COLUMBUS, Ohio -- With two starters out and another not feeling well, and each team favored in five bouts apiece, something had to give somewhere.

Penn State didn't waste any time waiting to see how it would all unfold, as Roman Bravo-Young and Nick Lee scored back-to-back, match-opening upset victories which sparked the No. 1 Nittany Lions to an easier-than-expected 28-9 victory over No. 6 Ohio State Friday night before nearly 13,276 fans in St. John Arena.

If ever a team proved it was No. 1 and virtually unbeatable, the Lions were it. In each of their seven bouts pitting ranked wrestler against ranked wrestler, including two ranked higher, Penn State was the winner.

"We believe in our guys, obviously, but, yeah, they wrestled a great match," Penn State coach Cael Sanderson said outside the locker room after Penn State's 56th straight dual meet victory. "We've got a lot of matches left. This was a great atmosphere but we're happy with the way our guys came in and wrestled today," for sure.

Ohio State coach Tom Ryan was pretty stunned and said Penn State's first two wins took energy out of the Buckeye team. "No, I didn't envision it going this way, I thought we were ready to win,'' he said. "We thought we were. What we thought and what happened tonight were tragically different. I did not think that this would happen.''

MEN OF THE MATCH: Pretty much everyone but Bravo-Young and Lee were the obvious heroes. Bravo-Young's apparent strategy was to make No. 6 Luke Pletcher shoot, which Pletcher did just once. And he almost made it count in the opening overtime period when he put Bravo-Young high in the air but was unable to stop an extremely athletic shoulder roll to freedom by Bravo-Young.

Bravo-Young escaped in six seconds and then had to ride out Pletcher to win. Pletcher's known for his mat wrestling but Bravo-Young rode for the first eight seconds before going out of bounds. He then took a stalling warning by hanging on Pletcher's legs which stopped the clock with eight seconds left. He completed the ride for the win but too enthusiastically slammed his headgear to the mat and caused Penn State to lose a team point.

"He has a lot of talent and he works hard and he's been grinding every day trying to get better and it's starting to pay off for him," Penn State's Jason Nolf said about Bravo-Young.

Sanderson thought Bravo-Young was playing things a little cautious because of his knee injury. "But he can win close matches, he's a tough kid. Great competition tonight and we're happy with our guys' effort,'' Sanderson said about Bravo-Young and the team in general.

Lee trailed 5-2 after two periods against No. 2 Joey McKenna but escaped in the third and took down McKenna just four seconds later. Sensing McKenna, now 14-1, was tiring, Lee cut him free and maintained pressure on McKenna's legs, scooting around off an initial single-leg shot for the winning takedown with 33 seconds left and completing the ride for a 7-6 win.

"I think everyone was yelling on our bench to cut him; he needed to get another takedown," Sanderson said.

TURNING POINT: Bo Nickal's fall wasn't the turning point, it was the exclamation point. He fended off two semi-decent shots from No. 2 Kollin Moore before striking with a single-leg and immediately slapping on a tight overhead cradle and ultimately adjusting his own position to flatten Moore.

"Bo always expects to pin his guys which is a great mentality," Nolf said. "He went out and did what he wanted to do and that's Bo."

Sanderson agreed. "He was ready to go,'' Sanderson said about Nickal. "Bo's a big-match guy and all of our guys...this was a big match for them and they wanted to wrestle well and they did.''

Not surprisingly, as coaches do for their own team, Ohio State's Ryan saw things a bit differently. "That's guy's a pinner," Ryan said about Nickal. "One of the top pinners that program's ever had. "Would I sound silly to say that Kollin Moore can win that match four or five or six weeks from now? I don't think that's silly at all. He got caught and we just have to learn from it and move on.''

BIGGEST SURPRISE: That the Buckeyes not only lost the first two but that Ohio State's Joey McKenna gassed in the third period. He was returning from injury and Ryan said McKenna was a little heavy and his weight cut was bigger than he wanted it to be. "When you wrestle somebody and even though it seems seven minutes isn't that long...when you wrestle somebody who makes you fight for every morsel, you can break down. And you saw Joey as the match went on, he broke down,'' Ryan said.

WHAT WE LEARNED: Name the last team you've seen that can deliver in the clutch better than this Penn State squad. Even Ryan heaped praise on the Lions. "This is one of the great teams,'' Ryan said about the Lions. "I've been in sports for a long time and they have four guys on that team ... they're four of the best college wrestlers that I've seen in the last 25 years. Credit to them. Nolf. Nickal. Vincenzo. Mark Hall. These are all guys who are really at an elite level. This is a really good team (Ohio State) and that (Penn State) was a special team.''

THEY SAID IT:

-- "No. We had to hold our ground in the five weights that we were favored and we didn't hold our ground. The smallest things make the biggest differences. When you land somebody, you've got to be ready for them to pull you up off their hips. That was a tough first one. The team knew we needed that and it took a little bit of energy out of us and the crowd.''--Ohio State coach Tom Ryan on 133-pounder Luke Pletcher allowing Roman Bravo-Young to roll out of his takedown attempt in overtime.

--"Roman's a tough kid. I think he's still in that stage where he' realizing how good he is and his potential. This should be great for his confidence.'' - Penn State coach Cael Sanderson on Roman Bravo-Young

NOTES: Eight of Friday night's 20 wrestlers - four from each team, actually - are among the top 14 in Flo's PFP (pound for pound) rankings. That alone made this dual meet the country's most significant of the season. ... The crowd of 13,276 was a St. John Arena record for wrestling. ...

          Calls to 'abolish billionaires' raise eyebrows, but they've been a long time coming      Cache   Translate Page      

alexandria ocasio cortez

  • A New York Times editorial titled "Abolish Billionaires" introduced many readers to an increasingly strong rallying cry on the American left.
  • Progressive politicians are calling for significantly increased taxes on the rich to counteract exceptionally high levels of wealth inequality in the US.
  • While there may be eyebrow-raising rhetoric around these policies, they aren't radical.
  • This article is part of Business Insider's ongoing series on "Better Capitalism."

For the first time on a large scale, Americans are debating whether to allow the existence of billionaires.

On Thursday, The New York Times published columnist Farhad Manjoo's "It's high time we abolish billionaires" above the fold on the front page of its print edition. While Manjoo is far from the first person to articulate the idea — see freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70% tax rate for income above $10 million or Sen. Elizabeth Warren's call for a 3% wealth tax for fortunes above $1 billion — the unequivocal rallying cry was something different for the paper of record.

The ensuing arguments about his piece were about what you'd expect: ad hominem attacks and the pitting of capitalism against socialism. A Fox News panel called Manjoo "an idiot" and dismissed the critique of inequality as an attack on capitalism. Readers raised examples of "good billionaires."

Democrats have been arguing for years now about the value of socialism, but as Ocasio-Cortez's policy adviser Dan Riffle — known for his Twitter handle "Every Billionaire is a Policy Failure" — alluded to in a tweet, even if AOC, Sen. Bernie Sanders, or Warren are too radical for you, just look at what Trump-appointed Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell is saying.

"We want prosperity to be widely shared. We need policies to make that happen," Powell said on Wednesday, according to the Washington Post. "The U.S. lags now in mobility. And that's not our self-image as a country, nor is it where we want to be. ... We have some work to do to make sure that the prosperity we do achieve is widely spread."

Regardless of an ideological lens, there's a growing consensus: The United States needs a course correction, and decreasing inequality is crucial.

The rich are clearly getting richer

The French economist Thomas Piketty wrote that, "the incomes of the top 1% collectively made up 11% of national income in 1980, but now constitute above 20% of national income, while the 20% of US national income that was attributable to the bottom 50% in 1980 has fallen to just 12% today."

Additionally, he wrote, "while average pre-tax income for the bottom 50% has stagnated at around $16,000 since 1980, the top 1% has experienced 300% growth in their incomes to approximately $1,340,000 in 2014. This has increased the average earnings differential between the top 1% and the bottom 50% from 27 times in 1980 to 81 times today."

It's not wild, then, to call the moment we're in America's "second Gilded Age," referring to the post-Civil War era of robber barons and industry, where the wealthy kept living better and the poor kept getting worse.

Occupy Wall Street remained relatively small in the wake of the financial crisis, but it did make income and wealth inequality, the language of the 99% and the 1%, a prime topic of discussion. Populist sentiment increased throughout the country, and Vermont's democratic-socialist senator and New York's celebrity real estate billionaire did better in the 2016 election than anyone predicted. The latter, Donald Trump, became president and right-wing rhetoric won, but it also brought with it standard conservative policies, like tax cuts for the rich.

'Abolishing billionaires' isn't as radical as it seems

In his article in the Times and during a followup on Twitter, Manjoo proved to be less into the notion of going so far as to virtually capping how much money Americans could make — not even Ocasio-Cortez has advocated for that —but he is in support of significantly higher taxes on the rich. And you don't have to be a radical for that. There have been many polls that show the majority of Americans at this point are in favor of the same thing.

While "abolish billionaires" is an eye-catching phrase with radical implications, raising taxes to pre-1980s levels is certainly not radical, said Stephanie Sterling, vice president of advocacy and and policy at the Roosevelt Institute.

Sterling told Business Insider that questioning the role of billionaires in our society "is an important contribution to the debate," because it's focusing on structural changes that need to take place, to keep extreme wealth from harming the economy.

What the country needs, she said, is "robust antitrust policy, meaningful limits on stock buybacks, much higher tax rates, and the meaningful restoration of the ability to form and join unions." If getting riled up about billionaires leads voters to elect officials who support those policies, that will successfully correct for what she considers to be the mistakes of the past 40 years.

"I think we're all passengers in a billionaire hijacking," author and critic Anand Giridharadas told Business Insider about how the US got to a boiling point. "We were all drugged on the plane, and these guys are now terrified in the cockpit because they're realizing that in the back there we just woke up."

The billionaires themselves are taking sides

Potential presidential candidates and fellow billionaires Howard Schultz and Michael Bloomberg are not fans of Ocasio-Cortez's call for a 70% tax rate for income above $10 million or Warren's call for a 3% wealth tax for fortunes above $1 billion, and have used phrases like "un-American" and referred to chaos in Venezuela as proof of where these policies would lead.

Investor and progressive activist Nick Hanauer, however, saw this coming. Hanauer, whose fortune must approach $1 billion considering he signed Warren Buffett and Bill Gates' Giving Pledge, famously wrote in Politico a few years ago that "the pitchforks are coming."

He told Business Insider that he's been seriously considering the notion that every billionaire is a policy failure, saying "there can be no doubt that the thrust of the argument is correct — that in a country where so many people are barely getting by, or not getting by at all, an economy that mints billionaires is structurally deficient. There is no reasonable moral or practical justification for these disparities in wealth and income."

Hanauer noted that even with significantly higher taxes, America's wealthiest would remain on top, and their buying power would remain relative.

"I also feel strongly that the Neoliberal contention that me getting immensely wealthy does not harm you, and that your objection to it is just petty jealousy is also wrong," he said. "The richer the rich get, the farther apart the rungs of opportunity are stretched. An economy dominated by a few people with infinite wealth is characterized by arms races for status that benefit no one and harm most people."

The AKC Museum of the Dog opened yesterday in New York City. Located at 101 Park Avenue, the museum houses one of the world's largest collections of canine fine art, which includes "Millie on the South Lawn," the portrait by Christine Merrill of the English springer spaniel that lived in the White House with George and Barbara Bush.


In addition to paintings and sculpture, the collection includes a terracotta dog paw print dating back to the Roman Empire and a Victorian dog-pulled cart. There are also interactive kiosks where visitors can match their facial features to a dog breed, learn about the 193 breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club, or practice training with a virtual puppy.

But alas, despite all this homage to and adulation of our canine companions, dogs are not allowed in the museum, except for registered service dogs.

For more information about the museum, read this article at NPR: "Dogs Have Their Day: AKC Dog Museum Opens in New York City"; or visit the museum's website.

“Fire the railguns at their orbital defense platforms! Ignore enemy swarm ships and leave them to our own flyboys. We must punch a hole through their defense line! Once we break through we can drop our planet killing payload right on that city. ”—Captain of The Irradiator

Orbital Bomber is a single level interior map of an orbital bomber. The orbital bomber includes two railguns that can fire in ninety degree arcs that can only fire forward or to the side that flank the bridge at the front of the ship in addition to a large payload of bombs or alternatively rockets or torpedoes fired from launch tubes in the ship’s walls. This alternative loadout turns it into more of a space battleship instead.

 Orbital Bomber is intended for use in far-future science fiction games.

 Adventure hook for use with this map:

 Scorched Mars: As humanity continued to consume all of Earth’s resources, desperate governments and corporations united their pools of dwindling resources to begin a two -tiered project to colonize Mars. The first wave was a terraforming ship with robot caretakers programmed to transform Mars with an included biological cargo of bacteria, fungi, flora, and fauna to be cloned as each stage of the atmospheric change was completed.

The second wave was a colonization ship that planned to arrive to a human hospitable Mars twenty years after the first ship arrived.

What the colonization ship found was not the expected changes, but a still rust red world with little atmosphere. The ship sent probes to the planet’s surface. The probes found the terraforming ship’s landing site. The ship’s alloys had been incorporated into a machine factory city churning out robots, weapons, and ships. The Terran DNA canisters had been smashed open and their contents had been incinerated. The robotic caretakers had malfunctioned in some way and had turned on the human race. The colonization ship managed to get a transmission to Earth of their discoveries just before their probes were smashed and they were attacked by a swarm of machine ships launched from the surface of Mars.

The Earth made a third fleet, a death fleet. The orbital bomber, The Irradiator, was loaded with enough nukes to scour the machine city off the face of Mars with an accompanying starship carrier for fighter cover. The EMP blasts should shut down the machines that the nukes did not melt outright.

But when the death fleet arrived at Mars they found it well defended by orbital defense platforms and machine swarm ship carriers. The machines had more resources and could build faster than the humans. Soon they would be able to invade the Earth based on their current fleet size and projected production. Can the group nuke Mars and stop a terraforming attempt gone horrifically wrong?

          Jesús Vidal: «En la vida, si se persiguen los sueños, se cumplen»      Cache   Translate Page      
En una sociedad donde lo virtual parece tener más peso que lo real o que las propias relaciones humanas, cuatro minutos y medio le bastaron al actor Jesús Vidal (León, 1975) para conmover a toda España el pasado fin de semana con su discurso de agradecimiento por el Premio Goya al mejor actor revelación por su trabajo en ‘Campeones’, de Javier Fesser. La miopía magna que le diagnosticaron de niño y que reduce su visión a un 10 por ciento no le impidió licenciarse en Filología Hispánica y cursar un máster en Periodismo a la vez que alimentaba su auténtica pasión: el mundo de la actuación. Su papel como Marín en la película de Fesser le ha dado a conocer al gran público, pero tras ese debut en el cine hay años de trabajo oscuro y callado, recorriendo la provincia de León como los viejos cómicos de la legua con la poesía y el teatro como únicos aliados bajo el brazo. De todo ello habla el hombre del momento en esta entrevista con Ical. -Una tía suya trabajaba en el Teatro Emperador de León como personal de sala. ¿Aquella puerta abierta al cine y el teatro marcó su infancia? -Sí, por supuesto. Todas las semanas iba dos o tres veces al cine y cuando venía alguna función buena procuraba no perdérmela. Ver a actores de cerca determinó que uno de mis sueños fuera imaginarme actuando delante de mucha gente en un escenario. Fue algo que no se me definió como vocación explícita hasta muchos años después, pero la verdad es que desde niño he tenido muy cerca el teatro y las artes. -¿Cuándo tuvo claro que quería seguir ese camino artístico? -A la hora de elegir la carrera universitaria me decanté por Filología Hispánica porque sabía que me iba a permitir tener mucho contacto con la literatura y con el teatro. Luego dentro del currículo te dejaban escoger asignaturas de otras carreras y elegí una rtoncal que estaba en Arte: Historia del Cine. En esos años comencé a desarrollar mis propios espectáculos de manera muy aficionada y amateur. -Por aquel entonces escribía poemas que luego representaba en el escenario... -Sí, eran poemas propios que yo mismo dramatizaba. Ahí empecé a desarrollar cierto sentido teatral, porque muchas veces cuando escribía ya lo hacía pensando en que el público lo iba a escuchar de mi propia voz. No era un yo lírico que se conformara con estar en el libro, era algo más. -Esos años formó parte del grupo literario leonés Aldabón de Bombay, junto a creadores como Roberto Aller, Rubén Mielgo, Valentín Villanueva o Alberto Flecha, entre otros. ¿Qué recuerda de su paso por allí? -Fue una etapa muy bonita. Son los inicios en los que nacen los sueños, los inicios de un gusto compartido por el arte, por el teatro, por la literatura, en los que vivimos una época preciosa de experimento, de jugar con el arte. Fueron las bases sobre las que al final se afianzó mi trayectoria. -Esos años recorría la provincia haciendo funciones por los pueblos. -Recuerdo una actuación entrañable que hicimos en Riello. Allí nos quedamos sin luz durante el espectáculo y fuimos a seguir con la representación al único sitio del pueblo donde había luz, una taberna. Cuando te llega una película como ‘Campeones’ o una función como ‘Cáscaras vacías’ está bien recordar esos orígenes humildes. -En 2015 Pepe Tabernero, el programador de actividades culturales de la Universidad de León a quien recordó en su discurso de los Goya, decide estrenar ‘Sala de espera’ en el Teatro El Albéitar. ¿Cómo lo vivió? -Pepe me brindó la oportunidad de estrenar con unas condiciones profesionales. A partir del estreno ese espectáculo tuvo una minigira por León, lo llevé a Madrid, a Matadero, en unas jornadas de arte y discapacidad, y empecé a formarme con el Centro Dramático Nacional, a través de Una Mirada Diferente, que es un festival inclusivo que tiene una parte escénica de exhibición y otra parte de investigación. Allí fui donde recibí la gran base y la mayor parte de mi formación teatral. -¿Cómo surgió la oportunidad de participar en el casting de ‘Campeones’? Me vieron en ‘Cáscaras vacías’ y contaron conmigo para el casting. Me dijeron que habida cuenta de mi trayectoria yo podía aportar mucho y fue muy bonito. Viví la experiencia con más expectación que nervios, y aunque fue un proceso muy largo, desde los primeros pasos vi que podía tener posibilidades. -¿Qué le ha sorprendido del cine? La diferencia entre el teatro y el cine a nivel técnico es grande, pero gracias al equipo de ‘coaching’ y al trabajo sensacional que hace Javier Fesser con los actores, el paso para mí fue muy fluido. También me sorprendió que esperaba que la cámara fuera fría y para nada noté frialdad, porque detrás de ella hay personas. Vas recogiendo ‘feedback’ del director cuando acaba la toma y tienes la posibilidad de repetir tomas y jugar con los registros: aquí le meto más ternura, aquí le voy a dar un punto algo más canalla… -¿Le ha cambiado la vida su participación en la película? -Me ha mejorado como actor y, ante todo, me ha mejorado mucho como persona. En el resto de mis compañeros del equipo de Los Amigos he descubierto a unas personas a las que la sociedad les ha puesto la horrorosa etiqueta de discapacitados intelectuales, cuando son personas, sin más. -¿Cuáles son, a su juicio, las principales discapacidades de la sociedad actual? -El miedo, la ignorancia, el no investigar en las cosas y no contrastarlas, dejarnos llevar por la apariencia y a partir de ahí etiquetar a las personas. Otra muy importante es etiquetar a las personas por las cosas que no pueden hacer, porque se habla de personas con discapacidad y no se habla de las capacidades que tienen esas personas, que tenemos las personas con discapacidad. -En un mundo estandarizado, donde las tiendas son las mismas en todas las ciudades y el modo de vestir o de pensar se tiende a homogenizar, ¿se castiga o se oculta lo diferente? -Por parte de cierto ‘establishment’ o ‘mainstream’ sí, pero también es verdad que la gente al final está buscando lo que le sorprende, lo que le extraña, y en parte por eso se explica el éxito de ‘Campeones’. La gente va por libre, tiene criterio y al final lo que en este caso era un producto pequeño se ha convertido en todo un fenómeno. -¿Cómo vivió el antes y el después de la ceremonia de los Goya? -Muy contento. El antes lo disfruté como una fiesta. Había sido invitado por la Academia a una gran fiesta y simplemente fui a estar con mis compañeros de profesión. Luego llegó el premio que fue el colofón, porque con él fui consciente de que iba a poder divulgar muchas cosas y dar todavía más visibilidad a lo que es la discapacidad y el valor que la discapacidad tiene en el arte. -Todos coinciden en que con su discurso emocionó a un país. -Es un gran elogio porque en ese discurso intenté dar visibilidad a mucha gente que normalmente no tiene voz. Lo intenté hacer desde el corazón y yo creo que llegó. -¿Qué sueños ha cumplido y qué sueños le quedan por cumplir? Los sueños que he cumplido son hacer teatro y cine, y como el actor empieza cada día desde cero me quedan muchos más por cumplir: consolidar mi carrera, hacer series, trabajar en más registros… -¿Qué podemos aprender como sociedad del mundo del deporte? El esfuerzo por mejorar día a día y que competir con uno mismo y mejorar no significa competir con los demás de manera agresiva. También podemos aprender que, en la vida, si se persiguen los sueños, se cumplen.

