebut termasuk lebih dari lima juta telepon bekas yang diserahkan di toko-toko NTT Docomo. Stasiun pengumpulan limbah juga ditempatkan di kantor pos dan fasilitas umum lainnya.

Target panitia untuk 2.700 kg perunggu telah terpenuhi sejak Juni 2018, sedangkan untuk emas sebesar 93,7 persen dari target 30.3 kg, adapun 85,4 persen dari target perak 4.100 kg telah terekstraksi pada Oktober 2018.

Masih Belum Terpenuhi

Jumlah emas dan perak yang ditargetkan memang belum sepenuhnya terpenuhi, tetapi komite mengatakan akan ada cukup bahan untuk memenuhi target tersebut.

Sampah elektronik telah menjadi perhatian utama bagi pecinta lingkungan. PBB menggambarkan e-waste sebagai salah satu aliran limbah yang tumbuh paling cepat di dunia.

Ratusan Ribu Ton Limbah Elektronik

Jepang sendiri menghasilkan sekitar 650.000 ton limbah elektronik setiap tahun. Meski begitu, kurang dari 100.000 ton limbah dikumpulkan untuk memproduksi elektronik baru.

Namun, banyak kota di Jepang gagal untuk memenuhi target pengumpulan yang ditetapkan oleh Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup Jepang.

Harapannya bahwa prakarsa medali olimpiade ini, dapat mendorong lebih banyak daur ulang sampah elektronik.

          Three arrested in Florida in violent scheme targeting undocumented immigrants; four more at large      Cache   Translate Page      

A complex and horrific conspiracy targeting undocumented immigrants has been uncovered in South Florida, and it relies heavily on Donald Trump’s cruel immigration policies. A group of seven criminals in Davie, a town of 91,000 that’s roughly 25 miles north of Miami, kidnapped, beat, and robbed an unnamed man on Feb. 2, and threatened him with deportation if he went to the police after they released him.

“It is believed that this group is targeting undocumented immigrants and robbing them for their cash,” Davie Sgt. Mark Leone said. “We believe that they target these undocumented immigrants because they are less likely to report being a victim of a crime to the police.”

Since Trump converted ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) into a state police force just days after his 2017 inauguration, activists have warned that undocumented immigrants would be pushed into the shadows due to deportation fears. And sure enough, they were right. Here’s a report out of Texas, just months after Trump ramped up his vicious hunt for the undocumented.

Houston police say crimes reported by Latinos have fallen by more than 40 percent in the first three months of 2017 compared to the previous year.

Across the Houston area, (immigrants), documented and undocumented, all pepper police officers with similar questions:

Is it worth the risk to report a robbery? Will I be stopped driving to work? Will you ask about my immigration status?

The report goes on to describe immigrant families who were so afraid of deportation, they hid from rescue teams during Hurricane Harvey.

          Comment on Huawei, 5G and the Fourth Industrial Revolution, by Godfree Roberts      Cache   Translate Page      
Havent you notice since Google got a Indian CEO, its search engine is getting worst, heavily censored(try duckduckgo to compare) giving mostly rubbish, even start throwing up unrelated India links everywhere to promote india. Youtube is showing Indians Dr if you search for surgery…its indianized.
I have not. But also I have been using Google search much less lately.
Some techie here might able to share some nightmarish experience. Itsnot coincident that no Indian company produces any high tech products(see what’s India export?), in midst of West propaganda to inflate India might.
I've seen Indians bosses play blatant ethnic nepotism in the workplace. I've worked in an environment where the big team boss was Indian and the Indians tended to get promoted much faster. A white friend of mine who placed top in math contests regards Indians and Jews as the two groups which do most damage to America. He said that at a place where he worked Indian managers got together to protect an Indian fuckup who screwed up the product from getting fired. When I was an undergrad, I took a grad course where we had to partner up with somebody to write some term paper. The person I partnered up with was an IIT grad who if I remember correctly placed near the top on the IIT JEE. To my surprise, I ended up doing almost all the work. I can't really complain about that alone because I plead guilty to letting my partner do all almost all the work in some other such projects. It was, mostly, his attitude; he acted like he was a boss. A few years later, I met him again, and we chatted. Most memorable was how he said that what he really doesn't want to be is a manager, mentioning how once when looking through the window towards some manager meeting at work, the managers all appeared quite miserable. But now, after looking him up, he is... an Engineering Manager! I know another guy, white, who said that his Indian manager encouraged him to raise suggestions on some company mailing list which ultimately got him into some trouble. I've also had an Indian professor who graded me unreasonably harshly and much disrespected me despite my answering many questions, making many meaningful remarks, and demonstrating enthusiasm and initiative for the subject. My personal experience and talking with others has told me that Indians especially like to target Chinese in their nasty office politics. Towards whites/Jews, their attitude is one of deference, towards themselves, it's one of nepotism, towards Chinese, it's one of malice. Also, I had written on my blog before of an Indian scheduling coffee meeting with executives as an intern. Not only that, he rambled on to me about how Chinese companies are copycats with no innovation, how the Chinese government is really inhumane, etc. He accused me of being brainwashed by the Chinese government. That blog post is https://gmachine1729.com/2018/06/16/the-brahmins/. So, from the Chinese national interest, better for more Chinese to stay in China, contribute to the Chinese economy, while letting more Indians take the H1B spots in America.
in midst of West propaganda to inflate India might.
Do you really think there is that? Remember that Indians are fluent in English. Not only that, but they love to talk. So, among its many consequences, you have a bunch of low quality Indian content on Quora. India is, of course, deeply entrenched within the Anglo system with centuries of British colonialism, the English language, and a Western style political system. So even if the West much dislikes India, the West has to deal with her, with India's performance necessarily an indirect reflection of the West. I think Westerners who are not in denial know that India is grossly incompetent and dysfunctional, but they are still pressured to delude themselves otherwise and do some damage control, much through media/propaganda.

The presence of transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) in the tumor microenvironment plays a main role in limiting the clinical efficacy of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitors. Not only does TGF-β suppress the normal anti-tumor action of natural killer cells and T cells, but it is also involved in many processes of cancer progression and metastasis, such as fibroid cap formation, epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, and angiogenesis. This panel will discuss the latest findings in the role of TGF-β in tumor formation and progression, as well as treatment advances that target PDL1 and TGF-β pathways simultaneously.

About 20% of patients treated with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 checkpoint inhibitors respond to therapy. At issue is the existence and action of immunosuppressive cytokine transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) in the tumor microenvironment, which inhibits the normal anti-tumor action of natural killer cells and T cells. TGF-β is involved in many other processes of cancer progression and metastasis such as fibroid cap formation, epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, and angiogenesis. This activity will explore new horizons in immune checkpoint inhibition with bispecific bifunctional fusion molecules that pharmacologically target the PD-L1 immunosuppression pathway and serve as a TGFβ trap. Clinicians will gain insights into the rationale for development of such a molecule and its mechanisms of action, and explore preliminary clinical experience in a variety of solid tumor types to improve patient outcomes.

Fugitive Venezuelan Colonel Is Shown Confessing to Ties to CIA and Coup Attempt | 07 Feb 2019 | A fugitive Venezuelan colonel captured last month after slipping back into the country was shown on video Thursday confessing to ties with the Central Intelligence Agency and Colombian officials. Colonel Oswaldo Garcia Palomo, 54, who’d publicly professed plans for rebellion...described logistical support and freedom to enter and exit Colombia as he worked last year to overthrow President Nicolas Maduro's government. "We managed to get a very important group together," Garcia said. He added that he spoke with a CIA agent in Tampa, Florida, who told him the U.S. was considering military action in the first quarter of 2019. Garcia said he told the agent he and his group wanted to carry out a coup without U.S. help.

          Segera Dilantik Jokowi, Emil Dardak Ungkap Program Kerja 99 Hari Pertamanya      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Khofifah Indar Parawansa dan Emil Elestianto Dardak dilantik Presiden Jokowi sebagai Gubernur dan Wakil Gubernur Jawa Timur pada 13 Februari 2019. Emil mengaku telah memiliki rencana dan target kerja dalam 99 hari pertama pemerintahannya bersama Khofifah.

"Ada, tapi karena beliau (Khofifah) juga punya kesibukan yang luar biasa, kami baru bisa sedikit-sedikit membahasnya," kata Emil di Trenggalek, Minggu (10/2/2019).

Emil mengatakan, dirinya bersama Khofifah sepaham untuk menajamkan apa yang ingin dilakukan di 99 hari pertama. "99 hari ini kami bagi dalam tiga tahapan, yaitu apa-apa yang akan dilakukan dan dikerjakan di 33 hari pertama, lalu berikutnya 33 hari kedua, dan 33 hari ketiga," ujarnya.

Tanpa mengurai detail program prioritas kerja dimaksud, Emil mengilustrasikan penggunaan istilah (target kerja di) 99 hari pertama karena alasan simbolis. Angka sembilan dinilai angka yang baik, memiliki nilai maksimal, tertinggi dalam hierarki bilangan angka.

"Beliau (Khofifah) senang angka sembilan, dan 99 kan mirip 'asma'ul husna'. Bagus," ucap Emil Dardak.

Kendati memiliki program kerja yang ditarget waktu mulai jangka 33 hari hingga jangka 99 hari itu, Emil menegaskan bukan berarti semua serba jangka pendek. Akan tetapi lebih dimaksudkan sebagai motivasi dan tolak ukur untuk mendapat capaian-capaian tertentu.

"Kayak program ada yang bisa langsung jadi, tapi ada juga yang desainnya harus matang di 99 hari pertama. Itu yang akan kami petakan semua mulai dari (janji program kerja) Nawa Bhakti Satya mulai Jatim sejahtera hingga Jatim Harmoni," ungkap Emil Dardak.

 

Nawa Bhakti Satya

Nawa Bhakti Satya yang menjadi arah, visi dan misi pembangunan yang diusung pasangan Gubernur-Wakil Gubernur Jatim terpilih, Khofifah-Emil itu terdiri dari sembilan program kerja, yakni:

Bhakti ke-1: Jatim Sejahtera. Yaitu mengentaskan kemiskinan menuju keadilan dan kesejahteraan sosial.