 Scorched Mars: As humanity continued to consume all of Earth’s resources, desperate governments and corporations united their pools of dwindling resources to begin a two -tiered project to colonize Mars. The first wave was a terraforming ship with robot caretakers programmed to transform Mars with an included biological cargo of bacteria, fungi, flora, and fauna to be cloned as each stage of the atmospheric change was completed.

The second wave was a colonization ship that planned to arrive to a human hospitable Mars twenty years after the first ship arrived.

What the colonization ship found was not the expected changes, but a still rust red world with little atmosphere. The ship sent probes to the planet’s surface. The probes found the terraforming ship’s landing site. The ship’s alloys had been incorporated into a machine factory city churning out robots, weapons, and ships. The Terran DNA canisters had been smashed open and their contents had been incinerated. The robotic caretakers had malfunctioned in some way and had turned on the human race. The colonization ship managed to get a transmission to Earth of their discoveries just before their probes were smashed and they were attacked by a swarm of machine ships launched from the surface of Mars.

The Earth made a third fleet, a death fleet. The orbital bomber, The Irradiator, was loaded with enough nukes to scour the machine city off the face of Mars with an accompanying starship carrier for fighter cover. The EMP blasts should shut down the machines that the nukes did not melt outright.

But when the death fleet arrived at Mars they found it well defended by orbital defense platforms and machine swarm ship carriers. The machines had more resources and could build faster than the humans. Soon they would be able to invade the Earth based on their current fleet size and projected production. Can the group nuke Mars and stop a terraforming attempt gone horrifically wrong?

Senior leadership role as well. I'm at the office at 7am and head home about 4pm. I usually work about an hour each night at home and a few hours on weekends. I do work from home on Wednesdays - I actually have a lot of autonomy to work remotely - so I can spend some time with my 3yr old son. I also travel pretty frequently, about 45-50 days total a year. My wife also has a full-time career, works 7am-3pm each day but virtually never works at home. She does travel a little, 15-20 days a year. Magically, only once have we had to travel at the same time, and my in-laws happened to be living with us at the time so we had an easy solution. Wife is also a full-time student (and has yet to get a "B" with 3 semester left to finish her degree). Two kids, 6 and 3; older daughter is in gymnastics and son is wrestling. Yep, we're insanely busy by most standards, but it is just life for us and we don't regularly feel overwhelmed (though it does happen). We outsource absolutely nothing. We have a system for everything; we've got cooking, laundry, grocery shopping, etc. down to a science. Honestly, I'm a control freak and have exacting standards, I would have a really difficult time trusting someone else to clean my house, cook, do my yard work or laundry even if it was at no cost.


Very impressive! You both would really need to be super organized and on the same page for this to work.

review:
Tomie dePaola's version of this classic tale differs substantially from the one written by Barbara Cooney. One big change, among many, is that the action is all set in Italy, whereas Barbara Cooney's story (and virtually all others, if my understanding is correct) takes place in France.

Tomie dePaola brings excellent sensitivity to this heartwarming and heartbreaking fable about a virile young Juggler named Giovanni who ascends to be the unquestionably finest artisan in his chosen skill, and remains in that prime position for many years. As time inevitably catches up to him, Giovanni's marvelous skills of physical wizardry begin to fade like the luster of a beautiful flower, until the large crowds that had eagerly flocked to see his performances gradually disperse, and one day he bungles even the fantastic seven-ball finale that had been his renown when he was at his peak. Giovanni, an old man now, must resign himself to live in ruined poverty, until the day that he finds a beautiful church filled with people giving their all to the statue of the virgin Mary and the sober-looking boychild statue on her lap. For a brief, magical moment, Giovanni is able to recapture the lost verve of his youth to muster a final performance for the ages that has moved readers for hundreds of years.

This is a very well told story. I would give it at least two stars, perhaps two and a half.

review:
Well, illustrator Claire Ewart certainly had her work cut out for her in this book. Readers from all over the globe have had a relationship with Tomie dePaola for decades, getting to know him through his works in a way that almost never happens with any author, because he is so open with his personal family history. Tomie dePaola's stories and painting style blend so comfortably together that in the eyes of many (including myself) the two are virtually married, and it's hard to imagine anyone else being able to step in and successfully take over half the controls. In becoming the first autonomous illustrator to do the work in a Tomie dePaola book, Claire Ewart was definitely under real pressure.

In my view, she came through beautifully. Some of the pictures had such glowing and unexpected tones and ideas that I came away from reading The Legend of the Persian Carpet impressed most of all by its tremendous, vivid sense of art. The story itself is an interesting one, and further continues Tomie dePaola's work in exploring folklore from distant cultures, and bringing it home in picture book form for young readers. I would grant one and a half stars to The Legend of the Persian Carpet.

(2019-02-09)
The Alpina V8 Roadster was the final iteration of the small-scale Z8 sports car inspired by the 507 of the late 1950s. This model was more grand touring-oriented than its sports car predecessor, coming with a 5-speed BMW Steptronic automatic transmission and a softer suspension, and the interior was redone as well, using softer Nappa leather. While the engine power was reduced to 375 hp, torque rose to 383 lb-ft, being available at a much lower RPM for a more relaxed ride.

With most units bound for the United States (444 units and Alpina's first car officially sold there) and Japan (between 70 and 90 units), this car is extremely rare outside these markets.

          Lady Vulgaraza, la trans-gresora de las redes sociales - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page      

Nació hombre en una familia religiosa. De hecho, la iglesia está frente a su casa materna. En la adolescencia descubrió que quería convertirse en mujer.

Por eso, a los 15 años decidió iniciar un proceso de “transformación” y abandonó el hogar por “respeto a mi madre”.

Hasta entonces llevaba pantalones y camisas, que sustituyó por shorts cortos y camisolas, el cabello largo y amarrado en una coleta y un nombre nuevo: Karelis de la Vega. Y a ese nombre le acompaña también una nueva vida: la prostitución.

Lady la Vulgaraza. Bismarck Picado/END

Fuera de su casa, durmiendo en la vivienda de amigos y a veces en la calle, Javier Antonio Hernández Urrutia, como se llama legalmente, confiesa que le ha tocado ver la pobreza desde adentro. Ahora tiene ante sí un nuevo panorama: el de jóvenes y adolescentes que venden su cuerpo por unos cuantos pesos porque necesitan vivir, pero terminan encontrando la muerte.

“Yo tuve que ver eso. Muchas chicas trans que eran asesinadas para después ser olvidadas”, relata con un deje de pesar en la voz. “Son crímenes que hasta ahora siguen impunes”.

A veces volvía a casa, “quizá dos veces a la semana”, solo a dormir, pero desaparecía al amanecer. Esa vida de ir y venir, de “humillaciones” y ocasionales vigilias en sitios que ni siquiera conocía, de enterarse de la muerte de compañeras y sentirse impotente, acabó.

En 2017, dos años después de su “transformación”, Karelis de la Vega regresó a casa, donde lo recibió su madre, pero debe enfrentar el entorno del barrio, otra vez.

“Lady” por error

Se dedicaba a vender calzones, a hacer rifas y ayudaba a su mamá con turrones y cajetas. La prostitución había quedado atrás, así como el miedo de ser la siguiente víctima por la cual nadie exigiría justicia.

En ese tiempo, una amiga grabó un video desde su teléfono.

“No debía publicarse”, dice ahora Karelis, a quien no le resulta tan cómico el episodio, pero igual las imágenes aparecen en Facebook.

La gente se divierte con el lenguaje y lo casual que resulta, lo comparte y lo convierte en uno de esos fenómenos virales de la red.

En el video sale colgada de una rama y habla desenfrenada con un “hijos de la setenta…” cada dos oraciones.

Así nació Lady La Vulgaraza, pero la cuenta es robada, por lo que crea un nuevo perfil en Facebook, que actualmente cuenta con 203,979 seguidores.

Sin embargo, las “vulgaridades” están acompañadas de aspectos de la vida diaria dichas con el lenguaje del barrio, incluso asuntos políticos. En medio de la acogida del público virtual y a raíz de la crisis que se desata en abril en Nicaragua, la Lady sufre una vez más una transformación.

No se puede guardar silencio

“Soy una persona muy humilde, que más allá de vivir una fantasía vivo una realidad y he visto la pobreza muy cerca”, cuenta Karelis.

Su voz se quiebra cuando lo dice. Vio morir a sus compañeras trans en la calle sin que nadie dijese nada y en el contexto de la crisis reconoce la muerte de jóvenes con “futuros prometedores” a manos de policías y parapolicías.

Es testigo de la represión en contra de los ciudadanos.

Lady la Vulgaraza. Bismarck Picado/END

Así que se pone a favor de los autodenominados “azul y blanco”, a pesar de que era militante del Frente Sandinista de Liberación Nacional.

Seguida y apoyada

Se peina en una coleta, se aplica sombras y lápiz de labios, se delinea los ojos y se posiciona frente a un teléfono celular. Una de sus sobrinas o alguna amiga trans del barrio la graba.

Ahora usa su influencia para denunciar las violaciones a los derechos humanos y dar su opinión sobre el gobierno, siempre acompañado su mensaje de las retahílas de palabras obscenas que la caracterizan.

 Daniela Vega, el símbolo transgénero que conquista Hollywood

La gente la escucha, la ve, está de acuerdo con lo que dice y comparte su opinión. Su reciente despertar le valdría, sin embargo, una citación policial que, en sus propias palabras, solo fue “un intento de callarla”.

“La gente la sigue (a Lady) porque estamos viviendo en un contexto social en que las redes sociales y las plataformas ayudan a viralizar y reproducir una cantidad inmensa de productos autogestionados”, explica la socióloga Fernanda Zeledón.

Lady la Vulgaraza. Bismarck Picado/END

“En el caso de Lady la Vulgaraza tiene características muy llamativas, es una mujer transexual que a través de un humor muy negro hace un cuestionamiento al sistema social y político del país”, agrega.

Zeledón explica que es positivo “esa teatralización de una mujer que está luchando por sus derechos bajo ese sentido de humor, no solo es una denuncia de reivindicación, sino que representa a la mujer transgénero pobre… y el aspecto popular resulta gracioso e interesante”.

Para el comunicador Gonzalo Norori, también influye el hecho de que “es un personaje que representa el antisistema, la lucha contra el poder”.

“Ella es el resultado de un sistema de discriminación” explica, que no se queda callada, sino que “habla sin pelos en la lengua, aunque la sociedad no termine de tomarla como un factor reconocible”, ese es el papel que ha escogido y “sin victimizarse” lo ha asumido.

 Hollywood titubea en la inclusión de las personas transgénero

A esto se agrega “lo obsceno, que se contrapone a lo moral, no deja de llamar la atención”.

Con palabras fuertes y todo, “no son cinco o diez personas las que la siguen o reaccionan al contenido que produce, son muchas”.

Lady la Vulgaraza. Bismarck Picado/END

En una sociedad tan tradicionalista como Nicaragua, Lady la Vulgaraza representa una ruptura en el orden establecido, “no solo de la sexualidad, sino de la identidad de género”, detalla la socióloga Zeledón.

“Su performance es muy aterrizado, lleva las costumbres de los barrios con las denuncias tan directas que hace y aquellos que no están necesariamente formados logran conectar con el personaje”, detalla.

“Creo que (las decisiones respecto a las preferencias sexuales) eventualmente se van a normalizar gracias a personajes como ella, no podemos vivir como en la sociedad (de edad) media”, finalizó Zeledón, “aprendés y lo podés disfrutar y entretenerte mientras tanto”.

Quiere ser periodista

Lady La Vulgaraza, por su parte, espera que así sea. Dejó la secundaria porque “las oportunidades para una mujer trans son limitadas” y tuvo que repetir primer año de secundaria.

Este año, confiesa que quiere ser periodista y está totalmente en contra de la represión a los medios de comunicación, espera que pueda solucionarse la situación.

“Soy muy creyente” y “quiero decirles que la fe nos va a ayudar”, dice. A las familias que lloran a los seres queridos, a los que deben trabajar aunque no les guste lo que hacen, los que se fueron o están huyendo, a los periodistas censurados y a la gente consciente de que no existe ningún tipo de normalidad les dice: “Esto tiene salvación”.


          Universitarios que protestaron: En el exilio, sin estudios y con problemas económicos - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page      

El Foro de Educación señala que la matrícula de 2019 en las universidades públicas no llega ni al 60% del total de otros años. Uno de los principales motivos que identifican en la deserción universitaria es el “temor de ser capturados o denunciados por haber participado en las protestas”.

Por su parte, el Consejo Superior de Universidades Privadas (Cosup) estima que de 20,000 estudiantes que estaban matriculados al inicio del año lectivo 2018, un total de 10,000 abandonaron los estudios.

La Fundación para el Desarrollo Económico y Social (Funides), en su Informe de Coyuntura 2018, indica que 60,000 nicaragüenses han migrado en los últimos nueve meses, la mayoría jóvenes.

Además, la Expresión Organizada de Universitarios, estima que un 85% de los estudiantes de educación superior que se exiliaron no han podido retomar su educación.

Alexander Reyes, parte del equipo de la Expresión Organizada de Universitarios, explicó que llevan un seguimiento de los estudiantes que se han exiliado y los que se permitieron retomar sus estudios en universidades públicas, lo cual les ha permitido identificar que muchos jóvenes se han quedado sin derecho a la educación.

Él mismo era estudiante de sociología, como segunda carrera, en una de las universidades subvencionadas del país, sin embargo abandonó su tercer año de clases en solidaridad con las víctimas de la crisis sociopolítica.

El joven ya es licenciado en psicología y afirma que su profesión le permitió colaborar en algunos momentos de las protestas con estudiantes que presentaban crisis por las difíciles situaciones emocionales que atravesaban.

La Expresión Organizada de Universitarios aglutina a estudiantes de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Nicaragua (UNAN-Managua), UNAN-León, Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería (UNI), Universidad Politécnica de Nicaragua (Upoli) y Universidad Centroamericana (UCA).

ACOSO INTERNO

La relación que la Expresión Organizada de Universitarios mantiene con los universitarios le ha permitido a Reyes conocer los problemas que enfrentan los estudiantes, que se animaron a retomar sus clases en universidades públicas y subvencionadas.

Los estudiantes dijeron que en algunas universidades estatales son requisados al ingresar.

Ahora, “los chavalos nos dicen que les revisan sus mochilas, que los hacen pasar por un detector de metales, cosas a las que no eran sometidos antes de la crisis. Ahora todo está controlado. A los estudiantes no se les permite la reunión de más de tres, nos han informado que cuando están reunidos más de dos estudiantes, comienzan a llegar dirigentes de Unión Nacional Estudiantes de Nicaragua (UNEN), para incomodar y que se acabe la conversación”, pormenorizó Reyes.

Según información oficial de la UNAN-Managua, compartida a finales de enero por la rectora de esa alma mater, Ramona Rodríguez, en una comparecencia en Radio La Primerísima, unos 9,000 estudiantes optaron por no retornar a las aulas.

“Para el año 2018, la UNAN-Managua tenía en sus aulas a 39 mil estudiantes, y al cerrar el segundo semestre reporta 9 mil estudiantes que no asisten a la universidad”, señaló Ramírez.

El experto en educación y director del Foro de Educación y Desarrollo Humano, Jorge Mendoza, explicó que los universitarios, actualmente, no tienen en las universidades un ambiente que propicie un buen clima para educarse y eso se ha reflejado en la deserción.

Por su parte, Alex Bonilla, también especialista en temas educativos, sostiene que “los controles excesivos que hay en los recintos, la presencia policial y el discurso político que los maestros y maestras manejan hace que los estudiantes se retiren de la universidad”.

Mendoza señaló que en las universidades públicas se ha “perdido la esencia de la academia”, lo cual consiste en la construcción del pensamiento a través de la diversidad de ideas.

“La academia no se hace con camisas del mismo tipo, la universidad se hizo para que la academia trascendiera a través del debate diverso”, mantuvo.

En la Upoli, cuyo campus también sirvió de albergue a manifestantes antigubernamentales por varios meses, también se hace evidente la deserción estudiantil.

“Las últimas estadísticas indican que aproximadamente 50% se ha reintegrado en los cursos sabatinos, dominical y en los cursos regulares”, informó Douglas Alemán, titular de la Dirección de Relaciones Públicas de esta casa de estudios.

De acuerdo con Alemán, solo en Managua la población estudiantil de la Upoli ronda actualmente los 7,000 estudiantes.

En la Universidad Nacional Agraria (UNA), a finales del año pasado autoridades de esa entidad señalaron a El Nuevo Diario que la cantidad de estudiantes que se reintegraron a clases superaba el 52%, es decir, de 4,600 estudiantes inscritos, alrededor de 2,400 habían regresado.

El Foro de Educación ha identificado que la principal causa de la deserción estudiantil es el exilio por razones políticas y, en otras ocasiones, porque simplemente no tienen las posibilidades económicas para continuar.

“Nosotros tenemos contacto con la organización costarricense que se llama Agenda Ciudadana por la Educación y tiene una gran cantidad de nicaragüenses solicitando oportunidades para estudiar. Es decir que, entre el 12% y 15% de las personas que se fueron son estudiantes. Solo en la UCA, el 54% de los estudiantes de la carrera de sociología están en el exilio, jóvenes que tuvieron que salir por temor a ser procesados o que no pudieron ingresar a las aulas por razones económicas”, afirmó Mendoza.

RESIENTEN CALIDAD

El director del Foro resaltó que en la calidad en la educación superior “hay serias afectaciones”, no solo por los despidos de docentes con experiencia y una vasta formación, “sino porque las modalidades que se están impartiendo son deficientes, los estudiantes en vez de asistir todos los días lo hacen solo dos veces a la semana”, apuntó Mendoza.

La Expresión Organizada de Universitarios también respaldó el planteamiento del Foro, pues refieren que los universitarios han extendido su descontento con la formación educativa que han empezado a recibir este 2019.

Actualmente, los estudiantes de turnos nocturnos fueron movidos a sabatino y vespertino, además en carreras donde se debate coyuntura nacional se les priva de hablar de la crisis sociopolítica.

“Los chavalos también se sienten afectados por la imposición de docentes que son claramente ligados con el Gobierno y que no están capacitados para ejercer la docencia. En la carrera Ciencias Políticas a los estudiantes se les orienta debatir sobre cualquier tema, menos de la coyuntura política a nivel nacional. Les han dicho claramente que hablen de todo menos de ideologías políticas”, reveló Alexander Reyes.

REFUGIADOS CON POCO ACCESO A ESTUDIOS

Mientras tanto, fuera de Nicaragua los jóvenes estudiantes que se vieron obligados a huir de la represión gubernamental, tras haber participado en las protestas sociales, también son privados de su derecho a una educación de calidad.

La Expresión Organizada de Universitarios señala que solo el 15% de los estudiantes que se han ido del país han conseguido entrar a una universidad.

Los problemas que enfrentan los universitarios son la falta de documentos que demuestren los niveles superiores que cursaban, otros fueron apresados antes de ingresar a países latinoamericanos y muchos priorizan trabajar para mantenerse.

El desplazamiento forzado de los universitarios, para el experto en educación, representa una “fuga de cerebros”, además advirtió que “esto pone en peligro el futuro de Nicaragua, porque los jóvenes que deberían de estar estudiando, para potenciar el desarrollo del país, están buscando maneras de sobrevivencia”.

Sin embargo, no todo es negro para los universitarios en el exilio, algunos, como ocho estudiantes que consiguieron una beca en Noruega, están consiguiendo su sueño de terminar sus carreras.

Mendoza señaló que quienes no están estudiando se han convertido en “activistas virtuales, constantes buscadores de oportunidades para estudiar. Nosotros logramos colocar a ocho estudiantes en universidades de Noruega, quienes fueron expulsados por su participación en las protestas sociales, aplicaron 20 y quedaron 8 nicaragüenses, fue un gran logro”.

Reyes explicó que la esperanza que permanece en los estudiantes es poder volver a su país, continuar sus estudios y aportar al desarrollo de Nicaragua, sin embargo, indica que los miembros de la Expresión Organizada de Universitarios en el exilio aseguran que no volverán hasta que los nicaragüenses tengan garantías de libertad y respeto a sus derechos.

          Weekend Reading: Containers      Cache   Translate Page      
containers

The software enabling this technology comes in many forms, with Docker as the most popular. The recent rise in popularity of container technology within the data center is a direct result of its portability and ability to isolate working environments, thus limiting its impact and overall footprint to the underlying computing system. To understand the technology completely, you first need to understand the many pieces that make it all possible. Join us this weekend as we learn about Containers.

Before we get started, many ask what the difference is between a container and virtual machines? Editor Petros Koutoupis explains: Both have a specific purpose and place with very little overlap, and one doesn't obsolete the other. A container is meant to be a lightweight environment that you spin up to host one to a few isolated applications at bare-metal performance. You should opt for virtual machines when you want to host an entire operating system or ecosystem or maybe to run applications incompatible with the underlying environment.

Everything You Need to Know about Linux Containers, Part I: Linux Control Groups and Process Isolation

Truth be told, certain software applications in the wild may need to be controlled or limited—at least for the sake of stability and, to some degree, security. Far too often, a bug or just bad code can disrupt an entire machine and potentially cripple an entire ecosystem. Fortunately, a way exists to keep those same applications in check. Control groups (cgroups) is a kernel feature that limits, accounts for and isolates the CPU, memory, disk I/O and network's usage of one or more processes.

Everything You Need to Know about Linux Containers, Part II: Working with Linux Containers (LXC)

Part I of this Deep Dive on containers introduces the idea of kernel control groups, or cgroups, and the way you can isolate, limit and monitor selected userspace applications. Here, I dive a bit deeper and focus on the next step of process isolation—that is, through containers, and more specifically, the Linux Containers (LXC) framework.

Orbital Bomber

DramaScape SciFi Volume 56

This product is a 48 x 30 inch full-color, map of a SciFi Orbital Bomber , with Hex, Square and No Overlays. The Zip file contains the VTT (Virtual Table Top Images for online play).

“Fire the railguns at their orbital defense platforms! Ignore enemy swarm ships and leave them to our own flyboys. We must punch a hole through their defense line! Once we break through we can drop our planet killing payload right on that city. ”—Captain of The Irradiator

Orbital Bomber is a single level interior map of an orbital bomber. The orbital bomber includes two railguns that can fire in ninety degree arcs that can only fire forward or to the side that flank the bridge at the front of the ship in addition to a large payload of bombs or alternatively rockets or torpedoes fired from launch tubes in the ship’s walls. This alternative loadout turns it into more of a space battleship instead.

 Orbital Bomber is intended for use in far-future science fiction games.

 Adventure hook for use with this map:

 Scorched Mars: As humanity continued to consume all of Earth’s resources, desperate governments and corporations united their pools of dwindling resources to begin a two -tiered project to colonize Mars. The first wave was a terraforming ship with robot caretakers programmed to transform Mars with an included biological cargo of bacteria, fungi, flora, and fauna to be cloned as each stage of the atmospheric change was completed.

The second wave was a colonization ship that planned to arrive to a human hospitable Mars twenty years after the first ship arrived.

What the colonization ship found was not the expected changes, but a still rust red world with little atmosphere. The ship sent probes to the planet’s surface. The probes found the terraforming ship’s landing site. The ship’s alloys had been incorporated into a machine factory city churning out robots, weapons, and ships. The Terran DNA canisters had been smashed open and their contents had been incinerated. The robotic caretakers had malfunctioned in some way and had turned on the human race. The colonization ship managed to get a transmission to Earth of their discoveries just before their probes were smashed and they were attacked by a swarm of machine ships launched from the surface of Mars.

The Earth made a third fleet, a death fleet. The orbital bomber, The Irradiator, was loaded with enough nukes to scour the machine city off the face of Mars with an accompanying starship carrier for fighter cover. The EMP blasts should shut down the machines that the nukes did not melt outright.

But when the death fleet arrived at Mars they found it well defended by orbital defense platforms and machine swarm ship carriers. The machines had more resources and could build faster than the humans. Soon they would be able to invade the Earth based on their current fleet size and projected production. Can the group nuke Mars and stop a terraforming attempt gone horrifically wrong?

          Need help identifying bread aroma additives used in commercial bakeries (UK)      Cache   Translate Page      

Need help identifying bread aroma additives used in commercial bakeries (UK)

Hello all. I hope you can help me identify a smell.

My local supermarkets and bakeries (in the UK) all bake their own bread and rolls in-store. Part of the baking process involves the addition of what they call an "emulsifier" mixture - an off-white/beige grainy powder.

However, this mixture contains more than just emulsifiers. It's also responsible for a strong and unmistakeably "bready" aroma which then permeates through the entire supermarket and, of course, affects the aroma and taste of the finished product.

I am trying to find out exactly what ingredient(s) contribute to this very recognisable aroma.

I have asked the in-store bakers however they (understandably) don't know. All they know is the aroma comes from this "emulsifier mix". I was allowed to smell a sample of the powder and it is indeed the source of the "fresh bread" smell.

It does not smell like yeast, alcohol, sourdough, or hops. I would describe it the stereotypical smell of a completed loaf of bread, only stronger. The kind of smell you get when you rip open a soft morning roll (indeed, morning rolls are a prime example of a product which makes heavy use of this aroma). The same smell is not replicable by methods such as long fermenting or the addition of cereals into a dough; this aroma is definitely "chemically enhanced".

I appreciate whatever mixture is being used is probably a proprietary blend of aromatic compounds, however I am wondering if anyone out there has ever encountered such a mixture before, and could point me towards a supplier and/or a source for something similar?

It's such a common aroma throughout virtually all commercial bakeries in the UK that somebody must have encountered it before.

Thanks.

Εσείς ποιο θα παίξετε;

Έχοντας μπει ήδη πολύ δυναμικά στο 2019, με Kingdom Hearts 3 και Resident Evil 2 Remake, η νοσταλγία χτύπησε κόκκινο. Ο Φεβρουάριος έρχεται εξίσου δυναμικά στον αγώνα, με νέες κυκλοφορίες, αλλά και συνέχειες γνωστών και αγαπημένων τίτλων. Το μόνο σίγουρο είναι ότι με του Αγίου Βαλεντίνου να πλησιάζει, το πορτοφόλι μας θα υποφέρει.

Πάμε να δούμε τι κυκλοφορίες περιμένουμε!

Jump Force - 15 Φεβρουαρίου 2019

Εταιρεία ανάπτυξης: Spike Chunsoft
Εταιρεία κυκλοφορίας: Bandai Namco
Platforms: PC, PS4, XB1


Τα Shonen Jump δεν έχουν συνήθως μεγάλο κοινό, αλλά με τίτλους όπως το Dragon Ball FighterZ και όλους τους anime fans εκεί έξω, που αυξάνονται συνεχώς, το Jump Force φαίνεται πολλά υποσχόμενο. Το ρόστερ του είναι από τα πιο δυνατά του σημεία και σίγουρα θα είναι αυτό που θα μας κάνει να κολλήσουμε. Ετοιμαστείτε να μπείτε στη μάχη στις 15 Φεβρουαρίου.


Crackdown 3 - 15 Φεβρουαρίου 2019

Εταιρεία ανάπτυξης: Sumo Digital
Εταιρεία κυκλοφορίας: Microsoft Studios
Platforms: PC, XB1


Τo Crackdown 3 βρίσκεται τόσο καιρό υπό ανάπτυξη, που θα μείνουμε έκπληκτοι όταν το δούμε να κυκλοφορεί. Πρόκειται για μια αποκλειστικότητα της Microsoft, που θα φέρει την καταστροφή, σε μεγαλύτερη κλίμακα. Και έχει και υποστηρικτή τον Terry Crews. Τι άλλο θέλετε;


Far Cry New Dawn - 15 Φεβρουαρίου 2019

Εταιρεία ανάπτυξης: Ubisoft
Εταιρεία κυκλοφορίας: Ubisoft
Platforms: PC, PS4, XB1


Έχοντας ανακοινωθεί πριν από λίγες μέρες, το Far Cry: New Dawn θα ανταγωνιστεί όλα τα post-apocalyptic shooters του 2019. Έχοντας πολλές ομοιότητες με το Rage 2 και δίνοντας έμφαση στο online στοιχείο, το νέο παιχνίδι της Ubisoft πρόκειται να διχάσει το κοινό και όχι μόνο, για το περίεργο εξώφυλλό του.


Metro: Exodus - 15 Φεβρουαρίου 2019

Εταιρεία ανάπτυξης: 4A Games
Εταιρεία κυκλοφορίας: Deep Silver
Platforms: PC, PS4, XB1


Είναι αυτή η χρονιά που το Metro θα καταφέρει να ξεφύγει από την cult προσωπικότητά του; Το Exodus, το οποίο είναι πλέον gold, πρόκειται να σπάσει αυτή την πεποίθηση, με χειροποίητα όπλα και πολλά αηδιαστικά πλάσματα για να σκοτώσετε. Θα είναι μια δύσκολη ημερομηνία, αλλά αναμένουμε να δούμε πώς θα πάει.


Anthem - 22 Φεβρουαρίου 2018

Εταιρεία ανάπτυξης: BioWare
Εταιρεία κυκλοφορίας: EA
Platforms: PC, PS4, XB1


Το Anthem είναι επίσης ένας μεγάλος και μυστηριώδης τίτλος και το μεγαλύτερο πόνημα της Bioware για το 2019. Λεφτά υπάρχουν, και η εταιρεία το χει δείξει μέσω της στρατηγικής που έχει ακολουθήσει στο marketing του παιχνιδιού. Θα πρέπει βέβαια να δούμε λίγο παραπάνω gameplay πριν το κρίνουμε, αλλά απ' όσα έχουν αποκαλυφθεί, φαίνεται ότι θα το απολαύσουμε!


Trials Rising - 26 Φεβρουαρίου 2019

Εταιρεία ανάπτυξης: RedLynx
Εταιρεία κυκλοφορίας: Ubisoft
Platforms: PC, PS4, XB1, Switch

Το Trials Rising θα περάσει έναν πολύ δύσκολο μήνα, καθώς ο Φεβρουάριος είναι γεμάτος και το παιχνίδι δεν έχει δείξει πολύ δυνατά σημάδια. Η RedLynx ακούει το feedback των fans και κάνεις τις ανάλογες διορθώσεις, αλλά για να μπορεί να επεκταθεί και στον υπόλοιπο κόσμο, θα χρειαστεί κόπο και ιδρώτα. Θα καταφέρει με κάποιο τρόπο να ξεχωρίσει, έστω και λίγο, από τους προαναφερθέντες τιτάνες;


Φυσικά υπάρχουν και άλλα παιχνίδια που αξίζει να δοκιμάσετε αυτόν τον μήνα και είναι τα ακόλουθα:

  • Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown - 1 Φεβρουαρίου (PC)
  • Apex Legends - 4 Φεβρουαρίου (PC, PS4, XONE)
  • God Eater 3 - 8 Φεβρουαρίου (PS4, XONE)
  • Dirt Rally 2.0 - 26 Φεβρουαρίου (PC, PS4, XONE)

          Inside Trump's daily routine, which includes 3 to 4 hours of sleep, 'executive time,' and no breakfast      Cache   Translate Page      

trump oval office

  • Leaked copies of President Donald Trump's daily schedules show he has spent nearly 60% of his working days in the last three months in blocks of "executive time." 
  • Scheduled alongside other events like briefings with top aides, meetings with world leaders, and running into the press, the unstructured blocks usually take up around 3-5 hours of the president's day. 
  • Here's what else is known about the president's schedule. 

Copies of President Donald Trump's daily schedules that were recently leaked to Axios show he has spent nearly 60% of his working days in the last three months in blocks of "executive time." 

These unstructured blocks are scheduled at the president's discretion and aren't listed with specific activities, unlike meeting with administration members, hosting world leaders, so there has been immense speculation about their value. 

Take a look at the daily schedule that also includes Fox News, tweeting time, and built-in breaks from his presidential duties.

DON'T MISS: 21 scandals that rocked the Trump administration in 2018

Trump reportedly wakes up at 5:30 a.m. and sometimes begins making calls around 6 a.m.

According to CNN, Trump doesn't drink coffee to wake up.

Source: Business Insider



Trump reportedly sleeps only three to four hours a night, which he described as a success tactic. "How does somebody that's sleeping 12 and 14 hours a day compete with someone that's sleeping three or four?" he asked.

It's not clear whether or not Trump is part of the 1% of the population that appears to actually need less sleep, scientifically speaking. If he is not, Trump is severely sleep deprived, according to health professionals that generally recommend seven to eight hours of sleep.

Source: The Daily News



Breakfast isn't often a part of the president's routine, but when he does eat, he said his "favorite would be bacon and eggs — bacon medium and the eggs over-well."

Trump told Jesse Watters in 2016, "I will have a lunch, but my big thing is dinner."

From Upwork // Hi.

I am a man that works alot. I have a family, a business and I'm also starting a new business which is why I need your help.

Your job will be to research and find good investments for me so that I can purchase houses (real estate).

I will provide all training (very easy to do) and the resources to do your research. Your job is as simple as:
1. Using the internet to find homes that are for sale.
2. Use a formula that i give you to find out if this home is a good investment.
3. Send me the good investments that you find.

I want someone who learns this process and becomes very good at it. I will provide a $100 bonus every time I am able to purchase an investment property that you find. On top of your hourly rate you have the potential to earn unlimited $100.

Because of my network, I am able to purchase properties an unlimited amount of times. Theirfore the quicker you find "us" good deals the quicker "we" get PAID!.

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

          Weekend Reading: Containers      Cache   Translate Page      
containers

The software enabling this technology comes in many forms, with Docker as the most popular. The recent rise in popularity of container technology within the data center is a direct result of its portability and ability to isolate working environments, thus limiting its impact and overall footprint to the underlying computing system. To understand the technology completely, you first need to understand the many pieces that make it all possible. Join us this weekend as we learn about Containers.

Before we get started, many ask what the difference is between a container and virtual machines? Editor Petros Koutoupis explains: Both have a specific purpose and place with very little overlap, and one doesn't obsolete the other. A container is meant to be a lightweight environment that you spin up to host one to a few isolated applications at bare-metal performance. You should opt for virtual machines when you want to host an entire operating system or ecosystem or maybe to run applications incompatible with the underlying environment.

Everything You Need to Know about Linux Containers, Part I: Linux Control Groups and Process Isolation

Truth be told, certain software applications in the wild may need to be controlled or limited—at least for the sake of stability and, to some degree, security. Far too often, a bug or just bad code can disrupt an entire machine and potentially cripple an entire ecosystem. Fortunately, a way exists to keep those same applications in check. Control groups (cgroups) is a kernel feature that limits, accounts for and isolates the CPU, memory, disk I/O and network's usage of one or more processes.

Everything You Need to Know about Linux Containers, Part II: Working with Linux Containers (LXC)

Part I of this Deep Dive on containers introduces the idea of kernel control groups, or cgroups, and the way you can isolate, limit and monitor selected userspace applications. Here, I dive a bit deeper and focus on the next step of process isolation—that is, through containers, and more specifically, the Linux Containers (LXC) framework.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Save civilization.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

Well then these guys should be First Against The Wall.

== Finally... the China Dilemma ==

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dưới đây là bài viết của tôi ghi lại một số sự kiện của chuyến đi, đời thường cũng như khoa học. Tôi có thêm đôi chút ý kiến riêng trong phần khoa học như một sự bổ sung, cũng như những cảm nghĩ và mơ ước thô thiển cá nhân. Trong mạch này, tôi kể lại chuyến thăm có nhiều hệ quả của Einstein ở Buenos Aires, thủ đô của Argentina, năm 1925, cũng như hai nước khác của Nam Mỹ. Hôm nay chúng ta có một chuyến đi rất vui, một buổi nói chuyện khoa học thật thú vị. Hãy mơ, và nuôi dưỡng, chấp cánh cho giấc mơ để một ngày nào có một sự đổi thay tốt đẹp cho Việt Nam. NXX

Như đã được báo trước trong Thông cáo báo chí, Giáo sư Gerard ‘t Hooft có hai ngày thăm thành phố Đà Lạt. Ông đến chiều tối ngày 5/5, tham quan ngày 6/5, nói chuyện tại ĐH Đà Lạt ngày 7/5 và rời Đà Lạt chiều hôm đó đi Nha Trang và Quy Nhơn.
Chuyến đi thăm Đà Lạt của GS ‘t Hooft là một sự kiện rất ư thú vị cho thành phố. Từ 125 năm qua khi thành phố được khám phá bởi Bác sĩ Yersin, Đà Lạt là thành phố của quan quyền Pháp Việt, nơi nghĩ dưỡng của họ, thành phố của giới trung lưu sang trọng, của nhà thờ, tu viện, trường học, các villa đẹp, và của hoa. Vào thời Việt Nam mở cửa kinh tế, có một người khách lạ đầu tiên đến vùng đất này, đã đem lòng yêu nó, và đầu tư mà cơ sở ngày nay được biết đến là Cty hoa Đà Lạt Hasfarm. Ông là người Hà Lan. Và hôm nay thành phố được tiếp một vị khách đặc biệt, nhà vật lý giải Nobel rất tên tuổi Gerard ‘t Hooft, cũng từ Hà Lan. Ông không phải nhà đầu tư như thường lệ, mà mang đến cho Đà Lạt tri thức, và muốn đánh thức các tài năng.
Cái ‘duyên’ GS ‘t Hooft đến Đà Lạt có được là do ‘ông tơ bà nguyệt’ Trần Thanh Vân và Lê Kim Ngọc ‘se’. GS ‘t Hooft quyết định thăm “thành phố cao nguyên”, từng được ví là một “Paris nhỏ”, nằm cao 1.500 mét trên mặt biển. Ông có thể xem trên mạng, nhưng có lẽ chưa hình dung về thành phố thanh lịch và đáng yêu này.
Hôm đi máy bay từ Sài gòn lên phi trường Liên Khương, do bị trễ, ông bà không thấy gì không gian ngoài bầu trời tối. Ông bà được đội tiếp tân của Edensee resort tiến đón với hai vòng hoa choàng cổ, và hai hàng người hoan nghênh chào đón. Sau đó họ được đưa lên xe limousine về resort. Trời tối nên chỉ thấy qua ánh đèn xe những khoảnh nhỏ rừng thông hai bên đường trong sự tĩnh mịch. Tại Edensee resort, ông bà được hai vợ chồng doanh nhân Việt kiều Đức, anh Tiêu Như Phương và chị Bạch Mai, chào đón trọng thể với tất cả lòng hiếu khách và sự quý trọng. Resort này đẹp và sang trọng có lẽ thuộc loại “đệ nhất đẳng” tại Đà Lạt, tọa lạt tại một vị trí độc đáo bên bờ hồ Tuyền Lâm, có lẽ là resort đầu tiên của khu hồ. Resort có sức phục vụ các hội nghị “ma-mút” rất lớn, nhưng trong những ngày ít khách, nó chìm trong không gian lắng đọng thần tiên. Đã từng có một đoàn khách Thái Lan từ Chiang Mai đến nghỉ, để được thiền với vài vị sư của họ, bởi họ tìm thấy ở đây một không khí lý tưởng cho việc hành thiền!
Tôi hôm đó, vợ chồng GS ‘t Hooft được chiêu đãi một bữa cơm Việt Nam thanh lịch rồi đi ngủ sớm sau một chuyến bay mười nghìn cây số. Khách mời tiệc tối là TS Phạm S, phó chủ tịch UBND tĩnh Lâm Đồng phụ trách khoa học công nghệ. Ông là người ủng hộ tích cực cuộc thăm viếng của GS ‘t Hooft.

Sáng hôm sau, tôi chắc rằng khi vén các bức màn cửa sổ để nhìn ra khung cảnh bên ngoài, ông bà t’ Hooft sẽ cảm nhận một cảnh “thần tiên” có thật: trước mặt là hồ Tuyền Lâm nước xanh lung linh, xung quanh là rừng thông hàng hàng trên các sườn đồi lượn khúc xen lẫn những tia nắng vàng ấm áp đầu tiên của ngày. Mặt trời, rừng thông xanh, sự tĩnh lặng bao trùm, một cảnh tượng hài hòa thánh thiện biết bao. Chắc phải vui lắm đối với ông bà, giúp mau quên nỗi đi xa mệt nhọc. Ở “thiên đường” đâu ai bao giờ biết mệt. Đất nước của ông bà là đồng bằng. Cái “núi” đầu tiên ông thấy ở tuổi thơ, như được kể trong tự truyện (Tiểu sử Giáo sư Gerard ‘t Hooft), chỉ là một cái đồi cao hơn 100 mét ở Anh!
Điểm tâm xong, ông bà ‘t Hooft, với sự phối hợp với Sở du lịch tỉnh Lâm Đồng, được đưa đi tham quan một số nơi và giải thích về thành phố “Paris nhỏ” này. Xe chạy ngang qua hồ Xuân Hương vào khu trung tâm cho biết. Thành phố tương đối khang trang hơn trước, tuy cũng có vài kiến trúc “hiện đại” không mấy phù hợp lắm với cái nền cổ điển. Ông bà đi thăm một số nhà thờ kiến trúc xưa, trong đó có “nhà thờ con gà”, tức nhà thờ chính tòa đường Trần Phú (tên xưa St Nicholas of Bari Cathedral), nhà ga xưa Đà Lạt, trường Cao đẳng sư phạm Đà Lạt (tên xưa Petit Lycée Dalat), tất cả có kiến trúc Pháp ấn tượng. Và trưa hôm đó ông bà đến thăm làng nuôi dạy trẻ mồ côi SOS của vợ chồng GS Trần Thanh Vân & Lê Kim Ngọc gầy dựng. Buổi thăm trẻ mồ côi có lẽ là một sự kiện thú vị và sinh động nhất đối với ông bà. Khoảng 150 em, cùng với những “bà mẹ nuôi” tề tựu trong sân làng SOS để đón tiếp hai vị khách quý. Họ chụp ảnh lưu niệm và ăn trưa chung trong sân làng. Mọi người đều cảm thấy niềm vui lạ. GS ‘t Hooft nói ý nghĩ của ông, làm sao để các em được giáo dục sớm đến với khoa học. Tôi thầm nghĩ, một chuyến tham quan ở planetarium Quy Nhơn sắp khai trương sẽ là một cuộc khám phá truyệt vời trong đời thơ ấu của các em! Việt Nam làm gì có? Làm gì có những công trình giáo dục khoa học kỹ thuật như thế? Làm gì có được những “cánh cửa sổ” mở ra thế giới khoa học công nghệ, những thứ đã định hình nền văn minh phương Tây, và từ lâu đã tràn qua châu Á?
Buổi chiều trời mưa nên tiết mục chèo kayak trên hồ Tuyền Lâm bị hủy. Tối đến ông bà đi dự buổi chiêu đãi của Sở Văn hóa và Thông tin và nghe nhạc cồng chiêng. Ông bà đã tham gia nhiệt tình vào sinh hoạt văn nghệ với các nghệ nhân dân tộc nam nữ trong những bộ đồ và dụng cụ âm nhạc đặc trưng của họ. Từ hạt Higgs thâm sâu, và các hạt cơ bản ông trở về sống với những cảm giác của nhân loại xa xưa và mộc mạc.
Khác với vợ, GS ‘t Hooft lúc nào cũng ít nói, tập trung. Ông chăm chú ngắm các công trình kiến trúc Pháp và chụp ảnh các loài hoa lạ. Ông không dễ để ngoại cảnh kéo ra khỏi thế giới của ông. Ông giống một “absent-minded professor”, nhưng không phải “đãng trí”, mà luôn luôn sống trong “chánh niệm” trong thế giới của ông.