Bhakti ke-2: Jatim Kerja. Yaitu "millineal job center" dengan cara memberikan "job training", pendidikan vokasi, membantu "starting-up" usaha, membantu promosi bagi usahawan muda, dan membantu pembiayaan usaha pada tahap awal usaha.

Bhakti ke-3: Jatim Cerdas dan Sehat. Yaitu pendidikan dan kesehatan gratis berkualitas.

Bhakti ke-4: Jatim Akses. Yaitu membangun infrastruktur dalam kerangka pengembangan wilayah terpadu, dan keadilan akses bagi masyarakat pesisir dan desa terluar seperti Kawasan Lingkar Wilis, Lingkar Bromo, Lingkar Ijen, Gerbang Kertasusila, Koridor Maritim Pantura Jawa-Madura, Koridor Maritim Selatan Jawa.

Bhakti ke-5: Jatim Berkah. Yaitu dengan memberi tunjangan kehormatan bagi imam masjid di kampung, pesisir, dan pulau terluar. Kemudian perluasan tunjangan kehormatan bagi hafidz-hafidzoh. Penguatan peran pondok pesantren dalam mendorong partisipasi sekolah dan beasiswa guru diniyah S2.

Bhakti ke-6: Jatim Agro. Yaitu memajukan sektor pertanian, peternakan, perikanan darat dan laut, kehutanan, perkebunan untuk mewujudkan kesejahteraan petani dan nelayan.

Bhakti ke-7: Jatim Berdaya. Yaitu memperkuat ekonomi kerakyatan dengan berbasis UMKM, koperasi, dan mendorong pemberdayaan pemerintahan desa. One Village One Product One Corporate and Agropolitan.

Bhakti ke-8: Jatim Amanah. Yaitu menyelenggarakan pemerintahan yang bersih, efektif, dan anti korupsi.

Bhakti ke-9: Jatim Harmoni. Khofofah-Emil siap menjaga harmoni sosial dan alam dengan melestarikan kebudayaan dan lingkungan hidup.

          Sergio Ramos: Real Madrid Bisa Salip Barcelona      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Madrid - Kemenangan 3-1 Real Madrid atas Atletico Madrid mendongkrak kepercayaan Sergio Ramos. Kapten Los Galacticos -julukan Real Madrid- itu yakin timnya bisa mengejar Barcelona yang sedang memimpin klasemen Liga Spanyol.

"Liga memotivasi kami dan kami ingin terus berjuang untuk itu dan menyulitkan Barcelona," ujar Ramos seperti dilansir Sports Mole.

Real Madrid perlahan tapi pasti mulai menunjukkan tajinya di Liga Spanyol. Ramos dan kawan-kawan baru saja menaklukkan rival sekota mereka 3-1, Sabtu (9/2/2019) malam WIB.

Tiga gol Real Madrid dicetak masing-masing oleh Casemiro, Sergio Ramos, dan Gareth Bale. Sementara, satu gol Atletico dicetak oleh Antoine Griezmann.

Tambahan tiga poin membuat Real Madrid menyalip Atletico dan duduk di posisi kedua. Kini, Real Madrid mengoleksi 45 poin, hanya tertinggal lima poin dari Barcelona.

"Kami telah menuntaskan target kami untuk memulihkan posisi di tabel dan mengurangi jarak dari pemimpin klasemen. Sekarang, kami akan menunggu reaksi mereka," kata Ramos.

 

 

Tampil Pintar

          Murid Rossi Kaget Rebut Posisi Dua di Tes MotoGP Sepang      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Selangor- Murid Valentino Rossi yang baru naik kelas ke MotoGP,Francesco Bagnaia tak menyangka berhasil meraih posisi dua di hari terakhir tes pramusim MotoGP Sepang yang berakhir Jumat (8/2/2019). Soalnya,dia merasa saat ini baru paham 65 persen soal bagaiman menjadi pembalap MotoGP.

Bagnaia, murid Rossi yang pernah belajar di akademi VR46, berada di belakang Danilo Petrucci yang finis terdepan di tes pramusim MotoGP Sepang. Petrucci mencetak rekor waktu lap di Sepang.

Sedangkan Bagnaia yang bernaung di Pramac Ducati hanya terpaut 0,063 detik dari Petrucci. Dia menorehkan waktu lap 1 menit 58,302 detik.

"Tentu saja saya tak pernah menyangka bisa mengukir waktu 1 menit 58 detik. Target saya 59 detik dan meraih 58 detik serta pecahkan reko lama tentu luar biasa," ujarnya seperti dikutip crash.

Bagnaia menggunakan motor 2018 di tes pramusim Motogp di Sepang. Dia juga gunakan fairing yang dipakai tahun lalu.

Perlu Berbenah

Meski tampil memukau, Bagnaia mengaku masih harus benahi banyak hal. Dia kini bahagia karena bisa belajar banyak hal.

"Paling penting saya semakin paham bagaimana mengendarai motor MotoGP, seperti pembalap MotoGP. Saya juga membuat racing line dan utamanya berakselerasi seperti pembalap MotoGP," ujarnya.

Bagnaia mengaku masih 65 persen dalam pemahaman menjadi pembalap MotoGP. Dia berharap bisa terus konsisten.

"Soalnya Anda hanya mendapatkan poin di balapan dan saya mencoba untuk konstan dengan ban bekas," ujarnya.

"Saya ingin memenangkan mobil untuk kualifikasi tahun ini, tapi melawan Marquez bakal sangat sulit."

Buang Gaya Moto2

Pembalap asal Italia ini mengatakan sudah mulai meninggalkan gaya membalapnya di Moto2 seperti telat mengerem dan mengangkat motor usai menikung.

"Hari pertama membalap hampir sama seperti tahun lalu saat di Moto2, lebih cepat di pertengahan tikungan dan penting untuk mengetahui bagaimana mengangkat motor serta gunakan traksi saat keluar dari tikungan," ujarnya.


          Writ in snow      Cache   Translate Page      
Success in meeting the Paris Climate Pact’s most ambitious target might not be enough, a recent study says, to prevent a serious meltdown in the Hindu Kush Himalayas. Released on Monday, the Kathmandu-based International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development’s (ICIMOD) “Hindu Kush Himalaya Assessment” reveals that more than 35 per cent of the glaciers in the region could retreat by 2100, even if the global temperature rise is capped at 1.5º C. This could destabilise the hydrology of large parts of South Asia, China and Myanmar.
Regions in higher altitudes tend to warm faster than low-lying lands. So, a global temperature increase of 1.5ºC could mean at least a 1.8ºC temperature rise in the Hindu Kush Himalayas, the ICIMOD study warns. This will have a major bearing on the ice-fields, which are the largest repository of permafrost outside the polar regions. The region’s snow is the source of 10 major river systems — including the Ganga, Indus, Brahmaputra and Mekong — in India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China and Myanmar. Large-scale warming could drastically alter the river flows in these countries. The receding glaciers could cause a deluge in the rivers during the monsoon while the flows are likely to plummet during the dry seasons, with serious implications for irrigation, hydropower and ecosystem services.
Climate scientists have tried to link the Subcontinent’s erratic monsoons over the past 10 years — days of intense rainfall combined with drought-like conditions — to global warming. They have, however, stopped short of identifying the exact causes of these extreme weather events. The ICIMOD study offers clues that the receding glaciers might be the reason for the changing monsoon. “The number of intense precipitation days and intensity of extreme precipitation have increased overall in the last five decades. If these trends persist, the frequency and magnitude of water-induced hazards in the (Hindu Kush Himalaya) region will increase,” it says. This is a significant conclusion given that developments in the Himalayas are known to have a spin-off on the monsoon in the Subcontinent. The ICIMOD researchers point out that more studies are required to firm up the links between extreme weather events in the higher reaches of the Subcontinent and the erratic weather in the plains. For this, they advocate more data sharing between the countries that share the Hindu Kush Himalayas. Even more salient is their message that political differences between these countries should not come in the way of joint efforts to build resilience of vulnerable communities and shore up the region’s water security. Such cooperation must go alongside meeting the Paris Climate Change Pact’s goals.