Sáng hôm sau chúng tôi đến trường Đại học Đà Lạt. Ngài hiệu trưởng Nguyễn Đức Hòa, Phó chủ tịch UBND tỉnh Lâm Đồng, TS Phạm S, Phó hiệu trưởng Nguyễn Văn Kết và nhiều vị lãnh đạo khác đã có mặt sẵn lúc 9 giờ, rất đúng hẹn. Họ mời GS ‘t Hooft và chúng tôi vào phòng riêng để chào mừng, và giới thiệu hoạt động của đại học, cũng như nhân sự. Có vợ chồng GS Trần Hà Anh và chị Hà Ngọc Mai, những Việt kiều Pháp đã gắn bó với đại học từ những năm hòa bình lập lại. Có GS Phù Chí Hòa, người làm vật lý lý thuyết thuộc thế hệ hòa bình, đồng thời là trưởng khoa sư phạm, GS vật lý rất trẻ Nguyễn Đăng Chiến. Tất cả buổi nói chuyện cũng như thuyết trình sau đó đều được thông dịch bởi một người chúng tôi được biết dưới cái tên Tú Anh, duyên dáng và rất chuyên nghiệp. Cô tốt nghiệp tiến sĩ vật lý tại Hàn Quốc, và là trưởng phòng quan hệ quốc tế của đại học. Cô đã góp phần quan trọng trong sự thành công của buổi diễn thuyết.
Hiệu trưởng Nguyễn Đức Hòa đánh giá cao sự hiện diện của GS ‘t Hooft thông qua tổ chức Gặp gỡ Việt Nam của GS Trần Thanh Vân. GS ‘t Hooft là nhà khoa học đạt giải Nobel đầu tiên đến thăm và nói chuyện, đó là một vinh dự rất lớn cho Đại học, ông nói.
Phòng diễn thuyết đại học lớn vừa phải, có sức chứa khoảng hơn 100 người. Khi chúng tôi đến, phòng đầy ắp người, phần lớn các bạn trẻ, trong một không khí náo nức. Chỉ hơi tiếc một điều, hôm đó là thứ hai, các em học sinh cấp III, nhất là của các trường chuyên, phải đi thi, nên các em không thể có mặt, điều GS Trần Thanh Vân lấy làm tiếc.

Lần theo bài nói chuyện
Bài thuyết trình của GS Gerard ‘t Hooft là rất thú vị cho những người yêu vật lý, vẻ lên một cầu vòng ngủ sắc của vật lý hiện đại đã diễn ra nửa đầu và nửa sau thế kỷ trước. Ông đi từ thế giới phân tử, thế giới nanao, sang thế giới hạt cơ bản như quark, lepton và gluon, và các lực chi phối, lực yếu, lực điện từ và lực mạnh, tất cả tạo thành cái gọi là Mô hình chuẩn mà ông là một trong những người cha khai sinh. Mô hình này đã hình thành rõ nét những năm đầu1970 và có thể gải thích tất cả các hiện tượng vi mô hoàn toàn khớp với các kết quả thí nghiệm. Cao điểm là hạt Higgs, và cơ chế BEH (Brout-Englert-Higgs), cơ chế đã tạo ra khối lượng cho vật chất, mà nếu không có, sẽ không có gì hết, kể cả chúng ta. Thế giới hạt cơ bản được qui định bởi cơ học lượng tử và thuyết tương đối hẹp Einstein.
Những vẫn còn một lực còn nằm ngoài mô hình trên. Đó là lực hấp dẫn, lực cực kỳ yếu so với ba lực nguyên tử trên, nhưng lại có “quyền năng” điều khiển các khối lượng vật chất cấp hành tinh, thiên hà. Lực này được giải thích lần đầu tiên bởi Isaac Newton thế kỷ 17 như định luật hấp dẫn vũ trụ, tỷ lệ nghịch với bình phương khoảng cách. Hơn 250 sau lực này được Albert Einstein “tinh luyện” bằng thuyết tương đối rộng với hệ thống các phương trình trường diễn tả lực hấp dẫn như độ cong của không-thời gian là thế giới thực chúng ta đang sống. Thuyết này có khả năng diễn tả lực hấp dẫn chính xác hơn ở những nơi mà lực này thất bại với Newton.
Chính từ thuyết tương đối rộng này người ra rút ra những hệ quả mang tính “kỳ dị” khó tin: big bangvào buổi sơ khai của vũ trụ, và lỗ đen nơi “chôn vùi” ngay tất cả những gì đến gần nó.
Lỗ đen là những vật thể lạ lùng, do mật độ vật chất tập trung cao độ nên nó có thể hút tất cả vật chất, cả ánh sáng nào đến gần nó, và không cho bất cứ cái gì thoát đi. Nhưng các thăng giáng lượng tử (quantum fluctuations) trong một trường hấp lực mạnh − và đây là khám phá độc đáo của Hawking những năm đầu 1970 − lại cho phép bức xạ thoát ra khỏi quyền năng của hấp lực vô cùng mạnh mẽ, tạo thành bức xạ Hawking một cách yếu ớt với một nhiệt độ nhất định. Lỗ đen, do đó, với thời gian sẽ tự mất dần năng lượng và khối lượng của nó. Đó là một nghịch lý, và cũng là nghịch lý giữa lực hấp dẫn và cơ học lượng tử. Các lỗ đen càng nhỏ, dòng hạt phát ra càng mạnh, làm cho lỗ đen càng nhỏ hơn, cường độ tiếp tục tăng lên cho đến khi bùng nỗ!
Tại đường chân trời (nơi không có điểm trở về), thời gian ngừng chảy đối với người quan sát từ xa, nhưng đối với một người bước vào đó, thì anh ta vẫn nghĩ thời gian vẫn tiếp tục. Hãy tưởng tượng điều gì xảy ra khi chúng ta xem xét cơ học lượng tử trong sự hiện diện của các lỗ đen? Những điều lạ lùng xảy ra đối với các hạt. Còn không gian, thời gian thì sao? Trên nguyên tắc, các lỗ đen có thể nhỏ hơn những hạt căn bản nhỏ nhất đã tìm thấy trong các phòng thí nghiệm.
Các lỗ đen có phải chính chúng là những hạt cơ bản không? Đâu là các phương trình cho một lỗ đen? Lỗ đen sẽ dẫn ta đến một “thế giới khác” bằng “cầu nối Einstein-Rosen” (ký hiệu ER)? Sự hiện diện của “thế giới khác” dẫn đến các vấn đề. Thông tin có thể rò rĩ sang thế giới kia, và trở lại chăng?
Nếu thế thì một lỗ đen riêng lẽ tự nó không thể tuân thủ các phương trình cơ học lượng tử. Nhưng chẳng phải chúng ta đã sử dụng cơ học lượng tử để khám phá các hạt Hawking hay sao? “Không thể được”, theo Leonard Susskind (Quyển sách tham khảo: The Black Hole War – My Battle with Stephen Hawking to Make the World Safe for Quantum Mechanics của Leonard Susskind)
Bây giờ chúng tôi tin tưởng rằng cầu Einstein-Rosen đơn giản nối các điểm đối ngược nhau của cùng một lỗ đen. [Juan Maldacena và Leonard Susskind gợi ý rằng ER = EPR, nghĩa là cầu nối Einstein-Rosen có tính chất thực hiện sự vướng víu lượng tử giữa hai miền của lỗ đen. Người viết] Chúng tôi đã khám phá rằng điểu này đã tái lập một cách chính xác các định luật cơ bản của cơ học lượng tử cho một lỗ đen đơn độc.
(Một slide của bài diễn thuyết powerpoint của GS ‘t Hooft. Cám ơn GS.)
Lỗ đen là một không bào (vacuole): bên trong nó, không-thời gian không phải rỗng. Và cũng không có chút không-thời gian nào trong đó!
Nếu bạn có thể vượt qua đường chân trời với tốc độ lớn hơn ánh sáng, bạn sẽ xuất hiện lại bên kia lỗ đen! Bởi vì lỗ sâu (wormhole, như cầu ER) kết nối lỗ đen với chính nó. Nhưng bạn xuất hiện với sự đảo ngược-CP (CP-inverted; C phép biến đổi liên hợp điện tích (charge conjugation), P phép biến đổi chẵn lẻ điện tích (parity transformation), và đảo ngược-T (sự đảo ngược thời gian, time reversal). Lúc đó sẽ có “hệ quả quan sát được”: sự vướng víu lượng tử đối cực của các hạt Hawking [antipodal entanglement (EPR) of the Hawking particles]. Có thể các thăng giáng lượng tử dẫn đến các “lỗ đen ảo” (virtual black holes) khắp mọi nơi!
Ở đó kết thúc câu chuyện hành trình vật lý mà GS ‘t Hooft muốn trải lòng với thính giả Đà Lạt.
***
Tôi nghĩ, mọi người hôm đó “ngỡ ngàng” trước bức tranh của vũ trụ diễn ra trước mắt, và có nhiều điều không hiểu. Nhưng tôi tin chắc rằng thính giả Đà Lạt hôm nay hiểu nhiều hơn các thính giả thời Einstein đối với thuyết tương đối một trăm năm trước! Nhưng sự thu hút và truyền cảm hứng mãnh mẽ của mới là điều quan trọng hơn. Có nhiều câu hỏi, nhất là từ các bạn trẻ, đã được nói ra, cũng như chưa được nói ra. Tiếc thời gian đã không cho phép. Về câu hỏi làm sao để trở thành một nhà vật lý lý thuyết giỏi, GS ‘t Hooft cho rằng cần phải có đủ độ đam mê  hoài bão, nếu không muốn nói cháy bỏng, như những điều kiện tiên quyết. Và lao động cật lực. Điều hàm ý phải có một cuộc sống khác, nếu không muốn nói trong “cô đơn và tự do” của Humboldt. Ông đã và còn đang thiết kế một trang mạng “thích học vật lý” giúp sinh viên, người đam mê tự học thêm, và ở đó ông liệt kê những lãnh vực của vật lý hiện đại mà các sinh viên có hoài bảo có thể tham khảo (xem Giáo sư vật lý giải Nobel Gerard ‘t Hooft thăm Đà Lạt: Thông cáo báo chí)
Dường như sau Einstein, chúng ta đang di chuyển đến cột mốc Hawking quan trọng như một bản chỉ đường trong cuộc chinh phục vũ trụ. Trong chốc lát, khám phá của Hawking kết nối ba miền khoa học với nhau: lực hấp dẫn, hay thuyết tương đối rộng, cơ học lượng tử, và khoa học nhiệt. Lỗ đen có thể là viên đá rosetta của vật lý học như dấu hiệu nóng phục vụ cuộc săn lùng bản đồ của Chúa mà Einstein từng trăn trở.
Lỗ đen quả thật chất chứa rất nhiều bí ẩn, khiến các nhà vật lý hàng đầu tập trung vào đó. Bekenstein và Hawking khám phá rằng các bit thông tin chứa trong lỗ đen không hề tỷ lệ với thể tích như thông lệ, mà với diện tích (!), nghĩa là chúng được phân bổ bên trên bề mặt của lỗ đen! Điều đó cho thấy các độ tự do (degrees of freedom, tương ứng với entropy) trong trường hấp lực tỉ lệ với diện tích, khác với những trường hợp không có hấp lực thì tỉ lệ với thể tích. Điều đó có nghĩa là lỗ đen tuân thủ nguyên lý toàn ảnh (holographic principle, ‘t Hooft 93, Susskind 94). Năm 1997, Juan Maldacena chứng minh điều này cho cặp không gian đối ngẫu (duality) /hay tương ứng (correspondence) AdS/CFT. AdS (anti-de Sitter space) có thể hình dung là phần trong của một quả cầu nhiều chiều, một dạng của vũ trụ giới hạn, trong khi CFT (Conformal Field Theory) là bề mặt của nó. Đối ngẫu, hay tương ứng có nghĩa rằng cả hai là tương đương. Cho nên, nếu vũ trụ là một thực thể giới hạn, thì các quá trình vật lý diễn ra trên bề mặt của nó tương đương với những gì diễn ra trong lòng thể tích nó!
Nguyên lý toàn ảnh, hay là sự tương đương giữa bề mặt và không gian bên trong. Những sự kiện vật lý ở bề mặt có thể tái tạo tất cả mọi thứ diễn ra bên trong thể tích của không gian. (Courtesy of Jen Christensen & George Musser)
Đàm Thanh Sơn và các cộng sự nghiên cứu một loại nhớt, và tìm thấy lỗ đen có một độ nhớt vô cùng thấp. Do tính chất tương ứng toàn ảnh nói trên, các hạt quark và gluon tương tác mạnh ở nhiệt độ cao cũng sẽ có độ nhớt rất thấp. Kết quả lý thuyết này đã được kiểm tra là đúng tại phòng thí nghiệm Brookhaven, xác nhận nguyên lý toàn ảo và sự hữu ích của lý thuyết dây đã được sử dung ở đây. Kết quả này có tiếng vang rất lớn trong cộng đồng vật lý. Maldecena có nhắc đến kết quả này trong bài viết The Illusion of Gravity (Ảo giác Hấp dẫn) trên tạp chí Scientific American, 2007.
Tranh luận về thông tin của vật thể khi rơi vào còn hay mất vẫn còn tiếp diễn sôi nổi, cũng như về bản chất không-thời gian, mối quan hệ của nó và hiệu ứng EPR (vướng víu lượng tử Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen). Hệ thức ER=EPR giữa cầu nối Einstein-Rosen và vướng víu lượng tử EPR được Leonard Susskind và Juan Maldacena đề nghị năm 2013, là một tiên đoán nói rằng các hạt vướng víu được nối nhau bởi một cầu ER (hay lỗ sâu), và hệ thức đó có thể làm nền tảng để thống nhất thuyết tương đối rộng và cơ học lượng tử. Lỗ sâu có tác dụng phi cục bộ (nonlocality), nghĩa là có tác dụng như EPR. Người ta nghĩ rằng giữa các hạt vướng víu nhau có thể có một lỗ dâu bé tí nối liền để thực hiện hiệu ứng vướng víu phi cục bộ. EPR, gắn liền với các tên gọi “phi cục bộ”, hay “tác dụng ma quái từ xa” (spooky action at a distance) như Einstein gọi, một thời gian dài bị bỏ quên, rồi được khám phá có thể có những ứng dụng siêu cao cấp trong công nghệ lượng tử, giờ đây có thể trở thành một chìa khóa quan trọng để hiểu bản chất của không-thời gian và cơ học lượng tử! Trong mạch này, tiên đoán Ryu-Takayanagi của hai nhà vật lý Nhật Bản nói rằng entropy vướng víu (entanglement entropy) có một ý nghĩa hình học cho không-thời gian trong một trường hấp lực, cho thấy có mối quan hệ mật thiết giữa vướng víu và hình học của không-thời gian. Hy vọng qua entropy, các phương trình Einstein của thuyết tương đối rộng có thể được tìm thấy lại (Mark van Raamsdonk). Người ta tin rằng EPR sẽ tạo ra không gian. Không có vướng víu, sẽ không có không gian như chúng ta đang sống. Những điều vô cùng thú vị! Ở đây chúng ta nhớ lại rằng “tác dụng từ xa” của lực hấp dẫn Newton ngay từ đầu không thể giải thích được, đó là chỗ lúng túng của ông, làm cho nhiều người bán tín bán nghi. Giải pháp tạm bợ của ông là giả thuyết có một môi trường ether trong không gian làm trung gian cho lực truyền. Mãi 250 năm sau, lực huyền bí này mới được giải thích bằng độ cong của không-thời gian trong thuyết tương đối rộng của Einstein! Và tác dụng của lực không phải là tức thì như tác dụng ma quái từ xa của EPR, mà chỉ được truyền đi từ vật thể này đến vật thể khác theo vận tốc ánh sáng.
Nếu hai phần của vũ trụ vướng víu càng nhiều với nhau, chúng sẽ tiến gần hơn làm thành một khối. Và nếu ngược lại, không gian sẽ tan rã. Có lẽ cũng đúng cho xã hội, trong đó “vướng víu” là các sinh hoạt dân sự kết nối nhau dưới muôn vàn hình thức. Càng có nhiều vướng víu dân sự, quốc gia càng phát triển và vững bền.

Bức tranh ngộ nghĩnh của hai sumo khủng và bé hạt tiêu có thể minh họa cho sự khác biệt của lực hấp dẫn, gravity, thứ chuyển động những vật thể khổng lồ như hành tinh, thiên hà, đối lập với cơ học lượng tử, thứ chuyển động các vật thể nhỏ bé như nguyên tử và các hạt cơ bản. Sự kết hợp của chúng tạo ra bức tranh vũ trụ hôm nay. Người ta vẫn chưa hiểu giữ chúng có điểm chung nào, lại càng không thể thống nhất chúng.
Con người vẫn đi tiếp để thấu hiểu và thống nhất lực hấp dẫn và cơ học lượng tử. Nhưng bất chấp khó khăn, mặc cho lời “cảnh báo” của Wolfgang Pauli: không nên tìm cách thống nhất những gì Chúa đã tách ra, các bộ óc tài năng vẫn đi tìm cái mắc xích còn thiếu. Cái toàn thể, như Hegel nói, mới là chân lý tối hậu. Mục tiêu thống nhất có thể là chuyện thần thoại, nhưng chẳng phải chuyện thần thoại đã từng nuôi dưỡng khoa học hay sao? Và sự thống nhất bao giờ cũng đem lại những kết quả mới hoàn toàn ngạc nhiên, như sự thống nhất điện-từ, với sự tiên đoán sóng điện từ và giúp hiểu bản chất ánh sáng, hay sự thống nhất hai lực yếu và điện từ, gọi là lực điện-yếu, tiên đoán bốn hạt boson không khối lượng của lực, những thứ được tìm thấy sau đó. Chính lý thuyết mới quyết định cái gì có thể quan sát được, như quan điểm triết lý của Einstein!

Ngày hôm đó, tôi có cảm tưởng, trên bầu trời Đà Lạt xuất hiện một vì sao chổi, sao chổi của tri thức  ánh sáng. Nếu nhìn xa hơn, chỉ cách đó vài trăm cây số, người ta sẽ còn thấy một nơi mà các sao chổi xuất hiện từng chùm: Quy Nhơn. Hãy chiêm ngưỡng, và biến năng lượng bên trong thành tác phẩm. Khoa học nói cho cùng là tác phẩm của óc tò mò vô hạn.
Từ nghìn năm, người ta nhìn thấy sao chổi trên trời mà không lý giải được. Isaac Newton, người huyền thoại, đầu tiên lý giải được bằng thuyết sức hấp dẫn vạn vật, tính được chu kỳ thăm viếng của sao chổi. Và chính ông đã trở thành một sao chổi trên bầu trời khoa học thế giới. Khoa học đã tạo ra nhiều sao chổi, có những cái họp nhau từng chùm. Sao chổi Newton chiếu sáng cả bầu trời cho nhân loại hơn 250 năm, trước khi một vì sao chổi khác vĩ đại không kém xuất hiện: Albert Einstein. Thời đại Einstein là thời có lẽ xuất hiện nhiều sao chổi nhất trong lịch sử chỉ trong ba thập niên đầu thế kỷ 20, như một trận “sao băng”.
Để hiểu tầm quan trọng của GS ‘t Hooft, chúng ta hãy nghe Leonard Susskind, một nhà vật lý học lớn của Đại học Stanford nói về ông:
Gerard ‘t Hooft là một người Hà Lan. Nếu đo lường ở số lượng những đóng góp to lớn cho vật lý theo đầu người, thì người Hà Lan chắc chắn là những nhà vật lý lớn nhất của thế giới. Christiaan Huygens, Hendrick Antoon Lorentz, Willem de Sitter, Heike Kamerlingh Onnes, George Uhlenbeck, Johannes Diderik van der Waals, Hendrik Gerhard Casimir, Martinus Veltman, Gerard ‘t Hooft, họ chỉ là một số ít những tên tuổi lịch sử lớn nhất. Lorentz và ‘t Hooft có thể nói là những khuôn mặt lịch sử lớn nhất của vật lý. Đối với tôi, ‘t Hooft, hơn cả một nhà vật lý đương thời nào, tượng trưng cho tinh thần của Einstein, Lorentz, và Bohr. Mặc dù ông trẻ hơn tôi sáu tuổi, tôi luôn luôn kính sợ (in awe) ông.
Tôi vui mừng mà nói rằng ‘t Hooft không chỉ là một trong những anh hùng của tôi nhưng còn là một người bạn quý. Mặc dù ông giỏi hơn tôi nhiều về phương diện toán học, tôi luôn luôn cảm nhận trong những đồng nghiệp của tôi, ông là một người mà tôi thấy gần gủi nhất về mặt quan điểm. Trải qua năm tháng, chúng tôi cùng làm việc về những bài toán khó, bị khổ sở vì cùng những nghịch lý, và có những dự đoán tương tự về giải pháp cho những bài toán này. Tôi nghĩ, cũng như tôi, Gerard là một nhà vật lý rất bảo thủ, người không chịu chấp nhận một giải pháp triệt để nào cho một bài toán trừ khi ông cảm thấy tất cả những con đường khác đều vô ích. Và khi đó, ông không biết sợ hãi là gì.

Chiều hôm đó, rời Đà Lạt chúng tôi lên đường QL27C để đưa ông bà ‘t Hooft đi xuống thành phố biển Nha Trang. Con đường này được viền hai bên bằng núi và vách đá, thỉnh thoảng có những con suối rất dốc, trông rất ngoạn mục. Mùa mưa chắc còn ngoạn mục hơn nhiều lần. Tối đó chúng tôi có một bửa cơm do bạn bè của anh chị Tiêu Như Phương thếch đãi trong không khí hết sức vui vẻ và cơi mở. Sáng hôm sau tại Nha Trang chúng tôi đưa ông bà đến thăm viện bảo tàng Bác sĩ Yersin nằm trong Viện Pasteur do ông thành lập một thế kỷ trước, một cuộc tham quan rất thú vị, một con người sống vị khoa học, khám phá – cho Việt Nam. Sau đó chúng tôi đi Quốc lộ 1A thẳng ra Quy Nhơn. Đường tương đối tốt, cảnh quang thú vị. Trên đường chúng tôi ghé thăm “Ghềnh đá đĩa” nằm sát biển, một cái tên nghe lạ, nhưng là nơi hàng vạn cọc đá dài hình khối xếp san sát nhau thành một cảnh quan rất lạ mắt. Ông bà ‘t Hooft dừng lại và thưởng ngoạn rất lâu. Tại cầu Bình Phú, nơi rẽ vào thành phố Quy Nhơn khoảng 30 km, đoàn chúng tôi ngạc nhiên được một đoàn xe đặc biệt của thành phố gửi ra để dẫn đường và hộ tống, vừa chạy vừ kéo còi, đèn hiệu chớp chớp, công an ra dấu để xe giao thông phải tránh! Quả là thành phố Quy Nhơn đã dành cho GS ‘t Hooft một cuộc tiếp đón hết sức trọng thể như một chính khách. Khi xuống xe trước khách sạn, nơi các vị khách sẽ ở trong hai ngày tới, nhiều phóng viên báo đài đã trực sẵn. Hai ông bà được một vị Phó chủ tịch UBND Quy Nhơn và GS Lê Kim Ngọc đón tiếp và trò chuyện thân mật, xen lẫn với những cuộc phỏng vấn của báo đài.

Ở tuổi 72, GS ‘t Hooft có thể nghỉ ngơi và “gác kiếm”, “vui thú điền viên”, như người Việt Nam quen nói. Nhưng không, ông vẫn miệt mài theo đuổi những vấn đề vật lý ở biên giới tri thức, giống như Einstein cho đến những ngày tháng cuối cùng. Ông không xem khoa học như một nghề để sống, mà xem khoa học như một tiếng gọi, một sứ mệnh ông có nhiệm vụ khám phá và truyền bá. Ông xem khoa học như một lý tưởng sống, đúng như tinh thần của Humboldt, và ông cũng sống “cô đơn và tự do”. Ông là người đi gieo hạt, như hình ảnh trong bức tranh Người gieo hạt buổi sáng của danh họa Vincent van Gogh, một đồng hương của ông cuối thế kỷ 19. Ông cũng không phải là trường hợp riêng lẻ, mà cả nền văn hóa của phương Tây là như thế. Họ sống với khoa học cho đến trọn đời. Khoa học chính là lẽ sống. Họ nghiêm chỉnh với khoa học, điều cần thiết như GS ‘t Hooft nói, cho nên họ mới có khoa học. Khoa học quá thú vị, và “thiêng liêng” để “gác kiếm”, hay hưởng nhàn. Con mắt của các nhà khoa học kết nối với “con mắt của Chúa” như nhà thần học Đức Meister Eckhart thế kỷ 13 diễn tả khi ông bàn về bản chất của quan hệ con người với Chúa: “Con mắt mà qua đó tôi nhìn Chúa cũng là cùng con mắt mà qua đó Chúa nhìn tôi. Mắt của tôi và mắt của Chúa là một, và cùng một cái nhìn, và một tri thức, và một tình yêu.” Phải có con mắt sâu sắc như thế mới nhìn thấy Chúa, thấy vũ trụ. Làm sao không “thiêng liêng”, đầy cảm hứng và thôi thúc được?
Bức tranh Người gieo hạt khi mặt trời lên, năm 1888, của danh họa Vincent van Gogh
Xin mở ngoặc: chúng ta nhớ rằng năm 1925 Einstein có một chuyến viếng thăm ba nước châu Mỹ La tinh Brazil, Uruguay và Argentina kéo dài hai tháng, đặc biệt tại Rio de Janeiro, Brazil và Buenos Aires, Argentina. Mục đích của chuyến đi là truyền bá các ý tưởng khoa học, quan điểm hòa bình, và tranh thủ các cộng đồng Do Thái ủng hộ Đại học Hebrew. Ông có một chương trình làm việc dày đặc. Ông được các tổng thống và bộ trưởng tiếp đón. Ông diễn thuyết về thuyết tương đối cho các nhà khoa học cũng như những người-không khoa học. Ở những nơi cho đại chúng, có cả các quan chức tham dự, đưa cả gia đình con cái theo. Hiểu khoa học không quan trọng bằng nhìn thấy và nghe con người đặc biệt này để được truyền cảm hứng. Thời điểm đó, Argentina đã có những sinh viên được đào tạo tại Đức, nên một số nhật báo đã đưa lên trang của mình toàn bộ bài nói chuyện mà sinh viên ghi lại được cho công chúng. Argentina là quốc gia có nền khoa học phát triển nhất ở châu Mỹ La tinh. Cuộc thăm viếng tại Argentina cũng đã được chuẩn bị từ nhiều phía, từ nhà triết học José Ortega y Gasset, chuyên gia thuyết tương đối và bạn thân của Einstein, Paul Langevin, và nhà toán học Rey Pastor, người đã quen Einstein tại Berlin và hết lòng vận động cho chuyến thăm của ông. Tại Buenos Aires, ngoài buổi nói chuyện trước cộng đồng Do Thái, Einstein có 7 hội nghị tại phân khoa các khoa học tự nhiên, vật lý và chính xác, và một bài diễn văn về “chủ nghĩa thực chứng và chủ nghĩa duy tâm: hình học và không gian hữu hạn và vô hạn của Thuyết tương đối rộng” tại khoa triết và văn chương.
Chuyến đi của Einstein đã có những tác động đặc biệt lên cộng đồng đại học Argentina, lên các giới chính trị có trách nhiệm thiết kế các chính sách văn hóa, làm cho họ hiểu rằng nghiên cứu trong các ngành khoa học cơ bản, toán học, vật lý lý thuyết cũng là một bộ phận cấu thành của văn hóa, cái đã bị sao lãng trong quá khứ. Các khoa học cơ bản chính là cỗ máy dẫn đến những thay đổi cơ bản về hiểu biết của con người đối với thế giới và tự nhiên. Các ý tưởng khoa học của Einstein cho thấy cần phải tư duy lại mới về bản chất của tri thức khoa học, và thực tại vật lý. Những điều trên diễn ra sau Phong trào cải cách Đại học năm 1918 nhằm làm cho đại học có quyền tự chủ, một phong trào có ảnh hưởng lên toàn khu vực. Ngày nay, Argentina, đất nước không phải chỉ nổi tiếng về bóng đá với Maradona và Messi, đã có người khổng lồ Juan Martín Maldacena (sinh năm 1968) trên tuyến đầu của vật lý lý thuyết thế giới. Ở độ tuổi ba mươi, ông đã có ảnh hưởng lớn nhất lên ngành vật lý lý thuyết hơn bất cứ ai cùng thế hệ ông. Chính ông là người đã biến Nguyên lý toàn ảnh trở thành một khoa học hữu ích. Ông có nhiều đóng góp toán học cho vật lý, như Witten, và có ảnh hưởng lớn lên sự diễn giải vật lý của toán học, như Polchinski (Susskind). Ông được trao tặng các huân chương dang giá Dirac, Lorentz và các giải thưởng Fundamental Physics, Pomeranchuk. Người ta tính đến nay, trong 21 người được giải Lorentz có 11 người được giải Nobel. Chắc chắn đến lược mình, ông sẽ tác động mạnh mẽ lên sự phát triển vật lý hiện đại ở Argentina và châu Mỹ La Tinh nói chung. Phải chăng đã có một “vướng víu lượng tử” nào đó qua nhiều thế hệ giữa Einstein và Maldecena? Và chúng ta có quyền mơ một vướng víu như thế cho Việt Nam?

Trước khi từ giả Việt Nam, GS ‘t Hooft nhắn gửi GS Trần Thanh Vân những lời sau đây:
“Chuyến thăm Đà Lạt và lộ trình khám phá VN Đà Lạt−Nha Trang−Quy Nhơn ngắn ngủi quá, nhưng tôi biết đây không phải là lần duy nhất vợ chồng tôi đến những nơi tuyệt diệu này. Cho tôi gởi lời biết ơn đến tất cả mọi người đã lo cho chúng tôi, nhất là những người đã khởi xướng việc này, các bạn của tôi: Vân-Kim Ngọc!”
Trước đó, tại Hội nghị khoa học Quy Nhơn, một GS Nobel kinh tế Na Uy (Finn Kydland) sau cuộc trò chuyện với GS ‘t Hooft về chuyến viếng thăm Đà Lạt, đã thốt lên: “Không biết vợ chồng tôi cũng sẽ có được diễm phúc này không?” Điều đó xác nhận chuyến thăm Đà Lạt của GS ‘t Hooft là một sự thành công! Được như thế là nhờ sự ủng hộ hết nhiệt tình của UBND tỉnh, TS Phạm S, của hiệu trưởng Đại học Đà Lạt, GS Nguyễn Đức Hòa, và sau cùng nhưng không kém phần quan trọng, của vợ chồng doanh nhân Tiêu Như Phương và Bạch Mai đã hết lòng vì một trái tim cho khoa học và tri thức.

Estimado bloggers: “El Arte ha estado presente en el Festival Dr. Alfonso Ortiz Tirado desde 1985… La Ruta del Arte debe mantenerse no sólo como un punto de encuentro de artistas-público sino como espacio de desarrollo y oportunidad para reflexionar cual es el objetivo artístico de ella en Álamos y en el resto de las subsedes”, citó, Alina Martínez Ceballos, titular de la Dirección de Artes Visuales en la inauguración oficial de la Ruta de Arte en patio del Museo Costumbrista de la ciudad colonial de Álamos.

Tiene razón porque en ella han participado en forma tangencial dos colectivos importantes para el estudio de la Plástica Sonorense, como lo han sido la colonia de artistas norteamericanos, nacionales y otros extranjeros radicados en esta ciudad  y el otrora colectivo de “Los Famosos e Internacionales Artistas de Festival Doctor Ortiz Tirado”  en la Plaza de Armas, tema a tratar después de esta crónica.

Sin duda alguna la mejor galería de arte comercial por su curaduría y museografía es la galería Casa San Miguel, administrada por el galerista norteamericano Stephen McKelvy, situada por la calle B. Juárez a dos cuadras al sur del Palacio Municipal

Al tocar su puerta fui atendido  y conducido  cordialmente por un recorrido emocional por su acervo de obras de los artistas Nonnie Thompson, Silvestre Montijo, Jesús Gilberto Buitimea, Catherine Ring Callingham y concluyendo con otras hermosas obras de su colección particular muy apreciada por él y su amable esposa Donna.

Monnie Thompson es una reconocida artista norteamericana radicada en Francia. La lectura de sala, refiere: -Inicia a pintar en la ciudad de Londres… Obra figurativa al óleo de narraciones contemporáneas sardónicas que reflejas lo absurdo de tantos estereotipos religiosos, sexuales e idiosincrasias visualmente ingeniosos. Monta su primera exposición de cuatro retratos en esta galería de Álamos.- Uno de ellos, Titulado “Make my day”. (Has mi día)

Silvestre Montijo es un artista paisajista nacido en la ciudad de Puebla de los Ángeles y radicado en Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur; la artista norteamericana Katherine Ring Callingham conocida por su estilo “Mexican Village” y murales urbanos, y el Folk Art (Arte  Mexicano) del artista yoreme Jesús Gilberto Buitimea Estrella.

Buitimea con firma artística de “Motta” es un prestigiado artista oriundo del pueblo de Bacobampo reconocido por su  estilo costumbrista e iconografía étnica de su cultura Mayo expresadas en técnica de tintes naturales de la Juya Ania o El Monte hechas por el mismo y por la obra  “Bayajorit canocopeira”. (Cueva del cerro Bayajorit) También mostró  el libro “Motta” editado sobre la obra plástica y semblanza de este magnífico pintor de la Plástica del Mayo.

Me dio gusto que el Arte Buitimea esté en esta galería porque he seguido su trayectoria y coleccionaría muchas de ellas por su narrativa de imágenes religiosas, mitológicas y parafernalia de su cultura ancestral Mayo.

“Ellos cuelgan cuadros yo diseño muros”, respondió al comentario de que su galería Casa San Miguel tenía la mejor curaduría, museografía y  espacio museográfico de toda la Ruta de Arte visitada este año. Agradeciendo el comentario sincero, entablamos una sustanciosa plática sobre la historia del arte de Álamos y de los primeros pintores (as) norteamericanos  radicados en esta ciudad colonial española.

Nos refirió sobre la vida y obra del prestigiado artista John W. Hilton: -Visitaba Álamos en las décadas de 1930 y 1940, porque aparte de pintar realizó varios estudios biológicos de la flora nativa regional y el primero en descubrir por qué saltan los famosos “frijoles salteadores de Álamos” coleccionados en muchas partes del mundo.-

-Radicó en forma permanente al adquirir esta casona colonial en la década de 1950 que yo le compré. Fue un renombrado artista por sus hermosos paisajes algunos de ellos están en la curaduría de la Casa Blanca, en la ciudad de Washington, Estados Unidos.-

-Esta es una copia de su libro “Sonora Sketch Book” de historia e ilustrado con magníficos bocetos a lápiz y a la tinta china.- Permitiéndome fotografía algunos de ellos para esta crónica y crítica de arte.

Mostrando también, otro paisaje de la artista Kathy Hilton con igual tendencia paisajística de su padre y refirió sobre la vida y obra de la artista Margot Findley a quien conocí en persona, me concedió una fantástica entrevista y admiré su obra.

En la sala contigua, me reveló una magnífica reproducción anónima en gran formato de una famosa obra de Paul Rubens al estilo barroco. Pieza clásica que todo amante del arte debe de contemplar si visita esta ciudad.

Así mismo  una hermosa obra en tejido artístico de Vietnam y las esculturas de Fernando Quiroz del poblado de Pótam, mencionando: -Él ha sido escogido para exhibir en el Consulado Mexicano de Nogales o Tucson, único mexicano que ha logrado tal distinción.- Buena noticia porque admiro sus esculturas contemporáneas y las coleccionaría por su calidad artística y estética contemporánea.

          “Pintaron su Huella” en la Ruta del Arte FAOT-2019 en Álamos      Cache   Translate Page      

Estimados bloggers:  La otra parte de la Ruta del Arte en el “XXXV Festival Dr. Alfonso Ortiz Tirado” fue la participación de la Comunidad Artística de Álamos agrupando a  pintores (as), escultores, ceramistas y fotógrafos norteamericanos y nacional radicados en esta bella ciudad colonia española de Álamos, que prefiero éste en vez de Pueblo Mágico.

Del Museo Costumbrista recorrimos la zona patrimonial de monumentos históricos protegidos por ley emitida en 1952 rumbo al Callejón del Beso hasta llegar a la pizzería “EL Beso” en vieja casona para observar la exposición individual de fotografías del fotógrafo regional Tomás Escalante Cota.

Su curaduría fue una selección de magníficas fotografías a color de paisajes silvestres,  del entorno natural, urbanos y la arquitectura histórica emblemática colonial español y otras de pose figurativa de estudio comercial fotográfico.

La museografía realizada por él mismo no cuenta con un concepto ni lectura de sala ni su semblanza, se limitó al montaje de marcos de mediano y gran formato en forma lineal desordenada casi pegadas al techo y sin dejar espacios óptimos entre ellos para mejor visualidad y apreciación del espectador.

¿Qué hermosa fotografías!, exclamé en la primera impresión.

Para luego preguntarle: ¡Donde estudio Fotografía?

-La técnica de la fotografía análoga la asimilé bajo las enseñanzas del  profesor y fotógrafo Guillermo Moreno en un taller que dio aquí en Álamos… Éstas son fotografías digitales arregladas con el programa de PhotoShop e impresión en lona.- Contestó.

Con razón con el solo nombre de su maestro fotógrafo se entendió lo artístico de ellas, pero, para la crítica de arte  las imágenes sobresalientes por su valor artístico y estético son: La de una buganvilia en flor; un portal colonial, el Callejón del Beso, la cúpula y domo de la parroquia, el palmar, el pretil de una casona frente a la Plaza de Armas y la de dos jovencitas vestidas de rojo en pose.

En La Purísima, comercio dentro de la casona contigua al museo se apreció una mini exposición colectiva por la norteamericana Katherine Ring Callingham, la alamense Ana Alejandra Anaya Roja y el novojoense  consagrado Luis Martín López Sahagún.

Para la crítica de arte, las mejores obras que conjugan los valores arriba citados, son la de unas choyas secas y vegetación por Luis Martín; “Calles de Álamos”, y “Raíces de amor”, bella obra estilo surrealista de la artista Alejandra Anaya, con su mejor lograda “Día de muertos” a quien se ha seguido su trayectoria desde sus primeros pininos en su arte en la plaza; El Nacapule”, de la reconocida artista Ring Callingham, y “Hongos PT2, linografía de Nikole Pérez Real, sin semblanza alguna.

De aquí nos fuimos a ver la exposición “Los Tarahumara”, serie de óleos de la artista Robyn Tinus, famosa artista norteamericana por sus paisajes alamenses, exhibida en el Café Luz del Sol de vieja casona. Su curaduría fue por ella misma y parece ser permanente debido a que se observaron el año pasado. No se puede decir que tuvieron una museografía por el orden sobre los muros entre mesas llenas de comensales que dificultan la observancia para la crítica de ellas.

La más bella de Tinus es “Plaza de armas” y otras más paisajistas y figurativas  al estilo “Mexican Village”  o folclore rural mexicano de Álamos. Y en el patio interior, las obras de un cactus con un correcaminos,  otra con una mujer con bules de agua y la de un caballo, con firma artística de P. Higuera.

Cruzamos la calle para entrar al nuevo local del Restaurante Reyna para observar la exposición colectiva sin título montada por los artistas locales Greg Carrico, Bingta Wolsong y Cahterine Ring Callingham, que también parecen ser decorativas del local. Sin museografía alguna las obras más bellas fueron: la acuarela “Tree” (Árbol) de Wolsong, magnífica obra de la Escuela Norteamericana de Acuarela por su transparencia y colorido; las diez graficas geométricas de intensas matices calientes de Carrico, y “Cuatro columnas”, por Callingham.

Contigua a la anterior, otra colectiva de artistas renombrados en la galería y tienda de artesanías “El Rincón del Arte”, que también parece ser permanente, con obras de Fernando Quiroz, Martín López Sahagún, Daan Hoekstra, magnífico muralista al fresco de la escuela italiana que ha sido desaprovechado su talento por la comunidad local, Frank Clement, Roberto Bloor, Margo Findley (+), Jerry Rosenfeld, Lily Sapiens, Ana Delia Salido, Lupita de Ponce, Meztli Estrada, Javier López Ortiz, Rafael Sáenz, Arturo Hernández,  Ana Bertha Waldez y Ángel Luzanilla, estos últimos de la plástica Cajeme.

En otra casona colonial reacondicionada con locales comerciales y cruzando el patio interior, la exposición individual de la firma artística Artes-Ana, que las empleadas no pudieron dar su nombre de pila. Con la misma curaduría y museografía en los muros del Café Patagonia.

Para la crítica de arte la obra más bella es “Niña sonriendo” y sus mejor logradas: “Amanecer”; “Malam Yowe”, título en idioma Yuto Azteca de  yaquis y la escultura- cerámica “El pescador”, en técnica terracota.