          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 producing unexpected results. PLFS also highlights fall in labour force participation rate. Even if true, it does not mention that it could be a result of other factors such as increase in attendance in school and higher education. 
The problem lies with the methodology. The sample size was too small when technology could have facilitated responses from higher number of households. In rural areas the number of households surveyed were a mere 55,000. This has to be seen in the context of 160 million households in the country. The percentage works out to be 0.03%--- about 3 households for every 10,000. Even in household selection, 75 % weightage was given to households who have higher number of 10th pass members above 15 years. In the present scenario there is huge probability of continuing education for above 15 years. Most people in 15-18 group would be continuing education. Those still studying would respond in a manner that they are looking for employment. The sample size is so small that sensitivity of the data will be very high. In urban households one household giving wrong answer in each area will showing labour force participation rate number in the range of 25%. There is no source of validation with real time data. The surveyors used were from outsource agency- not necessarily the right person for such interaction. Though these surveyors were provided with a tablet for recording data, they were not given SIM and data connectivity. Even locations were not captured. I am amazed that in today’s world real time data and technology was not utilized. So what is the true picture of employment in India? We now have extensive data available on people contributing to Social security benefits are provided through the Employee Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), the Employee State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) and the National Pension Fund (NPS). Between September 2017 and November 2018, a total of 73,50,786 new subscribers were added to the EPFO, an average of 4.9 lakh subscribers each month. ESIC tells a similar story as well. On average, between September 2017 and November 2018, approximately 10 lakh-11 lakh subscribers were added each month. Even if we consider a 50% overlap with EPFO data, it yields about 10 lakh workers being added to the formal workforce per month, or 1.2 crores annually. An analysis of NPS shows that we are adding close to 6 Lakh+ Jobs in Central and all State Governments. 
Another complementary measure of employment can be based on the transport sector. Consider the sale of commercial vehicles. Net of exports, approximately 7.5 lakh vehicles were sold in FY18 in India. Considering a replacement rate of 25%, this still translates to 5.6 lakh new commercial vehicles added to the transport sector. Assuming a capacity of employment for each commercial vehicle at 2, we can infer that 11 lakh jobs are annual added in this sector alone. To this if one added the sales of cars, 3 wheelers and tractors around 30+ Lakh Jobs are created in this sector alone yearly. 
Self-employment is also a critical source of employment generation in India. Job creation among professional service providers such as chartered accountants, lawyers and doctors is also robust, as per data from their respective regulatory bodies. Income Tax (IT) data provides an indication on the number of new self-employed professionals. As per data available, an average of 150,000 tax paying professionals were added annually between assessment year (AY) 2014-15 and AY 2017-18. One can further assume that most of these professional tax payers hire support staff, likely to be below the threshold of twenty employees which then makes social security registration mandatory. Assuming each professional hires a support staff of five, this indicates an average of 7,50,000 jobs being created annually. Under MUDRA Yojana 15.56 crore loans have been disbursed amounting to over 7 lakh crore. Over 4 crore first time borrowers have started their business enterprises. Such a huge magnitude of loans being given to small entrepreneurs has created gainful employment. 
A study by McKinsey Global Institute entitled “India’s Labour Market- A New Emphasis on Gainful Employment” has highlighted that increased government spending, rise of independent work and entrepreneurship have boosted incremental Job for 20-26 million people during 2014-17. According to an analysis by the Ministry of Tourism, the tourism sector alone has created 14.62 million job opportunities in the country during las four years. While the above statistics do not present the full extent of employment generation, but they do lend irrefutable and concrete evidence of the extent of employment being generated across the country. There is certainly enough evidence to doubt and even contradict the narrative of joblessness with shrinking workforce and rise in unemployment. Does this mean that India has no challenges related to employment? That’s also not true. Over the last few years, India’s next challenge is to meet the aspirations of people who are employed but want higher incomes. This requires creation of enough well-paying jobs for existing industrial workforce and for those who want to move out of agriculture. This requires policies that encourage productivity growth in the country, which necessitate concerted efforts towards formalisation, urbanisation and industrialisation of Indian economy. Regarding the PLFS, I feel that the experience of the pilot should be used to further improve the survey through use of technology, accessing real-time data, and increasing the sample size. The draft estimates just do not add up. The above are issues I would have raised if I had been presented a copy beforehand as member of the Commission or if the full Commission had met to discuss the draft report.

US Ramps Up Air Strikes Against Somalia Islamist Group
Rise in al-Shabaab fatalities is doing little to stem the group’s influence

Tom Wilson in Nairobi
Financial Times

US air strikes killed more than 100 militants in Somalia in January — one of the deadliest months since Washington’s air offensive against al-Shabaab, the Islamist extremist group, began in 2007.

The casualties reflect a dramatic escalation in the use air strikes against the Somali extremist group since President Donald Trump took office. The air offensive is part of one of Washington’s most active — and least discussed — military campaigns anywhere in the world.

In 2018 the US staged 47 air strikes against al-Shabaab targets — almost one a week — killing at least 326 suspected militants, according to figures compiled from statements made by US Africa Command, also known as Africom. So far this year, Africom has executed 12 strikes, killing another 115 al-Shabaab fighters, according to the statements.

The surge in US air attacks, which are in support of the Somali national army, is the result of a 2017 policy change by the Trump administration that gave the Department of Defence greater latitude to authorise strikes. Previously, under guidelines established by President Barack Obama, air strikes outside of active US conflict zones needed to be vetted by multiple agencies and could only be approved if the target posed a “continuing, imminent threat” to the US. The shift has taken an unprecedented toll on al-Shabaab’s rank and file, leaving more than 500 fighters dead in the past two years.

But despite its losses, the Islamist group continues to stage attacks against military, government and civilian targets inside and outside of Somalia, raising doubts over whether the US strategy can ultimately help stabilise the troubled nation.

After 24 militants were killed in a January air strike on an al-Shabaab training camp north of the capital, Mogadishu, the group claimed responsibility for two separate bombings in quick succession: an attack on an Ethiopian military base in southern Somalia, and another on a shopping mall in Mogadishu that killed 11 people.

“The tempo is higher, but nobody looks like they are losing” said Hussein Sheikh-Ali, a former security adviser to the Somali government and founder of the Hiraal Institute, a security think-tank in Mogadisghu.

Under President Obama, the US staged fewer air strikes that targeted senior al-Shabaab officials, according Mr Sheikh-Ali. The Trump administration’s campaign, under the direct control of the Pentagon, appears to be targeting foot soldiers, he said.

“It seems [al Shabaab] is losing low-level soldiers, who are easily replaceable with two to three months training.”

Major Karl Wiest, a spokesperson for Africom, said the air strikes targeted personnel, fighting positions, infrastructure and equipment, as part of wider counter-terrorism operations aimed at reducing al-Shabaab’s ability to recruit, train and plot attacks in Somalia and the region.

“There has been measurable progress in Somalia over time, but there is certainly more work to be done” Mr Wiest said.

Formed in 2004 by a small circle of Islamist militants, al-Shabaab has sought to topple the internationally backed government in Somalia for the past decade. As recently as 2010, it controlled vast swaths of the country, including parts of the capital. Al-Shabaab lost formal control of Mogadishu in 2011 to an African Union force, but maintains influence in the city and continues to run large tracts of the rural south and centre of the country, with at least 5,000 fighters, according to Mr Sheikh-Ali’s Hiraal Institute.

“The air strikes might slow them but are not stopping or halting Shabaab,” said Mr Sheikh-Ali. “In fact they are getting bolder and in terms of influence they are expanding.”

Al-Shabaab has established its own tax systems and sharia courts in many parts of the country, while the current Somali government, which was created in 2012, has struggled to bring unity amid a decades-long civil war.

“Their governance is stretching and reaching farther and farther,” Mr Sheikh-Ali said. “They are taxing areas that they never taxed, their judiciary system is reaching areas it never reached.”

The resilience of al-Shabaab’s political and social apparatus means that air strikes alone are a dead-end, according to Rashid Abdi, Horn of Africa program director at the International Crisis Group.

“Somalia’s problem is essentially political,” he said. “It is a society that is deeply divided, and as long as you have a deadly organisation like al-Shabaab able to feed on these social divisions, you will continue to have problems.”

          District court's pretrial ruling on damages and ITC scheduling order: no good news for Qualcomm in Apple dispute      Cache   Translate Page      

A few months after Apple sued Qualcomm two years ago, the chipmaker started a patent enforcement campaign in three jurisdictions (U.S., Germany, and China). Almost two years have passed, but Qualcomm has yet to prove two thirds of its enterprise value (that's what the company's patent licensing business accounts for as was stated repeatedly during last month's FTC antitrust trial) in litigation. If one focused on only a few mainstream media headlines, one might be (mis)led to believe that Qualcomm gained serious leverage in China and Germany, and had a decent chance of achieving the same in the U.S., but headlines can answer only some of the world's most important questions. Patent enforcement isn't one of them.

It's one thing to obtain a favorable ruling. It's another to obtain a favorable and impactful ruling on a lasting basis. As fast-paced as this industry undoubtedly is, ephemeral results don't get major disputes settled.

There's no indication (otherwise the stock market would know) of Qualcomm's Chinese injunctions having had an impact on Apple's ability to sell or make products there. At least for the time being it appears that software updates have indeed solved the problem, which is plausible since that's what usually happens when non-standard-essential software patents are enforced. I've been interested in this subject since my NoSoftwarePatents campaign, which I started in 2004, and I've never seen a case where a software patent killed an entire product. The response has always been a software update. There's no reason to assume it shouldn't work in China.

Patent injunctions ban products that come with a particular set of technical characteristics. They don't ban products just based on their name regardless of what's inside. That would be the domain of trademark law.

As for Germany, most of Qualcomm's lawsuits there have been a failure even in strictly formal terms. The one injunction (technically, a pair of injunctions over the same patent but enjoining different Apple entities) Qualcomm obtained there

Guess how many of the mainstream media--even if one includes high-traffic IT-specialized websites--that reported on the German injunction cared to publish a follow-up on one of those three developments, or (which would make the most sense) the combination of all three?

None. At least I can't google anything. What I've been able to google, however, is that they all got the amount of the required deposit wrong until Qualcomm announced that it had, as only this blog had said from the beginning, laid down approximately $1.5 billion (all other media had previously stated only half of that figure).

Forget mainstream media headlines. Seriously, forget them when it comes to patent litigation. The general public will pay attention to a product "ban" even if it's more or less inconsequential. Some reporters struggle with legal procedures, but even those who are familiar with litigation in general often miss the specific procedural aspects of patent infringement and invalidation proceedings--or at least the technical aspects, but the economic relevance of a patent injunction depends on technical implications.

The beauty of the Internet is that those who really care to know what's going on have more choices than ever, and somewhere one may find the actual facts, as opposed to fake news. The workaround for that German injunction is a great example: an indie website, WinFuture.de, found out about it from retailers. The news agencies didn't. Nor did the major IT news networks. But the latter all reported on the "ban."

Getting back to the actual subject. Qualcomm has apparently had zero impact in China (other than headlines) and next to zero impact in Germany (again, other than headlines). What about the U.S.?

  • Qualcomm's first ITC complaint against Apple is down to one patent, and the Commission (the six-member decision-making body at the top of the U.S. trade agency) asked nine questions, any one of which could be answered in a way to dispose of whatever little is left of that case. In that case, the public interest (with a view to which an Administrative Law Judge advised against an import ban regardless of the merits of the infringement allegations) won't even have to be analyzed. Apple and Qualcomm submitted comments on the aforementioned nine technical questions and the public interest last week, but they are are still sealed.

  • In mid-September, an evidentiary hearing (= trial) was held in the investigation of Qualcomm's second ITC complaint against Apple. No violation was found, and ITC staff spoke out against an import ban, though rumor has it that the staff has changed its position on the public interest.

    On Tuesday, ALJ MaryJoan McNamara entered a scheduling order. While she'd have preferred to add only 35 days (= the length of the recent government shutdown) to the due dates in that case, she experienced "ripple effects [from the shutdown] across most of [her] [i]nvestigations,"< so she had to add more time. As a result, the target date for her initial determination on the merits (ID) and recommended determination on remedy (RD) has had to be pushed back from January 22 to March 26. The target date for the final Commission decision is always four months after the ID/RD, i.e., July 26.