No se pudo acudir a las cuatro exposiciones de: “Whimsical Folk Arte”, de Peg Franken en la galería Kathy Corner por no localizarla, ni tampoco a la montada por Manfred Rapp en la galería Agave del Hotel Hacienda de los Santos, ni a la individual de Ana Alejandra Anaya Roja en Casa Pavana por la distancia retirada del centro y a otra colectiva por José María Valenzuela, María Cynthia Valenzuela y Catherine Callingham. Continua.

          Ruta del Arte en el Festival Alfonso Ortíz Tirado en Álamos, Sonora      Cache   Translate Page      

Estimados bloggers: ¡Qué placer único en el mundo! Fue escuchar repertorio de arias operísticas en voz del tenor Ignacio Búrquez y la pianista Ilución Hernández al estar admirando tres propuestas artísticas montadas sobre muros de las crujías con arcos coloniales en el patio del Palacio Municipal de la ciudad colonial de Álamos, Sonora, diseñado por el ingeniero Arthur Wronwoski en 1889.

En la planta baja, la magnífica exposición de fotografía creativa contemporánea titulada “Grimorio”, por el artista visual Misael Sámano Vargas, nativo de la Ciudad de México y fotógrafo profesional con maestría en Artes Visuales. (Grimorio es un libro de fórmulas mágicas de antiguos hechiceros).

Su curaduría, supongo, fue por entrega de estas magníficas fotografías narradoras de imágenes cromógenas e impresas sobre papel fotográfico de mediano formato con fondos negros y figuras iluminadas de rostros femeninos, brazos y manos. Su Museografía en forma lineal,  no logró un dialogo museográfico entre ellas y el espacio facilitado, realizada por los museógrafos Fidel González e Ignacio Leyva.

Para la crítica de arte, las obras más bellas por equilibrar el valor artístico con el valor estético son: “Amanecer de ámbar ardiendo”, “Remolino de picos y huesos”, “Sombras de Viento”, “Es como acariciar cristal vacío”, la más bella de todas y “Desnuda como los animales que te persiguen”.

Todas las fotografías poseen muy buena calidad técnica fotográfica por su manejo de la media luz y claroscuros sobre las imágenes rítmicas realistas que dialogan con el espectador y motivan por su valor estético un tanto conceptual. Lo mejor de la Ruta de Arte en fotografía.

Frente a la anterior, en la crujía sur se montó otra propuesta artística de la exposición de fotografía tradicional “Sonora en un instante”, de  la Sociedad Fotográfica Creativa de Sonora que motivó exclamar: ¡Que hermosos paisajes del Gran Desierto de Sonora, caramba! Expresados en fotografías a color de mediano formato y buena calidad  técnica por su valor artístico y emociones sentida por el valor estético de estos artistas del lente hermosillenses.

Con el mismo criterio crítico anterior,  las imágenes paisajísticas más bellas son: “Cráter El Colorado”, (Sierra del Pinacate) y “Flor de bizna guilla y sahuaro”, por Guillermo Moreno Eguirrila; “Melancolía” y “Noche en el desierto”, de Pio Vázquez; ; “Dunas”,  por José Luis Tamayo;  “Atardecer sonorense”, de Ana Encinas y “San José de Bátuc”, de María García Morales, ex iglesia jesuita remodelada por los franciscanos en el siglo XVIII que quedó en fondo de la presa La Angostura e iconográfica en la plástica del Pitic por sus variadas reproducciones.

¡Qué hermosura de paisajes de playa, ríos, desierto y sierra nos obsequiaron estos magníficos fotógrafos profesionales con sensibilidad artística.

En ambas crujías de la  planta alta se montó la exposición “México en el mundo”, por la reconocida artista costumbrista, Nidia Tarazón, compuesta por 15 acuarelas en diferentes formatos e imaginería rural sonorense y de la etnia Cóncaac. Su curaduría fue por ella misma y museografía lineal sin dialogo museográfico entre ellas o el espectador por estar dividida en dos secciones.

Para la crítica de arte que postula los valores artístico y estético para obtener valor de museo, las obras más bellas de esta artista radicada en Hermosillo, son: “Sabiduría Seri”, “Freedom”, magnifica estampa de un caballo café;  “Esperando” y “El acecho”.

Las mejor logradas: “Mujer Rarámuri”, “Pensando en un sueño”, José, mi niño seri y  “A través del tiempo”, ex iglesia de San José de Batuc.

Si bien esta artista tiene buena trayectoria dentro y fuera del estado de Sonora, las imágenes presentadas tienen buen trazo con valor artístico, pero lo inconveniente, es la técnica a la acuarela, al no tener el difícil arte de la transparencia lograda yuxtaponiendo matices que sólo unos pocos la dominan en la región. La acuarela tradicional mexicana se ha desvirtuado en el Estado para ser una simple dilución de pigmentos en agua para rellenar volúmenes planos logrando ilustraciones más de diseño gráfico que verdaderas obras bellas de acuarelas.

Sin aliento y casi a gatas arribé a la cima de la loma de Guadalupe por la empinada escalinata de altos peraltes para contemplar la mini exposición “Escenas rítmicas”, por la Asociación Sonorense de Artes Plásticas en la ciudad del Pitic, exhibida en el portal arcado de la Casa de la Cultura, ex cárcel pública renovada.

¡Oh, decepción! Se exclamó al final del recorrido por las 12 pinturas de temática rural costumbrista sonorense.

Para la crítica de arte, las más bellas son: “Quimera”, por su hermoso rostro femenino de la creatividad de Janeth Valdez; “Lago de mis sueños”, por Martín Cuen Tánori; “Hombre posmoderno”, de Edgar Gil y “Huicholes en la costa”, por Luz María Ruso, por equilibrar el valor artístico con el valor estético. Mencioné  decepción porque el año pasado fue una exposición más extensa y de mejor calidad artística que ésta.

Frente a ella, en dialogo museográfico, una muestra de cerámica de barro manufacturada con técnica antigua color negro por el colectivo “Loma de Barro”, compuesto por estudiantes de la especialidad en Escultura de la Escuela de Artes Plásticas de la Universidad de Sonora. Lamentablemente, sólo la titulada “Cabello de Cristina”, por Daniel Carretas Chávez y “Fragmentos”, de Rosa Riego Ruiz, reúnen  el valor artístico artesanal con  estético.

Platicando con una expositora, indicó que las piezas de un jarro bellamente decorado, la cabeza de un venado con osamenta y un diminuto sahuaro fueron seleccionadas para representar al estado de Sonora en evento de cerámica en pueblo de Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, cuna de la cerámica tapatía.

¿Obtuvieron un premio?, Pregunté.

¡No! Contestó,  quedándose pensativa y en silencio porque solo el  pequeño jarrón era bello y el resto  técnicamente bien elaborados pero sin emanar belleza figurativa.

“Las Divas del Cine”, por Alejandro Fierro Soto, es una exhibición de retratos en blanco y negro dedicados a las actrices Miroslava Stern, María Félix, Dolores del Río, Silvia Pinal y Katy Jurado, montados en muros del restaurante Mexicanadas en el centro Histórico.

Según le lectura de sala, el concepto es dedicado, -A las divas de la época de oro del cine mexicano que alcanzaron por su belleza de rostro, carisma y calidad de actrices un prestigio nacional e internacional.  Las semblanzas del expositor, asegura ser  un abogado hermosillense de la Universidad de Sonora, omitiendo si es autodidacta o con estudios en algún taller de pintura y citando: “La mujer es mi  inspiración”.

Entre mesas ocupadas por comensales fue un poco incómodo molestarlos para leer las fichas técnicas, observarlas y deducir que las mejor logradas son las de Miroslava Stern y de María Félix basado en los valores artístico y estético

Las pinturas son ilustraciones con imágenes femeninas planas de diseño gráfico agradables a la vista  del público y personal del lugar.  Les faltó mejor dominio de la técnica del retrato e iluminación para expresar estos rostros tomados de viejas fotografías. Tampoco tienen expresado el carisma de estas actrices con poses ya antes pintadas por otras personas y no emanan  valor estético.

5. Gladys West's work on GPS 'would impact the world'
From: Heather Flewelling [heather_at_ifa.hawaii.edu]

““GPS has changed the lives of everyone forever,” James said. “There is not a segment of this global society—military, auto industry, cell phone industry, social media, parents, NASA, etc.—that does not utilize the Global Positioning System.”

The revelation that her 87-year-old sorority sister was one of the “Hidden Figures” behind GPS motivated James to share it with the world.

“I think her story is amazing,” James added.”

7. This is how science can fix its glaring gender inequality problem
From: JoEllen McBride [joellen.mcbride_at_gmail.com]

“The fix isn't just about bringing more women – and minorities – to the scientific workforce to increase diversity, she [Holly Witteman] says, it's also crucial to bring them to a system that is built to give them the same opportunities as men.

Including more people who have been historically underrepresented in certain fields – in this case, women and minorities in science – without then investing in mentoring and supporting them, will only backfire, she continues.”

          Comment on Cardinal Mary by charles cosimano      Cache   Translate Page      
So what else is news. And for our lede today, "Dog bites mailman." I am of the opinion that when the Martel book comes out there will be great sigh of, "We know." This is where I think the mistake is being made. You are operating under the assumption that there will be some great outcry of indignation over the revelations but the truth is that relatively few people will care and virtually none of them will be people in a position that actually matters. To non-Catholics it will just be a nice laugh seeing the Catholic Church with its hypocrisy hanging out. Nothing new there to look at. After, it does not matter to us which Cardinal is in bed with which other Cardinal. To Catholics? Well the ones who contribute blogs like this will be full of horror and indignation but will the average Catholic in the pew even care, or even hear about it? Will anything change? Will it even be noticed? In the end, will it even matter? Who cares? Who really cares?
          Comment on High Speed Rail Will Take People out of Electric Cars? by LazyReader      Cache   Translate Page      
High speed rail hasn't taken anyone out of cars. High speed rail has not reduced or curtailed auto or air travel usage. The European Union publishes data showing modal split between buses, cars, and trains going back to 1990. The numbers show that high-speed trains often cut into buses’ share of travel, but not cars. For the EU as a whole, rail’s share grew from 7.2% in 2000 to 7.7% in 2016, while auto’s share grew from 82.4 to 82.9% and buses ate the difference, dropping from 10.4 to 9.4%. If we assume that high-speed rail’s share of total rail travel has grown from 25% in 2006 to 33 % in 2016, that means high-speed trains only account for about 2.6 % of surface travel in Europe, or less than 2.4% when air travel is included. In short, European high-speed trains get most of their riders from the former low-speed trains they operated; and from buses. This is also true in Asia. In the US modal share; there is virtually no low-speed train riders and few bus riders for said high-speed trains to capture. Real transportation innovations are issues of convenience, cost or speed. Trains supposedly occupy this "Sweet spot" between 50-250 miles that regular transportation cant accommodate that maybe true in Dense old urban places like New York-Boston or Tokyo-Osaka. But A 200-mph train doesn’t do much good if it is inconvenient and costly. A 550-mph airplane is far more economical because it requires less infrastructure and is faster across distances, while a 60-mph car is both economical and convenient. New technologies will compete only if they are more economical and either faster or more convenient. Trains meet none of these criteria. Buses are cheaper, cars more convenient and planes are faster.

          Running Istio on Oracle Kubernetes Engine–the managed Kubernetes Cloud Service by Lucas Jellema      Cache   Translate Page      
image

In a recent post, I introduced the managed Oracle Cloud Service for Kubernetes, the Oracle Kubernetes Engine (OKE). A logical next step when working with Kubernetes in somewhat challenging situations, for example with microservice style architectures and deployments, is the use of Istio – to configure, monitor and manage the so called service mesh. Istio – https://istio.io – is brand new – not even Beta yet, although a first production release is foreseen for Q3 2018. It offers very attractive features, including:

  • intelligent routing of requests, including load balancing, A/B testing, content/condition based routing, blue/green release, canary release
  • resilicience – for example through circuit breaking and throttling
  • policy enforcement and access control
  • telemetry, monitoring, reporting

In this article, I will describe how I got started with Istio on the OKE cluster that I provisioned in the previous article. Note: there is really nothing very special about OKE for Istio: it is just another Kubernetes cluster, and Istio will do its thing. More interesting perhaps is the fact that I work on a Windows laptop and use a Vagrant/VirtualBox powered Ubuntu VM to do some of the OKE interaction, especially when commands and scripts are Linux only.

The steps I will describe:

  • install Istio client in the Linux VM
  • deploy Istio to the OKE Kubernetes Cluster
  • deploy the Bookinfo sample application with Sidecar Injection (the Envoy Sidecar is the proxy that is added to every Pod to handle all traffic into and out of the Pod; this is the magic that makes Istio work)
  • try out some typical Istio things – like traffic management and monitoring

The conclusion is that leveraging Istio on OKE is quite straightforward.

Install Istio Client in Linux VM

The first step with Istio, prior to deploying Istio to the K8S cluster, is the installation on your client machine of the istoctl client application and associated sources, including the Kubernetes yaml files required for the actual deployment. Note: I tried deployment of Istio using a Helm chart, but that did not work and it seems that Istio 0.7.x is not suitable for Helm (release 0.8 is supposed to be ready for Helm). Read the complete article here.

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


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

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

What did he say?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Does he believe this is a 'dream?'

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

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

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

           Comentario en Venezuela: epicentro geopolítico mundial. Por Ángel Guerra Cabrera por Tocororo       Cache   Translate Page      
George W. Bush, republicano, en 2002 preparó y organizó un golpe de Estado contra el comandante Chávez que fracasó. Desde entonces un golpe continuado, guerra económica, psicológica, sucia, y todo el vocabulario intervencionista, y cuando Maduro sustituye a Chávez cuando este falleció, ganó las elecciones del 14 de abril de 2013, una vez se cumplió el margen que la constitución proclama, y el derrotado Henrique Capriles , alias "caprichitos" , otro golpista en el 2002, que estuvo asediando la embajada cubana y también arrestando a Ramón Rodríguez Chacín, entonces Ministro de Interior y Justicia del gobierno de Chávez, pues "caprichitos" no reconoció su derrota una vez más, (antes muerta que sencilla) y llamó a la "arrechera" a "expresar la rabia" y la "frustración" . "Toda esa arrechera descárguela" declaró en una conferencia de prensa televisiva, el derrotado de los escuálidos afligidos. Hubo muchos muertos por esa violencia provocada, asesinaron a seis militantes socialistas que celebraban la victoria de Maduro y a un policía. Hubo 61 personas heridas. A una militante del PSUV la quemaron viva y no se salvaron del incendio los CDI (centros médicos)y los servicios públicos que brinda el Estado al pueblo venezolano. A Maduro no le han dado tregua desde el primer día de su proclamación como presidente de la Rep. Bolivariana de Venezuela, han ido con todo tipo de campañas de propaganda negra masiva, redes sociales, medios de comunicación y con Trump, republicano, las "fake-news" sin descanso, a todas horas, en EEUU, América latina y el planeta entero, creando una matriz informativa sobre Maduro como dictador, sanguinario, que mata de hambre al pueblo y tiene las cárceles llenas de presos políticos, es la viva imagen de lo que se llegó a crear sobre la figura de Arbenz en Guatemala, y de todas y cada una de las intervenciones e invasiones de estos forajidos imperialistas yankees, que siempre han utilizado previo a sus invasiones o golpes de Estado, una sofisticada propaganda de guerra a escala mundial para legitimar sus barbaridades. Ahora con Trump es la guerra humanitaria, con Libia fueron los bombardeos "humanitarios" En el caso de Venezuela, primero se la bloquea económicamente para crear el mayor caos en el mercado venezolano, luego vienen masivamente las "fake-news" que construye de la noche a la mañana un país de guión , que no existe, virtual, y como nueva modalidad la autoproclamación de presidente de la Rep. de Venezuela después de una manifestación en una Pza. se auto titula “presidente” y acto seguido EEUU y sus secuaces del cartel limeño, los países europeos, no todos, reconocen a un presidente inexistente, de un país inexistente, con ejercito inexistente y por último, con el caos económico y social y político y sobre todo la propaganda negra, crear una crisis humanitaria inexistente, es decir, un escenario de guiñol, todo una fabula, nada existe. Detrás de esa crisis humanitaria viene la ayuda humanitaria y aquí es donde está el casus belli, que tiene como objeto crear una alteración ciudadana o sublevación en busca de los alimentos y medicamentos que jocosamente impide esa guerra económica y el bloqueo y embargos y el descaro personificado. Ya han comenzado anunciando la llegada de algún avión a Caracas, un silfido funcionario de Pto. Rico, haciendo las carcajadas del los venezolanos patriotas, con su avión lleno de pertrechos "humanitarios" , nunca llegó tampoco, también estaban preparando por un puente que hace de frontera en el estado de Táchira, pensando que la población va a romper las barreras en busca de comida que les trae las Naciones Unidas, que por cierto ha declarado que no enviará con tal ningún convoy de ayuda humanitaria para proteger al pueblo hambriento, claro que el guion hollywoodiense se trata de marines dando barritas de chocolate a los niños famélicos, por cierto este tema lo anunció en sus comentarios -tertulias, un "autotitulado" de todo lo que haga falta, también pareciera reportero de Radio Martí de la "histórica" ciudad de Miami, que se hace llamar el Tony, otros le llaman el chino, algunos que se proclaman amigos, le llaman cariñosamente, chinito pillo, (la verdad que no lo entiendo), la realidad es algo diferente, tiene enfoque la cosa, pero hay algo curioso, el cómico este que se preocupa por LPI y por el supuesto "silencio" de comentaristas como dice el avezado "reportero de guerra" venido del frio, algo así como aquel libro de "El espía venido del frío" que no sé si ha firmado algún contrato de programación para la isla con un joven blog por el socialismo y la revolución, porque el achinao este ya en su delirio transitorio, después de un cursillo de redacción y estrategia comunicativa dirigido por Tomas Regalado, que Tomas,?, un Château Mouton-Rothschild, (ni en sueños, pero quedaba bien) y así con el chiste este diario fue cayendo en gracia el chinito este en su exilio de Miami como dirigente de Alpha 66, así mismo lo ha confesado a sus oyentes hace bien poco, porque no era un simple militante,!!! dejando con la boca abierta a sus "incordiantes" amigos, es que por autotitularse que no quede además si lo hace un muchachito como Guaidito, el de marras no va a ser menos. Pues el mentado chinito que a este paso se va a autotitular "chinatow" informa masivamente a la "cautiva" y "sufrida" isla en su enlace blogero, de todos los movimientos de la ofensiva contrarrevolucionaria contra la triada tiránica de Venezuela, Nicaragua y por ultimo Cuba, que es de donde procede por nacimiento dicho cara manzana, "car’appel" en tierras anglosajonas. Para no hacer largo el cuento, dejó a sus lectores ese hilo de "suspense del día anterior" a sus lectores del joven blog diciendo que mañana se espera la llegada de los primeros convoyes de “ayuda humanitaria” a Venezuela, ohhhhh y con eso Maduro tiene los días contados, (si, como mínimo hasta el año 2025) quizás haya reelección, no se sabe todavía, es algo que el pueblo deberá decidir, como todo. Todavía las risas suenan por la presumida incursión humanitaria que no se realizó , es que con tantas "fake news" se creen el cuento de ellos mismos, y bueno así todo con el cómico quiero y no puedo este. En otro comentario hablaré sobre sus comentarios sobre los grillos, y su primicia que lanzó al ruedo "The Mystery of the Havana Syndrome (down)" apoteósico aquello.

          EotM: Reggie Watts on Creating Virtual Reality and How it Increases Empathy, and on Keeping His Night Job       Cache   Translate Page      
Three-time Employee of the Month winner, Reggie Watts, returns to discuss his latest, greatest project Runnin’, which expands the cathartically original, prolific, and mischievously wry comedian, musician, and dancer’s oeuvre. Catie Lazarus spoke with Watts about burn out, why he can’t quit his night job, and his recent foray into VR with Runnin’, which premiered at Sundance. The Film Festival is known for launching acting and directing careers, and given the breadth of VR experiences on display as part of their New Fontiers Exhibits, Sundance is proving equally deft at debuting inventive interactive and immersive technology. Watts teamed up with the remarkable producer and director Kira Benzing, and the delightful composer John Tejada, so that you can strap on the clunky goggles and dance like no one is watching. We spoke about the process of creating a virtual dance party - the first of its kind - and how Watts thinks it will enhance empathy. Runnin’ certainly offers the escapist fun of tripping without a hangover, and will delight fans of all ages.

          Is There Any Chance Kirk Cox Could Become Governor?      Cache   Translate Page      
Constitutional questions answered by Wake Forest professor John Dinan.

Since some readers seem curious about whether “the people” have any recourse during the current political chaos rocking the capital of the Commonwealth, we put the question to John Dinan, a professor in the department of politics and international studies at Wake Forest University. He is an expert on the Virginia Constitution.

Style Weekly: Since people voted for a Democrat governor, would they have any recourse should Republican Kirk Cox somehow ascend to the job?

John Dinan: Anyone who succeeds to the office of governor in the middle of a term would serve out the remainder of the unexpired term and would also be eligible to run for and serve another term as governor. There is not a procedure by which someone assuming the office of governor midterm could be recalled or removed by voters, aside from the existing impeachment and unable-to-discharge-the duties-of-the-office procedures of the constitution.

Now, the chances of Kirk Cox actually assuming the office of governor during this term are extremely low, if not zero. There are virtually no realistic scenarios in which Democratic officials would allow the governorship to be turned over to a Republican prior to the 2021 election.