    It's not over yet for Qualcomm, but there's a relatively high likelihood now of both investigations ending without a finding of a violation, which--should it play out that way--would be a total disaster for Qualcomm's lawyers.

  • When I first commented on the summary judgment that came down in the Southern District of California companion case to Qualcomm's first ITC complaint against Apple, I focused on the holding that the U.S. equivalent of the German injunction patent wasn't infringed. It's also worth noting that the same order granted an Apple motion to preclude Qualcomm from seeking pre-suit damages. This means that even if Qualcomm prevailed on the merits of any of the patents-in-suit in that San Diego action, the damages period would begin in the spring of 2017. As a result, that case (which will go to trial soon) is about a small amount of money--I'm wondering whether it's even going to be enough to cover, in the best case for Qualcomm, the litigation costs.

    For the sake of complete coverage, the summary judgment order agreed with Qualcomm that Apple could not hold one particular prior art reference against one of the patents-in-suit. However, Qualcomm's motion with respect to another prior art reference targeting the same patent was denied, so the patent might still be deemed invalid--and with all the progress Apple and Intel have made with their petitions for PTAB IPRs (inter partes reviews), Qualcomm's patent invalidity worries are huge.

It's easier to make patent royalty demands, or to propose arbitration, on the basis of owning 130,000 patents than to prove that a single one of those patents

  • is actually infringed,

  • is valid,

  • is not licensed,

  • is not exhausted, and

  • can't just be worked around with a software update or minor hardware modification.

Filling your Organization’s Traffic Canvas with the Colors of CRO. Vasundhra Sat, 02/09/2019 - 13:29

Ever attended an art gallery and witnessed how modern artists use canvas to speak their thoughts?

By looking at the art and paying attention to their creation a lot of “Ohhs” and “Ahhs” and expressions of awe with wonder tells us whether it has sufficiently aroused the engagement or not.

But at the core of this practice, the whole idea of thinking an endless number of ways in which visitors attend an art gallery always sustain in the mind of an owner. 

More visitors means more conversions, which results in better progression. 

Customer experience and engagement - 2 things thrived by every art gallery owner.

Right?

Today most marketing teams are structured to drive traffic towards websites that seek to generate traffic and hopefully even more profit. 

Yes, it might be an oversimplification of the trend, but that’s the standard marketing playbook. That’s where Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) comes in. 

But, What exactly is CRO?

Let's discover. 

Everything about CRO

In internet marketing, conversion optimization, or conversion rate optimization is a system for increasing the percentage of visitors to a website that converts into customers, or more generally, takes any desired action on a webpage. The whole process involves understanding how users move through a particular website, what actions they are taking, and what's stopping them from completing their goals. 
 

images of ROI, targeting, usability, A/B testing, multivariate, credibility & landing pages in the middle there is conversion rate optimization


Importance of CRO 

  • Pay per click

The general idea of pay per click advertisement was that it targeted the audience fast by selecting options of what they could see. And you would agree on the fact that nowadays “pay per click” (Google Adwords) prices have hiked up to an extent where it is evident that it is directly affecting the conversions. Also with the increase in digital devices and people getting indulged in technology more businesses have become digital. 

  • Enhancing online competition 

Now that more people are becoming tech-savvy, competition among retailers has increased a lot. Some of them are simply eating away small retailers. That means if you want to convert your visitors into customers, you need to have a website that should be easy to use and easily customizable.  

You can take the help of Drupal as your website platform. It is one such CMS that allows you to set up your website easily and customize it as desired. 

Conversion Optimization has the benefit of allowing you to stay ahead of the curve in terms of competition, by providing you with insights on what's going on with the competitor's website.
  • Combating the rising cost of digital marketing

Let’s face it pay-per-click isn’t just the only thing which is rising in the market. Digital marketing in this area is giving good competition to any sort of “traffic source” ever known. 

The whole point of marketing is to direct the users towards your website.  But how would you make sure that most of them actually make a purchase?

This is where CRO comes to the rescue.

By increasing the number of page visitors who make purchases, CRO helps in improving the conversion rates by simply compacting the cost of digital marketing
  • Streamlining the business 

A website that is continuously being optimized looks more legitimate than the ones which are not doing that job. 

Why?

Well maybe due to the fact that the ones which are not being optimized are not providing a clearer path to the landing pages. Clear landing pages for an online retailer means having an inventory that can easily search or getting a clearer view of the categories. 

  • Saving a large amount of money 

So how can spending a large amount of money on your website result in saving money? 

You’ll find that spending less money on each customer would actually produce more money. Maybe you are not necessarily saving a lot, but you are definitely making a lot more. 

Which eventually balance out both. 

  • Improving the efficiency and layouts 

If you are working with an affiliate organization or the marketers, you would find out that many online retailers find CRO to be a good way to get news out about their products, through a platform that already has an engaged audience, CRO makes your website more valuable to your affiliates, and to any other marketing platforms.
When a higher number of users who click-through to your webpage actually makes a purchase, your affiliates, pay per click advertisers, social media marketing campaigns, etc., make more because you are making more.  

Common misconceptions related to CRO 

There are some businesses that see CRO be an unnecessary expense, an expense that doesn’t really move their business ahead.

Whereas most of them see it as a golden bolt for their marketing woes, a key for high traffic and more leads. 

Using it or not usually it is better than having misconceptions that lead to misguiding and wasting of resource and time. Among which some of them are:

  • CRO is a single skill 

One of the biggest misconceptions among business is an entrenched belief that CRO is a single skill set. In other words, CRO is a broad practice that encompasses a wide range of skills. To be effective at conversion rate optimization, you require three skill sets:

Copywriting: Whether you can write a persuasive copy or not would have a great impact on conversion rates.

Design: Starting from UI/UX to its choice in graphics depends highly on the rate of conversions.

Analytics: It is important to have someone with special and necessary skills to analyze your result. 

  • It is all about best practices

Running or stumbling upon blog posts and articles that tell you the best practices on boosting up your conversion rate has become standard now. 

And going ahead and implementing those practices as written on the write-ups is conventional. But do these tricks really work?

The truth is that there are no particular one-size-fit best practices that can lead you to the path of better conversions. Your focus should always be on removing barriers that hinder with the flow of conversions.  

  • Making small changes that lead to big and better rewards
     
Image of two poster having a girl divided inside a square. The first is having short content with 102.5% green up arrow and the other is having big text with 22.7% red down arrow

 

The above pictures clearly describe that how changing the content length affected the conversions and resulted in 90% more clicks. 

Going by this case study, you might be tempted to find the silver bolt where making a minor change reaped into great news. 

In truth case studies like these are entirely misleading and provides you with only partial information. They don’t tell you that:

How long the tests were done?

Whether the traffic remained constant throughout the testing period?

What all changes were made on the website?

  • It is all about split testing 

Most people think that CRO is all about split testing site elements. 

The truth is that CRO is all about measuring your customer's actions and remove the convention barriers. 

To do this start by basic user needs and understanding the psychology of the customers. This model would help you to focus on the things that should be worked on:

A pyramid with five sections where the text is written as functional, accessible, usable, intuitive and persuasive

 

  • Focusing on CRO alone builds a successful business 

Due to the immense love showered on CRO and per digital marketing, it is believed by the companies that they are winning the game of online business. 

True, that CRO might increase your conversion from 1% to 2%, which yes has a great impact on sales, but to reach those heights of success you need to take a closer look on traffic, brand, and customers. 

So What is the Structured Process in CRO?

  • Defining your conversion actions 

The conversion actions can be defined based on the business goals and then they can be implemented on web analytics. Promoting and producing content in one of the actions which should be implemented as soon as possible. The content technique would require you to do be indulged in practices like:

  1. Targeting email marketing
  2. Marketing automation 
  3. Producing demo
  4. Live events
  5. Case studies

The content at this stage revolves around customer-relationship management through segmentation. When you segment your audience based on age, gender, geographical position, professional role, etc., you are better equipped to offer them targeted content that interests them

  • Understand the prospects

A better understanding of the prospects helps in better converting of offers. This is the stage where you look for indirect customers acquisition and brand awareness.  Begin by mapping out the current situations and forming a clearer idea on your target audience, objectives, market, KPI’s and the current result. Knowing in advance that where you stand and what you want to achieve provides you with more context.

  • Research and Analytics

Once you have the insights into your current situation and objectives, it is the time for you to analyze them. In the analysis phase, you would want to employ web analytics and the other sources of information to form a hypothesis that can then be tested. It could include the heatmaps, tests, insights etc.

This would make sure that your insights are based on the actual behavior of the users and not on the basis of superstitions.

  • Implementing a challenger and Testing the hypothesis 

For implementing a good challenger you need to choose a suitable testing method and then run a test. It involves the turning up of backlogs and matrix into a measurement plan. This is one of the most crucial parts of CRO. 

Examining the hypothesis on basis of multiple tests results in a good number of visitors and websites. 

  • Validating 

After setting up and running the tests, you analyze the results. This generates insights that you then subsequently test. CRO is a continuous process of learning and refining. After setting up and running the test, you analyze the result. This then generates insights that can have a subsequent test. 

Testing for CRO 

Conversion Rate Optimization Test are the ones that refer to the various types of testing methodologies. They are used to identify the best possible version of a certain site that brings in the most valuable traffic.

  • Principles of CRO 

Speed

Back in 2009, Google conducted experiments which described that slowing down the search results page by under half a second resulted in 0.2% to 0.6% fewer searches.

These results now might not sound like big numbers, but for Google (which processed roughly 40,000 searches every second ) the number resulted in 14,400 fewer searches every minute and according to Google itself, people have become more impatient. Thus making speed an important factor
 
Singularity 
 
A single take away “Less is more” is just about right mantra which should be followed by every website owner. 
Many landing pages contain multiple offers.
 
They shouldn’t.
 
Why?
 
Having just one and improved campaign clicks help in increasing the conversion rates

Identification

Identifying your audience and their aspirations/desires mean high conversions. In other words - what they want, what matters to them, and what sources of frictions are for them all comes under the section of identification.  

To identify the people you must know them. After all the reason how sales and marketing would see those conversions is only when you identify your own customers. 

Landing Pages

Take an advise and do not clutter your pages or emails to “what if” moments. 

What if the user is to like my page?

What if more audience like the information that is being served on the page? 

What if they want to read my testimonials and case studies? 

If the goal of creating a particular page is to get likes and visitors to subscribe it, then all you should do it is focus on it. Thus, your landing pages should be as precise and simple as they could be. This gives a clearer idea to the audience and your customers on what you are selling. 

  • Testing Methods 

A/B testing

Businesses want visitors to take an action (conversion) on the website and the rate at which a website is able to drive, this is called its "conversion rate."

A/B testing is the practice of showing 2 variants of the same webpage to different segments of website visitors at the same time and comparing which variation drives more conversions. 
 
The one that gives higher conversions wins!
 
The metrics of conversion is different for every site. For commerce, it might be a sale product whereas for B2B it might generate qualified leads. A well planned, data-driven A/B testing makes your marketing plan more profitable by just narrowing it down to its most important elements by testing them and also by combining them. 

Note that every element on your website should influence visitor behavior and conversion rate should be A/B tested. 

\Image of two laptops where one is A having a 23% reb bar sign on the screen and the other is having 37% green bar sign on the screen


Multivariate Tests 

In a multivariate test, you identify a few key areas/sections of a page and then create variations for those sections specifically (as opposed to creating variations of the whole page in an A/B split test). So for example, in a multivariate test, you choose to create different variations for 2 different sections: headline and image. A multivariate testing software will combine all these section specific variations to generate unique versions of the page to be tested and then simply split traffic amongst those versions.

Multivariate testing looks to provide the solution. You can change a title and an image at the same time. With multivariate tests, you test a hypothesis for which several variables are modified and determine which combination from among all possible solutions performed the best. If you create 3 different versions of 2 specific variables, you then have nine combinations in total (number of variants of the first variable X number of variants of the second).

  • Some Testing tools 

Now we know that Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) focuses on simple tests that allow you to compare and contrast layouts, call to action, a design feature, content and even personalized marketing feature to nudge your conversion rate into new.   

Therefore here are some wicked yet sweet CRO tools that would help you with the testing.

Optimizely: Optimizely tool requires a single line of lightweight code that can be added to any website. The user would then have the power to change any on-page elements on the website.

Google Analytics: Most of the website has this tool in-built on the platform. It is one of the most popular testing tools. Google Analytics tool would help you to split your traffic into two pages that you have developed and would let you know which version is best for testing. 
  
Visual web optimizer: This tool specifically helps in figuring out how your testing windows will be after you plug in a few variables. Visual web optimizer is great for the company project and client work.

          OpenSense Labs: DeGov is here for all the Government websites      Cache   Translate Page      
DeGov is here for all the Government websites Vasundhra Fri, 02/08/2019 - 11:13

Today, our interactions with the digital world have surpassed the human interactions so much that the need for the user interface to be appealing and friendly plays an important role in terms of progression. 

Government websites are no different.

The first connection which they have with their citizens is more likely to be an engaging website. One of the most essential tools for meeting the needs of your people or citizens. 

So, it has to be the best. Right?

Creating a functional website with easy navigation not only help officials do better in connecting with their constitutes but also ensures that the public stays well informed all the time. 

Drupal is one such platform which helps you achieve all of this in one go. 

How is Drupal in Government sector performing?  

Drupal is gaining popularity in government sector all over the world. The solidity and flexibility of the platform is the primary reason why the government is moving its online portals to Drupal. Government websites like the white house, Federal IT Spending Dashboard, Data govt. has specifically chosen Drupal for its efficiency. The reason why most of the govt. Websites are choosing Drupal over any other platform is also due to the facts that it is:

  • Secure

Drupal has an excellent track record when it comes to solving and maintaining security issues. The security team (Drupal Community) that works together with other councils watches and ensures that its users are getting the best security practices

The fact that The White House entrusts Drupal as its platform is enough to prove that it is highly secure CMS. There are several security modules that make it a highly reliable platform. Modules like:

Login Security: Drupal sites that are available in both, HTTP and HTTPs provides the user with a lockdown in the login page, and submits the other forms securely via HTTPS. Hence, it prevents passwords and other sensitive user data from being transmitted.

Password Policy: This module forces a user to forcefully create a strong and powerful password. 

Captcha: It is the response test which is specifically constructed for determining the user. To check whether the process is being done by a human and not by a robot.

Security Kit: It provides Drupal users with various security hardening options. This doesn’t let the website compromise the data and information to the hackers and other foreign users. Security Kit presents particular mitigation for cross-site request forgery, cross-site scripting, and clickjacking, among other issues.

Two-factor verification: The two-step verification is a procedure that implicates the two-step authentication method, which is performed one after another to verify the requesting access.

  • Accessible

Government websites are those kinds which are used by everyone, and by everyone, I mean the visually impaired too. Each citizen should be able to access the government website quickly and seamlessly and according to WACG 2.0 (web content accessibility guidelines), every website should provide equal standards to all the people.
Drupal is one such platform which adheres to each and every WACG guidelines with its different modules and provides accessibility to everyone. 

Alt text: This is one of the most important modules when it comes to providing accessibility to a website. With this module, the search engine understands the text of an image or a page and screen readers read it loudly to the user.

Content accessibility: This module checks all the type of fields where the user can enter formatting. Below the content section of the accessibility page, the user is provided with the option to turn the tests on or off using the tab that would appear below the page. 

Accessibility in WYSIWYG: This type of module integrates the accessibility configuration with the WYSIWYG or CKEditor modules, which provide the user with a new button while they are editing the content that checks the work for accessibility issue.

  • Economical

The government budget for software developments cannot be compared to the budget of large enterprises for the same purpose. The government needs to opt for a high-quality solution that does not cost a fortune. High development and maintenance costs may be considered as an obstacle to finding high-quality website solutions.

Thus, Drupal meets these and many other requirements are the reason why the government chose it as there CMS. The Drupal development price is relatively low when it is compared with other CMS in the market. 

  • Scalable

Another great feature of Drupal8 is its perfect scalability. The CMS is suitable for both small survey website as well as the content-rich websites with gigabyte information. 

At the same time, Drupal is capable of handling high traffic issues and problems. Web solution built on this tool is available even when the traffic volume jumps sky high. A great example of the same is UNESCO and CERN web channels. These Drupal-based websites offer a great user experience and thousands of people use it on daily basis. 

  • Easily Customized

When we say government websites we automatically imagine something grey, black, white or something really boring. But one has to remember that these website services both political and non- political purposes. Thus, user interaction and engagement then here becomes a crucial aspect. 

Better user engagement is made possible with Drupal and its modules. The administrator can add blogs, articles, write-ups that contributes highly opportunities and solutions. Not only this but Drupal also gives its user the power to personalize their website according to their needs and requirement, making it a flexible and reliable CMS. 

  • Has superb integration capabilities 

A powerful web solution should integrate seamlessly with third-party applications. Publishing tools, data repository, and other features belong to the list of necessary interactions. 

The integration capabilities offered by Drupal is enormous. It provides numerous options so that the user is able to integrate any type of third party service. 

Drupal Distribution: DeGov to the rescue 

DeGov is the first Drupal 8 open source distribution focussing entirely on the needs of the governmental organizations. It is intended to provide a comprehensive set of functionalities that are commonly used only of the applications that are related to government. 

What DeGov is not?

The DeGov distribution is not a commercial CMS ( developed as well as owned by a single company, and the users usually need to buy a license) and it is not a finalized product. Meaning, DeGov is not a ready solution. The reason is that there are a lot of functionalities and ideas in backlog and hence it is a daily work off process. 

DeGov is an idea to realize the benefits in the public sector with the idea of open source.

Use case related to DeGov

DeGov has 6 use cases and extends its valuable functions to meet certain scenarios. 

  • Publishes information for all the websites that are government based organizations of all level.
  • Service-oriented E-government portals, that closes the gaps between the users/ citizens and administrator.
  • Citizen engagement portals to decline and discuss online.
  • Open311 portal for civic issue tracking.
  • Open Data portal for publishing and creating communities data

Intranet and Extranet of government employees.

Beneath the Canopy of DeGov

DeGov is the sub-profile of the lightning distribution. 

Lightning allows you to create sub-profiles that are entirely based on default lightening distribution profile. Creating a sub-profile enables you to customize the installation process to meet specific needs and requirements. 

By combining DeGov and lightening distribution, it delivers configuration that is specialized to start new projects. Building on top of Lightning, DeGov leverages in a true open source manner that allows focussing on functionalities for the public sector. 

Which problems does DeGov solve?

Editor 

DeGov solves the issues that are all related to complex backends, missing workflow, multi-language as a pain, missing modernity etc. It allows the editors with highest design flexibility in the maintenance of the website as well as simple editing of the content. 

With the help of “Drag and Drop” function, you can easily structure your page even without the help of programming. Predefined page type helps in easy maintenance. In the central media library, all types of media are managed no matter what form or type it is (pictures, PDFs, videos, posts)

DeGov distribution also helps in easy integrating of the social media. Likewise, you can allow the users to easily share the content in form of articles, blogs, and other write-ups. DeGov uses the privacy- compliant integration of social media share buttons. 

Customers and clients 

DeGov solves the issues that are related to the features and high ownership with old and propriety technologies.  It a user-friendly web front with attractive designs. It is responsive and thus adapts to any device and its size.  The use of HTML/CSS makes a website accessible. Likewise, the page can be made translated into several languages. A language switcher and an automatic screen reader translate the workflow easily. 

DeGov websites receive a powerful search function for the website content as well as the documents. This is particularly convenient for the authorities: The administrator search engine and NRW  that is connected to the service so that users can also search the content outside their area of responsibility. 

Companies and developers 

It solves the issue related to high-cost updates and the functionalities that are related to it. The distribution is based on opensource software, as a result, you pay neither for the license nor you purchase it.