Regarding possible impeachment, you’ve noted online that there are two paths for removing a governor from office:

First, the Virginia Constitution allows for impeachment in cases of “malfeasance in office, corruption, neglect of duty, or other high crime or misdemeanor.” Similar to the process in place at the national level, it takes a majority vote in the House to impeach an official and a two-thirds vote in the Senate for conviction and removal from office. Second, in a provision that roughly tracks the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and was intended to apply to cases of physical or mental disability, a governor can be deemed “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” as determined either by the attorney general, Senate president pro tem, and House speaker acting together or by a majority vote of all members of the legislature. Such a determination triggers a process that ultimately requires a three-fourths vote in the house and senate to remove a governor on the ground of inability to discharge the powers and duties of the office.

Our question is who would oversee any impeachment trial in the Senate?

The constitution does not specify who presides over an impeachment trial in the Senate. And I am not aware of any statutes that answer this question, though this may be addressed in statute law. The constitution merely states that the House shall be responsible for deciding to impeach an official, and it is done by majority vote, and that the Senate shall be responsible for holding an impeachment trial for that official, and it shall take a two-thirds vote of senators present to convict and remove an official who is impeached by the House.

          Spring exhibitions at the ICA address social conditions through art made by women      Cache   Translate Page      

Avatars, representations of blackness, the Shaker community, Alice Coltrane's jazz and income-based fashion. These are just a few themes explored in the spring exhibitions at the Institute for Contemporary Art, pairing work by Los Angeles-based Cauleen Smith, who was trained in film, with art by Belgrade, Yugoslavia-born Irene Haiduk, who now lives in New York City, and artwork by Martine Syms, another LA artist.

In the first-floor gallery, Smith's multidisciplinary "Give It or Leave It" combines many things, including multichannel video, ready-made objects like shag carpet and disco balls, custom-designed wallpaper, and sound that explore the stories of musician Alice Coltrane, photos from 1966 by Billy Ray at the Watts Towers, Noah Purifoy's desert assemblages, and Rebecca Cox Jackson and the Shaker community. It's a mash-up of histories: Coltrane, Ray and Noah all lived in the 20th and 21st centuries, while Jackson lived in the 19th.

However, Smith sees a connecting thread between these disparate narratives.

"They all sort of created generous spaces in a really different way," she says.

Similarly, she hopes that each figure acts as a model for visitors because, "[they are] something that I think people need to think about now instead of everybody thinking about their own little piece of pie. … Maybe if we look at all these models and people of the past who managed to enact radical generosity, we can learn from that."

Smith's exhibition opened in Philadelphia, but there are a few changes for the Richmond iteration because of the differences in architecture. For example, Richmond's venue offers two new installations of colored film gels on the windows to reflect swaths of glowing color either onto guests, who can relax in lawn chairs inside the gallery, or outside onto the street.

Chief curator Stephanie Smith says these opportunities for new works are "an essential part of our understanding of our work: to be an institute for contemporary art and to create opportunities to work with artists to help bring their creative visions to new life here at the ICA."

While the institute will likely not be screening any of Smith's films, adjunct assistant curator of film Enjoli Moon explains that "the film program will overlap with the overall theme that you can kind of tie into all three galleries, which is this idea of women creating ideas and possibilities for the future." Up next is a screening of the 2018 documentary "Black Mother."

On the second floor, artist Haiduk's installation is adjacent to Syms' "Shame Space" from 2018. Together they compose the inaugural "Dialogues," a commissioned series like the institute's "Provocations."

Haiduk presents "Yugoexport," an ongoing artwork and corporation modeled after Jugoexport — they sound the same — a now-defunct Yugoslavian manufacturer. For "Yugoexport," the institute has hired attendants to sell shoes for men and women designed by Haiduk, manufactured in Belgrade, and modeled after ergonomic shoes previously worn by female workers in Yugoslavia during the 1960s. Staff members have each been given a pair to wear. The price for the black lace-up shoes varies and is determined by consumers' income levels, which the buyer decides.

Chief curator Stephanie Smith explains that the installation is divided into two zones: a sculpture installation and a conceptual retail store flanked by infinity mirrors.

In contrast, artist Martine Syms explores people's relationships to artificial intelligence and virtual avatars. Think, for example, of the iPhone's virtual assistant, Siri—through video, installation and performance.
"[Syms], in her work, has been dedicated to the ways in which blackness has been integral to U.S. culture through fields like film, cinema and entertainment," explains assistant curator Amber Esseiva. "Recently she's turned her attention to technology and artificial intelligence and telecommunication tools: cellphones, the internet and social media platforms we engage with every day."

By writing her own code, Syms created an avatar named Mythiccbeing that takes its model from contemporary artist Adrian Piper's male alter ego, the Mythic Being, which Piper began in 1973. Visitors can speak with Syms's avatar through a chat bot that is programmed to sound like the artist. The bot asks questions, like "How do I cultivate joy? Will I ever stop being broke?" and visitors can then send short instructions to the bot. The sound, text and imagery on the film change based on what visitors' text to it.

Esseiva gives context to these three exhibitions, maintaining that all address social conditions "by proposing ways of engaging with the future, proposing how we can collaborate with one another, how we can surround ourselves with objects, with technologies, with things that are ubiquitous to our living in the world that are being reimagined through works of art that are inspiring and charged with new possibilities and proposals for the future made by women."

"Cauleen Smith: Give It or Leave It" is open through May 5 and "Dialogues: Irena Haiduk and Martine Syms" is open through May 12. For information, visit icavcu.org.

"Re: dgt on RV Thoughts" by Young Thinker - 2.9.19

Dear dgt and Young Thinker,

I appreciate your courage in stating your opinions knowing they might go against the IDC current so to speak.

In my vision of New Earth, EVERYONE'S opinion is valued and carefully considered because no one knows EVERYTHING.

But we're still dusting off the remnants of the old 3D, so some old habits still linger: Judging what you don't agree with. Condemning someone who doesn't think like you, etc. It's just dust. All that will soon be gone.

For the record, I think Sierra has done a wonderful job of keeping everyone current on Q for Q-vians. I happen to know Sierra is a lovely, kind, generous, brilliant person. So Bravo, Sierra. You rock, my friend. Thank you for your service to the Light.

I don't happen to be a Q-vian. There's only so many BOOMS that go BUST I can take and then I've had it with BOOMS. But that doesn't mean Q isn't incredibly important and helpful in "waking up" those who still believe in this illuminati-hologram, although how anyone still could is beyond me.

I agree with you, dgt. The most thrilling part of the new congress is the historic number of women—127. 25 women in the Senate and 105 women in the House. Wonderful!

I was elated on election day when they were voted in. And I agree. They are smart, diverse, enthusiastic. In the interviews I've listened to, everyone of the new congresswomen mentioned the crippling cost of Health Care for their constituents, so that tells me they're hearing the people they represent.

As a woman, I can honestly say I'm fed up with all the old men in government who have been there for decades and done absolutely nothing except pick up a paycheck.

The fact that Mitch McConnell has been a Senator for 35 years defies belief. The man hasn't written or passed one single piece of legislation in his entire political career. Not one. Why does Kentucky keep voting him in? Or DO Kentuckians keep voting him in?

But then I remember this is a cabal-owned, Koch-brother-owned government, except for that maverick, President Trump, who is a live wire that drives everyone crazy: Those who are against him as well as those who are for him.

It's my belief that President Trump is carrying burdens we can only guess at.

Do I think President Trump is a wonderful, graceful, poetic POTUS like a JFK, Jr. No, I don't. But do I think he has a virtually impossible job and is doing the best he can? Yes I do, and for that, I'm grateful to President Trump. Victory to the Light.

My point is I can agree with some of what each of you has written, Sierra, dgt and Young Thinker, and I can hold my differing opinions on other points, but I'm happy to hear what you think. I always learn something.

What I want to ask you both is to please keep posting. I'm fascinated by what EVERYONE here thinks.

For better or worse, for the endless false dates and predictions of the RV, for all the bickering back and forth, Patrick has created a place of community. As we keep trudging the RV, GCR, GESARA path, it's encouraging to know we're not alone on it.

All ideas welcome, far as I'm concerned.

Unceasing blessings and Light to all,
xo, Kat

          Comment on The Pilot Turned Back: Engine Failure Leads to Fatal Crash by Rudy Jakma      Cache   Translate Page      
Chip, yes I agree with you. Somehow, somewhere it seems that this pilot somehow got "tunnel vision", a fixation on one aspect of his problem. Was it vapout lock? Maybe. We just don't know what went on in the Bonanza during the last few minutes of his flight. Was he distracted by his passenger? We will never know. Was he experienced on this type of aircraft? That can be ascertained. One thing is for certain: Once the human brain goes into a panic, reason will be the first victim. In an aircraft this may be manifested by a fixation on one aspect of the problem and losing the ability to finding a solution by reasoning it out. Many years ago, actually I think it was in 1969, I was working as a commercial pilot. There were virtually no jobs for pilots. Banner towing was a way to keep the licence and earn a bit in the process. In the period between roughly 1955 and 1975 this was still good business. I did about 3700 hours flying advertsiing banners, mainly behind Piper Super Cubs but we also used C172 and other types. One company even used a Dornier Do28, a twin with STOL capacity. My first employer was called Westdeutsche Luftwerbung Theodor Wuellenkemper KG. I believe it still exists as a cargo operator, now called "WDL Flugdienst". I got the job in an unusual way: After getting my CPL - basic, no IF nor ME ratings - I went to Hilversum where my aviation career had started. It was 1969, Easter and that always attracted a lot of air advertising activities. There were two companies based there: One called Skylight, the other Luchtreclame Nederland, later Reclamair. In fact it was actually the start of the Dutch air charter comapny Martinair. Reclamair was very busy that Easter weekend, they had even rented aircraft from other companies. In those days it was not unusual to have 20 or more banner towers in the air. The chief pilot, whom I knew well, told me that he was not running a flying school. No work for a novice CPL. But Reclamair had hired a few Super Cubs from WDL and the boss, Herr Wuellenkemper himself, was there to supervise his pilots. I approached him, he told me that he needed pilots. So a weeklater I drove to Essen-Muelheim where they were based. In Germany there had just been a change in the law that required that first officers working for an airline would need an ATPL. Which forced many German pilots to ask for a furlough and go back to school. Many pilots who had a job flying light twins and who did have an ATPL filled their positions, it caused a surge for the few better jobs, leaving the bottom ranks: banner towing, sightseeing, photo flying, vacant. Which, temporarily, opened those positions to be filled by Dutch and Norwegian pilots. But even applying for one of those jobs I was promptly sent away by the chief pilot there, a Herr Pfannkuch. But just as I was driving out of the gate he ran after me and called me back. They had just let one pilot go and I could start. Immediately. Which in those days meant getting a German CPL with aero tow rating ("including in-flight object pick-up") and I did two seasons there. The pay was miserable: Basic pay 300 Deutsche Mark per month, plus DM 3 per flying hour. We often did more than 40 hour per week, so weather permitting we could earn DM 1500 a month. Gross. Where is this going? I hear you ask. Well, soon I was promoted to "Verbandsfuehrer" or formation leader. Which meant a basic pay of DM 500 a month and DM 5 per flying hour. Nearly all flights were three aircraft and often there were 21 Pipers in the air, every day except Sundays. We were paid on the strength of a barogram, carried in the leader's Super Cub. After flight, we had to bring it to the "Luftaufsicht", this was not ATC because most of the guys in the control tower spoke no English. He would give ADVISORY instructions "Landen sie nach eigenem Ermessen" or "land at your own discretion". Anyway, the barograph would be opened, the barogram checked, stamped and signed after which a new roll would be entered, the ink replenished and the barograph sealed. Some of the pilots were Norwegian. One had been a flying instructor and had been involved in a very nasty accident when his pupil, a sturdy fellow, froze at the controls during a spinning exercise. The instructor was not able to overpower him and they crashed. I am not sure if the student survived, but the instructor still bore the scars of extensive facial reconstruction. He had recovered and went back to flying. One of the very few jobs available was in Germany with the WDL. He was in my formation when one day he reported engine trouble. We were not in controlled airspace and communicated using a VHF frequency assigned to our company. He reported fuel starvation. The aim was to stay the maximum time up in the air. In order to do that, we took off on one tank, then switched to the other until it ran dry. Then switch back to the still nearly full tank and finish the mission. Somehow, this pilot got confused. His body had recovered from the crash, his nerves had not. We could see him losing height, then the engine would pick up again. Between us and a nearby airfield was a military area where they were shooting with live grenades. I called the military, asked them to suspend their artillery to allow an aircraft in distress to pass through. I told the pilot to drop the banner and we crossed the firing area. He landed safely. I called the company. The chief pilot arrived soon after in another aircraft with a relief pilot. The banner was reovered by sending a car. The cause was soon established: after running one tank dry, he (I won't betray him by giving his name) switched first, correctly, to the full tank. But then, for some unexplained reason, back to the dry one. This he did repeatedly until he got totally confused. This man had no doubt been a fine pilot. He had suffered an awful accident but had the guts to try and get back flying. Before the chief pilot's arrival I gave him a detailed briefing on the tank selector operation. He calmed down and I reckoned that the best course of action would be to allow him to complete the flight. The chief pilot thought otherwise, put him in the passenger seat and the relief pilot took over. This was of course an extreme example, but it does show how panic can take over and prevent the affected brain to function rationally. This pilot was sent home. I don't know if he ever flew again. But there is a fine twist here: This was a large operation for it's kind of business. Up to 21 aircraft in the sky at any given time, 6 days a week, meant an equal number of pilots. I was at the time the only Dutchman, there were some 6 Norwegians. In the weekend we would on occasion visit a local disco. Not often, we simply could not afford it, not on our salary. But we met a few girls there and the Norwegian who was sent home has befriended a nurse there. She joined our group and we all chatted and danced. When I saw her again, of course she wanted to know where her friend was. She had not seen nor heard from him for several weeks. I had to explain what had happened. Well, we are already more than 48 years married. She is Irish, we live near Dublin.

          Nintendo Switch Online NES Titles For February Are Super Mario Bros. 2 And Kirby's Adventure      Cache   Translate Page      

Nintendo has revealed the two NES titles coming to Nintendo Switch Online this month, adding to their library of classics accessible from the Switch app. This month, players can download Super Mario Bros. 2 and Kirby's Adventure, two major games for some of Nintendo's most iconic series starting on February 13.

Click here to watch embedded media

For the second month in a row, Japan is getting three games while other regions only get two, with Japan also getting a sumo title. For the first few months of the service, Nintendo had put out three games a month, but seems to be in a pattern of only doing so for the Japanese region at this point. It hearkens back to Nintendo's regional releases for the Wii Virtual Console where Japan would get a number of releases that either came months later or not at all to America.

Super Mario Bros. 2 was originally a licensed platformer named Doki Doki Panic. Fearing that the real Super Mario Bros. 2 was too hard for American fans, Nintendo reshaped Doki Doki Panic into a Mario sequel, making for an extremely strange sequel. To avoid confusion, fans either call this release Super Mario USA or refer to the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2 as Lost Levels, based on its name from Super Mario All-Stars.

Kirby's Adventure is commonly considered the game that really launched the series. It gave the (now) pink puffball an enemy absorption mechanic that defined most of his games from then on out. The story has Kirby trying to retrieve pieces of the Dream Rod broken up by King DeDeDe and might be one of the first games I can recall with a twist ending.

Both games will be available on February 13 as part of the Switch paid online service.

Mathematically, a 529 is an inferior vehicle from a terminal wealth standpoint in nearly every instance.


Can you explain this statement.



We are assuming the dollars will be used for education, right? The question is simply which vehicle is mathematically better for that.


If we limit it to funding college education, specifically, then certainly it's the best. But we must remember that money is fungible, and funding college education is not the only financial goal for most of us; retirement is usually the biggest one. It doesn't matter how college expenses are funded, whether from a 529, a 457, taxable, loans to be repaid at a later date from a retirement account, etc.; what matters to most of us is how we can do so and have the highest after-tax terminal wealth at the end of the day.



There's is virtually no realistic situation I've seen where a 529 was superior in building terminal wealth as compared to tax-deferred or Roth accounts. That being said, it's clearly superior to a taxable account IF the funds are indeed used for college expenses (and that is far from a slam dunk; I know from witnessing this firsthand with no fewer than six family members in the last several years).



If one has already maxed out their contributions to other tax-advantaged accounts and has a high degree of certainty that they will be able to use 529 funds to pay for college expenses, then it's perfectly fine. But giving up space in other tax-advantaged accounts to fund a 529 rarely makes sense. I think that many do it because it just makes them feel good about doing something specifically 'designated' for their children, not because they believe it will maximize their terminal wealth.



The wealth transfer argument is potentially a good one, but keep in mind that those most interested in achieving it are probably already maxing out all tax-advantaged space anyway. And again, the real problem with this is whether the future generations will actually attend a university and need those funds; despite being a professor myself, I'm not as confident as many here that higher ed as we know it will still be around decades from now.

          Re: Immigration Dispute Leads Feds to Withhold $2 Million in Grants From Vermont Police      Cache   Translate Page      
It is truly astonishing how far to the right today's Democrats and so-called "progressives" have gone on the issue of immigration. In terms of actual policy they support, they are virtually indistinguishable from the Koch Brothers; Chamber of Commerce; and corporatist GOP, such as former Senator Spencer Abraham.

In the mid 1990's, President Clinton's Bipartisan Commission on Immigration Reform, led by African-American, Democratic Congresswoman and civil rights icon Barbara Jordan, issued recommendations. Including chain migration reform; elimination of the diversity visa lottery; reduction of legal immigration from the 1980's & 1990's average of 750,000 per year down to 550,000 per year; and stronger enforcement versus illegal immigration (including mandatory E-verify). The Commission had analyzed economic trends, including impact on labor, from NAFTA; increasing automation; and Reagan-era weakening of labor unions. In addition to labor groups, other traditional Democratic Party constituencies such as pro-environment groups supported the legislation Congress drafted based on the Jordan Commission. This was considered commonsense reform and supported by a majority of Democrats and the mainstream media. Unfortunately, in 1996, just before Congress was widely expected to pass the legislation, Ms. Jordan died; and Bill Clinton suddenly yanked his support. Something about an alleged quid pro quo b/c of illegal campaign financing to DNC from the Chinese (via John Huang); and b/c of corporate lobbying.

Now, for the last 2 years, Trump has supported all Jordan Commission recommendations and new legislation based on it (RAISE Act; efforts by Senator Grassley; Representative Goodlatte, etc) But Democrats instead oppose everything. Whether they realize it or not, Dems have completely abandoned labor and environment to carry water for Koch Brothers on this issue. Real shame b/c Trump Admin weakening some other rules with environment.

          Betting on Week 1 of the AAF is a once in a lifetime opportunity — here are our best bets for the new league      Cache   Translate Page      

San Antonio CommandersAAF

  • The Alliance of American Football kicks off play this Saturday.
  • The league sports eight teams competing in a 10-week season, with teams made up of former pros and college standouts.
  • While little is known about the strengths and weaknesses of any teams, as they have yet to play a real game, bettors can still

This weekend the Alliance of American Football kicks off its first week of existence, providing football to fans eager to watch, analyze, and of course bet on their favorite sport.

While the public now knows the rules, rosters, and coaching staffs of each team in the new league, their quality is still unknown, and viewers won't be able to get a real sense of who's good and who's not until the games this weekend, making this Saturday a unique opportunity for gamblers.

Sports bettors are usually attempting to outsmart the books and their fellow bettor to predict the future. No matter how well you think you know football, the sportsbook will always be better informed, making finding an edge in NFL near-impossible for casual bettors.

But the AAF presents a wholly different proposition to bettors this weekend — this is mostly a football version of roulette, and some of the bookmakers in Las Vegas are admitting as much.

Jay Kornegay, VP of Race and Sports Operations at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, described booking the AAF before a game had been played as "A little bit of a crapshoot," to Vegas Stats & Information Network on Friday.

Nobody knows anything about how these teams play beyond the few players we are familiar with from their NFL or college days. The sport will still be football, and we can even bet on it, but rather than betting the Patriots, Rams, Eagles, or Steelers, we can bet on Mystery Team A or Mystery Team B — in this case, the Orlando Apollos or Atlanta Legends.

For serious sports bettors, this is an excellent opportunity to look for an edge over the books if you think you can find one. Read up and watch all the film you can find, and maybe you can crack the code before Las Vegas does and make some money. I wish you luck!

I think this is too fun an opportunity to waste on studying. It's a crapshoot! I love shooting craps! Except for this time the dice I'm throwing are eight teams with fun names that will play by the rules of football that I know very well, instead of the rules of craps, which still confuse me every time I step up to a table.

Below are our best bets for Week 1 of the AAF season.

Orlando Apollos (-4.5) over Atlanta Legends

AAF

With so little information known about any of the teams playing this weekend, laying a 4.5-point favorite is admittedly, a bit ridiculous — why not take the points that are virtually free?

First, I do not want to bet against Apollos head coach Steve Spurrier, who, at 73 years old, can still probably coach the heck out of a football game.

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Legends were supposed to be led by Brad Childress, but the former Vikings coach abruptly left the team in January, with Kevin Coyle taking over the role.