Drupal is used in numerous projects thus the basic functions and the functionalities are constantly updated and expanded from time to time. This fixes all the bugs and vulnerabilities quickly. 

Implementations with DeGov

Websites

The DeGov distribution has the ability to release, federal and state portals, as well as internet sites for ministries, authorities, districts, and municipalities. The web pages and the target group-specific portals (or topic pages) can be created easily by DeGov. 

Participation Portals

With participation portals to let the citizens participate in decisions and proposed measures, DeGov distribution has opened doors in terms of communication. Here you can notify, discuss with users, gather valuable suggestions or create polls. From participatory budgeting through bills to constructing methods - portals obtained by DeGov give citizens as a voice.
 
E-Government Portals

DeGov distribution is a great way to implement entire eGovernment portals. Less stress is laid on the editorial content than whole specialist procedures. In this way, DeGov allows the digital processing of administrative processes. The project Gewerbe.NRW was implemented with the help of DeGov distribution.

Why DeGov with Drupal 8?

DeGov modules are Drupal modules which are carefully fit together. This means that the whole system benefits largely with its functionalities. The reasons why Drupal 8 should be with DeGov is because:

  • It is based on Symfony and it uses composers.
  • It is Git accessible for config files.
  • It is cloud-ready and runs like a modern PHP solution 

Better projects with DeGov

A case study on Gewerbe-Service-Portal.NRW

The new "Gewerbe-Service-Portal.NRW" has been providing citizen friendly services by allowing company founder in German federal state North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) to electorally register a business from home. Its main aim was to provide aid of a clearly arranged online form, commercial registration and that can be transmitted to responsible citizens.

In addition to the business registration, the portal provided with information to the topic “foundation of an enterprise”. Furthermost all the users had access to Einheitliche Ansprechpartner NRW. Also, the online service supported specialized staff in taking up a service occupation.

The portal was developed on the basis of the content management Drupal-based system DeGov and nrwGOV. They chose Drupal because of that fact that it was cost-effective and new technologies could be adapted to the Drupal community. Apart from this Drupal provided with:

  • Higher safety and better quality
  • Independence
  • Comprehensive option
  • Accessibility

The portal aimed at providing more flexibility to the entrepreneur that is eligible to start there own business by saving time through digitization. The electronic forwarding and processing of the application by authorities ensured effective processing within applications. The result was effective and user-friendly communication between the citizens and authorities. Whereas in the near future the Gewerbe-Service-Portal.NRW will develop a comprehensive service platform so that the administrative process could be carried out at home.

In the Nutshell 

So how important is the government website to you?

The answer might have been crystal clear by now. 

As important as it is to have a website, maintaining it a whole different task. Yes, Drupal is making it easy for you by its functionality and distribution.  But the definite art of maintaining it is as important as creating it.

          Ad Blockers, Brave Browser and BrainTree Credit Card Processing SDKs      Cache   Translate Page      

I just ran into an interesting issue with my Web Store. On my site I use a custom Web Store and the payment integration is going through BrainTree's CC Processing APIs. Braintree has both server side and client side SDKs and the site uses the JavaScript SDK to remotely render the partial payment form into the overall order form.

These days it's a pretty common scenario to use a JavaScript SDK that essentially removes the payment detail handling on the server so that the server never actually touches the credit card data. The SDK and the remote hosted form keeps the credit card data on BrainTree's server which reduces the risk of credit cards getting hacked during the payment process. Or, if something does go wrong the responsibility lies with the processor since they are the ones handling the Credit Card transaction data.

Good News, Bad News

The good news is works very well. Order processing is very quick through this remote interface and with BrainTree at least as a bonus you can process PayPal requests just as you do Credit Cards using the exact same process with a different 'card type' - no need to use a separate PayPal order flow. Nice.

But - and there's always a but - today I noticed a fairly major problem: For the last few months I've been using the Brave Browser for most of my Web browsing. Brave is a Chromium based browser that provides most of the features of Chrome without Google tracking you each step of your browsing adventures. Brave also provides built-in ad-blocking by default so overall the browsing experience out of box is much better than you get in stock Google Chrome, because a lot of the crap ad content that makes up a good part of the Web these days is not being loaded.

When visiting one of the payment pages in my store with Brave, I noticed that the payment page wasn't working. Basically the remote payment form wasn't showing up.

Here is a side by side figure of Chrome and Brave of the same order form page: (Chrome on the left, Brave on the right):

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

Notice that Brave doesn't render the payment form and if I open the DevTools I can see that it's failing because of CORS policy.

My first thought is that something was wrong with BrainTree's CORS policy that they are pushing down to my site, because typically CORS errors are related to missing sites in the content policy and CORS headers that are returned from the target SDK server.

Content Blocking in Brave

But alas it turns out that the problem isn't really the CORS headers but rather the fact that Brave is blocking third party cookies.

Now, I can now go in and manually disable that option and then get the page to work properly:

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

I had to enable All Cookies Allowed to enable third party cookies, which BrainTree is using to handle the internal order flow it uses between the JavaScript client component and its servers.

This is likely to be a problem with not just Brave Browser, but any content/ad blocker since third party cookies are a primary source of identity tracking. Unfortunately in this case the third party cookie is required for operation of the order form and not for tracking purposes.

Now What?

So while there's a workaround to the non-loading page, it's not really something that a user can readily figure out which is a pretty big problem for an order form, especially if the user was ready to pay. The last thing we want to do at that point is make the user go - "wait what" or worse "WTF?"...

So, how to address this problem?

Server Side Processing

I'm not sure if there's a real technical solution unless you want to fall back to server side processing which for security reasons is not a good idea.

In my custom store I can actually process either server side or using the client form. But because of the PCI requirements and liabilities, falling back to the server side processing is simply not an option for me. However, this might be for a larger company that has gone through their own PCI certification.

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

Documentation

The only other solution I see is to provide some help to the user should they find themselves in this situation. I've added a link to the form that takes the user to a documentation page that describes what they should see and with some explanation on turning off content blockers.

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

This is not very satisfying but hopefully it might help keep people who hit this problem on the site and get them to disable their content blockers.

Summary

Ah - progress. By offloading payment processing to a remote service I've solved one thorny problem (PCI) and now I've potentially brought in another problem that might keep some customers from being able to place an order. It seems that no matter how you turn things with security, there is always some sort of trade off.

If you're using a browser like Brave you are probably fairly technically savy. It's also very likely that you will eventually run into problems like this with other sites. These days there is so much integration between applications using APIs that require remote scripts and third party cookie integrations and content blockers likely will become a more common problem for users in that more and more legitimate content will end up getting blocked. This whitelisting takes a little work, but it's usually still better than the alternative of getting flooded with ads and trackers.

The hard part is realizing that it's happening. In using Brave I often simply forget that it's blocking stuff and when stuff fails my first reaction is that Brave is not doing the right thing, when really it's the content blocker. For less savvy users this is especially the case since they have no idea why a page doesn't work right and thinking of turning the content blocking off won't come natural. Heck it didn't come as the first thought to me - I googled CORS issues with BrainTree initially, before trying a different browser 😃.

Carry on...

          Maluku Gudang Suara Partai Golkar, Airlangga: Golkar Harus Menang 20 Persen di Maluku      Cache   Translate Page      
AMBON - BERITA MALUKU. Provinsi Maluku merupakan salah satu daerah yang penyumbang suara partai Golkar terbanyak. Hal ini dibuktikan dengan perolehan jumlah kursi baik tingkat DPR, DPRD Provinsi maupun DPRD Kabupaten/Kota, dibandingkan partai lainnya, karena itu, Maluku bisa dikatakan sebagai Gudang suara partai Golkar. Hal ini pun diungkapkan Ketua DPD Golkar Maluku, Said Assagaff.

Menindaklanjuti hal tersebut, Ketua DPP Partai Golkar Airlangga Hartarto, mengatakan sebagai gudang suara partai Golkar maka dalam pileg 17 April 2019, perolehan suara di Maluku harus mencapai 20 persen atau melebihi target nasional 18 persen.

"Sebagai ketua umum partai Golkar kami mempunyai target atau menantang seluruh jajaran kader partai Golkar di Maluku agar perolehan suara bisa melebihi target 18 persen, jadi kalau gudang partai golkar maka harus mencapai 20 persen," ujar Hartarto dalam pidatonya pada Temu kader dan konsolidasi pemenangan partai Golkar, sekaligus pengukuhan caleg Anggota DPR RI, DPRD Provinsi Maluku dan DPRD Kabupaten/Kota se-Maluku yang berlangsung di aula MCM, Tantui, Ambon, Jumat (8/2).

Menurutnya, target 20 persen itu berarti dari kouta 4 kursi DPR RI, maka harus rebut 2 kursi. Sedangkan kursi DPRD Provinsi Maluku yang ditargetkan 8 kursi harus naik menjadi 9 kursi, bila perlu menjabat ketua DPRD Maluku.

"Jika kita tidak lagi menjadi Guberunur dan Wakil Gubernur,  maka ketua DPRD harus Golkar, itu permintaan harga mati," ucapnya.

Sementara itu, untuk Pemilihan Presiden - Wakil Presiden, partai Golkar sudah menentukan arah dukungan kepada pasangan Joko Widodo - Ma'aruf Amin, dimana dukungan tersebut harus merupakan harga mati.

"Saya optimis Jokowi - Ma'aruf menang mutlak di Maluku," yakinnya.

Jelasnya, Golkar adalah partai yang sudah mengembangkan visi negara kesejahteraan di tahun 2045 untuk menjadi negara maju dan sejahtera.

"Intinya indonesia akan menjadi negara maju dan sejahteraan dibawah pimpinan Jokowi. Karena itu wajar kita memikih pemimpin yang berprestasi untuk membawa negeri ini lebih maju dan sejahtera," tandasnya.

          Former Green Beret facing murder charge for Afghan killing      Cache   Translate Page      

In the largest battle in the history of the U.S. war in Afghanistan, Mathew Golsteyn watched to see if the man he believed was responsible for killing two U.S. Marines was coming his way.

Golsteyn, a captain and Green Beret soldier at the time, said he had taken up an ambush position in the Taliban stronghold of Marja when U.S. forces released the man, a suspected Taliban bombmaker known as Rasoul.

What happened next is at the center of an Army investigation that has stretched years, resulting in a murder charge against Golsteyn in December.

Golsteyn didn’t know whether the suspected insurgent, who was unarmed at the time, would walk in his direction. But if he did, to Golsteyn it meant he was going back to insurgent activities and could be legally targeted.

“If [he goes[ any other direction of the 360 that you have available to you but mine, and he doesn’t meet me,” Golsteyn said. “He had been released, and are you going to go back to what you were doing? Or are you going to go somewhere else? If it had been me, this guy’s a— would have beaten feet in a completely different direction.”

The incident first came under scrutiny by the Army in October 2011, the same year Golsteyn was awarded a Silver Star for valor in different actions. Golsteyn said he had planned to join the CIA and go to Iraq in 2012, and in a polygraph test for the CIA he said he had killed an unarmed man and burned the body.

The case has become a cause célèbre among some conservative and veterans groups, and it caught the attention of President Donald Trump late last year after Golsteyn’s wife, Julie, appeared on Fox News. In a Dec. 16 tweet, the president pledged to review the case “at the request of many” and called Golsteyn a “a U.S. Military hero.”

The case also has re-energized long-running arguments about how U.S. troops should behave in combat while guided by rules that their enemies often do not follow, and how the military should treat a war hero if he is suspected of war crimes.

Golsteyn, 38, has rarely discussed the case in public, leaving it to his wife, his civilian attorney Phillip Stackhouse and other supporters. But in a two-hour interview with the Washington Post, he defended his actions and lambasted Army investigators for how they characterized his actions in official reports. Golsteyn said he is grateful for the president’s attention and would welcome a pardon but cannot expect it.

“It’s not an insignificant thing living every day knowing that you’re an enemy of the state,” said Golsteyn, who was recalled to active duty as a major to face the charge. “We are playing for a court-martial. It would be pretty dangerous to be playing for a pardon, and then there is no pardon and we have to go to court-martial.”

The Army has declined to comment on how it has handled Golsteyn’s case. A spokesman, Lt. Col. Loren Bymer, said Golsteyn was charged after new evidence emerged, and an Article 32 hearing is scheduled for March 14 at Fort Bragg in North Carolina to assess whether the case should proceed to a trial.

“As an active law enforcement matter, the U.S. Army cannot comment on or release information related to the case,” Bymer said.

Golsteyn met with The Post in Washington at the headquarters of the International Association of Fire Fighters, a union for which Golsteyn serves as chief of operations. He took the job while preparing to move on from Army life, settling in northern Virginia in August 2016, marrying Julie in May 2017 and having a son with her last year. He also has a 12-year-old-son from a previous marriage.

In Golsteyn’s office at work hangs military memorabilia from his career and a photo of him shaking President George W. Bush’s hand in 2002 as a new graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York. Golsteyn deployed to Iraq in 2003 and Afghanistan in 2009 after undergoing heart surgery in 2006 stemming from an accident at the Special Forces Underwater Operations School near Key West, Florida.

In January 2010, Golsteyn was deployed to Afghanistan with the 3rd Special Forces Group. As commander of Operational Detachment Alpha 3121, he would lead not only his unit but also about 30 Marines and 300 Afghan soldiers in a major offensive against the Taliban involving a total of 15,000 coalition and Afghan troops.

The Battle of Marja would prove to be far more violent than other missions.

For days, Golsteyn and his troops faced hours of gunfights. Explosives laced the city, and he and other service members were frustrated with rules of engagement that were designed to prevent civilian casualties but limited how aggressively they could target the Taliban.

On Feb. 18, a booby-trapped garage door exploded, killing Sgt. Jeremy McQueary, 27, and Lance Cpl. Larry Johnson, 19, Marine combat engineers deployed alongside Golsteyn’s unit. After a search, Afghan forces detained a man with bombmaking material. But Golsteyn said U.S. forces were told they could not keep any detainees because of the amount of resources doing so would require.

Golsteyn targeted the suspected bombmaker in circumstances that are still mysterious and central to the case. With a criminal charge pending, he declined to answer some questions, including how long the man had been free before he was killed, whether anyone else was with Golsteyn at the time and whether he reported the killing to anyone afterward.

“He probably had anywhere from between …” Golsteyn said of Rasoul, before stopping mid-sentence.

“To be honest, I don’t know because I was out [away from the base]. He had a long walk,” Golsteyn continued. “He had a long time to figure out where he was going in life.”

Rachel VanLandingham, a military justice expert at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, said the specifics of how Golsteyn targeted the man are central to the case. If Rasoul showed hostile intent and Golsteyn used authorized tactics to target him, it would appear he committed no wrongdoing, she said. However, if he “was in actuality lying in wait for this guy,” she said, the situation is different.

“In other words, we may have a legitimate killing based on individual self-defense in response to conduct that demonstrates hostile intent, or we could have premeditated murder,” said VanLandingham, who once served as the chief of international law for U.S. Central Command. “Context of the ambush is everything.”

Golsteyn acknowledged disposing of the man’s body after the shooting and said it was not uncommon for U.S. troops to burn remains that went unclaimed in the war. In his earlier statements to the CIA, he said a couple of other soldiers were involved.

“We had bodies everywhere from aircraft fire, sitting in pools of water and we had to, when we came on them, dispose of them,” Golsteyn said. “There is no one to claim them. There was disease and pestilence, and on top of that it’s a source of booby traps and a huge hazard to our force.”

The case has been clouded by characterizations of Golsteyn’s actions in Army investigative reports.

An agent with U.S. Criminal Investigation Command who watched a recording of Golsteyn’s polygraph test wrote in one early report that Golsteyn told his interviewers that he and one other U.S. soldier had taken the deceased Afghan “back to his residence and assassinated him.” But Army officials conceded at a 2015 administrative hearing known as a Board of Inquiry that Golsteyn did not say that, Golsteyn said. The Army declined to comment.

A panel of three officers voted 2 to 1 that the service had not substantiated that Golsteyn violated the law of armed conflict, but it found he had demonstrated conduct unbecoming of an officer.

The Army initially closed its investigation in November 2013 without finding enough evidence to prosecute Golsteyn, even when offering immunity to his fellow soldiers. It pursued a number of administrative punishments instead, including the suspension of his security clearance, the revocation of his Silver Star and Special Forces tab, and the issuing of a career-ending memorandum of reprimand.

The Silver Star was awarded in 2011 for repeatedly braving enemy fire on Feb. 20, 2010, two days after the Marines were killed. Golsteyn was credited with braving fire during a four-hour battle in which he trudged through mud, returned fire, helped an Afghan soldier who had been shot and coordinated airstrikes.

The Army reopened its investigation in 2016, after Golsteyn appeared on Fox News and acknowledged killing a bombmaker in an interview with Bret Baier.

“There’s limits on how long you can hold guys,” Golsteyn said at the time. “You realize quickly that you make things worse. It is an inevitable outcome that people who are cooperating with coalition forces, when identified, will suffer some terrible torture or be killed.”

Golsteyn told The Post that he has found the Army’s investigation dishonest, and he can no longer stay silent about it.

“I spent half of this hell quiet, and if there is anything I know, it’s that I will not get any semblance of due process – any ability to defend myself – if it’s not in public,” he said. “Because it’s the only thing these guys respond to. They do not obey their own rules.”

          Ariana Grande’s ‘Thank U, Next’: A Track-by-Track Review      Cache   Translate Page      
EntertainmentEntertainment, Ariana Grande

The singer’s second album in six months is an ode to realizing things.

Ariana GrandeAriana Grande 'Thank U, Next' Mathew Rodriguez

Ariana Grande blessed the world with her second album in six months when she dropped thank u, next at midnight on Friday. The album already features two number one singles, “thank u, next” and the trap-tinged follow up, “7 rings.”

Sweetener was mostly a light listen, but often felt too much like it was a Pharrell Williams vehicle with Grande as its chanteuse. Thank u, next instead sees the reigning pop queen move into a much moodier place, and after a first listen, all I have to say is: if you’re in a moody place, I want to go to there. The album definitely has a lot of relatable content, as Grande talks about self care, trying to find herself, and the struggle to be authentic amidst pressure to conform.

Here’s a track-by-track breakdown of Grande’s fifth album.

“imagine”
First of all, that title! John Lennon is shaking. Anyway, those who remember and love Grande’s last LP Sweetener remember that she opened the album with the short, schmaltzy “Raindrops (An Angel Cried),” which in many ways felt incongruous to what followed. But, “imagine” does the double duty of being both a great song and a great introduction. Most of Grande’s music this era has been about vibing and “imagine,” a song about wanting to be alone with the person you love, seems concocted in a lab to produce tweets that just say “mood.” Not even necessary to say at this point, but her vocals are also especially on point.

“needy”
What’s best about “needy” is that, as it plods along on a minimalist beat, it genuinely surprises at times. The melody veers into melancholy territory as Grande sings about her own insecurities, which is not only good listening but a great instance of the music reflecting the subject matter. The song has a violin breakdown that sounds like an updated version of the singer’s first LP Honeymoon Avenue and, in referencing her past, shows just how much she’s evolved.

“NASA”
On this banger, Ari demands distance from a smothering loved one, but it’s also very much an ode to self-care, something everyone in Grande’s target demographic — everyone — thinks about. The good news is that the verses are killer and succeed at establishing the kind of mood Grande wants to create. That said, the chorus here feels a little mismatched with the rest of the song. It’s not that it’s bad, but the rest of the song is so chill, that her Toni Basil-like repetition of “space” over and over feels a little underwritten.

“bloodline”
Another banger for anyone who has ever had a ho phase — or who lives ho life — ”bloodline” satisfies in both content and presentation. Not only does it work as your new thot anthem, it’s also the perfect soundtrack as you prep yourself in the mirror for a night out. Of course, there are other theories out there.