Again, it's insane not to take the points in this spot, but this entire endeavor of betting on a brand new football league is somewhat insane, to begin with, so why not lean in?



San Antonio Commanders (-2.5) over San Diego Fleet

AAF

While the Legends were cut short by the premature departure of Brad Childress, the San Diego Fleet lost quarterback Josh Johnson, who was likely to be one of the most talented quarterbacks in the league, to the NFL after he took over for the Redskins amid a slew of injuries.

With the Fleet working to replace the most critical position on the field, I'm backing the San Antonio Commanders to win in their debut.



Memphis Express (+3) over Birmingham Iron

AAF

Christian Hackenberg is back playing meaningful football.

After flaming out in the NFL, Hackenberg has found a home with the Memphis Express, leading to one of the most intriguing storylines the league has to offer — could the AAF offer players an opportunity to prove they're still NFL-ready?

Both Hackenberg and Iron running back Trent Richardson will likely be looking to do so, but in this game, we're taking the points.

There's is virtually no realistic situation I've seen where a 529 was superior in building terminal wealth as compared to tax-deferred or Roth accounts.


So, you went from inferior to not superior, i guess that is an improvement.



Virtually no realistic scenario? Really? I think you need a better imagination here, willthrill :happy



How about someone (like myself, and millions of others), who lives in a state that gives a tax break for 529 contributions, but not for Roth IRA, and actually spends money funding some of their kids college education. I imagine there are many parents that fit into that category, surely enough to eclipse the "virtually no" threshold. It is simply a fact that for those people a 529 is indeed superior mathematically than a Roth IRA. I have to admit, i did contribute to both most years, because they are both better than a taxable account.


Fair enough, although it should be pointed out that funds in other tax-advantaged accounts do not count against you in determining financial aid, but 529 assets do.



So are you arguing that someone like yourself should forego Roth IRA contributions in lieu of 529 contributions?


marcopolo wrote:

Can you explain mathematically how the Roth is superior, without bringing in speculative scenarios about college aid, and kid not going to school, etc that can't be quantified.



By the way, I thought we were talking mathematical objective analysis, right? You seem to have gone back to a lot of hand waving about speculative outcome of paying or not paying for college, as others have pointed out that is a circular argument that could go on forever.


Just because a risk cannot be quantified does not mean that it is irrelevant and can or should be ignored. The risk of your child not attending college at all, or attending but not graduating, is far higher than many parents believe. Even among 'smart' kids, I've seen many that opted for either of these scenarios for a variety of reasons. The other risk is that your kid will get a free ride and not need college funding. Are those risks worth the state tax benefit on 529 contributions, the only potential one over a Roth IRA? Perhaps you believe so, but I definitely do not.

The big ride came late in the show, when 19-year-old Stetson Wright matched moves with United Pro Rodeo’s Happy Days for 89 points to tie for the bull riding lead with Aaron Williams, who rode last weekend. Both men are virtual locks to make the championship round, which takes place next Friday, Feb. 15, at Foster Communications Coliseum. “All they told me about my bull was that he was mean,” said Wright, the third son of two-time world champion saddle bronc rider Cody Wright. “He felt great. He hipped himself, and after I got sat back down, he felt really good and turned into my hand.” Oftentimes, animals leaving the chute will bang on the metal post, and that could foul the rider as he tries to make the moves necessary for high scores. Obviously, Wright recovered. But that’s nothing new for the family, which boasts of a host of top-rated saddle bronc riders. Cody Wright led the way, earning his first gold buckle in 2008, then following it in 2010. Jesse Wright followed with... Continue Reading

          TechEd for Novices, 2012 Edition      Cache   Translate Page      

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

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

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

Session Types

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

Birds of a Feather (BOF)

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

Breakout Session

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

Hands-on Lab

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

Instructor Led Lab/Workshop

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

Interactive Theater

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

Lunch Session

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

Building Your Schedule

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

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

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

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

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

Deciding on your sessions

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

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

Session Codes

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

The session code has the following format:

AAALLL[R][-SSS]

where

AAA: Technical Track (abbreviated)

LLL: Technical Level

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

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

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

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

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

The technical level is broken down by difficulty and is:

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

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

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

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

Creating your calendar

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

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

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

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

Communications Network (CommNet)

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

CommNet gives you key logistical information about the conference:

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

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

Wireless Internet Access

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

To be safe, follow the following steps:

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

myTechEd

myTechEdLogo[1]

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

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

Dealing with the Information Overload

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

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

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

The Alpina V8 Roadster was the final iteration of the small-scale Z8 sports car inspired by the 507 of the late 1950s. This model was more grand touring-oriented than its sports car predecessor, coming with a 5-speed BMW Steptronic automatic transmission and a softer suspension, and the interior was redone as well, using softer Nappa leather. While the engine power was reduced to 375 hp, torque rose to 383 lb-ft, being available at a much lower RPM for a more relaxed ride.

With most units bound for the United States (444 units and Alpina's first car officially sold there) and Japan (between 70 and 90 units), this car is extremely rare outside these markets.

          La provincia concretó una inédita reparación a siete víctimas de delitos económicos      Cache   Translate Page      

En un hecho inédito en la provincia de Santa Fe, siete personas que habían sido estafadas por una misma banda delictiva recibieron una reparación económica por un total de 1.256.000 pesos. La devolución se concretó este viernes en la sede de la gobernación en Rosario, ciudad donde se produjeron los secuestros virtuales. El acto de reparación estuvo encabezado por el secretario de Gestión Pública, Matías Figueroa Escauriza; y por el fiscal general Jorge Baclini.

Los fondos surgieron del remate de los autos incautados a la banda criminal, que se concretó en octubre del año pasado a través de la Agencia de Bienes Decomisados del Ministerio de Justicia y Derechos Humanos, y el próximo 7 de marzo se llevará a cabo una segunda subasta pública en Santa Fe.

Al respecto, Figueroa Escauriza sostuvo que “la decisión política es efectuar este tipo de reparaciones en casos de delitos económicos y en el marco de causas penales en las que haya secuestro de bienes”. 

“Este era un paso muy importante que queríamos dar, algo histórico, ya que nunca en la provincia se les habían sacado bienes a las bandas, se los había vendido y con lo producido rápidamente las víctimas habían recibido dinero”, agregó Figueroa Escauriza y sostuvo que “si bien los miembros de la organización fueron condenados, para sus víctimas la reparación del daño fue en gran parte una sorpresa. No creían que esto podía llegar a suceder y la verdad es que nos pone contentos porque eran personas que rondaban los 80 años, los llamaban durante la madrugada y les quitaban quizás sus ahorros, los vulneraban”.

LOS REMATES

Sólo con el remate realizados en octubre de 2018, la provincia recaudó más de cuatro millones de pesos. Además de lo que se destinó a esta reparación económica, se invirtió otro millón de pesos en políticas sociales, que incluyeron la adquisición de tablets e insumos para establecimientos deportivos, 18 proyectores y equipos de sonido para salones de actos de escuelas primarias y secundarias.

“Queda un remanente al resguardo por si judicialmente hay que devolver el valor de algún vehículo dado que las causas penales siguen y si la sentencia no es condenatorio debemos reponer su valor”, aclaró el funcionario.

Por su parte, el fiscal Baclini señaló que “las víctimas del delito fueron en su mayoría adultos mayores que, tras ser contactados telefónicamente, dejaron dinero en la vía pública en la creencia de que sus familiares habían sido secuestrados”.

“Este es un procedimiento muy nuevo, que se está articulando y aceitando. Para nosotros es muy satisfactorio que se hayan podido recuperar bienes, luego venderlos a través de la Agencia del Poder Ejecutivo y devolverle una parte del dinero a las víctimas, que se iban un poco incrédulas”, concluyó.

BOSTON (AP) — The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston has received a $1.5 million gift from Raytheon to help commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Kennedy famously challenged the nation in 1961 to land a man on the moon by the end of that decade. Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took the first steps on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969. The JFK library plans a yearlong celebration of the Apollo program, featuring a "virtual replica" of the Saturn V rocket and a downloadable app for users to experience their own missions through augmented reality.

Can you explain this statement.



We are assuming the dollars will be used for education, right? The question is simply which vehicle is mathematically better for that.


There's is virtually no realistic situation I've seen where a 529 was superior in building terminal wealth as compared to tax-deferred or Roth accounts.


So, you went from inferior to not superior, i guess that is an improvement.



Virtually no realistic scenario? Really? I think you need a better imagination here, willthrill :happy



How about someone (like myself, and millions of others), who lives in a state that gives a tax break for 529 contributions, but not for Roth IRA, and actually spends money funding some of their kids college education. I imagine there are many parents that fit into that category, surely enough to eclipse the "virtually no" threshold. It is simply a fact that for those people a 529 is indeed superior mathematically than a Roth IRA. I have to admit, i did contribute to both most years, because they are both better than a taxable account.


Fair enough, although it should be pointed out that funds in other tax-advantaged accounts do not count against you in determining financial aid, but 529 assets do.



So are you arguing that someone like yourself should make 529 contributions before Roth IRA contributions are maxed out?


marcopolo wrote:

Can you explain mathematically how the Roth is superior, without bringing in speculative scenarios about college aid, and kid not going to school, etc that can't be quantified.



By the way, I thought we were talking mathematical objective analysis, right? You seem to have gone back to a lot of hand waving about speculative outcome of paying or not paying for college, as others have pointed out that is a circular argument that could go on forever.


Just because a risk cannot be quantified does not mean that it is irrelevant and can or should be ignored. The risk of your child not attending college at all, or attending but not graduating, is far higher than many parents believe. Even among 'smart' kids, I've seen many that opted for either of these scenarios for a variety of reasons. The other risk is that your kid will get a free ride and not need college funding. Are those combined risks worth the state tax benefit on 529 contributions, the only potential one over a Roth IRA? Perhaps you believe so (though this is obviously dependent on your state's tax rate), but I definitely do not, especially since we live in a state with no income tax.


Sure, those are things one should consider.



I was reacting to these exchanges you had upthread:

For us, we wanted to save, hence the 529. No other vehicle provides the financial benefits as a 529 for a family that wants to save for college.


Money is fungible. It does not matter whether the money used to pay for college was saved with that purpose in mind or not.



Mathematically, a 529 is an inferior vehicle from a terminal wealth standpoint in nearly every instance.




Mathematically, that statement about 529 being inferior is demonstrably false when you consider "absolute rights and wrongs."



Now, if we go back and introduce all the other factors you have rightfully raised, then there is a lot of gray areas.

I was fortunate enough to be able to max all my other tax-advantaged and contribute to a sizable 529 plan. and i do get a state tax break for doing so.

Without that, I probably would have focused on the retirement accounts first.



If people said something like:



"529 plans provide very good tax breaks, at least as good as retirement accounts, and sometimes better, when the money is used for college expenses, but be careful and consider all the other possible alternative scenario which might lead you to not be able to use them for college expenses, in which case you could come out worse financially", or something along those lines, I don't think we would have this long thread going.



Instead, they make hyperbolic statements like this:

"Mathematically, a 529 is an inferior vehicle from a terminal wealth standpoint in nearly every instance."



Which really does not help clarify the situation for anyone that is still reading this insufferable thread. While somewhat expected from some other posters here, I have come to expect more thoughtful analysis than that from you.

:sharebeer


Yes, I should have couched my statements more carefully.



In general, I do not believe 529 accounts to provide an adequate return for the risk they entail. The risk of not needing college funds for a number of reasons seems likely to outweigh the benefits they provide relative to other tax-advantaged accounts.



You didn't directly address the question I posed above: "So are you arguing that someone like yourself should make 529 contributions before Roth IRA contributions are maxed out?" Would you please do so?



Thank you, BTW. :beer

           Comment on Dabo Swinney: Clemson may have mistakenly given players banned substances by Michael E       Cache   Translate Page      
PED's are part of the system from HS to the pro's. The sports media knows it and are part of the coverup. One example is the fact that virtually nobody reported this: Steroids present in room of Garrett Reid when he died https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/eagles/2012/12/17/garrett-reid-andy-reid-philadelphia-eagles-steroids/1775483/ Someday a young true journalist will blow it open and make what happened in MLB or professional cycling look like child's play.

          Testing Java Microservice by Alex Soto, Andy Gumbrecht      Cache   Translate Page      
With traditional software unit tests, there's never a guarantee that an application will actually function correctly in the production environment. And when you add microservices, remote resources that are accessible over a network, into the mix, testing is more tricky. To make things even harder, microservices typically need to collaborate with additional network-based microservices, making testing even more challenging. In this session you'll learn test strategies that solve the most common issues you are likely to encounter when writing tests for microservices architecture. Also you'll learn how tools such as Arquillian, JUnit, Docker or techniques suck as service virtualization or consumer-driven testing can help you on this task. MicroServices testing Continuous Delivery # Alex Soto Alex is a software engineer at Red Hat. He is a passionate of Java world, software automation and he believes in the open source software model. Alex is the creator of NoSQLUnit project. He is a member of JSR374 (Java API for JSON Processing) Expert Group. Currently Alex is co-writing Testing Java Microservices book for Manning and he is an international speaker presenting his talks at software conferences like Devoxx, JavaOne, JavaZone or JavaLand. # Andy Gumbrecht Andy is a senior developer at Tomitr... === Original video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mH9TEXhmmwc Downloaded by http://huffduff-video.snarfed.org/ on Sat, 09 Feb 2019 20:56:24 GMT Available for 30 days after download

          21 Designers & Makers Fireside Chats Completed over at the Tavern Chat Podcast - 22 More on the Sheet ;)      Cache   Translate Page      


This afternoon was the 21st Designers & Makers Fireside Chat. There are 19 more scheduled between Monday, February 11th and Thursday, April 11th (and a handful more where we have to pin down a date.)

I've been extremely pleased with how the sessions have gone and I think they've gotten strong (and longer) as I've grown into the role of host, interviewer and fellow Tavern patron just chewing the fat with friends.

Here's a list with links of the Fireside Chats that have gone up on the Tavern Chat Podcast thus far:

Published on Feb 5, 2019
Today I had a fireside chat with Jerry - Noble Herald Frog of Frog God Games.

Codex of Aihrde $19.99  $5.00
The World of Aihrde, (Codex of Aihrde/map) is your storyboard. Its vibrant mythology, and an unfolding history, makes the World of Aihrde an unparalleled fantasy setting. With a wealth of playable material, Aihrde is like a tapestry unfolding, one that you can make your own! 
Rich in adventure hooks, Aihrde is like no other on the market today. It infuses character generation with an energy unique for its genre, and arms the game master with material that is both fixed and malleable. 
The world of Aihrde spins upon an earth-like axis of ancient civilizations where good and evil have struggled for countless years. It is a world that bears the markings of its past; where ancient evils slumber, stained with the power of eldritch wizardry; where gods dwell in bejeweled halls of wonderment, worshiped by men and women of all creeds; where dragons live in great dens of heaped treasure; where the new stands upon the ruins of the old in beds of ancient glory. 
The Codex of Aihrde includes everything you need to get started adventuring in one of the most expansive game settings you'll ever enjoy. 
The Codex is presented in two parts: 
Part 1 The Andanuth (roughly 102 pages): Here we learn the story of Aihrde, from its uttermost beginning to the present age. It follows the journey of All Father, the creation of the gods and the world. We learn who the gods are and how they interact long before the coming of the dwarves and man. The story covers the creation of these people and more and all their long journeys and travails from their arrival to the realms of the day. The Andanuth is generously sprinkled with stories and tales of gods and men, dwarves and goblins, war and peace. You'll not wonder what happened before...you'll know. 
Part 2 The Almanac (roughly 170 pages): In part 2 we dive into the particulars of the gods, the people, countries, places and realms of Aihrde. There are over 50 gods outlined for play, a dozen peoples including all your favorites (dwarves, elves, men, halflings, gnomes, orcs, goblins, giants, trolls, dragons and more). Each of 30 plus realms are intimately detailed with history, government, economy, military, present rulers and other specific information. Beyond that we have terrain that is detailed as well. 
Appendices: Several Appendices cover extra material such as detailed time line, calendar, weather patterns, languages, and flora of Aihrde.

Sound Off to the Editor

for Brooklyn Paper

To the Editor,

For some time now, Brooklyn has been in the midst of its own building boom, which has continued to drive economic growth all throughout the borough. But as the face of Brooklyn continues to change, the biggest question for stakeholders across the spectrum is how this development can be leveraged to spur opportunities for Brooklyn’s longtime residents to achieve meaningful employment.

We at Construction Workforce Project firmly believe that longtime Brooklynites should benefit from the rapid pace of development, which can only truly happen if construction job opportunities are made available to local residents, not just to workers commuting from outside the city.

But, the good news is that the construction industry is also changing. The industry’s recent shift from the restrictive union model to the open-shop hiring model has opened doors for Brooklynites to work in the field, earning wages and benefits far above that offered in other entry-level positions.

Stakeholders across Brooklyn have watched the borough change dramatically over the past few decades. As a new generation of Brooklynites moved in, fewer and fewer opportunities became available for the communities of color that had called Brooklyn home for decades. Those stakeholders also know that barriers to entry stand in the way of many workers gaining a job the many construction sites all around Brooklyn.

New developments always came with promises from developers and city politicians of new jobs for local residents. But when local residents applied for a position, they found they were not qualified because they were not in a union, consequently lacking the proper apprenticeship credits or training necessary to be considered.

However, the industry’s shift to open shop has meant more developers are free to work with safe, quality contractors, who have opened up the industry to those workers unable to join unions and access those employment opportunities.

Open-shop sites are statistically far more likely to hire a New York City–based and racially diverse workforce than their union counterparts. For reference, three out of four open-shop construction workers are black or Hispanic, and the same number are city residents. Now, construction sites around Brooklyn actually reflect the diversity of the borough, rather than the diversity of the suburban tri-state area.

The expansion of open shop has also meant more support for Brooklynites working on construction projects across the borough and the city. Thanks to new safety and skills training programs offered by open shop employers, more men and women are able to enter the industry. Open shop workers are able to earn a minimum wage of at least $20-per hour — which is much higher than the current state and federal minimum wages — on top of health-care programs and retirement packages.

And yet, despite all these benefits, the open shop and its workers have been relegated to afterthought status for many Brooklynites and their representatives. It’s only by bringing these conversations to the forefront of our agendas that meaningful policies will be put in place to protect the rights of open-shop workers and their families. We look forward to making this a priority for Brooklyn in 2019.

We need ‘Dreamers’

To the Editor,

On Jan. 23, the New York State Legislature finally passed the Dream Act. Yet, nearly every single Republican state Senator and Assembly member voted against it.

When it comes issues of immigration, New York Republicans, like the national party, continue to bury their heads in the sand, while millennials, the largest voting bloc in U.S. history, overwhelmingly support policies that would provide a pathway out of the shadows for young, undocumented immigrants.

For young so-called dreamers, the United States is the only home they’ve ever known, and we, as a party, need to start building bridges instead of plugging holes in our dilapidated, antiquated walls.

New York’s Dream Act allows undocumented children to qualify for tuition assistance, provided they meet certain requirements. They must attend a New York state high school for at least two years, graduate high school or a high-school equivalency program, apply to college within five years, and have at least one parent or guardian who legally immigrated to the United States, or is otherwise eligible for in-state tuition rates.

The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act is not about rewarding non-citizens over citizens, it doesn’t “devalue” what it means to be American. If anything, it fulfills the American dream for thousands of young people brought here by parents desperate to give their children a better life and a brighter future.

Current rhetoric espoused by prominent New York State Republicans is either willfully ignorant, politically malfeasant, morally wrong, or a combination of all three.

State Senate Minority Leader John Flannagan (R–Long Island) criticized passage of the bill by saying, “… [the Dream Act] will reward law-breaking illegal immigrants with free college tuition.”

Even more disheartening is the statement made by my own state Assemblywoman, Nicole Malliotakis (R–Bay Ridge), who said, “This is a misguided attempt to reject the needs of those who actually elected us to be here, and putting those that are here unlawfully ahead of them.” Assemblywoman Malliotakis, especially, should know better. As a daughter of immigrants, you’d think she’d be more invested in securing a better future for other sons and daughters of immigrants. Instead, she’s chosen to cast dreamers as “unlawful,” as if they had a choice in the matter.

She’s chosen political expediency over doing the right thing. Sad.

Pitting young undocumented immigrants against natural-born U.S. citizens is a tactic straight out of the Trump playbook, one that’s contributed to the political wipeout of the New York State Republican Party. According to the New York City Mayor’s Office of Immigration Affairs, in 2017, dreamers contributed $4.7 billion to the city’s gross domestic product and they account for more than $2 billion in total earnings every year. Not only is support for the Act good political sense, it’s morally right, and it makes sound economic sense as well.

Instead of alienating and exiling undocumented immigrants, the party that ended slavery and championed liberty for all should be embracing them. Their values are our values. They want to go to school, learn, graduate, get a job, pay taxes, own a home, and raise a family. Dreamers are our friends, our schoolmates, our co-workers, our neighbors, and if you go to John Jay College like I do, are fierce advocates for justice. Time and again, dreamers continue to exceed expectations while the deck continues to be stacked against them.

Instead of taking issue with tuition aid going to dreamers, Republicans should take issue with the limited amount of tuition aid available, or the failure to make City of New York and State of New York schools more affordable. Make that your battle cry.

Inclusion is a much more powerful message than division.

Ronald Reagan knew that.