“fake smile”
There’s no other way to describe “fake smile” than just luscious. By this point, Grande makes it clear that this album isn’t about anyone else but her. Each song, one after the other, underlines the importance of self-care, self-contemplation, pleasure, and, with “fake smile,” living authentically. Her vocals stand out especially on the song’s pared-back chorus, a simple “Fuck a fake smile” repeated once for emphasis.

“bad idea”  
It’s a given that Grande can sang, but “bad idea” serves as a reminder that she’s not just a singer who can belt, she’s a vocalist who can interpret. A song instantly relatable to anyone who’s ever contemplated calling up the one person they shouldn’t, “bad idea” features the most dynamic vocals on the album, specifically the inflection Grande uses to great effect when she sings the song’s title.

“make up”
“Make up” probably won’t end up being anyone’s favorite song on the album — especially as it seems to veer a little bit from the anthem’s themes of self-actualization — but as far as detours go, you can do a lot worse than “make up.” The song, an appreciation of reconciliation and beauty products,  matches the album’s low-key vibe and helps keep the album’s mid-section buoyant and playful.

“ghostin”
After serving us bop after bop, “ghostin” packs the album’s biggest emotional punch. With lyrics that seemingly allude to Mac Miller, Grande laments that she has to break someone’s heart because she’s mourning the loss of another love. The song might catch you off-guard after a song as light and bubbly as “make up” but its predecessor’s light-heartedness only makes this track’s emotional wallop land harder.

“in my head”
Grande has a problem: she falls for the idea of a guy instead of the guy himself. And with “in my head,” Grande tackles the problem head-on. It features some of the album’s shadiest lyrics — ”Your Gucci tennis shoes/ runnin’ from your issues” — but also some of its busiest production. Though it’s at times noisy, it’s never bad noisy.

“7 rings”
You’ve already heard “7 Rings,” but most striking in the context of the album is how little it sounds like anything else. Most of the album finds Grande searching for herself and rifling through her own baggage, while “7 Rings” leaves contemplation in the rearview in favor of stunting about her wealth. The song has already inspired several rounds of internet discourse and you probably already have your own take on it — but, hey, it’s her second #1, so what does it matter what I say?

“thank u, next”
As Ari says in the song, it was a smash. It was everywhere. It definitely reads a bit perkier compared to the rest of the album, but also feels much more anthemic and singular than its parent album’s offerings, which work best in the context of the album.

“break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored”
Already known as the song and video in which Grande kisses a girl and samples NSYNC, “girlfriend” is an odd album closer, but also, it’s a bop. Of the three singles, it’s the one that feels most at home among the album’s other tracks. This is the last thing you hear on Grande’s fifth album, and it’ll make you want to press repeat.

Final thoughts:
Thank u, next is a darker, more inward-looking Sweetener. What’s best about next is that, though only 6 months have passed since Sweetener dropped, it feels like an evolution for the singer in terms of content, sound and maturity. She’s leaving formulaic pop music further in the rearview (yes, it’s still there!) and this might open the door to more experimental sounds in the future.

No longer a conspiracy theory: MIT scientists confirm they possess technology to beam voices into your head

Tags: bad techconspiracydangerous techfuture techGlitchlaser beamslasersmind controlMITreal sciencetechnologythought controlTwistedweird science

(Natural News) A crackpot theory no more, scientists from Massachusetts Institute of Technology just revealed they now possess the technology to beam voices into your head. For years , the mainstream media has been poking fun at anyone who actually believed the “powers that be” are desperately trying to usurp control over humanity — but some of the latest technological developments are clear indications that a totalitarian regime is brewing on the horizon.

At long last, scientists are now revealing the first wave of technology that could soon be used to bring the world at large to its knees. In 2018, we saw warnings of “pre-crime” policing systems come to pass, and video surveillance technology become more and more advanced.

Now, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers say they have developed the technology necessary to beam voices right into your head. What could go wrong?

Putting thoughts into your head

Scientists from MIT have found not one, but two ways to transmit sounds directly to an individual’s brain via laser beam. A paper on their exploits was published in the journal Optics Letters in January 2019.

In a press release, researcher Charles Wynn said, “Our system can be used from some distance away to beam information directly to someone’s ear.”

“It is the first system that uses lasers that are fully safe for the eyes and skin to localize an audible signal to a particular person in any setting,” he added.

As Futurism reports, a material’s absorption of light can actually produce sound waves. This is called the “photoacoustic effect,” and both methods of sound-beaming technology rely on it to transmit tones, music and recorded speech via laser.

The MIT scientists used water vapor as their “material.” One of their chosen techniques was to “sweep” a laser beam at the speed of sound. By changing the lengths of the sweeping motion, they were able to “encode” different sounds.

As reported by Futurism:

This technique allowed them to transmit sound to a person more than 8.2 feet away at a volume of 60 decibels — about the loudness of background music or a conversation in a restaurant — without anyone between the source of the sound and the target hearing it.

The scientists also tried adjusting the laser beam’s power to encode a message. The team reported that this method produced a clearer response with lower volume.

A dangerous leap into the future

It is no surprise that proponents of this new technology are already promoting its virtues to the public. As usual, the powers that be are promising that the voice-beam technology will be used for “good” instead of evil.

While the MIT scientists say they hope to see the technology used to assist in dangerous situations, researcher Ryan M. Sullenberger disclosed that they also plan on commercializing their tech.

“We hope that this will eventually become a commercial technology. There are a lot of exciting possibilities, and we want to develop the communication technology in ways that are useful,” Sullenberger commented.

This voice-beam technology could be very useful for a variety of purposes — but that doesn’t mean it will be used for things that are “good” for the average person.

While this voice-beaming technology is an undeniably impressive feat, the fact remains that there are probably more “bad” uses for this technology than “good.” MIT researchers say it can be used by authorities to communicate covertly in delicate situations — perhaps during a school shooting event, they propose — but beyond a select few instances, it’s hard to imagine how mass commercialization of this technology is going to be possible without putting the freedom and privacy of the public at risk.

This kind of technology sets the stage for a number of unintended consequences — whether it’s having advertisements sent directly to your brain, or full-blown mind-control, it is painfully obvious that in the wrong hands, voice-beam technology can be used for a number of corrupt purposes.

          Hero Gold Cup: Indian eves start on winning note against Iran      Cache   Translate Page

The first chance of the game fell to the hosts right in the second minute itself. Winger Dangmei Grace latched on to a loose back-pass and raced towards the goal. But the resultant shot, despite being on target was cleared away by the rival goalkeeper.

After the initial scare, Iran began to make their way into the game but the Indians were equal to the task. The half was played predominantly in the midfield as both sides battled for territory with coach Maymol Rocky's side enjoying the better of the chances. 

In the 15th minute, Anju showed some great skill to get into the box and cut in to find Ratanbala Devi. But her first-time shot was wide of the target.

Seven minutes later, Sanju got her head to a cross, but the effort did not have enough power.

India got their next chance in the 30th minute after a searching ball from the right flank caused chaos in the Iranian penalty area. The ball fell to Ratanbala, who had her back to goal and laid it off. But the shot was cleared on the line by a rival defender. 

As the match headed towards the interval, Iran caused a serious scare for the home side as forward Sara Ghomimarzdashti ran through towards goal. Her shot was on target but Indian custodian Aditi Chauhan stooped down to prevent any damage. 

After the breather, India got off to an electric start as Ratanbala played in Sanju and her shot from a tight angle just flied over the crossbar in the 46th minute. 

Spurred, the same duo combined excellently two minutes later to set up the opening goal.

Three minutes later, Indumathi took aim from distance. But her powerful effort whizzed past the post.

Iran looked to look more apply pressure but the Indian defence stood firm. The centre-back pairing of Ashalata Devi and Sweety Devi were excellent in the positioning, while Aditi was calm in her handling marshalling her troops well.

The visitors continued to throw players forward, leaving them vulnerable on the break, and India almost grabbed a second in the manner but were denied by the woodwork. Sanju found space at the edge of the penalty area and went for goal, but her shot came back off the crossbar.

Meanwhile, in the first match of the day, Myanmar recorded a 3-0 victory against Nepal. Win Theingi Tun scored one goal, while Khin Moe Wai grabbed a brace to pick up all three points for the team. (ANI)


          Una escuela que se apasiona por las vidas singulares      Cache   Translate Page      

Una educación en la que “educar” constituye una tarea de “fabricación”, puede considerarse como totalizante, porque su preocupación es meramente formar a ese otro competente para la función a la cual está socialmente destinado.[1]

La totalidad es una barrera en la comprensión de la existencia del otro. En este artículo se pretende abordar el concepto de otredad. Por otra parte, dar a conocer una alternativa heterónoma y responsable para así finalmente repensar la escuela.

La otredad es un acto de reconocimiento por la existencia de otro, ésta permite construir una responsabilidad del Yo con ese Otro basada en la ética [2], y así reconocerlo como existe, respetarlo desde su diferencia y comprenderlo como ser pensante de su propio mundo. Por tanto, la escuela tiene la necesidad de despojar al estudiante de lo institucionalizado para esencializarlo en su propia libertad.

La cultura de la memoria, a la cual hace referencia el profesor de Ciencias Sociales, Carlos Arturo Charria, es, sin duda, una propuesta que genera experiencias en la ciudadanía. El museo histórico en el cual trabaja, es una apuesta social, cultural e histórica que ofrece un aprendizaje pedagógico y humano a través de los sentidos para comprender aquellos que vivieron la guerra.

Este proyecto se basa en narrativas con rostro que, desde el punto de vista educativo, resulta ser una pedagogía de la memoria. En efecto, la escuela para repensarse debe apasionarse por las vidas concretas, por la educación como un acto del recuerdo y la fragilidad como una condición de llegada y estancia en el mundo, pues, como afirmó Elie Wiesel: “una educación sin recuerdo es una educación inhumana”.

Así, la otredad no trabaja con la autonomía, sino con la heteronomía [3] que piensa a la memoria como eje fundamental en la construcción de ese otro que vive un lugar en la escuela. La otredad, permite reavivar los recuerdos, hacer una búsqueda del pasado, fisurar y resistir ante los modelos totalizantes. En otras palabras, la otredad permite educar sujetos históricos conscientes de su papel político que impiden la repetición del olvido.
